Lovick vetoes county budget

That cost includes overtime to cover shifts while employees sat for lengthy interviews. The County Council authorized an agreement on Wednesday to end the case. Under the terms, the women, who all work as juvenile custody officers, will split the payout with their attorney. “My clients certainly feel

vindicated through the process,” said Robin Williams Phillips, the Seattle attorney representing the employees. “We are hopeful that this process has allowed Denney to initiate some basic changes in the way they administrate the facility. I hope that the new See LAWSUIT, back page, this section

In the blink of an eye

When he saw a little boy fall into a river, Brian Ryner didn’t hesitate

By Noah Haglund Herald Writer

EVERETT — Snohomish County Executive John Lovick vetoed the County Council’s version of the 2015 budget Wednesday, citing a long list of disagreements. Although he’ll face opposition, the veto has a good chance of sticking. Lovick challenged the council’s decision to halve funding for a program that serves young mothers and the elimination of some jobs. The executive also accused the council of unfairly singling out some of his employees for “ridicule and humiliation.” “The budget does not reflect our values,” Lovick said shortly after sending his veto letter. If the council and executive can’t reach agreement, the budget impasse could lead to a partial government shutdown come Jan. 1. County Council members plan to spend the next few days poring over budget documents. They are scheduled to meet Monday to work on a new spending plan. “I’m really disappointed,” Council Chairman Dave Somers said. “We presented John (Lovick) a balanced budget that was sustainable. We sent him a good budget.” The council passed its budget on a 3-2 vote. The council can override a veto, but only if it can muster at least four votes. That’s highly unlikely given current divisions on the council. Councilmen Terry Ryan and Ken Klein have consistently supported Somers on contentious votes, while council members Brian Sullivan and Stephanie Wright have sided with Lovick. Things have turned nasty in recent weeks with the council splitting along the same lines on spending $15,000 to hire an attorney to investigate comments attributed to Lovick’s second-incommand, Mark Ericks. Some on the council say they were threatened. Lovick says they are overreacting.

t was a perfect August day at Mount Rainier National Park. Two young families, strangers to each other, were sightseeing on foot along the Nisqually River, where white water tumbles over massive boulders. Then a 6-year-old Oregon boy slipped from a log bridge into the frigid river. The perfect day turned terrifying. Today, the family of Kyle Gresham, now 7, has a bond for life with a Snohomish-area family because of Brian Ryner’s courage and split-second decisions. On Aug. 8, 2013, Ryner

raced to save Kyle, leaving his own wife and two children at the Cougar Rock Campground. Ryner, 36, is among those being honored Thursday at the American Red Cross Snohomish County Chapter’s Real Heroes Breakfast. The 19th annual event is scheduled for 7 a.m. in the Tulalip Resort Casino’s Orca Ballroom. The fundraising goal for the breakfast is $250,000, according to Kristi Myers, major gifts officer for the American Red Cross Northwest Region. That money will stay in Snohomish County to support disaster relief and

Monaco’s princess gives birth to twins Associated Press

Gabriella Therese Marie and Jacques Honore Rainier — born to Charlene, 36, and Prince Albert II, 56 — are heirs to the centuriesold Grimaldi dynasty that rules the wealthy principality. Gabriella was born at 5:04 p.m. and her brother, Jacques, two minutes later, according to a palace statement. Monaco is a twosquare kilometer enclave of ritzy apartments and luxury shops on the French Riviera.

MONACO — For the first time since Monaco was founded in the 13th century, its royal family gave birth to twins on Wednesday, and dozens of cannons were fired to celebrate. Monaco’s Princess Charlene had a girl first and a boy second, but the boy will be the principality’s future ruler, reflecting the male priority of Monaco’s laws of succession. The royal twins

Malala speaks out in Oslo Associated Press OSLO, Norway — The Pakistani teenager stood on the stage of Oslo City Hall as the youngest Nobel Peace laureate, smiling as she listened to the thunderous ovation. Now, everybody knows: She is Malala. Shot in the head by the Taliban two years ago for speaking out on education, 17-year-old Malala Yousafzai on Wednesday beamed as she received

Budget From Page A1

The $224 million spending plan the council passed Nov. 24 made significant changes to the budget Lovick recommended earlier this fall. Among the biggest changes were setting aside more than $4 million to pay for the county’s future $162 million courthouse. That limited the money available to spend, and resulted in some cuts that weren’t in Lovick’s plan. The first reason Lovick gave for rejecting the council budget was the reduction of funding for the Snohomish Health District’s First Steps Program to $450,000 from $900,000. The program, where funding has long been in doubt, has served thousands of at-risk moms and newborns, who come to the health district for

the Nobel Peace Prize and taught a lesson in courage. “I had two options. One was to remain silent and wait to be killed. And the second was to speak up and then be killed. I chose the second one. I decided to speak up,” Malala said. And with that, Malala proved that teenagers could tell the elders a thing or two. Anyone who hadn’t read her memoir, “I am Malala,” was about to get an education. She adjusted her coral pink headscarf and made

no effort to hide any scars that might remain from the attack. She thanked her parents for unconditional love and then humbly suggested that she was somehow not all that special — just a girl who fights with her brothers who wanted most to learn. “As far as I know, I am just a committed and even stubborn person who wants to see every child getting quality education, who wants to see women having equal rights and who wants peace in every

corner of the world,” she said. “Education is one of the blessings of life, and one of its necessities.” Malala, who shared the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, of India, is just 17. “I’m pretty certain I’m also the first recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize who still fights with her younger brothers,” she said as her family burst into grins. “I want there to be peace everywhere, but my brothers and I are still working on that.”

checkups until the infants’ first birthday. Somers and others council members who supported the cut said they were acting on recommendations from an advisory board. The Health District this week voted to dip into reserves to maintain the program through next year. Lovick’s veto also focused on the council’s abrupt decision to cut a new Medical Examiner’s Office manager out of the budget. Dan Christman, a former Bothell police sergeant with forensics training, was tasked with stemming management problems that had festered at the county morgue for years. Since last year, the county has spent more than $600,000 to settle employee lawsuits during the tenure of Dr. Norman Thiersch. The forensic pathologist resigned this fall. Christman also reportedly made comments about council members they found problematic.

Those who voted to eliminate his job contend that was necessary because the office is top heavy with managers. “The deputy director was hired Sept. 1 as a change agent after many years of turbulence and costly litigation settlements within the department,” Lovick’s letter says. “Elimination of this position halts reform efforts that are underway and reorganization of the department according to best practice.” Elsewhere in the letter, Lovick accuses the council of singling out some executive’s office employees for “public ridicule and humiliation.” That’s a clear reference to the council majority’s ongoing effort to eliminate raises that Lovick’s administration awarded to some of the county’s highest-paid managers — including Ericks. Council members originally questioned 11 raises and ended up erasing six of

them in the recent budget. “These rollbacks open the door for various discrimination claims and damages, including the prospect of hiring outside counsel due to internal conflicts of interest,” Lovick wrote. A majority of the council maintains that the raises violate county rules for approving pay hikes. “They are essentially trying to shove those through without complying with the county code,” Somers said. Lovick’s letter also calls out council members for eliminating the county’s inclusion manager position, which has remained vacant for more than a year. The executive says the job plays a necessary role in addressing diversity issues. To fund programs that the council stripped from the budget, Lovick suggested approving a 1 percent property tax increase. That would raise a little more than $800,000 next year. Somers contends that extra revenue wouldn’t come close to funding the government programs Lovick is asking the council to support. “What he’s putting forward in revenue doesn’t match what he’s asking for in spending,” Somers said. The property tax increase was removed from the budget when Sullivan and Wright aligned with the council’s lone Republican, Klein, to vote it down. Somers and Ryan supported the increase. It would have added an estimated $2.53 onto the tax bill for a house assessed at the countywide average of $244,600.

Darrington’s Kris Langton heard survivor Tim Ward crying out after the Oso mudslide. He made a lifesaving detour through mud to find Ward, and waved down a helicopter rescue team.

Kris Langton When Kris Langton heard news of the March 22 Oso mudslide, he raced from the Arlington side of the disaster on Highway 530 toward his home west of Darrington. Rushing to reach his family, he left his car and waded through mire that was soon hipdeep. He could hear rescue helicopters overhead. In a Herald story three days later, he recalled coming upon a mother and baby trapped in muck and flagging down others to come to their aid. Amanda Skorjanc and her infant son, Duke Suddarth, were flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Langton also heard mudslide survivor Tim Ward crying out. Ward was badly injured and trapped in a debris pile 600 yards from where his Steelhead Drive home had stood. Ward’s wife, Brandy, had died. When Langton heard Ward’s calls, he was about 100 yards from the trapped man. He couldn’t see Ward but told him to signal. When Ward held up a scrap of sheet metal, it took Langton an hour to reach him. Langton waved down a Navy rescue helicopter. Rescuers used a chain saw to free Ward, who was also was rushed to Harborview by air. Langton’s tenacity saved his life.

Andrea and Jerry Dinsmore, of Baring, helped a man hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.

Andrea and Jerry Dinsmore Andrea and Jerry Dinsmore are “trail angels,” people who help hikers along the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail covers 2,663 miles through the Cascades and Sierra Nevada range, from Canada to Mexico. In October 2013, Japanese hiker Takahisa “Taka” Nezu stopped at the couple’s Baring home, which they call Dinsmores’ Hiker Haven. Nezu, 37, was on his way through the Glacier Peak Wilderness to Stehekin on Lake Chelan. Knowing what mountain conditions are like in October, the retired couple

insisted Nezu pack extra food. After he set out, an early snowstorm hit. Worried, the Dinsmores kept track of him through hiker reports and calls to the post office in Stehekin. When he was four days overdue, they alerted authorities. He was spotted, stranded on a snowfield, by a Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue helicopter crew. Volunteers from the Everett Mountain Rescue Unit were being deployed along the trail when Nezu was found — short on provisions and waving a makeshift flag tied to a stick.

Cameron Stevens was a 24-year-old youth pastor playing basketball with co-workers from Calvary Everett Church when he collapsed at the Everett YMCA. It was Nov. 19, 2013. Friends Billy Wheeler, the church pastor, and church worker Trevor Thomas immediately called 911. They initiated CPR and alerted YMCA staff. As Stevens’ vitals began to fade, Kristy Kentch, the Everett Y’s membership coordinator, Ryan French, another Y staff member, and Shoshana Pearlman, then the Y’s aquatics coordinator, quickly brought an

Edmonds police were first on the scene after a report of smoke coming from inside a condominium on April 21, 2013. When Cpl. Ken Crystal and officer Earl Yamane arrived, smoke was spewing from the condo building. One resident had seen a man, apparently unconscious, on the kitchen floor of an adjoining unit. Although fire crews hadn’t arrived, the officers decided to enter the burning, smoke-filled home. Crystal and Yamane found the 67-year-old man on the floor covered

automated external defibrillator and performed CPR to keep Stevens alive. First, Kentch and French treated Stevens for seizure, but he did not respond. With the AED and CPR, they revived his heart and sustained it until Everett Fire Department paramedics arrived. Cameron was treated for a heart condition at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. He also struggled with pneumonia. After a long recovery, the Lake Stevens High School graduate is now well. He and his wife are new parents.

Kallah Hill (far right) initiated CPR to help Chris Peterson (far left), her mother’s boyfriend. Kallah’s mother, Peggy Hill, is pictured next to Peterson, and Kallah’s twin sister, Tarah, is next to her.

Kallah Hill On Christmas Day 2013, Scriber Lake High School senior Kallah Hill was celebrating at her mother’s Edmonds home with her mom, Peggy Hill, her twin sister, Tarah, and Chris Peterson, her mother’s boyfriend. Peterson, then a 44-year-old worker at a Seattle shipyard, went to take a nap. He later didn’t respond to efforts to wake him. Kallah, who

had taken a class in first aid and CPR, saw that he wasn’t breathing. She started CPR and continued until medics arrived. Peterson recovered at Swedish Edmonds hospital. Despite lingering effects of the cardiac event, he has returned to work. Kallah graduated in June from Scriber Lake. She plans to study early childhood education at Edmonds Community College.

in soot. After bringing him out of the condo, they went back in to make sure no one else was in danger. Then, quickly, Crystal began CPR. Soon they had help from paramedics from Edmonds Station 17, part of Snohomish County Fire District 1. The rescued man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Medics confirmed that without police intervention he wouldn’t have survived. The fire was caused by papers too close to a kitchen burner.

lower legs. To stem the bleeding, the officers applied a tourniquet to the amputation wound. When they saw that the man’s life was still at risk, they applied a second tourniquet. Staff from the Everett Fire Department and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle said that action saved the man’s life.

Shane Cooper, a paramedic with Snohomish County Fire District 1, launched a roving community based program to help vulnerable people.

Spirit of Red Cross Award: Paramedic Shane Cooper Shane Cooper, a paramedic with Snohomish County Fire District 1, launched an initiative to identify people needing regular assistance. The roving community-based paramedic program prevents emergency medical calls for non-emergency events in south Snohomish County. Cooper identified homes linked to frequent 911 calls. He inspected homes, noting problems that could lead to falls or trigger asthma attacks. The effort builds relationships and connects people with services. During an initial evaluation by Snohomish County Human Services, 911 calls were down 63 percent among 13 patients tracked for three months before and after the program started in January. The effort has also cut health care spending. Cooper has visited homes throughout Snohomish County Fire District 1, which each year gets about 20,000 emergency calls. To start the program, Fire District 1 received grant money from the Verdant Health Commission. The commission is providing $144,426 a year over two years. The concept of a roving, community-based paramedic has been successful in Canada, Europe and Australia.

Coastal Community Bank employees, led by CEO Eric Sprink, helped in the community after the Oso mudslide. The bank forgave loans for those affected by the slide and served as a collection site for fundraising.

Clare Waite Humanitarian Award: Coastal Community Bank Coastal Community Bank has a history of community involvement. Led by employees and CEO Eric Sprink, the bank took extraordinary steps this year related to the March 22 Oso mudslide that killed 43 people.

After the disaster, the bank allowed local employees to work solely on landslide response. Responding to the financial blows experienced by many survivors, the bank forgave auto, home and business loans on

property affected by the slide. That decision drew national attention. The Everett-based bank added extra staff at its Darrington branch and served as a collection point for donations. Coastal employees are

still involved in the area’s recovery. They have been advocates and provided investment help. And they are active in many community groups, including the American Red Cross and United Way of Snohomish County.

Rally may be counterproductive to gun rights

C

hris Erickson describes himself as “your typical gun owner who wants to be left alone.” But state Initiative 594 “woke me up to the fact that we can’t be left alone any more.” Saturday, the Camano Island carpenter plans to be at the state Capitol alongside other gun owners angered by passage of the universal background check measure they view as an unlawful encroachment on their Second Amendment rights. He’s coming to add his voice to the chorus of demonstrators at the 11 a.m. rally in Olympia and help ignite a conversation about keeping I-594 backers from advancing their gun-control

JERRY CORNFIELD agenda any farther. Yet what could be a galvanizing event for the state’s gun-rights movement is getting shunned by some of betterknown leaders. They’re worried what might occur there could undermine efforts to fend off additional restrictions on

gun owners. The rally is dubbed “We Will Not Comply,” and civil disobedience is anticipated. People are bringing weapons to not only wave in the air but, in open defiance of the law, to sell or trade to others without first conducting a background check on the recipient. “To be honest, I don’t think this rally will really accomplish anything,” said Adina Hicks, executive director of Bellevuebased Protect Our Gun Rights, the group formed to oppose I-594 and push a countermeasure, Initiative 591, which failed to pass. “They don’t have a further goal. They want to break the law. That frankly is not what we

need right now. What we need is action,” she said. “What we need is people contacting their legislators and getting the Legislature involved to fix the nightmare that is 594.” Protect Our Gun Rights is part of a coalition organizing a Jan. 15 rally at the Capitol, after which participants will meet with lawmakers. Other groups include the Gun Rights Coalition, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Second Amendment Foundation, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership and Pink Pistols. “Standing out there on Dec. 13 will show there are a lot of people upset. I want to do more than make noise. I want to

make change,” said Rick Halle, national coordinator of the Gun Rights Coalition. “At this point, a good part of us see it as the voters have had their chance and now the Legislature or the judiciary is where we need to deal with this.” But he is going to be a spectator Saturday. “I am supporting the cause,” he said. “I can’t say if I’ll support the message until I hear it.” Kit Lange of Lake Stevens is one of those coming to Olympia who is certain to make the likes of Hicks and Halle nervous. “We are going to buy guns and sells guns,” she said. “I will be See RALLY, Page A5

The Everett school district’s board of directors is seeking to sell or lease the Longfellow Building on the 3700 block of Oakes Avenue. The board will consider other options, including demolishing the building, in 120 days. The district’s former main office, at 4730 Colby Ave., is also on the market.

