State probing PA city pacts, ex-officials Bridges contracts among papers sought; ‘unfounded,’ ex-mayor says By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The state Auditor’s Office is investigating a compliant filed against the city of Port Angeles. The anonymous complaint
asserts potential conflicts of interests and issues regarding contracts and travel expenses, according to an e-mail to the city from Kim Hurley, manager of special investigations for the Auditor’s Office. Hurley, in the November
e-mail, requested documents regarding a slew of topics, including some recent major construction projects. They are: ■ Contracts with Exeltech Consulting Inc. ■ Contracts for construction of the Eighth Street bridges and Dry Creek bridge. ■ Acquisition of property for The Gateway transit center. ■ Travel expenses for former
Mayor Karen Rogers and former City Manager Mark Madsen. ■ Payments to Fred Hill Materials, The Remediators Inc., Capacity Provisioning Inc., Clallam Business Incubator and Advanced Composite Technologies Inc. City Manager Kent Myers said two Auditor’s Office employees retrieved documents from City Hall on Dec. 13 in response to the complaint.
Hurley’s e-mail didn’t say specifically what the complaint alleges. Mindy Chambers, Auditor’s Office spokeswoman, said she could not comment until the investigation is completed. Myers said he has no “idea what the basis of it is.” “I think that our records are in order,” he added. Turn

It’s just another day on the job By Tom Callis

Cashier Trina Cochran stands behind the counter with Santa headwear at the Portside Texaco gas station in Port Angeles on Christmas Day.
While working a cash register Christmas morning, Trina Cochran saw no reason to have a case of the bah-humbugs. Wearing a Santa hat and a smile, she didn’t appear to lack an ounce of holiday spirit during her shift at the Portside Texaco gas station in Port Angeles.
But why work on one of the few days meant for relaxation? “Someone’s got to do it,” Cochran, 29, responded in a matter-of-fact tone. That nonchalant attitude toward forgoing a bit of leisure for labor on the holiday wasn’t hers alone. Other North Olympic Peninsula residents responsible for keeping the economy chugging along for one more day after weeks of pre-Christmas spending shared a similar outlook. KC Kiesling, manager of Port Angeles’ Royal Victorian Motel, said she didn’t mind working during the holiday; she was just happy to have a job. “It’s not so bad,” said the 55-year-old South Korean immigrant.
Espressos are still needed on Christmas Day, as Steven Canepa, a barista at the Veela Cafe in Port Angeles, can attest.
“Why not enjoy working?” she added. For others without local family ties or a tradition celebrating the holiday, working Christmas seemed like the right thing to do. Julie Mason, a bartender at Sirens Pub in Port Townsend, said she opted to work Christmas because unlike some of her coworkers, most of her family is on the other side of the country. “My family is back in Virginia, so I thought I might help out some other coworkers who may have some family here,” said Mason, 30. Steven Canepa, a barista at the Veela Cafe in Port Angeles, said he volunteered to work because, as a Jehovah’s Witness, he grew up not celebrating holidays. Canepa, 20, said he had a few customers by 9 a.m. but expected a fairly laidback day. Turn
How U.S. law blocked run for Jefferson sheriff Federal act kept state trooper from attempt at county office By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News CHIMACUM — Last July, after 37 years in law enforcement including the last 24 with the State Patrol, Sgt. Ken Przygocki was just seven months away from retirement.
Instead of ending his career, the Chimacum resident wanted to run for Jefferson County sheriff. Przygocki (pronounced Shegusski), 59, certainly felt that he was qualified. Too bad. *Plus with every purchase $250 will be donated in your name to one or all of the following charities:

Spider-Man actor walking after surgery THE STUNT ACTOR who fell 30 feet while playing Spider-Man on Broadway is walking again, and his father said Saturday that he can’t wait to return to the role despite injuries that have him confined to the intensive-care unit. Christopher Tierney walked Friday for the first time since his fall during Monday’s performance of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” and is spending Christmas with his mother and brother in the hospital while recovering from back surgery, Tim Tierney told The Associated Press. Julie Taymor, the director and co-writer of the $65 million production, visited the injured actor in the hospital Christmas Eve, Tim Tierney said. The show — the most expensive ever on Broadway — has been plagued by technical glitches, money woes and
three other injuries, including a concussion and two broken wrists. Tim Tierney said he believes his son will regain close to full mobility after recovering from a roster of injuries that included a hairline skull fracture, four broken ribs, a bruised lung, internal bleeding and cracks in three lumbar vertebrae. Christopher Tierney will remain in the intensive care unit until at least Monday, then stay in New York City for rehabilitation. The actor’s plunge from a ledge into a stage pit, despite a safety harness that should have prevented the spill, was not caused by equipment failure, Tim Tierney said. State Department of Labor officials have said the cause is still under investigation, and the Actors’ Equity Association union has said the fall was caused by human error.
Palin buys home Bristol Palin has bought a five-bedroom home in Pinal County
south of Phoenix. Paperwork showed the daughter of Sarah Palin is the sole purchaser of the house in the Palin town of Maricopa, Ariz. She bought it for $172,000 from a North Dakota couple. It’s not clear if Bristol Palin will be a seasonal visitor or permanent resident at the home, in a development called Cobblestone Farms. According to real estate websites, the residence is a two-level, brown stucco house with a tile roof, a landscaped front and back yard, and access to a community pool. The Arizona Republic reported that the 3,900-square-foot home was built in 2006 and was bought for a little under $330,000 at the time. It has 2½ baths and a three-car garage, and Bristol Palin closed on the home earlier this month.

SALLY GOODRICH, 65, who through the Peter M. Goodrich Memorial Foundation helped build one school and support two other schools and an orphanage in Afghanistan, died of ovarian cancer Dec. 18 at her home in Bennington, Vt., her husband said. Just three months after losing her son Peter, 33, on Sept. 11, 2001, aboard United Airlines Flight Ms. 175 — the Goodrich second plane in 2005 to crash into the World Trade Center — Sally Goodrich received a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. For three years, through chemotherapy, grief for her son and thoughts of suicide, Ms. Goodrich fought depression and continued to work as a remedial reading teacher and program coordinator for at-risk children in the North Adams, Vt., school system.

Then, in August 2004, an e-mail from a friend of Peter’s arrived from Afghanistan. Maj. Rush Filson, a Marine, asked if Ms. Goodrich and her husband, Donald, could collect school supplies for children in a village southeast of Kabul. “That was the beginning,” Ms. Goodrich later told The Boston Globe. “I call it the moment of grace. I knew Peter would have responded to that e-mail; I knew I had to in his name. For the first time, I felt Peter’s spirit back in my life.” With donations from friends, neighbors, schoolchildren, local clubs, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Goodrich Foundation has so far raised more than $1 million, her husband said.

TODAY IS SUNDAY, Dec. 26, the 360th day of 2010. There are five days left in the year. The sevenday African-American holiday Kwanzaa begins today. This is Boxing Day. Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Dec. 26, 1799, former President George Washington was eulogized by Col. Henry Lee as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” On this date: ■ In 1776, the British suffered a major defeat in the Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. ■ In 1908, Jack Johnson became the first African-American boxer to win the world heavy-
weight championship as he defeated Canadian Tommy Burns in Sydney. ■ In 1910, the London Palladium, Britain’s famous variety theater, first opened. ■ In 1941, Winston Churchill became the first British prime minister to address a joint meeting of the U.S. Congress. ■ In 1960, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Green Bay Packers, 17-13, in the NFL Championship game, played at Franklin Field in Philadelphia. ■ In 1972, the 33rd president of the United States, Harry S. Truman, died in Kansas City, Mo., at age 88. ■ In 1980, Iranian television footage was broadcast in the
United States showing a dozen of the American hostages sending messages to their families. ■ In 1990, Nancy Cruzan, the young woman in an irreversible vegetative state whose case led to a U.S. Supreme Court decision on the right to die, died at a Missouri hospital. ■ In 2004, some 230,000 people, mostly in southern Asia, were killed by a tsunami triggered by the world’s most powerful earthquake in 40 years beneath the Indian Ocean. ■ In 2006, former President Gerald R. Ford died in Rancho Mirage, Calif., at age 93. ■ Ten years ago: Michael McDermott, an employee at an Internet firm in Wakefield, Mass., shot and killed seven co-workers.
McDermott was later convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole. ■ Five years ago: Survivors wept and prayed beside mass graves and at beachside memorials in Indonesia, marking one year since earthquake-churned walls of water crashed ashore in a dozen nations, sweeping away hundreds of thousands of lives. ■ One year ago: Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-yearold Nigerian man who claimed to have ties to al-Qaida, was charged with trying to destroy a Detroitbound airliner Christmas Day. Buddhist monks chanted on white-sanded beaches in Thailand, and thousands prayed at mosques in Indonesia to mark the fifth anniversary of the Asian tsunami.

Briefly: World Top U.S.-NATO commander visits troops MARJAH, Afghanistan — The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan crisscrossed the country Saturday, making a Christmas visit to coalition troops at some of the main battlefronts in a show of appreciation and support in the 10th year of the war against the Taliban. Gen. David Petraeus started his visit by traveling in a C-130 cargo plane from the capital, Kabul, to the northern province of Kunduz, telling troops with the U.S. Army’s 1-87, 10th Mountain Division that on this day, there was “no place that [he] would rather be than here” where the “focus of our effort” was. The northern part of the country has seen increased fighting, with the Taliban stepping up their attacks as NATO focuses its sights on the militant movement’s southern strongholds. Petraeus was briefed on the situation in the region by German Maj. Gen. Hans-Werner Fritz, the commander of NATO’s northern regional command. In eastern Afghanistan, where NATO forces are focused on trying to prevent insurgents from slipping in from neighboring Pakistan, one U.S. platoon spent their Christmas as they do almost every other day — in a firefight with insurgents.
Somber Christmas VATICAN CITY — Iraqi Christians celebrated a somber Christmas in a Baghdad cathe-
dral stained with dried blood, while Pope Benedict XVI exhorted Chinese Catholics to stay loyal despite restrictions on them in a holiday address laced with worry for the world’s Christian minorities. Saturday’s grim news seemed to highlight the pope’s concern for his flock’s welfare. In northern Nigeria, attacks on two churches by Muslim sect members claimed six lives, while bombings in central Nigeria, a region plagued by Christian-Muslim violence, killed 32 people, officials said. Eleven people including a priest were injured by a bombing during Christmas Mass in a police chapel in the Philippines, which has the largest Catholic population in Asia.
12 Somalis detained AMSTERDAM — Dutch police have arrested 12 Somali men in the key port city of Rotterdam on suspicion of preparing a terrorist attack, the public prosecutor said Saturday. The men, aged 19 to 48, were detained Friday on a tip from the intelligence services that they were planning an attack shortly in the Netherlands. There was no immediate information on the alleged target, but Rotterdam is Europe’s biggest port and a hub of maritime commerce, with huge oil and gas storage facilities and dozens of massive docks. European officials stepped up security around the holidays this year after a Nigerian man in 2009 left Amsterdam airport Christmas Day and allegedly tried to blow up a plane over Detroit with explosives taped to his underwear.

At least 45 killed in aid center bombing Suicide attack was carried out by a female in Pakistan By Anwarullah Khan The Associated Press
KHAR, Pakistan — A burqaclad female suicide bomber in Pakistan lobbed hand grenades, then detonated her explosive belt among a crowd at an aid center Saturday, killing at least 45 people in militants’ latest strike against the authorities’ control over the key tribal region bordering Afghanistan. Police believed it was the first time Islamic militants have sent a woman to carry out a suicide attack in Pakistan, where the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan against al-Qaida and the Taliban insurgents continues to spill over despite Islamabad’s repeated claims of victory on its side of the porous border. The bomber, dressed in the head-to-toe burqa robes that women commonly wear in Pakistan and Afghanistan, was challenged by police at a checkpoint, officials said. She then charged toward a
group of 300 people lined up outside the food aid distribution center in the town of Khar, tossing two hand grenades before blowing herself up, officials said. The crowd was made up of people who have fled conflicts elsewhere in the area. President Barack Obama condemned the bombing as “outrageous.” In a statement released in Honolulu, where he was spending Christmas, Obama said, “Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Program distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan and to all humanity.” The attack in Khar, the main city in the Bajur region of Pakistan’s northwest, came a day after 150 militants waged pitched gun battles against five security posts in the adjourning Mohmand tribal region to the south. The fighting, which left 11 soldiers and 24 militants dead, was an unusually strong show of strength by insurgents in border country that the military has
twice claimed to have cleaned of militants. Helicopter gunships backed by artillery continued the battle Saturday, pounding enemy hideouts and killing another 40 militants, said Amjad Ali Khan, the top government official in Mohmand. The tribal regions are of major concern to the U.S. because they have been safe havens for militants fighting NATO and American troops across the border in Afghanistan. The U.S. has long pressured Pakistan to clear the tribal belt of the insurgents. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for Saturday’s suicide attack in Khar through its spokesman, Azam Tariq. The spokesman suggested the victims may have been targeted because most of them belonged to the Salarzai tribe, which was among the first to set up a militia — known as a lashkar — to fight the Taliban in 2008. Other tribes later formed similar militias to resist the militants. “All anti-Taliban forces — like lashkars, army and security forces — are our target,” he said. “We will strike them whenever we have an opportunity.”
Hundreds of flights canceled in South due to snowstorm By Kristin M. Hall The Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A rare white Christmas in parts of the South was complicating life for some travelers as airlines canceled hundreds of flights, while snow was predicted for the nation’s capital and travel authorities warned of potentially dangerous roads. The National Weather Service said the storm could bring 6 to 10 inches of snow to the Washington region, beginning today. The Weather Service was also forecasting possible snow today for the New York and Boston areas, with overnight temperatures in the 20s and wind gusts up to 30 mph. United and Continental Air-
lines issued a news release Saturday saying that weather conditions would likely force delays and cancellations at their respective hubs at Washington Dulles and Newark Liberty International airports as well as at other Northeastern airports between Saturday and Monday. Airlines spokesman Michael J. Trevino said Saturday evening that he did not have an estimate of the number of cancellations but that the carriers are waiving fees for one-time changes in affected areas. The Carolinas got their first white Christmas in decades as snow began falling Saturday morning in Asheville, N.C., spread to Raleigh by noon and was forecast to stretch to the coast later in the day. The National Weather Service
issued winter storm warnings with forecasts calling for up to 6 inches of snow in central North Carolina with more in the mountains and less on the coast. In South Carolina, forecasts called for rain turning to snow after dark. It’s the first Christmas snow for the Carolinas since 1989, when a foot fell along the coast. For Columbia, S.C., it’s the first significant Christmas snow since weather records were first kept in 1887. In Asheville, the Weather Service said snow fell at the rate of about an inch an hour earlier in the day and mountain roads would be impassable for all but four-wheel-drive vehicles. As much as 10 inches could fall by today, which would break the previous Christmas Day record of 5.4 inches set in 1969.

