Food, music, fellowship at community Thanksgiving By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News
CHIMACUM — The Tri-Area Community Thanksgiving dinner drew an estimated 225 people Thursday, filling the community center hall with a large group of happy, hungry people. Organizer Chris Eagan said that about 70 volunteers helped to serve the meal, which included 60 pounds of turkey, 40 pounds of ham and plenty of stuffing, potatoes and all the other fixings. Eagan said that 97 meals were delivered to people who could not make it to the community center. “I think that Thanksgiving is more important that Christmas,” said Nan Toby Tyrell, who has played piano at the dinner every year since arriving in the area in 1991. “Thanksgiving isn’t materialistic. It’s not about who is rich or poor, but it nurtures souls and stomachs.”
She said she enjoyed playing piano for this group because “music raises spirits.” Caroline Atkins of Marrowstone Island has attended the dinner for several years with her family and has always wanted to volunteer.
Job taken very seriously Now that she is old enough — she turned 11 this year — she took her job very seriously as she cleared plates and poured drinks. “She is finally at an age of responsibility,” said her mother, Rebecca Atkins. “She has wanted to do this for a long time.” Midway into the dinner, Pane D’Amour owner Linda Yakush arrived and donated several bags of bread she was unable to sell because of chilly, slushy weather.

Filing against Nippon plans due in spring
PORT TOWNSEND — A coalition of environmental groups has filed an appeal challenging a state permit that will allow the Port Townsend Paper Corp. mill to expand its biomass capacity. The five groups are among the seven that also oppose the Nippon Paper Industries USA Inc.’s biomass project in Port Angeles. The appeal filed Monday with the state Pollution Control Hearings Board is in response to the state Department of Ecology’s granting Oct. 25 of a “notice of construction” permit for the Port Townsend mill’s $55 million project and its July finding that the biomass project had no probable adverse environmental impact. “We feel that Ecology’s omission of a full environmental review was a negligent act,” said Gretchen Brewer, a member of PT AirWatchers, one of the plaintiffs. “Many of the people who responded during the comment period asked for that review, and Ecology ignored those wishes,” the Port Townsend resident said.
Other organizations Along with PT AirWatchers, the appeal was filed by No Biomass Burn of Seattle, World Temperate Rainforest Network, Olympic Environmental Council and Olympic Forest Coalition. Ecology’s October order allows the mill to move ahead with plans to install a steam turbine and upgrade its power boiler, after which time the boiler’s primary fuel source will be wood waste known as biomass or hog fuel.
An appeal of the environmental assessment of the Nippon Paper Industries USA Inc. biomass project is expected to be filed in the spring. The five groups that have filed an appeal with the state Pollution Control Hearings Board against the $55 million proposed Port Townsend cogeneration project, plan — along with the Center for Environmental Law and Policy of Spokane and the Cascade Chapter of the Sierra Club — to appeal Nippon’s $71 million biomass project, the coalition’s attorney, Toby Thaler, said. Thaler said the environmental assessment will be appealed to the hearing board after the Olympic Region Clean Air Agency approves air-quality permits for the project. Turn
As much as 24 megawatts of electricity would be produced for sale. “The Port Townsend Paper Biomass Cogeneration Project will provide 200,000 kilowatt hours per year of green alternative energy to the power grid,” the paper mill said in a statement available on its website at www. ptpc.com. “This is enough to support 15,500 homes annually,” the mill said.

Fest accidentally mirrors reality ‘Let It Snow’ theme feels a lot warmer indoors By Tom Callis
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The theme of this year’s Festival of Trees is “Let It Snow,” but Betsy Schultz insisted it was not prophetic. “I was not responsible for this early winter storm,” said the festival’s creative director, who came up with the theme. “But I’ll take credit for it if people think it looks pretty.” The theme was already on display inside — and outside — the
Vern Burton Community Center on Wednesday, with snowflake decorations hanging above teams of tree designers diligently working on their showcase, many hoping to finish them before Thanksgiving. The center at 308 E. Fourth St. is once again the host of the festival, in its 20th year, which will start today with the tree auction. The festival, an annual fundraising event for Olympic Medical Center Foundation and the Port Angeles Exchange Club, will run through Sunday. The 40 decorated trees will be auctioned off during tonight’s Festival of Trees Gala, which includes a gourmet buffet dinner and dance. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Turn

West, Kung Fu Panda star at NYC parade A HIGH-KICKING Kung Fu Panda and a diary-toting Wimpy Kid joined the giant balloon lineup as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade unfolded Thursday, drawing tens of thousands of spectators to the annual extravaganza on a chilly, overcast morning. As millions more watched the live broadcast on television, revelers gathered nationwide for other parades in cities such as Detroit, Chicago and Philadelphia. The Macy’s parade featured an eclectic lineup of entertainers including Kanye West, Gladys Knight and Colombian rocker Juanes. The Broadway casts of “American Idiot” and “Elf” performed, along with marching bands from across the United States. Santa Claus closed the parade as always.

Briefly: Nation Man faces two murder charges for wife’s death LOS ANGELES — An Alabama man who served prison time in Australia for his wife’s drowning death during their honeymoon returned Thursday to the U.S. where he faces murder charges that could carry a much stiffer punishment. Gabe Watson, 33, arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday morning after he was deported on a commercial flight from Melbourne, Watson Australia. Immigration Minister Chris Bowen said Watson was accompanied by two Immigration Department staff and three Queensland state police officers. Watson will likely make a court appearance in Los Angeles before being sent back to Alabama. Alabama hopes to arrange to bring Watson back to the state early next week, said Attorney General Troy King. King said Australian authorities showed too much leniency to Watson, who served an 18-month sentence in that country after pleading guilty last year to manslaughter. Tina Watson, 26, drowned in 2003 while scuba diving with her husband of 11 days.
NASA to lose funding? CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA’s effort to farm out astronauts’ space station trips to pri-

Spaceflight vendors stand to lose $1.2 billion in NASA funding in 2015 under a proposal by the co-chairmen of President Barack Obama’s bipartisan deficit commission. Eliminating federal funding for commercial rocket rides is just one of dozens of ideas put forth earlier this month. It was No. 24 on the list and, outside of space circles, was barely noticed, overshadowed by proposed cuts in Social Security benefits and a call for higher taxes.
Alaska Senate lawsuit ANCHORAGE, Alaska — U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski is arguing that Alaska will be harmed if she isn’t sworn in on time, calling for a rapid resolution to a lawsuit aimed at blocking certification of the election. The Republican incumbent, who mounted a write-in bid after losing the primary to Joe Miller, declared victory after the ballot count showed her with a 10,328-vote lead — a total that includes 8,159 ballots contested by Miller observers. Miller sued this week in Fairbanks Superior Court, claiming that election officials illegally accepted improperly marked write-in ballots that benefited Murkowski. Miller said a strict interpretation of state law bans any ballot that does not include a candidate’s name as it appears on a declaration of candidacy, or simply the last name of the candidate. Alaska election officials have accepted minor misspellings on write-in ballots. The Associated Press
Secondhand smoke kills 600,000 a year 40 percent of children breathe it in regularly, researchers say By Maria Cheng
The Associated Press
LONDON — Secondhand smoke kills more than 600,000 people worldwide every year, according to a new study. In the first look at the global impact of secondhand smoking, researchers analyzed data from 2004 for 192 countries. They found 40 percent of children and more than 30 percent of nonsmoking men and women regularly breathe in second-hand smoke. Scientists then estimated that passive smoking causes about 379,000 deaths from heart disease, 165,000 deaths from lower respiratory disease, 36,900 deaths from asthma and 21,400 deaths from lung cancer a year. Altogether, those account for about 1 percent of the world’s deaths. The study was paid for by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and Bloomberg Philanthropies. It was published today in the British medical journal Lancet.
“This helps us understand the real toll of tobacco,” said Armando Peruga, a program manager at the World Health Organization’s Tobacco-Free Initiative, who led the study. He said the approximately 603,000 deaths from secondhand smoking should be added to the 5.1 million deaths that smoking itself causes every year.
Infant death syndrome Peruga said WHO was particularly concerned about the 165,000 children who die of smoke-related respiratory infections, mostly in Southeast Asia and Africa. “The mix of infectious diseases and secondhand smoke is a deadly combination,” Peruga said. Children whose parents smoke have a higher risk of sudden infant death syndrome, ear infections, pneumonia, bronchitis and asthma. Their lungs may also grow more slowly than kids whose parents don’t smoke. Peruga and colleagues found
the highest numbers of people exposed to secondhand smoke are in Europe and Asia. The lowest rates of exposure were in the Americas, the Eastern Mediterranean and Africa. Secondhand smoke had its biggest impact on women, killing about 281,000. In many parts of the world, women are at least 50 percent more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke than men. While many Western countries have introduced smoking bans in public places, experts said it would be difficult to legislate further. “I don’t think it is likely we will see strong regulations reaching into homes,” said Heather Wipfli of the Institute for Global Health at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, who was not connected to the study. She said more public smoking bans and education might persuade people to quit smoking at home. In the U.K., the British Lung Foundation is petitioning the government to outlaw smoking in cars. Helena Shovelton, the foundation’s chief executive, said smoking parents frequently underestimate the danger their habit is doing to their children.
Briefly: World Iraq’s prime minister must unite factions BAGHDAD — Incumbent Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki cemented his grip on power Thursday, bringing an end to nearly nine months of political deadlock after he was asked to form the next government. He now faces the daunting task of bringing together Iraq’s Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish factions in a government that can overcome enduring tensions as the country struggles to develop its economy and prevent a resurgence of violence as the last American troops are due to leave by the end of next year. The long-awaited request from President Jalal Talabani sets in motion a 30-day timeline during which al-Maliki must pick his Cabinet. Al-Maliki, a steely politician known more for his ability to alienate than unify, said he was aware of the challenges ahead. “I call upon the great Iraqi people from all sects, religions and ethnicities, and I call upon my brothers the politicians to work to overcome all differences,” the prime minister designate said during the ceremony at the president’s palace.

The two invasions had different goals — and dramatically different body counts — but whether they have significantly different outcomes remains to be seen. What started out as a quick war on Oct. 7, 2001, by the U.S. and its allies to wipe out alQaida leader Osama bin Laden and the Taliban has instead turned into a long and slogging campaign. Now about 100,000 NATO troops are fighting a burgeoning insurgency while trying to support and cultivate a nascent democracy.

South Korean officials walk through a destroyed neighborhood on Yeonpyeong island Friday.
South Korean defense chief resigns; more troops ordered By Hyung-Jin Kim and Foster Klug
The Associated Press
YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea — South Korea’s president ordered more troops to a front-line island and dumped his defense minister as the country grappled with lapses in its response to a deadly North Korean artillery strike. In scenes reminiscent of the Korean War 60 years ago, dazed residents of Yeonpyeong island foraged through blackened rubble Thursday for pieces of their lives and lugged their possessions down eerily deserted streets strewn with bent metal after Tuesday’s hail of artillery. The barrage darkened skies, set off fierce blazes, killed four South Koreans and raised fears of
an escalation that could lead to full-scale war. “It was a sea of fire,” resident Lee In-ku said, recalling the flames that rolled through the streets of this island that is home to military bases as well as a fishing community famous for its catches of crab. The spit of land is just seven miles from North Korea but had only six pieces of artillery.
Military drills start Sunday Despite warnings from North Korea that any new provocation would be met with more attacks, Washington and Seoul pushed ahead with plans for military drills starting Sunday involving a nuclear-powered U.S. aircraft carrier in waters south of this week’s skirmish.
The exercises will likely anger the North — the regime cited South Korean drills this week as the impetus behind its attack — but the president said the South could little afford to abandon such preparation now. “We should not ease our sense of crisis in preparation for the possibility of another provocation by North Korea,” spokesman Hong Sang-pyo quoted President Lee Myung-bak as saying. “A provocation like this can recur any time.” On Thursday, Lee accepted his defense minister’s offer to resign after lawmakers lashed out at the government, claiming officials were unprepared for Tuesday’s attack and that the military response was too slow. Even those in Lee’s ruling party demanded the dismissal of Defense Minister Kim Tae-young.

