Bureau of Justice Statistics discredits inmate sex abuse claim FBI declines invitation to investigate Clallam jail by AMANDA WINTERS Sequim Gazette
Days after a former Clallam County jail inmate came forward claiming three women conspired to make false reports of sexual abuse during a federal survey, the survey administrators discredited her. Elizabeth Stallings was in jail on possession of methamphetamine and theft charges during the “Sexual Victimization in Prisons and Jails Reported by Inmates, 2008-2009”
survey. After the results ranking Clallam County jail third out of 286 for inmate-reported sexual abuse by jail staff, she e-mailed Clallam County Sheriff Bill BENEDICT Benedict claiming she heard three women joking about giving the “worst possible untruthful answers.” Benedict responded by issuing the following in a public statement: “I can unequivocally state that the survey’s find-
ing of 6.1 percent of survey inmates having experienced sexual misconduct by the jail staff as a complete fabrication by several inmates who intentionally misled the interviewers with false answers.” But BJS statistician Allen Beck said it wouldn’t have been possible for the three women to skew the data because only one woman reported abuse through the anonymous survey and the rest were men. Beck said three men and one woman alleged they were victims of sexual misconduct by jail staff in the anonymous

‘The best machine available …’ OMC looks to expand cancer care with new accelerator by MARK ST.J. COUHIG Sequim Gazette
With the help of an expensive new tool, Olympic Medical Center soon will greatly expand its ability to provide “worldclass cancer care” on the peninsula. The OMC board this week approved the purchase of a TrueBeam linear accelerator, manufactured by Varian Medical Systems. Once installed, it will provide patients of the Olympic Medical Cancer Center in Sequim with a number of important new options for cancer treatment. In making her pitch to the board, Rhonda Curry, assistant administrator of the strategic CURRY development department, said, “This new technology will replace our eight-year-old linear accelerator with the newest generation of radiotherapy technology. That will better enable us to treat cancer more precisely, to treat cancers we are currently sending out of the area, and will move us to the level of world-class cancer centers around our country.”
Bret Wirta, owner of Sequim’s Holiday Inn Express and Conference Center, stands next to his hotel’s new 44 solar-panel installation on the roof. The panels produce enough energy to power the hotel’s conference room. Wirta calls the project a long-term investment because conventional energy costs will continue to rise and renewable energy sources will become even more valuable.

Sequim hotel goes green Holiday Inn Express sees sunnier days with solar by MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette
Sequim’s Holiday Inn Express and Conference Center now greets drivers on U.S.
Highway 101 with a sunny glint from its new solar installation. Bret Wirta, owner of the new hotel and Sequim Quality Inn, ordered 44 solar panels
from Port Townsend’s Power Trip Energy Corp. in May. The Sequim hotel is the first in the Washington InterContinental Hotels Group franchise, including Holiday Inns, Crowne Plaza and others, to install solar panels. “We really hope we’re the poster child for the future of hotels,” Wirta said. “I want
to get the message out there to other hotel owners that people are looking for environmentally friendly features like this.” The hotel chain was in full support of Wirta’s solar project, said Heather Pappin, western region area manager
Paying for the improvement The new machine comes with a hefty price tag: $2.7 million, plus tax. Another $500,000 will be spent providing “seamless service” during the installation of the new machine. Extended warranty costs for the first 12 months are included in the purchase price but will then cost $225,000 per year for years two through five. Add it all up, and the tab comes to more than $4.1 million.

Teen thankful for Sequim High School after China tour Asia adventure teaches student about Communism, crowds by AMANDA WINTERS Sequim Gazette
Andrea Tjemsland, left, and her aunt Mary Norton, right, both of Sequim, stand on the Great Wall of China during their August trip.
On Andrea Tjemsland’s first day as a sophomore at Sequim High School, she noticed things she hadn’t before. The water was drinkable, the windows were not broken, the classrooms were filled with sturdy desks and posters, maps and educational decorations lined the
walls. It was a stark contrast to what she saw a couple weeks earlier while on a trip to China with her aunt Mary Norton. While touring a school in Xian, she was struck by the bare walls, broken windows and how dirty the classrooms were. “You feel very lucky being in school in the U.S.,” she said, adding the school didn’t have a heating or cooling

Bill Peterson, project coordinator with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, talks with agents of the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission during training exercises held Tuesday, Sept. 14, at John Wayne Marina.
by MARK ST.J. COUHIG Sequim Gazette
Officials from several agencies, both state and federal, were in Sequim last week to participate in a training exercise with the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office’s Puget Sound Maritime Small Vessel Preventive Radiological & Nuclear Detection (PRND) Pilot Project. Through the pilot project, officials from an alphabet soup of agencies are working together to ensure radioactive materials aren’t transported clandestinely into the U.S. through the Puget Sound. Perhaps more importantly, those participating in the project are developing data and techniques that will be utilized in similar efforts across the U.S. The program, supported by Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard, has as its first priority ensuring the materials necessary to build a nuclear weapon, or a radiation-based “dirty bomb,” are located and seized before terrorists can wreak havoc with them. The effort requires proper vigilance, which translates to regular training and the right equipment.
A little history Three years have passed since the Department of Homeland Security contract-
ed with agencies around Puget Sound and in San Diego, Calif., to create the pilot project. Armed with gamma ray and neutron detectors, project participants have since been recording background radiation levels of boats in John Wayne Marina and throughout Puget Sound. Researchers from Battelle’s Sequim labs trolled inlets and harbors recording background radiation levels. Once background levels of radiation were mapped, different law enforcement and government agencies with a presence on the water received equipment from Homeland Security that alerts responders when there are unusual levels of radiation in the area.

The Department of Homeland Security is developing a small-vessel security strategy to address concerns these boats might be used for terrorist activity. Goals for the project include: • Develop a partnership with the small-boat community to enhance awareness • Enhance maritime security with a coherent monitoring plan • Leverage technology to detect suspicious levels of radiation along waterways • Enhance cooperation among stakeholders to ensure cohesive coverage diological and nuclear detection,” said Bill Peterson, project coordinator with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, which is run by Battelle. “There are materials that emit radiation and different areas can have different background levels, so to have a successful pilot project we need to map those levels.” The pilot project is aimed at smaller boats. Under the Maritime Security Act, large boats — those greater than 300 gross tons — are required to give 96-hour notice for entry into U.S. waterways and are required to have an automatic identification system. Smaller boats usually are unregulated. These can include fishing vessels, commercial vessels and recreational boats that have the ability to travel across the Strait of Juan de Fuca or across the ocean. Taking the Coast Guard’s capabilities “down to the local level,” is one of the goals of the project, said Thomas Sparks, Puget Sound PRND small vessel pilot Coast Guard liaison. By training the members of 23 different Puget
Sound agencies and by providing them with the necessary equipment, members of these agencies can better find “the bad guys.” Sparks was quick to note that not everyone in possession of a radiological source is a bad guy. In some cases it’s simply an unlicensed possession — a souvenir, perhaps. Or someone may simply lack the proper documentation.

The agents were sent in search of small radiological sources brought to the marina by representatives of the Washington State Department of Health; Office of Radiation Protection; Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; the Department of Energy’s Radiological Assistance Program; and Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office Organization. The three-year project is wrapping up this month, Sparks said. For more information on the project, visit www.dhs. gov/xprevprot/programs/ gc_1199394950818.shtm.

John Miller and Sheila Roark-Miller, the two candidates running for Clallam County director of Community Development, debated the role of director and handicap ramps among other things Monday at a luncheon hosted by the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce. Sheila Roark-Miller capitalized on her pioneer heritage in her opening remarks, stating she is familiar with area stakeholders and appreciates their diversity. She said her platform is based on balanced stewardship with goals of protecting the environment while encouraging development, and throwing out permits and fees for pole buildings and handicap ramps. Roark-Miller said she attended a listening session held by the Clallam County Planning Commission regarding a possible proposed agriculture ordinance and noticed John Miller wasn’t there. The next day she overheard a manager say they couldn’t believe how misinformed people were, she said. “I would distribute material explaining the language to grange members,” she said, adding she would welcome input and criticism. Roark-Miller said the county needs to push back against cluster development to save farmland. Miller’s opening remarks focused on what the department has accomplished since he took office in January 2007. When he took office there were many appeals before the Growth Man- J. MILLER agement Hearing Board regarding parts of the county’s 2006 Comprehensive Plan update that were found to be noncompliant with the Growth Management Act. The only remaining area still in noncompliance is Carlsborg, he said. Miller said his office has conducted many neighbor-

A total of 75 inmates participated in the voluntary survey over a period of four days in 2009. When the results of the survey were printed in the Sequim Gazette on Sept. 7, Benedict invited the FBI to investigate. He received word Sept. 17 they would not be investigating because no victims had come forward. “I can’t investigate a murder without a body,” Benedict said. Benedict said he is at a loss for what to do next. “You can’t prove or disprove a negative,” he said. “I’d be open to someone who could come in and show evidence.” Benedict asked again that

In her reply, Roark-Miller said people often tell her that Miller is a nice man but they can’t find him around the office because he isn’t there much. “I think the public wants to come in and see you and employees want to see you,” she said.
Ramps, disabilities act an issue Miller came back with criticism of Roark-Miller’s proposal to no longer require permits for handicap ramps. Miller said the Americans with Disabilities Act includes standards for how handicap ramps are built. Those are federal standards the county should make sure are followed, he said. Miller said he can not figure out how a person who wants to work for the government can say federal law won’t be followed. “I have a problem with that,” he said. Miller later added he delegates tasks to other staff members and reads their reports to stay informed. Miller said he doesn’t need to be present for everything anyone who has been the victim of sexual abuse at the jail to call the FBI at 360-394-8188. Benedict maintains at least one of the claims in the survey, the one made by the woman, was fabricated, based on Stallings’ e-mail. Benedict said a survey given to 100 people could result in 3 or 4 percent of them saying they were visited by aliens. “What if these were claims of alien visits?” he asked. “Would we be so worked up?” He added that he sees mental illness he can’t treat in his jail as a bigger problem than alleged sexual abuse. “People who are mentally ill, what are they going to say?” he said. “A lot of them are delusional.” He takes issue with claims that sexual victimization of inmates by staff happened in locked closets, which the jail doesn’t have, or outside the jail. The only place outside the

his department does to know they are doing a good job. An audience member asked the candidates to describe their open-door policy and how they would go about interacting with members of the public. Miller said he would wait to hear from a community development employee to tell him what he could do as a director to fix the situation before getting involved. “Responsibility is delegated to the people who work directly with the public,” he said. Roark-Miller said, having worked at the counter as well as in the field for the department, she knows how to work with people to solve problems and she would have an opendoor policy. “They (the public) entrust us to help them when the time comes,” she said. The next Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce debate will be held at noon Monday, Sept. 27, at the Red Lion Inn. The candidates for the chamber of commerce board and candidates for county prosecutor will be present to debate.

