Sequim Bay toxin intensifies
to the North Olympic Peninsula
Mystery outbreak halts shellfish harvest BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€” A biotoxin that baffles biologists and health officials has once again closed Sequim Bay, the only body of saltwater in Washington state and the U.S. where diarrhetic shellfish poisoning has been found. Frank Cox, marine biotoxin coordinator with the state Department of Health, said the Tuesday DSP closure bans the recreational harvest of all shellfish in the bay and does not affect commercial operations. Discovery Bay, farther east in Jefferson County and where state health officials also are monitoring levels of DSP, is not affected by DSP. However, the countyâ€™s recreational shellfish harvest beaches are under a seasonal closure with other North Olympic Peninsula beaches. That closure is because of elevated levels to paralytic shellfish poisoning. Closures include the harvest of clams, including geoducks, oysters, mussels and other invertebrates such as the moon snails. All areas of Clallam County are closed for the sport harvest of scallops. The closures do not apply to shrimp. State health officials on Aug. 11 reported that three King County residents who ate mussels they harvested at Sequim Bay State Park in late June fell ill with DSP. TURN

His proposed legislation also revises the definition of DNR lands that require the pass for public access, expanding the term â€œrecreation site or landsâ€? to include campgrounds, trails, and trailheads. â€œI am concerned about the criteria the Department of Natural Resources has developed for determining whether a Discover Pass is required,â€? said Hargrove, a member of the Natural Resources & Marine Waters Committee.

Kid Rock, church team to aid needy KID ROCK IS teaming up with a Detroit church to give away hundreds of gift baskets and retail gift certificates to needy families in the area where he got his start and still calls home. The musician’s nonprofit organization joined Hartford Memorial Baptist Church on Rock Wednesday to distribute 100 gift certificates for Meijer retail and grocery stores, along with more than 300 gift baskets. Kid Rock, who was born Robert Ritchie, grew up and lives in suburban Detroit.
He and the Kid Rock Foundation have been honored this year for their philanthropic contributions by Goodfellows Detroit and the NAACP’s Detroit branch. Kid Rock is known for dabbling in various musical styles, from hip-hop and hard rock to country and Southern rock.

Juvonen said that Lambert’s boyfriend, “Finnish

WEDNESDAY’S QUESTION: Finished with Christmas shopping?
By The Associated Press
JOHN CHAMBERLAIN, 84, who almost singlehandedly gave automotive metal a place in the history of sculpture, smashing and twisting together a poetic fusion of Abstract Expressionism and Pop from fenders, fins, bumpers and hoods, died Wednesday in Manhattan, N.Y. His wife, Prudence Fairweather, announced his death but declined to give a cause. He Mr. had spent Chamberlain his last years mostly in Shelter Island, N.Y. In a restless career of almost half a century, Mr. Chamberlain worked with a broad range of materials, some as pliant as foam rubber and as ephemeral as brown paper bags. But he returned again and again to the more substantial stuff of the scrap yard, explaining the attraction as one of practicality.
Mr. Chamberlain devoted his life to challenging traditional notions of sculpture and to eroding the boundaries between sculpture and painting. He was among a wave of late-modernist sculptors who put color on an almost equal footing with form, and he had an uncanny ability, as the curator Klaus Kertess wrote, “to make roundness into color and color into roundness.”
________ ROBERT EASTON, 81, a character actor whose command of a vast array of foreign and American regional accents led to a flourishing second career as a dialect coach to Hollywood stars such as Charlton Heston and Anne Hathaway, has died. Often called the Henry Higgins of Hollywood, he died of natural causes Dec. 16 at his home in Toluca Lake, Calif., said his daughter, Heather Woodruff Perry. A consummate phoneticist like Higgins, the exacting speech tutor in the musical “My Fair Lady,” Mr. Easton taught Forest
Whitaker the African inflections of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and Ben Kingsley the gruff tones of a New York mobster. He helped Arnold Schwarzenegger turn his Austrian accent into Russian English and Liam Neeson’s Irish brogue into a Kentucky drawl. He once coached Heston from a bathtub in Munich, helping the actor pronounce his lines like a Scot. Despite recent health problems, Mr. Easton continued to coach via telephone and tape recorder. “A month ago, he did an entire script on tape for John Travolta,” his daughter said.

Court-martial pro, cons told in WikiLeaks case THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
FORT MEADE, Md. — An Army intelligence analyst defied the nation’s trust by indiscriminately pulling more than 700,000 documents from a supposedly secure computer network and giving reams of national secrets to WikiLeaks, a military prosecutor argued Thursday at the close of a hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning. A defense attorney said the Army had failed the troubled young soldier and is now piling on charges in an attempt to strongarm him into pleading guilty.

Iraqi security forces and others inspect the scene of a car bomb attack in Baghdad on Thursday.
69 die in wave of bombings across Baghdad BAGHDAD — A wave of 16 bombings ripped across Baghdad Thursday, killing at least 69 people in the worst violence in Iraq for months. The apparently coordinated attacks struck days after the last American forces left the country and in the midst of a major government crisis between Shiite and Sunni politicians that has sent sectarian tensions soaring. The bombings may be linked more to the U.S. withdrawal than the political crisis, but all together, the developments heighten fears of a new round of Shiite-Sunni sectarian bloodshed like the one a few years back that pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. But the
bombings bore all the hallmarks of al-Qaida’s Sunni insurgents.
Genocide law PARIS — French lawmakers easily passed a measure Thursday to make it a crime to deny the mass killings of Armenians in 1915 by Ottoman Turks amounted to genocide. Turkey swiftly retaliated, ordering its ambassador home and halting official contacts, including some military cooperation. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced a series of retaliatory measures, recalling the country’s ambassador to France and suspending joint military maneuvers and restricting French military flights. Turkey, a NATO member, is a strategic ally of France and valued trading partner, and the moves diminish ties at a particularly crucial time. The Associated Press
The summations at Fort Meade ended a preliminary hearing to determine whether Manning should be court-martialed on 22 charges, including aiding the enemy. He faces life in prison. Prosecutors said Manning signed seven agreements to protect government secrets. They said he then made sure those secrets were published online for America’s enemies to see. “Pfc. Manning gave enemies of the United States unfettered
access to these government documents,” Capt. Ashden Fein said, pounding the podium. The defense team said Manning was nearly paralyzed by internal struggles over his belief that he was a woman trapped in a man’s body. They said his chain of command failed to suspend his access to classified data despite clear signs of emotional distress, including his statement to a supervisor that he had multiple personalities. Civilian defense attorney David Coombs called the intelligence division of Manning’s battalion a “lawless unit” for allowing soldiers to load personal music CDs onto their workplace computers and play music, movies and video games stored on a network meant for classified data. He said the government needs “a reality check” for bringing such serious charges against Manning. And he challenged the government’s original decision to classify as “secret” the material the WikiLeaks website published. Prosecutors noted that although the material has been published, the military still considers it classified. Manning’s supporters say the
information published by WikiLeaks exposed war crimes and triggered the wave of prodemocracy uprisings in the Middle East. It still could be weeks before Manning learns whether he will be court-martialed. The presiding officer, Lt. Col. Paul Almanza, will have until Jan. 16 to recommend whether the 24-year-old Crescent, Okla., native should stand trial.
19 months since charged It’s been nearly 19 months since Manning was charged with giving WikiLeaks a trove of classified data, including hundreds of thousands of State Department diplomatic cables and raw battlefield reports from Iraq and Afghanistan. There was also video of a laughing U.S. helicopter crew gunning down 11 men, including a Reuters cameraman and his driver, in a clip WikiLeaks dubbed “Collateral Murder.” The reason Manning allegedly gave for the disclosures, in online chats with a confidant who turned him in: “I want people to see the truth.”
Mistakes made in Pakistani border deaths, U.S. concedes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — A top U.S. general said Thursday that an “overarching lack of trust” between the U.S. and Pakistan, as well as several key communication errors, led to the NATO airstrikes last month near the Afghan border that killed two dozen Pakistani troops. Brig. Gen. Stephen Clark, an Air Force special operations officer who led the investigation into the incident, said U.S. forces used the wrong maps, were unaware of Pakistani border post locations and mistakenly provided the
wrong location for the troops. Clark described a confusing series of gaffes rooted in the fact that U.S. and Pakistan don’t trust each other enough to provide details about their locations and military operations along the border. As a result, U.S. forces on that dark Nov. 26 night thought they were under attack, believed there were no Pakistani forces in the area and called in airstrikes on what they thought were enemy insurgents. The Pentagon did not apologize for the action, as Pakistan has demanded, and has not briefed
Pakistani leaders on the results of the investigation, which was released Thursday morning. “For the loss of life and for the lack of proper coordination between U.S. and Pakistani forces that contributed to those losses, we express our deepest regret,” Pentagon spokesman George Little told reporters. He added that the U.S wants to learn from the mistakes and take any corrective measures needed to make sure such mistakes aren’t repeated. Pakistani officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the report.

Curator of space hoping for â€˜Christmas miracleâ€™ of return BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The message of a Port Townsend artistâ€™s painting apparently was taken too literally last week. The painting, titled â€œFree,â€? was found to be missing from its spot on a wall in the Undertown Cafe a week ago, said its creator, Jesse Watson. Watson said he discovered that his painting was missing when he was setting up his drums on Friday night. The theft has not been

Anyone with information about the painting, or to return it, is asked to contact Nasset at 360-3791029.