West: Allegedly man mailed threat to Obama
Nation: Phone call from police lobby ends in arrest
Nation: Palin’s North Korea gaffe draws criticism
World: Government’s refusal to talk angers gang
An indictment filed by a federal grand jury accuses a Northern California man of sending a letter threatening to kill President Barack Obama. Court documents stated 54-year-old Roger Hudnall of Eureka made the threat in a letter mailed Jan. 7, 2009. It’s not clear from court documents whether Hudnall has an attorney. Wednesday’s indictment said he’s currently in state custody on another conviction. The San Francisco Chronicle said Hudnall previously served federal prison time for mailing a threatening letter containing white powder to the FBI’s San Francisco office in 2002.
The young man apparently just wanted to phone his parents. But his mistake came when he made the call from the Eugene, Ore., police station. Police said an officer working a desk assignment Wednesday recognized the man in the station’s lobby from surveillance footage of Tuesday’s robbery of a Wells Fargo bank branch. The officer notified detectives, who arrested the man nearby. Police said 23-year-old Nathan Alan Bramlage was booked into the Lane County Jail for investigation of seconddegree robbery and violating probation. Detective Ralph Burks said, “I just assume that he didn’t believe that we’d recognize him.”
Sarah Palin is drawing criticism from around the world after declaring that the United States has to stand with “our North Korean allies.” Palin’s gaffe, made Wednesday during an interview on Glenn Beck’s syndicated radio show, was quickly corrected by her host. But it drew immediate fire from liberal bloggers, who cited it as an example of the 2008 vice presidential candidate’s lack of foreign policy expertise. Newspapers in Asia and Europe are repeating the criticism. The Times of India said Palin “did it again,” while London’s Daily Mail said she “may want to brush up on her geography.”
Banners hung on pedestrian bridges in several western Mexican cities Thursday expressed anger that the government has ignored a drug cartel’s offer to disband if authorities improve security in the gang’s home state.

Appeal: Group says project will
significantly increase pollutants Continued from A1
The environmental groups said that the project will significantly increase such pollutants as nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and mercury, which will cause harm to human health and the environment. The appeal also said that the Ecology permitting process failed to consider the impact on regional forests of removing large amounts of forest wood to feed the cogeneration boiler. “The mill is in a floodplain, a tsunami zone and an earthquake zone that is next to several neighborhoods,” Brewer said. “For Ecology to say this is ‘environmentally insignificant’ is unconscionable.”
[Tuesday] that an appeal of our permitting decision for the Port Townsend Paper Corp.’s boiler and fuel system upgrades has been filed. “We understand that with most permit decisions we make there is an opportunity for an appeal. “In this case, our first step is to work closely with our legal counsel and evaluate specific points alleged in the appeal.” County Community Development Director Al Scalf said the mill will need to meet building and water quality codes for the project, which is slated to start next year, though it is not now known if appeals will slow the process.
Ecology’s order also sets stricter pollution limits for the upgraded boiler than the mill’s current limit, the state department said. Eveleen Muehlethaler, the company’s vice president for environmental affairs, told Jefferson County officials in a letter in October that the project will include an extensive upgrade to air pollution control equipment, produce renewable electricity, reduce fossil fuel burning by 1.8 million gallons per year and create 30 full-time jobs and the equivalent of an additional 35 jobs during construction.

Playfield work to begin this spring By Jeff Chew
Peninsula Daily News
SEQUIM — The development of 13 acres east of the city of Sequim’s Water Reclamation Demonstration Park into multiuse playfields will begin in the spring instead of this year, the president of Sequim Family Advocates said. “We’re going to be starting in the spring, that much is known,” said Craig Stevenson, adding that his original plan to break ground this fall was “probably unrealistic.”
Additional donations By then, he said, he expected additional donations to roll in to develop the fields — five large and three small — for soccer and other games. “We’re now meeting with community leaders and people around town,” Stevenson said of fundraising efforts. “Many people will be hearing from us in the next month to month and a half.” The group plans to begin work in April. “I have every reason to believe that the kids will be playing on the fields by next fall,” he said. Already, Lakeside Industries of Port Angeles, Primo Construction of Carlsborg and Sequim’s Clallam Co-op have committed to work and supplies that will level
the playfields and parking area, Stevenson said, providing in-kind labor that is worth more than $200,000. That leaves about $240,000 to be raised. Stevenson said additional money has been raised in the past month, but he had not tabulated how much. Stevenson figured that, without donations and paying for labor and supplies outright, the project’s cost could run up to $500,000. Under a proposed agreement with the city, the fields will be maintained by the city at an estimated cost of between $13,000 and $14,000 a year, city officials have said.
Four months to build Stevenson said it would take about four months to build the playfields and a parking lot with at least 100 spaces, as well as to complete a loop trail around the playfields that will provide new space for youth soccer, flag football and lacrosse play, in addition to festival and events grounds for the general public. Stevenson said that some 1,000 children are anxious to play on the new fields. The fields available now — the Sequim School District’s — have been overused and are pockmarked with muddy spots and lumpy grass that is unsafe to play on.
At times, Stevenson said, teams are left to practice on paved portions of the school grounds for lack of an available field. He called it a “crisis” back in October 2008 when Sequim Family Advocates first formed. Use by junior soccer youths has doubled over the past seven years to 500 players, with additional soccer club use at about 100 more. Use is at its peak during the late afternoons Monday through Friday on fields near Helen Haller Elementary School and at Hendrickson Road near Sequim Middle School and near the high school baseball fields, he said.

A wet but warmer weekend is expected to melt the dirty ice and snow that lingered on the North Olympic Peninsula from Monday’s snowstorm. The National Weather Service lifted a winter weather advisory for Clallam and Jefferson counties Thursday afternoon. Temperatures plummeted after Monday’s storm, with subfreezing temperatures locking in the Peninsula until Thursday’s warming trend.

The settlement was a win-win for both parties, City Attorney Craig Ritchie said Wednesday. Sumpter suggested the settlement did not make him a winner. “It was a compromise, and nobody’s happy with a compromise,” Sumpter said Wednesday. “It saved us from going to court, so that was good for us.” Sumpter now can proceed with preparing the site but must get building permits before construction can begin. Sumpter, owner of Blue Sky Real Estate on Priest Road and whose Sequim Y3K LLC will build the shopping center, would not discuss the specifics of the settlement. Under its terms, Sumpter must pay $70,768 in fees for “proportionate” shares for traffic signals at intersections at U.S. Highway 101 and River Road and at Hendrickson Road and North Fifth Avenue, Ritchie said. He does not have to pay $80,772 for intersection improvements at West

SEQUIM — A civil settlement between the city of Sequim and Priest Road Center developer requires the developer to pay some, but not all, of the fees the City Council originally imposed. Ed Sumpter filed the suit in December 2009, challenging $151,540 in fees for traffic signals and intersection improvements that the Sequim City Council had agreed to impose on his planned 70,775-squarefoot, two-story shopping center on Sequim’s westside commercial corridor. Under the settlement, approved by Clallam County Superior Court on Oct. 1, he will pay less than half that, or $70,768.

Boeing 787’s fire sparked by debris? By Joshua Freed
The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS — Boeing Co. said Wednesday that some kind of foreign debris probably caused the electrical fire aboard a test flight for one of its new 787s earlier this month. The company said it is making “minor design changes” to the plane’s power-distribution panels and is working on a plan to resume test flights of the much-delayed plane. Boeing doesn’t know what the foreign object was, because whatever it was burned up in the fire, spokeswoman Lori Gunter said. “It was small, it wasn’t as big as a tool,” she said. “A tool would leave evidence.” The Chicago-based company said its engineers believe the problem began as either a short circuit or an electrical arc in a power
distribution panel, “most likely caused by the presence of foreign debris.” Boeing said it simulated key aspects of the Nov. 9 fire in a laboratory, and is fixing the design to shield the panel. It also plans software changes, the company said. The panel is one of five major power distribution panels on the 787, receiving power from the left engine and distributing it to a variety of systems.
Emergency landing The fire broke out as the plane was approaching Laredo, Texas, forcing an emergency landing. It caused smoke in the cabin and some structural damage. The plane will soon be returned to Seattle, the company said. Boeing has been flighttesting the 787, which it calls the Dreamliner, aim-
ing to deliver the first one to Japan’s All Nippon Airways around February, which would be nearly three years later than originally hoped. That seems increasingly unlikely, and an additional delay is widely expected. On Wednesday, Boeing said it would present a plan to resume flight testing to the Federal Aviation Administration as soon as it is complete. It didn’t say when that would be. It said a revised 787 schedule would be finished in the next few weeks. The 787 is made mostly of composite materials designed to make it lighter and more fuel-efficient than other planes of the same size. Boeing shares Wednesday rose $1.81, or 2.9 perThe Laredo Morning Times via The Associated Press cent, to close at $65.41 on anticipation that any delay Firefighters and airport officials investigate the scene of an incident news wouldn’t be as bad as involving a Boeing 787 jetliner at Laredo International Airport on Nov. 9 in Texas. some people had feared.
U.S. soldier in Afghan case Air Force may waives preliminary hearing stall lesbian’s By Gene Johnson
The Associated Press
SEATTLE — A U.S. soldier who told his family of an alleged plot to kill Afghan civilians for kicks — only to be charged in the case later — has waived his right to a preliminary hearing, meaning his case will likely go straight to military trial, his lawyer said Wednesday. Spc. Adam Winfield of Cape Coral, Fla., is one of five soldiers charged in the deaths of three civilians during patrols in Kandahar Province this year.
Following orders Prosecutors said he willingly participated in the final killing, but his lawyer, Eric Montalvo, has argued that Winfield feared he’d be killed by one of his co-defendants if he didn’t follow an order to shoot at the victim. Duress is not a legal defense to a murder charge. Winfield was set to have an Article 32 hearing next
Tuesday at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle to help decide whether there’s enough evidence for a court martial. But he waived it because “it would have been a waste of time,” Montalvo said. Montalvo said he and prosecutors have already discussed the case during plea negotiations and each side is aware of the other’s legal position. If a plea agreement can’t be reached, Winfield would refuse to testify against any of his co-defendants, Montalvo said. “We’re trying to resolve this in a way that allows Adam to help the government convict those we believe to be truly responsible,” Montalvo said. “As of today, those efforts have failed.” Winfield, 22, told his parents in Internet messages Feb. 14 that members of his unit had deliberately killed a civilian — “some innocent guy about my age just farming” — and planned to kill more.

“We’re trying to resolve this in a way that allows Adam to help the government convict those we believe to be truly responsible. As of today, those efforts have failed.”

His colleagues threatened him to keep quiet, Winfield wrote, according to copies of the messages provided to The Associated Press.
‘It eats away’ He also told his parents he didn’t know what he should do: “Should I do the right thing and put myself in danger for it. Or just shut up and deal with it,” he wrote. “There are no more good men left here. It eats away at my conscience every day.” His father, a former Marine named Chris Winfield, made several calls to Joint Base Lewis-McChord that day and said he asked the Army to intervene on his son’s behalf.

a 12-minute call with someone at the base, and Chris Winfield said he was told that unless his son was willing to come forward while in Afghanistan, he should keep his head down and report his allegations once the deployment ended. The Army is investigating how that call was handled. The second killing occurred about a week after Chris Winfield’s call, and the final one occurred in May. No suspects were arrested until that month, after military police learned that a witness in a drug investigation in the unit had been beaten and threatened with fingers severed from Afghan corpses.
Unjustified kills The witness told them that some of his colleagues had unjustified kills. In statements to investigators, soldiers described a plot led by Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs of Billings, Mont., to murder civilians. Much of the case is based on statements from Spc. Jeremy Morlock, of Wasilla, Alaska, who acknowledged participating in the killings. The other defendants are Spc. Michael Wagnon of Las Vegas, and Pfc. Andrew Holmes of Boise, Idaho. Charges against all five include murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Gibbs insists the killings were legitimate engagements, while Wagnon and Holmes deny knowingly participating in any staged killings.