Wrecking ball won’t swing yet Everett district trying to sell, lease century-old Longfellow Building By Chris Winters Herald Writer

EVERETT — The century-old Longfellow Building has been spared the wrecking ball, at least for a few more months. Wednesday night, the Everett Public Schools board of directors declined to begin the process of demolition to create more parking. Instead, the board decided to sell or lease the building at 3715 Oakes Ave., adjacent to Memorial Stadium, with the caveat that if no sale or lease agreement is reached within 120 days, the board will again consider knocking it down. The board also decided to put another building, at 4730 Colby Ave., on the market. Both buildings served as district offices until 2013. In sparing, for now, the Longfellow Building, the board heeded some community members who want it preserved. Andrea Tucker, president of the nonprofit Historic Everett, compared the Longfellow Building to those in her home city of Boston.

“We have several 100-yearold buildings in Massachusetts,” Tucker said. “We’ll never have that here if we keep demolishing them.” The Longfellow Building was built as an elementary school in 1911. It and a nearby annex have 25,171 square feet of office space. The building has fallen into disrepair, however. Mike Gunn, the district’s executive director of facilities and operations, told the board that it would cost $7.8 million to renovate it for use as office space and perhaps $4.6 million more over the next 20 years to maintain it. The district estimates that the building, annex and surrounding parking lot are worth $1.1 million to $1.6 million to a potential buyer, who would probably want to knock $500,000 to $700,000 off the price to pay for demolition. “I think that we would not find a financially viable proposal that preserves the Longfellow building,” Gunn said. If the district were to keep the land and demolish the building, it would create about 50

Firefighters plan party Snohomish County Fire District 1’s neighborhood holiday party is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the Lake Serene fire station, 4323 Serene Way, Lynnwood.

additional parking spaces on the property, Gunn said. The district uses 47 stalls on the property now for buses. The other 120 parking spaces are used for athletic events at adjacent Memorial Stadium. Buses for visiting teams drop their players off in the lot, which is immediately north of the locker rooms and showers of an athletics building. Board members were sympathetic to the need for parking. To keep the Longfellow Building on the site would cost the district $78,000 a year in utilities and basic maintenance. But by 3 to 2, the board voted to try to sell the property as-is, with the hope the building can be preserved. “We need to put it out there,” said board Vice President Ted Wenta. “We might not catch any fish.” Wenta, Traci Mitchell and Caroline Mason supported the effort to sell. The board also voted 4-0 to list the Colby Avenue building for sale. Wenta recused himself from that discussion and vote. “I represent an agency that

Smaller ferries on busy runs: The 202-vehicle Puyallup, which serves the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry route, will be out of service for four days starting midday Friday for an annual U.S. Coast Guard inspection.

may have interest in this property,” he said. Wenta works as vice president of operations for the YMCA of Snohomish County. The YMCA has been looking to replace its current Everett facility for several years, and the Colby property is one the organization is considering, said Scott Washburn, the CEO of the local YMCA. “We’re really at the stage of narrowing our options and making a decision likely next year,” Washburn said. The current YMCA building in downtown Everett was built in three phases, starting in 1920. The group has about 3,600 members at the Everett club, he said. A formal letter of interest or intent has not been submitted to the district for the Colby property, Gunn said. The district estimates that the building and its 8.1-acre lot are worth between $2.2 million and $3.9 million. If sold, the money would go to pay for capital projects elsewhere in the district.

SEATTLE — High winds and heavy rains are expected this time of year in Western Washington. The thing that made Wednesday’s storm unique was the warmth. Temperatures climbed into the 60s in the Puget Sound region and hit a record 66 at Sea-Tac Airport, the National Weather Service reported. That’s a record for any December day going back to 1945 when record-keeping began at the airport, said meteorologist Art Gaebel at the weather service office in Seattle. The wind and rain come from the tropical weather system hitting the whole West Coast, he said. One gust Wednesday near Cape Flattery on the north Washington coast hit 71 mph. Bellingham in northwest Washington had a 60 mph gust. Inches of rain, especially in the Olympics and Cascades, have filled rivers and led to flood watches and warnings in many Western Washington counties. No major flooding was expected, Gaebel said. After a lull, another storm expected to bring more strong winds was forecast to develop over Oregon, then spread north over Western Washington by Thursday evening. Sunbreaks and a few showers were forecast for Friday. Scattered power outages were reported Wednesday from southwest Washington all the way to Bellingham. The storm has hit the coast the hardest. At the aptly named Washaway Beach on the southwest Washington coast, KING-TV reported that two houses collapsed into high water Tuesday as the land beneath them eroded. Neighbors moved valuables out of their houses as a precaution. According to the state Department of Ecology, the area south of Westport along Cape Shoalwater has been eroding at about 100 feet per year for the past century. More than two dozen homes were lost or relocated from there in the 1920s, and more than 150 homes have been wiped away since the beach was developed in the 1960s.

Kingston route will see the 144-car Hyak in place of the Walla Walla. The Walla Walla’s twin, the 188car Spokane, will be in service as usual between Edmonds and Kingston. Monday and Tuesday, WSF says, drivers might experience a one-boat wait between 6:25 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. out of Kingston and a one-boat wait between 3:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. out of Edmonds.

LOCAL BRIEFLY Gas station robbed Goodwill fined Police in Lynnwood are investiover fatal accident gating an early morning robbery LYNNWOOD — Goodwill has been fined $9,000 by the state in connection with a fatal forklift accident in Lynnwood on Aug. 19. The Department of Labor and Industries on Wednesday released the findings of its inspection. The department found three violations of workplace safety laws, two of them considered serious, according to the report. Goodwill should have done more to ensure safe operations of heavy equipment, the state found. The forklift operator, a 46-year-old Edmonds man and Goodwill employee, shouldn’t have had his view obstructed by an overly large load. He also should have been driving slower. The employee needed to have more mandatory training before being allowed to operate the forklift, the state found. Killed was Chuck K. Lee, 69, of Bothell. Police earlier said the accident happened when the forklift operator saw something in front of his machine and slammed on his brakes, causing a box of merchandise to fall off the machine onto the victim as he walked through the parking lot. The Lynnwood police investigation continues.

Wednesday at a gas station. Two masked men walked into the station in the 19600 block of Alderwood Mall Parkway around 2:45 a.m., Lynnwood police Sgt. Sean Doty said. One displayed what was believed to be a weapon, Doty said. An employee told police he was assaulted by at least one of the suspects. His injuries were described as minor. The robbers stole cash and merchandise, Doty said. One suspect was taller than the other. He was described as wearing a black bandana, a black hoodie, black pants and black shoes. The other suspect was described as wearing a black hoodie with a skeleton print and built-in mask, black shorts and black Nike shoes. Both men are considered armed and dangerous.

Mill Creek: Tweets cause confusion A series of disturbing posts on Twitter that made reference to Jackson High School in Mill Creek has led to confusion among parents and the Everett School District.

The principal learned of the tweets Tuesday night, district spokeswoman Mary Waggoner said. Notification letters, emails and phone calls went out to parents in the district Wednesday morning. The posts involved an anonymous user making threats of self-harm, Waggoner said. No threats were made to others. School was in session on Wednesday but about half of the students didn’t attend, she said. The district is listening to parents’ frustrations that more information wasn’t shared sooner, she said. District officials wanted to wait until they had a more complete story, Waggoner said. They now are considering how to handle similar threats in the future, considering the alarmed response to the original posts. The district also posted an apology on its Facebook page: “We are sorry the information shared with families could not be confirmed and validated earlier than it was this morning. Rather than sharing partial information or information we were unsure of, we responded as early as possible with the facts and after working through the night with law enforcement.” Mill Creek police weren’t immediately available Wednesday to discuss their investigation. They are in contact with Twitter to try to determine the identity of the

A 62-year-old Lake Stevens woman was rescued through her bedroom window during a house fire Tuesday night. The fire was reported about 11:15 p.m. in the 2200 block of 120th Avenue NE. The woman called 911 after being awakened by a smoke detector. Crews from Snohomish County Fire District 8 in Lake Stevens found the woman trapped in a back bedroom, battalion chief Perry Putnam said. “That back bedroom was filled with smoke, as was the house,” he said. “Really, the smoke detector saved her life.” The woman was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. No other injuries were reported. The fire apparently started in the kitchen, possibly due to an appliance or electrical issue, though the exact cause is under investigation, Putnam said. Crews were able to extinguish the fire before it spread from the kitchen, which was destroyed. The house sustained heavy smoke damage. Crews from Granite Falls and Getchell also responded.

AROUND SNOHOMISH COUNTY Everett: Schools foundation awards $35K to 47 projects The Everett Public Schools Foundation has awarded 47 Classroom Grants to projects in the district for the 201415 school year, totaling more than $35,000. That’s a $7,000 increase over the previous school year. The awards range from $190 to $1,000. Funded projects include a hydroponics project at Cascade high School, digital storytelling at Emerson Elementary, 3D design and printing at Hawthorne Elementary, a robotics programs at Whittier and Monroe elementary schools and numerous reading and technology programs throughout the district. A complete list of programs and their descriptions is online at everettsd.org/domain/1449.

Mike Deller appointed trustee at EvCC Mike Deller, former CEO of the Port of Everett, has been appointed to Everett Community College’s Board of Trustees. Deller graduated from the school in 1971 and is a longtime supporter of the college. His father, Bill Deller, was the dean of students at the school and founded the EvCC Foundation, which Mike Deller later led. Deller also worked as president of EverTrust Bank and the Bank of Everett; as the Washington state director of the Trust for Public Land; and as district director for then-U.S. Rep. Maria Cantwell. He has a bachelor’s degree from Central Washington University and an master’s degree in business administration from Seattle University. Deller, who lives in Mukilteo, replaces Janet Kusler on the board. His term runs until September 2016.

Seattle protest of jury decision costs more than $585K so far Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole issued an “all hands on deck” order for Dec. 1 demonstration at Westlake Park. Associated Press SEATTLE — Seattle police said Tuesday it has cost them more than $585,000 to provide public safety services at demonstrations protesting a grand jury decision in the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. That figure only covers costs directly related to the protests, police said. It also only covers demonstrations through Dec. 2. Since Dec. 3, demonstrators have also been protesting a New York City grand jury decision in a similar case. So far during the protests, the department has arrested 22 adults and two juveniles for

investigation of offenses ranging from assault to pedestrian interference, police said. No serious injuries have been reported. Money to cover the expenses will come from the city’s general fund budget. In comparison, police say public safety and traffic expenses related to this year’s Fourth of July totaled $462,000 while police costs for this year’s May Day protests were $294,000. In what they described as an effort to “efficiently provide the right amount of public safety services at future demonstrations without compromising safety,” police asked that march and rally organizers apply online for special event permits.

The department said the permits are free for “constitutionally protected free speech events.” The first Seattle protest, after the grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson on Nov. 24, cost the city $101,571. The Seattle Times reported that the most costly protest listed was on Dec. 1, after Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said she issued an “all hands on deck” order for officers in advance of a demonstration that began at Westlake Park. That one cost $156,161. The costs include both on-duty officers and officers who worked overtime, police spokesman Sean Whitcomb said. Also tallied was nearly $16,000 in extra staffing in the days leading up to the Ferguson announcement.

THE INNKEEPER’S CHRISTMAS SUNDAY, DECEMBER 21 AT 6:00 P.M. PERFORMANCE SYNOPSIS – “Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Bar Jonah Inn! Close to all the Bethlehem action, serving all your Bethlehem needs!” Except, of course, for that one very unusual night. As innkeepers Jacob and Miriam whiz about accommodating strange requests and stranger guests with their trademark humor and wit, a desperate plea to use their stable makes them pause; if this is the advent of God’s Child, what kind of family is He creating? The Innkeeper’s Christmas re-frames the first Christmas, drawing laughter and insight from the unexpected ways God alters expectations.

Dems fight spending bill The legislation would let banks trade in exotic investments known as derivatives again.

‘Rogue’ jail guard is fired SCOTT APPLEWHITE / ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a member of the Senate Banking Committee, (right) and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, discuss the $1.1 trillion Republican spending bill Wednesday.

battle the deadly outbreak of Ebola in West Africa and the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. And it would do nothing to upend Obama’s contentious executive action on immigration or his healthcare law. Overall, however, the measure reflects the GOP’s strengthened hand in Washington as the party prepares to claim full control of Congress in January. The Department of Homeland Security, which enforces the nation’s immigration laws, would be funded only through Feb. 27, when Republicans plan to revisit the agency’s budget in hopes of curtailing Obama’s immigration action. Another controversial provision would permit a wealthy couple to give as much as $3.1 million to political parties, 10 times the current limit. And the Wall Street provision marks a big win for Republicans who have long complained the Dodd-Frank regulations are burdensome. Former Congressman Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat who co-authored the act in the wake of the 2008 banking crisis, called it “an absolute outrage” and “a road map for the stealth unwinding of financial reform.” Under the 2010 Dodd-Frank overhaul, banks are prohibited from using taxpayer-insured depositor funds for particularly risky derivative transactions. Derivative trades are basically a bet on the future value of things such as commodities. For example, major airlines use derivatives to hedge against future price changes for jet fuel, as a way to keep ticket prices stable. But before the 2008 financial crisis, Wall Street firms used more complicated derivative formulas to place risky bets on

the mortgage market. American International Group nearly fell into bankruptcy in 2008 because of its use of derivatives known as credit-default swaps. Since the passage of DoddFrank, banks have pushed for exceptions to the regulations so they can use their deposits to underwrite some derivative trades. The new language would bow to this demand by effectively repealing portions of the “push out” provision of Dodd-Frank, which requires banks to push some derivatives trading into separate units that do not have access to deposit insurance. On the Senate floor, Warren said the changes in the spending bill “would let derivatives traders on Wall Street gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out by the government when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system.” She added, “These are the same banks that nearly broke the economy in 2008 and destroyed millions of jobs.” Keeping Wall Street banks in check and protecting everyday American consumers is a core message of the Democratic Party heading into the 2016 presidential election. Warren’s leading role in crafting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, authorized under Dodd-Frank, made her a star on the left and a leading voice in the party. Banking lobbyists defended the provision as a relatively minor change that, according to Francis Creighton, chief lobbyist for the Financial Services Roundtable, “will make it easier for financial institutions to use derivatives as a hedge against risk, which is an important part of making the economy work.” Creighton expressed surprise at the fuss over the measure. “We have been talking about it

for years, and very publicly,” he said, adding that the same provision had been approved by the House in 2013 in a standalone measure that won the votes of 70 Democrats. Among those voting yes were Hoyer and Rep. Nita Lowey of New York, the senior Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, which wrote the spending bill. Far from being slipped into the measure in the dark of night, as Warren and some others claimed, the provision was approved through the regular House committee process and then negotiated directly with Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., according to aides in both parties. Aides to Mikulski and other Democratic leaders said the spending measure could have been worse. They said Mikulski successfully turned back other GOP requests to amend Dodd-Frank and extracted more money from Republicans for federal watchdog agencies, including $150 million for the Securities and Exchange Commission and $35 million for the CFPB. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., who opposed the 2013, said he would vote against the new spending measure in its current form. The change to Dodd-Frank coupled with the campaign finance provision makes for a toxic blend, he said. “Each of these alone is bad for the public, but the combination is especially smelly,” Van Hollen said. “You’ve got the quid and the quo in one bill.” Still, Van Hollen was one of the few Democrats willing to risk a government shutdown by blocking the bill. Pressed by reporters, even Warren would not make that commitment.

