County conducts probe of allegations by worker allegations, which I understand may include improper dumping of hazardous materials, theft of county property, theft of county time in the form of time spent on personal matters while on paid time, failure to wear protective equipment, and failure to provide proper notice of random drug tests,â€? the memo stated. â€œIf you have engaged or are engaging in any of the above activity, the union urges you to stop it immediately.â€? Taylor advised workers who may have engaged in such conduct to consider consulting an attorney before being interviewed by the county.
Union memo suggests theft, on-job procedure violations BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Clallam County is investigating a whistle-blowerâ€™s allegations of employee misconduct in the road department. County Administrator Jim Jones said the allegations, brought to county officials by a road department employee last month, are not criminal in nature.
He said the matter will likely be handled in-house. â€œI have no reason to believe anything rises to the level of an actual crime or a theft,â€? Jones said Thursday. â€œThereâ€™s none of that kind of stuff.â€? Teamsters Local 589 business representative Dan Taylor sent a Jan. 26 memo to road department employees saying the allegations were unproven. â€œThe county will soon start an investigation of multiple

Longtime PA gallery closing BY DIANE URBANI
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” After three decades of promoting local artists, the Waterfront Art Gallery is having its final reception tonight. The cooperative gallery at 120 W. First St. will shut down at the end of this month, said February featured artist Linda Parcell, who is president of the gallery board. â€œWe were hanging on by a thread,â€? she said. But the galleryâ€™s 18 members decided earlier this week to close the space, a showcase for photography, jewelry, glass-
work, paintings and sculpture. This is the second weekend of the month, the time when downtown Port Angelesâ€™ art galleries host receptions to bring artists and art lovers together, so the Waterfront Art Gallery will have one last party today from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. with hors dâ€™oeuvres, beverages and music by guitarist Andy Karney.
Art marked down Admission is free, and all art is marked down 30 percent. â€œWeâ€™re just not making it,â€? said member artist Irene Loghry.
Members paid a $50 monthly fee to exhibit work at the Waterfront Art Gallery, and the art there wasnâ€™t all highend. Prices range from $12 for Parcellâ€™s jewelry to $390 for one of the more costly paintings. Still, Loghry said, business got so slow that the cooperative couldnâ€™t continue. â€œWe all love this gallery. Everybody feels bad about it,â€? she added. Loghry, a painter, has lived in Port Angeles since 1954, so sheâ€™s seen wholesale changes in the downtown. TURN

Voters to decide pot legalization BY JONATHAN KAMINSKY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” Washington state lawmakers said Thursday that an initiative to legalize and regulate the recreational use of marijuana will be decided by voters. If passed, Initiative 502 would make Washington the first state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana and would place it at odds with federal law, which bans all use.

DISCOVERY BAY â€” A senior staff member of the Center for Whale Research has identified some of the orcas spotted cavorting in Discovery Bay earlier this week. Joe Dâ€™Amico â€” owner of Security Services Northwest Inc. â€” videotaped the orcas at 3:45 p.m. off the shores of â€œFort Discovery,â€?

Gary Busey files for bankruptcy COURT RECORDS SHOW Gary Busey has filed for bankruptcy and is listing more than $500,000 in estimated personal debts. Busey’s filing Tuesday in Los Angeles provides few details but includes more than a dozen Busey potential creditors. The actor and reality show star does not state a reason for the filing. His manager, Ron Sampson, wrote in a statement the filing provides Busey “a new and clear path” to personal and career success. The filing states the 67-year-old has less than $50,000 in assets. Busey has starred in numerous films including “Point Break” and “Lethal
Weapon” but has in recent years appeared more on reality shows such as “Celebrity Apprentice.” The filing was first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
Charges retired Country music singer Rodney Atkins will not be prosecuted on a misdemeanor domestic assault charge if he continues to meet court-ordered conditions. Atkins was arrested last November at his home in Brentwood after his wife, Tammy Jo Atkins, told police he attacked her and tried to suffocate her with a pillow after a night of drinking. A Tennessee judge Wednesday agreed to retire the charge, meaning it will be removed from Atkins’ record if he stays out of trouble for 11 months and 29 days and completes 30 hours of community service. Attorney Rose Palermo said Atkins passed court-ordered anger management, drug and alcohol evaluations. He did not

NELLO FERRARA, 93, lived a sweet life. The candy company executive who brought the world Lemonheads and Atomic Fire Balls routinely serenaded the restaurants where he dined and held mandatory family dinners every Sunday, said his son, Salvatore Ferrara. Mr. Ferrara died Friday at his home in the Chicago suburb of River Forest surrounded by his family. The Forest Park-based Ferrara Pan company was started in 1908, and Mr. Ferrara took it over from his father decades ago. The company, which also makes Red Hots and Boston Baked Beans, produces 1 million pound of candy a day, Salvatore Ferrara said. Salvatore Ferrara, the company’s current president and CEO, said his birth inspired his father to invent the Lemonhead candy. “He always claimed that when I was born, that I came out of my mother sideways . . . and my head was shaped like a lemon,” he said. The Atomic Fire Ball was invented after Mr. Ferrara’s time in Japan during World War II.
_________ JOHN T. SARGENT, 87, who as president and later chairman of Doubleday & Co. oversaw its expansion from a modestsize family-controlled book publisher to an industry giant with interests extending into broadcasting and baseball, died Sun-
day at his home in Manhattan, N.Y. The death was confirmed by his son, John T. Sargent Jr., the chief executive of Macmillan, the publishing company. Mr. Sargent, who was already working for Doubleday when he married Neltje Doubleday, granddaughter of the company’s founder, Frank Nelson Doubleday, in 1953, was named president and chief executive in 1961. At the time, the company was largely a trade book publisher; it also ran a book club, a New York bookstore and a modest printing concern. Over the next 17 years, in partnership with Nelson Doubleday Jr., grandson of the founder, Mr. Sargent worked to expand all of those enterprises, largely succeeding in spite of a divorce in 1965 and an insurrection by a minority of the company’s shareholders, led by his former wife, who wanted it to go public. By 1979, the year after he left the presidency and

It was operating more than a dozen book clubs, including the mammoth Literary Guild; more than two dozen Doubleday bookshops across the country; and four book printing and binding companies.

time to consider a 2005 Pardon and Parole Board recommendation to commute the sentence to life in prison without parole. Allen’s attorneys said he was mentally impaired at the time of the slaying and is insane. The board voted 4-1 in 2005 to commute Allen’s sentence to life, and a judge issued a stay of execution before then-Gov. Brad Henry could act.

States pen $25 billion foreclosure agreement 1 million homeowners to get mortgage relief BY DEREK KRAVITZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — U.S. states reached a landmark $25 billion deal Thursday with the nation’s biggest mortgage lenders over foreclosure abuses that occurred after the housing bubble burst. The deal requires five of the largest banks to reduce loans for about 1 million households at risk of foreclosure. The lenders also will send checks of $2,000 to about 750,000 Americans who were improperly foreclosed upon. The banks will have three years to fulfill the terms of the deal. It’s the biggest settlement involving a single industry since a 1998 multistate tobacco deal. Officials announced at a news conference that 49 states had joined the settlement. Oklahoma announced a separate deal with the five banks. The settlement ends a painful chapter that emerged from the financial crisis, when home values sank and millions edged toward foreclosure. Many companies processed foreclosures without verifying documents. Some employees signed papers they hadn’t read or used fake signatures to speed foreclosures — an action known as robo-signing. Under the deal, the states said they won’t pursue civil charges related to these types of abuses. Homeowners can still sue lenders in civil court on their own, and federal and state authorities can pursue criminal charges. “There were many small wrongs that were done here,” said U.S. Housing and Urban Development Sec-

We will be aggressive about going after claims elsewhere.” Reducing loan principal will help some homeowners who are current on their payments but are “underwater,” meaning they owe more than their homes are worth. But consumer advocates and housing activists said the deal is flawed because it covers only a fraction of at-risk homeowners. Critics note that the settlement will apply only to privately held mortgages issued from 2008 through 2011. Banks own about half of all U.S. mortgages — roughly 30 million loans. Those owned by mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not covered by the deal.

Pentagon changes course on women-in-combat rules BY LOLITA C. BALDOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon unveiled plans Thursday to allow women to serve in thousands of military jobs closer to the front lines, reflecting the realities of the last decade of war. Defense officials said the new rules still will mean that woman are barred from serving as infantry, armor and special operations forces — considered the most dangerous combat jobs. But the changes will open the door for more opportunities and promotions for women by allowing them to perform jobs they already do but in battalions,
which are closer to the fighting and once considered too dangerous for women. A 1994 combat exclusion policy bans women from being assigned to ground combat units below the brigade level. A brigade is roughly 3,500 troops split into several battalions of about 800 soldiers each. Historically, brigades were based farther from the front lines and often include support staff, while the battalions are usually in closer contact with the enemy. In the past decade, the necessities of war propelled women into jobs such as medics and intelligence officers, and they were sometimes attached — but not
formally assigned — to battalions. So while a woman couldn’t go out on patrol, she could fly the helicopter supporting the unit. The officials said the new rules will allow women to work in those jobs at the battalion level. “We believe that it’s very important to explore ways to offer more opportunities to women in the military,” Pentagon press secretary George Little said Thursday. “This review has been thorough and extensive,” with input from all branches of the military. Little said that even after the new policy takes effect, the Pentagon will continue to search for ways to open up additional positions to women in the military.

World: Mexican army finds tons of methamphetamine
THREE CANADIAN FAMILY members trying to cross the Pacific in a sailboat are safe Thursday after being thrown overboard following an encounter with rough seas that battered and disabled their vessel, leaving them “adrift with no hope of survival” hundreds of miles from Hawaii. A father, his 9-year-old son and one of the boy’s uncles, who were attempting their first voyage across the ocean, ran into strong wind that snapped their mast and choppy water that overheated their engine. They contacted the Coast Guard, which directed a massive cargo ship to the stranded 38-foot vessel.
MORE AND MORE U.S. adults are being told by their physician to exercise, says a government survey. Nearly 33 percent of adults who saw a doctor in the previous year said they were told to exercise. That was up from about 23 percent in 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. The report found more women got that advice than men. Diabetics were likely to get the advice, but cancer patients were not. Most surprising, in 2000, only 15 percent of those 85 and olderwere told by doctors to exercise. By 2010, almost 30 percent got that recommendation.
ARMORED CAR GUARD Edward John Maher, suspected of driving off with a fortune worth about $1.5 million back in 1993, was captured in rural Missouri, where he worked as a cable guy and was raising a son, who apparently knew nothing of the heist. After nearly two decades as a fugitive, he was arrested Wednesday in an apartment in the tiny town of Ozark. Maher is accused of driving off while a fellow security guard made a delivery to a bank in Suffolk, England. Police were led by a tip to Maher, who was being held Thursday by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on immigration and weapons violations.
MEXICAN TROOPS HAVE made a historic seizure of 15 tons of pure methamphetamine in the western state of Jalisco, an amount equivalent to half of all meth seizures worldwide in 2009. The sheer scale of the bust announced late Wednesday drew expressions of amazement from meth experts. The haul could have supplied 13 million doses worth more than $4 billion on U.S. streets. “This could potentially put a huge dent in the supply chain in the U.S.,” said U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Rusty Payne. “When we’re taking this much out of the supply chain, it’s a huge deal.”

