2015 a record warm year Above normal temperatures created the largest wildfire season in state history, during which 3 firefighters died. By Eric Stevick Herald Writer
EVERETT — It might not seem like it now with stubborn early morning frost on windshields but 2015 was a pretty
toasty year. At least that’s what the numbers show. “For the second year in a row, it was a record warm year,” the National Weather Service in Seattle reported.
Several weather service meteorologists recently compiled their observations into a fivepage year-end retrospective. The average temperature at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport was 55.8 degrees, exceeding the previous record of 55 from 2014. At 63.5 degrees, the average high temperature also was
record-setting, one degree above the previous average highs set in 2014 and 1992. Four months — February, March, June and July — set records for the warmest months. Four others — January, May, August and October — were See 2015, back page, this section

EVERETT — Neighbors used ladders to rescue people from the upper stories of a burning apartment building in south Everett on Thursday night. Within 10 minutes of the first 911 call, people were helping each other escape, leaving the doors to their homes open as they fled walls of flames. Not everyone made it out. One person was killed, an adult. The person’s age and gender were still undetermined as of Friday morning, said Eric Hicks, the

The three-alarm fire at the Bluffs apartments at 2 West Casino Road is believed to be the largest blaze in Everett in more than three years. A dozen people were hospitalized, including children. A 57-year-old woman had critical injuries, and three others were seriously hurt, Hicks said. In all, 15 people received medical treatment Thursday night for smoke inhalation, burns or

injuries received while jumping or being dropped from upperstory windows, Hicks said. The ages of those injured ranged from 5 to 60. Crews on Friday had not received an update on the victims’ conditions, he said. Witnesses reported seeing people jumping from the second and third floors, and said a man ran up with a ladder he apparently pulled from the rack on his work van. Multiple ladders that had been used by neighbors could be seen about the property Friday. There were few onlookers on

12 hospitalized, more than 100 displaced by fatal fire

A firefighter walks along the burned out second floor of an apartment complex at 2 West Casino Road in Everett on Friday. One person was killed and more than 100 residents have been displaced by the Thursday evening fire.
LAKE STEVENS — A gravel mine off Highway 92 has been given permission to expand the size and scope of its operations despite objections and a formal appeal from neighbors. Snohomish County Hearing Examiner Peter Camp determined that neighbors had not provided enough evidence to deny a conditional use permit for the ThomCo gravel pit, owned by Pacific Premier Properties LLC and also known as the 44th Street Sand and Gravel Mine. The revised permit allows for increasing the size of the mining area, building an aggregate washing plant and processing or recycling asphalt, concrete, topsoil and brush. The 45-acre property the mine sits on is located at 13600 44th St. NE, near the intersection of Highway 92 and 44th Street. Neighbors’ concerns with the proposed expansion centered on traffic, noise, dust, water supply and environmental damage. County planners concluded that, by state standards, additional operations at the mine would not have a significant effect on the environment. A group of families appealed that conclusion. Camp upheld the planners’ findings. He released his decision to approve the mine’s revised permit and deny the neighbors’ appeal Wednesday. An updated permit is meant to put the mine back in compliance with county code. The company has been the subject of a code violation case since 2009, according to county records. Code enforcement officers found that the mine was processing materials without approval and had expanded beyond the area allowed under its permit. The manager and owners were told they needed to seek an updated permit or stop the unauthorized activities. They applied for a permit in 2010 and were granted at least a dozen extensions on the code enforcement case while the application was pending.

Natalie Cole, master of past and present styles, dies at 65 By Sandy Cohen and Mesfin Fekadu Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Natalie Cole, the daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole, who carved out her own success with R&B hits like “Our Love” and “This Will Be” before triumphantly intertwining their legacies to make his “Unforgettable” their signature hit through technological wizardry, has died. She was 65. While Cole was a Grammy winner in her own right, she had her greatest success in 1991 when she re-recorded her father’s classic hits — with him on the track — for the album “Unforgettable ... With Love.” It became a multiplatinum smash and garnered her multiple Grammy Awards, including album of the year. Cole died Thursday evening at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles due to complications from ongoing health issues, her family said in a statement. “Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived ... with dignity, strength and honor. Our beloved Mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever,” read the statement from her son Robert Yancy and sisters Timolin and
Natalie Cole died Thursday evening in Los Angeles. She was 65.
Casey Cole. “I had to hold back the tears. I know how hard she fought,” said Aretha Franklin in a statement. “She fought for so long. She was one of the greatest singers of our time.” Other celebrities honored Cole on social media. In a tweet, actress Marlee Matlin called Cole a lovely songbird and a great actress, writing “she is now singing in heaven.” Patti LaBelle tweeted, “She will be truly missed but her light will shine forever!” Natalie Cole had battled drug problems and hepatitis that forced her to undergo a kidney transplant in May 2009. Cole’s older sister, Carol “Cookie” Cole, died the day she received the transplant. Their brother, Nat Kelly Cole, died in 1995. Natalie Cole was inspired by her dad at an
early age and auditioned to sing with him when she was just 11 years old. She was 15 when he died of lung cancer, in 1965. She began as an R&B singer but later gravitated toward the smooth pop and jazz standards that her father loved. Cole’s greatest success came with her 1991 album, “Unforgettable ... With Love,” which paid tribute to her father with reworked versions of some of his best-known songs, including “That Sunday That Summer,” ‘’Too Young” and “Mona Lisa.” Her voice was spliced with her dad’s in the title cut, offering a delicate duet a quarter-century after his death. The album sold some 14 million copies and won six Grammys, including album of the year as well record and song of the year for the title track duet. While making the album, Cole told The Associated Press in 1991, she had to “throw out every R&B lick that I had ever learned and every pop trick I had ever learned. With him, the music was in the background and the voice was in the front.” “I didn’t shed really any real tears until the album was over,” Cole said. “Then I cried a whole lot. When we started the project it was a way of reconnecting
with my dad. Then when we did the last song, I had to say goodbye again.” She was also nominated for an Emmy award in 1992 for a televised performance of her father’s songs. “That was really my thank you,” she told People magazine in 2006. “I owed that to him.” Another father-daughter duet, “When I Fall in Love,” won a 1996 Grammy for best pop collaboration with vocals, and a follow-up album, “Still Unforgettable,” won for best traditional pop vocal album of 2008. Cole made her recording debut in 1975 with “Inseparable.” The music industry welcomed her with two Grammy awards in 1976 — one for best new artist and one for best female R&B vocal performance for her buoyant hit “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love).” She also worked as an actress, with appearances on TV’s “Touched by an Angel” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” But she was happiest touring and performing live. “I still love recording and still love the stage,” she said on her website in 2008, “but like my dad, I have the most fun when I am in front of that glorious orchestra or that kick-butt big band.” Cole was born in 1950 to Nat “King” Cole and his wife, Maria Ellington
Cole, a onetime vocalist with Duke Ellington who was no relation to the great bandleader. Her father was already a recording star, and he rose to greater heights in the 1950s and early ‘60s. He toured worldwide, and in 1956 he became the first black entertainer to host a national TV variety show, though poor ratings and lack of sponsors killed it off the following year. He also appeared in a few movies and spoke out in favor of civil rights. Natalie Cole grew up in Los Angeles’ posh Hancock Park neighborhood, where her parents had settled in 1948 despite animosity from some white residents about having the black singer as a neighbor. When told by residents who said they didn’t want “undesirable people” in the area, the singer said, “Neither do I, and if I see (any), I’ll be the first to complain.” The family eventually included five children. Natalie Cole started singing seriously in college, performing in small clubs. But in her 2000 autobiography, “Angel on My Shoulder,” Cole discussed how she had battled heroin, crack cocaine and alcohol addiction for many years. She spent six months in rehab in 1983. When she announced in 2008 that she had been
diagnosed with hepatitis C, a liver disease spread through contact with infected blood, she blamed her past intravenous drug use. She criticized the Recording Academy for giving five Grammys to drug user Amy Winehouse in 2008. “I’m an ex-drug addict and I don’t take that kind of stuff lightly,” Cole explained at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Hepatitis C “stayed in my body for 25 years and it could still happen to this young woman or other addicts who are fooling around with drugs, especially needles.” Cole received chemotherapy to treat the hepatitis and “within four months, I had kidney failure,” she told CNN’s Larry King in 2009. She needed dialysis three times a week until she received a donor kidney on May 18, 2009. The organ procurement agency One Legacy facilitated the donation from a family that had requested that their donor’s organ go to Cole if it was a match. Cole toured through much of her illness, often receiving dialysis at hospitals around the globe. “I think that I am a walking testimony to you can have scars,” she told People magazine. “You can go through turbulent times and still have victory in your life.”
Ex-Rep. Mike Oxley dies; helped create post-Enron law Associated Press TOLEDO, Ohio — Former U.S. Rep. Mike Oxley, who helped write landmark anti-fraud legislation following a wave of corporate scandals that brought down Enron Corp. and WorldCom Inc., died Friday at age 71. Oxley died in his sleep in McLean, Virginia, after
suffering from non-small cell lung cancer, a type of lung cancer seen in nonsmokers, said his wife, Patricia Oxley. Mike Oxley was chairman of the Lung Cancer Alliance board of directors. The Ohio Republican left Congress in 2007 after 25 years in the House, where he devoted most of his time to issues involving

The law reshaped corporate oversight after accounting scandals in 2001-2002 at Enron, WorldCom and other major corporations exposed inadequate internal controls and auditors who had become too cozy with
the companies whose books they examined. Those corporate scandals and others wiped out retirement accounts, cost investors billions and pushed people out of work. Small companies later complained that the law Oxley helped create brought added costs to comply with requirements for reports on their internal financial controls.

Oxley said the reports of fundraising influencing policy were ludicrous. Oxley, a former FBI agent, advocated giving police greater ability to unscramble encrypted computer files. He was the chief House sponsor of legislation requiring operators of commercial websites to restrict young people’s access to sexually explicit material. He was an FBI agent for three years before he was elected to the Ohio House in 1972. He won a special election to the U.S. House in 1981 by 341 votes to fill a vacancy caused by the death of GOP Rep. Tennyson Guyer. Oxley rarely faced a close election after that, especially since his district in rural northwest Ohio was one of the state’s most solidly Republican seats and included his hometown of Findlay. Following his retirement, Oxley became a lobbyist in the financial sector. He was also a member of the University of Findlay board of trustees and active with Miami University of Ohio, his alma mater. He is survived by his wife, a son and a grandson.

Fleet of county’s police cars evolving The old “Crown Vics” are giving way to Ford Explorers. By Rikki King Herald Writer
EVERETT — Buying a car is stressful. Try buying a few dozen police cars. Nearly every law
enforcement agency in Snohomish County has faced that decision since 2011, when the Ford Crown Victoria Police Intercepter was discontinued. For decades, the “Crown Vic” dominated the market for squad
cars. Now many local agencies are switching to the Ford Police Interceptor Utility — essentially a souped-up Ford Explorer. That group includes the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, the Washington State Patrol and the police departments in Arlington, Edmonds, Everett, Monroe and Mukilteo. Some
departments, including Lake Stevens, have selected other models for patrol, but use the Ford sport utility vehicle for supervisors. The Everett Police Department is shedding Crown Vics as they age out of the fleet. “We purchased our last Crown Victorias in 2010,” said Bob Carlson, who oversees vehicle
maintenance for the city. The Everett department took a unique approach in finding a replacement. In 2012, they purchased three kinds of patrol vehicles on the market and tested them on the road. They tried to get each of Everett’s 200 police See FLEET, Page A4
School levies on Lakewood ballot
Maybe baby waited to be first in 2016
Voters will be asked to pay for programs, maintenance and technology. By Kari Bray Herald Writer
Meagan Walker, Cascadia’s executive director of college relations, said at the meeting the process costs about $250,000 for each permit. Ana Karaman, UW Bothell’s vice chancellor for
LAKEWOOD — Voters are being asked to renew one levy and approve a second to help pay for programs, maintenance and technology in the Lakewood School District. A special election is scheduled for Feb. 9 and both measures are on the ballot. They need more than 50 percent of the votes to pass. The larger of the two requests is for educational programs and operations. If approved, that levy would generate about $25.6 million over the next four years, according to district documents. The tax rate would start at $3.18 per $1,000 assessed property value in 2017, which totals about $954 a year on a $300,000 home. The rate is expected to go up to $3.22 per $1,000, or roughly $966 on a $300,000 home, by 2020. Voters in the Lakewood School District last approved an operations levy in 2012. It’s set to expire at the end of 2016. The new levy would pick up where the current one leaves off. Voters currently pay $3.27 per $1,000 assessed property value on the operations levy, but that is estimated to drop to $3.18 in 2016, meaning there would be no change expected from the 2016 to 2017 rate if the levy were renewed. Local dollars support about a quarter of the school district’s day-to-day operations. The money bridges the gap between how much schools get from state and federal sources and how much it costs to educate students, according to the district. Nearly 70 percent of the money from levies goes toward paying teachers and other staff, providing student services and keeping up with curriculums. Another 16 percent goes to upkeep on schools and the rest of the levy money is for transportation, extracurriculars and technology. Technology also is a focus of the district’s second request to voters. A capital projects and technology levy is on the ballot alongside the operations levy. It would bring in $2.85 million between 2017 and 2020. The tax would expire after 2020, according to the district.

EVERETT — Samantha Arroyo called her husband at work Thursday evening. She was having contractions. The Lake Stevens woman was two days
past her due date. “We made an agreement. If the contractions were five minutes apart for 30 minutes, or her water broke, I’d come home so she didn’t have to labor without me, mainly for my peace of mind,” Marcos Arroyo said.
His wife, pregnant with their second child, had contractions Monday and Tuesday, but they came and went. “She just wasn’t ready,” Samantha Arroyo said. Her husband waited 15 minutes before calling her back

BOTHELL — Neighbors of the University of Washington Bothell and Cascadia College are worried about a proposed change that would end the master building plan for the joint

No comment Journalists have a love/hate relationship with online comments. On the one hand, comment threads can generate interesting discussions asdkg when paired with news stories. They can serve as a town square, where asd;lkgj anyone can contribute to the debate as;dlgjk without a gatekeeper standing in the way. They can even include valuable news tips that lead to further stories. On the other hand, many comment threads can be summed up in three words: “Your a idiot.” When they’re overrun by trolls, Internet comments bring out the absolute

worst in people — deplorable statements, assaults on the English language and vicious personal attacks. A thick skin is a job requirement for reporters, but a built-in place for hecklers would cut down on any job’s appeal. And for readers … well, we’re never quite sure what comments do for readers. Even if only a handful of people participate, many more enjoy reading through them. Lurking can be fun, and part of the website’s mission is to entertain. Many websites have given up on comments altogether, and The Herald is evaluating what to do long-term after putting them on timeout. In our latest
poll at HeraldNet.com, we asked what you think is the best solution. The results were pretty well split. Forty-four percent said it’s better without comments, narrowly edging out the 43 percent who want to bring them back. The remaining 13 percent said to bring them back only if the tone can be improved. I thought this number would be higher, but maybe our voters are just being realistic. Nobody’s really figured out how to do this well, at least not without employing an army of comment monitors. And if you think any newspaper wants to do that, “your a idiot.”

She clapped her hands and smiled at the news. Lewis is convinced that the little girl waited for her grandparents to get into town before making her entrance. She is their ninth grandchild. There were 4,516 babies delivered at the hospital in 2015. The last was born at 11:39 p.m. Thursday, nurses said. The Arroyos joked that they were hoping their daughter would have been born before midnight so they could claim her on their 2015 taxes. “She was trying,” her mom said. She weighed in at 8 pounds 7 ounces and is 19.75 inches long. She was bundled up and cradled in her mom’s arms Friday morning when she and her sister met for the first time. “Can I touch her?” Virginia asked. The little girl in pigtails and pink stroked her sister’s tiny hands. She looks like you, Samantha Arroyo told her
oldest. Trying out the big sister role, Virginia asked if the baby was hungry. Maybe she would like some of her dried mangoes slices. “Remember she doesn’t eat what you do yet,” her mom said. The Arroyos hoped to bring their new daughter home Saturday. There was one matter that still required their attention. “She needs to be named before we leave,” Samantha Arroyo said. As of Friday afternoon she and her husband hadn’t settled on what to call their beautiful daughter. It hadn’t been for lack of trying. During the pregnancy Marcos Arroyo pored over the Social Security database listing names dating back to the 1800s. Relatives chimed in with suggestions. Samantha Arroyo had tried out names she’d read in books. “She can’t be named after a dragon,” her husband said. Dad doesn’t want anything too trendy or popular. It needs to compliment her two middle names. How does it translate

Police pursuit ends in crash; woman, 20, held
EDMONDS — A woman crashed down an embankment Friday morning as she tried to outrun police. Edmonds police were investigating whether the Honda she was driving was stolen. The incident happened about 8:45 a.m. near 216th Street SW and Highway 99, where a sergeant pulled the woman over. As the officer approached the Honda the suspect drove off, Edmonds police Sgt. Josh McClure said. A short distance away the woman, 20, lost control of the car and it landed in a deep ditch. She tried to get out of Honda but her escape efforts were thwarted
as the car started sinking deeper into the muck and water in the ditch. She was arrested and taken to Swedish Edmonds as a precaution. Edmonds officers learned that she’d been stopped in Shoreline about two hours earlier and given a ticket. At the time she had outstanding warrants out of Edmonds, McClure said. It wasn’t clear Friday why she wasn’t taken into custody in Shoreline. In a press release Edmonds police said the warrants were “not extraditable.” That would indicate that police officers wouldn’t travel outside Edmonds to take her into custody on the city warrants. The woman was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of attempting to elude a police vehicle. The case remains
Seattle: Burn bans Burn bans have been called in Snohomish and Pierce counties until air quality improves. The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency has issued a stage two burn ban for Greater Pierce County, and a stage one burn ban for Snohomish County and Darrington, effective 1 p.m. Friday. Clear, cold, and calm weather conditions are expected to continue into Sunday, and unhealthy air is expected to linger. During a stage one burn ban, burning is allowed in pellet stoves and EPA certified wood stoves and inserts. In a stage two burn ban, all wood burning is prohibited. The Pierce County ban is for some, but not all, residents of the
county. For more information, go to www.pscleanair.org/burnban.
Snowshoer found dead Search and rescue officials near Seattle say they’ve found the body of a snowshoer who has been identified as a locally wellknown philanthropic leader and software entrepreneur. A statement from the King County Sheriff’s Office says friends called authorities Thursday evening after Doug Walker, 64, didn’t return to a trailhead near Granite Mountain, which is about 45 miles east of Seattle. About 60 search and rescue members searched for Walker through the night. The sheriff’s office says his body was found just before 10:30 Friday morning. Authorities say he was found in a debris field and may have been
caught in an avalanche. The Seattle Times reported that Walker served on the board of REI, was a founding member of the Seattle Parks Foundation and had also served on the Wilderness Society’s governing council.
Bremerton: Another suspect arrested Kitsap County authorities say another man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance and robbery of an 89-year-old Silverdale man. KIROTV reported that Arnold Cruz, 47, was arrested Friday morning and booked into the Kitsap County Jail. His arrest is the eighth connected with the disappearance of Robert Archie Hood on Dec. 17.