Beck emphasized that the survey only contains allegations, not assertions of truth. “Not all these allegations could be true,” he said. “But we know that you can’t make the assumption that all victims lie, whether it’s women being abused by their husbands or children being abused or neglected. You can’t assume that all inmates lie.” Beck said if jail administrators were to assume the reports were all lies, they should ask themselves why their inmates lied more than inmates at other jails. “My position has always been that correctional authorities should look at the data, consider the possibility that they might have a problem, examine what they know, what we’re reporting and make a decision,” he said. “I think that’s the appropriate response and I think that’s the response being made by others across the country.” Benedict said it is possible sexual abuse by jail staff could happen but it isn’t probable and it hasn’t been reported since one incident in the late 1990s. “I think it’s a possibility but the probability is extremely low,” he said. “I think if there was abuse going on, we’d have some victims coming forward.” Reach Amanda Winters at awinters@sequim gazette.com.

In July, the college received a letter from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, reaffirming the school’s accreditation at the associate’s level but also granting accreditation for bachelor’s degrees. This allows the college to continue its Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management program and opens the doors to starting other bachelor’s degree programs without having to partner with universities, Peninsula College President Tom Keegan said. The applied management program began as part of the college’s University Center in 2007, with the first class graduating in 2009, he said.
Beginning computer classes are in P.A. The Port Angeles Library offers computer classes for beginners on Thursdays. “Navigating the Internet” is Thursday, Sept. 23. “Connecting by e-mail 1: sending and receiving e-mail,” is Sept. 30. “Connecting by e-mail 2: attachments and more,” is Oct. 7. Each class will be offered twice, from 10-11:30 a.m. and again from 1-2:30 p.m., all in the library’s computer lab. These hands-on classes are limited to five participants per class. Preregistration is required; call 417-8500 during library open hours to register. If interest warrants, the classes will be repeated. The Port Angeles Library is at 2210 S. Peabody St. For more infor mation, call 417-8500, or go to www.nols.org, click on “Events” and select Port Angeles.
The program is designed to prepare people with technical skills to move into entry-level and mid-level management positions, he said. It was chosen based on research showing employers on the peninsula were in need of employees with management training, he said. A two-quarter-long internship is required as part of the program to connect students with employers and give hands-on experience to accompany the formal education at the college, Keegan said.
Tom Keegan, president of Peninsula College, stands in front of the campus library. The college received accreditation at the baccalaureate degree level in July and starts a new bachelor’s degree program with Western Washington University in spring quarter 2011.
Other extended degree programs Peninsula College also offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in human services and planning and environmental policy, as well as a Bachelor of Science in environmental studies, all in partnership with Western Washington University. This spring it will add yet another baccalaureate program through Western. Starting spring quarter 2011, a Bachelor of Arts in interdisciplinary general studies will be offered through

Western, Keegan said. Most of the courses will be offered face-to-face at the Peninsula College campus, he said. The program was made possible through the 2009 state Legislature, which authorized the funding for Peninsula College to partner with a university, he said. The college continues to offer a bachelor’s degree in education with teacher
certification for elementary K-8 and/or special education K-12, through City University of Seattle. Keegan said the baccalaureate programs aren’t part of a transformation from college to university but an effort to ensure peninsula residents can have access to bachelor’s degrees. Peninsula College will continue to maintain its com-

MONEY NEVER SLEEPS
Under a new three-way agreement established by Peninsula College, Clallam Transit System and Peninsula College students, Sequim students attending Peninsula College can purchase a lowcost pass for use on all Clallam Transit buses. The new $5 passes are valid for an academic quarter. Terry Weed, general manager of Clallam Transit, said Peninsula College students recently voted to “tax themselves” to provide the support to Sequim students. In late May the students voted to selfimpose a $5 fee on all students to help pay for the deeplydiscounted bus passes. The passes are good on all Clallam Transit buses, at any time, throughout the quarter. Prior to the recent vote, the best deal available to Sequim students was a $53 pass, good for one quarter. The new passes are valid from Sept. 20. In the past, Clallam sold 100-150 student passes each

Olympic Medical Center’s new TrueBeam linear accelerator helps doctors treat cancer more precisely. Submitted photo
this. This will replace some of the thoracic surgery.”
OMC From page A-1
Treat and re-treat
Board member John Nutter, who is a former finance director for the center, called the purchase “probably our biggest single capital expenditure in many years.” He said the expenditure is well-justified, noting, “Our cancer center has been our single best (revenue) contributor — this is how we survive in years to come.”
Medical care enhanced Dr. Rena Zimmerman, OMCC radiation oncologist and medical director of radiation oncology, is excited about the new machine’s superior capabilities. “One of the reasons I moved here is we have an outstanding cancer center. The machine for the last eight years has been good, but we need to do more. This is the best equipment for our needs.” The new linear accelerator will greatly enhance the ability of staff oncologists to perform stereotactic radio surgery, in which a high dose of radiation is delivered to a finely defined area. For example, the focused radiation beams can be delivered to a specific area of the brain to treat abnormalities, tumors or functional disorders. “We won’t be radiating the whole head,” Zimmerman said. Zimmerman also had good words for the new machine’s capabilities to treat lung cancers. “We usually bring them to surgery, but if (the patients) have other difficulties — like breathing — we can do it just as well with
Zimmerman also noted the ability to do re-treatments with the new equipment, “even areas near sites that were formerly treated.” With the TrueBeam technology, doctors can focus the radiation on the one small area that needs treatment. That means the lifetime dosage to any particular area can be reduced. “We’ll have better cure rates with lesser side effects,” Zimmerman said. “It’s a sea change.” Zimmer man also described another important benefit to patients. The current machine requires patients to be strapped down motionless for 45 minutes. “We can reduce this by 75 percent. This is like going from a 35-millimeter camera with film to going to a 35-millimeter digital. We looked at everything on the market. This is the best machine available,” Zimmerman said.
Going regional Zimmerman said with the new technology, OMCC “will become a magnet” for cancer treatment. “There are no TrueBeam sites in the Pacific Northwest,” she noted. With the new linear accelerator, two new oncologists on staff and with the completion of the cancer center in Sequim, “we’re in a good position to start extending care regionally,” Zimmerman said.

Traumatic brain injury support ‘A good place to let it all out’
To learn more about traumatic brain injury:
by MARK ST.J. COUHIG Sequim Gazette
The second Tuesday of every month you’ll find four to six people quietly enjoying snacks, coffee and pleasant chatter in the dining room of VFW Hall 4760 in Sequim. The get-together provides a welcome respite from lives made difficult by traumatic brain injury. The peninsula support group has been meeting for “about four years,” says Steve Stratton, who heads up the local crew and is active with similar organizations across the state. The local gathering is part of an expanding web of support groups that are popping up across the nation and across the world. They serve those who have experienced an injury but they also lend a hand to their families, to caregivers and to the communities in which they operate.
Getting involved In 1968, Stratton was hurt in a serious auto accident. “On Dec. 24 they did the surgery and on Christmas Day I woke up. Before the accident I was a very good mechanical and electronics engineer, raising a family. When I woke up I had about a four-word vocabulary,” he said. He’s made great strides toward recovery, but “it’s still in process,” he said. “It’s not like a broken bone.” Stratton said after his injury he discovered there was no one to go to for help or for support. At the time the issue was discussed only by doctors and their patients. “There was a need for an organization to provide information to families and everyone else,” Stratton said. “That’s how I got involved.” Stratton notes that trau-
Lloyd Huff reaches for a cup of coffee while Steve Stratton enjoys a laugh. The two are part of a peninsula support group for those suffering from traumatic brain injuries. Sequim Gazette photo by Mark Couhig
matic brain injury can happen to anyone, young or old, and the resulting disability can be “mild, moderate or total.” Stratton said one of the primary goals of the group is to promote safety. “It’s important to prevent this from happening. It takes so long to get them back … if you get them back.”
‘… my friends’ Lloyd Huff was driving along U.S. Highway 101 past Lake Crescent “in the middle of the night” when a tree fell, crushing his truck and injuring Huff. As Huff, who says he is the comic of the group, notes, “If God wanted my attention, he could have just used a 2 by 4.” His sense of humor helps, but Huff also welcomes the opportunity to meet with others who understand the difficulties he endures. “I come for the support and these people have become my friends. On a good day, it’s just a social visit. On a bad day it’s a good place to let it all out.” “It’s good to know there are people who can relate and who care,” Stratton said. Azella, another member of the group, said, “What’s wonderful is many times with head injuries there are
problems with memory. It’s good to be with people who understand.”
Who belongs There are six members who regularly attend. “That’s probably not enough,” Stratton said. “Especially with the war and all the sports events.” All of the members agreed the number of brain injuries is regularly under-reported. “A lot of this is cumulative,” Stratton said. And many boys involved in sports just won’t report their injuries, he said. “How many people here on the peninsula have had strokes?” asked Azella, “I’m sure there are 30 to 50 people here who could benefit.” Azella notes that brain trauma is more than just head injuries. “I’ve had a stroke,” she said. “Another person in the group had an aneurysm.” One member of the group, who asked not to be identified, noted the prevalence of brain injuries in modern warfare but said he was hopeful today’s soldiers are receiving better care for these types of injuries. “The military is taking better care of its own,” he said. “One of the hopes is that the military will end up improving care for all victims of