She and her family will get some help this weekend in the form of the third annual Port Angeles High School Talent Show. Twenty-one acts will take the stage at 7 p.m. today at the Port Angeles High School auditorium to raise funds to help Frazier pay her soaring medical expenses. â€œIâ€™m lucky I have insurance, but even with it, the bills are crazy high,â€? Frazier said. Tickets for the talent show cost $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 12, or $20 for a family of four. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a silent auction of 56 items donated by local businesses. Frazier was in California, where she had the surgery, on Thursday, and it was unknown if she would be able to return home in time for the fundraiser, Port Angeles School District
spokeswoman Tina SmithOâ€™Hara said Thursday. Frazier has worked as a classroom aide in â€œmedically fragileâ€? special-education classes at Jefferson Elementary and Stevens Middle schools since 2007. She has been married to John Frazier for 23 years. They have four children and a 4-year-old granddaughter. Mariah, 17, is a junior at Port Angeles High School, Sierra works as a para-educator at Port Angeles High School, Rylan lives and works in Port Angeles, and Ross, 30, lives in Seattle. Frazier has been through virtually every kind of cancer therapy there is and finally has hope that she is gaining the upper hand in her battle for life. In January 2011, she thought she had won her battle against breast cancer without having to resort to a mastectomy. Frazier had nothing but praise for local cancer care centers, where she had
received the treatment that put her cancer into remission in 2006. However, cancer wasnâ€™t done with her. â€œIt came back with a vengeance,â€? Frazier said. She began having renewed symptoms in the first month of 2011, but the cancer wasnâ€™t diagnosed until June, she said.
Growing rapidly Frazier was told her cancer had returned, was growing rapidly and would require a double mastectomy. Before starting a new round of chemotherapy to prepare for the mastectomy, she took a trip to her motherâ€™s home in California. There, at a beauty salon while talking to another customer, she learned of a new treatment at a local clinic that was showing promise. â€œThey do things in California they donâ€™t do here,â€? Frazier said. At the time, Frazier
thought the treatment she had scheduled would be sufficient, but she kept the contact information â€” just in case. When she returned home to prepare for the surgery, she was told the tumor had spread, attached itself to her chest wall and was inoperable. Frazier, a self-described fighter with no intention of giving in to the cancer, said she switched her chemotherapy regimen three times, but nothing was working. â€œI thought, â€˜Iâ€™m on my own with this,â€™â€? she said. So she checked into California-based Cancer Care Clinics, associated with the University of California, Los Angeles Oncology Research Network, where she initially was given a 40 percent to 50 percent chance of beating the cancer. Frazierâ€™s treatment includes a combination of three traditional cancer therapies â€” radiation,
hyperthermia and chemotherapy â€” which, when used together, her doctors in California believe can be more effective. The combined treatment is so new it is available at only three clinics in the U.S., she said. There was no guarantee the therapy would work, Frazier said.
Better chances After two weeks, her doctor told her the cancer was responding and that her chances had increased to 80 percent or 90 percent. She returned to chemotherapy and added intravenous vitamin C therapy. The tumor continued shrinking, and last week, she returned to California for surgery. The surgery is thought to be successful at this point, Smith-Oâ€™Hara said.

81-year-old Sequim man in 3-car collision dies BY TOM CALLIS PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€” Sequim resident Robert P. Gowing died Sunday at Harborview Medical Center, three days after he was seriously injured in a vehicle wreck south of Bellevue. The State Patrol, which confirmed the death, said the 81-year-old man was injured in a three-car collision at the Interstate 90/Interstate 405 interchange Feb. 2. The collision occurred when the car
he was traveling in rear-ended another vehicle while exiting I-90. The driver of the vehicle, Clover B. Gowing, Robert Gowingâ€™s wife, was cited for following too closely. The second car collided with a third vehicle. Clover Gowing, 76, was treated at the scene. The other two drivers were not injured.

Students build bridges to break them PA team to beat at annual engineering competition BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
at the top prize with an arched, cantilevered bridge. â€œItâ€™s a naturally strong shape,â€? Alderson said. Junior Kelley Mayer, 15, who took seventh place in 2011, is also making another attempt at beating a group of home-schoolers from South King County â€” the only team that consistently scores higher than Port Angeles. The contest, sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers, pairs students with working civil engineers to learn the basics of engineering, designing bridges that are KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS judged equally on their strength and aesthetic Port Angeles High School senior Lance Alderson, 18, adds trusses value. Wednesday to a Popsicle stick bridge being built for a bridge-building
PORT ANGELES â€” Three months of planning and construction, hundreds of Popsicle sticks and untold hours of work will end with the sound of splintering wood Saturday at the Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition in Seattle as five Port Angeles High School students test the bridges they designed and built. At stake is a $500 scholarship and defending the schoolâ€™s tradition of consistently placing in the top three for the past 13 years. Port Angeles has a reputation of being a school to beat at the competition, said Derek Johnson, adviser and physics instructor. Strength and beauty
3rd strongest Last year, Port Angeles student Rachel Lindquistâ€™s bridge was third-strongest in the state and carried 758 pounds, he said. Bridges in the contest, which weigh less than a pound, have held nearly 1,000 pounds of weight on a 4-inch-by-4-inch area before breaking. This year, 18-year-old senior Lance Alderson, whose bridge took fourth place just behind Lindquist, is making one last attempt
The bridges will be displayed, judged for aesthetic value, then tested with a hydraulic testing machine at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. Civil engineers Chris Hartman of Zenovic & Associates; Gene Unger, a former Clallam County engineer; and Joe Donisi, Clallam County assistant engineer, have visited the school once a week since November to mentor students interested in building bridges for the contest and will choose three of the five
competition this weekend in Seattle. bridges to enter in the contest. The other two bridges from Port Angeles will be tested but will not be a part of the official contest.
Scholarship awarded The top Port Angeles bridge builder will get a $500 college scholarship funded by a consortium of Port Angeles-area engineers. Each year, the rules for height, length and required design elements change,
just as conditions change from one project to another, so a winning bridge from one year cannot return to win again. Some students excel at the design phase, others in construction, Unger said. A well-designed bridge can be ruined with poor construction, while a lesser design can be strong with solid construction, the engineers said. â€œOne bad joint, and itâ€™s done,â€? Unger said. â€œItâ€™s a blend of technical and artistic natures,â€?
Hartman said. â€œWe try to mirror the real-world design process. The public is not happy if they have a strong bridge, but itâ€™s ugly,â€? Unger said.
Early testing was successful, giving the first-year entrant encouragement. â€œOne truss held 120 pounds,â€? Bozich said. However, a badly placed support structure took all the weight off her solid trusses, and Wednesday, Bozich said she will be happy if the bridge holds a mere 120 to 150 pounds of pressure before it breaks. Fellow freshman James Gallagher, 13, also had difficulties with his first bridge effort. Gallagher said he tried to keep his design simple, but it didnâ€™t execute as well in reality as it did on paper. He guessed his bridge would hold less than 120 pounds. Many of the students were working on their second or third design. The first design is often more of a fantasy, sometimes overly complicated or fancy, then reality sets in, Gallagher said. Freshman Jeremy Choe, 15, had to start from scratch after completing his first bridge, which was solid but failed to meet height guidelines. His second design, which still needed to lose 6 grams of weight to meet the rules, was being glued together with barely 72 hours remaining before the competition.
First-year bridge builders learned some hard lessons. Freshman Zoe Bozich, 15, put together a solid________ looking bridge with a peaked center-point and Reporter Arwyn Rice can be more than a dozen support reached at 360-417-3535 or at arwyn. email@example.com. trusses.
Quinault tribe closes beaches to public Man dies from boat blast injuries PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES
TAHOLAH â€” The Quinault tribe has closed all beaches along its reservation in southwest Jefferson County and northwestern Grays Harbor County to public access, suspending the tribeâ€™s existing beach pass system. The decision to close the beaches was made after a Quinault Business Committee meeting last month in which concerns were raised about too much unauthorized use of the beaches, which previously required either individual or group permits for access.
A notice in the tribeâ€™s newspaper, The Nugguam, said a motion was made to rescind all existing passes and schedule a working session to reform the pass policy. Also, signs will be posted at each beach point of entry to state the access â€œis granted to Quinault tribal members only.â€? A tribal official confirmed the closure but would not comment publicly about it.
acquired. Quinault beach lands extend up to the ordinary high water mark of the Pacific Ocean. Beaches extend from the Moclips River north to Queets. Before the tribe took control of the beaches in the 1970s, some of the areas, such as the beach at Point Grenville, were popular with surfers, and the tribe Pass access since 1969 had trouble with litter.
According to the tribeâ€™s website, the beaches officially have been closed to the public since 1969 unless a pass was approved or

9-1-1 dispatcher criticized for handling of phone call THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE â€” The social worker who was supposed to supervise a visit between Josh Powell and his young sons said Powell told his oldest boy he had a â€œsurpriseâ€? for him moments before attacking and killing the children. Elizabeth Griffin-Hall said in an interview to air on ABCâ€™s â€œ20/20â€? on Friday that Powell slammed the door on her after he had the children inside the house Sunday.

house outside Puyallup, about 35 miles from Seattle. Josh Powell lost custody of the boys last fall, after his father, with whom they then lived, was arrested in a child pornography and voyeurism investigation. Griffin-Hall said Charlie and Braden loved being with their father. â€œOne of them said what he wanted to do was go home and live with his daddy,â€? she told ABC, adding that the boys would â€œlight upâ€? during visits with Josh Powell. After he got the boys inside and locked the door, Griffin-Hall called 9-1-1 and her supervisor to tell them what was going on.
Authorities said Powell used a hatchet on his children, then set a house fire that killed J. Powell them all. Powellâ€™s wife, Susan, vanished in Utah two years ago.

MONTESANO â€” Hours after releasing a video that shows a person of interest in the case of the 2009 disappearance of a girl in McCleary, the Grays Harbor Sheriffâ€™s Office said it has located two women they wanted to talk to. Undersheriff Rick Scott said his agency has been able to find the two sisters, who are local to McCleary, and will interview them soon. The Sheriffâ€™s Office released a video as part of the continuing investigation into the disappearance of Lindsay Baum, who was 10 when she vanished while walking home from a friendâ€™s house. The convenience store video shows a man whoâ€™s been labeled a person of interest buying items. Scott said the man had denied previously being in town the day Baum disappeared. Authorities have already searched his business and home.

