Couple held after ‘tortured’ infant dies By Rikki King and Scott North Herald Writers

EVERETT — An Everett couple has been arrested in connection with the death of the woman’s

3-month-old daughter. The baby, identified in court papers by the initials M.M.S., appeared to have suffered longterm abuse. She had a severely broken arm. The baby had never received medical attention for

the injury, which appeared to be weeks old, according to a police report. She had other fractures, including broken ribs, plus a black eye and a gash on her chin. She also had pneumonia and meningitis.

The girl’s mother called 911 on Dec. 18, saying the baby apparently had suffered an allergic reaction and became unresponsive. The woman, her boyfriend and three other children were homeless and staying at the

raffic congestion will fuel another year of debate on how to get people to their destinations in faster, if not more predictable, fashion. This year’s biggest scrap in Snohomish County is likely to be whether voters decide a 20-year-old promise to bring light rail to downtown Everett is worth keeping — even it means paying higher taxes and waiting another 20 years for the first train to arrive. Back in the mid-90s leaders of the fledgling Sound Transit pledged to construct a light rail system connecting Everett with Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma and SeaTac Airport. There’s money to get trains to Lynnwood by 2023 and its leaders are mapping out a $15 billion service expansion that would include reaching Everett sometime after 2030.

Paul Roberts, vice chairman of Sound Transit, stands at Paine Field on Thursday. Roberts wants light rail to come to Everett to support a growing workforce “for the next 100 years.”

GOLD BAR — A 1.25-mile stretch of forested land along the Wallace River will now be protected forever as salmon habitat. The land, covering 121 acres on five parcels, was purchased by the environmental nonprofit Forterra in July for $490,000. Forterra, formerly known as the Cascade Land Conservancy, transferred the property to the Tulalip Tribes in November for future management. A conservation easement ensures the property will never be developed. “There’s a stewardship plan that we’ll be working on with the Tulalips” to maintain the tract’s value to the watershed, said Michelle Connor, Forterra’s executive vice president of strategic enterprises. The property on the north bank of the Wallace River consists of five parcels that are a mix of wetlands and mature second-growth forests. It was last logged several decades ago. “The trees have grown back nicely and the land is actually in pretty good shape,” said Daryl Williams, the Tulalip Tribes’ natural resources liaison. The tract is located just west of Gold Bar and close to the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, the Wild Sky Wilderness and other protected lands managed by the state Department of Natural Resources. The land lies across the Wallace River from a state salmon hatchery, and provides habitat for bull

Its fate depends on the electorate and the three men from Snohomish County who serve on the Sound Transit Board of Directors and who could influence the outcome. This November, voters in Snohomish, King and Pierce counties are expected to consider a ballot measure, referred to as ST3, to fund the added service through a combination of higher taxes on property, retail sales and motor vehicles. The agency board is in the midst of deciding what to build with the money, knowing their choices can sway the minds of voters. That’s where Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers, Everett Councilman Paul Roberts and Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling come in. As the county’s delegates on the board, they’ve been united in wanting trains to follow a route that stops near the Boeing Co. plant at Paine Field, then

helicopter to Seattle Children’s Hospital, where she died. Hospital staff told police, “This baby was tortured. There is no way anyone didn’t know what was going on with this baby,” according to the report. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the child’s cause of death. The girl’s mother, Jerrica Schreib, 19, and her boyfriend, Donald Coons, 42, were arrested Friday morning in north Everett. Both

proceeds to Everett. It’s a must-have route but one that could cost about $2 billion more than sending trains directly from Lynnwood to Everett along an I-5 alignment. That’s $2 billion some political leaders in King County are eyeing to pay for additions in Ballard and West Seattle. The Snohomish County trio realizes that compromise may be inevitable, given what’s on the drawing board for other areas. Without a Paine Field stop in the mix, it could be a hard sell to voters. Earling, an original Sound Transit board member from the early 1990s, said the agency must keep its promise to serve Everett before branching out. “It’s our duty, as a board, to stick to that commitment from many years ago,” Earling has said. “We think it’s important to build the right system, as opposed to the cheapest system.” Light rail won’t be the only battleground for

were being held Monday for investigation of first-degree criminal mistreatment of a child, a felony. Bail was set at $500,000 each and maintained after a brief hearing Monday. The arrest report does not specify who is suspected of causing the injuries. Coons is not believed to be the baby’s biological father. He is the father of three other girls, ages 11, 13 and 14, who were living in the motel room, police wrote. The family moved into the motel Dec. 16. The 911 call was made at 5:46 a.m. Dec. 18. When Everett medics saw the baby, her condition didn’t match the

transportation this year. Those four-month-old express toll lanes on I-405 will attract much scrutiny in 2016. The law establishing the lanes on a 17-mile stretch between Lynnwood and Bellevue gives the state Department of Transportation until 2017 to work out the kinks before lawmakers can pull the plug. Rep. Mark Harmsworth, R-Mill Creek, isn’t in the mood to wait and is giving voice to a legion of frustrated drivers congregating online at Harmsworth, a member of the House Transportation Committee, is pushing a bill to get rid of one of the two toll lanes in each direction south of Highway 522, and open up the lanes across the full corridor to all drivers for free on nights and weekends. Meanwhile, drivers throughout 2016 will endure bouts of congestion in the name of progress. Weekend closures for I-5 are on the horizon as crews continue a nearly year-long project to replace the aging bridge expansion joints on I-5 over a

information given to 911, city spokeswoman Meghan Pembroke said. “That led them to believe it was suspicious enough to call police,” she said. Schreib gave investigators varying accounts of how the child had been injured, at first saying nothing unusual had occurred. She later said the baby fell off the bed or that she’d accidentally dropped her. Schreib reportedly told police the gash on the child’s chin was an infected rash and had been seen by a doctor. Hospital staff told police there was no way the child had been seen by a doctor after her arm was broken. A doctor would have been required to call authorities. The baby’s broken arm was partially healed. “The rib fractures varied from new to old based on the pattern of healing observed by medical professionals,” officers wrote. Hospital staff reportedly heard Schreib tell Coons

trio of soggy sloughs. With the bridge over Union Slough completed last fall, the Steamboat and Ebey slough bridges are now in the DOT’s line of sight. Work on Highway 532 over the Davis Slough — rebuilding the only bridge that connects Camano Island with the mainland — is expected to wrap up in early 2016 after delays.

Construction is expected to start in 2016 on a pedestrian bridge from Grand Avenue down to the Everett waterfront. It’s also going to carry pipelines across the steep slope, railroad tracks and West Marine View Drive, replacing deteriorated underground pipelines. Work is expected to last all year and into 2017. Meanwhile, commuters

who rely on Sounder trains hope this year will bring fewer cancellations due to tracks covered in mud. The last of six federally funded slope stabilization projects are due to wrap up this year.

over the phone to come to the hospital but to not talk to detectives or answer any questions. Talking would cause more problems, she reportedly told him. Everett police Dec. 18 also alerted Child Protective Services, which has opened an investigation, CPS spokeswoman Norah West said Monday. The agency had no prior contacts with the baby, West said. The three older girls were placed in state custody. Coons told police that he had never dropped the baby and they should talk to Schreib about what happened. His daughters told police the baby’s health had been declining since “the arm incident” a few weeks earlier. The baby cried constantly and screamed when she was touched. The couple reportedly gave her Tylenol and bound her arm with bandages and a brace. The girls told officers they kept asking the adults to

take the baby to the doctor. During the two days at the motel, the baby had trouble breathing, and she quit eating and moving her head. The girls said that they had been taking care of the baby, along with their father. The baby often was left alone in a car seat outside her parents’ bedroom, the girls told police. She was later moved into another room, with the door kept closed, after her crying kept waking up the adults. The girls were told not to go into that room or pick up the baby. Police allege that Schreib and Coons recklessly harmed the child by denying her medical care. A judge Monday ordered both of them not to have any contact with children without a court-approved supervisor. Detectives with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office also are involved in the case, sheriff’s

spokeswoman Shari Ireton said. They are investigating child mistreatment allegations involving the pair in the unincorporated areas of the county, Ireton said. Coons already is awaiting trial on a methamphetamine possession charge, filed in June. Mill Creek police allegedly caught him with some of the drug during a search of his van in November 2014. Prior to his arrest in the child-mistreatment case he’d been free on $5,000 bail. Coons’ court-appointed attorney, Tom Cox, said his client has had no criminal convictions since 2004. Cox questioned the high bail. “He’s not a risk to the community,” Cox said. “There’s evidence of a lot of stuff to be gathered yet.” Schreib’s attorney said she had no criminal history and asked for her release, saying she was scared and wanted to be out of custody so she could restore her reputation.

“Emotional support dogs” will now be allowed in student housing at Kent State University, which has settled a civil rights lawsuit brought by the U.S. Justice Department claiming the school discriminated against students with psychological disabilities. Banning pets for all students, the 2014 lawsuit alleged, could violate federal law prohibiting discrimination in housing. Colleges across the country are grappling with this issue, as more students with mental illnesses are able to attend university, and as families are increasingly likely to ask for accommodations. But it’s complicated for school officials as they seek to help students with documented real need without making others uncomfortable. “It’s a real balancing act,” said Allan

Rep. McDermott won’t seek a 15th term By Martha Bellisle Associated Press

SEATTLE — Longtime Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington state announced Monday that he will not seek reelection for a 15th time when he completes his term at the end of the year. “I retire from the House forever humbled and grateful to my constituents for their unwavering embrace,” McDermott told reporters. McDermott was first elected in 1988 and is the longest-serving member of the state’s congressional delegation. He has been

re-elected by wide margins, and his seat is certain to stay in Democratic hands. After telling his family about his retirement during his 79th birthday party Dec. 28, he said the first person he called was Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, followed by his congressional colleagues and the people in the community who have counted on him through the years. “I wanted them to know why I was leaving and that it wasn’t easy — this was not an easy decision to make, because I don’t like to quit,” he said. “There are things I still want to do, and I would still like to see happen, but there

comes a time when you say to yourself: enough.” President Barack Obama said McDermott “has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Rep. Jim people of Wash- McDermott, ington state” and D-Wash. has been “a muchneeded voice for his most vulnerable constituents. “Across America, you’ll find families that are better off because Jim McDermott was fighting for them,” the president said. Pelosi said in a statement that McDermott has been a “tenacious

champion of hard-working Americans in Washington and across the United States.” “Throughout all of his four decades of distinguished public service, Jim has shown the strength of his progressive values and the quality of his leadership in expanding opportunity for all Americans,” Pelosi said. He declined to say whether he will back anyone to replace him, but said he hopes that person will be “progressive” and a goodlistener. He said the voters in the 7th Congressional District, which includes most of Seattle and some surrounding suburbs, are “smart, thoughtful and careful,” and they

Goodbye to beloved ‘Grandma’ By Kari Bray Herald Writer

ARLINGTON — Louise Edlen, the grandma whose elegant wave taught hundreds of children about the big value of small gestures, died Christmas Eve. She was 93. Louise was fondly known as “Grandma in the Window” by students who rode the bus home from school in Arlington. She waved from her dining room window when the buses passed her house, and students waved back. It was the highlight of her afternoon for five years, husband Dave Edlen said. This fall, the story of Louise’s bond with a bus driver and a busload of middle school students touched the hearts of people around the country when it was shared by the school district, news outlets and on social media. Louise had a stroke in September and spent several weeks in a recovery center. Driver Carol Mitzelfeldt and the kids on Bus 7 made her a get-well card and a postersized photo of them waving out the windows of the bus. When Louise came home Oct. 27, students greeted her from the bus by pressing letters against the windows to spell out “Welcome Home.” They put up more letters on their last bus ride before winter break, Louise’s daughter, Vicki Walls, said. This time, they spelled “Merry Christmas.” Louise died while the students were on break. Walls expects it’ll be hard for them to hear the news, but she hopes they know how much their kindness meant to her family. Floradelle Louise Edlen, who went by Louise, was born on the last day of 1921 in Berne, Indiana. She was the oldest of four children. At 18, she and a friend took a train to San Diego, where they helped build airplanes at the start of

