Meth in ‘tortured’ baby’s system By Rikki King and Eric Stevick Herald Writers

EVERETT — A baby girl who died last month with multiple untreated fractures from alleged

abuse also tested positive for methamphetamine, Everett police said Tuesday. The 3-month-old, identified in court papers only as “M.M.S.,” was tested at the hospital before she died, police Lt. Ryan

Dalberg said. How the child wound up with the drug in her system — and who caused her injuries — are questions in an ongoing investigation, he said. The girl’s name was not

confirmed by officials Tuesday. Her cause of death will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office. The girl’s mother and the mother’s boyfriend were arrested Friday for investigation of felony

VERETT — Community leaders face another challenging year caring for men and women falling through cracks in the social safety net and onto the streets across Snohomish County. Elected officials, law enforcement and providers of social services are collectively looking for ways to better address the needs of people living with mental illness and addiction who often end up in the criminal justice system or homeless. There’s steady pressure from neighborhoods and business owners to do something because of crime and public safety hazards. Pilot programs are under way to intercept people before they reach the criminal justice system and the county and cities should get an idea this year if any of these new approaches are working.

EVERETT — Dave Somers sounded a collaborative tone as he started work as Snohomish County executive, but he also made some big breaks with the past. Somers replaced almost all of the at-will employees who had served until last week under John Lovick, the former executive. Five staffers who have worked with Somers at the County Council assumed posts in the new administration. “I am more than willing to admit that I do not have all the answers,” Somers told a room filled mostly with county employees at a public ceremony Monday. “We have some very complicated issues we need to address. But one thing I do know: Together we can find the best path forward.” Somers, a fisheries biologist who served 14 years on the County Council, beat Lovick, a fellow Democrat, in the November election. As executive, Somers is the chief administrator for Washington’s third most-populous county. Paine Field, the Public Works Department and the Medical Examiner’s Office, among other functions, fall under his authority. As he settled into the executive’s sixth-floor offices in downtown Everett, Somers said it was a place he never visited once during Aaron Reardon’s nearly 10 years as executive, and just a few times after Lovick took over in 2013. “I haven’t been in these offices very much,” he said. “It feels a little foreign to me.”

2 new dog breeds join kennel club’s roster Associated Press NEW YORK — A hairless terrier and an ancient North African hound are ready to run with the pack of dog breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club. The organization announced Tuesday that the American hairless terrier and the sloughi have joined 187 other recognized breeds. The newcomers can now compete in most AKC shows and competitions, though not at the prominent Westminster Kennel Club show until next year. The two new breeds are different in many ways, but

“both breeds make wonderful companions for the right family,” AKC spokeswoman Gina DiNardo said. Many American hairless terriers are, as advertised, bare-skinned, though others have short coats but carry the hairless gene. Their rise began when a hairless puppy emerged in a litter of rat terriers in the 1970s, wowing a Louisiana couple who decided to breed the hairless dogs deliberately, according to the American Hairless Terrier Club of America’s website. The lively, inquisitive terriers can do well at canine sports and as pets for people

with dog-hair allergies. The sloughi (pronounced SLOO-ghee), also called the Arabian greyhound, was developed to hunt game as big as gazelles. The lean, leggy dogs have some similarities to salukis, another hound breed from North Africa. Sloughis are known for speed, endurance, grace and rather reserved demeanors. Criteria for AKC recognition include having several hundred dogs of the breed nationwide. Some animal-rights advocates are critical of dog breeding and emphasize that many mixed-breed dogs need adoption.

Record-tying storms hitting California By Kristin J. Bender and Scott Smith Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Forced by drought to become miserly with water, Californians were warned against reverting to old habits Tuesday as the first of several storms spawned by a record-tying El Nino began drenching the state. A series of storms lining up over the Pacific Ocean was welcome news in parched California, despite their potential for causing flash floods and mudslides. But authorities cautioned that even the wettest of winters can’t replenish depleted reservoirs and aquifers unless everyone keeps pitching in. California’s water deficit is so deep after four years of drought that a “steady parade of storms” like these will be needed for years to come, said Mike Anderson, climatologist for the state’s Department of Water Resources. NEW ARRIVAL! DIPLOMAT BLACK



A fisherman casts his line into the stormy surf north of Morro Rock on Tuesday in Morro Bay, California, as El Nino storms began hitting the state.

“We’re at least on a good trajectory,” he said. “We’ve got to keep it going.” The current El Nino — a natural warming of the central Pacific Ocean that interacts with the atmosphere and changes weather worldwide — has tied 19971998 as the strongest on record, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center said, citing statistics that go back to 1950. El Ninos usually bring heavy rains to California, although it remains to be seen whether people

should expect anything like a repeat of 1997 and 1998, when storms killed 17 people, wiped out crops, washed out highways and pushed houses down hillsides. “DarthNino may finally have California in its sights,” said Jeff Masters, meteorology director of the private Weather Underground. “A parade of strong Pacific storms characteristic of a strong El Nino event will batter the state this week and will likely bring damaging flooding by the time the second storm in

the series rolls through on Wednesday,” Masters said. However, Masters and meteorologist Ryan Maue, of the private WeatherBell Analytics, don’t believe this first storm is as powerful as some other Pacific storm systems, and they caution that the storms now following it may land elsewhere. The current forecast calls for a “kind of a nice level of bombardment” over the next two weeks — probably not enough to cause the tremendous flooding of 1998, but then again, that year’s floods didn’t peak until

February, Masters said. 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, said Johnny Powell, a forecaster with the National Weather Service. In Southern California, between 2 and 3.5 inches of rain is predicted to fall across the coastal and valley areas, and up to 5 inches falling in the mountains. The first in the line of storms also drenched the desert Southwest on Tuesday and was aiming for the Gulf Coast, but should weaken to no more than a couple of inches of rainfall by the time it reaches the Southeast, Masters added. Flash flooding and flows of mud and debris were a concern, especially in places left barren by last year’s wildfires. Residents of the Silverado Canyon burn area in Orange County and the Solimar burn area in Ventura County were urged to consider evacuating. “The best time to prepare is before a weather event happens, but there is still time to prepare at least a basic emergency kit for your home, your car or your place of work,” said Brad Alexander, spokesman for the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.

No death penalty in death of inmate By Diana Hefley Herald Writer

MONROE — Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Roe won’t seek the execution of a mentally ill inmate who is accused of stomping another prisoner to death. Prosecutors in July charged Benjamin Cory Price with aggravated murder. He is accused of attacking Gordon Powell, a

45-year-old Centralia man who was serving time for stealing alcohol. Powell died of a traumatic brain injury about a week after the May 9 prison beating. Price, who has a history of assaulting other inmates, was serving a 12-year sentence for the 2006 strangulation death of his girlfriend. He confessed to the killing two years after hiding the woman’s body. Price claimed she was

putting demons in his head. He was convicted of manslaughter after a lengthy stay at Western State Hospital. Price and Powell were being housed inside the Special Offender Unit at the Monroe Correctional Complex. Powell was walking back to his cell from dinner when Price, 35, allegedly knocked him to the ground with a single punch. He outweighed Powell by about 40

pounds. Video reportedly shows Price repeatedly kicking Powell in the head. The attack lasted about nine seconds. The defendant allegedly told detectives that deceased man used telepathy to advise him that if assaulted Powell, Price would finally be allowed to talk to police and a lawyer. A lawyer for Powell’s family has questioned why Price wasn’t in segregation given his

severe mental health issues and past assaultive behavior toward at least one other inmate. Price attempted to strangle his cellmate in 2011, claiming the man was the devil. Under the law, killing someone inside a prison can be considered an aggravating factor, opening the door for additional sanctions. Aggravated murder is the only See DEATH, Page A8

The historic Weyerhaeuser Building, currently sitting on Port of Everett property near Lombardi‘s Italian Restaurant, is scheduled to be moved this summer to the port‘s new Boxcar Park on the waterfront.

Historic house just can’t stay put S

turdy and well-traveled at 93, an Everett landmark is about to make one more move. The handsome Weyerhaeuser building, which has twice voyaged by barge to new sites, will make an overland trip this spring. By June, if all goes according to Port of Everett plans, the historic 6,000-square-foot building will be trucked to its new waterfront home in the port’s Boxcar Park. The ornate building, designed by architect Carl Gould as a showcase for Northwest wood products, is now at 1710 W. Marine View Drive near the Inn at Port Gardner and the port marina’s south docks.

JULIE MUHLSTEIN Donated to the port by Weyerhaeuser, the building was moved there in 1984. It traveled down the Snohomish River from Weyerhaeuser’s Mill B site, where it had been since 1936. Built in 1923, its original home was Weyerhaeuser’s Mill A, near what is

now the port’s South Terminal. If you don’t know where Boxcar Park is, that’s understandable. The port is working on its Waterfront Place development. Visitors are seeing big changes in the area, including a paved trail and other public access to the waterfront. Boxcar Park, a 2-acre grassy space at the water’s edge, is just north of the Everett Yacht Club building, which is at the foot of 14th Street. The park is in the Central Pier area, in a section the port calls its Esplanade District. Plans call for apartments and retail space. And a boutique hotel is planned for the Everett Yacht Club site.

In the current issue of its Portside publication, the Port of Everett says the Weyerhaeuser building will “serve as the centerpiece of the new Boxcar Park.” “It’s a beautiful location,” said Lisa Lefeber, the port’s director of public affairs. “One of the historic displays, the saw blade, commemorates mill history on the site.” In October, The Herald reported that the Everett Farmers Market will move this year from its longtime home along West Marine View Drive near Lombardi’s Italian Restaurant to the Boxcar Park area.

Kevin Quigley stepping down as head of DSHS By Jerry Cornfield Herald Writer

front porch

OLYMPIA — Kevin Quigley, the embattled and outspoken secretary of the Department of Social and Health Services, announced Tuesday he is resigning after three years on the job. Quigley, a Lake Stevens resident, was appointed by Gov. Jay Inslee in 2013 to run one of the largest agencies in state government. He informed employees in an email that he will stay on the job until the governor hires his successor. “It has been an exciting and

profoundly important three years for me,” Quigley wrote. “It has also been exactly the kind of mission I had hoped for. And like any mission, it has a beginning and an end and I’ve decided that three years is the right measure for me.” Quigley’s decision comes at a critical juncture for the department, which is struggling to comply with a state law and federal mandate requiring Western State Hospital to cut down on long wait times for help restoring the competency of mentally ill inmates in county jails.

Superior Court Judge Anita Farris ordered Quigley be subpoenaed to appear Thursday and explain to her how the department plans to comply. “The buck stops with Mr. Quigley,” Farris said. The judge earlier this month said she would arrest state officials if they didn’t show up to explain why they continue to violate the law. She pointed out that Quigley wrote a letter in November to staff saying that he was pausing efforts to open new competency beds because federal inspectors determined that the hospital didn’t have adequate personnel

for its existing wards. Western is at risk of losing federal funding if it doesn’t improve safety and staffing. Quigley wrote in the letter that his department should have taken more of a stand against judges who ordered the hospital to cut wait times. Pretrial defendants are waiting weeks and months in county and city jails for treatment.

OLYMPIA — Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste had one request of consultants studying the reasons his agency struggles with recruiting and retaining troopers. “I told them, ‘Please go out and find the good, the bad and the ugly.’ I’m open to all of it,” he said this week. They didn’t disappoint, producing a detailed portrait of an agency’s successes and shortcomings in coping with a steady exodus of troopers — now almost nine a month — due to low pay, job dissatisfaction and retirement. Vacancies in the Field Operations Bureau this month number about 85. The $240,000 study prepared by Public Financial Management, Inc. examined the agency’s pay scales, hiring policies and recruitment practices, and recommended changes in all of them to try to stem the tide of departures and fill the vacancies. Most of what they revealed didn’t surprise Batiste, who said replenishing the ranks has been a challenge throughout his 11-year tenure as chief. The main reason, he said, is salaries haven’t been competitive for years. “Dating back to even when Gov. (Chris) Gregoire was in office we had conversations about this as an approaching firestorm,” he said. “Now we’re in the middle of it.” Batiste welcomed the consultant’s recommendations for an across-the-board pay increase, though he knows the Legislature can’t provide the money to do so this year. Starting pay for troopers is about 10 percent lower than what deputy sheriffs are paid by the largest counties, including Snohomish, and police officers in largest cities, including Seattle. Even after 25 years on the job, the base salary is still lower, according to charts prepared by the consulting firm. When you trail your counterparts by that much in other law

New rule addresses transgender bathroom access By Walker Orenstein Associated Press

OLYMPIA — A new rule created by the Washington State Human Rights Commission requires buildings open to the public to allow transgender people to use restrooms and locker rooms of the gender they identify with, officials said Tuesday. The policy took effect

Dec. 26, commission Executive Director Sharon Ortiz said. A prior draft of the rule said schools must “assess the use of locker rooms by transgendered students on a case-by-case basis.” The final policy approved last month removed the separate standard for schools. The commission, created by the Legislature, is responsible for administering

and enforcing the Washington Law Against Discrimination, said Ortiz, who was appointed executive director in 2009. The commission began considering the new policy in2012, Ortiz said. Under the state’s antidiscrimination law, sexual orientation is a protected class, like race, which includes “gender expression or identity,” Ortiz said.

Ortiz and Margaret Chen, a staff attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union, said the policy clarifies law that existed under that antidiscrimination law. Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, disagreed with the commission’s new policy. “Parents have a right to expect that when their children go to school, the boys will use the boys’ locker

room and the girls will use the girls’ locker room,” he said in a written statement. Some opponents of a widely publicized city ballot measure in Houston that sought to create nondiscrimination protections for gay and transgender people highlighted part of that ordinance regarding public bathroom access for transgender people, saying it would let sexual

predators enter women’s restrooms. The measure failed in November. Chen said laws already exist to protect against people who might abuse the policy. “Transgender people are already living and working in Washington State, and we think they should be treated with dignity and respect like everybody else,” she said.


Snohomish man dies in car crash

SNOHOMISH — A 37-year-old Snohomish man was killed Monday night in a two-car accident south of town. Witnesses said the man’s car collided with a van around 8:40 p.m. in the 11000 block of Springhetti Road. The van driver was not hurt. The dead man’s name was not made public Tuesday. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

Seattle: Commercial crabbing season starts The commercial Dungeness crabbing is under way along the Washington and Oregon coasts after being delayed for a month because of a marine toxin. Washington coastal shellfish manager Dan Ayres said Tuesday that the commercial crab fishery opened Monday along much of Washington’s coast. Crabbing north of Destruction Island is tentatively scheduled to open Jan. 15. Commercial crabbing is

also open along the entire Oregon coast. Ayres said he has received reports of a lot of crab coming in and of happy crab fishermen. He said that the crabs are safe to eat after testing showed low levels of domoic acid. Shellfish managers have also scheduled razor clam digs on some beaches. Last year, the Dungeness crab fishery was valued at about $50 million off the Oregon Coast, and $61 million off of Washington.

With one month left in open enrollment, more than 50,000 new people have bought health insurance through the Washington health exchange. Another 124,000 state residents have renewed their insurance coverage through the exchange. State health officials say they are seeing a boost in enrollment among their target group of people younger than 35. Pam MacEwan, the CEO of the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, said they expect

that the old building will be called the Weyerhaeuser Muse. Battuello said there was interest in other uses of the Weyerhaeuser building. It might have been something as mundane as a dental office. “The port feels strongly that it is an important building,” she said, adding that the community should have access to it. But first, there are the logistics of the massive move, a 10-hour process. “It will be the first time it’s

She said the move could happen by Mother’s Day, May 8, “and more than likely at night.” A portion of West Marine View Drive will be closed in both directions as the building moves a few blocks north. It will cross port property on South Seiner Drive to 14th Street, where it will travel along the marina area to Boxcar Park.

Judge tosses $21.5M verdict in cruise injury case Associated Press

SEATTLE — A federal judge Tuesday threw out a $21.5 million jury verdict awarded to an Illinois man who claimed he was injured during an aroundthe-world cruise in 2011, after the man’s former assistant came forward to say he had intentionally deleted emails that could have hurt his case. U.S. District Judge Barbara Rothstein ordered a new trial, saying she found the assistant’s testimony at a hearing last month credible — and that newly uncovered emails expose “grave inconsistencies” with James R.