A Clark County sheriffâ€™s spokesman, Sgt.

Neiman said officers had gotten several people out of the house safely and believed a man remained inside. He said itâ€™s not clear when or how the man got out, but it was unlikely he slipped through the SWAT teamâ€™s line. Nobody was injured or wounded. No charges were immediately filed. Neiman said detectives will review the case.

KALAMA â€” Workers have jackhammered out tons of glass that hardened in an electrical furnace after it failed at a wine bottle plant at Kalama. The old furnace has been removed, and the Bennu Glass Co. is installing a new furnace that will be fueled by liquid oxygen to heat molten glass to 2,800 degrees. The Daily News reported the plant should be ready to restart in July, producing 100 million bottles a year for West Coast wineries. The plant at the Port of Kalama was crippled by a molten glass leak and shut down in 2009. Bennu bought the plant last year at auction. The Associated Press

L Pod, with 42 members, is the largest resident pod. J pod has an estimated 26 members and tends to stay in its home waters year-round, the center said.
The other two pods travel farther afield. During the winter, members of K and L pods have been seen far west of Vancouver Island and as far south as Monterey, Calif.
Each animal individual Orcas are identified individually largely by their dorsal fins and their saddle patches, which are unique on each animal.
Dorsal fins vary in terms of shape, size and scars, while the coloring and shape of the saddle patches differ. In addition to the Southern Resident Community, there is a Northern Resident Community that centers around northern British Columbia; a Transient Community, found in small groups from Mexico to the Bering Sea; and an Offshore Community, most often
seen in the Pacific Ocean 15 to 25 miles out at sea off Vancouver Island and the Queen Charlottes, the center said. Within each pod, families form into sub-pods, the center said, which are centered around older females, the children remaining close to their mothers for life. For more information, visit the centerâ€™s website.
Pot: Initiative automatically will go to the ballot CONTINUED FROM A1 Rep. Sam Hunt, D-Olympia, who chairs the House State Government & Tribal Affairs Committee that was considering the initiative, said the Legislature would not act on it, meaning it will instead automatically appear on the November ballot. â€œWe will have more opportunities on the campaign trail this year to discuss this issue,â€? Hunt said.
Because the measure proposes new taxes on marijuana production and consumption, the Legislature would need a two-thirds majority to pass it.
Initiative certified The initiative was certified by the Secretary of Stateâ€™s Office last month after pro-legalization campaigners turned in more than the 241,153 necessary valid signatures.

Speaking at a joint House and Senate work session Thursday, backers of the measure said it would allow the state to regulate marijuana use, raise money through taxes on marijuana and squeeze the powerful drug cartels controlling the black market. â€œLocking people up and putting handcuffs on them is not the way to resolve our societyâ€™s issues with regard to marijuana,â€? said John McKay, a former U.S. attor-
ney for Seattle who has become an outspoken advocate for marijuana legalization. Charles Mandigo, the former head of the Seattle FBI office, also spoke in favor of the measure. â€œIt is the money, not the drugs, that drive these criminal organizations and street gangs,â€? Mandigo said. â€œTake away the money, and you take away the criminal element.â€?
McKay and Mandigo conceded that getting criminals out of the marijuana business would take time.
Fears of teen use Opponents said legalization would likely increase marijuana use by teenagers. They argued that a better alternative would be pressuring the federal government to change marijuanaâ€™s designation from a
Schedule One to a Schedule Two drug, meaning it would still be classified as having a high potential for abuse but also would be recognized as having legitimate medical uses. â€œIf we start with the pharmaceutical end and move forward from there, I think what a great start weâ€™ve already done,â€? said Thurston County Sheriff John Snaza, who spoke against the initiative.

Floating home moored at Point Hudson BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — A 400,000-pound floating home was moored in Point Hudson Marina early Thursday morning after it was painstakingly moved from the shipyard where it was built. The 2,000-square-foot luxury floating home — the first built by Port Townsend’s Little & Little Construction — is now awaiting finishing touches to its interior before it is towed east to Seattle’s Lake Union. Under a full moon Wednesday night, Carlsborg-based Monroe House Moving’s crew raced to beat the incoming tide, successfully moving the structure into the mud flats of Port Townsend Bay. From its Port of Port Townsend shipyard construction site, the home was slowly rolled, inch by inch and foot by foot, about 150 yards into the bay during outgoing tides Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
Crowds of between 50 and 100 spectators, from babies to seniors, gathered on both sides of the home as it was moved down to the shoreline while the tide went out.
Specially designed The moving crew used a specially designed 48-wheel system brought in by D.B. Davis LLC of Everett. The system, mounted on steel beams under the home’s 6-foot-thick concrete float encasing a 500-pound Styrofoam block, allowed it to move at a safe crawl. Trucks equipped with winches pulled the home forward, while small tractors were used to push the home into the final stretch of mud flat. The moving crew built two steel ramps on wooden blocks down the beach to the high-tide line. Each ramp accommodated a row of dual tire rollers, 24 to each side. As the rolling structure reached the mud flat, the crew used a forklift to place
Marina, where it was moored near the marina’s mouth. John Nesset’s Vessel Assist towed the home at about 5 a.m. Thursday using two tugboats. It was towed to Point Hudson Marina, where it was moored in one of the larger slips near the marina’s entrance. Bob Little, president of Little & Little Construction who stayed aboard the home Wednesday night and early Thursday with his son, Gage, and grandson, Isaac, during the move and water tow, said the home will get final interior touches over the coming JEFF CHEW/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS week at Point Hudson.

No action taken Thursday on Fort Worden proposal BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — The state Parks and Recreation Commission delayed action Thursday on a proposed resolution that would give the Port Townsend Public Development Authority ownership and management of Fort Worden State Park as a Lifelong Learning Center. “That was a very recent proposal, and the commission isn’t going to consider that today,” said State Parks spokeswoman Virginia Painter. Instead, a public hearing on the proposal to transfer
ownership and management of Fort Worden to the PDA, and possible action, is planned at the commission’s next meeting at 9 a.m. March 29 at Fort Worden State Park, Painter said. PDA ownership would open financing avenues with banks and other partners that could help pay for the park’s continued operation, maintenance and management and offers greater financial incentives than a long-term lease, Dave Robison, PDA interim director, has said. Robison and PDA board Chairwoman Cindy Hill Finnie attended the commission
meeting Thursday in Tumwater. A special Fort Worden PDA board meeting open to the public has been called for 8:30 a.m. today in Building 204 at Fort Worden State Park to discuss the proposal further. Robison will talk about the Fort Worden PDA proposal at a Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon at noon Monday at the Elks Lodge, 555 Otto St. in Port Townsend. Under the proposal, Fort Worden would remain a park but would no longer be called a state park. Painter earlier this week
said if the PDA completes a business plan showing that it can successfully fund the park and if it agrees to certain deed restrictions and conditions as required by the commission, Fort Worden State Park could be transferred to the PDA to operate by July 1, 2013.
Business plan Robison said the PDA already has a detailed business plan in development. A public development authority is an independent government entity, legally independent from the jurisdiction that created it — in
this case, the city of Port Townsend. Examples of PDAs in Washington state are the Pike Place Market and the Seattle Art Museum. The Port Townsend PDA proposal was prompted by Kate Burke losing the job she has held since 2002 as manager of Fort Worden, Fort Townsend and the Rothschild House state parks. Burke was displaced by a new director, Allison Alderman, a 21-year State Parks employee who “bumped” Burke because of her greater seniority after losing her job as region operations man-
ager in the State Parks Northwest Region Office. Robison said the PDA board would consider bringing Burke onboard for her institutional knowledge. He said Burke was instrumental in the eightyear process that led to the establishment of the park as a lifelong learning center, which would provide outdoor space for recreational and educational opportunities and a variety of programs and classes.

TAX TIME CASH COMES FROM UNEXPECTED SOURCE:
TRADING IN YOUR OLD CAR
ax time can mean a much-needed cash “bonus” for many people. But for some people, like business owners, it can mean the opposite. Many business owners feel the pinch around tax time because in good times or bad Uncle Sam always gets his piece of the pie. Some local business owners look for creative, ethical ways to deal with tax time trauma. Local Car Dealer Mark Ostroot, from Price SuperStore is one of the most innovative when it comes to finding solutions that benefit his customers at the same time. Tax time is no different. “It’s tax time and my accountant said I need to reduce my tax burden. So I’m going to OVER PAY for your old car so I can stock my lot with traded in vehicles,” said Mark Ostroot, General Manager of Price SuperStore.
“Here’s my thought: I’d rather give money to my customers than give it to the government,” exclaimed Ostroot. “So, if I over pay for trades now, I may lower my tax burden in the future.” Ostroot continues, “Here’s the deal, I’m willing to pay you up to $4,297.00 more for your old car than it’s actually worth, no matter where you bought the car, just to satisfy my accountant.” “I’m calling this my EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program. You’ve probably filed an EZ form in the past to get your cash back faster. Well, I’m using my EZ Trade Program to make it simple for you to trade in the old car you hate driving and get a tax time reward of up to $4,297.00 more than it’s actually worth.”
THE EZ WAY TO GET A FATTER RETURN
TAX TIME MAKES CREDIT APPROVAL EZ (ER)
“If you don’t have a trade-in, to help you minimize the tax season, I’ll double your tax refund up to $2,500.00, so you can own the nicer, newer car you’ve always wanted today,” explained Ostroot.
“For The People® Credit Approval Process is perfect if you have had credit problems in the past,” said Ostroot. “Using my program and your refund together could actually make it easier for you to get approved this month!”
Ostroot told us that he doesn’t care where or when you bought the car you trade in. He also doesn’t care whether it’s a lease or a loan or how many payments you have left. He wants to buy as many vehicles as he can from local residents and he is willing to pay more than the vehicle is actually worth because of the effect it could have on his tax liability down the road.
Price SuperStore has a special process to work with customers who have credit challenges They work with many lenders who specialize in approving customers with below average credit scores and have specially trained staff members who know how to put the best deal together in these more challenging financial situations. This means that Price SuperStore is able to help some people who have been turned down at other dealerships actually drive the nicer, newer car they need and want.
Customers will get up to $4,297.00 more for any car they bring in, which can make your tax time returns much greater than they would be otherwise. Ostroot asks, “What will you buy with all the extra money?”
DON’T BE DEPENDENT ON DEDUCTIONS
THERE IS A TAX TIME REWARD DEADLINE
and we plan on coming as close to that goal as we possibly can.” “We help a lot of people with tough credit situations every single month. If there’s a way to get you approved, we’re going to go to the ends of the earth to find it. We don’t give up here. It’s our mission to help people drive a nicer, newer car. I don’t believe anyone should drive a car they hate,” Ostroot boasted.
Ostroot revealed to us that his customers don’t have to be dependent on deductions. Customers who take advantage of his EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program will get their tax time reward directly from the dealership even before most people see a dollar from the government. Price SuperStore will pay $4,297.00 more for your old car than it’s actually worth: t/PNBUUFSXIFSFZPVCPVHIUUIFDBS t/PNBUUFSIPXNBOZNJMFTJUIBTPOJU t/PNBUUFSJGJUTBMFBTFPSBMPBO t/PNBUUFSXIBUDPOEJUJPOJUTJO Overpaying for trade-ins will create additional expense for the dealership thereby reducing their future tax liability, while at the same time helping buyers get a great deal on a nicer, newer car today. Plus, Price SuperStore will be doubling tax refunds up to $2,500.00 if you don’t have a trade, which can be applied as a down payment on a nicer, newer car. This is perfect for anyone who wants to lower their monthly payments and can also help credit challenged customers get approved when they previously could not get they financing they need to drive a nicer, newer car.
Purchase at retail price over $9999, rebates reassigned to dealership, complete details posted at dealership, not compatible with other offers or discounts. On Approval of Credit. All Sales are plus tax, license and a negotiable $150 documentation fee. See Dealer for details. Ad expires 2/29/12.
The deadline for taking advantage of Ostroot’s EZ Trade Tax Time Rewards Program and getting more for your trade and the expanded refund is February 29th or when his accountant decides enough is enough, whichever comes first. To reserve a VIP appointment with a Price SuperStore financing and transportation expert please call (360) 457-3333 right now or visit the dealership in person today across from Frugal’s in Port Angeles!