The Associated Press
SEATTLE — The Air Force said Wednesday it hasn’t made a decision on whether to try to keep a lesbian flight nurse from being reinstated while it appeals a judge’s ruling to return her to her old job. U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton in Tacoma ruled two months ago that former Maj. Margaret Witt’s firing under “don’t ask, don’t tell” violated her rights, and he ordered that she be given her job back as soon as she put in enough nursing hours to meet qualifications for the position. The Justice Department appealed that ruling Tuesday. But government lawyers did not seek a stay that would put the judge’s order on hold. Witt’s lawyers celebrated the DOJ’s decision, saying it meant she could be reinstated even as the appeal proceeds. But the Air Force issued a statement Wednesday making it clear that if Witt meets her nursing qualifications, military officials and the Justice Department will reconsider whether to seek a stay. “To date, she has provided the Air Force no evidence that she meets the qualifications necessary to serve as an Air Force flight nurse, nor has she passed a medical physical, which is also a prerequisite to her reinstatement,” said the statement released by Lt. Col. Karen A. Platt. Witt’s lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington said they’d fight any effort to keep their client from resuming her duties during the appeal. They noted that the judge found that her dismissal advanced no legitimate military inter-
est, and to the contrary actually hurt morale in her unit at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. “We do not foresee a problem in Maj. Witt getting reinstated,” ACLU spokesman Doug Honig said. “We will present the Air Force with evidence showing she meets the nursing hours requirements and she will pass the physical.”
Fitness test The physical is a fitness test, rather than a medical exam, Honig said. Witt was suspended in 2004 and subsequently discharged after the Air Force learned she had been in a long-term relationship with a civilian woman. If Witt is reinstated, she would be serving openly at a time when the military’s policy on gays is in disarray. President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates want to end the ban, but said it should be done through Congress, not the courts. A federal judge in California has declared the 1993 “don’t ask, don’t tell” law unconstitutional — a ruling the DOJ is also appealing. In the meantime, the Pentagon has implemented new guidelines that have drastically cut the number of gays being dismissed under the policy. The Pentagon plans to release a monthslong study Tuesday on how lifting the gay service ban would affect armed forces. “Don’t ask” prohibits the military from asking about the sexual orientation of service members but allows the discharge of those who acknowledge being gay or are discovered to be engaging in homosexual activity.

New wins over old for Victoria bridge More than 60% of voters give the nod to replace Peninsula Daily News news sources
VICTORIA — The big blue drawbridge that dominates one of Inner Harbour’s views when ferries from Port Angeles land will be replaced. The Johnson Street Bridge was already 36 years old when the MV Coho began its daily ferry runs between Port Angeles and Victoria more than 50 years ago. The landmark span that Victorians affectionately call the Blue Bridge because of its powder-blue hue will be replaced with a modern drawbridge, voters decided last weekend. Victorians turned out in droves last Saturday to give the nod to the city borrowing $49.2 million Canadian ($48.7 million U.S.) to replace the bridge, on which lots of rust now peppers the powder blue and the street and railroad bed has trouble rising to let tall ships pass.
“It’s great that the city is now in a position to move forward. We can now start on a new bridge and make sure we can deliver what was promised on time and on budget.”

because this is the biggest infrastructure project in the city’s history and we want to make sure that taxpayers are provided with all of the information about how it’s being run.” The plan is to build a three-lane bridge, complete with on-street bike lanes, a multiuse path and dedicated sidewalk, immediately north of the existing bridge, which links downtown Victoria with new highrise on the northwest side as well as Esquimalt. Road approaches on both sides of the bridge are to be improved and the “S” curve Bonds approved on the west side is to be More than 60 percent of eliminated.

Voter approval But getting voter approval wasn’t easy. Eighteen months ago, council’s rush to approve the project in hopes of attracting federal-provincial infrastructure funding led to a petition signed by more than 10 percent of residents demanding a vote on borrowing money for a new bridge. Opponents then argued the city had not given enough consideration to refurbishment, then estimated at $35 million. Stung by that criticism, the city ordered staff to develop an apples-to-apples comparison of replacing versus refurbishing the bridge. That comparison, which included the cost of developing detailed designs and an economic impact study, pushed the cost of refurbish-
ment to an estimated $80 million ($79.2 million). Consultants said refurbishing the bridge would

‘Critical habitat’ set aside for polar bears Alaska area smaller than first planned; drilling faces limits By Matthew Daly
The Associated Press
The Obama administration is setting aside 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a “critical habitat” for polar bears, an action that could add restrictions to future offshore drilling for oil and gas. The total, which includes large areas of sea ice off the Alaska coast, is about 13,000 square miles, or 8.3 million acres, less than in a preliminary plan released last year. Tom Strickland, assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks at the Interior Department, said the designation would help polar bears stave off extinction, recognizing that the greatest threat is the melting of Arctic sea ice caused by climate change. “This critical habitat designation enables us to work with federal partners to ensure their actions within its boundaries do not harm polar bear populations,” Strickland said. “We will continue to work toward comprehensive strategies for the long-term survival of this iconic species.” Designation of critical habitat does not in itself block economic activity or
other development but requires federal officials to consider whether a proposed action would adversely affect the polar bear’s habitat and interfere with its recovery. Nearly 95 percent of the designated habitat is sea ice in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas off Alaska’s northern coast. Polar bears spend most of their lives on frozen ocean where they hunt seals, breed and travel.
Parnell complaints Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell and the state’s oil and gas industry had complained that the preliminary plan released last year was too large and dramatically underestimated the potential economic impact. The designation could result in hundreds of millions of dollars in lost economic activity and tax revenue, they said. In response to the Obama administration’s action, Parnell said Wednesday that the state is pleased that existing man-made structures will be exempted from critical habitat considerations. But, he said in a statement, the state is disappointed it was not consulted
on many other recommendations. “This additional layer of regulatory burden will not only slow job creation and economic growth here and for our nation, but will also slow oil and gas exploration efforts,” Parnell said. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said reductions included in the final rule were mostly due to corrections that more accurately reflect the U.S. border in the Arctic Ocean. Five U.S. Air Force radar sites were exempted from the final rule, as were Native Alaskan communities in Barrow and Kaktovik. The Interior Department has declared polar bears “threatened,” or likely to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service become endangered, citing a dramatic loss of sea ice. The setting aside of 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a “critical
habitat” for polar bears could add restrictions to future offshore drilling for oil and gas.
Officials face a Dec. 23 deadline to explain why the bears were listed as threatened instead of the more protective “endangered.” Kassie Siegel, a lawyer for the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group that has filed a lawsuit to increase protections for the polar bear, hailed the designation of critical habitat. “Now we need the Obama administration to actually make it mean something so we can write the bear’s recovery plan — not its
obituary,” she said. Siegel called for the administration to impose a moratorium on oil and gas drilling in bear habitat areas. “An oil spill there would be a catastrophe,” she said. “That seems like an understatement.” The Arctic Slope Regional Corp., which advocates for Alaska Native business interests, said in a statement that the decision disproportionately impacts Alaska Natives and called the designation the “wrong
tool” for conserving the polar bear because it does nothing to address climate change. “The burden of the impacts will be felt by the people of the Arctic Slope,” said Tara Sweeney, vice president of external affairs for ASRC, which is based in Barrow, Alaska. “This is a quality-of-life issue for our people.” Kara Moriarty, deputy director of the Alaska Oil and Gas Association, said the action would hurt oil and gas exploration in
Alaska by creating more delays and added costs to projects in what already is a high-cost environment, she said. “The companies and the industry will be required to go through more permitting and create mitigation measures without a direct benefit to the polar bear or oil and gas development,” Moriarty said. “The Fish and Wildlife Service has found over and over again our activities pose no threat to the polar bear.”
Study: Neighborhood, school performance linked By Donna Gordon Blankinship The Associated Press
SEATTLE — The Seattle schools improving the most in recent years are nearly all in neighborhoods north of Interstate 90, away from the areas where most poor children in Washington’s largest school district live, a new analysis of district data reveals.
The University of Washington’s Center on Reinventing Public Education reported this week that south-end neighborhoods have 75 percent of the lowest-performing schools, and most of their high-achieving schools are in the more affluent areas of West Seattle. Only one in seven Seattle schools are both high growth and high achieving, and
none of these are high schools, the researchers found when they took a closer look at the data released to the public earlier this month by Seattle Public Schools. “I think the district really deserves some credit for day-lighting their data,” said the lead researcher on the report, Christine Campbell. “I really would love for Seattle to use this as a
“The besT cars caN cosT you less!”
chance to really do something.” District spokeswoman Patti Spencer said the district has been targeting schools with extra help and guidance throughout this research process, and some of the schools exhibiting the most growth were those getting the most help. “We feel that this is just a really critical step forward for us and for the community to publish this information,” she said. “When we focus our attention and the community’s attention on data that is easy to understand and accessible . . . we know that performance will improve.” Spencer noted, however, that in other school systems successfully turning around schools, like Boston, it has taken at least five years for school data to show real progress and 10 years to finish the process.
Campbell, who lives in Seattle’s south end, encouraged the community to not be overly patient about seeing progress in the most needy schools. “We have to really set a short time frame on what it looks like to have turnaround there,” she said.
Sharing with public In sharing this information with the public, Seattle is following a trend started by Denver about four years ago. Other big districts like Los Angeles and New York spread the idea, and now others around the nation are joining the movement at a progressively faster pace. Campbell gave credit for this trend to Rich Wenning, who developed the growth method for Denver Public Schools and then was hired by the state of Colorado to refine and expand
it statewide. His computer model can be used for free by anyone. “All the places that are doing it are really happy with their ability to compare apples to apples,” she said, adding that the most difficult part is making sure the district or the state has the necessary data to plug into the formulas. In addition to giving the general public more information about how their local school is doing and where it falls within the district, Campbell speculated this may also be the first time Seattle Public Schools has looked at student and school information in this way. Some people were grouchy about the district spending money to analyze data and come to conclusions that nearly everyone knew, Campbell said, but it’s important for the district to move beyond hearsay and into real information to direct its next moves.

