’02 murder charge refiled Western State Hospital officials say the suspect in the stabbing is no longer a danger to himself or the community. By Diana Hefley Herald Writer
MARYSVILLE — It’s been nearly 14 years since Brady Sheary’s body was discovered in the parking lot at Cedarcrest
Middle School in Marysville. The 18-year-old was stabbed and beaten to death, likely out of jealousy over a girl. Twice prosecutors have been forced to dismiss the seconddegree murder charge against
the suspect, Todd Lee Brodahl, because state doctors concluded that Brodahl was too mentally ill to assist with his own defense. Prosecutors on Wednesday refiled the murder charge against the Marysville man, now 32. Western State Hospital staff late last month notified Snohomish County prosecutors
that they intended to release Brodahl to a less-restrictive alternative because under the law he no longer meets the criteria for civil commitment. Doctors don’t believe Brodahl is a danger to himself or to the community. See CHARGE, back page, this section

KAYAK POINT — Researchers found that restarting public clam digging at the popular Kayak Point Park beach isn’t a realistic option right now. Seeding the beach with young clams to bolster the population could allow for digging in the future, but getting the tiny clams
and managing what would likely be a short, busy season could prove tricky. The Pacific Shellfish Institute and Stillaguamish River Clean Water District joined forces over the summer to study clam populations at Kayak Point. Biologists wanted to learn if the beach could be reopened for public digging, or seeded with clam larvae and reopened in the future.

LAKE STEVENS — An arrest has been made in the New Year’s Eve home invasion robbery of a Lake Stevens couple in their 70s. A Bonney Lake woman was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Wednesday for investigation of first-degree robbery. Crystal Atter, 27, later appeared in Everett District Court, where her bail was set at $50,000. Atter and two men are accused of breaking into the home in a senior housing community in the 11100 block of 20th Street NE. Two other suspects are not in custody. Atter alleged they were collecting a debt from the couple, according to a police report. The robbery was reported around 5:30 a.m. Dec. 31. The couple reported that their doorbell rang. When the wife answered the door, three people barged in wearing masks and gloves. One of the men allegedly forced the wife to the ground and held her there by the hair while the others confronted her husband, 76, in a bedroom. The husband has Parkinson’s disease and is unable to walk, according to a police report. He reported that he was struck in the head several times with a hard object. His wife watched the trio drive off in a large white vehicle, reportedly taking jewelry and a computer tablet. A neighbor later reported seeing a white Cadillac with a black bag over the license plate swerve and hit a median. The impact left a dent in the trunk and caused the vehicle to lose a hubcap. At that point, one of the suspects got out and removed the bag from the rear plate, the witness told police.

Strongest El Nino storm so far this winter hits By Christopher Weber Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — The hillside above the California home of Wayne Socha had held firm against thunderstorms over the past three decades. But after a wildfire two years ago stripped away vegetation and loosened soil, he feared the strong El Nino storms pounding the state could bring it all down. So the 61-year-old corporate auditor grabbed a sledgehammer and waded through the muck in his
Monrovia back yard to knock a hole in a cement wall and let a mud flow skirt his house and run into a street. “It looked like Niagara Falls,” Socha said. “It was quickly building up behind the house and I knew it could come right inside.” Socha is among uncounted Californians trying to protect their property after the first El Nino storms descended this week and brought wet, windy weather to an area stretching all the way to the Gulf Coast. Those storms dumped nearly 3 inches of rain
Tuesday on Southern California, turning Socha’s terraced backyard into a raging torrent of mud and debris. He kept his sledgehammer and shovels close Wednesday as the winter’s most powerful El Nino storm so far pushed into the state. Driving rain inundated the San Francisco Bay Area during the morning commute, causing nearly two dozen crashes, toppling trees and flooding streets and streams. Officials shut down the city’s iconic cable cars, and buses were used
to serve riders. The system pushed south toward Los Angeles, stirring high waves in the ocean and causing extensive flooding in the San Fernando Valley that swamped cars in deep water. It packed colder temperatures, stronger winds and heavier rainfall than the previous storms that have lined up since the weekend and brought much-needed rain to the drought-stricken state. In all, the current storm was expected to dump as much as 3 more inches of
rain in coastal and valley areas and up to 4 inches at higher elevations, National Weather Service meteorologist Curt Kaplan said. Another less-powerful El Nino storm was right behind and expected to hit land Thursday. Los Angeles authorities spent days getting homeless people from low-lying areas along the Los Angeles River and other waterways prone to flooding. Shuttles were available to shelters that had room for as many as 6,000 beds, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said.
“We’re not going to charge them with things,” Garcetti said. “But we will use the force of law — there is law on the books that they can’t be there.” Motorists in mountain areas were warned that blizzard conditions with wind gusts reaching 60 mph were possible above 4,000 feet. The National Weather Service said a record 1.42 inches of rain fell Tuesday at Los Angeles International Airport as a previous storm passed through the region.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Clusters of stars on the fringes of our Milky Way galaxy may be home to intelligent life. That’s that word from an astrophysicist who’s new to probing extraterrestrial territory.

In addition, so many stars are clumped together it would be easy to hop from one planet to another, keeping an advanced society going. She says the first step is to locate more planets in these clusters. So far, only one has been found.

Third term for Mill Creek Mayor Pruitt By Amy Nile Herald Writer
MILL CREEK — Mayor Pam Pruitt gets to keep the gavel as she presides at City Council meetings for the next two years. The seven-member council elected Pruitt to the helm with a 5-to-2 vote Tuesday evening. Longtime Councilmembers
Mike Todd and Donna Michelson opposed Pruitt’s selection to a third term as mayor. They cast ballots for Todd, who has held the position twice. “I’ve seen Mike as mayor and he does a great job,” said Michelson, also a former mayor. “He does so many things for the city.” Pruitt has been mayor since she was elected to the council in
2014. She previously served as a councilwoman from 1988 to 1995, including a two-year stint as mayor in 1992 and 1993. Now, Pruitt said, she wants to help the council set a vision and stay out of the way while City Manager Rebecca Polizzotto carries it out. Mill Creek is among five Snohomish County cities that have a
strong city manager or councilmanager government. Generally, that means the city manager handles business as the chief executive officer, while the council sets policy as its board of directors. Polizzotto was hired in April after the council forced former City Manager Ken Armstrong to resign. The move continued a
pattern of Mill Creek ousting half of its city managers since incorporation in 1983. Now, Pruitt said, the council and the city manager are making progress. “We’re actually working well together,” she said. “There was a time where that was less so.” See MAYOR, Page A4

PUD won’t pursue tidal-energy project By Dan Catchpole Herald Writer
EVERETT — Snohomish County Public Utility District is closing the book on its mulitmillion-dollar experiment to draw electricity from ocean tides. The PUD has asked federal regulators to cancel its license for the project, which the district stopped working on in September 2014. The project “is no longer
economically feasible,” the district said in its application to give up its license with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The plan had been to put two turbines on the sea floor off Whidbey Island. Tidal currents would turn the turbines, generating local, clean energy. The work never got past the developmental stage, though, and nothing was ever built. Getting that far cost nearly $8 million, took seven years, and involved
working with local, state and federal agencies, the University of Washington, research labs, and others. The PUD pursued the work as part of its policy to expand renewable energy resources in and near Snohomish County. Work seemed to be progressing when the PUD pulled the plug on the tidal energy project. Six months earlier, FERC gave it a green light to install the turbines. The district had asked
contractors to bid on that work. Behind the scenes, though, the U.S. Department of Energy and the PUD disagreed about how to split the project’s costs. The department had agreed in 2010 to pay for half the total cost. But it declined to chip in more when the pricetag ballooned from $20 million to at least $38 million in the following years.

Meeting planned on future of Camano park By Kari Bray Herald Writer
CAMANO ISLAND — As Island County officials work toward fixing a tide gate and dealing with drainage problems at Iverson Preserve, they want to kindle talks with neighbors and park-goers about the area’s future. A public meeting is scheduled for Saturday afternoon to kick off a year-long planning and outreach effort. It starts at 1 p.m. at Four Springs House, 585 Lewis
Lane on Camano Island. People can learn more about Iverson Preserve and weigh in with concerns or ideas for the stretch of shoreline. Island County also is looking for volunteers to serve on a team of neighbors, park users and county staff to lead more in-depth talks about Iverson. Iverson Preserve is a popular destination for hiking, bird watching and dog walking bordered by hay fields, marsh and a residential neighborhood. It includes trails and public

Participants will fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid for 2016-2017, required for all students applying for federal financial aid for college. The first workshop will be
beach access on the east side of Camano Island. There is a pocket estuary there that once spanned about 120 acres, including 3,200 feet of shoreline. A hundred of the acres were diked and drained in the 1940s for hay farming. Island County now owns that land and leases it to a farmer. Some of the trails and clearings at the public park have been flooding because the tide gate there is failing, project manager Lori Clark said. That’s the only for-sure change coming to the preserve, she said: Something

Lynnwood police recently forwarded the case to Snohomish County prosecutors for review. They investigated the driver on suspicion of vehicular homicide, a felony. He allegedly was driving 51 mph in a 35 mph zone. Court records show the Shoreline man was ticketed for speeding in Lynnwood twice in the year before the crash. He was cited in September 2014 for speeding in a school zone, and again in June for going 18 mph over the speed limit.

at the time said that their agency had not committed to more than $10 million. The district couldn’t cover the rest alone, PUD officials said.

Both fines were unpaid and went to collections, records show. The man is described in a police report as an Edmonds Community College student. He was enrolled last summer but no longer attends the college, EdCC officials said. The crash happened just before 4:30 p.m. Aug. 22 along 36th Avenue W.

other partner would step in, said Craig Collar, the PUD’s current general manager and CEO. He oversaw the tidal energy project from 2006 to 2012. Since then, “it became clear that potential wasn’t just small, it was zero,” he said. If the PUD keeps the license, which expires next decade, it would have to file annual progress reports with FERC, even though no work is taking place. So, giving up the license is easier. That process can take anywhere from two weeks to two months, according to FERC. The district and its partners contributed a lot to tidal energy research, and they produced a huge amount of data about Puget Sound’s marine ecosystem, which they openly shared, he said. “We came within a whisker of pulling this thing off,” but the PUD will not pursue tidal energy again, Collar said.

northbound in a green car. Her passenger, Zhi Ping Guan, 47, was wearing the shoulder portion of her seat belt, but not the bottom piece, according to the police report. The driver of the green car slowed to make a left turn into an apartment complex when she was T-boned by the Eclipse. The impact caused Guan’s passenger door to unlatch and swing open. She was thrown from the car. She suffered fatal head injuries and died at the
scene. No one else was seriously hurt. The driver of the green car told police she never saw the Eclipse coming. The Shoreline man told police he was headed to the grocery store after a church event. He said he had tried to brake but could not avoid the collision. He likely could have stopped in time had he been going the speed limit, detectives determined. The Herald is not naming the man, as he has not been charged with a crime.
Alcohol and drugs weren’t believed to be factors in the crash. A vehicular homicide charge is most often filed in connection with people killed in drunken-driving collisions. The state law also can apply if a driver was reckless or disregarded others’ safety. Investigators wrote that they believe the man’s “excessive speed rises to the level of recklessness in such a populated area.” A service for Guan was held in Edmonds in August.
Hearings set for next week on proposed development Herald staff EVERETT — Hearings are scheduled Monday through Friday next week on a 112-home subdivision known as Frognal Estates proposed for a hillside near Mukilteo in unincorporated Snohomish County. Hearing examiner Peter Camp will consider whether the 22-acre project meets code requirements.

UNITED STATES DISTRIBUTION NOTICE:
■ TRYING TO KEEP UP: Rapid shipments of heavy packages containing Vault Bricks loaded with valuable .999 solid U.S. State Silver Bars are flowing around the clock from the private vaults of the Lincoln Treasury to U.S. State residents who call 1-888-873-7302 to beat the 48-hour deadline.

NATIONWIDE – The phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because U.S. State Silver Bars sealed away in State Vault Bricks are being handed over to WA, OR and ID residents at just the state minimum for the next 2 days. This is not a misprint. For the next 2 days residents who find their state on the Distribution List above in bold are getting individual State Silver Bars at just the state minimum of $57 set by the Lincoln Treasury. That’s why nearly everyone is taking full Vault Bricks loaded with five U.S. State Silver Bars before they’re all gone. And here’s the best part. Every WA, OR and ID resident who gets at least two Vault Bricks is also getting free shipping and free handling. That’s a real steal because all other state residents must pay over six hundred dollars for each State Vault Brick. Just a few weeks ago, nobody knew that the only U.S. State Silver Bars locked away in the private vaults of the Lincoln Treasury would be allocated to the U.S. Commemorative Gallery for a limited release to residents in 3 states. Every single one of the 50 U.S. State Silver Bars are date numbered in the order they ratified the Constitution and were admitted into the Union beginning in the late 1700s. “As Executive Advisor to the Lincoln Treasury I get paid to deliver breaking news. So, for anyone who hasn’t heard yet, highly collectable U.S. State Silver Bars are now being handed over at just the state minimum to residents in 3 states who beat the offer deadline, which is why I pushed for this announcement to be widely advertised,” said Mary Ellen Withrow, the emeritus 40th Treasurer of the United States of America. “These bars are solid .999 pure fine silver and will always be a valuable precious metal which is why everyone is snapping up as many as they can before they’re all gone,” Withrow said. There’s one thing Withrow wants to make very clear. State residents only have two days to call the Toll Free Order Hotlines to get the U.S. State Silver Bars. “These valuable U.S. State Silver Bars are impossible to get at banks, credit unions or the

For now, residents can get the U.S. State Silver Bars at just the state minimum as long as they call before the order deadline ends,” confirmed Shissler. “With so many state residents trying to get these U.S. State Silver Bars, lines are busy so keep trying.

