Old wagon wheel lands finder $225 fine PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK â€” An area resident has been fined for collecting a wagon wheel thought to be about a century old after finding it in the newly exposed Lake Aldwell lake bed.
The person was fined $225 after an Olympic National Park ranger found the wagon wheel listed on the Internet trading site Craigslist and purchased it, said park spokeswoman Rainey McKenna on Friday. The park did not release the

name of the person who was fined. â€œWeâ€™re not putting out that information to protect the privacy of the person,â€? McKenna said. The seller was issued a citation June 15. McKenna did not know as of Friday if the fine
had been paid. The wagon wheel is now in the custody of the parkâ€™s cultural resources division, McKenna said, and is in storage in Port Angeles. After the wheel was sold on the Internet, the Clallam
County commissioners agreed in June to allow the park to place a gate on Lake Aldwell Road, a county road that provides access to the southwest edge of the former Lake Aldwell. TURN

Toxin fears spread to Quilcene, Dabob areas

QUILCENE â€” A biotoxin that causes flu-like symptoms has prompted the closure of Quilcene, Dabob and Discovery bays to recreational shellfish harvesting. The recent discovery was the first time any toxin has been found in shellfish in either Quilcene Bay or Dabob Bay. The toxin, called diarrhetic shellfish poisoning, or DSP, closed Sequim Bay last year after three King County residents who ate mussels they harvested there fell ill in late June. DSP can causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps and chills. The symptoms typically pass quickly. â€œIt [Sequim Bay] is the first site that we had a confirmed illness for DSP in the United States,â€? said Greg Combs of the state Department of Health Office of Shellfish and Water Protection. â€œItâ€™s difficult to say whether or not it was toxic in other areas.â€? Commercially harvested shellfish are sampled separately, and products on the market should be safe to eat, the Jefferson County Health Department said. TURN
Candidate Youra sues to challenge rivalâ€™s residency
Port Angeles native Tommy Ruddell is shown in his frontier role as Jacob for â€œThe Olympians: The Series.â€?
eep in the woods by the Sol Duc River, a young man who appeared to be Native American climbed over logs, avoided berry bushes and stepped around bear scat. He stopped at a log to catch his breath, scanned the woods around him, then moved on. â€œCut,â€? said Ryan Herring, director of â€œThe Olympians: The Series,â€? a North Olympic Peninsula adventure television show he plans to pitch to the networks. â€œYou are one-shot wonders,â€? he said Friday after reviewing the scene on a portable monitor. Herring, along with a skeleton film crew of about 15, were finishing the last few scenes for the series pilot, called â€œShanghaied,â€? on a 96-acre private plot of secondgrowth forest near the Sol Duc River. Herringâ€™s creation, what he envisions as an epic historical drama, focuses on a young frontiersman, Jacob, played by Tommy Ruddell, a Los Angeles actor with Port Angeles roots. It also has used many people in the area as extras and assistants. Principal filming for the episode wraps up today, with a bar fight and kidnapping scene planned in a made-over Bar N9ne in Port Angeles. Other locations have included Lincoln Parkâ€™s log cabins, which were transformed by filmmakers into an early 1800s woodlands community. TURN

Justin Bieber cited for fast speed in L.A. JUSTIN BIEBER IS used to attracting crowds. But he had at least one follower too many when somebody tailed him on a Los Angeles freeway, and it led to a speeding ticket for the teen idol. The singer of “Boyfriend” and “Baby” was cited for driving in excess of 65 mph at about 10:45 Bieber a.m. Friday, after calls came in complaining of a freeway chase on southbound U.S. Highway 101 near Studio City, said Officer Ming Hsu of the California Highway Patrol. The 18-year-old crooner told officers he was being chased by paparazzi, and investigators confirmed he was being followed by at least one vehicle, Hsu said. “The second vehicle left
the area, and there’s a search to find that driver,” Hsu said. Hsu did not have a description of the other vehicle. A call and an email to Bieber’s publicist weren’t immediately returned. The claim of a chase is backed by an unlikely eyewitness, Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine, who called authorities after seeing Bieber’s distinctive chrome Fisker Karma being chased by five or six other cars. On his morning commute to City Hall, Zine, who spent 33 years as a police officer, said he saw Bieber’s sports car drive up behind him and zoom around him, weaving wildly in and out of traffic while five or six other cars gave chase. Zine estimated the chase exceeded 100 mph as paparazzi engaged in wild maneuvers to keep up with Bieber, including driving on the shoulder and cutting off other vehicles. Zine said Bieber was breaking the law by driving recklessly and speeding, and the paparazzi were breaking the law by hounding him.
“This was very bizarre, very outrageous and showed a total disregard for life and property,” Zine said.

JOSEPH KIRSNER, 102, a pioneer in the field of digestive system disorders, died from kidney failure at his home in Chicago on Saturday. University of Chicago Medical Center spokesman John Easton said the wellknown physician published more than 750 research papers and 18 books, and was the Louis Block Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine at the university. Dr. Kirsner was among the first to show the increased risk of colon cancer in patients with ulcerative colitis. He broke new ground in the understanding and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. “Few if any physicians have had a broader and more positive impact than Joe Kirsner on thousands of patients, students and professional colleagues,” Dr. Kenneth Polonsky of the university said in a statement. “His legacy at the University of Chicago will persist for generations. We are truly fortunate to have been able to call Joe a friend and colleague and a member of our faculty.” A Boston native, Dr.
Kirsner arrived at the university in 1935 and helped change his field from an art — in his words, “speculative, impressionistic, anecdotal, almost mystical at times” — into a science. He helped found the American Gastroenterological Association, the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation gave him their lifetime achievement award two times, in 1991 and 2002. His respected textbook Inflammatory Bowel Disease was published in six editions.

A3 Briefly: Nation Heat keeps baking Midwest, parts of East PHILADELPHIA — Americans dipped into the water, went to the movies and rode the subway just to be in air conditioning Saturday for relief from unrelenting heat that has killed 30 people across half the country. A major storm in the area 1½ weeks ago left behind damage, which combined with the high demand for power to stress the electrical system’s capabilities, a Washington, D.C.-area utility said. Hundreds of thousands remained without power Friday night in the Appalachians and mid-Atlantic, mostly in West Virginia. Tens of thousands were still without power in the Midwest as well after storms there last week. Utilities hoped to restore service over the weekend in Michigan, where temperatures were forecast in the 90s.
Weather aids fire fight SAN FRANCISCO — Firefighters around the West were taking advantage of improving weather conditions to make strides against stubborn wildfires — even containment in some locales — that have destroyed homes, forced evacuations and scorched hundreds of thousands of acres of timber and brush. In Colorado, fire officials declared the state’s most
destructive wildfire 98 percent contained Friday night. Colorado Springs officials lifted evacuation orders for 126 more homes at a 28-square-mile fire that started late last month and has damaged or destroyed nearly 350 homes and killed two people. In Wyoming and Montana, a lull in hot weather, damp conditions and shifting winds helped thousands of firefighters at separate blazes. In Redding, Calif., 1,000 firefighters spent the day battling a growing blaze that threatened dozens of homes amid tinderdry conditions. It erupted into a 2-square-mile fire less than a day after it was spotted.

