It’s the economy

Our fiscal well-being soars or slumps with Boeing

Inmate back in court today Eugene Brian Garvie, a convicted sex offender, is accused of trying to coerce the boy he raped into recanting his accusations. By Scott North Herald Writer

VERETT — With its 100th birthday only seven months away, the Boeing Co. looks good for its age. It is coming off a big year in which it delivered more than 700 commercial airplanes from assembly production lines in Washington and South Carolina, conducted the first test flights of a new aerial refueling tanker for the military and continued erecting the massive building where the 777X’s composite material wings will be made. Boeing’s centennial year can be as successful as 2015 was if the aerospace giant can dodge labor strife during contract negotiations with its engineers union, continue cutting costs from 787 assembly, get the tanker through flight and system testing without any problems, smoothly increase its 737 production rate, and be ready to start assembling 777X jetliners in 2017.

EVERETT — Eugene Brian Garvie stood up in a Snohomish County courtroom in 2007 and pleaded guilty to the rape and sexual exploitation of a teenage boy he’d invited into his home. Then a referee in youth wrestling competitions, Garvie confessed to detectives that he’d groomed that teen and another boy for sex by supplying them with drugs and alcohol, court records show. Investigators recovered videos and photos documenting the sex acts. Despite the plea and other evidence memorializing the admissions, the then-convicted sex offender almost immediately began trying to avoid consequences. “Garvie does not acknowledge the extent of his behaviors or the damage he has done. He repeatedly blamed his victims for his actions,” a state corrections official wrote before the former Lake Stevens man was sentenced to a term of 13 years to life in prison. Now 49, Garvie has spent the years since pressing appeals. He’s insisted he was the victim of injustice involving detectives, the boys he abused, witnesses, the prosecutor, the judge and even his own defense attorney. The inmate was scheduled to be back in court Monday to answer new allegations. Prosecutors last month charged him with two counts of first-degree perjury, bribery and tampering with a witness, all felonies. The charges all stem from what prosecutors say is Garvie’s

Photos show lost ship in final resting place Associated Press JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Federal accident investigators are considering launching another search of the wreckage of a freighter that sank in October in an attempt to locate the ship’s “black box.” Tom Roth-Roffy, the lead investigator for National Transportation Safety Board, said a weeks-long search found one of the El Faro’s missing decks, but not the mast where the ship’s voyage data recorder was attached. The agency Sunday released the first images of the ship in its final resting place. “There were no human remains found whatsoever,

The Chicago-based company’s defense division is also trying to get the federal government to reconsider who will design and build the Air Force’s new longrange strike bomber. Northrop Grumman won the contract, worth up to $60 billion, in October. Boeing and its partner, Lockheed Martin, formally protested the decision the next month. That might seem like a daunting to-do list for most companies. But Boeing is not most companies. It has deep resources — talent, cash, political connections, to name a few — to throw

and no personal effects whatsoever,” Roth-Roffy said. “I think we found one boot.” The El Faro sank Oct. 1 after losing engine power and getting caught in a Category 4 hurricane while sailing from Jacksonville to San Juan, Puerto Rico. There were 33 mariners aboard and no survivors. Roth-Roffy said the NTSB would need to launch a second search of the wreckage 15,000 feet below the sea if it wants to find the data recorder, which would have recorded the captain’s final transmissions. They are still determining if and when such a search would occur. The images of the sunken

ship show a breach in the El Faro’s hull and its main navigation tower missing. Roth-Roffy says crews did locate one of the missing decks about a half-mile away from the main ship. Images show it resting on the seafloor, its windows broken out. The ship’s stern, or rear end, was buried more deeply than the bow, or front, Roth-Roffy said. Investigators are still piecing events of the sinking together, but at this point they’ve ruled out a major structure failure as a cause of the El Faro’s sinking, Roth-Roffy said. “The issue with the detachment of the upper

at challenges. Boeing’s fortunes can cast sunshine or shadows on Snohomish County’s economy. Civic and private sector leaders say they see sunny days ahead. The aerospace giant, which came to Everett in 1967, is the engine of a county economy that sustained one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state throughout 2015. But clouds linger. County unemployment, which dipped below 4 percent in the spring, hit 5 percent in November, according to state figures. Boeing has cut its statewide workforce by more than 3,000 since November 2013 when it received a tax break extension from the state as part of the deal that brought the 777X program to Everett. There are other challenges with planes, politicians and workers that could dampen investor spirits in the coming months. Issues with KC-46 refueling tankers need resolving if the company hopes to

assemble and deliver 18 of them to the U.S. Air Force by August 2017. Unsurprisingly, analysts are skeptical Boeing will meet its deadline. This is a critical year for the 777X program as it transitions from designing the new generation jetliner to establishing the assembly line in Everett for production to begin in 2017. Meanwhile, a restless labor force could be a source of headaches for corporate execs. The contract with aerospace engineers expires this year. Leaders of the state’s 20,000-strong Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace are bracing for difficult negotiations on a new deal. Management and workers have clashed in recent years at Boeing, which had a very fierce and public fight with Machinists over a contract extension in 2013. A labor dispute this year would be an unwanted distraction in what is supposed to be a gala year for Boeing. Avoiding one,

two decks, we’re looking at that carefully,” he said. Even without the data recorder, the images taken

though, could be difficult. Aerospace engineers are peeved. They’ve seen their numbers dwindle through layoffs, buyouts and transfers after Boeing secured a tax break extension that could save the company $8.7 billion through 2040. They will join with Machinists to press lawmakers in 2016 to scale back the lucrative tax break if Boeing continues moving jobs to other states. At the forefront will be Rep. June Robinson, D-Everett, who intends to resurrect her bill requiring Boeing to sustain a minimum number of jobs in Washington in order to receive the entire tax break. Boeing isn’t the only measuring stick for Snohomish County’s rebounding economy. Housing prices are higher in many parts of the county than a year ago. People are in a buying mood and the supply is tight which should keep sales prices high so long as the market doesn’t stagnate. Developers are looking for available land.

There are job openings in many sectors of public service. There’s a need for teachers, cops, state troopers, mental health workers and even assistant attorney generals. With Washington’s economy mostly clear of the Great Recession, its most powerful labor unions are ready to take the fight on wages and benefits statewide. They are giving up on state lawmakers and the governor to increase the state’s minimum wage and plan to ask voters to do it themselves with an initiative that could lead to a wage of at least $13 an hour. This same ballot measure also would require businesses to provide paid sick leave. The outcome could resonate through the aerospace industry in Snohomish County, where there are many employed by aerospace suppliers and support businesses who do not earn $13 an hour.

Charter commission set to begin work By Jerry Cornfield Herald Writer

EVERETT – Fifteen men and women will gather Wednesday to begin reviewing the Snohomish County Charter and decide if they want to make any changes in it.

This will be the first meeting of the county’s Charter Review Commission whose members were elected by voters in November. Each will be sworn in for an unpaid one-year term in which they will debate, propose and

try to pass amendments to the charter which functions like a constitution for governing the county. The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be in the County Council chambers on the eighth floor of the Administration Building in Everett. It is

open to the public. Reviewing the charter occurs once every 10 years. It is done by the commission, which is made up of three people from each of the five County Council districts. Commissioners have wide latitude to suggest changes to the

structure of county government laid out in 1979. That can include getting rid of certain elected offices or tinkering with department structures. This year commissioners are See CHARTER, Page A10



Head’s up on shoulder driving S IAN TERRY / THE HERALD

Spencer Sawdon will graduate from AIM High School in Snohomish this year and hopes to join the Marine Corps.

Following path to leadership By Amy Nile Herald Writer

SNOHOMISH — Spencer Sawdon is a senior at AIM High School in Snohomish. He had trouble staying focused on his courses at first but has changed that in hopes of joining the U.S. Marine Corps after graduation. Sawdon, 18, is now a leader at the alternative school, influencing other students to work hard to achieve their goals. He’s also in the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps at Snohomish High School. Question: How did you get involved in the JROTC program?

Answer: I was in it my freshman year. My dad brought it up and I decided to give it a try. I left after first semester because I didn’t think it was right for me. Last year, I decided to join again. The class teaches you a lot about leadership. I think it’ll help me with joining the Marine Corps. Q: What made you decide you want to join the military? A: My dad went to Snohomish High School and decided to join the Marine Corps. I want to follow in his footsteps. He told me it’s a good life experience and you get to travel. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Q: When will you enlist?

A: I have to close the gauges in my ears first because they’re are not allowed. I have to get surgery but I think it’ll be worth it. Q: I understand you’re also an artist? A: I like to draw just about anything, portraits, Japanese artwork, just art in general. I like sculpting, water colors, working with charcoal and glass art. Q: Tell me about your apprenticeship? A: I’ve been an apprentice at my dad’s tattoo shop. It’s a learning process everyday. I go to work as much as I can. My dad tells me what’s right, what’s

wrong and how I can improve each picture. It’s drawing 24/7. Practice, practice, practice. Q: Have you actually inked a person? A: I’m not ready for that yet. It’s kind of scary. We’re going to practice on a latex arm first. If it turns out, great. If not, it’s just a hobby of mine. Q: Is tattooing something you’d ever be interested in as a career? A: It’s something to fall back on when I get out of the Marine Corps. It’s good to have a backup plan. See SUPER, Page A4

$600K to fund projects at three national parks By Eric Stevick Herald Writer

front porch

DARRINGTON — Butterflies in the North Cascade Range are among the beneficiaries of more than $600,000 given to three national parks in Washington. Each year Washington’s National Park Fund collects donations to help with projects in the North Cascades, Mount Rainier and Olympic national parks. This year’s $602,000 contribution was a record.

The money is earmarked for more than 20 projects, including providing an education ranger at Mount Rainier National Park and replacing a nature trail bridge in the Olympic National Park. For the North Cascades, some of the money will go into a long-term monitoring project in which hikers and park enthusiasts volunteer to help track butterfly populations in alpine meadows. Monitoring also is done in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and other areas.

The information helps scientists because butterflies can be indicators of climate change, said Laurie Ward, executive director of Washington’s National Park Fund. Air temperature influences butterfly growth, geographic distribution and flowering patterns of their host plants, according to a description of the butterfly project.

Ward said the private money raised for parks each year focuses on advancing science and research, strengthening programs for youth and families, improving the experiences of visitors and expanding the base of volunteers.

houlder driving is coming to I-5 from Everett to Marysville to help ease the bumper-tobumper evening rush. A question from David Nelson of Marysville brought this news. Nelson was among many folks wondering what long-term plans may exist to extend an HOV lane or otherwise expand capacity on I-5 north. Street Smarts took the question to the Washington State Department of Transportation. Spokesman Tom Pearce responded: “There is no timeframe or funding for extending HOV lanes to Marysville or beyond. However, the Connecting Washington package includes funding for a project that would allow drivers to use the shoulder of northbound I-5 between Marine View Drive and Highway 528 in Marysville as an additional lane in times of heavy congestion.” Herald readers may recall this has long been on the wish-list for local leaders. A similar approach has been in place on U.S. 2, with the shoulder open on the eastbound trestle during peak afternoon commute hours since spring 2009. The I-5 shoulder project will take the concept to the next level, Pearce said. “One difference between the I-5 project and U.S. 2 is the hours of operation. On the eastbound U.S. 2 trestle shoulder driving is allowed only at specific times of day. The I-5 shoulder lane project will include an active signing system that would let drivers know when shoulder driving is allowed,” he said. The help is a few years off. Design is set to start in 2017, with construction expected in 2019 or 2020. The project will require restriping the existing lanes and rebuilding bridge barriers to provide a shoulder wide enough for driving.