Fleet: Getting back to the black-and-white tradition From Page A3
officers behind the wheel for feedback, Carlson said. “Then they went back and did a survey for everyone about what they liked on each vehicle, what they didn’t like, and graded them out, and the Ford Utility was the winner, with about a 90 percent preference rate,” he said. Trunk space was a major reason. Officers have to travel with bulky gear such as traffic cones, a fire extinguisher, a shovel and an ax. “The back end of the Utility is a nice big trunk for storage and for carrying the stuff they have to have,” Carlson said. The SUV has a smaller engine
but more horsepower than the Crown Vic, he said. It has more than 200 modifications for police use from the original Ford Explorer. Each runs about $45,000 including after-market additions. Everett police have 50 Crown Vics still in use, and 22 of the SUVs, Carlson said. The city budget calls for the purchase of 10 more SUVs next year. People in town may notice another difference. Everett police have been trading up from their old design of a white car with a blue stripe. Like many departments around the country, they’ve been going back to blackand-white. It’s the first big change in graphics for Everett police cars
in at least 20 years, officer Aaron Snell said. “We wanted to get back to tradition,” he said. “We believe they were more recognizable to the public.” So far, the SUVs are costing Everett about 15 cents less per mile compared to Crown Vics, including maintenance costs, Carlson said. Fuel use is about the same. “The mileage is pretty much even Stephen,” he said. Meanwhile, Lynnwood uses Dodge Chargers for patrol. Mountlake Terrace and Lake Stevens use both Chargers and Ford SUVs, as does the Island County Sheriff’s Office. “It sounds like the plan is to
stick with mostly the Chargers and mix in a few SUVs every once and awhile,” Island County detective Ed Wallace said. Arlington started adding the Ford SUVs in 2015, with more expected to arrive this year, city spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said. Edmonds police prepared for the decision by buying extra Crown Victorias, Sgt. Shane Hawley said. That allowed them time to watch how the choice played out for other departments. Before going with SUVs, they had even talked about removing front passenger seats from some models to create more storage space, he said. Mill Creek has two Ford police
sedans and about a half-dozen SUVs, Cpl. Chris White said. “Because it’s a shared fleet, it was to fit all body types, all equipment,” she said. “The SUVs are much bigger, and we have a lot of equipment that we have to carry around, and it was all-wheel drive because of our terrain. It’s hilly.” Some of the recent changes represent a shift in thinking at the Snohomish and Island county sheriff’s offices and the State Patrol, all of which originally had planned on moving to the Chevrolet Caprice police edition. Reasons cited included room for gear, handling in snow and ice, and maintenance costs. Rikki King: 425-339-3449; email@example.com.
Bothell: ‘A terrible time adjusting to the ugliness of it all’ From Page A3
administration, planning, and finance, said in a statement that there have been six master plan amendments processed so far, with 12 more required to complete planned construction on campus. “At approximately $250,000 per ... amendment, and a six- to eightmonth process, the institutions could save $3 million in public funds and tuition, and eight years in time for planning and permitting future development,” her statement said. Many speakers at the meeting were concerned about possible construction of a residence hall next to their homes in the Sunrise-Valley View neighborhood. Neighbor Janelle Lowen was worried about her property line being just 30 feet from the
planned dormitory, and about the destruction of a grove of trees. “The whole neighborhood will have a terrible time adjusting to the ugliness of it all, plus the much-reduced worth of our homes,” Lowen said. “I’m scared and shocked. I don’t understand the unmitigated rush toward a destruction of trees, fresh air, natural water control, quiet space and healthy Northwest ambience.” The proposed plan and code amendments would change building setbacks for development abutting residential neighborhoods along 182nd Place NE and 183rd Place NE. Under the current code, buildings on the western edge of campus must have a 30-foot landscape buffer, with vegetation between a campus building and a residential property line
for structures under 35 feet in height. The building setback is increased by 30 feet for every 10 feet of additional building height, with a maximum 120-foot setback for a building of 65 feet or more. The proposed request would allow buildings higher than 35 feet to have a graduated step back from the 30-foot buffer. Tammy Urquhart, who lives near campus, made an emotional appeal before a neighbor finished reading her written statement. “I feel that my home and everything that it provides us is in dire jeopardy,” she said. Some council members were sympathetic to the concerns. “If that was my backyard, I’d feel like I was in a fishbowl,” Councilman Andy Rheaume said. “I hope there’s some sort of compromise that we can work
out between the residents and the college to make it a little bit more appetizing instead of having a six-story building in your backyard.” Councilwoman Tris Samberg shared concerns about buffer zones. “I think that we need to make sure that those promises made back when this PUD was originally approved, those promises made, are kept,” she said. A residence hall has been part of the university master plan since it launched its student housing program in 2009 by master leasing nearby apartments. In 2011, the university purchased an adjacent apartment complex to meet housing demands. Founded in 1990, UW Bothell has grown rapidly in recent years. In 2010, enrollment was 2,880 students, but 5,279 are enrolled for 2015-16.
Other proposed changes include an increase in the amount of impervious surface allowed on campus. The 127acre campus is now allowed 35 acres of surface that water can’t soak through — concrete, asphalt and roofs. The campus seeks to increase that to about 48 acres of the land still open for development. Sixty-three acres are protected wetlands. Karaman said the campus will work toward having a low impact on the community. “We care about the local community and neighbors, and will continue to maintain the city approved setbacks, buffers and height restrictions,” her statement said. No decision was made, and the City Council will continue its discussion of the issue Jan. 19. Aaron Kunkler: 425-318-7651; firstname.lastname@example.org.
Levies: Homeowners are also paying off bond for new school From Page A3
The money would cover the costs of upgrading equipment, software, networks, security, training and IT support in schools. The levy dollars also could be used to update district buildings.
The technology levy is expected to cost taxpayers 34 cents per $1,000 assessed property value in 2017 and 2018, then 35 cents in 2019 and 2010. That’s $102 a year and $105 a year, respectively, on a $300,000 home. Homeowners in the Lakewood
School District also are paying off a $66.8 million bond approved in April 2014. That sum is going toward a new high school, with construction set to start in 2016. The bond rate this year is $2.21 per $1,000 assessed value and homeowners would continue to
pay off the bond on top of the levies if they are approved. The Lakewood School District serves about 2,250 students from kindergarten to 12th grade. It is one of seven districts in Snohomish County that have measures on the Feb. 9 special election ballot,
according to the county elections office. The Arlington, Edmonds, Lake Stevens, Mukilteo, Stanwood-Camano and Sultan school districts also have measures on the ballot. Kari Bray: 425-339-3439; email@example.com.

A sign tacked outside a Burns, Oregon, home in mid-December reflects growing community sentiment that outsider militia aren’t welcome.
Case in Oregon sparks anti-government sentiment By Gosia Wozniacka Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. — The father and son of a prominent Oregon ranching family plan to surrender at a California prison next week after a judge ruled they served too little time for setting fires that spread to government lands they leased to graze cattle. Dwight Hammond, 73, and Steven Hammond, 46, said they lit the fires in 2001 and 2006 to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. Cole The two were convicted of the arsons three years ago and served time — the father three months, the son one year. But a judge ruled their terms were too short under federal law and ordered them back to prison for about four years each. The decision has generated controversy in a remote part of the state where the Hammonds are well-known for their generosity and community contributions. It’s also playing into a long-simmering conflict between ranchers and the U.S. government over the use of federal land for cattle grazing. In particular, the Hammonds’ new sentences touched a nerve with far right groups who repudiate federal authority. The son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a standoff with the government over grazing rights, is organizing opposition. In 2014, after the Bureau of Land Management sought to remove Bundy’s cattle from public rangeland, armed militiamen confronted federal officials. Bundy stopped paying grazing fees over 20 years ago and owes more than $1 million. This month, his son

Neighbors say the mine’s history of being out of compliance with its permit is a problem. However, the code violation was not something Camp considered. “While granting the requested conditional use permit would cure the code violation by regularizing the operation, the conditional use permit request stands or falls on its own merits and the code enforcement action is immaterial,” he wrote. Public hearings were held in November and December. Neighbors echoed complaints that have been submitted in writing or online to the county over the past five years. They say their houses shake, their properties get covered in dust
Ammon Bundy and a handful of militiamen from other states arrived in Burns, some 60 miles from the Hammond ranch. In an email to supporters, Ammon Bundy criticized the U.S. government for a failed legal process. Federal lawyers prosecuted the Hammonds under an anti-terrorism law that required a five-year minimum sentence, though they have declined to say why. Ammon Bundy wrote that the Hammonds are not terrorists and didn’t commit any crimes. He also shamed the Harney County sheriff for not protecting the Hammonds. The sheriff didn’t respond to calls from The Associated Press. Ammon Bundy and other right-wing leaders have called on armed militia around the country to come support the Hammonds. The groups will hold a rally and protest in town Saturday. “If what is happening to the Hammonds is allowed, it will set a standard of what these powerful people will do to all of us,” Ammon Bundy wrote in an email, referring to the federal government. The Hammonds have not welcomed the Bundys’ help. “Neither Ammon Bundy nor anyone within his group/organization speak for the Hammond Family,” the Hammonds’ lawyer W. Alan Schroeder wrote to Sheriff David Ward. Dwight Hammond said he and his son plan to peacefully report to prison Jan. 4 as ordered by the judge. “We gave our word that’s what we would do, and we intend to act on it,” he told the AP. Prosecutors said the Hammonds’ grazing leases didn’t give them
exclusive use of the land or permission to burn public property. The fire charred just under 140 acres. Though the family doesn’t want confrontation, Dwight Hammond maintained their case isn’t about fires: It’s the climax of the government’s efforts to take their land at a time when saving endangered species has gained in importance. Dwight Hammond said he and his own father bought the ranch in 1964; the purchase price included several federal grazing allotments — the rights to lease public land for cattle grazing. But as the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge came to surround the Hammonds’ property, the rancher said, the family had to stave off pressure from the federal government to sell the ranch. Over the years, the government chipped away at their grazing allotments, taking some and increasing fees on others, Dwight Hammond said. New federal rules made it harder to renew permits. After father and son were convicted of the arsons, the government declined to renew their grazing permit. The family is appealing that decision. “We paid hard dollars over fifty years ago for the right to graze. It isn’t right for them to take it away from us,” Dwight Hammond said, adding they’ve had to rent pastures from other ranchers to keep their cows fed. An attorney for the ranchers, Kendra Mathews, declined to discuss the case. The U.S. attorney’s office also wouldn’t comment. But in an opinion piece published this month in the Burns Times Herald, Oregon’s U.S. attorney, Bill Williams, said the Hammonds received a fair trial and lawful sentences.
and some local wells have gone dry. ThomCo’s attorneys argued that neighbors were relying on opinions and stories rather than any firm evidence that the mine has harmed the area. Fear of development or frustration with a business is not a weighty enough reason to deny a permit, they said. The owners of the company have addressed neighbors’ concerns in their plans, according to Camp’s decision. Studies concluded that noise from new equipment could be managed with buffers and dust could be controlled by moving equipment farther from property lines and using a water truck and a crusher with sprayers to dampen the dirt. Though some wells in the area have dropped or dried up, it’s likely because of a falling water table and there wasn’t enough
evidence to prove the mine contributed to well failures, Camp wrote. Traffic and slope stability also were studied, and experts concluded that the expanded operations wouldn’t cause substantial problems. There is a list of conditions for the company to keep the updated permit. They include: only recycling plant material from the mine property; no burying or processing metal, lumber or garbage on site; no burying concrete or asphalt on the property; and keeping hours of operation limited to 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Neighbors have until Jan. 11 to decide whether they want to request that Camp reconsider his decision, or until Jan. 13 to file an appeal before the Snohomish County Council.

New year, little consensus New laws in 2016 show states are diverging on guns, voting. By Geoff Mulvihill Associated Press
TRENTON, N.J. — Laws taking effect at the start of the new year show states diverging on some hot-button issues. Restrictions on carrying guns eased in Texas, for example, but got tighter in California. It is easier to register to vote in Oregon, but there is another step to take at the polls in North Carolina. The opposing directions in the states reflect a nation with increasingly polarized politics. In the debate over gun control, both sides say their arguments are strengthened by a string of mass shootings this year. That includes the December attack at a county health department gathering in San Bernardino, California, when a couple who investigators say pledged allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State group killed 14 people. Everytown for Gun Safety, a group backed by billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is seeking to be a counterweight to the National Rifle Association’s lobbying of state lawmakers. Both groups are expected to be active in legislatures in the coming year. Whether to raise the minimum wage has become another hot topic in states and cities, with the issue getting no traction in the Republican-led Congress. New voting laws, meanwhile, could help shape the outcomes in state and federal elections in the coming year. Democrats and others who want to boost voter participation have been pushing to expand access to the polls, while conservatives have pushed for measures aimed at preventing election fraud. Each side says the other is using legislation to help their favored party in elections. A look at some of the more notable laws taking effect in January:
Guns Texas, the second-most populous state, joins 44 other states in allowing at least some firearm owners to carry handguns openly in public places. Under the Texas law, guns can be carried by those with licenses and only in holsters. Meanwhile, California, the most populous state, has multiple new laws on gun control. One tightens a ban on firearms in and around schools. Under the new law, the prohibition applies even to most people who are allowed to carry concealed weapons generally. Another allows people to request that a judge order weapons be taken away from relatives who are believed to pose a threat.
Voting California and Oregon become the first states that automatically register eligible voters when they obtain or renew their driver’s licenses. Critics of the measures — mostly Republicans — say that could lead to voter fraud and is part of a plan to register more voters who are likely to be Democrats. They say voters should register voluntarily. In both states, people are able to opt out of being registered. Similar measures have been proposed in other states but never adopted. This year, Republican Gov. Chris Christie vetoed the concept in New Jersey. In North Carolina, a voter identification law passed in 2013 that requires people to show a photo ID takes effect. An amendment adopted this year allows voters who have trouble obtaining the required ID to vote anyway. That provision keeps North Carolina from joining eight states in which a

Texas, the second-most populous state, is joining 44 other states in allowing at least some firearm owners to carry handguns openly in public places. Under the Texas law, guns can be carried by those with licenses and only in holsters.
photo ID is strictly required. There are still legal challenges over the law, and opponents want a judge to delay implementation. In most states, voters are asked to show some kind of identification.
Public health Hawaii becomes the first state to raise its minimum age, from 18 to 21, to buy or use cigarettes or e-cigarettes. It’s a move some local governments have made before, but never a state. California joins West Virginia and Mississippi as the only states without a personalbelief exemption for parents who do not want to vaccinate their children. Children whose parents refuse to have them immunized against several diseases are not allowed to enroll in public or private school and instead have to be homeschooled. There is an exemption for children with serious health problems.
Minimum wage The minimum wage rises in many cities and states with the new year. Some of the wage increases are coming under laws passed years ago that phased in the increases over a period of years. Some are automatic increases tied to the cost of living. Fast-food workers in New York state receive their first pay bump under a new law that eventually will push their minimum wage to $15. The full amount will kick in at the end of 2018 in New York City and 2021 in the rest of the state. The federal government has not touched the minimum wage since it was increased to $7.25 effective in 2009. Labor groups and workers keep pushing for higher raises while many business groups say raises could come at the expense of jobs. But with the federal rate unchanging, more state and local governments — particularly in the West and Northeast — are taking action. The wages rise in California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia on Friday. States with automatic annual increases effective Jan. 1 are Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Jersey, Ohio and South Dakota. Some cities, including New Orleans, also have new rates starting Jan. 1. Minimum-wage fast-food workers in Seattle get a bump as part of that city’s phased-in increase to $15 an hour.
Employment issues In California, a new law lets female employees allege pay discrimination based on the wages a company pays other employees who do substantially similar work. Under the

