JeffCom911 to cut ties with county Emergency dispatcher will fund manage self by first of October BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT HADLOCK â€” The agency that handles Jefferson Countyâ€™s emergency dispatching will become independent Oct. 1 and no longer come under the auspices of county government. At that time, JeffCom911 Communications will manage and fund itself instead of being a county department.
â€œThis will make everything more efficient,â€? said JeffCom911 Director Janet Silvus. â€œThe board will have more control over what we do, and all the information we need will be accessible to us, and we will be better able to respond.â€? Silvus said people who call 9-1-1 in an emergency will not see any difference when the agency becomes independent. â€œJeffCom was never meant to
be a county agency; most emergency service agencies are standalone,â€? said East Jefferson Fire-Rescue Chief Gordon Pomeroy. â€œOnce it is Pomeroy independent, the users will have more say about what goes on in the agency, and it will be able to get what it needs immediately without having to go through a lot of bureaucracy.â€? On Monday, the three county
commissioners approved a measure that created two new funds for JeffCom911, for general and capital purposes. The funds â€” which come mainly from a 2006 property tax levy and the agencies that respond from JeffCom911 calls â€” still will be administered by County Treasurer Judi Morris, but JeffCom911 will not need commissionersâ€™ approval for spending them.

By The Associated Press
ALAN M. KRIEGSMAN, 84, the longtime dance critic for The Washington Post and the first dance critic to win a Pulitzer Prize, died Friday at his home in Washington. The cause was heart disease, said his wife of 55 years, Sali Ann, a former dance director of the National Endowment of the Arts. Mr. Kriegsman’s career at The Post, from 1966 to 1996, coincided with a period of growth and diversification in American dance and with important developments in Washington as a center for dance, notably the opening in 1971 of both the Kennedy Center and the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. His own training had been in science and musicology, both of which remained lifelong interests. His passion for dance had been ignited by a 1946 performance by the ballerina Alicia Markova. Alan Mortimer Kriegsman, widely known as Mike, was born in New York City on Feb. 28, 1928. His father was a lawyer, his mother an executive secretary, and from them and other relatives, he acquired a passion
Sometimes for both music (he played piano) and science. He married the former Sali Ann Ribakove in 1957. She survives him, as does a brother. In 1966, they moved to Washington, where he joined The Post as a music critic. Soon, he expanded his brief to cover other performing arts, writing as an occasional columnist on wider cultural issues. He became the paper’s dance critic in 1974; he received the Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 1976.
_________ CHARLIE ROSE, 73, a former U.S. representative and a savvy political player who used his seat on the House Agriculture Committee to help tobacco farmers, has died. Stacye Hefner, the wife
of the former congressman, said Tuesday that he died of Parkinson’s disease at a hospital near their northern Alabama home. She said Mr. Rose was diagnosed with the degenerative brain disorder last year. Mr. Rose, a Democrat, spent 24 years in Washington representing the 7th Congressional District, which included his hometown of Fayetteville. The attorney and former prosecutor became a powerful lawmaker in Congress and used his Agriculture Committee seat to back the interests of farmers, especially tobacco growers back home. He also chaired the House Administration Committee in the early 1990s. Mr. Rose retired in 1996 and then worked as a lobbyist.

A3 Briefly: Nation Pentagon says ex-SEAL’s book spills secrets WASHINGTON — A Pentagon official said a former Navy SEAL’s insider account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden contains classified information. Pentagon press secretary George Little told reporters Tuesday that an official review of the book, No Easy Day, determined that it reveals what he called “sensitive and classified” information. He was not more specific but said the book should have been submitted to the Pentagon before publication for a formal review of potential disclosures of such information. A lawyer for the author, Matt Bissonnette, has disputed that he was legally obliged to have the book screened before publication. Little would not say what damage may result from the book’s revelations. Little said the Pentagon has not taken steps to stop the book from being sold on military installations.
Romney top cash-raiser WASHINGTON — The Associated Press has learned that Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has raised at least $100 million in August for the third consecutive month. The early numbers, which include money raised by the

The disclosure comes as Romney and the GOP have outraised President Barack Obama’s reelection effort in May, June and July, including money collected by the Democratic Party. Obama’s advisers have publicly acknowledged the president will likely be outspent.

Michelle Obama pitches husband THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Democrats opened their national convention Tuesday offering President Barack Obama as America’s best chance to revive the ragged U.S. economy and asking voters to be patient with incomplete results so far. First lady Michelle Obama, in her opening-night speech, aimed to give people a very personal reminder of “the man that he was before he was president.” “The truth is that he has grown so much, but in terms of his core character and value, that has not been changed at all,” she said. “I am going to take folks back to the man he was before he was president.” Polls show the first lady is more popular than her husband. With the economy struggling, Robert Gibbs, a campaign surrogate and former White House press secretary, said Mrs. Obama “can really tell the story of his [the president’s] values, his

Social Security’s bullet order fires up conspiracy theorists THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — It didn’t take long for the Internet to start buzzing with conspiracy theories after the Social Security Administration posted a notice that it was purchasing 174,000 hollow-point bullets. Why is the agency that provides benefits to retirees, disabled workers, widows and children stockpiling ammunition? Whom are they going to use it on? “It’s not outlandish to suggest that the Social Security Administration is purchasing the bullets as part of preparations for civil unrest,” Infowars.com said. Another website, The Daily
Caller, said the bullets must be for use against American citizens, “since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.” The clamor became such a distraction the agency dedicated a website to explain the purchase.
Office of inspector general The bullets are for Social Security’s office of inspector general, which has about 295 agents who investigate Social Security fraud and other crimes, said Jonathan L. Lasher, the agency’s assistant IG for external relations. The agents carry guns and
make arrests — 589 last year, Lasher said. They execute search warrants and respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees and customers. Agents carry .357 caliber pistols, Lasher said. The bullets, which add up to about 590 per agent, are for the upcoming fiscal year. Most will be expended on the firing range. Some bloggers have asked why agents need hollow-point bullets, known for causing more tissue damage than other bullets when they hit a person because they expand when they enter the body. The bullets, however, are standard issue for many law enforcement agencies, Lasher said.