Sixth baby Jesus figure stolen from PA Nativity PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Another baby Jesus was taken from a Port Angeles Nativity scene Tuesday night, a resident told the Peninsula Daily News. Wade Powers said his wife, Annie, discovered the missing ceramic Jesus from their yard on Rook Drive off Mount Angeles Road at about noon Wednesday. At first, Annie thought her husband was pulling a prank in the wake of five baby Jesus figures that were reported in the PDN on Wednesday as having been stolen. “I guess we joined the
club,” Wade Powers said. Powers said he did not report the theft to police because he was embarrassed. “It’s a very, very unfortunate thing that people would do this,” said Port Angeles Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith, adding that people take a lot of pride and put a lot of effort into their Nativity scenes. “It’s pretty disappointing that people would do this.” Two Port Angeles women, Kristina Russell and Merri Wilson, told police they suspected a Nativity theft ring was in operation after the lighted
plastic statues of the infant Jesus of Nazareth were stolen from at least five Nativity sets in their neighborhood on South N Street over the weekend. The problem isn’t confined to Port Angeles, Smith said, adding that baby Jesus statues are taken all over the country.

SEQUIM — The cause of a fire that charred part of an East Belfield Avenue home Tuesday morning is “undetermined,” a Clallam County Fire District No. 3 assistant chief said. Roger Moeder, who headed up the investigation into the fire’s cause, said the department was unable to determine the cause of the fire based on the witnesses’ account. “Smoking could be a possibility, an electrical charger could be a possibility, a candle could be a possibility,” Moeder said, adding that it is “fairly typical” that investigators cannot corroborate a witness’ story with investigators’ findings. No one was hurt in the fire inside the rental home at 871 E. Belfield Ave., where a half-burned mattress and charred bedding material were pulled out of the home and left on the front lawn. The fire reported shortly after 9 a.m. resulted in extensive damage to the bedroom where it originated, and minor smoke damage throughout the rest of the home. The homeowner, Chad Copeland, said his insurance should cover the damage and he would relocate the two men and two children living in the home to another of his rentals.
“Smoking could be a possibility, an electrical charger could be a possibility, a candle could be a possibility.” ROGER MOEDER assistant chief Clallam Country Fire District No. 3 Fire district spokesman Patrick Young said one of the men was sleeping at the time of the fire and another came home, both realizing the house was filled with smoke. “Mattress fires burn hot and smoky,” Young said. They both escaped the smoky fire, were examined by emergency medical technicians with Olympic Ambulance at the scene, and released without being transported to the hospital. Clallam County Fire District No. 3 firefighters doused it about 9:30 a.m.

SEQUIM — The Sequim School Board is taking another step in the search for a new district superintendent. The board and its newly hired search firm, McPherson & Jacobson, will open the district’s doors Jan. 18 to hear what qualities the public and district staff want in the top executive. Everyone from school support staff to students to the general public will be asked for their comments. “We have a need to make sure that the person fits a lot of needs,” said Sarah Bedinger, School Board chairwoman. The Sequim School Board recently contracted with McPherson & Jacobson to help search for a new superintendent to succeed Bill Bentley, who resigned effective June 30 to seek other opportunities. McPherson & Jacobson is providing a decisionmaking model for the school board. The firm is headquartered in Omaha, Neb. Bentley announced at the Nov. 7 board meeting that he was resigning at the end of the 2011-12 school year.
He has been with the district since July 1, 2007. McPherson & Jacobson consultant Richard Parker, who is based in Langley, helped the board begin the task of developing selection criteria during a Dec. 13 planning meeting. The five-member school board identified a list of desirable characteristics for superintendent candidates, and developed a schedule for interviews and screening. Parker can be reached by email at parker@ macnjake.com.

Ecology fines Pettit Oil for February spill PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIA â€” The state has fined Pettit Oil Co. and billed it for damages from a February diesel fuel spill on the West End, while also praising the company for its quick response. Pettit Oil â€” which is based in Tacoma with offices in Port Angeles, Forks and Hoquiam â€” was fined $4,500 by the state Department of Ecology and billed $10,996 in cleanup costs, the state department announced this week.

Fuel drained under the highway and made its way into the waterways, Ecology said. â€œThis was an unfortunate event, one that created significant environmental threats,â€? Sachet said. â€œAny time fuel is spilled into a creek or a wetland it causes damage,â€? he said.
Cleanup Cowlitz Clean Sweep, hired by Pettit, and responders from Ecology and Hoh and Quileute tribes used booms and adsorbent pads to contain the spill. The spill also drew response from the state Department of Fish & Wildlife, the Department of Transportation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Ecology. Cleanup activities included: â– Construction of trenches to divert additional fuel from the creek. â– Recovering, removing and disposing of contaminated soil, restoring damaged property. â– Recovering spilled oil from the tanks, ditches and state waters. Steps were also taken to protect the Hoh tribeâ€™s steelhead fish hatchery from the spill. While damage to the fisheries resources was averted, and the company has taken steps to mitigate damage, the company may still be liable for costs associated with damage to the creek and wetlands, Sachet said. Penalties collected are deposited in special accounts for environmental restoration and enhancement projects.

SEATTLE â€” State officials will consider a request to allow medical marijuana for people with attentiondeficit disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The petition is the latest attempt to add mental illnesses to Washingtonâ€™s list of qualifying conditions for
conditions he said he has suffered from for years. The Medical Quality Assurance Commission and the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery will consider the manâ€™s petition at a hearing on Jan. 11. â€œWhat theyâ€™re looking for is some clinical and scientific basis for adopting it,â€? said Blake Maresh, the osteopathic boardâ€™s executive director. In February 2010, the
medical commission denied a request from a man who had suffered from a social anxiety disorder since the fifth grade. He said cannabis had helped him more than any other treatment. Other patients with bipolar disorder, severe depression and other anxiety disorders also told the commission that marijuana was the only thing that helped.
But the commission found insufficient scientific evidence that showed pot helped patients with those conditions. It found that no rigorous, controlled, randomized, peer-reviewed and published trial had been done on the issue. The last qualifying condition added for medical marijuana in Washington was chronic renal failure in 2010.

Environmental sue over flood policies BY DONNA BLANKINSHIP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — The National Wildlife Federation filed a motion in U.S. District Court on Wednesday asking a judge to stop the U.S. government from issuing any more flood insurance policies for new development in flood-prone areas around Puget Sound until it changes its flood plain plans to consider the impact on endangered species like salmon and orcas. The motion for a preliminary injunction is the latest move in a decades-long fight to get the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay more attention to endangered species, said Jan Hasselman, an attorney for Earthjustice. Earthjustice is an environmental law firm that filed a motion in Seattle, on behalf of the National Wildlife Federation. The federation, an environmental group, won a lawsuit in 2004 that found FEMA did not create its flood plain management standards with the Endangered Species Act in mind. Hasselman said the National Marine Fisheries Service in 2008 issued a plan for changing the flood standards, setting various deadlines, the last of which recently passed. “They’re continuing to issue flood plain insurance for new developments in flood plains, incentivizing activities not just harmful to salmon, but harmful to people,” Hasselman said.

Emergency stop SPOKANE — A United Airlines flight from Chicago to Portland made an unscheduled landing Wednesday night in Spokane, where passengers had to spend the night. The plane had made a routine stop for refueling at Spokane International Airport. But after it took off, the pilot noticed a problem with hydraulics and decided to turn around. Emergency crews were on hand as a precaution. The plane landed safely. It wasn’t easy to find another flight to Portland.
Parting shot? PORT ORCHARD — The outgoing mayor of Port Orchard, who lost the election by five votes, has appointed his wife to the city’s Planning Commission. City Attorney Greg Jacoby said that because Mayor Lary Coppola is leaving his post, there is no conflict of interest in appointing Dee Coppola to the commission, which advises the city council on land-use issues. Supporters of the mayor-elect, Tim Matthes, see the appointment as a parting shot by Coppola, and they voted against it during the confirmation hearing. Matthes is the Planning Commission chairman. The Kitsap Sun reported that Coppola already serves on a number of local boards and committees, including the Home Builders Association of Kitsap County. The Associated Press