Inslee takes action on guns after Obama move By Donna Gordon Blankinship Associated Press
BURIEN — Gov. Jay Inslee signed an executive order Wednesday aimed at curbing gun violence by improving data-sharing among government agencies and starting a new public health campaign on suicide prevention. “We are not afraid to take action here in Washington state,” Inslee said after criticizing inaction by Congress on gun violence. Inslee appears to be the first governor in the nation to take action on the issue after an announcement earlier this week by President Barack Obama regarding an executive order. Inslee praised Obama’s plan to create a more sweeping definition of gun dealers as a way to increase the number of sales requiring background checks. Both leaders are Democrats. As the result of a successful 2014 ballot measure, Washington state already has expanded background checks to include online sales and purchases at gun shows The initiative came the same year the state saw two deadly campus shootings. In Marysville, a high
school student killed three 14-year-old girls and a 15-year-old boy after inviting them to lunch in the cafeteria, authorities said. Earlier, a 19-year-old student was killed and two others wounded in a shooting at Seattle Pacific University. Legislative Democrats in California also applauded the president’s action and are planning a package of gun control measures, but they have yet to introduce the proposals. The effort was launched after the San Bernardino attack that killed 14 in December. California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, said in an interview last month that the bills will include ways to address so-called ghost guns that can be built from parts at home and do not have a serial number. States, however, are limited in what gun laws legislators can enact. Still, much of what the president has proposed is already in effect in Washington, California and a handful of other states. In his executive order, Inslee said firearm deaths now exceed motor vehicle crash fatalities in the state and that 80 percent of firearm deaths are suicides.
Inslee, who is seeking re-election later this year, outlined his plans with representatives of the University of Washington School of Social Work and the director of the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center. It calls for better data analysis of the effectiveness of current gun safety efforts; looking for failures in the state’s current methods of sharing information among law enforcement and social service agencies; and eyeing gaps in the state’s firearm purchasing laws. Inslee wants to look into better adolescent depression screening, initiate a campaign focused on suicide prevention and develop culturally appropriate crisis-prevention and treatment services for Native Americans and Alaskan Natives. “This will be a datadriven approach that helps us identify the people and places most susceptible to gun crime and suicide,” Inslee said. “Gun crime is a scourge that has scarred thousands of families in every corner of our state. It’s a scourge we can, should and will help prevent.” King County Sheriff John Urquhart said the governor’s actions will help law

enforcement get a better handle on where street guns are coming from and may help them follow-up on the people who try to buy guns but fail to do so because of the background check system. Urquhart and other speakers said Inslee’s proposals carefully skirt some of the most divisive issues involving guns and focus on things gun owners and gun haters can agree on. “When you have bullies
yelling, you can’t have any progress,” Urquhart said. “There’s common ground there and we need to shame both sides into sitting down together.” Gun safety advocate Cheryl Stumbo, who was in the audience at Inslee’s news conference, said she was pleased the governor is working to link mental health issues and gun violence. Stumbo survived a 2006 shooting at the
Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. Steven Nielson, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Washington State, criticized Inslee’s action saying it was another step away from the guidelines of both the state and U.S. constitutions. “I think that mental health issues need to be addressed, especially as it relates to veterans and at risk individuals and teens. But that is not a gun control issue,” Nielson said.
State acts on carbon pollution from largest facilities
OBITUARIES AND MEMO OBITUARIES AND MEMORIALS
By Phuong Le Associated Press
SEATTLE — The state’s largest industrial emitters would be required to reduce carbon emissions by 5 percent every three years, under a proposed rule released Wednesday by state regulators. The Department of Ecology’s proposed Clean Air Rule would initially apply to about two dozen manufacturing plants, refineries, power plants, natural gas distributors and others that release at least 100,000 metric tons of carbon a year. Many more facilities would likely be covered by the rule as that threshold is lowered over time. State officials say the rule is needed to protect human health and the environment from climate change.
“It’s important that we act now to protect our water supplies, infrastructure and economy for future generations,” Ecology Director Maia Bellon said in a prepared statement. Environmental and other groups applauded the draft rule as a crucial step in addressing climate change. But business groups and others have worried the efforts could hurt the state’s ability to attract and retain industries. The draft rule comes after Gov. Jay Inslee failed last year to get legislation passed on his ambitious cap-and-trade plan that would have charged industrial facilities a fee for carbon emissions. In July, Inslee directed Ecology to limit carbon pollution using its existing authority under the state’s Clean Air Act.
Meanwhile, two competing efforts are trying to limit carbon pollution through statewide initiatives. In one effort, backers of Initiative 732 have turned over 350,000 signatures on a proposal to tax carbon pollution at $25 a metric ton while lowering other state taxes. If verified, I-732 would go before the Legislature. If lawmakers don’t act, the measure would go on the 2016 ballot. A coalition of environmental, labor and social justice groups, the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy, is also planning a statewide ballot initiative. That measure hasn’t been finalized, but it could impose new fees on carbon pollution and direct the money for clean-energy projects, lowincome communities and other projects.
Officials say its Clean Air Rule would capture about 60 percent of the state’s overall carbon emissions, but it would not get the state all the way toward its mandate to limit emissions of greenhouse gases to the 1990 level. The rule would initially apply to facilities releasing at least 100,000 metric tons. As that threshold drops by 5,000 metric tons every three years, it would apply to more entities. Ecology identified nearly four dozen facilities such as Joint Base Lewis-McChord and the University of Washington that could eventually be covered by the rule as the threshold is lowered over time. The University of Washington, for example, last reported over 90,000 metric tons of emissions, Ecology said.
“There are elements that are concerning to us,” said Brandon Houskeeper, government affairs director with the Association of Washington Business, which represents most of those who would be covered by the proposed rule. “Lowering the threshold means more entities would be covered by this rule. What signal does that send to businesses hoping to relocate to Washington?” he asked. Facilities would have different ways to comply with the rule, including buying credits from another carbon market system such as California’s or sponsoring projects that permanently reduce carbon pollution. The agency has scheduled four public hearings. It expects to finalize a rule by summer.
be concerned. An Elway Poll released Wednesday shows Inslee leading Republican challenger Bill Bryant 39 percent to 30 percent with the rest undecided. The survey of 500 voters was conducted at the end of December. Bryant is widely unknown around the state
and the survey makes clear he’s got an uphill battle to find enough votes to win. Inslee isn’t sailing along either. His job performance rating dipped since the last Elway Poll in July and has declined a little every six months since January 2014. There are other findings that hint at Inslee’s potential vulnerability and need to shore up his support. To that end, Inslee has started directing the conversation away from
the challenges engulfing his administration to the changes he’s looking to bring to Washington. On Wednesday, for example, he announced the launch of a statewide initiative to reduce gunrelated deaths and injuries. On the same day, he put out the draft of new clean air rules that could force the state’s largest polluters to eventually reduce emissions. And last month he
proposed closing some tax breaks and using the money to give public school teachers a pay hike. Those are among the policy pursuits he’ll put in bold on his resume for the coming campaign.

purchased the property in 1999. A study in 2001 came up with four possibilities. They included leaving the preserve as is, removing dikes to restore the estuary and two partial restoration options that fall in between. Researchers ultimately determined that more information was needed, particularly about the potential for flooding and saltwater intrusion in the area. “We’re trying to see where different solutions might overlap for habitat, the community and the drainage issues we’re having out there,” Clark said. “There are a lot of issues that are important to people. We’re basically just going to ask them.” During the meeting, attendants will be asked to suggest specific goals for the project, possible partnerships, opportunities for park users and neighbors
to help, and the best timing and frequency for future meetings. “We’re hoping to swing something that helps homeowners and helps the wildlife,” Pucci said. “We want to mine the great ideas out there that we haven’t heard yet.” A lot of factors need to be considered, she said. Iverson Spit is changing on its own, with sediment piling up in Port Susan from the Stillaguamish River, more intense storms rolling in and a rising sea level. The needs of nearby homeowners or regular park-goers also may change, which is why public meetings like the one on Saturday are important, she said.

and saltwater meet. It provides a haven for juvenile salmon where they have food, protection from predators and time to grow and adjust to ocean water in the fresh-saltwater mix, said Dawn Pucci, salmon recovery coordinator with Island County. Iverson Preserve is in the path of young salmon migrating from the Stillaguamish and Snohomish rivers. “It’s very valuable habitat because of its proximity to the rivers, so if we can add more habitat, we’d definitely like to,” Clark said. “But we’re not going to prioritize salmon habitat over homes or a park.” Changes at Iverson Preserve have been discussed off and on since the county
Green Beret killed in Afghanistan Associated Press SEATTLE — The Defense Department says a veteran Green Beret in the Washington National Guard has been killed in action in Afghanistan. Staff Sgt. Matthew McClintock, of Des Moines, was on his third combat tour when he was killed Tuesday in southern Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. McClintock, 30, joined the Washington National Guard in 2014 after several years as an active duty soldier. He deployed
with the Washington National Guard’s A Company 19th Special Forces Group in July 2015. Maj. Gen. Bret Daugherty, commander of the Washington National Guard, said McClintock was “one of the best of the best.” He said the Guard will provide ongoing support to McClintock’s family during the grieving and healing process. Gov. Jay Inslee called McClintock “a true American hero who stood up to protect his state and nation.”

Congress repeals health law Bill dismantling key elements sent to Obama, who has promised a veto By Erica Werner Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The GOPled Congress sent legislation to President Barack Obama Wednesday repealing his signature health law, fulfilling a promise to Republican voters in a presidential election year but inviting a certain veto. The nearly party-line vote in the House was 240-181. The legislation already passed the Senate last year under special rules protecting it from Democratic obstruction, so it goes straight to the White House. Republicans boasted of a signal achievement, saying they were forcing Obama to face up to the failures of his law while illustrating the stark political choices voters face. “We are confronting the president with the hard, honest truth,” said Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. “Obamacare doesn’t work.” Democrats called it pointless political theater that will have the same ultimate outcome as the 61 previous repeal votes that were blocked in the Senate, since Obama will veto the legislation. “A bill that is going to the White House, that will get the fastest veto we’ve ever seen happen in this country, is a monumental vote?” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. “This is just a waste of everyone’s time.” Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has decried the repeal legislation while leading GOP candidates applauded it. GOP leaders acknowledged it will take a Republican president to get rid of the law. But they said that is the point. “It is our opportunity as
Gun buyer in San Bernardino attack pleads not guilty RIVERSIDE, Calif. — The man who bought the rifles used in the San Bernardino attack pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges in a federal indictment accusing him of conspiring with one of the shooters and to provide material support to terrorists. A jury trial was scheduled for Feb. 23. Enrique Marquez Jr., 24, could be sent to prison for as long as 50 years if he’s convicted. The Dec. 30 indictment superseded charges he originally faced when arrested two weeks after the Dec. 2 shootings carried out by his friend Syed Rizwan Farook and Farook’s wife, Tashfeen Malik. The couple killed 14 people and wounded 22 others before being killed hours later by with police. Authorities said Marquez’s failure to warn authorities about Farook and his purchase of the guns had deadly consequences.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., smiles as he departs the chamber just after the GOP-controlled House voted to eliminate key parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law and to stop taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood.
Republicans to lay out the choice for the American people,” said Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, of Washington. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, of California, predicted that a Republican president will be in the White House next year and Congress will pass the repeal legislation again, “but we won’t have to worry about a veto from the White House.” For maximum visibility Republican leaders made the legislation, which also cuts federal funding for Planned Parenthood, their first major vote of 2016. Although they don’t command sufficient votes to override a presidential veto, they hope to schedule the override vote to coincide with the
Jan. 22 March for Life in Washington commemorating the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Yet Ryan hedged when asked whether the House will ever vote on a GOP replacement to Obamacare. Ryan has pledged that the House will come up with its own plan this year. But he said details such as whether the plan will actually come to a vote have not been determined. “Nothing’s been decided yet,” Ryan said. “Just wait.” Three Republicans joined Democrats in voting against the repeal bill: Reps. Robert Dold of Illinois, and Richard Hanna and John Katko of New York. One Democrat vo ted for it: Rep. Collin Peterson
of Minnesota. The bill would dismantle the health law’s key pillars, including requirements that most people obtain coverage and larger employers offer it to workers. It would eliminate the expansion of Medicaid coverage to additional lower-income people and government subsidies for many who buy policies on newly created insurance marketplaces. And it would end taxes the law imposed to cover its costs. The bill also would terminate the roughly $450 million yearly in federal dollars that go to Planned Parenthood, about a third of its budget. The group came under intensified GOP pressure last year over providing fetal tissue for research.
H-bomb claim draws tough response By Foster Klug and Hyung-Jin Kim Associated Press
SEOUL, South Korea — The United States, South Korea and Japan agreed to launch a “united and strong” international response to North Korea’s claim of a successful hydrogen bomb test, as experts scrambled Thursday to find more details about the detonation that drew worldwide skepticism and condemnation. It may take weeks or longer to confirm or contradict the North’s claim, but a successful test would mark a major and unanticipated advance for its still-limited nuclear arsenal and push its scientists and engineers closer to their goal of building a warhead small enough to place on a missile that can reach the U.S. mainland. Separate statements from the White House said President Barack Obama had spoken to South Korean President Park Geun-Hye and to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan. The statements said the countries “agreed to work together to forge a united and strong international response to North Korea’s latest reckless behavior.” Obama also reaffirmed the “unshakeable U.S. commitment” to the security of South Korea and Japan. The North’s bomb test drew worldwide condemnation, with the U.N. Security Council holding an emergency session and pledging to swiftly pursue new sanctions against North Korea, saying its test was a “clear violation” of previous U.N. resolutions. Four rounds of U.N. sanctions have aimed at reining in the North’s nuclear and missile development programs, but Pyongyang has ignored them and moved ahead with programs to modernize its

ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. South Korean officials said they were considering a variety of punitive measures. The options include restarting border propaganda broadcasts that Seoul halted after it agreed with Pyongyang in late August on a package of measures aimed at easing animosities, Defense Minister Han Min-koo told lawmakers Thursday. On Wednesday, there was a burst of jubilation and pride in North Korea’s capital of Pyongyang, where a TV anchor said the test of a “miniaturized” hydrogen bomb had been a “perfect success” that elevated the country’s “nuclear might to the next level.” But an early analysis by the U.S. government was “not consistent with the claims that the regime has made of a successful hydrogen bomb test,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. He added that nothing had happened in the past 24 hours to change Washington’s assessment of Pyongyang’s technical or military capabilities. South Korea’s spy agency told lawmakers that it thought the estimated explosive yield from the blast was much
smaller than what even a failed hydrogen bomb detonation would produce. Other analysts agreed with that assessment. “I’m pretty skeptical,” said Melissa Hanham, senior researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute for International Studies in Monterey, California. “The seismic data indicates it would be very small for a hydrogen test. While also noting the quake was likely too small for an H-bomb test, Jaiki Lee, a professor of nuclear engineering at Seoul’s Hanyang University, said the North could have experimented with a “boosted” hybrid bomb that uses some nuclear fusion fuel along with more conventional uranium or plutonium fuel. Fusion is the main principle behind the hydrogen bomb, which can be hundreds of times more powerful than atomic bombs that use fission. In a hydrogen bomb, a nuclear fission explosion sets off a fusion reaction responsible for a powerful blast and radioactivity. Washington and nuclear experts have been skeptical
of past North Korean claims about hydrogen bombs, which are much more powerful and much more difficult to make than atomic bombs. North Korea’s state media called the test a self-defense measure against a potential U.S. attack. “The (country’s) access to H-bomb of justice, standing against the U.S., the chieftain of aggression ... is the legitimate right of a sovereign state for self-defense and a very just step no one can slander.” The hydrogen bomb already is the global standard for the five nations with the greatest nuclear capabilities: the U.S., Russia, France, the U.K. and China. Other nations may also either have it or are working on it, despite a worldwide effort to contain such proliferation. Just how big a threat North Korea’s nuclear program poses is a mystery. 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 carry smaller versions of those bombs. Some analysts say the North probably hasn’t achieved the technology needed to make a miniaturized warhead that could fit on a long-range missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland. To build its nuclear program, the North must explode new and more advanced devices so scientists can improve their designs and technology. It could be weeks before the true nature of the test is confirmed by outside experts, if they are able to do so at all. U.S. aircraft designed to detect evidence of a nuclear test, such as radioactive particulate matter, could be deployed from a U.S. base on the Japanese island of Okinawa. Japanese media said Tokyo mobilized its own reconnaissance aircraft over the Sea of Japan to try to collect atmospheric data.
Licenses for immigrants California issued more than a halfmillion driver’s licenses under a new law granting the identifying documents to immigrants who may be in the country illegally. The Department of Motor Vehicles said Wednesday that 605,000 licenses were issued since AB60 took effect last January. AB60 allows people who can’t prove they’re in the country legally to obtain driver’s licenses using identification from their home countries. They must prove state residency and pass written and driving tests.
Gas leak state of emergency Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency Wednesday over a massive natural-gas leak that has been spewing fumes into a Los Angeles neighborhood for months. Brown said he acted based on the requests of residents of Porter Ranch and the “prolonged and continuing” nature of the gas blowout at the underground storage facility. The well has been gushing up to 1,200 tons of methane daily. The leak was first reported in October. The utility is paying to relocate thousands of households after residents complained that the gases were making them sick.
Texas: Trooper indicted, fired A state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland after a contentious traffic stop last summer was fired Wednesday after being charged with perjury for allegedly lying about his confrontation with the black woman who died three days later in jail. Trooper Brian Encinia claimed in an affidavit that Bland was “combative and uncooperative” after he pulled her over and ordered her out of her car. The grand jury identified that affidavit in charging Encinia with perjury, special prosecutor Shawn McDonald said Wednesday. Hours after the indictment, the Texas Department of Public Safety said it would “begin termination proceedings” against Encinia. Bland’s death was ruled a suicide.
AROUND THE WORLD Ghana: Gitmo detainees Ghana’s foreign ministry says two former Guantanamo detainees of Yemeni origin will be settling for two years in the West African nation at the request of the United States. The ministry also said Wednesday that two people from Rwanda who were tried by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda also will be allowed to settle in Ghana. It said the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East means it will also provide refuge for some displaced Syrians with relatives in Ghana. The government said that all those coming in will be monitored.
Syria: Assad timeline The Obama administration has a vision for Syrian leader Bashar Assad’s departure. Even if it works, President Barack Obama won’t be around to see the plan through. An internal U.S. timeline for a best-case Syrian political transition, obtained by The Associated Press, sets a date of March 2017 for Assad to “relinquish” his position as president and for his “inner circle” to depart. That is two months after Obama leaves office and more than five years after Obama first called for Assad to leave. The State Department said Wednesday the timeline was prepared as a guide for Secretary of State John Kerry and other U.S. diplomats working on a political transition for Syria.

Netflix in 130 more countries The surprise expansion is the “birth of a global TV network,” CEO Reed Hastings says. By Michael Liedtke Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix has already crossed off the biggest item on its New Year’s list of resolutions. The Internet video service debuted in 130 countries Wednesday in a surprise move likely to reel in millions of new subscribers. CEO Reed Hastings revealed the scope of Netflix’s expansion at the end of a presentation in Las
Vegas at CES, one of the technology industry’s marquee events. “You are witnessing the birth of a global TV network,” Hastings crowed on stage. The news caught almost everyone off guard because Netflix had previously set a goal of being available in most of the world by the end of this year. It looked like the Los Gatos, California, company had plenty of work ahead it because it ended December in 60 countries.
Now, Netflix is available in 21 different languages and streaming in just about every market that it had in its sights, with the notable exception of China, the world’s most populous country. Entering China may be a formidable challenge requiring potentially prickly negotiations with a government that blocks its citizenry from seeing material it considers objectionable or incendiary. Netflix currently has no plans to push into North Korea, Syria or Crimea because of restrictions on U.S. companies operating in those countries.
Investors were delighted with Netflix’s quantum leap across the globe. Its stock climbed $8.78, or 8 percent, $116.44 on a grim day in the rest of the market. The uptick in the shares reflects a belief that Netflix is now in a position to sign up more subscribers this year than analysts had previously anticipated, generating additional revenue that the company can spend on TV series and movies as it bids against rivals such as HBO, Amazon.com, YouTube and Hulu for licensing rights.

Not-so-clever TVs Streaming devices are leaving the smart sets behind By Anick Jesdanun and Ryan Nakashima Associated Press
LAS VEGAS — Turns out that smart TVs can be, well, pretty dumb. Even moderately priced sets can now connect to the Internet and run Netflix and other apps — that’s the “smart” part. Yet many people are ignoring the built-in features and turning to Apple TV, Roku and other stand-alone streaming devices that often do a better job. In an August report, the NPD Group estimates that roughly a third of smart TVs in the U.S. weren’t actually connected to the Internet. That’s down from about half two years earlier, but still not good. Researchers at Parks Associates found that even as more Americans are using smart TV functions, streaming device usage has grown even faster. “If you’re a streaming media
box (maker), you’ve got much more ability to push new features out into the market at an affordable price,” says Barbara Kraus, Parks Associates’ director of research. “They’re very stiff competition for smart TVs.” None of that is slowing down TV manufacturers like Samsung, though, as they continue to tout their newest and smartest models at this week’s CES gadget show in Las Vegas. In a way, putting brains in a device that most people replace only every five to seven years isn’t the brightest idea. Chips get faster every year, so by the time you’re ready to buy a new set, its brains will be really, really old, at least in technology terms. The software, though, can present an even bigger problem. Smart TVs are frequently plagued with confusing interfaces, buggy functions and inconsistent updates. They are sometimes mysteriously unable to run new
streaming services and may never be updated to add new features to the ones they do run. Worse, some TV makers focus on bringing new features only to their latest models in an effort to persuade people to buy new sets. Samsung’s 2016 models, for instance, implicitly inform anyone who bought last year’s sets that they’ve already been left behind. Those earlier customers won’t be able to use their Samsung TVs to set mood lighting or check security cameras in a connected home. Among the new features in LG’s 2016 models: Magic Zoom, which will let viewers zoom in on video while it’s playing — using a digital magnifying glass — to make out small text and other details. But LG won’t say when, if ever, older TVs will get that. The divide between smart TVs and streaming devices could See SMART, Page A10
Feds probe norovirus outbreak at Chipotle By Candice Choi Associated Press
NEW YORK — Chipotle reported a sales plunge of 30 percent for December after a series of food scares at its restaurants and disclosed that a federal criminal investigation tied to the sickening of customers has begun. The company said in a regulatory filing that it was asked to produce a broad range of documents tied to a norovirus outbreak this summer at its restaurant in Simi Valley, California,
but declined to provide further details. It said the investigation does not involve a more recent E. coli outbreak tied to its restaurants that sickened people in nine states, or a separate norovirus outbreak in Boston. The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California in conjunction with the Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Criminal Investigations, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission Wednesday. A representative for the U.S. Attorney’s office declined to comment. Representatives for the FDA did not respond to a request for comment. The emergence of a criminal investigation after a norovirus outbreak is unusual, said Bill Marler, a food safety lawyer representing Chipotle customers who were sickened in Simi Valley. Outbreaks at restaurants are typically caused by an infected employee. Marler couldn’t think of a
reason for a federal investigation, other than employment violations. The disclosure of the investigation comes as Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. reels from E. coli outbreaks in late October and November, which were followed by the sickened customers at a restaurant in Boston in December. Those cases received far more national media attention than the California incident, and the company’s sales have See CHIPOTLE, Page A10

HONG KONG — Chinese stock trading was been temporarily suspended for the second time this week after “circuit breakers” kicked in following a steep plunge. The official Xinhua news agency said Thursday that trading on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges was frozen for the day after shares tumbled more than 7 percent. The emergency measures, which were introduced in December, also kicked in on Monday to halt stock trading.
Despite the Federal Reserve’s unanimous vote to raise a key interest rate last month, some policymakers viewed their decision as a “close call” because of stubbornly low inflation. Going forward, officials believed economic conditions would likely justify “only gradual increases” in its benchmark rate, minutes of the Fed’s December meeting released Wednesday showed. The Fed boosted the rate by a quarter point to a new range of 0.25 percent to 0.5 percent in December. It had been at a record low near zero for the past seven years.

Chinese trading halted
Some saw Fed rate hike as ‘close call’
By Brandon Bailey SAN FRANCISCO — Apple fans keep buying iPhones, but Wall Street keeps worrying the company won’t be able to match last year’s blistering sales pace. Shares in the world’s most valuable company have fallen more than 15 percent over the last month, amid a drumbeat of news reports that some Asian parts suppliers are expecting Apple to trim orders for its signature smartphone this winter. Those fears were compounded Wednesday when the Wall Street Journal said one of Apple’s most important contractors is sending some workers home on “early holiday” before the Chinese New Year in February. Even an upbeat report from Apple announcing that its online App Store set a sales record last week failed to boost the stock. Its shares fell more than 2 percent Wednesday and were trading just above $100. Apple Inc. declined to comment Wednesday. But top executives at the Cupertino, California, company said last fall they expected to sell more iPhones during the past three months of 2015 than they did a year earlier, when the company sold a record 74.5 million. As evidence for his optimism, CEO Tim Cook said in October that a growing number of consumers
four doubled propellers spinning parallel to the ground like other drones. According to the company, the electric-powered drone can carry up to 220 pounds and fly for 23 minutes at sea level. With propellers folded up, it’s designed to fit in a single
parking spot. The cabin fits one person and a small backpack and even has air conditioning and a reading light, Ehang said. Some of the company’s claims border on the heroic. The company said the drone can be fully charged in 2 hours, adding that after setting a flight
plan, passengers only need to give two commands, “take off” and “land,” each controlled by a single click. U.S. authorities are just starting to lay out guidelines for drone use, and a humanpassenger drone seems certain to face strict scrutiny. Associated Press
Global economic forecast downgraded The World Bank has cut its forecast for global growth this year given weakness in the developing world. The aid agency said Wednesday that it expects the world economy to expand 2.9 percent in 2016, down from the forecast of 3.3 percent it made in June. The global economy grew 2.4 percent in 2015.
Macy’s cuts 4,800 jobs Macy’s is cutting up to 4,800 jobs after disappointing holiday sales. The Cincinnatibased department store chain said sales fell 5.2 percent in November and December at existing stores. Warm weather and lower spending by international tourists hurt sales.
Cook gets $1M raise Apple CEO Tim Cook got a raise of more than $1 million last year, though he didn’t make as much as his top lieutenants. The tech company says in a filing that Cook’s total pay was nearly $10.3 million, including $2 million salary, an $8 million bonus and $209,000 for private security. Apple paid five senior vice presidents more than $25 million apiece, including stock grants worth $20 million.

of use, experience and content aggregation. It’s a different kind of business.” Some TV makers, including Hisense, Sharp and TCL, have turned to Roku’s smart TV system for that reason. Because the interface shares technology with Roku’s stand-alone streaming devices, app makers can design once for many devices. Plus, Roku smart TVs get software updates about the same time standalone devices do. But Roku isn’t bringing streaming video with sharper 4K resolution to those smart TVs until this spring, even though the Roku 4 streaming device
had that capability when it came out in October — yet another way buying a smart TV can make you feel like a dunce. So why do TV makers bother making smart TVs? Call it the business equivalent of FOMO — Fear Of Missing Out. “What they don’t want to be is just a piece of glass,” says Jim Denney, TiVo’s vice president of product marketing. Start with competition. It’s very difficult for a manufacturer to make a dumb TV, particularly one larger than about 40 inches, when competitors are all throwing smarts in. Hardware manufacturers
That slate encompasses more than 50 exclusive TV shows and movies, including award-winning series such as “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black.” Although Netflix is now virtually worldwide, not of all its entertainment will be available everywhere. For instance, a prized licensing contract that gives Netflix the rights to Walt Disney films after their theatrical release will be limited to the U.S. and Canada as part of a deal negotiated several years ago.
Hastings told reporters Wednesday that Netflix is hoping to expand those rights into other countries. Netflix has come up with a formula that has proven addictive as its service has transformed the entertainment industry by allowing people to watch video anytime they want on an Internet-connected device. Hastings revealed Wednesday that Netflix subscribers watched 42.5 billion hours of programming last year, including 12 billion hours in the October-December
fourth quarter. The fourth-quarter viewership volume represented a nearly 50 percent increase from 8.25 billion hours the previous year. Put another way, Netflix subscribers are now watching a weekly average of 13 hours of programming, up from 12 hours the previous year. In remarks to reporters, Hastings likened the nearcompletion of Netflix’s worldwide expansion to a parent having a baby. “It’s a big deal, but the real work is the next 20 years,” Hastings, 55, said.
said it could not determine or predict the amount of any “fines, penalties or further liabilities” it might face in connection with the federal investigation. A Chipotle spokesman, Chris Arnold, wrote in an email the company does not discuss pending litigation, but that it intends to cooperate fully with the investigation. Doug Beach, a manager of the food program at Ventura County’s Environmental Health Division, said the U.S. Attorney’s office requested records from the his office
regarding the Chipotle case about a month ago. “That was a first for us,” Beach said in a phone interview. Beach said Chipotle had been cooperative with the county’s investigation, which uncovered issues such as unclean equipment and employees without the necessary food handling permits. He also noted that Chipotle started getting complaints about illnesses on Tuesday, Aug. 18, and shut down its restaurant the following Friday. Yet the company did not alert the county of the matter
until Saturday — after it had already reopened the restaurant, Beach said. To rehabilitate its image, Chipotle has taken out full-page ads apologizing to customers in dozens of newspapers around the country. It also vowed changes to step up food safety at its restaurants, in part by tweaking its cooking methods and increasing testing of meat and produce. Co-CEO Steve Ells has said the company will likely never know what ingredient was to blame for the E. coli cases.

