State’s top salaries go to coaches
PORT TOWNSEND — Representatives of three North Olympic Peninsula cities appeared before the state Transportation Commission on Wednesday seeking funding support for their future road projects. “Most local streets are deteriorating with more traffic than they can handle,” Port Townsend Mayor David King said. “In order to support community programs, we have needed to defer financing on street repair.”
Sequim Mayor Ken Hays and Port Angeles’ director of community and economic development, Nathan West, accompanied by City Councilman Patrick Downie, also addressed the commission. The seven-measure commission is made up of representatives throughout the state and is nominated by the governor to provide input about transportation policy to the Legislature. “We are here to help you,” said Commission Chair Dan O’Neal of Mason County. “The Legislature doesn’t buy everything we suggest, but at
least we can help to move the discussion forward and get the issues before them.”
Needs exceed resources The issue, as stated by commission policy analyst Paul Parker, is that needs exceed resources. “We are at a crossroads,” Parker said. “Improving mobility is essential to our economy, but the transportation needs outstrip the funds that are available.” TURN TO TRANSPORTATION/A4

UW’s Sarkisian pulls in $2.7 million a year THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — College coaches are the toppaid state employees in Washington, according to a list of 2012 public salaries released by the state Office of Financial Management. University of Washington football coach Steve Sarkisian earned $2.7 million last year, followed by Washington State University football coach Mike Leach at $2.3 million. Third on the list is UW basketball coach Lorenzo Romar at $1.35 million, and fourth is WSU coach Ken Sarkisian Bone at $855,000. By comparison, former Gov. Chris Gregoire — the state’s chief executive in 2012 — earned $162,000 after forfeiting a portion of her pay when other state workers’ pay was cut. Most state workers saw a 3 percent reduction in pay since July 2011.
Complete list available The complete list of state salaries is online at http://fiscal.wa.gov/Salaries.aspx. Coaches are paid from athletic department revenue, such as ticket sales and television rights, or gifts, not taxpayer funds. The first non-coach is fifth on the list — Washington State University President Elson Floyd at $625,000, and sixth is UW president Michael Young at $563,000. TURN

Port Angeles teens take their responsibilities seriously BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — As candidates for the Port Angeles School Board gear up for summer and fall elections, one nonvoting position already has been decided. Bailey Palmer, 15, was elected as student representative to the Port Angeles School District Board of Directors last March in a student election in which 687 students — more than half of the Port Angeles High student body — cast ballots to select the 2013-2014
student government. Bailey, who will be a junior in September, has a grade-point average of 3.8 and served as class treasurer and president, and 4-H club treasurer.

She will present the student report at the June 10 meeting under the tutelage of incumbent Laurel Jenkins and then take over in July. Jenkins, 18, will graduate from Port Angeles High on June 14. She has been accepted into Western Washington University in the fall as a business major.

Eatery learns Web reviews make, break IT WAS THE customer service disaster heard around the Internet. An Arizona restaurateur, fed up after years of negative online reviews and an embarrassing appearance on a reality television show, allegedly posted a social media rant laced with salty language and angry, uppercase letters that quickly went viral last week, to the delight of people who love a good Internet meltdown. “I AM NOT STUPID ALL OF YOU ARE,” read the posting on the Facebook wall of Amy’s Baking Co. in Scottsdale, Ariz. “YOU JUST DO NOT KNOW GOOD FOOD.” It was, to put it kindly, not a best business practice. Add to that an appearance earlier this month on the Fox reality TV show “Kitchen Nightmares” — where celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay gave up on trying to reform the restaurant after the owners refused to listen to his advice — and you have a recipe for disaster.

During the 15 years of her leadership, the group increased its membership to 50,000 from 3,500 and intensified its focus on demanding research into the causes of breast cancer, particularly links to environmental pollutants such as chemicals in food and the water supply, an area of research rife with unreliable data. Ms. Brenner was among the first to question what she called the “pinkwashing” of America: the proliferation of pink ribbons and
products carrying labels stating that part of the purchase price would go to breast cancer research. Her group started a campaign, “Think Before You Pink,” urging consumers to look into how much money was donated and where it went.

1938 (75 years ago) Between $800 and $1,000 in cash were lifted from the safe of the Joyce Mercantile Co. sometime Sunday night or early Monday, proprietor William Wilder reported to Clallam County Sheriff Charles Kemp. Entrance was made through a broken window pane in the front of the store, and the safecracker left the same way. A cold chisel was used to rip off the combination knob, and an ordinary punch then was employed
to punch out the tumblers. Besides the money, six cartons of cigarettes were reported missing.
1963 (50 years ago) Three little Port Angeles girls now know better than to taste anything they find in discarded medicine bottles. The girls, all between ages 2 and 4, found an old prescription bottle in a shed on Dolan Avenue. Complaining to their mothers of burning mouths, the girls were rushed to Olympic Memo-
rial Hospital while the bottle was checked to see what the girls had eaten. Three of the four had their stomachs pumped. One of them was taken to University of Washington Hospital in Seattle critically ill with mercury poisoning.
1988 (25 years ago) The Coast Guard and state Department of Ecology still are investigating last month’s grounding of a 490-foot Japanese tanker ship about 50 yards off Whiskey Creek Beach west

The ship’s damaged holds were carrying cottonseed oil, which was transferred onto a barge. Other cargo holds, which contain more than 5,000 metric tons of food and lubricating oils, were not damaged, the Coast Guard said.