Dec. 3, 1912 - Dec. 23, 2015 Luella McGrath passed away on December 23, 2015, 23 days before her 103rd birthday. Luella was the oldest child of Dovie Hensel McGrath and Henry McGrath. Luella was born just nor th of Water ville, Washington at her grandparent’s (George H e n s e l a n d B r i d g e t We i r Hensel) home. The old brick school house a block from Luella’s home closed the year she started s c h o o l , s o s h e a t te n d e d school in Waterville followed by her younger siblings George McGrath and Evelyne (McGrath) Madtson. Luella graduated from Water ville during the depression in 1931. By working for room and board, Luella was able to attend Central Washington University which was a Normal School. Miss McGrath had a passion for teaching. For two years, she obtained a position as a teacher at the Peoh Point School, just south of Cle Elum, Washington. Then she taught in Marysville, Washington for nine years. During this time, Luella attended summer courses to earn her teaching degree from C.W.U. Most of Luella’s teaching years were in Everett, Washington where she taught fourth grade in the newest demonstration school. She received many honors and awards for her teaching. She had numerous stories about her pupils that she loved to share. She still received Christmas cards from her students sharing their appreciation of her as a teacher. A teacher friend, Elsie Ta m m a n d L u e l l a l i v e d to g et h e r i n a h o u s e t h ey purchased soon after moving to Everett. The two loved to travel. They went to Europe several times, i n c l u d i n g o n e t r i p to t h e Communist countries of Eastern Europe. They also took trips to South America, and the South Pacific Islands. Their longest trip was a trip around the world which included the Orient, India, Egypt, and the Holy L a n d s .

The Washington State Transportation Improvement Board selected several projects submitted by the city of Arlington, including $2.3 million to build the new Arlington Valley Road. The road is currently being designed by ReidMiddleton. The road will have a southern connection at 67th Avenue and 192nd Street and a northern connection onto 74th Avenue. The two-lane road will include a 12-foot wide trail and rain garden drainage.

“The construction of turn lanes along Mukilteo Boulevard in this area,” he added, “would require widening of the road by more than 12 feet to maintain minimum lane widths for bicycle lanes and through travel lanes while adding a turn lane. Retaining walls would be required to support this

widened roadway crosssection. The cost of this type of roadway widening project can be significant, and the crash history along Mukilteo Boulevard near Forest Park does not justify the expense. Accordingly there are no current plans to construct turn lanes at these locations.”

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency said air pollution remains an issue in Pierce County. During a stage one burn ban, burning is allowed in pellet stoves and EPA certified wood stoves and inserts.

SEATTLE — The burn bans for Snohomish and King counties have been lifted. And the burn ban in parts of Pierce County has been lowered to a stage one burn ban.


that want to hear their grandchildren.

Steven Lay, of Everett, writes about close calls and fender-benders at one of the curvy and hilly entrances to Forest Park on East Mukilteo Boulevard at Federal Avenue. “If a driver is distracted for even a second they may find themselves slamming on their brakes to avoid a collision with a vehicle turning left at Federal or into the entrance of Forest Park. This has been on going for years and is avoidable. The city can one close down this entrance to Forest Park and utilize only the entrance further west. The city could also post ‘no left turn onto Federal’ when heading west up the hill on 41st.” Lay brought this issue up in 2012, as well, when the city was waiting on more accident data to see if follow-ups to improvements made in 2010 would be warranted. City traffic engineer Tim Miller looked at the five years of crash data. While crashes do occur, the rate is not excessive, he said.

Crunch time in Iowa “For Cruz, it’s about the complete consolidation of the evangelical wing,” GOP consultant says. Associated Press


Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee speaks in Urbandale, Iowa, on Sunday.


Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks in Knoxville, Iowa, on Thursday.


Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio speaks in Clinton, Iowa, on Tuesday.

days, 28 cities — covering the state’s most fertile ground for Republicans. Candidates often try to recruit a political leader to stand for them in each of Iowa’s 99 counties. Cruz also has sought a pastor in each to do the same, hoping to corner the market on the evangelical voters who make up a significant part of the GOP caucuses. “For Cruz, it’s about the complete consolidation of the evangelical wing to snuff the life from the others,” said Phil Musser, a Republican consultant who is not affiliated with a campaign. While Cruz has edged ahead in preference polls of Iowa voters in recent weeks, nationally, he still trails the unquestioned political star of 2015: Donald Trump. The billionaire real-estate mogul has so far forgone the grind-it-out approach in favor of free media exposure and a few rallies a week in front of largely adoring crowds. “He says what everybody’s thinking, and he’s not afraid to say it,” said Trump supporter Bill Kullander, of Des Moines. The unknown for Trump: Are Kullander and the thousands of others who pack the

bleachers at Trump’s rallies and tell pollsters he’s their top choice for the GOP nomination likely voters? Or are they merely fans entertained by his show? “If I do have a frustration, it’s that we’re being led by the nose, and the news media is led by the nose, to think that somehow Trump is going to win this because of these polls,” Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, whose numbers in preference polls hardly register by comparison, said Sunday. “The polls don’t, I believe, capture who’s going to actually vote.” Voters are not likely to find Trump dropping in at one of Iowa’s many Pizza Ranch restaurants to ask for their support, as Cruz will do on his bus tour. But Trump’s top adviser in Iowa is a veteran organizer who ran former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s winning 2012 caucus campaign. Also, it’s notable that after almost no paid advertising in 2015, Trump said last week he plans to start spending at least $2 million a week on TV ads in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, which holds the South’s first primary on Feb. 20.

“Honestly, I don’t want to take any chances,” Trump said last week. Neither Cruz nor Trump will win the nomination with a victory in Iowa, but caucus-goers probably will deliver a verdict on whether several GOP candidates continue on to New Hampshire. Count Santorum and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the caucuses in 2008, in that group, and maybe retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, too. Carson was an early favorite in Iowa among evangelical and tea party conservatives, but he enters January without several members of his senior staff. They quit last week and questioned his readiness for the White House on their way out. Candidates with more traditional political experience will spend the month trying to bridge the gap between the anger and frustration that’s powered Trump’s rise and the Republican establishment, which desperately wants to win after eight years out of the White House. For Rubio and Bush, as well as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, that likely means lighting the match with a strong finish in Iowa, then igniting their bid with a win in New Hampshire. “The most important thing to watch is what happens in New Hampshire,” said GOP presidential adviser Charlie Black. “That’s going to set the field in terms of a mainstream candidate.” Rubio, criticized for not spending enough time in the early voting states, has started to campaign more aggressively in New Hampshire, including three town halls and a football-watching party with voters Sunday. “This is the first primary in the country, in many ways the first step toward a new America,” Rubio said in Milford. After falling far enough late in 2015 to get relegated to an “undercard” debate, Christie has rebounded and is getting a second look in New Hampshire, where he has spent more time than any candidate. Bush, too, has reshuffled his so-far lackluster bid and focused since November on New Hampshire. His closing message, having tried several since entering the race in June as the early frontrunner, is a direct challenge to Trump. “He’ll do damage to the conservative cause and we’ve got to take a stand,” Bush said. “And for some odd reason I’m the only guy willing to do it.”

Saudis cut ties with Iran after execution Associated Press TEHRAN, Iran — Saudi Arabia announced Sunday it was severing diplomatic relations with Shiite powerhouse Iran amid escalating tensions over the Sunni kingdom’s execution of a prominent Shiite cleric. The move came hours after protesters stormed and set fire to the Saudi Embassy in Tehran and followed harsh criticism

Jewish extremists are charged in arson JERUSALEM— Israel on Sunday charged two Jewish extremists in an arson attack that killed a Palestinian toddler and his parents last July— culminating a drawn-out investigation into a case that has helped fuel months of Israeli-Palestinian violence. The indictments came as Israel said it had broken up a ring of Jewish extremists wanted in a series of attacks on Palestinian and Christian targets. While Israel’s prime minister trumpeted the arrests as a victory for law and order, the charges drew criticism from Palestinians, who said they were too little and too late, and from the suspects’ relatives, who claimed their loved ones had been tortured by Israeli interrogators.

By Thomas Beaumont DES MOINES, Iowa — It’s been a year of town halls and weekend forums and lunchtime meet-and-greets for those who would be president, with nights spent sparring in televised debates and endless days fundraising to pay for TV ads, direct-mail fliers and organizers to get out the vote. All of it is aimed at people like Jocelyn Beyer, a Republican from the small town of Sully in rural central Iowa, who says despite the many months of political clamor, she’s only just now starting to think about her vote for the White House. “I can’t say I’ve paid much attention,” Beyer said. “The moral issues are what I focus on. If I had to vote today, I’d vote for Ted Cruz.” While that’s not a solid “yes” for the Texas senator, at least he’s doing better with Beyer than he is with Brian Metcalf, a Republican from nearby Pella. Metcalf is thinking about Cruz, but also former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. That is, when he’s spending any time thinking about the race. “Until now, it’s just been noise,” he said. “But I’d like to see someone with a Reaganesque approach.” For all the attention showered on early state voters in the past year by candidates, their unpaid volunteers and highdollar admakers — and, yes, journalists, too — the truth is that what happened in 2015 was only the pregame show. The race for the White House starts in earnest this week as voters such as Beyer and Metcalf begin to tune in and the candidates try to win them over during a four-week sprint to the leadoff Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1. It’s then that voters have their first say and push pundits, predictions and polls aside. “The race is still fluid,” said Beth Myers, who managed 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign and supports Bush in 2016. “There’s still a twist or two in this primary story that we don’t know yet.” Where to begin? It’s easier to start with the Democrats. Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont hopes an upset in Iowa and a victory in the New Hampshire primary a week later will dent the apparent inevitability of front-runner Hillary Clinton. Wins in the first two states for the former first lady, New York senator and secretary of state would all but cement her place atop her party’s ticket. There is no such clarity in the Republican race. Despite shedding five candidates before New Year’s Day, the GOP contest is an unpredictable mix of a dozen hopefuls with vastly different visions for the party and the country. Ahead now in Iowa is Cruz, who spent 2015 quietly building a traditional campaign organization and will kick off his month with a bus tour — six


by Iran’s top leader of the Saudis’ execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Iranian diplomatic personnel had 48 hours to leave his country and all Saudi diplomatic personnel in Iran had been called home. The mass execution of alNimr and 46 others — the largest carried out by Saudi Arabia in three and a half

decades — laid bare the sectarian divisions gripping the region as demonstrators took to the streets from Bahrain to Pakistan in protest. It also illustrated the kingdom’s new aggressiveness under King Salman. During his reign, Saudi Arabia has led a coalition fighting Shiite rebels in Yemen and staunchly opposed regional Shiite power Iran, even as Tehran struck

a nuclear deal with world powers. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned Saudi Arabia on Sunday of “divine revenge” over al-Nimr’s death, while Riyadh accused Tehran of supporting “terrorism” in a war of words that threatened to escalate even as the U.S. and the European Union sought to calm the region.