EVERETT — The number of people displaced by a fatal fire in Everett on New Year’s Eve has grown to more than 150. Many of those are families with children. Community groups are working together on finding them long-term housing and addressing other needs. The name of the adult who was killed in the fire was not made public Monday. There also was no update provided on 12 other people who were hospitalized. That included a 57-year-old woman with critical injuries, and three others who were seriously hurt. The cause of the fire at the Bluffs apartments along W. Casino Road remains under investigation. The American Red Cross continues to operate an emergency shelter at a nearby church. More than 40 people stayed overnight Saturday and Sunday, said Chuck Morrison, director of the Snohomish County branch. On Monday, the conversation was about finding long-term housing, and working with organizations around the city and county, he said. “It’s going to be their hard work and the hard work of a bunch of agencies to try to make that happen,” he said. “There are no easy answers.” The Red Cross has provided 400 meals and 800 snacks for those displaced, Morrison said. In addition, 107 people were seen by nurses and 21 by mentalhealth professionals. “It’s been pretty busy,” he said. The Red Cross is not seeking donations of goods for the victims. “We had a tremendous amount of donations of blankets, clothes and toys,” Morrison said. “At this point, we have more than we can deal with. Financial donations are appreciated. At this point the expenses are for feeding families.” The Faith Community Center, located within Faith Lutheran Church at 6708 Cady Road, also is working with the families on their specific needs. People interested in helping can call 425-971-0402 for more information. A call for donations over the weekend received an overwhelming response, said

World War II. “That was a really big deal for someone from Berne, Indiana,” said Cheri Jensen, her oldest daughter. “But that was just her sense of adventure.” She moved from California to Austin, Texas, where she met and married her first husband, Jason Thibodeaux. They were married for 16 years and had 10 children. He was in the army, and the family lived for a while in Japan and then Germany. Jensen recalls traveling by boat because Louise was terrified of flying. Those days were often tough and unpredictable, but Louise always took care of her family. She met her second husband, Dave Edlen, in El Paso, Texas. They married in 1962. It was a second chance at love for both, and they remained devoted to each other the rest of Louise’s life, Walls said. They had three more children and moved to Kirkland in 1963,

worked three jobs at a time to support the family. Walls remembers growing up in a busy, loving household. There was never a dull moment. Louise welcomed new friends with open arms and adopted stray cats. There were home-cooked meals every night, with food enough for anyone who might drop by. “We all brought a lot of friends home and one thing I loved about Mom is it was never too many,” Walls said. “She’d say, ‘Just throw another potato in the stew.’ ” She had a subtle wit that shined in the one-liners she’d deliver to make people laugh. She was dedicated to her children and husband. She and Dave had a love that inspired their family. Every evening, they made time to be alone so they never lost track of each See GRANDMA, Page A4

“She wouldn’t go to the doctor or dentist so we could go,” Walls said. “She wouldn’t buy herself new clothes so that we could have nicer clothes. We always had what we needed and she’d wear the same old sweater.” She saved up to buy every one of her children

a new outfit at the start of the school year and they had their own shoes rather than hand-medowns, Jensen said. For the Fourth of July, the family usually went to get hamburgers at a drive-in and watch the fireworks. There always were Christmas presents under the

Organizers ended up opening the doors to the neighborhood to share donations because they ran out of room for storage. “They received enough clothes for an army,” she said. Authorities still are tallying the damage to the property. The official count was seven apartments burned and 23 with smoke damage. Additional people reported water damage in their homes. The building is not under any condemnation orders at this point. “It appears the property managers are taking all the right steps,” city spokeswoman Meghan Pembroke said. “They have security posted. They’re setting up fences to keep people out.” The apartment complex was built in 1969 and did not have fire sprinklers. In Everett, large apartment buildings constructed after 1992 are required to have sprinklers. The fire was reported at 7:09 p.m. Thursday. The first rig was on scene within five minutes, and “flames were visible from several windows,” according to a prepared statement by the city. “It appears a number of factors caused the fire to spread very quickly into the attic and through the building, including the lack of a sprinkler system,” the statement said.

Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said she is proud to have fought alongside McDermott. “From his service in the Navy to the state Legislature and the U.S. Congress, Jim dedicated his working life to making the Puget Sound, Washington state and our nation stronger and more prosperous,” Cantwell said in a statement. McDermott said he was proud of the many things he has accomplished during his time in office, including reforms to foster care, affordable housing for people with AIDS, but most important, he said, was his work on the national health plan. A psychiatrist, McDermott said he will spend the rest of the year working on a mental health reform bill. After he completes his term, he said he hopes to become a professor at a medical school, perhaps a dean. He also said he wants to travel more and do some painting. McDermott is known for his liberal views and criticism of the Iraq war. He is a senior member of the tax-policy-writing House Ways and Means Committee. McDermott has drawn attention, not always positive, for sparring with Republicans. He was involved in a long-running legal battle with former Rep. John Boehner, who would go on to become speaker, after leaking an illegally recorded phone call with Boehner and other GOP leaders. McDermott wound up paying Boehner more than $1 million in damages under a court order, but insisted he was defending the First Amendment. In 2002, Republicans labeled McDermott “Baghdad Jim” for comments he made during a trip to Baghdad. He said Bush “would mislead the American people” to get the U.S. into a war in Iraq. On Monday, McDermott said “I’m very proud of having said that and forcing many members of Congress to actually look at that issue.” The war “has turned out to be an unending disaster.” “What we’re looking at today, 14 years later, is the result of the mistake we made by going in there,” he said. “Somebody had to say that stuff and this district gave me the power to do that.” McDermott becomes the 31st House member to announce plans to retire or seek other office.

Obama expanding gun checks David Nakamura The Washington Post

The administration Monday unveiled new executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence and hoping to make progress in one of the most frustrating policy areas of President Barack Obama’s tenure. The package, which Obama plans to announce Tuesday, includes 10 separate provisions, White House officials said. One key proposal would require more gun sellers — especially those who do business on the Internet and at gun shows — to be licensed and would force them to conduct background checks on potential buyers. Obama also would devote more federal funds to treating mental illness — a move that could require congressional approval — and require that firearms lost in transit between a manufacturer and seller be reported to federal authorities. Even before its official unveiling Tuesday morning, Republicans in Congress and on the campaign trail have blasted the idea, and some advocates have threatened to challenge it in court. While it is modest compared to any legislation that Congress could adopt, it will still affect everything from how the federal government might leverage its purchasing power to advance “safe gun” technology to what information federal and local law enforcement officials will share on people who are illegally trying to purchase weapons. Obama, who went over the initiatives in the Oval Office on Monday with administration officials including Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey, said inaction by Congress in the wake of several high-profile mass shootings and other gunrelated violence justified his decision. “It is my strong belief that for us to get our complete arms around the problem, Congress must act,” Obama said after the meeting. In lieu of that, he added, the actions he will announce “are well within my legal authority in the executive branch but also are ones that the overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners, support and believe in.” One of the main provisions is new federal guidance requiring some occasional gun sellers to get licenses from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and conduct background checks on potential buyers. Rather than set a single threshold for what

triggers this licensing requirement, it will be based on a mix of business activities such as whether the seller processes credit cards, rents tables at gun shows and has formal business cards. Other aspects of Obama’s plan aim to bolster the FBI’s background checks system, including a push by the U.S. Digital Service to modernize its processing operations and a proposal to add 200 new ATF agents and investigators to bolster enforcement. Obama will instruct federal agencies, which collectively represent the nation’s largest firearms purchaser, to “explore potential ways” to promote technology that would prevent the accidental discharge or unauthorized use of a gun, according to White House officials. Another measure will require federally licensed gun dealers to report any lost and stolen guns to the National Crime Information Center. Over the past five years,

according to the White House an average of 1,333 guns recovered in criminal investigations each year were traced back to a seller who claimed it was missing but did not report it to authorities. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., issued a statement Monday saying that even without knowing the plan’s exact details, “the president is at minimum subverting the legislative branch, and potentially overturning its will ... This is a dangerous level of executive overreach, and the country will not stand for it.” Though the number of mass shootings in the United States has risen in recent years, overall gun violence is at lower levels than in previous decades. Obama, however, emphasized that gun deaths in the United States remain higher than in other developed countries in almost every category, including suicides. Obama’s determination to act in his final year in office comes after he pledged in the

fall to make guns a political issue after a gunman killed 10 and wounded seven others at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon. He has made public statements after at least 16 mass shootings during his presidency, including the killing of 14 people in San Bernardino, California, last month by a married couple, reportedly inspired by the Islamic State militant group. His administration failed to persuade lawmakers to approve tighter legislative controls on gun sales in 2013, in the wake of the Dec. 2012 killings of 20 elementary school students in Newtown, Connecticut. After that, Obama issued a series of 23 executive actions to tighten controls and increase safety preparations, and he added two more in subsequent years. Administration lawyers have spent months reviewing various proposals to ensure redefining what it means to be “engaged in the business” of selling firearms can withstand legal challenges. It is unclear how many sellers will now be required to obtain a federal license, because the government does not currently track informal sales. A 2001 survey of thousands of state and federal prison inmates by the Bureau of Justice Statistics found that more than two-thirds of those who had used a gun in a crime had acquired it from a source other than a licensed dealer and did not undergo background check. Obama is to talk about his new policies Tuesday, and will participate in a televised town hall at George Mason University two days later, which will be televised on CNN.

‘Cloak of secrecy’ over military sex abuse By Richard Lardner, Eileen Sullivan and Meghan Hoyer Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The sexual assault of military dependents occurs hundreds of times each year, according to data the Defense Department provided exclusively to The Associated Press. There were at least 1,584 substantiated cases between fiscal years 2010 and 2014, according to the data, which is the most current available. The abuse is committed most often by male enlisted troops, followed by family members. The figures offer greater insight into the sexual abuse of children committed by service members, a problem of uncertain scale due to a lack of transparency into the military’s legal proceedings. With more than 1 million military dependents, the number of cases appears statistically small. But for a profession that prides itself on honor and discipline, any episodes of abuse cast a pall. Those numbers fall wellshort of offering a full picture.

The ages of the offenders and victims, the locations of the incidents and the branch of service that received the report of sexual abuse were omitted. The Defense Department said in a statement that “information that could unintentionally uniquely identify victims was withheld from release to eliminate possible ‘re-victimization’ of the innocent.” It’s also unclear how many of the incidents resulted in legal action. The cases represent substantiated occurrences of child sexual abuse reported to the Defense Department’s Family Advocacy Program, which does not track judicial proceedings, the department said. An AP investigation published in November found more inmates are in military prisons for child sex crimes than for any other offense. But the military’s opaque justice system keeps the public from knowing the full extent of their crimes or how much time they spend behind bars. Responding to AP’s findings, three Democratic senators urged Defense Secretary Ash

Carter to lift what they called the military justice system’s “cloak of secrecy” and make records from sex-crimes trials readily accessible. The senators also raised another concern. Child sexassault cases are not included in the Defense Department’s annual report to Congress on sexual assaults, which focuses primarily on adult-on-adult incidents, they said. The senators — Barbara Boxer of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Mazie Hirono of Hawaii — told Carter in a Dec. 8 letter they are concerned the department may be underestimating how many sexual assaults are occurring in the military. Of the 1,584 substantiated cases, enlisted service members sexually abused children in 840 of them. Family members of the victims accounted for the second largest category with 332 cases. Most of the enlisted offenders were males whose ranks ranged between E-4 and E-6. In the Marine Corps and Army, for example, those troops are corporals, sergeants and staff sergeants. Officers were

involved in 49 of the cases. The victims were overwhelmingly female. Kathy Robertson, manager of the Family Advocacy Program, said in an emailed response to questions that the incident rates reflect the U.S. military’s demographics. Most of the cases involve the E-4 and E-6 ranks because they are the largest number of active-duty personnel and the largest number of parents in the military, she said. Duplications in the data indicate that as many as 160 additional cases of sexual abuse could have occurred during the 2010-2014 period, involving a child who was victimized multiple times or a repeat abuser. The figures also account just for cases involving military dependents, which are the only child victims the department tracks. The data on sex crimes committed by civilians is not comparable to the figures maintained by the Pentagon due to differences in demographics and the way incidents are reported.