World: Earthquake, small tsunami hit near Vanuatu
Maintenance crews will inspect a Southwest Airlines jet that made an emergency landing at Oakland International Airport when the pilot received warning of an engine fire. Southwest Airlines spokesman Brad Hawkins said the Los Angeles-bound flight landed safely in Oakland, Calif., minutes after taking off from San Francisco International Airport around 9 p.m. Friday. As the plane was ascending, a warning siren indicated there was a fire in one of the plane’s engines. Hawkins said the pilot shut the engine down and diverted to Oakland. None of the 108 passengers and five crew members aboard was injured.
Authorities said two people have died and one is injured after a man on a snowboard collided with a woman and her daughter on skis at a Wyoming ski area. The Casper Star-Tribune reported that the 22-year-old man and the 5-year-old girl were pronounced dead at a Casper hospital after the collision Friday at the Hogadon Ski Area. The mother has been hospitalized, but her condition and injuries weren’t available. No names have been released. Natrona County Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Sellers said the mother and girl were stopped on a ski run when the snowboarder collided with them.
If only Santa was as good with hot air balloons as with reindeer sleighs. A man in a Santa outfit took a wild ride through Utah skies Christmas Eve when his balloon took off without a pilot. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Santa was tossing candy to kids from the balloon during a Midvalley Elementary School fundraiser when the craft landed too hard and the pilot tumbled out. That left Santa alone, and the lighter balloon shot back into the air. Police Sgt. Torin Chambers said Santa traveled 1.7 miles across Midvale before the craft lost enough air to come down.
A powerful earthquake struck under the sea near Vanuatu early today, generating a small tsunami in the South Pacific. No damage or injuries were immediately reported. The 7.3 magnitude quake struck just after midnight about 140 miles south of Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila. The U.S. Geological Survey said it was about 15 miles below the ocean floor. A tsunami wave measuring about 6 inches was recorded on some coastlines at Vanuatu, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. New Caledonia and Fiji also were warned a tsunami was possible on their coasts, but the warning was canceled about an hour and a half after the temblor.

He was alerted about County Sheriff Bill Benedict suggested Wednesday.

filed for sheriff, he said. That prompted him to approach his superiors to seek the opinion from the Attorney General’s Office, he said. Morris emphatically denied she considered filing a complaint — “absolutely not,” she said. “My suggestion was he look into it because it was conceivable if his agency received federal funds, then the Hatch Act might apply,” Morris said, adding she spoke with an associate of Przygocki’s about the matter. “The Hatch Act came up. I suggested [Przygocki] look into it so it would not turn out to be negative on his part.”
Stuck to account Przygocki stuck to his account, though he wouldn’t give the name of the associate. “My impression came from two different sources, and I believe these people,” he said. Morris was campaign manager for former Port Townsend Police Chief Kristen Anderson when Anderson unsuccessfully ran for county sheriff in 2002. The Hatch Act’s impact on Anderson’s ability to run “did not even come up,” Morris said. “None of us even knew
about the Hatch Act.” Hernandez was undersheriff in March 2009 when county commissioners appointed him to the position held by the retiring Mike Brasfield and was elected to fill out the term in November 2009. Government employees covered under Hatch Act provisions still can be appointed to elected positions. “If I had not gone through the appointment process, I would have had to potentially resign,” Hernandez said. A government employee who violates the Hatch Act can be removed from the position covered by the regulations and “could be debarred from holding another Hatch Act position for up to 18 months,” said Justin Martell of the federal Office of Special Counsel, which investigates Hatch Act violations. But ignorance of the law can lead to a different result. “When there is no evidence of a knowing or willful violation, our office is not likely to seek disciplinary action,” Martell said. Martell said the law covers only partisan elections. Przygocki would have run as an independent but leans toward the Republican Party, Przygocki said.
Congress passed the Hatch Act in 1939 in response to controversies sparked in the 1936 and 1938 campaigns over political donations by federal employees and the misuse of federal funds, Jason Miller said in a 2009 article, “The Unwise and Unconstitutional Hatch Act: Why State and Local Government Employees Should be Free to Run for Public Office,” in the Southern Illinois Law Journal. The law prohibits millions of public employees from running for office, Miller said.
‘Lack of quality’
Przygocki is not sure if he will seek election in four years. “I’m not ready to retire,” Przygocki said. “I love what I do.” State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins said “a fair number” of retired State Patrol officers are now sheriffs, adding that some do not fall under the provisions of the Hatch Act. At the same time, Martell’s office commonly receives requests for advisory opinions and complaints about law enforcement officials for violating the Hatch Act, especially when those in law enforcement run for sheriff. Benedict suggested situations such as Przygocki’s prove the law needs to be changed. “The original intent was to prevent federal employees from using that influence to sway local elections,” Benedict said. “It’s a real mockery now.” Federal legislation is pending to exempt law enforcement agencies from the Hatch Act “just because it’s so confusing and convoluted,” Benedict added.
“At the same time, many elections in this country go uncontested, and communities suffer from a lack of quality candidates.” Martell said a goal of the Hatch Act is to ensure that public employees are politically neutral and don’t exert undue influence on government hiring and policies in their capacity as government employees. “The goal is to prohibit the government from becoming a partisan tool,” he said.

Mystery man’s Christmas legacy Stranger known as John gives $81,000 to churches By Jennifer Jackson
For Peninsula Daily News
1930s, he and his brothers attended Sunday school at First Presbyterian Church. The connection to St. Paul’s is unknown. “There is nothing like this, to receive something you did nothing to attain, that is pure gift,” said Elizabeth Bloch, rector of St. Paul’s. According to Camfield, his brother — born Richard Ernest Camfield but who changed his name to John Richard Ernest — was a loner who was estranged from his family in the last decades of his life. Except for a stint in the Air Force in the 1950s, Richard lived in the family home on Morgan Hill all his life, said Camfield, who referred to his brother as Richard. His brother wrote poetry, mostly about nature, which he had made into a book and peddled at the ferry dock in the ’70s, Camfield said. When their mother developed Alzheimer’s disease, it was Richard who took care of her for eight years until her death at the age of 96, he added.
PORT TOWNSEND — It is an old tale, told since medieval times, of the stranger who comes to the church door on a winter’s night and knocks. Asking for a bite of bread or a place to get in out of the cold, he is welcomed and given food. Then, pulling back the hood of his cloak, the visitor reveals himself to be a person of means who is able to return the charity. It is a story that echoes what happened to Wendell Ankeny, pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church this Christmas. The stranger was an elderly man Ankeny knew as John, who would stop by the church office on Clay Street from time to time. John was thin and stooped, his beard often unshaven, his gray hair sticking out of the watch cap he always wore. Ankeny said he and John knew each other for a couple of years, though John never came to a service. Changing his name
$27,000 check Last Tuesday, Ankeny had another visitor — John’s brother, who delivered a gift from John’s estate to the church. It was a check for $27,000. “It was out of the blue,” Ankeny said. The brother, Tom Camfield, also delivered checks for $27,000 each to two other uptown churches — First Presbyterian and St. Paul’s Episcopal. With the former, Camfield included a letter explaining that back in the
Then Richard lived alone in the house, changing his name and removing any connection with the family name. Other than occasionally seeing him at Safeway, Camfield had no contact with Richard, nor did any of the family, he said. “He became very secretive and hid away from the world,” he said. So when Richard became ill last summer, it was Ankeny who got the call from the hospital. It was the man he knew as John, asking if Ankeny would come and baptize
the funds for a planned addition. Part of any unspecified donation or funds raised is always set aside for mission work, Slater said, including Habitat for Humanity and the food bank. The church also maintains a 10-year relationship with a village in El Salvador, Santa Elena — sending work teams and funds to build houses, a community center and a well — and has a supportive partnership with the Evangelical Seminary in Cairo. “We feel fortunately blessed by this gentleman,” Slater said of the gift. At St. Paul’s, the gift came at a time when the church is expanding its local outreach to people beyond the walls.
This photo of Richard Ernest Camfield was probably taken when he served in the Air Force from 1952 to 1956. A recluse later in life, he dropped his surname, calling himself John Richard Ernest. him. John also asked to become a member of the church. Ankeny fulfilled both of John’s requests, baptizing him in the name he adopted, as well as fulfilling another request — bringing him a chocolate malt from the local drug store. Ankeny visited John the next day, bringing another chocolate malt that John was unable to drink. On the third day, when Ankeny arrived at the hospital, the bed was empty. John died of cancer Aug. 28. He was 79 years old.
“I hastened to get it here before Christmas in case Santa might have some financial shortfalls,” Camfield said. “He wanted to leave that money to those churches.” Said the Rev. Dr. Bob Slater, minister of First Presbyterian Church: “I do believe in Santa” The gifts come with no strings attached, so the churches are free to decide how they want to use the funds. All three churches are in historic buildings uptown that are more than a century-and-a-quarter old.
Use of funds
In his will, he left First Presbyterian is in bequests for the three churches, which Camfield the process of retrofitting delivered last week as early all the lights, Slater said, and also may use some of Christmas presents.
“He has blessed a need that he had no idea about,” Bloch said of John’s bequest.
Second windfall The unexpected gift is the second windfall for Trinity UMC, which nearly closed 12 years ago for lack of members. Since then, it has rebounded with the help of a woman who attended services but would arrive late and leave early. The woman wouldn’t give Ankeny her name, he said, even when he visited her in the hospital. When she died, Ankeny had to track down the relatives and arrange the service. In her will, the woman left her estate, including her Lincoln town car, her piano, all her household possessions and her large collection of hats, to Trinity. The church kept the hats, which people wear in the woman’s memory on Easter and Mother’s Day, but held a garage sale to sell the household items, realizing $30,000 to kickstart the building restoration. That included shoring up the bell tower, which was twisted in an earthquake, and placing a foundation under the unsupported building. Ankeny said it’s up to the church to decide how to use John’s gift but said part of it will probably be used for a mission project and part to finish projects in the building, which opened its door to a stranger. Camfield said people have told him that his brother was a kindly sort at the end of his life and would have liked people to know about his last gifts.
Last summer, parishioners started a weekly soup lunch that is drawing up to three dozen people, mostly working people who need help making ends meet, Deacon Karen Pierce said. The parish had plans to expand and had started raising funds. So when Bloch opened the envelope that Camfield handed her and saw the check, she whooped with joy. “It was like someone had popped a champagne cork in your spirit,” she said. “We had a specific need, and this kicked us over the top. It truly felt miraculous.” Slater said that while First Presbyterian Church has received bequests from people he doesn’t know, they are usually past members who had moved away or were no longer active for health reasons. None he remembers was half as large as John’s gift; ________ all were for a specific use. Bloch said St. Paul’s has Jennifer Jackson, who writes received anonymous gifts in the column Port Townsend Neighthe past but not one of this bor, can be reached at 360-3795688 or email@example.com. size.
Dozens of volunteers deliver holiday meals By Julie McCormick
For Peninsula Daily News
CHIMACUM — They had to split the volunteer shifts in two at the annual free Tri-Area Community Center Christmas Dinner to accommodate the more than 70 people in Jefferson County who wanted to help out. Candy Drollinger signed up early and drew delivery duty, taking 32 grocery bags full of meals to senior and disabled people at the Admiralty Apartments in downtown Port Townsend. The load was light compared with Drollinger’s life right now. “This year has been very difficult,” said the single mother of two adolescent girls.
Drollinger’s partner left her, she’s scrambled for any kind of a job since being laid off as a computer programmer two years ago, and her children are visiting grandparents for the holidays. “This is the first year in 17 years that I haven’t been with family,” she said. “I could sit around and have a pity party or give what I have to give.” Residents trickled down into the vestibule to pick up their meals, and Drollinger delivered a few right to the door. “We can all survive, but it’s nice to save money,” said Doug Hurlburt with a smile, picking up his meal. Back at the community center, longtime volunteer Dell Noack matched up driver names with delivery
lists as the first people began trickling in for their holiday meal. There was a greeter outside with a merry bell and a “Merry Christmas” for each arrival and a greeter at the dining room door. Donna Valaske brought her neighbor Thelma Davis, 79, early to give her a chance to rest before the tables got crowded. Davis is only a week out of the hospital and still recovering from a torn esophagus. “We’re just all by ourselves, little orphans,” she said, beaming. By the time deliveries had been made, the first rush of what coordinator Chris Eagan predicted would be 300 diners had finished, with some lining

Coburn’s Cafe stays in the family From mother to mom, son, PA eatery changes hands By Rob Ollikainen
[Brady] works here, my cousins — so pretty much a family operation still, minus me,” Darla Coburn said. “We’ve had some dear friends that have worked here that are more like family than friends.” As for her future, Darla Coburn will spend a few months traveling through California and Arizona. She plans to return to Port Angeles in the early spring, when she will become a new grandmother, then decide what to do next. “I have no plans, no reservations,” Darla Coburn said. Customers, many of whom are regulars at the cozy eatery, learned of the change in ownership about two weeks ago.
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Coburn’s Cafe regulars had cake with their morning coffee Friday. The Christmas Eve cake was a tribute to 15-year owner Darla Coburn, whose last day was Friday. “Today, I wanted to work with my mom one last time,” she said. Coburn sold the neighborhood restaurant at 824 S. C St. in Port Angeles to her mother, Gloria, and son, Ryan. Ryan Coburn, 28, will run the small family business. “He’s a fantastic cook,” Darla Coburn said. “He’s been here since he was a little kid.” Gloria will help her grandson run the eatery as Home away from home she did her daughter. “It’s like a home away “My niece [Chrelle] from home for a lot of these works here, my other son guys,” Darla Coburn said.
Bob Philpott, one of Coburn’s Cafe’s loyal customers, said Ryan Coburn is more than capable of running the restaurant. “Oh, I think he’ll do a wonderful job,” Philpott said. “He’s been doing so much of it at different times that he knows all facets of the work, and we’ll continue to have lots of people coming here for meals.” Some of the regulars are so familiar with the breakfast and lunch menus that they don’t even need one, Darla Coburn said. “Our customers are even really a part of our family because you see they’re so loyal,” she said. “They come in here every day, some of them — every day. This is their social hour.” Some of the most popular items on the menu are biscuits and gravy, clam chowder and hash browns, which are made from scratch, Darla Colburn said. Everything on the menu, which includes specialty

The small business relies on word-of-mouth advertising, Darla Coburn said. Coburn’s Cafe is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. “Everything will run just
like it did before,” Darla Coburn said. “Nothing’s going to change except for the name on the piece of paper.” Darla Coburn has worked in the restaurant industry since she was 15. She said she will miss the people and the social aspect of the job. She thanked her custom-
ers “for the love and support and friendship through the years.” “It’s been a lot of fun,” she said. “I’m going to miss them a lot.”

