Jefferson stuck in the middle Wellness survey puts county 18th in state By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Clallam and Jefferson counties landed smack-dab in the middle of a state list that ranks the health of its residents. Jefferson County ranked No. 18 and Clallam County was No. 19 out of 39 counties in health outcomes, according to the second annual County Health Rankings. San Juan County was the healthiest, and Ferry County was the least healthy in Washington state in the report released Tuesday by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which analyzed counties nationwide. The study examines factors such as life expectancy, smoking rates and doctor-topatient ratio to determine a county’s overall health. It is intended to help policymakers get a clear picture of the needs of their communities.

‘Get people talking’ Dr. Tom Locke, public health officer for Clallam and Jefferson counties, said the goal of the research is to “get people talking” about certain behaviors that affect health. “The whole point of this project is to try to get communities to work together to identify problems and do something about them,” Locke said.

CHIMACUM — A 4-yearold girl and a 33-year-old man were badly hurt after a car speeding on Center Road slid into a long skid, flew into the air for some 50 feet and landed in a wooded area 20 feet off the road early Thursday afternoon, emergency workers said.

Kim Cattrall glams down for new role AFTER 12 YEARS playing sultry screen vixen Samantha Jones on “Sex and the City,” Kim Cattrall said she’s “letting it all hang out” in her new role as a has-been porn star. Cattrall gained 20 pounds for the title role in the indie film “Meet Monica Velour,” about a Cattrall washed-up, aging porn star living in a rural Indiana trailer park. “It was actually kind of a relief,” the 54-year-old actress said Tuesday in an interview. “It was like getting rid of the Barbie doll and throwing it out and starting again.” She said packing on the pounds for “Monica Velour,” which comes out April 8, was her first break from dieting in 25 years and was “wonderful.” “We were shooting in Detroit, and there’s a lot of great bars in Detroit,” Cattrall said. “So I ate and I drank for about six weeks.” Not so wonderful, she admitted, was getting back into her strict regimen so she could shoot her next project, Roman Polanski’s “The Ghost Writer,” which was released last year.

1936 (75 years ago) A new cold-weather record for April was established in Port Angeles this morning, and there was no “April fooling” about it. The U.S. Weather Bureau thermometer showed a reading of 25.4 degrees at 2 a.m., said Leon G. Sutton, retired meteorologist. The lowest previous April temperature in all the years of weather bureau records in Port Angeles was 27 degrees, registered April 30, 1891, Sutton said. Seattle set a record low temperature for All Fools Day of 31 degrees, as did Everett, which dropped to 29 while a half-inch of snow fell.

1961 (50 years ago) Port Angeles’ badminton team got a noisy welcome home in response to two national titles, eight trophies and a number of runner-up spots in a national competition in Boston. When word that the car carrying the team was nearing town, a police car and fire truck escorted it to

a stand in front of the KONP radio studios on First Street. There, Mayor James E. Maxfield officially welcomed the players, coach Vern Burton and Mrs. John Barinaga, who chaperoned the team to Boston. The team members are Tyna Barinaga, Eva Halko, Caroline Jensen, Dean Carrell and John Doherty. A sixth member, Bob Jensen, has returned to Washington State University, where he is a student.

1986 (25 years ago) The breezes that sweep across Cape Flattery are strong enough to fuel a wind-power electricity plant but probably too strong for profitable operation of one, says a Bonne­ville Power Administration study. Cape Flattery’s winds gust with enough force to damage generation equipment, says the study, which examined about 300 potential sites across the Northwest. Ten sites on the Olympic Peninsula were initially tabbed as potential windpower locations, but Cape Flattery was the only one chosen for the study.

Briefly: World Russian police detain about 150 protesters MOSCOW — Russian police arrested about 150 people, including two prominent opposition figures, who were trying to take part in unauthorized anti-government protests in Moscow and St. Petersburg on Thursday. In Moscow, police arrested 54 people in connection with a demonstration at Triumfalnaya Square in the city center, police spokesman Viktor Biryukov told the news agency RIA Novosti. Eduard Limonov, a leader of the Other Russia movement, was among those taken into custody. He is frequently detained at unsanctioned protests. In St. Petersburg, police said they arrested about 100 people, including Boris Nemtsov, a former deputy prime minister who has become one of the country’s most visible opposition figures. Demonstrators in Moscow unfurled an anti-government banner and also chanted “Russia without Putin,” referring to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Attorney general quits MEXICO CITY — President Felipe Calderon announced the resignation of his attorney general Thursday and nominated the assistant in charge of organized crime as his successor, the first woman to hold the post if she is approved. Calderon gave no reason for the departure of Arturo Chavez Chavez, the second attorney general to resign since Calderon was elected president in 2006.

He nominated Marisela Morales, who heads the organized crime unit of the Attorney General’s Office, to replace Morales Chavez. She must be approved by the senate. Chavez was appointed in 2009 after the departure of Eduardo Medina Mora, one of the main architects of Calderon’s crackdown on drug trafficking and organized crime. More than 34,600 people have been killed since Calderon’s administration launched the campaign shortly after he became president.

Drop Chernobyl probe? PARIS — A prosecutor wants to drop a decade-long investigation into the fallout in France from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident, citing lack of proof that it caused health problems. The prosecutor argued in a hearing Thursday that the probe has been inconclusive and should be abandoned, according to a judicial official. Investigators said the head of the French radiation safety agency at the time of the Chernobyl accident deliberately misled the public by minimizing the health risks in France from the radioactive cloud it produced. The safety agency chief, Pierre Pellerin, is the only person who has been handed preliminary charges in the case. He has insisted on his innocence, and the prosecutor said there was no evidence he misled the public on purpose. The Associated Press

U.S.: No ‘boots on the ground’ in Libya Troops won’t follow air hits, defense secretary promises By Pauline Jelinek The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — When U.S. officials promise there will be no American “boots on the ground” in Libya, they aren’t talking literally, nor about footwear. It’s military shorthand that may look to some like rhetorical sleight of hand. But the CIA paramilitary officers now known to be operating along- Gates side rebel forces in the North African nation aren’t part of the U.S. military, and so they are excluded from the promise. The U.S. and its allies are operating under U.N. authorization to provide protection for Libyan civilians and air cover against Moammar Gadhafi’s warplanes. That does not rule out military ground forces, but the Obama administration has made a point of saying that American involvement will stop far short of that. Paramilitary officers from the CIA’s Special Activities Division have their own vehicles, airplanes and other equipment and most have previously served in the military. They sneak into hostile areas to collect intelligence or perform intelligence missions that the government doesn’t want to talk about openly. “Sneakers, they’re wearing

sneakers, not boots,” said John Pike of the think tank. “That’s how they’re clandestine.” There also is some debate on Capitol Hill over whether committing military ground forces would require broader authority from Congress, where some lawmakers already are peeved over what they said Thursday was a lack of consultation before the U.S. committed to be part of the international coalition in Libya. But the military is not hitting the ground in Libya, the administration has said repeatedly. “What the president has made clear is that he will not send, has not sent and will not send American troops on the ground into Libya,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday. “That is his position, and it has not changed.”

Not like Iraq In other words, there will be no invasion like Iraq’s in 2003. Gen. Carter Ham, who was commander of the Libya operation before it was handed over to NATO, has said the scope of the U.S. mission was made plain from the start. “It’s been very clear to me — and I think anyone who has heard the president or the secretary of defense speak to this, you know, no American boots on the ground . . . from this coalition,” Ham said in a Pentagon press conference March 21. On Thursday, a day after revelations that the CIA has had officers in Libya for some time, Defense

Secretary Robert Gates staked his job on a pledge that military troops wouldn’t follow on the ground. He declared there would be no U.S. military forces there “as long as I am in this job.”

CIA officers in Libya A U.S official familiar with operations in the country said U.S. personnel on the ground in Libya are not training, arming or supporting rebel forces at the moment. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said it is not in the current plan to have the CIA supply and train rebel forces. So what’s the CIA doing there? Some highly likely tasks for the small group of agency operatives inside Libya include judging the needs and strengths of the rebel force trying to oust Gadhafi and perhaps organizing and training the rebels. “It’s not the same thing,” Nora Bensahel of the Center for a New American Security said of using the CIA as opposed to soldiers to gather intelligence or assess the abilities of the warring military forces there. “There is a distinction.” The CIA had an office, or station, in the country before the rebel uprising, so it’s unsurprising to many that the agency has people there now. “It would be scandalous if they weren’t there” to help establish who the rebels are and what’s going on, said analyst Pike. The revelation Wednesday of the CIA presence in Libya came as battlefield setbacks this week raised again the suspicion that the largely untrained and poorly equipped rebels cannot prevail militarily on their own.

Gadhafi defiant amid defections, urging airstrike leaders to resign The Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi struck a defiant stance Thursday after two high-profile defections from his regime, saying he’s not the one who should go — it’s the Western leaders who have decimated his military with airstrikes who should resign immediately. Gadhafi’s message was undercut by its delivery — a scroll across the bottom of state TV as

he remained out of sight. The White House said the strongman’s inner circle was clearly crumbling with the loss of Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa, who flew from Tunisia to England on Wednesday.

Another departure Ali Abdessalam Treki, a former foreign minister and U.N. General Assembly president, announced his departure on several opposi-

tion websites the next day, saying “It is our nation’s right to live in freedom and democracy and enjoy a good life.” Gadhafi accused the leaders of the countries attacking his forces of being “affected by power madness.” “The solution for this problem is that they resign immediately and their peoples find alternatives to them,” the Libya state news agency quoted him as saying.

WINDY, RAINY WEATHER furiously swept through central Florida on Thursday, knocking out power to tens of thousands of people, flooding roads and toppling trucks and small planes. In Lakeland, Fla., where several hundred people had gathered for the annual Sun ’n’ Fun aviation festival, a tent collapsed and injured seven people, authorities said; all of the injuries were minor, and six were taken to a hospital. “The worst injury was a fractured hip,” said Polk County Sheriff’s spokesman Scott Wilder. About 70 people were under the tent when it collapsed, and some crawled out, he said.

A POISONOUS EGYPTIAN cobra that disappeared from a Bronx Zoo exhibit was found Thursday after nearly a week on the lam, zoo officials said. The 24-inch snake was found coiled in a dark corner of the zoo’s reptile house, said zoo director Jim Breheny. The New York reptile house had closed last Friday after the snake disappeared and zoo workers couldn’t find her. He said zoo workers put out wood chips that had been used as bedding for mice in order to lure the 3-ounce snake.

The Wall Street Journal reported that 49-year-old Yuri Milner, an investor in Facebook, Groupon and Zynga, has no immediate plans to move into the home. Milner is the founder of Digital Sky Technologies, an investment firm he started in 2005. The mansion purchased by Milner is a French-style chateau set on 18 acres. The estate has a ballroom, wine cellar, gym, spa and pools inside and out.

FOR THE FIRST time, women’s death rates from lung cancer are dropping, possibly a turning point in the smoking-fueled epidemic. It’s a small decline, said the nation’s annual report on cancer — just less than 1 percent a year. And lung cancer remains the nation’s, and the world’s, leading cancer killer. But the long-anticipated drop — coming more than a decade after a similar decline began in U.S. men — is a hopeful sign. “It looks like we’ve turned the corner,” said Elizabeth Ward of the American Cancer Society, who co-authored Thursday’s report. “We think this downward trend is real, and we think it will continue.”

Author to talk at Slow Food event By Charlie Bermant

Writing the first draft took two years, after which Lewis began a search for a publisher and a period of editing and rewriting. During this period, publishing options expanded with do-it-yourself options emerging, but Lewis chose to stay on a traditional path. “I wanted to do this in the old style,� he said of his choice to stick with a traditional publisher. “It’s not an easy thing to get an agent and a publisher these days, so I feel like I have accomplished something.� Writing a book wasn’t a great leap for Lewis. While he was in the restaurant business, he led a parallel life in the literary world that was connected to Port Townsend.