IRS will police your health care obedience Penalties, withheld refunds debut during 2014 tax year BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold most of President Barack Obama’s health care law will come home to roost for most taxpayers in about 2½ years, when they’ll have to start providing proof on their tax returns that they have health insurance. That scenario puts the Internal Revenue Service at the center of the debate, renewing questions about whether the agency is capable of policing the health care decisions of millions of people in the United States while also collecting the taxes needed to run the federal government. Under the law, the IRS will provide tax breaks and incentives to help pay for health insurance and impose penalties on some people who don’t buy coverage and on some businesses that don’t offer it to employees. The changes will require new regulations, forms and publications, new computer programs and a big new outreach program to explain it all to taxpayers and tax professionals. Businesses that don’t claim an exemption will have to prove they offer health insurance to employees.
Big tax law changes The health care law “includes the largest set of tax law changes in more than 20 years,” according to the Treasury inspector general who oversees the IRS. The agency will have to hire thousands of workers to manage it, requiring significant budget
increases that already are being targeted by congressional Republicans determined to dismantle the president’s signature initiative. “Knowing the complexity of the health law, there’s no question that the IRS is going to struggle with this,” said Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., R-La., chairman of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. “The IRS wants more resources. Well, we need to start digging down into what are they doing with the resources and personnel.” Treasury spokeswoman Sabrina Siddiqui said, “The overwhelming majority of funds used by the agency to implement the Affordable Care Act go to administer the premium tax credits, which will be a tax cut averaging about $4,000 for more than 20 million middle-class people and families.” The Supreme Court, in its 5-4 ruling, upheld the mandate that most Americans get health insurance. The majority said Congress has the power to enforce the mandate under its taxing authority. The decision labeled the penalties a tax, noting that they will be collected by the IRS. Those who don’t get qualified
health insurance will be required to pay the penalty — or tax — starting for the 2014 tax year, unless they are exempt because of low income, religious beliefs, or because they are members of Native American tribes. The penalty will be fully phased in by 2016, when it will be $695 for each uninsured adult or 2.5 percent of family income, whichever is greater, up to $12,500. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that 4 million people will pay the penalty that year. The law, however, severely limits the ability of the IRS to collect the penalties.
No civil, criminal penalties There are no civil or criminal penalties for refusing to pay it and the IRS cannot seize bank accounts or dock wages to collect it. No interest accumulates for unpaid penalties. So how can the IRS enforce the mandate? Scary letters and threats to withhold tax refunds. The law allows the IRS to withhold tax refunds to collect the penalty, and most filers get refunds. This year, 77 percent of the 135 million individual income tax returns processed by the IRS qualified for a refund. The average refund: $2,707. For those who don’t qualify for a refund, a stern letter from the IRS can be effective, even if it doesn’t come with the threat of civil or criminal penalties, said Elizabeth Maresca, a former IRS trial attorney who supervises the Tax & Consumer Litigation Clinic at the Fordham University law school. “Most people pay because they’re scared, and I don’t think that’s going to change,” Maresca said.
The bulls also rise: 6 injured in event popularized by Hemingway THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PAMPLONA, Spain — One elderly thrillseeker was gored in a leg and five others slightly injured as thousands of adrenalinefueled runners raced ahead of six fighting bulls in the streets of Pamplona in the first running of the bulls of this year’s San Fermin festival, officials said Saturday. Runners, in traditional white clothing and red kerchiefs around their necks, tripped over each other or fell in the mad daredevil annual rush along early morning dew-moistened slippery streets to the bull ring of the northern Spanish city. The San Fermin running of the bulls festival became world-famous with the publication of Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises. It is also known around the world for its wild all-night street parties that commemorate the city’s patron saint. One youth got the top of his shirt and kerchief caught on a bull’s horn, inches from his face, and was dragged several yards along the ground, but was seen to get up and run away.

New arts center exec looks forward BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Robin Anderson hopes to make a good thing better as the next executive director of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. Anderson, who has verbally accepted the position and is expected to ink a formal agreement in Port Angeles this week, Anderson knows she has big shoes to fill in replacing recently retired Executive Director Jake Seniuk. Associate Director Barbara Slavik is retiring at the end of this year. â€œJake and Barbara have done an amazing job,â€? said Anderson when reached by cellphone from Newberg, Ore. Anderson said the fine arts center is â€œalready well-established.â€? She hopes to build on Slavikâ€™s successes and foster partnerships with the business community and other arts centers in the Puget Sound region. When she arrives in Port Angeles early this week, Anderson said she will â€œtalk to everyone I possibly can and learn as much as possible.â€? â€œThe centerâ€™s been there,â€? she added. â€œItâ€™s a time for me to listen and gather information and bring that all together and share that with the board to come up with a vision we can work for.â€? Anderson hopes to develop a 10-year vision for the arts center and update the business model for challenging economic times. â€œThe nature of nonprofits has really changed,â€? Anderson said. â€œBefore, there was a lot more expendable income. Itâ€™s really dried up.â€? It took a $50,000 anonymous donation for the city to hire a director this summer. The donation will cover Andersonâ€™s salary and benefits for the second half of the year. Interim City Manager Dan McKeen said the anonymous donation will go a long way in keeping the continuity of leadership at the 25-year-old arts center, which is sustained largely by donations and fundraising events, with a small portion from the city of Port Angeles.
series of outdoor workshops â€” as well as â€œArtPaths: Portfolio,â€? a major exhibition of work by Forks, Sequim and Port Angeles High School students. The director position was advertised earlier this year with an annual salary range of $54,257 to $64,850 plus benefits. McKeen on Saturday said Andersonâ€™s salary will be $62,941. Anderson has spent the past 25 years working in the arts, most recently as executive director of the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg, which she started up in 2009. The San Francisco Bay Area native said she is fulfilling a dream of working in the Puget Sound region. She described her new job as the â€œpinnacleâ€? of her career. â€œIâ€™ve always wanted to live up there,â€? Anderson said. As the new executive director, Anderson said she will develop new programs for the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and work to integrate the center into the community. â€œItâ€™s good to see how much support there is,â€? Anderson said. â€œI want to nurture those relationships and make them stronger.â€? Before moving to Oregon, Anderson worked as arts programming curator, senior supervisor for events and visual arts for heritage, culture and art at the Lakewood Cultural Center in Lakewood, Colo., near Denver. She was the curator for five art galleries, supervised the visual and performing arts outreach programs, and organized community events. After starting up the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg, which is housed in 40,000 square feet of a former elementary school, Anderson resigned in November. â€œItâ€™s in great shape now,â€? she said. Anderson earned degrees in fine arts and sculpture from the California College for the Arts. In her spare time, Anderson enjoys kayaking and bicycling. Anderson this week plans to meet with fine arts center board President Linda Crow, the other board members and city officials to go over the first steps and expectations. â€œWeâ€™re excited to bring her on board,â€? McKeen said. Anderson said she would be ready to start at the beginning of August at the latest. She said she is looking forward to becoming part of the community. â€œIâ€™m so excited to be moving to Port Angeles and getting to know everybody,â€? she said. Slavik will be recognized for his contributions to the arts center at the next Port Angeles City Council meeting July 17, McKeen said.
â€œShe has great ideas to build on what Jake has accomplished as director,â€? McKeen said of Anderson. â€œOne thing she wanted to do was take it further, getting kids involved in the fine arts center and getting more exposure throughout the community.â€? ________ Under Seniukâ€™s and Slavikâ€™s Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be leadership, the arts center has reached at 360-452-2345, ext. 5072, hosted art classes â€” such as or at rob.ollikainen@peninsuladaily this summerâ€™s â€œMondayâ€™s Childâ€? news.com.

Sequim eatery hosts wooden sculptures BY MARGARET MCKENZIE PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
SEQUIM â€” Sequim was the site of a black bear attack â€” wooden bears, that is. On Friday, the town was descended upon by a whole family of bears, some holding fishing rods and others kissing, while one sat in a canoe. Another held a sign welcoming people to the Black Bear Diner. With their whimsical, Pooh Bearlike faces, they are the work of chain-saw carver Ray Schulz of Northwoods Sculpture in Deer Park, near Spokane. His bears are specially commissioned for the exteriors and interiors of Black Bear Diners nationwide.
Opening Tuesday The diner in Sequim is having a soft opening Tuesday at 1471 E. Washington St., next door to the Holiday Inn Express. Although Black Bear Diners are a chain of restaurants based in Redding, Calif., this one is unique, said Holiday Inn Express owner Bret Wirta of Ballard as he sat in a booth with his laptop while activity whirled around him. The separate hotel and restaurant sites will share a pond and be
linked by a bridge â€” as well as electronically, so hotel guests can charge a meal with their room keys, and restaurant guests can reserve a room at dinner. The 125-seat restaurant and 77-room Holiday Inn Express will function independently or work together for the 250-seat conference center guests as needed, Wirta has said. â€œI see it as a three-legged stool,â€? said Wirta, who hails originally from Lake Sunapee, N.H., but who has lived on the North Olympic Peninsula for the past nine years. â€œWe think the return on a development like this will come back many times to the community,â€? he said, noting that his hotel is the first thing travelers see as they come to Sequim from the east. Not only that, but he added: â€œOur goal is to be the best Black Bear Diner out there.â€? For those unfamiliar with the Black Bear Diner chain, Wirta explained that itâ€™s a family-style restaurant on the same order as Cracker Barrel and Bob Evans. Founded in Mount Shasta, Calif., by Bob and Laurie Manley and Bruce Dean in 1995, it now has some 51 restaurants in eight states, including franchises in Olympia and Federal Way. Only a few are owned by the company; the rest, like Wirtaâ€™s, are franchised to local owners. Inside the Sequim restaurant â€” which will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner â€” are many Northwest decorative touches and, naturally, bear paraphernalia wher-
ever one looks. Wirta and his wife, Trisha, also own the Quality Inn and Suites on Sequimâ€™s west end at 134 River Road. While Wirta talked Friday, John Canda, general manager, trained wait staff while architect George Hanson of Seattle made final touches to the building, general contractor Larry Rodarte of Santa Maria, Calif., directed crew members, and Rusty Sage of Sage Landscaping & Design of Sequim mulched flower beds.
Getting set up Meanwhile, outside, Charlie Roberts, owner of Sequimâ€™s Admiralty Crane, was getting his ducks â€” er, his bears â€” in a row. With Bruce Goettling at the helm of a 38-ton crane â€” not his biggest, Roberts hastened to say, but one that still towered over the surrounding countryside â€” about a dozen bears, many holding carved fish, were soon unloaded from a semitruck parked by the restaurant. From there, â€œPapa Bear,â€? a 10-foot-tall sculpture that will welcome folks into the diner out front, was lifted into the air and placed in front of the restaurant. Overhead, a curious eagle circled. â€œHe must be wondering where those bears got all that salmon,â€? Roberts remarked with a grin.

