OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The public is invited to mix and match elements of four preliminary alternatives outlined for managing wilderness in Olympic National Park. Park staff are seeking public input on preliminary alternatives for the park’s
Comment can be made in person at meetings in Port Angeles and Forks this week and in Port Townsend next week. Comments also can be made in writing by mail or online by May 17. One alternative for the plan is obligatory. Alternative A is to make no changes in current practices, a most unlikely
choice for the park’s preferred option. The public can focus on any part of the remaining three alternatives, according to Barb Maynes, park spokeswoman. “All are alternatives. We have not selected any as preferred,” she said. “The preferred alternative we end up with may include elements of each of B, C and D.” None of the options have price tags as yet. Detailed descriptions of them are at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/olymwild. To summarize the options: ■ Alternative B would emphasize minimizing the human footprint on wilderness areas by reducing infrastructure constructed in the park. TURN
BOISE, Idaho — A 31-year-old woman sentenced to life in prison for an attack on a Port Townsend woman she has always said she took no part in has been released from prison after serving nearly 12 years. Sarah Pearce was freed Friday after 3rd District Court Judge Juneal Kerrick granted post-conviction relief and amended Pearce’s 2003 sentence to time served after a compromise deal between Canyon County prosecutors and attorneys with the Idaho Innocence LeBrane Project. “This is a tragic misidentification,” Pearce told Kerrick. “I did not commit this crime, but all the same I was punished for it. “The experience goes almost too deep for words. “I will try to walk away from this taking more from it than it has taken from me.” Pearce was one of four Pearce people convicted in the roadside kidnapping, beating and stabbing of Linda LeBrane, a Port Townsend woman left to die alongside her car after it was set on fire. LeBrane was driving through Idaho on Interstate 84 in June 2000, headed from her home to her family cabin in Utah, when she was forced from the road.
Mixed results come for Peninsula politicians Session produces victories and defeats BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIA — The 60-day legislative session that ended last Thursday at midnight produced both triumphs and disappointments for the North Olympic Peninsula’s three elected leaders. Legislators walked away from the state Capitol with a bipartisan state supplemental budget, and the 24th District’s senator, one of the chamber’s longest-serving members, was in the thick of budget discussions right up until the end. “[The] number one goal for me was getting it done in 60 days,
after six months last year,” said state Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, referring to last year’s marathon combination of one regular session and two special sessions that lasted into June. The $155 million supplemental operating budget passed 85-13 in the state House and 48-1 in the Senate last week, a margin in both chambers Hargrove said is almost unheard of. “I think the two highest vote totals ever, I think in anybody’s memory,” said Hargrove, who has served in the state Senate for 21 years, preceded by eight years in the House.
Hargrove said he’s satisfied with the $58 million the supplemental budget sets aside for the state’s obligations under the McCleary decision, a 2012 state Supreme Court ruling named for a Chimacum resident that mandates the state fully fund basic education by 2018.
Education down payment Hargrove added, however, he ideally would have liked to see more money raised toward the estimated $1½ billion to $2 billion per biennium the state will have to raise for education, a sentiment echoed by his colleagues in the state House. “Some of us would have liked to make a little larger down pay-
ment on that obligation,” said Rep. Steve Tharinger, D-Sequim. Tharinger and Hargrove, along with Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim serve the 24th Legislative District, which comprises Clallam and Jefferson counties and a portion of Grays Harbor County. Van De Wege said Friday he would have liked to see some longstanding state tax exemptions, such as a 90-year-old break for oil companies related to transferring the resource, deleted to help raise more money for education. The supplemental operating budget did not close any existing tax preferences, Hargrove explained, nor did it create any new ones.

Death of ‘12 Years’ author still a mystery HISTORIANS KNOW WHERE Solomon Northup was born, where he lived and where he worked. They know whom he married and how many children he had. They know he played the fiddle and spent 12 years enslaved in the South before being freed. What historians don’t know about the author of 12 Years a Slave is when and how he died and where he is buried. It’s a lingering mystery in the final chapter of the life of the 19th-century free-born African-American whose compelling account of enforced slavery in preCivil War Louisiana was made into the Oscar-winning film of the same title. “That’s sort of a big blank spot in the story, for sure,” said Rachel Seligman, co-author of Solomon Northup: The Complete Story of the Author of Twelve Years a Slave, published last year. This month, “12 Years A Slave” took home the Academy Awards for best picture, best adapted screenplay and best supporting actress. The accolades have sparked new interest in Northup’s story, which was little known until recent years even in the upstate New York communities where he spent most of his life. Northup was born July 10, 1807, in what is now the Essex County town of Minerva, N.Y., in the Adirondack Mountains. His father, a former slave, moved the family to neighboring Washington County, eventually settling in the village of Fort Edward, on the Hudson River 40 miles north of Albany. Northup married Anne Hampton in the late 1820s, and the couple lived in an 18th-century house in Fort Edward that is now a museum. Northup found work as

A Solomon Northup historical marker is seen in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Northup was the author of “Twelve Years a Slave.” a musician, and in 1841, two white men lured him to Washington, D.C., with the promise of more work. Instead, they kidnapped him and took him to New Orleans, where he was sold into slavery. Northup endured the next 12 years enslaved on a Louisiana cotton plantation before friends in Saratoga finally won his freedom. In 1853, he published a memoir of his ordeal that led to a speaking tour supported by abolitionists. He got involved in the Underground Railroad, helping escaped slaves find freedom in the Northeast and Canada. But around 1863, the height of the Civil War, he dropped out of sight and was never heard from again. Theories abound about what may have happened to him. One scenario has him being captured and killed while serving as a spy for the Union Army. The man who helped rescue him said he believed Northup had taken to drink and was kidnapped yet again. Or Northup could have died in a place where no one knew him or cared to properly bury an AfricanAmerican at a time when a war over slavery was tearing the nation apart. “He may have just wandered around from place to place and died somewhere nobody knew who he was,
and he was buried in a potter’s field,” said David Fiske, co-author of the 2013 Northup book along with Union College professor Clifford Brown.
Winfrey sells Harpo Oprah Winfrey is selling Harpo Studios in Chicago to a developer, but the studio will remain on the property for another two years. Winfrey filmed “The Oprah Winfrey Show” at the studio from 1990 to 2011, when Winfrey she ended the talk show to start the Oprah Winfrey Network on cable. “We have entered into a purchasing agreement with Sterling Bay for the fourbuilding Harpo Studios campus in Chicago’s West Loop,” Harpo told Crain’s Chicago Business in a statement. “We expect the transaction to be closed in 30 days. The property will be leased back to Harpo for two years and the studio will continue to produce programming for OWN.” About 200 people work at the 3.5-acre campus, which will sell for about $32 million, Crain’s reported Sunday. Harpo said it expects to close the transaction in 30 days.