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Author Peter Lewis said it is appropriate he will be reading parts of his newly published mystery, Dead in the Dregs, on Sunday at an event benefiting the Slow Food North Olympic Peninsula chapter. “It was a slow book,� Lewis said of the novel, which took about six years from the germ of the idea to publication. “It took about the same time as it would to grow a vine that would yield anything worth drinking.� Lewis will appear at Sweet Laurette’s Cafe and Bistro, 1029 Lawrence St., from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets are $30.

The food will be made from local ingredients, and specially ordered French wine will be served. The money raised will be used to support educational programs. Lewis will discuss the book, read a few passages and provide the atmosphere for the French bistro-style appetizer buffet and no-

host bar. The book introduces a series character named Babe Stern and begins with the murder of an influential wine critic. Stern, a former sommelier, travels through the California and French wine countries in search of the culprit.

Lewis is apparently a graduate of the “write what you know� school, as he is a former restaurateur and a wine expert having founded Seattle’s Campagne and Cafe Campagne restaurants. The idea for the book came fully formed after multiple trips to France,

Hearing in vehicular homicide postponed Judge recuses himself from Steim case By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A motion hearing originally set Thursday for a Port Angeles woman charged with vehicular homicide and witness tampering has been rescheduled for Tuesday. The hearing for Amber Steim of Port Angeles was moved after court Commissioner Brian Coughenour recused himself as the judge pro tem.

Coughenour, who was filling in as the sitting judge, did not state the reason he recused himself in court documents. The hearing will instead be held Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Clallam County Superior Court. Because of the large number of people who have been interested in the case, the hearing could be heard in Courtroom I, which holds up to 80 people.

Pleaded not guilty Steim, 24, has pleaded not guilty to both vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol and witness tampering. The charges were filed in

connection with a March 6 crash on state Highway 112 between Joyce and Port Ange- Steim les that killed Ellen J. DeBondt, 44, a nurse with Olympic Medical Center’s home health agency. Steim is free on $100,000 bond. She is accused of being drunk when the pickup truck she was driving crossed the centerline and struck DeBondt’s pickup head-on. Steim had minor inju-

ries and was treated at Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles. Steim’s passenger, Nicole Boucher, also had minor injuries and was driven from the scene by a friend or family member. If Steim is convicted of the vehicular homicide charge, she faces a sentence of between 31 and 41 months in prison and a $50,000 fine. The crime of vehicular homicide carries a sentence of up to life in prison, but because Steim has a lowoffender score, the sentence limit is 41 months, said Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg.

The witness-tampering charge — she is accused of contacting Boucher to fabricate an excuse involving alcohol — carries a sentence of up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. During the hearing, Steim’s attorney Ralph Anderson, is expected to present several motions.

Change of venue

“When you listen to the CD, it does not sound like witness tampering, but that is another issue altogether,” he said. “I’m asking that they sever the charges so that the cases can be heard separately.” Anderson said he also will ask to have an expert witness look at Steim’s vehicle to make sure there was nothing wrong with it. Troberg said he won’t file any motions at the Tuesday hearing.

Anderson said he intends to file a change of venue request Tuesday because of the attention the case has received locally. __________ He said he will also ask that a separate trial be held Reporter Paige Dickerson can for the witness-tampering be reached at 360-417-3535 or at charge from the vehicular paige.dickerson@peninsuladaily homicide charge.

Clallam County charter requires that the districts be divided by population, with boundaries that run north to south. The largest district cannot exceed the population of the smallest district by more than 5 percent. The charter requires the districting master to submit a draft proposal for the new districts to the commission by June 30. “Don [Corson] and I are asking the districting commission to define the very things they want us to prepare in the way of getting ready for the public hearings and what they want them to look like,” Unger said. “It’s more of a scheduling meeting, really.” Public hearings are planned for Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks.

Driver sought in high-speed chase By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office was looking Thursday night for the driver of a 1992 red Honda Civic who led authorities on a highspeed chase down JoycePiedmont Road, U.S. Highway 101 and onto the residential streets of Port Angeles. The chase was called off on Georgiana Street near Olympic Medical Center at 7:30 p.m. “We’re going to discontinue,” a deputy said over the police radio. “He’s just driving too crazy.” Clallam County Sheriff’s Sgt. John Keegan said the chase was called off for public safety reasons.

A description of the driver was not available, Keegan said. The car was later discovered abandoned in an alley west of Francis Street between 10th and 11th streets. Trooper Krista Hedstrom, State Patrol spokeswoman, said an Elwha police officer started the pursuit on state Highway 112 at Milepost 53 at about 6:45 p.m. A State Patrol trooper led the chase on Highway 101, reaching speeds of 100 mph, until the driver reached the Port Angeles city limit. Hedstrom said the car was reported stolen from an unknown Chinese restaurant Monday. The driver managed to

avoid a spike strip on Highway 101 near the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society at 7:23 p.m. The driver then turned north onto Bean Road, west onto Lauridsen Boulevard and north onto Tumwater Truck Route. After turning south on Cedar Street, the driver led authorities east to Race Street and north toward OMC. Police called off the chase as the driver sped down alleys and residential surface streets. Border Patrol agents discovered the abandoned car about 20 minutes later.

Clallam County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Murphy examines a car involved in a high-speed chase earlier in the day after it was found abandoned in an alley between East 10th and 11th streets near Francis Street in Port Angeles on Thursday night.

Health: 27% obese in Clallam, 22% in Jefferson Continued from A1 The results for the North Olympic Peninsula were similar in the initial University of Wisconsin study, Locke said. “We have a lot of positive things going on in both counties, and we’ve also got some real challenges,” Locke said.

Crash rate high The motor vehicle crash rate, for example, was significantly higher on the Peninsula compared with the state. Clallam County had 21 deaths per 100,000 people in auto wrecks, Jefferson County had 18 deaths per 100,000, and the state average was 12. “We know that’s an issue,” Locke said.

The Peninsula’s scores were on par with the state for substance abuse. However, Locke said, more detailed studies have shown that Clallam and Jefferson counties have drug and alcohol problems. “I think both counties have significant substance abuse, and I would include alcohol and tobacco among those,” he said. The Wisconsin study showed that 17 percent of adults smoke in Clallam County, Jefferson County and the state.

Obesity, drinking Twenty-seven percent of those sampled were obese in Clallam County and Washington state, while Jefferson County had a 22 percent obesity rate. In all three jurisdictions, about 16 percent reported

excessive drinking. Locke said substance abuse correlates to “very real health consequences.” The Peninsula scored particularly well for lack of sexually transmitted infections. Jefferson County had a 149-per-100,000 rate of chlamydia, compared with 225 in Clallam County and 331 in the state. “For sexually transmitted infections, what strikes me there is the Jefferson County rate is very low compared to the state,” Locke said. “We think there’s a reason for that.” Locke attributed the low rate of sexually transmitted infections to robust familyplanning programs. He described Jefferson County as “one of the best places in the state for reproductive health services.”

“The more people you find that have these infections and you treat them, the lower the chance of anyone else getting them,” Locke said. “We assume the risk factors are the same amount. That’s a real public health success story there.” Locke will discuss the findings of the new research at the Clallam and Jefferson County Board of Health meetings later this month.

Health care access While the North Olympic Peninsula has more primary-care doctors per capita — 651 people per doctor in Clallam County and 688 per doctor in Jefferson County — than the state (736 to 1), Locke said local health care access is still an issue. “Something concerning

to me is the rate of uninsured adults is steadily going up,” said Locke, referring to the 17 percent uninsured in Jefferson County and 16 percent uninsured in Clallam County. “It used to be in the single digits five or 10 years ago, and it’s gradually creeping up,” he added. “We still have a significant problem with access to health care. A lot of it has to do with affordability. Health care is unaffordable to many people.”

Poor children

holds, compared with 30 percent for Jefferson County and 28 percent for the state. Jefferson County public health officials are in the middle of a more detailed health assessment. A similar assessment will be made in Clallam County later, Locke said. “This is the stuff we really want people to be thinking about — what is the effect of environment and nutrition and all these different risk factors,” Locke said.

But he soon added that the local economy is affected by global events. “The cost of food is linked to the cost of energy,” he said. “What is happening right now in North Africa isn’t pretty and has thrown the cost of energy into uncertainty, but it is clear that all the people in this room are going to have to work harder for less.” Cascade Conservancy President Gene Duvernoy acknowledged that the material lacked specifics but said such specifics weren’t necessary at this point, though people in Port

Report: Prepaid tuition program looks solvent for next 50 years By Donna Gordon Blankinship

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — A new state actuary report released Thursday said there is a less than 1 percent chance Washington’s prepaid tuition program would not be able to meet its financial obligations over the next 50 years, and changes proposed by the Legislature could create a less solvent alternative. If the current Guaranteed Education Program did have trouble meeting its obligations, the state would have to come up with as much as $4.6 billion to cover the shortfall, according to the solvency analysis. But in a hearing Thursday morning before the House Ways and Means Committee, State Actuary Matthew Smith emphasized the chance of insolvency is relatively low. “Based on this analysis, the program does look sound under current terms,” Smith said, but added, “It isn’t without risk.” Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown and Minority Leader Mike Hewitt have proposed a bill that would establish new limits on the

“I know that sometimes a small problem can turn into a large problem. Having some tightening up on the program actually makes it stronger over the long-term.”

program that might make it less attractive to potential buyers. Brown said the changes would aid its longterm viability, while making the GET program only slightly less generous. Thursday’s actuary report said Brown and Hewitt’s proposal, which would effectively create a new GET 2, would have a lower possibility of insolvency — .4 percent for GET 2 versus .7 percent for the current GET over the next 50 years — unless the new program attracts many fewer participants.

Fewer participants Opponents of the bill say the new GET is likely to attract fewer participants because investment returns will not be as good. If that happens, the chance of potential state contribution to the program would increase dramatically.

Smith’s analysis said if annual purchases of prepaid tuition units are cut in half, then the state could face a financial obligation up to $15.9 billion. As the GET program currently stands, 100 prepaid units will buy a year of tuition and state mandated fees at the state’s two most expensive public universities — University of Washington or Washington State University — whenever they are used in the future. Substitute Senate Bill 5749 would decrease the value of GET units considerably for people who buy into the program starting next August. For new investors, 100 units would be worth the average of tuition at all of the state institutions of higher education, weighted by the number of enrolled undergrad students, and would cover some but not all student fees.

April 30 deadline The GET committee adjusts the enrollment price each year to keep up with increases in tuition and the ups and downs of the stock market. People enrolled in the program have until April 30 to buy units at the current price of $117. The current enrollment period ended Thursday. A task force is developing some changes to the current program to keep it as financial tight as possible, said Larry Lee, GET Deputy Director, in testifying to the Ways and Means Committee on Thursday. Among those ideas were more frequent rate adjustments and a bigger reserve fund.

Victoria hotel to mark April royal wedding Peninsula Daily News

VICTORIA — The Fairmont Empress is digging out china used by the Queen of England in 1939 for special events during the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London. Both the Fairmont Empress in Victoria and the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver will celebrate the occasion. The Fairmont Empress is offering a “Rise & Shine with the Royals” breakfast starting at 3 a.m. April 29. The wedding will be aired live from Britain. Guests can wear pajamas or a Fairmont robe and watch the live wedding broadcast during breakfast in the Tea Lobby. The cost is $39 per adult. Reservations are required. Later that day, a “Royal Subjects Picnic & Tea” is planned on the front lawn of the hotel. For $20, guests can

purchase afternoon tea to go that includes a cup of tea, scone with cream and jam, mini sandwiches, pastries and a flag to wave. A celebration will follow. It will include a bestdressed-dog contest. A “Royal Empress Room Dinner” will be offered for three nights only April 29 through May 1. The dinner in The Empress Room will be served on the Queen’s china,which has not been used since Queen Elizabeth ate off of it during a visit to Victoria in 1939. Menu items are inspired by her visit in 1939. Due to the limited quantity of the Queen’s china, the dinner will be available to a limited number of guests for $150 per person. The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver also will feature special events through the month of April.