I-1183 bit of bummer for boutique booze Initiative elements put distillers in limbo BY GALE FIEGE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SNOHOMISH — Some craft distillers say they’re struggling ever since voters passed Initiative 1183 reforming how people buy and sell hard liquor in the state. Skip Rock Distillery owners Julie and Ryan Hembree in Snohomish said the state stopped buying their potato vodka even before the measure was approved in November. All the state’s small distillers were supposed to be allowed to market their liquor beginning this month, but that’s been pushed back until at least March 1 as officials figure out how to get the state out of the liquorselling business. “We’re in a state of limbo. I look forward to seeing more special orders come through the state’s ordering process,” Ryan Hembree said. “But the state’s initial reaction to 1183 passing was to kill all orders from newly established craft distilleries like ours.” After calling state liquor board chairwoman Sharon Foster last week, Ryan Hembree said he believes the state continues to value craft distillers and that special orders should continue until March. “We just need it to happen sooner than later,” he said. “We can only sell so many Skip Rock T-shirts, sweatshirts and hats.”
After I-1183 Before I-1183, the state ran the liquor system and bought and distributed all of the hard liquor sold throughout the state. The state will continue to run liquor stores until next summer, when it has to get rid of its stock and allow private business to take over. Only retail stores that are 10,000 square feet or larger will be able to sell hard alcohol. Since the measure passed, the state Liquor Control Board and the state Department of Revenue have been working to establish new rules that mesh with the new law. “It’s very complicated
“We just need it to happen sooner than later. We can only sell so many Skip Rock T-shirts, sweatshirts and hats.” RYAN HEMBREE on his belief that the state continues to value craft distillers. stuff,” said liquor board spokesman Brian Smith. “And the initiative did not take the craft distillery model into account.” Just a few years ago, the Legislature allowed small distillers to make spirits and even offer tastings at their distilleries — a first since Prohibition. But distillers had to actually buy back their own booze to pour in their tasting rooms. Starting this month, local craft distillers were allowed to serve from their own bottles at their shops without the state intervening. However, distillers now have to pay a 10 percent distributor license fee and a 17 percent retail spirits license fee on gross sales. And they have to wait until March 1 to be able to sell directly to licensed retailers.
A little bleak Though the Hembrees are optimistic about the future of their business, things look a little bleak right now. A bottle of their vodka costs $33.95 in the liquor store. What the Hembrees and their business partners make on that bottle is about $3. If the state continues to impose high retail and distribution fees, the chance to make more on their product is thin. “We are a small business. Just to handle all the paperwork from the state is costly,” Julie Hembree said. “We’ve invested in a lot of education, expensive German-made equipment and permits. We can’t walk away from it.” The Hembrees don’t have a tasting room set up yet. For now, they are encouraging restaurant owners in Snohomish and Skip Rock fans to buy the vodka at state and contract liquor stores in the county and

Reid Jensen owns RBDL distillery near Marysville. Jensen, a building contractor by trade, would like to turn his distillery hobby into a money-maker. He doesn’t have any faith that a big warehouse store would ever buy his RBDL vodka. “I can’t compete against the big vodka companies or Costco’s Kirkland brand,” Jensen said. “For the small guy, the way the state had it set up before 1183 was really the best, even though people hardly made any money. “Everybody took their products to the single distributor, the liquor stores. It was a tough go, but now I think we will see a lot of distilleries just shut down.” Some members of the Washington Craft Distillers association have complained that state Attorney General’s Office is directing the legal interpretation of the initiative to favor big business distributors, making it even more difficult for craft distillers to survive. “We are trying to keep things as equitable as possible,” Smith said. “And that means keeping craft distilleries in mind.”
Award-winning The Hembrees produced their first bottle this past March and just earned a 2011 international gold medal award for Skip Rock vodka from the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago. Skip Rock is among just seven distilleries in the country that make potato vodka, and the only one that makes the spirit from Yukon gold potatoes grown in Skagit Valley, Ryan Hembree said.

We would like to keep sharing this with people.” Distilleries around the state are urging people to ask liquor store managers for a craft products and order local spirits from their bartenders, the Hembrees said.

ABERDEEN — The Grinch Fund campaign to give laid-off Aberdeen diner employees unpaid back wages has exceeded its goal and resulted in job offers. KXRO reported that the operator of several Denny’s franchises, Chris Haque, donated $3,000 to the fund and offered jobs to workers willing to work at his restaurants in Seattle and Olympia.
Haque told KXRO he’s also looking into the possibility of reopening the America’s Diner in Aberdeen as a Denny’s. Regular customer Glenn Ludwig started the Grinch Fund to help a dozen workers who hadn’t received a paycheck since before Thanksgiving. His goal was $16,000. The fund now has nearly $20,000. The surplus will go to charity.

The Skip Rock Distillery partners also are participating in regional food events where they can sell their vodka and are considering selling it in Oregon and British Columbia. “We hope that companies such as Costco will consider showcasing local products in their liquor sales,” Ryan Hembree said. “We would love to talk with them.”

Taking the ‘Merry’ out of Christmas WHITE STEAM BILLOWING from tall stacks last century appeared beautiful to families supported by the North Olympic Peninsula’s big mills. In boom times, Clallam and Jefferson Martha M. counties were Ireland home to more than 1,000 millworkers, plus thousands more in the woods and tens of thousands in indirect jobs. Port Angeles boasted paper, pulp and plywood mills. Port Townsend prized its paper mill. Communities grew up around sawmills at Carlsborg, Port Ludlow and Blyn. Logging made Forks the “Timber Capital of the World” and gave rise to numerous small shake mills. In the late 20th century, jobgenerating industry lost its luster. Noses wrinkled at “smokestack” aromas, the body politic
voiced concern about pollution. Some folks wanted the mills to clean-up. Others wanted the mills to close up. Timber harvests that fed the mills, they said, were bad for birds, wildlife and tourism. Long before the national recession, the timber industry came under intense regulatory scrutiny from both governmental and self-appointed environmental overseers and began experiencing far more bust than boom. In 1997, Rayonier Inc. closed its Port Angeles pulp mill and subsequently razed the structure. Debate over whether the state Department of Ecology or the federal Environmental Protection Agency should oversee cleanup of the mill site ended with the state getting the job. Ecology’s procedure was expected to move faster than the feds. To date, Ecology has overseen 14 years of process — and virtually no progress. Port Angeles’ Peninsula Plywood might be headed toward the same path. The Port of Port Angeles, owner of the mill site, lost more
than $200,000 in past-due rent and utility charges and 132 people lost their jobs in November 2007 when the plywood mill was shuttered by Klukwan Inc. One Klukwan employee, Josh Renshaw, lined up local investors and reopened the mill March 1, 2010, only to suffer an equipment fire two months later. Nevertheless, Renshaw’s PenPly provided employment for 22 months for as many as 159 people — before conceding defeat Tuesday. Out an additional $300,000 in uncollectible rent and utilities, the port will pursue tearing the old mill down to open space for more lucrative marine trades activity. A full environmental assessment will delay demolition beyond 2012 — possibly far beyond, as seen at the Rayonier site. The remaining mills in Port Angeles and Port Townsend are both under siege by the same environmental militia that has the Rayonier site hog-tied with the regulatory process. Proposed biomass projects at both mills — potential investments of $55 million at Port
Peninsula Voices Wild Olympics pro As a local supporter of the Wild Olympics Campaign, I was surprised to see the letter from a fellow reader commenting on how Olympic National Park was a “tax sinkhole.” So I decided to do a bit of research. ONP is consistently one of our most visited and popular national parks. In 2009 alone, more than 3 million visitors enjoyed its ancient forests, wild rivers and waterfalls. An impact report conducted in 2000 showed that Olympic National Park visitors spent $90 million in the local area, generating $29 million in direct personal income (wages and salaries) for local residents and supporting 1,900 jobs in area tourism businesses. Another $27 million in sales was generated
through secondary effects, as visitor spending circulates through the local economy. No doubt, the park and the surrounding wilderness areas that draw visitors continue to play a beneficial role in our economy today. The benefits do not end there. Protected forests and rivers are great for salmon habitat and support our commercial, sport and subsistence fishing industry. Many communities around the Peninsula receive their clean water from our watersheds that originate in protected areas. Here in Sequim, the Dungeness is not only a major source of our drinking water, but also the lifeblood of the valley’s agricultural industry. Its origins are in the park, and it flows through
the Buckhorn Wilderness Area. As someone who cares about the overall health of my local community, both economic and otherwise, I applaud Congressman [Norm] Dicks and Sen. [Patty] Murray’s efforts to move forward with a watershed protection proposal. Dr. Crystal Tack, Sequim
Wild Olympics con The progressive pinko bureaucrats are again busily eroding America’s future. The latest scheme is to lock away water and land from public beneficial use by declaring it wilderness or scenic (how sweet). The latest iteration of this scam is the Wild Olympics Campaign. This do-gooder policy as
Townsend Paper and $71 million at Nippon Paper Industries USA’s mill in Port Angeles — are targeted by objectors, some of whom openly dream of shutting down both mills. Restricting commerce in Olympic National Forest and locking down the park will create tourism to replace mill jobs, activists contend. That jobs plan would perpetuate the findings of the state Employment Security Department’s first-in-the-nation survey of “exhaustees” — people who’ve exhausted their unemployment benefits. Four-fifths of re-employed Washington state exhaustees earn an average of 29 percent less than before they were laid off, the survey found. That’s the fortunate 25 percent. Fully 75 percent of exhaustees remain jobless. “Unemployed workers simply running out of benefits” contributed to a 12 percent drop in the number of people receiving unemployment benefits in 2011, compared with 2010 and 2009, said Employment Security Commissioner Paul Trause in a news
release Wednesday. I believe regulatory excesses are a largely unrecognized factor in the nationwide loss of wellpaid industrial jobs. Similar governmental micromanagement contributed to high deficits and unemployment in New Zealand in the 1970s and early 1980s, driving a mass exodus of young people, until a reform Parliament reversed course. Lack of work here drove some now-middle-aged New Zealanders to return to their homeland this year, taking their American families with them. My daughter and granddaughters now live half-a-world away. I find it a bit hard to say, “Merry Christmas.”

