Seattle foot ferry coming next year With a $50 round-trip fare, it won’t be for commuters BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Preparations for a passenger ferry to Seattle — at $50 per round trip — are focused on completing necessary paperwork and an outreach program that will tell the public what the service is — and what it is not.
Ferry service remains on track to begin service in the summer of 2013, said Jim Pivarnik, deputy director of the Port of Port Townsend. The first of a series of community meetings about the project is planned Tuesday, when port representatives will answer questions from the Tuesday Morning
Group at 9 a.m. at the Highway 20 Roadhouse, 2152 W. Sims Way. Port personnel also expect to answer questions about the financial problems reportedly besetting the Port of Kingston’s ferry to Seattle, which is costing taxpayers about $35,000 per passenger and which may be shut down, according to The Seattle Times. The two projects are quite different, Pivarnik said. Although the Port Townsend boat will be built or purchased through a $1.3 million federal grant, no public money will be used for its operation, he said.
It will be operated privately by Puget Sound Express. Also, it will not be a commuter service, Pivarnik added. “The purpose of the ferry is to bring people from Seattle to Port Townsend,” he said. “Some people may use it to get to work, but that’s not its purpose. “If you have to be in Seattle at a certain time of the day, it may not be the best way to go.” Weather and water conditions may decrease reliability, and sailings could be cancelled at the last minute, Pivarnik said, adding that, at $50 per round trip, it also
is too expensive for commuters. “The service will be priced for visitors who will pay the $50 fare,” he said. “People are worried that the ferry will turn Port Townsend into a bedroom community, but that’s not going to happen.”
Kingston boats? No thanks Pivarnik said that the Port of Kingston did approach the Port of Port Townsend to see whether it wanted to buy either of its boats. TURN
Community stays true to tradition Loyalty Day in Brinnon 60 marchers and 60 viewers: ‘Small-town America at its best’ BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
BRINNON — The annual Loyalty Day parade doesn’t draw a large quantity of people, but the quality is first-rate, organizers brag. “The saying is that we have more people in the parade than we have watching it,” said organizer Dalila Dowd. “But the whole community comes out to honor our country.” Dowd estimated that this year’s parade drew 60 participants and 60 observers. “This is the first parade of the year and represents small-town America at its best,” said Jim Watson, as he helped participants line up before the parade.
Parade travels two blocks The parade, which travels along two long blocks through Brinnon, took about 10 minutes from start to finish. It was followed by a ceremony in front of Johnston Realty at 40 Brinnon Lane. Commemorated with large banners carried by parade participants were 12 soldiers from Washington state who had died in Iraq or Afghanistan. “It is to honor those who have given their lives and those who are serving now,” Watson said.

Dempsey pulls teen from wreck “GREY’S ANATOMY” STAR Patrick Dempsey turned real-life hero Tuesday when he pulled a teenage driver from a wrecked car after a serious accident outside his Malibu, Calif., home. The TV hunk, who plays top neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd on the hit medical Dempsey drama, raced into action after witnessing the young motorist’s Mustang flip over several times and crash into his front yard. According to TMZ.com, Dempsey used a crowbar to free the boy from the wreckage as he waited for paramedics to arrive. The crash victim, whose name has not been released, suffered a concussion but no other injuries.

The actress began experiencing the symptoms following the birth of her son, Moses, in 2006. At the time, Paltrow couldn’t understand why she was struggling because she had felt so happy when her daughter, Apple, arrived in 2004. The star’s musician spouse realized she wasn’t coping and broached the
subject with her. “My husband actually said, ‘Something’s wrong. I think you have postnatal depression.’ I was mortified. ‘No, I don’t!’ And then I started researching what it was and the symptoms and I was like, ‘Oh, yes I do.’’’ The 39-year-old found it easier to cope after she opened up about her condition. She hopes to help other sufferers by discussing it in public.

WILLIAM “MOOSE” SKOWRON, 81, a fivetime World Series champion and one of only two baseball players to hit three home runs in a Game 7, died Friday of congestive heart failure at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Ill. Mr. Skowron became a star first baseman with the New York Yankees and went on to Mr. Skowron appear in in 1967 eight AllStar games over six seasons. Mr. Skowron played for the Yankees from 1954-62, then won a fifth title with Los Angeles in the first season after he was dealt to the Dodgers for Stan Williams. He hit .282 in 14 major league seasons with 211 home runs and 888 RBIs, also spending time with the expansion Washington Senators (1964), the White Sox (1964-67) and the California Angels (1967).