Saudi allies Bahrain, Sudan cut Iran ties BEIRUT — Bahrain and Sudan joined Saudi Arabia in severing diplomatic relations with Iran on Monday in the worst crisis in three decades between the rival Sunni and Shiite powers. The United Arab Emirates, meanwhile, recalled its ambassador from Tehran in a downgrading of ties to focus mainly on commercial affairs. Dubai is the base for many Iranian-run businesses. As the diplomatic storm widened, so did the efforts at international damage control. Russia offered to mediate, the United Nations dispatched a senior envoy for crisis talks in Riyadh and Tehran, and a growing list of nations expressed concern at the implications of the rupture — touched off by Saudi Arabia’s execution of a prominent Shiite cleric as part of its largest mass execution of prisoners in more than 35 years. In Washington, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Secretary of State John Kerry has been in contact with his counterparts in the region but that President Barack Obama has not made calls to fellow leaders.

India: Gunman at large A fifth gunman was killed Monday on the third day of a siege at a heavily fortified air base near the border with Pakistan and at least one attacker remained as troops worked to secure the compound, a military official said. Seven soldiers have been killed. The search operations at Pathankot air force base will continue until all areas have been completely secured, Maj. Gen. Dushyant Singh said. The attack has dragged on since Saturday morning. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

ACROSS THE U.S. Iowa: Candidates in motion The sprint to the Iowa caucuses opened Monday with nearly a dozen presidential candidates campaigning, a restrained Bill Clinton stepping up for his wife and a pledge by billionaire Donald Trump to start spending serious money. From Iowa to New Hampshire, the candidates roared out of the holidays in full force with less than a month to go before voting begins. Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump have been the consistent favorites in polls overall.

Calif.: El Nino storms El Nino storms lined up over the Pacific started soaking droughtparched California with rain expected to last for most of the next two weeks, forecasters said Monday. As much as 15 inches of rain could fall in the next 16 days in Northern California, with about 2 feet of snow expected in the highest points of the Sierra Nevada, the National Weather Service said. To the south, persistent wet conditions could put some Los Angeles County communities at risk of flash-flooding, and mud and debris flows, especially in wildfire burn areas.

Workers at massacre site Under heavy security, workers Monday returned to their offices at the San Bernardino campus where 14 people died last month in a massacre. Since the attack, few of the 600 employees of the Inland Regional Center that serves autistic children and mentally disabled adults have gone to the office. A county restaurant inspector targeting his co-workers was joined by his wife in killing 14 and injuring dozens in the attack. They were motivated by radical Islamist beliefs, according to the FBI.

Texas: Immigrant roundup Immigration agents over the weekend conducted the first raids targeting the deportation of families who flocked across the United States’ southern border over the past two years, a senior government official said Monday. Jeh Johnson, the head of the Department of Homeland Security, said in a statement that the 121 people rounded up during raids in Georgia, Texas and North Carolina were primarily members of Central American families that crossed into the U.S. via Mexico since May 2014. Most were placed in family detention centers in Texas to await deportation. Those targeted in the raids had been issued final orders of removal by immigration courts and had exhausted other legal remedies, including claims for asylum. From Herald news services

Feds sue VW over emissions cheat By Michael Biesecker and Eric Tucker Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department sued Volkswagen on Monday over emissions-cheating software found in nearly 600,000 vehicles sold in the United States, potentially exposing the company to billions in fines for clean air violations. The civil complaint against the German automaker, filed on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency in U.S. District Court in Detroit, alleges the

company illegally installed software designed to make its “clean diesel” engines pass federal emissions standards while undergoing laboratory testing. The vehicles then switched off those measures to boost performance in real-world driving conditions, spewing greenhouse gases at up to 40 times what is allowed under federal environmental standards. “Car manufacturers that fail to properly certify their cars and that defeat emission control systems breach the public trust, endanger public health and disadvantage competitors,” said

John C. Cruden, the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. “The United States will pursue all appropriate remedies against Volkswagen to redress the violations of our nation’s clean air laws alleged in the complaint,” he said. The company is in the midst of negotiating a massive mandatory recall with U.S. regulators and potentially faces more than $18 billion in fines for violations of the federal Clean Air Act. The company and its executives could also still face separate

criminal charges, while a raft of private class-action lawsuits filed by angry VW owners are pending. Volkswagen Group of America spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan said Monday that the company “will continue to cooperate with all government agencies investigating these matters.” In past statements, high-ranking VW executives have sought to blame only a small number of software developers in Germany for the suspect computer code designed to trick emissions tests.

General Motors invests $500M in ride-hailing company Lyft By Dee-Ann Durbin Associated Press

DETROIT — The automotive industry is placing its biggest bet yet that using a device to hail a ride — with or without a driver — is the future of transportation. General Motors Co. said Monday it is investing $500 million in ride-hailing company Lyft Inc. and forming an unprecedented partnership that could eventually lead to on-demand, self-driving cars. It’s the largest investment yet by a traditional automaker in a new mobility company, and is an acknowledgement by GM that the transportation landscape is changing fast. “We see the world of mobility changing more in the next five years than it has in the last 50,” GM President Dan Ammann said in an interview. GM made the investment as part of a $1 billion round of fundraising by Lyft. Together, the companies plan to open a network of U.S. hubs

where Lyft drivers can rent GM vehicles at discounted rates. That could expand Lyft’s business by giving people who don’t own cars a way to drive and earn money through Lyft. It also gives GM a leg up on competitors like Daimler AG and Ford Motor Co., who are developing their own ridesharing services. And it would put more young drivers behind the wheel of a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac. Longer term, GM and Lyft will work together to develop a fleet of autonomous vehicles that city dwellers could summon using Lyft’s mobile app. Partnering with GM could give Lyft a boost over its archrival, Uber Technologies Inc., which is working on its own driverless cars. Karl Brauer, an industry analyst with Kelley Blue Book, expects to see automakers and tech companies form more partnerships over the next few months. “Each one has an area of specialization to make both of them stronger,” he said.

GM isn’t the only automaker with an eye on Lyft. Fontinalis Partners — a venture capital co-founded by Ford Motor Co.’s Executive Chairman Bill Ford — invested in Lyft last May. The amount invested wasn’t disclosed. GM gets a seat on Lyft’s board and access to the 3-year-old company’s software, which matches riders with drivers and automates payments. The partnership also better positions the automaker for a future in which customers don’t buy cars every five or six years but share rides or hail drivers when they need to get somewhere. San Francisco-based Lyft gets the expertise of a 108-year-old automaker with decades of experience in making connected and autonomous vehicles. Detroitbased GM also has an enviable global reach; it sells almost 10 million cars each year in more than 100 countries. Lyft operates See LYFT, Page A8

Factory slumps heighten global economy fears WASHINGTON — Fears escalated Monday that the global economy could struggle more than expected this year — a prospect that contributed to a plunge in financial markets. The anxiety was heightened by reports that manufacturers extended their slumps last month in the United States and China, the world’s two largest economies. Factory activity contracted for a second straight month in the U.S.and for a 10th straight month in China. Chinese stocks fell 7 percent before trading was halted. The Dow Jones industrial average ended down 1.6 percent, its biggest loss in two weeks. Markets in Asia and Europe were down more.

First-of-a-kind drug approvals rise in 2015

Associated Press With all major markets in a severe sell-off Monday, shares of companies that make guns surged as new data pointed to strong sales at the close of 2015, a year marked by mass shootings in Paris and California, and new political pressure to tighten regulations. President Barack Obama is to finalize new executive actions Monday aimed at curbing gun violence and unregulated sales. Obama has taken nearly two dozen executive actions to tighten gun laws but has been unable to push measures like expanded background checks through Congress. Recently released numbers from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System show that background checks jumped about 38 percent last month compared with December 2014. “It’s the biggest growth of the year,” said Wedbush Securities analyst James Hardiman. “Probably safe to say gun sales were up a lot in the month of December.” High profile shootings push gun sales because some people feel less safe or fear tightened gun ownership rules, Hardiman said. Shares of Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. rose almost 6 percent Monday, one of the biggest percentage gains over the past year for the gunmaker. Its shares hit an all-time high two weeks ago. Shares of Sturm, Ruger & Co. rose almost 3 percent. Stock in the Southport, Connecticut, gunmaker hit a 52-week high last month.


s you begin to plan for 2016, leave in the past some financial advice you may have learned. I had questions from readers about some things they should unlearn, so I want to further explain three pieces of financial advice. Unlearn that there’s good debt and bad debt. When it comes to a mortgage or

education loans, you’ve probably heard that this debt can be a “good investment.” Bad debt is characterized as carrying credit card balances or taking out payday loans. But debt is debt. The problem with so-called good debt is that people take on too much by rationalizing that in the end they’ll be better off financially. That’s not always the case. We see

an increasing percentage of borrowers with burdensome student loans. And too many people are still reaping the negative consequences of mortgages they couldn’t afford. Unlearn that it’s OK to hold on to your mortgage even into retirement. People are told that they either should keep or See SINGLETARY, A8

Homes become smarter, thanks to latest gadgetry LAS VEGAS — The consumer-electronics show in Las Vegas, known as CES, opens Wednesday. A couple of things attendees can expect to see: A new floor-cleaning robot from LG will respond to its owner telling it: “You missed a spot.” The South Korean company’s

HOM-BOT Turbo+ makes use of cameras that record where it’s already cleaned. If it didn’t do a good job, augmented reality will come to the rescue. Using any smartphone screen, the owner can point to a still-dusty area and the robot will go there to tidy up. Pricing and availability have not yet

been announced. In the kitchen, Whirlpool is offering a new smart oven. With a smartphone, you can start, stop and adjust the temperature from another room. You get alerts when pre-heating or cooking is done so you won’t have to keep checking. And if you leave home, the

app will alert you if the oven is still on — if you also have a Nest thermostat, which can detect when you’re away. It isn’t known, though, whether there are any mechanisms to prevent you from accidentally turning the oven on while away. Associated Press

Approvals of first-of-a-kind drugs climbed last year, pushing the annual tally of new U.S. drugs to its highest level in 19 years. The rising figures reflect an industry-wide focus on drugs for rare and hard-to-treat diseases, which often come with streamlined reviews, extra patent protections and higher price tags. The Food and Drug Administration approved 45 drugs with never-before-sold ingredients in 2015, edging past the previous year’s tally of 41, which had been the highest number since 1996.

Ferrari lists in Milan Sports car maker Ferrari is following up its successful Wall Street listing with a stock market launch in Milan. The company famed for its Formula 1 racing machines and coveted red roadsters began trading Monday morning, the first business day of the year, at 43 euros ($47) under the RACE ticker. After a volatile day, the shares closed at 43.24 euros. Ferrari made its public debut on the New York Stock Exchange in October

Famed market holds final New Year auction It’s among the biggest of Japan’s many New Year holiday rituals: Early Tuesday, a huge, glistening tuna will be auctioned for a lot of money at Tokyo’s 80-year-old Tsukiji market. Next year, the tradition won’t be quite the same. The world’s biggest and most famous fish and seafood market is due to move in November to a massive complex further south in Tokyo Bay.

Windows 10 runs on 200 million devices Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system is running on more than 200 million devices, putting the software on course for the fastest growth trajectory of any previous version.