A3 Briefly: Nation Holder admits drones killed 4 Americans WASHINGTON — The Obama administration acknowledged for the first time Wednesday that four American citizens have been killed in drone strikes since 2009 in Pakistan and Yemen. The disclosure to Congress came on the eve of a major national security speech by President Barack Obama. In conducting U.S. counterterrorism operations against alQaida and its associated forces, the government has targeted and killed one American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, and is aware of the killing by U.S. drones of three others, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy. Al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric, was killed in a drone strike in September 2011 in Yemen. Holder said three other Americans had been killed by drones since 2009 but were not targeted. They are Samir Khan, killed in the same strike as alAwlaki; al-Awlaki’s 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, a native of Denver, killed in Yemen two weeks later; and Jude Kenan Mohammed, killed in a drone strike in Pakistan.
Lerner takes the fifth WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the storm over the agency’s targeting of
conservative groups told Congress on Wednesday that she had done nothing wrong in the episode, then invoked her conLerner stitutional right to refuse to answer lawmakers’ questions. In one of the most electric moments since the IRS controversy erupted nearly two weeks ago, Lois Lerner defended herself during a brief appearance before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The committee is investigating the agency’s improper targeting of tea party and other conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status. “I have done nothing wrong,” said Lerner, reading from a written statement. “I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations, and I have not provided false information to this or any other committee.”
Immigration bill WASHINGTON — Legislation that grants a chance at citizenship to millions of immigrants living illegally in the United States cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee on a solid bipartisan vote Tuesday night after supporters somberly sidestepped a controversy over the rights of gay spouses. The 13-5 vote cleared the way for an epic showdown on the Senate floor. The Associated Press
Briefly: World Attack on man in London may be terrorism LONDON — Two men attacked another man near a London military barracks Wednesday in what British authorities were investigating as a possible terror act. One man is dead, and two others were injured. Prime Minister David Cameron called the killing “truly shocking” and said he’d asked Home Secretary Theresa May to call a meeting of the government’s emergency committee. A British government official who spoke only on condition of anonymity said the details that had emerged were indicative of a “terrorist-motivated attack.” May said she had been briefed by Britain’s domestic security service, MI5, and by police on what she called a “sickening and barbaric” attack. Britain’s Ministry of Defense said it was urgently investigating reports that a soldier was involved in the incident. Police said armed officers responded to reports of the assault Wednesday afternoon just a few blocks from the Royal Artillery Barracks in southeast London. Cmdr. Simon Letchford said reports indicated that one man was being assaulted by two other men and that a number of weapons — including possibly a firearm — were used in the attack.
Trial for Costa captain ROME — An Italian judge has ordered the captain of the Costa Concordia cruise ship to stand trial for manslaughter in the vessel’s 2012 shipwreck off the coast of Tuscany, which killed 32 people. Judge Pietro Molino, at a closed-door hearing Wednesday in the town of Grosseto, agreed to prosecutors’ request that Capt. Francesco Schettino Schettino of Italy be tried on charges of manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning the vessel while many of its 4,200 passengers and crew were still aboard. Passengers said the ship’s evacuation was delayed and chaotic.
No shelter at school flattened by tornado Damage could top $2 billion in Moore, Okla. PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SERVICES
MOORE, Okla. — At the end of the day Monday, in the last week of the school year, students at Plaza Towers Elementary in this blue-collar suburb were zipping their backpacks. A fifth-grade class had just finished watching a movie about a boy who survives the crash-landing of a plane in the Canadian wilderness. Then the sirens started to wail. Echo Mackey, crouched in a hallway, hugging her son Logan, a first-grader, said, “I heard someone say, ‘It’s about to hit us,’ and then the power went out.” The mountain of rubble that was once Plaza Towers Elementary School has become the emotional and physical focal point of one of the most destructive tornadoes to strike Oklahoma. Although the casualty toll fluctuated wildly, officials said Tuesday that at least 24 people had died, including nine children, seven of them at Plaza Towers. The 1.3-mile-wide tornado that struck Plaza Towers stunned Oklahomans with both its size and the number of victims, dozens of whom were students.
Ceiling ripped away School windows were smashed and the ceiling ripped away, showering the students with glass, wood and pieces of insulation. “I couldn’t hear anything but people screaming and crying,” Claire Gossett said. “It felt like the school was just flying.” Seven students were killed when a cinder-block wall collapsed on them. Scores of children and their teachers survived by crowding into a girls’ bathroom, with the teachers lying on top of small children as the maelstrom

