Body ID’d Ride to the Ridge as missing fisherman Drowning believed cause of death; no evidence of foul play By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — A badly decomposed body found on a Pacific Ocean beach near the Hoh River mouth was identified Sunday as that of missing Hoh tribal fisherman David Hudson Jr. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office late Sunday announced the positive identification. Hudson disappeared last month when he and his sister, Elva Hudson, were fishing, and the boat capsized in the river. Elva Hudson managed to reach shore, but her brother went missing. “We were able to identify the body using a photograph of a tattoo,” Sheriff Tony Hernandez said. Deputy Dave Thomas, who works on the West End for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, met with the Hudson family Sunday night and showed a picture of the tattoo on the body.

Family confirms “The family was able to positively confirm that was him,” said Chief Criminal Deputy Joe Nole. The body now will be evaluated by Prosecuting Attorney/Coroner Juelie Dalzell to officially determine the cause of death, which is believed to be drowning, Nole said. “There is no evidence of foul play, but we will evaluate it,” Nole said. Hernandez said Dalzell will determine if a DNA test is needed to confirm it is Hudson, but the family’s identification was likely sufficient. “The tattoo is pretty confirmatory,” Nole said. The body was found Thursday near the mouth of the Hoh River near the site of the historical town of Oil City. Because of its decomposition, authorities could not make independent identification. The meeting with the family originally was planned to take place Saturday night but was rescheduled for Sunday. A funeral was held for Hudson last month. His remains are being held by Kosec Funeral Home in Port Townsend. After the coroner’s evaluation, the remains will be turned over to Hudson’s family.

5-day-a-week transportation gasses up for December By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Five-day-a-week transportation is on the horizon for the upcoming all-week road to Hurricane Ridge. Adventure Tours owner Willie Nelson, the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, the city of Port Angeles and Olympic National Park are working to transport passengers to the popular snowplay spot 17 miles south of Port Angeles as part of the new effort to keep the road to the Ridge open weekdays when weather permits. Until this year, Olympic National Park kept Hurricane Ridge Road open Fridays through Sundays. A city, civic and business effort to raise $75,000 to match federal funding pays for plowing the road on the remaining days — unless falling snow precludes Justin Parker, left, pulls Trisha O’Hara and her daughter, Layla the operation until the weather clears.

Pact an interim measure By Julie McCormick

For Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Fire district and city officials are wrapping up the lengthy process needed to even out their financial relationship after rejection last spring by Port Townsend voters of a levy aimed at equal tax for equal service. The Port Townsend levy failure in April sent officials with the city and East Jefferson Fire-Rescue scrambling for a way to fix the resulting imbalance between what taxpayers outside the city limits pay for fire service versus the lesser amount still in force for city residents. The difference is 43 cents per $1,000 property valuation, and the debt has been accruing ever since. Turn

Erik Huwyler and his dog, Red, wait for a friend to stop by and take over the dog’s care for the night while his master spends at the Winter Shelter in Port Townsend.

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Winter Shelter opened its doors for the season at 4 p.m. Sunday. By 4:05, a half-dozen mostly middle-aged men in caps and bulky coats were making up their cots for the night in the basement of American Legion Hall. More stood talking to the volunteers from Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, veterans of the six-year-old program who always take the first of the 16 weeks the shelter is open. The guests helped themselves to fresh coffee, and there were cheese and crackers and muffins. A hot dinner was scheduled for 5:30. William Gawne, 48, a wiry man with mental health issues, sat on a dark green wool blanket that covered

his cot and haltingly told his story. “Here’s the truth,” said the Navy veteran. “I went to treatment, and I went to a halfway house on Thomas Street. That didn’t work out, and I just kind of ended up on the streets. “I kinda fell through the cracks.”

Personal issues People with mental health and substance abuse problems make up about 40 percent of the shelter’s guests, which last year totaled 82 over the season, said deForest Walker, the housing services director for Olympic Community Action Programs, or OlyCAP. Most are older than 40, many are frail from ill health and disabilities and 30 percent are military veterans, she said. Turn

He became known as a serious actor, although behind the camera he was a prankster. That was an aspect of his personality never exploited, however, until “Airplane!” was released in 1980 and became a huge hit. Producers-directorswriters Jim Abrahams, David and Jerry Zucker cast their newfound comic star as Detective Drebin in a TV series, “Police Squad,” which trashed the cliches of “Dragnet” and other cop shows. Despite good reviews, NBC canceled it after only four episodes. The Zuckers and Abraham converted the series into a feature film, “The Naked Gun,” with George Kennedy, O.J. Simpson and Priscilla Presley as Nielsen’s co-stars. Its huge success led to sequels “The Naked Gun 21⁄2” and “The Naked Gun 331⁄3.” His later movies included “All I Want for Christmas,” “Dracula: Dead and Loving It” and “Spy Hard.”

African American History in Chicago, one of the first museums devoted to black history and culture in the United States, died Sunday in Chicago. Her death was confirmed by her grandson, Eric Toller. Mrs. Burroughs, an artist and high school teacher, shared with her husband, Charles, an interest in history and a desire to celebrate the achievements of black Americans. In 1961, using their own collection of art and artifacts, Mr. and Mrs. Burroughs established a small museum in three rooms on the first floor of a large house they had recently bought on South Michigan Avenue. Originally called the Ebony Museum of Negro History and Art, it was renamed in 1968 to honor Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, the black settler considered the first permanent resident of what would become the city of Chicago.

Passings By The Associated Press

LESLIE NIELSEN, 84, who traded in his dramatic persona for inspired bumbling as a hapless doctor in “Airplane!” and the accident-prone detective Frank Drebin in “The Naked Gun” comedies, died Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Canadianborn actor died from complications from pneumonia at a hospital near his Mr. Nielsen home at 5:34 p.m., surrounded by his wife, Barbaree, and friends, his agent John S. Kelly said in a statement. Mr. Nielsen came to Hollywood in the mid1950s after performing in 150 live television dramas in New York. With a craggily handsome face, blond hair and 6-foot-2 height, he seemed ideal for a movie leading man. Mr. Nielsen first performed as the king of France in the Paramount operetta “The Vagabond King” with Kathryn Grayson. The film flopped, but MGM signed him to a seven-year contract. His first film for that studio was auspicious — as the space ship commander in the science fiction classic “Forbidden Planet.” He found his best dramatic role as the captain of an overturned ocean liner in the 1972 disaster movie, “The Poseidon Adventure.”