Protesters, including college students, fast-food restaurant employees and other workers, display placards and chant slogans as they march in Boston on April 14. New laws that took effect Friday will raise the minimum wage in several states, including Massachusetts.
Seattle moves closer to $15 Seattle’s minimum wage takes another step toward $15 an hour Friday. Depending on the size of the business and whether the employees have health insurance, workers in Seattle will make as much as $13 an hour minimum in 2016. In November, voters in Tacoma approved a graduated increase to $12 an hour. The statewide minimum in Washington is $9.47 an hour for the second year. It will no longer be the highest in the nation, as Massachusetts and California are both increasing to $10. Alaska’s minimum wage also is higher than Washington’s, going up to $9.75 an hour on Friday. Other states with higher statewide wages include Connecticut and Rhode Island. Associated Press
law, it is up to employers to prove a man’s higher pay is based on factors other than gender. Oregon becomes the fifth state with a paid sick leave mandate for many employers. Some cities in traffic-congested urban areas are trying to ease the burdens of commuting. Employers with at least 20 workers in Washington, D.C., and New York City are required to offer commuter benefits such as tax-free mass transit subsidies to their workers. San Francisco already has a similar ordinance. In Missouri, a new law links the duration of jobless benefits to the state’s unemployment rate. When fewer people are out of work, those claiming the benefits will be cut off sooner. The maximum length of the benefits will be reduced from the current 20 weeks — already among the shorter periods in the nation — to 13. Only North Carolina, which has a similar sliding scale, has a shorter period: 12 weeks.
Abortion Physicians in North Carolina are required to provide the state with ultrasound images of fetuses and other data related to abortions performed after the 16th week of pregnancy. For pregnancies terminated after the 20th week, doctors must explain to the state Department of Health and Human Services how continuing the pregnancy would have threatened the life and health of the mother. Some lawmakers who favor abortion rights say the state should not have this medical data.
Taxes Taxes have gone up in some places and dropping in others. Income tax rates dropped slightly in Oklahoma, where state revenues have fallen sharply, and Massachusetts. In North Carolina, the tax on gasoline dropped by a penny a gallon to 35 cents. The sales tax on boats will drop in New Jersey as of Feb. 1. Taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products rose in Minnesota, as will hotel taxes in Hawaii.
Immigrant driver’s licenses Two more states allow people who are in the United States illegally to be licensed to drive. Delaware’s law took effect Sunday and Hawaii’s is in effect in the new year. Ten states and the District of Columbia already have similar provisions.
Pets Illinois made it a misdemeanor to leave pets outside during extreme weather. Missouri, in a crackdown on the state’s commercial “puppy mills,” required dog breeders to provide more space for their animals and barred them from using wire-strand flooring in dog kennels. Tennessee gave approval this year to the first statewide animal abuse registry. The law, which takes effect Jan. 1, requires the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to post to its website a list of persons convicted on or after that date of aggravated animal cruelty, felony animal fighting, or bestiality and related offenses.
ACROSS THE U.S.
Cleanup begins after flooding in Missouri ST. LOUIS — The worst of the dangerous, deadly winter flood is over in the St. Louis area, leaving residents of several water-logged communities to spend the first day of 2016 assessing damage, cleaning up and figuring out how to bounce back — or in some cases, where to live. Farther south, things were getting worse: Record and near-record crest predictions of the Mississippi River and levee breaks threatened homes in rural southern Missouri and Illinois. Two more levees succumbed Friday, bringing to at least 11 the number of levee failures. The flood, fueled by more than 10 inches of rain over a three-day period that began last weekend, is blamed for 22 deaths. Searchers were still looking for five missing people — two teenagers in Illinois, two men in Missouri and a country music singer in Oklahoma. On Friday, water from the Mississippi, Meremec and Missouri rivers was largely receding in the St. Louis area. Two major highways — Interstate 44 and Interstate 55 — reopened south of St. Louis, meaning commuters who return to work next week won’t have hourslong detours.
Ohio: Prosecutor under fire Protesters upset by a decision not to indict two white police officers in the shooting death of Tamir Rice, a 12-yearold black boy who had a pellet gun, marched to the home of the prosecutor Friday and repeated calls for him to resign. More than 100 people stood outside the home of Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty during the peaceful protest, which also included demands for a federal investigation into the shooting. A march leader told protesters not to vandalize McGinty’s home, which is in a neighborhood on the west side of Cleveland. Police officers accompanied the marchers and stood in McGinty’s driveway but did not intervene. The protesters chanted, “New year, no more!” and “McGinty has got to go!” Through a spokesman, McGinty declined to comment.
Calif.: Condor released Banking into the wind and then gliding out of sight, a male California condor flew back into the wild after a captive breeding program that helped save North America’s largest species of land bird. The 35-year-old bird named AC-4 soared out of his open pen earlier this week at a canyon rim inside the Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge, in central California’s Kern County. He had been one of just 23 condors left in the world in the 1980s. He fathered the first chick born in the program, and sired 30 condor chicks that have been successfully released into the wild.
AROUND THE WORLD Israel: Two shot at bar A gunman opened fire outside a popular bar in the coastal Israeli city of Tel Aviv on Friday afternoon, killing two people and wounding at least three others before fleeing the scene, police said. The motive for the shooting spree, which took place on a busy main street, was not immediately clear, police said. Israeli Channel 10 TV showed CCTV footage of the incident, obtained from a health food shop next to the bar. It shows a man with short hair, glasses and a black bag over his shoulder scooping up some nuts, putting them in a plastic bag, then emptying them back. The footage then shows the man walking toward the entrance of the store, placing his backpack on a shopping cart and taking a gun out of it. He then steps outside and starts shooting, after which he runs away.
India: 2 attackers killed At least four gunmen entered an Indian air force base near the border with Pakistan on Saturday morning and exchanged fire with security forces, leaving two attackers dead, officials said. The gunmen entered the living quarters section of the Pathankot air force base, about 267 miles north of New Delhi, but were not able to penetrate the area with fighter helicopters and other equipment, said air force spokeswoman Rochelle D’Silva. At least two of the attackers were killed and security forces were exchanging fire with the other two, she said. Pathankot is on the highway that connects India’s insurgency wracked Jammu and Kashmir state with the rest of the country. It’s also very close to India’s border with rival Pakistan. Saturday’s attack comes just a week after India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an unannounced visit to Pakistan to meet Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. From Herald news services

Our gadgets will keep getting smarter By Anick Jesdanun and David Hamilton Associated Press
Our cars, our homes, our appliances and even our toys: Things around us are going to keep getting smarter. In 2016, we’ll entrust even more of our lives and their intimate details to machines — not to mention the companies that run them. Are we ready for that? You might, for instance, like the idea of turning on your TV with a spoken command — no more fumbling for the remote! But for that to work, the TV needs to be listening all the time, even when you’re not watching. And even when you’re discussing something extremely personal, or engaged in some other activity to which you’d rather not invite eavesdroppers. How much should you worry? Maybe your TV never records any of your casual conversations. Or maybe its manufacturer is recording all that, but just to find ways to make the TV better at understanding what you want it to do. Or maybe it retains everything it hears for some other hidden purpose. You may never know for sure. At best, you can hope the company keeps its promises on privacy. More important, you have to trust that its computer systems are really secure, or those promises are suddenly worthless. That part is increasingly difficult to guarantee — or believe — as hacking becomes routine. And here’s the chief quandary: Every technological benefit comes with a cost in the form of a threat to privacy. Yet not paying that price has its own cost: an inability to participate in some of society’s greater achievements. Because smart gadgets thrive on data — data about you and your habits, data about what large numbers of people do or say or appear to want in particular situations — it’s difficult not to share pretty much everything with them. Doing otherwise would be like turning off your phone’s location services, which disables many of its most useful features. The consequences aren’t restricted to phones and TVs: ■■ Kids will be able to talk to more toys and get personalized, computer-generated responses. Does the “don’t talk to strangers” rule apply if the stranger is the Hello Barbie talking doll or Dino,

But that can also generate a detailed record of your whereabouts. ■■ Thermostats from Nest and others will get smarter at conserving energy when you’re away. Potential burglars might find that information handy. ■■ Home security cameras are getting cheaper and more plentiful, but they’re sometimes insecure themselves, especially if you set them up clumsily. There’s already a website devoted to showing video from cameras with no passwords. Though they are mostly outdoor or business cameras, one was trained on a baby’s crib, and another in a living room. ■■ Wearable health devices will track your heart rate, fitness levels and more — and share achievements with friends and family. But slacking off may carry a heavier cost than those extra holiday pounds, particularly if your insurance company yanks discounts for not meeting fitness goals.

■■ Software from Google and Facebook will get even more refined to help you cut through the noise.

But maybe it’s less so when your phone knows enough about you to remind you it’s time to leave for an important interview (if the alternative
would be losing a shot at that job) or your smart home can really tell you if you turned off the oven before leaving for an international trip. “The encroachments on our privacy are often self-inflicted in the sense that we will accept the trade-off one bit at a time,” says John Palfrey, co-author of “Interop: The Promise and Perils of Highly Interconnected Systems. And these trade-offs can be quite subtle. Technological advances typically offer immediate, tangible benefits that, once you’ve put enough of them together, can indeed revolutionize daily life. Can you imagine living your life without a smartphone? A few years from now, you might goggle at the thought of managing your day without constant advice from Siri or “OK Google.” As for the risks, they’ll tend to be diffuse, abstract and often difficult to ascertain even if you’re paying attention — and most people won’t. In a study released Wednesday, the Pew Research Center says about half of American adults have no confidence that they understand what’s being done with their data, and about a third are discouraged by the amount of effort needed to get that understanding.
In short, convenience usually wins. Shiny new things are inherently attractive, and it takes a while for some of us to get uneasy about the extent to which we may be enabling our own surveillance. Humans have made this bargain with technology for some time. When cameras were invented, legal scholars debated how far you can go snapping pictures of people in public. That’s no longer an issue — although the camera on a drone in your back yard is. Over time, manufacturers will get better at putting in safeguards, and consumers will get better at setting boundaries and taking charge. For instance, this holiday season’s Hello Barbie talking toy won’t listen in until your kid presses its belt buckle. Though it does store conversations between kids and their dolls to improve speech-recognition technology, its maker says there’s little personal information tied to those conversations — no first or last names, no ages, no gender. “We don’t need that information,” said Martin Reddy, co-founder and chief technical officer of ToyTalk, which developed Hello Barbie with Mattel. “We don’t want that information. It just makes it more difficult on our end.” Of course, kids might simply tell their toys personal details about themselves. ToyTalk employees who review such conversations to improve the technology are trained to immediately delete anything sensitive, but they aren’t charged with actively monitoring stored discussions. So Step One in managing interactions with our newly smart digital companions comes down to simple attentiveness. Parents, for instance, can be actively involved in what their kids are doing — in this case, by taking the time to review and delete conversations from ToyTalk’s website. Step Two might be learning to say no. Many services ask for birth dates, phone numbers and even income levels just because they can — and few people resist. If enough people rise up, companies will stop. There’s precedent: Enough people fed up with online ads have turned to ad blockers, such that websites are taking steps to make ads less annoying. There will always be a trade-off, but the balance can always shift.
Is coming to work sick really a good idea? By David Templeton Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Too ill to work? Many people, and especially those with paid sick leave, stay home. However, even people with sick leave regularly engage in “presenteeism” — going to work while ill. It’s the opposite of absenteeism, and its effect on the workplace has been a topic long sequestered in academic journals. As we head into winter’s cold and flu season, presenteeism is gaining interest in the American workplace for good reason: More costly than absenteeism, it is detrimental to employees and employers alike. The U.S. Bureau of Labor says 39 percent of all American workers — or 41 million people — do not have paid sick leave. That means a lot of people are showing up for work while under the weather. In September, President Barack Obama signed an executive order forcing companies holding federal contracts to provide paid sickleave benefits to their employees. On the face of it, being sick at work might sound like something employers might favor, with some work preferable to none at all. Besides, such employees display a strong work ethic, job dedication and loyalty. But research generally finds health consequences for present-but-ill employees, with higher medical costs and greater reductions in productivity than absenteeism would cause.
People around them get sick, and it increases stress and gets into a death spiral for employers. — Scott Wallace, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth University
A Society for Human Resource Management online article said presenteeism costs are “higher than the combined costs of medical care, prescription drugs and absenteeism,” with estimated annual costs of $150 billion to $250 billion a year. That represents 60 percent of all productivity losses. “Unhealthy workers are unproductive workers — and they’re expensive,” stated Scott Wallace, a distinguished fellow at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth University. And the cost of poor health, he said, can be three to 10 times the total cost of all employee benefits. That’s why focusing on wellness rather than absenteeism represents a progressive workplace trend. “This issue is multifaceted, and I think people who ignore it do it with their heads in the sand,” Wallace said. “The impact on employees is tremendous when they show up at work sick. The stress makes them sicker, and their performance level at work is in the gutter. “People around them get sick, and it increases stress and gets into a death spiral for employers,” he said. “I’m mystified that
employers can’t figure this out in 11 seconds.” Employees who recover at home are more productive than persistently ill employees struggling at work to meet job demands, research shows. “Organizations need to think about this, develop policies and get first-level managers involved who are closest to the source,” said Gary Johns, a department of management professor at Concordia University in Montreal. He’s reviewed the academic literature addressing corporate and employee impacts of presenteeism. “Giving employees accommodation and support can be good all the way around,” he said. “They are under so much pressure to go to work that they are contaminating the place or are affecting their own health downstream. But this needs to be managed so you do not burn people out physically and abuse them and create problems. “It takes a sensitive hand,” he said. His own published studies note that “a sore throat will stimulate absenteeism for a singer and presenteeism for a pianist.” Reaction from colleagues and clients
also affect presenteeism, both as encouragers and discouragers. Teamwork and interdependent work tends to encourage presenteeism. People earning higher wages generally exhibit less absenteeism. People facing financial difficulties generally were more likely to show up for work when sick. Ill employees make more mistakes and communicate less effectively and produce lower quality work. Presenteeism among pharmacists, one study found, resulted in more prescription errors. Downsizing actually increases absenteeism. In a real twist, research shows a higher propensity for medical workers to be on the job, even with contagious illnesses. Job insecurity, strict attendance policies, teamwork, demanding clients and a positive attendance culture are among the factors promoting presenteeism. That, in turn, can exacerbate existing medical conditions, damage the quality of work life and lead to impressions of ineffectiveness because of declines in productivity. “There’s one thing we seem to
know about this,” Johns said. “In the aggregate, it appears that a lot more productivity is lost to presenteeism than absenteeism.” A delicate balance exists between absenteeism and presenteeism: Are co-workers and superiors aware that a person’s medical condition and productivity are connected? Are accommodations ever made in job design or adjusted performance appraisals?” While many companies still lack absentee policies beyond forbidding it, few companies have presenteeism policies despite growing evidence of its effect on productivity, said Johns, who holds a Ph.D. in organizational psychology. “Excitement concerning the subject has been fueled by claims that working while ill causes much more aggregate productivity loss than absenteeism,” states a study he authored in the Journal of Organizational Behavior. “Managing presenteeism effectively would be a distinct source of competitive advantage.” Other details are clear: People with infectious diseases should stay home or be separated from everyone else. Chronic problems — including back pain, depression and diabetes — are trickier. But Wallace said such employees may be more reliable with lower turnover because of their need to keep their job and medical benefits. They are cost-effective given the fact that training new employees is enormously expensive.

Pope: Time to end indifference, ‘false neutrality’ By Frances D’Emilio Associated Press
VATICAN CITY — Wishing for a year better than 2015, Pope Francis on Friday called for an end to the ‘’arrogance of the powerful” that relegates the weak to the outskirts of society, and to the ‘’false neutrality” toward conflicts, hunger and persecution that triggers exoduses of refugees. In his New Year’s homily, Francis emphasized the need to ‘’let ourselves be reborn, to overcome the indifference which blocks solidarity, and to leave behind the false neutrality which prevents sharing.” After celebrating Mass, the pope came to the window of a Vatican palazzo overlooking St. Peter’s Square to offer new year’s wishes to a crowd of tens of thousands of tourists and Romans cheering him from below. “At the start of the year,
it’s lovely to exchange wishes. Let’s renew, to one another, the desire that that which awaits us is a little better” than what last year brought, Francis said. “It is, after all, a sign of the hope that animates us and invites us all to believe in life.” “We know, however, that with the new year, everything won’t change and that many of yesterday’s problems will also remain tomorrow,” the pope said, adding that he was making a “wish sustained by a real hope.” As he did in his homily earlier in St. Peter’s Basilica, the pope issued a caution that “the enemy of peace isn’t only war, but also indifference,” and he decried “barriers, suspicions, fears and closures” toward others. In the New Year’s homily in St. Peter’s, he had reflected on the ‘’countless forms of injustice and violence which daily wound our human family.”
“Sometimes we ask ourselves how it is possible that human injustice persists unabated, and that the arrogance of the powerful continues to demean the weak, relegating them to the most squalid outskirts of our world.” He continued: “We ask how long human evil will continue to sow violence and hatred in our world, reaping innocent victims.” Francis cited no country, continent or conflict. But his words clearly evoked images of the refugees and migrants, more than 1 million of whom flooded into Europe from Africa, the Middle East and Asia in 2015, on dangerous sea or overland journeys. He spoke of “witnessing hordes of men, women and children fleeing war, hunger and persecution, ready to risk their lives simply to encounter respect for their fundamental rights.” The Catholic church dedicates New Year’s Day

to the theme of peace, and Francis this year is stressing mercy as the path toward reconciliation. To highlight the benefits springing from forgiveness and reconciliation

The Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement from St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church recently held a fundraising dinner at their parish to purchase 111 lap blankets for the disabled residents at Bethany at Pacific and to provide sack meals for a homeless shelter. The kids were responsible for setting up, serving dinner, providing the entertainment and cleaning up. Through the generous support from sponsors, families and friends with donations, auction items and raffle ticket sales, they were able to raise more than $5,000. The youth group delivered the blankets and cards to each Bethany resident the next day after caroling and entertaining at Bethany at Pacific’s annual Christmas Tea with family and friends.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■■COMMUNITY
Lombardi’s gave so generously The front page article of the Dec. 24 paper prompted me to go to Lombardi’s to drop off some items and volunteer in any way. (“Lombardi’s in Everett to feed homeless, hungry on Christmas.”) I was pleasantly surprised to see the owner, general manager, chef and other staff hard at work, volunteering their time away from family so that others could enjoy a superb Christmas Day meal. And when the patrons departed they were provided a “goody bag” that was filled with items provided by local merchants. Lombardi’s gets five stars in my book and the community should be pleased in knowing that Santa comes in many forms. Mike Kessler Young Marines National Foundation Chairman, Board of Directors

Box 930 Everett, WA 98206 reminding us that Santa needs to bring Americans courage, sanity and reason. But why wait for Santa? The Herald often sets an example of what media can do by reporting about the good things, like the Mukilteo police helping an out-of-state family when their gifts were stolen (“Mukilteo police help family visiting from Alabama after gifts were stolen” by Rikki King, Dec. 26.) Congress, too, did a good thing by making the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit permanent. Now 16 million Americans won’t be falling into or deeper into poverty thanks to this good work. We can also encourage the positive by asking Congress to pass the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (House: H.B. 3706 and Senate: S. 1911). Sen. Murray, along with Reps. Larsen and DelBene have cosponsored this
bill that works to end the preventable deaths of children under five and mothers in our world. At the same time, this bill ensures our aid dollars will be spent more efficiently, calls for no new money, and is supported on both sides of the aisle. We can thank them and ask them to redouble their efforts to pass this bill that would help save millions of lives every year. Actions like this lead to more courage, sanity and reason.