But Batiste sharply disagreed with one of the report’s central findings: that dissatisfaction with how the agency is managed is a bigger motivator than higher salaries in troopers’ decision to leave. “There’s always a degree. There’s no doubt about that,” he said. “In terms of being a systemic issue, no I don’t get that feeling.” Consultants identified low morale among the front line force as a critical problem that hampers retaining newer hires. They surveyed 482 troopers and sergeants, and 46

Illinois, sued Seattle-based Holland America Line in 2013. He said he suffered dizziness and seizures after an automatic sliding glass door improperly closed and struck his head as the vessel approached Honolulu. After a two-week trial in October, a jury awarded him $21.5 million. But soon afterward, Hausman’s former personal assistant, Amy Mizeur, came forward to say she had watched him spend several days deleting emails that he should have turned over to Holland America’s lawyers before the trial. He also failed to disclose the existence of one of his email accounts, she said. Mizeur worked for Hausman at The Gold

Center, a precious metals dealer in Springfield. The allegations prompted Rothstein to hold a hearing last month. She found Mizeur credible; her former boss not. “As a witness, he came across evasive and untrustworthy,” the judge wrote. “He appeared to weigh each answer, not for its truthfulness, but to assess whether it would damage his case. Mr. Hausman also seemed to capitalize on his alleged brain injury when it was convenient for him. He was confused or claimed memory loss when confronted with a question or exhibit that appeared to undermine his claims, yet was animated and full or information when his testimony

supported his case.” Further, Rothstein noted, some of the emails that Mizeur was able to recover — even after Hausman instructed her to delete them — “cast doubt on his veracity.” For example, he testified at trial that since his injury he avoids using ladders because he is afraid of falling. But in one of the deleted emails, he wrote to Mizeur to say he was sore after spending most of the day on a 10-foot ladder using a fire ax to chop ice that had built up over the front porch of his house. Nor did the judge believe Hausman’s claims that he did not delete the emails to frustrate Holland America’s defense, but simply as part of his routine practice of

percent said that they didn’t feel valued by the agency. On another question, 64 percent of current troopers, and 79 percent of those who’ve recently left, said they would not encourage people to join the Washington State Patrol. Batiste said he’s not detected such feelings as he traveled the state to meet with troopers in the past year. “The encouragement for open and straightforward dialogue with the troopers is something that I have always advocated and firmly believe in,” he said. As for the recommendations to consider making changes in management, he said, “I don’t agree with that. We have some of the best managers in the business of law enforcement.”

Troopers also expressed concern to consultants that they are under increasing pressure to write more tickets and make more stops as part of their job. “We don’t have quotas. It’s wrong. It’s inaccurate,” Batiste responded. Data compiled from troopers on traffic stops, and from tickets, is used to identify the most prevalent enforcement issues. From there, he said, they can develop strategies. “We use data to help us make informed decisions and then we deploy our resources accordingly to attack those problems,” he said. “It’s not about going out and making ‘X’ number of arrests, although it takes arrests to help control the problem. It’s about informing them to go out and pay

attention to the leading causes of incidents occurring in the roadways.” Consultants also suggested retooling elements of the hiring process. For example, the state patrol rejects 38 percent of its recruits because they fail to pass the agency’s psychological exam. Nationally, the average failure rate for local enforcement is 5 percent, according to the report. Batiste said the agency is looking at “where we stand in relation to the industry norm” and if standards need adjusting to remain current. But there won’t be any lessening of the standards, he said. Lawmakers are expected to hold hearings on the report’s findings and recommendations this month.

Armed group leader pushes for land transfer By Rebecca Boone Associated Press

BURNS, Ore. — A leader of the small, armed group that is occupying a remote national wildlife preserve in Oregon said Tuesday they will go home when a plan is in place to turn over management of federal lands to locals. Ammon Bundy told reporters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge that ranchers, loggers and farmers should have control of federal land — a common refrain in a decades-long fight over public lands in the West. “It is our goal to get the logger back to logging, the rancher back to ranching,” said the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a high-profile 2014 standoff with the government over grazing rights. The younger Bundy’s anti-government group is critical of federal land stewardship, but environmentalists and others say U.S. officials should keep control for the broadest possible benefit to business, recreation and the environment. The armed group seized the refuge’s headquarters Saturday night. Roughly 20 people bundled in camouflage, earmuffs and cowboy hats seem to be centered around a complex of buildings on the 300-square-mile high desert preserve. As the takeover entered its third day, authorities

It is our goal to get the logger back to logging, the rancher back to ranching. — Ammon Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Clive Bundy

had not moved in and had not shut off power to the refuge, Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum said. On Tuesday evening, Finicum said he believes federal officials have issued warrants for the arrest of five group members — including himself and Ammon Bundy — but offered no details. The FBI in Portland referred calls to the Harney County Joint Information Center, which said in a statement it had no information on arrests or arrest warrants and that authorities were “still working on a peaceful resolution.” Finicum, holding a rifle and a backpack, told reporters he would stay at the entrance to the refuge overnight so authorities could find him. Bundy said they would take a defensive position anticipating a possible raid. Earlier, Bundy offered few specifics about the group’s plan to get the land turned over to local control. But Finicum said the group would examine the underlying land ownership transactions to begin to “unwind it.”

The federal government controls about half of all land in the West, which would make the wholesale transfer of ownership extremely difficult and expensive. For example, it owns 53 percent of Oregon, 85 percent of Nevada and 66 percent of Utah, according to the Congressional Research Service. Taking over federal public lands in Idaho could cost the state $111 million a year, according to a University of Idaho study. Randy Eardley, a Bureau of Land Management spokesman, said the group’s call for land ownership transfer didn’t make sense. “It is frustrating when I hear the demand that we return the land to the people, because it is in the people’s hand — the people own it,” Eardley said. “Everybody in the United States owns that land. ... We manage it the best we can for its owners, the people, and whether it’s for recreating, for grazing, for energy and mineral development.” Bundy said the group felt it had the support of the local community.


LaVoy Finicum, a rancher from Arizona who is part of the group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, speaks with reporters Tuesday at the refuge near Burns, Oregon.

But the county sheriff has told the group to go home, and many locals don’t want the group around, fearing they may bring trouble. A community meeting was scheduled for Wednesday. So far, law enforcement has not taken action against the group whose rallying cry is the imprisonment of father-and-son ranchers who set fire to federal land. “These guys are out in the middle of nowhere, and they haven’t threatened anybody that I know of,” said Jim Glennon, a longtime police commander who now owns the

Illinois-based law enforcement training organization Calibre Press. “There’s no hurry.” Some observers have complained, suggesting the government’s response would have been swifter and more severe had the occupants been Muslim or other minorities. The group calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom said it wants an inquiry into whether the government is forcing ranchers off their land after Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven, reported back to prison Monday. The Hammonds, who have distanced themselves

from the group, were convicted of arson three years ago and served no more than a year. A judge later ruled the terms fell short of minimum sentences that require them to serve about four more years. The takeover comes amid a dispute that dates back decades in the West. In the 1970s, Nevada and other states pushed for local control in what was known as the Sagebrush Rebellion. Supporters wanted more land for cattle grazing, mining and timber harvesting. Associated Press writer Gene Johnson contributed to this report from Seattle.

Man behind armed group says he’s on mission from God Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — The man behind the armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge comes from a Mormon family that has been challenging government authority for at least two decades. Ammon Bundy, like his father in previous confrontations, says he is following directions from God and invokes his family’s faith when explaining the anti-government movement he is attempting to lead. Two years ago, Cliven Bundy was at the center of an armed standoff with federal officials over grazing rights on government land. Federal officials backed away from seizing the Nevada rancher’s cattle, but the dispute remains unresolved, and the Bureau of Land Management says the family has not made payments toward a $1.1 million grazing fee and penalty bill. Now Cliven Bundy’s son has put himself in the spotlight, this time in Oregon in a dispute over someone else’s ranching operation. His armed group is pressing federal authorities to turn over government land to local control. Ammon Bundy came to Oregon hoping to rally support behind his cause, but his tactics have been broadly rejected by many locals, by the state’s main ranching group and by The Church of Jesus Christ

of Latter-Day Saints, which the Bundy family has belonged to for generations. In a statement issued Monday, Mormon leaders said the Oregon land dispute “is not a church matter,” but they condemned the seizure and said they were “deeply troubled” by reports that suggest the armed group is acting “based on Scriptural principles.” The ranchers that Ammon Bundy came to defend rejected his assistance and on Monday voluntarily surrendered to serve a federal prison term on a 2012 conviction on charges of committing arson on federal land. Even some militia groups say Ammon Bundy has gone too far. One of them — the Oath Keepers — was present at the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff in Nevada. Their leader issued a statement last

week saying Ammon Bundy had picked the wrong battle. “We cannot force ourselves or our protection on people who do not want it,” Oath Keeper founder Stewart Rhodes said last week on the group’s website. Speaking through their attorney, Dwight Hammond Jr. and son Steven said they preferred to turn themselves in and serve out their sentence. “And that clear statement of their intent should be the end of the discussion on this,” Rhodes said. Ammon Bundy has said he had never heard of the Hammond case until his father mentioned it to him. The Hammonds were convicted of arson three years ago of setting fires on federal land in 2001 and 2006. One of the blazes was set to cover up deer poaching, according to prosecutors.

The men served no more ....until an appeals than a year court judge ruled that the terms fell short of minimum sentences requiring them to serve about four more years. Ammon Bundy said he prayed about the matter and “clearly understood that the Lord was not pleased with what was happening to the Hammonds.” The Hammonds said they lit the fires to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. “I did exactly what the Lord asked me to do,” Bundy said in a YouTube video posted last week in which he appeals to likeminded people to join him in Oregon to protest against the treatment of the Hammonds. In the 2014 showdown with federal authorities in Nevada, Cliven Bundy also justified his actions in

religious terms, saying that he decided to challenge federal agents after praying for guidance. Their ideology aligns with a strain of anti-government thinking that was espoused by some church thought leaders during the Cold War. But it is rejected by mainstream Mormons today, according to Matthew Bowman, a professor of American religion at Henderson State University in Arkansas. Still, whether to submit to church leaders or follow a personal conviction remains “a deep and central tension within Mormon doctrine and culture,” Bowman said. The Bundy family’s dispute with federal authorities dates to 1993, when land managers in Nevada cited concern for the federally protected tortoise and capped Cliven Bundy’s herd at 150 animals on a 250-square-mile allotment of land. Officials later revoked Bundy’s grazing rights completely. Federal officials’ attempts to round up the cattle from the arid habitat were called off in an effort to avoid bloodshed. The 2014 standoff — and the current one in Oregon — are continuations of a decades-long fight over public lands in the West. Many people living in rural

areas say their efforts to make a living have been hurt by federal policies regulating the use of government lands. Conservation groups counter that federal agencies are a better choice than states to manage public lands. That’s because the agencies can authorize the land for multiple uses, such as mining, grazing or recreation, while many Western states are constitutionally obligated to use lands they manage for the most lucrative purpose — often mining. “Certainly the folks that live close to these places have a very legitimate voice in this debate. But what is unique about this national land system is that everyone gets to participate,” said Jessica Goad, advocacy director for the Denver-based Center for Western Priorities. Many locals agree with Ammon Bundy that the second Hammond sentence was too harsh, considering the crime. But they disapprove of Bundy’s occupation and fear it could lead to violence. Those concerns were shared by John O’Keeffe, president of the Oregon Cattleman’s Association, who said Monday that his group “does not support illegal activity taken against the government.”

Farmworker advocates in state ask for criminal probe By Nicholas K. Geranios Associated Press

SPOKANE — Advocates for farmworkers this week asked the state to launch a criminal investigation into whether a business group

influenced answers to a survey of wages and working conditions. The advocates asked state Attorney General Bob Ferguson and the Employment Security Department to investigate the actions of

the Lacey-based Washington Farm Labor Association regarding the survey. “We also request action to protect agricultural workers from economic harm as a consequence of such actions,” said the

letter from the Washington State Labor Council, the AFL-CIO, Columbia Legal Services and others. The voluntary survey asked growers how and how much they pay workers for different tasks and

different crops, such as hourly wages for pruning and piece-rate pay — or how much they produce — for harvest. The data is used by the U.S. Department of Labor to set wage rates for employment contracts,

such as those for temporary guest workers from foreign countries. The state Employment Security Department released a report in December that showed distinct differences from previous years, possibly reflecting the guidance provided by the Washington Farm Labor Association to apple, cherry and pear growers. The Washington Farm Labor Association did not immediately return telephone calls from The Associated Press on Tuesday. But in a letter sent Monday to the Employment Security Department, association executive director Dan Fazio said his group advised growers to answer survey questions honestly. Fazio wrote that the association recommended providing hourly base pay rates instead of piece rates because they are more consistent through the season. “We believe the survey is improperly magnifying piece-rate wages by asking employers to report the piece rates in the busiest week,” Fazio wrote. “Given the wide fluctuation of piece rates over a season, this is fundamentally unfair.” “We apologize if you believe that our guidance created bias in the survey and we pledge to work with you on outreach in upcoming surveys to provide accurate results,” Fazio wrote. The association, which provides services to farms that hire seasonal employees, urged growers to report paying hourly rates instead of piece rates, because hourly rates are typically lower. Growers were also instructed to be vague about how often they pay bonuses, and to say they do not provide free housing for workers’ family members, the Employment Security report said. The Washington Farm Labor Association is the state’s largest recruiter of guest workers from Mexico under the federal H-2A program, with more than 6,000 contracts in the past few years.

charge in Washington where capital punishment is an option. Roe said that he chose not to seek the death penalty “due to some evidence of delusions suffered and mental illness of the defendant.” “I don’t think either of those things are significant enough to constitute a defense to the charge, but (I) did certainly take them into account in deciding not to seek the death penalty,” he added. The prosecuting attorney in 2011 sought the execution of a Washington State Reformatory inmate who was convicted of killing Monroe corrections officer Jayme Biendl. A jury sentenced Byron Scherf to death. He is among nine men on the state’s death row. The convicted rapist’s conviction and sentence are pending appeal. Gov. Jay Inslee imposed a moratorium on state-sanctioned executions not long after taking office. He said the use of the death penalty is “unequally applied” across the state, and sought by county prosecutors with more resources. The state’s Association of Prosecuting Attorneys recently announced that it will urge lawmakers to put a referendum on the ballot this year asking voters to decide whether Washington should retain the death penalty.

Obama acts to curb gun sales Tearful president voices frustration when unveiling 10-point plan By Josh Lederman

Afghanistan: U.S. service member killed, 2 wounded CAROLYN KASTER / ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Barack Obama wipes away tears as he speaks in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday about steps his administration is taking to reduce gun violence.

Inslee to announce state gun initiative Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is set to announce an executive action seeking to curb gun violence. Inslee will announce his statewide initiative Wednesday at the Navos Mental Health and Wellness Center in Burien. Washington already has expanded background checks to include online sales and purchases made at gun shows as a result of a 2014 voter-approved ballot measure. Associated Press

today,” Manchin said. The centerpiece of Obama’s plan is an attempt to narrow the loophole that exempts gun sales from background checks if the seller isn’t a federal registered dealer. With new federal “guidance,” the administration is clarifying that even those who sell just a few weapons at gun shows, flea markets or online can be deemed dealers and required to conduct checks on prospective buyers. Whether that step can make a significant dent in unregulated gun sales is an open question, and one not easily answered. Millions of guns are sold annually in informal settings outside of gun shops, including many through private sales arranged online. But the Obama administration acknowledged it couldn’t

quantify how many gun sales would be newly subjected to background checks, nor how many currently unregistered gun sellers would have to obtain a license. Easily reversible by a future president, the government’s guidance to gun sellers lacks the legal oomph of a new law, such as the one Obama and likeminded lawmakers tried but failed to pass in 2013. The Justice Department said online the guidance “has no regulatory effect and is not intended to create or confer any rights, privileges, or benefits in any matter, case, or proceeding.” What’s more, none of the steps would have probably prevented any of the recent mass shootings that Obama invoked in the East Room: Aurora, Oak Creek, Charleston, Newtown, to name some. But Obama

defiantly rejected that critique, dismissing it as the tired trope of gun lobbyists who ask, “Why bother trying?” “I reject that thinking,” Obama said. “We maybe can’t save everybody, but we could save some.” Obama readily conceded the executive steps will be challenged in court, a prediction quickly echoed by Republicans. The White House asserted confidence Obama was acting legally, and said Justice Department and White House lawyers had worked diligently to ensure the steps were watertight. Other new steps include 230 new examiners the FBI will hire to process background checks, aiming to prevent delays that enabled the accused gunman in Charleston, South Carolina, to get a gun when the government took too long. Obama is also asking the government to research smart gun technology to reduce accidental shootings and asking Congress for $500 million to improve mental health care. Other provisions aim to better track lost or stolen guns and prevent trusts or corporations from buying dangerous weapons without background checks.

