State Senate passes budget Extra session cost taxpayers $10,000 a day By Manuel Valdes

OLYMPIA — The Washington State Legislature has adjourned after completing a new state budget that fills a projected shortfall of $5 billion. Lawmakers finalized their spending plans and a long list of lingering bills Wednesday, adjourning less than two hours before a midnight deadline for the 30-day special session. They passed a new state budget to Gov. Chris Gregoire that makes spending reductions of $4.6 billion and includes widespread cuts to education. Leaders in the Legislature said the spending cuts were painful but necessary in the midst of the economic downturn. Gregoire had called lawmakers back to work for a month after they failed to finish the budget and key spending matters by the end of their regular 105-day session.

Several bills pass at end of session Several bills passed in the final hours of the session, including one moving Washington closer to privatizing liquor, another that puts limits on the state’s debt and a contentious plan allowing outsourcing of some government services. “It’s been a lot of work for 30 days,” said House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, D-Covington. The extra time cost taxpayers about $10,000 a day due to $90 daily stipends for lawmakers. Final discussions Wednesday night included one last moment of tension that threatened to stall adjournment. A large group of Democrats objected to a bill that consolidated services under one agency, complaining that a provision allowing the state to outsource certain services unfairly prevented state employees from competing for the work. That measure relied heavily on votes from Republicans to pass the House. Senate Republicans had said they wouldn’t pass the state’s new general budget without the bill. Turn

Port Townsend High School students Sam Gordon and Rinnah Becker will play with the Seattle Symphony at its June 17 appearance at Fort Worden State Park.

Seattle Symphony to perform in PT Students to play as guest musicians T

By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Seattle Symphony’s upcoming Port Townsend appearance will be a very special occasion, said Centrum’s Executive Director John MacElwee, and will be made more so by its use of two Port Townsend High School students as guest musicians. Cellist Sam Gordon, an 18-year-old senior, and violinist Rinnah Becker, a 15-year-old sophomore, will sit in with the symphony during its Friday, June 17, performance of Antonin Dvorak’s “New World Symphony.” The performance will be at 7 p.m. in McCurdy Pavilion at Fort Worden State Park. The Seattle Symphony’s performance will be preceded by a free preview of the evening’s program at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 16, in Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden, when Centrum artistic director Lucinda Carver will play some of the selections both live and recorded and provide background on the pieces. Aside from the local connection, the symphony’s performance is special in several ways, MacElwee said. “This is a huge event, and we are very lucky this is happening,” he said.

Having the symphony, which MacElwee termed one of the most versatile large orchestras in the nation, play Port Townsend is itself a treat and has not happened in nearly 10 years. The performance also is the second-tolast appearance of the Seattle Symphony’s music director, Gerard Schwarz, who is retiring from the position he has held since 1985.

Recommended by teacher The two aspiring student musicians who will play with the symphony were recommended by Port Townsend High School music teacher Barbara Henry. “I don’t think we are actually better than a lot of the other kids in the orchestra,” Gordon said. “I think we were chosen because we could benefit the most.” Said Henry: “That’s a really nice way to put it. “It was not an easy choice, but these two are very dedicated.” Henry said the students will get gold medals to commemorate their performing with the symphony. They also get bragging rights. “In the future, we can say we performed with the Seattle Symphony,

although that’s less impressive when you add the right context,” Gordon said. Gordon and Becker are excited about the opportunity, though Gordon called it “terrifying.” They won’t get to actually rehearse with the orchestra and only had a short session earlier this month, though with a different conductor. “With each conductor, things change, so we really don’t know what to expect,” Gordon said. The two have practiced the music for 20 hours and will show up before their performance with their instruments ready. Turn




Filing deadline for election approaches By Charlie Bermant Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — As the filing deadline approaches for this year’s election, there are few announced candidates — the most recent possibility being Paul Richmond, who said he probably will run for Port Townsend City Council — and no contested races. But that is likely to change. “Many candidates wait until the very last minute to file,” said Jefferson County Election Coordi-

nator Karen Cartmel. With four seats on the Port Townsend City Council, three on the Port Townsend School Board and one Port of Port Townsend commissioner seat open, only one person — City Councilman David King — has said he is a candidate. Two other council members, Kris Nelson and Deputy Mayor George Randels, have said they are leaning toward running again, while Councilwoman Laurie Medlicott said in April that she would not seek a third term.

On Tuesday, Richmond, a Port Townsend attorney who lost his bid to become Jefferson County’s prosecuting attorney in 2010, said he would most Richmond likely file his candidacy for Medlicott’s seat. “I am probably going to file,” he said. “I will do well on the council because I know the law, and I am

very knowledgeable about financial matters.” Contested races for the City Council are the exception rather than the rule, with only one candidate for each council seat running in 2009 and one of four races contested in 2007. If the current field holds and King, Randels, Nelson and Richmond file for the office, then all four would serve on the next council unless a write-in candidate received more votes.

The candidate filing period will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day from June 6 to 10 at the Auditor’s Office in the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend. Jefferson County Commissioner David Sullivan, who is up for re-election in 2012, said candidates should announce their intention to run or retire as soon as possible to give others a chance to run for the seat.

Panel denies Hanks’ claim in home bid AN ARBITRATION PANEL has rejected a bid by actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, for financial compensation stemming from a long-running dispute with the contractor hired to build the couple’s multimillion-dollar villa in Sun Valley, Idaho. The three-member panel of the American Arbitration Association has concluded the couple failed to make a compelling case that alleged defects in their $10 million home should be pinned on Storey Construction, based in Ketchum, Idaho. Hanks and Wilson sought $3 million in damages from the builder. They claimed the home north of the ritzy resort town was built with a series of flaws, including a roof that leaked and nearly collapsed after the house was finished in 2002. The arbitration panel also sided with Hanks and Wilson in a counterclaim filed by the contractor who alleged the couple pursued the damages out of malice, the Idaho Mountain Express reported Wednesday.

1936 (75 years ago) The new state highway bridge over the Quilcene River and the road up Mount Walker were dedicated by state officials and prominent citizens in the presence of several thousand people. A total of 1,028 automobiles were driven to the Sunday ceremony, which featured Washington Secretary of State Ernest N. Hutchinson, state Highways Director Lacey V. Murrow, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Noah D. Showalter, and Capts. Alexander Peabody and J. Howard Payne of the two cross-Puget Sound ferry companies. The quiet town of Quilcene was astonished and delighted by the wholesale response to its invitation to partake in the dedication of the new Olympic Highway bridge and mountain road.

1961 (50 years ago) The feasibility of consolidating Port Angeles jail facilities came to the fore again when city and Clallam County officials met at the invitation of the county commissioners. Sheriff Robert I. Polhamus said the county is badly in need of better jail facilities, and Judge Max Church described the need

as “the blackest disgrace in the United States.” City Manager M.W. Slankard and Mayor James E. Maxfield said Police Chief Harry Kochanek’s cost estimate of modifying the city jail for citycounty use was “optimistic.” Kochanek estimated the cost at $20,000; Slankard and Maxfield felt it would be more like $60,000.

Briefly: Nation Alleged gunman incompetent for trial, judge says TUCSON, Ariz. — The man accused of wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing six in a shooting rampage in Arizona is mentally incompetent to stand trial, a judge ruled Wednesday after two deputy U.S. marshals dragged the man out of the courtroom because of an angry outburst. As survivors of the deadly January attack looked on, Jared Lee Loughner lowered his head, raised it and said what Loughner sounded like “Thank you for the freak show. She died in front of me.” His words were loud but indistinct, and it wasn’t clear who he was talking about. U.S. District Judge Larry Burns’ decision means the 22-year-old will be sent to back to a federal facility in Missouri for up to four months. Doctors will try to medicate him to see if they can restore his competency to a point where he understands the case against him.

familiar with the case said Wednesday. An indictment could come within days unless Edwards reaches an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to a negotiated charge, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the case’s sensitivity. Authorities have been investigating the former North Carolina senator’s campaign finances, focusing heavily on money from wealthy supporters that allegedly went to keep his mistress, Rielle Hunter, and her out-ofwedlock baby in hiding in 2007 and 2008 to protect Edwards’ White House campaign.