U.S. launches inquiry into police shooting By Gene Johnson

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday launched a formal civil rights investigation into the Seattle Police Department following the fatal shooting of a homeless Native American woodcarver and other incidents of force used against minority suspects. The investigation aims to determine whether Seattle police have a “pattern or practice” of violating civil rights or discriminatory policing, and if so, what they should do to improve, Seattle U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan and the assistant attorney general for the Justice’s civil rights division, Thomas E. Perez, said during a conference call Thursday morning. Durkan’s office previously conducted a preliminary investigation. Perez said the investigation would involve reviewing the police department’s policies, watching officers on the beat, gathering records, and interviewing officers, police brass and community groups. “Our broader goal is to ensure that the community has an effective, accountable police department that controls crime, ensures respect for


the Constitution, and enjoys the trust of the public it is charged with protecting,” he said. The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington and 34 other community groups called for the inquiry after a Seattle officer shot and killed woodcarver John T. Williams last summer.

Patrol car video Video from Officer Ian Birk’s patrol car showed Williams crossing the street holding a piece of wood and a small knife, and Birk exiting the vehicle to pursue him. Off camera, Birk quickly shouted three times for Williams to drop the knife, then fired five shots. The knife was found folded at the scene, but Birk later maintained Williams had threatened him. Birk resigned from the force but was not charged by state prosecutors who cited the high bar of having to prove he acted with malice and without good faith. A review board found the shooting unjustified. Separate from the “pattern or practice” investigation of the department, the DOJ also confirmed Thursday that it is taking a look at whether Birk should be charged criminally with deliberately violating Williams’ civil rights while acting under “color of law” as a police officer.

Brown, D-Spokane, said the changes would aid its long-term viability, while making the program only slightly less generous. “I know that sometimes a small problem can turn into a large problem,” Brown said a few weeks ago before the new actuary report was available. “Having some tightening up on the program actually makes it stronger over the longterm.”

Peninsula Daily News for Friday/Saturday, April 1-2, 2011




Farmers’ friend bids adieu, Peninsula NO FOOLING. AS of today, Curtis Beus is trading mud for dust. Beus, Washington State Martha M. University’s Clallam County Ireland extension director for almost 16 years, has taken a transfer to become the extension director in Okanogan County. “It was time to make a professional move and time to get back to my roots in livestock,” said Beus, who grew up on a large Columbia Basin farm. Jefferson County also has an opening for WSU extension director. After 20 years in that position, Katherine Baril retired at the end of 2010. She remains in Port Townsend and is now a volunteer at the extension office. Extension offices provide “a portal to the people’s university,” Beus said. Directors are WSU faculty, cooperatively co-funded by the counties they serve. With the agreement of Clallam and Jefferson counties, Beus

said, both positions will be filled simultaneously, within three months, and may function as a bi-county team. Small farms, marketing, value-added agriculture, agritourism and some forestry are skills sought for Clallam’s next extension director, while small business and economic development will be Jefferson County’s Extension focus, Beus added. Counties sometimes see turnover as an opportunity to cut extension spending. Okanogan has slashed its extension budget about 60 percent, a portion similar to cuts in Clallam County when Beus’ predecessor, Jack Waud, retired in 1995. Discussions about phasing out Clallam County Extension ended when I took office as District 1 Clallam County commissioner in 1996. Soon after, WSU introduced an enthusiastic, energetic young man who wanted the job despite the minimal funding. “You make do, find grants and find ways to get things done,” said Beus, who earned his doctorate in rural sociology. During his first two years in Clallam, the challenge was to “create a culture and (social) climate where ag is at least visi-

ble and farming is still valued and viable in the public eye,” he said. “I quickly saw there wasn’t Curtis Beus enough critical mass left to make large farms work,” said Beus, a founding member of the nonprofit Friends of the Fields. More than 30,000 of the state’s 37,000 farms meet the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s definition of small farms. “It’s amazing how many people come in, buy five to 10 acres, and have an itch to grow something,” Beus said. “It’s not negative if the land stays in agriculture.” WSU’s Small Farms Team, which he connected, undertook to establish credibility for smallscale agriculture. That award-winning team has grown from seven faculty members to 30. Beus organized the first Harvest Celebration, “not as a touristy event, but to reconnect local people with the farms,” he said. It flourished and has been

Peninsula Voices ‘Gangs’ Consider a less-stressful way of thinking about national events. Most people: ■ Believe in “good” and “bad.” ■ Think both good and bad people exist in our nation. ■ Consider themselves to be good people. However, since electronics can’t measure goodness or badness, authorities and our society function best by assuming everyone is bad. Holding this pessimistic premise, why has our society succeeded? From the beginning, people have joined together in marriages, tribes, fellowships, clubs, associations, communities, unions, lodges, professions, parties, agencies, guilds, societies.

I call these groupings gangs — gangs formed for mutual benefit. To fulfill their own goals, some gangs are prone to violence. Sadly, all gangs will defame, slander and might eventually use violence. How have we succeeded as a nation of bad people and gangs? Since government regulators and the judiciary are also gangs, national life is rarely just nor fair. However, relying on the possibility that some “good” people truly exist to ameliorate gangs, a practical attitude is to recognize that national success comes when gangs freely compete to create a crude balance. Historically, when one gang grows too strong, resulting in shifting the

copied by 17 counties. Lavender — a crop with which he had no experience — was just taking hold when Beus arrived. Sequim lavender is now known internationally — and Beus is “the lavender guy,” in demand as a speaker on the topic. But not everyone wants to grow lavender. The most common question is this: What can we grow to make money? Beus answers: “Growing only costs money. Start with what you can sell, and figure out how you can serve that market.” He advised one couple with grand dreams to start with a quarter-acre, learn their craft, establish a market and then grow. They planted two acres, sold nothing and lost the entire crop. A business plan comes first, Beus has told more than 130 local people who attended his sustainable farming course. “You can learn to grow anything, but marketing has to be the beginning,” he said. Beus’ wife, Kim, will stay in Sequim until her son graduates from Sequim High School in June. The Beuses hope to keep part

of their property on the Peninsula for a vacation retreat but will be putting their house and the rest of their land up for sale. Beus never balked when Clallam County called on him to go beyond his job description. While serving on the agricultural lands advisory committee, Beus figured out land use strategies and wrote sections of the comprehensive plan, “somewhat unusual” for an extension agent, he says. “I had to walk a fine line — WSU [faculty] is not supposed to get involved politically, but we are supposed to do public issues education.” That extra work “paid dividends personally,” he said. “I learned diversity. I learned a different culture. I learned to deal with mud instead of dust.” ________ Martha M. Ireland was a Clallam County commissioner from 1996 through 1999.

GOP draws light-bulb line in the sand OF ALL THE controversies now raging in Washington, D.C., the one I find most endearing is the fight over federal regulation of light bulb efficiency. “Instead of a leaner, smarter Gail government, Collins we bought a bureaucracy that now tells us which light bulbs to buy,” complained Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., in her tea party response to the president’s State of the Union address. Bachmann has strong opinions on this matter. She is the author of the Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act, which would repeal a federal requirement that the typical 100watt bulb become 25 percent more energy efficient by 2012. Bachmann hateshateshates that sort of thing, as you would expect from a woman whose Earth Day speech in 2009 was an ode to carbon dioxide. (“It’s a part of the regular life cycle of the earth.”)

Hysteria over the government taking away our right to buy inefficient light bulbs has been sweeping through certain segments of the Republican Party. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, sponsor of the Better Use of Light Bulbs Act, says we’re about to lose the bulb that “has been turning back the night ever since Thomas Edison ended the era of a world lit only by fire in 1879.” Barton’s vision of the standard 100-watt incandescent is so heroic, you’d think it would be getting its own television series. “When Congress dictates which light bulbs folks in South Carolina must buy, it’s clear the ‘nanny state’ mentality has gotten out of control in Washington,” said Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., one of 27 co-sponsors of a Senate bill calling for repeal of the new efficiency standards. The great thing about this battle, which has spawned predictions of widespread light-bulbhoarding, is that it will take your mind off Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq and the pending government shut-down. It’s a little like the Donald Trump presidential candidacy, only less irritating. Opponents of the law claim

that the newer, more energy-efficient and cost-saving breeds of bulb give a less pleasing light, although that doesn’t seem to have dissuaded the American consumers from moving away from the incandescents in droves. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association says demand for the allegedly beloved old bulbs has dropped 50 percent over the last five years. A terribly cynical mind might suspect the whole hubbub was just for political show. Jeff Bingaman, the chairman of the energy committee, said he had not actually been accosted by any of his fellow senators begging him to help get angry light bulb aficionados off their backs. “I heard the statements at the committee hearing, but nobody’s walking the halls lobbying me about this,” he said. That was the famous hearing during which Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., began with a rant about light bulbs and wound up complaining that his toilets back home didn’t work. “You busybodies always want to tell us how we can live our lives better,” he said passionately. “I’ve been waiting for 20 years to talk about how bad these

toilets are.” If Paul has been stewing about his bathroom fixtures since 1991, it may go a long way toward explaining his rather gloomy world view. But the crux of his argument came at a different point, when he demanded to know whether Kathleen Hogan, a Department of Energy official, was “prochoice.” “I’m pro-choice on light bulbs,” Hogan said cannily. Paul, not to be dissuaded, claimed that Obamaites favored “a woman’s right to an abortion, but you don’t favor a woman’s or a man’s right to choose what kind of light bulb.” The proper comparison here would really be between the energy-efficiency regulations and the government rules that set minimum standards for sanitation and medical care when an abortion is performed. If you were willing to overlook the fact that any attempt whatsoever to equate abortions and light bulbs is completely nuts. It’s a classic tea party herd of straw horses. Paul managed to lump the light bulb regulations with things his supporters hate

(abortions/federal government telling me what to do) while ignoring the fact that the rules are much closer to things they like, such as standards that guarantee that if they go to a hospital or clinic, the place will be clean and staffed by qualified personnel. Although the Rand Paul crowd is blaming the light bulb regulations on Obama, the rules were actually signed into law in 2007 by George W. Bush. And as Roger A. Pielke Jr., a professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, wrote in a New York Times Op-Ed article recently, Washington has been in the standard-setting business since 1894, “when Congress standardized the meaning of what are today common scientific measures, including the ohm, the volt, the watt and the henry, in line with international metrics.” You have to wonder if, back in 1894, there was a general outcry against the federal government trying to tell an American citizen how big his ohm should be. _________ Gail Collins is a columnist with The New York Times.