Peace truly begins at home Prior to closing for the Christmas celebrations, my son went to one of his department workers, a Muslim, and wished him, “AsSalamu Alaykum,” which means “The peace be with you.” The man, in turn, took a hold of Scott’s hand, smiled and said, “A merry Christmas to you.” Scott said he was moved to tears, as we all were, to hear of this blessed exchange. Let’s hope for a new beginning in 2016 that will lead to “a wonderful life,” with peace on Earth for all mankind. God bless us, every one. Gloria Martell McClinchy Everett
Keep your new year’s resolutions by enrolling in health coverage
very year, millions of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions. Do a Google search, and you’ll find healthrelated resolutions are among the most common: lose weight, exercise more, eat healthier, stop smoking, drink less, watch less TV, reduce stress. Unfortunately, most of us break our resolutions almost as soon as we make them. There is one resolution you can make and keep this year. Get a healthy start to the new year by signing up for health insurance through Washington HealthPlanFinder at www. wahealthplanfinder.org. Making and keeping that one resolution can actually help you keep other resolutions in 2016. Want to lose weight? Obesity screening and counseling are free preventive health benefits offered through Qualified Health Plans. Want to stop smoking? Tobacco use screening and cessation interventions for tobacco users are also free preventive health benefits. Want to lower your chronic disease risk? Diet counseling is available for adults
at higher risk of chronic disease. Alcohol misuse screening and counseling are also available as a preventive health benefits. The peace of mind that comes with having health coverage can reduce your stress. While some resolutions are on you, Health and Human Services is offering assistance to attain many health-related goals. From Coverage to Care (C2C) helps patients make better use of their health coverage. The materials are currently available in eight languages, with more to come. The Healthy Self Initiative encourages everyone to take control of their own health. Knowledge is power. Knowing more about your personal, family, and ethnic/racial disease history and tendencies, can help you and your provider make smarter decisions about your health care. For example, if you have a family history of heart disease, your provider might monitor you more closely. Your provider might also encourage you to take steps to lose weight, to exercise, and to eat a healthier diet. Likewise if you have a family history of prostate or breast
cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, or many other diseases with a genetic component, your provider might encourage you to take steps to reduce your risk. Other HHS websites such as health.gov, healthfinder.gov, womenshealth.gov, the Office of Minority Health site, and Let’s Move, offer resources and suggestions for living a healthier, more active life. So, whatever other resolutions you might make for 2016, make and keep that resolution to sign up for health coverage for you and your family. It’s really easy; just visit Washington HealthPlanFinder. However, time is limited. You MUST sign up by Jan. 31, or you’ll lose your opportunity to sign up for 2016 coverage unless you have a Qualifying Life Event. Make and keep your first resolution of the New Year. Sign up for coverage today. You’ll get a jump on some of those other resolutions for the year and you’ll feel better for it!

Opioid abuse calls for better treatment By Bloomberg View editors
here is a grim connection between two worsening addictions in the U.S.: prescription opioid painkillers and heroin. Both can be partly traced to worthwhile public-health initiatives that deserve to be protected. The first initiative was a 1990s campaign to get doctors to take people’s pain more seriously. This worked well — for some people, too well. The second effort was the recent response to the ensuing spike in opioid addiction: Legal controls on painkiller prescriptions were tightened, and some of the drugs were reformulated to make them harder to overuse. Preventing painkiller abuse will require cracking down on doctors who may be unscrupulous, or merely careless, as well as patients. Enforcing the law is no less important than alleviating pain or reducing addiction. A great many Americans are addicted, and lately some of them have turned to heroin as a
cheap, accessible — and illegal — alternative. (Heroin is just another kind of opioid, after all.) Both substances are increasingly abused: painkillers by nearly 2 million Americans and heroin by more than a half-million. Last year, nearly 19,000 people died from taking too many painkillers and more than 10,500 succumbed to heroin overdoses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this month offered some ideas for reining in opioid prescriptions. Draft guidelines advise doctors to hold back on giving patients drugs such as Vicodin and Percocet until after they’ve tried physical therapy and non-opioid painkillers. If opioids are still needed, the CDC suggests they be prescribed only at low doses for a short time, and that extended-release formulations, which are easier to abuse, should be avoided. Doctors should talk with patients about their experience with the drugs and to monitor patients closely for signs of dependence, especially those

who are taking higher doses. Yet none of these strategies can help people who are already hooked. The treatment of addiction needs to improve, too. Wider and more consistent use of so-called medication- assisted therapies can make it easier for addicts to recover, especially when paired with talk therapy and other behavioral strategies. Better training and information needs to be made available for family practice doctors, internists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants — the providers who prescribe the most opioid painkillers. And health insurers need to change their policies to make it easier for addicts to get more effective treatment. Careful but effective use of painkillers is not incompatible with the treatment of addiction. Preventing and prosecuting opioid abuse need not undermine efforts to ease pain and suffering. The above editorial appears on Bloomberg View at www. bloomberg.com/view.

A glorious and proper date night The Hotel Bellwether offers luxury in the heart of quirky, artistic Bellingham
The Hotel Bellwether in Bellingham has comfortable rooms, sweeping views, jacuzzi tubs and an in-house restaurant.
By Aaron Swaney Special to The Herald
My wife and I don’t get out much — at least on our own. Outside of going to work, if we leave the house we’re usually dragging along our three little munchkins, alternately playing Fight Night referee and Explainer of the Universe. (“Daddy, why are grapefruits not grapes?”) It’s fine. It’s just what happens when you have three kids, two jobs and no life. So a few weeks ago when we had the opportunity to have a proper date night, we jumped on it. It was glorious. We dropped the kids at the in-laws, scooted up to Bellingham and stayed the night at Hotel Bellwether, a luxury hotel on a small peninsula overlooking Bellingham Bay. We imbibed on a few adult beverages, laughed, ate and pretty much acted like we’d never heard of the concept of parenthood. Since my college days when I’d visit friends in “The ’Ham,” the quirky, artistic, liberal city just south of the border has always been one of my favorite places to hang out. Downtown is easy to walk and isn’t crowded and stressful like Seattle. You can see a show at the number of small clubs playing live music or an indie film at the Pickford Film Center. Oh, and there are plenty of great breweries and places to eat. As for our accommodations, Hotel Bellwether is a far cry from the couches I used to sleep on in college. We walked into our premier room and dropped our bags in shock. Besides the large king bed, there was a comfy sitting section with full-size sofa and a medium-sized bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. There was also a small deck with sweeping views of the San Juan Islands, Bellingham Bay and the marina. It’s a luxury hotel in every sense of the word. After a long week, I would have been content just taking a bath, donning one of the large bath robes, popping champagne and watching some SportsCenter. The wife had other plans — something about this is one of our only chances to get out and “do” something. “OK, OK,” I said. “Where’s the nearest brewery?” I got a not-so-fast look. Dinner first, she insisted. We decided to try the hotel’s in-house restaurant, the Lighthouse Bar & Grill. The restaurant faces the bay and south toward the city’s downtown, giving it beautiful views to go with the food. As for the food, head chef Michael Grogan makes traditional Pacific Northwest fare with a focus on local ingredients. Order the chef’s plate for the more inventive or adventurous meals, or stick to classic Puget Sound staples like clam chowder or grilled halibut. We found the charcuterie plate simple and approachable but preferred the chef’s inventive sauces and use of seasonal vegetables. After dinner is time for a drink. Bellingham is home to some of the region’s best breweries, including the old standbys Boundary Bay and Chuckanut — which is right down the street from Hotel Bellwether — and up-and-comers like Aslan, Shuksan and Wander. The city also boasts a

wonderful bottleshop/bar in Elizabeth Station. With 16 beers on tap and many, many more in bottles, Elizabeth Station is a great place for beer nerds to hang out, tilt a few back and talk about … well, what else: beer. Thankfully Elizabeth Station was just a hop, skip and a jump from the hotel. We wandered in on a busy night. A cook from the food truck just outside the entrance was hollering out orders and, despite the chilly environs, close to a dozen people had set up residence at the picnic tables outside. I ordered a beer while my wife took off toward the back where a newly renovated portion of the bottleshop has become a cider bar called Cidra. The best part of Elizabeth Station is the fact you can drink a beer while eye-balling the scores of coolers full of

After getting some great advice on places to eat, we had breakfast at Old Town Café, a local favorite (try the Number Nine dish, two poached eggs on a biscuit drenched in all kinds of goodness), and grabbed some great coffee at the Black Drop Coffee House a few blocks away. We then walked over to Henderson Books. Sipping our coffee, we agreed to separate and get lost in the stacks of books (my wife gravitated toward the cookbooks, while I perused the row upon row of nonfiction). After buying a few books (Hello “Boys in the Boat”!), we dropped by Allied Arts, a nonprofit art space, and checked out their unique artist’s garage sale, contemplated seeing a movie at Limelight Cinema
(we didn’t) and did some Christmas shopping at Spruce, a stationary and design shop. There were a number of fun entertainment options just in the tiny neighborhood we explored. There’s the Mount Baker Theatre, which hosts a number of well-known musical and comedy acts, Pickford Film Center (the big brother to Limelight) and SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention. That’s kids stuff, though, so we went directly to where my wife was gravitationally pulled: chocolate. Belllingham’s Chocolate Necessities specializes in all things chocolate. They have a number of their own chocolate bars and truffles that they sell as well as some from a local chocolatiers like Mount Vernon’s Forte and Lynden’s Fresco Chocolate. They also serve gelato and coffee and chocolate drinks. My wife got a bar and some drinking chocolate, while I went with a mocha. All of it was divine. Sadly, kids must eventually come home and our children were on their way. We checked out of the Hotel Bellwether and headed for home. But not before one last stop. The siren song of award-winning beer was too great, so we stopped at Chuckanut Brewery for a pint. Like the entire whirlwind day/ night trip to Bellingham, it was well worth it.

More than 100 people were displaced. Of those, 15 stayed Thursday night in a shelter set up at a nearby church, said Chuck Morrison, director of the Snohomish County branch of the American Red Cross. His team on Friday was trying to get in touch with everyone who needed assistance. “We will assume it will be very difficult to find housing over the weekend, so we’ll be open at least through the weekend and help folks from there,” he said. Firefighters on Friday also were allowing people inside to retrieve medication and other critical belongings. Within the building that caught fire, seven apartments burned and 23 more sustained smoke damage, Hicks said. Windows burst from their frames, leaving melted venetian blinds dangling free.

DOUG RAMSAY / FOR THE HERALD
A Snohomish County Fire District 7 firefighter along with fire crews from Everett and around Snohomish County battle a three-alarm fire in an apartment building on West Casino Road on New Years Eve.
The temperatures overnight were below freezing. The parking lot was a sheet of ice after daybreak, with crews pouring down a powder mix to get traction. It was believed to be the biggest fire in Everett since the November 2012 blaze at the downtown McCrossen Building, at 1814 Hewitt Ave. The Hodges fire the next year was a two-alarm fire, meaning fewer resources were deployed. More than 90 firefighters from throughout Snohomish County had arrived on scene at the height of the New Year’s Eve blaze. They monitored hot spots overnight. “We’re just making sure nothing flares up,”
Hicks said. The Bluffs apartments occupy 9.2 acres near the intersection of W. Casino Road and Evergreen Way, and include more than 200 units. The construction dates back to 1969, county property records show. That likely would predate local fire codes that require sprinklers in larger buildings. The listed owner is a limited-liability company with a Hawaii address. The property, which sold in 2005 for $11 million, is part of the Hearthstone Housing Foundation, a low-income housing group with offices in Seattle and California.

Service meteorologist. Conversely, the coldest days weren’t many when “you go back and look at how few low-temperature records were set,” said weather service meteorologist Ted Buehner. There were consequences to the warmth, dryness and depleted snowpack. “The forests were drier sooner,” Bower said. “The fire season started earlier.” The 2015 wildfire season was the largest in Washington state history, with more than 1 million
acres burning across the state from June to September, according to the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center. A fire near Twisp killed three U.S. Forest Service firefighters in August. Closer to home, parched brown grass made for fastburning tinder with a rash of brush fires that kept Snohomish County firefighters busy from spring into the fall.

Big city amenities, small town atmosphere Annual events help‘The Strawberry City’ retain its charm while commercial options grow By Leah SchmaLz
Special to The Daily Herald
s the second largest city in Snohomish County, with a population of roughly 63,000, Marysville offers an array of shopping and business selections. Sound Harley-Davidson, Seattle Premium Outlets and the nearby Tulalip Casino make Marysville a destination for visitors. At the same time, the charm of the community is not lost to these amenities. “We still maintain a warm, small-town atmosphere thanks to community events like the Strawberry Festival, annual Easter egg hunt, father-daughter Valentine’s Day dance and our popular Merrysville for the Holidays parade,” said Mayor Jon Nehring. Earning the nickname, “The Strawberry City,” Marysville was once surrounded by strawberry fields and the sweet fruit is still celebrated every June at the Strawberry Festival and Grand Parade. Downtown Third Street, with its quaint storefronts, is the perfect locale for a pleasant stroll or bargain hunting. A vast shopping selection is also offered at the Lakewood Crossing and Gateway shopping centers. Outdoor enthusiasts can access the 17-mile Centennial Trail in town. An abundance of parks and recreational spaces are spread throughout the city, including the Ebey Waterfront Park that offers access to the

Ask the expert
Q When should I refinance? A To see if refinancing makes sense, first start by determining the approximate breakeven point, or the number of months that it will take for you to recover the costs of refinancing. For example, let’s say you have a $200,000 fixed rate mortgage at 5% with good credit and you can refinance to a 4% fixed rate loan. Let’s also assume that it will cost you $4,000 in closing costs to refinance. In this case you are saving approximately $2,000 a year, so you would recover your costs in about two years. If you plan on keeping your home for more than two years, in this case it may make sense to refinance. To make sure you do not end up paying more in the long run, consider matching the term of the new loan with the number of months you have left to pay on your current mortgage. This is just a
rule of thumb and does not factor in such things as the tax implications of mortgage interest. To make this process easier, Ray Batalona BECU has several different refinance calculators at www.becuhomeloans.org to help determine if refinancing is right for you.
Q Is it there a percent I should look for?
A Not necessarily. The length of time that you will own your home is the biggest factor as this factors into when you will break even. Other reasons you may want to refinance are if you have an adjustable rate mortgage or an FHA loan with Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). – Ray Batalona, BECU Mortgage Advisor, 425-609-5481 1495949

Everett beats Kelowna 3-1 to move one point ahead of Seattle in U.S. Division standings By Jesse Geleynse Herald Writer
EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips have been comfortable on the road of late as they have won five of their last six games away from Xfinity Arena. Friday afternoon the Silvertips showed how formidable they can be at home as they defeated the Kelowna Rockets 3-1 before 5,324 fans for their first home victory since Dec. 5. Everett also moved
back into first place in the U.S. Division standings. Friday’s victory made it two straight over the defending WHL champion and Western Conference-leading Kelowna (2710-2-0, 56 points). The Silvertips (21-12-0-2, 44 points) moved one point ahead of idle Seattle for the division lead. “We had a rough one against Vancouver (Sunday) so we were looking to bounce back, and we had a good 60-minute showing in
Everett at Kamloops, 7 p.m. Radio: KRKO (1380 AM)
Kelowna (on Wednesday),” Everett defenseman Brycen Martin said. “Then we knew they were going to come hungry tonight so
we put another gear on and we were successful.” With the Tips nursing a 1-0 lead Martin doubled the advantage when he fired a wrister from the high slot past Kelowna goaltender Michael Herringer’s left pad off a centering pass from Carson Stadnyk for a power-play goal at 18:37 in the opening period. The goal, Martin’s first since being acquired in a trade from Saskatoon at the beginning of December, held up as the
game-winner. “It feels good, but I’m a D-man so I’m not worried about scoring too many goals,” Martin said. “(I’m) just trying to do my job and it worked out tonight.” The Silvertips pushed their lead to 3-0 on their second power-play opportunity at 4:13 in the second period.

Seahawks’ Wilson’s secret Stanford runs wild, routs Iowa in Rose Bowl to durability? Swimming By Gregg Bell
Christian McCaffrey sets Rose Bowl record with 368 all-purpose yards in Stanford’s 45-16 throttling of Iowa.
The News Tribune
By Greg Beacham Associated Press
PASADENA, Calif. — The first time Christian McCaffrey touched the ball in the 102nd Rose Bowl, he took it 75 yards for a spectacular touchdown. A few hundred yards later, Stanford’s sophomore star had smashed the oldest bowl game’s record for all-purpose yards while leading the Cardinal to a blowout win over Iowa. Sure, McCaffrey didn’t win the Heisman Trophy, and Stanford barely missed out on the College Football Playoff.

RENTON — Russell Wilson’s secrets to his seemingly innate longevity? To his ability to withstand brutal hits? To start not just every game but every practice? Postgame swimming. Plus weight-lifting and the advice of Leon Washington, Vinny Testaverde and Warren Moon. Last weekend, St. Louis hit the Seattle Seahawks quarterback a season-high 13 times. It was one of his more violent bludgeoning the last couple years. Wilson’s been hit 24 times in his last two games. He got sacked 31 times in his first seven games to this Seahawks season. Yet Sunday’s game between Seattle (9-6) and the NFC Westchampion Cardinals (13-2) at Arizona will be Wilson’s 64th consecutive start in the regular season to begin his career. He’s also started all eight of Seattle’s playoff games during his career, despite often taking hits from

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Montreal Forum was the Canadiens’ home for one of the most successful dynasties in professional sports. The Bruins and Celtics filled the Boston Garden rafters with championship banners. The Original Six rivals met at the home of the defending Super Bowl champions for the NHL Winter Classic on Friday, and it was the visiting Canadiens and their locally grown goalie who managed to mimic the New England Patriots’ success. Wearing a mask decorated with a Patriots theme and

Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A frustrated Rick Pitino said the NCAA has not interviewed him about an escort’s book allegations of sex parties at Louisville players’ dormitory and doesn’t believe the scandal will be resolved until summer. At the end of Friday’s news conference previewing Louisville’s Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Wake Forest, the Cardinals coach answered an initial question about whether he made an obscene gesture to Kentucky fans following last week’s loss — he has said he didn’t — before going on an unprompted diatribe about the sex scandal surrounding his program. Katina Powell has alleged former Louisville staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits and players. Pitino has denied knowledge of the allegations but said Friday he believes one person did “some scurrilous things.” Pitino didn’t mention McGee as the person in question.

