It was a Capitol offense Ex-Rep. Kessler given art she fought over in Olympia By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Centrum officials have presented retired lawmaker Lynn Kessler with a series of prints based on images in a controversial mural that was taken down in the 1990s from a wall in the state Capitol in Olympia. “You have no idea how much these mean to me because they were so much a part of my life in my office,” Kessler said at Friday’s presentation, which followed a Centrum board meeting at Fort Worden State Park. “This is such a kind present, which I will keep for the rest of my life.” Kessler, a Democrat from Hoquiam, represented the 24th District for 18 years, 12 as House majority leader, before her retirement last year. The district covers Jefferson and Clallam counties and part of Grays Harbor County. Rep. Steve Tharinger, a Democrat from Sequim, was elected to her seat in November. Kessler took the opportunity to speak for public support of the arts. “It saddens me to see that legislators are looking to cut support for public art as a way to balance the budget when art is part of the balance of life,” she said.

PORT TOWNSEND — The historic Bartlett-Cotton Building’s new life as a visitor center and a place for community gatherings and public art displays began Saturday with a dedication ceremony that drew about 35 people. “This is a great space,” said Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Teresa Verraes. “It’s a wonderful place for us to meet our families and neighbors to enjoy public art.” The restoration of the 1888 building down- Verraes town at 607 Water St. was part of a $5.1 million refurbishment of the Civic District — the area between Monroe and Madison streets in downtown Port Townsend. “It took a whole lot of people to make this happen,” said Mayor Michelle Sandoval as she presided over the short ceremony that preceded a panel discussion about art in public places.

Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon parents again MARIAH CAREY AND Nick Cannon celebrated their third anniversary with another milestone — becoming parents to a baby girl and boy. Carey’s representative, Cindi Berger, confirmed the births to The Associated Press. The singing superstar gave birth Saturday at 12:07 p.m. at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles. Berger said the baby girl was born first, weighing 5 pounds 3 ounces, and was 18 inches long; her brother was next, at 5 pounds 6 ounces, and was 19 inches. Berger said the couple have not named the children yet. Cannon drove Carey to the hospital in their RollsRoyce Phantom. Berger said the 41-year-old Carey, who had gone through false labor, was calm, thinking that it was another false alarm. Meanwhile, the 30-year-

Mohr, who calls “Criminal Intent” his favorite TV show, guest stars as a hard-living fashion Mohr designer on today’s season-debut episode airing at 9 p.m. on USA Network. The first scene filmed by Mohr put his character in the interrogation room with detectives investigating a murder. Mohr said he felt intimidated working with series stars Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe in the tense scene. He said a guest shot on any “Law & Order” show is a test that actors either pass or fail. So how did he do? The actor-comedian said his wife, actress Nikki Cox, deemed him “excellent.”

ERHARD LORETAN, 52, a famed Swiss mountain guide who was one of the few climbers to ever reach the summits of all 14 of the world’s peaks above 26,200 feet, has died in a climbing fall on his birthday. Swiss police said Friday that Mr. Loretan died leading a client up the summit ridge of the Gruenhorn, in the Bernese Alps in Mr. Loretan Switzerland. in 1998 The accident occurred Thursday at noon. The pair had skied up partway, then roped up for the final ascent. They fell for unknown reasons at 12,500 feet up the 13,264-foot peak. Mr. Loretan died at the scene, police from the Swiss canton of Valais said. Police are still investigating. Mr. Loretan, originally from the canton of Fribourg, began climbing at age 11. He climbed his first 26,200foot peak, Pakistan’s difficult Nanga Parbat, in 1982. It took him 13 years to make it up the other 13 tall peaks. His 1986 ascent of Mount Everest, without bottled oxygen and in a nighttime push with climbing partner Jean Troillet that took just 40 hours, stunned the alpine climbing world and made headlines in climbing magazines and newspapers. “We didn’t intend to

climb Everest in two days; we just set off and we were fortunate to do it in two days,” he told last year’s Trento Film Festival in Italy, in a video posted on its webite. Mr. Loretan’s legendary exploits in the mountains were nearly overshadowed by the debate he prompted on babyshaking in Switzerland after he pleaded guilty to negligent manslaughter in the death of his 7-monthold son.
ERNESTO SABATO, 99, a writer who led the government’s probe of crimes committed by Argentina’s dictatorship, has died in Buenos Aires. The writer died of complications of bronchitis, his friend and collaborator Elvira Gonzalez Mr. Sabato Fraga told in 2002 Radio Mitre.

the soldiers who led Argentina from 1976 to 1983. He called his work of helping to document the murders, tortures and illegal arrests committed by a regime he had initially supported a “descent into hell.” The commission’s report, “Never Again,” served as the basis for prosecuting key figures in the dictatorship after the return to civilian rule. Official and independent agencies estimate that 12,000 to 30,000 were killed by government forces seeking to wipe out leftists. Like many Argentines, Mr. Sabato initially welcomed the coup that overthrew President Isabel Peron following economic problems, social turmoil and clashes with leftist guerrillas, but he grew critical by 1979, denouncing censorship.

Briefly: World NATO strike kills Gadhafi’s son; leader escapes TRIPOLI, Libya — A NATO missile struck a house in Tripoli where Moammar Gadhafi and his wife were staying Saturday, missing the Libyan leader but killing his youngest son and three grandchildren, a government spokesman said. Seif al-Arab Gadhafi was the sixth son of Gadhafi and brother of the better-known Seif alIslam Gadhafi. The younger Gadhafi had spent much of his time in Germany in recent years. Moammar Gadhafi and his wife were in the Tripoli house of his 29-year-old son, Seif al-Arab Gadhafi, when it was hit by at least one bomb dropped from a NATO warplane, according to Libyan spokesman Moussa Ibrahim. “The leader himself is in good health,” Ibrahim said. “He was not harmed. The wife is also in good health.”

Volunteers tending to storm-ravaged victims Tornadoes’ death toll reaches more than 340 across 7 states By Jeffrey Collins and Michael Kunzelman The Associated Press
PRATT CITY, Ala. — Whether it’s refilling blood-pressure medicine or patrolling neighborhoods in a grocery-filled pickup truck, tornado victims in splintered Southern towns said volunteers are ensuring they’re well-fed and warm at night. At least a few, though, say they need more from the government: help getting into their homes and cleaning up endless debris. Across the twister-ravaged South, students and church groups aggressively tended to those who needed it most, clearing away wreckage and handing out food and water. Wednesday’s tornadoes marked the second-deadliest day of twisters in U.S. history, leaving 341 people dead across seven states — including 249 in Alabama. Thousands were hurt, and hundreds of homes and businesses have vanished into rubble. Federal Emergency Management Agency workers handed out information to people in shelters about how to apply for help.
National Guard soldiers stood watch, searched for survivors and helped sift through debris. Churches transformed into buzzing community hubs. In Tuscaloosa, Ala., a Red Cross shelter was handing out clothes and providing counseling for folks like Carol Peck, 55, and her 77-year-old mother. She said the shelter’s First Aid station even refilled her blood pressure pills without her having to ask.
Medication refilled She can’t explain how it happened, but she suspects her clinic contacted the shelter. “Evidently, because I sure didn’t call,” she said. “They knew I was here. I don’t know how, but they found me.” In Ringgold, Ga., Poplar Springs Baptist Church had been transformed into an informal help center. Crews were dispatched from the church, some with chain saws to chop through the debris, others with bottled water and food. Inside the gymnasium, a barbecue buffet was feeding those without power.
“You’ve got elderly people out there who can’t get out there and do it,” said volunteer Kathleen Hensley, 40, of Ringgold. “They need a hand.” The University of Alabama’s athletic department was pitching in around hard-hit Tuscaloosa, with more than 50 athletic training students giving Gatorade, bottled water and protein bars to residents.
University helps out “Anything they have to give athletes, they’re giving away,” said Jenny Sanders, one of the volunteers. And most were grateful to get whatever they could. Niki Eberhart, whose home in the Alberta City neighborhood of Tuscaloosa was shredded by the tornado, said Saturday that her husband and two children are getting everything they need at the shelter. And it isn’t the first time they’ve counted on the Red Cross. When their home in Meridian, Miss., burned down last year in an electrical fire, Eberhart said the Red Cross responded within an hour. “We feel like we’ve been blessed,” she said. “Both times it could have been much worse. We lost things. Material possessions can be replaced.”
President Obama says gas, oil tax breaks ‘need to end’ By Jim Kuhnhenn
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said oil companies are profiting from rising pump prices and he wants Congress to end $4 billion in annual tax breaks for the oil and gas industry. “These tax giveaways aren’t right,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday. “They aren’t smart. And we need to end them.” Drivers in 22 states are paying more than the national average of $3.91 per gallon. In Alaska, California and Connecticut, it’s $4.20 or more. The price jump has slowed economic growth and hurt Obama’s public approval ratings. Exxon Mobil Corp. last week
reported nearly $11 billion in profits for the first quarter of this year. Competitors also had huge gains. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he plans to consider Obama’s proposal as early as this coming week. The president said money recouped from ending the oil and gas tax subsidies should go to new energy resources and research. He said he refuses to cut spending on clean energy initiatives. “An investment in clean energy today is an investment in a better tomorrow,” he said. “And I think that’s an investment worth making.” Obama’s critics said ending the subsidies would mean tax increases that would end up
costing jobs. “The president may think he’s punishing CEOs of big companies, but his plan will hurt the everyday consumer of energy and imperil the jobs of millions of hardworking people in Americanbased companies,” Rep. James Lankford, a first-term congressman from Oklahoma, said in the Republicans’ weekly address. Eager to show action on gas costs, Obama has pushed to stop the subsidies while also conceding it would not have an immediate effect on prices. He has also called for the Justice Department to investigate possible price fixing and said this week he was also prodding oilproducing countries such as Saudi Arabia to increase production.

THE UNIVERSITY OF California is looking for out-of-state solutions to its money problems.

It followed state House Speaker Gordon Fox’s decision to stop his push for gay marriage and offer civil unions as a compromise. Fox, who is openly gay, said he didn’t believe he could deliver the votes needed for gay marriage to pass but that civil unions legislation would keep the issue alive and grant vital legal rights to same-sex couples. The legislation is expected to be introduced in the coming week.
POLICE SAID A spectator waiting for the space shuttle to launch was hit by a car and killed. Police said 70-year-old John Devoles was walking across the street Friday when he was hit. The street was jammed with cars on both sides of the four-lane highway as drivers tried to catch a glimpse of the space shuttle Endeavour. The launch was later scrubbed. The crash is under investigation. Charges are pending against the driver, who authorities said may have been speeding. Devoles died at a hospital a few hours after being hit. Authorities said he was not walking in a crosswalk.
SHUNNING AN IMMEDIATE overseas honeymoon and opting instead for a quiet weekend at a secret British location, Prince William and Princess Catherine made it clear Saturday they want space for themselves. This fight for privacy is crucial if they are to avoid being hounded like William’s mother, the late Princess Diana, whose every move was tailed. The royal newlyweds started the day by asking the media not to intrude this weekend and to leave them alone when they eventually start their honeymoon. Separately, palace officials also asked the media not to reveal where the couple live in Wales. (Related stories, Pages A5, D1)

June trial date set for hit-and-run suspect By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Michael J. Moyle will be tried in June for allegedly deliberately ramming a car carrying four people — including two small children — last month. The 28-year-old Port Angeles man pleaded not guilty Friday to charges of first-degree assault of a child, two counts of second-
d e g r e e assault, second-degree assault of a child — all of which come with an alternative charge Moyle of vehicular assault — and hit-and-run injury accident. His trial is set for June 20. A four-day trial
is expected. Moyle remained in Clallam County jail Saturday; his bond is $500,000. According to police, Moyle on April 13 chased a sedan from the Albertsons store parking lot at 114 E. Lauridsen Blvd. up South Laurel Street to near Viewcrest Avenue, where he rammed it with his car, sending it into a telephone pole.
The passengers, including a 5-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl, were hospitalized. All were released within a few days. Police said Moyle was picked up about a block away and driven from the scene by Timothy P. Smith. The next day, police said they found a loaded handgun in Smith’s truck, which he is not allowed to possess as a convicted felon.
Smith, 27, of Port Angeles, will be tried June 13 on charges of first-degree rendering criminal assistance and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the vehicle assault. Smith also will be tried July 11 on charges of second-degree possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance.
While searching for Smith, police said they found a stolen motorcycle in his auto body shop and methamphetamine in his house. Smith bailed out of jail April 20. Bail was set at $3,500.

No bikes allowed in skate park, PA says By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Skateboarding may not be a crime, but bicycling is another story — at least in the city’s skate park. Police said they are stepping up enforcement of the park’s no-bike policy because of concerns that two-wheeled thrill seekers are causing too much damage and sometimes displace skateboarders.
Stepping up Last Thursday, officers began stepping up their presence at the park, talking to users about the rule excluding bikes, said Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith. Such “emphasis patrols” will continue indefinitely, he said. But beginning Monday, Smith warned, any violators can expect to
receive a 90-day no-trespass notice or even a fine. “It’s been a continual problem that comes and goes,” he said. “We’re going to approach it this time a little more comprehensively.”
Fines Fines are determined by Clallam County District Court, but Smith said they could range between $60 and $100. The increased enforcement was prompted by a complaint from Doc Reiss, past president of the Nor’Wester Rotary Club, which sponsored the Race Street park. “Somebody got a hold of me and complained that there were so many bicycles in the skate park that their kids couldn’t get in,” he said. “When it got to the point
that skateboarders can’t get into the skate park, that’s when I wrote the letter.” Reiss said he also is concerned of the damage the bikes’ pegs, handlebars and pedals cause to the concrete, which is why they are banned from the park. Corey Delikat, city streets and parks superintendent, said he shares the concerns. “There’s no major damage yet, but it’s bound to happen,” he said. “Once it gets broke,” Delikat added, “there’s not a real good fix. “Obviously, you can patch it . . . but it doesn’t want to hold as well.” Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News

Peninsula College sundial memorial donated Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — On a sunny day, Peninsula College students have a rather large “artful” clock to measure the time. The sundial — which is 8 feet tall, 4 feet wide and 8 feet deep — was donated by the late Honey Davis of Port Angeles in honor of her son, Ben Davis, who died in 2008. The sundial, which casts a shadow and shows the time of day when in direct sunlight, is a polar analemmatic type invented by David Harbour in 1997 and later redesigned by Ben Davis, Peninsula College said in a statement. Because of Ben Davis’ interest in sundials, his mother decided to donate one to the college in his honor, the college said. “Honey Davis’ very generous gift to Peninsula College is deeply appreciated,” said Peninsula College President Tom Keegan. “It’s fitting that it be placed by our Science and Technology Building so that Ben’s amazing engineering skills serve as an inspiration to our students and
encourage them to stop and look and study his sundial.” The sundial, which was placed on a concrete pad specifically made for it in July, was dedicated last month, with Honey Davis and other family and friends present. The sundial was placed in a well-traveled, sunny area, said Mary Hunchberger, executive director of the Peninsula College Foundation, which accepted the art piece. “Students often take time to stop and investigate the substantial sundial.” Ben Davis’ cousin, Ben Schrenzel, said he liked the idea that Davis’ legacy is living on in a way that is both interesting and educational. “Ben had a gifted engineering mind and could do anything with his hands,” Schrenzel said. Although Davis had no formal engineering training, he served as a draftsman for General Motors in Detroit, designing and building tools. For information on the Pictured in front of the sundial redesigned by the late Ben Davis are, from left, Jerry Morris, college or foundation, visit Honey Davis’ son-in-law; Peninsula College President Dr. Tom Keegan; and Ben Schrenzel, Ben Davis’ cousin. www.pencol.edu.

PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
SEATTLE — The Washington State Patrol said a pedestrian who tried to cross Interstate 5 in Seattle early Saturday was hit by a car and caused a spectacular crash, and it’s remarkable no one was killed. Twenty-six-year-old Joel Martinez-Jose was driving a 1993 Honda Civic northbound when he tried unsuccessfully to swerve to avoid 39-yaer-old Thau Qual Le. The impact threw Le clear of the roadway, and
the Civic wound up in the next lane over where it was almost completely demolished by a U.S. Postal Service semitruck. Investigators said it’s amazing that MartinezJose suffered only minor injuries. Le was taken to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition and is expected to survive. The highway was closed for several hours.
third, the Kennewick — destined for the Point Defiance-to-Tahlequah route once it enters service sometime this winter — is now under construction. The Chetzemoka was slated to go into service in August but was delayed until November because of problems with the fixedpitch propeller. The new ferry will have a variable-pitch propeller, which will make it easier to maneuver, the state ferries system said.

OLYMPIA — The last step to start shutting down the only coal-burning power plant left in Washington state was taken Friday when Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a measure that mandates the gradual closure of the TransAlta facility in Centralia. Gregoire signed the bill at the plant surrounded by officials from the Canadian company that owns it, plant workers, environmentalists and other lawmakers — marking an end to a prolonged fight over air pollution that culminated in this legislative session. Conservationists applauded a move they said would clear haze from Olympic National Park and Mount Rayonier. “Today, Gov. Gregoire signed into law legislation that will literally clear the air above two of Washington state’s most beautiful and iconic natural areas, Mount Rainier and Olympic National Parks,” said Stephanie Kodish of the National Parks Conservation Association in a statement. Gregoire acknowledged the importance of the plant to the region when she
signed the law. “The Centralia power plant has long been a critical part of the regional economy,” Gregoire said. “The men and women here who keep it running not only power homes and businesses, you serve as the backbone of your communities. We will build on your skills and your know-how to power our grid and our future.” The debate behind the shutdown centered on environmentalists pushing for cleaner air, while local lawmakers argued that closing the TransAlta plant would result in a loss of jobs for Lewis County and the surrounding area. Earlier this year, lawmakers reached a compromise that calls for TransAlta to provide $55 million in economic development assistance and to install new pollution controls at the plant before it finally closes by 2025. TransAlta also will get expedited permits to build a natural-gas-fired plant in Lewis County to come online by 2020. The Canadian company also will be allowed to enter into long-term agreements to sell its electricity to other utilities.
“TransAlta is a progressive power company that strives to produce more electricity with less environmental impact, every day,” said TransAlta President and CEO Steve Snyder. “With this bill, TransAlta will be able to continue powering this community with new investments in power production and new jobs.” The bill would shut down one of two boilers at the TransAlta plant by 2020 and the second by 2025. The Centralia facility is a major source of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. “Today, we are one significant step closer to being truly free from coal in the Northwest, which will bring about a cleaner, safer, healthier and more prosperous future,” said Bruce Nilles, deputy conservation director for the Sierra Club, in a written statement.
Conservationists say closure will help clear haze from park
PORT TOWNSEND — The MV Salish finished its initial sea trials last week and is scheduled for delivery to Washington State Ferries on Thursday. The Salish is expected to join the MV Chetzemoka on the Port Townsend-Coupeville route in July. “We are on time and within the budget,” said state ferries system spokeswoman Marta Coursey on Friday. “Everything is going well.” Sea trials for the new ferry took place Monday through Wednesday with state ferries system Deputy Chief George Capacci and other personnel aboard to witness the demonstration of stopping distances, steering and other operational tests. It is scheduled to be towed to the Todd Pacific Shipyards facility in Seattle before being transferred to state ferries system control.

cost over $1.4 million Continued from A1 Sandoval acknowledged City Manager David Timmons, Planning Director Rick Sepler, Public Works Director Ken Clow and project manager Tom Miller for their roles in the building’s renovation. Among those attending was Dorothy Cotton, whose family members were the most recent private owners of the building. Cotton said she was honored that her family name was being preserved and glad the space was being used to promote art. The one-story brick building was built as a three-story structure in 1888, said Bill Tennent, Jefferson County Historical Society executive director. It was a popular resort that contained a saloon, wine parlor and a club room. At various times since, it has been a hardware store, bowling alley and mortuary. In 1955, the Cotton family removed the top two stories after a wind storm damaged them. From 1975 to 2009, the structure housed the Port Townsend Police Department, which has moved to Mountain View Commons. The city now will rent the space for various functions and display rotating art exhibitions. “We had an old building here, but we have preserved it in a way that we can use it for community programs,” Timmons said.
Timmons said the path to preservation had several obstacles, including the removal of five fuel tanks and the eradication of lead paint and mold. The project cost $1,415,000. The work was funded by a Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation Grant and a 2008 city bond. The current exhibition in the building explores the development of Gerard Tsutakawa’s “Salish Sea Circle,” which will be installed on the corner of Water and Madison streets and dedicated Saturday, May 14.
$70,000 bronze statue Another project in the sprucing-up of the Civic District, the $70,000 bronze statue was funded through the city’s One Percent for Arts Program, which allocates 1 percent of the capitalized costs of eligible public construction projects for public art, and the city bond. Pope Marine Park in the Civic District also was renovated, with $224,000 from the city bond, and Madison Street improvements stretched from Memorial Field to the Pope Marine Building at 100 Madison St. — a $678,000 project funded by a Public Works Board Small Communities in Rural Counties grant and the 2008 city bond. The $2 million Water Street streetscape project placed overhead utilities underground and installed a stormwater pipe with grant funding from the state
departments of Transportation and Ecology, the Jefferson County Public Infrastructure Program and the city bond. Also as part of the downtown work, the Wave Viewing Gallery’s damaged pilings were replaced in a $758,000 project funded by an Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account grant and the city bond. Still to come this summer is the retrofitting of the Wave Viewing Gallery for handicapped access and the conversion of the Tidal Clock into an amphitheater.
Founders’ Day Today, a variety of children’s art activities are planned from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Pope Marine Building at Water and Madison streets during Main Street’s Art Wave, and the Jefferson County Historical Society will hold its annual Founders’ Day celebration at 1 p.m. in City Council chambers, 540 Water St. Founders’ Day will be followed by a reception in the Cotton Building that will feature desserts prepared from recipes from the newly published Rothschild House Dessert Cookbook.

PORT ANGELES — Border Patrol activities will be the focus of a protest today at the planned site of a new building for Border Patrol agents. The Stop the Checkpoints Committee plans a May Day Rally from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at East First and Penn streets, where Homeland Security will begin work to modify the former Eagles Aerie building into new Border Patrol head-
quarters. The rally will be in support of worker and immigrant rights, said organizers with the group, which protests “the erosion of civil rights and liberties on the North Olympic Peninsula by the U.S. Border Patrol,” according to www.stopthe checkpoints.com. Those attending are asked to bring signs, noisemakers, drums and banners. David Cowan, member of Stop the Checkpoints, said a new Border Patrol headquarters in Port Angeles does not have any “long-term benefits” to the North Olympic Peninsula. “It’s a manufactured need,” he said. “The need has not been established.”

The money could be better spent on the nation’s southern border, Cowan added. The new facility is part of a broader federal effort to upgrade Border Patrol facilities, said project manager Mike Sangren of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Friday. “This money was earmarked at least last year for these projects,” he said, noting Bellingham also is getting a new Border Patrol headquarters. “It’s just the direction the Department of Homeland Security has been given, to expand and allocate money to build stations, and we are just executing their plan,” he said.
The Border Patrol denied a Peninsula Daily News request for arrest data for the Port Angeles station, citing national security concerns. The agency instead provided arrest data for the Blaine Sector, which includes Alaska, Oregon and the western half of Washington. Border Patrol agents made 673 arrests in the 2010 fiscal year ending Sept. 30, a 20 percent drop from 2009 and about two for every agent. The entire sector has 322 agents at stations in Port Angeles, Blaine, Bellingham and Sumas, the Border Patrol said.

It won’t include the Eagles’ renowned “floating” dance floor from the old lodge, though some members did take pieces of it, DeJoy said. The Penn Street lodge has been a second home for many Eagles for many years, DeJoy said. “But we also realize we need to downsize,” he added.

Fluoride foes file lawsuits against PA, Forks By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
Fluoride opponents filed a lawsuit last week against the cities of Port Angeles and Forks in hopes of ending the practice of fluoridating public water on the North Olympic Peninsula. The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Clallam County Superior Court, is the third the activists have filed against Port Angeles and the first against Forks. Forks has fluoridated its water for nearly six decades, while Port Angeles has used fluoride since 2006. Anti-fluoride activists from the Port Angeles and Sequim areas began challenging Port Angeles’ use of fluoride before it started. A lawsuit filed in 2005 seeking to require the city to meet criteria under the state Environmental Protection Act before fluoridating its
water was tossed out of Jefferson County Superior Court. The state Court of Appeals upheld that decision in 2007. Then last year, the state Supreme Court sided with City Hall in a legal challenge seeking to put antifluoride initiatives on the Port Angeles ballot. The petitioners — Protect the Peninsula’s Future, Clallam County Citizens for Safe Drinking Water and retired Sequim physician Eloise Kailin — are now challenging the use of fluoride in the two communities on the basis that it doesn’t meet other state criteria. The suit points to a section of the Washington Administrative Code that says drug products must have an approved new drug application from the Federal Food and Drug Administration to be used in the state.
Kailin said the petitioners believe the types of fluoride used by the cities — sodium fluoride in Forks an fluorosilicic acid in Port Angeles — have never received such an approval. They base that on a public records request with the federal agency for the NDA documents but were told by the agency that they don’t exist, she said. “As far as I know, this is the first time this issue has been raised,” Kailin said. But why now in Forks? Clallam County Citizens for Safe Drinking Water President Jim Bourget said it was time to expand the groups’ efforts. “I just think to get it out of both systems would be the prudent thing to do,” he said. Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon said he wasn’t surprised the city is included in the lawsuit because the petitioners have been seeking
information on its water fluoridation program for a while. But Monohon he said he is confident that fluoridation, intended to fight cavities, has been good for the people of Forks. “We’ve been fluoridating water since the 1950s,” Monohon said. “We believe it is a safe and effective thing to do.”
‘Safe and effective’ Forks City Attorney Rod Fleck said he had partially reviewed the lawsuit, and he questioned the validity of its claims during an interview Saturday. “I don’t really understand their attempt to loop in some letter from the FDA that we’ve never seen,” he said. “They’ve laced together a group of things that myself, [Port Angeles City Attorney] Bill Bloor and others are
still trying to sort through.” Kent Myers, Port Angeles city manager, said Friday he hadn’t reviewed the suit and couldn’t comment on its legal claims. Bloor said Saturday he was out of town attending a Washington State Association of Municipal Attorneys Conference last week and had not had time to review it. The petitioners said they are opposed to the use of fluoride in public drinking water over concerns that too much can cause adverse health effects. Overuse of fluoride, both a naturally occurring mineral and industrial by-product, can cause teeth spotting and brittle bones. A National Academy of Sciences report from 2006 said brittle bones can be caused by a lifetime of drinking fluoride at amounts of more than 4 parts per million.
Forks and Port Angeles reduced their fluoride amounts from 1 part per million to 0.7 parts per million after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced it was reducing the recommended range to 0.7 parts per mill ion from 0.7 to 1.2 parts per million. The federal agency announced the proposed change in January after a recent government study that found two out of five adolescents have tooth streaking or spotting because they are receiving too much fluoride. Port Angeles started fluoridating its water with the help of a $260,000 grant from the Washington Dental Service Foundation. The agreement with the foundation says the city must continue to use fluoride for 10 years unless a court order stops it.

Artwork: Paintings were
inappropriate, some say Continued from A1
But some lawmakers felt the abstract paintings were inappropriate in the state Capitol. “This was during the same time when [photographer Robert] Mapplethorpe’s pictures were thought to be obscene and there was a controversy about using public funds to support art,” said Centrum Executive Director John MacElwee. “These images were also thought to be obscene and were removed from the Capitol building,” MacElwee said. In 1993, the House put $162,000 in the budget to remove the Hercules paintings — nearly double what the state paid Spafford to create them, according to a Fort Worden statement. Kessler, who was in the first term of her legislative career, fought unsuccessfully to keep the murals. One version of the images that were presented to Kessler hung in her office for 14 years. “I was fortunate to be in the Capitol for one term while the murals were in the gallery,” she said. “After they were taken down, there were people who wanted to bury them, but after I became majority leader, I used the influence of that office to say that I was going to put them in a place where people could see them and enjoy them.” Kessler said the images depicted contained subtle messages for lawmakers, which were ignored because of the controversy. One image, which was characterized as a “rape” by one legislator, actually had a different meaning, Kessler said. “It wasn’t a rape but a
Kessler speaks out against state park fees Peninsula Daily News
PORT TOWNSEND — Retired Rep. Lynn Kessler spoke against charging for state park access during a Centrum meeting Friday. A bill that would initiate a $10 one-day parking fee or an annual $30 “Discover Pass” to use state parks across the North Olympic Peninsula and statewide is on Gov. Chris Gregoire’s desk. The fee would be charged to users of state parks — Fort Worden and Fort Flagler near Port Townsend, Bogachiel near Forks and Sequim Bay on the Peninsula — as well as state Department of Natural Resources and state Fish & Wildlife recreation areas. murder — not that it’s any better,” she said. “Hercules is murdering the Amazon queen because of a rumor, and the lesson to us is don’t go on rumors, make sure it is true and that you think things through before you act,” Kessler said. Kessler added that the artist, who is a personal friend of hers, was disturbed that the messages were taken out of context and “turned into something they are not.” Upon the completion of Kessler’s last term, she was allowed to receive gifts costing more than $50, so Centrum decided to give her the prints as a token of appreci-
Kessler said during the gathering at Fort Worden State Park that such a move would keep poor people out of what should be a public area. “I’ve lost the battle on this,” she said. “But there will need to be some kind of allowance for Fort Worden because I don’t see how they will be able to get $10 more from everyone who comes here for [Centrum’s Festival of American] Fiddle Tunes.” Fort Worden State Park also is home to businesses, a Peninsula College branch campus and other educational institutions, the Port Townsend Marine Science Center and Centrum’s music festivals in and around McCurdy Pavilion.

The mural images were taken to a museum in Centralia, where they are now on display.