It’s not any more just about Netflix or Hulu.” There’s also something to be said about letting TV makers and tech companies focus on what each does best. In other words, when you put your living room in the hands of software created by a hardware company, you may live to regret it. “There are some TV companies that do a fantastic job of creating beautiful sets with fantastic picture quality,” says Lloyd Klarke, Roku’s director of product management. “Our focus is on ease

also want to avoid being marginalized the way they were in smartphones.

Cook has also cautioned against drawing conclusions based on reports from individual contractors, since the company has an extensive supply and production network. The iPhone is crucial for Apple, since it provides almost two-thirds of its revenue. The latest iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models, introduced last fall, have several new features, but analysts say they aren’t dramatically different from previous 6 and 6 Plus phones that went on sale in late 2014.

Apple has introduced other new products in recent months, including the Apple Watch, iPad Pro and a new Apple TV control box. But they “have not become meaningful revenue resources to offset slowing iPhone sales in 2016,” Zhang wrote. Those worries have dogged Apple’s stock for months.

THE DAILY HERALD
Charter school accountability to shut down. One school in Seattle has begun the process to revert to a private school. The eight other schools, including schools in Spokane, Tacoma and Highline, are considering a contract with a small 500-student public school district near Spokane. Two schools might also apply for state funding to serve as home-school centers. The Legislature begins its session Monday, focused chiefly on correcting the school funding issue for more than a million other of the state’s K-12 students, but two Spokane-area senators, Democrat Andy Billig and Republican Michael Baumgartner, have proposed legislation, Senate Bill 6136, that would allow the schools to stay open and provide for the opening of more schools but would make the charter schools accountable to local school district boards. The move would keep the charter schools as an alternative but would satisfy the court’s concern about
public accountability. Charter schools would lose the autonomy they now enjoy, but the legislation would give the charter schools more flexibility than allowed alternative schools in most school districts, said Billig in an Associated Press story this week. Charter school boards would negotiate with their local school district board regarding length of school day, school year and instructional hours, professional development and staffing levels, hiring and firing of charter school staff, curriculum and budgeting decisions. Funding from levies, on a perstudent basis, also would be negotiated between the charter school board and school district board. Charter school proponents may chafe at having to submit to local school district oversight, but the legislation would keep existing schools running and allow more to open. And it would add to school district management duties, but the students in charter schools would be the districts’

Imagine they might resent that and fight back. Reagan had al-Qaida to the White House and supported them in a proxy war with Russia. They later flew planes into the Twin Towers. The writer cries out about the innocents who die. Where was he when the Bush administration lied us into war that killed 4,500 of our soldiers, not counting millions of Iraqis. Obama inherited this from previous sins of our CIA, corporate involvement and the neocon beliefs of world economic domination. We now have the Republic-con party calling for more killing, more war. Wanting to ban Muslims refugees, which we created with our wars. So it isn’t Obama who created the

responsibility with or without the charter schools. The legislation also honors the voters’ will to create the charter school system, albeit with 51 percent approval. The debate continues as to whether charter schools are as effective in educating students as their supporters claim. In a Herald guest commentary in November, Lew Moore, president of the Washington Research Council, pointed to national research in 2009 that found that for most students, a charter school education was not a significant improvement over a traditional public school education. The exception was for charter schools in urban areas where a majority of students from low-income families, minority students and English-language learners did benefit. The Senate legislation allows the charter school laboratories of learning to continue and seems to satisfy the constitutional requirement for public oversight of state and local funding.

Seeds planted in Reagan era Regarding the letter, “Blame belongs to our president”: It’s disappointing that the Herald editorial board would print a letter blaming the president for terrorism. Obviously the writer has no knowledge of history, just hatred. He points out the world order, and the academic elite and multinational corporations as Obama’s vision — far from the truth. He, like the Republic-con party who love the world order, as long as we rule it, do not want people to be educated, unless they can profit from it, and bow down to multinational corporations by letting them ship our manufacturing jobs overseas and gild them with tax cuts and off-shore tax breaks. These are the true terrorists and unpatriotic to our country. As to where terrorists came from you have to look back

Graphic games may play part When I was growing up people owned guns, gun shops sold guns and I don’t remember any mass shootings at schools, malls, movie theaters or anywhere. So why now? With what generation did this start and why? Could it be the graphic video games the kids play hour after hour? Kill as many people as you can then reload. Or is it that parents can’t discipline their kids like ours did without risking doing time on a chain gang. Maybe we all need to get back to basics more so then worrying about liberal mindset.

States have 3 reasons to expand Medicaid By Bloomberg editors
ome 3 million Americans who lack health insurance could gain coverage, if only their states would accept the Medicaid funding that the Affordable Care Act provides. Two years into Obamacare, the arguments in favor of extending this coverage have only grown stronger. Opponents have warned, for example, that giving health benefits to able-bodied adults will discourage them from
working. But a comparison of states that have expanded Medicaid and those that haven’t — part of a collection of new Obamacare studies published Tuesday — found that expansion had no significant effect on employment levels among the newly eligible. What Medicaid expansion has changed, however, is the number of uninsured who are treated in hospitals. In states that went along with the program — Washington state
inclued — the share of uninsured patients in hospitals fell from 12 percent to 6 percent; other states saw no change. Fewer uninsured patients means hospitals have more money to spend on things like research, improved care and worker salaries. Some conservative states have tried an alternative to the expansion: Rather than add qualified people to Medicaid rolls, they have used the federal money to enroll them in private insurance plans. And

IN OUR VIEW | Legislature 2016
Since the start of the school year, the estimated 1,300 students enrolled in nine K-12 charter schools across the state have lived with the uncertainty of where they will attend school after this year. As schools prepared to open in September, the state Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, ruled that the citizen’s initiative that created the state’s charter school system was unconstitutional because the schools were receiving state funds but weren’t subject to the oversight of voters. The court cited a 1909 precedent that found that only the voters, through those they elect locally to school boards, had the authority to administer publicly supported “common schools.” Supporters protested that the approval of the initiative ought to serve as adequate voter oversight, but the court denied a request to reconsider its decision in November. Since then, the statewide Charter School Commission has begun preparations
this strategy seems to improve access to medical care just as well, another study shows. A handful of states — including Louisiana, South Dakota and Virginia — now appear closer to reversing their earlier opposition to expanding Medicaid. The new data show there are still economic, and humanitarian, reasons to go ahead. The above editorial appears on Bloomberg View at www. bloomberg.com/view.
No honor for intransigence on gun safety
t is axiomatic that congressional Republicans will oppose anything smacking of “gun control,” which may as well be read as “Your mama.” Thus, it comes as no surprise that President Obama’s announcement of executive actions to clarify and enhance federal gun laws prompted KATHLEEN PARKER reflexive, hyperbolic responses from the right. Marco Rubio said Obama is “obsessed with undermining the Second Amendment,” while Ted Cruz averred, “We don’t beat the bad guys by taking away our guns; we beat the bad guys by using our guns.” Spoken like a true, Canadian-born Texan who has been busy burnishing his “outsider” Outdoor Guy image. House Speaker Paul Ryan criticized the president for a “dangerous level of executive overreach” and for circumventing congressional opposition — as though Congress has been working feverishly to reduce gun violence. Rather, Republicans focus their laser beams on Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s political motivations, shocking to none, and remind us that we already have enough gun laws. This may well be true, but couldn’t we stand to tweak them a bit? Or, perhaps, enforce them? And, isn’t it possible to reduce the number of guns in the wrong hands without surrendering our Second Amendment rights or invoking the slippery slope of government confiscation? Of course it is — and we can. Obama made an artful and poignant counterargument to the usual objections Tuesday during a news conference from the White House. He reminded those gathered, including many who have lost family members to gun violence, that other people also have rights — the right to free assembly or the right to practice their religion without being shot. In fairness to the gun lobby, which may not deserve such charity, one can understand reservations about limiting access to guns. What is less easily understood is the refusal of Republicans to take the reins of any given issue and do something constructive rather than invariably waiting to be forced into the ignoble position of “no.” It is one thing to be in the pocket of the National Rifle Association. It is another to do nothing and then assume a superior posture of purposeful neglect, as though do-nothingness were a policy and smug intransigence a philosophy. The steps Obama is trying to take won’t save every life, but they seem minimally intrusive and could have significant effects. Summarizing briefly, he’s clarifying existing law and more tightly defining “gun dealer” in order to impose broader background checks; upgrading technology for improved information-sharing and safer guns; increasing relevant workforces to speed up background checks; and closing loopholes that have allowed criminals to buy guns online and elsewhere with a separate set of rules. Or no rules. Giving the FBI more resources to modernize its system will help. So will giving $500 million to mental health services aimed at keeping guns away from people determined to hurt themselves or others. Requiring shippers to report stolen guns will also be helpful — and investing in smart technology could be a game changer. As Obama said, tearing up at mention of the Sandy Hook shooting that took the lives of 20 first-graders, if we can keep children from opening aspirin bottles, surely we can prevent their pulling the trigger on a gun. As to expanding background checks, only the criminal or the suicidal object to waiting a day or two before taking home a gun. What concerns most people, meanwhile, are those weapons, especially semi-automatics with large magazines, whose only purpose is to kill people. Many argue that no current law could have prevented any of the mass shootings in recent years, but is this sufficient justification for doing nothing when doing something could make a difference we may never know about — the child who didn’t die because new technology prevented him from firing a pistol? The Islamic State-inspired terrorist who didn’t murder holiday revelers because he failed an online background check? Obama’s actions won’t go unchallenged. And much political hay will be threshed, bundled and sold to Republican primary voters in the meantime. But GOP voters should be as skeptical of those ringing the gong of doom as they have been of Obama. In a civilized society, more guns can’t be better than fewer.

Charge: First step in a long process From Page A1
Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Chris Dickinson on Wednesday asked for a $500,000 arrest warrant to move Brodahl to the county jail. He’s been housed at the state psychiatric hospital for more than a dozen years. A new charge doesn’t mean Brodahl is headed to
trial anytime soon for the April 23, 2002, killing. Prosecutors must restart the competency-evaluation process. They were told that in order for a new evaluation to be done they had to refile the murder charge. A state forensic psychologist will need to determine if Brodahl can assist his lawyers and if he fully understands the
charge against him. If he doesn’t, he can be sent back to Western for restoration treatment in the hospital’s forensic ward. That hasn’t worked in the past. In 2004, doctors determined that Brodahl wasn’t competent to stand trial. Doctors found that Brodahl suffered from a mental disease but couldn’t pinpoint the problem. His heavy methamphetamine use prior to his arrest was considered a contributor to his mental illness, court papers said. Prosecutors were forced to drop the murder charge
but refiled in 2008 after learning that Western planned to release Brodahl. The charge was dismissed a year later when efforts to restore Brodahl’s competency failed. He was civilly committed to the hospital and has remained there. It’s a process Tammy Sheary can recite by heart. “I don’t believe he’s no longer a danger to the community. I believe he will always be a danger,” Sheary said. “My biggest fear is that he’ll be released and will be walking the streets in my neighborhood.” Sheary heard a few
months ago that Brodahl could be freed. She is concerned that Brodahl is being released because of the ongoing problems at Western State Hospital. The hospital has come under fire for long wait times for treatment of criminal defendants who aren’t competent to stand trial. Western is under federal monitoring to improve those wait times after losing a lawsuit in U.S. District Court. Federal inspectors in November also warned the hospital it was at risk of losing Medicare and Medicaid funding if it didn’t improve
patient safety. “I want to know this case isn’t caught up in that mess,” Sheary said. She was relieved when prosecutors told her that they were going to refile the murder charge. So much time has passed and she was worried that prosecutors would decide against reopening the case. “I can’t bring Brady back but I want justice served. He needs to go to trial for what he did to my son,” Sheary said. Diana Hefley: 425339-3463; hefley@ heraldnet.com. Twitter: @ dianahefley.
Clams: Not enough to sustain a minimum season Arrest From Page A1
The minimum length for a clam season is two weeks. There aren’t enough clams to support that long of a season at Kayak Point, according to the study. Seasons are determined by the population of Manila and native littleneck clams. At Kayak Point, where the Tulalip Tribes have fishing rights, it would be based on how many clams could be sustainably collected, divided between tribal and public harvests. The allowable harvest of clams likely would be depleted in seven or eight days, the study found. In July, 16 volunteers spent a total of 108 hours helping biologists with a population survey. They dug 104 holes along the beach and collected 368 clams that were identified, measured, weighed and then returned to their holes. Nearly 70 percent were purple varnish clams, a nonnative species. About 10 percent each were cockles or butters, 6 percent were pointed macomas and

4 percent were littlenecks, a declining native species. Manila and horse clams each made up 1 percent of the total clams collected. The littleneck population remains low while butters and cockles are more common now than in the past. For every littleneck on the beach, there are at least 15 varnish clams, based on
population estimates from the survey. The beach drew roughly 2,500 clam diggers each season in the early 1990s. They collected mostly littlenecks, butter clams, horse clams and cockles. Manila and softshell clams were not as numerous and varnish clams hadn’t established themselves yet. In the late 1990s, seasons
were shortened because of strain on the clam population. In 2001, the population dropped dramatically after a die-off attributed to freezing temperatures during extremely low tides. It’s called “winter kill.” The littleneck population especially hasn’t bounced back. Researchers suggested that strategically seeding the beach could help stabilize clam populations. One possibility would be to introduce Manila clam larvae north of the pier and some native littlenecks near the park’s southern boundary. Seeding the beach is a decision that would have to be supported by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Tulalip Tribes. Its estimated cost is about $10,000 for less than one acre. It would take a couple of years for those clams to mature, and seeding would need to be done annually to keep population numbers up. “If reopened, the park is expected to attract a large number of harvesters, which will place pressure

on not just the enhanced portion, but also the remaining native littleneck population,” according to the report. Kayak Point Park has 3,300 feet of shoreline along Port Susan with a fishing pier, nearby campsites, a playground, picnic shelters and boat launch. It’s the most visited Snohomish County park, according to the report. The Department of Fish and Wildlife has recommended that officials work on acquiring more tidelands with healthy clam populations. The Tulalip Tribes suggested introducing littleneck clam larvae at Kayak Point and other locations along Port Susan to see where the species could thrive again. Biologists want population surveys to be done periodically. The report is a guide and doesn’t change how the beach is managed. Decisions on studying, seeding or restarting clam digging would fall to the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Tulalip Tribes. Kari Bray: 425-339-3439; email@example.com.
On Tuesday, the husband called police to say he remembered the woman’s voice from the break-in. He said he had met with her at a Snohomish supermarket and that she had called him the night before the robbery. He provided police with her cellphone number. Police tracked the number to escort ads and later identified Atter through social media. A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy located the Cadillac in Arlington and contacted Lake Stevens police, who took Atter into custody. Atter said she believes the man got her name from her online ad. The investigation is continuing, Lake Stevens police said Wednesday. Anyone with information is asked to call 425-334-9537 or 425-377-3214. Eric Stevick: 425339-3446; stevick@ heraldnet.com.