On the stump about logging’s remains BY
“I EXPECT YOU’LL want to get rid of that, eh?” Bill, the excavator operator said, pointing at a Douglas-fir stump approximately 6 feet tall and 4 feet in diameter. “Please Luckett leave it. I’m fond of my oldgrowth stumps,” I said, “and I’m particularly fond of Roberto — that one there.” “Roberto?” I had hired Bill to clear and level an area so I could expand my garden plot out of the woods surrounding my home in South Jefferson County, near the Duckabush River. My property was clearcut in the early 1930s.
POINT OF VIEW Now, everywhere you look, old-growth stumps, like cloaked druids with mossy topknots, punctuate the understory of my mature, second-growth conifer forest Increasing my garden space was a tough choice. My forest feeds my soul. I strive to keep my carbon footprint light upon the land. But I also want to feed my body healthy food, mostly fresh fruits and vegetables, mostly organic. And in these troubled financial times, my homegrown crops keep my grocery bill in sync with my pocketbook. As a measure of compensation to Mother Nature, prior to excavation I dug up dozens of wild huckleberry and rhododendrons and planted them elsewhere.
Kahlil Gibran, the LebaneseAmerican poet, wrote: “If I had two loaves of bread, I would sell one to buy hyacinth, for it will feed my soul.” I say: If I had two hyacinths, I would sell one to buy zucchini. “You gave that stump a name like ‘Roberto’?” Bill said, a ghost of a smile tickling the corners of his mouth. “Why not Stumpy? Or Grumpy? Or maybe, Lumpy”? “This isn’t one of the seven dwarfs,” I said. “I call it Roberto after a skilled and compassionate nurse who tended to me in a veterans hospital many years ago after I had suffered head trauma.” Bill scrutinized the stump. “On a symbolic level,” I said, “this stump used to be a whole tree that also suffered a trauma, yet it still has something to contribute. “As a nurse stump, it’s an excellent caregiver for both

Tales from the kitchen table THIS IS A really old story, but let me tell you anyway. When I was first married, my mother-in-law sat down at her kitchen table and told me about the day she went to confession and told the priest that she and her husband were using birth control. She had several young chil- Gail dren, times were Collins difficult — really, she could have produced a list of reasons longer than your arm. “You’re no better than a whore on the street,” said the priest. This was, as I said, a long time ago. It’s just an explanation of why the bishops are not the only Roman Catholics who are touchy about the issue of contraception. These days, parish priests tend to be much less judgmental about parishioners who are on the pill — the military was not the first institution in this country to make use of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” system. “In most parishes in the United States, we don’t find them preaching about contraception,” said Jon O’Brien of Catholics for Choice. “And it’s not as though in the Mass you have a questionand-answer period.” You have heard, I’m sure, that the Catholic bishops are in an uproar over an Obama administration rule that would require Catholic universities and hospitals to cover contraceptives in their health care plans. The Republican presidential candidates are roaring right behind. Mitt Romney claimed the White House was trying to “impose a secular vision on Americans who believe that they should not have their religious freedom taken away.”
Catholic doctrine prohibits women from using pills, condoms or any other form of artificial contraception. A much-quoted study by the Guttmacher Institute found that virtually all sexually active Catholic women of childbearing age have violated the rule at one point or another, and that more than two-thirds do so consistently. Here is the bishops’ response to that factoid: “If a survey found that 98 percent of people had lied, cheated on their taxes, or had sex outside of marriage, would the government claim it can force everyone to do so?” OK. Moving right along. The church is not a democracy and majority opinion really doesn’t matter. Catholic dogma holds that artificial contraception is against the law of God. The bishops have the right — a right guaranteed under the First Amendment — to preach that doctrine to the faithful. They have a right to preach it to everybody. Take out ads. Pass out leaflets. Put up billboards in the front yard. The problem here is that they’re trying to get the government to do their work for them. They’ve lost the war at home, and they’re now demanding help from the outside. And they don’t seem in the mood to compromise. Church leaders told The National Catholic Register that they regarded any deal that would allow them to avoid paying for contraceptives while directing their employees to other places where they could find the coverage as a nonstarter. This new rule on contraceptive coverage is part of the health care reform law, which was designed to finally turn the United States into a country where everyone has basic health coverage. In a sane world, the government would be running the whole health care plan, the employers
would be off the hook entirely and we would not be having this fight at all. But members of Congress — including many of the very same people who are howling and rending their garments over the bishops’ plight — deemed the current patchwork system untouchable. The churches themselves don’t have to provide contraceptive coverage. Neither do organizations that are closely tied to a religion’s doctrinal mission. We are talking about places like hospitals and universities that rely heavily on government money and hire people from outside the faith. We are arguing about whether women who do not agree with the church position, or who are often not even Catholic, should be denied health care coverage that everyone else gets because their employer has a religious objection to it. If so, what happens if an employer belongs to a religion that forbids certain types of blood transfusions? Or disapproves of any medical intervention to interfere with the working of God on the human body? Organized religion thrives in this country, so the system we’ve worked out seems to be serving it pretty well. Religions don’t get to force their particular dogma on the larger public. The government, in return, protects the right of every religion to make its case heard. The bishops should have at it. I wouldn’t try the argument that the priest used on my mother-in-law, but there’s always a billboard on the front lawn.

Obama bundlers: Super PAC-men THE WHITE HOUSE didn’t blow a dog whistle for deep-pocketed liberal donors on Monday. No, the administration whipped out a supersized vuvuzela. Blaring message: Let loose the campaign finance-bundling hounds of super PAC war. President Barack Obama’s campaign man- Michelle Malkin ager, Jim Messina, who served as White House deputy chief of staff for operations before assuming 2012 re-election duties, announced the super PAC super-flip-flop in a mass e-mail to supporters and a blog post published on the leftwing Huffington Post website. In a related conference call to major campaign finance bundlers, Messina encouraged these highdollar donors to start funding Priorities USA Action. That’s the Democratic super PAC founded by former White House staffers Bill Burton and Sean Sweeney. Super PACs and campaigns are barred from coordinating with each other. Nevertheless, Messina said that “senior campaign officials as well as some White House and Cabinet officials will attend and speak at Priorities USA fundraising events.” Of course, they “won’t be soliciting contributions.” Wink-wink, nudge-nudge. This brazen about-face for Team Obama is a goldmine of campaign lies, contortions and epic hypocrisy. Let us count the ways: ■ A bundle of contradictions. “Bundling” is the rustling up of aggregate contributions from friends, business associates and employees, a practice to circumvent individual donation limits that Obama has long condemned. When he announced his presidential intentions in 2007, candidate Obama decried “the cynics,
the lobbyists, the special interests who’ve turned our government into a game only they can afford to play.” He indignantly singled out “the best bundlers” who get the “greatest access” to power. Last week, Obama acknowledged raising at least $74 million through his team of big-time bundlers who have been showered with access, tax dollars and plum patronage positions. This elite group of Hollywood celebrities (such as open-borders actress Eva Longoria), political cronies (such as Chicago bagman Louis “The Vacuum” Susman) and politically correct businessmen (such as bankrupt Solyndra investor George Kaiser) now totals a whopping 445 gold-card members. ■ The roar of the revolving door. In his Monday announcement, Messina bragged about how the White House has enacted “sweeping” reforms to “close the revolving door between government and lobbyists.” In truth, the administration has widened the carousel and removed the brakes. Several first-time 2012 bundlers already have snagged administration posts: ■ Norma Lee Funger, of Potomac, Md., who raised between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obama, was appointed last month to the board of trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. ■ Glenn S. Gerstell, of Washington, D.C., who bundled the same amount, was appointed to the National Infrastructure Advisory Commission last fall. ■ Richard Binder, of Bethesda, Md., another $50,000 to $100,000 bundler, was appointed to the Advisory Group on Prevention, Health Promotion, and Integrative and Public Health last spring. And note: The most transparent administration ever still refuses to disclose recusal orders involving the nearly 100 lobbyists and ex-lobbyists on its payroll. ■ Super PAC super-hypocrisy. “Super PACs” are federal politi-
cal action committees that only make independent expenditures in support of, or in opposition to, candidates. Their birth and growth were fueled indirectly by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (FEC) ruling in 2010. The decision overturned severe campaign finance restrictions that essentially criminalized certain forms of political speech. As Chief Justice John Roberts put it during oral arguments: “We don’t put our First Amendment rights in the hands of FEC bureaucrats.” Until this week, the Obama administration vehemently condemned the Citizens United decision and vowed to eschew super PACs. The entities are a “threat to our democracy,” Obama railed two years ago. The ruling would “open the floodgates for special interests,” he warned. And last July, Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt kept talking the anti-super PAC talk. “Neither the president nor his campaign staff or aides will fundraise for super PACs,” he asserted. Now? President Obama and his wife won’t fundraise for the democracyundermining super PACs. But countless other Cabinet members and advisers, partying with Obama bundlers gone wild, will. In 2008, Obama lambasted rival Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards for criticizing independent expenditures while raking in big PAC bucks: “So you can’t say yesterday you don’t believe in them, and today you have three quarters of a million dollars being spent on you. You can’t just talk the talk.” Obama 2012 campaign motto: Empty talk? Yes, we can!