OLYMPIA — The state Fish and Wildlife Commission will conduct a public hearing Friday, Jan. 7, on a proposed five-year fishing moratorium for the Elwha River and its tributaries. The hearing is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. in Room 172 on the first floor of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 S.E. Washington St., Olympia, during a two-day meeting of the commission. The panel, which sets policy for the state Department of Fish & Wildlife, is scheduled to make a deci-
sion on the proposed fishing moratorium, which would begin next fall, at its Feb. 4-5 meeting in Olympia. The commission will convene at 8:30 a.m. both days. The proposed rule has stirred concerns about the possible closure of Lake Sutherland, west of Port Angeles. Most of the 125 people at a Dec. 15 hearing in Port Angeles showed support for a fishing moratorium for the river as long as it didn’t include the lake.
Fish & Wildlife is proposing the moratorium for the Elwha River to help protect fish runs during and after removal of the 108foot Elwha Dam and the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam. Dam removal, the focus of a $350 million federal project to restore the 70-mile river’s ecosystem and encourage a return of the waterway’s historic salmon runs, will begin in September and last until March 2014. The proposal — which will be presented to the
commission by Fish & Wildlife Regional Fish Program Manager Ron Warren, who spoke at the Port Angeles meeting — would establish a fishing moratorium on “all fisheries in tributary and mainstream waters across the 321 square miles of the basin from the river mouth near Port Angeles to the headwaters in the Olympic Mountains.” The proposal said that the moratorium “may” also include Lake Sutherland, which is connected to the Elwha River through Indian Creek. After the Port Angeles
meeting, Warren said that he would brief the Fish and Wildlife Commission on the concerns of residents. “They got a voice, and I’m going to carry that voice forward,” Warren said. Warren had said at the Port Angeles meeting that the lake was under consideration for closure to help the anadromous sockeye salmon survive, possibly by breeding with kokanee, which are landlocked sockeye, in the lake. After dam demolition, fish in the two reservoirs will have to adapt to a river

ecosystem, and anadromous fish below the dams will find the lower river less hospitable as waves of sediment blocked behind the dams are washed downstream. Warren said the moratorium will give those populations a better chance of survival by giving them a boost before the dams come down and by protecting them for a few years after demolition.
Puget Sound crabbing At the January meeting, the commission also will discuss Puget Sound crabfishing seasons, with fish managers briefing them on how changes to proposed crab regulations conform to a policy the commission approved in October to expand sport-fishing opportunities for Puget Sound crabbers. The commission is set to vote on proposed crabbing amendments in February. The agenda is at www. wdfw.wa.gov/commission/ meetings.html. A link in the agenda goes to the fishing moratorium proposal. Comments on the proposed fishing moratorium can be submitted to Fish & Wildlife rules coordinator Lori Preuss at lori.preuss@ dfw.wa.gov or at 600 N. Capitol Way, Olympia, WA 98501.

Hospice takes on more, needs more Volunteer organization looks at $280,000 deficit By Diane Urbani de la Paz
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Soon after she moved here, Sue Hynes crossed paths with the woman in whose footsteps she would follow — into a job full of rewards and uncertainty. Twenty years ago, Hynes met Rose Crumb, the founder and director of an organization that helps hundreds of Clallam County families each year while charging nothing for its services. “I was overwhelmed by Rose,” Hynes remembered. She was also mightily impressed by Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, the nonprofit Crumb and a small team established in 1978. Hynes went to work as a nurse for the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe and stayed 16 years. Then, in 2005, her mother developed terminal cancer, and Hynes turned to Volunteer Hospice for help. She wanted her mom, Joanne Schalk, to stay at home, not in a hospital. The hospice helped make that happen. The agency’s nurses and volunteers provided hospice care — comfort and attentiveness to matters both practical and emotional — that gave Hynes precious time with her mother during her last days. “[Volunteer Hospice] allowed me to be the daughter and not the nurse,” she said. Last year, Crumb retired as director of Volunteer
Hospice, and Hynes was chosen as her successor. “I feel so blessed to be in this position,” Hynes said in a recent interview at the Volunteer Hospice office at 540 E. Eighth St. But the post brings with it a worrisome set of circumstances. “It’s a perfect storm,” said Pam Gates, a member of Volunteer Hospice’s board of directors. Clallam County’s population is growing older and needing more hospice services, more people lack health insurance, and the economy is still in the dumps, so Volunteer Hospice’s reserve fund isn’t earning the income it once did. Donations are affected, too.
Using reserves now For the first time, the agency has had to withdraw operating funds from its reserve account, said Bruce Busch, another board member. “Until this year, we always took in more money than we paid out,” he said. The only paid people at Volunteer Hospice are Hynes and the seven nurses, who are on call 24 hours a day to respond to clients’ families’ needs. Their salaries total $315,000; with operating expenses, the agency’s annual budget is $470,000. Volunteer Hospice is anticipating revenue, from bequests and other local donations, of just $190,000 in 2011. So the agency is looking at an estimated deficit of
some $280,000 next year, Busch said. There are no plans, however, to start charging for hospice services. They are wide-ranging and delivered by the seven nurses and more than 100 volunteers: home health care and pain management, delivery and setup of equipment such as special beds, respite care so the patient’s caregiver can take a breather, help with funeral arrangements and support for loved ones who are grieving. Sometimes, a widowed spouse is at a complete loss, Hynes said, and doesn’t know how to keep the household books nor cook meals. Hospice volunteers help with those things, too. “Our mission,” Hynes said, “is to take care of the people in the community,” including those who can’t afford to pay for home health care and other help. Hospice care is patientdriven; insurance doesn’t come into the equation, she added. Yet Volunteer Hospice’s mission cannot be accomplished without support from local residents. So Hynes and the Volunteer Hospice board are hoping to convey a message to their community: We can’t continue without you.
Could cease to exist “In five to seven years, if we don’t have more help,” said board member Ray Weinmann, “we will cease to exist, which would be a tragedy for the community.” “Think about the amount of money Hospice has saved the community over the years,” said Hynes, adding that end-of-life care in hospitals is a large portion of all health care costs in

From left, Volunteer Hospice Director Sue Hynes and board members Bruce Busch and Pam Gates say the nonprofit agency, which provides a wide range of hospice services free of charge, is facing a $280,000 deficit in 2011. this country. Helping people come home for their last days is better all around, she believes. Volunteer Hospice provides services for some 300 families in a year, Hynes noted. “With the uncertainty of health care [coverage] now, there’s going to be a need for more community-based health care,” she said. Volunteer Hospice is not seeking only monetary gifts. The agency also needs people who can share their time. A training for volunteers who work directly with patients is set for February; for those who prefer to work in the Volunteer Hospice office, Hynes provides a less-complex orientation each month or so. Busch, who is on the board’s long-range planning committee, became a volunteer after firsthand experience with Volunteer Hospice. Immediately after he
and his wife, Dottie, moved to Sequim from Rocklin, Calif., six years ago, Dottie was diagnosed with throat cancer. Soon, she needed 24-hour care. Hospice worker Holly Daniel came over to give her foot massages and just to talk. “Dottie adored that,” Busch said. He stayed at his wife’s side, at home, until her death Nov. 10, 2005. Not long after, Busch started volunteering as a bed delivery man for Volunteer Hospice. It helped him to keep busy with the agency that had been there for him and Dottie. “You’ll never have a more difficult time in your life” than when you are saying goodbye to your beloved, Hynes said. Volunteer Hospice is there to provide support and companionship throughout that time. As she enters her second year as director, Hynes
expressed gratitude for the volunteers and for nurses Laura Kinsley, Linda Mellon, Marty Melcher, Paula Richter, Gayla SprattNuffer and Bette Wood. “It takes a special nurse to be a hospice nurse,” Hynes said. Gates added that the Volunteer Hospice business model — which has worked for more than three decades — relies on generosity and caring. “We don’t have a CEO,” she said. “The stockholder is the community.” To find out more about supporting Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, phone the office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays at 360-452-1511, e-mail HOCC@olypen.com or visit www.HospiceofClallam County.org.

Ferrin, who now practices in Jefferson City, Mo., was fined Nov. 19 after pleading guilty to thirddegree theft and attempted criminal liability. He won’t serve jail time. Ferrin, 45, was initially charged with one count of first-degree theft and nine counts of making false statements or concealing information. He was accused of defrauding L&I of $11,538.52 between 2006 and 2008. The state Attorney General’s Office said he billed L&I for appointments that never happened.

Pot holder sales help no-kill shelter By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — This fundraiser is hot. The group — which has grown to six women who routinely get together to create pot holders, pet beds and aprons — started out as two friends trying to raise $500 for a charity they believed in: Peninsula Friends of Animals. Peninsula Friends of Animals is a no-kill shelter that takes in cats and, on a smaller scale, finds foster homes and adopts out dogs as well. Almost four years ago, Lori Miller and Carol Gearey teamed up to make pot holders, sell them for $12 a pair and make a few hundred dollars for a cause they both believe in. “By March or so, we already had over $800,” Miller said of the effort that began in January 2007. “After that, we went to them to see if it was something they were interested in selling more of.” Since then, the two have been joined by Sue Cram, Lynda Larison, Pat Matland and Donna Baxter. Cindy Wingerter, Lenell Savage and Cindy Caldicott also help out but don’t attend the monthly gettogethers.
Once a month, the group compiles kits for the pot holders. Each kit contains a 9-inch fabric square designed top, a coordinating back side, flannel in three colors to create a colorful design on the back side and a border fabric. The women then take the kits home to make as many pot holders as they can in the month. The finished products are taken to holiday bazaars, craft fairs and several locations in Sequim and Port Angeles to sell. Pot holders are available at the Lavender Festival, Paws in the Garden and Sequim’s Open Aire Market. They also can be purchased at the Department of Labor and Industries in Port Angeles, Red Rooster Grocery in Sequim and Hair Trix in Carlsborg. Gearey said that some people even inquire at the door of holiday bazaars if they are there. “Evidently, if the pot holders weren’t there, they weren’t interested,” she said. In the first three years, the group raised more than $40,000 for Peninsula Friends of Animals. This year, the group made an additional $29,000,
Some of the fabric squares used to make pot holders. Miller said. Originally, the group would hold “sew-a-thons” and stitch up the pot holders right in the shop tucked in the barn at Miller’s house. “Now with six of us, it just gets too crowded,” Gearey said. “So now, we make up kits and take them home.” Recently, Gearey branched into creating bags decorated with fabric with a dog print. Although time-intensive,
she has been selling them for $25 a piece. For more information on the Peninsula Friends of Animals, visit www.safe havenpfoa.org or phone 360452-0414. To donate 100 percent cotton fabric or thread to the ongoing pot holder fundraiser, phone Miller at 360461-0348.

