Edmonds ponders its own big dig To relieve waterfront congestion, the city proposes a trench that would accommodate train traffic. By Sharon Salyer Herald Writer

EDMONDS — A proposed 7,800-foot trench to allow trains to pass through the city below grade would cost an estimated

$250 million to $290 million, according to Tetra Tech, a Seattle consulting firm. The trench would begin near the city’s off-leash dog park on the waterfront and would end near Caspers Street. It’s the latest

suggestion to solve congestion around the city’s waterfront caused by passing trains — a problem the city has wrestled with for years. The trench would help alleviate congestion around the waterfront by allowing traffic to pass above the tracks on bridges that would be built at Dayton and Main streets. The suggestion was made

by two residents, Chuck and Katherine Gold, who developed a website, Edmonds Train Trench, to outline their proposal. The city paid Tetra Tech $10,000 to do what Mayor Dave Earling described as a preliminary look at both the cost and the engineering challenges to be overcome if the trench is constructed. Among the issues outlined in

Gone, but not forgotten

the report are excavating a trench that would be up to 30 feet deep in what is described as weak soil. The trench would need to be deepest from just north of Main Street to just south of Dayton Street, said Rick Schaefer, a senior program manager at Tetra Tech. See TRENCH, Page A2

Herald staff LYNNWOOD — Firefighters reported rescuing two people from a burning house in a neighborhood near the James Village shopping center Sunday night. Lynnwood Fire Department crews responded to the home on the 6200 block of 193rd Street SW at 7:10 p.m. When firefighters arrived, they found the house engulfed in flames, Chief Scott Cockrum said. A man in his 50s had collapsed inside, near the front door. He was taken to Swedish/ Edmonds Hospital. Firefighters went further into the house and found a woman in her 40s. She was taken to Harborview Regional Medical Center in Seattle. Conditions of the two people were not available. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Crews battled the blaze for about 45 minutes.

State’s first pot auction brings in $600K Associated Press PROSSER — Washington state’s first marijuana auction brought in about $600,000. Fireweed Farms of Prosser sold about 300 pounds of pot to statelicensed processors and retailers Saturday, the Tri-City Herald reported . Bidding took place under a black tent fronted by tall heaters, and the event was monitored by at least two representatives of the Washington Liquor Control Board. Bidders could smell plastic bags of buds before offering a bid. The marijuana was planted in May and harvested between late September and mid-October. Fireweed Farms owner Randy Williams had sold some of his marijuana to recreational processors earlier this year, but the auction represented the bulk of his harvest. He said he held the auction to “get rid of it all quick” so he could spend time with his grandson instead of packaging marijuana. The harvested and dried marijuana was priced by the gram and auctioned

Other issues the project would face are proximity to the Puget Sound shoreline and to nearby steep slopes, shallow groundwater and the challenge of building the project while maintaining a rail line with frequent train trips, according to the report. The project would take about three years to

by the strain in lots ranging from about half a pound to five pounds. Williams said he planned to donate proceeds from three lots, totaling $14,000, to local schools. Lt. Jeremy Wissing, an officer with the state Liquor Control Board who monitored a portion of Saturday’s auction, said it appeared to be well run. “I’m seeing a wellorganized event,” Wissing said outside the Fireweed Farms grow area. “It isn’t a circus. I’m not seeing open consumption of marijuana.” Williams initially hoped to make $1 million through the marijuana fire sale, but said during the auction that he’d be happy with $600,000 or $700,000. The purchased marijuana was to remain under video-monitored quarantine at Fireweed Farms overnight Saturday, Wissing said. Buyers could either retrieve their marijuana Sunday or arrange for it to be delivered to their business by Williams. Although Saturday’s auction was the state’s first, Wissing doesn’t expect it to be the last.


Leo Gontmakher, a marijuana processor with Northwest Cannabis Solutions in Sultan, smells a bag of marijuana during Saturday’s auction at Fireweed Farms in Prosser. Fireweed Farms auctioned off 300 pounds of marijuana in the first auction of its kind in the state.

“It’s just a different way of moving his product,” Wissing said. Interest in the marijuana auction was so intense that Williams commissioned the use of a parking lot across the street from his property to accommodate the visitors. Buyers were provided with a detailed list of strains and lot sizes that provided a complete potency profile,

labeling requirements and the date the batch was tested by Confidence Analytics, a state-certified laboratory. The auction attracted about three dozen potential buyers from across the state. Nazareth Victoria, a 50-year-old licensed marijuana processor from Seattle, left empty-handed. He came because he was interested in seeing what

was available, but ultimately wasn’t sure about the quality, he said. “I was just interested in the whole process,” Victoria said. “To me, smoking the product is the ultimate test to tell you the quality.” Sampling the product was strictly forbidden Saturday. “This is a controlled business environment,” Wissing said.

chance to educate other senators to what’s going on from people who have spent countless hours dealing with the disaster and its outcome,” Pearson said. “It is crucial that we hear directly from the folks in those communities about the recovery efforts, what support they still need and

how we at the Legislature can be a part of providing that support,” Pearson said. Gov. Jay Inslee and Snohomish County Executive John Lovick created the commission following the March mudslide in which 43 people perished. Its tasks include establishing a timeline of events and conducting a review

of the emergency response including search and rescue, recovery of victims, and coordination among local, county, state, tribal and federal governments. It also will propose changes to policies, codes or operational procedures, The 12-member panel is to deliver its recommendations to the state and

county by Dec. 15. Pearson said he’ll consider introducing legislation once the commission findings are released. “I do anticipate there will be something coming out next session,” he said. Jerry Cornfield: 360-3528623; jcornfield@heraldnet. com.

complete, it says. “It has to be technically achievable and it has to be judged as financially affordable,” Schaefer said. There are a lot of complicated issues raised by the trench concept, said Patrick Doherty, the city’s economic and community services director. “Probably one of the biggest ones is the railroad needs to agree.” Gus Melonas, a spokesman for the BNSF, said the railroad is reviewing the proposal and “will discuss

details further with the city.” Edmonds will ask the Legislature for $1.25 million to pay for a more in-depth look at how to solve the traffic issues in the city’s busy waterfront district, Doherty said. “If we’re able to get the money for an alternatives analysis, it would be at that point that we would decide” if the trench is feasible enough to include in the analysis, he said. Traffic enters the city from the north and south to catch the

Edmonds-Kingston ferry, used by by 3.8 million walkon passengers and drivers each year. Ferry vehicle and pedestrian traffic must cross the train tracks when loading and disembarking. Traffic delays also are caused by an increasing number of passing trains. About 40 trains go through the city each day, shutting down access to the city’s waterfront for about two hours a day, according to city officials. On occasion, trains break down along the waterfront, blocking access to the area

by both emergency vehicles and general traffic. Earling has advocated for a study of transportation alternatives because train traffic is expected to increase significantly by 2030. If a projection of 100 trains a day is reached, it could shut down access to the waterfront and the state highway leading to the ferry for an estimated four-and-a-half hours in a 24-hour period, according to Earling. That would block access to the underwater dive park, the port and a senior center.

Former HR director gets $1M By Noah Haglund Herald Writer

SEATTLE — A federal jury awarded Edmonds’ former human resources director $1 million in damages Friday, finding that she was fired

wrongfully and defamed by the mayor at the time. Debi Humann had worked for the city more than a dozen years before being forced out in the fall of 2011. Her lawsuit named former Mayor Mike Cooper as a defendant, in addition to

the city. “I got fired illegally for doing my job,” Humann said Saturday. Humann maintained that Cooper sent her packing just days after she told him she was cooperating with a state audit of his executive assistant’s

timesheeets. She and other city employees doubted that Kimberly Cole actually worked the number of hours reported. Cooper had signed off on the time sheets. See HR, Page A4

Stanwood High School senior Ingrid Pelletier has developed a keen interest in politics and is active in the Future Business Leaders of America.

Learning to be a leader Herald Writer

Ingrid Pelletier, 17, is a senior at Stanwood High School. Born and raised in Stanwood, she’s taken an interest in local politics. She’s senior class president and sits on the Stanwood-Camano School District’s Board of Directors and the Stanwood City Council as their student representative. She also enjoys photography, fashion, music and, her most recent hobby, baking. Question: What are your favorite subjects and things to do in school?

Answer: Oh boy, I’d have to say English and history have always been my favorite subjects. I love writing and I love history. I love visiting historical sites, as well. I’ve been back to Boston a lot, and I love the patriotic sites. Also, I’m interested in civics and politics. Q: What kind of extracurriculars are you involved in? A: So I’ve been involved with FBLA, which is Future Business Leaders of America. This is my fourth year. I’ve gone to state all four years and I just really love the business aspect of it because it’s something I want to do when I grow up is get into the business

world, so that’s been a club I’ve really enjoyed. I’ve been on the tennis team since I was a freshman and I was on varsity last year. It’s a great, great team with good coaches. I’ve been with National Honor Society for two years and National English Honor Society for three years. And I’ve also been involved with school politics since I was a sophomore. Sophomore year I was the treasurer and secretary, junior year I was the president and this year I’m senior class president. And then I’m also the school board representative and the city council representative. Q: What got you interested

in getting involved in politics, not just at the school level, but with the school board and city council? A: When I was in middle school and younger, I was really quiet and shy, and it wasn’t until my seventh grade year when a teacher used to have us come and practice these speeches and we’d have these little projects we’d do and it really made me feel more comfortable with myself and with presenting myself in front of an audience.

No more gunning it for a gap on Highway 9 at 32nd Street SE. A new traffic signal was expected to light up in time for the Friday morning commute at the intersection, according to the Washington Department of Transportation. The signal aims to improve safety, particularly for drivers trying to make left turns on and off Highway 9 in fast-moving traffic. The intersection was the site of 18 collisions from 2006 to 2010, including one serious injury collision. The new signal was combined with another WSDOT project on Highway 9 more than seven miles north in Marysville, at 84th Street NE (Getchell Road), where a roundabout was installed. Both those projects are part of a larger effort that started in 2000 to improve the Highway 9

Jim Jackson, who lives in Everett’s Lowell neighborhood, wonders why a speed limit sign was moved approximately onehalf mile on Lowell Snohomish River Road over the summer. “Why would they spend money to move signs that don’t need to be moved?” Others have wondered about this, too. File this one as a correction. “We recently discovered the ‘Welcome to Everett’ and speed limit signs on Lowell Snohomish River Road were not actually located at the city limits,” said Marla Carter of the city’s Public Works Department. “We relocated them to the correct position where you see them now. The speed limit on that road was set by City Council action some years ago and extends to the city limits.”

already in the circle, and in all lanes, then enter a gap in the circle and proceed to your exit. In a multi-lane roundabout, choose a lane before entering. And don’t change lanes once you’re in the roundabout. Choose the same lane you would in a regular intersection — so if you want to make a left turn, get in the left lane. To make a U-turn, also use the inside lane. Share space with larger vehicles, like school buses and tractor-trailers, which may need both lanes to navigate a roundabout’s curve. If an emergency vehicle approaches while you’re in a roundabout, don’t stop. Instead, exit the roundabout and then pull to the right. WSDOT has a whole

Speaking of roundabouts

corridor through Snohomish County. By 2017, the state expects to have spent $300 million on improvements. The new 32nd Street signal project cost $2.2 million, covered by existing funds. The roundabout was budgeted at $14.6 million but came in at $6.75 million, funded with gas tax revenue. The $7.85 million savings will be used for other Highway 9 projects. Most of the projects on that list are done or operationally complete. One big-ticket item remains. The state now hopes to drum up enough funding to replace the southbound

When we asked readers for their pet peeves, roundabouts came up. “My pet peeve is roundabout users not signaling their intentions,” said Matt Mauzey from Lake Stevens. “My noted observations are from traveling in England, where traffic flows great when everyone follows the rules!” So let’s have a little refresher for drivers in the new Highway 9-Getchell Road roundabout. And, yes, using your turn signal is one of the tips. Here are the other main points: Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and to traffic

Both ferries on the Coupeville to Port Townsend route will now pull double-duty as they take vehicles and passengers across the water. Thanks to sensors installed on their hulls, the Kennewick and Salish ferries also will help monitor water quality in Puget Sound for the Department of Ecology and the University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory. The ferries were chosen because they travel back and forth across a key aquatic intersection — where the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the greater Puget Sound meet. This “constriction” point is where circulation and exchange between the basins happen. Measuring the speed and direction of those waters as they flow under the ferry, season after season, will help researchers better understand how oceanic and large-scale climate patterns affect Puget Sound. The Salish is already equipped with the “acoustic Doppler current profiler.” The sensor will now be added to the Kennewick. Learn more at FerriesForScience. Have a question?