¡Salsa Auténtica! Garcia family is in business of bringing fresh salsa to market by MARK ST.J. COUHIG Sequim Gazette
The Garcia family has found a hot market for their salsa in Sequim. José, a native of Mexico (as his “Hecho in Mexico” T-shirt attests), has long been making his specialty salsa for friends. They encouraged José to take it to the marketplace, and so he did, beginning in May at Sequim’s Open Aire Market. José and his wife, Angee, now are manufacturing and selling 50 gallons of the salsa each week. Daughter Abbey, 7, and son Sage, 10, pitch in with the family enterprise. The products taste wonderfully fresh, and with good reason: the Garcias buy their produce from Sequim farmers, or when that’s not possible, from others in Washington. The salsa is put together in a weekly marathon Thursdaynight session at the Boys & Girls Club in Sequim. The club has a commercial kitchen that can be rented by the hour.
Let’s get it started Utilizing a commercial kitchen is just one of the requirements for creating a commercial food product in Washington. After going through the state-mandated process and paying the statemandated tab, José’s Famous Salsa holds a Master Business License that allows the couple to wholesale their goods.
That means you now can pick up some of José’s Famous Salsa at the Saturday Open Aire Market or you can drop by Hardy’s Market, The Red Rooster Grocery or Agnew Grocery the rest of the week. You’ll find four different heat levels, from mild to “crazy hot” to suit your tastes. “Most people just put it on chips,” Angee said, but “there’s many more uses for fresh salsa. I have one friend who puts it in Bloody Marys. Another adds it to his meat loaf recipe.” Angee also noted that salsa is a great accompaniment to eggs at breakfast time.
Manzer joins Windermere Jane Manzer has joined Windermere Real Estate/ Sequim East as a real estate agent. Manzer moved to the Olympic Peninsula in MANZER the spring of 1978 when her husband, Fred, transferred to Olympic National Park. The couple raised two sons in Sequim. Her employment background includes work with real estate appraisers and for real estate attorneys. She volunteered in elementary classrooms, served as an officer on Helen Haller PTO, was on the middle school advisory council and was one of the founding officers of the Sequim Schools Athletic Booster Club. She is a member of Soroptimist International of Sequim.
Authentic as it gets José is from Tepic Nayarit, a small town near Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s west coast. He and Angee met while working at Chili’s in Torrance, Calif. They’ve been married 11 years. Torrance is a long way from Sequim, but moving to the peninsula was a happy decision. “My mom was going to move here but got cancer. We eventually moved anyway. We wanted to raise our kids in a better place.” Angee, a stay-at-home mom when she’s not manufacturing or hawking salsa, also is working to become a paraeducator. “I want to help kids who need a little more help,”
José Garcia blends the ingredients while Angee chops the fresh veggies. Sequim Gazette photo by Mark Couhig
she said. For his day job, José builds yachts at Westport Shipyard in Port Angeles. Anyone interested in creating a food product for sale can
contact Steve Rosales at the Boys & Girls Club. The club’s kitchen, which rents for $10 to $15 an hour, is used only about four hours a day. The kitchen is a great community
resource and the rent money goes to support a good cause, Rosales said. Reach Mark Couhig at mcouhig@sequimgazette. com.
Cedar Creek celebrates grand reopening Friday New menu, paint schemes and floors among changes by ASHLEY MILLER for the Sequim Gazette
Cedar Creek Restaurant is back in business under new ownership. Mark and Kristina McIntyre celebrated the soft reopening of the American Northwest cuisine establishment — located on North Fifth Avenue — on Wednesday, Sept. 15. The grand opening is Friday, Sept. 24. The McIntyres moved from Utah after buying the business. Mark, a Marine with a law enforcement background, decided to pursue his passion for food and fine dining by switching careers. Since his business model for fine dining didn’t fit in the area where the couple was living, they started looking elsewhere. “We started thinking outside the box,” Mark said. “Why not look for a business where we want to be someday instead of where we are?” Sequim fit the bill. When they visited and saw the historical building with exquisite gardens, the decision was easy. Since purchasing the restaurant earlier this year, the couple has repainted the inside, refinished the floors and rebuilt the kitchen. The newly org anized menu features locally harvested Dungeness and king crab, lamb, veal, prime rib,

fruits and vegetables. “It’s every bit as good (as before) but more reasonably priced,” Mark said. Chef Jeff Hollen moved from Florida to take the job. “I like the area,” said Hollen, who has more than 25 years experience as a certified executive chef. “I was tired of Florida and ready for a change.” Sequim, according to Mark and Kristina, needs a fine dining restaurant. “There are other good restaurants in Sequim but there’s room for another,” Kristina said. “We don’t care what has happened here before,” Mark said, in reference to the restaurant’s several previous owners and rumored “curse”
Marion E. Yandell, M.D., was issued a second patent from the U.S. Patent Office. Both patents cover variations on a vial system. Yandell’s second invention is for reducing the incidence of YANDELL infections acquired in hospitals. He is seeking strategic commercialization partners and can be contacted at 452-1171. He has several other related U.S. and foreign patents pending. Innovation Law Group, Ltd., of Sequim, helped in the preparation, filing and prosecution of the patent applications.

This isn’t Mark’s first time living in Sequim. While growing up, he traveled the U.S. extensively with his father, who was a Secret Service agent and accepted transfers every two years. His father was in the car behind President John Kennedy when he was assassinated. Sequim made such an impression on Mark when he

Tooth Truth with Richard (Bud) Davies, DDS
Velcro for Teeth Perhaps you know of someone with dentures (removable teeth), with lower teeth that just won’t stay put. Many who have dentures and especially those who have had them for many years, have lost so much bone in their jaw that the dentures have very little ridge to attach to, or be stabilized with. With the advent of titanium implants there is a solution to keeping dentures in place. It is as if the teeth were attached to the jaw with Velcro. And with the further advent of mini implants, lower denture stabilization and retention is within the ﬁnancial ability of even more people. Call for your complimentary consultation.

To celebrate the solar project’s completion, Wirta hosted a kick-off luncheon with the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce on Sept. 14. He told the business crowd that he sees the solar panels as a long-term and stable investment. The project cost about $65,000 and takes only a fraction of the western roof space at the hotel, which leaves room for expansion. “We’ll run it for 12 months and see what the return is and then we’ll decide on growth,” Wirta said. The solar panels have been online for about three weeks. Power Trip officials say the energy produced from the roof modules is enough to power the hotel’s conference room. Andy Cochrane, president of Power Trip, said the system’s 44 Sharp poly-crystalline silicon modules produce 10.34-kilowatts, and on average produce 35 kilowatt hours per day. “They are among the best value you can get and on this project it gets the most power for the money,” Cochrane said, noting the module has no batteries or moving parts and will be maintenance free. It also produces energy during rainy weather. “As energy costs rise, it becomes a better investment,” Cochrane said. “At the same time, the installation of solar is going down whereas other sources of energy are going up.”
Solar in sunny Sequim The state Department of Revenue reported that Jefferson County is the leading solar provider in the state with 87 certified projects as of Sept. 1, with one project for every 337 residents. Clallam County has one certified solar installation per 922 residents. Sequim has
There are 44 Sharp poly-crystalline silicon modules on top of Holiday Inn Express and Conference Center. It doesn’t have batteries or moving parts and will be maintenance free, said Andy Cochrane, president of Power Trip Energy Corp. The panels also produce energy during rainy weather.

Fifth annual PUD Solar Tour Clallam County Public Utility District hosts its fifth annual Clallam County Solar Tour from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, beginning at Sequim High School, 601 N. Sequim Ave. The tour has two components: • Self-drive solar installation site visits (20 total) These feature solar tracking arrays, back-up power batteries, solar water heating, passive solar design, alternative building materials and innovative designs, rainwater catch systems, energy-efficient appliances and weatherization measures and a ground-source heat pump. Tour packets are available from the PUD’s Conservation Department at its solar-powered House-on-Wheels at the high school. • Free workshops at 10:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Sequim High School cafeteria. The first workshop, “Going Solar,” 10:15 a.m.-noon, provides a basic overview of installing a solar energy system, including information on government incentives and financing. The second workshop, “Passive Solar Energy Efficient Design,” 12:30-1:15 p.m., shows how home design and energy efficiency measures can increase home comfort significantly while reducing energy costs. Find more information online at www.clallampud. net/conservation, http://solarwashington.org or www. ases.org. 47 projects. Cochrane said most of Power Trip’s projects are residential, with about 70 on Clallam County Public Utility District’s grid. “Solar leaders like California and Oregon saw it transition from committed residences to businesses looking for long-term stability in their energy costs,” Cochrane said. “(Wirta’s) going to be able to market that his hotel is run by solar, which ties in really well with the opportunity Sequim has as ‘Sunny Sequim.’” Incentives for solar installations include federal credits, state sales tax exemptions on the purchase of certain equipment and payments for each kilowatt-hour produced from a customer-generated electricity renewable energy system. “We know from all the

China and the trip was on, Norton said. Tjemsland said she was worried about things like water potability, safety and laws because she had heard China was an intense and scary place. Water from a tap was not drinkable and even when brushing her teeth she had to be sure to rinse with bottled water and not put the brush in the sink’s running water, she said. The drivers in China didn’t pay attention to traffic signals or pedestrians and it wasn’t uncommon to see them driving or parking on sidewalks, she said. “It’s a three-lane highway but if they can make four or five (lanes) out of it, they will,” Norton said. Aside from being cautious of the water and bad drivers, Tjemsland said she was amazed by some of the things she saw. In sixth grade a teacher
showed Tjemsland’s class photos of the tomb of one of China’s emperors, who wanted thousands of terra-cotta warriors built to be buried with him so they could protect him in the afterlife, she said. “Three farmers were going to go build a well and they started digging and found a pit of terra-cotta warriors,” she said. So far 6,400 warriors have been uncovered, and no two have the same face, she said. “You walk in and it is so intense and amazing,” Tjemsland said of the structure built around the warriors. Since sixth grade she’s wanted to see the warriors but didn’t think it’d ever happen, she said. Tjemsland and Norton also saw the Great Wall of China. The crowd was unbelievable — as was the wall, which seemed to never end, Tjemsland said. The two took the hard route to avoid being pushed and poked by the crowds, who had no concept of personal space, Tjemsland said. Sometimes a couple of
people would walk up to Tjemsland and ask to get their picture taken with her, Norton said. Tjemsland said she is glad to be back and is excited that many of her classes this year tie in to her newfound passions: Asian culture and Communism. Her literature class is focusing on culture and her journalism class is reading about Kim Jong Il, North Korea’s “Supreme Leader,” she said. The “forbiddenness” and government control in Communist countries fascinate her, especially after seeing it in practice in China, she said. “It is mind-boggling and life-changing,” she said. Norton said the trip made her thankful for what she has. Tjemsland agreed. “The first day back (at school) I kept thinking how lucky I am,” she said. “I heard people complain about being back at school and I’d think to myself, ‘We are very lucky to be going to school here.’”

Gleaners needed Olympic Gleaners is looking for help with this season’s gleaning activities. If your fruit tree still has fruit, they want to collect it. If you have other crops to be gleaned, ditto. You even can help ensure the food is delivered to those who need it. Olympic Gleaners also needs volunteers to help pick the fruit and veggies. It’s all part of the all-volunteer effort, which is coordinated by Olympic Community Action Programs. As organizers say, without proper organization and helping hands, “We risk leaving a lot of food unharvested which could be shared with those in need throughout our community.” Call OlyCAP at 452-4726, ext. 6282.

