Party crasher steals Hilton birthday cake PARIS HILTON’S 30TH birthday bash in Hollywood didn’t turn out totally sweet: A party crasher named Paz swiped the star’s extravagant birthday cake — a $3,200 concoction with Lucidbrand absinthe mixed into the batter. Paz bragged about the caper at length on a long Facebook note, “I crashed Paris Hilton’s Birthday Party and Accidentally the Whole Cake.” “I woke up this morning with a birthday cake in my living room,” wrote Paz. “It’s big. It’s red. It says ‘Paris’. And its [expletive] delicious.” According to his Facebook page, Paz is a Hollywood-based musician and a Yale University graduate, who cites Tim McGraw, Kanye West and “Hollywood’s most influential promoters” among his fans.

Mr. Frazier, who was born in Liberty, N.C., played parts of four seasons in the major leagues as an outfielder for Cleveland, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Baltimore in the early 1950s. He batted .241 with 10 homers in 217 games, then went on to a long career as a minor league coach and manager before getting his big break with the Mets. In 1976, his only full season as a major league manager, Mr. Frazier guided the Mets to 86 victories and a third-place finish in the National League East behind star pitchers Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Jon Matlack. But the team faltered in 1977, and Mr. Frazier was fired after New York won only 15 of its first 45 games. He was replaced by

Wisconsin GOP urges Dems to return, vote By Ryan J. Foley

The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Republicans on Sunday upped the pressure on Democrats who fled to Illinois to return home and vote on an anti-union bill, with the governor calling them obstructionists and a GOP lawmaker threatening to convene without them. Gov. Scott Walker said the 14 minority Democrats who left Madison on Thursday were failing to do their jobs by “hiding out” in another state. And Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said his chamber would meet Tuesday to act on non-spending bills and confirm some of the governor’s appointees even if the Democrats don’t show up — a scenario that should outrage their constituents. Senate Democrats acknowledged that the 19 Republicans could pass any item that doesn’t spend state money in

their absence. The budget-repair bill they have been blocking requires a quorum of 20 senators to pass, while other measures require only a simple majority of the chamber’s 33 members.

Democrats standing firm Nonetheless, Democrats said they were standing firm in their opposition to the budget-repair bill, which would take away the right of most public employees to collectively bargain for their benefits and working conditions. Hundreds of protesters filled the Capitol for a sixth straight day, noisily calling on Walker to drop the plan they consider an assault on workers’ rights. Mary Bell, the president of Wisconsin’s powerful teachers’ union, called on teachers to return to work as scheduled today rather than continue absences to protest that have shut down public

schools across the state. She said unions agreed to cuts in health care and retirement benefits that could reduce takehome pay for many workers by about 8 percent, and it was time for the Republican governor to compromise. In a Sunday morning interview from Madison with Fox News, Walker said he did not believe union leaders were really interested in giving up their benefits, and cities, school districts and counties will need weakened unions to cut spending for years to come. Walker said he would not compromise and predicted Wisconsin would pave the way for other states to follow suit, much like it did with welfare reform and school vouchers in the 1990s. “We’re willing to take this as long as it takes because in the end we’re doing the right thing,” Walker said.

Briefly: World Iran warship trip could further mar Middle East CAIRO — Iran’s first attempt in decades to send warships through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean on Europe’s — and NATO’s — southern flank could further destabilize the Middle East, a region already reeling from an unprecedented wave of anti-government rebellions. Egypt’s new military rulers, who took power from ousted Hosni Mubarak a little more than a week ago, have granted two Iranian warships passage through the strategic waterway — something Israel has made clear it views as a provocation. Still, Egypt appeared to have no other choice because an international convention regulating shipping says the canal must be open “to every vessel of commerce or of war.” Iranian warships have not passed through the Suez Canal since 1979. The vessels bound for Syria are not expected to enter the canal before Tuesday or Wednesday, according to maritime sources in Egypt. On Sunday, the frigate Alvand and the supply ship Kharq were still near the southern entrance to the canal.

NATO investigation KABUL, Afghanistan — Tribal elders in a remote part of northeastern Afghanistan claimed Sunday that NATO forces killed 64 civilians in air and ground strikes over the past

four days. The international coalition denied the claim, saying video showed troops targeting and killing dozens of insurgents. Coalition and Afghan officials plan to go to the Ghazi Abad district of Kunbar province, a hotbed of the insurgency, today to investigate. Civilian casualties have been a constant source of friction between coalition troops and Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Tribal elders told the provincial governor that air strikes hit a village in the area and that “women and children had been killed inside their houses,” said Nawrdin Safi, a member of the Kunar provincial council.

Police fire on crowd ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast —Witnesses said security forces fired on protesters for the second consecutive day in Ivory Coast’s biggest city, following a call for an “Egypt-style” uprising to depose sitting president Laurent Gbagbo. The witnesses said military police encircled a group of supporters of Alassane Ouattara in the Abobo district of Abidjan on Sunday afternoon, before opening fire. There were reports of several injured, though their numbers could not be independently verified. An African Union delegation is due to arrive today to attempt to find a resolution to the crisis. Gbagbo is refusing to cede power even though results certified by the United Nations showed Ouattara had won the Nov. 28 election. The Associated Press

Libya launches harshest crackdown yet on rebels By Sarah El Deeb The Associated Press

CAIRO — Security forces loyal to Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi unleashed heavy gunfire Sunday on thousands marching in a rebellious eastern city, cutting down mourners trying to bury victims in a bloody cycle of violence that has killed more than 200 people in the fiercest crackdown on the uprisings in the Arab world. Protests were even reported to have spread to downtown Tripoli and a coastal city only about 45 miles to the west of the capital. In Benghazi, site of the funeral clashes, pro-Gadhafi forces were chased from a presidential compound by other troops sympathetic to the anti-government demonstrators, a witness said. Western countries expressed concern at the rising violence against demonstrators in oil-rich Libya, which is sandwiched between friendly neighbors Egypt and Tunisia — where long-serving leaders were successfully toppled in recent weeks. British For-

Quick Read

eign Secretary William Hague said he told Gadhafi’s son, Seif alIslam, that the country must embark on “dialogue and implement reforms,” the Foreign Office said. In the first-known defection from Gadhafi’s regime, Libya’s representative to the Arab League said he resigned his post to protest his government’s decision to fire on defiant demonstrators in the second-largest city of Benghazi. Also, a major tribe in Libya was reported to have turned against Gadhafi.

‘We are not afraid’ “We are not afraid. We won’t turn back,” said a teacher who identified herself only as Omneya. She said she was marching at the end of the funeral procession on a highway beside the Mediterranean and heard gunfire from just over a mile away. “If we don’t continue, this vile man would crush us with his tanks and bulldozers. If we don’t, we won’t ever be free.”

Omneya, who spoke by telephone, said one of those being buried was a toddler killed Saturday. Eyewitness reports trickling out of the isolated country where the Internet has been largely shut down and journalists cannot work freely suggested that protesters were fighting back more forcefully against the Middle East’s longestserving leader.

‘State of war’ Benghazi is “in a state of war,” said Mohamed Abdul-Rahman, a 42-year old merchant, who described how some protesters burned a police headquarters. Protesters throwing firebombs and stones got on bulldozers and tried to storm a presidential compound from which troops had fired on the marchers, who included those carrying coffins of the dead from Saturday’s unrest in the eastern city, a witness said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of fears of reprisal.