Rescue workers search through the rubble of Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla. removed the roof as easily as if it were made of cellophane. Parents and residents questioned whether Plaza Towers Elementary — a 47-year-old public school whose students range from pre-kindergartners to sixth-graders — was the safest place for the children to seek shelter. Albert Ashwood, director of the state Department of Emergency Management, said Plaza Towers and another hard-hit school in Oklahoma City, Briarwood Elementary, did not have safe rooms because the appropriate state financing had not been sought. The presence of safe rooms, he said, would “not necessarily” mean more students would have survived, but it is a “mitigating” factor. “This was a very unique tornado,” he said. Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said there were no basements at either of the affected schools and that no children had drowned, disputing an earlier
account from Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb. Storm researcher Tim Samaras, whose work is supported by the National Geographic Society, said sheltering in interior hallways is insufficient in a direct hit. “The only way you’re going to solve that problem is to build tornado-proof rooms in these schools that can hold 500 to 700 children. Unfortunately, it comes down to cost,” he said. “There is no part in a school building that can withstand an EF4 or EF5 tornado. None,” Samaras said.
Destroyed 13,000 homes State authorities said as many as 13,000 homes and may have caused $2 billion in overall damage, officials said Wednesday. Some 33,000 people were affected in some way by the storm, said Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, speaking at a news conference.
FBI: Florida man fatally shot during Boston bombing probe Mixed martial artist allegedly had knife
Iran nuclear expansion
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
VIENNA — The U.N. atomic agency Wednesday detailed rapid Iranian progress in two programs that the West fears are geared toward making nuclear weapons, saying Tehran has upgraded its uranium enrichment facilities and advanced in building a plutonium-producing reactor. The International Atomic Energy Agency said Tehran had installed close to 700 high-tech centrifuges used for uranium enrichment, which can produce the core of nuclear weapons. Iran denies the reactor will be used to make nuclear arms. The Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. — A Chechen immigrant was shot to death by authorities while being questioned in the Boston Marathon bombing case early Wednesday after he lunged at an FBI agent with a knife, officials said. Ibragim Todashev, a 27-yearold mixed martial arts fighter, was gunned down at his home during a meeting with the agent and two Massachusetts state troopers, authorities said. The agent was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. The FBI gave no details on why they were interested in Toda-
shev. But acquaintances said Todashev knew one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, from mixed martial Todashev arts fighting in Boston. Public records also show Todashev lived in Watertown, Mass., last year. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police days after the April 15 bombings. His brother, Dzhokhar, survived and is charged with carrying out the attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260 at the marathon. Saeed Dunkaev, a roommate of Todashev’s, told The Associated
Press that Todashev had lived with a group of other Chechens in a townhouse in Kissimmee. “He’s a regular guy, nothing wrong,” Dunkaev said. Another roommate, Khusen Tamarov, said the roommates were questioned by authorities Tuesday night. Todashev was afraid of being interrogated at a law enforcement office and had asked that the questioning take place someplace else, Tamarov said. “This is the last thing I thought they would do,” Tamarov said. “We had nothing to do with this. He had nothing to do with this.” Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release details of the investigation, said Todashev came at the FBI agent with a knife before he was shot.

THE U.S. AIR Force launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile from a California base Wednesday, a month after the test flight was postponed by tensions with North Korea. The Minuteman 3 lifted off at 6:27 a.m. Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base. It splashed down less than a halfhour later and 4,000 miles away at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, Air Force officials said. It was the first Minuteman testlaunch of 2013. Several missiles are launched from Vandenberg each year to verify the weapon system’s accuracy and reliability.
JURORS IN THE Jodi Arias murder trial told the judge Wednesday that they are unable to reach a unanimous verdict on whether the convicted murderer should get life or death for killing her boyfriend, prompting the judge to send them back to the deliberation room to work through their differences. The jurors reported their impasse after a few hours of deliberations that began Tuesday afternoon in Phoenix. Judge Sherry Stephens instructed them to try to identify areas of agreement. Under Arizona law, hung juries in the penalty phase of trials require a new jury to be seated to decide the punishment.

Chimborazo is farther from the center than Mount Everest because the Earth bulges at the equator. Sathwik of Plainville, Mass., got all five questions right in his one-on-one duel with the runner-up, 13-year-old Conrad Oberhaus of Lincolnshire, Ill.

Miura on Wednesday was already in the “death zone,” the steep, icy, oxygen-deficient area close to the 29,035foot summit. His rival, Min Bahadur Sherchan, from Nepal, was at the base camp preparing for his own attempt on the summit next week.

The student representative also travels with the board to state School Board conferences to attend workshops, take tours of the state Capitol and meet with state lawmakers and the governor. Director Sarah Methner, who is the School Board’s representative to both Port Angeles and Lincoln high schools, said working with student representatives has been advantageous to both the students and the board. Having a representative from the schools adds the student voice to decisions, such as whether students would take advantage of a new advanced-placement course or what they need for college applications, Methner said. “They give us that other perspective that isn’t the administration’s or the teachers’,” she said.

Jenkins was quieter but wasn’t afraid to speak up when she felt it was important, such as when the student government asked her to talk to the School Board about tightened rules at school dances, the School Board said. Jenkins also was more proactive, offering information on planning for future events, members said. “Laurel has been an advocate for her fellow students, [something] I’d love to continue to see with Bailey,” Methner said. Bailey said she expects to start slowly but become a voice for the directors. “I’d like to be active. I think I’ll be a little more active as my comfort level increases,” she said.
Methner added that there have been discussions to initiate a student body government at Lincoln High with the alternative high school’s own representative to the district School Board.

Bailey already has been given an agenda by her peers for the next year to take to the School Board. She said a student government summit held earlier this month identified two main issues the student leaders want to concentrate on in the 2013-2014 school year: finances and drug abuse. The finance issue is related to a student-administration standoff on dance policies that resulted in a dance boycott that has
hamstrung student fundraising. “ASB does pay for clubs and sports,” Jenkins said. That includes funding the trip for any student who earns a berth in a statelevel sports, music or academic competition, she said. The student government made the decision to increase the cost of an Associated Student Body membership ID card, which allows students into events at a reduced price, and increased the cost of a parking permit at school.
Concerns “People are concerned about raising the price at all,” Jenkins said, noting the high number of lowincome students in the district who might not be able to afford the increased fees. The recent death of a Port Angeles teenager due to a suspected heroin overdose and the arrest of another in relation to that death has the teenage government group talking about drug abuse among its peers. It expects its representative to communicate those concerns to the School Board, Jenkins said.