About Happy Valley Editor’s note: Did You Know explores the history of Sequim, the Dungeness Valley and Clallam County. It is produced by Thomas E. Montgomery of John L. ScottSequim Real Estate in collaboration with Melissa A. Coughlin. Happy Valley is beautifully situated at the base of Burnt Hill and is populated today with single-family homes usually on an acre or more of land. It has MONTGOMERY spectacular views of the valley and is one of the popular Sequim elk habitats. It also is famous archeologically as a mastodon site. Did you know that the area used to be heavily populated with trees and was first homesteaded around 1875? It was Andrew Abernathy, Arthur Sinclair and Charles Hyde who first laid claim to land in Happy Valley. They spent years clearing the land by cutting and then burning the big trees. The original three settlers later were joined by Ansel Jackson and situated their four log cabins in a square. The men were bachelors and would spend quiet evenings in each other’s company. They called the area “Happy Valley” in describing their homesteads without women. The name has remained, even after families moved into the area. There were no state highways or railroad lines through the area. The first roads were narrow and cut through low areas that had to be filled with small trees and branches to cover holes and swampy spots. At first children had to walk all the way to Sequim to go to school, many only attending when the weather was good. T h e H ap py Va l l e y School District was established in 1892. Initially school was held in the James Bell house. Then in 1893, a schoolhouse was built and sessions lasted two months. Pay for teachers in those days was about $35 a month. The first settlers started a few mills and farms in the area. In 1900, Charles Cayes had a shingle mill in Happy Valley. Another large shingle mill was built on the C. J. Sporseen Farm. A noted memory of this early period was a display put out by the Happy Valley Shingle Company — a 22-inch-wide blemish-free shingle.

Intake a juggling act at Safe Haven animal shelter
Facility houses about 45 cats by AMANDA WINTERS Sequim Gazette
Their message machine may say they aren’t accepting any more cats but members of Peninsula Friends of Animals say intake at the Safe Haven animal shelter is a delicate and constant shuffling process. The 5,000-square-foot house-turned-animal-shelter off U.S. Highway 101 between Sequim and Port Angeles has a permitted capacity of 60 cats but hovers around 45 to maintain better quality and adoptability for the felines, PFOA board president Diane Lopez said. Nancy Campbell, a shelter volunteer, said when there are too many cats they get behavioral issues from being stressed out and therefore are harder to adopt. “Nobody wants to adopt a cat that’s hiding,” she said. A list is maintained so as cats are adopted out, new cats in need of housing are brought in, she said. Emergency situations are dealt with as they happen. The cats are housed throughout the shelter, with adult cats spread among four general-use rooms, a quarantine room, isolation room, two time-out rooms and a room off the garage shared by two cats that have tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus, Lopez said. There also is David, a 2-year-old cat who was moved to an outside sheltered dog kennel he preferred to rooming with other cats, she said. Kittens are housed in two rooms on the main floor of the house after they are fostered by volunteers, she said. Kittens must be cared for at a foster home until they can get their first round of shots, Lopez said. Currently there are nine kittens in the shelter and more than 60 have come through this year, Campbell said.
‘Friends’ manage birth rate Before any cat is adopted, it must be spayed or neutered,

Cascade, who has a broken femur, was rescued by the shelter with her brother Bart after they were found in a bark processing yard. Photo by Jan Cubbage which is central to PFOA’s mission to prevent the birth of unwanted animals, Lopez said. Upon their intake, cats are placed in the quarantine room for two weeks where they are checked by a veterinarian and treated for any problems, Lopez said. Where a cat is placed depends on its particular needs such as if it gets along with other cats, what health issues it has and its age, she said. Finding the right placement and shifting the cats around to achieve both the best arrangement and to make room for incoming cats is a difficult balance, Lopez said. Because of the shuffling, it can be difficult to know where there is room to place new cats, she said. Some of the cats have been at the shelter since it opened
a decade ago, Campbell said. Cats with special needs or behavioral quirks are especially hard to place, she said. Many of the cats have sad stories of abandonment, neglect, abuse or loss of an owner. Campbell said cats that have lost their owner and home go through a grieving process when they arrive, whereas cats that were abandoned or neglected seem to be relieved and happy. The recession has caused an increase in pet owners who no longer can care for their animals and have to give them up, she said. The shelter often gets calls from people who lost their houses and now are renting a place that doesn’t accept pets or are living in their cars and can’t take care of them, she said. Since the shelter opened, more than 1,200 cats have been adopted and 5,000 have
been spayed or neutered through PFOA’s spay and neuter program, Lopez said.
Volunteers always are needed to help socialize, foster or donate supplies to the shelter. Lopez said the shelter has many dedicated volunteers who foster several animals at a time. Plans for an expanded shelter, care facility, adoption center and memorial garden have been put on hold due to the economy, Lopez said.

David, a 2-year-old cat, lives in a covered, fenced area outside that once was used for dogs at the Safe Haven shelter. Shelter volunteers say David is affectionate and playful but has his own area separate from the other cats because sometimes he doesn’t play well with others.
Sequim man seeks to start new tradition by AMANDA WINTERS Sequim Gazette
Ryan Smith, of Sequim, signs his name inside the cover of “Atonement” by Ian McEwan, the third book gifted as part of a book exchange he began earlier this month in Sequim.
Ryan Smith and Sean Saffold, both of Sequim, sat inside Applebee’s restaurant on Thursday, Sept. 9, discussing their travels in Asia and things they read when their typical sharing of books turned into something more. Saffold gave Smith a tract his father had given him and Smith decided to take it one step further. “We ought to put your name in it and when I read it, I’ll put mine and I can give it to someone when I go to Hoquiam,” Smith recalls saying. Conversely Smith signed his name in Thomas Cahill’s “The Gifts of the Jews,” gave it to Saffold and instructed Saffold to do the same before gifting the book to someone else. The two developed the idea of a worldwide book exchange web of sorts, where books would be read, signed with the reader’s name and location, then gifted to someone else who would do the same, Smith said. The books can be any kind: fiction, history, art, politics. They can be gifted to anyone: friends, family or even strangers. Just read, sign and pass it on. “Instead of collecting dust, you’re giving that book the chance to really spark someone’s imagination,” Smith said. An avid reader and 1988 graduate of Sequim Bible Christian School, Smith estimates he carried more than 800 books into China during the seven and a half years he spent teaching there. He said he bought a large portion of those books from Friends of the Library sales. “I think we should be giving away three things: love, kindness and knowledge,” he said. “Books can do that.”

Lloyd Marohl, of Tacoma, shows off his one-of-kind flying lawnmower at the Sequim RC Aeronauts’ model airplane show. He’s been flying model airplanes for 54 years and his lawnmower for 22 years. “I mow the lawn at home and he mows the clouds,” said Barbara Marohl, his wife.
Mark Carreiro, 20, of Poulsbo, was one of a few 3-D, or trick, pilots to fly dazzling stunts such as hovering vertically above the ground and flying upside down and sideways at the Sequim RC Aeronauts’ first model airplane show. Sequim Gazette photos by Matthew Nash
Crowds fly to Sequim RC planes show Sequim Gazette staff
Sequim RC Aeronauts held its first model airplane show Sept. 11 at the Sequim Valley Airport with soaring attendance numbers. Club treasurer Randy Hurlbut said there was a steady stream of cars and spectators during the whole event, especially from 11 a.m. to the end. “It exceeded everybody’s expectations,” Hurlbut said. “It was where we wanted it to be and more. The weather was just about perfect.” The Sequim club co-hosted the event with the Port Angeles Olympic Radio Controlled Modelers and brought in more than 50 pilots from Western Washington who flew and displayed planes. Stunt fliers performed tricks and flew unique airplanes and gliders throughout the day. The event brought in $1,873 for Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County from donations and flight admissions. “We were really blessed with the fliers and the huge crowd of nonfliers,” Hurlbut said. Club members fly their planes from 9 a.m.-noon daily in the field adjacent to Dungeness Valley Creamery on Towne Road. Flying lessons are available. Find more at www.sequimrcaeronauts.org.
Bob Walter, a member of model airplane clubs in Sequim and Port Angeles, flew his unique witch glider and a plane dubbed “the pizza box” for crowds at the Sequim RC Aeronauts’ first model airplane show.
Organizers of the Sept. 11, model airplane show at Sequim Valley Airport said it exceeded their expectations. More than 50 model airplane pilots appeared and/or flew their unique airplanes and gliders.

A book exchange where used books are gifted freely between friends and strangers also can provide people the opportunity to learn about or discover a passion for a subject they normally would not have encountered, he said. Sharing books can cause people to realize they have a common interest, when maybe they were at odds with each other, he said. “If we take the focus off where people mostly disagree and focus our energy and minds on where we can agree, we can encourage the lives
around us,” he said. “I think books can help us do that.” Saffold left later that to do missions and human rights work in Southeast Asia, taking with him the book he will give to someone with whom he crosses paths, Smith said. Smith gave a third book, “Atonement” by Ian McEwan, to a Sequim woman Thursday. He said he plans to regularly gift books and hopes others will join. “Just do it 21 times and see if it turns into something,” he said.

Are you ‘fit’ to drive? CarFit helps older drivers meet the challenges of the road Sequim Gazette staff
Older drivers face special challenges behind the wheel of a car. Find out how road-ready you are by participating in CarFit this Wednesday, Sept. 29, at the Walmart in Sequim. The program, which runs from 1-4 p.m. in the Walmart parking lot, was developed by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapist Association. It’s a free, interactive and educational program designed to improve older driver safety. Trained volunteers provide assistance to ensure the safest “fit” for older drivers and their vehicles. CarFit technicians complete a 12-point checklist to identify safety issues. Drivers should be at least 10 inches from the airbag, with
the head restraint adjusted properly. The steering wheel should be tilted so a deployed airbag will contact the driver’s chest and not the face. All drivers should be able to see at least three inches over the steering wheel and the mirrors must be properly adjusted. If a problem is identified, the driver then confers with an on-site occupational therapist trained in driver assessments. Two occupational therapists, Liz Klawitter from Clallam County and Wendy Norquist from Jefferson County, will perform the driver assessments, “As we age, changes in our vision, flexibility, strength, range of motion and even size and height may make us less comfortable and reduce our control behind the wheel. CarFit provides older
adults with the tools to understand and use the safety features of the vehicles more advantageously,” said Linda Pfafman, Jefferson County Traffic Safety Task Force coordinator. Organizers say safety often can be improved by simple adjustments but sometimes the only way to solve a driver safety issue is by choosing a different vehicle. Statistics collected from past CarFit events indicate that 90 percent of the participants found the inspections useful. More than a third had at least one red flag and were directed to an occupational therapist. The inspections are by appointment only and take about 20 minutes. To make an appointment, call Joe Borden at 683-3408 or e-mail him at borden@ olypen.com.