LIAM NEESON HAS proven himself a known quantity again at the box office. Neeson’s thriller, “Unknown,” debuted as the No. 1 movie with $21.8 million, following in the footsteps of his 2009 action hit “Taken,” according to studio estimates Sunday. Another action tale, “I Am Number Four,” opened at No. 2 with $19.5 million. “Unknown” stars Neeson as a botanist who awakens from a coma to find his wife claims she does not know him and that another man has taken his identity. “I Am Number Four” stars Alex Pettyfer as a teenage alien refugee on Earth who develops superpowers to battle the invaders that destroyed his planet.

A DELTA PLANE’S engine failed in mid-air over Florida, forcing the flight to make an emergency landing Sunday morning, authorities said. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said it was a so-called “contained” engine failure, meaning small parts such as fan blades came out the back of the engine. A more dangerous scenario would be if the pieces penetrated the engine’s cover and were uncontained. It was not immediately clear what caused the failure, Bergen said. Sheriff’s deputies recovered pieces of what appeared to be the damaged engine from an area near the Fort LauderdaleHollywood International Airport.

Many videos show bloody live enactments or graphic photos of people cutting their arms or legs with razors or other sharp objects, the study found. Many also glamorize self-injury, and few videos discourage it, the study authors said. They also feature haunting music and rich imagery that may attract young self-injurers and trigger the behavior, especially in those who have just started to self-injure, the authors suggest.

A SHOOT-EM-UP VIDEO game set in the border town of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, has angered local officials who are busy fighting all-too-real violence. Chihuahua state legislators said Sunday they have asked federal authorities to ban a the game, “Call of Juarez: The Cartel,” which is based on drug cartel shootouts in Ciudad Juarez. About 6,000 people died in drugrelated violence in Ciudad Juarez in 2009 and 2010, making the city, located across from El Paso, Texas, one of the deadliest in the world. The website of game developer Ubisoft Entertainment SA said the title is due for release this summer.

Pratt & Whitney is building the jet’s main engine and General Electric is developing the backup. Lockheed-Martin is the general contractor. A yes vote was to cut military spending. Dicks voted yes. ■  COMMUNITY POLICE GRANTS: The House on Wednesday voted, 228 for and 203 against, to spend $228 million in fiscal 2011 for the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program and reduce NASA’s space-exploration budget by the same amount. This would continue a Democratic program targeted for elimination by the Republicans’ budget-cutting plan (HR 1, above). The COPS program provides local police departments with grants for putting officers on the beat and buying crime-fighting technology. A yes vote was to continue the COPS program. Dicks voted yes. PATRIOT ■  USA ACT: Voting 86 for and 12 against, the Senate on Tuesday passed a bill (HR 514) to extend for 90 days the three sections of the USA Patriot Act that have not yet been added permanently to the U.S. Code. Congress will determine whether to make the sections permanent or continue to subject them to periodic congressional review. The House later sent the bill to President Obama (above). The USA Patriot Act was enacted Oct. 26, 2001, in response to the 9/11 attacks. In part, the law authorizes expanded police powers over phone, e-mail and Internet usage; permits secretive searches of suspects’ homes; allows the extended jailing of noncitizens without the filing of charges; allows prosecutors to release secret grand jury testimony to intelligence agencies; extends Treasury Department authority over financial institutions; allows the FBI to issue subpoenas for personal records without prior court review;

and makes it a federal crime to possess large quantities of biological agents or toxins. A yes vote was to temporarily extend the three sections. Cantwell voted yes; Murray voted no. ■   A I R P O R T SCREENERS’ RIGHTS: Voting 47 for and 51 against, the Senate on Tuesday refused to block an administration plan to provide Transportation Security Administration personnel with limited collective-bargaining rights. Under the plan, TSA employees such as passenger screeners would be empowered to bargain over working conditions but could not strike or bargain over pay. They would receive essentially the same bargaining rights now granted workers at agencies such as the U.S. Capitol Police and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This vote defeated a GOP amendment to a Federal Aviation Administration funding bill (S 223). A yes vote opposed collective-bargaining rights for TSA employees. Cantwell and Murray voted yes. ■  INTERNET NEUTRALITY: Voting 244 for and 181 against, the House on Thursday stripped the Federal Communications Commission of funding to advance its recent rule aimed at keeping the Internet equally available to all users. The FCC said the rule is intended to preserve “net neutrality,” in part by preventing different levels of broadband service. Critics said the agency lacks authority to regulate the Internet. The amendment was attached to a GOP bill (HR 1) to cut fiscal 2011 spending. A yes vote backed the amendment. Dicks voted no. ■  GREENHOUSE GASES: The House on Wednesday voted, 239 for and 185 against, to sharply reduce funding for the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program under which power plants, refineries and other major polluters must disclose emissions data to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Dicks voted no. ■  FEDERAL AVIATION BUDGET: Voting 87 for and eight against, the Senate on Thursday passed a $35 billion two-year authorization of federal aviation programs. The bill (S 223) uses a combination of general appropriations and user fees such as fuel and passenger-ticket taxes to fund the U.S. aviation system. The bill continues the Essential Air Service program that subsidizes commercial service to small cities. The bill releases $400 million annually from the Aviation Trust Fund to finance a sweeping modernization of the air-traffic control system. This upgrade will gradually replace the existing ground-based system with a satellite-based system that, among other advances, will use Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to provide pilots with actual displays of nearby air traffic. The bill raises taxes on aviation fuel from 21.8 to 35.9 cents per gallon, retains the $4.50 tax on passenger tickets for each takeoff and landing, increases the number of flights between the West Coast and Washington’s Reagan National Airport, requires foreign stations that service U.S. aircraft to meet American standards for criminal background checks on employees and sets safety standards for helicopters’ emergencymedical services. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Cantwell and Murray voted yes. ■  AVIATION BUDGET CUTS: Voting 51 for and 47 against, the Senate on Tuesday tabled (killed) an amendment to S 223 (above) to cut the Federal Aviation Administration budget by more than $2 billion annually, to the fiscal 2008 level of $14.7 billion. A yes vote was to kill the amendment. Cantwell and Murray voted yes. ■  AIR-SERVICE SUBSIDIES: The Senate on Thursday voted, 61 for and 38 against, to preserve the Essential Air Service program, which uses $200 million annually in taxpayer subsidies to provide commercial service to some

1.1 million travelers in more than 150 small cities and rural outposts. The vote tabled (killed) an amendment to S 223 (above) to end the program. A yes vote backed the Essential Air Service program. Cantwell and Murray voted yes. ■  REPUBLICAN SPENDING CUTS: Voting 235 for and 189 against, the House on Saturday passed a Republican bill (HR 1) to reduce nonsecurity discretionary spending by $60 billion below current levels in the remaining seven months of fiscal 2011. This amounts to a cut of 13 percent when averaged over the full year and 22 percent between March 4 and Sept. 30. The bill edges defense spending higher over the seven months while slightly cutting homeland-security spending and programs under the jurisdiction of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs. Both sides agreed the bill would worsen U.S. unemployment, although Republicans argued that by helping to restore fiscal stability, it would promote economic growth. The bill awaits Senate action on a competing Democratic measure. The government is likely to be shut down March 4 if the parties fail to settle their differences by then or pass another temporary extension of current spending levels. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Dicks voted no. ■  PLANNED PARENTHOOD: Voting 240 for and 185 against, the House on Friday ended federal funding this fiscal year for Planned Parenthood of America, a private organization that provides reproductive health services at 800 clinics nationwide. Planned Parenthood provides abortions, but in keeping with a prohibition in federal law known as the Hyde Amendment, it cannot use federal funds for that purpose. Abortions are a legal medical procedure in the United States under the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. This vote during debate on HR 1 (above) would deny the organization $75 million or more in federal funding. A yes vote backed the amendment. Dicks voted no.

