$100,000 bail set in vehicular homicide case

An ‘eternal


By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A Clallam County Superior Court judge set $100,000 bail Monday for the woman investigated for drunken driving when the pickup truck she was driving crashed into another near Joyce on Sunday morning, killing a Port Angeles nurse. Amber D. Steim, 24, of Port Angeles will be charged Wednesday in Clallam County Superior Court. She is being held in Clallam County jail on investigation of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol. Steim was convicted of first-degree negligent driving in January. She also struck a pedestrian while driving at night in Port Angeles in 2007 but was never charged with a crime in that incident, after which the pedestrian died. State Patrol troopers said Steim, a restaurant waitress, was driving westbound in a 2005 Toyota pickup truck at 7:54 a.m. Sunday when it crossed the centerline and struck a 1994 Chevrolet S-10 pickup driven by Ellen J. DeBondt, 44, on state Highway 112 at Oxenford Road between Port Angeles and Joyce.

Sheen focused many of his attacks on Lorre, and in the end the studio “went with the hit-maker,” said media industry analyst Shari Anne Brill. In a series of interviews, including with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and NBC’s “Today” show, Sheen boasted about his “epic” partying, said he’s fueled by “violent hatred” of his bosses and claimed to have kicked drugs at home in his “Sober Valley Lodge.” He glorified himself as a “rock star from Mars” with “fire breathing fists” and “Adonis DNA” and talked about his home life with two women he nicknamed his “goddesses.” While Sheen’s text to AP suggested his next major role could be that of plaintiff in a lawsuit, the immediate question for Warner and CBS was whether to keep the show alive by bringing in a new cast member to join Cryer and Jones — the one-and-a-half men left. “They didn’t say the show was canceled. They said he was canceled,” said analyst Brill. “So the door is still open for another season.”

RAS LANOUF, Libya — Repeated airstrikes by Libyan warplanes Monday illustrated the edge Moammar Gadhafi holds in his fight against rebel forces marching toward the capital: He controls the air. After pleading from the uprising’s leaders, Britain and France began drafting a U.N. resolution for a no-fly zone in Libya that could balance the scales. President Barack Obama warned that the U.S. and its NATO allies are still considering military options to stop what he called “unacceptable” violence by Gadhafi’s regime. NATO decided to boost flights of AWACs surveillance planes over Libya from 10 to 24 hours a day, the U.S. Ambassador to NATO Ivo Daalder said. “I want to send a very clear message to those who are around Colonel Gadhafi. “It is their choice to make how they operate moving forward. And they will be held accountable for whatever violence continues to take place,” Obama said during remarks in the Oval Office on Monday.

Obama orders restart of Guantanamo trials Alleged mastermind of 2000 USS Cole bombing likely first By Erica Werner and Lolita C. Baldor The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama reversed course Monday and ordered a resumption of military trials for terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, making his once ironclad promise to close the isolated prison look even more distant. Guantanamo has been a major political and national security headache for the president since he took office promising to close the prison within a year, a deadline that came and went without him ever setting a new one. Obama made the change with clear reluctance, bowing to the reality that Congress’ vehement opposition to trying detainees on U.S. soil leaves them nowhere else to go. The president emphasized his preference for trials in federal civilian courts, and his administration blamed congressional

meddling for closing off that avenue. “I strongly believe that the American system of justice is a key part of our arsenal in the war against al-Qaida and its affiliates, and we will continue to draw on all aspects of our justice system — including [federal] courts — to ensure that our security and our values are strengthened,” Obama said in a statement. “Going forward, all branches of government have a responsibility to come together to forge a strong and durable approach to defend our nation and the values that define who we are as a nation.”

USS Cole bombing The first Guantanamo trial likely to proceed under Obama’s new order would involve Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged mastermind of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole. Al-Nashiri, a Saudi of Yemeni descent, has been imprisoned at

Guantanamo since 2006. Defense officials have said that of around 170 detainees at Guantanamo, about 80 are expected to face trial by military commission. On Monday, the White House reiterated that the administration remains committed to eventually closing Guantanamo — which is on a U.S. Navy base — and that Monday’s actions were in pursuit of that goal. But the outcome Obama wants seemed even more distant. Critics of the military commission system, which was established specifically to deal with the detainees at Guantanamo, contend that suspects are not given some of the most basic protections afforded people prosecuted in American courts and that serves as a recruitment tool for terrorists. Obama’s administration has enacted some changes to the military commission system while aiming to close down Guantanamo. More than two dozen detainees have been charged there, but the charges against a number of them were dismissed in the wake of Obama’s order in January 2009 to halt the commission process.

Scientists skeptical of meteorite alien life claim By Seth Borenstein The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The gaps and stringy fibers in these space rocks sure look like bacteria, and a NASA researcher has caused a stir with claims that they’re fossils of alien life. But as NASA found 15 years ago, looks can be deceiving. Top scientists in different disciplines immediately found pitfalls in a newly published examination of three meteorites that went viral on the Internet over the weekend. NASA and its top scientists disavowed the work by noon Monday. Biologists said just because it looks as though the holes were made by bacteria doesn’t make them fossils of extraterrestrial

Quick Read

microbes. The meteorites could be riddled with Earthly contamination. And both astronomers and biologists complained that the study was not truly reviewed by peers. There are questions about the credentials of the study’s author, Richard Hoover.

‘Not a lot of science’ And the work appeared in an online journal that raises eyebrows because even its editor acknowledges it may have to shut down in June and that one reason for publishing the controversial claim was to help find a buyer. “There’s a lot of stuff there, but not a lot of science,” said Rosie Redfield, a microbiologist at the

University of British Columbia, who publicly dissected the paper over the weekend. “I looked at it and shuddered.” The Associated Press talked to a dozen scientists, and none of them agreed with the findings. There was none of the excitement that surrounded a similar claim that NASA announced with fanfare in 1996 — but was forced to back away from later — that a meteorite from Mars found in Antarctica showed evidence of alien life. “There has been no one in the scientific community, certainly no one in the meteorite analysis community, that has supported these conclusions,” NASA Astrobiology Institute Director Carl Pilcher said Monday of the latest work.