IT COULD BE a week before firefighters can contain a 3,600-acre blaze in the Angeles National Forest because of high temperatures and rugged terrain in thick brush that hasn’t burned in a couple of decades. The cause of the fire that started Sunday afternoon in the San Gabriel Mountains, spoiling holiday hiking and camping plans for thousands, has not been determined, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. A burned car was found in the area, but it isn’t clear if it started the fire or was just destroyed by the flames, officials said.
A FEDERAL JUDGE Tuesday ordered state prison officials to provide a taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery to a transgender inmate serving life in prison for murder. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled in the case of Michelle Kosilek, who was born as a man but has received hormone treatments and lives as a woman in an all-male prison. Robert Kosilek was convicted of murder in the killing of his wife in 1990. Kosilek sued in 2005, arguing that the surgery is a medical necessity. In his ruling, Wolf found that surgery is the “only adequate treatment” for Kosilek’s “serious medical need.”

Shops strut their stuff on Fashionâ€™s Night Out BY DIANE URBANI
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” These three women intend to dispel what they perceive as downtownâ€™s bad reputation. Well, maybe not so bad â€” but boring, they say. People think thereâ€™s little to no fall-fashion shopping downtown, said Janee Lyster, owner of the Sassy Kat Salon and Boutique. So she and six other shops are joining thousands of other cities â€” from New York to Moscow â€” for Fashionâ€™s Night Out, an annual celebration of style and community. Music and strutting â€” in a free fashion show â€” will start the event at the Elks Naval Lodge, 131 E. First St., at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Then Fashionâ€™s Night Out will fan out around downtown, with 20 businesses open late with special promotions, appetizers, beverages and sales.
Major sponsor Sterling Bank is the eventâ€™s major sponsor. â€œWe wanted to show people we could do it on our own,â€? said Lyster, who did not enlist help from the Port Angeles Downtown Association to assemble participants. Trisa Chomica, whose Trisa & Co. design business is upstairs from Sassy Kat, told Lyster about Fashionâ€™s Night Out, the now international event begun in 2009 in New York City by Vogue magazine and others. So Lyster, Chomica and Marilyn Lamb, owner of the Cottage Queen boutique downtown, decided to start recruiting other downtown merchants. â€œThey went ahead and planned it,â€? said Barbara Frederick, executive director of the Port Angeles Downtown Association. â€œI think itâ€™s great that theyâ€™re doing it.â€? â€œItâ€™s wonderful when businesses take the initiative to plan something.â€? Lysterâ€™s Sassy Kat, along with six other shops â€” Jewells Boutique, Necessities & Temptations, Cottage Queen, Black Diamond Bridal, Maurices and Iron Apparel, all neighbors in the downtown â€” will showcase scores of outfits in the Elks show. Lyster has hired a music provider who goes by DJ Dave to keep the models moving up the runway.

Doors will be open at 5 p.m., and â€œpeople can come in any timeâ€? during the hourlong fashion show, Lyster said. The models include men, women and children, she said, and they range in age from 23 months to 72 years old.

The eight merchants who contributed to the $600 dress package plus 12 others will be open late, some until 8 p.m. and some until 9 p.m. For information about the event, phone Lyster at Sassy Kat at 360-417-0800.

For E. Jefferson schools, fight to meet standards BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Students in East Jefferson County’s school districts struggled to meet state standards in all subjects in the 2011-2012 school year. But they made some major improvements from the 2010-2011 school year, according to a report issued by the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. In June, students in third through eighth grades took the Measurements of Student Progress exams in math and reading, fourth- and seventh-grade students’ writing abilities were measured, and fifth- and eighthgrade students were tested in science. End-of-course exams in algebra, geometry and biology are a new state high school graduation requirement, replacing the High School Proficiency Exam in those subjects. Students in the classes of 2013 and 2014 must pass the proficiency exam in reading, writing and mathematics. Beginning with the class of 2015, students must pass all five exams to graduate. Detailed reports for each district are available at the OSPI website, http://report card.ospi.k12.wa.us.
Port Townsend Students in the Port Townsend School District met or exceeded state standards at rates higher than state averages in 12 of 21 grade levels and subjects. Port Townsend High School students passed at a rate that exceeded state averages in four of five exams required for graduation. They passed the reading exam at a rate of 90.1 percent. A total of 92.8 percent passed the writing exam, 74.6 passed the algebra exam, and 73.8 percent passed the biology exam. In geometry, 72.6 passed the exam, short of the state
average of 79.1. At the elementary and middle school levels, student achievement was at or near state averages in most subjects, with improvements in the percentage of students meeting standards in fourthgrade writing and in fifthand eighth-grade science.
At the high school, 80 percent passed the reading exam, 68 percent passed writing, 73.3 percent passed algebra, 85.7 percent passed geometry, and 36 percent passed biology.

