Huge state deficit, other legislation still to be tackled

1,200 Sequim-area residents will be surveyed by City Hall By Jeff Chew

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — Are city management and staff doing their jobs? Why do you live in Sequim? How should the city of Sequim spend transportation benefit district dollars? These and other questions are suggested for a community survey the City Council is fashioning to find what services are wanted by people living inside the city and nearby. A separate survey asking for residents’ opinions on parks and recreation programs and facilities also has been designed by the council and its parks advisory board. The council last year budgeted $30,000 for ETC Institute, based in Olathe, Kan., to formulate and conduct the survey. ETC has a 100-person staff that has conducted 3,000 such surveys over the past 40 years, said ETC consultant Ron Vine, who worked with the City Council on the surveys Monday night.


he idea is “to get a statistically valid idea of what the public thinks,” says City Manager Steve Burkett.

The survey will take about six weeks to administer and another 12 to 13 weeks to process, Vine told the council. Sample surveys from other cities were studied for questions and approach. After council and parks board members shared their suggested questions, City Manager Steve Burkett said city staff a∫nd ETC would take the questions and produce drafts. “When we think it’s ready, we’ll send it to the council for comments,” Burkett said. The idea, he said, is “to get a statistically valid idea of what the public thinks.”

OLYMPIA — As the state struggles to climb out of the Great Recession, state lawmakers are focusing on cutting back, consolidating and creating jobs. Any proposal with a price tag attached is sure to receive extra scrutiny, and the catchphrase “get Washington working again” is everywhere in the state Capitol. Halfway through the 105-day session, legislators have approved stacks of bills aimed at Gregoire trimming government spending, from requiring all counties to vote by mail instead of polling centers to ending the “retire-rehire” practice that has allowed several thousand state employees to earn both a paycheck and a pension. Most bills that aren’t necessary for the state budget died this week if they hadn’t passed either the House or the Senate. Here’s a look at what’s still in play: ■  The budget: Lawmakers spent more than a month negotiating a package of spending cuts and fund transfers worth about $370 million, but they still must slash $226 million from the current fiscal year’s deficit before moving on to the projected $5 billion shortfall in the upcoming two-year budget. The 2010 fix includes cuts to K-12 education, higher education and programs that benefit the poor. Turn



PA woman pleads not guilty to fatal collision Alcohol level was 3 times over legal limit, judge is told By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles woman who pleaded not guilty Wednesday to vehicular homicide in which a nurse was killed tested for a blood-alcohol

content almost three times over the legal limit, a Superior Court judge was told. Amber D. Steim, 24, faces an April 25 trial in the Class A felony Steim of vehicular homicide under the influence. Ellen J. DeBondt, 44, of Cres-

cent Beach, a home health nurse affiliated with Olympic Medical Center, was killed in the wreck on state Highway 112 Sunday morning in which Steim’s pickup truck crossed the centerline. Steim remained in Clallam County jail in lieu $50,000 bail Wednesday night. Earlier Wednesday, Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor lowered the bail from the original $100,000 during Steim’s arraignment.

“That’s as far as it’s going to go,” Taylor said. “And Ms. Steim, if you do manage to make bail, you will not be behind the wheel of a vehicle under any circumstances. “Is that clear?” “Yes, your honor,” Steim replied. The State Patrol said Steim was driving westbound in a Toyota pickup when the truck collided with a pickup driven by DeBondt on the shoulder of the eastbound lane of Highway 112.

The wreck occurred near Oxenford Road just before 8 a.m. DeBondt was pronounced dead at the scene. While arguing in court to continue the $100,000 bail, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg cited a Port Angeles police interview with Steim at Olympic Medical Center on Sunday in which the officer said Steim was intoxicated and “completely incapable of operating a motor vehicle safely.” Turn

Mel Gibson to plead in battery case MEL GIBSON HAS reached a plea agreement with prosecutors who plan to file a misdemeanor battery charge against the Oscar winner over a fight last year with his then-girlfriend, a person with knowledge of the case said Wednesday in Los Angeles. Gibson will appear in person to enter the plea, according to the person who was not authorized Gibson to discuss details of the agreement publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Gibson was expected to be formally charged this week, and the agreement could allow the actor-director to avoid jail time. The charge stems from a dispute between Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva in January 2010. The Russian musician did not report the incident until months later, after the pair broke up and had negotiated a custody agreement involving their infant daughter.

Gibson’s attorney, Blair Berk, said in a written statement that Gibson sought an agreement to resolve the case with his children in mind. “I know from almost 20 years as a criminal defense lawyer that sometimes justice can come for a client at too high a personal price,” Berk’s statement reads. “That is particularly so for Mel, whose right to due process can only be exercised in this case with an enormous media circus attached.”

Lamborghini stolen Police said a thief using climbing gear rappelled into a San Francisco exotic car dealership and stole television celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s $200,000-plus Lamborghini sports car. The bright-yellow Gallardo owned by the star of the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins Fieri and Dives” was taken Tuesday. Police investigators told the San Francisco Chronicle and KPIX a thief climbed to the roof of the dealership, then rappelled into the showroom. The garage door lock was cut, and the Lam-

borghini was driven away. KPIX said the swashbuckling crook left behind a bag of mountaineering gear. Fieri, who lives in Santa Rosa, Calif., could not be reached, and the car dealership has refused comment.

Ja Rule to prison Ja Rule is set to go to prison in June in a New York City gun case. On Wednesday, a judge set a June 8 date for the platinum-selling rapperactor’s sentencing. His Ja Rule lawyer said he’ll spend the intervening months finishing a new album, “Renaissance Project,” and taking care of tax matters. The 35-year-old performer pleaded guilty in December to attempted weapon possession. He agreed to a two-year prison term. Police said they found a loaded gun in a rear door of his luxury sports car when it was stopped for speeding after a July 2007 concert. Ja Rule was nominated for a 2002 best rap album Grammy Award for “Pain is Love.” His movie credits include 2001’s “The Fast and the Furious” and 2003’s “Scary Movie 3.”

Briefly: Nation NPR president resigns after tea party video WASHINGTON — NPR president and CEO Vivian Schiller resigned Wednesday under pressure, a day after an undercover video showed one of her executives on a hidden camera calling the tea party racist and saying the news organization would be better off without taxpayer money. The shakeup comes at a critical time. Conservative politicians are again pressing to end congressional funding for NPR, Schiller money the organization said it needs to keep operating public radio and television stations in some of the nation’s smallest communities. The White House defended the funding, saying there remains a need for public broadcasting. Schiller also faced criticism for her firing of analyst Juan Williams over comments he made about Muslims. She told The Associated Press that the recent remarks made by her fellow executive Ron Schiller, who is not related to her, were outrageous and unfortunate, and her staying on would only hurt NPR’s fight for federal money.

Both budgets rejected WASHINGTON — The Democratic-led Senate on Wednes-

day emphatically rejected a budget-slashing House spending bill as too draconian. It then immediately killed a rival Democratic plan that was derided by moderate Democrats as too timid in its drive to cut day-to-day agency budgets. The votes to scuttle the competing measures were designed, ironically, to prompt progress. The idea was to show tea party-backed GOP conservatives in the House that they need to pare back their budgetcutting ambitions while at the same time demonstrating to Democratic liberals that they need to budge, too.