Ore. Islamic center fire feared to be retaliatory By Jonathan Cooper and Nigel Duara The Associated Press

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Someone set fire to an Islamic center Sunday, two days after a man who worshipped there was accused of trying to blow up a van full of explosives during Portland’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Other Muslims fear it could be the first volley of misplaced retribution. The charges against Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a Somali-born 19-year-old who was caught in a federal sting operation, are testing tolerance in a state that has been largely accepting of Muslims. Muslims who know the suspect said they are shocked by the allegations against him and that he had given them no hint of falling into radicalism. The fire at the Salman AlFarisi Islamic Center in Corvallis

was reported at 2:15 a.m., and evidence at the scene led authorities to believe it was set intentionally, said Carla Pusateri, a fire prevention officer for the Corvallis Fire Department. Authorities don’t know who started the blaze or why, but they believe the center was targeted because Mohamud occasionally worshipped there.

No definite link to bombing Arthur Balizan, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon, said there’s no conclusive link to the bombing in Portland or specific evidence that it’s a hate crime, other than the timing. U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton vowed to prosecute the case aggressively. “The fact is that violent extremists come from all religions and no religion at all. “For one person to blame a group, if that’s what happened here, is uniquely anti-American

and will be pursued with the full force of the Justice Department,” he said. Mohamud was being held on charges of plotting to carry out a terror attack Friday on a crowd of thousands at Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square. He is scheduled to appear in court today, and it wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer yet. On Friday, he parked what he thought was a bomb-laden van near the ceremony and then went to a nearby train station, where he dialed a cell phone that he believed would detonate the vehicle, federal authorities said. Instead, federal authorities moved in and arrested him. No one was hurt. There were also no injuries in Sunday’s fire, which burned 80 percent of the center’s office but did not spread to worship areas or any other rooms, said Yosof Wanly, the center’s imam.

Leaked American documents reveal international diplomacy By Matthew Lee

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Hundreds of thousands of State Department documents leaked Sunday revealed a hidden world of backstage international diplomacy, divulging candid comments from world leaders and detailing occasional U.S. pressure tactics aimed at hot spots in Afghanistan, Iran and North Korea. The classified diplomatic cables released by online whistle-blower WikiLeaks and reported on by news organizations in the United States and Europe provided often unflattering assessments of foreign leaders, ranging from U.S. allies such as Germany and Italy to other nations like Libya, Iran and Afghanistan. The cables also contained new revelations about long-simmering nuclear trouble spots, detailing U.S., Israeli and Arab world fears of Iran’s growing nuclear program, American concerns about Pakistan’s atomic arsenal and U.S. discussions about a united Korean peninsula as a long-term

solution to North Korean aggression. There are also American memos encouraging U.S. diplomats at the United Nations to collect detailed data about the U.N. secretary general, his team and foreign diplomats — going beyond what is considered the normal run of information-gathering expected in diplomatic circles. None of the revelations is particularly explosive, but their publication could prove problematic for the officials concerned.

Published around the world And the massive release of material intended for diplomatic eyes only is sure to ruffle feathers in foreign capitals, a certainty that prompted U.S. diplomats to scramble in recent days to shore up relations with key allies in advance of the disclosures. The documents published by The New York Times, France’s Le Monde, Britain’s Guardian newspaper, German magazine Der Spiegel and others laid out the

behind-the-scenes conduct of Washington’s international relations, shrouded in public by platitudes, smiles and handshakes at photo sessions among senior officials. The White House immediately condemned the release of the WikiLeaks documents, saying “such disclosures put at risk our diplomats, intelligence professionals and people around the world who come to the United States for assistance in promoting democracy and open government.” It also noted that “by its very nature, field reporting to Washington is candid and often incomplete information. It is not an expression of policy, nor does it always shape final policy decisions. “Nevertheless, these cables could compromise private discussions with foreign governments and opposition leaders, and when the substance of private conversations is printed on the front pages of newspapers across the world, it can deeply impact not only U.S. foreign policy interests, but those of our allies and friends around the world,” the White House said.

The next-to-last “Harry Potter” movie raised its domestic total to $220.4 million after just 10 days in theaters, according to distributor Warner Bros.

The Charleston Gazette reported Saturday that Joshua Shaffer donated $45.85 from his piggy bank to help rebuild the main station of the Sissonville Volunteer Fire Department north of Charleston. Tom Miller, with the fire department’s board of directors, said the donation underscores community support for rebuilding. He said West Virginia schoolchildren have raised more than $5,000 already.

Authorities used planes and search dogs to scour areas along the Michigan-Ohio border Sunday, hoping to find three Michigan boys who were reported missing the same day their father tried to hang himself.

When asked if Skelton was a suspect in his sons’ disappearance, Weeks said: “We haven’t ruled anything out yet.”

The pair included a huge truffle dug up in the central Tuscany region weighing about two pounds as well as one found in Molise weighing about 14 ounces. In 2007, Ho paid $330,000 for a white truffle unearthed in Tuscany weighing about 3.3 pounds.

20,000 pounds of pine boughs stolen Thieves could sell them for about $5,000 EDITOR’S NOTE: This story was posted last week at http://washingtondnr., the state Department of Natural Resources “Ear to the Ground” website. By Ear

FORKS — Holiday wreaths and garlands made from pine boughs are a wonderful sight to behold but, unfortunately, their seasonal popularity — and the opportunity to make some quick cash — can bring out the worst in a few people. The Department of Natural Resources’ Law Enforcement Services is investigating the recent theft of up to 20,000 pounds of pine boughs clipped from a 3-acre mixed stand of white pine on state trust land the department manages. A person hunting on the Department of Natural Resources North Olympic Peninsula A few of the several hundred trees near Forks about 40 miles north of stripped of their branches by thieves seeking Forks tipped off DNR as the pine boughs to sell. theft was taking place.

Thieves got away The thieves were able to leave before officers could arrive at the remote site. The cost? An estimated 20,000 pounds of boughs were taken — about $5,000 at a wholesale price of 25 cents per pound. But there’s an additional cost. Since many of the trees may not survive after having most of their branches hacked off, the lost timber may amount to an additional $19,500 at

today’s log prices. This incident, which ultimately is a cost to Washington residents, is an example of why DNR is putting more emphasis on enforcing rules for harvesting boughs and other forest products. The incident was apparently theft because the only area harvested was well hidden from a nearby road which made for a longer walk than necessary under a permitted harvest. Only immature (shorter and easier-to-reach) trees were affected and, worse, the thieves denuded many

trees, likely killing them. The permits DNR issues to commercial harvesters require them to work only in designated areas, avoid harvesting from the youngest trees and take only a limited percentage of branches from each tree. DNR had planned to lease some of the area next year when the trees would be more mature but that lease will be canceled and the revenue lost. The losers are the schools, county services and other beneficiaries of state trust land revenues.