U.N. seeks torture prosecutions McClatchy Newspapers GENEVA — One day after the release of a damning Senate report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program, the United Nation’s top human rights official said Wednesday a key treaty the United States has signed requires that officials be held accountable for torture. “The Convention Against Torture is crystal clear,” says Zeid Raad al Hussein, the U.N.’s high commissioner for human rights. “It says — and I quote — ‘No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture.’ ” The convention, he said, “lets no one off the hook — neither the torturers themselves, nor the policymakers, nor the public officials who define the

California residents prepare for big storm SAN FRANCISCO — Crews in Northern California cleared storm drains and residents loaded up on sandbags Wednesday ahead of a powerful storm expected to pack hurricane-force winds capable of toppling trees and power lines and heavy rains causing streams and rivers to flood. As much as 8 inches of rain could fall on coastal mountains over a 24-hour period starting late Wednesday, the National Weather Service said. Ski resorts in the northern Sierra Nevada could get more than 2 feet of snow. The storm is expected to be one of the windiest and rainiest in five years and could also cause debris slides, especially in areas affected by this year’s intense and widespread wildfires.

The Washington Post WASHINGTON — Congressional liberals rebelled Wednesday against a mustpass spending bill that would keep the government open past midnight Thursday, complaining that it would roll back critical limits on Wall Street and sharply increase the influence of wealthy campaign donors. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a popular figure on the left, led the insurrection with a speech on the Senate floor, calling the $1.1 trillion spending bill “the worst of government for the rich and powerful.” Warren urged House Democrats to withhold their support from the measure in a vote Thursday. But the fear of shutting down federal agencies for the second time in just over a year appeared to weigh more heavily on Democratic leaders than liberal outrage. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., both expressed concerns about the measure but were not mobilizing their members to vote against it. Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that “it is certainly possible that the president could sign this piece of legislation,” even though it would undo a pillar of the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory overhaul by freeing banks to more readily trade the exotic investments known as derivatives. The legislation ranks among the administration’s biggest domestic achievements. “I don’t think the vast majority of Democrats or even Republicans are going to look too kindly on a Congress that’s ready to go back and start doing the bidding of Wall Street interests again,” Earnest said. But he later said, “We certainly don’t want to see a government shutdown.” Republican leaders, for their part, predicted that the House would easily approve the sprawling spending bill and send it on to the Senate, which would face a midnight Thursday deadline. The measure provides funding through September for the Pentagon and dozens of other federal agencies and contains hundreds of individual policy instructions — from the ongoing ban on federal funding for abortion to a new prohibition on the legalization of marijuana in the District of Columbia. The bill includes some good news for the White House, including fresh funding to

policy or give the orders.” The rights chief made his remarks on the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the 1984 convention, which the United States and 155 other countries have signed. “To have it so clearly confirmed that it was recently practiced — as a matter of policy — by a country such as the United States is a very stark reminder that we need to do far, far more to stamp it out everywhere,” Hussein said. Ben Emmerson, the U.N. special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights, said the Senate report should prompt prosecutions. “It is now time to take action,” he said. “The individuals responsible for the criminal conspiracy revealed in today’s report must be brought to justice and must face criminal penalties commensurate with the gravity of their crimes.”

Emmerson, a British lawyer, said the fact the Justice Department had written memos that authorized the harsh tactics used “provides no excuse whatsoever. Indeed, it reinforces the need for criminal accountability.” “It is no defense for a public official to claim that they were acting on superior orders,” he said. “CIA officers who physically committed acts of torture bear individual criminal responsibility for their conduct and cannot hide behind the authorization they were given by their superiors.” But those who committed abuses aren’t the only targets for criminal prosecution, he said. “The heaviest penalties should be reserved for those most seriously implicated in the planning and purported authorization of these crimes,” he said. Under the conditions of the

1984 Convention Against Torture, he said, “the U.S. attorney general is under a legal duty to bring criminal charges against those responsible.” Phil Lynch, director of the Geneva-based International Service for Human Rights, told McClatchy that as a matter of international law the United States is not the only country that could bring charges. He noted that the 1984 convention played a part in the arrest in London in 1998 of the late former Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet following an indictment by a Spanish prosecutor for human rights violations. Lynch said there is an obligation on member countries to investigate all allegations of torture and to hold accountable perpetrators involved “directly or indirectly” - including politicians and policymakers. The prohibition of torture “is absolute,” he said.

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore has fired a jail guard who put a handcuffed inmate in a neck hold to force him to the floor. A spokeswoman said the guard was dismissed last week. Deputy Sam Knight was suspended without pay in August for using improper force at the detention facility. He appealed and in October the county Civil Service Commission reversed the discipline and awarded the seven-year veteran back pay with interest. The sheriff is suing the commission to overturn that decision, arguing that it ignored laws designed to protect the public from rogue employees.

Missouri: Enrollment slips The University of Missouri-St. Louis on Wednesday announced a hiring freeze in response to an unexpected enrollment drop that campus officials are linking to the fatal police shooting in nearby Ferguson. The chancellor announced the hiring freeze in a campuswide email that cited a $2 million budget shortfall created by “widespread anxiety about the region in general and North (St. Louis) County in particular.” “Misplaced though it may be, it is a perception affecting the community and UMSL,” he said. The university, with an enrollment of about 12,000, expects to have 600 fewer students in the upcoming spring semester compared with spring 2014.

W. Virginia: Airport gun A woman won’t face charges after a loaded gun was found in her carry-on bag at an airport. The Transportation Security Administration said officers staffing X-ray machines at a checkpoint detected the .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun Wednesday. The agency said the gun was loaded with seven rounds, including one in the chamber. Yeager Airport Police confiscated the gun but chose not to arrest the Scott Depot woman. The airport police chief said what happened was “just an oops.”

Kentucky: Ark park taxes The state has withdrawn its offer of tax breaks for a religious-themed park that would feature a 500-foot-long wooden ark. The tourism secretary said the planned project had evolved from a tourism attraction into an outreach for the Christian ministry that is building it. He wrote Wednesday to the group’s lawyer that “state tourism tax incentives cannot be used to fund religious indoctrination.” He said the group was no longer honoring its pledge to not discriminate in hiring for the ark park. The ark project got preliminary approval in July for up to $18 million in tax rebates.

AROUND THE WORLD Uruguay: Students and pot High school students are smoking more marijuana than tobacco. A survey on drug consumption released Wednesday by the National Drugs Board said 17 percent of high-schoolers said they smoked pot in the past year versus 9 percent for tobacco. It’s the first time since the survey began in 2003 that marijuana consumption is higher than tobacco use among high school students. Uruguay in 2013 became the first nation to approve a state-overseen marijuana market.

Poland: Ritual slaughter The constitutional court Wednesday overturned a ban on the ritual slaughter of animals that had affected the Jewish and Muslim communities. The Constitutional Tribunal ruled that the protection of animals could not take precedence over the guarantees of religious freedom. From Herald news services

Lawmakers OK cuts in pensions The Washington Post WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of congressional leaders reached a deal Tuesday evening that would for the first time allow the benefits of current retirees to be severely cut, part of an effort to save some of the nation’s most distressed pension plans. The measure, attached to a massive $1.01 trillion spending bill, would alter 40 years of federal law and could affect millions of workers, many of them part of a shrinking corps of middleincome employees in businesses such as trucking, construction

and supermarkets. “We have to do something to allow these plans to make the corrections and adjustments they need to keep these plans viable,” said Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., who along with Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., led efforts to hammer out a deal. The idea is reluctantly supported by some unions and retirement fund managers who see it as the only way to salvage the pensions in plans that are in imminent danger of running out of money. But it also has stirred strong opposition from retirees who could face deep pension

cuts and from advocates eager to keep retiree pensions sacrosanct, even in cases when funds are in a deep financial hole. These advocates argue that allowing cuts to plans would open the door to cuts for other retirees later. “We thought our pension was secure,” said Whitlow Wyatt, a retired trucker who lives in central Ohio. “That was always the word. Now they are changing that.” Wyatt, 70, retired with a $3,300-a-month pension in 2000 after working more than 33 years as a long-haul driver. He could face pension reductions of 30

percent or more if Congress permits trustees of the hard-pressed pension fund to slash benefits. The deal is aimed at helping plans like the Teamsters’ Central State fund. The pensions earned by truckers in the fund are among the best enjoyed by working-class people anywhere: After 30 years on the road, many of its participants are entitled to upward of $3,000 a month for the rest of their lives. But now the fund, rocked by steep membership declines, an aging workforce and downturns See CUTS, Page A10

Airlines are fighting technological upgrades recommended by their own International Air Transport Association industry group as it seeks to prevent a repeat of the Malaysian Air Flight 370 disappearance. Proposals drawn up after the loss of the Boeing 777 without any knowledge of its last position or signs of wreckage have had a mixed response from airlines, which regard the 12-month timescale for implementation as burdensome, Tony Tyler, IATA’s chief executive officer, said Wednesday in Geneva. “Our members took a very serious look at the recommendations,” Tyler said. “While they’re committed to improving, they could not fully endorse what

American Airlines will have to wait longer to get its first highly touted Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, as delays will push its delivery into the new year, American confirmed Wednesday. The airline was supposed to take delivery in November, only to have the date pushed back to this month and then into the first quarter of 2015. Reasons for the delay include problems installing lie-flat seats in the premium cabin, an American spokeswoman said. She said American is working with Boeing and other manufacturers, as well as with the Federal Aviation Administration, to get some issues “squared away.” American’s Dreamliner will be placed on domestic routes before regularly flying international ones.

The 2014 apple crop came in 3 percent less than forecast but is still a record 150 million boxes. The crop is measured in 40-pound boxes.

Packers have shipped 35 million boxes, leaving 115 million boxes in storage to supply the market into next year. Washington is the nation’s leading apple producer.

airlines have either backed off or are struggling to fill the two decks of the jumbo. “It’s an excellent plane but it only works for the right destinations,” said Air France-KLM Group Chief Executive Officer Alexandre de Juniac, who aims to cancel the last two of a dozen A380s on ordered and swap them for smaller models. Chris Buckley, Airbus’s executive vice president for Europe, Asia and the Pacific, said the company has been “at fault” in the way it marketed the aircraft, letting carriers customize the interiors in whatever way rather

than pushing the high-density credentials of the double-decker. A four-engine widebody airliner is a rarity after Airbus killed the A340. The Boeing Co. said Tuesday that it will cut back production of its 747 jumbo. Emirates President Tim Clark is pushing Airbus to upgrade the A380’s engines to improve fuel efficiency, a move Airbus is resisting because the cost of doing so doesn’t match demand for the plane. Keeping the plane unchanged may mean running down the backlog and eventually shutting down production, now at just under 30 a year, analysts said.

“Airbus will be obliged to make a decision one way or the other in 2015,” said Yan Derocles, an analyst at Oddo Securities in Paris, who estimates an engine upgrade may cost Airbus $2.47 billion because of work required on the wing. An engine upgrade would take about four years, according to Derocles. The A380 now comes with a choice of engines, either by Rolls-Royce or a joint venture between General Electric and Pratt & Whitney. The A380’s lackluster demand See A380, Page A10

Airlines skeptical of jet-tracking proposal Bloomberg News

Dreamliner for American is delayed

State’s apple crop lower than estimated

Bloomberg News LONDON — Airbus Group raised the prospect of discontinuing its A380 super-jumbo jetliner as soon as 2018, the first admission that it may have misjudged the market for the double-decker after failing to find a single airline buyer this year. While Airbus will break even on the plane in 2015, 2016 and 2017, that outlook doesn’t hold for 2018, forcing the company to either offer new engines to make the A380 more attractive or discontinue the program, Chief Financial Officer Harald Wilhelm told investors Wednesday. His comments came as 2014 shapes up to be the first since the double-decker entered service without a new airline customer. Its only buyer was a leasing company that has yet to line up a single carrier to take any of the 20 planes it ordered. The backlog remains as thin as it is fragile, highlighted by the cancellation of six jets ordered by Japan’s Skymark Airlines, with two close to handover. In its seventh year in operation, the aircraft that cost $25 billion to develop threatens to become a costly misstep. While popular with travelers, most carriers prefer smaller twin-jet models that are more fuel efficient and can access more airports. Emirates is the only stand-out sponsor, having ordered 140 units, while other

While airlines should assess the business case for upgrading equipment in the near term, for now they’ll continue to rely on existing systems, he said. Aircraft tracking became a top priority for IATA — which represents 250 airlines — after the Malaysian Airline incident on March 8 in which the captain or another individual is thought to have disabled equipment indicating the 777’s position.

The recommendations from IATA’s Aircraft Tracking Task Force stop short of suggesting carriers should immediately invest in tamper-proof transponders, a measure that the report suggests is one for the next three years. Instead, the study says, all aircraft should transmit information on their longitude, latitude, altitude and local time to permit four-dimensional tracking, which should be accurate to within at least 1 nautical mile and reported every 15 minutes — or more often in the event of an alert. Transmissions wouldn’t be required where air traffic surveillance services are able to directly glean the required information or if

Costco’s profit jumped 17 percent during the first quarter, driven by membership fees and falling gas prices. Sales at stores open at least a year rose 7 percent when the impact of lower gas prices and foreign exchange are stripped out. Costco made $582 million from membership fees, up from $549 million a year ago during the same period. The warehouse club operator posted net income of $496 million, or $1.12 per share. That’s better than the $1.09 that analysts had projected, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research. Revenue was $26.87 billion in the period, just edging out Wall Street expectations.

Instagram now bigger than Twitter Instagram now has more than 300 million users worldwide, making it bigger than Twitter. The photo-sharing app announced its latest user figures in a post from chief executive Kevin Systrom on Wednesday, saying users share more than 70 million photos and videos every day. Instagram also announced the addition of verified badges for celebrities, athletes and brands, making it easier for users to identify and connect with authentic accounts; badges, such as those used by Twitter, are typically icons that appear next to a person’s user name, denoting that his or her identity has been verified by the company. Instagram’s badges will start rolling out “over the coming days,” Systrom said. From Herald news services

Market Report THE DAILY HERALD

THE DAY ON WALL STREET Oil resumed its slide on Wednesday and took the stock market down with it. The catalyst for the latest sell-off in oil was an OPEC report that projected demand for its crude would sink next year to levels not seen in more than a decade. Demand for the cartel’s oil has been eroded as other countries such as the U.S. have stepped up production. The decline in the price of oil accelerated after the U.S. Energy Department reported that domestic oil inventories had increased. The price of oil has now dropped more than 40 percent from a peak of $107 in June. — Associated Press

remain in good fiscal health and would be untouched by the proposal. But several dozen have failed, and several other large ones, including Central States, are staggering toward insolvency. In its annual report last month, the Pension Benefits Guaranty Corp., the federal insurance program that backs private-sector pensions, warned that the problems facing multiemployer pensions could cause the safety net that secures them to collapse within the next decade. If that happens, retirees depending on multi-employer plans for their pensions would

receive nothing if their plans failed. (A separate PBGC insurance fund covering single-employer private pensions is in much better financial shape.) Even if the insurance fund survives, maximum coverage for people in multi-employer plans is minimal — about $13,000 a year. Although it has issued similar alerts in the past, the PBGC’s latest warning seems to have pushed Congress to move from studying a policy change to actively negotiating for one in recent weeks. The abrupt action has alarmed some pension rights advocates, who are concerned about a decline in retirement security for all Americans. They also worry about a creeping trend toward trimming pensions, citing retirement benefit cuts for government employees in Detroit and elsewhere. But managers of deeply troubled funds say that absent a federal bailout,

which they call politically infeasible, cutting benefits is the only way to save them. Last week, more than 1,300 employers sent letters to members of Congress urging lawmakers to back the proposal to allow benefit cuts. “The longer we wait to take action, the more severe the impact on retirees and workers in the plans in the worst financial shape will become,” business leaders wrote. “The longer we wait, the heavier the burden will become on employers struggling to fund and extend these pension plans.” That is the situation confronting the Central States plan, which was notorious in the 1960s and ’70s for being used as a slush fund for organized crime. Since then it has operated under federal court supervision and with the help of professional fund managers. Yet that has not been enough to overcome demographic and other trends that have

weakened its finances. In 1980, the Central States fund had four active participants for every retiree. Now, there are nearly five retirees or inactive members for every worker, because many unionized trucking firms have gone out of business in the decades since deregulation, Thomas Nyhan, executive director of Central States, told Congress earlier this year. The fund has about $18 billion in assets and pays out annual benefits of $2.8 billion to retirees. But it receives just $700 million each year from employers. Even given the strong stock market returns of recent years, that puts the plan on course to run out of money within the next 10 to 15 years, Nyhan has said. The fund ran into trouble during the dot-com crash of the early 2000s. Also, United Parcel Service, once the largest firm in Central States, paid more than $6 billion to drop out of the

fund in 2007. Much of that money was lost when the market tanked in 2008, leaving the fund in perilous condition. Some see cutting benefits preemptively as the only way to keep troubled plans such as Central States afloat. Under the agreement reached by congressional negotiators, retirees over age 75 as well as those who are disabled would be shielded from any reductions. Also, any benefit cuts would be subject to a vote of plan participants. Nonetheless, many retirees feel betrayed. “I never dreamed they would pull the rug out from under us,” said Greg Smith, 66, a retired shipping clerk who retired in 2011 with a $3,000-a-month pension after 42 years on the job. “I actually retired because I was worried about them cutting pensions. I thought I would be grandfathered in with protections. But I guess not.”