LONG BEACH — Federal officials want to expand the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge by more than 6,800 acres, but the Pacific County Commission is opposed over worries it will take away valuable timberland. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s recently completed conservation plan calls for the expansion plus a new refuge headquarters near Long Beach and a new interpretive trail and wildlife observation deck. The commission objects to the expansion taking commercial forestry land. Jon Kaino, one of the commissioners, said he worries it would hurt the logging industry.

‘Human cartoon’ comes to PA Thursday By Diane Urbani de la Paz

PORT ANGELES — He’s been called a lot of things: the “human cartoon,” funniest “young, young” comedian in the Rocky Mountain West. Vargus Mason, a working comedian since third grade, is coming to the PUB at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., to provide some midwinter comic relief Thursday. Just don’t expect him to “stand at the microphone,” as he puts it, “and tell jokes.”

the kids to bend their brains in a different way.”

PORT TOWNSEND — In an effort to take control of their own educational options, a group of students is staging a benefit this week to support tutoring programs. “The kids are doing everything from cooking the meals to providing the entertainment to waiting tables,” said tutor Jonathan Safir, “They are producing the event all by themselves.” The fundraiser, titled “Brainstorm: Learning to Perform, Performing to Learn,” takes place at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Upstage Theatre and Restaurant, 523 Washington St. There will be a spaghetti dinner and live entertainment to include music, dance performances, spoken word, magic and art — all for $10, although larger donations will be accepted. The idea for the benefit came from the students, who were looking for ways to better understand mathematics and fill the gaps in the instruction provided at the high school. “This is a better learning environment,” said Hanna Onnemyr-Cole of the tutoring process. “Not to say anything bad about the high school, but the classes were big, and the teacher wasn’t experienced.” The high school isn’t taking this negatively. Principal Carrie Ehrhardt supports the program and has endorsed Safir as an inde-

grades have improved dramatically.” So far, the students have organized small independent study groups for geometry, algebra 2 and pre-calculus, but this is only the beginning. The purpose, according to Onnemyr-Cole, is for the program to grow into a way for students to connect with the community and to find creative ways to supplement high school education with

independent study programs, tutoring and workshops in academic and artistic subjects. Onnemyr-Cole said Safir makes math come alive. “I don’t really know what I will be using it for,” she said of pre-calculus. “But Jonathan provides a lot of real-life examples, so the material doesn’t feel for-

eign to me.” Safir works with individuals or in groups as large as nine students. “A lot of the stuff you learn with math is very abstract and is like a puzzle,” Safir said. “But when you find the solution, it can be really satisfying. There is an elegance in these solutions that forces

PORT ANGELES — Virginie Bourgue, Olympic Cellars consulting winemaker, will talk with members of the Olympic Peninsula Enological Society at the winery at 5 p.m. Sunday. Bourgue, who joined the winery last fall, will speak about what changes her experience and time in Provence, France and in Walla Walla will bring to the winery at 255410 U.S. Highway 101, between Port Angeles and Sequim. Bourgue replaces French winemaker Benoit Murat, who returned to France on Aug. 31 on sabbatical to pursue a National Diploma of Oenology at Ecole National Superieure Agronomique de Toulouse, aka ENSAT. The school is one of only five institutions in France offering an advanced degree in oenology, the science of wines and winemaking. A native of Provence, Bourgue is the owner and winemaker at Lullaby, a boutique winery located in Walla Walla, and provides consulting services in the areas of viticulture and winemaking. Her rose and three wines from Boushey Vineyards will be available for tasting,

Safir said the small group format is essential for the success of the tutoring process; just as important is the kids end up teaching the material to each other. “That is essentially the biggest part of how this method works, how the kids build relationships with each other and discover how each person’s brain works in a different way.” They’ve had help along the way, the Printery provided professional-quality posters, and Onnemyr-Cole’s father, Mark Cole, owns the Upstage. But there are no “ringers” performing. The students who will benefit from the fundraiser are all working the event, essentially singing for their supper.

State prison inmates older, more violent Penal system accounts for 5% of budget By Nicholas Geranios The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The population of state prison inmates has become whiter, older and more violent in the past decade, an Associated Press review of Department of Corrections records has found. And while running the prison system eats up 5 percent of the state budget, there appear to be few places that funding can be cut without resorting to releasing inmates early, as some states have done. “The main way to save money is to close a facility and lay off staff,” said Tom McBride, a spokesman for the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, whose members are concerned the state is running out of prison beds. “When you look at our prison population, it’s hard to find anybody who doesn’t deserve to be there.”

Change from reforms Indeed, reforms started in the 1980s have dramatically changed the prison system’s population. While Washington has a relatively small prison population, about 17,000 for a state of 6.6 million people, the percentage of inmates serving time for violent crimes is higher than the national average. The idea of releasing some inmates early to help reduce the projected $4.6 billion deficit in the next two year state budget is being discussed in Olympia, officials say, although no bill has been introduced.

“When you look at our prison population, it’s hard to find anybody who doesn’t deserve to be there.”

Tom McBride Association of Prosecuting Attorneys spokesman

“We have taken no position on that,” said John Lane, of Gov. Chris Gregoire’s policy office. At a legislative hearing on Wednesday, Steve Aos of the Washington State Institute for Public Policy estimated that cutting 60 days off the sentence of low and moderate risk offenders could save the state $4.6 million a year, with just a 15 percent probability that crime would rise as a result.

Saving millions The Corrections Department cannot release inmates early without authorization from the Legislature. The Corrections Department closed an expensive prison for elderly inmates in Yakima last year, consolidating most of those inmates at the Coyote Ridge prison near Pasco. It is now preparing to close the McNeil Island Corrections Center in Puget Sound in April. The majority of the inmates in Washington prisons are being held for violent crimes like murder, rape and assault, according to figures provided by the state Department of Corrections. There were 11,835 inmates (69 percent) serving time for violent crimes

in 2010, and 5,240 (30 percent) serving time for drugs, property crimes or the category of “other.” Nationally, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported that 52.4 percent of state prison inmates were doing time for violent crimes in 2008, the latest year available. In Washington, the big change in the prison population has been the reduction of people serving time for drugs. That fell from 3,208 in 2000, 21 percent of inmates, to 1,714 by 2010, 10 percent of inmates. The reduction is a result of various state laws that reduced sentences for many drug crimes while increasing them for violent crimes. It is not clear if more violent inmates mean that conditions inside the 13 prisons are more dangerous.

Killed Jan. 29 Corrections Officer Jayme Biendl was strangled to death inside the chapel of the Monroe Correctional Complex on Jan. 29. Court records show inmate Byron Scherf — who is 52 and serving a life sentence for rape — confessed to detectives in a videotaped interview. Biendl is the first corrections officer to be killed on the job in decades.

Washington’s crime rate lowest in two decades The Associated Press

The crime rate in the Evergreen State is the lowest in two decades. And the state ranks well below the national average in violent crime, mostly because violent offenders are locked away, McBride said. The downside is that Washington suffers above-normal amounts of property crime, because many of those offenders do not receive prison time, McBride said. Washington has a prison population of just under three inmates per 1,000 residents, well below the national average of more than five inmates per 1,000.

Racial makeup The vast majority of the state’s inmates, 10,925, were white in 2010. Blacks made up the second largest number, 3,199. There were 1,402 Hispanic inmates, 735 American Indians and 603 Asians and Pacific islanders. As a percentage of population, whites were 64 percent of the prison population in 2010, but were 74.8 percent of the state population. Blacks were 18 percent of the prison population, despite being just 3.5 percent of the population. Hispanics were 8 percent of the prison population, but 10.2 percent of the state population. Officials at Teamsters Local 117, which represents corrections officers, believes the prison population is more dangerous than it used to be. The closure of McNeil Island will only make that worse, said Tracey Thompson, chief executive officer of the union. “Overcrowding with a lot

American Indians were 1.5 percent of the state population but 4.3 percent of the prison population. Asian/Pacific Islanders were 7.2 percent of the state population but 3.5 percent of the prison population. Nationally, the Bureau of Justice Statistics said 35.5 percent of all state prison inmates were white in 2008. The racial makeup of a state’s prison population depends largely on the racial distribution of the state’s population, said Paige Harrison, a statistician for the bureau.

