Ronicka Messner, 24, remembers her fiance, Grant Strinden, as being “the softest-hearted person.” Strinden, 23, was killed when a storm-ravaged tree fell and crushed his car while he was driving near Monroe on Nov. 17.
By Amy Nile Herald Writer
MONROE — He kept his promise to love her all his life. Grant Strinden assured his fiancee, Ronicka Messner, that she could trust him when she needed someone to count on. The Monroe couple was planning a 2016 wedding and scribbling their bucket list on little scraps of paper as ideas came up. “He promised me numerous times he was going to spend the rest of his life with me — whether I liked it or not,” said
Messner, 24, with a wry smile. “I wish he’d have been right longer.” Strinden, 23, was killed when a tree crushed his car on Ben Howard Road as wind and rain battered the region Nov. 17. He was driving to pick up their daughter, Kandyce, 7, from Chain Lake Elementary School. She’s in first grade. Tuscano’s Italian Kitchen, where Messner works as a waitress, is holding a fundraiser for her from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday. She’s not one to ask for help, but her coworkers insisted on donating
their wages and tips from the evening to help pay some of her bills. Restaurant owner Scott Perry said he will donate 25 percent of Wednesday’s dinner sales to the effort. The restaurant also is accepting donations for the family, which can be dropped off at Tuscano’s, 14919 North Kelsey St. There’s also a GoFundMe page. “I’m blown away” by all the support, Messner said. “It gives me hope.” She met Strinden in 2010 when they worked together at the Goodwill store in Monroe.
“He was very respectful and polite, but a little too tall for my taste,” said the 5-foot-3 Messner of her 6-foot-4 fiance. At 19 she had been single for two years and wasn’t looking to change that. Kandyce was 18 months old when she met Strinden. When she arrived in Washington from Wyoming, she’d wanted to provide a better life for her daughter. Messner was impressed by Strinden’s pride in his Christian faith. He even carried a pocket Bible. See LOVE, Page A6

SEATTLE — Even 30-year sea captains can get a little sweaty. They undergo refresher training in realistic ship-steering simulators at Seattle’s Pacific Maritime Institute. In a simulator, they can face towering waves, strong winds and imminent collisions with surfacing submarines. The view from the

More than 62 percent of the state’s ferry captains are at least 55 years old, as are more than half of the deck crew.

Facebook CEO, a new dad, to give away fortune Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Talk about birth announcements: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife said they’ll devote nearly all their wealth — roughly $45 billion — to good works in celebration of
their daughter, Max. Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, gave birth to a 7-pound, 8-ounce daughter last week. But the couple didn’t put out the news until Tuesday, when Zuckerberg posted it on — of course — Facebook. In the same post, Zuckerberg said he and Chan
will commit 99 percent of their Facebook stock to such causes as fighting disease, improving education and “building strong communities.” They are forming a new organization, called the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, that will pursue those goals.

The 2014 Granite Falls High School graduate is accused of writing “Let’s lynch her” on the social media platform Yik Yak. University officials canceled classes Nov. 24, after reading posts they said targeted minorities in a series of threats. The threats were made around the time some students were raising the issue of replacing the school’s Viking mascot. That day, university President Bruce Shepard wrote a message explaining the decision to close the campus. “I need to be VERY clear here: we are not talking merely insulting, rude, offensive commentary that trolls and various other lowlifes seem free to spew, willy nilly, although there has been plenty of that, too” Shepard wrote. “No, this was hate speech.” On Nov. 27, Shepard specifically referred to one post on Yik Yak that reportedly read, “Lets lynch her,” referring to Belina Seare, president of WWU’s

WWU Police Chief Darin Rasmussen, a former Marysville Police lieutenant, praised Yik Yak for its cooperation in the investigation. He also thanked the Bellingham Police Department and the FBI for their assistance. The university police department obtained a search warrant and worked with Yik Yak to track down the
threat’s author. Attempts to contact Campbell’s family were not successful Tuesday.

Case detailed against state auditor By Gene Johnson Associated Press
TACOMA — Washington state Auditor Troy Kelley has been on leave and has faced calls for his resignation since the government charged him with keeping millions of dollars that should have been refunded to customers of his old real-estate services business. But his attorney sought to undermine those allegations in
court Tuesday with a simple notion: that the money wasn’t stolen. In his first opportunity to cross-examine an investiga- Troy Kelley tor on the case, defense attorney Angelo Calfo hammered FBI Special Agent Michael Brown on whether
anyone — either homeowners or title and escrow companies — was entitled to refunds of the fees paid to Kelley’s former company, Post Closing Department. “Are you aware of any document in which a homebuyer was promised a refund of this fee?” the lawyer asked. “I am not,” Brown replied. The testimony came during a hearing before U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton, in which Kelley
is seeking to have the government return $908,000 it seized from him in September. Prosecutors say the money had been stolen from clients of his former real-estate services business and that he has no right to it. Prosecutors laid out their case against Kelley in the greatest detail yet, as Brown testified that financial records and statements from his former workers belied his explanations of why he was
entitled to keep about $3 million from old real estate transactions. Kelley, a 51-year-old Democrat from Tacoma, is a former state representative who was elected in 2012 to be Washington’s auditor — the state official tasked with rooting out waste and fraud in government operations. At Post Closing Department, Kelley worked with escrow and See KELLEY, Page A8

EVERETT — It’s the latest in a long line of projects expected to bring people and, hopefully, a new sense of energy to downtown Everett. The seven-story Aero Apartments has opened at the corner of Hewitt and Rucker avenues. Already more than half of the 102 apartments have been leased. “Bringing people back to the core of the city is the critical ingredient for making local retail viable and supporting the success of neighborhood restaurants and gathering places,” said Craig Skotdal, president of Skotdal Real Estate. The Aero Apartments is an important piece of the puzzle to rejuvenating downtown, Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson said. He praised the Skotdal family for the project. “With a Skotdal property, you know you’re getting a world-class development,” Stephanson said. In the past five years, several major projects have opened in downtown, including the Artspace Lofts; the Library Place, another Skotdal project; and Potala Place and Farmer’s Market, an apartment building that is leasing despite a fraud investigation into developer Lobsang Dargey. Add in two hotels — the Hampton Inn, which opened in 2014, and the Marriott Hotel, scheduled to open next year — and the city is hoping that there will be enough feet on the street for downtown to thrive.

Homeless man gets 30 years for delivery driver assault By Scott North Herald Writer
EVERETT — A homeless man was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison Tuesday for nearly killing a pizza delivery driver during a January car prowl. Christopher Cowan, 35, had nothing to say before Snohomish County Superior Court Judge George Bowden decided on his sentence. A jury late last month convicted Cowan of attempted
second-degree murder, firstdegree assault and robbery. The victim, 40, was cut with a knife so deeply that his intestines were exposed. Cowan attacked the delivery driver after being surprised while going through the man’s car, which was parked outside a Domino’s Pizza restaurant in Edmonds. Bowden gave Cowan the maximum under state sentencing guidelines. “From what I know of the facts, that seems to be the minimum

The defendant nearly killed a man in an attempt to avoid capture for what initially was a misdemeanor car prowl, deputy prosecutor Craig Matheson said. “The violence was gratuitous.

Starbucks pulls sandwich from U.S. West stores on E. coli scare By Leslie Patton Bloomberg News
Starbucks pulled its holiday turkey panini sandwiches from 1,347 U.S. locations last week after they were hit by the same E. coli strain as Costco Wholesale Corp. The sandwiches, part of the chain’s holiday lineup, were recalled in certain locations in California, Oregon and Nevada, said
Erin Jane Schaeffer, a spokeswoman for Seattlebased Starbucks. No other markets were affected, and the company has received no reports of illness, she said. Cranberry cornbread stuffing in the panini contained celery, the ingredient that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified last week as the likely cause of an E. coli
outbreak that has sickened at least 19 people in seven states. After health officials found the bacteria in the celeryand-onion blend used in Costco’s chicken salad, Taylor Farms Pacific Inc. recalled multiple celery products, including the Starbucks sandwiches. Starbucks is the latest restaurant chain to be hit with a food-safety scare. Chipotle Mexican Grill

No injuries have been reported but all crew members must be cleared by medical personnel before
Inc. also is dealing with an E. coli outbreak that sickened at least 45 customers. Health officials are still trying to identify the tainted ingredient. While it’s common for people to have E. coli in their intestines, some forms of the bacteria can be dangerous. They may cause diarrhea, as well as kidney failure, especially in young children and the elderly.
they can return to training. Officials say lasers can cause permanent eye damage and at night can cause temporary loss of night vision, among other injuries. Lt. Cmdr. Greg Lynch says a laser can be just as dangerous as shooting a gun in bringing down an aircraft. The Coast Guard and local law enforcement are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call the Coast Guard at 360-417-5823.

Aero Apartments in March 2014. The lot used to hold a car rental business. The apartments at 2901 Rucker Ave. range in size from 512 to 974 square feet, from studios to twobedroom units, with a small number of live/work loft-style spaces at street level. The name is a nod to Everett’s ties to the aerospace industry. The design of the building is intended to reflect the theme with metallic exterior finishes, nighttime “runway” lighting at the main entrance and
aviation-inspired signage and artwork, including a main sign that looks like an airplane tail. The theme continues into the lobby, which features an aviation-inspired photo mural along with a large fireplace and lounge seating. Amenities include an outdoor patio with a fireplace, barbecue grill and seating area. A glassenclosed lounge includes a kitchen, pool and shuffleboard tables and large-screen televisions. For green features, the Aero Apartments include
solar panels installed in the rooftop, energy-efficient lighting and appliances and energy-saving windows and doors. Several downtown businesses have offered discounts for new residents of the apartments. Skotdal said it’s a huge relief to finish the project after months of hard work. “As for where we go from here, that remains to be determined,” he said. “We’re always looking for ways to invest in Everett and keep the positive momentum going.”

Store. CafeWorks customers can enter from the store or through a door on the building’s south side. As the business gets its start, hired baristas have joined Huenefeld behind the counter. In January, Franklin said, two young people from Cocoon House will become paid CafeWorks interns. Candidates will go through a job interview process. “It’s going to build their self-esteem,” said Julio Cortes, Cocoon House public relations manager. Even teens who don’t get internships may gain confidence to apply for other jobs, he said. Those chosen will learn job skills as basic as showing up on time, along with customer service and the fine points of making espresso drinks. “It’s the new first-time job,” Franklin said. Huenefeld, who has a human services degree and a Starbucks background, said two new interns will join the staff every six weeks, with up to six working at a time. Bre Beckman, an 18-year-old barista working at the cafe Tuesday, will help train Cocoon House interns.
There may be opportunities both for kids served by Cocoon House and those helped by Housing Hope’s teen parent program. It’s fitting that the first customer through the CafeWorks door, at 7 a.m. Tuesday, was Robert Malone. He is board of trustees president for the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound. “I had a quadruple nonfat latte,” Malone said. CafeWorks was made possible by a major grant, $500,000 in all, from the Employees Community Fund. It came in two payments, $420,970 in 2014 to remodel the HopeWorks Station building, and $79,030 earlier this year for the cafe. “Last year we changed our funding guidelines to try to have more impact with our grants. Larger grants have more impact,” Malone said. He said nonprofits were chosen for their focus on attacking poverty, “not just on treating symptoms.” Malone said the Employees Community Fund also awarded a $500,000 grant to FareStart, the Seattle nonprofit that provides culinary job training to homeless people. Ed Petersen, chief strategic officer for Housing
CafeWorks is open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. weekdays in the HopeWorks Station building, 3331 Broadway, Everett. Hope and HopeWorks, said the Catalyst Kitchens program that grew out of FareStart is helping start CafeWorks. The new cafe also is being helped by Starbucks. CafeWorks sells Starbucks coffee, the company did some training for CafeWorks, and a coffee brewer is on loan from Starbucks. An espresso machine and two coffee grinders were donated by La Marzocco USA in Seattle. “This is a starting place,” Petersen said. His vision includes a new five-story building to go up just north of HopeWorks Station. Building plans include three floors of housing for employees of businesses — including a restaurant — on the lower levels. “Piece by piece, we’re building it,” Petersen said. For the cafe workers, too, Petersen sees making and serving coffee as just a start. “It’s a step, not an end point,” he said. “It’s a ladder.” Julie Muhlstein: 425339-3460; jmuhlstein@ heraldnet.com.

Love: His reaction to their first kiss was unexpected From Page A1
“I could tell he was a God-loving man without him saying that,” she said. “But he could spit off a Bible verse quicker than anyone I know.” The first time they kissed, Strinden was apparently so smitten he passed out. “No joke, he toppled over like a tree,” Messner recalled, noting he woke up a minute later. Strinden grew up in Monroe but attended Cedar Park Christian Schools in Bothell until his senior year of high school. He graduated from Monroe’s Sky Valley Education Center in 2010. He hoped to someday do manufacturing work for Boeing. He had experience working with his hands, making products for Werner Paddles in Sultan and Canyon Creek Cabinet Co. in Monroe. “He liked the challenge of making it perfect,” Messner said. Strinden was finishing his associate’s degree

Grant Strinden, 23, and daughter Kandyce, 7, at Country Village in Bothell
at Cascadia College. After school, he took care of Kandyce. They did
homework, read books and played Uno, Go Fish and other card games while
Messner waited tables. When they first met, Strinden was shy and didn’t really know how to interact with a toddler, Messner said. That quickly changed and the two bonded. “Just like ours, their love grew every day,” Messner said. At first, she didn’t want Kandyce to call Strinden Dad. Kandyce did it anyway. He was the only father she’d ever known. On Kandyce’s birthdays, Strinden would sit all day at Mukilteo Beach to make sure they had the best fire pit for her party. The family often visited a spot on the Skykomish River near their home on Ben Howard Road. If they were fishing, Messner had to kill the fish and cook it. “He was the softesthearted person,” she said.

Ferries: Must be good with the public
Work for the ferries Washington State Ferries is hiring entry-level seamen. A fitness test is required. Men and women are encouraged to apply. Seamen start at about $47,300 a year, while captains, who have at least five years of sea time, make about $100,000. More info: www.wsdot. wa.gov/ferries

Many of the captains are likely to retire within the next decade. That means others will move up in rank, opening up about 60 positions, particularly at entry level. You have to be able to work with the public. That’s different from a lot of maritime jobs, he said, where
electric and bass guitars or kept the beat on drums. When he’d had his fill of Messner and her girlfriends, he’d sit back and pick out a tune while they talked. “It was his quiet time to recoup and reset,” Messner said. Strinden is preceded in death by his grandfather, Ed Utterback. He is survived by his mother, Loretta Williams; father, Michael Strinden; stepmother, Joy Vander Houten; stepfather, John Williams; and grandparents, Harlon and Donna Strinden and Sue Utterback. He also leaves behind a pitbull-pointer mix, Zedd and a cat, Cyprus. Although his stepfather played for the Seahawks as a young man, Strinden was never much of a football fan until they started dating, said Messner, a lifelong 12. Soon enough, Strinden knew more about football than she did. He encouraged Messner to get her high school diploma. She hopes to someday finish it and go on to earn her associate’s

Nights are tough, too. She and Kandyce hold each other, talk about their feelings and cry. They’re staying with family because going home is too hard. “It’s no longer our place,” Messner said. “He was my everything. He was my rock and the person I could cry to. He’s the one person I could trust without a doubt.” Messner is struggling to maintain the strict routine and consistency he provided for Kandyce. They’re facing Christmas and a future without him. “I don’t feel like there’s anyone in this world who is as golden as he was,” Messner said. “It might take a while but I’m going to start over from ground zero.” Amy Nile: 425-339-3192; firstname.lastname@example.org.