N. Korea says it has conducted H-bomb test By Foster Klug and Kim Tong-Hyung Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said Wednesday it had conducted a powerful hydrogen bomb test, a defiant and surprising move that, if confirmed, would be a huge jump in its quest to improve its limited nuclear arsenal. A television anchor said in a propaganda-heavy statement that the North had tested a “miniaturized” hydrogen bomb, elevating the country’s “nuclear might to the next level” and providing it with a weapon to defend against the United States and its other enemies. The statement said the test was a “perfect success.” South Korea’s Defense Ministry said, without elaborating, that it was bolstering its security posture in response. There has long been skepticism by Washington and nuclear experts on past North Korean claims about H-bombs, which are much more powerful and much more difficult to make than atomic bombs. But a confirmed test would be seen as extremely worrying and lead to a strong push for new, tougher sanctions on North Korea at the United Nations. North Korean nuclear tests are worrying because each new blast is seen as pushing North Korea’s scientists and engineers closer to their goal of

Malaysia Airlines lifts baggage ban KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia Airlines said Wednesday it has lifted a ban on check-in baggage on flights to Paris and Amsterdam, after the move angered many passengers who slammed the airline on social media. The U-turn came less than 24 hours after the airline announced that passengers cannot check in baggage for Tuesday and Wednesday flights to the two European cities due to “unseasonably strong headwinds” on a longer flight path it is taking. The airline said it recently had to operate a longer route to Europe, via Egyptian airspace, for safety reasons. It said strong headwinds over the past four days were in excess of 200 knots, which can add up to 15 percent to fuel burn on its Boeing 777 aircraft.

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Tears streaking his cheeks, President Barack Obama launched a final-year push Tuesday to tighten sales of firearms in the U.S., using his presidential powers in the absence of tougher gun restrictions that Congress has refused to pass. Obama struck a combative tone as he came out with plans for expanded background checks and other modest measures that have drawn consternation from gun rights groups, which he accused of making Congress their hostage. Palpable, too, was Obama’s extreme frustration at having made such little progress on gun control since the killing of 20 first-graders in Connecticut more than three years ago. “First-graders,” Obama said, wiping away tears as he recalled the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. “Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad.” Obama’s 10-point plan to keep guns from those who shouldn’t have them marked a concession by the president: He’ll leave office without securing the new gun control laws he’s desperately implored Congress to pass. Only Congress can enact more sweeping changes that gun control advocates say are the only way to truly stem the frequency of mass shootings. “It won’t happen overnight,” Obama said. “It won’t happen during this Congress. It won’t happen during my presidency.” But, he added optimistically, “a lot of things don’t happen overnight.” The National Rifle Association, the largest gun group, panned Obama’s plan and said it was “ripe for abuse,” although the group didn’t specify what steps, if any, it will take to oppose or try to block it. Even Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat and gunowner who co-wrote the bipartisan bill Obama supported in 2013, took issue with the president’s move. “Instead of taking unilateral executive action, the president should work with Congress and the American people, just as I’ve always done, to pass the proposals he announced



North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gestures as he watches a military parade in Pyongyang, North Korea, on Oct. 10.

building a bomb small enough to place on a missile that can reach the U.S. mainland. A successful H-bomb test would be a big step for the North. In a hydrogen bomb, radiation from a nuclear fission explosion sets off a fusion reaction responsible for a powerful blast and radioactivity. Crowds gathered outside a large video screen near a Pyongyang train station to cheer and take video and photos on their mobile phones as the state TV anchor delivered the statement. North Korea is thought to have a handful of rudimentary nuclear bombs and has spent decades trying to perfect a multistage, long-range missile to eventually carry smaller versions of those bombs. After

several failures, it put its first satellite into space with a long-range rocket launched in December 2012. The U.N. called the launch a banned test of ballistic missile technology. Some analysts say the North hasn’t likely achieved the technology needed to manufacture a miniaturized warhead that could fit on a long-range missile capable of hitting the U.S. But there is a growing debate on just how far the North has advanced in its secretive nuclear and missile programs. In the first indication of a possible test, the U.S. Geological Survey measured an earthquake Wednesday morning with a magnitude of 5.1. An official from the Korea Metrological Administration, South Korea’s weather agency,

said the agency believed the earthquake was caused artificially, based on an analysis of the seismic waves and because it originated 30 miles north of Kilju, where North Korea’s main nuclear test site is located. The country conducted all of its three previous atomic detonations there. Lassina Zerbo, the head of the U.N. Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization which monitors worldwide for nuclear testing, said in a statement that if confirmed, a nuclear test by North Korea would be a breach of the treaty and a grave threat to international peace and security. South Korea said it will consult with allies and regional powers to get North Korea to face the consequences of the nuclear test it said it had carried out, such as additional U.N. sanctions. Presidential security official Cho Tae-yongsaid North Korea must abide by U.N. resolutions that require the country to scrap its nuclear and ballistic missile programs completely and irreversibly. In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the North Korean announcement of a hydrogen bomb test is a threat to his nation’s safety. Abe told reporters, “We absolutely cannot allow this, and condemn it strongly.” Abe said he will take “strong action” and work with other nations as well as the U.N.

A U.S. service member was killed and two were wounded in hours-long fighting Tuesday in southern Afghanistan. The fighting, which reflects intensified efforts by the U.S. and its Afghan partners to push back against Taliban gains, was near the city of Marja, Helmand province, which shares a border with Pakistan. The Taliban in recent weeks have focused their efforts on retaking parts of Helmand, and the U.S. has countered with U.S. special operations forces working with Afghan troops.

Morocco: Key intel role A top Moroccan intelligence official said Tuesday that it was his country that put French and Belgian police on the trail of the network behind the November attacks in Paris that killed 130, and pinpointed the location of the suspected ringleader. The director of the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations, Abdelhak Khiame, said that “this intelligence precisely allowed France to avoid more severe attacks that were planned.” European investigators are trying to piece together the geography of the Nov. 13 attacks. The Islamic State extremist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Serbia: Trump endorsed Serbian nationalist leader Vojislav Seselj, who is wanted for war crimes by an international tribunal in the Hague, called on Serbs in the U.S. to support business magnate Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Seselj, once an ally of the late Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic during the wars that split apart the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, appealed in a tweet Sunday to the hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens who claim Serb ethnicity to support the Republican frontrunner. Seselj isn’t the first foreign figure to voice support for Trump. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the real-estate tycoon “a very colorful candidate and talented,” to which Trump responded the Russian leader is a “powerful leader,” blaming poor U.S.-Russian relations on President Barack Obama.

ACROSS THE U.S. N.H.: GOP candidates call for end to addiction stigma Republican presidential hopefuls called for a more compassionate discussion around drug addiction Tuesday, with emphasis on substance abuse as a curable disease, not a moral failing. “This is a national calling,” former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said at the New Hampshire Forum on Addiction and the Heroin Epidemic. “We should be able to talk about this without all the stigma attached to it. We need to eliminate the stigma.” A state that’s seen drug deaths skyrocket in recent years, New Hampshire’s prominent place on the campaign calendar has turned drug addiction into a hot-button issue.

Ill.: Drug-miscarriage link A prescription drug for yeast infections may increase chances for miscarriages when used early in pregnancy, a Danish study suggests. The study involved fluconazole, available in pills or liquid. It doesn’t provide any proof of harm, although the drug has been linked with other problems when used in high doses in pregnancy. The study, by researchers at State Serum Institute in Copenhagen, was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. From Herald news services

Persistent oil glut steadies prices By David Koenig

oil-producing countries, failed to halt the slide. Oil prices are likely to remain about where they are until either production drops or the world economy perks up and drives demand higher. The U.S. Energy Department expects the nation’s production to drop by about 500,000 barrels a day this year, but OPEC has vowed to hold to existing production levels.

New reports indicated that manufacturing is continuing to struggle, with factory activity falling in December for the second straight month in the U.S. and the 10th straight month in China. Slow growth means that the current oversupply of oil could be more stubborn than expected.

Alaska loses its AAA rating

Yahoo pulls plug on video hub SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo pulled the plug on Yahoo Screen, an online video hub that had once been envisioned as the beleaguered company’s answer to Netflix and YouTube. CEO Marissa Mayer oversaw an overhaul of Yahoo Screen 16 months ago that came in the form of a new mobile application, thousands of clips from NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” and a variety of other popular TV shows. But Yahoo Screen never attracted the vast audiences that flock to Netflix and YouTube.

Auto sales record U.S. auto sales hit a record high of 17.47 million in 2015, topping the old record of 17.35 million set in 2000. Analysts expect sales could go even higher this year as unemployment continues to decline and more young buyers enter the market. Low gas prices and interest rates left more money in buyers’ pockets. Automakers reported December and full-year sales Tuesday.

The drop in oil prices is hurting the state’s budget Standard & Poor says.

Bloomberg Alaska had its credit rating cut to AA+ from AAA by Standard & Poor’s as persistently low oil prices leave the state with a growing gap in its budget. The downgrades of Alaska’s general obligations, appropriation debt and bonds from its energy authority “reflect our view of the state’s credit quality as oil prices have continued to slide, falling below forecasts from earlier this year, causing an already large structural gulf between unrestricted general fund revenues and expenditures to widen further,” S&P analyst Gabriel Petek wrote Tuesday in a report. The credit rater’s outlook remains negative, signaling future cuts if lawmakers don’t pass measures to curb the budget deficit during this year’s legislative session, according to the report.

Amazon: 40 percent sales increase on Cyber Monday By Mae Anderson Associated Press

NEW YORK — Amazon’s sellers had a strong Cyber Monday. The largest U.S. retailer said Tuesday that customers ordered more than 23 million items from its sellers on Cyber Monday, the popular online shopping day following Thanksgiving. That was up 40 percent from the previous year. Meanwhile, Amazon’s investments in its “Fulfillment By Amazon” service seem to be bearing fruit, with 1 billion items delivered in 2015 for businesses selling on Amazon. The service stores, picks, packs and ships orders for sellers

worldwide. Sellers pay for the service; in return their items become eligible for Amazon’s $99 Prime annual loyalty program, that includes free two-day shipping on many items, and its millions of members. Amazon has been investing heavily in its shipping infrastructure, adding sorting centers, which sort packages by zip code and deliver them to post offices. And they’ve started to roll out thousands of trucks to speed up package delivery from its warehouses to the sorting centers. There have also been media reports that Amazon is in talks to lease jets, but that has not been confirmed by Amazon. It seems to be paying off.

Unites shipped by “Fulfillment by Amazon” rose 60 percent during the November and December holiday season, compared with a 50 percent increase a year ago. The growth in sellers using FBA jumped 50 percent, though that’s slower than last year’s 65 percent growth. Sellers on Amazon come from 100 countries and account for about 45 percent of the total items sold worldwide on Amazon. Seattle-based Amazon doesn’t release specific sales figures on the overall holiday season. Overall, online sales, though still only about 10 percent of total retail sales, are outpacing brick-andmortar sales.

Malicious acts deadlier than air accidents By Joan Lowy Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Malicious acts surpassed accidents as the chief cause of airline deaths worldwide in 2015 for the second year in a row, according to an industry tally. There were only eight accidental airline crashes last year accounting for 161 passenger and crew deaths — the fewest crashes and deaths since at least 1946, reflecting continued improvement in safety technology and aircraft design, according to Flightglobal, an aviation news and industry data company. That tally of 161 accidental deaths is far outpaced by the 374 killed when a Germanwings airliner was deliberately flown into a mountainside in the French Alps last March, and a Russian

airliner packed with tourists that exploded over Egypt in October. In 2014, the toll from a Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared and another that was shot down over Ukraine was 537 deaths compared to 436 accident deaths that year. Those tallies are for all types of airline flights, including cargo, positioning, training, and maintenance flights. There were just 98 paying passengers killed last year. It’s a vast improvement from the 790 passengers killed in 2007, and the annual average of 1,289 passengers killed in accidental crashes in the 1970s. “In recent years, airline safety has improved very considerably to the point where, typically, there are now very few fatal accidents and fatalities in a year,” said See AIR, Page A12

Fare war under way Several U.S. airlines are raising base roundtrip fares on domestic flights by $6, the first large-scale increase since June. JPMorgan Chase analyst Jamie Baker said Delta Air Lines began boosting prices Monday and was quickly matched by Southwest Airlines. American, United, JetBlue and Virgin America also said on Tuesday that they matched the increase.

A pet toy company that designed a line of products after the “Angry Birds” video game characters has settled a lawsuit brought by a Seattle artist. Juli Adams said she came up with the idea for “Angry Birds” pet toys and designed them for the The Hartz Mountain Corp. in 2006, before the video game existed. Adams said she was cheated out of millions when Hartz entered a deal with Rovio Entertainment, which makes the “Angry Birds” video game. She argued that Hartz licensed her intellectual property to Rovio without her permission. From Herald news services

With little reason to expect stronger demand or cuts in production soon, investors seemed to discount the rising tension between the Saudis and Iranians over Saudi Arabia’s execution of an opposition Shiite cleric. Stewart Glickman, an analyst with S&P Capital IQ, said geopolitical risk has lost some of its ability to influence on oil prices. “It is maybe a sense of security from the marketplace that with this seeming glut of crude oil that you can have tensions in Middle East and they

The previous best year was 2014, with a fatal accident rate of 1 per 2.5 million flights. Airline operations are now about four or five times safer than they were 20 years ago. A big reason for the improving record is better engineering: Today’s airliners are more highly

don’t count for as much as they used to three or four years ago,” he said in an interview. The explanation lies partly in robust production from the U.S., Glickman said. Saudi officials are reluctant to cut production in a bid to raise prices because they’ll just concede sales to U.S. producers who will fill the void in supply. Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute, said that lifting the ban on exports of U.S. crude has changed the geopolitics of energy. Oil prices didn’t spike after the Saudi-Iran confrontation partly because “the US has come in as a major player,” he said Tuesday during a speech in Washington. Iran wants to regain some oil exports that it lost while under economic

And they’re equipped with safety systems introduced in recent decades, and repeatedly improved over time, that have nearly eliminated mid-air collisions between airliners and what the industry calls “controlled flight into terrain” — pilots who lose situational awareness and fly their planes into a mountainside or into the ground. The aircraft improvements are due primarily to lessons learned from crash investigations that are taken into account when new planes are designed, said John Goglia, a former National Transportation Safety Board member. As older planes are replaced with newer planes,

aviation becomes safer, he said. But more needs to be done to weed out disturbed pilots and guard against acts of terrorism, experts said. The Germanwings case is especially perplexing, said John Cox, a former airline pilot and aviation safety consultant. Pilot Andreas Lubitz managed to conceal his problems even though airlines continually evaluate pilots for signs of trouble. Pilots also evaluate each other. It’s not known what caused Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 to disappear while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But many aviation safety experts theorize that it was mostly likely the result of deliberate acts, probably by one of the two pilots.