CELIAC DISEASE AND GLUTEN FREE MEDS by Joe Cammack, R.Ph. Celiac Disease (CD) affects 1 in every 100 Americans. CD can seriously damage the small intestine, but is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Although not experienced by all persons, the most common signs and symptoms of CD include lactose intolerance, diarrhea, excessive flatulence (passing gas), abdominal pain and bloating. 80% of people with CD are sensitive to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten is also found in many medications, vitamins, processed foods and alcoholic beverages. Gluten consumption can damage villi (tiny protrusions in the small intestine that absorb nutrients), leading to malabsorption of nutrients with increased risk of immune and nervous system disorders. A gluten-free diet can improve the quality of life for many people with CD. We can compound gluten-free medications. Ask our pharmacist for more information.

at least 16 when they started, scientists reported last week. The findings led researchers at McLean Hospital to surmise that the developing teenage brain may be particularly vulnerable to the ill effects of marijuana. “We have to understand that the developing brain is not the same as the adult brain,” said Dr. Staci A. Gruber, the paper’s senior author and director of cognitive and clinical neuroimaging at McLean, a Harvard-affiliated hospital in Belmont, Mass. The study, done in conjunction with brain scans, was small, consisting of 35 chronic marijuana smokers who were 22 years old on average. The subjects were asked to complete an assessment of executive function — the brain processes responsible for planning and abstract thinking, as well as understanding rules and inhibiting inappropriate actions. The test — in which participants were asked to sort cards with different shapes, numbers and colors — is a measure of cognitive flexibility. At 15, Gruber said, the brain is still changing, and “the part that modulates executive function is the last part to develop.”

Legislature faces possible special session State lawmakers deal with the most significant budget deficit By Curt Woodward The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Republican gains, Democratic leadership shake-ups and a conservative fiscal mandate from voters will shape the way Washington’s new-look Legislature deals with its most significant budget deficit yet. That work could start early next month with a possible special legislative session to rebalance the current budget. Another round of diminished tax forecasts has plunged the state’s books back into the red, and Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire appears to be nearly out of options for fixing things within her limited authority. January’s regularly scheduled 105-day session also provides no respite, with lawmakers staring at an estimated $5.7 billion deficit in the roughly $33 billion two-year general fund. Options for plugging the hole are limited. Recession-weary voters

rejected new taxes and effectively froze revenue for two years by passing Initiative 1053. Lawmakers do have the very uncertain choice of sending a tax increase to the ballot. Meanwhile, a tidal wave of federal spending that bailed out many programs in the last two-year budget came with strings attached, leaving fewer options for cutting medical services and college spending. Although they lost members in the November elections, Democrats remain in control of both chambers. That gives them broad control of the Legislature’s agenda, from deciding which bills get heard in committee to setting the terms of the final budgetbalancing task. The minority party can have an effect, however, if its margin is close enough to build a philosophical majority on particular policies. (On the North Olympic Peninsula, incumbent state Rep. Kevin Van De Wege,

D-Sequim, was reelected to a third twoyear term. (Steve Tharinger, D-Sequim, is keeping Tharinger his seat as one of the three Clallam County commissioners while also serving in the state House as the succes- Van De sor to retir- Wege ing Rep. Lynn Kessler, D-Hoquiam. (Both Van De Wege and Tharinger beat their Republican opponents in the Nov. 2 election.)

27-22 in favor of Dems Senate Republicans made perhaps the most consequential inroads in that regard, gaining four seats by winning back suburban seats they had lost during the George W. Bush administration. That puts the Senate balance at 27-22 in favor of Democrats, with one race still headed for a recount but thought unlikely

to change. As Senate Minority Leader Mike Hewitt notes, attracting just three votes from moderate and conservative Democrats would give Republicans enough votes to get something passed or blocked in the Senate. “I’ve made it very clear to the governor and others that we’re not willing to give them any political cover if they’re not going to be serious about making this (budget) sustainable going forward,” said Hewitt, R-Walla Walla. “We’ve been asking for this now for five years.” A smaller margin isn’t the end of changes for Senate Democrats. The biggest shift is leadership of the budget-writing Ways and Means Committee, which gets a new chairman in Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle. Veteran Sen. Margarita Prentice, D-Renton, is stepping down from that post to become the chamber’s president pro tem, where she will preside over floor sessions when Lt. Gov. Brad Owen is unavailable. Murray will be the Senate’s lead budget writer, delegating less of the nitty-

gritty work than Prentice did in years past. Construction budget duties will be handled by Vice Chairman Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, who takes over for Sen. Karen Fraser, D-Olympia. Fraser is seeking to become chairwoman of the majority caucus, presiding over the Democrats’ closed strategy meetings.

Two more recounts Republicans had a bigger gap to make up in the House, where Democrats had compiled an impressive 61-member majority out of 98 seats before this year’s elections. The House GOP was able to claim an open seat in the Vancouver area, retake a Spokane-area spot and knock off three incumbent Democrats. Two of those races are heading for recounts but reversals can be difficult in legislative races because the pool of votes is so small. Republicans also count one intraparty Republican battle as a net gain: J.T. Wilcox defeated Rep. Tom Campbell, R-Roy, who acted as an independent and actually was granted a com-

mittee chairmanship by the Democrats. House Democrats have their own leadership shakeups. Rep. Pat Sullivan, D-Covington, will succeed Kessler as House majority leader — the caucus’ second-ranking position behind Speaker Frank Chopp, D-Seattle. “We’ve got to get beyond politics and get to the point where people can feel free to suggest ideas. Boy, we certainly need them,” Sullivan said. “It’s a different time and the way we do government has to be much different.” The House also could have a new budget-writer, since sitting Ways and Means Committee Chairwoman Kelli Linville, D-Bellingham, may be defeated in a very close race. House Minority Leader Richard DeBolt, R-Chehalis, echoed Hewitt’s hope for more bipartisan cooperation following the elections. “Maybe one-party control will not be so lopsided and allow for different opinions and different solutions to the problems that we face,” he said.