Housebound for the holidays RIGHT NOW, YOU are probably asking yourself: What exactly is going on with Congress? What’s all this yelling about a tax increase? Also, are they shutting down Gail the government Collins again? I was really planning to spend my Christmas camping out in a national park. Good news! Congress did not shut down the government this month. It was sort of dancing around the idea, but the country has grown so inured to this kind of behavior that nobody paid any attention. Then our lawmakers moved on to a crisis over the payroll tax, unemployment compensation and Medicare. On which they totally dropped the ball. As things stand now, on Jan. 1, doctors who treat Medicare patients will get a huge cut in pay and the state unemployment compensation systems will be thrown into chaos. People who have been out of work for more than half a year will start falling out of the system in a near-random fashion. Some of those who have been unemployed for 25 weeks will lose their benefits before others who have been collecting for 70. Also, payroll taxes for Social Security will rise for everybody. That is really unfortunate, but the Medicare and unemployment compensation parts are worse. On Tuesday, the House majority defeated a bipartisan Senate plan to resolve the problem. They framed the issue as a fight between hard-working Republicans and lazy Democrats/senators who were afraid to give up their vacations in order to stay in Washing-
ton for more stimulating debates. “As a cardiothoracic surgeon, I often worked through the holidays!” said Rep. Larry Bucshon of Indiana. Rep. Charles Boustany Jr. of Louisiana, another doctor, regaled the members with the story of a Christmas Eve when “I was getting ready to sit down for dinner with my family when I got called to see an 85-year-old Cajun gentleman, with a very large family, who had a ruptured aneurysm, and he was in shock. I spent the entire night operating on this man.” “My three employees — Irv, Dirk and Larry — they’re all at work today!” said Rep. Bill Huizenga, a Michigan Republican and the co-owner of Huizenga Gravel. It does seem a little unfair to bring Irv, Dirk and Larry into the fight, because they probably are not required to spend their free time raising donations for the next election season. This battle goes back to 2010, when President Barack Obama made a deal to continue the dreaded Bush tax cuts in return for a yearlong payroll tax cut, which benefits lower-income workers, and extended federal benefits for the unemployed. The House Republicans never loved the second part of the deal, and — in the spirit of the season — I will not suggest that this was because they only like tax cuts for rich people. Anyhow, earlier this month, the House did pass a bill extending the tax cut for another year. Perhaps coincidentally, it was also packed with things that the Senate Democrats were bound to hate, from freezing the pay of federal employees to doing something to environmental regulations of boilers that I could not possibly explain to you if I had a week. When the bill made its way to an unwelcoming Senate, a miracle occurred. Angels sang, a star rose in the east and the Democrats and Republicans worked out a compromise. This was, admittedly, an old-
fashioned Congressional compromise that resembled the offspring of a wart hog and vampire bat. But it kept the status quo going for another two months. Happiness reigned! Most of the Republican senators voted for the bill, and everybody started packing for vacation. Alas, the compromise flamed the fiercest rancor and resentment that exists on Capitol Hill — the hatred of the House for the Senate. Really, no matter who’s in charge in Washington, the House hates the Senate. The House hated the Senate when James Monroe was in it. The Republican House members had a meeting. According to The Washington Post, a number of members begged to be allowed to fight to the death for their original plan in the manner of the movie “Braveheart.” The idea that people were demanding that their leaders act like Mel Gibson should give you an idea of how out of control things had gotten. So the House rejected the Senate compromise, while arguing that vacations are for sissies. “We are not afraid to vote!” cried Rep. Allen West, a freshman Republican from Florida. West was having an actionpacked day, fending off a resolution condemning him for saying “if Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine.” People, did we not have an agreement that politicians were going to stop comparing each other to the Nazis? Really, sometimes it seems as though nothing can ever get done. Even if you’ll settle for a mutant wart hog-vampire bat.

First lady’s unsavory school lunch flop THE ROAD TO gastric hell is paved with first lady Michelle Obama’s Nanny State intentions. Don’t take my word for it. Schoolkids in Los Angeles have blown the whistle on the East Wing chef-in-chief’s healthy lunch diktats. Get your Pepto Bismol Michelle ready. Malkin The taste of government waste is indigestion-inducing. According to a weekend report by the Los Angeles Times, the city’s “trailblazing introduction of healthful school lunches has been a flop.” In response to the public hectoring and financial inducement of Mrs. Obama’s federally subsidized anti-obesity campaign, the district dropped chicken nuggets, corn dogs and flavored milk from the menu for “beef jambalaya, vegetable curry, pad Thai, lentil and brown rice cutlets, and quinoa and black-eyed pea salads.” Sounds delectable in theory. But in practice, the initiative has been what L.A. Unified’s food services director Dennis Barrett plainly concludes is a “disaster.” While the Obama administration has showered the nation’s second-largest school district with nutrition awards, thousands of students voted with their upset tummies and abandoned the program. A forbidden-food black market — stoked not just by students, but also by teachers — is now thriving. Moreover, “[school] principals report massive waste, with unopened milk cartons and uneaten entrees being thrown away.” This despite a massive increase in spending on nutri-
tional improvements — from $2 million to $20 million alone in the last five years on fresh produce. This despite a nearly half-billion-dollar budget shortfall and 3,000 layoffs earlier this year. Earlier this spring, L.A. school officials acknowledged that the sprawling district is left with a whopping 21,000 uneaten meals a day, in part because the federal school lunch program “sometimes requires more food to be served than a child wants to eat.” The leftovers will now be donated to nonprofit agencies. But after the recipients hear about students’ reports of moldy noodles, undercooked meat and hard rice, one wonders how much of the “free” food will go down the hatch — or down the drain. Ahhh, savor the flavor of onesize-fits-all mandates. There’s nothing wrong with encouraging our children to eat healthier, of course. There’s nothing wrong with well-run, locally based and parent-driven efforts. But as I’ve noted before, the federal foodie cops care much less about students’ waistlines than they do about boosting government and public union payrolls. In a little-noticed announcement several months ago, Obama health officials declared their intention to use school lunch applications to boost government health care rolls. Never mind the privacy concerns of parents. Big Government programs “for the children” are never about the children. If they were, you wouldn’t see Chicago public school officials banning students from bringing home-packed meals made by their own parents. In April, The Chicago Tribune reported that “unless they have a medical excuse, they must eat the food served in the cafeteria.” The bottom line? Banning homemade lunches
means a fatter payday for the school and its food provider. Remember: The unwritten mantra driving Mrs. Obama’s federal school lunch meddling and expansion is: “Cede the children, feed the state.” And the biggest beneficiaries of her efforts over the past three years have been her husband’s deep-pocketed pals at the Service Employees International Union. There are 400,000 workers who prepare and serve lunch to American schoolchildren. SEIU represents tens of thousands of those workers and is trying to unionize many more at all costs. In L.A., the district’s cafeteria fund is $20 million in the hole thanks to political finagling by SEIU Local 99. The union’s left-wing allies on the School Board and in the mayor’s office pressured the district to adopt reckless fiscal policies awarding gold-plated health benefits to part-time cafeteria workers in the name of “social justice.” As one School Board member who opposed the budget-busting entitlements said: “Everyone in this country deserves health benefits. But it was a very expensive proposal. “And it wasn’t done at the bargaining table, which is where health benefits are usually negotiated. “And no one had any idea where the money was going to come from.” Early next year, Mrs. Obama will use the “success” of her child nutrition campaign to hawk a new tome and lobby for more money and power in concert with her husband’s re-election campaign. It’s a recipe for more halfbaked progressivism served with a side order of bitter arugula.