Tribe: Group ‘desecrating’ land By Terrence Petty and Manuel Valdes Associated Press
BURNS, Ore. — The leader of an American Indian tribe that regards an Oregon nature preserve as sacred issued a rebuke Wednesday to the armed men who are occupying the property, saying they are not welcome at the snowy bird sanctuary and must leave. The Burns Paiute tribe was the latest group to speak out against the men, who have taken several buildings at the preserve to protest policies governing the use of federal land in the West. “The protesters have no right to this land. It belongs to the native people who live here,” tribal leader Charlotte Rodrique said. She spoke at a news conference at the tribe’s cultural center, about half-hour drive from Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which is being occupied by some 20 men led by Ammon Bundy, whose father Cliven was at the center of a standoff in Nevada with federal officials in 2014 over use of public lands. Ammon Bundy is demanding that the refuge be handed over to locals. Rodrique said she “had to laugh” at the demand, because she knew Bundy was not talking about giving the land to the tribe. The 13,700-acre Burns Paiute Reservation is north of this
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. — Randy Eardley, Bureau of Land Management spokesman
remote town in Oregon sagebrush country. The reservation is separate from the wildlife refuge, but tribal members consider it part of their ancestral land. As with other tribes, the Burns’ Paiute’s link to the land is marked by a history of conflict with white settlers and the U.S. government. In the late 1800s, they were forced off a sprawling reservation created by an 1872 treaty that was never ratified. Some later returned and purchased property in the Burns area, where about 200 tribal members now live. Bundy’s group seized buildings Saturday at the nature preserve in eastern Oregon’s high desert country. Authorities have made no attempt to remove them. The standoff in rural Oregon is a continuation of a long-running dispute over federal policies covering the use of public lands, including grazing. The federal government controls about half
of all land in the West. For example, it owns 53 percent of Oregon, 85 percent of Nevada and 66 percent of Utah, according to the Congressional Research Service. The Bundy family is among many people in the West who contend local officials could do a better job of managing public lands than federal officials. “It is our goal to get the logger back to logging, the rancher back to ranching,” Ammon Bundy said Tuesday. The argument is rejected by those who say the U.S. government is better equipped to manage public lands for all those who want to make use of them. Among those groups are Native Americans. The Burns Paiute tribe has guaranteed access to the refuge for activities that are important to their culture, including gathering a plant used for making traditional baskets and seeds that are
used for making bread. The tribe also hunts and fishes there. Rodrique said the armed occupiers are “desecrating one of our sacred sites” with their presence at refuge. Jarvis Kennedy, a tribal council member, said: “We don’t need these guys here. They need to go home and get out of here.” Randy Eardley, a Bureau of Land Management spokesman, said Bundy’s call for control of the land to be transferred makes no 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,” he 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’s group, calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, says 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 that the terms fell short of minimum sentences requiring them to serve about four more years.
Cancer not stopping piano man By C.R. Roberts The News Tribune
TACOMA — Fired in 2013 after 27 years playing piano for customers at the Tacoma Mall Nordstrom, Juan Perez began to worry. “I thought that was the end of my career playing piano,” he said in December at his home in University Place. He did not worry long, and his career has blossomed as never before. Two days after telling a News Tribune reporter that it was his dream to play at Tacoma’s upscale El Gaucho steakhouse, El Gaucho called. A week later, the Space Needle called. Perez has been playing at both venues, and at several others, ever since. He has been playing piano ever since, and even since, the cancer returned. It’s called synovial sarcoma. It’s rare, touching maybe two people in a million. Perez has said he would willingly surrender to the will of God, but he will not go quietly where this cancer would lead him. And now he doesn’t know what to do with all that money.
Co-workers respond Nordstrom had decided it would “refresh the experience,” according to a company spokeswoman in 2013. Stores, said Tara Darrow, were “moving to recorded music. It’s more modern.” The Baldwin baby grand that Perez and other pianists played would not be a part of “the evolving experience in the stores.” On that last Sunday in the store, Perez ended with “Piano Man” and “How Great Thou Art.” And “Unforgettable” was the first song he played following a five-surgeon, 10-hour surgery last July to remove a tumor tangled near his heart. A round of radiation followed surgery, and Perez has continued playing at El Gaucho, and at the Space Needle, Bellevue Square, the Bellevue Hyatt Regency, the Tacoma Yacht Club, Tacoma Golf & Country Club, the Old Cannery in Sumner and the Weatherly Inn and Narrows Glen retirement homes in Tacoma. Recently, the management and co-workers at El Gaucho decided to help Perez with medical bills and other
Whidbey NAS house fires investigated SEATTLE — Police are investigating at least three fires set at military housing units north of Seattle. KINGTV reported that authorities are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction for the arsons near Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. One of the burned housing units belonged to Naval Airman Ryan Sharland, 19, who shared it with his new wife, Shannon. They were out of town for Christmas when they learned their house was on fire. They lost nearly everything, including their two kittens. Five families were displaced in that fire, the latest in a string of arsons in the area’s military housing units. Police said they are looking into several leads and the base is increasing security. It’s unclear whether Navy families are being specifically targeted.
Settlement reached in dash-cam suit Seattle has agreed to pay more than $174,000 to KOMOTV to settle a lawsuit that claimed the Seattle Police Department violated publicrecords law by withholding dashboard-camera video requests by the station. The Seattle Times reported that the settlement, reached last month, comes after the state Supreme Court ruled in 2014 that police videos cannot be withheld unless they relate to pending litigation. That decision overturned a 2012 King County Superior Court ruling that said the video could be withheld for three years. As part of the settlement, the city will pay KOMO’s attorney fees and the case will be sent back to the lower court. The payment is not an admission of liability on the city’s part.

expenses. Management would donate half the house receipts one Sunday night, and the servers and other staff would offer all their tips. Total raised: $31,000. A co-worker established an online funding request. Total raised: Nearly $12,000 at the time this story was written. “He’s great. There’s been so much support,” said Joe Vego, El Gaucho general manager. “He’s an inspiring guy,” Vego said. “He’s great at picking music that people can connect with. He always finds a way to convey that emotion.” On that recent Sunday evening, he said, the restaurant was “standing room only. His whole family was there. The first thing Juan said was, ‘I have to go to work.’ It wasn’t about him enjoying the event — it was about him being an entertainer for others. Not himself, but for others. He’ll always be family here. Always, beyond his piano playing.” “I was shocked,” Perez said. “I did not ask for help. I did not know what to say. There were so many people.” Again he played “How Great Thou Art,” along with “Love Will Keep Us Together.” “All of a sudden, people started clapping,” he said. “It was very overwhelming,” said Susan Perez, Juan’s wife. “I really don’t know what to do with the money,” said Juan.
The mission “We’re OK. My children have good jobs,” he said. That’s 10 children, seven sons, three daughters, all graduates of Bellarmine Preparatory School. Add 11 grandchildren, with one on the way. Earlier in December, weeks after he finished that one-month course of radiation therapy, Perez turned 67. “They cannot do surgery again,” he said. “I don’t know what to plan. I cannot plan for the future. I would like to do something. You don’t know what to expect. I don’t know what we’re doing, celebrating my life. I’m confused.” The family, Susan said, regularly meets for potluck taco night and pizza night get-togethers. “They want to make time for memories,” she said. “They want him to slow down.” “My life is in God’s hands,” Perez said. “I know God has a purpose for me. My doctor doesn’t believe that I’ll live long. This is not an ordinary cancer. I keep asking him, ‘What do you think? How long will I live?’ He cannot tell me. “I believe that there is still a mission for me. I believe that I will live at least two more years. I want to use this talent that God gave me, until he calls me.” Perez intends to use the money he has been given to benefit
PETER HALEY / THE NEWS TRIBUNE
the higher mission, whatever it might be. “I already thought about buying maybe 50 blankets for the homeless and other families,” Perez said. “I called the Rescue Mission. I called other churches. What I would like to do is help high school kids, to keep young kids out of trouble. If we can start one new project for the community, I will be happy to spend this money.” Until then, the mission is the music. “Playing the piano is like therapy to me,” Perez said. “I forget that I am sick. When I play, I give my heart to the music. I offer it to God. Before I play, I practice for one hour at home. I ask the Lord what songs to play. I feel I’m trying to give a little hope if people are having are having a bad time. I think that is my duty, to entertain people. It is my duty to God and my employer. “El Gaucho, the Space Needle, they trusted me,” he said. “I give my whole best — that I can take care of the customers. My duty to God is to entertain, not to get the money. I want everybody to be happy with the music.” But for one son who is deployed with the U.S. Navy, the Perez family planned to gather together for the holiday. “I want to pass along to my children the joy I felt when I was young, especially around Christmas,” Perez said.
Nearly 400 people signed up to testify about a plan to create the nation’s largest oil transfer terminal in southwest Washington. The Columbian reported that the first of several public hearings was held Tuesday in Vancouver and lasted more than eight hours. Vancouver Energy wants to build a terminal along the Columbia River that can handle an average 360,000 barrels of crude per day. The oil would be shipped to refineries on the West Coast. Terminal opponents outnumbered supporters Tuesday. They argued that the terminal would risk life, ecology and property. Proponents of the project said it can be built safely and will provide jobs in the region. The evaluation council will make a recommendation to Gov. Jay Inslee, who has final say on the project.
Hoquiam: Proposed terminal not for crude The owner of a Grays Harbor biodiesel facility says it won’t handle crude oil as it pursues an expansion project on Washington’s coast. The project was one of three terminals proposed at the Port of Grays Harbor to bring crude oil by train from the Bakken region of North Dakota and Montana. Iowa-based Renewable Energy Group told local and state regulators it wants to expand capacity to handle bulk liquids but crude oil won’t be in the mix. REG spokesman Anthony Hulen said in an email Wednesday that the company is looking forward to producing lower carbon, renewable fuel at Grays Harbor. From Herald news services

‘The Kid’ in the Hall M’s great Ken Griffey Jr. elected to Hall of Fame with highest voting percentage in history By Bob Dutton The News Tribune
SEATTLE — The Kid’s in the Hall. Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr., the most iconic player in Mariners history, was elected Wednesday to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by a record margin in balloting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. “Happy and shocked,” he said. “Happy that I get to be in such an elite club. ... Shocked because anytime somebody else does something for you, it means a lot.” Griffey, 46, received 99.3 percent of the 440 votes cast and will be formally inducted into the game’s shrine along with catcher Mike Piazza on July 24 in a ceremony in Cooperstown, N.Y. “He was the best player in baseball,” former manager Lou Piniella recalled. “There is nothing he couldn’t do on a baseball field. And he did it so gracefully.” Tributes rolled in immediately.
MICHAEL O’LEARY / THE HERALD
Mariners outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. watches a grand slam he hit against the Tigers in 1999 at the Kingdome in Seattle. Griffey was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday.
“What I remember the most,” former teammate Edgar Martinez said, “is his talent, his great sense of humor, his personality and his love for the game. He wanted to play the game and he did it the right way, hard daily.” The balloting also provided encouragement for Martinez, another of the franchise’s cornerstones, when he jumped to 43.4 percent in his seventh year on the ballot. Martinez, 53, has three more years to reach the 75-percent threshold required for election. He tallied just 27 percent a year ago and had topped out previously at 36.5 percent in 2012. “For me, I am really encouraged, and thankful, in the increase of votes,” Martinez said. “I certainly didn’t expect to be elected today, but it is always a little disappointing when it becomes official. “Although, I’m so happy for Ken that makes it a little easier.” See GRIFFEY, Page C5

Bantam pick Onyebuchi Seahawks, Vikings expect different game this time around spending week with Tips The 6-foot-2, 190-pound 15-year-old was Everett’s third-round pick in the 2015 bantam draft as a defender.
By Nick Patterson Herald Writer
RENTON — There’s one thing the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings agree upon in advance of their wild-card playoff game Sunday in Minneapolis: Don’t expect another 38-7. Seattle had its way with the Vikings when the teams met during the regular season. However, the Seahawks don’t expect Sunday’s game to go quite so smoothly. “We were fortunate the day we played them,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “That’s not how they play. I don’t know that it could be like that, it’s going to be much different than that, I think.” It was only one month earlier that Seattle went into TCF Stadium in Minneapolis, the home of the University of Minnesota and temporary home of the Vikings, and treated Minnesota like it was an NCAA team. Seattle dominated in all facets of the game, outgaining the Vikings 433-125 and allowing no points to Minnesota’s offense — the Vikings’ lone score came on a kickoff return after the Seahawks were already leading 35-0.