MITCH LEIGH, 86, the Tony Award-winning composer of “Man of La Mancha,” died Sunday, according to The New York Times. Born Jan. 30, 1928, in Brooklyn, N.Y., Mr. Leigh first penned incidental music for Mr. Leigh the Broadin 2013 way productions of “Too True to Be Good” in 1963 and “Never Live Over a Pretzel Factory” in 1964.

1939 (75 years ago) Two media through which the new Olympic National Park is receiving widespread publicity was being displayed locally by the Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce. The park is mentioned prominently in a striking two-page advertisement in the Saturday Evening Post. The magazine ad is sponsored by the Washington State Progress Commission, Oregon State Highway Commission and the British Columbia Travel Bureau. In addition, the new Washington state roadmap issued by the Texas Oil Co., or Texaco, is the first roadmap issued publicly that shows the outline of the new park. The map shows how the Olympic Highway, Primary State Highway 9, loops around the national park, outlined in green.
1964 (50 years ago) The National Bank of Commerce of Seattle outbid two North Olympic Peninsula firms for the purchase of $65,000 Clal-
lam County general-obligation bonds during a county commissioners meeting. The bonds were sold to cover the county’s share of funds to construct a new bridge to replace the old lower Dungeness River bridge. Commissioners then authorized county engineers to call for construction bids.
1989 (25 years ago) Another player jumped into the political fray over timber supplies and the northern spotted owl when a new pro-industry group drew more than 80 people to the Vern Burton Center in Port Angeles for a formation meeting. It was a public send-off for the North Olympic Timber Action Committee, a Port Angeles group that plans to fight political and environmental moves to reduce logging on forestlands on the Olympic Peninsula. The group is the result of discussions by officials of the Port of Port Angeles and the local timber industry.

Final words from plane came after systems were silenced BY CHRIS BRUMMITT AND JIM GOMEZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The final words from the missing Malaysian jetliner’s cockpit gave no indication anything was wrong, even though one of the plane’s communications systems had already been disabled, officials said Sunday, adding to suspicions that one or both of the pilots were involved in the disappearance. Authorities also examined a flight simulator confiscated from the home of one of the pilots and dug through the background of all 239 people on board, as well as the ground crew that serviced the plane. The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 took off from Kuala Lumpur
on March 8, headed to Beijing. On Saturday, the Malaysian government announced findings that strongly suggested the plane was deliberately diverted and may have flown as far north as Central Asia or south into the vast reaches of the Indian Ocean.
Turned off after 40 minutes Investigators have said someone on board the plane first disabled one of its communications systems — the Aircraft and Communications Addressing and Reporting System, or ACARS — about 40 minutes after takeoff. The ACARS equipment sends information about the jet’s engines and other data to the airline. Around 14 minutes later, the transponder that identifies the
plane to commercial radar systems was also shut down.
Deliberate move? The fact that both systems went dark separately offered strong evidence that the plane’s disappearance was deliberate. On Sunday, Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said at a news conference that the final, reassuring words from the cockpit — “All right, good night” — were spoken to air traffic controllers after the ACARS system was shut off. Whoever spoke did not mention any trouble on board. Air force Maj. Gen. Affendi Buang told reporters he did not know whether it was the pilot or co-pilot who spoke to air traffic controllers.

A RESCUE WORKER dangling from a helicopter plucked a stranded dog from a Northern California seaside cliff. The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department reported Sunday that a black Labrador named Oreo couldn’t get back up after it made its way halfway down a 90-foot cliff at Portugese Beach, about 70 miles north of San Francisco. After the scared dog refused entreaties to climb back up, the decision was made to dangle a sheriff’s deputy about 100-feet below a helicopter. The dangling deputy was able to attach a rope to the dog’s harness and pull it to safety.
THE LOS ANGELES Police Department is getting a Lamborghini. But don’t expect to see the exotic Italian sports car — decked out with police decals and painted black and white — pursuing fugitive drivers down the city’s freeways.

SPRING IS JUST days away, but winter is not leaving quietly. Much of the East Coast enjoyed spring-like temperatures Saturday.

Parts of Virginia and West Virginia could receive up to 10 inches of snow. Rain and thunderstorms are expected in the Southeast, some of which could be strong. Winter-weary people are hoping this is winter’s final encore.

PORT TOWNSEND — City government is addressing the marijuana legalization process on two fronts: the regulation of cultivation and production facilities and the location of the town’s only retail pot store. The Port Townsend Planning Commission heard Thursday an update on the potential siting of growing and processing businesses within the city limits as well as an update as to where the city’s sole retailer may be located. The commission has scheduled a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. March 27 in council chambers at City Hall, 540 Water St., to collect input about land use and regulations.

PORT ANGELES — A 43-year-old Port Angeles man has been arrested for investigation of selling heroin on four days in 2012, Olympic Narcotics Enforcement Team supervisor Jason Viada said. Kevin L. Caynor was booked into the Clallam County jail Friday on investigation of four counts of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance. He was arrested in an OPNET search of a residence on the 2900 block of Vinup Street just east of Port Angeles, Viada said. His brother, Ennis N. Caynor, 37, also of Port Angeles, faces drug charges for allegedly selling methamphetamine twice in December 2012, Viada said.
Ennis Caynor is awaiting court proceedings related to separate cases involving heroin, methamphetamine and a stolen motor vehicle, Viada said. Kevin and Ennis Caynor are each being held in the Clallam County jail without bail. Meanwhile, 50-year-old Thomas A. Reina of Sequim was arrested Dec. 31 for investigation of possession of heroin with intent to deliver. He was awaiting a 2011 case in which OPNET alleged that he sold Oxycodone in March and April of 2011, Viada said.
Meth sentencing In another OPNET case, Patricia J. Sullivan, 52, of Belfair was sentenced to 20 months in prison Feb. 13 for possession and delivery of methamphet-
amine in Port Ludlow and Port Hadlock last May and June, Viada said. Terri L. Turner, 55, of Port Townsend received a 90-day jail sentence Feb. 7 for conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine and two counts of methamphetamine possession, Viada said. She was arrested in Port Townsend last September during an OPNET investigation. Susan M. Smith, 47, of Port Townsend was sentenced to one day in jail and one year probation after pleading guilty to methamphetamine possession, Viada said. Mark J. Pierce, 44, of Port Hadlock was sentenced to two years probation Jan. 24 after pleading guilty in Jefferson County Superior Court to two counts of selling methamphetamine, Viada said.
Briefly . . . Boat-bottom regulations talk slated PORT TOWNSEND — The Point Wilson Sail and Power Squadron will present “Facts, Benefits and Challenges of New BottomPaint Regulations” at the Port Townsend Yacht Club, across from West Marine on Washington Street, at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The program is free and open to all. Matt Elder of Sea Marine will explain the benefits and challenges for recreational boaters as new bottom-paint regulations are implemented.

