U.S. condemns killings; Navy holding hijackers

A Seattle couple and two other American yachters killed by Somali pirates early Tuesday were longtime sailors whose passion for the high seas outweighed any fear of the risks, friends said. The yacht’s owners, Scott Adam, 70, and his wife, Jean, 66, of Marina Del Rey, Calif., near Los Angeles, and Phyllis Macay, 59, and her partner, Bob Riggle, 67, both from Seattle, were shot to death after pirates boarded their yacht Friday and took Scott Adam them hostage several hundred miles off the coast of Somalia south of Oman. Macay was wounded but alive when Navy SEALs boarded the yacht after the shooting, but she died later, her niece said she was told by U.S. military Jean Adam authorities. “Bob and Phyllis were very nice folks, skilled sailors, the kind of easy-going people you would want on a long cruise,” said Ken Hays, mayor of Sequim. Hays, who is also an architect in Sequim, had sailed his 36-foot Beneteau yacht to Hawaii in a race. Hays flew home, and Riggle and Macay returned the vessel to Sequim. Other friends, family and fellow sailors remembered the four as adventurous, with a zest for life, but also as meticulous planners who were well-aware of the dangers of the open seas. The Adams had been sailing full-time on their 58-foot sailing sloop the Quest since December 2004 after retiring. The Adams took Bibles with them to

NAIROBI, Kenya — A pirate fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a U.S. Navy destroyer shadowing a hijacked yacht with a Seattle couple and two other Americans aboard Tuesday. Then gunfire erupted, the military said, and U.S. special forces rushed to the yacht only to find the four hostages either fatally wounded or dead. The experienced yacht enthusiasts from Seattle and California are the first Americans killed by Somali pirates since the start of attacks off East Africa several years ago. Turn



distribute to far-flung corners of the world. They often traveled with friends and on this trip were joined by Riggle and Macay. Macay and Riggle had left Seattle on Riggle’s sailboat for a world voyage in September 2007 but in recent years had been crewing on separate boats, said Macay’s friend Cynthia Kirkham of Seattle. The two periodically returned home on visits, she said, adding that Macay stayed with her last June. At St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Santa Monica, where the Adams were longtime parishioners and Jean Adam sang in the choir, Monsignor Lloyd Torgerson described the killings as heartbreaking during morning Mass.

‘Major arctic outbreak’ predicted on Peninsula Most snowfall expected in Sequim, Forks, PA By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Old Man Winter isn’t finished with the North Olympic Peninsula just yet, forecasters say. The National Weather Service calls for 6 inches to 12 inches of snow in the lowlands of Clallam and Jefferson counties by this afternoon, with icy road conditions persisting through the rest of the workweek. Tuesday’s icy precipitation, with a dusting of snow in some areas, is only a faint foreshadowing of the blast to come, forecasters said, and the worst of it is expected in Clallam County. A winter storm warning is in effect for all of Western Washington through 10 a.m. Thursday. A warning means a winter storm — with snow and frigid temperatures — is imminent. Danny Mercer, a meteorologist with

the National Weather Service in Seattle, said the North Olympic Peninsula will get the most snow because arctic air from the Fraser River Valley in Southwestern British Columbia will slam into the Olympic Mountains. “This is a major arctic outbreak,” Mercer said.

Heaviest snowfall He predicted the heaviest snowfall in Sequim, Port Angeles and Forks. He expects about 6 inches of snow in Port Townsend. The Weather Service expects up to 12 inches to 18 inches of new snow in the Olympic Mountains — including Hurricane Ridge, which had 95 inches of snow at the ridge sensor Tuesday — and 2 feet in the Cascades.

PORT ANGELES — Next time you buy something — a pair of shoes, a car, a couch — consider the effect you’re having on the community. If you live in Port Angeles and you choose to buy it there, you’re helping to boost your local economy; drive out of town or shop


online, and you’re sending your money away. That’s the message of a budding “Buy Local” campaign organized by PA Forward, a city-sponsored committee represented by volunteer Mike Edwards during Tuesday morning’s Port Angeles Business Association meeting. Back in March 2009, Michelle Long of Bellingham spoke at Penin-

Sustainable Connections’ membership includes businesses, farms and community leaders interested in building up both economic prosperity and quality of life, Long explained. Edwards, for his part, told the

PABA members gathered over breakfast at Joshua’s Restaurant that “think local” initiatives have likewise been established in many cities — and Port Angeles is poised to reap the benefits of its own program.

EDWARD ZIGO, 84, the New York City detective who cracked the notorious Son of Sam case in the 1970s by acting on a hunch about a parking ticket and arrested killer David Berkowitz, has died. Mr. Zigo died Saturday of cancer at his Lynbrook, N.Y., home surrounded by his family, his wife, Mr. Zigo Eileen in 1977 BrunelliZigo, said Tuesday. Mr. Zigo retired from the NYPD in 1982, and his career became the stuff of legend. His family recalled tales of his detective work with awe and pride. He parlayed his knowledge into a second career working on TV and film projects about the story and other crime tales. He even had bit parts in some movies. It all started back in the sweltering summer of 1977. Over 13 months in 1976 and 1977, the self-proclaimed Son of Sam had taken responsibility for a string of handgun assaults that left seven young people dead and seven others critically wounded. Mr. Zigo had a hunch that a small-potatoes lead would lead him to the killer. Clues were meager and a

city was on edge, so Mr. Zigo decided to question a young man named David Berkowitz, whose car, with an outof-city registration, had been ticketed for parking illegally in Brooklyn the night of the last shooting. “According to Ed, he walked in and said, ‘Hi, David, I’m Detective Zigo,’” his family recounted. “And Berkowitz said, ‘Hi, Ed. I’m the Son of Sam.’” In an interview with The Associated Press in the 1980s, Mr. Zigo said that when he finally confronted Berkowitz, he wasn’t at all what he expected. “He was this little schlub of a kid, as nice and soft-spoken as could be,” he recalled.

Dr. Nathanson was an obstetrician-gynecologist who in 1969 helped found the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, now called NARAL ProChoice America. It was while working at an abortion clinic that Dr. Nathanson said he developed misgivings about the procedure. He said the use of ultrasound images led to his change of heart. He was a frequent visitor to the Ronald Reagan White House and narrated the 1986 anti-abortion film “The Silent Scream,” which graphically depicts the abortion of a 12-week-old fetus.

Participants in Port Angeles’ annual Derby Days parade this year will be marching in a different location. The bands, equestrian units and floats will start at Francis and Fourth streets, move south on Francis to Eighth Street, then west on Eighth about a mile to Oak Street, where it will end. The Port Angeles Downtown Association has criticized the move from the former route mainly on First and Front streets because it takes spectators out of the retail area to a residential area — and, it said, the spectators leave “litter like mad.”

Gadhafi vows to fight to ‘last drop of blood’ Libyan leader calls supporters to impose control over capital By Maggie Michael and Sarah El Deeb The Associated Press

CAIRO — A defiant Moammar Gadhafi vowed to fight to his “last drop of blood” and roared at supporters to strike back against Libyan protesters to defend his embattled regime Tuesday, signaling an escalation of the crackdown that has thrown the capital into scenes of mayhem, wild shooting and bodies in the streets. The speech by the Libyan leader — who shouted and pounded his fists on the podium — was an all-out call for his backers to impose control over the capital and take back other cities. After a week of upheaval, protesters backed by defecting army units have claimed control over almost the entire eastern half of Libya’s 1,000-mile Mediterranean coast, including several oil-producing areas. “You men and women who love Gadhafi . . . get out of your homes and fill the streets,” he said. “Leave your homes and attack them in their lairs.” Celebratory gunfire by Gadhafi supporters rang out in the capital of Tripoli after the leader’s speech, while in protester-held Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest

city, people threw shoes at a screen showing his address, venting their contempt. State TV showed a crowd of Gadhafi supporters in Tripoli’s Green Square, raising his portrait and waving flags as they swayed to music after the address.

Remained home after dark Residents contacted by The Associated Press said no antigovernment protesters ventured out of their homes after dark, and gun-toting guards manned checkpoints with occasional bursts of gunfire heard throughout the city. International alarm rose over the crisis, which sent oil prices soaring to the highest level in more than two years Tuesday and sparked a scramble by European and other countries to get their citizens out of the North African nation. The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting that ended with a statement condemning the crackdown, expressing “grave concern” and calling for an “immediate end to the violence” and steps to address the legitimate demands of the Libyan people. Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel called Gadhafi’s speech “very, very appalling,” saying it

“amounted to him declaring war on his own people.” Libya’s own deputy ambassador at the U.N., who now calls for Gadhafi’s ouster, has urged the world body to enforce a no-fly zone over the country to protect protesters. “This violence is completely unacceptable,” added Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Gadhafi’s retaliation has already been the harshest in the Arab world to the wave of antigovernment protests sweeping the Middle East.

Almost 300 killed Nearly 300 people have been killed, according to a partial count by the New York-based Human Rights Watch. In two nights of bloodshed, Tripoli residents described a rampage by pro-Gadhafi militiamen — a mix of Libyans and foreign mercenaries — who shot on sight anyone found in the streets and opened fire from speeding vehicles at people watching from windows of their homes. In a sign of the extent of the breakdown in Gadhafi’s regime, one of his closest associates, Abdel Fattah Younis, his interior minister and commander of the powerful Thunderbolt commando brigade, announced in Benghazi that he was defecting and other armed forces should join the revolt.