THE (EVERETT) HERALD
Bill Lindsay wades through the waves to measure the water temperature at Marina Beach in Edmonds — a task he’s done regularly since 1994.
63-year-old is real ‘water temperature-taker dude’ BY KATYA YEFIMOVA THE (EVERETT) HERALD
EDMONDS — The man’s quick, determined gait stood out at the Edmonds waterfront as he marched past the scattered beach chairs and strolling families licking ice-cream cones. Meet Bill Lindsay. As always in the summer, he was barefoot and wearing only jean shorts. He had long white-and-gray hair and a walrus mustache. He walked to the jetty off Edmonds and dropped a thermometer in the water for exactly 15 seconds. “Hey, Bill, what’s the temperature today?” a passer-by asked. It was 59.9 degrees in that spot, the first of 12 where Lindsay would stop on his daily 2.5-mile walk along the beach. Then he’d go back to his car parked outside a nearby restaurant and record the water temperature numbers in a diary, along with notes about what he saw and who he talked to. Lindsay, 63, of Lynnwood has been a frequent sight at the Edmonds waterfront since 1994. He’s reached a kind of celebrity status under the nickname “Edmonds Beach Water Temperature-Taker Dude.”
‘My daily routine’ “I work this beach. It’s my daily routine. It’s like a summer vacation every day,” he said. He started driving to Edmonds and visiting the beach because he liked the walk, later deciding to measure the water temperature because it was something he’d always been interested in. Bad weather is no obstacle to Lindsay, but in winter, he wears long jeans and a T-shirt.

Paula Walters, a para-educator at Jefferson School in Port Angeles, takes on the duty of crossing guard to assist youngsters and a few adults as they cross busy Lincoln Street on Tuesday.
Justice for Victims of
After stopping at the Edmonds jetty on a recent sweltering afternoon, Lindsay hit a couple more spots south of the ferry dock and walked on to the fishing pier to visit with friends he’d made over the years. Among them was a onelegged crow who sat perched on the railing, waiting for his usual treat. Lindsay threw a cracker to the crow, as he’d been doing almost every day for the past five years.
Power of the people Regulars said hello and asked Lindsay about the weather. Others came up to him to find out what he was doing. That’s Lindsay’s biggest reward. “I like people,” he said. “Sometimes I spend half an hour talking to someone.” People like Lindsay, too. A friend of a friend started a Facebook fan page for him. As of Monday afternoon, it had 6,409 likes. In comparison, the Everett newspaper’s Facebook page had 3,419 likes, and the Snohomish County PUD had 4,598. People post photos and stories about their encounters with the Edmonds Beach Water TemperatureTaker Dude. Lindsay doesn’t log in to or update the page, but he knows about it and doesn’t mind the noteworthiness. In a way, he is out there measuring the temperature for the benefit of other people. There’s a science to it that Lindsay wants people to be aware of. The water temperature varies by several degrees depending on where you are along the beach, and it’s different from day to day, Lindsay said. For example, water is often cooler on a hot day because the heat changes
the regular wind pattern. The wind then blows cold water toward the beach.
Loves the water Lindsay fell in love with water during the summers he spent on the shore in New Jersey. He came to the Puget Sound area in 1973, when he was an officer in the U.S. Navy stationed in Bremerton. He has a degree in mechanical engineering and works as a technical manual writer for Boeing. Most weekdays he arrives in Edmonds between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. He changes into his shorts — no, he doesn’t wear them to his job at Boeing — and leaves his shoes in the car. He loves numbers and has developed a system for remembering them. Each number makes him think of something, and he loves looking for patterns.
Happy to share Lindsay is happy to share his knowledge about the weather and hopes people find it useful. It’s been useful for him: Years’ worth of monitoring temperature and wind patterns helps him predict what plants will do well in a particular season. Thanks to that, he is able to grow just about anything in containers at his rooftop garden, including kiwis, figs, corn and peas. He even planted coffee beans and grew enough for a cup of coffee one year. But most of all, Lindsay hopes people see him and remember to notice and enjoy small things in life. “Life is kind of like picking cherries from a tree,” he said. “You discover pretty things, like a crab in the water or a pretty pattern.”