Jackie Russell Cummings was born in Bristow, Oklahoma on August 1, 1924 to Ola Mae (Chisholm) and Roland Dale Da Cummings. As a boy, he delivered newspapers in Tulsa, Oklahoma and ne enjoyed playing baseball, football and enj wrestling. Growing li G i up iin a musical family, Jackie ﬁrst showed talent on ﬁddle and mandolin, although guitar would become the musical love of his life. At age 18, Jack enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War II and served in the 45th Division of the 7th Army as a member of the celebrated Oklahoma Thunderbirds. The Thunderbirds were made up mostly of Cherokee and Choctaw Native Americans who volunteered for service at the beginning of the war. Jack served as Sergeant in Tunisia, North Africa and Italy as a radio operator in some of the earliest air-to-ground reconnaissance during wartime. The Thunderbirds landed in Gela Beach on the southern coast of Sicily, on the morning of July 10th, 1943, suﬀering heavy losses due to adverse weather and heavy enemy ﬁre. These amphibious landings were critical to the success of the war, and set up the stage for later landings at Normandy. General George Patton, commander of the 7th Army in Italy, described the Oklahoma Thunderbirds 45th Division as “one of the ﬁnest, if not the ﬁnest infantry divisions in the history of modern warfare.” The 45th participated in the liberation of Italy ending in Rome in June, 1944.* Jack was honorably discharged in October, 1945 and was presented with the Distinguished Unit Badge, the European/African/ Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and the Good Conduct Medal. He survived WW II with only the heel of his boot shot oﬀ, but suffered from post-traumatic syndrome from his war experiences for the rest of his life, as did many of his comrades. After the war Jack lived in southern California where he met and married his love and wife of 60 years, Wanda Bee Shaw. They had four children and eventually settled on the Olympic Peninsula in 1961. The family built a house on 40 acres on Webb Hill (between Shelton and Union) using only hand tools, long before electricity and utilities were available in the area. One of the area’s original homestead deeds from the early 1900s, this land has been home to three generations of the Cummings family. Jack worked as a technical writer for Boeing in the 1960s, and retired from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. He survived both cancer and a heart attack, and enjoyed traveling around the country with Wanda for many years. They especially loved camping and hiking in high desert areas of the Southwest. They eventually settled in the Sequim area, enjoying life in the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains they both loved. Shortly after his 86th birthday, Jack died on August 22, 2010. A lifelong and accomplished musician, Jack ﬁrst performed with his father and sister Bettye in dance bands in Oklahoma. He later performed with western swing bands in the Los Angeles area, and shared his love of music with family and friends throughout his life. Toward the end of his life, Jack recorded a collection of many songs in the western swing, pop, and jazz genres as well as several original compositions. “Papa” Jack is survived by his wife Wanda; three sons: Ronald and wife Pam, Victor and wife Cathie, and Daniel and wife Shawn; grandchildren Anna, Jennifer, Matthew, Joshua, Brianna, Sarah, Katy, and Jack; great-grandchildren Asaisha, Kaylin, Elijah, Janessa, Mackenzy, Zyler, Zaine, and Cadence; two sisters Jeanne, Bettye and partner JoAnn. Jack and Wanda’s daughter Peggy died of cancer in 2001. At Jack’s request, no formal services are planned. Memorial donations may be made to the Peggy Cummings Bolling Memorial Scholarship, which provides support for horsemanship studies for youth and adults. The mailing address is: Back Country Horsemen, PO Box 1504, Shelton WA 98584. * The story of the Italian campaign is told in the book “The Day Of Battle: The War in Sicily and Italy, 1943-44” by Rick Atkinson.
Correction: Dorothy Haidal died Aug. 23, 2010. An incorrect date was published in the Sept. 15 Sequim Gazette
Dorothy “Dottie” Haidal was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on May 1, 1943 and died peacefully at her sister’s home in Sequim, Washington on August 23, 2010. Dottie was a polio survivor who lived a full life. Her sense of humor brough much joy to all who knew her. Although her laughter gradually brought became mo more subdued over the past two years as she valiantly battled ALS, her sense of hu humor never wavered. Growing up on the East Coast, in 1961 Dottie graduated from Edison High School in N New Jersey. For the next 15 years she was employed as a private secretary for Johnson & Johnson in New Brunswick, NJ. One of her responsibilities was social director. She loved to tell the story of when planning a department holiday party, she made her mark when the highly-publicized Door Prize turned out to be an old door, badly in need of pain paint. She married the late Edward Haidal in Warminster, PA on March 19, 1976. After visiting her sister and brother-in law, Peggy and B Bob Kelly, they fell in love with the area and moved to Sequim in 1989. Her parents, the late Arch & Betty B Drylie soon followed. Dottie quickly embraced the Sequim community. She joined the Sequim Guild for Seattle Children’s Hospital, of which she becam became treasurer. Her love for children spread into many facets in her life, including CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate for Foster Children). She was also treasurer for PEO Chapter IV, P.A., and a member of MAC – Museum & Arts Center. Dottie & Ed were Ditchwalkers supporting the Sequim Irrigation Festival and enjoyed RVing with a fun group of friends. Dottie was supportive of anyone needing her help or tackling a committee project, but was always shy in accepting accolades. Her signature smile and twinkle in her eyes will be remembered by all who knew her kind spirit. She loved entertaining and her home was always welcoming to all. She enjoyed the Port Angeles Symphony and any restaurant within 50 miles. Her fellow SARC swimmers remember Dottie as a prankster of the “Bad Girls.” Most recently, Dottie was practicing traditional African Djembe drumming rhythms. The faster they drummed, the bigger her smile became. When she became unable to attend, the group disbanded. Dottie was the driving force for many groups of friends – all of whom miss her very much. Dottie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Mandy & Mark Jenson, and grandson Brandon; sister and brother-in-law, Peggy & Bob Kelly; brother John Scott Drylie, nephew Gerry Kelly; nieces Sara Kelly and Amanda & Jerrin Fiorini and their two sons, Sean and Brent. She is also survived by stepdaughters, Chris Glover and Denise Forbes and stepson, Stephen Haidal. A private graveside memorial will be held at Dungeness Cemetery with Dr. Scott Koenigsaecker, Sr. Pastor, Sequim Community Church, oﬃciating. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date for friends and family. Linde Family Funeral Services is in charge of arrangements. Contributions in Dottie’s memory may be made to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, 540 E. 8th St., Port Angeles, WA 98362.

Deficit gives economy the juice it needs
What’s all this talk about the deficit? Dino Rossi says “Congress is putting our economic future in jeopardy by continuing to spend money they don’t have,” and that “It’s very clear we’re on a fiscal edge.” We are on a fiscal edge, all right — one created by Wall Street. In this great recession, our jobs, our kids’ education and our quality of life all are eroding away. The one backstop keeping the economy from plunging into the next great depression is increased spending by the federal government. UEST We don’t need cuts, Dino, PINION we need public investments. John Burbank Let’s take the deficit for what it is: jobs, education, highways, health care, buses, university research, defense and aerospace. Rossi is objecting to stimulus spending that has created 1,700 jobs in Snohomish County. This includes projects ranging from the Arlington wastewater treatment plant upgrade and expansion, to replacing water mains in Startup, providing meals for seniors, hiring teachers and funding special education, paying correctional facility officers and improving I-5 north of Marysville. That is not peanuts. The federal deficit’s share of the gross domestic product (GDP) is 10 percent. That’s about one-third of what the proportional size of federal deficit was in 1943. (Share of GDP is the correct measurement to use, as an economic stimulus must be proportional to size of the economy. Sort of like making sure you have the right-sized wrench to loosen the wheel nuts when you change a tire.) If the federal deficit in 1943 was the same proportionate size as the current federal deficit, we very likely would have lost World War II. We simply would not have put enough economic juice into the war machine to defeat fascism. And certainly we would have long-term and high unemployment, stretching into decades. Unemployment during the Great Depression didn’t go away after one year or five years. In 1932 unemployment in our country was 24 percent, in 1935 it was 20 percent, in 1940 it was 15 percent. Then Pearl Harbor was attacked, we entered World War II, the federal deficit skyrocketed and by 1944 unemployment was down to 1 percent. For the next quarter-century it held at between 3 percent and 5 percent. How did the federal government help out in the Great Depression? We know about the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps, employment programs that put people to work building schools, water systems, dams, roads, trails and sidewalks. But these efforts were not enough. So while between a sixth and a quarter of workers languished without work for a decade, the federal government still did not spend enough money to make up for the pull-back by the private sector. The federal deficit was 4 percent of GDP in 1932, 4 percent in 1935 and 3 percent in 1940. What did put almost all Americans back to work in the 1940s was the massive increase in federal deficits. To defeat fascism, the federal government spent money, as Rossi says, “they don’t have.” The deficit reached 14 percent in 1942, 30 percent in 1943, 23 percent in 1944 and 22 percent in 1945. This spending also resulted in the investments and infrastructure that kept Americans at work for the next quarter-century. It enabled a post-war full employment private sector economy, and, as a result, post-war federal deficits practically disappeared. Now we are in the Great Recession, with official unemployment hovering between 9 percent and 10 percent. Corporate profit margins were 36 percent in the first quarter of this year, a record. But these corporations are not hiring, at least in our country. So when we grumble about the federal deficit being too high, we are just digging our recession deeper. What we need to do instead is launch entire new public initiatives for high-speed transit, new schools, an expanded Everett Community College that offers four-year degrees, replacement of outdated and worn-out water and sewer systems, and energy retrofits for public and private buildings. We need to double down on the stimulus to get us out of the economic doldrums. Only the federal government can provide the juice we need. It may not be World War II, but it is our lives, our families, our future and ultimately our private sector economy. That’s the road to recovery.