‘Hyper-texting,’ sex, drug links for some teens
Reusable bags might contain traces of lead
By Mike Stobbe
By Ben Dobbin
The Associated Press
ATLANTA — Teens who text 120 times a day or more — and there seems to be a lot of them — are more likely to have had sex or used alcohol and drugs than kids who don’t send as many messages, according to provocative new research. The study’s authors aren’t suggesting that “hyper-texting” leads to sex, drinking or drugs but say it’s startling to see an apparent link between excessive messaging and that kind of risky behavior. The study concludes that a significant number of teens are very susceptible to peer pressure and also have permissive or absent parents, said Dr. Scott Frank, the study’s lead author. “If parents are monitoring their kids’ texting and social networking, they’re probably monitoring other activities as well,” said Frank, an associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
Confidential survey The study was done at 20 public high schools in the Cleveland area last year and is based on confidential paper surveys of more than 4,200 students. It found that about one in five students were hyper-texters and about one in nine are hyper-networkers — those who spend three or more hours a day on Facebook and other social networking websites. About one in 25 fall into both categories. Hyper-texting and hyper-networking were more common among girls, minorities, kids whose parents have less education and students from a singlemother household, the study found. Frank’s study is billed as one of the first studies to look at texting and social networking and whether they are linked to actual sexual intercourse or to other risky behaviors. “This study demonstrates that it’s a legitimate question to explore,” said Douglas Gentile, who runs the Media Research Lab at Iowa State University. The study found those who text at least 120 times a day are nearly 3½ times
more likely to have had sex than their peers who don’t text that much. Hyper-texters were also more likely to have been in a physical fight, binge drink, use illegal drugs or take medication without a prescription. Compared with the heavy texters, the hypernetworkers were not as likely to have had sex but more likely to have been involved in other risky behaviors like drinking or fighting. A Kaiser Family Foundation study found that about half of children ages 8 to 18 send text messages on a cell phone in a typical day. The texters estimated they average 118 texts per day. That study also found that only 14 percent of kids said their parents set rules limiting texting. Other studies have tied teen texting to risky or lewd behavior. A Pew Research Center study found that about one-third of 16- and 17-year-olds send texts while driving. And an Associated Press-MTV poll found that about one-quarter of teenagers have “sexted” — shared sexually explicit photos, videos and chat by cell phone or online. The latest survey did not ask what students texted or what they discussed on social networks.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — So you care about the environment, and you take a reusable shopping bag with you to the grocery store to avoid polluting the planet with countless plastic sacks. Now you find out your bag is made with lead. What’s an environmentalist to do? If you’re like Elnora Cooper, nothing. “I’m not eating the bag, and I’m not going to get rid of it,” Cooper, 68, said with a chuckle after walking out of a Wegmans Food Markets store in Rochester, N.Y., this week with a reusable bag under her arm. The latest in a long line of ominous warnings about potentially dangerous products concerns synthetic but reusable bags that may contain traces of lead.
An ironic concern The stir in supermarkets and Congress is less about whether the toxin might rub off on food and more about whether they could accumulate in landfills and create an environmental hazard. But since the point of the bags is that they’re to be kept, not tossed out, and because the concentration of lead in them is so low, some shoppers are convinced there’s little risk of an imminent toxic catastrophe. “I switched to reusable bags six or seven years ago to keep plastic out of landfills,” said Cooper, a retired nurse. “I’ll keep using the one with the lead, truthfully, before I start using plastic again.”
Subject matter One suburban Cleveland student said her texts involve nonsexual small talk with friends, homework assignments and student council bake sales. “I text with my mother about what time I need to be picked up,” said Tiara Freeman-Sargeant, a 14-year-old Shaker Heights High School freshman. She said she sends and receives about 250 texts a day. Talking on the phone just isn’t appealing to some teens, said her classmate, Ivanna Storms-Thompson. “Your arm gets tired, your ear gets sweaty,” said Ivanna, who also doesn’t like the awkward silences. Like her friend, Ivanna said she mostly gets A’s. Whether kids who text do well in school or behave in a crazy, risky way is coincidental, she said. “It depends on who you’re talking to and whether they have their priorities straight,” she said.
Sales halted The Rochester-based Wegmans chain of 77 stores in several Eastern states halted sales of two styles of reusable bags in September after tests by a local environmental group found they contained potentially unsafe levels of lead. Wegmans said there’s no evidence the 750,000 bags it sold pose a health threat. “The eventual disposal of the bags is the only issue, from an environmental perspective,” said spokeswoman Jo Natale, urging customers to return the bags for replacement when
The lead appears to be in a form that’s not easily extracted or “leached” out. But over time in a landfill, laboratory experts told the newspaper, the bags break down, and paint can flake off. Lead was used in the paint to add color, opaqueness and durability; it has been banned in wall paint in the U.S. since the
late 1970s. Anyone concerned about the possibility of lead in their shopping bags can rest easy if they use cotton canvas bags rather than the more colorful synthetic type, said Russ Haven of the New York Public Interest Research Group in Albany. “At this point,” he said, “the canvas bags have a clean bill of health.”

they’re no longer useful. The company, which has sold an estimated 4.5 million reusable bags at its stores in five states, has not decided yet how it will dispose of returned bags.

Outcomes define quality of giving GIVING SHOULDN’T just give the giver a warm feeling. “We’re looking for outcomes, not just outputs,” United Way of Clallam County Executive Director Jody Martha Moss told the Ireland Shelter Providers Network’s Nov. 17 meeting, which I emceed. Outputs are measured in numbers served. Outcomes are seen in lives changed. Moss reported on United Way’s new education initiative and “Voices” listening project, which hosted conversations with 48 diverse groups. A group of single mothers in the Peninsula College medical assistant class told Voices that they formed a baby-sitting cooperative, proving that people in need can solve some of their own problems. High school students from dysfunctional families told Voices that they’re turning their chal-
lenges into “drive to do better and be different,” Moss said. Nine “wounded warriors,” including servicemen from World War II to the present, shared experiences in achieving educational, home-ownership and health care goals through veterans services. Ironically, Scott Buck had just reported that his 16-hour-a-week position administering Clallam County’s Veterans Relief Fund ends Dec. 1. To help cut $108,000 out of the county commissioners’ office budget, veterans fund money that paid Buck’s salary will instead offset part of a commissioners secretary’s salary. She will spend designated hours in the courthouse basement, handling veterans’ aid requests. Cuts to federal, state and local government programs are unavoidable in the face of shrinking revenues, but the University of Washington “is looking at advocating for a system of looking at long-term impacts to determine the wisdom of cuts,” Moss said. “If we have to cut, let’s be as value-driven and effective as possible.”
The same applies to private donations. United Good Neighbors of Jefferson County and United Way of Clallam County annual campaigns are far from meeting their targets as the Peninsula Daily News’ Peninsula Home Fund appeal kicks off and bell-ringers begin drawing attention to Salvation Army kettles. Givers give to make substantive changes in people’s lives, and that hinges on desire. “How do you instill volition in someone?” asked Brandel Sundt, a member of the boards of directors of Peninsula Community Mental Health Center and Serenity House of Clallam County. There’s no single mechanism that triggers volition — the desire to change. Moss recalled a young couple who had no desire to give up the party lifestyle, even after it reduced them to living in a car. “Then they got pregnant,” she said. For the couple, impending parenthood triggered volition. “Their focus moved from self to the child’s needs,” she said. They sought help from Serenity House and First Step and
Peninsula Voices Compost content In a recent issue of the magazine Soil U.S.A. (November 2010, Volume 40, No. 11), there is an article about compost contaminants. The city of San Francisco had a giveaway program in which from 2007 the city gave to gardeners its “organic biosolids compost.” There were independent tests done of that compost made with municipal sewage sludge that show it has high levels of contaminants. These contaminants have endocrine-disruptive properties and include PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ether), flame retardants and an antibacterial agent (triclosan). The article states that these are bioaccumulate in the environment and elevated levels have been found in California citizens. The city of Port Angeles also makes “compost” with municipal biosolids.

Harm reduction efforts can create hope that leads to desire for a better life, but there’s “a troubling sense of blaming the victim,” Moss said, “until you realize it’s impacting your family, your friends and your future.” “Some people are extremely difficult to help,” said Sundt, one of Serenity House’s original founders 28 years ago. “We had drunks lying in the street,” he recalled. “We still have a population of people who don’t know they need help or what help they need,” said Helen Mills, who works for Olympic Community Action Programs. Affectionately known as OlyCAP, the two-county agency disburses the Home Fund, as well as health, nutrition, employment and other assistance programs serving seniors to infants. “A lot of people [who receive services] haven’t gotten past the embarrassment [so they] don’t

always tell the whole story,” Mills said. Gaps in the story — and perhaps in services — inspired United Way “to find out from the community where to direct resources,” Moss said. “We’re still supporting a strong safety net,” she assured the providers, but the board added a focus on education, especially early learning, to “try to move the needle.” Long-term, United Way’s goal is “more kids graduating from high school, fewer dropping out, healthier kids, better parenting,” Moss said, listing countable outputs. The outcomes, she predicted, will be “higher income levels, healthy living, fewer addictions.”

“compost” conforms to “class A pathogen reduction, vector attraction reduction and pollution concentration limits as set in these rules.” I understand that the test results are available of the city’s “compost” but it can’t be good to grow your veggies with biosolids. Maureen Wall, Port Angeles We asked for a response from city Public Works Director Glenn Cutler. Here it is: I have no firsthand knowledge of the compost issues with the city of San Francisco. The city of Port Angeles’ Garden Glory Compost is a high quality product that meets or exceeds state and federal standards. Garden Glory Compost is a soil amendment made with 75 percent yard debris and 25 percent biosolids, the solid material left over from the treatment process at the wastewater treatment facility. Currently, facilities in Washington state using biosolids to make compost,
including the city of Port Angeles, comply with the standards set by: ■ Standards for Use and Disposal of Sewage Sludge EPA Code of Federal Regulations 40-503 ■ Biosolids Management Washington Administrative Code 173-308 ■ Solid Waste Handling Standards Washington Administrative Code 173350. The city of Port Angeles
has met and exceeded the standards listed above since it began testing its compost in March 2007. The compost is tested quarterly for nutrients, moisture levels, heavy metals, salts, seed viability, pH and many more parameters. In addition, every pile is tested for salmonella. This product meets the standards for pathogen reduction and pollutant
concentration limits as set by state and federal rules. In addition, Garden Glory compost meets all standards set by the U.S. Composting Seal of Testing Assurance Program. Test results are available by contacting email@example.com. If you have any additional questions or concerns please contact me at 360-417-4800 or gcutler@ cityofpa.us.
Is it my imagination, or has Thanksgiving been lost in this money-madness called Christmas? Do our children really know what Thanksgiving is all about — or are they centered on knowing the next holiday is Christmas? What exactly is Thanksgiving? The way the overall economy is this year, “thankful” for knowing that things could be worse! What does Thanksgiving stand for? Thankful that we are still “one nation under God” and that for most, we have a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs and food to fill our stomachs! One more thing about Thanksgiving (and the extended holiday weekend) — we who can help those who don’t have those things that I pointed out can feel thankful to help those that don’t have what you and I have. Hope you had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Joel K. Pursell, Sequim
Good, bad erosion? Just fix the road! I’m continually amused by the acrobatics some people who call themselves “environmental activists” go to bend scientific fact to their side of an issue. I got my latest laugh from Seabury the good people of the Olympic Blair Jr. Forest Coalition, who think Dosewallips River Road should be allowed to erode away, effectively blocking access to two public campgrounds. According to a recent news story, the only thing that is now stopping Olympic National Forest Supervisor Dale Hom from
getting the road fixed is a lack of funding. Those of you who have been living in isolation the past eight years need to know that a big storm washed a football field-size chunk out of Dosewallips River Road in 2002. And you might be surprised to learn that it hasn’t been repaired yet. There are a couple of reasons for that, but much is due to the nice people of the Olympic Forest Coalition. These folks have discovered the difference between good and bad erosion. John Woolley, the president of Olympic Forest Coalition, was quoted in that Nov. 17 story: “Benign neglect can be a good thing. It’s [the washout] eroding perfectly for the fish.” That’s good erosion.

