State patient poll cites annoyance Hospital patients on the North Olympic Peninsula are more upset about not being able to sleep at night than any other aspect of their stays, according to a Washington State Hospital Association survey. Released last week, the results for Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles and Jefferson Healthcare hospital in Port Townsend for overnight hospital stays in 2009 were consistent with the statewide average that shows that a little more than half — 51 percent — of all hospital patients in Washington state are satisfied hospitals are “quiet at night.” OMC’s score on that aspect was 47 percent, while Jefferson Healthcare’s was 51 percent. It was easily the lowest score among several categories covering how satisfied patients were with their overnight hospital experiences statewide and on the North Olympic Peninsula. There were no results for Forks Community Hospital, which is still compiling data for patient satisfaction, Chief Financial Officer John Sherrett said last week. Patient satisfaction was one part of a two-part survey conducted by the Washington State Hospital Association. Surveys were voluntary. The state association provided percentages but no numbers of patients who completed the survey. The second part deals with infections acquired in hospitals between July 2009 and June of this year.

A Washington State Hospital Association survey showed that 71 percent of Jefferson Healthcare patients surveyed who stayed overnight in 2009 were satisfied with their experience.
Jefferson Healthcare vows to keep its infections nil By Paul Gottlieb
Peninsula Daily News
Jefferson Healthcare’s goal is to continue having no hospital-related infections at the facility, said Terri Camp, chief nursing director and chief quality officer of the 42-bed hospital. Applying “best practices” to medical procedures is the byword for small hospitals such as Jefferson Healthcare, she said. “I have to be able to say that for every patient, for every nursing shift, no matter how busy you are or how Hospitals/A6 many distractions or other
things are happening, we do all evidence-based practices so infections are prevented.” At Jefferson Healthcare — where on average 12 patients stay overnight — 71 percent of patients were satisfied with their experience compared with a 66 percent of patients statewide at all hospitals surveyed. For other categories, the satisfaction rate was 89 percent for providing discharge instructions, 80 percent for nurse communication, 80 percent for doctor communication, 77 percent for room cleanliness, 69 percent for pain con-
trol, 68 percent for staff responsiveness, 57 percent for staff explanations about medicine — and 51 percent for “quiet at night.” The quiet-at-night category is not a top priority, Camp said. “We’re aware of it, but we’re not doing any particular initiatives on that right now,” she said. “We’ve been prioritizing other initiatives.” They include improving response times for C-sections, called the C-section timing rate.

Regional ‘food security’ urged Peninsula farming touted at ‘summit’ in Port Townsend By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

Sarita Shaffer discusses small farming at the Food and Finance Summit as Crystie Kisler, right, and others listen.
PORT TOWNSEND — Increasing the region’s reliance on local food is an attainable goal that will increase the overall health of the community, said organizers of a food conference. “We produce about 4 percent of our food locally in Jefferson County,” said Katherine Baril, Washington State University Extension executive director, at a Food and Finance Summit at Fort Worden State Park on Friday. “If we moved that up to 20 percent, that is $45 million a year that will go into our economy in direct contributions and grants we don’t have to write and new investments we don’t have to make.”

PORT TOWNSEND — Santa arrived via horse-drawn carriage in Port Townsend on Saturday to the cheers of about 200 people gathered around Haller Fountain at the end of Taylor Street for the annual lighting of the community Christmas tree. Friendship’s the thing about Port Townsend, Santa — who remained unidentified — said during the tree-lighting ceremony in a poem written especially for the occasion. “It’s not just the season,” the poem said. It’s “why we all love here, for very good reason.” One busy little girl couldn’t stay to say hello to Santa or tell him what she wanted for Christmas. “I already opened all my presents,” Jasal Reynolds, 3, declared earlier while resting on a bench in front of Santa’s destination. Dad Jason nodded, not a bit sheepishly. “Every day she says, ‘Please,’ and she says it so sweetly,” he explained. Jasal said her best present is her brandnew bike. So far. Who knows what Santa has in mind?

Baril said that 20 percent “food security” is a reasonable goal within the “Puget Sound foodshed” of Clallam, Jefferson, Skagit, King, Kitsap and Mason counties. She also said that such a goal is attainable specifically in Jefferson County. “We should encourage county . . . plans to set a goal of 20 percent local food security by 2020 and then develop specific action plans of how to achieve that level,” she said. Her suggestions included allowing farm stands, prioritizing land that can grow local foods, encouraging more local purchases and developing seeds and plant varieties that can grow year-round in the county’s climate. Baril said that 167 people attended the conference, mostly food producers, and more than one-third were from Jefferson County. Turn

Dave Brubeck beats illness for his 90th DAVE BRUBECK GINGERLY made his way to the bandstand through a packed Blue Note jazz club in New York, and a smile lit up the jazz legend’s face after he began playing a Duke Ellington medley he dedicated to “my favorite jazz composer, pianist, musician and friend.” The pianist, who celebrates his 90th birthday Monday, mixed standards and originals drawn from his nearly 70-year career in a 90-minute set that left time for only a shortened “Take Five,” the late alto saxophonist Paul Desmond’s odd-metered tune that surprisingly put the Brubeck Quartet at the top of the pop charts nearly 50 years ago. Brubeck could easily have excused himself from the late November sold-out Blue Note gig: It came a month after he was discharged from a Connecticut hospital after a 16-day stay following heart surgery to install a pacemaker. But he felt a strong motivation to perform with his quartet. “It’s the love of the music and the love of being with the group because we have such a great time,” said Brubeck, speaking by tele-

His doctors were concerned that Brubeck might not be able to perform again when he checked into the hospital on Columbus Day after complaining of dizziness and fatigue. Brubeck spent a week in the intensive care unit before being transferred to the rehabilitation unit. His quartet ended a three-month hiatus at a Nov. 19 concert in Worcester, Mass. Brubeck was celebrating his 90th birthday with an intimate party for family and friends Saturday night
at his son, Chris’ home, in Wilton. Three of his sons — Chris (bass and trombone), Darius (piano) and Dan (drums) — just completed a “Brubecks Play Brubeck” British concert tour. On Monday, four generations of Brubecks, including several great-grandchildren, will gather in the family home in the Connecticut woods to watch Turner Classic Movies broadcast “Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way,” a new documentary directed by Bruce Ricker and narrated by Alec Baldwin.

RON SANTO, 70, a star third baseman of the Chicago Cubs and their longtime broadcaster, who became a revered figure for his exploits on the field and his battle against juvenile diabetes, died Thursday in a hospital in Arizona, where he lived during the off-season. The cause was complications of bladder cancer, said WGN Radio, where Mr. Santo, a Seattle Mr. Santo native, was a in 1969 Cubs color commentator for the last 21 years. Playing for the Cubs from 1960 to 1973, then for a final season with the Chicago White Sox, Mr. Santo hit 342 career home runs. He won five Gold Glove awards for fielding every season from 1964 to 1968 and was named an All-Star nine times. Mr. Santo was an important figure on the 1969 Cubs team that held a wide lead over the Mets in the National League East race before collapsing in yet another notorious chapter for a franchise that has not won a pennant since 1945 or a World Series since 1908. When he took a routine

physical at 18, Mr. Santo was found to have juvenile diabetes. “I didn’t know what it was, so I went to the library and looked it up,” he told The Chicago Sun-Times in 1990. “I can still remember the feeling I had when I read the description: life expectancy of a juvenile insulindependent diabetic: 25 years. It also stated that it would cause blindness, kidney failure and hardening of the arteries. At that point, I said to myself, ‘I’m going to fight this thing and beat it.’ That’s how badly I wanted to live and be a big league ballplayer.” Mr. Santo took insulin but kept his diabetes a secret from the Cubs until he was named to his first All-Star team in 1963. He did not allow the public to know of his diabetes until his final years with the Cubs. After his playing days ended, Mr. Santo raised millions of dollars for diabetes research. The disease took a heavy toll on him. He had heart attacks, went through
quadruple-bypass surgery, then underwent amputation of his legs, in 2001 and 2002, as a result of circulatory problems. Using prostheses and walking with a cane, he persevered as a broadcaster, elated when things went right and deflated when the Cubs were, well, the Cubs. Ernie Banks was known as Mr. Cub. Nonetheless, as Billy Williams once put it: “If you say Chicago Cubs, you say Ron Santo.”

GOP blocks Dems’ tax plan for upper incomes ‘Peace of mind’ that taxes won’t increase needed, Obama says By David Espo
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans derailed legislation Saturday to extend expiring tax cuts at all but the highest income levels in a political showdown that paradoxically clears a path for a compromise with the White House on steps to boost the economy. “We need to get this resolved, and I’m confident we can do it,” President Barack Obama said shortly after the near party-line votes. The public must have “the peace of mind that their taxes will not go up” on Jan. 1, he added. Obama has signaled that he will bow to Republican demands for extending tax cuts at all income levels, and his remarks capped a day that lurched between political conflict and talk of compromise on an issue that played a leading role in last month’s elections. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., eyeing the 2012 campaign, accused Republicans of siding with “millionaires and billion-
aires” with their rejection of proposals that would let tax cuts passed during George W. Bush’s presidency lapse on seven-figure incomes. Republicans noted that unemployment rose to 9.8 percent last month and said it made no sense to raise taxes on anyone in a weak economy. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., jabbed that Democrats were undergoing a “political catharsis” in public after losing control of the House and surrendering several seats in the Senate in the Nov. 2 election.
Hoping for compromise But the rhetoric subsided quickly after the votes, and Senate leaders in both parties said they hoped political clashes would give way to compromise in the next several days. Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, the GOP leader, said he was relatively confident there would be a deal with the White House “not to raise taxes in the middle of a recession.” He said talks were continuing
on the length of an extension to be enacted for the cuts that were put in place in 2001 and 2003. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he hoped for an agreement by the middle or end of next week on legislation that would combine an extension of tax cuts with a renewal of expiring jobless benefits for the longterm unemployed. Officials have said that in addition to tax cuts and unemployment benefits, the White House wants to include renewal of several other tax provisions that are expiring. They include a break for lowerand middle-class wage earners, even if they don’t make enough to pay the government, as well as for college students and for companies that hire the unemployed. Key lawmakers and administration officials have been at work negotiating the terms of a possible deal for several days. But many congressional Democrats privately have expressed anger at Obama for his willingness to surrender to Republican demands to let the tax cuts remain in place at upper incomes, and numerous officials said no compromise would be possible until they had engineered votes in both the House and Senate.

Briefly: World Spain threatens striking workers with jail terms MADRID — Spain placed striking air traffic controllers under military authority Saturday and threatened them with jail terms in an unprecedented emergency order to get planes back in the skies and clear chaotic airports clogged with irate travelers. Hours after the order was issued at an emergency Cabinet meeting, officials said strikers were returning to work but that it could take up to two days before flights return to normal. Spain got the all-clear from Eurocontrol, Europe’s air traffic control agency, to reopen air space closed Friday when the wildcat strike began, ruining the start of a long holiday weekend for hundreds of thousands of people. Many travelers stood shouldto-shoulder at airport terminals or slept anywhere they could, including hunching over abandoned customer service desks or against luggage carts. The chaos served up yet another headache for a beleaguered Socialist government writhing at the center of Europe’s debt crisis and struggling to overcome recession as it trails badly in the polls with elections due in 2012.
Ivory Coast elections ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — The two candidates in Ivory Coast’s disputed presidential election took dueling oaths of office Saturday after each claimed victory, as the political
crisis spiraled out of control and renewed unrest in this country once split in two by civil war. Incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo defied calls from the United States, France and the United Nations to concede defeat, wrapping himself in the Ivorian flag as he was sworn in for another term. Hours later, opposition candidate Alassane Ouattara announced that he, too, had taken his own oath. Saturday’s developments leave Ivory Coast with two men who both claim to be president, furthering inflaming the political chaos in the West African nation whose once-prosperous economy was destroyed by the brief 2002-2003 civil war.
Iran: U.N. sent spies TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s intelligence minister accused the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency of sending spies in the guise of inspectors to collect information about Iran’s nuclear activities, state TV reported Saturday. The claim was another sign that Iran has hardened its stance since the assassination a week ago of a prominent nuclear scientist and the wounding of another. Iran is to hold talks beginning Monday in Geneva with world powers trying to persuade it to curtail key elements of its nuclear work. Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi said that inspectors sent by the International Atomic Energy Agency had engaged in espionage and the Vienna-based agency must take responsibility for their actions.

WikiLeaks loses significant source of revenue in PayPal By Juergen Baetz
The Associated Press
BERLIN — WikiLeaks has lost a major source of revenue after the online payment service provider PayPal cut off its account used to collect donations, saying the website is engaged in illegal activity. The announcement also came as WikiLeaks is struggling to keep its website accessible after service providers such as Amazon dropped contracts, and governments and hackers continued to hound the organization. The weekend move by PayPal came as WikiLeaks’ release of hundreds of thousands of United States diplomatic cables brought commercial organizations on the Internet that have business ties with the organization under more scrutiny.
WikiLeaks also is under legal pressure in several countries, including the U.S., and a former colleague of founder Julian Assange has said he will launch of a competing platform. Donating money to WikiLeaks via PayPal was not possible anymore Saturday, generating an error message saying: “This recipient is currently unable to receive money.” PayPal said in a blog posting that cutting off WikiLeaks’ account was prompted by a violation of the service provider’s policy, “which states that our payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity.” The short notice was dated Friday, and a spokeswoman for PayPal Germany declined Saturday to elaborate and referred to
the official blog posting. WikiLeaks confirmed the latest trouble in its Twitter account, saying: “PayPal bans WikiLeaks after U.S. government pressure.” WikiLeaks has embarrassed Washington and foreign leaders by releasing a trove of brutally frank U.S. diplomatic cables. PayPal, a subsidiary of U.S.based online marketplace operator EBay Inc., offers online payment services that are one of several ways WikiLeaks collects donations — and until now was probably the most secure and convenient way to support the organization. The other options listed on WikiLeaks’ website are through mail to an Australian post office box, through bank transfers to accounts in Switzerland, Germany or Iceland, as well as through one “credit card processing partner” in Switzerland.