GLOWING, RED-ORANGE LAVA is shooting into the sky, creating fiery rivers from the newest vent at Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island. A new fissure cracked open Saturday and continued erupting Monday, creating a powerful, spectacular and destructive show by Mother Nature at one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Propelled by jets of gas, lava was seen reaching as high as 100 feet high Sunday. “Fissure eruptions by their nature are exciting because you see lava spattering from this ground crack reaching impressive heights,” volcanologist Janet Babb said.

AN OREGON GAS station worker escaped serious injury when a car came crashing through a wall and into the cashier stand. The unidentified worker was sweeping the floor inside the station in Springfield when an entire wall suddenly came down on top of him early Saturday. The manager of the AM PM Mini Market, Casey Wilson, told KEZI-TV that the worker could have been seriously hurt if the car had moved just another foot. The worker was treated at a hospital and released. In a video of the crash, the worker climbs out of all the debris and hurdles over the counter to get to safety.

A MAN IN eastern Kentucky charged with stealing an ambulance said he just needed a ride home. A Perry County ambulance crew was inside a hospital for a few minutes Friday and left the keys in the ignition. WYMT-TV reported that when they came out, the vehicle was gone. City Police Sgt. Randy Napier said an off-duty Kentucky State Police detective saw the ambulance being driven erratically and pulled it over. Napier said 26-year-old Shane Hale told the detective he only needed a ride home and was going to call the ambulance service the next day and report where the vehicle was. Hale was jailed on DUI and other charges.

POLICE HAVE CHARGED an 83-year-old greeter at a North Carolina Walmart with trying to rob the store over the weekend. Police said George Plane Jr. of Mooresville was working Sunday night when he went to his car, donned a disguise and walked back inside the Statesville store with a gun. Statesville Police Chief Tom Anderson said Plane put the gun to a fellow employee’s head and demanded money from a cash register. Anderson said Plane fired a shot in the air after leaving with the money Plane was arrested Sunday. He was being held Monday on multiple charges, including robbery with a weapon.

Briefly: State Vandals damage cemetery VANCOUVER, Wash. — Vandals knocked over 44 headstones, damaged a street lamp and stole a new American flag at the Old City Cemetery, Vancouver, Wash., officials said. Public Works Director Brian Carlson estimates damage from last weekend’s mayhem at $8,000.

One grave marker was broken; a neighbor recovered the flag. The Columbian newspaper reported that the Old City Cemetery is one of the oldest in Washington and is the burial site of many of Vancouver’s pioneer families.

Missing student SEATTLE — The family of a University of Washington student who hasn’t been seen since Saturday said it’s out of character for her to disappear without

telling anyone. The family of 18-yearold Marizela Perez said she was last seen leaving home to go to the UW campus in Seattle. Police spokesman Mark Jameson said there’s nothing so far in the disappearance to indicate a crime.

Airport wreck ABERDEEN — A driver went through cyclone fencing at the Ocean Shores airport early Saturday then drove through the

fence again. Responding police found debris at the scene that led them to a 34-year-old Ocean Shores man, who was arrested. KXRO and KBKW reported he admitted he had been drinking. Damage to the fence was estimated at $3,000.

Beach search TACOMA — A fisherman led Tacoma police Monday to a remote beach at Point Defiance Park

where he had found two human bones. The man told The News Tribune he suspected the bones were human when he found them Feb. 20 in a shredded sleeping bag. He put them in his tackle box and later called police, who picked them up. The Pierce County medical examiner’s office confirmed they are human.

with the Port Angeles Police Department.) The physical control charge was reduced to firstdegree negligent driving, and Steim was found guilty Jan. 25.

Crosswalk incident While driving an Acura Integra in September 2007, Steim struck a pedestrian, Irene Harris, at the intersection of Front and Albert streets in Port Angeles. Harris, 44, died from her injuries the next day at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Steim was never charged with a crime in that incident. Police at the time said Harris was wearing dark clothing and walked into the crosswalk without looking up.

Steim made her court appearance Monday wearing a green shirt and shackles. She listened as lawyers made their arguments over the bail. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg said he requested the $100,000 bail based on Steim’s prior history. “She has a charge of physical control from November of 2010, which was later reduced to negligent driving in the first degree, but alcohol driving in the very near past,” Troberg told Judge George L. Wood. “So that’s very concerning.” Troberg also cited a firstdegree negligent driving case from 2005. “Looking at this case, it appeared that Ms. Steim, frankly, was driving while intoxicated and simply

crossed the centerline and hit the other vehicle head on,” Troberg said. Troberg noted that Steim refused the field sobriety test but “made some admissions about drinking.” Defense attorney Karen Unger, who may defend Steim as the case develops, countered that Steim has one prior alcohol-related driving conviction and was never charged in the pedestrian accident.

‘Completely cleared’

she was completely cleared. “That had nothing to do with alcohol, drugs, nothing. In fact, I believe there were letters written to her from the victim’s family to let her know that it wasn’t her fault.” Unger said Sunday’s wreck was “certainly tragic enough” as she argued for a lesser bail. “I’m not trying to in any way minimize the seriousness of this,” Unger said. “We don’t know what happened.” Vehicular homicide is a Class A felony that carries a maximum punishment of life in prison and $50,000 fine.