Gregoire vetoes parts of medical pot bill By Mike Baker
The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire vetoed key parts of a bill Friday that aimed to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries, saying she could not approve a measure that might put state workers at risk of federal criminal charges. The state’s two U.S. attorneys previously told Gregoire that state employees would not be immune from prosecution for their role in regulating the industry.
Licensing scheme? Prosecutors contend that the measure would create a licensing scheme that permits large-scale marijuana cultivation and distribution. A union that represents thousands of state employees asked Gregoire to veto the bill. “I cannot disregard federal law and our two U.S. attorneys on the chance that state employees may never be prosecuted,” Gregoire said. “What do you say to
them if they are? What would you tell that employee?” There are three medical marijuana dispensaries on the North Olympic Peninsula, and local and regional law enforcement have said they can operate according to existing law.
Spokane raid The veto came just a day after federal authorities raided at least two dispensaries in Spokane. It immediately brought condemnation from advocates who noted that other states with similar laws haven’t seen state workers charged. “Unfortunately, I don’t think you can get any better than the solution that was on her desk that she chose to veto,” said Shankar Narayan, legislative director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Seattle. “She should have signed the entire bill.” Federal law still prohibits marijuana for medical uses. Gregoire said she is interested in working with governors in other states on
pushing to change federal law and reclassify medical marijuana as a Schedule 2 substance, putting it on par with addictive but accepted drugs such as morphine or oxycodone.
Murky areas The bill sought to address murky areas of the state’s medical marijuana laws. Dispensaries have popped up all around the state since the voterapproved medical marijuana law from 1998, even though those outlets aren’t specifically allowed nor forbidden in the statutes. Some police officers and prosecutors worry that the operations could be shielding broader criminal enterprises. Current state law does not allow for marijuana sales and says patients must grow it themselves or designate a caregiver to grow it for them. Proponents of the law contend that patients with terminal or debilitating conditions do not have the ability or resources to grow marijuana, so they believe retail-like access points are
needed to prevent a black market for the product. Gregoire did approve of parts of the bill, such as increased protections from state penalties. She also approved of cooperative grow operations. The bill allows groups of patients to collaborate on community gardens, which could have up to 45 plants. Only qualified patients would be allowed to use the marijuana grown in these gardens.
Pot registry Gregoire said she wants to continue working with the Legislature on passing other parts of the bill, such as a pot registry that would be accessible to law enforcement. State Sen. Jeanne KohlWelles, D-Seattle, said she was disappointed by the veto of a bill that was more than a year in the making. She said she believes the risk of federal prosecution of state employees is low and that the state needs the provisions to help qualifying patients get access to a legal and reliable source

Nash Huber’s latest award named for kindred spirit By Diane Urbani de la Paz
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — Nash Huber calls himself the “local, radical hippie” and “odd guy out.” And for years — throughout the 1980s at least — his Nash’s Organic Produce operation grew the kind of food that was not all-therage in his adopted hometown of Sequim. But over the past decade, a revolution has taken place. Americans — including Seattleites and the people of the North Olympic Peninsula — developed an appetite for the organic carrots, cauliflower, strawberries and now wheat from Dungeness Valley fields. Since his start here in 1979, Huber has expanded his operation to more than 110 varieties of vegetables, herbs, fruit and berries on some 400 acres, though much of that is leased, not owned, by Nash’s. And along with watching his produce sell speedily at farmers markets from Port Angeles to Seattle’s University District, Huber has collected an armload of awards, the latest of which is the Pellegrini, named for a kindred spirit from Tuscany. The late Angelo “Babbo” Pellegrini emigrated from Italy to Washington state as a boy who spoke no English; he grew up to teach Shakespeare at the University of Washington. Pellegrini loved to invite students and other professors to his home, where he sat them down for feasts of foods he’d grown and prepared himself. He wrote nine books

about the joys of fresh vegetables, good friends and lively conversation; among them is The Food Lover’s Garden, in which Pellegrini brought Americans inside his Eden of delights. “Nash approaches life the way Pellegrini did — put honest, good food in front of people and relate to them. It’s a tremendously important component to a good life,” 2006 Pellegrini winner Jon Rowley said when he nominated Huber for the award. “Nash’s produce has helped Seattle change the way it eats,” Rowley added.
But the Pellegrini plaque, presented Wednesday at Seattle’s Paramount Theater at a restaurant showcase called the Voracious Tasting, was handed not to Huber but to his wife of 17 years, Patty McManus-Huber. Nash Huber, you see, was busy enjoying life, nature, food and friendship in Moab, Utah. An avid mountain biker, Huber takes this trip every year during the last week of April. “It’s about 75 degrees right now,” Huber said Thursday afternoon,

part, said her husband would have hit it off with Pellegrini. Both men want people to sit down and share good food and talk, she said. Pellegrini, McManusHuber learned, loved to engage people — just as Nash Huber does in something called “men’s breakfast.” It’s been at the Huber house every Thursday for 22 years and has grown to include about a dozen guys. “It’s not ‘no women allowed,’” McManus-Huber said. She’s stayed for the meal a few times before rushing to work. “Everybody brings something,” such as fresh eggs from the men’s hens, jam and applesauce to go with waffles made with Nash’s Organic wheat. “They make a huge scramble with fresh vegetables. And they love talking. They talk politics, especially local politics,” McMa-
nus-Huber said. “It’s turned into an ad hoc support group — not deliberately; it’s just ‘Hey, we’re friends.’ “And they’ve helped each other through a lot of things. There have been bouts with cancer, divorces, deaths in the family.” Famed Seattle chef Greg Atkinson, in a tribute to Huber in the Seattle Weekly, writes about the men’s breakfast as one reason the farmer was chosen for the Pellegrini. Huber, as host, “is the glue that holds the group together,” using local food and freewheeling discussions to “nurture what’s growing, whether it’s a field of carrots or an entire community.” “Nash certainly does bring people to the table,” McManus-Huber added.

JOYCE — The Crescent School Board approved cuts that include four layoffs when it met last week. A half-time Spanish teacher and a half-time special-education teacher and two para-educators could be laid off if expected state cuts materialize. The board voted unanimously to approve a “reduced education plan” to balance an estimated $319,000 in anticipated cuts from the state Legislature, Superintendent Tom Anderson said Friday. “If the amount of cuts we are anticipating doesn’t materialize, we hope to add back some of the programs,” Anderson said. “Our first priority is to add the staffing back,” he added. “We are making cuts as far away from classrooms as we can and trying to preserve programs for kids.”

In addition to the layoffs, the board approved $75,000 in cuts to materials and services or other contracts and cuts such as a $26,000 cut of its extended-day programs, which allow students to go to school early or stay late for special music, crafts or homework help, Anderson said. The board also voted to take $75,000 from the reserve fund, he said. All of the cuts were made in anticipation of what is expected from the state Legislature, which has not finalized a budget for the next biennium. “Every school district is in a similar situation — making cuts and going into next year with a lot less resources this year and every year, it seems,” Anderson said.

Parents’ latest purchase a hurdle MY MOTHER CALLED me a few days ago to proudly announce that she and my father now have voice mail, which they don’t. What they have is an W. Bruce answering Cameron machine my mother found at a garage sale, which is where I think she also found my birthday presents: four T-shirts that all say “Call Me Pinky” on the front. When I dutifully wear the T-shirts to the gym, people come up to me and say, “Hey, Pinky.” I don’t like that. My mother likes garage sales because they are a less expensive place to buy things she doesn’t need. She brings her purchases home and puts them, naturally, in her garage. Maybe someday she’ll have the inventory for a garage sale of her own. Before this newest technological addition to their household, my parents’ answering machine
was my father. My father sits by the telephone and basically hasn’t moved since 1981. He would take messages like, “Oh, your doctor called.” “When?” my mom would ask. “I don’t know. Awhile ago.” “What did he say?” “I don’t know. Does it matter? You’ve already outlived your life expectancy.” For my father, the fact that he beat his life expectancy in overtime means the only thing left to focus on is drinking champagne in the locker room. My mother, though, wants to take another lap, so she goes to the doctor pretty much every day. The way things are going, they’ll both outlive me. When I call my parents now, here’s what happens. First, the phone rings four times. (When my father was the answering machine, it usually rang until the ballgame was over.) Then a woman’s mechanical voice comes on. Mechanical Voice: The party you are trying to reach is not available to take your call . . . At this point, you hear my father.
Dad: What? There’s a woman talking. Mechanical Voice: At the tone . . . Mom: What do you mean, a voice? Dad: I’m telling you, there’s some woman on the phone. Mechanical Voice: At the end of your message . . . Mom: Well, maybe someone is calling. Give it to me. Hello? Hello? Dad: No, we’re supposed to be recording our message. Give it to me. Hello? Where’s the thing we wrote down? Mom: I just had it. Dad: Well, where is it? Mom: Here. Dad: That’s not it. That’s the letter I wrote to the home association. Mom: You wrote the home association again? Do you know how humiliating that is? Dad: Just find the script. Mom: I have to see those people every day. Dad: Here it is. We’re not home right now. Please . . . Mom: Say who it is. Dad: What?
Mom: Don’t just say we’re not home, say it is the Cameron residence. (At this point, if you have met my parents, you already know it is the Cameron residence.) Dad: You have reached the Camerons. We’re not home . . . Mom: Don’t say we’re not home. What if it’s burglars? Say we can’t come to the phone. Dad: We’re home, but we can’t come to the phone. Mom: Well, that just sounds rude. Dad: Do you want to do it? Mechanical Voice: Thank you. (Beep) Me: Hi, Mom and Dad, it’s me, your son, leaving a message on your high-tech voice mail. (There’s a sudden crashing noise, the sound of my father’s breathing, and in the background, a ballgame.) Dad: Hello? Me: Hi! (The sound of an extension being picked up.) Mom: Don’t hang up! Dad: Who’s that? Mom: It’s me, who do you think? Dad: Where are you?
Mom: I’m upstairs! Dad: Why are you shouting? Me: She’s not shouting. It just sounds louder because she’s on the extension. Mom: Who’s that? Dad: It’s me. Me: Hi, Mom. Mom: Bruce? Why do you sound so far away? Me: It’s because Dad’s on the extension. Mom: What’s he doing on the extension? Dad: I answered the phone! Mom: I thought I answered the phone. Mechanical Voice: Sorry, you’ve reached the maximum length of time for your message. Thank you for calling. Goodbye. (Click.) (There’s complete silence from the phone as my parents process this event.) Me: This voice mail thing is working out pretty well. Mom: Bruce? Who was that woman?

“He’s all about creating an image for himself. All Republican candidates are unacceptable, but the ideal pairing would be with Sarah Palin. That would guarantee the Democrats would win again.”
“I’m a little concerned because I don’t know what political experience he’s had. I’m kind of on the fence. He looks good on TV, but I’m not sure.”
“I think if he ran, it’d turn out to be a joke. He’s good at what he does as a businessman but not a world leader. We don’t need a man like that. We have enough problems.”
“Atrocious. We don’t need another Republican in office. He’s more concerned about his money and not the country’s morals and what’s right for the country.”
“Don’t like the idea. The rich will just get richer. He’s not a good candidate. He doesn’t know us normal people. If he was elected, he’d probably say to us, ‘You’re fired.’”

Peninsula Voices Change cleanup It’s my experience that Olympic National Park bends over backward to discourage nondesignated trails from inland roads to remote coastal areas yet conveniently uses these trails to facilitate cleanup of these beaches around Earth Day. Unfortunately, in recent years, wooded areas near and behind campsites away from the beach in these remote places have become eyesores of debris dump piles. Importantly, there is a way to reduce and eventually eliminate this growing situation and accommodate all users of these beaches. How? By moving beach cleanup day to early or mid-summer. This would give late winter and spring beachcombers the full opportunity of salvaging things that are of value to them and should lighten the
burden of those cleaning up the beaches later in the year. Additionally, if the program is properly managed, more people could contribute to the process. Last year, as a beachcomber, I packed out more than 400 pounds of collectable debris before beach cleanup day April 17. Some of this debris would have ended up in these growing piles back in the woods. Other debris would have been left on the beach because of weight and/or bulk consideration. We need a smarter winwin approach to keeping our beaches relatively clean while managing them for all public users. Stan Fouts, Forks
overwhelming to county officials that often problems never get fixed — at least not without a “study” by someone first, thereby squandering many dollars that could have been used for part of the project. But I was reminded by the letter April 27 about the Deer Park underpass [“Deadly curve”] and wrong thinking once again prevailing over good judgement. Life on the North Olympic Peninsula lends well toward a maze-like and circular sense, where we go into town, do our thing and go back home, always on the same road — U.S. Highway 101. When “the big one” hits next week or year or decade, and Morse Creek bridge falls down (and other bridges?), people of Bridge issues Port Angeles are stranded.

Theater patrons or residents may then take that route to Port Angeles as well and also have another possible escape route from west of Morse Creek. Clallam County planners had best tell Olympia that we’ll need help getting in and out of town and not merely off Deer Park Road, so appropriate those funds as such. Greg Houghton, Port Angeles

‘Akin to theft’ The U.S. has serious debt and economic problems that need to be addressed, but there is no near-term crisis. Presently, our national debt, at 96 percent of gross domestic product, is higher than some and lower than other industrialized nations. We will resolve this problem over the next 10 years or more. In the end, it will be resolved by the usual means of ending our wars, stronger economic growth, health care and other spending reforms, and otherwise making sure that we tax enough to cover our spending. Unfortunately, there are those who benefit from the high-hysteria approach that has been injected into our debt debate. Conservatives view it as an opportunity to wreck essential social programs.
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan set out immediately to destroy Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security while slashing taxes for the wealthy and corporations. Sens. Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul and Mike Lee recently released their “Social Security Solvency and Sustainability Act.” Under this plan, Social Security surplus funds (taxes less benefits) will be increased from the present $2.6 trillion to $6.2 trillion. It slashes benefits so severely that none of the $6.2 trillion is ever intended to be repaid to Social Security. These Social Security funds will be “borrowed” for other government purposes as they have been for the past 30 years (wars and lower taxes). This is more akin to theft than borrowing. They now want Social Security, which had nothing to do with this deficit, to bail them out. The real deficit is in the honesty and character of those who are perpetrating this financial fraud on the American people. Malcolm D. McPhee, Sequim

Rant of the Week A RANT AGAINST commercials that show babies, kids and adults chewing food with their mouth open, food dripping out of the corners of their mouth, licking food from around their mouth. It’s disgusting, and nobody really wants to see that mess.
. . . and other Rants WHY IS IT, seeing how popular tea is to drink these days, that we are still having it served in all kinds of clunky coffee servers, along with thick, heavy mugs, lukewarm water and plastic containers of substitute cream? The correct way is a teapot of boiling water, with a cup and saucer, teaspoon, a small pitcher of milk and a bowl of sugar with a spoon to serve it. PEOPLE, PLEASE, BE responsible for your animals and keep them safe. If we all did this, we wouldn’t have to thank our neighbors for waking us up in the middle of the night to tell us our beloved pet has been hit by a car. Would you also let your children roam around in the streets after dark? TO SEQUIM BUSINESSES: If you’re going to advertise an Easter event for kids from 10 a.m. to noon, please organize it so it actually runs until noon. To have it finished at 10:05 a.m. was heartbreaking to the little ones. I WANT TO rant about the Easter egg hunt at the Pumpkin Patch. While the idea was good, the follow-through was abysmal. Parking was a nightmare. There was nobody in charge.
Cars parking everywhere, blocking the street. We got there at 9:07 a.m., and none of my kids got any eggs because they were all gone. A BIG RANT to drivers who, after replacing a headlight, fail to aim it properly, thus blinding oncoming cars. A BIG RANT that Olympic National Park isn’t going to have the Whiskey Bend Road open for hiking the Humes Ranch Loop trail until September. I want them to open it now. EDITOR’S NOTE: Whiskey Bend Road is closed to all vehicle traffic but open to pedestrians, bicyclists and stock users. RANT TO PEOPLE who move into a retirement community who don’t think it is not going to look like a nursing home. What, you don’t think you’re going to get old? Insurance doesn’t pay nursing homes for taking care of you for just being old. SOMEBODY RAN OVER my phone in the Starbucks parking lot and did not stop when I yelled at them.