things they did against us,” Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said. “They played very well in every phase against us in that game. Defensively, they got after us, offensively they got after us. It was a pretty good bout with them.” Sunday’s game is back at the scene of the carnage, and there See SEAHAWKS, Page C6
EVERETT — One of the fascinating, yet maddening facts of the WHL bantam draft is that it is based almost entirely on potential. Players are selected at age 14 or 15, but they are at least a year — and in many cases more than one — away from making a meaningful impact on the teams that select them. Teams help expedite that developmental process for their young prospects by inviting them to training camp or to join the team for brief stretches during their 15-year-old seasons, and that is exactly what defenseman Montana Onyebuchi is experiencing this week in Everett. “Every single time you can participate or witness what’s going on with the team — see a game live, practice in an
environment like this, be in on some of the meetings — it speeds your development and is really helpful,” Silvertips head coach Kevin Constantine said. “Every one of those is going to make your ability to get into this league and be effective earlier than later. Every one is a growth experience.” Onyebuchi was the Silvertips’ third-round bantam pick and the 63rd player taken overall in the 2015 bantam draft. The Manitoba native is spending this week practicing with the Tips for his first extended time with the organization since the end of training camp. Onyebuchi is playing this season with the Eastman Selects of the Manitoba Midget AAA League. The Selects competed at the prestigious Mac’s Tournament last week in Calgary, and Onyebuchi met up with the Silvertips in Kamloops following the tournament to spend the week in Everett. “The guys are great, the coaches are good. The practices are good and I’m having a good time,” Onyebuchi said. “The See SILVERTIPS, Page C2

release Monday from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife read: “State shellfish managers have approved razor clam digs starting later this week at Long Beach and Copalis Beach. WDFW confirmed the digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams on those two beaches are safe to eat. All other beaches remain closed to recreational razor clam digging. Digs at both beaches are on evening tides and include a two-day opening, Jan. 8-9 at Copalis and an eight-day dig, Jan. 7-14 at Long Beach.” Ho hum. Another razor clam opening. Does it matter? Yeah, it sure does. Just look at the numbers. The 2014-15 winter season was a very good one, except that an increasing level of domoic acid in the clams forced closure in late April and the loss of digging days planned for May, the last month of the season. An estimated 399,700 digger trips took place during the abbreviated series of digs, and if you add 90,000 for the 10 days of digging that didn’t take place in May, you find that the four Pacific beaches (Kalaloch remained closed) hosted just under a halfmillion digger trips on their 58 miles of prime clam habitat. A half-million. That’s a bunch of folks, and there aren’t many outdoor activities in the state that pull a larger crowd over a five-month period. The popular New Year’s Eve dig alone drew more than 45,000 digger trips. Razor clam diggers form about the only economic factor keeping alive a number of small beach communities during the winter months. It’s an activity that draws a lot of family groups (the beach is a natural for kids and dogs), and that can only be a good thing. Cold? Windy? Sure, a lot of the time, but if you prepare properly, the ocean in winter has its own unique attraction. And, hey — it’s a good alternative when the steelhead rivers are out, the blackmouth have lockjaw and the ducks

speed is a factor. It’s so much faster. There are bigger guys and the coaches expect more.” At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds Onyebuchi doesn’t look out of place in the slightest while skating with the Silvertips. Perhaps
With heavy snow pushing and alfalfa hay pulling, hundreds of elk and big-horn sheep are coming down from the high country to dine at the Oak Creek Wildlife Area and other Department of Fish and Wildlife winter feeding operations on the east slope of the Cascades. “Storms are moving the animals down a lot earlier than last year,” wildlife area manager Ross Huffman said. “People, including whole families, come back year after year to see our winter spectacle.” Truck tours will begin shortly, Huffman said, but visitors can get a good view of the elk from the parking lot. Binoculars are recom-
aren’t flying. Last season featured more digging days than most years, especially at Long Beach and Twin Harbors, which saw the largest number of open days in 25 years. Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager in Montesano, said Long Beach produced the most clams per person during the 2014-15 dig, at 14.8 (15 is the daily limit), followed by Twin Harbors at 14.4, Mocrocks at 14.2, and Copalis at 13.7. Ayres said Copalis was the most popular beach, perhaps because of easier access to a larger range of food and accommodations. Copalis Beach runs from the Grays Harbor north jetty at Ocean Shores, north about 9 miles to the mouth of the Copalis River. Ayres said this winter’s first dig, over the Christmas holiday at Copalis Beach only, “was a huge success, with most diggers filling their limits.” The clams weren’t particularly large, averaging about 4.5 inches, but Ayres said there was a pretty good percentage of bigger clams. The largest clams on the upcoming dig likely will be found on the north half of Long Beach. “In the past, the only decent digging on Long Beach was up toward the north end,” Ayres said, “but clams now are well scattered over the entire beach.” Tides for the upcoming dig are as follows: today, low at 4:57 p.m., plus 0.1 feet; Friday, 5:37 p.m., minus 0.4 feet; Saturday, 6:16 p.m., minus 0.8 feet; Sunday, 6:55 p.m., minus 1.0 feet; Monday, 7:34 p.m., minus 1.0 feet; Tuesday, 8:14 p.m., minus 0.8 feet; Jan. 13, 8:56 p.m., minus 0.4 feet, and Jan 14, 9:40 p.m.,
the only giveaway is the full cage enclosure attached to his helmet that guards his face. The Silvertips remain enamored with Onyebuchi’s physical stature that complements his skill set. “We saw a big body that skates pretty well and uses his size,” Constantine said. “We just don’t have a lot of that. We don’t have a lot of big-bodied players. I think you can play the game well with any size, but if you can do things skill-wise well, the bigger your body the better.” Onyebuchi says he isn’t scared to use his size, and didn’t show any qualms about mixing it up along the boards with his older teammates during Tuesday’s ice session. “I throw my body around a

plus 0.2 feet. All diggers 15 or older must have an applicable 2015-16 fishing license to harvest razor clams. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw. wa.gov, and from license vendors around the state.

Local blackmouth “Local chinook fishing picked up any?” was the question. And the succinct answer from All Star Charters skipper/owner Gary Krein, was “No.” That about says it all for Marine Areas 8-1 and 8-2, except that Krein’s other skipper, Nick Kester, took a just-legal blackmouth off Columbia Beach on Monday, his only legal fish in three trips. A 16-pounder also was reported from Elger Bay on Saturday. The San Juan Islands continue to produce at least fair fishing, probably the place to be if you’re serious about catching winter blackmouth right now. Marine Area 9, including Possession Bar, may open on Jan. 16, but not necessarily. “The state has a phone conference set up for the 12th, Krein said, “and we should find out then whether it’s a go or not.” If state salmon managers decide not to open area 9, it would probably be because of incidental mortality on sublegal wild-stock fish, or other unacceptable impacts on endangered wild chinook, “I think it will probably open,” Krein, a long-time local salmon activist, said, “because their test boats aren’t catching any fish in the area. Isn’t that a ridiculous system? It used to be we would go where the fish were; now we have to go where they aren’t.”

The guest speaker will be Tom Nelson from “The Outdoor Line” on 710 ESPN radio. The public is welcome. For more information, call Ralph at 360653-3894. Items for the Outdoor Calendar can be submitted by e-mail (sports@heraldnet. com), by fax (425-3393435) or by mail (P.O. Box 930, Everett, Wash.). The deadline is noon Monday. State creel checks for Saturday included the Bellingham ramp, where 37 fishermen had 18 blackmouth; the Camano State Park ramp, where 33 anglers had three fish; Washington Park ramp in Anacortes, 76 with 11; Cornet Bay ramp, 26 with six; and the Port of Everett ramp, 27 fishermen with one blackmouth.
Ice fishing Neither of two popular ice fishing lakes, Potholes Reservoir or Fish Lake near Lake Wenatchee, have enough ice to support a safe fishery. Four fishermen in fact got wet and cold, but not worse, when they went through the ice on Fish Lake last week, according to a local resident. Call MarDon Resort on the reservoir for current information (800-416-2736).
Short brant season The state announced Tuesday a short season for brant, a small seagoose, after counts of the birds in Skagit County indicated their numbers were below the level needed for a full season. The hunt takes place Jan. 9, 13 and 16. “The number of hunting days depends on how many brant are counted during aerial surveys,” said Don Kraege, the state’s waterfowl manager. “Two surveys of Padilla, Samish and Fidalgo bays each had counts of less than 6,000 birds, the number needed for a full season.” In recent years, a full season meant eight hunting days, although bird counts haven’t supported that many days in the field since 2013, Kraege said. Last year, a low count of about 3,600 brant resulted in cancellation of the hunt in Skagit County. Kraege said brant hunts have been restricted since the 1970s to conserve the limited population of Western High Arctic brant that winter in the area.

to play in up to five games with their WHL teams prior to their midget seasons ending. There is precedent for the Silvertips playing 15-year-olds when the situation warrants it. Former Tip Janzten Leslie played in six games during the team’s Eastern Division swing as a 15-year-old last season and also appeared in six playoff games. Current Tips Noah Juulsen, Matt Fonteyne and Kevin Davis saw time on the ice as 15-year-olds three seasons ago. However, due to Everett’s relatively healthy defensive corps, Constantine doesn’t expect Onyebuchi to play this weekend before he heads back to Manitoba. But Onyebuchi could potentially return later in the regular season or if the Tips make an extended playoff run. “For only being 15 at this time I think what he does is pretty darn good,” Constantine said. “We have high hopes where he might end up with us over the course of time with us.” For the latest Silvertips news follow Jesse Geleynse on Twitter @jessegeleynse.

Payton says he’ll remain Saints’ coach Associated Press METAIRIE, La. — Saints coach Sean Payton smiled often and answered questions for a full hour while Saints owner Tom Benson and general manager Mickey Loomis looked on from a few feet away. More introspective, laid back and talkative than usual, Payton appeared refreshed and eager to begin a second decade in New Orleans. Seeking to end speculation that he could be on the move after
consecutive 7-9 seasons, Payton asserted on Wednesday that he doesn’t envision himself “ever coaching for any other clubs.”
Buccaneers fire Smith TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired coach Lovie Smith on Wednesday night. Smith went 6-10 this season and 8-24 over two years in charge of the team. Smith led the Chicago Bears to the NFC title in 2006, when they lost to Indianapolis in the Super Bowl. He was 84-66 in nine seasons with Chicago.

Edmonds-Woodway’s Mady Burdett is surrounded by four Arlington defenders during Wednesday night’s game.
Arlington tops Edmonds-Woodway By Aaron Lommers
throughout the contest. She finished with a game-high 16 points and had several steals on defense that led to easy points for Arlington. “She’s just fearless,” Marsh said of Balderas. “She’s a warrior. She comes out every night. She hits that three and you know when she hits one early I’m like ‘OK, here we go. Let’s see what happens.’ She’s not afraid to shoot it and she plays great defense and she just has a great attitude. She’s kind of representative of what we do. She’s all over the floor. She’s the smallest kid on the floor and she’s been that way her whole life, but she doesn’t care. She just goes out and fights. She had a great game tonight and just really sparked are energy.” Balderas is listed on the roster as exactly 5-feet tall, which is at least three inches shorter than any other player on the Arlington or the Edmonds-Woodway roster. Balderas and her teammates have embraced the defense-first philosophy Marsh has instilled over the past several seasons. “We have a lot of short people on our team, so we try to use it to our advantage,” Balderas said. “We just try to get up in people and make
EDMONDS — The Arlington Eagles shook off a sluggish start in Wednesday’s game against EdmondsWoodway to prove why they earned the No. 3 ranking in the state’s first 3A Associated Press girls basketball poll of the season, which was released earlier in the day. The Eagles fell behind 6-0 early, but answered with a 12-0 run and never trailed again in a 58-44 victory over the Warriors. “That happens sometimes,” Arlington head coach Joe Marsh said of the slow start. “I wasn’t really worried about it. It’s early in the game. We came right back and got a couple of buckets and then it’s a ball game. ... They came out quick and they hit some shots. The reality is, that’s going to happen to you sometimes.” The Eagles scored their first points of the game on a 3-pointer by senior Serafina Balderas with 4 minutes, 55 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Less than a minute later, Arlington took the lead for good. Balderas was the spark for the Eagles on both ends of the floor
them uncomfortable. Once we get those steals we’re looking down the court and getting those into offensive points for us.” The Warriors had scored 60 or more in five of their first 10 games and hadn’t scored less than 48 so far this season until the Eagles held them to 44 on Wednesday. “If I can hold that team with all of those weapons to 44 points, we’re really happy with that,” Marsh said. “We had great effort. We’ve had great effort from kids all year. Kids are coming off the bench and playing the same kind of defense (as the starters), it’s been nice. It was a good one tonight.” The Eagles led 29-17 at the half, but used a 23-10 run to open the fourth quarter to put the game away. “In the locker room we said the first four minutes of the (second) half were really important,” Marsh said. “Last year, in two games, we were up 10 on them coming out of halftime and they came right back at us and we didn’t want that to happen this year, so were really put an emphasis on playing great defense and getting some stops early and we did that. We got some stops and buckets and we stretched it out.”

Griffey From Page C1
The day certainly belonged to Griffey, who broke the record for the highest percentage received in BBWAA balloting. Pitcher Tom Seaver held the previous record at 98.84 percent in 1992. Piazza won election by garnering 83.0 percent of the votes in his fourth year on the ballot. First baseman Jeff Bagwell (71.6 percent) and Tim Raines (69.6 percent) were the nearest-misses. Griffey dismissed any suggestion of disappointment in failing to be a unanimous selection. “I can’t be upset,” he said. “It’s truly an honor to be elected. To have the highest percentage is definitely a shock. The big thing is to get into the Hall of Fame. As long as you get in, that’s what it is.”
Griffey also became the first player elected primarily for his achievements while playing for the Mariners. He spent 13 of his 22 seasons in Seattle before retiring in June 2010. “Whenever we needed something done on the field to win a ballgame,” former teammate Dan Wilson said, “Junior was the guy to do it. “Whether it was a game-winning home run or a game-saving circus catch in the outfield, Junior always delivered. He is undoubtedly the most influential player in Mariners history.” Long-time Mariners ace Randy Johnson was elected last season, but his plaque at the Hall depicts him in an Arizona cap. While Griffey spent eight-plus seasons in Cincinnati and part of one season with the Chicago White Sox, there seems little doubt the cap on his plaque will have a Mariners logo. The only real question is
whether that cap, in typical Griffey exuberance, will be worn backward. “He’s a superstar,” former teammate Ichiro Suzuki said, “and not just because of his numbers and his stats, but because of his personality. He was about caring for each other. “It’s something we all need to learn from him, and it’s what makes him better than a superstar.” Griffey achieved that status in Seattle. It was here that he hit 417 of his 630 career home runs and won all four of his league homerun titles. His time with the Mariners included his only Most Valuable Player award, 10 of his 13 All-Star selections, all 10 of his Gold Glove awards and all seven of his Silver Slugger awards. “We love Ken Griffey Jr. because he is everything we would like to be,” Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson once said. “He’s

Other site improvements include re-designed vehicular access/circulation, parking areas and landscaping. Student drop-off/pick-up area will be relocated to the west side of the school and bus access will be moved to the north side of the school.

