Port Angeles High School senior Nick Kasckan IV, 18, and language teacher Jamie Valadez hold the new Klallam dictionary. A detail of a page is at left and on Page A7.
First Klallam dictionary delivered As number of native speakers dwindles, book is called vital BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” The next time someone tries to figure out the unfamiliar alphabet and language of a sign printed in Klallam, such as the arched entrance to the Peninsula College Longhouse in Port Angeles, they can
look it up in a dictionary. A 1,008-page bound dictionary has put the language of the original North Olympic Peninsula people into print. Port Angeles High School Klallam language teacher Jamie Valadez was one of the first to receive a set of the dictionaries,
each about 4 inches thick. The delivery was fitting: Klallam is one of four languages offered to Port Angeles High School stuMontler dents to meet graduation and college entrance requirements. â€œJust before Thanksgiving, we had it in our hands,â€? Valadez said, proudly displaying one of
the library-quality volumes. Most of the books reside in Valadezâ€™s classrooms, though one is in the school library for general student use. Valadez said she also expects to donate one to the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., for public use.
Lengthy compilation The dictionary was compiled by linguist Timothy Montler and published by the University of Washington Press.
It was celebrated at a November gathering at the Port Gamble Sâ€™Klallam longhouse in Little Boston on the Kitsap Peninsula. It brought together representatives from the Port Gamble, Jamestown and Lower Elwha bands of Klallam, the latter two based on the North Olympic Peninsula. Every Port Gamble Sâ€™Klallam family and tribal government department now has a copy of the dictionary. TURN

Passings By The Associated Press
NORMAN JOSEPH WOODLAND, 91, the coinventor of the bar code that labels nearly every product in stores and has boosted productivity in nearly every sector of commerce worldwide, has died. Mr. Woodland died Sunday in Edgewater, N.J., from the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and Mr. Woodland complicain the 1950s tions of his advanced age, his daughter, Susan Woodland of New York, said Thursday. Mr. Woodland and Bernard Silver were students at what is now called Drexel University in Philadelphia when Silver overheard a grocery-store executive asking an engineering school dean to channel students into research on how product information could be captured at checkout, Susan Woodland said. Mr. Woodland notably had worked on the Manhattan Project, the U.S. military’s atomic bomb development team. Mr. Woodland dropped out of graduate school to spend time with his grandfather in Miami to focus on developing a code that could symbolically capture details about an item, Susan Woodland said. The only code Mr. Woodland knew was the Morse Code he’d learned in the Boy Scouts, his daughter said. One day, he drew Morse dots and dashes as he sat on the beach and absent-mindedly left his fingers in the sand where they traced a series of parallel lines. “It was a moment of inspiration. He said, ‘Instead of dots and dashes, I can
have thick and thin bars,’” Susan Woodland said. Mr. Woodland and Silver submitted their patent in 1949 for a code patterned on concentric circles that looked like a bull’s eye. The patent was issued in 1952, 60 years ago this past fall. Silver died in 1963.

Briefly: World Russia prepping itself for the fall of Assad regime BEIRUT — Syria’s most powerful ally and protector, Russia, began positioning itself Thursday for the fall of President Bashar Assad, saying for the first time that rebels might overthrow him, and preparing to evacuate thousands of Russian citizens from the country. The head of NATO echoed that assessment, saying the Syrian government is near collapse after a nearly two-year conflict that has killed more than 40,000 people and threatened to ignite the Middle East. Assad appears to be running out of options, with insurgents at the gates of the capital. “An opposition victory can’t be excluded, unfortunately, but it’s necessary to look at the facts: There is a trend for the government to progressively lose control over an increasing part of the territory,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, Moscow’s Middle East envoy, said at hearings at a Kremlin advisory body. Still, Bogdanov gave no immediate signal that Russia would change its pro-Syria stance at the U.N. Security Council, where Moscow has defended Damascus.
Surgery complications CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez suffered bleeding during his cancer sur-

Chavez suffered “bleeding that required Chavez the use of corrective measures” during Tuesday’s surgery, Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said, reading a government statement. It said those measures allowed for the “opportune control” of the bleeding. Villegas also said that Chavez was going through “a progressive and favorable recovery of the normal values of his vital signs.”
Rice dropping her bid for secretary of state THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Susan Rice, the embattled U.N. ambassador, abruptly withdrew from consideration to be the next secretary of state Thursday after a weeks-long standoff with Republican senators who declared they would vigorously fight her nomination. The reluctant announcement now makes Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry the likely choice to be the nation’s next top diplomat when Hillary Rodham Clinton departs soon. In another major part of the upcoming Cabinet shake-up for President Barack Obama’s second term, former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska is seen as the front-runner to be defense secretary, with official word coming as soon as next week. Obama accepted Rice’s decision with a shot at Republicans. “While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character,” he said.