To become a captain, Schilling had to memorize every route in the state ferry system, including the varying water depths. “You internalize the waters through which you’re navigating,” he said. It’s common for those who work in the pilothouse to become close, like a second family, Faust said. They’re basically on a floating island, after all, and even if they’re over “the same piece of water” every day, together they overcome challenges and dangers involving tides, weather and traffic.

Rules changed for legal pot businesses in Alaska By Becky Bohrer Associated Press
JUNEAU, Alaska — The board tasked with writing rules for Alaska’s recreational marijuana industry backtracked Tuesday and adopted stricter residency requirements for applicants for pot business licenses. The Marijuana Control Board scuttled a rule adopted last month that would use the residency requirements needed to vote in Alaska in favor of using the more stringent standards needed to qualify
for the yearly check from Alaska’s oil wealth fund. During a meeting Tuesday in Anchorage the board approved using the residency requirements for the Permanent Fund Dividend, which include being a resident of the state for a full calendar year. Colorado, Washington and Oregon — the other states that have legalized recreational marijuana — have residency requirements ranging from six months in Washington to two years in the other states. In Washington and Colorado, those requirements
apply to business applicants and investors. In Oregon, majority ownership must rest with Oregon residents. Outside investment is allowed there, but non-resident owners can’t be directly involved in a business’ operation or management, according to the temporary rules in place. Alaska voters last year approved recreational pot for those 21 and older. It remains illegal to buy or sell pot because businesses haven’t been licensed yet. The board is to begin accepting applications in February, with the first
industry licenses expected to be awarded in May. On Tuesday, board member Brandon Emmett proposed an amendment that would allow for limited out-of-state investment. But Harriet Dinegar Milks, an assistant attorney general serving as counsel to the board, said that was outside the published agenda of the meeting and couldn’t be taken up. The board previously rejected a similar proposal. Under the rules, as currently written, only those holding a pot license can have a financial interest in
the business. And to get a license for a pot business, you would have to meet residency requirements. Arguments that have been made for outside investment for pot businesses include having greater access to financing since the industry is largely excluded from typical commercial lending because of federal drug laws, and access to people with industry experience, said Taylor West, deputy director of the National Cannabis Industry Association. On the other side, not allowing outside
investment can be an attempt to keep the industry smaller and easier to manage, she said. Another argument that has been raised is giving homegrown businesses a chance to establish themselves and flourish, she said. It’s a debate that’s been going on for some time and probably will continue, given that the industry is growing in a sort of piecemeal, state-by-state process, she said. The Alaska regulations still must go through a legal review by the Alaska Department of Law.
Scientists push for pot pesticide testing before new rules Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. — Though marijuana products sold in Oregon will have to undergo testing for pesticides beginning this spring, some scientists are pushing for testing in the interim. Until the new rules take effect, the state plans to allow the marijuana industry to continue to operate as it does now. In June,
tougher regulations will require marijuana to be tested for nearly 60 pesticides, The Oregonian reported. The Oregon Health Authority has signaled it is willing to consider tightening current regulations. Scientist Mowgli Holmes, who owns Phylos Bioscience, spoke to the authority on Monday asking that they increase the number of chemicals marijuana is
currently tested for from four to 10 or 12. “The problem is these pesticide testing rules don’t make any sense and can’t be followed,” Holmes said. “Stuff is going onto the shelves and it looks like they have been testing for pesticides and it hasn’t been tested for pesticides.” Health authority encouraged Holmes to submit his proposed changes to the state for review.
Officials are in the process of drafting rules for medical marijuana dispensaries, grow sites, labeling and testing, among other things. The June rule requiring marijuana products to be tested is a radical shift in how the state is dealing with the pot industry. Labs that perform tests will have to be accredited by the state, a rigorous process designed to ensure they are
Man pleads guilty to trying to join extremists Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A 22-year-old California man pleaded guilty Tuesday to trying to join Islamic extremists in Syria and could face up to 15 years in prison, federal prosecutors said. Nicholas Teausant entered the plea to one count of attempting to provide material support or resources to a foreign
terrorist organization, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento said. Teausant was arrested in March 2014 in Washington state. He planned to travel to Canada and then on to Syria to join the Islamic State group and discussed his plans with a friend who was actually an FBI informant, authorities said. “We hope that this case will be a reminder to us all to stay vigilant and involved
in the lives of our youth, and in particular with respect to the dangerous influences they may be subject to on the Internet where these organizations are very active,” Benjamin Wagner, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California, said.
Teausant’s lawyers said he had a mental illness that made him vulnerable to the informant and had no real plans of joining the group. He had previously been found incompetent to stand trial but was ruled competent in August.
using appropriate equipment and methods. Holmes said because the new rules don’t take effect for so long, pesticide-laced products are entering the medical marijuana market. “We would really like to see some intermediate step that gets pesticides out of the system,” he said. Rodger Voelker, a chemist at OG Analytical, a Eugene-based marijuana testing lab, said

he understands the push for tougher standards now, but that accreditation is a time-consuming process. He said without accredited labs, tougher rules won’t mean anything. Still, he says it is concerning that the system is just going to idle until June. “It really bothers me that this whole thing is just going to continue as it is,” he said. “We have seen no changes.”

Police probe death of Juneau mayor
Mississippi-bound dog ends up in Honolulu Associated Press HONOLULU — A dog bound for its new owner in Mississippi ended up in Honolulu instead. American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely Bethany said the Pembroke Welsh corgi was headed from Seattle to her new owner in Mississippi on Saturday when she made a wrong connection in Dallas. American Airlines says the company is looking at its procedures to figure out how the corgi ended up on the wrong plane. When breeder Paul Chen was notified that Bethany was misplaced, he reported the dog missing and offered a $1,000 reward. Bethany left the islands on Monday for Dallas.

mortgage title companies to track real estate transactions. Investigators say Kelley kept fees the company was supposed to refund to customers — an amount that totaled at least $3 million from 2006 to 2008 — and paid himself $245,000 a year from the ill-gotten proceeds. Just before he was indicted last spring on charges including possession of stolen money
By Dan Joling ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The newly elected mayor of Alaska’s capital city had suffered injuries when was found dead, but police are awaiting autopsy results to announce a possible cause of death, officials said Tuesday. The adult son of Stephen “Greg” Fisk, 70, found the mayor’s body Monday afternoon and alerted police. Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara said Tuesday the cause of death remains unknown. “It’s not clear what the cause of those injuries are,” she said. She could not comment on the nature of the injuries, she said. Fisk lived alone. There was no sign of forced entry into Fisk’s home above
Juneau’s downtown. “We haven’t ruled anything out yet,” she said. Police are hoping the state medical examiner in Anchorage will complete the autopsy in a couple of days, she said. Investigators on Monday didn’t speculate on a possible cause of Fisk’s death but did not immediately rule out foul play. An attack was “one of the possibilities out there, but there’s others that could have happened,” Police Chief Bryce Johnson told the Juneau Empire newspaper. “There could’ve been a fall. There’s lots of things that would cause it.” Fisk’s son, Ian, in an email statement said his family is grieving privately. “We sincerely appreciate the support of the community and we recognize that, as would be the case with any public figure, his death
brings a lot of attention,” Fisk said. “At this time we have no reason to speculate as to the cause of his death and are awaiting the results of his autopsy. Meanwhile I will not be responding to any further media requests of any kind, and ask for your understanding.” Greg Fisk, a fisheries consultant, handily defeated incumbent Merrill Sanford in the Oct. 6 election to become mayor. Bob King, a veteran of Alaska politics who worked as press secretary to former Gov. Tony Knowles and as a fisheries aide to former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, was Fisk’s next-door neighbor, friend and campaign manager. “He wanted to focus on strengthening Juneau’s role as Alaska’s capital city,” King told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Fisk wanted to encourage
development of Juneau’s waterfront and pledged to push the federal government to restore jobs that had been moved to Seattle from Juneau, King said. Fisk also intended to work for more affordable housing in the city whose downtown is bounded on one side by the ocean and on the other by mountainsides. “He had a lot of different thoughts and he really jumped into it,” King said. Fisk had served on boards and commissions but had never run for office. When he asked King to be his campaign chairman, King didn’t give Fisk much of a chance but helped out in minor ways, he said. Fisk ran an active campaign, going door-todoor to speak to voters and hear their concerns. Fisk ended up taking nearly two-thirds of the vote.
said the money was stolen and directly traceable to money laundering. The FBI agent then took the stand, explaining in detail Post Closing Department’s business model and relationship with the two title and escrow companies with which it primarily worked. Referencing emails from Kelley and his employees, Brown described how Post Closing had repeatedly insisted to the other companies, Fidelity National Title and Old Republic Title, that it only kept $15 to $20 of each $100 to $150 fee collected from borrowers to track the transactions, called reconveyances. The
rest of the money was to be held in case additional fees were required by county recorders’ offices or others, with the balance being refunded to the borrowers. In reality, of more than 27,000 transactions, it provided refunds in just 89 instances, Brown testified. Some of Kelley’s former workers, including Jason Jerue, whom he later hired at the auditor’s office, told investigators that Kelley had drafted the emails they sent to the title companies, Brown said. During cross-examination, Calfo said Post Closing never made promises to home buyers that some of the fees would be
refunded, and noted that their closing documents made no such promises. One of the title companies that Kelley worked with took the position during related litigation that borrowers would not be entitled to recover the fees from Post Closing, Calfo suggested. He also got Brown to acknowledge that some of the biggest title companies collected such fees without refunding unspent portions to homeowners. Calfo questioned Brown about who owned the money paid in reconveyance fees— the title companies, or the homeowner? Brown evaded
giving a straight answer, saying that would call for a legal conclusion that wasn’t his to make. But at any rate, it didn’t belong to Kelley, he said. The most serious charges Kelley faces are money laundering, but Calfo indicated there was no crime in Kelley’s transferring money among his various bank accounts. Old Republic Title sued Kelley in 2009. He eventually paid more than $1 million to settle the case. Four of the charges against Kelley allege he lied in a deposition in that case to avoid blame. Kelley’s attorney described the matter as a contract dispute.
She was at a Texas kennel Tuesday and was expected to fly to her new owner Wednesday. Such mishaps involving dogs and cats are rare. According to U.S. Department of Transportation figures, 28 pets died, 21 were injured and two were lost by airlines in the first nine months of 2015. A dog died on an American Airlines flight in April. The airline said it couldn’t determine the cause. A cat escaped from the cargo hold of an American plane in February; the cage door had not been secured with zip ties as required. Beginning in January, airlines will have to disclose more information about shipments of pets, including the number of animals they carried in the previous year.
and filing false income tax returns, Kelley wrote a $447,000 check to the U.S. Treasury Department, noting in the subject line that it would cover future tax debts, and transferred more than $908,000 to a law firm that represented him at the time. Federal prosecutors seized the money being held by the firm in September. Calfo sought its return, arguing that the government did not need the money as evidence and had not demonstrated that it had probable cause to seize it. In his opening statement Tuesday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Cohen

Everett gets festive with Wintertide
Assault From Page A3
Jennifer Bartlett, told jurors that police got the wrong man and ignored evidence that didn’t support their hypothesis. Cowan had 14 prior felony convictions, mostly for property crimes in North Carolina. On Tuesday, the legal battle was over how to sentence him for the new offenses, including which of the attack convictions — attempted murder or assault — should be considered the most-serious offense.
The first-degree assault conviction carried more prison time than the attempted murder, and case law supported treating it as the most serious charge, Matheson said. Bowden agreed with Matheson’s analysis. That resulted in Cowan facing close to two years longer behind bars. His sentence also included two years for using a knife as a deadly weapon. Judge Richard Okrent had presided over the trial, but he was unable to sentence Cowan because of illness. With Cowan’s consent, Bowden stepped in to take the case.
Shortage of teachers at ‘crisis’ stage SEATTLE — Principals across Washington are saying the current teacher shortage has reached a “crisis” and is placing severe strain on schools. KOMO-TV reported that in a survey of 730 principals representing 35 percent of the state’s public schools, 80 percent of principals said they have had to hire underqualified teachers and 74 percent said they had to substitute for a classroom teacher within five days of when the survey was taken in October. Assistant Superintendent of Early Learning for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Bob Butts said there is a shortage of teachers and substitutes. The survey was sponsored by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and Association of Washington School Principals.

been suspended because of rain and snow. Officials say Adam Ochshorn started hiking to Colchuck Lake Friday, planned to camp and then climb a steep, narrow gully to reach Colchuck Peak on Saturday. He was expected out late Saturday or early Sunday, but didn’t return. He is described as an experienced and technical climber who had hiked in the Colchuck area this summer. Searchers had looked for Ochshorn by ground and helicopter since Sunday. Ochshorn’s vehicle was found near the campground and his campsite was found unoccupied.
Tacoma: New life for Old City Hall Tacoma officials say they are moving forward with plans to sell or lease the Old City Hall building for the development of a boutique hotel. KCPQ-TV reported that officials expect to negotiate agreements with McMenamins of Portland in coming weeks to develop the 60-room hotel, a restaurant, bars and other businesses. McMenamins — a chain of breweries, music venues and historical hotels — plans to add the boutique hotel in the Old City Hall, along with four bars, a rooftop restaurant, event spaces and a gift shop.