IN OUR VIEW | Error in early release

Maddening and costly delay It’s the kind of news that shakes confidence in state government; that 3,200 state Department of Corrections prisoners were released earlier than they should have been when software used to determine release dates gave “good time” credits to offenders who weren’t eligible because their crimes involved deadly weapons or other sentencing enhancements. It goes far beyond a shaking of confidence when even a handful of those released early have been found to have reoffended and that innocent lives have been lost. One inmate is alleged to have shot and killed a Spokane teenager when he still should have been locked up. Another who had time remaining is charged with vehicular homicide following a wreck in Bellevue that killed his girlfriend. What’s even more maddening: Though the problem has been ongoing since 2002

when a state Supreme Court ruling required inmates get “good time” credits for time spent in county jails, the state was alerted to the problem in 2012 when the family of a victim made their own calculation and showed the inmate was about to be released prematurely. About 70 former inmates released too early have been identified and the cases are being reviewed; more than 20 are back in prison and completing their sentences. Most were released a few days to about 100 days sooner than should have been allowed. An earlier Supreme Court decision means most won’t have to go back; those who have found work and lawfully resumed their lives shouldn’t be made to complete their terms. Thanks to a public records request, the Associated Press obtained emails that showed that an assistant attorney general for the state, Ronda

D. Larson, informed the state Department of Corrections in December 2012 that it wouldn’t be necessary to perform hand recalculations of release dates because a software fix was expected to soon fix the problem. “A few more months,” read one email from Larson, “is not going to make that much difference ... .” Larson went further in her email to say that the matter wasn’t urgent because the problem had been “identified internally,” rather than by a court order, for example. The issue wasn’t “identified internally,” of course, but a court order shouldn’t be necessary for a public agency to take the necessary steps to protect the public’s interest and safety. Without the necessary urgency, a software fix was delayed 16 times since 2012, and hundreds more were released before their sentences should have been

considered satisfied. The software problem now is expected to be fixed later this month. Until then, release dates are being calculated manually, something that should have started three years ago. Rob McKenna, who was completing his term as attorney general when Larson sent the emails to the Department of Corrections, said that neither he nor his senior staff knew about the issue or about Larson’s advice to wait. Current Attorney General Bob Ferguson has called Larson’s advice “deeply flawed” and has asked two retired federal prosecutors to investigate and determine why the issue was allowed to go uncorrected for so long. Expect the report to identify plenty of buck-passing and assumptions once it’s complete. And expect costly civil lawsuits to drive those points home for state officials and employees.

ingredient in the success. Perhaps a deeper look into what the Everett District is doing is warranted.



Easier to pay fine, than get permit The Jan. 2 article, “Despite opposition, Lake Stevens gravel mine given permission to expand,” highlights more problems with Snohomish County Planning and Development Services (PDS), in addition to the “automatic vesting” mentioned in Laura Hartmans’s Dec. 30 letter, “Article exposes vesting fiasco.” In response to code violations, Snohomish County encouraged the mine to permit expanded operations to include the unpermitted area — the same approach PDS takes with code violations in my area, Snohomish River floodplain. One property owner was allowed to acquire a piece of land from a neighbor to absorb unpermitted fill — and then to fill and build a new residence and garage right by the river. Another owner is approved to build a structure and add fill, a new project described as resolution for a previous fill violation. This approach makes Snohomish County a poster child for poor planning and development, and breeds cynicism. Why pay all the fees to get a permit, when you can build, fill and just pay a small fine when a neighbor has the courage to turn you in? And if you get caught filling floodplain, PDS will just negotiate a new project to make it up. This approach to violations appears to be rampant throughout the county. With smart growth and development, Snohomish County could be a wonderful place to live and work with a variety of places to live, well-managed farms, amazingly diverse recreation, and a workforce that would like to work closer to home. A major overhaul of PDS’s policies and practices is the first step toward a better Snohomish County. Monica Van der Vieren Snohomish


Money not key to more success Kudos to the Everett School District. The Sunday editorial on the improvement of the district’s graduation rate shows what can be accomplished with the right combination of factors. (“Putting more in caps and gowns.”) I thought the article was great … until I read the last paragraph. I wonder if the Herald Editorial Board missed the essence

Have your say Feel strongly about something? Share it with the community by writing a letter to the editor. You’ll need to include your name, address and daytime phone number Send it to: Email: Mail: Letters section The Daily Herald P.O. Box 930 Everett, WA 98206 . of the success made by the Everett District. The last paragraph implies that the success is a consequence of an increase in spending and that other districts require additional funds to accomplish similar results. Nothing has been provided to support that conclusion. A recent article in the Washington Post provided an insightful view of the relationship between spending and results. The Post article cited Iowa as the No. 1 state for graduations with a four-year graduation rate of 90.5 percent. The last place went to the District of Columbia with a rate of 61.4 percent. Washington overall had a graduation rate of 78.2 percent and ranked 38th. Looking at the spending per pupil from the same source (Public Education Finances: 2012 at the editors would see that Iowa spends $10,038 per student while the District of Columbia spends $17,468. Washington spent $9,637. The state spending the most per pupil was New York at $19,552 and the state spending the least was Utah where $6,206 was their per pupil expenditure. New York was 39th out of 51 in graduation while Utah was 27th. Increased spending has not seemed to be the magic

Anonymity ruins online comments I am greatly pleased your newspaper at least temporarily has decided to close Internet comments. I consider anonymous Internet comments an unfair ability of moneyed interests to unduly influence elections, such as Community Transit’s Proposition 1, outside of campaign finance laws. When I had to wage air superiority to help pass Community Transit’s Prop. 1 against anonymous Internet commentators such as “civicinterests,” “SmallGov!,” “Rinnwald” and the like; I had no idea if they were grassroots like I, or astroturf funded by moneyed special interests, or even Russian government trolls. As Sheryl Attkisson, a conservative journalist, wrote on her blog, “Astroturfers and propagandists tend to attack and controversialize the news organizations, personalities and people surrounding an issue rather than sticking to the facts. They try to censor and silence topics and speakers rather than engage them.” Perfect descriptor for those transit expansion opponents hiding behind screen names to me, but I’m biased. Ultimately, unless the Everett Herald is OK with moneyed interests running dirty stealth campaigns on its website; I hope you can keep the Internet comments off. Alternatively, like the Mukilteo Beacon, you can charge $10 annually to online subscribe and comment with zero anonymity. Joe Kunzler Sedro-Woolley

Fireworks’ bans need enforcing

I’ve lived in the Silver Lake area about 30 years. I live in unincorporated Snohomish County, one house outside the Everett city limits. With our seemingly unabated access to illegal fireworks from Boom City or wherever, the problem increases each year. Now it’s come to include that after each Seahawks victory, the illegal blasts are no longer twice a year, but as often as the Hawks win. I also am aware that law enforcement turns a deaf ear to such things. Is it because they don’t have the resources to do their jobs, or are they simply afraid of these blatant lawbreakers? I’m sure that much more time and paper was used to create these ordinances, than ever will be used writing citations for violating them. They, (those who think it’s manly to explode these things), are selfish and very ignorant. The fireworks cause injuries to people, do property damage, traumatize lots of animals, and also people with PSTD. C’mon, Everett Police and Snohomish County Sheriff, how about some policing and enforcement! Gene Dell Everett

CORRECTION The editorial in Sunday’s Herald regarding graduation rates for the Everett School District, gave an incorrect figure for the percentage of Class of 2015 students graduating in four years. The correct figure is 90.2 percent.

Holding fire when it’s white guys with guns


hat do you think the response would be if a bunch of black people, filled with rage and armed to the teeth, took over a federal government installation and defied officials to kick them out? I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be wait-and-see. Probably more like point-andshoot. EUGENE ROBINSON Or what if the occupiers were Mexican-American? They wouldn’t be described with the semi-legitimizing term “militia,” harking to the days of the patriots. And if the gun-toting citizens happened to be Muslim, heaven forbid, there would be wall-to-wall cable news coverage of the “terrorist assault.” I can hear Donald Trump braying for blood. Not to worry, however, because the extremists who seized the remote Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Oregon on Saturday are white. As such, they are permitted to engage in a “standoff” with authorities who keep their distance lest there be needless loss of life. Such courtesy was not extended to Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was playing with a toy gun in a park on Nov. 22, 2014. Within seconds of arriving on the scene, police officer Timothy Loehmann shot the boy, who died the next day. Prosecutors announced last month that Loehmann would face no charges. A “perfect storm of human error” was blamed, and apparently storms cannot be held accountable. Such courtesy, in fact, is routinely denied to unarmed black men and boys who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. You know the litany of names — Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray. And you know how these stories end. Just weeks ago, a Baltimore jury failed to reach a verdict in the trial of the first of six officers charged with Gray’s death. Another perfect storm, I guess. I probably sound cynical, but in truth I’m just weary. And worried. Justice is supposed to be blind. Race, ethnicity and religion are not supposed to matter. Yet we’re constantly reminded that these factors can make the difference between justifiable and unjustifiable homicide — and between life and death. The yahoos in Oregon are protesting the Bureau of Land Management’s policies, hardly a red-button issue for most Americans. The federal building they seized is in a wildlife refuge, which means that by definition it’s in the middle of nowhere. The protesters’ guns pose more of a threat to wildlife than people. So no, I don’t think authorities have any immediate reason to blast their way into the woods. But I would argue there was no good reason to do so on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, either. Is the salient difference that the Oregon protesters are believed to be heavily armed? If so, what message does that send? Does somebody need to found a Minority Rifle Association so that communities of color are given similar deference? The organization’s name would have to be changed in a few decades, anyway, when whites in the United States cease to constitute a racial majority. This inexorable demographic shift, I believe, helps explain why the world of politics seems to have gone insane of late. What I want is that African-Americans, Latino Americans, Muslim Americans and other “outsiders” be seen as the Americans we are. What I want is acknowledgement that we, too, have a stake in our democracy and its future course. What I want is the recognition that no one can “take back” the country because it belongs to me as much as to you. These are not the sentiments we’re hearing in the presidential campaign, though — at least, not on the Republican side. Following Trump’s lead, candidates are competing to sound angrier and more embittered. You’d think there might be at least a few prominent voices on the right expressing horror and outrage at the wrongful killing of a 12-year-old boy. You’d think that Republicans running for president might find the time to condemn the armed takeover of federal property by zealots. Yet all we hear is crickets chirping. The GOP candidates have apparently concluded that voicing hope, embracing change and broadening our concept of the American mainstream constitute a losing strategy. They see Trump’s success and mimic him in fostering a sense of “beleaguered” us versus “menacing” them. This may be an effective way to pursue the nomination, but it’s a terrible disservice to the country. Eugene Robinson’s email address is

Ranchers who inspired occupation report to prison By Rebecca Boone and Brian Melley Associated Press