Terrorists “have been probing nonstop since 9/11 and every once in a while they find a way to get through,” Goglia said. The new frontier in airline safety is a managerial philosophy known as SMS, or safety management systems, he said. Airlines gather data on safety trends, and encourage pilots, dispatchers, mechanics and others to report problems by promising there will be no retaliation for mistakes. The information is then shared across the industry in an effort to spot problems before they lead to an accident.

crude oil-related tax revenue. The state will collect only a third of the expected $5.2 billion in revenue for the fiscal year ending June 30, creating a midyear shortfall, said Deven Mitchell, the state’s debt manager at the Alaska Department of Revenue. Alaska is seeking to increase the size of its potential 2016 pensionobligation bond sale to $2.6 billion as part of a multistep process to repair the state’s budget. That may also include a personal income tax, something the state hasn’t seen in 35 years. The state has given oil dividend checks to residents, though that tradition may end, Mitchell said. “The action taken by

Standard & Poor’s to lower Alaska’s credit rating is concerning and premature given that the legislature has not had time to act on a long-term fiscal plan,” Gov. Bill Walker said in a statement. “However, this further solidifies the need to address our state’s fiscal challenges in the immediate future.” Moody’s said in a separate report Tuesday that Walker’s proposals, including the income tax, represent “a bold effort to address the state’s enormous budget imbalance caused by sharply lower oil prices and to shift the future funding of government operations away from direct oil sector volatility.” Only nine states that issue general obligations now carry top ratings from S&P: Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

IN OUR VIEW | Trans-Pacific Partnership

Ratify Pacific Rim trade pact If you need an example of Washington state’s standing in the world of international trade, recall the September visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Everett and Seattle, which — with visits to Boeing and Microsoft and with state and local officials — was more than a refueling stop on his way to Washington, D.C. Actually, you probably recall the traffic mess during Xi’s visit more than anything, but the fact remains that Washington state is a vital link for the United States and its trading partners, and the state and its workers are just as reliant on international trade. More than 40 percent of all jobs in the state are tied to trade, reports the Washington Council on International Trade. The state Department of Commerce reports that state exports topped $90.5 billion in 2014, a 10 percent increase over 2013. On a per capita basis, the state agency says, Washington state is the nation’s largest exporter. Boeing comes first to mind, especially in Everett, but Eric Schinfeld, president of the WCIT, says the full picture

includes other aerospace companies and manufacturers, information technology businesses, agriculture, professional services and tourism. Washington state and many of its businesses and workers now also stand to benefit following the completion this fall of negotiations for the TransPacific Partnership, a trade agreement among the U.S. and 11 Pacific Rim countries, the largest trading partners being Japan, Australia, Canada and Mexico. President Barack Obama is expected to put the pact before Congress later this year for either its approval or its rejection. Judging from the earlier votes in Congress that gave the president the authority for final negotiations, the support should be there. But TPP supporters have some work ahead in convincing even some of the state’s own congressional delegation and the public as well. A Pew survey in July, before the agreement was available for public review, found 29 percent of Americans surveyed believed the trade agreement would be a bad thing for the country; 49

percent said it would be good; 22 percent had no opinion. The case can be made for its ratification, and not just to those in Washington state but across the country. The TPP eliminates foreign tariffs on products made in the U.S., correcting an imbalance that has worked against U.S. companies and workers. Tariffs placed on foreign goods in the U.S. average 1.4 percent, where U.S. goods in other countries face average tariffs of 4.9 percent in Japan and 7.9 percent in Mexico. Critics have compared the TPP to the North American Free Trade Agreement, but Schinfeld points out that the new agreement actually will correct some areas where NAFTA fell short. During negotiations, critics also questioned how the pact would protect and promote environmental and labor laws. There are specific standards that countries such as Vietnam and Mexico must meet regarding the environment, minimum wage, unions, child labor and food safety laws. Those standards now have some enforcement “teeth,”

Schinfeld said, through the threat of sanctions and the reimposition of tariffs. Another criticism was that the international court that would oversee disputes could block regulations in the U.S. The settlement mechanism is similar to other such systems in other trade agreements. In 18 previous cases where suits were filed against the U.S., Schinfeld said, the U.S. has not lost a case. And the TPP’s system is considerably more protective of state and national laws. The other argument for ratification is what could happen it the absence of the TransPacific Partnership. China, which was not a participant in the negotiations, is crafting its own trade pacts with Pacific Rim countries. Without the TPP, China and other countries can dictate the terms of trade, as well as how concerns for labor and environment are addressed, or not addressed. Trade won’t stop without the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but with it more jobs can be protected on a playing field that is leveled by protections for consumers, the environment and all workers.

Programs such as STEM classes at Post Middle School, elementary school choir, technology in the classroom, and middle and high school athletics all contribute to making Arlington schools some of the best in the state. This levy supports those programs as well as school nurses and our school resource officer, both vital parts of keeping our students healthy and safe. I encourage my fellow citizens to educate themselves on this levy and join me in voting yes on Feb. 9.

and tougher penalties for gun-related crimes is a better deterrent, but why are not the NRA-backed congressmen doing anything about that? We need to pass laws with mandatory sentences that judges have to impose.


Fireworks on New Year’s illegal To the many people who don’t seem to know or don’t think anyone cares, it is not legal to set off fireworks in unincorporated parts of Snohomish County (meaning anywhere outside city limits) on or around New Year’s Eve. This includes the afternoon and evening of Dec. 31 (the booms started in my neighborhood around 4 p.m., the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, and the subsequent hours until dawn (the final barrage in my area occurred between 4 and 5 a.m.). Nor is it legal to set off fireworks on the following evenings of Jan. 1 and 2 (when we were treated to more nerve-wracking explosions during a time of day when we’re normally trying to unwind and relax). Snohomish County Code 30.53A.722 allows one day per year when fireworks enthusiasts in unincorporated areas can legally set off as many annoying booms as they like: July 4 from 9 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. If you miss that opportunity or think it’s inadequate, tough — it’s time to put away the fireworks until the next July 4. If you’re within the city limits of Everett, Lynnwood and most other south county cities, fireworks are banned every day of the year so you may want to move to the Tulalip Reservation or some other fireworks-friendly jurisdiction. So the next time you’re tempted to put flame to fuse, consider the potential legal penalties, children startled out their sleep, veterans with PTSD, terrified pets and irritated adults within the radius of your idiotic noise pollution.

Parents, not more laws, are needed In response to the Dec. 31 letter, “More laws won’t cure societal ills”: I agree with the writer. But the cause is not being addressed by him, nor the government and its law making. Although the government is the cause of bad parenting. The nanny sate we now live in caused by controlling/interfering government has taken over the responsibility of parents of raising their

Parents are afraid to reprimand or punish wayward behavior. Parents need to be brought into court with their children when a crime is committed and pay the consequences of their allowed bad behavior. Parents will soon learn early to instill right from wrong and have regard for others. It all starts at the top and filters down, set by example. Jon Fleming Edmonds


Renew levy to keep excellence

As an Arlington public schools parent with children ranging in age from elementary to high school, I will be voting yes on the upcoming levy renewal and encourage my fellow community members to do the same. This levy is a renewal of the current one that will expire at the end of the year, and it won’t increase the taxes of our citizens. In fact, the estimated tax rate of this levy ($3.56 per $1,000 of assessed value) is actually less than the current rate of $3.60 per $1,000 of assessed value.

Congress, NRA defy citizens’ will President Obama is resorting to executive decision to try to tighten up gun-control loopholes. The NRA has responded by saying he is “Defying the will of the people” by bypassing Congress. Talk about calling the kettle black! All the polls, not conducted by the NRA, show the vast majority of people are in favor of tightening up gun control laws. It is, in fact, Congress that is bought and paid for by the NRA, which is defying the will of the people. The Congress is not reflective of the wishes of the people. On the contrary, it is an obstruction to what the people want. If doing background checks on more gun sales results in even one less tragedy, is it not worth doing? I have a concealed weapons license and I didn’t find it hard to get, nor am I paranoid that the government is coming to take my guns away. I agree mandatory

State initiative won’t cut rate I disagree wholeheartedly with the Dec. 31 “Other Voices” Bloomberg View editorial, “Carbon tax should return its revenue to residents.” The writer purports to have the best interests of the citizens of Washington state at heart, and yet the writer knows so little about Washington, or even the initiative, I-732, which they claim will cut the state’s income tax rate. I guess Washington state, not having an income tax to cut, is just one of those niggling little details voters should leave to the corporate lawyers who wrote I-732 to work out for us.

Democracy is unsatisfying to the selfish


ell, knock me down and call me Cliven. A bunch of patriotic ammosexuals have battled past uncaged sage grouse and stormed an empty building in Oregon, protesting the jailing of arsonists. Because if we can’t burn stuff wherever we want, what’s next? Stop signs at intersections? My suggestion: Fence the building off, invite as SID SCHWAB many others of the Bundiose as want in, turn off electricity and water and ignore them. Then, when the Viagra runs out, lock ‘em up. Criminals and seditious (if borderline comical) terrorists, they deserve nothing less. (The press calls them “peaceful.” Imagine the terminology had it been Black Lives Matter or “Occupy.” Or Muslim-Americans.) I’ll guess those people, assuming they claim any belief in democracy (clearly, they don’t understand it), are supporters of Trump or Cruz. Each bases his campaign on grievance and resentment, haranguing about non-existent tyranny, loss of liberty, impending takeover by roving gangs of atheist Muslim ISIS immigrants. Freedom, they warn, is threatened everywhere, starting with penalties for illegally grazing or conflagrating on government lands, leading directly to rounding up Christians and poking them with Sharia sticks. So those tough guys who, in their minds, would have fought their way across beaches of WW II and through jungles of Vietnam (having mostly found it inconvenient to join the current military), grabbed up their long guns and bandoliers, braved a wintering wildlife preserve and a building on holiday, to defend America by breaking its most fundamental citizen compact. Maybe by the time this column is published we’ll have heard from Trump and Cruz; I predict they won’t outright condemn such lawlessness. They’ll blame it on Obama, sad that such actions have become necessary, as we peer from our barricaded homes to see true Americans marched off in chains, mules pulling wagons because gas is illegal, shards of former greatness falling from the skies like WKRP turkeys, while praise for turgid “militiamen” blares from every right-wing radio station and from Rupert’s and Roger’s propaganda central. These are intractably delusional, selfish people whose real problem is that democracy is the opposite of selfishness. Depending on a shared sense of common goals, it recognizes that a society made of people unwilling to compromise turns to totalitarianism. For America, lasting freedom requires making the occasional sacrifice, accepting constraints that won’t appeal to everyone. Holding fire till the next election. And if that one doesn’t work out, wait till the next. Or the next. Recognizing that not getting everything one wants is the price of living in a republic as enduring and creative and resilient as ours. Given its rejection of such ideals, it’s amazing it took as long as it did for the present-day Republican Party to give itself over to totalitarian demagogues, while convincing its carefully blinded voters it’s really about defending freedom. Today’s Republican party and those who claim allegiance to it (I aver, yet again, that I respect true conservatives and wish their remnants controlled the current party) are only about rationalizing selfishness and staggering short-sightedness. For what will be the inevitable result if our country turns entirely to the agenda of those would-be leaders? If the takeover in neighboring Oregon is the inevitable result of Trump’s and Cruz’ and Fox “news’” round-the-clock suborning of treason, it’s weak tea compared to the greater implications for us all. Because whatever else might be true about those melodramatic (YouTube: “patriots,” they’ve suffered nothing like the struggles of hopelessness and impoverishment faced by those fellow citizens of the government they so love to hate, whose numbers would increase exponentially were Republican priorities to overtake our country. What happens to kids growing up in poverty, who’ve been told they don’t matter, denied decent education, health care, jobs, and hope? From unwillingness on the part of the already-haves to provide a helping hand, they’ll have no options but failure or crime, costing way more than aid denied. If it’ll help, wetland warriors, consider social justice the ultimate form of selfishness. Then take your self-important fantasies and go home. Sorry, the Christmas truce is over.

Twitter appears ready to expand length of tweets Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter appears ready to loosen its decade-old restriction on the length of messages in a bid to make its service more appealing to a wider audience accustomed to the greater freedom offered by Facebook and other forums. CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey telegraphed

Twitter’s intentions in a tweet posted Tuesday after the technology news site Re/Code reported the company is exploring increasing its limits on text from 140 characters to as many as 10,000. Dorsey didn’t directly address the Re/Code report that cited unnamed people, but he made it clear that Twitter isn’t wedded to the 140-character

limit. He illustrated his point by posting a screenshot of a text consisting of 1,325 characters. San Francisco-based Twitter Inc. declined to comment on its plans. In his message, Dorsey wrote that Twitter has already noticed that many of its roughly 300 million users already have been including screenshots of lengthy texts in their tweets. He indicated

Twitter is examining ways to give people more room to express themselves without polluting the service with gasbags. Imposing some restraint “inspires creativity and brevity. And a sense of speed. We will never lose that feeling,” Dorsey pledged. At the same time, Dorsey said Twitter isn’t “going to be shy about building

more utility and power into Twitter for people. As long as it’s consistent with what people want to do, we’re going to explore it.” Analysts said Dorsey is probably trying to avoid a backlash among longtime Twitter users who consider the 140-character tweeting limit sacred. At the same time, he needs to respond to company shareholders pining for a bigger audience

that would generate more advertising revenue. More revenue eventually could help Twitter turn a profit for the first time in its history. Dorsey helped invent Twitter in 2006 and imposed a 140-character limit on messages so the service would be easy to use on cellphones that had 160-character limits on texts at that time.

Baby: Police determining if other children were hurt From Page A1

Jerrica Schreib, 19, and her boyfriend, Donald Coons, 42, remain behind bars on $500,000 bail each. Coons also is awaiting trial on a meth possession charge from June. “Further charges may arise as the investigation continues,” Dalberg said. The sheriff’s office also is investigating the couple, who lived in unincorporated areas of the county before moving into an Everett motel Dec. 16. Authorities took the baby Dec. 18 after the mother called 911 after the girl became unresponsive.

The man’s daughters, ages 11, 13 and 14, were living with the couple at the motel. The girls have been placed in protective custody by the state. “We are looking into the assault of other family members, including the other children who were with the couple,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said Tuesday. Everett police did not release news of the baby’s death last month while they conducted necessary interviews, Dalberg said. “There was a high risk of flight with the two suspects,” he said. “They were basically transient.”

Detectives are collecting evidence, he said. The city’s major crimes unit and the special assault unit, which investigates crimes against children, are working together on the case. The baby had a severely broken arm, according to court papers. She had never received medical attention for the injury, which appeared to be weeks old. She had other fractures, including broken ribs, plus a black eye and a gash on her chin. She also had pneumonia and meningitis. During a search of the motel room, Everett detectives seized medicine, a

thermometer, a baby bottle, droppers and drug paraphernalia. They initially were investigating the case as a second-degree assault, according to a search warrant. In June, Coons was charged with drug possession. The incident occurred in Lake Stevens in November 2014. At the time, Coons was in a van with a passenger. When a police officer said he might obtain a search warrant, Coons allegedly told him that a bag inside the van contained “a little bit of meth and maybe some heroin.” Coons has adult

misdemeanors for frequenting a place where drugs are used, domestic violence malicious mischief, violation of a protection order and driving with an expired license. Court papers show Coons and his family have a long history of involvement with Child Protective Services. At least one of his daughters has been placed in protective custody before. He sought custody of the girl again in 2012. Court records show years of domestic strife and allegations of drug and alcohol abuse involving Coons and the mothers of

his children. The mother of the two older girls was sentenced to jail after a 2012 forgery conviction. She admitted forging a document saying she was receiving drug treatment. In a written statement, she said she “feared losing her housing and then her kids, and went on to describe a drug relapse, hospitalization for 29 days for an infection, the loss of her fiance (sent to prison), and an earlier CPS case at which time she fought her kids’ father for custody,” court papers said.