Two teenage boys from central Minnesota are accused of stealing at least 17 calves to start their own dairy farm. Authorities this week arrested a 19-year-old from Rothsay and a 16-year-old from Barnesville. Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner said deputies received a tip that led them to 17 calves and eventually the teens. The calves are believed to have been stolen from three counties: Douglas, Stearns and Todd. Investigators said the teens told them they wanted to start their own dairy farm. They said the teens planned to keep the heifers and sell the bulls, splitting the profits.
“Secret Santas” are roaming the streets of North Carolina, handing out $100 handshakes. The Charlotte Observer reported that a crew of donors, who insist on anonymity, handed out the money Friday to anyone who looked like they could use it. Felicia Adams was handed $100 while she was working at a Goodwill outlet store. She said the money will help her get to New York to visit her father, who is dying of cancer. The donors take thousands of dollars from their own bank accounts to hand out. It’s the fourth year the random acts of kindness have been done in Charlotte.
U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel returned to his home turf in the New York City’s Harlem neighborhood Saturday, saying he still loves Congress — despite a showdown with colleagues over ethics violations that led to his censure by the House. “I have not lost my ability to love the Congress and to love this country,” the 80-year-old Democrat told reporters at Harlem Hospital, where a crowd at a town hall meeting gave him a standing, cheering ovation as he entered. Dapper in a dark suit and tie, Rangel appeared confident and as defiant as ever about the allegations that led to his public scolding Thursday.
The slow-moving U.N. talks on combating global warming took a step forward Saturday with revised proposals for a $100 billion-a-year climate aid fund and other issues for debate by the world’s environment ministers this week. Despite that advance, the chairwoman of key closed-door negotiations warned the open conference that obstacles remain to what delegates hope will be a package of decisions next Friday on financial and other side matters under the U.N. climate treaty. “Progress has been made in some areas,” Zimbabwe’s Margaret Mukahanana-Sangarwe said. But she said the talks were “going backwards” on important issues.

Initiative instigator Eyman is back By Bill Sheets
The (Everett) Herald
MUKILTEO — Tim Eyman grew up in what he once described as “sort of a cowboy area” of Yakima, and his recent flurry of activity in a sense resembles an old Western shootout. The professional initiative instigator is riling up the townsfolk, either fer’ him or agin’ him, more than he has for some time. “You have to come out with all guns a-blazin’,” Eyman said. “It’s the only thing that ever works.” Emboldened by his success in helping stop the deployment of traffic enforcement cameras in his hometown of Mukilteo and by the passage of another of his statewide tax-limiting measures, Eyman is blasting away on several flanks. He’s fighting plans for traffic cameras in Monroe and Bellingham. He spoke against a possible increase of car-tab fees by Snohomish County. He exchanged fire with the state Transportation Commission over its decision to raise ferry fares 2½ percent and opposes its recommendation for a $3.50 toll on state Highway 520, the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge between Seattle and Medina, to help pay for a new span.
Eyman comeback All of this comes just a year after some newspaper and broadcast editorial writers were speculating about the end of Eyman. After sponsoring several successful initiatives, most aimed at cutting taxes, Eyman, 44, had been on a bit of a losing streak. His 2008 measure to open carpool lanes to all traffic at nonpeak hours lost at the ballot box, as did his 2009 initiative to cap revenue collected by cities, counties and the state. Whether he struck just the right chord with voters this year, was helped by the anti-tax sentiment nationwide or both, Eyman is back. “It was just an interesting year, where it was like everything we’d been advocating for 11 years suddenly became monstrously mainstream and widely accepted,”
he said. This year’s I-1053 requires any state tax increase to be approved by two-thirds majority in the Legislature, and any fee increase by a simple majority. Eyman got a similar measure passed in 2007, I-960, but it was overturned this year by the Legislature under a law that allows initiatives to be suspended after two years.
Letting voters decide Fighting taxes is still clearly close to Eyman’s heart, but he says his emphasis now is on letting voters decide. “This is not a debate over is a toll good or bad, is a ferry fare increase good or bad, are car-tab fees good or bad. It’s a question of who should decide.” Still, Eyman has strong opinions on each of his current pet issues. He claims the motives for traffic cameras are strictly financial and not motivated by safety, despite some officials’ insistence to the contrary. He describes government as a wild stallion that will run amok with taxing and spending if it is not reined in. “Every initiative that I’ve passed is trying to put a saddle on that wild stallion and trying to focus it in a particular direction,” he said. Despite those apparent convictions, some say Eyman’s in it for the money. He makes his living from a fund called “Help Us Help Taxpayers,” for which he actively solicits donations. “He seems to be out showing up at local governments to try to gin up some more work for himself. He just does it as a moneymaker for himself,” said state Rep. Hans Dunshee, D-Snohomish, chairman of the House capital budget committee. “If somebody would pay him to run an initiative to outlaw blue monkeys, he’d do it.”
Second mortgage Eyman took out a second, $250,000 mortgage on his house to help gather enough signatures to qualify I-1053 for the ballot. Later, as Dunshee pointed out, oil companies
and banks were among those that came to the initiative’s rescue. British Petroleum, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Tesoro were among its donors. Eyman, though, still has $237,000 to pay on his mortgage, he said. According to state disclosure forms, he made $53,644 last year from Help Us Help Taxpayers and, if 2010 ended now, he would end up with $36,201. He gets half of the fund, and his two partners, Mike and Jack Fagan of Spokane, split the rest. Eyman is beating the bushes — “begging,” he says half-jokingly — for contriThe Associated Press butions to help him pay off Tim Eyman is interviewed by the news media on Election Night in Seattle that mortgage. on Nov. 2 after early returns show that two ballot initiatives he
sponsored are passing.
Newest causes Meanwhile, he’s still beating the drum for his causes. He recently had a sharp exchange with members of the state Transportation Commission over its decision to increase ferry fares by 2½ percent. Eyman argued that although I-1053 doesn’t take effect until Dec. 2, the commission should hold off on any decisions until after then to reflect the intent of the voters in placing fee increases in the hands of the Legislature. “Nobody’s fingerprints are anywhere on this decision,” he said later, noting the commissioners are appointed, not elected. Commissioner Richard Ford of Seattle, a former Port of Seattle executive director, said the increase was part of the ferry system’s long-term plan to try to meet expenses. Even with the increase, which takes effect Jan. 1, fares will not come close to covering the system’s costs, officials say. “It means the rest of the taxpayers pay it,” Ford said. “It costs a lot to run those ferries, and the fuel costs have been killing them.” Eyman says governments will always say that. “When it comes to government, it’s always a crisis, they’re saying, ‘It’s a crisis now, so we need to bend the rules.’”
Eyman’s initiative record Tim Eyman started his career in the 1990s trying to get funding for what would become Safeco Field — where the Seattle Mariners baseball team plays — put up for a public vote. Since then, he’s backed more than 20 statewide initiatives and now one city measure in Mukilteo, where he lives. He’s gotten enough signatures to put a dozen measures on the ballot. Here’s how they fared:
1997 ■ Began Initiative 200, to eliminate affirmative action in state and local governments. Later led by conservative talk-radio host John Carlson. Approved in 1998.
1999 ■ I-695, to reduce motor-vehicle excise taxes (car tabs) to a flat $30 and to prevent any state or local jurisdiction from raising taxes or fees without a vote of the people. Approved, although later overturned by the Supreme Court; Legislature passed the car tab portion.
■ I-722, imposing a 2 percent limit on property tax increases (at the time 6 percent). Approved, overturned in court.
■ I-960, to require voter approval or a twothirds legislative vote for any tax increase. Approved.
■ I-745, requiring that 90 percent of transportation taxes be spent for roads. Defeated.
2001 ■ I-747, limiting property tax increases to 1 percent per year. Approved.
2002 ■ I-776, axing taxes for car registration. Approved, overturned in court.
2004 ■ I-892, to reduce property taxes. Defeated.
■ I-985, to open carpool lanes to all traffic in nonpeak hours. Defeated.
2009 ■ I-1033, to cap revenue that can be raised by cities, counties and states. Defeated.

Hearing on Nippon permit for biomass project Monday PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles City Council will conduct a hearing Monday on an appeal of a shoreline development permit granted to Nippon Paper Industries USA Inc. for its $71 million biomass project. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St.
It will be a closed-record hearing, meaning that no further testimony or comment will be taken that day. The seven environmental groups that filed the appeal contend that the shoreline management permit should have listed Nippon’s proposal as an electric utility.

Five of the environmental groups — Port Townsend AirWatchers, Olympic Forest Coalition, Olympic Environmental Council, No Biomass Burn of Seattle and the World Temperate Rainforest Network — also have filed an appeal challenging a state permit allowing Port Townsend Paper Corp. to expand its biomass capacity. The appeal against the Port Townsend project, which was filed Nov. 22 with the state Pollution Control Hearings Board, is in response to the state Department of Ecology’s granting Oct. 25 of a “notice of construction” permit for a $55 million project and its July finding that the biomass project had no probable adverse environmental impact, allowing the mill to move ahead with the plans to install a steam turbine.

The coalition members have appealed the city’s shoreline development permit decision because of several concerns, they said in a statement. They listed the following concerns that the biomass project would: ■ Draw millions of gallons of water every day from the Elwha River that flows from Olympia National Park. ■ Threaten the sustainability of forest ecosystems. ■ Increase air and water pollution. ■ Negatively impact public access to, and enjoyment of, the shoreline and Waterfront Trail. ■ Add more carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the proposed plant and associated

Youth drop-in center marks 1st year By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — Just over a year ago, three women founded The Answer For Youth, a drop-in center for young people. After their inaugural year, the trio believe they still have a good answer. The center was founded in October 2009 by Pam Fosnes, Susan Hillgren and Cookie Kalfur. It is open 14 hours per week, allowing at-risk young people between 13 and 24 — and sometimes older — to stop by for help, resources or just a listening ear, Hillgren said. Hillgren planned the organization to be a place that was modeled after a family, saying that all the youngsters who go there know that they are cared for but sometimes hear the hard truths.
Prayer part of work She also wanted a place that celebrated spirituality. “Here, we pray,” she said. “I don’t care who they
are praying to — God can do the work. It is a start.” She said her primary goal is to support the young people where they are. “We don’t have the resources to push them to the next level,” she said. “But if we can keep them at the level they are functioning now — that is our goal.” Hillgren, now the executive director, said the organization has had 2,900 visits from 250 different people. The group has served 561 children in day care. Participants have done 600 hours of community service. “We try and help them in any way we can,” Kalfur, a former principal of Choice Alternative High School, now known as Lincoln High School. “We do counseling by appointment, educational support by appointment and even some health evaluations by appointment.” The building, located at 711 E. Second St., is also host to Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings,
Kalfur said. Fosnes, a nurse, also worked with the students on an organic garden at the center in which the young people worked, harvested, cleaned and cooked the vegetables. “That went over really well,” Hillgren said. Just in rent and monthly bills, the organization costs about $1,100 a month to run, Hillgren said.
Individual donations Donations from individuals make up most of that, but the organization still seeks help every month. “We really need some monthly donors,” Hillgren said. Local churches also have stepped up to help. First Presbyterian is the latest, donating $2,100 in proceeds from its harvest festival in October, Fosnes said. In addition to emotional and academic support, the drop-in center also houses a food pantry and clothing donations. The Answer For Youth is open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Sarge’s Place breaks ground, begins work By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News
FORKS — About 60 people attended a Saturday groundbreaking — and the beginnings of renovations — for a sanctuary for homeless veterans. The event, which began at 10 a.m., drew supporters and volunteers who began breaking down portions of the building up for renovation. Sarge’s Place, housed in a former apartment house — also known as the Peterson Building — at 260 Ash Ave. in Forks is expected to open in the spring for homeless rural veterans. The North Olympic Regional Veterans Housing Network has been working on the project for about three years, said Cheri Fleck, project organizer and
housing network president. The facility will contain 12 transitional beds, including eight for men and four for women on the first floor. Sleeping areas will be separated by tall partitions. Three two-bedroom family apartments will be on the second floor. Residents can stay in the transitional beds for up to two years and in the apartments indefinitely. Among the volunteers was the Clallam County chapter of the Roughnecks, a motorcycle group made up largely of law enforcement officers, said Eric Cram, one of the members. Also attending the groundbreaking was Judith Morris, on behalf of Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, who represents the 6th Congressional District, which
includes the North Olympic Peninsula. Fleck and her team began working on Sarge’s Place about three years ago. The federal Department of Housing and Urban Development — with help from U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell — awarded the nonprofit North Olympic Regional Veterans Housing Network a $487,000 grant to buy and remodel the building. The network also received a federal Department of Veterans Affairs daily grant of up to $38.90 per veteran for operating expenses.

School officials brainstorm 5-year strategic plan PORT ANGELES — Action plans for the Port Angeles School District — gleaned from a two-day meeting of citizens, staff and students this weekend — are being prepared for presentation for the School Board to evaluate at its meeting Monday, Dec. 13. The district hosted the public workshop Friday and Saturday at the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center to brainstorm ideas for the five-year strategic plan. The plan, developed by about 80 people at the community forum, are based on the five categories adopted by the board earlier this year: organizational culture, student achievement, resources, adaptability in support of student achievement and community support. The 80 people who participated in the brainstorming session were divided into groups, with each working on a specific goal, Superintendent Jane Pryne said. Each group developed an overarching theme in each area, based on research done by a board subcommittee over the past couple of months. After the goals were developed, they were individually voted on by the whole group.
The two-day forum began with an evaluation of the state of the district. Student achievement is on the rise at the Port Angeles School District, despite a drop in state resources, district officials said. School Board member

It rose to 78 percent in 2009. “We are building back up,” Happe said during her presentation on organizational culture. “It’s a pretty good metric of student satisfaction within the school.” A student survey found that 68 percent of students either agreed or strongly agreed that teachers expect them to succeed. “Sixty-eight percent — not 100 [percent],” Happe said.

other conference. “This was an opportunity for people to meet face to face and talk about their business,” Moore said. “I have heard that a lot of the attendees made some valuable contacts today.” Sarita Shaffer of Viva Farms in Skagit County said the average age of farmers is 57 years old, and it is necessary to replenish the farming workforce in order for the local food movement to succeed. “It’s very difficult what farmers do, and they need to know that what they do has some value,” she said. “The best thing is to give them business, but even words of encouragement
are very important.” Many of the attendees were small local food producers. The Port Townsend Food Co-op had seven representatives.
More than price Co-op outreach manager Brwyn Griffin said that locally grown food can be more expensive than other food, but its value is judged on factors other than price. “If someone pays more for locally grown food, they need to realize what they are not paying for,” she said. Those who buy food grown elsewhere — which may be cheaper — “are not
paying to support the community,” Griffin said. “They are not keeping the dollars local, and they are not being responsible about the environmental cost of the production methods.” Griffin said that education is a necessity for letting local farmers know that a market exists. Baril also values consumer education, saying that the greatest obstacle to increased local food production is perceptual. Port Townsend Mayor Michelle Sandoval said that the government can speed the rate of increasing local food production by creating opportunities for
affordable housing. Farmers are enthusiastic about the idea of supplying 20 percent of local food but first need some assurance of the demand. “I can go from producing 50 cartons of eggs a week to 80 cartons a week using the system that I have in place,” said Chimacum farmer John Bellow. “But if I have to go up to 300 cartons a week, I will need to add more equipment and develop new systems.”

