Getting their Kinetic Skulpture race-ready 3 days of PT events culminate on Sunday BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — The idea that a person can never walk through the same river twice — one changes, as does the river — is never more appropriate than when discussing the annual Kinetic Skulpture race. The form of the celebration — which begins tonight and leads up to the race Sunday — doesn’t change appreciably from year to year. Teams of entrepreneurs build self-propelled crafts that run an odd race course, while the entire town comes to watch. But who knows what will happen?
‘Last festival of the year’ “This is the last festival of the year,” said Janet Emery, who has run the event for 17 years. “And it is the only one that all the people in Port Townsend come out to see.” The weekend will begin with an early bird hospitality party from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. today at the Undertown, 211 Taylor St. Saturday’s events will begin with an assembly of racers at 10:30 a.m. in the U.S. Bank parking lot near the ferry terminal. The racers will parade down Water Street to Monroe Street to take a “float test” adjacent to the Northwest Maritime Center. TURN

A for-sale sign hangs on the historic Independent Order of Odd Fellows building in Port Angeles.
Lease for only
PORT ANGELES — There’s one thing Maureen Wall wants for the 100th anniversary of the historic First Street building she’s owned for about nine years: A buyer. Wall, a stone carver and art restoration specialist by trade, started looking for new owners of the historic former Independent Order of the Odd Fellows building in April but has so far received no interest. To help remedy this, Wall has scheduled an open house at the his-
toric building from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at 314 W. First St. The open house will feature the ballroom space on the second floor, which serves as Wall Wall’s studio, with Wall and Deborah Norman, the listing broker for the property, on hand to answer questions. The 12,000-square-foot building, for which Wall is asking $822,000,

Pricey jewels stolen from actress’ home APPROXIMATELY $127,000 WORTH of jewelry has been stolen from actress Julianne Moore’s New York City brownstone. Police said a complaint was filed with the NYPD on Monday. They said Thursday that a necklace, bracelets and watches, some by Cartier, were reported missing. They said the robbery occurred at the home in Manhattan’s West Village sometime between June 6 and Aug. 28. Police said the brownstone was under renovation, and about 15 to 25 construction workers had access to the house during that time. There have been no arrests, and the jewelry has not been recovered. Police are investigating it as a grand larceny.

BIG JIM SULLIVAN, 71, an acclaimed session guitarist who played on dozens of hits in the 1960s and 1970s, has died, his wife said Thursday. Norma Sullivan said Mr. Sullivan had died at their home in West Sussex, England, on Tuesday. He suffered from heart disease and diabetes and had stopped performing live recently because of his health problems. Mr. Sullivan learned guitar as a teenager and turned professional when he was just 16. He played with many of the biggest names in British pop at the height of the “Swinging London” era. Along with Jimmy Page, who would later star in Led Zeppelin, Mr. Sullivan was one of the most in-demand session guitarists of his era. His website lists sessions with the Tom Jones, Marianne Faithfull, David Bowie, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and many others. He claimed to have played on more than 1,000 singles that entered the British charts. Mr. Sullivan’s website said he joined his first band, the Wildcats, at age 17 in 1958, which he described as “the early days of rock and roll in this country.” He said he and his
friends were too busy learning music to do normal teenage things. He was known for his mastery of a wide variety of styles, from hard rock to country to blues. “I am a very lucky man,” he said on his website. “I am living my life with my hobby as my profession.” Mr. Sullivan also toured with Tom Jones’ band, playing in Las Vegas casino hotels and on television shows.
_________ DR. JOSEPH LEE PARKER JR., 95, the last surviving Navy doctor who landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy during the D-Day invasion of World War II, has died, according to a funeral director and a researcher.

A3 Briefly: Nation 2 held in killing of Ariz. Border Patrol agent PHOENIX — Federal police have arrested two men who may be connected with the fatal shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent just north of the MexicoArizona border, a Mexican law enforcement official said Thursday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said it was unclear if there was strong evidence linking the men to the shooting of Agent Nicholas Ivie. Ivie and two other agents were fired upon Tuesday in a rugged hilly area about 5 miles north of the border near Bisbee, Ariz., as they responded to an alarm that was triggered on one of the sensors that the government has installed along the border. The wounded agent was shot in the ankle and buttocks and released from the hospital after undergoing surgery. The third agent wasn’t injured.

Officers became farmers for a day as they began to chop down about 1,500 marijuana plants that police said could have earned the growers as much as $10 million. No arrests had been made as of Wednesday, and police were still trying to determine who owns the property on the city’s far South Side.

In fallout after debate, Obama turns challenger Romney jubilant; president attacks foe’s truthfulness THE NEW YORK TIMES
DENVER — President Obama and his team woke up here Thursday morning confronted by the realization that he lost his first debate by passively letting Mitt Romney control the conversation. Then the president and his advisers resolved to do what he himself did not the night before. “Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. The fellow onstage last night said he didn’t know anything about that,” Obama told 12,000 supporters at a lakeside rally. “The man onstage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney’s decisions and what he’s been saying for the last year,” the president said. “And that’s because he knows full well that we don’t want what he’s been selling for the last year.” The vigorous assault on Romney suggested just how worried Obama’s campaign has become.