BURNS, Ore. — Fatherand-son ranchers convicted of setting fire to federal grazing land reported to prison Monday as the armed anti-government activists who have taken up their cause maintained the occupation of a remote Oregon wildlife preserve. Federal authorities made no immediate attempt to retake the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the remote high desert of eastern Oregon, which about two dozen activists seized over the weekend as part of a decades-long fight over public lands in the West. There appeared to be no urgent reason for federal officials to move in. No one has been hurt. No one is being held hostage. And the refuge is a bleak and forbidding stretch of wilderness about 300 miles from Portland, and it’s the middle of winter. Some have complained that the government’s response to the situation

trout as well as four types of salmon: chinook, coho, pink and chum. The land is also home to black bear, elk, deer and beaver. Williams said the land is likely to remain in its present state, as it already provides ideal habitat for fish in the water as well as for land mammals. “Right now we don’t have any money to do anything with the property,” Williams said. “Perhaps

in Oregon would have been more severe had the occupants been Muslim or other minorities. But others said from a tactical standpoint, the government’s cautious response would make sense no matter who was holed up in the government building in the reserve. Meanwhile, the armed group said it wants an inquiry into whether the government is forcing ranchers off their land after the father and son were ordered back to prison for arson on federal grazing lands. The group calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom demanded a government response within five days related to the ranchers’ extended sentences. Ammon Bundy — one of the sons of rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a 2014 Nevada standoff with the government over grazing rights — told reporters that Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven Hammond, were treated unfairly. The Hammonds were

convicted of arson three years ago for fires on federal land in 2001 and 2006, one of which was set to cover up deer poaching, according to prosecutors. They said they lit the fires to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. The men served their original sentences — three months for Dwight and one year for Steven. But an appeals court judge ruled the terms fell short of minimum sentences that require them to serve about four more years. Their sentences have been a rallying cry for the group, whose mostly male members said they want federal lands turned over to local authorities so people can use them free of U.S. oversight. The father and son reported to a federal prison Monday in California, said Harney County, Oregon, Sheriff David Ward. He provided no other details. The Hammonds have distanced themselves from the protest group and many locals, including people who want to see

federal lands made more accessible, don’t want the activists here, fearing they may bring trouble. Schools in the small town of Burns, about 30 miles from the refuge, were closed for the week out of concern for student safety. For the moment, the federal government was doing nothing to remove them, but the FBI said it was monitoring the situation. The White House said President Barack Obama was aware of the situation and hopes it can be resolved peacefully. The refuge was established in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt to protect bird populations that had been decimated by plume hunters selling feathers for the hat industry. It sits in a wide snowcovered valley rimmed by distant mountains and contains lakes and marshland. The preserve has grown over the years to about 300 square miles and surrounds the ranch Dwight Hammond bought with his father in 1964. Dwight Hammond said his family has resisted pressure

to sell the ranch as the federal government chipped away at his grazing allotments and increased fees on other lands. The refuge contains about 10 small buildings, some of which had been entered by the occupying group. Other members of the group blocked the entrance to the headquarters. The takeover prompted an outcry far beyond Oregon from both those who want to see federal lands opened to more ranching and logging and others who were astounded that private citizens with guns could seize government property without any intervention by law enforcement. The tactics of the Bundys and the group were condemned by Democrats and Republicans alike. Sen. Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat who is familiar with the Bundys from their standoff in his state, said the group could not continue breaking the law, but that everyone should remain patient. “These people say we want to return (the land) to

the people,” Reid said. “The people have it right now.” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said he hoped the group would “stand down peaceably” with no violent confrontation “sooner rather than later.” Ammon Bundy said his group had sent a demand for “redress for grievances” to local, state and federal officials. The group, which included a couple of women and some boys and girls Monday, did not release a copy of its demands. Bundy would not say what the group would do if it got no response. “We have exhausted all prudent measures and have been ignored,” he said. At the time of the Bundys’ 2014 Nevada standoff, there were $1.1 million in outstanding grazing fees, and no payments have been made since then. The fees continue to accrue, although Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Bev Winston couldn’t give a specific updated figure on the debt.

we’ll thin some of the trees to allow some of the others to grow faster.” The deal came together when Forterra learned the owner of the parcels, a property investment firm called Robinett Holdings, soon would put them up for sale, Connor said. “When we first learned the property was coming on the market, we contacted the Tulalip Tribes to see if (the land) would be conservationally significant,” Connor said. That turned out to be the case, she said. “The property itself has historical oxbows and

natural features that in and of themselves are very, very important,” she said. It also fit in with the Tulalips’ efforts to restore the watersheds associated with the Snohomish, Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers. “We’ve been spending a lot of time and effort trying to restore areas on the watershed,” Williams said. “With new development and redevelopment, we’re losing habitat faster than we’re replacing it,” he said. “We need to do a better job with what we have.” The deal marks the second large habitat protection project the Tulalips

have undertaken. Last year the tribes breached the levees and restored tidal influence to the Qwuloolt Estuary in Marysville. The 315-acre tract took 20 years to convert from farmland to a salt marsh and cost nearly $20 million. The transfer of the Wallace River tract is also consistent with Forterra’s goals in working with local Native American tribes on preservation, Connor said. Last year Forterra carried out a similar property transfer with the Makah Tribe involving 240 acres near Lake Ozette on the Olympic Peninsula that is considered

critical salmon habitat. “We see that repatriation of indigenous lands is an important part of our conservation mission,” Connor said. Snohomish County was the primary provider of funds for the land purchase and transfer, providing $280,000 in Conservation Futures funds toward the purchase, and toward other costs associated with obtaining the conservation easements and transferring the property to the tribes. County Parks Director Tom Teigen said the Conservation Futures Advisory Board often tries to strike a

balance between acquiring land for active recreation, agriculture and habitat preservation, but this particular exchange stood out for its potential benefits to salmon. “At the end of the day, preserving that property and getting that much acreage as well as the riverfront is significant,” Teigen said. Forterra also received $250,000 from the state Recreation and Conservation Office toward the property purchase. Chris Winters: 425374-4165; cwinters@ Twitter: @ Chris_At_Herald.

Nick Tollett, of Bothell, gets a scalp massage from stylist Dawn Roughley at the 18/8 Fine Men’s Salon in Bothell in December.

‘The male-centric salon’ A Bothell spa for men features beer on tap ... and much more



BY ANDREA BROWN More: whatsup. Ideas?, 425-339-3443


he sign in front of this Bothell salon has a dude with pink foam curlers in his hair. What’s up with that? It’s not what you think. Inside you won’t find a bunch of “Curler Joes” like the guy on the sign. The foam is in the beer, not the curlers. “We’re a male-centric salon,” said Ron Barbera, owner of 18/8 Fine Men’s Salon at the Village at Beardslee Crossing. Guys can get a brewski and the beauty works from scalp to toenails. In addition to styling what’s on top, there’s lots of tweezing, pedicuring, exfoliating, lathering, waxing and stoning going on. Stoning as in hot massage stones. Waxing as in ear, nose and eyebrows. “No full back. Yet,” Barbera said. He opened this franchise of the 18/8 chain last summer. There are about 40 18/8 salons nationwide, including one in Redmond. The name? “It’s the chromium-nickel percentage that is added to mild steel to turn it into a form of stainless steel,” Barbera said. Salons like 18/8 fill a gap for men. They can get pampered and polished at a salon specifically designed for them. “It’s about relaxing and getting away from it all. Men are just now starting to figure it out,” Barbera said. He admits it’s not for all men. “If you want a 15-minute haircut, we’re not the place. It’s not the standard get-outthe-clippers. When a guy comes in, we give him a robe.” He also gets a free beer, if the grooming package meets the time test of the state’s guideline of services that include more than a simple haircut. Not that’s there’s such thing as a simple haircut here, anyway. A cut with scalp massage and a hot lather shave (a package deal for $73) qualifies for a beer. Tap beer, at that. By the Keurig maker is a keg with Knuckle Boom ESB from Beardslee Public House next door. Washington law allows qualified day spas to give a 6-ounce pour of wine or a 12-ounce beer to customers who are at least 21. “We don’t do wine because nobody has asked for it,” Barbera said. It’s not a line of chairs where everybody sees you during the not-so-pretty process. The salon’s 11 cubicle stations with sinks give privacy for “when you have sticks stuck up your nose doing nose waxing,” Barbera said.

Lefotu, 21, wears a man bun as well as many hats. He has part-time jobs at two companies doing corporate videos and audio, visual and lighting for live events. He also does freelance video production and editing. He plays drums in a band with three friends. He has a cat named Barney. What are you wearing? A light green henley, black jeans, and maroon socks with black diamonds. What is a man bun? When did you start wearing one and why? A man bun is a questionably sexy hairstyle in which a man with hair of the medium to long variety secures said hair into a firmly rounded bun. I wear a man bun because I think it looks good on me and it keeps my ears from being too warm. My hair is extremely coarse and curly so it warms my face when I wear it down, which I don’t enjoy most of the time. Do people want to touch your hair or ask you questions about it? I have never had anyone want to touch my man bun before. They normally ask me how long I’ve been growing it out and what the length of my hair is. If you could have dinner with anybody alive or in history who would it be? At this particular moment, I’d have to say Stanley Kubrick. I really admire his work as a filmmaker and artist and would love to have a conversation with him and ask him some questions about his processes for making films and art. What do you want people to know about you? I don’t really think of myself as a person who wants to say something or wants strangers to know me. I suppose I’d let people know that I want to live a meaningful and joyful life and that there’s hope in Jesus Christ no matter what you’re going through. What’s the funniest or craziest or best thing anybody ever said to you? There are too many. Pet peeve: Repeating myself. Guilty pleasure: Cookies. Book you are reading: “Kubrick: The Definitive Edition.” This book is awesome. Stanley Kubrick is currently my favorite film director, and this book goes in depth through Kubrick’s entire career as a filmmaker. It has several interviews with the director as well as his collaborators, and it explains some of the processes by which he wrote, produced, directed, and edited his films. It’s also filled with tons of brilliant photos taken behind the scenes of his films. He seems to be a very intelligent and interesting man, and I think his work really reflects this. The book talks about some philosophical interpretations of his work, but to me that stuff is really dependent upon the person watching the film, so I don’t totally agree with some of the book’s commentary on those things. — Andrea Brown, Herald Writer

Health is more important than weight


Adapted from a recent online discussion. Hi, Carolyn: My husband said a few months ago, “I’m worried you’re gaining weight.” I am about 5 pounds higher than I should be according to BMI charts. I’d love to lose 20 pounds and look like I did 13 years ago. But I have been working out, eating right, getting tested for thyroid problems, etc., and nothing is changing. Setting aside whether there are other things I could be doing (like working with a personal trainer), what if this is just me? Just who I am right now? My cholesterol, blood sugar, everything — it’s all fantastic. No health problems. Just chubby. I’m so sad. I recently found myself Googling “how to be anorexic.” I say that in the full knowledge that it’s an awful disease that people die from. But this is how horrible I feel. — I Just Cannot Lose Weight That does sound horrible. And cruel. Aging changes bodies, it just does, and the only real say we have over that process is through our choices: physical activity, food quality and quantity, and self-care, which includes everything from sleep to basic hygiene to medical attention. And not only do people tend to thicken as they age, but they also

CAROLYN HAX TELL ME ABOUT IT respond differently to efforts to lose weight. Some bodies respond quickly, some take longer, some hang onto weight like Rose on a scrap of Titanic no matter how hard you work them. People who witness their partners attending to these variables, and find only fault with the results, prove themselves unworthy of their partners’ efforts. Have you talked to your husband openly about the way his criticism hurts you? Has he not seen for himself that your habits are good? Obviously it would be a lot better for both of you if you both recognized that the care you’re taking will pay off for you in the only way that matters: on the inside. I don’t just mean in your healthy lab results, but also in your emotional equilibrium, your sense of self-worth, your strength and flexibility and, if

you keep this up throughout your lifetime, your chances of remaining mobile into old age. Too often people assign blame here (5! pounds!), and are quick to see weight gains as a personal failing. Assuming a conversation alone won’t open his eyes, you or he or both might benefit from a bit of professional intervention — doctor, trainer, nutritionist, marriage counselor, depending on the nature and size of the empathy gaps. If he can’t see your worth, though, then that’s his blindness; don’t let it also be yours. Re: Can’t lose weight: On top of Carolyn’s great advice, I would also add: Consider going to therapy. If an eating disorder even remotely seems “worth it,” that is a truly serious sign. — Anonymous 1 Re: Weight: If you’re perimenopausal, this might be the new you, which I implore you to embrace. I applaud that you are eating healthily and exercising, and I hope you are getting more fit, because that just always feels wonderful. But as you yourself point out, weight does not equal poor health. You are wonderfully healthy. Enjoy that! And I beg you to find a way to rock your new curves instead of fighting them. — Anonymous 2