Gingrich’s infidelity ATLANTA — Newt Gingrich said his passion for his country contributed to his marital infidelity. In an interview posted Wednesday by The Christian Broadcasting Network, Gingrich — who recently converted to Catholicism — said he had sought God’s forgiveness for mistakes in his past. “There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate,” Gingrich said. “What I can tell you is that when I did things that were wrong, I wasn’t trapped in situation ethics, I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them,” he said. “I found that I felt compelled to seek God’s forgiveness. Not God’s understanding, but God’s forgiveness.” Gingrich went on to say that he and his third wife, Callista, now have a great marriage. The Associated Press

Wis. strips workers of bargaining rights GOP bypasses Democrats By Scott Bauer

The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate voted Wednesday night to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from public workers after discovering a way to bypass the chamber’s missing Democrats. All 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois nearly three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to consider Gov. Scott Walker’s socalled “budget repair bill” — a proposal introduced to plug a $137 million budget shortfall. The Senate requires a quorum to take up any measures that spend money. But Republicans on Wednesday split from the legislation the proposal to curtail union rights, which spends no money, and a special conference committee of state lawmakers approved the bill a short time later. The lone Democrat present on the conference committee, Rep. Peter Barca, shouted that the surprise meeting was a violation of the state’s open meetings law, but

Republicans voted over his objections. The Senate convened within minutes and passed the measure without discussion or debate. Before the sudden votes, Democratic Sen. Bob Jauch said if Republicans “chose to ram this bill through in this fashion, it will be to their political peril. They’re changing the rules. They will inflame a very frustrated public.”

Walker ‘applauds’ the vote Walker said after the votes that Senate Democrats had plenty of opportunities to come home. “I applaud the Legislature’s action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government,” the governor said in a statement. Walker’s proposal has touched off a national debate over union rights and prompted tens of thousands of demonstrators to converge on Wisconsin’s capital for weeks of protests. Spectators in the gallery Wednesday night screamed “You are cowards” as the Senate voted.

“In 30 minutes, 18 state Senators undid 50 years of civil rights in Wisconsin. Their disrespect for the people of Wisconsin and their rights is an outrage that will never be forgotten,” said Democratic Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller. “Tonight, 18 Senate Republicans conspired to take government away from the people. “Tomorrow, we will join the people of Wisconsin in taking back their government.” The drama unfolded less than four hours after Walker met with GOP senators in a closed-door meeting. He emerged from the meeting saying senators were “firm” in their support of the bill. Democrats had been calling all day Wednesday for Walker and Republicans to compromise. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said earlier that Republicans had been discussing concessions Walker’s office had offered, including allowing public workers to bargain over their salaries without a wage limit. Several GOP senators facing recall efforts had publicly called for compromise. Union leaders weren’t happy with the concessions, and Democrats had not signed off on them.

Briefly: World Broadcasting crew detained, beaten in Libya LONDON — Three British Broadcasting Corp. staff were detained, beaten and subjected to mock executions by proregime soldiers in Libya while attempting to reach the western city of Zawiya, the broadcaster said Wednesday. The news organization said the crew, members of a BBC Arabic team, were detained Monday by Moammar Gadhafi loyalists at a checkpoint about six miles south of Zawiya. Chris Cobb-Smith, a British journalist and part of the crew, said the group were moved between several locations, in some cases alongside civilian captives who had visible injuries from heavy beatings. On Tuesday, the crew were driven to a building in Tripoli that they believed was the headquarters of Libya’s overseas intelligence service. The men were told to bow their heads and line along a wall by soldiers. “A man with a small submachine gun was putting it to the nape of everyone’s neck in turn. He pointed the barrel at each of us. When he got to me at the end of the line, he pulled the trigger twice. The shots went past my ear,” Cobb-Smith said. The BBC said the men were held for 21 hours before they were released and have since left Libya.

Real reforms needed CAIRO — Nobel laureate Mohamed ElBaradei, former

head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, said Wednesday that he will run for president only if a real democratic system is in place, not the reforms Egypt’s military leaders are proposing. ElBaradei told a private Egyptian television station that suggested constitutional amendments to move Egypt toward democracy are “superficial.” He appealed to the military rulers to scrap them or delay a scheduled March 19 referendum on them. “We are at a decisive period in Egypt’s history,” he told ONTV. “We shouldn’t rush. Everything should be on a solid basis.” The constitutional amendments limit a president to two four-year terms. They also allow independents and opposition members to run, impossible under the regime of deposed President Hosni Mubarak.

Revised constitution RABAT, Morocco — King Mohammed VI said Wednesday that Morocco will revise its constitution for the first time in 15 years, aiming to strengthen democracy in the face of a push across the Arab world. In a rare TV and radio speech to the nation, the popular monarch said a new commission would suggest constitutional revisions to him by June, and the overall project would be put to Moroccan voters in a referendum. “By launching today the work of constitutional reform, we embark on a major phase in the process of consolidation of our model of democracy and development,” said the king.

Oil installations ablaze in Libya as battle continues By Maggie Michael and Paul Schemm The Associated Press

RAS LANOUF, Libya — A giant yellow fireball shot into the sky, trailed by thick plumes of black smoke Wednesday after fighting between rebels and forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi set two oil installations ablaze and inflicted yet more damage on Libya’s crippled energy industry. In the west, Gadhafi claimed victory in recapturing Zawiya, the city closest to the capital that had fallen into opposition hands. The claim could not immediately be verified; phone lines there have not been working during a deadly six-day siege. State TV showed a crowd of hundreds, purportedly in Zawi-

ya’s main square, shouting “The people want Colonel Gadhafi!” but the location of the rally could not be independently confirmed. Western journalists based in Tripoli were taken late Wednesday to a stadium on the outskirts of Zawiya that was filled with Gadhafi loyalists waving green flags in a similar scene, complete with fireworks. Libyan TV cameras filmed the celebrations as food, drinks and cooking oil were distributed. Government escorts refused journalists’ requests to visit the city’s main square. The fall of Zawiya to antiGadhafi residents early on in the uprising that began Feb. 15 illustrated the initial, blazing progress of the opposition.

But Gadhafi has seized the momentum, battering the rebels with airstrikes and artillery fire and repulsing their westward march toward the capital, Tripoli. Gadhafi’s successes have left Western powers struggling to come up with a plan to support the rebels without becoming ensnared in the complex and fastmoving conflict. On Wednesday, a high-ranking member of the Libyan military flew to Cairo with a message for Egyptian army officials from Gadhafi, but no further details were known. President Barack Obama’s national security team weighed how to force Gadhafi from power, but the White House said no action was imminent.

Jared Lee Loughner, who smiled as he was led into the courtroom, appeared before U.S. District Judge Larry Burns in khaki prison clothes, his once-shaved head now featuring short, dark hair and sideburns. He pleaded not guilty to a slew of federal charges, including trying to assassinate Giffords, attempting to kill two of her aides and murdering federal Judge John Roll and Giffords staffer Gabe Zimmerman.

THE FOOD AND Drug Administration on Wednesday approved the first new drug to treat lupus in more than 50 years, a milestone that medical experts say could prompt development of other drugs that are even more effective in treating the debilitating immune system disorder. Known as Benlysta, the injectable drug is designed to relieve flare-ups and pain caused by lupus, a littleunderstood and potentially fatal ailment in which the body attacks its own tissue and organs. Biotech drugmaker Human Genome Sciences Inc. spent 15 years developing Benlysta and will co-market it with GlaxoSmithKline PLC.

THE FATHER WAS making his rounds in his milk truck and the mother was in the barn, milking the cows, when their 3-year-old daughter smelled smoke and ran for help. By the time the parents reached their farmhouse, it was too late: Seven of their eight children were killed in a furious blaze Tuesday night in Pennsylvania’s dairy country. The victims ranged in age from 7 months to 11 years. As schoolmates, friends and firefighters mourned, neighbors in the heavily Amish and Mennonite area converged on the farm to help out with the chores Wednesday morning, a few arriving by horse and buggy.