“Things are changing so quickly, so I won’t speculate about what action they might take,” he said. “A lot of it has to do with the definition of a park, as some city owned land that is referred to as a park may not fall under those standards.” Applicants for retail licenses were initially to be vetted by the Liquor Control Board before entering a lottery, but that changed, according to Forrest Thomson, owner of Herbal Access. “They were so overwhelmed that they decided to hold the lottery first and check people out later,” Thomson said. With the presumed disqualification of the six properties and McBride’s decision to not pursue the matter, Thomson could win the lottery by default. A moratorium on the establishment of any marijuana related business outside of the business district is in effect until August. That could be rescinded by the council once guidelines are established. Jefferson County officials are using present zoning laws to consider pot businesses. The governments of Clallam County, Port Angeles and Forks have yet to make any rules regarding marijuana, while the Sequim City Council has a moratorium on recreational marijuana shops.

More than one-third of all hospital readmissions for the elderly are for COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). By preventing acute flareups, trips to the hospital can be decreased. We encourage patients to quit smoking, avoid second hand smoke, get flu and pneumococcal vaccines, and stay hydrated by consuming lots of water per day. Inhalers are an essential part of therapy for COPD and good inhaler technique is critical to the success of the therapy. Too many people just spray the inhaler into the mouth then inhale. Ask our pharmacist for further instructions. Patients who have persistent symptoms can use a daily long-acting bronchodilator (like tiotropium or salmeterol) to help to keep symptoms under control, plus a short-acting inhaler (such as albuterol) as needed to relieve symptoms should they occur. Early signs of exacerbations include more significant shortness of breath, change in sputum color, or higher sputum volume. Patients should call their doctors if these symptoms occur. It’s important for patients with COPD to use the same pharmacy consistently so that their meds can be monitored.
While eight retail licenses are currently under consideration, the most likely location is Herbal Access at 2427 W. Sims Way, which is now operating as a medical marijuana dispensary. Of the rest, six are apparently ineligible while the seventh, Green House at 1230 W. Sims Way near QFC, will not open because of refinancing issues. “We were ready to go and were within the boundaries, but I was told by my bank they would not refinance the property if it contained a marijuana business,” said Ken McBride, who owns the property. “It’s ironic how this was made legal, approved by the voters, and they pull the rug out from under us.” The state Liquor Control Board is implementing the statewide initiative voters approved in November 2012 that legalized and regulated the growing, processing and distribution of marijuana to adults 21 and older. The state has allotted areas with certain numbers of retail stores. Growers and possessors are not limited in the same way. Jefferson County will get four retail cannabis stores: one in Port Townsend and three anywhere else. Neighboring Clallam County is allowed a maximum of six retail stores: two in Port Angeles, one in Sequim and three anywhere else. The Liquor Control Board said it has 34 pending license applications that are listed with a Port Townsend mailing address, although not all are within the city limits. This includes 12 for production, 13 for processing and nine potential retailers. One of the proposed retailers, Sea Change Cannabis at 282332 U.S. Highway 101, is located in Discovery Bay. Of the remainder, two locations seem to fulfill siting requirements while the
rest most likely will be disqualified because of their proximity to parks and schools. State law requires a 1,000 foot buffer between those areas and any marijuana business. Two locations now operating as medical facilities apparently do not qualify because of their proximity to parks: the Townsend Herbal Collective at 1139 Water St., and the Alternative Clinic at 1433 W. Sims Way. Two locations originally thought to be allowed — 803 N. Park St. and 2328 E. Sims Way, the former home of Akamai Art Supply — were disqualified because of their proximity to Jefferson County Mental Health at 884 W. Park St., since it qualifies as a school, according to John McDonough, a senior planner for the city. This newly discovered restriction rules out the location of any marijuana enterprise in the business park, McDonough said. While confirming these assessments of the property, McDonough said he would not speculate which properties would be approved or rejected by the liquor control board.

Students to talk climate on D.C. train trip BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — With 10 days to go, the Students for Sustainability are getting ready to hop on a cross-country train to travel to Washington, D.C., and work to raise consciousness about global warming along the way. “This is a huge issue,” said Harry Doyle, 17, one of the 14 Port Townsend High School seniors making the trip. Students plan to leave on March 27 and return on April 7. “The idea that we will be responsible for change is a little unrealistic, but it’s all about the small voices coming together making a large push. “So if we see a change in the future, we can say that we were a part of it.” The trip is projected to cost about $25,000. Students have raised $19,000.
Fundraiser today Their last fundraiser is set at 7 p.m. today. A benefit showing of “A Place at the Table,” a movie about food insecurity, will be in the Port Townsend High School auditorium, 1500 Van Ness St. Admission is free, but donations are accepted. They also are raising money on Indiegogo at http://tinyurl.com/ PDN-sustainabilitytrain in a campaign that started Jan. 31 and ends Thursday. As the train travels through 12 states, one student will be in charge of each state, contacting schools, newspapers and legislators and gathering signatures for petitions expressing concern about sustainability and

The train will make 55 stops, where the students will step off the train to make their case with the locals. Some of these stops will be in the wee hours. Students hope to generate interest in midnight environmental rendezvous. Once they reach D.C., students plan to present petitions signed by their own constituents, said Laura Tucker, one of three chaperones.
A meeting has been scheduled with Pennsylvania Democrat Sen. Robert Casey, as well as with some of the Washington state delegation: Sen. Patty Murray, D-Whidbey Island; Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Mountake Terrace, and Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, whose 6th Congressional District includes the North Olympic Peninsula. The students hope to talk with President Barack Obama. That isn’t out of the question, but is pretty unlikely, Tucker said.
He added that he sees a correlation between conservative Christian groups and global warming deniers. “But Christians are morally strong so we can appeal to that,” the student said. “We’ll ask them how they feel about the future and whether they want their descendants to experience drought and severe weather disasters. “I can’t believe that some people don’t see this as an issue because it’s all about our future, quite literally.” The Students for Sustainability began gathering last year but chose not to become an official school club “because they didn’t want to be told what to do and how to do it,” Tucker said. This year, the group has become official, seeking to use the school’s fundraising infrastructure to make contributions taxdeductible, support the upcoming trip and perhaps make the student lobbying trip to Washington, D.C., an annual event, she added. The guiding principle for the club, which now has 40 members, is to take action to mitigate climate changes at school, in the community, in the state and on a national level. The club also encourages recycling and efficiency. “The response from the community has been overwhelming, both financially and personally,” Tucker said. “This support has really inspired us.”
The students will go to the White House, she said. They have a meeting set with the Presidential Council on Environmental Quality. The students want to schedule meetings with some of those who have voted against their concerns. Doyle said the students have studied the positions of everyone ________ they will meet and will bring up their positive votes cast even if Jefferson County Editor Charlie Bertheir voting record is not mant can be reached at 360-385-2335 or email@example.com. environmentally favorable.