‘Olympians’: Area talent is used in film project “The Olympians” is more fun than being a sailor in Her Majesty’s Navy in “Master and Commander.” “Pirates are pretty cool,” he said.
CONTINUED FROM A1 “The Olympians” is based on stories that emerged from the arrival of American settlers on the Olympic Peninsula, including shipwrecks, crimes and legends, Herring said. As soon as filming wraps up, post-production will begin, including weaving an original soundtrack into the scenes. The soundtrack is being created by area musicians at Dungeness Records in Sequim, Herring said. He expects the final product to be ready for viewing in October, with a public viewing and sales of DVDs or online digital downloads to help finance the next episode of the series and entry fees for film festivals. No firm dates are set at this time, he said. While the local public is being introduced to the product through showings and film festivals, Herring will be pitching his series to the networks. Herring brought in actors and film crews from the entire Pacific Northwest but also used local talent to make his project come to life.
Local talent in pilot Among them were several members of the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, who wore traditional cedar dress to help recreate the feel of the time and place, Herring said. Ruddell, who plays Jacob, had a minor role in the 2008 version of “Land of the Lost” and received several call backs for the role of Superman/Clark Kent in the latest incarnation of the comic book movie series. Ruddell, the brother of Port Angeles auto dealer Howie Ruddell, attended Port Angeles High School and Peninsula College, where he performed in several productions in the Little Theater. Most of the actors and crew members are from the Pacific Northwest, and many have connections in the Port Angeles area. Some, like David Baker of Chimacum, have Hollywood experience.

Students from the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center have been interning on the set to learn the art of movie-making. A group of 15 students from Port Angeles, Sequim, Joyce and Port Townsend are working as assistants on the set, working with actors’ makeup, on lighting, still photography and scene continuity, and working at the film’s “base camp,” where the crew retreated to eat and rest between scenes. After last year’s class experience with “Serenity Farm,” a thriller filmed in Port Townsend and Sequim, the class was popular — so popular that entry to the movie-making class became a competitive process, requiring teacher recommendations and interviews. “I had to turn people away,” said Lisa Hitt, an instructor at the skills center. On Friday, only nine of the 15 accompanied the crew, since most of the filming was done and only a few scenes remained. Matthew Roragen, 14, of Sequim had one of the more visible jobs: operating the “slate,” or “clapper,” to start each scene. Roragen was given a few lessons on how to notate each scene by First Assistant Director Allen Esparza, 38, of Tacoma, then had to find a way to get between the camera and the scene, sometimes half hidden inside bushes to keep the slate visible. Others were assigned to assist the makeup artist, which sometimes included tasks such as gathering both mud and dry soil to properly dirty the actors for the scene. Four of the students interning on “The Olympians” set also interned last year on “Serenity Farm,” Hitt said.

Shellfish: Quil, Dabob closed Wheel: Restore CONTINUED FROM A1 Frank Cox, marine biotoxin coordinator with the state Department of Health, said a mussel containing 32 micrograms of DSP toxin recently was found at a mussel-monitoring site for Quilcene and Dabob bays. “We close it when it hits 16,” Cox said. Other samples of shellfish taken from Quilcene and Dabob bays are being tested at a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration lab in Seattle and a Food and Drug Administration lab on Dauphin Island, Ala. The state Department of Health has purchased new lab equipment for DSP testing, but the equipment has not been calibrated. The results of the lab tests will be known later this week, perhaps Wednesday, Cox said. The cause of the latest DSP bloom is still unknown, but monitoring will continue. “We have not had any illnesses reported this year from anywhere,” Cox said.
he cause of the latest DSP bloom is still unknown, but monitoring will continue.
Sequim Bay is also closed now because of DSP. Food contaminated with DSP biotoxins may not look or smell spoiled. Marine biotoxins are not destroyed by cooking or freezing. The Jefferson County Public Health Department announced the closure of Discovery, Quilcene and Dabob bays Monday.
Other beaches Other beaches along the Strait of Juan de Fuca already were closed to recreational harvesting for elevated levels of potentially deadly paralytic shellfish poisoning, or PSP. Seasonal closures for shellfish harvesting are in effect for Pacific Ocean beaches. Kilisut Harbor, including Mystery Bay, is closed to butter clams only. Butter
clams hold toxins for a longer period of time than other shellfish. PSP, commonly known as “red tide,” is a neurotoxin that can trigger paralysis at high concentrations. Its prevalence tends to rise in the summer, Cox said. Closures for DSP or PSP include the recreational harvest of clams, including geoducks, oysters, mussels and other invertebrates. The closures do not apply to shrimp or crab. “We’ve had three PSP deaths in Washington over the years,” Cox said. “And we’ve had a number of close calls with PSP. I think a lot of people have learned to pay attention to our website.”
DSP from plankton DSP comes from a toxin produced by a type of plankton long known to live in high concentrations in Sequim Bay and around Puget Sound. Mussels tend to ingest higher amounts of DSP than other invertebrates. “Mussels are indiscrimi-

Canada has seen “a whole slug of illnesses” attributed to biotoxins this year. “In Europe, there have been outbreaks that involved hundreds of people,” Cox added. Health officials are still learning about DSP’s prevalence in the region. “We’ve got a lot more work,” Cox said. “That’s the bottom line.” The Health Department maintains a list of beaches affected by shellfish closures at ww4.doh.wa.gov/gis/ mogifs/biotoxin.htm.

The jail’s main transfer switch is in need of immediate repair, with an estimated delivery time of 45 to 60 days. County staff members said that in the event of a power failure, it will pose significant life and safety issues, so an emergency resolution is needed to effect immediate repairs. Items on the consent agenda include: ■ The cancellation of property taxes on a land parcel that were incorrectly collected. The error was because of a one-time system error, county staff said. ■ The allocation of up to $72,000 for government relations assistance pertaining to maintenance of the Upper Hoh Road. ■ Approving several advisory board appointments and resignations. ■ Issuing a notice of a hearing on a proposed ordinance repealing and replacing one concerning the Port Ludlow Drainage District Assessment System.

Sailboat overturns in PA Harbor; no one hurt PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — An unidentified sailor was not injured when a small rental sailboat overturned in Port Angeles Harbor, the Coast Guard said. The overturned sailboat was spotted by a nearby boater Friday afternoon, and the sailor was pulled from the water by the good Samaritan, said Chief Petty Officer
Robert Lanier, spokesman for the Coast Guard. A medium-size response boat from Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles towed the boat back to the pier and returned the sailor to shore, he said. The Coast Guard did not identify the sailor.
Review board upholds firing of city subagent Auditor hopes to reopen new licensing office BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS SEQUIM — A state dispute review board has upheld the termination of Sequim vehicle and vessel licensing subagent Karen Shewbert. Shewbert operated the Sequim Vehicle/Vessel Licensing office for 12 years before Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand terminated Shewbert’s contract and shut the office down in May. Shewbert appealed the termination to the state Department of Licensing, which formed a dispute review board that heard testimony during a two-day hearing at the Department of Transportation Maintenance Building conference room in Port Angeles last month. “It is the findings of the Review Board that the termination of the contract between Ms. Karen Shewbert and Clallam County Auditor be upheld,” Bill Cox, the chairman of the review board, wrote in an
email to both sides. At issue in Shewbert’s appeal was whether Rosand terminated her for cause. The county auditor said Shewbert breached her contract by not providing appropriate financial documents. “I was pleased that the outcome showed respect for the contract,” Rosand said of the state dispute review board’s decision. Rosand was notified of the decision via certified letter Monday. Attempts to reach Shewbert and her lawyer, Craig Miller, about the decision Friday were unsuccessful. Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Mark Nichols represented Rosand.
between her and Rosand. Now that the review board has made its decision, Rosand hopes to reopen the Sequim Vehicle/Vessel Licensing office in a new location. She said about a dozen people have contacted her to express interest in applying to be the new subagent, but she must get approval from the Department of Licensing before even beginning the search. Until she gets such approval, east Clallam County is without a licensing bureau in Sequim.
Where to go Customers can go to Port Angeles for license tabs at the Auditor’s Office on the first floor of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., or the Jefferson County auditor at 1820 Jefferson St. in Port Townsend. Licensing customers also have the option of mailing their renewal notices to the courthouse or visiting www. dol.wa.gov to purchase tabs using their debit or credit cards.
Rosand, who answers to the Department of Licensing, terminated Shewbert’s contract after constant disagreements regarding Shewbert’s accounting practices, including her refusal to use accounting software compatible with what the Auditor’s Office uses. ________ During the second day of Reporter Lee Horton can be the hearing, a teary Shew- reached at 360-452-2345, ext. bert expressed regret for 5152, or at lee.horton@peninsula the lack of communication dailynews.com.