DISCOVERY ENDED ITS career as the world’s most-flown spaceship Wednesday, returning from orbit for the last time and taking off in a new direction as a museum piece. After a flawless trip to the International Space Station, the shuttle swooped through a few wispy clouds on its way to Cape Canaveral, Fla. “To the ship that has led the way time and time again, we say, ‘Farewell, Discovery,’” declared Mission Control commentator Josh Byerly. Discovery now leads the way to retirement as NASA winds down the 30-year shuttle program in favor of interplanetary travel.

The tax break will allow businesses to avoid an expected 36 percent jump in unemployment taxes and temporarily upped benefits for unemployed workers by $25 a week. Washington’s unemployment insurance is still in much better shape than many around the country; 35 states currently have bankrupt unemployment insurance funds. ■  Department of Education: The governor’s proposal to consolidate all of Washington’s education programs and committees into one cabinet-level department has passed the Senate, but the House is offering an alternative approach. The two bills are far apart philosophically, but lawmakers say they have plenty of time to compromise. ■  Medical marijuana: Lawmakers are working on a bill that further clarifies the state’s law on medical marijuana sales, distribution and growth. It passed the Senate and is now in the House, even though opponents argued that it moved the state closer to legalization. The measure has received support even from Republicans, including the Senate minority leader. ■  Drunken driving: Several drunken driving measures introduced in the House were meshed together into one bill: It increases the minimum jail time for first-time offenders, requires the installation of ignition interlock devices in negligent and reckless driving convictions, and clarifies the number of

The House also approved a bill allowing courts to establish specialty DUI courts, which would require offenders to go through treatment. ■  Campaign finance disclosure: The Senate approved a bill tightening regulations for campaign finance disclosure. The measure focuses on transparency after a high-profile scandal last year. Political action groups would face more specific naming guidelines and stricter contribution reporting requirements to ensure voters know where information comes from. ■  Education reform: A variety of education reform ideas — some to save money and others to spend it — are still moving through the Legislature. A Running Start bill would allow colleges to limit free high school enrollment in the program to help deal with budget cuts and overenrollment. A Guaranteed Education Tuition bill would allow the popular pre-paid tuition program’s governing board to put new restrictions on how many GET units can be purchased, when they can be used and for what. ■  Phosphorus: A measure that passed the House would limit the use of phosphorus in lawn fertilizers over concerns that it contributes to harmful algae blooms in lake and river water. This was one of four priorities of the environmental community. ■  Oil spill response: The House passed a measure to beef up response to

oil spills in the state, in the wake of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year. The bill calls for extra contingency planning requirements for tank vessels, among other things. ■  Stormwater fee: A House measure would charge a 1 percent fee on the wholesale value of petroleum products, pesticides and fertilizers to raise an estimated $100 million a year for local stormwater control projects. Oil, agriculture and other business interests are opposing the bill, which is stalled in committee. Neither the Senate or House passed their respective bills, SB5604 and HB 1735, but the measures are still alive under the budget loophole. ■  Rape victim testimony: In response to a young woman who climbed on top of the King County Courthouse rather than face her accused rapist in trial, the House passed a bill to require sexual assault defendants to use a thirdparty for cross examination when representing themselves in court. The bill aims to protect victims from being retraumatized, and now moves to the Senate. ■  Inmate assault compensations: In response to the slaying of corrections officer Jayme Biendl, prison guards lobbied for a new law to allow them to collect damages from inmates who assault them. The bill aims to lower inmates’ income as a deterrent to violent behavior, and passed unanimously in the Senate and advanced to the House.

Flight risk? Anderson argued that Steim is not a flight risk because she was born and raised in Port Angeles and has good family support. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Ann Lundwall countered that Steim grew up in the same household as Bernard Gilbert “Pete” Barnes, a Port Angeles man who pleaded guilty to six felony drug trafficking and money-laundering charges in 2007. Anderson took issue with the reference. “First of all, I think that’s the worst kind of guilt by association,” Anderson said. “Mr. Barnes is in prison and will be in prison for some time to come. “Mr. Barnes is not her natural father, but there is certainly a relationship there. “But under the circumstances, I think it’s improper to consider that in a bail hearing.”

Steim’s record Steim’s court record includes a conviction of first-degree negligent driving Jan. 25. She had been arrested Nov. 20 for investigation of physical control of a vehicle under the influence. Witnesses told police that Steim appeared to be intoxicated as she was buying gas at a Port Angeles convenience store at 2:19 a.m. Nov. 20. The Port Angeles police report said Steim at that time registered a 0.208 percent blood-alcohol level on a portable breathalyzer. Steim told police then that she had been arrested for one prior DUI. Steim was the driver in a car vs. pedestrian collision in 2007 that killed Irene Harris, 44. Steim was not charged with any crime in that incident, and alcohol was not involved, police said. An Acura Integra sedan driven by Steim struck Harris in the intersection of Front and Albert streets in Port Angeles. “The concern here is not to mete out punishment before there is a conviction,” Judge Taylor said Wednesday. “Ms. Steim is presumed to be innocent until proven otherwise. “My concern is the driving history and the fact that Ms. Steim is on probation for an alcohol-related driving offense only a month or two into that probation when we have this incident. “That suggests that she is not paying a great deal of attention to the orders of the District Court, for sure.” Reporter Rob Ollikainen can be reached at 360-417-3537 or at rob. ollikainen@peninsuladailynews. com.

A nurse said Steim’s blood-alcohol level was 0.239 percent, Troberg said. The legal limit in Washington state is 0.08 percent. “Anyone who would drive under those conditions is a real threat to the community,” Troberg said. Ralph Anderson, Steim’s defense attorney, requested a $20,000 bail with the understanding that his client would not be allowed to drive. “This is a horrible accident,” Anderson said. “This is tragic, certainly, but our goal, I think, is to make sure there aren’t two tragedies.” Anderson said Steim suffered a head wound and possibly a concussion in the crash, and that he would seek an escorted furlough for Steim to see a doctor.

Crash involves PT school bus; PA driver hurt By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

GARDINER — A threevehicle collision involving a school bus, a semitruck and a passenger car Wednesday morning on U.S. Highway 101 resulted in one minor injury, with no children hurt. The collision 11 miles southeast of Port Townsend blocked the southbound lane for a little more than an hour. Traffic was cleared by 9:30 a.m. after the 8:12 a.m. crash, according to the state Department of Transportation. Delores L. Briggs, 79, of Port Angeles suffered neck and back pain, the State Patrol said. She was treated at Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles and discharged, a hospital spokeswoman said. The five children on the

bus were uninjured and taken to school in another vehicle; the driver of the truck also was not hurt, said State Patrol Trooper D.L. Merritt, who was on the scene.

pushing it into the back of the bus. Merritt said both drivers will be cited, Briggs for improper stopping and Melsheimer for following too close.

State Patrol account

All wearing safety belts

The State Patrol gave this account: A Port Townsend School District bus driven by Colleen Jensen, 54, of Port Townsend had pulled over on southbound U.S. Highway 101 near Old Gardiner Road to pick up children. The bus’ yellow lights were flashing, but its stop paddle was not deployed. Briggs stopped her 2004 Chrysler Town and Country van in the roadway behind the bus. A 1995 Kenworth tractor-trailer driven by John Melsheimer, 57, of Sequim hit Briggs’ car from behind,

All three drivers were wearing safety belts. The 2010 Bluebird school bus was driven to Chimacum for inspection and repairs, Merritt said. The semi was inspected by the State Patrol and was driven away from the scene. The State Patrol reported that the road was wet at the time of the collision.