2 Somalis plead guilty

NORFOLK, Va. — Another pair of Somali men pleaded guilty to piracy Wednesday for their roles in the hijacking of a yacht off Africa that left four Americans — two from Seattle — dead, with one of the pirates saying he tried to immobilize one of the gunmen once the shooting started aboard the boat. Ahmed Sala Ali Burale, 22, and Muhidin Salad Omar, 30, pleaded guilty in federal court as part of an agreement that could result in them serving less than life in prison, the mandatory sentence.

Briefly: World Egypt to open border crossing for Palestinians CAIRO — Egypt’s decision Wednesday to end its blockade of Gaza by opening the only crossing to the Hamas-ruled Palestinian territory this weekend could ease the isolation of 1.4 million Palestinians there. It also puts the new Egyptian regime at odds with Israel, which insists on careful monitoring of people and goods entering Gaza for security reasons. The Rafah crossing will be open permanently starting Saturday, Egypt’s official Middle East News Agency announced. That would provide Gaza Palestinians their first open border to the world in four years, since Egypt and Israel slammed their crossings shut after the Islamic militant Hamas overran the Gaza Strip in 2007. During the closure, Egypt sometimes opened its border to allow Palestinians through for special reasons such as education or medical treatment. But with Israel severely restricting movement of Palestinians through its Erez crossing in northern Gaza, residents there were virtual prisoners.

Bin Laden cross hairs BERLIN — The United States has told Germany that evidence pulled from Osama bin Laden’s hideout shows the terror chief was linked to a plot to attack targets in Europe last year, a senior German official

told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Two U.S. officials also told the AP that bin Laden had advised Europe-based militants to attack in unspecified mainland European countries just before Christmas. The officials offered no details. Separately, bin Laden encouraged multiple attacks on Danish targets because of disparaging references to the Muslim prophet Mohammed in Danish media, the U.S. officials said. European security officials said earlier this month that they’d seen very little of the information from the May 2 raid on bin Laden’s hideout, but the Americans have begun sharing more information with intelligence agencies in Europe.

Forecasts, TV, luck ease tornado risk More severe storms sweep through midsection of U.S. By Chuck Bartels and Kristi Eaton The Associated Press

PIEDMONT, Okla. — When three tornadoes marched toward Oklahoma City and its suburbs, thousands of people in the path benefited from good forecasts, luck and live television to avoid the kind of catastrophe that befell Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Joplin, Mo. Although at least 15 people died in the latest round of violent weather that started Tuesday, schools and offices closed early, giving many families plenty of time to take shelter. And even stragglers were able to get to safety at the last minute because TV forecasters narrated the twisters’ every turn. The people of Oklahoma City, which has been struck by more tornadoes than any other U.S. city, knew the storms were coming.

Anxiety was perhaps higher than usual Tuesday after last month’s twister outbreak in the South that killed more than 300 people and a Sunday storm that killed at least 125 in Joplin, Mo. The Oklahoma twisters proved to be weaker than the other tornadoes.

Updates help thousands But the minute-by-minute accounts of the developing weather helped thousands of people stay abreast of the danger. Television helicopters broadcast live footage while the system approached the metropolitan area of 1.2 million people — calling out to specific communities like Piedmont to “Take cover now!” Another line of severe storms swept through the nation’s midsection Wednesday, mainly east of Oklahoma.

A tornado warning was briefly issued for downtown Kansas City, Mo., and at least two weak tornadoes touched down in or near the suburbs. A few others were reported in Illinois. The storms moved later into Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. In Joplin, the city manager said Wednesday that 125 people had died in the storm, raising by three the toll of the nation’s deadliest single tornado since 1950. He said more than 900 people had been injured. Rescue and recovery work continued, with crews repeating grid searches for any survivors who might still be buried in rubble. Structural engineers were sent inside the ruins of St. John’s Medical Center, which was crippled by the twister, to see if the hospital could be saved. Back in the Oklahoma City area, at least nine people were killed, despite broadcasters offering live coverage of the storms for two hours before the bad weather actually hit around the evening rush hour.

Winfrey devotes final show to her connection with fans

Sudanese, rebels clash

By Caryn Rousseau

BENGHAZI, Libya — Libyan rebels clashed Wednesday with Sudanese mercenaries fighting for Moammar Gadhafi near the border with Sudan, as President Barack Obama predicted the Libyan leader would be forced to step down if NATO keeps up its military campaign with the U.S. playing a key role. Speaking at a news conference in London, Obama said the U.S.-led NATO coalition was engaged in “a slow, steady process in which we’re able to wear down the regime forces.” “There will not be a letup in the pressure we are applying” on Gadhafi, Obama said. “I believe that we have built enough momentum that as long as we sustain the course we’re on, he will step down.” The Associated Press

CHICAGO — There were no free cars or vacations. No favorite things or makeovers. No celebrity guests on stage — though there were plenty in the audience. The finale of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, taped Tuesday and aired Wednesday, was all about the one thing that made her a billion-dollar success: the unique connection she made with millions of viewers for 25 years. In what she called her “love letter” to fans, she made clear that to her, all those TV friendships went both ways. “Something in me connected with each of you in a way that allowed me to see myself in you and you in me,” Winfrey said. “I listened and grew, and I know you

grew along with me.” Winfrey was the only person on stage with little background music and short flashback clips. The show went to Winfrey commercials with “Twenty-Five Years,” a soft song that musician Paul Simon wrote and recorded for her. She called fans her “safe harbor” and became teary-eyed when reflecting on her upbringing in rural Mississippi. “It is no coincidence that a lonely little girl,” Winfrey said, choking up, “who felt not a lot of love, even though my parents and grandparents did the best they could, it is no coincidence that I grew up to feel a genuine kindness, affection, trust and valida-

tion from millions of you all over the world.” Winfrey told viewers that sometimes she was a teacher, but more often, her viewers instructed her. She called Wednesday’s episode her “last class from this stage.” At one point, she thanked viewers for sharing her “yellow brick road of blessings” — something she said back in November 2009, when she announced that she would end her show. The program gave rise to a media empire, including a magazine and Winfrey’s own cable network, which she launched in January. Wednesday’s show was the last piece of a months-long sendoff, but as the hour wrapped up, Winfrey stopped short of saying farewell. “I won’t say goodbye. I’ll just say, until we meet again,” she said.

NEARLY NINE YEARS after she was abducted at knifepoint from her bed, Elizabeth Smart watched Wednesday as a federal judge ordered a street preacher to spend the rest of his life in prison for kidnapping and raping her while holding her captive for months. The sentencing of Brian David Mitchell closed a legal chapter in the ordeal that stalled for years after Mitchell was declared mentally ill and unfit to stand trial. U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball handed down two life sentences for Mitchell at the hearing in Salt Lake City. A jury unanimously convicted Mitchell in December of kidnapping and unlawful transportation of a minor across state lines for sex.

Mark Kerrigan, 46, was convicted, though, of a misdemeanor assault and battery charge in a January 2010 altercation with Daniel Kerrigan at the family’s home in Stoneham, Mass., just north of Boston. Nancy Kerrigan and her mother, Brenda, embraced and cried after the verdict was read. The skater attended every day of the nine-day trial.

FORMER INTERNATIONAL MONETARY Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been moved to a new, more permanent location in New York City while awaiting trial in his attempted rape case. Dominique Strauss-Kahn was seen smiling Wednesday as he got into a gray sport utility vehicle outside a building in lower Manhattan. He was flanked by several plainclothes officers. Strauss-Kahn is free on $1 million bail. The one-time French presidential contender was jailed for about a week in New York City after he was arrested May 14. A hotel maid says he sexually assaulted her in his hotel room.