Indian Island gives Jefferson boost Commanding officer touts benefits of base By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Navy ordnance depot on Indian Island provides Jefferson County with both transitory and permanent economic benefits, the base skipper told the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce on Monday. Cmdr. Gary Martin said the “small” operation at Naval Magazine Indian Island purchased about $8.5 million in goods and services from local sources between Oct. 1, 2007, and Sept. 30, 2008. The greatest single share of this, $3.5 million, went to Port Townsendbased Intellicheck Mobilisa, while several other local companies entered into contracts with the Navy. These figures have increased in the last three years and cannot be accurately calculated, according to Martin, because much of the economic impact is indirect. Martin — a 20-year

Navyman who took over as commanding officer last October after serving nine months as skipper of the Naval Weapons Station in Charleston, S.C. — said 430 military retirees live in Jefferson County and have bought homes and spend money in the county. Every year, seven ships stop off at Indian Island for extended periods, each with between 105 and 165 crew members who spend their liberty periods in Port Townsend or Port Hadlock. “The county gets an economic benefit from these visitors since they eat in our restaurants and shop in our stores,” Martin said. “And you never know who they are because they are not in uniform.” Martin said the Pacific Northwest’s reliance on the ocean has a historical basis, due to its proximity to the sea and connection to shipping lanes. As the world becomes more connected, the local economy is affected by

Lawn mower races stir up a lot of dust in July 2010, making it necessary to water down the track every few races.

Hadlock Days’ lawn mower races shift into higher gear By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT HADLOCK — The lawn mower races, which have become the main attraction of July’s Hadlock Days, are shifting into a higher gear. “This year is going to be huge,” said Lloyd Crouse, a volunteer who manages the event on the hard-packed gravel track at D Street and Ness’ Corner Road. “We will draw a lot of people, and it will be a really big deal.” The race, which has been operating for six years, went national in 2009, becoming part of the American Racing Mower Association circuit. This year, ARMA has elevated the status of the Hadlock event to “point” status, making it part of a nationwide series of races that lead up to a national championship race. The Hadlock Days races will be held July 9-10 on a 560-foot track that Crouse built and which he is now renovating in anticipation of the pumped-up event. He is grading the land along the sides of the natural amphitheater to make room for grandstands to be built around the perimeter. He also is carving out space for media vans, saying that Seattle’s KOMOTV is certain to attend and ESPN is a possibility. While about 2,500 people attended last year’s races, Crouse expects that number

will at least double because of the increased number of racers and the national attention that brings. ARMA’s increased participation includes a semitruck holding 100 spiffy racing mowers that are capable of traveling at 90 mph, although the Port Hadlock track can probably handle those only moving at half that speed. Crouse heads a volunteer team that has built the track and managed the event with no subsidies, although he plans to sell advertising in order to defray some of the expenses. “This isn’t a money-making venture,” he said. “We only hope to make enough money to keep it going next year.” Even if the event won’t make much of a profit, Crouse feels that it will provide a boost to the area and fill up local hotels and restaurants for the weekend, even though many of the attendees will camp on site and cook their own food. Crouse, who has been racing for six years, said the sport is easy to learn, highly addicting and not very expensive. “The most expensive lawn mower you can find is around $1,500, but you can find a used one for much less,” Crouse said. Aside from the cost of the mower, which is modest by race car standards, racers must pay about $100 in dues and fees to qualify. ARMA claims to be the

fastest growing national racing organization in the United States, with more than 700 members in 35 local chapters. Women are encouraged to race, either in the regular event or their own division.

Racers tend to be older Crouse said that lawn mower racing isn’t a young person’s game. The average racer age is 45, with several are much older. “I’m 69 years old, and I have a couple of mowers that are older than I am,” he said, Crouse said there are two types of lawn mower races: NASCAR style, in which the racer starts while sitting on the mower, and Le Mans style, in which racers are required to run to their mower.

While living in Port Angeles, Betty Northup (later Betty Brooks) hosted a weekly radio show on KONP-AM during which she played organ music on her Hammond from her Oak Street living room. Every show began and ended with Betty playing Debussy’s “Clair De Lune,” her theme. On Saturday, February 12, 2011, her mother’s birthday, Betty, 89, passed away reluctantly at Richmond Beach Rehabilitation Center in Seattle while the sounds of “Clair De Lune” played on the Arts Channel, fittingly performed by a female organist on a Parisian pipe organ. A professional organist, Betty died one week after suffering a massive stroke in her apartment at the home of her daughter. Born Betty May Harris in Bremerton on December 20, 1921, Betty was raised in Port Angeles. Her father, Orville, ran a sheet-metal shop on Front Street. Her mother, Rhea Meister Harris, was a God-fearing homemaker and Sunday school teacher (and administrator) who loved baseball and Hitchcock movies. Betty attended Port Angeles High School, graduating in 1939. She lived in Port Angeles until 1962, when the family moved to Magnolia in Seattle. She took organ lessons in Victoria, riding the ferry to and fro. She was the wife of the late Jonathan Perry Brooks (1922-2007), of the late Eugene M. Nye (1920-1977), and of the late George Lester Northup (1917-1996). Lester was a furnace

Mrs. Brooks repairman, a logger and, later, ran Northup Boat Repair in San Pedro, California. Betty was the sister of the late John Raymond Harris (1919-1993). A professional organist throughout her life, Betty studied the pipe organ, taught private lessons, played for church and played for funerals. Upon her move to Seattle, she became organist at First United Methodist Church in downtown and later was the organist of the First Church of Christ Scientist on Capitol Hill. She was also a member and organist at the Bothell Church of Christ Scientist for many years. At the time of her death, she was a member of the United Methodist Church University Temple. Betty was proud of being the first member of the Methodist Church in Port Angeles. Her father was instrumental in the construction of the church, contributing $50,000 so that the church could be built. The family raised money for the pipe organ, which she played as church organist. All the family attended the Methodist church. Wendy and Brent attended Sunday school, sang in the choir and

Brent helped organize the church softball team. At age 66, she set out to complete a dream: She enrolled at Shoreline Community College. At 71 she earned her AA degree and was accepted to the University of Washington. She declined to study music, her greatest strength. “I already know that,” she said, “I want to earn a degree in something new.” In 1998, at age 76, Betty earned her BA in English — and quite a celebration ensued, with family coming from around the country to lift sparkling cider in her honor. She continued to talk of earning her master’s and applied to University of Washington and Western Washington University. Betty is survived by her son, Brent Northup, of Helena, Montana, a professor of Communication at Carroll College in Helena, Montana; and her daughter, Wendy Barone of Lynnwood, Washington, owner with her husband, Gino, of Barone Crystal in Seattle; her granddaughter, Gina Barone Simmons of Chicago, Illinois; and her granddaughter, Katherine Northup of Helena, Montana. A memorial service of pipe organ music will be held on Saturday, March 12, 2011, at 2 p.m. at University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle. For further information contact Brent Northup,, (406) 459-2371. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Northwest Hospital Foundation, Seattle, Washington. Betty is buried at Tahoma National Cemetery, Kent, Washington. Her marker reads, in part: Betty May Brooks, 19212011. Our Amazing Mom. UW, Class of ’98.