Egypt’s bumpy road to democracy EGYPT IS A MESS. Nearly two months after street protests inspired a democratic revolution, the transitional military-backed government has proposed — you guessed it — a law banning protests. That’s partly because everybody is protesting, even the police. The cops Nicholas want more money, perhaps Kristof because their diminished authority means that they can now extract less in bribes. With the police out of commission, the army uses thugs to intimidate its critics. And, when it really gets irritated, it arrests and tortures democracy activists. As I wrote in my previous column, it has even tried to humiliate female activists by subjecting them to forced “virginity exams.” The Muslim Brotherhood, once banned, has been brought into the power structure. Instead of denouncing the system, it is becoming part of it — and some of its activists are rampaging around Cairo University. Yet for Americans, what is unfolding is perhaps a reassuring mess. Westerners have mostly worried that Egypt might plunge into Iran-style Islamic fundamentalism — and, to me, that seems a reflection of our own hobgoblins more than Egypt’s. Indeed, it seems increasingly likely that Egypt won’t change as much as many had expected. Moreover, the biggest losers of the revolution are likely to be violent Islamic extremist groups that lose steam when the more moderate Muslim Brotherhood joins the system. “There is a determined effort to stop the revolution in its tracks,” notes Prof. Khaled Fahmy of the American University in Cairo. That’s disappointing for democracy activists like him, but reassuring to those who fear upheaval. Based on my third trip to Cairo since the protests began, here’s my guess as to how events unfold:

n Post-revolution Egypt will look a lot like pre-revolution Egypt, but modestly less repressive and with a more powerful civil society. The army will continue to run the show, as it has since 1952 through onetime officers like Hosni Mubarak, and will ensure continuity. n People will continue to be tortured, but will complain about it more. Peace with Israel will continue, but Egyptian officials will speak up more forcefully about suffering in Gaza. n The best bet for the next president is Amr Moussa. He’s a former foreign minister who has led the Arab League — a veteran politician and pragmatist who would constitute a breath of fresh air but not a gust of it. n Islamists will play a greater role in society and government, as they do in Turkey. But this will also mean that they are trying to build things rather than blow them up. Islamic groups are certainly more active than before. Mohammed Alaiwa, a professor of literary criticism at Cairo University, told me that he was in a dean’s office recently when a Muslim Brotherhood student burst in, pulled out a pistol and threatened to shoot the dean unless he resigned then and there (the student eventually backed down). Prof. Alaiwa said that he now fears the Muslim Brotherhood students. Meanwhile, the up-and-comer Islamists are Salafis, who think the Muslim Brotherhood is far too moderate. A group of Salafis recently attacked a Coptic Christian, apparently accusing him of illicit sexual activity and cutting off his ear. Order is breaking down somewhat. When Egyptians celebrated International Women’s Day on March 8, gangs of men harassed them. When Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel Peace Prize-winner who is running for president, tried to vote in a recent referendum, a mob attacked him. When foreign reporters show

up to cover news that might portray Egypt in a bad light, angry mobs sometimes chase them away. Fortunately, terrified reporters have so far proved to be swifter runners than Egyptian xenophobes. Yet we have to be realistic: roads to democracy are always bumpy — and, frankly, I feel pretty good about Egypt. Despite some excesses, the Muslim Brotherhood has been tamed by being brought into the system. It says it won’t field a candidate for president and will contest only a bit more than onethird of parliamentary seats. Its Web site suggests that its aim is “a civil state” rather than “a religious state,” and it emphasizes the importance of respect for the Christian minority. The big loser from the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise is probably its enemy, al-Qaida, which wasn’t a part of the democracy protests and always argued that the only path to change was violence. All in all, Egypt today reminds me of other countries in transitions to democracy — Spain after Franco, South Korea in 1987, Romania or Ukraine in the 1990s, and, most of all, of Indonesia after the ouster of its dictator in 1998. Indonesia was dodgy for a while — I once encountered Javanese mobs beheading people — but it settled down, the extremist threat diminished, and Indonesia is now a stable (if unfinished) democracy. So, yes, Egypt is messy. A young democracy almost always is. Let’s get used to it. Nicholas D. Kristof is a twotime Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for The New York Times.

ATF nominee enemy of gun owners FOR 30 YEARS, Chicago banned handguns. The crime rate skyrocketed. Murders soared. Gangs blossomed. Desperate city officials Michelle even considered calling the Malkin National Guard to combat the out-of-control violence that all the “community organizing” in the world couldn’t curb. The Supreme Court struck down Chicago’s individual firearms ownership prohibition last year, but the same anti-gun zealots who put Windy City citizens’ lives at risk remain in power. Now one of them may soon be in charge of the scandal-plagued Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Meet Andrew Traver. He’s President Obama’s nominee to head ATF. The Senate Judiciary Committee refused to act on the original nomination last fall. His name was sent up again earlier this year, and a hearing has yet to be scheduled. Obama’s czar-happy habits should be a red flag on a possible recess appointment. Traver has spent two decades in the Chicago ATF office bureaucracy. The White House touts his record as a Navy vet and crimefighter. But it’s his anti-gun advocacy that won him Chicago crony backing in the Beltway. Liberal Republican Sen. Mark Kirk and rabid leftist Sen. Dick Durbin both support their home state bureaucrat. Grassroots Second Amendment groups across the country (not to mention rank-and-file

ATF agents) have raised their voices in opposition. Traver allied with the progressive Joyce Foundation to lobby for tighter federal restrictions of Second Amendment freedoms. He supports curtailing access to ATF databases and opposes privacy protections for gun owners. He has also compared automatic black-market weapons to legal semi-automatic assault weapons. As the National Rifle Association points out, Traver misled the public in a fear-mongering appearance on a Chicago NBC affiliate TV news show. In the interview, he hyped “the growing frequency of gang members and drug dealers using heavy caliber military-type weapons” and described them as if they were machine guns: “Pull the trigger and you can mow people down.” Traver and his agents “provided the reporter with a fully automatic AK-47, with which she was unable to hit the target,” the NRA reported. “He then said that stray bullets are ‘one of the main problems with having stuff like this available to the gangs.’” Except for the fact, contradicting the implication of the NBC scare story and Traver’s rhetoric, that fully automatic firearms are not available for sale through normal retail outlets. But the truth wouldn’t have made for a story as sensationalized and swaggering as the one Traver helped concoct. Instead of focusing on criminals, the bureaucracy-expanding ATF suits and their left-leaning, anti-gun benefactors target lawabiding gun dealers and shop owners. Far easier to shoot fish in a barrel than reptiles slithering in the dark. Second Amendment activist

Mike Vanderboegh, who helped expose the ATF’s emerging Project Gunrunner scandal (in which botched sting operations have allowed straw purchasers monitored by the feds to walk untold thousands of guns across the southern border), says Traver is known to be a “managerial bad apple in ATF circles.” He rose through the agency hierarchy, “all the while making friends of notorious Illinois antifirearm rights politicians of both parties. “He has had personal friendly contact with Barack Obama and Hizzoner, the King of Chicago Richard Daley. “He has worked with the virulently anti-firearm Joyce Foundation . . . putting his efforts and his name to a report which calls for more firearm bans and regulations that amount to the gutting of the Second Amendment.” NRA’s Chris Cox summed up the nomination bluntly: “You might as well put an arsonist in charge of the fire department.” Traver’s pending nomination hearing comes as Republican watchdogs Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa turn up the heat on the Obama administration’s stonewallers over Project Gunrunner. The State Department, Justice Department and ATF have failed to produce documents in a timely manner on a bloody initiative that has been tied to the deaths of at least two American law enforcement officials. Traver would be another goalong, get-along Chicago cog in the machine. Americans need someone who’ll strip the whitewash, not second-coat it. ________ Michelle Malkin’s nationally syndicated column appears in the PDN every Friday. Email: malkinblog@gmail.

A seal looks out from between a log and a pile of heaped kelp Thursday evening.

Beached seal likely molting on PA beach Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A juvenile elephant seal wedged between a log and an algae mat on Hollywood Beach is probably beginning to molt, said Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Research Coordinator Ed Bowlby. “This is normal,” Bowlby said Thursday. “It’s likely going into molt and could be here for a few weeks.” The seal will “go into the water when it wants to” and does not need food or water, he said. It should be left alone,

he cautioned. “Any interaction would be bad for it and bad for the people,” Bowlby said. Seals can transmit diseases to people or to their pets, and vice versa, he said. “It also can bite,” he said. The seal was reported to the sanctuary, which is based in Port Angeles, on Tuesday, said Bowlby, who has not yet determined its gender. It is at the far side on the beach from the stairs, out of the reach of usual activity. “It’s not obvious. You have to be looking for it to

see it,” he said. Arthur D. Feiro Marine Life Center volunteers erected a sign warning onlookers to keep their distance from the animal. Both center and sanctuary personnel are monitoring it, and reports are being made to the Northwest Stranding Network. The seal probably is not the same male juvenile elephant seal that came ashore at Hollywood Beach in January, Bowlby said. That seal had a cataract in one eye. This seal does not.

Two-year-old Cassie Mitchell looks at a beached elephant seal with her grandmother, Jan Sponberg of Port Angeles, on Thursday on Hollywood Beach in Port Angeles. Signs near the seal warn onlookers to keep their distance from the animal.

State bill would place solar projects at food banks By Robin Hindery

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Washington lawmakers are considering allowing community-funded solar energy systems to be installed at the state’s food banks — a step aimed at promoting renewable energy while reducing operating costs at the overstretched nonprofits. A bill moving through the state Senate would expand Washington’s 6-year-old renewable energy cost incentive program to include food banks and Shoreline Community College near Seattle as possible host sites for community solar projects. Under the projects, local groups — primarily resi-


dents or small businesses — pay to install solar power arrays at public facilities in exchange for an annual rebate of up to $5,000 for the electricity produced by each system. Additional financial incentives are available for systems that use state-manufactured components. The host facilities do not share in the rebates, but they benefit through lower electric bills, supporters say. The projects are part of a larger statewide push to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase renewable electricity generation. In 2006, Washington voters approved an initiative calling for electric utilities that serve more than

and $800 a month in electricity costs. “There’s more people coming, and it’s my job to find resources,” he told the Senate Ways and Means Committee at a public hearing Tuesday. “Strangely enough, I never thought the roof of our build-

ing would be a resource.” The setup would be a winwin for the food banks and the groups who pay for the systems, Coit said, adding: “They’re incentivized by the rebates, while we’re able to generate the power and use that to offset our costs.”

Peninsula Daily News for Friday/Saturday, April 1-2, 2011





No April fooling, license needed WE’VE ALL DONE it before (or at least I have). You head out to your favorite Matt hole in all your Schubert outdoor duds, you get to the water, and then you realize you forgot the one thing you need the most: Your fishing license. Surely a few rigs across the state will be busting U-turns this morning. After all, today is April 1, the start of the sport fishing/hunting new year in the Evergreen State. That waterproof piece of paper you’ve been toting to tributaries and tarns the past 12 months now holds the same value as Monopoly money. Anyone looking to drop a line in Washington’s pristine waters best get with the program and purchase a 2011-12 license. Those caught fishing without one will suffer the consequences: a hefty fine and public caning (OK, so I made that last one up). Anglers can renew their license by visiting or by calling 866-246-9453. A list of license vendors is available online at licensing/vendors.

Getting fresh Of course, one can always wait on that license. The way rivers are raging out west, it might be a while before anglers get another chance to fish. “It poured down rain like the second coming of Jesus,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-3746330) in Forks said. “There ain’t nothing fishable or anything close to it. “It’s going to be through the weekend before you can fish. [The rivers] are just rolling. I’ve seen them way higher, but as things go, [it’s] not good.” Once things do drop back in shape, there should be plenty of fish around. The Sol Duc has been particularly good during winter steelhead season. Now that spring chinook are starting to enter the Quillayute system as well, fishing could get even better. “Maybe after this big water, there will be some more around,” Gooding said of the springers. “It’s that time of year . . . where we’ll start seeing some more here and there.”