A NEW ZEALAND truck driver said he blew up like a balloon when he fell onto the fitting of a compressed-air hose that pierced his buttock and forced air into his body at 100 pounds a square inch. Steven McCormack was standing on his truck’s foot plate Saturday when he slipped and fell, breaking a compressed-air hose off an air reservoir that powered the truck’s brakes. He fell hard onto the brass fitting, which pierced his left buttock and started pumping air into his body. “I was blowing up like a football,” he said. “I had no choice but just to lay there, blowing up like a balloon.”

Budget: A lot

of compromise Continued from A1 Sullivan said the session involved a lot of compromises from all sides. “When you look at what our priorities were, I think we prevailed in a number of areas, and they prevailed in some areas,” Sullivan said. After gaining seats in last year’s election, Senate Republicans also gained a voice in their chamber. They managed to force some of their priorities into law, such as limits on the state debt and an overhaul of the state’s workers’ compensation system. Republican Sen. Joe Zarelli, one of the budget negotiators, said the state’s operating budget was truly a bipartisan one. He thought the GOP input helped prevent lawmakers from passing a spending plan that relied on financial gimmicks to deal with the shortfall.

“We didn’t kick things down the road,” Zarelli said. With tax increases essentially off the table due to a voter-approved initiative last year, the $32 billion state budget plan relies on some $4.6 billion in cutbacks. Roughly half those reductions came in education, including a 1.9 percent decrease in pay for teachers and a 3 percent cut in pay for other kindergartenthrough-12th-grade employees. State employees face a 3 percent reduction through unpaid leave. Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, said lawmakers made the best choices they could with the resources they had available. “It is a painful budget,” Murray said. “It is probably the most painful budget any of us have had to write or vote on in our careers.”

Bill keeps immigrant children in health plan By Manuel Valdes The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — The state Legislature on Wednesday approved an increase in premiums for some illegal immigrant children enrolled in the state’s health care program for poor children. In a session full of budget cuts, children’s health advocates welcomed the measure. “It took a monumental effort to protect the health of our state’s children,” said Children’s Alliance Deputy Director Jon Gould. “In the end, families, advocates and supportive legislators succeeded in blocking attempts to limit enrollment or deny coverage to children.” Earlier this year, Gov. Chris Gregoire proposed cutting the 26,000 illegal


immigrant children enrolled in the program, called Apple Health for Kids. An earlier Senate plan would have reduced enrollment as well. About 725,000 total children — citizens, residents and illegal immigrants — are covered, according to the Department of Social and Health Services. Under the approved proposal, families with illegal immigrant children and incomes above 200 percent of the federal poverty line will pay higher premiums. For example, a family of three that makes more than $37,000 a year would pay more, according to the Children’s Alliance. The measure raises the monthly premiums for those families from

between $20 and $30 to between $80 and $90. The bill passed unanimously in the Senate on Wednesday. Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, said that by maintaining the program, the state protects the “most vulnerable.” Hobbs, a member of a moderate-conservative group in the Senate, was integral in forging this bill, along with House negotiators who held steady to not cutting children out of health care, Gould said. It took negotiations to move away from cutting enrollment to the program.

Gould said the group will now seek sponsors for families who can’t afford the hike in premiums. “No child should go without the health care they need,” Gould said. The advocacy group also said the state could earn about $80 million in federal grants now that all enrollments will be left nearly untouched. The DSHS, which manages the program, confirmed the group’s report. The money would also have no strings attached, meaning lawmakers could spend it any way they want.

Immediately after the show, the orchestra will pile back on the bus bound for the Bainbridge-Seattle ferry.

McCurdy Pavilion holds about 1,000 people, though a few more seats can be added. The stage is of variable size and is composed of 4-foot-by-8-foot platforms that can be added or removed to suit different uses. For the symphony, the stage will be configured in its maximum 40-foot-by-56foot size, removing the curtain that bisects the stage when it accommodates

smaller musical groups. Tickets range from $35 to $75, with the most expensive seats in the middle where the acoustics are the best, MacElwee said. About half the tickets had been sold by Wednesday, “which is about where we expected to be,” he said. Even with a sellout, the event won’t turn a profit for anybody, MacElwee said.

Election: Holding office is a ‘full-time commitment’ Continued from A1 which waiting until the last minute is standard practice. At least one person mullBut running for county commissioner differs from ing running for office said an election for City Council he is waiting to announce and the school board, for because candidates must


file financial disclosure forms within two weeks of the announcement, and the form differs as to how much the candidate intends to spend.

If there are still no candidates, the reconvened board can appoint a replacement for the vacant seat. Even so, observers expect at least one candidate to file for each open seat for the fall’s City Council, school board and port contests. “Sometimes, there are offices where no one files, but that has never happened with a City Council race,” Cartmel said. “I’ve been here 10 years and have never seen an election when nobody runs,” said Roseanne Butler, secretary to Port Townsend Schools Superintendent Gene Laes. Butler said “several people have called asking for details about running” in the past few weeks.

deciding which financial form to file, said Medlicott, adding that people have begged off running for Medlicott o f f i c e because of the loss of privacy suffered by public officials. “I’ve asked a lot of people to run, and they have declined,” she said. “It’s a full-time commitment, and you don’t know how much work it requires until you are in the job.” School board members and port commissioners are assigned specific districts, so a candidate must live within certain boundaries in order to run for his seat. Anyone seeking to run for the school board seat being vacated by Beth Young must live in the district she represents. The City Council has a different process. All the seats are at large. This has led to what Cartmel said is common in Port Townsend, where candidates decide which position they will seek based on who they are running against. There is no limit on how many times candidates can switch their preference as long as they pay the $60 filing fee each time.

Hood Canal Bridge traffic test begins Drivers can move freely from 3-6 p.m.

Traffic cameras SHINE — The state Department of Transportation turned on nine additional traffic cameras near Hood Canal Bridge on Tuesday. The images can be seen at traffic/hoodcanal. Transportation said the cameras will help motorists see backups associated with bridge openings. The cameras are located on state Highway 3 at Equestrian Drive, Pioneer Hill Road, Pioneer Way, Big Valley Road, both sides of Sunset Way and on state Highway 104 at Old Stark Road. A new signal at state Highway 104 and Wheeler Street will go online soon, the department said. Peninsula Daily News

SHINE — A pilot project restricting Hood Canal Bridge openings for pleasure boats will begin Friday. The bridge won’t open for any vessel not part of the U.S. Navy between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. daily from Friday through Sept. 30. The Coast Guard test program is intended to provide reliability to those traveling over the bridge, which connects Jefferson and Kitsap counties, giving residents some assurance they can freely come and go between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. About half the vessels that prompt openings of the bridge — thus closing it to vehicular traffic — are Navy vessels, including submarines from Naval Base Kitsap in Bangor. Navy vessels aren’t included in the pilot program and will continue to prompt bridge openings as needed. If at least one hour’s notice is given, the bridge opens for boats that are too large or tall to pass under its trusses.

It can take more than a half-hour to open and close the bridge. The delay backs up vehicles on the two-lane highway — which also snarls Kitsap residents’ access to driveways and cross streets. Summer is the busiest time for closures because more pleasure boats are on Hood Canal. Last June, the bridge opened 29 times — 16 for recreational boats, 12 for Navy vessels and one for a test. It opened 48 times in July — 22 for pleasure craft, 19 for Navy vessels, two for commercial boats

and five for tests. Only eight July openings occurred between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., and five of them were for Navy vessels. The Coast Guard is accepting public comment on the pilot program through Nov. 30.

Third-place writing award earned by PDN journalist Peninsula Daily News

SEATTLE — Peninsula Daily News senior staff writer and Commentary page editor Paul Gottlieb won a third-place award for investigative journalism for daily newspapers with a circulation of 25,000 or less Saturday in the Society of Professional Journalists’ Northwest Excellence in Journalism contest. Gottlieb was recognized for his Oct. 31 story “Security breach at Coast Guard base examined.” The article details the final days of Lee Daniel Renfro, a 32-year-old Navy veteran from Forest Grove, Ore., who was found dead at the former Rayonier mill

site in Port Angeles in March 2010. “Three days earlier, Renfro had lied about his identity to gain Gottlieb entrance to the Coast Guard base in Port Angeles,” Gottlieb said. “Coast Guard personnel discovered him smoking marijuana on the Coast Guard cutter Active and escorted him off the base. “It was important for the public to understand how Renfro was able to breach security at a military installation, seemingly so easily. Security was beefed up at the base after the incident.”