Senate Democrats tout jobs agenda Rather than focus on recruiting companies to Washington, the commission’s plan calls for attempting to grow companies from within the state. “The fact that these legislative pieces have found alignment is very encouraging,” said Egils Milbergs, executive director of the commission. “These are initiatives that are oriented to a longterm strategy.” Some of the bills are targeted at easing regulations for business. One would allow companies to file most paperwork with state agencies electronically. Another makes it harder for agencies to tack on violations to companies already facing penalties. Others are focused on rewarding success. One bill would offer tax incentives for companies that make more money after forming industry trade groups for tasks including product marketing, quality control and worker training.
BY JONATHAN KAMINSKY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA — Senate Democrats are promoting a package of bills aimed at bringing more skilled jobs to the state. Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, two lawmakers highlighted a wide swath of proposed legislation encompassing everything from helping military spouses find work to attracting investment in aerospace technology. “There’s no silver bullet to do an economic development,” said Sen. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor. “It’s a lot more like silver buckshot.”
Training workforce Broadly, the measures are intended to help train the state’s workforce, improve infrastructure and promote investment and entrepreneurship — priorities identified by the state’s Economic Development Commission in a 2009 report.
Sen. Jim Kastama, D-Puyallup, emphasized that a well-trained labor force is essential for Washington to compete for highpaying jobs. “We don’t have a jobs shortage in Washington state,” Kastama said. “We have a skills shortage.”
Unfilled jobs The state’s Employment Security Department reported that there were 60,000 unfilled jobs — both skilled and unskilled — in Washington state last April. All of the bills highlighted Tuesday are still alive, and many stand a good chance of being passed into law, said Kilmer. “As we laid out in our own ‘Roadmap to Growth’ jobs plan earlier this year, Senate Republicans support proposals that will create stability and predictability and reduce costs for Washington’s employers,” Sen. Janea Holmquist Newbry, R-Moses Lake, said in an email.

The $130 million budget, which was adopted Dec. 6, can be seen at www. cityofpa.us/financeBudget. htm#2012. The document also may be viewed at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St., during regular business hours. The size of the financial plan, about $20 million larger than the amended 2011 budget, is mainly because of the convergence of several large capital projects, including sewage overflow elimination, waterfront redevelopment and the continuation of its advanced metering program. The budget also includes no increase to the city’s regular property tax levy — which has remained the same since 2010 — no new staff positions, a reduction in hours for seasonal employees and no cost-of-living increases for staff. The budget includes the use of $15.4 million in reserves, which is about twice as much as the amended 2011 budget. City Manager Kent Myers said he expects the
Electrical power in PA restored PORT ANGELES — Electrical power was restored to all 62 customers in the area of Front and Ennis streets by 6:05 p.m. Wednesday after a midafternoon outage.

Hot wires damaged a transformer. No one was hurt, Klarr said. Power was restored to most customers by 5:15 p.m., with about 10 regaining power at 6:05 p.m., he said.

Days of wine and chocolate Tour offers tempting tastes of decadence across Peninsula BY DIANE URBANI
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
The time has come again to fire up your designated driver and set your pleasure meter. Awaiting you this weekend and next are the scent of chocolate, the golden glow of ciders, and deep-red hues by the glass. This is the annual indulgence known as the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour, and it is one lavish event. Eight cideries and wineries across the North Olympic Peninsula open their doors, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday, as well as over the Presidents Day weekend of Feb. 18-20. Throughout the selfguided tour, tasting rooms large and small will tempt visitors with chocolate truffles, Italianstyle red wines, apple brandy, raspberry wines and even a cascading chocolate fountain. To experience it all, you can opt for the $30 passport, which covers all participating wineries and provides you with a commemorative glass. Alternatively, you can stop in at just a few wineries and pay $5 per visit.
‘Day of luxury’ “With today’s pressures, it’s nice to have a day of luxury,” said David Volmut, winemaker at Wind Rose Cellars in Sequim. There, visitors may try Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, Italian wines made with grapes grown in Eastern Washington. And like its sisters across the
Peninsula, this winery will have sweets for pairing with those reds. Linda Moats of Sequim’s Cocoa d’Amici will come to Wind Rose to serve her hazelnut crunch, pistachio fig, ginger cinnamon and other chocolates.
Rustic experience East of Sequim, out in rural Chimacum, a rustic experience awaits at Finnriver Farm & Cidery. “We’ll have our new release of raspberry wine fortified with apple brandy,” began Finnriver co-owner Crystie Kisler. “And in the barn, we’ll have what we call the chocolate chamber,” where visitors may taste chocolate elixirs from Jennifer Michele Chocolat. There will also be brownies with black currant brandywine, chocolate-covered blueberries and raspberries, and of course Finnriver’s pear and apple ciders.
KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Back in Clallam County, raspberry, strawberry and loganberry wines made with locally grown fruit flow at Black Diamond Winery, a vineyard in the foothills south of Port Angeles. These fruit wines “are very good with chocolate,” said Black Diamond co-owner Sharon Adams. This two-weekend tour in February is the only opportunity to visit her tasting room this winter, since Black Diamond doesn’t
open again till April. In recent years, Adams added, Black Diamond Winery has seen hundreds of visitors the weekends before and after Valentine’s Day. “People absolutely love [the tour],” she said. “They enjoy visiting with each other and comparing notes about what they’re seeing at the different wineries.” Much more information about the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour
is at www.OlympicPeninsula Wineries.org and 800-785-5495. The participating wineries are: ■ Black Diamond Winery, 2976 Black Diamond Road, south of Port Angeles, with fruit wines and syrah plus chocolate truffles. ■ Harbinger Winery, 2358 W. U.S. Highway 101, west of Port Angeles, with treats from Wicked Little Sweets, the release of the 2009 Bolero blend of Spanish red
wines and Venezuelan Chocolate Porter beer from Barhop Brewing. ■ Olympic Cellars, 255410 E. U.S. Highway 101, east of Port Angeles, with a Parisian motif, warm pain au chocolat and coffee, portraits by French photographer Phil Tauran and handcrafted, cabernet sauvignoninfused chocolates by local chocolatier Yvonne Yokota. ■ Wind Rose Cellars, 155 W. Cedar St., Sequim, with Italianstyle wines and chocolates by Cocoa d’Amici. ■ Camaraderie Cellars, 334 Benson Road, Port Angeles, with cocoa-spiced pulled pork, Molly Baby chocolate shortbread cookies, Equal Exchange chocolate bars and savory chocolate bruschetta. ■ FairWinds Winery, 1984 E. Hastings Ave., Port Townsend, with Gewürztraminer, Port O’ Call and cabernet Sauvignonmerlot blend plus the tall, dark chocolate fountain and fruits for dipping. ■ Eaglemount Winery, 2350 Eaglemount Road, south of Port Townsend, with red wine, cider, mead and Chocolate Serenade sweets for pairing. ■ Finnriver Farm and Cidery, 62 Barn Swallow Road, Chimacum, with raspberry wine, chocolate-covered berries, Jennifer Michele Chocolat elixirs and an invitation to visitors to “put their love on the line” by tying a valentine ribbon on the farm’s cooperative art project.

“Wild Olympics will protect our economic future.”
vice president, Taylor Shellfish Farms, Shelton, WA
President and CEO, Paneltech Intl., Hoquiam, WA
The son and grandson of Pacific County loggers, I was proud to take a well-paying job in the northwest logging industry when I finished college. During a long stint with ITT Rayonier, I developed the company’s northwest forest business plan and managed its timberlands operations in Forks before I was sent east. But the magnificent forests and rivers of the wild coast eventually drew me back “home,” where I helped start Paneltech, a company that now employs 50 people at the Port of Grays Harbor.
This area badly needs new familywage jobs. Some will come from our commercial forests. But we also need to attract more entrepreneurs that create more valueadded jobs. They will need uniquely-skilled people, the kind drawn here, as I was, because our ancient forests and river watersheds provide clean water, healthy salmon runs, world-class hunting and fishing and an unrivaled quality of life.

The Wild Olympics are our common ground. Hood Canal is home to the two largest hatcheries that supply seed to the West Coast shellfish industry— which directly supports more than 150 local jobs and many more in related industries such as processing, sales and shipping. By protecting Olympic Peninsula forest and river watersheds, we ensure clean and safe water so that shellfish companies can continue to grow and benefit the economy and ecology of Washington state. These watersheds are also natural filters for drinking water and vital to a healthy Hood Canal and Puget Sound. We must do all we can to protect the peninsula forest and river watersheds to guarantee our inland waters stay clear and sparkling. Today folks in the Wild Olympics Campaign are coming together to find the best way to do just that— to find common ground to protect our wild forests and rivers for the clean water and salmon we need.
The Wild Olympics plan will permanently protect these natural amenities vital to our economic future. But the plan also shows great sensitivity toward private property and the commercial timber base. Most public land considered in the proposal is already off limits to logging. It gives timber landowners an option to sell certain lands to the Park, but only if they want to. A healthier timber industry adding more value locally can contribute toward the restoration of our area’s economic vitality. But we also need new companies with new ideas, new value-added jobs and new sources of raw material. With the Wild Olympics plan, we can have both.