Saltwater stuff Mother Nature hasn’t been all that kind to the saltwater set, either, as of late. Brisk winds and wet conditions had anglers running for cover in Marine Area 5 (Sekiu), 6 (eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca) and 9 (Admiralty Inlet). Just a week ago, the fishing had been productive out near Port Angeles, according to Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-4522357) in Port Angeles. That seems to have died down a bit this week, however. “I’d say it slowed off a little bit, but that’s kind of the nature of blackmouth fishing,” Aunspach said. “I think those fish are very active in where they move around to. “They are feeding here one day, and they might be over there the next. If somebody doesn’t find them, we might be missing some good fishing.” It’s hard to tell where they’re hiding around the Sequim and Port Townsend areas. Much of the North Olympic Peninsula piscatorial crowd has flocked to the waters in and around Port Angeles of late. That should change this Saturday and Sunday with the coming of the Discovery Bay Volunteer Fire Fighters Salmon Derby. “April has always been a real good month for me in the past,” said Port Townsend angler Wayne Bibbins, who hasn’t been on the water the past few weeks.

Another 1st for Madison All-State honors 2nd year in row Peninsula Daily News

Peninsula Daily News

Jessica Madison of Port Angeles makes a move at the Class 2A state tournament last month. Madison was selected to the all-state team for second straight year.

SEATTLE — Port Angeles senior Jessica Madison finished her career as the Roughriders’ all-time leading scorer. Now, she may very well be the first Port Angeles girls basketball player to be named to The Associated Press All-State team two years in a row. Madison was one of six players selected to the Class 2A AllState first team in voting conducted by sports writers and editors from around the state and announced Thursday. It was the second straight season she was given all-state recognition, having been voted to the 3A team following her junior year in 2009-10. “It’s well deserved,” Port Angeles girls basketball coach Mike Knowles said. “She’s worked hard to get to where she’s been and where she is. “Every year she’s a scorer, she plays good defense and is a team leader. “Our team would not have got to the point we were this year if we didn’t have her stepping up and playing like she did.” Turn



UW’s Thomas stepping up Husky junior point guard declares for the NBA draft By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Isaiah Thomas’ statement announcing his intention to enter the NBA draft was straightforward. When Washington’s star guard was pressed about how serious he was, Thomas didn’t dance around the question. He’s done with college ball. It’s straight to the pros now. “It is a goodbye,” Thomas said Thursday in a conference call. “I’m sorry to say it but I feel like it’s just at the right time for me to make this decision and I’m just not going to hire an agent as of right now, not until I really feel like I need to.” It was a surprising decision by the junior, who in the moments after the Huskies lost to North Carolina in the third round of the NCAA tournament indicated he planned to return for his final season on Montlake. Instead, the talented, undersized guard is going to take his shot at the next level.

Won’t change mind Thomas said it doesn’t matter what the NBA talent evaluators say in the time between the decision and the May 8 deadline for underclassmen to withdraw their name from consideration and return to school. “I feel like with the guards coming out this year I have a chance of going high in the draft,” Thomas said. “I feel I can showcase my talent and like I said, I don’t feel like it’s a real strong draft class with the point guards this year and I’m just very confident in myself and I’ve prayed on this decision and feel it’s the right move for me and my family.” He was a two-time all-Pac-10

first-team selection and was in the running for player of the year honors in the conference before Arizona pulled away to win the regular-season title behind forward Derrick Williams. But Thomas saved some of his best play for the end of the year, especially in the Pac-10 tournament, where he played 123 of a possible 125 minutes in three games and hit the winning shot in overtime to beat Arizona 79-77 in the conference title game.

Most outstanding It was Washington’s second straight Pac-10 tournament title and Thomas was selected the most outstanding player. He was also an honorable mention AP All-America selection and finished the year averaging 16.8 points and 6.1 assists. “If Isaiah was going to come back to college it was going to be more just to be with his guys,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said Thursday night. “In Isaiah’s case, he was much more concerned with making it to the next level. That’s what he wanted.” Romar said he talked to NBA personnel following the Huskies’ season and the consensus was Thomas would be drafted, but there were no specifics on where he would go. “He’s always been doubted because of his size and this will be the ultimate experience for him to go out and obtain his goal,” Romar added. Thomas’ NBA value may be at its highest point as well. He spent more than half of this season playing point guard — likely the only position he could play in the NBA — after a season-ending injury to Abdul Gaddy. Previously, Thomas had

He finished with 10 or more assists five times after never reaching double figures in assists in each of his first two seasons at Washington.

At the same time, his scoring didn’t fall off, finishing his junior season with an almost identical scoring average to his sophomore campaign — 16.9 to 16.8 points. Thomas said he’s heard he could be drafted as high as the middle of the first round.

Forks loses 1-0 heartbreaker to Tenino Peninsula Daily News

TENINO — The Forks boys soccer team left the rain forest for the I-5 corridor to get in an Evergreen Division game despite two days of heavy rain in Western Washington. “One section of their field was pretty muddy but better than 3/4 of the field was in good

Preps shape,” Forks coach Brian Bowers said about the Tenino soccer field. The bad section was in the middle of the field as the Spartans avoided it by staying most of the game on the Tenino side,

outshooting the Beavers 25-8 but ending up on the short side of the stick, losing 1-0. “We controlled the ball and we outplayed them but we did not finish on two or three perfect crosses,” Bowers said. Tenino also has an outstanding senior goalkeeper that helped keep the Spartans out of

the goal. Forks fell to 2-3 in the Southwest Washington League and 2-4 overall. Spartan goalkeeper Sergio Chase had three saves of his own. Forks is taking next week off for spring break and won’t play again until April 11.

Final Four

Upset kids ready By Eddie Pells

Baseball off to chilly start, except in L.A. By Ben Walker

The Associated Press

With a hot beverage cup in both hands and a white parka pulled over her hooded sweat shirt, Marie Denissen was more than happy to be at Nationals Park. Chilly ALSO . . . weather? ■ M’s open No wortoday at r i e s . Oakland, Heck, it 7 p.m., FSN was opening day. “It’s still great,” said Denissen, from Highland, Md., during Thursday’s game between the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals. “You just have to have coffee instead of beer.” Pretty much the sentiment all across the majors. Get out your mitts — and mittens — and let’s play ball. Chipper Jones was ready, even though it was 41 degrees and damp in Washington. The ol’ pro got the first hit of the 2011 season with a double, and later scored the first run as Atlanta won 2-0 before a non-sellout crowd. No surprise, Dodger Stadium made for the most

Opening Day picturesque setting. It was sunny, with a gametime temperature of 85 as Tim Lincecum and the World Series champion San Francisco Giants played their old rivals. “I’m definitely excited. If you’re not nervous or antsy, something’s wrong,” said Don Mattingly, making his managerial debut with Los Angeles. At Yankee Stadium, there was a box of winter hats for players in the New York clubhouse. It was 42 degrees and misty for the first-ever March game in the Bronx. Rapper Jay-Z bundled up with his version of a “ballparka” — hoodie and coat — and there were pockets of empty seats as the Detroit Tigers took on the Yankees. Derek Jeter blew on his hands in the batter’s box, even though he already had batting gloves. The concession stand that seemed to be doing the best business at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City was Sheridan’s hot chocolate. Fans bundled against the chill, lined up five-deep, before the Royals hosted the

Los Angeles Angels. Mark Allred, a retired electrician from Kansas City, Mo., sat on the firstbase side about 15 rows from the field. The forecast called for highs around 50, with a 50 percent chance of rain and light winds. “It’s too bad we don’t have a nice day for this. It’s always such an exciting time,” Allred said. “Fans like me have been looking forward to baseball all the long winter and now it still feels like winter. But I don’t really care. Bring on the first pitch!” It was 41 degrees for the first pitch at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati — better than the previous day, when the Milwaukee Brewers and Reds worked out in the snow. Reds pitcher Edinson Volquez warmed up wearing a red-hooded sweat shirt and players took batting practice in stocking caps. Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said the trick for players was to ignore the temperature as much as possible. “It’s all mental,” Baker said. “Sometimes it really is cold. You’ve got to fool yourself.”

The Brewers didn’t seem to mind. Rickie Weeks and Carlos Gomez led off Milwaukee’s season with home runs, the first time a team had done that since 1969, when Pete Rose and Bobby Tolan did it for the Reds. Rose, in fact, was at the Brewers-Reds game.

Six games There were six openers Thursday, including games at St. Louis and Los Angeles. Baseball has tried in the past to avoid inclement conditions on opening day, occasionally beginning with most of the games on the West Coast and in the South, along with playing in places that had domes. That didn’t satisfy everyone, though. “You can’t every year open up in Anaheim or LA or San Diego, or nobody would ever get the first game of the year. You’ve got to mix it up. I’m fine with that,” said Padres manager Bud Black, whose team started Thursday in St. Louis. Quite a change from the sun-baked fields of spring training in Arizona and Florida. “Opening day, you don’t

feel the weather because you’re too excited. Opening day hasn’t been cold in the past,” Royals designated hitter Billy Butler said. “It’s the next few days after that when it gets really cold. The weather changes daily this time of year. But adrenaline will keep you warm.” The rest of the teams in the big leagues were scheduled to open on Friday. Everywhere, there were collection boxes set up at stadiums for donations to the relief efforts in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami. At St. Louis, six Cardinals Hall of Famers were introduced during the annual parade lap around the warning track at Busch Stadium, including 90-yearold Stan Musial, honored with the Congressional Medal of Freedom earlier this year. At Washington, it was drizzling during batting practice. Before the game, Nationals rookie reliever Brian Broderick tried on a red, covering-all-but-the-eyes ski mask, while nearby, a clubhouse attendant offered other players hand warmers.

HOUSTON — VCU arrived at the Final Four with its team, its bandwagon and its T-shirt. “There goes my bracket,” it says — an oh-so-fitting statement printed in gold letters and sandwiched between the school logo and the picture of a crumpledup piece of paper. Indeed, almost anyone who wins an office pool this year will limp home to their victory. Hardly anyone saw this coming. But for VCU, Butler, Connecticut and Kentucky, all of whom got their first look at the court tucked inside of Reliant Stadium on Thursday, this is a time to act like they expected it all along, to focus on winning a national championship that hardly seemed likely when the first ball was tipped back in October. Back then, VCU was listed as a 5,000-1 longshot in Vegas. Butler was figuring out how to replace NBA-bound forward Gordon Hayward and dream up a second act after almost winning it all last year, only six miles from its tiny campus in Indianapolis. Connecticut was picked 10th in the Big East.

No transition Kentucky was gearing up for a transition year after losing five key players to the NBA and freshman Enes Kanter to eligibility issues while awaiting a killer recruiting class for 2011-12. “I never thought we’d be sitting here,” Butler coach Brad Stevens said when asked what he thought of his team’s prospects in February, when the Bulldogs were 14-9 with a threegame losing streak. “But the season starts in October and it goes until at least March 1. You’re supposed to get better. It’s hard. But if you have guys willing to work through it, it can happen.” In the first semifinal Saturday, eighth-seeded Butler (27-9) will play 11thseeded VCU (23-11), in a matchup of underdog midmajors that some might consider more fitting for the Maui Invitational than a Final Four bracket. In the second game, it’s No. 3 Connecticut (30-9) vs. No. 4 Kentucky (29-8) in the rematch of a game that really was on the schedule in Maui. UConn won 84-67 back on Nov. 24.

Unexpected wins A trip to Houston wasn’t on anyone’s mind back then. “That game showed what we could be and certainly what John needed to fix,” UConn coach Jim Calhoun said of Kentucky’s John Calipari. “It turned out, I needed to fix some things, too, but it was later because the problems showed up in the Big East.” All these teams had problems during big portions of this season. All got better and started peaking around the beginning of March. That has culminated in probably the most inconceivable foursome in Final Four history — not a single No. 1 or 2 seed for the first time ever, and a group of teams chosen by a grand total of three people out of more than 8 million entrants in bracket contests run by ESPN and Yahoo. “At first, it was the selection and how we shouldn’t be in the tournament,” VCU point guard Joey Rodriguez said. “Then it became, we can’t do this in this game, we won’t be able to do that in that game. We keep proving people wrong, and now, we’re here.”