Burglaries sentence 3 hurt in Lake Crescent wreck Saturday evening for homeless man Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — A 27-year-old Port Angeles man was sentenced to three years in state prison as a result of a plea agreement in several summertime burglary cases. Andrew Mahlum, 27, who is homeless, was sentenced in Clallam County Superior Court on Monday. Mahlum pleaded guilty to two counts of seconddegree burglary, seconddegree theft, residential burglary, third-degree theft, second-degree trafficking stolen property and thirddegree malicious mischief.
The cases included theft from a school and some electronics items. Two laptop computers were reported missing Aug. 8 by the Queen of Angels School. When Port Angeles police officers contacted Jeneva Maneval on another matter, she told officers that Mahlum had left some electronic items in her backyard and that he had also stolen a Nintendo Wii from her home on West 11th Street. The electronic items are believed to include those taken from the school. Court documents said
that after Maneval confronted Mahlum about the Wii, he purchased a new one for her. Officers eventually located the stolen Wii at Peninsula Pawn Brokers. According to court documents, police also found Mahlum with a video camera. Mahlum was among those arrested following investigations of more than 60 home burglaries in the Port Angeles area this summer. A victim restitution hearing will be held March 11 in Clallam County Superior Court.

PA man expands eatery after attack By Diane Urbani de la Paz
Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — In the face of a series of tests and one brutal crime, Jaime Bautista has constructed an American dream. Bautista, 40, is the owner of the n e w l y enlarged F i e s t a Jalisco restaurant in Port Ange- Bautista les, a place with flamboyant Mexican music and murals and 14 employees — or make that “15, with me; sometimes I work,” he tells a reporter. Just then, a man named Bruce leans out from a Fiesta booth and remarks that he rarely sees Bautista as he is for this moment: sitting down in his own restaurant. Bautista, a compact man with cafe-con-leche skin, was the victim of a vicious assault earlier this year.
Attacked outside On the night of March 21, a man wearing a ski mask and brandishing a 6-inch knife attacked Bautista outside his restaurant. The man grabbed Bautista by the shoulders and struck him, knocking him to the asphalt. He then kicked him several times in the head, took Bautista’s wallet and escaped on foot, according to Port Angeles Police Dep-
uty Chief Brian Smith. The assailant had already punctured one of the rear tires on Bautista’s pickup truck, Smith said, and was waiting for the restaurateur when he walked out of the back door at about 10:45 p.m. Bautista went to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles, where he stayed overnight. The next day, a Monday, he went home to his wife, Angeles, and their three young children.
‘A shock’ It was “a shock,” to have this happen in his adopted home town of Port Angeles, Bautista said. He’d had $16 in his wallet along with his credit cards and said he would have handed them over had the robber merely asked. “I still feel like he took something [else] from me. It’s difficult to describe,” Bautista said. His wife, whom he married on Valentine’s Day in 2006, “was very sad,” he added. “I always told her, ‘We’re safe’” in Port Angeles. “I don’t blame her for being scared.” But Bautista, who’s been sole proprietor of Fiesta Jalisco since 2005, speaks of the assault only when a reporter asks about it. He’s much more interested in talking about the life he’s built here. Bautista was fresh out of high school when he left his native Mexico City. The 18-year-old, looking for
adventure, came first to Portland, Ore., amid a rainstorm. The weather and atmosphere weren’t hospitable, and he thought about turning back.
space, nearly doubling the seating capacity to 150. The move “shows my commitment to the community,” Bautista said. Right after opening up the remodeled space on Labor Day weekend, he and the summer crew found themselves with a bustling crowd of tourists and locals filling every table. “That blew my mind. I never thought we were going to fill it that quick,” Bautista recalled. There have been some good, busy days and nights since, and Bautista said he hasn’t had to lay off all of his summer workers. Instead, he trimmed their hours. If it were him, he said, he would rather have something than no job at all. Clearly, Bautista relishes his work, especially the interaction with people. But ask what gives him the most joy, and he tells the story of getting to know Angeles, a woman from the town of Tonaya, Mexico, through letters and long talks on the telephone — before they had met face to face. No, the Bautistas did not meet on the Internet. A mutual friend put them in touch, and they started out as old-fashioned pen pals, while he lived in Port Angeles and she in Tonaya.
“But I’m stubborn” and not dampened by a little challenge. Still, “I didn’t think it was going to last long,” Bautista said of his crossing into the United States in 1988 — without legal immigration documents. It took him 10 years to become a naturalized U.S. citizen; during that period, he moved from small town to town, from Lincoln City, Ore., to Eugene, Ore., and then to Forks, where a friend wanted him to come work in a restaurant. “I don’t care for the big city,” he said. “There’s too much crime.” In 2002, he and a business partner left Forks to open two restaurants: Fiesta Jaliscos in Port Angeles and Port Hadlock. The partnership didn’t work out, and Bautista took over the Port Angeles restaurant at 636 E. Front St. in 2005. Pedro Arceo still owns the Hadlock Fiesta Jalisco. This September, as the recession lingered in the form of high unemployment in Clallam County, Bautista Fell in love over phone took a risk. “I fell in love with her just talking to her” on the Expanded restaurant phone, he recalled. He expanded his place “She didn’t send me a into the adjacent vacant picture until about a year
after we started talking.” When they met, Bautista said, he knew she was the one. They had a church wedding in Mexico, and then he brought her here on a fiancee visa for their U.S.-legal ceremony. At first, “she had a hard time. She has a big family down in Mexico. She left them to come up here to a different world,” Bautista said. Now Angeles has settled in; she’s the mother of Selena, 4, Sebastian, 2, and Julissa, 1, a “stay-at-home” mom who doesn’t stay home much. Bautista believes Port Angeles is still a good place to raise children and looks forward to watching his children grow up here, then go to college. “I don’t feel any prejudice here” against his Mexican ethnicity, Bautista said. “I’ve never felt that.” As for the attack of last spring, “I’ve put that ordeal behind me.”
Bautista said he believes he knows who his attacker is. “When I go out, I’m more aware of my surroundings,” he said. “But I’m not going to let that stop me from doing what I have to do and what I like to do.” Fiesta Jalisco is “like my first baby,” he said with a smile. “I love this country” for the opportunities it has given him Bautista added. Bautista’s friend and accountant Duane Wolfe said the restaurateur has also put considerable effort toward improving his operation. “Most people don’t work their businesses as hard as he does. He works extremely hard,” Wolfe said. He remarked, too, on the landscaping and design of the restaurant, which he considers some of the bestlooking in Port Angeles. The Fiesta Jalisco building used to be “just a small box,” Wolfe said, adding that it used to be The Big Scoop, an ice-cream parlor, in the 1980s. Bautista, for his part, said the holiday season has started off well: After the Nov. 27 tree lighting downtown, Fiesta Jalisco saw a healthy rush of patrons. “It’s a good feeling,” Bautista said, “being busy.”
The Port Angeles Police Department is actively investigating the case, according to Smith. Over the past nine months, “we have invested quite a bit” of detective time, Smith said. Jason Viada, the department’s detective supervisor, added that a witness was interviewed “just the other ________ day” and that he is confident that the police have a Features Editor Diane Urbani suspect, though he declined de la Paz can be reached at 360to estimate when that sus- 417-3550 or diane.urbani@ pect may be arrested. peninsuladailynews.com.

PA motorcyclist is in serious condition Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles motorcyclist was in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Saturday after a wreck at about 5:20 p.m. Friday. Thomas Paxton, 51, was not breathing on his own when he was airlifted to Harborview from Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles, said Lt. Chris Old of the State Patrol on Friday. He had massive internal bleeding and serious head injuries, Old said, as well as two broken wrists. The Harborview hospital nursing supervisor said Paxton was in serious condition as of Saturday evening.
Harold Heagy, 40, also of Port Angeles, was driving the car that hit Paxton and suffered head, neck and rib injuries, State Patrol said. He was taken to OMC but was no longer there by Saturday morning, the nursing supervisor said. She did not know if he had been transferred or was treated and discharged.
Blocked for 4 hours State Highway 112 was blocked in both directions for four hours and 45 minutes, state Department of Transportation said. The State Patrol gave this account of the wreck: Heagy was traveling west on state Highway 112 in a 1999 Saturn SL2 near Nordstrom Road, about

Feels like only yesterday Jen I was rolling in Lancaster at 4 a.m. after Dollar Beer Night, or rather, Dollar Beer Afternoon. Yet now I find myself with a mortgage, four types of insurance and a retirement account consisting of a pitcher of laundry quarters. I don’t own a single stick of garbage-picked furniture anymore, and my shelves are made of wood, not milk crates. Despite my best efforts, I’ve managed to grow up. Matter of fact, I’m so grown up that I’m experiencing the existential angst of having done so.
Fortunately, the solution to my midlife crisis is soft, sweet, and cuddly with a pink belly, so my husband and I are adopting . . . a pit bull puppy. Recently we contacted a rescue agency that brought over a fine adoption candidate. We met and instantly loved an adolescent, energetic golden boy with an enormous head. He adored us, too. Everyone was on board with the adoption . . . except for the two spoiled, surly, middle-aged dogs who live here. Let’s just say they were less than hospitable. That’s when I realized I wasn’t the only one desperate for maturity. We adopted our pit bull Maisy and shepherd Loki eight shoeshredded, carpet-stained years ago. They went through rudimentary obedience training as puppies, but they’ve long since forgotten their manners. The problem is, we set the behavior bar terribly low.
We wanted two sweet dogs who’d coexist with our miserable cats and who’d be friendly toward guests, and, oh, boy, are they friendly! They’ll knock you over with the brute force of their love. Or they used to, back when people would still visit. Once we achieved those goals, we never pushed them any harder, and we wound up with two willful dogs who’d tell us in no uncertain terms when they were ready to eat, to potty and to be entertained. If we were very lucky, they’d make a tiny bit of room on the bed so we could sleep with them. Apparently this was bad. Perhaps when our friends would say stuff like, “You should really read Cesar Millan’s books,” or “No, seriously, please watch ‘The Dog Whisperer,’” or “Thank God you don’t have kids,” we should have taken the hint. But now I’m finally grown up enough to realize we must break the cycle. so we’ve forgone adoption while we bring Maisy
and Loki in line. We’ve enlisted them in a doggie boot camp, which is as much for us as it is for them. Despite acting like their pronged training collars were killing them dead, splat, the first time we attached them, they’ve quickly come around. In a few sessions, they now comprehend that everyone wins when they obey our cues. And we learned we don’t have to be Cesar himself to take control of our pets. Our old dogs, who’d grown accustomed to receiving forkbased bites of whatever I was eating (kind of a trick, I’d rationalize) now do real tricks for their treats; their days of being served on silverware are over. The dogs are much happier since we’ve taken charge. Through the training process, they’ve discovered not only that no squirrel tastes as good as discipline feels, but it’s easier to do what’s expected because ultimately the rewards are greater.
Hey, that might explain why I finally grew up, too. We’re so pleased with their progress that we’ll all be ready for a puppy shortly. We’ll start working with her immediately so she’ll grow up understanding expectations and won’t ever get stuck in a state of arrested development. Now if I could only train our middle-aged kitties not to barf in my shoes. Then again, there’s a reason no one calls themselves “The Cat Whisperer.” ________ Jen Lancaster is a humorist and the author of three books — Such a Pretty Fat, Pretty in Plaid and Bitter is the New Black.

How do you feel about tax cuts being extended for families that make more than $250,000 a year?
Retired sales manager Sequim
Retired teacher Port Townsend
Retired engineer Kala Point
Homemaker Port Angeles
Custodian Port Angeles
Health care worker Port Angeles
“I don’t want them extended. I believe those with higher incomes can afford to pay, and this money will be directed to provide services that could be cut, like health care.”
“I think it is only fair and good for the economy that we extend these tax cuts, but for everyone. In fact, I’d even make them permanent.”
“Fine with me. Actually, I would like to see a flat tax. That would be a perfect scenario. Just because you make more money shouldn’t make a difference.”
“That’s a hard one. I think I’m in favor of tax cuts for all. I believe the tax would directly affect small businesses. Extend the tax cut to all. How and why should we differentiate?”
Telephone company employee Port Angeles
“They shouldn’t raise taxes on anyone. I’m a small business owner. It would affect the people who try to create jobs. The government must learn to get by on less. Politicians are greedy.”
“I personally think the $250,000 family should maybe pay a little more than us $40,000 families, us normal people. It only seems fair for them to pay more.”
“They shouldn’t get that tax cut. The middle class is really hurting. The rich are getting richer, so they can afford it. It makes the most sense.”
“They should extend the tax cuts only for little persons like me. The rich get away with too much. They seem to make the rules for taxing the little people like me.”