The bill would grade commanders on their record of preventing or dealing with assaults in their ranks; require victims to be advised of the relative merits of pressing military vs. civilian charges; limit the “good soldier” defense and require the secretary of defense and attorney general to jointly address the scourge of sexual attacks on those in uniform. In addition, the bill would extend to the service academies several provisions already in law to protect active-duty troops, including the appointment of special counsels to help assault victims navigate the military legal system and the outlawing of retaliation against those who report sexual misconduct. A yes vote was to send the bill to the House, where its prospects are uncertain. Cantwell and Murray voted yes. ■ CHILD CARE AND DEVELOPMENT: Voting 96 for and two against, the Senate on Thursday passed a bipartisan bill (S 1086) to renew the Child Care and Development Block Grant law at an average annual cost of $2.62 billion between fiscal 2015-2019. Enacted in 1990 during the administration of President George H.W. Bush, the law authorizes programs for a projected 1.6 million children from low-income families in after-school hours while their parents are at work.
Parents use state-provided vouchers to pay for care at a facility of their choice. The bill requires states to conduct regular health and safety inspections of facilities and background checks on staff members, among other safeguards. A yes vote was to send the bill to the House, where its prospects are uncertain. Cantwell and Murray voted yes. ■ FLOOD-INSURANCE PREMIUMS: Voting 72 for and 22 against, the Senate on Thursday passed a bill (HR 3370) to cap National Flood Insurance Program premium increases at 18 percent per year per property. This would roll back free-market reforms enacted in 2012 to trim the program’s debt, which stands at $24 billion due largely to covering damages from hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Sandy in 2012. The bill also would repeal a trigger in the 2012 law that subjects newly sold properties to premiums based on risk rather than subsidies. Serving a market shunned by private insurers, the NFIP covers 5.6 million residential and commercial properties in flood plains in 22,000 U.S. communities. A yes vote was to send the bill to President Obama. Cantwell and Murray voted yes.

The bill would repeal Medicare’s so-called Sustainable Growth Rate formula while giving Congress time to replace it with a more effective Medicare reimbursement policy. The bill’s delay of the individual mandate would cause 13 million Americans to lose their health insurance and raise premiums by 10-to-20 percent for those receiving coverage in ACA exchanges, according to the Congressional Budget Office. A yes vote was to reform Medicare-reimbursement policies while gutting the 2010 health law. Kilmer voted no.

Pearce is 5 feet 6 inches tall, doesn’t date men, was 17 at the time and doesn’t speak Spanish. The Idaho Innocence Project also said that 30

minutes after a witness claimed to have spotted Pearce at a motel with the three men, a group matching the attackers’ descriptions — three Hispanic men and a Hispanic woman in a maroon car — used the victim’s stolen credit card 60 miles away in Jordan Valley, Ore. “We think it was a case of mistaken identity pure and simple, with tragic consequences,” said Greg Hampikian, director of the Idaho Innocence Project. Bryan Taylor, Canyon County prosecutor, in a statement said Friday’s post-conviction relief deal confirms Pearce’s guilt, “which has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt and to the satisfaction of a jury of her peers. “More importantly, it reaffirms that the only
truly innocent person in this sad story of senseless violence is Linda LeBrane.” Kerrick, who sentenced Pearce in 2003, said the case has been difficult. She noted LeBrane’s certainty in identifying Pearce but also numerous questions about the accuracy of that identification. She also noted that Pearce has been in prison longer than the 10 years prosecutors offered her during her initial trial in exchange for a guilty plea, which Pearce declined. “If in fact you did not commit these crimes,” Kerrick told Pearce, “then one day [in prison] was too many. So there has been tremendous loss on both sides.” Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.