Ridge return Those who thought they saw the last of ski season at Hurricane Ridge have another think coming. Anyone with a pair of skis (or snowboard) and a healthy constitution can still head up the hill any day Hurricane Ridge Road is open and get five or six runs in. Next week, they can also look forward to a few more days of operational rope tows and lifts. Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club decided to open for at least one more weekend April 9-10; with the Poma lift and intermediate rope tow expected to be up and running. If enough people support the bonus weekend, the club will run again April 16-17. There is surely enough snow to make it happen, with the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center reporting more than 140 inches at its sensor atop the Ridge. Club member Lori Lynn Gray said plans are in the works to hold a special event April 9-10. Look for more details on that in future outdoors columns.

Lift ticket prices will remain the same: $12 for bunny hill only, $25 for intermediate and $27 for all lifts. Season Pass holders can ride all lifts for $10. For information on skiing the Ridge, visit

■ Derby days — Peninsula anglers get another blackmouth derby with the inaugural Discovery Bay Volunteer Fire Fighters Salmon Derby coming to the east side Saturday and Sunday. The waters inside this weekend’s derby boundaries produced the biggest fish during the Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby in February. Perhaps a few more of those are swimming around Discovery Bay proper. ■ Hike the Spit — The weatherman says the sun will actually peak out of the clouds at some point this weekend. When it does, a healthy jaunt through Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge would be a good way to scratch that hiking itch that’s been lingering the past few months. Hikers can expect to run into a wide array of shorebirds and might even see a few eagles, harbor seals or orcas; all without having to traverse any steep inclines. ■ Neal knows — River fishing guide and PDN columnist Pat Neal will host a class, Fishing the Olympic Peninsula, at Peninsula College this Monday night and next. The two-session class will meet at 6 p.m. each night in Room M125 on the Port Angeles campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Boulevard. Classes will focus on freshwater and estuary fishing for salmon, trout and steelhead. Students will learn the rich history of fishing in the area and methods to catch fish with their own gear.

Box 1330, Port Angeles, WA 98362; phone, ■ Lake warmup — The state lowland lakes opener is four weeks away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get reacquainted with a few year-round lakes. Leland and Teal lakes in Jefferson County received a few hundred cutthroat trout plants at the beginning of March. The one-pound fish could be ripe for the plucking now that the weather is beginning to warm up. Those in the Clallam County region could always run by Beaver Lake.

Even worse, I was forced to suffer the indignity of losing to my girlfriend in this year’s office pool. Talk about emasculating. Since I still consider myself something of a basketball aficionado, however, I can’t resist picking who will survive this weekend’s Final Four in Houston. The Vegas odds makers have pegged Kentucky the favorite at 10 to 11, but I’m more apt to believe Connecticut (3 to 2) will continue its stretch of tournament dominance. UConn already beat the Wildcats once this season in the Maui Invitational, and Kemba Walker is the best player left in the tourney. That being said, I’d love to see Butler pull it out.

Women’s coach Graves to remain at Gonzaga Takes Zags to Elite Eight; says no to UW By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

Kelly Graves wasn’t actively seeking a new gig. When the Pac-10 Conference came calling, specifically Washington, about a head coaching position Graves felt it only right to listen. What he heard wasn’t enough to persuade him to leave what he’s built into one of the top programs on the West Coast at Gonzaga. In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday afternoon, Graves said he has decided to remain at Gonzaga after brief discussions with Washington about its head coaching opening. “I really didn’t have any intentions on leaving, but I

was intrigued,” Graves said. Graves is coming off a stirring run by his Bulldogs to the Elite Eight, where they fell to Stanford 83-60 in the Spokane Regional final last Monday night. As a No. 11 seed, Gonzaga upset Iowa, UCLA and Louisville — all games played in Spokane before capacity crowds and led by star point guard Courtney Vandersloot — before losing to the Cardinal in the regional final. But just two days after losing to Stanford, Graves was spotted on the Washington campus on Wednesday. He poked his head inside Washington’s indoor football facility while Jake Locker and the rest of Washington’s pro prospects worked out for NFL scouts. Graves said he was already headed to Seattle for business and when Washington called asking to have some discussions

about their opening, the opportunity piqued Graves’ interest. He went back home to Spokane on Wednesday evening secure that Gonzaga is where he wanted to stay. “The reality is I’m really happy here,” Graves said. Graves’ name was linked with the Washington job almost immediately after Tia Jackson announced her resignation earlier this month after four lackluster seasons. Once a permanent resident among the top of the Pac-10, Washington has just two winning seasons since 2004-05. Washington hasn’t been ranked in the AP Top 25 since late in the 2003 season. A Washington spokesman said Thursday the school would not comment on its coaching search. It might have eased Graves’ decision that a con-

tract extension with Gonzaga had already been finalized even before the Bulldogs’ NCAA run. Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth said during the regionals that the school has tried to be proactive when it comes to its coaches and tried not to react based off interest from others. The extension is expected to be formally announced soon. Graves just completed his 11th season at Gonzaga and is 232-119 with the Bulldogs, including seven straight West Coast Conference titles. He said he doesn’t view being talked to by a school from a major conference as validation for what he’s helped build at Gonzaga. “It’s nice when people notice and want to talk to you or become interested,” The Associated Press Graves said. “This is a great place Gonzaga’s Kelly Graves reacts during the game against Stanford in the Elite Eight on Monday. and a great community.”

A-Rod nearly outearns Kansas City Royals By Ronald Blum

The Kansas City Royals are barely making more than Alex Rodriguez this year. The salaries for Kansas City’s 27 players on its opening-day roster and disabled list total $36.1 million, according to an analysis of major league contracts by The Associated Press. A-Rod alone makes $32 million atop the New York

Yankees’ $201.7 million payroll. He is baseball’s highestpaid player for the 11th straight year. Overall, baseball salaries were nearly flat this year. The average of the 844 players on opening-day rosters and disabled lists was about $3.3 million, up just 0.2 percent from last year. The increase was the lowest since a 2.7 percent drop in 2004.

Spend a Sunday afternoon with Mozart Grand Mass to fill PA auditorium By Diane Urbani

de la

Peninsula Daily News


PORT ANGELES — It sounds lightweight — “An Afternoon with Mozart.” Might this be a Sunday walk in the park, something the Peninsula Singers and conductor Dewey Ehling are doing on a whim? Quite a whim: The Grand Mass in C minor, which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote 229 years ago in Vienna, will fill the Port Ehling Angeles High School auditorium, 304 E. Park Ave., on Sunday with some of the most gorgeous music Ehling has ever encountered. And Ehling has engaged with many a masterpiece in his 70-plus years of performing with

Peninsula Weekend and directing orchestras and choruses. He’s known for leading the “Handel with Care” singalong “Messiah,” the “Nutcracker” orchestra and other groups across the North Olympic Peninsula. Late last year, he decided to embark upon the Grand Mass, an unfinished work for double chorus, two sopranos, a tenor, a bass and an orchestra. Ehling had led a performance of Mozart’s work about 30 years ago, when he was a choral director in Anchorage, Alaska. “I remembered it as being really a special mass, with arias unequaled even in opera,” he said this week. “What I forgot is how difficult it is.”

To perform with the 42-voice Peninsula Singers, Ehling hired four soloists from Seattle: sopranos Danya Clevenger and Janeanne Houston, tenor Ross Hauck and bass Barry Johnson.


Unfinished part Then he set about orchestrating the part of the Mass that Mozart Hauck didn’t complete. This task called on all of his musical knowledge, since he wants the complete work “to sound like Mozart, not Dewey Ehling.” “It’s been a wonderful challenge,” said the conductor, an octogenarian. “It is just the most glorious

music; I know it’s [Mozart’s] best choral work; it’s a shame people don’t get to hear it more.” The concert will begin at 2 Houston p.m. Sunday with a motet, “Ave, Verum Corpus,” sung in Latin; then comes the “Lacrimosa” from Mozart’s Requiem, and finally the Grand Mass. Johnson Accompanying the singers will be organist Sandy Rawson and a 25-piece orchestra with members from the Port Angeles Symphony and the Port Townsend Community Orchestra, which Ehling also directs. Musicologists still wonder, Ehling noted, why Mozart didn’t finish this mass. He began it in

1782, nine years before he died. “But perhaps he was human after all and started music he never got around to finishing,” said the conductor, adding that Mozart lived only 35 years. Ehling, naturally, is filled with anticipation right about now. When asked what possessed him to take on a project that would daunt a less-seasoned director, he laughed. “That’s part of who I am. I’m passionate about music,” he said. “I enjoy the challenge.” Tickets to “An Afternoon with Mozart” are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and free for children 12 and younger. Outlets include The Buzz cafe, 128 N. Sequim Ave., Sequim; and the Itty Bitty Buzz, 110 E. First St., Port Angeles. To learn more about the Peninsula Singers, visit www.

Coyote, Raven, Mink On this foolish night, “we will listen to the stories and wisdom of those masters of creative chaos: Coyote, Raven [and] Mink,” promised organizer Brian Rohr. Harvest Moon has one more to add ­— the sea otter. “That’s my crest and the animal that best represents me,” she said. “Sea otter loves to tease,” and so do she and her family — provided the teasing is 100 percent humorous, with no hurt or harm. Tonight’s “Trickster Tales” will unfold from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. Admission is a suggested donation of $12 to $25, though no one will be turned away, Rohr added. Proceeds will benefit the Boiler Room, a nonprofit, youthrun teen center, art gallery and coffeehouse at 711 Water St. in Port Townsend. Rohr can hardly wait to welcome Moses and Moon back to town for the third annual “Trickster Tales”; both tellers appeared in last April’s event. “Johnny Moses is one of the most popular storytellers in North America,” Rohr said. Moses has shared stories with thousands of people at the prestigious National Storytelling Festival in Jonesboro, Tenn.; at Lincoln Center in New York City; at the University of Washington; and at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colo. “In his tradition, there were no formal schools; wisdom and knowledge about all areas of life were handed down in stories,” Rohr noted. Moses offers each tale in English, traditional sign language and one of the eight native languages he speaks fluently. To learn more about him, visit

PORT TOWNSEND — Be careful on this particular evening, the storyteller Harvest Moon says. “I am a trickster, and I may do some April Fools’ jokes,” she warned, referring to her appearance tonight in “Trickster Tales,” a playful evening of live storytelling at the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave. Harvest Moon, a Quinault ambassador who lives in Olympia, is one in a triumvirate. She’ll share the stage with Johnny Moses of Seattle, a man she calls “the grand poo-bah of storytellers in the Pacific Northwest,” and Daniel Deardorff, the man behind the Mythsinger Foundation in Port Townsend.

For tonight, Moon is polishing her “Rolling Rocks” story about why we see those highway signs cautioning us about falling rocks. In this contemporary tale, Rolling Rocks is a young male with a brother named Quicksand who has many children, a mother named Crystal and a powerful father, Boulder Head. Moon is lighthearted when she tells her stories, but she hopes they will stay in the mind of the listener. “As weeks go by, whatever they may be doing, I hope that they may have a light bulb,” she said, “about ‘Oh, that’s what she meant,’ so they will understand how they can place [the story] in their life.” Families are invited to tonight’s gathering, though Rohr said parents should be aware that mature themes and language are part of the “Trickster Tales.” To learn more about this and other storytelling events in Port Townsend, visit www.brianrohr. com or phone 360-531-2535.