Playwrightsâ€™ Festival begins this weekend playwriting intensive from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.; the cost is $85, or $75 for Key City Public Theatre members. Congdon was last in residence at Key City during the Northwest premiere of her play â€œSO FAR: The Children of the Elvi,â€? in 2007. â€œI am so excited to have Congdon returning to Port Townsend to share her knowledge and artistry with us,â€? said Winter.
BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” A feast of drama, laughter and spice is about to be laid out. The 16th annual Playwrightsâ€™ Festival, presented by Key City Public Theatre, begins tonight with a menu of three one-act plays â€” all comedies â€” on stage at the Key City Playhouse at 419 Washington St. These plays, Sandy Diamondâ€™s â€œParrot,â€? Richard Westonâ€™s â€œThe Rugâ€? and â€œPRNYCâ€? by Mark Rose, run through Sunday and then return for more performances next weekend. The one-act productions will take the stage at 8 p.m. today and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, and will return to the playhouse next Friday through Sunday, Feb. 17-19. Admission is $15 to see all three. The festival, which brings together writers and actors from across the region and nation, progresses over 10 days and nights with staged readings, works-in-progress and a one-woman show, â€œIs Sex
â€œThe Rug,â€? one of the plays in the Playwrightsâ€™ Festival opening tonight at the Key City Playhouse, features Peter Wiant, left, and Gary Dobbin as a pair of hungry delivery men. Possible?â€? by guest artist Constance Congdon. Congdon, an internationally known playwright, will perform her solo show â€” a comedic exploration of sex and dating after age 50 â€” in the Key City Playhouse at 7 p.m. next Thursday. â€œIs Sex Possible?â€? has been performed in New York City, Kansas and
Nebraska, to mixed reactions. â€œWhen Congdon first performed the play in Nebraska last year, one audience member laughed so hard she hit her head on the table,â€? noted Denise Winter, Key Cityâ€™s artistic director. Then there was another patron who told Congdon,
â€œYou should have your mouth washed out with soap!â€? Congdon, a teacher and playwright in residence at Amherst College in Massachusetts, will give a free, public playwriting workshop from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18. Then on Sunday, Feb. 19, she will teach an advanced
new eco-tourism cruise complete with live chickens and organic, raw food. Other highlights of the festival: staged readings of â€œSenior Street Showâ€? by Deborah Daline; â€œDream Voyeurâ€? by Jack Oâ€™Connor and â€œDelayed for Weatherâ€? by Steve Fetter at 7 p.m. Tuesday with admission of $10. And three plays in progress, â€œThe Odysseyâ€? by Charlie Bethel, â€œDiary of a M.A.D. Caregiverâ€? by D. Runyon Fleener and â€œMan Catches Fishâ€? by Gin Hammond, will be presented in order to spark audience feedback. These performances are slated for 7 p.m. this Sunday and Wednesday and 2:30 p.m. next Saturday, Feb. 18. Admission will again be $10. To find out more about these and other Playwrightsâ€™ Festival workshops and performances taking place around Port Townsend, visit www.Key CityPublicTheatre.org or phone 360-379-0195.
The festival offers theater lovers a diverse mix of stories and formats. For example, the one-act â€œParrotâ€? is about seven archetypal characters in a small-town post office, while â€œThe Rugâ€? has a mysterious rug delivered to a man who keeps hearing the words â€œItâ€™s your turn.â€? His turn for what is slowly revealed by a couple of goofy moving men and a woman dressed only in high heels and an overcoat.

open arms. These stories illustrate for us the bond of love between our Creator and us. Each one emphasizes the joy in heaven when one who was lost is found. We hunger to be found. Jesus assured us that we could be found because God seeks us even as we seek God. Perhaps that is why he gave us this guarantee: “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8). To ask, seek and knock express a willingness to be found. This is the opposite of the children’s game of hide and seek where the object is to remain hidden and apart. Spiritual community satisfies the hunger to be found. But, as described by Catholic mystic St. John of the Cross, this community does not require another person. He wrote, “I was sad one day and went for a walk; I sat in a field. A rabbit noticed my condition and came near. It often does not take more than that to help at times — to just be close to creatures who are so full of knowing, so full of love that they don’t chat, they just gaze with their marvelous understanding.” What the rabbit taught St. John and what the little girl taught me is that divine love can always find us when we have a little willingness to be found.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, long before I was an ordained minister, I attended a Holy Week service in a new city. I felt sad and lonely because I missed my close friends whom I had left behind. At the far end of the pew from where I sat, there was a couple with a young daughter. Suddenly, I noticed the little girl was close beside me. She looked up at me and simply said, “I am going to sit next to you.” I remember nothing else about that service. But I do recall that moment when love and friendship were shared with me. This is what we seek through spiritual community. We seek a way out of our loneliness and sense of separation. We hunger to belong, to fit in. We thirst for acceptance and encouragement. As the theme song for the TV show “Cheers” said, we want to be “where everybody knows your name.”

Kodak to cease making cameras, digital frames

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ROCHESTER, N.Y. â€” Eastman Kodak Co. said Thursday that it will stop making digital cameras, pocket video cameras and digital picture frames, marking the end of an era for the company that brought photography to the masses more than a century ago. Founded by George Eastman in 1880, Kodak was known all over the world for its Brownie and Instamatic cameras and its yellow-and-red film boxes. But the company was battered by Japanese competition in the 1980s, and was then unable to keep pace with the shift from film to digital technology. The Rochester, N.Y.-based company, which filed for bankruptcy protection last month, said it will phase out the product lines in the first half of this year and instead look for other companies to license its brand for those products. Itâ€™s an especially poignant moment for Kodak. In 1975, using a new type of electronic sensor invented six years earlier at Bell Labs, a Kodak engineer named Steven Sasson created the first digital camera. It was a toastersize prototype capturing black-andwhite images at a resolution of 0.1 megapixels. Through the 1990s, Kodak spent some $4 billion developing the photo technology inside most of todayâ€™s cellphones and digital devices. But a reluctance to ease its heavy financial reliance on film allowed rivals like Canon Inc. and Sony Corp.
MARK LENNIHAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRES
The Kodak Easyshare digital camera is going away. to rush into the fast-emerging digital arena. The immensely lucrative analog business Kodak worried about undermining was virtually erased in a decade by the filmless photography it invented. Today, the standalone digital camera faces stiff competition, as smartphone cameras gain broader use. Kodak owns patents that cover a number of basic functions in many smartphone cameras. The company picked up $27 million in patent-licensing fees in the first half of 2011. It made about $1.9 billion from those fees in the previous three years combined. Kodak sees home photo printers, high-speed commercial inkjet presses, workflow software and packaging as
the core of its future business. Since 2005, the company has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into new lines of inkjet printers. Once the digital camera business is phased out, Kodak said its consumer business will focus on printing. Kodak said itâ€™s working with its retailers to ensure an orderly transition. The company will continue to honor product warranties and provide technical support for the discontinued products. The moves are expected to result in annual savings of more than $100 million. The company didnâ€™t say how many jobs would be eliminated as a result of the decision but did say that it expects to take a charge of $30 million related to separation costs.

market insights at Fidelity. One reason account balances didnâ€™t rise last year is the number of new plan participants, McHugh said. Many new enrollees are young workers who havenâ€™t been investing long enough to build up substantial accounts. Consequently, their low balances reduce the overall average account size. However, balances have risen all but two quarters since the market meltdown, which reduced the average to $46,200.

BOSTON â€” Workers stashed money away in their 401(k) retirement plans at a faster clip last year but didnâ€™t get an immediate reward for their savings strategy. Fidelity Investments, the nationâ€™s biggest 401(k) administrator, said the average account balance was essentially unchanged in 2011 compared with 2010. The year-end average for participants in Fidelity Investments plans was $69,100, down $300 from 2010, the company said Thursday. The average slipped despite a slight increase in employee contributions. The 11.6 million participants in Fidelityâ€™s plans set aside an average $5,750 through paycheck deductions, up from $5,680 a year earlier. Thatâ€™s more than 8 percent of their annual pay, on average. The amount employers paid in matching contributions also rose slightly, averaging $3,270 last year. The increase came as more companies restored matches that had been reduced or suspended during the recession. But the balance boost
that workers received from higher contributions was offset by factors including investment performance, and fees paid to manage the money and administer plans. Those fees can be a significant drain on returns and are one key reason why changes in account balances donâ€™t match market performance. Stocks were volatile in 2011. They rose in the first half of the year, then tumbled over the summer only to rally at year-end. The Standard & Poorâ€™s 500 index finished virtually unchanged but rose 2.1 percent factoring in dividends. Many 401(k) accountholders invest in foreign as well as domestic stocks, and several overseas indexes tumbled.
Bond investments helped offset those losses, as the Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond index rose 7.8 percent. The average 401(k) balance tracked the yearâ€™s bumpy returns. At midyear, it reached $72,700, the highest since Fidelity began tracking balances in 1998. The average dropped 12 percent over the next three months, amid growing worries about the global economy and the European debt crisis. Those fears eased late in the year, sparking stocks to climb and boost the average account 8 percent in the fourth quarter. Typically, about twothirds of annual increases in 401(k) account balances are the result of workersâ€™ added contributions and company matches. Itâ€™s only the final third thatâ€™s the result of investment returns, said Beth McHugh, vice president of

The 44-foot vessel wrecked on the seaward side of James Island at LaPush on Feb. 12, 1997, killing three crew members: Petty Officers Clinton Miniken, David Bosely and Matthew Schlimme. The Coast Guard crew, which was attempting to rescue crew aboard a 31-foot sailboat that was in danger of hitting the rocks on James Island was rolled three times in heavy seas before the superstructure of the motor lifeboat was ripped off and three of the four men aboard went into the ocean and died. The fourth crew member remained tethered to the boat and survived, landing on James Island. A Coast Guard helicopter plucked the two sailors aboard the sailboat off their vessel just before it went aground on the rocks of James Island.

It’s playoff weekend
Anglers jostle for Area teams sights room at have for state Sol Duc PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
THE STEELHEAD ARE at or near their peak, and um, well, so are the anglers in the crowded but very fruitful Sol Duc River on the West End. The steelhead run, which starts in January and goes through April, peaks in February and March and it seems to be keeping to its normal script and is currently super-hot. “I’ve heard that the Sol Duc is the hottest place to be right now,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Good and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. Bob Gooding in Forks, who lives and works right where the action is, agrees. “The Sol Duc has a lot of fish and they have been decent [in size],” Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said. Wild steelhead are still catchand-release until Feb. 16 (this coming Thursday), but that is not stopping anglers from taking photos of their prized fish and bragging about the steelie they actually caught. “In the past week and a half, I have seen some dandies,” Gooding said. “I have seen four to five pictures of fish over 20 pounds.” Right now, though, there’s a lot of pressure on the Sol Duc because of anglers from Seattle, Tacoma and other parts of Western Washington are all coming out to fish for steelhead on the North Olympic Peninsula because of new emergency rules that stopped all steelhead fishing in the Puget Sound area. “It is really crowded out there [West End] because of the steelhead rules,” Menkal said. “There are so many fishing out there right now; it’s a little crazy.” New state rules came out late last week that prohibit steelhead fishing in all rivers except on the major rivers in the West End. Menkal said he talked to Pat Neal (area fishing guide and Peninsula Daily News columnist) last Friday and Neal told him the Sol Duc was crowded with anglers. “He said there were so many people from Seattle out there,” Menkal said. “Yeah, it happens every year,” Gooding said about the extra crowds from the Seattle and Tacoma areas. “Out here is the only place you can keep wild steelhead [during the season], and it has been catch-andrelease elsewhere,” Gooding said. “Now that they can’t even catchand-release, more will come out here.” That makes perfect sense, according to Gooding. “If you must go fish, you have to go where the rivers and the fish are. The Peninsula has exactly what they want, the [fishable] rivers and [lots of] fish.” The rain the past few days is helping out for good fishing. “The water level was getting quite low out there, but now the fish are a little less edgy [because of higher water levels],” Menkal said. “There’s better water flow.” Gooding says it’s raining just the right amount, not too much and not too little. “The rivers are very viable to float and everything,” Gooding said. If the crowds on Sol Duc are too much for you, try one of the other West End rivers. “Most rivers have fish,” Gooding said. “The Bogachial and the Hoh have been fishing OK. But the Sol Duc is where most of the fish are.” Menkal adds: “A few have come out of the Bogachial.”
The winding down of the high school winter sports season can mean only one thing. Playoffs and postseason tournaments. North Olympic Peninsula teams enter playoffs this weekend with an eye on state tournaments. Boys and girls basketball teams try to stay alive or to get better seeding for district tournaments while the four schools with wrestling programs enter regional tournament action, just one step from state. Boys swimming and diving, and gymnastics teams also have district events this weekend, just a single step from state.
Boys Basketball 2A subdistricts Sequim and Port Angeles find themselves in subdistrict mini-tourneys, which are for seeding into the West Central District championships and the springboard for state. The Sequim Wolves (15-5), the Olympic League runnersup, get the booby prize as they open subdistrict play against 2A state No. 2-ranked Clover Park (16-4) at Klahowya High School in Silverdale tonight at 7:30 (the time was changed from an original 8 p.m. slot.) The winner will play the winner between Kingston and Evergreen on Saturday while the two losers meet the same day at Klahowya. The four teams are playing for the top four district seed. Two wins and Sequim is NO. 1 seed, two losses and the Wolves are No. 4 to districts. The Port Angeles Roughriders (16-4), the Olympic League’s No. 3 team, is in a similar situation as Sequim but playing for lower district seeds. The Riders open against state ranked No. 6 Sumner (16-4) at 8 p.m. today at Foster High School in Tukwila. The winner plays the White River-Lindbergh winner Saturday at Foster while the two losers meet. White River is ranked No. 8 in state. The four teams are playing for