Earthquake death toll reaches 75 in New Zealand; search continues By Kristen Gelineau The Associated Press

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand — Some screamed from inside collapsed buildings. One woman used her mobile phone to call her children to say goodbye. Others tapped on the rubble to communicate with those on the outside. Search teams used their bare hands, dogs, heavy cranes and earth movers today to pull 120 survivors from the rubble of a powerful earthquake in one of New Zealand’s largest cities. Officials raised the death toll to at least 75, with 300 others listed as missing. As rescuers dug through the crumbled concrete, twisted metal and huge mounds of brick across Christchurch, officials feared that

the death toll could rise further, ranking the magnitude 6.3 earthquake among the island nation’s worst in 80 years. “There are bodies littering the streets, they are trapped in cars, crushed under rubble, and where they are clearly deceased our focus . . . has turned to the living,” police Superintendent Russell Gibson said.

State of national emergency Prime Minister John Key said at a news conference that 75 people were confirmed to have been killed, with 55 of them identified. He declared a state of national emergency, giving the government wider powers to take control of a rescue and recovery operation that was growing by the hour. Rescuers are concentrating on at least a dozen buildings that col-

lapsed or were badly damaged. In one of the worst, a camera inserted into the rubble showed images of people still alive, Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said. He said 120 people were rescued from wrecked buildings, while more bodies were also recovered. Some survivors emerged without a scratch, while others had to have a limb amputated before they could be freed. The quake toppled the spire of the city’s historic stone cathedral and flattened tall buildings. “People were covered in rubble, covered in several tons of concrete,” said Web designer Nathaniel Boehm, who was outside on his lunch break when the quake struck just before 1 p.m. He saw the eaves of buildings cascade onto the street, burying people below. “It was horrific.”

A PHOENIX JURY convicted an Iraqi immigrant of second-degree murder Tuesday for running over and killing his daughter in a case termed an “honor killing” by prosecutors who said the father carried out the attack because he believed his daughter had become too Westernized. Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 50, also was convicted of aggravated assault for injuries suffered by the mother of his daughter’s boyfriend during the October 2009 incident. Maricopa County prosecutors told jurors that he mowed down Noor Almaleki, 20, with his Jeep Cherokee because he believed she brought dishonor to the family.

U.S. SEN. JOHN Thune said Tuesday that he won’t join what’s expected to be a crowded GOP field of presidential hopefuls next year, concluding he would have a difficult time fundraising and that President Barack Obama would be tough to beat. Thune was seen as one of several potential challengers to Obama in 2012. His exit is the first clear signal of who will — and who will not — compete for the Republicans’ nomination. Thune, 50, told The Associated Press Tuesday that he’s not as recognizable as other possible candidates and wouldn’t be able to raise enough money for the race.

FLORIDA POLICE SAID a brawl between roommates over Girl Scout cookies led to assault charges against one of them. According to the Naples (Fla.) Daily News, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office reported that 31-year-old Hersha Howard woke up her roommate early Sunday and accused her of eating her Thin Mints. They argued and deputies said that it turned physical with Howard chasing her roommate with scissors and hitting her repeatedly with a board and then a sign. Police said the roommate’s husband tried to separate them. The roommate said she gave the cookies to Howard’s children.

AN EVANGELICAL PASTOR walking his two schnauzers in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, was shot to death by a gunman who tried to steal the dogs, Honduran authorities said Tuesday. Witnesses told police that the assailant got out of a car and tried to snatch the two schnauzer puppies from pastor Carlos Marroquin on Monday. Marroquin refused to hand over the dogs, and the gunman opened fire. Neighbors said the dogs then ran across the street to their home, and the shooter fled in the vehicle. Police are seeking the gunman and another person who drove the car. Schnauzers can sell for about $500 in Honduras, where the average monthly salary is $311.

Port Angeles focus, saying one “think local” goal is to prevent downtown from becoming “a ghost town,” with even more empty storefronts than it already has. Keeping a store open — even if it isn’t locally owned, as in the case of the nowclosed Gottschalks — is better than a deserted space, he said. May still thinks Sequim merchants should be on the PA Forward map, even if Dungeness Valley Creamery milk and other local produce can be found at Country Aire Natural Foods at 117 E. First St. in Port Angeles. “It’s crazy” to exclude

Sequim, he said. Edwards, though, forged ahead with his presentation, telling PABA members that PA Forward is in the “gaining support” stage of its effort to get people to “think local first.” This means planning a public forum on the campaign, holding a membership drive to bring merchants on board and finding more advocates to help promote the initiative among businesspeople and the rest of the buying public.

Needing seed money “We’ve created a budget,” Edwards said, “and we’ve looked for some seed money” from the city, though he

declined to indicate the amount of either one. Edwards and the other PA Forward members are volunteering their time, so the funding would go into promotional materials such as a “Top 10 Reasons to Think, Shop and Buy Local” list, a “Choose Local” PowerPoint presentation, a website, window signs and fliers, stickers, buttons, loyalty punch cards and merchant maps. All of this is about “keeping the image of ‘buy local’ in front of your customers,” Edwards noted. PA Forward is “maybe two or three months from having a campaign out on

the streets,” he said, adding that once the program is established, the business community could take over and run it. A key goal, of course, is to keep Port Angeles’ “buy local” mind-set going, and growing, far into the future. All of this will start with each resident spending money in — and on — his or her community. “We want a more conscious thought given,” Edwards said, “to why you might choose to shop and buy locally.”

Mercer said. Although things will dry out Friday and Saturday, Mercer predicted icy conditions to persist for two or three days.

Riggle once took a colleague’s family sailing when their daughter was diagnosed with cancer to get their minds off their troubles. “That was just a small indicator about how he treated people,” he said.

Macay, who never married, took a sabbatical about three years ago. She and Riggle were romantically involved when they first met but later were friends who sailed together, Kirkham said.

That it could be illegal to let a runaway child stay at your house?

ing the scourge of piracy in waters off the Horn of Africa.

Four U.S. warships Pirates had hijacked the 58-foot yacht Quest south of Oman on Friday. Since then, four U.S. warships, including the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, and sky-high drones shadowed the vessel’s movement as pirates tried to sail it to the Somali shore. U.S. officials negotiated with the captors via radio. But at 8 a.m. East Africa time Tuesday (9 p.m. Monday PST), a rocket-propelled grenade was fired from the Quest at the USS Sterett, a guided-missile destroyer 600 yards away. The RPG missed, and almost immediately afterward, small-arms fire was heard coming from the yacht, said Vice Adm. Mark Fox, commander of the U.S. 5th Fleet in Bahrain. Several pirates then appeared on deck with their hands up. U.S. naval forces boarded the vessel and tried to provide lifesaving care to the Americans, but they died, Fox said. No U.S. forces were injured or killed. Thirteen pirates were captured and detained Tuesday, and two other pirates had boarded the USS Sterett on Monday to negotiate, Fox said. A member of a U.S. special operations force killed one of the pirates with a knife, Fox said. A second pirate was also killed, and the bodies of two other pirates were discovered onboard, bringing to 19 the total number of pirates involved. The U.S. military didn’t say how those two died, and it was not known if the pirates had fought among themselves.

Court rejects campaign disclosure challenge The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected an appeal challenging Washington’s campaign disclosure laws — a decision state leaders called a victory for transparency in the elections process. The court let stand without comment a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the state’s disclosure requirements for political committees, independent expenditures and political advertising, which were approved by voters in 1972.

Challenge Human Life of Washington challenged the requirements as a violation of its free-speech rights. The group didn’t want to reveal its donors in a 2008 campaign opposing an assistedsuicide ballot measure. In an October ruling, the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the disclosure requirements “have become

an important part of our First Amendment tradition.” “There is a substantial relationship between Washington State’s interest in informing the electorate and the definitions and disclosure requirements it employs to advance that interest,” the judges wrote. The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold that ruling drew praise from state officials. “We’re pleased that our state’s campaign finance disclosure laws have again been affirmed and the people of Washington will continue to be able to follow the money in ballot measure campaigns,” said Dan Sytman, a spokesman for state Attorney General Rob McKenna. In a statement Tuesday, Secretary of State Sam Reed welcomed the development, adding that “sunshine in government and in our elections is part of our culture in this state.” Human Life of Washington CEO Dan Kennedy

posted a message on the organization’s website Tuesday warning that the outcome of the case could set a precedent around the country for “imposing layers of burdens in the name of disclosure.” “A sad day for Lady Liberty,” Kennedy wrote.

Radio ads Human Life had wanted to sponsor radio ads about the issue of assisted suicide leading up to the November 2008 election, when Initiative 1000, the “Death with Dignity” initiative, appeared on the ballot. The group argued that it shouldn’t have to register as a political action committee and disclose its donors because its ads didn’t specifically reference I-1000. The initiative passed with nearly 60 percent of the vote and took effect in March 2009. It allows terminally ill people to obtain lethal prescription drugs for ending their own lives.

As the novel opens, Henry Lee, an elderly Chinese-American Seattleite, witnesses a discovery at the Panama Hotel: crates of belongings left by Japanese interned during World War II. This event triggers memories of his first love, a Japanese-American named Keiko, and the anti-Japanese sentiment the couple faced in the 1940s, both from the Seattle community at large and from Henry’s Chinese father.