President Barack Obama addresses a campaign rally in Denver on Thursday, as Republican candidate Mitt Romney speaks to the media aboard his campaign plane. He added, “He may win the Oscar for his performance last night, but he’s not going to win the presidency.” The Romney team, feeling rejuvenated, fired back. “In full damage-control mode, President Obama today offered no defense of his record and no vision for the future,” said Romney spokesman Ryan Williams. ‘Devoid of honesty’ “Rather than a plan to fix our David Axelrod, the president’s economy, President Obama simstrategist, called Romney an “art- ply offered more false attacks and ful dodger” whose debate com- renewed his call for job-killing tax ments were “devoid of honesty.” hikes.”
The president’s advisers concluded that he lost his first debate by not pressing Romney enough. They decided to try to correct that Thursday with a more aggressive stance, including the rally rhetoric, a new television ad and a conference call questioning Romney’s truthfulness.
Briefly: World Turkish PM doesn’t want war with Syria AKCAKALE, Turkey — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday that his country does not want war with Syria but that it is determined to protect its borders and people. Erdogan was speaking at a news conference held hours after Turkey’s Parliament approved a Erdogan bill authorizing military operations against Syria. Earlier Thursday, Turkey fired on targets in Syria for a second day following a Syrian shelling that killed five civilians in a Turkish border town. Erdogan suggested the Syrian shelling was not accidental, saying that such shells had fallen on Turkish territory on seven previous occasions. “We want peace and security and nothing else. We could never want to start a war, “ Erdogan said. He spoke at a joint news conference with visiting Iranian Vice President Reza Rahimiin in Akcakale.
Al-Nour Party unravels CAIRO — Internal feuds are threatening to unravel the polit-
ical party of Egypt’s ultraconservative Islamist Salafis, as pragmatists try to shake off the control of hard-line clerics who reject any compromise in their puritanical version of Islam. The fight for leadership could paralyze the Al-Nour Party, which rocketed out of nowhere to become Egypt’s second most powerful political force, behind the Muslim Brotherhood. Together, the Brotherhood and Al-Nour embodied the rise of Islamists after last year’s fall of Hosni Mubarak. It underlines the key dilemma in the project of political Islam — what to do when the maneuverings of democratic politics collide with demands for strict purity of religious ideology. “The party is exploding from inside,” Mohammed Habib, who was once a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood, said of Al-Nour.
Dialect dies with Scot LONDON — In a remote fishing town on the tip of Scotland’s Black Isle, the last native speaker of the Cromarty dialect has passed away, taking with him a little fragment of the English linguistic mosaic. Academics said Wednesday that Bobby Hogg, who was 92 when he died last week, was the last person fluent in the dialect once common to the seaside town of Cromarty, 175 miles north of Edinburgh. The demise of an obscure dialect spoken by a few hundred people is part of a trend toward standardization. The Associated Press

Police seek computer used by son who was shot by dad THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — An attorney for a Connecticut man who fatally shot his 15-year-old son, thinking he was an intruder, said Thursday that state police want access to a computer and phone used by the teen to try to determine why he was out at night wearing a ski mask and armed with a knife. Gene Zingaro said his client Jeffrey Giuliano is cooperating with the request because he and his wife want the same answers.
Police said Giuliano went outside with a gun at approximately 1 a.m. Sept. 27 after his sister called to say someone was trying to break into her house next-door in New Fairfield.
A shiny object Officials said Giuliano saw a masked person holding a shiny object come toward him in a threatening manner and shot him. He later was told the person he killed was his son Tyler. Police said the weapon was a knife.
Police are probing the shooting. No charges have been filed. State police made the request Wednesday and plan to view the family computer, probably next week, Zingaro said. He said they want to see any emails, posts to social media and visits to websites made by the boy. “In my opinion, the focus of the investigation has shifted from what happened on the night of the shooting to why Tyler was where he was and what he was doing,” Zingaro said.

THE INSTALLATION OF a new Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco — a backer of California’s same-sex marriage ban — is drawing support and concern as the 56-year-old priest assumed the mantle at St. Mary’s Cathedral at a Mass on Thursday. Salvatore Joseph Cordileone, a native Californian who served as bishop of neighboring Oakland for the past 3½ years, has a nationwide reputation as a fierce defender of the Catholic Church’s positions on homosexuality in general and same-sex marriage in particular. The stance prompted Marc Andrus, Episcopal bishop of California, to invite Catholics opposing it to join his fold.

PA police seek man likely to be armed BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Port Angeles police were looking Thursday for a 37-year-old Port Angeles man wanted for investigation of multiple domesticviolence-related offenses after they served a search warrant at a house associated with him and found a small explosive device. Andrew David Nilsson, who also goes by Andrew Stanger, remained at large late Thursday afternoon. Police consider him likely to be armed and potentially dangerous.
Police seek to arrest Nilsson for investigation of second-degree assault, felony unlaw- Nilsson ful imprisonment, felony harassment, fourth-degree assault and third-degree theft. All the charges are domestic-violence-related and stem from an incident that began Sept. 29 with a single individual, said Port Angeles Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith. Port Angeles police
served a warrant at about 1 p.m. Wednesday at a house in the 200 block of East Eighth Street, Smith said. Police did not find Nilsson but found a pingpongball sized device thought to contain explosives, prompting a call for the State Patrol bomb squad, Smith said.
Nilsson is described as white, 5-foot-10 and weighing 190 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He has no known distinguishing marks. Police believe he may be driving a white 1990 Honda Prelude with Washington license plate AHK8429.
May be armed Explosive device Bomb technicians confirmed the device contained explosives and took it with them. No other explosive devices were found at the house, Smith said.
Police suspect Nilsson may be armed with an AK-47 and potentially dangerous, Smith said. Port Angeles Police Sgt. Barb McFall, the lead investigator on the search, said Nilsson is known to own an
AK-47, though no such weapon was found at the house in the 200 block of East Eight Street believed to be his residence. Although Nilsson has no known diagnosis of mental health issues, McFall said his girlfriend and other witnesses to the alleged domestic violence offenses believe Nilsson may be suffering from some sort of paranoia. Police have no clues as to where Nilsson might be, McFall said, though his girlfriend reported the pair enjoyed hiking in the Hurricane Ridge area of Olympic National Park. â€œThey do like to hike, so
thatâ€™s a possibility,â€? McFall said. Nilsson reportedly told his girlfriend he was heading into a wooded area of some sort and could possibly plan to travel south to Oregon, McFall said. McFall said police have no indication Nilsson is a direct threat to the public but urged that no one approach him. Instead, anyone who sees him or knows of his whereabouts should phone 9-1-1.