The three faces of Barack Obama BARACK OBAMA IS surely the first president to be Thomas L. accused of actFriedman ing in foreign policy like Pollyanna, John Wayne and Henry Kissinger in the same month. Ever since Russian President Vladimir Putin’s land grab in Crimea, conservatives have denounced President Obama as a man who doesn’t appreciate what a merciless, Hobbesian world this really is. He’s a Pollyanna — always looking for people’s good side. Meanwhile, liberals have been hammering Obama for what they say is his trigger-happy drone habit, having ordered the targeted killing by air of hundreds of individuals; he’s John Wayne, seeking vigilante justice against those who have harmed, or might be planning to harm, the United States. And, just to round things out, Obama has been accused by critics on the left and right of being a Kissingerian hyperrealist who is content to watch the Syrian regime crush its people, because, as tragic as that is, American interests there are minimal. It can’t be easy being Pollyanna, John Wayne and Henry Kissinger all at once. So who is Obama — really — on foreign policy? I’d say less Pollyanna than his critics claim, more John Wayne and Henry Kissinger than he’d admit, but still undefined when it
comes to the greatest leadership challenges in foreign policy — which go beyond Crimea but lurk just over the horizon. If Obama has been a reluctant warrior in Crimea, it’s because it’s long been part of Russia and home to a Russian naval base, with many of its people sympathetic to Russia. Obama was right to deploy the limited sanctions we have in response to Putin’s seizure of Crimea and try to coolly use diplomacy to prevent a wider war over Ukraine — because other forces are at play on Putin. Do not underestimate how much of a fool Putin made of himself in Crimea this weekend — in front of the whole world — and how much this will blow back on Russia, whose currency and stock markets are getting hammered as a result of Vladimir’s Crimean adventure. Putin has organized, basically overnight, a secession referendum on Crimea’s future — without allowing any time for the opposition to campaign. It was held under Russian military occupation, in violation of Ukraine’s Constitution, with effectively two choices on the ballot: “Vote 1 if you want to become part of Russia,” or “Vote 2 if you really want to become part of Russia.” This is not the action of a strong, secure leader. And if Obama has been a Kissingerian realist in his reluctance to dive into the Syrian civil war, or Ukraine, it’s because he has learned from Iraq and Afghanistan that the existence of bad guys in these countries doesn’t mean that their opponents are all good guys.
Too many leaders in all these countries turned out to be more interested in using their freedom to loot rather than liberate. Where authentic reformers emerge in Syria or Ukraine we should help them, but, unlike Sen. John McCain, most Americans are no longer willing to be suckers for anyone who just sings our song (see dictionary for Hamid Karzai), and they are now wary of owning the bailouts and gas bills of countries we don’t understand. As for John Wayne Obama, “the quickest drone in the West,” every American president needs a little of that in today’s world, where you now have legions of superempowered angry people who wish America ill and who have access to rockets and live in ungoverned spaces. So I have no problem with Obama as John Wayne or Henry Kissinger. If you want to criticize or praise him on foreign policy, the real tests fall into two categories: ■ How good is he at leading from behind on Ukraine? ■ How good is he at leading from in front on Russia, Iran and China? There is probably no saving Crimea from Putin in the short term, but we do not want to see him move beyond Crimea and absorb the parts of eastern Ukraine where the Russophones reside. We should be ready to offer arms to the Ukraine government to prevent that. But let us never lose sight of the fact that the key to keeping more of Ukraine out of Russia’s paws will depend on the ability of Ukrainians to come
Peninsula Voices Warming ‘doubts’ In spite of rhetoric to the contrary, the “scientific community” has not “already settled the climate-change question” (Peninsula Voices, March 12, “Climate change”). Many qualified scientists have sincere doubts that global warming is actually occurring at this time, that the human contribution to greenhouse gases is anything other than insignificant, or that if global warming were occurring, it would be generally a bad thing.
As of March 12, 2014, there were 31,487 Americans with bachelor’s degrees or higher who signed the following statement, including 9,029 with doctorates, according to www.petitionproject.org: “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. “Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence
that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.” An article in the Jan. 27, 2012 Wall Street Journal signed by 16 eminent scientists casts considerable doubt on the currently popular “consensus” as follows: “Speaking for many scientists and engineers who have looked carefully and independently at the science of climate, we have a message to any candidate
together in a way that is inclusive of both the majority that sees its future with the European Union and the minority of Russophones who still feel some affinity for Russia. If the Ukraine drama pits a united Ukraine — seeking a noncorrupt democracy tied to Europe — against a Putin trying to forcibly reintegrate Ukraine into a Russian empire, Putin loses. But if Ukrainians are divided, if hyper-nationalist parties there dominate and pro-Russians are alienated, Putin will discredit the Ukraine liberation movement and use the divisions to justify his own interventions. Then our help will be useless. We can’t help them if they won’t help themselves. Ukrainians have already wasted a quarter-century not getting their act together the way Poland did. The big three issues where Obama must lead from the front are: changing the character of Russia’s government, preventing Iran from getting a nuke and preventing a war in the South China Sea between Beijing and Tokyo. (I will save China and Iran for later.) But regarding Russia, I vehemently opposed NATO expansion because I held the view then, and hold it today, that there is no big geopolitical problem that we can solve without Russia’s cooperation. That requires a Russia that does not define its greatness by opposing us and recreating the Soviet empire, but by unleashing the greatness of its people. It is increasingly clear that that will never be Putin’s Russia, which stands for wholesale corruption, increasing repression and
OUR READERS’ LETTERS, FAXES for public office: There is no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to ‘decarbonize’ the world’s economy. “Even if one accepts the inflated climate forecasts of the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change], aggressive greenhouse-gas control policies are not justified economically.” I would hate to think the public is influenced by the bias of the popular media, whose “ideological rhetoric has overpowered science, facts and common sense,” to use the March 12
a zero-sum relationship with the West. Putin is looking for dignity for Russia now in all the wrong places — and ways. But only Russia’s people can replace Putinism. The way the United States and European Union help, which will take time, is by forging new energy policies that will diminish Europe’s dependency on Russian gas — the mother’s milk of Putinism. But we Americans also have to work harder to make our country a compelling example of capitalism and democracy, not just the world’s cleanest dirty shirt when it comes to our economy and not just the best democracy money can buy when it comes to our politics. The most important thing we could do to improve the prospects of democracy in the world “is to fix our democracy at home,” said Larry Diamond, a democracy specialist at Stanford University. “The narrative of American decline and democratic dysfunction damages the luster of democracy in the world and the decisions of people to feel it is a model worth emulating. “That is in our power to change. If we don’t reform and repair democracy in the United States, it is going to be in trouble globally.” Thomas L. Friedman is a three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The New York Times.

The myth of the ‘childless city’ DISAPPROVING OF WHITE, urban liberals can be a career for right-leaning sociologists. A decade or Froma two ago, their story was that Harrop the American future lay in fast-growing exurban counties, with their cheap land and virtuous Republican voters. Now that many American cities have become the hot, hot, hot place for jobs and ambitions, the story has to be rewritten. “Are cities without children sustainable?” ask Joel Kotkin and Ali Modarres in the culturally conservative City Journal. The answer is easy: Of course they are. Children don’t sustain cities. Adults sustain cities — and suburbs and farms. The article is titled “The
Childless City: It’s hip, it’s entertaining — but where are the families?” It includes a photo of an orgiastic party at a New York nightclub, attended by the casts of “The Real World” and “Jersey Shore.” Right, as if nobody’s getting up at 6 a.m. to put in a long day at the office. One doesn’t have to read too deeply into articles such as this to find the agenda. They portray urban liberals — obsessing on the white ones — as immature, anti-child and self-celebrating. This offers the balm of moral superiority for conservatives vexed to see so many Americans finding economic success amid a progressive worldview. The city has become an entertainment machine, say the authors, “a system built for the newly liberated individual.” I, for one, have no problem with newly liberated individuals, as long as they pay their taxes. Their mode of recreation is

their own business. More to the point, these newly liberated individuals are hardly an invention of the city’s new “self-celebrating” creative class. Holly Golightly was a creature of the 1940s. There were no children and there was much partying in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” A point of concern for meddling cultural conservatives with degrees in social engineering is falling fertility rates. This trend has visited nearly every corner of the earth, but Kotkin and Modarres find it especially troubling in our largest, densest urban areas. They no longer provide the things “families need,” such as more housing space. Of course, large houses with spacious backyards are hard to find, much less afford, in the big city. Why would you expect them in urban America any more than you’d expect palm trees in Minneapolis? One might also question the
“need” for more square footage, a hangover from the McMansion era, as well as the land obsession. Send these guys a subscription to Dwell magazine. It’s time to mention the law of supply and demand. A lot of people want to live in Manhattan and Brooklyn, which is why real estate is expensive there. The amount of land can’t grow. Housing is indeed much cheaper in the big and also culturally rich Texas cities — Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Austin — largely because they are surrounded by big open country. (They, too, have growing hipster neighborhoods dominated by unmarried and/or childless funlovers.) The biggest flaw in “The Childless City” is that it’s not true. The number of white married couples with children younger than 6 in New York City has risen 11 percent over the past decade.

The biggest increases came in the gentrifying neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Kotkin and Modarres should be sentenced to standing stationary in the middle of a Broadway sidewalk on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, as the baby carriages plow their way to the farmers market.