Installation to begin for ‘smart meters’ June 6 is start date for PA general public By Tom Callis

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — City Hall plans to begin installing its new “smart” utility meters for the general public June 6. Meters were installed for City Council members last week. Next week, up to 50 city staff members will receive them. Phil Lusk, city power resources manager, said council members and some staff are getting them first to ensure that the new system is operating properly before installing them for other customers. So far, no problems have been found, he said. The first phase of installation will involve 1,000 automated water and electrical meters being placed in the

I Street neighborhood. The city is spending $5.4 million to replace the approximately 19,000 meters in Port Angeles. Installation, which takes five minutes per meter, is expected to be completed citywide in January.

Meters read remotely Rather than using meter readers, the new meters track electrical and water consumption remotely. The new meters can be read remotely through wireless devices and Capacity Provision Inc.’s fiberoptic network. They are more accurate than the current analog meters, many of which are beyond their lifespan, city officials said. Lusk said the accuracy of some water meters has been reduced by as much as 25 percent. As meters age, they slow down and often under-read utility use, he said. Electrical meters also have been shown to slow down over time, though

Voluntary program With the new meters, the city is starting a voluntary program that allows the city to remotely reduce energy use for some appliances when demand for electricity is at its highest. The program will save participants money since the city will start billing customers more for power used during the peak hours in 2012. For more information, phone Lusk at 360-4174703.

He adds meaning to Memorial Day PERHAPS YOU’VE HEARD of him, perhaps not. Louis Zamperini has had fame, lost it and seen it restored more than once. That happens when you are 94 years old and must be reintroduced to succeeding generations. Zamperini was a juvenile Cal delinquent, then an Olym- Thomas pic distance runner who competed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany (he met Adolf Hitler and his chief propagandist, Joseph Goebbels), then an Army Air Corps enlistee. Louis crashed in the Pacific after a rescue plane developed engine trouble. He floated for 47 days on a raft before being picked up by a Japanese warship. He and his surviving buddies were taken to a prison camp where they lived in subhuman conditions, suffering unimagina-

ble physical and mental torture. Louis’ incredible story of “survival, resilience, and redemption,” has been brilliantly told in Laura Hillenbrand’s latest book, Unbroken. I read all 398 pages in two sittings. For myself, the son of a World War II veteran whose four uncles also served, it is another of those “greatest generation” books popularized by Tom Brokaw. Reading it reinforces one’s pride in being an American and deepens the appreciation one feels for those who gave their lives so that we could live ours. On a recent visit to Washington, I asked Louis if he was able to call up vivid memories of his friends who died in the plane crash and the ones who subsequently died in the prison camp. He told me: “The memories never fade. It’s like indelible ink. When you go through an intense period like we did, it’s branded on your heart and mind.” When he thinks about those who died and those with whom he served, does Memorial Day make his memories even more vivid?

Louis says he recently read about “a kid who came back from Afghanistan about three months ago. They fixed his leg up and told him ‘Well, you can get out of the service now.’ “And he told them, ‘No, I want to go back to Afghanistan to be with my buddies.’ “That’s the way it is in war.

Peninsula Voices Decision defended A May 15 letter to the editor [“Critical of SARC”] suggested that the SARC board intended to limit applications to the position of manager (director) of SARC “so the board could confirm a previously made commitment.” These two incorrect presumptions imply that the board did not fairly hire the best qualified applicant. This is totally incorrect. Let’s deal with the first incorrect presumption: that the SARC board intended to limit the number of applications for the director position. I asked and learned the job was advertised for a protracted period, both locally and nationally, on multiple Internet sites, newspaper and in-house posting. Now the second incorrect presumption: that the board had previously promised the job to the person eventually hired. This is a completely baseless, false accusation. I asked and learned that the new director of

And it made them capable of getting through what they had to get through in the war. It gave them a sense of purpose; it gave them fortitude; it gave them an ability to endure. “I think that may be the biggest difference between that generation and now. We have had it easier. We have expectations we will be given certain things and things will come without sacrifice. That generation didn’t have that.” What would Hillenbrand say this Memorial Day to those who have lost loved ones in war? “I think the sacrifices that are made by fighting men and women are among the greatest you can make in your life.

Dam removals

Algae in lakes On May 22, the PDN again published a report giving incomplete information about the cause of impending algae bloom in Anderson Lake (and Leland and Gibbs lakes). As before, the article claims that warmer temperatures are the culprit for the algae growth and the anticipated closure for fishing and swimming. This is not and never has been the cause for an algae bloom in our lakes.

The real reason is overnutrification caused by too much fertilizer and/or human and animal waste being washed into any contained body of water. As an aquatic scientist, I have 31 years of experience in natural water reclamation. A viable low-cost answer to the Anderson Lake (and other bodies of water like our Hood Canal ) already

exists in the technology of “constructed wetlands.” This technology is lowtech, low-cost, natural and proven. A constructed wetland is capable of removing excess nutrients (nitrogen) from the agricultural runoff and septic tanks, the two biggest polluters of ground and surface water. I have lived here eight years and have repeatedly

offered the “constructed wetland technology” to communities and politicians. Enough scientific information is available to convince any doubter how well a constructed wetland works and the fantastic job it does, if properly designed by an expert, in restoring a lake, or river, to near pristine conditions.

State of Vermont in forefront again VERMONT IS A land of proud firsts. This small New England state was the first to join the 13 colonies. Its constitution was the Amy first to ban Goodman slavery. It was the first to establish the right to free education for all — public education. This week, Vermont will boast another first: the first state in the nation to offer single-payer healthcare, which eliminates the costly insurance companies that many believe are the root cause of our spiralling health-care costs. In a single-payer system, both private and public health-care providers are allowed to operate, as they always have. But instead

of the patient or the patient’s private health insurance company paying the bill, the state does. It’s basically Medicare for all — just lower the age of eligibility to the day you’re born. The state, buying these health-care services for the entire population, can negotiate favorable rates and can eliminate the massive overhead that the forprofit insurers impose. Vermont hired Harvard economist William Hsiao to come up with three alternatives to the current system. The single-payer system, Hsiao wrote, “will produce savings of 24.3 percent of total health expenditure between 2015 and 2024.” An analysis by Don McCanne, M.D., of Physicians for a National Health Program pointed out: “These plans would cover everyone without any increase in spending since the single-payer

efficiencies would be enough to pay for those currently uninsured or underinsured. So this is the really good news — single-payer works.” Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin explained to me his intention to sign the bill into law: “Here’s our challenge. Our premiums go up 10, 15, 20 percent a year. This is true in the rest of the country as well. “They are killing small business. They’re killing middle-class Americans, who have been kicked in the teeth over the last several years. What our plan will do is create a single pool, get the insurance company profits, the pharmaceutical company profits, the other folks that are mining the system to make a lot of money on the backs of our illnesses, and ensure that we’re using those dollars to make Vermonters healthy.” Speaking of healthy firsts,

Vermont may become the first state to shutter a nuclear power plant. The Vermont Legislature is the first to empower itself with the right to determine its nuclear future, to put environmental policy in the hands of the people. Another Vermont first was the legalization of same-sex civil unions. Then the state trumped itself and became the first legislature in the nation to legalize gay marriage. After being passed by the Vermont House and Senate, former Gov. Jim Douglas vetoed the bill. The next day, April 7, 2009, the House and the Senate overrode the governor’s veto, making the Vermont Freedom to Marry Act the law of the land. Vermont has become an incubator for innovative public policy. Canada’s single-payer healthcare system started as an experiment in one province, Saskatchewan. It was pushed through in the early 1960s by Saskatche-

wan’s premier, Tommy Douglas, considered by many to be the greatest Canadian. (Douglas is the grandfather of actor Kiefer Sutherland.) It was so successful, it was rapidly adopted by all of Canada. Perhaps Vermont’s health-care law will start a similar, national transformation. The anthropologist Margaret Mead famously said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Just replace “group” with “state”, and you’ve got Vermont.