Leg bone unconnected to cold case DNA profile not a match to that of missing woman BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” An adult leg bone found in the sediment of newly drained Lake Aldwell on May 15 does not belong to a 41-yearold woman who was reported missing in the vicinity of a nearby resort almost 22 years ago, the Clallam County Sheriffâ€™s Office said. Suspecting that the bone might be a clue in the case of missing person Karen C. Tucker, officials matched a DNA profile of the tibia against a DNA database of missing persons that included Tucker without successfully identifying the bone as belonging to her or any other missing person, Detective Sgt. Lyman Moores said. Tucker was reported missing Jan. 5, 1991. â€œWe did not get a match,â€?
he said of the cold case. The DNA profile of the bone sample, believed to be up to 50 years old, will remain in two statewide and national databases of missing persons. â€œThis will be placed in the unidentified humanremains section,â€? Moores said Thursday. An anthropological exam will be conducted on the bone at the University of Texas to determine the personâ€™s gender, race and approximate age, he said. â€œTheyâ€™ll develop a profile of the bone, give it a number, and it will remain in CODIS [the Combined DNA Index System] under unidentified human remains,â€? Moores said. â€œHopefully in the next month or two, they can get into that.â€?
L a k e Aldwell b e h i n d Elwha Dam was drained earlier this year as part of the $325 million Tucker Elwha River Restoration Project that began in September 2011. A couple walking their dog noticed the tibia sticking out of the top layer of reservoir silt about a half-mile north of the Elwha River Bridge on U.S. Highway 101, Moores said. They turned the bone over to the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, which contacted Olympic National Park. It was determined that the bone was of human origin but was not ancient Native American remains. A search of the area found no more bones. The circumstances surrounding Tuckerâ€™s disappearance had to be recon-
structed in a 2006 investigative report â€œdue to the fact that the original case file had been lost,â€? the report said.
â€˜Whirlwind of emotionsâ€™ Tuckerâ€™s daughter, Sophie Hill, 43, of Eugene, Ore., who learned of the results of the bone examination Tuesday morning, was experiencing â€œa whirlwind of emotionsâ€? late Tuesday afternoon. â€œOf course Iâ€™m disappointed, but Iâ€™m still glad thereâ€™s someone out there who thinks this is important because I was pretty wounded by the fact that they lost all my momâ€™s case files and paperwork,â€? said Hill, a caregiver. â€œThe fact that there is someone on the job now, and new technology and databases and interconnections, that gives me more hope,â€? she said. â€œIâ€™m not totally hopeless,â€? Hill added. â€œThereâ€™s only the million possibilities until the one
The resort and its cabins were located in a remote area 10 miles west of Port Angeles. Tucker was last seen New Yearâ€™s Day in 1991, Moores said. Her disappearance was reported by her boyfriend, who has been interviewed about Tuckerâ€™s disappearance, Moores said. â€œIâ€™m not going to rule out anybody as a suspect,â€? he said. â€œAt this point, weâ€™ve pretty much exhausted all leads on this case,â€? Moores added. â€œUnless something else develops, thereâ€™s nothing we can do at this point. â€œBut this case will always remain an open case until we find her remains, until Living in cabin we find an explanation as to At the time, Tucker was why she died and how she living with her boyfriend in a died.â€? ________ cabin at the Elwha Resort near the Elwha River dam.

The last time Hill saw her mother, Hill was waving goodbye and leaving for Thanksgiving vacation, Hill said. The reconstructed report on Tuckerâ€™s disappearance included a synopsis that said Tucker had been suicidal in the past. In an earlier interview, Hill said her mother had agoraphobia, was unemployed and was living on supplemental Social Security income when she went missing. Hill said she believed that a combination of drinking and medication may have disoriented Tucker and caused a fatal accident.
â€˜Explosiveâ€™ potential for fire danger Red-flag warning issued for West End, E. Jefferson BY ARWYN RICE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
The National Weather Service has issued a redflag warning for the West End of the North Olympic Peninsula as well as the southern portion of East Jefferson County that refers to â€œexplosiveâ€? fire potential. The warning, which is for the entire Olympic Peninsula, will be in effect until 3 p.m. Saturday. â€œA combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential,â€? according to the warning issued by the National Weather Service at 8:33 a.m. Thursday. Winds are forecast at 10 to 15 mph with gusts of 20 miles per hour, while ridges on the northwest side of the Olympic Peninsula will experience winds of 15 to 20 mph, with gusts of 30 to 35 mph, the Weather Service said. Humidity is expected to drop to as low as 15 percent during the day and reach only 30 percent during overnight hours, the warning said.
Burn bans Burn bans already were in place in the region. Campfires are all but forbidden for residents and campers in the West End. The only fires permitted are those at residences or in developed campgrounds, in contained and approved fire pits, with the use of a fire screen and attended by a responsible person to monitor the fire until the ashes are cool to the touch, Forks Fire District Chief Phil Arbeiter said Wednesday afternoon. Residents are asked to clear defensible space around their homes and driveways, and to clear their roofs of combustible leaves and needles,
Arbeiter said. Arbeiter said throwing cigarette butts out of a car window are one of the most common causes of roadside fires, along with cars pulling off the road, where the hot undercarriage of the car can spark fires in grass. â€œThere is currently a $1,000 fine for throwing items out a car window,â€? he said. Unseasonably dry conditions and continuing wildfires in Central Washington prompted Clallam County to extend its annual burn ban indefinitely. Clallam County firefighting resources are limited because local crews are assisting with blazes near Wenatchee, Fire Marshal Sheila Roark Miller said last week.
East Jefferson County East Jefferson Fire-Rescue extended its outdoor burn ban to Oct. 15. The state Department of Natural Resources usually lifts its statewide ban for outdoor burning annually Oct. 1 but extended its burn ban through Sunday. â€œThe conditions for new fires still exist, even as we head into October,â€? state Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark said in a plea for caution. â€œWe are taking the unprecedented step of extending the burn ban and asking everyone to be patient and vigilant until we see some rain,â€? Goldmark said.