More special ops to fight ISIS Associated Press WASHINGTON — The U.S. military will deploy a new special operations force to Iraq to step up the fight against Islamic State militants unleashing violence in Iraq and Syria and determined to hold territory they have seized across the Middle East, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress on Tuesday. Carter, who testified alongside Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, faced skeptical lawmakers who argued that the U.S. needs to be more forceful in countering the threat from ISIS, credited with attacks in Paris and Beirut and the downing of a Russian airliner. Carter told the House Armed Services Committee that over time, the special operations force will be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather
intelligence and capture ISIS leaders. Carter said that will improve intelligence and generate more targets for attacks. There currently are about 3,300 U.S. troops in Iraq, and President Barack Obama had previously announced he was sending fewer than 50 special operations forces to Syria. There has been a growing call from some Republicans for more U.S. boots on the ground and a divide among war-weary Americans about the prospect of greater military involvement. Carter said the number in the new expeditionary force will be “larger” than 50. He said it will be a “standing” force, meaning it will be stationed in Iraq. He said it would focus on helping Iraq defend its borders and build the Iraqi security forces, but also would be in position to conduct unilateral operations into Syria.
“This is an important capability because it takes advantage of what we’re good at,” Carter said. “We’re good at intelligence, we’re good at mobility, we’re good at surprise. We have the long reach that no one else has. And it puts everybody on notice in Syria. You don’t know at night who’s going to be coming in the window. And that’s the sensation that we want all of ISIL’s leadership and followers to have.” According to a U.S. official, the force could total up to a couple of hundred troops, including the assault teams, aviation units and other support units. Obama has set the maximum number of troops at 3,550, but it was not clear whether the president will increase that number to accommodate the force, or whether the teams would have to be built within
the current limit. Carter said the force might be American-only, but more likely would be a mixed force with perhaps Kurdish troops or others who are fighting the militants. He said the new force would conduct operations similar to two conducted earlier this year. In October, U.S. special operations troops and Iraqi forces raided a compound in northern Iraq freeing about 70 Iraqi prisoners who were facing execution. One U.S. service member was killed in the raid, the first American combat death in Iraq since the U.S. began its campaign against IS in August 2014. In May, a Delta Force raid in Syria killed ISIS financier Abu Sayyaf, yielded intelligence about the group’s structure and finances, and his wife, held in Iraq, has been cooperating with interrogators.
Congress has road pact The bill would put an end to the cycle of temporary extensions and threatened shutdowns of transportation programs.
BAIJI, Iraq — On the front lines of the battle against the Islamic State, suspicion of the United States runs deep. Iraqi fighters say they have all seen the videos purportedly showing U.S. helicopters airdropping weapons to the militants, and many claim they have friends and relatives who have witnessed similar instances of collusion. Ordinary people also have seen the videos, heard the stories and reached the same conclusion — one that might seem absurd to Americans but is widely believed among Iraqis — that the United States is supporting the Islamic State for a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do with asserting
DUBUQUE, Iowa — Jeb Bush and his allies are spending circles around his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. Yet for all the money they’ve invested — $26 million on television ads alone — they’ve yet to see a substantial return. Having fallen from summer front-runner to autumn afterthought, the former Florida governor made deep spending cuts to his campaign operation in October. But he and his backers plowed ahead with a television blitz three times the size of anyone else’s, while putting a new strategic focus on New Hampshire. Bush remains mired in single digits in a race that continues to be dominated by political novices.
N. Hampshire: Warming New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has said he believes climate change is real. But “I don’t buy the fact that it’s a crisis,” he said Tuesday. “The climate’s always changing and we cannot say our activity doesn’t contribute to changing the climate. What I’m saying is it’s not a crisis,” Christie said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” which went to Concord to interview the governor, who is riding a new wave of endorsements this week in the state that hosts the first presidential primary. “I don’t see evidence. I don’t see evidence that it’s a crisis,” Christie said.
The head of the Chicago Police Department was fired Tuesday amid widespread criticism over how authorities responded to the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white police officer last year. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he formally asked Garry McCarthy, 56, the Chicago police superintendent, for his resignation Tuesd a week after video footage of the shooting was released and the officer was charged with murder.

decisions by Congress rather than being paid for from the federal Highway Trust Fund. The bill still falls short of the $400 billion over six years that Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said is needed to keep traffic from worsening, and it puts off the difficult decision of how to sustainably pay for transportation programs. The federal 18.4 cents-a-gallon gas tax, the main source of Trust Fund revenues, hasn’t been increased since 1993 and no longer covers annual spending on transportation. The House and Senate must still vote on the final bill. Passage is expected by Friday. The bill is paid for through a series of revenue-raising provisions, some of which have been criticized as gimmicks and budgetary sleight of hand. One of the bill’s losers is the banking industry. It cuts the dividend the Federal Reserve pays to large banks from 6 percent to 1.5 percent, and transfers about $49 billion over 10 years from a Federal Reserve capital account to the general
treasury, counting the money as new revenue. Some lawmakers and a past Federal Reserve chairman say it is just a paper transfer that actually raises no new money. Safety advocates lost several fights, but won some others: ■■Rental car agencies and car dealers with fleets of more than 35 cars would be prohibited from renting vehicles that have been recalled but not repaired, a long-sought goal of safety advocates. But the bill doesn’t require used-car dealers to repair recalled vehicles before selling them. ■■About $200 million is provided to help commuter railroads install positive train control technology to prevent collisions and derailments. Federal investigators said if the technology had been in operation a deadly Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia in May could have been prevented. ■■The liability cap on passenger rail accidents is raised from $200 million to $295 million. Damage awards from
the Amtrak derailment, which killed eight people and injured about 200, are expected to exceed the current cap. ■■The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration must remove safety scores for trucking companies from a public website, but the agency can continue to post scores for tour bus and interstate bus operators. ■■The maximum fine the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration can levy against an automaker who withholds information on safety defects would triple from $35 million to $105 million per violation. ■■Pilot programs in the Senate and House bills that would have allowed 18- and 19-yearolds to drive big trucks and buses across the country are significantly scaled back. The bill also retains $1.6 billion a year for transit programs in high-density Northeast states. An amendment to the House bill would have diverted the funds to a program available to bus systems in all states.
Many in Iraq see U.S. as ISIS ally The Washington Post
Bush spends big but has yet to rise
Illinois: Top cop is fired
Associated Press WASHINGTON — The House and Senate have reached agreement on a 5-year, $281 billion transportation bill that would increase spending to address the nation’s aging and congested highways and transit systems — a legislative feat that lawmakers and President Barack Obama have struggled throughout his administration to achieve. The bill, unveiled Tuesday, would also put an end to the cycle of temporary extensions and threatened shutdowns of transportation programs that have bedeviled Congress for the past seven years, making it difficult for states to plan longterm projects. The 1,300-page measure was “a mammoth task,” said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., one of the bill’s key negotiators. “I expect this bill to have a huge amount of support throughout the country from businesses and workers alike,” she said. “Although it is not perfect, I believe it is a major accomplishment for our people who expect us to fund a top-notch transportation system.” The bill boosts highway spending by 15 percent and transit spending by 18 percent over its duration. It also authorizes an additional $10 billion over five years for Amtrak, $12 billion for mass transit and $1 billion for vehicle safety programs. However, that money is subject to annual spending
ACROSS THE U.S.
American control over Iraq, the wider Middle East and, perhaps, its oil. “It is not in doubt,” said Mustafa Saadi, who says his friend saw U.S. helicopters delivering bottled water to Islamic State positions. He is a commander in one of the Shiite militias that last month helped push the militants out of the oil refinery near Baiji in northern Iraq alongside the Iraqi army. The Islamic State is “almost finished,” he said. “They are weak. If only America would stop supporting them, we could defeat them in days.” U.S. military officials say the charges are too far-fetched to merit a response. “It’s beyond ridiculous,” said Col. Steve Warren, the military’s Baghdad-based spokesman.
“There’s clearly no one in the West who buys it, but unfortunately, this is something that a segment of the Iraqi population believes.” The perception among Iraqis that the United States is somehow in cahoots with the militants it claims to be fighting appears, however, to be widespread across the country’s Sunni-Shiite sectarian divide, and it speaks to more than just the troubling legacy of mistrust that has clouded America’s relationship with Iraq since the 2003 invasion and the subsequent withdrawal eight years later. At a time when attacks by the Islamic State in Paris and elsewhere have intensified calls for tougher action on the ground, such is the level of suspicion
with which the United States is viewed in Iraq that it is unclear whether the Obama administration would be able to significantly escalate its involvement even if it wanted to. “What influence can we have if they think we are supporting the terrorists?” asked Kirk Sowell, an analyst based in neighboring Jordan who publishes the newsletter Inside Iraqi Politics. The allegations of American collusion with the Islamic State are aired regularly in parliament by Shiite politicians and promoted in postings on social media. They are persistent enough to suggest a deliberate campaign on the part of Iran’s allies in Iraq to erode American influence, U.S. officials say.
The Supreme Court handed the Obama administration a procedural but important victory Tuesday in its efforts to get the justices to rule next year on President Obama’s plan to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation. The court rejected a request from Texas and other states for a 30-day extension to file legal briefs in support of the lawsuit to block the immigration plan. If granted, the extension would have made it very unlikely that the court could hear the case during its current term.
AROUND THE WORLD Philippines: Marine guilty A court has found a U.S. Marine guilty of killing a transgender Filipino, in a case that has ignited anti-American sentiment in the former U.S. colony. A judge in Olongapo on Tuesday convicted Joseph Pemberton of homicide and sentenced him to six to 12 years in jail. Pemberton could have faced a life sentence had the judge granted prosecutors request for a murder conviction. The judge cited mitigating circumstances, saying Pemberton was drunk and got confused after discovering that the woman he hired for sex was male.
France: Paris safe, PM says Paris is safe again for tourists just over two weeks after one of France’s deadliest terrorist attacks, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday. “Here is a message to the world, to all the tourists who canceled their trips: ‘Come to Paris! The city is safe,’ ” Valls said. “Spend your money, live, go to cinemas, to theaters. That’s our message and it’s the answer to this terrorist attack.” Last month, gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris cafes and a concert hall in the second terrorist assault in the city this year.
S. Arabia: Tallest dream Dubai’s rulers are on notice: Saudi Arabia is getting serious about stealing their crowning glory. State-linked development companies in Jiddah have agreed to pony up the money for a skyscraper flirting with the unprecedented one-kilometer mark. That’s about 3,280 feet. Or, about 550 feet taller than the current record spire, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. It’s well more than twice as tall as the Empire State Building. The planned Jiddah Tower is a monumental undertaking. If it happens, the tallestskyscraper bragging rights would shift to its fifth country in a little more than a generation. From Herald news services

Tommie Copper to pay for claims The company’s infomercials, the FTC said, claim that “Tommie Copper truly is pain relief without a pill.” By Becky Yerak Chicago Tribune
Tommie Copper infomercials said the company’s compression clothing would relieve severe and chronic pain and inflammation. The Federal Trade Commission, however, said Tuesday that
Tommie Copper, whose products have been pitched by talk show host Montel Williams, needs scientific evidence to make such claims in the future. The FTC also said Tommie Copper must pay $1.35 million to settle charges of deceptive advertising practices. The company couldn’t be reached for immediate comment. According to the FTC complaint, since April 2011, the Mount Kisco, N.Y.-based company has advertised Tommie Copper copper-infused compression garments in infomercials,
brochures, social media and print outlets including Arthritis Today magazine. The clothing, including sleeves, shirts and socks, ranges in price from $29.50 to $69.50. The company’s infomercials, the FTC said, claim that “Tommie Copper truly is pain relief without a pill,” with celebrity and consumer testimonials saying the garments alleviated pain caused by afflictions like multiple sclerosis and arthritis, and could provide pain relief comparable to, or better than, drugs or surgery. The FTC says those claims were false or unsubstantiated.
The proposed federal court order imposes an $86.8 million judgment against Tommie Copper, but it will be “partially suspended upon payment of $1.35 million by the defendants,” the FTC said. “If the defendants are found to have misrepresented their financial condition, the total amount will immediately come due,” the commission said. The agreement, on file in a federal district court in the southern district of New York, said Tommie Copper was neither admitting nor denying the allegations.
November car sales boom Dealers started promoting “Black Friday” deals as early as Halloween.

A salesman (left) talks to a customer about a 2015 Grand Cherokee Limited in Doral, Florida, on Nov. 5.
the month was one of the best days this year. Deals can be dangerous for the auto industry because they cut into profits and lower vehicles’ resale value. Incentives have been creeping upward since 2011; in November, they rose an estimated $172 over last year to $3,066 per vehicle, according to the car buying site TrueCar.com. But Eric Lyman, vice president for industry insights at TrueCar, said the gradual increase isn’t a worrisome trend for the industry. For one thing, companies are making more profit per vehicle than they used to because they’re selling more SUVs and trucks. The average sale price of a vehicle last month was $32,966, up 1 percent from the previous month. Automakers are also trying to capture as many sales as they can in the boom years before sales
inevitably slow. Rising interest rates, higher gas prices and other factors are all expected to stall auto sales sometime in the next few years. “It’s kind of like, make hay while the sun shines,” Lyman said. And the sun is certainly shining. Last week, sales forecasting firm LMC Automotive said sales are now likely to reach a record 17.5 million in 2015. For November, automakers said: ■■GM’s sales rose 1.5 percent to 229,296. Chevrolet and Cadillac brand sales were up but fell at Buick and GMC. Sales of GM’s best-seller, the Silverado pickup, rose 5 percent. ■■Toyota’s sales rose 3 percent to 189,517. In a sign of the impact of lower gas prices, sales of the RAV4 SUV jumped nearly 30
percent while Prius hybrid sales were down 10 percent. ■■Ford’s sales were up less than 1 percent to 187,794. A 10-percent increase in F-Series pickup sales couldn’t overcome lower sales of key vehicles like the Escape SUV and Fusion sedan. ■■FCA’s sales rose 3 percent to 175,974, powered by a 20-percent increase in Jeep sales. Ram truck sales rose 1 percent. Dodge, Fiat and Chrysler sales all fell. ■■Honda’s sales fell 5 percent to 115,441. The company was hurt by an 18-percent decline in sales at its Acura luxury brand. ■■Nissan’s sales rose 4 percent to 107,083. Truck and SUV sales jumped 15 percent, but Leaf electric car sales dropped 60 percent. ■■Hyundai’s sales rose 12 percent to 60,007. Sales of its newly redesigned Tucson SUV nearly doubled over last November.
Rudder, pilot action blamed in Airbus crash By Niniek Karmini Associated Press
A rudder control system problem that had occurred 23 times in the previous 12 months coupled with the pilots’ response led to last year’s crash of an AirAsia plane that killed all 162 people on board, Indonesian investigators said Tuesday. In releasing their report, the National Transportation Safety Committee said an analysis of Flight 8501’s data recorder showed the rudder control system had sent repeated warnings
Spending on construction up during October U.S. construction spending jumped in October, fueled by solid gains in home building and the largest increase in federal construction in nine years. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that construction spending rose 1 percent in October from the previous month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of more than $1.1 trillion. That’s the highest level since December 2007 when the Great Recession began. More Americans are buying new homes or renting apartments, driving greater residential development. And federal, state and local governments, spurred partly by greater tax revenue, are building more roads and schools. Construction spending has increased 13 percent in the past 12 months.
Ford goes all in on aluminum trucks
Associated Press DETROIT — November used to be a slow month for U.S. car sales. Not anymore. Black Friday promotions — some of which began well before Thanksgiving — were expected to push last month’s sales to nearrecord levels. Car buying site Edmunds.com predicted sales of new cars and trucks will hit 1.33 million, eclipsing the previous November record set in 2001. General Motors’ sales rose 1.5 percent over last November, while Toyota and Fiat Chrysler’s each saw 3 percent sales gains. Hyundai’s sales jumped 12 percent, while Nissan’s were up 4 percent. Ford’s sales were flat. Honda’s sales fell 5 percent, hurt by lower CR-V sales. But the biggest sales declines were at Volkswagen. VW’s U.S. sales plummeted almost 25 percent, hurt by the company’s admission that its diesel vehicles cheated on emissions tests. November was a notoriously slow sales month until about five years ago, when car dealers joined other retailers in promoting Black Friday, according to Edmunds analyst Jessica Caldwell. Now, like Amazon, Wal-Mart and others, dealers started promoting “Black Friday” deals as early as Halloween. Jeep offered zero percent financing for up to 75 months. GM teased savings of up to 20 percent of for its Buick, Chevrolet and GMC brands. Hyundai offered an extra $500 on the Sonata sedan between Nov. 20 and Nov. 30. Ford’s U.S. sales chief Mark LaNeve said sales got progressively stronger as November progressed, and the last day of