Alderwood Ankle & Foot says choose insurance to suit your needs


t is open enrollment time for health insurance plans and most people planning to change are carefully doing their homework to find out which plan will work best for them. That’s good news to Dr. Don B. Floyd and Dr. Sandi Pollard at Alderwood Ankle & Foot Clinic in Lynnwood and Lake Stevens. Over the last year, both doctors have had patients who had been coming to them for years suddenly discover their new healthcare plan either didn’t allow them to choose someone local as their practitioner or now required a referral where no referral had been needed before. Many of those patients

originally selected the cheapest healthcare plan available without thinking about what was important to them or what would be most cost effective in the long run. For example, many plans require a $15 co-pay to see a primary care doctor and a $45 co-pay to see a specialist. What sometimes happens is people have to go to their primary care doctor for a foot or ankle issue, pay the $15 co-pay then get referred to the specialist where they must pay another $45 co-pay. A plan that allows a patient to go straight to a specialist can save time and money in the end. Even if a plan did not

require a referral previously, patients should still check before signing up because things may have changed. For example, the AARP Medicare Complete plans did not require a referral to see a podiatrist or foot and ankle specialist but now they do, which took some of Alderwood Ankle & Foot Clinic’s patients by surprise. Other patients have been surprised to discover that large group healthcare plans such as those from Everett Clinic, Swedish or PacMed require patients to see specialists such as podiatric physicians only within their network. Those network physicians may be located in Seattle or Bellevue.

for routine foot care and for medical issues such as neuropathy or skin issues that can put a diabetic’s foot at risk. Many diabetics come to the office for medically sterile toenail trims to avoid potentially dangerous infections. The office is often able to offer patients same day appointments for foot or ankle issues so there is no delay in getting an issue taken care of. In fact, some patients have found it is more con-

venient and affordable to simply come to Alderwood Ankle & Foot Clinic even if it is not covered by their healthcare plan. With the current cost of co-pays, it sometimes costs little more.

Having to drive over an hour to see a specialist or having to wait six weeks or more to set up an appointment can be a deal breaker for those patients who are used to being able to visit their local specialist and on the same day or within a day or two of their call. Many patients also want the ability to stay with the same doctor who has been treating them for years. Obviously there are patients who won’t care about the requirements of their chosen plan or who are unable to predict they may need a podiatric specialist in the near future. But for people with existing foot and ankle issues, diabetics, athletes or parents with children in school sports, it is important to take the time to research all of the healthcare options available and find the one that will best serve their needs. Dr. Floyd and Dr. Pollard are board-certified foot and ankle surgeons who can treat both surgically and conservatively to keep people active. Both doctors have an interest in sports, particularly school sports. They know the importance of teaching patients about injury prevention with properly fitting ankle braces, proper shoes or orthotics as well as how to treat an injury when it occurs. The doctors also see a lot of diabetic patients both

After Humann’s termination, Cooper made statements to the news media about how his trust in her had deteriorated. One read, in part, that he “no longer had confidence in her ability to do the job and work effectively with me.” Humann soon filed a whistleblower complaint challenging her termination and seeking her job back. Cooper was campaigning at the time to keep the mayor’s job, but lost in a blowout that November. Dave Earling, the current mayor, took nearly 65 percent of the vote. Cooper, a former Democratic County Councilman and state House member, had been appointed mayor of Edmonds in 2010. He’s now the director of the Mountlake Terrace Senior Center. Reached Sunday, Cooper said he wasn’t ready to comment on the case. Almost immediately upon taking office, Earling fired Cole from her $79,000-per-year job. The new mayor also hired Humann back, but she

was laid off two weeks later because the City Council had cut the HR director’s job from the budget. Cole’s work troubles weren’t limited to Edmonds. She was kicked off the Lynnwood City Council in 2012 for attendance problems. Questions about poor attendance also had dogged her at the County Council where she worked as Cooper’s legislative aide before going to work for him in Edmonds. Cole now lives in New Jersey and appeared at the trial remotely by video, according to coverage on the My Edmonds News website. Humann filed her federal lawsuit in January 2013. The trial took place in downtown Seattle and stretched over three weeks. Witnesses included a who’s who of Edmonds politics, including Earling, former Mayor Gary Haakenson, council members and top-level city employees. A judge threw out two of Humann’s claims, but kept four others. The jury began deliberations Friday morning and delivered their verdict that afternoon. Damages

dollars,” Bloom said in a statement. “She did the right thing at great personal cost.” Humann, on Saturday, said she felt relieved. She hoped the verdict would reassure other city employees. “I had heard from a number of people after I was fired that nobody was going to step up if they had to report something for fear they would be fired,” she said. Humann grew up in Edmonds and still lives there. As a human resources director named Humann, she was once featured in a Daily Herald series about aptonyms, or names that aptly suit their owners. Until her ouster, she said, the working atmosphere at the city, mostly under former mayor Haakenson, had been one of respect between management and staff. “The employees were valuable, the city listened to them and we reacted appropriately,” she said. “That was the culture.” She said hopes that culture has been restored.

Burn ban upgraded to Stage 2 as air quality worsens The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency imposed a stricter Stage 2 burn ban for Snohomish County effective at noon Sunday because of worsening air quality. During a Stage 2 ban, nobody is allowed to use any wood-burning fireplace, wood stove or fireplace insert, even if they are certified models. Even people with who lack another source of adequate heat cannot generate visible smoke. All outdoor burning is prohibited, including wood- and charcoalfueled recreational fires. A Stage 1 ban had been in effect since Friday because of stagnant air

and low wind speeds. The National Weather Service predicted dry, cold conditions in the Everett area through Tuesday night, when clouds were expected to move in. Rain is possible later in the week. To receive an update on the ban status, call this toll-free hotline: 800552-3565. A new smartphone app called “Burn Ban 411” also can give people the latest status and can be downloaded at

Lynnwood: Ice causes accidents, spinouts A water leak left a sheet of ice on Mukilteo Speedway during sub-freezing temperatures Saturday night, causing at least two traffic accidents, the Washington State Patrol said.

Please Call For Pricing And Deadlines

The leak originated near the Speedway and Lincoln Way around 8:15 p.m., Trooper Mark Francis said. It also left ice on nearby parts of Highway 99. One man involved in a rollover crash was transported to a local hospital with what were believed to be minor injuries, Francis said. No one was injured in a separate two-car crash. Spinouts were reported as well. “Whenever you have ice, you need to be slowing down,” Francis said. “Obviously, in this case, it came out of nowhere because there was no precipitation.” Crews from the Washington State Department of Transportation sanded the roadway. Troopers had cleared the accident scenes shortly after 9 p.m. From Herald staff reports

of $1,035,351 were for a combination of back pay, future economic damages, impairment to her reputation and emotional distress from defamation. Earling said the city was “disappointed in the outcome.” “It’s simply time to put this issue behind us and get back to running the city,” he said. Jayne Freeman, a defense attorney for the city, said they had yet to decide whether to appeal. While they didn’t win the case, Freeman said they did convince the judge to throw out claims alleging violations of due process and Humann’s civil rights. Nevertheless, those claims ended up prolonging the trial, she said. “This case has always really been an unemployment case,” Freeman said. “It always was and should have been about her (Humann’s) termination.” Humann was represented by Seattle attorneys Beth Barrett Bloom and Jillian M. Cutler. “Debi Humann is exactly the kind of government employee we want guarding our taxpayer

school politics and leadership. And so freshman year I took that leap of faith and decided to run for sophomore class treasurer and secretary, and I won. Ever since then, I’ve been really interested with that whole aspect and I’ve kind of seen myself maybe getting into state or federal politics when I’m older. Q: What are your plans after graduation? A: I have three colleges that I’m going to be applying to: Notre Dame, University of Washington and Seattle Pacific University. I think my No. 1 school would be Notre Dame. Their business school is really good and so I think that’s why I want to go there, so I can pursue a business degree. I think it’s a really flexible, kind of general degree that could lead you anywhere. I could go into law or business and entrepreneurship. Q: In the long-term, what would you like to accomplish? A: Well, I’ve had several ideas. I’ve been more leaning to the entrepreneur side of business and maybe starting my own business. Or I would go into a more corporate setting. I’ve always liked Nordstrom and I like fashion as well, so if I could get into their corporate offices I would really love that. Q: Outside of school, what do you do for fun? Any hobbies? A: Well, photography is probably my biggest hobby. My dad got a Canon Rebel

X about six years ago, and he’s barely used it but I’ve kind of taken it over. I’ve entered a couple competitions and I love entering my photos into the Stanwood Fair. I’ve won best in show a couple times. It’s just been kind of a casual hobby. I don’t know if I’d pursue it professionally. I love just being able to go outside and take photos. I really love nature photography. I love going to the beach and hanging out in nature. I love forests and gardens. We moved this past year, and our old garden had so much wildlife. I would love taking pictures of the little butterflies and bugs and trees and flowers, all of that. I just love kind of the natural architecture of plants and that natural art element. And I like fashion a lot, so fashion blogging and designing have been kind of another hobby. I also love music. I’ve played oboe, flute, violin, ukulele and now guitar. Q: Any other interests in your downtime? A: I do love baking. I love to make cupcakes and cookies. My favorite is lavender cupcakes. I just made those this summer. My mom told me I should learn some household things because I’m going to be leaving this summer, so I was like, “OK, I’ve got this.” I’m not the best yet, but I’m working on it. Oh, and I love one-liner jokes. I actually used that in my campaign for senior class president last year. I said, “Have you heard the joke about the broken pencil? Well, never mind, it’s pointless. But I promise that I won’t be pointless.” Kari Bray: 425-339-3439;

U.S. aid worker beheaded By Diaa Hadid Associated Press

BEIRUT — The Islamic State group released a video Sunday of a masked militant standing over a severed head it claimed was Peter Kassig, a former U.S. Army Ranger-turned-aid worker who was taken hostage while delivering relief supplies to Syrians caught in that country’s brutal civil war. Hours later, the White House confirmed Kassig’s death after a review of the video, which also showed the mass beheadings of a dozen Syrian soldiers. The 26-year-old Kassig, who returned to the Middle East to help wounded and displaced Syrians, “was taken from us in an act of pure evil by a terrorist group that the world rightly associates with inhumanity,” President Barack Obama said in a statement. He denounced the extremist group, which he said “revels in the slaughter of innocents, including Muslims, and is bent only on sowing death and destruction.” With Kassig’s death, the Islamic State group has killed five Westerners it was holding. American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff were beheaded, as were British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning. Unlike previous videos of slain Western hostages, the footage released Sunday did not show the decapitation of Kassig or the moments leading up to his death. “This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen ... who fought against the Muslims in Iraq,” said the black-clad militant, who spoke with a British accent that was distorted in the video, apparently to disguise his identity. Previous videos featured a militant with a British accent that the FBI says it has identified, though it hasn’t named him publicly. The slain hostage’s parents, Ed and Paula Kassig, said they were “heartbroken” by their son’s killing, but “incredibly


Peter Kassig is shown with a truck loaded with supplies in this undated photo. The Islamic State group released a graphic video Sunday in which a black-clad militant claimed to have beheaded Kassig, a U.S. aid worker who was providing medical aid to Syrians fleeing the civil war when he was captured in Syria on Oct. 1, 2013.

proud” of his humanitarian work. Kassig “lost his life as a result of his love for the Syrian people and his desire to ease their suffering,” the parents said in a statement from Indianapolis. The footage released Sunday identifies the militants’ location as Dabiq, a town in northern Syria that the Islamic State group uses as the title of its English-language propaganda magazine and where they believe an apocalyptic battle between Muslims and their enemies will occur. The high-definition video also showed the beheadings of about a dozen men identified as Syrian military officers and pilots, all dressed in blue jumpsuits. The black-clad militant warns that U.S. soldiers will meet a similar fate. “We say to you, Obama: You claim to have withdrawn from Iraq four years ago,” the militant said. “Here you are: You have not withdrawn. Rather, you hid some of your forces behind your proxies.”

A U.S.-led coalition is targeting the Islamic State group in airstrikes, supporting Western-backed Syrian rebels, Kurdish fighters and the Iraqi military. Kassig, who served in the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, a special operations unit, deployed to Iraq in 2007. After being medically discharged, he returned to the Middle East in 2012 and formed an aid organization, Special Emergency Response and Assistance, to aid Syrian refugees. A certified EMT, Kassig had delivered food and medical supplies and provided trauma care to wounded Syrians before being captured in eastern Syria on Oct. 1, 2013. Friends say he converted to Islam in captivity and took the first name Abdul-Rahman. In a statement issued as he flew back to Washington after a trip to the Asia-Pacific region, Obama said Kassig “was a humanitarian who worked to save the lives of Syrians injured and dispossessed” by war. The

president offered prayers and condolences to Kassig’s family. “We cannot begin to imagine their anguish at this painful time,” he said. Earlier, Kassig’s family said that it preferred “our son is written about and remembered for his important work and the love he shared with friends and family, not in the manner the hostage takers would use to manipulate Americans and further their cause.” Burhan Agha, a Syrian who worked with Kassig in Lebanon, wept when recounting his friend’s humanitarian work. “If I could apologize to each American, one by one, I would, because Peter died in Syria, while he was helping the Syrian people,” Agha told The Associated Press by telephone from Switzerland, where he is seeking asylum. “Those who killed him claimed to have done it in the name of Islam. I am a Muslim and am from Syria. ... (His killers) are not Muslims.”