Co-founder of Local 20/20 given Eleanor Stopps award Woman an advocate for environmental sustainability BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND â€” The co-founder of the economic group Local 20/20 was the recipient of the eighth annual Eleanor Stopps Environmental Leadership Award at a breakfast Thursday. Judith Alexander of Port Townsend, an advocate of environmental sustainability with an emphasis on the development of local food resources who has participated in a variety of local advocacy groups, was given the award in the name of Stopps. Stopps, who died of cancer in April at the age of 92, was responsible for the 1982 establishment of the Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge, the only refuge created during the Reagan administration. The award was first given in 2005. This is the first year that Stopps did not attend the ceremony. â€œThis award is really about the community and the way we live,â€? an emotional Alexander said. â€œWe need to change the way we live so our life on Earth can be sustainable.â€? â€œWe need leaders,â€? said
Ann Murphy, executive director of the Port Townsend Marine Life Center. â€œWe need people to step out and take a leadership role, and everyone can lead something â€” whether itâ€™s gardening with your neighbors or helping with emergency preparedness. We need people to step up.â€? About 144 people attended the event, a fundraiser for the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, which is on the beach at Fort Worden State Park. It raised $51,000 for the center: $26,000 in donations and a $25,000 match from an anonymous donor.
Community building â€œJudith promotes environmental sustainability with a grass-roots community-building focus,â€? said Al Bergstein in his introduction of Alexander. â€œShe is a systems thinker who realized that meaningful change happens when individuals, neighborhoods, networks of people and whole communities are engaged in active learning and direct involvement.â€? Center programs include youth education on marine biology, and young people
were represented at the breakfast. A group of nine Swan School students presented Alexander with a large bouquet as she received her award. Jamie Landry, a former volunteer docent who is now the centerâ€™s citizen science coordinator, echoed what many students have said about their participation: that it changed their lives. â€œMost people can say one of two things about a positive or powerful experience they have had: that they were changed for the better or that they made a change for the better,â€? Landry said. â€œIâ€™m standing before you as just one example of how the marine science center does both, being changed for the better and being able to change for the better.â€?
Keynote speaker Ellen Ferguson, community relations director at the Burke Museum at the University of Washington in Seattle, was the keynote speaker. Ferguson said the marine science center provides an encouragement for youths who are interested in science, citing Port Townsend resident Joss Whittaker as an example. Whittaker, who is now working on a doctorate in
archeology at UW, told Ferguson that the center â€œchanged his life.â€? â€œJoss told me that the marine science center allowed him to do more in science than he had done before,â€? Ferguson said. â€œHe said that he was listened to and treated with respect, and they respected his intelligence, which was important to him, and now he is going to go on to do great things in the world of science.â€?
New exhibit The marine science center celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and recently opened â€œLearning from Orcas: The Story of Hope,â€? which has been in the works since 2010. The display, the centerpiece of the marine science centerâ€™s natural history exhibit, features the skeleton of a 22-foot orca, posthumously named Hope, that was found dead in 2002, beached at Dungeness Spit north of Sequim. Because of the high levels of PCBs and DDT found in the carcass, the exhibit explores how toxins affect the marine environment. â€œWe couldnâ€™t borrow from successes of other exhibits because to the best of our knowledge, an exhibit on toxics in the marine environment does not exist,â€? Murphy said. For more information or to donate, visit www. ptmsc.org.

PORT ANGELES â€” The atrium is abloom, thanks to a flock of artists who, having faced death, are determined to live life to the hilt. Through vivid hues, clay, wood, glass and an elk-hide drum, these artists share what they find beautiful: magenta roses and deeppink lilies, wild creatures, the faces of loved ones. More than 100 works are on display inside The Landing mall atrium in â€œEmbracing Life through Art . . . the Journey Back,â€? the second annual exhibition by people whose lives are changed by cancer. The show is open to the public through Oct. 31 on the ground floor of The Landing at Railroad Avenue and North Lincoln Street, and community members are invited to join the artists for a reception from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free to the show and to the reception, which will feature music by Thom Davis. In addition, â€œEmbracingâ€? will be part of Port Angelesâ€™ Second Weekend Art Walk, with another reception from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. While the art itself â€” from the large-scale canvases to the lithe silver necklaces â€” provides plenty to see, this show offers another look inside the artistsâ€™ hearts.
Artistsâ€™ reflections Posted beside each cluster of work is a black-andwhite portrait of the artist, made by Port Angeles photographer Brenda Johnson, and a short written reflection. â€œIn many ways, it is the beginning of a new life,â€? writes painter Hazelle Hout, who faced breast cancer in 2000. â€œSo move forward, and enjoy your life in every way possible.â€? Houtâ€™s acrylic paintings show the things that make her life sweet: her roses in full bloom and her cribbage partner. And at the end of her artistâ€™s statement, she adds â€œmy heroâ€? â€” her husband, Jerry, who has seen her through everything. In another corner of the atrium is the Tribute Wall, where five artists have