Forks in tourney CENTRALIA — While Port Angeles and Sequim are in seeding games, the Forks Spartans are fighting for their playoff lives in a double-elimination tourney starting at Centralia High School tonight. The Spartans (14-6), second place in SWL-Evergreen Division, will take on Kalama (11-9) — third place in the Trico League — at 6:30 p.m.
Win or lose, the two teams will advance to play Tuesday in the second round. While the Chinooks’ final record may not knock your socks off, they could give the Spartans fits. The Chinooks are fast and they like to run other teams into the ground with fastbreak after fastbreak. “They will have one player back when we take shots,” Forks coach Scott Justus said. “We will have four players to board and one will sit back.”
The Kalama player takes off when the shot is attempted and looks for a quick pass. “They are very fast, athletic and they have pretty good size,” Justus said. The smallest starting player is 6-foot while there is one at 6-5, two at 6-2 and one at 6-1. Offensively, the Chinooks are well balanced with two averaging 11 points a game, two average nine, one averages seven and there’s another at six. TURN
Tough Whatcom sweeps Pirates PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
BELLINGHAM — It was fitting that Wednesday’s match-up between the Peninsula College Pirates men’s basketball team and Whatcom Orcas followed the Super Bowl because it was a match-up of Super Bowl-proportions. The NWAACC’s secondranked Orcas were home against third-ranked Pirates — and the winner would have the inside track to the North Division title. Whatcom won that showdown 88-80. It was also a preview of two teams expected to vie for the NWAACC championship in March. The Pirates had a strong first half, leading 46-39 at the break, but Whatcom took advantage of Peninsula foul trouble and roared back while Pirate post players DeShaun Freeman and
College Corey Clement watched much of the game from the bench. Freeman eventually fouled out and Clement managed to nurse four fouls to the final buzzer, but the Pirates could not stay with the hosts down the stretch, falling by the eight points. The Pirates outshot Whatcom 50 percent to 45 percent, and were almost even from 3-point range (39 percent to 40 percent), but the Orcas capitalized on 80 percent free-throw shooting to the Pirates’ 56 percent and from a 38-32 rebounding edge as well as a 17-13 turnover edge to account for the difference in the game. J.T. Terrell led five Pirates in double figures with 18, Freeman and Clement each hit for 14,
Sam Waller 11 and Dudley Ewell 10. Daniel Sims added a seasonhigh five assists. The Pirates (8-3 in North Division, 18-4 overall), slipped into a tie for third place with Shoreline, host Edmonds on Saturday.
Women’s Basketball Whatcom 61, Peninsula 48 BELLINGHAM — Following heart-stopping losses to conference-leading Skagit Valley and Bellevue, the Pirates knew they were as good as any team in the North and they needed only a win at Whatcom on Wednesday to secure the inside track for third place and stay in the hunt for the second-place berth to the playoffs. However, Whatcom is a tough
place to win and it was a combination of chilly shooting, lack of rebounding and some lop-sided whistles that spelled the Pirates’ demise in the setback. The Orcas went to the line 18 times, hitting 15 of those, while Peninsula shot only five free throws, making only two to provide the difference on the scoreboard. The Pirates were also unusually cold from beyond the arc, where they hoisted 14 3s and made none of them. The Orcas also outrebounded the Pirates 39-25. The Pirates were led by the 18 points of Taylor Larson and 13 from Jesse Ellis, who also led in rebounds with six, steals with four and assists with five. The Peninsula women (7-4, 13-8) slipped to fourth place in the North. They host winless Edmonds on Saturday.

SEATTLE — Sue Bird has long said she hopes to spend her entire WNBA career playing for the Seattle Storm. Her latest multi-year contract with the franchise, announced on Thursday, brings that closer to reality. “With this contract, it puts me in a position to do that,” Bird said.
The re-signing of Bird and backcourt mate Tanisha Wright, also announced Thursday, keeps together the longest-tenured starting backcourt in the WNBA. The duo has started 117 games together since Seattle took Wright in the 2005 draft. More importantly from Seattle’s perspective, the contract keeps Bird in a Storm uniform for an 11th season and likely beyond.
“There are 11 other teams that would love to have Sue’s services for one season or more,” Seattle coach Brian Agler said. Bird was taken with the No. 1 pick in the 2002 draft and with fellow No. 1 pick Lauren Jackson has brought two WNBA titles to Seattle. She is regarded as consistently the best point guard in the league. Bird is coming off a season
where she led Seattle in scoring at 14.7 points per game despite playing through a sore right hip that required surgery last September to repair the labrum. Speaking on a conference call from Russia, where she’s currently playing, Bird said she’s fully recovered from the hip surgery. “It’s done now, it’s one less thing to think about,” Bird said of the contract.

Tiger starts strong at Pebble Beach THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Twenty months later, Dustin Johnson finally hit the drive he wanted at Pebble Beach. Ten years later, Tiger Woods must have wondered what kept him away from the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. On a spectacular day of scenery and scoring, Johnson blasted a tee shot on the third hole at Pebble Beach and then pitched in for eagle from 41 yards in front of the green. He added another eagle on his way to a 9-under 63 and a three-way tie atop the leaderboard Thursday. Woods was five shots to par out of the lead, a solid start to his PGA Tour season. He had six birdies in a 4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill, the fourthbest score on that course. Spyglass was hardest of the three courses, though not by much. The weather was so pure that all three courses played about one shot under par. Charlie Wi was over at Monterey Peninsula and had a shot at 59 without ever knowing it. Wi was 8 under after a tap-in birdie on the 13th hole, and needed only three birdies in the last five holes. Trouble is, he had

no idea the Shore Course was a 70. He made one more birdie and had a 9-under 61. “I was looking at the scorecard like, ‘What’s the par here?’ I did not know it was a par 70,” Wi said. “That 59 never crossed my mind. Not once.” Joining them was former U.S. Amateur Danny Lee, who holed a bunker shot for eagle at No. 2 and holed out from the 11th fairway with a wedge for another eagle to match Johnson at 9-under 63. Johnson is turning into his generation’s “Prince of Pebble.” He won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in consecutive years, and then had a three-shot lead at Pebble in the U.S. Open two years ago until he shot 82 in the final round. On the third hole of that round, he hit driver left into the bushes for a lost ball and made double bogey. On Thursday, he smashed a driver nearly 340 yards over the trees to just short of the green, setting up eagle. Even now, he still thinks about that tee shot in the U.S. Open. Walking off the tee, he said to caddie Bobby Brown, “I could have used that in the U.S. Open.” “Walking off that hole, I told
Bob, ‘This hole owes me a few more than just that one.’” Johnson overpowered the par 5s at Pebble Beach, the secret to playing that course well. He had a 6-iron for his second shot at the par-5 second for an easy birdie, holed a 65-foot eagle putt on the sixth hole, got up and down from the bunker just short of the 14th for birdie, then cringed when his 40-foot eagle attempt on the 18th just turned away. “I thought it was going in,” Johnson said. “I was laughing. I made plenty of putts today.”
Tiger’s short game Woods made his share, too. He opened with consecutive birdies, stuffing his approach on No. 10 and two-putting for birdie on the par-5 11th. He also holed a downhill, 8-foot birdie putt on the 17th that was good enough to elicit a small fist pump, and from behind the par-5 opening hole, hit a flop shot to 7 feet and made that. One of his two bogeys was sloppy. It came on the short par-4 fourth, with a shallow green set among sand dunes and ice plant at a diagonal angle. Instead of going toward the
middle of the green and letting the slope take the ball to the hole, Woods went at the flag. The ball bounced hard over the green and into a sandy patch of dunes, in a foot print. He did well to blast a wedge some 30 feet past the hole and had a good two-putt from there for bogey. Woods picked up another birdie on the par-5 seventh for his 68. He played the par 5s in a 3 under. “I don’t know if it’s a good sign or a bad sign,” Woods said about his 68. “With the scores the way they are, I thought I could have it lower than I did. The guys are just tearing this place apart with no wind. I’m not too far away from posting a good number out here.” His partner, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, contributed pars on the holes where Woods made bogey, and Romo had a birdie on the par-5 14th when Woods missed the fairway and had to settle for par. As a team, they were tied for 25th. Romo gets to play a forward tee, but he doesn’t get any shots with a scratch handicap.