Troops were still battling at least two gunmen Sunday night at an air force base near the border with Pakistan, more than a day and a half after the compound came under attack, a top government official said. At least seven troops and four gunmen have been killed in the fighting so far. The two suspected militants were found shortly after noon Sunday and hours later appeared to have been cornered, the home secretary said, adding that he expected the gunmen to be “neutralized” soon. The attack on the Pathankot air force base started before dawn Saturday.

Quake rocks the northeast A 6.7 magnitude earthquake hit India’s remote northeast region before dawn Monday, killing at least four people, injuring 100 others and causing damage to several buildings. The death and injuries were caused by falling debris in and around Imphal, the capital of Manipur state, police said. The powerful tremor left large cracks in walls and a portion of a popular market building collapsed in the state capital. A newly built six-story building also collapsed in Imphal, police said.

Mexico: Mayor assassinated Three people, including a minor, were being held Sunday in the slaying of a newly inaugurated mayor in a gang-troubled central Mexican city. Morelos Gov. Graco Ramirez blamed organized crime for killing Temixco Mayor Gisela Mota, 33, a former federal congresswoman who had been sworn in as mayor less than a day before she was gunned down in her home Saturday morning. Ramirez ordered security measures for all of the state’s mayors.

Ethiopia: Drone base shut The U.S. government has shut down its drone operation base in the south, an embassy official said. A decision has been reached that the base in Arba Minch, 280 miles south of Addis Ababa, is no longer necessary, the spokesman said. A security expert in Addis Ababa, who insisted on anonymity for fear of Ethiopian government reprisal, said the base was used to attack Islamic extremists in Somalia.

ACROSS THE U.S. D.C.: Town hall on guns President Barack Obama will participate in a live town hall on CNN Thursday, White House officials said, part of his renewed push for additional gun restrictions in the U.S. The event with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, which an official described as a discussion “on reducing gun violence in America” will take place from 5 to 6 p.m. PT. “Cooper will moderate the discussion, and the president will take questions from the audience,” the White House said. The televised session will take place in the same week that Obama will announce a set of new executive actions aimed at reducing gun crimes, including one requiring occasional gun sellers to run background checks on potential buyers.

California: Tesla output Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors Inc. hit the low end of its latest target to deliver at least 50,000 vehicles for the year, shipping 17,400 vehicles in the fourth quarter. The maker of electric cars and energy storage devices delivered 50,580 Model S sedans and Model X sport utility vehicles in 2015, Tesla said Sunday. While that’s less than the 55,000 Tesla had projected in a February letter to shareholders, it was in line with its revised estimate of 50,000 to 52,000 from November. Tesla is producing the vehicles in Fremont. From Herald news services

An Edmonds T-shirt empire South By Sea has nearly 50 full-time employees — about 30 in Nashville and 20 in Edmonds. By Melissa Crowe Herald Business Journal

EDMONDS — Eric Carr is a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy. In fact, so is most staff at South By Sea, the custom collegiate apparel company he and his friend, Brandon Metcalf, founded in 2011. Despite the laid-back dress code, it’s all business at their small second-story office in an old building on Dayton Street in downtown Edmonds. Atop the front desk, an inbox overflows with orders and requests, and past the dimly lit foyer, a team of designers hand-sketch and revise dozens of new illustrations a day while sales representatives take orders from universities in Florida, Georgia, Texas and more.

‘A leap of faith’ “We just ended up taking a leap of faith,” Carr, 31, said. Their leap of faith is paying off. The company has nearly 50 fulltime employees — about 30 in Nashville and 20 in Edmonds — a sales team that is set to break the $7 million mark this year, and a plan to continue growing. The company offers custom apparel, hats, tumblers, koozies, water bottles, sunglasses, totes, socks and more, with free artwork and revisions. In the past four years, they’ve sold more than 1 million products for bid days, semi-formals, homecomings and other Greek life events. “We try a lot of different things,” Carr said. “What works, we’ll keep. What doesn’t, we scrap.” It’s not just about custom gear. Along with South By Sea’s design office in Edmonds and print shop in Nashville, the company has an unexpected division — music. Since the start, Metcalf, 29, dreamed of combining the apparel business with his passion for music. In 2012, after South By Sea saw 300 percent growth, he

left the Pacific Northwest to take the business in a new direction. With four employees and a recording studio in Nashville, the heartland of American music, Metcalf is already seeing success with artists like Frankie, who made Taylor Swift’s list of favorite new songs in October. Compared to the apparel side, recording and developing artists is a small portion of South By Sea’s business. In between music projects, Metcalf oversees the print shop.

Focused on the college market Ninety-five percent of the company is focused on the college market, but by the end of the year, South By Sea is launching a new corporate division aimed at gearing up local business owners, nonprofits and events. “We’re not necessarily after

water bottles for Microsoft,” Carr joked. Carr and Metcalf have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. In high school, Carr, who grew up in Ferndale, opened a business setting up Christmas light displays. By his sophomore year at Washington State University, he was president of his fraternity, Beta Theta Pi. Metcalf spent his summers helping his father lay flooring in the Everett area. As a teenager, he took that work ethic, which he said is “in his blood,” and started his first T-shirt business designing and selling musician merchandise. “I don’t have a lot of formal education or training other than jumping in and figuring things out along the way,” Metcalf said. When the two met and started talking business, they realized with each other’s help they could make something successful.

Building a successful business wasn’t easy, but with the help of their dedicated team, the two pushed through it. “We’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs,” Carr said. Every dime the company made was reinvested. They worked around the clock, putting in 100hour workweeks.

Always have fun Even still, they made sure to always have fun. “Some of our most enjoyable times at the company were at the beginning when we had nothing,” Carr said. Back then, Groupons for Burger Madness, a local burger chain, were incentive enough. Anne Hornung, the company’s creative director, turned the company into a trio. After two years running the business out of an apartment in Northgate with Carr living

upstairs, they moved South By Sea to Edmonds, to its first bona fide office space. “We just really liked the area,” Carr said. “This place popped up and it was a great deal, we have a cool view of the water and a safe environment.” The bottom line is they stay focused on the future and excited about their growth. Carr is planning how to double their collegiate sales and build up the new corporate division. His goal is to break $25 million. Metcalf wants to add more capacity to the Nashville print shop and expand into the West Coast. “Overall, I feel very fortunate to be involved and get to be exploring my passion,” he said. The credit goes to the team for building the company into what it is today, he said. “It was all part of the dream, but being here and living it is pretty awesome,” he said.


Taxes begin to catch up with the sharing economy T

biz bits

he sharing economy continues to disrupt traditional industries. Lyft competes with taxis; Airbnb with the hotel industry. However, in the past year criticisms of the trend have emerged as the industries have grown. More than one million people across the globe will ring in the New Year while staying in an Airbnb property. For those not familiar, Airbnb provides an online platform linking travelers looking for accommodations to individuals with a spare room or empty apartment for rent on a nightly basis. According to its founders, the site has turned many dust gathering guest bedrooms into a new source of revenue. Airbnb is a prime example of the sharing economy which creates value by allowing individuals to utilize high-value assets that are underutilized

often through an online platform. Other examples include ride sharing services like Lyft and Uber, car sharing platforms, coworking or shared office spaces and freelance sites where people can pick up short term gigs like Taskrabbit. Some of the criticism of this new business model that have arisen include: The Independent Contract Model: People providing labor for shared economy jobs are in almost all cases treated as independent contractors. This designation means that individuals are responsible for their own Social Security taxes, do not get access to healthcare or retirement benefits and must cover their own expenses for providing the service. Some workers enticed by the allure of a flexible and entrepreneurial work option, have become disillusioned after

People Marysville Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility managed by Life Care Centers of America, has welcomed a new executive director, Brandon Dravis. Originally from Port Orchard, he recently completed Life Care’s administrator-in-training

realizing the total costs of independent contracting. In response to driver complaints the Seattle City Council approved an ordinance allowing for drivers for Uber and other ride sharing services the right to organize and collectively bargain for higher wages and better working conditions. Turning Houses to Hotels: Airbnb has come under fire in high-rent cities like New York, San Francisco and even Seattle for contributing to rising rental housing costs. Rather than the original intent of making use of an extra room in a permanent residence, some property owners and management firms have converted units into full time Airbnb listings. Nightly or weekly rentals can bring in substantially higher profits than annual leases. Critics have argued that this leads to rising rents as there are fewer units available for people

Good deeds

The Sixth Annual Battle of the Banks in Snohomish has ended its competition to collect food and financial donations for the

seeking permanent but affordable residences. Furthermore, property owners do not have to comply with tenant rights regulations or fair housing issues for short-term rentals. San Francisco residents recently voted down Proposition F that would place severe restrictions on Airbnb and other providers. However, future efforts are almost guaranteed to continue as housing prices continue to rise. Lost Tax Revenues: Local governments derive substantial revenue from hotel taxes, licensing fees, sales taxes and other fees paid by traditional businesses. When sharing economy platforms emerged, the regulatory structures made it difficult or impossible to levy taxes. Traditional business in competition with sharing sites have revolted, arguing that by following the regulations, they are at a competitive disadvantage in the marketplace.

Snohomish Community Food Bank. In the top spot, with a Golden Glove Award, is Coastal Community Bank. Opus Bank of Snohomish took second place, followed by Peoples Bank in third. Together, six banks in Snohomish collected 1,690 pounds of food and $818 in monetary donations during December.

In response, many municipalities have begun to adopt tax regimes for sharing economy platforms. Airbnb recently agreed to remit hotel taxes to the city, and Las Vegas negotiated a 3 percent excise tax from ride hailing companies. The future likely holds more regulation and taxation for sharing based businesses. The sharing economy certainly continues to disrupt traditional industries leveraging the power of mobile technology to create new opportunities to earn income. The size and scope of these billion dollar enterprises means they will not easily go away. However, as regulatory regimes catch up with the times, it will be interesting to see how these networks will continue to evolve.