Visiting African choirs highlight of concert in PT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Two African choirs will arrive on the North Olympic Peninsula this weekend for the Fort Worden Children’s Choir Festival: the Makini Schools Children’s Choir from Nairobi, Kenya, and the Nairobi Girls’ Chorale. The singers will step up at 3 p.m. Saturday for the festival concert in McCurdy Pavilion at Fort Worden State Park, 200 Battery Way. This event is part of the Makini choir’s first tour of the United States. Admission to the concert is $15 for adults or $12 for students and senior citizens, and patrons may buy tickets in advance by phoning Stephanie Charbonneau of Exceptional Choral Events at 360-271-8086. Tickets also will be sold at the door Saturday. The Makini Schools Children’s Choir is made up of singers ages 9 to 11, with 11 girls and three boys. Along with the Nairobi Girls’ Chorale, they will meet young singers in three more West Coast choirs: ■ The Spectrum Vocal Performance Ensemble from
Gig Harbor. ■ The Bellevue Girlchoir from King County. ■ The All Saints Youth Chamber Choir from Pasadena, Calif. The vocalists in these groups range from elementary through high school ages.
Amassed voices At the concert, each choir will step up for its own set before gathering onstage as a combined choir of more than 100 voices. This festival choir will then perform five songs with guest conductor and composer Juan-Tony Guzman. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Guzman is director of the jazz program at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.

PT performers to help AIDS orphans PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Pianist Lisa Lanza will bring together those she calls “the cream of Port Townsend’s young musicians” for a concert Sunday afternoon. Joining them, she added, will be some of their equally talented elders, all in the name of helping children get to school.
The music of Mozart, Beethoven, Sarasate and Brahms, plus a selection of African and American songs, will pour out Sunday in a concert to benefit a group of orphaned children in Uganda. The players, alongside Lanza, are teenage cellist Madelyn Kowalski, violinist Rinnah Becker, pianist Jack-
son Schott and singer and ukulele player Juniper Dunlap. Also to appear: soprano Sophia Parkhurst and the PT Trio, with clarinet player Paul Becker and Fred Nussbaum on cello. Admission to the 4 p.m. performance at Grace Lutheran Church, 1120 Walker St., is a suggested
donation of $12. Also part of Sunday’s event will be the Grace Players — Jim Espensen, Jeni Little and Don Fristo — and the Yesango Marimba Ensemble. All proceeds from the concert will support 11 children who have lost their parents to the AIDS scourge in Uganda.

PA challenges Even so, there are challenges, West said, in maintaining existing roads and facilities. The city has fallen behind in implementing federally required upgrades for the disabled and install-
ing school walking routes because it has been unable to find partners for these projects, “We have a backlog of 41 projects that have not been funded,” West said. “There are mothers who are very concerned about their kids walking to school on a regular basis, and these projects are very important.” In the future, West said, Port Angeles is looking toward developing projects that “connect major city assets.” This includes downtown waterfront redevelopment, repair of erosion on Ediz
Hook Road and development of Race Street, which West said provides the major link between the downtown area and local parks, including Olympic National Park. Another acute need for the downtown area is to improve signs. “Directional signage in Port Angeles takes many forms but has no consistency,” West said. “An integrated and unified template for directional signage is needed in order to reduce confusion and frustration.” Port Townsend’s King said sidewalk repair is an
important though unexciting aspect of transportation policy.
‘Part of our charm’ “In a lot of places here, the sidewalk starts and stops with no reason,” he said. “Some people say this is part of our charm, but it has become a real problem. “It is possible to fix this and still maintain our local character.”

PA to settle excessive-police-force claim BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The city will pay a Port Angeles man $125,000 to settle a claim last year alleging that Port Angeles police officers used excessive force in catching him after he had reportedly fled from them on a bicycle. The settlement agreement came after a mediation session last Friday between city staff and legal representation for 25-yearold Benjamin James Eastman, City Attorney Bill Bloor said Wednesday.
Eastman initially claimed $425,000 in damages in the Jan. 13, 2012, incident in which Eastman suffered a broken leg after crashing his bicycle following a brief pursuit involving several police officers, according to police reports of the incident. Bloor said city staff felt the $125,000 settlement was the best route, though the city has denied the use of excessive force. “I think both sides recognized that if they could avoid a lawsuit, that would be desirable,” said Bloor, adding that the claim filed against
the city eventually could have led to a lawsuit. City Council members approved the settlement unanimously at their regular meeting Tuesday night after holding an executive session to discuss multiple legal matters, including the settlement itself.
Struck by Taser Eastman had alleged that police used excessive force when using an electronic stun gun on him while trying to apprehend him in the early morning hours of Jan. 13, 2012, near the inter-
section of Lincoln and Fifth streets. According to police reports of the incident, Police Sgt. Jesse Winfield fired his Taser at Eastman from Winfield’s patrol car and struck Eastman while he was reportedly attempting to elude officers. “When the darts from my Taser struck Eastman in the left shoulder and lower back, he lost control of his bicycle and crashed,” Winfield wrote in his narrative of the incident. Eastman suffered a broken leg because of the crash and was transported to
Olympic Medical Center for treatment. Eastman initially was cited for obstructing a public servant, a gross misdemeanor, though the case was dismissed in Clallam County District Court in May 2012, according to court records. The city will pay $100,000 of the settlement amount out of $150,000 the city set aside for 2013 for handling damage claims, city Chief Financial Officer Byron Olson said, while the remaining $25,000 will be paid for by the Washington Cities Insurance Authority, a statewide insurance pool that
manages policies for 125 cities, including Port Angeles. In a Wednesday interview, Police Chief Terry Gallagher said the officers were well within their rights to pursue Eastman, though he declined to say whether he thought using the Taser was appropriate until the legal case is completely closed. It’s not uncommon for officers to stop people riding bicycles without helmets or lights, especially if it’s dark outside, Gallagher said, adding that officers typically attempt to approach people in those circumstances.