Gonzaga is still a danger in tourney SELECTION SUNDAY A year ago: As expected, Gonzaga, the nation’s top-ranked men’s college basketball team, received the West Region’s No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. It marked an unprecedented Dave height for the Zags and, from a Boling more practical perspective, represented what was expected to be the easiest path to the Final Four. The seeding was a reward for the approach that fueled the historic rise in the first place: battling through a tough nonconference schedule before taking care of business in the West Coast Conference. A year ago at this point, it added up to a 31-2 record. But when they lost their second game of the NCAA tournament to ninth-seeded Wichita State, the Zags were the first top-seeded team to be ousted, and critics snapped that they were unworthy of the lofty rating and seeding. The loss to Wichita State became less of a smudge when the Shockers topped second-seeded Ohio State in the regional finals and pushed eventual champion Louisville to the edge before losing in the national semifinals.
Not Shockers this year That run was a springboard to Wichita State’s undefeated season, and now it’s the Shockers who are likely to receive a No. 1 seed Sunday . . . and the target that comes along with it. Sunday, when the Zags learn their opponent in the field of 68, the discussions will not be about reaching new heights but extending an impressive streak to a new length. By winning the West Coast Conference tournament championship this season, in addition to the regular-season title, the Zags (28-6) have earned their 16th consecutive NCAA tournament bid. Eighth-seeded Gonzaga will face nine-seed Oklahoma State in San Diego on Friday. Only Kansas (25th), Duke (19th) and Michigan State (17th) added to longer streaks. Granted, earning a bid out of the WCC is not the challenge Kansas, Duke and Michigan State face each year. But more than 300 schools are eligible for this tournament, and only three teams have been lacing up their sneakers this time of year for a longer uninterrupted string than Gonzaga. Kansas, Duke and Michigan State. That’s it. Those three, with a combined 37 Final Four appearances. As Gonzaga coach Mark Few said after winning the WCC tournament title game, “It never gets old.” The formula was changed a bit this season, though, with a lowerkey nonconference season, and with a late struggle in the conference that caused the Zags to finish unranked.

Sequim first baseman Alexas Besand, left, looks back at the infield after a first-inning force out of White River’s Kayla Smith.
SEQUIM — Sequim’s softball team had a solid start to its season, dropping White River 4-3. The Wolves were led by a complete-game, four-hit performance from pitcher Makayla Bentz and a 3 for 3 outing at the plate from first baseman Alexas Besand that included a triple and three RBIs. “It was a real solid start for us, Makayla was tough on the mound and Alexas had a great day at the plate,” Sequim coach Mike McFarlen said after Saturday’s win. Some solid glove work by infielders Olivia Kirsch at third
Softball base, Mary Lu Clift at shortstop and Shelby Lott at second base also contributed to the Sequim victory. “We’re pretty good defensively, too,” McFarlen said. The Wolves hopped on the scoreboard first, putting a run across with two outs in the bottom of the third inning. Lott picked up an infield single and Besand then tripled her home with a rocket shot down the first-base line into right field. Sequim struck again in the bottom of the fifth with Besand rapping a single up the middle to score Bentz. Clift then reached base on an infield single and Melissa Lewis came aboard after an error by White River’s Maddie Bailey. TURN
Virginia joins Gators, ’Cats, Shockers as top seeds THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The surprises start right at the top of the NCAA tournament bracket: Virginia is a No. 1 seed. They keep going throughout the matchups. Last year’s national champion, Louisville, was seeded fourth in the Midwest despite playing well enough to be considered a No. 1 by many. And speaking of that Midwest region — Wichita State and Michigan are there, as well, making it three of last year’s Final Four participants all vying for one spot this year. SMU, the team led on a renais-
sance by coaching lifer Larry Brown — nowhere to be found. And Michigan State, the team that geared things up in time to win the Big Ten tournament, is only a No. 4 seed. The tournament begins Tuesday with a pair of First Four games, and things get going in earnest Thursday when 32 of the 64 teams in the main draw take to the floor. As expected, Florida earned the top overall seed and is No. 1 in the South. Undefeated Wichita State is on top in the brutal Midwest, and Arizona took top billing in the West despite losing to
College Basketball UCLA in the Pac-12 final. In the end, the individual matchups mean much more than the seeding details. Still, some of the numbers the selection committee came up with this year were head-scratchers — yet another reason Warren Buffett felt perfectly comfortable fronting the insurance money to pay a $1 billion prize to anyone who can fill out a perfect bracket. Wake Forest athletic director
Ron Wellman, the chairman of the selection committee, said Virginia’s twin ACC championships — regular season and tournament — made the Cavaliers (28-6) the choice for a No. 1 seed over Michigan and Villanova, despite an RPI rating of 11. “Virginia’s total resume was very impressive,” Wellman said. “They continued to impress us throughout the year.” Michigan is a ‘2” in the Midwest and could need to get through Duke, among others, simply to reach the regional final. The top half of the bracket includes Wichita State, Kentucky
and Louisville. The last bubble teams in were Iowa, which plays Tennessee in the First Four on Wednesday; and North Carolina State, which plays Xavier on Tuesday. Sitting out was SMU — a team almost all the experts had securely in the bracket. Not the folks in the conference room, who couldn’t overcome the Mustangs’ strength of schedule: 129. “When I saw Louisville [was a No. 4 seed], I kind of figured that they didn’t have a lot of respect for our conference,” Brown said. “But we only can blame ourselves, that’s the way I look at it.”