IN OUR VIEW | AMA proposal

Ban drug ads from TV again In a move that received little news coverage, and consequently was mostly ignored except in business circles, the American Medical Association in November approved a resolution that seeks a ban on direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs and medical devices in the United States — in other words, getting rid of all those prescription drug ads on TV, magazines and radio. New Zealand is the only other country that allows such ads. Congress, which years ago gave the OK for such ads, is the body that can ban them. That being the case, the little plea from the small doctors’ lobbyist group, will never be heard over the lobbying roar of the pharmaceutical companies, which, for example, spent more than $3.2 billion on lobbying activities from 1998 through 2015, reports. And that’s just the lobbying. U.S. drug companies spend $4.5 billion a year selling their products, according to marketing research, and that figure has increased in the past couple years. At the same time, the Washington Post reports, prescription drug prices rose nearly 5 percent in 2015. The AMA argues that such ads drive a demand for

expensive pills and medicines when less costly generic drugs are just as effective, and also create a demand for new and more expensive drugs, even when these drugs may not be appropriate, such as the patient’s need or a medication’s efficacy for the condition. Denise Kinney, of Gig Harbor, has started a petition on urging Congress to follow the AMA’s request. Kinney cites a recent poll by the Kaiser Family Health Foundation that found that 89 percent of respondents want the FDA to review prescription ads before they run, which by federal law the FDA cannot do; it must rely solely on consumer complaints after the fact. (Almost as ubiquitous as the drug ads are the ads from lawyers who want to help you sue, or your family sue, if you have died, over prescribed “bad drugs” or medical devices that have been pulled from use, or are still in use.) Advertising groups and drug companies don’t believe that the ads cause the problems that the AMA and others say they do, including higher prices, although such increases have been documented, whether directly or indirectly related to the ads. Advertisers and drug

companies invoke the First Amendment for their right to advertise, and like to say that the drug commercials are a font of medical information about new treatments for various potentially serious or life-threatening diseases, which people can then “talk to their doctors about.” But these are ads, remember. The medical information provided is not vetted, or straightforward. Seth D. Ginsberg, writing in U.S. News and Consumer Reports, suggests that rather than eliminating the ads, the format should be changed to make them as educational as the drug makers say they are. For example, “shouldn’t we have side-effect information that tells us not that we could die, but what the chances of death are?” Ginsberg asks. “... Patients deserve to have quantitative information about the expected risks and benefits of their treatments, ideally based on evidence derived from the experience of people like them. Drug ads don’t tell them this.” The problem with reworking the format to foster better communication is that the drug ads will always be ads. People will always be thought of as “consumers,” not people or patients. And “consumers,”

by definition, need to be sold something. Prescription drugs, all of which have potentially dangerous side effects, aren’t meant to be advertised and sold like other consumer goods. You’ll never see an ad urging you to get a polio vaccine because no one makes money from it. Meanwhile, health officials are concerned that the rates for girls and boys getting the HPV vaccine remain low. Many reasons factor into the low rate, and perhaps one is that two competing vaccines are marketed with brands names and advertised on TV and other platforms, by two of the biggest drug companies, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline. A marketing campaign, rather than a neutral, educational one, might make some people wonder if the drug companies have their children’s best interest at heart. People who want and need real medical information, and unbiased information about medicines, don’t get them from prescription drug ads. The information is biased by definition. Sign the petition, or contact your representatives in Congress. It’s time to eradicate the drug ads, which are symptom of our Monied Interests disease.


Help for youth to resist terrorism The Dec. 16 news article, “60 charged in terrorism crimes” reports that 55 percent of those charged are under 25 years old, and one-third are under 21. This and many other stories in 2015 reveal the urgent need to focus on how youth become radicalized and what to do about it. It’s good news, indeed, that just three days before that story appeared, the UN Security Council, chaired this month by Secretary of State John Kerry, unanimously adopted a resolution (2250) outlining measures to protect youth during conflicts, empower them to resist radicalization and to play active roles as peace builders. We’re used to saying that “youth are the future.” This UNSC resolution calls on governments and civil society organizations to engage with youth now as positive partners against terrorism.

Obama is not, in fact, to blame Our forum would certainly be monotonous if we all shared the same political

views. Granted, it’s always more pleasant to read letters which reinforce our own thinking, but it could be reasonably suggested that we benefit far more from well presented perspectives which encourage us to examine or re-evaluate our positions. Unfortunately, such letters are infrequent and facts, because they can seriously undermine the credibility of one’s presentation, often become irrelevant. Thus, I respectfully propose that the Herald seek a part-time fifthgrade volunteer to fact-check our letters before they are cleared to print. In his Dec. 29 letter, a gentleman referring to the San Bernardino terrorists,

Have your say Include your name, address and daytime phone number. E-mail: Mail: Letters section The Herald P.O. Box 930 Everett, WA 98206 stated the following: “Barack Hussein Obama and his penchant for allowing dangerous foreigners into the country is once again culpable for this tragedy.” Since our hypothetical fifth-grader is blessed with a higher level of awareness

than a turnip, he or she would know, or quickly learn, that one of the shooters was a Chicago born citizen and that the other entered the country legally through a visa program established in 1970. In short, their presence was unrelated to any Obama policy and he is, in fact, not “culpable.” In this instance, once the giggling was under control, the letter would be returned with the request that any future blends of ignorance and hate be reality based. This system would significantly reduce the amount of nonsense to which readers are being subjected. Dan Postema Everett

OTHER VOICES | Gun safety campaign

NBA, players speak out on gun violence By The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Editorial Board


merica’s pro sports leagues are generally risk-averse. With millions of dollars in profits at stake, there’s little upside to offending customers by taking positions on social issues. That’s why it’s extraordinary — and laudable — that the National Basketball Association teamed up with Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety organization for a series of public messages

about gun violence. On Christmas, the advocacy group began running public service announcements on TV with Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and Carmello Anthony of the New York Knicks speaking in personal terms about gun violence. The NBA stars are joined by victims of gun violence and relatives of those killed by guns. Because NBA viewership during the holiday season is high, Everytown for Gun Safety scheduled the commercials for maximum

exposure. Though heartfelt, the 30-second PSAs steer clear of policy proposals that could alienate viewers who feel their Second Amendment rights might be jeopardized by gunsafety legislation. This reflects a newer, smarter strategy by the group launched by the former New York City mayor. There is nothing controversial about calling for an end to gun violence, particularly given the toll from mass killings in 2015. Even so, it could not have been easy for the NBA to put

its prestige on the line by aligning with a group that ultimately wants to limit access to guns. Its willingness to buck the tradition of neutrality on big issues reflects a growing awareness by players that no one is immune to gun violence. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait years before the National Football League, National Hockey League and Major League Baseball are confident enough to add their voices. The above editorial appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Monday.

Merkel offers example to U.S. on migrants


ime magazine made a solid news judgment in naming German Chancellor Angela Merkel its 2015 “Person of the Year.” The flood of refugees and immigrants from the Middle East and Africa into Europe, the greatest wave of migrants since World War II, is the worldchanging event of the decade, and Merkel is DEBRA J. SAUNDERS the individual most responsible for rolling out Germany’s welcome mat to more than a million asylum seekers. “It was an audacious act that, in a single motion, threatened both to redeem Europe and endanger it,” Time wrote. It was an audacious act — and no one knows better than Merkel how unmanageable it is. In July, the chancellor endured a painful televised confrontation with a Palestinian teen, who, in fluent German, told Merkel that the threat of deportation kept her from enjoying the life she sees others living. “As long as I don’t know that I can stay here, I don’t know what my future will be,” the girl said. Visibly upset, Merkel told the 14-year-old that Germany “just can’t manage” to help every refugee and asylum seeker. In September, Merkel threw caution to the wind and dispensed with standard European Union asylum procedures. The gesture was seen as a green light not only by desperate Syrians fleeing violence but also by economic refugees from Africa and Afghanistan who saw the moment as perhaps a final opportunity to squeeze into Europe before the door slams shut. A disapproving Hungarian official told The Wall Street Journal, “The Germans think they’re the Americans of Europe.” Here’s another parallel between Germany and the United States: The day comes when governments have to enforce immigration laws, even if they don’t want to. In the coming weeks, The Washington Post reported, the Obama administration is expected to deport Central Americans who surged across the border in 2014 but did not qualify for asylum. In December, Germany stepped up deportations of refugees not qualified for asylum status. At a news conference, Merkel made clear that many Afghans seeking asylum will be sent home. “Germany is saying, ‘We’re going to deport everyone (who doesn’t qualify),’” observed Jessica Vaughan of the proenforcement Center for Immigration Studies. “They’re actually starting to remove people, and it’s going relatively smoothly. That should be a lesson to the U.S.” Germany’s articulation should be a lesson to Washington. German Parliament member Mark Hauptmann gave two reasons Afghans are unlikely to qualify for asylum. First, he told NPR, “if we look at the people who are leaving the country, they are the young ones, the better-educated ones, and those ones are needed to build up Afghanistan.” Also: “We send our troops; we send our citizens there to protect Afghans and to basically create safe environments in Afghanistan. And then people from Afghanistan are coming as so-called war refugees here to Europe.” Vaughan told me that she admires Merkel for wanting to help Syrian refugees, but unfortunately, the chancellor’s rhetoric “came across as an open invitation to anyone who can get there.” To set things right, Merkel had to set clear boundaries and enforce the rules. “I think the big difference is that Merkel seems to mean what she says,” Vaughan added, unlike the Obama administration, which enforces immigration law spottily, and then reluctantly. Now Merkel finds herself back where she was in July. She knows that there are good people who want nothing more than to be good Germans — but she also knows that Germany cannot be the country that it is if it accommodates everyone who wants in. With too much traffic, any welcome mat wears thin. Thus, Merkel must “manage” who gets to stay in Germany — if she wants to maintain the support of voters who, with reason, fear that their safety net cannot handle the strain of a million-plus refugees. Credit Merkel with articulating a policy and refining it when she had to confront its unintended consequences. She knew the political cost and is likely to pay it someday. For his part, President Obama throws out bromides — for example, “That’s not who we are.” Everyone can agree with that statement because no one is sure exactly what it means. Meanwhile, the administration signs executive orders rewarding undocumented immigrants for flouting the law and then, the next day, threatens to actually enforce the law. And always about politics.

likely to discuss increasing the number of County Council members from five to seven, making the council seats and executive’s job non partisan, and establishing guidelines for the ombudsman office in the charter as is done in King County. Over a series of meetings and public hearings, commissioners will settle on proposed amendments to put on the ballot this November for voters to approve or reject. John Koster, a former councilman and ombudsman for the county, will guide Wednesday’s meeting because he received the most votes of any commission candidate in the election. He said he’s crafted an agenda that includes selecting a chairman and vice-chairman, setting meeting dates and discussing the $95,000 budget for the commission. There will not be a lot of time to do this work. Proposed amendments are due to the Auditor’s Office by Aug. 2 in order to get on the ballot. “We don’t have long,” Koster said. Jerry Cornfield: 360-3528623; jcornfield@heraldnet. com.