Homelessness: Signs of progress among the challenges From Page A1

Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary has said that the state needs to step up to fund mental health services and drug treatment. Jails aren’t designed to adequately care for the mentally ill or people with severe health problems because of addiction. On this front, the state is facing significant challenges of its own. It is struggling to comply with a state law and federal mandate requiring Western State Hospital to cut down on long wait times for evaluating the competency of mentally ill inmates languishing in county jails. A Snohomish County judge has ordered hospital officials and their lawyer, a state assistant attorney general, to submit a plan detailing how they are going to add more beds and provide treatment for patients who are unable to assist with their own defense. In the meantime, Western, the state’s largest psychiatric hospital, is under threat of losing federal funding because of safety concerns inside the facility. Gov. Jay Inslee is asking state lawmakers to approve the spending of millions of additional dollars on hiring nurses, providing pay raises and bonuses to keep psychiatrists from quitting, improving facility security

and adding treatment beds throughout the state. Even if lawmakers agree to the governor’s request, it will take weeks if not months to recruit and hire needed personnel and make the necessary changes at the facility. There are signs of progress, nonetheless. A second detox facility is

expected to open in Snohomish County this year. It will help but not alleviate the shortage of detox beds. And the county, with the aid of state funds, intends to renovate the old Carnegie Building to create a center with transitional housing and social services. In the city of Everett, this

will be the year when its efforts to tackle the needs of its homeless move from preliminary stages into a full-bore charge. The Community Streets Initiative launched by Mayor Ray Stephanson identified 63 actions that if implemented could help the chronic homeless and those with addiction and

mental health problems while also curbing petty crime on the city’s streets. The resulting Safe Streets Plan has led to more social workers riding along with police as they patrol the streets and nonprofit agencies are better coordinating efforts to help homeless people. The city will spend $2.2 million to

create a dedicated unit within the police department composed of officers, a prosecutor and two social workers. Also this year, the city will begin restricting the sale of some cheap and high-alcohol-content beverages in targeted areas of the city. In November, the mayor brought in Lloyd Pendleton, the architect of Utah’s successful program to house the homeless, as a consultant. Pendleton’s visit had an effect because Stephanson is convinced Utah’s “housing first” model — dealing with homelessness first before tackling related issues — is one Everett and Snohomish County should adopt. The mayor has vowed to find five units of housing in the first two months of 2016 and another 15 by midyear. The county has offered $1 million to the city to help in its effort to acquire or build affordable housing. Civic leaders understand reducing homelessness in Everett and across the county will require a longterm investment of time and money. For them, 2016 will be an important year to figure out which approaches pay the best dividends. Jerry Cornfield: 360-3528623; jcornfield@heraldnet. com.

Somers: Chief of staff to be interim deputy executive From Page A1

While the digs might not be familiar, many of the people around him are. Marcia Isenberg, the council’s chief of staff until last week, is taking charge as Somers’ interim deputy executive. Isenberg also will supervise several executive departments, a responsibility she’s expected to keep after Somers makes a longterm decision about his second-in-charge. Moving in the other direction, Stephen Clifton, who worked as an executive director under Lovick, has accepted an offer to work temporarily in Isenberg’s former role as the council’s chief of staff. Former council analyst Susan Neely is joining

Somers’ team as an executive director overseeing public safety and human services. It’s a return for Neely, who worked as a director under former Executive Bob Drewel and for a time, Reardon. Somers’ longtime legislative aide, Eric Parks, is now his chief of staff. Kendee Yamaguchi, an attorney who has worked for Seattle city government and the state Department of Commerce, was hired as Snohomish County’s new trade and economic development director. Somers also replaced the spokesperson, records specialist and others from the executive’s office. Other changes are afoot. Last month, Somers announced that he was letting go of planning

director Clay White, tech director Gage Andrews and emergency management director John Pennington. Other top managers from those departments are filling the directors’ jobs for now: Barb Mock in planning, Jason Biermann in emergency management and Randy Manley in information services. Ricardo Cruz, an attorney who previously worked for the Bellevue and Seattle school districts and the Snohomish County PUD, has taken over as the interim replacement for Bridget Clawson, who retired as HR director last year and moved to a different job in the department. Retired council analyst John Amos is working as the county’s temporary finance

director, a position that was never filled full time during Lovick’s two and a half years in office. Somers pledged to work with the County Council. Councilman Terry Ryan was elected by his colleagues as chairman, giving him a lead role running meetings and drafting next year’s budget. Councilman Brian Sullivan will serve as vice chairman. Somers’ former District 5 council seat remains vacant pending an appointment. Ryan and Somers said their goals overlap. A priority is deciding what to do about replacing the county’s 1960s-vintage courthouse building. A $162 million plan for a new eight-story building north of Wall Street was abandoned over the summer.

“Personally, I think it should be built on our campus (south of Wall Street) and it should be a more modest building, something less expensive than what was proposed before,” Ryan said. Somers said he’s convening a working group of judges, prosecutors, clerks, sheriff’s officials and others who use the building. He hopes to forward recommendations about a replacement project to the council this spring. Also crucial: resolving unease at the county’s largest public employees union, whose contract expired more than a year ago. Members of the Washington State Council of County and City Employees last month rejected the county’s most recent

contract offer and said they’re willing to strike if the sides can’t reach a deal. As Somers was sworn in Monday, union members stood outside the hearing room, carrying protest signs and passing out leaflets describing their dissatisfaction with the contract conundrum. Taking the oath of office along with Somers was Assessor Linda Hjelle, a longtime deputy assessor with the county who won election to her first term in November. Auditor Carolyn Weikel, clerk Sonya Kraski and treasurer Kirke Sievers all were sworn in for a third term, after running unopposed. Noah Haglund: 425339-3465; nhaglund@ Twitter: @ NWhaglund.




How to make the best garlic mashed spuds

Cook gourmet meals with ease

By Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press

Question: What’s the best way to make garlic mashed potatoes? How do you prepare the garlic? — Bill DeJaeger, Riverview, Mich. Answer: The road to prefect garlic-infused mashed potatoes is one worth taking. And there are several ways to prepare the garlic for adding to mashed potatoes. Nobody wants mediocre mashed potatoes, so flavoring and choosing the right potatoes are important. First, think about how strong you want the garlic flavor to be. For a strong garlic flavor, you can add fresh minced garlic to the cooked potatoes when mashing them. You can also cook whole, peeled, garlic cloves (allow 1 clove per potato) with the potatoes. Another option is to saute minced garlic in some butter or a bit of olive oil (or both) before adding it to the cooked potatoes. By sauteing first, it tames the bite sometimes associated with garlic. Just be sure to watch it carefully and don’t saute the garlic over heat that is too high or it will brown or burn and turn bitter. If this happens, toss it out and start over or that bitter flavor will permeate the potatoes. You can also infuse the garlic flavor into the liquid you are adding to the potatoes. Since any cream, milk or broth should be warmed first (more on this later) before adding it to the potatoes, add the garlic to any of these as they warm. Place the liquid and chopped garlic in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat at least 5 minutes so liquid becomes infused with the garlic. Once warm, strain the liquid to remove the garlic pieces. My preference for mashed potatoes with garlic that provides the most flavor is to roast the garlic first. Roasting the garlic mellows its flavor and softens the texture. Roasted garlic’s flavor is sweet with hints of nuttiness and its texture is spreadable like butter, making it an easy addition to mashed potatoes. In fact, you can spread it on toast just like butter. Once you make roasted garlic, you will become addicted to it. You’ll need to plan on a longer cooking time because it takes about 45 minutes to roast the garlic, but it’s so worth it. Here’s how to roast it in the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Remove as much loose papery skin as possible and cut about 1⁄4-inch off the pointed end of the whole garlic bulb. This may not expose all the cloves; take a paring knife to any unexposed cloves and slice off the top. Or remove the skin and break the cloves from the bulb. Place the garlic on two layers of foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Enclose the garlic in the foil (do not wrap the foil tight around the garlic) and place it in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the garlic is soft. Remove from the oven. When it’s cool enough to handle, squeeze the pulp from the bulb and add it to the mashed potatoes along with any other ingredients you are using. Before you start any mashed potatoes dish, it’s important to use starchy potatoes to help absorb dairy better: Russets will turn out light, fluffy, snowy-white mashed potatoes. Yukon Golds give a creamy, more pureed texture and a yellower hue. Red-skinned potatoes make for creamier mashed potatoes. Now, about that warmed liquid. It’s best to warm the liquid before adding to the potatoes. If you add cold liquid (cream, milk, half-andhalf, broth) you run the risk of the hot potatoes cooling down and not absorbing the liquid. This also makes you overwork the potatoes to get the liquid absorbed, which makes for gummy or gluey mashed potatoes.

Terra’s Kitchen helps home cooks who lack time, inspiration By Erin Pride-Swaney

Who should get this?

For The Herald

Some days, I need the book to cook for me. There is a distinct difference between poring over a stack of cookbooks and actually getting into the kitchen to make the stuff. I’m guilty of popcorn and wine meals, swinging through McDonald’s and topping whipped cream with granola for a picky toddler’s dinner. Life with kids has rather taken me by surprise. A busy bustling home, while wonderful when brimming with well-fed children, can be downright demoralizing when one is hanging on your leg, one whining that she’s dying of hunger and the other moping about looking like death. Then: Hi, Honey, you’re home. When East Coast-based Terra’s Kitchen reached out to me to sample their newly launched Northwest branch of meal delivery, I wasn’t about to say no. Terra’s Kitchen offers a sense of powerful kitchen accomplishment while providing relief to my dead-brain food planning. They deliver all the components for a healthy meal to your door in the cutest reusable fridge box, named The Vessel. The food for the Northwest branch is sourced locally and ships from California.

To sign up, make sure they deliver to your area, select the date of delivery, then fill The Vessel at least 45 percent full — fill it 60 percent full and they wave the $10-$15 shipping fee. The meals are priced per person ($11.99$16.99), but packaged in meals of two, so double that dollar amount for each meal you select. Every dish has its own small containers with all necessary ingredients (other than basic pantry items), well-trimmed quality meats and fresh vegetables. Not normally a fan of pre-made dressings or marinades, I was

surprised how much I enjoyed shaking up the lemon ginger sauce, used as a quick marinade for the eggplant and a dressing with the lamb and orzo salad. My daughter easily helped with the teriyaki chicken and pineapple kabobs. I don’t have a grill pan as specified, so I used a cast iron skillet. A pretty smoky endeavor indoors, the meal was good, but not as friendly to clean up as the others we sampled. The two salads I tried were convenient to grab on the way out the door. Given my allergies, a prepackaged meal is helpful when going out on errands. The kale salad mixed up nicely, but the French tuna salad was a bit of an odd mix and included potatoes

that didn’t hold up well in their pre-cooked state. Our dinners were delicious, but the lamb tasted the most “homemade” and was surprisingly the easiest — I made this while packing to go out of town, laughing that I was eating a gourmet meal of lamb loin while running about looking for various toiletries, Nintendo games and extra pairs of underwear. Not my norm, I assure you. Terra’s Kitchen sends detailed recipes and only a few times did I find I had to come to the dish with much cooking foreknowledge — the asparagus needed to be trimmed. Don’t laugh, they’re so thorough with each meal prep and recipe card that you end up making a full-blown gourmet meal with the ease of boxed mac ’n cheese. As my husband and I did a little number crunching, we concluded that although the price tag is a bit high per meal, Terra’s See GOURMET, Page B2

‘Fire + Ice’ anticipates the flavors of spring By Erin Pride-Swaney For The Herald

When days turn gray and cold and the holidays have passed, I enjoy transitioning from cozy “pumpkin spice” flavors to still a wintery but more perky and clean palate in anticipation of spring. With dill, rye, coriander, juniper and lingonberry, Darra Goldstein’s “Fire + Ice: Classic Nordic Cooking” offers a respite from the sage and squash meals I’ve been favoring, while still not skimping on comfort foods. Goldstein’s writing is engaging and a read I eagerly cozied up with. “Fire + Ice” is filled with travel and dining stories spanning Goldstein’s years living, working and eating in Scandinavia, and her recipes are woven in and out of instruction on Nordic fare and ways of life. My husband’s mother is Norwegian by birth and her father spent long seasons in Alaska aboard fishing boats homeported in Ballard. She introduced me to lefse with lingonberry preserves,

The recipes of ‘Fire + Ice’ are surprisingly simple, despite several of their more complicated origins, and Goldstein is careful to give a heads-up if one is more labor intensive. Goldstein’s rendition of lohikeitto, or salmon soup, was fresh and not too heavy on the cream. I further simplified by using a filet of frozen salmon, which after a slight thaw, cuts easily into the instructed cube size. With the comfort of cream and potato, ample dill and a finish of briny trout roe, the salmon soup was a big hit. I braved the gravlax, which was so easy I’m wondering why I’ve never made it before, and finally used my Ballard-sourced bakers ammonia in the havrekjeks, or oatcakes.

Its classic ingredients are shrimp, mussels, crabmeat, and mushrooms, but lobster tails are often included. The vegetables can vary, too, with peas sometimes replacing asparagus. Some cooks add hard-boiled eggs to the salad, either mixed in or as a garnish, and summer-ripe tomatoes can also appear. The only constant, and crucial, element is the freshness of the ingredients. When the salad has a balance of sweetness and brininess, it really sings. This recipe calls for some attention to its many different steps, but each one is simple.

aside, covered, in the refrigerator. Trim the woody ends off the asparagus spears and cut the spears into thirds crosswise. Bring a little salted water to a boil in a skillet and add the asparagus. Lower to medium-low heat and cook, covered, until just tender but still crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and immediately run under cold water to stop the cooking. Set aside, covered, in the refrigerator. Wash the lettuce and discard any blemished outer leaves. Tear into bite-size pieces. You should have about 6 loosely packed cups of lettuce. To make the vinaigrette, stir together the vinegar, mustard, and garlic in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil until an emulsion forms. Add the salt and season with pepper to taste, then stir in the dill. To make the creamy dressing, stir together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside in the refrigerator. To assemble the salad, decoratively arrange the prepared mushrooms, shrimp, mussels, crabmeat, asparagus, and lettuce on a large platter or layer them in a shallow bowl. Just before serving, pour half of the vinaigrette over the ingredients, passing the remaining vinaigrette in a small pitcher at the table. Serve with the creamy dressing in a bowl on the side.

CREAMY DRESSING ½ cup crème fraîche ½ cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon concentrated tomato paste ¼ teaspoon salt Freshly ground pepper Trim the mushrooms and cut into ¼-inch slices. Toss with the lemon juice in a bowl and set aside in the refrigerator. In a large pot, bring the water, 1⁄2 cup of the wine, and salt to a boil. Ideally, you’re using small shrimp (51/60 count per pound), so cook them for just over a minute. If using medium shrimp, adjust the cooking time accordingly—they need to cook about 2 minutes before they are done. Drain the shrimp, and when they are cool enough to handle, peel and devein them. If using medium shrimp, slice them in half lengthwise to make them bite-size. Set aside, covered, in the refrigerator. Place the mussels in a large pot with the remaining 1⁄2 cup of wine. Cover the pot, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook until the mussels open wide, 5 to 7 minutes, depending on their size. Turn off the heat and discard any mussels that didn’t open. Drain, discarding the cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, remove the mussels from their shells. You should have about 4 ounces of mussels. Set

Meanwhile, prepare the lime glaze. In a medium bowl, combine all the glaze ingredients and stir until smooth.

Gift For The World

Emerson Elementary

Mrs. Moritz’ 3rd Grade Class I want to give a gift to the world. I want to help apartments know that eveyone (everyone) that wants a pet so they can have one. So my gift to the world is to let eveyone (everyone) have a pet. Even if it includes a puppy, a dog, a hamster, a horse, a pony, a cat, a kitten, a guinea pig, a mouse, a rat, a pig, a cow, a bunny, a rabbit, I do not care, any animal thay (they) want. ~By Alexina

77 million years ago, a large, LARGE dinosaur wandered parts of planet earth. It has been named Dreadnoughtus.

Scientists think Dreadnoughtus was the largest beast ever to walk on planet earth.

Dreadnoughtus would tower over an elephant and even a T-Rex!

Dreadnoughtus was discovered by Kenneth Lacovara, PhD, of Drexel University. Because of its huge size and evidence that the long tail was used as a weapon, it was named after the massive British dreadnought battleships.

No No one o knows for sure what color the the skin s of a Dreadnoughtus might have h ha ave v been. Use your imagination and crayons to color these. a

If I could help and give all the people in the world who did not have a house I would give them one because there (are) a lot of people poor on the street I see(.) When I’m with my Dad he always gives them money and I feel bad for them so that is why I would like to give them a house. ~By Marino

St. Mary Magdalen School Mrs. Stemerick’s 3rd Grade Class

I would give everyone good health, shelter, food, happiness and clothes because everyone in the world are my brothers and sisters. I love them all. I want what is best for everyone. This would be my gift to the world. ~By Nicole If I could give the whole world a gift I would give them the gift of health. So that everyone could be healthy. Because no one likes to be sick. I know lots of people who are sick. I pray for them every night. ~By Rahel

Mrs. Houghton’s 3rd Grade Class

If I could give the world a gift it would be houses because some people don’t have houses. In winter it gets cold and people would be really cold. That is the gift I would give to the world. ~By Naicy I would give the world more trees for animals. We use wood from trees, and more trees die so animals die. They have no homes. That is what I would do. ~By Pat B.