almost 800 orders. Airbus has won orders for 318 of the A380. That’s a fraction of the 1,200 it thought airlines needed in that size category when it started marketing in 2000. Emirates accounts for 40 percent of the order book, while airlines including Virgin Atlantic Airways, Hong Kong Aviation and Air Austral are increasingly unlikely to ever take their planes. Japan and China, originally seen by Airbus as key markets for the A380, have been disappointments, with only one Chinese

airline taking five. Boeing’s 747-8i, the only rival, has fared even worse, winning 51 orders from four airlines. “It’s a pity,” Clark, the Emirates president, said of the A380. “It’s a very big cash generator for us. I just open the doors and the people come.” Emirates has been successful with its fleet of A380s because the airline uses its Dubai hub as a central point from which to connect major routes around the globe with just one stop. The A380 is also popular on capacityrestricted airports such as

London Heathrow, while many smaller airfields lack the infrastructure to accommodate the plane. Richard Aboulafia, vice president at the Teal Group and longtime critic of the plane, said the new large twin-engine planes coming to market will be the death of the A380. “I don’t think it lasts more than a few years into the next decade,” he said of the A380. “The quicker they let go, the quicker they can devote themselves to marketing efforts on other products.”

IN OUR VIEW | Washington State Opportunity Scholarship

Keeping our jobs and students In Wednesday’s editorial we outlined the findings of a report by the Boston Consulting Group that found that while Washington is producing a healthy number of jobs in technology fields, very few residents born in the state, only 9 in 100, are filling those positions. The report, “Opportunity For All: Investing in Washington State’s STEM Education Pipeline,” calls for investment by the state and others in early learning, K-12 education, the transition to college, postsecondary education and career coaching. One crucial component in that investment is the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship program, which seeks to encourage and support students who choose to study in fields related to science, technology, engineering, math and health care. Launched in 2011 and preparing now to accept applications in early January for its fourth year, the scholarship is open to state

residents with a high school diploma or GED whose families are at or below 125 percent of the state median income, $104,000 for a family of four. Students also must be studying one of 367 majors related to STEM or health care fields and must have a 2.75 grade point average. The scholarship, over a maximum five years, is worth up to $22,500, beginning with $2,500 grants in the first two years, $5,000 once a major is declared and up to $7,500 for a high-demand major. Those are significant numbers as tuitions continue to rise and make higher education less attainable for low- and middle-income families. Word is getting out among young women and minorities. Of its applicants last year, 60 percent were female and 53 percent identified themselves as persons of color. Nine percent of high school applicants last year were from Snohomish County. The intent, said Naria Santa

Lucia, executive director for Opportunity, is to lift families out of poverty, encourage women and minorities to study for careers they might not have considered and place graduates in wellpaying careers in STEM and health care fields where demand is high. “By 2018, 80 percent of available jobs will be in STEM or health care,” Santa Lucia said. As evidence of the eagerness of tech companies to see the pool of state job applicants increased, Microsoft and Boeing have each pledged $25 million to the scholarship fund, which the state has committed to matching dollar-for-dollar. Opportunity is continuing its campaign for donations from individuals and corporations, specifically those who might soon benefit from the creation of these graduates. The program does more than offer students a scholarship and a wish of good luck; it tracks students’ academic

progress, can match them with mentors in their field of study, then work with them after graduation to find a job in their field. The scholarship program’s care in selecting its scholars and offering assistance during their studies already is showing fruit, even with just three years of data. To date, of those students who earned scholarships in the program’s first two years, 1,012 have earned bachelor’s degrees. Of those students awarded a scholarship in the second year, 83 percent have either graduated or re-enrolled for the 2014-15 academic year. Of those who earned degrees, 65 percent are employed in their field of study, compared to the national average of 47 percent who found work in their field. And of those working in their chosen career, 89 percent are living in Washington state. This is how we keep our students and our jobs right here.

stay on and be reappointed, because of his proven experience in government, it’s John Koster. Don’t give in to most likely behind the scenes pressures (my opinion) of politics. A person who learns from their mistakes does not repeat them. Give Koster that opportunity. Again, he was chosen there for a reason. Remind yourself of those reasons.

“inflammatory statement” as not being one that Koster holds publicly. Oh, I see … it took 10 paragraphs to state that Koster didn’t publicly announce his position regarding candidates or issues. And then the last paragraph: “And the county council has every right to decide if his apparent inability to show discretion means he’s not the right fit for the job.” Translation: We don’t like him because he is a conservative, and no one else should like him either. Well, I believe I do, now … and maybe even the Freedom Foundation. At least they speak the truth. Oh, one more thing ... if The Herald holds the policy of “guilt by association” then publish the membership of all the editorial staff so we, the readers, will have a background from which to judge their comments.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■■MPHS SHOOTINGS

Thanks to those who spoke out Regarding the article, “Break silence on shooter’s crimes, 2 victims’ families say”: It takes a lot of courage for the tribal victims’ families to publicly come forward with their thoughts regarding the MPHS shootings. I am proud of each of them for taking this stand, as that is our tribal teachings to think about our children and teaching the right from wrong. In talking to numerous tribal members, we agree with their words in Wednesday’s Herald and are glad they spoke up. This is their process of healing, and not keeping this inside themselves, and it also lets the rest of the tribe know their thoughts, and we can help in their healing. I know their grief will never end and they are also the victims, as they have to live with it for the rest of their lives. As a tribe, I don’t think any members condone the horrific actions of the shooter, and there should have been some accountability for his actions, but now he has to face the highest judge of all in Heaven. Thanks to the victims’ families for publicly coming out, and for the article, as it lets the community know that this has deeply affected our tribe emotionally and it will take a long time for us to heal.

Stop payment on unoriginal logo First, stop payment on the $5,000 check written to the guy that apparently ripped off the logo from that Chicago company. Second, please explain to me in what way does the “new” logo describe Everett? Where are the mountains, water, evergreens — anything that indicates that this city is beautiful? If we stick to the current logo we do not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars in replacing stationary for every city department, reprogramming every city computer to print a different logo, repainting hundreds of city vehicles, and replacing the myriad logos throughout the city. This change is extremely costly and absolutely unnecessary. Carolyn Sterling Everett

Koster deserves reappointment The position of ombudsman is a newly created job/position in Snohomish County. John Koster is the first appointee. There was, and is, a reason Koster was chosen. Koster is thorough in all he does. He has proven that in past positions. OK, his union statements, are at best, not what Koster is all about in the big picture scope of things. So now, John Lovick, who appointed Koster, is asking the council to make sure they take the necessary steps to insure that John Koster is not reappointed come Dec. 31. The council knows Koster very well. Evidently John Lovick does not. It’s a new position. I believe Koster did not purposely put his comments out there regarding unions, trying to diss them. Koster has, and still does want what’s best for the county. We have numerous unions in this county. The union themselves have shown they have good things and not so good things. Unions are good, but they too make poor judgements at times. They learn as they go, especially when a controversy arises. No doubt some people are looking at future politics for themselves. Disagreements happen all the time, Mr. Lovick. You know Mr. Koster has gained knowledge from this obvious controversy, but does it mean getting rid of him? No, it does not. He no doubt has learned from this. So, Snohomish County Council and Executive John Lovick, if anybody deserves to

Editorial makes case to keep him In Tuesday’s editorial, the author has a problem with John Koster being a member of the Freedom Foundation. (“Official’s political work displays lack of discretion.”) I don’t know John Koster nor do I know much about the Freedom Foundation, but it strikes me as not very “neutral” on the Herald’s part to assume because Koster supports the Freedom Foundation that he therefore agrees with every position that group takes. The Herald Editorial Board’s logic is: Here is a conservative person in county government; let’s see if we can find something to complain about. Oh, here it is, Koster wrote, “union leaders have ripped off our hard-working teachers and state employees, forcing them to pay dues whether they want to be part of the union or not, then funneling that money to politicians at election time.” The problem with this statement is… it is true!

Value in report to Senate is in facing actions

A

CIA medical officer who was assigned to monitor the interrogation of an al-Qaeda operative named Abu Zubaida sent a message to his superiors on Aug. 4, 2002, the day the CIA first used the technique known as “waterboarding.” He hauntingly titled his cable: “So it begins.” “Longest time with the cloth over his face has been 17 seconds. This is sure to increase shortly. NO useful information so far. ... I’m head[ing] DAVID IGNATIUS back for another water board session.” And so dawned a nightmare era in which a CIA with little expertise in interrogation worked desperately to gather information that might protect a nation severely traumatized by the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Zubaida “cried,” “begged,” “pleaded” and “whimpered,” but the waterboarding continued and the interrogation progressed. An Aug. 8, 2002, cable noted: “Several on the team profoundly affected ... some to the point of tears and choking up.” What started that day at a secret prison in Asia came full circle Tuesday with a public accounting by the Senate Intelligence Committee. Reading the report, you feel a measure of the remorse experienced by those onlookers 12 years ago. While the report’s tone struck me as overly prosecutorial, I have no question that the committee was right to disclose it. This is a political document, not a dispassionate history, but that’s part of its value: There simply is no way for a democracy to get past a trauma like the interrogation issue without an honest public accounting. It’s a strange healing process, ripping off the scab, exposing our wounds; perhaps it’s like the self-flagellation of the early saints. Writing recently in The New Yorker, George Packer likened the healing process to psychoanalysis: “Germany has brought its past to the surface, endlessly discussed it, and accepted it, and this work of many years has freed the patient to lead a successful new life.” The Senate report describes a CIA that rushed recklessly into the interrogation abuses. But what struck me was how unprepared the agency was for handling captured al-Qaeda suspects. Most CIA officers were gentleman spies who would echo the demurrals of John Limond Hart when asked in 1978 about the harsh interrogation of KGB defector Yuri Nosenko: “It has never fallen to my lot to be involved with any experience as unpleasant. ... To me it is an abomination.” The agency, fearing a “second wave” of al-Qaeda attacks, turned in 2002 to two psychologists who claimed to be experts in interrogation. Based on their experience training American pilots to resist harsh interrogation, these consultants devised a list of 12 techniques to break the will of al-Qaeda detainees. In addition to waterboarding, they suggested “use of insects” and “mock burial,” which apparently were rejected. Their company was paid a grotesque $80 million for its services. The Senate report overreaches in its claim that torture was “not an effective means of acquiring intelligence.” Would that we could be so sure. It’s wiser to be agnostic about effectiveness, but clear about ethics. We can’t know whether information gained from harsh interrogation helped provide essential leads that allowed the targeting of Osama bin Laden. That’s why banning torture is a moral choice: Because in doing so, we may indeed lose useful information. That’s the risk we take in doing the right thing. What’s least convincing about the report is its picture of an agency that maliciously deceived the rest of the government. This revives the notion of the CIA as a “rogue elephant.” The real story of intelligence abuses in the 1950s and ’60s is that they were ordered by presidents or their henchmen, who didn’t want to know the dirty details. This ambiguity comes through in an Aug. 2, 2002, memo after Condoleezza Rice, then national security adviser, was told the Justice Department had approved waterboarding and the other techniques we now describe as torture: “’Dr. Rice had been informed that there would be no briefing of the president on this matter,’ but that the [CIA director] had policy approval to employ the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques.” And so it began.

management will follow through.” Phillips was referring to management changes at Snohomish County Superior Court, which oversees Denney. That includes Marilyn Finsen taking over as Superior Court administrator for Bob Terwilliger, who is retiring at the end of the year. Phillips filed the lawsuit in April on behalf of Dee Thayer, Barbara Lucken and Karen Hastings. All have worked at Denney since the late 1990s. They want to keep working there, if problems are addressed. “My clients are looking forward to being

productive employees,” Phillips said. “They enjoy working for the county.” In their lawsuit, the plaintiffs said “managers, supervisors and certain co-workers ... created an atmosphere such that women would feel threatened and harassed.” They leveled specific allegations against Everett City Councilman Ron Gipson, who had worked as a juvenile corrections officer since 1996. They accused Gipson of making rude and obscene gestures at women while at work. They accused Gipson and other male employees of touching female coworkers inappropriately. Those who complained said they endured retaliation. The women’s lawsuit stated that Gipson “threatened the physical

well-being of plaintiffs” if they reported “his offensive and demeaning conduct.” Gipson has denied the misconduct. He’s been on paid administrative leave since February. He’s the only employee on leave in connection with the case, Terwilliger said. Inappropriate treatment of female employees has persisted at Denney for years, Phillips has said. The attorney represented three other female Denney employees in a 2004 lawsuit alleging sexual discrimination and retaliation by male co-workers. The county settled that case in 2006 for $500,000, split three ways. Managers are confronting myriad complaints of bias among Denney corrections officers — in addition to sexual harassment.

In February, Gipson and two Denney supervisors lodged a formal complaint, claiming they were being subjected to racist treatment at work. All three men are black. The county has authorized a massive internal investigation to sort out the accusations. They hired Mill Creek attorney Marcella Fleming Reed to do the work. On Wednesday, the County Council voted to increase Reed’s contract by $40,000, bringing the total so far to $390,000. To vet what people are saying, Reed and her staff have interviewed just about everyone who works at Denney. Investigators have identified 13 separate complaints accusing 21 co-workers of misconduct, county

downstream, he entered the river and was able to grab Kyle. The boy was cold, frightened and banged-up but otherwise all right. “I’m not a highly religious person, but I do believe he was put there by a higher power at that moment,” Melissa Gresham said. “He made a choice to act.” “I would say I kept my head,” Ryner said. “I just did what I hoped anybody would do.” Ryner, an elevator mechanic who has had extensive emergency training, said Kyle’s father helped him by also following the boy along the riverbank. Sally Ryner recalled seeing the Oregon family before Kyle’s accident. “We had crossed the log bridge, which I thought was a little bit terrifying,” she said. Hiking to a viewpoint, they had

passed the Greshams. “I saw that family cross over the bridge. In the middle of the bridge, I saw Kyle slip through. All I could do was scream in horror,” she said. “Without hesitating, Brian handed me my son and took off,” Sally Ryner said. Knowing her husband

would go into the river, she didn’t know if she would see him again. There was no cellphone service there, so Sally Ryner called 911 from a pay phone. “When we made it back to our campsite, I could see Brian coming through the

woods. He was wet head to toe,” she said. “All he said was, ‘I got him.’ ” Brian Ryner remembers his wife screaming about seeing Kyle fall. Running back to the river, he saw Ryan, in a red shirt, tumbling in the water. “I’d just see an arm, then

human resources director Bridget Clawson said. They’ve talked to 76 witnesses and performed 171 interviews. The investigation has driven up labor costs as employees cover shifts for co-workers who are being interviewed or are on administrative leave. This year’s overtime expenses at Denney exceed $89,000, said Karen Gahm, budget and fiscal manager for Superior Court. Investigators are working on 12 separate reports totaling about 800 pages, not counting numerous exhibits, Clawson said. The county expects the reports to be complete in early 2015. When ready, the findings should help identify ways to better run the facility and additional worker

training, Terwilliger said. “On an individual basis, there’s a likelihood that we may pursue some disciplinary action against some of the individuals named in this report,” he said. Any disciplinary action must comply with the terms of union contracts, which spell out due-process employment rights. Snohomish County has paid an unprecedented amount of legal settlements in 2014. Before the Denney settlement, the total was approaching $3.9 million to resolve suits over car crashes, a jail death and public records disputes, among others.

a leg,” he said. As he ran along the river, the bank was too steep to reach the water. “I jumped on a tree branch and got on the other side” of the river, Ryner said. Kyle was in view but looked lifeless, floating on his back. At that point, Doug Gresham was on the opposite bank. His position helped Ryner know where Kyle was. Farther downstream, Ryner waded into four feet of water. “There were two rocks in the river. He needed to come between these two rocks for me to have a chance of getting him. Farther to the right was white water,” he said. At last, “he just ran right into me. As soon as he hit me, I grabbed onto him.” Ryner figures he was in the water only five seconds before grabbing Kyle. The boy was crying, and Ryner said his first words were, “ ‘Hey, wave to your dad. Let him know you’re OK.’ ” They got sweatshirts from other campers to warm the boy. After the

rescue, medics arrived and checked Kyle’s condition. He had scrapes and bruises but was fine. The next day, the families met at Paradise in the national park to take pictures. After that, the Greshams went on to a family wedding in Yakima, where Kyle was the ring bearer. Kyle rarely talks about what happened, but his mother said he will write about it for school assignments. If they could live that day again, Melissa Gresham said, her family “would do a lot of things differently.” They did get some things right. It helped that Kyle wore a red shirt, making him visible. And he had taken swimming lessons, starting as a baby. “He was not afraid of the water,” she said. As for Kyle’s rescuer, Melissa Gresham said, “I feel he did what a parent would do for their own child — but he did it for ours.” Julie Muhlstein: 425339-3460; jmuhlstein@ heraldnet.com.