Tuukka Rask stopped 25 shots for the Bruins, and Matt Beleskey scored in the third period to avert the first shutout in Winter Classic history.

outlets for giving Powell a forum to lay out allegations he has denied knowing about and also questioned. He also has concerns about some of the reporting that has been done, as well as how the journal was put together. He said some of his concerns were raised during a meeting between Louisville athletic officials and Indianapolis-based IBJ Book Publishing — which published “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen.” “You mean to tell me a fouryear record was kept? There was no four-year record that was kept, come on,” said Pitino, adding that the school has been wronged. “You’ve got to be kidding me. ... “Here they’re saying they kept a journal for four years and can’t complete two sentences? Something’s not right here.” Powell’s attorney, Larry Wilder of Jeffersonville, Indiana, has stood by his client’s accounts in interviews and said Friday in a lengthy text to The Associated Press that the NCAA went through each page of Powell’s five journals.
to preserve the victory in part by killing all four Kelowna power plays — including two taken by captain Dawson Leedahl in the final 3:48 of the game. That followed a 3-for-3 penalty kill effort during Wednesday’s 2-1 overtime win at Kelowna. The Tips aren’t doing anything different on the penalty kill — just “getting it done,” Constantine said. The Silvertips opened strong as they fired a 13-shot barrage at Herringer in the opening period. Remi Laurencelle crashed the net and buried a rebound of Lucas Skrumeda’s shot for a 1-0 Everett lead at 2:56 in the opening period. Martin’s goal gave Everett the 2-0 lead through the first period. It became hang-on time following Millar’s goal. “I thought (Wednesday) we got a touch better every period,” Constantine said. “Tonight our best period was our first and we got a touch worse every period. It was a different game, but it just shows you that sports is momentum and it shifts in how you’re
PULLMAN — Nikola Jovanovic led Southern California with 20 points and 12 rebounds as the Trojans opened Pac-12 Conference play with a 90-77 win over Washington State on Friday night. Jordan McLaughlin added 19 points for the Trojans (12-2), who have won seven consecutive games. USC had lost 10 straight Pac-12 road games since winning March 6, 2014 at Washington State. Shorewood alum Josh Hawkinson led WSU (8-5) with 19 points and 13 rebounds. Ike Iroegbu, the only other Cougar with more than nine points, had 13. USC led by 25 points three times in the first half before taking a 54-37 lead into the locker room. The 54 points in a half were a season high for USC and against Washington State. McLaughlin, mixing jump shots with impressive drives to the basket, scored 16 points in the half on 7-for-9 shooting. Jovanovic, working inside, scored 14 points and sank all six of his fieldgoal attempts in the half. Julian Jacobs scored 12 points for USC, and Katin Reinhardt and Elijah Stewart both had 11. Stewart, coming off the bench for just the second time this season, scored nine unanswered points midway through the first half. Stewart’s outburst included a 3-point play when he stole an outlet pass from Hawkinson at midcourt and slammed home a dunk, fouled by Hawkinson. Stewart hung from the rim while his feet grazed Hawkinson’s head. The Trojans led by 20 or more points much of the game. The Cougars pulled within 12 at 87-75 when Brett Boese sank a 3-pointer from the left corner with four minutes to go, but WSU did not score again until Hawkinson dunked with six-tenths of a second to go.
Stanford 70, Utah 68 (OT) STANFORD, Calif. — Rosco Allen scored five of his 17 points in overtime after banking in the tying basket with 10.5 seconds remaining in regulation, and Stanford took advantage of many missed free throws to beat No. 21 Utah in the Pac-12 opener for both schools. The Utes (11-3, 0-1) got one final play with 7 seconds to go and Lorenzo Bonam drove into traffic and traveled. Freshman Marcus Sheffield scored a season-high 17 points and Marcus Allen added 14 for Stanford (8-4, 1-0), which made 10 of its first 18 shots out of halftime to get back in the game.
Cal 79, Colorado 65 BERKELEY, Calif. — Jordan Mathews matched his season high of 22 points and made five 3-pointers in the second half as California beat Colorado in the Pac-12 opener for both teams. Mathews missed his first four shots from beyond the arc and had just two points in the first half before warming up. His fourth 3 of the night gave Cal a 57-37 lead while his fifth stopped a big run by Colorado and enabled the Golden Bears (11-3, 1-0) to pull away. The Buffaloes (11-3, 0-1) have lost two straight since their 11-game winning streak.
approaching the game mentally. The secret is to stay on task all the time no matter what’s going on around you.” Laurencelle added an assist to his team-leading 20th goal of the season.

Injuries could hamper Seahawks Tight end Luke Willson and guard J.R. Sweezy are out with concussions and tackle Russell Okung, who has a calf injury, might not play in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals in Arizona. By Tim Booth Associated Press
RENTON — The Seattle Seahawks could be missing two starting offensive linemen and their starting tight end for Sunday’s regular-season finale in Arizona. Pete Carroll said nothing will change with the game plan or how they intend to use quarterback Russell Wilson. The Seahawks will be without starting tight end Luke Willson and starting right guard J.R. Sweezy and likely starting left tackle Russell Okung at Arizona. Willson and Sweezy are out with concussions, while Okung is listed as doubtful with a calf injury. But Carroll offered a bright spot headed into the playoffs, saying that Marshawn Lynch continued to make progress in his recovery from abdominal surgery. Carroll is “anticipating” that Lynch will rejoin the team Monday. Carroll said the reports from Lynch’s trainers in the Bay Area say there have been no setbacks. “He’s really tried to get back as soon as possible,” Carroll said. “He’s having the kind of success in the workouts that it’s not setting him back. We’re hoping that means he has a chance to get back.” Willson’s concussion was known after taking a hit to the head during last Sunday’s loss to St. Louis, but Sweezy’s concussion didn’t become known until he was listed on the injury report Wednesday. Carroll said it was at the team’s morning walkthrough on Wednesday when it became apparent something was off with Sweezy. He had not reported any concussion symptoms after last Sunday’s game, but when he was examined Wednesday he was placed into the concussion protocol. “We missed it on Monday and Tuesday. We didn’t see it,” Carroll said of Sweezy. “As soon as we got out here and ran around with him, we could tell that something was up, and so we had to dump him right into the protocol and see what we could get done with him.” Okung was injured in Week 15 against Cleveland and was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. Carroll said Okung’s calf was sore on Thursday and was why he did not practice. Alvin Bailey will make his second straight start in place of Okung,

Seahawks tight end Luke Willson, who sustained a concussion in last Sunday’s game against the Rams, will not play against the Cardinals on Sunday.
while rookie Mark Glowinski will likely get his first extended playing time of the season filling in for Sweezy. “You can only go with what you’ve got. We feel good about giving Mark a chance at this point,” Carroll said. While there are injury issues on offense for the Seahawks, their defense is getting closer to full health. Strong safety Kam Chancellor (pelvis/tailbone) was listed
as questionable after being a full participant in practice on Friday, while Michael Bennett (toe) and Cliff Avril (back) were both probable. Chancellor has not played since the first quarter of the Week 14 victory at Baltimore, sitting out the past two games. Seattle also expects backup defensive tackle Jordan Hill (toe) back for the first time since Week 12 against Pittsburgh.
Seahawks: Super Bowl a distant memory By Tim Booth Associated Press
RENTON — The Seattle Seahawks’ last trip to Glendale, Arizona, is not a popular conversation topic inside the locker room. Understandably so considering the outcome. For the first time since the heartbreak of the Super Bowl in February, the Seahawks will return to University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday to take on the Arizona Cardinals. But the Seahawks are downplaying any flashbacks or thoughts of February’s loss to New England. “That’s in the past. I don’t think anybody on the team thinks about that,” said cornerback DeShawn Shead. “We’re playing a whole different team, it’s a whole other atmosphere. This is what is right here in front of us and this is the next opportunity” Quarterback Russell Wilson, who made the fateful throw from the 1-yard line that was intercepted by Malcolm Butler in the closing seconds and clinched the Patriots’ victory, is the only one who has been open about looking forward to being back there this week. In the midst of his postgame availability after losing to St. Louis last Sunday, Wilson dropped a little nugget regarding the season finale against the Cardinals. “Going to Arizona, the last time we
were there, it didn’t work out our way. I know for me, I’m looking forward to being on that turf again,” Wilson said. Asked about that comment on Thursday, Wilson again brought up the challenge of getting past a difficult moment in his career. “I think it builds you up. I think it helps you understand the ball doesn’t always bounce your way. We’ve had it bounce our way a lot and hopefully we can keep that going,” Wilson said. “But I think this game is so much bigger than just a game. Winning is what it’s all about. We all come here to win. .... But when it doesn’t work out, how can you use that? How can you use that for encouragement for others? How can you use that for yourself? How can you continue to build and evolve and progress? It’s been a constant progression, this journey.” During training camp and leading into the season, how Seattle would get past the Super Bowl disappointment was the main topic of conversation. But as the season progressed, there were other issues that surfaced so any Super Bowl hangover took a backseat. Whether it was Kam Chancellor’s holdout to begin the regular season, to starting 2-4, to the injury problems of Marshawn Lynch, it’s been a newsy enough season for Seattle that the Super Bowl was somewhat forgotten. It’s been brought up on various occasions. Offensive coordinator Darrell
Bevell — who called the famous slant pass that went horribly wrong for Seattle — spoke earlier in December about still having that play in the back of his mind but understanding the team had to move on. “There’s really not time that doesn’t go by where you still think about it. I know how I feel about it and I know the feelings that it conjures up inside of me when I think about it,” Bevell said. “But it’s one play, and I have to look at it that way, and I was able to put it behind me. That doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still have a reaction to it.” The topic of returning to Glendale popped up this week in part because of Wilson’s initial comment. There is very little for the Seahawks to play for. They are already in the playoffs as a wild card and the only remaining question is whether they are the No. 5 or No. 6 seed and if they’ll open the postseason at Green Bay, Washington or Minnesota. Jermaine Kearse, who made one of the most memorable catches in Super Bowl history that almost immediately became an afterthought, said the Super Bowl won’t cross his mind when he walks in the stadium. And head coach Pete Carroll dismissed the idea that going back to that stadium was any sort of issue. “Just that it’s not a big deal. It’s not a big deal for us going back,” Carroll said. “That’s where we’re playing, that’s all.”
Foot injury likely to keep Gurley out of Rams’ final game Associated Press NAPA, Calif. — St. Louis rookie running back Todd Gurley missed his third straight practice because of a right foot injury and is likely to be held out of the Rams’ final regular-season game. The 10th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Gurley has spent the past week getting treatment on his foot after being hurt late in the second half of St. Louis’ win over Seattle. Gurley, who also missed the first two games of the season recovering from an ACL injury in college, has improved, but
coach Jeff Fisher said he doesn’t want to risk making the injury worse. Gurley was listed as doubtful on the injury report. “We’re thinking about the long-term future,” Fisher said Friday. “He’s got an issue he’s dealing with and we’re still doing tests. The difference between him playing and making things worse could be the difference between 6-8 weeks of rehab during the offseason. Right now we got really good news and good results but it’s doubtful that he plays Sunday.” Despite playing in only 13 games, Gurley is third in the NFL with 1,106 yards
rushing and has 10 touchdowns. It’s the most rushing yards by a Rams rookie since Jerome Bettis ran for 1,429 in 1993. Gurley had four straight 100-yard games beginning in October and five overall. That’s made Gurley a leading candidate for rookie of the year, although the 21-year-old is all but certain to watch St. Louis’ game at San Francisco on Sunday from the sideline. “I just don’t want to set it back anymore,” Fisher said. “It just makes sense for the organization, the future of the organization. It’s rest for a couple of weeks and he’ll be fine.”

Yes, the most indispensable Seahawk gets in the pool each Monday so he can practice all week and play yet again on Sunday. Wilson tries to do up to 30 laps in a pool the day after games. “I swim pretty good. I’m not a phenomenal swimmer or anything like that; I’m not Michael Phelps out there,” he said, chuckling. “But for me, I definitely swim laps. I’ll swim probably 30 if I can, if I have the opportunity to swim in a big enough pool. So that’s a big thing for me. “I’m not going to tell you where I go swim.” Could be inside his own house. In this year that just ended the 27-year-old Wilson bought a 10,700-square-foot mansion on Lake Washington west of downtown Bellevue for $6.7 million — though in real-estate listings none say it has an indoor pool. Wherever he does it, it works. Not only has Wilson never missed a game in his NFL career, he hasn’t been on an injury report — not for even a single practice day. The only time he’s missed any Seahawks practice came in May. He missed a voluntary minicamp. He chose to fly to Florida to attend the funeral of a beloved mother figure to new teammate Jimmy Graham, instead. Wilson hasn’t missed any game or practice time since the first game of his freshman year at North Carolina State. On Aug. 29, 2008, Wilson left his college debut strapped to a board. He got hospitalized with a grade-three concussion. He missed NC State’s next game, then returned to start his final 49 college games in a row for the Wolfpack and one, final season for Wisconsin in 2011. How vital have Wilson’s resiliency, preparation and preservation been to Seattle making the playoffs in all four of his seasons, to appearing in the last two Super Bowls and winning it all two seasons ago? Consider whom other playoff teams will have starting at quarterback beginning next week, because of injuries to their starters this season: A.J. McCarron (Cincinnati) and Brock Osweiler (Denver). Brandon Weeden, cut this season by Dallas, was AFC South-leading Houston’s starter until Wednesday when Brian Hoyer got cleared to return. Hoyer’s had two concussions this season and five in his career. “It’s tremendously valuable, and yeah, you do get accustomed to it,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Wilson’s longevity. “He’s out here today going, and you saw him get hit a little bit last week. “I hate to think that we would take it for granted, but when he’s so steady and so consistent, and he also continues to demonstrate the conscience that’s necessary, even though he pushed the limits a little bit last week, to stay healthy and to stay right. ... We’ve seen a lot of other young quarterbacks that haven’t been able to figure that out. “We’re very fortunate to have him, and the way that he’s been able to maintain is pretty rare.” After Seattle drafted Wilson in the third round in 2012 and made him its starter from game one, he noticed how indestructible a certain Seahawks running back and kick returner was. “The guy that I really looked up to in terms of the durability factor was Leon Washington,” Wilson said of the veteran who played in 48 consecutive games to begin his career with the New York Jets, then 48 more in a row with Seattle from 2010-23. “He was here, kickoff returner, special, special player. A special guy. Loved everything about him. His work ethic, his professionalism every day.” So where does a former Heisman Trophywinning quarterback and the No. 1-overall pick in the 1987 draft who played the most demanding position in the NFL through 2007 come in? In Wilson’s other day-after regimen: Heavy Monday weight-lifting during the season. “I’ll never forget, I was at IMG training for the (2012 NFL scouting) combine, and Vinny Testaverde was there,” Wilson said. “He played in the league for 21 years ... and I used to ask him what he used to do. He was a big believer in lifting, and moving, and making sure you ran after the game and stuff like that. So a guy who played 21 years, I believe in that.” He also believes in what the Seahawks’ radio analyst and former Washington Huskies, Edmonton Eskimos, Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle QB of 17 seasons through 2000 has told him. “Even guys like Warren Moon, talking to him, and asking him for knowledge, a Hall of Famer,” Wilson said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be around enough guys to kind of gain some knowledge and use that knowledge to help me, and steal some knowledge from guys like Leon Washington on taking care of my body and how to do it, and all that. I used to ask so many questions. “So hopefully I can do that for somebody else someday.” As for the hits he took against the Rams, and the ones he is likely to take Sunday from the swarming Cardinals who blitz more than anyone? “If I didn’t want to get hit,” Wilson said, “I’d play a different sport.” Plus, Wilson views all those hits, even home losses like last week’s that stopped the Seahawks’ five-game winning streak, differently than most. “The bad things, I never call them ‘bad,’” Wilson said. “I call them ‘experience.’”