Mall shooter was easygoing 22-year-old, his friends recall Ore. gunman liked video games THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PORTLAND, Ore. — To police and witnesses, Jacob Tyler Roberts was a gunman on a mission, shooting numerous rounds from a semiautomatic rifle as he stalked through a Portland mall. To Roberts’ shocked friends and family, he was just Jake, a happy, easygoing 22-year-old who liked video games and talked about moving to Hawaii.
‘Never the violent type’ “Jake was never the violent type,” Roberts’ ex-girlfriend, Hannah Patricia Sansburn, told ABC News. “His main goal was to make you laugh, smile, make you feel comfortable. You can’t reconcile the differences. “I hate him for what he did, but I can’t hate the person I knew because it was nothing like the person who would go into a mall
and go on a rampage,” she said. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said Roberts had several fully loaded m a g a z i n e s Roberts when he arrived at the mall Tuesday. Roberts parked his 1996 green Volkswagen Jetta in front of the second-floor entrance to Macy’s and walked through the store into the mall and began firing randomly in the food court. He killed Steven Mathew Forsyth, 45, and Cindy Ann Yuille, 54, the sheriff said. Kristina Shevchenko, 15, was in serious condition Wednesday. Sansburn said Roberts had recently quit his job at a gyro shop in Portland and sold all of his
belongings, telling her he was moving to Hawaii. He was supposed to take a flight Saturday but told her he got drunk and missed it. “And then this happens. . . . It makes me think, was he even planning on going to Hawaii?” Sansburn told ABC News. On a Facebook page that a friend identified as Roberts’, a few photos show Roberts with friends, while one shows the back of a person in a knit cap firing what appears to be a handgun at targets. The cover photo is of a wall painted in graffiti with the message “Follow Your Dreams” and “Canceled” stamped across it. In the public portion of his page, Roberts wrote: “I may be young but I have lived one crazy life so far.” “I’m the kind of person that is going to do what I want,” he wrote. “There is no reason for another person to tell you what to do, I’m the conductor of my choo choo train.”
Egyptian referendum CAIRO — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter’s center said Thursday it will not send monitors for Egypt’s constitutional referendum, a document guiding how the country is to be governed after its 2011 revolution. The center was the main group monitoring Egyptian votes, and its absence increases the likelihood that, if the constitution backed by President Mohammed Morsi and his Islamist allies passes, the rushed process leading to the Saturday referendum will undermine the document’s legitimacy. Egypt was plunged into political crisis three weeks ago when Morsi issued a decree giving himself near-absolute power. The Associated Press

CALL THE “12-12-12” benefit show “The Concert for New York City” 2.0. Eleven years after the benefit concert in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks was held at Madison Square Garden, many of the same top musicians came together to raise money for those suffering from superstorm Sandy, including Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel and The Who. Alicia Keys, who grew up in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen, closed the night, which promoters said raised $300 million from ticket sales and sponsors ahead of the concert, with “Empire State of Mind” as emergency responders joined her onstage.
ONE OF PRESIDENT Barack Obama’s Senate allies said Thursday that an increase in the Medicare eligibility age is “no longer one of the items being considered by the White House” in negotiations with top Republicans on avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff. Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said he didn’t get it directly from the president or the White House. But he is regularly updated on the negotiations. Increasing the eligibility age is a key demand by Republicans. Obama and House Speaker John Boehner remain far apart on trying to avoid a looming “fiscal cliff” of expiring tax cuts and spending reductions.
THE NURSE WAS duped by a hoax call from Australian DJs about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge apparently hanged herself, a British inquest was told Thursday. Jacintha Saldanha was discovered hanging by a scarf from a wardrobe in her nurses’ quarters last Friday by a colleague at London’s King Edward VII Hospital. Police Detective Chief Inspector James Harman said Saldanha, 46, also had injuries to her wrists. He said the case is being treated as an apparent suicide — two notes were also found at the scene and another was found among the nurse’s belongings.
ALEXANDER LITIVINENKO, THE former Russian agent-turned-Kremlin critic, was a “registered and paid” agent working for Britain’s foreign intelligence agency when he died after being mysteriously poisoned, a lawyer representing his widow told a hearing Thursday. Another lawyer said the U.K. has evidence the Russian government was behind Litvinenko’s death. The 43-year-old Russian died in November 2006 after drinking tea laced with the rare radioactive isotope polonium-210 at a London hotel. Six years later, British authorities are reopening investigations into the circumstances of his death.

Reaching for stars a cinch for graduate University of Washington senior Justin Gailey, a graduate of Port Angeles High School, prepares for a portable planetarium show Thursday at the high school.
PA High alum brings â€˜starlabâ€™ to old campus BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” When 2009 Port Angeles High School graduate Justin Gailey, 21, returned to his alma mater Thursday, he brought the stars with him in the back of his car. Gailey, a senior physics and astronomy major at the University of Washington, arrived in Port Angeles with a kit that assembles into a digital planetarium with room for 35 â€” in less than a half-hour. On Thursday, a group of 20 students from teacher John Henryâ€™s introductory science class gathered around the balloon-tent planetarium, set up in the foyer of the schoolâ€™s auditorium, and filled out questionnaires asking them about their interest in science. From the outside, the big black-fabric, igloo-shaped room looks like a childrenâ€™s bounce room, complete with an air blower to keep the dome inflated. Students kicked off their shoes, then ducked through the opening and into outer space.
Daylight gone Inside the dome, the lining shut out daylight, while the white interior sparkled with stars and planets. Students were taken through an interactive tour of the solar system, then viewed the Milky Way gal-
axy and beyond into the larger universe. The entire trip was led by Gailey using a computer and a suitcase-sized â€œdigital starlabâ€? that not only show can the nightâ€™s sky from the Earthâ€™s point of view, but move the entire audience to any point in time and space the pilot wants to take them.

Wanted: 2 part-time deputies Hires to beef up security at Clallam Courthouse BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply at w w w. n a t i o n a l t e s t i n g network.com. Security became a hot topic at the courthouse after a Grays Harbor deputy was attacked at the courthouse in Montesano last March. The deputy, Polly Davin, was shot with her own handgun during a scuffle with suspect Steven Kravetz. Her injuries were not life-threatening. “We don’t want to wait until something like that occurs here,” Sukert said.
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County is looking for two good men or women to fill a pair of newly funded half-time positions at the county jail. The part-time corrections deputies will enable an experienced full-time deputy to move upstairs when courts are in session to augment the work of courtroom-courthouse security Deputy Gary Gorss. Sheriff Bill Benedict requested funding for the part-time positions in a Nov. 1 budget meeting with county commissioners and budget administrators.

