Loggers remain opposed to bill adding wilderness BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
A new analysis commissioned by the Wild Olympics Campaign has concluded that proposed legislation to declare as wilderness 198 square miles of Olympic National Forest would have a negligible effect on logging and would not cause job losses.

helicopter yarding is used, Derek Churchill of Stewardship Forestry Consulting of Seattle said in the $1,500 report. But more land is available for commercial harvesting than is now harvested, he said. â€œThe Olympic National Forest could significantly increase the current rate of harvesting by focusing on suitable acres outside of the proposed wilderness for the next 50 years,â€? Churchill said in the report. â€œThe proposed wilderness within the Wild Olympics legislation will not limit timber supply
under the current management policy framework, and thus should not result in reduced harvesting or timber jobs.â€? The legislation would designate 126,544 acres as new wilderness, set aside 5,346 additional acres that could be designated as wilderness in the future and name 19 rivers and seven tributaries as wild and scenic. Churchillâ€™s report, released Tuesday, updates his previous study on the earlier Wild Olympic proposal, which would have set aside 132,000 acres as wilderness. TURN TO WILD/A6

Plastic ban now in effect; paper sacks cost 5 cents BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The cityâ€™s single-use plastic-bag ban went into effect Thursday, requiring stores and some of their customers to change their shopping habits. The ban requires retail stores to discontinue use of flimsy plastic bags and instead supply paper bags to customers who lack reusable bags and charge 5 cents for each paper bag, which will be used to defray the cost of the program.
In favor of the change â€œI already use all my own bags, so I donâ€™t have any problem,â€? said Heather Gilden of Port Hadlock as she shopped at Safeway in Port Townsend. Stacey Larsen of Port Townsend said she favors the change. â€œI never use plastic bags and usually bring my own cloth bags, although I forgot them today,â€? she said as she carried out her three items by hand. Supporters believe plastic is harmful to the environment and hope the ban will encourage people to acquire reusable shopping bags instead of relying on the stores to provide paper bags. Lianna Conklin of Port Townsend, another Safeway customer, isnâ€™t convinced the ban will serve its intended purpose. TURN

Police: Actor knew man he slapped ACTOR GENE HACKMAN had given clothes, money and rides to a homeless man whom he slapped this week after the man became aggressive toward the Oscar-winning actor and his wife, according to a police report detailing the incident in Santa Fe, N.M. Police said Hackman acted in selfdefense, and no charges have been filed. Hackman told Hackman officers he had helped Bruce Becker, 63, for several years, and Becker told a similar story. But their versions of the actual physical confrontation diverge, with Hackman saying he slapped the man once, and Becker saying he was hit 10 to 12 times by the tough-guy actor.

Amy Winehouse’s charity said two of the late singer’s dresses — including her wedding dress — are missing and believed stolen from her former London home. The Amy Winehouse Foundation said Thursday that the dress Winehouse wore for her 2006 Miami wedding to Blake FielderCivil and a newsprint cocktail dress she wore during a British TV appearance are both missing. The presumed theft was discovered during an inventory. The wedding dress was to have been auctioned off for the charity, established to help young people overcome addiction. The singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, told the Evening Standard it was “sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value.”

Earlier this year, President Barack Obama had planned to give the couple a public acknowledgement during a campaign appearance in southern Nevada, but they were unable to attend. Family members said they met the president during a later visit.

Passings BILL DEES, 73, emerged from his days as an out-of-cash young songwriter to pen tunes recorded by Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and other country music greats, but the centerpiece of his career was his work with Roy Orbison, including cowriting the classic rock hit “Oh, Pretty Woman.” Mr. Dees, who died in Mountain Home, Ark., last week, had said writing that song with Orbison in 1964 changed his life. In a 2008 interview with National Public Radio, Mr. Dees recalled that the night they penned the hit song, Orbison told him he wouldn’t need to go to work that Monday if he didn’t want to. “He said, ‘Buy yourself an electric piano, and I’ll take you on the road with me.’ And he said, ‘I’ll pay you what the band’s getting,’” Mr. Dees said during the NPR interview, which is posted on Mr. Dees’ website. He went on to tour Europe and perform on “The Ed Sullivan Show” with Orbison, with whom he also co-wrote numerous other songs, including “It’s Over,” which also was a No. 1 hit.

A3 Briefly: Nation Illinois woman admits stabbing two children WHEATON, Ill. — A suburban Chicago woman stabbed her 7-year-old son 100 times then turned the knife on a 5-year-old girl who witnessed the killing, as both children begged for their lives, a prosecutor said Thursday. Elzbieta Plackowska, 40, told investigators she stabbed the children and slashed their throats Tuesday night at the home in Plackowska Naperville because she was angry with her husband, a truck driver who was often away, DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said. “She told the detectives that she thought by killing Justin, she would make her husband hurt the way she hurt in their relationship,” Berlin said. Plackowska told investigators she found Justin and Olivia Dworakowski — whom she was baby-sitting that night — jumping on the bed, Berlin said. “She made both victims kneel and begin praying. She began stabbing her son, Justin, and told him he was going to heaven,” he said. Plackowska killed Olivia because she had witnessed the attack on Justin, Berlin said.
Campaign blitz ROANOKE, Va. — President Barack Obama, Republican rival Mitt Romney, their wives and running mates were blitzing across the country in the busiest day of campaign events yet.