Souvenirs from space With the space shuttle program nearing the end of its road, NASA is offering souvenir tchotchkes to schools, colleges and universities. For just $23.40 — to cover the cost of shipping and handling — your school can become the owner of an official space shuttle heat shield tile. There are 7,000 tiles available, first-come, firstserved. NASA says the purpose is to preserve the space shuttle’s history and inspire the “next generation of space explorers, scientists and engineers.” The lightweight tiles — which protected the shuttles from 3,000-degree temperatures on re-entry to Earth’s atmosphere — played a tragic role in the 2003 space shuttle Columbia disaster, which was triggered by a failure of the thermal protection system, of which tiles were a key component. Schools can apply to receive a tile at http:// gsaxcess.gov/NASAWel.htm. Peninsula Daily News sources Coffman discusses the United Nations Agenda 21, which “lays out a global plan to micromanage the human population, their property rights, what they can buy and sell, how they live, the energy they use, and what kind of communities they should live in — all in the name of protecting the environment.” Sens. Susan Collins (Republican, of Maine) and Maria Cantwell (Democrat, of Washington) are sponsoring a bill, the Consoli-

Hurricane Ridge Road to open daily Peninsula Daily News
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — A “grand winter opening” celebration will mark the beginning of Hurricane Ridge Road’s sevenday-per-week schedule at noon Friday, Dec. 17. Daily access to Hurricane Ridge’s skiing, snowshoeing and other winter fun will begin that day. “We hope the public will join us and our many partners in celebrating the beginning of winter on the Ridge,” said Karen Gustin, Olympic National Park superintendent. Until this year, Olympic National Park kept Hurricane Ridge Road open only Fridays through Sundays in the winter months. A city, civic and business effort to raise $75,000 matched federal funding pays for plowing the road on the remaining days — unless falling snow precludes the operation until the weather clears. Funds allowed the park to hire eight new staff members to keep the road open. Weather permitting, Hurricane Ridge Road will be open daily from 9 a.m. to dusk through the winter season, except for Christmas Day.
Shuttle buses Starting Dec. 17, a 12-passenger shuttle bus will leave twice a day Wednesday through Sunday from two Port Angeles locations: the Port Angeles Visitor Center, in front of The Landing mall at 121 E. Railroad Ave.; and the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. All Points Charters and Tours owner Willie Nelson is working with the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, the city of Port Angeles and the park to transport passengers to the popular snow-play spot 17 miles south of Port Angeles. Shuttle vans will depart from the Railroad Avenue visitor center at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. and will pick up passengers at the Vern Burton center at 9:05 a.m. and 1:05 p.m. before the 45-minute drive to the Ridge. Vans will leave Hurricane Ridge at about 11 a.m. and

Oregon, Auburn set up title tilt By Eddie Pells
The Associated Press
For Oregon, it’s not so much the funky uniforms as the players who wear them. For Auburn, it’s not so much about the bumpy road this season as where it will end. The Ducks and Tigers locked up spots in the national title game Saturday, while the nation’s other undefeated team, TCU, closed the day looking at a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Rose Bowl that still feels like a consolation prize. Ranked No. 1 in the AP Top 25, Oregon (12-0) defeated Oregon State 37-20 and No. 2 Auburn (130) routed No. 18 South Carolina 56-17 in the SEC title game to secure spots in the Newton BCS title game, Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. No. 3 TCU watched it all from home but got no help and got left out — the way some team does almost every year in a sport that refuses to adopt a playoff. Oregon opened as a 3-point favorite Saturday night at the Las Vegas Hilton sports book but within 30 minutes, the line went down to 1 point. The title pairing will become Kelly official tonight when the BCS awards spots in the Rose, Sugar, Orange and Fiesta Bowls along with the national championship game. Going into Saturday, the top two teams were flipped in the BCS standings, with Auburn at No. 1 and Oregon ranked No. 2. “It hasn’t really set in yet,” said Auburn coach Gene Chizik, who has a month-plus to prepare for stopping the nation’s top-scoring offense in the title game. “I know that’s where we’re going.” Oregon, the team with a multitude of uniform combinations that includes four helmets, five jerseys and four different color of socks, is seeking the first national title in program history. Behind running back LaMichael James, the Ducks average more than 50 points per game. “The one thing I think, and now I hope, is that we’re not known for our uniforms, we’re known for the players inside the uniforms and that’s what makes this thing special,” Ducks coach Chip Kelly said.
Tigers’ wild ride Auburn has been on a crazy ride this season, which has brought sometimes daily revelations about a payfor-play scheme involving quarterback Cam Newton’s failed recruitment to Mississippi State. Earlier in the week, Newton was cleared by the NCAA to play in the SEC title game and, once again, he played undistracted football, leading an SEC team to the BCS championship game for the fifth straight year. “It was a lot of guys keeping me focused,” Newton said. “I just want to thank them. There’s some resilient guys on this team. I’ve said that a billion times, but without the guys on this team, I wouldn’t have had the success I did.” Newton, who threw for 335 yards and four touchdowns Saturday, and James, who ran for 134 yards and two scores, are among the favorites to win the Heisman trophy when it’s awarded next Saturday. One day short of a month later, they go for an even bigger prize. The coaches traded compliments about their upcoming opponents and the stars they’ll be trying to stop come January. “I think, obviously, you’ve seen clips of Newton,” Kelly said. “He’s a tremendous football player, but it’s not just Cam Newton.” Newton is the latest in a long line of Auburn greats — including Heisman winners Pat Sullivan and Bo Jackson — but the school’s only other national title came in 1957, when Shug Jordan was coach. In 2004, the Tigers came close again, finishing 12-0 but getting left out of the championship game. Turn

All locked up UW clinches bowl bid with dramatic victory over WSU By Tim Booth
The Associated Press
PULLMAN — One drive, one throw and one career-defining moment for Jake Locker. No more debating his place in Washington lore. Locker will be remembered as the quarterback that brought Washington from its darkest point and returned the Huskies to the postseason. The senior quarterback, who turned down the NFL a year ago for one last shot at the postseason, threw
a 27-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse with 44 seconds left, and Washington became bowl eligible with a with a stirring 35-28 win over rival Washington State in the 103rd Apple Cup on Saturday night. Locker drove Washington 88 yards in under 4 minutes. His fade route to Kearse was perfectly on target, beating cornerback Nolan Washington and sending the purple-clad fans at Martin Stadium into frozen delirium. Turn

Bombs away Midrange shot fading out of prep basketball By Matt Schubert
Peninsula Daily News
Greg Glasser was a senior at Spanaway when the 3-point line was first introduced to high school basketball in 1987. The first thing he did when he heard the news: Get a roll of athletic tape, tape down a line 19 feet, 9 inches away from the hoop and start firing away. Fast forward 23 years later, and now the Sequim High School boys coach is trying to get his fifthgrade son to resist the same urge.
“The team that he is playing on, they are all trying to chuck the ball up from there,” Glasser said. As Glasser’s assistant, Larry Hill, said, “Anytime you put a line on the floor that’s going to be the challenge,” Indeed, outside of the dunk, the most popular shot in basketball these days is the 3-pointer. Regardless of age, whenever a player wanders into a gym to play, they are far more likely to start launching bombs from behind the arc than do anything else. Its siren song is simply too sweet.

“If you open the gym and the let kids go . . . the first shot 80 percent of the kids will take is a 3-point shot,” Forks boys coach Scott Justus said. “That’s exactly what they do. “It’s almost like let’s just take that line off the floor.”
Midrange jump shot Justus’ sentiment is one that isn’t completely off base for some old-school coaches. For the biggest casualty of the 3-point line is something many of them hold near and dear: the midrange jump shot. Turn
PORT ANGELES — The team that didn’t lose a single Olympic League game last season looked awfully shaky in its first this year. The Port Angeles girls basketball team held off several late challenges from a Sophia Baetz-less Kingston squad to win its first game of the season 45-40 on Friday night. Senior Allison Knowles broke a tie game twice in the fourth quarter with 3-point baskets, the last coming with Knowles 1:42 left, to help the Roughrider survive a game Kingston team. “I think we went into this game way too lightly,” said Knowles, one of four returning starters from last year’s 16-0 Olympic League champions. “We can’t do that. Every game is a different game with different players, you don’t know [the outcome].” Senior Jessica Madison scored a team-high 10 points and had five assists but only managed one field goal against a Kingston defense keying on her. Madison was limited to just two points in the final two quarters as Kingston climbed back into the game from a 21-13 halftime deficit thanks in large part to Amanda Carper. The sophomore shooting guard sank 5 of 6 shots for 12 points in the second half. That included a pair of 3-pointers that tied the game at 37 and 40 points late in the fourth quarter. But Knowles bailed the Roughriders out both times with clutch 3’s from the wing set up by passes from Taylyn Jeffers and Madison. “We couldn’t hit shots,” Riders head coach Mike Knowles said. “We shoot the ball really well, and tonight was not a night to shoot the ball.” Indeed, the Riders struggled all game to hit shots.

Waller scorches Vancouver for win Pirates guard hits for 38; Von Vogt gets first victory Peninsula Daily News
PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College men’s basketball team rebounded from an 0-2 start to the season with a 82-73 home win over Vancouver Island on Saturday night. Sammeon Wallerexploded for 38 points on 12-of-20 shooting to boost the Pirates to their first win under head coach Lance Von Waller Vogt. “It’s a huge win for a bunch of young guys who haven’t won a game like this at the college level,” Von Vogt said.
NWAACC Waller’s point total is the most for a Pirate since Ryan Rutherford scored 41 against Olympic last January. Thad Vinson added 13 points and DeJuan Smith scored 12 in the Peninsula win. The Pirates were trailing Vancouver, the fourth-ranked university in Canada, 33-13 with seven minutes to go before the half when they went on a 19-6 run to cut the lead down to seven at halftime. “We were down twenty points at one time,” Von Vogt said. “But we changed the tides and ended up running away with it.” The Pirates will next travel to the Mount Hood Crossover Tournament on Dec. 17 starting at 6 p.m.

2A/1A Boys Hoops Capsules Port Angeles (2A) ■ Head coach: Wes Armstrong (second year; 12-11 overall) ■ Last year: 9-7 in Olympic League, 12-11 overall; reached 3A districts ■ Returning starters: Colin Wheeler (6-3, Sr., G/F); Kyler Morgan (6-2, Sr. G); Ian Ward (6-3, Sr., F) ■ Top newcomers: Justin Antioquia (6-2, Sr., G); Casey Smith (6-5, Sr., C); Hayden McCartney (6-3, Jr., F); Keenen Walker (5-10, Jr., G); Cameron Braithwaite (5-9, Jr., PG) ■ Player to watch: Colin Wheeler The All-Olympic League honorable mention forward came on at the end of his junior year, averaging 16.0 points per game in the last 10 contests. ■ Outlook: The Roughriders rebounded from a dismal three-win season in 2008-09 by returning to the Class 3A district playoffs in head coach Wes Armstrong’s first year. The Riders lost all but three players from that 12-11 team, but Armstrong is confident this year’s squad is talented enough to fill the void. “We will have tremendous depth at all positions and we are getting much better at putting the ball in the basket. But our number one key to success is getting after it on the defensive end,” Armstrong said. “For us to compete we need to limit our opponents scoring opportunities and make it difficult for them to run their offensive sets.” Armstrong wants his team to push the ball more this season. The team will press on defense while playing mostly man-to-man. “We think all the pieces are there to compete for one of the top spots in the Olympic League,” Armstrong said.
Sequim (2A) ■ Head coach: Greg Glasser (fourth year; 27-42 overall) ■ Last year: 9-7 in Olympic League, 10-12 overall; reached 2A districts ■ Returning starters: Corbin Webb (6-1, Jr., G) ■ Top newcomers: Jayson Brocklesby (6-2, Soph., F), Gabe Carter (6-3, Soph., F) ■ Player to watch: Corbin Webb The Wolves’ starting point guard since his freshman year, Webb is as polished as they come in the Olympic League. ■ Outlook: Sequim lost an awful lot from a team that was in the Olympic League race nearly the entire regular season. Four of five starters are gone — one being junior Frank Catelli, who didn’t come out this winter — with only Webb and senior Nick Camporini (6-1, G/F) significant contributors last year. Kenny Meier (5-9, Sr., G) and Josh McMinn (6-3, Sr., F) also saw some time. “I think that learning by fire is what’s going to happen for us,” said Sequim head coach Greg Glasser, whose team won at 3A Bainbridge 64-59 in its first game of the season. Most of the team played dozens of games together during the summer and fall in AAU competition. So the Wolves may be more developed than their experience suggests. “Our basketball IQ is pretty high,” Glasser said. “These guys understand the game. They understand what to do in clutch situations. “We’re not going to be as athletic as some of the other teams in the Olympic League, but I think with our anticipation and our knowledge of the game, that’s what’s going to make us competitive this year.”
Port Townsend (1A) ■ Head coach: Tom Webster (first year) ■ Last year: 6-10 in Olympic League, 9-14 overall; reached 1A Tri-District ■ Returning starters: Seiji Thielk (6-3, Sr., G); Jacob DeBerry (6-3, Sr., C); Hab Rubio (5-7, Sr., PG) ■ Top newcomers: Matt Juran (6-3, Sr., C); Kylen Solvik (6-3, Jr., G/F); Kyle Kelly (6-0, Soph., G); Robert Ristick (6-2., Sr., F) ■ Player to watch: Jacob DeBerry One of the Redskins’ top rebounders last year, DeBerry will be counted on to score more this season.
Also . . .
■ More hoops previews to come later this week
■ Outlook: Tom Webster begins the second leg of his three-sport tour by taking over a Redskins team that will once again make its bones on defense. “Team defense is a PT tradition,” said Webster, who promises to stick to the same man-to-man principles outgoing coach John Stroeder taught. “We’ve got to keep that going.” Stroeder still visits practices whenever his schedule allows, providing the same bellowing defensive voice that led the Redskins to state twice in 2007-09. With the team’s two top scorers from last year gone — Eric Thomas and Evan O’Brien — the bigger concern seems to be where the points will come from. “We’ve got guys who are willing to shoot it,” Webster said. “We’re going to find out in a hurry [who will take that role]. “I would love to score more than like 30 points a game, which PT did win games scoring around 30 points a game [before].” Port Townsend must finish above two 2A teams in order to reach the playoffs.
Forks (1A) ■ Head coach: Scott Justus (second year, 150-77 overall in previous seasons) ■ Last year: 4-10 in SWL Evergreen Division, 8-12 overall; missed playoffs ■ Returning starters: Frank Noles (6-1, Sr., F); Brady Castellano (6-3, Jr., F); Tyler Penn (5-11, Jr., G); Jonah Penn (5-10, Jr., PG) ■ Top newcomers: Bryce Johnson (6-2, Sr., C); Cameron Leons (6-0, Jr., G/F); Tanner Watson (5-8, Jr., G); Shaquille Cress (6-2, Jr., C) ■ Player to watch: Frank Noles Noles scored as many as 26 points in a game last year while averaging 9.0 points and 6.7 rebounds a game. ■ Outlook: The Spartans’ rebuilding continues in Year 2 of the third Scott Justus era on the West End. Forks returns four starters from a team that finished out of the playoffs for the third time in four years. That includes Noles and 6-3 forward Brady Castellano (6.9 points per game). “We’ve got a lot to prove and a long ways to go,” Justus said. “I used the word potential a lot last year because I feel that these kids are so athletic and they have so much potential. It just never seemed to come out last year.” Things will be even tougher for Forks this season with former 2A’s Elma and Hoquiam back in the Evergreen mix. Forks likely must finish in the top four to reach the postseason. “I do expect to finish in the top four, but I always expect to be there,” Justus said. “We have trouble scoring the basketball, though. “We’re going to have to have three or four guys step up. It won’t be the same guy every night. We just don’t have that go-to guy.” Matt Schubert
Preps: PA wins Continued from B1 Port Angeles (1-0 in league and overall) made just 13 of 59 field goal attempts, including just 4 of 23 from 3-point range. Yet an edge on rebounds (40-28) and turnovers (2516) was enough to extend the Riders’ Olympic League win streak to 22 games. (The last loss came to Kingston in January 2009.) The absence of Buccaneers (0-1, 0-2) star Sophia Baetz — the All-Olympic League player tore a ligament in her knee this summer — didn’t hurt things either. “We had a lot of open shots, and we just didn’t capitalize on them,” Mike Knowles said. Jeffers led the Riders with 12 rebounds and also scored five points. Sophomore Mariah Frazier added eight points and nine rebounds, while junior Kiah Jones had seven points and six rebounds.