Washington prisoners helping save endangered frogs By Stacia Glenn

species in Washington in 1997 and currently awaits the same status on the federal list. “When they begin to disappear, it’s a sign that something is wrong with the environment,” said Dave Ellis, deputy director at Northwest Trek near Eatonville. “It’s a warning to us and by helping species like the spotted frog recover, we’re helping save the environment that is key to keeping the bigger environment we live in.” The program to boost the 2-ounce frogs dwindling population was spearheaded in 2008 by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. Eggs are gathered each winter and distributed to Cedar Creek, Northwest Trek, the Oregon Zoo in Portland and Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

Toys for Tots Ridge: Bus to make daily trips drive starts in Clallam Continued from A1

By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

If Daniel Abbott had his way, the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program would be called Toys for Tots to Teens. Abbott, Toys for Tots coordinator in Clallam County, said it’s not just the young kids whose families need help providing Christmas presents. Abbott said there are about 2,000 kids — including teenagers — in the county who will qualify for the annual holiday toy collection program. “I spend most of my time buying toys for teens,” Abbott said. The program gets toys to needy families to ensure that every kid receives a Christmas present, Abbott said.

Drop locations “We have drop locations all over the county,” Abbott said. There are 42 toy dropoff locations in Clallam County — 20 in Port Angeles, 17 in Sequim and five in Forks — where new, unwrapped toys can be dropped off. The list is available at www.port-angeles-wa. Live drop offs are staged on the weekends at the Port Angeles and Sequim

Starting in mid-December, Nelson’s 12-passenger bus will leave twice a day Wednesdays through Sundays from 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. “As it sits right now, we’ll be departing from the [visitor center] at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. and the Vern Burton at about 9:05 a.m. and 1:05 p.m.,” Nelson said. “The Vern Burton will be a good place for people because there is free parking in the city’s lot there. “We are looking at returning at about 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.” The city will be using its Chris Tucker/Peninsula Daily News senior services van for backup Numerous vehicles sit parked at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center, on days when Nelson and his located 5,242 feet above seal level, on Sunday. bus might not be available, City Manager Kent Myers road open daily, except for said. avalanche danger and “[The service’s] intention is for locals and weather closures, this winter visitors who would like to go up and spend a Begins Dec. 17 thanks to more than $75,000 The five-day transporta- in donations raised on the few hours but don’t want or can’t drive tion service will begin North Olympic Peninsula. themselves.” Dec. 17, when a “grand openThe National Park SerWillie Nelson ing” will be held at the top of vice will contribute $250,000 offering transportation service to Hurricane Ridge Hurricane Ridge to celebrate to cover the rest of the anticithe fact that the road will be pated cost. drive it, said Russ Veenema, Reservations are accepted open seven days a week.

Walmart stores. Usually, a member of the American Legion or a Marine Reserve is on hand. “Sometimes Santa Claus is there,” Abbott said. Toys for Tots has live drops at the Port Angeles Walmart Supercenter, 3471 E. Kolonels Way, the next three Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Sequim Walmart, 1110 W. Washington St., will have live drops on the next three Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cash or check donations are also accepted. Toys for Tots uses the money to buy gifts. “All money and all toys collected in Clallam County stay in Clallam County,” Abbott said. “It goes nowhere else.” At least two toys are distributed to every child who qualifies for Toys for Tots. “It started in 1947 in California by a [Marine] captain and it has mushroomed up to a full foundation,” Abbott said. Kids qualify for Toys for Tots through foster parents and a variety of organizations, including the Salvation Army, West End Outreach and Mount Pleasant Grange. “We work with a lot of organizations,” Abbott said.

Shelter: Man volunteers to stay connected every year. “I don’t know what I’d do without this place,” he said. Single women are accepted at the Winter Shelter on a temporary basis because there’s only a small separate room in the Legion’s brightly lighted downstairs room to house them, said Skip Cadorette, chairman of Community Outreach Action Shelter Team, the six-year-old crew of individuals, churches and service organizations whose sole mission is the Winter Shelter for people who are homeless. “COAST is really responsible for galvanizing this community,” said Walker.

He quit drinking a year ago and goes to regular AA meetings. He’s in Port Townsend to be near his 9-year-old daughter, who moved here from California, and has been living in his van for two years. “I do a lot of volunteer work up here because it helps me stay connected and stay sober,” said Rosser, who hopes to start up a little day-labor business with friends.

Peninsula Daily News for Monday, November 29, 2010




Ready to make some tough choices? On Nov. 19, Rasmussen Reports published results from a national telephone poll. It showed Thomas that 47 percent Friedman of America’s likely voters said the nation’s “best days are in the past,” 37 percent said they are in the future. Sixteen percent were undecided. Just before President Obama was inaugurated, 48 percent said our best days were still ahead and 35 percent said they had come and gone. This is a disturbing trend. What’s driving it? Let me say what’s not driving it. It is not that millions of Americans suddenly started worrying about the national debt. Seriously, do you know anyone who says: “I couldn’t sleep last night. I was tossing and turning until dawn worrying that the national debt was now $14 trillion.” Sorry, that only happens in contrived campaign ads. I think what is driving people’s

pessimism today are two intersecting concerns. The long-term concern is that people intuitively understand that what we need most now is nation-building in America. They understand it by just looking around at our crumbling infrastructure, our sputtering jobcreation engines and the latest international education test results that show our peers outeducating us, which means they will eventually out-compete us. Many people understand that we are slipping as a country and what they saw in Barack Obama, or what they projected onto him, was that he had both the vision and capability to pull America together behind a plan for nationbuilding at home. But I think they understand something else — that we are facing a really serious moment. We have to get this plan for nation-building right because we are driving without a spare tire or a bumper. The bailouts and stimulus that we have administered to ourselves have left us without much cushion. There may be room, and even necessity, for a little more stimulus. But we have to get this moment right. If we fail to come together and invest, spend and cut really wisely,

we’re heading for a fall — and if America becomes weak, your kids won’t just grow up in a different country, they will grow up in a different world. We have to manage America’s foreign policy, and plan its rebuilding at home, at a time when our financial resources and our geopolitical power are more limited than ever while our commitments abroad and entitlement promises at home are more extensive than ever. That is why I believe most Americans don’t want a plan for deficit reduction. The Tea Party’s vision is narrow and uninspired. Americans want a plan to make America great again, and at some level they know that such a plan will require a hybrid politics — one that blends elements of both party’s instincts. And they will follow a president — they would even pay more taxes and give up more services — if they think he really has a plan to make America great again, not just bring him victory in 2012 by 50.1 percent. That hybrid politics will require hard choices. n We need to raise gasoline and carbon taxes to discourage their use and drive the creation of a new clean energy industry, while we