Peninsula Daily News for Sunday, December 26, 2010
What matters? Celebrity news ARE YOU READY for 2011? By that I mean, are you ready for Mariah Carey’s twins? To be sure, there will be Mark other topics deserving of Bazer attention next year: A presidential election will start to heat up, 9/11 will have its 10th anniversary, WikiLeaks will publish every e-mail you’ve ever sent . . . But in 2011, nothing or nobody is going to be able to touch Mariah’s twins. Except the photographers stylizing them for the covers of US Weekly, People and In Touch. Get ready for the exclusives about how having children has shown Mariah what’s truly important. Get ready for the eight-page pullout section of babies Octave and Inspire (or whatever their
names end up being) with the Mariah pull-quote: “I want to keep my children out of the public eye.” Get ready for the beach photos the week after delivery of Mariah’s perfectly toned post-pregnancy body. In other words, get ready for wanting to stay as far away as possible from a grocery-store checkout line for much of 2011. Other than Mariah Carey and her husband, the only one to benefit from the birth of her twins will be Peapod. None of this is a knock on Mariah Carey — Lambs, put down your pens! — because right now she should be all about her husband and future family. And when people — and I hesitate to use that word when describing gossip journalists — come asking Mariah about what she cares about most, it’s hard to blame her for answering them. “My taste bud situation is unparalleled,” she recently told TV’s “Extra.” “I don’t know what it is, but
I’m just about fruit for some reason.” Say such a thing to your friend over lunch or post it as your Facebook status and nobody blinks an eye. Say it on national TV, and you sound a bit like a moron. It’s not (completely) her fault a reporter asked her about her wacky pregnancy cravings. There are three types of celebrities who end up on the cover of US Weekly and, hard to believe I’m saying this, its less-classy competitors. You’ve got the Angelina Jolies, Brad Pitts, Jennifer Anistons — major celebrities with actual talent who, for whatever their faults, know better than to want anything to do with the gossip industry. You know the stories about them are untrue, and you want to avoid them. Then you’ve got the D-list celebrities whose only talent is their ability to live terrible lives and who seem to exist because of gossip magazines. People like Kate Gosselin
Mariah Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon make an unspoken deal with the gossip industry: I’ll share everything I do, and thank you for keeping me in the public eye. It’s a win-win for everyone, except 99.9 percent of the country. You know the stories about them are true, and you want to avoid them. And then there is the category Mariah Carey falls into: celebrities who have talent, who are famous for something more than being famous, who are fabulous
and beautiful — and who still show up at the “Extra” studios or the US Weekly editorial offices. Why do they do it? What do they possibly have to gain? They can’t be doing it just for a free family portrait taken by a professional photographer, can they? Don’t they know about the good deals right now at the Sears Portrait Studio? Whatever the reason, the stories about them are usually true, and you usually want to avoid them. But . . . it’s hard. Because OMG! Mariah’s having twins! ________ Mark Bazer is a humorist who hosts “The Interview Show,” a Chicago-based talk show available at www.huffingtonpost.com.

What is your personal highlight for 2010?

“I started my senior year at high school. It’s exciting to know that I’m almost done. This year is special. Also, I’ve enjoyed being able to spend time with my family.”
“For me, a highlight for 2010 is the very memorable trip we took to the southern Utah desert last spring. Plus, the romance between my wife and I continues unabated.”
“My highlight is going back to school to finish my degree in human development online at WSU. After 30 years, it is very hard, but I like it.”
Retired construction worker Neah Bay
“I was the cover woman in the PDN’s Peninsula Woman [magazine]. I was featured with all my bubbles. All year, people recognized me as the ‘Bubble Lady.’ Very positive experience.”
“Turning 50. When I was a lot younger, I never thought I’d reach that age. I promised myself that at 50, I would buy a brand-new car. Instead, I bought a 75-yearold home.”
“Baby No. 4 in April. We named him Fletcher. That was our biggest highlight of the year, Also, we celebrated our 10th anniversary.”
“We went on a vacation to California, specifically to Sacramento to see relatives. We drove down. We saw a lot of nice things. It was a good vacation just to get away.”
“It started out on a low with my house burning down last January. But the tribe has helped me out, and I’m back in a home. I’ve learned there is a good side to everything.”
Peninsula Voices ‘Bogus’ closure I’m responding to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s proposed five-year Elwha River fishing moratorium, including closure of Lake Sutherland [as part of the removal of the two Elwha River dams]. Sutherland should not be included in the moratorium. I know it’s in the drainage, but it’s hardly consequential in overall significance. I’m a native Washingtonian and a retired fishery biologist. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Oregon State University in fish and game management. The last 25 years of my career were spent managing trout and kokanee fisheries in California. I supervised more than 200 lakes and streams in 12 California counties. I’m offering my expert opinion regarding the closing of Lake Sutherland: It’s bogus. The proposed Elwha watershed closure has a number of serious flaws:
■ There’s no baseline of data on numbers and species of fish in the system now. ■ There are no target numbers of fish or species to be reached in the recovery plan. Without numbers, one cannot know when the objective is reached. Sample surveys are not very accurate when expanded. ■ There’s no proposed compensation for the loss of Lake Sutherland. Serious losses will hit small businesses selling tackle, bait and related items. There will certainly be a decline in the sale of fishing licenses. ■ There’s no way to mitigate for this existing fine fishery in Sutherland with hypothetical numbers many years from now in the river and saltwater. We are being bullied by the very people who are supposed to represent us and maintain and improve fishing for the sportsmen. In my opinion, Lake Sutherland is presently managed for its highest

dangerous levels of toxic wastes in Salt Creek Park. The toxins included incredibly high levels of lead and other heavy metals left behind when the old shooting range at the park was closed in 1968. EPA tests confirmed that the toxic wastes threatened the health of park users — especially children — and that the toxins were moving off-site, toward the Strait of Juan de Fuca, where they would someday endanger shellfish beds. Even though county officials knew of these toxic wastes and knew that these wastes posed a health risk to park users, they did nothing to protect the public. In fact, county officials tried to block testing of the site and its eventual cleanup. The county even tried to prevent posting of warning signs to keep people out of areas where their health could be harmed by exposure to soil or fungi, such as edible mushrooms, that absorb lead. County officials were responding to pressure
from a special-interest group that wants to develop a sensitive wetlands area at the headwaters of Sadie Creek into a complex of shooting ranges, in violation of federal bestmanagement practices. County park officials didn’t want the community to know that shooting ranges are extremely harmful in sensitive environments. The EPA simply worked through the local politics and found the money and expertise to clean up Salt Creek Park. The agency deserves our thanks. Josey Paul, Joyce EDITOR’S NOTE — EPA’s on-site study of the site was prompted by Paul’s concerns. We asked Joel Winborn, Clallam County Parks, Fair and Facilities manager, for a response. Here it is: ■ No claims were made by the Environmental Protection Agency that there was a specific threat to children. Turn

Peninsula Voices Continued from A10 Rather, there were concerns raised about those individuals who might wander into this remote and difficult-to-access location of the park. ■ County officials did not block any testing attempts. ■ The county did not try to prevent posting of signage. ■ The county was not responding to any specialinterest group. ■ The Sadie Creek proposal will not violate EPA Best Management Practices. ■ The county has not hidden any information from the “community.” ■ The county and the state both worked through existing protocol for assessing this site under the state Model Toxics Control Act, and this site did not receive a high ranking for cleanup.

defense against nanoparticles crossing the blood-brain barrier and the placenta. Health professionals researching birth defects, cancer, diabetes, respiratory and cardiac diseases discovered their dangers only in the last five years. Nanoparticles are completely unregulated. Burning more fuel releases more nanoparticles. Nippon will double its biomass combustion. Winds will carry all pollutants into our gardens, farms, waters and our bodies. ■ Healthy forests: Our economy depends on timber and tourism. How much slash wood is available, and how much can we remove from our forests before trees won’t grow as quickly? Our Department of Natural Resources
launched a study to find out, but we won’t have the results until late in 2011. Let’s wait and find out. ■ Elwha’s water: Nippon’s environmental impact statement says it will use up to 3.2 million gallons of additional water every day from the Elwha, where we’re trying to restore the fishery after the dams come down. The Elwha’s critical low September and October flows will get even worse as our snowfields and glaciers recede. And they are. Will this endanger the fisheries? Shouldn’t the fishermen, agencies, the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe and all of us care? River flows and fisheries are not even addressed in the environmental impact statement.

Israel’s security In response to the Dec. 20 letter to Peninsula Voices, “Peace process,” facts about the Middle East, in particular Israel, are important. ■ Our military is not “fighting and dying for Israel’s security.” It is important that we know where our troops are fighting. ■ When peace for land was on the table, the Palestinians turned it down. Remember Arafat? When Israel became a state, Israel agreed to proposed borders. Her Arab neighbors did not. War was their answer. ■ In 2000, land was given up for peace in Lebanon.
The result was the Lebanon war of 2006. ■ In 2005, Gaza was given back. The result was Hamas’ Gaza operation of 20082009. When Israel agreed to give up for land for peace, the peace part by the Palestinians has not followed. To make it clear, Israel defends her right to exist. There are Arabs living in Israel who have said they would choose to remain Israelis rather than move to a newly formed “Palestinian state.” Iran’s leader has vowed to destroy Israel. What if he does? Which country will be next? Where is the outcry for Iran’s activity? A fact is a fact is a fact. Personal opinions are just that, personal opinions. Linda Cutler, Port Angeles

The Associated Press
Seattle’s Ichiro was expecting a new winning era to start for the Mariners in 2010, he told a Japanese newspaper in an interview.
Ichiro looks back on 2010 EDITOR’S NOTE: This interview with Ichiro originally appeared in Mainichi Daily News in Japan last week. Mainichi Daily News
SEATTLE — In 2010, Ichiro extended his major league record for consecutive 200-hit seasons to 10. The Seattle Mariners star also tied Pete Rose’s career mark of 10 200-hit seasons while making his 10th All-Star Game appearance and winning his 10th Gold Glove. The Mariners, though, suffered yet another disappointing season, finishing last in the AL West — 29 games behind the American League champion Texas Rangers. Ichiro has been piling up hits at a pace no one else can match in the history of baseball. But there has been no postseason for the Mariners since they last played in 2001 after winning a major league record-tying 116 games in Ichiro’s rookie year. In a recent interview with Kyodo News, Ichiro shared his thoughts on his 10th season in the major leagues. Q: You had high expectations for your team at the beginning of the season, but it turned out to be a disappointing year. A: When Randy Johnson threw out the ceremonial first pitch in our season home opener, he was joined on the mound by Dan Wilson, Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Junior (Ken Griffey Jr.). It was good to see them all together but at the same time made me wonder if there is a real teammate for me. I hoped that Felix (Hernandez) or (Chone) Figgins would become one and that 2010 would be the start of a new Mariners era. But we stumbled from the outset. Q: Griffey abruptly ended his career by announcing his retirement (on June 2). Was it the most shocking thing for you this year? A: He had a Hall of Fame career. It seems as if he’s living a life of his own, but indeed he is a person who takes good care of others. It was hard to see such a great player have to leave the field in despair. Griffey was Ichiro’s one and only idol long before he began his major league career in 2001. Ichiro: I never thought I would have a chance to play alongside Junior on the same team. It was so special to spend time with him. Q: The Mariners suffered 101 losses for the second time in three seasons. The 2010 team consisted mainly of young players. A: Most members of the 2008 team have gone, so everyone knows the situation is not the same. But I’ve been a member of the Mariners the past 10 seasons. After all this time I wonder why we still lose this many games. Q: In recent years, the team has repeated a brief rise and a long downward slide. Turn

Surprisingly, Tampa Bay and Seattle not only remain in playoff contention with two weeks left in the regular season, but the Seahawks (6-8) actually still have a shot at winning the NFC West — maybe even with a losing record. The prospect that the NFC West winner could have a losing record has sparked debate over whether that team would be deserving of hosting a firstround playoff game against a wild-card team with a better record. Under current NFL guidelines, no division champion can be seeded lower than No. 4.
Pete Carroll, in his first season with the Seahawks after a suc- Next Game cessful run as a national Today c h a m p i o n - vs. Buccaneers s h i p - w i n - at Tampa Bay ning coach Time: 1 p.m. at Southern On TV: Ch. 13 California, likes the rule the way it is. “The system is already set up,” Carroll said. “I’m always a system guy. Remember back in the BCS days, I was always a system guy. It is what it is. “You win the division, you’ve done what you needed to do to position yourselves as the system allows. “You get a home game, here
you go, whatever the record is. I know there are teams that have 10, maybe 11 wins that aren’t in as good a situation as we are right now. “That’s their lot right now. We’re fortunate to be where we are and we’ll see what we can do with it.”
Two wins equals title Wins against the Bucs and Rams, who enter Sunday tied with Seattle for first place, will give the Seahawks the division title. There’s even a chance what happens against Tampa Bay will be irrelevant. If the Rams beat San Francisco in a game that will end around the time the Seahawks and Bucs are getting under way, then next week’s season finale between Seattle and St. Louis at Qwest Field will decide the division title. Carroll shrugged off questions about whether his team would approach Sunday’s game with less urgency if it turns out
the result will be insignificant. “It’s classic that everyone would think that’s the issue, ‘Oh, now we’re going to be all fired up or we’re not.’ That’s not what’s going to take place. If it does, then we’re not where we’re supposed to be yet,” the coach said. “We have to be over and above that stuff, and we have to stay with what’s at hand. “That’s really the great challenge, I think, as we continue to learn how to compete on a regular basis and play like we’re capable regardless of the circumstances.” The Bucs (8-6) are clinging to hopes, too, but will need outside help in addition to winning out. “When we started this thing, we talked about ‘Race to 10’ and people thought we were crazy,” Bucs coach Raheem Morris said. “But it was my mentality, it was my vision, it was what I set out for our team to do. These guys have done nothing but back me. Turn
Heat scorches Lakers by 16 LeBron goes wild vs. L.A. By Greg Beacham
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — LeBron James and Kobe Bryant ran their mouths while they jogged downcourt, not quite making eye contact during an unpleasant conversation in the closing minutes. “Just asked him what he got for Christmas,” James said. Although the two superstars wouldn’t reveal what angry words they exchanged, it wasn’t tough to pick out a few statements Saturday. While Kobe and the Los Angeles Lakers got a disturbing first look at the Miami Heat, LeBron got the last word at Staples Center yet again. James had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists while hitting a season-high five 3-pointers, and the Heat thrived on the holiday stage in a 96-80 victory. Although both teams called the game a television curiosity rather than a potential NBA finals preview, it clearly meant something to James, who had his third triple-double with Miami and the 31st of his career. James also outplayed Bryant, who scored 17 points, in his second straight Christmas win in the Lakers’ home arena, following last season’s victory for LeBron’s Cavaliers.