Clallam funds more treatment options $311,500 approved to aid mental, drug problems By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County approved $311,500 in new contracts to help low-income residents who have drug addictions, brain disorders or both. The money comes from the one-tenth of 1 percent sales tax that county commissioners enacted in 2006 after the state Legislature approved it. “These are all funded under the mental health program fund,” Commis-

sioner Mike Chapman said. “They’re dedicated tax dollars for these services.” The contracts that commissioners approved Tuesday are: ■  $123,000 to West End Outreach Services for outpatient service for adults with co-occurring disorders. ■  $118,000 to True Star Behavioral Health Services for services to juveniles in the court system. ■  $53,500 to the Volunteers in Medicine of the Olympics Clinic for psychiatric nurse practitioner services for adults with co-

occurring disorders. ■  $17,000 to West End Outreach Services for services to juveniles in the court system. Treatment providers from around the county bid for the contracts. A 16-member Chemical Dependency and Mental Health Program Fund Advisory Board recommends the contracts, which are granted by the Health and Human Services Department and approved by commissioners. Commissioners approved $382,500 in similar contracts Feb. 15. This year’s contracts total $872,500. “Apparently, we’re still one of the people setting sort of the trend at the state

Death and Memorial Notice Donald Lane Dolf June 27, 1930 February 20, 2011 Donald Lane Dolf, our beloved husband, father, and grandparent, left us peacefully in his sleep under the loving care of his wife, Dorothy, and the supportive staff at Sequim Health and Rehabilitation Center, this Sunday evening, February 20, 2011. Donald was born in Glendora, California. He was preceded in death by his parents, Milton J. Dolf and Donnis I. Dolf, and his older brother, Reginald Dolf. Donald served active duty as a seaman apprentice in the United States Navy from October 1947 until February 1950. Upon his honorable discharge from the Navy, Donald was drafted into the United States Army, where he was stationed in Korea from May 1951 to April 1953. In 1953, Donald met his lovely bride-to-be, Dorothy Fay Wolfinbarger Dolf, who stuck by his side for 56 years. Their union produced three beautiful daughters:

Mr. Dolf Donald’s eldest, Donna Lynn Dolf; his middle child, Linda Rae Myers; and his youngest, Patricia Ann Anderson; who blessed him with six fantastic grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Their names, by order of age, are, Jennifer, Amy, Danny, Tina, Jeremy, Tim, Taylor, Rochelle, Haley, Marilyn, and Connor. Donald worked for Miller Brewing Co. for 33 years and honed his bowling skills as a part of the Miller Credit Union League. He spent many good days with his   daughters teaching them

how to bowl. Donald was a hard man who had a difficult time showing his love for his family. He expressed his devotion by giving of himself as a “Mr. Fix-It” you could always count on. Donald was a talented handyman and carpenter and enjoyed building miniature doll furniture to display his wife’s many sewing creations. Donald loved the heat of the desert and a fresh cup of coffee with his paper early in the morning. He went on long walks with his wife daily, together discovering trinkets on the side of the road he would later restore into his treasures. He inspired a love for all things Mario by spending countless hours sharing his passion for video gaming. His grandchildren fondly recall his goofy attempts to frighten them when removing his dentures. Donald will be missed dearly. A memorial service for family will be held at Tacoma National Cemetery at a future date to be announced.

Death and Memorial Notice Harold Showers Jr. September 27, 1929 February 12, 2011 Harold Showers Jr., 81, of Port Angeles passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2011.

Showers Dunham of Everett, Washington. He served in the Navy, including during the Korean War, for eight years, and later worked at Nippon Pulp & Paper for many years before he retired. Harold loved to bowl and was an active league member for more 40 years at P.A. Lanes. He had many friends from the bowling alley and had coffee daily there until it closed. He then made Fair-

mount Restaurant his new coffee stop. He became like family there. He is survived by his son, Jerry, and daughter, Cheryl; grandchildren, Travis, Nateal, and Tiana; and two great-grandchildren and other family members and close family friend and caregiver, Lisa Hansen; and last, but not least, his beloved dog, Charlie.

Priest Road In other news, commissioners approved a temporary closure of Priest Road near Sequim in late March. The road will be closed for up to seven calendar days between March 15 and March 31 for the replacement of an irrigation ditch crossing. County Engineer Ross Tyler has said the crossing, which is four-tenths of a mile north of Washington Street, needs to be replaced before the irrigation season begins. A resident e-mailed the commissioners’ office asking the county to consider confining the work to the evening, Doherty said. “I think that would actually cost taxpayers an inordinate amount of money to

Historic district

The city filed an application with the state Advisory Council on Historic Preservation in August. Meanwhile, Jeanne LaBrecque was appointed to the Public Health Advisory Committee. Steven Kernes was reappointed to the Civil Service Commission. “We’re fortunate — Mr. Kernes is a former sheriff — that he continues to volunteer his service on the Civil Service Commission,” Chapman said. Kernes was Clallam County’s sheriff from 1978 to 1990.

Death and Memorial Notice Harry Gordon Bunnell July 4, 1918 February 17, 2011 Harry Gordon Bunnell died peacefully at home on Thursday, February 17, 2011, at the age of 92. A lifelong resident of Clallam County, Gordon was born on July 4, 1918, to Harry Newton Bunnell and Gladys Fay (Cays) Bunnell in Sequim. Gordon attended elementary school in Sequim until the age of 8. When his family moved to Port Angeles, he attended Washington Elementary School and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1936. A hard worker even at an early age, Gordon raised rabbits, chopped wood and had a paper route delivering the Port Angeles Evening News and The Seattle Times during the Depression. Gordon’s employment with ITT Rayonier (then named Olympic Forest Products Pulp Mill) began in 1936 in the Finishing Room. In 1942, he was inducted into the U.S. Army and was stationed at Fort Lawton in Seattle and Excursion Inlet in Alaska. He was part of the 711th Military Police Battalion. After his discharge in

Mr. Bunnell 1946, Gordon returned to Port Angeles and resumed his position at Rayonier Mill.

On July 8, 1950, Gordon married Margaret Jane Liddane in Mukilteo, Washington. Soon thereafter, the couple moved to what became their lifelong home in Port Angeles, where they raised their two girls. Gordy devoted himself to his family and friends, who enjoyed receiving his letters and phone calls. Some of his favorite things were fishing, his cars and boats, gardening, tinkering in the garage that he built in 1954, music, dancing,

singing, and good food. He was a life member of Elks Naval Lodge #353 and a member of the Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers. Gordon will be remembered as a thoughtful, caring and affectionate person. He was meticulous and honest in all things. Life will not be the same without him.

A challenging ride yields bounty RECENTLY, SOMEONE ASKED for advice about floating the Sol Duc River. I said be sure to put the Pat plug in your boat. Neal Floating the Sol Duc is a thrilling whitewater adventure. It can be even more exciting when your boat is filling up with water. Sure, water only weighs 8 pounds per gallon, but it adds up in a hurry and sloshes back and forth, throwing you off balance. Rowing a drift boat is like a lot of other things. Once you lose balance you lose control. You want to stop in a calm place where you can find your plug and get control, but you have to slow down to anchor up. Drop your anchor in the wrong hole, and it could get stuck and flip you over if the water’s

fast enough. Maybe you’ll cut your anchor free, leaving the rope for other anglers to snag up and break their gear off on. While you spin wildly along until hearing from the front of the boat, someone wishes to employ the restroom facilities. Except there are none. With a plea of desperation, you approach the rocky shore at high speed. Sometimes the Sol Duc looks like it’s more rock than river. The rocks are composed of undersea basalt, metamorphosed sediments and glacial erratics that can really ring your bell if you hit them right. You never know how fast you’re going until you stop. The impact slams the crew in a heap. The fleeing passengers Sequim resident Rick attempt to exit the craft.

Peninsula Voices Setting it straight A FEB. 20 LETTER to the editor, “Critical Thinking,” contained several editing errors. ■ It had the wrong date for an earlier letter, “Magical Thinking.” That letter was published Feb. 16, not Feb. 6. ■ It said the Elwha dams were “illegal.” They were not. State law required fish ladders, but Thomas Aldwell, who built the Elwha Dam, reached an agreement with the state fisheries department that allowed him to instead build a fish hatchery, which was later shut down. ■ The letter incorrectly said studies concluded fish ladders could not be built. They could have been built, but an environmental impact study concluded they would not have been effective in restoring the salmon run, according to Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes. ■ James River did not choose a buyout of the dams, as the letter said. The company was told by Congress that the dams would not be re-licensed and the U.S. government pur-

It’s just this sort of behavior that could explain the recent rash of Bigfoot sightings in the area. Do not be afraid. Like the Bigfoot, tourists are large, friendly and curious. They come to the North Olympic Peninsula because it’s one of the last best places where you can still catch a steelhead. These seagoing rainbow trout run up the rivers in winter. This is a time when much of the area’s 200-plus inches of rain per year can hit all at once, with a tailwind. It’s an atmospheric condition you’d have to be out of your mind to fish in, otherwise known as “steelhead weather”. Knowing steelhead fishermen are insane is a key to understanding their behavior. For example, if you are on the river and the crowds of tourist fishermen are so thick it appears you are about to be rammed by

chased the dams. Also, a sentence in the Feb. 16 letter, “Magical Thinking,” should have read: “Precious resources are motivating local schools, our community college, the Olympic National Park staff, leaders of civic groups and the tribes to feverishly fard lipstick on a pig.” The word “lard” was mistakenly substituted for “fard.” Paul Gottlieb, weekday Commentary editor