Older population The inmate population is getting older, which is the result both of the aging baby boomer population and tough-on-crime laws than mandated longer sentences, McBride said. In Washington, the average age of an inmate was 37.6 years for men and 36.6 years for women in 2010. That was up from 34.9 years for men and 34.4 years for women in 2000. The Department of Corrections received 4.4 percent of the state budget in the biennium that ended in 2001, costing $972 million. That rose to 5 percent of the state budget in the current two year cycle, at $1.5 billion, according to the Office of Financial Management. The governor’s proposed budget for the next biennium would increase Corrections to 5.3 percent of the budget.

more violent criminals in the system is going to be a recipe for disaster,” Thompson said. The union also contends that too many prisoners are being reclassified by prison administrators from violent to nonviolent, which allows them to be placed in the general population. Scherf, for instance,

entered the prison system as a maximum security inmate but had been moved to medium security because of good behavior. The union would like to see an overhaul of the classification system, she said. The state is also expected to have 2,000 more inmates by 2016, and needs a new prison, Thompson said.

Change to park bill likely due to criticism By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

OLYMPIA — A bill to charge a fee for parking at state parks and other recreation areas will likely be changed in response to recent criticism, said its sponsor, Rep. Kevin Van De Wege. One of the changes might be to allow a dozen free parking days each year, said the Sequim Democrat. The purpose would be to maintain some access for people who can’t afford the proposed $10 day-use fee or $30 annual pass. Concern that the bill

would make state parks and other recreation areas less accessible to lowincome people is one of the reasons why retired Rep. Lynn Kessler said she spoke against it at a hearing last Tuesday. “There are other ways to do this rather than shut down the parks to all the low-income people,” she said in an interview Friday. Kessler represented the 24th District for 18 years before retiring last year. The district includes Clallam and Jefferson counties and the northern half of Grays Harbor County.

What’s not to love at Serenity

It didn’t work in the past because it cost too much money to administer, Kessler said. Van De Wege said he 115110067

Van De Wege said the bill is needed because about $60 million needs to be raised during the next two years to avoid park closures. “We’re really running out of options,” Van De Wege said. But it would also eliminate the $5 “opt-out” fee on vehicle tabs, a move Kessler got passed in 2009 as a way to avoid park closures during past budget problems. The former house majority leader said she has seen parking fees at state parks fail in the past — twice in the last 10 years — and believes the state should instead raise the vehicletab fee to $10 and seek more private donations.

Eye on Olympia doesn’t foresee the same problem because the main source of revenue is expected to come from the annual pass. He expects the annual pass would not cost much to administer because it would be sold through existing state agencies. Van De Wege said he looked at other options for funding state parks. “I looked at a lot of different things,” he said. “I don’t see how [parks can be saved] without doing this.” Twenty percent of people surveyed by Washington State Parks would purchase the annual pass, according to the bill’s fiscal note. That, the state estimates, would raise $18 million a year, or $36 million in the next biennial budget. Van De Wege said the state estimates that $72 million will be raised

through the fees over the next two years. That would be enough, he said, to maintain funding for parks and for land managed by the state departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife. Both Kessler and Van De Wege — former 24th District seat mates — said their relationship hasn’t been strained over the issue. “I know his [Van De Wege’s] heart is in the right place,” Kessler said. “I absolutely know that.”

Supplemental budget Last week, the Legislature passed a supplemental budget meant to backfill the state’s budget problems for the rest of the current budget, which ends in July. The package cuts $370 million from the $550 million shortfall. The North Olympic Peninsula’s three representatives — Van De Wege, Rep. Steve Tharinger, D-Sequim, and Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam — voted yes. They said the Legislature will have to adopt another supplemental budget to eliminate the rest of the deficit. “There will be another supplemental worked on probably starting [this] week to come up with the remainder,” Hargrove said. Meanwhile, the Basic Health Plan and other social services avoided being cut completely. However, about $25 million in school funding was eliminated. Tharinger said he disagrees with Republicans who say the state shouldn’t have cut so much from edu-

A trip of a lifetime turns to horror Hijacking similar to 2009 case Peninsula Daily News news services

NAIROBI, Kenya — It is a familiar tale of the sea. A retired couple sets out for the trip of a lifetime, sailing around the world in a relatively small yacht, blogging all the way, sharing adventures of meeting people, seeing exotic locales and experiencing the thrill of being totally free. Jean and Scott Adam have been cruising with a yacht full of Bibles aboard the Quest, a sleek, blue Davidson 58 Pilot House Sloop, since 2004. The Adams — who are members of the Marina del Rey Yacht Club in Marina del Rey, Calif. — run a Bible ministry, according to their website. They have been distributing Bibles to schools and churches in remote villages in areas including the Fiji Islands, Alaska, New Zealand, Central America and French Polynesia. One of the last posts on the Adams’ website indi-

Scott and Jean Adam’s sailboat was hijacked Friday by pirates. cates that they were leaving Mumbai, India, for Oman, and then sailing onward to Djibouti on the northeast “horn” of Africa. A retired dentist, Jean Adam wrote that she wanted to blog as much as possible but “since this trip is a reflection of our life and because life on a moving boat is unpredictable, we expect this trip to hold some unexpected surprises!” On Friday, their adventure took a hazardous turn when pirates hijacked their sailboat — with a Seattle couple on board — attacking

several hundred miles off the coast of Oman. It is a strikingly similar case to that of Paul and Rachel Chandler, sailors from a London suburb seeking adventure in similar waters in 2009. Their boat was hijacked by Somali gunmen who held them for more than a year. The U.S. Navy has pleaded with ship owners to stick to designated shipping lanes when passing through the Arabian Sea, where pirates continue to strike with impunity, despite the presence of dozens

of warships. The Navy sometimes provides escorts for convoys, and the ships travel in numbers, for safety. “But we can’t track everything, we can’t track everybody; it’s too large of an area,” said Bob Prucha, a spokesman for the military’s Central Command, on Saturday. He added that it was “common knowledge” how dangerous those waters were. Though the Russian, American, Chinese and other navies are prowling up

and down Somalia’s coast, the pirates have continued to seize dozens of vessels in the past year. Ransoms have shot up from a few hundred thousand dollars to now typically $4 million or $5 million. Somalia has languished without a functioning central government for more than 20 years, and once pirates take hostages back to their dens, there are very few options for a rescue. The pirates, from Puntland in northern Somalia, are not hard-line Islamists. The fact the Adams carry Bibles is not likely to be a problem. Pirates in Puntland are known to spend their ransom spoils on alcohol, drugs and prostitutes. In 2009, the last time Americans were hijacked by Somali pirates, the Navy sent several warships, and a SEALs team ended up shooting three pirates dead, capturing a fourth and freeing an American merchant marine captain. All this happened at sea. The captured pirate, Abdiwali Abdiqadir Muse, was taken to New York and sentenced to 33 years in U.S. prison Wednesday. Piracy analysts in East Africa said people in Soma-

lia’s pirate communities had already begun talking about trying to work out a prisoner swap with the four freshly snatched Americans in exchange for Muse, something U.S. officials are not likely to approve. Somalia’s pirates are getting increasingly bold — and vicious. Several hostages have recently been badly beaten, and some have even been forced at gunpoint to accompany pirates on raids. According to Ecoterra International, an organization that monitors piracy attacks, more than 50 captured ships are in the hands of Somali pirates, with at least 800 captives. Though pirates prefer large oil tankers, which typically bring fatter ransoms, they usually will not spare a sailboat. The Chandlers were released in November, after their friends and others paid around $1 million in ransom. A South African couple seized in their sailboat last year is still in captivity. A French family in a yacht was also hijacked a few years ago. French commandos accidentally killed the skipper when they staged a rescue attempt.

the Quest. “It’s not unusual at all for sailors with really good skills to catch a ride from X to Y on a boat who needs crews,” said Ann. Pirates have increased attacks off the coast of East Africa in recent years despite an international flotilla of warships dedicated to protecting vessels and stopping the pirate assaults. Multimillion-dollar ransoms are fueling the trade, and the prices for releasing a ship and hostages have risen sharply from a few hundred thousand dollars to now typically $4 million or $5 million.