U.S. to stop language aid Border Patrol to refer to private services instead, new decree says BY MANUEL VALDES THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — U.S. Border Patrol agents will no longer serve as interpreters when local law enforcement agencies request language help, according to a new decree issued by the Department of Homeland Security. The new guidance said agents should refer such requests to private services often used by government agencies. Seeking language help is a common practice among local law enforcement agencies in Washington state. If a person is pulled over and can only speak Spanish, the U.S. Border Patrol is often called. However, immigration advocates complain that Border Patrol agents ask people questions about immigration and in some cases arrest people suspected of being in the country illegally. “The concept of language access should be without people being questioned about their immigration status,” said Jorge Baron, execu-

number of agents in the Blaine sector, which covers the border west of the Cascades, went from 133 to 331. Along with providing language services, Border Patrol agents often assist local law agencies that are short on personnel and equipment. In addition, highway checkpoints have been implemented.
Peninsula lawsuit The American Civil Liberties Union and Northwest Immigrant Rights Project filed a lawsuit earlier this year seeking to bar Border Patrol agents from doing traffic stops on the Olympic Peninsula, claiming people were being pulled over and questioned over the way they look and without reasonable suspicion. The lawsuit is pending. The Border Patrol has denied any discrimination.

tive director of the Seattlebased Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, a legal aid organization. Immigrants have grown apprehensive about calling local law enforcement agencies if they knew the Border Patrol is going to respond, he said. The new Border Patrol guidance should help, even though it leaves agents some room for decision-making, he said. The Border Patrol said Thursday it is trying to use its resources efficiently. “The new guidance related to requests for translation services helps further focus CBP efforts on its primary mission to secure our nation’s borders,” a statement by Customs and Bor-
der Protection said. “CBP remains committed to assisting our law enforcement partners in their enforcement efforts.” The Northwest Immigrant Rights Project sent a letter in May to the Department of Justice and Homeland Security saying the interpreting practice violated the Civil Rights Act. The letter included dashboard camera video in which a Border Patrol agent is heard using a derogatory term for illegal immigrants. After the 9/11 attacks, President George W. Bush ordered U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, to beef up its presence on the U.S.-Canada border, which is almost twice as long as the U.S.-Mexico border. In 2007, the northern border had about 1,100 agents. Now it has more than 2,200. In the same period, the

Wild: Logging interests CONTINUED FROM A1
Kilmer makes hires
The legislation has improved from its initial version but still has drawbacks, said Kilmer, a Port Angeles native who lives in Gig Harbor and comes to Capitol Hill after stints in the state Legislature. â€œI also continue to believe that we need to see an increase in harvest levels in our federal forests,â€? Kilmer said, aligning himself with the North Olympic Peninsula Timber Action Committee and other logging interests. â€œThat involves a broader stakeholder conversation, and thatâ€™s a conversation I intend to have.â€? Asked if Wild Olympics legislation will be a top priority, Kilmer said he intends to focus on what he ran on: small businesses, creating jobs and â€œmoving the economy forward,â€? he said. â€œThat will be my initial priority,â€? he said.
U.S. REP.-ELECT DEREK Kilmer has announced his first congressional staff hires. Jonathan Smith will serve as his chief of staff, Meadow Johnson will be his district director, and Joe Dacca will work as his deputy district director. Kilmer Smith has nearly a decade of experience working in Congress, both in individual congressional membersâ€™ offices and on the staff of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He also worked as an attorney for the Seattle-based law firm Preston, Gates and Ellis. He will be based in Kilmerâ€™s Washington, D.C., office when Democrat Kilmer is sworn in Jan. 3. Johnson is a lifelong resident of the 6th District, attending Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor, Tacoma Community College and the University of Washington-Tacoma. Johnson has spent several years working for Kilmer when the latter was a state legislator. Prior to her work in politics, she worked in the real estate industry. A graduate of Gig Harbor High School and the University of Washington, Dacca has spent the past five years working in the district office of Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair. Dacca also was a legislative assistant for Kilmer during Kilmerâ€™s first term in the state Senate. Peninsula Daily News
Resigns positions In a letter Monday to Gov. Chris Gregoire, Kilmer, 38, resigned his 26th District state Senate seat representing parts of Pierce and Kitsap counties. He also resigned Monday as vice president of the Economic Development Board of Tacoma-Pierce County. Wild Olympics was introduced June 21 in stand-alone bills in the Senate by U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Bothell, and in the House by Rep. Norm Dicks, the Belfair Democrat who is stepping down after having held the 6th District seat since 1977. The legislation is expected to die at the end of this congressional session, said Crystal Feldman, a spokeswoman for the House Committee on Natural Resources, where the bill has been mired for six months. Congress is expected to be in session between Christmas and New Yearâ€™s Day, she said. Kilmer and other new members of the House will be sworn in Jan. 3. â€œLegislation will have to be reintroduced and go through the same process it did with this Congress,â€? Feldman said. Murray spokeswoman Meghan Roh said Murray plans to reintroduce the legislation in the Senate next year. Meanwhile, Kilmer said he will not have a storefront presence in Port Angeles â€” as does Dicks â€” but will have an office somewhere in
the city. Kilmer said he intends to â€œhave a presenceâ€? in Port Angeles, perhaps an office within an office building, but will not lease a storefront because of budget constraints, including an expected 6 percent cut in congressional office budgets. â€œPort Angeles is my hometown, and I want to make sure we will be accessible to constituents throughout Clallam County,â€? Kilmer said. â€œWe want to be thoughtful on how we approach staffing and leases and things like that to ensure we are being financially responsible.â€? Kilmer bested Republican Bill Driscoll of Tacoma on Nov. 6 with 59 percent to Driscollâ€™s 41 percent. The 6th Districtâ€™s 400,000 voters live in Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Mason and Kitsap counties and part of Tacoma in Pierce County Kilmer met with about three dozen constituents Monday night at the Cotton Building in Port Townsend. He will host another meet-and-greet from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday at the Clallam County Democratsâ€™ office in the Lee Hotel building at 124-A W. First St. in Port Angeles. For the past few weeks, Kilmer has been going through congressional orientation in Washington, D.C.