Leo the lion prowls the April evening sky Peninsula Daily News news sources

North Olympic Peninsula skywatchers know spring has arrived when they see Leo, the celestial lion, prowling the evening sky and driving winter’s constellations toward the western horizon. Leo, as many people born in midsummer know, is one of the 12 signs of the zodiac, the band of constellations through which the sun travels during its annual circuit around the sky. Leo is one of the larger constellations and, with a little bit of imagination, does look something like a lion. This diagram depicts the constellation Leo. It is easy to find in April. In the early part of the scope. The companion itself month, go out an hour or so is a double star, but you’ll after sunset and face southneed a fairly large telescope east.

would be the brightest star in our sky. Gamma Leonis, also known as Algieba, is the brightest star in the lion’s mane. Gamma is a double star, and its golden-yellow components are easily seen with a small telescope. It is about 125 lightyears away. The next star in the sickle is zeta Leonis, about 260 light-years away. Zeta has an easy-to-spot companion.

It isn’t a true binary system, however, as the stars don’t orbit each another; they just happen to lie in nearly the same line of sight. Astronomers call such stars “optical doubles.” This pair is easy to see with binoculars. A fairly prominent (depending on how dark the sky is) triangle of stars forms the lion’s hindquarters. Look for it well to the left of Regulus. The easternmost star of the triangle is Denebola, the second-brightest star in the constellation. It is about 36 light-years away. The other stars of the triangle are Zosma and Chertan. Zosma, the northernmost star of the triangle, is almost 60 light-years away. Chertan (sometimes known as Chort or Coxa) is about 180 light-years away. Leo is home to several galaxies, many of which can be seen with backyard telescopes. Look about 2½ degrees southeast of Chertan for the spiral galaxies known as M65 and M66. Although they’re rather small and faint, these galaxies can be seen with backyard telescopes, as long as

the sky is clear and dark.

Bright planets Venus still shines brightly in the east-southeast before sunrise throughout April. Saturn reaches opposition the night of Sunday through Monday. It will rise at sunset Sunday, will be visible all night and will set at sunrise Monday. It will be well up in the southeastern sky a few hours after sunset Sunday, so why not take a look? Many people are surprised to learn they can see Saturn’s rings with even a modest backyard telescope.

Spaceflight anniversary On April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space when he made a single orbit of the Earth in his Vostok capsule. Gagarin was 27 when he rocketed to fame and, though lionized by the Soviets, he never flew into space again. He was killed in 1968 when his MiG jet crashed during a training flight.

Wealthy investor buys paintings from church — then donates them back Man, 59, bought them for $24 million The Associated Press

LONDON — A wealthy investor has bought a series of 17th-century religious paintings from the Anglican church Thursday for $24 million and then gave them back so they can remain on public display. The Francisco de Zubaran paintings of Jacob and

his sons have been kept at Auckland Castle, the bishop’s palace in Durham, northeast England, since 1756. But earlier this year, the Church of England put the paintings up for sale in hopes of using the money to fund church ministry in poorer areas of England. Thousands of people in the region signed a petition asking that the paintings remain at the castle, and a

campaign was organized to keep them in Britain. Jonathan Ruffer, 59, an investor from the area, bought the pictures, even though he had never seen them. Talks are now on to see if access to the pictures — and the castle — can be expanded.

Ruffer said it was important to protect the historic pieces of art. Twelve of the paintings were completed between 1640 and 1645 by Zurbaran and the 13th, a portrait of Jacob’s youngest son, Benjamin, was done by copyist Arthur Pond.

ISSUES OF FAITH financially? Byers If some new job or opportunity had opened for them, surely they would have arranged lawn care, or there would have been a yard sale. We never saw a moving van parked in the driveway. Two weeks ago, I noticed the grass was again short and the curtains were gone. I could see inside, but the house looked hollow and cold. Today, a “For Sale” sign was planted by the big rock. I felt sick. I wanted to hug away any hurts they had, but I didn’t know how. I wanted to say something to help them, then I thought to myself, “What would I say if I had a chance?” Upon some reflection, I think I’d say: “Don’t give up. Don’t stop dreaming. Keep living life to the full. If you are Christians, don’t let go. If you are not, seek the one who had everything go wrong when he was doing everything right. He, too, knows about pain and loss and crosses. In his time, he can sort things out for you. He also knows about resurrections.” And if I were to choose a Bible promise for them, I would quote Romans 8:28: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.” To me, this verse emphasizes God’s creative work in turning a mess into something good. To the people who lived in the house by the road, if you happen to read this, know that a neighbor misses you, and today, she said a prayer for you.


_________ Issues of Faith is a rotating column by seven religious leaders on the North Olympic Peninsula. Carolyn Byers, an active leader in the Sequim Seventh-day Adventist Church, is in charge of its Sabbath School study program as well as the published author of several children’s books and numerous articles for church papers. Her email address is cfbyers@tfon. com.

THEY WERE OUR neighbors; they lived around the corner on the main road. Their curtains were open and the lights on just enough to give their house a happy, lived-in feeling. The house itself wasn’t pretentious. I calculated it had a kitchen, one bath and two bedrooms. An old barn and outbuildings flanked the backyard. We watched with interest when they added a small, two-story addition. From that new upstairs window, they doubtless could see the Olympic Mountains and watch eagles perch in the cottonwoods by the river. The family had two small children. The father was a tradesman who drove an old pickup. Occasionally, a dozen cars parked in their driveway and balloons decorated picnic tables in the backyard. After the cars left, paper cups littered the grass, but by the next day, the cups were gone. They had a dog — Rajah, by name. Rajah could navigate the busy road without mishap and sat for hours in the driveway watching for the old pickup to return to the house by the road. At Christmastime, strings of lights lit a live evergreen in the yard. In the spring, mounds of daisies curled around a big rock strategically placed at the entrance to the driveway. The summer grass was kept short, and a ladder was parked under the big cherry tree in the fall. We heard their family name once — the time when the mail lady mixed up our mail — but I don’t remember it now. Then, something changed at the house by the road. When I looked for Rajah, he wasn’t there. The curtains stayed closed, and no lights brightened the windows. The grass grew tall, and weeds popped up by the big rock at the driveway entrance. The driveway was vacant, except I think I did see the old pickup drive in from time to time. What happened? I don’t know. Sickness? A divorce? Was the father unable to work enough to pay house payments when the economy fell? Had the addition on the house sunk them

PORT ANGELES — St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 510 E. Park Ave., will offer its monthly Taize worship service Thursday at 7:30 p.m. This time of candlelight, silence, prayer and song started in the Taize community in France. All are welcome to this nondenominational service, which lasts less

than an hour.

Lutheran fellowship PORT LUDLOW — Peace Lutheran Fellowship will observe Sunday as a day of firsts: It will be the first day Pastor Elizabeth Felt, the fellowship’s first pastor, will take her place behind the pulpit. Felt graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., in 1986 and from the School of Theology and Ministry at Seattle University in 2010. She served her internship at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Everett and taught English and music in public schools from 2002 to 2009. Peace Lutheran Fellowship sponsors a community project called BackPacks for Kids, a service that sends food home on the weekends for students who are enrolled in weekday school lunch programs. It is coordinated by the school district, with labor and funding by the fellowship. Located on Beaver Valley Road six miles south of Chimacum, it is visible — to the left — at Milepost 3. Coming from state Highway 104, take Beaver Valley Road (19) and go north past Larson Lake Road for 0.3 miles, then turn right.

FDA to study food dyes, hyperactivity The Associate Press

WASHINGTON — A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel recommended Thursday that the agency further study the link between food coloring and childhood hyperactivity but said products that contain the dyes do not need package warnings. The committee, made up of doctors, scientists and consumer representatives, narrowly voted 8-6 that food packages don’t need warnings flagging food colorings that could affect attention deficit disorder in children.

List of colorings Packages now must list the food colorings, but there is no warning about a possible link to hyperactivity. The panel agreed with the FDA and affirmed that there is not enough evidence to show that certain food dyes cause hyperactivity in the general population of children. They also agreed that diets eliminating food dyes appear to work for some children with

behavior problems. The advisory committee reviewed links between the dyes and attention deficit disorder in a two-day meeting. The FDA has said it agrees with studies that say for “certain susceptible children,” hyperactivity and other behavioral problems may be exacerbated by food dyes and other substances in food. But it has found no proven effect for most children. The question for the panel and now for the FDA, which will review the panel’s recommendations and decide whether to take action, is whether the potential effect on a possibly small percentage of children — it is unclear just how many — should lead to further regulation. The agency is not expected to diverge from the panel’s advice. Public health advocates and academics studying the issue agree that dyes do not appear to be the underlying cause of hyperactivity, but they say that the effects of certain dyes on some children is cause enough to ban the additives.

Google Internet to start in Kansas •

SAN FRANCISCO — Google said it chose Kansas City, Kan., as the site of its planned Internet network, linking the Midwestern city’s residents to a system it says will be more than 100 times faster than most broadband access. The company reviewed proposals from almost 1,100 cities, finally selecting Kansas City because it offered opportunities to build efficiently, make an impact on the city and develop relationships with local organizations, according to Milo Medin, vice president of access services. Google plans to roll out access to the network, which needs approval from the city’s board of commissioners, in 2012w and will be “looking closely” for ways to bring the service to

‘Hundreds of millions’ The company said last year it may spend as much as “hundreds of millions” of dollars on such a project. “Over the past decade, the jump from dial-up to broadband has led to streaming online video, digital music sales, videoconferencing over the Web and countless other innovations that have transformed communication and commerce,” Medin said. “We can’t wait to see what new products and services will emerge as Kansas City moves from traditional broadband to ultra highspeed fiber-optic connections.”

The discount window, which predates the crisis by almost a century, was created to help commercial banks weather cash squeezes. The long list of banks that lined up at the window, which the Fed provided in the form of a daily loan register, shows a crisis stretching far beyond Wall Street. On Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008, for example, the Fed lent money to 60 different banks, in amounts ranging from $1,000 to

Borrowing from the discount window is considered a sign of weakness, and banks historically have avoided it if they can. From 2003 through 2006, the Fed lent an average of less than $50 million each week. By the summer of 2007, however, the central bank was increasingly concerned that a growing number of banks needed help but were unwilling to borrow. In August, the Fed slashed the cost of borrowing from the discount window by half a percentage point. Then it arranged for four of the nation’s largest banks, Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wachovia, to take what were described as symbolic loans of $500 million. By the peak of the crisis in late October and early November 2008, the volume of outstanding discount window loans reached above $100 billion.

plaints it’s now making against Google. This marks the first time that Microsoft has lodged a formal antitrust complaint with a government agency against one of its own rivals. In doing so, Microsoft hopes to encourage the European Commission to dig deeper into an investigation opened four months ago into Google’s business practices. The European inquiry was spurred by complaints made by several smaller websites. They contended Google was unfairly burying them in search results and highlighting the company’s own services instead.

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve lent billions of dollars to the nation’s largest banks during the financial crisis in the fall of 2008. It also lent $400,000 to the Eudora Bank, a community lender with a single location in the center of Eudora, Ark. Day after day in late October and early November, near the high-water mark of the Fed’s efforts to rescue Wall Street, the central bank also made dozens of similarly modest loans to small banks in communities across the country.

Several have since failed, including La Jolla Bank in Southern California, which took $6 million. The Fed released a complete list Thursday of banks that borrowed during the crisis from its discount window, its oldest and broadest emergency lending program. The central bank has long treated its interactions with banks as confidential ­— but a series of federal courts ruled that it had to provide information on its emergency lending programs in response to Freedom of Information Act requests filed more than two years ago by Bloomberg News and the Fox Business Network. Bankers expressed concerns about the release of the data, saying that the prospect of publicity will deter future borrowing. “I think it will make it harder for people to use the discount window in the future,” Jamie Dimon, chief executive of JPMorgan Chase, said Wednesday.