During a stop in Roanoke, Va., Romney criticized Obama’s suggestion that he would create a secretary of business. The crowd replied with applause and chants of “Five more days!” In New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed Obama on Thursday, saying he believes Obama is a leader on climate change, which Bloomberg suggested was a contributor to the damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy this week.

Ex-Penn State leader charged in abuse case Spanier hushed up complaints against former coach, AG says THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
HARRISBURG, Pa. — Former Penn State President Graham Spanier was charged Thursday with hushing up child sex-abuse complaints against Jerry Sandusky, taking the allegations of a “conspiracy of silence” to the highest level of the university and marking another chapter in the dramatic downfall of a oncerenowned administrator. Prosecutors also added counts against two of his former underlings, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, who were already charged with lying to the grand jury that investigated the former assistant football coach. “This was not a mistake by these men. This was not an oversight. It was not misjudgment on their part,” said state Attorney General Linda Kelly.
THE UNIVERSITY OF Southern California campus reopened Thursday after being shut down following a shooting at a Halloween costume party that left one man critically injured, three wounded and two in custody. The shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday outside the Ronald Tutor Campus Center, where a line of people waited to be checked into the party held by the Black Student Assembly. A short time later, two men were apprehended by campus police and turned over to Los Angeles police, said LAPD Officer Sara Faden. Investigators were still interviewing the men at midmorning, Faden said.
Charges called vindictive “These charges are the work of a vindictive and politically motivated governor working through an unelected attorney general . . . whom he appointed to do his bidding,” the defense lawyers wrote. Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley said the defense statement “sounds like the ranting of a desperate man.” Curley and Schultz have
Sandy death toll climbs to 80; 4.6 million still without power THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Three days after Sandy slammed the midAtlantic and the Northeast, New York and New Jersey struggled to get back on their feet, the U.S. death toll climbed to more than 80, and more than 4.6 million homes and businesses were still without power. The total damage from superstorm Sandy could run as high as $50 billion, according to the forecasting firm Eqecat. That would make it the second-costliest storm in U.S. history after Hurricane Katrina. Nearly 20,000 people remain stranded in their homes by floodwaters in Hoboken, N.J., and swaths of the New Jersey coastline lay in ruins, with countless homes, piers and boardwalks wrecked.

“This was a conspiracy of silence by top officials to actively conceal the truth.” Spanier’s lawyers issued a statement asserting his innocence and described the new charges as an attempt by Gov.

repeatedly asserted they are innocent. A spokeswoman for their lawyers said they planned to respond later to the new charges. At a Capitol news conference, Kelly said all three men “knowingly testified falsely and failed to provide important information and evidence.” Spanier was charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. Curley and Schultz face new charges of endangering the welfare of children, obstruction and conspiracy. The charges were filed with a suburban Harrisburg district judge, whose office said Curley and Schultz were expected to be arraigned this afternoon and Spanier tentatively scheduled to appear Wednesday. Sandusky, who spent decades on the Penn State staff and was defensive coordinator during two national championship seasons, was convicted in June of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.

said it was on track to restore power by Saturday in Manhattan, where a quarter-million customers were without electricity. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said meals and bottled water would be distributed in around the city through the weekend. The death toll in New York City alone was close to 40. Police on Thursday said two brothers, ages 2 and 4, who were swept away Monday night when
waves of water crashed into an SUV driven by their mother in Staten Island were found dead. Meanwhile, some scientists said that the vast destruction wreaked by the storm surge in New York could have been prevented with a sea barrier of the type that protects cities in Europe. The multibillion-dollar price tag of such a project has been a hindrance but may appear more palatable after the damage from Sandy has been tallied. Oceanography professor Malcolm J. Bowman of Long Island’s Stony Brook University warned for years of the potential for a catastrophic storm surge in New York and advocated for a barrier. Invited by Bowman and his colleague Douglas Hill, two European engineering firms have drawn up proposals for walling most of New York off from the sea, at a price just above $6 billion.

World: Israel admits slaying deputy of Arafat’s in 1988
RHODE ISLAND’S ECONOMIC development agency Thursday sued former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and some of its former officials in connection with a $75 million loan guarantee to his failed video game company. The suit was filed in Rhode Island Superior Court four months after 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy after a spectacular collapse. The board of the Economic Development Corp. in 2010 lured 38 Studios to Providence from Massachusetts with the loan guarantee. The suit also names former EDC Executive Director Keith Stokes; Michael Saul, a former top EDC official; and two law firms that worked with the agency.
LIFTING A NEARLY 25-year veil of secrecy, Israel acknowledged Thursday that it killed the deputy of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in a 1988 seaborne raid in Tunisia. Two of those involved in the operation now hold high political office — Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Vice Premier Moshe Yaalon. At the time, Barak was deputy military chief, and Yaalon was head of the Sayeret Matkal unit. Israel has long been suspected of assassinating Khalil al-Wazir, betterknown by his nom de guerre Abu Jihad. But only now has the country’s military censor cleared the Yediot Ahronot daily to publish the information.