Phyllis Mackay and Bob Riggle, both of Seattle, are seen on a yacht in Bodega Bay, Calif., in 2005. two Americans onboard as Phyllis Mackay and Bob Riggle. KING-TV in Seattle spelled the name as Phyllis Mccay and said she and Riggle are from Seattle. In an online statement,

Blue Water said it was “very distressed to learn of the hijacking of SV Quest on 18th February. “Scott and Jean Adam joined the Oz-Med section of the Blue Water Rally just

before Christmas and had been sailing with the rally from Phuket as far as Mumbai.


The last attack against a U.S. crew — in 2009 — ended with Navy sharpshooters killing two pirates and rescuing the ship’s captain. If the Quest reaches Somalia’s shores, the four American hostages would likely be taken inland, where a fast resolution is much less likely. A British sailing couple who were released in November spent 388 days in pirate captivity. The organizers of an international yacht race called the Blue Water Rally said the Quest had been taking part in the race but left it Tuesday to chart an independent course from India to Oman. (See accompanying story.) The Quest is owned by Scott and Jean Adam, a couple from the Los Angeles area. The Blue Water organizers also identified the other

“Quest had taken on board two well known rally participants: Phyllis Mackay [sic] and Bob Riggle. However, she chose to take an independent route from Mumbai to Salalah, leaving the Rally on 15 February. “We feel desperately sorry for our four friends onboard, and our thoughts are with them and their friends and family. “All the yachts still on the rally are fine and well.” A friend, who wished to be identified only as Ann, told KING she was a friend of Riggle and that he was part of the crew onboard

Here are six things the IRS wants you to know about self-employment: 1. Self-employment can include work in addition to your regular full-time business activities, such as part-time work you do at home or in addition to your regular job. 2. If you are self-employed you generally have to pay Self-employment Tax. Self-employment tax is a social security and Medicare tax primarily for individuals who work for themselves. It is similar to the social security and Medicare taxes withheld from the pay of most wage earners. You figure SE tax yourself using a Form 1040 Schedule SE. Also, you can deduct half of your self-employment tax in figuring your adjusted gross income. 3. If you are self-employed you generally have to make estimated tax payments. Tis applies even if you also have a full-time or part-time job and your employer withholds taxes from your wages. Estimated tax is the method used tax on income that is not subject to withholding. If you don't make quarterly payments you may be penalized for underpayment at the end of the tax year. 4. You can deduct the costs of running your business. These costs are known as business expenses. These are costs you do not have to capitalize or include in the cost of goods sold but can deduct in the current year. 5. To be deductible, a business expense must be both ordinary and necessary. An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your field of business. A necessary expense is on that is helpful and appropriate for your business. An expense does not have to be indispensable to be considered necessary. 6. For more information see IRS Publication 334.

Caterer Jeff Cameron, who owns Cameron’s Cafe and Custom Catering, said he was excited to return to the show after a one-year absence.

this year’s state budget process hard and painful. “The decisions that we make today affect real families in Washington — real people are losing their health coverage, their safety net,� he said, after helping to craft a supplemental budget for the current fiscal year.

Several ‘unknowns’ A few significant “unknowns� lurk in the education budget, now and into the future. When the state Supreme Court ordered the Legislature to define basic education and fully pay for it, the court also directed lawmakers to continually update its definition. For the past few years, committees of lawmakers and other education players have been meeting to discuss how the definition should be updated. Those plans are still a work in progress, but they create an opening for more change. Some debates that most feel have already been resolved could be reopened this year, including such “done deals� as all-day kindergarten. Another unknown: the state population. The number of school children in the state has been in a lull in recent years, but is expected to grow in the next decade. The state will need to find a way to pay for the same services for more kids.

Why we need women in war zones By Kim Barker THOUSANDS OF MEN blocked the road, surrounding the SUV of the chief justice of Pakistan, a national hero for standing up to military rule. As a correspondent for The Chicago Tribune, I knew I couldn’t just watch from behind a car window. I had to get out there. So, wearing a black headscarf and a loose, long-sleeved red tunic over jeans, I waded through the crowd and started taking notes: on the men throwing rose petals, on the men shouting that they would die for the chief justice, on the men sacrificing a goat. And then, almost predictably, someone grabbed my buttocks. I spun around and shouted, but then it happened again, and again, until finally I caught one offender’s hand and punched him in the face. The men kept grabbing. I kept punching. At a certain point — maybe because I was creating a scene — I was invited into the chief justice’s vehicle. At the time, in June 2007, I saw this as just one of the realities of covering the news in Pakistan. I didn’t complain to my bosses. To do so would only make me seem weak. Instead, I made a joke out of it and turned the experience into a positive one: See, being a woman helped me

gain access to the chief justice. And really, I was lucky. A few gropes, a misplaced hand, an unwanted advance — those are easily dismissed. I knew other female correspondents who weren’t so lucky, those who were molested in their hotel rooms, or partly stripped by mobs. But I can’t ever remember sitting down with my female peers and talking about what had happened, except to make dark jokes, because such stories would make us seem different from the male correspondents, more vulnerable. I would never tell my bosses for fear that they might keep me at home the next time something Laura Logan, working in Cairo major happened.

on the day of the attack. tions that female correspondents should not be sent into dangerous situations. It’s possible that bosses will make unconscious decisions to send men instead, just in case. Sure, men can be victims, too — on Wednesday a mob beat up a male ABC reporter in Bahrain, and a few male journalists have told of being sodomized by captors — but the publicity around Ms. Logan’s attack could make editors think, “Why take the risk?” That would be the wrong lesson. Women can cover the fighting just as well as men, depending on their courage. More important, they also do a pretty good job of covering what it’s like to live in a war, not just die in one.

Our readers’ letters, faxes

Without female correspondents in war zones, the experiences of women there may be only a rumor. Look at the articles about women who set themselves on fire in Afghanistan to protest their arranged marriages, or about girls being maimed by fundamentalists, about child marriage in India, about rape in Congo and Haiti. Female journalists often tell those stories in the most compelling ways, because abused women are sometimes more comfortable talking to them. And those stories are at least as important as accounts of battles. There is an added benefit. Ms. Logan is a minor celebrity, one of the highest-profile women to acknowledge being sexually assaulted. Although she has reported from the front lines, the lesson she is now giving young women is probably her most profound: It’s not your fault. And there’s no shame in telling it like it is. Kim Barker, a reporter for the investigative journalism website ProPublica, is the author of the forthcoming memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Thomas L. Friedman of The New York Times, our regular Monday columnist, is off today.