He was Chimacum’s leading scorer last year at 12.1 points per game and 2.4 steals. ■ Outlook: Chimacum started the long trek back to respectability after following up a winless 08-09 campaign with four wins. Now in head coach Jim Eldridge’ second year the Cowboys are looking to compete for one of the 1A Nisqually League’s five postseason berths. Chimacum returns all five starters from a year ago and all but two players from the entire roster.

Shot: Stepping up to the line Continued from B1 With kids so focused on either shooting from distance or driving to the hoop, the 12- and 15-foot jumper has fallen into the margins. Players spend much of their formative years (fifth through eighth grades) hoisting shots from deep. As a result, they develop bad habits with their technique that negatively affect anything shot inside that range. “I really believe that keeping kids within their range has a huge effect on their technique,” said Hill, who wrote his thesis on the art of the jump shot. “I would never let [my son] Evan shoot the ball outside of 15 feet until he was an eighth-grader. By the time he got to high school [he could shoot well behind the line].” That being said, Hill conceded, “Nick Camporini wanted to shoot nothing but 3s [when he was younger].

Maybe then it would change. It seemed to have worked with the outside shot. “Kids shoot the ball at distance far better than they used to,” said Hill, who played when teams relied on hitting the 12- and 15footer. “Just in our scrimmage the other night we had eight different kids who hit a 3. “That would have been unheard of 30 years ago.”

Tech-nically dominant UW romps in 108-79 home win
The Huskies closed the first half with an 8-0 run, including a lay-in and dunk by Bryan-Amaning. Holiday nearly broke his career high of 18 by that point, after scoring 13 points — including three 3-pointers — to give the Huskies a 14-8 lead in the first 4 minutes. The Huskies, used a 19-6 run midway through the first half to lead 43-27 after Texas Tech had cut the lead to 24-21 on Roberson’s five straight points. “I think they are better than they were last year,” Texas Tech coach Pat Knight said. “They pass the ball a lot better. “Last year they relied on a couple of guys more than they do this year. I mean they have five guys out on the floor who are a threat. Especially, deep threats.”
The Associated Press
SEATTLE— Justin Holiday had just the kind of game his coach knew he could. The senior had 17 of his career-high 20 points in the first half to lead No. 23 Washington past Texas Tech 10879 on Saturday. “He had a phenomenal game,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. “He’s a stat-sheet stuffer. He had 17 in the first half. “Good players can score or good players can defend. The great players can do both. He did a great job.” Matthew Bryan-Amaning added 18 points, Isaiah Thomas had 16 and C.J. Wilcox scored 11 for Washington (5-2), which won its second consecutive game after two losses to Top 25 teams Kentucky and Michigan State at the Maui Invitational. Holiday hit a career-high four 3-pointers and finished with nine rebounds. “I felt normal,” Holiday said. “A lot of my shots were open so I didn’t have to force them. “And every time I shot I didn’t really think about it.”
No. 20 Illinois 73, Gonzaga 61 The Associated Press
Washington’s Terrence Ross goes to the basket late in the second half against Texas Tech during Saturday’s game in Seattle. Brad Reese scored 19 while John Roberson and David Tairu had 14 apiece to lead Texas Tech (5-4), which has lost three of its last four games. The Huskies led 61-42 at halftime before the Red Raiders scored seven in a
row to get within 75-62 with 12:28 left. Bryan-Amaning responded with two free throws and two dunks to push the lead to 19 and help the Huskies cruise to their 24th straight non-conference home win.
SEATTLE — Demetri McCamey finished with 11 points and seven assists and Illinois was blistering from beyond the arc in a defeat of Gonzaga on Saturday. Mike Tisdale hit a pair of 3-pointers early in the second half to extend a 34-28 lead, and the Illini (8-1) went on a 14-3 run to take a 62-44 advantage. Ten of Illinois’ first 11 baskets in the second half came from beyond the 3-point line.
Apple Continued from B1 When the desperation throw of Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel fell into the arms of Washington safety Nate Fellner on the final play, those same fans rushed the turf to celebrate the Huskies’ first bowl trip since 2002. But they did have to dodge snowballs and water bottles flying from the angry Washington State student section in an ugly scene that nearly got out of control. They’ll find out today where they are headed. The likely destinations: either San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl, or the Holiday Bowl in San Diego. “I don’t really have words to explain how I feel right now,” Locker said. “I’m just so proud to be a part of this team, part of this program.” Two years ago, Washington (6-6, 5-4 Pac-10) walked out of this same stadium a program plummeting downward, on its way to an 0-12 season and wholesale changes. It was the bottom of a six-year run when the Huskies won just 18 games. So while the celebration may seem over the top for a team that won its final three games to finish 6-6, just getting to that point is a milestone for Washington. Of BCS conference teams, only Baylor and Duke had longer droughts without a bowl game than the Huskies, whose last postseason appearance came in 2002 with a trip to the Sun Bowl. “This has been four or five years in the making for a few of us,” Washington safety Nate Williams said. “It means a lot to us.” Locker’s touchdown throw to Kearse made up for two costly turnovers earlier by the quarterback, when the Huskies were bound for points that would have made this victory far more comfortable. And Locker was helped along by the second-best rushing day in Washington history from Chris Polk.

Lose this and season’s over Seahawks host NFL’s worst in must-win game IF LAST WEEK’S game against Kansas City was a must win for the Seattle Seachickens, then today’s game at home against 1-10 Carolina is a must, must, must win. After all, if you Brad can’t beat LaBrie the worst team in football at home, then it’s time to hang up the old cleats and go fishing. Or maybe you should stay home and knit. Evidently, the Seachickens didn’t get the message about the must win last week. The pregame memo to the Seachickens must have read: Go ahead, take this Sunday off. Don’t worry your little heads off about tackling fundamentals. Let’s see who can have the most missed tackles this game. The very young Chiefs, these same Chiefs who have been struggling for several years, came rolling into Seattle and stomped Seattle into submission by a 42-24 score. Seattle gave up 503 total yards, 270 on the ground. That’s a lot of missed tackles. And it’s also the defensive stats of a very bad college team. The Seachickens are a mediocre 3-2 at home (both blowout losses) and now face the reeling Panthers. The one-win, can’t-do-anything-right Panthers. Let’s hope Carolina has an off game to give our Seachickens a fighting chance.

Washington wide receiver Jermaine Kearse (15) catches the game-winning touchdown pass over Washington State’s Nolan Washington (29) in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game in Pullman. Sixty years after Hugh McElhenny ran for a schoolrecord 296 yards against the Cougars, Polk nearly topped it. The sophomore ran for 284 yards and two touchdowns, including a 57-yard dash early in the fourth quarter that gave the Huskies a 28-14 lead. Running powerfully and breaking tackles all night, Polk had seven runs of 10 yards or more. His 36-yarder on the Huskies’ final drive put Washington into scoring position. Later in the drive, after Washington coach Steve Sarkisian initially sent out kicker Erik Folk for a 49-yard field goal attempt, Polk raced for 15 yards on fourth-and-1 on the same play he scored the game-winning touchdown on the final play at California last week. Two plays later, Kearse hauled in the winning score. “I knew the ball was going to come my way,” said Kearse, who finished with six catches for 178 yards. “Jake gave me an opportunity, and I just made the best of it.”
Washington State (2-10, 1-8) didn’t make anything easy and in the process may have saved coach Paul Wulff’s job. His future has been in debate all season, but the continued competitiveness of the Cougars as the year progressed makes Wulff’s staying or going a difficult decision for athletic director Bill Moos. “I feel very comfortable, but it’s not my decision. I feel good about where we are at and what we have done,” Wulff said. “Bill and I will meet, spend time tomorrow and next day and go from there.” Tuel threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns for the Cougars and did his best to engineer a rally. Instead of rolling over, Tuel quickly led a 10-play scoring drive, capped by his 1-yard plunge on third-andgoal to get Washington State back within seven. The Cougars then held the Huskies’ offense to a three-and-out and took back possession at their 27 with 7:20 left.
Tuel went to work again. He hit Daniel Blackledge, who finished with seven catches for 132 yards, for gains of 32 and 26 yards to get inside the Washington 20. Tuel then hit Marquis Wilson on a 16-yard slant to tie the score at 28 all. “It was pretty emotional for everybody,” Tuel said. “I thought we played a pretty good game.” But Locker had one more chance, validating his decision to bypass the NFL a year ago and return to school. He was 14 of 22 for 226 yards and threw a 66-yard touchdown to Kearse on the third play of the second half. Locker ran for a 7-yard TD run in the first half, but also threw an interception in the end zone and fumbled at the Cougars 1 on the first play of the fourth quarter. “The moment Jake decided to come back, I’m assuming that this is what he was envisioning,” Sarkisian said. “This moment is why he came back.”
Wrestling: Forks 3rd at Invite finish in fourth place ahead of the fifth place Tenino. “We are still pretty young,” Sequim coach Len Borchers said. The Wolves finished with one individual champion at the tournament along with four runner-ups and two third-place finishes. Clay Charlie stood out for his team as the 285-pound heavyweight champion.

Going mobile with Home Fund help EDITOR’S NOTE — For 21 years, Peninsula Daily News readers in Jefferson and Clallam counties have supported the “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund. Today we feature another in a series of articles on how the Home Fund operates and who benefits from our readers’ generosity. The next article will appear Wednesday. By Tim Hockett

PORT ANGELES — Despite serious setbacks, Tom Parker says life has been good to him. And living in Port Angeles, he adds, is like frosting on the cake. “I’ve had a great life, and I’ve been able to travel around the world twice on my own dime. “And now look where I live!” He points to little Peabody Creek that runs right beside his home. He is so enthusiastic about his life here that he’d be well-suited as a spokesman for the local Chamber of Commerce. But Tom has had his share of hardships. “I was raised on a working farm, and my folks had a grocery store,” he says. “I grew up working hard. I retired the first time in 1977 in the wake of the Alaska pipeline boom. “And life was great — until my first wife became ill and eventually died of cancer in 1989.” Tom remarried, and life was moving along again when, just two years later, he and his wife were in a terrible auto accident. “We were broadsided by a dump truck,” he says. “Both my feet were crushed and broken all up. “My wife was even more seriously injured, and I found myself needing to quickly overcome my situation to care for her.”
Intense pain But she later died, and, while dealing with that loss, Tom was found to have suffered considerable untreated nerve damage from the accident. “I had put myself on the back burner to care for her — the pain I was experiencing just to stand up was getting worse and worse,” he recalls. “It was like I was being shot in my feet every time I tried to walk, tried to stand up or tried to take a shower.” Part of Tom’s plan for retirement was to have a fifth-wheel trailer where he could live and also be mobile as well as self-contained. “I thought, with my set of skills, I could be a caretaker of

As his mobility decreased and his pain increased, Tom found himself needing more pain medications, which, he readily acknowledges, was not a good thing. There were days when he was in constant pain. He knew he needed a solution that could get him off his feet.

Keep birds fed with winter feeder tips ONCE THE WIND began backing off, upward of 200 robins were flying over the neighborhood. They were an example of birds coping with the Thanksgiving week storm that Mother Nature threw at us. Group after group passed overhead almost nonstop. They had been feeding on the berries of the madrona trees that grow along the beach. The tree behind our house had been loaded with berries, and the robins attacked it, too. Robins have been everywhere, and any tree with berries still on it will soon be stripped. Winter is officially weeks away, and if that early storm was an example of what is ahead, the birds will be facing some challenges this month and in January. We can’t assume the entire responsibility for them, but sometimes, that’s the way we feel. We can make their lives a little easier, but the weaker ones and the sick birds won’t survive. Many people faithfully feed the birds in their

When it is scattered over a broader area, more birds can feed without contaminating the seed. Our carport and patio become a mess, but they offer a good supply of exposed bird seed. The lard-oatmeal mix is the most popular food in
the feeders, so it pays to have a good supply mixed up. Commercial bird cakes made with suet, seed and dried fruit are quick and easy when supply can’t keep up with demand, but they usually end up being eaten last if you have been using the lard-oatmeal mix. It may seem early to be concerned about winter
feeding, but November’s early storm was a reminder to be prepared. Once that is under control, holiday preparations can move ahead.

Deck your home with holiday lights NOW THAT WE have crossed the line into December, a cloak of darkness descends upon our wonderful Olympic Peninsula due to our very northern position of latitude. In fact, you may have noticed, even at 2 o’clock in the afternoon with a thick cloud cover overhead, we plunge into a twilight effect. And it is precisely the fact that we do darkness so well that I will take today’s column space to write about holiday light displays, or as I prefer to say, light sculptures. And it truly is the sculpture and art of holiday lights that causes this form of landscaping to be one of my personal favorites. The art is in figuring out how to use the hardscape of your yard to its full advantage under the illumination you conspire to create. Botanical gardens around the country have taken full advantage of this art form. Hang amber lights on your yellow pfitzers, drape blue lights on your blue juniper, or undercoat the holly tree with green, then add red lights for the berry effect. Trim your windows, drape
A growing concern the large rock and let the icicle lights cover every eave and window dormer of your house or business. We have all heard of how the darkness of winter can be depressing, how the absence of the sun affects many people’s moods. But the opposite is true, as well. Festive lighting uplifts people’s spirits. We all can hearken back to our childhood — remembering being loaded into the car on Christmas Eve to go out and view the lights and recall the magical moments we felt as a child on those lighted tours. So before I pass onto you the professional secrets that make light sculptures a breeze, let me first beg, even plead, with each of you to put at least one or two strands around your picture window or bedazzle at least one tree in your front yard.
OK, with that said, first up is preparation. Art flows if it is fun, easy and has a rhythm, so preparation is essential. First, get your lights gathered and bought. Then, in the warm, dry comforts of the indoors, unpack them. Get them out of the boxes and untie them from the packages that they all come in. Cut off the labels, test them to see if they work and pack them in boxes that can be easily grabbed — that way, when you are outside on a ladder in the dark on the roof or in a tree, all the lights are ready, untied, unknotted and easily strung up. This is the No. 1 trick. Ease and flow equals creativity. Next is electricity, and here the name of the game is different circuits. Different circuits, not different outlets. Different outlets can all be the same circuit, and most homeowners overload the power source — different bedroom windows are generally on separate circuits. Cut a thin board to place in the bottom of the windowsill with a hole drilled in it for the cord to
go through and insulate. Get special plugs that screw into porch and other outside lighting fixtures and even more outlets on different circuit breakers. You do not want these lights shining where you are stringing lights, and that porch bulb only serves as light pollution, making your display less brilliant. Always use the shortest cords possible, and use the biggest gauge cord you can get. Cords of 16 gauge are a minimum. I prefer 12- and 10-gauge extension cords, which limit heat overload and hence fire probability. Never, ever plug more than six strands of 100 lights if they are not LED — and not more than 10 of those together. Always, when possible, plug those strands in end-to-end because you want, at all costs, to avoid tall columns of lights in plug on top of plug. This rack system is the No. 2 cause of homeowner failure in light sculptures. You can never have enough lights, so get more and double string your lights, placing the second string around the first —
but have that second string plugged into a separate end-toend line. That way, if one section goes out, it will not create a hole in the display because you have now taken care of that potential and predictable problem. And the way to do that is to buy multiheaded outlet plugs that you put at the end of your (short as possible) heavy-duty outside extension cords. And finally, and perhaps most important, let those displays burn late into the night (past 10 p.m. or preferably throughout the night). Do not deny those people who work the graveyard shift, earlymorning tourist arrivals or latenight truck deliverers to miss out on seeing your awesome creation. ’Tis the season, so please illuminate our dark, black and long evenings.