Tharinger honored for service to Clallam Fellow commissioners recall his ethics, integrity BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Steve Tharinger shared laughter and tears with his fellow Clallam County commissioners during his last county meeting as he reflected on his 12 years of service in county government. Tharinger received a two standing ovations Tuesday — one before casting his final votes as a District 1 commissioner and another at an impromptu retirement program at a reception in his honor. Tharinger, 62, will continue to serve his constituents and many others as a state representative for the 24th District, which covers all of Clallam and Jefferson counties and about half of Grays Harbor County.
Decision for future When his first legislative session concluded last spring, Tharinger announced he would not seek a fourth four-year term as a county commissioner. He cited the time constraints of working both jobs simultaneously. Tharinger participated in county business meetings, public hearings and work sessions by speakerphone when the state Legislature was in session. “It’s obviously a little bittersweet for me to be moving on,” Tharinger told a crowd of about 100 at the reception. “I think it’s just the election cycle, the way it worked out. It was just the right thing for me to do.” Sequim Republican Jim McEntire defeated Sequim Democrat Linda Barn-
father in the November election to fill Tharinger’s post as the county commissioner for District 1, which covers the eastern third of the county. McEntire will be sworn in Dec. 30. “Giving the voters an opportunity to make a choice was the right thing to do,” Tharinger said. “But it is hard for me to leave this level of government.”
State Rep. and outgoing Clallam County Commissioner Steve Tharinger, left, and his wife, Yvonne Yokota, share a moment of levity with former County Commissoner Phil Kitchell during a reception for Tharinger on Tuesday in the public meeting room of the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles.
Fellow commissioners Tharinger became emotional when thanking Commissioners Mike Doherty and Mike Chapman. “With these two commissioners, it’s been wonderful,” he said. The current Board of Clallam County Commissioners has been intact since Chapman took office in 2001. “My life’s better for having worked with Steve for 11 years,” Chapman said. “I’ve learned a lot from him. I have great respect for his ethics, his integrity, his work ethic. “You may disagree with him. You may agree with him. Lord knows, I’ve done both on multiple issues.”
KEITH THORPE (2)/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Chapman presented Tharinger with a photograph of he and Doherty shaving their heads in a show of solidarity. Close to a dozen North Olympic Peninsula political leaders stood to thank Tharinger at the reception. The list included state Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim, Port Angeles City Manager Kent Myers and Jamestown S’Klallam Chairman Ron Allen.
‘Provided the leadership’ Battle with cancer Chapman and Doherty said their colleague’s battle with lymphoma cancer in 2004 and 2005 stood out. Doherty recalled visiting Tharinger when he was undergoing chemotherapy in Seattle. The conversation usually revolved around county government. “He had to keep working on public policy,” Doherty said. “His heart was really in that.”
“What’s really been good about Steve and the rest of the commissioners is they’ve provided the leadership to find common ground,” Allen said. Van De Wege said his colleague in the state House of Representatives “has proven to be a great problem solver and a great ally.” Chapman said Tharinger can’t be replaced. “We watched Steve battle cancer,” Chapman said.
“We watched him go through three elections. We watched him run and serve in the state House concurrently. “I’ve been most impressed with your commitment, your work ethic, your steadfastness.” Doherty said Tharinger stood out as a leader at the local and state level in issues such as natural resources, conservation and restoration, tribal relations, chemical dependency and mental health treatment and planning. Tharinger and his wife, Yokota, have lived in the Dungeness area for the past 30 years. Tharinger, right, holds a drawing of the Clallam
County Courthouse presented to him by County Administrator Jim Jones on behalf of the county “I’d like to thank the during Tuesday’s reception.
team, who provided consistent leadership to the county, focusing on what we perceived to be the best interests of the citizens of Clallam County over the long term, as opposed to a partisan political agenda or
narrow special interests or short term gains,” Tharinger said. “We may not have always gotten it right, but I think we would agree that we never questioned each other’s integrity.
“In short, I think we trusted each other.”

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Many people are staying in during the holidays, celebrating Christmas with family and friends, but a few events are going on this weekend on the North Olympic Peninsula. For more about arts and entertainment events, see Peninsula Spotlight, the Peninsula Daily News’ weekly entertainment guide in this edition. Other weekend events are in the “Things to Do” calendar, available online at www. peninsuladailynews.com. Here are some of this weekend’s other highlights:
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
The North Olympic Peninsula is ablaze for the holidays. From Forks to Port Angeles to Sequim, Blyn and East Jefferson County, residents and business owners have dressed up their homes and headquarters with colorful whimsy and hundreds if not thousands of lights. This Christmas weekend, families can bundle into the car and take a drive to see the sights. In Port Angeles, they can leave the driving to All Points Charters and Tours, which offers a nightly two-hour tour of Christmas lights every evening through Dec. 30, except Christmas Day, with two such tours on Christmas Eve. Tours begin from the Safeway parking lot at Third and Lincoln streets. They begin at 7 p.m. each evening except Christmas Eve, when tours will begin at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The two tours on Christmas Eve are “because of the luminaries on Second Street between Ennis and Chambers streets,” said Willie Nelson, tour operator. The whole neighborhood lines three blocks with luminaries, paper bags with candles inside. “It’s beautiful,” Nelson said. A highlight of the tour is Kent and Kari Osterberg’s home at 1521 O St. “They have a huge yard and an incredible light show, zillions of lights,” Nelson said. The tour bus stops here, in the circular drive, and people get out to stretch their legs and partake of hot spiced cider, hot cocoa and cookies.
Port Angeles CHRIS TUCKER/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Red, green, yellow and white Christmas lights brighten the yard and home of Kent and Kari Osterberg’s home at 1521 O St. in Port Angeles just after sunset on Wednesday. Other highlights on the tour are a fantastically decorated home on Chambers Street between Seventh and Eighth, neighborhood displays on Ninth Street between A and B streets and the home of Ron Bradshaw, Peninsula Daily News building manager, at 12th and K streets, Nelson said. But the biggest draw for those who take the tour are the surprises. “There are places we go to that no one would ever see,” Nelson said. He’s found imaginative and impressive displays in cul-de-sacs and other out-of the-way places. “One that’s really cute that I do is at the end of an alley. You’d never know it was there,” he said. “People always remark about,
‘How did you find these places?’” It’s his sixth year of conducting tours, and this year, the light show is tremendous, he added. “There are so many lights out there this year that I find it hard to get my tour done in two hours,” Nelson said. Fares are $7.50 for adults, $3.75 for children 6 to 12 and free for children younger than 6. “For some, it’s a tradition,” Nelson said. “I have some families who always do Christmas Eve. It’s nice to be a part of people’s Christmas experience.” Reservations may be made by phoning 360-460-7131.

Just north across Washington Street is the city Christmas tree in multicolored lights. Nearby merchants participate with their own light shows.
Blyn The biggest light show on the Peninsula is the glitter and glow of some 1.5 million holiday lights along both sides of U.S. Highway 101 at Blyn. The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe has covered the 7 Cedars Casino and tribal offices in electric brilliance as a “give-back to the community,” said Jerry Allen, casino general manager. The best way to view the lights is to pull over at the tribe’s Blyn rest stop on Highway 101 between Sequim and Port Townsend and walk around. Visitors can also turn off 101 onto Old Blyn Highway fronting the tribal center, park at the visitor parking lot and walk around the area. Take the walking tunnel under 101 to the east side where a walking trail allows viewing of the lights from different vantage points, with Sequim Bay as a back drop. Jamestown S’Klallam Chairman Ron Allen has publicly called the lights the tribe’s holiday gift to the community. TURN
Art Is a Gift PORT ANGELES — The annual show and sale known as Art Is a Gift, which serves as both a showcase for Pacific Northwest artists and as a fundraiser for the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, continues this weekend. The sale is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday through Dec. 30 in an upstairs room at The Landing, which sits at the intersection of Lincoln Street and Railroad Avenue on the Port Angeles waterfront. The sale is in this new location thanks to The Landing owner Paul Cronauer, who donated the space. It benefits the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., which is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a “silver milestone.” Admission is free to the center, which is likewise open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. For more details about downtown’s Art Is a Gift as well as the activities at the arts center itself, visit www.PAFAC. org or phone 360-457-3532.
Harp recital PORT ANGELES — Elizabeth Morgan-Ellis will be joined by her family and friends in a recital featuring the harp Monday. The recital will be at 2 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 510 E. Park Ave. The program will include: Tournier’s “Sonatine,” Spohr’s “Fantasie,” two sonatas by Scarlatti, two of Samuel Barber’s Hermit Songs and a Debussy trio for harp, flute and viola.

Lavender Growers donate to Sequim Community Aid, high school scholarship PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — The Sequim Lavender Growers Association wrapped up its 2011 Charity Through Commerce campaign during its annual holiday bazaar and poster art gallery display held recently. Patrons of the bazaar and art show contributed to Sequim Community Aid and a Sequim High School scholarship award through a raffle drawing for lavender-themed gifts, a deco-
rated Christmas tree, a custom-sewn quilt and sales proceeds from dessert items. “The growers association has been active participants for many years in helping its neighbors, acknowledging that without community support and patronage, the lavender industry in this part of the world would not be as famous and successful that it is,” said Susan Olson, president of the group.
During 2011, in addition to Sequim Community Aid and a Sequim High School scholarship, the growers association provided monetary donations, in-kind support or free booth space at the 15th Sequim Lavender Festival to the following groups or organizations: Sarge’s Place, a homeless veterans support group located in Forks; the Peninsula Chapter of the American Red Cross; the Sequim Boys & Girls Club; Sequim
High School FFA; the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” campaign in Port Townsend to address domestic violence; Port Angeles Rotary; Audubon Society; Lions Club Eye Bank fund; Peninsula Dream Machines car club for additional Boys & Girls Club support; and the Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club, which provides one-of-akind custom-made quilts for scholarship fundraising.