Regulators take aim at recreation RERUNS ARE TIRESOME, none more so than the latest assault on recreation at the Dungeness Spit. The Nov. 30 PDN headline, Martha M. “Plan Would Ireland Prohibit Horses, Jogging on Dungeness Spit,” shouldn’t have surprised me. Two men in park rangerstyle uniforms dropped by my office at the courthouse when I was a Clallam County commissioner in the late 1990s. They hadn’t made an appointment and weren’t interested in talking to the full board, just to the East End commissioner. They were working on new restrictions for the Dungeness Spit, they said. Their intent was to shut out horse riders. During my daughter’s teenage years, the Spit had been one of her favorite places to ride.
Stunned, I stammered out my objections. The Dungeness Spit has a split personality. The spit, tidelands and bay were declared a National Wildlife Refuge by President Woodrow Wilson on Jan. 20, 1915. The refuge has since grown to 636 acres, with the addition of a small forested upland area acquired from the county in the early 1970s. The only land access to the spit is through Clallam County’s 216-acre Dungeness Recreation Area. The area wasn’t always a preserve. It had been part of a farm until it was tapped as a radio tower site for the Voice of America broadcasting system, founded 70 years ago. When the site was surplused, Clallam County stepped in to rescue it from residential development. Strained county finances made the purchase controversial, but the area soon became a popular multiuse playground.
It now features 67 camping spaces with amenities, plus hiking and equestrian trails. The recreation area is not a typical park. It was created specifically to preserve access for established recreational pursuits — notably hunting for waterfowl, upland birds and deer. Hunting draws criticism every year from people who do not understand or care that hunting has been an intrinsic use of this site and — along with fishing, wildlife observation, photography and environmental education and interpretation — is a priority public use automatically deemed appropriate on refuges. When the county signed part of the uplands and the trail down to the spit over to U.S. Fish and Wildlife about 40 years ago, the document very clearly stipulated that the intent was to preserve public access for recreation forever. Horse riding was specifically mentioned, a fact I pointed out to the refuge planners.
Peninsula Voices National lands In 1897, President Grover Cleveland set aside Olympic National Forest. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt said: “And now, first and foremost, you can never afford to forget for a moment what is the object of our forest policy. “That object is not to preserve the forests because they are beautiful, though that is good in itself; nor because they are refuges for the wild creatures of the wilderness, though that, too, is good in itself; but the primary object of our forest policy, as of the land policy of the United States, is the making of prosperous homes.” National forests have categories of wilderness, recreation and forest managing by logging while in prime condition. On the Olympic Peninsula, it is impossible for timber to not replace itself. A tree cannot be kept forever. It will eventually crash and splinter. Transfer of national forest lands into Olympic National Park was accomplished. Soon, ONP became so gluttonous one would think land would disappear if it was not park. Austerity to ONP means
closed trails, campgrounds and use. About 50 years ago, a group of avid skiers who flew all over the globe to “destination resorts,” had financing to build a worldclass resort at Seven Lakes Basin. ONP denied it. With sky tram service, it would not need a highway to build now. Many local resorts were closed upon ONP acquisition. Investors could bid to reopen them. National parks should be returned to their states. “Fiscal cliff” changes needed to avert tragedy could prove good for everyone. Lorraine Ross, pret our world.

They suggested a compromise. Riders would still be allowed to go down, but could ride only to the west, along the beach at the bottom of the bluff, not on the Spit itself. I said that would be better than a total ban, but I wasn’t sure it would be good enough. Within days, word came back to me that the refuge planners were telling horse people that I had endorsed their limited use plan, with an advance reservation system they hadn’t mentioned. It never made sense to me, but the Spit had never been heavily used by riders, and some equestrian access seemed better than none. In reality, getting a pass to go down the access ramp was made so difficult that most equestrians quit riding in the refuge, except for a very few disabled people who were able to obtain special permits to use horses on the Spit as a conveyance under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Gun registration is the first step toward gun confiscation. If the goal is to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, please be aware that criminals don’t usually register their guns. So, the very people who the writer wishes to disenfranchise will still have guns. Gun registration serves repressive governments very well.

Hard lessons of winter backpacking MY FIRST WINTER backpacking trip was over the Christmas holidays years ago, when I decided it might be fun to visit Deer Lake, high in the Olympic Mountains above the Sol Duc River valley. Deer Lake is one of the very Seabury first day hikes Blair Jr. I made in the Olympics, arriving there quite by accident because my original destination was Hidden Lake, a tiny lake that lies off the Lover’s Lane Trail between Sol Duc Hot Springs and Sol Duc Falls.
The steep climb to Hidden Lake entails scrambling up a ridge above the outlet stream. Unfortunately, I chose the wrong outlet stream, which my wife insists I do more often than not. You may choose to believe her cruel exaggerations if you wish. In any event, I ended up floundering through brush and devil’s club for about a mile up Canyon Creek. That brawling watercourse tumbles out of Deer Lake into the Sol Duc River, just below the junction of the Deer Lake Trail with the Lover’s Lane Trail at Sol Duc Falls. After about an hour of clawing through and being clawed by brush, I reached my hand up to feel the smooth tread of a trail. It was a trail that I was cer-