College students learning . . . anything? THE COST OF college has skyrocketed, and a four-year degree has become an ever more essential cornerstone to a middleclass standard of living. But what are America’s Bob kids actually learning in Herbert college? For an awful lot of students, the answer appears to be not much. A provocative new book, Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses, makes a strong case that for a large portion of the nation’s seemingly successful undergraduates, the years in college barely improve their skills in critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing. Intellectual effort and academic rigor, in the minds of many of the nation’s college students, is becoming increasingly less important. According to the authors, Professors Richard Arum of New York University and Josipa Roksa of the University of Virginia:

“Many students come to college not only poorly prepared by prior schooling for highly demanding academic tasks that ideally lie in front of them, but — more troubling still — they enter college with attitudes, norms, values and behaviors that are often at odds with academic commitment.” Students are hitting the books less and partying more. Easier courses and easier majors have become more and more popular. Perhaps more now than ever, the point of the college experience is to have a good time and walk away with a valuable credential after putting in the least effort possible. What many of those students are not walking away with is something that has long been recognized as invaluable — higher order thinking and reasoning skills. They can get their degrees without putting in more of an effort because in far too many instances, the colleges and universities are not demanding more of them. The authors cite empirical work showing that the average amount of time spent studying

by college students has dropped by more than 50 percent since the early 1960s. But a lack of academic focus has not had much of an effect on grade point averages or the ability of the undergraduates to obtain their degrees. Thirty-six percent of the students said they studied alone less than five hours a week. Nevertheless, their transcripts showed a collective grade point average of 3.16. “Their GPAs are between a B and a B-plus,” said Arum, “which says to me that it’s not the students, really — they share some of the blame — but the colleges and universities have set up a system so that there are ways to navigate through it without taking difficult courses and still get the credential.” The book is based on a study, led by Arum, that followed more than 2,300 students at a broad range of schools from the fall of 2005 to the spring of 2009. The study (available at www. showed that in their first two years of college, 45 percent of the students made no significant improvement in skills related to critical thinking, complex reasoning and

Peninsula Voices Paper or plastic? Each time I am in line at the grocery store, I hear people ask: Is plastic OK? Usually, the response from customers is yes. I feel strongly that the answer should be no for the sake of us all. First off, locally our landfill in Port Angeles is filled, so our trash is compacted and sent to Oregon. This can only increase our trash bill. Buried plastic stays intact forever. That landfill will also be filled. Even more of a detriment to us is that the plastics end up in the ocean. The fish we now consume contains PCBs, DDT and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS) absorbed by the plastic floating in the sea. Jellyfish eat plastic, fish eat jellyfish — and we eat fish. Two hundred and sixty seven species of animals, including us, are affected by plastics. Even the plastics that are recycled can end up in China, where they are melted and cause air pollution here that we breathe. There is a Great Pacific Garbage Patch of plastic particles thought to be twice the size of Texas. There is a North Atlantic Garbage Patch also of the plastic debris caused by the ocean currents. Please, when asked is plastic OK say, “I prefer paper.” Or, even better yet, use the reusable bags provided by our stores. The problem is immense, but we as individuals can contribute less to this problem. Kassandra Kersting, Sequim

Carbon is the world’s primary absorber of energy. It stores energy like a battery to maintain energy balance of incoming power from the sun and thus serves to equalize earthly energy consumption and storage. Climate is the energy exchanger of the Earth. It balances the ratio of in and out energy and maintains it to avoid excessive and violent energy exchanges that manifest itself in the weather. The weather is the exchanger, and when there is an excess of energy that cannot be stored or is released too quickly, the wind patterns collect and distribute that carboncarrying energy.

ACCORDING TO THE United Nations, there are far more men than women on the planet. The gender gap is especially pronounced in Asia, where there are 100 million more guys than girls. The question left open by economists is what the consequences will be of such a large surplus of young men. History offers a disquieting answer. According to the German scholar Gunnar Heinsohn, European imperial expansion after 1500 was the result of a male “youth bulge.” Japan’s imperial expansion after 1914 was the result of a similar youth bulge, Heinsohn argues. He has also linked the recent rise of Islamist extremism in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan to an Islamic youth bulge. Political scientists Valerie Hudson and Andrea den Boer warn that China and India could be the next countries to overdose on testosterone. Peninsula Daily News sources

The Earth has an energycarbon carrying genie, and when it releases energy too fast as is happening today, the sudden excess of carboncarrying energy will wreak havoc in the form of hurricanes, tornadoes and torrential rain and snow storms. That excessive energy release chasing itself is like a dog chasing its tail. There is no end. For millions of years, carbon has been stored primarily in plants and tiny sea animals that die and form huge deposits of coal and oil. When more of the stored energy is used in excess of carbon energy being stored,

role in the lifetime potential of America’s young people. It can leave the United States at a disadvantage in the global marketplace. But, more important, the students are cheating themselves — and being cheated — of the richer, more satisfying lives that should be the real payoff of a four-year college experience. “You have to ask what this means for a democratic society,” said Arum. “This is the portion of the population that you would expect to demonstrate civic leadership in the future, civic engagement. “They are the ones we would expect to be struggling to understand the world, to think critically about the rhetoric out there, and to make informed, reasoned decisions. “If they’re not developing their higher order skills, it means they’re not developing the attitudes and dispositions that are needed to even understand that that’s important.” ________

key, then maybe we could balance the budget, maybe even have health care or better education for our children. Treatment, not prisons, is much more cost effective. Do the math.