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant, left, takes a fall next to Miami’s LeBron James during the second half of their game Saturday in Los Angeles. “We’re not trying to make a statement to anyone,” James said. “We’re trying to show each other that we can play at a high level and try to get better every game. This is one game. We’re happy because we got better today.” While the Heat realize Boston and Orlando are much more important obstacles to their championship hopes, and while
the Lakers don’t get terribly excited about playing anybody until the playoffs, there was a palpable edge in the crowd at Staples Center for this intersectional matchup — until the Heat’s steady defensive effort flattened the Lakers in the second half. Chris Bosh had 24 points and 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade added 18 points on a sore knee and the Heat won for the 14th
time in 15 games while flustering the two-time defending champions into a terrible offensive performance, starting with Los Angeles’ 14-point first quarter. “Our whole thing is just playing solid defense the whole game,” Bosh said. “That’s the primary part of our identity.” Turn

Arizona nips Cowboy rally By Bob Baum
The Associated Press
These Port Angeles Basketball players won the Clallam County Family YMCA’s 3-on-3 basketball championship. The players, who went undefeated in the tournament, are Dane Bradow, Ethan Miles, Rweha Munyagi and Easton Joslin. The coach, at right, is Nylene Charles.
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Third-string quarterbacks when the season began, John Skelton and Stephen McGee had lead parts in a Christmas night drama staged by a pair of NFL teams headed nowhere. Jay Feely’s 48-yard field goal inched over the crossbar with 5 seconds to play, giving the Arizona Cardinals a 27-26 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. “Really, nothing’s bigger than beating the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Day right now,” Cardinals rookie QB Skelton said. “Whiz [coach Ken Whisenhunt] was shaking my hand before the game and I said, ‘We have one last gift to unwrap.’ Sure enough, it took the last minute, but we got it.” Dallas (5-10) rallied from 18 points down to take a 26-24 lead when Stephen McGee, in his first NFL game, threw 45 yards to
Miles Austin for a touchdown with 1:46 to play. But David Buehler’s extra point went wide left. “I’m not feeling too good,” Buehler said. “I feel bad for Stephen. He drove the team down there and got the touchdown. “PATs are something that is something automatic. You have to put them through the uprights. I think I just rushed it a little bit.” Arizona (5-10) was in deep trouble after the kickoff, but Skelton, on fourthand-15 from the Cardinals 19, threw 26 yards to Larry Fitzgerald, his only catch of the game. Then Skelton threw 19 yards to fellow rookie Max Komar. An illegal formation penalty moved the ball back 5 yards but still well within Feely’s range. Feely, who had a 49-yarder earlier, has missed three kicks all season, including a 49-yard attempt Saturday night.
Butler defeats NBA: Miami stomps L.A. Lakers WSU for crown The Associated Press
HONOLULU — Shelvin Mack scored 20 points to pace Butler to an 84-68 victory over Washington State in the championship game of the Diamond Head Classic on Saturday night. A 15-0 second-half run fueled the Bulldogs (9-4) to their fifth straight win. Klay Thompson scored a game-high 31 points to lead the Cougars (10-2), whose five-game winning streak ended. Butler, which made a magical run in last season’s NCAA tournament before
Continued from B1 Our backbone right now is defense.” James played a balanced, patient game, even after a technical foul near halftime for an under-the-basket scuffle with Lakers defensive stopper Ron Artest. James’ teammates contributed enough to keep the Heat comfortably ahead, with Bosh playing an outstanding first half and Mario Chalmers contributing 13 points in a reserve role, including three 3-pointers. “Offensively, it’s probably the most trust and the most poise we’ve played with this season,” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. Pau Gasol scored 17 points for the Lakers, who fell behind early and never caught up to the tantalizing new contenders for their title. Although Bryant wore garish green shoes for the holiday, his Lakers simply didn’t raise their games to meet the spotlight that follows Miami, falling well behind in the first half and never making a run. Bryant, who picked up his third technical foul in two games, was visibly displeased with his teammates throughout the second half. “It’s like these games mean more to our opponents than they do to us,” Bryant said. “I think we need to get that straight — play with more focus, put more emphasis on these games. “I don’t like it. We know what we’re capable of doing, and that’s part of the problem.” Lamar Odom had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Lakers, who have lost two straight at home after winning five in a row on the road, following up Tuesday’s collapse against Milwaukee with this highprofile flop. While Odom thinks the Lakers are overconfident, Bryant believes the problems start in practice. “Individually, you have to make that decision on what’s important,” Bryant said. “The game has to be the most important thing. This is serious stuff. You don’t

We’re satisfied with what we’ve got.’ I’m not going to let that slide.” Coach Phil Jackson dislikes the Lakers’ annual spot on the NBA’s Christmas schedule, and perhaps for reasons beyond the season: Los Angeles dropped to 4-8 on Christmas since 1999, including last season’s
one-sided loss to Cleveland, which ended with dozens of giveaway foam hands getting thrown on the court. Players on both teams broke out festive holiday sneakers for the occasion, including lime-green Nike kicks on Bryant, Gasol and Odom. James and Bosh wore holiday-red shoes with garish green laces.
James got his T shortly afterward for shoving Artest under the basket with 10 seconds left in the first half after Artest wrapped nearly his entire arm around James’ neck while battling for rebounding position. “I was in a WWE headlock, and I was trying to get out of it,” James said.
Federation: Taurasi tests positive The Associated Press
NEW YORK — WNBA standout and former UConn star Diana Taurasi tested positive for modafinil while playing in a professional women’s league in Turkey, the country’s basketball federation said Friday. Neither her lawyer nor her team, Fenerbahce, would confirm that Taurasi tested positive for the stimulant, which has been involved in several major doping cases, including that

Modafinil is used to counter excessive sleepiness due to narcolepsy, shiftwork sleep disorder or sleep apnea, according to the website for the prescription drug Provigil, which contains the substance. The Turkish Basketball Federation statement cited a report from the lab at Hacettepe University. “We’re not going to confirm what the drug is,” Taurasi’s lawyer, Howard
Jacobs, told The Associated Press Friday. “We’ll revisit it after the “B” sample returns. They shouldn’t be speaking about it at all.” White won the 100- and 200-meter races at the 2003 world championships in Paris, but both her medals were stripped after she tested positive for the stimulant. Jacobs said Taurasi’s “A” sample came back positive last week and that the sub-
stance “was not a steroid or recreational drug.” Taurasi has been provisionally suspended pending the testing of her “B” sample, sometime early next month. She has already missed three games with Fenerbahce. The team’s website said she and another player were asked to submit to a test on Nov. 13, following the game against Istanbul. The other player tested negative.

Jockeying for that NFC Worst crown WELL, MATT HASSELBECK failed the test we gave him last week. All we asked, well, me specifically, was Brad that he show some of that Pro Bowl form he LaBrie displayed for a couple of years. All we wanted was for him to throw the ball to the guys in the Seattle uniform and not to toss or fumble the ball away like he was playing for a youth football team. All we asked is that he play a little more like Tom Brady and a little less like Brett Favre. But nooooo, he had to prove my sisterin-law and his other detractors right by throwing two interceptions and losing a fumble against the Atlanta Falcons last week for a quarterback rating, are you ready for this, of a whopping 28.9. Don’t strain yourself Matt. At least my sister-in-law and her husband, Sequim residents, were able to let Hasselbeck know what they thought about him in person. They went to the Falcons’ game at Qwest Field last Sunday. “Everyone booed him off the field,” Dennis Lord, my brother-in-law, said during the family’s Christmas Eve party. “We were booing along with everyone else.” Trust me, you don’t want my sister-inlaw, Dagny, screaming at you. Seachicken fans literally yelled Hasselbeck off the field as coach Pete Carroll benched him in favor of backup Charlie Whitehurst. “Charlie played well,” Dennis Lord said. Actually, anyone would have looked good next to Hasselbeck. Well, my in-laws and a few other fans are going to be upset because Carroll said he was starting Hasselbeck today at Tampa Bay instead of Whitehurst. Carroll says he believes the Seachickens (not his word) have a better chance of winning with Hasselbeck at the helm. The maligned quarterback has two games to show it. Ironically, the 6-8-and-two-games-left Seachickens don’t even have to win today’s game as long as they beat the St. Louis Rams at home the following week, the last Sunday of the season. The Rams are tied with Seattle at 6-8 and the two will square off for the NFC Worst title Jan. 2. The whole sports world is drooling over this match-up. The BCS Championship Bowl Game, who cares? Hah! We have the Seachickens and Rams. So, there are some who are saying Seattle should rest up some players and put all of its marbles on the table for next week’s game with the Rams. But to Carroll’s credit, he told The Associated Press that the Seachickens (again, not his word), would not think about not giving their all for today’s game even if a win would be meaningless to making the playoffs. This team is struggling in too many ways to think about letting up in a game. The Seachickens need to go all-out in every game in a try to hit some kind of consistent rhythm and get a positive

momentum going. Or just to go down the field and score a touchdown without turning the stupid ball over. Expect the Bucs (8-6) to be ready to rumble today. They were shocked in a 23-20 overtime loss to Detroit in Tampa last week. They are now in a must-win mode to make the playoffs. Even though they have a second-year starter at quarterback (Josh Freeman) and the youngest team in the NFL, expect the Seachickens to lose another road game.
Top Six 1. New England Patriots (12-2) — The Packers, who are running out of time, game the Pats a scare last week with little-used backup Matt Flynn at the helm, but Stephen King’s team is still the elite of the elite. At least for right now. 2. Atlanta Falcons (12-2) — Last week’s results shouldn’t count since it came against the woeful Seachickens. 3. Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4) — The only 11-win team because they were lucky enough to host beyond-woeful Carolina on Thursday. They were ahead 20-0 at halftime and 27-0 going into the final quarter before winning 27-3. 4. New Orleans Saints (10-4) — They do more with less than any other team in the league. They have less elite players than any of the other top teams. 5. Baltimore Ravens (10-4) — They have a few problems (which team doesn’t this year) but they’re hanging in there. 6. Philadelphia Eagles (10-4) — They get the nod over the Jets and the Bears (both 10-4) because of the outstanding comeback they had against the Giants last week. It will be interesting to see if the tank has anything left in it after that.
Bottom Six 27. Arizona Cardinals (4-10) — They are a little higher than I would normally put them because they were leading Dallas 21-10 at halftime Saturday while I was writing this. They’re finally showing some life. Of course, I could have egg on my face by today if the Cowboys have an Eagles-like comeback. But then, I would look normal anyway. 28. Detroit Lions (4-10) — They finally won a road game when they beat the Bucs last week. Their first road win in a century-and-a-half or something like that. 29. Buffalo Bills (4-10) — A big win when they held off Miami on the road last week. 30. Cincinnati Bengals (3-11) — They did beat the Browns last week but they’re only this high because the last two teams are so awful. 31. Denver Broncos (3-11) — Talk about stink city. If you’re an unhappy Seachickens fan, just imagine being a Broncos fan. Paper bags must be hard to find on game days. 32. Carolina Panthers (2-13) — Some Panther fans were angry when Carolina beat Arizona last week. They were thinking about the draft, of course, and dreaming about Andrew Luck, projected to be No. 1. I don’t think Panther fans have to worry about that.

Seahawks have dropped four of five, yet still have shot at winning NFC West. Bucs, who’ve lost three of four, need to win last two and receive help from others to earn wildcard spot. Tampa Bay 3-4 at home compared to 5-2 on road. With 2,977 yards passing, Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck closing in on seventh 3,000-yard season. He is 3-1 as starter against Tampa Bay, which beat him in Seattle last season. Seahawks WR Mike Williams is Tampa native who’s making most of opportunity to play for former college coach Pete Carroll. After sitting out past two seasons, former first-round draft pick of Lions has 60 receptions for 720 yards and one touchdown. Bucs counter with Mike Williams of their own. The rookie receiver leads Bucs with 58 catches for 880 yards and eight TDs. Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch, who’s rushed for 609 yards, has four touchdowns in past three weeks. Seahawks next to last in rushing in NFL at 85.2 yards per game, however Tampa Bay coming off yielding 188 yards on ground to Washington and 181 to Detroit past two weeks. Redskins’ Ryan Torain ran for 172 yards and Lions’ Maurice Morris went for 109. Bucs QB Josh Freeman has thrown for 517 yards, two TDs and no interceptions in past two games. He nearly pulled off sixth fourth-quarter rally of season last week, producing late field goal that gave Tampa Bay a lead with under two minutes to go against Detroit. But Tampa Bay’s defense faltered, allowing Lions to drive for tying field goal in regulation and game-winning kick in OT. Tampa Bay’s Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn have combined for 82 receptions, most by any NFL rookie receiving tandem. Bucs TE Kellen Winslow has reception in 74 consecutive games, third longest streak among active tight ends.
Trufant ready to play today By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
RENTON — Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has not seen an injury report this small in more than two months. And it couldn’t come at a better time for his Seattle Seahawks. Carroll said Friday the Seahawks (6-8) will face Tampa Bay as healthy as they have been in quite awhile, heading into a crucial game with playoff implications for both teams. Wins by Seattle in its final two games will wrap up the NFC West title. The best piece of news Seattle got regards cornerback Marcus Trufant, who will be able to go after leaving last week’s game against Atlanta with back spasms. “There’s just a couple questions going into the game at all, and what we were hoping to have,” Carroll said. “So we’re very fortunate in that, and again like I said, I hope that that helps us.”

Trufant said his back started to loosen up as the game progressed but not enough that he could return. The injury also sparked a little worry in the veteran cornerback after missing the first six games of the 2009 season with back issues. But after talking with the doctors early in the week, Trufant was put at ease that this was not related to his previous back problems. “That was one of the first things that came to my mind, but not a lot of the same feelings,” Trufant said. “So after I got it checked out, after the doctors looked Seahawks health at it, I was pretty confident Carroll isn’t kidding that I’d be back.” when it comes to the Seahawks health.

Life is anything but boring at the Strid household. From left are visiting cousin Megan Hull, Brett, 13, Ryan, 8, dad Brad, cousin Jacob Hull, mom Leah, Caleb, 1½ months, and Eric, 11. A voucher for their landlord from the Peninsula Home Fund says the couple was the “first step to help us avoid eviction and get current on the rest of our bills.”
Home Fund helps family avoid eviction EDITOR’S NOTE — For 21 years, Peninsula Daily News readers in Jefferson and Clallam counties have supported the Peninsula Home Fund. Today, we feature another in a series of articles that provides a window into how the fund operates and who benefits from our readers’ generosity. The next article will appear Wednesday.