Van plunge kills 7 NEW YORK — Seven people — including three children — were killed Sunday when their van vaulted off an overpass and fell 100 feet to the ground near the Bronx Zoo, police said. The van was driving in the
left lane of the Bronx River Parkway around 12:30 p.m. when it glanced off the median, careened across three lanes of traffic and went off the edge, police said. “It launches — airborne — over the guardrail,” a police source said. No other cars were believed to be involved. All the victims were in the van, police said. The van landed near Morris Park Avenue. It was unclear if it hit zoo property or just nearby. The Parkway was closed as officials tried to determine what caused the accident.
Dolphin in wetlands HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — A wayward dolphin is spending a third straight day in a narrow wetlands channel along the Southern California coast, under the watchful eyes of wildlife experts. Peter Wallerstein of Marine Animal Rescue said Sunday that the 6-foot-long, black-andwhite common dolphin looks healthy, but appeared slightly disoriented. The dolphin was spotted circled in shallow waters in a channel of the Bolsa Chica wetlands Friday. Wildlife experts on paddleboards managed to coax the animal toward the open sea Saturday, but it was spooked by a pair of fellow dolphins and swam back to the wetlands. Wallerstein said rescuers might try to herd the dolphin back to the ocean today. The Associated Press

The 37-foot Aegean, carrying a crew of four, was reported missing Saturday during a 125mile Newport Beach, Calif., to Ensenada, Mexico, yacht race, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The Newport Ocean Sailing Association, the race organizer, said the accident occurred near the two countries’ border. “It appeared the damage was not inflicted by an explosion but by a collision with a ship much larger than the 37-foot vessel,” spokesman Rich Roberts said. He said it was possible the crew might not have been able to get out of the way of a ship, perhaps a freighter. Roberts said a race tracking system indicated the boat disappeared about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

VIENNA — Shukri Ghanem, a former Libyan prime minister and oil minister who last year announced he was abandoning Moammar Gadhafi’s regime to support the rebels who ultimately toppled him, was found dead Sunday in a section of the Danube river flowing through Vienna, Austrian police said. Police spokesman Roman Hahslinger said the 69-year-old’s corpse was found floating in the river early in the morning. The body showed no external signs of violence, but the cause of death was not immediately clear and an autopsy will be carried out, Hahslinger said.
“It’s possible that he became ill and fell into the water,” the police spokesman said. The body had no personal identification other than a document nam- Ghanem ing the company he was working for, Hahslinger said. A company employee identified him, he said. Hahslinger said Ghanem apparently left his residence early Sunday after spending Saturday evening at home with an acquaintance. Ghanem last served as his country’s oil minister in 2011. He
left Libya for Tunisia and then Europe in June as insurgents were pushing to topple Gadhafi, and he subsequently announced he would support the rebels.
Friendly and approachable Reporters covering the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries remembered Ghanem as a friendly and approachable man who readily gave his cellphone number to journalists. With degrees in law and economics, Ghanem served in senior positions within the Vienna-based OPEC before becoming Libyan prime minister in June 2003 — an office he held until 2006 when he took the oil ministry position.

PA library to limit service during redo Patrons may reserve material, make requests BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Main Library will be partially closed Friday through May 20 as the final stages of a $72,000 reconfiguration project are completed. The closure will allow the library at 2210 S. Peabody St. to carry out the final stage of a phased project that has been under way since January. Library patrons, however, will still be able to access materials through a reservation station in the lobby. Limited checkout services will be available from noon to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, using a service area set up in the library’s Carver Meeting Room.
Online requests Patrons may use a computer to place holds, pick up held materials and browse and check out items from a mixed display of library materials. Staff will be on hand to assist customers who are not comfortable using computers to put books on hold, said Margaret Jakubcin, assistant library director.
Daily newspapers and time-sensitive news magazines will be available to read in the lobby area, and wireless access will be available in the lobby. Library programs will not be offered during the closure. “In the 13 years since the beautiful Port Angeles Library was completed, customer expectations about service, comfort and access have changed dramatically,” Jakubcin said.
New carpeting The biggest part of the project will be new carpets, which are in poor condition; in some spots, the carpet is a trip-hazard, she said. Jakubcin said that the library’s cement floors will be trenched for new wiring to support updated electronics, and new carpeting will be installed. The large, open area currently used for programming will get comfortable, movable furniture to make it a more inviting space, along with more prominent art displays and an information kiosk, she said. “The reconfigured spaces will be both functional and beautiful,” Jakubcin said. “We’re looking forward to