No need to save dignity of vain star DEAR ABBY: We are a group of ladies in retirement in a smallish town. One member of our group has, over the last few years, started to “put on a show” — and I mean that literally. “Dottie” writes revues and, of course, stars in them herself. While there’s nothing wrong with a vanity production, this woman is making herself look foolish. She is not slender (no sin), but she is also not talented. Dottie’s friends feel she looks ridiculous singing and dancing, but no one has the nerve to tell her because she is vain and has a short temper. We can’t tell our pudgy, grayhaired friend to get off the stage, so we thought you might be just the person to save our friend’s dignity. Can you help? In the Wings in Northern California

Dear Already Blessed: I say you and Kim are both right. The custom of saying “Bless you” or “God bless you” after someone sneezes did originate in the Middle Ages, when it was believed that when people sneezed, their souls left their bodies for an instant — and saying “God bless you” would prevent the devil from snatching it. And Kim is correct that the Dear Abby: My girlfriend, polite thing to do is to say it. “Kim,” believes that saying “Bless If you care about her feelings, you” after someone sneezes is a you will accommodate her — not
just because it’s good manners, but because you know it’ll make her happy. Dear Abby: I have a 3-yearold, muscular male American pit bull terrier. When I walk “Petey,” I am often asked by young and old alike if they can pet my dog because of his good looks. While Petey has never bitten anyone, I am not comfortable letting strangers pet him. The breed can be aggressive. I always reply to these requests with a “no” and a “thank you,” after which I am invariably asked if my dog is mean. Now, if there is a possibility that a dog is mean, why would someone ask to pet him in the first place?
Perhaps I’m overly sensitive, but it’s an annoying rhetorical question. Is there a nicer way to answer? A Dutiful Pet Owner in Glens Falls, N.Y. Dear Dutiful Pet Owner: An honest response would be that your dog isn’t mean, but you can’t guarantee that he won’t snap if someone he doesn’t know touches him. Another way to say it would be, “My dog hasn’t bitten anyone . . . yet.”

Puerto Rico mulls its future status By Ben Fox
The Associated Press
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Dayra Rivera saw the letter as a slap in the face for Puerto Ricans. No, Apple Inc. told her over the summer, you can’t have the free iPhone case promised to U.S. customers. Apple, which was giving out plastic cases because of problems with dropped calls, said it wouldn’t ship to an “international” destination. Never mind that Puerto Rico’s 4 million residents are American citizens and that it is closer to the mainland than Hawaii. “I felt like I was being treated like a second-class citizen,” said Rivera, a 46-year-old manager of a clothing store near the capital, San Juan. Apple, as it turns out, is hardly alone in considering the island 1,000 miles southeast of Florida a foreign land. Other businesses, politicians, entertainers and even Puerto Ricans themselves are not quite sure what to make of a place where highway distances are in kilometers but road speeds in miles per hour. Puerto Rico and the United States are like one of those couples who have been together forever without getting married, forcing people to make awkward introductions at weddings like “and . . . this is her special friend.” Perhaps comedian Larry David captured the confusion most bluntly on the TV program “Curb Your Enthusiasm” as he riffed on America’s boundaries, asking: What is Puerto Rico anyway? It’s a question the island asks itself all the time. For now, at least, the most Puerto Rican thing about Puerto Rico could be its identity issues. Puerto Ricans can’t decide whether they want to go for statehood, have some sort of in-between commitment or break up altogether. They have voted on the issue three times to date, in 1967, 1993 and 1998, and each time decided to keep the status quo. The issue may come up again in 2011. The pro-statehood movement, which now controls the legislature and the governor’s office, hopes to hold another vote. And the U.S. House has
The Associated Press
Puerto Rico’s new ad campaign, “Puerto Rico Does It Better,” is displayed in New York’s Times Square on Tuesday. passed a bill that would allow Puerto Rico’s government to ask its residents if they want to change the island’s commonwealth status. But most exasperating of all is that, even as Puerto Rico is preoccupied with its status, much of the United States hardly seems to know or care. Several months ago, House candidate Vaughn Ward, a Republican from Idaho, called Puerto Rico a “country” in a political debate. When corrected, he said, “I really don’t care what it is. It doesn’t matter.” For the record, Puerto Rico has been under U.S. jurisdiction — some would say boot heel — since 1898 and its people citizens since 1917. The island is home to 150,000 military veterans,
and three-quarters of its National Guard troops have been deployed overseas since the Sept. 11 attacks. The island shuts down and shoots off fireworks on the Fourth of July. Yet Puerto Ricans can’t vote for president, and their representative in Congress can’t vote either. They pay Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes but not federal income tax (they pay Puerto Rican income tax instead, so it’s no paradise.) And The Associated Press considers its reporters in Puerto Rico foreign correspondents. Both Spanish and English are the official languages, though you will hear much more of the former than the latter. The island has a holiday in honor of Eugenio Maria de Hostos, a figure associ-
ated with Puerto Rican independence. It puts up its own Miss Universe contestant and its own Olympic team. Confused? So is Congress. Members of the U.S. Congress have wondered if they need passports to travel to Puerto Rico, according to an oft-told anecdote by New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, the son of Cuban immigrants. And Joachim de Posada, an author and business consultant who lives in Puerto Rico, gets the passport question all the time, most recently in Germany. (Answer: U.S. citizens don’t need passports.) “It is amazing the level of ignorance I find, not only in the U.S. but all around the world,” de Posada said. There are other U.S. territories, such as Guam and

unfounded. Still, the bloggers had an impact. The bishop who oversees the anti-poverty grants said that a few, but not all, of the accused grantees had indeed taken positions contrary to church teaching and had been defunded. Since the controversy erupted, 10 of the 195 U.S. dioceses have suspended or dropped annual parish collections for the program, and the bishops are reviewing their grant policies.
‘Lack of civility’ In August, O’Malley blocked access from archdiocesan headquarters to one of the critical blogs, the anonymously penned Boston Catholic Insider. “The lack of civility is very disturbing,” said Terrence C. Donilon, the archdiocesan spokesman. The work of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is another frequent target. Activists and bloggers, including Bellarmine Veritas Ministry of Texas, have been investigating the bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development, a national grantmaking program created in the 1970s to support community organizing and economic development. The activists concluded that some of the grantees back same-sex marriage, artificial contraception or legalized abortion. As part of the push, activists accused the director of the bishops’ national social justice office of serving on the board of a nonprofit while it advocated for gay marriage and abortion. The claims against him were shown to be

summit of Spanish-speaking countries. “You’ve got your fast food, your Costco, the mall. It’s definitely very American,” said 32-year-old Adriana Pons, who was born on the island but moved back from New York to help out in her family’s water-bottling business. “But it’s very hard to categorize. It’s neither here nor there.” Which comes back around to the question of whether Puerto Ricans can get free iPhone cases. A number of companies don’t ship to Puerto Rico to avoid conflicts over exclusive distribution agreements that some manufacturers have in the island. Others won’t ship because it’s too expensive — often more than twice what it costs with the major shipping companies to a mainland U.S. destination. Sometimes, there are also issues with warranties that might not be applicable in Puerto Rico. At least one company, www.buyonlineshiptopr. com, allows people to work around it by having their goods shipped to Miami, then sent by U.S. Postal Service. Primo Delgado, the marketing director, said they have worked with most of the major online retailers since opening in April. Even if Puerto Rico became a state, he said, it would face the same issues, and shipping would still be a problem. But Rivera sees it as injustice all the same. She fired off a note to popular consumer rights advocacy blog Consumerist. com, which publicized her cause, as did several other online forums. “A lot of people were really upset over this situation,” she said. “They weren’t treating Puerto Rico right.” Rivera said she generally stays out of the status debate, but the iPhone saga has pushed her toward statehood. “I want Puerto Rico to be a state so this situation gets fixed,” she said. She may not have to wait. An Apple spokeswoman said the cancellation of Rivera’s iPhone had been a mistake, though she wouldn’t say why or how it was made. And in August, Rivera got a follow-up: another e-mail that her case was en route. This time, the e-mail was in Spanish.

NEW YORK — Pressure is on to change the Roman Catholic Church in America, but it’s not coming from the usual liberal suspects. A new breed of theological conservatives has taken to blogs and YouTube to say the church isn’t Catholic enough. Enraged by dissent that they believe has gone unchecked for decades and unafraid to say so in the starkest language, these activists are naming names and unsettling the church. n In the Archdiocese of Boston, parishioners are dissecting the work of a top adviser to the cardinal for any hint of Marxist influence. n Bloggers are combing through campaign finance records to expose staff of Catholic agencies who donate to politicians who support elective abortion. n RealCatholicTV.com, working from studios in suburban Detroit, is hunting for “traitorous” nuns, priests or bishops throughout the American church. “We’re no more engaged in a witch hunt than a doctor excising a cancer is engaged in a witch hunt,” said Michael Voris of Real CatholicTV.com and St. Michael’s Media. “We’re just shining a spotlight on people who are Catholics who do not live the faith.” John Allen, Vatican analyst for the National Catholic Reporter, has dubbed
this trend “Taliban Catholicism.” But he said it’s not a strictly conservative phenomenon — liberals can fit the mindset, too, Allen said. Some left-leaning Catholics are outraged by any exercise of church authority. Yet, on the Internet and in the church, conservatives are having the bigger impact. Among Voris’ many media ventures is the CIA — the Catholic Investigative Agency — a program from RealCatholicTV to “bring to light the dark deeds of evil Catholics-inname-only, who are hijacking the Church for their own ends, not the ends of Christ.” In an episode called “Catholic Tea Party,” Voris said: “Catholics need to be aware and studied and knowledgeable enough about the faith to recognize a heretical nun or a traitorous priest or bishop when they see one — not so they can vote them out of office, but so they can pray for them, one, and alert as many other Catholics as possible to their treachery, two.” The blog “Bryan Hehir Exposed” is aimed at a top adviser to Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the Rev. J. Bryan Hehir, who is the former head of national Catholic Charities and a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Among the bloggers’ claims is that Hehir is a
Marxist sympathizer who undermines Catholic teaching on abortion and marriage. Hehir, who has advised church leaders for four decades, hasn’t responded to any accusations and neither has O’Malley, a Capuchin Franciscan friar known for his humility. However, O’Malley said in April on his own blog that Hehir “inspires us with his compassion, vision and fidelity to the work of the Church.”
the U.S. Virgin Islands, but none has near the population of Puerto Rico and the huge cultural impact on the mainland that comes with it. The question of what exactly the island is lingers even among Puerto Ricans in the United States, who outnumber those in Puerto Rico. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has called her parents immigrants, but they’re not from another country — they’re from Puerto Rico. Sotomayor herself in recent years has been careful not to come down publicly on one side or the other of the statehood issue. Not so resident commissioner Pedro Pierluisi, the nonvoting representative in Congress. “The question about the statehood for Puerto Rico is not whether it’s going to happen; it’s when,” he said. “I have no doubt that’s where we’re headed.” Pierluisi said that the growing Hispanic population in the United States will compel Congress to support statehood if islanders demand it. Hector Pesquera, cochairman of the National Hostos Independence Movement, has a very different take. To him, Puerto Rico would be obliterated by statehood. “People who vote in favor of statehood are like chickens voting for Kentucky Fried Chicken,” he said. The rest of the world is similarly all over the place in its dealings with Puerto Rico. The island has its own ranking on World Economic Forum’s annual ranking of global competitiveness — coming in at No. 41, between Cyprus and Spain. The U.S. is ranked No. 4. Puerto Rico also got its own ranking in a Gallup World Poll published in July of the happiest countries (No. 23) and its own spot on Transparency International’s annual list of corruption perceptions, coming in at 33rd least corrupt (the U.S. was 22nd). And technically it is a commonwealth, which means it has some political and economic autonomy. But Puerto Rico doesn’t make the Forbes list of best countries to do business. It doesn’t have its own seat at the United Nations, and it’s not invited to the annual Ibero-American

Pilot program expands organ recovery At-home deaths are new focus By Samantha Gross The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Families choosing whether to donate a loved one’s organs usually have days to grapple with their decision, all while the patient lies hooked up to machines in a hospital bed. But they would have only about 20 minutes to make the choice in a new pilot program meant to recover organs from patients who die at home. That’s roughly how long a team of organ specialists will have after a cardiacarrest patient is declared dead to arrive at the home, check a donor registry, determine medical eligibility, obtain a family member’s consent and get the person into a specialized ambulance.
Wednesday launch The program launching Wednesday — the first of its kind in the U.S., according to organizers and other experts — could eventually lead to thousands more organs donated each year nationwide. But the six-month trial, a collaboration between Bellevue Hospital and New York City’s police and fire departments, could be declared a success without a single organ being recovered, organizers say. Instead, what’s being tested is the ability of the team — composed of two EMTs, an organ donor family services specialist and a Bellevue emergency physi-