Who made it The commission is comprised of three people from each County Council district. Here are the members: District 1: John Koster, Raymond Miller, Jim Donner District 2: Dan Matthews, Jennifer Gregerson, Shawn O’Donnell District 3: Natalia Fior, Carin Chase, Marko Liias District 4: Ed Barton, Cheryl Stanford, Bob Terwilliger District 5: Kristin Kelly, Doug Roulstone, Wendy Valentine

BURNS, Ore. — The remote high desert of eastern Oregon became the latest flashpoint for anti-government sentiment as armed protesters occupied a national wildlife refuge to object to a prison sentence for local ranchers for burning federal land. Ammon Bundy — the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a 2014 standoff with the government over grazing rights — is among the people at the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. It was unclear exactly how many people were taking part in the protests. Ammon Bundy posted a video on his Facebook page asking for militia members to come help him. He said “this is not a time to stand down. It’s a time to stand up and come to Harney County,” where Burns is located. Bundy and other militia members came to Burns last month,

long campaign to regain his freedom by coercing the boy he once admitted raping into recanting the accusations, and shifting blame to another of Garvie’s victims. The scheme allegedly involved payments for a false statement. The defendant’s father, Ralph Daniel Garvie, 71, of Lake Stevens, is accused of playing an active role. He’s charged, too, with three felony counts alleging perjury, bribery and witness tampering. The case was built in part because the state Department of Corrections monitors JPay, the email system inmates can use to communicate with people outside prison, deputy prosecutor Halley Hupp said in an affidavit filed along with the Snohomish County Superior Court charges.

a small town about 280 miles southeast of Portland, Oregon. They were upset over the looming prison sentences for local ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond. They went to the wildlife refuge Saturday evening following a peaceful rally in Burns to support the ranchers. Dwight Hammond, 73, and Steven Hammond, 46, said they lit the fires on federal land in 2001 and 2006 to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. The two were convicted of the arsons three years ago and served time — the father three months, the son one year. But a federal judge ruled in October that their terms were too short under U.S. minimum sentencing law and ordered them back to prison for about four years each. The decision generated controversy and is part of a decades-long dispute between some Westerners and the federal government over the use of

public lands. The issue traces back to the 1970s and the “Sagebrush Rebellion,” a move by Western states like Nevada to increase local control over federal land. Critics of the push for more local control have said the federal government should administer the public lands for the widest possible uses, including environmental and recreation. In an interview with reporters late Saturday night posted on Facebook, Bundy said he and others are occupying a building at the refuge because “the people have been abused long enough.” “I feel we are in a situation where if we do not do something, if we do not take a hard stand, we’ll be in a position where we’ll be no longer able to do so,” he said. Bundy said the group planned to stay at the refuge indefinitely. On Sunday, supplies were seen being delivered to the refuge area, which is remote even by rural Oregon standards. Dwight Hammond has said

he and his son plan to peacefully report to prison Monday as ordered by the judge. Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward said the group of armed protesters came to town under false pretenses. “These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when in reality these men had alternative motives to attempt to over throw the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States,” Ward said in a statement on Sunday afternoon. The sheriff says he is working with local and federal authorities to keep the citizens in his county safe and to resolve the situation as quickly and peacefully as possible. He is asking people to stay away from the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for their own safety. He said he does not think any other parts of the county are in immediate danger.

The young man Garvie earlier admitted raping, now 24, has struggled with addiction. He’s served time in Washington prisons for auto theft, burglary and weapons offenses. He’s locked up again, facing new charges of stealing a car and crashing it under a semi truck, records show. Prison officials in 2012 noticed the young man communicating with Ralph Garvie using JPay and letters. It appeared he also was having indirect contact with Ralph Garvie’s convicted sex offender son, who has been serving his time in a prison on Washington’s coast. “The Department of Corrections became concerned about the content of the JPay emails, and referred those materials to the prosecutor’s office,” Hupp wrote. The emails, sent in 2012 and 2013, reportedly discuss the young man agreeing to prepare a statement recanting his earlier claims. They also document his demands for payment, Hupp wrote.

Ralph Garvie sent money to the young man’s prison accounts, according to court papers. He also allegedly set up a post office box in Snohomish and forwarded letters, so his son and the younger man could correspond. Two of Ralph Garvie’s former employees, including a secretary, allegedly have told a sheriff’s detective about assisting in getting payments and gifts to the younger Garvie’s victim while he was behind bars. “This included a TV, books and Christmas care packages,” Hupp wrote. “In her opinion this was all done to keep (the victim) cooperative and to convince him to complete the statement” needed for the appeal. Detectives interviewed the young man. He reportedly said he received a letter from his former abuser, offering friendship and financial support. Money was put on his prison accounts and there were later payments in face-to-face meetings with Ralph Garvie, Hupp said.

The man “told police he had a narcotics addiction. He said he was accepting money from the defendants to support his addiction,” the prosecutor wrote. “He said he had no intention of going to court to support their claims that (the younger Garvie) was innocent, and in fact (he) confirmed the sexual assault.” The man did sign the statement changing his story, as he had allegedly promised the Garvies. That document was filed as an exhibit when the younger Garvie in November 2014 launched his latest legal challenge to his conviction. It provides the basis for the perjury charges. Police confronted the rapist in prison before charges were filed. “They sat down with him and told him about this investigation,” Hupp wrote. The defendant reportedly became upset and began yelling about how he’d “once thought about contacting the victim and telling him what to say,” but didn’t follow through.

Lowell Elementary School third-grader Lily Brebner, pictured with firefighter Randy Seiber, won first place in an Everett Fire Department fire safety poster contest and was awarded a fire helmet.

Students share fire safety skills Firefighters from the Everett Fire Department in November visited Lowell Elementary School for Fire Safety Day. Students learned about smoke detectors, fire escape plans and getting out of their homes safely in emergencies. Students went outside to the “smoke trailer” where firefighters showed them how to stay low in smoke to escape safely from a burning building. Students then created posters to teach others what they learned about fire safety. The top three posters are now being displayed in the community. Firefighters judged the posters for content and creativity. Third-grader Lily Brebner won first place, and fourth-graders Anisah Barrientes and Tom Hong were runners-up. Classes that saw all students bring back completed evacuation plans from home were treated to ice cream by the Everett Firefighters Association.

Grandparents as adoptive parents should only play role of parent


Question: Our daughter died last year — long, sad story — leaving behind a 2-year-old boy. The father — not named on the birth certificate — is not and never has been a factor in the child’s life and gave us permission to adopt without any conditions. He simply has zero interest. We did not anticipate becoming parents again, but “grandparents have got to do what grandparents have got to do.” Our new son, whom we love dearly, is about to turn three. Do you have any advice for how to properly parent a grandchild? Answer: First, I am truly sorry to hear about your daughter’s passing. I’m sure I speak for many in saying that I cannot imagine anything more devastating than a child’s death, no matter how problematic said child may have been. More specifically, my professional experience had led me to the general observation that the more difficult the child, the more guilt the parents find themselves having to deal with at the child’s passing. I say that because if you are dealing with a good amount of self-blame for your daughter’s problems, you are very likely to overcompensate with your

JOHN ROSEMOND LIVING WITH CHILDREN son in those parenting areas. For example, if you feel that you were too strict with your daughter, you are in danger of becoming too lax this time around. If you feel you were too lax, you’re likely to be too strict, and so on. The fact is that parenting is an influence; it is not the be-all-endall determining factor in how a child “turns out.” Consider that children raised very well by solidly moral people sometimes turn out badly; and children raised very badly by unquestionably bad people sometimes turn out quite well. In the final analysis, a child’s free will trumps any other influence. With that in mind, the first bit of advice I have for you is to embark upon this adventure as if it were exactly that — an adventure — rather than a chance for you to

make up for past mistakes. Parent in the present, not in the past. Second, understand that you cannot successfully be both parent and grandparent. While it may be tempting to exercise the prerogatives appertaining to the latter role, all three of you need for mom and dad to be the operative, day-to-day condition. Third, the fundamental understandings and principles are the same regardless of the actual biological relationship between parents and child. Parenting does not take on a new meaning when the parents are a child’s biological grandparents. To wit, your marriage trumps your relationship with him and you are the center of attention, not him; he obeys the rules and does what he is told or there are consequences; the answer to “why?” is “because we say so,” and so on. Keep it simple, always. To sum it up, lead as well and as much as you love. Therefore, you are going to have to focus purposefully on the former, because grandparents always want to emphasize the latter. which is why God made grandparents. Tribune Content Agency, LLC

Husband’s help to ex-lover suspicious Dear Abby: My husband went to Florida three months ago to care for an ailing former lover. He told me she will be leaving him a sizable inheritance and he needs to protect her from “vultures.” I admit I am suspicious of his motives. I think there may be more going on than what he’s telling me, but he has been painting a pretty picture of how rosy our future will be with her gift. He has now suggested that we get a temporary divorce so he can marry her in order to get her entire estate! He claims it will be nothing more than a business arrangement. His suggestion left me flabbergasted. Even though our marriage has been rocky at times, I have never seen this side of him. I don’t know whether to believe him and be simply disappointed at his callous behavior, or not believe him and conclude that he really wants a divorce so he can marry her. Any thoughts? — Heartsick In South Carolina Dear Heartsick: Your husband appears to still be carrying a torch for his old flame. Are you sure she is really sick? If it’s the truth, then the “vulture” I see on the horizon may be him. I hope you appreciate how extremely manipulative your husband appears to be. Because of it, and since he has spoken the “D” word, consult a lawyer to ensure that your interests will be protected regardless of his motives. I’m saying that in case the woman turns out to be healthier than both of you. Dear Abby: How do you help someone who doesn’t want to be helped?

himself to death. He was laid off two years ago, and I know he is depressed and has given up on life. It has reached the point where he is showing signs of cirrhosis, but he refuses to do anything about it. The last time he saw a doctor was three years ago. The doctor said Greg’s liver functions were not normal and he needed to stop drinking. I’ve tried to make my son listen to reason, to no avail. My sister tells me if I don’t get Greg some help, I could be charged with adult neglect. But I don’t know how to fix this. The outcome is increasingly bleak. What can I do? — Mom With A Problem Dear Mom: If the inability to convince a substanceaddicted adult relative to get help were against the law, there wouldn’t be enough prisons to hold all the “offenders.” As much as you love your son, you can’t “fix” his alcohol addiction. You should, however, find the nearest Al-Anon group and attend some meetings. And while you are at it, bring your sister with you because she has a lot to learn. Chief among the lessons is that someone else’s drinking is not another person’s fault or responsibility to control. I am sorry for your pain, because I’m sure it is considerable.