PT Marine Science Center selects program director PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” Jean Walat has been named the new program director for the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. Vo l u n teer/citizen science coordinator for the center since 2005, Walat fills a post that was vacated Walat by Lee Whitford. The program director oversees education programming; both the marine and natural history exhibits; and the citizen science and volunteer programs. Duties also include participating in the organizationâ€™s strategic direction. â€œJean has been instru-
mental to the success of our organization for the past seven years,â€? said Anne Murphy, executive director. â€œIt was a natural progression for her to move into the position of program director. Iâ€™m so pleased to be working with her in this capacity.â€?
Her experience Walat earned a bachelorâ€™s degree in biological sciences from the University of Delaware and a masterâ€™s degree in environmental science at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. When she moved to Port Townsend from New Jersey in 2000, she worked as a Port Townsend city planner. Before that, she worked as the education director for the Bayshore Discovery Project, a schooner-based environmental education
program on New Jerseyâ€™s Delaware Bayshore, and as a developer and manager of online bioscience databases at BioScience Information Services, the publisher of Biological Abstracts. â€œI feel honored to have an expanded role with the PTMSC,â€? Walat said. â€œThe programs we provide are important to our community, our environment and our future. â€œIâ€™m looking forward to developing more in-depth opportunities for adults and youth, and helping the organization thrive.â€? The Port Townsend Marine Science Center, located on the beach at Fort Worden State Park, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. For more information, phone 360-385-5582, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.ptmsc.org.
SEKIU â€” The Lower Elwha Klallam tribe and Rayonier have proposed a partnership to restore salmon habitat on the Hoko River in the North Olympic Peninsula. The project would add nearly 2 miles of salmon habitat to the river, in conjunction with the Elwha River restoration project that is expected to add 70 miles of salmon habitat. The 25-mile-long Hoko River empties into the Strait of Juan de Fuca at the Hoko River State Park, 4 miles west of Sekiu. Replacing a 7-foot corrugated steel culvert with a bridge would remove the last major human-made barrier to letting fish spawn in the Hoko River watershed, said Cheryl Baumann, coordinator of the North Olympic Peninsula Lead Entity for Salmon. The state-run salmon organization has a little less than $1 million in grant funds to distribute for local salmon habit restoration. Baumann said the project would benefit chinook, chum, coho, cutthroat and steelhead salmon. The Hoko River project managers are requesting
$370,000 in funding for the project. Another $200,000 in matching dollars would be provided by the Lower Elwha and Rayonier, she said. â€œThey are required to make a 35 percent match but are offering a 50 percent match,â€? Baumann said. The culvert, located on private timberland, has a 7-foot drop to the creek below, which prevents adult salmon from accessing the upper river.
received $4 million in funding for projects related to the Elwha River restoration, as well as projects on Salt Creek, Twin Rivers and Coal Creek. Projects proposed for 2012 funding include: â– Phase II design for pier removal along the Strait of Juan de Fuca and near the Twin River proposed by state Department of Fish and Wildlife, working in partnership with the North Olympic Land Trust and Coastal Watershed Institute. â– Final design of the Pysht River Estuary Restoration Project proposed by Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, working in partnership with Merrill & Ring. â– Phase III of Dungeness River irrigation group piping proposed by the Clallam Conservation District to keep more water in the Dungeness River. â– Dungeness River instream flow restoration and storage, proposed by the Washington Water Trust, to help conserve water and supplement late season flows. â– Proposed protection of land via a conservation easement along a Clallam River tributary sponsored by the North Olympic Land Trust.
Replacing the 1950s-era culvert with a bridge would give salmon access to 10,050 feet of additional habitat in the river and also would increase movement of sediment and wood, Baumann said. The Lead Entity for Salmon board of directors visited the site April 11 to prepare for a May 8 meeting, during which the Hoko River and six other projects will be considered.

zero friction transport will work CONTINUED FROM A1 Magna Force also focuses on energy-saving magnetic coupling devices that eliminate friction between pumps and motors. The test track is intended to demonstrate how the container boxes, commonly carried on semi-trucks and railroad cars, could be transported on a LEVX track, Robb said. â€œItâ€™s zero friction, essentially, to move up and down a track,â€? he said. The first 240 feet of the track was completed in January, said engineering consultant Gene Unger of Port Angeles in a March 14 letter to the city building department, which permitted the project. When completed, a straight portion of the track will be about 450 feet long, according to a plan Magna Force submitted to the city. A curved portion that loops off the main track is about 400 feet long.