Interviewed by MARK ST.J. COUHIG Sequim Gazette
Sequim’s Gigi Thompson, nee Giselle Payet, is a native of Seychelles, an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. She’s lived on the Olympic Peninsula for more than 40 years but arrived in an unusual way. “I was a mail-order bride,” she says. Gigi, a beloved waitress at Sequim’s Sunshine Cafe, recently told her story, which began with a letter to the editor of the local newspaper in Victoria, capital city of the Seychelles. “I was 19 when a gentleman in Port Townsend saw a program on Channel 9 on the Seychelles. He went to the library and did
his research on the Seychelles and mail-order brides. Then he wrote to our local newspaper, in Victoria. A friend of mine wrote back to him and signed my name to the letter. The gentleman from Port Townsend started writing, and I asked him how he got my address. That’s how I found out my friend wrote to him. He wanted a picture of me in my bathing suit, but I was raised a good Catholic. You didn’t wear a swimsuit to the beach, you wore a dress. He sent a picture of himself, sitting in a chair.
See VERBATIM, page A-15
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR More for less I’ve been remiss in not publicly thanking and recognizing Thor and Thor’s Automotive Repair & Service for the truly outstanding service I received last month. At or later than 5 p.m., my pickup died and would not start. As an out-of-towner on a tight schedule (I needed to be in Eastern Washington the next day), I was desperate. I first called the dealer and was advised it would be “two or three days” before they could even look at it. Thor was recommended by another business owner. He willingly drove to where my pickup was, quickly diagnosed the problem, went back to get the new part and had me back in business in an hour! While I would have expected, and willingly paid, a large charge for the added service, Thor’s cost was less than I would have expected had I taken my pickup to the shop for the same repair work. This was truly a case of a professional person doing a professional job at a more than fair price. I hope I have the opportunity to repay the favor some day. Rob Dragnich Anchorage, Alaska
Great community spirit I would like to acknowledge the generosity of the volunteers and sponsors who made Saturday, Sept. 11, National Service Day and the United Way Day of Caring, a huge success in Sequim. One hundred thirty-two volunteers including community members, city of Sequim staff and Sequim City Council members donated a
total of 413.5 hours to city improvement projects. Projects included the painting of 40 fire hydrants, pulling weeds at June Robinson Park, clean-up and fence installation at the Police Department, weeding and laying bark at the Water Reuse Demonstration site near Carrie Blake Park, painting the skateboard park, traffic control and litter pick-up around the Sequim Avenue roundabout. Many local businesses generously donated goods and services to support the projects. A big thank you goes to the Port of Port Angeles, Costco, The Home Depot, Walmart, Frito Lay, Crumb Grabbers Bakery, Rainbow Girls, 101 Outpost, Rodda Paint and the Clallam Co-op (Co-op Farm & Garden) for their support. The event was embraced with a great sense of community spirit with many volunteers working beyond the designated time frame and many indicating that they want to participate again. Plans are under way for the next volunteer event on Earth Day, April 22, 2011. Thank you to everyone one involved and I look forward to seeing you at the next community volunteer event.

Verbatim From page A-14 We talked more and he asked for my hand in marriage. I told him, ‘In my country, you come to my parents or you write them a letter.’ So he did, and asked for my hand in marriage. Then my mom and dad, the three of us, sat in the living room. They said, ‘You’re of age. It’s up to you.’ So I did. No money was exchanged. He just had to sponsor me. I had all my papers, my green card. I spent three days and three nights on a liner going from Africa to New York, and then I flew from New York to Seattle. I was scared — I was terrified. The people on the plane were speaking so many different languages. I prayed the whole way. I got into Port Townsend and eight days later married at Mount Vernon, Wash. I was so sad, I cried the whole time. It was the first time I would be with a man. No mom, no dad around. By that time I was 20. I loved it (America) — all the buildings. It was amazing. I loved it ever since, especially here in Sequim. I go back to visit, but this is my home.” Everyone has a story and now they have a place to tell it.

Letters From page A-14 “one trick pony.” That can’t be said for many of his former colleagues in government and position, some of whom believe that a cop can’t be intellectual and discerning, even with two advanced degrees. Having worked with Bob and enjoyed his confidence since his arrival in Sequim, I have noted the petty politics that have pushed back at him, his initiatives and his public image. I also have observed his astute handling of interference and criticism with open-mindedness, tolerance and self-searching. In his role as acting city manager, he quickly gained respect of the city staff and astutely produced solution, albeit with only token credit, when budgetary woes were looming — duties well done. A few in this city are not fans of Bob, given that he has been an open and quite visible figure in government and civic activities. But the majority of people with whom he interacts are true fans and are concerned that Bob now has to seek employment in difficult times. I hope you find his contributions to your public readership so relevant and thought provoking as to disregard any potential push-back regarding his statement of opinion and that you continue his articulate column as input and invitation to open dialogue and insight in matters affecting Sequim.

Stop spending, stop deficits Last week Roy F. Wilson claimed Republican fiscal conservatism is delusional. Let’s get real. Spending more than you make creates a deficit. If not paid, deficits accumulate and become debt. Congress creates budgets, presidents can only sign or veto them. Since1981,Republicanscontrolled
the presidency, House and Senate at the same time for four years. Those years were 2003 through 2006 and a period in which the annual deficit declined from $400 billion to under $200 billion. To be fair, it’s best to measure debt in terms of gross domestic product. The average debt from 1960 to 2000 was 36.2 percent of GDP. In 2000, after six years of a Republican-controlled Congress, the debt was 35.1 percent of GDP. In 2007, the last budget passed by a Republican-controlled Congress, debt was 36.9 percent of GDP. In 2008, the first budget passed by the current Democrat-controlled Congress, the debt was 40.8 percent of GDP. In 2009, under a Democrat-controlled Congress and the first year of Obama’s failed stimulus, the debt was 53.0 percent of GDP. Under a Democrat-controlled House, Senate and presidency, based on the current budget and their proposals, the debt is projected by the Congressional Budget Office to be 79.6 percent of GDP in 2016 and 90 percent of GDP in 2020. This year alone, Democrats are adding over $1.5 trillion to the debt. These levels of debt are unsustainable and have to be stopped. Restore fiscal sanity to Congress by electing Republicans this year. Peter Heisel Sequim
America, bought and sold Congressman (Norm) Dicks, after his re-election, should give more serious thought to the concerns of Moveon.org and many others about the malignant influence of money on our elections, our government and our democracy. A Constitutional amendment was made necessary by the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision giving corporations and unions free rein to spend on elections as “citizens” whose elections and lobbying expenditures were expressions of free speech under the First
Amendment. America is in dire straits today because its democracy has been subverted by special interest money. The vote of the American people has been denied, abridged or nullified by allowing their elected representatives to accept money to influence their votes or policies. Voters, the people, have lost their voice in government. This denial or abridgement of our vote is just as destructive to democracy as preventing someone from voting for reason of sex, race or poll tax, all of which have been prohibited by previous Constitutional amendments. As a result, powerful interests, not the voters, promote or prevent legislation or policies that have had disastrous effects on our nation including: unnecessary or mismanaged wars; massive increases in the national debt by tax cuts and profligate federal spending; deregulation that caused the collapse of the U.S. financial system, the economy and public safety; and willful neglect of our economic recovery, Social Security, health care, education, environmental preservation and infrastructure. When we lose the right to an honest vote, we lose an important part of our citizenship. We need a powerful amendment to our Constitution that prohibits the payment of money or anything of value or the promise thereof to candidates for federal office, federal legislators, federal judges or any federal official.

Join with me I attended a political debate which 4Cs conducted at the Boys & Girls Club, Aug. 23. Candidates for Position 1 & 2, 24th District, Washington state House of Representatives. Candidates Dan Gase, Kevin Van De Wege, Steve Tharinger and Jim McEntire debated questions moderated by Pete Church. In reviewing the results of the primary, I was really surprised at the number of 24th District residents who voted for incumbents. Hasn’t anyone done any homework on the candidates? Rep Van De Wege voted to override the citizens vote and increased taxes in violation of I-960. He also voted to join a convention of states that would give up all of Washington electoral votes in a presidential election. Over 50 percent of his campaign contributions have come from out of the district. He said it did not matter where the money comes from. I hope you do not believe that. Campaign contributions indebt politicians to those that contribute. Commissioner Steve Tharinger is going to keep his day job as Clallam County commissioner if he is elected to the Washington state House of Representatives. In my mind, that is a direct conflict of interest. He should decide which job he wants and not both. Tharinger said last night that in today’s politics, talking about liberty does not matter. In my prospective, if you lose your liberty then government becomes worse than it is now. Also, you should remember that Tharinger is a huge supporter for giving your water to the fish. How about the people? It should also be noted that Tharinger is receiving a considerable amount of his campaign contributions from out of the district. He is also of the opinion that it does not matter where the money comes from. He is also endorsed by some SEIU locals, who represent
government employees. Dan Gase and Jim McEntire are, in my opinion, far more inclined to represent us and give us a voice in the way Washington state is run. I urge all of you in joining me, vote Gase and McEntire. Ken Thomasson Sequim
Whose fault? With today’s diversions, e.g., 200-plus channels of TV, iPods, computers, cell phones, Blackberries, video and computer games, a myriad organized sports for almost all K-12 grades and both genders, et al., coupled with unlimited fat- and calorie-laden fast foods, our society is becoming more lethargic in both mind and body, with much less emphasis on the basics of education and learning of job skills. Emphasis on constant testing, as prescribed by the Leave No Child Behind Act, is not a reliable gauge of learning but it is probably a good gauge for rote recitation. That act, through test standardization, leaves too many kids behind! And Special Education (for the kids left behind) is becoming increasingly difficult to fund adequately. Today, as many as 40-plus percent (a huge number!) of K-12 students in many states do not graduate from high school, and it’s not all the fault of their teachers. It’s mostly the fault of their parents, who enforce few rules for their children and who provide little motivation for education. In many cases, parents are unable even to do their children’s homework and/or are unwilling to take the time to help them. The best high schools in the U.S. are located on military bases, e.g., Fort Campbell, Ky., where commandants mandate parental assistance for and social involvement with their student children. Our public school districts and local parents could learn much from these examples, to the benefit of all K-12 students and our future society. Richard Hahn Sequim