Jefferson County Commissioner Dan Youra files a residency challenge against his opponent, Tim Thomas, with Superior Court Clerk Ruth Gordon on Friday. Thomas’ name cannot be removed from the printed ballots, which already have gone out to military voters, with the remainder mailed out July 18. Katie Blinn, assistant director of elections for the Washington Secretary of State’s Office, said there is no provision under the law to accommodate a ruling against Thomas in
Superior Court. “Election challenges are allowed on a very tight deadline, and the time for a challenge has already passed in this case,” she said. “What the challenger should have done is to file an immediate challenge in both Superior Court and with the auditor within three days after the
filing period.” If Thomas is defeated in the primary, the matter will become moot, Blinn said. If he prevails, then a challenge against him in the general election could be filed, she added. If Thomas is elected and the challenge stands, he could not be allowed to take office, Blinn said. Youra said he is looking

Diet plans to sink your teeth into RECENTLY, I WAS in the bookstore looking at diet books, thinking maybe it was time that I read one instead of going on a diet. I was astounded by W. Bruce the sheer num- Cameron ber and variety of the things and became energized by the promises of quick, painless weight loss because it gave me confidence that if I just worked at it, I could write my own diet book! A lot of the weight-loss plans seemed to include language like this: “The Low-Lard Diet, when combined with good nutrition and exercise, can result in significant weight reduction, plus we’ll have sold another Low-Lard Diet book!” A woman on the cover of the Low-Lard Diet Book sucks in her
stomach and stretches the waistband of her trousers 3 feet in front of her, smiling as if to say, “See how skinny I look in these clown pants?” I’m going to scientifically guess that just about any diet combined with “good nutrition and exercise” would help you lose weight, which is why I am qualified to write a fad diet book that will include the following plans: ■ The Marine Diet: This diet is guaranteed to reduce flab. For breakfast, eat some kind of marine life — crab omelets, lox and bagels, goldfish crackers. Then, for lunch, join the Marines. Within six weeks, you’ll be in amazing shape and able to shoot an automatic rifle. ■ The Toddler Diet: Have three children under the age of 6, and eat whatever you want every single day. You may not lose weight, but that won’t matter because your hair won’t be washed and your shirt will be covered in baby spit. ■ The Internet Diet: Sit at the computer and read any email

that offers you cut-rate prices on male “enhancement” drugs, a million dollars from Bill GatesOprah-Spider-Man or an extraordinary business opportunity from the minister of information of Nigeria that looks pretty realistic except that he can’t spell “minister” or “information.” Or “Nigeria.” Respond to every offer. You will find that after a few days of this, you will come to despise everything about the human race — including what it eats. ■ The Teenage-Son Exercise Plan: Give your teenage son the keys to your car for the weekend. Starting Monday, you’ll be walking to work. ■ The Teenage-Daughter Exercise Plan: When a boy comes to take your teenage daughter on a date, make sure you study his visible tattoos and quiz him on his plans for the future, of which he won’t have any. Remind your daughter that

Get up in the morning, look at the large pizza box in the trash and say, “Wow, I sure must have been hungry to have made that midnight call for the broccoli delivery boy!” Sit down with a bowl of popcorn, watch a golf match on television and tell yourself you watched the Boston Marathon, instead.

Peninsula Voices Trouble, trouble, trouble — we’ve got trouble right here on the North Olympic Peninsula. My reading of the Tuesday, July 3, Peninsula Daily News was a real eye-opener. The Port Angeles City Council is fighting the state of Washington, the Clallam County Board of Commissioners is fighting another state agency, and the environmentalists are fighting everything. The City Council wants the state’s Olympic Clean Air Agency to provide a second monitoring station for Nippon Paper Industries’ planned upgrade of its biomass cogeneration plant. (The burning of wood waste to produce electricity and heat.) To paraphrase the state’s response: No way. And the Clallam County commissioners are trying to influence the state Department of Ecology’s regulation of most of the rivers and streams. Of particular interest is

Police: Deadly mortar shouldnâ€™t have been sold THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
RICHLAND â€” Richland authorities say the mortar that killed a 61-year-old man should have never been sold to a member of the public. The Tri-City Herald reported that itâ€™s not known
where John S. Anderson bought the 3-inch-diameter mortar that malfunctioned and exploded near him when he went to check it. He died at the scene. Authorities said they have received tips on where
Anderson got the fireworks, but Richland police spokesman Sgt. Mike Harrison declined Friday to talk more about the investigation. They worry that others unaware of the strength of the devices could be injured
or killed. Chief deputy state fire marshal Dan Johnson said any fireworks mortar that is 2 inches in diameter or larger is professional grade and only can be sold to licensed pyrotechnists.

Bar poll ties two judge candidates BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES â€” Two of the four candidates vying for the Clallam County Superior Court judge position being vacated by Ken Williams tied right down to the hundredth percentage point atop a recent lawyersâ€™-preference survey of primary election candidates conducted by the county Bar Association. Rated from one to five on 10 different qualities and their scores averaged, county Hearing Examiner Chris Melly of Port Angeles and District Court 2 Judge Erik Rohrer of Forks each received average scores of 4.16, bar association President Simon Barnhart said this week. Port Angeles lawyer Curtis Johnson scored 3.47 and state Assistant Attorney General William Payne of Port Angeles 3.21. The surveys were mailed June 19 to the associationâ€™s 76 lawyers who are current on their dues, Barnhart said. Completed surveys were returned by the due date of June 29 by 47 lawyers, he said. â€œItâ€™s an honor to be recognized by my peers,â€? Rohrer, 54, said Thursday. â€œThese are people Iâ€™ve worked with for over 20 years. I think they are in a good position to know who is qualified and who is not qualified.â€? Melly, 60, did not return calls requesting comment Thursday and Saturday. Ballots will be mailed out July 18 for the Aug. 7
Advances in Lung Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment THOMAS KUMMET, MD, MPH, OLYMPIC MEDICAL CANCER CENTER Last week Clallam County lost another resident to what is still the number one cancer killer in America, cancer of the lung. Sometimes called the â€œinvisible cancerâ€? because it is often overshadowed in peopleâ€™s minds due to the publicity paid to breast and prostate cancer, lung cancer is responsible for more deaths than breast cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer combined. With less fanfare, research into EHWWHUZD\VWRĂ€QGGLagnose, and treat lung cancer continues. Cancer detection occurs either when patients report symptoms to their medical provider or when without symptoms screening tests are performed. Screening chest x-rays have been proven ineffective, but recently a study suggested that CAT scans RIWKHFKHVWFDQĂ€QG cancer earlier, and not just earlier but early enough to improve a personâ€™s chance at cure. Unfortunately &$7VFDQVDOVRĂ€QG many spots that are not cancer. Thus a current controversy centers around determining if patients are EHWWHURIIE\Ă€QGLQJD few cancers early as opposed to many lung
spots that are benign, but require more testing or invasive surgery to prove they are not cancer. People with heavy smoking histories such as over a pack a day for 30 years can discuss this question with their health care team. When it comes to diagnosing lung cancer, the biggest progress in obtaining tissue to prove the diagnosis is the capability to perform ultrasound images of the lung tissue through the bronchoscope. Bronchoscopy is performed by Olympic Medical Centerâ€™s lung specialists by insertLQJDWKLQĂ H[LEOHWXEH with camera visualization of the bronchial passageways. Now ultrasound images of the surrounding lung tissue can also be seen and biopsy needles directed into the abnormal areas, increasing the success of this procedure. All cancers need to be staged, which means a determination of how far the cancer has spread, before discussions of treatment and prognosis can be made. This is where PET (positron emission tomography) imaging plays the most important role. Radiology special-
ists can now examine the entire body to Ă€QGDQ\VSRWRIOXQJ cancer larger than one third of an inch in size no matter where it might be hiding from ordinary x-rays. PET scans are done at Olympic Medical Centerâ€™s Sequim campus.
The most exciting aspect of lung cancer treatment is in the use of drugs called â€œtargeted therapiesâ€?. â€“ Dr. Thomas Kummet
The most exciting aspect of lung cancer treatment is in the use of drugs called â€œtargeted therapiesâ€?. Basic science research into the genetic mutations that control cell behavior have led to development of drugs VSHFLĂ€FWRWKHELRORJLcal abnormalities that lead previously normal cells to change and destroy surrounding normal tissue and spread elsewhere in the body. While cancer cells can have over 300 genetic mutations, only about 10 of these
have been shown to have the ability to result in lung cancer. Two of these mutations have had their effects blocked by recently approved drugs VSHFLĂ€FIRUWKHLULQhibition. These drugs are â€œtargetedâ€? to the VSHFLĂ€FVRIWKHFDQFHU cell, and do not cause nausea, hair loss and immune system damage like standard chemotherapy can. While the new drugs have their own side effects, they are taken as pills, better tolerated, and much more effective than therapies previously available. These genetic mutations are seen more often in the fraction of lung cancer patients who are non smokers than in the smoking population, and the obvious hope is that the future will produce a drug for every mutation that leads to lung cancer. Olympic Medical Cancer Centerâ€™s radiation oncology program is now equipped with the latest in radiation therapy technology, and can now deliver higher doses to lung cancers with fewer toxic effects on the surrounding lung tissue. This enables patients with small tumors, but who have lung function too poor
to undergo surgery, to have their cancer treated with radiation with an excellent chance of cure. Lung cancer prevention studies have been tried but have failed WRĂ€QGDQ\YLWDPLQ or drug that might reduce the incidence of lung cancer, and therefore prevention programs for this disease continue to focus on smoking prevention and cessation activities. Smokers who want help quitting should contact their provider or the American Cancer Society for tips and programs to help improve their health. Sadly, most lung cancer patients lose the battle with their disease. Therefore, â€œPalliative Care,â€? which means focusing on the quality of life issues such as pain control and setting optimal goals for care outcomes can result in patients having the best and longest survival possible. Olympic Medical Centerâ€™s staff, its Home Health and Patient Navigator programs, and the communityâ€™s hospice programs all work to provide the best care possible to our communityâ€™s patients and their families.
primary. Any Superior Court judge candidate who wins a simple majority of votes automatically wins the position. Otherwise, the top two vote-getters will square off in the Nov. 6 general election.
Categories Candidates were graded from one to five in experience, legal ability, integrity, judgment/common sense, objectivity/impartiality, administrative ability, demeanor, temperament, organizational skills and work habits, and their overall average score determined from those 10 individual scores. Five was excellent, four good, three adequate, two poor and one deficient. â€œThe purpose of the poll is to get a general sense of how the participating members of the bar feel about the respective candidates in those 10 categories,â€? Barnhart said. â€œThe only thing we can take away from it is this is what those dues-paying bar members who voted think about the candidates.â€? The largest average score for a single quality was 4.41 for integrity for Melly, while the lowest average single score was 2.38 for experience for Payne. â€œThe attorneys know the other guys better than I, even though I was bar president in 2010,â€? said Payne, 55, adding that he moved from Bellingham to Port Angeles in 2008. â€œTheyâ€™re familiar with me as bar president but not as to the criteria in the poll,â€? Payne said Thursday. â€œI wasnâ€™t surprised at all. Itâ€™s small portion of the voters. It is what it is.â€? Johnson, 58, a privatepractice attorney for 34 years, said the law is a â€œvery competitiveâ€? profession. â€œIf I do well in a case thatâ€™s been litigated, then my opponent does not do as well,â€? said Johnson, who ran unsuccessfully in 2007 for the Superior Court judge position won by S. Brooke Taylor. â€œSometimes, hard feelings result, and sometimes, there are axes to grind.â€? â€œIâ€™m happy to be before the public and put my qualifications on the line for their scrutiny,â€? Johnson said, adding that eight or 10 more attorneys participating in the survey may have changed the outcome. â€œIt comes down to this fact: My clients are my supporters. If you are an attorney in private practice, would you give your opponents glowing marks?â€?