The Daily Herald

Grandma-to-be can’t muster enthusiasm she wants to feel Dear Abby: My daughter-in-law, “Eden,” is married to my daughter. Eden is now pregnant via artificial insemination. I will never meet the donor and know almost nothing about him. Could this be why I don’t have the enthusiasm for this pregnancy that I should have, since the baby will be my first grandchild? I feel guilty that I’m not excited. I’m wondering if it’s because there is no blood connection, but neither would there be if the baby were adopted. Eden is due in a month. We live close by, and I need to generate some enthusiasm. Any suggestions? — Grandma In Waiting Dear Grandma: Yes. Start by doing all the things you would if you WERE excited about this grandchild. Be as participatory as your daughter and daughterin-law will allow. If you do, while I can’t guarantee that you will feel a bond with the baby, your chances of forming one will be greater. And please stop feeling guilty. Relationships take time to build, and this is no exception. Dear Abby: My husband and I are facing a big decision: whether to move to a better school district for our daughter. The one we’re in doesn’t rate high, and yes, we can afford to move to a more elite area. So what is holding us back? Our wonderful neighbors! They are our best friends. Our husbands are close, and it’s the same with our kids — even the dogs. We vacation together and take turns carpooling to school in the mornings. They have welcomed my daughter into their home, and ditto for us and their children. Are we fools to walk away from such contentment and love? — Heavy Decision In Pennsylvania RIP HAYWIRE


DEAR ABBY Dear Heavy Decision: If you and your friends are close for reasons other than geography and convenience, your relationship with them should be a lasting one. However, your daughter’s education should come first, and if they are true friends, they will understand why you are making the move. Dear Abby: As someone on a second marriage, may I point something out to your readers? An engagement is not marriage. People need to take a hard look at the person they are choosing to spend the rest of their lives with, and understand that they cannot change another person. Red flags should be addressed DURING THE ENGAGEMENT. That little annoyance will grow and has the potential to blossom into a huge issue. Counseling can be wonderfully useful, but bear in mind it can take several tries to find a counselor who clicks with you. Take it from me, divorce is horrible and can cause damage that can never really be undone. — Experienced In Tennessee Dear Experienced: You’re right; problems don’t solve themselves, and people in love don’t always think rationally. However, I hope they will pay attention to your excellent advice because I couldn’t have said it better myself. Universal Uclick

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Tuesday, Jan. 5, the fifth day of 2016. There are 361 days left in the year. Today’s highlight: On Jan. 5, 1066, Edward the Confessor, King of England since 1042, died after a reign of nearly 24 years. On this date: In 1781, a British naval expedition led by Benedict Arnold burned Richmond, Virginia. In 1895, French Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, convicted of treason, was publicly stripped of his rank. (He was ultimately vindicated.) In 1905, the National Association of Audubon Societies for the Protection of Wild Birds and Animals was incorporated in New York State. In 1914, auto industrialist Henry Ford announced he was going to pay workers $5 for an 8-hour day, as opposed to $2.34 for a 9-hour day. (Employees still worked six days a week; the 5-day work week was instituted in 1926.) In 1925, Democrat


Nellie Tayloe Ross of Wyoming took office as America’s first female governor, succeeding her late husband, William, following a special election. In 1933, the 30th president of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, died in Northampton, Massachusetts, at age 60. Construction began on the Golden Gate Bridge. (Work was completed four years later.) In 1949, in his State of the Union address, President Harry S. Truman labeled his administration the Fair Deal. In 1953, the Samuel Beckett play “Waiting for Godot� premiered in Paris. In 1964, during a visit to the Holy Land, Pope Paul VI met with Patriarch Athenagoras I of Constantinople in Jerusalem. In 1970, “All My Children� premiered on ABC-TV. In 1994, Thomas P. “Tip� O’Neill, former speaker of the House of Representatives, died in Boston at age 81. Associated Press

‘Making a Murderer’ TV show compels more than 200,000 to call for pardon of Steven Avery Steven Avery is an unlikely icon for innocence. In contrast to “Serial� podcast’s Adnan Syed, he isn’t particularly charismatic or well spoken, nor does he have a relatable story — in Syed’s case, a high school romance — attached to the murder for which he has been convicted. But here is what Avery, 53, does have: “Making a Murderer,� a 10-episode Netflix documentary series that raises questions about the circumstances surrounding his arrest and conviction. And with it, a collection of scenes, documents and theories that present an image of innocence that Avery never really enjoyed as a free man. In 2007, Avery was convicted by a jury in Calumet County, Wis., of the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. He is serving a life sentence in Wisconsin’s Waupun Correctional Institution, and fans of the documentary say they want him out. As of Monday afternoon, the series had compelled more than 210,000 people to sign and White House petitions calling for Avery’s pardon, an impossibility under the Constitution, which allows presidential pardons only for federal criminal convictions. “This is a black mark on the justice system as a whole, and should be recognized as such, while also


Steven Avery’s 1985 mugshot, as featured in “Making a Murderer.�

giving these men the ability to live as normal a life as possible,� says the White House petition, which also advocates for the release of Brendan Dassey, a nephew of Avery’s who was convicted in a separate trial of being a party to the murder and sexual assault. Avery had been imprisoned for a sexual assault conviction until he was exonerated in 2003. After watching “Making a Murderer� writes Michael Seyedian, who started the petition, “I am outraged with the injustices which have been allowed to compound and left unchecked in the case of Steven Avery. . . . Avery’s unconstitutional mistreatment at the hands of corrupt local law enforcement is completely unacceptable and is an abomination of due process.� The 53-year-old Wisconsin native grew up

in Manitowoc County, where his family ran an auto salvage business and built a reputation for being troublemakers. They were uneducated, outliers in the small community. The young Avery said that he was “stupid and hanging around with the wrong people� growing up, which resulted in his involvement with a couple of burglaries and one act of animal cruelty. But is he a rapist? A killer? The first charge was tacked onto his name in 1985, then removed 18 years later. Avery spent years in prison for the violent sexual assault of a beloved community figure, only to have DNA evidence reveal that the crime was not committed by him. Avery maintained his innocence the whole time, and he filed a $36 million civil suit against the county for wrongful conviction upon his release. For the first time in Avery’s life, he was believed to be the good guy, fielding television interviews and public appearances that painted him as a sterling example of resilience in the face of unjust punishment. The reprieve was shortlived. Two years after Avery thought he had escaped life behind bars for good, he was charged with killing Halbach. After the photographer went missing, her vehicle was found in the Avery family’s junkyard, and

prosecutors said DNA tests revealed Avery’s blood in the car. Once again, he denied any wrongdoing. The jury did not buy it. “The only thing I can think, they are trying to railroad me again and see if they can get away with it this time,� Avery told the Associated Press in 2005. This was the scenario that his family had been afraid of: By remaining in the county they had launched a lawsuit against, they had put themselves at risk of retaliation. “Making a Murderer� suggests Avery’s innocence by pointing to all the parts of his life that made him appear all too guilty in the eyes of the jury. He had a criminal record, that one overturned conviction aside. His brothers had a history of sexual assault and burglary charges. Avery’s then-16-year-old nephew Dassey, who has a learning disability, told police that his uncle made him rape Halbach and help dispose of her body. Manitowoc County Sheriff Robert Hermann has been fielding hundreds of angry calls about Avery since the documentary was released on Netflix on Dec. 18. Although he had not seen the series, Hermann told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last Wednesday that he believes it is one-sided. Yanan Wang, The Washington Post

HOROSCOPE Happy Birthday: Revisit old ideas and rework what you already have in place to fit current commercial trends. There is money to be made, contracts to be signed and a chance to achieve the recognition you desire and deserve. Anger or past regrets will be a waste of time and will slow you down. Your numbers are 3, 7, 15, 28, 33, 38, 43. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take control. Refuse to let anyone treat you poorly. Lay down ground rules and offer incentives, and you will find areas of compromise and agreement. Ask for a favor if it will help you reach a personal goal. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make a contribution, but don’t let anyone take advantage of your generosity. Equality will make your offer more effective. Don’t be afraid to ask others to do their fair share. Your enthusiasm will land you in a position of leadership. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Bring about changes to one or more of your relationships. Don’t hold back if something isn’t going well for you. Speak up and make suggestions that will help you handle your situations more efficiently. Romantic gestures will be misleading. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let your imagination take over. You’ll come up with some great ideas that will help you convince others to join in. Networking or business trips will bring positive results. A partnership looks promising. Improve your living arrangements. ★★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Making changes will not go over well with those you live with or are close to. Try not to disturb anyone with your choices and you will avoid opposition from others. Focus more on self-improvements that will enhance your knowledge and appearance. 1-866-662-1718

NCAA Football Championship Subdivision

Herald Writer

As he is often reminded, Bo Brummel is a long way from his Arlington home. And if the differences in food and climate are not enough, all he has to do is open his mouth. “As soon as I start talking, I stick out like sore thumb,” said Brummel, a tight end on the Jacksonville State University football team. Beau Brummel And that is Jacksonville, Alabama, not Jackonsville, Florida, though “that’s what I thought when they first called (to recruit) me,” said Brummel, a 2012 graduate of Arlington High School.

Championship game No. 1 Jacksonville State (13-1) vs. No. 3 North Dakota State (12-2) Time: 9 a.m. TV: ESPN2

Brummel is in his second season at Jacksonville State, and on Saturday the Gamecocks play North Dakota State in the title game of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division 1-AA). The nationally televised game (ESPN2) will be played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, just outside Dallas, and will be the culmination and perhaps the happy ending to Brummel’s college football journey. “It’s definitely bittersweet, coming into the last game of my college career,” he said. “But

we’re in the national championship game and that’s what I came here for.” The Gamecocks lost in the quarterfinals a year ago, “so we had a lot of fire coming into this season,” he went on. “We had a lot to prove, and (getting to the national title game) is a big deal for our program.” North Dakota State, which has won four consecutive national titles, “is a very good team,” he said, “but we’re very confident. We believe that if we play our game, we should be successful.” The 22-year-old Brummel was a good player at Arlington, though certainly less than a blue-chip recruit by his senior season. He ended up playing two seasons at Butte College in Oroville, Calif., where he continued to grow and develop. As a sophomore See BRUMMEL, Page C4

Lynch returns, could play against Vikings By Nick Patterson Herald Writer

RENTON — The Seattle Seahawks are heading into the playoffs riding high. And now it looks like they’re getting their Beast Mode back, along with several of his friends. The Seahawks are about to get a huge boost heading into the postseason with star running back Marshawn Lynch rejoining the team Monday. Lynch hasn’t played since Nov. 15 because of an abdominal injury, and he hasn’t been with the team since undergoing surgery on Nov. 27, opting instead

to rehabilitate on his own in San Francisco. But the news just continues to get better and better for the Seahawks. Not only did Seattle finish off the regular season in style by crushing the high-flying Arizona Cardinals 36-6 Sunday, Lynch was back at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Monday for the first time in more than a month, and Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he was hopeful Lynch would be able to play in Sunday’s NFC wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings.





Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch missed the final seven games of the regular season after undergoing abdominal surgery.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame cornerback KeiVarae Russell is entering the NFL draft. Russell, a senior who could have petitioned the NCAA for another year of eligibility, finished fourth on the team with 60 tackles despite missing the final two games with a broken right leg. He had two interceptions, two forced fumbles, a sack and broke up four passes. Russell, a graduate of Mariner High School, said on Twitter that he was grateful for his time at Notre Dame and thanked coach Brian Kelly. Russell, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound cornerback, missed the 2014 season, one of five football players suspended by the university for academic dishonesty. He returned this season and had two interceptions and 60 tackles before fracturing his right tibia Nov. 21 against Boston College. Kelly said Russell would have had to petition the NCAA if he wanted to return. Russell said in a phone interview with Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel on Monday that he planned to declare regardless of the NCAA’s decision, as he felt ready to take the next step in his career. “I’m back on track as far as progressing as a player,” Russell told Thamel. “I’m ready to fulfill my dream and help out my family and do other things I wanted to do in my life.” Russell told Thamel he will skip the workouts at the NFL Combine in February. “I will be healed in the next few days, but I want to be able to perform at my best with the same amount of training (others will have),” Russell told Thamel. “I want to get back to where I was and I feel like when I come back, I’m going to come back stronger.” Russell told Thamel he knows he’ll face questions from NFL teams about his missed year at Notre Dame. “There’s not going to be a character issue,” Russell told Thamel. “That’s the last of my worries. That’s easy.” After he was suspended in 2014, Russell could have transferred to another school, but he instead went home to Everett and took classes at a community college in order to return to Notre Dame. Russell, who is a semester from graduating with a degree in management consulting, intends to finish his degee. “I wouldn’t have gone to Notre Dame if I wasn’t going to get a degree,” Russell told Thamel. “I’d have gone somewhere else.”