Singh has now closed all of the stores, according to Byron Roselli, who represented Singh in the purchases.
PORT TOWNSEND — A sign stating that a Hooters restaurant was slated to open in the location of the recently vacated Port Townsend Liquor Store was a joke perpetuated by the property owner. Ken McBride, who owns the Lighthouse Shopping Center and rented the property to the liquor store, said he was surprised and disappointed when the store vacated the premises last weekend but thought he’d have a little fun. He had a friend create a sign with the Hooters logo and posted it on the storefront Tuesday. “I got a lot of calls about this, and a lot of people told me it made their day,” McBride said. “They all knew it was a ________ joke.” Not everyone was sure it CHARLIE BERMANT/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS Jefferson County Reporter Charwas a joke, and the sign — lie Bermant can be reached at 360and the idea that such a 385-2335 or at charlie.bermant@ Port Townsend is not getting a Hooters restaurant, despite the sign that was up for three days this week.

7-day term advocated in mail embezzlement
PA driver involved in wreck that killed Moses Lake man BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ
Ex-postal worker to be sentenced Jan. 18 BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
TACOMA — A seven-day sentence in federal prison has been recommended for a Port Angeles man who pleaded guilty to stealing mail when he was a Sequim postal worker. Kevin M. Brown, 51, will be sentenced Jan. 18 after pleading guilty Oct. 5 in federal District Court in Tacoma to one felony count of embezzlement of mail by a postal employee, according to court records. He also must pay restitution to victims from whom numerous items of mail were stolen, including two $200 Walmart gift cards, according to his plea agreement. “He has clearly accepted responsibility for his offense,” according to the agreement. “Defendant recognizes the United States has
agreed not to prosecute all of the criminal charges the evidence establishes were committed to him solely because of the promises made by him in this agreement,” the document said. Brown’s attorney, Corey Endo of the federal Public Defenders Office, did not return a call requesting comment Thursday.
Conditions of release Conditions of Brown’s release on his own recognizance include a requirement that he attend a 12-step program for gamblers; undergo a mental health, psychological or psychiatric evaluation; and follow the treatment recommendations of that evaluation. Brown could have been sentenced to up to five years in prison and been fined up to $250,000. Most mail theft cases are misdemeanors, said Emily
e t of the Season a r b Cee le agic Holiday th M
Langlie, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle. “It is being treated seriously,” she said Thursday. “Seven days may not seem like much, but seven in a federal prison is significant for someone who has never been in a federal prison.” Brown began working for the U.S. Postal Service on Jan. 22, 2005, and worked at the Sequim post office from Jan. 20, 2007, to March 15, 2012, as a front counter clerk selling stamps, money orders and other Postal Service items. “Brown used his position at the Sequim post office to gain access to, embezzle and intentionally steal numerous items from the United States mail,” according to the plea agreement. He stole gift cards, cash, collectors’ coins “and other items of value,” the plea agreement said. They included two insured envelopes that each contained $200 Walmart gift cards that he redeemed in Poulsbo, according to the agreement. Assistant U.S. Attorney C. Andrew Colasurdo prosecuted the case.