Sequim man arrested after high-speed pursuit State Patrol say driver exceeded 90 mph during 11-mile chase Sequim Gazette
A 20-year-old Sequim man was arrested after an 11-mile high-speed chase Sunday, Sept. 5, from Dryke Road in Sequim to the end of the pavement on Deer Park Road in Port Angeles. Sean Anderson pleaded not guilty in Clallam County Superior Court on Sept. 10 to charges of attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle and driving under the influence.
According to the Washington State Patrol, a trooper saw a car driven by Anderson in the westbound lane of U.S. Highway 101 near Dryke Road and clocked it at 80 mph in a 55-mph zone. The trooper, Officer Grant Clark, who was driving eastbound, turned around and followed Anderson with his lights flashing. Anderson sped up to 90 mph. Clark turned on his siren and requested additional units for the pursuit.
Anderson’s car swerved in the lanes before he turned south on Deer Park Road, where he drove in the north and southbound lanes for eight miles. Clark said Anderson was going 80 mph up the road, which is zoned 35 and 45 mph. When he reached the end of the pavement, Anderson failed to negotiate a turn and crashed his car. Anderson and a passenger got out and ran, with Clark in pursuit, according to the report. After he yelled at Anderson and displayed his stun gun, Anderson stopped and
was placed in custody, Clark said. Anderson was identified by his suspended Arizona driver’s license, Clark said in the report. Anderson was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, eluding a police officer, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, obstructing a law enforcement officer and driving while license suspended. He was booked into the Clallam County jail where he remains in lieu of $5,000 bail. A trial is scheduled for Nov. 1.
Land trust hires farmland conservationist specialist by ROBBIE MANTOOTH For the Sequim Gazette
Nor th Olympic Land Trust’s first staff member specializing in farmland protection is putting priority on getting acquainted with area property owners during her first days on the job. “I’m especially looking forward to getting to know people who care deeply about special qualities of the North Olympic Peninsula,” said Colleen Teevin, the new farmland conservation and development specialist. “I’m very excited to share my personal and professional passions and experience to help North Olympic Land Trust protect special lands,” Teevin said. Land Trust Executive Director Greg Good said he believes the organization has found an outstanding leader to help sustain local agriculture and all the work of the organization. “After the merger in which Friends of the Fields became a division of the land trust, we wanted a staff member to be able to focus on farmland protection while also helping with fundraising and out-

reach through grants, individual and business supporters and events,” Good said. “With our enlarged staff, the land trust will be much better able to work with our other partners to protect qualities that make our area a great place to live.” The executive director said the pace of land protection in recent months made the need for additional staff hours clear even before the merger. “Out of the 2,260 acres the
land trust has protected since local citizens established the organization in 1990, more than 500 were protected in 2009, and we’re on track to protect another 500 this year, so we’re really on a roll,” Good said. “The need to preserve farmland is becoming increasingly obvious. More than 75 percent of our county’s farmland has been lost to commercial and residential development in the last 50 years.” In addition to farmland, the land trust protects habitat for salmon and other wildlife, sustainable commercial timberland, clean water and air, scenic vistas, open space and cultural heritage, he said.
Nonprofit experience Before working on local food issues in Vermont, Teevin was program director for the nonprofit Environmental Resource Center of Sun Valley, Idaho. She also worked in two AmeriCorps positions. One included helping develop connections between local far mers and potential consumers and the other involved working with native groups in Alaska on natural resource issues.
Teevin completed a master’s degree in resource conservation at the University of Montana, where she was a research assistant in the School of Forestry and Conservation and studied collaboration and consensus building involving federal and state agencies, nongovernmental organizations and the general public regarding environmental concerns. Her Bachelor of Arts is in cultural anthropology from Washington State University. The land trust’s staff members, in addition to Good and Teevin, are Michele d’Hemecourt, conservation director, and Lorrie Campbell, stewardship manager. The land trust typically protects special qualities of land through permanent legal agreement with private property owners who continue to own and use the land until they sell it or it is bequeathed to their heirs. The organization also owns a small number of properties. More information is available from www.nolt.org or 417-1815. Reservations for monthly overview programs can be made by phoning the office.

‘It took us back a few years’ Sequim class of 1950 holds reunion by MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette
The 60th reunion of the Sequim High School class of 1950 returned them to familiar ground. On Sept. 17, the former students now ages 77 and 78, toured the recently remodeled old high school. “It took us back a few years,” said Wilma Johnson, reunion coordinator. “It’s basically where our classes were, too.” Students in Riley Stites’ building trades class set up old yearbooks, class pictures, a history display of Sequim and led tours for the graduates. “His students were very nice,” Johnson said. “I thoroughly enjoyed it.” Stites and his skills center students have worked four years on the building. He said they have more work upstairs in the 16,000-square-foot facility built in 1928. Lea Hopson, 17, said looking through the old yearbooks was cool. “It’s crazy to see how everything looked back then,” Hopson said. Jerry Anguili shared the nostalgia. He remembered in chemistry class his teacher Norma Allertz telling his friend and fellow graduate Dave Jones not to take a tube out of a beaker. Jones did anyway and it exploded, covering him
Sequim High School had a much different look in 1950. The 16,000-square-foot facility was built in 1928 and used until most of the newer campus was constructed in 1967. Sequim Gazette photos by Matthew Nash
Fourteen of 40 graduates attended the Sequim High School class of 1950 reunion. A few remained in the Sequim and Port Angeles area since graduating.

other stories and caught up with each other’s lives during the school visit. “It was good to talk about our stories and old teachers that we once dreaded,” Johnson said. “Now we know they meant a lot to us.”
Jerry Anguili of Sequim signs the 1950 graduation class photo at the old Sequim High School. Anguili said he’s never lived more than two miles from where he is now. “Some might say I was never smart enough to find my way out of here,” Anguili joked.
Sequim’s class sizes have grown dramatically since 1950. There were 40 senior graduates then. Now about 200 graduate each year. Johnson said some graduates couldn’t make the event, chose not to come or have died. The class has held reunions after 20, 40, 50 and 55 years. A few of the graduates have lived in Sequim and Port Angeles most of their lives. Beverly Hendrickson said her family has continued living here and three generations have graduated from Sequim High School. Anguili said he’s never lived more than two miles from Sequim, minus a threemonth fishing trip in Alaska. He worked at his own business, Tire Service Company,
for almost 27 years, which was a block from the center of Sequim. “Some might say I was never smart enough to find my way out of here,” Anguili joked. Clyde Lamb said he lived here half way through his eighth-grade year through graduation before moving to California. In high school, he played football and worked seven days a week milking cows and testing milk. After Sequim, he went into the Navy and then met his wife, Patricia, before a long career with Boeing.

Leonard Beil, a former teacher of agriculture and woodworking, attended the dinner as well.
A total of 29 people attended the festivities. Johnson said the reunion was a nice time for everyone. Reach Matthew Nash at mnash@sequimgazette. com.
Honored at halftime The graduates had a laid back weekend despite bad weather. They were guests of honor at the Wolves’ football game where former players and a yell leader were honored at halftime. “We got drenched but it was fun,” Johnson said. Prior to the game, they held a gathering in the high school cafeteria for refreshments. On Saturday, they met

Start your own dairy Bringing dairy goats back to the peninsula
Sequim Gazette staff
by MARK ST.J. COUHIG Sequim Gazette
It’s time for dairy goats to make a comeback on the Olympic Peninsula. That’s the word from Wendy and Hannah Fox, cheerleaders-in-chief for all things caprine. The mother and daughter duo are putting a surprising amount of work — and personal resources — into the effort. The Foxes are starting up a new 4-H chapter to promote the raising of dairy goats and all barnyard animals. Those who are interested actually can park their beasts at the Foxes’ 8-acre spread on U.S. Highway 101 just east of Blyn. There’s only one catch: you must feed and groom your animals. After all, it’s in raising the animals that you gain the most benefit. “It teaches so many things,” Wendy said, “not just husbandry.” “A lot of the 4-H clubs are horse-orientated,” she said. “We’re going to have goats, chickens, pigs — and horses and dogs. We’ll also have sewing, poetry, even politics,” she said. “It’s not just about farm animals, though farm animals are fun.”
Delicious benefits The Foxes have two Alpine dairy goats and milk them twice daily. The resulting three-quarters of a gallon of milk is strained, then used for multiple purposes, including drinking. “We make cheese, soap,

Hannah Fox, 16, milks Yvette, one of two dairy goats on the Fox farm. Sequim Gazette photo by Mark Couhig give it to the dogs and chickens … everyone loves goat milk,” Wendy said. She said the goat milk is easier to digest. “People who are allergic to cow’s milk can often drink goat milk with fewer side effects.” To make cheese, you only need to add the appropriate culture and flavors. For a soft cheese, “it’s pretty much ready immediately,” Wendy said. Hard cheese must be aged. The Foxes don’t pasteurize the milk, noting the process “kills a lot of good things.” “It’s easy to do,” Wendy said, “but it can change the flavor.” Because the Foxes control carefully what the goats eat, “you always know what
you’re getting,” Wendy said. Wendy says while backyard cows and chickens are returning to homes across the U.S., on the peninsula pygmy goats have replaced dairy goats. “Pygmy goats are mostly intended for pets,” Wendy said. Some pygmy goats can be milked, including the Nigerian dwarf variety. The Foxes will assist those who would like to purchase and raise goats and other backyard animals. For more information, call Wendy Fox at 683-8414 or drop a line to sunshinefox@ msn.com. Reach Mark Couhig at mcouhig@sequimgazette. com.
Walk a mile in my shoes. Sign up now for the 2010 Friends of the Poor Walk. The event will be held from noon-4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 26, at the Sequim High School track. The track is at Third Avenue and Fir Street in Sequim. The event is held each year to help raise funds to relieve poverty and to raise awareness of the plight of the poor. The walk, which is conducted at venues across the U.S., began in 2008 to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. More than $1.2 million was raised in 2009. Walkers are encouraged to make a personal monetary donation and to collect pledges from supporters. All pledges made via the organization’s website are earmarked for the council or conference the walker chooses, which means your funds can be used to help the poor in Sequim. Go to www.svdp friendsofthepoorwalk.org to register. Walker registration forms also will be available at the event. The event is sponsored by St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Sequim, Queen of Angels in Port Angeles and St. Mary Star of the Sea in Port Townsend. Revenues will support efforts in all three towns. The dollars can be used for home visits, disaster relief, burial fees, clothing and more. For more information, call Dick Conger at 683-2718 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Friday night in the pouring rain, the Sequim Wolves shrugged off their loss to the Meridian Trojans and showed the Klahowya Eagles what they can deliver, winning their Olympic League opener 53-0. Sequim (1-0 in league play, 2-1 overall) got 257 yards rushing and two touchdown runs each from
Isaac Yamamoto runs through the Klahowya defense on Friday night.
Drew Rickerson and Frank Catelli, while the defense held Klahowya to just 13 yards. The Wolves won this one for Joey Hall, who is recovering from a concussion in the game against the Meridian Trojans. “You never know when it could be your last play,” Hall said, “so give it all you got.”