“With a body the size of a house, the weight of a herd of elephants, and a weaponized tail, Dreadnoughtus would have feared nothing,” Lacovara said. “That evokes to me a class of turn-of-the-last century battleships called the Dreadnoughts, which were huge, thickly clad and virtually impervious.”

Hawthorne Elementary

Mrs. Jewell’s 5th Grade Class

Dreadnoughtus had a neck that was 37-feet long. They used their long neck to reach _____________ in tree tops.

The __________ of the Dreadnoughtus SLIFSOS

found in southern Argentina revealed that

They could __________ in one place and reach a wide area of trees. It wasn’t easy to _______ such a large body on land, so it would want to _______ as much as it could without moving. The long neck helped with that.

the _________________ weighed as much ARIDSONU

Cascade View

as 12 ______________.

Mrs. Craig’s 5th Grade Class


Their ________ did not weigh much, so they could lift their head!

This Dreadnoughtus was as long as two school _____________! SESUB

Scientists believe that the discovered Dreadnoughtus was still ___________ WOGRGIN

when it _________. We don’t know how DDEI

big it might have eventually become!

How many dinosaurs can you find here?


If I was going to give a gift to the world it would be a place to live. The reason I would choose this gift is because my mom’s friend needed help and people always need places to live. Another reason is that it helps the environment stay clean and not have food rappers (wrappers) on the ground. When people have to live on the street, there is a lot of littering. This is the gift I would give to the world. I would promise that the world would be safe because people will have houses. ~By Idail

On one page of the newspaper, find and circle each of the letters that spell dreadnoughtus. Connect each circled letter in order to spell the word. Color in the shape you make!


If I were to give everyone in the world a gift I would give word peace because of all the wars we had in the past, like the civil war and world war I and II. I just want to end all wars and have the world make peace with itself so we can all live free and be free forever more. ~By Weston The gift that I would give to the world is chocolate because every one likes it but some people don’t and I am fine with that. So that is why I would give the world chocolate. ~By Van Elvis

Cascade View

Mrs. Wolf’s 5th Grade Class I would give the world nutricious (nutritious) apples, yo-yos and Kit Kats. Apples are good for you. Yo-yos are fun to play with and Kit-Kats are just good. ~By Chase If I could give a gift to the whole world I would give them a house and money because some people don’t have homes and the money is for them to buy food a bed and clothes. I wish it would be true cause I want people to have a home, food and clothes. ~By Danica

Cascade View

Mr. Guthrie’s 5th Grade Class If I gave a gift to the whole world it would be blankets. Because for example homless (homeless) people (people) are verry (very) cold at night so it would be nice to give them blankets to curl up in at night. ~By Grace If I could give the hole (whole) world a gift it would be freedom because I think every body would (be) happy more often. ~By Tyler

GRANDPARENTING | Tom and Dee Hardie with Key Kidder

Grandparents and the culture of deceit Dear Grandparenting: I try to pay close attention to what the candidates for President do and say. One thing really jumps out at me. Lying is in. Being sorry about it is out. Donald lies, Hillary lies and Cruz lies. Most of them play games with the truth. Do they ever apologize or admit they lied? Very, very seldom. They just go on their merry way making stuff up about themselves and other people. That is what my grandchildren do, too. They are not sorry about not being sorry either. They sometimes lie and then blame someone else or try to change the subject. But my grandchildren are still young. There is still time for them to change. I take it on myself to try and make that happen. I insist they come clean with me. When I was growing up it was a big deal to be caught in a lie. Not anymore. Are we a nation of liars? — Scooby Murphy, Marshall, Michigan Dear Scooby: The late U.S. Sen. Daniel Moynihan said we are all entitled to our own opinions, but not our own facts. While there is

no hard evidence, we do detect a drift in society toward mixing fact with opinion, if not outright invention of fact. The conduct of presidential candidates is all the evidence one needs. When America’s would-be leaders lie and then deny or fudge it — and their supporters don’t desert them in droves — it’s safe to say we have a big problem. Lying is part of the human condition. Most of us have trouble with the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We lie to gain advantage or protect ourselves, and tell white lies to grease the wheels of social interactions. According to a 2002 University of Massachusetts study, 60 percent of adults cannot have a 10-minute conversation without lying at least once (the average was three lies). What does this have to with grandchildren? Lying and not apologizing are contagious. Overhearing adults disparage the truthfulness of America’s leaders is sure to put ideas on their little heads — if it’s good enough for Donald or Hillary, why not me?

Small children model what they observe. Not that they really need much encouragement — a 2013 study in Developmental Psychology indicates that children become increasingly capable liars from age 3½ onward. Family is the best defense against grandchildren inclined to only offer up their version of the truth. In the family circle, they learn that it’s safe to tell the whole truth. Grandparents who build a relationship of closeness and trust with grandchildren give them a bridge over the low road of deceit. Grand remark of the week Natalie Chang from Los Angeles says she knows where her grandchildren get all their energy. “They suck it right out of me and rev their little engines right up again.” Dee and Tom, married more than 50 years, have eight grandchildren.

Woman still angry at family for ignoring trauma Dear Abby: At the age of 15 I was raped by my first boyfriend. It’s how I lost my virginity. Shortly afterward, I became severely depressed and bulimic. I blocked my trauma until 11 years later, when I had a flashback. I sought out a therapist and have been seeing him for the past six months. I feel so much resentment and anger toward my family for not having helped me through this difficult time. They didn’t know about the rape, but they knew about my eating disorder, and I’m sure they must have noticed my depressed mood. They simply looked the other way, and I was offered no help whatsoever. I am angry with my mother especially, because she has always been detached and critical of me. I’m afraid to tell her what happened for fear of being blamed. She has now been diagnosed with cancer, and I’m afraid she’ll die before I get the courage to tell her. What can I do? — Angry In California Dear Angry: It might be helpful to look more carefully at the reasons why you are angry with your family. It’s unfair to blame them for not recognizing something they were never told. It is not uncommon for teenagers to withdraw to some extent in order to establish their own identities, apart from their parents. Your parents may have thought that was what you were doing. This is not to excuse your mother for her inability to be the parent you needed while growing up. It’s important that you work with your therapist on how to talk to her about all of your feelings. It shouldn’t be done in an accusatory manner, and you should have no fear of being blamed for your rape. It wasn’t your fault that you RIP HAYWIRE

Dear Abby: “Julia” was my best friend in high school and my maid of honor when I got married. She and her husband have an open relationship and invite other women into their bedroom. Several years ago, when my husband and I were struggling, they asked me if I wanted to join them. I declined in favor of working on my marriage. After that, Julia and I drifted apart and we spoke only rarely. Our children go to the same school now, so we have reconnected and I realize how much I have missed having her as a close friend. Recently, however, Julia’s husband, “Jerry,” has started making suggestive remarks. How do I ask this man to stop without losing Julia’s friendship again? — Not Interested That Way Dear Not Interested: Tell Jerry that his comments are making you uncomfortable and to cut it out. Point out that while you and your husband are not judgmental about their lifestyle, you are not interested in being more than good platonic friends. Then repeat it to Julia, so she hears it straight from you. If, after that, your refusal to participate in their bedroom antics causes “bitterness,” then so be it.

‘Idol’ swan song begins tonight

Wednesday’s highlights on TV include: The swan song for “American Idol” begins, as the reality series that gave us Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phillips and more kicks off its 15th and final season. First up: The audition rounds. 8 p.m., Fox. More than 72 million votes were cast for tonight’s People’s Choice Awards. We’re guessing that Taylor Swift probably got a few of them. 9 p.m., CBS.

Stigwood was Bee Gees’ manager LONDON — Robert Stigwood, the impresario who managed the Bee Gees and produced 1970s blockbusters “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever,” died Monday. He was 81. In the 1960s he managed rock super group Cream and its guitarist Eric Clapton before signing brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, collectively known as the Bee Gees, whose melodic folkrock achieved late-’60s success before a career slump.

It started on June 11, 2002, with a couple of unfamiliar hosts posing in an empty theater and making an overblown declaration to TV viewers. “Live on this stage, an unknown talent will be launched into superstardom,” said Brian Dunkleman. “You at home decide who will become the next American idol,” intoned Ryan Seacrest. The reasonable reaction: uh-huh, sure. But it turned out the two were underselling Fox’s “American Idol.” The singing contest, which begins its 15th and final season Wednesday, was a blockbuster that invigorated its network. It made stars of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and others, and resurrected the TV talent show as a boom industry that includes NBC’s “The Voice” and ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” “It not only was a huge success for Fox but impacted everyone else,” said Bill Carroll, media analyst with Katz Television Group. “It once again underscored the fact that broadcast television is communal and an event.” “American Idol,” from megaproducer Simon Fuller and based on his British hit “Pop Idol,” did even more. It breathed life into the music industry as it and network TV both grappled with technology-driven changes in consumer habits. The show’s end is the result of dwindling ratings, the inevitable fate of even durable performers. “Idol,”


Carrie Underwood, seen here at the 2007 Grammy Awards, rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of “American Idol” in 2005. The singing competition series also launched the careers of Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson.

which averaged more than 30 million weekly viewers at its 2006 peak and ranked No. 1 for nine consecutive years, averaged about 11 million last season (still enough by today’s standards to land it in the top 20, but with fewer advertiserfavored younger viewers). Whatever its change in fortunes, the series will get a send-off worthy of a television landmark, said executive producer Trish Kinane. As she sees it, that means paying tribute to its past while focusing on the battle among this year’s contestants to become the last “Idol” winner. “It’s that tricky thing of, ‘Hey, it’s the 15th season, let’s do nostalgia, let’s look back at the show’s really

rich history,”’ Kinane said. “But on the other hand, you’ve got to find an amazing American Idol. So we’re trying to combine both of those things.” To accomplish that “organically,” she said, past winners and familiar runners-up will be sprinkled throughout the season, starting with the open auditions in which Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken, Taylor Hicks and others were on hand to share tips with the hopefuls. Plans also call for duets pairing contestants with their now-famous predecessors, who “all want to be involved, somehow,” Kinane said. The season debut is a four-hour, two-night affair, airing from 8-10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday

Today is Wednesday, Jan. 6, the sixth day of 2016. There are 360 days left in the year. Today’s highlight: On Jan. 6, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in his State of the Union address, outlined a goal of “Four Freedoms”: Freedom of speech and expression; the freedom of people to worship God in their own way; freedom from want; freedom from fear. On this date: In 1540, England’s King Henry VIII married his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves. (The marriage lasted about six months.) In 1759, George Washington and Martha Dandridge Custis were married in New Kent County, Virginia. In 1919, the 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, died in Oyster Bay, New York, at age 60. In 1945, George Herbert Walker Bush married Barbara Pierce at the First Presbyterian Church in Rye, New York. In 1963, “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” premiered on NBC-TV. In 1974, year-round daylight saving time began in the United States on a trial basis as a fuel-saving measure in response to the OPEC oil embargo. In 1994, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed on the leg by an assailant at Detroit’s Cobo Arena; four men, including the ex-husband of Kerrigan’s rival, Tonya Harding, went to prison for their roles in the attack.

and opening on a retrospective note with the Seacrest-Dunkleman ‘02 clip. One contestant featured in the premiere demonstrates the show’s impressive hold on its fans. Michelle Marie Lecza of Daytona Beach, Florida, recalls watching it as a 4-year-old and can recite all of the winners, in order. “‘American Idol’ is what I based my life off of. I am going to walk into the audition room and go get my dream,” the braceswearing 15-year-old says. Such fervor made “American Idol” a welltimed hit. With social media gaining steam, viewers wanted to get in on the real-time conversation about “Idol” — good news for networks selling commercial airtime and the sponsors who wanted their ads to be seen, not skipped as the show was replayed on a DVR. The live “Idol” episodes increased that appetite and launched the networks’ embrace of a variety of other live broadcasts that included NBC’s musicals “The Sound of Music” and “The Wiz.” It would be ideal if the final season produces another “American Idol” pop superstar, judge Harry Connick Jr. said. The show “has had a lot of hits, had a lot of misses. I would love to see somebody come out and put a bookend on what Kelly Clarkson did the first year, which is to sell a ton of records, sell a lot of concert tickets and became a household name,” the jazz musician said. “That would be a great way to end it,” he said.

Griffey Jr., Martinez learn Hall of Fame fate today Ken Griffey Jr. is expected to be a shoo-in, while Edgar Martinez is hoping for a sign he is gaining support when the voting results are announced this afternoon. By Bob Dutton The News Tribune

SEATTLE — The wait is almost over for Ken Griffey Jr., while Edgar Martinez is seeking a sign that his ongoing wait might yet produce a happy ending. The Baseball Hall of Fame will announce the results of its 2016 balloting at 3 p.m. Wednesday on

The announcement Results of the 2016 Hall of Fame balloting will be revealed at 3 p.m. Wednesday. The announcement will be broadcast on MLB Network and streamed live on

MLB Network. The announcement also will be streamed live by Griffey, 46, is in his first year of eligibility in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America but is viewed as a shoo-in to reach the required 75-percent threshold for election. As such, Griffey would become

the first player elected to the Hall of Fame in recognition largely for achievements while playing for the Seattle Mariners. He spent 13

of his 22 big-league seasons with the club. Former Mariners ace Randy Johnson was elected last year, but his Hall of Fame plaque depicts him in an Arizona Diamondbacks cap. Like most of the 32 candidates on this year’s ballot, Griffey kept a low profile during the balloting process, which ran from Nov. 9 to Dec. 24. “I played baseball because I loved it,” Griffey once said regarding post-career honors. “It wasn’t to get an award. It’s because I wanted to go out there each and every day and play as hard as I

can. It’s something I loved to do.” The voting panel consists of 10-year members of the BBWAA, and it was trimmed this year to include only those who have actively covered baseball within the past 10 years. Election requires a candidate be cited on at least 75 percent of the returned ballots. Roughly 450 returned ballots are anticipated. Players must have played at least 10 years and be retired for five years to be eligible for the ballot. Those who receive at least See FAME, Page C2

Derek Anyimah sparks Mountlake Terrace en route to 51-48 win over Glacier Peak. By Rich Myhre Herald Writer


Wrestlers on seperate mats square off during a double dual between Lynnwood, Edmonds-Woodway, Mountlake Terrace and Meadowdale at Lynnwood High School on Tuesday. The prevalence of double duals has increased in each of the past three seasons.

By Brian Adamowsky Herald Writer

Most wrestling coaches agree that the best way for high school athletes to improve quickly is to wrestle as many competitive matches as possible. By competing, wrestlers can test what they’ve been taught in the practice room and be placed in different situations by their opponents, and how they respond can be a test of that growth. It follows that coaches would like to give their wrestlers the greatest number of opportunities to improve as possible, while working within the framework of Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) guidelines. The WIAA limits regular-season team outings for wrestlers to 16 and individual matches to 45. The outings limit has been in place for nearly 25 years, but the match limit was raised in the

To dual or

not to dual For better or worse, the prevalence of double duals in Washington high school wrestling is on the rise

spring of 2014. It is up to the individual coaches to decide how to structure their schedules to get those matches. They can wrestle dual matches (one team against another), double duals (four teams at a site, with two concurrent dual matches for each) or

even triple duals (six teams at a site and three duals for each). Teams also can attend individual tournaments on weekends, which simulate the modified double-elimination environment of Mat Classic, the annual state championships held each February in Tacoma.