Man held in Dr. King Day bomb case By Gene Johnson and Nicholas K. Geranios

The Associated Press

SPOKANE — A man tied to a white supremacist organization was arrested Wednesday on charges that he left a sophisticated bomb along a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade route in Spokane. Kevin William Harpham, 36, of Northeastern Washington made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Spokane and waived his right to a bail hearing. He has been charged on one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and one count

of possessing an unregistered explosive device in a case the FBI has called an act of domestic terrorism. A federal complaint provided no details of the investigation or what led to Harpham’s arrest nearly two months after city workers found the bomb, which had been left in a backpack Jan. 17 on a bench.

Bomb operational The city workers alerted authorities, and the device was defused without incident. An FBI affidavit made in support of the charges remained under seal, and a federal public defender assigned to represent

in the general area. A federal law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity and declining to provide addiMary Verner tional details because the Spokane mayor case is ongoing, said Harpham was a white ence on a different subject supremacist. in Washington, D.C., said the bomb was operational.

The bomb, which contained shrapnel and a chemical component, was sent to an FBI lab in Quantico, Va., and the agency offered a $20,000 reward for information from the public. Harpham, who was shackled at the ankles Wednesday in court, will remain in the Spokane County Jail unless he changes his mind and asks for bail. A grand jury will meet March 22 and could issue an indictment. The Army said Harpham was a soldier at Fort Lewis near Tacoma from 19961999.

‘Doom’ comes to Peninsula College stage By Paige Dickerson Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Video game monsters and suburban dissonance will invade the stage at Peninsula College tonight through Saturday. Jennifer Haley’s “Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom” will be performed at the Peninsula College’s Little Theater at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles, at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday, with matinees at 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Admission is $10, with students admitted free with college identification. The play is set in a suburban subdivision where parents find their teenagers addicted to online horror video games, which are also set in a subdivision with identical houses. “It is a play that is very topical,” said the play’s director, Peninsula College graduate Andrew Shanks. “It is a very dark satire on the 1950s suburban nuclear aesthetic and put into a modern context, with

technology thrown into the equation,” he said. Shank said that, though video games are used to tell the story, the play isn’t essentially about them.

Dark satire “It is about the miscommunication of families, and it is about technology widening the gap between generations, between friends and strangers and the closest family members,” he said. The message of the play

is the reason he selected it for his debut as a director, he said. “I’m not being a naturalist, saying that we should throw our cell phones in a pile and light them on fire and go live in a log cabin,” he said. “I just think we should take a step back and see how addicted we are to technology in general and just talk to each other every once in awhile.” Shanks said he took a risk with the show by staging it differently than any

other he has seen: Instead of sitting in the audience chairs, the attendees will be seated onstage with the actors. “They will be able to hear us breathe, cry, move,” he said. Shanks said the play contains mature themes and content and is aimed at an adult audience. The production stars Gwendolynn Barbee-Yow, Quinton Chastain, John Manno, Amy Meyer, Zachery Moorman, Jeremiah Paulsen, Sean Peck-Collier,

Colby Thomas, Apryl Weikel and Corinne Wright. Stage managers are Carolyn and Crystal Keene. Fight choreography was done by Tyson Dailey and original music by Jake Hanna. Costumes were designed by Richard Stephens, who is also an advertising salesman for the Peninsula Daily News.

PA man charged in investigation of third-degree child rape By Rob Ollikainen Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — A 21-year-old Port Angeles man was charged with third-degree rape of a child Tuesday in connection with a November incident involving a 15-year-old girl. Kevin L. Henrichsen, also known as Kevin Hammond, pleaded not guilty to the charge Tuesday. He is being held on

$25,000 bail in the Clallam County Jail. Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor scheduled a two-day trial to begin April 25.

There’s a reason to use social media A COUPLE OF weeks ago, I went on about, and confessed to more than a bit of trepidation regarding, helping to launch our agency into the nether world of Facebook (“Olympic Area Agency on AgingInformation & Assistance”). Admittedly, my uncharacteristically tentative attitude reflects exactly that: Mark’s attitude, as opposed to whether or not it’s a good idea because, clearly, it is. And it is for a single reason: It works. So, I was forced to confront the obvious question: “What’s my problem?” Well, OK, there’s that, and there’s probably that, too! But I’m talking about my “problem” regarding this whole “social media thing,” and reflection reveals that there may actually be two problems: I am an inherently private person, a clearly unfortunate character defect for someone who writes a weekly newspaper

it is. It turns out that among “older people” (older than column what?) who went online Mark and does last year, the number using a weekly social networks grew twice Harvey radio as fast as the overall rate show, and of Internet use for that I just group; in other words, we didn’t do this. want to And in order to know have to why we do this, we can paste my turn to a growing number life all of “experts” scattered over a hither and yon about the “wall.” And I country who reveal (after careful and detailed study) just didn’t want to have to that we do this because . . . learn another tech “thing”! There’s a reason for it! Hmm . . . Well, it turns I know, but it’s true. out that: Indeed, those of us who I don’t have to, and I are old enough to know didn’t like the sound of better and young enough that, in my own head, not to care get involved in because you know what it social networking — and sounds like? Right. technology, in general — It sounds like what I necause we see a reason to hear all the time about do it. “seniors,” “old people,” “the For example, according elderly,” so I did a little to a 2009 study by AARP, snooping and, of course, what we “hear all the time” about one-third of us who is . . . Well, you know what are 75 or older live alone.


Now, I’ve been saying for years that the two biggest “threats” for elders are “ignorance and isolation,” so here’s a way to fight that isolation — and when you get on top of “isolation,” “ignorance” just tends to diminish, and I don’t care how old you are. True: There are stories all over the country about folks who have rekindled their life by participating in social networks because they’re social — people connect with people! People tell stories and share memories and share jokes and support one another and . . . care about one another. And if technology can help do that, I’m for it. Now, I know that a lot of kids (“kids” who have longsince forgotten the vicissitudes of puberty) are thinking: “Oh, sure! I can’t get Dad (Mom, Grandma, Uncle Albert — whomever) to get anywhere near ‘technology’!”

OK, but maybe that’s because you missed the basic truth (well, after the “truth” that most of this “tech stuff” needs to be reasonably simple, help needs to be reasonably available and provided in understandable language and the hardware has to be reasonably easy to manipulate), which is: There has to be a reason for it. Reasons like: I can see pictures of my grandchildren. I can communicate with my grandchildren. I can communicate with my children (if need be). A reading device, like a Kindle, is a heck of a lot lighter and easier to carry around than eight big books. I can sit in on the transcontinental Thanksgiving dinner via “Skype.” . . . And I can have a life! — and about a gazillion others. Very likely different reasons than those that might

Edwin James Telling, 87, of Port Townsend passed away peacefully at home, as he wished, on February 27, 2011, surrounded by his children. He was born on June 13, 1923, to Charles Robert and Edith (Bath) Telling in Butte, Montana. After losing his father at age 6 and mother at age 8, he moved to Discovery Bay to live with his aunt Jane and cousin Fred Stewart in 1932. Ed graduated from Discovery Bay School in 1939 and Port Townsend High School in 1943. During his senior year of high school, he drove a school bus from Gardiner to Port Townsend. Charlie Olin says he was “the best driver ever.” He worked with his cousin Fred in Fred’s chicken/egg business. They sold eggs to locals and the military who were stationed in the area at the time. He also cut hay with a hand scythe for a