Among the tributes is one to Landing mall owner and arts patron Paul Cronauer, who died Aug. 16 after a long struggle with the disease. Sky Heatherton and Sharon Shenar, organizers of â€œEmbracing Life,â€? will present their artwork to Cronauerâ€™s widow, Sarah, after the show closes. â€œEmbracing Lifeâ€? has the power to bring people together regardless of their differences. This is what contributing artists have seen from the day they began hanging their work. Soon after a few of them gathered for photographs Thursday morning, the artists were busy chatting, hugging â€” and then talking animatedly with people who had stopped in to see what was up inside The Landing. â€œThe other day as we were setting up, two ladies from Canada came in. We were telling them what the show is all about,â€? said Pamela Dick, whose abstract digital art is in the exhibition.

â€œNever give up. Somehow we must find that wellspring inside that contains Hope and Creative Thought,â€? she writes. Then: â€œLove is the way to ultimate healing.â€? David Haight, a Port Angeles artist known for his irreverence and giant â€œMr. Katâ€? sculptures, writes in his statement that cancer of the tonsils took just about everything from him. Art is what he has left, Haight notes â€” plus a â€œfestive stinkinâ€™ attitude.â€? That has seen him through the past four years, during which heâ€™s been a prolific graphic designer, painter, sculptor and partygoer. Rachel Braun, diagnosed with leukemia a few weeks before her fifth birthday â€” 27 years ago â€” has undergone a bone marrow transplant, numerous complications and a second affliction with cancer, this time of the colon. Her watercolor paintings, of delicate flowers and a majestic cedar trunk, leap out at the passer-by. They fairly command a closer look at beauty and strength. â€œWhen you have a disease like cancer, it tries to steal your life,â€? Braun said. â€œMy artwork helps me get back some of that life.â€? In â€œEmbracing,â€? sheâ€™s â€œnot putting these out to sell, sell, sell.â€? Instead, Braun added, â€œthe artists are trying to express and open themselves.â€?

PORT ANGELES â€” A portable defibrillator and three local law enforcement officers could have been the difference between life and death for a 22-year-old man who was found unconscious in alley off Peabody Street earlier this week. At about 3 a.m. Monday, a passing Port Angeles police officer saw a man collapsed next to a bicycle on an alley off Peabody Street between First and Front streets and called for additional help, said Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith.
The artwork filling the atriumâ€™s two large rooms is as varied as the artistsâ€™ life experiences. Thereâ€™s an enormous scenic photograph by Cynthia Isenberger; silversmith Randolf Fosterâ€™s jewelry; the elk-hide drum by Makah tribal member Regena Bain and resplendent lilies by Melissa Penic, as well as Heathertonâ€™s fish, crustaceans and other animals painted in the Australian aboriginal style. True Heart, a Port Townsend artist diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2010, contributed a ceramic creation to the show, along with a few words.

A new era: Pipes displace ditches A SEMI-TRUCK LOADED with long sections of big blue pipe rounded the corner from Kitchen-Dick Road onto Spath Road near Sequim on Monday morning. Work is Martha M. under way on Ireland the final stretch of the comprehensive, $3.5 million, Dungeness Irrigation Group Water Conservation Project begun in 2008. When irrigation water drawn from the Dungeness River reaches Ireland Farms next May, it will flow through those blue pipes instead of in an open ditch. On May 1, 1895, the dry Sequim prairie first drank water that flowed from the Dungeness
through man-made, hand-dug ditches. The community celebrated, and 117 years later and counting, it continues to celebrate annually. Irrigation ushered in a century of progress. The prairie bloomed. Agriculture developed and flourished. The town grew, supported by 150-plus dairy farms, a creamery, a farm cooperative and diverse stores and services. The river still teemed with fish. In the 1960s, outside market forces drove economic change. Farms were subdivided into residential communities. Most of the dairies and their cows were displaced by retirees packing fishing poles. The salmon runs became scarce even as less and less water was withdrawn from the Dungeness to irrigate less and
less farmland. They called it progress. Understanding of river function evolved, setting a good many old-timers’ heads to shaking in wonder at changes made in the name of more progress. By 1998, the irrigators had voluntarily limited how much water they took from the river, and irrigation season was restricted to the period from May to mid-September. Next came plans to encase the ditches in pipe to prevent water from being lost into the ground on its way to the fields. Recharging groundwater never was a legal use of irrigation water, we were told. Within a decade, about a quarter of the main canal and three major laterals in the Dungeness system had been piped. By the start of the 2013 irrigation season, they should all be piped.
Peninsula Voices Careful voting What I dislike most about elections is being treated as a fool. Thanks to some creative campaigning that managed to become acceptable practice, we are bombarded with half truths, outright lies and any sort of fiction the spin doctors wish to put before us. It is up to intelligent voters to fact-check the information offered in campaign ads and broadcasts to sort out the truth among the garbage. Some folks accept as truth the distortions put out there because they read it online or heard it on the radio or someone they trust said it was true. Along with the right of free speech comes the responsibility to check out what is real and what is not. Consider that some information is designed only to provoke your emotions.