Rep.’s response On Feb. 6, the Peninsula Daily News published a letter to the editor [“Critical of reps”] that expressed deserved concern over HB 1366, which is cosponsored by state Rep. Kevin Van De Wege and state Rep. Steve Tharinger. This bill could have a deleterious effect on CareNet and other privately funded volunteer organizations that assist pregnant women and their babies. The writer’s relevant letter needs no embellishment; however, Kevin Van De Wege’s answer to the PDN’s

request for a response to Marv Chastain’s letter merits comment. Mr. Van De Wege said, “I have requested that the Peninsula Daily News hold this letter until an amendment on this legislation is drafted. They refused.” Is it criticism by a private citizen that disturbs Van De Wege, or is it simply dissent that he finds

so objectionable? Whether Van De Wege likes it or not, he is accountable to the citizens of the 24th District for his political activities. His desire and specific request to suppress the exchange of information and opinion is shameful. May we assume that Kevin Van De Wege will not be giving lessons in civics

another boat, do not be alarmed. They probably just want to see what you are using for bait. Maybe you should take a tip from rush-hour driving on the freeway and put rear view mirrors on your boat to avoid collisions. Be sure to bring a lunch on your Sol Duc River float trip. You never know when you might enjoy a waterlogged sandwich soaked in bilge water. Include a survival kit with anti-anxiety medication, a valid will and a notebook to jot down any final thoughts to loved ones. That — with a boat plug and a rear-view mirror — could make or break your trip. It’ll all be worthwhile when the steelhead is roasting over the coals. ________ Pat Neal is a North Olympic Peninsula fishing guide and “wilderness gossip columnist.” Neal can be reached at 360683-9867 or e-mail at Pat’s column appears here every Wednesday.

The right time to don those hiking shoes AS WINTER BEGINS to fade, here are three good options for an early springtime outdoor outing in Olympic National Park:

West Shore, Lake Mills


Blair What: A hike along the shoreline of a lake that won’t be there in a couple of years. Where: Go west on U.S. Highway 101 past Port Angeles to Olympic Hot Springs Road (erroneously called Elwha River Road), just before crossing the Elwha River. Turn left on Olympic Hot Springs Road and follow it past the Elwha Ranger Station, cross the river and climb in switchbacks to the Elwha Dam, turn and follow the road to the boat launch and trailhead. Length: 3.8 miles, round-trip

Beginning elevation: 615 feet Highest elevation: 700 feet Maps: USGS Hurricane Hill Notes: Though the trail may be around for years to come, the lakeshore it follows isn’t likely to be there much longer. Once the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams are removed — that work begins in a few months — this trail is likely to be just another lowland forest walk, with the Elwha River rattling along in its ancient bed farther away. But before that happens, this is a good snow-free walk for hikers who haven’t been out for a while and are looking to get in tune for springtime. Permits: You’ll likely be asked to pay a $15 fee at the Elwha River entrance station to Olympic National Park. Pets aren’t permitted on park trails.

beside Lake Crescent. Where: From Port Angeles take U.S. 101 west to mile marker 232 and turn right onto East Beach Road. Following this winding road for 3.2 miles, just past the Log Cabin Resort, you will find the sign for the Spruce Railroad Trail, turn left. The parking area is near private homes just a mile ahead. Length: 8.2 miles, round trip Beginning elevation: 740 feet Highest elevation: 740 feet Maps: USGS Lake Crescent Notes: The Spruce Railroad Trail is usually quiet this time of year, where you’ll likely see more wildlife than other hikers. It’s an excellent walk for families with younger children because the elevation gain is minimal and the route is easily followed. Keep a close eye on the kids where the trail gets close to the lake. Permits: This is one of the few trails in Olympic National Park where an entrance fee is

not required.

Hurricane Ridge Hurricane Ridge is probably the easiest and most convenient spot for a springtime adventure in the snow, made even nicer this year because the road is open throughout the week. This means you can plan a midweek outing of several days and will likely have some awesome backcountry virtually to yourself. You’ll need to pack your home on your back, of course, and perhaps hike a few miles before you can ski or snowshoe. Two things to consider in your planning: n You can’t leave your car on the Ridge overnight. You’ll have to park it about 2 miles down the road.

Bill seeks to clarify pregnancy services Centers’ offerings would need to be spelled out By Robin Hindery

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — A bill related to Washington’s limited-service pregnancy centers appears poised to reach the House floor in the coming weeks, forcing lawmakers to tackle a hot-button issue in the midst of already contentious budget negotiations. The bill would require centers to notify patients up-front of the services they do not provide, including abortions, abortion referrals and comprehensive birth control. Violators could face a court-ordered injunction. The bill is currently in the House Rules Committee, but supporters said they are confident it will receive a floor vote before a

March 7 deadline. “I would imagine it will happen fairly soon,” Rep. Judy Clibborn, the bill’s main sponsor, said Friday. Limited-service pregnancy centers, which are not licensed medical facilities, offer services such as ultrasounds and pregnancy tests, often for free. Many are run by groups that openly oppose abortion. According to the bill, some of the centers have reportedly “misled people about the nature of their services and have withheld health care records, including the results of pregnancy tests, from individuals seeking services.” “Real women are being harmed by lack of information and lack of access to

pregnancy information, which can delay a woman’s decision to terminate her pregnancy or her access to prenatal care,” said Melanie Smith, a lobbyist for NARAL Pro-Choice Washington, which supports the bill. “Yes, there are budgetary problems in the state, but there’s always a budget to be dealt with, and we can’t wait around while women are being harmed.”

46 throughout state NARAL estimates there are at least 46 pregnancy centers located throughout the state. In addition to disclosing the services they offer, both verbally and in writing, the bill also would require centers to inform patients of their pregnancy test results immediately after the tests are administered. Clibborn, D-Mercer Island, said there would never be a “perfect time” to

take up controversial legislation but that she was attempting to address a pressing health concern. But critics said Washington cannot afford to jeopardize a service that provides a safety net to women in need as well as free health care to the state. Washington is facing an estimated $5 billion deficit in the next two-year budget. “While Washington taxpayers foot the bill, it’s women who will ultimately pay the price,” said Melinda Delahoyde, executive director of Care Net, a nationwide Christian pregnancy center network that offers counseling on alternatives to abortion. “Targeting these centers flies in the face of common sense.” Care Net’s 38 affiliated centers in Washington provide an estimated $18.6 million worth of free services to women each year, Delahoyde said.

Opponents also have argued that the bill places undue burden on private businesses. “I’m really concerned we’re going down this road to try to regulate private industry,” state Rep. Joe Schmick, R-Colfax, said during the measure’s Feb. 10 hearing in the House Health Care and Wellness Committee. But supporters insisted they aren’t trying to put the centers out of business or suppress their message. “There’s no requirement in the bill for them to change the information they do give to women; they can choose to say whatever they want about terminating a pregnancy,” said Lauren Simonds, executive director of NARAL ProChoice Washington. “We just want women to know what they’re not going to get at these centers, so they will not be deceived.”

Clibborn described her bill as a straightforward regulatory measure that deals with disclosure requirements — the kind of legislation she and her colleagues see frequently. “The only reason it’s getting so much attention is because it’s based on services to pregnant women,” she said. The Legislature’s Democratic leadership recently decided to shelve a nearly identical Senate bill and focus instead on advancing the House version — a relatively common practice as legislative deadlines approach, said Jeff Reading, communications director for Senate Democrats. In a Feb. 11 briefing with reporters, state Rep. Larry Springer, D-Kirkland, predicted the bill would make a splash if it comes before the full House. “It will certainly generate a very heated floor debate,” he said.

Peninsula Daily News for Wednesday, February 23, 2011






Going for that handicap index INTERESTED IN BECOMING a more serious and committed golfer, I decided to find out just what it takes to establish a handicap index. It didn’t hurt that I have Michael received a few e-mails from Carman newcomers to the area asking about how to get involved with the local golf scene. My usual response is to find a course that you enjoy playing and try to join their men’s or women’s club if you can afford it, or to talk directly with course staffers about finding other singles to pair up with. I was surprised to find that players must belong to USGA-sanctioned clubs in order to establish a handicap index. This being news to me may sound wildly uneducated for a golf columnist, but I would still consider myself a trifle ignorant to many of the finer points of the game. I’ve never belonged to a golf club and when I worked at Port Ludlow, my focus was on keeping the carts clean and the driving range clear. My scores usually end up 15 to 30 shots over par, in the typical range of the bogey golfer or “duffer.” I would pass the GHIN Computer in the pro shop on the way to picking up my walkie-talkie before my shift and see players huddled around waiting to pass along their scores to the central database but seeing members entering scores that didn’t, shall we say, compute. In my jumbled head, I thought you could play any number of rounds at any number of courses, input your scores and after enough rounds played, receive a handicap. I figured that golf runs on gentlemen’s rules, and submitting results would be an honest process. There isn’t much upside in saying you are a scratch golfer and going out and shooting 20-over par. Turns out though, that the USGA wants peer review to take place at these clubs, so that everything is done by the book. All the golf clubs on the North Olympic Peninsula can issue handicap indexes as members of the Washington State Golf Association. Once a player joins a golf club, the player should post adjusted gross scores from each round. According to the USGA’s Handicap Index Manual, an “adjusted gross score” is a player’s gross score adjusted under USGA Handicap System procedures for unfinished holes, conceded strokes, holes not played or not played under the Rules of Golf, or Equitable Stroke Control. When the player posts five adjusted gross scores, and a revision date passes, the club will issue the player a Handicap Index. For more information, I would ask your club directly. They can take you through the process step-by-step in order to smooth out any difficulties. As for joining a club, I’m currently accepting offers! All joking aside, I will likely join a club this spring and I should have an index by this summer. Then I will have something to putt, drive and chip away at.

