Popularity of ‘Save A Spot’ taxes system Ferry reservations blitz crashes site its first day BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Customer demand apparently overtaxed the new “Save A Spot” reservation system for state ferries early on its first day Wednesday, but the glitch was fixed by early afternoon. The Washington State Ferries reservation system for the summer season was scheduled to begin Wednesday on both the Port Townsend-Coupeville route and for commercial trucks and buses on San Juan Island routes, which include Orcas, Shaw, Lopez and Friday Harbor. The system was taken down shortly after it went online because of what were described as “technical difficulties” but was back up just after 1 p.m.
‘Exceeded the server capacity’ “The demand on the system exceeded the server capacity,” said Joy Goldenberg, ferry spokeswoman. “We had done stress tests before starting service, but the problem wasn’t identified at that time,” she said. The new system allows reservations of up to six months in advance to be made for the summer season, which starts Sunday. Reservations have been available on the Anacortes-Sidney, B.C., route since June 4. That was not affected by the server problem. The “Save A Spot” system allows passengers to reserve a spot online on the ferry by opening up to three types of accounts. TURN

Game farm celebrates 40 years with expansion BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM — Marking the Olympic Game Farm’s 40 years as a Dungeness Valley tourist magnet, Robert Beebe, farm president, said the captive-bred animal park’s facilities have improved and are expanding to meet growing visitation. Beebe, who took over the family-owned farm’s business operations in 2008, addressed more than 50 people at Tuesday’s Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce luncheon at SunLand Golf & Country Club. He said overall revenues at the Ward Road park have increased 52 percent, which he attributed to aggressive marketing that is drawing larger crowds. His grandfather, Lloyd Beebe,
Robert Beebe said the farm has opened a new restaurant in partnership with Hardy’s Market of Sequim and Carlsborg, remodeled its gift shop and ticket booth, and improved its aquarium. Animal shelters and enclosures have been upgraded, and a large lion and tiger enclosure are under construction, he said. Beebe played a video that highlighted farm upgrades. The game farm has seen 27,780 visitors to date this year, he said, which in trickle-down dolJEFF CHEW/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS lars “bleeds over to the business Robert Beebe with 4-month- people in Sequim,” he said.

Spent $460,000 in 4 years To improve, expand and maintain the facility, Beebe said the farm since 2008 has spent $460,000 for local supplies.

The animals require thousands of bales of hay grown on the farm or donated by neighbors who have fields but don’t need the feed. “We’ve had a lot of support from our neighbors who learn from the fire marshal here that they have to cut their grass, whether they use it to feed animals or not,” Beebe said. The farm’s animals also go through about 100 loaves of wheat bread each week, according to Beebe. Rabbits and peacocks have been dropped off there overnight, he said, and his staff routinely checks fencing around the farm’s perimeter to ensure that wild predators such as coyotes are not sneaking in to attack animals.

Newsmakers Celebrity scoop ■ By The Associated Press
Tom Cruise nets 4th-ever Friars award THE FRIARS CLUB, best-known for searing celebrity roasts, held the insults when it toasted Tom Cruise. The actor received the fourth-ever Friars Club Entertainment Icon Award on Tuesday Cruise night, placing him in the same company as Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra. Fresh off a whirlwind week of premieres for “Rock of Ages,” the actor, who turns 50 next month, said
he’s amazed his career is still going so strong. “I was hoping. After my first film, I remember thinking I just wanted the opportunity to do it again,” he said on the red carpet. Cruise had been slated to receive the award from Jerry Lewis, but the comedian had a health scare just before the ceremony. Lewis’ publicist said Wednesday that he was OK after being hospitalized overnight for low blood sugar.

A3 Briefly: Nation Sandusky jury is told about janitor’s claims BELLEFONTE, Pa. — Jurors in Jerry Sandusky’s trial are hearing about the alleged sexual abuse of a boy whose identity is unknown to prosecutors. The testimony began Wednesday afternoon after the judge ruled that co-workers could tell the jurors about what a janitor reported seeing in the Penn State showers. The janitor, Jim Calhoun, has dementia and wasn’t able to take the stand. Ron Petrosky said that when he encountered Calhoun in a football team locker room more than a decade ago, the janitor told him he’d seen Sandusky making a boy perform oral sex on him. Petrosky said Calhoun’s face was white and his hands were trembling. The 68-year-old Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, is fighting 52 criminal counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years.
Giffords aide wins seat PHOENIX — Ron Barber, who almost lost his life in the Arizona shooting rampage that wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, won a special election to succeed her, giving Democrats a psychological boost after last week’s failed effort to recall Wisconsin’s Republican governor.
Appearing with Giffords at a Tucson hotel after his victory Tuesday night, Barber told supporters, “Life takes unexpected Barber turns, and here we are, thanks to you.” Giffords hugged him and kissed his forehead. Barber defeated Republican Jesse Kelly, who narrowly lost to Giffords in 2010 in a competitive district that Republicans have won in the last two presidential elections.
Suspect turns self in MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The three-day hunt for a man charged with killing three people near Auburn University ended with the suspect walking up the steps of an Alabama courthouse and peacefully turning himself in to a U.S. Marshal waiting inside. Hours after his surrender, Desmonte Leonard was being held early Wednesday in a Montgomery jail. He’d been on the run since Saturday, when authorities said he opened fire after a fight over a woman at a pool party. The manhunt was vexing for authorities, who first dealt with misinformation from people who know Leonard, then narrowly missed catching him at a Montgomery house they searched inch-by-inch for nine hours.