Serena Williams returns a shot to Agnieszka Radwanska.
Williams wins 14th Slam title LONNIE ARCHIBALD/FOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WIMBLEDON, England — For Serena Williams, the low point came in early 2011, when she spent hours laying around her home, overwhelmed by a depressing series of health scares that sent her to the hospital repeatedly and kept her away from tennis for 10 months. The high point came Saturday on Centre Court at Wimbledon, when Williams dropped down to the grass, hands covering her face. She was all the way back, a Grand Slam champion yet again. Her serve as good as there is, her grit as good as ever, Williams was dominant at the start and finish, beating Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 to win a fifth championship at the All England Club and 14th major title overall, ending a two-year drought. “I just remember, I was on the couch and I didn’t leave the whole day, for two days. I was just over it. I was praying, like, ‘I can’t take any more. I’ve endured enough. Let me be able to get through this,’” recalled Williams, a former No. 1 whose ranking slid to 175th after a fourthround loss at the All England Club last year, her second tournament back. “Coming here and winning today is amazing,” she said. “It’s been an unbelievable journey for me.” It certainly has. That’s why tears flowed during the on-court trophy ceremony. And why Williams squeezed tight during post-victory hugs with her parents and older sister Venus, who has five Wimbledon titles of her own — meaning that one pair of siblings who learned to play tennis on public courts in Compton, Calif., now accounts for 10 of the past 13 trophies. A few days after winning Wimbledon for the fourth time in 2010, Serena Williams cut both feet on broken glass while leaving a restaurant in Germany. She needed two operations on her right foot. Then she got blood clots in her lungs, for which she needed to inject herself with a blood thinner. Those shots led to a pool of blood gathering under her stomach’s skin, requiring another procedure. “That made her realize where her life was, really, and where she really belonged and that she really loved the game,” said Williams’ mother, Oracene Price. “You never appreciate anything until you almost lose it.” Against Radwanska, who was trying to be the first Polish Grand Slam singles champion, Williams was streaky at times, but also superb. She won the first five games and the last five. She swatted 17 aces, including four at 114 mph, 107 mph, 115 mph, 111 mph in one marvelous game to pull even at 2-all in the third set. That was part of a momentumswinging run when Williams claimed 15 of 18 points, and that quartet of aces raised her total for the fortnight to a tournament-record 102, surpassing her own mark of 89 in 2010; it’s also more than the top number for any man this year at Wimbledon. “So many aces,” said Radwanska, whose two-week total was 16, “and I couldn’t do much about it.” There had been a moment, ever so brief, when it appeared Williams might let Saturday’s match slip away.

In the second game, North Olympic struggled to find the gaps but hit the ball well against the hard-throwing Bellingham pitchers. Once again, Young led hitters, going 3 for 3 with a triple and an RBI. Begley drove in two runs, and Woods contributed one. Devin Batchelor and Hayden Gresli also had hits in the losing effort. Bellingham put up eight runs in the first two innings against North Olympic’s starting pitcher, but Guerrero entered the game in relief and held them to one run until the fifth inning when Bellingham took advantage of some fielding miscues to add an additional six runs.

Peguero hopes to stick with Mariners MCCLATCHY NEWS SERVICE
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Mariners left fielder Carlos Peguero, recently called up from Triple-A Tacoma, catches a fly ball hit by Oakland’s Coco Crisp on Friday.
SEATTLE – The Seattle Mariners have a number of players coming back after the All-Star break – Franklin Gutierrez, Mike Carp, Erasmo Ramirez – but for the next few days, the team will be looking at outfielder Carlos Peguero. Brought up from Tacoma on Thursday, Peguero started in right field Friday, and manager Eric Wedge made it clear he wanted to see the 25-year-old. “We’re going to try to get him in as much as we can,” Wedge said. Well, that would be the final three games before the All-Star break, which begins Monday. After the break? Wedge wouldn’t promise Peguero would stick with the team beyond the break. “We’ve got Gutierrez (concussion) and Carp (shoulder strain), who’ll be coming back. We’ve got an extra man in the bullpen right now, and Erasmo Ramirez will miss the first start after the break, then rejoin the rotation,” Wedge said. Simply put, Peguero needs a hot series to stay. On Friday, regular right fielder Ichiro was the designated hitter, with Casper Wells in left field, and Michael Saunders in center field.
cussion after taking a foul ball off his catcher’s mask – and if it had been up to him, he’d probably have played Friday. But it wasn’t. “I feel better, thank God,” Montero said. “Day-to-day,” Wedge said of the rookie. When asked if Montero were close, Wedge shook his head. “He’s closer,” Wedge said. “It’s not as bad as Gutierrez, but this isn’t something you rush.” Notes: Gutierrez is eligible to come off the sevenday disabled list after suffering a concussion, but won’t. “Next week may be optimistic.” If it weren’t for home games, third baseman Kyle Seager would almost certainly have been an AllStar. In his first 38 road games, Seager batted .316 with eight home runs and 33 RBI. Reliever Stephen Pryor, on the disabled list with a groin strain, threw a simulated game Friday and will report to the Mariners Class A team in California. He’ll get work there, then likely return to Tacoma if not Seattle within a few weeks. Wedge said after the AllMontero out Star break, pitcher Hisashi Jesus Montero came out Iwakuma will be in the of the Mariners’ game starting rotation, at least Wednesday with a mild con- until Ramirez returns.
Peguero acquitted himself well with his glove and his bat. Early in the game, he made a catch at the rightfield wall to rob Oakland’s Coco Crisp of a hit. In the ninth inning, Peguero belted a line drive to left field that was misplayed by A’s rookie Yoenis Cespedes, allowing Peguero to reach third base for a two-out triple. He was stranded there when a ground out by Dustin Ackley ended the inning. For the game, Peguero was 1 for 4 at the plate. In 49 games with TripleA Tacoma, Peguero batted .295 with 18 home runs and 41 RBI – the kind of production the Mariners dream about. “I’ve been working with (batting coach) Jeff Pentland, hitting off a tee every day,” Peguero said. “I’m more patient at the plate. I work on hitting pitches in the strike zone, not every pitch the pitcher throws. “I have a lot of expectations, a lot of confidence. I feel ready to be here.” For at least the new few days, he’ll stay.