tain did not exist on any map, but it certainly beat battling brush. So I followed it as it climbed to a wide log bridge across Canyon Creek, then switched back and began a steeper climb above the creek to Deer Lake. Total distance by trail is about 4 miles, and it seemed that I added at least that much by wallowing around in the woods, probably within sight of anyone hiking on the trail — a mad bushman. Since that malodorous first hike, I’ve visited Deer Lake many times in the summer and fall, and came to know the trail well enough to follow once it was covered by several feet of snow. Thus it became my first winter backpack, one replete with
lessons from that sternest of teachers, Mother Nature. Lesson No. 1: Walking in a couple feet of snow is so much easier when you aren’t carrying 40 pounds of gear on your back. Lesson No. 2: A summer’s day hike to Deer Lake took me about 1 hour, 30 minutes. I figured it would take me about 3 hours with overnight gear. It took me closer to 6 hours, and I arrived after dark. Lesson No. 3, an additional bit of winter camping advice: Get yourself a tent with poles of equal length. It is difficult in the dark to tell which poles are the short ones, especially if you neglected to check the batteries in your head lamp before departing. Another thing: Getting drink-
ing water in the summer is a simple matter of dipping your cup or water filter into an alpine stream or lake. When there’s a couple feet of snow between you and the climb to water’s edge, you might want to use a ski pole or nearby tree branch to keep you from falling into the water. And finally, clothes dry so much more slowly in winter than summer.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
A tale of two CIA women RARELY HAVE THERE been two such intriguing women at the heart of such a dramatic true story. The first, a smart, prickly, compulsive CIA operative in her 30s, is the real-life Carrie Mathison (minus the slutty behavior at work). She started Maureen at the agency out of school, Dowd just before the twin towers were attacked on 9/11, and worked in Islamabad tracking terrorists with the monomaniacal zeal of Captain Ahab. Like Carrie, she’s a talented analyst but not, according to colleagues, Miss Congeniality. The Washington Post’s Greg Miller wrote about the young woman who spent years messianically hunting down Osama bin Laden, convinced that they could find the fiend by trailing the couriers who hand-delivered messages to him. The inspiration for Maya — the character played by Jessica Chastain in the new Kathryn Bigelow/Mark Boal movie, “Zero Dark Thirty” — the CIA operative was allowed to share her story with Boal for his screenplay. She is described in the movie as a “her against the world” lone wolf and “killer” whose bosses learn life is better when they don’t disagree with her. She was working in Pakistan as a targeter, recruiting spies and finding drone targets, when President Barack Obama put bin Laden’s capture back on the front burner. “The operative, who remains undercover, was passed over for a promotion that many in the CIA thought would be impossible to withhold from someone who played such a key role in one of the most successful operations in agency history,” Miller writes.
Who do you have to kill to get a raise around here? Miller continued: “She has sparred with CIA colleagues over credit for the bin Laden mission. After being given a prestigious award for her work, she sent an email to dozens of other recipients saying they didn’t deserve to share her accolades, current and former officials said,” since they had tried to obstruct her. In “No Easy Day,” the account of the raid by Matt Bissonnette, one of the SEALs who went after bin Laden, the female operative is called “Jen.” She wears expensive high heels and ribs Bissonnette about being part of “the boys’ club” that shows up at the very end “for the big game.” When Bissonnette asks Jen to give him the honest odds that Osama is in the compound, she shoots back: “One hundred percent.” After the terrorist is killed and brought to a hangar in Jalalabad, she is overwhelmed and begins crying. Bigelow, the driven director who tells the story of the driven operative, says she felt as if she’d been dealt “a royal flush” when they discovered a young woman at the center of the Osama hunt. You can say they undermine their heroine’s story of relentless, patient data crunching by leaving the impression — a false one, according to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee — that waterboarding played a crucial role in getting Osama. Or, as the blogger Spencer Ackerman points out on Wired.com, you can say the film boldly depicts torture as “the intersection of ignorance and brutality.” Bigelow, too, sets off waves of envy in her insular community. The glamorous 61-year-old, the first woman to win a best director Oscar, for “The Hurt Locker,” has become Hollywood’s unsentimental premier chronicler of war. After worrying about criticism of their CIA access from the right,
Bigelow and Boal are now the toasts of the right. Some who have seen the movie say the harrowing repeated opening sequences of waterboarding, beating and degrading a detainee in a CIA black site to elicit intelligence puts “a thumb on the scale for torture,” as Slate’s Emily Bazelon writes. But the debate flares about whether this is merely “a problem of emphasis and degree, not absolute falsity,” as Bazelon argues, or whether it makes the film “borderline fascistic,” as the New York magazine film critic David Edelstein referred to the “unholy masterwork.” He also named it the best movie of 2012. Bigelow told Dexter Filkins of The New Yorker that she was taking “almost a journalistic approach to film,” while Boal told New York magazine that he uses a “hybrid of the filmic and the journalistic.” So did they gild, or in this case, waterboard the lily? Torture, after all, is a lot more “filmic” than poring over data. As The New York Times’ Scott Shane and Charlie Savage have written, “the harsh techniques played a small role at most in identifying bin Laden’s trusted courier and exposing his hide-out.” On a conference call Tuesday organized by Human Rights First, Tony Camerino, an author and former Air Force interrogator, said he was puzzled over why Boal created “a piece of fiction” when “the real story” would be “just as exciting.” Boal told TheWrap.com that despite the gruesome torture scenes, viewers who come away thinking torture was the pivotal tactic in nabbing bin Laden, rather than one method used in a decade-long hunt, are “misreading the film.”