communication. After the full four years, 36 percent still had not substantially improved those skills. The development of such skills is generally thought to be the core function of a college education. The students who don’t develop them may leave college with a degree and an expanded circle of friends, but little more. Many of these young men and women are unable to communicate effectively, solve simple intellectual tasks (such as distinguishing fact from opinion), or engage in effective problem-solving. “This is a terrible disservice, not only to those students, but also to the larger society,” said Arum. “I really think it’s important to get the word out about the lack of academic rigor and intellectual engagement that’s occurring at colleges and universities today.” While there are certainly plenty of students doing very well and learning a great deal in college, this large increase in the number of students just skating by should be of enormous concern in an era in which a college education plays such a crucial

More than 1,000 people across our 15-county service area would lose access to critical job training resulting in severe economic impact to the community in lost wages and payroll taxes from people who are placed in jobs. The House vote comes at a time when there is an increased demand for Goodwill, which served more than 9,500 people last year and is on pace to serve 12,000 this year. More than 40 people in Clallam and Jefferson counties participate in Goodwill programs, including youth services that also faces cutbacks. The time is now to speak against these cuts — as consideration takes place through early March on a spending agreement to fund the federal government — because jobs change lives.

Perhaps you’re not interested in financial markets, or maybe you don’t understand how capital flows through the system. Unfortunately, these excuses are invalid in the real world. Despite lacking interest or neglecting to understand your finances, you have a duty to do the research and understand where your money is and how it is working to sustain your life during your retirement years. Even if you’ve delegated your retirement planning to someone wearing a suit with three or four capital letters behind his or her name, you will need to think for yourself to ensure that your retirement plan (cash flow) doesn’t suddenly stop working.

Pirates in title game


Peninsula holds off Spokane 78-74 in semis Peninsula Daily News

KENNEWICK — For the first time in its history, the Peninsula College men’s basketball team is playing for all the NWAACC Tournament marbles. The Pirates held off hotshooting Spokane 78-74 behind point guard Mitrell Clark’s 23 points and nine rebounds. Superstar center DeShaun Freeman, who barely missed conference MVP honors this season, scored the deciding points when Spokane was just one point behind with 14 seconds on the clock. Clark took the ball down the court, beating a trap that two Spokane guards had set for him,

The Associated Press

Former Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins offensive guard Pete Kendall leaves after negotiations between the NFL Players Association and the NFL owners ended for the day on Monday in Washington.

Talks last four hours By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Trying to work their way to a new labor deal, Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith resumed negotiations for four hours Monday. With both sides adhering to mediator George Cohen’s admonition that they not discuss the talks publicly, it wasn’t clear how much — if any — progress was made in the shorter-than-usual session. The only sure thing: The sides planned to meet again today. The current collective bargaining agreement originally was set to expire last week, but two extensions have now pushed the cutoff to the end of Friday. After months of infrequent formal negotiations and plenty of acrimony, the sides have spent 12 days at the Federal Mediation Conciliation Service, but they still remain apart on key economic issues. What will happen the rest of this week is still anyone’s guess. If a deal isn’t reached, the sides could agree to yet another extension and negotiate beyond Friday. Or talks could break off, leading to, possibly, a lockout by owners or antitrust lawsuits by players. The NFL has not lost games to a work stoppage in nearly a quartercentury, and by agreeing to continue with mediation, the league and union made it clear neither was quite ready to make the drastic move of shutting down a sport that rakes in more than $9 billion a year in revenues and is more popular than ever. The past two Super Bowls rank No. 1 and No. 2 among mostwatched TV programs in U.S. history. The old CBA was agreed to in 2006, and owners exercised an optout clause in 2008, leading to the current stalemate. Money, not surprisingly, is at the center of it all. One person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press last week that the NFLPA has not agreed to any major economic concessions — and that the NFL has not agreed to the union’s long-held demand that the league completely open its books and share all financial information. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Cohen insists that everyone involved stay mum about the substance of the talks. Turn




and passing inside to Freeman, who thundered the ball home and was fouled with 2.2 seconds left. Freeman made the Clark free throw and ended up with 12 points, six rebounds and a blocked shot despite playing only 18 minutes because of foul trouble. “DeShaun picked up two fouls in the first 1:45 of the game and played with foul trouble the whole night,” Peninsula coach

Lance Von Vogt said. The Pirates (22-7) will play Pierce (23-6) for the NWAACC championship at 7 p.m. in the Toyota Center. Pierce earned the right by pounding powerhouse Big Bend (23-5) 76-65 in the other semifinal game. The best the Pirates have done before this year was win the state championship behind MVP Bernie Fryer in 1970 but that was before the creation of the NWAACC and its 34 teams. Von Vogt says he knows nothing about Pierce. “I will be staying up all night watching film and coming up with a game plan,” he said late Monday night. “They play in a different division and they have been playing on the opposite side of the bracket from us, so I have not been able to watch them play.” But the Pirates will win if

they follow their game plan, Von Vogt said. “We have 24 hours to come up with a game plan but if we execute our stuff and play to our tempo, we will be successful. “Our goal at the beginning of the season was to play for the NWAACC championship, and we have given ourselves that opportunity [tonight]. “I’m proud of our guys.They have shown toughness on the court all tournament long.” Clark sank 23 points with 3 of 4 shooting beyond the arc and 7 of 8 shooting from the line. Sammeon Waller scored 16 points while Thad Vinson canned 11. Guard Waller led on the boards with 10 rebounds for a double-double whileWaller and Clark had four assists each. Anthony Williams added eight rebounds.