Mr. Telling dollar a day and meals on local farms. Mr. Telling went into the U.S. Army right after graduating from high school in 1943. He was stationed with the 236th Combat Engineers in Burma during the construction of the 1,079-mile Stilwell Road, which was the first overland road between India and China. He left the Army at the end of World War II. After returning from World War II, he lived in the Lake Leland area until moving to Port Townsend in 1974, and resided there

until the time of his passing. He worked as a security guard at Indian Island, guarding the flat-top carriers that had returned after the war. He also worked at Moe’s Sawmill and rafted logs for Stim Brown Mill at Discovery Bay. Ed was a heavy equipment operator for the state Highway Department out of Discovery Bay for over 25 years, until his retirement in 1980. He spent many cold nights plowing snow and sanding roads, taking great pride in keeping the roads safe. Mr. Telling married Florella Gillam on August 3, 1947, in Quilcene. She preceded him in death on May 8, 2006. He enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, playing cards, bingo, cooking and making raspberry wine. He really enjoyed his trips to the local cafes, especially to Bayview in Port Townsend, for “coffee and the latest scuttlebutt.” Mr. Telling was a member of the Port Townsend Elks Lodge since 1963, the Sequim Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Federation of

State, County and Municipal Employees. Dad had an unconditional love of his family. Family gatherings during holidays were very special to him. We were blessed to have him at this last Christmas gathering. We have many fond memories of him and will miss him. He is preceded in death by his wife, Florella; infant son, Robert William, in 1958; brother, Fred Telling, in 1987; and sister, Marie Butler, in 1983. Ed is survived by sons Charles E. Telling and Terry Telling and wife, Cleone; daughter, Cathy M. Turner; six grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren. Memorial services will be held on Sunday, March 13, 2011, at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge, 555 Otto Street, at 1 p.m., with Pastor Wendell Ankeny officiating. A potluck will be held after the services at the Elks Club. Friends and family are invited to join. Memorial donations in Mr. Telling’s memory may be sent to a charity of your choice.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, March 10, 2011




Hearings on Muslims could yield clues IN TIMES SQUARE last Sunday, an estimated 1,000 people gathered to protest the March 10 hearings before Rep. Peter King’s Committee on Homeland Cal Security titled Thomas “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response.” The protesters called the hearings a “witch hunt.” Since there are no “witches” of the type portrayed in “Macbeth” or “The Wizard of Oz,” the term is used to disparage people who believe there are terrorists and potential terrorists hiding among us. Events dating back long before September 11, 2001 prove there are. The witness list isn’t bad, per se, but it is incomplete. It includes Abdirizak Bihi, a Somali immigrant living in Minneapolis who, as director of

the Somali Education and Social Advocacy Center, works with Somali youth to dissuade them from turning radical. Bihi told Richard Meryhew and Allie Shah of the Star Tribune that he committed himself to working with young people after his 18-year-old nephew, Burhan Hassan, was recruited to fight in Somalia and then was “shot in the head after refusing an order.” Burhan was killed, NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston reported in 2009, the very week his family had hoped to “celebrate his graduation.” Another witness is Melvin Bledsoe, father of Carlos Bledsoe (aka Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad). In 2009, Muhammad, a Muslim convert, gunned down two soldiers outside a military recruiting station in Little Rock, Ark. One soldier died. Bledsoe/Muhammad had spent 16 months in Yemen, where he apparently was radicalized before returning to the U.S. to conduct his personal jihad. In a handwritten letter to the presiding judge in his case,

Muhammad, claiming ties to alQaida, said he carried out the attack “because he was mad at the U.S. military because of what they had done to Muslims in the past.” Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota Democrat and one of two Muslim members of Congress, is also a scheduled witness, as is Rep. Frank Wolf, Virginia Republican. Ellison will no doubt warn us against stereotyping all Muslims because of the actions of “a few.” But what if those “few” (and it doesn’t take many to kill, as we have seen) are hiding among peaceful Muslims? Can authorities locate them? What will they do if they find them? Will they continue with “sensitivity training,” hoping that if we are nice to them, they’ll be nicer to us? In these hearings, and in dealing with the radicalization problem in general, do we fully understand that radical Muslims believe their religion allows them to lie to “infidels” and to advance their cause of creating a world Islamic caliphate? Shouldn’t that make us wary of their testimony? People more knowledgeable

Peninsula Voices Ferry workers’ pay The article printed in the March 6 PDN, “Governor, Ferry Workers OK $10M In Reductions,” was infuriating due to its blatant attempt to gloss over the extravagant compensation practices of the state Department of Transportation as it applies to ferry personnel. Susannah Frame of KING-TV shed muchneeded light on this issue. For the governor and the union to portray the proposed labor agreement as anything but the righting of outrageously extravagant pay practices is an insult to the people of Washington. For the record, a ferry deck hand was being paid $60,000 salary and $70,000 travel compensation for going to work. Compensation for travel to work is to be ended. Overtime was doubletime, now to be “reduced” to time-and-a-half.

than those on King’s witness list will not be testifying, though some have been invited to submit written statements. Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum would be one useful expert. So would Steve Emerson, executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism. Ditto historian and Islamic scholar Bernard Lewis, who knows as much about the beliefs and political agenda of radical Islamists as anyone alive. Pipes opposed the hearings because he thinks they won’t go far enough. In an e-mail exchange, he says he is “particularly disturbed by (King’s) privileging of Muslims over non-Muslims, an unexpected act of dhimmitude.” Noting the title of the hearings, Pipes says, “The hearings are on two quite specific topics” which, he says, “are not topics for generalists and amateurs but for witnesses who have either studied them or who have first-hand experience with them.” Even if Pipes, Emerson and Lewis had been invited to testify, what difference would it have

Our readers’ letters, faxes

And, to really ice the cake, fill-in ferry workers will be given a 17 percent pay raise as part of the agreement. If the unions behave as spoiled, selfish children, it is only because there is an indulgent parent enabling the behavior. The governor and DOT management are the indulgent parents, and they must get serious about cleaning up extravagant compensation practices. Given today’s unemployment statistics, it would not be difficult to find replacement workers or management. Glen Irwin, Sequim

Obama ‘laughable’ Why do I get the image of the kid on the cover of Mad magazine years back, that was the epitome of, “What? Me Worry?” when I listen to Obama explain his 2012 budget? This president is

definitely not “looking out for the folks.” How could anybody accept that his biggy, a freeze on current department budgets and salaries, which were increased dramatically from the previously years, is a serious

attempt to control the outof-control-spending his administration has done in the last two years and the Democratic Congress has done in the last four years? Factually, there is no one in charge, certainly not Obama, the former

made? With the White House bending over backward to deny the undeniable — that radicals are among us and new ones are being recruited to kill Americans and harm our economy — what action would government authorities take to root them out, arrest, or deport them? Could politicians stand against cries of “Islamophobia” and “Nazi tactics” that would predictably be hurled at them? In a nation obsessed with Charlie Sheen and celebrity, the media are unlikely to practice the kind of serious investigative journalism necessary to warn the public of another 9/11. Given these undeniable truths, witches don’t look so bad. ________ Cal Thomas is a Fox TV network commentator and syndicated news columnist. His column appears on this page every Thursday.