FORKS — When it rains, it pours in Forks — and that’s not simply a metaphor in the Strid household. When Brad Strid, 36, and his wife, Leah, felt the floodwaters of financial debt sucking them under, the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund was the first to throw them a lifeline. “The Home Fund saved us by giving my landlord a voucher for $100,” says the father of four boys, Brett, 13, Eric, 11, Ryan, 8, and Caleb, 1½ months. “He was able to cash that in and then allowed me to work off the rest working for him in the trailer park.” The Home Fund grant was the “first step to help us avoid eviction and get current on the rest of our bills,” says Brad. “If people hadn’t helped us out, we’d be living out on the streets or in a family shelter.” It’s been a rough year, but things are looking up. Starting in January, Brad will start work full time for a commercial trucking company that freights frozen foods for large companies. When he starts driving, he will make $450 a week for five weeks and then 28 cents a mile, “which is supposed to average out to $750 a week driving their truck,” says Brad.

ordered Leah on mandatory bed rest for the last two months of her pregnancy. Baby Caleb was born Oct. 21. Leah, 32, tried to prepare in advance for her loss of income while caring for an infant by signing up to work part time as a mystery shopper, a job that typically involves visiting a store, making predetermined purchases and evaluating the customer service. While this can be a legitimate job, in Leah’s case, it turned out to be scam that resulted in $900 stolen from her checking account. “We were so stressed with the whole thing of losing all that money,” says Leah. “We just kind of looked at each other and said, ‘What do we do now?”’ Moral lessons The family found help through Experiences over the last year OlyCAP.

No deductions — a ‘hand up’ The PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund — a safety net for local residents when there is nowhere else to turn — is seeking contributions for its annual holiday season fundraising campaign. From Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to LaPush, it’s a “hand up, not a handout” for children, teens, families and the elderly. All the money collected for the Home Fund goes — without any deductions — for hot meals for seniors, meeting rent, energy and transportation needs, warm winter coats for kids, home repairs for the low-income, needed eyeglasses and prescription drugs, dental work, safe, drug-free temporary housing . . . The list goes on and on . . . Begun in 1989, the Home Fund is supported entirely by Jefferson and Clallam residents. Individuals, couples, businesses, churches, service organizations and school groups set a record for contributions in 2009 — $230,806.95. With heavy demand this year, the carefully rationed fund is being rapidly depleted. Since Jan. 1, the Home Fund has helped more than 2,200 individuals and families like Brad Strid’s on the North Olympic Peninsula.
Money almost gone The last of the money collected in 2009 is expected to be exhausted this week. Peninsula Home Fund is a unique, nonprofit program: ■ No money is deducted for administration or
other overhead. Your entire donation — 100 percent, every penny — goes to help those who are facing times of crisis. ■ All contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible. ■ Some people call the PDN’s Peninsula Home Fund “shoestring philanthropy.” Money from the Home Fund is usually given out in small amounts, normally up to $150. And assistance is limited to one time in a12-month period. But even though the dollar figures are small, the impact can be big, in huge, life-changing ways. ■ Instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through the crisis — and every effort is made to put them back on the path to self-sufficiency. That’s the “hand up, not a handout” focus of the fund. In many instances, Peninsula Home Fund case managers at OlyCAP work with individuals or
families to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. And, as necessary, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from other agencies, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. ■ Your personal information is kept confidential. Peninsula Daily News does not rent, sell, give or otherwise share your address or other information with anyone, or make any other use of the information.

In honor of God. For several years, we have been setting aside our tithe money to give away. At first, we gave it anonymously to people we would see working hard at the malls. Then we began to pray for direction to people who really needed it throughout the year. The following are some of the recipients: ■ A soldier so he could go home to see his family before going to Afghanistan. ■ A Northwest Indian Nation to help their senior citizens. ■ A mother of two who had just left an abusive husband. She was able to buy heat for her home for the winter. ■ A couple who was behind in their mortgage payments. ■ A woman who needed $1,000 for the deductible to buy a diabetes monitor. These people were brought to our attention when we least expected it. We both have been the recipients of this kind of gift, so all we suggested was when their lives turned around, if they could, they would pass the gift along in some manner. This year, we are happy to find an organization that helps many people and does an excellent job of reaching them when they are in need. Since this not our money but God’s, we feel privileged to be able to pass His money along to others. Thank you for your service.

Take a peek at what piqued interest “HOW DO WE get into birdwatching more?” a reader asked. If you’ve been watching birds for a long time, you have to think back to when you first became involved in this activity. It’s important to understand why you asked the question in the first place. What piqued your interest in birds? It was a male house finch with its red head that caught my eye. When one particular bird claims your attention for longer than a few moments, you’re hooked. You want to know what the bird is called. Where did it come from? Is it common or rare? The best way to answer these questions is by using a field guide for birds.
I loved looking at the picCarson tures and thinking of the day when I would see some of the beautiful and interesting birds shown in the book. This lengthy poring over the illustrations paid big dividends when I spotted one of these avian celebrities. I had looked at the drawings so many times that when I did see the bird, I could immediately identify it. Familiarity with your field On the market guide is important when you become more involved with There are many good ones on watching and identifying birds. the market.

Speed in finding your subject and speed in bringing it into focus are equally important. Eventually, you will also want to own a good spotting scope. It will make it possible to see birds that are too far away for binoculars. Once you have your optical
gear and your well-studied field guide, the next step is to “go a-birding.” The world is yours — literally. You can bird almost anywhere. Start close to home in a nearby park. Visit a wildlife refuge. For some special fun, join a local birding club. Audubon chapters offer a great variety of field trips, and the old hands in the group love sharing their knowl-

Take calls from high-level boss/spouse DEAR ABBY: When my husband, “Mac,” calls me on the phone, he expects me to look at the caller ID and immediately interrupt whatever conversation I’m having to take his call. Unless I expect an important call (from a doctor or my children’s school), I do not look at the caller ID. I give my full attention to the person I’m speaking to. If I hear someone “beep,” I’ll attempt to quickly bring the conversation to a polite and natural end before calling back the person who tried to reach me. Mac believes that anyone I’m talking to should understand that he takes priority. Today, he called seven

He is not otherwise demanding and usually calls me only once a day. I make every effort to quickly wrap up my phone calls and return his within minutes. Who is right? On a Short Phone Leash
Dear On a Short Phone Leash: As your husband is a high-level executive, his time may be tightly scheduled. Because he calls you only once a day, it’s not too much to ask that you take the call. I can understand that he finds it frustrating that you refuse. If I were you, I’d start taking these calls — unless you would prefer getting your messages from your husband via his personal assistant. Dear Abby: My mother-in-law, “Thelma,” came to live with us two years ago because at 82, she was no longer financially able to support herself. Because she likes to

Resolving to keep thumbs green I HOPE EVERYONE had a most joyous and memorable Christmas, sharing the special day with family and friends. For our family, it was wonderful; my mother stayed with us again, spoiling the grandchildren with food, love and presents. And as we gathered around the beautiful noble fir Christmas tree, hand-selected and cut down by the grandkids and Grandma from our local Lazy J Tree Farm, we all could not help but realize how gorgeous it is here, fireplace ablaze, weather mild, the Strait of Juan de Fuca in stark contrast to the sky and islands. So as the year wraps up and the fat lady is practicing the proverbial swan song, let me take today to write what in the business is considered the annual ritual of New Year’s and make my 2011 predictions and resolutions. To begin, I will start with a Christmas card I received from Peninsula College, where I teach horticulture.

State to sell ads on ferries website Legislature OKs $75,000 for yearlong revenue test The Associated Press
other state agencies, she said Thursday. Because ads can’t be sold on dot-gov websites, the pages will be converted to dot-com addresses, but they’ll be instantly linked when users click, she said. One state lawmaker who supports advertising on the government websites, Rep. Reuven Carlyle of Seattle, told KOMO News they could generate $4 million to $5 million a year.
said state Transportation Department spokesman Steve Pierce. The ads will relate to travel or tourism. The Legislature approved spending $75,000 on the yearlong test to determine if the ads can make money without disrupting people looking for ferry information. “We join a handful of government agencies across the country exploring website advertising and how it might benefit taxpayers,” Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond said in a statement.
SEATTLE — Desperate for revenue, Washington will test the waters of Internet advertising with advertisements from the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau on the state ferries website. The ads will begin Jan. 3 on pages that provide ferry schedule information and track vessels on Puget Sound, said Karina Shagren, a spokeswoman in the New revenue? Governor’s Office.

as well as offer businesses a new way to reach potential customers.” The Transportation Department’s Web pages get about 410 million page views a year. The 12 schedule pages and the ferry tracking page receive nearly 1.2 million page views a month.
The department expects its website viewership will be attractive to businesses selling to drivers, travelers and tourists in Washington, said Jeff Doyle, director of the Public-Private Partnerships Office. The pilot will test revenue and cost assumptions and evaluate how the public feels about seeing ads on the pages.

Navy a danger to marine life? Environmentalists “I’m not convinced by worry about the assurances that the expanded testing Navy gives that there The Associated Press
BELLINGHAM — Environmentalists are worried that plans to expand Navy testing off the Washington, Oregon and California coasts will pose a danger to whales. A proposal for increased sailor training and weapons testing, as well as an underwater training minefield for submarines in the Navy’s Northwest Training Range, have been approved by the Obama administration.
Used since before WWII The area — 122,400 nautical square miles of space, equal roughly to the size of California — has been used for Navy training since before World War II. Environmentalists are concerned about plans to expand training there. In a letter to the Navy, the Natural Resources Defense Council said the plan “would pose significant risk to whales, fish and other wildlife.” The group is concerned about hazardous materials in the water from both spent and unexploded weapons.
150 orcas Environmentalists worry about the safety of the 150 orcas known to live in Puget Sound and along the Pacific coastline from Washington to California. “They’re all very susceptible,” said Howard Garrett, the president of Orca Network, a nonprofit group based in the San Juan Islands. “The Navy is singleminded, and they’re focused, and the whales are very much a secondary concern to them.” The group is among the many opponents in Washington state and California lining up against the Navy’s plan. Navy officials have been assuring the public that the marine life will be safe. “We are not even permitted to kill even one marine mammal . . . What people don’t seem to understand is we share the environment with everybody,” said Sheila Murray, a Navy spokeswoman.
will be no effect. I can’t imagine that there won’t be mortalities.”
Howard Garrett president of Orca Network
“It’s our environment, too. Of course we want to take care of it. “The Navy goes to great lengths to protect the marine environment.” Of the Navy’s expanded operations at the site, she said: “This training is important. It allows naval forces to be prepared.” Opponents fear that missile and sonar testing and the dumping of depleted uranium could hurt the whales.
Hazardous materials The Natural Resources Defense Council worries that the Navy will release a variety of hazardous materials into coastal waters, including “thousands of rounds of spent ammunition and unexploded ordnance containing chromium, chromium compounds, depleted uranium” and more. The council also believes the mid-frequency sonar the Navy uses to detect submarines and underwater objects interferes with whales’ ability to navigate and communicate and that the chronic noise can interfere with whales’ brain development and depress reproductive rates.
‘Not convinced’ “I’m not convinced by the assurances that the Navy gives that there will be no effect,” Garrett said. “I can’t imagine that there won’t be mortalities.” Murray called that concern a myth. “The Navy’s been training on that range since before World War II: 70 years,” she said. “Nobody was even aware that the Navy was there. “And if what they were saying was true, they would see dead marine mammals floating up on shore. “It’s not true.”

State cuts to kill Salmon in Classroom program; teachers upset about loss The Associated Press
SEATTLE — Each year, 40,000 school children in the state have been introduced to the life of the salmon through the Salmon in the Classroom program. But beginning in January, the 20-year-old program is ending because of state budget cuts. Teachers who rely on the program to teach schoolchildren to raise salmon and release them into the wild are upset. “We heard it was on the chopping block,” said Steven Garlid, who teaches at Bryant Elementary School in Seattle. “It’s been a wonderful program at Bryant for my entire career, 17 years. “There’s no substitute for watching salmon eggs develop and hatch.” The fifth-grade teacher said his students teach younger ones about salmon,
and it is an all-school science program. “I can only guess what the loss will be,” said Garlid. “It’s losing a tradition. “You can’t learn this online. We’re losing something that binds the community, and it shows how desperate the state has become.”
Special session Craig Bartlett, spokesman for the state Department of Fish & Wildlife, said it was eliminated during the Legislature’s special session and also was proposed to be eliminated in Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposed budget for the next two years. The department had paid for the program. It had been available at an average of 495 schools each year. Eliminating the program will save $110,000 the rest
of this school year and $442,000 for the next biennium. All of the money for the program came from the federal government, but the federal funds will be used for other fish and wildlife projects, such as fish-catch assessment and keeping track of salmon in the wild. “We are sorry to lose the program,” said Christy Vassar, program manager with the department’s fish program. “Tens of thousands of young people learned about the natural world for the last 20 years, but these are extremely tough economic times, and all state agencies are required to cut back.” The elimination of the program is part of a $6.2 million cut in the Fish & Wildlife budget, plus an additional $4 million in lost revenue in the state wildlife fund. “This is just one of a number of cuts,” said Bartlett.
James Chandler has been running the program for Fish & Wildlife for the past 12 years and worries that if it is eliminated, it will never come back. “Not only does Salmon in the Classroom affect students, it bleeds over into adults,” he said. “A lot of kids go home with this connection and share it with their parents. “My concern is we’re taking another hit in education. “I’m deeply hurt; this is a program I fell in love with, and I truly understand the value for students.” Garlid said saving the program would take a grass-roots effort because he doubts Seattle schools could afford it. “I’ve talked to a few parents about this, and they’re shocked, and the outcry will be heard,” he said. “It’s such an important program.”
How to use that gift card wisely: Tips to make after-yule dollars go farther By Mae Anderson
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — It’s traditional for many to cap a long season of Christmas shopping with more shopping once the holiday has passed. They spend gift cards and cash and exchange clothes that were the wrong size, wrong color or just plain wrong. However, people tend to treat gifts as “found money” and worry less about using
How’s the fishing? Matt Schubert reports. Fridays in