Bike show, poker run set this weekend Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — The fourth annual Rock N Roll Bike Show will display bikes Saturday and host a poker run Sunday. The events spanning two days will raise funds for county court-appointed special advocates, said Cindylou Romberg, a former foster mother, who is a codirector of the event with Herb Woods. The bike show will be from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Armory Square upper-level parking lot at 228 W. First St., Port Angeles. Registration will be from 9 a.m. to noon. The show, which also will offer concessions and a raffle, will feature judging in eight classes — vintage, trike, custom/paint/mural, stock/semi-custom, badger (rat bike), best in show, best bagger and people’s choice. Trophies will be awarded between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. T-shirts will be for sale at the bike show, as well as a barbecue with burgers and soda, Romberg said. Raffle prizes will include leather jackets, gloves, riding blankets, jewelry and out-of-state Harley shirts, she said.

Registration for the poker run will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday at Olympic Powersports, 221 S. Peabody St., Port Angeles. The first bike out will be at 10 a.m. The run will travel west and end at the Black Diamond Community Hall at 1942 Black Diamond Road. A lasagna feed will begin there when bikers have arrived, sometime between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., Romberg said.

Peninsula Daily News for Thursday, May 26, 2011





Salmon is king; flatties are nice ONE HAS TO look long and hard to find any remnants of the old Port Angeles Salmon Derby. I stumbled upon one myself during an after- Matt noon bike ride Schubert along Ediz Hook a couple of years ago. There, stuck to an old, worn message board near the Hook’s public boat launch was a collection of faded Port Angeles Salmon Club derby brochures from the 1980s. While it might not seem all that long ago to some, it’s now been 18 years since the last Port Angeles Salmon Derby. Thus, an annual event that was once the Port Angeles equivalent of the Irrigation and Rhododendron festivals is but a memory. Talk to longtime locals about it, and they’ll surely rip off a few stories of what it used to be like each Labor Day weekend in Port Angeles. Thousands would come from out of town during the derby’s heyday, both for the fishing and the accompanying Derby Days festival. There was a parade, derby royalty and, of course, the two-day fishing contest that awarded $25,000 in prizes. A line of boat trailers took up the entirety of Ediz Hook, and the water out in front was dotted with boats jutting up against each other from bow to stern fishing the same drift. Salmon caught in the derby sat on ice in large bins for all to see all weekend on the Hook. And for some time, there was even a starting line for all of the boats to gather at. Once a flag was waved at dawn, they’d all take off in a mad dash for their favorite honey holes. After a man sunk his boat in the ensuing chaos one year, it was decided that perhaps such a start might be a little too risky for all involved. The derby went on for nearly six decades from 1937 to 1993 (minus a few years during World War II.) Even as the state’s salmon stocks thinned out, the salmon club and surrounding areas negotiated to keep fishing open for Labor Day. It wasn’t until the very last one in 1993 that the event had to be moved to July in order to fall in the state-mandated fishing season. One year later, fisheries managers lowered the boom with a complete closure of summer salmon fishing in the Strait. Port Angeles lost its salmon derby and, in a way, its identity. An article published in the PDN after the closures were announced summed it up thusly: “Salmon Capital of the World? Don’t look here.” By the end of the decade, Port Angeles saw all 18 of its charter operations leave town.

What’s left Perhaps the lasting legacy of the Port Angeles Salmon Derby is what anglers get to look forward to each Memorial Day weekend. The club’s annual Halibut Derby is, after all, a product of the popularity those 56 salmon derbies had before it. At its height in 1988, a total of 2,842 people registered for the salmon derby. The revenue generated from those events still helps support its flatty successor. It might not be quite as big, but the Halibut Derby is one of the largest fishing events on the Peninsula. It returns for the 11th year in a row this Saturday and Sunday when hundreds of anglers descend upon Port Angeles. The target may not be quite the same — salmon will always be king — but it’s still something worth celebrating. Let’s just hope we can keep this one around for a while.

Moug, Grauberger in top five Area golfers finish state on high notes Peninsula Daily News

DUPONT — Mason Moug never found the hot putter he was looking for. With everything else working for him, however, the Chimacum senior still managed to come up with the best finish of any North Olympic Peninsula golfer at this week’s state golf tournaments. Moug submitted another steady performance in the final round of the Class 1A state tourney Wednesday at The Home Course in rainy DuPont, shooting a 3-over-par 75 to finish tied for fourth place with a two-day score of 148. “I thought about [going for the championship],” said Moug, who came into Wednesday’s final round two strokes behind eventual champion Brett Johnson of Ridgefield. “But I just kind of went in there with an open mind, knowing most of those kids play golf the whole year and I only play four or five months. “Anything in the top five I was pretty happy about.”

Port Townsend and Chimacum had a strong showing at Class 1A state golf with two coaches and five players. The state competitors include, from left, Port Townsend coach Gabriel Tonan, Port Townsend golfers Gabe Hensley, Cody Piper and Sean Anderson, Chimacum golfer Mason Moug, Chimacum coach Mitch Black and Port Townsend girls golfer Jenny Grauberger, who claimed fifth at state. Moug was one of four area golfers to place in the top 10 in their respective tournaments. That included a fifth-place finish from Port Townsend’s Jennifer Grauberger in the 1A girls event and a ninth-place showing from schoolmate Cody

Piper in the 1A boys competition. Meanwhile, Sequim’s Ryan O’Mera rebounded form a rough start to take eighth among the 2A boys at The Classic Golf Course in Spanaway. “If he would have dropped a

couple of birdie putts — he had four [makeable] birdie putts on the back — he would have finished very high,” Sequim boys coach Vic Quinet said. Of course, much the same could be said of Moug. Turn



State track starts today Area sends 35 to 2A, 1A and 1B meets By Matt Schubert

Peninsula Daily News

With a total of 35 North Olympic Peninsula athletes competing in this weekend’s state track and field championships, there’s plenty of story lines. All told, the area has legitimate state title contenders in at least 14 separate events. It also has one team that may very well challenge for an overall crown of its own. And, of course, there is the battle of the Peninsula’s top two throwers — Port Angeles’ Troy Martin and Sequim’s Frank Catelli — which could very well decide two events in Class 2A. Beginning there, following is a list of the Peninsula’s top six story lines going into this weekend’s events.

Bedard, M’s breeze by Twins Seattle gets right back on winning track, hosts Yanks By Dave Campbell The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — First, his stomach. Then, the swing. Franklin Gutierrez is finally feeling better. Erik Bedard threw six shutout innings and Gutierrez hit his first home run of the season, propelling the Seattle Mariners past the slump-ridden Minnesota Twins for a 3-0 victory on Wednesday afternoon. “I feel good. I just needed time,” said Gutierrez, who joined the lineup last week after a mysterious, frustrating bout with stomach problems that sapped his energy last season and lingered into this spring. David Pauley tossed two scoreless innings in relief, Brandon League pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save in 15 attempts and the Twins managed only seven singles on their way to their fifth shutout this season. They have the worst record in the majors at 16-32 and the fewest runs with 164, an average of 3.42 per game. Bedard (3-4) had a lot to do with that, stretching his scoreless innings streak to 15. After missing last year with a bad shoulder, the Canadian left-hander has bounced back in

Prep Track and Field Peninsula’s Best

The Associated Press

Seattle second baseman Jack Wilson makes a late throw after falling while fielding a sharp grounder by Minnesota’s Matt Tolbert in the first inning Wednesday in Minneapolis. Wilson lost his glove on the play.