Zags win WCC tourney Gray sparks Gonzaga vs. Saint Mary’s The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Gonzaga’s Steven Gray didn’t mind walking away from Monday night’s showdown with Saint Mary’s sporting four stitches above his left eye. A sense of peace numbed any pain he felt after Gonzaga’s 75-63 win gave the Bulldogs their second West Coast Conference tournament title in three years. “It’s a great feeling knowing that come Sunday, we’re not sitting there sweating,” Gray said of Gonzaga earning an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament for its 13th straight appearance. “It’s a great feeling to know we’re in.” Saint Mary’s (24-8) will have to hope for an at-large berth after losing four times in the last six games, including an 89-85 overtime loss to the Bulldogs on Feb. 24. Monday night’s matchup was just as close, even if the final score might not reflect it.

Felix gets his spring feet wet Mariners ace fans 3 in short outing The Associated Press

Steve Mullensky/for Peninsula Daily News

Practice for high school spring sports started Monday around the North Olympic Peninsula. Port Townsend boys basketball guard Kyle Kelly traded his gym shoes for spikes, a bat and a ball as he takes his cuts in batting practice at Port Townsend High School on Monday.

PHOENIX — Mariners ace Felix Hernandez was fortunate to get through his first batter of spring training. Hernandez, the 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, shook off a line drive by A’s leadoff hitter David DeJesus that just missed hitting him in the head. He stayed in the game and struck out three in 2 2/3 innings of his spring debut and the Seattle Mariners defeated the Oakland Athletics 6-3 on Monday. “It was fun,” Hernandez said. “It’s been a while since I pitched in a big league game, but I feel pretty good. “I was down in the zone, throwing a lot of strikes.” Hernandez allowed a run and five hits with three strikeouts and a walk. He threw 53 pitches and had a quick chat with DeJesus while walking back to the dugout after the first inning. Turn

Gonzaga women win crown By LYNN DeBRUIN The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves has seen Courtney Vandersloot make some pretty spectacular plays. Yet none topped the baseline move the star guard made Monday against St. Mary’s intimidator Louella Tomlinson, the NCAA’s career leader in blocked shots. Vandersloot’s up-andunder reverse layup high off the glass helped fuel a 72-46 Gonzaga victory against the Gaels and gave the Bulldogs their third straight West Coast Conference tourney title. “Oh my gosh,” Graves said of the acrobatic move. “Honestly, I’ve never seen that from anybody I’ve coached.” With 18 points, a careerhigh 16 assists, two steals and a block in the finals, Vandersloot showed she was worthy of the Naismith Award as the women’s top collegiate player 5-foot-8 and under. “It was nice that everybody got to see what we see all the time,” Graves said of Monday’s nationally televised game. The Bulldogs (28-4) now turn their attention to the NCAA tournament, where they advanced to the Sweet 16 a year ago. “I think we’re going to surprise some people,” said Vandersloot, who was selected Most Valuable Player of the WCC tourney. “We made a good run last year, but we’re not settling for that.” Players believe Monday’s effort will help round out their game. “I’m proud of how we reacted,” Vandersloot said of countering Saint Mary’s strategy to slow the pace. “We proved to ourselves that we can play a halfcourt game.” In the first half, the

The Associated Press

Gonzaga’s Katelan Redmon, left, celebrates with teammates after Gonzaga defeated Saint Mary’s 72-46 in the championship game of the West Coast Conference women’s NCAA college basketball tournament game on Monday in Las Vegas. Gaels applied full-court pressure defensively against the nation’s highest-scoring team, and often walked the ball up the court when they had it before driving toward the basket and drawing a foul. The strategy worked early as Saint Mary’s drew 10 fouls and went to the line 13 times in the first half, making nine, compared to 1 of 1 for Gonzaga, which was held scoreless for 4½ minutes.

Scoring machine Gonzaga beat Saint Mary’s 107-66 and 106-66 during the regular season and figured the Gaels would try to do something different Monday. “This surprised me a little bit,” Graves said. “They executed it well. In the end we turned up the defense and once we got our fast break cranking, good things happen.”

Not surprisingly, it was Vandersloot’s 3-pointer that sparked a 20-5 Gonzaga run, turning a 15-8 deficit into a 28-20 halftime lead. Gonzaga outscored Saint Mary’s 44-26 in the second half, holding the Gaels to 27.5 percent shooting (14 of 51), forcing 18 turnovers and outscoring them 14-0 on the break. “Eventually, they made us play fast,” said Saint Mary’s coach Paul Thomas, whose team is headed to the women’s National Invitational Tournament. “They half-court pressed us and they full-court pressed us. “As the clock wound down, we were taking jump shots and they were off to the races. They convert your mistakes into baskets really well.” Freshman Danielle Mauldin led Saint Mary’s (19-12) with 19 points and 10 rebounds, while Tomlin-

son added eight rebounds, seven points and five blocks. Katelan Redmon had 17 points, six rebounds and three steals for Gonzaga, while Kayla Standish added 10 boards and eight points. Gonzaga shot 50.8 percent overall, and 71.4 percent from 3-point range (5 of 7), and held a 42-22 advantage in the paint. Despite losing by 26, Thomas called it “progress,” first holding off San Diego on Sunday to reach the finals, then starting strong against Gonzaga. “Hopefully this is a steppingstone, and we can expect to be in the finals every year,” Thomas said. He wasn’t sad that he had faced Vandersloot for the final time. “If I was starting a team right now, I’d start with her,” Thomas said. “She makes everyone around her better.”

OLYMPIA — A Republican-led motion to bring a vote on a bill that would have restricted driver’s licenses access to illegal immigrants and attempted to stop other identification fraud was defeated Monday in the state Senate. In a procedural motion, Republicans asked the Senate to consider the bill, which had not been brought to the floor by Democrats, who hold the majority and control of which bills get a vote. But the motion failed 23-25 in the waning minutes of a deadline to vote on bills in their chambers of origin. Washington state is one of two states in the country that still let illegal immigrants obtain driver’s licenses. New Mexico is the other state that still allows such practice, but lawmakers there are also considering bills to close the access. Gov. Chris Gregoire has said that if the Legislature passed a bill dealing with driver’s licenses, she would sign it. The bill would have required applicants for driver’s license to provide proof of residency and a Social Security number. Supporters had said the bill aimed to stop identification fraud.

ashington state is one of two states in the country that still let illegal immigrants obtain driver’s licenses. New Mexico is the other state that still allows such practice, but lawmakers there are also considering bills to close the access.