Tickets are $55 per person or $50 for members of the PTMSC, Burke Museum or the Audubon or the Washington Ornithological societies. Proceeds help to fund PTMSC programs.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Let God’s light brighten darkness, season THE DAYS HAVE been growing shorter and darker, and even when the sun does shine, it generates so little heat it feels as if it has deserted the world. During this darkest time of the year, mankind has always sought ways to bring light into life, either with fire, from the joy of loved ones or through the light of kindness and generosity to others. Our celebrations during this time, no matter what tradition, involve both physical and spiritual light. Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, always falls during the very darkest moment in the year because it comes during the dark of the moon closest to the winter solstice. Sometimes this may occur in early December, depending on the lunar cycle.
Light is a metaphor for the divine. In Genesis, the creation It story teaches us that the Suzanna can’t be world was created by setDeBey the dark- ting apart light from darkest time ness.

shattered, sending holy sparks throughout the universe, imbuing everything with a spark of the divine. (Science calls this the Big Bang, and the Kabbalists spoke of it in the 13th century!) These divine sparks are in all the material world, and the mystics say it is our job to liberate them so as to bring back the “hidden light,” ha-ganuz, the light of creation. The Kabbalah teaches us that every action, no matter how small, has the possibility of liberating these sparks. As we light the Hanukkah menorah, we are encouraged to sit in darkness and gaze at the flames, allowing our bodies and minds to relax and reflect on how we can illuminate the world with our actions. As the light of the can-
dles increases, we should dedicate ourselves to easing the darkness and suffering of others. Hanukkah actually means dedication, so each time we bring light to another, no matter how small or trivial our attempt might seem, we release more of the holy sparks, thus bringing us closer to a world filled with brilliance of God’s light. As you enjoy the lights in our community that seem to burst forth in every direction, illuminating these long dark nights, think of the hope and joy they represent. We humans seem always determined to defeat the darkness with beautiful brilliance. Now let us take that same resolve to bring light and comfort to those who
feel lost and alone. Helen Keller understood this when she said, “There is no lovelier way to thank God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to someone in the dark.” The Talmud teaches us, “The candle you light will give light to a hundred.” So light a candle, bring brightness to others, spread love and joy wherever possible. Allow God’s light to shine through during this most beautiful season, and in so doing, it will once again envelop creation. Kein yehi ratzon. May it be God’s will. Shalom.

Best Buy can’t fill some online orders
Americans tired of constipation on Capitol Hill BY TAMMY WEBBER
ATLANTA — Best Buy has alerted some customers that it will not be able to fill their online orders, just days before Christmas. The largest U.S. specialty electronics retailer said late Wednesday that “overwhelming demand for some products from Bestbuy.com has led to a problem redeeming online orders made in November and December.” The Minneapolis company declined Thursday to specify how many orders are affected or which products are out of stock. The shortages are a black eye for Best Buy, which has beefed up its online campaign to fight off intense competition from online retailers and discount stores. The holiday season is crucial for retailers because it can make up to 40 percent of annual sales.

Wal-Mart pulls infant formula, tests done after infant dies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Wal-Mart and health officials awaited tests Thursday on a batch of powdered infant formula that was removed from more than 3,000 stores nationwide after a Missouri newborn who consumed it died from a rare infection. The bacteria in question occur naturally in the environment and in plants such as wheat and rice. But the most worrisome appearances have been in dried milk and powdered formula, which is why manufacturers routinely test for the pathogens. Wal-Mart pulled the Enfamil Newborn formula from shelves as a precaution following the death of little Avery Cornett in the southern Missouri town of Lebanon. The government has not ordered a recall, and the manufacturer said tests showed the batch was negative for the bacteria before it was shipped. Additional tests were under way. It could be several days before test results are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-

Avery Cornett of Lebanon, Mo., died Sunday from an apparent bacterial infection. This picture was provided by Holman Howe Funeral Home. vention and the Food and Drug Administration. “We decided it was best to remove the product until we learn more,” Wal-Mart spokeswoman Dianna Gee said. “It could be returned to the shelves.” Customers who bought
formula in 12.5-ounce cans with the lot number ZP1K7G have the option of returning them for a refund or exchange, Gee said. The product is not exclusive to Wal-Mart. The manufacturer, Mead Johnson Nutrition, did not immediately say how widely distributed the formula was among other stores. “We’re highly confident in the safety and quality of our products,” said Christopher Perille, a spokesman for the company based in the Chicago suburb of Glenview. A second Missouri infant fell ill after consuming powdered baby formula in the last month, but that child recovered, state health officials said. Powdered infant formula is not sterile, and experts have said there are not adequate methods to completely remove or kill all bacteria that might creep into formula before or during production. Preliminary hospital test results indicate that Avery died of a rare infection caused by Cronobacter sakazakii. The infection can be treated with antibiotics, but
it’s deemed extremely dangerous to babies less than 1 month old and those born premature. The virus “is pervasive in the environment,” Perille said. “There’s a whole range of potential sources on how this infection may have got started.” Public health investigators will look at the formula itself, as well as the water used in preparing it and at anything else the baby might have ingested, Perille said. Such illnesses are rare. Only two to three cases a year are reported in infants worldwide. New Mexico saw two in 2008, including one infant who died and another who suffered severe brain damage. A Tennessee infant died in 2001 after being infected. Avery was taken to a pediatrician Dec. 15 — a week after he was born — after showing signs of stomach pain and lethargy. When the pain persisted the next day, his parents took him to an emergency room. He died Sunday at a hospital in Springfield after being removed from life support.

RICHMOND, Va. — Amazon.com Inc. plans to invest about $270 million to open multiple distribution centers in Virginia and Tennessee, altogether creating about 2,650 jobs, state officials and the online retailer said Thursday. The new fulfillment centers, expected to be completed next fall, are part of the Seattle-based company’s plan to support its growth and ensure that it can keep up as it sells more of everything from stuffed animals to power tools. In October, Amazon said it was building 17 new fulfillment centers, adding to the 52 it had at the end of last year. In Virginia, Gov. Bob McDonnell said the company will invest $135 million for two Virginia facilities in Chesterfield and Dinwiddie counties that will employ 1,350 people. Amazon said it plans to open two
new distribution centers in Tennessee, creating more than 1,300 jobs and $135 million in investments. That’s in addition to two existing facilities in Tennessee. Thursday’s announcement follows an agreement between Amazon and Tennessee over the collection of sales taxes in which the company would start collecting Tennessee sales taxes in 2014. Amazon has been at odds with several states over Internet sales tax collection as cash-strapped state governments grapple with how to capture the sales tax revenues that go uncollected from online purchases. In some cases, the online retailer severed ties with affiliates in states that are attempting to collect sales tax. That’s not the case in Virginia, where tax laws won’t currently require Amazon to pay sales taxes to

Jefferson Clemente Course scheduled in early January PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The Jefferson Clemente Foundation will begin the 11th Jefferson County Clemente Course on Jan. 3 in the newly remodeled Pink House at the Port Townsend Library. The foundation was founded in New York City in 1996 to offer accredited college humanities courses to low-income students who might not otherwise be able to attend college. The goal is to serve as a bridge to college and to encourage students to become more engaged in their communities. The course is offered around the world. All tuition, books, child care and transportation are
provided to qualified students as needed. Successful students earn transferable credits from Bard College. Jefferson County classes meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings from January to mid-June. â€œOur classes are challenging and supportive,â€? said Lela Hilton, academic director.
â€˜No grades or testsâ€™ â€œThere are no grades or tests. Our focus is to engage students in some of the important ideas that are the foundation of our culture. â€œWe look at art, read and watch plays, and discuss history and philosophy based on the original writ-
ing.â€? Hilton said. â€œItâ€™s always very exciting for students as well as for our faculty because each year, students bring new life experience to the classroom, so we learn almost as much from each other as we do from the books weâ€™re reading. â€œMost of our students find that education is something that they value more than they knew, and they begin planning to go on to college after Clemente,â€? Hilton said. For more information or to get an application for the 2012 course, phone Hilton at 360-732-0007, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit jeffersonclemente. wordpress.com.

PA’s Roosevelt students show holiday spirit Children, staff gather items for needy families PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Roosevelt Elementary students, staff and families were busy gathering donations for their Food, Clothing and Book Drive during this holiday season. Through friendly competition, three teams — blue, red and green — students and staff gathered 8,617 items including clothing, books, food and cash donations for Roosevelt families in need.
After school, volunteers sorted boxes of food in preparation for distribution to families. In addition to a full box of food, 68 Roosevelt families are receiving a $20 Safeway gift card, a turkey, bag of potatoes and cereal from Safeway. Each family also chooses books, toiletries and clothing from the donations. The project was possible “because of our wonderful Roosevelt families” and “also several community members [who] graciously donated money to help buy the turkey and other fresh PORT ANGELES SCHOOL DISTRICT foods for the baskets,” said Roosevelt teacher Kristen Roosevelt Elementary School first-graders in Kristen Lunt’s classroom surround a “sleigh of coats,” donations from the school’s holiday Food, Clothing and Book Drive.