Construction will begin June 2016 and will be completed in phases until final completion in September 2018. The school will be occupied during construction.

son developed a preference for wearing his cap backward. “When Junior would come into the (Reds’) clubhouse (in the 1970s),” Griffey Sr. recalled, “he would always come and get my hat. “My hat was bigger than his head, so it would fall down over (his eyes) and he could never see when he was catching or throwing. “So he just decided to turn it around and put it on backwards. He got used to doing that. He would turn it around backwards to play catch.” Junior reached the big leagues in 1989 at age 19 and quickly became a fan favorite far beyond the Pacific Northwest. His fivetool skills came spiced with a sweet left-handed swing and a killer smile wrapped in youthful joy. “As long as I have fun playing,” Griffey once said, “the stats will take care of themselves.”

RENTON — Early indications suggest Beast Mode will be back in business Sunday. Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch returned to practice Wednesday, and after getting their first look at Lynch in seven weeks, the Seahawks were optimistic they’ll have him back for Sunday’s NFC wild-card playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings. “He looked good,” Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said of Lynch following Wednesday’s practice at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. “It’s good to have him back out there. We’ll take it a day at a time and see if he continues to move through the week. We’re looking forward to having him.” Lynch, Seattle’s star ball carrier, missed the previous seven games because of an abdominal injury. He underwent surgery Nov. 27 to repair the problem. Lynch hadn’t practiced since, and the Seahawks
carries in his first seven games. Since then, the Seahawks’ offense has been led by quarterback Russell Wilson, who put up historic numbers while Lynch was out, throwing for 24 touchdowns with just one interception in the seven games Lynch missed. Nevertheless, Seahawks assistant head coach/ offensive line coach Tom Cable, who coordinates Seattle’s run game, said Lynch has eased seamlessly back into the offense. “He’s been fantastic,” Cable said. “Exactly what we said, he’s adapted very well. I think he’s done a great job of recognizing where this team is at and its vibe. He’s come in and went right back to work, and it’s been really great.” Seattle’s running game did not suffer in Lynch’s absence, averaging 148.1 yards per game in the seven contests Lynch missed. Christine Michael led the way among Seattle’s running backs the past three weeks, picking up 192 yards on 39 carries.
Whole flock returns Lynch isn’t the only Se-

ahawk who returned to practice from injury. In fact a whole slew of players who have been out injured were back on the field Wednesday. Strong safety Kam Chancellor, who missed the previous three games because of a bruised tailbone, practiced in full. Chancellor returned to practice last week and was close to returning, but ended up sitting out Sunday’s 36-6 victory at Arizona. Also back at practice were tackle Russell Okung (calf), guard J.R. Sweezy (concussion) and tight end Luke Willson (concussion), who were unable to practice last week and sat out Sunday. Cornerback Jeremy Lane (oblique), who left Sunday’s game injured, also was back at practice. All four participated in a limited capacity, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said they all should be able to make it back for this week’s game.
Lockett honored Seattle receiver Tyler Lockett was honored by the NFL on Wednesday as the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 17. Lockett set a Seahawks franchise record for punt-return yardage in a game when he returned four punts for 139 yards Sunday against Arizona. Lockett had returns of 66, 42 and 31 yards as he broke the previous franchise record of 106 yards set by Charlie Rogers in 1999.

SEAHAWK POSTERS ARE BACK!
Seahawks optimistic Lynch will play Sunday weren’t able to monitor Lynch’s rehabilitation as Lynch did his rehab in San Francisco. But Lynch returned to the Seahawks’ facility Monday, and he was a full participant in practice Wednesday, suggesting he may be able not only to return to the field when Seattle plays at Minnesota on Sunday, but also handle a full workload. “If he’s going, that’s what I would expect,” Bevell said when asked if it was realistic for Lynch to carry the ball 20-25 times Sunday. “I expect him to be full-go, full-speed, and just be like we normally are.” What’s normal for the Seahawks’ offense has changed since Lynch went down. Seattle has been a run-first team since Lynch arrived via trade with Buffalo midway through the 2010 season. In his six seasons with the Seahawks, Lynch has rushed for 6,347 yards and 57 touchdowns on 1,457 carries. However, Lynch dealt with nagging injuries early in the season, managing just 417 yards on 111

Seahawks From Page C1
are many who expect Sunday’s contest to play out much like the Week 13 meeting did. Just don’t count the Seahawks and Vikings among those numbers. “Obviously every team is different from that point,” Vikings free safety Harrison Smith said. “I think we just kept getting better. We’ve still had games that we didn’t play great in, but we’ve learned from each week, and we’ve gotten a few guys back from getting banged up. We’re excited about where we are and what’s in front of us, but we have a lot of work to do before Sunday.” One of the big differences this time around is Minnesota will be much closer to full strength defensively. In the first meeting, nose tackle Linval Joseph and strong safety Andrew Sendejo sat out because of injuries, while Smith and linebacker Anthony Barr both departed during the first quarter and did not return. Those are four of Minnesota’s best defensive players, and without them the Seahawks eviscerated a Vikings defense that came into the game ranked second in the NFL in fewest points allowed. However, Sendejo, Barr and Smith have all since returned, and Joseph was back at practice Wednesday in a limited capacity and could play Sunday. Having those players back will make the task much more difficult for Seattle’s offense. “When you’re missing three starters, it has an effect on any team,” Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. “Those are some really solid players for them. They really missed Smith in the back end. He’s really a nice ball hawk, he searches for the ball, he has great ball
skills, plays from sideline to sideline, so he makes a lot of nice plays for them. Barr is really their leader in the linebacking core, so you’re going to miss guys like those guys. It has an impact on their defense.” The other thing that will likely look different this time around is Minnesota’s use of Adrian Peterson. Peterson just won his third NFL rushing title, finishing the season with 1,485 yards on 327 carries. However, against Seattle Peterson managed just 18 yards on eight carries as Minnesota found itself in an early hole and was forced to abandon the running game. The eight carries were Peterson’s fewest in a game this season, and the 18 yards were the third fewest in Peterson’s nine-year career. The Seahawks are certain the Vikings won’t allow Peterson’s presence to be removed from the game so easily in the second go-around. “I expect them to run the ball way more than they did last time,” Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “Having a guy like Adrian Peterson touch the ball eight times, I don’t think that’s going to happen twice. They’ll give him the ball more.” “They’re just a really good football team and you better play good on the day you play them or they’re going to get you,” Carroll added. “Last week they played a very conservative game against Green Bay and waited for their opportunities, cashed in on the turnovers, and put together a fantastic championship game. That always concerns me a lot because they’re not giving you a lot of opportunities to do things.” The Seahawks took advantage of every opportunity they had the previous time they played the Vikings. They’ll need to do the same Sunday to come out of Minnesota with another victory.

A succulent feast
The high-style, easy-care plants are showing up everywhere By Teresa Woodard Chicago Tribune
Take a look around Bill Hendricks’ collection of 4,000 succulents, and it’s easy to understand the recent craze for these high-style, easy-care plants. Ones with rosette shapes are taking center stage in container designs and bridal bouquets. More architectural forms are becoming the go-to accessory for today’s mantels and tabletops. And still other strappy types are being tucked in living walls, galvanized frames, topiary forms, birch logs, thrift-store stilettos, vintage spice tins, fairy gardens, green rooftops and even doghouse tops. What trendy homeowners are now discovering, the 72-year-old Hendricks
has known for decades. “I’ve always been fascinated with succulents,” he said. “I’m fascinated by their diversity, their color and ‘wow,’ and their stories from different places all over the world.” At age 7, Hendricks says, he bought his first succulent, a thick-leaved aloe plant, at a Cleveland dime store. He credits that still-living aloe plant with spurring his lifelong love of plants and leading him to a successful career in the nursery business. Today, he is president of the 500-acre Klyn Nurseries, a wholesale nursery in Perry, Ohio, and was named 2014 Grower of the Year by Nursery Management magazine. While his nursery grows 1,850 species of landscape plants, Hendricks says, he keeps
the succulents as a hobby. “I’m not into sports; I’m into plants,” Hendricks said. “That led me to an interest in geography and travel. So when I travel, I travel to see plants.” Hendricks explains that all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Succulents are plants that have the ability to store water within their leaves, stems or roots. These adaptations allow the plants to survive long stretches without water. (Cacti, on the other hand, are a distinct family of succulents and are distinguished by their signature spines.) Today, Hendricks grows succulents and cacti in a 100-by-30-foot greenhouse at Klyn Nurseries. All are meticulously labeled and grown
mostly in clay pots packed onto raised tables, with a few hanging from containers.
Growing tips Hendricks, who is president of the Midwest Cactus and Succulent Society and a frequent lecturer on succulents, offers advice on growing succulents. He not only draws lessons from personal experience but also his library of some 2,000 succulent articles and books: ■■Plant succulents in containers with drainage holes. If there are no holes, add some with a drill or use a liner pot with holes. See SUCCULENTS, Page D3

Spindles boost value of Windsor chair T KOVELS
This comb-back Windsor chair was made in Pennsylvania in the late 18th century. It auctioned in 2015 for $1,003 even though it had some breaks in the wood and added metal braces that were used for repairs.
he Windsor chair was first made in the late 17th century in England and about 1730 in America. The chairs are similar, but the English chair legs are less splayed and only the English chair has a splat (a shaped piece of wood) as part of the back. American chairs are made with spindles for the back and to hold the arms. There are many kinds of Windsor chairs with descriptive names like brace back, hoop back, arrow back, fanback, bow back, low back, comb back and scroll back. And some have added parts like rockers or writing arms. Early chairs usually were painted because several types of wood were used. “Brown furniture” from the 18th and 19th centuries

is selling for low prices today. The best have original paint, but watch out for repaints. The chair with a nine-spindle back probably is older than one with four spindles. The more spindles on an antique Windsor, the earlier and better the chair. Brunk Auctions in Asheville, North Carolina sold a comb-back Windsor with some repairs in 2015 for $1,003. Q: I’m hoping you can shed some light on a floor lamp I have. The base is stamped “Miller Company” and one of the parts is stamped “Miller U-Dezine.” The base and column are made of pot metal or bronze. Can you give me any information about this lamp and its maker? A: Edward Miller founded this
lamp company in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1844. Candlesticks, lamps and other products were made. A metal rolling mill was built later. A 1930 ad for Miller’s “U-De-Zine” read “You design the lamp you want,” and called it “The Lamp That Is Made In Separate Parts For You To Put Together.” There were several ways to assemble the parts. A table lamp could be changed to a floor lamp, or a floor lamp to a bridge lamp. In 1985, the lighting division was sold. The company was bought by an affiliate of Diehl Metall, a German company in 2000. Q: My Lane cedar chest pictures Molly Pitcher firing her husband’s cannon after he

collapsed. The serial number is 2575150. Can you tell me when it was made? A: You can find out when your Lane chest was made by reversing the serial number. Your chest was made on May 15, 1975 (05/15/75) at factory No. 2. Lane cedar chests made before 1987 have the old style locks that can latch shut and trap a child inside.

What to do in your garden for January Y
up it’s time again for my monthly checklist. I know what you’re thinking: Can’t this guy just kick back for a month and give us a break? No need to get too worried. January is a pretty laid back month for the garden. Here are some thoughts to ponder: Visit a garden center this month. It always amazes me how fast the nursery fills up with plant material in January. Long before the average northwest gardener gets into gear, garden centers are receiving new stock. By
STEVE SMITH THE WHISTLING GARDENER the middle of January, we have potted more than a thousand new roses as well as hundreds of trees, berry plants and hardy vegetables such as rhubarb and asparagus, all of which can actually be planted in
the garden this month. In our mild maritime climate, we plant nearly all year, as long as it is above freezing and the ground isn’t saturated. Examine your garden for pests. This is a good time to wander through the garden looking for tent caterpillar egg cases. They look like small ½-inch gray globs of Styrofoam attached to the limbs. You can rub a few off with your fingers but if you see lots of them then you will need to apply a dormant spray. Copper and oil mixed together will do a good
keep a journal, which is one of those resolutions that “real gardeners” never quite get to. Do some indoor gardening. If your house still smells like Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham then consider bringing in a few house plants. They are the consummate living air freshener. Keep them as close to the windows as possible and don’t overfeed or overwater them until you see signs of new growth in the spring. Get ready to prune. It’s that time of year to tackle the pruning chores.
Consider attending our pruning class at 10 a.m. Jan. 9 at Sunnyside Nursery, 3915 Sunnyside Blvd., Marysville. We will offer this class again Jan. 23. Finally, get excited. This coming season should be a dandy. The drought is over so we can repair any damage from the long hot summer and plant like a maniac. I don’t know about you, but my fingers are already starting to itch. Steve Smith is owner of Sunnyside Nursery in Marysville and can be reached online at info@ sunnysidenursery.net.

Lawson False Cypress grows best in full sun.
What: Lawson False Cypress ( Chamaecyparis lawsonia) is an evergreen tree of extraordinary beauty. Its flat blue-green foliage seems to reach upward, creating a tree with a very thick but soft appearance. Some of the blue color appears whitish-gray, which gives the illusion of snow. Its bark is reddish brown and it produces both male and female flowers on the
job of suffocating the eggs and controlling fungus problems without causing collateral damage to the rest of the garden. Plan, plan, plan. This is when seed, bulb and plant catalogs come in the mail by the truckload. When you do visit a nursery, don’t hesitate to bring that “want list,” inspired by the catalogs, with you.

What to do before installing a floating floor
Practical, esthetic and economical, floating floors are an extremely popular option with many homeowners. You’d like to use this type of flooring in your home? Read on.
JANUARY UPDATE YOUR HOME WITH NEW FLOORS! Choose a good quality-floating floor, especially if you plan on installing it in a busy area.
Quality counts When buying a floating floor, choose a good quality product, especially if you want to put it in a busy area such as a hallway. Damage to a single board could require you to completely remove your floor in order to install just one new plank. Unpack and wait Once you have purchased your flooring, place the boards in the room where they are to be installed. Open the packaging and wait at least three days. The reason? The wood will have time to adapt to the temperature and humidity of the room, making it easier to install. That said, floating floors are not recommended for high humidity areas such as basements.
Prepare the surface After removing the existing flooring and the baseboards, trim the bottom of the doorframe. Using a saw, remove the equivalent of the thickness of your new floor plus an extra 1/16 inch. Then install the subfloor membrane according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Now you’re ready to install the flooring.
Use a professional renovator if you’re not used to doing this kind of manual work. They have the necessary experience and equipment to install your floating floor properly.