Clallam sheriff asks for 2 part-time deputies Additions would go toward extra security for courtrooms BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict has asked for two part-time deputies to enhance courtroom security. The 2013 budget request was made Thursday when Sheriff’s Office officials met with the three county commissioners, County Administrator Jim Jones and Budget Director Kay Stevens. “It’s just for coverage because we have only one person now who’s responsible for covering as many as five courts that could be in session at the same time” at the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles, Benedict said after the meeting. If the $80,000 request is approved, the county would hire a pair of part-timers to initially backfill at the jail. The idea is to free up trained corrections officers to help courtroom-court-
house Security Deputy Gary Gorss cover the Superior Court, District Court, Family Court and Juvenile Court. On Monday, Superior Court judges renewed their request for a courthouse security checkpoint station. During that meeting, it was said that Benedict had proposed a single point-ofentry with a metal detector for the top floor of the courthouse — where several courtrooms are located and which is accessible by two main entrances — in addition to the part-time deputies.
Routine screenings But the sheriff Thursday said he never proposed a single point-of-entry and that he remains opposed to routine metal-detector screenings such as those conducted by the Transportation Security Administration in airports.
“I am inflexible in terms of setting up TSA-style screening,” Benedict said. “I don’t Benedict think that’s a solution to the problem. I think that’s an expense that I’m certainly not willing to bear, and I don’t think the taxpayers want to bear it, either.” Benedict added: “My solution to any real or perceived security problems for the courtrooms is the funding of two part-time corrections deputies to give me the manpower to put an armed, trained officer in every court of record when it is conducting criminal calendars, as well as the family courts. “So it’s my goal to do that,” he said. Commissioner Mike Doherty asked Jones to meet with the judges and Benedict to work out the details. In the Monday meeting with the judges, Jones said
the county could absorb the cost of hiring two part-time deputies because of conservative estimates on timber and sales tax revenue. Security has been a hot topic at the courthouse since a March incident in which a Grays Harbor County sheriff’s deputy was attacked and shot with her own sidearm at the courthouse in Montesano. The deputy, Polly Davin, was not seriously injured and returned to work shortly after the incident.
Security committee Last spring, a Clallam County security committee was formed at the request of the three Superior Court judges to look for ways to improve security for the entire courthouse, not just the courtrooms. Committee members in September made suggestions that ranged from parttime deputies to an airportlike metal detector at a single point-of-entry for the entire building. “If we say we’re going to have a single point-of-entry for upstairs, we still have
two other courts, and we also have the traffic court that we hold in Sequim,” Benedict said. “Why shouldn’t they have single-point entry? It could quickly blossom into something that could approach $1 million a year to run.”
he said. Jail Superintendent Ron Sukert said the part-time deputies would provide good flexibility for scheduling. Benedict said he envisions the part-timers working a total of about 40 hours per week. As for a single-point screening, Doherty said it is important to have open access to a courthouse in a democracy “instead of looking like an armed castle.” He suggested that the sheriff reach a compromise with the judges and use the metal detector more often. “We’ve got the equipment, and we’ve done it in the past,” Benedict said. “They [the judges] just have to ask for it.” Jones will present a balanced recommended budget to commissioners in a public hearing Nov. 13. A final budget will be approved by resolution Dec. 3 or 11.
Gorss divides his time between the courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles and the Clallam County Juvenile and Family Services facility across town, where he covers Juvenile Court proceedings. The Forks Police Department generally provides the security for Clallam County District Court No. 2 in Forks, Benedict said. Clallam County occasionally deploys a metal detector in high-profile cases. Benedict noted that an armed corrections deputy accompanies in-custody ________ defendants for trials and pretrial hearings.

EVERETT — Trial is scheduled to begin next week in Everett for a Marysville police officer charged with manslaughter in the death of his 7-yearold daughter. Snohomish County prosecutors said Officer Derek Carlile failed to heed the danger of leaving a loaded handgun alone in a parked van with his four children. A 3-year-old son found the gun last March in Stanwood and fired a shot that killed 7-year-old Jenna. The Daily (Everett) Herald reported that defense lawyer David Allen said prosecutors cannot prove that Carlile caused his daughter’s death.

forestry practices in Olympic National Forest. T h e Northwest Forest Plan Robb would have to be amended or revised to allow matrix logging, Hutchins said. Johnson said logging interests have tried working with Wild Olympics for two years on a compromise. “What our proposal has been since Day 1 is that we agreed to work with the proponents on giving up areas of wilderness where we obviously know we cannot harvest,” Johnson said. “In return, we wanted equal acres back as matrixtype harvestable lands that we could count on for as a sustainable harvest in perpetuity.” Matrix logging can include clearcutting, or regeneration harvests, which allow trees to remain and continue generating revenue, said Harry Greer, chief forester at Green Crow Corp., a Port Angelesbased timber lands management company. Greer said modern-day methods of clearcutting do not denude land like the practice once did. Johnson said NOTAC was still determining the geographic areas it would propose for more aggressive timber management. “This would open up lands that we have proposed to a more commercial type of harvest, where there would actually be an economic component of harvesting,” Johnson said. “It would be harvesting more trees instead of selecting a tree here and there,” she said. “You can leave certain trees on a landscape and have a commercial harvest.”
Gallant said she hasn’t seen the details of NOTAC’s proposal. “They really need to make such proposals and presentations to us, to the environmental community, since we did the same with them,” she said. The Port of Port Angeles, Clallam County and city of Forks also have hired Malus Partners, a Sequim consulting firm, and Olympus Consulting of Port Angeles to conduct a $24,000 economic impact study of the DicksMurray legislation.

Robb said the port is “encouraged a little bit” by Churchill’s assertion that there are abundant, untapped harvest opportunities in Olympic National Forest that lie outside the proposed wilderness areas. “That statement is exactly what we are trying to look at as part of our study: looking at potential impacts, if any, and then opportunities,” Robb said.

Stores instead provide standard-sized paper shopping bags with or without handles, with each store required to assess the 5-cent-per-bag “passthrough charge” to each customer who uses the paper bag instead of bringing a reusable one.