threats, allowing the boots on the ground force to best allocate their resources and efforts.â€? Since 2005, the Department of Homeland Security has deployed a handful of drones around the country, with some based in Arizona, Florida, North Dakota and Texas â€” with more planned for the future. Operations out of North Dakota first began in 2011. The drones help both to patrol and aid during natural disasters. For example, Gray said the Predators have mapped the flooded Red River Valley in the areas of North Dakota and Minnesota. The
drones are equipped with cameras that can provide aerial pictures of disaster areas. The drones also can be loaned to local agencies in cases of emergencies. In fiscal year 2011, CBPâ€™s drones contributed to the seizure of 7,600 pounds of narcotics and 75 arrests, Gray added. The use of drones has proliferated among federal and local law enforcement agencies nationwide along with civilian hobbyists in recent years. In December, Congress gave the Federal Aviation Administration six months to pick half a dozen sites around the country where
the military and others can fly unmanned aircraft in the vicinity of regular air traffic, with the aim of demonstrating theyâ€™re safe.
Concerns remain But concerns remain, including privacy and the government worries they could collide with passenger planes or come crashing down to the ground, concerns that have slowed more widespread adoption of the technology. A recent American Civil Liberties Union report said allowing drones greater access takes the country â€œa large step closer to a sur-
veillance society in which our every move is monitored, tracked, recorded and scrutinized by the authorities.â€? Kendle Allen, sheriff of remote Stevens County, said his agency has not asked for drone assistance. â€œThere is always mixed feelings about something flying above you,â€? Allen said. But he said in Stevens Countyâ€™s rugged mountainous terrain, aerial patrol can be useful in case of emergencies. His office has used U.S. Border Patrol helicopters in the past to search for people missing in the woods.

EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) is an antioxidant substance found in green tea that has the potential to protect against various types of cancer as well as cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. EGCG also possesses antiviral and antibacterial properties, and is believed to protect against the spread of influenza and hepatitis C. EGCG can promote weight loss and may impart protective effects against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimerâ€™s disease and Parkinsonâ€™s disease. Topical EGCG can help to protect the skin from damaging UV-rays from the sun. Although most of the studies have shown benefits with two to three cups of green tea per day, the optimal dose of EGCG has not yet been established. We can compound EGCG in various dosage forms such as capsules, troches, lollipops, nasal sprays, and topical formulations. Ask our professional staff for more information.

They could smell smoke from its woodstove before they found it. Authorities pumped tear gas into the structure Friday, but it failed to flush the man out, either because it didnâ€™t penetrate deep enough into the structure or because the person had a gas mask.

Lynnette, and 18-year-old daughter Kaylene were found shot dead in their home last weekend. The raid ended a tense week for law enforcement officials who tried to track down Keller, a gun enthusiast described by his family as having a â€œsurvivalist mentality.â€? That Keller was likely armed and on the loose in an extremely popular hiking and mountain-biking area east of Seattle kept many people on edge. â€œThe gas didnâ€™t work, weâ€™ve got fresh people here, it was time to take the next step,â€? said King County Sheriffâ€™s Sgt. Katie Larson. â€œThereâ€™s been a huge sigh of relief. Our people are out safe, and the trails are now safe for the community to use.â€?
NORTH BEND â€” Peter Keller spent eight years carving his hole in the side of the mountain, camouflaging the rugged underground bunker with ferns and sticks and stocking it with a generator and ammunition boxes sealed in Ziploc bags.

SWAT officers who kept watch on the bunker through Friday night said they saw lights going on and off, and they believed its occupant had everything necessary to remain inside for a long time â€” including a generator, food, gas mask, bullet-resistant vest and guns.