Aircraft maintenance records for the Airbus A320 showed that similar problems with the rudder system had occurred 23 times during the year prior to the crash, including nine instances in December. The investigators said the fault was caused by cracked soldering on an electronic card. Investigator Nurcahyo Utomo said the problem by itself should not have been dangerous. But after the fourth time an alarm went off during the flight, a crew

Ford will spend $1.3 billion and add 2,000 jobs at its truck plant in Louisville, Kentucky, where it will make its next-generation Super Duty pickup. The size of the investment reflects the automaker’s decision to build future generations of vehicles, including some of its largest, with aluminum bodies instead of steel in a bid to shed weight and improve fuel economy. The recently negotiated 2015 contract between Ford and the United Auto Workers union calls for another $600 million investment, to go toward the next-generation Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, which are also made at the Louisville plant and are expected to get aluminum bodies.
Manufacturing index declines in China Chinese manufacturing was at its weakest in more than three years in November despite stimulus measures to bolster the world’s No. 2 economy, according to a survey released Tuesday. The manufacturing index based on a survey of factory purchasing managers slipped for the fourth straight month, falling to 49.6 in November from 49.8 the previous month. The index is based on a 100-point scale, with the 50-point mark separating expansion from contraction.
U.S. Volvo plant to lay off workers Volvo Trucks will lay off 734 production workers at its plant in Virginia due to a slowdown in demand, the company disclosed Tuesday. Layoffs at the New River Valley Assembly Plant in Dublin will take place over three weeks starting in early February, a company spokesman said. He said Volvo must adapt to market changes including a decline in demand for long-haul trucks. “We’re seeing that highway truck customers, who drove much of the recent market growth in America, have largely accomplished the renewal of their fleet, so demand from that segment in particular is softening,” he said.

Target discounts bring success, some headaches Bloomberg News NEW YORK — Target Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell has gotten more aggressive with holiday discounts during his second year of a turnaround effort, a strategy that is undercutting some rivals on price while also bringing headaches. The company offered a 15 percent discount on almost all its products online Monday, a more widespread deal than in
past years. It also lowered prices on many apparel and toy products by 30 percent, shifting away from the buy-one-get-one-discounted approach it used in 2014. The promotions were so popular that Target drew twice the traffic of its previous record-setting day, forcing the retailer to throttle back access to its website. Target also has offered some of the industry’s lowest prices on toys, a key category during the

holidays. Its toy prices were 1.3 percent below those of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. during Black Friday and 5.2 percent cheaper than Amazon.com Inc., according to an online survey by Bloomberg Intelligence. Target also undercut Toys “R” Us Inc. and Sears Holdings Corp.’s Kmart chain, the survey found. While those types of discounts squeeze profit margins, they could help Target improve its reputation and lure away customers from rivals, said Mariam Sherzad, of Bloomberg Intelligence. “For a long time, WalMart was associated with having the lowest prices,” Sherzad said. “If Target is able to brand itself as being well-priced, it could steal some Wal-Mart customers. It could also help make online sales a bigger piece of the pie. And last, it’s a fight to defend its customers from Amazon.” Wal-Mart and Amazon remain formidable on price, though, and the companies question whether the toy survey accurately reflects their discounts. Wal-Mart said that the limited subset of products measured — the study compared 37 identical toys sold at Target and WalMart — didn’t show its full range of pricing. To cope with Monday’s traffic surge, Target forced many users to wait for access to the website. Some visitors to Target’s site were greeted with the message: “Please hold tight. So sorry, but high traffic’s causing delays.”

weather. They asked to climb from 32,000 feet to 38,000 feet to avoid threatening clouds, but were denied permission because of heavy air traffic. Four minutes later, the plane dropped off the radar. No distress signal was issued, and investigators said weather conditions did not play a role in the crash. Only 106 bodies were recovered from the sea due to rough conditions and poor underwater visibility that hampered divers’ efforts. Most of those on board were Indonesian headed to Singapore ahead of the New Year holiday. “There is much to be learned here for AirAsia, the manufacturer and the aviation industry,” tweeted Tony Fernandes, chief executive of the Malaysia-based budget carrier. “We will not leave any stone unturned to make sure the industry learns from this tragic incident.” AirAsia Indonesia said more pilot training along with a new system that provides real-time monitoring of aircraft warning messages has been initiated as a result of the crash. The Associated Press was referred to the statement when asking why the faulty rudder system was not fixed, but the issue was not

addressed there. Indonesia’s aviation safety record has been plagued with problems stemming largely from the explosion of travelers and new airlines popping up in the archipelago of 250 million people. Pilot shortages, shoddy maintenance and poor oversight have all been blamed following a string of deadly incidents in recent years. The AirAsia crash came at the end of a particularly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia, including the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March 2014 with 239 people aboard, and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 four months later over Ukraine, which killed all 298 passengers and crew.

IN OUR VIEW | Threats to WWU students
Students, watch your yakking The posts on Yik Yak, an anonymous social media smartphone app, were without question racist and threatening. Following discussion last month that Western Washington University’s Viking mascot was viewed by some students as racist, debate on the smartphone app ranged from fair comment to outright racist remarks and threats of harm to individuals and all students of color at the college, including references to lynching, photos of a gun and a noose and comments that attacked the school’s student government president, a black woman, for criticizing the mascot: “This is the [n-word] who started the whole thing,” read one post. That and other threats on the app led to cancellation of classes Nov. 24 at the Bellingham-based university. On Monday, classes resumed and Bellingham police arrested a suspect in some of the threats, a 19-year-old Western sophomore. A bail hearing
was scheduled Tuesday for Tysen Campbell, identified by the school and later in news reports, as having attended Granite Falls High School. Campbell, Western officials said, has been suspended from the college and banned from campus pending the outcome of any criminal charges. Campbell’s mother, interviewed by the Seattle Times, said Campbell was being “sarcastic because he was annoyed by all of the uproar” and that he was neither a violent nor racist person. In the days between the threats and Campbell’s arrest the university came under criticism for not doing more to protect student safety. Belina Seare, the student government president identified in the posts, justifiably felt threatened and concerned for her safety. Western President Bruce Campbell, despite having canceled classes and condemning the threats made on social media, has been criticized by Seare and others for characterizing the campus
as being generally safe and for not arranging for aroundthe-clock protection for those individuals who had been threatened. The incident and the appropriate response should be openly discussed among Western officials, its public safety department, faculty, staff and students. But students also might want to question how they use a social media site that allows the posting of anonymous comments and whether their own posts were fair comment, hate speech or threat. Yik Yak’s terms of service list threats and racially offensive language as “unauthorized activities,” yet the threats and racist language lingered long enough for many users to see them, creating a sense of unease for many. Unease is common on many college campus this fall, following the fatal shootings at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, in October, and protests over racism and threats at the University or Missouri in November.
In recent years, Western’s Campbell has earned praise and condemnation, depending on the source, for comments he has repeatedly made that should the college in 10 years be “as white as we are today, we will be relentlessly driven toward mediocrity.” In a blog post in early 2014, Campbell expanded on his comment to explain that he didn’t mean that more whites had to be excluded from admission; but as a university that seeks state residents for 90 percent of its admissions, Campbell said, Western had to work to reflect the state’s own increasing diversity. University officials have a responsibility for creating a campus atmosphere that is safe, inclusive and promotes opportunities for learning. But students also have a responsibility for promoting that sense of safety and inclusiveness amongst themselves. They can start by carefully considering their own words before they hit “send.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■■AMAZON
Time to oppose drones is now So, Amazon is looking to bless us “consumers” with 30-minute delivery of our packages with drones? Heck, yeah! Let’s fill the air with noise-polluting contraptions that can run into power lines, scare birds and people, crash onto cars and houses, threaten airplanes, put the Post Office and UPS workers out of a job (like Amazon has done with shopping malls and jobs), and allow this destructive company to ruin our skies and serenity and economy a little further! Just what we need! Where is the outrage? On second thought, maybe these things will make great target practice for duck hunters! Robert Van den Akker Monroe
Ponds, culverts in need of work The detention ponds and culverts in Lake Stevens are failing due to neglect and lack of maintenance. This was acknowledged by Lake Stevens City Council members at the Nov. 24 meeting, preceding a vote to amend LSMC Section 14.48.055, increasing allowed impervious surfaces from 40 percent to 65 percent in High Urban Residential zones. Simply stated, this allows larger houses on small lots. The amendment passed 5 to 1. SeaPac applied for this amendment. SeaPac is the developer of Westlake Crossing, a proposed development of 66 lots on 10.48 acres at 619 99th Avenue SE. This property contains six wetlands and is bordered by wetlands and expanding beaver ponds, fed by the remains of Stitch Creek which once flowed to Stitch Lake. “No adverse impacts to the wetlands are expected.” Stormwater runoff will be managed via “natural filtration methods” and “existing drainage patterns.” A large detention pond and existing culverts are essential pieces of the development’s drainage design. Which brings us back to the beginning. The detention ponds and culverts in Lake Stevens are failing due to neglect and lack of maintenance.

Costs keep going up for taxpayers The fire districts have been very active in Olympia attempting, unsuccessfully, to get a levy lid lift and a simply majority approval for the Fire Benefit Charge levy renewal. The fire service has put off by their loss of income during the Great Recession, having for the first time to accept being told “no.” Now as property values rise, so does their income. Fire District 1 continues to promote a fire benefit charge that adds a charge based on square footage to your property tax bill. They promote this as being more equitable to the homeowner where in reality it’s a money grab, as in their own words it will provide access to vast amounts of cash! Business and homeowners really get socked as everyone gets to pay for fire service twice. Local fire districts continue to develop their community paramedic programs, which uses paramedics to visit patients needing non-emergency medical or social services. This is without monetary assistance from the hospitals, which will benefit due to reduced emergency department use. Kent, which has a fire benefit charge, has a similar community resource paramedic program and has hired two nurses. Fire District 1 has hired a “fall specialist” in addition to its community paramedic. Hayward, California, is building a new fire clinic where the fire department/EMS service shares a building with a medical clinic and EMTs will be crossedtrained to provide primary medical care.

Incivility, claims don’t add up Regarding the letter, “Jobless numbers complete fiction”: Yes, jobless rates do not include those who have been unemployed for over 100 weeks, because generally if you aren’t being paid you stop applying; if you don’t apply you’re not reported, if not reported you’re not counted. It’s been that way since President Clinton. The jobless rate comparison between years is fairly close to comparing apples and apples. A President Bush rate of 8 percent is still 2 percent higher than the President Obama rate of 6 percent. The well-read person would know this, but if not, would look a little further. The word liar was used a lot and seems to reflect our current political climate of incivility. The first part of the letter called a bunch of different people and The Herald liars, yet the truth seems to have slipped in the last part where “millions” have stopped looking and the unemployment rate would be closer to “20 percent.” Where do these numbers come from? Which database has these “millions” listed? Was this the truth? Is it because everyone knows? If someone wants to shout fire, he should check his own pants first. Chuck Best Duvall
Another shot to tie jobs to Boeing tax cut
recently purchased a T-shirt from the Boeing store for my daughter, who is fan of the 737. It says, “If it’s not Boeing, I’m not going!” That may be true for her — but Boeing jobs are certainly on their way out of Washington. How can this be? The Legislature met for a threeday special session in the fall of 2013, specifically to put in special tax breaks for the aerospace JOHN BURBANK giant. That bill, sponsored by state Rep. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle,and state Sen. Andy Hill, R-Redmond, was introduced one day, had one hearing in the House, one in the Senate and passed the next day. Those tax breaks work out to about $550 million a year. Since they were made law, Boeing has moved 3,600 jobs out of our state. That makes the recent news about the company avoiding $20 million in sales taxes last year an especially bitter pill. Boeing jobs are going to California, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Missouri and South Carolina — but apparently not for the tax breaks in those states. The first three on that list have no special tax breaks for the company. Missouri‘s tax break amounts to $229 million over ten years, and requires Boeing to create 2,000 jobs to get it. South Carolina’s tax deal totals $1 billion, and requires the company to produce 5,800 jobs in that state. Washington’s deal looks like gross largesse by comparison: a total of $12 billion in tax breaks since 2003 — with no requirement for new jobs, or even keeping existing jobs here! (Meanwhile, Boeing is developing a new finishing plant for the 737 in China.) If the Legislature had tied its tax “carrot” to jobs, we could have created up to 11,000 median wage jobs here. That would have been a fair trade. Our legislators can fix what’s gone wrong. In fact, Reps. June Robinson, D-Everett, Mike Sells, D-Everett and Luis Moscoso, D-Mountlake Terrace, have proposed legislation to tie tax breaks to jobs. House Bill 2147 would reduce Boeing’s tax breaks by increments for every drop in Boeing employment, starting with a baseline of 83,295 workers. That was Boeing’s Washington workforce when the tax breaks were passed. If Boeing shed 5,000 workers, then the tax break would dry up completely. The House Finance Committee gave this bill one hearing, and then sat on it. Rep. Mia Gregerson, D-SeaTac, Robinson, Sells, Moscoso, Lillian Ortiz-Self, D-Mukilteo, Strom Peterson, D-Edmonds, and Derek Stanford, D-Bothell, have sponsored a bill to require aerospace companies taking advantage of the tax incentives to pay workers who have worked for them for three years at least 80 percent of the state’s median wage (about $16 an hour) by 2016, 90 percent by 2017, and 100 percent by 2018. The House Labor Committee passed this bill. From there, it went to the House Finance Committee, where again, nothing happened. In January, state lawmakers will return to Olympia. Then those failures of legislative courage can be reversed by ensuring that the billion dollar aerospace tax breaks are tied to keeping good paying jobs right here in Washington. Boeing ended its first quarter with a $9.6 billion cash cushion, after repurchasing 17 million shares for $2.5 billion and raising dividends by about 25 percent compared with a year ago. So Monday’s news about the $20 million Washington lost in sales tax revenue to the company looks like small potatoes. But it’s a big deal for foster kids whose case managers are overstressed and overworked, trying to keep up with a workload that violates standards of care (and basic humanity). $20 million would enable our state to recruit and pay enough social workers to care for, protect and develop a pathway of hope and opportunity for these foster kids. Those 32,000 students can’t get state financial aid even though they qualify, because legislators cut State Need Grant funding. $20 million would put college within reach for thousands of these students. Those are just two of many examples. So what will it be when the Legislature convenes next month? Lumps of coal for those with the least, and billions of dollars for those with the most? Or will we recognize that giving tax dollars to a corporation that is shifting jobs out of our state is not a smart investment?