Mariners: Bedard leads team Continued from B1 impeccable. Pauley and Aaron Laffey “He’s just been very con- have been solid as setup sistent with his fastball and men. With four hitless innings his breaking ball and developing more confidence in his in a row, League has recovchangeup,” Mariners man- ered from a rough stretch ager Eric Wedge said, prais- earlier this month when he ing the tempo Bedard kept took the loss in four straight appearances, including on the mound. “He has a great heart- three blown saves. “We’re excited. This is fun beat out there.” The Mariners have baseball right now,” shortbarely been more potent stop Brendan Ryan said. After their six-game winthan the sputtering Twins this season with 176 runs ning streak was stopped the — an average of 3.59 per night before, the Mariners game — but their starting got right back on track pitching has been nearly before a 10-game homes-

tand against three American League East foes starting with the New York Yankees. That’s the kind of steadiness that Wedge is seeking from his team, which is right in the race in the mediocre AL West. “When you have a couple games in a row and you get the momentum on your side, you just feel like every game you can win. It’s a good feeling,” Bedard said. Brian Duensing (2-5) saved Minnesota’s depleted bullpen again by pitching seven innings the day after

Nick Blackburn’s completegame victory, yielding only four hits, but two of them were costly — and crushed. After Gutierrez walked to start the second inning, Adam Kennedy drove a double down the right-field line that eluded diving first baseman Justin Morneau’s glove and was difficult for Jason Kubel to corral in the corner. Gutierrez scored, and Kennedy cruised home two batters later on Brendan Ryan’s single to center past a drawn-in infield to give the Mariners a 2-0 lead.

Track: Loggers have a shot at Class 1B title Continued from B1 The Class 2A meet begins today and goes through Saturday at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma. Class 1A and 1B will compete Friday and Saturday at Eastern Washington University in Cheney.

No. 1 Throwers’ delight The Peninsula has a pair of event favorites between Martin and Catelli. Martin has been head and shoulders above the 2A pack in the discus most of the spring. His season-best throw of 175 feet, 8 inches is more than 10 feet better than the next-best competitor. Catelli has been equally dominant in the shot put of late, winning the Olympic and 2A bi-district meets in the last three weeks, the latter with a school record toss of 58-1½.

The two will go head-tohead in both events. While Catelli comes in peaking, Martin is still trying to recover from an ankle injury suffered two weeks ago. If Martin can somehow shake that off and throw to his potential this weekend, he could become the Roughriders’ first individual state track and field champion in 19 years.

No. 2 Sequim streak The individual crowns haven’t been nearly as scarce for the Sequim Wolves in recent years at the 2A level. Sequim has won at least one individual title in each of the past four seasons and six total in the past six. With Catelli in the 2A boys shot put, discus and javelin and Haleigh Harrison in the 2A girls high jump, the Wolves figure to have several chances to

extend that streak to five. On top of Catelli’s impressive marks, Harrison has the second highest jump in all of 2A this season with her school record leap of 5 feet, 4 inches. Teammate Audrey Lichten also has an outside shot in the 2A girls 1,600-meter race. She has the fourthbest time this season in the event.

No. 3 Red Devil relay The Neah Bay boys 4-by100 meter relay is the cofavorite to win its 1B race. The four-man team of DeShawn Halttunen, Joey Monje, Izaak Manuel and Titus Pascua has the top mark in 1B this spring at 46.06 seconds. Of course, the Pomeroy relay team of Austin Reisdorph, Jose Cruz, Jacob Moore and Tory Knebel has the same 46.06-second time. So, who will show up when it matters most?

Who knows? It could even be Crescent, which has 1B’s fourthbest time in the event (46.75) behind the running of Joel Williams, Eric Larson, Beau Bamer and Dylan Christie.

No. 4 Logger trophy The Logger boys’ depth goes beyond just the 4-by100 relay. Crescent will have athletes competing in nine events at the 1B boys meet this weekend. Joel Williams (800), Matthew Waldrip (300 hurdles), Dylan Christie (triple jump) and the two Logger relays have all put up top-4 times/ marks this spring. If things break just right, the Loggers could match last year’s second-place finish in the team standings or maybe even challenge Mount Rainier Lutheran for the title. The last time Crescent

did that: 1997, when the Logger boys and girls both won their respective state meets.

Braithwaite, however. His highest seeding in any of his four events is No. 7 in the long jump.

No. 5 One-man shows

No. 6 PT’s dynamic duo

Port Angeles and Chimacum both have a pair of supreme all-around athletes in Cameron Braithwaite and Derek Toepper. Braithwaite qualified for 2A state in four individual events for the Riders: high jump, long jump, triple jump and javelin. Toepper, meanwhile, will represent the Cowboys in three at 1A state: long jump, triple jump and 200. It will be interesting to see how many points each can accumulate for their team. Toepper figures to be a points machine for the Cowboys as a No. 2 seed in the long jump and No. 4 seed in the triple. Points might be a little harder to come by for

This weekend will be the last time Port Townsend’s storied long-distance running duo of Bereket Piatt and Habtamu Rubio will run together under the Redskin banner. Two years ago, the tandem finished 1-2 in the 1A state cross country meet. Last fall, they did the same thing at the Olympic League cross country meet at Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course. Piatt and Rubio will run together in the 1,600 and 3,200 at the 1A meet this weekend. Could they tap into that 1-2 magic one more time for the Redskins?

2A tournaments O’Mera eighth SPANAWAY — Ryan O’Mera came away with something to build on from Wednesday’s wet final round at The Classic Golf Course. Ten-over through the first 12 holes on a miserable day in Spanaway, the junior responded with five pars and one birdie to close out the day on a high note and earn eighth place. “Instead of finishing in the top 20, he knuckled down and came back and finished,” Quinet said. O’Mera started the day four strokes behind the leader and quickly dug himself a hole with a 7-over 43 on the front nine.

After bogeys on the 10th, 11th and 12th holes, it looked as if he might drop all the way out of the top 20. The solid finish on the final six holes, however, gave O’Mera the top placement by a Sequim boy at state since Adam Columbia took fifth in 3A in 2003. “He just kind of put things together on the last six holes,” Quinet said. “[That’s] starting to show his maturity.” Only the tournament champion, Ryan Wallen of Blaine, finished under par for the tournament with a two-day score of 143. “They had some pin placements that were just brutal,” Quinet said. “It was fair for the whole field, but for 2A to have only one player shoot under par for the two days says a lot for how tough the course was. “It’s a tough little track.” Both of the Sequim girls who made the first day cut in the 2A girls event — Hailey Estes and Kim Duce — had a tough time in Wednesday’s final round at Lake Spanaway Golf Course. Estes shot a 99 to finish 27th with a two-day score of 186, while Duce put up a 94 to place 33rd with a final score of 189.

to Mavs 100-96 The Associated Press

DALLAS — After all the incredible shots Dirk Nowitzki has hit this postseason, it was his vintage stuff — a straightaway 3-pointer and a pair of free throws — that put the Dallas Mavericks back in the NBA finals. Nowitzki continued a tremendous roll for him and the Mavs by capping yet another fourth-quarter comeback with a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:14 left, sending the Mavericks to a 100-96 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night that closed out the Western Conference finals in five games. After clawing back from down 15 with 5:04 left in Game 4, the Mavericks were down by six with 4:37 left in this one when they rallied again, outscoring the Thunder 14-4 the rest of the way. Dallas has never won a championship, and neither has any of its players. Nowitzki and Jason Terry were part of the only Mavericks team to make the finals, in 2006. They were up 2-0 and

leading late in Game 3, but lost the series to the Miami Heat in six games. Dallas could get another crack at the Heat. LeBron James and Miami lead the Chicago Bulls 3-1 in the Eastern Conference finals. If the Heat win Thursday night, the finals will begin Tuesday in Miami. If the Bulls win Thursday night, the finals will begin next Thursday in the East winner’s city. “All I can tell everybody is, we ain’t done yet,” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said during the on-court trophy presentation ceremony. Seconds later, fans began chanting, “Beat the Heat,” drowning out coach Rick Carlisle’s on-court interview. As fans were starting to clear out, Terry walked down the tunnel carrying the Western Conference championship trophy over his head. Nowitzki and Shawn Marion each scored 26 points, and were at their best in the fourth quarter. Nowitzki scored nine in the final period, and Marion had 15.