More than ever, save public broadcasting THE ASPEN GROVE on Kebler Pass in Colorado is one of the largest organisms in the world. Thousands Amy of aspen share the same, inter- Goodman connected root system. Last weekend, I snowmobiled over the pass, 10,000 feet above sea level, between the towns of Paonia and Crested Butte. I was racing through Colorado to help community radio stations raise funds, squeezing in nine benefits in two days. The program director of public radio station KVNF in Paonia dropped us at the trailhead, where the program director of KBUT public radio in Crested Butte and a crew of station DJs picked us up on snowmobiles to whisk us 30 miles over the pass. Now that the Republicans have taken over the House of Representatives, one of their first acts was to “zero out” current funding for the Corporation for

Public Broadcasting (CPB). Furthermore, Rep. Doug Lamborn from Colorado Springs has offered a bill to permanently strip CPB funding. Lamborn told NPR: “We live in a day of 150 cable channels — 99 percent of Americans own a TV, we get Internet on our cell phones, we are in a day and age when we no longer need to subsidize broadcasting.” But public broadcasting was established precisely because of the dangers of the commercial media. When we are discussing war, we need a media not brought to us by weapons manufacturers. When discussing health-care reform, we need a media not sponsored by insurance companies or Big Pharma. In Senate testimony last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fiercely criticized the commercial media, saying: “We are in an information war, and we are losing that war. . . .

real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news.” Clinton was asking for more funding for the overseas propaganda organs of the U.S. government, like Voice of America, Radio Marti and the Arabic-language TV channel that is produced in Virginia for broadcast to the Middle East, Al-Hurra. That arm of the State Department is slated to receive $769 million, almost twice the funding of the CPB. The U.S. military’s media operation has an annual budget exceeding $150 million and distributes entertainment programming to overseas bases, and propagandistic content on its full-time U.S. television platform, The Pentagon Channel. While Clinton’s description of the failed U.S. commercial media is correct, her prescription is all wrong. We need more genuine news and less propaganda. Media-studies professor Robert McChesney echoed that, telling me: “The smart thing to do is

to take most of that $750 million, add it onto what’s being spent currently in the United States, and create a really dynamic, strong, competitive public and community broadcasting system that treats the U.S. government the same way it treats other governments, the same standard of journalism, then broadcast that to the world, make that fully accessible to the world. “And I think that would show the United States at its very best.” In rural Colorado, as in rural regions across the country, and on Native American reservations, public radio stations rely on CPB grants for anywhere from 25 percent to 50 percent of their operating budgets. At the standing-room-only benefit in Paonia, KVNF General Manager Sally Kane explained the crisis: “The Communications Act of 1934 set aside a small spectrum of the airwaves to serve the public interest and to be free of commercial influence. . . .

In the packed town halls, auditoriums and theaters, the passion among the local residents for their stations demonstrates that, like the aspen groves of the Rocky Mountains, these small stations are resilient, strong and deeply rooted in their communities.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, March 10, 2011





Clam closure isn’t a surprise THE PREMATURE END to razor clam season at Kalaloch could hardly be labeled a surprise. As early as January, OlymMatt pic National Park coastal Schubert ecologist Steven Fradkin had voiced concerns about the Olympic National Park beach’s clam populations. And after diggers had little success for the third straight set of digs in late February, an announcement closing razor clam harvesting for the rest of the 2010-11 season wasn’t too far behind. With digs averaging at or below two clams per digger during each of the past five harvest dates (the daily limit is 15), park biologists had seen enough to conclude the population was in decline. Now, the question is why Kalaloch — the most protected of the five beaches that open to razor clam harvests in the state — continues to see its clam cohorts fluctuate so dramatically? The answer is debatable depending upon who you ask, with anything from storm surges to the presence of pathogens to over harvest getting the blame. Fradkin, for one, points to the continued presence of nuclear inclusion X (NIX) — a shellfish disease fatal to razor clams, but not harmful to humans — as a major factor in Kalaloch’s clam volatility. “There is certainly something suggesting that is what its going on,” Fradkin said, “that NIX is an agent as to what’s going on at Kalaloch.”

High infection rate Fradkin has conducted a study of NIX and how it operates within Kalaloch’s environment, particularly in regards to razor clams, since 2008. In that time, between 95 to 100 percent of the razor clam population has been infected with NIX. In July 2010, the last period for which data was available, approximately 95 percent were infected. Those numbers differ quite a bit from the limited amount of historical sampling that had been done concerning NIX in the past, according to Fradkin. “It does not appear that those levels are natural levels,” Fradkin said, “so it appears there is something going on.” Park biologists saw a similar trend in 2006-07, the last time Kalaloch’s razor clam season was cut short because of poor harvest numbers. The annual summer stock assessment done later that year backed up the park’s assertion that the beach’s clams had taken a serious hit. It wasn’t until the fall of 2009 that Kalaloch re-opened to razor clam harvesting, once its populations were deemed healthy enough for harvest.

When will beach reopen? How long it might take for digging to return this time around is anyone’s guess. Fradkin wouldn’t rule out the chance that shovels could pierce Kalaloch’s pristine sands sometime next fall. “I think there’s a really good chance it will open up next year,” Fradkin said. “The few clams that people have been getting are in the four-inch range or something like that, so that cohort we’ve been following for a while is still there.” The biggest decided factor will be the total clam numbers and size distribution. In 2008, for example, Kalaloch had a good number of clams, but because few were of adult size, the beach never opened to digging in the 2008-09 season. If such were the case again this summer, digging would likely be postponed for another year. Turn

Peninsula College men’s basketball players and coaches raise their hands in the air to declare themselves No. 1, and they show off their newly acquired championship trophies after getting off the bus at Peninsula College on Wednesday. Head coach Lance Von Vogt is at the far right. The team traveled the whole day Wednesday from Toyota Center in Kennewick after beating Pierce College 80-76 for the NWAACC crown Tuesday night. A crowd of more than 50 fans greeted the team.

Fister controls Dodgers M’s win 6th spring game The Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Already minus one pitcher, this was not what the Los Angeles Dodgers wanted to see: Starter Jon Garland taking himself out early with pain in his left side. Garland left after one pitch to Josh Wilson with two outs in the second inning and will get examined, another setback for the Dodgers during their 9-4 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday. Mariners starter Doug Fister, meanwhile, had a nice outing, limiting the Dodgers to one run, a homer by Rod Barajas, in four innings. Fister brought a 7.20 ERA into the game after two outings. He said he worked mostly on throwing fastballs for strikes. “I felt like I would be a lot better this time,” he said. “It’s a stepping stone.” “I kept the ball down. I wasn’t focusing on side to side, more down, working the middle of the plate,” he said.

Wedge likes outing Mariners manager Eric Wedge liked it. “I was really happy with the way he threw the ball today,” he said. “He controlled the ballgame, did a good job moving his fastball around. “He had a good tempo, and his secondary stuff was good.” Garland, projected as the Dodgers’ fifth starter, may have injured his oblique, manager Don Mattingly said. “I don’t think he’s willing to

And, he added, oblique injuries generally are “not a twoweek thing, for sure.” Rather, they normally take longer to heal. The Dodgers already are

Dodgers pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo made his spring debut. Last season, the All-Star lefthander posted the best singleseason ERA ever (1.20) for a Dodger pitcher with a minimum of 50 innings. Turn



King quotas will be lower this year State will be trying to protect weak salmon stocks Peninsula Daily News

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Coastal anglers might see more chinook this year, but that won’t translate into a higher catch quota. In fact, anglers can expect just the opposite.