Even Robinson Cano’s beans make headlines BY BOB DUTTON MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
PEORIA, ARIZ. — Second baseman Robinson Cano is absent again from the Seattle Mariners on another short, personal hiatus. This time, he’s back in the Dominican Republic to attend to a family matter. Club officials knew about the issue in advance, and manager Lloyd McClendon said Cano is expected to return in time for Tuesday night’s game against San Diego. The trip coincides with the Mariners’ first camp open date today, and minimizes his absence. But it also begs a question: Will Cano find time for another round of broomstick-and-beans before he returns? That story quickly made the rounds early last week after he explained how he honed his batting eye during a four-day recovery from an infection in his mouth that prompted root-canal surgery. Yep, hitting black beans with a broomstick. “I have to keep my eyes on the beans because they’re so little,” he
explained. “You have to follow them all the way. That’s what you want in the game. You want to follow the pitch all the way.” That makes a great image, doesn’t it? And the story got big play. Then again, everything about Cano seems to get big play since he spurned the Yankees by signing a 10-year deal with the Mariners for $240 million. “I love this game,” he explained, “and I didn’t want to sit at home and not do anything. That’s what I THE ASSOCIATED PRESS did the last two days [of his Seattle Mariners’ second baseman Robinson absence].”
Cano hits an RBI-double during a spring game Bean technique worked against the Chicago Cubs last week. In his return to the lineup last Monday, Cano rocked three straight singles. The first two came against Royals ace James Shields. The other was against former All-Star reliever Aaron Crow. Beans and a broomstick. McClendon spent the last seven years as the hitting coach in Detroit but said he’s never heard of that technique. “That’s a pretty good one,” he said. “Maybe I ought to have all of the rest
of players do the same thing.” The broomstick story muted attention from a stir Cano created earlier in spring by seeming to chide the Mariners for not doing more to improve their roster after he agreed to his mega-deal. “I’m not going to lie,” he told CBSSports.com. “We need an extra bat, especially a right-handed bat. We have many left-handed hitters. We need at least one more righty.”
The story attracted scant notice in the Northwest, where the Mariners’ need (and search) for a righthanded bat is well-known. Further, Cano has consistently maintained he’s only a piece of the puzzle. He cited the need for “a lot of good players” on multiple occasions as the only way to “build a good team.” But elsewhere, particularly in New York, it was seen as evidence that discontent had already set in.
When he later dismissed that suggestion, it got lost in the storm. “I don’t want to say that we are close,” Cano said, “but I know we have a team that can compete. We have some good, young talent and some good pitching.” But, yes, like pretty much any player, he’d welcome roster additions that would improve the club.
Not focused on power It is also drawing notice — little doesn’t — that while he is 14 for 23 this spring in nine games, all but two of his hits are singles. That does seem more Ichiro than Cano, who averaged 45 doubles and 28 homers over the last five seasons. Far from a concern, he contends his diminished spring power is by design. “The goal at spring training,” Cano said, “is just to work on my swing. Middle away. I’m not trying to pull or get out front. “Like I always say, ‘I’m not a home run guy.’” He follows this approach in batting practice. Cano’s swing is an easy flick of the wrists toward
the ball, much like a frog snapping its tongue at a bug. It’s rare that he doesn’t make solid contact, although the ball rarely reaches the track. It is, exactly, what McClendon wants to see from everyone at this point. “One of our challenges is to get guys to understand how you take batting practice,” McClendon said, “because, look, this is the only time you have to work on your craft. For me, hitting home runs in BP means nothing. “I want to see the [swing] path. I want to see you staying inside the ball. That’s what I’m trying to get my guys to understand.” All they need to do is watch. “I don’t want to leave training feeling good because the ball is flying here,” Cano said. “It doesn’t count here how many homers you hit here. You just want to get your swing ready for the regular season.” Now, he’s gone again for a few days. That might mean another helping of black beans. Served soft and easy. With a stick.
Allen gets hot late, Heat top Rockets Wolves: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MIAMI — Ray Allen was somewhat surprised to see how open he was. So was Dwyane Wade, who even took an extra dribble before believing his eyes and sending a 50-foot pass to the best 3-point shooter in NBA history. Moments later, the Miami Heat were back on track. Allen scored 14 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter on a milestone day for the veteran, Wade and LeBron James each added 24 points and the Heat closed with a flourish to beat the Houston Rockets 113-104 on Sunday and snap their worst stretch of results since 2011. “When Ray gets into a rhythm, he’s the best 3-point shooter of all-time,” said Heat forward Chris Bosh, who scored 18 points to help Miami win for just the second time in its last seven games. Miami trailed 97-92 fol-
NBA lowing a 3-pointer by James Harden midway through the fourth, then finished the game on a 21-7 run. Allen had 11 points during that late stretch, including a 3-pointer that allowed him to pass Allen Iverson for 21st on the NBA’s scoring list. It was also the 750th regular-season win that Allen was a part of in his career. “I don’t know how I get open,” said Allen, who took about 1,000 shots on a practice day Saturday by Heat coach Erik Spoelstra’s estimate. “When I am, I have to be ready to shoot it.” Harden finished with 30 points for Houston, which got 21 points and 14 rebounds from Dwight Howard. Patrick Beverley added 15 points and Terrence Jones scored 12 for the Rockets, who’ve dropped
three straight. “We just didn’t play well down the stretch,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. And that all started when no one seemed to want to guard Allen. Houston led by five when Wade sparked the late run with a 50-foot assist after a timeout that set up a 3-pointer from the left corner by Allen. “A critical possession,” Wade said. Allen also made three technical-foul free throws to help his late rhythm. One came after a defensive three-second violation, another following Houston’s second delay-of-game whistle on the afternoon, and the third when Beverley was hit with a technical in the final minute. James hit a pair of free throws with 46 seconds left for his first points of the final quarter, and that sealed it for Miami, which moved back within three games of Indiana for the
No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference. Allen now has 24,370 points, two more than Iverson. Afterward, he was all about the win. “Tonight we came out and finished the game,” Allen said, “as opposed to letting it slip away from us.” The first surprise of the day came about 20 minutes before tip-off, when the Heat announced Greg Oden — who appeared in his 100th career game, nearly seven years after being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft — would be starting at center. It was the second start of the season for Oden, who also opened a game against Chicago last month in part because James was unavailable while dealing with a broken nose. Oden had three rebounds in the game’s first three minutes, and the Heat never trailed in the first half, going into the break with a 57-54 lead.

Schmidt recovering from skin cancer THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Mike Schmidt sat down at a picnic table beyond the leftfield wall on a sunny morning at Bright House Field, then scooted over to seek the shade. He wasn’t taking any chances. The 64-year-old Hall of Famer is recovering from an advanced form of
skin cancer that kept him from being a guest instructor with the Philadelphia Phillies in spring training. Schmidt was in camp Sunday and publicly spoke for the first time about his illness — stage 3 melanoma, and the two operations, radiation and chemotherapy treatments that followed.

Keep daughter busy, out of trouble
by Scott Adams
For Better or For Worse
Classic Doonesbury (1971)
Frank & Ernest
DEAR ABBY: My 11-year-old daughter, “Gwen,” just started middle school. She makes good grades, but she’s strong-willed. Do kids grow up instantly when they start middle school? She wants to know if she can have a boyfriend. I told her not until she’s 15. Now she’s flirting with girls who ask her out. I told her to stay away from them, not because they are lesbians but because they are not good girls. They are always in trouble. Gwen says I’m too strict, and if I don’t stop, she will run away. I adopted her at birth (it was an open adoption), and she recently asked me if I am going to place her for adoption. She was worried that I would. I am very concerned that she is hanging out with the wrong crowd. Any advice? San Antonio Mom

How do I respond tactfully, but also convey that they should think twice before they say these things? Upset in Ohio Dear Upset: If someone says you look good, respond as you would to any other compliment — say thank
you. When someone offers a suggestion about how you can “cure” yourself, you’ll save yourself a lot of frustration if you keep in mind that the person cares enough about you to try to be helpful. All you need to do is smile and say firmly that you are under a doctor’s care and are satisfied with the treatment you are receiving. And, heaven forbid, if another individual tells you that your MS is “all in your head,” remember that just because a jackass brays does not mean you have to pay attention. Confidential to My Irish Readers: I received this Irish prayer from a reader. I’m sharing it with you today in honor of St. Patrick’s Day: Take time to work, It is the price of success. Take time to think, It is the source of power. Take time to play, It is the secret of perpetual youth. Take time to read, It is the foundation of wisdom. Take time to be friendly, It is the road to happiness. Take time to love and be loved, It is the privilege of the gods. Take time to share, Life is too short to be selfish. Take time to laugh, Laughter is the music of the soul.