Armstrong relieved after investigation ends THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
AUSTIN, Texas — As far as Lance Armstrong is concerned, it’s all over. The stress, the waiting, the whispers about whether he doped during his stellar cycling career, all of it ended when — after nearly two years — federal prosecutors closed an investigation of him last week without bringing any charges. “I’m happy. I’m glad it’s behind me,” Armstrong told The Associated Press on Thursday in his first inter-
view since prosecutors announced they were dropping the case. The seven-time Tour de France winner said he remained confident he would not be indicted, but admitted the weight of the long investigation took a toll on him personally. “It’s not a pleasant experience. It was difficult at times,” he said. “But I was confident that we would always end up in this place.” After speaking with the AP, Armstrong participated
in a teleconference with media covering this weekend’s triathlon in Panama City, Panama, where he is scheduled to compete. For the now 40-year-old Armstrong, the federal government’s decision should put a stop to any allegations or rumors about performance-enhancing drug use during his career. “It’s over,” he said. “I’m moving on.” Armstrong maintains he has never failed a drug test, but he nonetheless became the focus of investigators’
attention after former teammates Floyd Landis accused him in 2010 of participating in a doping program. Landis was stripped of his 2006 Tour title after failing a drug test. Armstrong won every Tour from 1999-2005. A federal grand jury in Los Angeles looked at whether a doping program was established for Armstrong’s team while, at least part of the time, it received government sponsorship
from the U.S. Postal Service. U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. announced last Friday his office had closed the case but did not give a reason. The World Anti-Doping Agency followed up this week by urging the U.S. government to quickly hand over evidence collected in the investigation. Meanwhile, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s investigation into doping in cycling is continuing. When Armstrong’s case
was closed last week, USADA CEO Travis Tygart said he looked forward to obtaining the information developed during the federal probe. “I don’t want to get bogged down with that. I’m not concerned with that. I’m not going to worry about that,” Armstrong said. Armstrong, who has been known to attack his critics in the media and on Twitter, had only issued a muted written statement in response to the end of the investigation.
Preps: Chimacum boys in loser-out contest CONTINUED FROM B8 “That’s the scary part, that they have such good balance,” Justus said. The Chinooks average 57 points a game and give up just 46. “That concerns me because we average only 45 points a game,” Justus said. The Chinooks could have won the SWL-Evergreen Division this year, Justus said. The key is to slow Kalama down, Justus said. “If we can make them play a half-court game, we have a chance,” Justus said. “We’ll see what our matchup zone will do to them.” On the injury front, there is good news and bad news for the Spartans. The good news is that star player Braden Decker will be back and close to full force after missing a couple of games last week because of an injured big toe.
“Braden has looked good in practice and I think he’s ready to go,” Justus said. Decker is the top defender on the team and is a third of the offense. Justus tried to rest Decker at times this week in practice. “He got angry about that, and so I let him go [run in practice],” Justus said. Decker played 3.5 minutes of a must-win game against Rainier on Saturday and he responded with five points, two rebounds and two steals. The Spartans won that game 47-30. ‘We played a really, really good game at Rainier,” Justus said. “We probably had our best defensive effort of the year.” Just as Decker’s news gets better, the news gets worse for point guard Jonah Penn, who has a bad shoulder. A few games ago, Penn
went diving for a looser ball and skidded into the bleachers, hurting his left shoulder. “He has trouble reaching up with his left arm,” Justus said. “That could hurt us because he runs the show for us.”

Steve Wyman and Lorna Delaney caught this 13-pound hatchery steelhead on the Sol Duc River recently with the help of the It’s Fish On Guide Service. After next spring, no hatchery steelhead will be released into the Sol Duc River, which will be the first wild steelhead management zone formally established in the state, said Ron Warren, regional fish program manager for WDFW. Snider Creek is a tributary to the Sol Duc River in Clallam County. Wild management zones, also known as wild stock gene banks, are designed to preserve key populations of wild fish by minimizing interactions with hatcheryproduced fish, Warren said. Research has shown that hatchery fish are often less genetically diverse and can impact wild stocks through interbreeding or competition for food or habitat. WDFW is also looking to identify other streams that could be candidates for wild management zones, Warren said. That effort includes working with an advisory group to identify specific streams in the Puget Sound region. “Establishing wild management zones is part of a broad effort aimed at modifying our hatchery programs to be compatible with conservation and
recovery of naturally spawning salmon and steelhead populations,” Warren said. “Shifting hatchery steelhead production away from the Sol Duc River — where we have one of the largest wild steelhead populations in the state — is an important step in that effort.” While the hatchery program will no longer take place at Snider Creek, WDFW is working with stakeholders to re-establish a similar effort in the Bogachiel or Calawah rivers, where the department already releases hatchery steelhead, Warren said. The program will end next spring when 25,000 winter steelhead smolts are released into the Sol Duc River, Warren said. Last year, WDFW also discontinued its summer steelhead program on the Sol Duc River, after releasing 20,000 smolts. While fewer and fewer hatchery steelhead will be returning to the Sol Duc River in the coming years, anglers will continue to have opportunities to fish for salmon and other game fish, as well as retain one wild steelhead per license year on the river, Warren said.
The Snider Creek program was created in 1986 as a joint project with the Olympic Peninsula Guides’ Association to increase fishing opportunities for steelhead on the Sol Duc River. The program is unlike most other hatchery efforts in that it produces offspring from wild steelhead rather than hatchery fish.

Fun ’n’ Advice
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
DEAR ABBY: There is an ongoing issue between my husband and me. It’s his disregard for my personal safety. Our large city is known for its heavy, fast traffic and impatient drivers. “Jon” is a good driver. He likes to drive in the left (passing) lane on the highway or toll way, usually about 5 miles above the posted speed limit. This is considered too slow for many drivers, who become impatient and aggressive having to be behind us in the fast lane. They flash their headlights and tailgate us, trying to get him to move over into the right lane so they can pass, but Jon refuses to yield. If they start to pass us on the right, he will speed up and race them so they can’t get ahead of him. He says he’s “teaching them a lesson.” I have told my husband repeatedly that these games are dangerous and they scare me. Not only could we get into an accident, but we could get into an ugly confrontation or worse. I am terrified in these situations and he knows it, but he continues. I try to drive as often as possible, but I can’t see as well at night as I used to, so Jon drives at night or when we’re going long distances. With the price of gas and considering the inconvenience and inefficiency, it doesn’t make sense to go in separate cars. Do you have any suggestions? On a Collision Course in Houston

DEAR ABBY That way, you can show Van Buren Jon in black and white that his behavior is not only wrong, but dangerous. While some husbands are not receptive to a wife’s comments about their driving, most will listen to what a state trooper has to say about good driving practices versus bad ones. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. And one more word of advice: Continue being the driver as often as possible. Your lives could depend on it.
Dear Abby: I was discussing with my 26-year-old daughter how parents punish their kids when suddenly she told me that she hated that I would make her write “lines” when she was growing up. She mentioned that one day, I made her do it when her friend was there to play with her. I felt really bad about this and wonder why she is bringing this up now. Wondering Down South Dear Wondering: It came up now because punishment was the topic of conversation, and she flashed back on how humiliating it was to have been punished in front of a friend. Clearly, it made an impact — and it would be interesting to know if the infraction was repeated after that.
Dear On a Collision Course: Jon should be told that impeding the flow of traffic is a very dangerous practice. His childish behavior could incite road rage, and it is everyone’s responsibility to minimize instances in which road rage can occur. Contact the Department of Public Safety to get a copy of the Texas Drivers Handbook.

Weinblatt, who is directing the show with Rowen Matkins, calls it a kind of “indoor Shakespeare in the Park,” and invites patrons to bring pillows, blankets, backrests and low-rider chairs. Some chairs will be available at the show for those who need them. The birds alighting in “Conference” include a gracious dove (Keira Matkins), a proud falcon (Erik Pokorny), a timid sparrow (Orion Weinblatt Dey), a self-absorbed peacock (Nora Kingsley), a lonely
heron (Mimi Molotsky), a haughty duck (Xandra Sonandre), a miserly owl (Tao Johnston), a spoiled parrot (Kiera Sholty), an anxious partridge (Sienna Fink) and a lovelorn nightingale (River Yearian). Jack Kingsley, Shae Weinblatt Dey and Rowan Halpin team up to play the strange characters the travelers meet along the way. Also among the flock are Ezra Aquilar, Mary d’Arcy, Salvera Deane, Zoey Doray, Lia Poore, Tori Sonandre, Imogen William-

The show is a mix of classical theater, Persian culture, work and fun, said Daniel Molotsky, the ICE teacher overseeing the project. “It’s a true community effort,” he added. “The kids are working hard” while learning about birds, social studies and poetry. Laurence Cole, founder of the PT Songlines Choir, is also part of the show, with his original songs
accompanied by local musician Ash Devine. The technical team for “Conference of the Birds” includes parent Lisa Doray and several other parent volunteers. They are collaborating on scenery, props, poster art and more than 30 fantastical bird costumes — all made from scratch. The project has also received support from the Jefferson County YMCA, Weinblatt noted. To find out more about “Conference” and ICE, phone 360-344-3435.

SEQUIM â€” Melissa and Andrew are just kids, carefree kids, when they become sweethearts. Then theyâ€™re separated â€” but only physically. Over 50 years, they keep in touch and bravely reveal their hopes, dreams and disappointments, via handwritten letters. This is the story of â€œLove Letters,â€? A.R. Gurneyâ€™s play about two people joining minds and hearts by way of pen and paper. This Valentineâ€™s Day, we get to hear Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III read their missives aloud, as Olympic Theatre Arts presents â€œLove Lettersâ€? for one night only.
Roger Briggs and his wife of 45 years, Sharon, portray Andrew and Melissa through all their travails and confidences, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets to the production, on the stage inside OTAâ€™s Gathering Hall, are $15 including beverages and sweets; a wine bar will also be open for the evening.

Many twists and turns follow for Melissa and Andy. Regret, hope and love are expressed, exquisitely, in their written words. Much is said between the lines, too.
Performing for years Roger and Sharon have offered â€œLove Lettersâ€? in coffee houses, theaters and even banks across the Northwest. They first performed it in 1993 in Richland, and two years later won third prize with it in the Kaleidoscope theater competition in Spokane.

SOUNDTRACKS of our lives ‘Movies and Their Music’ looks back at songs from many beloved films BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT
DUNGENESS — An interlude of romance and remembrance is about to unfold, courtesy of 17 singers and 18 songs. So promises Dewey Ehling, musical director of “Movies and Their Music,” the revue opening tonight at the Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road. The production, with its ensemble of vocalists, select skits from classic movies and narrator Pat Owens, is 90 minutes of stories in song. Just a taste, now: “When You Wish upon a Star,” from the 1940 classic “Pinocchio,” opens the show; then come “The Last Time I Saw Paris” from 1941’s “Lady Be Good,” “You’ll Never Know” from 1943’s “Hello, Frisco, Hello,” and “Swinging on a Star” from “Going My Way,” the 1944 film starring Bing Crosby. “Movies and Their Music” stars local singers of note, including Carol Swarbrick Dries, Linda Grubb, Ric Munhall and Brian Doig. Munhall, in addition to singing, is also the stage director and orchestrator of the movie scenes rounding out the revue. Six performances are slated, at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday; next weekend,