Bad erosion is the stuff that stirs up silt, covering and killing salmon and steelhead eggs. Woolley would tell us that the acre of dirt, at least 80 feet thick, that slid into the Dosewallips River 8 years ago was bad erosion, since it undoubtedly killed a whole generation of fish. But today, the erosion from the washout is somehow good for the fish. Perhaps, in order to improve spawning habitat in rivers, we should blow large portions of landmass into them at regular intervals. Anyway, it’s time to get the road fixed, and do it with the least damage to the environment. In order to do that, the feds will have to find some money quickly, because with every passing year, the cost of returning the six miles of road beyond the
washout to service will increase. I’ve always found it interesting that Mount Rainier National Park found the bucks to repair the road to Longmire within months after it washed out, while Olympic National Park couldn’t muster any dollars to help out with the Dosewallips road. Both roads served national park campgrounds and both led to national park buildings. And while the Longmire Road was the exclusive responsibility of the National Park Service and Department of Interior, the Dosewallips Road could have the combined financial resources of two federal agencies — the Forest Service and Department of Agriculture and the Park Service and Department of Interior. So I would say this to Forest Supervisor Hom: there’s this thing called the American Recov-

Outfoxed in the Graveyard of Empires And we wonder why we haven’t found Osama bin Laden. Though we’re pouring billions into intelligence in Afghanistan, we can’t even tell the difference between a no-name faker and a senior member of the Taliban. The tragedy of Afghanistan has descended Maureen into farce. Dowd In the sort of scene that would have entertained millions if Billy Wilder had made a movie of Kipling’s “Kim,” it turns out that Afghan and NATO leaders have been negotiating for months with an imposter pretending to be a top Taliban commander — even as Gen. David Petraeus was assuring reporters that there were promising overtures to President Hamid Karzai from the Taliban about ending the war. Those familiar with the greatest Afghan con yet say that the British had spent a year developing the fake Taliban leader as a source and, despite a heated debate and CIA skepticism, Gen. Petraeus was buying into it. The West was putting planes and assets at the poseur’s disposal, and paying him a sum in the low six figures. “It’s funny but not funny because the consequences are so staggering,” said a Western diplomat. “Put it this way: It was not well handled.” We’ve heard a lot about the shadow world of Afghanistan, but this is ridiculous. We’re bargaining with the shadow of a shadow. Even President Karzai may have been fooled. The man taking us for a ride may have been taken for a ride. Indeed, sometimes it feels as if the entire region is taking us for a ride. Everybody is lining up for Western cash, treating America, the British and NATO like suckers. President Karzai and his brother toy with us for their immense personal profit, even as they corrupt their own elections. Karzai undermines the Ameri-
can military plan by going up against Gen. Petraeus on night raids. And the Taliban and the Pakistan intelligence service are Petraeus playing us as well. America is stomping around the moonscape of Afghanistan trying to do the right thing, but we can’t because we’re clueless about the culture to the point where we can be faked out by an imposter masquerading as Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, a high-level Taliban commander. As Dexter Filkins and Carlotta Gall revealed in The New York Times on Tuesday, the Afghan faker attended three meetings with NATO and Afghan officials, traveling across the border from Pakistan, where Taliban leaders are hiding with the help of the ISI, the Pakistani intelligence service (even though we give Pakistan billions of dollars in aid every year). The Times’ article said that the phony was even ushered into a meeting with Karzai at the presidential palace in Kabul — something the crafty Karzai denied. He may have been dispatched as an agent by the Taliban — whose leaders still deny there are any peace talks — or the double-dealing Pakistani intelligence service. “The Taliban are cleverer than the Americans and our own intelligence service,” a senior Afghan official told the Times. “They are playing games.” Bizarrely, the Afghans let the fake Mansour retreat over the border. In a further huge embarrassment for the Western intelligence community, he was not held to determine whether he was an enemy agent. Nor is this the only confusion about our war. We also can’t seem to get the calendar straight. First, we were leaving in 2011. Then maybe we weren’t. Then we weren’t leaving until 2014. Then
maybe we aren’t. In trying to please all his many wartime constituencies, President Obama has provided a confusing plethora of plans and semiplans for withdrawal. No sooner had the NATO ministers in Lisbon agreed that we were staying till 2014 than Obama declared that “early 2011 will mark the beginning of a transition to Afghan responsibility.” On the duration of our commitment to the war in Afghanistan, we seem to be faking ourselves out. Obama wants to get out; Petraeus wants flexibility. “The real protagonists are the president and the general,” one Obama adviser noted dryly. It should have been a sign that the Russians, who are a lot more vicious than us and have a much closer cultural attachment to the Graveyard of Empires, got whipped after 9 years and 50 days — which we’re now exceeding. Just as with Saddam and WMD, or groping and the TSA, we get no satisfaction for the $80 billion a year we spend on intelligence. Or we get fake information like Curveball that leads us into spending trillions more on a trumped-up war. Last year, seven top CIA officials were fooled by a Jordanian double-agent who got onto an American base in Khost and blew all of them up. Our agents in the “wilderness of mirrors” may not be up to le Carré, but can’t they learn to Google, or at least watch “The Ipcress File”? Who knows? Maybe we’ve been dealing with bin Laden all along. Maybe he’s been coming and going under a different moniker. As far as our intelligence experts are concerned, a turban and beard are just a turban and beard.

There’s nothing like American ingenuity One of my favorite television programs is “How It’s Made” on the Science Channel. The documentary series shows “how the everyday objects people use become the things they are.” From ketchup and Michelle flip-flops, to nail clippers Malkin and snare drums, to NASCAR engines, hydraulic cylinders and motor homes, the show takes viewers on wondrous autobiographical journeys of the mundane products we too often take for granted. Though it originated in Canada and has become a global phenomenon, “How It’s Made” is largely a tribute to individual American ingenuity and American entrepreneurs. The show’s myriad episodes spotlighting U.S. inventions also serve as potent antidotes to the government-centric vision that reigns in the White House these days. Last summer, President Barack Obama opined that the proper role of private entrepreneurs is to fulfill “the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy” — and that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” Last month, Vice President Joe Biden boasted that “every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive.” Such command-and-control narcissism is completely alien to the unique American culture and marketplace that have bred so
many successful inventors. Consider the electric carving knife that so many of you are using without a second thought this Thanksgiving holiday season. Jerome L. Murray, the New York City man who invented the ubiquitous kitchen appliance, was an insatiable tinkerer from his teens until his death in 1998 at the age of 85. He was driven not by a social justice agenda or by the need to “grow the economy” to boost government employment figures, but by a constant desire to solve problems, cut costs, satisfy his own intellectual curiosities and pursue the profit motive. Murray funded his creative pursuits out of his own pocket, not with taxpayer dollars. And one moneymaking idea was never “enough.” According to his obituary in The New York Times, the prolific inventor “saw no sense in inventing something that could not be sold.” At the time of his death, Murray held an astounding 75 foreign and domestic patents: ■ At 15, Murray manufactured a windmill that powered a radio generator and sold it to farmers in rural areas where regular electricity was unavailable. ■ In 1951, after observing passengers descending airplane stairs in the rain at Miami International Airport, he came up with the idea for covered airplane boarding ramps to protect travelers from inclement weather and to enable those in wheelchairs to cross into their terminals without having to be forklifted off their planes. The walkways are now used in airports around the world. ■ To save time and energy whenever he needed to climb the roof to adjust his television antenna for better reception, Murray crafted a television antenna rotator by attaching two
strings to the antenna and pulling them from his window. The invention evolved into the TV antenna rotator, which Murray’s obituary reports “generated nearly $40 million in sales over several decades.” ■ Murray also invented the audible pressure cooker, the power automotive seat, a highspeed dental drill and the peristaltic pump, which moves fluids through the body without damaging cells using contractions and expansions. The lifesaving pump paved the way for historic breakthroughs in open-heart surgery and kidney dialysis — and its technology has been applied by the food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing and chemical processing industries. ■ And to assist harried housewives in the post-World War II era, Murray combined the use of an interior combustion motor with dual blades to create the electric carving knife. It was patented in 1964, and the same technology used to slice up your turkey was adopted to create medical and forensic tools now used in surgeries and autopsies. Murray’s self-interested capitalist pursuits yielded untold benefits and conveniences for the rest of the world. In the tale of the mundane electric carving knife lies a profound lesson: Liberty, not “government vision,” yields innovation. For this priceless insight bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers, Americans should give eternal thanks.

United Way pleads for more donations Peninsula Daily News
The United Way of Clallam County, having raised $360,000 toward its $1 million goal, will mail out a plea for more help this week, said Jody Moss, executive director. “ L a s t year, we had more donors at this point, and the amount was a b o u t $50,000 more,” Moss Moss s a i d Wednesday. She estimated that more than 1,400 people have contributed to the annual fund drive so far and said that more donations may be on the way as businesses wrap up their fundraising campaigns.
Economic impact “But I think we’re starting to see the economic impact of what’s going on right now,” she said, referring to high unemployment and other news of a poor economy. “We’re a little concerned.” Moss said that $953,000 was donated to United Way last year. A mailer will be delivered to all residents and businesses in Clallam County, with the first mailing Wednesday. “The mailer is not a request for a second gift but a way to reach people who don’t give through a work-
“Many people in our community are struggling just to get by,” he said. “Every contribution, whether $10 or $1,000, is important. If everyone in Clallam County sent in a donation, imagine the good we can do right here at home.” Moss said that economic needs will be solved at the local level. “United Way is one of the best ways to do that because it’s local,” she said. “It helps people stay working. It helps people get back to work. It’s an economic driver.” United Way does that by supporting agencies that help with job skills and teach how to budget diminBudget cuts ished resources well, she Funds for health and said. human services have been severely reduced, she said, Supports new parents “and many fear that tradiUnited Way agencies tional sources of social service funding may not be also support new parents, helping them find child care restored in the future. “Some of the budget cuts they can afford and be betthat are on their way are ter parents at home so “the just going to create more kids are growing up people in need,” Moss said. healthy,” Moss said.

But as donations stall, the need grows, she added. “Many people who have never been unemployed before are seeking help for the first time,” Moss said. United Way personnel are hearing from members of its 25 partner agencies — which will receive allocations from the United Way fund drive — that they are “being inundated with people asking for help,” Moss said.

Blackhawks (10-1) will meet Neah Bay head coach Tony for the second straight year in McCaulley wouldn’t have it the Class 1B state football semifinals when they face off at any other way. Peninsula Daily News
“They have everything to lose and we have nothing to lose,” said McCaulley, whose 2009 team beat Lummi twice during a perfect regular season only to fall 64-36 to the Blackhawks in the state semifinals. “It’s way better than last year. Last year we were the ones who felt the pressure. “My team is so young this year, I don’t think they even know where they are at.” That is, of course, a bit of an understatement. After all, many of the same players who will suit up for the Red Devils on Saturday were also on the field last year.

Steelhead: hot start Hopefully we can keep the wet stuff at a minimum. The way winter steelhead fishing is going right now, the longer the rivers stay in shape, the better. If things remain close to form, anglers ought to do pretty well this holiday weekend, according to Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods in Forks (360-374-6330). “They are killing them,” Gooding said. “It’s been snotty, but the weather let up and it ain’t bad at all. “There’s quite a few steelhead around.” Indeed, reports of limits have spread to all corners of the North Olympic Peninsula. The Bogachiel and Calawah, in particular, have produced a fair amount of fish during the past week. Those two rivers are the epicenter of the West End’s hatchery steelhead run and tend to come into shape by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. This year appears to be no different. “I’ve had guys that said they quit counting when they were in the 20s,” Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles said. “I talked to one customer that said they caught four limits out of the hatchery hole [on the Bogachiel].” Added Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-6831950) in Sequim: “If I had an opportunity to go someplace for fishing, that’s where I would be. Without a doubt.” The Bogachiel Hatchery steelhead run is the largest of its kind on the Peninsula. Several other rivers in the area receive a hatchery run of some form or another, including the Hoh, Elwha, Lyre, Clallam, Pysht, Hoko and Sekiu. Some of those fisheries will end after this winter, however, due to budget cuts within the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. The peak for hatchery steelhead typically comes between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when hordes of anglers eschew those holiday shopping plans for a shot at the steelies.

Pirates’ new captain Von Vogt brings vision to Peninsula basketball By Matt Schubert
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Lance Von Vogt’s goals aren’t much different from any other college basketball coach. Championships, division titles, banners hanging from the rafters . . . there isn’t a program in the country that envisions any less in its master plan. More important to the 36-year-old Peninsula College men’s coach, however, is the process by which his Pirates go about getting that done.
“If we exhibit toughness on a play-by-play basis, on a day-byday basis, on a game-by-game basis, if we exhibit rebounding and fundamentals and discipline on the court, off the court and in the classroom, then that’s “I always tell the guys, ‘Some- what we become.” times, the scoreboard lies,’” Von Vogt said while sitting in his Greek philosophy office days before the start of his Quoting an ancient Greek first season in Port Angeles. philosopher to put a new spin on “You can go out there and win a game, but the other team the old “one game at a time” got more out of their talent than sports cliche?