Police seek surgeon in N.Y. fatal shooting Former Army weapons expert had trained at Tacoma center THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Police here say a trauma surgeon is a “person of interest” in a fatal shooting Wednesday at a hospital and warn the former Army Special Forces weapons expert may be armed and dangerous. The early morning shooting death of a 33-year-old woman locked down the Erie County Medical Center complex for more than four hours. The woman was shot four times in the stairwell of one of the hospital’s buildings. Later Wednesday, police blocked the road leading to Dr. Timothy Jorden Jr.’s home in an isolated area of private Lake View
homes near the Lake Erie shore. SWAT team members in camouflage arrived in unmarked SUVs. A helicopter flew over the house, then left. Police have not yet identified the victim.
Licensed in 2002 Jorden, 49, became licensed to practice medicine in New York in 2002 and has treated patients at the medical center and other major hospitals in the area. He has a medical degree from the University at Buffalo and trained at the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma. Police Commissioner Daniel
Derenda said the morning shooting wasn’t a random act. Police searched the building adjacent to the hospital’s main building for the shooter more than four hours after the victim was gunned down inside. The shooting prompted a fourhour lockdown of the medical center’s 65-acre campus that was lifted at around noon for all buildings except the one being searched by police. Incoming patients were diverted to another hospital during the lockdown. A police helicopter circled the medical center’s campus. Officials said as many as 400 patients and about half of the hospital’s 2,000 employees were on the grounds at the time of the shooting. “Things are well under control by Buffalo police” and other law enforcement agencies, Mayor Byron Brown said.

10,000 germ species live in and on healthy people THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — They live on your skin, up your nose, in your gut — enough bacteria, fungi and other microbes that collected together could weigh, amazingly, a few pounds. Now, scientists have mapped just which critters normally live in or on us and where, calculating that healthy people can share their bodies with more than 10,000 species of microbes. Don’t say “eeew” just yet. Many of these organisms work to keep humans healthy, and results reported Wednesday from the government’s Human Microbiome Project define what’s normal in the mysterious netherworld.
“This is a whole new way of looking at human biology.” DR. PHILLIP TARR NIH researcher One surprise: It turns out that nearly everybody harbors low levels of some harmful types of bacteria, pathogens that are known for causing specific infections.
Bugs quietly coexist But when a person is healthy — like the 242 U.S. adults who volunteered to be tested for the project — those bugs simply quietly coexist with benign or helpful microbes, perhaps kept in check by them.
The next step is to explore what doctors really want to know: Why do the bad bugs harm some people and not others? Already the findings are reshaping scientists’ views of how people stay healthy, or not. “This is a whole new way of looking at human biology and human disease, and it’s aweinspiring,” said Dr. Phillip Tarr of Washington University at St. Louis, a lead researcher in the $173 million project, funded by the National Institutes of Health. “These bacteria are not passengers,” Tarr stressed. “They are metabolically active. As a community, we now have to reckon with them like we have to reckon with the ecosystem in a forest.”

Nation: Prosecutors drop charges against Edwards
Nation: JetBlue passengers sue over fears about pilot
World: Uniform sought in Guantanamo tribunal
EVERYTHING IS BIGGER in Texas, the saying goes, and that is now also true of its prison system. California used to have the nation’s largest state prison system, topping 173,000 inmates at its peak in 2006. But since a law took effect last year that shifts responsibility for less serious criminals to county jails, the state has reduced its prison population and is no longer the largest in the nation. California now has fewer than 136,000 state inmates, eclipsed by about 154,000 in Texas. Florida previously was third, according to 2010 figures, and currently has about 100,000 inmates.
FEDERAL PROSECUTORS HAVE filed an order dismissing the remaining criminal charges against John Edwards. A North Carolina jury acquitted the former presidential candidate last month on one count of accepting illegal campaign contributions. It deadlocked on five other counts. A statement issued by the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday said prosecutors will not seek to retry Edwards on the five unresolved counts. Edwards was accused of masterminding a scheme to use about $1 million in secret payments from two wealthy political donors to hide his pregnant mistress.
TEN PASSENGERS FILED a lawsuit Wednesday against JetBlue Airways, saying they feared for their lives when a pilot had to be physically restrained after running through the cabin yelling about Jesus and al-Qaida on a New York-toLas Vegas flight in March. The lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Queens, claims the airline was “grossly negligent” in allowing Capt. Clayton Osbon to fly. A flight attendant’s ribs were bruised as passengers tried to restrain Osbon, but no one on board was seriously injured. The March 27 flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas.
THE MAN WHO has called himself the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks wants to wear military-style clothing at his war crimes trial in Guantanamo, one of his attorneys said Wednesday. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has asked to wear a camouflage field jacket and camouflage turban as he goes on trial with four others at the U.S. base in Cuba on charges that include murder and terrorism. Officials rejected clothing requested by other defendants as inappropriate. But lawyers are asking the judge to overrule that, arguing that Mohammed is seeking to wear items customarily worn by members of a militia.