Cut spending Has anyone considered cutbacks on our wonderful government and the ones who were supposed to be in charge of this state or representing the people? Who is responsible for spending too much? It does not sound like good management to me. Who got us into this mess? Put government itself on the chopping block — our “officials,” “representatives,” the government of this state, etc., etc. Why have they not cut back on their own salaries,

benefits, retirement, etc., etc.? That should be done immediately. I think they should stop trying to tax more from

people who are getting less. There should also be a Government retirement, complete restructuring of future retirement benefits benefits and salaries and salaries. should be immediately Who’s really going to reduced.

consider that — someone who truly represents the people? Has anyone considered how much money that would save? While the people who live in Washington state have to cut back, pay more and receive less, retired folk have to get part-time jobs. While businesspeople have to work even harder and longer just to keep their doors open, the ones mostly responsible for the problems we face today are unaffected. When will enough be enough? When it’s all gone? Look around, pay attention, open your eyes and think for yourself.

Don’t buy simplistic budget talk IN POLITICS, SIMPLE phrases can hide complex agendas. The budget debate offers Froma the perfect Harrop stage for mouthing “home truths” that are not quite true. Let’s air a few examples. ■ Big government, not the Bush tax cuts, created the deficits. Yes, higher spending — including the wars plus a deep recession — helped fuel the deficits, but so did the schemes to lighten rich people’s tax burdens. The Bush tax cuts were scheduled to expire Jan. 1. Had Congress let that happen, projected deficits for the next 10 years would be $3.3 trillion lower than they are, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

That’s a good chunk of change. President Obama’s new budget plan, despite deep slashes in spending, is projected to add $7.2 trillion to the national debt through 2021. Congress extended the Bush tax cuts for two years. But after that time is up, lawmakers can fix much of the deficit problem by doing nothing — that is, sitting back and letting the Bush tax cuts go poof. But aren’t these tax cuts necessary for long-term economic growth? Hardly. Economists have found “virtually no evidence in support of the Bush tax cuts as an economic elixir,” writes former Reagan Treasury official Bruce Bartlett. And, he concludes, “no one should delude themselves that continuing tax cuts that did nothing for growth over the last 10 years will do anything to stimulate growth in the future.” ■ Social Security is now driving up deficits.

Portman said that on “PBS NewsHour,” noting: “This year, Social Security will pay out more than it brings in.” True . . . but. Like others intent on privatizing the program, Portman ignores the Social Security Trust Fund. For more than a quarter-century, American workers have been paying extra taxes into the fund to cover this very situation. The fund’s assets are invested in U.S. Treasury securities. Portman’s claim is like parents saying that when they tap their college savings account to pay tuition that they couldn’t afford with that year’s earnings, they are spending money they don’t have. Portman then argues that, anyhow, the Social Security Trust Fund is empty. “For years,” he says, “the Social Security Trust Fund has been used for everyday government spending.” Well, that is true of all the

money that the U.S. government borrows — which it does by selling Treasury securities to investors across the globe. If the U.S. government defaulted on these bonds, the world economy would rapidly collapse into a pile of smoking ashes. Is Portman suggesting that the U.S. Treasury must honor its debt obligations to the Chinese government but can stiff the American workers who loaned it money through the Social Security Trust Fund? I think he is. I know the accounting is screwy, but for purposes of determining the financial health of Social Security, our politicians should just tack the money the Treasury owes the trust fund onto the money it owes everyone else. ■ You can’t tax your way to prosperity. How many times have you heard that? And how appealing to those

who don’t like paying taxes, which is about everybody. Listen to Rep. Paul Ryan’s reaction to Obama’s budget plan: “You really can’t borrow and spend and tax your way to prosperity, but unfortunately, that is exactly what this budget does.” It must have slipped the Wisconsin Republican’s mind that in 2003, he voted for the famously reckless $1 trillion Medicare drug benefit, every penny of the cost borrowed. As chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan surely knows that one way to avoid borrowing is to pay for things the old-fashioned way, with taxes. Now that’s simplicity we can believe in.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell arrives for the first negotiating session involving a federal mediator Friday in Washington.

NFL labor talks go 3 days in a row By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Federally mediated negotiations toward a new NFL labor deal lasted about eight hours Sunday, the third consecutive day the league and its players’ union met to try to find common ground before the current contract expires. NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith didn’t stop for questions as he left the Washington office of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, a U.S. government agency, shortly after 6 p.m. He and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell arrived within minutes of each other, shortly before 10 a.m. Sunday was the third consecutive — and, so far, longest — day of faceto-face communication after months of slow and sometimes contentious bargaining. The sides have met for a total of more than 20 hours since Friday in front of George Cohen, director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Because both sides agreed to Cohen’s request that they not comment publicly on these negotiations, it’s not clear what, if any, progress is being made. “You know we’re not going to give you any information,” NFL outside lawyer Bob Batterman said as he left with three league executives. “I can’t say anything, other than the fact that we are meeting.” Batterman, who represented the NHL when it lost its entire 2004-05 season to a lockout, then referred to Cohen as a “first-class mediator.”

Fister, Vargas may start Mariners’ journeymen pitchers will get a shot By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

PEORIA, Ariz. — For a couple of guys who’ve never enjoyed much job security, the start of the 2011 season is a bit different for both Jason Vargas and Doug Fister. Instead of a year ago when they were a couple of back-end pitchers expected to be parttime fill-ins of the Seattle Mariners pitching staff, Vargas and Fister enter this season almost assured of being in the Mariners rotation. “You still have to go out and throw well, but it’s nice when you’ve got people that are counting on you to do what you’ve done in the past,” Vargas said. Neither Vargas nor Fister were statistically superior in 2010, but then again, neither

were the Mariners sans AL Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez. Yet each proved a viable and valuable member of Fister Seattle’s rotation, appearing to cement their spots moving forward. Vargas set career highs in nearly every statistical category. The most important were his number of starts and innings pitched, finally proving he was fully recovered from surgery to remove a bone spur his pitching elbow in October 2007, followed by surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip in 2008

that all but ended his two-year career with the New York Mets. Va r g a s finished last season making 31 starts and t h r o w i n g Vargas 192 2/3 innings, 101 more than he’d ever thrown in a major league season. The fact Vargas finished with only nine wins was more a result of Seattle’s weak offense and a lack of run support. In six starts last year, Vargas pitched at least seven innings and gave up three or fewer earned runs and came away with either a loss or a no decision. He had a 3.78 ERA to go along with his 9-12 record, his success thanks largely to a deceptive change up that counters the number of fastballs he throws.

One of his tasks during spring training is working on a breaking ball that Vargas eventually hopes will be another reliable option. “The focus is to keep my strengths my strengths but also build on that,” Vargas said. “If that means developing a breaking ball that I can count on for a strike when I’m behind in the count or I can throw for a first pitch strike, then yeah, I think that’s something that needs to be worked on.” Fister’s first full major league season was defined by his stunningly hot start and then the struggles that followed after he went to the disabled list in June with shoulder soreness. Before the problems started in his right shoulder, Fister had an ERA under two. He flirted with a no-hitter in his second start of the season and came away with the win in three of his first seven starts. Turn



Kobe leads West to All-Star win Laker earns his 4th MVP award By Brian Mahoney

Deal expires soon The NFL’s labor deal expires at the end of the day March 3. The union has said it believes team owners want to lock out the players as soon as the next day, which could threaten the 2011 season. On his way into the talks Sunday morning, Jeff Pash, the NFL’s general counsel and lead labor negotiator said: “We are working hard, and we’re following the director’s playbook, and we’ll see what we come up with.” Lawyers Jeffrey Kessler and Richard Berthelsen, current players Tony Richardson of the New York Jets and Charlie Batch of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and former players Pete Kendall and Sean Morey were among those representing the union Sunday. They began arriving before 9 a.m. “Conversation is good,” Richardson said when he left. The sides met for about six hours on both Friday and Saturday. Cohen announced Thursday the groups agreed to the mediation, which is not binding but is meant as a way to spur progress. The plan calls for several days of negotiations with Cohen present. The mediation could be seen as a positive sign after several months of infrequent negotiations — and frequent rhetoric, including charges from each side that the other was hoping for a work stoppage.

LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant always shines brightest among the stars, especially in his hometown. Bryant brought Showtime back to the All-Star game, scoring 37 points and tying a record with his fourth MVP award, leading the Western Conference to a 148-143 victory over the East on Sunday night. Returning to the game he dominates after a one-year absence, Bryant added 14 rebounds in a spectacular performance in front of the usual celebrity-filled crowd that turns out to see his Lakers at Staples Center. “It feels great, being at home here and playing in front of the home crowd,” Bryant said after receiving the MVP trophy. “This will be my last All-Star game in front of these home fans, so it feels good to do it.” Kevin Durant chipped in 34 points, scoring five straight after the East cut a 17-point deficit after three quarters to two points with 2:34 to play. The NBA scoring leader added the clinching free throws after the East got back within three in the final seconds. LeBron James powered the East rally, finishing with 29 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to join Michael Jordan as the only players with a tripledouble in the All-Star game. Amare Stoudemire also

Plenty of Hollywood giants were sitting courtside, but Bryant’s popularity here can rival most of them. This week, he became the first athlete to have his handprints and footprints put in con-

crete outside Hollywood’s famed Grauman’s Chinese Theater. He told fans to “enjoy the show” before the tip, and as always he delivered a good one. Always more about focus than fun, Bryant had 21 points by the time Rihanna came out for her halftime performance, putting him halfway to Wilt Chamberlain’s record from 1962,

the year of his 100-point game. And when the East made it close in the third quarter, Bryant dunked over a chasing James who was going for the block, then nailed a 3-pointer to make it 90-79. Carmelo Anthony scored eight points in his possible goodbye to the West team. Turn

Duerson’s kin donating brain for research By Dave Skretta

Presidents Day

weekend action

Katyn Flores of the PA Ice goes in for a layup over Cheyenne Wheeler (5) and Brennan Gray (2) of the PA Icebreakers on Sunday at Stevens Middle School in Port Angeles as part of the 17th annual Presidents Day Tournament, sponsored by the Port Angeles Parks and Recreation Department. The PA Ice, a sixth grade team, beat the PA Icebreakers, a fifth grade team, 45-10 in round-robin. In all, there were 49 teams, 40 of which were from out of town, in seven divisions playing 98 games on six courts in the two-day tourney. Dan Estes of Parks and Recreation said that more than 800 players, coaches and parents came to Port Angeles from out of the area for the basketball tournament for girls and boys in grades five to eight.

NEW YORK — Mike Ditka remembers seeing Dave Duerson at a reunion of the ‘85 Bears just a few months ago, and everything seemed fine. Yes, Duerson’s business had failed, he’d divorced and lost his home to foreclosure, but he seemed to have put it behind him. He was getting married again in April and spoke with optimism of the future, showing the kind of resolve that helped him reach four Pro Bowls, two Super Bowls and bounce back from countless bone-jarring hits over an 11-year career. So it was understandable that Ditka felt numb this week when he learned that Duerson, one of the anchors of that fearsome Bears defense, had committed suicide at the age of 50. “We had the anniversary party, and he seemed fine, you know?” the former coach said in a telephone interview Sunday. “I knew he had some problems, but I honestly didn’t know.” Duerson was found Thursday in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., and the MiamiDade medical examiner ruled his death a suicide on Sunday, Miami-Dade police spokesman Roy Rutland said. There was no word on whether a note was left, though the New York Times reported that Duerson had sent text messages to his family asking that his brain be examined for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative disease tied to depression, dementia and suicide. Messages left by The Associated Press with his ex-wife, Alicia, and other family members were not

returned. Chris Nowinski at the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University School of Medicine told The Associated Press he was contacted by a representative of the NFL Players Association on behalf of the family Friday, then secured the donation later in the day. Nowinski said the brain eventually will undergo a battery of studies looking for any disease or abnormality, but focused on CTE, which has been found in a number of former athletes. “The goal of the research is both to better understand the disease so we can treat it, develop a diagnostic test for people while they’re alive, and also use the information to develop better prevention for current athletes,” Nowinski said Sunday. CSTE is a collaboration between Boston University Medical School and the Sports Legacy Institute that is attempting to address what it calls the “concussion crisis” in sports. The group has been at the forefront of research into head trauma in sports, and has received a $1 million gift from the NFL, which it has pushed for better treatment of concussions. Nowinski said more than 300 athletes, including 100 current and former NFL players, are on the CSTE’s brain donation registry. There are 65 cases currently being studied. “You can never link a single act to a disease, however, a large percentage of CTE cases have committed suicide,” Nowinski said. “It’s a potential link, something we have to explore.”

Rookie stuns Daytona 500 track Bayne beats veterans for crucial win The Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. insisted he didn’t believe in fairy tales and happy endings. Trevor Bayne was too young to know any better. Bayne, in just his second Sprint Cup Series start, pulled off a stunning victory in his first Daytona 500 on Sunday, becoming the youngest winner in the 53 years of the Great American Race. Bayne, who turned 20 the day before the biggest race of his career, took the Wood Brothers back to Victory Lane for the first time since 2001. As he crossed the line, Bayne screamed into his radio: “Are you kidding me?!” The rookie had been great throughout Speedweeks in the No. 21 Ford, even proving his mettle by pushing four-time champion Jeff Gordon for most of a qualifying race. With the win, Bayne breaks Gordon’s mark as the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history. Gordon was 26 when he won the 500 in 1997. “I think it’s very cool. Trevor’s a good kid, and I love the Wood Brothers,” Gordon said. “I’m really happy for him. And I think it’s great for the sport. To have a young talent like that — he’s got that spark, you know?” The victory for NASCAR pioneers Leonard and Glen Wood ended a 10-year-losing streak, and came the week of the 10th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt’s fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. That anniversary had everyone almost certain Sunday’s win would go to Earnhardt Jr., the prodigal son, who shied away from the suggestion that the stars were lined up for a spectacular tribute to his father. Bayne, whose official web site says “Coming Soon,” never even allowed himself to daydream about such a magical finish. “Our first 500, are you kidding me?” said Bayne, who needed directions to Victory Lane. “Wow. This is unbelievable.” The race had a record 74 lead changes among 22 drivers, and a record 16 cautions that wiped out many of the leaders, including Earnhardt Jr. on the first attempt at NASCAR’s version of overtime. It put Bayne out front with a slew of unusual suspects. David Ragan, winless in 147 career starts, was actually leading the field on NASCAR’s first attempt at a green-white-checkered

Trevor Bayne (21) takes the checkered flag to win the Daytona 500 NASCAR auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., on Sunday. finish. But he was flagged for changing lanes before the starting line, then an accident that collected Earnhardt in the middle of the pack brought out the caution, and Bayne inherited the lead. But he had two-time series champion Tony Stewart, now winless in 13 career Daytona 500s, lurking behind with veterans Bobby Labonte, Mark Martin and Kurt Busch, who had collected two previous wins over Speedweeks. All were chomping at the bit for their first Daytona 500 title, but Bayne never blinked, holding his gas pedal down wide open as he staved off every challenge over the two-lap final shootout. “I’ve never been to a racetrack with this many people!” he yelled in Victory Lane. Edwards wound up second in a Ford and was followed by David Gilliland, Labonte and Busch. Juan Pablo Montoya was sixth, Regan Smith seventh, and Kyle Busch, Paul Menard and Martin rounded out the top 10. Earnhardt Jr. wound up 24th. The race was a battle of attrition, thanks to the dicey two-car tandem racing at nearly 200 mph that was the norm throughout Speedweeks. Hendrick Motorsports had a rough start to the season as three of the team’s four cars, including five-time defending Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, were involved in an early 14-car wreck.