Hawks: Trying to improve run defense Continued from B1 Last week against New Orleans, poor tackling allowed Chris Ivory to run for 99 yards and helped dictate the tenor of the Saints’ 34-19 win. Now, Seattle is faced with trying to correct its problems against Kansas City’s duo of Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. “We saw on the tape there are some things we are starting to go away from as far as technique and fundamentals,” Seattle safety Lawyer Milloy said. “So now at this point of the season, the last six games, it’s more so focusing on the things you do good, getting back to the basics, stuff like that.
“It’s really simple. That game we didn’t do a lot of things right, especially on the defensive side of the ball. It’s easy to correct.” There are multiple reasons for Seattle’s sudden turn in stopping the run. Through their first five games, the Seahawks didn’t allow any opponent to run for 90 or more yards. Then injuries began mounting, especially on the defensive line. Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane missed four games with a calf injury and while he was out, defensive end Red Bryant was lost for the season to a torn knee ligament. Fellow defensive tackle Colin Cole also suffered a high-ankle sprain and isn’t
expected back until the middle of December. Seattle’s win over Arizona on Oct. 17 first exposed the issue when the Cardinals ran for 114 yards. Including that game, four of Seattle’s last five opponents have topped 100 yards, including 239 yards rushing allowed to Oakland and 197 to the New York Giants. Now come the Chiefs, who lead the league averaging 164 yards per game on the ground and are third in the league with nearly 5 yards per carry. In its six wins, Kansas City is running for nearly 192 yards per game. Charles has an outside shot at a second-straight 1,000-yard season on Sun-
day, needing 152 to reach the benchmark. Jones has rushed for 644 yards. “You’re dealing with a wide variety of skill players back there and they all have different attributes they bring,” Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. “We just have to talk about really keep leverage on them, getting 11 hats on the ball when they do run and we’re going to have to swarm to them.” Seattle came out of New Orleans frustrated because its inability to slow down Ivory made the day easier for Drew Brees, who proceeded to pick apart a leaky pass defense for 382 yards and four touchdowns. The worry isn’t much
different this week with Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel, the secondhighest rated passer in the entire league the past five weeks. Seattle brought back Amon Gordon, who was with the team in training camp, to add some depth along the defensive line and add competition. Carroll said he planned to continue with the same group, but perhaps change the rotations to try and awaken a run defense that carried the Seahawks early in the season. “We did a lot of things uncharacteristic,” Milloy said of the loss to New Orleans. “Are we going to fix it right away? I don’t know. But we need to.”

Next stop Von Vogt replaced outgoing coach Peter Stewart this June after Stewart resigned to take a job in his native North Dakota at Minot State. The move to the North Olympic Peninsula is the last of several stops along Von Vogt’s 12-year coaching career. That odyssey began as a graduate assistant under Paul Hewitt at Georgia Tech, then later led to head of basketball operations positions at Georgia State and Eastern Kentucky, a head coaching gig at Oxford College of Emory in Georgia and, most recently, an assistant’s job at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Ariz. Along the way, he picked up many of the ideas that are now part of his vision for Peninsula College. “You find out really quick that coaching is more than X’s and Os and drawing something on a board,” said Von Vogt, who played college ball at St. Johns River Community College in Palatka, Fla. “The one thing [Hewitt and Driesell] did was bring people together. Added Von Vogt, “When you’re a new coach you have to set the tone. You have to let the guys know what do we stand for, and that’s been a focus of mine since I stepped on campus. “I shared the vision with the guys: We’re going to be a family. “I’m sure we’re going to have our arguments, but at the end of the day we’re going to look out for each other like brothers.” That idea is something that has been embraced by many Pirates this fall, according to returning sophomore Trevant Musgrow. Much of that, however, has to do with the players Von Vogt brought in to the program, the 5-foot-11 shooting guard said. “Last year we had a lot of different personalities on the team,” Musgrow said. “This year we’re a lot closer.

In addition to Pirate Madness, Von Vogt has also installed a new weight training program focussing on more reps and less weight as well as a more up-tempo practice style. “With Coach V, we have transition offense the whole time at practice,” returning sophomore forward Jeremiah Johnson said. “We’ll do one thing on one side [of the court] and then as soon as we’re done there we’ll run to the other side and do the same thing. “It’s a lot faster, so it’s getting us ready for actual game situations. “That’s a little bit different than last year where we kind of ran through stuff over and over [on one side of the court] and then put it into play, instead of putting it into play as we do it.”
grinding run game that McCaulley hopes to employ against the Blackhawks on Saturday. “We’ve got to play tough defense and we’ve got to control the ball,” McCaulley said. “We’ve got to control the clock, which means we’ve got to keep the ball away from them.” With good reason. Lummi has one of the most explosive offenses in eight-man football. The Blackhawks, led by all-everything athlete Eric Robinson (1,383 yards rushing/receiving, 27 touch-
downs), have scored 45 points or more nine times this season. Just last week, they put 63 points on Taholah in a mercy-rule victory in a firstround playoff game. “We felt we were only a couple plays away from winning that game [in October], but that’s what Lummi does to you,” McCaulley said. “They make those big plays on you. “We’ve just got to shut down one of two of them.” Maybe then the Red Devils can get their revenge.
Peninsula College men at a glance ■ Head coach: Lance Von Vogt (First year) ■ Last year: 10-6 in North Division, 13-14 overall; Eliminated in NWAACC tournament (0-2). ■ Returning sophomores: Trevant Musgrow (5-11, G), Bryce Jacobson (6-4, F), Jeremiah Johnson (6-4, G/F). ■ Top newcomers: DeShaun Freeman (6-7, F, Fr.), Thad Vinson (6-3, G, Soph.), Mitrell Clark (5-10, G, Soph.), Sammeon Waller (5-11, G, Fr.). ■ Outlook: Armed with a roster stocked with athleticism, firstyear head coach Lance Von Vogt wants his Pirates to push the pace this season. “One of the things I hear from pretty much everybody that sees us . . . is ‘Man, you guys are quick,’” Von Vogt said. “I think we’re going to have to use that quickness and speed to our advantage. We’re going to pull it back when we need to when we don’t get what we want in transition, but we’re going to try and run in transition almost every possession.”
Von Vogt envisions the Pirates having a deep rotation with 19 players on the roster, three of which will redshirt. The offense will look to score on the fast break when possible, while the defense will focus on being disciplined in the half court, be it zone or man-to-man. The starting lineup will be pretty fluid for the first few weeks, with four players still looking to get the requisite college credits to gain eligibility. Once things come into place, quick guards Mitrell Clark and Sammeon Waller will be leaned on to create offensively. Thad Vinson could be the team’s top shooter from the outside, and returning sophomore Bryce Jacobson will be a glue guy and DeShaun Freeman a powerful inside presence. “This team is really athletic,” sophomore returner Jeremiah Johnson said. “We have a lot of good guys who are good ballplayers. “[If] we come together and plays as a team we’re going to be the team to beat this year.” Matt Schubert
Quick team The emphasis on the transition game is something Von Vogt said fits the talent of his team. A strong recruiter at Arizona Western — he helped bring in four All-Americans in five years in Yuma — Von Vogt put together a roster this summer loaded with athletic guards and wings. Among the newcomers is 5-foot-10 point guard Mitrell Clark, a former Nevada player of the year for Eldorado High School in Las Vegas. Clark received interest from numerous Division I universities after his senior year in 2009, including Loyola Marymount and Seattle University. Unable to meet academic standards, however, Clark opted to play under Von Vogt and head coach Kelly Green at Arizona Western last year. He then followed Von Vogt to Port Angeles this offseason. “He’s an outstanding coach,” said Clark, who averaged 8.8 points and 3.5 assists per game as a freshmen in Arizona. “He’s direct, he’s detailed and I love working with him.” It appears Clark is not alone.

The Pirates will carry a roster of 19 players this season — four returning sophomores — with three planning to redshirt. Von Vogt said that should translate into a great deal of versatility for the Pirates this season; enough so that they should be able to compete with the NWAACC elite in his first year.

Musgrow, an NWAACC veteran, agrees. “I think we can go really far,” Musgrow said. “As our coach says, we have to stay consistent in everything we do. If we don’t stay consistent, then we’re going to fall.” Sounds a lot like Aristotle.

New Orleans Saints defensive end Alex Brown (96) celebrates a missed field goal by Dallas placekicker David Buehler (18) in the final minute of Thursday’s game in Arlington, Texas.
Football: Saints Continued from B1 Malcolm Jenkins snatched the ball from Williams at the 11, ripping it out so forcefully that it wound up against his own stomach. Drew Brees then quickly drove 89 yards for the touchdown that put New Orleans back ahead with 1:55 left Thursday. But the drama wasn’t done yet in the Saints’ 30-27 victory. Having already overcome a pair of 17-point deficits, the Cowboys moved close enough for David Buehler to try a 59-yard field goal that would’ve tied it. His kick had plenty of leg, but fluttered just wide to the left with 25 seconds left. New Orleans coach Sean Payton started to call a timeout, which would’ve given Buehler another chance, but either Payton didn’t finish the gesture or the officials didn’t see it, so the play stood, and this wild, wacky, thriller was finished. “The play that Malcolm Jenkins makes late is an effort play, a heart play and it’s one of those plays that really inspires everyone on the team,” Payton said. “It was a gut-check win.” And a gut-wrenching loss for Dallas. The Cowboys came in 2-0 under interim coach Jason Garrett, playing like the Super Bowl contenders they were supposed to be instead of the 1-7 cupcakes they turned into under coach Wade Phillips. They made plenty of Phillips-era mistakes to fall behind 17-0 in the first quarter and 20-3 before halftime, then showed the poise and toughness Garrett has instilled by fighting back. Buehler kicked a 53-yard field goal as the first half ended, Miles Austin went 60 yards on an end-around on the second play of the second half and Dallas was back in the game. The Cowboys went ahead 27-23 on Tashard Choice’s 1-yard touchdown run with 5:51 left, then Williams caught a short pass and took it 47 yards, following a block from Miles Austin as he approached the end zone. Williams switched the ball from one hand to another to avoid cornerback Tracy Porter, knowing the Cowboys could stretch the lead, kill some clock or both as long as he didn’t fumble. Then, Jenkins grabbed it. “I lost the ballgame,” Williams said. “I let my teammates down. I need to fall down. We run the clock down and win the game. “I was trying to make a play and they did a good job. It’s late in the game. That’s the nail in the coffin. We had the momentum going our way. We were there. That was a W. “I get tackled, we get in the end zone and we win. I fall down and we win.” Jenkins said he chased the play with only one thought — “get the ball out.” “He didn’t see me from the blind side,” Jenkins said. “A bad play turned good for us. Not only ripped it out, it just kind of fell in my stomach.”
New England 45, Detroit 24 DETROIT — Tom Brady was perfect on the field and his exit was first-class. Brady threw a seasonhigh four touchdown passes, all in the second half, and the New England Patriots routed the Detroit Lions 45-24 on Thursday after trailing by 11 late in the second quarter. “We showed some resiliency, coming out in the second half and playing the way we did when the crowd was into it,” Brady said. Following Brady’s brief news conference, the former Michigan star jogged out of Ford Field — limping slightly up a steep ramp — hugged Robert Kraft and got into an idling limo with the team owner behind a police escort. New England (9-2) remained tied with the AFC East rival New York Jets — who beat Cincinnati 26-10 on Thursday night — for the NFL’s best record, setting up a showdown at home Dec. 6. “I don’t think we’re at where we need to be at,” Brady said. “But this is a tough group.” No one in the red, white and blue is tougher than Brady. After taking a ton of shots early in the game, the threetime Super Bowl winner and two-time MVP bounced back to complete 21 of 27 passes for 341 yards with no interceptions, giving him a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3 for the second time in his career. “He’s like a surgeon,” Detroit center Dominic Raiola said. Brady threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Deion Branch early in the fourth quarter after connecting with him on a 79-yarder to tie it at 24. Wes Welker’s second TD reception sealed the victory with 6:42 left, putting the Patriots ahead by two TDs and making their doubledigit deficit a distant memory. “When you outscore a team 35-7 in the second half, a lot of things have to go right,” New England coach Bill Belichick said.
N.Y. Jets 26, Cincinnati 10 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — One shoe or two, Brad Smith was too much for the Bengals. Smith, the Jets’ Mr. Everything, scored on an 89-yard kickoff return during which he lost his left shoe and also had a 53-yard touchdown run in New York’s 26-10 victory over Cincinnati on Thursday night. Hours after New England beat Detroit to improve to 9-2, New York matched the Patriots and the Jets are off to the second-best start in team history -eclipsed only by the 1986 squad that won 10 of its first 11. And the Jets did it by overcoming a sluggish first half and sending the struggling Bengals (2-9) to their eighth straight loss.