Romney’s quiver filled with zingers SO HOW ARE you enjoying Debate Season, people? As compared to the prior Convention Season. Or that little patch in between that has now become known as Reducing Expectations Season. And before that, of course, there was Primary Season, Gail and, before that, the Collins French and Indian War. On Wednesday night, as the debate era opened, Mitt Romney definitely seemed more energetic — was there ever before a presidential candidate who could sound that enthusiastic while vowing to defund Big Bird? But Romney had that funny look on his face whenever President Obama was talking. Somewhere between a person who is trying to overlook an unpleasant smell and a guy who is trying to restrain himself from pointing out that his car is much nicer than your car. Obama seemed tired or bored, and he fell way behind in the much-anticipated battle of the zingers. The president thinks these debates are ridiculous, and he may well be right. But, truly, it would have been a better idea to keep the thought to himself. On the other hand, he was the only one who wants Donald Trump to pay more taxes. If you watched the whole thing, you now know that the president has taken to calling his health care reform law “Obamacare,” which is really a tad
strange. Also that Mitt Romney will not admit that any of his proposals could involve unpleasant details. Taxes will go down, but not revenues. The health care reform plan will go away, except for all the popular parts, which will magically remain intact. “At some point, I think the American people have to ask themselves: Is the reason that Governor Romney is keeping all these plans-to-replace secret because they’re too good? Is it because that somehow middle-class families are going to benefit too much from them?” Obama retorted. But this was about an hour into the debate. Romney, on the other hand, was a veritable zinger arsenal from the get-go. (“Mr. President, you’re entitled, as the president, to your own airplane and to your own house, but not to your own facts.”) And what are we to make of all this? There wasn’t any car crash, but we have been trained to regard every twitch, tic and failure to look engaged as a matter of possibly cosmic consequence. The next leader of the most powerful nation on earth needs to be the person with the best comebacks, but the fewest strange facial expressions. It’s a little like one of those fairy tales where the citizens of the kingdom pick their next king on the basis of a race to find the feather of the golden swan. Do debates really matter? The experts say that, barring total disaster, the answer is actually no.
The committed are already committed. (In some cases, really, really committed. Witness the large proportion of Ohio Republicans who told a pollster that they thought Mitt Romney was the person most responsible for killing Osama bin Laden.) It’s all about the voters with failure to commit. CNN managed to corral some of them to register their responses to the debate’s every jab and parry. I kept peeping at the lines recording their emotions, and I swear there were long stretches where the Undecideds nodded off. Still, you don’t want to mess these things up. No candidate wants to repeat the saga of Rick Lazio, who ran against Hillary Clinton for the United States Senate in New York in 2000. During a critical debate, Lazio tried to be clever by walking over and asking Clinton to sign a campaign fund-raising pledge. It made him look less like a senator than a stalker, and now, a dozen years later, Hillary Clinton is known as one of the most beloved figures on the planet, while Lazio is known as the guy who once violated Hillary Clinton’s space. All I know is that you deserve a hand, interested citizen. You really have been through a lot. You were there for the Rick Perry meltdown and the Mitch Daniels blip, and the period when we had to get up to speed on Newt Gingrich’s marital history. And now we’ve still got two more presidential debates plus one vice-presidential debate. Then we will be moving into the final two weeks, sometimes known as the Actually Having an Election period. Did you read John Noble Wilford’s article in The New York Times about the discovery of the remains of a dinosaur the size of a house cat? A paleontologist told Wilford that it might have looked like a “nimble two-legged porcupine.” I am telling you this because the race for the Republican nomination first began at about the time these creatures became extinct. Michele Bachmann shot the last one when it hopped across her front yard. ________ Gail Collins is a columnist with The New York Times. Maureen Dowd, our regular Friday columnist, is off today.
Debate: Did Romney strike fatal blow? OBVIOUSLY, MITT ROMNEY won Wednesday night’s debate. His passion, charisma, Dick energy, eye conMorris tact, personality, force of argument and earnest compassion contrasted with a washed out, tired, hesitant President Obama. But seeing the debate from a professional’s eye, Romney scored a number of key victories in the turf wars that underlie this campaign. These victories are likely to last and will shape the final month of this race long after the glow from Romney’s performance has faded. ■ Romney got out from under Obama’s character assassination negative ads. By failing to discuss the Cayman Islands bank account, the 47 percent speech, Bain Capital or the tax return issue during the debate, he almost dismissed them from the campaign. Goodbye two hundred million in advertising. If Obama really believed that Romney was as callous, heartless and dishonest as his ads make him out to be, he would have raised the issues in the debate. It almost belies the statement, “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message,” that begins or ends every one of his negative ads. If the candidate doesn’t believe
in his own negative attacks enough to articulate them in a debate, why should the rest of us base our vote on them? ■ Romney insulated himself — with Obama’s consent — from the doubts of the elderly about his policy on their benefits. After the 47 percent comments, Romney risked losing the elderly for fear that he meant to curtail their entitlements. But Obama helpfully agreed that his Social Security policy did not differ from Romney’s at all and that either way the benefits would be OK. And he agreed that neither he nor his opponent would cut Medicare for those now over 65 or those closing in on retirement. So the 47 percent is now aimed at welfare, food stamps and Medicaid, the target Romney originally intended, and Obama let him get away with it. ■ Obama let Romney sell the notion that he was cutting Medicare for current beneficiaries by $716 billion and let Romney repeat that stat without contradiction. Obama could have embarrassed Romney by pointing out that Paul Ryan kept that cut in his budget (he has since backed away from it) but didn’t do so. And he let Romney inject the 15 member rationing board into the debate without trying to blunt Romney’s accusation that it would decide on who gets what treatment. Now this campaign will be about two issues, not just one. The economy and Obamacare
will be the fulcrums on which this race with hinge. ■ Romney was able to make the debate, and therefore the race, about big issues like the size of government, the impact of taxes on growth, the need to drill for oil, Obamacare and rationing. He elevated not just his game but the race to these fundamental questions on all of which Republicans and Romney have an advantage. ■ He clearly explained how a tax increase for the “wealthy” was really a tax increase on the small businesses that hire half of all American workers. By explaining that these owners are taxed as individuals not as corporations (Subchapter S) without getting into the weeds, he made us understand that fighting these taxes is not about battling for yachts and private planes but about creating jobs. Therefore, Romney took away Obama’s negative campaign, his class warfare, his entitlement issue, the Medi-scare tactic and much of the president’s case. In subsequent debates, Obama will be bound by what he said last night. He cannot undo his concessions and without doing so, it will be very hard for him to reconquer the ground he has lost. ________ Dick Morris, a syndicated columnist, is a former advisor to former President Bill Clinton.