Webb Simpson leads Greenbrier Classic THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Webb Simpson likes the way he’s avoiding bogeys and figures he’ll need to play smart again at the Greenbrier Classic to get his second win in three tournaments. The U.S. Open champion shot a 5-under 65 in the third round Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round. Simpson had his second straight bogey-free round to reach 14 under on The Greenbrier Resort’s Old White TPC Course. Troy Kelly was second after a 62. Rookie Charlie Beljan, J.B. Holmes and
Golf Ken Duke were 11 under. Beljan had a 67, Holmes a 66, and Duke a 65. Simpson isn’t disappointed that Tiger Woods isn’t around to challenge him. Woods missed the cut for only the ninth time in his PGA career. “When he’s not lurking around on Saturdays and Sundays, it makes it a little easier I think for other guys,” Simpson said. Simpson said he plans to peek at the leaderboard, “but the way I look at it is, I’ve got to go shoot under par [today].
“And if I don’t, somebody’s going to probably going to probably play pretty good. I think the golf course is playing in such a way that there’s plenty of birdie opportunities. “I’ve almost got to imagine that these guys are all going to shoot 4, 5 under. I’ve got to stay aggressive.”

Holmes had part of his skull removed in September 2011, four months after he started having vertigo symptoms. He returned to the tour in January.
While playing the minitour circuit several years ago, Kelly didn’t know what was causing pain in his left hip. He played through it for two years but got to the point where he could barely walk, so he went to a doctor and surgery followed. “For me to just play this game at a high level, I had to go get it done,” Kelly said.

Murray tries for British breakthrough BY STEVEN WINE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WIMBLEDON, England — The Brits know how to stage a coronation, and they’ll do so today for either regal Roger Federer or one of their own, Andy Murray. Queen Elizabeth II has another commitment, but the former Kate Middleton and the British prime minister will be on hand to see who reigns at Wimbledon. Plenty of history will be written in the men’s final at tennis’ most tradition-rich tournament. Federer can add to his record 16 Grand Slam championships, and he would tie a record by winning Wimbledon for a seventh time. He also would claim the ATP’s top ranking for the first time since June 2010, and match Pete Sampras’ record of 286 weeks at No. 1. “There’s a lot on the line for me,” Federer said. Murray, meanwhile, is merely trying to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam title since Fred Perry took Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships in 1936.
Wimbledon “It has been a great tournament so far,” Murray said. “I’ve just got to try to keep it together for the final.” Britain’s abuzz. Even without the queen, the Royal Box is certain to be packed, along with the rest of Centre Court. Tickets are going for more than 2,600 pounds ($4,000). Thousands have bought 8-pound ($12.40) grounds passes to picnic near Wimbledon’s practice courts on the grassy hill known these days as Murray Mount, watching the match on a huge video screen. Loyalties will be divided. Brits love Federer, the celebrated Swiss whose graceful game is so well suited to the All England Club. He’ll receive sentimental support because he has endured a reign delay, going 2½ years without a major title while being eclipsed by Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Now, at 30, he could become the first thirty-
something man to win Wimbledon since Arthur Ashe in 1975. Allegiance for the stolid Murray is more a matter of geography, and even then it’s complicated. He’s a native of Scotland, where there’s a campaign afoot to break away from Britain. Whenever Murray loses, the English tend to call him Scottish, not British. But for the moment, when it comes to lawn tennis, the United Kingdom is united. Brits invented the game and, in 1877, started Wimbledon. They’ve won the men’s title 35 times, more than any other country, but not since before World War II. And no British woman has won Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1977. Londoners have accepted the championship drought with good humor, especially where Murray is concerned. Waitresses at restaurants in Wimbledon village roll their eyes at the mention of his name. It doesn’t help that he has been beaten in the semifinals each of the past three years, nor that he has

A breakthrough victory came Friday versus Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, making the 25-year-old Murray the first
British man to reach the final since Bunny Austin in 1938. “People have been talking for 10 years that finally he was going to be the one to do it,” three-time Wimbledon champion John McEn-

serves and groundstrokes — she produced 23 baseline winners to her opponent’s five — she also showed off a deft touch, the sort of thing Radwanska specializes in.
After she breezed through the first set on a day when the wind whipped and the temperature was in the mid-50s, rain arrived, causing a delay of about 20 minutes between sets. Radwanska, who’s been fighting a respiratory illness and blew her nose at a changeover, quickly fell behind 3-1 in the second set. Right there is where she made a stand. Williams was playing in her 18th major final; Radwanska in her first.
A deep shot
Radwanska nervous Actually, Radwanska had never won a match beyond the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament until this week. So she acknowledged being “a little bit nervous in the beginning.” But the interruption let her “cool down a little bit,” explained Radwanska, who would have risen to No. 1 in the rankings by beating Williams but instead will be No. 2, behind Victoria Azarenka. “When I was going on the court the second time, I just felt like a normal match. Didn’t seem like a final anymore, so there was not that much pressure.” Radwanska played her usual steady game, and Williams began making more and more errors. A string of mistakes —

Olympic track gold medalist looking to become Britain’s first Tour champion, became the pre-race favorite after winning the ParisNice, Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine stage races this year. Wiggins has more breathing room than Cancellara when he was leader.
Five riders close Only five riders are within a minute of Wiggins, including Denis Menchov of Russia, who won the 2009 Giro d’Italia and the Spanish Vuelta — twice. The Swiss rider, by contrast, had had 22 riders within 48 seconds of his lead as Saturday’s stage began. With two time trials and more climbing days in the Alps and Pyrenees still to come, Wiggins played down speculation that he might’ve taken the lead too early with the finish in Paris on July 22.
“You can’t get too cocky in this race and choose when you take the yellow jersey. I’d much rather be in yellow than in hospital — like half the peloton,” he said, referring to injuries from crashes in recent days. Race organizers also tallied Saturday the full fallout of two bunch crashes a day earlier, including a high-speed one as riders were jockeying for position in a final sprint. A total of 13 riders dropped out due to injuries in the spills, bringing the number of withdrawals through seven stages to 17 — the highest number at this point since 1998. One of them was Garmin-Sharp leader and Giro champion Ryder Hesjedal of Canada. Wiggins crashed out of the 2011 Tour with a broken collarbone and said he felt “lucky” he has been trouble-free this year.

It’s incredible — it’s been a dream of mine since I was a kid.” As the pack disintegrated on the final climb, Evans tried an attack just before the super-steep patch in the last half-mile, but Froome beat him and made it look easy, leading Evans to wonder what he might be in for later. Cancellara, a time-trial and one-day classics specialist who had worn yellow since winning the prologue a week ago, was 1 minute, 52 seconds behind Froome — but more importantly 1:50 back of Wiggins. The Sky leader, who began the day 7 seconds behind Cancellara in second place, leads Evans by 10 seconds. Vincenzo Nibali of Italy was fourth to climb to third overall, 16 seconds behind. Wiggins, a three-time

LA PLANCHE DES BELLES FILLES SKI STATION, France — With two weeks left in the Tour de France, the two-man showdown that many predicted is taking shape, with Britain’s Bradley Wiggins already in the yellow jersey — and driver’s seat — while Cadel Evans isn’t. The 31-year-old Briton and his Team Sky dominated the race’s first summit finish Saturday, with Christophe Froome winning Stage 7 ahead of Evans and Wiggins close on the Australian defending champion’s back wheel. In the 123-mile trek from Tomblaine to La Planche des Belles Filles, Wiggins took the overall lead from Switzerland’s Fabian Cancellara and gave Britain its first yellow jersey in 12 years — and the first for Sky. “It’s a great day for the team, we won the stage and

Ahead 4-2, Williams earned a second break with a well-disguised forehand drop shot, then raised both arms aloft. “After that, it was: ‘I can definitely do this,’” Williams said. While Monday’s rankings will have her listed at No. 4, there’s no doubt who is at the top of the game right now. Seeded sixth at the All England Club, she beat the women who were No. 2 (Azarenka), No. 3 (Radwanska) and No. 4 (defending champion Petra Kvitova). At age 30, Williams is the oldest women’s singles champion at any major tournament since Martina Navratilova was 33 when she won Wimbledon in 1990. And Williams sees no end in sight. Asked Saturday evening what more she could possibly want, she replied: “Are you kidding? The U.S. Open. The Australian Open. The French Open. Wimbledon, 2013.” Seconds later, she declared: “I have never felt better.”