The program, first created as a joint project with the Olympic Peninsula Guides’ Association in 1986, supplements the Sol Duc River tributary Now that the project’s 25-year contract is set to expire, Fish and Wildlife has begun the process of reevaluating it. Larry Scott, vice president of the guides’ association, said he believes the project is viable and wants those who value the fishery to come to the meeting and voice their opinion. “We’re just concerned that this great resource is going to be pulled out from underneath us,” Scott said. “We just want people to stand up and just voice their opinion that ‘Hey, I come out to catch these Sol Duc River fish’ and that it is a good program and it is working.” The guides’ association, along with several other community members, have put in countless volunteer hours to make the program work in the past. That includes assisting with egg takes, clipping fins (Snider Creek fish have their ventral fins clipped) and catching and delivering the wild steelhead used to produce the broodstock. “It is working,” Scott said. “We’re all out there catching a lot of these fish.” Public comments on the program will be taken through Dec. 15. Comments can be submitted at the meeting, by e-mail to snidercreek@dfw. wa.gov or by U.S. Mail to: Snider Creek, 48 Devonshire Road, Montesano, WA, 98563.

Facebook pastor off the clock
Not easy to be a ‘true believer’
On temporary hiatus after he admits to 3-way
Ten years ago, my wife and I attended a birthday party in Tacoma. We met a guy at the party, a principal at a kindergarten-through-eighthgrade Catholic school, St. Charles. We said to him, “Hey, we’re getting one of your priests soon.” It was true. A young priest from St. Charles was being sent to Queen of Angels and would be our priest for years to come. “What is he like?” we asked the principal. He paused. He was thinking. “A good priest,” he finally said. And then added, “But he’s rigid.” Rigid? My wife and I did not know what that meant, but it was implied that it was the opposite of being “a good priest.” Father Kurt Nagel arrived on the scene here in Port Angeles and stayed for seven years. He is now the priest at Holy Family in Kirkland. I chuckle when I think about that conversation now, but I also cringe a bit, too. Rigid is code for “conservative” or “orthodox.” I prefer the term orthodox simply because conservative implies something political. I never knew Father Nagel’s political leanings — I didn’t really care — but I knew him to be orthodox in teaching the faith, an old-school guy, like 2,000 years ago old-school. We know that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), so why would a principal of a Catholic school seemingly be against this? A good question. A better question is why so many Catholics who don’t believe in many of the core teachings of the church remain Catholic. There are many Christian choices out there. If I’m at a movie and don’t like it, I get up and leave. This principal probably enjoys enough about the Catholic Church to remain in it, but by his dissent and as a leader in the community, he is essentially saying that it is OK to be a “cafeteria Catholic,” to pick and choose what you want to believe and adhere to. This makes a good case for not only understanding the teachings of the church, but why they are taught. A good place to begin is The Catechism, an $8 book that pretty much explains everything. The Eucharist, baptism, prayer — it is all there. Yet beware. The Catechism is considered an “orthodox” text; after all, Pope John Paul II was the main force behind it, and we all know that, well, he was actually a true believer in so many things. Cardinal Francis Arinze of Nigeria dared to be orthodox back in May 2003 during a speech to Georgetown University, the oldest “Catholic” university in the country. During the commencement address, he touched
The Associated Press
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A pastor who barred church officials from using Facebook, saying it can lead to adultery, is temporarily stepping down from the pulpit following his admission that he engaged in a threeway sexual relationship a decade ago. The Rev. Cedric Miller made worldwide headlines last week when he urged congregants at his Living Word Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune, N.J., to drop their Facebook accounts because he believes the social networking site facilitates affairs. Days later, Miller offered to step down after The Asbury Park Press reported on a 10-year-old affair of his own involving a three-way sexual relationship with his wife and a male church assistant. On Wednesday, Miller told The Associated Press that he would be “taking some time off” following a church vote Tuesday night on his status as senior pastor. He said he will resume his pastorate “eventually.” He said church members gave him a vote of confidence, subject to some restrictions he wouldn’t list.

on social issues Acheson completely in line with Catholic teaching. Faculty left the stage during his short speech, and later, 70 faculty members signed and delivered a protest letter to the arts and sciences dean, Jane McAuliffe. The message there: authentic Catholic teaching not welcome. Seattle University, a Jesuit school, is not recognizably Catholic at all. My wife is a part-time student there. Like many Catholic schools, if not most, they have bent to the culture, and as everyone should know by now, if you marry the spirit of the age, you will soon find yourself a widower. There is an old saying regarding belief and the priesthood that goes: Men will give their lives for a mystery but not a question mark. One of the things that you could tell about Father Nagel right away was that he was a “true believer.” The story of Jesus Christ is in some ways a great mystery, but it is certainly not a question mark. Queen of Angels is currently blessed with Father Tom Nathe, a true believer. It is not easy for a priest, or anyone for that matter, to be a true believer. Our culture constantly and continually works against this. There is a quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Protestant, a great man who was hanged by the Nazis in April 1945. He said, “When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.” When I was a Marine, in the beginning, we were constantly told that we were not “back on the block” anymore. They broke us down. I came home changed in many ways, most of them good. Jesus, if you let him, will break you down. You will not be back on the block. You will see outside of yourself and recognize inner promptings to do certain things whether you want to or not. “God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and selfcontrol” (2 Timothy 1:7). There is a clear choice: the world here or something else. Long-term thinking might suggest something else. God bless.

Shoppers revel, grumble amid Thanksgiving sales By Mae Anderson
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Not all Americans tucked into turkey with their families on Thanksgiving. Some were out shopping, hitting sales ahead of the crowds expected today. After a year of cautious spending and worry over an uncertain economy and high unemployment, more stores this year extended hours into Thanksgiving Day, a day when stores are traditionally closed. Many grumble about the relentless march of commercialism creeping into the holiday. But at least some shoppers took the bait. While crowds appeared relatively light compared with the weekend ahead,
the extended hours drew in overseas visitors, those who have to work today and some who couldn’t resist a good deal. Some Sears and Kmart stores and some Sports Authority, Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic stores were among those open Thursday.
Specials in PA, Sequim (Sears stores in Port Angeles and Sequim will have their holiday specials today through Saturday.) At an Old Navy in Lutherville, Md., Brenda Tarver, 65, a retired postal employee from Baltimore, was dragged out of the house by her daughters, but was finding good deals on clothing. “They’ve got good prices
and a variety of items. A lot of things are 50 percent off,” she said. Willy Gerelbest, 45, a counselor from Brooklyn, N.Y., was shopping at Kmart for sneakers on sale for $9.99. “I saw the advertising and just wanted to check it out,” he said. “Tomorrow, I have to work.” David Friedman, president of marketing for Sears Holdings Corp. said the decision to open some stores from 7 a.m. to noon on Thanksgiving Day stemmed from positive response to a similar “early Black Friday” sale in November, as well as success with Kmart, which Sears also owns and has been open on Thanksgiving for 19 years. Workers will earn holiday pay and still be home in

time for a Thanksgiving meal, Friedman said. Last year, consumers spent about $300 million online on Thanksgiving, compared with $887 million on Cyber Monday, according to comScore. According to Akamai Technologies, which tracks traffic to 270 retail sites, traffic peaked at 11 a.m. and was up about 14 percent from Wednesday. Early data from Coremetrics, an IBM company, from early afternoon showed that online Thanksgiving Day sales were up about 10 percent over Thanksgiving a year ago. The average order size was down 18 percent from a year ago to $130.50, but that figure was getting bigger as the day went on.
Sharp price drops seen for flat-panel TVs
Open house set
The Associated Press
SEATTLE — If you’re in the market for a new flat-panel TV, it’s a good time to buy. TV prices usually drop from year to year, and the decline will be sharp this season thanks to a supply glut. Consumers have been holding out all year for better deals, leaving lots of unsold televisions on the shelves. Prices for high-definition LCD TVs will fall more than twice as fast as they have so far this year as manufacturers and retailers clear out inventory, analysts predict. New sets will also be cheaper because TV makers have been getting great deals on the most expensive parts, the glass LCD panels. Already, Wal-Mart

People look at wide-screen televisions at a Costco Wholesale store in Mountain View, Calif., in March. Stores Inc. has slashed prices for some older models. Among the deals — a 32-inch Vizio set that went to $298 from $348. Amazon.com Inc. and
Best Buy Co. are starting to advertise deals, too. Some of the best deals this season will be on 32-inch LCD TVs, the most popular size. They will sell for rock-
bottom rates of $300 or less, compared with about $400 last year. Prices for 40-inch and 42-inch sets will approach $500.

The names to be auctioned are in categories that include food and beverage, fashion and apparel, corporate brands and toiletries and cosmetics. There are some media brands, too, Reich said, among them Changing Times magazine, Collier’s magazine and Saturday Review magazine.

A cache of venerable brand and corporate names, not used for years — and, in some instances, decades — is to be auctioned next month in New York. The auction is being planned by Michael Reich, whose company, Brands USA Holdings, has been accumulating the rights to the names.
Reich, who is chief executive at Brands USA, estimates that 150 to 170 names will be available at the auction, scheduled for Dec. 8. The auction is another example of the growing interest in nostalgic brands as economic conditions lead many consumers to look back on what they perceived to be better, less stressful times.
According to a new study from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, nostalgic choices have power because they help consumers fulfill a need to belong. Among the nostalgic names scheduled for the auction block, Reich listed Allsweet margarine, American Brands, Bowery Savings Bank, General Cinema, Handi-Wrap plastic wrap, Infoseek, Lucky Whip dessert topping, Meister Brau beer, Phar-Mor discount drug stores, Shearson brokerage services and Snow Crop frozen orange juice.

DETROIT — The Chevrolet Volt, General Motors’ first foray into mass-market electric vehicles, will get the equivalent of 93 miles per gallon of gasoline in combined city and highway driving while powered by its batteries, the company announced. The compact car, which can go about 35 miles on battery power before a gasoline engine kicks in to generate electricity, will get 37 mpg when running on the generator alone, GM said. In a driving cycle that combines battery and generator power, the car will get 60 mpg, GM said. The figures, estimates from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will appear on the Volt’s window sticker when the car goes on sale sometime next month.

Yacht club lauded for help with housing site Peninsula Daily News
PORT LUDLOW — The Port Ludlow Yacht Club Women’s Group recently received the Olympic Community Action Program’s Community Partnership Award from OlyCAP Executive Director Tim Hockett. This award is given to groups or individuals in the community who provide outstanding support for those in need. The Port Ludlow Yacht Club Women’s Group earned this award by helping OlyCAP to refurbish its transitional housing. The plaque reads “in recognition and appreciation of your legacy of Serving and Giving, exemplifying the truest spirit of Community Action.” Last year, through networking with Kathy Mor-
gan of the OlyCAP Housing Program, the Port Ludlow Yacht Club Women’s Group learned of the need to repair, paint and refurbish eight cabins in Port Townsend that are used as transitional housing for families “in crisis,” mostly women and children leaving abusive domestic situations or homelessness.
Entire club participates After a short discussion, the group agreed to take on the project, and member Jamie Bima took the lead. After evaluating the scope of the project, the women’s group invited the entire yacht club membership to participate. More than 30 women and men cleaned, painted and provided new custom-
made curtains and bedding, kitchen supplies, carpeting, children’s books, light fixtures, a custom-made trundle bed and decorative items. The goal was to provide an environment in which children and adults using the housing would feel comfortable and secure.
Secure environment Several hundred hours of labor and thousands of dollars in cash or in-kind gifts were provided by the Port Ludlow Yacht Club members, as well as local merchants. Also inscribed on the plaque is a quote from Sir Winston Churchill: “You make a living by what you earn, but you make a life by what you give.”