A police detective will arrive at the scene before the team to make sure there’s nothing about the death that warrants a criminal investigation.
Could be ‘revolutionary’ The project is “very, very modest but has the potential to prove a concept that could be revolutionary,” said Dr. Lewis Goldfrank, director of emergency services at Bellevue Hospital Center and the leader of the pilot,
which is being funded with a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health Resources and Services Administration. Of the roughly 50,000 people who died last year in downstate New York-area hospitals, about 600 were judged eligible to donate their organs. Of those, only 261 became donors, said Elaine Berg, the president and CEO of the New York Organ Donation Network. The small number is due in part to policies preventing the vast majority of people who die of cardiac arrest from becoming donors, said Goldfrank, who estimated that each year

50 minutes Once there, they must determine whether the person is a registered organ donor and whether the person has any medical conditions — such as cancer or AIDS — that would eliminate them as candidates. And they must get the permission of family in a matter of minutes. The pilot program team has been told they have 50
minutes from the time a person’s heart stops beating to the time his or her body must be placed in the ambulance and hooked up to a machine that creates blood circulation. Once at Bellevue, another machine will increase body oxygen. Only residents of Man-
hattan who are between 18 and 59 will be eligible for the pilot program. Similar programs are already in place in France and Spain, where there are fewer barriers because people in those countries are considered organ donors unless they opt out, Goldfrank said.

ea Rose Beil passed away on November 18, 2010, at her home in Port Angeles with family members by her side. Tea Rose was born in Union City, New Jersey on October 10, 1923, to Felix and Linda Garzone, who had immigrated to the United States from Biella, Italy. She had one brother, Raymond, who preceded her in death. The highlight of her life was when she met Leonard W. Beil on September 11, 1943, while Leonard was stationed at City College of New York as a member of the U.S. Army Specialized Training Program. Tea Rose and Leonard were married in Union City, New Jersey, on February 26, 1944, just before Leonard’s 75th Army Division was assigned to combat duty in Europe. After Leonard’s discharge from the Army in 1945 they moved to Pullman, Wash., where Tea Rose worked to assist Leonard as he completed his degrees in agriculture and education at Washington State College. In her quiet, behind-the-scenes manner, Tea’s strongest desire in life was to support Leonard in his work in education and community service activities and give positive support to all parts of her five children’s endeavors and later her seventeen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She was a 62-year member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit in Sequim and Port Angeles. Tea Rose was a member of the Sequim Prairie Grange for 62 years. She attended St. Joseph Catholic Church in Sequim and Queen of Angels in Port Angeles. From 1948 to 1965, Tea Rose took a vital role with Sequim High School student activities as Leonard served as Vocational Agriculture Instructor and principal of Sequim High School. Tea Rose helped chaperone over a hundred Sequim High School dances and sold tickets and ran concession stands for athletic events. She especially enjoyed being invited to Sequim High School class reunions. Even at forty-year class reunions, Sequim graduates would fondly recall Tea’s close involvement in many of their activities. Many recalled the times spent at her family home in Sequim as guests before athletic events. Tea Rose was honored by having the Port Angeles coffee shop, Bella Rosa, named after her. When her daughter, Linda, opened it in 2001, she chose the name using the town her parents were from in Italy along with her middle name. The joy of her life was being at home to raise her five children. She was endlessly proud and supportive of her children. She took much pride in watching her family grow and get married: Leonard D. Beil and Stella Ley, Ron and Kathy Beil, Gary and Pam Beil, Linda and Kevin Berglund, and Susan and Eric Rogstad. The grandchildren and great-grandchildren were treasured and loved by Tea Rose. This humble woman never bragged about herself, but constantly about her husband and family. She had no titles other than wife, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother and friend. She had no formal degrees or awards but was a powerful force as she led by example and love. She made everybody feel special and like they were the center of the universe. She exemplified unconditional love and acceptance. Tea Rose will be missed by all those who were blessed to be a part of her life.

350,000 to 450,000 people in the U.S. suffer cardiac arrest outside of a hospital, with most dying. Only kidneys will be recovered in the pilot program. Last year, more than 4,650 people in the U.S. died while awaiting a kidney — accounting for 70 percent of deaths on the transplant list, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing. As an ethical measure, EMTs attempting to revive a person and the doctor who ultimately makes the decision to declare a person dead won’t know whether the patient is a registered organ donor and whether he or she is considered a candidate for the pilot program. Team members will be sent to the scene in a specialized organ preservation vehicle but will only enter the home after a person has been declared dead.

Neah Bay adds sign, revamps its website Peninsula Daily News
NEAH BAY — A new sign welcoming visitors and providing information about town services in Neah Bay is the most visible result of a $76,100 U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Business Enterprise grant awarded to the Neah Bay Chamber of Commerce. The new sign features places to eat and drink; places to stay; places to shop; places to visit; Wi-Fi and ATM locations and other services available in Neah Bay, center of the Makah tribal reservation. “The day that the sign was installed, local businesses were fielding phone calls from visitors requesting information — the benefits were realized immediately,” said Meredith Parker, president of the Neah Bay chamber. “Our community was in need of additional ways to inform and educate our visitors, and the USDA grant provided the means for the chamber to achieve its goals.” The chamber worked with OlySigns of Port Angeles to create the sign on the state Highway 112 extension. The grant also helped pay for the creation of a media outreach plan by Deborah Black of Anastasi Black Public Relations. This included coordinated media releases and ads in Puget Sound publications and radio stations plus brochures created by Lora Messinger and distributed by the Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau. The grant also provided for a complete revamp of the chamber’s website, www.neahbaywa.com. The website was completed by Laurel Black of Laurel Black Design and developed by John Gussman of Double-click Productions. Content for the website was produced by Parker. The creation of the new sign was done in a way unique to Neah Bay. The base color of the sign and brochures was inspired by the color of cedar bark used by Makah weavers in making baskets, hats and clothing.
The website emphasizes red and black, colors that have been used by the Makah for eons — in artwork as old as that excavated from the Ozette archaeological site (those artists used red ochre and charcoal) and seen in the traditional regalia worn during the annual Makah Days celebrations and at tribal potlatches. Greg Colfax, a master woodcarver, owner of the Apocalypto Motel and Linda’s Wood-fired Kitchen and a member of the Neah Bay chamber, provided the outline for the canoe that tops the welcome sign. “This signifies that our Neah Bay and surrounding areas of businesses, entrepreneurs, tribal government and locals are all pulling in the same canoe to attain the community’s collective success,” Parker said.
Inspired by Makah traditions Janine Bowechop, director of the Makah Cultural and Research Center, added: “Our tribe has always been known for how we treat our visitors, and this project is in keeping with that tradition.” The chamber collaborated with the center to ensure that the sign’s design elements and imagery were in keeping with Makah style. Parker said the chamber’s membership includes 71 percent of all businesses in Neah Bay and the surrounding area and includes home-based businesses and supportive individuals. “Since its inception, the Neah Bay Chamber of Commerce has hit the ground running,” said Diane Schostack, executive director of the Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau. “They have joined with the Olympic Peninsula Tourism Bureau, secured grants for marketing and visitor services and have united and focused the business community in Neah Bay in new and dynamic ways.”

More to give?
OLYMPIA — Gov. Chris Gregoire told state workers for months that they’d have to pay a bigger share of health-care costs — equal to 26 percent of their health-insurance premiums — because of a looming multibilliondollar budget shortfall. That all changed when Gregoire’s office agreed late last week week to have workers pay 15 percent of health-care premium costs, with the state picking up the other 85 percent in the next twoyear budget. The state currently pays 88 percent of the premium, and state workers pay 12 percent. Under the tentative agreement, subject to funding by the Legislature, the increase in the workers’ share of the premium in 2012 would result in about a $27-a-month increase in costs for the average employee that year, according to the governor’s office. There would be no increase in out-of-pocket costs for workers in the Uniform Medical Plan, which
Welch noted workers haven’t received cost-of-living increases for a couple of years, the Legislature made changes to health benefits last year that forced higher co-pays and deductibles, employees have been laid off — and many have had their pay cut through furloughs. There’s likely more to come, given that the state faces a $1.1 billion shortfall in the current fiscal year, which ends in June, and a $5.7 billion gap in the next budget cycle. “The other shoe hasn’t dropped — next week, we expect the governor to come to the table with proposals for wage cutbacks,” Welch said Friday. “When you put it all together in a package, the health-care settlement we got is reasonable.” State Sen. Joe Zarelli, the ranking Republican on the Senate Ways and Means Committee, feels differently.

Chris Gregoire, state workers will pay $27 more monthly on average for health insurance next year. covers more than half of state workers. “Considering where we started in August, where they wanted our members to go from 12 percent to a 26 percent share of premiums, it was a substantial movement,” said Tim Welch, a spokesman for

Boats trailered in driveways targets This is the time of year when most recreational boaters — except diehard winter crabbers and hearty wind sailors — have their boats out of the water and stowed away for the season. Some have their pride and joy in storage facilities, but most have their boat on a trailer sitting in their driveway or side yard. Boats stored over the winter become easy targets for thieves. And many boat owners don’t discover that they’ve been a victim of theft until springtime when it’s time to make preparations to put the boat back into the water. According to BoatUS Marine Insurance, the three most common items stolen from stowed boats are electronics, outboard motors and outdrives. To avoid a theft of your boat’s electronics, it is well worth your time and effort to remove the gear and store it in your home. If they are permanently installed, make sure to have a record of ownership information, including the model and serial numbers. It is also a good idea to have photographs of your onboard electronics. Small outboard motors should be removed and stored in a locked garage or other secure structure. Larger outboard motors should have a lock installed. It is recommended that outdrives be removed and stowed in a secure location after having recorded the unit’s serial number. The next best defense against a theft would be to install an outdrive lock, BoatUS says. Some more tips: ■ When storing a boat and trailer at your residence, don’t leave the trailer tongue facing the street. Additionally, block the trailer, and remove the tires and store them in the garage. At the very least, wheel locks should be installed as well as a lock on the hitch receiver. ■ If you are looking to sell your boat in favor of a new craft for next season, do not leave a “For Sale” posted on it all winter. It has the potential of attracting the wrong kind of attention and gives nefarious characters an excuse to climb aboard and nose around with impunity. Adding personalized markings to equipment helps identify and recover stolen items.
On the waterfront Making your mark readily apparent is an Sellars added deterrent because it makes those items less “marketable” and less likely to be stolen. ■ Don’t forget that fourlegged “bandits,” such as raccoons and other forest critters, would enjoy the comfort and shelter of a stored boat. Ensure that winter covers are tight and remain securely attached. If at all possible don’t store your boat in a place that makes it easy for animals to get aboard, such as near trees or building overhangs. Cover large exhaust ports, and never leave a ladder leaning against the boat.

The 941-foot oil tanker Alaskan Frontier, operated by the Alaska Tanker Co., receives topside repair at the Port of Port Angeles Terminal 1 north pier Saturday.
Platypus Marine Inc., the Port Angeles boat and yacht repair company at Marine Drive and Cedar Street, has Seeya in the Commander Building. The boat’s owner brought the 36-foot Yellow Fin by trailer from his home in Portland, Ore. According to Capt. Charlie Crane, Platypus’ director of sales and marketing, the owner was particularly attracted to the company because of the reputation Verne Braghettia and the fiberglass department has garnered within the industry. Capt Charlie said the boat will be at Platypus’ facility well into March for extensive fiberglass modifications. The owner is an avid sportfisher of albacore and is reconfiguring Seeya into a go-fast fishing boat that can get him out and back for a day’s tuna fishing — a round trip of 100 to 200 miles or more. Platypus also has Ocean Cape, a 52-foot Sunnfjord that hails from Douglas, Alaska, sitting on blocks in the Commander Building. The commercial fishing vessel will be in Port Angeles until the end of the month while personnel sandblast her bottom and the
entire boat receives a new coat of paint. Dan O’Keefe, a project manager at Platypus Marine, is also the leader for Boy Scout Troop 1473 of Port Angeles. Beginning this weekend, the troop is selling Christmas trees on Marine Drive next to Action Brake and Muffler, whose owners generously donated the use of a space for the Boy Scouts’ fundraising event. This is the second year the troop has had a tree lot. The brainchild behind this fund raising event is Kim O’Keefe, Dan’s wife and project manager for the O’Keefe household. Half of the net proceeds from the sale of the trees are used to defer the costs of the troop’s activities throughout the year. The other half are posted on a prorated basis, based on hours worked, to each Scout’s individual account, which he then uses to defer the costs of attending the annual Boy Scouts’ summer camp. Dan said their goal this year is to help as many Scouts as possible to earn enough money to pay their camp expenses for next summer.