Politics and Environment

Tuition flexibility may blunt budget ax blow By Donna Gordon Blankinship

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — There’s a very good reason Washington state’s university presidents aren’t tearing down the governor’s door this week to complain about a proposed half-billion-dollar cut in state dollars for the state’s colleges and universities over the next two years, and it has nothing to do with not wanting the public to see them cry. They know the real people who should be crying are Washington parents who plan to send their children to college over the next few years. The state budget deal announced by lawmakers Tuesday is based on annual tuition increases ranging from 11 percent to 13 percent, depending on the school, but that’s only half the story.

Softens the blow Legislators also have approved a historic bill that will let the state’s six fouryear colleges and universities set their own tuition, so for the first time, tuition guidelines from the Legislature are just suggestions. UW interim President Phyllis Wise said Wednes-

day it’s hard to be happy about a budget that cuts another third of the university’s state appropriation, bringing the school about half the dollars they got from the state three years ago. “But these are unusual times, and to its credit, the Legislature did much to try to soften the blow and enable us to manage our resources in more efficient, targeted ways,” she said in a statement. The UW Board of Regents will begin its discussion about next year’s tuition in a few weeks, said Randy Hodgins, UW vice president of external affairs.

Parents tally numbers The board will be looking at a variety of scenarios, Hodgins said, with the aim of maintaining UW’s quality of education while not raising tuition so high that parents change their minds and decide to send their children elsewhere. Parents already expect a double-digit tuition increase, but they won’t know how much until sometime in July. The number being tossed around Olympia in recent weeks is 16 percent. “We won’t close the whole

gap with tuition,” Hodgins promised. Regents will choose from a range of options — each with a tuition price tag attached — such as maintaining writing centers on campus, making as many classes as possible available for the courses nearly all freshmen and sophomores are expected to take, or hiring more teaching assistants. This process will be repeated at college campuses around the state over the next month or so. Next year’s students have already been accepted and have mostly made their college choices by now. Hodgins doesn’t expect the regents’ decision to affect those choices. “It would take a tuition increase that no one here is contemplating to keep people away,” he said.

Tuition’s steep incline In-state tuition has been on a steep incline for the past few years. The Legislature authorized tuition increases of 14 percent for the past two academic years, after about six years of steady 7 percent increases, preceded by one year of 14 percent to 16 percent increases for 20022003.

The tuition-setting bill, which is expected to be signed by the governor, gives the six state schools tuition-setting authority through 2018-2019. In return, they must increase financial aid, make a plan to improve graduation rates, keep in-state student enrollment steady and cooperate with community colleges on transfer credits. The bill also would allow schools to set higher tuition rates for more expensive majors, such as science degrees that require a lot of lab work. State budget cuts will be a challenge to deal with, but universities in general were pleased with a lot of the Legislature’s work this year, particularly the flexibility they were given, said Mike Reilly, executive director of the Council of Presidents, a voluntary association of the state’s six four-year colleges More tuition will help, Reilly said, but the state really needs to take a closer look at how it’s going to meet its goals to send more kids to college. “Tuition is certainly part of the solution, but we’re never going to get to our goals without the state stepping up and defining its role in terms of financing public education,” he said.

Costco’s net income up 6% By Sarah Skidmore The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — Costco Wholesale Corp.’s third-quarter net income rose 6 percent as rising sales and membership fees made up for declining margins. But the wholesale club operator warned that rising costs for everything from meat to cotton for T-shirts will continue to pose a challenge, as it did during the third quarter. The dark news from one of the nation’s strongest retailers spooked some

investors Wednesday. “Overall, inflation’s hitting everybody,” Costco’s Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti told investors. “It’s going to continue.” Costco reported earnings of $324 million, or 73 cents per share, short of the 77 cents analysts anticipated. That was up from $306 million, or 68 cents per share, earned a year ago. But Costco’s shares fell $1.19 to $80.16 in afternoon trading. A $49 million charge for an accounting adjustment was what captured

the most attention. The LIFO charge, which stands for last-in-first-out, reflects a requirement that the company revalue its inventory if prices rise or fall notably. Because prices are up, Costco had to value its inventory higher, and that added 7 cents per share to its expenses. Costco said it expects to take a similar charge in the current quarter and potentially beyond as commodity prices continue to rise. Galanti said other retailers may make similar moves.

It’s part of a larger struggle for the industry. The rising costs of many common goods like fuel, grain, cotton and coffee are being passed along by manufacturers. Costco’s revenue rose 16 percent to $20.62 billion, just above expectations of analysts polled by FactSet. The number of shoppers in its stores and the amount they spent per visit continued to climb. Analysts said that the company continues to post impressive sales trends and its underlying fundamentals remain strong.

AIG bailout recovery no sure bet Government misread stock market appetite By Daniel Wagner The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Investors got a chance this week to weigh in on the government’s odds of recouping the full $182 billion bailout of American International Group Inc. The response so far: Don’t count on it. AIG shares skidded as much as 7 percent Wednesday, a day after the U.S. government sold a chunk of its stake in AIG. The stock recovered some of its losses, closing down 4 percent to $28.28. But it still trails the $28.73 average price the government needs to break even on the bailout. By offering 200 million shares at $29 each, experts say, the government misread the market’s appetite for AIG. After Wednesday’s price swoon, they say, it might have to delay future offerings of AIG stock. And taxpayers might have to give up on breaking even.

Treasury wants out

Earnings concerns

Renters or buyers? The price would rise, these unlucky renters assumed, because of additional demand from investors who didn’t receive any of the 300 million shares sold Tuesday night. There was no such demand, Sweet said, because most investors who had wanted shares were able to buy some of the 300 million. But generating stock profits isn’t a goal of underwriters, said John Fitzgibbon, who tracks stock offerings at He said the banks did their job — raising

money for the company and the government. “This is the object of investment banking — to raise money for a company, not to enrich the flippers,” Fitzgibbon said. “The aftermarket is another story completely, and that’s up to the traders.” In this case, Fitzgibbon said, the size of the offering and the price wiped out any remaining demand for AIG. That made the stock vulnerable to declines. KBW’s Gallant sees the price falling to $23 within 12 months. At that level, taxpayers would lose about $8 billion on the 1.4 billion AIG shares Treasury still owns. But Gallant said that’s a small loss compared with the potential disaster if the government had refused to bail out AIG at the peak of the financial crisis in 2008. “The U.S. government did stabilize the financial system by saving AIG, and if they have losses in the single-digit billions, that will be cheap,” he said.

PA Farmers Market has new vendors PORT ANGELES — Artisans Mark Bougie and Melissa Penic will begin vending at the Port Angeles Farmers Market on Saturday. Bougie owns Pacific Joinery and makes handcrafted furniture, wooden frames and everyday items like cutting boards. Penic will sell fine arts items like paintings and fused and etched glassware. The pair have been friends and collaborators for more than 20 years. The Port Angeles Farmers Market is open year-round from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. The market is located on the corner of Front and Lincoln streets in downtown Port Angeles. For more information, phone Cynthia Warne at 360-460-0361.

Durable cutback WASHINGTON — Businesses cut back on their orders for heavy machinery, computers, autos and airplanes in April, reducing demand for long-lasting manufactured goods by the largest amount in six months. Orders for durable goods fell 3.6 percent, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. The weakness was widespread across a number of industries as the impact of supply disruptions stemming from the Japanese earthquake in March rippled through U.S. manufacturing. Demand for autos, auto parts, steel, computers and electronic equipment all fell, and those declines were attributed in part to difficulty in getting critical component parts from Japan, where manufactur-

But Gallant said that wasn’t enough to sway investors concerned about whether AIG can grow and generate earnings. As more shares are created and traded publicly, Gallant said, “we have a better sense of what the market really thinks, because it’s not dominated by a small number of investors.” As of Wednesday, investors’ assessments of AIG were mostly negative, said Scott Sweet, senior managing partner of IPOBoutique. com. “People are selling because they don’t trust it, and they feel it’s going lower,” Sweet said. “This is going to make it exceptionally difficult to unload more shares as quickly as the government had in mind.” Treasury officials say the deal was priced and sized appropriately. They say short-term price swings will not determine whether the government can recoup its money.