Effort on to get illegal immigrants college aid BY MANUEL VALDES
dents ineligible for financial aid would cost about $7 million by the 2011-2013 budget cycle. State analysts assumed the change in eligibility would add more than 1,000 students statewide in any given year. But Rachelle Sharpe, director of financial aid at the Washington Student Achievement Council, said itâ€™s really not known how many students who are illegal immigrants are in the state, much less if they would apply for college. Those estimates, she said, were given to provide lawmakers an idea of increment. Should the bill pass, the added students likely would be absorbed into the already growing demand for state financial aid. Even if eligibility is expanded to these students, itâ€™s not guaranteed they would receive aid. Only 2 percent of all students who receive state grants only get state money, she said.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE â€” With the federal government giving young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children a chance to stay in the country, advocates in Washington state are relaunching efforts to open state financial aid to college students who donâ€™t have documents. â€œNow these kids can live and work here without fear of deportation,â€? said Ricardo Sanchez, chairman of the Latino/a Educational Achievement Project, the main group behind the effort. â€œThe financial aid makes more sense.â€? But Sanchez faces an uphill battle in Olympia. The stateâ€™s financial aid pot â€” the needs grant program â€” is already strained after years of economic woes and rising tuition costs. Despite lawmakers proTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS viding additional money, more students who qualify From left, Maricela Velasquez and Sulema Martinez, assistants with the Immigration Law Offices arenâ€™t getting aid because of Garcia, Ramirez and Pina, help Jose Padilla, 20, of Edinburg, Texas, fill out his paperwork for demand keeps growing. work program status in McAllen, Texas.
Uphill battle More so, state financial aid is often tied with federal aid, something that students who qualify under the program canâ€™t apply for. Add the reluctance by lawmakers, including conservatives ones, and opposition from some constituents to give financial aid to students who entered the country without proper documentation. â€œThe state is in the hole by significant amounts of money,â€? said Bob West, chair-
man of Grassroots of Yakima Valley, a tea party group that started as an organization to lobby for strict immigration enforcement in Olympia. â€œWeâ€™re gonna give significant resources to people who I think were given illegally a legal status.â€? West, who three years ago testified against a similar bill, said expanding the eligibility would act as further encouragement for immigrants to come to the country away from official channels. â€œI realize that families
come here and come here with small children, who are obviously not making the choice,â€? said Craig Fisher, another member of Westâ€™s group. â€œThey come here to have a better life, if they come here for that and if the children . . . are benefited, thatâ€™s another incentive for the parents. I think itâ€™s better if we approach it for the standpoint of legal immigration.â€? In June, President Barack Obamaâ€™s administration announced that young illegal

immigrants brought to the United States as children are able to apply for two-year permissions to stay in the country if they meet certain requirements. The Obama administrationâ€™s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals could expand the rights of more than 1 million young illegal immigrants nationwide. They are able to apply for work permits as well, though they donâ€™t obtain legal residency here or a path to citizenship. Under the rules, people who qualify for the program also can be current students. Dovetailing with the new program, Sanchez plans to lead an effort to get a measure passed in Olympia during the next legislative session that would make young illegal immigrants eligible for state financial aid. He tried in 2009, but the measure didnâ€™t make it past committees controlled by Democrats. Sanchez said the amount of money that the new allocation would increase is small

compared to the overall pot. Sanchez argued that these students and their parents have contributed their share to Washingtonâ€™s economy. They pay taxes â€” the chief source of income for the stateâ€™s general budget. And many of the students who would benefit are children of agricultural workers, who help maintain one of the stateâ€™s chief economic sectors. â€œWhatâ€™s at stake is giving kids hope,â€? Sanchez said. â€œOften times for any child in poverty, they donâ€™t understand what higher education means or what it costs, itâ€™s especially true for undocumented students, especially for their parents who donâ€™t have the slightest clue. â€œIf kids grow up saying to themselves, â€˜Iâ€™m not going to college because Iâ€™m an illegal alienâ€™ . . . it becomes a selffulfilling prophecy.â€? Students who are illegal immigrants already qualify for in-state tuition. The state estimated in 2009 that making illegal immigrants who are stu-
Student aid Students who qualify for the program cannot apply for federal student aid, said U.S. Department of Education spokesman Justin Hamilton. In 2011-2012, the state needs-grant pot was $266 million, according to the Washington Student Achievement Council. The agency estimated that its number would increase to more than $300 million in the following year. About 74,000 students received the state needs grant, but more than 31,000 who were eligible did not receive funding in the 20112012 school year, the agency reported. Sen. Phyllis Gutierrez Kenney, a Democrat from Seattle, said there seems to be more support in the Senate this year, which would be a bigger hurdle to pass than the lower chamber, if the current Democrat-Republican split holds. â€œWe want to see more kids graduate from high school,â€? Kenney said.

OLYMPIA — The state Department of Ecology is accepting public comment on an update to a technical document that evaluates available data on fish consumption by Washington residents. Comments will be accepted on the Fish Consumption Rates Technical Support Document through Oct. 26. The agency said it will consider any comments it receives before finalizing the document in the late fall. Ecology is working to accurately identify how much fish residents eat so that protective standards may be set for water quality and in-water sediments. Ecology distributed the first draft of the technical support document for public review in October. After receiving several hundred comments on the first draft, Ecology revised the technical support document.
The update: ■ Focuses on scientific and technical issues, and removes perceived regulatory decisions, including a recommended range for fish-consumption rates. Decisions on how to use the data will be part of the formal public regulatory process of revising the state’s surface water-quality standards with human health criteria, which will include a fish-consumption rate. ■ Adds more information about fish consumption and exposure to contamination faced by both the general and recreational fishing population. The second draft of the Fish Consumption Rates Technical Support Document is at www.ecy.wa. gov/toxics/fish.html. To submit comments, mail them to Adrienne Dorrah, Washington Department of Ecology, Toxics Cleanup Program, P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600, or email them to fishconsumption@ ecy.wa.gov.

Briefly . . . Whale-spine sculpture set to be installed PORT ANGELES — A 16-foot-long, 20,000-pound polished concrete replica of a whale vertebrae is expected to be installed at Valley Creek Estuary Park about 10:30 a.m. today. The large artwork will be moved into place with trucks, cranes and loaders, said Barb Frederick, executive director of the Port Angeles Downtown Association. An anonymous donor paid for the $65,000 addition to the Art on the Town collection of outdoor sculptures that was commissioned from artist Alex Anderson, owner of Alex Anderson Concrete in Port Angeles. Charles Smith, chairman of the Art on the Town Committee, said the 12-foot-tall, 4-foot thick sculpture “fits with the Northwest and the marine theme we have in this community.” The sculpture, which has a 4.5-foot-wide hole in the middle through which children can climb as well as a bench, will be placed near the historical marker facing Front Street on the Port Angeles waterfront.