Silvertips’ goalie Hart continues to stand out By Jesse Geleynse Herald Writer

Carter Hart continues to stand out among WHL goaltenders. The Everett Silvertips 17-year-old star netminder was named the WHL’s nominee for CHL Goaltender of the Week, the league announced Monday. Hart posted a record of 2-0-0-0 with a 0.98 goals against average and a .951 save percentage as the Tips finished off the week with three consecutive victories. It’s the third such honor for Hart this season. The Sherwood Park, Alberta, native was twice nominated in November and won the CHL award for the week of Nov. 23-29. Hart was also named the WHL Goaltender of the Month for November. Hart leads the league in wins (21), shutouts (6) and goals against average (1.97), and is tied for the lead in save percentage (.925).

WHL awards Regina Pats forward Adam Brooks was named the WHL Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. Brooks scored two goals to go along with eight assists and a plus-7 rating in four games last week as the Pats went 2-1-0-1. Meanwhile, Kamloops Blazers goaltender Con-

The World Junior Championship gold medal games takes place today in Helsinki, Finland, where the host Finns will take on Team Russia in the final. The Russians defeated the Americans 2-1 in Monday’s semifinal round. It is the third consecutive year the Russians have ended the Americans’ gold medal hopes in the knockout round. Team Canada, which featured seven WHL players, was eliminated by Finland in the quarterfinal round. As the tournament concludes, WHL teams eagerly await the return of their players from their respective national teams. The Silvertips certainly benefited last week as they took two victories from a depleted Kelowna Rockets squad that had three forwards in Finland playing for three different countries. The Tips and Rockets square off again Friday in Kelowna as the Rockets will likely feature a significantly different lineup than last week.

Trade deadline The WHL trade deadline comes at the end of this week and several moves have already been made. The Red Deer Rebels, who are gearing up to play host to this year’s Memorial Cup, have generated the most buzz so far. The Rebels added two more big pieces since last week as they acquired 20-yearold Adam Helewka from the Spokane Chiefs, and Luke Philp from the Kootenay Ice. Helewka was a fourth-round pick of the San Jose Sharks in last year’s draft and began the season in the AHL before he was sent back to Spokane. He has 16 goals and 13 assists in 19 games for Spokane this season. The 20-year-old Philp has 13 goals and 16 assists in 22 games for Kootenay this season although he hasn’t played since November after suffering back-to-back injuries.

With 1,395 career points, Andrews currently ranks 18th on UW’s all-time scoring list. If he maintains his per-game scoring average of 21.1 for the rest of the season, he would finish the regular season as the No. 7 career scorer in UW history.  Justin Dentmon  (1,425),  Bill Hanson (1,425),  Detlef Schrempf  (1,449) and  Brandon Roy  (1,477) are the four names immediately ahead of him on that list.

Glacier Peak High School Junior Varsity girls basketball coach Jon Rasmussen smiles as he critiques Haley Grambo during practice on Monday, Jan. 4, 2015 in Snohomish, Wa. The JV team has won 101 straight games and has helped fuel the varsity program’s success. The varsity team is 9-2 this season and lost just seven games in the previous two seasons.

‘We’re having a lot of fun’ The Glacier Peak junior varsity girls basketball team has won 101 consecutive games. The impressive streak has helped foster success throughout the Grizzlies’ program. By David Krueger

Grizzlies’ varsity team has played on the JV squad at one time or another, making them all a part of the impressive streak. “Everyone’s played JV,” Rasmussen said. “Everyone’s been a part of this streak. The whole team — the whole program — is in on it. Sadie (Mensing) and Kianna (Garner) graduated last year and they were part of the first (20-0 season). It’s been there awhile so everyone has a little piece to the puzzle. Everyone’s part of this streak and that’s the cool thing.” The players gave Rasmussen a shirt after the 100th win came against the JV team from Shorecrest on Dec. 18. According to Rasmussen, those players’ high basketball IQ has been key to the streak. “These girls can run so many offenses it’s not even funny,” Rasmussen said. “It’s not normal for a JV team to be able to run multiple defenses, multiple offenses against a man or a zone. I treat them like a varsity team.” The JV players go up against the Glacier Peak varsity squad regularly, sometimes even coming away with a win. “It’s always really intense and competitive because we’re always doing our best to try to be at the same level as the varsity is,” said junior Kelsey Thomas, a post for the Glacier Peak JV team. “We’re trying to compete with them. Even

if we might not win everyday, it’s still a good practice for us because we have a pretty good varsity team. It’s really helpful because we know what kind of level they play on so we know what kind of level we need to play at to move on to the next level.” “Because the JV is so competitive, they practice against the varsity so there’s some great battles in practice,” Hill said. “The varsity kids are competitive too. They don’t like to lose to them, which has happened on occasion. Being able to push each other really helps us be successful.” Rasmussen came to Glacier Peak in 2008 after serving as the head coach of the Shorecrest girls team for four seasons. Prior to that, he was the head coach for the Lynnwood girls. When Rasmussen’s oldest daughter, former Glacier Peak sharpshooter Taylor Rasmussen was a freshman at Glacier Peak, he resigned to go to the Grizzlies, where he served as a varsity assitant for four years before the JV coach position opened up. Rasmussen’s youngest daughter, current Glacier Peak sharpshooter Natalie Rasmussen, is now a senior and the coach is enjoying one last season with his daugther — who was on his JV team her freshman season and is now one of four seniors on Hill’s varsity squad. Jon Rasmussen teases Hill that

his kids come to the varsity team having never experienced a losing locker room. “It’s a neat thing to be recognized for but it’s a strong program and we just keep feeding Brian with more talent,” Rasmussen said. “I kind of tease him. I say, ‘Kids have never lost and then I give them to you and they find out what a loss is.’” The current JV players say there isn’t any additional pressure, but they are aware of the streak and want to keep it going. “We try not to get too cocky about it or talk about it too much,” said junior JV guard Mackenzie Willms. “We use it as motivation. We don’t want to break the streak.” “When we came onto the team our first year, to be on JV, it was really crazy because we didn’t want to lose,” Thomas added. “Now, we’re used to it but it’s still a really big motivator for the whole team. We’re more concentrated on us as a team and how we play, than our wins. I mean, we want to win every game, but we’re more concentrated on how we play.” Last season, Rasmussen asked Willms, Thomas and his team what they thought the streak stood at. The guesses were a little off. “I had six or seven freshmen on the JV team and I asked them what they thought the record was,” Rasmussen said. “Twenty-seven games was their highest guess. I said, ‘Well it’s 72.’ And that was when they started last year. They were at 92 at the end of the year and now it’s over 100. I think the pressure has eased up a little — the 100 was coming down — but they take pride in it.” Rasmussen isn’t sure how long the streak will continue, but he’s going to keep preparing his team to go out and win. And, most importantly, have fun. “We have kids out here that are on the JV that would play for a lot of varsity teams,” Rasmussen said. “That’s a great problem to have. ... We’ll see how long we can keep it up. Just getting to 100 was a huge accomplishment. We’ll see if we can keep it going.”

SNOHOMISH — “Have fun = win.” It’s the last thing Glacier Peak junior varsity coach Jon Rasmussen writes on his whiteboard before a game. “It starts there. The main thing is to have fun,” Rasmussen said. “If you’re not having fun, that’s not good. “We’re having a lot of fun.” Glacier Peak has won 101 consecutive junior varsity games, a streak that has spanned four and a half seasons. The Grizzlies’ JV squad hasn’t lost a game since the 2010-11 season, and that success has helped prepare players for the varsity team, which is 9-2 this season and has lost just seven games the prior two seasons. Glacier Peak head coach Brian Hill credits the JV team’s success with helping prepare those players for when they get promoted to varsity. “It keeps building our program up. I think a lot of our success is because our other programs are so successful,” Hill said. “Even our C-team was on a big win streak also. I think they were up to 80 before they lost to Snohomish last year. Then they filter up to JV and JV filters up to varsity.” Rasmussen, who is in his fourth year as the JV coach, took over a team that was used to winning. Since Glacier Peak began athletics in 2008, the girls basketball junior varsity team has gone 1437. According to Rasmussen, the last loss was at the buzzer and the loss before was the first game of the 2009-10 season. Both coaches, and their players, are a bit surprised that the streak has continued for so long. “Odds are you’re going to lose a game here or there,” Rasmussen said. “... The ball should bounce wrong somewhere down the line and it hasn’t. You’ve got to have some luck in there too. It’s pretty crazy though when you start thinking of 100-and-some wins.” Every current player on the

Vikings lose tight end Ellison By Dave Campbell Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings tight end Rhett Ellison is done for the season with a torn patellar tendon in his right knee that will require surgery and a six-month recovery. Coach Mike Zimmer revealed the timetable for Ellison, a key run blocker and a reliable receiver on the limited occasions the ball has been thrown his way. He has lined up as a fullback at times, too, making him one of the most versatile players in the offense. He’ll be missed when Minnesota hosts Seattle on Sunday in a wild-card game. “It’s huge. He’s a heck of a player. He’s a great leader. He does the dirty work that nobody else can do,” wide receiver Adam Thielen said Monday. “He’s a tough guy to replace, but we’ll do our best.” Kyle Rudolph is the primary tight end, but the Vikings have frequently used formations with two or three tight ends. Ellison’s absence for the playoffs, then, will elevate the role of rookie MyCole Pruitt, a fifth-round draft pick from Southern Illinois. “MyCole can do quite a bit that Rhett does. There’s something that Rhett obviously does better than MyCole, but there’s some things that MyCole does better as well,” Zimmer said. “So we’ll just have to look at that mix and see how we can kind of adapt.” Ellison has 458 yards and three touchdowns receiving over four years since being drafted in the

Coughlin steps down as Giants head coach By Tom Rock Newsday

The Tom Coughlin Era is over. The 69-year-old two-time Super Bowl winner who has served as New York Giants head coach longer than anyone but Hall of Famer Steve Owen’s 23 seasons, will not return to his post for the 2016 season. “I met with John Mara and Steve Tisch this afternoon, and I informed them that it is in the best interest of the organization that I step down as head coach,” Coughlin said in a statement Monday. “I strongly believe the time is right for me and my family, and as I said, the Giants organization.” Coughlin insisted in the statement that “this is not a sad occasion for me,” though the three straight losing seasons did seem to take their toll. In 20 NFL seasons, Coughlin is 182-156 including the postseason. His 12-year record with the Giants is 102-90. The Giants won two NFC East titles and a pair of Super Bowls during his tenure. Coughlin ranks 11th in alltime victories with 183, and he also is tied with Mike Shanahan

for 11th place with 170 regularseason wins. Only Owen (153) won more games with the Giants than Coughlin. Coughlin’s departure also ends the third-longest head coach-starting quarterback partnership in NFL history. He and Eli Manning have taken the Giants into 183 games. Don Shula and Dan Marino are second on that list at 184. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady hold the record at 223. Coughlin’s NFL head coaching career began when he was named the first coach of the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars for the 1995 season. In the 1996 season, he brought them to the NFC Championship Game. He was hired by the Giants in 2004, replacing Jim Fassel. In 2007, with the team on the verge of collapse under his heavyhanded discipline, Coughlin made a conscious decision to change his ways. He became a bit more flexible, more tolerant of his players, and it paid off. The Giants won Super Bowl XLII that season, topping the 18-0 Patriots in the final game in one of the biggest upsets in championship game history.