The County Council makes the following findings of fact: An emergency appropriation is necessary in the Solid Waste Fund 402 to aid the Solid Waste Division’s Waste Export program. There has been an unanticipated increase in the tonnage of waste received in 2015. The increase was not anticipated in the original 2015 budget. Section 2. The appropriation unit and allocation detail are as follows: 402 Solid Waste Fund EXPENDITURE: 5067064722 Waste Export Disposal $ 1,500,000 REVENUE: 3064014372 Franchise Collections $ 1,500,000 Total Emergency Appropriation Fund $ 1,500,000 Section 3. The County Council ﬁnds that there is a need for such emergency appropriation because the increase in waste tonnage received in 2015, could not have been determined prior to adoption of the 2015 budget. The County Council ﬁnds that the need for the appropriation constitutes a public emergency that could not reasonably have been foreseen at the time of budget approval and appropriation for the year 2015, and hereby authorizes the appropriation.

Improved O-line play might save Seahawks’ season Seattle has allowed just six sacks in its last four games after allowing a league-high 31 sacks in its first seven. By Gregg Bell The News Tribune
RENTON — What a difference a functional offensive line makes. Three games ago the Seahawks offense got ransacked by a swarming, blitzing defense from
Arizona. Russell Wilson connected on just 14 of 32 passes for the second-lowest completion rate (43.8 percent) of his career. Seattle converted only one of eight third downs. It lost the game and any realistic hope for its third consecutive NFC West title.
Last weekend the Seahawks offense faced another swarming, blitzing defense ... from Pittsburgh. Wilson hit on 21 of 30 throws for a career-high five touchdowns and 345 yards, his most in a regular-season game. Seattle converted seven of 13 Patrick Lewis third downs and
won the wild shootout 39-30. It was the first time in Wilson’s four seasons as their starting quarterback the Seahawks won when the opponent scored more than 24 points. What in the name of Walter Jones changed? “I think the most obvious part of this is really what’s going on up front,” coach Pete Carroll said as he began preparing the Seahawks
(6-5) for the NFC North-leading Vikings (8-3) Sunday in Minneapolis. “I think we’ve just come a long ways, and I think the pocket being so consistently solid for him makes a huge difference. “This has been coming. This (against Pittsburgh) was their best game probably protecting the passer against a very difficult See SEAHAWKS, Page C4

Newest Tip Martin will be ‘right in the mix’ By Jesse Geleynse Herald Writer
fell in a 37-34 thriller to Skyline last Saturday. Then, the next morning, Eason found out about Richt. “He seemed pretty stressed,” Tri said. “He was doing OK. I think he’s still feeling the effects from the game. That seems to be the most stress on him right now. ... I think he was feeling the effects of that still. And he’s just being bombarded right now with questions and he doesn’t have any answers.”
EVERETT — Brycen Martin remembers Oct. 20, 2013, because that’s the night the lights went out at Xfinity Arena. More precisely the lights went out four times, because that was the number of goals scored by the Everett Silvertips en route to a 4-1 victory over a Swift Current Broncos team that included a then-17-year-old Martin. Now the star defenseman will have only positive associations with the blackened arena as Martin skated his first practice with the Silvertips Tuesday since being traded to Everett from the Saskatoon Blades. “It’s a change going from cold Saskatoon to the nice United States,” said Martin, who arrived in time for Tuesday’s afternoon skate. “It’s a bit of a whirlwind of change, but they’ve all been so welcoming and it’s nice to be here.” Everett’s Monday acquisition of the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Calgary native reverberated across the WHL. A third-round pick of Buffalo during the 2014 NHL draft, Martin is an offensive-minded blue liner who will add depth to the Tips defense. He had three goals and 21 assists in 25 games with Saskatoon this season. Martin hadn’t been told whether or not he would play tonight, but the defense is a little thin with Kevin Davis currently out and listed as week-to-week with an upper body injury.

‘Wait and see’
Lake Stevens QB Eason visits Florida after Georgia ousts coach Richt By David Krueger Herald Writer
A whirlwind week for Lake Stevens quarterback Jacob Eason continued with a flight and an official visit to the University of Florida on Tuesday, according to several reports. Things drastically changed recently for Eason — who committed to Georgia the summer before his junior year — when the Bulldogs fired head coach Mark Richt on Sunday. Richt was just in the Pacific
Northwest to visit Eason and talk to one of his prized recruits over breakfast on Nov. 15. Eason’s visit to Florida lit up social media and sparked another frenzy regarding the highly coveted five-star recruit. “He’s not into all the glare and the high profile,” Lake Stevens head coach Tom Tri said. “He’s not looking for this. That’s my concern: Now if he’s in Florida there’s going to be a flood of people saying, ‘He opened his commitment. He wants to make a name for himself.’ That’s not
him at all. That’s not his cup of tea. He just wants to hang out with his high school buddies and play football. He’s just trying to make an informed decision and do his research. “It’s just kind of wait and see.” The Lake Stevens senior quarterback is one of the top recruits in the nation, ranked as high as No. 2 by several recruiting outlets. Eason threw for more than 3,700 yards and 44 touchdowns this season while helping lead the Vikings to the 4A state semifinals where they

Cascade’s Drew Magaoay is fouled by Marysville Pilchuck’s Freddy Brown on a drive to the basket Tuesday night at Cascade High School in Everett. Cascade won 60-53.
Cascade rallies in 4th quarter to beat Marysville Pilchuck 60-53 By Rich Myhre Herald Writer
EVERETT — Through three quarters, the visiting Marysville Pilchuck boys basketball team gave Cascade all it could handle on Tuesday night. The Tomahawks led for most of the first three periods and by as many as nine points. But in the fourth quarter, a veteran Cascade team finally started to play like it. Trailing by eight early in the final period, the Bruins ran off 13 straight points to take a lead they never lost. Midway through the quarter Marysville Pilchuck

rallied briefly, but Cascade again went on a run, scoring the game’s final six points for a 60-53 non-conference victory in the season opener for both teams. “In the first half I wasn’t real happy with what we were doing,” said Bruins head coach Darrell McNeal. “I felt like we were trying to be a bunch of individuals and not a team. And I felt like we were settling for 3s and not taking advantage of our size inside. “So going into halftime we made a couple of adjustments ... and then we came back out and did a better job of executing. We played more as a team versus a bunch of individuals.”
Cascade, coming off a trip to the state regionals last season, got 19 points from center Isaiah Gotell and 16 points from guard Cameron McGrath, both returning starters from a year ago. Guard Drew Magaoay, a transfer, chipped in 17 points. In particular, it was McGrath who sparked the Bruins offensively in the second half. After struggling with his outside shot in the first half (he had just two points after an early layin), he started the third quarter with a 3-pointer and later added two layins, and then began the

PHILADELPHIA — Kobe Bryant breezed through the Philadelphia 76ers locker room and said to no one in particular, “keep it going, guys.” His homecoming game spoiled, Bryant said one final goodbye to Philly, which is winless no more. The 76ers said good riddance to the longest losing streak in major U.S. professional sports — winless in 28 games dating to last season. And 0 for 18 to begin this one. No more. With the spotlight on Bryant during the final game of his career in his hometown, the Sixers stole the show and defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 103-91 on Tuesday night for their first victory of the season. The Sixers remain tied for the worst start in NBA history with the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets, who also opened 0-18. It was the first win for the Sixers since March 25 at Denver. “Finally,” forward Nerlens Noel said. Coach Brett Brown’s team has long languished at the bottom of the NBA standings and reeled off two separate losing streaks of at least 26 games in his three seasons. For one night, in front of a sellout crowd of 20,510 that came to cheer Bryant, the streaks hardly mattered. “I’m pleased for the city,” Brown said. “We don’t want this

fourth period with another 3-pointer and added four more points down the stretch. “We showed some good poise (late in the game), but that’s what a good, veteran team is supposed to be like,” McNeal said. “I’m definitely proud of their second-half effort, and I’m definitely proud of the way they settled down and took care of business.” Coming off a strong season a year ago, “these guys have such high expectations,” he added. “But my expectations start with having good practices. And that’s not an expectation, that’s a demand. To have good, intense practices so that we’re prepared for games like this ... and then let’s just keep getting better.” Marysville Pilchuck, meanwhile, was playing short-handed. Starting point guard Bryce Juneau is out for a time with a stress fracture in his leg, and Erik Lind and Kyle Kauk, both inside players and potential starters, were short on required practices for the first game. Still, the Tomahawks got 17 first-half points from guard Josh Bevan, on his way to a gamehigh 20 points, and post Tyler McDonald — a usual backup pressed into a starting role Tuesday — had eight of his 10 points

in the first half as Marysville Pilchuck jumped out early. “We obviously want to win every game we play, but at the same time we play (a tough) non-conference schedule so we can be tested,” said Tomahawks coach Bary Gould. And despite the loss to Cascade, he said, there were “tons of bright spots.”
“Obviously we would’ve hoped to hold on in the fourth quarter and get the W, but playing with seven (players), maybe our stamina wasn’t there. ... But we want games like this. We want to battle back and forth, and now we have one more game of experience so we’re excited to look forward.”

“I could sense they were like ‘I really don’t want to touch him.’ ... ‘Is this going to be an 81 type of situation?”’ Bryant said. “I’m just playing possum because I know my legs ain’t going to carry this energy for 48 minutes.” Bryant scored 20 points on 7-of-26 shooting and made four 3s. By the fourth quarter, the Philly fans had turned their attention toward the home team, chanting “Beat L.A.!” when beleaguered rookie Jahlil Okafor made a layup for a 94-80 lead. Okafor, the No. 3 overall pick out of Duke, has been attached to a string of off-court incidents that included reckless driving and a fight in Boston. Brown said Okafor, who has apologized for his recent decisions, will likely soon be accompanied by team security on public outings. Bryant said he would simply tell the 19-year-old rookie to stay focused on basketball. The Sixers stayed focused and finally finished the job after taking an 80-75 lead into the fourth. The 76ers had led after three quarters three other times this season: Nov. 21 at Miami (led 74-67, lost 96-91), Nov. 25 at Boston (led 62-57, lost 84-80) and Nov. 29 at Memphis (led 67-64, lost 92-84), according to STATS. Robert Covington scored 23 points and Jerami Grant and Noel had 14 for the Sixers. The win belonged to Philadelphia. The night belonged to Bryant.

streak continuing.” Hours earlier, Bryant felt the love in Philadelphia as soon as he entered the arena. He took selfies with fans who might never see him play again, and his presence injected a playoff atmosphere into a city that has lost much of its passion in NBA basketball. With a packed crowd standing and roaring in appreciation, Bryant was lauded like a hometown hero, not the “Hometown Zero” he was once labeled in Philadelphia’s tabloids. Bryant, who will end his 20-year career this season, opened the first leg of his farewell tour in his hometown and was feted with the kind of reverence and gratitude normally reserved for a Sixers great. “I wasn’t expecting that type of reaction, ovation,” he said. “Deeply appreciative beyond belief. It was really, really special.” Playing with the shot selection of a pickup artist, Bryant tried to deliver a special performance in his finale. He buried a step-back 3-pointer off the opening tip. He hit another 3 on the next possession. Bryant made it 3 for 3 and had the Philly crowd chanting “M-VP!” as he turned back the clock to his championship form. “It was a little spurt of oldschool Kobe,” Noel said. Bryant said he could tell the start made the Sixers a little starstruck — most were babies when he started his career.

De Fratus, 28, became a free agent in October when he rejected an outright assignment to the minors upon clearing waivers after compiling a 5.51 ERA in 61 games. That followed a successful 2014, when he compiled a 2.39 ERA in 54 games. He had a 3.08 ERA in 130 games over four seasons for the Phillies prior to last year’s struggle.