When money matters in sport ONE OF THE more unpopular remedies for cash-strapped high school athletics programs is pay to play. That a stuMatt dent might not participate in Schubert sports simply because his or her family doesn’t have enough money to pay for it comes off as unjust. Unfortunately, shrinking budgets have left many North Olympic Peninsula administrators with no choice. It’s either institute pay-to-play or start cutting programs entirely. That doesn’t mean coaches have to like it, especially when they start to see their own programs suffer. Sequim track and field coach Brad Moore said he has definitely noticed a difference with his because of pay to play. Sequim has required students to pay to play three times during his 16-year tenure as coach. Each time, his team’s numbers have dropped significantly. In fact, accord- Moore ing to Moore, two of his three lowest turnouts were during pay-to-play years. When the district first tried it for one year in the early 2000s, he went from averaging 65-plus athletes a year to 48. After it was ALSO . . . brought back the ■ Prep past two years, standings Moore’s roster size for baseball, fell to 54 in 2010 softball, and a career low of soccer/B3 43 this spring. “For track it kills you, because you really rely on depth. It’s a key part of it,” said Moore, who has coached six state champions during the past six years. “Part of it is track usually gets kind of peripheral athletes. They are good at stuff, but they don’t turn out for the other sports.” Thus, asking for a start-up fee at the beginning of the season likely turns some athletes away. It doesn’t help that Sequim has one of the higher pay-to-play fees in the area. At $75 per sport (the third sport is free), it is double that of archrival Port Angeles ($37.50). Like many other districts that do pay-to-play, Sequim does offer special scholarships for those in need. A couple of the athletes on Moore’s teams were even recipients of that money. Still, he insists there are others who are likely not coming out because of pay to play. “Unless you have kids who come forward and actually say, ‘Hey I’d like to do this, but [I don’t have enough money],’ you don’t know who give the information to,” Moore said. “It’s tough. “I understand why it had to happen. When they tell you they slashed X amount of dollars out of the budget, you have to find something to make it work. But I don’t like it, because I think it keeps kids from coming out, and I think I have good evidence to prove that.”
Seattle goes for quantity Hawks pick up seven players in final three rounds of draft By Tim Booth The Associated Press
RENTON — K.J. Wright wanted to scream. The situation dictated he whisper. When Wright wasn’t taken in the third round of the NFL draft Friday, the Mississippi State linebacker knew that
Saturday could get a little odd and a little awkward. Wright knew he was going to get drafted. The problem came with the timing. Would Wright get the phone call he’s always wanted to receive in the middle of his college graduation ceremonies? Yep.
“As soon as I got off the phone, two minutes later I had to go up there and walk across the stage,” Wright said. The drafting of Wright was the beginning of a busy final day of the NFL draft for the Seattle Seahawks. Picking seven times in the final three rounds, Seattle addressed the defensive side of the ball after spending the first two days working to better an offensive line that was a problem in Pete Carroll’s first year.
Several area athletes are starting to figure out what the future holds. All-state Port Angeles girls basketball player Jessica Madison committed to Division II University of Alaska-Anchorage back in November. Here’s a few other athletes who have made college decisions: ■ A.J. Konopaski (PA, Sr.) — Baseball pitcher/first baseman committed to Division III Pacific Lutheran University last week. ■ Drew Rickerson (Sequim, Sr.) — Wolves pitcher/outfielder will likely play baseball for Pacific Lutheran University on an academic scholarship.

Price on the mark Husky QB states his case in spring game The Associated Press
SEATTLE — Keith Price completed 20 of 28 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns in the Washington spring game Saturday at Husky Stadium. Price also rushed 29 yards for a touchdown as the Dawgs beat the Huskies 31-14 in front of an estimated crowd of 10,000.
Price, a sophomore, appears to be leading the competition with Nick Montana to replace Jake Locker at quarterback. Locker was taken No. 8 overall in the NFL Draft Thursday by the Tennessee Titans. Montana, a redshirt freshman and the son of Hall of Famer Joe Montana, completed
9 of 20 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Neither quarterback threw an interception. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian has yet to decide whether Price or Montana will start in the season opener Sept. 3 against Eastern Washington. The Dawgs team featured the No. 2 offense and the No. 1 defense. The Huskies team featured the No. 1 offense and No. 2 defense. Price and Montana each played one half with the No. 1 offense. Price started the game with the No. 1 offense.
He started one game last season when Locker was injured. “What Keith Price brought today I thought was really effective not only throwing the football but running the ball,” Sarkisian said. Price threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse, a 13-yard score to DiAndre Campbell and a 2-yard touchdown pass to James Johnson. Price also broke free untouched on a bootleg left for a 29-yard scoring run. He rushed for 53 yards on five carries. Turn

Spartans get split Forks still in playoff race Peninsula Daily News
FORKS — The Forks softball team kept its playoff hopes alive Friday. Splitting a doubleheader with Elma on senior night, the Spartans staved off postseason elimination with one week to go in the SWL-Evergreen Division season.
Jillian Raben went the distance on the mound to lead Forks to a 6-5 win in the first game before the Spartans fell 15-1 in the nightcap. “That’s probably the best game she’s pitched all year,” Forks coach Scott Justus said of Raben’s Game 1 performance. “She kept their stud hitters off balance.
Prep Softball “Her junk was really working for her, and she kept it down.” Walking none and striking out two in seven innings of work, Raben kept the Spartans (3-7 in league, 3-10 overall) in the game. The Forks bats then came alive in the fifth and sixth innings. Turn

Boston aided him when it loaded the bases with no outs four innings later, but had a base running gaffe by Jacoby Ellsbury that helped squelch the threat. “It looks to me that he looks like he’s at his best when it’s a tough situation,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said.

“We’ll assess it all and when the timing’s right we’ll make a decision.” Montana threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to Cody Bruns late in the game. He also tossed a 15-yard touchdown pass to Johnson and rushed for 26 yards on six carries, including a 23-yard scamper. “I think it’s a great battle to watch these guys continue to compete not just with one
another but with themselves and to deal not just with their own play at the moment but some of the adversity that can come with it,” Sarkisian said. “Maybe they struggle for a day and the other guy has a good day. Maybe they have a couple of drops.” Sarkisian likes his options. “They both have improved at a high level,” he said. “To
think that we have a redshirt freshman and a redshirt sophomore competing for this job and they’re playing the way they are is very encouraging to me.” Bruns led the receivers with four catches for 102 yards and a touchdown. Johnson had six receptions for 52 yards and two scores. Tailback Johri Fogerson rushed for 72 yards on 12 carries.

Mariners: Win Continued from B1 Added Wedge, “You’ve got to make pitches at this level, especially against this lineup.” Seattle’s Milton Bradley had an RBI double before being ejected a few minutes later, and the Mariners’ bullpen pitched the final 3 1/3 innings. Seattle’s pen has held opponents scoreless for the last 13 1/3 innings. It was the Mariners’ fifth straight win. “Everybody is real confident,” Seattle catcher Miguel Olivo said. “Right now I don’t see anybody afraid to throw the ball.” Boston lost for the fourth time in five games after winning eight of nine. The Red Sox went hitless the final five innings — two against the bullpen — in Friday’s 5-4 loss. Boston left 11 runners on Saturday and was 0-for11 with runners in scoring position. “If you’re feeling pressure you’re not going to do the job,” Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said. “Everybody’s got that little thing they go to.
“I’ve got the little thing I go to. We’ve all got to find that little thing.” Fister (2-3) allowed five hits, walked five and fanned four. Aaron Laffey pitched 2 1-3 of one-hit relief and Brandon League got the final three outs for his seventh save in seven attempts. Bradley’s double gave the Mariners a 1-0 lead in the second, halting a 15 1-3 inning scoreless stretch by John Lackey (2-3). Ichiro walked and Chone Figgins singled before Bradley doubled just inside the left-field line. “The first one I had one that hit right on the line,” Lackey said. Bradley, standing at second following his double, was ejected by second base umpire Gerry Davis after Olivo was out on a close grounder at first. Wedge had just gone back to the dugout after arguing the play with Tim Tichenor, but was not tossed. “I guess when I was coming off the field they got him,” Wedge said. Jack Wilson’s sacrifice fly made it 2-0 in the sixth.

PA, Sequim settle for split Doubleheader features several tight matches Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — A full afternoon of girls tennis ended up in a split for archrivals Port Angeles and Sequim on Friday. The Wolves and Roughriders each won a match in their Olympic League doubleheader, with the former winning the first match 4-3 and the latter taking the second 5-2 Due to the length of the matches being played in the first set, the second match was an abbreviated format, playing one pro set instead of the traditional best 2 out of 3 sets to determine the winner. “In all of my years coaching at Port Angeles High School, I’ve never been involved in such a close match,” said coach Brian Gundersen. “We enjoy playing against Sequim every year because their girls play the right way, are wellcoached, and the matches are always so competitive.” Rider seniors Alexis Corn and Laney Boyd won both doubles matches of the doubleheader, getting special praise from Gundersen. “Alexis and Laney are our only seniors and they are playing their best tennis of the year right now,” he said. Serena Okamoto had two victories for Sequim as well, first winning the No. 1 singles showdown in the first match, then teaming up with Anna Prorok to win the No. 2 doubles in the second match. Prorok also earned a singles victory in the first match, winning the No. 2 matchup. The Riders travel to Kingston on Wednesday while Sequim travels to Port Townsend.
Thanks to the win, as well as two North Mason losses this weekend, Port Angeles can clinch a spot in the Class 2A sub-district playoffs with a victory over Sequim at Volunteer Field on Monday. A loss would likely put the Riders (8-7 in league and overall) in a sub-district pigtail playoff with North Mason.

Track and Field Shelton Invite SHELTON — Port Ange-
les’ Troy Martin and Port Townsend’s Bereket Piatt led the North Olympic Peninsula contingent at the 37-team Shelton Invitational on Saturday. While the Rider senior took home first place in the discus and 11th in the shot put, Piatt won the 3,200meter race and took fourth in the 1,600. Port Townsend teammate Habtamu Rubio finished third in the 1,600 ahead of Piatt. Sequim earned two medals and a ribbon at Saturday’s event. Taylor Bonneau finished first in the freshman and sophomore 100-meter dash with a personal best time of 11.26 seconds. Audrey Lichten posted a season-best time of 11:40.39 in the 3,200 meter to place fifth. Teammate Frank Catelli had a great showing posting personal bests in the shot put, discus and javelin to take fourth, eighth and tenth respectively.
Softball: Sequim continues to romp Continued from B1 That’s when the Spartans scored five of their six runs to turn a four-run deficit into a 6-5 lead. Whitney Fairbanks was 2-for-4 with two RBIs, while Alyssa Feldewert and Alissa Shaw both had two hits and scored two runs to lead the Spartan lineup. Courtnie Paul was also 3-for-4 in the Game 1 win. Elma countered with its ace, Brook Goldsmith, in the final game, and the freshman delivered a nine-strikeout, complete-game performance. Fairbanks drove in the Spartans’ lone run. She and fellow senior Taylor Morris were both honored during the doubleheader in a special ceremony. “The program is really going to miss them not just as good athletes but as great people,” Justus said. “They are both special in different ways. They’re both good softball players too.” The duo will get one more set of home games with a rescheduled doubleheader against Tenino set for Thursday.

Hawks load up on beef Seattle addresses O-line with first 2 picks of draft By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
RENTON — No question, new Seattle assistant head coach Tom Cable had an impact on the Seahawks’ draft approach. It was all about the offensive line during the first two days of the draft. After trading out of the second round to acquire more picks, the Seahawks grabbed Wisconsin guard John Moffitt with the 75th overall pick in the third round of the NFL draft on Friday night. The selection of Moffitt came on the heels of Seattle grabbing Alabama offensive tackle James Carpenter and after Seattle took Russell Okung in last year’s draft with the sixth overall pick. Throw in the return of Max Unger after he missed all but one game last season following toe surgery, and Seattle could be looking at an offensive line in 2011 with four starters who are either rookies or have just one season of NFL experience. “The intentions were clear what we wanted to get done these first couple of days and we’re very happy with how it turned out,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “To get another guy who brings the attitude and toughness and competitiveness that we talked about on day one is really clear.” The revamp of Seattle’s offensive line is needed after
the Seahawks ranked 31st in the NFL in rushing offense and the line was a constant juggle due to injuries and ineffectiveness. The arrival of Marshawn Lynch midway through the season didn’t yield the results the Seahawks had hoped because of the offensive line woes. Enter Cable, who was hired shortly after his firing as head coach in Oakland, with the intent of committing to a zone-blocking run offense based around brutish linemen. Cable told general manager John Schneider a week ago his preference on linemen — based on Seattle’s spots in the draft — were Carpenter and Moffitt. “The Seattle Seahawks, as we all know if you look back just a few years ago, had a tremendous offensive line, was a real strength, backbone of this football team,” Cable said. “It was the reason they went to all those playoff games and ultimately the Super Bowl. If you’re going to be that kind of team, you have to get back to that.”
Badger blocker Moffitt was a first-team Associated Press all-America selection in his senior season at Wisconsin. The 6-foot-4, 319-pound guard made 42 career starts for the Badgers, spending most of his time at left guard, but he also played center.
SEATTLE — Brad Evans scored twice in the second half and set up Alvaro Fernandez’s first-half goal in the Seattle Sounders’ 3-0 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night. Seattle won consecutive games for the first time this season and is 3-0-3 in its last six games and 3-2-3 overall. Toronto (1-3-4) is winless in six games, going 0-2-4 since a 2-0 home win over Portland on March 26. Goalkeeper Kasey Keller had his second straight shutout. “I thought for the team overall, this was just a good push going forward,” said Evans, whose multiple-goal game was the first of his career. “We played players in different formations and different positions as well, so I think everybody had a good attitude from that standpoint.” Evans was one of those players, moving to the right side, and with spectacular results. “Brad has played on the right before, and he’s comfortable out there,” Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said. “He has a good cross with the ball, as he showed on the first goal, then obviously, he finished his goal. He was unlucky not to get a couple more.” Fernandez, who started for the first time since March 19, scored his second goal of the season.
floated it across the penalty area. Fernandez headed it into the right corner. On a quick counterattack in the 52nd minute, Evans took a through ball from Fredy Montero down the right side, took it just inside the box and sent a shot off of goalkeeper Stefan Frei’s hands into the left corner. “I thought we were a little unfortunate to only be ahead by one at halftime,” Schmid said. “We said the first 15 or 20 minutes of the second half would be important. We got that second goal early in the second half, so that helped us establish our rhythm. Evans converted a penalty kick on a handball call in the 75th minute, giving him three goals this season. The match was Seattle’s first since starting midfielder Steve Zakuani’s right leg was broken on a hard tackle by Colorado’s Brad Mullan on April 22. Zakuani is likely out for the season, and Mullan received a 10-game suspension Thursday. The Sounders also were without forward O’Brian White, who had surgery on his left leg Wednesday to remove a blood clot, and is out indefinitely. White and Zakuani had accounted for four of Seattle’s previous seven goals. “We talked about before the game of kind of doing it for them, so I think that was in the back of everybody’s mind,” Evans said.