The music of giving and receiving Past recipients to play at scholarship benefit concert BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” What goes around comes around: An array of players who have benefited from Monday Musicale scholarships years ago â€” and bloomed as musicians â€” will gather in Port Angeles to give a concert this Sunday. And they will run the gamut. Pianist and Port Angeles High School alumna Allyson Kramer, who won a scholarship in 1980 and now directs a chamber music camp in Seattle, will play Ravelâ€™s Rhapsodie Espagnole, Claude Bollingâ€™s â€œJavanaiseâ€? Suite for Jazz Trio and John Williamsâ€™ â€œRemembrancesâ€? from â€œSchindlerâ€™s Listâ€? with two young musicians. Theyâ€™re her daughters: cellist-pianist Rachel Kramer, 20, and violinist Carlin Kramer, 17, and this Kramer trio is but one part of the Monday Musicale Scholarship Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 E. Lopez St. Tickets are $10, with proceeds going toward the
Monday Musicale scholarship fund, established in 1969. â€œThis is our big moneymaker,â€? organizer Gary McRoberts said, adding that the scholarships, named for the Monday noontime concerts at Queen of Angels Church in Port Angeles, grew from music teacher Thelma McCoyâ€™s desire to help young students pursue their dreams post-Port Angeles.
Variety of performers Other recipients to play Sunday include cellist Traci Hoveskeland, who since winning a Monday Musicale scholarship in 1989 has traveled the world as half of the Bottom Line Duo. She formed the Seattlebased duo 20 years ago with her husband â€” and Port Angeles High School mate â€” Spencer Hoveskeland. During Sundayâ€™s concert, she will offer what she calls simply â€œa fun piece,â€? W.H. Squireâ€™s â€œBourĂŠe,â€? and then introduce another young cellist: Melanie Schimschal, a student of Hoveskelandâ€™s who plays in the Port Angeles High School Orchestra. Together, the cellists will perform Charles Danclaâ€™s
Allyson Kramer, center, and her daughters Carlin, 17, and Rachel, 20, are among the performers in this Sunday afternoonâ€™s Monday Musicale Scholarship Benefit. The musical program will roam from classical to jazz, ragtime and beyond. â€œA Dramatic Story.â€? Then thereâ€™s John Lorentzen, who received a $500 scholarship back in 1978. Heâ€™s now the choir teacher at Sequim High School, while his wife, Laura, teaches music in the Chimacum schools. The Lorentzens and their children â€” Mark, 26; Anne, 23; Lisa, 20; Kathryn, 17 â€” perform together, and last February, the family won first place in the Perez Hilton Cover Contest, an online competition, with

SEQUIM â€” Participants in the Kidsâ€™ Book Club will discuss Walk Two Moons, by Sharon Creech, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20. The club will meet at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave. Walk Two Moons is the November book selection. Children between the ages of 8-11 and their parents or guardians are welcome to attend. Children and adults are asked to read the book before coming to the book club. In the book, 13-yearold Salamanca Tree Hiddle, proud of her country roots and the â€œIndian-ness in her blood,â€? travels from Ohio to Idaho with her eccentric grandparents. Along the way, she tells them the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who received mysterious messages, met a â€œpotential lunaticâ€? and whose mother disappeared. Beneath Phoebeâ€™s stories is told Salamancaâ€™s own story and that of her mother, who left one April morning for Idaho,

PORT HADLOCK â€” Loaded with chain saws, water pumps, generators and other emergency equipment, six Washington Conservation Corps members based in Port Hadlock are on the road to New York City to help with Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts. These six Corps members comprise just one of eight six-member teams dispatched by the state Department of Ecology at the request of the federal Corporation for National and Community Service, Ecology Communication Manager Curt Hart said Wednesday. The 48 total crew members, who also come from Ellensburg, Seattle, Wenatchee and Yakima, have set off from Ellensburg by road in eight separate trucks and should arrive in New York City by Saturday, Hart said. Once there, the crews, who will be compensated through Federal Emergency Management Agency grants, will receive assignments for where theyâ€™re most needed, which could be nearly anywhere in New York or New Jersey affected by Sandy, Hart explained. â€œTheyâ€™re bringing enough equipment to allow them to be as flexible as they need to be,â€? Hart said. Much of the New York and New Jersey coasts are still reeling from Sandy, which slammed into the Eastern Seaboard Monday, killing more than 80 people and leaving 6 million without power, according to The Associated Press. More than 4.6 million homes and businesses remained without electrical power Thursday. The total damage from the storm could run as high as $50 billion, according to the forecasting firm Eqecat.
Townsend, Richard Humphreys of Port Hadlock and Mitchell Gritts of Reno, Nev. In past years, Washington Conservation Corps crews from across the state have helped communities nationwide, including aiding recovery efforts after hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf Coast and when a massive tornado almost completely destroyed Joplin, Mo., in 2011, Hart said. Most recently, Washington crews traveled to the central part of the state to support firefighters battling last summerâ€™s wildfires. â€œOur folks have gotten very recent, practical, on-theground experience,â€? Hart said. Conservation Corps crew members, except for the crew supervisor, serve a one-year stint, Hart explained, with the tour of service for the crews currently headed to New York City just starting Oct. 1. â€œ[For] a lot of the people from Port Hadlock, this may be their first year of service in the [Washington Conservation Corps],â€? Hart said. Another Peninsula team, this one affiliated with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, is on the East Coast now. Capts.