Union violence in age of Obama NOT SO MANY moons ago, President Barack Obama urged us all to “make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.” He Who Heals advoMichelle cated “a more civil and honest Malkin public discourse” in the wake of the January 2011 Tucson massacre. As usual, though, the White House has granted Big Labor bullies a permanent waiver from the lofty edicts it issues to everyone else. This week, menacing union goons unleashed threats, profanity and punches in Michigan, which is now poised to become a “right-towork” state. Obama met the initial outbreak of violence with the same response he’s given to every other union outbreak of violence under his reign: dead silence. On the floor of the Michigan legislature on Tuesday, Democratic state Rep. Douglas Geiss thundered: “We’re going to pass something that will undo 100 years of labor relations, and there will be blood. There will be repercussions!” Geiss referenced the Battle of the Overpass, a violent 1937 incident between the United Auto Workers and security officers for the Ford Motor Co. Dozens of union activists were beaten. As the Michigan House voted inside to approve right-to-work legislation allowing workers to choose whether or not to join/fund unions as a condition of employment, protesters outside the state Capitol ambushed a tented information booth sponsored by the pro-right-to-work state chapter of Americans for Prosperity.
Angry union mobsters were filmed cursing and screaming just before the attack. Several peaceful AFP members and supporters were stomped on and punched while trapped under the tent as the labor operatives chanted: “This is what democracy looks like.” Of course, this is just more of the same twisted “civil and honest public discourse” of the administration’s union protection squad: ■ May 2010: The Service Employees International Union buses in 700 workers from 20 states to storm Bank of America deputy general counsel Gregory Baer’s neighborhood and terrorize his youngest son while at home alone in Chevy Chase, Md. The tactic is straight from an SEIU intimidation manual on using community groups to “damage an employer’s public image and ties with community leaders and organizations.” ■ September 2010: AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka praises Nancy Pelosi for taking Obamacare and driving “it down the Republicans’ throats and out their backsides.” ■ August 2011: Striking Communications Workers of America declare “open season” on Verizon. Dozens of cases of sabotaged cable lines are reported. ■ September 2011: ILWU bosses lead a “Days of Rage” protest at Port of Longview in Washington state, taking a half-dozen guards hostage, sabotaging railroad cars, dumping grain, smashing windows, cutting brake lines, threatening a local TV station and blocking trains in violation of a judicial restraining order. ■ February 2011: A Communications Workers of America union thug is caught on tape striking a young female FreedomWorks activist in Washington, D.C. ■ February 2011: Democratic Rep. Michael Capuano of Massachusetts revs up Big Labor goons
by urging them to “get a little bloody.” ■ March 2011: Racist SEIU supporters in Denver, Colo., taunt gay black tea party activist and entrepreneur Leland Robinson, who criticized teachers unions at a Capitol rally, by calling him “son,” telling him to “get behind that fence where you belong,” and jeering, “Do you have any children? That you claim?” ■ March 2011: In Madison, Wis., an unhinged crowd of AFSCME, UFCW and SEIU union protesters corner a Wisconsin GOP senator, shouting epithets. ■ August 2011: In Boston, local IBEW 827 storms Verizon Senior Vice President Bill Foshay’s neighborhood. Union members scream, “We’re here to fight” in front of his private residence on a weekend afternoon. ■ September 2011: Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa screams: “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these [SOBs] out . . .” ■ December 2011: Unionendorsed port protests in Oakland, Calif., Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego and Houston cause massive commerce disruptions, lost wages, property destruction and injuries. A year later, ports are shut down on the West Coast during the busy holiday season, and another set of union port strikes — spearheaded by the violenceprone ILWU and ILA — threaten the East and Gulf coasts at the end of the month. We should “do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations,” Obama lectured just over a year ago from his politeness pulpit. In the age of Obama, it’s Opposite Day 365 days a year.

Six-year-old Jordyn Erdmann, a first-grade student at Olympic Christian School in Port Angeles, carries a bundle of empty boxes into the former auto parts store at Second and Peabody streets in Port Angeles, the site of the Salvation Armyâ€™s Christmas toys and food distribution center. Students at the school assisted in the unloading of a Salvation Army van filled with empty boxes Thursday as part of a field trip around the city. The boxes, donated by a cardboard manufacturer in Seattle, will be used for food baskets for distribution before Christmas.
Buddhism instructor plans final classes on Peninsula PT resident will move to Miami later this month BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” A teacher of Buddhism who has lived and taught in Port Townsend for 11 years will teach two more classes this weekend before moving to Miami on Dec. 23. â€œPort Townsend provides an experience for people who are seeking happiness,â€? said Robert Lapham, who is also known as Drimed Dorje. â€œIt is unique because everyone here is galvanized with the idea that they can create a place that is better than it is,â€? Lapham said. â€œBut Buddha taught that if you want to be fully awake, then you donâ€™t take
the easiest path, and Miami is full of people who are escaping dictators and other bad situations.â€? Lapham will present the talk â€œIn the Footsteps of the Buddhaâ€? from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. today in the Raymond Carver Room of the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Rosewind Common House on Umatilla Street near San Juan Avenue in Port Townsend. Admission is a suggested donation of $20, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds, Lapham said.
Positive vs. negative Lapham said Buddhism is perceived as a religion but actually is a concept that centers around positive and negative thinking. â€œAnyoneâ€™s suffering is caused by their negative thoughts and the negative

Such desires attract people to dating sites, where participants project who they want to be and not who they actually are. Another example of this is the popular email scam that promises riches without effort, which Lapham said is something people want to believe is possible. While Lapham several hundred times before has presented versions of the material to be featured this weekend, the process demonstrates how teachers can still learn. â€œEach time I hear Buddhaâ€™s teachings, awareness awakens more,â€? he said. â€œEach time I study or teach these sacred texts, this ageless wisdom increases the power of my own positive thinking.â€?

Program needs toys for oldest, youngest
MACY'S DECLARES FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14 National
Donations 50% below last yearâ€™s
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program volunteers in Clallam County are scrambling to meet a steady rise in requests for toys, even as donations have dropped off this year for young teens and children ages 3 and younger. Donations are more than 50 percent below those of last year, creating a gap for some age groups, according to local Toys for Tots coordinator Eric Miner. Miner said the Toys for Tots campaign has received 3,550 toy requests so far this year, while only about 3,800 toys have been donated. More toy requests are expected. Last year, there were 4,115 requests filled by 11,085 donated toys. Gifts appropriate for young teenagers and children from newborn to age 3 are in high demand as Christmas approaches.