Death and Memorial Notice BARBARA DARNER July 12, 1945 May 10, 2013 Dearly loved Port Angeles resident Barbara Darner passed away unexpectedly the evening of Friday, May 10, at her home. Born in Merkel, Texas, on July 12, 1945, Barbara spent her youth in Borger, Texas; Idaho Falls, Idaho; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Denver, Colorado, where she graduated from Westminster High School. Soon after graduation, she moved to San Diego, California, to attend community college and later settled from 1970 to 1989 in Boise, Idaho, where she worked for Mountain Bell/Qwest. In 1989, she moved to Port Angeles and worked for the city and for Bank of America on Eighth Street until she started her own eBay store of collectibles. Her Texas family heritage fostered her love of the South, sweet tea and
Mrs. Darner good manners. She was especially fond of New Orleans and its culture. She was both a history and mystery buff, loved to listen to “A Prairie Home Companion” on the radio, played the piano and enjoyed country music, bluegrass, Cajun and jazz. She was blessed with a wonderfully clever sense of humor, a delightful and remarkable laugh, and the perfect nose.
Barbara embodied the definition of class and was a true beauty inside and out. Her kindness and respect for others was reflected in everything she did, and her love spanned the globe to include mission work in Uganda for people very dear to her. She was a giving, thoughtful mother and wife, and was adored by friends and acquaintances alike. She is now reunited with her loving father, Grady Ray Newton, who preceded her in passing on December 24, 1994. Barbara is survived by her mother, Ruby Fay Newton of Amarillo Texas; sister Carolyn McCurdy and her family; daughter Cari Darner; son Zane Darner; and husband of 36 years Don Darner. Services will be held Saturday, May 25, at 1 p.m. at the Church of Christ, 1233 East Front Street, Port Angeles, where she worshiped on Sundays and will be dearly missed.
Briefly . . . GMO awareness rally slated in PA at First, Front PORT ANGELES — A rally to raise awareness of the health risks of genetically modified organisms in food is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. Saturday where First and Front streets join at Golf Course Road. GMOs are the result of genetic engineering, which often includes the splicing of genes from different organisms into crops so they can better withstand high doses of herbicides and pesticides, their foes say. “Complete human health studies were never conducted before these patented processes and cropping practices were implemented nationwide,” said Beverly Goldie, who is organizing the rally on behalf of the Sequim-based GMO Awareness Group. The awareness rally is part of a worldwide day of action called “March Against Monsanto,” which includes similar rallies in more than 200 U.S. cities and around the world. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not currently require safety assessments and does not review all genetically engineered products entering the market, Goldie said. Washington voters will have the chance to be the first U.S. state to pass a GMO-labeling law when Initiative 522 appears on the November ballot. Port Townsend residents who wish to participate can meet at the Haines Street Transit Center to organize a carpool. The caravan will depart Port Townsend at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. For information, contact Goldie at 360-460-4281 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The inspirational Barack Obama PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA gave two commencement addresses in one to graduates of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., last weekend. It would be easy for this conservative to critique the political and social elements of his speech. Instead, I choose to focus on the inspira- Cal tional part. Thomas The president struck the right note at the historically all-male college. AfricanAmerican men in America need more role models and encouragement to counter the reality, reinforced by much of the media, of too much failure, crime, imprisonment, out-of-wedlock births, a disproportionate abortion rate and other social maladies affecting many in the black community. The president underscored values any conservative could embrace when he spoke of the college’s objective of producing “good men, strong men, upright men” who will “better themselves so they could help others do the same.” He added: “In troubled neighborhoods all across this country — many of them heavily African-American — too few of our citizens have role models to guide them.” They do, but too often they are the wrong role models.
Only an African-American man could say what the president said to these young AfricanAmerican men. In this, he repeated what comedian Bill Cosby has been saying for years about personal responsibility and accountability — while taking heat from some in the black community. The president challenged the graduates to think beyond what their degree could do for them: “It betrays a poverty of ambition if all you think about is what goods you can buy instead of what good you can do.” Given the size of government and especially welfare programs, the president’s statement “nobody is going to give you anything that you have not earned” rings a little hollow, but the ideal he stressed is worthy of praise. The president spoke of previous generations who overcame hardships worse than theirs: “And if they overcame them, you can overcome them, too.” In the most poignant moment in the speech, the president said he wished he “had had a father who was not only present, but involved.” In too many African-American homes, there is neither. He said because he didn’t know his father, he has tried to be a good husband and father to his wife and daughters. “I want to break that cycle where a father is not at home — where a father is not helping to raise that son or daughter. “I want to be a better father, a better husband, a better man.” As a husband and father, he is
graduates to “be a good role model, set a good example for that young brother coming up.” He went on: “If you know somebody who’s not on point, go back and bring that brother along — those who’ve been left behind, who haven’t had the same opportunities we have. . . . “You’ve got to be engaged on the barbershops, on the basketball court, at church, spend time and energy to give people opportunities and a chance. “Pull them up, expose them, support their dreams. Don’t put them down.” Beyond the rhetoric, the president acts as if these ideals can best be advanced by government, but even he seemed to acknowledge there is something more powerful than what happens in Washington, D.C. It is what happens inside an individual. The values the president stressed are, or once were considered to be, American values. They are needed most, not only where people live in poverty, but among those who suffer from a poverty of spirit.