The Seahawks closed out the day by drafting defensive lineman Lazarius “Pep” Levingston from LSU and Southern California outside linebacker Malcolm Smith, both in the seventh round. The only offensive player Saturday drafted was 6-foot-5 Georgia wide receiver Kris Durham in the fourth round, a stark turn from the first two days when Seattle focused on the offensive line and took Alabama’s James Carpenter and Wisconsin’s John Moffitt. About the only lingering position Seattle didn’t address — and most expected them to — was quarterback. Charlie Whitehurst is the only QB under contract. “Overall, I think we were able to really improve the athleticism and speed of our team and then we were able to do some things up front from a strength and toughness standpoint,” Seattle general manager John Schneider said.
He played in all 47 games during his career for the Bulldogs, starting 35. He finished his career at Mississippi State with 259 total tackles and nine sacks. At nearly 6-foot-4 and almost 250 pounds, Wright could be a hybrid player in the Seahawks defense, potentially used as an outside linebacker or a passrushing defensive end. He’s in the mold of defensive ends Chris Clemons, who had 11 sacks last season, and Dexter Davis, who was taken in the seventh round a year ago. Wright just wished he could have celebrated the way he wanted, or the way the Seahawks expected. “My mind was going everywhere. I had to whisper, because I really couldn’t talk to them in line, I couldn’t say everything I wanted to,” Wright said. “It was a little different.” It was Carroll who finally found out what was going on after first talking with Schneider. “I just thought he was being pretty quiet,” Schneider said. Sherman nearly became one of Carroll’s players at USC, being recruited by Carroll out of Dominguez High in Compton, Calif.

Seven community heroes honored with awards, stories — even music By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Seven community members who have done outstanding deeds of public service were recognized last week with the 2011 Clallam County Community Service Award. About 125 friends, family members, associates and admirers packed into the meeting room at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for the 90-minute award ceremony Thursday night honoring W. Ron Allen, Jaye Moore, Dewey Ehling, Colleen and Ray Divacky, Alan Barnard and Stephen Rosales. The annual award, now in its 31st year, is co-sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News and Soroptimist International of Port Angeles (noon club). Throughout the night, the audience was moved to both laughter — and even to song. As Ehling received his framed award certificate, a “flash mob” of singers Ehling has directed surprised him and audience members by bursting into the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah.” “[The Soroptimist International] have had the privilege to co-sponsor this event and honor these amazing people who are passionate about their causes,” said Cherie Kidd, a Port Angeles City Council member and the event’s co-host for the Soroptimists. Later she added: “This is an amazing service for our community to give a special view of some very special people.”
Awards criteria Criteria for the Community Service Award includes longevity of service, number of people affected, time commitment and making a lasting contribution to the quality of life in Clallam County communities. “These are seven people whose unselfish efforts have made Clallam County a much better place,” said John Brewer, publisher and editor of the Peninsula Daily News. The seven merit both honor and imitation, he said. “They are role models for all of us, not only because they’ve aspired and dreamed, but because our local heroes’ achievements are within our own reach,” he said. “They show us that all of us can build community, that all of us can be part of something greater than ourselves. “It won’t make you wealthy. It will enrich your life and lives of those you serve. “It will fulfill you and

And it will make our small corner of the world a better place.” Here are summaries of the recipients in the order they appeared at Thursday night’s event:
Dewey Ehling Known as the county’s “Music Man,” Ehling went on stage for the first time at the age of 3 nearly 80 years ago and intends to keep performing as a conductor and musical director for as long as he can — or, he joked, until someone tells him to stop. Nominated by Paul Martin, co-author of a popular history book about Port Angeles, and presented by Phyllis Darling, for-
mer executive director of the Olympic Peninsula Red Cross, Ehling has bettered the community through his participation with Olympic Theatre Arts, the Port Angeles Symphony, the Peninsula Singers, the Port Angeles Light Opera Association, Readers Theatre Plus, Sequim Community Aid and other groups. “For [many] long years, this good and unselfish man has given virtually all of his time and considerable talents and has entertained and motivated us in ways that we may never be able to measure,” Darling said. “He defines himself in relationship to the people who he cherishes so much and who cherish him right back.” Before allowing Ehling to

respond, the more than twodozen singers suddenly stood up at their tables and burst into Handel’s “Messiah.” “Congratulations has been defined in many ways, and the best way has been told to me at the end of rehearsal every week by a psychologist who passes by me,” Ehling said afterward. “He passes by me and says, ‘Thanks for the therapy.’ “And that is the best way I could have defined music.” Ehling began his music work on the North Olympic Peninsula when he was asked to direct PALOA’s production of “The Pirates of Penzance” some 39 years ago. “After that, I assured them I would do anything I was capable of doing,” he said.

She said she was a tomboy who was bored and had little else to do. “I was always dragging in some poor bedraggled creature, and my parents put up with it — and it just got worse as I got older and, well, here I am today,” she said.

Stephen Rosales Rosales said he is a “volaholic” — which, he explained, is a “volunteer-aholic.” Rosales spends more than double the time of a full-time job volunteering each week. Joe Borden, known as “Mr. Sequim Irrigation Festival” and a 2010 recipient of the Community Service Award, presented Rosales to the audience. Borden said Rosales works about 60 hours a
week as a volunteer at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula and about the same amount of time at the Sequim Food Bank, where he is the interim director. He also works with the Sequim School District and local Little League teams. “I am retired military, and I spent a lot of years knowing that it was duty, honor and country,” Borden said. “Well, Stephen knows that it is duty, honor and community.” Rosales said he was touched but that he felt the real community heroes were the men and women in law enforcement and the military. He also challenged all those in the room to put education and children first. “I don’t like to use the word ‘hero’ because the real heroes are people like Sheriff Benedict, who puts his life on the line every day —
that is a hero right there,” he said, gesturing toward Benedict. “I also want to say there is no future for this country without education. “We have to turn to support the school districts.” Rosales was nominated by his father-in-law, Bryce Fish of Sequim, a 2006 recipient of the Community Service Award, with endorsement letters from Jim Pickett, a 2007 recipient of the award, and Tom Schaafsma, who received the award in 2009.
W. Ron Allen
presented to the audience by Mike Gentry, a Port Angeles-based architect, Allen was hailed for devoting a lifetime to improving the community — creating businesses and jobs, contributing tens of thousands of dollars annually to support innumerable county groups and charities, and promoting the heritage of the Klallam people. “Many movements in the world are defined by technology or spiritual need or a vacuum that needs to be filled by just the right person,” said Gentry. “I believe that Ron Allen is one of those great men that we can trust and depend on to lead us on the right path.” Allen said he hopes to help the larger community of Clallam County look forward during the tough economic times. “This is not a timberdriven community anymore, so we have to think about what else can we do to employ lots of young families and create jobs,” he said. “When we started, we had nothing, and now we have an annual budget of $26 million. “We are able to help make a difference in the community.”
When Ron Allen of Sequim began his job as chairman of the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe 34 years ago, there were zero dollars in the tribe’s bank account. With the support of the tribal elders and the Tribal Council, Allen built the Jamestown tribe into an industry — with the 7 Cedars resort and casino, The Longhouse Market and Deli, Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course, Jamestown Family Health Clinic and businesses that include Jamestown Excavating, Jamestown HomeBuilding and JKT Construction, an annual budget of $26 million and more than 700 jobs.

Hear squeaks, squawks, songs online THE SOUND OVERHEAD was a familiar one: “Gronk, gronk!” That’s how I describe a raven’s call, but that is only one of the sounds they make. Being able to recognize birds by their voices can alert you to their presence even when you don’t see them. The calling ravens turned out to be two mated pairs who were having a heated discussion over who was in whose territory. Both pairs dipped and dove while making passes at one another. They called, scolded and engaged in intricate aerial maneuvers, but the challenging didn’t last very long. When it ended, the victorious pair landed in a nearby tree and “had the last word” loud and long. How do you learn the different songs and calls birds make? It takes time and a lot of looking and listening. However, it doesn’t take as long as it once did. It’s possible to do some Web research that will speed up this learning experience. A reader, frustrated with identifying what she assumed was a calling owl, brought this up. She started doing some research in her field guides, but that only took her part of the way. Searching for bird calls on the Web helped her discover that the

accuses me of being â€œselfishâ€? for not appreciating it. A parenting book was delivered anonymously to our home. It took me a few days to remember that Marla had mentioned it. Five days later, she sent me an angry email because I hadnâ€™t thanked her for it. Spats like this usually result in our not speaking for months. I harbor no ill will toward my sister and
often donâ€™t know why weâ€™re fighting. She seems to thrive on the drama she creates with these artificial rifts. I want my daughter exposed to healthy adult relationships, not abusive ones. How do I tell my twin I love her but that she must stop trying to control me and create conflict where none exists? I donâ€™t want to have to cut her out of my life. Soon-to-be-Dad Dear Soon-to-be-Dad: The patterns of a lifetime wonâ€™t change without work on both your parts. Tell your twin that if she wants to be a part of your life â€” and your

My advice is to take it day by day, and youâ€™ll have your answer.

May Day rooted in growing around globe HURRAY, HURRAY! THE first of May . . . My international holiday begins and ends today. That’s right, in my household, the May family, May Day is our absolute favorite holiday of the year. Better than the candy of Halloween, the barbecues of Memorial Weekend and the harmless pranks of April 1. For me, my own international recognition day is pretty hard to beat. There is no Smith or Jones Day, no Gregoire or Obama Day. Even George Washington has to share his day with all the rest of the presidents. I just love May Day. And does a name influence what’s around or associated with it? Do April showers really bring May flowers? The origins of May Day are deeply rooted — well before the working-class unions and communism co-oped the celebration of planting and spring May 1, 1886, declaring eight hours the legal working day. May Day well precedes the European churches of the Middle Ages, which conspired to outlaw
A GROWING CONCERN the raucous pagan celebraMay tion of fertility, planting and the return of the sun. The druids of the British Isles held May Day as their second-mostheralded holiday, calling it Beltane to honor the day of fire. (Bel was the Celtic god of the sun, and May 1 splits the year into two equal halves.) May 1 until Nov. 1 was planting and harvest time, the ground fertile, and animals bred and plants flourished while the other six months were cold, brutal, dormant and fallow, agriculture on hold throughout much of Europe. Pre-Christian Rome celebrated April 27 to May 3 as the festival of Flora. Floralia, as this five-day holiday was known, honored the Roman goddess of flowers and vegetation. The Saxons partied hard May
1 as well, beginning the night of April 30 by playing games, torching wheels of fire and feasting, all in honor of the end of winter, the beginning of soil fertility and the return of the sun. So from its beginning, the name May was fused with flowers, planting, fertility and crops. But as human history progressed, so did May Day as flowers grew in symbolic significance. Roman influence in Europe dominated, and Floralia and Beltane cross-pollinated into various rituals of trees, maypoles, flowers, fertility and mating. In France, King Charles the IX gave each lady of the court a sprig of the aromatic lily of the valley each May 1, and today, the ritual of giving lily of the valley to a lady persists, though a kiss is traditional to give in return. In Cornwall, England, the flower boat ritual happens every May Day as a model of the ship The Black Prince, covered in flowers, is paraded from Quay at Millbrook and cast adrift at the Cawsand beach after passing through villages adorned in floral decorations. In the Rhineland region of Germany, young men deliver a tree covered in streamers to the
lady of their interest the night before, while young ladies place roses or rice in the form of a heart at the house of their beloved one. Even in America, early settlers erected maypoles and danced around them. In Sequim, numerous maypoles were erected May 1 in anticipation of the Irrigation Festival, scheduled May 6-15. Many other American pioneers and settlers gave May baskets filled with flowers and treats, hoping to be caught by the person receiving them in exchange for a kiss. My father, Thomas May, was a gardener when he married my mother, and both received their floriculture (i.e. greenhousing) degrees from Cornell University. They then set forth, worked at a huge greenhouse and had me, another little May. Later, they bought a cornfield and erected from the ground up the Mayflower Greenhouse, known for its beautiful flowers. This article ends with the tagline “dreams of having Clallam and Jefferson counties nationally recognized as Flower Peninsula USA.” Why?
Because even this year, as more and more people joke about when, if ever, spring will arrive, we on the Peninsula will celebrate the festivals of Floralia and Beltane all year long. May Day is omnipresent here, with flora green all calendar long. We are the Evergreen State by the banana belt in or next to the Blue Hole, and even the West End has the Enchanted Valley up the Quinault river basin. So perhaps my surname has nothing to do with my family, but your family has everything to do with how great we can grow things on the Peninsula. Celebrate May Day — and each day — by growing in your yard because many people, for a very long time, celebrated heartily for a climate we so abundantly have. But don’t be discouraged if they do not name a day after you for the effort.

MARY ELIZABETH KEATING (BETSY MOAK) April 7, 1966 March 30, 2011 Mary Elisabeth (Betsy) Keating was born on April 7, 1966, in Redwood City, California, to Hugh Bernard Keating and Jean Bruce Keating. Betsy lost her 31⁄2-year battle with cancer on March 30, 2011, in Vancouver, Washington. Betsy moved with her family to Sequim in 1971, when she was 5 years old. During her time in Sequim, she adopted her stepfather’s last name of Moak. She graduated from Sequim High School in 1984. She became involved with the annual operetta productions in the eighth grade and remained involved through high school. She also was a member of the band, crosscountry and managed the girls basketball team.
Betsy joined 4-H at the age of 9 and qualified for the state fair in many of her projects. Her favorites were dogs and horses. She became a Western Games rider and enjoyed riding with private groups as well as 4-H. Betsy also served as Worthy Adviser of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls and was a grand (state) officer in that organization as well. Following high school, Betsy attended Western Washington University, majoring in chemistry and mathematics. She owned her own company, Stirling Media, with which she traveled extensively. She also owned Arlequin Kennels and bred, trained and exhibited Belgian Tervurens. She trained several champions and was fortunate enough to travel over most of the U.S. as well as visiting Europe several times, with (and sometimes without) her dogs. Betsy is survived by her mother, Jean Keating,
and grandmother, Jean Bruce, both of Des Moines, Washington; brother Greg Moak, his wife, Barbara (Kosse) Moak, and their sons, Cameron and Brandon, all of Federal Way, Washington; and brother Stephen Moak, his fiancee, Debbie Reynolds, and his sons Brian and David, all of Sequim. She is also survived by her fiance, Jeremy Meeks of Keizer, Oregon, his family, her “soul dog” Emma, aunts, uncles and many cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Hugh, who passed away on April 9, 1966, and her grandfather, Ellwood Bruce, who retired to Sequim and was a past master of the Sequim Masonic Lodge and an avid golfer. No services are planned at this time. Betsy would have appreciated donations to American Belgian Tervuren Club Rescue, www.belgian tervurenrescue.com, or any cancer research organization.
Death and Memorial Notice HONEY DAVIS January 20, 1915 April 8, 2011 Honey Davis passed away at age 96 in her home, attended by loving family and friends. Honey was born into the large family of Rose and Benjamin Katz in Brooklyn, New York. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lou; son Ben; sisters Lillian and Esther; and brothers Samuel, Arnold, Nathan, Ruben, Morris and Julius. A week before her passing, she was visited by her only surviving sibling and his wonderful companion, Sally, both from Brooklyn. Their visit meant a great deal to Honey, and she treasured their time together. Honey is survived by her daughter, Marilyn

Mrs. Davis Davis, and her husband, Jerry Morris; granddaughters Lou Ellen Davis of Salem, Oregon, and Terri Davis; and great-granddaughter Karlyn of Chester, California. Honey was loved and cherished by a large extended family of nieces and nephews, both grand
and great, from all over the country and by many friends here in Port Angeles, where she lived for nearly 30 years. Special friends Bonnie, Sandy and Patty cared for Honey around the clock after she broke her hip shortly after her 94th birthday, and Honey referred to them as her “angels.” Honey spoke often of Sequim Health & Rehabilitation and the superior care she was given during her time there; in just a few months, she went from wheelchair to a walker to a cane to walking unattended. They ensured that Honey would spend another two years with us all, for which we are so very grateful. She truly appreciated the care she received from Dr. Larry Gordon and his entire staff, as well as the nurses and aids at Olympic Medical Center.
Bonnie also helped care for Honey during the last weeks of her life. Thanks to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County for its compassion and support. Honey will be remembered with love. We will always feel honored and elevated to have had her in our lives. We will remember her courage during the worst of times and her solid, basic goodness all the time. She will never stop being a role model. She was a fountain of love and warmth, and we have all been profoundly affected by her loving nature. A celebration of her life is being planned. A donation in her honor may be made to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 East Eighth Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

$ Briefly . . . PA chamber gets review of Hurricane Ridge PORT ANGELES — A report on all-week access to Hurricane Ridge during the winter will be given by Olympic National Park Deputy Superintendent Todd Suess to the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce on Monday. Suess, former superintendent of Jewel Cave National Monument in South Dakota who became ONP deputy superintendent in FebSuess ruary, will substitute for Superintendent Karen Gustin, who was originally scheduled to speak but will be out of town. Since December, the southbound road out of Port Angeles to Hurricane Ridge has been open every day, weather permitting, paid for by about $75,000 in North Olympic Peninsula donations and an additional $250,000 in federal funds. For years, the road to the ski and snow-play area was open only Fridays through Sundays during the winter months. Open to the public, Monday’s chamber luncheon — which also will feature announcement of the monthly community Beautification Award — begins at noon and returns to the Port Angeles CrabHouse Restaurant’s upstairs banquet room at the Red Lion Hotel, 221 N. Lincoln St. Luncheon tickets are $13 and can be purchased from the meeting room cashier.
Biomass project PORT TOWNSEND — A progress report on the proposed Port Townsend Paper Corp. cogeneration project will be part of a Team Jefferson economic report at this week’s Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon meeting on Monday.