First charter school is struggling Associated Press SEATTLE — Washington’s first charter school is struggling months after opening its doors. The principal of First Place Scholars resigned in November. More than half of its board of directors has left. And the Washington State Charter School Commission has identified more than a dozen potential problems the school must fix, The Seattle Times reported in Wednesday’s newspaper. Those problems include not

hiring a qualified special-education teacher for the about two-dozen students who need those services, since a contract instructor left the school at the end of October. The school also has failed to complete background checks on some nonteaching staff, its fire-drill plans were out-of-date and the school’s main office had no documentation of any teachers’ certification. The commission, which meets Thursday in Tacoma, is in charge of approving and overseeing most

of the state’s charter schools. The commission has approved seven other charter schools, with six scheduled to open in fall 2015. Spokane Public Schools, which also has been approved to authorize charter schools, has approved two more schools scheduled to open in 2015. Members of the statewide commission say they are hopeful that First Place will turn itself around and that the school is on track to complete its corrective action plan on time. But if it doesn’t, the school

will face stricter negotiations that could ultimately lead to its closure. Joshua Halsey, the commission’s executive director, said his group takes the problems seriously. “We’re monitoring this very closely,” he said. First Place was the first charter to open in part because it wasn’t starting from scratch. It had long been a private elementary school, founded initially to See CHARTER, Page B2

When mega-brewers move in Sale of Oregon craft brewery provokes backlash from connoisseurs By Jeff Barnard Associated Press

BEND, Ore. — The Facebook page of a local brewery lit up with condemnations: Loyal beer drinkers said the brewers were greedy “sellouts.” Some fans threatened to boycott the brand. One declared he would stop wearing a T-shirt promoting the beer. What did the brewers do to provoke such a backlash? Change the hops or yeast? Abandon a favorite ale recipe? No, the furor erupted after 10 Barrel Brewing announced last month that it was being bought by the world’s largest brewer, AnheuserBusch InBev, which to the horror of craft-beer enthusiasts, makes Budweiser and Bud Light. The acquisition was another example of mega-brewers trying to counter declining sales by tapping into the growth of small craft breweries. And it drew the ire of devoted customers who blasted the corporation as an enemy of the craft beer industry and “the worst guys in the game.” People in and around Bend take their beer seriously. Since its first craft brewery opened in 1988, this city of 80,000 has grown from a struggling timber town to a trendy destination featuring skiing, golf, fly fishing and mountain biking, all of which can be capped off at the end of the day with a fine, locally brewed craft beer. The city and the surrounding area now claim nearly 30 breweries, many with owners looking for fulfillment in the beer, not the bottom line. The owners of 10 Barrel, twin brothers Chris and Jeremy Cox and Garrett Wales, say AnheuserBusch was already handling their distribution. The idea of selling their operation came up over a few beers. They promise nothing will change. “We are really good at some things, like brewing cool beer and having fun,” Chris Cox said. “Other things, businesswise, we are not so great at. So it’s

Brewmaster Larry Sidor discusses some of his creations at Crux Fermentation Project’s brew pub in Bend, Oregon, on Nov. 18.

One beermaker, 10 Barrel Brewing Co., recently announced it is being bought by Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer. Sidor worries that major corporations buying craft brewers will ultimately lead to the “commoditization” of craft beer.

going to be a great partnership.” Along with the criticism, the brewery’s Facebook page also offered sincere congratulations from fans happy to see a local institution strike a lucrative deal. While nationwide beer sales declined 1.9 percent last year, craft beer sales rose 17.2 percent, according to the Brewers Association, which represents craft brewers. The industry’s two giants, Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors, have lost a total 20 million barrels in sales since 2008, said Bart Watson, an economist for the group. Anheuser-Busch craft beer CEO Andy Goeler said the company wants 10 Barrel to “continue to do more of what they are doing” and praised the brewery’s “amazing portfolio of beers.” See BEER, Page B2

Garrett Wales, a 10 Barrel Brewing Co. partner, stands in the company’s brewery in Bend, Oregon. “We are really good at some things, like brewing cool beer and having fun,” co-owner Chris Cox said of the company’s sale to Anheuser-Busch InBev. “Other things, businesswise, we are not so great at. So it’s going to be a great partnership.”

Utility blames carp for muddy Long Lake By Becky Kramer The Spokesman-Review

SPOKANE — Carp are mud grubbers, rooting through the sediment at the bottom of Long Lake as they search for food. “They’re like little plows,” said Chris Donley, a fisheries manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “They turn up the bottom of the lake until they find something worth swallowing.” Donley has long wondered how the opportunistic carp — known for muddying waters — affect water quality in the 24-mile-long reservoir behind Long Lake Dam on the Spokane River. Next year, results from an Avista Utilities study should provide some answers. Avista was tasked with improving dissolved oxygen levels for

native fish in the reservoir as part of Long Lake Dam’s relicensing process. That led to questions about the non-native carp, which were introduced to Western lakes in the early 1900s. “They’re notorious for degrading water quality,” said Meghan Lunney, Avista’s aquatic resource specialist. The Spokane-based utility’s study will determine if the carp are having a measurable effect on the reservoir. Long Lake doesn’t meet state water quality standards, which has triggered a regionwide plan to reduce phosphorus and improve oxygen levels in the reservoir, including stricter discharge standards for sewage treatment plants, bans on phosphorus-rich detergents and efforts to control See CARP, Page B2

Donations from pot auction finally find a home PROSSER — A marijuana grower who had trouble giving away $14,000 has finally someone to accept the donations. Fireweed Farms owner Randy Williams of Prosser made $600,000 last month in the first recreational pot auction in Washington and wanted to share some of the proceeds. The Prosser School District said no thanks; it would send the wrong message. The Prosser branch of the Boys and Girls Club also just said no to drug money, saying it would distract from its mission. Williams told the Yakima HeraldRepublic he finally gave $1,000 to the Prosser VFW post and $13,000 to a local needy family, which asked not to be identified.

Seattle: Nyland hired at schools chief The Seattle School Board has voted 5-2 to keep interim chief Larry Nyland as the permanent leader of the Seattle school district. The Seattle Times reported that the board initially thought it would conduct a national search after former Superintendent Jose Banda left Seattle to take a job with the Sacramento Unified School District. However, Sharon Peaslee and other board members have said they think Nyland’s background in other districts makes him a good fit for Seattle. School board President Sherry Carr praised Nyland not only for his “last 17 weeks in Seattle Public Schools but his past 40 years in education.” Nyland, 66, ran school districts in Marysville and Pasco before retiring in 2013. He has led the Seattle district on an interim basis since August. Wednesday’s vote authorizes Carr to negotiate a contract with Nyland. The board will vote on that contract in January.

Man pleads guilty in fatal bar shooting A 21-year-old man who served time for the 2008 death of a street performer has pleaded guilty in an unrelated fatal shooting at a Bellevue bar. Ja’Mari Alexander Jones pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder in King County Superior Court on Wednesday. The Seattle Times said prosecutors plan to recommend an 18-year prison term when Jones is sentenced Jan. 9. DeShawn Milliken was fatally shot on Christmas Eve 2012 at Munchbar in Bellevue Square Mall as hundreds of people, including some Seahawks players, celebrated a football victory. Jones was arrested Jan. 2 in a stolen car in Lakewood. Jones was one of three juveniles convicted of manslaughter in 2009 in the killing of Ed McMichael, a Seattle street musician known as Tuba Man.

Oregon: Bad weeds

AVISTA

A transmitter is implanted in a carp caught and released in Long Lake for a fisheries study near Spokane. The Avista utility suspects carp are to blame for poor water quality in the reservoir behind Long Lake Dam on the Spokane River.

A new study shows two dozen of Oregon’s most significant invasive noxious weeds cause an estimated annual loss of about $83.5 million to the state’s economy. Losses include livestock deaths, reduced cattle foraging and wildlife grazing, smaller crop yields, decreased quality of seed and crop, and even the loss of available fishing and hunting opportunities.

Felon killed prosecutor in rage By Dan Joling Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A convicted Alaska felon with a history of assaulting women was charged with first-degree murder Wednesday in the shooting death of an assistant state prosecutor in Barrow. Ronald Fischer, 47, was arraigned in the death of Brian Sullivan, an assistant district attorney in the country’s northernmost community. In a charging document, North Slope Borough police said Fischer shot Sullivan twice in the head in a jealous rage over the estranged mother of Fischer’s children, with whom Sullivan had started dating. “Police believe that Fischer shot Sullivan twice in the face with a 20-gauge shotgun from a distance estimated at 10 feet (or less), as Sullivan was seated on a couch,” said Lt.

Travis Welch in an affidavit accompanying the criminal complaint. Sullivan was found with his feet crossed, Welch said, suggesting he made no attempt to confront the shooter or flee. “In other words, Fischer shot a man who was seated, unarmed, and who posed no threat,” Welch said. Online court records did not indicate an attorney had been appointed for Fischer. Barrow attorney Robert Campbell, who represented Fischer in a felony case this year, said Wednesday that he would not be representing Fischer in the murder case. Sullivan was a former Army attorney and a former state legislator. He served in the Washington House of Representatives from January 1997 to January 2001, representing Tacoma. Security video footage from a store across from the 37-year-old woman’s

home showed Fischer entering before the shooting and exiting afterward, Welch wrote. He gave this account of the events: The woman began dating Sullivan on Nov. 21. She was under the impression, she said, that Fischer was comfortable with her relationship and was being civil for their children. One Monday, she met Sullivan to work out at Barrow High School. Fischer also was there. He looked upset, she said, but didn’t say anything. Sullivan and the woman drove in separate vehicles to her home to eat dinner and watch a movie. He was in her living room as she showered. Afterward, as she dressed in her bedroom, she heard a door close. She heard Fischer say, “Who are you?” and then a gunshot. She hid in her bedroom closet. Fischer, she said, holding a shotgun covered by a jacket, found her. She

lunged at the shotgun and held onto it with him as they walked into the living room, where Fischer said, “Look at what you made me do.” Video footage showed the woman and Fischer clutching the gun as they exited the home. The woman jumped into Sullivan’s SUV and drove to the police department to report the shooting. A police dispatcher began taking calls from Fischer, crying and distraught. He told police his location and eventually surrendered. Since 1988, Fischer had been convicted for felony criminal mischief plus at least five misdemeanor assaults. He was free on bail from a July 14 assault in which he was charged with whipping a woman with a belt. On Sept. 21, he was charged with punching the woman in the shooting case in the face.

Warming in West Coast seas will send fish north, study concludes Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Warming seas will likely send West Coast fish species northward by about 20 miles a decade, and some species probably will disappear from southern ranges off California and Oregon, a new study says. The study, in the January issue of Progress in Oceanography, projects how 28

West Coast species ranging from sharks to salmon will react as greenhouse gases warm the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Warm-water species such as thresher sharks and chub mackerel will become more prominent off British Columbia and in the Gulf of Alaska, the study predicted. Food webs and behavior patterns will shift there as southern species move in,

according to the study by four marine experts at West Coast fishing research centers and universities. For the West Coast fishing industry, “the fish they depend on are going to move up north, and that means more travel time and more fuel will be needed to follow them. Or else they may need to switch to different target species,” Richard Brodeur, a study co-author and senior

scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said in a statement. “It may not happen right away, but we are likely to see that kind of trend,” Brodeur said. This year already saw Pacific Coast water temperatures rise 5 to 6 degrees above average, leading to sightings of tropical fish off California and giant sunfish off Alaska.

Carp: Harvesting of fish a possibility From Page B1

stormwater runoff. As part of that regionwide focus, “Avista’s going to quantify the value of removing fish,” Donley said. “It’s an innovative approach. We’ll see if they can pin part of the problem on carp.” Long Lake’s carp population made headlines in July 2012, when thousands

of bloated carp carcasses washed up on beaches. More than 12,000 pounds of rotting fish were eventually hauled away to a compost facility in Lincoln County. State wildlife officials tested the carp for a virus but eventually blamed the mass die-off on a sudden warming of lake temperatures that put additional stress on the fish

during spawning. That kind of extreme event certainly impacts water quality, Lunney said. But Avista’s researchers are equally interested in the number of carp in the reservoir, their grubbing behavior and the phosphorus they excrete in their waste. Phosphorus fertilizes abundant aquatic plant growth in Long Lake, and the lake’s dissolved oxygen levels later plummet when the plants decay. The carp’s foraging and spawning activities stir up phosphorus that has sunk to the bottom of the lake, making it available to plants again. The fish also

excrete a potent form of phosphorus that aquatic plants readily absorb, Lunney said. Avista expects to release the study results to the Washington Department of Ecology in February. If the carp are having a significant effect on the reservoir, Avista would work with state fish biologists to knock back populations. “You can’t eradicate them completely,” Lunney said. “We’d be looking at netting them or hooking up with a commercial carp fishery to harvest them.” Carp are sold in some ethnic grocery stores, and their eggs are also consumed, Donley said.

serve homeless students, in partnership with Seattle Public Schools. The K-5 school focuses on students who have been homeless or have experienced other traumas. Classes have 14-15 students each. Becoming a charter is helping it expand from about 45 students to up to 100. Halsey, the state charter commission’s executive director, chalked some of First Place’s problems up to being the state’s first charter school. “It’s one thing for a district to open a new school — it’s a whole different story when you talk about a whole district being established,” Halsey said. “And that’s pretty much what these charter schools are.” Steve Sundquist, the

Beer From Page B1

Other brewers are wary, especially in Oregon, which has 181 breweries and where craft beer accounts for 40 percent of beer consumed — tops in the nation. They’re especially leery in Bend, where the town’s beer-themed creation story is recited by native and newcomer alike. Located in sunny central Oregon and framed by the snow-capped Cascade Range, Bend was laid low in the 1980s by logging cutbacks to protect the northern spotted owl and salmon. Gary Fish was a California restaurateur looking for a new cool place and landed in Bend. He opened a brewpub in 1988 that quickly became the after-fun place of choice. It evolved into Deschutes Brewery, Bend’s biggest, producing more than 300,000 barrels of beer in two dozen varieties. It distributes coast to coast. 10 Barrel started out with a bar on the outskirts of downtown. In 2006, its owners started a small brewery under the motto: “Brew beer, drink beer and have fun doing it!” Their beers became a hit, and their new brewery produces 42,000 barrels sold in Oregon, Idaho and Washington state. Their pub on the trendy West Side of Bend turned into one of the hottest spots in town, where people wait 90 minutes for a chance to sit at the bar watching

charter commission chairman, said Tuesday that he didn’t think First Place’s troubles represent a setback for the state’s charter-school movement. “This will not be the only case of struggle,” he said. “But I believe ultimately we’re going to see a successful story here.” On Dec. 1, Halsey notified the school that it was putting students’ health, safety and educational welfare at risk, and gave First Place until Dec. 10 to submit a plan for how to get back on track. At a board meeting Tuesday, Dawn Mason, the new president of the board, said the school expects to be held accountable. “We’re able to do it. We have board members with the credentials to do the work,” she said, adding that the corrective action plan shows how seriously the state charter commission is taking its job.

the snow gently falling through an open garage door behind the bartender. They also have a pub in Boise, Idaho, and another opening in Portland’s hip Pearl District. “The craft brewers came to the rescue of beer in the world,” said Larry Sidor, who served a stint as brew master at Deschutes, then started Crux Fermentation Project, where he is experimenting with extreme strains of yeast, hops and other ingredients. The acquisition deals “are really about trying to make beer a commodity again. They are sucking the life out of the brands.” But as the craft beer market matures and the original brewers get older, Fish said he expects many to look for someone — even a giant like Anheuser-Busch — to take over. “I think you’re going to see more of this for sure,” Fish said. Anheuser-Busch made two earlier craft acquisitions: Goose Island Beer Co. in Chicago and Blue Point Brewing Co. on Long Island, New York. InBev also has a one-third share in a Northwest group that produces Red Hook, Widmer and Kona beers. Philip Gorman, a senior equity analyst at Morningstar Inc. said he expects the portfolio of multination brewers to eventually “look like a patchwork quilt,” with different brands for different markets and more national distribution. In Bend, Patric Douglas sipped a Deschutes Jubelale at Crow’s Feet Commons, which sells beer, bikes and snowboards. He said the entrepreneur in him cheers 10 Barrel’s success. The beer lover in him worries. “If we start selling our identity whole cloth, we are going to lose it,” Douglas said.