COMMENTARY | College football
America, meet Christian McCaffrey
From Page C1
By Bill Plaschke
Three-time Rose Bowl starter Kevin Hogan passed for 223 yards and three TDs in his final game for the Cardinal (12-2) as this unlikely Bay Area football powerhouse won the Granddaddy of Them All for the second time in three trips over the past four years. “It’s so fun when a team can come together,” McCaffrey said. “We’ve got a bunch of fighters on this team that will never give up. Just love playing with these guys.” McCaffrey was sublime in his Rose Bowl debut, breaking the all-purpose yards record set by Wisconsin’s Jared Abbrederis in 2012. McCaffrey finished second behind Alabama’s Derrick Henry in the Heisman voting, but the speedy running back turned in one of the most dynamic performances in the Rose Bowl’s lengthy history. “I think he was the best player in America before this game, so I think it’s just the icing on the cake,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “I do think it’s a shame that a lot of people didn’t get to see him during the course of the year. Apparently the games were too late.” The world was wide awake to see McCaffrey in Pasadena — and he scored 11 seconds in. Hogan’s throw to McCaffrey was the second-longest TD pass in Rose Bowl history and the longest play given up all season by the stingy Iowa defense. “I wouldn’t say I was in shock, (but) it was like, ‘Dang, already?”’ Stanford left tackle Kyle Murphy said. “I knew they haven’t seen a player of his caliber all year, someone with speed like that. With all the Heisman stuff, he felt really snubbed. He’s not going to say anything about it, but all of us, we know. He’s the best player in the country. It lit a fire under him, although he’s already the hardest-working man and most motivated man.” McCaffrey finished with 172 yards rushing, 105 yards receiving and 91 on kick returns, putting an appropriate cap on the season in which he set the NCAA record for all-purpose yards. He also became the first player ever to rack up more than 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving in a Rose Bowl — and he even became the single-season rushing leader in Stanford history with 2,109 yards on the ground. Stanford and Iowa finished in the final two spots outside the College Football Playoff field, but the Cardinal showed they belong among the best with their 12th win in their final 13 games. With a powerful offensive line and a sturdy defense, they also ruined the first Rose Bowl in 25 years for the Hawkeyes (12-2), who followed up their remarkable 12-0 regular season with two postseason losses. C.J. Beathard passed for 239 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns for the Hawkeyes, whose thousands of fans proudly filled the venerable stadium with old gold and black. The faithful had painfully little to cheer after Iowa fell behind on the first snap, putting a daylong damper on Kirk Ferentz’s first Rose Bowl after 17 years as a head coach. “Just like this game won’t define this team, one play doesn’t define a game,” Ferentz said. “We had ample opportunity after that to play, but they played a tremendous game in all phases.” The Cardinal had the highest-scoring first quarter and first half in the Rose Bowl’s lengthy history. After McCaffrey’s opening TD, Hogan rushed for an 8-yard score and Quenton Meeks returned an interception 66 yards for another TD in the first 11 minutes. Iowa had never trailed by more than seven points at any point in its magical season, which included the first 12-0 start in school history before a narrow loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten title game. But the rout was really on after McCaffrey made his 63-yard TD return in the opening minute of the second, juking Iowa linebacker Josey Jewell on the way. “He’s a guy that can move around you, make quick cuts,” Jewell said. “He has the breakaway speed, and he’s a great running back overall.” Stanford even got creative — or cruel, depending on your perspective. Hogan appeared to fake a fumbled handoff to McCaffrey in the second quarter before popping up and throwing to an untouched Michael Rector for a 31-yard score, making it 35-0 at halftime. The play has a name: Hawkeye. Iowa avoided a shutout on Marshall Koehn’s 39-yard field goal in the third quarter, prompting huge cheers and a confetti shower from the Hawkeyes’ band. Matt VandeBerg and Akrum Wadley caught Beathard’s late scoring passes.
Los Angeles Times
ASADENA, Calif. — You believe it now, America? Do you finally believe this country’s best college football player is the one who lost the Heisman Trophy? Do you finally believe this country’s most breathtaking college football player is the one with an ordinary build, from a brainy school, with a teenage slouch and a childlike smile? While he was sprinting, you were sleeping. While he was making history in Palo Alto, you were paying attention to Tuscaloosa. While he was breaking records, you were buying into stereotypes. But surely now you see, you must see, after 102-year-old Granddaddy jumped out of his chair Friday afternoon, threw open the doors to his sun-kissed Pasadena bungalow, and introduced him. America, the Rose Bowl would like you to meet Christian McCaffrey. Yeah, that was him, No. 5, green grass stains streaking down the side of his white uniform, black headband bunched on his brown hair, Rose Bowl history in his shoes. Yep, that was the Stanford running back who juked and zagged and darted around television screens like a distressed bug in leading the Cardinal to a dominating 45-16 win over alleged Big Ten power Iowa in the Rose Bowl. “Like somebody you create in a video game,” Cardinal receiver Francis Owusu said. McCaffrey scored the game’s first touchdown on a 75-yard pass play in the game’s first 15 seconds. He scored Stanford’s fourth touchdown on a swirling punt return that left blackshirted Iowa players scattered across the grass like skid marks. He ran, he caught, here one minute, gone the next, 172 rushing yards, 105 receiving yards, and the only place he finally stopped was the Rose Bowl record books. His name will remain etched there for the immediate future as his 368 all-purpose yards are the most in Rose Bowl history. He’s also the only player in this game to have more than 100 yards running and receiving. None of those marks were perhaps as impressive as his countless sideline hugs in the game’s roaring waning moments, the 19-year-old sophomore showing uncommon gratitude to everyone from sweaty starter to cleanuniformed subs to dudes on crutches. McCaffrey embraced teammates, coaches, ball boys, administrators, the impact player showing his true self not in his stardom, but in reveling in being just one of the gang. Watching the scene was his father, Ed McCaffrey, a former Super Bowl champion receiver who smiled with pride. “He signed up for football just to do something with his friends and be part of something bigger than himself,” Ed said. “For him, today is about winning the game and having fun.” Sure enough, only one postgame question stumped the younger McCaffrey, and it was about his individual numbers. When asked if this was his best game, McCaffrey said, “I don’t know how to answer that.” He then paused and added, “It’s so fun when a team can come together and gel. ... Just love playing with these guys.” Yet even with all of his teammate

Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, who set a Rose Rowl record with 368 allpurpose yards, runs away from Iowa’s Jordan Lomax during the first half of Friday’s Rose Bowl game in Pasadena, Calif.
love, McCaffrey will be most celebrated for his numbers, and so far the one that history will most remember is an unsettling No. 2. McCaffrey finished second in this year’s Heisman Trophy voting to Alabama running back Derrick Henry even though, at the time of the voting, McCaffrey had already set the NCAA season record for all-purpose yards. “It’s criminal that he did not win the Heisman, it’s criminal,” Stanford guard Joshua Garnett said. The outcome was crazy, it was wrong, and it was directly tied to the Pac-12’s weak position with its television partners, as seven of Stanford’s 13 games before Friday were played at 10 p.m. or later on the East Coast and in the South, where huge Heisman voting blocs reside. Believe it or not, the Rose Bowl was the first chance for many folks to see a star that Pac-12 followers have been raving about all season. If viewers still didn’t believe McCaffrey deserved the Heisman, the Rose Bowl was filled with people who were happy to remind them. “Heis-man, Heis-man,” chanted the Stanford cheering section early in the game. “Heis-man, Heis-man,” chanted the fan who interrupted McCaffrey’s postgame TV interview “Heis-man, Heis-man,” chanted McCaffrey’s own teammates during the postgame award ceremony, so loud that it drowned out his remarks. Later, however, the words of his coach were unmistakable. “I think he was the best player in America before this game, so I think it’s just the icing on the cake for us,” David Shaw said. “I do think it’s a shame that a lot of people didn’t get a chance to see him during the course of the year. Apparently the games were too late.” McCaffrey, whom Southern California fans can appreciate after watching him torch UCLA and USC this season for a total of 1,079 all-purpose yards — that is not a misprint — went to work early Friday. On the game’s first play from scrimmage, McCaffrey streaked across the field on a slant pattern, caught a pass from Kevin Hogan around the 35-yard

line, and literally ran away from the entire Iowa defense for a 75-yard touchdown pass. Eleven seconds gone, the Heisman debate was over, and Iowa was reeling. “He’s a great running back, everybody saw that today and everybody’s seen it all season long,” Iowa safety Jordan Lomax said On Stanford’s second possession, McCaffrey made more magic. He ran up the middle for five yards, right for 22 yards, left for 19 yards, caught a screen pass that he somehow turned into a dozen yards, ran a direct snap for seven yards, then watched Hogan finish the push with an eight-yard touchdown run. Dizzy yet? Less than four minutes into the game, McCaffrey was already the leader for Heisman Trophy voting for next year and, oh yeah, Iowa was done. “He makes people fall,” Hogan said. The kid wasn’t finished. At the start of the second quarter, McCaffrey caught a punt and juked about half of the population of Iowa City — including leaving Iowa’s Josey Jewell in a heap at midfield — en route to a 63-yard touchdown return. “He’s a guy who can move around you,” Jewell said later, shaking his head. By now, most folks were thinking that nothing could stop this kid, but it turns out, those folks were wrong. On Stanford’s next possession, McCaffrey danced 73 yards on yet another touchdown run, but it was nullified because of a needless holding call on Stanford’s Devon Cajuste. Yet McCaffrey kept falling forward, literally, showing the true meaning of the phrase “all-purpose,” by contributing to the Cardinals’ fifth touchdown by playing dead on the fake-fumbleturned-into-a-touchdown-pass. Now, one more time, about the lost Heisman trophy . “I play for my teammates, I play for God and my family,” McCaffrey said. “At the end of the day, whether I win anything or don’t, that’s the reason why I play and that keeps me motivated.” You hear that, America? He doesn’t really care if you’ve been watching. But now you have. And now you know.

Moving semis to New Year’s Eve a total flop By Paul Newberry Associated Press
IAMI — The College Football Playoff is a marvelous thing. The timing of the national semifinal
games? Boy, did they get that one wrong. The Orange Bowl, a matchup between topranked Clemson and No. 4 Oklahoma that kicked off in the late afternoon on New Year’s Eve, could’ve passed for an Alamo or Holiday Bowl. There simply wasn’t the sort of buzz one would expect from a game of that stature, which surely had a lot to do with a 4 p.m. EST starting time, when many people were just wrapping up their final work day of 2015. Ditto for the Cotton Bowl, which began shortly after Clemson finished off its 37-17 victory over the Sooners. While held in prime time, the game between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Michigan State was overshadowed by New Year’s celebrations around the country; in fact, the Tide’s 38-0 rout ended just minutes before the crystal ball dropped in Times Square. If that wasn’t enough of a downer, playing the semifinal games on Dec. 31 left what is traditionally the biggest day of the season — New Year’s Day — feeling like a bit of an afterthought, not all that different than staging the championship game in women’s basketball 24 hours after the men play for the title at the Final Four. The whole fabric of the college bowl season is out of whack. How are we supposed to get fired up for Rose, Sugar and Fiesta bowls when two more important games have already been held and most folks are now focused on the Jan. 11 national championship? This much is clear: the semifinal games should move back to New Year’s Day. The other major bowls should serve as worthy prelims, not meaningless consolations. Of course, the powers-that-be are refusing to acknowledge the obvious. This is, after all, the sport that nonsensically resisted a playoff until last season. Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff, said he would await the ratings for the New Year’s Day games before making any declarations on whether this worked. “It’s just not appropriate to talk until all the results are in,” he said Friday. “I guess it’s like asking a coach to talk about a whole game at halftime.” Well, let’s throw out the talking points we know so far. Start with ESPN’s performance on New Year’s Eve. It was downright abysmal. The Orange Bowl got a 9.1 rating, a plunge of 38.5 percent from last year’s Rose Bowl (14.8) held in the same afternoon time slot but on Jan. 1. The number of viewers fell even more — dropping 44.5 percent from 28,164,000 for the Rose to just 15,640,000 for the Orange, a staggering decline for such a high-profile event. The Cotton Bowl endured a similar nosedive. The 9.6 rating was down a whopping 36.8 percent from last year’s 15.2 for the Sugar Bowl in the same time slot, while the total viewership crashed 34.4 percent, going from 28,271,000 to 18,552,000. Of course, neither game was competitive, and that didn’t help. But there’s no way to sugarcoat this debacle. ESPN tried to make the best of the situation, pointing out that streaming views for the Orange and Cotton were up over last year’s games. But that was like Custer trying to put a positive spin on Little Bighorn. In all likelihood, that increase could be attributed largely to those who might’ve been fully-engaged viewers if not for the illadvised schedule. What makes all of this more infuriating is that ESPN recognized the ratings Armageddon it was facing. At least a year ago, the network suggested holding the semifinal games on Jan. 2, which falls on a Saturday. The College Football Playoff balked at that idea, not wanting to disrupt its plans to carve out a niche on New Year’s Eve. In retrospect, that decision is roughly akin to casting Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs. We all got punked. The semifinals games weren’t even a hit on social media. According to Nielsen, the Orange Bowl generated 487,000 tweets seen by 6.5 million people, a huge drop from what the Rose Bowl did a year ago: 2.6 million tweets viewed by 10.1 million people. The Orange Bowl took a similar hit compared to last season’s Sugar Bowl. But there was at least one positive to come out of this ratings fiasco. ABC — part of the Disney empire along with ESPN — made a desperate bid to get people to tune in, which might go down as the most hilarious attempt at product placement in broadcasting history. According to Deadspin, Wednesday’s episode of soap opera “General Hospital” made no less than seven references to the playoff, displayed the CFP logo prominently in the background of a scene, and even had some of the actors wearing T-shirts bearing the playoff motto “Who’s In?” Well, it didn’t work. Do us all a favor: Move these games back to New Year’s Day.

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott (15) gestures as he celebrates his fourth touchdown of the game against Notre Dame during the second half of Friday’s Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz.
Buckeyes top Irish in Fiesta Bowl Elliott scores 4 TDs as No. 7 Ohio State beats No. 8 Notre Dame 44-28 By John Marshall Associated Press
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Ezekiel Elliott bulldozed his way into the end zone in the first half, showing off his strength as Ohio State’s drive capper. He flashed his speed in the second, becoming the show stopper as he raced up the middle for a long run. Those skills should translate well in the NFL. They certainly worked out for the Buckeyes over the past three seasons. Elliott ran for 149 yards and matched a Fiesta Bowl record with four touchdowns to close the curtain on his college career, sparking No. 7 Ohio State’s prolific offense in a 44-28 win over Notre Dame on Friday. “With all due respect to all the other running backs in Ohio State history, my first-round draft pick, I’d pick Zeke Elliott,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. “He’s as good as any running back I’ve been around.” The Buckeyes (12-1) were left out of
the College Football Playoff thanks to an inopportune loss. They may leave the desert wondering what could have been after blowing past another lateseason playoff contender. Ohio State rolled past the Fighting Irish (10-3), quick-hitting its way to one scoring drive after another and 496 total yards. Elliott, who’s leaving school early for the NFL, scored on three short runs first half and left Notre Dame defenders flailing as he raced past them for a 47-yard score to open the second. J.T. Barrett gave the Buckeyes some balance, throwing for 211 yards and a score with 96 yards rushing in the highest-scoring game against Notre Dame’s defense this season. Ohio State’s seniors finished 50-4, tying the FBS record set by Boise State’s 2011 class for most wins in a four-year span. “It’s been a wild journey with this team, something I couldn’t even imagine,” Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple said.
The Fighting Irish had some good offensive moments behind DeShone Kizer after Buckeyes star defensive end Joey Bosa was ejected for targeting in the first quarter. They just couldn’t keep up with the blistering Buckeyes after a string of injuries, including do-everything linebacker Jaylon Smith. Smith, the Butkus Award winner as the nation’s best linebacker, had to be helped off four minutes into the first quarter after suffering what Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said was a significant leg injury. “The guy is so impactful on our defense,” Kelly said. “You lose a guy like that early on, it significantly affects what you’re doing defensively.” Bosa, projected as a top-10 NFL draft pick, was gone a few minutes later after driving the top of his helmet into the chest of Kizer, long after the Notre Dame quarterback had released the ball. “That was a kidney shot right there, but I guess it was the right call,” Meyer said.
Michigan routs Florida 41-7 in Citrus Bowl By Kyle Hightower Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. — Someone forgot to tell Michigan that this was supposed to be a struggle between defenses. Jake Rudock shrugged off an injury and threw for 278 yards and three touchdowns as No. 17 Michigan’s offense overwhelmed No. 19 Florida during a 41-7 victory Friday in the Citrus Bowl. “I would say this was the best game we’ve played all year,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen our offense play better. Our defense was magnificent. ... The three and outs, the stops, the play on third down, everybody playing great team defense. It was really good.” There were some questions surrounding how effective Rudock would be after he was knocked out of Michigan’s regular-season finale against Ohio State with a left shoulder injury. He dismissed any doubt about his health almost immediately in the Wolverines’ first bowl victory since 2012.

Michigan wide receiver Jehu Chesson (86) catches a pass in front of Florida defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III during the second half of the Friday’s Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
Michigan (10-3) had three touchdown drives of at least 70 yards and finished with 503 yards of offense against a Florida defense that entered the game ranked sixth nationally.
Rudock credited the coaching staff’s game plan and scouting efforts with putting him and his teammates in optimum situations. “We understood how they played — they play fast and they play physical,” Rudock said. “I had an easy job. I just had to get it out there to them.” He also had lots of support on the ground from tailback De’Veon Smith, who finished with 109 yards rushing. “We just came out there and competed today. It just shows that hard work pays off,” Smith said. Leading by 10 at halftime, Michigan scored on each of its first two possessions in the third quarter to take a 31-7 lead. Michigan’s defense played without safety Jabrill Peppers, who sat out with an undisclosed injury. But the Wolverines didn’t miss him, holding the Gators (10-4) to 28 total yards in the second half. “It was a case of getting your rump kicked in. That’s what it was,” Florida coach Jim McElwain said. “They really took it to us on both sides of the ball.”

Mississippi rolls to 48-20 win over Oklahoma St. in Sugar Bowl Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Chad Kelly threw for 302 yards and four touchdowns — three to Laquon Treadwell — and No. 16 Mississippi beat No. 13 Oklahoma State 48-20 in the Sugar Bowl on Friday night. Ole Miss (10-3) jumped out to a 34-6 lead by halftime, cruising up and down the field against an overwhelmed Oklahoma State defense. The onslaught was punctuated late in the second quarter when left tackle Laremy Tunsil had a 2-yard touchdown run on a trick play
after a lateral from Kelly. Oklahoma State (10-3) lost its final three games after 10 straight wins. The Cowboys fell into a 41-6 hole midway through the third quarter and never mounted a legitimate challenge. Mason Rudolph was 18 of 31 for 179 yards for Oklahoma State. Ole Miss outgained Oklahoma State 554-366 in total yards. The Cowboys eventually kicked a short field goal for a 3-0 lead. That was the end of the good news for the Cowboys, who were playing in the Sugar Bowl for the first time since
Outback Bowl Tennessee 45, No. 12 Northwestern 6 TAMPA, Fla. — Joshua Dobbs threw for 166 yards and ran for two touchdowns, helping Tennessee cap its best season in eight years with a victory over Northwestern in the Outback Bowl. Dobbs scored on runs 14 and 18 yards, and Jalen Hurd ran for 130 yards and one touchdown for the Volunteers (9-4). They finished with at least nine wins for the first time since 2007. Northwestern (10-3) failed in a bid to finish with a school-record 11 victories.

Today’s highlight: On Jan. 2, 1900, U.S. Secretary of State John Hay announced the “Open Door Policy” to facilitate trade with China. On this date: In 1788, Georgia became the fourth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. In 1935, Bruno Hauptmann went on trial in Flemington, New Jersey, on charges of kidnapping and murdering the 20-month-old son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh. (Hauptmann was found guilty, and executed.) In 1942, the Philippine capital of Manila was captured by Japanese forces during World War II. In 1960, Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts launched his successful bid for the presidency. In 1974, President Richard Nixon signed legislation requiring states to limit highway speeds to 55 miles an hour as a way of conserving gasoline in the face of an OPEC oil embargo. (The 55 mph limit was effectively phased out in 1987; federal speed limits were abolished in 1995.) In 1991, Sharon Pratt was sworn in as mayor of Washington, D.C., becoming the first black woman to head a city of Washington’s size and prominence.