Lawmakers to discuss liquor sales Privatization unlikely but changes due By Rachel La Corte The Associated Press
OLYMPIA — Voters rejected two ballot measures last month that would have gotten Washington state out of the liquor business. Now, supporters of changing the state’s current system of selling booze are looking to try to make changes through the state Legislature. While it’s unlikely full privatization will be seriously considered by lawmakers, a few legislators plan to introduce bills on the issue again. And officials with the state Liquor Control Board say they are working with Gov. Chris Gregoire to address frustrations over the current system, short of completely removing the state from the equation. Rick Garza, deputy director of the liquor board, said the liquor board officials will be meeting with lawmakers, stakeholders and others in the coming weeks to see if there can be some agreement on possible changes. He said that November’s vote indicated two messages from voters. “I honestly believe the public said, ’I want to treat alcohol different than other commodities because it’s a product that people abuse,”’ he said.
“At the same time I think they’re looking for improved convenience.” Currently, beer and wine are sold in thousands of grocery and convenience stores, but customers can only buy hard liquor by the bottle in the 324 state and contract stores.
Session on Tuesday The state Senate Labor, Commerce & Consumer Protection Committee is holding a work session Tuesday morning to discuss what, if any, changes the Legislature should make, as lawmakers prepare to return to the state capital for the 105day legislative session that begins next month. Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, a Seattle Democrat who is chairwoman of the committee, said that while voters gave a double rebuke to complete privatization, lawmakers can’t “ignore the concerns people have about the system.” “We still need to modernize the system more, and I’m very optimistic we can do that, but I want to do it the right way,” she said. “I think there will be a lot of proposals before us and we should consider them seriously.” Last month, voters rejected two competing privatization measures. Initiative 1100 was a Costco-backed measure that would have not only abolished the current staterun system and removed the state price markup, but would have gone further by dismantling the current distribution model, allowing retailers like Costco to

It was rejected by 53 percent of voters. Initiative 1105, backed by distributors, would have kept in place state laws that protect beer and wine distributors. In addition to removing the markup, it also would have removed all additional liquor taxes. It was rejected by 65 percent of voters.
Defeated, but . . . Rep. Gary Alexander, R-Olympia, said that lawmakers shouldn’t interpret the vote results as a lack of interest in privatizing liquor sales, noting that hundreds of thousands of voters signed petitions to get the measures on the ballot. Alexander said he was going to reintroduce a prior bill he sponsored that would ultimately change the state model to that of Oregon’s, where all liquor stores are private stores that contract with the state.
About 800 union jobs exist at the state’s more than 160 state stores, and Alexander said that the costs of those jobs should be shouldered by the private sector. “To me, government should be a supportive function that takes care of the responsibilities the private sector cannot do,” he said. Earlier this year, the Legislature directed the state Liquor Control Board to prepare a plan to convert at least 20 state liquor stores to contract stores between July 1, 2011, and July 1, 2013, and to assess the cost benefit. However, in a recent report to the Legislature, the liquor board said it does not recommend implementing the plan and that other options should be explored. “The concern we have is not about the concept of conversion, but rather the financial viability,” said the state Liquor Control Board’s director of business enterprise, Pat McLaughlin. He said that the main concern is that they wouldn’t
be able to find private businesses willing to take on the costs of running the stores compared to the commission they would receive from the state. McLaughlin said that most contract stores in are more rural areas, and that state stores are usually located in urban — and generally, more expensive — areas. He said that under a prior plan to convert 10 contract stores this year, they’ve had difficulty attracting private owners to three locations in the greater Seattle area because of that.
Higher commissions Garza said they may have to consider offering higher commissions to independent businesses to entice them to take over state stores, a tough sell heading into a legislative session where the state faces a projected $5.7 billion budget hole. “Why would you want to do that if you’re not going to see a financial benefit for
the state?” he asked. Sen. Tim Sheldon, D-Potlatch, sponsored a bill earlier this year that would have closed all state liquor stores and the state distribution center, and auctioned off franchise agreements to the highest bidder, opening the door for grocery sales. His bill was ultimately turned into a study bill that didn’t go anywhere. Sheldon said he’ll also reintroduce his bill in the next session. “Privatizing liquor shows the public we can reform state government,” he said. Washington is among 18 so-called “control” or “monopoly” states that exercise broad powers over wholesale distribution of hard liquor. Of those states, 12 — including Washington — are also involved in retail alcohol sales through either state-run liquor stores, outlets operated by private contractors, or both. Last year, liquor sales generated more than $370 million in revenue to state and local governments.
Nalley’s closing landmark food plant in Tacoma The Associated Press
TACOMA — Nalley’s Fine Foods, a 92-year-old Tacoma institution, is closing its plant here and moving operations to an Iowa factory. The plant in a south Tacoma industrial area long known as “Nalley Valley” once produced a wide variety of foods, including pick-
les and potato chips, but now turns out Nalley’s Chili and Brooks Beans. Mountain Lakes, N.J.based Pinnacle Foods Group LLC, which owns dozens of nationally known brands, said its acquisition a year ago of Nalley’s owner Birds Eye Foods gave it too much capacity for canned meat products and led to the deci-
sion to centralize production at its Armour plant at Fort Madison, Iowa. The Nalley brand will be kept after the move, expected to be completed by the middle of next year. The move is contingent upon final approval of state and local incentives being offered in Iowa, provisions of which are being negoti-
ated, Pinnacle spokeswoman Michelle Weese said Friday. However, she said the deciding factors were that the Midwest plant has the better production capability and is closer to sources for ingredients. The Tacoma plant’s 160 employees will be given the chance to apply for other jobs within Pinnacle. The company also is negotiating with the plant’s three unions — the Teamsters, Operating Engineers and Machinists — on the timing of the closure and transition programs for the employees they represent. Pinnacle said it plans to invest $20 million at the accounts in a very danger- Iowa plant and add 65 jobs ous scenario in terms of the to the 430 now there. ability to cover unexpected Other brands costs,” he said.

state workers affected Continued from D1 “I think it’s not a smart way to do business in terms of controlling costs,” Zarelli said of the health-care agreement. “I don’t know what their thinking is.” The agreement, reached Thursday afternoon, has to be incorporated into the overall union contract, which is still under negotiation, and then ratified by the union. The Legislature also would have to approve funding for the contract. If the deal goes through as is, the premium changes would take place Jan. 1, 2012, and would likely cover more than 100,000 state employees, both union and nonunion.
The governor’s office said the tentative agreement would keep the state’s cost to provide employee health care in the next two-year budget at around $1.2 billion, which is what the state expects to spend in the current budget cycle. “That was our overall goal and we achieved that,” said Glenn Kuper, a spokesman for the governor’s budget office.

Could our salmon run out of food? Ocean changes studied By Les Blumenthal Tacoma News Tribune
WASHINGTON — With the number of salmon in the North Pacific having doubled in the past 50 years, scientists increasingly are concerned there may not be enough food to support them, and changing ocean conditions could make it worse. On the surface, mounting scientific evidence would seem to contradict conventional wisdom that salmon are a disappearing species. But as with everything salmon, it’s more complicated. While more than $13 billion has been spent since 1978 to try to restore wildsalmon populations in the Pacific Northwest, salmon hatcheries in the United States, Russia, Japan and Canada have expanded rapidly. In 1970, 500 million hatchery-raised salmon were released. In 2008, more than 5 billion hatchery fish headed out to sea. As with wild salmon, a small percentage of hatchery fish actually survive to spawn. Once in the ocean, the hatchery fish compete for the same food as wild salmon. While the North Pacific and the Bering Sea may be vast, salmon often congregate in the same feeding grounds. “Many hatcheries were built on the premise that the ocean had an unlimited capacity to support all salmon,” said Gregory Ruggerone, a fisheries scientist who works for Natural Resources Consultants in Seattle. That may not be true. With nearly 650 million adult Pacific salmon in the ocean at any given time, competition for food is
increasing, and alreadyshrinking wild stocks could be crowded out.
West coast runs “It could lead to a reduction in wild stocks,” said Randall Peterman, a professor in the School of Resource and Environment Management at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C. Studies in recent years suggest competition for food is affecting salmon runs up and down the West Coast, from Puget Sound chinook to Bristol Bay, Alaska, sockeye. Returning fish are smaller in some instances, making them more susceptible to predators. In others, runs are declining. Competition between wild and hatchery salmon is nothing new. Wild salmon are considered heartier and more resistant to disease than their hatchery-raised counterparts. If the salmon you buy at the fish counter isn’t farmraised, it’s likely hatcheryraised silver, coho or chinook. Fishermen are expected to toss back any wild ones they catch. Before a salmon is released from a hatchery, one of its fins is clipped to distinguish it from wild ones. The fins can be clipped by hand or using a laser device. “We know stocks from all over the Pacific intermingle and overlap,” Ruggerone said. “There is a melting pot. But there is a lot we don’t know.”
International issue The issue of too many salmon and too little food is an international one, with Japanese hatcheries releasing mostly chum salmon, valuable for their roe, and the Russian releasing pink salmon. “Five years ago at a conference in Russia, a guy stood up and said I was trying to start a war between
The Associated Press
A sea lion makes a meal out of a salmon in the Columbia River downstream from the Bonneville Dam. Russia and the U.S.,” Ruggerone said. Since the mid-1970s, the waters of the North Pacific have been slightly warmer, creating an upwelling that brings zooplankton, krill and other salmon food favorites to the surface. But a 20- to 30-year weather cycle known as the Pacific decadal oscillation could reverse itself soon, and colder water means less food for salmon. Climate change is causing even greater uncertainty. “This concern about competing for limited resources may become considerably more acute if the North Pacific area occupied by salmon decreases due to climatic change,” according to an article co-authored by Ruggerone and Peterman published this fall in a technical journal published by the American Fisheries Society. The article talks about a “common pool” of salmon food in the North Pacific and suggests hatchery fish have become so abundant that there may not be enough food for the wild fish. Despite years of study, salmon remain pretty much a mystery fish. While much is known about the time they spend

over noise, studies show By Judith Lavoie
Victoria Times Colonist
VICTORIA — Endangered killer whales in the Strait of Georgia have to shout over constant noise from increasing marine traffic, researchers say. “The noise is virtually continuous during daylight hours and quiets a little bit overnight,” Richard Dewey, associate research director on the University of Victoria’s VENUS project, said. “In addition to the annoyance of the constant din, [the whales] are likely to have to shout over the engine sounds and listen through the racket to pick out and identify the messages.” Tricky tasks, such as the use of broadband clicks to echo-locate fish — the sole diet for resident killer whales — is likely to be extremely difficult when boats and ships are nearby, Dewey said. VENUS — Victoria Experimental Network Under the Sea — has hydrophones in an underwater network of hubs in the Strait of Georgia and Saanich Inlet. The instruments are connected to researchers around the world, through high-speed communications techniques. It is a challenge sorting out the streams of noise, which also includes the scratchy sounds of creatures such as squat lobsters apparently preening their gills on the hydrophone, Dewey said. “We are picking up both engine noise and vocalization and, although we can’t understand whale-speak to say the whales are using different words or differ-
ent tones in the presence of engine noise, we hope to get that sorted out in the future,” he said. It was expected the Strait of Georgia would be noisy as it is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, but among recent changes is the increase in massive container freighters. “They travel at twice the speed that vessels used to travel at, they use four times as much energy and make four times as much noise in the ocean,” Dewey said.
Unanswered question One of the as yet unanswered research questions is whether the whales can survive increasing noise at the same time as they are coping with shrinking salmon runs and climate change. “Whether the whales and dolphins can adapt is an open question,” Dewey said. “Sorting out which part of these changes they are responding to is another part of the challenge.” Resident killer whales, with 87 animals in the three pods, are a major focus for VENUS researchers. Marine mammal specialist John Ford, of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Pacific Biological Station, is trying to learn and analyze whale language as part of the project. That means sorting out different sounds for echolocation, long-distance calling and intra-pod communication. “Then we will try to find trends that they might have to employ to adapt to this noisy environment,” Dewey said.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. and South Korea have reached an agreement on the largest trade pact in more than a decade, a highly coveted deal the Obama administration hopes will boost American exports and create tens of thousands of U.S. jobs. After a week of marathon negotiations, representatives from both countries broke through a stalemate Friday morning on outstanding issues related to the automobile industry, which have been a sticking point in the talks. The agreement would be the largest U.S. trade deal since the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, and would bolster U.S. economic ties with South Korea, the world’s 12th largest economy.

While some see the current turmoil as the slow-motion wreckage of the common currency bloc, others maintain Europe will have the political resolve to keep it together and even bring it closer together. Either way, one thing is clear: Thanks to new debt and bailout rules being agreed among the 16 eurozone nations, Europe’s monetary union will be forever altered, even if it survives the crisis.

Peninsula Daily News
Blaring TV spots come under fire Peninsula Daily News news services
WASHINGTON — Congress has come to the aid of millions of Americans who find themselves reaching for a mute button to silence those loud television commercials. “The problems with earsplitting TV advertisements have existed for more than 50 years. Not five, 50,” said Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., who noted that her office has received many messages of support and that people approach her in restaurants and supermarkets to ask about the legislation. “Television advertisers first realized that consumers often left the room during commercials, so they used loud commercials to grab their attention as they moved to other parts of their home.” On a voice vote late Thursday, the House passed an Eshoo-sponsored bill that would force the Federal Communications Commission to set new, lower volume standards for ads. The legislation, already passed by the Senate, now goes to President Obama for his signature. The new regulations, which apply to all broadcast providers, including cable and satellite, would go into effect a year after the FCC establishes new decibel levels. Ads won’t be allowed to
be louder than the loudest portions of the shows in which they’re placed. “Every American has likely experienced the frustration of abrasively loud television commercials,” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said when the Senate approved the measure in September. “While this may be an effective way for ads to grab attention, it also adds unnecessary stress to the daily lives of many Americans.”
Complaints for years Said Mark Cooper, director of research at the Consumer Federation of America: “It’s not like the consumer has any choices. It’s a case where it’s very difficult for consumers to express their sovereignty.” The FCC has been receiving complaints from consumers since the 1960s about jarring sound bursts on commercials, but the commission does not regulate program or commercial volume. Instead, it reminds viewers that newer TVs come equipped with circuits designed to stabilize volume differences or advises people that one solution is still to make aggressive use of the mute button on the remote. One reason commercials may sound louder is a
sound-compression technique in which the difference between loud and soft sounds is compressed. The result: While peak sound levels of commercials and programs may not differ, the average levels of commercials are higher. Consumers can buy volume regulators to adjust the sound, but consumer advocates say they shouldn’t have to invest in more equipment. Eshoo said there will be a “noticeable difference” in noise levels once the law goes into effect. “It’s a small bill in the greater scheme of things, she said, but “it will bring relief to millions of television viewers.” The broadcast advertisVivian Elvis Hansen/Peninsula Daily News ing industry argued that the legislation was unnecessary because broadcastestaurant s anniversary ers could police themselves.

Scientists trick cells into switching IDs By Malcolm Ritter The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Suppose you could repair tissue damaged by a heart attack by magically turning other cells into heart muscle, so the organ could pump effectively again. Scientists aren’t quite ready to do that. But they are reporting early success at transforming one kind of specialized cell directly into another kind, a feat of biological alchemy that doctors may one day perform inside a patient’s body. “I think everyone believes this is really the future of so-called stem-cell biology,” says John Gearhart of the University of Pennsylvania, one of many researchers pursuing this approach. The concept is two steps beyond the familiar story of embryonic stem cells, versatile entities that can be coaxed to become cells of all types, like brain and blood.

Scientists are learning to guide those transformations, which someday may provide transplant tissue for treating diseases like Parkinson’s or diabetes. It’s still experimental. But at its root, it’s really just harnessing and speeding up what happens in nature: a versatile but immature cell matures into a more specialized one. The first step beyond that came in 2007, when researchers reversed the process. They got skin cells to revert to a state resembling embryonic stem cells. That opened the door to a two-part strategy: turn skin cells from a patient back into stem cells, and then run the clock forward again to get whatever specialized cell you want. The new direct-conver-
sion approach avoids embryonic stem cells and the whole notion of returning to an early state. Why not just go directly from one specialized cell to another? It’s like flying direct rather than scheduling a stopover. Even short of researchers’ dreams of fixing internal organs from within, Gearhart says direct conversion may offer some other advantages over more established ways of producing specialized cells. Using embryonic stem cells is proving to be inefficient and more difficult than expected, scientists say. For example, the heart muscle cells developed from them aren’t fully mature, Gearhart noted. And there’s no satisfactory way yet to make mature insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, which might be useful for treating diabetes, says George Daley of Children’s Hospital Boston