NCAA’s selection committee ready to do the dirty work By Michael Marot The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — NCAA selection committee chairman Gene Smith hopes he’s seen the last of this week’s complications. The Ohio State athletic director is already dealing with a scandal in his own football program and a delayed arrival in Indianapolis. Two committee members are also dealing with what Smith calls “significant” personal issues he didn’t specify and Wednesday’s news conference had technical difficulties. And Smith’s committee hasn’t even gotten to the hard part yet — selecting the first 68-team field in NCAA tournament history. “This committee is very close, very cohesive and we’re supported very well by the NCAA staff,” Smith said. “I’m ready to roll.” This will not be just another typical selection weekend for Smith and the other nine committee members. They’ll spend the next five days holed up in an Indianapolis hotel trying to find the 37 best at-large teams — three more than previous years — and then seed all 68 properly. Nobody’s perfect, and it’s never easy, but this year’s selection process could be more challenging and face more scrutiny. Why? The new format has cre-

“Really, there’s 5,000 games played throughout the season. You might be able to have an impact in your first tourney game, maybe your second game. The reality is that most teams that will be advantaged by the tournament are those who come through and win it.”

Gene Smith Selection committee chairman

ated some different debates to the regular mix of who is in and who is out. Some believe the Big East should get a record 11 bids, raising concerns about whether the expanded field has simply become a way to get more teams from the six power conferences into the field. Plus, Smith’s committee will likely face criticism about which teams play in next week’s four openinground games in Dayton, Ohio. Two games will feature the bottom four seeds in the tourney while the other two will feature the last four atlarge teams. The NCAA has dubbed this group the First Four, though those eight teams probably will not feel the same way. Smith has already prepared some answers. “We will go through one through 68 and we’re very confident that the 35th, 36th, 37th slots that the atlarge teams going to Dayton will be excited to go,” he said. “Every single year we

evaluate what we did the previous year. Anything that we feel we need to modify based on that experience we’ll modify.” Smith is getting pretty good at adapting on the fly. On Tuesday night, he attended a hastily called news conference to announce Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel had been suspended for two games and fined $250,000 for violating NCAA rules. Tressel, school officials said, waited more than nine months before notifying school compliance officials about his players’ involvement in selling signed memorabilia in exchange for money and tattoos. After that news conference, Smith drove from Columbus, Ohio, to Indy for the selection marathon. Then, Wednesday morning, while Smith was making his opening statement to reporters, things went awry. “We’re excited to select the 37 at-large teams coupled with the 31 automatic qualifiers,” he said, before the phone line went dead.

Two or three minutes later, Smith was back explaining what had happened and what he would and would not discuss. “Sorry we had some technical difficulties, we had to move to a different room,” he said. “I know there may be people out there who may want to ask questions about the Ohio State University case. “Please, I ask that you be respectful. I’m here today as chair of the men’s basketball committee. Those questions are reserved for later days.” Bear in mind, too, that the Buckeyes men’s basketball team is currently ranked No. 1 and could wind up the tourney’s top overall seed. Smith will need to leave the room when Ohio State is discussed, per committee rules. But even without that, it will be complicated enough trying to sift through all the data and this week’s conference tournaments to devise a 68-team bracket everyone likes. “Really, there’s 5,000 games played throughout the season,” he said. “You might be able to have an impact in your first tourney game, maybe your second game. “The reality is that most teams that will be advantaged by the tournament are those who come through and win it.”

LOS ANGELES — Cassie Harberts scored a career-high 31 points and added 14 rebounds as Southern California beat Washington State 78-66 Wednesday in the first round of the Pac-10 tournament. Harberts was 10 of 16 from the floor and 11 of 13 from the free-throw line as she easily bested her previous high of 18 points. Jacki Gemelos added 13 points and nine rebounds to help the fifth-seeded Trojans (19-11) advance to

Thursday’s quarterfinals, where they will face No. 4 Arizona. Jazmine Perkins had 17 points and Sage Romberg added 15 for Washington State (8-23), which dropped its sixth straight game to close out the season. Harberts had 18 points in the first half, after which the Trojans led 35-29. USC got some separation late in the half courtesy of a 15-2 run that included 11 straight points. Harberts had six points during the spurt, capped by her layup that made it 33-19.

Toyota eyes annual sales of 10 million vehicles By Yuri Kageyama

The Associated Press

TOKYO — Toyota Motor Corp. is aiming for an auto industry first by reaching annual sales of 10 million vehicles by 2015 even as it acknowledges that overly rapid growth was at the root of its recall fiasco. Toyota President Akio Toyoda gave the 10 million figure Wednesday while outlining the company’s “global vision” in his first major strategy announcement since the recall crisis that hit a year and a half ago. The Japanese automaker reported worldwide sales of 8.42 million vehicles last year — 30,000 more than General Motors Co.’s 8.39 million. Toyota dethroned GM as the world’s No. 1 automaker by vehicle sales in 2008 — a position GM held for 76 years. Speaking at a Tokyo hotel, Toyoda said the car maker wants to make millions of customers happy, and even denied he was giving a numerical sales target. He repeatedly emphasized goals like quality controls, customer satisfaction and solid profits. Toyota, which makes the Prius hybrid and Lexus luxury models, hopes to achieve an annual operating profit of 1 trillion yen ($12 billion) “as soon as possible,” even if the yen remains strong and vehicle sales drop by 20 percent, Toyoda said. The company is forecasting operating profit of 550 billion yen ($6.6 billion) for the fiscal year ending March 31. Toyoda said the vision was based on what the car maker had learned from its quality problems and the

The Associated Press

Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda speaks during a press conference in Tokyo on Wednesday. sales hammering from the global financial crisis of 2009. Since late 2009, Toyota has announced recall after recall, covering a wide range of defects, including faulty floor mats, sticky gas pedals and glitches in braking software, ballooning to more than 14 million vehicles globally. The company paid the U.S. government a record $48.8 million in fines for its handling of three recalls. Toyota faces dozens of lawsuits from owners in the U.S., including fatalities allegedly linked to defects. Last month, U.S. regulators closed their 10-month investigation, clearing Toyota of electronic flaws, and finding mechanical problems covered by the recalls took care of the unintended acceleration cases. The company has said quality problems emerged as it went through a period of rapid growth. Toyoda said the automak-

er’s board of directors will be reduced to 11 from 27, but the number of executives overseas will be boosted to 15 from 13, to make for quicker decision-making and to be more responsive to regional needs. In an unusual personnel move, Toyoda’s predecessor Katsuaki Watanabe — seen as a key figure in the go-go growth that predated the quality lapses — will resign from the board of directors as part of the management streamlining. The resignation will be effective after a shareholders’ meeting set for June. Past presidents have stayed on longer, and Watanabe’s predecessor Fujio Cho remains on the board. Toyota will also empower its regions, including North America, which will center around development and production of the Camry sedan, to better cater to their needs, he said. That appeared to answer

to criticism about how Toyota had been initially slow in responding to the quality problems, worsening the image damage that followed.

‘Green vehicles’ The automaker will also focus more on emerging markets for new growth, aiming for 50 percent of its sales from those nations, up from the current 40 percent. It said “green vehicles” are another pillar for the future, planning to launch 10 more hybrid models by 2015. Toyota announced two new, bigger versions of its hit Prius hybrid — station wagons that are set to go on sale in Japan next month. The five-seater version will also go on sale in North America later this year. The seven-seater, packed with a new lithium-ion battery, will go on sale in Europe as well next year. Prices and mileage haven’t been announced yet.

Exxon CEO says oil prices not hurting economy — yet By Chris Kahn

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson said Wednesday he doesn’t think the recent jump in oil prices is hurting the U.S. economy — yet. At the same time, he acknowledged that gasoline prices are approaching an uncomf o r t a b l e Tillerson threshold for American families.