Another Memorial Day in endless war IN A REMARKABLE but little-noticed oversight hearing last week, the Senate Armed Services Committee looked at “The Law of Armed Conflict, the Use of Military Force, and the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force.” The Authorization for Use Amy of Military Goodman Force, or AUMF, is the act passed by Congress on Sept. 14, 2001, three days after the alQaida attacks on the United States. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, opened his questioning of the military officials before him by stating: “Gentlemen, I’ve only been here five months, but this is the most astounding and most astoundingly disturbing hearing that I’ve been to since I’ve been here. You guys have essentially rewritten the Constitution here today.” King’s statement followed the questioning by longtime South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who recently
pushed to have the Boston bombing suspect — a U.S. citizen accused of a violent crime on U.S. soil — named an “enemy combatant,” denying him his constitutional rights. Graham enjoyed unanimous agreement from the panelists to his series of questions: “Do you agree with me that when it comes to international terrorism, we’re talking about a worldwide struggle?” “Would you agree with me the battlefield is wherever the enemy chooses to make it?” “And it could be anyplace on the planet, and we have to be aware and able to act.” The message was clear from the Pentagon: The world is a battlefield. The AUMF reads, in part, “the president is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.” Only one member of Congress

voted against that 2001 bill. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said from the floor of the House of Representatives: “I am convinced that military action will not prevent further acts of international terrorism against the United States. . . . Some of us must urge the use of restraint . . . and think through the implications of our actions today, so this does not spiral out of control.” Clearly, Sen. Angus King thinks things have spiraled out of control. As does journalist Jeremy Scahill, whose new book, Dirty Wars, is subtitled, “The World Is a Battlefield.” Scahill told me: “The concept of ‘The World Is a Battlefield’ actually is . . . a military doctrine called ‘Operational Preparation of the Battlespace,’ which views the world as a battlefield. “[If] the military predicts that conflicts are likely or that war is a possibility, [it] can forwarddeploy troops to those countries to prepare the battlefield. And under both Bush and Obama, the world has been declared the battlefield.” His film “Dirty Wars,” based on the book and directed by Rich-
ard Rowley, opens in theaters nationally this June. Close to 12 years later, the AUMF remains in force, giving the Obama administration and the Pentagon carte blanche to wage war, to occupy nations, to kill people with drone “signature strikes,” based not on guilt but on a remote analysis of a suspect’s “patterns of life.” As these wars become increasingly hidden, it becomes even more important for journalists to go to where the silence is, to hold those in power accountable. Which is why the Obama administration seems to be waging low-intensity warfare on journalists at home, with dragnet surveillance of reporters to uncover protected sources and targeting of whistle-blowers with unprecedented use of the espionage act. More than 100 prisoners at the U.S. base on Guantanamo are engaged in a life-threatening hunger strike. Most of them have never been charged and are cleared for release, but remain in that American gulag, with no hope, no change. Memorial Day, while for many is not much more than a threeday weekend, will be marked by many solemn ceremonies.

At the time of this writing, the most recent U.S. deaths in Afghanistan were two soldiers from the Pacific island of Guam, Sgt. Eugene M. Aguon, 23, and Spc. Dwayne W. Flores, 22, killed by a so-called improvised explosive device May 16. Unreported by the Pentagon are the hundreds of soldier and veteran suicides, which now account for more deaths than combat. The backlog at Veterans Affairs, as of May 20, was more than 873,000 benefits claims pending, 584,000 of which were pending for more than 125 days.