Man without kids gets no respect from some parents Dear Abby: I’m a gay man in my late 40s who has worked for 10 years in the public school system with young adults and kids with special needs. I have done everything from changing preschoolers’ diapers, to tutoring, travel training and teaching life skills to older children. In the process, I have encountered my share of cooperation, defiance, failure and success. When speaking with family, friends or strangers about their parenting, I sometimes share my experiences. This is usually accepted and even encouraged, but occasionally I am put in my place by a parent who feels I must be told that what I’ve done “isn’t the same as being a parent.” Some even go so far as to imply that I should remain silent, as I have nothing of a parenting nature to offer. I would think that making everyone feel included would be more important than official parent status, especially when discussing similar experiences. So what’s the best way to handle this? I have no kids of my own; my students are all I have to share stories about. Should I just dummy up? — Sort Of Childless In San Francisco Dear Sort Of Childless: No, but recognize that whatever you offered clearly made someone defensive. When people are in that mode, they aren’t receptive to your opinion. Remember the phrase “casting pearls before swine”? It means offering something valuable to those who don’t understand that it’s precious. You and I, and most parents, understand that you are rich in experience. Don’t let the others get RIP HAYWIRE

DEAR ABBY under your skin. Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Richard,” is 15 years my senior, and the more he is involved in my life, the more overprotective he is becoming. Some of his concerns are legitimate, but it seems like he considers me more like a child or “little woman” than his equal partner. He isn’t comfortable with me walking two blocks from my house to a friend’s house at night without an escort. I recently obtained my motorcycle license, and he doesn’t want me riding at night. The latest issue is that he doesn’t want me to walk him to his car because he would “rather me be locked safely in the house.” I think I’m capable enough to cross my front lawn at night without being attacked. How do I differentiate between legitimate concern and overprotective paranoia? — Overprotected Dear Overprotected: If your neighborhood is safe, then this may be a question of how your boyfriend is presenting his concerns to you. If he is SUGGESTING that he would prefer you be more cautious after dark, that’s one thing. However, if he’s INSISTING, then it’s something else, and it could be a tip-off that he’s not only “parental,” but controlling. Universal Uclick

live within your means. Plan to sell things you no longer need. Stop paying for others â€” your generosity will hold you back. â˜…â˜…â˜… LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Think matters through and make things happen. This is a year to leap into action, not to procrastinate. Discuss your plans with someone you love and respect. A change of heart will help you move on. Itâ€™s time to strive for perfection. â˜…â˜…â˜… SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Reconnect with people from your past, and youâ€™ll discover that you have more in common with others than you realize. A little teamwork will help you get projects off the ground as well as build a strong foundation for a bright and prosperous future. â˜…â˜…â˜… SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take a moment to soul-search. Question your motives and consider what others have contributed to your life. Itâ€™s time to weed out the people and possessions that are no longer of use to you. New beginnings will require you to make hard choices. â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home. Donâ€™t get involved in senseless arguments that no one can win. Focus on opportunities and positive action instead of negativity. Donâ€™t pay for someone elseâ€™s mistakes. Someone from your past will be a poor influence. â˜…â˜… AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Bring about the personal changes youâ€™ve been contemplating. Whether itâ€™s a change to your surroundings or updating your appearance, it will give you the boost you need to go after your dreams wholeheartedly. Love is in the stars. â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Donâ€™t let anyone put demands on you or expect you to take care of responsibilities that arenâ€™t yours. Personal problems with a lover, friend or relative will lead to uncertainty. Donâ€™t overreact or regret will follow. â˜…â˜…â˜…

Happy Birthday: Youâ€™ll face opposition this year, making it important that you are organized and detailed every step of the way. Donâ€™t leave anything to chance or rely on others to do things for you. Take control and steer clear of joint ventures. Your numbers are 7, 16, 23, 28, 30, 33, 41. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Appreciate the people you love and enjoy spending time with. The little things you share will help you build a stronger relationship and a brighter future. Make planning your vacation a priority. â˜…â˜…â˜… TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do your own research and save time. Donâ€™t let peer pressure force you into something you know little about. Do what you feel most comfortable doing regardless of what everyone else chooses to do. â˜…â˜…â˜… GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may not have as much in your bank account as you think. You are best to go over your personal papers and find out exactly where you stand. Donâ€™t create new problems when you need to resolve matters that you left unfinished. â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… CANCER (June 21-July 22): Time spent at home or with someone you love will lead to some interesting and unique plans for the upcoming year. Being honest about what you want to see happen will help you find middle ground with others. â˜…â˜… LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Size up your situation and prepare to bring about the changes that will make this a stellar year.

THE DAILY HERALD
2016 | MEETING YOUR GOALS
Greeting the New Year with resolve THINKSTOCK
What’s your motivation? Meaningful incentives will trump a mountain of good intentions
CATHERINE BONGIORNO FITNESS
Three keys to a workout you will stick with
tarting January 1st, I am working out seven days a week to lose this weight, come hell or high water.” “Time to dust off my treadmill and climb back on it. Damn, I hate that contraption.” “It’s the New Year. I guess I’ll join the gym again. Maybe I’ll lift some weights while I’m there, or run around the track. I wonder what burns the most calories?” Sound familiar? These are sentiments I often hear at the start of the new year. Most of them conveyed with a mixture of desperation, fear and dread. For many people, working out conjures up memories of boredom, confusion, embarrassment, even pain. See FITNESS, Page D5
nce again, it’s that time of year. On New Year’s Eve, when the clock struck midnight, a new year was born. When I woke up on Friday morning, was I reborn? Sadly, I am still a somewhat paunchy (although I have great muscle definition underneath all of that fat!), balding, middle-age guy, with a bunch of good and bad habits. Despite 2015’s good intentions, I didn’t change much over the past year. Sigh .… New Year’s resolutions have fallen out of favor, largely because most adults fail miserably at keeping them. Newly acquired treadmills, stair steppers, and rowing machines become clothes hangers by March. By June, they are on Craigslist. Or worse, they are collecting dust in an over-stuffed garage. Why do most New Year’s resolutions fail? Motivation for change doesn’t correspond with the turning of the calendar. Just because 2016 started Friday doesn’t mean I’m ready to shed the weight I gained last year. Sure,
PAUL SCHOENFELD FAMILY TALK I have been thinking about losing those five pounds (OK, closer to 10 pounds) for six months. Why not get serious now? Great idea! But do I have the motivation to sustain the effort? That’s the 10-pound question. Researchers tell us that motivation for change entails a simple formula: Incentives for change have to be twice as great as the reasons for staying the same. Well, let’s see. I want to look better in a bathing suit this summer, have looser jeans and be healthier. On the plump side, I like ice cream, so changing eating habits seems like climbing Mount Everest, and I’m already pretty healthy despite my extra pounds.
Hmm. That’s three pros and three cons for my New Year’s diet. I need a few more reasons to lose weight. Furthermore, social scientists throw in a kicker concept: How much do I believe I can lose those 10 pounds and keep them off? Don’t ask — I have lost and gained a thousand pounds over the last 20 years. Motivation for change is born from the dynamic interplay of incentives, barriers, and beliefs about my ability to achieve my goals. It makes New Year’s resolutions look like taking a New Year’s swim in the Puget Sound. So what can we do after the confetti is gone? Pick one goal you would like to accomplish this next year. Be modest. You are more likely to be successful if you keep it small, simple and singular. Focus on changing one behavior. “I will spend more time playing with my kids. I will spend more time with my partner (remember date nights?) I will be more patient with my teen when she argues with me about curfew. I will have more meals at home. See RESOLVE, Page D6
Give your lungs a chance. Lung cancer is most treatable when you catch it early. If you’re older than 55 and were, or are, a long-time smoker, we recommend getting a low-dose CT scan to screen for the disease. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death – but a low-dose CT scan can help prevent a deadly diagnosis.
Get screened. It could save your life. Call 425-297-LUNG (5864) to find out if you qualify or to learn more. Providence.org/HealthyLungsNW This screening is a covered benefit for individuals with Medicare Part B, up to age 77.

Take a load off with a visit to a podiatrist WHAT TO EXPECT
By Quinn Russell Brown Special to The Herald
If you can make somebody’s mechanics and posture more efficient, then theoretically you should be able to slow bad progressions down. It’s kind of like a buyingtime mode.
Dr. Edward Chesnutis Podiatrist with clinics in Silver Lake and Seattle
Do your body a favor and start the new year on the right foot. Or the left one, if the right one’s too sore. Whether you stand all day, bounce around a basketball court at night or squeeze into heels on the weekend, it might be smart to step into a podiatrist’s office in 2016. “Right now, there are a lot of bad feet out there,” said Dr. Edward Chesnutis, a podiatrist with clinics in Silver Lake and Seattle. More than 75 percent of Americans experience foot pain, but less than a third of those afflicted say they would consider visiting a podiatrist, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. As much as we rely on cars, buses, elevators and whatever carries us around, it’s impossible to get from A to B without hoofing it. “Your foot is your foundation, and it’s basically your transportation,” said Chesnutis, who treats twisted ankles, crooked toes, spurred heels and — close your eyes if you’re squeamish — crumbly fungal nails. Podiatrists see patients from all walks — and limps — of life: pigeon-toed toddlers, aching ballerinas, concrete-treading Costco workers, diabetics with nerve damage and teenagers whose stinky shoes aren’t allowed past the front porch. Genetics shape your sole. Some people are born with flatter feet, others with higher arches. But you don’t inherit foot problems, Chesnutis said, you
inherit the form of the foot. If Mom and Grandma had bunions — swollen bumps on the inside of the foot — that doesn’t mean bunions are hereditary, it means the bone structure is, and that structure can be prone to bunions. Throbbing feet aren’t inevitable. “If you can make somebody’s mechanics and posture more efficient, then theoretically you should be able to slow bad progressions down,” Chesnutis said. “It’s kind of like a buying-time mode.” Your shoes matter just as much as your genes. Illfitting footwear, especially high heels, are to blame for many podiatry visits. “Humans are notorious for not wearing shoes that fit right,” said Jo Mitchell, the office manager at Chesnutis’ Silver Lake clinic. “We go for either style or
price factor. They don’t necessarily fit correctly, which causes foot issues, which causes knee issues, which causes hip issues and back issues.” Shop smart. First, get your foot measured — both length and width. “The width can be super important if you have a predisposition to bunions, or crooked toes,” Chesnutis said. There’s no standardization in the shoe industry — one company’s 8 is another company’s 7.5 — so try before you buy and be wary of shopping online for shoes. “You’re taking a risk,” Chesnutis advised. “Now, have I done it? Yes, I have. I’ve gone to Johnston & Murphy and lucked it. It’s buyer beware.” And one pair might not be enough. “If you wear a pair of shoes today, especially in the Pacific
Northwest, they’re probably going to get wet,” he said, noting that damp shoes and socks can lead to conditions like athlete’s foot. “It’s good if you give them a 24-hour period to dry out.” What’s harder than falling in love with a pair that fits right? Getting rid of them. “People have a tendency to hang on to shoes too long,” said Chesnutis. After a year, shoes can lose their shock absorption and develop an abnormal lean. Chesnutis said women are more willing than men to make appointments. “Sometimes it’s like pulling teeth. I’ve had guys who come in and say to me, ‘The only reason I’m here is because my wife made me come in.’ ” One example: A patient who stepped in a pothole while running to catch a bus. An X-ray revealed that
he had snapped a bone. “His jaw dropped,” Chesnutis recalled. “He said, ‘You know what? I owe my wife an apology.’ ” As far as prevention goes, ease into workout programs rather than diving in. And don’t neglect hygiene — clean between your toes and try to trim your nails straight across rather than in an arch. Stiff in the morning? Write the ABCs with your toes before you roll out of bed. To a certain extent, just do what works for you. “We have patients who put duct tape on callouses,” Mitchell said. “It works for them.” Still, home remedies are no answer for all problems, she said, especially if you need to serious treatment or surgery. Check what your insurance covers. When you need a podiatist, someone else might foot the bill.

Enjoy your veggies during winter
Take time to do it today ... By Barbara Quinn The Monterey County Herald
HEATHER SNIVELY ASK A NUTRITIONIST
t’s the time of year when fresh produce prices jump and you might wonder how to stay within a budget without sacrificing health and quality. There are great options for vegetables during winter months that aren’t expensive but deliver good nutritional value.
Fresh or frozen? Frozen vegetables seem to have gotten a bad rap. Many people think frozen vegetables have fewer nutrients than fresh vegetables — not true! The riper a vegetable becomes, the more vitamins and minerals it contains and thus the more nutritious it is. Fresh vegetables must be picked before they are entirely ripe in order to increase their shelf-life, which also prevents bruising during transportation to stores. This long process results in prolonged exposure to cold, heat and light and consequentially, a loss of vitamins sensitive to these environmental factors such as vitamins C and B1 (thiamin). Frozen vegetables are picked when ripe, which optimizes the nutrients in the vegetables and the freezing process slows or stops the loss of nutrients. So, if you are trying to decide between an out-of season vegetable from the produce section or the frozen food aisle, save money and get frozen veggie packed nutrients while you’re at it.
What’s out there You know that fresh ears of corn aren’t likely to appear on your produce aisle now, but plenty of tasty winter veggie options await. It depends on the region where you live, as well as weather conditions. Look at the acompanying list of the vegetables that can generally be found fresh in our area’s grocery stores, grown in the United States during winter. You’ll notice root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, turnips — which are great when roasted. No matter what vegetables you choose during winter months, fresh, frozen or canned, remember to eat them and enjoy them.

I was going through a stash of stationary and came across two cards I had intended to send to each of my sisters someday. It stung to realize that it’s too late to send one of those cards; my sister, Lynda passed away last month. And I was reminded again — no matter how busy I get — to turn those “someday” plans into what I can do today. This applies to lifestyle and nutrition as much as it does to relationships. Today when I shop for groceries, I will put one green and one red or orange vegetable into my basket. Today I will actually prepare and eat them. Today I will fill a large water bottle and make sure it is empty by the end of the day. Today I will only eat a snack if I feel hungry, not if I feel bored. Today I will not beat myself up if I eat a Christmas cookie with my granddaughter. (I will think twice about eating six Christmas cookies, however.) Today I will set aside 30 minutes to take that walk I intended to take someday. Today I will make sure I have something more substantial for breakfast besides coffee and a Christmas cookie. I will actually take the time to open a carton of Greek yogurt and sprinkle some nuts and granola on top. Today I will lighten up — my attitude as well as my portion sizes. And I will send that card to my other sister. Quinn is a diabetes educator at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

Worse is when we finally muster up the courage and willpower to exercise, only to achieve minimal results. What are we doing wrong? First, we must recognize that exercise needs to be a lifelong commitment, not a brief endeavor at the start of each year. There are three key components to starting an exercise program and sticking with it past Jan. 14th Effectiveness: When I was 18, I joined a health club, 20 pounds overweight and unhappy about it. Clueless, I sputtered about the gym, did a few biceps curls, hopped in and out of the adductor machine, did 50 crunches, and finally planted my glutes on a stationary bike for 15 minutes. My bold launch into exercise lasted barely a month before I said, “To hell with this,” and drowned my sorrow in a large Frosty at Wendy’s (conveniently located next door to the gym.) I had no idea how to exercise effectively, and in frustration, threw in the workout towel. Don’t let this be you. You need a solid workout plan. Hire a trainer, buy some workout DVDs, or read literature on how to create your own workouts. Learn proper form and technique, and design a program that builds muscle and burns calories. If you are not confident and knowledgeable in what you are doing, you won’t see results and therefore will not stick with it. Enjoyment: I can hear you all the way from my place squawking that you detest exercise – and I used to be right there with you. I once made the commitment to use the elliptical machine regularly after
work, never mind that it bored me to tears. Each day, I dreaded the impending workout like I would a tooth extraction. Is it any wonder I quit after just 10 days? If you’re going to stick with your workouts, you have to enjoy them ... or at least, not hate them. If you like social support, partner up with a buddy. If you come alive in nature, exercise outside. Competitive? Take up a team sport. Try a variety of exercise classes to see what you like. The choices are dizzying, and until you’ve tried all 200 or more formats, the “I hate exercise” sentiment is officially off the table. Patience: We spend years, even decades putting on the extra pounds, yet we want them gone by Tuesday. If we don’t see results within two weeks of starting a workout routine, we quit. We have to be realistic and patient when it comes to changing the size and shape of our bodies. Visible results take time. Start at a slow-to-moderate pace and let your body get familiar with what you are asking it to do. Don’t go from couch potato to twohour workouts, seven days a week. That will only result in exhaustion, burnout, even injury. Once you’ve given yourself time to adjust to exercise, you can and should progress, as the body is quick to adapt. If you are squatting the same 10-pound dumbbells you used eight weeks ago, you are no longer building muscle. Grab a pair of 12s. Up the tempo a notch on the treadmill or throw in some intervals. Progress your workout, and your body will follow suit. Have a happy, strong, active New Year and life.