Brown a suspect in another assault By Jessica Contrera The Washington Post

R&B singer Chris Brown is beginning 2016 the way he ended 2015: as the subject of never-ending controversy. In December, Brown’s history of assault led to a canceled overseas tour and a canceled TV show appearance. Now, he’s being investigated for alleged battery of a female fan in Las Vegas. The morning after Brown performed at a Vegas nightclub, police received a call from a woman who said the singer struck her and took her phone when she tried to take a photo of him. The Associated Press reported that the altercation took place at the Palms Casino Resort, where Brown was staying. By the time investigators arrived at the resort, Brown had left. He is now a suspect in a case of misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor theft. Nicole Perna, Brown’s representative, has said the claims are “unequivocally untrue” and a “complete fabrication.” She told The Associated Press the woman “was escorted out of the private after party at the Palms Casino Resort for

being disruptive and out of control. Once she was in the hallway, while waiting for Chris Brown’s security to bring out her phone, she had a total meltdown — throwing her purse to the ground and claiming that she ‘could buy everyone in the hotel’ — as witnessed by numerous people waiting to get into the party. The Palms Casino Resort security also saw her wild behavior via hotel security cameras and immediately came up to the hallway to escort her out of the hotel.” In a similar statement to Rolling Stone, Perna identified the victim’s name and said the woman has a “pattern” of “making false accusations.” Brown’s own pattern of committing assault is well established. In perhaps the most highly publicized case of domestic violence in recent memory, Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting singer and then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Despite widely circulated photos of Rihanna’s badly bruised face, Brown reached a plea deal that earned him community service and five years probation, a punishment widely criticized as soft “celebrity justice.”


Chris Brown performs at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Dec. 18. Las Vegas police are investigating an allegation of battery against the R&B singer. Lt. Jeff Goodwin said authorities received a call Saturday about the alleged battery at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

While on probation, Brown punched a Maryland man in the nose outside the W Hotel in Washington. The singer and his bodyguard eventually pleaded guilty, leading to multiple stints in rehabilitation programs, a major lawsuit and a few months of jail time. Before and after these incidents, Brown’s bio makes for a long string of reported altercations, including with fellow musicians Drake and Frank Ocean, as well as in the dressing room of “Good Morning America.” His criminal record has undoubtedly damaged

his reputation and ability to tour. He has canceled shows after being denied entry into Britain, Canada, and in December, Australia and New Zealand. That same month, his appearance on “The Daily Show” was canceled a day after the Daily Beast reported the show’s staffers were wary about having the singer as a guest. Yet Brown’s musical success marches on. After selling 162,000 copies, his latest album “Royalty” (named after his daughter) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart last week.


‘Deer Hunter,’ ‘Encounters’ cinematographer dies LOS ANGELES — The legendary cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, best known for “The Deer Hunter” and “Close Encounters of the Third

Kind,” has died. His business partner, Yuri Neyman, confirmed that Zsigmond died Friday in Big Sur, California. He was 85.

The Hungarian-born Zsigmond helped define cinema’s American New Wave in the 1970s through iconic collaborations and a preference for natural light.

He first gained renown for his collaboration with Robert Altman on classics “McCabe & Mrs. Miller” and “The Long Goodbye.” Associated Press

GLENDALE, Arizona — The Seattle Seahawks restored all they had lost the previous week. And then some. Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes. Tyler Lockett set a franchise record for the most punt-return yards in a game. And the Seahawks led 30-6. All by halftime.

LENDALE, Ariz. — Pete Carroll warned you last week. Yes, the game against Arizona was the 16th of the regular season, but the Seahawks were going to approach it as if it were a playoff game. It ended up looking a lot like a certain Super Bowl. More than any game since, the Seahawks that dumped the Cardinals 36-6 on Sunday convincingly resembled SUNDAY’S GAME the 2013 group Wild-card Playoffs that blitzed the Denver Broncos Seattle at Minnesota, 10 a.m. in Super Bowl TV: NBC (5) Radio: ESPN (710 AM) XLVIII. That’s the last time they seemed this dominant against a true high-quality team. The timing and the magnitude of the destruction of the NFC West Division titlists makes an obvious statement: By playing at the level they had in the two preceding Super Bowl seasons, it seems unwise to bet against them making it to a third straight.

Vikings beat Packers to win NFC North, set up rematch with Seahawks By Matt Vensel Star Tribune

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Vikings’ push to be kings of the NFC North for the first time since 2009 finally got rewarded Sunday night as they defeated the Green Bay Packers 20-13 for the division

title. The Vikings relied on stingy defense to take a 17-point lead early into the fourth quarter and hold on to stop two-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field to win their first division title under second-year coach Mike Zimmer

and get their first victory in Green Bay since 2009. Rodgers made two passes into the end zone to end the game, but one flew beyond the end line and Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes knocked down a final Hail Mary. The Vikings were 1-10-1 in their

SEATTLE — He jumped and screamed and waved his arms, punching the air with joyous fury as he stalked in front of the scorer’s table, the kind of celebration this team has not frequently initiated in recent years. Lorenzo Romar is not an emotional man. Not outwardly, anyway. But the improbability of what the Washington Huskies accomplished Sunday afternoon at Hec Edmundson Pavilion sent him, momentarily, into some kind of merriment, the crowd of 7,031 in full throat along with him. Few of them would have believed an hour prior that Washington would win this game against USC, 87-85, after trailing by 22 points with fewer than 14 minutes to play. That they would chisel that deficit with a 24-5 run that spanned just 61⁄2 minutes. That they would then fall behind by seven points, twice, but finish the game on a 9-0 run to leave Hec Ed with a 2-0 record to start Pac-12 play. “It’s a special group,” Romar said. “You don’t get groups like this all the time.” And you don’t see games like this all the time. The 22-point comeback is the largest for a Romar team at UW — the largest margin the Huskies had overcome previously under Romar was 16 in a win at LSU on Dec. 29, 2007. “The whole time, we were just like, ‘We’re going to make a run, we’re going to make a run,’” said senior guard Andrew Andrews, who scored 24 points after tying his career high with 35 on Friday against UCLA. “It starts on defense. That was our mindset through every timeout — once we start getting stops, we’ll come back.” They did, thanks to two players in particular — Huskies guard Dejounte Murray, because he played his best game of the season, and Trojans guard Julian Jacobs, because he didn’t play at all. Jacobs left the game with 16:18 remaining after he jumped for a rebound, landed and sprained his left ankle. Teammates carried him to the bench, and he didn’t return. At that point, USC (12-3, 1-1) led, 61-42, and seemed poised to run away with it. Jacobs had a lot to do with that — he scored 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and began the second half with a pair of ferocious dunks. His ballhandling skills made it difficult for the Huskies to trap and press the Trojans in the backcourt, and USC controlled the game’s tempo because of that. They spent the first half tossing in easy baskets

and holding Washington to just 25 percent shooting from the field. In some ways, the Huskies were fortunate to trail just 46-36 after a first half that Romar described as “flat.” With Jacobs out, the Huskies applied more pressure, forced turnovers and scrambled back into the game. Murray led that effort. He scored 18 of his careerhigh 29 points during the game’s final 13:30, a span in which UW outscored USC 43-19. Meanwhile, Romar grew demonstrative on the sideline, urging his team to increase its defensive energy. “I just stay aggressive, every single game,” Murray said. “It’s either going to go my way or it’s not. I just stayed aggressive, my team believed in me, and everything was falling.” Murray attacked the rim and scored. He drew fouls and made free throws. He made both of his 3-point attempts, including the one that cut the deficit to single-digits for the first time since early in the first half, trimming USC’s lead to 71-63 with eight minutes to play. Andrews, David Crisp and Matisse Thybulle each made important 3-pointers in that span, too. But Murray was the catalyst. “The way we were playing, pressing and trapping, turnovers, up and down — that right there is bliss for him,” Romar said. “It was just (Murray) going out there

hooping, and there’s not too many better at it than him.” With a little less than a minute remaining, Murray slashed to the hoop and scored to make it an 85-82 game. USC inbounded to sophomore guard Jordan McLaughlin, who was trapped and called for traveling, one of his eight turnovers. Murray drove to the rim and scored again, a short shot off the backboard. That made it a onepoint game. And again, the Huskies used their pressure to force a Trojans turnover — their 21st of the game — on a steal by Murray. With 29 seconds remaining, Murray hoisted a midrange jumper that missed off the rim. But Andrews sprinted to the hoop, grabbed the rebound and put it in the basket, giving the Huskies just their second lead of the game, this one at 86-85. Elijah Stewart missed a shot on the other end. Andrews rebounded and split a pair of free throws. And Katin Reinhardt couldn’t save the Trojans with his last-second heave. So the Huskies (10-4, 2-0) carry an unbeaten Pac-12 record into their first conference road game on Saturday at Washington State. Romar hopes this weekend stays with them. “These wins are going to be so valuable for us, not only in the win-loss column, but in terms of our own psyche, and our own belief within ourselves,” Romar said. “We come back in double overtime and beat UCLA, but now we can always say, ‘Fellas, we were down 21 with 15 minutes to go.’ Hopefully we’re not in that position (again), but now there are not a whole lot of situations where we can’t say we still have a chance.”

PULLMAN — Josh Hawkinson, a graduate of Shorewood High School, had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Washington State beat No. 25 UCLA 85-78 on Sunday night. Que Johnson and Renard Suggs each scored 14 points for WSU (9-5, 1-1 Pac-12). The Cougars lost to Southern California in their conference opener Friday night. Isaac Hamilton scored 27 points for UCLA (9-6, 0-2), which was coming off a double-overtime loss at Washington. UCLA’s Bryce Alford, coming off a 30-point performance at Washington, was held to nine points. Washington State shot 60 percent in the second half and 55 percent in the game and held the Bruins to 41-percent shooting.

PAC-12 MEN Arizona 94, Arizona State 82 TEMPE, Ariz. — Gabe York scored 22 points, Allonzo Trier added 20 and No. 8 Arizona outlasted rival Arizona State in both teams’ Pac-12 opener. Arizona (13-1) dominated inside in the first half and built a 16-point advantage in the second half. The Sun Devils (10-4) cut Arizona’s lead to six with 3 minutes left but couldn’t climb all the way back Tra Holder scored 24 points for the Sun Devils.

Colorado 56, Stanford 55 STANFORD, Calif. — Josh Scott had 14 points and 14 rebounds and Colorado beat Stanford, ending a twogame losing streak. George King added 12 points for the Buffaloes (123, 1-1 Pac-12), who extended their winning streak over Stanford to five games. Josh Fortune had 10. Michael Humphrey scored 19 points to lead the Cardinal (8-5, 1-1), who saw a three-game winning streak end. Stanford had won six of its previous seven. Scott, one of two players to rank among the top 10 in the Pac-12 in scoring, rebounding, field-goal percentage and free-throw percentage, recorded his 30th career double-double, and his sixth in the past 11 games.

it 20-3. Defensive end Everson Griffen swatted the ball out of the hands of Rodgers from behind just as he was attempting a pass. After an officials review, the touchdown was upheld. That game-changing play came shortly after quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was intercepted by Packers safety Micah Hyde in Vikings territory after he tried to throw a pass with his left hand while being tackled by Packers defensive end Mike Neal. The Packers rallied back, however, on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to Richard Rodgers and a 43-yard field goal by Mason Crosby with 5:39 left in the fourth quarter to cut the Vikings’ lead to 20-13. There were a few heartstopping moments to go. The Packers marched again and reached the Vikings’ 13-yard line, but on fourthand-goal, Rodgers’ pass in the end zone was intercepted by Rhodes The Vikings scored first on the opening drive after a near-touchdown.

charge. The announcement came just hours after Cleveland finished a 3-13 season with a 28-12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pettine went 10-22 in two years, dropping 18 of his final 21 games after a promising 7-4 start in 2014. Pettine’s job security had been in doubt for months, and not even Haslam’s vow at the start of training camp not to “blow things up” could stop another regime change in Cleveland. Pettine was the team’s seventh full-time coach since 1999, and the team has changed coaches and general managers five times since 2008.