Neighbors’ habit ruins homecoming DEAR ABBY: My husband and I returned to our hometown and bought a bungalow in a cute, older neighborhood. The homes are close together, separated by a single driveway. Our neighbors on both sides of us are smokers. They smoke on their front porches and flick their smoldering butts onto the driveway and yard. The ground is littered with them, which my two toddlers want to put into their mouths every time they go outside. Often, I’ll go out with a bag and collect the butts, but it’s annoying having to pick up someone’s easily discarded trash — particularly trash that has been in someone’s mouth. My neighbors are pretty rough, and I’m afraid a confrontation could result in an escalation of the problem. Should I continue gathering up the butts and keep my mouth shut? Or should I just “butt out”? Bothered in Missouri
For Better or For Worse
Dear Bothered: If you are concerned about a hostile reaction from your neighbors, do not approach them — particularly if you’re afraid that doing so could become confrontational. Instead, plant hedges or bushes between your property and theirs and have your children play — under your supervision — in the backyard.
Frank & Ernest
Dear Abby: My mom has three sisters, two of whom I am very close to and love dearly. The problem is the third sister, “Aunt Sandy.” She had a falling out with Mom a few years ago and is now considered the black sheep of the family. At my grandmother’s funeral, I had the chance to sit and talk with her, and I didn’t feel I was doing anything wrong. However, my mom told me later she was “hurt” because I had talked to Aunt Sandy knowing the family is upset with her. Mom said she’d appreciate it if I didn’t do it again. I tried to explain that the way she feels about her sister shouldn’t have anything to do with our relationship, but Mom
dear abby Abigail
refuses to understand. I want a connection with my Aunt Sandy without hurting my mom. Please help. We’re Still Related
Dear Still Related: I wish you had told me in more detail why your mother is angry with Sandy and why the rest of the family is cooperating in isolating her. However, you are an adult. Whom you choose to befriend is your business, not your mother’s. If you wish to pursue a relationship with Aunt Sandy, you are free to do so. And if you don’t want your mother to be “hurt,” don’t discuss it with her. Dear Abby: I was walking to lunch a few days ago and approached the entrance of a restaurant a couple of seconds after a man approaching from the opposite direction. He was a gentleman and held the door for me. I said thank you and walked inside. Even though he was there first, I wound up in front of him in a long line. Are there rules of etiquette for this? I felt a little awkward essentially cutting in line after he was so chivalrous. Nicole in Denver Dear Nicole: There is no rule of etiquette that dictates it, but you could have offered the gentleman a chance to be in line in front of you. However, if you did, he might have extended his chivalry further and refused. ––––––––

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last ARIES (March 21-April 19): Chances to invest in something that can bring joy or financial gain are within reach. Make arrangements for time with someone you love or, if you’re single, participate in a social event that aligns you with potential partners. 5 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Give and take will be required if you want to maintain balance at home. Don’t let emotions get out of hand. Spend your time fixing up your residence or preparing for end of year festivities. Information you discover will influence a decision you must make. 2 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Involvement with the wrong group will cause disagreements. Do not allow anyone to take advantage of you. Focus on home, family and the people who have always supported you and your interests. Networking at functions will increase your professional opportunities. 4 stars
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can come up with interesting alternatives regarding your vocation and money-making ability. Listen to what someone with experience has to say. There is plenty of opportunity but be

willing to incorporate change into the way you do things. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have more control than you realize and should be looking for ways to take advantage of every situation that comes along. Your outspoken approach will sway people you talk with to see things your way. Leave some time for romance. 3 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep your business and personal life separate. Problems at home are apparent if you can’t agree on the budget changes that are needed. A change of plans will lead to a blowout that can cause isolation. 3 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Getting rid of the clutter in your life will serve a purpose. Focus on friends, neighbors and travel plans. Getting together with people who share your interests will lead to important professional information. 4 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t put up with anyone trying to make you feel bad or guilty. Instead, spend time with people who help you to generate the most, not the least. Sharing your ideas will lead to changes that will enhance projects you have in the works. 2 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you are prepared to state facts, figures and intentions, it will be difficult for anyone to deny you the right to keep moving forward. You will win a settlement or tender but the cost may include the loss of a friendship. 5 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone from your past will cause problems for you. Do not reopen a relationship that you walked away from long ago. It is not in your best interest to get involved with anyone secretly. If you feel guilty or uncertain, it’s best to take a pass. 3 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put everything you’ve got into moneymaking ideas, investments or plans. You can raise your income, change your position or set yourself up for a bright new start. Put your plans for next year in motion now. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may want to back down and let others take the stage for a moment. Listen carefully to what’s being revealed and you will have a much better idea how to position yourself for success. A job opening will help you change the way you live. Greater income is heading your way. 3 stars

‘Something wonderful’ Sunday’s event, as well as the second one Dec. 5, will begin at 3 p.m. and run for a good two and a half hours, Rotsolk said. Tickets are $12 at the door. Right about now, Rotsolk is in a state of high anticipation. The “Messiah” is “just a really, really great piece of music,” said the conductor, who retired to Port Townsend after leading the Northwest Girlchoir in Seattle for some 20 years. From the first time Handel’s work was performed, 268 years ago in Dublin, Ireland, its fame has been constant, she added. What some don’t realize is that this beloved piece of Christmas exultation wasn’t composed as a church piece. It was performed in a concert hall in April 1742, during Lent, a season of sober reflection.
“When I look up and see their faces,” she said, “there’s something wonderful going on.” Baritone soloist Dave Spaun is one of the firsttimers. The “Messiah” is “strenuous,” he said. Spaun has been singing for 25 of his 35 years, in barbershop groups and other choruses. This latest project, he said, “has been a growing experience musically.” To handle Handel’s fast-paced work, “you have to learn to be agile.” Spaun, a minister at the Church of Christ in Port Townsend, encourages people of all skill levels to consider joining the chorus. “It’s the highest-quality community-level [group] I’ve been in,” he said. To find out more about the chorus, phone publicist Lynn Nowak at 360-3851402.

CHIMACUM — The 105-voice Community Chorus of Port Townsend will converge this Sunday for the first of two performances of Handel’s “Messiah,” at the Chimacum High School auditorium, 91 West Valley Road. Rebecca Rotsolk, who’s been rehearsing since early September with the chorus, said one of her challenges was finding a venue large enough for the production. “There is not room for one more person on the stage” at the high school, she said. Performing with the chorus is a 17-piece orchestra including strings, oboes, bassoons, trumpets and timpani, added Rotsolk. The players are coming from around Jefferson County and from Port Angeles and Silverdale to present the beloved oratorio.
Tickets & times
“It’s a drama, definitely,” Rotsolk said, and Handel “was a composer for the theater and the concert hall.” She’s been watching the “Messiah” come to life in the voices of the chorus, which includes well-seasoned singers as well as people who are learning the music for the first time. “Over half of the people in this chorus had never sung it before . . . They’ve worked really hard,” Rotsolk said, adding that the level of energy the singers put in to learn it has inspired her.

Abby Mae & Homeschool Boys release CD
Singing before talking
He ticked off the tracks on the record, which is a four-song EP, as in extended play: more than a single, less than a fulllength album. First off is “Byker Hill,” an obscure Irish song; next comes “Angeline the Baker,” a traditional bluegrass tune recorded with loud-barroom effects. That leads to “Black Dog,” the Led Zeppelin romp, remade via the fiddles of 20-yearold Joey Gish and 23-yearold Mark Erb. Homeschool Boys fans may recall live versions of “Black Dog,” but this EP version is completely different, with “a haunting vibe,” said Rivers. Finishing the four is “I’ll Fly Away,” a traditional gospel song featuring some traditional gospel singers from Port Angeles. Their voices are layered in, Rivers said, so that as the
Latson, a native of Port Angeles, learned to sing before she learned to talk. She grew up singing in the Independent Bible Church in Port Angeles, and then joined the choir in high school. But more important, “I just sing all the time,” around the house, with the other Latson women: her mother, Kandi, sister, JoAnna and grandmother, Juanita. When it comes time to go on stage at a nightclub, “I get kind of nervous. I can’t eat anything,” beforehand. “But when I get there, I get this really great confidence; I get into the zone. . . . I get into the character of the song. “I just want to give people the music. I want them to feel what I’m feeling,” and to step inside the story being told.
By Diane Urbani de la Paz
In “Landslide,” written by Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, Latson becomes the woman who’s looking back on a love affair. “She has to move on from it; she has to figure that out.” Latson herself has figured out the Homeschool Boys are exactly the right band. Gish, Erb, Rivers and 18-year-old upright bassist Hayden Pomeroy are each “essential,” she said. “I couldn’t sing like myself without them.”
After the concert Abby Mae & the Homeschool Boys’ debut record, simply titled EP One, will be on sale at Wine on the Waterfront during this evening’s concert and at Renaissance, the massagecoffee-tea shop at Front and Peabody streets, after tonight. Rivers, 24, returned to his home town of Port Angeles after attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Like his bandmates, he has a day job, working at Wine on the Waterfront. And now that the group is a year old and releasing its first EP, he’s already planning the next record. EP One is the first in a series, Rivers said; No. 2 will be produced in December and released by March. Music lovers can plan on more bluegrass, changed up and done in Abby Mae & the Homeschool Boys style. “We’re a bunch of young kids,” he said, “doing a bunch of old, dusty songs,” with vigor and variation. At the same time, “there are a lot of messages in the songs that I hope carry through to people.” As for tonight’s party, “it’s about community and celebration,” Rivers said. “It’s a barn dance-hoedown without the barn.”
Abby Mae & the Homeschool Boys will celebrate the release of their first CD at 9 p.m. at Wine on the Waterfront.

PORT ANGELES — It’s short. Sharp. With some shock of the new in the traditional stew. The first CD from Abby Mae & the Homeschool Boys, a young bluegrass band growing a reputation on the Olympic Peninsula, has its coming-out party at 9 tonight at Wine on the Waterfront, in The Landing mall at 115 E. Railroad Ave. It’s an all-ages concert with a $6 cover charge that includes a copy of the CD, and “it should be a heck of a rockin’ show,” said David Rivers, guitarist with Abby Mae and the boys, who were in fact home-schooled.
song progresses, they slowly creep in, climaxing in the sound of “a humongous choir.” The voices belong to members of the Peninsula Men’s Gospel Singers: Rivers’ father, Michael, the director, with Shawn Dawson, Dan Cobb and Greg Bondy. Fronting them all is Latson, the 21-year-old singer who’s been stunning listeners, including David Jacobs-Strain, the acclaimed blues singer who performed last May at the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts in Port Angeles. “I was knocked out first by Abby’s voice,” JacobsStrain said after hearing her band’s rendition of “Black Dog.” He later invited Latson and the Homeschool Boys to open for him at Bar N9ne in Port Angeles and The Upstage in Port Townsend last August.

Tire Siping non-SipEd
Research has shown that the most effective braking power occurs immediately prior to losing traction. Siping extends the window allowed for maximum braking gRipping EdgES gRipping EdgES power by giving the existing tread a helping hand. In the examples above, notice how the siped tire has dozens more gripping edges.
The tread surface on your tire is made up of many smaller surfaces known as “Tread Blocks.” The reason for so many surfaces is especially important when it comes to icy or SuRFACE tESt SuRFACE tESt wet road conditions. The “Tread Blocks” get their gripping power not from their many smooth surfaces, but from the even more numerous sharp surrounding edges. Siping provides more of these gripping edges.
WILL SIPING ADVERSELY AFFECT MY TIRE’S PERFORMANCE
Siping will not adversely affect your tires performance in any way. The tread on your tires retains all of its strength due to the patented spiral cutting process. This process leaves uncut areas known as tie bars keeping your tread strong.

SMOOTHER RIDE! non-SipEd
New asphalt is relatively smooth but time and wear exaggerates the coarse texture of the road’s surface causing your tires to absorb most of the StAndARd MiCRo FlEXiBilitY FlEXiBilitY impact. Siping gives your tires a MicroFlexibility reducing the wear on your tire’s carcass and sidewalls. This effect not only increases tire life, but will result in a smoother ride.