Treasury can’t launch another offering until September. So why did investors pump $8.7 billion into AIG shares Tuesday night, then dump the shares Wednesday morning? Some never intended to hold the shares beyond Wednesday, Sweet said. He said the banks that handled the deal never determined whether “these were buyers rather than renters.”


“Treasury clearly wants to get out, and at some point I think exiting is more important than hitting a target price,” said Clifford Gallant, an analyst at KBW Inc. AIG received the biggest bailout during the financial crisis because it couldn’t meet its financial obligations to the world’s biggest banks.

AIG sold the banks insurance-like contracts to cover losses on mortgage bonds. Once the housing bubble burst and the bonds lost value, AIG couldn’t pay up. If AIG failed, officials said, the banks would follow. Since then, government and AIG officials have been working to settle AIG’s obligations, sell business units and repay its bailout money. Reducing the government’s control over AIG should help the company, Gallant said, by freeing management to determine compensation and other matters without regard to taxpayer interests.

Quilcene grows with the highway HAVING A CAR in the early 1900s was an adventure since most roads across the nation were dirt. A plan for a state highway linking Quilcene with Port Townsend and Olympia was under way by 1910. A gravel road, the Olympic Highway, was completed and ready for travel along Hood Canal in 1915. Gas was originally purchased from general stores by the bucketful. This evolved into stores installing a hand pump outside for the convenience of their customers. With the eventual increase of vehicle traffic, people needed easier access to gasoline along their routes. In 1919, Tom Richmond created one of the early Mary Ann and Ben Stamper family collection fueling stations along the Les Link stands at the door to the 101 Grocery and 76 Gas Station in Quilcene around 65 years ago.

Privacy, veterans’ care hot topics PLEASE KEEP THIS in mind as we launch into today’s column: Don’t kill the messenger! Besides, “open season” on columnists doesn’t begin until Oct. 15, which is the same day that “open enrollment” for Medicare Part D begins. Go figure. Certainly, I’m no stranger to mixed reactions; anytime I go on about this or that program or service, I know I can expect at least some thank-yous and a few “That didn’t work for me!” Some comments are more . . . colorful than others, but nothing — absolutely nothing! — is as guaranteed to garner both as anything relating to the Department of Veterans Affairs. None of that withstanding, I’m going to do it anyway because it might do some people some good who could stand to have some good done for them, so boldly going where I wish I didn’t have to go: I’m looking at a press release from the VA that says that, as of May 9 of this year, “eligible post9/11 veterans” who elect to receive their care at home from a primary family caregiver could help those caregivers receive some additional help and support. There is no explanation of what the phrase “eligible post-9/11 veteran” means. Evidently, eligible veterans and

HELP LINE service members can desigHarvey nate who their “family caregivers” are, and said caregivers might be eligible to receive a stipend, mental health services and access to health care insurance, if they don’t already have it. The press release says you can phone VA Caregiver Support Coordinators at 877-222-8387 for assistance with the application process or visit www.caregiver. and download a copy of the application (VA CG 10-10) or, I suppose, both. I’d do both. I don’t want to sound too facetious here; in my world, if there’s anyone who deserves all the help they can get, it’s “caregivers,” whom I define as “somebody who is taking care of somebody who needs to be taken care of, whether they like it or not.” I have no idea how the VA defines it. So, why not? If this even sounds vaguely like you to you, give these folks a call and


talk it over. Besides, there are probably some other services for caregivers of vets that none of us have ever heard of. The worst that can happen is . . . nothing. OK, since I seem to be a glutton for potential punishment on the 26th day of May, and there are still five months to go before “open season,” I might as well charge headlong into the other guaranteed “trigger topic”: privacy! One of the greatest “secret weapons” we have in my business are those little “panic-button gizmos” that you can hang around your neck or wear on a bracelet or wherever, then push the button if you need help. They are generally referred to as “Personal Emergency Response Systems.” (Note: Do not take them off before getting into the shower. That’s where you need them the most.) Generally, they all work pretty much the same way in that when you push the button, it sends a message to a call center, which then tries to call you back to see what’s up (or down) or call for help. They work remarkably well; however, a long-standing drawback has always been that they only work in and around your home because they’re tied into

your phone line. What seems to be happening more and more is people have the unmitigated lack of foresight to actually leave the house! — or worse . . . travel! Have they no shame? Well, regardless, up till recently, if you were on the road, you were on your own, but that’s changing — quickly. One such product is MobileHelp, which you can check out at or phone 800-800-1710. It works pretty much the same way the traditional PERS units do, but it has a separate device that can be used to summon help from anywhere. What’s more, it contains GPS technology, so you can locate Mom wherever she is. Beginning to see my problem? Here’s another: ActiveCare’s “Personal Assistance Link” (www. or 877-219-6628) provides mobile, one-button access to a 24-hour call center for help or roadside assistance or directions or . . . YES: GPS technology and fall-detection capability in case Mom takes a dive on the road — and it functions as a simplified cellphone, so she can make calls. One more: A company called “SecuraTrac” has a product called “LifeTrac MobileProtector” that does all the same stuff (GPS, fall-

I think they’re a great idea! And I think a lot of the “kids” will think they’re a great idea. The only “problem” is that there is always the occasional “mom” here and there who isn’t so wild about having the kids know all about her whereabouts all the time. To each their own. Did I mention that I’m relocating to Tahiti on Oct. 14?

Fun ’n’ Advice

Peninsula Daily News

Mom’s outbursts may mean dementia


DEAR ABBY: My dad died four years ago. He and Mom had many friends and did everything together, including raising nine children. Mom was always in charge of things. Dad reinforced any decisions she made and vice versa. Since his death, Mom has become progressively more bitter. Eight children are alive today, and we all avoid her if we can. She cries because no one stops by to see her, but if we do, she has a long chore list waiting. I have my own home, work two jobs and don’t want what little time I have with her spent working as her slave. If by chance I feel brave enough to take her out in public, she embarrasses me with her verbal outbursts. She waits until I start to pay, then asks loudly, “Are you sure you have enough money in the bank to pay for that?” Another time, she stopped a complete stranger, told him I was single and asked if he wanted to know my bra size! I have tried talking to her. She just gets mad and makes my life even more miserable. Mom will be 70 in a few months. I want to enjoy her and what time we have left together, but I find myself running away from her wrath. I don’t want to live without her, but I don’t want to live with her, either. Please tell me what to do. Driven Away in Georgia

The following year, I had a stroke and was laid up for a while. This year, as I was on my way to get the tickets, my car broke down. I work so hard to give my kids what they need, but I can’t give them a vacation they can remember for the rest of their lives. I feel like I have let them down. How can I make this feeling go away?

Peninsula Daily News

Change oil twice a year Dear Doctor: I own a 2010 Mercedes ML350 that I purchased new in February 2010. I was told to bring it in for service in November, which I did. They said I wouldn’t have to bring it back for one year. I’m concerned about changing the oil. My mechanic said Mercedes uses synthetic oil and I shouldn’t worry. Also, I notice a hesitation when I start the car in the morning. Should I bring it in for service? Terry Dear Terry: There is no question that today’s engine oils and other lubricating fluids are far superior from earlier years. Some manufacturers, such as Mercedes, recommend an annual oil change. We owned a 2007 Mercedes E350, which also required only an annual oil and filter service. Personally, I like to change the oil and filter twice a year. This can be done at any qualified service center. As for the engine not starting on the first turn, this could be any number of problems, including initial low fuel pressure, coolant sensor out-of-range or a computer needing reprogramming. The manufacturer should cover this service issue.