Odd: Peepholes in closets reminders of past to May of 2005, crews with J Grice Construction, a Port Angeles-based contractor specializing in foundation repair, worked to replace the foundation without damaging the building itself. Jayson Grice, owner of J Grice Construction, who has worked on a number of historic building renovations in Port Angeles, said Wallâ€™s project was one of the most challenging with which he has ever been involved. â€œThe heaviest building Iâ€™ve ever lifted,â€? Grice said. Once the building was perched on massively strong hydraulic jacks, new concrete foundations could be poured to replace the crumbling ones.
CONTINUED FROM A1 The buildingâ€™s history is written on the interior of the building, with the planks that comprise the ballroom floor marked with the heels of womenâ€™s shoes from hundreds of dances past. The tall closets lining a long wall between the kitchen at the rear of the second floor once held the ceremonial robes of the Odd Fellows officers, who presided over the lodgeâ€™s regular meetings, Wall said.
Peepholes The full-size closet doors look normal except for a fist-size peephole with a dinner-plate-size piece of wood designed to slide out of the way and allow communication between those in the meeting hall and those in the dressing rooms. Harry Coulter, grand secretary of the Odd Fellows Grand Lodge of Washington in Buckley, said the peepholes would have been used as part of one of the Odd Fellows rituals but stayed mum on their exact purpose. â€œThatâ€™s all the information I can give you on it,â€? Coulter said. The closest operating Odd Fellows lodge to Port Angeles is Chimacum Lodge 343 in Port Hadlock, Coulter said. The second floor hosts the large Odd Fellowssâ€™ ballroom, once host to Odd Fellows rituals and dances, with a small bonus room

Wall also has collected a slide show of images taken during the years-long restoration of the building that will be displayed throughout the open house.
Paint job The restoration images show the utter transformation of a building whose exterior once sported peeling white paint in place of the canary-yellow with blueish-purple trim so visible today. The exterior paint job was just the first step in an estimated $350,000 worth
of renovation that Wall and a collection of local contractors undertook to overhaul a building that Wall almost regretted purchasing. â€œIt was a scary place,â€? Wall said when describing the condition in which she found the building. â€œLike a haunted house. â€œIt was really hard to believe how bad it was.â€? Moss in some places on the second floor, peeling plaster nearly everywhere and a foundation that had sunk almost a foot in the rear were just some of the issues Wall faced when she started renovating the building in 2004. Initially, Wall said no
contractors wanted to tackle the project because the construction market was still healthy at the time, and no crews wanted to attempt something as fraught with unknowns as a historic building renovation. But contractors she found, and the first thing Wall and her team had to tackle was the crumbling foundation, a foundation that, if it completely failed, would endanger any other restoration work done on the building. The building had sunk 10 inches on the east side and 8 inches on the west, Wall explained. Additionally, the difference in heights of the buildingâ€™s sides also was forcing the wood emergency stairwell on the rear of the building to tilt away from the structure. From November of 2004
Down to solid ground
wood that forms the skeleton of the building, none of which Wall could bear to part with throughout the course of the restoration. â€œI never throw away wood, almost to the point of stupidity,â€? she said with a laugh. The kind of wood found in the historic building canâ€™t really be found anywhere else, Wall explained, and is so fine-grained and highquality that it would be used to make musical instruments today.
Original wood Wall has kept as much of the original 1912 wood as possible, from the old pilings still stored in the buildingâ€™s basement to the lovingly restored trim and moldings in the main living space on the second floor. â€œ[Wall] worked her butt off on that building, no doubt about it,â€? Grice said. Wall said she has seen a number of old Odd Fellows buildings repurposed for myriad uses, but the mostoften use seems to be as art galleries because of the spacious ballrooms with high ceilings Odd Fellows buildings most always include. Whatever a new owner might plan to do with the canary-yellow piece of history, Wall said, she hopes the next owner will continue to maintain the building that has witnessed the growth and change of Port Angeles since 1912. â€œI feel like it belongs to Port Angeles more than it does to me,â€? Wall said. â€œIâ€™m just the caretaker of it.â€?
Before any pouring could happen, however, holes for the concrete had to be dug down to solid ground, Grice explained. Since the building effectively sits on compacted sand, solid ground was between 6 and 7 feet below the surface, he said. The crumbling concrete foundations Grice and crew replaced had taken the place of thick wooden pilings installed when the building was constructed in the late 1900s. The massive pilings, akin to modern-day telephone poles, had completely rotted away aboveground but looked just like they did the day they were installed underground, Grice said. â€œI canâ€™t imagine how they even pounded the pil________ ings in back then,â€? he said.