Court documents described Keller as a loner with a survivalist mentality and who was stockpiling supplies in the woods. An arrest warrant issued Wednesday accused Keller of two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree arson; the home was set on fire after Lynnette Keller, 41, and Kaylene both were shot in the head. Their bodies were found in their bedrooms April 23. The family cat and dog also had been killed. The fire at Kellerâ€™s home was put out before the house burned down, and authorities said they found seven gasoline cans placed in different areas of the home.

partners. The bill also expands protections for children and the elderly and Native American women. The bill increases the number of visas available to battered women from abroad; sets criminal penalties for certain actions by international marriage brokers; expands the availability of safe homes for victims of domestic violence; makes it easier to bring charges under the Telecommunications Act against persons making obscene or harassing telephone calls and addresses rape and other sexual crimes on college campuses, in part by requiring schools to publish crime statistics. Since it was enacted in 1994, the law has funneled several billions of dollars in grants to state and local governments and nonprofit organizations for a wide variety of programs aimed at preventing domestic and dating violence, stalking and sexual assaults and helping victims recover when those crimes occur. Agencies such as the departments of Justice and Homeland Security and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention disburse the grants through laws such as the Victims of Child Abuse Act, the Higher Education Act and the Immigration and Nationality Act. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Cantwell and Murray voted yes.
■ UNION DUES, POLITICAL DONATIONS: Voting 46 for and 53 against, the Senate on Wednesday defeated a Republican bid to add the so-called “Paycheck Protection Act” to S 1789 (above). Under that proposed law, individual postal workers would have to give permission before their union dues could be spent on political contributions. A yes vote backed the amendment. Cantwell and Murray voted no. ■ STUDENT-LOAN INTEREST RATES: Voting 215 for and 195 against, the House on Friday passed a Republican bill (HR 4628) to prevent student-loan interest rates from doubling July 1 from the present 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. This affects the pocketbooks of some 7.4 million students who have received Stafford Loans for college expenses. The bill would offset the subsidy’s $5.9 billion annual cost by cutting the 2010 health law’s fund to promote preventive-care, or “wellness,” programs. The bill is now before the Senate, where Democrats, who control that chamber, also want to keep the student-loan interest rate from doubling July 1. But they would offset the cost by effectively raising payroll taxes on some wealthy owners of S corporations. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Dicks voted no. ■ WOMEN’S, CHILDREN’S HEALTHCARE: Voting 178 for and 231 against, the House on Friday defeated a Democratic motion that sought to prevent health care-spending cuts in HR 4628 (above) from reducing benefits in or raising the cost of private medical insurance for women and children. The motion sought to protect treatments such as mammogram, cervical-cancer and pregnancy screenings from being diminished by the “pay for” in the Republicans’ student-loan bill. Starting in 2014, most private health policies will
Boy, 11, dies after colliding with bus on bike THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
VANCOUVER, Wash. — Vancouver police say an 11-year-old boy died after colliding with a bus while riding his bicycle. Capt. Scott Willis said the collision happened near downtown Saturday. The boy, identified as Benjamin Fulwiler, had
been riding against the flow of traffic, crossed a street when the bus turned and the two collided. The Columbian reported the impact severed the boy’s left arm. Willis said three bystanders, including an off-duty emergency room nurse, assisted the boy at
the scene. He was found lying at the rear left side of the bus conscious but not responsive. C-Tran spokesman Scott Patterson said there were 10 passengers on board the bus. He said the driver has been placed on administrative leave while the crash is being investigated.
■ CYBERSECURITY, CIVIL LIBERTIES: Voting 248 for and 168 against, the House on Thursday sent the Senate a bill (HR 3523) to expand data-sharing between federal security agencies and private businesses in order to bolster U.S. defenses against cybersecurity attacks from terrorists, foreign governments, rogue hackers, overseas business competitors and others. Named the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), the bill lowers privacy, securityclassification and anti-trust barriers to enable datasharing between the public and private sectors. While the bill’s purpose is to protect computer systems against crippling shutdowns and information thievery, it was criticized as an infringement on privacy rights and other civil liberties. The bill grants immunity from prosecution to companies that share customer data with the government. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Dicks voted yes. ■ V I O L E N C E AGAINST WOMEN ACT: Voting 68 for and 31 against, the Senate on Thursday sent the House a bill (S 1925) to renew the Violence Against Women Act through fiscal 2016 and expand it to cover gay men and undocumented immigrants who are abused by spouses or
■ REPUBLICAN SUBSTITUTE: Voting 37 for and 62 against, the Senate on Thursday defeated a Republican substitute to S 1925 (above). While the GOP plan also
extended coverage to gay men, it was less comprehensive and costly than the underlying bipartisan bill. The substitute differed, in part, by setting mandatory minimum sentences for child pornographers, bolstering the role of U.S. marshals in tracking sex offenders and imposing stricter oversight over Department of Justice funding of anti-violence programs. A yes vote backed the GOP substitute. Cantwell and Murray voted no. ■ RULES FOR UNION ELECTIONS: Voting 45 for and 54 against, the Senate on Tuesday failed to kill a new rule by the National Labor Relations Board that will advance the date of unionorganizing elections by days or weeks. This defeated a GOP measure (SJ Res 36) that sought to quash the rule, which is due to take effect today. Under the rule, elections on whether workers will form into collective-bargaining units could be held as soon as 10 days after the NLRB certifies the election petition, not the usual 35 days or longer. Both sides consider the length of the delay crucial because studies show that when employers gain time to persuade workers to reject unionization, they are more successful, while unions tend to fare better when elections are held promptly. The new rule quickens the election timetable mainly by reducing the number of pre-election hearings and filings and deferring certain challenges until after voting has occurred. Established in 1934, the NLRB is charged with investigating allegations of unfair labor practices by employers and resolving disputes between employees and management over the implementation of labor laws. The five-member board is presidentially appointed and subject to Senate confirmation. A yes vote was to kill the new rule. Cantwell and Murray voted no.