Peninsula Voices Global warming A Sequim man wrote a pithy letter to the editor [“That warm feeling,” Nov. 24 PDN] to debunk global warming because, he said, “I just scooped 12 inches of global warming off of my sidewalks.” He’s right, I suppose. That 12 inches probably was “global warming,” because the records show that the alternation of La Nina (cooling) and El Nino (warming) currents in the Pacific has become more rapid and intense in recent years. In other words, global warming encompasses the present La Nina, even if this seems counter-intuitive. Rob Young, a scientist from Western Carolina University, related a personal story recently during one of his visits to the North Olympic Peninsula. His father-in-law, a global warming doubter, showed him a map he had kept in which he charted

all of his fishing holes on the Neuse River over time. Young quickly noticed that the dates showed the locations of his favorite fishing holes steadily moved up river from year to year. He told his father-in-law: “Dad, right here you have an excellent data set demonstrating global warming.” As sea water warms, it increases in volume and intrudes farther up river. I’m just saying, if the trend continues, it will become impossible to debunk global warming. The separate but important question is: What can we do? The question one five-hundred-thirtydemands consideration. John Merton Marrs, eighth of the total voters. In 2008, that number Lake Sutherland was 244,011.3513.

Yes, President Obama inherited a huge mess from the reckless Bush team. The Onion was not far off in its satirical headline at inauguration time: “Black Man Given Nation’s Worst Job.” Obama deserves much more credit than he has received for stabilizing the economy and reviving the auto industry. But the reason he hasn’t gotten it is not just because those nasty Republicans say all those nasty things about him. After all, he owns the biggest bully pulpit in the world. It’s because the 40 percent of

Americans in the middle who have determined our last two elections don’t see an integrated plan for nation-building at home that includes not only more spending but hard choices. The best thing the president could do right now is declare his support for the draft recommendations on how to reduce the country’s budget deficit just laid out by the co-chairmen of the White House’s fiscal commission, Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson. In their plan, everybody takes a hit. By doing that, Obama could seize control of the debate. The president could say that he doesn’t agree with every cut they propose and wants to add his own investments in our future. But their hybrid approach, he could explain, is the only workable course for the country right now — one he intends to use as the basis for his plan for nation-building in America so that never again will we see polls that indicate that half the country thinks our best days are behind us.

The 20 states lost a total of 8,969,283 not-countable voters. Where did they go? Can you guess? They are hidden in the 196 electoral votes of the 31 states with too many electoral votes. Their short votes are exactly the same as the 8,969,283 lost votes

in the 20 states. Washington was one of the 20 states. We lost 352,753 votes, while Idaho, with four electoral votes, had a shortage of 320,744 votes, which means that most of our lost votes are hiding in Idaho electoral votes. What is most shocking is that Florida lost 1,802,437 votes, the equivalent of seven electoral votes. In all, about 37 electoral votes are hiding in the exchanged votes. That’s enough to make three more Washington states (33) plus another Idaho with four votes. This is what the Electoral College gives us. Periodically, I shall be offering discussions on the topic under Electoral Reform Group in Clallam County. My information above is derived from Clint Jones, Sequim

Rich aren’t bad guys but should pay more MOST AMERICANS DISLIKE class-warfare talk aimed at rich people. It does not follow that Froma they don’t want Harrop the wealthiest among us to pay more taxes. Polls show they do. That puts Democrats in the mainstream on such matters. But Democrats still need a sophisticated way to discuss this, one that does not rely on simpleminded formulations pitting a “greedy rich” against an “oppressed poor.” The angry electorate that just gave Democrats a beating — largely middle class, largely white — feels besieged by what it perceives as a freeloading lower class. And many think of the poor as dark people having children out

of wedlock, living off food stamps, spending years on welfare and otherwise draining the productive members of society, that is, themselves. There’s little point in calling these folks racist. Some surely are, but one doesn’t have to be racially biased to feel uneasy at the sight of so many minority 16-year-olds with big bellies and no prospect of marriage pushing strollers through the mall. True, the “baby mama” phenomenon is growing in white America, as well — look at Bristol Palin’s star-studded single motherhood — but it’s become the norm in many black and Hispanic communities. Our post-industrial economy no longer accommodates high school dropouts, and one of the biggest drags on educational achievement is a chaotic family life. Not recognizing the culturedriven causes of poverty is intellectually dishonest and alienates middle-class voters coping with

their own economic anxieties. As for the rich, liberals too often buy into the false notion that great wealth must come at the expense of others. For example, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recently likened the United States to a banana republic where “the richest 1 percent of the population gobbles up 20 percent of the national pie.” But “the economy is not a national pie eating contest,” as Dartmouth economist Andrew Samwick smartly responded on the Capital Gains and Games website ( “The phrase casts income as something that is consumed, not as something that is produced.” Meanwhile, most super-rich Americans committed no fraud in building their piles. “Do I feel oppressed that I made Steve Jobs richer by buying an iPad?” Samwick asks. “Of course not.” That doesn’t mean that billionaires should be able to

buy elections. It doesn’t mean that hedgefund managers deserve outrageous tax loopholes. It doesn’t mean that financiers should be allowed to hobble Securities and Exchange Commission rules, then demand taxpayer bailouts when their risky deals collapse. And it doesn’t mean that raising these people’s taxes to help reduce deficits is anything but a fine idea. Taxes must go up, and the higher the income, the less personal sacrifice in paying them. That’s the reasoning behind our progressive income tax system. Any resulting “wealth redistribution” is a byproduct. Many conservatives have adopted an unpleasant strain of servility toward the rich. (No, they don’t hire us as a charitable gesture.) But liberals shouldn’t answer the worshipping of wealth with a demonizing of it. What Democrats should say to

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck celebrates after defeating Oregon State 38-0 in Stanford, Calif., on Saturday.