Highway 112 near Place Road at about 8 a.m. that day in August, the family group was traveling to Neah Bay to attend the Makah Days festival. The State Patrol said Boyd had a 0.12 percent blood-alcohol level from a blood sample taken 95 minutes after the wreck and a 0.079 percent level about two hours after the wreck. The legal limit in Washington is 0.08 percent.
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A man charged with vehicular homicide in the death of a First Nations man from British Columbia has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in July. Steven W. Boyd, 49, of Port Angeles pleaded guilty Wednesday to alcohol-related vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault in connection with an early morning Aug. 25 collision that killed Ahousaht First Nation member Darrell Campbell, 49, of Ahousat, B.C., and seriously injured Campbell’s brother and niece. Superior Court Judge Ken Williams set sentencing for 1 p.m. July 23 but denied Boyd’s request for a furlough. Boyd wanted to spend time “getting his affairs in order” and visiting with his father, who has terminal cancer and is not expected to survive the approximately five-year prison term Boyd probably will receive, said Alex Stalker of Clallam Public Defender, who represents Boyd. Boyd’s father was in the courtroom Wednesday.

Steven Boyd enters Clallam County Superior Court on Wednesday. In January, Boyd said he was considering accepting a plea offer that would have resulted in a five-year prison sentence, but he changed his mind in February. About 30 relatives of Darrell Campbell, including his brother Angus Campbell, 57, who still walks with the aid of a cane, and niece Sophie Campbell, 18, who also was seriously injured, attended the hearing. The morning of the wreck, which occurred on state

families filed out of the courtroom after Steven Boyd’s guilty plea. Jerre Boyd would not comment on the case. “I’m doing as good as I can, and that’s about it,” he said. Johns said he and other family members probably would go to the crash site later Wednesday and “say a prayer-song for our loved one.” Stalker said in January that he would challenge the blood-alcohol tests and that a new witness had come forward to testify. According to the State Patrol report, a log-truck driver traveling on Highway 112 the morning of the collision said the sun was “extremely bright” at the time of the wreck. “Mr. Boyd never really wanted to go through a trial and put everyone through that,” Stalker said after Wednesday’s hearing. “That’s the nature of the case,” he said. “They continually evolve.”
Family members are expected to speak at the sentencing, said Pat Johns of Neah Bay, who said he spoke for the Campbell family. Family members were relieved that “the back and forth, back and forth” of the case was over, Johns said. “Now that [Boyd] takes responsibility and pled guilty to [counts] one, two and three, this is closure to our family,” Johns said. Johns said Campbell and Boyd family members had spoken since the wreck ________ occurred.

A Great Rate!
About $2,000 already has been raised, she said, and she expects the team to make its goal since an anonymous donor has promised to match any funds raised. The team, which consists of six girls from age 13 to 15, trains six days a week at the Mountain View Pool at 1919 Blaine St. The program is not affiliated with the Port Townsend public school system, though all the swimmers are members of the high school swim team, Matkins said.
Physically demanding Matkins, who competed as a synchronized swimmer when she was younger, said it is a physically demanding sport that requires a tremendous amount of practice. The routines go on for four minutes and are coordinated by counting. A swimmer associates each count with an action, and each swimmer responds according to the numbers. “It is a real challenge,” Matkins said. “There is no other sport where you depend so much on your teammates and where you need to be in complete sync, mentally and physically, with what they are doing,” she added.
Daughters join team Two of Matkins’ daughters — Keira Matkins, 14, and Tanner Matthew, 15 — are on the team. “People who have been doing this have the best work ethic,” Kiera said. “They learn teamwork. “The purpose is to do something hard and make it look easy,” she added. Tanner said synchronized swimming requires a variety of skills. “You need to have the flexibility of a gymnast, the grace of a dancer and the strength of a wrestler,” she said.

Donations to the Jazmin Nicholaysen Fund will help Kristina Van Auken cover her daughter’s medical expenses, which include weekly rounds of chemotherapy at Seattle Children’s Hospital. The account was set up at First Federal, a locally owned community banking institution with branches in Port Angeles, Sequim, Port Townsend and Forks. The checking account number for the Jazmin Nicholaysen Fund is 0349810911, Van Auken said.

PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Democratic Party will celebrate the passage of legislation permitting same-sex marriage — and begin to prepare for a fight against a referendum vote on the measure — on Saturday. The celebration at the Port Angeles Yacht Club, 1305 Marine Drive, will include a free all-ages potluck from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and a dance party featuring DJ Schmeejay and DJ Transport from 8 p.m. to midnight. A $10 minimum donation is suggested for the dance party, which is for 21 and older. The event is open to members of the public who support marriage equality, according to a statement. “We are celebrating the Legislature’s vote and ramping up for the referendum fight,” said Matthew Randazzo, chairman of the Clallam County Democratic Party. A referendum on samesex marriage qualified for the November ballot, the Secretary of State’s Office announced Tuesday. Referendum 74 seeks to overturn a law allowing same-sex marriage in the state. The measure was passed by the state Legislature and signed by Gov. Chris Gregoire earlier this year. It originally was scheduled to take effect last Thursday, but that has been put on hold pending the November referendum vote. At Saturday’s event, “we’ll be taking donations and, equally important, asking people to become involved — be sure they run out to vote and encourage others to do the same,” said Jack Slowriver, vice chairwoman of the county Democratic Party, who is coordinating the celebration. “This is the first Democratic-sponsored Pride Event in Clallam County history,” Slowriver said, “and we invite everyone who supports marriage equality to join us this weekend for a relaxed, casual celebration of this huge civil-rights accomplishment.” For more information, email Slowriver at Jack Slowriver@gmail.com.
body instead of protecting it. The disease affects only about 1 in 200,000 kids. Jazmin was diagnosed with LCH after experiencing a sharp ear pain in February. Doctors determined that the condition had eaten half of her right inner-ear bone. The child has lost her hair as a result of the ongoing chemotherapy. Van Auken and others have shaved their own heads to show support. Jazmin loves school, her mother said. She graduated from Little Sprouts Christian Preschool on Friday. She refused to miss class despite the taxing chemotherapy and drug regimen. Jazmin has another year of chemotherapy ahead. The good news is 80 percent to 90 percent of children recover from LCH with treatment. More information on LCH is available from Seattle Children’s at www. tinyurl.com/73dvpzd.

Evelyn Alberta King passed into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at her home on June 7, 2012, succumbing to COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). She was taken care of by her loving husband and daughter Trish when her condition worsened in the past few weeks. Evelyn was born Evelyn Alberta Openit Stevens in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on September 9, 1931. Evelyn married Homer Sexton after high school, and they had three children: Gary Sexton, deceased; Susan Johnson of Chino Valley, Arizona; and Trish Sexton of University Place, Washington. Evelyn’s grandchildren include Jeff Schuh, CPO Jason Schuh (U.S. Navy), Breezi Rumsey, Joshua Sexton, and several great-grandchildren. Evelyn worked for several years as a clerk for Thrifty drug store and then for Fricks drug store in Sequim. Evelyn’s husband, Homer, died of lung cancer in 1988.

Elsa Katherine (Cabana) McBride: born in Brattleboro, Vermont, on September 19, 1936, to Ralph J. and Alma (Vladish) Cabana. After graduating from Greenfield (Massachusetts) High School in 1955, she worked for Lunt Silversmiths until her marriage to George D. McBride on March 10, 1979, in Torrington, Connecticut, where they lived. She worked for the Hartford Courant newspaper in Hartford, Connecticut, until taking early retirement on a buyout on October 13, 1995. She spent the last eight years as senior secretary to the sports department. She and her husband retired to Sequim in October 1995, arriving 10 days after her last day of work at the Courant. She was a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, where she enjoyed working with her church family in various areas, especially in the kitchen. She was predeceased by her parents; grandparents Guy and Mabel Cabana; uncles Maynard Cabana and
Mrs. King until 1995, when they moved to Arizona. Evelyn contracted COPD and was given a short time to live unless she moved to a lower altitude with clean air. What better place than Sequim, so they moved back to Sequim in 2007. Whatever her state of health, Evelyn maintained a cheerful, positive attitude. Evelyn loved people and always thought the best of others. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She will be sorely missed by all who loved her.

pact Monday. Transportation is widening that part of the highway from two lanes to four to increase safety and decrease traffic congestion. Project Engineer Steve Fuchs said advertising for the project will begin in September, with construction starting in December. The widening work will conflict with the present location of the water mains. “When our water main is in the way, something has got to give,” said Mike Kitz, water and wastewater systems superintendent for the PUD. Kitz said the current water mains will be abandoned and removed, and new mains will be installed in different places along
the highway. About 1,250 feet worth of water mains will be replaced. Five gate valves to control water flow also will be installed, as well as a conduit under the highway so that water can be supplied to any future development projects south of the highway.
$90 million project Overall, the highway widening project is 3.5 miles long will cost around $90 million. The revamped section of the highway will have four lanes connecting Port Angeles and Sequim, with two lanes in each direction as well as a wide median.