Progress of war written in graffiti AS I WALK around the streets of Beirut, that verse from “The Sounds of Silence” keeps rattling around in my head: “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls, and tenement halls. . . .” There is a highly revealThomas L. ing graffiti war Friedman going on here pitting opponents of Syria’s president, Bashar alAssad, and his Lebanese ally, the Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, on one side and their Lebanese and Syrian supporters on the other. Assad and Nasrallah have long called themselves “the resistance” to Israel, using that to build their legitimacy and to justify arming themselves against their own people. What is stunning to me is how much their masks have now been ripped off by their own people. It is written on the tenement walls around Beirut. The latest collection includes slogans like “The resistance is only resisting our freedom,” or Assad’s picture above the words “Step here” and “The one who kills his own people is a traitor.” Both Assad and Nasrallah
still have their sectarian followers, but outside of that shrinking circle they have lost the aura they cultivated from “resisting Israel.” Now both men stand naked before the Arab world for all to see — one using arms to “resist” the will of many Syrians and the other to “resist” the will of many Lebanese. Their people are no longer afraid to openly mock them. Hanin Ghaddar, a rising young Lebanese Shia journalist, last week wrote an open letter to Nasrallah published by the popular NOWLebanon.com, saying: “You were the brave hero who vanquished the Israeli Army in 2006 and brought dignity back to the Arabs. But you know what? These glorious days are over, and the word ‘dignity’ has now gained a new definition. “It has nothing to do with your sacred arms and glorious victory. It is now about the power of the people on the street and their fight against their dictators. ... “Let us imagine this farfetched scenario. When the uprising broke out in Syria, let’s say you came out in full support of freedom, or at least clearly asked the Syrian regime to refrain from using violence against the protesters. “Can you imagine how popu-

Let’s start by putting it in historical context. What is happening in Syria is the first popular movement since the late 19th and early 20th century that has not been animated by foreign policy or anticolonialism or Israel or Britain. Instead, says Paul Salem, the director of the Carnegie Middle East Centre in Beirut, “it is