the dollars wisely. But a little thought can make your after-Christmas dollars go a lot farther: n Know what a deal is. Don’t blindly assume you’re getting a good deal just because you’re shopping after Christmas. Stores know people will be spending gift cards and are less likely to scrutinize prices. You can find good discounts on items like coats, hats and snow shovels that get less likely to sell with each passing day, because stores know they have to unload them. But more evergreen items like video game systems are much less likely to be on sale. n What to target. You
will probably find the best deals on clothing, said Dan de Grandpre, editor-in-chief of Dealnews.com, as clothing stores clear out what’s left of their inventory and get ready for new merchandise. However, retailers stocked up somewhat cautiously this year. You might find a great deal on, say, a coat, but it might not be the ideal color or style. There were probably better toy deals before Christmas, during price wars among Target, Walmart, Toys R Us and other toy sellers, de Grandpre says. Also, the hottest toys like Monster High dolls were scarce even before Christmas.
Don’t expect to find them now. You aren’t likely to find great deals on most electronics, either, de Grandpre said. For most items, January will probably be better. Stores discount TVs then to draw buyers who want to upgrade before the Super Bowl. For gadgets like smart phones, price cuts are likely in January ahead of the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, when manufacturers get shoppers excited about the next big thing. One electronics category that might have good sales now is computers, said Morningstar analyst R.J. Hottovy.
Computers “haven’t seen the sales traction retailers were hoping for,” he said. Don’t look for markdowns, though, on tablet computers, such as Apple’s iPad. n Start shopping now. “You can beat some people to the punch and find things that could be sold out by next day,” said de Grandpre. n Get there early. If you’re shopping clearance sales, the earlier you get to the store, the more you’ll have to choose from. n Stock up early. Some people are planners, and some aren’t. But there’s never a better time to save money on greeting cards, gift wrap and other holiday staples
than after the holiday has just passed. One warning: Don’t do it unless you have a safe, dry place to store the items. Rolls of gift wrap that get bent and bruised will just mean you’ll throw it away and buy more. n Save the cash. If you got what some consider the sweetest present of all, remember this: You don’t have to spend it. Not right away, anyway. And there are uses for it that could wind up making the gift bigger in the long run. Paying down debt or investing the money can make the gift keep on giving long after the holiday is a dim memory.

Seeking an early start on your taxes? Congress’ late approval of income tax breaks forces IRS to reboot its processing procedures Peninsula Daily News
and news services
he filing of federal tax returns by thousands of Washington state residents will be delayed by up to a month or more because of processing issues caused by a new federal tax law. The Internal Revenue Service said that taxpayers claiming certain tax breaks will have to wait until mid-tolate February to file their returns.
Tax-filing season typically starts in mid-to-late January, so the delay could range from a few weeks to a month — or longer. The problem will also affect many families seeking financial aid for college. The IRS could not say exactly when it will begin accepting the affected returns for processing. The agency said it will announce “in the near future” a specific date. At issue is the big federal tax bill that was approved by Congress and signed into law by President Obama on Dec. 17. Among other things, the law made changes to federal tax law that will affect the returns that people file during the coming taxfiling season. At the time the new law was enacted, the IRS was well along in the process of preparing its computers for the season based on
provisions of prior law. In essence, the IRS now must go back and make changes to its computer systems and related processes.
Four deduction types To allow for that, the agency said it will have to delay — until mid-to-late February — the processing of returns from taxpayers in the following situations: n Those who make a separate list of their deductions on Schedule A of the U.S. Form 1040 (a process known as itemizing), instead of claiming a lump-sum deduction (called the standard deduction). n Those who claim a deduction for state and local sales tax. n Those who claim the new higher education tuition and fees deduction for parents and students, covering up to $4,000 paid to a post-secondary institution.
n Kindergarten-throughgrade 12 educators who have outof-pocket classroom expenses of up to $250 for which they are not reimbursed. Of the four categories, the one with the broadest impact in Washington state relates to itemized deductions and deductions for sales tax. Most taxpayers who file early in the season are due refunds, said Patricia A. Thompson, head of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ national tax executive committee. So the delay is “unfortunate for those people that want to file early to get their refunds early,” she said. The delay in processing “will delay their refunds,” she said. For tax preparers, the delays will “cause a bottleneck,” said Gregory A. Porcaro, who teaches taxation at Bryant University and is president of Otrando Porcaro & Associates Ltd., a CPA firm in Warwick, R.I. “That’s going to be a pain in the neck.” The delay could also cause a problem for the IRS, because the agency’s system probably will have to handle a surge in returns in late February, Porcaro said.

Sales-tax deduction continues Peninsula Daily News and news services
WASHINGTON — The new $858 billion tax measure signed into law by President Obama will allow residents of Washington and six other states that don’t have state income taxes to continue to deduct state sales taxes on their 2010 and 2011 federal returns. In 2008, nearly 860,000 taxpayers in Washington state, or 27 percent, itemized their sales taxes, according to the Internal Revenue Service. The deductions averaged $2,011, or worth $563 per return, assuming a 28 percent marginal tax rate.
The other six states that have only sales taxes and no state income taxes are Texas, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee and Wyoming. When the federal tax code was simplified in 1986, the deduction for state sales tax was eliminated. Taxpayers in states with income taxes were allowed to continue deducting what they paid in state income tax on their federal returns. The sales tax deduction was restored in 2004, but Congress has refused to make it permanent. Instead, it’s been a sweetener used by congressional leaders looking for votes on controversial bills near the end of a session.
Mortgage tax break could die in new deficit-hawk Congress Peninsula Daily News news services
WASHINGTON — Fifteen years ago, Carol Nietmann and her husband bought a spacious house in Maryland near Chesapeake Bay. Thanks to the time-honored tax deduction for mortgage interest, she said, their new place was a little bigger and a little nicer than they otherwise could afford. Much the same has been true for millions of Americans up and down the income scale. Perhaps the most sacred of all sacred cows in the tax code, the mortgage deduction long has been seen as crucial to a piece of the American dream — owning a home. But nearly a century after coming into existence, the mortgage deduction may face a day of reckoning next year when the new Congress — including a lot more deficit-hawk Republicans — takes over. In part, the deduction has a target on its back as a result of
he mortgage tax deduction may face a day of reckoning next year when the new Congress — including a lot more deficit-hawk Republicans — takes over. policymakers rethinking the issue of homeownership. In the wake of the havoc that followed the latest housing bust — a calamity that still shadows the U.S. economy and will for years — it’s no longer so clear that near-universal homeownership should be a paramount goal.
Not equitable The deduction has been a boon to homebuilders, construction workers, the financial-services industry and local governments that benefited from fatter realestate tax revenue. Scholars long have argued that
the mortgage deduction and other tax subsidies supporting housing, including a deduction for property taxes and tax exemptions for profits on home sales, are neither equitable nor economically efficient. Some say they’ve helped skew the economy’s reliance on an industry that has little export potential and often encourages overconsumption. “It’s fair to ask whether [government money] is best spent on housing — or plants and equipment or other investments,” said Richard Green, director of the Lusk Center for Real Estate at University of Southern California. More important, despite the deduction’s grip on the public and politicians, changing it as part of a package of other revisions offers Washington a chance to do something meaningful about the country’s surging debt — generate billions of dollars more in federal revenues while inflicting surprisingly little pain on most middleclass homeowners.

$250,000 short The estimated budget for the festival, which drew 32,000 people in 2008, is $1.2 million. Girouard said the organization was about $250,000 short when it pulled the plug. “It was clear the trend line in terms of cash and our capacity to pull it all off was not getting to where it needed to be,” he said. “The society carried a bit of a
war chest over from the last festival so from a pure cash position it seemed fine, but we realized at this time in past years we had promissory notes and handshakes that covered a lot of things that we don’t have yet this year.” Gialloreto, the Tourism Victoria CEO, said the festival was to play a big role in Tourism Victoria’s 2011 marketing plans — it had set aside $30,000 to promote the event — to say nothing of boosting tourism revenues.

festival could be revived but that window of opportunity is small. “If someone calls and says, ‘Here’s a quarter-million dollars,’ then sure we will aim to do it, but the challenge, of course, is we have started to talk to stakeholders and partners and we’ve initiated the process of disassembly so it is a limited-time offer,” he said. Girouard said the society will work to bring the festival back ahead of the usual three-year cycle that would have it in Victoria again in 2014. “We intend to be back,” he said.

Lasers aimed at pilots worry aviation officials By Joan Lowy The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Federal Aviation Administration officials are worried about a substantial increase in the number of people pointing lasers at aircraft cockpits. They say the intense light can distract and temporarily blind pilots and has caused some to relinquish control to co-pilots or abort landings.
No ‘On the Waterfront’ Columnist David G. Sellars is taking the week off from his maritime column.
This year, there have been more than 2,200 incidents reported to the Federal Aviation Administration, up from fewer than 300 in 2005. California, Texas and Florida have recorded the most, but the problem is widespread across the country. There hasn’t been an air crash so far, but the incidents have aviation officials concerned. “It sounds silly, but this is a serious problem,” FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt wrote in a Transportation Department blog. “We know that laser pointers are an important tool for astronomers and casual stargazers,” Babbitt wrote. “But we just can’t stress enough the importance of being careful when you are shining them into the night sky.”
The rise in incidents has coincided with a growing hobbyist market for handheld lasers that are far more powerful — and potentially dangerous — than the typical laser pointer. At the same time prices have dropped. Lasers that once cost more than $1,000 can now be bought online for a few hundred dollars or less. Some lasers are marketed with holsters that can be clipped onto a belt, creating a gunslinger-like appearance. Earlier this year, Lucasfilm threatened legal action against Wicked Lasers, a Hong Kong-based company whose lasers have aluminum handles that resemble the lightsabers of the “Star Wars” movies. Lucasfilm later dropped the threat. “Wicked Lasers defeats

There are red, blue and violet lasers as well, but the green is the most visible against a night sky. The green lasers are also 35 times brighter than equivalently powered red lasers because humans are much more sensitive to green light, according to the Congressional Research Service. Last year, pilots of dozens of planes taking off and landing at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport reported being flashed with green lasers.

who need to be alerted to approaching traffic. Automakers and the National Federation of the Blind support the plan.
Car manufacturers have started developing artificial sounds that will be emitted from electric cars and future hybrids. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a research report last year that hybrid vehicles are twice as likely to be involved in pedestrian crashes at low speeds compared with conventional vehicles. The study looked at circumstances in which vehicles were slowing down or stopping, backing up or entering or departing a parking space. The government has been researching the safety risks that hybrids and electrics can pose for blind pedestrians for vehicles traveling at 20 mph or less. When a car accelerates beyond 20 mph, the friction between the tire and the road’s surface makes the vehicle louder. Nearly 4,100 pedestrians were killed and 59,000 were injured in 2009, according to the most recent data available.

Mortgage: Half of population Continued from D1 The National Association of Realtors already is running ads warning that tampering with the deduction would hurt “hardworking American families.” The ads note that 65 percent of taxpayers who take the deduction make less than $100,000. What the group doesn’t say is that about 75 percent of the $85.5 billion that people saved in taxes from the mortgage-interest deduction in 2008 went to individuals or couples making $100,000 or more, according to an analysis by the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation of the latest data available. Based on those numbers, taxpayers who took the mortgage deduction saved, on average, $2,330 in 2008. But the average savings were nearly triple that amount for those reporting incomes of at least $200,000. About half of all U.S. homeowners — and only one-quarter of all taxpayers — benefit from the mortgage-interest deduction. That’s because most people don’t have home loans or don’t pay enough mortgage interest to take advantage of the benefit. Also left out are many homeowners in cheaper housing markets, although people with pricier homes and larger mortgages — many of them are affluent younger Americans in coastal cities — reap a disproportionately large share of the tax savings. Couples filing joint federal returns last year needed mortgage interest and other deductions exceeding $11,400 to make it worthwhile to file itemized tax returns and take advantage

It’s been around since 1913, having survived the last big tax overhaul in 1986 and subsequent efforts. of this tax preference. The plan offered by President Obama’s debt commission would do away with itemized deductions altogether and allow every homeowner to receive a tax credit equal to 12 percent of interest paid on mortgages up to $500,000. In the vast majority of the country, that would mean a benefit for people who now receive nothing under the current system. Even in big coastal states, many people don’t live in high-priced housing markets.
Washington state For example, about onequarter of Washington state residents live in counties where home prices average $200,000 or less — and many others, especially older homeowners, have relatively small mortgages. The average nationwide mortgage loan as of October was $215,000, according to the Federal Housing Financing Agency. On the other hand, homeowners in wealthier areas such as Seattle-King County, where the median home price was $359,950 in November, are likely to feel the biggest pinch. If the debt panel’s proposal were adopted, the holder of a 3-year-old, $500,000 mortgage with an interest rate of 6.4 percent would pay interest payments of about $32,000. Based on rough estimates, mortgage deductions under the current system would save about $6,600 in tax, said James Nunns of
deduction would be disastrous, they said. Many experts, however, don’t believe an elimination of the mortgage deduction will hurt homeownership, although they say it is likely to influence the size of homes people buy — and eventually what builders put up — as well as other personal financial decisions. Analysts also note that other countries, such as Canada and Australia, have high home-ownership rates similar to the United States, now at 67 percent, without such housing-tax subsidies.
the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. The debt commission’s plan would slice that to about $3,800, although Nunns said the difference could be offset significantly by lower tax rates and other changes under the panel’s proposal.