Death and Memorial Notice NEIL AUSTIN WELLS April 17, 1949 August 22, 2012 Neil passed away from a heart attack on August 22, 2012. Neil was born in Seattle, Washington, attending Port Angeles schools from kindergarten through high school. He lived and worked a short while away from his hometown but soon realized there was no place like home. His jobs here included boat-pulling for Walt Neveril, Payless, the U.S. Forest Service and Crown Zellerbach, retiring from the city of Port Angeles’ Road Department. Neil loved being outdoors. He liked “feeling” the weather and spent a large portion of his life experiencing it. He hunted and fished local rivers, lakes and oceans, traversing forests and mountains his whole life. Many happy trips were made to Alaska, Colorado and Wyoming with his son. He appreciated the wilderness and all its glory

At a young age, it was apparent he had an innate talent as a multifaceted artist. He saw beauty in all things. Always humble, his works were given as gifts of love or kept for his own love of creation and enjoyment. Neil’s random acts of kindnesses were kept close to his heart, but many people knew of or benefited from his caring. His honest, delighted
with the highway. “We don’t expect all these closures to happen simultaneously,” Commissioner Jim McEntire said. “They will be closely following one another in some kind of a sequence so that the contractor can mobilize once and knock all these intersections out. Then that’s done and over with.” The state Department of Transportation has not selected the contractor. The contractor’s schedule will determine the exact dates of the closures, project manager Steve Fuchs told commissioners during an Aug. 20 briefing.
laughter and smiles will be missed. His candid conversations will be missed. He knew God, and that knowledge gave him great moments of understanding and peace. Neil was survived by his son, Ethan Austin Wells; sisters Jean Toliver, Toni Webb and Kristi (Arpad) Toth; and nieces and nephews Justin (Danisha) Toliver and their child Milo, Neil Chad (Carrie) Wells and their children, Hannah, Noah, Troy Wells, Fatimah Rice and Holly Critchfield, Heidi Conyers and children Jake and Baylee and son Noah, Matt Toth, Molly Toth and Mike (Julie) Toth.

Judge ponders new trial in police officer beating death THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SPOKANE — A federal judge is deciding whether former Spokane Police Officer Karl F. Thompson should receive a new trial in the beating death of a suspect. Judge Fred Van Sickle heard arguments Friday that Thompson should receive a new trial because
prosecutors hid information from the defense that could have won his acquittal. The Spokesman-Review reported that several assistant U.S. attorneys disputed the assertions, countering that they had done everything required. Thompson was convicted in November of using excessive force and lying to inves-
tigators in a violent 2006 confrontation with Otto Zehm, a mentally ill janitor mistakenly identified as a possible thief. Zehm died two days after being beaten, stungunned and hog-tied by police in a Spokane convenience store. Thompson remains free during the appeal.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Wednesday, September 5, 2012 PAGE
Trick casting gets you off the hook I HAVE ALWAYS been very proud of my trick-casting ability. I don’t think it’s bragging to Pat say I once was able to cast a Neal lure high into the air and have it land in my shirt pocket. That is a talent that takes years of practice. I think it is way past time to have trick casting included as an Olympic sport. While casting may not have the glamor and excitement of gymnastics or beach volleyball, it requires a special skill to hit a target with a lure at a long distance out of a moving boat. Trick casting should be included in every angler’s bag of tricks.
Darwin’s theory of evolution tells us that fish are much more intelligent than they once were. After a long summer of heavy fishing pressure, the fish have been bombarded with every sort of lure and presentation imaginable. So forget about just throwing a regular ham-and-egger cast into a fishing hole, figuring that the fish are still stupid enough to bite. The fish have probably already seen your pathetic lure, fly or bait enough times to know what aisle of what store your gear came from. You will need some fancy casting to impress the fish if you expect to catch anything. You need some trick casting. You might have to try looping your lure over a tree limb and letting it dangle for just an instant before twitching your rod at the precise angle that allows
the gear to drop into the water at just the right spot. This is called the “Suicide Cast,” because if you fail to execute properly, you will lose everything on the tree limb. There are strict rules in the sport of trick casting. Winners are determined by the number of lures lost. Those who lose the fewest lures “win.” Unfortunately, the numbers of lures lost are largely selfreported. Remember this the next time you hear someone brag how they fished all day and didn’t lose any gear. It’s easy to test to see if fishermen are lying. Their lips are moving. Real trick casters don’t have to lie, but they just might out of a force of habit. Done properly, the “Suicide Cast” will not only amaze and delight any witnesses who hap-

pen to be present, it will cause the fish to attack like hungry sharks. The “Desperation Cast” is a high arcing backhand, over-theshoulder maneuver that should only be used after you have given up hope of ever catching anything. Be sure to give yourself plenty of room before using this cast to avoid hooking anxious onlookers who are trying to copy your technique. If the “Desperation Cast” doesn’t work, you may need the “Kamikaze Hurricane Cast” to score. This is a sideways presentation that almost tips the boat over and hurls the lure with the low-angle trajectory of a rifle shot through tree limbs and between logs with amazing results. A word of caution before using this particular cast: The more
physical force you put into the “Kamikaze Hurricane Cast,” the greater the likelihood something will go wrong. If you snag yourself or others while attempting the “Kamikaze Hurricane,” it will guarantee a trip to the emergency room. You could be through fishing. That’s when you have to make the trickiest cast there is: “The Last Cast.” The great thing about “The Last Cast” is you can always make another one. I’ve seen guys stand for years making “The Last Cast.” With any luck at all, no cast is really your last.