Stanford big poll winner By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Stanford was the big winner in the latest BCS standings. The Cardinal, along with Wisconsin, all but locked up bids to the Bowl Championship Series, and Oklahoma earned a spot in the Big 12 title game by outpointing Oklahoma State and Texas A&M on Sunday. Auburn and Oregon also switched places at the top of the standings, with the Tigers slipping by the Ducks into first place — but that hardly matters. Both are still on track to play for the national championship on Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. Auburn needs to beat South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday to lock up its spot and Oregon needs a victory at Oregon State in the Civil War rivalry. The only difference between one and two in the BCS is No. 1 gets to wear its home jerseys. TCU is third and in position to grab an automatic bid — possibly to the Rose Bowl — now that Boise State is no threat to swipe it from the Horned Frogs. The Broncos lost to Nevada 34-31 in overtime on Friday night. TCU is also on-deck for a spot in the national championship game if one of the top two teams trip up.

Biggest jump of all But Stanford made the most important jump of all this week, taking the fourth spot after completing its season 11-1 with a 38-0 victory against Oregon State. BCS rules ensure the top four teams in the final standings a bid to the five big-money games. Stanford was in danger of getting left out altogether because its fans generally don’t flock to long-distance bowl sites. As long as the Cardinal don’t fall when the final standings are released next week — and there’s no good reason why they would — one of the bowls will be forced to take them. The BCS standings also broke the Big Ten’s three-way tie at the top in favor of Wisconsin, which is fifth in the standings, a spot ahead of Ohio State. Unless some strange voting takes place in the Harris and coaches’ polls after Championship Saturday, the Badgers are headed to the Rose Bowl. The Buckeyes are a good bet to land an at-large bid, but the Big Ten’s other tri-champion, Michigan State, will have to settle for a second-tier game. The Spartans were eighth in the BCS standings. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M finished tied at 6-2 in the Big 12 South, but the BCS tiebreaker went the Sooners’ way. Oklahoma was ninth in the standings, Oklahoma State was 14th and Texas A&M was 18th. Turn

Chiefs stomp Hawks Carroll: ‘We played like garbage out there’ By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Six years later, Matt Cassel got a chance to show Pete Carroll firsthand how good he can be as a starter. With the help of Dwayne Bowe and Kansas City’s run game, Cassel and the Chiefs made it look easy. Cassel tied his career high with four touchdown passes, three of them to Bowe, and the Chiefs stayed on top of the AFC West with an impressive 42-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The Chiefs completely dominated the Seahawks both offensively and defensively. “We played like garbage out there,” Carroll said. “That’s what it is.” And if his day wasn’t complete, Cassel added a 6-yard TD pass to tight end Tony Moeaki late in the fourth quarter. It was the final indignity for a Seattle defense that was shredded for more than 500 total yards for the third time this season. “I would say just footballwise that is the worst anyone could play on defense, 200 yards on the ground alone, that’s just the worst game ever,” Seattle linebacker Aaron Curry said.

Federer beats Nadal in ATP final No. 2 men’s player captures fifth season-ending title 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 The Associated Press

LONDON — Roger Federer turned his high-profile, seasonending match against Rafael Nadal into little more than an exhbition. Federer gave his rival little chance to mount a challenge in the 22nd meeting between two of the greatest players of all time, winning his fifth season-ending title 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 at the ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday. Federer won an incredible 92 percent of the points played on his first serve in the final, and lost only 13 points on serve in the entire match. “I was able to stay offensive. Rallies were never that long,” said Federer, who has won the season-ending tournament in Houston, Shanghai and London. “That kind of maybe frustrated him.” Nadal, the top-ranked Spaniard who won the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open

this year, was able to break Federer once in the second set, but he appeared to tire as the match wore on. On Saturday, Nadal spent more then three hours and three sets beating Andy Murray to reach the final of the tournament for the first time in his career. “I know I didn’t spoil his vacation after this because he’s had an amazing year,” Federer said. “A year that any player dreams of.” The win cut Nadal’s career record to 14-8 against the secondranked Swiss player. In Grand Slam finals, Nadal is 5-2 against Federer, but Federer has now beaten Nadal all three times they have faced each other in the final tournament of the season. In the first set Sunday at the The Associated Press O2 Arena, Federer lost only three Switzerland’s Roger Federer returns the ball to points on his serve, and broke Spain’s Rafael Nadal during the singles final tennis Nadal once. match at the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 Arena in Turn

Chargers rip Indianapolis The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — San Diego’s defense gave Peyton Manning another night to forget. The Chargers picked off Manning four times, returning two for scores, in a 36-14 win Sunday that handed Indianapolis its most lopsided home loss since the four-time MVP has been the team’s starting quarterback. The last time the Colts lost by this much at home was Sept. 14, 1997, when Seattle won 31-3. San Diego (6-5) won its fourth straight and kept pace in the AFC West race, one game behind Kansas City. “It’s dedication to the system and tremendous on everyone’s part,” Chargers running back Mike Tolbert said, referring to the Chargers’ playoff push. “We’re not pressured at

all [to win], we’re just trying to get better next week than we are today.” They certainly looked good Sunday. Manning finished 31-of48 for 285 yards with two TDs and has thrown seven interceptions in the last two weeks — the most over any two-week span in his 13-year NFL career. Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne walked off the field after getting hurt with 2:45 to go, and the Colts (6-5) finished with only 24 yards rushing. The Colts lost their second straight but are still tied with Jacksonville for the AFC South lead, and it was every bit as ugly as the score appeared. Fans started leaving en masse when the Colts committed their fourth of five turnovers, Javarris James’ fumble early in the fourth quarter. It also officially ends the

Colts’ league record run of seven straight 12-win seasons. The Chargers defense, meanwhile, was stifling. “We just weren’t sharp,” coach Jim Caldwell said. “They had 20 points off turnovers and we had five of them. That’s uncharacteristic for us.” Kevin Burnett returned Manning’s first pick 29 yards for a score. Eric Weddle matched that with a 41-yard return in the third quarter that broke open the game. And the Chargers shut out Indy for the final 30 minutes. Philip Rivers was 19-of23 for 185 yards with no touchdowns and, most important, no interceptions. Tolbert rushed 26 times for 103 yards and scored on a 3-yard run early in the fourth quarter to seal the victory that put San Diego above the .500 mark for the first time all season.

36-yard TD in the second when Seattle’s secondary blew coverage. The pair hooked up one more time in the fourth quarter when Cassel threw a quick slant to Bowe for a 9-yard TD, sending much of Qwest Field to the exits. “I’m just impressed each

and every week. I find myself looking for him more and more and more,” Cassel said. Notes: Seattle’s leading receiver Mike Williams (foot) was inactive. Carroll said Williams couldn’t cut properly during his pregame workout.