There also has been an increasing prevalence of dual meet tournaments, where whole teams compete against each other over the course of a day (or two) to produce a winner. Some coaches say the dual meet tournaments represent the best of both worlds, since they allow all 14 of their wrestlers to get multiple matches in an outing regardless if they win or lose. “I have a very young team, and if we went to a lot of individual tournaments, most of my kids would lose two matches and sit around for most of the day,” said Stanwood coach Ray Mather, who came to Washington from Nebraska, where there are no match limits for high school wrestlers. Some coaches say individual tournaments are geared toward the more elite athletes, and while the events do give those wrestlers a chance to compete See WRESTLING, Page C5

SNOHOMISH — After a spirited but low-scoring first half, the Mountlake Terrace boys basketball team finally kindled its offense in the second half on Tuesday night. It was forward Derek Anyimah that provided the spark. Anyimah, a 6-foot-3 senior, scored 14 of his game-high 19 points in the third and fourth quarters to help the Hawks turn a 16-15 halftime deficit into a 51-48 victory over Glacier Peak. The outcome improves Mountlake Terrace to 3-0 in the Wesco 3A South. Midway through the third period and with the Grizzlies still leading by one, Anyimah scored with a layin that would, as it turned out, put Mountlake Terrace on top to stay. Moments later he scored with a fast-break layin, and those two baskets keyed a 17-6 Hawks flurry into the early fourth quarter. It was a run that See HAWKS, Page C5

Carroll admits Super Bowl hangover from it,” Carroll said Monday, the start of preparations for the sixthseeded Seahawks (10-6) opening their NFC playoffs Sunday at third-seeded and NFC Northchampion Minnesota (11-5). “We had to get through (it) to the finish to the season.

We made it. “But it had an impact.” Carroll says now the players’ and coaches’ reactions to coming so close but not winning a second consecutive Super Bowl were natural.

Barry Bonds, shown watching batting practice before a game between the Phillies and Giants in San Francisco in July of 2015, is on track for a 5-10 percentage point increase in the Hall of Fame balloting, from about 37 percent of the ballots last year to about 48 percent this year, according to

Voting changes could help Bonds, Clemens in Hall of Fame balloting By Ronald Blum Associated Press

NEW YORK — Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and other tainted stars of the Steroids Era appear likely to get a boost in Hall of Fame balloting, but not enough to enter Cooperstown this year. Ken Griffey Jr. seems assured of election on his first try Wednesday, possibly with a record vote of close to 100 percent. Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines also were strong candidates to gain the 75 percent needed for baseball’s highest honor. Following the elimination of about 100 retired baseball writers from the electorate, Bonds and Clemens were on track for a 5-10 percentage point increase. After drawing about 37 percent of the ballots last year, they were in the 48 percent range this year according to www.bbhoftracker. com, which tabulated public votes adding to more than onethird of the total. Last July, the Hall’s board of directors cut eligible voters from

approximately 575 to roughly 475 by purging writers who had not been covering the game for more than a decade. Previously, the electorate included people who had been active members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America for 10 consecutive years at any point. “We have a somewhat different electorate,” John Thorn, Major League Baseball’s official historian, said Tuesday. “I think possibly the current electorate was not content to keep kicking the PED crowd down into a hole and leaving the Hall of Fame with a crater in its plaque room.” Marc Maturo, a reporter covering New York baseball for Gannett in the 1970s and 1980s, was among those who lost voting rights. He said he would have voted for Bonds, Clemens, Griffey and Raines. “The whole process I think was done too quickly, wasn’t given enough thought,” he said. Now a writer for the weekly Rockland County Times, Maturo pointed out players who received one or two votes in recent years,

such as Armando Benitez, Aaron Boone, Bret Boone, Darin Erstad, Kenny Rogers, J.T. Snow and B.J. Surhoff. “They call these courtesy votes or friendship votes,” he said, “That should eliminate you. They’re not Hall of Famers by anyone’s imagination. But people vote for them. To me, that’s wrong.” A 13-time All-Star who is sixth with 630 homers, Griffey was a lock to be inducted at Cooperstown on July 24. The former Cincinnati and Seattle star appeared on all 166 ballots counted by bbhoftracker and could challenge the record of 98.84 percent set by Tom Seaver when he was picked by 425 of 430 voters in 1992. Piazza was at about 87 percent in his fourth appearance after falling short by 28 votes last year, when Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio became the first quartet elected by the BBWAA in one year since 1955. Bagwell was third at 80 percent in his sixth appearance, followed by Raines at 78 percent

in his ninth. Last year, the actual percentage was about 5 percent under the pre-announcement figure on the vote-tracker. Bonds, the only seven-time MVP, and Clemens, the only seven-time Cy Young Award winner, are both making their fourth appearance and are eligible for up to six more years. Reliever Trevor Hoffman, on the ballot for the first time, was at 62 percent on the vote-tracker and seemed likely to fall short. Mark McGwire, one of the first big stars to admit using steroids, was at 13 percent in his final ballot appearance — nearly half his peak of 23.6 percent in 2008. Alan Trammell, also on for the last time, was at 47 percent. Sammy Sosa was at 8 percent in his fourth attempt. Following the board’s decision not to accept the BBWAA’s recommendation that voters be allowed to select up to 12 candidates rather than 10, next year’s ballot could force more tough decisions. Manny Ramirez, Ivan Rodriguez, Vladimir Guerrero and Magglio Ordonez are eligible for the first time.

percent, there are indications he could be poised this year for a major jump in support. Roughly one-third of the BBWAA’s voting members have revealed their ballots, and a running tabulation by Ryan Thibodaux showed Martinez at 46.2 percent as of Tuesday. Such a jump could position Martinez to make a serious push for election in his three remaining years of eligibility. “If you’re talking about putting the best players in the Hall of Fame,” former teammate Mike Cameron said this week on MLB Radio, “this is one of your best players.” Thibs’ running count showed Griffey cited on every revealed ballot. The highest percentage ever received in BBWAA balloting was 98.8 by pitcher Tom Seaver in 1992. Revealed ballots also had

Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines tracking above the 75-percent threshold. They were the three top vote-getters last year who failed to gain election. Reliever Trevor Hoffman ranked second to Griffey among the 15 first-time candidates at 62.6 percent of the revealed votes. The only sure thing, it appears, is Griffey. Anyone elected Wednesday will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame in a July 24 ceremony in Cooperstown, N.Y. “When we were in Seattle together,” former Mariners manager Lou Piniella once said, “I believe he was the best player in baseball and it was truly an honor to be his manager.” Griffey played for the Mariners from 1989-99 before a trade sent him to the Cincinnati Reds. He spent eight-plus seasons in

Cincinnati and part of one year with the Chicago White Sox before returning to the Mariners. Of his 630 career homers, Griffey hit 417 while playing for the Mariners. He also made 10 of his 13 All-Star appearances as a Mariner and was picked in 1997 as the American League’s Most Valuable Player. The Mariners, in 2013, inducted Griffey into their Hall of Fame. “I tell them Jay (Buhner) and Edgar were the heart and soul of (those teams),” Griffey said at the time. “I was just the pretty face.” The numbers say otherwise ... and Griffey’s appeal always extended beyond the numbers. “I mean, he was Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, he was Ted Williams,” former teammate Harold Reynolds said. “He meant as much to baseball as

5 percent of the vote remain on the ballot. They can remain on the ballot for a maximum of 10 years. Martinez, 53, was Griffey’s long-time teammate, and he spent his entire 18-year career with the Mariners. An All-Star in seven seasons, he is in his seventh year on the Hall of Fame ballot. “I’m a little encouraged that it went up a little bit (over the previous year),” Martinez said last year after receiving 27 percent, “but I knew it was going to be very difficult.” It remains difficult, but there are hopeful signs. While Martinez has never topped 36.5

Serena Williams withdraws from Hopman Cup match in Australia Associated Press BRISBANE, Australia — Topranked Serena Williams retired during the second set of her Hopman Cup tennis match in Perth on Tuesday, culminating a day of injuries and upsets for the leading players on the women’s tour less than two week from the Australian Open. Williams, who missed the U.S. team’s opening loss to Ukraine on Monday because of inflammation in her left knee, was trailing 7-5, 2-1 against Jarmila

Wolfe when she left the court. Australia now has a 1-0 lead ahead of the men’s singles in a Group A match at the international mixed team tournament. Ukraine improved to 2-0 in the group with a win over Czech Republic. Earlier, defending champion Maria Sharapova and top-seeded Simona Halep withdrew from the Brisbane International with injuries within an hour of each other, without playing a match. At the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand, defending champion

Venus Williams and 2014 winner Ana Ivanovic were ousted in first-round upsets. No. 4-ranked Sharapova was scheduled to play fellow Russian Ekaterina Makarova but withdrew hours before the firstround match rather than risk further damage to a sore left forearm ahead of the first Grand Slam tournament of the season. The five-time major winner said she’d hurt her forearm in practice and had to withdraw as a precaution. Her place in the draw was taken by Margarita

Gasparyan, who lost to Makarova. Halep had a first-round bye and withdrew a day ahead of her scheduled opening match against Victoria Azarenka because of a problem with her left Achilles tendon. “I wanted to play here. This injury is very difficult,” Halep said. Halep said she hoped to play at the Sydney International next week. Sharapova is heading directly to Melbourne to prepare for the Australian Open, which starts Jan. 18.

Seahawks-Vikings game could be one of coldest in NFL history Herald news services It’s going to be cold on Sunday for the Seattle Seahawks’ playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Really cold. The updated forecast on Tuesday for Minneapolis on Sunday calls for a high temperature of zero, a low of minus 11 and a wind chill of minus 25. The forecast high of zero degrees would make it the coldest home playoff game in Minnesota team history, the coldest game in the Seahawks’ 40-year history and among the frostiest in NFL history. There have been only nine games in league history where the high temperature during the game never got above zero. The Vikings’ coldest playoff game at old

Metropolitan Stadium was 9 degrees in 1970 against Chicago. The Vikings’ coldest game, minus 2 against Chicago in 1972, was the sixth most frigid in NFL history. The Seahawks say the coldest game they’ve ever played was 16 degrees on Dec. 3, 2006, a 23-20 night win at Denver. The coldest they’ve been recently was last season, Nov. 16, 2014, a 21-degree day at Kansas City with a wind chill of 10. The Vikings are in the final weeks of playing outside at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium. The on-campus venue across the Mississippi River from downtown Minneapolis is the Vikings’ temporary home between the demolition of their old Metrodome downtown and the construction of Minnesota’s new, domed U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings’ coldest home game in their

They were also time-consuming. The Seahawks started this most uneven of seasons 0-2, 2-4 and 4-5. “That’s just a microcosm of life. You have to deal with stuff and then you move ahead,” Carroll said. “You have to deal with it properly, and put it in the right place, and then get on. It just took us some time. I think we had some hangover from it. “Look at the history of the teams coming out of the Super Bowl. How well are they doing the next year? It’s a most challenging event to endure for a program, and staff, and players, and fans, and all of that. “I’m proud to say we’re still fighting. And here we go again. We’ll see what happens.” There were other factors, of course, to the Seahawks’ poor start before this now-customary December rush into a fourth consecutive postseason. Strong safety Kam Chancellor’s holdout dragged on through the season’s first two games. Those were losses at St. Louis — when his replacement, thenreleased Dion Bailey, fell down in coverage in the final seconds to allow the tying touchdown — and at Green Bay. The offensive line had starters in three new positions, including a former undrafted college defensive tackle, Drew Nowak, making his NFL debut at center to replace traded, twotime Pro Bowler Max Unger. Nowak eventually got benched after five games. His replacement, Patrick Lewis, has been a revelation. Russell Wilson got sacked a league-high 31 times in the first seven games behind that line, and looked spooked by attempting to stand in a pocket that kept collapsing on him. Over the last half of the season, after Lewis entered to recognize defenses and make protection calls, the pocket has mostly been trusty. Wilson became the first player in NFL history with 4,000 yards passing, 500 yards rushing and at least 30 touchdown passes in a season. But until now, Carroll had dismissed the talk of a Super Bowl “hangover” as a figment of imaginations belonging to those outside team headquarters. He blew off the notion as recently as Dec. 13, when he was asked about it by an East Coast writer during his postgame press conference following the win at Baltimore. “That’s the furthest things on our minds right now,” Carroll said that day. “It has nothing to do with nothing.”

temporary stadium was Nov. 30, 2014, when it was 12 degrees. Sunday’s game could be the coldest Vikings home game in 44 years. It was zero degrees with a wind chill of minus 18 on Dec. 10, 1972, at Metropolitan Stadium when Minnesota hosted Green Bay. The coldest NFL game was the “Ice Bowl,” the league’s title game between Green Bay and Dallas at Lambeau Field on New Year’s Eve in 1967. The temperature was minus 13 and wind chills hit minus 48. NBC broadcaster Cris Collinsworth, who will be calling Sunday’s game, likes to refer to the coldest game by windchill in league history. Collinsworth played for the Bengals when they beat San Diego on Jan. 10, 1982 at Riverfront Stadium for the AFC title when the temperature was minus 9 and wind chills hit minus 59.

Panthers fans urged to root for Vikings By Scott Fowler The News & Observer


ive thoughts on the 15-1 Carolina Panthers and the upcoming playoffs: 1. Think you’ve got a Sunday off, Panthers fans? Think again. It’s time for you to re-familiarize yourself with Teddy Bridgewater, Adrian Peterson, Captain Munnerlyn and the younger Kalil brother. Because on Sunday afternoon, you should be rooting hard for the Minnesota Vikings to beat Seattle. If the Seahawks win — and although seeded lower and on the road, they are favored over the Vikings by nearly a touchdown — they come to Charlotte to play Carolina on Jan. 17 at 10:05 a.m. PST. If the Vikings win, Carolina will instead play Sunday’s Green Bay-Washington winner in that game. The Panthers have beaten all three of the possible opponents in their first playoff game, but they had the most difficult time with Seattle. To play the NFC team that has been to back-to-back Super Bowls isn’t much of a reward for a 15-1 Carolina team that was the class of the NFL’s regular season. I think the Panthers and Seattle are actually the two best teams in the NFC right now. But with the way the seedings have shaken out, it is impossible for them to meet in the NFC Championship Game (which will kick off at 3:40 p.m. PST in Charlotte on Jan. 24 if Carolina can win its first game). We’re either going to get Cam NewtonRussell Wilson on Jan. 17 — Wilson is 4-1 in those matchups, but lost the last one — or we won’t get that game until the 2016 regular season, when the Panthers will travel to

Seattle yet again. 2. What Seattle reminds me of is the San Francisco team that came to Charlotte after the 2013 season. The Panthers, remember, had gone to San Francisco and beaten the 49ers in the regular season, just like they did with Seattle this year. But the 49ers, only a No. 5 seed, were extremely hot by then and they whipped No. 2 seed Carolina 23-10 in Charlotte. I’m not saying the Panthers will lose if their opponent does turn out to be sixth-seeded Seattle. These Panthers are better than that 2013 squad, and I don’t expect they will lose their poise as Carolina did in that playoff game against the 49ers. But it’s definitely a tougher road. 3. The Panthers’ 15-1 record means a couple of things. This team played the best regular season in Carolina history. And it is the most purely talented team in Carolina history — a franchise-high 10 Pro Bowlers and the likely NFL MVP in Newton all speak to that. But is it actually the best team? We have to see the playoff games before making that judgment. Certainly, the players from the 2003 Panthers squad that nearly won the Super Bowl against New England might argue that. Stephen Davis, who ran for 1,444 yards for that 2003 team, was in the Panther’ locker room Sunday after Carolina’s 38-10 victory over Tampa Bay. “This remind you of the ’03 team?” I asked him. “This team may be better,” Davis said. “Really?” I said. “Nah,” he laughed. 4. The Panthers are getting very thin at cornerback, enough so that they may

be starting a player in Robert McClain who wasn’t even on the team until midDecember. Two of the Panthers’ top three cornerbacks (Charles Tillman and Bene Benwikere) have suffered season-ending injuries. Cornerback is a dangerous place to be short-staffed, and you better believe that either Wilson, Aaron Rodgers or Kirk Cousins is going to favor McClain’s side of the field on Jan. 17. The Panthers are going to have to compensate by often rolling a safety to McClain’s side, which means Josh Norman will be on his own little island a lot of the time. 5. Speaking of Norman, let’s review how many high-profile players he has gotten to temporarily lose their minds this season. He showboated on an interception return in training camp and ended up in a fight with Newton. He embedded himself so deeply into Odell Beckham’s head that the NFL later said Beckham should have been thrown out of the game and instead suspended him for the next one. And then Norman helped Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans along the way to two consecutive unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and an ejection on Sunday. What’s next for Norman? The playoffs and a whole lot of money, certainly. But the Panthers absolutely can’t afford to lose him as an unrestricted free agent. I would pay the man, for sure. But if you absolutely can’t come to terms with Norman, you have to use the franchise tag on him by March 1. No way can the Panthers let a player of Norman’s caliber get away with no compensation.