SUNDAY | Roundup

Broncos wrap up the AFC’s No. 1 seed Associated Press DENVER — Peyton Manning replaced Brock Osweiler at quarterback in the third quarter Sunday and led the Denver Broncos to a 27-20 win over the San Diego Chargers. Combined with New England’s loss at Miami, the Broncos (12-4) secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. An interception by Denver safety Shiloh Keo, a graduate of Archbishop Murphy High School, set up the game-winning touchdown.

Bills 22, Jets 17 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Ryan Fitzpatrick threw interceptions on each of New York’s final three drives and the Jets’ playoff hopes were dashed. The Jets would have made the postseason for the first time since 2010 with a win.

Steelers 28, Browns 12 CLEVELAND — Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes, Pittsburgh’s defense dominated and the Steelers slipped into the AFC playoffs with a win over Cleveland, which fired coach Mike Pettine and GM Ray Farmer after the game. The Steelers had to win and needed Buffalo to

knock off the New York Jets to make the postseason.

Dolphins 20, Patriots 10 MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — New England quarterback Tom Brady was sacked twice and knocked down at least half a dozen times, and New England missed a chance to clinch the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. Brady watched the Patriots’ final offensive series from the sideline. He threw a season-low 21 passes.

Texans 30, Jaguars 6 HOUSTON — J.J. Watt had three sacks and Jonathan Grimes scored twice to help the Texans clinch the AFC South. Houston plays host to Kansas City next weekend in a wildcard game.

Bengals 24, Ravens 16 CINCINNATI — AJ McCarron threw a pair of touchdown passes as Cincinnati (12-4) matched the best record in franchise history — the Bengals also won 12 games during the 1981 and 1988 seasons, and they reached the Super Bowl both times. Cincinnati plays host to Pittsburgh next weekend in a wild-card game.

Colts 30, Titans 24

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes, Kansas City sacked Derek Carr six times, and the Chiefs collected a franchise-best 10th straight win. The Chiefs are headed to Houston for a wild-card game next weekend.

INDIANAPOLIS — Recently signed Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley each threw a touchdown pass in the first half and Jerrell Freeman scored on a 23-yard interception in the second for Indianapolis. The Colts (8-8) won their last two games to avoid their first losing season since 2011, but didn’t get the help they needed — a Houston loss and seven other games to go the right way — to make the postseason.

Eagles 35, Giants 30

Saints 20, Falcons 17

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants suffered another tough loss in what may have been coach Tom Coughlin’s final game. It was the third straight defeat for the Giants and finished a third straight losing season and a fourth straight year out of the playoffs. Coughlin, who led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles in his 12 seasons, has a year left on his contract. His future is expected to be decided soon by co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch.

ATLANTA — Jamarca Sanford’s interception at the Atlanta 25 with less than two minutes remaining set up Kai Forbath’s 30-yard game-winning field goal as time expired.

Redskins 34, Cowboys 23

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Phil Dawson kicked a 23-yard field goal 11:33 into overtime to lift San Francisco past St. Louis. Rams coach Jeff Fisher finished 7-9 — his fourth straight losing season with the team.

The San Francisco 49ers fired head coach Jim Tomsula on Sunday night after one disappointing season. Elevated from his defensive-line coaching duties in a surprising promotion by CEO Jed York last January, Tomsula went 5-11 in his only season.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (25) celebrates with outside linebacker Bruce Irvin during the second half of Sunday’s game.

Bennett plays through pain By Gregg Bell

with herniated disks playing in a game (when) regular people can’t walk.”

The News Tribune

GLENDALE, Arizona — In the middle of last week, Michael Bennett was away from his team to get an injection into his pained toe that has troubled him all season. Sunday, he made a family decision to rejoin the Seattle Seahawks. As only he can. “It’s super painful. About a level 10, on a 1-10 scale. As high as it can get,” the Pro Bowl defensive end said after he hit Arizona’s quarterback Carson Palmer four times in the first half, replacement Drew Stanton once in the third quarter and split a sack with fellow end Cliff Avril in the fourth quarter of Seattle’s 36-6 demolition of the NFC West-champion Cardinals. “But at this level I have three daughters. And they are going to have weddings,” Bennett said with a wry grin. “So I just play through it.” Bennett made the point that unlike the veterans with guaranteed contracts over multiple years in Major League Baseball or the NBA, NFL players have very little guaranteed beyond the present. As in, this week and day, let alone season. Bennett has also made it clear — and wellknown — he wants a new contract richer than the four-year, $28.5 million one he signed before the 2014 season. And he’s playing like it. He finished the regular season with a career-high 10 sacks and 29 hits on quarterbacks, and last month got selected to his first Pro Bowl. His five QB hits Sunday were a season high. He said it was “up in the air” whether he’d play four days after getting the injection. “At the end of the day everybody is hurt in the NFL. That’s just how it is. It’s not the NBA,” said Bennett, who sometimes wears a jersey of his home-state San Antonio Spurs around the locker room. “You can’t take two weeks off and come back and play the next week. It’s week by week, and you have to be able to play through pain. “That’s why people love football. They see guys

Lane returns to site of Super Bowl injuries Can’t blame Jeremy Lane if he’d rather not have a playoff rematch inside University of Phoenix Stadium this month, which is a Seahawks-Cardinals possibility. Lane started at right cornerback as he and DeShawn Shead continued to alternate some between cornerback and fifth, nickel defensive back. Lane intercepted Palmer on Arizona’s second drive. That gave Lane two interceptions, a broken arm and a torn knee ligament in his last six plays on the University of Phoenix Stadium field. He broke the arm and injured the knee on his return of an interception of Tom Brady in the end zone during the first quarter of Seattle’s loss to New England in Super Bowl 49 here on Feb. 1. Lane had major surgery that night at a nearby hospital during the Super Bowl. He missed the first two months of this season recovering from those injuries. Then later Sunday, Lane injured his oblique muscle. Head coach Pete Carroll said that was the Seahawks’ only new injury from Sunday’s game.

Reserves step up Strong safety Kam Chancellor missed his third consecutive game with a bruised pelvis. Kelcie McCray started for him and again drew Carroll’s praise for his tackling and overall play. Right guard J.R. Sweezy was out with a concussion. Rookie Mark Glowinksi replaced Sweezy and twice bulldozed Cardinals defensive linemen on third-andshort runs in the first half. On the second one, the fourth-round draft choice from West Virginia pancaked Arizona’s Rodney Gunter onto his back from his right-guard position all the way to behind where the left tackle lines up. Bryce Brown ran behind that gem for a first down. Left tackle Russell Okung missed his second consecutive game with a strained calf. Alvin Bailey started for him again. Tight end Luke Willson also missed the game with a concussion. That allowed Chase Coffman to be active for the first time with the Seahawks and score his first Seattle touchdown. Coffman, signed, cut and re-signed by Seattle this season, was beaming in the locker room afterward over his second career touchdown. After the win Carroll said he was “very optimistic” Chancellor, Sweezy, Okung and Willson will be able to start next weekend in the playoff opener.

Rookie Glowinski plays ‘like a pro’ Dave Boling The News Tribune

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Seattle Seahawks center Patrick Lewis offered the best compliment that rookie guard Mark Glowinski could have received after the first start of his NFL career. “He played like a pro today,” Lewis said of Glowinski after the Hawks’ 36-6 win over the Cardinals. Glowinski, a fourth-round draft pick out of West Virginia, stepped in for injured J.R. Sweezy (concussion) against one of the best defenses in the league. “He played his butt off,” Lewis said. “He was solid, and he did a good job communicating. We spent a lot of time this week making sure he knew what his job was.” Joining Glowinski in the lineup was fellow reserve Alvin Bailey, who started at left tackle while Russell Okung nursed an injured calf. The line helped quarterback Russell Wilson stay upright

(only one sack), and cleared the way for 145 rushing yards, with Christine Michael picking up 102 on 17 carries. Glowinski looked up to the challenge, handling his man in pass protection and firing off the ball well on rushes. The nerves, he said, only hit him on the first play. “I feel like I got the jitters out in the preseason,” Glowinski said. “It was pretty awesome to just be a part of this.” Tackle Garry Gilliam lined up next to Glowinski all game, and said the rookie played about as he would have expected. “He does his thing in practice all the time,” Gilliam said. “It was just a matter of him getting the chance. I expected him to go out and succeed. I’m excited about watching his career grow.” Gilliam said there were a few times during the game that he and Glowinski “had to improvise on things, but that’s the way it always is for the offensive line.” Bailey also started last week against the Rams, a loss in

which Wilson was under heavy pressure, taking 13 hits. “It was good for us to collectively come out and be on the same page, especially after last week,” Bailey said. “The offensive line really needs to be one (unit) ... you always have to step in and be a part of it. To put in a good week of work together and come out and showcase it like this, we were able to come in and get the win.” The Hawks were able to handle the varied blitzes that the Cardinals like to run, and that discouraged them from blitzing more often. “We picked up some of their favorite blitzes,” Lewis said. “On one of them we threw a touchdown against it and that took them out of their plan.” Lewis said he was proud of the unit, especially the way the reserves stepped in. “We worked hard through the week,” Lewis said. “We laid an egg last week, so we wanted to bounce back and show everybody we can play Seahawks football.”