“He’s ready to go,” Carroll said about Lynch during his Monday afternoon press conference. “He’s in the program, going, working. He’s going to keep doing his workouts here with us today and tomorrow. Wednesday we’re going to practice and see how he feels and how far he can take it. He’s worked out in incredibly competitive situations. He physically should be ready to go and now we have to translate that to football. I’m not worried with him having any problem with the system or any of that kind of stuff. It’s been a while, but he’ll be fine. We’ll just see if he can handle it and I expect he will. We’ll see how it goes.” Though Lynch has yet to participate in a practice since returning to the team, Carroll said Lynch is confident he’s physically ready to return to the field. “He feels good now, that’s why he’s back,” Carroll said. “He wouldn’t be here if he didn’t feel like he could go. He’s ready to rock. We’ll just have to find out what it looks like. I really think it’s going to be just fine, I’m not really worried about it at all.” Lynch’s return is sure to provide a spark to a team that’s already on fire, having won six of seven and rallied to finish first in the NFL in scoring defense for the fourth straight year. “He’s an extraordinary member of this team, he always has been,” Carroll said.

done on his spine that showed no damage. “It’s a little tight, but I’ll be OK,” he said after the Vikings beat the Packers 20-13 to win the NFC North division. Thielen left the game at Green Bay after aggravating an injury to his left shoulder, leaving his status in question this week. The backup and special teams

standout had two key carries for 67 yards, including a 41-yard gain on a fake punt in the first quarter that set up a field goal. The defense, beat up a bit down the stretch, is healthier now. Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph has missed four of the last five games with a toe injury, the biggest reason for concern on that side of the ball.

Head coach Pagano gets 4-year contract extension from Colts Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Chuck Pagano and Ryan Grigson will be paired together for four more years in Indianapolis. Colts owner Jim Irsay announced at a hastily-called, late-night news conference that he had given his coach and general manager contract extensions. Pagano, the 55-year-old coach, received a four-year deal to replace the expiring contract that prompted speculation he could be ousted Monday. Grigson got three-years added to the one year he had on the original deal he signed in 2012. Pagano led the Colts to the playoffs in his first three seasons in charge, advancing one step further each year, losing in the 2014 AFC championship game. But plagued by injuries, including to star quarterback Andrew Luck, Indianapolis went 8-8 this season as Houston won the AFC South.

Brady has sore ankle BOSTON — The bye week will come in handy for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady,

“He’s been a lead dog for a long time in this program about carrying the football, being tough and physical, stepping up when you have to. He’s never been anything but that. So the fact we get a guy like that coming back to us is a great boost. He’ll add to everybody’s confidence and he’s fun to have around and all that. It should work out great. “That said, I hope he can play this week, I hope it works out.” Seattle has cycled through several running backs in Lynch’s absence. Undrafted rookie Thomas Rawls announced himself as the heir apparent after Lynch was sidelined, but Rawls suffered a season-ending ankle injury of his own three weeks ago in the Seahawks’ 35-6 victory at Baltimore. Since then Seattle has relied primarily on the duo of Christine Michael and Bryce Brown, both of whom were picked up off the scrap heap. Michael in particular has proven effective, rushing for 102 yards on 17 carries against the Cardinals. But Lynch, who has gained 6,347 yards in his six seasons with Seattle, would give the Seahawks a proven playoff commodity, and it appears likely he will be available Sunday. Carroll was asked whether it was realistic for Lynch to carry the ball 20 times next week, and Carroll replied in the positive. “I think so,” Carroll said. “This is similar to the first game of the year, which is really what it would be like. We don’t have any different expectations than that, so we’re going at it with the same thought. The fact we’ve seen C-Mike do such a nice job, he’s ready to go.

who could use the rest after Miami defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh landed on his right ankle in Sunday’s game. Brady threw only 21 passes for a season-low 134 yards in the 20-10 loss to the Dolphins — the Patriots’ fourth loss in their past six games. The reigning Super Bowl MVP was sacked two times and hit a half-dozen more, including a late shot from Olivier Vernon and the hit from Suh that left Brady limping. “I’ve had worse. I’ve had plenty of worse injuries than this one,” said Brady, who has had only one injury in his career that forced him to miss time — a season-ending knee injury in Week 1 of 2008. “Suh’s a big guy. He just came down on the back of me and ... 300 pounds, he just collapses the back of your leg, there’s going to be some residual damage from that.”

Baalke to reman 49ers’ GM SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York says Trent Baalke will remain general manager of the team with the knowledge that York isn’t satisfied with the recent results. York spoke publicly to the media for the first time this season Monday, one day after firing first-year coach Jim Tomsula after a 19-16 overtime victory against the St. Louis Rams to finish the season. San Francisco went 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the second straight season.

He ran the ball hard the other day and was very effective. Bryce too, so we’re in good shape in that position now if he’s (Lynch) able to make it through the week.” Lynch isn’t the only impact player the Seahawks could get back this week. Strong safety Kam Chancellor (tailbone), tackle Russell Okung (calf), guard J.R. Sweezy (concussion) and tight end Luke Willson (concussion) all sat out against the Cardinals because of injuries. However, Carroll expressed optimism Monday that all four could be back in time for Sunday’s game against Minnesota. Even cornerback Jeremy Lane, who left Sunday’s game because of an oblique injury, is thought to have a chance of being back by Sunday. Everything seems to be falling into place for the Seahawks on the eve of the playoffs. Last Sunday’s victory over Arizona saw Seattle dominate a team that was playing for the NFC’s top seed — showing last week’s 23-17 home loss to the St. Louis Rams was an aberration. With Lynch and others now on the verge of returning from injury, Seattle is hoping to ride the wave of momentum to a third straight Super Bowl. “This win was about momentum,” Carroll said. “You guys asked that: Did you need it? Well, you want it if you can get it. So we feel good about where we’re going right now.” Check out Nick Patterson’s Seattle Sidelines blog at seattlesidelines, and follow him on Twitter at @NickHPatterson.

Brummel From Page C1

in 2013 he was a first-team AllAmerican, as chosen by the California Community College Athletic Association, and he helped Butte to a co-national championship. By that time recruiters were calling, though the offers were not coming from the traditional college football powerhouses. He heard from schools such as Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Indiana State and Stephen F. Austin, but it was a visit to Jacksonville near the northeast corner of Alabama that led to his commitment. With a population of around 12,000, Jacksonville “is smaller than Arlington,” Brummel said. Indeed, it is more of a community than a city. It is also a place where kindness and hospitality still matter a great deal. And like much of the South, residents are rightly proud of the region’s good food and, on Saturdays in the fall, good football. During his recruiting visit, “I fell in love with the people here,” Brummel said. “Everyone is very polite and it’s a very homey place, to say the least. I fell in love with the coaches, too. It’s just a good environment and I’ve loved it here. It’s been a perfect fit.” Jacksonville State head coach John Grass chuckles when he recalls watching Brummel adjust to the ways of the South. The heat and humidity certainly took some getting used to, particularly during the scorching days of summer training camp. Brummel would be running wind sprints and sweating so heavily “that you could see water coming out of his shoes,” Grass said. As for the food, Grass added, “I told him when he got here, ‘If it moves in the South, we fry it.’ (Later) he bought himself a fry dish to fry his own food. ... So I think he’s really enjoyed it here and we’ve enjoyed having him. He’s a great person, he works extremely hard, and he represents us on the field and off the field in the way we want our program represented.” All but about a handful of players on the Jacksonville State roster are from Alabama or from southern states such as Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi and Tennessee. Brummel is one of just three players from west of the Mississippi River, and the only player from the North. “They call me the Yankee,” he said with a laugh. Being so far from home “is a little rough,” he admitted. “I only get to go home about twice a year. But (otherwise) it’s been really good. ... And my parents (Bud and Jerri Ann Brummel) have only missed a few games, home and away, since I came to Jacksonville State. As long as they can find a plane ticket and a hotel, they’re going to be at the game.” The Gamecocks are 13-1 this season, with their only loss coming at Auburn, 27-20, in Week 2 in a non-conference game. “We went toe to toe with them the entire game, but ended up losing with about a minute to go in the fourth quarter,” Brummel said. “We can go toe to toe with anybody in country as far as (starting) talent,” he added. “The only difference is those (Division I) teams have more depth.” Brummel, who missed six games this season with a knee injury, wants to continue his football career in the NFL. He expects to spend the coming months training for a Jacksonville State pro day sometime in March. With NFL scouts showing up to evaluate prospects, a pro day “is really the key for getting a shot in the NFL,” said the 6-foot-3, 245pound Brummel. “Ever since I was a little kid I’ve wanted to be a professional athlete, regardless of the sport,” said Brummel, who has one catch for 31 yards this season and caught seven passes for 124 yards and four touchdowns in 2014. “Football just ended up being my calling. ... (To play as a pro) has always been my dream and now it’s right there. It getting closer and closer, and now all I need is a shot.” “I think he’s got a chance,” Grass said. “He’s the prototypical tight end. He’s got the size, he’s got the blocking ability and he’s got the receiving ability. I think it depends on his pro day and being able (to use that) to get into camp and then see if he can make the team. “There are so many guys trying to make it, but I think Bo has the skill set to make it if he’s given the opportunity. And I hope and pray that he gets that opportunity.”

Mari J's cares about customers, tries to create family feel

n 2012, Washington state voters passed Initiative 502 legalizing small amounts of marijuana for adult consumption and established licensing and regulation for a new industry. It also opened the door for eager entrepreneurs looking to invest in new business opportunities. One of those entrepreneurs is Jessica Jordan. After a decade in real estate, Jordan was ready for a change. When she found out her father, an attorney, owned a building in a compliance area, she decided to apply to the Washington State Liquor Control Board’s lottery for a marijuana retail licenses. “I put in an application just to see what would happen,” Jordan said. “I was drawn third.” That application was the beginning of a long process that would culminate into Mari J's Highway Pot Shop in Everett. It was a doubly exciting moment for Jordan who is also a medical marijuana patient. She knew what a difference medical marijuana had made for her and was gratified to know the product would soon be made even more available to others through retail outlets. In fact, recent changes to regulations are going

to allow her to offer even more help to medical marijuana patients in the near future. “Here, in this next year, we’re going to be able to sell medical products in our store and help patients as well as recreational users,” she said. But, back at the lottery in 2014, Jordan had a lot of ground to cover before her shop could open its doors. For a start, she decided not to use her father’s building. She had found a much better location on one of Everett’s main retail thoroughfares at 9506 19th Ave. SE, in Everett between the Buzz Inn Steakhouse and the Econo Lodge. It offered easier access for customers and plenty of parking, but it needed a lot of work. Because the location had a gas station on the site, they had to go through environmental cleanup before the shop could be made ready. But, the bones of the structure were good. It was built from concrete blocks offering security as well as structure. More security has been added in the form of a security guard who monitors both the store and the parking lot, ensuring the safety of customers and employees. The previous business at that location had a sign

in place that advertised along Interstate 5, which was grandfathered in for Jordan’s own use. Everyone traveling on I-5 can see that Mari J's Highway Pot Shop is at the next off-ramp for their convenience. Something Jordan had no trouble setting up was her network. She became a member of the Marijuana Business Association and its associated Women’s Alliance. “It’s a wonderful organization that helps women in the industry,” Jordan said. “It’s very supportive to women entrepreneurs.” Being a woman has not been an issue for her so far, Jordan said. She knows numerous women in the industry who are growers or store owners and, as far as she can see, it is an industry that is very open to women in business. What has been challenging is compliance and making sure every detail is always in strict accordance with state regulations that always seem to be changing due to new interpretations in the law. “There’s quite a bit of gray area because it is a new industry,” Jordan said.