Confrontations await Obama after trip By Julie Pace Associated Press

BRISBANE, Australia — After a productive trip abroad, President Barack Obama returned home Sunday on a collision course with Republicans on immigration and an oil pipeline project, showdowns that threaten prospects for cooperation over his remaining two years in office. The contentious immigration debate could mean a year-end fight over keeping the government running, if some GOP lawmakers get their way. On the foreign policy front, there is a Nov. 24 deadline in nuclear negotiations with Iran, and questions are surfacing within the administration about whether to overhaul U.S. policy toward Syria. Given his faltering political support in the U.S. and his party’s recent election losses, his trip to China, Myanmar and Australia appeared to offer respite. The president, who arrived in Washington late Sunday, basked in policy breakthroughs with China and warm welcomes in Myanmar and Australia. “I intend to build on that momentum when I return home,” Obama said at a news conference before heading home. When Obama set off for the Asia Pacific, both the White House and Republicans were suggesting that the GOP’s decisive takeover of the Senate could pave the way for bipartisan breakthroughs. But just two weeks after the election, that optimism largely has faded, making it increasingly likely that Washington will churn through two more years of gridlock.


President Barack Obama waves from Air Force One as he arrives at Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, on Sunday after an Asian tour.

Republicans attribute the swift shift in tone largely to Obama’s plans to move forward with executive actions on immigration that potentially could shield from deportation about 5 million immigrants who are living in the United States illegally. The president has pledged to announce the measures before year’s end; he could act shortly after returning to Washington. The incoming Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has warned that such executive actions would “poison the well” with the new Republicanled Senate and could prevent the GOP from working with Obama on other potential areas of agreement. Republican leaders are considering what to do if Obama presses ahead. More conservative members want to use upcoming spending bills to block the president, but that could set the stage for a showdown for another government shutdown. Obama said that possible

threat would not dictate his timing in flexing his powers. He said is main concern “is getting it right.” The fight over the Keystone XL pipeline that would run from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast also has political implications for the president, not just with Republicans but also his own Democratic Party. Democrats see passage of a bill forcing construction of the project as a last-ditch effort to save Sen. Mary Landrieu, who faces a runoff election next month against GOP Rep. Bill Cassidy in oil-producing Louisiana. The House passed a measure to move the project forward on Friday, and the Senate is set to act. But Obama has all but threatened a veto, repeatedly saying the only way the pipeline can be approved is after the completion of a long-stalled State Department review. “We have to let the process play out,” he said. On Iran, Obama faces a deadline to reach a final

agreement in sensitive nuclear negotiations. High-level talks in Oman last week failed to make major headway, potentially setting Obama up for a choice between pursuing another extension or abandoning the diplomatic effort. The president has asked the Congress to start debating a new authorization for his airstrike campaign against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, though he expects the legislative effort to pick up next year when Republicans take control of the Senate. The debate comes as Obama faces questions from within his own administration, including from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, about the effectiveness of the military operation, particularly in Syria. Hagel said in a memo to White House national security adviser Susan Rice that Obama needed a clearer strategy for dealing with embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad. White House officials have denied that Obama is undertaking any formal review of his Syria strategy and the president said Sunday that he was not considering ways to oust Assad. Also on the agenda: getting the Senate to confirm his nominee for attorney general, federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch. The White House is not pushing for that in the postelection session of Congress, and says the president is leaving the timing up to Senate leadership. Democrats are reluctant to push a fight with an empowered GOP over the process and White House officials say they are confident Lynch will be confirmed even with Republicans in control. The GOP takes over in January.


College student from Woodinville killed McMINNVILLE, Ore. — A 20-yearold Oregon college student was killed in what police believe was a random stabbing at a convenience store, and officers said they shot and killed the suspect when he returned to the scene and menaced them with a knife. Linfield College president Thomas Hellie identified the victim as Parker Moore, a Woodinville native who was majoring in business management. Moore also served as a resident adviser and played linebacker on the football team. “We are all still in shock, but we know that it is important to speak to counselors, to support each other as we mourn, and to think about and pray for Parker’s family and friends,” Hellie wrote in a message on the school’s website. “We have lost a valued, important member of our community and all of us share in the grief.” The stabbing happened just after 11 p.m. Saturday at a 7-Eleven near campus. It wasn’t clear what prompted the stabbing.

N.Y.: Subway death A man standing with his wife on a Bronx subway platform was pushed onto the tracks Sunday morning by another man and was struck and killed by an oncoming train, police said. The assailant fled. Police said an unidentified man pushed Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, of the Bronx off the platform at the Grand Concourse and East 167th Street station in the Highbridge neighborhood, an act that appeared to be unprovoked. Kwok was struck by a southbound D train at around 8:40 a.m. and pronounced dead at the scene; his death was classified a homicide. His wife was not injured.

Screenings for Mali travelers Travelers from Mali will be subject to the same screening and monitoring that was ordered for people arriving from three other Ebola-affected countries, U.S. health officials said Sunday. Mali is not suffering widespread Ebola illnesses. But federal officials are growing increasingly alarmed about a new cluster of seven illnesses in Mali that have left health public health workers scrambling to track and monitor at least 450 other people who may have had contact with the seven people and may be at risk.

Colo.: Edible pot rules Saying they’re still worried that edible pot sweets are too attractive to kids, Colorado health authorities plan to ask Monday for a new panel to decide which marijuana foods and drinks look too much like regular snacks. A Health Department recommendation, obtained by The Associated Press in advance of a final meeting Monday on edible marijuana regulations, suggests a new state commission to give “premarket approval” before food or drinks containing pot can be sold. The recommendation comes a month after the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment suggested banning the sale of most kinds of edible pot. That suggestion was quickly retracted after it went public.

AROUND THE WORLD Japan: Economy sours Japan reported Monday that its economy contracted at a real annual rate of 1.6 percent in July-September, in a second straight quarterly decline that returned the country to recession. A steep drop in residential investment failed to offset a modest recovery in exports, the government reported. Most economists had forecast the world’s third-biggest economy expanded at about a 2 percent pace. The negative growth figure was much lower than expected and makes it very likely Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will delay implementation of a sales tax hike planned for October 2015.

Romania: PM concedes Thousands of people gathered in Bucharest to celebrate after Romania’s prime minister conceded defeat Sunday night in a presidential runoff against an ethnic German Transylvanian mayor. Prime Minister Victor Ponta had been the favorite to win, but was defeated by Klaus Iohannis, the mayor of the city of Sibiu who promised to crackdown on corruption. Ponta said he had personally congratulated Iohannis. “We are a democratic country,” Ponta said outside the headquarters of his Social Democratic Party two hours after polls closed. “The people are always right.” From Herald news services

Bank hooked on fishing partners At age 24, they’re having new boat built for Alaska By Jim Davis Herald Business Journal

They seem like an unlikely pair to be buying a half-million-dollar boat and heading to Alaska to fish commercially. For one, they’re both just 24 years old. But Jeffrey Ludwig and Matt DeWitte already have a combined 15 years of fishing experience, hold well-paying jobs in the maritime industry and already possess an expensive commercial licensing permit. And Ludwig was born into the industry. “I grew up with it, I saw my dad doing it and I always wanted to own my own operation,” Ludwig said. “It’s a business and there’s risk with any business. That being said, it’s really fun and it’s a cool job to do.” Their story led Mountain Pacific Bank in Everett to back them. From the bank’s perspective, lending money to the pair isn’t a risk, because they’ve already demonstrated an ability to make a commitment and follow through on it, said Aaron Overland, the Mountain Pacific lending officer. “If you have confidence in the borrowers and their expertise in the industry and you have confidence in the (boat builder) and their expertise in the industry then it’s just a make-sense proposition,” Overland said. If all goes well, the pair will take possession in April of a 32-foot sternpicker being built by Mavrik Marine in La Conner, transport it to Bristol Bay in Alaska and start fishing by next summer. Jeffrey Ludwig, who is from Arlington, is following in the footsteps of his dad, Joel Ludwig, who fishes for sockeye salmon with his boat, the Match Point. In 2002, Joel Ludwig took his sons, Jeffrey, then 12, and Peter, then 10, out for the summer to fish commercially, giving them work and a share of the profits. Jeffrey could have taken cash or put his money toward one of his dad’s commercial fishing permits. He chose the latter.


Jeff Ludwig, 24, visits Mavrik Marine in La Conner, where his 32-foot fishing boat is under construction. Ludwig and his business partner, Matt DeWitte, received a loan from Mountain Pacific Bank to help finance the boat.

“It’s just as well. I would have probably just blown it as a young kid,” Jeffrey Ludwig said. Every summer, Jeffrey Ludwig went with his father to fish in June and July, not only learning the business, but also earning money for that permit. His father was selling it to him for the $60,000 that he bought it for. In the summer of 2006, DeWitte, who went to Arlington High School with Jeffrey Ludwig, joined the crew. Jeffrey Ludwig recalls skiing with his dad and family on Mount Baker when they saw DeWitte. “My dad conducted a five or 10 minute interview up there and he said, ‘You’re hired,’ ”Jeffrey Ludwig said. DeWitte only vaguely remembers the conversation. But he found a calling with that summer job and job shadow on a boat the year before. After high school,

Ludwig headed to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Great Neck, New York, and DeWitte went to the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo, Calif. After graduating,they both got jobs in 2013 working on an oil rig for United Kingdom-based ENSCO in the Gulf of Mexico. They serve as third mates on a floating oil rig drilling in water 6,230 feet deep. They work onboard the rig for three weeks and then fly back to the Northwest for three weeks off. This summer, DeWitte worked a couple of weeks on a fishing boat in Alaska for the first time in a couple of years. He realized how much he missed fishing. “After the season, it really hit me that I wanted to buy into the fishery,” DeWitte said in an email. “Jeffrey and I had discussed the possibility of buying a boat together a few years prior. For

me, this was kind of a last chance opportunity to buy a boat.” DeWitte had been about to buy a house at Lake Goodwin. Instead, he and Ludwig pooled their savings together to make the down payment on a boat. They created their business plan on a flight to their work. They set up a business named DeWitte & Ludwig Fisheries. Their accountant suggested that they approach Mountain Pacific. DeWitte and Ludwig felt they could make a compelling case for a loan, despite their age. “We both make north of a 100k a year in the oil field and we come from a successful fishing group,” Jeffrey Ludwig said. “My dad and his 10 other guys in his fishing group are consistently among the top producers in Bristol Bay.” Loaning to the fishing industry has been an area of emphasis

for Mountain Pacific since 2010, said Mountain Pacific CEO Mark Duffy. The bank has even opened a loan office in Ballard to be closer to potential clients. Duffy said they felt comfortable with Ludwig and DeWitte from the beginning. “We were impressed with their story and they had a good plan,” Duffy said. Ludwig and DeWitte considered their options for a boat before deciding to get one built by Mavrik Marine. “We played around with the idea of getting a used boat, but it’s a pretty tired fleet up in Bristol Bay,” Jeffrey Ludwig said. Now they just need to name the boat. “Ooh, gosh we haven’t really had any chance to think about that,” Jeffrey Ludwig said. “We’ve got a list. We’re going to keep it under wraps.”

Why your business needs to celebrate Small Business Saturday By Pat Sisneros Special to The Herald


biz bits

ave you noticed the commercials advertising Small Business Saturday on Nov. 29? In 2010, American Express founded a national day for small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This is a day when people are encouraged to shop at their local small businesses. Of course, the cynic in me asks, why isn’t everyday a small business day? Why only one day out of 365? On the other hand, in the American tradition of a national day for this or a national day for that, why not have a special day to celebrate small businesses across the country? Maybe American Express has stumbled onto a great idea, given that small enterprises are the

main drivers of job creation and innovation. My suggestion for small businesses is to see Small Business Saturday as an opportunity and take advantage of the publicity from the American Express’ national advertising campaign. Chances are you’ll see a few more new and returning customers on Nov. 29 after they’ve had their fill doing battle shopping at the big box stores on Black Friday. Consider doing the following on the 29th: Give a special thank you to your customers for shopping on Small Business Saturday and all year round. For the folks coming through your doors, that day could have been spent shopping at the mall or on the computer with large online retailers. Let them know how much you appreciate their support of your

IN OUR VIEW | Everett Community Streets Initiative

Solutions ready for our support The intention is to address the causes rather than continue to treat the symptoms. Two major initiatives in Snohomish County are attempting to go beneath the surface and find solutions to the root sources of homelessness, addiction, crime and the cycle of poverty in our communities. Project 99, a collaboration among county law enforcement, county code officials, social workers and other county and state officials, is attempting to connect some of those arrested for nonviolent offenses with treatment, housing and other programs, rather than leaving jail as the only option. “We can’t simply arrest our way out of this problem,” said sheriff’s Lt. Rob Palmer, in

Herald Writer Erik Stevick’s Sunday story about Project 99. At the same time, the Everett Community Streets Initiative and its task force of 29 business, social service and community leaders last week wrapped up a process launched by Mayor Ray Stephanson in July and has prepared a report with more than 60 strategies that will be presented Wednesday to the Everett City Council, as reported by Herald Writer Chris Winters in Saturday’s Herald. Implementation of those suggestion will now follow in the coming months. Some of the suggestions are as simple as the county jail changing its release time from midnight to a time when social services are open and available, implementation of work crews rather than jail time

and fines for some offenses and consolidating locations of church feeding programs. Others will taken an investment of resources, such as construction of a detox facility in the south county, expansion of drop-in centers and the implementation of affordable housing programs through a housing levy, similar to what has been done in Bellingham and Seattle. Stephanson, in thanking the task force for its work on Thursday, took on some political risk in suggesting voters be asked to support such an effort. Bellingham’s housing levy, passed two years ago, is expected to raise $21 million in seven years for programs such as rental assistance and construction of affordable housing. For the owner of a $250,000

and that is good for us all. The editorial claims that net neutrality will help startups, but instead it is these startups that cannot fight or pay for a regulation department within their company to keep up with the new rules that the FCC will place on the Internet. The Internet already regulates itself to some degree; if there were no bandwidth throttling, then the amount of porn video sites alone would slow the internet to a Seattle morning commute speed. The Pacific Northwest is the central hub of Internet and the technology revolution, involving excessive government regulation into this market will only slow innovation, delay new companies and products, and limit our freedom of speech.


home, the levy adds about $90 a year to the property tax bill. A similar investment here could go a long way to addressing a web of social problems. None of this can be done effectively only within the borders of Everett. The county and its cities should consider Everett’s effort a template they can follow, if not join in partnership. Failing to address these problems widely would likely just displace the problems rather than resolve them. Each idea needs to be given careful consideration with an eye toward how best to implement it. Stephanson promised the task force its report would not gather dust on a shelf. To bring change to our streets, each idea needs our backing and our effort.