Solution to Puzzle on B5
PENINSULA DAILY NEWS for Thursday, June 14, 2012 PAGE
Which side is really the extremist? DON’T YOU FIND it odd that the word extremism seems to apply only to conservative Republicans? Terminology often drives Cal political disThomas course, and those who control the terms often determine the outcome. Establishment Republicans have too often been uncomfortable in their own skin. When they win elections, they sometimes seem unsure of what to do next. Democrats never seem to have this problem. They operate according to their core convictions and are never considered extreme. Instead, they are moderate, even normal. When Republicans stick to their convictions, they are branded with a scarlet “E.” Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush
raised the extremist issue Monday in New York at a breakfast for reporters sponsored by Bloomberg View. As reported by Jim Rutenberg in The New York Times, Bush said Ronald Reagan and Bush’s father, the former president, would have a “hard time” fitting in with a GOP led by the tea party movement. Bush said George H.W. Bush and Reagan would struggle with “an orthodoxy that doesn’t allow for disagreement.” Bush’s father agreed with Democrats on raising taxes, breaking his pledge not to, and was defeated for re-election. Is this the path Jeb Bush recommends for Republicans — agree with Democrats and lose elections? Why does this approach appear to apply only to Republicans and not Democrats? Congressional Democrats recently had an opportunity to prove their moderation by voting in favor of a bill that would have outlawed sex-selection abortions. Most Democrats (and a few
Republicans) refused to vote for the measure. President Barack Obama favors a legal right to abortion. As a member of the Illinois Legislature, Obama refused to support the “Born-alive Infants Protection Act,” which extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed induced abortion, even if the child could not survive. He saw the bill as a roundabout attack on a woman’s abortion rights and voted against it. Extremism? Can anyone name a top aide to President Obama who is prolife or who favors less spending, smaller government and lower taxes? Where are the “moderates” in his administration? In Maine, former Republican Gov. Angus King is running for the U.S. Senate. A Washington Post story headlined: “Angus King makes a last stand for moderation in Maine Senate race.” The story quotes King: “My desire is to be as independent as I can be, as long as I can be, subject to being effective.”
Peninsula Voices U.S. and Christianity Those disavowing the U.S. being a historically Christian nation and who call it a “fable” (“Christian Nation II,” Peninsula Voices, June 8) apparently don’t understand American political history, and miss important tenets of Christian principles and belief. Work your way through the DVD series “The Truth Project” (www.thetruth project.org) for verifiable facts and answers. This 12-part curriculum provides excellent insight and references refuting the writer’s simplistic, misinformed opinion. For example, unlike what’s being taught to grade-school children, many early immigrants, who were our founding fathers, predecessors or ancestors, came to America
as evangelists, not refugees. To taste how Christianity factors into the guiding moral and political core of our nation, one must also examine underlying writings, letters, teachings, and social contracts which are the foundation of the documents the writer waves. You can glimpse how Christianity and American political life were interwoven in our formative years through early books like Democracy in America by [Alexis] de Tocqueville. As for espousing that God is invoked but Christ is not mentioned completely misses the single most important element of Christianity; belief in the Trinity. This fundamental principle guides the whole family of Christian religious belief worldwide. To understand the con-
What does “effective” mean? If Democrats want to raise taxes and spending, would King go along just to maintain his “moderate” and “effective” image? Does “getting things done” mean not caring what things are done? The tea party exists because its members are weary of the games played by Washington politicians. When tea-partiers vote for Republicans, they don’t expect them to go to Washington and cut deals that allow the liberal agenda to advance. They want to see real reform, including a reversal of the cultural decline that offends their beliefs. Why aren’t liberals who are attacking the economic and moral foundations of the country the real extremists? In his breakfast meeting with reporters, Jeb Bush mentioned the need for immigration reform and a change in tone about how illegal immigrants are dealt with. He is right, but that doesn’t make people who want to control our borders and enforce our laws
extremists. It isn’t either/or, it’s both — but a nation that cannot or will not control its borders will not continue to be the nation it has been or the one most people love and want to preserve. Is that extreme, or are the real extremists people who favor open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens? Many Republicans, it seems, would sooner be called anything but an extremist. Too many of them abandon their convictions at the sound of the word, eagerly desiring the approval of the liberal establishment. Such people are only making a stopover on the way to a destination called liberal extremism.

cept of God, Christ and the Holy Spirit being one, begin by learning the origins and principles of the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds. The real fable here is how humanists, secularists, and misinformed believers corrupt our true history while Christians are engaged in a Rip Van Winkle slumber about the impact of their faith. Larry W. Williams, Omak Williams is a former member of the Port Angeles City Council.
From the beginning In response to “Christian Nation II,” which said Christians have no claim on America’s moral or political core — nor should they. Excuse me? America is and has been
a Christian nation from the beginning. The writer states that the founding fathers invoked God in the Holy Trinity. God and Christ and the Holy Spirit are all the
same, and the use of one of these in vocabulary or any other way is referring to the one and only God. This is the basis of the Christian faith, from the beginning. The founding fathers
were Christians. If not, they would have mentioned or written about Buddha or Zeus or some other great whoever. Separation of church and state has been debated and misused by nonbelieving American people as an excuse for their moral decay and lack of being held responsible. The true intent, like it or not, of separation of church and state was that England, by law was promoting a state-run church. Wanting religious freedom, the founding fathers made sure by law that a state-run church would not happen in America. Even with that, we are still a Christian nation, like it or not. Every time I vote politically, I vote my Christian beliefs. Thom VanGesen, Port Angeles
Right to vote apparently never secure AS THE ELECTION season heats up, an increasing number of states are working to limit the number of people who are allowed to vote. Already we have a shameAmy fully low perGoodman centage of those eligible to vote actually participating. Florida, a key swing state, is preparing for the Republican National Convention, five days of pomp promoted as a celebration of democracy. While throwing this party, Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott, along with his secretary of state, Ken Detzner, are systematically throwing people off the voter rolls, based on flawed, outdated Florida state databases. Many eligible Florida voters recently received a letter saying they were removed and had limited time to prove their citizenship. Hundreds of cases emerged where people with longstanding
U.S. citizenship were being purged. According to the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, “of those singled out to prove their citizenship, 61 percent are Hispanic when only 14 percent of registered Florida voters are Hispanic,” suggesting an attempt to purge Latinos, who tend to vote Democratic. Recall the year 2000, when then-Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris systematically purged African-Americans from voter rolls. The U.S. Justice Department has ordered Detzner to stop the purge, but he and Gov. Scott promise to continue. The Justice Department has sued the state in federal court, as have the ACLU and other groups. For Georgia Congressman John Lewis, efforts to limit access to vote are not just bureaucratic. “It is unreal, it is unbelievable, that at this time in our history, 40 years after the Voting Rights Act was signed and passed into law, that we’re trying to go backward,” Lewis said. “I think there is a systematic, deliberate attack on the part of so many of these states, not just Florida, but it’s all across the