Midwife joins clinic PORT ANGELES — Jennifer “Jenn” Brown recently joined Olympic Medical Physicians Women’s Clinic. Brown, ARNP, CNM, will provide midwifery care and offer a full range of maternity and gynecological care. She joins Brown three other practicing certified nurse midwives and nurse practitioners at the clinic, 930 Caroline St. “We feel her experience with high-risk labor and delivery patients will really enhance the care we provide our patients at the Women’s Clinic,” said Kitty LaBarge, OMP director of surgical services. Brown previously worked for the University of Texas Medical Branch School of Medicine in Galveston, Texas, as a maternal child specialist. “I became passionate about midwifery and women’s health after my own experience with a midwife,” said Brown. “It is my goal to provide the best care possible to the women in our community.

PORT LUDLOW — In a small, quiet workshop on three acres of rural land, bookbinder David Myhre carefully wrapped an Ace bandage around an old, worn Bible. The Bible was centuries old, its ornate leather cover rotted in places, its spine barely held together when it arrived at Myhre’s doorstep. Over several days, he carefully scraped old glue off the underside of the old leather with a dull X-acto knife, pared sheets of new leather to replace the old, and glued the restored original spine cover on top. “When you get injured, what do you do?” asked Myhre, who put the bandage on to make sure pressure is evenly distributed as the new glue dries. “You put an Ace bandage on it. Well, this book is sort of injured. It needs a new spine.” In this painstaking, meticulous way, Myhre, 61, gives new lives to old Bibles that often have great personal meaning for their owners.

ated a niche restoring old Bibles — about 150 of them last year. For Myhre, it’s been a spot of economic brightness in a trade that’s seen demand plummet as books and other publications increasingly go digital. Though, by many accounts, the market is small, “People still want to preserve old family Bibles or Bibles they were given,” said David Bundy, associate provost for library services at Fuller Theological Seminary. At the workshop next to his home, Bibles and books to be restored are stacked on tables. Sheets of decorative paper and thin leather line pullout shelves, and large pieces of machinery — some manufactured between the Civil War and World War I — stand tall. Despite his passion for the craft, Myhre didn’t set out to get into the book — or Bible — restoration business. He didn’t even particularly like to read as a kid. But shop classes? Those he liked.

New rage: Princess’ royal gown By Anne D’innocenzio The Associated Press
The Associated Press
Vanessa Kelterborn, a store manager at ABS Clothing Collection Inc. in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday arranges a knockoff design of the royal wedding gown worn by Kate Middleton. (To see the real thing, see the official royal portrait of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Page D8.)
NEW YORK — Fashion firms want a piece of the fairy tale. Seconds after Kate Middleton emerged from her car outside Westminster Abbey in a ball gown with lace sleeves, designers around the country, glued to their TV sets, were sketching her look, setting in motion a mad rush for mass-produced versions that are expected to be in stores as early as late June. For brides-to-be who can’t wait even four weeks, David’s Bridal, the nation’s largest bridal chain, was already trumpeting a strapless look from Oleg Cassini, paired with a lacey bolero jacket, on its website as an already available stand-in as it scrambled to push out modified knockoffs of the real thing to stores by September. Meanwhile, QVC said shoppers will be able to pre-order earrings inspired by the diamond drops worn by the princess as early as Monday night. Turn

Work on big oil tank nears finish CONTRACTORS ARE FINISHING up a project at the Tesoro Petroleum tank farm on Port Angeles’ Ediz Hook that began last fall and was postponed later in the season thanks to Mother Nature. It all began when a routine inspection revealed potential problem areas in Tesoro’s largest storage tank, used to store fuel for the ships that visit Port Angeles Harbor. Inspections and repairs had been completed, and all that remained to be done was to sandblast, pressure wash and paint the tank when the high winds of last November ground all work to a halt. When the oil storage tank was assembled in 1985, the pre-rolled sheets of steel used to form the tank arrived on site with a coat of primer — except along the edges where the sheets would be welded together. It is those areas where no primer was used that required the most attention. A windscreen now enshrouds the 85,000-barrel tank and the scaffolding surrounding it, and the time consuming job of painting a structure that encompasses more than an acre of surface area is well under way. Once painting is completed, the insulation and outer protective skin will be reattached, and the 3.5-million-gallon tank will be placed back into service.
Border protection The North Olympic Sail and Power Squadron will hold its monthly meeting May 9 in the banquet room at the Cedars at Dungeness, 1965 Woodcock Road, northwest of Sequim. Anyone interested in boating is invited to attend. The guest speaker this month is Jonathan Michienze of the Office of Air and Marine, a division of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Jonathan will explain how the OAM uses airborne and maritime assets to detect, interdict and prevent acts of terrorism, and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs and other contraband into the United States. He also is expected to touch on the contribution boaters can make to this effort by reporting suspicious activity. Dinner will be served at 6

The Port Angeles Yacht Club held a predicted log race in the waters of southern Vancouver Island on April 23. The concept of the event is similar to a road rally with autos. The course was 19 miles long with a number of fixed waypoints — and the only navigational instrument used was a compass. Participants must use a “fixed throttle” for the event. Prior to starting the contest, each boat traverses a measured mile to determine its throttle setting for the duration of the competition. Any deviation from this setting means an immediate disqualification for the transgressor. Although the starting time for the event was flexible, all participants must cross the finish no earlier than noon and no later than 12:15 p.m. This year’s course started at the Dock Island Light near Sidney, B.C., and ran down Cordova Channel to the finish line, which was just off the Lewis Reef Light that sits between Discovery Island and the city of Victoria. According to last year’s winner and this year’s commodore of the club, Steve DeBiddle, the currents this year created challenges for the participants that they had not dealt with in years past.
The 3.5-million-gallon main storage tank at Tesoro Petroleum’s tank yard on Ediz Hook in Port Angeles Harbor is covered, top, as work is completed to paint the huge structure.

FAA shakes up air-traffic control bosses The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Federal Aviation Administration on Friday replaced three high-level managers in the nation’s air traffic control system following embarrassing incidents of controllers sleeping on the job and making potentially dangerous mistakes. In a shake-up of the system, new managers were appointed to key positions that oversee the operation of airport towers and regional radar centers that handle planes flying at high altitudes as well as approaches and departures, the agency said in a statement. A new manager was also appointed to run a regional radar center near Cleveland. The previ-
ous managers are being reassigned. The performance of mid-level managers is also being reassessed, the FAA said. And teams of experts are examining several of the agency’s more complex facilities, including the Cleveland center and one on Long Island in New York, to ensure agency policies are being followed and professional standards upheld. “This sends a powerful message, and it’s the right message,” said Gregory McGuirk, an associate professor of air traffic management at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla. “It’s one way to shake up the culture.” But Missy Cummings, an asso-
ciate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said shuffling managers doesn’t get at the root cause of many of the incidents. The limits of human physiology necessarily mean that night shift workers in all industries, not just controllers, are going to fall asleep on the job from time to time, said Cummings, a human factors expert. Boredom is also a factor. The less activity there is to keep workers’ minds engaged in the dead of night, the more likely they are to fall asleep, she said. Last month, a controller working an overnight shift at the Cleveland center was suspended for watching a DVD movie while he was supposed to be directing

FAA regulations require a separation of at least five miles when the plane in the lead is significantly larger to prevent the trailing plane from encountering dangerous wake turbulence. Controllers at Andrews also directed Obama’s plane to abandon its landing and circle the air base to give the cargo jet time to get off the runway. Also Friday, FAA named a fivemember review panel composed of internal, labor, industry and academic safety experts to evaluate the agency’s training of new controllers. “This is just the beginning of the process to make sure we have the best possible team in place,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said.

air traffic. In February, a supervisor at the Long Island center complained that controllers on late night shifts routinely took naps during breaks and played electronic games when traffic was light. On Wednesday, FAA replaced the acting manager of a regional radar facility in Warrenton, Va., that handles approaches and departures for airports in Virginia and Maryland. The action came a week after a controller at the facility allowed a plane carrying first lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, to fly less than three miles behind a much larger military cargo jet as the planes approached Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

Court voids stem cell research ban 1996 law involves tax funding The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Opponents of taxpayerfunded stem cell research has lost a key round in a federal appeals court. In a 2-1 decision Friday, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in District of Columbia overturned a judge’s order that would have blocked taxpayer funding for stem cell research. The judges ruled that opponents of taxpayerfunded stem cell research are not likely to succeed in their lawsuit to stop it. The panel reversed an opinion issued last August by U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, who said the research likely violates the
law against federal funding of embryo destruction. “We’re thrilled with this decision and look forward to allowing federally funded scientists to continue with their work without political constraints,” said Sean Tipton, a spokesman for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Researchers hope one day to use stem cells in ways that cure spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease and other ailments.
Linked to abortion Opponents say the research is a form of abortion because human embryos must be destroyed to obtain the stem cells. The 1996 law prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars in work that harms an embryo, so private money has been used to cull batches of the cells. Those batches can reproduce in lab dishes indefinitely, and the Obama
administration issued rules permitting taxpayer dollars to be used in work on them. The lawsuit was filed by two scientists who argued that Obama’s expansion jeopardized their ability to win government funding for research using adult stem cells — ones that have already matured to create specific types of tissues — because it will mean extra competition. Lamberth, the chief judge of the U.S. District Court in Washington, issued a preliminary injunction in August to block the research while the case continued. The Obama administration immediately appealed and requested the order be stopped. The appeals court quickly ruled that the research could continue at the National Institutes of Health while the judges took up the case. As a result of the appellate ruling Friday, the original lawsuit can continue

Lamberth hasn’t thus far either held a trial or issued a final ruling, which he could do based on court filings without taking testimony. Once the cells are culled, they can reproduce in lab dishes indefinitely.
So government policies said using taxpayer dollars to work with the alreadycreated batches of cells is allowed. The Obama administration has expanded the number of stem cell lines created with private money that federally funded scientists could research, up from the 21 that President
George W. Bush had allowed to at least 75 so far. To qualify, parents who donate the original embryo must be told of other options, such as donating to another infertile woman. Congress twice passed legislation specifically calling for tax-funded stem cell research, which Bush vetoed.

Myhre got into an apprenticeship program at a trade bindery and eventually launched his own business, binding everything from issues of Seattle Weekly to legal documents, cookbooks and self-published books. Business was good enough to support a growing family: his wife, Jani Myhre, and their three children.

Over the years, she used it so much — nearly every day — that it began to fall apart. Myhre resewed the loose pages, replaced the leather cover and put in two ribbon markers, allowing Eleanor to once again read passages from it every morning, refer to it during Bible study on Wednesdays and again at church on Sundays.

But in the past decade, business dropped, as publications became increasingly digitized. Then the economy tanked. One area that didn’t: Bible restoration. Myhre started slowly, restoring just one or two a month over the years. But as people heard about his work, the niche started to grow and he took more classes on restoring old books. It’s unknown how many Bible restorers there are in the country. Most larger book binderies have a team that restores old books. And “there are little oneperson shops that do that all over the place,” said Mark Melahn, general manager of The HF GroupWashington, which Melahn said is the largest book bindery in the state. “But it’s not nearly what it used to be.” For Myhre, business ebbs and flows. He might get one Bible one month, 20 the next.
Often, he gets bigger ones — each larger than a couple of Yellow Pages stacked together. The big ones are often family Bibles that date back centuries. They became especially popular in the 19th century, possibly because technological advances made Bibles easier to print and railroads made distribution — previously done on horse-drawn carts or in boats — easier, said Paul Gutjahr, associate professor of English at Indiana University in Bloomington. Displaying the big Bibles in one’s home also became “a totem of refinement” among middle-class families, Gutjahr said. Aside from a few limited editions, the big ones don’t often have a high resale value. But they do have sentimental value. Typically, they have a section of family-history pages placed in them, where family members record births, weddings and deaths. People will “show me where their great-greatgrandfather signed it,” Myhre said. “Or sometimes someone will buy a Bible at a usedbook store and want me to remove the old records pages and put in new blank ones for their family.” Myhre restored several Bibles for a Silverdale couple — the Rev. Norman Nideng, 89, a retired Baptist pastor, and his wife, Eleanor Fischer Nideng, 80, a retired director of purchasing at a college.

Marines trained on accepting gay recruits By Elliot Spagat
The Associated Press
CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — Marine instructor Maj. Daryl Desimone stood before an auditorium filled with fatigue-clad troops, carrying an unequivocal message: It’s OK to disagree with letting gays serve openly in the military. It’s not OK to disobey orders. He explained that the impending repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” is an order, one heard by generals and rank-and-file alike as the military tries to change the culture of a traditionally conservative institution. Only a few of the roughly 150 Marines stepped up to ask questions. One stood up from a back row and demanded to know why his religious beliefs were being “put aside” in favor of gays, forcing him to “basically grit my teeth and bear it.” “It’s not really open to discussion,” Desimone said. “Nobody’s trying to change your mind.” Sexual orientation will now be a private matter, just like religion or politics,
he said. Sgt. Jay Milinichik of Tulsa, Okla., stood up to ask what would happen if a Marine refused gay roommates. Marines won’t have separate barracks or showers based on sexual orientation, Desimone said. He added that signing up for the Marines comes with an expectation of less privacy. That said, officers may decide to separate roommates to preserve peace, just like they do now when roommates argue. Marines will not be allowed an early discharge for opposing the policy but exceptions will be considered, Desimone said. “You can’t just walk up and say, ‘I don’t like this. I’m outa here,’” he said.
Worldwide classes Classes like Thursday’s for the Combat Logistics Regiment 17 of the 1st Marine Logistics Group are being held at military bases around the world. The Marines expect to finish training by June 1, with all military branches done by summer’s end.
The repeal of the 17-year “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy would go into effect 60 days after the president, defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff certify that lifting the ban won’t hurt the military’s ability to fight. Gen. James Amos, the Marine Corps commandant, testified last year that permitting gays to openly serve could disrupt smaller combat units and distract leaders from preparing for battle. When he appeared last month before the House Armed Services Committee, he said he had been looking for problems that might arise under the new policy and hadn’t found any “recalcitrant pushback.” “There has not been the anxiety over it from the forces in the field,” he said. In small group discussions, Marines are being asked to consider their reactions to a wide range of scenarios, from seeing a member “hanging around” a gay bar to hearing lockerroom jokes from others who refuse to shower in front of gays. There is nothing wrong
with “hanging around” a gay bar, the training materials state.
No harassment The officer who witnesses the loud locker-room banter aimed at gays and lesbians should remind the Marines any discrimination or harassment is inappropriate. If a Marine spots two men in his battalion kissing off-duty at a shopping mall, he should react as if he were seeing a man and woman, according to the training materials. If he turns on the television news to see a fellow Marine dressed as a civilian and marching in a parade with a banner that reads, “Support Gays and Lesbians in the Military!” he should accept it as a free right of expression. A top-notch Marine recruiter opposed to the new policy cannot refuse a promising applicant because of sexual orientation. The recruiter might be considered for another assignment or, at the Navy secretary’s discretion, might be granted early discharge.