Regulation will hurt innovation The Nov. 12 editorial, “Keep flow of information open,” attempts to demonize private businesses that provide our Internet services and with it Sen. Ted Cruz. The editorial claims that net neutrality will keep the playing field even, keep the Internet available for startups and be best for free exchange of information, but it is completely off-base. The Internet is an incredible success in free speech, antiregulation, entrepreneurship, and innovation — any government interference would limit free speech and stifle innovation. Net neutrality is being sold by the big-government extremists as a way to make all content available to all, but instead it opens the door for the Federal Communications Commission to enforce rules on content and website availability, instead of leaving it open for all to use. It is disheartening to read a newspaper editorial support the government interfering in our last bastion of free and open expression. Whether you are Democrat, Republican, or any other party, you cannot support government regulating another part of our free speech. The FCC has no justification to regulate the Internet. Will some websites pay more to get their bandwidth expanded? I am sure they do and that is a good thing. The few sites that pay extra for this allows cable providers to invest in expanding their infrastructure

Panhandlers ruining store What is it going to take for the Everett Police Department to crack down on the loiterers constantly hanging around outside the QFC on Broadway? Every time I go to that store to shop, I am approached by panhandlers begging for money or there is a group of people hanging outside looking for drugs. It is atrocious, and I am flabbergasted that this type of thing continuously occurs at that store. I refuse to even shop there anymore because of these rampant problems.

A partial solution to funding our schools By Don Healy


he residents of Washington have just passed Referendum 1351, which mandates a reduction in class size without providing for the funding to accomplish this objective. This funding burden is added to the existing problem of obtaining funding for current education needs for which the current Washington Legislature is already being threatened with contempt of court by the State Supreme Court for not meeting the requirements of the state constitution. Obviously, we are failing as a state to adequately provide for the education needs of the youth of our state. There is at least a partial solution to this dilemma which will solve additional problem as well. Since 1908, the U. S. Forest Service, as required by law, has provided 25 percent of its receipts from the sale, lease, rental, or other fees for using the national forests, to be used for roads and schools in the counties where the national forests are located. Up until the late 1970s, the revenue from timber harvests provided large

sums of money to local school districts. However, by the late 1970s, environment groups, through court actions, essentially halted timber harvests on federal lands in the United States. Since that time, there have been virtually no timber harvests on federal lands. In the past 34 years, our forest inventory has continued to grow and we currently have more standing timber than we did in 1950. However, without harvesting and applying silvicultural treatments such as thinning, and as a result of our prior fire suppression policies, the health of our forests has declined precipitously due to over-crowding and stagnation. This has led to massive insect infestations such as the mountain pine beetle, which created conditions ideal for the massive forest fires that we are seeing each summer. The health of our forest could be dramatically improved by thinning and selective partial cutting. Ironically, while we have greatly reduced our timber harvests in the United States, we have not reduced our consumption of wood products. Last year, we imported $14,710,000,000 worth

of lumber, up from $12,420,000,000 in 2012; a high percentage from Canada, but some from as far away as New Zealand and Finland. We preach a mantra regarding farm products of buying locally whenever possible. Should we not apply the same thought process to forest products as well? The multiplier effect from lumber production is about seven times, which means that were we to produce that $14.7 billion worth of lumber and wood products domestically, it would provide a $103 billion stimulus to our nation’s economy. I will leave it to the economists to estimate the precise increased revenue that would flow to our schools from the 25 percent of the stumpage rate, but the impact would be substantial. Factoring in the increase in employment levels, B & O taxes, and property taxes, the overall benefit would be much greater yet. We would also have the added benefit of having healthier and more productive forests. I believe the merits of this proposal are well worth considering. Don Healy lives in Lynnwood.

Pelosi’s problem isn’t age, gender; it’s partisanship


here are five 2014 House races still to be decided before we can answer a question of historical interest: Was this the worst election for House Democrats since 1928? Or merely their worst since 1946? Either way, the results do not reflect well on the House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi — a conclusion DANA MILBANK that seems to have escaped Nancy Pelosi. “I do not believe what happened the other night is a wave,” the former speaker informed Politico’s Lauren French and John Bresnahan last week. She preferred to describe the election as “an ebb tide.” If Democrats lose three of the five undecided races, they will have ebbed all the way back to the day Herbert Hoover won the presidency. To fail to see that as a wave, Pelosi must be far out at sea. The drubbing and the denial have naturally raised doubts about whether Pelosi should remain on the job. But her interpretation was the opposite. “Quite frankly, if we would have won, I would have thought about leaving,” Pelosi told Politico. But because of the, er, ebb, she needs to stay — a classic argument for rewarding failure. Pelosi is popular in her caucus, and there’s no indication she’ll be deposed in leadership elections next week. But it was certainly fair when Nancy Cordes of CBS News asked Pelosi at a news conference Thursday if she “gave any thought to stepping down as the leader.” Pelosi’s jaw-dropping response: that Cordes was being sexist — and discriminating against Pelosi because of her age. “What was the day,” she replied to Cordes, “that any of you said to Mitch McConnell when they lost the Senate three times in a row ... ‘Aren’t you getting a little old, Mitch? Shouldn’t you step aside?’” It’s “interesting as a woman to see how many times that question is asked of a woman and how many times that question is never asked of Mitch McConnell,” Pelosi added. She was just warming up. “I was never on the front of Time magazine even though I was the first woman — wasn’t that a curiosity? That the Republicans win and (Speaker John) Boehner’s on the front of Time magazine. Mitch McConnell wins, he’s on the front of Time magazine. ... As a woman, it’s like, is there a message here?” Pelosi’s 8-year-old grievance with the newsmagazine is reasonable, if a bit small coming from somebody who has earned her place in history as the first female speaker of the House. As for McConnell’s treatment, here’s his home-state Louisville Courier-Journal in 2012: “He has failed utterly, a stunning failure driven home by Mr. Obama’s decisive win Tuesday. ... Mr. McConnell should resign as Senate minority leader. If he refuses, his members should oust him.” There were similar questions about whether McConnell would keep his job in 2010 and before this year’s results. Love Pelosi or hate her, she is a savvy legislator, and it’s not her fault that Democrats lost again. Gerrymandering and other factors will probably keep the House Republican into the next decade. But there’s something to be said for fresh faces. Harry Reid, who just lost his perch as Senate majority leader, shrewdly persuaded the populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to join his leadership team. Yet there is no sign of movement among Democratic leaders in the House, where Pelosi, Whip Steny Hoyer and No. 3 Jim Clyburn are all in their mid-70s. If Pelosi has a problem, it’s not her gender or her age but her image as a partisan warrior that Republicans have demonized. Long after she unwisely said of the Affordable Care Act that “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,” she still defended the remark. At Thursday’s news conference, Chad Pergram of Fox News asked about recently discovered remarks by Jonathan Gruber, a consultant to the administration on Obamacare, who said the law exploited “the stupidity of the American voter.” Pelosi replied, correctly, that Gruber’s “comments were a year old, and he has backtracked.” But then she went too far. “I don’t know who he is,” she said. In fact, Pelosi’s office cited Gruber in a 2009 press release, and Pelosi herself, during a 2009 news conference, referred to Gruber and an analysis he had done. Sometimes, the mark of a strong leader is knowing when to stop. Dana Milbank is a Washington Post columnist.

Drive From Page A1

Magic Shears Styling Salon, owned by Debbie, 57, and her husband,Randy, 60, has a drop box for new lap blankets, hats, activity books, stationary and pens, coloring books, toys and other small activities. The items are donated to Cascade Valley Hospital for oncology and other departments where patients and their families spend hours at a time in the hospital. Debbie remembers long days during Cameron’s chemotherapy. He had a hard time staying warm, and the family struggled to entertain themselves and keep their minds off the cancer. Her goal is to make sure other families have warmth and fun when they need it most. Debbie plans to keep the box in the salon, at 306 N. Olympic Ave., until Dec. 20. People can stop by any day of the week to drop off donations or call 360-4353833 for more information.

A handful of families work with the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation on memorial drives and fundraisers, but it’s not common and the donations are always needed, foundation spokeswoman Heather Logan said. Last year, the donations from Magic Shears included brand new toys that went to children in the emergency ward. “In an emergency, parents don’t have time to grab a toy or a game, they just have to get their kid to the hospital,” Logan said. “These donations make a difference. That kind of sensitivity to patients, especially children, is great.” All of the gifts are used at the hospital, so the donations stay with local families, Logan said. Debbie thinks Cameron would like to be remembered through kindness and generosity. She carries a photo of him, a bright smile on his stubbled face, in her wallet. She walks in the Relay for Life every year wearing his letterman jacket. Cameron’s friends from high school still stop by the salon or the Howell’s home

in Darrington to check in on them. Their son was wellliked, and his friends have provided constant support for the family, Debbie said. “I didn’t want to do a Christmas tree the year we lost him, but his buddies came by and said, ‘You will have a tree,’” she recalled. Cameron’s friends have hauled a Christmas tree to the house every year since. Others drop by with flowers and gifts on Mother’s or Father’s Day. Some have named their babies after him. “We have three girls and three boys named Cameron, so we get to watch them grow,” Debbie said. The Howells knew they were part of a generous community, but the response after Cameron was diagnosed shocked and humbled them. Dances in Arlington and Darrington brought in thousands of dollars, as did change jars at Magic Shears and other local businesses. The community helped pay Cameron’s medical expenses. What wasn’t covered was given, Debbie said. Some doctors volunteered their time, and

a local pharmacist provided medicine for free. Debbie and Randy, high school sweethearts who have owned Magic Shears for 35 years, started collecting donations the November after their son died. A friend suggested the drive, and it

seemed like a good a way to pay forward the kindness that was shown to the family. For about six years, they donated to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. For the last four years, the family has given to Cascade Valley Hospital.

“I just tell everybody to give your kids a big hug and love them because you never know,” Debbie said. “Things happen. We were a really close-knit family. Cancer took a lot from us.” Kari Bray: kbray@; 425-339-3439

Hayashida, among first Japanese-American internees, dies By Elaine Woo Los Angeles Times

The woman’s name was unknown, but the picture of her cradling a sleeping baby girl came to symbolize a troubling chapter in American history. Fumiko Hayashida, a 31-year-old JapaneseAmerican from Bainbridge Island was photographed in March 1942 waiting for a ferry to the mainland, the first leg of a journey that would end behind barbed wire. She and her daughter were labeled like suitcases, with ID tags hanging from strings tied to their coats.

Hayashida was among the first group of JapaneseAmericans forced from their homes by federal authorities and shipped to distant internment camps after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. She was unaware that her exile had been recorded by a photographer for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Decades later, the image of the mother and her child was widely circulated in campaigns pressing the federal government to make amends for the wartime incarceration of more than 110,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast. In

her 80s, Hayashida stepped into the spotlight to tell the story behind the heartrending photo, which was reproduced on fliers and shown in traveling Smithsonian exhibitions. “She was nobody and yet she was everybody,” Natalie Ong, the baby captured in the iconic photo, said Friday about her mother, who died of natural causes Nov. 2 in Seattle. She was 103. At 95, Hayashida testified in Washington, D.C., before a House subcommittee, urging lawmakers to never forget the injustice that was done to loyal citizens during World War II. Her

testimony is part of a 2009 documentary, “Fumiko Hayashida: The Woman Behind the Symbol,” directed by Lucy Ostrander. Born on Jan. 21, 1911, Hayashida was the fourth of nine children of Japanese immigrants who grew strawberries on Bainbridge Island. She was sent to live in Japan for part of her childhood, returning to the United States in 1923 when she was 12. She graduated from Bainbridge High School in 1933. In 1938 she married Saburo Hayashida, a fellow second-generation Japanese-American. They

began farming berries and within a few years started a family. On Dec. 7, 1941, they were at home reading the Sunday paper when they heard the news that Japanese bombers had struck Pearl Harbor. Hayashida remembered feeling disbelief — and anger. “I wondered to myself: What is wrong with Japan?” she said in her remarks to the House subcommittee in 2006. “I was so mad at Japan. I thought that Japan must know that they can’t win a war against America. ... I knew that we were a much stronger country.”