The New York Knicks have made their pitch for Carmelo Anthony. And that’s as far as they’re going to go, according to a report in Newsday. “We’re not going any further now,” a source told Newsday. “It’s out of our hands.” The Nuggets now have to decide if they take the Knicks’ current deal, which has them prepared to surrender the likes of Danilo Gallinari and Raymond Felton along with Wilson Chandler in a trade package for Anthony, according to sources, or if they continue to try to make a deal with the New Jersey Nets. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and minority owner Jay-Z spent the 40-minute session informing Anthony of the club’s shortterm and long-term vision, centered upon the Nets’ scheduled move to Brooklyn for the start of the 2012-13 season and their confidence in building a championshipcaliber team around him,

PA native to discuss South American trip Free talk slated for Thursday Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles native Killian Doherty will talk about his experiences traveling in the Argentine Mesopotamia when he speaks at Peninsula College’s Studium Generale program at 12:35 p.m. Thursday. The free talk will be held in the Little Theater at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Doherty traveled to South America to complete a master’s degree program in 2005 and ended up staying for five years, fascinated by the culture and the people. While there, he spent several months exploring its cities and countries.

One of the places he was particularly attracted to while living in Buenos Aires was the region of Argentina known as the Mesopotamia, which derives its name from its location between two rivers, the Parana and the Uruguay.

Visual, verbal tour Doherty will take his audience on a visual and verbal tour of the Argentine Mesopotamia, introducing them to such natural wonders as the waterfalls in the Iguazu National Park, the Esteros de Ibera wetlands and the El Palmar National Park. He will also take audience members along on a train ride on the infamously

unreliable train, El Gran Capitan, connecting Buenos Aires and Posadas along the border with Paraguay. “The ecosystem of the Argentine Mesopotamia is unique because of its abundance of freshwater,” Doherty said. “The Esteros de Ibera wetlands are one of the most extensive in the world and home to capybara, two crocodile species and many other rare animal species. “The Iguazu National Park is also well-known for biological diversity, especially birds and butterflies.” Born and raised in Port Angeles, Doherty received a bachelor’s degree in linguistics from Western Washington University and a master’s in development management and policy from Georgetown University.

Stepmother won’t recognize illness


DEAR ABBY: My stepmother — the only mother I have ever known — has been clinically diagnosed with a paranoid personality. This means she is suspicious, a martyr in any situation and flatly denies anything she thinks would cast her in a negative light. She can be very convincing. Once or twice she has even convinced me that my memories were wrong, although the facts were later corroborated by other family members. People who can’t see through her “act” consider my mother to be a saint. Those who see her clearly know that she’s spiteful and vindictive. She has, for years, refused to take her prescribed medicine and won’t explore any other treatment. She insists the problem is with everyone else, especially me. You have told others about the need to cut toxic friends and relatives out of their lives, but how does one do it? I know there will never be closure or a good relationship, but I can’t help wanting one. I’m in my mid-30s and feel if my mother doesn’t love me, how can anyone else? Needs a Resolution in Georgia

For Better or For Worse


Dear Needs A Resolution: You have more than one problem. Removing toxic individuals from one’s life is as easy as refusing to go along with their behavior. Once you draw the line, those people will “help” you by cutting you out of theirs. Your mother’s mental illness may prevent her from loving anyone — not you specifically. I hope you realize how important it is to discuss your feelings with a licensed psychotherapist. You have an entire upbringing by a woman with a damaged personality to overcome. The fact that she couldn’t love you does not mean you are unlovable. And the sooner you are able to accept that, the more lovable you will be because you will like yourself more.

Frank & Ernest


Dear Abby: Ten years ago, I was suddenly widowed after many years of marriage. Because I was totally “available,” I became very involved with my children and grandchildren. I did not date. About a year ago, that changed. I met “Gerald,” a man who makes me


DEAR ABBY very happy. We enjoy dinVan Buren ners together, dancing and travel. We spend three nights a week together — usually at my place. My brothers and friends are happy for me, but my daughters have not accepted him. They are civil in his presence, but in private they put him down. Their objections are: Gerald is more reserved than their father was, he takes up a lot of my time, that I’m “acting like a schoolgirl,” and the sleep overs set a bad example for the grandkids. (They are not present when this occurs.) I have told my daughters repeatedly how happy I am and how hurtful I find their comments. I refuse to listen to their negative comments, but they always come up. I don’t want to alienate them and possibly have my time with my grandkids limited, but Gerald is going to be in my life for a while. Any advice? Gerald’s “Girl”


Dear Gerald’s “Girl”: As an adult, you have the right to live your life as you choose. Because you have already told your daughters their comments are hurtful, it’s time to stand your ground more strongly. Your grandchildren will not be shocked that Gerald is spending nights with you if their parents do not discuss it with them or in front of them. They’ll be off doing their own thing as teenagers and, much as they love you, you will not be the focus of their attention. If your daughters threaten to punish you by limiting your time with the grandkids, let it be their problem. But do not give in to the treatment they are giving you because it is unfair and uncalled for.

The Last Word in Astrology By Eugenia Last

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Hang on to what you’ve got. Don’t take risks and refuse to let your emotions lead the way. Keep things in perspective; overreacting will only lead to impulsive actions and responses. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t give the wrong impression or send the wrong signal when dealing with colleagues, peers or acquaintances. Precision and sticking to what you know and do best will be what gets you through the day. 3 stars

Rose is Rose

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your opinion will be well received and you will be honored for your contributions. Someone close to you will feel threatened by your success. Make an effort to put this person’s mind at ease. 5 stars


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Focus on learning and trying new things. If you isolate yourself, it will be difficult to fit into the situation that develops among your peers. Don’t fear change. Embrace new beginnings. 2 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may want to change

your location or size down or up with regard to your living quarters. Making your home a place conducive to your lifestyle and professional needs is a must if you plan to get ahead. Money, contracts and settlements all look favorable. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be careful how you relay information or you may be blamed for meddling. If you don’t have the facts, don’t contribute. Emotional difficulties due to a burden you face must be handled delicately. 4 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t get stuck in the past. Look to a brighter future. Connect with new people through social networking, events, activities or self-improvement classes. Love is in the stars but don’t make an unrealistic promise. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The past can be incredibly helpful if you remember valuable lessons. Overreacting will not help any situation you face and neither will a sudden reversal on your part. Consistency will be the only way. 2 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Use your insight to avoid stressful personal situations that play on your emotions and threaten your relationships. Rely on past experience and your instincts to guide you down the right path. A new friend will help open doors. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A money deal is apparent. Whether it’s a settlement, winning, rebate, sale of a valuable possession or even a new contract or raise, you can get ahead financially if you take advantage of whatever comes your way. Don’t spend before you pay off your debts. 5 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Work quietly on your own projects and you will accomplish the most. A change of plans will be in your favor. Decipher whether or not you have the backing of family and loved ones before you decide to include any of them in your plans. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use a little force if it will help you get your way but don’t let it cause a dispute with someone you love. You’ll be walking a fine line when it comes to giving to outsiders before giving to your family. A partnership can become one-sided if you don’t delegate. 3 stars