Obama mixes Hawaii trip with duties Peninsula Daily News news services
The Associated Press
President Obama plays a round of golf at the Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
KAILUA, Hawaii — Almost immediately after he walked off Air Force One on Oahu early Thursday, a beaming President Obama had a green lei around his neck. It was the first sign that while the president will be working during his vacation, it’s not a “working vacation.” Administration aides emphasized that the president wanted real down time after the intense seven weeks since Election Day, and Obama started his 11-day trip with several hours of golf Thursday. The Obamas are renting a luxurious five-bedroom oceanfront home in Kailua, about 15 miles from Honolulu, far from tourists in the center of the city for the third straight Christmas. Dubbed the “Obama Winter White House” by the real-estate company that owns it, the “Plantation Estate” is listed on rental websites as costing $42,000 a week, although it’s unknown how much the Obamas are paying.
Biden: Gay marriage ‘inevitable’ ‘Don’t ask, tell’ repeal shows attitude change Peninsula Daily News news services
WASHINGTON — Attitudes toward same-sex marriage are “evolving,” and a national consensus favoring gay marriage is inevitable, Vice President Joseph Biden said Friday. Biden gave a somewhat more optimistic view than President Obama, who earlier in the week told reporters: “I think this is something that we’re going to debate, and I personally am going to continue to wrestle with, going forward.” Biden on Friday cited the administration’s successful push to repeal the military’s 17-year “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays and lesbians as a sign of the change in public attitudes. He saw the trend as lead-

“I think the same thing is happening across the country with regard to the issue of marriage,” Biden said. Congress approved overturning the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy last week with bipartisan support, and Obama signed the legislation Wednesday. But in letters to the troops after the new bill was signed into law, the four military service chiefs warned that
1 cigarette too many, top doc says The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Think the occasional cigarette won’t hurt? Even a bit of social smoking — or inhaling someone else’s secondhand smoke — could be enough to block your arteries and trigger a heart attack, says the newest surgeon general’s report on the killer the nation just can’t kick. Lung cancer is what people usually fear from smoking, and yes, that can take years to strike. But the new report says
there’s no doubt that tobacco smoke begins poisoning immediately — as more than 7,000 chemicals in each puff rapidly spread through the body to cause cellular damage in nearly every organ. “That one puff on that cigarette could be the one that causes your heart attack,” said Surgeon General Regina Benjamin. Or the one that triggers someone else’s: “I advise people to try to avoid being around smoking any way that you can,” she said.
About 443,000 Americans die from tobaccocaused illnesses every year. While the smoking rate has dropped dramatically since 1964, when the first surgeon general’s report declared tobacco deadly, progress has stalled in the past decade. About 46 million adults — one in five — still smoke, and tens of millions more are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke. The government had hoped to drop the smoking rate to 12 percent by this year, a goal not only missed but that’s now been put off to 2020.

The preliminary report indicates that a baby born in 2008 can expect to live to 77.8 years if current trends continue. That’s down a bit from an all-time high of 77.9 years for 2007.

Official: Thermos alert an attempt to think ahead The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — A top military official says new warnings about insulated beverage containers are an example of federal officials trying to anticipate terror tactics. Adm. James Winnefeld told The Associated Press that the Transportation Security Administration is “always trying to think ahead.” Winnefeld is the head of the U.S. Northern Command, which is charged with protecting the homeland. TSA officials had said that in coming days, passengers flying within and to the U.S. may notice additional security measures related to insulated beverage containers such as thermoses. Winnefeld says officials responsible for homeland security are always a bit more alert over the holiday season. He says there has been a lot of chatter online about potential terror activity, but nothing specific. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama’s counterterrorism chief, John Brennan, held an interagency conference call Friday to review steps the government is taking to ensure vigilance, including enhanced security measures and coordination with foreign partners. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and FBI Director Robert Mueller were among those on the call.
called the 2008 change minuscule and said it would take years of data to determine if that’s a trend. Life expectancy was down for both men and women. The gap between blacks and whites closed a little, to a 4.6-year difference in life expectancy; black men for the first time topped 70 years. Overall, women continue to live longer, until about 80, compared to 75 for men. What’s behind the slip in overall life expectancy isn’t known. “It’s something to keep our eyes on,” said Ken Thorpe, a health policy professor at Emory University in Atlanta. He suggested it could be related to rising obesity rates. The new report was released by the National Center for Health Statistics, which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. It’s based on nearly all the death certificates for that year; a final report will be issued later. “2008 was not much different from 2007,” said Minino. “Once you look under the hood, and look at the trends and the causes, you do find differences. “But overall, it wasn’t that different.”

White House spokesman Bill Burton said Obama would spend time “recharging his batteries, spending time with family and dealing with presidential duties.” To be sure, a president is never truly off. He has spoken to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev about the nuclearweapons treaty between the United States and Russia that the Senate ratified Wednesday, and Obama receives a daily briefing on national-security issues. The president also is preparing for a critical stage of his presidency in which he must work with a House now controlled by the Republicans and also start laying the groundwork for his re-election campaign in 2012. Aides said he is reading President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime, a biography by Lou Cannon, and a biography of President Clinton by Taylor Branch.

the ban was still in place, and that implementing the policy change in full was still months away. Finding consensus on gay marriage could take some time, despite Biden’s optimism. A Pew Research Center survey released in October, based on two polls taken over several months, found that 48 percent opposed allowing gays and lesbians to legally marry, while 42 percent were in favor. Still, a Pew analysis noted, “for the first time in 15 years, fewer than half oppose samesex marriage.” Obama himself has been circumspect on the issue. “At this point, what I’ve said is, is that my baseline is a strong civil union that provides them the protections and the legal rights that married couples have,” he said Wednesday. “And I think that’s the right thing to do. But I recognize that, from their perspective, that’s not enough.”
The first family celebrated Christmas with a small circle of friends and family, including some of Obama’s childhood friends and the president’s sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, who lives here on Oahu, the island where Obama was born and spent much of his childhood. The Obamas dined on steak, roasted potatoes, green beans and pie, and the sports-obsessed president got a chance to relax and watch some NBA basketball. The president’s Christmas was been far quieter than last year’s holiday, when a 23-year-old Nigerian man allegedly attempted to blow up a plane bound for Detroit. The incident raised questions about the nation’s terror readiness and consumed the rest of Obama’s vacation.

WASHINGTON — Economic reports suggest that employers are laying off fewer workers, businesses are ordering more computers and appliances, and consumers are spending with more confidence. Combined, the data confirm the economy is improving, and further job gains are expected in 2011. The economy’s outlook is brightening even though hiring has yet to strengthen enough to reduce an unemployment rate near 10 percent. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits fell the week of Dec. 13 to a seasonally adjusted 420,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. That’s the second-lowest level since July 2008.

Mobile technology has already started to sneak onto the floors of the House and the Senate. While the rules of the 111th Congress officially banned iPads and other devices from the floor, there has been a “wink and a nod” approach to a lawmaker who takes furtive glances at his BlackBerry, according to a senior Republican aide. That was obvious last week, when Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., was seen, head down, tapping out messages as he sat directly behind Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., who was giving his farewell address.

CITY OF SEQUIM NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING & PUBLIC HEARING Proposed amendments to the Sequim Municipal Code (SMC) Titles 18 & 20 (Zoning -Land Use and Development) Ordinance #2011-003 ************************************************************ Notice is hereby given that the City of Sequim proposes to amend Titles 18 & 20 of the Sequim Municipal Code. The purpose of this amendment is to resolve the issue of having standalone residential uses within the Mixed Use and Commercial zones and an evaluation of uses within each zoning district. Furthermore the proposed amendment provides a maximum residential density allowance in the Mixed Use and Commercial zones and would require neighborhood meetings for major Type B, C1 & C2 land use applications. Notice is hereby given that the City of Sequim Planning Commission will consider the proposed amendments to the Sequim Municipal Code, along with written and oral public comments, at a Public Meeting on: January 4, 2011 6:00 P.M. Sequim Transit Center 190 W. Cedar St. These items are considered legislative actions and must be approved by ordinance by the City Council. The Council will review a draft ordinance based on the Planning Commission recommendation, and written and oral public input at an Open Record Public Hearing to be held: January 24, 2011 6:00 P.M. Sequim Transit Center 190 W. Cedar St. The City Council will make a final determination on the proposed Sequim Municipal Code amendments following the public hearing. SEPA: Based on review of existing environmental documents, including the City of Sequim Comprehensive Plan EIS and environmental checklist prepared for these amendments, the City anticipates making a threshold determination that the amendments do not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement. The City anticipates that a Determination of Non Significant Impact (DNS) and Adoption of an Existing Environmental Document, i.e., the E.I.S. for the Sequim Comprehensive Plan adopted in 1996, will be adopted for these amendments. Interested parties may review the environmental documents at the City of Sequim Planning Department, (SEPA File #10/007). Future projects developed on properties affected by these additions will be subject to environmental review and documentation under state and local regulations based on the size and nature of the project. REVIEW OF MATERIALS: Written and oral comments may be presented at the Public Meeting and at the Public Hearing. All written comments must be received by close of business on January 3, 2011. The applications, plans and files for these items may be reviewed during normal working hours, at the City of Sequim Planning Department, 615 North Fifth Avenue. The SEPA checklist is also available on the Cityâ€™s Planning Department website: www.ci.sequim.wa.us/planning. PLANNING DEPT. CONTACT: Joseph D.

The area of operation for the Authority is the contiguous area of Clallam and Jefferson Counties. Section 8 PBV is a program established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and administered by HACC, which provides rental assistance to landlords on behalf of low-income people.

Rental assistance will remain with the unit for the term of the contract. The term of the contract shall be for a period of up to 15 years with an exclusive right by HACC to extend for additional five-year periods.

Kids seem to get more excited about eating and trying new food if they have helped to choose and cook it. Another suggestion is to exercise with your kids by encouraging them to create music and dance moves everyone can enjoy.

Our 7-year-old twins’ teacher took maternity leave for two months and now have a new teacher who feels the entire class is academically behind.

Peninsula Woman
This week’s question: What’s the best Christmas gift you have ever given?
“My husband and I helped out another family about 15 years ago. The family was having some real problems. We arranged to get them a Christmas tree, kids clothes and toys and a collection of food. That was my best present, as it was really meaningful to give where there was a need.”
“Giving my newborn daughter some educational books and toys that she would use to learn. I usually give other people clothes, but giving to my own daughter is special. She’s about 1½ now, and this Christmas, hopefully, she’ll probably remember most of what happens.”

And Mansfield hasn’t merely completed Wanted to volunteer the requirements to practice as an esthetician, cosmetologist and permanent-makeup For a long time, she’s wanted to volunteer at the artist. This past summer, she finished the Rose House, Healthy Families years-long program required for her license of Clallam County’s shelter as a permanent-cosmetics instructor, and is for women and children who now one of the few licensed teachers in have come out of abusive households. Washington state.
So this fall, Mansfield got in touch with Leslie Bond, Healthy Families’ domestic violence program manager, and the two worked out a plan. Mansfield, with help from Meagan, would give makeovers to women not only living at Rose House, but also to other Healthy Families clients embarking on new beginnings. “These would be clients who are going on job interviews, starting a new job, moving out of the shelter or just turning a new leaf in their life,” Bond said. She expressed gratitude for Meagan and Mansfield’s gifts — which, as it turned out, they gave on a Sunday shortly before Christmas. “I got to see one of the women,” Bond said. “She looked fabulous.”
Mansfield, for her part, is delighted to be using her skills to help women. But she’s more than a makeup artist; as a licensed permanent-cosmetics practitioner, she also uses intradermal pigment to cover unwanted marks and to repair “beauty treatments” that have deteriorated. “A lot of people don’t realize that permanent cosmetics have been created to help men and women with scars and tattoo removal,” Mansfield says. She uses colors, meticulously matched to her client’s natural skin tone, to conceal tattoos. One client, a 67-yearold man, recently had her cover up a small teardrop he’d had inked onto his cheek. “He’s pretty tickled,” to have it gone, she said.
Mansfield also has many clients whose permanentmakeup eyebrows or eyeliner has migrated or turned an unnatural color. To repair them, she uses organic pigments: the type that don’t change color. And for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures that changed the appearance of their breasts, she can use per manent cosmetics to re-create a natural look.
You’re not stuck
The message from Mansfield to those with tattoos or scarring: You are not stuck with this. And to those who have been burned by glycolic acid in attempts to remove a tattoo, she offers a gentler alternative: camouflaging it.

Permanent cosmetics are themselves like tattoos, as they use needles and pigment. But in Mansfield’s hands, they blend in, rather than make a big statement. “I’m conservative,” she says. “I don’t want people looking ‘decorated.’ I start out with the smallest amount of pigment, and then maybe add more in a second session,” to define brows, eyes or lips. There will be no Groucho Marx or Tammy Faye Bakker looks coming from her salon, Mansfield added with a smile. The treatments stimulate the body’s natural collagen, she adds. This brightens the skin, which Mansfield says can give it an effect similar to that of a laser treatment or even a face lift. Turn

Mansfield: 70% of her work is corrective Meagan Myrick has her eyebrows done by her mother, permanent-makeup artist Tonni Mansfield.
Continued from 5 Aside from the fact that permanent makeup is easier than plastic surgery, it’s considerably less costly: Eyeliner ranges from $200 to $375, lip liner $325 to $425, cheeks with blush are $350 and eyebrow design is $275. Prices are lower for corrective work on existing eyeliner or eyebrows. Concealing a scar or other mark starts at $50 per session, depending on the size of the mark. “I’ve seen a lot of people with scarring from laser treatments,” Mansfield says. “Seventy percent of what I do is corrective work,” as in fixing the effects of the old-style pigments containing iron Mansfield says. oxide. “You really need to be confident,” she says.

Tonni Mansfield designs her daughter Meagan Myrick’s permanent eyebrow makeup. “When I do something, I give it my all,” Mansfield says. The artistic aspect of permanent cosmetics, combined with the opportunity to use her gifts to help people feel more self-confident, make this work her passion.

Meanwhile Meagan, over at Patti’s, also knows the effect her handiwork can have. The best part about doing hair, she said, is simple: “Making people feel better.”