country. . . . “Some people were beaten, shot and murdered trying to help people become registered voters — I can never forget the three civil-rights workers that were murdered in the state of Mississippi on the night of June 21, 1964,” Lewis continued, recalling the murder of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, killed while registering African-Americans to vote. Back in 1961, Lewis, just 21 years old, was a leader of the Freedom Rides, testing new federal laws banning segregation in interstate travel. He and many others were severely beaten when their buses crossed state lines into the Deep South. He sat down at segregated lunch counters, and joined the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, soon rising to chair the organization. He told me about a pivotal moment in his life, and this nation’s history, the march over the Edmund Pettus Bridge: “On March 7, 1965, a group of us tried to march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, to dramatize to the nation that people wanted to vote.
“One young African-American man had been shot and killed a few days earlier, in an adjoining county, called Perry County. “Because of what happened to him we made a decision to march. “In Selma, Alabama, in 1965, only 2.1 percent of blacks of voting age were registered to vote. The only place you could attempt to register was to go down to the courthouse, you had to pass a so-called literacy test.” As Lewis and scores of others tried to cross the Pettus Bridge in Selma, at the beginning of their 50-mile march to Montgomery, Lewis recalled, “we got to the top of the bridge, we saw a sea of blue, Alabama state troopers, and we continued to walk, we came within hearing distance of the state troopers. “One said, ‘I’m Major John Cloud of the Alabama State Troopers, this is an unlawful march, it will not be allowed to continue, I give you three minutes to disperse, return to your church.’ . . . “You saw these guys putting on their gas masks, they came toward us beating us with nightsticks and bullwhips and trampling us with horses.
“I was hit in the head by a state trooper with a nightstick. “I had a concussion at the bridge. “My legs went out from under me. I felt like I was going to die. I thought I saw death.” When I asked Lewis what propelled him forward in the face of such violence, he said: “My mother, my father, my grandparents, my uncle and aunts, people all around me had never registered to vote.” Universal suffrage, the right to vote, is never safe, never secure, never complete. This election season will be one where money from a few will have enormous influence, while the votes of many are being eliminated, their voices effectively silenced. Unless people fight to dramatically expand voter participation, not just prevent the purges, our democracy is in serious danger.

Ocean salmon season on tap THE OCEAN SALMON season opens Saturday in parts of the North Olympic Peninsula. But the openings are fairly Lee unceremonious because Marine Horton Area 3 and Marine Area 4 aren’t the hottest spots to nab saltwater salmon. “The Strait areas get a lot more,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said, listing Port Angeles, Sekiu and Neah Bay as better spots than nearby LaPush. Gooding added that the Pacific Ocean is too unpredictable and dangerous for many anglers. “[Along the Strait of Juan de Fuca], you can take a 14-foot boat out and putt around,” Gooding said. “Not many people want to do that on the big pond.” The Strait doesn’t open for ocean salmon fishing until Sunday, July 1. That is the same day of crabbing, too. TURN
He’s the ‘Turbinator’ Seahawks’ RB Turbin impressive MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
RENTON — Interviews with 22-year-old athletes don’t ordinarily produce profound messages or perspectives on life and its meaning. But we might come to expect the extraordinary from Robert Turbin. The Seattle Seahawks’ rookie running back is a marvel of mass and velocity, with a quick burst to the line and biceps stolen from an animated action hero. He’s winning fans already with his play. After an impressive breakaway during Tuesday’s minicamp, teammates started yelling their approval: “The Turbinator,” they called him. Regardless how this team progresses this season, Robert Turbin deserves that kind of support. In a conversation after the Hawks drafted him in the fourth round out of Utah State, he sketched in some of his life’s details.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Seattle Seahawks running back Robert Turbin is impressing coaches at camp.
Family tragedies When he was 5, an older sister, afflicted with multiple sclerosis, died. And last February, his older brother Lonnie, who was dealing with drug addiction, was shot
and killed in Oakland. An ex-convict named Debonair Dobbz has been charged with the murder. And for much of the time in between those traumatic events, Robert Turbin helped serve as caregiver for his sister Tiffany, 11 years his elder, who has severe cerebral palsy. “I started taking care of her on my own when I was 8 years old – I was in third grade,” Turbin said after the draft. “She’s in a wheelchair; the only thing she can move is her head. “My role was to feed her when