Oil is about $104 per barrel, and the national average for gasoline is now $3.52 per gallon. Drivers on the West Coast are paying close to $4. And the price is expected to rise through spring and into summer. Tillerson told reporters at the New York Stock Exchange that in 2008 American families appeared to change their driving and spending habits when gasoline hit $4 per gallon that June. Gas peaked at $4.11 in July that year as oil climbed to $147 per barrel.

Tillerson said $4 gas “creates some real challenges” for average American families and their household budgets. When gasoline rises above $4 per gallon, it’s a “significant emotional event for a lot of people,” he said. “Even if you’re paying $50 a month [for gas], $50 a month is significant for the way they have to manage their income.” Tillerson remembered that in 2008, Americans switched to taking the bus or joining community carpools to save on gas costs. The head of the world’s

largest publicly traded oil company pinned a recent 24 percent jump in oil prices on fears of production losses from North Africa and the Middle East. Output in Libya, a member of OPEC, has dropped significantly as rebels battle the government of Moammar Gadhafi for control of the country. Earlier, Tillerson told Wall Street analysts that Exxon would spend $34 billion this year — nearly $100 million per day — on capital investments that are mostly devoted to oil and natural gas production.

Mysterious flying object spotted over Vancouver revealed as kite The Associated Press

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Shed a tear, UFO buffs. The curtain has been pulled away from that mysterious flying object seen in the Vancouver area last month. Several residents reported seeing something high in the air, only after dark, something that danced strangely back and

forth and emitted vivid blasts of flowing colors, sort of like large fireworks displays or some huge electrified, airborne chameleon. Some said the object resembled a flying saucer. It generated a media buzz across the country. But now the UFO has been identified — a magnificent Chinese-made kite, made of parachute fabric in a triangle shape, standing

7½ feet tall with a wingspan of 13 feet. The lights are hundreds of LEDs of every bright color imaginable, powered by an onboard rechargeable lithium ion battery and a small onboard computer that sequences many flashing light patterns. The kite’s owner and operator — a guy named Mike (he asked that his last name not be published for

privacy) — demonstrated the kite this week to reporters from The Columbian newspaper. He said he called 9-1-1 first, in case dispatchers received more calls about a UFO. “We haven’t been hiding anything” or trying to start a UFO hoax, said Mike. “I just enjoy flying the kite.”

 $ Briefly . . . Governor gets bill on Canadian tax OLYMPIA — The state House has approved a state Senate bill to clarify a current retail sales tax exemption, making sure that Canadian visitors pay sales tax when they visit Washington state. The bill now goes to Gov. Chris Gregoire to sign into law, or veto. The measure, sponsored by Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-San Juan Islands, is intended to maintain revenue for retailers in Bellingham and other border communities, where up to 10 percent of sales tax collected comes from Canadian visitors. Currently, Washington gives exemptions to visitors from states or provinces with no comparable retail sales tax. But last year, British Columbia adopted a new tax to replace their provincial sales taxes, following the lead of other provinces. The Washington Department of Revenue had ruled that the new tax met existing exemptions. But cities like Bellingham disagreed. Ranker’s bill changes law to overrule the Department of Revenue. The bill says that if a province has a sales tax, value-added tax or similar tax of 3 percent or more, the exemption does not apply.

Peninsula College Recorder Ensemble slated for Tuesday Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — St. Luke’s Episcopal Church’s Music Live With Lunch Series will present the Peninsula College Recorder Ensemble at noon Tuesday. This group, which has been in existence for about 25 years, was started by Dennis Crabb, recorder specialist and head of the Peninsula College music department. Instruments included are many different sizes of recorders from sopranino to bass recorder, as well as viola da gamba players and a guitarist. They will be performing music by Claudio Monteverdi, William Byrd, Michael Praetorius and other early music composers. Music Live With Lunch is a concert series held the third Tuesday of each month from September through May,

omitting December. It consists of a half-hour concert in the church followed by a hot lunch in the Parish Hall. Both a vegetarian and a meat lunch are offered. Lunch is served at 12:30 p.m. Admission, which includes both the concert and the lunch, is $10. Tickets may be purchased at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave., Sequim. The church is generally open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to noon Fridays. Phone the church at 360683-4862 before coming for tickets.

Natural History Exhibit at Fort Worden State Park at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The documentary attempts to answer “What was it like to grow up on the Olympic Peninsula, a place that had so many fish the usual joke was that you could walk across the river on the backs of the fish?”

It also touches on what has been lost and what should be done about restoring it. “Voices of the Strait” attempts to answer these questions by talking to a wide variety of people, from mill workers to fishermen to tribal members. The event is sponsored by the Olympic chapter of

Dear Abby: I obtained a recipe upon the death of an aunt who wouldn’t share it until she passed away. I did not think she was selfish. I fondly remember her serving these cookies the few times a year we saw her. I bake them for special occasions — holidays, birthdays, graduations, etc. — and mail them to family and friends out of state. The treats are special, and everyone looks forward to receiving them. If everyone had the recipe, it would lose its distinction. When I am no longer able to bake them, I will happily pass the recipe on to a relative to continue the tradition. Beth in Pennsylvania

PAX tires make for bumpy ride Dear Doctor: I dislike the run-flat PAX tires on my Honda. The ride is very bumpy, and I’ve even heard from other people that they wear poorly, repairs are costly and that each tire weighs 100 pounds. If I buy new Honda rims and tires, would I get a better ride and mileage? Should I opt for 16-inch or 17-inch rims and tires? Nick Dear Nick: Great question. I, too, really dislike PAX tires. Yes, you can upgrade to conventional tires and wheels, which is something we do all the time. I would go for the 16-inch to increase ride quality. The 17-inch would be less forgiving over bumps. I recommend you research for the tire and wheel combination. Remember, if your van has a TPS system, you will need to buy a set of monitors as well. You will also need a spare tire and rims, plus a jack and lug wrench. You do not necessarily have to buy factory Honda rims.



Window trouble

Dear Doctor: The battery went dead on my 1998 Cadillac Seville. My local shop installed a new battery ($275) that they said is better than the original GM battery. When I got home, I tried to lower my driver window, but it did not work. I tried the other windows, and they were dead. I went back to the mechanic and was told it needed a new computer for the driver’s door and because it’s a new computer, it wouldn’t be compatible with the other door computers, and I would need to do all the doors. What is your opinion? Jim Dear Jim: When a battery goes dead in some late vehicles, such as your

1998 Cadillac, it can cause multiple electronic problems, including a loss of computer and modules that run the electronics. Both Alldata and Identifix have troubleshooting procedures. The use of a professional scan tool will be needed in order to check the system for fault codes. I find it hard to believe that there is a problem with the other three window motors and/or modules. A broken wire and/or faulty window switch are most likely the problem.

Lousy reception Dear Doctor: I have contacted a class-action attorney because my 2005 Prius radio gets lousy reception. Evidently, Toyota knew they had a problem because it has been corrected in later models. I live in a rural area where the residents travel long distances. I believe I have a safety issue should an emergency occur where notification is via the radio. Do you have any infor-

mation on this subject? Shelley Dear Shelley: Identifix lists a Technical Service Bulletin on this problem. Apparently, there is a noise filter in the antenna cable that can cause reception issues. The TSB states to replace the antenna cable, as well as the mast if needed. I personally have not seen this problem on the Toyota Prius, although I’ve heard poor quality AM reception on a variety of vehicles. Some vehicles have better reception than others. Go back to the dealer and ask them to look into the Toyota TSB on your problem radio. This could save you a lot of stress.