WSU’s Josh Hawkinson (24) leads the Cougars in scoring, averaging 18 points per game.
Face of the Cougars Shorewood’s Hawkinson leads WSU against Zags By Todd Milles The News Tribune
PULLMAN — Ernie Kent has had his eye on Josh Hawkinson for a while. Back in 2012-13, Kent was in his final year as an analyst for the Pac-12 Network. He scouted a Washington State University men’s basketball practice under former coach Ken Bone. Kent kept looking at the skyscraping, littleused freshman on the side whom the Cougars were intent on developing into a low-post player. Except that Hawkinson, out of Shorewood High School, kept making a bunch of 3-pointers after practice. “I watched him shoot around and do some things, and I kept thinking to myself, ‘Wow, his skill set is really good,’” Kent said. “He had soft hands. He could shoot it. He understood post play ... but I am always one who thinks about playing to someone’s strengths rather than make them something (else).” Bone was fired after that season. Kent — who spent 13 seasons at Oregon — took over the job. And one of the first conversations he had with a WSU player was with Hawkinson. “One of the first things I told him was he wasn’t a back-to-the-basket, low-post player that needed to put on 20 pounds or so,” Kent said. “He was a guy who needed to play his own game — and that was like a European ‘stretch’ (power forward). “A big smile came across his face — and I have been smiling ever since.” In his first season as a full-time starter, the 6-foot-10 Hawkinson was the only player in the Pac-12 to average a doubledouble — 14.7 points and 10.8 rebounds per game — in playing second fiddle to DaVonte Lacy. Hawkinson’s 20 doubledoubles broke Jim McKean’s school record of 17 set in 1967. Lacy is gone, and Hawkinson is currently the face of the program. The 4-0 Cougars host 13th-ranked Gonzaga on Wednesday night at
Beasley Coliseum. But Hawkinson warns he isn’t planning on changing his game by asking for the basketball more or taking more shots. “I’ll kind of continue to do what I did last year, and not push it,” he said. “DaVonte could take guys one-on-one, and that was a big part of our offense as the primary scorer. I fill a role by finding open lanes and taking open shots. I don’t force anything.” Hawkinson has seen an uptick in scoring (18.0 ppg) and field goal attempts (nearly 14 shots per game) over last season. He is also shooting 55 percent from the floor. But as Kent says: “He has the green light to shoot it as much as he wants.” Hawkinson knows he does not have the appearance or presence of one of the conference’s brightest stars. He never has. “I don’t have the ‘wow’ factor,” Hawkinson said. “That has been a thing for my entire life because I have a baby face. I look like I am 12 and in middle school. I am not overly big, explosive or athletic. “There are a lot of guys who can dunk between their legs, or do a 360 (dunk) or other kinds of athletic moves. I do the little things that no one really notices. I quietly put up numbers.” Make no mistake — Hawkinson is a better athlete than he looks. Besides being a fouryear letterman at Shorewood in basketball, he earned two letters in baseball. And now he has a new sports addiction — golf. Teammate Brett Boese introduced him to golf earlier this year. At first, the two would play at the University of Idaho Golf Course, and Hawkinson struggled to break 120. Now, he is shooting in the high 80s. And late in the summer, he recorded his first eagle on a par-5 hole at Palouse Ridge Golf Club, hitting a 4-iron approach to finish near the hole. “It was a tap-in eagle,” he said with a smile. He has new clubs, a Nike golf bag and balls — and a Cougar ball marker. “It is hard to get that fix in now,” he said.
The final regular-season College Football Playoff ranking confirmed one thing: that most of the drama about this season’s playoff field has already been drained. Tuesday’s ranking release basically laid out the template for the fourteam playoff: Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma and the Big Ten championship game winner, Michigan State or Iowa, are headed toward semifinal matchups on New Year’s Eve in the Orange and Cotton bowls. Oklahoma, despite its loss to Texas early in the season, is a lock because the Sooners are finished playing. The Big 12 is the only power conference that does not have a title game. Clemson retained the top spot this week in spite of a lackluster win over woeful South Carolina. Alabama is second, followed by Oklahoma, Iowa and Michigan State. Ohio State is No. 6, followed by Stanford, which moved up two spots after Saturday’s win over Notre Dame. The Irish dropped from fourth to eighth; Florida State and North Carolina moved up to Nos. 9 and 10. The winner of the Michigan State-Iowa game is in, so any change to the playoff lineup would have to start with a loss by Clemson and/or Alabama in their conference title games, which could open a possible path for Stanford. Clemson plays North Carolina for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship; Alabama plays Florida for the Southeastern Conference title. If it can win the Pac-12 championship Saturday against USC, Stanford is likely to move up at least two spots, jumping the loser of the Big Ten title game as well as Ohio State, which did not win its Big Ten division. The final ranking and pairings will be announced Sunday.

UW’s Baker, Jones selected to All-Pac-12 first team defense By Christian Caple The News Tribune
SEATTLE — Two Washington Huskies defensive players were selected first-team All-Pac-12 on Monday, and another two made the second team. Sophomore safety Budda Baker and sophomore cornerback Sidney Jones were each voted to the first team by league coaches. Senior linebacker Travis Feeney and senior defensive tackle Taniela Tupou were announced as second-team selections. Six other Huskies also received honorable mention: freshman tailback Myles Gaskin; sophomore linebacker Azeem Victor; senior tight end Joshua Perkins; freshman nose tackle Greg Gaines; senior linebacker Cory Littleton; and junior cornerback Kevin King. Baker and Jones’ selections mark the first time two UW defensive backs have been named first-team all-conference in the same season since 1978. Jones, a sophomore from Diamond Bar, California, is tied for the league lead in passes defended (13) and forced fumbles (3), and he ranks second in the Pac-12 in interceptions (4). Baker, the star sophomore from Bellevue, finished the regular season with 42 tackles and two interceptions. Feeney, from his buck linebacker position, ranked third in the Pac-12 in sacks (7.0) and fourth in tackles for loss (15.5). Tupou, who prepped at Archbishop Murphy High School in Everett, started every game and had 4.5 tackles for loss. Washington State quarterback Luke Falk, receiver Gabe Marks and left tackle Joe Dahl were each first-team selections, and defensive linemen Destiny Vaeao and Darryl Paulo were named to the second team. WSU coach Mike Leach was named the Pac-12 Co-Coach of the Year, sharing the honor with Stanford’s David Shaw.

SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners, in a race to beat the clock, closed in Tuesday night on a deal that would sent first baseman/outfielder Mark Trumbo to Baltimore for catcher/first baseman Steve Clevenger. Sources from both sides confirmed discussions were nearing a conclusion and that Baltimore would receive another player in the deal. That player was not identified but is believed to be on the Mariners’ 40-man roster. “It’s going to get done,” one source said. “We’re down to looking at medicals (records). Barring something unexpected, we’ve got a deal.” The trade’s seeming benefit to the Mariners is that it clears payroll and, apparently, a roster space. Trumbo, 29, is eligible for arbitration and projected to make $9.1 million in 2016. Clevenger, 29, is not yet eligible and figures to make about $520,000. The biggest hurdle, one source said, was the Orioles’ concern they might needlessly be surrendering a player (Clevenger) amid speculation Trumbo could soon be a free agent. Clubs must offer contracts to all unsigned players on their 40-man roster by 9 p.m. Wednesday. Those who don’t receive an offer become free agents with no compensation to their former clubs if they sign elsewhere. The contract deadline appeared to force general manager Jerry Dipoto into action inasmuch as the Mariners seemingly did not want to obligate themselves to possible salary arbitration with Trumbo. Players who receive a contract offer by Wednesday’s deadline are considered signed players even if their salary has yet to be negotiated. As such, they are eligible for separation pay if subsequently released. That compensation amounts to roughly onesixth of a player’s salary even if he is released more than 15 days before the season starts. The Mariners, by extending an offer to Trumbo, would effectively be taking a $1.5 million gamble that they could trade him at a later date. The alternative would be to retain him at his full salary. The club has three other arbitration-eligible players: reliever Charlie Furbush (who projects to get $1.7 million), outfielder Leonys Martin ($3.75 million) and pitcher Anthony Bass ($1.1 million). Players not yet eligible for arbitration must also be offered contracts but — as is the case with Clevenger — they have little negotiating leverage and typically sign for the major-league minimum ($507,500) or slightly more. The Mariners’ desire to trade Trumbo, a proven power hitter who averaged 26 homers over the last five years, stems from a belief that he is a poor fit in Dipoto’s quest to build a more athletic, better defensive club. Dipoto reached the same conclusion roughly two years ago when, as general manager of the Los Angeles Angels, he traded Trumbo to Arizona in a three-team deal that involved six players. The pending deal would leave the Mariners with Jesus Montero as the only full-time first basemen on their 40-man roster, although Stefen Romero and Pat Kivlehan have played the position on occasion. The trade would also position catcher Mike Zunino, once viewed as a franchise cornerstone, as a long shot to make the club. Zunino was a starter for two-plus seasons before closing last year in the minors. The Mariners held multiple discussions with the Orioles and Colorado Rockies over the last two weeks in an effort to trade Trumbo. When talks with the Rockies stalled, the Mariners pushed harder with the Orioles. Clevenger, 29, is a left-handed hitter who is out of options. He batted .287 last season in 30 games for the Orioles but spent much of the year at Triple-A Norfolk, where he batted .305 in 75 games. A seventh-round pick by the Chicago Cubs in 2006, he reached the majors in 2011. A July 2013 trade brought Clevenger to the Orioles in a four-player swap that sent Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta to the Cubs. Clevenger has a .228 career average in 148 games over parts of five big-league seasons, but he has a .310 average in 733 minor-league games over 10 years. Trumbo batted .263 last season with 13 homers and 41 RBIs in 96 games after joining the Mariners with pitcher Vidal Nuno from Arizona in a June 3 trade. The Diamondbacks received catcher Welington Castillo, reliever Dominic Leone and two minorleague players: outfielder Gabby Guerrero and infielder Jack Reinheimer. That trade represented an effort by the Mariners’ previous regime to jump-start what, at that point, was a struggling attack. But Trumbo got off to a dreadful start at 11-for-79 in his first 22 games. Trumbo then rallied by batting .302 over his final 74 games with 12 homers and 36 RBIs. Overall, he finished last season at .262 in 142 games with 22 homers and 64 RBI.

Source: Red Sox agree to 7-year, $217 million deal with Price Associated Press BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox and AL Cy Young runner-up David Price have agreed to terms on a seven-year free-agent deal worth $217 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the deal — the largest ever for a pitcher — is pending a physical. It is expected to be announced on Friday, the person told the AP. A left-hander who was the AL’s top pitcher in 2012 and the runner-up twice in seven full major league seasons, Price has a 3.09 ERA with 1,372 strikeouts and 104 wins. He went 18-5 with a 2.45 ERA in 2015, striking out 225. Choosing the Red Sox reunites Price with president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, who until this August was the Detroit Tigers’ general manager. Dombrowski has had a hand in all three of Price’s moves the past two years. After spending his entire career in Tampa Bay, Price was acquired by Detroit at the 2014 trade deadline. A year later, the Tigers traded him to the Blue Jays at the July 31 non-waiver deadline and Price helped Toronto reach the playoffs for the first time since 1993.
Seahawks sign tight end Coffman, release ex-starting center Nowak By Gregg Bell The News Tribune
The Seattle Seahawks responded to losing Jimmy Graham for the rest of the season to knee surgery by adding tight-end depth. And it comes at the expense of their former starting center. In a telling admission of a mistake along its offensive line to begin this uneven season, Seattle released Drew Nowak. He is the former college defensive tackle who was the team’s starting center for the first five games.
The Seahawks signed tight end Chase Coffman to fill Nowak’s spot on the active roster. Coffman, 29, is a 6-foot-6, 244-pound former Titan. Tennesee released him in October. Coffman was a third-round draft choice out of Missouri in 2009. He’s played for Cincinnati, Atlanta and Tennessee. He has 14 catches for 148 yards and one touchdown in his career. Nowak lost his starting job in midOctober to Patrick Lewis as Seattle experimented with replacements since trading two-time Pro Bowl
center Max Unger to New Orleans in March for Graham. Veteran Lemuel Jeanpierre, who was Unger’s backup for five seasons, is now the No. 2 center behind Lewis. The Seahawks also made practice squad moves, releasing defensive end Julius Warmsley and signing receiver Deshon Foxx, who spent training camp with the Seahawks, and defensive tackle Justin Hamilton, an undrafted rookie out of Louisiana-Lafayette who previous spent time on Seattle’s practice squad this season.

group to figure out who’s coming, who isn’t. Communication was good. Sets were really solid. Russell had a really good pocket and he really took advantage of that.” The change up front has been season-saving. The Seahawks were at 4-5 and careening toward a meaningless December. Wilson got sacked 31 times in the first seven games, by far the most in the NFL. Carroll’s and offensive line coach Tom Cable’s grand experiment for 2015 was failing. Drew Nowak, the college defensive tackle they inserted as traded Max Unger’s replacement as the starting center, was out after five, frustrating games. Justin Britt, last season’s rookie right tackle, was struggling as the left guard. Garry Gilliam, a college tight end, was having an inconsistent debut at right tackle. Not only were pass rushers crashing in on Wilson, the line was also struggling to get in any defender’s way long enough for Seattle’s zone running game to work consistently. Then there were the line’s myriad penalties. From false starts to drivekilling holdings, face masks, leg whips — you name it, the Seahawks’ line was getting flagged for it. Because of all that, Seattle was in the bottom third of the NFL in extending drives on third down. It was last in the league in converting red-zone opportunities into touchdowns. The defense didn’t have the advantageous field position, the margin for error on the scoreboard or the in-game rest it’d had in the previous two seasons while being the league’s top-ranked unit. The offensive line was ruining the entire season. Now it is saving it. Seattle has allowed six sacks combined in its last four games, 1.5 per game after allowing 4.4 sacks per contest through seven weeks. Yes, lately it’s been against Dallas (which inexplicably blitzed just nine percent of the time on Nov. 1) and a San Francisco defense that is a shell of its former, championship self. But after what they had the first seven games, the Seahawks will gladly accept those asterisks. The better pass protection has allowed receivers time to run down the field and actually complete intermediate and deep routes. Meanwhile, Wilson has been settling inside a semi-strong pocket from which to throw, instead of having to abort pass plays with life-preserving scrambles, as before. Opponents have been stretched vertically and horizontally to defend those longer throws instead of cramming nine guys near the line to defend Seattle’s run, as foes had previously. That’s opened more running lanes for Thomas Rawls since

“I would say there is a much (greater) likelihood that he’ll play than not play,” Everett head coach Kevin Constantine said of Martin. “He was able to get a practice in and we’ve got to get him going. So I think most likely he’ll be in.” Martin wasn’t entirely surprised when he was told he was traded. He was dealt from Swift Current to Saskatoon in the middle of last season to serve in a mentoring role for a rebuilding Blades team. Saskatoon finished 19-49-2-2 last season and is 10-12-3-0 this season. The Broncos reached the playoffs in his two full seasons in Swift Current, but did not advance past the first round either year. “I’ve played on rebuilding teams my entire career, so it’s nice to be on a team that’s ready to roll and is looking forward to this year rather than (next year),” Martin said. “I’m