Farm tour to feature ‘how to’ BY DIANE URBANI
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
Across this country, family farms are disappearing. Big agriculture and housing tracts are taking over — at least that’s the tired, old story out there. But here on the North Olympic Peninsula, mom-and-pop operations — a creamery; fields of purple, green and gold; ranches with horses and alpacas — still flourish. And this Saturday, they’re fixing to prove it by inviting everybody — young and otherwise — for some schooling. The 16th annual Clallam County Farm Tour, a circuit of six farms just a few miles from one another, has a “how to” theme this year, along with live music, lunch by local chefs, hayrides and plenty of apples, garlic and lavender buds to take home. “It’s a good way to see what’s happening in agriculture in the valley,” said Nash Huber, founder of Nash’s Organic Produce, where cooking demonstrations, pumpkin carving and other activities will happen during the tour from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday. Admission to the entire tour is $10 per vehicle “no matter how many people you have stuffed into your car,” said Clea Rome, director of Clallam County’s Washington State University Extension office and coordinator of the event.

Bicyclists For bicyclists, though, the farm tour is free. The Olympic Discovery Trail is a thread running through the western part of it, and the layout is fairly friendly: The Lazy J Tree Farm is 1.4 miles from Trade Winds Alpacas, for example, and Trade Winds is 1.1 miles from the Freedom Farm equestrian center. The longest distance between farms is between Trade Winds and the Dungeness Valley Creamery: 7.7 miles.

Meteors light up our October skies PENINSULA DAILY NEWS NEWS SOURCES
FOR THE NEXT few nights, the North Olympic Peninsula sky will be spitting out shooting stars. Look for the annual Draconid meteor shower in the northwest and directly overhead right as night falls. You donâ€™t have to wait for the usual midnight-todawn time slot for this shower. It is predicted to produce the greatest number of meteors shortly after sunset Sunday night. Monday night should have some meteors, too. Most of the meteors will seem to radiate from the head of the constellation of Draco the Dragon (the two bright stars in Dracoâ€™s head are Eltanin and Rastaban). A waning moon will allow great viewing â€” and, hopefully, there wonâ€™t be many clouds. This is a hard-to-predict meteor shower. It often offers only a handful of languid meteors per hour. But you never know for sure with the Draconids. There were awesome displays in 1933 and 1946 â€” with thousands of meteors per hour seen in those years. Even last year â€” in October 2011 â€” European observers saw more than 600 Draconid meteors per hour. The Draconids will be followed by the Orionid meteor shower Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 20-21.
Orionids are next Seeming to radiate out from the constellation Orion the Hunter, the Orionids will peak sometime between 2 a.m. and dawn Oct. 21, with up to 15 meteors an hour through the southsoutheast sky and overhead. Fortunately for meteor aficionados, the moon will

Starwatch set around midnight, so it wonâ€™t pollute the sky with light during the prime hours. Because meteor watching doesnâ€™t require any special equipment â€” binoculars arenâ€™t necessary; your eyes do just fine â€” it is a great activity for families and friends. Just find a dark place â€” the turnouts to Hurricane Ridge, the road above Deer Park, the backcountry hills south of Chimacum and the Mount Walker viewpoint near Quilcene can be ideal â€” bundle up, spread out a blanket or relax in a reclining lawn chair and look up. Add a thermos of hot chocolate and some snacks, and youâ€™ve got a party. Annual meteor showers, such as the Draconids, Orionids and the Perseids in August, occur when the Earth passes through a ring of debris cast off by comets as they orbit the sun. The Orionids come from none other than Halleyâ€™s Comet.
With the constellations of autumn wheeling into the Peninsula evening sky, what better time to blow the dust off your telescopes and reacquaint yourself with the wonders of the heavens? Several planets are prominent during October. Unlike stars, which twinkle constantly, planets shine with a steady, unblinking light. â– Jupiter remains well-situated for evening viewing throughout October, shining brightly in the east-northeast after sunset. The moon and Jupiter will be fairly close together Saturday night. â– The large, pearly light that shines in the east before sunrise throughout October is Venus. One look, and you know why this planet, even in this day and age, still gets reported as a UFO from time to time. It is visible even after the sun comes up. There will be a close

first glance thatâ€™s what it really looks like. You can find it almost directly overhead early in the evening. You can quickly recognize its tail star, Deneb, as the easternmost member of the Summer Triangle. The swanâ€™s neck extends to the southwest. Very near the central star of the neck is Cygnus X-1, a strong source of X-rays and now accepted as a black hole. Albireo, the star representing the swanâ€™s head, is a gorgeous orange-and-blue double star that can be viewed through binoculars or a small telescope.

Known to the ancient Celts as Samhain (rhymes with COW-en), it began at sundown and marked the beginning of the dark half of the year. That night, all the evil spirits that had been cooped up since May Day were let loose upon the land. To alternately ward them off and appease them, the ancients set out lanterns and edible bribes, whence our tradition of trick-or-treating.

Two giant, rare emerald gemstones weighing 1,650 and 1,418 carats each â€” as well as a collection of 35 jewelry-size emeralds â€” will be the grand prizes in three $10-per-ticket raffles to raise funds for science scholarships for Clallam County students. Each of the large emeralds and the collection of smaller gems has been appraised in the $50,000 range or more. A $1-per-ticket raffle will give winners a choice between 100 smaller stones, strings of stones carved into beads or small gem collections. Raffle money will be donated to the Port Angeles and Sequim education foundations and to Crescent, Clallam Bay and Quillayute Valley school districts to fund scholarships for students intending to study earth sciences.