C Model-boat builders take sport to . . .
a new BY JENNIFER JACKSON FOR PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — When he was 4 years old, Dan Newland started building model airplanes, the kind with plastic parts you punch out and snap together. By the time he was in grade school, he had graduated to more complicated kits. “Once I started reading, the quality of construction got better,” he said. Newland is a Port Townsend boat-builder who designs, builds and races ocean-going sailboats and who has won three singlehanded trans-Pacific races. But he’s reverting to his boyhood hobby, joined by other members of the Port Townsend Yacht Club, in creating their own fleet of model racing sailboats, despite having the real thing. “It’s always been fun,” Newland said of building model boats. It was Michael Machette who proposed the idea to yacht club members after seeing a model-boat demonstration by Will Lesh at the Wooden Boat Festival last fall. Lesh, a Princeton University graduate, designed and makes traditional-style, wooden model-sailboat kits in Everson, near Bellingham.
Tippecanoe Boats Since he started the business, Tippecanoe Boats, in 1983, Lesh has sold more than 65,000 kits to people in 60 countries, he said in a phone interview last week. “I just sent shipments to Portugal, Malta and Afghanistan,” he said. Yacht clubs have been the base of his business, Lesh said, since they provide a pool of interested people to

Michael Machette, building Noir in foreground, consults with Alan Greenwald on installing the rudder. Greenwald, an orthopedic surgeon, bought a T37 kit two years ago, which sat in the box, he said, until he connected with the yacht club model-boat builders. create a fleet and hold races. Two Seattle yacht clubs have T37 fleets, he said, T standing for Tippecanoe and 37 the boat length in inches. Oak Harbor and Bainbridge Island yacht clubs also have fleets, he said. “It’s a Puget Sound happening,” Lesh said.
Challenge issued The Port Madison Yacht Club on Bainbridge Island already has contacted Machette to challenge the Port Townsend fleet to a regatta, suggesting they meet halfway at
Port Ludlow. But that will have to wait until the Port Townsend builders gets their boats together. So far, about half of the dozen kits ordered have been completed, Machette said. Last Thursday, he and others whose craft are in progress gathered at the Port Townsend Yacht Club, Gray Lady glides through the water on its inaugural sail in the Port Townsend Boat Haven marina. Each T37 kit is adjacent to the commercial boat dock in the boat haven, numbered by the maker. Gray Lady is No. 1552, which is painted on the sail for identification during races. to watch John Oliveira take his newly completed boat for Oliveira said as he used one much wind to glide across its inaugural sail. control to turn the rudder the water. It was spitting rain, but and bring the boat about, “It sails real good,” the Gray Lady didn’t need then another to let out the sails. For model-boat racing, the total weight of the boat (5 pounds for the T37) and the sail must conform to standards.
Customized details But because Lesh’s models are made from wood, the decks can be customized. Newland, who owns Pegasus Aeromarine, and Alan Greenwald, a local orthopedic surgeon, made their boats’ decks out of strips of planking instead of the sheet of mahogany provided. Boats also can be customized by color — Machette’s boat, Noir, has a black hull — and the kit builder provides sails in a variety of colors. Racing a boat you made yourself adds another dimension to the hobby, Lesh said. “It’s different sailing a boat you built,” he said.
Boats for movie
John Oliveira brings Gray Lady back to the dock after its first sail. The radio-controlled sailboats have a receiver inset in the deck that operates two servos — one that moves the rudder and one that controls the sheets (lines) that let out or bring in the sails.
Lesh also makes finished boats on request and was commissioned to make three identical T27s for a movie filmed in New York. Model-boat racing in the pond at Central Park figures in the plot, he said, and one of the lead characters gives a T27 to another as a gift. TURN

you. A tenBecker nis ball that hasnâ€™t the â€œoomphâ€? for a good game of tennis is still perfect for playing fetch with your dog. One important thing to know, though: Tennis balls are not chew toys. Put them away when youâ€™re done with your game of fetch. Dogs have been known to compress tennis balls in their mouths and then die when the ball springs back to full size in the back of the mouth, cutting off the air supply. And even if that never happens, the materials in a tennis ball are not made to be chewed on or swallowed by dogs. So have your fun, and lots of it. But donâ€™t leave the ball with your dog when youâ€™re done.
Q&A â€” with Gina Spadafori Q: Is it safe to run a dog with a bike? My dog loves it, but we got a lecture about it from a neighbor who thinks itâ€™s dangerous. What do you think? â€” via Facebook A: Letting your dog run alongside a bike is a great way to help him burn off a dayâ€™s pent-up energy without wearing yourself completely out in the process. But running with bikes is not for every dog â€” in fact, itâ€™s not for most dogs. But for those with serious exercise requirements, it can be a perfect fit. If you choose to bike with your dog, make sure your dog is in good health (check in with your veterinarian) and start slowly (both in terms of speed and distance) to make sure this activity suits him. Donâ€™t even try it if heâ€™s a

Keep your dog at a trot, not a run, and watch for signs of overheating. Never go out in the hottest part of the day, carry water to offer frequently, and walk your bike and your dog for a cool-down before calling it a day. Finally, invest in a bicycle attachment that holds your dogâ€™s leash â€” carrying the leash in your hand while biking is a recipe for a wreck, even if you have a well-behaved pup. After all, a darting squirrel or rabbit is more temptation than even most good dogs can take.

MARGARET MCKENZIE/PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
IF THEREâ€™S ANYTHING more versatile than a tennis ball, I canâ€™t imagine it. One afternoon, I just sat down with a pad and started jotting down all the things you can do with a dog and a tennis ball. Hereâ€™s what I came up with: â– Fetch. Toss, return, repeat. You know the drill. This is the game by which all dog activities are measured, and sometimes thereâ€™s just nothing better than the classic. â– Find. Hide the tennis ball, then let your dog find it. For dogs who are already retrievers, this game is remarkably easy to learn. Hide the ball in plain sight a couple of times so sheâ€™ll know what you want her to do, then watch how easily she can find it anywhere. â– Herd. Fetching uses one ball, but if youâ€™ve got a herding dog, try tossing out a few and giving your dog a place to gather them all together. Since this game works with your dogâ€™s natural instincts, most pick it up very quickly for a treat reward. â– Get wet. Water dogs love nothing more than the chance to go after a favorite ball and get wet. What more could a pup want? â– Monkey in the middle. Got kids? Got a dog? Amuse everyone with the classic schoolyard game with the dog playing the monkey. Pass the ball by tossing, rolling, kicking â€” whatever works â€” and give Rover a small treat each time he intercepts it and gives it back. â– Flyball. This one is a real sport and one that tennis-ball-loving dogs live for once they learn to play. Add a series of jumps to a tennis ball, and youâ€™ve got a fast-paced, wildly entertaining game for both people and pets, participants and spectators. Tennis balls are even better because you often can get them for free. If you have friends who are tennis players, ask them to save their old balls for

Hummingbird feeder frenzy on Hoh River THE RAIN FORESTS of Costa Rica? Southeast Arizona’s desert lands or the canyons of West Texas? We weren’t in any of those places, but we were surrounded by hummingbirds. The experience brought back memories of hummingbird hangouts where birders duck and throw up their hands as if to protect themselves from these fastflying birds. While they squeak, buzz, chirp and do battle with one another, the entire place seems under attack. This hummingbird hotspot was in a rain forest but much closer to home than Costa Rica. The action was at a neighbor’s cabin on the North Olympic Peninsula’s Hoh River. Readers have sent me photos showing this type of feeding frenzy at their hummingbird feeders, but this isn’t dozens of birds we are talking about. Sue said she had hundreds of them mobbing her feeders at different times. Most of the birds appeared to be rufous hummingbirds, but there were some young Anna’s in the midst of the whirring wings. Sue confirmed that both species are part of the action around their place.
BIRD WATCH hummingCarson birds nesting in this area, but the numbers we saw were a surprise. When hiking the Hoh, you encounter old logging clearcuts covered with young hemlocks. They have perfect tops if you are a male hummingbird guarding your territory. The bent-over tops make a good perch for surveying the surrounding terrain. You will see male hummingbirds scattered throughout the area, each on a favorite hemlock.
ists rarely visit. That evening, Julia remarked about how special it was to hike all day without seeing another person. “That isn’t possible in England, but it makes me feel good to know that this place exists,” she said. Our yard will never have the hummingbird numbers that make the Hoh their home, but it’s a great feeling to know they exist.