Port Townsend events Barring a massive snowfall, Port Townsend Golf Club will hold a Winter Scramble with a 10 a.m. shotgun start on Saturday. The club will hold a blind draw for partners. Cost is $30 per player. These kind of tournaments are good for newcomers to the area and to the game, who are looking to meet new playing partners. The club also will host its 20th annual St. Patrick’s Day Two-Person Best Ball Golf and Feast on Saturday, March 12. This tournament is $35 per player, and food from the course’s Hidden Rock Cafe will follow play. More details will follow on this one. Turn

First base prospect set for strong 2nd season By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

PEORIA, Ariz. — When he arrived at the stadium, Seattle’s Justin Smoak was in the moment, even when his struggles mounted and he was eventually demoted to the minor leagues. It was everything else that was going on away from trying to play first base that caused Smoak’s head to spin during a dizzying rookie season. Whether it was constantly being reminded he was the centerpiece of the trade that sent Cliff Lee from Seattle to Texas or simply trying to figure out where he was, Smoak’s rapid rise to the majors hit more than just a few speed bumps in 2010. “I learned a lot from going through what I went through

Dawgs take apart Seattle Redhawks are too small on the inside The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Matthew Bryan-Amaning had 24 points and 13 rebounds and Aziz N’Diaye scored a career-high 15 as the Washington Huskies used their size to cruise past Seattle 95-74 at KeyArena on Tuesday night. The 6-foot-9 Bryan-Amaning and 7-foot N’Diaye were too much to handle for the Redhawks. Alex Jones and Gavin Gilmore were unable to keep Washington from getting the ball into the post and struggled to rebound against the taller Huskies. Washington blew the game open right after halftime, going on a 14-3 run to break open an 37-29 halftime lead. Isaiah Thomas had 20 points, Terrence Ross scored 13 and Justin Holiday and Darnell Gant each added 10 points for Washington (19-8). Cervante Burrell’s 26 points led the way for Seattle (10-17). Sterling Carter finished with 20 points. Seattle couldn’t keep the Washington offense stifled in the second half. Bryan-Amaning scored Washington’s first four points after the break.

Washington’s Venoy Overton, left, and Darnell Gant reach for the ball held by Seattle’s Aaron Broussard during an NCAA college basketball game Tuesday night in Seattle. Holiday was fouled on a 3-point try and converted all three free throws, and N’Diaye had four points, including a dunk on a feed from Holiday to take a 48-32 lead and prompting a Seattle timeout. The stoppage didn’t kill the Huskies’ momentum as BryanAmaning twirled under the bas-

ket and slammed down a onehanded jam on a feed from Venoy Overton to put the Huskies in firm command. Washington finished with a 49-28 rebounding edge over Seattle. The Huskies took control early, exploiting the Redhawks’

lack of size inside. Bryan-Amaning and Thomas helped Washington open a 21-10 lead. Former Washington assistant and Seattle head coach Cameron Dollar took two quick timeouts to try to keep Washington from breaking the game open early.

Zags guard tops 1,000 assists By Nicholas Geranios The Associated Press

SPOKANE — Gonzaga has produced a lot of spectacular point guards over the years, from John Stockton to Dan Dickau to Blake Stepp. Courtney Vandersloot has them all beat, at least in the key category of assists. The senior recently became only the seventh player in NCAA history to dish out at least 1,000 assists in her career. Even Stockton, the NBA’s career assist leader, didn’t get that many in college Vandersloot is easily leading the nation this season with an average of 9.9 assists per game — almost three assists per game better than the second place player. She also leads the West Coast Conference with 18.5 points per game as the No. 23 Bulldogs attempt to run away with another league title and seek a third consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. Many consider Vandersloot the greatest female player in school history. “She is the best player to come through here and I am honored to be a part of that,” said Kayla Standish, who averages 16 points per game, including the layup that gave Vandersloot her 1,000th assist on Feb. 12. Vandersloot, known as CV or Sloot, is from the Seattle suburb of Kent, and held the career scoring record at Kentwood High

School when she graduated. The 5-foot-8 Vandersloot was rated one of the top point guards on the West Coast, and was sold on Gonzaga during her recruiting visit. “I fell in love with Gonzaga,” she said. The feeling was mutual. “Courtney is the heart and soul of our basketball team,” coach Kelly Graves said.

Mariners: MLB

Young starter She became a starter her freshman year, averaging 10 points and 5 assists per game and was named WCC newcomer of the year. She had 10 assists in her first college game, against Washington. She was WCC player of the year as a sophomore, averaging 16 points and was third in the nation with 7.5 assists per game. She repeated as WCC player of the year last season, averaging 14 points and leading the nation with 9.4 assists per game, as the Bulldogs advanced to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament. She’s even better this season, adding 3.2 rebounds, 2.8 steals and a dazzling array of no-look passes and drives to the basket, her pony tail bobbing as she explodes past defenders. “You never know where the pass is coming from,” Standish said. Vandersloot dropped 24 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds in a loss to No. 2 Stanford this season, and is a finalist for the Naismith and Wooden awards.

PORT ANGELES — The Klahhane gymnastics recreational team recently competed in the Bumbershoot Charity Choice Invitational and the Sweet Meet at Gymnastics East. Lillian Oden placed second on the vault and balance beam at the Bumbershoot Invitational for age 11, finishing fourth allaround. Teammate Clarissa Preston took first on vault for 12 and older, securing second place all-around. Representing ages 10 and younger, Sydney Miner placed eighth and Peyton Hefton 12th. Doing well at the Sweet Meet were Adare McMinn, who finished second on vault, bars, beam and allaround, and Clarissa Preston, who took first on vault. Emily VanDyken placed

second on bars, fourth on vault and beam, and third all-around.

Gonzaga’s Courtney Vandersloot works the ball during an NCAA second-round game against Texas A&M in Seattle last March. Gonzaga has produced outstanding point guards over the years, from John Stockton to Dan Dickau to Blake Stepp. Vandersloot has them all beat, at least in the key category of assists. She has an easy explanation for all her assists. “I’m just surrounded by so many scorers,” Vandersloot said. “It’s more enjoyable for me to make a good pass than to score,” she said. But the ability to shoot from outside, and also to penetrate, is what opens up

the defense for her assists. Stockton, who lives in Spokane, remains a key figure in Gonzaga basketball, and is well known for mentoring the guards on the men’s team. It turns out he helps the women also. “I’ve had chances to work with him,” Vandersloot said.

HOUSTON — The political turmoil sweeping the Arab world drove oil prices sharply higher and stocks much lower Tuesday despite efforts by Saudi Arabia to calm turbulent markets. The unrest that has spread from Tunisia to Libya pushed oil prices to a two-year high and has spurred an increase in gasoline prices. The specter of rising energy costs and accelerating inflation in turn unsettled investors. Oil is now at a price not seen since the recession began, and it is more than $20 above goals set in recent months by Saudi officials as strong enough to satisfy the top producers but not so strong they might suffocate the global economic recovery. In New York, crude oil for

March delivery gained $7.37, or 8.6 percent, to $93.57 a barrel, while oil for April delivery rose 6.4 percent, to $95.42 a barrel. Brent crude, a European benchmark traded in London, rose 4 cents, to $105.78. As oil went up, stock prices went down Tuesday. Falling stocks outnumbered rising ones nine to one on the New York Stock Exchange.

6-cent jump in a week Although there are still plentiful supplies of oil and gasoline in the United States and in much of the world, American consumers are now paying an average of $3.17 a gallon for regular gasoline, a steep rise of 6 cents a gallon over the last week, according to the AAA daily fuel gauge report. With consumers paying roughly 50 cents more a gal-

lon than a year ago, analysts are warning that prices could easily top $3.50 by the summer driving season. “Higher energy prices act like a tax on consumers, reducing the amount of discretionary purchasing power that they have,” said Lawrence R. Creatura, a portfolio manager at Federated Investors. “It represents an additional, potential headwind for retailers.” Saudi Arabia’s oil minister sought to reassure the markets Tuesday, saying that OPEC was ready to pump more oil to compensate for any decline. At least 50,000 barrels a day of output has already been halted in Libya. That is only a fraction of the country’s production, but with foreign oil companies beginning to shut down operations and evacuate

workers and with local ports closing, more output could be lost. “OPEC is ready to meet any shortage in supply when it happens,” the Saudi oil minister, Ali al-Naimi, said at a news conference after a meeting of ministers of oil producing and consuming nations in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. “There is concern and fear, but there is no shortage.” While Libya has been the immediate cause for the spike in oil prices recently, oil experts said traders were driving up prices because of concerns that a long period of instability in the Middle East was just beginning. They identified the protests in Bahrain in particular as a disturbing sign that neighboring Saudi Arabia might not be immune to the spreading political contagion.