Opponents said that it would have led the illegal immigrant community to drive without licenses and car insurance — and that restricting driver’s licenses does not address immigration issues. They also have said that the estimated cost of the bill — about $1.5 million for security measures — is too expensive in a year that the state faces a deficit. After Monday’s defeat, the bill appears dead. No other licenses bill received a vote on the House. Legislators worked on dozens of measures Monday as they hit a Monday deadline for voting bills out of their houses of origin. Bills must pass both the House and Senate before they can be signed into law by Gov. Gregoire. Bills that were not sent to the other house by Monday die unless resurrected in a special vote.

Honda, Toyota, Chrysler issue recalls The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Honda recalled more than 35,000 Civic hybrids in the United States on Monday to fix a problem with the electrical system that could cause the headlights to turn off or the engine to stall. Separately, Toyota recalled about 22,000 SUVs and trucks to address faulty tire-pressure monitoring systems. Chrysler recalled about 20,000 Jeep Wranglers over steering issues. Honda Motor Co. told the government its recall would cover 2006-2007

model year Civic hybrids. The company said the voltage converter that relays power from the motor assist system to the vehicle’s electrical components could fail. Honda has received seven reports of stalling engines and 82 warranty claims connected to the problem. Dealers will replace the voltage converter at no charge. Toyota Motor Corp.’s recall includes some versions of the 2008-2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma

and Tundra. The systems that monitor the vehicles’ tire pressure did not comply with federal safety standards. Toyota said the systems didn’t illuminate on the dashboard at the minimum activation pressure and needed to be recalibrated. Owners will be notified of the recall at a future date. Dealers will fix the tire-pressure monitoring system. Owners can phone Toyota at 800-331-4331. Chrysler Group LLC said its Jeep recall covers Wranglers from the 2010-

2011 model years over potential loose fasteners to the front and rear axles. The issue could cause poor steering and handling or cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. The Wranglers were built from mid-July 2010 through mid-September 2010. The recall is expected to begin in mid-March. Dealers will tighten the fasteners. Owners can phone Chrysler at 800-853-1403. Owners can phone Honda at 800-999-1009 and select option four.

Oil hits $105 per barrel over Libya jitters Peninsula Daily News news services

NEW YORK — Oil prices continued to set new post-recession highs Monday as forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi pounded rebels near a key oil port in Libya. It is unclear how long the country’s oil exports will be cut off, and traders prepared for a worst-case scenario in which world supplies would be under pressure for months. Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for April delivery gained $1.02 to settle at $105.44 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The price almost hit $107 per barrel earlier in electronic trading, the highest level since Sept. 26, 2008. The rise in oil is driving U.S. gasoline prices to levels that weren’t expected for at least another month.

Pump prices have jumped an average of 39 cents per gallon since the Libyan uprising began in mid-February, forcing motorists to pay an additional $146 million per day for the same amount of fuel.

$3.65 a gallon locally The national average hit $3.509 per gallon on Monday, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. On the North Olympic Peninsula, the average price for regular is $3.65. OPEC has ramped up production to make up for the loss of Libyan crude. The Financial Times newspaper reported Monday that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Nigeria are planning to put another 1 million barrels per day on the market. The Obama administra-

tion is evaluating whether to tap U.S. strategic oil reserves to slow the rising price of oil. A White House spokesman said officials will base that decision on a variety of factors, including the flow of oil to the U.S. In other financial news:

Consumer credit Consumers borrowed more in January to purchase new cars — but were once again frugal with their credit cards, offering a mixed sign of their confidence in the economy. Borrowing rose 2.5 percent, or by $5 billion, the Federal Reserve said Monday. It was the fourth consecutive monthly gain and it increased total consumer debt to $2.41 trillion. Strong car sales drove the increase. The category that includes auto loans rose 6.9 percent.

But credit card debt fell 6.4 percent in January — the 28th decline in 29 months — to the lowest level since September 2004. Americans had increased their use of plastic in December for the first time since the financial crisis. But they cut back the following month, even though a Social Security tax cut is giving most households an extra $1,000 to $2,000 this year. “People are still pretty cautious about using their credit cards,” said David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s in New York. “We are coming out of a deep recession in which a lot of people got caught with too much debt.”

Airline fares climb United Continental Holdings Inc., the world’s biggest airline company, said it will cut unprofitable

routes because of rising fuel prices. The airline also said it may remove less fuel-efficient planes from its fleet. United said the amount of flying it does this year will remain about the same as last year. It had previously planned to grow as much as 2 percent. Fuel has become the largest single expense for most airlines. Flying less is one way they can offset it.

Raising fares is another — and they’ve been doing that aggressively. Over the weekend, Southwest Airlines Co. joined a $10 increase started by other airlines on many domestic round-trip fares. It’s the sixth time airlines have raised fares already this year. CEO Rick Seaney said leisure travelers may now have to pay $260 for a ticket that cost $200 back on Jan. 1.

A feral cat eats cat food on a rock on Ediz Hook in Port Angeles.

“It’s important as a community that we take care of our animals. Some person started this colony. It’s not my problem. It’s not your problem. It’s our problem. These cats have every right to a good life, as people do.”