Roger served in the Air Force for four years and was honorably discharged. During most of his working life, he worked as an architectural draftsman. A regular visitor to the Port Angeles Library, Roger never tired of learning and was fascinated by countless subjects, including archeology, astronomy, geology, music, architecture, fashion, history and more. He kept up with current and local events by reading the daily newspaper. As a member of the Port Angeles Senior Center, Roger enjoyed the warm meals provided at the center and interacted with fellow seniors during those visits.
gardener — his photo on the back wall at the Joyce General Store has his name and the words: “Roses . . . roses . . . roses” — a perfect memorial for his love of roses and all flowers. From the time he moved to Joyce, he worked to landscape his property. After decades of work, he succeeded in creating an oasis of rhododendrons, butterfly bush, heather, begonias, dianthus, digitalis and his much-loved roses, among dozens of other types of plants. Roger Nielsen Spencer would have turned 73 years old this November 14th. In one of his journal entries, he wrote that he regretted that he had not planted more azaleas. If anyone knowing Roger would like to somehow honor him, please plant and care for a rose, an azalea or something else that he would have loved.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Friday/Saturday, December 23-24, 2010
Pulling a Tebow in name of rain STEELHEADERS ARE WELL known for their complaints. Rarely, however, does it have Matt anything to do Schubert with a lack of rain. But for whatever reason — I’ll blame El Niño’s belligerent uncle El Tio — that’s where we find ourselves as the sparkly specter of Christmas looms. Nearly all of the West End rivers are low and clear, and the steelhead are growing understandably wary of the camouflaged kooks scattered across river banks. “The word is that everything is coming to a screeching halt,” Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles said. “Everything is getting low and clear. “We’re getting to the point now where we just flat need the rain.” Yes, I think it’s safe to say this has been a bit of an odd season so far. August is usually the time when river anglers find themselves looking to the heavens in hopes of some wet stuff. Now they find themselves in the same untenable Tebow position as rivers continue to dry up out west. “The Hoh has still be the best place. Everything else is super low and clear,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-6831950) in Sequim. “It’s like August levels basically.” Thankfully, there is some rain at the end of that tunnel. The long-term forecast predicts a fair amount of precipitation coming to the area in the near future. If such is the case, expect hordes of anglers to hit the Bogachiel and Calawah one final time before the hatchery run does its typical January decline. The Bogachiel Hatchery reported only 96 additional adult steelhead reaching its traps this week, putting the season total at 641. Those desperate to go after some steelhead can still go out to the Hoh, which has easily been the most productive river so far this steelhead season. One might think about tying on a bobber and jig setup and heading to some slow-moving water. “Float-and-jig guys should be able to clean up,” Menkal said. “Go down to a 1/16 ounce jig and use your small floats like you do in the summertime. “Any run will be good in the slower pools. That would be the ideal way to fish.” Menkal will once again host a twosession steelhead fishing class this coming Tuesday and the next. The class is free to attend and will go from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. both nights at the Sequim shop, 542 W. Washington St. To sign up, contact Menkal at 360683-1950.
Ridge update Relax, my dear Peninsulites, the snow will come. It does every year at one point or another. This year just happens to be a wee bit late. As of Thursday afternoon, the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center website reported 30 inches of snow atop Hurricane Ridge. A look at Olympic National Park’s webcams, however, revealed a patchy snowpack that likely needs another two or three feet of powder. “Obviously [mountain manager] Craig Hofer is on the job. He is there ready to go as soon as we get enough snow,” Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club President Lori Lynn Gray said. “We’ll get some snow, we just have to be patient and wait for it.” The rope has already been set up and strung for the bunny hill.

PA holds on to Axe Riders defend title of own tournament BY BRAD LABRIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The Axe stays in Port Angeles. The Roughrider wrestling team made history by winning its own tournament, Olympic Shootout: “The Battle for the Axe,” for the second straight year Wednesday. Port Angeles is the only team
to win the team trophy in back to back seasons during the event’s seven-year history. It is the third time overall that the Riders will keep the Axe in its own gym. And this year’s win was a little sweeter than normal, because the Riders had to go through archrival Sequim to get it. The two North Olympic Peninsula rivals won their pool divi-
sions and met for the team championship in dual-meet format. The Riders surged to a 32-9 lead over the Wolves, then withstood losing three pins in a row to eventually come out on top 50-24. “It feels great to win the tournament again and keep the Axe here,” Port Angeles coach Erik Gonzalez said. Wrestling Sequim for the championship was a dream come true for Gonzalez. “This is why I created our tournament in 2005,” he said. “I wanted it to have our local feel to it, our local history [between teams on the Peninsula].”
ALSO . . . ■ Complete team results at Olympic Shootout/B10
Even though the Riders are on the top of the world this holiday weekend after capturing the Axe for the second straight year and defeating archrival Sequim, there still is much improvement needed. “We’re feeling pretty good about ourselves but we need to improve,” Gonzalez said. “It’s all a learning experienced. Ultimately, we need to keep improving and aim for the [end of season] February tournaments.” TURN

Clash of clones? Seahawks, 49ers bring similar styles to matchup THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll may not always get along — see USC vs. Stanford — or find much the polarizing coaches can agree on. But look at why San Francisco has the second-best record in the NFC and Seattle is making a late surge for an unlikely playoff berth and it’s apparent the 49ers and
Seahawks are finding their success in similar ways. They’re bucking the NFL’s passhappy trend and relying on being run-first teams, asking their quarterbacks not to do too much and playing stingy, stout defense. “Regardless of how other people want to do it — there’s a million ways to do it — but this is a way to do it that I particularly like the

DEMING — Cutter Grahn remained perfect on the season after winning his second tournament title this winter at the Mount Baker Gus Compton Invitational on Wednesday. The three-time state participant went 4-0 in the 132pound division to lead the Forks wrestling team to a sixth-place finish at the 16-team event. Forks was one of just two Class 1A schools in the tournament, with the rest being 2A and above, but still managed to place five wrestlers. “[Grahn] dominated the kid in the finals,” Forks coach Bob Wheeler said of Grahn, who is now 12-0. Grahn was one of two Forks wrestlers to reach the finals, with Joel Ward getting to the 220-pound championship after winning three straight matches. The sophomore had to settle for second, however, after losing a major decision to Sultan’s Taylor Comfort. “He’s a good, solid sophomore. He did quite well today,” Wheeler said of Ward. TURN

Hawks: Ground and pound time CONTINUED FROM B1 With Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch at the forefront, the 49ers travel north to play Seattle on Saturday in an NFC West matchup thick with playoff implications for both sides. San Francisco is postseason bound for the first time since 2002, having locked up the division weeks ago. They are currently in line for the No. 2 seed and a potential first-round playoff bye, but any slip could open the chance of being passed by New Orleans for that coveted first weekend off. Meanwhile, Seattle (7-7) has won five of six to get back to .500, but needs plenty of help to complete its second-half charge and reach the postseason for a second straight season. Foremost is Seattle must win its final two games and see either Atlanta or Detroit drop its final two games to even have a hope. “Some things got to happen for us to get to the playoffs. If that happen it happens, if it don’t, it don’t,” Lynch said.
“I’m just proud to see the turnaround that we had, especially with all these young guys and pieces that we’ve had.” At a time when passing is dominant in the NFL, the Seahawks and 49ers are taking an old school approach. For San Francisco, it started immediately, in the opening week when the Niners beat Seattle 33-17 thanks to two late kick returns for touchdowns by Ted Ginn, Jr. — one on a kickoff, one on a punt. That victory set the 49ers on course for a division title that’s featured a lot of Gore, who has 1,119 yards rushing in his fifth 1,000-yard season, and the most solid season of quarterback Alex Smith’s career. Not asked to be the key to winning games, and rather be an intelligent operator of the offense, Smith has led the 49ers with efficiency, not explosiveness. He’s thrown just five interceptions, fewest in the NFC, and his passer rating of 91.1 is on pace to be a career high.
Last Monday against Pittsburgh, Smith rebounded from arguably his worst performance of the season at Arizona to throw for a steady 187 yards and a touchdown in the win. He’s getting pushed for the Pro Bowl by Harbaugh and others, although Smith brushed off that talk this week. “It’s hard when you’re still in the thick of it. That’s probably a better question to ask me at the end of the season whenever everything’s wrapped up. Right now there’s still a lot on the line,” Smith said. It’s certainly made life easier for Smith, Gore and the rest of San Francisco’s offense that the defense is among the best in the NFL. The Niners lead the league in rushing defense, points against and, most critical, turnovers. The 49ers are the first team in NFL history to not allow a touchdown rushing in the first 14 games, a statistic that astounds just about everyone. They haven’t allowed a 100-yard rusher in 36 games.
“As long as we win, it doesn’t matter to me if we have a running touchdown or not,” Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said. That streak of holding opponents out of the end zone while running will get one of its toughest tests on Saturday thanks to the resurgence of Lynch. Seattle’s change didn’t take hold until midseason, when gimmicks were abandoned and the Seahawks put their season on Lynch’s legs. He’s responded with the finest stretch of his career, having scored touchdowns in 10 straight games played — minus the one week he sat out due to back spasms. He’s become Seattle’s first 1,000-yard back since Shaun Alexander’s MVP season of 2005 and given the Seahawks an image and identity they struggled to find through Carroll’s first 1½ seasons back in the NFL. “He’s running extremely hard.

SEATTLE — In its first two seasons making the transition back to Division I, Seattle made headlines with wins over Oregon State and Virginia. The Redhawks almost added the Cavaliers to the list again Wednesday night, this time as a ranked team, only to fall short in the closing moments. Aaron Broussard scored a career-high 29 points and Sterling Carter added 17, but Seattle couldn’t complete its rally from 14 points down in the final 8 minutes, and No. 24 Virginia held on for an 83-77 victory. Tired of underperforming for the first month of the season, Seattle finally found life and energy for more than just a few spurts. The result was Seattle’s best effort of the season, but still not enough to knock off a ranked team for the first time during its move back to the top level of college hoops. “It’s good to have energy and enthusiasm and have a display like this as you’re doing it, because it helps you keep going and gives you a little more buzz to keep going,” Seattle coach Cameron Dollar said. Mike Scott scored a career-high 33 points, including 19 in the first half, as the Cavaliers (10-1) won their eighth straight and improved to 10-1 for the first time since 2000-01. They also avenged a shocking 59-53 home loss to Seattle last season. Meanwhile, the Redhawks dropped their sixth straight, but at least left with an idea of how they want to play going forward. “We were going to go out give our all attitude. I don’t feel like we had that at the beginning of the year,” Carter said.