Weekends only this year
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The lodge building at the North Olympic Peninsula’s ski and snow play area atop Hurricane Ridge is scheduled to open for the winter season this weekend. And there’s an unusual amount of snow already at the mile-high Ridge — more than 5 feet as of Wednesday. “There’s a lot of snow — more than normal for this time of year,” said Frank Crippen, owner of North By Northwest ski and surf
That schedule coincides with the FridaySunday openings of Hurricane Ridge Road, which extends 17 miles south from Port Angeles off Race Street and Mount Angeles Road. The road is not maintained Mondays through Thursdays this season. The National Weather Service forecasts 1 inch to 2 inches of snow today, 3 inches to 5 inches Saturday and light snow on Sunday. Snow-removal crews were clearing Hurricane Ridge Road on Thursday for today’s
opening of the road, park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said. Before heading up to the Ridge, it’s always a good idea to phone the park’s recorded hotline at 360-565-3131. It has the latest information on road and weather conditions.
Snowshoe activities With relatively flat terrain, ranger-guided snowshoe hikes and dramatic vistas for beginning and casual snowshoers, plus more difficult, technical trails for advanced snowshoe athletes, Hurricane Ridge is a popular destination. “It’s a great way to get off the beaten track,” said Ranger Janis Burger, lead interpreter for the snowshoe hikes. Ranger-led 90-minute snowshoe walks, suited to beginners and families, will be offered at 2 p.m. each day. TURN
Artists’ spirits unleashed Show at Elwha Heritage Center includes array of artwork BY DIANE URBANI

Roger Fernandes’ reflection on wolves is among the pieces in the “Spirit Unleashed” art show. Admission is free.
PORT ANGELES — Suzie Bennett kept hearing the same question back in 2011: What’s the theme of the art show? Bennett, director of the Elwha Klallam Heritage Training Center, paused. “I didn’t want to stifle anybody’s creativity,” she remembers thinking. Then: “Just release the spirit within you,” she told the wouldbe art exhibitors. They have. Members of the Lower Elwha Klallam, Coeur d’Alene, Makah, Port Gamble S’Klallam and Quileute tribes, alongside artists from the Sts’ailes Band and Yakama Nation, will have their work unveiled at the show’s opening reception Saturday evening. The exhibition, titled “Spirit Unleashed,” will be at the Elwha training center, 401 E. First St. Unlike the first show in 2011, it features art by Native American and non-Native people, since Bennett and the Elwha tribe wanted to make it more inclusive.

They are made of reflective blue metal and incorporate the new city logo. â€œThe new signs should provide a higher level of visibility and, when the program is fully installed, will provide uniformity in appearance throughout the city limits,â€? said Streets
Manager Mike Brandt. This year, residents and visitors will see the new signs on Sequim Avenue between Fir Street and Hemlock Street and on Washington Street between Brown Road and Fifth Avenue. Because of budget restraints, replacing street signs will be an ongoing project. It is estimated that it will take three to four years to replace all the signs. For more information, contact Brandt at 360-6834908 or mbrandt@sequim Sequim city crews are installing new street signs bearing the new city logo and made of wa.gov. reflective blue metal.

Bird counts starting
Steelie update Steelhead fishing is getting a little better on the Bogachiel River. The levels were too high earlier this week, but have dropped back down to acceptable levels. “They’re getting fish every day, but it ain’t smoking hot, I can tell you that,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said. “Guys that really know what they’re doing are doing OK. “But it’s not spectacular.” Bob Aunspach of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles, who must know what he is doing, caught a fish on the Bogachiel on Sunday, but he said that the fishing “has been a little slow.”
Saltwater report Aunspach said the blackmouth fishery is picking up on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. He added that Swain’s finally has an entrant on its monthly salmon ladder, a seven-pound, 10-ounce blackmouth. TURN
PA rallies in 2nd half for big win BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Roughriders fell into their own trap on Wednesday night. But they were able to climb out of it and beat North Kitsap 68-54 in a clash between two of the Olympic League’s top girls basketball teams. The Riders’ defense created a frenetic pace and they took a 28-15 lead after a 3-pointer by Madison Hinrichs midway through the second quarter. But then the Riders got caught up in the speed of the game and started forcing passes and turning the ball over. “We wanted to make North Kitsap play faster than they were skilled enough to play, and we did, and they threw the ball away and all that,” Port Angeles Michael Poindexter said. “And then suddenly in the second quarter we started playing the same game, making passes that maybe would be successful one out of 10 times, on a miracle. “I really thought we were way too risky in that second quarter and let them back in; way too undisciplined with fouls, and let them back in.”

North Kitsap (2-2, 2-3) finished the quarter on a 12-1 run to cut Riders’ lead to 29-27 at halftime. “We really wanted to win this game, so I think we were a little bit anxious,” Hinrichs said of the sloppy play to end the first half. Hinrichs led all scorers with 25 points. TURN
Forks shades Devils in thriller Jacobson sparks Spartans over talented Neah Bay boys team PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
FORKS — The undefeated Forks boys basketball team survived its toughest test of the season by beating Neah Bay 60-54 on Wednesday night. Spartans coach Rick Gooding was impressed with the 1B Red Devils. “It was a fast-paced game, they are definitely quick,” Gooding said. “You can tell why they’ve finished second [and third] at state the last few years. “They’re a bunch of athletes.” Mark Jacobson led the way for Forks with 18 points and 13 rebounds, while guard Colton Raben added 11. “Jacobson had a huge game,” Gooding said. “He had some huge free throws in the fourth quarter; he went 4 for 5 [at the line] and we needed every one of them. “Raben hit a couple of huge 3s, so it’s good to see him get his shooting touch back.” Abraham Venske topped Neah Bay in scoring with 18. The Red Devils’ offense was a handful for Forks. “We did a good job kind of limiting them,” Gooding said. “We had to get out of our zone because they were hitting 3s all over us. Then when we manned them up, they showed their quickness. “But our boys fought hard, struggled through it and we got the win. “It was a close game the entire time.” Forks (1-0, 6-0) plays a SWLEvergreen Division game at Rochester (0-1, 1-4) tonight. Neah Bay (1-1 overall) travels to play Oakville on Saturday afternoon.