Fellowship of friendly runners Parkrun isn’t just exercise, it’s an international movement Mike Plunkett
Parkrun is a weekly, timed 5K event. Participants register once, enabling them to run at any Parkun in the world. The goal: Do your best and have fun. It’s not a race with medals and celebratory drinks (other than perhaps a post-Parkrun coffee). And Parkrun is always free. The emphasis is on allowing anyone to participate. The key is to “tap into that source of motivation for people” who might otherwise have a hard time sticking to a fitness routine, said Henry Wigglesworth, director of the D.C. Parkrun. “We make it so it’s low-key: no barriers, no entry fee, no real planning needed. Just show up.” Parkrun events have grown organically throughout the United Kingdom and nine other countries, but the organization wants to make a strategic effort to expand the runs in the United States. Max Metcalfe, the organizer of the Crissy Field Parkrun in San Francisco, said that about 25 runners have attended weekly
The Washington Post
In 2004, Paul SintonHewitt invited his friends to join him on a 5K run through a park in a London suburb. The run was a way for Sinton-Hewitt to get through a series of unfortunate events: a job loss, a relationship breakdown, an injury. That day’s gathering inspired Parkrun, which aims to bring people together. At first, it comprised Sinton-Hewitt’s immediate circle of active friends. But Parkrun has now evolved into a worldwide movement, taking place in 11 countries, with 2 million registered runners and about 125,000 runners and 10,000 volunteers participating per week. “When I started it, it was strictly about the running. But now I realize this is about rebuilding society, rebuilding communities. I never claimed to create anything, but I wanted to enhance connections,” Sinton-Hewitt said. Parkrun officials want to bring more such events to the United States, including an upcoming run in Washington, D.C.

since the Parkrun started a year ago, and that he’s hopeful more Parkruns will pop up in the Bay Area. Wigglesworth, a lawyer, took part in his first Parkrun while visiting friends in Nottingham, England, last summer. He was struck by the competitive yet friendly nature of the runners, who would encourage him as they were trying to run faster than he was. “I thought, ‘Wow, this is really kind of different.’ The fact that the guy who beat me turned around and gave me encouragement in the middle of the race really struck me,” Wigglesworth said. Thinking Parkrun would be a good fit for Washington D.C., Wigglesworth contacted Sinton-Hewitt, who put him in touch with other interested Washington-area residents. With a community grant nd a permit from the National Park Service, the group has organized the city’s first Parkrun along the city’s C&O Canal towpath. Julie Messina was in graduate school in Brighton, England, in 2009 when she heard about
Parkrun. She said the first 5K was a rough go, but she got better and was hooked. “I very quickly saw the importance of Parkrun and what it can do for individuals and communities,” Messina said. “My husband and I were talking about moving back to the States, and I realized I wasn’t willing to let Parkrun disappear from my life.” Messina and her husband, a native Yorkshireman, began the Durham, N.C., Parkrun in the summer of 2013. Her goal is to help fellow runners get to know one another and to gain confidence, just as she gained at the Brighton Parkrun. “I wanted to be able to reach those runners who are less confident and give them a free and accessible way to try out what feels like a race but really isn’t a race,” Messina said. Metcalfe said about 90 percent of the runners at the San Francisco Parkrun have been non-Americans who participated in the event in their home country. This is what organizers have begun to call “Parkrun tourism.”

I will bring my lunch to work. I will get a massage once a month. I will eat more vegetables at dinner. I will walk two times a week. Make it achievable, feasible and realistic. Make a plan. Keeping it short and simple is not enough. How will you handle challenges that rise up and stare your conviction in the face? Will you remember your affirmation next week when you get busy? Write your goal on a 3-by-5 card and post it on your bathroom mirror so that you won’t forget it in the heat of the moment. Every morning and night reaffirm your intention. Make it a yearlong undertaking. Plan on taking a year to make this one change. It will take you that long to make it a habit. A slip is not a fall. If you miss your walk this week, don’t abandon your goal. If you yell at your kiddo, don’t throw in the towel. If you miss a date night two weeks in a row, don’t throw your resolution out of the window. If you fall off your New Year’s horse, get back on it.

Signs a child’s ready for the potty
By Dr. Susana Myers and Dr. Aisha Reuler
certain medical conditions or developmental delays may be embarking on toilet training at even older ages.
The Everett Clinic
By the time children reach their second and third years of life, the daunting task of getting them out of diapers and transitioning to using the toilet has probably made it onto their parents’ to-do list. Children may be ready for toilet training if they: ■ Can express interest in toilet training ■ Demonstrate independence and use the word “no” ■ Can follow simple instructions ■ Are dry at least two hours
Toilet training 101: Aisha Reuler
at a time during the day or after naps ■ Have recognizable cues that they are about to urinate or have a bowel movement. ■ Can walk to the bathroom, sit, and pull clothes up and down independently. ■ Keep in mind that it can be normal for some children to be ready later than this and children with
■ Make a plan. Decide when and how you want to start, how to handle accidents, and when to back off (i.e. illness, arrival of a new sibling, toilet training resistance). Discuss your plan with your child-care providers. ■ Take it slow. Mastering the various steps of potty training can take a few days to a few months. Let your child take his or her time, moving from one stage to the next at their own pace. ■ Buy the right equipment.
Buy a floor level potty training chair that allows your child’s feet to touch the floor when sitting down on it. ■ Practice. Have your child practice sitting on the chair. Watch for signs of needing to use the bathroom — such as holding the genital area or pulling at pants. ■ Motivate your child. Use gentle reminders and encouragement. If your child uses the potty, make sure to offer rewards like treats, stickers and plenty of praise and hugs. ■ Transition when ready. Once your child is using the potty training chair, introduce loose fitting underwear he or she can easily pull up and down by
themself. Once you start your child in underwear, use diapers only for naps, bedtime or when traveling. Remember, it’s a process. It’s likely your toddler will have many accidents before being completely potty trained. Avoid getting angry, yelling or punishing. If your child starts to resist at any step, it’s OK to back off and try again in a few weeks. If it continues to be a struggle, or if you have questions about the process, talk to your pediatrician. Myers and Reuler are board-certified pediatricians with The Everett Clinic’s Harbour Pointe pediatrics team.
Don’t let disease be one of your travel memories By Emily Sohn Washington Post
R.D. Zimmerman had been to northern Africa and the Caribbean, spent time in Russia, and visited Mexico. But a couple of weeks after returning home to Minneapolis from a visit to Cabo, on the southern tip of Baja California, he developed a persistent cough that landed him in the ER with hepatitis A. Caused by a virus, the contagious liver disease is easily preventable with a vaccine — which Zimmerman, who is 63, didn’t realize he had neglected to get. His last round of shots had been in 1994, before the hep A vaccine became available, and he hadn’t thought to check since then if he was up-to-date.
Should-have vaccines About a dozen vaccines might show up on your to-do list. The most common are: ■ Hepatitis A ■ Diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP), which protects against bacteria that can enter through open wounds and requires a booster every 10 years. ■ Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) ■ Chickenpox (varicella) ■ Polio ■ An annual flu shot Neither did his doctors or his spouse, who soon came down with hep A, too. At its most severe, the disease can cause jaundice, fever, diarrhea and even death. Recovery can take months, as it did for Zimmerman. It’s impossible to know how many people contract vaccine-preventable-
diseases while traveling internationally each year, in part because diseases such as hep A have weeks-long incubation periods and can also be acquired at home. But anecdotal evidence suggests that Zimmerman’s experience is common, says Greg Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group in
Rochester, Minn. He sees patients every week who come home from trips with illnesses they could have avoided, including hep A, which often comes from consuming contaminated food or water. “Hepatitis A is the poster child for what happens in Mexico,” Poland says, adding that it’s one of numerous diseases that are frequently picked up abroad. “Most people will tell you they weren’t aware they were going to some place that had a larger risk,” adds Andrew Pekosz, a virologist at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. Retirement is a popular time to hit the road and see the world, but travelers face new health concerns once they hit their 60s. Because immunity tends
to drop over time, symptoms are often more severe and complications more common as people age, especially if they have heart disease, diabetes or other conditions. Vaccines also become less effective about age 65, but because recovery is tougher, immunizations become especially important. At least two or three months before a trip, it pays to find out which vaccines are recommended for where you’re traveling and whether there are any contraindications with medications you might be taking, experts advise. Planning is important because some vaccines, including hep A, involve more than one dose, spaced months apart, and it may take weeks before a shot offers protection.
Resolve: Set goals that are realistic
The Daily Herald
TALKING THE TALK
Guys shamed by their own breasts Dear Straight Talk: Your recent column about girls worried about being flatchested compares nothing to the troubles for guys who are not. Guys with sizable breasts are among the most persecuted in high school. I was a chubby kid and my “moobs” came on during puberty. Even though I’ve lost most of the weight, the moobs remain. Guys grab them, call me names (including in front of “blind” teachers), and mock me online. Girls laugh at me, too. (I now understand how women feel objectified with guys assuming the right to grab or talk about their bodies.) Most guys with gynecomastia have too much shame to ask for surgery. My stepfather bullies me over it. Most of us avoid athletics, collapse our posture, or eat to escape. Brian, 17, Eugene, Oregon Breele, 21, Los Angeles, California: I owe you an apology. In eighth grade, a boy had breast buds and another guy commented (to us both) that his boobs were bigger than mine and we both laughed at him. I’m so ashamed — I’ve got the worst stomach churn right now.
LAUREN FORCELLA STRAIGHT TALK Today, I’d rather be a loner if being cruel is what occupies people’s minds. Millions of men have surgery for gynecomastia so do not be ashamed about it. Get a job, save money and over the summer before college, start a new life! Use this time for self-development. Read the news, take up fencing or another athletic skill, dump video games. After surgery, your skill set and interesting mind will further your confidence. What will other kids add to their résumé? Bad habits and knocking people? Samantha, 23, Toledo, Ohio: I’m sorry for the ridicule you face and am disgusted by the bullying. Are they unaware of its connection to depression and suicide? I encourage you to find someone kind and trusting to talk
to — the school counselor, for one. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself. My boyfriend is down on himself because he feels overweight and has moobs. I’m always telling him to love himself. He still takes his shirt off, runs and swims. He’s got enough trust to share his insecurities with me and enough confidence to not care what others think. Fake it till you make it. Elle, 19, Boca Raton, Florida: I suggest joining an online support group for gynecomastia and a youth group, even if you’re not religious. Most are supportive and uplifting with leaders trained in empowering young adults. Taking positive action really helps. Victors take action, victims remain inert. Meghan, 19, State College, Pennsylvania: I’m one of those flat-chested girls who felt bad about herself. The struggle ultimately strengthened me, but I’m ashamed to say that during my insecure years, I probably snickered and commented about your condition. In high school everyone is so unhappy with their bodies they belittle others
to feel better. The adults you describe remained juveniles. Make a plan. What is best for you? Standing up to your peers, stepdad, the sophomoric teachers, and/or ignoring them all and getting surgery on your own terms? You have a life ahead of you. Dear Brian: Self-development and a positive action plan will boost mental health; I hope the panelists’ ideas are helpful. A full 36 percent of teen boys have gynecomastia. In 75 percent of cases, it goes away by adulthood as estrogen drops off. For those with severe cases, society is cruel and I support you in getting the simple, permanent gynecomastia surgery. If you can bear it, ask your mom or bio-father privately for surgery; it is often covered by insurance. Until then, or you get surgery on your own, meeting with the school counselor will further raise self-esteem from the inside — and wearing a compression shirt will from the outside. — Lauren StraightTalkAdvice.org, is a youth-helping-youth nonprofit.
Desire to deny health problems robs us of the support we need By Adam Baer
There’s no need to insist that ‘everything will return to normal,’ whether you’re a patient or a member of a patient’s support system. Chronic illness is normal. those who tell us how to feel, or asking for help and company. This is our chance to share the disconcerting notion that we don’t yet know how we’ll go on, even if that means putting everyone around us in mind of their mortality. Promising to “recover” masks the reality that recovering from a medical problem today doesn’t mean what our outdated dictionaries say it does, what with mysterious late effects from treatments and additional medical problems caused by the first ones. Guaranteeing to “get well” similarly reinforces the notion that health is a binary, with sickness on one side and wellness on the other. Is it? Doctors increasingly diagnose conditions precancerous, pre-diabetic, pre-bad, and everyone’s health is constantly fluctuating, like one’s pulse or blood pressure. Cells change every second, and just because you’ve never had a body part scanned doesn’t mean you’re not undergoing negative biological transitions. Consider how many serious medical conditions are discovered by accident after a routine exam. Just
as we speak about “neurodiversity,” the concept that a society of people with different neurological makeups is normal, so too should we accept and defend “health diversity.” There’s no need to insist that “everything will return to normal,” whether you’re a patient or a member of a patient’s support system. Chronic illness is normal. We have to get cozy with that notion and keep the medically stained from feeling cast out from society, left to wince and wonder in private until they’re ready for some grand reemergence. I’ve met people who view the ill as burdens on our health-care system, on a company’s productivity,
on a family’s savings. It’s opinions like these that push patients to reassert their so-called normalcy and present inflated optimism. The pressure to report that you’re OK when others check in with you is so strong — who has time for a real conversation today, especially one about something so unpleasant? that many chronically and invisibly ill people fail to find the support they need. Even for the most genetically lucky (show me someone whose life will never be touched by serious illness) there are benefits to supporting authentic discussions about doleful diagnoses. Just as we work to remain mindful of what to do in an era rife with terrorism, so should we toughen up to medical reality. There’s power in understanding that good health is necessarily temporary, a subjective goal, while uncertain health is permanent.
Diabetes patients widely burdened by excessive testing Mayo Clinic News Network In a study released online in December, researchers from Mayo Clinic report a national trend toward overtesting glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) levels in adult patients with Type 2 diabetes. Overtesting causes redundancy and waste says the study team, adding unnecessary costs and time burden for patients and providers. In addition, excessive testing can result in overtreatment with hypoglycemic drugs, adding additional cost and potential health complications. The best approaches to Type 2 diabetes monitoring and treatment are not well defined by professional societies and regulatory bodies. While lower thresholds of testing frequencies often are discussed, the upper boundaries are rarely mentioned. Yet, most agree that for adult patients who are not using insulin, have stable glycemic control within the recommended targets and have no history of severe hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, checking once or twice a year should be enough. In practice, there is a much higher prevalence of excess testing. “Our findings are concerning, especially as we focus more on improving the value of care we deliver to our patients ” says Dr. Rozalina McCoy, a Mayo Clinic primary
care physician and endocrinologist who was the study’s lead investigator. “As providers, we must be ever vigilant to provide the right testing and treatment to our patients at the right times — both for their well-being and to ensure the best value in the health care we provide.” The investigators believe this study provides definitive evidence of such excess testing, after examining a national sample of 31,545 nonpregnant adults with controlled noninsulintreated Type 2 diabetes. Approximately 55 percent of patients in this cohort achieved and maintained the recommended level of less than 7 percent glycated hemoglobin and were tested three or four times a year. Six percent were tested five or more times. McCoy notes that there are a number of potential reasons for high rates of testing. “Potential reasons for more frequent testing include clinical uncertainty; misunderstanding of the nature of the test (and) not realizing that HbA1C represents a three-month average of glycemic control; or a desire for diagnostic and management thoroughness,” she says. Other times, it may be the result of fragmentation of care (because a patient has more than one unconnected provider); the need to fulfill regulatory demands, such as public reporting of performance metrics; or internal tracking systems.

A colleague recently announced that he’d been diagnosed with a lifethreatening cancer. Don’t worry, he wrote. He would fight. He promised to recover. As a survivor of multiple cancers and rare diseases, I’ve had to write my fair share of group emails alerting friends and family to medical news. So I understand the impulse to sound upbeat. Diagnosis emails and social-media posts are now a genre with set tropes and expected turns of phrase. We swear we’ll morph into rays of light during the darkest times in our lives. We vow to battle our infirmities — as if that were possible beyond seeking treatment — and to become “well again.” We do this because we want to shelter ourselves from fear as much as we want to bolster the spirits of our loved ones. We may also feel the need to run damage control and manage ourselves like brands, lest we alienate fair-weather friends or fail to reduce the professional harm that reports of serious illness may bring. When I graduated from college, my parents told me never to disclose my cancer history to colleagues or employers. They understood on an intuitive level what a recent article in the journal Cancer confirmed: Two years after a diagnosis, cancer survivors earn 40 percent less. By year five, they still haven’t made it back to their original salaries. Despite these statistics, and despite the debatable power of positive thinking (I’m an optimist with a taste for facts) I resist the social pressure to project exaggerated good cheer in the face of medical uncertainty. If we deserve anything after a grim doctor’s visit, it’s the uncommon chance to be authentic, even if that means remaining reticent, sobbing uncontrollably, attempting jokes that are mordant at best, ignoring

Caregivers can take a break with Rosewood Courte
t this time of year, people often make resolutions to take better care of themselves. But caregivers with loved ones suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other memory issues may find that difficult. It’s not always easy to find the time to take care of yourself when you have a loved one relying on you for their constant care. Just finding an hour to run down to the gym can be impossible. That is one of the reasons why Rosewood Courte Memory Care in Edmonds offers short-stay, drop-in services to help those caring for someone at home. Caregivers can drop their loved ones off at Rosewood Courte for a stay of less than an hour up to several hours making it easy to go to the gym, a doctor appointment or simply get a much-needed nap. There is no long-term commitment tied to this day-stay service. You can use it just once, as needed or set up something on a regular basis. An appointment isn’t necessary. Drop-in care hours are between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. Longer short-term stays of up to 30 days are also possible. These are designed to help caregivers when they need a longer break or go out-of-town. There is peace of mind knowing your loved one is safe and being well cared for when you can’t be there yourself. Rosewood Courte is both a residential as well as a short-stay memory care community. It received a coveted deficiency-free survey in the state of Washington’s rigorous survey process that evaluates all state-licensed assisted living facilities every 12 to 18 months. There is a 24-hour, on-site, licensed nursing staff available to oversee patient care and every member of Rosewood Courte’s staff has been specially trained to understand the challenges faced by memory care patients and their caregivers. For example, the staff knows that

day stays at Rosewood Courte can be an opportunity for the person struggling with memory care issues to have a little break too. The community offers a great activity schedule for residents as well as the opportunity to move freely in a safe environment. The community and its grounds were specially designed to allow this freedom of movement. Residents can independently stroll yet still be secure. This may be less restrictive than what they are used to at home. These are just a few of the features that
have led families to choose the Rosewood Courte community, both for short-term stays and when full-time residential care is finally needed. It’s a sad fact that most people struggling with memory care issues will eventually need the full-time, 24-hour care a community like Rosewood Courte can offer. It has been estimated that up to 60 percent of the long-term-care patients at Rosewood Courte start in the day program before later becoming full-time residents. But using short-term-stay services can
ease that transition. The staff try to help the caregiver to free themselves of the guilt and sadness often associated with such a move and encourages them to continue to take an active role in the care of their loved one once they become a resident. For more information about Rosewood Courte and its services or to check for residential stay availability or to schedule a tour, call (425) 673-2875 or go online at www.rosewoodcourte.com. Full residential accommodation options include both private suites and companion suites.