Dennis the Menace
Dear Abby: I am a 29-year-old woman who has just been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It has been a rough road, and I’m lucky to have such a supportive group. My issue is, when people find out, I get comments such as, “Wow, you look so good!” or suggestions on how I should “cure” my MS. The most hurtful one was that it’s all in my head. While I appreciate that folks care and want to offer help, I find their comments offensive and hurtful.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t stir up an emotional situation. Let people come to you. Concentrate on unfinished projects that are weighing you down. A willingness to make adjustments to your plans will open up opportunities to collaborate with someone who has something worthwhile to offer. 3 stars
Rose is Rose
Dear Mom: People do not grow up “instantly.” I know individuals who are immature at 50, and I’m sure if you think about it, so do you. From what you have told me about your daughter, it’s clear that she is far from the grown-up she thinks she is. If you do not to want Gwen to date until she is older, that is your prerogative as her parent. The gender of the person isn’t the issue. Because you think she is hanging out with the wrong crowd, my advice is to make sure she is so busy she doesn’t have time to spend with them. Involve her in activities outside of school — sports, scouting, music or art. And be sure she knows that you are her forever mother and that nothing she could ever do will lessen your love for her.

SportsRecreation Mathematicians hoping their calculations add up to perfect NCAA tourney bracket PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
BY MARY PILON THE NEW YORK TIMES
Typically, when the worlds of math and sports collide, name calling, noogies and maybe even a wedgie follow. But that was not the case Thursday night at the National Museum of Mathematics in Manhattan, where 50 would-be mathematicians huddled in a windowless classroom to harness the power of linear algebra and complex computer codes to predict the outcome of each of the 67 games in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. They weren’t there just for the love of the equation. “There are a billion reasons to be here tonight,” said Tim Chartier, a math professor at Davidson College, who was leading the event, called March (Mo) Mathness. He was referring to the contest with the $1 billion prize offered by Quicken Loans (and insured by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway) for a perfect bracket. To reach Chartier’s room at the museum, the crowd opened doors with handles shaped like the symbol for pi. Once assembled, Chartier said that theirs was no easy task. He estimated that the odds of picking every winner were one in
nine quintillion. “But there is a chance,” he said. On Sunday, the NCAA released the matchups for its biggest tournament. Chartier was preparing the eager students, who paid as much as $100 at the door, to get a leg up on other sports fans with his first public, in-depth presentation of the mathematical models he uses for choosing winners. In 2009, Chartier and his Davidson students began developing a bracket program that quickly yielded remarkable results, even though many of the participants had no interest in college basketball. The program can be adjusted for losses early and late in the season, as well as for margins of victory and defeat. Chartier insists that his program works. Several of his students have finished in the 90th percentile of ESPN’s annual contest, which drew more than eight million entries last year. Three students finished in the 96th to 99th percentiles. But the outputs are only as good as the inputs. Last year, one student accurately predicted 14thseeded Harvard’s win over third-seeded New Mexico but was beaten by more than 98 percent of the ESPN entries.
“You have to be a bit careful there,” Chartier said. The underlying math — applied linear algebra — is similar to what the Bowl Championship Series used to produce its rankings, but with a twist. Instead of incorporating past results, Chartier’s math helps predict how the tournament teams will be ranked and how they might fare. The software allows for either a Colley ranking, which is a linear system that uses only wins and losses, or a Massey ranking, which integrates the scores of the games. For most of the class, only basic math skills were required to follow along, but math majors were also challenged. “We may be home to Steph Curry,” Chartier said, referring to Davidson’s former point guard, “but also some major bracketology.” Chartier, 45, has also used math to solve Sudoku puzzles. He has explored the relationship between linear algebra and the physique of Yoda from “Star Wars.” And he has pondered the meaning of Buzz Lightyear’s slogan, “To infinity and beyond.” Chartier is also a mime. Using simple diagrams that showed various win-
loss situations, Chartier broke down the algorithm using systems of only four teams. He then expanded it to a diagram that looked like a spider web indicating the outcomes of nearly 350 teams in about 5,000 games. Several students gasped. “Holy smokes!” one exclaimed. With iPads that had Chartier’s software ready to go, along with printouts of practice brackets that used previous years’ data, students peppered Chartier and two student assistants with questions. What about upsets? How are emotional favorites factored? How much weight is a home game worth? And what about Florida? At one table, Joan Casazzone and Helen Kramer, high school math teachers from Great Neck, N.Y., worked on their predictions, hoping to bring the science of bracketology into their classrooms. “I’d love more of the nitty-gritty,” said Casazzone, who described herself as a basketball fiend. “Coding is hot right now.” She and Kramer said they hoped to fill out several brackets after, some using math, others using feelings. “We teach adolescents,” Kramer said. “So we know a lot about unpredictability.”
Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title BY BETH HARRIS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the BNP Paribas Open for the third time on Sunday. Federer rallied from a break down and a 5-3 deficit in the third set to force the tiebreaker, but he made
a slew of mistakes to lose the 33rd meeting between the rivals. Federer still leads the series 17-16, having beaten Djokovic in three sets in the semifinals at Dubai two weeks ago. Djokovic will remain No. 2 in the world, while Federer will rise three spots to No. 5 today in the ATP Tour rankings.
Flavia Pennetta routed injured Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1 to win the women’s title, the biggest of her career. Federer was trying to win a record fifth title in the desert, and at 32, he would have been the oldest Masters 1000 winner since 34-year-old Andre Agassi won at Cincinnati in 2004.
But Djokovic wouldn’t allow it. After Federer breezed to the first set in 31 minutes, Djokovic settled down and locked into the punishing rallies that marked most of the match. He earned the lone break of the second set to go up 5-3 after Federer pulled a forehand wide.

Senden rallies late to win BY DOUG FERGUSON
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PALM HARBOR, Fla. — More than seven years without a victory. A trip to Augusta National riding on the outcome. A three-way tie for the lead going into a daunting three-hole closing stretch called “The Snake Pit” on the Copperhead course of Innisbrook. John Senden was trying to keep his mind off all of that Sunday in the Valspar Championship. The finish will be hard for him to forget. Senden chipped in for birdie from 70 feet on the 16th hole, one of only two birdies in the final round at the toughest hole on the
course. He followed that with a 20-foot birdie putt to build a two-shot lead, then made it tough for Kevin Na to catch him with perfect pace on a 40-foot putt on the 18th that left him only a tap-in for par. Senden closed with a 1-under 70 and had enough strength left to hoist a trophy he said felt like 50 pounds. “I didn’t turn my phone on because I know there’s going to be 4,000 messages,” Senden said. “It feels good to do it again after seven years. Lot of good things to come.”