Seattle CB Marcus Trufant left in the first quarter with an ankle injury. It was initially announced Trufant was out, but he returned in the second quarter and played the rest of the game. Cassel has three games this season with a passer rating above 120.

Trufant leaves game with injury The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant left Sunday’s game against Kansas City with a leg injury suffered in the first quarter, but returned late in the second quarter. Trufant was hurt on a 2-yard run by Thomas Jones

late in the first quarter. He initially rolled around holding his left leg and was tended to by trainers before a cart was brought on the field to take him to the locker room. The Seahawks did not announce which leg or the specifics of Trufant’s injury,

but initially said he was out for the game. With 3:50 left in the half and after going through tests on the sideline, Trufant returned to the game. Trufant started on Sunday despite suffering a concussion last week against New Orleans.

Texans shut out Titans 20-0 The Associated Press

HOUSTON — Andre Johnson finally had enough from Cortland Finnegan, sparking a fistfight that led to both players being ejected and could end up in further discipline from the NFL. The Texans snapped a four-game losing streak while Johnson and Finnegan were ejected for their fight in the fourth quarter of a 20-0 Houston win over Tennessee on Sunday. Arian Foster rushed for 143 yards and caught nine passes for the Texans (5-6), who posted their first shutout since 2004. Midway through the fourth quarter, Finnegan set it off by pushing up Johnson’s face mask at the line of scrimmage. Johnson ripped off Finnegan’s helmet and landed at least two punches to Finnegan’s head and neck. Finnegan tore off Johnson’s helmet before players and referees intervened. The game was halted for more than five minutes as officials sorted out the chaos. Johnson received a standing ovation as security guards escorted him off the field. Finnegan taunted booing fans as he exited out the opposite tunnel. The incident came at the end of a tumultuous week for the Titans (5-6), who’ve lost four in a row. Houston cornerback Glover Quin set a franchise record with three interceptions off Titans rookie quarterback Rusty Smith, who struggled in his first career start in replacing the injured Vince Young. Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger was on the sideline calling plays after he was diagnosed with cancer this week. He’s due to start chemotherapy today.

Steelers 19, Bills 16 OT ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Shaun Suisham kicked a 41-yard field goal with 2:14 left in overtime to lift the Steelers. Buffalo (2-9) blew an opportunity to win it with 10:30 left in overtime. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson got in behind the Steelers secondary but dropped a 40-yard pass on the run, while he was 2 yards into the end zone. The Bills overcame a 13-point first-half deficit and forced overtime with 2 seconds left in regulation when Rian Lindell hit a 49-yard field goal. Rashard Mendenhall had 151 yards rushing and scored a 1-yard touchdown, while Suisham hit all four field-goal attempts, including a 48-yarder in a game the Steelers (8-3) never trailed.

The Rams had a seemingly safe 33-13 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the Broncos (3-8) pulled within three points on Brandon Lloyd’s TD catch from Kyle Orton with 2:35 remaining. The Rams (5-6) held on and now share first place in the NFC West with Seattle, which lost to Kansas City. Bradford was 22-of-37 for 308 yards.

The Townsend family of Port Angeles stumbled upon this peculiarly shaped mushroom while traipsing around the Sol Duc Valley this fall. The mushroom, which was unidentified, bares a distinct resemblance to Franklin the Turtle of cartoon fame. It is the winner of the “Mushroom most resembling a notable figure” category.

Pat-downs enhanced, but hardly thorough TSA agent fails to find coins, keys in passenger’s pocket By Ariel Kaminer The New York Times

NEW YORK — It does not take much to come face to face — or hand to buttock — with the controversial inner cordon of our nation’s antiterrorist strategy. You don’t have to break into Langley or crack open an encrypted file. All you have to do is snake your way through the airport security line, then step up to the person monitoring the metal detector or the full-body scanner and say, “Manual, please.” A stoic Transportation Security Administration employee (male or female, in accordance with your gender) will snap on a pair of latex gloves and brace himself or herself for yet another encounter with the public’s privates.

Firsthand experience Last week at Kennedy International Airport, as I went — ticket in hand — to experience it for myself, a uniformed officer informed me that she would be patting me down from head to toe, using a new enhanced technique. On “sensitive areas” — the breasts, buttocks and groin — she would use the back of her hand. Did I have any metal objects in my pockets? No. Would I prefer a private screening area? No. Then the officer’s hands did as she warned me they would. They poked around the back of my collar, they extended along my shoulders, they ran up and down

to up the ante and headed back to the tail end of the security line to see if a second inspector might be any more perceptive. Up ahead of me a family of elderly Hasidic Jews was preparing for a pat-down. The ancient-looking patriarch, in a wheelchair, was first. When a female security officer instructed him to remove his belt, he looked up, confused. So she leaned down and, unbuckling it for him, removed it. With his eyebrows raised in disbelief and his pants hanging half open, he was wheeled to the left for further inspection.

my arms, they smoothed down my back, they slid inside the back waistband of my pants and they glided down my butt. The officer bent down, and I felt her hands skate up the back of my left thigh — all the way up — and then do the same on my right. Then she rose, came around in front of me, and began again.

‘Freaking out’ As she acquainted herself with the precise topography of my bra, it seemed a fitting moment to get to know each other a bit. “I bet people are freaking out about this,” I said. It wasn’t much of a bet. Those freakouts — by passengers who were subjected to the new screening techniques, by passengers who have never been and want to keep it that way, by elected officials — had already gone viral. A “National Opt-Out Day” had already been scheduled for the day before Thanksgiving to protest the full-body scanners. (It wasn’t successful, according the TSA, with only a minority nationwide opting purposely for the pat-downs.)

Accomplishes little?

His wife, meanwhile, standing unstably on her own two feet, was guided to the right, where in full view of everyone she was treated to the same humiliation techniques. Critics have derided some of the showier aspects of airport security as “security theater,” something that looks impressive but accomplishes little. If so, the invasion of an old woman’s personal space has got to count as security theater of the absurd. I watched in squirming discomfort. Her son averted his eyes. And the rest of the world buzzed by, oblivious, grumbling about luggage fees and seating assignments as they bustled off to Rochester, Miami or Oakland.

ers, set against the no-nonsense atmosphere of the modern airport? After those encounters, the participants head to the bar for a brandy. After mine, the officer tested her latex gloves for traces of dangerous substances, and I, cleared of suspicion, headed to the Cibo Express Gourmet Market for a yogurt. Reaching into my pocket to pay, I found metal objects (keys and coins) that the pat-down had missed. 8 trips through security Oh, well. I exited the secure area, All told, I submitted to put a battery in my pocket the security agency’s 10-fin-

gered salutation eight times in one day — enough to win the respect of George Clooney’s character in “Up in the Air.” Some officers began their work with a lengthy preamble; others were terse. Some seemed grateful for a little friendly conversation; others appeared on guard.