READERS’ LETTERS, FAXES AND EMAIL
employees of First Step Family Support Center, decided we would visit multiple locations looking for people who might need a book. We started at the [Port Angeles] downtown pier, known as a youth hangout. Many classify these young people as disrespectful “street kids” or “loiterers.” We were treated only with extreme politeness and appreciation, and it was amazing to see the excitement they showed for the books, sharing stories about reading certain titles and finding new ones they wanted to read. The Single Adult Shelter was our next stop, and we were immediately recognized by one of the residents.
They exclaimed “First Step is here!” and were so grateful for the books and that we thought of them in our deliveries. At the Veterans Center, we talked to several men who initially said, “My wife might want one, sure,” but then quickly changed their mind when they found books that they wanted to read themselves. The experience was incredibly special. We heard dozens of stories and met some really incredible people, from taxi cab drivers to baseball parents to street kids — all the while putting books into each of their hands. I would encourage everyone to get involved next year — let’s show the world that Port Angeles
cares about adult literacy. Maggie Fricker, Port Angeles
Recognition sought Being a longtime sports sponsor and loving sports, I would like to know why, after the Sequim High School girls’ fastpitch team went 28-0 and won the state championship, the town of Sequim did not or has not put up a sign at both ends of town on Highway 101. If you go to other towns that have won state titles, you will see signs that tell people about it. This is something people like to know as few, if any, high school girls teams have ever gone undefeated the whole season. Del Gott, Sequim
Student loans a national debt crisis A MODERN KNOWLEDGE economy thrives on highly trained workers. The way to get them, obviFroma ously, is through educa- Harrop tion — from basic reading skills for some to mastery of algorithms for others. It thus would seem a basic public good to provide that learning at little or no cost to students, which most advanced countries do. But America has turned posthigh-school education into a taxpayer-subsidized business — a business not unlike real estate at the height of the housing bubble. Think Americans owe a bundle on their credit card balances? They have $693 billion on their plastic, while they owe more than $1 trillion on student loans, according to the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau. Think health costs are out of control? They rose only 150 percent from 1990 through 2011. During that period, the cost of attending a four-year college (not including room and board) soared 300 percent. There is clearly a disconnect between Americans’ stagnating incomes and the rising costs of educating their children. The education bubble will have to burst. Online courses may supply the hatpin. For example, venture capitalists are putting millions into Coursera, a company that provides online college courses for free. Founded by two Stanford University professors, Coursera offers classes taught by professors from Stanford, University of California, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania and Princeton. Other startups, such as Minerva and Udemy, are offering similar high-quality education experiences, though generally not

for college credit. Where is the payoff for investors? Through extras that the students may want to buy. As in the music business, we see an unbundling of product. Rather than buy an entire CD, fans can download this song from artist A and that song from artist B. Likewise, students wanting a solid college education could take this course given at MIT and that course at Michigan. Best of all, they wouldn’t have to cough up the average $119,400 for tuition and fees (many are way higher) needed to spend four years at a private university that sinks millions into presidents’ salaries, profs who don’t teach and charming retreats abroad. Could this model of learning work for high-school grads wanting a trade? Many for-profit technical schools aggressively advertise to suck high-school grads into questionable courses for which the students take on unconscionable debt. Up to half of all student loans
that go under are held by their dropouts and graduates. (The big players include ITT Educational Services and the University of Phoenix.) But from the Ivy League on down, postsecondary education feeds off government grants and taxpayer-backed loans. Economists point to these subsidies as an excuse to raise prices. Meanwhile, the lenders, whether government or private student-loan companies, employ famously brutal techniques to collect. And what’s this doing to our economy? It’s creating a mass of young people sagging under monstrous debt burdens. They are unable to buy a house, much less start a business. If failure to pay back student loans ruins their credit rating, they can’t borrow for anything. As Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics put, “We are creating a zombie generation of young people larded with debt, and, in many cases, dropouts without
any diploma.” This should sound familiar: Like risky mortgages, risky private student loans have been packaged into securities that are sold to the public. Concerns are growing that a pileup of student-loan defaults could imperil these investments. Yes, it’s like the housing bubble all over again. And in its quest to help students obtain education from private sellers, the government has helped spike their price. Either the federal government will change the game or online educators will. Both should be giving it a try.

Washington quarterback Keith Price eyes a player down field in the first half of their spring NCAA football game in Seattle on Saturday.
TORONTO — The Seattle Mariners couldn’t come through in the clutch Sunday, and it cost them. Edwin Encarnacion hit his third home run in three games, Henderson Alvarez won for the first time since August and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Mariners 7-2. The Mariners went 0 for 14 with runners in scoring position and have not won a series north of the border since June 2008. “We didn’t play very well all day,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. “I didn’t feel like we were giving away at bats, but the end result of at bats wasn’t very good.” Jeff Mathis added a two-run homer as Toronto broke open a