IT’S BEGINNING TO look a lot like bird-counting time. The annual Christmas Bird Lee Counts begin Horton Saturday throughout the United States and run through January. The North Olympic Peninsula has three separate counts in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend. The Port Townsend count is Saturday and the Sequim/Dungeness count is Monday. The Port Angeles count will be held Sunday, Dec. 30. The data from the bird counts are crucial because they reveal the longterm trends of birds. The mighty bald eagle is an example. Bob Boekelheide, the compiler for the Sequim/Dungeness count, said seeing bald eagles on the Peninsula was rare in the 1970s. But since the banning of DDT in that decade, bald eagles have recovered, and recent counts have shown more than 100 living in the area. The Christmas Bird Counts are open to anyone. “You don’t have to be a bird expert,” Barbara Blackie, the Port Angeles count compiler, said. “We definitely need bird experts, but [those who aren’t] can be teamed up with people who are. “It’s a good way to get started with the Christmas Bird Counts.” There are a couple of ways to participate. You can either join a team that is assigned a specific area within a 15-mile radius or you can count the birds in your own neighborhood. It is too late to join the Port Townsend count, but there is still time to get involved with one of the other two. Here is some information: ■ Sequim/Dungeness count: Date: Monday Contact: Bob Boekelheide at 360-808-1096. Though this count is just a few days away, you can participate if you contact Boekelheide by noon Sunday. If you prefer to just count the birds that come to your feeder or those in your neighborhood, Boekelheide can send you an official tally sheet. Boekelheide said this is typically one of the largest counts in the state. In fact, last year the Sequim/ Dungeness count set an all-time state record with 151 species counted. ■ Port Angeles count: Date: Sunday, Dec. 30. Contact: Barbara Blackie at 360-477-8028 or blackieb@olypen. com. Blackie notes that participants won’t meet up before the count, but will do so afterwards.

North Kitsap 86, Port Angeles 80 POULSBO â€” The Roughriders gave Olympic League contender North Kitsap Vikings a major scare as Marshall Elliott and Garrett Payton combined for 43 points Wednesday night.

The Spartans stayed within four points (13-9) in the first period and within two in the third stanza (1311). But the second quarter was too much. â€œWe lost our defensive intensity in the second quarter, and it was very difficult to overcome that the rest of the way. â€œI was pleased how we came out in the third quarter as the last two games weâ€™ve been a little flat coming out from halftime.â€? Merrissa Murner added eight points for Neah Bay while Holly Greene had seven. Courtnie Paul and Jillian Raben pumped in six points each for the Spartans. â€œThe girls did a good job of running our plays and playing some tougher defense during that third quarter,â€? Scheibner said. â€œIt was a good [nonleague] game for us as our league [SWL-Evergreen Division] has similar teams.â€?
Klahowya 60, Port Townsend 45 SILVERDALE â€” Three players scored in double figures for the Eagles as Klahowya held off the Redskins in Olympic League action Wednesday night. The Eagles improved to 2-2 in league and 3-4 overall while Port Townsend slipped to 2-4 in league and overall.

The Spartans stayed with the Red Devils in the first and third quarters but a 27-2 run in the second period put the game away for Neah Bay. That gave the Red Devils a 40-11 halftime lead. â€œI thought we played two
quarters of pretty good basketball,â€? Forks coach Al Scheibner said. â€œUnfortunately for us, the game is four quarters long. Neah Bay is a scrappy and tough opponent. You canâ€™t let up for a second or they will make you pay.â€?
PORT TOWNSEND â€” Senior forward Codi Hallinan had the type of game for the Redskins that she will be telling her grandchildren about one day. In a rare feat, Hallinan accomplished a triple-double in the Olympic League game Wednesday night. The 6-foot-2 player sank 16 points while pulling down 11 rebounds and blocking an amazing 18 shots.

â€œWe finally stopped turning the ball over and pretty much started playing our game.â€? Poindexter credited North Kitsap for some of the Ridersâ€™ struggles. â€œI really like [Vikings coach Tim French]. I like their program. Theyâ€™ve come a long way in two years,â€? Poindexter said. â€œTheyâ€™re very competitive, right near the top of the league. â€œKristin Brown had 18 points, she had a nice game. And I bet thatâ€™s the lowest scoring Rebekah Baugh has had all year, easily. Sheâ€™s their top scorer.â€? Baugh was held to seven points. The Riders (5-0, 5-1) will be tested again tonight when they play at Bremer-
SEQUIM â€” Alexas Besand popped in 12 points and grabbed an equal 12 rebounds to spark the Wolves to their first Olympic League win of the year.

The Vikings stayed close for most of the third quarter, and even had a twopoint lead with under 3 minutes to play in the period before Macy Walker and Shayla Northern put the Riders ahead for good. Walker fed Northern for a layup to tie the game and then gave Port Angeles the lead with a 3-pointer. Northern extended the lead to 44-39 with another 3. From there the Riders rolled, finishing the game on a 32-18 run over the final 11 minutes. â€œWe finally stopped turning the ball over and pretty much started playing our game,â€? Hinrichs said. Poindexter credited Hinrichs and Walker with settling the Riders down.
â€œSheâ€™s become a very mature floor leader for us,â€? Poindexter said of Hinrichs. â€œAnd Macy Walker had a nice overall game, too. â€œThose two really calmed us down when we needed it.â€? Walker finished with 13 points. Northern had 12, including another timely 3-pointer after North Kitsap had trimmed Port Angelesâ€™ lead to 57-52. Poindexter said Northernâ€™s shots were the result of good execution. â€œOne of the things that I talked to them about is running our offense,â€? he said. â€œThose shots that she was hitting came out of our offensive motion and were the exact shots we were working to get. â€œWhen we were patient, we got those shots.â€?