Steps you can take to save energy costs By Alan J. Heavens
The Philadelphia Inquirer
Where does the time go? Just when you finally get the central air-conditioning working well enough to make the house comfortable, cold weather shows up and settles in to stay. Here are some ideas that might help cut your energy costs this winter, courtesy of Sunnova, the solarpower company:
Hot water: Does your house really need hot water when no one’s home? Probably not. Consider installing a timer on your water heater, to turn it off when you’re not there. Use cold water instead of hot when washing clothes. The EPA’s Energy Star program says almost 90 percent of the energy consumed by washing machines goes to heating the water.
Electronics: Put electronics — your computer, for example — in sleep or hibernation mode when you’re not using them. Unplug certain electronics and appliances to avoid their consuming “phantom power,” which means they’re still sucking in energy from the outlet even though they aren’t in use. Cooking: Cut as much as 50 percent of energy consumed to prepare a meal
by putting a slow cooker and microwave to work, rather than a range and oven. If you are going to use the stovetop, match the pan size to the diameter of the heating element, to eliminate wasted heat. A 6-inch pan on an 8-inch burner can waste more than 40 percent of the energy delivered by the appliance. To improve refrigerator

BILL HENDRICKS / KLYN NURSERIES / TNS
Bill Hendricks, owner of Klyn Nurseries in Ohio, was named 2014 Grower of the Year by Nursery Management Magazine. He sells hundreds of varieties of plants, but succulents are his real passion. “I’m fascinated by their diversity, their color and ‘wow,’ and their stories from different places all over the world.”
Succulents: Watch water From Page D1
■ Water succulents thoroughly. Try placing a succulent pot in the sink and drenching it until water runs out the bottom. Let the pot thoroughly drain, then return it to its saucer on a windowsill. ■ Allow plants to dry out between waterings. Succulents prefer neglect, and one of the biggest mistakes made by beginners is overwatering them. ■ Choose a well-draining potting mix. Look for a cactus potting mix or create your own mix with equal parts of potting soil, pea gravel and coarse sand. ■ Give succulents as much sunlight as possible since most are sun lovers. A south- or eastern-facing window is ideal. ■ Occasionally trim succulents to maintain a shape, clip away damaged
leaves or clean up dried tips. ■ In northern climates, keep succulents in a dry, indoor environment for the winter, then move outdoors for the summer. In southern climates, many succulents thrive outdoors year-round. ■ Take a class at a garden center or public botanical garden. Many popular classes cover how to use succulents to create wreaths, vertical gardens, and terrariums or dish gardens. ■ Join a local cactus or succulent society. For a listing, see the Cactus & Succulent Society of America’s website, www.cssainc.org.
Succulents ideas ■ You’ll find succulents at garden centers, botanical garden gift shops, big-box stores and succulent society plant sales. Also, many online sites specialize in

succulents. For newbies, Hendricks suggests the following: ■ Aeonium: Enjoy these showy rosettes in green or dark burgundy. ■ Aloe: Find variegated or textured varieties for something new. ■ Crassula: Try jade plants or stacked varieties. ■ Echeveria: Look for ones with fuzzy, ruffled and bordered leaves. ■ Haworthia: Remember these aloelike miniatures for low-light conditions. ■ Lobivia: Marvel at the vivid flowers of this easyto-grow cactus. ■ Mammillaria: Try one of the white-haired pincushion cacti. ■ Notocactus: Never fail with one of these globular cacti. ■ Rebutia: Count on these small, round cacti for their colorful blooms. ■ Schlumbergera truncata: Celebrate the holidays with this Christmas cactus.
Q: I have a Stereo Realist viewer in a green case that’s 14 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 2 inches deep. It has two snaps to keep it closed. What is it worth? A: The Stereo Realist was made from 1947 until 1972. It was designed by Seton Rochwite, who worked for the David White Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The camera originally sold for $160 and the viewer for $20. Stereo Realist viewers sell online today for $40 and more. Q: While going through my 93-year-old mother’s things, I found two teaspoons, one with Gloria Swanson’s picture and signature and another with Norma Talmadge. Both are in good shape. Do they have any value? A: Souvenir spoons were popular collectibles from the 1890s into the 1920s. Your spoons are two of a set of 12 silverplated spoons featuring silent film stars of the day. They were made by Oneida Silversmiths for Hearst Newspapers, and used in a 1925 advertising campaign in Photoplay, one of the first American film fan magazines. Each spoon has a facsimile signature of an actor or actress on the handle and a raised portrait on the tip. Besides your two, other stars represented were Marion Davies, Richard Dix, Douglas Fairbanks, Thomas Meighan, Mae Murray, Pola Negri, Ramon Novarro, Mary Pickford, Norma Shearer and Lois Wilson. Oneida was formed as a utopian community in the mid19th century. In 1879, conflicts caused a split
efficiency, consider one with a bottom freezer, keep the fridge between 36 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit and the freezer between zero and 5 degrees, and be sure to defrost ice build-up thicker than 0.25 inches. Heat smart: Sunnova recommends a home assessment to determine whether your house is properly insulated and to make certain air isn’t
escaping. It’s also important to keep doors closed and to heat only rooms where you need it. Depending on the type, a home’s heating system can use anywhere from 100 kWh to 3,500 kWh each month. Minimize usage by regularly replacing filters, insulating ducts, and considering a programmable thermostat that will help heat only when and where needed.

Oneida still is one of the largest marketers of stainless-steel flatware and tabletop products. Your spoons sell for $5 to $15 each. A complete set may add a little to the value. Q: How can I sell a collection of wooden hangers from different California dry cleaners? There are 247 hangers from the 1920s and ’30s. A: They might sell at an advertising sales as a lot rather than individually. Vintage wooden hangers sell online, but you probably would have better luck at an advertising show or sale. If you’re lucky, you might be able to get $5 apiece for them.
Q: I’d like to know the value of a carved-wood picture of Heidelberg Castle and the old bridge over the Neckar River in Germany. The roofs of the buildings are painted red. On the lower corner it reads “Carved by R. Bergner” and “7964.” I bought it at a garage sale. A: R. Bergner did carved- and burnt-wood pictures in the 1950s. The number on your picture probably indicates that it was part of a “limited edition.” A picture similar to yours, numbered 7955, sold recently for $40. Other burnt-wood pictures by Bergner have sold for $30. Write to Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel at Kovels, The Herald, King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019.

Put effort into making new friendships
Adapted from a recent online discussion. Dear Carolyn: I’ve been friends with someone since grade school. I’d like to talk to her more except, about half the time I text her, I don’t get a reply. She said she’s too busy for phone calls. We meet occasionally at her convenience. I’d like to ask about clarifying our relationship. I see posts on Facebook about conversations or outings with other people that she never has time for with me. We live about five minutes apart. Last time we talked she said she’d be up for coffee soon (two months ago) and asked me to be patient about her not having time to do stuff. She’s one of the few “friends” I actually have, period. I’m not sure what to do. I find it depressing to have so few people to talk to, and when one of those few ignores me, I’m not sure it’s worth the emotional upheaval. — Friendship Over? Please turn whatever energy you’re putting into this issue toward a patient, planned effort to make new friends. An abbreviated list of ways to do that: adopt a hobby, join a team, volunteer somewhere regularly, take a class, find Meetups, arrange events with old friends and ask them to bring

Re: Friendship Over? I’m an introvert and I am endlessly puzzled how some people can just walk into a room and walk out with two or three new friends, while I can have enjoyable social interactions that rarely go beyond the occasion. (I’m OK with that because having too many friends and too many social obligations is mentally wearing on me.) I sometimes wonder(ed) if I’m a freak. This made me feel better. — Anonymous 2 Glad to help. If it weren’t for outgoing people, I’d never talk to anyone. Washington Post Writers Group

have time for other people, perhaps those conversations are more rewarding for her. — Anonymous It is worth a think, thank you. Complainers often don’t hear themselves. Sometimes it is something we do or say or a way we do or say it, and cultivating good listening skills and a positive attitude is worth the effort even if the effort doesn’t yield a pack of new friends. Often, though, it’s just a story of an outgoing person collecting friends and a quieter person struggling to make connections. This friendship may have run its course. Most childhood ones do.

Husband’s soccer injuries hurt family Dear Abby: My husband, an avid soccer player, injured himself twice last year, which left him unable to work for months at a time. He refuses to hang up his cleats because he says it’s his “one true passion.” I think he’s being selfish because his soccer injuries have caused a financial, emotional and physical strain on our family. I can’t be the only wife/ mom who doesn’t want the additional risk. — Sports Wife In Cleveland Dear Sports Wife: I don’t know how old your husband is, but two serious injuries in one year may be a hint from Father Time that his reflexes aren’t as acute as they once were, and he should channel his passion in another direction. (Coaching, perhaps?) Assuming you have insurance, contact your agent and ask if there is additional coverage your husband can take out in case he is seriously injured again. Of course, it won’t guarantee that he won’t hurt himself, but it might give you some peace of mind in case he does. Dear Abby: I’m 23 and live with my parents — a situation I am working to change. When I come home from work, I occasionally like to have a glass of wine or a beer. Obviously, because I’m an adult, this should not be a problem, but every time I touch alcohol my mom freaks out. There is a history of alcoholism in my family, so I somewhat understand where she’s coming from. But I feel she needs to realize that I can have a glass or two of wine and it doesn’t mean I’m getting drunk or an alcoholic. I am my own person, in control of my body, and I know my limits.

My family’s view of alcohol seems to have been skewed. One glass of wine a night does not an alcoholic make, right? — Unwinding In New England Dear Unwinding: Ordinarily, I would say no. But a tendency toward addiction can run in families, and for someone with a predisposition to alcoholism, a glass (or two) of wine every night could escalate and lead to problems. Because you live in your mother’s house, try to be more sensitive to her feelings and respect them. She has experienced firsthand what it’s like to live with someone who has an alcohol problem, and it isn’t pretty. That’s why she is so sensitive about it.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Thursday, Jan. 7, the seventh day of 2016. There are 359 days left in the year. Today’s highlight: On Jan. 7, 1789, America held its first presidential election as voters chose electors who, a month later, selected George Washington to be the nation’s first chief executive. On this date: In 1610, astronomer Galileo Galilei began observing three of Jupiter’s moons (he spotted a fourth moon almost a week later). In 1800, the 13th president of the United States, Millard Fillmore, was born in Summerhill, New York. In 1904, the Marconi International Marine Communication Company of London announced that the telegraphed letters “CQD” would serve as a maritime distress call (it was later replaced with “SOS”). In 1927, commercial transatlantic telephone service was inaugurated between New York and London. In 1942, the Japanese siege of Bataan began during World War II. (The fall
of Bataan three months later was followed by the notorious Death March.) In 1949, George C. Marshall resigned as U.S. Secretary of State; President Harry S. Truman chose Dean Acheson to succeed him. In 1955, singer Marian Anderson made her debut with the Metropolitan Opera in New York, in Verdi’s “Un Ballo in Maschera.” The opening of the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa was televised for the first time. In 1959, the United States recognized the new government of Cuba, six days after Fidel Castro led the overthrow of Fulgencio Batista. In 1963, the U.S. Post Office raised the cost of a first-class stamp from 4 to 5 cents. In 1979, Vietnamese forces captured the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, overthrowing the Khmer Rouge government. In 1989, Emperor Hirohito of Japan died in Tokyo at age 87; he was succeeded by his son, Crown Prince Akihito. Associated Press
Jazz pianist Paul Bley dies at 83 By Charles J. Gans Associated Press
NEW YORK — Visionary Canadian-born pianist Paul Bley, a pivotal figure in the avant-garde jazz movement known for his innovative trio and solo recordings, has died. He was 83. Bley died Sunday of natural causes at his winter residence in Stuart, Florida, said Tina Pelikan, publicist for the ECM record label, citing family members. Throughout his career, Bley was a musical adventurer determined to find his own voice. “If I come up with a phrase that sounds like somebody else, I don’t play it,” he said in a 2006 interview for the website All About Jazz. He challenged the bebop orthodoxy, adapting the free jazz of saxophonist Ornette Coleman for the piano, offering a quieter, moodier version. He later pioneered experiments with synthesizers.
If I come up with a phrase that sounds like somebody else, I don’t play it. — Paul Bley
His groundbreaking piano trios — notably with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Paul Motian — liberated rhythm instruments from their traditional supporting roles, making everyone equal as improvisers. Bley also helped introduce promising young musicians such as guitarist Pat Metheny and electric bassist Jaco Pastorius, and influenced many musicians including pianist Keith Jarrett and guitarist Bill Frisell. Born Nov. 10, 1932, in Montreal, Bley began studying music at age 5, starting on violin and switching to piano by age 7. As a teenager, he was already playing gigs
around Montreal, and at age 17 replaced fellow Montreal pianist Oscar Peterson at the Alberta Lounge. Bley moved to New York in 1950 to study at Juilliard, but remained active in his home city, where he formed the Montreal Jazz Workshop, playing with such bebop legends as Charlie Parker and Sonny Rollins. In New York, he participated in pianist Lennie Tristano’s experimental jazz workshops and met bassist Charles Mingus, who produced and played on Bley’s 1953 debut recording, “Introducing Paul Bley.” In 1957, Bley moved to Los Angeles where he performed with trumpeter Chet Baker. In 1958, Bley
invited a then-unknown Ornette Coleman and his quartet with drummer Billy Higgins, trumpeter Don Cherry and bassist Charlie Haden to play with him at the Hillcrest Club. That gig led Bley to be regarded as “the man who headed the palace coup that overthrew bebop” in the Penguin Guide to Jazz. In 1959, Coleman’s quartet appeared at New York’s Five Spot jazz club and released the album “The Shape of Jazz to Come” — a seminal moment in jazz history that ushered in the free jazz movement. Bley “was the one who understood what Ornette was doing and who brought that kind of tonal mobility and melodic freedom to the piano,” the noted critic Stanley Crouch once observed. He married pianist and composer Karen Borg, who changed her name to Carla Bley, and the couple moved back to New York in 1959. His groups featured her compositions.
Steely Dan founder charged with assault NEW YORK — Steely Dan founder Donald Fagen was charged Tuesday with assaulting his wife at their Manhattan home, according to law enforcement officials and court papers. The 67-year-old former lead singer allegedly shoved Libby Titus into
a marble window frame, knocking her to the ground Monday afternoon at their Upper East Side apartment. The assault caused Titus, 68, to “suffer bruising and swelling to her right arm, as well as substantial pain,” according to the criminal complaint.
The two officials were not authorized to disclose the victim’s name and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Fagen’s publicist had no comment. He launched the band in 1972 with guitarist Walter Becker. The
group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 is known for such groovy ’70s tunes as “Reelin’ In the Years” and “Rikki Don’t Lose that Number.” Steely Dan has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. Associated Press