Making one’s sun to eliminate dry spells JUST BEHIND US, the driest August on record in Seattle. I have to admit, my legs had been waiting for some kind of record-based justification to show themselves. Dancing and bicycling has paid off. My collection of summer dresses that hang in my closet 10 months out of the year have been extremely happy. Between Aug. 15 and Sept. 15, I’ll change clothes three times a day just to be sure I get to wear all my favorite flimsies before the drizzle returns. “A woman can just ache for a chance to wear dresses as beautiful as these,” I said to Larry, holding up a halter neck dress bordered with a swirl of leaves near the neckline. He shook his head and smiled, knowing not to object. Every woman needs a fashion fix of one kind or another, and a good man knows it’s best just to let her be when the craving strikes. Because of her place in my

Last week, she married him!! (Double exclamation points? That’s how shocked I was.) Her marriage celebration is tonight, and I’m wearing a dress practically up to here, essentially because she dared me to and I’d agreed because I thought wearing a dress she picked out might smooth things over between us. I have always tried to be supportive to my friend’s marriage-opinions, even if I

can’t keep from giving mine. Essentially, I’m wearing the too-young-for-me dress because I don’t want her to think I disapprove of her decisions in any major way, beginning with hemlines. “I’ll fix you up,” she said, “it’ll be fun.” It was fun. Whether it was just the fact that we’d come together for the sole purpose of my friend kneeling on her bed and coaxing me into one dress after another, or just the sound of our voices cracking one joke about my body or hers, I can’t say. But I loved it, and I would have worn a babushka if she’d told me to. Thanks to the dry spell, I’ve grown more comfortable exposing skin. When everyone around you wears less, it casts a spell. After awhile, you don’t even stare at that bum flapping from beneath fabric more bikini bottom than shorts.
Legs are no longer foreignlooking. Finally, there was one dress that made me say, “I could maybe wear this one.” Gratefully, I had to hold my breath while she zipped me up, and that effort alone totally restored us to not avoiding each other’s eyes. Once I had the dress on, I don’t think she or anyone could have pried it off me without truly suffering. “You look amazing!” Amira cried. Of course she’s from Argentina, shiny black pony tail between gold hoop earrings, the kind of woman who, no matter how dark and exotically Italian I may fool myself into believing I am, women like her always make me feel 100 percent American, corny in comparison, pale no matter what color I wear. “Larry should see me now,” I said. “When I think of all the times I said women over 40 have no business dressing this way.
“When you live where Lutherans set the fashion standard: Excuse me, but are those your legs showing? Put on your chinos like a good girl!” Our faces were open, our friendship genuine. I remember thinking that we made our own sunshine, radiant and bright. If the new husband doesn’t work out, we’ll make it through.

Jefferson County. A lottery system will be used if the demand for permits exceeds the supply. Each permit will cost $150 and can be used for up to two months. A valid U.S. photo identification will be required at the time of purchase, and those buying the permits must be at least 18 years of age. Cash or checks will be accepted, but no credit cards or debit cards. The Forks office is at 437 Tillicum Lane, the Quilcene office is at 295142 U.S. Highway 101, and the

At least one piece of high-visibility clothing is recommended while harvesting salal. Permit holders will be limited to no more than 200 hands per day in possession. Harvest unit boundaries are now clearly defined by roads or recognizable land features, and a map of the harvest areas will be distributed with the sale of each permit.

Enjoying holiday on great course NORTHERN MASON COUNTY is beautiful this time of year. I learned this after some time at Lake Cushman Golf Course and a night camping at the lake resort itself in Hoodsport over the Labor Day weekend. Most of my trips through Michael Mason County Carman are of the passing-through variety, hoping to make my way as quickly as I can to Portland or other exciting points south. When it rains, which is often, the Mason County spotted through a car windshield seems to be particularly dreary and moss-covered. This is, of course, the same area where Seattle TV news stations send “intrepid” reporters to get prime footage of salmon swimming over flooded roadways. Imagine my confusion upon hearing various friends and acquaintances sing the praises of “Cushman” over the years. I’d never turned off of U.S. Highway 101 until Sunday morning. I dropped off a crockpot full of biscuits and gravy at the campsite — my penance for arriving late after watching 17 hours of college football on Saturday. The campsite was quiet at 9 a.m., so I headed over to the course to play nine holes before lunch. I enjoyed a fog-shrouded round (fog staying up in the foothills and away from the course), lost no balls and hit no houses along the course, both small victories that make a bad scoring round feel positive. Despite being up in the foothills of the Olympics, the nine-hole Lake Cushman course is relatively flat (two gradual slopes on two holes) and an easy walk. The course has a collection of old tree stumps incorporated into the layout, which reminded me of Port Ludlow Golf Club. Having been cut out of the surrounding forest, the course is treelined and there are homes on most holes but it never plays claustrophobic. There’s plenty of room for errant shots of all makes and models. My favorite hole was the wide open and straight 479-yard par-5 No. 8, which should yield eagle/birdie opportunities even for high handicappers (I missed my birdie shot). After my round, the fog lifted and my friends and I were able to partake of a warm, sunny day on the lake. For the value ($14 for nine holes on the weekend), sterling course conditions and ease of use, I would recommend the course for any latesummer Lake Cushman vacation.
Three events in PT Port Townsend Golf Club will hold a trio of events this month with the first — the 16th annual Port Townsend Elks Scholarship Golf Tournament — set for Saturday. This tourney will provide scholarships for high school graduates. A 10 a.m. shotgun start will kickoff the two-person best-ball event. There will be gross and net prizes and individual champions for Elks and non-members. Green fees are $40 per player, plus $5 green fees for non-members. Port Townsend will also host a Team Port Townsend Golf Tournament on Saturday, Sept. 22. This tourney will raise money to support Blue Heron Middle School sports. Sports are back this year at Blue Heron after community fundraising rallied to plug a budget gap. Finally, Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary’s annual Night Time Glow Ball Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29. TURN