U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Chris Lynch, left, listens to a training session at Camp Pendleton, Calif., to familiarize Marines with the military’s new position on gay and lesbian service members and the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Chaplains who preach at base chapels that homosexuality is a sin are entitled to express their beliefs during worship. At Thursday’s class at Camp Pendleton, there were several questions about benefits. Desimone said Marines must follow federal law that only recognizes marriage between a man and woman, disqualifying gays from housing allowances and
other benefits afforded to married couples. But he pondered a scenario in which a gay couple would be allowed to live in military base housing because they have children and the partner is a custodial parent. “There are inconsistencies,” he said. “Anyone who looks at it logically will see there are some things that need to be worked out.”
Utah sues U.S. government over wilderness plan By Matthew Daly
The Associated Press
SALT LAKE CITY — The state of Utah has filed a lawsuit against the federal government over an Obama administration plan to make millions of acres of undeveloped land in the West eligible for federal wilderness protection. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert called the plan a “midnight ambush.” He agreed that wilderness areas deserve protection but said the federal policy circumvents state
efforts to determine what areas should be deemed wilderness and whether it would harm Utah’s economy. Herbert, a Republican, said he hoped Alaska, Idaho and Wyoming would soon join the lawsuit. The three states also have Republican governors. A spokesman for the Wyoming attorney general’s office said the state is considering its options. Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter also planned to review the lawsuit.
“We will have further discussions about the concerns raised by the state of Utah. Clearly we have very similar concerns,” said Otter spokesman Jon Hanian. Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell said his state would “participate and support” the lawsuit. Herbert claims the new policy, announced Dec. 23, has no statutory authority and should be overturned. He insisted the order sets aside years of work by the state that would now

tion that would help the agency better manage public lands, waters and wildlife. But critics accuse him of a land-grab that would lock up millions of prime acres in the West. Nathan Newcomer, of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, called the lawsuit “a complete waste of time and money.” “We have a lot of other issues in this country and this petty back-and-forth stuff is ridiculous,” Newcomer said.
New York case underscores privacy dangers with Wi-Fi By Carolyn Thompson The Associated Press
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Lying on his family room floor with assault weapons trained on him, shouts of “pedophile!” and “pornographer!” stinging like his fresh cuts and bruises, the Buffalo homeowner didn’t need long to figure out the reason for the early morning wake-up call from a swarm of federal agents. That new wireless router. He’d gotten fed up trying to set a password. Someone must have used his Internet connection, he thought. “We know who you are! You downloaded thousands of images at 11:30 last night,” the man’s lawyer, Barry Covert, recounted the agents saying. They referred to a screen name, “Doldrum.” “No, I didn’t,” he insisted. “Somebody else could have but I didn’t do anything like that.”
“You’re a creep . . . just admit it,” they said. Law enforcement officials say the case is a cautionary tale. Their advice: Passwordprotect your wireless router.
Other cases Plenty of others would agree. The Sarasota, Fla. man, for example, who got a similar visit from the FBI last year after someone on a boat docked in a marina outside his building used a potato chip can as an antenna to boost his wireless signal and download an astounding 10 million images of child porn. Or the North Syracuse, N.Y., man who in December 2009 opened his door to police who’d been following an electronic trail of illegal videos and images. The man’s neighbor pleaded guilty April 12. For two hours that March morning in Buffalo, agents tapped away at the
homeowner’s desktop computer, eventually taking it with them, along with his and his wife’s iPads and iPhones. Within three days, investigators determined the homeowner had been telling the truth. If someone was downloading child pornography through his wireless signal, it wasn’t him. About a week later, agents arrested a 25-yearold neighbor and charged him with distribution of child pornography. The case is pending in federal court. It’s unknown how often unsecured routers have brought legal trouble for subscribers. Besides the criminal investigations, the Internet is full of anecdotal accounts of people who’ve had to fight accusations of illegally downloading music or movies. Whether you’re guilty or not, “you look like the suspect,” said Orin Kerr, a pro-
fessor at George Washington University Law School, who said that’s just one of many reasons to secure home routers. Experts say the more savvy hackers can go beyond just connecting to the Internet on the host’s dime and monitor Internet activity and steal passwords or other sensitive information.
Neighbors’ networks A study released in February provides a sense of how often computer users rely on the generosity — or technological shortcomings — of their neighbors to gain Internet access. The poll conducted for the Wi-Fi Alliance, the industry group that promotes wireless technology standards, found that among 1,054 Americans age 18 and older, 32 percent acknowledged trying to access a Wi-Fi network that wasn’t theirs. An estimated 201 million households worldwide use
Wi-Fi networks, according to the alliance. The same study, conducted by Wakefield Research, found that 40 percent said they would be more likely to trust someone with their house key than with their Wi-Fi network password. For some, though, leaving their wireless router open to outside use is a philosophical decision, a way of returning the favor for the times they’ve hopped on to someone else’s network to check email or download directions while away from home. “I think it’s convenient and polite to have an open Wi-Fi network,” said Rebecca Jeschke, whose home signal is accessible to anyone within range. “Public Wi-Fi is for the common good and I’m happy to participate in that — and lots of people are,” said Jeschke, a spokeswoman for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Fran-
cisco-based nonprofit that takes on cyberspace civil liberties issues. Experts say wireless routers come with encryption software, but setting it up means a trip to the manual. The government’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team recommends home users make their networks invisible to others by disabling the identifier broadcasting function that allows wireless access points to announce their presence. It also advises users to replace any default network names or passwords, since those are widely known, and to keep an eye on the manufacturer’s website for security patches or updates. People who keep an open wireless router won’t necessarily know when someone else is piggybacking on the signal, which usually reaches 300-400 feet, though a slower connection may be a clue.

Verizon’s new subscribers came at the expense of AT&T and Sprint Nextel Corp. But neither carrier saw signs of current customers moving to Verizon for the sake of the iPhone. Rather, it seems customers weighing between carriers were more likely to go to Verizon because of the iPhone. AT&T appeared to be splitting new iPhone customers evenly with Verizon Wireless. Sprint lost lucrative contract customers in the quarter, but continued its long turnaround by signing up a record number of people on cheaper, contract-free plans.

Buffett: Mistakes were made in handling Sokol Berkshire Hathaway holds shareholders meeting By Josh Funk
The Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. — Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting Saturday was dominated by somber topics, as Warren Buffett explained to roughly 40,000 shareholders how the company had been battered by a trusted former employee’s misdeeds and a string of natural disasters. Buffett assured the crowd at an Omaha convention center that Berkshire is s t r o n g enough to Sokol withstand both the David Sokol scandal and the estimated $1.7 billion in insurance losses that drove profits down 58 percent in the first quarter. Buffett said he doesn’t think he will ever understand why Sokol bought stock in Lubrizol shortly before recommending that Berkshire buy the chemical company. Buffett said he believes Sokol clearly violated Berkshire’s ethics and insider
uffett said all of Berkshire’s policies on ethics and insider trading will be reviewed to see if changes are needed, but he doesn’t think it makes sense to create a large compliance office to keep tabs on employees’ personal investments. trading policies. “It’s a situation that’s sad for Berkshire and sad for Dave,” Buffett said. Buffett acknowledged that he made a mistake by not asking Sokol more about his Lubrizol stock when they first discussed the company in January. Buffett said he had no reason to think Sokol had just bought the stock the week before. Buffett previewed Berkshire’s earnings at the annual meeting, ahead of their scheduled release Friday.
Earthquake impact He said the biggest factor in the earnings drop was roughly $1.7 billion in pretax losses related to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, Australian floods and the New Zealand earthquake.
Puget area ranks 18th in nation on pollution scale The Associated Press
SEATTLE — The Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia metro area is the 18th most-polluted in the country for fine particle pollution, according to a report released Wednesday by the American Lung Association. And the main culprit? Cough, hack: Tacoma and its sooty suburbs. “Our ranking is driven largely by the challenges we face in the Tacoma-Pierce County area, which has been designated as violating clean air standards for fine particle pollution by the Environmental Protection Agency,” said Craig Kenworthy, executive director of the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency. Emissions from diesel and gasoline engines are the biggest contributors to fine particle pollution, but in Pierce County, smoke from wood stoves are a major problem, too. The county’s air quality
consistently drops in winter when more people heat their homes by burning wood. More than 1,100 uncertified wood stoves have been replaced since 2007 through programs jointly operated by the Clean Air Agency, the city of Tacoma and Pierce County. Still, the area has about 75,000 wood stoves and fireplaces, according to city of Tacoma estimates. In the Lung Association’s “State of the Air 2011” report, the Seattle-TacomaOlympia metro area ranked 120th out of 220 metro areas for ozone pollution. Ozone is formed when various pollutants — primarily exhaust from motor vehicles — cook in summer heat and sun. The central Puget Sound region complies with current federal ozone pollution standards, but the EPA is to release a more-protective standard soon.
“We had probably the second-worst quarter for the insurance industry in terms of disasters around the globe,” Buffett said. Reinsurance companies, like Berkshire’s General Re and National Indemnity, sell backup insurance to primary insurers so the industry can cover big losses. Buffett estimates that Berkshire will report $1.5 billion in net income, down from $3.6 billion last year. He did not offer earnings per-share figures. Buffett and Berkshire Vice Chairman Charlie Munger spent nearly six hours answering questions at the annual meeting. One of the early ques-
tions asking why Buffett wasn’t tougher on Sokol drew mild applause from the audience because Buffett has always promised to be ruthless with anyone who hurts Berkshire’s reputation. Buffett said he didn’t have all the information about Sokol when he announced the former MidAmerican Energy chairman’s resignation in March. Buffett said he learned that Sokol had met with investment bankers about Lubrizol only after the deal was announced. Sokol denies any wrongdoing. Before his departure, Sokol had served as chairman of Berkshire’s MidAmerican Energy, NetJets and Johns Manville units. Buffett said all of Berkshire’s policies on ethics and insider trading will be reviewed to see if changes are needed, but he doesn’t think it makes sense to create a large compliance office to keep tabs on employees’ personal investments.
SEATTLE — Most cooks know by now that raw chicken can be a bacterial time bomb. But tests commissioned by Marler Clark, a Seattle law firm, are bringing that message home. Out of 100 whole chickens purchased at Seattlearea grocery stores in March, 80 harbored at least one type of disease-causing bacteria, including campylobacter and salmonella. Ten percent of the samples tested positive for the same antibiotic-resistant strain of staphylococcus bacteria responsible for an epidemic of hospital infections. Organic chickens were just as likely as conventionally raised chickens to be tainted with a wide range of germs. The tests were paid for by Marler Clark, which built its legal reputation on food-safety cases. But the results are similar to other surveys around the country, including one released last month that found nearly a quarter of chicken, turkey, beef and pork contaminated with drug-resistant staph bacteria.
National study A study by Consumer Reports magazine last year showed two-thirds of whole chickens purchased nationwide harbored salmonella
or campylobacter, the leading bacterial causes of food poisoning. “I was intrigued by these studies and wanted to see if we were having the same issues,” said attorney Bill Marler. “I think it’s a warning to consumers . . . and raises the issue of what industry’s responsibility is for lowering that level of bacterial contamination.” Richard Lobb, spokesman for the National Chicken Council, said the industry has done an “excellent job” of improving food safety.
Careful cleanup “But chicken is raw, and it does need to be handled and cooked in the normal and customary manner,” said Lobb. Cooking and careful cleanup can prevent foodborne illness. But it’s easy to spread contamination after handling chicken, Clark said. “You pick it up, then which counter did you set it on?” he asked. “Did you wipe your hands on your pant leg? Did it get under your fingernails?” The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in six Americans is sickened every year by food-borne pathogens, with 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths.
Salon can challenge rules on fish pedicure The Associated Press
PHOENIX — An Arizona appeals court said a business owner is entitled to challenge the constitutionality of state rules barring her from using fish in her salon pedicures. The Arizona Court of Appeals ruled Friday that Cindy Vong can sue over the Arizona Board of Cosmetology’s threat to pull her license if she didn’t stop offering the pedicure, which uses fish to eat dead skin
off clients’ feet. The board alleged the fish were unsafe because they couldn’t be sterilized. Conservative watchdog group The Goldwater Institute had filed a civil suit on her behalf, saying the broad ruling violated Vong’s right to run her business in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert. The lawsuit said the board lacks jurisdiction because the pedicure isn’t a cosmetic service. A lower court had dismissed the suit.