like me, are committed to operating the arena and NBA franchise in a way that represents and upholds the values of our community,” Hansen wrote. TURN
Responsible adult Turbin said these are “lessons in life” that have caused him to become a responsible man. “A lot of guys my age may be immature and trying to find their way, trying to find out who they are,” he said. “I think the things I’ve gone
through have helped me get where I am.” So, there were never any questions such as, “Why me?” “No,” he said. “I don’t want to get all biblical on you, but one thing I learned in church is that God will never put too much on you that you can’t handle.” His focus at the moment is to learn the game as an understudy to Seahawks star back Marshawn Lynch, whose tough running style is a template for Turbin to emulate.

SEATTLE — The effort to build a new arena in Seattle with the hopes of seeing the NBA return has added a big name: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Ballmer will be part of the investment group for both the arena and the acquisition of an NBA franchise, according to a letter sent Wednesday by hedgefund manager and investment group leader Chris Hansen to King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn. “While it was my intention to wait until the local investor group was fully assembled before making any announcement, given the intense community interest and requests from the city and county councils, three members of my investment group have agreed to come forward at this time,” Hansen wrote in the letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press. That Ballmer is part of the investment group is not a surprise. Ballmer is a longtime basketball fan who regularly sat courtside at SuperSonics games before their departure to Oklahoma City in 2008 and was part of a group that made a last-ditch effort to try to keep the team in Seattle. At that time, Ballmer teamed with a handful of other Seattle businessmen to offer a renovation of KeyArena. Now Ballmer is throwing his support, and dollars, behind Hansen’s proposal for a $490 million arena to be built in the city’s SoDo neighborhood to house an NBA franchise and which could possibly bring the NHL to Seattle. Through a spokesman, Ballmer declined to comment on Wednesday’s announcement. Also part of the investment group will be Erik and Peter Nordstrom, members
of a prominent Seattle family that owned the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks from 1976-1988. Erik and Peter Nordstrom will invest in both the arena and a franchise. “These three gentlemen,

Youth Sports Labor Council earns berth in title game PORT ANGELES — Olympic Labor Council and Boulevard Natural Wellness Center battled the elements and each other in the second round of the North Olympic 12U Softball playoffs Tuesday at Volunteer Field. Boulevard has been OLC’s nemesis for the past several seasons with Boulevard winning close contests each time the teams have played, but Tuesday OLC finally came out ahead, 10-9. The game began in a steady drizzle, which proved fitful for both OLC’s Lauren Lunt and Boulevard’s Callie Hall. With softballs being traded out after nearly every pitch, both pitchers battled with Boulevard taking a 6-5 lead into the fourth inning. Tiring, wet arms required both teams to trade out pitchers, and OLC’s Kennedy Cameron and Boulevard’s Hope O’Connor continued the battle. Sierra Robinson, who led off the game with a triple and later hit a home run, and Isabelle Cottam, going 3 for 3 with two triples, provided a majority of the
offense for OLC. Also getting hits for OLC were Mikayla Ramey, Jasmine Cottam, Lunt, Cameron and Halaina Ferguson, who hit a clutch leadoff single in the top of the sixth. Boulevard’s offensive power came from Brennan Gray, who hit a home run for two runs batted in, and reached on walks three times to score four runs total. Hall and Mollie Stringer each had hits and scored twice as well for Boulevard. Throughout the game there were seven lead changes, but in the end Olympic Labor’s four runs in the top of the sixth proved too much. Although Boulevard put up a tough fight, the team could get back only two runs, ending with a one-run victory for OLC. Olympic Labor Council now moves on to play Port Angeles Power, the defending league champion, in the league championship game today at Lincoln Park starting at 6 p.m.
Broncos nip Wolves
Tuesday night. The game was an amazing pitching duel between Cole Williams of the Sequim Wolves and Gavin Velarde of the Sequim Broncos. The battle between the two top teams came right down to the last inning when the Broncos scored the winning run on an error as Velarde raced all the way home from first base after reaching first on a fielder’s choice. Both throwers pitched their hearts out with Williams giving up only three hits while striking out six and walking none. Velarde, meanwhile, gave up only two infield hits while striking out seven, and he never allowed the ball to be hit out of the infield during the six-inning contest. Silas Thomas came into the game in relief in the bottom of the last inning to secure the win for the Broncos. After the Wolves promptly put the go-ahead and winning run into scoring position, Thomas struck out the last batter to preserve the win.