Void at tight end for Hawks? Winslow let go just before season opener THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Seahawks tight ends combined to catch just 44 passes in 2011. Winslow had caught at least 66 in five of his last six seasons. The Seahawks acquired Winslow in a trade with Tampa Bay in May, and he appeared set to become a big contributor. Seattle had used Winslow all over the field throughout training camp, lining him up anywhere from an inline position to split out wide. “I think we still have that capability to be able to do that,”

McCoy will be asked to do more after Kellen Winslow as cut from the team. offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. “You can really put any of those guys out there — obviously some would be better than others — but really all of our guys know those positions.” Winslow had a base salary of $3.3 million for the 2012 season, which would have been fully guaranteed if he was on the opening day roster. The financial commitment may have been a determining
factor in letting Winslow go. In Winslow’s place, Zach Miller, Anthony McCoy and newly signed Evan Moore will have to fill the void. Moore signed with the Seahawks on Sunday after being released Friday by Cleveland. Miller was signed to a lucrative five-year, $34 million deal last year. He was limited to just 25
catches in 2011, frequently serving as an extra blocker for a patchwork offensive line. More will be asked from the group as the Seahawks look to take another step and challenge for a division title. “We’re going to move forward. We’ve got a good tight end crew and I’m excited about this season,” Miller said. TURN

Azarenka edges defending champ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK â€” So, Victoria Azarenka, what went through your mind as your high-tension, high-quality U.S. Open quarterfinal victory over defending champion Sam Stosur stretched into a third-set tiebreaker? â€œYou donâ€™t want to know what I kept telling myself,â€? Azarenka deadpanned Tuesday. â€œI would have to beep that, I think.â€? She went on to offer a cleaned-up version of what her thoughts had been â€” â€œDonâ€™t be a chickenâ€? â€” while cobbling together a 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (5) rain-interrupted win that eliminated Stosur, put the top-seeded Azarenka in her first semifinal at Flushing Meadows and assured her of retaining the No. 1 ranking no matter what happens the rest of this week. â€œDefinitely, I donâ€™t want to stop. I really want it bad,â€? Azarenka said about the prospect of adding a second Grand Slam trophy to the one she earned in January at the Australian Open. â€œIâ€™m going to do absolutely everything I have,
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Victoria Azarenka returns a shot to Samantha Stosur in the quarterfinals of the 2012 U.S. Open on Tuesday in New York.
U.S. Open you know, to give it all here.â€? As of 7 p.m., thanks to off-and-on showers, she was the only player who got to enjoy a singles victory at
the U.S. Open on Tuesday. The other womenâ€™s quarterfinal on the schedule was suspended in progress because of rain, and fourtime major champion Maria Sharapova will be trailing 2007 Wimbledon runner-up Marion Bartoli 4-0 when
they resume Wednesday. Sharapova got a bit of a reprieve from the weather during her previous match: She was down 2-0 in the third set against Nadia Petrova when a rain delay of 75 minutes came: After the break, Sharapova took
five of the next six games. Sheâ€™ll get at least 15 hours to contemplate her deficit against Bartoli, who lost all eight sets they had played before Tuesday. They were allowed to head to their hotels before 6 p.m., because the tournament wanted to free up Arthur Ashe Stadium for the night session and what was supposed to be the main event: 2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddickâ€™s bid to postpone retirement yet again by beating 2009 champ Juan Martin del Potro in the fourth round. Roddick surprisingly announced last week, on his 30th birthday, that this tournament would be the last of his career. Since then, he picked up two victories over players ranked 43rd and 59th, but the No. 7-seeded del Potro figured to provide more of a challenge. Del Potro is the only man other than Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic to win any of the last 30 Grand Slam titles. Nadal has been sidelined
since his second-round loss at Wimbledon, and is expected to miss at least another two months, with a partially torn patella tendon in his left knee. Federer is already into the quarterfinals at this U.S. Open; defending champion Djokovicâ€™s fourthround match against No. 18 Stanislas Wawrinka was among those on hold Tuesday because of the downpours. They had yet to play a point by 7 p.m., nor had No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia and No. 19 Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany in their match. No. 4 David Ferrer of Spain was leading No. 13 Richard Gasquet of France 7-5, 7-6 (2), 4-3 when they were halted, with hopes of resuming. All of which meant that the only real action for much of the day was Azarenka vs. Stosur. Amazingly, as accomplished as Stosur is, she never had taken so much as a set off Azarenka in six previous tour meetings.