“It wasn’t purposely, it’s just that time where we feel like we’re a better team than we’ve been showing.” Virginia was on its way to an easy victory after Seattle missed eight of its first nine shots to begin the second half. Scott’s three-point play pulled the Cavaliers within 43-42 and Chelan- native Joe Harris gave Virginia its first lead on a baseline leaner with 15:12 remaining. The Cavaliers’ lead continued to grow until Dollar finally snapped with 8:45 left when he walked out to midcourt yelling about Scott’s rebound putback while being fouled and was quickly issued a technical foul. Scott converted one of the two free throws for the technical, then completed the three-point play to give Virginia a 14-point lead with 8:45 remaining. The technical woke up the Redhawks and instead of Virginia coasting to an easy road win they started crumbling under Seattle’s pressure. Using an aggressive, trapping defense, Seattle scored 19 of the next 23 points following Dollar’s technical, the only Virginia points coming on free throws from Harris and Malcolm Brogdon. Seattle went ahead at one point 68-67 on a Broussard leaner before Virginia took the lead right back on the next possession with a 3-pointer from Sammy Zeglinski. The Redhawks had a chance to tie things up as late as 40 seconds left in the game, but T.J. Diop missed an open 3. “You’ve got to be able to handle adversity. We didn’t do a great job with it but there is a point as a coach where you try and say ‘We’ve got to get some stops, we’ve got to take care of the ball, we’ve got to come together’ and either it’s going to happen or it’s not,” Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. Harris finished with 14 points and Brogdon added 10 for the Cavaliers.

DEAR ABBY: After 19 years of marriage, my husband left me for a younger woman. I found out later that they had been dating for several years. They moved in together immediately after our separation, and she was pregnant at the divorce hearing. They had a baby boy eight months later. At every event with my kids, they come together with their son, and she steers the conversation to her life, what’s going on, etc. I have tried to be silent and civil, but she ruined my daughter’s high school graduation by gossiping and giggling behind me and the kids the entire event.

PT author gives reading of memoir of fisherman’s life BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ
True tales of the fisherman’s life are told in Along the Corkline, Gary Keister’s new book. Keister will give a free reading Thursday at Port Townsend’s Max Grover Gallery.
PORT TOWNSEND — Stories of life as a commercial fisherman in Alaska and the Puget Sound fill Along the Corkline, a new memoir from local writer Gary Keister. Corkline is the first book from Keister, who grew up in Anacortes at a time when salmon fishing in the sound was at its peak. He’ll give a free reading of the self-published work at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Max Grover Gallery, 630 Water St. Keister was just 8 years old when his father died — but another man stepped forward to help bring him up.

“My mother had the foresight to encourage strong male role models in my life, beginning with my grandfather, a skipper, fisherman, and the best grandfather a boy could have.” Keister first went to sea as a young cabin boy, sleeping in a bunk the crew built over a workbench on the fishing vessel Veribus.

Wooden-boat documentary now on DVD at Northwest Maritime Center BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT
PORT TOWNSEND — “Charlotte: A Wooden Boat Story,” a documentary first screened at this past September’s Wooden Boat Festival, is now available on DVD at the Chandlery inside the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St. “The Wooden Boat Chandlery has been chosen as the venue for releasing the DVD to the public,” said Chandlery manager Molly Klupfell. “Charlotte” tells the true tale of building a 50-foot schooner at the Gannon & Benjamin Marine Railway, a boatyard on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
East Coast boatyard In this picture, filmmaker Jeffrey KusamaHinte follows everyday activities at the 21-year-old yard, which was established to design, build and care for traditional wooden boats. “Charlotte” also features an appearance by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, a Gannon & Benjamin client who comes to the builders with a boating problem. “The film captures the

heart and soul of tradition, craftsmanship, family, community and the love of the sea,” Klupfell notes in the Chandlery’s announcement of the DVD release.
Captures spirit So the movie is about boat-building — and about adventure, patience and joy, she writes. And since its premiere this year, wooden boat enthusiasts have been singing its praises. “If you care even a little about [the craft of boat-
building], you cannot be unmoved by the portrait this lovely film paints,” wrote Jon Wilson, founder of Wooden Boat magazine. The DVD of “Charlotte” sells for $24.95 at the Chandlery.

Gathering songs out of the ether Musicians weave talents into CornStalks her notebook with her everywhere — except the shower, where “Enjoy the Journey” revealed itself one day. “I heard the melody and the words, all at once,” Trenerry said. She dried off and grabbed her guitar. For her 46th birthday last month, Trenerry’s husband gave her a small digital recorder, so she could sing — and compose — wherever she might be. It has been a prolific season, as she’s written gospel songs including “If I Cross Over,” about a family member’s passing, and “The Valley and the Hill,” about how music can change a person. Another new song Trenerry sings with the CornStalks is “Everything You Need.” It came out of a drawer, a special drawer filled with lyrics Trenerry and Mogi have written over the years. “Jason said, ‘Anything that’s in that drawer, you can have,’” so Trenerry helped herself. The CornStalks’ repertoire is leavened too by gospel songs that suit Doenges’ vocal range. “Stephanie has the perfect voice for that [genre],” Trenerry said. Then there are the Dylan songs, from “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” and “Tangled Up in Blue” to “Gotta Serve Somebody” done in the band’s own style. Dylan looms large among the CornStalks. Doenges saw him perform at The Gorge Amphitheater back when she was 15 — and managed to catch the egg-shaped percussion instrument he tossed to her.
The CornStalks, seen here during their debut performance Oct. 29 at the Vern Burton Community Center in Port Angeles, are Kim Trenerry, left, Stephanie Doenges and Paul Stehr-Green. When she had a baby boy two years ago, she named him, you guessed it, Dylan. Doenges, who was Stephanie Batson before she married Jess Doenges in September, is known to many as the singer with Rollin’ Waters. That group disbanded a few years ago, and Doenges took time off from performing after Dylan was born. She’s reveling now in her new outfit. Doenges was a teenager when she first heard Trenerry sing with Tongue and Groove and has looked up to her since. “She’s our force. I love working with her,” said Doenges, who plays harmonica in addition to singing. “This is the first time in my life I have made music with somebody and felt this amazing connection.” Stehr-Green, meanwhile, knits the group together with his bass lines — and with some of his own vocals. “When they let me sing the occasional lead, I have the two best backup singers ever,” he said. “Not only am I learning and playing music with
which I have no previous experience — for example, gospel — but I’m also learning to develop and use a new instrument: my voice.” The CornStalks have at least one more influence worth noting: Trenerry’s sister Tiffany Doetsch Branson. She just married a man from Iowa and moved to that corn-rich state, so Trenerry and Mogi got to talking about things like corn bread and corn fields. One thing led to another. The CornStalks already
have gigs booked into the new year: at the Port Angeles Library’s Art Blast on Jan. 13 and at the Junction Roadhouse at the intersection of U.S. Highway 101 and state Highway 112 on Feb. 18. More details await at Trenerry and Mogi’s website, www.Deadwood Revival.com. Trenerry, Doenges and Stehr-Green hope to build a following, naturally, and they already have a name for this fan base, thought up by a friend: the CornStalkers.

Moving music of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ bridges holiday gap BY DIANE URBANI
hen anticipating Handel with Care, Wednesday’s annual sing-along of Handel’s “Messiah,” the orchestrator doesn’t talk about the sound. Instead, Shirley Anderson talks about the feeling she has while surrounded — surrounded by sopranos, tenors, basses and altos who are her neighbors. “It feels terrific,” says Anderson, who organized the first Handel with Care some 12 years ago as a benefit for Sequim Community Aid. The singalong “Messiah” is still a fundraiser for the organization, which helps local families and individuals with basic living expenses, such as winter heating bills.
Singers and listeners alike are invited to Handel with Care, this Wednesday night’s sing-along of Handel’s “Messiah” at Trinity United Methodist Church in Sequim. George F. Handel’s music is scheduled to warm the Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Admission, as always, is by

This is a singalong for everyone — singer, listener, beginner, veteran — added Dewey Ehling, who has conducted it for seven years now. “We give scores to anybody who comes in, so they have the words in front of them whether they know the music or not,” he said.
Ehling encourages newcomers to observe, listen and “as they feel comfortable, go ahead and join in.
Fevered spirit “I think they will get caught up in the spirit of it,” he added. “It is contagious.” For each December’s Handel with Care, Ehling and a committee of musicians choose a set of selections from “The Messiah,” since singing all 52 songs in it would take about three hours. TURN

If you could ask God one question what would you ask? Fairview Bible Church is offering an opportunity to explore the Christian Faith Sundays from 5 pm - 7:30 pm starting January 8th.
Traditional Dessert Table:
On an Alpha course, guests explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over ten thoughtprovoking weekly sessions and a weekend retreat. Each night guests will enjoy a meal and a talk on subjects as diverse as â€œWho is Jesusâ€?, â€œHow Can I Have Faith?â€? and â€œHow Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?â€? No question is too simple or too complex and participation is as involved as you make it. Our goal is to simply offer others an opportunity to make up their own minds about the teaching of Jesus.