No reason why you shouldn’t vote RATHER THAN PARK, get out and walk through traffic, I deposited my ballot in the still functional drive-up mailbox-style drop box outside the Clallam County Courthouse. Also outside the Port Angeles’ courthouse Martha M. entrance, the Ireland new “Official Ballot Drop Box” pictured Oct. 21 in the PDN meets state and federal handicapped-accessible standards that favor pedestrians and people using wheelchairs. It does not accommodate drivers in cars. Both drop boxes work, Clallam Auditor Patty Rosand assured me. State-administered federal tax dollars paid for the new box, which cost about $1,500, not the $7,000 Rosand mistakenly told the reporter. It was part of a grant totaling a bit more than $4,000. The project also added a drop box inside the 24-hour lobby of Forks City Hall, but left the drive-up drop box at Sequim City Hall unchanged. Jefferson County has drop boxes in the rear parking lot of the courthouse and at the Tri-
Area branch of the library. Both are positioned so that people can drive up to deposit their ballots, but lack walkways needed to make them Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant. Ballots can also be mailed — one stamp — or placed in drop boxes inside either auditor’s offices. In the push to “protect the integrity of elections,” drop boxes are a tiny budget item, Jefferson Auditor Donna Eldridge said. Since 2005, Jefferson County has received $417,068.46 in Help America Vote Act grants, she said. Big-ticket items were a new tabulator for $149,000, and $85,000 to connect the county registry to the state system for upload. Historically, North Olympic Peninsula voters lead the state in turnout, a trend that is on track again this year. At least 50 percent of Jefferson County voters have returned their ballots to date, as have more than 40 percent of Clallam County voters. That’s about typical for presidential elections, both auditors said. I usually hold off voting until the last day, but I had studied all the issues and candidates, and confidently dropped my ballot 10 days ago. Not everyone is finding it easy
Voter Guide your election companion IF YOU HAVEN’T already voted in the all-mail election that ends Tuesday, you still have time, as columnist Martha Ireland points p out today. You also still have the opportunity to pick up a free copy of the North Olympic Peninsula Voter Guide, published by the Peninsula Daily News. Extra copies of the magazine-style guide, which was debuted with the Oct. 19-20 PDN, are free at courthouses, city halls, libraries, senior centers and the PDN office in Port Angeles, 305 W. First St. while supplies last. It’s also online at www.peninsuladailynews.com. to mark his or her ballot this year. One older gentleman called, hoping “that little girl who writes in the paper” would explain a couple of the ballot issues. A few other readers have dared to tell me they’re considering not voting at all. None of their excuses holds up. Some say they’re not real enthused about the candidates. So? Even if the choice is between someone you see as being right only 20 percent of the time versus someone who is never right, to your perception, the right choice is to cast your ballot for the better of the two. Some figure the presidential election will be settled before the
Peninsula Voices For Ref. 74 We are writing in support of Referendum Measure 74, having already voted in favor of it. There are five reasons we support it: ■ First, we see same-sex marriage as a legal issue. It provides same-sex couples with the same legal rights to pensions, health care, and child custody as heterosexual couples. ■ Second, R-74 does not infringe on the beliefs or positions of churches or its members. It does not require them to perform same-sex marriages or to change their positions or beliefs. ■ Third, we believe that two consenting adults should be able to marry regardless of race, creed, color or sexual orientation. ■ Fourth, our Lord Jesus Christ, who said love your neighbor as yourself, was silent on the issue of same-sex marriage. He spoke much more about peace, justice and the proper use of our time, our talents and our wealth. ■ Finally, we have been blessed for 41 years with a loving and committed marriage. It is our wish that people — homosexual or heterosexual — have the opportunity to find someone with whom they can share their life journey. Please join us in voting for R-74. Gary Heaton, Deborah Heaton, Port Angeles
For Ref. 74 It appears that those who oppose Referendum 74 do not know that we who are gay and lesbian are their neighbors, family members and friends. Do they not understand that some of us have spouses and children? Do they not know that we care for our families just
as they do? Gay residents of Clallam County vote, pay taxes, work, retire and live in this beautiful community. Some serve or have served in the military. Some of us attend church. We take Communion, pray and offer our time and talents to help the less fortunate among us as a response to God’s love, which we learn about in the Bible and in worship just like you. Look in the mirror, anti74 letter writers and congregations. The people you call an abomination look just like you. The only difference other than the gender of our spouses is that we have to live without having the same legal rights as you enjoy. We live with your hate. Is it too much to ask you to live with our love? R-74 is about civil marriage, not religious marriage. R-74 only means that any two consenting adults can have their marriages recognized by the state of Washington. Both civilians and activeduty service people and veterans who happen to be homosexual can finally have

counting even begins here. “Maybe, but not for all the other things on the ballot,” Rosand responded. In addition to the presidential race, we are also choosing a U.S. senator, congressman, governor, all statewide elected officials, legislators, various judges, county commissioners and other local officials, plus deciding assorted ballot issues. “Clallam County has only 1.2 percent of the [3.85-million-plus] voters in Washington state, so your vote counts a lot more for local issues,” Rosand said. High voter turnout increases influence, as seen in 2010’s 24th Legislative District race. Clallam County has more
than twice as many registered voters than Jefferson County has, but a higher percentage of Jefferson County voters typically participates in elections. Thus, Steve Tharinger won election to the Legislature by carrying Jefferson and Grays Harbor counties, although Jim McEntire carried Clallam. As for the younger man who’s so disgusted with the way the major parties conduct business that he’s considering backing a third party, there are eight choices for president on the ballot, if he wants to play that game. “If you don’t vote, you have no voice in your government,” Eldridge said. “Your vote might not be the one that decides who’s president, but it might be the deciding vote for a judge.” However you look at it, if you can legally vote, there’s no good excuse for not casting your ballot.