But her emotions quickly shifted to fear. “I realized,” she said, “that I now had the face of the enemy.” Three months after the attack, the U.S. Army arrived on Bainbridge Island to begin carrying out President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066, which authorized the mass internment. The very first group of Japanese-Americans removed under the order were 227 Bainbridge residents, including the Hayashida family. They had only six days to find caretakers for their property and settle their affairs.

SCHOOL WINNERS Jackson gets back to musical roots Jackson High School jazz students recently created musical instruments out of an unlikely medium: carrots. Lesley Moffat, Jackson’s director of bands, jazz and percussion, designed the ice breaker activity for a recent camp retreat based on a TED Talk, and enlisting the services of Jackson senior Ben Lee (who demonstrated his prior experience with drawing music from a root vegetable) and physics teacher Andrew Sevald. Sevald gave a mini-lecture on the physics behind the activity, then students and Jackson Principal Dave Peters crafted their own “carrotnets.” Teams then competed for the best sound. First place went to My Drillz, made up of Landon Spaw and Connor Hittle. See a short video of Lee’s demonstration at ehKEY38Zw_4.

Parental hovering delays kids’ adulthood By John Rosemond McClatchy-Tribune News Service


hy are young adult children emancipating so much later than they did in 1970, when the average age of male emancipation (independent living, paying one’s own bills) was 21? Why do significant numbers of college professors and even employers complain about parents of young adult students/ employees confronting them over, respectively, bad grades and workplace issues? Why have reduced class sizes and increased per-pupil expenditures not resulted in higher academic achievement levels? Why is the mental health of today’s kids so poor when compared with that of children in the 1960s and before? Why has school phobia, test anxiety, and separation anxiety become so problematic in early elementary-age populations, when those problems were extremely rare 50-plus years ago? Why do today’s parents become defensive when told by teachers that their children have misbehaved in school? The answer is in two words: parent involvement. Those two words summarize the difference between “old” child rearing and

nouveau, post-1960s parenting. Prior to the psychological parenting revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the overall philosophy was that parents were not to be highly involved with their kids. They supervised well and were available in case of crisis, but they stood a safe distance from their kids and allowed them to experience the inestimable benefits of the trial-and-error process. They gave their children long ropes and made them lie in the beds they made and stew in their own juices. It was the child’s job, back then, to keep his or her parents from getting involved. That was how children learned to be responsible and sturdy. Today’s parents, by contrast, give short ropes, lie in their children’s beds (literally!), and stew in their children’s juices. They organize their children’s games, social lives and after-school activities. They help their kids with homework, help them study for tests, mediate their conflicts with peers, and, well, get involved. This is a surefire recipe for kids who are not sturdy. These are parents who are confused when it comes to an understanding of their purpose in their kids’ lives. Their involvement leads them to personalize

everything that happens to their kids; thus, the defensiveness. But given that schools and mental health professionals have been pushing parent involvement for nearly four decades, the confusion and defensiveness are understandable. Researchers at Duke and the University of Texas analyzed three decades of data pertaining to parent participation in children’s academics. Their conclusions confirmed what I’ve been saying since the 1980s: parental help with homework lowers a child’s academic achievement and is not reflected on standardized tests. I propose that the same relationship between parent participation and child success is true no matter the context. Parents who manage a child’s social life interfere with the development of good social skills. Parents who manage a child’s afterschool activities grow kids who don’t know how to fill their own free time. Parents who get involved in their kids’ conflicts with peers grow kids who don’t know how to avoid much less solve conflict. These unsturdy kids have anxieties and fears of all sorts and don’t want to leave home. And their parents, when the time comes, don’t know how to stop being parents.

Dear Abby: My husband and I are pregnant with our first child. We are beyond excited and can’t wait for our little one to get here. Our problem: My motherin-law is getting married two weeks after our baby is supposed to arrive, and she’s expecting all of us to go. While I’m happy she has found someone she wants to spend her life with, I will not be there and neither will our child. I have told my husband this and explained my concerns, but I will support him if he decides to go since it’s his mother. How can I turn her down in a polite way so it doesn’t sound like I’m a horrible daughter-in-law? — FirstTime Mama Dear First-Time Mama: Unless a woman is having a C-section, babies don’t always arrive on the expected due date. Sometimes they can be a week late — or more. If you feel you need time to rest, recuperate and get your child on a regular nursing schedule, tell that to your mother-in-law. As a new mother you are going to have to quickly learn to prioritize, and your child’s well-being and your health must come first. Expect her to be disappointed, but make clear that you love her and wish her a lifetime of happiness, but you will be unable to attend. Dear Abby: Is it OK for an older woman to wear fancy, colorful tights? My wife is 5 feet tall and weighs 110. She’s in good health and works out at the gym regularly.

Patty Duke to play twins, 50 years later Patty Duke is playing twins on TV again, this time as a pair of grandmas on the Disney Channel. The 67-year-old actress will guest star on an upcoming episode of “Liv and Maddie,” which follows twin sisters played by actress Dove Cameron. Duke said her grandchildren are fans of the show, and while she never expected to play twins again, she felt a twinge of jealousy when she saw Cameron doing it. “I won’t lie,” Duke said. “When (the show) came on the air, there was a part of me that said, ‘I want to do that!”’ Duke famously played “identical cousins” on her namesake sitcom that


Patty Duke played “identical cousins” in her early 1960s sitcom.

aired in the early 1960s. Producers of “Liv and Maddie” said they were inspired by Duke’s show and long hoped she’d appear on theirs. Cameron

studied all three seasons of “The Patty Duke Show” to prepare for her roles as twins, and said she cried when she learned she’d be working with Duke. “There’s really only one model for this show,” Cameron said. “I didn’t want to mess it up! I didn’t want to offend her.” Duke, who has continued to collect acting credits annually, said it was initially tough playing twins again, especially since one of her characters is pretending to be the other. But with Cameron and the writers’ help, she found her groove. “I could hear a little of the creak as the rust fell away,” Duke said. The episode will air

next year. Shooting twins for TV hasn’t changed much in the 50 years since Duke’s show ran, the actresses said. They still use body doubles and static sets, shooting everything twice so the actress can portray each twin. Only there are four cameras on “Liv and Maddie,” compared to just one when Duke’s show was shot. The two actresses loved sharing the set. “They say you should never meet your heroes,” Cameron said, “but she’s gone from a hero to a really, really great friend and mentor.” Duke said simply: “It is an awesome experience.” Sandy Cohen, Associated Press

Sall’s interest in chasing down marquee names, rather than marquee performances, makes this a gigantic missed opportunity. Sall enlists McCartney’s current backup band to fill the same role on this 34-song effort (42 with the deluxe package). The result is musical consistency — consistently generic. He recruits primarily legacy artists whose best work is behind them, often decades behind. Billy Joel opens both discs

Various artists, “The Art of McCartney” (Arctic Poppy) This two-disc Paul McCartney tribute is a decade-in-the-making labor of love by one man, producer Ralph Sall. So it

with songs (“Maybe I’m Amazed” and “Live and Let Die”) that are beyond his range now. And, trust us, the world doesn’t need to hear Steve Miller sing “Hey Jude” or Alice Cooper do “Eleanor Rigby.” To be sure, there are fun moments, like Bob Dylan croaking through “Things We Said Today” and Brian Wilson’s shimmering take on “Wanderlust.” The compositions are excellent, even if the performances don’t always rise to that level. But you knew that going in. Bringing in some

current and more diverse artists — maybe a Katy Perry or Pharrell — and letting them interpret the music freed from a band with its own preconceptions would have been infinitely more interesting. So would digging further into McCartney’s vast catalog, including some work he’s done this century. While musical adventurousness is risky, the rewards are greater. McCartney’s legacy deserved a more challenging environment. David Bauder, Associated Press

Damien Rice’s ‘Favourite Faded Fantasy’ is a lovely reality Damien Rice, “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” (Warner) Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice says the creative process behind his

third studio album “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” was so good that occasionally he didn’t want it to end. Thankfully it did, because now we get to enjoy a

well-crafted work with few holes. Rice’s emotive voice and signature solid guitar work are a known quantity. Those talents are coupled here with carefully optimistic songs about life and love. There’s a touch of humor thrown in the mix, but not so much as to detract from pressing matters of the heart. The songs are long, with the lovely “Trusty And True” weighing in at eight minutes, nine seconds.

Savor every second because talents as pure as Damien Rice don’t come along every other Tuesday. Ron Harris, Associated Press

SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY 50 years ago (1964) Kyochi Doi, mayor of Everett’s sister city in Japan, Iwakuni, was visiting Everett. Out in force to meet with him were former mayor George Gebert, Mayor Bud Alexander, Finance Commissioner Mildred Simpson and Public Works Commissioner Gerry Krekow. Jay and Evelyn Overton had purchased the new Mobile Manor just north of Marysville and were busy preparing and landscaping more spaces for additional rentals. Twenty new spaces had been added already, bringing to a total of 50 in the park. The Overtons catered to residential “permanents” rather than overnight guests.

25 years ago (1989) The Herald advertising department saluted community businesses. They were La Hacienda, 607 SE Everett Mall Way; Gerry Andal’s Ranch Restaurant, 620 SE Everett Mall Way; Big Wheel Auto Parts, 12720 4th Ave. W, and Fred Astaire Dance Studios, 4400 168th St. SW in Lynnwood. Martha Anderson of Anderson Farm in east Everett gave some loving attention to Carmeleta, a two-month-old llama that was born prematurely. Anderson said caring for Carmeleta was worse than having a baby. She had to tube-feed the tiny llama every two hours at first. By Jack O’Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Monday, Nov. 17, the 321st day of 2014. There are 44 days left in the year. Today’s highlight: On Nov. 17, 1889, the Union Pacific Railroad Co. began direct, daily railroad service between Chicago and Portland, Oregon, as well as Chicago and San Francisco. On this date: In 1558, Elizabeth I acceded to the English throne upon the death of Queen Mary. In 1800, Congress held its first session in Washington in the partially completed Capitol building.

In 1869, the Suez Canal opened in Egypt. In 1973, President Richard Nixon told Associated Press managing editors in Orlando, Florida: “People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.” In 2004, Washington officials said Republican gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi led Democratic opponent Christine Gregoire by only 261 votes. (After three counts of the ballots, Gregoire was declared the winner by just 129 votes out of 2.9 million cast.) Associated Press

The Annual Action Plan describes how certain grant funds will be used during the year to help meet the five-year goals set forth in the Consortium’s 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan. The sources of grant funds include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs. The Annual Action Plan includes funding allocations to specific activities. The funds are used to provide support for affordable housing projects and community development projects (public facility improvements, infrastructure improvements, and public services) which principally benefit low- and moderate-income households and neighborhoods within the county. A substantial amendment to an Annual Action Plan is sometimes needed after the plan has been adopted. On such occasions, the County publishes notice of the proposed substantial amendment and provides the public with at least 30 days to comment. This notice serves this requirement for the proposed substantial amendment summarized below. Identification of Project Site in Everett for Parkview Services Parkview Homes XI Project The Parkview Services - Parkview Homes XI project consists of the acquisition and adaptive rehabilitation of one single family home with three bedrooms to provide permanent supportive rental housing for three adults with developmental disabilities with incomes at or below 30% of the area median income. On-site 24/7 supportive services are anticipated to be provided by other nonprofit organizations contracted by the Developmental Disabilities Administration. The project was awarded $59,736 in CDBG funds in the 2014 Action Plan, including $55,500 to Parkview Services for project costs and $4,236 for Snohomish County project-related activity delivery costs. At the time the 2014 Action Plan was adopted in May 2014, a specific site for the project had not been identified. A proposed project site has now been identified and is located at 825 93rd Street SE, Everett, WA 98208. This amendment would revise the project description to add the specific location of the project and would allow the project to remain on schedule for completion by June 2015. Public Review and Comment: All interested persons are encouraged to review and comment on the proposed substantial amendments. • A copy of the proposed amendment may also be viewed at the following locations: • on-line at • Everett Main Public Library branch and Snohomish County branches of the Sno-Isle Regional Library System, • Local city and town halls in Snohomish County, • Snohomish County Human Services Department, Division of Housing & Community Services, Snohomish County Administration Building West, Fourth Floor, 3000 Rockefeller Avenue, Everett, WA 98201, or • By requesting a copy (contact information listed below). • Written comments must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17, 2014.

Chiefs stop Seahawks


Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (24) stumbles in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Chiefs in Kansas City.

Injuries on defense, offense cost Hawks in loss to Chiefs


Are good — not great — Seahawks good enough to make NFL playoffs?