Everett G&CC pulls out of County Am Citing legal concerns and potential loss of private-club status, Everett G&CC will no longer host tournament. By Rich Myhre Herald Writer

As best anyone can recall, the Snohomish County Amateur golf tournament has visited Everett Golf and Country Club for one of three rounds throughout the tournament’s entire 84-year history. That will change in 2015. Everett G&CC has announced that it will no longer host the

Memorial Day-weekend County Am because of legal concerns stemming from a recent Spokane County Superior Court case involving Spokane Country Club. Four Spokane CC female members filed a lawsuit claiming gender discrimination at their club. A central issue in the suit, which was decided in favor of the women last year, was whether Spokane CC was truly a private club or a public accommodation

subject to state discrimination laws. Because the County Am is open to the public, Everett G&CC officials fear a continued association with the tournament will jeopardize its private-club status. Even so, the decision to part company with the County Am was difficult and, in some cases, unpopular. “The County Am has been a big part of all our lives,” Everett G&CC board president Doug Lauer said. “I’m a past winner (1976 and 1984) and I was part of it for 25 years. … But to be in

compliance with being a private club, we’ve decided to cut back on outside tournaments that are open to the public. “It’s a tough decision for all of us,” he said. “We love the tournament. But the most important thing for us is to protect the private status of the club.” Attorneys Don Carter and Mike Ferring, both recent Everett G&CC board members, said the Spokane decision left the club little recourse but to alter its policy regarding outside tournaments. See GOLF, Page C6

SAN DIEGO — A twitter report suggesting friction between the Mariners and right-handed pitcher Taijuan Walker drew a quick, firm denial Wednesday from general manager Jack Zduriencik at the Winter Meetings. “It’s so far from the truth,” Zduriencik said. “There’s absolutely no truth in it whatsoever. It’s ridiculous.” Zduriencik’s comments came in response to a tweet by ESPN. com analyst Keith Law, who once served as a frontoffice official in Toronto. Law tweeted: “Couple of execs told me that they Taijuan think the Mariners Walker have soured on Taijuan Walker’s makeup, in part due to his behavior in the AFL.” Walker, 22, made two starts for Surprise in the Arizona Fall League before opting to return home to begin his regular offseason conditioning program. “Physically, he was throwing 100 miles an hour,” Zduriencik said. “He had given us two really good starts at the end of the (regular season), and two really good starts in the Arizona Fall League. “It was just to a point where, ‘OK, it’s to the point where I need to get into my offseason program.’ “We’re very pleased with Taijuan Walker. This is a great young man, a very talented kid who is going to be a part of this thing for years to come.” Law addressed Zduriencik’s response in a subsequent tweet: “Also think both can be true.

Seattle cornerback Tharold Simon (27) has made the most of increased playing time because of an injury to nickel corner Jeremy Lane.

ENTON — At one point during the Seattle Seahawks’ victory in Philadelphia, second-year cornerback Tharold Simon looked around and almost had to pinch himself. Two years removed from playing at LSU, and after missing all of his rookie season with foot injuries, Simon had what he described as a “Man, I’m really in the NFL” moment when it occurred to him that he was on the field with three of the best

Stingy Royals hold off Panthers in defensive battle Lynnwood tops Snohomish 45-28 in first major test of season By Aaron Lommers Herald Writer

BOTHELL — For 16 minutes, the Lynnwood girls basketball team got all it could handle from a hungry Snohomish team that had lost its first two games of the season. Unfortunately for the Panthers, they needed another 16. Lynnwood held the Panthers to just nine points after halftime and turned a close game into a blowout, winning 45-28 on Wednesday. “I expected us to play a little

bit better offensively and execute a little bit better than we did, but it was the first time we’ve faced adversity and that’s the reason we scheduled tough non-league games,” Lynnwood head coach Everett Edwards said. “We faced that adversity in the first quarter and in the first half and at halftime we made a few adjustments and the girls came out and executed offensively and picked up their intensity on defense and did a great job that way.” The Royals had won their first two games by 54 and 67 points respectively. The Panthers made

it clear early that Lynnwood wasn’t going to run away with another one. In most games, the Royals use their full-court pressure defense to build an early lead — that strategy didn’t work against the Panthers. Four minutes into the game Snohomish led 2-1 and it was clear the game would be a defensive battle. “Sometimes it’s not easy to score buckets if you can’t get easy transition buckets and turn them over,” Edwards said. “It’s the first See ROYALS, Page C3

eports circulating through the local salmon fishing fraternity indicated this could be an excellent winter blackmouth season in the San Juan Islands, and top anglers responded by snapping up all 100 team tickets for last weekend’s Resurrection Derby out of Friday Harbor. It was the first sellout — 100 boats and 300plus anglers — in the event’s five-year history, according to derby chairman Chris Long, owner of Jolly Mon Charters in Anacortes. And the competitors got their money’s worth. A whopping two-day total of 413 hatchery chinook were entered, and that doesn’t count smaller fish and released wildstock blackmouth. “This year’s derby is one for the record book and can only be described as epic,” Long said. “The weather was perfect, with overcast skies and flat water allowing participants to fish throughout the islands and even out on the banks.” Shaw Island resident Pete Nelsen topped the leader board on the first day with an impressive fish of 18.22 pounds, but it wasn’t going to be enough. The second day brought in Bellingham angler Steve Martin with an 18.89-pound fish to nail the top spot and the $10,000 first-place prize. Only a step behind was Bill Havland of Everson, with his third-place fish of 17.27 pounds. By way of comparison, last year’s winning blackmouth weighed 16.9 pounds. The hot area seemed to be the north and west sides of Orcas Island, along President Channel between Orcas and Waldron Islands. Charter

My friend Jim Brauch — military veteran and retired policeman — is one of the best trout fishermen in at least three counties, and he likes Lake Sammamish in the winter. The big King County lake puts out really nice cutthroat up to 16 inches or better, along with 12- to 15-inch kokanee. The kokes must be released, and a special rule requires single barbless hooks from Jan. 1 through April 30. Brauch said the standard advice to beginning trollers on Sammamish is to “fish around the weather buoy (halfway down the lake from the Sammamish State Park ramp) at 30 to 40 feet deep, with a Wedding Ring lure behind a small dodger.” He’s been experimenting, however, and has found better areas and better lures. He now prefers the north side of the lake, about three-quarters of the

owner Jay Field said “President Channel was chock-a-block with fish, from Spring Pass to Point Doughty. West Beach on Orcas was good.” The winning fish reportedly was caught off Point Thompson on Orcas Island’s north side, on herring. Green whole herring was a popular choice, as were Kingfisher and Coho Killer spoons in various shades of green and green/white, along with the “cop car” pattern. Only hatchery fish are allowed in the derby. Net proceeds go to the sponsoring Fidalgo-San Juan Island Chapter of Puget Sound Anglers and are earmarked for the club’s various salmon enhancement projects. Among other things, the money helps fund the private salmon hatchery in Eastsound. Said former derby chairman Kevin Klein: “Putting more chinook in the water for both fisher folk and orcas is a win-win cause.” The club meets the third Tuesday of each month, at Village Pizza in Anacortes, starting at 6:30 p.m. The Resurrection Derby is one of the stops in the Northwest Salmon Derby Series.

Maybe M’s aren’t down on him. Other teams believe they are b/c he’s available in trade.” Walker entered last spring ranked by Baseball America as the organization’s top prospect before a sore shoulder forced him to open the season on the disabled list. He didn’t make his first bigleague start until June 30 and spent much of July and August at Triple-A Tacoma before rejoining the Mariners in September. Walker finished 2-3 with a 2.61 earned-run average in 38 innings covering eight games, including five starts. He projects as a strong candidate for next year’s rotation. “Quite frankly, I thought he did a tremendous job in September for us,” manager Lloyd McClendon said, “and (he) certainly has earned the right to come into spring training and compete for a starting position.”

Montero’s comeback The first step in the Jesus Montero career-reclamation project is drawing rave reviews at the Mariners’ complex in Peoria, Ariz. “He’s worked extremely hard,” Zduriencik said. “He’s worked on a lot of days to the absolute point of exhaustion. “It was designed that way to try to get him in a position to go above and beyond anything he’s ever done before. I think that goal has been accomplished.” Montero, 25, punctuated a second straight disappointing season by engaging in an on-field incident Aug. 28 with club scout Butch Baccala while on a rehab assignment in Boise, Idaho. The Mariners responded by pulling Baccala off the road and then opting not to renew his contract. They put Montero on the suspended list and ordering him to undergo a lifechanging program in the offseason. The program addresses behavioral and weight issues in addition to stressing on-field drills in an effort to turn Montero, a former catcher, into a functional first baseman. “My message is he has to mentally see himself as a first baseman,” Zduriencik said. “He has to say to himself, ‘This is where I’m going to play.’ If he’s a DH some day, that takes care of itself.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Seattle’s Jesus Montero has impressed the team with his offseason workout program.

“But he has got to commit himself to being an adequate first baseman. If he can do that, the bat plays. He’s a big physical guy. It would make sense that if could play there, that would be a benefit to everybody.” Montero was viewed as one of the game’s top prospects when the Mariners acquired him nearly three years ago with pitcher Hector Noesi from the New York Yankees for pitchers Michael Pineda and Jose Campos. The initial returns were encouraging. Montero batted .260 in 2012 with 15 homers and 62 RBI in 135 games before his career spiraled downward. A position change, an injury and a drug-related suspension turned 2013 into a disaster, and he angered club officials by showing up last spring 40 pounds overweight. Montero spent most of last season at Triple-A Tacoma, where he batted .286 with 16 homers and 74 RBI in 97 games. “(Farm director) Chris Gwynn made a comment that there were times last year when he was the best hitter in Triple-A,” Zduriencik said. “But he’s got to maintain these things, and he’s had these other obstacles in his life that have prevented him from doing it.” Now, though, the Mariners are hopeful that Montero’s career is heading back up. “I think he views himself differently than he did a year ago,” Zduriencik said. “I think the process has been extremely painful, but I also think there are rewards at the end of this thing. “I don’t think there’s anything any of us would want more than for Jesus Montero to become a really good citizen and a really nice baseball player. The skills are there for him to do it.”

way down to the outlet of the Sammamish River, but said if you don’t know the water, a good way of finding fish is to troll back and forth across the lake at random until you hook a trout, and then work the area hard. He suggests staying closer to the surface than the 30- to 40-foot rule of thumb, shorten your leaders and be prepared to use different lures. A spoon without the dodger is excellent — Kingfishers in frog or fire tiger, and Dick Nites. Wedding Ring lures tipped with a grub or piece of worm take a lot of fish, 10 to 12 inches behind a small Dick Nite dodger or perhaps a Sling Blade. Brauch said his favorite lure is one he tied himself, a small, purple UV squid, followed by a bead and a small spinner. — Wayne Kruse

Smelt Another indication that the Cowlitz smelt (eulachon) run is perhaps on the rebound came recently as Cowlitz Tribal ecologist Nathan Reynolds reported catching (and releasing) 16 of the small fish in a fyke net deployment Dec. 1-2. The fyke net is a windsock-like device, often used to monitor downstream migrant salmon and steelhead. Reynolds said his staff also observed five seals in the area, and said they suspected an onset of the river’s eulachon run. The Cowlitz recreational smelt dip-net fishery was once a popular family-friendly activity, but a sharp decline in population triggered a closure several years ago, along with other protections for the run. Since then, according to state Fish and Wildlife biologist Joe Hymer in Vancouver, there have been indications that the population is increasing. “The return the past two years has been pretty good,” he said, “and there has also been research toward cutting the incidental catch of eulachon in the coastal shrimp fishery.” All sport and commercial fisheries for eulachon remain closed, and Hymer said it’s uncertain when or if Washington and Oregon resource managers will meet to discuss the situation.

Columbia salmon data The state Fish and Wildlife Department has released figures show-

ing that 2014 has been a banner year for salmon and steelhead anglers on the lower Columbia. There were 451,000 total angler trips to buoy 10 and the river below Bonneville Dam between February and October of 2014, a record fishery since at least 1982. They caught 71,000 chinook (the most since at least 1982), 16,000 steelhead, and 63,000 coho. The average number of chinook kept per angler trip was 0.40 for buoy 10; 0.15 for spring chinook on the river below Bonneville Dam; 0.09 for summer chinook; and 0.23 for fall chinook (the second-highest total since at least 1980).

Potholes Reservoir Mike Reichner and Mike Schmidt of Sequim visited MarDon Resort on Potholes Reservoir last week and bagged the Potholes Grand Slam — ducks, geese and walleye. Resort owner Mike Meseberg said the pair took near-limits of ducks on Tuesday, two goose limits by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, and caught a 10-pound walleye off the resort dock on Wednesday evening. The current warming trend has temporarily halted progress toward any ice fishing anywhere in the Potholes Recreation Area, Meseberg said. For ice fishing info, call the resort (509-3462651) between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Lead ammo ban In a release dated Dec. 3, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) said the California Fish and Game Commission is expected to move ahead immediately with regulations to implement AB711, the state law banning the use of traditional lead component ammunition in hunting. The NSSF and a coalition of hunting and sporting organizations opposed passage of AB711 in the California State Legislature, the release said. Since the law’s enactment, NSSF has urged the California Fish and Game Commission to allow the ammunition industry time to develop more alternatives and increase the supply of non-traditional ammunition, rather than continue on the current fast-track path.

Razor clams The next series of razor clam digs on the coast is for just five days, Dec. 19-23, but it boasts a couple of the best minus tides so far this winter, minus 1.3 feet on Dec. 22 and 23.

Full-time Morrison

MLB | Notebook

Logan Morrison is in line for full-time duty at first base after bouncing back from a two-month absence early in the season by producing a strong performance after the All-Star break. “Listen, I’ve always said that playing time is dictated on performance,” McClendon said, “and he performed very well. As we speak right now, I’d be very happy if things work out that he’s my regular first baseman.” Morrison, 27, batted .284 in 60 games after the break with a .341 on-base percentage and a .448 slugging percentage. He finished with season with a .262 average, 11 homers and 38 RBI in 99 games.