Wal-Mart’s woes continue The Associated Press

As the Christmas season approached, Wal-Mart Stores said it was fixing the problems in its United States division. It hired new executives, added merchandise that it had cut and fought with Target and other competitors to provide the lowest prices over the holidays. But for Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, the fourth quarter was the seventh consecutive quarter of declining sales at stores open at least a year in the United States, a measure known as same-store sales. The decline of 1.8 percent missed the company projection. In November, it said that same-store sales for the fourth quarter would range from a decline of 1 percent

to a gain of 2 percent. Same-store sales are an important indicator of a retailer’s health, as they tend to reflect whether instore changes are working or not. Store traffic also declined in the quarter and for the year. Sales overall in the United States fell in the quarter, by 0.5 percent to $71.1 billion.

New habits Company executives and analysts said consumers seemed to have changed their ways during the recession, and that has persisted into the sluggish recovery. New shopping habits — like using less credit, relying more on month-to-month cash and buying in smaller packages — have hampered

Wal-Mart’s ability to climb out of the sales slump. In addition, while consumers are still using WalMart for big shopping trips, they are visiting drugstores and dollar stores for inbetween purchases. Wal-Mart said its prices and sizes in basics like toilet paper and soap were a problem for shoppers who continued to be on tight budgets. “It’s not a case that we’re not correctly priced,” said Charles Holley Jr., executive vice president and chief financial officer. For example, he said Wal-Mart’s price-per-ounce for laundry detergent was usually lower than competitors’, but competitors like dollar stores often sold smaller bottles or boxes that were cheaper.

“Some of our customers at the end of the month may have only a fixed amount left,” he said, “and even if it’s more per ounce, if the price point is more attractive at a competitor, at the end of the month that’s all they can spend. “That’s something we’re addressing right now.” Also, he said, “we lost some of what we call the fillin trip. People were still coming to the store to do their big shopping trip, but when they needed bread, milk, detergent quickly, we did lose some of that.” Speaking of where shoppers were going instead, he said: “I think it’s probably the convenience and somebody that has low price points, and dollar stores would certainly fit that category.”

Home prices plunge in most big U.S. cities The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Home prices are hitting new depths in most major U.S. cities and are expected to fall further over the next six months. In a majority of metro areas tracked by Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller, prices have fallen to their lowest points since the housing bubble burst. High unemployment,

stricter lending rules and fears that prices will continue to fall are among the reasons why few people are buying homes. A rising number of foreclosures are also weighing down prices. And as more people get stuck in depreciating homes, housing could slow the economy. Housing prices in all but one of the 20 cities tracked by Standard & Poor’s/Case

Shiller fell in December from November. And the overall index declined for the sixth straight month. Eleven of the markets hit their lowest point since the housing bubble burst in 2006 and 2007 — Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Detroit; Las Vegas; Miami; New York; Phoenix; Seattle; Tampa, Fla.; and Portland, Ore. The housing sector is struggling even while much

of the economy is recovering slowly but steadily. The latest evidence of the divide came Tuesday when the Conference Board said its Consumer Confidence Index rose in February to its highest point in three years. The report suggested that many people are more hopeful about hiring and income gains over the next six months.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court closed the courthouse door Tuesday to parents who want to sue drug makers over claims that their children developed autism and other serious health problems from vaccines. The ruling was a stinging defeat for families dissatisfied with how they fared before a special nofault vaccine court. The court voted 6-2 against Robalee and Russell Bruesewitz of Pittsburgh, the parents of a child who sued the drug maker Wyeth in Pennsylvania state court for the health problems they say their daughter, now 19, suffered from a vaccine she received in infancy. Justice Antonin Scalia,

writing for the court, said Congress set up a special vaccine court in 1986 to handle such claims as a way to provide compensation to injured children without driving drug manufacturers from the vaccine market. The idea, he said, was to create a system that spares the drug companies the costs of defending against parents’ lawsuits. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. Nothing in the 1986 law “remotely suggests that Congress intended such a result,” Sotomayor wrote, taking issue with Scalia. Scalia’s opinion was the latest legal setback for parents who felt they got too little from the vaccine court or failed to collect at all. The American Academy

c Our Peninsula Sequim chamber honors volunteers SECTION


By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — Jim Pickett, known for his long-standing involvement and passion for helping the community, was named the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce 2010 Citizen of the Year on Tuesday. Dick Hughes, nominated for his involvement in the Sequim Education Foundation and other youth help organizations, and Joe Borden, a longtime Irrigation Festival volunteer, were honored with Community Service Awards during the chamber’s annual awards luncheon at SunLand Golf & Country Club. The awards have been given to hard-working volunteers since 1968, and prior winners make up the selection committee. Accepting the award from 2009 recipient Tom Schaafsma, Pickett recalled that he was an award nominee in 1998. “So if you stick around long enough, it pays off,” joked Pickett, a retired educator, in his trademark Texas twang, drawing laughs from the audience of at least 75. Nell Clausen of Estes Builders, who nominated Pickett, said she met him through the Rotary Club and considered him “a friend and a mentor for the rest of my life.”

Pickett: Plays Santa Pickett has a history of volunteer work with United Way of Clallam County, has supported local schools and served on the Sequim Park Advisory Board and with Olympic Peninsula Baywatchers and Friends of the Library. The man who plays Santa at holiday breakfasts for both seniors and children in Sequim can also be found doing manual labor for volunteer projects around the city, such as helping with the maintenance of Olympic Discovery Trail.

Jim Pickett, right, accepts the 2010 Citizen of the Year award from 2009 recipient Tom Schaafsma during the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards luncheon Tuesday. As a member of the Sequim Sunrise Rotary Club, Pickett has aggressively promoted the ShelterBox program that provides temporary tent shelters and survival supplies to victims of disasters around the world. “Forty ShelterBoxes were purchased by Rotary,” Clausen said, calling it “an amazing feat.” Each box costs $1,000, and Pickett’s club has been recognized as being among Rotary’s top five fundraisers around the world for ShelterBoxes. Pickett’s involvement in Sequim goes far beyond Rotary and making kids and seniors happy as the jolly elf. Pickett moved to Sequim in 1993 after he retired as superintendent of the Galveston School District in Texas.

Hughes was nominated by Elna Kawal for his involvement in the Sequim Education Foundation, Rotary Club, Sequim Wolf Pack Youth Football, Sequim Middle School Interact Club, Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic and as a volunteer.

Hughes: A rare doer Kawal said Hughes is “one who likes to stay in the background,” instead preferring to “launch people” into volunteerism. “He’s dedicated his life to helping others,” Kawal said. “He’s one of the rare doers in the world.” Besides youth football, she said, Hughes promotes academics, reading one-on-one with schoolchildren. “Dick has been instrumental in building a future for thousands

of children,” she said. Borden was nominated by Debra Rambo Sinn for his involvement in the Irrigation Festival, the Chamber of Commerce board and various committees, the Patriotic Guard Riders, the city of Sequim Centennial Committee and other volunteer efforts.

Student’s score puts her in teacher’s spot Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Preetha Patel followed a family tradition when she was selected as the teacher for a day in her Franklin Elementary School third-grade class last week. Her mother, Minaxi Patel, was selected as the teacher for a day when she was a fourth-grader in India. Preetha won the honor to preside over her class on Valentine’s Day by winning a geography map game. Teacher Cynthia Green was searching for an educational website to help improve her students’ geography skills and discovered an interactive site called www. “There was a world map game that randomly showed 21 different countries and kept time on how long it takes you to drag them onto the world map and place them in their correct spot,” Green said. “I got hooked on it and played it many times trying to beat my best score. My best score was 93 seconds. “As a whim, I posted a challenge to my students on my blog and announced in class that the first student who correctly placed

the 21 countries on the map and said the name of each country in 100 seconds or less could take over the class and be the teacher for one day,” Green said. Her blog can be found at www. room5franklinschool.blogspot. com. “Within two weeks, Preetha could do this in less than 100 seconds,” Green said. “On the day she challenged me, her time was 75 seconds. Her best score to date is 59 seconds!” Preetha taught the class Feb. 14 and instructed students in math, research reports and handwriting. “[She] took her job very seriously,” Green said. “She had us write research reports, complete a math page and work on handwriting; however, the handwriting was of her parents’ native language, Gugarati. “At the end of the day, she managed a class Valentine’s party with cupcake decorating, games and distributing valentines — all without chaos. She’s quite a kid.” Green said the practice of having a student teach a class is a Port Angeles School District regular occurrence in India; a student who is academically Preetha Patel leads her third-grade class through Valentine Bingo.

Our son is now Back in the Game 2 years old, and “Tom” still sneaks in Arizona out to smoke, and I am sure he does at work, too. Dear Back in the Game: The His mother passed a year ago subject of where you have been for from cancer — she was a longtime the past 25 years is bound to come up early in a relationship — or even smoker, and his father has now been diagnosed with cancer.

For Better or For Worse


Dear Abby: I’m a certified massage therapist who attended a reputable massage therapy school. I worked hard for my certification because my goal is to relieve people of chronic pain issues. When I’m asked what I do for a living, men start making jokes that imply I’m the type of masseuse who massages naked men for their sexual pleasure. I find this more than a little insulting. They think they’re being funny, but I don’t. How can I discourage these innuendos? Should I ignore them and hope they get the point from the expression on my face? Offended Therapist in Michigan

Frank & Ernest


Dear Offended: When someone makes an offensive comment, I see nothing wrong in letting that person know he has “rubbed” you the wrong way. Tell him you studied hard to be in a healing profession — that the innuendo is insulting and not funny, and you’re not “that kind” of girl. Period.