Stadium on Sunday. “When we hit on all cylinders,” linebacker Bruce Irvin said, “ain’t nobody in the world can mess with us.” Seattle’s defense restored itself, in particular, days after linebacker K.J. Wright noted how communication and assignment errors disappear in road games. The Seahawks allowed the NFL’s No. 1 offense in yards and points just 232 yards, and one touchdown. Head coach Pete Carroll ended his postgame message in the locker room to his roaring players by congratulating the defensive players for finishing the regular season leading the NFL in scoring defense for fourth consecutive year. It is the first time since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger that any team has done that. The Seahawks (10-6) won for the sixth time in seven games overall and fifth consecutive time on the road. That’s timely given Seattle opens the playoffs next Sunday at 10:05 a.m. Pacific Time at NFC North-champion Minnesota (11-5), after the Vikings beat Green Bay on Sunday night. Seattle, the NFC’s sixth seed, beat the third-seeded Vikings 38-7 on Dec. 6 while not allowing a defensive touchdown. It was a performance about as dominant as the Seahawks’ one Sunday against the Cardinals. So, yes, Seattle is feeling pretty good about the playoffs. “We are in a very good spot right now,” wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “This lets us know we are on the right track.” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians pulled starting quarterback Carson Palmer at halftime of this rout. Palmer completed just 12 of 25 passes for 129 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He also got an earful from Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman following one play in the third quarter. Sherman yapped at the quarterback about Cardinals receiver John Brown saying in August on Phoenix radio he didn’t think Sherman could cover him one on one. Brown had four catches on 11 targets, for 14, inconsequential yards Sunday. Sherman leaped and knocked away Palmer’s deep, third-down pass to Brown in the first quarter, the only time this game was in doubt. When he saw Brown on the sidelines in the third quarter, Sherman yelled at Palmer — then squatted in a demonstration to looked a lot like Baldwin’s toiletsquat celebration in the end zone a few yards behind Palmer during February’s Super Bowl. Sherman said, no, his act was to demonstrate to Palmer that Brown was sitting on the bench, as a non-factor. Officials didn’t appreciate the nuance and flagged Sherman for an unsportsmanlike penalty. “That Brown kid said I couldn’t guard him 1 on 1. Laughable,” Sherman said. Yes, Seattle’s swagger is intact for the postseason. Food for thought for possible NFC-playoffs rematch against the No. 2-seed Cardinals (13-3), who hadn’t trailed by more than 10 points since the day after Halloween until Seattle showed up as a touchdown underdog Sunday. The Seahawks have outscored Arizona 71-12 in the teams’ last two games in this stadium. That was the message Carroll wanted to reinforce by keeping Wilson in this runaway until Tarvaris Jackson finally entered with 14:13 to go. “It’s fun,” linebacker K.J. Wright said. “We just come into another team’s house and make them be quiet.” Wilson completed 19 of 28 passes for 197 yards. The last of his three touchdown passes was the best, to Jermaine Kearse. Wilson exquisitely placed the ball on the covered wide receiver’s hands in stride at the side boundary of the end zone late in the second quarter to make it 30-6. Wilson also threw for TDs in the flat to tight end Chase Coffman, who’d been signed then cut earlier this season and was playing in his first Seahawks game, and to fullback Will Tukuafu. It was each receiver’s second career touchdowns. “We’re finding our rhythm,” Sherman said. “We’re playing exactly the way we want to.”

Seattle Seahawks fans cheer during the second half of Sunday’s game.

Report Card Here’s how the Seattle Seahawks grade out in their 36-6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday’s regular season finale:


Quarterback Russell Wilson was A once again imperious, throwing three more touchdown passes. The

running game got back on track, with Christine Michael surpassing the 100-yard mark. The Seahawks gained just 354 yards, but that’s because the team was working with short fields. One knows the offense is running on all cylinders when guys named Bryce Brown, Will Tukuafu and Chase Coffman score the first three touchdowns. Defense The Seahawks Tyler Lockett set up Seattle touchdowns with punt returns of 66 and 42 yards against the Cardinals.


Lockett is ‘one of a kind’ Rookie receiver breaks Seahawks record with 139 yards on punt returns By Gregg Bell The News Tribune

GLENDALE, Arizona — Tyler Lockett was gone from the postgame locker-room scene here in the same way he does everything else. In a flash. The Seahawks’ Pro Bowl rookie was the star attraction for cameras and microphones on the field, in tunnels, in hallways — everywhere — around University of Phoenix Stadium. Everyone was following his latest performance in Seattle’s 36-6 steamrolling of the Arizona Cardinals. Sunday brought the latest examples why Seattle traded up 27 picks with Washington to get to the top of the third round of May’s draft to get him, and why he got voted into the Pro Bowl as a return specialist after just four months in the league “He’s one of a kind,” quarterback Russell Wilson said. “He just looked unstoppable,” head coach Pete Carroll added. Lockett began his rookie year as the first Seahawks player on the field for the first day of training camp in July. He ended his debut regular season breaking a 17-yearold Seahawks record with 139 yards on punt returns. Actually, he smashed it. The old mark was 106, by Charlie Rogers from Sept. 26, 1999, at Pittsburgh. Lockett bagged that by halftime Sunday. Lockett’s 379 yards in punt returns this regular season was second-most by a rookie in Seahawks’ history. Bobby Joe Edmonds had 419 debuting in 1986. Adding his 36 yards receiving on two catches Sunday, Lockett set a Seahawks rookie record for most all-purpose yards at 1,915 (852 on kickoff returns, 664 receiving, 379 on punt returns and 20 on rushes from scrimmage). His 51 catches in the regular

Yeah, that’s down the road, but I think this win was every bit that significant. And that makes it ominous for any team the Seahawks will face along the way — especially the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle’s wild-card-round opponent on Sunday. All-Pro Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, after the win over Arizona, said that “people sometimes forget who we are.” Hey, in early parts of the season, the Seahawks seemed to have forgotten who they were, too. They were disjointed at times, and inconsistent. Even as recently as last week, they brought questions upon themselves, losing 23-17 to St. Louis. But Sunday’s game reminded everyone who they are. The quality of the opponent amplified the statement. The Arizona team they spanked had been on a nine-game winning streak, had the No. 2 offense and No. 5 defense in the NFL, and at least in the first half, the Cardinals were motivated by the possibility of earning the NFC’s top seed and homefield advantage all the way through the playoffs. But they ended up being outplayed by the Seahawks in all phases — rushing for a mere 27 yards, with quarterback Carson Palmer

season were second on the team to Doug Baldwin’s 78. That’s a full season’s worth and then some for the son of former NFL wide receiver Kevin Lockett whom Seattle drafted to be its new kick and punt returner and fix a big problem last season. Lockett is doing that. Exquisitely. He’s continually putting Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense in prime field position for short drives to scores. His returns in the first half on Sunday started Seattle at the Arizona 8 and Arizona 27. That directly resulted in 14 of the Seahawks’ 30 points before halftime. “I think he’s rookie of the year,” Wilson said of Lockett. “There are some other guys (such

completing just 12 passes. On offense, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw three more touchdown passes to up his total to a record 34 for the season. And with two of the five starting offensive linemen out with injury, running back Christine Michael still managed to rush for 102 yards on 17 carries. “To do this against this kind of offense is real big time,” linebacker K.J. Wright said of the defensive dominance. “It shows you we can take really good teams and make them average, and we can take really good players and make them average, too. When we just do our thing, no one can stop us.” The Cardinals certainly couldn’t. Against a defense that has punished him in the past, Wilson continued his streak of super-human efficiency. With three more touchdowns against the Cardinals, he pushed his total in the second half of the season to 25 touchdowns with only two interceptions. Extrapolate that over the course of an entire season, and it would be a ridiculous 50-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. With Wilson playing at that level, and the defense again limiting opponents to the fewest points in the league (for the fourth consecutive season), the Seahawks are worthy successors to the team’s two most recent predecessors. The Seahawks who enter this postseason

as St. Louis’ 1,106-yard rusher Todd Gurley), but you watch Tyler and the different things that he can do. The explosiveness in the passing game. He’s great on third down. He made some big-time, red-zone catches ... The punt returns. The kick returns. “You think about what a special player he is.” Tight end Chase Coffman’s 8-yard TD catch in the second quarter came after the Kansas State-record setter took a punt at the Seahawks 18, made one move left to juke a ruined Cardinal, then zapped the rest of Arizona’s punt team on a 66-yard sprint to the 8-yard line. Teammate Richard Sherman thought he’d been called for a block-in-the-back foul when he saw the foul at the start of the return, and he was hopping mad to the official who threw it. “I was like, ‘C’mon. C’mon!’” Sherman said. But the flag was on Arizona’s Brittan Golden for grabbing Sherman’s face mask. Sherman walked off the field almost sheepishly, as if he’d gotten away with something. Lockett also had a 31-yard punt return later in the half. Steven Hauschka missed a 40-yard field goal at the end of the ensuing, short drive. Lockett should have finished with 161 yards on punt returns; he had a 22-yard return negated by a foul for holding on Sherman in the first half. Sherman didn’t agree with that call nearly as much as he did the bigger, later one in his favor. The Cardinals finally, wisely began punting away from Lockett after halftime. But it was 30-6 by then. “Any time you can shift the field the way he does, it’s tough on a defense,” Wilson said. “Any time he has the ball in his hands he may score. That’s a good feeling. “His professionalism, I think that’s where it starts ... the way he works.”

have an edge on the last two clubs, having the experience gained in the previous playoffs. They know what it takes to win a Super Bowl, and have learned how to lose one, too. “We know we’ve still got a lot of football to play,” receiver Doug Baldwin said. “This gives us momentum, but sometimes that’s over-rated.” The upset loss to the Rams last week, in its own way, was important, too, Baldwin said. “It wasn’t all bad, in the grand scheme of things,” Baldwin said. “We’re on the path we’re supposed to be on, and that’s what you want to see heading into the playoffs.” Sherman was asked about the slow start to the seasons, the external doubts, the injuries to key players like running back Marshawn Lynch and tight end Jimmy Graham. “That’s the heart of a champion; you have the peaks and valleys in a season, and a champion overcomes those valleys,” he said. “Guys just continued to stay the course, guys just keep fighting, keep pushing.” Sherman was told that a sentiment among Cardinals fans is concern over the possibility that the Seahawks will eventually end up back in Arizona meeting the Cardinals again in the NFC title game. “They should be concerned,” Sherman said. After Sunday’s game, so should everybody else in the conference.

Arizona came into the game A leading the NFL in both points and yards. But the Seahawks shut

down the Cardinals’ offense completely, limiting them to 232 yards. Quarterback Carson Palmer completed just 48 percent of his passes and didn’t come back out for the second half. Arizona managed just 27 yards on the ground. And Seattle, which has had trouble generating turnovers this season, had three interceptions. Special teams

Returner Tyler Lockett had a Arecord-setting game, gaining 139 yards on punt returns,

which is a Seahawks single-game record. Lockett’s returns helped Seattle dominate the field-position battle in the first half. Kicker Steven Hauschka had a a couple hiccups, missing an extra point and a 40-yard field goal. However, he made a pair of 52-yarders and righted himself by the end of the game. Seattle’s coverage was also excellent the few times it was called into action. Coaching

Pete Carroll said all along that, A despite little being at stake, he would not ease up and rest players

for the playoffs. That decision paid off big time as the Seahawks got the statement victory they wanted heading into the postseason, and also righted the ship following last week’s unexpected home loss to St. Louis. Seattle even managed to get out of the game without any serious injuries. Overall

The Seahawks couldn’t have A asked for a better game heading into the playoffs. Many consid-

ered Arizona, which had won nine straight, the best team in the NFL. But Seattle went on the road and smacked the Cardinals in all facets of the game. The Seahawks will have to hit the road again in the postseason, but it’s a sure bet no high seed wants to see Seattle on its schedule. — Nick Patterson, Herald Writer