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw five TD passes against the Steelers.
Marshawn Lynch was lost for the next month to abdominal surgery. Rawls rushed for a Seattle rookierecord 209 yards two weeks ago against San Francisco, and had 51 yards in the first 16 minutes last week before it became an aerial shootout. In short, the offense is working how it’s designed to. Finally. So how did this all change for the so-much better? Carroll, Cable and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell spent the team’s bye week early last month following the 13-12 slog past Dallas changing the timing of Wilson’s passes. They demanded he throw the ball more quickly, including in situations when he took off scrambling to extend plays earlier this season. The reasoning was simple: The struggling blockers wouldn’t have to block as long for their QB. “The rhythm, since the break we had, we’ve really tried to feature a fast rhythm and making sure he’s really got a chance to get the ball out fast to keep the pressure off of the guys up front,” Carroll said. “All of that has happened with more earnest because of how the start was.” Then Cable decided to change centers. The coaches got alarmed late last season when Patrick Lewis, whom the team had signed off Cleveland’s practice squad in October, had issues in communication filling in for the injured Unger in a game the Seahawks won against the depleted Cardinals. That stuck in the coaches’ heads through this preseason, so they shoved Lewis down to third string and inserted the unproven Nowak to replace Unger. Nowak had even more communication problems than Lewis did. Plus, Nowak had trouble recognizing trick defensive fronts and the array of blitzes Seattle was seeing each week. Since going back to Lewis Oct. 18 against Carolina, the line’s calls have become quicker, cleaner and more accurate, as Lewis has better recognized the defenses. “Just more consistency,” Cable said of the difference with Lewis.
Carroll said Monday: “We thought he might have been struggling a little bit with the communications and all that. We wondered if that was going to be an issue going into this year. And that’s not an issue. That’s an area that he’s really improved at, and we have a lot of confidence in him. “The guys are playing with confidence, because it all starts right there up front, in the middle.” To help matters, Rawls and 34-year-old fellow backup running back Fred Jackson have at times excelled at pass blocking. Sunday, Rawls picked up Steelers rookie pass-rush specialist Bud Dupree on a blitz off Seattle’s right edge. That allowed Wilson the time to find Kearse for the 9-yard touchdown that put the Seahawks in front 26-21 early in the zany fourth quarter. On third and 10 with just over 2 minutes left, Jackson lowered his shoulders to thwart blitzing linebacker Jarvis Jones, who outweighs Jackson by 30 pounds. That gave Wilson the time to see Baldwin breaking free left to right across the middle for the wide receiver’s 80-yard catch and run that clinched the win. “We always stick it all on the offensive line, and it isn’t,” Carroll said. “Those guys are both good blockers, and we expect them to pick up stuff properly and be physical when they have to.” It’s been true since September: The Seahawks are only going to go as far as their offensive line does — or does not — lead them. Right now, it’s led them back into possession of the NFC’s final playoff spot. Five games remaining in this uneven regular season. “We’ve been fighting each week to just get a little bit better,” said veteran left tackle Russell Okung, who could become a free agent next spring. “Patrick Lewis and the young guys are playing really well. You can kind of see, everything looks more cohesive. Everything is flowing a lot better. And we’ve had success, whether we’re running it or we’re passing in the air.”
excited and (today) should be good.” The Silvertips play host to the TriCity Americans at 7 p.m. tonight at Xfinity Arena. If Martin makes his debut the question becomes how he will be used by the Everett coaching staff. “As far as his role, he’s been in the league a while,” Constantine said. “He’s played in all situations and I can’t imagine that we won’t be using him in all situations. So he’ll be right in the mix with everything we’re doing.” Tonight is the second straight Wednesday night matchup between the Silvertips and Americans. Everett (14-7-0-2, 30 points) has won three straight and dealt Tri-City a 5-0 defeat last week at Xfinity Arena. The Americans (10-16-1-0, 21 points) are coming off a 6-4 defeat to Spokane on Saturday. Leading scorer Parker Bowles (15 goals, 19 assists) and Jordan Topping (11 goals, 12 assists) are the Americans’ top offensive performers. Evan Sarthou (9-15-1-0, 3.82 goals-against average, .879 save percentage) and
Nicholas Sanders (1-1-0-0, 3.42 GAA, .878 save percentage) are the two goaltenders for Tri-City.
Juulsen invited to Team Canada camp Everett defenseman Noah Juulsen was one of 30 invitees to Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Selection Camp that will be held Dec. 10-14 in Etobicoke, Ontario. The camp will determined Team Canada’s 22-man roster by Dec. 20 for the IIHF U-20 World Junior Championship scheduled for Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Helsinki, Finland.
Hart earns more CHL, WHL honors Everett goaltender Carter Hart was named the CHL Goaltender of the Week and the WHL Goaltender of the Month Tuesday, one day after he was named the WHL Goaltender of the Week. Hart was 3-0-0-0 last week with a 0.33 GAA and a save percentage of .985. For the month of November he was 9-2-0-1 with a 1.16 GAA, a .951 save percentage and four shutouts. It’s the second CHL award in Hart’s career and the first time he has been named WHL goaltender of the month.

CrossFit is more than just exercise, it’s a training program with distinct purpose. Whether you are a mother of five or an athlete, CrossFit trainers can assist you in planning an individualized program for your needs. Fitness classes are available for adults, teens and youths.

diets with come-and-go exercise crazes aren’t found at Outer Edge. “The fitness industry is very dishonest. It has become all about selling quick fixes, ridiculous equipment and trying to make easy money. Nutrition follows suit. It has people chasing false hopes and unrealistic expectations,” Terry said. There is a certain amount of value to trying different health regimens before committing to one that suits your needs and personality. However, when programs are built around hype, they tend to follow a trendy pattern that lacks foundation and substance. While some may notice results at first, they are often short-lived and injuries can be more common as well.
Terry utilizes the progressive nature of CrossFit to ensure clients experience steady improvement with minimal risk of injury. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced CrossFit enthusiast, Terry promises to deliver continuous challenge and a bevy of new skills to learn. “The most challenging part about my job is teaching the movements used in CrossFit to a level that will serve the individual well when they surpass basic training,” he said. “You cannot CrossFit safely or obtain what [it] can truly offer without knowing how to move your body and weights properly. The learning curve is much harder than most other fitness programs.” But with great chal-

amily gatherings, extensive shopping adventures and frigid weather discourage many people from exercising this time of year. It’s easy to let time at the gym take a backseat, but your body may be worse for the wear come springtime. Jake Terry, Outer Edge CrossFit owner and trainer, understands the struggle but encourages all of his clients to continue their routines as best they can. Trainers at Outer Edge are eager to assist potential clients who are discouraged by the daunting prospect of a healthy, new lifestyle. Effective exercise isn’t just about being thin, it’s about being healthy. CrossFit training is the comprehensive use of functional movements to improve physical fitness. A strong body encourages healthy aging, both physically and mentally. Change and new concepts are often frightening in the beginning, but people who take the time to train their body learn what they are truly capable of. “I would say when you first start out [CrossFit] is more about learning and going at your own pace. As long as you are open to learning you will be just fine,” he said. CrossFit can be beneficial for anyone interested in improving their strength,

The Miami Hurricanes could be inching ever closer to naming their next football coach. Since the regular season ended Friday with a win over Pittsburgh, Miami officials have been busy interviewing several candidates who are in the running to become the school’s permanent coach, its fourth since the Hurricanes won a national title in 2001. One of the candidates meeting with Miami was the man who put together that championship roster, former Hurricanes coach Butch Davis, a source told the Sun Sentinel. Others that have interviewed with Miami, the source indicated, include former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, a former Hurricanes
Eason From Page C1
Eason turned his phone off early Sunday after an influx of calls and texts from coaches and media across the country. His trip to Florida comes shortly after a visit from Washington State head coach Mike Leach on Monday. Tri said the meeting with Leach was quick and educational. “It wasn’t very long. It was hard for (Eason),” Tri said. “It’s like, ‘Whoa! Hey! What’s going on?’ “It was definitely pleasant and informative. Wazzu would be a great school. That’s a great opportunity, too. Jake listened and was receptive and quiet.” Despite the craziness, Tri is encouraging Eason to keep a level head and stay positive. “I talked to him (Monday) when Wazzu was here,”
assistant, and Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen. While those interviews came over the weekend, the source also confirmed that former Georgia coach Mark Richt, who was fired this weekend, was set to meet with Miami on Tuesday. Richt, a former standout quarterback at Boca Raton High and a Hurricanes backup, said during his final news conference at Georgia that he was still interested in coaching and wanted to be more hands-on with play calling and quarterbacks coaching than he had been of late with the Bulldogs. The Hurricanes are not believed to be Richt’s only suitors. Maryland, Missouri and Virginia could be among the school’s competing with Miami for Richt’s services, and
the coach himself said Monday night during his weekly radio show that he’d been contacted by “about five” schools seeking to fill open jobs. Richt, 55, was fired Sunday after 15 seasons at Georgia, where he had a 145-51 record with two SEC championships. The Bulldogs played in five conference title games during his time as coach. Barring a last-minute snag in negotiations, Alabama’s Kirby Smart will become Georgia’s new football coach, according to multiple reports. An announcement could come as soon as Sunday or Monday. Smart, 39, is the Crimson Tide’s defensive coordinator. He is from Bainbridge, Ga. and was a UGA letterman (1995-98) and team captain as a senior.
Tri said. “I just told him to be himself and go with his gut decision and whatever he chooses is going to be the right path. ... I also told him look at the blessings, all the options you have. What if it happened next year after he was there for a year? This gives you a chance to explore all your options and make sure you make the right one.” According to Tri, before committing to Georgia Eason also showed interest in Pac-12 schools Washington, UCLA, California and Stanford. Other suitors included perennial national powers Florida, Alabama and Michigan. Wolverines first-year head coach Jim Harbaugh visited Eason at a Lake Stevens basketball game last season, soon after he got the job and several months after Eason had made a verbal commitment to the Bulldogs. But the Bulldogs remained Eason’s top choice.
“It was Georgia, then it was a distant second, third and fourth,” Tri said. According to multiple media reports, Richt interviewed at Miami for its head coaching job on Tuesday. The Hurricanes could become part of the recruiting mix for Eason if Miami hires Richt, who was a backup quarterback behind starter Jim Kelly when he played at the school. Eason signed a financial aid agreement in the summer and planned to graduate from Lake Stevens early and move to Georgia in January. Tri said that wherever Eason ends up, his goal remains to enroll early for spring practices. The Lake Stevens coach also said it’s important that Eason knows who he’s going to be playing for when he gets to campus. “It’s a big part of it,” Tri said. “They’re going to mold and shape you for the next three or four years of your life.”

These polar bear bars are simple to make and as delicious as the storebought version.
What would you do for a homemade Klondike bar? By Leah Eskin Chicago Tribune
The polar bear is no picky eater. It goes for seal, raw. Lacking seal, it will settle for whatever’s handy, even kelp. It’s hard to believe a string of seaweed satisfies the thousand-pound carnivore. But the Arctic menu is limited. After dinner, the bear enjoys a square of vanilla ice cream wrapped in chocolate and tinfoil — at least according to the freezer aisle. The Klondike bar, as closely studied as any spread in National Geographic, suggests as much. And why not? It’s hard work, balancing on ice floes, clobbering seals, and worrying about the world warming. Everyone needs a little sweet distraction. Chocolatecovered vanilla is just the thing: It’s cold, creamy and classic. Much like the bear it celebrates.

Spicy Tuscan kale is one of 136 recipes that Ruth Reichl says saved her after she lost her job when Gourmet magazine stopped publishing.
Former Gourmet editor finds refuge in cooking and writing By Gretchen McKay
1 quart premium-quality vanilla (or your favorite flavor) ice cream 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (or chips) 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped (or chips) 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil
Smooth: Let ice cream soften, about 10 minutes. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with plastic wrap, leaving some overhang. Scoop ice cream into the pan. Cover with plastic wrap, press smooth using first your hands, then something with a flat bottom, like a measuring cup or a smaller pan. Freeze firm, about 2 hours. Melt: Settle both kinds of chocolate and the coconut oil into a medium pan and melt over low heat until smooth, a few minutes. (Alternatively, pile ingredients into a bowl and zap in the microwave.) Stir smooth. Pour chocolate onto a plate or shallow bowl. Let cool to room temperature. Cut: Pull ice cream block from pan (the plastic overhang works nicely as handles). Unwrap. Use a long heavy knife to cut into nine squares. Set squares on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze firm, about 30 minutes. Dip: Stick a fork in the side of one ice-cream square. Dip in the chocolate, turning to coat all sides. Set chocolate-covered ice cream on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze. Repeat with remaining squares. Serve: Wrap each square in foil. Store in freezer. Remove from freezer 5 minutes before munching. Prep: 25 minutes. Wait: About 3 hours. Makes: 9 bars.
eople lose their jobs all the time, but usually, there’s some warning. Ruth Reichl’s dismissal in 2009 as editor of America’s oldest food magazine, Gourmet, came out of nowhere, like a crack of lightning. As she recounts in “My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved Me” (Random House, $35), which came out last month, she was in a Seattle restaurant, being interviewed by a reporter about the magazine’s just-published cookbook “Gourmet Today,” when she got the ominous call: Her boss at Conde Nast wanted her back in New York on the next flight. Less than 24 hours later, surrounded by staff, she learned that the 69-year-old institution was history. “I was gobsmacked,” she recalls over the phone. “We never saw it coming.” Mixed in with a sense of terrible loss were waves of unbearable guilt. As top dog, she couldn’t help but feel she had let her staff down. “I kept thinking, ‘If I’d been smarter, I would have been able to do something,’ ” she says. In reality, the monthly succumbed to dwindling advertising sales. Having worked since she was 16, she panicked at the thought of an empty calendar. “Retire? Oh my God, no,” she says. “My father worked to the day he died, and I will, too.” But who would hire a woman in her 60s? She did what she always does in times of stress and upheaval. After finishing her book tour, she
“My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life” by Ruth Reichl
retreated to the warm embrace of her kitchen, first in the city and later at her country house in upstate New York, and began to cook. A fragile year followed, and the cookbook grew out of it. Actually, she says, it’s not so much a cookbook as a story told in recipes. While she’s extremely proud of the two best-selling cookbooks she edited during her editorship tenure (“The Gourmet Cookbook” in 2006 and 2009’s “Gourmet Today”), they’re results-oriented, which can be scary for some cooks. “My Kitchen Year” is more of a conversation. “I wanted my book to encourage you to pay attention to what’s going on in the kitchen,” she says. To notice the color of a peach under the skin, how chicken sizzles when it hits a hot griddle, how water sounds
when it’s boiling. While authoritative (she has earned four James Beard Awards for her food writing), she’s not overly fussy with instructions, opting for a breezy, reassuring way of explaining things she hopes will encourage her readers to make the recipes their own. Vegetables are cut into “whatever size you consider edible” while bananas are “squished” into butter; chicken is not seasoned but “showered” with salt and pepper. The cooking itself never seems a chore but instead cause for celebration and way of making sense of the world. Sauce is stirred (and stirred) while the cooks drink wine, and the act of chopping parsley and almonds for salsa verde serves to exorcise demons. Charming and witty, the cookbook is not unlike her memoirs, “Tender at the Bone” and “Comfort Me With Apples.” “The physical act of cooking gives me enormous pleasure, but I also like watching what it does for others,” she writes. “Even the angriest person is soothed by the scent of soup simmering on a stove.” The book’s 136 recipes — culled from the more than 700 dishes she and her husband, Michael, ate that year — are arranged by season. Ingredients are divided into “staples” (things you probably have on hand) and “shopping list” (items you’ll probably have to buy). Each chapter begins with one of the lyrical tweets, followed by a short essay on how she came to choose the recipe that follows. While the cookbook makes
clear Reichl is one heck of a good cook, in her core, she says she’s a writer. She also considers herself an advocate for home cooking. Americans in the past few decades, she says, have come to see cooking as a performance test, “and that’s scary.” “If you make a bad meal, so what?” she asks. “There’s another meal in a few hours.”
Spicy Tuscan kale 3 large bunches lacinato (Tuscan) kale 2 large onions Olive oil 4 anchovy fillets Chili flakes Pepper 4 garlic cloves, smashed 1⁄4 pound parmesan cheese, grated Homemade bread crumbs (see below) Wash kale then strip leaves off the ribs. Tear leaves into large pieces and cook in pot of boiling salted water for a minute or so. Kale should stay a vibrant green. Drain, and run kale under cold water until it’s cool enough to comfortably hold in your hands, then squeeze out as much water as you can and set the kale aside. Chop onions into a casual dice; no need to be fussy about this step. Heat a healthy splash of olive oil in large skillet. Throw in anchovies and worry them with a wooden spoon until they’ve completely disintegrated. Add onions, a few pinches of chili flakes, a few grinds pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until everything is soft and fragrant. Toss in kale, along with garlic, and cook for another 10 minutes or so, until it’s all come together in a lively green mass. Taste for salt, add a bit more olive oil if you like, and stir in the parmesan cheese and the crisp bread crumbs for texture. Serves 8.