Dear Kelly: You’re right to be worried, and you have my sympathy. Smoking cessation programs are available through the American Cancer Society but work only if the smoker is willing to avail himself. Nothing you can do will “make” your husband give up tobacco. He has been nicotine-saturated from birth. Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in the U.S. If the fact that both his parents were diagnosed with cancer — probably from smoking — hasn’t convinced him to stop, frankly, nothing will. You can protect your son by insisting that Tom not smoke in the boy’s presence — and when he’s old enough that he understands his father has an addiction and cannot stop as a warning not to start. Then pray the “family tradition” isn’t passed down yet again.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may need to incorporate damage control into your discussions with both personal and professional friends. There is no need to cause upset or to overreact. A calm approach will help you find solutions so you can pick up where you left off. 3 stars

Rose is Rose

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A partnership will improve if you have a heartto-heart talk. You will learn a valuable lesson if you offer your services or help to a charitable organization. Make a promise to treat with pride even the smallest job you are asked to do. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Concentrate more on work and less on your personal problems. You will sort out any personal problems you face if you distance yourself from the situation, so you can clearly see who’s at fault. 3 stars


CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have plenty of opportunity to learn, make new friends or pick up additional skills. Don’t sit around waiting for others to motivate you. Make the first move and you’ll show everyone that you are a self-starter. 5 stars

Dennis the Menace



LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You must do the math before you decide to make a big ticket purchase or sign up for something costly and not likely to bring the results you expect. Your best opportunity will come from what you can learn and apply to your everyday life and your professional future. 2 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You need to get out more and to make some new friends or at least nurture the relationships that are important to you. Socializing will enhance your love life and show that you are willing to participate and contribute. Your frugalness will be appreciated. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on your ideas and creative plans for the future. Getting together with people who inspire you will bring positive results. Be careful not to upset someone who depends on you or you will face uncertainty, leading to more worry, stress and responsibility. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Love is on the rise and participating in trips, events or home improvements that help you bring about change should be your intent. Your energy and creative insight will help you close a gap that has slowly been growing between you and someone you care about. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your thoughts to yourself and your mind on how you can help others. It’s what you give that will spare your being criticized. Arguments are apparent with friends, relatives and neighbors if you are pushy or disrespectful or you exaggerate. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Professional advancement can be yours if you put in the extra effort and share with superiors your suggestions to improve efficiency. Bring the past into the future by sharing your experience. Love is in the stars. 4 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Reconsider what’s being offered or taking on a responsibility that someone asks you to deal with. Emotional matters will escalate if you refuse to pitch in and help a good cause. Action is required. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Now is your chance to pursue something you’ve wanted for a long time. Pull in favors and show your dedication. Set up meetings and contracts and deals can be written up and signed. It’s up to you to make things happen. 5 stars

The sale may be terminated any time after the 21st day of February, 2011 (11 days before the sale date), and before the sale by the Borrower, the Grantor or the Grantor's successor in interest, any guarantor, or the holder of any recorded junior lien or encumbrance paying the entire principal and interest secured by the Deed of Trust, plus costs, fees, and advances, if any, made pursuant to the terms of the obligation and/or Deed of Trust, and curing all other defaults. VI. A written Notice of Default was transmitted by the Beneficiary or Trustee to the Borrower and Grantor or the Grantor's successor in interest at the following address: Marshall Earl Raney, 1028 Tyler Street, Port Townsend, WA 98368; George Raney and Rae Anne Raney, 310 Cosgrove Street, Port Townsend, WA 98368, by both first class and certified mail on the 15th day of October, 2010, proof of which is in the possession of the Trustee. A written Notice of Default was also posted in a conspicuous place on the premises located at 1028 Tyler Street, Port Townsend, Washington, on the 18th day of October, 2010, and the Trustee has possession of proof of such posting. VII. The Trustee whose name and address are set forth below will provide in writing to anyone requesting it, a statement of all costs and fees due at any time prior to the sale. VIII. The effect of the sale will be to deprive the Grantor and all those who hold by, through or under the Grantor of all their interest in the above described property. IX. Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the sale pursuant to RCW 61.24.130. Failure to bring such a lawsuit may result in a waiver of any proper grounds for invalidating the Trustee's sale. X. NOTICE TO OCCUPANTS OR TENANTS. The purchaser at the Trustee's Sale is entitled to possession of the property on the 20th day following the sale, as against the Grantor under the Deed of Trust (the owner) and anyone having an interest junior to the Deed of Trust, including occupants other than tenants. After the 20th day following the sale the purchaser has the right to evict occupants other than tenants by summary proceedings under the Unlawful Detainer Act, Chapter 59.12 RCW. Pursuant to the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act of 2009, a tenant or subtenant in possession of the property that is purchased at the trustee’s sale, under any bona fide lease entered into before the notice of foreclosure, has the right to occupy the property until the end of the remaining term of the lease, except that the purchaser (or a successor in interest) who will occupy the property as a primary residence may terminate the lease by giving written notice to the tenant at least ninety (90) days before the effective date of such notice. The purchaser (or a successor in interest) may give a written notice to a tenant to vacate the property at least ninety (90) days before the effective date of such notice to a bona fide month-to-month tenant or subtenant in possession of the property, or a tenant or subtenant in possession of the property without a bona fide lease. A lease or tenancy shall be considered bona fide only if: (1) the tenant is not the mortgagor/grantor or the child, spouse, or parent of the mortgagor/grantor under the foreclosed contract/Deed of Trust; (2) the lease or tenancy was the result of an armslength transaction; and (3) the lease or tenancy requires the receipt of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property or the rent is reduced or subsidized due to a Federal, State, or local subsidy.

Englanders use pastry, but underneath them all is a wonderfully old-fashioned filling. A good chicken pot pie is not complicated, but it takes time. For cooks in a hurry, there are shortcuts. Canned broth can be substituted for homemade stock, leftover or storebought cooked chicken can be used instead of a startfrom-scratch uncooked bird, and frozen peas can be added without thawing. You can even skip the pastry and serve the filling over noodles or rice or even a piece of toast. It will taste fine, but it won’t be chicken pot pie.

Chicken Pot Pie Serves 8

Chicken Pot Pie.

4 tablespoons butter 1⁄2 cup diced onion 1⁄2 cup diced celery 1 (8-ounce) package sliced mushrooms (about 3 cups) 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour 1 (141⁄2-ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth 11⁄4 cups 2 percent reduced-fat milk 1⁄3 cup chopped fresh parsley 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme 1⁄2 teaspoon salt 1⁄4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1 cup frozen peas 3 cups (1 pound) chopped, cooked

chicken 1⁄2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough 1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 tablespoon water

________ Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and mushrooms; saute 6 minutes. Sprinkle with flour; cook and stir 1 minute. Add broth and milk; increase heat, cook, stirring often, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and sim-

mer 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, peas and chicken. Spoon into 13-inch-by9-inch baking dish or shallow 3-quart casserole dish. On a lightly floured surface, roll pie dough to about 1-inch larger than baking dish. Place on top of filling; fold edges under to make a hem and press down with fork. Cut vents on top and brush with egg yolk mixture. Bake 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Soul-satisfying comfort in dumpling bowl By Damon Lee Fowler Relish


Dumpling lovers are divided into two camps: those who like and know them biscuit-like (fat, round and fluffy as a down pillow) and those who favor them flat, noodle-like and firm to the bite. The dumplings in this recipe, which are known to Southerners, are the latter. The dough for both kinds is pretty much the same — it’s really just a basic biscuit

dough. The difference lies in the way that dough is handled. For biscuit-like dumplings, the dough needs a correspondingly lighter treatment, only about 10 to 15 of the folds described in the recipe until it is just smooth. It’s then rolled out a little thicker than 1⁄8-inch, cut into 1-inch pieces, and allowed to sit for a minute or two until the dumplings begin to rise. They’re then gently stirred into the broth a few at a time.

For the sleek, flat, noodlelike dumplings that many Southerners crave, and sometimes inelegantly but descriptively refer to as “slipperies,” the dough will need at least 15 to 20 folds. It’s then rolled as thin as pie crust, cut into small pieces and cooked at once. It’s a delicate balancing act: if the dough is overworked, the dumplings will be dense and chewy; if it’s not worked enough, they’ll be insubstantial and won’t hold together.

Chicken and Dumplings Serves 8 For chicken and broth: 5 pounds chicken pieces 1 large yellow onion, peeled and coarsely chopped 2 large ribs celery, coarsely chopped 2 medium carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped 1 teaspoon whole peppercorns 3 quarter-sized slices fresh ginger 1 large sprig each parsley, sage and thyme 2 bay leaves 2 quarts water or chicken broth For finishing broth: 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 large yellow onion, peeled and chopped 1 large garlic clove, minced 3 tablespoons chopped parsley, divided 1 tablespoon each chopped fresh sage and thyme 1⁄2 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper For dumplings: 2 cups all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening 1 cup buttermilk

________ To prepare the chicken and

broth, place all ingredients in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Bring almost to a boil, reduce heat, cover partially and simmer until chicken is tender, about 2 hours. Let chicken cool in broth; remove and strain broth, discarding solids. Return broth to pot and bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, until it is reduced by one-quarter. Meanwhile, skin and bone chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces. Skim excess fat from broth and cool. Cover and refrigerate chicken and broth until ready to use. You can prepare chicken and broth up to 2 days ahead. Skim solidified fat from top of broth before using. To finish the broth, melt butter in Dutch oven. Add onion and saute over medium-high heat until it begins to color, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon parsley along with sage, thyme and broth. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium. To make the dumplings, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a

mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in center, pour in buttermilk and quickly stir until dry ingredients are all incorporated. Lightly flour a smooth work surface and turn dough out onto it. With lightly floured hands, gently push dough away from you to flatten it. Fold it in half, gently pat it out ½-inch thick, and give it a quarter turn. Repeat folding and patting until dough is smooth and cohesive, 15 to 20 times. Divide it into 3 equal pieces. Lightly flour and roll one piece to the thickness of pie crust, about 1⁄8-inch. Quickly cut into 1-inch wide strips, 2 inches long. Drop dumplings into broth; repeat with remaining dough pieces. Simmer 5 minutes. Add chicken and simmer 2 to 3 minutes more, until dumplings are cooked through and firm but tender. Taste and adjust seasonings. Ladle into a large bowl or individual soup plates and sprinkle with the remaining parsley.