Note Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks’ cornerstone running back, is coming back this week after not playing since Nov. 15 against Arizona and then abdominal surgery Nov. 25. Lynch was scheduled to work out again Tuesday at team headquarters after rejoining the Seahawks there on Monday. He had been in his native Bay Area rehabilitating with his personal trainers in a San Francisco gym from the first week of December through last weekend. Carroll said Lynch will practice Wednesday, and that will give the team the read on how gameready he is for his expected start Sunday against the Vikings.

COMMENTARY | College basketball

Celebration of college basketball Monday’s Kansas-Oklahoma triple-overtime contest was one of the greatest college basketball games ever played By Sam Mellinger The Kansas City Star


AWRENCE, Kan. — The wildest, fastest, longest, craziest game anyone seemed able to remember left heads shaking and eardrums ringing and a player from the losing team as the unquestioned star of the night, and, actually, it feels a little strange to type that anyone lost. By the time it was over, No. 1 Kansas had beaten No. 2 Oklahoma 109-106 after three overtimes in a night Dick Vitale had declared the loudest game he’d attended in 37 years as the voice of this sport. What started as a game ended as a celebration of what college basketball can be. OU coach Lon Kruger has been in the sport more than four decades and could not remember a better game in his lifetime. KU coach Bill Self gave it the highest compliment possible, calling it the best regular season game he’d ever been a part of, even better than the last bloodwar against Missouri. And Buddy Hield, who conjured names like Kevin Durant and Randy Rutherford and Anthony Peeler in one of the all-time best performances by a visiting player in 60 years of Allen Fieldhouse, walked off the court in his socks to a standing ovation from KU fans. He said he needed a bed. “We actually did a really good job holding him to 46 (points),” Self said. There is no superlative that feels too big for an epic night shared by another soldout crowd and what was surely a growing television audience as word spread around the country of the magic happening in this old limestone barn. “Craziest game I’ve ever been a part of,” said KU guard Frank Mason. If this isn’t the best college basketball game of the year, we are in for one hell of a season. It is probably the best regular season game in the history of the Big 12, and one of the most entertaining anywhere in the country in recent memory. It brought to mind the SyracuseUConn six overtime game, always the mark of a classic. The last time a No. 1 vs. No. 2 game went into triple overtime, Wilt Chamberlain was playing for KU, and it was the 1957 national championship game against North Carolina. The way this one played out, it’s entirely plausible that both teams will and should keep their ranking. They played 55 minutes of beautiful basketball over three hours on a cold winter night. They took 182 shots, made nearly half their 3-pointers, committed but 30 turnovers and saw only one player foul out despite hounding defense. This game had the brute force of bodies slamming to the floor, hard enough you could feel the impact on your feet sitting courtside, but also the delicate ballet of a Jordan Woodard pass thrown perfectly through a swarm of sprinting bodies, Mason spinning 360 degrees before tossing an alley-oop to Wayne Selden, and Hield putting on one of the great performances you will ever see in college basketball. After all of that, KU won in the final seconds of the third overtime, on one of the sport’s simplest plays — an inbound


Kansas’ Jamari Traylor (31) and Evan Manning leap into the air as Frank Mason III (0) and Wayne Selden Jr. (1) celebrate following the No. 1 Jayhawks’ 109-106 3OT victory over No. 2 Oklahoma in Lawrence, Kan., on Monday.

pass. Oklahoma trailed by one with 12 seconds left, plenty of time to set up a good shot on a night when even bad shots were going in. Hield, with the ball, was standing in front of the scorer’s table, a particularly cramped space between the padding around the advertisement boards and the sideline. Depending on exactly where the table is set, a player has the width of 10 wooden boards to stand and find his angle. A crude measurement after the game showed it to be two feet, and probably less. Mason listened to the referee tell him to give Hield space. Then, Mason ignored the man. When the referee handed Hield the ball, Mason took a step closer, bothering the OU star. Hield would later say he misread the movement of teammate Isaiah Cousins, picking the wrong angle for the pass. Either way, Mason tipped it away, ran down the deflection, drew a foul and hit two free throws. “A ridiculous play,” Self said. It was easy to wonder if Mason had violated a rule by breaking the plane of the sideline, but Hield did not complain. Kruger was a few feet from the play, and said he didn’t have a problem with it. This is one of those tiny advantages that coaches seek and exploit. Particularly at KU, with sideline space so cramped, players are instructed to exaggerate their pressure on the in-bounder. If anything, the referee might stop and make the defender move back, but even that is extremely rare. “That’s something we talk about as a team,” Mason said. “It so happened to work right there at the end.”

That was one play out of a thousand, and when they replay this game on television we’ll all remember the other plays that could’ve decided this one. Mason got to the rim at the end of regulation, but didn’t get what looked like a clear foul. Then Khadeem Lattin missed a free throw with 2 seconds left. Overtime. Perry Ellis airballed a good look with 2 seconds left, and Selden missed a wide open 3-pointer at the buzzer. Now double overtime. Both teams missed their last four shots in the second overtime. Now triple overtime. “We both had chances to win,” Hield said. “Both teams.” For what seemed like the end of regulation and all of overtime, neither team ran any plays as much as they called sets to let their best guys make plays. Hield spent much of the game stationed in the right corner, sometimes patting his coach on the chest as he jogged by, like, I got this. He was surgical with his performance, needing only 23 shots from the field for his 46 points, many of them punctuated with a growing exasperation from the public address announcer. Self said he knew this was one of the best games of his career with a few minutes left in regulation, when he looked down the benches and saw so many smiles. He presented it as a showcase for the Big 12, which appears to be the best league in the country this season, but it will be seen by many as an advertisement for the sport. By the end, everyone was tired. The sweat stains on the jerseys grew longer and wider through the overtimes, and the missed shots and airballs late

stand as proof of tired legs. Most of the fans stood for the last 20 minutes or so of action, even in the big money donor seats, and enough energy was spent cheering this game that some students leaned against each other and wiped their foreheads during timeouts. There are basketball implications you can take from this, if you want. This will likely be KU’s toughest Big 12 title defense yet. The conference has at least two, and maybe three (Iowa State?) legitimate national title contenders. Hield is already one of the league’s best all-time players. KU is deep, and quite possibly the best team in the country, but lack a shutdown perimeter defender and their classic scoring strength inside. Cheick Diallo’s development is a story that will hang all season. But all of that stuff is for another day. This was one of those rare moments in sports when a game is hyped, and exceeds it, one of those nights that fans and even players and coaches on the losing team will be proud to have been a part of. It was just an early January, regular season, college basketball game, but somehow it felt like so much more than that. “It’s too early,” Self said with a chuckle. “January 4 is too early to be playing a game like this.” After the last question was asked, Mason got up slowly from his chair and started to walk toward the locker room. He stopped near a tray full of burritos wrapped in foil. He had to be hungry. He looked at a school administrator, looked down at the burritos, and then back up. “Go ahead,” the man said. “After that, you can take the whole thing.”

Sounders FC Academy alum Morris won’t play senior season at Stanford By Don Ruiz The News Tribune

Sounders FC Academy alum Jordan Morris will forgo his senior season at Stanford to begin his professional career. Morris made the announcement Tuesday. However the question of where he will begin his pro career remains. Meanwhile, Werder Bremen of the German Bundesliga

confirmed that Morris will train there “for a few days” later this month. “It’s a good opportunity to meet a player closer to us,” Werder Bremen managing director Thomas Gauge said. “Nothing more, nothing less.” Morris is a Mercer Island native and U.S. national team forward who was a member of the Sounders Academy Class of 2013. Sounders general manager

Garth Lagerwey has said the club has made a historic homegrown contact offer and he hopes Morris will begin his pro career in Seattle. Meanwhile, it also was revealed that second-year Sounders midfielder Aaron Kovar is training with Preston North End of the English Championship, much as he did about this time last year with Sheffield Wednesday. He is expected back

in time for the start of Sounders training Jan. 22. “Aaron is a talented young player, and these types of experiences are always positive for development and fitness purposes,” Lagerwey said in a statement from the club. “We’re hopeful that his time in England will be beneficial, allowing Aaron to hit the ground running in training camp with us in Seattle in a few weeks.”

Less practice time not an issue for Clemson By Matt Connolly The State

CLEMSON, S.C. — Beginning Wednesday, Clemson will have less practice and meeting time than Alabama as both teams prepare for the National Championship Game, but coach Dabo Swinney said having to adhere to the 20-hour rule will have no effect on Monday’s game. Clemson begins the spring semester on Wednesday and is limited to a maximum of four hours of meeting/practice time per day. Alabama’s spring semester doesn’t start until Jan. 13, so the Crimson Tide can practice and meet as much as they like. “People make a big deal out of that,” Swinney said. “First of all, Wednesday and Thursday they’ve got a little bit more time. Maybe they can have an extra meeting, something like that. Maybe they can do a walk-through in the morning and maybe a little extra film session. But I think at this point, to be honest with you, more isn’t better. I kind of believe in the less is more.” Swinney pointed out that the Tigers will not have class Friday, and Clemson and Alabama will have the same schedule leading up to the game once they arrive in Arizona on Friday. As for Wednesday and Thursday, he does not believe that it will hurt Clemson’s preparations. “It’s all the same Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. That’s all the same,” Swinney said. “Our guys, they’re used to going to school anyway. That’s what they do. ... They haven’t had any problem balancing that type of stuff, so I wouldn’t make a big deal out of that. If they beat us, it’s not going to be because they had two extra meetings or an extra walk-through on Wednesday and Thursday. It’s going to be because they just beat us.” Clemson’s players agreed that the rule is not an excuse, but also said it doesn’t make sense for one team to have more practice time than another. “I don’t know if it’s fair or not, but life’s not fair. That’s just how it worked out,” defensive tackle D.J. Reader said. “I think we’re pretty excited to just get after it with 20 hours or whatever, but we’ll put our extra time in individually. We won’t back off of it because we don’t have enough time. We’ll get enough time to be ready to play.” Tigers linebacker Ben Boulware said he would not be surprised to see a change in the rule. “I don’t really care. That’s the hand we’ve been dealt, and we’ve got to deal with it,” the junior said. “They’ll probably change it in the next couple of years when they figure out it’s unfair, but we can’t do anything about it this year.”

Ex-Texas A&M QB Allen to enroll at Houston Associated Press HOUSTON — Kyle Allen didn’t go far after leaving Texas A&M. The highly touted quarterback is enrolling at Houston, where the 14th-ranked Cougars just wrapped up a 13-1 season under first-year coach Tom Herman. Allen spent two seasons with the Aggies, who have also seen quarterback Kyler Murray transfer and offensive coordinator Jake Spavital depart in recent weeks. Allen will sit out next year under NCAA transfer rules but will have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in 2017. Allen started the first seven games this past season before struggling with interceptions and was benched after a loss at Mississippi. Murray started the next three games and led the Aggies to two wins, but Allen got his job back for Texas A&M’s final two games. With Allen leaving and Murray set to enroll at Oklahoma, Jake Hubenak started at quarterback as the Aggies lost the Music City Bowl 27-21 to Louisville last month. Allen threw for 2,210 yards with 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season. The native of Scottsdale, Arizona, became just the eighth quarterback in Texas A&M history to pass for 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns in a season.

Wrestling: Dual meet state tournament on the horizon? From Page C1

against other standouts, their less-experienced teammates don’t get as much from it as they would a dual tournament. “The reason we’re seeing coaches schedule more and more dual meets and dual tournaments is that it puts greater importance on the team, and that’s an emphasis straight from the coaches’ association,” said John Miller, the WIAA’s administrator for wrestling. And at a time when turnout numbers for wrestling are lower than most coaches would consider ideal, keeping the kids you have engaged has taken on a greater sense of importance. “Dual tournaments are better for the team because everyone gets to wrestle each match as long as there are no forfeits,” Snohomish coach Andy Aichele said. “And if a kid who would normally go two-and-out in a tournament wrestles well and doesn’t give up a pin, that helps the team.” During the 2015-16 season, Wesco and Cascade Conference teams are scheduled for 26 double duals, a figure that is up from 24 in 2014-15 and from 16 in 2013-14. Double duals are a bit divisive among coaches. Most appreciate the economy of getting two individual matches per wrestler with the event counting as one team outing, but some have misgivings about the value of double duals for spectators. “We wrestled four double duals this year, but I’m not crazy about them because I don’t think

people come out to watch a big scramble of teams,” Arlington coach Rick Iversen said. “Our team against your team — that’s what fills a gym.” Most double duals wrestled in Snohomish County are contested in one gym, with two or even three mats side by side. Sometimes basic game management issues present problems for spectators. “Many gyms do not have the ability to display

the team score on the big scoreboards for both duals, so the fans and sometimes the athletes do not know the team score as the match is going on,” Mariner coach Carl Wilkins said. Even with the difference of opinion on the increase in double duals and dual tournaments, the WIAA has had preliminary discussions on adding a dual-meet state tournament to its postseason, a move local coaches support.

“It’s something I would like to see,” Sultan coach Garth MacDicken said. “I know the coaches association has talked about it, and I think the only thing holding us back is funding to send a whole team somewhere.” MacDicken and other coaches enjoy the tension and competitiveness of dual meets, and how it takes a full team to win as opposed to a few stars. “I think a dual state tournament would be awesome. It would really

determine who has the best team,” Aichele said. “The dual meet atmosphere still gives me goose bumps,” MacDicken said. “When they turn the lights out and just keep one big light on the match — it’s very intense.” Miller said the primary obstacle in the path of a team tournament from the WIAA’s perspective is the logistics of whether it would take place before or after Mat Classic, how teams would qualify and how many teams would

Anyimah capped with a putback. He added four more points down the stretch as Mountlake Terrace managed to hold off a determined Glacier Peak comeback bid in the closing seconds. “I think Derek exemplifies what this team is about,” Hawks coach Nalin Sood said. “He’s a hard worker and he just battles. ... He didn’t have a great first half, but then he got it going in the second half. “Derek is really good at a lot of things for us. He’s a good defensive player, he’s a good rebounder, he’s strong to the basket, and he’s one of our better free throw shooters. It’s nice to have a kid like that. What is he great at? Not one thing, but he’s good at everything.” “I think Derek Anyimah had a really great second half,” Grizzlies coach Brian Hunter agreed. “He’s the guy that decided to make some plays and for them that was a huge positive.” After a back-and-forth first quarter, Mountlake Terrace used a 7-0 string early in the second quarter to seize a 14-8 lead. The Grizzlies promptly countered with an 8-0 run of their own, though the Hawks trimmed the deficit to one point at halftime with a late free throw. There were seven lead changes early in the third quarter before Mountlake Terrace began to pull away. The biggest margin was 10 points, 38-28, on Anyimah’s putback basket to start the fourth quarter. But the Grizzlies refused to buckle. A big play came with just over three minutes remaining

participate. “There are some states that hold dual tournaments the day before the individual tournament, and some coaches choose to hold their best wrestlers out of the team tournament,” Miller said. “We’re working with the coaches to figure out how many teams would be involved and how the qualifying process would work. There are a lot of questions to resolve, but it has been a topic of discussion.”

as Brendan Tetrault netted a 3-pointer from the left baseline just as teammate Kyle Dvorak, who was setting a screen, drew a foul from an oncoming Mountlake Terrace defender. Dvorak’s two free throws pulled Glacier Peak within one, 40-39. In the remaining moments the Grizzlies would draw within one point three more times, but they could never get the goahead basket. “We got up 10, but they’ve got guys who can shoot and they can execute,” Sood said. “So I don’t know if we were ever sitting there (on the bench) saying, ‘Well, this is over.’ We knew they were going to get back into it. “Sometimes you have to keep fighting to win the battle,” he said, “and I thought that’s what our kids did.” “We did some things that were OK, but we just didn’t play a complete game,” Hunter said. “We missed opportunities, and against good teams in league play you have to be able to make those plays. That’s the difference between being successful and not being successful.” If there was a silver lining for the Grizzlies, it was their no-quit effort to the final horn. “Hopefully that’s something ingrained in our kids that that’s how we play,” Hunter said. “If we’re going to do the things we want to do and that I think we can do, we’re going to have to do that constantly because that’s how you win basketball games.” Though Glacier Peak has a 1-3 Wesco record, “we’ve still got eight league games left and our focus is on just getting better.”