A simple guide to making delicious latkes this Hanukkah By Kathleen Purvis The Charlotte Observer
Why isn’t the rest of America as crazy about latkes as we are about bagels? After all, Hanukkah, which begins Dec. 6, is the holiday when you have permission to eat fried food. You’d think this would be the biggest event in the country by now. Despite their exoticsounding name, latkes are just grated potatoes
or vegetables, fried and topped with tasty things like sour cream, applesauce, maybe even smoked salmon. What’s not to love? Unfortunately, the making of a proper latke had escaped me. How do you keep the potatoes from turning dark before you can fry them? Does it have to be potato? And what’s with the applesauce? I needed an ubermensch. So I called Amy Rogers, the contributing editor of WFAE’s food

Last week, she trekked to my house bearing a small menorah, her favorite Fiestaware Hanukkah plate and a lot of thought about latkes. “I can’t stress enough that this is not an elegant dish,” she insisted. “It’s wandering food from a wandering people.” Rogers stripped off her

rings and bracelets, rolled up her sleeves and got to work, shredding peeled white potatoes on the big holes of a box grater and tossing them onto a cotton dish towel. Each taking a side, we rolled up the towel and twisted it as tight as we could, squeezing out an astonishing amount of starchy liquid. “I’ve probably made them a hundred times in my life,” Rogers said, See LATKES, Page D2

Ellie Krieger’s most recent cookbook is “Weeknight Wonders: Delicious Healthy Dinners in 30 Minutes or Less” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013). She blogs and offers a weekly newsletter at www. elliekrieger.com.
1 to 11⁄4 pounds russet potatoes (about 2 large
potatoes) 1 small onion, peeled 1 ⁄4 cup matzo meal or allpurpose flour (see note) 1 teaspoon baking powder 3 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 large egg, lightly beaten Oil for frying Line a large bowl with a clean linen or cotton dish towel. Peel and grate the potatoes and place them in the towel. Grate the onion and add it to the potatoes. Roll
up the towel lengthwise so the potatoes are enclosed. Twist the ends and wring out as much liquid as you can. Discard the liquid and dry the bowl. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper together in the large bowl, then whisk in the egg. Stir in the potato-onion mixture and mix well. Pour 1⁄2 inch of oil into a heavy skillet and preheat over medium heat. Don’t allow it to smoke. Use your hands to form potato patties about 21⁄2 inches across
and 1⁄3 inch thick. Place in the oil and cook until the edges are brown, about 3 to 4 minutes, then turn the latkes and cook the other side several minutes longer. Remove to drain on paper towels and serve hot, topped with your choice of toppings. Toppings: Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, applesauce, smoked salmon or caviar Note: While it’s traditional to use matzo meal, it’s OK to use all-purpose flour instead. Makes about 10 latkes.
lemon juice, coriander seeds, garlic, curry powder, a sprig of oregano, paprika, cumin and a teaspoon salt in a spice grinder or blender. Give it a whirl, then grind in copious amounts of black pepper. Put onions and chicken into a plastic bag, pour in marinade and squish it all around so onions and chicken are thoroughly coated. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Sprinkle with more salt and
pepper. Slick a heavy pan or wok with 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, and cook onions and chicken for about 5 minutes, tossing every minute or so. It will splutter a bit, and it will smell so delicious you’ll be snatching pieces from the pan. Serve over white rice. If you like, top with a righteous red hot sauce, or sauce made from equal parts mayonnaise and Greek yogurt, and seasoned with sugar, salt, pepper and a splash of vinegar.

Herb-rubbed pork chops with warm broccoli slaw
The moisture from the vegetables in the skillet, a little chicken broth and some lemon juice softens the caramelized browned bits left by the meat and becomes a flavorful coating for the slaw. Sliced dried apricots (I prefer sweeter Turkish apricots for this dish, as California apricots tend to be more tart) bring out the sweet
undertones of the carrot and broccoli, adding a layer of texture and a fruity flavor that pairs so well with pork. Finally, the pork chops are nestled in the slaw and warmed through to finish cooking and bring the dish together. The result is a satisfying meal that has an Old World sensibility, but with a fresh twist.
batter in the oil. She used her hands to gather about 1 ⁄4 to 1⁄3 cup of the grated potato batter, pat it into a little cake about as wide as her palm, and ease each patty into hot oil in my castiron skillet. Making latkes naturally turns into a party. Since the potatoes turn brown quickly, you have to work fast. And while you can keep latkes hot in the oven,
they’re best right out of the oil, when they’re hot and crisp. So people gather around. In her opinion, Rogers said, “Latkes aren’t do-ahead any more than biscuits are do-ahead.”

the apricots; cook for 1 minute. Add the broth, lemon juice and the remaining 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt and 1⁄4 teaspoon of pepper to the skillet. Once the mixture is bubbling at the edges, return the pork chops to the pan, nestling them in the slaw. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the pork chops have the faintest pink blush in the center (145 degrees on an instant-read thermometer), stirring once or twice, about 3 minutes more.

Combine the sage, rosemary, garlic powder and 1⁄4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub this herb mixture on both sides of the pork chops; let them sit (at room temperature, about 10 minutes) while you prep the remaining ingredients. Use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to trim away the broccoli stems’ tough outer layer as well as 1⁄4 inch from the bottom of each stem. (The yield should be about 12 ounces of tender broccoli stems.) Shred them on the large-holed side of a box grater or in a food processor fitted with a shredding disk. Shred the carrots the same way. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, deep skillet over mediumhigh heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the chops; cook until well browned on both sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side; they will not be cooked through. Transfer them to a plate. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the same skillet. Reduce the heat to medium; add the onion and cook for 1 minute, stirring and scraping up any browned bits, then stir in the shredded broccoli and carrot and

his is one of those recipes you’ll be grateful to have up your sleeve on a busy weeknight, not only because of its practical virtues — it is made in one skillet in less than a half-hour, and it provides a way to use those oftendiscarded broccoli stalks — but also because of the pure pleasure it brings to the table. First, the boneless pork chops (which are a lean loin cut) are rubbed with herbs, garlic, salt and pepper. Once browned in olive oil, they are removed from the skillet to make way for the broccoli slaw’s quick saute. There’s a tasty, tender core in those broccoli stalks, revealed by the fast work of a vegetable peeler. For a shortcut, you could skip the step of shredding the broccoli and carrot and use a bag of broccoli slaw mix instead.

Mrs. Moritz’ 3rd Grade Class Penny McThrifty has been saving her money for a couple of years. Between birthday gifts and earning money on her own, she’s doing pretty good. She’s made a lot of deposits, and some withdrawals. The money that is in her account is called a balance.
It’s important to save at least some of your money instead of spending it all. But where’s the best place to save it?
Fill in the missing numbers in the balance column to discover how much is in Penny’s account.

GRANDPARENTING | Tom and Dee Hardie with Key Kidder
Everett couple considers moving to Florida Dear Grandparenting: My wife and I have lived in the state of Washington all of our lives. It is really all we know. Our friends are here. Our memories are here. We have never given one minute of thought about leaving until the last few months. Now we talk about it constantly. This all started when we returned from visiting our daughter. She is our only child. She is married and lives in Florida. We have three grandchildren who we enjoy tremendously. They are 14, 17 and 20. We didn’t realize how much we enjoyed being with the grandkids until we returned. Something came over us. As soon as we got home my wife began to call them and email them and use that twoway video thing on her computer where she can see and talk to the grandkids at the same time. I will admit I like the weather in Florida too. But if we do move, the grandkids are the main attraction. Are we crazy to pick up and go? — Blair Williams, Everett
Dear Blair: If you’re crazy, you have plenty of company. Hard data is hard to come by, but abundant anecdotal evidence and plain common sense indicates that a significant segment of America’s 70 million grandparents will sooner or later pack up and pick up to be near their grandchildren. When seniors do decide to move, family proximity is a leading motivator. When grandparents get that bee in their bonnet, no distance is too far. Closeness counts for a whole lot more than many imagine. According to a study by Sara Moorman from Boston College’s Institute on Aging, grandparents and adult grandchildren who have a close bond enjoy improved mental health. “The greater emotional support grandparents and adult grandchildren received from each other, the better their psychological health,” said Moorman. When grandparents and grandchildren become real resources to each other by performing chores, giving advice or financial help or providing transportation,

Woman won’t wear lingerie despite boyfriend’s request Dear Abby: I have dated a lot of women over the years — including actresses, beauty contest winners and models. Every one of them, except my current live-in, “Amanda,” would dress up in lingerie when I asked them to. Amanda adamantly refuses. She says if I love her, I should be turned on whether she’s nude or wearing lingerie. Part of the problem is she’s not in the best shape, and the lingerie would hide that. I have tried bargaining with her, but she won’t agree. She doesn’t understand why I’m not chasing her around all the time. I have tried to explain that I don’t find a tummy sexy. Advice? — Hal In New York Dear Hal: I’d love to know what attracted you to Amanda in the first place, since your “type” seems to have always been women who are arm candy. Sadly, taut bodies don’t always last. At some point, age, pregnancies and the pull of gravity can cause them to sag. By the way, with the exception of pregnancy, this can affect men as well as women. Bottom line: If physical perfection is what you need to feel aroused, then you and Amanda may be a mismatch because NOBODY’S perfect. Dear Abby: I have a coping skill when I get upset about something or someone at work. I “vent” in a personal email to myself and send it to my home email address. Well, today I got upset with my office buddy, so I sent myself an email. But I mistakenly sent it to her and it hurt her feelings. I never meant for her or anyone else to read it. The technique keeps me from staying angry at work. As soon as I realized what I had done, I sent her an apology RIP HAYWIRE

DEAR ABBY and we talked about it afterward. I feel terrible about hurting her, because she is a sweet person, and it was a complete misunderstanding on my part. She told me she accepted my apology. What else can I do for her, or should I just learn my lesson? — Flubbed It In Florida Dear Flubbed: I think your apology was enough. However, because it hasn’t assuaged your guilt, consider asking if you can treat her to lunch. And in the future, look twice before hitting “send.” Better yet, go “old school” and write your thoughts in a notebook you keep in your purse. Dear Abby: I am scheduled to attend a wedding later this month. Well, I just found out the groom’s uncle is not a real minister, and that he purchased his minister’s license online. I think it is very disrespectful to people who take religion seriously, and to real ministers who spend years studying in order to be ordained. To have a fake minister preside makes the whole ceremony a fraud. If I say anything, I know it will cause hurt feelings, so I’m keeping my mouth shut. Am I an old fuddy-duddy? — Silent In Springfield, Ill. Dear Silent: You are entitled to your feelings, but if this uncle is the person the happy couple wants to officiate, you shouldn’t judge.

Documentary collects all the former CIA chiefs By David Bauder Associated Press
NEW YORK — After making a documentary about presidential chiefs of staff two years ago, filmmaker Jules Naudet joked about focusing on another important government job where it would seem next to impossible to get interview subjects to speak candidly, if at all. His new subject? Former directors of the Central Intelligence Agency. Much to the surprise of Naudet and fellow producers, former CIA chiefs and other key officials agreed to participate. At a time the agency’s work seems more important than ever, they talk bluntly about terror threats, drone strikes, secret interrogation sites and

torture for a documentary that premieres on Showtime on Saturday at 9 p.m. The opening of “The Spymasters: CIA in the Crosshairs” illustrates the stakes involved. Former Obama administration director Leon Panetta describes wrestling with decision to order a drone strike on a man suspected of planning the deaths of two CIA agents in an attack dramatized in the movie “Zero
Dark Thirty.” He knew that women and children would also die if the drone hit its mark. The segment humanizes the job from the start. “These are life and death decisions that they have on their hands. I think that gets lost in what people think the CIA is,” said Susan Zirinsky, CBS News veteran and executive producer. Panetta freely acknowledges a drone program that the CIA doesn’t officially talk about. During the film, some former CIA officials debate the morality and effectiveness of drone killings, while others won’t touch the subject. Former acting director Michael Morell, now a CBS analyst, expresses surprise on camera to learn that others discussed signature strikes. “These are grown-ups,”
said Chris Whipple, who interviews each of the directors on camera. “No one tells Bob Gates and Leon Panetta what they can say, which is not to say that they are going to be cavalier.” Former President George H.W. Bush, a CIA director in the Ford administration, was the first interview, and his participation seemed to encourage others. George Tenet was the last to agree. He’s arguably the most important, since his tenure (1997-2004) encompassed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist strikes, claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and opening of secret sites to interrogate suspected terrorists. “I think he came for history,” Whipple said.
How an angry comic with a coke habit became podcast giant Geoff Edgers The Washington Post
Marc Maron has both snorted coke with Sam Kinison and interviewed the president of the United States in his garage. Maron, 52, recounts the bizarre moment this year when President Barack Obama’s motorcade rolled up his narrow street in the Highland Park section of Los Angeles to tape Episode No. 613 of “WTF,” the shorthand for a phrase that can’t be printed here. The president boosted Maron’s profile — and
Obama made headlines by dropping the n-word during a discussion of race — but the appearance was no fluke. Since 2009, “WTF” has become a must listen, downloaded by millions and inspiring a loosely autobiographical television series on IFC, a daring memoir and a stand-up revival for Maron. His first comedy special in 20 years, “More Later,” airs on Epix on Dec. 4. In this age of the soul-baring revelation, Marc Maron is the closest thing the Snapchat generation has to a Barbara Walters. She
made her subjects cry. He makes them confess — and it never feels cheap. “There’s something paradoxical about Maron,” says “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross, a loyal “WTF” listener and recent interviewee. “His TV and onstage persona is kind of cranky, angry. Yet he’s so intuitive and empathetic as an interviewer. He emotionally commits when he’s doing an interview, and I think that’s one of the reasons why people, like me, feel comfortable confiding in him.” Over 655 podcasts, two
posted each week, “WTF” has piled up countless, must-listen moments. There was Robin Williams, four years before his suicide, talking about his struggles with alcohol and depression. A two-parter with Louis C.K. found the estranged friends working through the breakdown in their relationship. “I’m definitely content,” said Maron, “but like I still have a feeling of ‘What’s the point?’ The point of the work is clear. But what’s the point of life sometimes?” He pauses. “Happy? I am kind of.”