By Gregg Bell The News Tribune

By Dave Boling The News Tribune


ANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s wrong to think that Sunday’s loss to Kansas City marked the end of the great run of success by the Seattle Seahawks. Because, in the first place, you can’t credit the 2014 team with the Super Bowl win by its predecessor. This is a different team and a different group of players. Safety Earl Thomas made that point inadvertently in the locker room after the 24-20 loss at frigid Arrowhead Stadium. Thomas was wrong when he was critical of his own play, because he was brilliant in forcing two fumbles and serving as the back-line savior when many other Seahawks missed tackles. But he was so compellingly accurate when he said the Seahawks are “still a good football team.” That’s exactly what they are, at 6-4: A good football team. But “good” doesn’t get you back to the Super Bowl. And at this point, “good” may not get you back into the playoffs, either, especially when your final six See BOLING, Page C5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Their avalanche of ache finally caught up to the Seattle Seahawks. Will it cost them the chance to catch Arizona in the NFC West? Russell Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes and had key scrambles for gains late in the game. Marshawn Lynch had 124 yards rushing. But almost all of those came before two-time Pro Bowl ✓ Fourth and nothing C4 center Max Unger sus- ✓ Who is Tony Moeaki? C4 tained a high-ankle sprain and twisted ✓ Seahawks grades C4 knee 6 minutes into ✓ 5 things we learned C5 fourth quarter. ✓ Another odd day for Lynch C5 With fourth-stringer Patrick Lewis forced in at center, the Seahawks turned the ball over on downs three times in the final 7:11, including on a fourthand-2 and a fourth-and-1 from inside Kansas City’s 36-yard line. That — and the Chiefs steamrolling a Seahawks run defense missing Brandon Mebane in the middle — is how Seattle lost 24-20 Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium. “Heartbreaking loss,” Wilson said of a thudding end to the Seahawks’ three-game winning streak.

Federal drug enforcement agents showed up unannounced Sunday to check at least three visiting NFL teams’ medical staffs as part of an investigation into former players’ claims that teams mishandled prescription drugs.

There were no arrests, Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Rusty Payne said Sunday. The San Francisco 49ers’ staff was checked at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, after they played the New York Giants. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ staff was checked at BaltimoreWashington International airport

after playing the Redskins. The Seattle Seahawks, who played at Kansas City, confirmed via the team’s Twitter account that they were spot-checked as well. The operation was still ongoing, and other teams may be checked later Sunday, Payne said. “DEA agents are currently

interviewing NFL team doctors in several locations as part of an ongoing investigation into potential violations of the (Controlled Substances Act),” Payne said. The spot checks were done by investigators from the federal DEA. They did not target specific teams, but were done to measure whether visiting NFL

clubs were generally in compliance with federal law. Agents requested documentation from visiting teams’ medical staffs for any controlled substances in their possession, and for proof that doctors could practice medicine in the home team’s state. See DEA, Page C3

Herald staff PORTLAND, Ore. — The Everett Silvertips have had a strong start to the 2014-15 WHL season. However, they took one on the chin Sunday evening. Everett suffered its first blowout loss of the season as the Tips were thumped 7-1 by the Portland Winterhawks. Nicolas Petan and Alex Schoenborn both scored twice as Portland had its way with a weary Everett team playing its third game in three nights. The Tips also had to navigate most of the game without coach Kevin Constantine, who was ejected in the first period. Oliver Bjorkstrand, Blake Heinrich and Miles Koules also scored for Portland (9-11-0-3), which converted three times on

the power play and outshot the Tips 40-21 to avenge Friday’s 4-3 shootout loss in Everett. Brendan Burke earned the win in goal with 20 saves. Kohl Bauml scored the lone goal for Everett (14-3-2-1), which hadn’t lost by more than two goals this season. Austin Lotz stopped 24 of the 30 shots he faced during the first two periods, while Carter Hart stopped nine of 10 in relief. The game started well for Everett as the Tips grabbed the lead 6 minutes, 5 seconds in. Nikita Scherbak’s shot was saved, but Bauml put home the rebound to stake Everett to a 1-0 lead. But it all went sideways for the Tips during the second half of the first period. Portland tied it on the power play at 11:10 as Petan beat Lotz with a shot into

the top corner to tie it 1-1. Then a situation at 18:02, in which the Tips felt a penalty should have been called, led to a frantic stretch. Portland scored just 19 seconds after the non-call as Petan put home a rebound to give the Winterhawks the lead. In the aftermath, Constantine was given a penalty and ejected for arguing with the referee. Portland then scored on the resulting power play 26 seconds later, Bjorkstrand putting a shot in off the post to make it 3-1. The Winterhawks then turned it into a laugher in the second period. Portland scored its third power-play goal of the game at 13:16 when Heinrich put home a rebound. Then Koules made it 5-1 at 16:03 when he was left all alone in the slot. Schoenborn scored Portland’s sixth goal

Kevin Harvick celebrates after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship on Sunday.

Harvick wins Sprint Cup title By Jenna Fryer Associated Press

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — There was no trick to Kevin Harvick’s first Sprint Cup championship. Competing for the title against three other drivers, he seized his opportunity with a relentless dash through the field in the closing laps of the season finale. It was exactly what NASCAR was looking for when it revamped its playoff format this year to try to force drivers to win races. Harvick picked off car after car, and passed two other title contenders on a series of restarts as he aggressively chased both the victory and the title Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway. His desperate drive from 12th to first over the final 15 laps gave Harvick the championship over Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman and Joey Logano. All four were determined to claim their first career title, and all four raced to win — because winning, it turned out, mattered in this Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. “If you want to win the championship, you’re going to have to figure out how to win races,” Harvick said. “In the end, that’s what it came down to, was winning the race to win the championship. It all worked out.” The four drivers all found themselves racing each other at the front of the field after the sun went down on the 400-mile race. It was Hamlin, the Charlotte Bobcats season-ticket holder who had Michael Jordan cheering from his pit, who seemed to have the race in control until a caution with 20 laps to go. All four teams were forced to make tough strategy decisions

that ultimately decided their fate. Joe Gibbs Racing decided not to pit Hamlin, which moved him to second on the restart. Richard Childress Racing gave Ryan Newman two tires, while Harvick crew chief Rodney Childers made the risky call for four tires. Team Penske also had planned to give Joey Logano four tires, but a problem with the jack destroyed Logano’s chances and he plummeted from sixth to 21st, ending his championship bid. Harvick restarted 12th with 15 laps to go and not much time to pick his way through traffic. As Hamlin passed leader Jeff Gordon on the restart, Harvick shot past four cars to move to seventh. “The seas kind of parted down the backstretch and we were able to get three or four cars or six, I guess, or five. You’ve got a very short time to do it,” he said. “You had all the championship guys show up at the front of the pack. I was just going to hold the pedal down and hope for the best.” Then came another caution, and Hamlin, on old tires, knew he was in trouble. Harvick, on the four fresh tires, rocketed through the middle on the restart, dicing his way through traffic to pick up another four spots and move into second. “I loved our chances, but they weren’t there at the end,” Hamlin said. “Strategy is part of winning, and the strategy for us didn’t work out with the cautions.” Harvick got by Hamlin, then Newman passed Hamlin for second and the championship became a battle of drivers who had essentially swapped seats this year. There was one more caution, forcing Harvick to nail one final restart with three laps

remaining, and he eased his way ahead of Newman on his way to the win. The victory capped a magical first season at Stewart-Haas Racing, where Harvick moved this year after 13 seasons with Richard Childress that failed to produce a championship. Harvick, who had to win last week at Phoenix just to advance into Sunday’s final four, wrapped up his third victory of this Chase and fifth of the season. He leaned this week on team co-owner Tony Stewart, a three-time champion, and Jimmie Johnson, the six-time champion who moved from California to North Carolina to chase a career in NASCAR about the same time as Harvick made the move east. “Been trying for 13 years,” an emotional Harvick said. “This week ate me up. If it wasn’t for Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart, I would have been in bad trouble this week. Those guys really helped me get through the week. After every practice, Jimmie was in there, and in our team debriefs Tony was constantly telling me just to go race and that it’s just another race.” Stewart shared an emotional hug with Harvick, and then beamed during the celebration. “That’s about as emotional as you can get, to have one of your greatest friends go out in one of your race cars and win a championship in the toughest series in the country,” Stewart said. Newman, winless on the season, finished second. Hamlin faded to seventh and Logano was a distant 16th. Harvick’s wife, DeLana, sobbed on the pit stand and buried her head in her hands when Harvick crossed the finish line. She hugged Childers, who dabbed his eyes, before she made it down to the victory celebration.

Everett CC women win NWAC soccer title Herald staff TUKWILA — Alma Manao scored in the 80th minute to lead Everett Community College to a 1-0 victory over Peninsula College in the NWAC women’s soccer

Florida fires head coach Muschamp Associated Press GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Despite trying three coordinators and five quarterbacks, Will Muschamp never figured out one side of the ball at Florida. And it cost him his job. The Gators parted ways with Muschamp on Sunday, one day after a gut-wrenching loss to South Carolina that summed up the former defensive coordinator’s four-year tenure as head coach. Muschamp’s close-to-the-vest style proved to be too conservative and too unsuccessful for a school with three national champions, eight Southeastern Conference titles and sky-high expectations. Muschamp, who cleaned up a troubled program and made Florida one of the best defensive teams in the SEC, will stick around for the final two regularseason games against Eastern Kentucky and Florida State. He is 27-20, including 17-15 in conference play, in three-plus seasons in Gainesville. “Upon evaluation of our football program, we are not where the program needs to be and should be,” athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a statement. “I’ve always said that our goal at the University of Florida is to compete for championships on a regular basis. ... I will be forever grateful to Will and his staff for their unwavering commitment to the University of Florida and the mission of our athletic program.” The decision came less than 24 hours after a 23-20 loss to South Carolina in overtime.

“Our teams cooperated with the DEA today and we have no information to indicate that irregularities were found,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email. The nationwide probe is being directed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York — where the NFL is headquartered — but involves several U.S. attorney’s offices. The investigation was sparked by a lawsuit filed in May on behalf of former NFL players going back to 1968. The number of plaintiffs has grown to more than 1,200, including dozens who played as recently as 2012. Any violations of federal drug laws from 2009 forward could also become the subject of a criminal investigation

because they would not be subject to the five-year statute of limitations. “This is an unprecedented raid on a professional sports league,” said Steve Silverman, one of the attorneys for the former players. “I trust the evidence reviewed and validated leading up to this action was substantial and compelling.” Federal prosecutors have conducted interviews in at least three cities over the past three weeks, spending two days in Los Angeles in late October meeting with a half-dozen former players — including at least two who were named plaintiffs in the painkillers lawsuit, according to multiple people with direct knowledge of the meetings who spoke on the condition of anonymity because prosecutors told them not to comment on the meetings. The lawsuit alleges the NFL and its teams, physicians and trainers

acted without regard for players’ health, withholding information about injuries while at the same time handing out prescription painkillers such as Vicodin and Percocet, and anti-inflammatories such as Toradol, to mask pain and minimize lost playing time. The players contend some teams filled out prescriptions in players’ names without their knowledge or consent, then dispensed those drugs — according to one plaintiff’s lawyer — “like candy at Halloween,” along with combining them in “cocktails.” Several former players interviewed by The Associated Press described the line of teammates waiting to get injections on game day often spilling out from the training room. Others recounted flights home from games where trainers walked down the aisle and players held up a number of fingers to indicate how many pills they wanted. The controlled substance act

says only doctors and nurse practitioners can dispense prescription drugs, and only in states where they are licensed. The act also lays out stringent requirements for acquiring, labeling, storing and transporting drugs. Trainers who are not licensed would be in violation of the law simply by carrying a controlled substance. The former players have reported a range of debilitating effects, from chronic muscle and bone ailments to permanent nerve and organ damage to addiction. They contend those health problems came from drug use, but many of the conditions haven’t been definitively linked to painkillers. The lawsuit is currently being heard in the northern district of California, where presiding judge William Alsup said he wants to hear the NFL Players Association’s position on the case before deciding on the league’s motion to dismiss.

League attorneys also argued the issue should be addressed by the union, which negotiated a collective bargaining agreement that covers player health. The DEA investigation comes during a turbulent time for the NFL. The league is still weathering criticism over its treatment of several players accused of domestic violence and just wrapped up an arbitration hearing involving Ravens running back Ray Rice, who is contesting the length of his suspension. The league has hired former FBI director Robert Mueller III to investigate its handling of the Rice case. The NFL is also trying to finalize a $765 million class-action settlement reached in August 2013 over complaints by thousands of former players that the NFL concealed the risk of concussions.

Report Card Offense


The Seahawks moved the ball, gaining 372 yards and going a respectable 5 for 12 on third down, and again they were great on the ground rushing for 204 yards and a 5.5 per-carry average. But, and this is a big but, the Seahawks struggled in the red zone, settling for a pair of short field goals in the first half, then coming up empty on fourthand-goal late in the game. And obviously failing to convert on fourth-and-one late in the game was a killer. On the plus side, Russell Wilson was better after a couple of sub-par performances.