Sekiu open to halibut EVERY WEEKEND IS a big weekend this time of year. Especially during this Lee month, due to Horton what Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim calls the “short and fierce” halibut season. “There are such little windows, and so wise anglers take advantage of them,” Menkal said. This coming weekend, however, is a significant fishing weekend of the year, especially for halibut. This isn’t the last week to fish for those massive, ugly, delicious fish, but this weekend might be the apex of the halibut fishery. The season begins to wind down in most marine areas, and everything after this is gravy. It is also a holiday weekend, and with Memorial Day comes the Port Angeles Salmon Club’s annual halibut derby. Additionally, Marine Area 5 (Sekiu) — the only area on the North Olympic Peninsula yet to open to halibut fishing — finally begins it halibut season today. After watching as the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and then the northern coast of the Pacific Ocean, open to halibut fishing earlier this month, Sekiu finally gets its chance. Marine Area 5 was the hardest hit by the reduced halibut seasons throughout the Strait, losing nine days of the popular fishery. Sekiu is open today through Sunday, then Thursday, May 30, though Saturday, June 1. The season concludes with a one-day reopening on Saturday, June 8. Last year, the Marine Area 5 halibut fishery also began during Memorial Day weekend, and then was open Thursdays through Saturdays through June 23. Gary Ryan of Van Riper’s Resort (360-963-2334) in Sekiu said the conditions for this opener might not be optimum due to minus tides. “The more minus tides, the more current,” Ryan said. And more current makes it difficult for anglers to keep their bait near the bottom of the Strait, where the halibut hang out. That doesn’t mean anglers will sit at home and wait for better tides. “It’s the best we got,” Ryan said. “In a short season like this, you have to make hay when it rains.” Ryan added that anglers who are out during the slack tides should find some good success. Even with the less than favorable tides, Sekiu is a nice spot for halibut, because, as Ryan notes, there is more halibut in the western portion of the Strait.
Neah Bay producing Marine Area 4 (Neah Bay) takes a break from the halibut fishery this weekend before its final hurrah Thursday, May 30, and Saturday, June 1. That is, if enough quota remains. Neah Bay wasn’t as busy last weekend as it was the previous weekend, when it had the benefit of being the only halibut fishery open on the Peninsula. But anglers who made their way west were rewarded. “The fishing is so good out here, that almost everybody catches their limit,” said Dawn Lawrence of Big Salmon Resort (360-645-2374) in Neah Bay. Menkal echoed this sentiment, saying that of the people he’s talked to who went to Neah Bay last week, “Everybody got their fish.” With that kind of success, the question becomes: Will the Neah Bay halibut fishery even be open next weekend? “We’re crossing our fingers,” Lawrence said.

TACOMA — Yes, this is state. But, Sequim and Port Angeles enter the 2A track and field state championship meet at Mount Tahoma Stadium today with plenty of big-meet experience. The championships continue through Saturday. For starters, they face strong competition within the Olympic League, which had five boys teams and four girls teams finish in the top 10 at the Tri-District meet. The tri-districts weren’t a cakewalk, either. “We’re in a very tough district; but the flipside is that if you can get through a tough district, you have a chance [to medal at state],” Sequim coach Brad Moore said. Port Angeles girls coach Bill Tiderman said the Roughriders competed at many “huge invitationals” so they could face topnotch competition and get expe-

State rience performing in front of large groups of spectators. The objective, or at least part of it, was to lessen the nerves at the state meet. “I don’t think they’re afraid of the other kids; they’re nervous because they’re at state,” Tiderman said, adding that some nerves are fine because most of
the kids at state are feeling them to some degree. Moore said that there is also a lot of enthusiasm. “I think we have a number of kids who have an excellent chance of coming home with a medal,” Moore said. “Any time you’re in that position, you have to be excited.” Moore’s optimism is particularly high for senior Jayson Brocklesby, who will compete in
two individual events: the 400meter dash and the high jump. “He’s one of four guys who can win [the high jump]. There’s only two guys who have gone 6-foot-6 this year, and he’s been one of them,” Moore said. “If you run [the 400] under 50 [seconds], you’re going to be on the medal stand. Where he’s going to be on the medal stand, I’m not sure.” TURN
PA boys golf takes 4th in state Chimacum boys tie for 6th in 1A PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
UNIVERSITY PLACE — The Port Angeles boys golf team fell just short of its goal of finishing in the top three at state. The Roughriders, though, did finish a best-ever fourth in coach Mark Mitrovich’s 27 years at Port Angeles. Chimacum’s boys, mean-
while, tied for sixth place in the 1A championships. Senior Joe Barnes of Port Angeles, a two-time Olympic League MVP, finished in a tie for 15th place to pace the Riders while Garrett Payton tied for 25th and sophomore Alex Atwell tied for 29th. Austin Underwood and Micah Needham missed the first-day cut for Wednesday’s final round at Chambers Bay. Dana Fox of Port Angeles, meanwhile, had the top finish
for a 2A golfer as she tied for 14th place in the girls state meet at The Classic Golf Club in Spanaway. The Roughrider boys finished with a final team score of 52.5, just nudging out Bellingham (52) for fourth place by half a point. Last year the Riders missed fourth place by half a point. Hockinson, which had four players finish in the top 18, easily won the team title with 119
points, followed by W.F. West with 88 and Clarkston with 68.5. Nine teams were eligible for team points with at least two golfers from each school advancing to the finals on the second day. Ephrata’s Aaron Whalen won the individual title by five strokes, scoring 71 the first day and 69 the second day for the 36 holes. TURN
PT mountain bike team wins state Killer Whales qualify their entire team for nationals PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
WASHOUGAL — The Olympic Mountain Bike Team of Jefferson County, the Killer Whales, ended its second regular season with a bang at the state championships. The high school team, composed mostly of Port Townsend athletes, ended up with six state champions, three girls and three boys, and five of those also
were overall points winners on the state course at Washougal on Sunday. “The kids have had an amazing season in only their second year,” coach Doug Ross said. “All of the kids qualified for nationals.” The state championship was a USA Cycling qualifying race for USA Cycling Cross Country Mountain Biking Nationals scheduled for Bear Creek, Pa., in July. The Killer Whales have been on a roll recently, having captured first place overall at each of the past three regular-season
races, setting the stage at state. The North Olympic Peninsula team dominated the other 16 teams at state, winning six state championships and five overall points titles, and sending racers — often more than one — to the podium in every group. No other rider was more dominant than Cassie Ross, who ended the regular season on a perfect note. She won the girls varsity title, completing a sweep by winning every one of her races this season. Other girls state winners were Mazy Braden in the junior
varsity category and Annalise Rubida in intermediate. Also placing in state for the girls were Camille Ottaway, third in intermediate, while Riley Fukano was third and Sage Brennan fourth in the beginner category. Girls overall points winners were Cassie Ross for varsity and Ottaway for intermediate. Killer Whales boys winning state titles were Luca Freier in junior varsity, Andy Hull in intermediate and beginner Groves Moore. TURN