$26.5 billion. At least 10 of those banks have since failed.

The discount window mostly served the giant banks like Bank of America, Citigroup and Washington Mutual, whose struggles to survive the consequences of reckless lending and investment have defined the narrative of the crisis. But the discount window was unique because it was open to smaller banks, too. The other emergency programs were created during the crisis to support the trading and investment activities that are concentrated in New York.


Microsoft skewers Google in European antitrust complaint BRUSSELS — Microsoft Corp. escalated its attack on Google Inc. by complaining to European regulators Thursday that its fiercest rival is an Internet bully that abuses its dominance of online search and advertising.

It is also an ironic twist for Microsoft, whose control over how software operates on most personal computers has made it a frequent target of the types of com-

No fooling Abby on April Fools’ Day


DEAR READERS: It’s April 1, the day I get to share some of the occasional letters I receive from folks who are pulling my leg. Read on: Dear Abby: My wife of 23 years is threatening to divorce me on the grounds that I’m “unreasonable.” Is it unreasonable for me to attempt to keep my socks oriented to the proper feet? When I put my socks on the wrong feet, I run around in circles and become disoriented. I know women don’t have this problem because they wear panty hose — so it’s impossible to put them on the wrong feet. I sewed a bit of red yarn on the tops of my right socks so I could keep them straight. My wife says I’m crazy, but I insist, “Right on right; left on left.” So tell me, Abby — must I run in stupid circles and endure moments of disorientation and embarrassment? Or should I forgo the red yarn and hang in there with my wife to preserve our marriage? Disturbed Kentucky Man

Getting back to old hobbies or interests will have an impact on your ability to earn more cash. A geographical change will spark your imagination. 3 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put love first. How you relate to others will have a lasting effect on the way you approach people in the future. Make the first move and offer something that means a lot to you to someone you love. Use your charm and honesty. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can make some interesting changes to your home that will please anyone who lives with you. Be careful not to upset a friend or neighbor in the process. A problem will develop in the romance department if you are evasive. 2 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Compensate for someone who tends to exaggerate and you can avoid a potentially costly problem. Avoid traveling to locations that have unrest. You will face unexpected opposition. It’s best to focus on home, family and love. 4 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let indecision depress you. If you are having trouble making up your mind, rely on your intuition. Much can be resolved if you open up discussions with someone you are in partnership with or would like to be with. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get serious about your future. Take what you enjoy doing and incorporate your skills into a moneymaking endeavor that subsidizes a project you want to pursue. Hooking up with an old business partner will lead to greater opportunities. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Plan to have some fun. The stress you’ve been living with needs an outlet and, no matter what else is going on in your life, spending time with someone who makes you laugh or inspires you should be your plan. Love is looking good. 5 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Follow your heart and pursue your dreams, hopes and wishes. Talk to people behind the scenes who can offer you suggestions and wisdom in your pursuit. Don’t miss out on a romantic opportunity because you are too busy working. 3 stars

PORT ANGELES — If you’re thirsty for some salsa, Cuban son and chacha or curious about those sounds, Peninsula College has some free, live lunchtime music for you. Picoso, a seven-piece salsa band from Seattle, is coming over to the Little Theater at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., this Thursday. They will dish out the Latin songs, mixing in cumbia, reggaeton and more, from 12:35 p.m. till 1:25 p.m. Admission is free for all.

PORT ANGELES — If you’re a shower singer, a backyard juggler, a closet comic or a former soprano for the Metropolitan Opera of New York City, the Juan de Fuca Festival is looking — and listening — for you. The first-ever Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts Springfest Talent Show is set for April 30 at Port Angeles High School’s auditorium. So in a few weeks, performers of all ages and persuasions are invited to audition. The talent show tryouts will be held from 1 p.m. till 4 p.m. Saturday and Sun-

day, April 23 and 24, inside the Pirate Union Building, aka the PUB, at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Each solo performer or group should prepare a five-minute program. The Springfest Talent Show judges encourage artists in all genres: singers, dancers, musicians, jugglers and mimes, as well as those whose talents don’t fit neatly into a category.

Show off your skills Bring “whatever skills you want to share with the world,” said Dan Maguire, the new executive director of the Juan de Fuca Festival. There’s no charge to audition for April’s talent

show, but artists should phone or email ahead to reserve a time slot. “We’re starting to fill up our signup sheet,” said Carol Pope, Juan de Fuca’s education director. To make a reservation, phone the festival office at 360-457-5411 or email dan The tryout judges — including Karen Hanan of Arts Northwest, Jake Seniuk of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, Scott Nagel of Olympic Peninsula Celebrations, and Peninsula College student programs director Rick Ross — will select at least 15 acts for the Springfest Talent Show. That event will be at the Port Angeles

Fish, pulp, paint, beads create ‘Sustainability’

By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Spotlight

SEQUIM — Feel free to “thump the chum,” Margaret Owens says, adding that her artwork is quite sturdy. But these chum, aka dog salmon, look fierce. They’re baring their teeth, they’re swimming like mad, “they’re hellbent for recycling,” adds Owens, the Joyce artist who made these fish out of two weeks’ worth of newspaper. Yes, she pressed wet Peninsula Daily News pulp into salmon-shaped plaster molds, let it dry, then extracted it and painted the chum onto a big canvas for “The Art of Sustainability,” the new exhibition at the Museum & Arts Center in Sequim.

Earth Day theme Owens’ “Fish to Trees — Trees to Fish” is one of 66 works on display at the MAC, 175 W. Cedar St., during tonight’s First Friday Art Walk. The Earth Day-oriented show will stay up through April 30, and admission is free to the museum, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. More information about “The Art of Sustainability” awaits at www. Owens says the school of salmon represents Mother Nature’s knack for sustainability: The totemic fish, throughout life and death, nourish the rivers, forests, seas and people of the Northwest. Thus they recycle themselves, the artist says.

She knows from recycling, having been making fish sculptures from old newspaper for years now. Things have come full circle in another way, in the home she shares with her husband, Chuck Owens. He made his living as a fisherman here, and now that he’s retired, “he’s a paper boy,” delivering the PDN, Owens said, leaning back into a big laugh. Owens’ work is just one example of how artists define sustainability, said exhibition curator Renne Brock-Richmond. After installing the show last Tuesday, she marveled at what she calls a “mix of medium, mindfulness and very different messages.” In “The Art of Sustainability,” there are tributes to organic farming in the Dungeness Valley; images of lavender and strawberry fields; jewelry made of found objects, photography celebrating women’s friendships, and dozens of other interpretations of healthy living. And there’s Linda Walnum’s African warrior doll, made of things she found lying around her house: a scrap of faux leopard fur, a twig for a spear, beads and yarn. “It takes a village to raise a warrior,” Walnum quipped upon delivering her doll to the MAC last week. “It takes all of us together to make a valuable member of the community,” added an inspired Brock-Richmond. With another piece she contributed to the show, Walnum demonstrates the art of jewelry from odds and ends. She brought in a

Joyce artist Margaret Owens contributed this piece to “The Art of Sustainability” show at Sequim’s Museum & Arts Center. necklace made of pieces found long ago on the streets of San Francisco: washers, wire, a metal drain cap, an earring. It’s been around a while, she said, so “I thought I’d recycle it,” in the new show.

Gloria Skovronsky’s necklace made of recycled ingredients is part of “The Art of Sustainability,” the new monthlong exhibition at the Museum & Arts Center in Sequim.

Finding the connection Part of the fun of this exhibition is finding connections between the differing pieces, said BrockRichmond. It feels to her like a connect-the-dots puzzle, one that reveals a picture of the diverse artistic community here. “The Art of Sustainability” is one of many stops on the Sequim First Friday Art Walk map. From 5 p.m. till 8 p.m., a variety of other venues will stay open to display local artists’ work and serve refreshments. Among tonight’s exhibits: ■  Robert Reed’s fine art

photography, along with music by Sarah Shea and Chez Jazz, fill the Sequim Library at 630 N. Sequim Ave.; ■  Fused-glass artist Jonathan Koeppe Patton and veteran painter Bob Stem are showing their

creations in the newly renovated Blue Whole Gallery, 129 W. Washington St.; ■  Photographic art by Ken Beale is on display inside The Dove’s Nest, 139 W. Washington St.; ■  “Chef’s choice” snacks, local artists and

Karen Hackenberg’s painting, “Mermaid,” is on view at the Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend, another Saturday Gallery Walk venue.

Venues open doors for PT Gallery Walk By Diane Urbani de la Paz

Peninsula Spotlight

PORT TOWNSEND — This Saturday night’s Gallery Walk will take art lovers to the beach, into daydreams and down under downtown. As they do every first Saturday of the month, a variety of venues will keep their doors open from 5 p.m. till 8 p.m. — and later in some cases — to invite the public in for conversation and refreshments. Admission, as always, is free at each location. ■  At Gallery 9, 1012 Water St., multimedia artist Cynthia Thomas and porcelain potter Diana Cronin are presenting a wide variety of work. Thomas, from Sequim, is showing pieces from her “Picture in the Mind” series, in which she depicts a mask with a scene inside its forehead: of a warm desert, a sunny beach or some other idyllic spot. “As you’re going through your mundane day, these are the pictures in your mind,” the artist muses. Thomas will also display a series of paintings honoring long-term friendships. Cronin, meantime, is

exhibiting hand-thrown pots — which she loves because they take “simple, earthy, natural materials like clay, silica and feldspar [to create] a product more interesting than its parts.” ■  At the Northwind Arts Center, 2409 Jefferson St. just off Sims Way, the new “Material World” show brings together Terry Leness and Karen Hackenberg’s views of sunlight, sea and shadows. While Leness is drawn to elderly buildings and eccentric landscapes, Hacken-

berg paints beaches dotted with debris; both artfully juxtapose the natural and the artificial. ■  The Undertown, downstairs at 211 Taylor St., presents paintings and sculpture by longtime Port Townsender Lee Katzenbach and photography by high school student Roman Meza. Both artists will be on hand to answer questions from 6 p.m. till 8 p.m. ■  The Owl Sprit Cafe, 218 Polk St. just off Water Street, is spotlighting painter Jeff Tocher’s whimsical wildlife images, as well as the giant owl mural he’s given the place. Appetizers, art and the artist await from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. ■  The Port Townsend Gallery, 715 Water St., offers glittering beaches by Kathy Francis and light-

filled jewels by Kristen Wade. Francis, a plein aire painter, pays tribute to the effects of light and weather on the sea, while Wade creates dichroic — from the Greek word for two-colored — fused glass jewelry. ■  Artisans on Taylor, 236 Taylor St., is hosting what owner Anna Nasset calls a particularly “edgy” show of nude photography and collages by Michael Gesinger, assemblage by Michael deMeng, and tattoo art and performance by Thomas Pendelton, Alex Acosta, Eric Walsh and Jake Mellow. Saturday will bring “a night of performance and art . . . You will experience beauty of a different style; pieces that will challenge you to take a different look at the forms of art that exist within our society,” Nasset said.

Sequim artist Cynthia Thomas’ series of daydreams is on view at Gallery 9, one of the stops on Port Townsend’s Saturday night gallery walk.

SEQUIM — Olympic Theatre Arts will hold auditions for its summer production of James Prideaux’s “The Housekeeper� at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 9, and at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 12. This two-character comedy pits a failed, self-published author and mama’s boy against a dizzy, kleptomaniacal housekeeper. Their relationship progresses from initial reserve to active hatred, and murder is contemplated before the unexpected conclusion. Director Sharon Delabarre is looking for a pair of actors: a man of 45 to 55 and a woman of about the same age. Tryouts will be held at Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave., and the play will take the stage from June 24 through July 17. For more details, phone Delabarre at 360683-1828, and to see more about OTA’s activities, visit