Two turnovers were a plus, with one of them leading to a touchdown, and the defense did get the stops it needed late in the fourth quarter to give the offense two chances at a winning drive. But early in the game the Seahawks could do nothing to stop Jamaal Charles and the rest of the Chiefs’ rushing attack, which finished with 190 yards and an a 6.3 yard-per-carry average. Clearly defensive tackle Brandon Mebane was missed in the middle of Seattle’s defense, but the problems went beyond that, with plenty of missed tackles contributing to a big game for Charles. The Seahawks also failed to record a single quarterback hit, let alone a sack.

Special teams


Paul Richardson lost his return job after fumbling once — Seattle recovered — and misplaying another kick to give the Seahawks a long field. The Seahawks also gave up some long returns, and Ricardo Lockette was ejected for throwing a punch on special teams. The Seahawks didn’t cost themselves the game on special teams, but they certainly didn’t help themselves either.



Just an all around mediocre day for the Seahawks, who did some encouraging things, but made enough mistakes or were just outplayed in certain elements of the game, resulting in a loss. When a game comes down to a pair of fourth-down plays, play-calling is always going to be questioned, but when the Seahawks try to run against a loaded box one time and throw another and neither works, execution is as much an issue as the call.

Hawks can’t convert on 4th down

Chiefs stop Seahawks three times on fourth down in fourth quarter By Gregg Bell The News Tribune

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two prime chances. Three measly yards. Surely the Super Bowl champions could gain 3 yards on two of the biggest plays at Arrowhead Stadium, a pair of plunges that determined their fate Sunday — if not the season. Nothing is sure this season for Seattle. “We had plenty of chances in this game,” head coach Pete Carroll said — make that, bemoaned — following his Seahawks’ 24-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. “Plenty of chances.” Yet when it mattered most the league’s 31st-ranked passing game failed to gain 2 yards. “We need to do better, you know. We had plenty of chances today to make plays,” Carroll said of the passing offense. “We protected well enough to give us opportunities. “We’re still working on it.” Third-and-goal at the 4 against the league’s 20th-ranked rushing defense. Seattle (6-4) is down 24-20 with 8 minutes left. But two plays earlier it had lost two-time Pro Bowl center Max Unger to a high-ankle sprain and twisted knee. That proved huge.

Running back Marshawn Lynch goes up the middle behind fourth-string center Patrick Lewis on a delayed handoff, then cuts back to the right. He gains only half of the needed 4 yards. Fourth and goal at the 2. Instead of a field goal that would have cut the lead to 1, Seattle sends out three wide receivers — Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and rookie Paul Richardson. Two go left, one right. Lynch is the lone running back. The thinking is understandable. Two yards to take the lead, knowing your defense hadn’t stopped Jamaal Charles and the Kansas City running game. Baldwin runs from the left slot straight up field in man coverage against Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith. Rather than a rollout with a run-pass option for Wilson, the elusive quarterback takes one step and lofts his pass far left toward the back of the end zone for Baldwin. Baldwin takes a shove in the back from Smith as the ball soars over both of them and hits the cold turf incomplete. “To me, as far as I know, that’s illegal. That’s why we have a rule book,” Baldwin said, still steamed after the game played in 10-degree wind chills. “I mean, I was open. As far

I know, when the ball is in the air no one can touch you as a receiver until the ball gets there. That’s what I know.” Asked if the official on that side that he yelled at for not calling pass interference said anything to him, Baldwin said, “He didn’t say anything relevant.” After the Seahawks forced a Chiefs punt that Bryan Walters returned to the Kansas City 45 with 6:15 left, they had third and 8. Wilson hit Kearse with a low pass on slant. Originally officials spotted the ball as a first down. Kansas City head coach Andy Reid got the frantic word from his assistants in the press box that the spot was erroneous, that Kearse was actually a yard short. Reid successfully challenged the spot. So Seattle faced another fourth down with 1 yard to go at the Chiefs 36 instead, still down 24-20. This time they went with Lynch, who had 140 yards rushing last week and 124 on his first 23 carries. But 22 of those had come behind Unger. Lynch took Wilson’s handoff and ran behind Lewis and left guard Alvin Bailey. Three huge Chiefs, led by crashing defensive end Allen Bailey, beat those two Seahawks and engulfed Lynch. It took about 900 pounds of Chiefs to stop Lynch for no gain, but they sure did.

“They did a good job. Hats off to them containing us in the end,” Lewis said in a hushed tone at his locker. “They really didn’t do anything special. ... We just didn’t get it done.” The Seahawks actually had a third chance on fourth down in that final 7:11. But that last one was of desperation: fourth and 18 from Seattle’s own 20, after Wilson had been sacked once and chased twice into incomplete throws. Wilson rolled left and then fired a prayer of a jump ball in the direction of well-covered Richardson just as linebacker Tamba Hali was hitting the quarterback. Richardson never had a chance to catch the high throw, with Smith over his back. Game over. Wilson finished 20-for-32 for 178 yards and two touchdowns. This was the fourth consecutive game Wilson failed to throw for at least 200 yards. It’s the first time that’s happened since his first four games in the NFL in 2012. That’s fitting, because this reminds Wilson of that. “I reflect back to my rookie year. We had five losses — then won the rest of our games.” Wilson said of that 11-5 season of 2012. “We keep believing. “We just keep going.”

Injuries taking a toll on Seahawks depleted roster By Dave Boling The News Tribune

KANSAS CITY, Mo. At one point late in the loss to Kansas City on Sunday, it appeared as if Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had to physically move tight end Tony Moeaki into the right position. No surprise there, he’s only been with the team for a couple weeks. Moeaki ended up catching a touchdown pass that gave Seattle a 20-17 lead in the third period against a Chiefs team for whom he used to play. But he was symbolic of the effects of injuries on the Seahawks’ roster, as four other players also participated Sunday

after being with the team only a few weeks. Defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs arrived on Nov. 5, a day after Moeaki. And backup linebacker Allen Bradford, a former Hawk in 2011-13, was brought back last week. Fullback Will Tukuafu was picked up on Oct. 29, and center Patrick Lewis is the “veteran” among the newcomers, having signed with the Hawks to back up Max Unger on Oct. 8. A leg injury to Unger caused Lewis to be cast into the lineup during critical series in the fourth quarter. Moeaki was a third-round draft pick of the Chiefs in 2010, and had 80 catches despite a series of injuries that led to his being waived and signed by

Buffalo in 2013. When Seahawks starter Zach Miller was placed on the injuredreserve list, the Hawks picked up Moeaki for depth. “My time (in Kansas City) was great; the fans here were awesome today,” Moeaki said. “It would have been nice to get a win.” Moeaki did his part, pulling in a 1-yard pass from Wilson. “It was nice to put us up with the lead, but it would have been a lot sweeter had we come away with the victory,” Moeaki said. “We’re going to get back to work and keep pushing. Today we gave ourselves a chance by getting to the 2-yard line, but we couldn’t take advantage of it. Credit to them. Next time we’ll be more prepared and capitalize

on that.” Moeaki said he’s already comfortable with the Seahawks offense. And Wilson made it clear that they trusted his skills. “We studied and we gave Tony a shot there,” Wilson said. “He executed the play extremely well. The line did a great job of blocking, and Tony raced to the corer and made a great catch in the corner of the end zone. I was really pumped up for him.” Tukuafu played more than one role for the Hawks, shifting over to the defensive line after Dobbs was sidelined briefly with a leg injury. He finished with an assisted tackle, and Dobbs had a tackle for the defense and also one on special teams.

SEAHAWKS | Notebook


What we learned ...


t took the Seahawks 10 games in 2014 to lose more times than they did in 19 games last season. That’s the reality the team is facing after Sunday’s 24-20 loss in Kansas City that dropped Seattle to 6-4. The Seahawks still have plenty to play for, but their path to the playoffs is more difficult than ever with a tough slate of games coming up. And as the latest loss showed, nothing will come easy for this team. Here are five takeaways from Seattle’s fourth down-to-the-wire loss of the season:


Red zone was the difference


Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is stopped at the 1-yard line by Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali (91), inside linebacker James-Michael Johnson (52) and free safety Husain Abdullah (39) in the first quarter during of Sunday’s games.

Another odd day for Lynch By Gregg Bell The News Tribune

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After a three and out on their first drive Sunday, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell went back to the plan that netted Seattle a team-record 350 yards rushing in last week’s win over the Giants: He called four consecutive runs for Marshawn Lynch. Lynch then spent most of the first half when he wasn’t in the game getting his lower back rubbed by a trainer with balm as the bullish running back sat and leaned forward on a heated bench along the sideline. During timeouts when he was in the huddle he often bent at the waist, as if attempting to loosen his back. Then as the rest of the Seahawks went into the locker room at halftime, Lynch stayed outside in the 21-degree air with a 10-degree wind chill. At the only break of the coldest-temperature November home game Kansas City has recorded, Lynch stayed outside. “Yeah, he did,” head coach Pete Carroll said. “He thought it would be better for him to stay out.” Asked if that was better for

Lynch’s health, the coach said, “That’s what I understand.” Lynch has missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday the last two weeks with what the team has listed as a calf issue and then this past Thursday a rib injury. Yet the four-time Pro Bowl running back has gained 140 and now 124 yards rushing in his last two games. As usual, Lynch refused to talk to the media in the locker room following the game; he has talked there only once this season, following Seattle’s win over Oakland three games ago. Lynch did talk to Michael Silver and former Seahawks teammate Michael Robinson, both of the league’s television network, on the phone following the game — perhaps to avoid a potential fine of $100,000 from the NFL if he doesn’t talk the press again. “Do I think I’ll be gone after this season?” Lynch said to Silver, repeating a question the NFL Network reporter had asked him as Lynch sat on the Seahawks’ bus to the airport. “I don’t know, man. The Seahawks, their front office gets in the media; they talk a lot. I don’t talk too much. I just play the game. “If they have something going

on, I don’t know about it.” Lynch told Robinson the reason he didn’t go into the locker room at halftime was that “he couldn’t walk.” Ex-Hawks beat old team

Howard recalls taking his release by Seattle personally. “You do at the time, but it worked out for me,” he said. “I’m happy to be a member of the Chiefs. But at the time it (hurt); it definitely did.”  

Given the way injuries have affected the Seahawks’ depth, it might have been painful to see a couple of former Hawks playing so well for Kansas City on Sunday. Strong safety Ron Parker led the Chiefs with 11 tackles, and defensive tackle Jaye Howard had three tackles, two for losses. Parker has been released eight times by three teams, including the Seahawks in 2011 and 2012. Howard was a fourth-round draft pick of the Hawks in 2012, but released in 2013. “It’s everything I dream of; I was waiting for this day a long time, and it was just great to go out there today and compete against those guys,” Parker said. “They showed me a lot of respect. A lot of guys came up to me and told me how much they missed me and how good of a job I’m doing over here. At the end of the day, we’re all brothers.” Howard was similarly motivated. “I thought about it all week,” Howard said of having been released by Seattle. “And I just had to get revenge somehow.” Howard said his experience practicing against the Seahawks helped somewhat, although “the whole offensive line changed since I was there.”

Seahawks wide receiver and puntgunner Ricardo Lockette got ejected for punching the face mask of Chiefs safety Kurt Coleman following a punt by Seattle in the second half. Coleman had gone undetected shoving Lockette lightly on the Chiefs’ sideline before officials flagged Lockette’s conspicuous retaliation. Carroll wasn’t thrilled. “If a guy throws a punch for whatever reason, it’s wrong,” he said. “I don’t know what the circumstances were, but there are no circumstances where I will warrant that.” ... Former Chiefs starting tight end Tony Moeaki, who played college ball at Northern Iowa, had 12 family members and friends at the game. He also had a ball under his arm afterward that he caught from Russell Wilson for his first TD since Seattle signed him two weeks ago. ... None of the Seahawks’ inactives were a surprise: safety Steven Terrell, defensive back Marcus Burley, linebacker Brock Coyle, linebacker Bobby Wagner, tackle Andrew McDonald, guard James Carpenter, tight end RaShaun Allen. As expected, safety Kam Chancellor started his first game in three weeks and had five tackles. He had been out with a groin injury and is still playing with bone spurs in his ankles.