SkyRidge tourney SkyRidge Golf Course in Sequim will say goodbye to summer with a three-person scramble on Saturday, Sept. 15. The event has a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start and is $30 per player ($90 per team). A honey pot is an extra $20 per player. Lunch will be served after the round.
Three drives from each player must be used during play. There will be gross and net prizes, team KPâ€™s and team long putt. For more information, phone 360-683-3673.
Humane Society event The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society will hold its annual Claws and Paws Golf Tournament at Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course in Sequim on Friday, Sept. 21. Proceeds from the tournament go toward the nearly 2,000 animals that
come to the shelter each year. Registration for the twoperson scramble tournament starts at 7 a.m. with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. Cost is $100 per player, which includes golf, cart, range balls, tee prizes, long drive, KPs, raffle tickets and a lunch ticket. A prize field of $1,150 will be available based on a full field of 100 players. Koenig Chevrolet/ Subaru will feature a car for a hole-in-one. There is an additional $20,000 prize to be split between player and the Humane Society for a hole-

Ryder Cup teams set U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III tapped
Steve Stricker, Brandt Snedeker, Dustin Johnson and Jim Furyk as his captainâ€™s picks for the 12-man U.S. team on Tuesday. Loveâ€™s picks join fellow US Ryder Cup members Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson. The European team, with 10 automatic berths and two captainâ€™s picks, was completed last month when captain Jose Maria Olazabal added Ian Poulter and Nicolas Colsaerts. Luke Donald, Sergio

Pac-12 teams facing tough week UW, Arizona, UCLA and OSU play top foes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PHOENIX â€” The Pac-12 had a long opening week, stretching from four games Thursday night to Arizonaâ€™s frenetic game with Toledo that went into the wee hours of Sunday morning. There were a couple of surprising losses, some tougher-than-expected wins, but mostly the week was filled with lopsided victories against overmatched opponents. This week figures to get a lot tougher for the conference with ranked teams like Wisconsin, Nebraska and Oklahoma State on the schedule. The most daunting game would go to Washington. Coming off a win against San Diego State, the Huskies get a huge test in the bayou when they face No. 3 LSU on Saturday. â€œThey are a very good football team,â€? Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said. Oregon State is facing a pretty good one, too. The Beavers had their game against Nicholls State postponed due to Hurricane Isaac, giving them extra time to prepare for No. 13 Wisconsin. They may need it. Oregon State was overrun 35-0 in Madison last year and this season the Badgers are the favorites to win a third straight Big Ten title behind Heisman hopeful Montee Ball and quarterback Danny Oâ€™Brien, a transfer from Maryland. The Beavers do get to
face Wisconsin at home this time and are hoping the fans in Corvallis will give them a boost. â€œItâ€™s as big a non-conference game as Oregon State has hosted,â€? Oregon State coach Mike Riley said. â€œI think itâ€™s awesome. Itâ€™s going to be a great atmosphere here.â€? UCLA faces a big jump in competition from one week to the next. The Bruins started their inaugural season under coach Jim Mora impressively, rolling over Rice 49-24 after Johnathan Franklin ran for 214 yards and three touchdowns. Week 2 gets a whole lot tougher for UCLA: No. 16 Nebraska. The Cornhuskers appear to be back among the nationâ€™s elite and are coming off a 49-20 rout over Southern Mississippi. Nebraska had 632 yards of total offense, most since coach Bo Pelini took over in 2008, and Taylor Martinez threw for 354 yards with five touchdowns against the Golden Eagles, giving UCLA plenty to think about before its second game. â€œTheyâ€™re a nationally ranked team that comes off an impressive win, theyâ€™ve got a lot depth, theyâ€™re very talented and very wellcoached,â€? Mora said. â€œWeâ€™re going to have to play our best to beat them.â€? Arizona also is facing a big step up in competition after barely getting past a smaller-conference program

Washington quarterback Keith Price runs against San Diego State in Seattle on Saturday. Price hopes to find some running room against LSU this weekend. in coach Rich Rodriguezâ€™s debut. In a game that appeared to be stuck on fast-forward, the Wildcats and Rockets combined for an astounding 182 plays while playing well into Sunday morning. The Wildcats had plenty of mistakes and breakdowns in that game and will need to get better quick; up next is No. 18 Oklahoma State. The Cowboys have beaten Arizona each of the past two seasons and didnâ€™t give the Wildcats much game film to look at from their opener, pulling most of their starters after the first
period of an 84-0 win over Savannah State. Oklahoma State showed some mercy with the overmatched Tigers and still had their most lopsided victory since 1916. Yeah, that will get your attention. â€œTheir last game, they could have scored 184 by halftime if they had left their starters in, and their backups are pretty good, too,â€? Rodriguez said. â€œItâ€™s a big challenge and weâ€™re going to have to play well to have a chance in this game, but itâ€™s also an opportunity to see where weâ€™re at.â€?
Washington was already going to have a tough time playing the Tigers on the road. It will be even more difficult after running back Jesse Callier tore the ACL in his right knee against San Diego State and right tackle Ben Riva broke his forearm. The good news for the Huskies is that theyâ€™ve played LSU close before. In 2009, Sarkisian took over a team that had lost its previous 14 games and was facing the nationâ€™s 11thranked team. Despite some pre-game jitters, the Huskies held