A hummingbird fuels up at a feeder before continuing its journey.
When considering this fact, you can’t help wondering if someone has estimated the hummingbird population along the Hoh or one of the other river valleys.

Guimond said, chasing the towheaded boy into the next room. â€œHeâ€™s a beast,â€? he added with a grin. Guimond, 36, is an active father who left a Seattle-area construction job that had often had him working six days a week, to create a more family-oriented lifestyle. Now he builds snowboards four days a week at a factory in Carlsborg. He works longer days, but has almost no commute and has three days a week to spend with his wife, Jennifer, and their son. Since moving to Sequim in November, Guimond has spent lots of time in the two First Teacher classrooms at the Sequim Community School, learning how to be the best dad he can be. â€œParents always think theyâ€™re not doing enough or are doing something wrong.
THE FIRST TEACHER Dungeness Kidsâ€™ Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, July 14, at Carrie Blake Park, 202 N. Blake Ave. in Sequim. Admission is free and children of all ages are welcome. Vendor and information booths are available for $50, or $20 for nonprofit organizations. A $200 sponsorship includes a booth and a business, organization or individualâ€™s name on publicity materials.
Entertainment at the event will include games, prizes, food, crafts, free books, music, a silent auction and clowns. Money raised at the fair will be used to continue offering the First Teacher newsletter to Clallam County parents of children birth to age 5.

elderly, energy-inefficient building, is soon to close. The Sequim School Board opted earlier this year to shutter it, and the closure will save the district about $90,000 a year. So, as fruitful as time in the First Teacher room has been for families like the Guimonds, it comes to an end this summer. First Teacherâ€™s founder and executive director, Cynthia Martin, couldnâ€™t say where or whether the playroom will find a new location. â€œFirst Teacher does not have a home for next year. Since we are a free program, we canâ€™t afford to pay rent,â€? Martin noted.
â€˜A unique placeâ€™ Especially first-time parents, like me,â€? Guimond said. Guimond and his wife have been attending parenting classes and play groups at the Community School, 220 W. Alder St., since November.
Parenting tools In the classes, the Guimonds have picked up the tools to be the best parents they can be. These include a guide for what is â€œnormalâ€? for different ages, something that soothes their worries as their first child grows up.
At first, the couple was concerned that something wasnâ€™t right when Riley played. He couldnâ€™t seem to sit still to read, and ran from one activity to another, Guimond said. â€œHeâ€™s never been a big sitter,â€? he added. But through First Teacher, they learned that Rileyâ€™s behavior was appropriate for his age. Riley has matured and learned to sit through short-story times at the First Teacher classroom. He now enjoys a chance to sit and read with his parents, Guimond said. But the Sequim Community School, an
â€œFirst Teacher is a unique place: We need two rooms where we can leave out toys and books, and we need to be near a playground,â€? like the Childrenâ€™s Playground beside the Community School. â€œIf someone could come forward and provide us with space near the Childrenâ€™s Playground or a park, that would be wonderful.â€? First Teacher was responsible for the Childrenâ€™s Playground, Martin added. The place was paid for by grants and private donations, and installed with help from volunteers. TURN

This week’s question: What’s your idea of the American dream?
“The freedoms to work toward your personal goals and the opportunity to achieve your dreams. “All people, I believe, strive for that. Also the American dream is to be able to support a family in the ‘good life,’ however they define that. “Also to be an active part of your local community and to worship as you choose. “In other words, to be able to reach and dream beyond yourself.”
“Since I’m a pet lover, it would be that every home would have a rescued cat or dog. “There is so many needy and homeless pets out there. Families should adopt them from shelters and not from some expensive breeders. “Next would be being able to afford health care, which is so important. “Also home ownership is important. All Americans should have the opportunity to own a home and get a higher education.”
“The traditional family with a biological mom and dad in a home with a white picket fence out front. “Have a steady employment and have 2.5 kids, whatever that means. “I would also want a regular pet and not a strange one I’ve heard of recently, like a ‘Labradoodle’ or a ‘Chiweenie’ designer dog breed. “A nice house with a big front porch as a place to visit with your friendly neighbors. That’s the American dream.” ”

Dear Straight Answers: Here it is: Peter may be feeling down about his troubles, but he won’t find the answers he’s looking for at the bottom of an empty whiskey glass. You know that. Deep down inside, so does he. You might have tried to tell him this, but unless he is willing to accept this and do something about it, nothing will change — and yes, you’ll be wasting your time trying to make him into something that he is not yet ready to be. The time has come to say goodbye. If you’re in the wrong relationship, getting out of it frees you to be ready when the right relationship comes along. And you don’t want to miss out on that opportunity. Sure, there’s always the possibility that he may realize he’s lost you, and this may finally be the catalyst for his change. Still, I’d suggest that you don’t wait around to find out when or if that ever happens.

“Bring Retirement to Life”
Parent to Parent Jodie Lynn a few were not. However, the more we tried to talk to him, the more he would withdraw. Finally, I talked with some of the other moms and one of them said they had found out that their 16-year-old daughter was doing the same thing. They decided to allow her to continue with her plan due in large part to it being an experiment for a class. But we didn’t know how to handle our situation. After talking to the school counselor, we told our son that if he was going to do it, due to his age and trying to protect him from predators, he would need to share the comments each week with us. To our surprise, he went along with it. It was only a short time later that he ended up deleting everything. We were lucky when he decided that it was silly to allow total strangers to rate pictures of him when they didn’t know anything about him. Talk to your daughter and try to monitor the things she publicly displays. Hopefully, soon she will see that it isn’t something positive and she should work on whatever bothers her with the help of family and friends, or maybe even a professional. — T.N. in Austin, Texas

DEAR JOHN: MY husband and I are having a baby next month. I’m looking forward to this blessed event, except for one thing: Both my mother and my mother-inlaw want to be in the delivery room with us. We will be delivering in one of the hospital’s cozy birthing suites. Besides the doctor and nurses, we will also have a doula there, so it’s going to be a tight fit. Whereas I had invited my mom, I now feel I should rescind the invitation because it’s the reason my mother-in-law feels she has to be there, too — with her video camera. Frankly, my reason for saying no is that she constantly chatters and that would make me a nervous wreck. What’s your advice? — Blessed Event, in Atlanta

Delicious with pure heart
CONTINUED FROM C6
BY BETSY WHARTON
Many of these sites are anonymous, but people in your childâ€™s life can find out about her involvement and use it to tease or bully her. Personally, I donâ€™t think it is healthy to be sharing personal information on the Internet in this way, especially since your daughter is as young as she is. She might not have the emotional capability to withstand, understand and read between the lines of various posts or recognize clear and present danger. Since school is already out, you may have to approach her doctor or seek a professional counselor to help her understand the reason she feels the need to do this. Itâ€™s certainly not a game and should be taken seriously and monitored carefully.
change, be ready with a bowl of dilutedlemon or vinegar water, and plunge the sliced artichokes in. When the grill is ready, pat dry the artichokes and brush them with olive oil. Wrap artichokes in foil to seal in the moisture, and grill for 5-7 minutes until tender. Remove from grill and toss with the vinaigrette. Allow them to sit for an hour or more, and the flavors will mingle.
FOR PENINSULA PROFILE
ONE OF MY core beliefs: The best way to eat an artichoke is together. At my house, artichokes usually involve a pressure cooker, a couple of dipping bowls of butter, mayonnaise or a vinaigrette and a big bowl for the tailings. It is the start of a slow dinner, with room for conversation between bites. Itâ€™s a meal for the table, not the television couch, and it takes time and cooperation. One recent evening, we sat around the table taking turns tearing away the outer petals, tasting the tender meat and, at last, the much-anticipated artichoke heart, divided among us and consumed in a bite. The artichoke has it all, a poet friend once Wharton said. â€œIt is metaphorical. There is the mundane effort of scraping the leaves. Then comes the dangerous task of removing the choke . . . there is reward: a pure heart, tender and delicious.â€? Artichokes are in season on the North Olympic Peninsula, now until the last weeks of summer. So here are a couple of ways to enjoy them.
Can you help? My son is 10, and I just had a baby girl. What is the best way to help him understand that he is still important and greatly loved but that his new little sister needs more attention? He seems very jealous and I just donâ€™t know how to help him adjust to the amount of time she requires.

Soak artichokes in salty water to help remove any garden insects hiding inside. Steam whole artichokes in 2-3 inches of water in a pot with a tight-fitting lid. Depending on their size, this will take from 40-55 minutes. Add more water to the steaming pot as needed. Test for doneness by peeling off an outer petal, letting it cool and sampling it for tenderness. Using a pressure cooker will speed