Extra points

Boling From Page C1

games are against five teams with winning records, and another one that already defeated you. Defensive end Cliff Avril, meanwhile, said that the Seahawks “gotta get back to being ourselves.” But there’s the root of the problem. That’s why they’ve been downgraded from great to good — they aren’t their old selves. These are the new “selves.” This is a new team, one that doesn’t have Brandon Mebane and Bobby Wagner, injured defenders who filled their run gaps and tended to make the kind of tackles that would have helped slow down Chiefs back Jamaal Charles. Charles ran through or around seemingly dozens of ineffective Seahawks tackle attempts on the way to 159 yards rushing. “Obviously, we couldn’t stop the run,” Avril said. “That was the biggest challenge — tackling, making the plays we’re supposed to make, being where we’re supposed to be. We pride ourselves on being a sound defense. I guess today we weren’t as sound as we’d like to be.” Head coach Pete Carroll pointed out that the defense had been giving up less than 80 yards rushing a game, so that would indicate they’d tackled well this season. “I don’t know why we didn’t tackle (today),” Carroll

said. “We really take great pride in that.” But on Sunday, the line didn’t get off blocks and the linebackers didn’t fill their gaps, and almost nobody wrapped up ballcarriers. Beyond that, the Seahawks not only didn’t get a sack of Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, they didn’t get a single quarterback hit, either, while K.C. racked up a pair of sacks and nine hits. And on offense, this version of the Seahawks, down the stretch, had Patrick Lewis at center for injured Max Unger, and two newly acquired players — tight end Tony Moeaki and fullback Will Tukuafu — playing key roles. Those guys are still learning the playbook, and I’m still trying

to figure out where all their vowels go. Still, the offense rushed for 204 yards, another statistical accomplishment after last week’s 350 yards. And Russell Wilson passed for two touchdowns and added another 71 rushing yards to Marshawn Lynch’s 124. The numbers are fine. But when they needed the big play, the game-changing play, the play that lifts a good team to great, they came up empty. On a fourth down on the goal line, receiver Doug Baldwin got bumped off his route in the end zone. No flag, no points. And on a fourth-and-1 rush when they were fighting to sustain a fourth-quarter drive, Lynch got stuffed for no gain.

On five trips inside the red zone, the Seahawks came up with two touchdowns. Asked about the team’s four losses, relative to the three they had all last season, linebacker K.J. Wright made the important point. “We’re not going to try to compare last year to this year,” Wright said. “This is our season. And we control winning the rest of our games.” Exactly. Being great last season has made them the target of every opponent this season. They still have six games to go from good to great. But they’ll have to start by tackling better, because they have division-leading Arizona coming to CenturyLink Field eager to add to their woes.

How does a team out-gain its opponent by 74 yards, have five more first downs, dominate time of possession and have a plus-two turnover margin and still lose? By flubbing a bunch of red-zone chances while also failing to stop the other team in the red zone, that’s how. No stat was more telling in Seattle’s loss than its 2-for-5 conversion rate in the red zone, which included two short field goals and most importantly, and empty trip into Chiefs territory late in the fourth quarter. Kansas City, meanwhile, ran the ball at will, especially when it mattered most, and had three touchdowns in four trips inside Seattle’s 20.


Mebane’s absence was felt

Now in his eighth season in Seattle, Brandon Mebane has quietly been one of the league’s better interior linemen for years. Unfortunately for the Seahawks’ longest-tenured player, it may take him missing half of a season for people to really appreciate how important Mebane is to this defense. It would of course be oversimplifying things to say the Chiefs rushed for 190 yards simply because Mebane was missing, the result of a seasonending hamstring injury suffered last week. There were missed tackles and missed assignments that contributed to Kansas City’s big day. And let’s face it, Jamaal Charles, who finished with 159 yards and two touchdowns, is really, really good. But Mebane was undoubtedly missed.


Russell Wilson took a step in the right direction


Thomas came up big, but…


D-line depth is a concern

If you’re looking for a silver lining to take out of this loss, consider that Wilson, who has struggled in his last two games, looked considerably better while completing 20 of 32 passes for 178 yards, two touchdowns (three if Jermaine Kearse didn’t drop a ball in the end zone) and a 98.2 passer rating in adverse conditions against a very good Chiefs defense. Marshawn Lynch was a beast once again, gaining 124 yards on 24 carries, and Wilson was again dangerous as a runner with 71 yards on eight carries, but if the Seahawks are going to finish strong and make the playoffs, they’ll need a better passing game, which is why an improved outing by Wilson is encouraging. It’s easy to marvel at Thomas’ closing speed when tracking a defender in the open field. And the NFL’s best safety had another big game in Kansas City. But it’s not necessarily a good thing when a free safety, who plays as far from the line of scrimmage as Thomas does, leads the team with 11 tackles, 10 of them solo efforts. Thomas forced a big fumble that led to a Seattle score, and made a number of important stops. He showed again one he’s one of Seattle’s best defensive players — though like everyone else in white and blue, he at times struggled with Charles in the open field. But it’s not a good sign for Seattle when Thomas has the chance to make so many plays in the running game. While their stats don’t show it, Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril are still playing at a very high level this season — Bennett’s weekly offside penalties notwithstanding. But now more than ever with Mebane out, it’s clear they don’t have the quality around them that they did a season ago. Even though the Chiefs ran a lot and relied on short passes, it’s still discouraging that the Seahawks didn’t have a quarterback hit, let alone a sack. And this is no knock on Will Tukuafu, but it’s far from ideal when a player signed less than a month ago to play fullback is being forced into a defensive line rotation that also included Demarcus Dobbs, a player claimed off waivers less than two weeks ago. All year long the Seahawks have asked more of their starters, Bennett and Avril especially, and now with the season winding down, that heavy workload could be a concern.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — A new starting quarterback, the same result for Arizona. The Cardinals win again. Drew Stanton was good enough, Arizona’s defense was excellent and the Cardinals beat the Detroit Lions 14-6 on Sunday to improve to an NFL-best 9-1. Stanton threw touchdown passes to Michael Floyd on Arizona’s first two possessions and the Cardinals held the Lions without a touchdown, the first time that’s happened to Detroit since 2009, in a matchup of teams with two of the best records in the league. “When you score six points, you’re not going to win a lot of ball games,” Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said. Detroit got inside the Arizona 20-yard line only once, and that was after one of Stanton’s two interceptions. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Detroit (7-3). Stanton, starting after Carson Palmer was lost for the season with a knee injury, threw TD passes of 42 and 12 yards. After that, Arizona’s

LANDOVER, Md. — Rookie Mike Evans had 209 yards receiving and two touchdowns, and Tampa Bay broke a five-game losing streak.

Rookie Gray scores 4 TDs to lead Pats past Colts Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — New England keeps finding new ways to beat Indianapolis. On Sunday night, it was Jonas Gray. The third-string running back rushed for a career-high 199 yards and a franchise-record four touchdowns to lead the Patriots to a 42-20 victory over the Colts. Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes in the second half of New England’s sixth consecutive victory, the last to Rob Gronkowski with 6:46 left. He was 19 of 30 for 257 yards with two interceptions as the Patriots

He wound up with as many rushing TDs as the rest of the league combined Sunday — shocking numbers from a player coach Bill Belichick acknowledged was on the verge of being cut in training camp. Gray’s performance overshadowed a somewhat shaky first half from Brady, who was picked off twice, including deep in his own territory with 1:16 left in the second quarter. The result could have major playoff implications for the Colts (6-4), who have now lost headto-head matchups with Denver and AFC-best New England (8-2).

offense stalled and Stanton threw two interceptions. But the Lions couldn’t convert either turnover into a touchdown. “It was a great win for us,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said, “and solidifies the belief in our locker room that whoever steps in steps up.” Arizona won its sixth in a row and has its best record through 10 games since 1948. The Cardinals, 6-0 at home, also have a three-game lead over Seattle and San Francisco in the NFC West. Arizona held an opponent without a TD for the first time this season. “When a team doesn’t score seven points,” Cardinals linebacker Larry Foote said, “there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to come out on top.” Stanton, 3-1 as a starter this season, finished 21 of 32 for 306 yards. Stafford was 18 of 30 for 183 yards with one interception. He was sacked four times, while Stanton, facing the No. 1-rated defense in the NFL, was not sacked. “‘I’m stepping in for him,” Stanton said, “but this is still his team.”

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (87) fumbles the ball as Seahawks defensive tackle Jordan Hill (97) dives in to recover it with 1:09 to play in the second quarter of Sunday’s game.

Williams, the 34-year-old, 11-year veteran started for him. Seattle felt the loss immediately — and painfully. Kansas City romped for 190 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries, an average of 6.3 yards per rush. With Mebane over the first nine games, the Seahawks had allowed 79.8 yards rushing and 3.2 yards per carry. Williams and second-year defensive tackle Jordan Hill got turned and pushed back early and often by double teams Mebane has devoured all season. The result, especially in the first half while Kansas City built a 14-7 lead: Seattle’s linebackers were uncharacteristically getting blocked instead of making tackles. That put the onus of tackling on the secondary. And the defensive backs often whiffed on that. “I don’t know why we didn’t tackle,” Carroll said. Just like against DeMarco Murray in the loss to Dallas last month, the Seahawks got burned by a rugged runner patiently waiting for his blocks — and for

Seahawks “We think we could have — and should have — won it.” Instead the Seahawks (6-4) head home to host Arizona (9-1) while stinging over how close they came to pulling out a huge win on a 21-degree day with a wind chill of 10 in the Heartland. It was the coldest temperature for a November game at Arrowhead Stadium on record. The reality that is hitting the Seahawks is even colder. By failing to stop All-Pro Jamaal Charles (159 yards rushing, two touchdowns) or the Chiefs rushing game (190 yards) that came right at them knowing Mebane and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner were out injured, the Super Bowl champions have exhausted all of their mulligans in their title defense. To ensure a return to the postseason they need to make up a three-game deficit to the Cardinals with six to play. The fact the Seahawks have five division games remaining is the hope to which they will cling all this coming week. They were already clutching it in the locker room Sunday afternoon. “We can go either way; we can run, or we can stay on track,” safety Earl Thomas said. “I think we are going to stay on track.” Thomas forced Chiefs fumbles in the second and the third quarters that led to half of the Seahawks’ points. But he also missed a tackle on Charles’ 47-yard run in the fourth quarter up the middle, past where Mebane used to be. That set up Knile Davis’ 4-yard touchdown run that gave the Chiefs their 24-20 lead with 13:41 to play. Missed tackles, not Mebane missing, is what head coach Pete Carroll bemoaned most. “We have to go back and work to figure out how we can stop the running game,” Carroll said. The Seahawks played their first game since they lost nose tackle and run stuffer Mebane for the season to a torn hamstring. Kevin

Seattle’s linemen and linebackers to overrun cut-back lanes. Linebacker Malcolm Smith did that a lot. “We tackled so poorly,” Thomas said. “Jamaal kept making yards — and making us miss.” Asked how he thought the rushing defense fared without Mebane, his replacement scoffed. “I mean, you can’t ask that question when they got 190 yards rushing,” said Williams, the five-time All-Pro with Minnesota before Seattle signed him this spring. “Evidently, it wasn’t a good day for us. They controlled the game with the run game.” Alex Smith threw just 16 passes for Kansas City. Most of those were screens. “I mean, we expected them to stick with the run,” Williams said. “But no one expects to give up 190. That dictated the game.” Yet the Seahawks’ offense still had three opportunities in the final 9 minutes to win. Wilson usually thrives in those situations. His 13 winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime since 2012 lead the league. He’s done

it three times this season, to beat Denver, Carolina and the Giants. “We had plenty of chances in this game,” Carroll said. “Plenty of chances.” But oh they missed Unger. How much did the bedrock center’s injury change the game? Wilson was 16 for 23 for 142 yards and two touchdowns over the first 51 minutes with his two-time Pro Bowl trigger man making the line calls and anchoring pass protection. After Unger got hurt and left the game — likely out for weeks — and Lewis entered at center with 9 minutes to play, Wilson was 4 for 9 for 36 yards and got sacked once. The offense had 5.8 yards per rush with Unger, 1.3 without him. Seattle went from 6.2 yards per play to 1.8 after Unger went out. Two plays after Unger got hurt, Lynch got stopped at the 2 up the middle on third and goal. On fourth down with 7:11 left, Wilson’s lofted pass to the left corner of the end zone sailed far past Doug Baldwin, who had caught Wilson’s first touchdown pass to

tie the score in the second quarter. The wide receiver yelled for a bumping foul on Kansas City cornerback Sean Smith. It never came. The Seahawks’ defense then picked a fine time for its first three-and-out of the day, while the Chiefs were backed up at their own goal line. After the punt, Seattle took over at the Kansas City 44 down 24-20 with 6:15 left. But on that first full drive after Unger’s injury, Wilson had to walk from left to right to each of the five offensive linemen before the snap to make the protection call. By the time he did that the play clock was expiring. It was the day’s only delay-of-game penalty. Instead of second and 5 at the Kansas City 40 Seattle had second and 10 with 5 minutes left down 24-20. Lynch ran up the middle for only 2 yards behind Lewis. Then Wilson’s 8-yard pass to Jermaine Kearse was 1 yard short, instead of being a first down had the delay foul not happened. On fourth-and-1 from the Chiefs 36 and 3:38 remaining, Lynch tried to run behind Lewis and fill-in left guard Alvin Bailey. Three Chiefs swallowed Lynch. The Seahawks turned the ball over on downs for the second time in Chiefs territory in 4 minutes. Kansas City ran three times into the line to force Seattle to use all its remaining time outs on defense. The Chiefs punted again; K.C.’s Junior Hemingway made a great play to bat the ball off his goal line back into play to be downed the Seattle 4. That left the Seahawks with 2:47 left, no time outs and 96 yards from the win. That was far too tough a task. After a sack and two incomplete passes, Wilson’s fourth-and-18 jump ball to Paul Richardson was too high. The Chiefs (7-3) ran off the final minute to finish their fifth straight win. “We’ve got six games left. And I bet all six games will come down the wire,” Wilson said. “And if those six games come down the wire, I believe all six games we’re going to win.” Well, they almost have to now.