Sarkisian top-paid employee THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — College coaches are the top-paid state employees in Washington, according to a list recently released by the state Office of Financial Management. University of Washington football coach Steve Sarkisian earned $2.7 million last year, followed by Washington State University football coach Mike Leach at $2.3 million. Third on the list is UW basket-
ball coach Lorenzo Romar at $1.35 million, and fourth is WSU coach Ken Bone at $855,000. Coaches are paid from athletic department revenue, such as ticket sales and television rights or gifts, not taxpayer funds, The Olympian reported. The first non-coach is fifth on the list — Washington State University President Elson Floyd at $625,000, and sixth is UW president Michael Young at $563,000.

Meanwhile, Tupper’s events, the 1,600 and 3,200, are such long races that it’s harder to predict who will medal. Previous marks are less significant. “Kyle’s one of the stronger runners in the state,” Tiderman said. Like Suess, Nordberg and Lovgren are competing in events stacked with talent. However, both are coming off personal records at the tri-district meet, and are set up to improve those marks this week. In fact, Tiderman said that all of Port Angeles’ state participants have set personal records over the last two or three weeks. “Everybody for us has been improving,” he said. “We’re in what we call the peak zone.”

In the largest field with The Killer whales — 31 riders, intermediate fueled by sponsor Bob’s
Bagels, and riding bikes primarily purchased from and tuned by sponsors The Broken Spoke and PT Cyclery — rode the season through mud, rocks, dust and bumps to a podium finish in every race. High school mountain biking racers compete in the Washington Student League, which is sponsored by Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance. There are four categories for both boys and girls. Each rider is placed in a category based on race experience and overall placing from previous races. Depending on category, race distances range from 4 to 20 miles. OMBT did not have a
middle school team this year but plans are in the works for such a team next year. Even the Killer Whales coaches had a chance to shine at state. Assistant coach Christian Young raced in the coaches race on a non-suspension single-speed bike and handily beat all competitors except one, a former teammate from his racing days. The two raced up the hill to the finish, clasped hands, and happily tied. In only their second year, OMBT director Doug Ross credits the Killer Whales’ success to the tremendous support from coaches, families and teammates encour-
aging each other. “It starts at home, is enhanced by coaches who have a passion for cycling, is supported by our community’s trails and resources, and the trickle-down effect leads to great things for kids,” Ross said. OMBT coaches are all volunteers, including Doug Ross, Young, Dash TudhopeLocklear, Davis Fogerty, Elizabeth Salvo, Paul Hershberger, Bob Larson and Garth Gourley. Ross gives special recognition to Young, a former Washington state mountain bike and cyclo-cross champion, for sharing his passion with the team. Next up for the Killer Whales is the nationals, but
the team is discussing whether or not it can finance the trip or to choose a closer regional race instead. Many teammates are considering pursuing other cycling disciplines during the summer such as road racing and cyclo-cross. The team will have fundraising events such as hours of pedaling on stationary trainers outside of The Broken Spoke in Port Townsend. Fourteen of OMBT’s 20 riders were new to competitive mountain biking this year, and there are no seniors, so the Killer Whales are looking for continued domination in the years to come.

CHICAGO — Brian Urlacher wasn’t sure how dominant he could be any longer, so he’s calling it a career after 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears. And what a career it was: —Eight Pro Bowl seasons —Defensive Player of the Year in 2005 —A trip to the Super Bowl as 2006 NFC champion. And now, it’s over. The eight-time Pro Bowler announced his retirement through social media accounts Wednesday. “After spending a lot of time this spring thinking about my NFL future, I have made a decision to

retire,” Urlacher said in a statement. “Although I could continue playing, I’m not sure I would bring a level of performance or passion that’s up to my standards. When considering this, along with the fact that I could retire after a 13-year career wearing only one jersey for such a storied franchise, my decision became pretty clear. “I want to thank all of the people in my life that have helped me along the way. I will miss my teammates, my coaches and the great Bears fans. I’m proud to say that I gave all of you everything I had every time I took the field. I will miss this great game, but I leave it with no regrets.” Urlacher was the face of
the Bears, and he ranks among the best middle linebackers to suit up for a franchise with an impressive list that includes Hall of Famers Bill George, Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary. In March, Urlacher and the Bears were unable to reach a contract agreement and he became a free agent. “In the pantheon of Bears, Brian has earned his place alongside Halas, Grange, Nagurski, Ditka, Payton — and yes, Bill George, Butkus and Singletary,” Bears chairman George McCaskey said. “We congratulate Brian on a brilliant career and he will continue to be a welcomed member of the Bears Family in retirement.”