Lavender growers group updates website Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — The Sequim Lavender Growers Association has upgraded its website at www.lavenderfestival.com. The group produces the Sequim Lavender Festival, which will feature farm tours and a street fair featuring lavender and lavender products, food, crafts and music on Fir Street between Sequim Avenue and Third Avenue in downtown Sequim on July 15-17. It is one of two festivals planned during Sequim’s “lavender weekend.” “We need to be contemporary in our marketing of lavender,” said Terry Stolz, president of the growers association, in a statement. “There are new generations of interested consumers of our products out there.” Such consumers rely on websites, Facebook, Twitter and emails, he said. Stolz said the association used local
web designers for the upgrade. “We found that by staying local with our contractors we could keep the dollars here and obtain the face-to-face contact that is required for good website maintenance,” he said. “We recently welcomed [Internet provider] OlyPen in Sequim as part of Team Lavender for our service needs.” Stolz said information about the 15th Sequim Lavender Festival is also available by using a smartphone, iPad and other computer devices to scan a QR bar code on Lavender Festival literature and signs. The Sequim Lavender Farm Association, which broke off from the growers’ group earlier this year, will host the other festival — the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire — during the July 15-17 “lavender weekend.” Its vendor fair with lavender and lavender products, food, crafts and music will be based at Carrie Blake Park/
Reuse Demonstration Park. Both festivals will offer tours of Sequim lavender farms during the weekend. The growers’ association tour will be self-guided and free. The farm association’s tour will be by bus and cost $10 for advance tickets, $15 during the fair weekend. No admission will be charged for children 12 and under. Tickets for active military personnel and their dependants will be $10 at all times. For information about the Sequim Lavender Festival, check www.lavenderfestival.com or phone Mary and Paul Jendrucko at 360-582-1907.
May 10 meeting Sequim Lavender Farm Faire organizers will host a meeting to provide information to members of the public and potential volunteers on
Tuesday, May 10. The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express, 1441 E. Washington St. “If you have questions about the two lavender events and lavender weekend, would like to see what we have planned for the community, and learn how it will all work, this is the meeting for you,” said Scott Nagel, executive director of the farm association. At the meeting will be applications for volunteer positions such as manning information booths at Carrie Blake and at lavender farms on the Farm Faire tour; serving as tour bus docents; and working on production, traffic and concert operations. For information on the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire, visit www.sequim lavenderfarms.org, email info@sequim lavenderfarms.org or phone 360-4526300.
Why some fear GOP Medicare plan Some elderly link privatizing to future woes
But Ryan says the comparison isn’t valid because Medicare is financially unsustainable in the long run.
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Republican plan to privatize Medicare wouldn’t touch his benefits, but Walter Dotson still doesn’t like the idea. He worries about the consequences long after he’s gone, for the grandson he is raising. “I’d certainly hate to see him without the benefits that I’ve got,” said Dotson, 72, steering a high school sophomore toward adulthood. The loudest objections to the GOP Medicare plan are coming from seniors, who swung to Republicans in last year’s congressional elections, and many have been complaining at townhall meetings with their representatives during the current congressional recess. Some experts say GOP policymakers may have overlooked a defining trait among older people — concern for the welfare of the next generations. “I remember the days when we had poor farms and elderly people on welfare, before we had Social Security and Medicare for seniors, and I’m afraid it will lead right back to that situation,” added Dotson, who lives in the town of Cleveland in rural southwest Virginia. Another nagging worry for seniors may have more to do with self-interest.
The Associated Press
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., touts his 2012 federal budget — which includes the GOP Medicare plan — during an April 2 news conference. If Congress can make such a major change to Medicare for future retirees, what’s to stop lawmakers from coming back and applying it to everyone currently on the program?
Private insurance The budget passed earlier last month by House Republicans would replace Medicare with a government payment to buy private insurance, for people hitting age 65 in 2022 or later. Hailed as bold and visionary by some in Washington, the pro-
posal is stirring opposition around the country, polls show. No group has been more negative than seniors, although GOP lawmakers carefully exempted anyone now 55 or older. The plan’s author, House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., says he thinks the main problem is that President Barack Obama and his allies have distorted the details to scare older people. It is actually going to take something like what he’s proposing to save Medicare for future generations, Ryan maintains. “Seniors, as soon as they real-
ize this doesn’t affect them, they are not so opposed,” Ryan said in an interview. “I really don’t run into that much opposition. I run into some confusion. As soon as people understand what we are talking about, that clears the air.” A study by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that future retirees would pay much more under Ryan’s plan than if they went into traditional Medicare. By 2030, a typical 65-year-old would be paying two-thirds of his or her health costs.
Another part of the GOP budget would affect today’s retirees. It calls for repeal of Obama’s health care law, and that would eliminate new help for seniors with high prescription costs. It’s too early to tell how seniors’ views will settle out. The House budget could go down as a political blunder that costs Republicans the support of seniors in the 2012 elections. Or, since the budget has no chance of passing the Democraticcontrolled Senate, it could be a wash. It is already changed the political dynamic, said Robert Blendon, a Harvard professor who tracks public opinion on health care. Last year, nearly three out of five people 60 and older voted Republican, reflecting concern over Medicare cuts to finance Obama’s health care overhaul. Now Republicans are on the defensive. “It’s a way of Democrats taking the health care issue back to their side,” Blendon said. Seniors’ skepticism cuts across party lines, a problem for Republicans. An AP-GfK poll late last year, before House Republicans officially embraced Ryan’s approach, found 80 percent of seniors who are Democrats opposed Medicare privatization. Among Republicans age 65 and up, 71 percent were opposed. The poll asked about the idea generally, without linking it to Republicans.
Casinos sense opening in online poker problems By Oskar Garcia
The Associated Press
LAS VEGAS — The indictments that led to three major online poker companies shuttering U.S. operations have provided an opening for American casinos to cash in on an industry worth an untold billions of dollars.
Casinos want to fill the void created by the crackdown to create their own online poker sites should the game become legal in the U.S., giving them tens of thousands of potential consumers who have seen their pastimes and livelihoods eliminated by the prosecutions.

Federal ban Internet gambling was effectively banned in 2006 by a federal law that prohibited banks and credit card companies from processing payments from gambling companies to individuals. But it didn’t clearly state what kind of gambling was illegal, and many believe it left the door open for states and companies to consider the issue. “The policy up to now, which is no surprise to anybody, has been murky and arcane. Arcane is a good word from the SATs that
means mysterious and unfathomable,” said Wynn, the chief executive of Wynn Resorts Ltd. Wynn Resorts had a deal in place with PokerStars to partner in offering online poker to Americans if federal laws changed, but nixed the arrangement the same day the indictments were announced. “Most everything in Washington is mysterious and unfathomable,” Wynn told investors last week as his company reported its first-quarter earnings. “We’re trying to figure out what the hell the public policy is and then we can have a corporate policy.” The Department of Justice has yet to pursue legal actions against anyone for playing poker based on the 2006 law. The recent charges dealt with allegations that the poker sites were creating third-party operations that tricked banks into thinking gambling transactions were legitimate.
“The word ‘indictment’ is not one that you take lightly. However, what they’re indicting was the illegal activity of foreign operators in the United States,” said Loveman. “The solution to that problem is not simply to send our law enforcement people out chasing foreign operators. “The solution is to take a very simple pastime that’s been around this country for hundreds of years, and allow licensed, regulated providers to provide it.”
Wants to legalize Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a former Nevada state gambling regulator who supported the 2006 law, shares that sentiment. Reid attempted to push a bill to legalize online poker at the end of last year, but it fell short. He said it’s important that online poker is legalized in the next couple of years.

Their argument: Americans are playing poker online despite attempts to stop them, so why not allow legitimate casinos to offer the game? They also argue that governments could clearly use tax revenue from poker games. The push has gained momentum in the last week after billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn and his counterpart at Caesars Entertainment Corp. spoke out in favor of clarifying federal laws to explicitly allow Internet poker. Their advantage — if lawmakers ultimately see things the same way — is that it’s unlikely PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker will be allowed back into the U.S. market while their executives face allegations of bank fraud, money laundering and running illegal gambling businesses.

More lending urged WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Friday called for more lending to people and small businesses in lower-income neighborhoods, saying they’ve been disproportionately hurt by the recession. Many of the nation’s poorest communities were struggling before the downturn, Bernanke Bernanke said at a Fed conference on community development in Arlington, Va. Bernanke said the national economy is growing at a moderate pace and that job creation is gradually improving, repeating comments he made earlier in the week at a news conference after the Fed’s policy meeting.

southwest Washington. The Federal Way-based company on Friday reported net income of $99 million, or 18 cents per share, in the first three months of the year, compared with a loss of $20 million, or 10 cents per share, last year. Earnings in the most recent quarter included an after-tax gain of $96 million on the previously announced sale of 82,000 acres of timberlands in southwest Washington. Excluding this item, the company reported net earnings of $3 million. Revenue rose 11 percent to $1.58 billion. The company said it is taking advantage of higher demand from Asia by exporting more there. Strong export demand led to better selling prices and volumes for western logs. It is also making further strides in reducing costs in the face of “anemic housing market conditions.” In the second quarter, Weyerhaeuser expects to post a smaller loss in its wood products segment because of seasonally higher volumes. It expects slightly higher earnings in its timberlands and cellulose fibers businesses and a small profit in its homebuilding operations due to higher expected home sale closings.

Gown: Is wedding industry renergized? Continued from D1 The piece, which will sell for under $50 and was created by Kenneth Jay Lane, will be available to shoppers in two months. Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, didn’t break new fashion trends on Friday, but fashion experts say her elegant understated look, which featured a V-neck intricate lace bodice, is expected to bring back a new era of classic wedding dressing that was just starting to re-emerge in designers’ collections. In particular, her dress should spur a demand for lacey sleeves in all special-occasion wear and reverse the sexy strapless gowns that have been popular for several years.
Grace Kelly’s dress Many experts say that the princess’ gown, designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen’s fashion house, even paid homage to what Grace Kelly wore on her wedding day to the Prince of Monaco more than 50 years ago. More importantly, fashion industry experts like Brian Beitler, chief marketing officer of David’s Bridal, believe Middleton could re-energize the wedding industry, which has been hurt by the Great Recession as shoppers focused more on expense-cutting and less on the fairy tale.

Prince William and Princess Catherine walk hand in hand from Buckingham Palace in London on Saturday.
“I thought it was going to be over the top, but it was more about simplicity and elegance,” said Allen Schwartz, co-owner of A.B.S., which is known for pumping out copies of celebrity dresses. “This is Grace Kelly revisited. This is iconic. She will have a huge impact in fashion. She will be the new ‘It’ girl.” Schwartz, who started sketching as soon as the gown was revealed on TV, said his team arrived at 5:30 a.m. at his Los Angeles showroom, ready to cut the pattern. He unveiled the gown at a charity gala on Friday night and on Saturday, one of his A.B.S stores in the area had a sample on display for customers. The gowns, which will be produced in local factories, should be in department stores by late June. They will retail for $900. “Every bride wants to look like her,” said Shala Moradi, lead designer for family-owned Faviana, a special occasion and wedding dress design company based Vogue in New York.

Wait or first date? Readers weigh in Tales from the Front
COLLEEN IS THE woman who admitted she and her husband had sex on their first date, which was 33 years and two children ago. Said Colleen: “I’m always amused when couples talk about ‘waiting.’ I just think about how much fun they’re missing. “Truth be told, there are a lot of one-night stands who are celebrating their 33rd wedding anniversary.” Here’s what you had to say . . .

Vera Nice to see some things don’t change. Women are still shamed for wanting sex and engaging in onenight stands, while the exact same behavior from men is accepted, if not outright condoned. This nonsense about “the morals of an alley cat” drives me insane with anger. Check your double standards, people. What happens in the bedroom between other consenting adults is no one’s business and in no way reflects on their character.
Somehow I doubt Colleen’s husband will ever write to an advice columnist justifying his collection of porn and complaining that his wife won’t have sex with him.
I wonder how many guys and girls waited a long time for sex and afterward said, “Boy, that was so not worth the wait!”
Despite child support laws, women are primarily the ones left to deal with the consequences of indiscriminate sex. If, by this time, women have not figured this out and continue to walk into these situations and be used and tossed aside, well, don’t come crying to me when it’s all over and you feel used because it ain’t just a feeling.
It’s great that Colleen’s situation worked out well, but how many others did she and her husband have sex with on a first date before they found each other? Would she advocate the same process for her children finding mates? Probably not.
Ursula I made my guy wait for three months before we had sex. He said the wait was worth it. We’ve been married for 25 years.

Colleen and her husband would not work for everyone, and that’s where she’s misguided. Those of us who chose to wait didn’t miss any fun. We just postponed it until we were sure we found the right person.
Gloria I find it interesting that people won’t walk through a restaurant and steal bites of food off of other
patrons’ plates because it’s disgusting, but they have no qualms about taking a random patron home and having sex with them.
Annabelle For every couple who waits until marriage and has a fantastic sex life, there’s a couple who waits and finds out that they’re sexually incompatible. Waiting is not intrinsically better or worse. People need to be in tune with what they want and need, communicate it respectfully to their partner and then make the best decision for themselves without judgment.

Most of the women who are parents go all dewyeyed over the news and congratulate me.

DVDs, games can keep traveling kids entertained WE WILL BE traveling in the car quite a bit this summer. Are there new activities, books and games for kids ages 4 to 10 to do inside the car that are different and fun, yet educational?
Parent to Parent Jodie Lynn
Idaho parents We travel with four kids between the ages of 3 and 14. It is quite a challenge keeping this bunch entertained, especially since there are two teens and two younger kids. We try to encourage our older kids to come up with their own brainy ideas for the younger ones as well as for themselves. This works pretty well and gets their minds working on various

strategies. We also use make-up-as-we-go games. Since we try our best to make the trip memorable, this is the only time we actually push the envelope a little more in rewarding the kids for extraordinary thinking outside the box brain power and imagination. Whichever game or activity is enjoyed the most for the day, whoever came
The new Thomas and Friends Playdate 3-DVD set is now available and has singalongs, “fun with numbers,” a character gallery and more. There’s also the new Barney Playdate Pack 3-DVD set. Both are creative, fun and educational. These might be perfect to have on hand for the younger kids. For the older ones, there are things like Don’t Quote
Me – Magnetic Travel Games. They allow the kids to play a game and still take a gander out the window without the frustration of losing their place or the game pieces flying everywhere. To keep everyone energized and pumped about the trip, including mom and dad, taking frequent breaks outside works wonders. This is a great time to break out some of the latest items created by Crayola like the washable color bubbles, wand set and bubble launcher. Everyone will have a huge laugh and good time regardless of age. There are also many kid-friendly applications for the iPhone, iPad, etc.;
just implement the parental controls to ensure a safe and healthy activity. Of course, there’s still the games you used to play with your own parents while on a road trip that can be updated or utilized just as they are. The key is to have as much fun as possible and don’t forget to set aside time to simply talk to each other.
Can you help? My 11-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son love to eat pure junk for breakfast, which they do when visiting their grandparents in the summer. I would love to suggest healthier meals, including
breakfast to my parents but don’t want them to feel like I am trying to be a know-it-all about what to feed the kids. At our house, we try to eat organic food. How is the best way to suggest this to their grandparents? Maybe by sharing some new ideas for organic food that is easy to cook or can be eaten raw. Can you suggest prepackaged items?

Two to every story
Deede finds balance with bellydancing, truck driving By Diane Urbani Diane Urbani
Jovi Deede has been a bellydancer for 15 years and a truck driver for 12.
Paz (2)/for Peninsula Woman
PORT ANGELES — This spring, Jovi Deede is immersed in two vocations that have surprised, even baffled, her family. Bellydancing and truck-driving. About both, “They ask me, ‘Where did that come from?’” says Deede, a member of the Shula Azhar dance troupe and a driver for Lakeside Industries of Port Angeles. The dancing — which Deede will offer at 7:30 p.m. this Thursday and every first Thursday of the month at Wine on the Waterfront — began by happenstance. Deede, nee Jovi Rudder, went with her friend Summer Northern to a class in Sequim back in 1996. She was 19 and just along for the ride. “I was very shy,” says the woman who, these days, appears on stage as a whirling vision in veils and a bead-encrusted bra that shows off her blue belly tattoo.
her own skin. She became part of the North Olympic Beledi Club, a group named for a basic Middle Eastern drum rhythm. Members of Beledi later formed Shula Azhar (www.ShulaAzharbellydance.com), a six-woman troupe that will represent Port Angeles at next month’s Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle. Dancing on stage, Deede says, feels fantastic, whether the audience is a crowd of rapt fans or a handful of people who keep talking among themselves. This performer doesn’t worry about numbers, nor about the occasional intoxicated person in the audience who starts cheering inappropriately.
‘Connect with the music’
“My goal is to do my best, have fun and connect with the music,” says Deede, 34, who has adopted the stage name Ajaya. “Every audience is different. . . .

“No, it’s not unforgivable. But it is a very hard situation to overcome. “The reason is that the person who has forgiven has to bear the burden of the past. You may have forgiven, but the past is still there. “It’s always tough. But you have to put it to rest and look forward. It’s a do-over, I believe.”
“I would have to say no. It depends a lot on the circumstances. “You would have to consider if the infidelity was the first time or something that has been going on for months. “To me, marriage is forever. You just have to make it go. And it does take work. It takes give and take.”