Lester, Cubs agree to $155M, 6-year contract

Bullish on Beimel McClendon remains hopeful the Mariners can re-sign situational lefty reliever Joe Beimel, who resurrected his career last season by compiling a 2.20 ERA in 56 appearances. “Yeah, I’ve made my feelings known that I like him,” McClendon said, “and I’d like to have him back. But that’s not my decision. “Obviously, the market is going to dictate a lot of that because he has such a good year this year, and the lefties’ (market) now, it might be a little difficult.”

Winter rumors Two rumors making the rounds on Wednesday: Washington is showing interest in shortstop Brad Miller, while Toronto is canvassing the Mariners in hopes of acquiring a reliever. The Nationals’ interest in Miller was reported by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports on twitter. Rosenthal said Washington is offering shortstop Ian Desmond, but the talks have “yet to gain traction.” Desmond, 29, batted .255 with 24 homers and 91 RBI in 154 games but will make $11 million next year before gaining free-agency eligibility after the season. n The looming trade sending veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins to the Los Angeles Dodgers from Philadelphia appears to further diminish the likelihood of the Mariners acquiring outfielder Matt Kemp. The Mariners once appeared close to a deal to get Kemp with a package that included Miller and outfielder Michael Saunders before the Dodgers pushed to include either Walker or James Paxton. Getting Rollins eliminates the need for the Dodgers to find a shortstop to bridge the gap to prospect Corey Seager, who batted .349 with 20 homers and 97 RBI in 118 games at Hi-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga. Seager is the younger brother of Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager.

Associated Press SAN DIEGO — Jon Lester agreed Tuesday night to a $155 million, six-year contract with the Cubs, the first big deal of the offseason involving a toplevel starting pitcher and one Chicago hopes will help end more than a century of frustration at Wrigley Field’s Friendly Confines. Lester’s contract, agreed to on the second day of baseball’s winter meetings, contains an option for 2021 that, if it becomes guaranteed, would make the deal worth $170 million over seven seasons. The average annual value of $25.8 million is the second-highest for a pitcher behind Clayton Kershaw’s $30.7 million as part of a $215 million, seven-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers that began this year. “It’s not often you get to win the lottery, and we won the baseball lottery this year,” new Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “Now it’s up to us to put it into effect.” A three-time All-Star who turns 31 next month, Lester won two World Series titles with Boston. Lester was dealt by the Red Sox to Oakland at the trade deadline in July and helped the A’s reach the playoffs for the third straight year before a 9-8, 12-inning loss to Kansas City in the AL wildcard game. He went 16-11 with a career-best 2.46 ERA and 220 strikeouts last season and is 11667 with a 3.58 ERA in nine big league seasons.

Baseball’s Hall of Fame made the announcement Wednesday at the winter meetings. Enberg has been calling Major League Baseball games in Southern California for nearly 20 seasons, split by stints as one of the most recognizable voices on NBC and CBS. Enberg, who turns 80 next month, is the 39th winner of the Frick Award.

for not just the rest of this season, but the future as well. “Growth,” Thomas said when asked what he has seen from Simon this year. “He’s having fun, his game is coming to life. He’s making big plays for us, he’s starting to understand what he’s got to do over there. That’s all it is, once you understand the scheme, you can play, because he’s a great player, great instincts.” Then Thomas made a really bold declaration, saying, “He has a chance to be our best corner as far as godgiven ability. Where Sherm separates himself is unbelievable, because he’s crazy up here (points to head). He’s a quarterback playing corner.” It’s incredibly premature to suggest that Simon will ever be as good as Sherman, who is a two-time first-team All-Pro, and will earn that honor again this season if voters are paying any attention. But that Thomas is even bringing up the idea, and that Carroll called Simon, “a wonderful draft pick for us,” this early in his career is another example of how Carroll has built the Seahawks into a championship-caliber team. While the Seahawks, like every team, have had some rookies come in and contribute, or even take on starting roles from Day 1, some of the most important players on Seattle’s Super Bowl-winning roster were mid-to-late round picks who developed over time. Sherman didn’t immediately start for the Seahawks; he began his rookie season as a third-stringer who helped on special teams. Chancellor, meanwhile, played almost exclusively on special teams as a rookie while backing up Lawyer Milloy, and now those two are core members of the NFL’s best defense. Starting receiver Jermaine Kearse took a similar path, as did tight end Luke Willson, who has taken over a starting role in Zach Miller’s absence; Maxwell went from backup to starter late last season and played well enough to make Brandon Browner expendable. Any team can find a star in the first round, but the difference between a good and a great season can be developing a fifth-round pick into a star, then doing it over and over again. Going back to his time at USC, Carroll realized that if you give a young player a small role early on, then let him develop, that player can be a big contributor late in a season. That’s what we’re seeing now in players like Simon and defensive tackle Jordan Hill, who missed most of last year because of injuries, and what the Seahawks hope will transpire with rookie receiver Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood, who have both taken on bigger roles as the season has gone on. “It’s a great example of it,” Carroll said of Simon. “That’s exactly the example of it. He’s just like a redshirt freshman, and he’s benefited from it. Right now, this is a great example, we’re talking about him like he’s a regular starter for us in our nickel, he can play on both sides, he could play on early downs as well. We have no hesitation of playing him. He’s accomplished that exact formula for us, and Jordan’s doing the same thing. It’s a formula that’s worked out for us in the past, and we’re seeing some examples of it now.” That formula explains why Hill didn’t appear to be doing much of anything early in the season, but now seems to come up with a big play or two in every game, including two sacks in the past three games. “During the beginning of the year (I felt like a rookie) a little bit, but as I kept going, I’ve just gotten more comfortable,” said Hill, who appeared in just four games last season. “The game’s starting to get a little slower for me. At the beginning of the year, the game was fast.” Simon is growing too, in part because of the experience on the field, and in part because of his relationship with Sherman, who he calls a big brother. Sherman isn’t just a mentor who can not only help Simon identify what the width of a receiver’s alignment might indicate on a play; he’s also someone who can also help calm Simon down after a penalty or a heated encounter with an opponent, something Simon knows he needs to work on. And while Sherman tries to help every young cornerback, he seems to have taken on a bigger mentorship role with Simon. “I think I saw a little bit of myself in him, and I also saw a little bit of Brandon Browner in some of his ways,” Sherman said. “He has the potential to be a great corner in this league, and I want him to be able to reach that potential, and anything I can do to help him, I’m trying to do.” Herald Columnist John Boyle: jboyle@heraldnet.com

NFL change personal conduct policy By Schuyler Dixon Associated Press

IRVING, Texas — NFL owners moved quickly and unanimously Wednesday to change the league’s personal conduct policy. Now the question is how, or whether, the players’ union responds. The league announced it will hire a special counsel for investigations and conduct to oversee initial discipline, but Commissioner Roger Goodell

will retain authority to rule on appeals. The commissioner also may appoint a panel of independent experts to participate in appeals. Amid questions over his handling of domestic violence cases involving Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson, the union wants Goodell removed entirely from the disciplinary process. The players believe any changes to the personal conduct policy should be part of labor negotiations.

Asked whether he anticipated a challenge from the union, Goodell deferred to NFL general counsel Jeff Pash, who said the owners’ decision was “entirely consistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” “I don’t know whether the union will challenge it or not, but we’ve given it a lot of thought,” Pash said. “And I would hope they don’t challenge. We’d be happy to sit down with them again tomorrow if they wanted to have some

further conversations about it. I don’t think there’s any need for legal challenges.” The union has sought negotiations with the NFL on any revamping of the policy, and said Tuesday it would “reserve the right to take any and all actions” should the owners act unilaterally. The union could consider the vote by owners a violation of the collective bargaining agreement reached in 2011, giving the union cause to file a grievance.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (25) talks with head coach Pete Carroll before a game against the Redskins earlier this season.

Seahawks’ Sherman tackles race relations By Gregg Bell The News Tribune

RENTON — Richard Sherman knows what’s at stake for the suddenly rolling Seattle Seahawks. Sunday’s home game against the seemingly free-falling San Francisco 49ers (7-6) is the latest roadblock for Seattle (9-4) to the roll it’s building toward the playoffs. The AllPro cornerback has been a cornerstone to the Seahawks’ revival with two interceptions and zero passes completed against him during this three-game winning streak. But Sherman also knows what’s at stake in the society around him. Professional athletes every day tend to produce the same general tone and perspective on upcoming games, recent games, opposing players and teammates and the like. The words are different, the issues may change. But the depth of insight and tenor of the views are generally the same. Then there’s Sherman. Wednesday, yet again, Sherman was remarkable in putting his personal thoughts into rich, unique words. His most insightful responses during his weekly press conference — the setting in which he mocked the NFL for its “hypocrisy” is a skit with a cardboard cutout of teammate Doug Baldwin two weeks ago — were not about football on the field. They were on what he sees as each NFL player’s social responsibility in our nation’s ongoing struggle with race relations and police interactions with minorities. That and Roger Goodell outlining a new personal-conduct policy on Wednesday for a vote by owners for implementation in the wake of this summer and fall’s huge Ray Rice domestic-violence issue. Sherman was asked if he or Seahawks players might make a public statement or act similarly as others in the NFL and NBA have, such as by wearing “I can’t breathe” inscribed on warmups shirts before recent games. Those gestures have been after the refusal of a grand jury in New York and another one in Missouri to charge white police officers with crimes in the deaths of African-American Eric Garner after a policeman’s choke hold on Staten Island and Michael Brown, who also was black, by being shot while unarmed in Ferguson, outside St. Louis. “It’s something that you talk about (in the locker room). ... But everyone has their own choice to make. It’s our duty as a nation to come together in these times and to recognize it,” Sherman said. “I don’t think, I don’t know how one individual gesture or even a team — there are a lot of guys making gestures that are very respectable and send out a message. “I think that being together and being great role models as players is our duty is the thing we can do. Not going out there and doing things that aren’t reputable. I think guys that are making a stand are admirable; they are doing a great job. The rest of us could make a stand like that. That would be fantastic. Because everyone should have the rights; no one should walk

out and be scared when they walk out of their house. If they aren’t breaking any laws they shouldn’t be fooled with.” Then Sherman got eloquent. Senatorial, even. “As a nation, we have our things to clean up,” Sherman said. “Until we get to that point, the best things we can do as players is to be great role models.” So one of the highest-profile players in the NFL doesn’t feel compelled to make a personal statement on a game day about the issues? “I feel like every time I try to make a personal statement people think I am being an individual and trying to bring attention to myself,” he said. “I think an issue like this, attention has been brought to it, to recognize the players’ statements. The biggest statement I can make is, be true to yourself. “There shouldn’t be these color lines. Racism ... everybody thinks it’s gone. And it’s not. The moment we recognize that as a nation is the moment we step forward — (it’s) the moment we recognize these moments as opportunities to take a step forward and improve our society. “But, you know, I could say that all day. What difference does it make unless a lot of people change?” How many professional athletes express social issues it that way? How many fingers do you have? Some Seahawks fans have been on socialmedia outlets such as Twitter encouraging the players to take some sort of stance at Sunday’s home game against the 49ers. Wednesday was the first coach Pete Carroll had heard of this. Carroll said he trusts his players to make the appropriate statements, to speak “from their heart” — if they choose — on these race-police issues. Carroll’s statement is a glimpse into why guys love playing for him. In the days leading up to the next, huge game in the Super Bowl champions’ defense of their title and chances for the postseason, instead of worrying about what other coaches call “distractions” Carroll is encouraging his players to be themselves. Whatever that ends up meaning Sunday, and beyond. “The fact there is a call out in the country is totally in order,” Carroll said. “People have very strong feelings about what’s going to, very well-grounded feelings. Everyone wants to see change. Our guys are pretty out-spoken guys, and I trust that they speak on behalf of the feelings in their heart and they’ll make whatever decisions that they need to make. And if we need to consult on that, we will. “It’s a very powerful time right now. It’s a lot going on, and everybody needs to be tuned into what’s going on. I know our guys are. They’re in the conversations; I hear them when we are traveling; these guys are talking about what’s going on around the country. They’re concerned. They are interested, and they’ve got people who are involved in some different place. “Changing times. Things are going crazy right now.”

Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen unexpectedly stepped down Wednesday to become head coach at Oregon State. Andersen, the Badgers’ coach for the past two seasons, informed the team of his decision Wednesday afternoon, the school said. Wisconsin finished 10-3 this season under Andersen and will play in the Outback Bowl against Auburn on Jan. 1. Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said the search for Andersen’s successor had already started. Alvarez said he would consider coaching the team in the bowl game himself after several players asked him, but had not made a final decision. Alvarez said Andersen made the move for personal reasons. Mike Riley left the Pac-12’s Beavers to accept the Nebraska job after the dismissal of Bo Pelini. Oregon State finished this season 5-7 and out of the postseason picture. Oregon State will introduce Andersen as the 28th coach in team history at a news conference Friday. The announcement of his hiring came the same day Oregon State announced extensive renovation plans for its football facilities. “We have hired the right coach,” Oregon State athletic director Bob De Carolis said. “We are investing in the new and expanded facilities he needs, including the $42 million makeover of the Valley Football Center we announced earlier today. We are ready to have Gary take us to the next level.” Andersen was 19-7 in his two seasons as Wisconsin’s coach. He came to the Badgers from Utah State, where he spent four seasons. He also had a short stint as head coach at Southern Utah in 2003 before becoming an assistant at Utah. He’s 49-38 overall as a head coach.

Wright wins Lombardi Award HOUSTON — Arizona sophomore linebacker Scooby Wright won the Lombardi Award on Wednesday night as the nation’s best lineman. Wright edged Clemson senior defensive end Vic Beasley, Washington senior linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha and Ohio State sophomore defensive end Joey Bosa for the award presented by the Rotary Club of Houston. Wright won the Bronko Nagurski Award on Monday night as the top college defensive player, and was the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. He’s also in the running for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. The 6-foot-1, 246-pound linebacker has 89 solo tackles — 27 tackles for losses — and 14 sacks to help the 12thranked Wildcats (10-3) earn a spot in the Fiesta Bowl against Boise State.

Newton won’t play Herald news services Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera on Wednesday officially ruled quarterback Cam Newton out of Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. Newton sustained two fractures in his lower back in a car accident on Tuesday and spent Tuesday night at Carolinas Medical Center. Newton was released Wednesday morning. But he will not play in Sunday’s home game against the Buccaneers. Backup Derek Anderson, who led the Panthers to a 20-14 win in the season opener, will get the start against the Bucs.