Tueday’s 16U North Olympic League softball action. Dove Lucas pitched six solid innings for the win. ILWU’s offense featured a balanced attack with 10 players reaching base safely, led by Ralena Blackcrow with two hits and scoring three times. Natica Wood batted in two runs and Emily Copeland hit a long double for ILWU. In the fourth inning, Sarah Steinman hit a two-out, basesclearing triple to bat in two runs. Steinman later scored on an error to pull ILWU ahead 8-3. For Diamond Roofing, Ciara Gentry pitched well in relief to keep the game close, and Diamond’s offense kept the pressure on with 12 hits, led by Maddy Hinrichs, Alyssa Wetzler, Paige Reed and Brandy Keohokalole with two hits each.
Labor Council wins PORT ANGELES — Olympic Labor Council won its final game of the 12U North Olympic Softball regular season when it beat Tranco Transmissions 9-6 on Friday night. Both teams began the game with tough pitching behind Kennedy Cameron for OLC and Kylee Reid for Tranco. Olympic Labor scored first with Sierra Robinson earning a
walk and eventually stealing home. OLC then broke the game open in the second behind a Lauren Lunt grand slam home run to go up 5-1. Lunt was 2 for 3 with two runs scored and four runs batted in. Also hitting well for OLC were Gillian Elofson, who went 2 for 2 with a run, and Cassidy Weideman, who got her first hit of the season and drove in two. Hitting for Tranco were Reid, Jewel Gilbert, Madelyn Roenig and Kyrsten McGuffey. McGuffey also played well behind the plate. Tranco battled back in the third and fourth innings, scoring five runs. But the four runs put on the board in the top of the fourth proved too much, and gave OLC the 9-6 victory. The game ended with a basesloaded drive to right center by Tranco’s Saige Hefton that was caught by Jasmine Cottam to preserve the win and earning OLC its first playoff appearance in more than four years. The momentum pushed Olympic Labor Council to loser-out wins Monday and Tuesday and earn the team in the league championship game tonight. Peninsula Daily News

Return to eventâ€™s roots THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO â€” All it takes is one slight miss for this U.S. Open to get a whole lot harder. Tiger Woods pushed his tee shot on the 670-yard 16th hole at Olympic Club just enough to find the right rough, which was moist from the marine layer that covered the course Wednesday morning. The ball at least was sitting up, allowing him to take a cut with his 4-iron to get it back in play. Itâ€™s rare when Woods cannot reach a par 5 in two shots. But having to smash a 3-wood from 256 yards for his third shot? In the days leading up to the U.S. Open, the biggest
U.S. Open debate was whether the toughest stretch at Olympic was the opening six holes, or all 18 of them. About the only consensus was there wonâ€™t be a repeat of the score Rory McIlroy posted last year at Congressional â€” a recordshattering 16-under 268. The 2012 U.S. Open starts today at Olympic on ESPN at 9 a.m. Jack Nicklaus, an expert on the U.S. Open from having won four of them, was asked to name the toughest and easiest courses he has played in this championship. He finally settled on Pebble Beach in 1972, when
the wind blew so hard that Nicklaus won by three shots at 2-over 290 and never broke 70. As for the easiest? As Nicklaus thought back to the 44 times he had played, USGA executive director Mike Davis playfully interrupted. â€œYou didnâ€™t play last year, did you?â€? he said to Nicklaus. No one disputes the U.S. Open fulfilled its mission last year by identifying the best player in McIlroy. It just looked more like the Greater Hartford Open at times. In a relentless assault on a course softened by rain, McIlroy needed only 26 holes to reach double figures under par and he
never let up until he had his name in the record book and an eight-shot win. â€œWe want this event to be a real challenge,â€? Davis said. â€œI think looking back, we identified the best player last year. â€œHeâ€™s been a wonderful champion. But at the same time, I wouldnâ€™t want to go through every year where we have four days of wet, soft conditions because it doesnâ€™t really embellish on what weâ€™re trying to do in terms of identifying a national champion.â€? That sounds like a polite way of the USGA saying that itâ€™s time for payback, just like in 1974 after Johnny Miller shot 63 to win at Oakmont.

Seattle placed outfielder Mike Carp and reliever Stephen Pryor on the 15-day disabled list, optioned pitcher Blake Beavan and infielder Alex Liddi to Triple-A Tacoma. To fill the open roster spots, the Mariners activated outfielder Franklin Gutierrez and called up three others from the minors. The moves were made prior to Wednesdayâ€™s game against the San Diego Padres. Gutierrez was activated from the 15-day DL after missing all of the 2012 season so far with chest and foot injuries. Seattle also recalled pitcher Erasmo Ramirez, outfielder Casper Wells and pitcher Steve Delabar from Tacoma. Carp was placed on the disabled list with an inflamed right shoulder he first injured in the season opener in Japan in March. Pryor has a left-groin
strain. Gutierrez, Wells and Delabar will be in uniform and available immediately. Ramirez will make the start in the series finale with the Padres today.
Soundersâ€™ Estrada out TUKWILA â€” The Seattle Sounders will be without forward David Estrada for the next eight to 12 weeks after he broke his left foot in training. Estradaâ€™s injury was announced by the team on Wednesday. He was injured in practice on Tuesday, walking off early with an ice bag wrapped around his foot. Estrada has proven to be one of Seattleâ€™s biggest surprises early in the MLS season. He leads Seattle with five goals in MLS play and has started 12 of 13 league matches, playing up front as a striker and also in the midfield. Estrada is third on the team in minutes played. He is scheduled to have surgery on his foot Thursday.