Accessing the issues And some took their time, covering every square inch of my person, while others finished quickly. All of the officers reassured me they would use the back of their hand on those sensitive areas. Who cares, really? A hand is a hand, even when it’s attached to the long arm of the law. It’s amazing how quickly the pat-down evolves from shocking indignity to banal hassle, just like padding around barefoot while your pants fall down and your toothpaste tube gets the third degree, something airline travelers have been experiencing for years now.

Inconvenience worth it The inconvenience is worth it, of course, if it works — if it uncovers potential dangers before they board a plane. That’s what a spokesman for the TSA informed me, afterward, the officers’ job was: to assess whether I posed a threat to aviation. He would not comment on whether that should have included checking out the objects hidden in my pocket. All I know is I went through the line eight times and not a single inspector noticed them.

Does smoking cigarettes actually relieve stress? Studies find opposite to be true The New York Times

NEW YORK — The benefits of quitting smoking — reduced risk of cancer and many other health problems — are known.

But for millions of smokers, the calming effect of a cigarette can be reason enough to start up again. Studies have found, however, that in reality, lighting up has the opposite effect,

causing long-term stress levels to rise, not fall. For those dependent on smoking, the only stress it relieves is the withdrawal between cigarettes. In a recent study conducted at the London School of Medicine and Dentistry,

Other studies have also found that smokers experience higher levels of stress and tension between cigarettes and lower levels over all when they quit. The bottom line, according to the studies: The calming effect of a cigarette is a myth, at least in the long term.

Canadian Coast Guard unready for oil spill Audit exposes a lack of training, aging equipment news services

OTTAWA — The Canadian Coast Guard lacks the training, equipment and management systems to fulfill its duties to respond to offshore pollution incidents such as oil spills, an internal audit reveals. The audit paints a sobering picture of an agency that would play a key role in Canada’s response to a major oil spill off the world’s longest coastline. In the event of a spill leaking from a ship, as occurred in 1989 when the Exxon Valdez ran aground off the coast of Alaska, the Coast Guard would be the lead federal agency in the cleanup efforts. However, the audit found Coast Guard employees are trained on an “ad hoc, regional basis,” with no national training strategy. Meanwhile, the Coast Guard is relying on aging equipment — the operating status of which it is unable to track — and manage-

ment controls are “either out-of-date, not functioning or not in place.” “As such, assurance cannot be provided that the conditions exist to enable [environmental-response] services to be provided in a national consistent manner,” states the audit, which was completed just more than a month before an explosion at BP’s Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico unleashed the biggest offshore oil spill in history this spring.

Lead agency Under Canada’s patchwork response regime, the lead agency would depend on the nature and location of a spill. Off the East Coast, joint federal-provincial petroleum boards would oversee the cleanup of a spill at a drilling rig, while the National Energy Board would handle that responsibility in Arctic waters. But the Coast Guard would take the lead in any

Currently, the star and its planet are in the Milky Way. The star has a low metallicity, which is a measure of elements other than hydrogen and helium. An abundance of metal is thought to help planets form, so it is surprising the star has only about 1 percent of the metallicity of our sun. “Metal helps form planetary embryos, and you need an embryo for the

pay them any attention, they’re always at the end of the line for any budget,” said Rob Huebert, associate director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary. Huebert said the federal government should consider arming the Coast Guard with better spill-response tools, given the fact that offshore drilling and tanker traffic is expected to intensify in Canada’s Arctic waters. Several oil companies have acquired licenses to explore for oil in Canada’s portion of the Beaufort Sea, although drilling isn’t expected to take place for at least a few years. A spokeswoman for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which is responsible for the Coast Guard, said the audit’s recommendations have been “incorporated into the environmental response work plan. “Work has started on many of the initiatives and we remain on target for completion,” the spokeswoman said in a statement. The Coast Guard recently acquired 20 new “environmental response barges,” she added.

feed your creativity. 4 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t waste time arguing about something you cannot change. Be prepared for whatever comes your way and realize that responding, instead of reacting, will bring you much closer to getting what you want. A tight budget is a must. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Impulsive action due to emotional upset will not pay off in the end. Concentrate more on work and productivity and less on spending money. Face any challenge with confidence and play to win. Avoid useless arguments. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stay put. You will only make matters worse if you push your way in where you don’t belong. Travel and communications will not be your strong point. Challenging circumstances are apparent and remaining calm is essential. 2 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll have to juggle things around if you don’t want to upset the people with whom you spend most of your time. An emotional matter will catch you off guard but that doesn’t mean you should let anyone take advantage of you. Act fast, but not in anger. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Caution must be maintained, especially where institutions and financial matters are concerned. Look after your own statements and personal paperwork if you want to make sure that everything is taken care of properly before year’s end. 5 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There will be a lot of information left unsaid. Dig deep before you make a decision. You have to be fully aware of what is going on behind the scenes. An old friend can give you an intuitive look at what you should be aware of. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have to dedicate time, space and your skills to something that will help you make gains financially, legally or contractually. Don’t be afraid to speak up in your defense. Timing is crucial. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A greater understanding regarding your position and how far you can go in the future will help you determine if you should make a move now or stay put. Humanitarian causes will lead to new friendships and a chance to make self improvements. 5 stars

Rose is Rose

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look over all the information made available before you react harshly to something or someone. Unnecessary purchases may be a quick fix for depression but, in the end, will only add to debt. Hard work and innovation are your best solutions. 2 stars


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Focus on home, family and keeping a stellar reputation. Consider any responsibilities thrown at you to be a test that allows you to show off and impress others. The way you handle situations will lead to a position in the

We will absorb much of the increase, and minimize the price adjustments to our video products and services. Some fees and taxes may also be adjusted at this time. Further details, including money-saving bundle options, will be included in your January bill statement. Thank you for choosing Wave Broadband. 1-866-WAVE-123 Pub: Nov. 29, 2010