Seattle defender Jalil Anibaba was the only Sounder selected Wednesday in the Major League Soccer expansion draft used to stock Orlando City SC and New York City FC. “It’s hard to lose Jalil,” Seattle sporting director Chris Henderson said. “It’s hard in any of these to lose a player. We were expecting to lose two players, so in that respect it feels like it was a lucky day.” Anibaba had come to

“If you hold the club open to the public in a number of ways, and if you’re not practicing some exclusivity, it opens it up to be considered a public accommodation across the board,” Carter said. “When we examined it, the County Am creates a number of problems.” Private clubs are treated differently from public accommodations with respect to taxes, liquor sales, “and just about every portion of the business the club does as a private entity,” Carter said. Though a future court decision “could change” this interpretation, Ferring added, “our responsibility as a board was to protect that (private club) status.” According to Lauer, Everett G&CC is not alone. Fircrest Golf Club in Tacoma has dropped its decades-long association with the Tacoma Amateur golf tournament for the same reason, he said. Still, Everett G&CC’s decision will no doubt be disappointing to longtime County Am participants, including many club members. It is believed that one round of the tournament

Seattle in January as part of a trade with Chicago that also involved an exchange of draft choices and sent Sounders Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Patrick Ianni to the Fire. In his lone season in Seattle, Anibaba appeared in 16 games with 14 starts at central and outside defender. Last week, coach Sigi Schmid had listed him as a possible replacement for right back DeAndre Yedlin, who is expected to transfer to Tottenham of the English Premier League. Anibaba was taken in the

third round of the expansion draft, the fifth pick overall. After his selection, the Sounders were allowed to remove one player from the unprotected list, and they used that on veteran defender Zach Scott. “We felt for the balance of the team and Zach’s history with the club and everything around Zach Scott, we felt we needed to pull him back,” Henderson said. “We had a feeling he might have been taken. ... We’re hoping he can start next year where he finished off this year.”

has been played at Everett G&CC every year since the tournament began in 1931, and in most years the club has hosted the final round. “It’s kind of a shame,” said Bob Whisman, a fivetime County Am winner in the 1950s and 1960s, and later the longtime pro at Everett’s two public golf courses. “I’ll bet it’s been at Everett (G&CC) every year since it started.” For Alex Stamey, the tournament’s other five-time champion and an Everett G&CC member, the board decision “is a sad direction for the club to take. I’ve been playing in the tournament since 1998 when I moved here and it’s always a fun tournament. The tradition is obviously one of the great things about the County, and not being able to (play at Everett G&CC) because the club is being held hostage for something that might or might not happen from a lawyer’s perspective, it’s sad.” The decision by Everett G&CC’s nine-member board “is kind of catering to this unknown that might happen. … It doesn’t make sense to me,” Stamey said. Lauer understands, calling the decision “one of the toughest we’ve had since I’ve been a part of the club, and this is my second time on the board. (The County Am) is important to the

community and it’s important to us … but we have to protect our club.” For now, Snohomish County’s other private golf club, Mill Creek Country Club, is not taking the same stance as Everett G&CC. Mill Creek CC has hosted the County Am off and on in recent years, including this year’s tournament, and will continue to do so in the future, though not in 2015. “We still want to be involved (with the County Am),” Mill Creek CC general manager Cory Carper said. “We just don’t want to be involved every year.” Club officials are still evaluating the Spokane CC case, he added, “but we still haven’t made any decisions on it.” The County Am has two courses already committed for 2015 — Everett’s Legion Memorial Golf Course and Mukilteo’s Harbour Pointe Golf Club. According to tournament director Jason Himple, a third course will be announced at a later date. The loss of Everett G&CC from the tournament rotation “is a concern,” Himple said. “Losing Everett is probably going to hurt on a participation level. But the tournament itself and the notoriety the tournament has should be enough to keep it going and keep it successful.”

Huntington helped start the Snohomish Historical Society Parlour Tour years ago. This year, she will be showing off her own parlor featuring her giant collection of sock monkeys.

The sock monkey on the right (red vest) was Huntington’s first. She received it 56 years ago when a friend gave it to her son when she lived in Chicago.

nutcrackers and other holiday icons. Huntington collects sock monkeys. Actually, she collects Santas, too, but it’s the monkeys that separate this house from others. You can see the monkey party on the Dec. 14 Snohomish Historical Society Parlour Tour that has seven homes, each decorated in an unique way. As for Huntington’s monkeys, no two are alike. “These didn’t come from a factory. They are all Grandma-made,” said Huntington, 80.

Herald Writer

SNOHOMISH — It’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys. More than 100 sock monkeys gather around this Christmas tree. Monkeys in overalls, sweaters, suits or in the buff. Monkeys drinking tea. Monkeys kicked back in chairs. Monkeys hugging. They all look so cheery, these button-eyed stuffed toys whose red lips were once red heels. “They are happy to have a home,” said Darlene Huntington. Some people collect angels,

radition claims that it was the bubonic plague in the 14th century that inspired the creation of beer steins. Many people had noticed that there were more deaths in filthy places in town than in clean sections, and that there were clouds of insects along with the illness in Central Europe. By the early 1500s, laws had been passed that all food and beverages served in public must be covered to keep insects away. The common

drinking glass was a mug, so a hinged lid with a thumb-lift was added — and the stein was created. Since beer was already a common beverage and its taste was improved when lids helped prevent spoilage, beer consumption increased and so did the manufacture of steins. Steins were made of pewter, wood, stoneware and, for the very wealthy, ivory. Painted or carved decorations were added. A 1-liter stein made of carved ivory with scenes of

Spotlight on heating systems

DECEMBER Is All About

STAYING WARM MONTH!

Whether they use natural gas, ethanol, propane, wood, pellets, or electricity, fireplaces and stoves are second to none where coziness and comfort are concerned.

The cost of installing a heating system in a home and paying for the ongoing heating costs is a major chunk of a family’s budget. The purchase, as well as the annual operating costs and maintenance of equipment, can entail a lot of expense. Here are a few heating systems that combine savings with cozy pleasure. Fireplaces and stoves Fireplaces and stoves have no equal in coziness and comfort, whether they use natural gas, ethanol, propane, wood, pellets, or electricity, and whether they are built-in, prefabricated, freestanding, traditional or modern. Before choosing a heating system, compare the characteristics of different fuels and available models. Electric baseboards and linear induction With programmable electronic thermo-

Radiant heating This type of system does not heat the air but rather the walls, floors, windows and furniture. All of these elements store the heat and then release it into the air, providing exceptional and longlasting comfort. This is an invisible heating system that can be installed in floors, walls or ceilings.

stats, electric baseboard and linear induction heating systems allow you to economize on heating costs without compromising on comfort. During the winter, each room can be heated independently.

Landscaping

Heat pumps, central heating systems, and other devices all have their advantages and disadvantages. Before making your choice, consider your specific needs and your budget. And don’t forget to take into account the environment — a heating system that is both efficient and green is possible. Some advice? Before you start spending, talk to the in-store experts.

Should you shovel snow yourself or hire out? T

o DIY or not to DIY — that’s the first question to answer about snow removal. Either way, my team has you covered with tips from top-rated experts. If you plan to shoulder all or some of this seasonal chore, take steps to stay healthy: If you don’t already have a snowblower, consider getting one. Otherwise, get a lightweight, plastic snow shovel with an ergonomic handle to help distribute the load. Use a shovel with a deep scoop to push snow, not lift it. Cold weather restricts blood flow. Before shoveling, warm up by jogging in place and stretching. Also,

But they weren’t made by this grandma. “I was a nail-pounder and paint-stripper,” she said. “I restored old houses.” She got into the monkey business by accident. “Years ago, when we lived in Chicago one of my friends gave my son who is now 56 a little sock monkey,” she said. “He didn’t take an interest in it, but I did.” There was something about those kitschy, cute toys with dangling arms, hand-stitched eyelashes and whimsical expressions. She started adding members to the tribe by scouring yard sales and thrift shops.

Kovel of the 20th century. The handle curves back and turns under. There is a red cross on the back of the handle stamped, “Red Cross Medicine Spoon JB & SM Knowles, Prov., RI, USA.” The gold-washed bowl ends in a pouring spout and is marked on the back “Pat. 1901, Sterling 925/1000.” What’s it worth? A: Your medicine spoon, patented in 1901, was sold by druggists. The bent handle allows the spoon to rest level on a table so a teaspoon of medicine can be poured into it. J.B. & S.M. Knowles of Providence, R.I., was in business from 1875 until 1905. Your spoon is worth about $150. Q: I have some Hess toy trucks from the 1960s and ’70s. I think Hess Corp. releases a new toy nearly every holiday season. Are mine worth much?

The monkeys fit nicely around the tree. The rest of the year, they live in plastic boxes. No, they don’t jump on the bed. “I am used to them,” said Dan, her husband of 61 years. “It is her gig. It is pretty tasteful. It takes her a long time.” She admits she’s not one to do anything in moderation, especially around the holidays. She was instrumental in starting the parlor tour years ago as a way to raise money for the historical society. For years, it was limited to parlors in downtown homes. Her place sits on five acres by the Snohomish River valley, with a massive garden that has been on garden tours. This is the first time her menagerie of monkeys has been available for

avoid a big meal or smoking just before shoveling, as either will affect blood flow. It’s better to repeatedly remove smaller quantities of snow than it is to move large amounts at once. If snow is already deep, remove it in layers. As you shovel, keep your back straight, bend at the knees and use the strength in your hips and thighs to lift or push snow. Don’t twist. If you have health problems, ask someone healthier to do the job or hire a snow removal service. Many landscaping companies offer this in the offseason. Don’t delay your search; quality companies

The 1970-’71 fire engine can sell for close to $500 if you have the original box, and the 1966 tanker ship with its box lists for well over $1,000. Q: I have a Jim Beam decanter that’s shaped like

often have a long list of existing customers. Start by contacting companies that neighbors recommend and/or that have good reviews on a trusted online site. Questions to ask: How much snow will trigger service? This is a good idea particularly if you only want service when a big storm strikes. Also, tell the company if you have special needs that should give you plowing priority. One top-rated landscaper said 3 inches of snow triggers service, and that he plows individual driveways only after he’s cleared streets for neighborhood association clients. What do you charge?

n Be careful with de-icing products. For instance, sodium chloride, or rock salt, is typically the cheapest de-icer, but doesn’t do well in temperatures below 25 degrees and can create a toxic chemical imbalance if it leaches into soil. Calcium chloride, which can be three times as costly as rock salt, does well in lower temperatures and is considered less harmful to vegetation. However, it can create a residue that might harm shoes, flooring and pet paws. Calcium magnesium acetate can cost 10 times more than rock salt, but won’t harm the environment and is less corrosive to concrete than salt.

1889, worked as an electrician for the Sterling Bronze Co. of New York City. In 1916 he was working at a house in upstate New York, switching out a Sterling Bronze Co. six-light Colonial-style chandelier for a French Provincial model. He bought the Colonial model and left it to me in 1960. What do you think the chandelier would sell for today? A: Sterling Bronze Co. was in business during the early decades of the 20th century. It made high-quality electric light fixtures, including chandeliers and sconces. We have seen pairs of Sterling Bronze Co. sconces auction recently for more than $2,000. Chandeliers might not sell for as much, though, because it’s hard to find new light bulbs that work in antique fixtures. If you have bulbs for it that work and look attractive, ask a nearby appraiser to look at your chandelier in person to estimate its value. Q: I would like to know if

my picture titled “Ulysses and the Sirens” is of any value. It’s 7 by 10 inches and is signed by Thomas Moran. A: Thomas Moran (18371926) was born in England but moved to Philadelphia with his family when he was a child. He worked as an illustrator in Philadelphia before moving to New York City, where he became a magazine illustrator and landscape painter. His original landscape oil painting of “Ulysses and the Sirens” was completed in 1900 and is 28 by 40 inches. It sold at a 1999 Christie’s auction for $178,500. Your small print of the painting would probably sell for less than $20.

However, like rock salt, it doesn’t perform as well in lower temperatures. Would you rather just take a detour from the whole snow-removal business? Consider splurging on a heated driveway. A system might require a new driveway and can cost $15,000 or more, but it can melt snow on contact. One common type features electric current heating a wire or mat. Another circulates heated liquid through tubing. If you’re interested, contact a reputable driveway installer.

The most she paid was $18, and that was way more than the others. The monkeys have come a long way from their poor upbringings. “During the Depression you saved your husband’s or dad’s socks, the redheeled socks they wore under their workboots. And when they’d wear out you’d make these. That’s why they have these faded looks.” Imagine kids these days getting a monkey made out of Dad’s old socks. It’d never fly.

Driveway size and the number of sidewalks or walkways generally determine cost. Angie’s List members report paying an average of $64 per service or $424 for an annual contract. Are you covered? Confirm that the company is appropriately licensed for where you live and that it’s sufficiently insured and bonded. Whether you remove snow yourself or hire someone, keep in mind that some removal methods can cause damage. Therefore: n Don’t use ice picks on driveways or sidewalks. n Use tall stakes to delineate driveway boundaries ahead of heavy snow.

DAILY CROSSWORD

Grad student sick of talking about school Adapted from a recent online discussion. Hi, Carolyn: I’m a grad student who’s perilously close to finishing my degree. I’m at an insanely stressful period in my life and at this point I am so [erfing] sick of talking about anything related to grad school. Problem is, this is how my family relates to me and it’s pretty much all my parents ask about when we talk on the phone. I know I’m going to get all kinds of questions about it when I go to visit family next week (“How’s your dissertation going? Where are you applying for jobs? Have you gotten interviews yet? When are you going to a conference next? How’s teaching? What other research projects are you working on?”), and I’m already dreading having to answer these questions over and over. How do I make it clear that this subject is off-limits, politely shut down the conversation if it goes in that direction, and retrain family members to talk to me about non-school things? — Holiday Stressed, Just Like Everyone Else “You’re kind to ask, and here’s my answer: I’m at a point

CAROLYN HAX TELL ME ABOUT IT where I need to talk about anything BUT grad school. Tell me about you. Tell me a bad joke. Tell me dirt on people I don’t even know.” By the end of your visit, you’ll have it down to three words and a hand signal. If you’d like to pre-deliver this message via friendly in-family messenger, that might save you some explaining. Good luck. Dear Carolyn: This is partly a holiday question, and partly a year-round question. My husband has a number of elderly relatives. None has email (or a computer, for that matter). He and everyone in his family expect me to correspond with all of them. Xmas cards, birthday greetings, etc. Handwritten, and with pictures of the children.

A compromise isn’t reasonable because these are your husband’s relatives AND his expectations. The only reasonable course is for him to handle his own darn mailings. That is, unless you and he have a division of labor in which he covers things for you that otherwise would be entirely your responsibility. Decide what you’re willing to do, exactly, within the context of your household chore distribution; tell your husband that; and say the rest is up to him or else it won’t happen. That’s a reasonable line to hold. (c) 2014, Washington Post Writers Group

My husband doesn’t even have addresses, so I have to keep track of those. I really wouldn’t mind if I could email people, but I can’t. I email my sisters (my husband has never written them, nor has he talked on the phone to them in the past 20 years). I understand Uncle Don who is in a nursing home enjoys the letters and pictures, so why can’t my husband help? His aunt told me I am selfish for not keeping up the correspondence. Is there any reasonable compromise? — All in the Family

Theater provides stage for love story Dear Abby: You sometimes print letters from people who are looking to meet decent, honorable and interesting other people. While you have recommended volunteering, joining health clubs, going to church — and staying out of bars — something I have yet to see mentioned is a community-based arts organization. Someone who is musically inclined might look for a local band, orchestra or community chorus. But I’d like to put in a word for community theater. A person doesn’t have to be a performer; these groups need people to build sets, make costumes, locate props, run the backstage operations during a performance, etc. In the front of the house, they need people for promotion, selling tickets, ushering and soliciting donations from sponsors. I met my husband of 30-plus years through a community theater group, and know of several other long-term marriages that came about the same way. I’m a seamstress, so I have made my share of costumes. But I have also learned how to frame a wall and build a staircase while working on set construction. Even if you don’t find that special someone, you will make dozens of new friends and have the satisfaction of accomplishing something at the same time. — Always Busy In Des Moines Dear Always Busy: I love your suggestion. Not everyone is meant to be in front of the footlights, but that doesn’t mean one can’t be an important member of the team. And community theater is definitely a team effort. RIP HAYWIRE

DEAR ABBY Dear Abby: I find my wife’s daughter and son-inlaw, who live nearby, to be very unlikable. Her daughter is gossipy, arrogant, smug and superficial. The husband is ill-mannered, devoid of social skills, lazy, impossible to carry on a normal conversation with and, worst of all, a liar. Naturally, I am expected to see them often, and the more I am around them, the less I like them. This has become apparent to my wife. We have had more than a few “spirited discussions” about it, which I view as a real threat to the long-term well-being of our marriage. I have tried mightily for her sake to overlook their major personality and character flaws, with no success. I don’t want another divorce. Please help. — Desperate In The Mid-Atlantic Dear Desperate: If you love your wife and don’t want this marriage ruined, accept that you are going to have to accommodate to some degree her insufferable daughter and son-in-law.

I think Grapefruit was asking a lot of East, whose winning play was to duck the king of clubs! South can’t set up the clubs and eventually loses a club, a heart and two diamonds against best defense. South could always make four spades by playing low from dummy on the first club.

“Dolphin Tale 2” ★½: In 2011, director Charles Martin Smith blended a huge number of deeply emotional moments to make “Dolphin Tale” the king of must-see movies for the year. Compared to the depth of his work on the first film, “Dolphin Tale 2,” the follow-up story to the tale of Winter, a dolphin with a prosthetic tail, never gets out of the emotional kiddie pool.