second time in 15 major league starts. The right-hander, whose only other victory came at Baltimore last Aug. 31, walked a careerhigh three and struck out one. “We had some good hacks at him but he started changing speeds, started taking something off his fastball,” Figgins said. “I think he saw that we were seeing his pitches and started taking a lot off his fastball.” The Mariners jumped in front early when Figgins drilled Alvarez’s sixth pitch of the game over the wall in right, his second leadoff shot this season.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEATTLE — Cornerback Marcus Peters leveled wide receiver James Johnson, blowing up a would-be screen play, then strutted on the field. That encapsulated Washington’s spring game on Saturday. The defense dominated a hybridstyle spring game, winning 36-10 in front of 11,802 at sunny CenturyLink Field. A lack of healthy offensive linemen forced Washington to invoke a scoring system that credited the defense with three points for each stop, and used the normal offensive scoring rules. Washington was not able to split into two full teams, ran a small portion of the playbook, and sprinkled in entertainment for the fans between quarters. When there was action, it was controlled by the Huskies’ defense under new coordinator Justin Wilcox. Defensive lineman Andrew Hudson led the team with six tackles. But, it was the secondary that made numerous plays. Peters’ big hit was complemented by knocked down passes from Greg Ducre and stout coverage by cornerback Tre Watson. Wilcox has shifted Washington into more of a 3-4 defense.
PORT ANGELES — Ace Easton Napiontek went the distance, striking out nine in seven innings, to spark Port Angeles to a crucial 8-1 baseball victory over Bremerton. That sets up a showdown today for second place in the Olympic League between the Roughriders and their archrival, Sequim. The two teams play at Civic Field starting at 4 p.m. If the Wolves win, it will create a tie for second. A Riders victory would give Port Angeles second outright and a shot at a share for first if league-leading North Kitsap loses its final two games. The Knights, meanwhile, beat the Roughriders 7-3 behind their ace, Eli Fultz (7-0), on Friday in a regularly scheduled Olympic League game at Bremerton, and then the Riders turned around and smashed the Knights 8-1 in a makeup game at Civic Field on Saturday behind their ace, Napiontek (4-1).
KEITH THORPE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Port Angeles’ Marcus Konopaski attempts to bunt in the third inning against Bremerton on Saturday at Port Angeles Civic Field.
Free to play A common theme from the spring and after Saturday’s dressed-up practice was that Wilcox’s approach has freed defenders. “We’ve got a lot of young guys out there running around, it takes a little more of the thinking out,” senior safety Justin Glenn said. “More of just letting us play.” The Huskies recorded seven sacks Saturday. That number comes with the caveat that there was no tackling to complete a sack. Once quarterbacks Keith Price or Derrick Brown were touched, the whistle blew to stop play. Regardless, getting there is progress for the maligned defense that finished 11th in the Pac-12 last season in scoring and total defense. Wilcox set three goals at the start of April when he was first able to get his hands on the team. “First thing was, we really want to develop our brand,” Wilcox said. “And that was generally speaking, who we are not only schematically, installing a new defense, but what we’re about. When people turn on the TV, what do they say about that team on the field. “We wanted to improve our tackling. I think that’s any defense. You have to be a good tackling defense. You can cover people and you can fit the runs, but if you can’t get them on the ground, it doesn’t matter. “And the third thing was to play mentally quick. I think that comes with a little bit of repetition and confidence.” TURN

PORT ANGELES — Swain’s General Store narrowly beat Elks by scoring two runs in the bottom of the sixth for a win in Cal Ripken baseball competition last Monday. Cyler McBride kept Swain’s in the game with a two-run homer, and finished off the game with a strong performance on the mound. The game featured strong pitching on both sides, and it took a bunt by Gabe Wegener to tie the game with the winning run scoring on an error on the same play. Trenton Tetter and Ian Miller led the way for Elks with each hitting a triple. On Thursday, Swain’s finished the week on a strong note by beating Eagles 11-7. Strong pitching and a three-run homer by Gabe Wegener helped Swain’s get through a shaky defensive night. For Eagles, Joel Wood may have had one of the season’s best plays when he crashed against the backstop to catch a foul ball.

Cristion had a single, double and triple, just a home run from the cycle. She also pitched the complete game, striking out eight KONP batters. KONP was led by Tori Kuch, who had two doubles, and Rachel Eastey with two hits. Taylor Galland had a single.
Labor Council wins PORT ANGELES — Olympic Labor Council defeated Paint and Carpet Barn 11-3 in North Olympic softball play Saturday morning. Kennedy Cameron pitched three innings of nohit ball for OLC, holding Paint scoreless, before leaving with a 5-0 lead. In the top of the fourth inning, PCB scored three runs following a leadoff walk and a single by Sierra Wilson. OLC responded in the bottom half of the inning with six runs on six hits. Gillian Elofson, Mikayla Ramey and Sierra Robinson got their first hits of the season and Halaina Ferguson and Lauren Lunt both hit doubles. Summer Olsen played tough defense at second base for Paint, stopping several OLC players before they reached first. Olympic Labor Council’s pitching, which recorded 10 strikeouts while giving up only two hits, proved too tough for Paint and Carpet Barn. Peninsula Daily News