coast] proposal would cross the Queen Charlotte fault, which runs along the west side of Haida Gwaii and was the seismic backdrop to Saturday’s 7.7-magnitude quake. The Northern Gateway project is physically removed from the area where Saturday’s quake occurred, and its design takes geotechnical risks into account, said Enbridge spokesman Todd Nogier. And Saturday’s earthquake, despite being Canada’s biggest in more than 60 years, is “well within” standards incorporated into the
pipeline design, he added. The proposed $6.5-billion, twinpipeline Northern Gateway project would carry crude oil from near Edmonton, Alberta, to near Kitimat in northwestern British Columbia and condensate in the other direction.

The Globe and Mail
Democrat critic In every election year, there are those candidates who endeavor to harvest votes from senior citizens by using scare tactics. Maria Cantwell’s full-page political ad [PDN, Oct. 25] fits well into this reasoning. Claiming the out-of-pocket cost of Medicare could increase over $6,000 a year under a plan suggested by Paul Ryan, she is urging people to (1) sign her petition opposing the Ryan plan that turns Medicare into a voucher system, and (2) vote for her. If Cantwell were paying attention to happenings in Washington, D.C., she would know that a top [Barack] Obama health-care adviser proposed in 2010 going around Congress to voucherize Medicare. And, she would know that Ryan’s proposal for implementing a voucher for Medicare would only affect prospective Medicare recipients now 55 years of age and younger. Every failure, every issue, every financial catastrophe, everything wrong in America today is blamed on the Republicans. Which party controls the Senate? Which party has been leading (or not leading) our country? Which party spent billions of dollars on worthless bailout programs that did not require fiscal accountability? Which party has taken this country into near financial ruin over the past four years? Obviously, the Democrats are not paying attention as they strive to fulfill their own political agendas by sending out erroneous information in hopes of receiving a vote so they can continue in their feather bed jobs at the expense of taxpayers. Is this what our country wants for another four years? Steve Woodward, Port Angeles

Bipartisanship in the ‘I’ of the storm THE DRAMATIC HOMESTRETCH ad for President Barack Obama, running on every network and in all media markets, is a home run, devastating for Mitt Romney. And, best of all, the president didn’t have Maureen Dowd to pay for it, or even say, “I approve this message.” It was a total gift — and from a Republican and top Romney surrogate. Gov. Chris Christie, the fleece-wearing, order-barking Neptune of the Jersey Shore, was all over TV Tuesday, effusively praising the president for his luminous leadership on Hurricane Sandy, the same president he mocked last week at a Romney rally in Virginia as a naif groping to find “the light switch of leadership.” As Romney roams the Midwest and Florida struggling to stay relevant, miming coordinating storm response with GOP governors and collecting canned goods to send East, his fair-weather pal Christie failed to give Mittens any disaster relief. On ABC, CBS and NBC, Christie hailed Obama as “outstanding.” On MSNBC, he said the president “has been all over this,” and on CNN, he called Obama “incredibly supportive.” The big guy even tweeted his thanks to the slender one. Most astonishing of all, the New Jersey governor went on Fox News and spoke words rarely heard on that network: “I have to give the president great credit.” “I spoke to the president three times yesterday,” Christie gushed. “He called me for the last time at midnight last night, asking what he could do.” Christie also extolled FEMA,
even though Romney has said it is “immoral” to spend money on federal disaster relief when the deficit is so big. “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy must have forgotten Christie’s self-regarding keynote speech at Romney’s convention, which had more “I” than “he” in it. Doocy asked Christie if there was “any possibility that Gov. Romney may go to New Jersey to tour some of the damage with you?” The governor replied dismissively: “I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” adding: “If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don’t know me.” White House officials seemed a bit flummoxed by Christie’s bearhug. “It’s unnerving,” one laughed, noting how odd it is that a Romney big gun might help break the stubborn tie in the electorate in Obama’s favor. They speculate that Christie, who always puts Christie first, has decided that it’s better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue-state governor with a Democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have President Romney and tea-party Republicans in Congress pulling him over to the extreme right for the next eight years. He also knows he’ll need a boatload of federal cash to make his state whole again. Christie was in full “Sopranos”at-the-shore mode in his blue fleece pullover. When Irene hit last year, he yelled at lingering frolickers, “Get the hell off the beach!” This time, the governor blistered the Atlantic City mayor for sending what he called “mixed messages” on evacuation orders and warned stranded residents: “We will not be able to come and help you until daylight tomorrow.” The president is still overcom-
pensating for his first-debate pout, determined not to be a loser. He made a false start and erred on the side of politics, wasting a round-trip to Florida. He wanted to squeeze in one more rally before the storm, so he risked flying to Orlando on Sunday night for a campaign event Monday morning with Bill Clinton. Told that Air Force One pilots said he needed to leave before the rally or he might get stuck outside Washington — where sun and palms would be an unfortunate backdrop — he went back to the White House. Just about the only criticism the president got on his storm stewardship was, amazingly enough, from “Heck of a Job, Brownie” Michael Brown, the FEMA chief during Katrina, who naturally thought Obama acted too quickly and efficiently. With Obama forced off the trail, Clinton and Joe Biden could fulfill their shared fantasy: to be the presidential candidate. In Youngstown, Ohio, the two “Last Hurrah” pols plunged into a thrilled throng to shake hands, pose for pictures, bounce babies and sign books. Rather than campaigning, which he finds draining, the president was in the Oval Office calling a Republican to work things out. But this time, unlike with John Boehner at a fateful moment, a flattered Christie took Obama’s calls. While Romney campaigned in Florida on Wednesday, Christie and Obama toured storm damage in New Jersey, a picture of bipartisanship, putting distressed people above dirt-slinging politics. And that’s a grand bargain for both of them.