Mary Margolis One of several people that feeds feral cats on Ediz Hook

“It’s important as a community that we take care of our animals,” Margolis said. “Some person started this colony. It’s not my problem. It’s not your problem. It’s our problem. These cats have every right to a good life, as people do.” But are they feeding the problem by feeding the cats? Margolis said they’ve been yelled at by passersby — including one man who was walking his dog — while on their mission of mercy. They’ve been told their kitty compassion encourages people to make Ediz Hook a cat-dumping ground. “I tell them [the cats] didn’t ask to be out there,” Margolis said in a phone interview. “Why should they suffer more than they already are? They are not bred to be out there at the beach. They need to be protected and fed, and I feel it’s important we take care of them. “Yes, I’m still idealistic,” she added.

Near tip of spit

Ruth Cones pours cat food into one of the bowls put out on the Port Angeles Harbor spit.

On a recent trip to the Hook, Margolis and Cones drew the cats out of hiding by tapping cat food cans on shoreline boulders near the entrance to Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles, near the tip of the spit. They dispensed cat food and kind words. Several empty bowls were sheltered by dock platforms placed in the parking area for winter. “There’s no fresh water out here unless it rains,” Cones said.

Bill Roby uses a spoon to feed one of the Ediz Hook denizens.

Roby held out a spoon clumped with food while a cat, perched on a boulder, daintily licked the utensil. “That one I call Garfield,” the Port Angeles resident said. “He’s a pig.” An amateur photographer, Roby started feeding the cats so they would stop bugging him. He wouldn’t call himself a cat person, he said, but feeding them works to his benefit.

Bribing the cats “If I didn’t bribe the cats, they would attack the tripod,” Roby said. Margolis and Cones, who feed the cats about three or four times a week, don’t like to name the felines for fear of becoming too attached to the critters. Some cats get run over. Others have been poisoned. Others simply vanish, they said. “A number of kittens have died or been killed in the last six months,” Margolis said. “What happens is that people get pets and maybe they can’t afford to get them spayed,” she said. “Maybe they have babies and can’t afford to give them to anybody.” These cats have it better than some house cats as far as getting fixed: Safe Haven, operated by Peninsula Friends of Animals, traps the cats, spays and neuters them, then returns them to the Hook. Friends of Animals board member Sharon Palmer, also the spay and neuter coordinator for low-income families, said

Wednesday the organization charges $55 to low-income dog and cat owners for spay-neuter procedures that otherwise range from about $125 to $325 for owners who cover the expense on their own. Margolis, Cones and Palmer said Coast Guard personnel also help keep the cats alive by feeding them. “Some of the boys are very good about this,” Palmer said, adding that a feral cat’s lifespan is about two years.

Don’t take them home It might be tempting, but Olympic Peninsula Humane Society Shelter Manager Suzy Zustiak, a veterinarian, does not recommend picking up any feral cats and trying to take them home. “I would never say it’s a good idea to pick up a wild cat,” she said. Better to trap the feline — though don’t leave an empty trap out there — see if it’s friendly, and take it to a veterinarian for rabies shots and other medical care before deciding to keep it, Zustiak said. But for the nameless inhabitants of the Ediz Hook kitty colony, spaying and neutering amounts to a timeout in the warm confines of Safe Haven. They are taken back to windswept Ediz Hook to wait for their next meal from within the crevices and cracks of the rip-rap.

Tell boy, parents about dog’s injuries


DEAR ABBY: My 9-year-old son’s friend “Isaac” was over for a visit. He was captivated by our Labrador retriever, “Layla,” who is very loving. Isaac doesn’t have a dog, so he wanted to play with Layla. At one point, I overheard him say to my son, “Look, I’m riding your dog!” I immediately intervened, but I was too late. A day or so later, Layla was unable to descend our stairway and was clearly in pain. She has been on pain medication for three weeks and is growing progressively worse. The next step is to get X-rays and/or an MRI to see if she has a spinal injury, and then determine her treatment. It’s possible the damage is irreversible. My wife and I are extremely upset about this, but we’re afraid to tell our son or Isaac and his parents for fear it will place undue guilt on a 9-year-old boy. On the flip side, I wouldn’t want him to do this to anyone else’s beloved pet. How do you recommend we proceed? Heartbroken in New York


the point across.

Van Buren

Dear Abby: My wife and I recently attended the funeral of a friend’s father. During the sermon, I noticed tears in our friend’s eyes and offered her my handkerchief. On the way home, this sparked a conversation about the obligation of a person who receives a handkerchief. Should it be returned after the event, or should it first be laundered? Or is it considered a gift, not to be returned at all? Later that evening at a movie, I noticed a woman hand someone her handkerchief saying, “It’s monogrammed. It was my mother’s.” No mention was made of a request that it be returned.

specification. 2 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do what you can for others without judging or you will end up being the one criticized. Crossing the line between right and wrong will lead to aggressive and unsavory action. Take an easygoing and humble approach if you want to excel. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Attend work-related events that can help you connect with people in your field. The more contacts you have, the easier it will be to stay on top of interesting positions that may open up. Right time, right place lead to success. 2 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pull in help from whatever source you can to get things done, but keep a close watch. You will be judged on your performance as a leader and a team player, so you will only be as good as your weakest link. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Separate what you want from what you don’t and move forward. Greater opportunities will come if you accommodate others and become more self-sufficient. Good relationships will complement you. 5 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Uncertainty will set you back. Whether it’s you who cannot make up your mind or someone you are collaborating with, be willing to make a decision. An unexpected question will leave you in an awkward position. Honesty will spare you further grief. 4 stars


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use your imagination on the job and you will secure your position. Taking an authoritative stance will prove that you are able to delegate work as well as get the job done on time and to

An old flame is thinking about you. Make contact. 5 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let an emotional situation distract you. It’s important to finish what you start. Take on the tasks you yourself own and you will show everyone how competent you are. 2 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Now is the time to put a little cash away for an unexpected expense. Lending and borrowing will backfire, causing a problem between you and someone who is important to you. A responsible attitude will set the way for how others treat you. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have trouble hiding your feelings, so clear the air. Communication will be necessary if you want to be successful in love, life and your financial position. A clear conscience will enable you to strive for your goals without hesitation. 3 stars