Blankets keep horses warm, healthy HOW’S THE WEATHER in your neck of the woods? As I write this, my property has a sprinkling of snow accompanied by a bone-chillingly cold wind. If you live in a damp, cold area that doesn’t see light of day, put a blanket on and/or provide shelter for your horse — and by all means dump a load of crushed gravel on the ground so the horse has a clump of dry ground to stand on. Some horses living outdoors at night are happy in all but the bitterest temperatures, while others shiver on the first cold night of fall. Those living in regions with more cold and rain — like the West End — might want to keep a blanket on their horses all winter. Here in Sequim, I usually don’t put a blanket on until the temperature drops below freezing, mainly because I like their winter coats to grow in thick. A thick, healthy winter coat serves as insulation — unless it’s matted down and frozen. In that case, a healthy horse will usually run around — but not always — to generate enough body heat to keep warm.

Senior citizen Our Welsh pony, Goldie Boy, is one such exception. At 30, he’s a senior citizen with a lower tolerance for the cold. He started getting blanketed at night as soon as temperatures start dropping into the 40s, and now it’s on 24/7. Since his teeth are worn down to the nubs, he lives in the backyard, with my

PENINSULA HORSEPLAY dogs, where can take Griffiths he his time eating his watersoaked cubes without worry of competition from the other horses. Traditionally, our Shetland pony, Snowball Express, has hated a blanket no matter what the weather. However, now that he’s in his late teens, he seems to like it when the temperature drops below 32 degrees. If I don’t take the blanket off in the morning, he tries to rub and squirm it off — usually in the muddiest part of the pasture. For him, I like a waterproofed canvas blanket with wool lining. It’s more tear-resistant, and the durability is good because he tends to brush up against the thorny berry bushes in the pasture. Its lining stays warm when wet. The downside is canvas blankets usually sit lower on the neck and don’t seem to fit as well as others. By the way, during early winter, all horses love to eat the leaves off berry bushes. Let them — they’re full of antioxidants.

Older and thin-skinned horses usually need to wear a blanket to keep warm. From left, Lacey, Indy and Snowball Express appreciate their winter coats when temperatures drop below freezing.

I’ve always bought for them is now cut higher on the sides and doesn’t quite cover their rear ends. However, they can move around easily without rubbing, and the belly and leg straps are made of stretchy material. I can tell the horses really like them because they stand quietly — no halter needed — when I put them on. Periodically, I also remove the blankets to New blankets brush their coats and perQuarter horses Lacey form a routine inspection of and Indy are wearing new the blankets. blankets this year.

ing a blanket too quickly if the horse is still wet with perspiration; otherwise, the next blanket will absorb the moisture and won’t protect the horse from the cold. Bottom line: If your horse is shivering, blanket him and get him to a shelter. To see if your horse is too warm wearing a blanket, simply slide your hand under his blanket: If he’s sweaty, he needs a lighter covering or none at all.

Boot camp comes to middle school ON MONDAY, THEY did yoga. On Wednesday, aerobic movement to music. But when students at Blue Heron Middle School came to physical education class Thursday, they were faced with a harsh reality. Boot camp. The drill instructors: Teresa Hoffmann, owner of the Port Townsend Athletic Club, and her oldest son, Stevie Weaver, 20. Working with half of the students in each grade at a time, they put the new recruits through an hour of strenuous exercises, oldschool style. “We want to start a movement to take P.E. back to when there were a lot more calisthenics,” Hoffmann said. “Gyms are very different today than 50 to 100 years ago. There are no ropes, no rings, no climbing, because of safety. “But we’re also losing out,” Hoffmann said. Tom Kent, the school’s athletic director and P.E. teacher, started talking to Hoffmann and Weaver about bringing a version of their adult exercise class, called boot camp training, to the school. He and coach Scott Ricardo participated along with the students in the first three morning sessions in the school gym last Thursday. “I worked up a real sweat from the first sessions,” Kent told the group of seventh-graders coming in for their turn. Calisthenics are simple exercises that require no equipment — just open space and the natural resistance of body weight. To start off, Hoffmann led stretches and warm-up exercises involving running and jumping in place. Then Weaver took over, asking each student to pair up with another. A Port Townsend High School graduate, Weaver has a blue belt in Brazilian jiujitsu, is a certified Russian kettle bell instructor and has the biceps to prove it.

How it’s done



native. Doing sets of calisthenic exercises has mental benefits as well as physical ones. “The brain loves pattern,” Hoffmann said.

Students’ reactions For students who are into sports, last week’s boot camp was not too much of a shock. Tristin Minnihan, 12, who competes in swimming and wrestling, said he had done similar exercises at a Seattle University sports camp. Stevie Riepe, 13, said he had done a lot of the same drills in martial arts classes. Students who hadn’t done this type of exercise before said they liked it better than easier activities. “What’s the point of physical education if you’re not going to exercise your body?” said Amber Conceicao, 13. Hoffmann and Weaver volunteered their time at the school to lead boot camp, which they held Thursday and Friday morning, and are taking it to the high school this week. They challenge the students to give each exercise their best shot but offer alternative versions and stress safety. Calisthenics is also the basis of the Rhody Run Boot Camp, which Hoffmann held last year for the first time. For people who walk for exercise, calisthenics takes exercise to a whole different level, Hoffmann said, but the result is an increase in flexibility, stamina and strength. “It’s important for running if you work on the core muscles,” Hoffmann said. “It’s sports conditioning. It works.”

12K training Blue Heron students also train for the Rhody Run, a 12K held at the end of the Rhododendron Festival. Last year, the school had 150 kids and staff in the event, Kent said. “It’s a big deal,” Kent said. “They come to school the next day in their T-shirts, and we take pictures.” Throughout the year, students also can earn points toward their P.E. grade by doing activities outside of class. They include running, jogging, biking or swimming five miles in a week; swearing off junk food for five consecutive school days; eating a healthy breakfast and healthy lunch for five days; attending an athletic event and talking to the teacher about it; or teaching a family member five exercises learned in P.E. class. Kent measures each student’s height and tests physical skills at the beginning, middle and end of the school year so that progress can be recognized. Students also can earn “Fit for Life” T-shirts by completing the Presidential Fitness Challenge, with the Port Townsend Athletic Club sponsoring the shirts this year, Kent said. A chart on the wall displays the names and times of students who have excelled in the seven challenges: sit-ups or curls,

Teresa Hoffmann leads seventh-graders in warm-up exercises in the gym at Blue Heron Middle School on Thursday morning. shuttle run, sit and reach, mile run, pull-ups, vertical jump reach and a pacer run, in which students run back and forth, changing directions at the sound of a tone. “In the last four weeks, we had four set new records,” Kent said. “Kids know the records, and they want to break them.” As dean of students at the school, he also promotes character-building exercises. One that everyone in the school is encouraged to perform on a regular basis: doing a good deed for someone you don’t know well. Kent also starts each P.E. class asking students what the word for the week is. Last week, it was selfcontrol. While they do stretches, he talks about the meaning of the word and applying it in daily life. Each P.E. class ends with cool-down exercises. Then Kent tells the students to look left, look right, then come back to the center. “It’s important to always have that balance in life,” Kent said.

Rhody Run preparation To prepare for this year’s 12K Rhody Run, Hoffmann and Weaver are holding the second annual Rhody Run Boot Camp starting April 11. The class will meet Seventh-graders at Blue Heron Middle School do pushups Thursday Mondays, Wednesdays and during a physical education class featuring calisthenics and other “boot Fridays from 6 a.m. to camp” exercises. 7 a.m. for six weeks at Mountain View Commons, 1919 Blaine St., Port Townsend.

Demonstrating the way to do a pushup, he started out with the hardest version, on hands and toes with the body off the floor, then showed the students how to do modified versions. While one student in each pair did pushups, the other did a less strenuous exercise. Then they switched, repeating each set several times. Weaver also demonstrated the power version of a lunge, both arms straight up in the air while jumping up and alternating the forward leg. “That’s how you do it if you want to be strong like a bull — or just have nicer legs,” Hoffmann said as students gave it a try. For middle school students, the biggest challenge is coordinating the movements, Hoffmann said. The second biggest challenge: using the proper technique so that each exercise is done safely and effectively. “The best type of physical education for children is good old-fashioned movement,” Hoffmann said. “It should start early. Being coordinated and safe — it’s a lifelong skill.” Weaver also demonstrated a squat jump that, when done fast, resembled break dancing. Kelly Lillian, 13, managed to execute the move in good form, while Mikaila Gibson, 12, who had a broken wrist, did crunches with Hoffmann as an alter-