Obamacare-caused layoffs already start IN JUNE, A diffident and selfdeluded President Barack Obama claimed that “the private sector is doing fine.” Last week, the private secMichelle tor responded: Speak for your- Malkin self, buster. Who needs an “October Surprise” when the business headlines are broadcasting the imminent layoff bomb in neon lights? The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 “mass layoff actions” (affecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were affected overall. USA Today financial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that “much of the recent layoff activity is connected to what’s been the slowest period of earnings growth since the third quarter of 2009.” Some necessary restructuring is under way in response to the stagnant European economy. But more and more U.S. businesses are putting the blame — bravely and squarely — right where it belongs: on the obstructionist policies and regulatory schemes of the blame-shifter-inchief. Last week, Ohio-based auto parts manufacturer Dana Holding Corp. warned employees of potential layoffs amid “looming concern” about the economy. President and CEO Roger Wood specifically mentioned the walloping burden of “increasing taxes on small businesses” and the need to “offset increased costs that are placed on us through new laws and regulations.” Case in point: Obamacare. The mandate will cost Dana Holding Corp., which employs some 24,500 workers, “approximately $24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses.” As Ohio Watchdog blogger
Maggie Thurber reported, the firm’s Toledo area corporate offices laid off seven white-collar employees last Friday; company insiders told her more were on the way. They are not alone. On Tuesday, Consol Energy issued a federally mandated layoff disclosure announcing its “intent to idle its Miller Creek surface operations near Naugatuck, W.Va.” The move will affect the company’s Wiley Surface Mine, Wiley Creek Surface Mine, Minway Surface Mine, Minway Preparation Plant and Miller Creek Administration Group, all in Mingo County, W.Va. Despite Consol’s state approval, cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and myriad other agencies and a stellar safety record, Obama’s EPA dragged its feet on the permit approval process. The impasse has forced layoffs of 145 Consol Energy employees that will hit at the end of the year. They are not alone. In August, Robert E. Murray, founder and CEO of Murray Energy Corp. in Ohio, blasted the White House anti-coal agenda for the layoffs and closure of his company’s mine. He told Obama water-carrying CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien that “the many regulations that [Obama] and his radical appointees and the U.S. EPA have put on the use of coal, there are dozens of them and collectively by his own energy administration, have closed 175 power plants.” As O’Brien barked at her guest about purported environmental objections, Murray explained that “we cannot get permits for these mines. They are delaying the issuance of permits. “If you can’t get the permit, you can’t have the mine. . . . I created those jobs, and I put the investment in that mine. “And when it came time to lay the people off, I went up personally and talked to every one of them myself to lay them off. It’s a human issue.” And it’s an innovation issue, too. As I reported in February, Obamacare’s impending 2.3 per-
cent medical device excise tax has already wrought havoc on the industry: Stryker, a maker of artificial hips and knees based in Kalamazoo, Mich., is slashing 5 percent of its global workforce (an estimated 1,000 workers) this coming year to reduce costs related to Obamacare’s taxes and mandates. Covidien, a N.Y.-based surgical supplies manufacturer, recently announced layoffs of 200 American workers and plans to move some of its plant work to Mexico and Costa Rica, in part because of the coming tax hit. Mass.-based Zoll Medical Corp., which makes defibrillators and employs some 1,800 workers in the U.S. and around the world, says the medical device tax will cost the company between $5 million and $10 million a year. This July, Indiana’s Cook Medical Inc. shelved plans to open five new plants because of the imminent medical device tax hit. They are not alone. The heads of Koch Industries, Westgate Resorts and ASG Software Solutions have all separately informed their employees of prosperity-undermining Obama economic politics. Left-wing groups have lambasted the executives for exercising their political free speech. But they have remained silent while the White House corruptocrats bribed federal defense contractors into delaying federally mandated layoff disclosures before the election. In a memo now being investigated on Capitol Hill, Obama promised to cover the legal fees of Lockheed Martin and other defense contractors if they ignored legal requirements to inform workers in advance about socalled sequestration cuts to the military’s budget scheduled to kick in next year. Truth suppression is a timehonored Obama tactic, of course.