Sequim cyclist spins to world championship by MICHAEL DASHIELL Sequim Gazette
Even after a national cycling championship in 2008, and even after a fifth-place finish at the world championship in 2009, Leigh Thompson said she had a
confidence problem. That’s when her coach threw her a new idea: Separate the training process from results. “That actually freed me,” said Thompson, an author and professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in
Illinois, who spends her summers training on Sequim roads. “If you get focused on results,” she said, “you can’t ever be happy.” Perhaps that explains her re-
nonleague — in 19 seasons. “The P.A. girls were very disappointed because they beat us so easily during the jamboree and their goal all summer long was to beat us in league,” Sequim coach Jennie Webber Heilman said. “Hopefully we can beat them when it counts.” Maddy Zbaraschuk led the Wolves with 10 kills, six blocks and three aces while Haleigh Harrison added 10 kills and three blocks. Taylor Balkan chipped in with 34 assists and 11 digs.
Husky Stadium was rocking last Saturday as the Nebraska Cornhuskers traveled to Seattle to take on the U.W. Huskies in a gridiron contest that drew national interest. The game marked the first sellout in several years and there were sections of all purple and all red. The stadium, which is scheduled to go under major repair, is in its 90th season and is showing signs of wear and tear but that didn’t matter to the throng that showed up. The Huskies came into the game 21-20-2 all-time against teams from the Big 12 conference but were only 3-3-1 against the vaunted Nebraska program. The last U.W. win against the ’Huskers was 1992. In recent years, Nebraska stuffed the Dawgs 55-7 in Lincoln in 1998. Hopes were high for an upset of the eighth-ranked Nebraska visitors and Washington is 133-53-2 at home since 1980. Add to the mix that Nebraska was on the road for the first time this year after easy wins at home against Western Kentucky and Idaho, and U.W. fans had a right to be hopeful. After the loss to Brigham Young to open the season, Husky fans were wondering if the win against Syracuse (41-20) was the result of huge improvement or whether the Orange was not that good. The atmosphere before the game was much like that of last year when USC came to town and Washington pulled off a big upset. Due the fact that they are building a giant mass transit station in front of the stadium, 600 parking spaces have been lost, so there were Husky tailgate parties all over the area. Nebraska fans snapped up their allotted 8,000 tickets, but some Husky fans must’ve “sacrificed” their tickets as it was estimated there were 20,000 fans dressed in red. The Husky band serenaded

The Wolves are still the top dogs in this rivalry — but just barely. Just one week after getting beaten by Port Angeles at their own jamboree, Sequim rebounded to edge the Roughriders in a four-set classic Thursday evening. The Wolves (2-1) prevailed in the nonleague game, 25-19, 24-26, 27-25 and 26-24. Sequim hasn’t lost to Port Angeles in a regular match — league or

EWU’s Inferno: quite an eye-catcher
REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK Michael Dashiell I’ve never seen a game at the University of Michigan’s Big House. Never saw a game at The Swamp, the University of Florida’s home turf. Never took in a game at the Cornhuskers’ stadium when I lived in Nebraska. But I’ve seen “The Inferno.” I spent last weekend helping my stepdaughter move into her dorm at Eastern Washington University in Cheney. As part of the “Welcome to the Freshmen”/”Leave Your Children and Money Here” weekend, the fine folks at Eastern scheduled their biggest home game of the year, against the vaunted Montana Grizzlies. And while Eagles fans understandably were psyched for the match-up on the field — Montana was ranked No. 6 in the Football Championship Subdivision poll, Eastern was No. 18 — the big story of the day/weekend/ season was and remains, The Inferno. The newly-refurbished field at Eastern now is named Roos Field after Michael Roos, the NFL player (Tennessee Titans offensive tackle) who donated a huge chunk of change to redo the facility. The project includes a 360-foot by 160-foot turf field — colored red.
Blood or tomato? In some light, The Inferno looks blood red; in others, tomato. Either way, people say it’s either awful or awfully awesome. Blending turf to match a school rather than traditional green isn’t unheard of. Most notable is Boise State’s Smurf-colored turf. As Spokesman Review columnist John Blanchette aptly and wittily noted in his pre-game prose, the field

It was the Sequim Gazette photos by Michael Dashiell first game on their new red turf, nicknamed “The Inferno.” would become either a point of pride or a point of embarrassment for the school. I figured it would take some time getting used to watching a football game in tomato soup but I sure wanted to be one of the 11,000 or so to catch the first Inferno game. I drove by the stadium a day before and was shocked at how unreal, how distracting and, frankly, how ugly it first appeared. Well, at least the team would be dressed in black, or some sort of black-white-red combo, right? Eh, not so much. On game night, the Eagles raced on the field in full-on red unis. I suppose it’s hard to tackle what you can’t see, huh? Sitting at the south end zone for nearly the entirety of the game, it took about 10 minutes for me to stop gawking at the turf and focus back onto the action. After a few nauseating minutes, The Inferno simply turned into The Field. And good thing, too: This turned out to be one heck of a game.
A fine finish Eastern’s field wasn’t the
Rock the red? Eastern fans show their love for the new red turf at Saturday’s game against Montana. only thing that seemed to be on fire Saturday night. If he never plays another down in his Eastern career, running back Taiwan Smith still may be regarded as one of the Eagles’ best. Lightning quick and Jason Bourne-elusive, Smith was electric that night, tearing up the new red turf for 221 yards and a score. He was particularly key in a final drive in which, after battling to a 27-27 tie, the Eagles

romped through the Montana defense into the Grizzlies’ red zone, and got a Mike Jarrett 31-yard field goal with four seconds left. Then, a bit of weirdness. Montana, trying to channel some sort of David Copperfield-like magic, tried to score with the ensuing kickoff using a series of haphazard laterals. After some nervous moments, the Eagles made a final tackle and the place went nuts. Screams deafened the night sky. Players danced. And thousands of fans rushed the field, including yours truly. (Hey, I’m an all-out Eagle fan now, OK?) Only, the game wasn’t over. Referees called an unsportsmanlike penalty on the Eagle fan base for treading on the new, red turf. Montana got the ball on their 40-yard-line for one
untimed play. But Montana quarterback Justin Roper was flushed from the pocket, got stripped of the ball by Tyler Jolley and saw Eagle Renard Williams scoop it up and run in for a touchdown. You can guess what happened next. The fans rushed the field. No flag this time. For the first time in five seasons, Eastern could claim a win over their despised rivals from Missoula. For the first time in months, people are talking about Eastern’s football team for their play, not their gaudy home décor. It gets me thinking: should every team do up their field in home colors? What do you think, Sequim fans? An all-gold football/soccer field? All purple? Reach Michael Dashiell at miked@sequimgazette. com.

Eastern fans storm the field Saturday — for the second time.
From page B-1 fans in the Fun Zone before the game, then the team, which used to take chartered buses right to the dressing room entrance, now has the buses drop them off at the Zone where they march through the fans in their Husky sweats, right to the center of the field where they pause on the big purple W before heading to the dressing area. The Husky band put on its usual good pre-game show and the forming of the flag pole and running the huge flag up the pole to be unfurled always puts a lump in my throat. It was even greater as two U.S. Navy jets did a fly-by at the end of the anthem. Even the Big Red fans were in awe. Speaking of awe, not only were there Big Red fans, there were 18 writers in the press box covering the Cornhuskers.
Big Red is bigger, badder The Nebraska boys looked bigger, stronger and much faster than the Huskies and that was just during the warm-ups. I expected the Huskies to hang in the game if they made some big plays but still didn’t believe Nebraska was that good until kickoff. Washington took the ball on the 20 as the kickoff almost went out of the closed end zone. After one first down, Heisman Trophy hopeful Jake Locker threw a pass down the middle that was picked off and returned to the Husky 48. Freshmen red-shirt Taylor Martinez became a Heisman nominee in my mind, folks. A 24-yard rush by Rex Burkhead, then a 24-yard pass to Mike McNeill and it was 7-0. The Huskies went three and out from the 20 after the kickoff, then the Huskers scored on three plays from their own 37, the big one a Martinez pass of 55 yards then a 1-yard smash for the score. Washington came back with an 80-yard drive to score, but it was evident that Nebraska was the better team and they went on to a 56-21 win as three Nebraska backs gained more than 100 yards. Don’t give up on Washington just yet. On the two-deep offensive roster were seven seniors, seven juniors, five sophs and seven freshmen. On defense, U.W. has six seniors, five juniors and 10 freshmen, seven of them true (first year, not red-shirted) rookies. The Husky program is only in it second year under Steve Sarkisian. Will they reach Nebraska status soon? Yes, but maybe not as soon as the USC game in Los Angeles on Oct. 2. Reach Scooter Chapman at scooter@olypen. com.

Why golf is a ‘gentleman’s sport’ I came across this story the other day and just had to share it: “Young golfer loses tourney but wins fans with honesty after reporting extra club in bag” By Carrie Antlfinger Associated Press Zach Nash was shocked when he discovered he had one too many golf clubs in his bag a couple hours after winning a junior Wisconsin PGA tournament. But rules are rules, and the 14-year-old from southern Wisconsin made a decision that might surprise some people: He disqualified himself and surrendered his medal. “I knew right away I couldn’t live with myself if I kept this medal, so it was pretty instantaneous,” Nash said during a phone interview from his home in Waterford on Wednesday, his first day of high school. Nash shot a 77 to win the boys 13-14 age division at the Milwaukee County Parks Tour Invitational, which is run by the Wisconsin PGA Section, on Aug. 11. He beat 31 other players in his division, all while his grandparents from Iowa were watching. After his victory, Nash went to the Rivermoor Golf Club — where he played 36 holes nearly every day this
SHORT TAKES John Lucas summer — to practice more and talk to one of his mentors, Chris Wood, the club’s head golf professional. “I was showing everybody my medal and then Chris and I went and we were having a soda and he said ‘Hey, whose club is this? And I said ‘my friend’s.’ And he said ‘This makes 15.’ I was in shock after that,” Nash said. The penalty for breaking the rule, called rule 4-4, is two strokes for each hole played with more than 14 clubs, with a maximum of four penalty strokes. But since he didn’t notice his extra club during the tournament, a penalty wasn’t added. That meant he signed an incorrect scorecard, which he knew disqualified him. Nash said golf prides itself on honesty and players calling penalties on themselves. While the decision was clear, he said he couldn’t help but cry a bit in front of Wood. Wood had to call Nash’s father, Bob, to pick him up.
Later that night, Nash called Andy Landenberger, junior tour director for the WPGA, to explain what happened. He sent back the medal, which Landenberger said he would present to runner-up Dane Reinhardt, who shot an 80. Nash, who has been golfing for about three years, said a friend spent the night at his house before the tournament and left a 5-wood club, and he put it in his bag not realizing it made a total of 15. Wood said Nash made him and the club proud. “I think most people — not just kids — would have tried to justify in their mind having the extra clubs in their bag and not using them as an excuse to not call and disqualify themselves,” Wood said. Nash’s father said his son is a regular teenager — he talks back to his parents, picks on his brothers — and was a bit surprised the teenager didn’t consider, just for a moment, keeping the mistake to himself. But he said he did the right thing and he and his wife were proud. “When I first heard it, when he told me the whole story, I thought, ‘Wow, you are doing the right thing,’” Bob Nash said. “You have to keep doing what’s right. But in the back of my mind, I’m thinking ‘If you didn’t say anything, the standing wouldn’t change.’”
The boy’s honest deed was first reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Nash started his freshman year Wednesday at Waterford Union High School and plans to go out for the golf team. He played in another tournament on Tuesday — and counted his clubs three times. The faux pas has made him a better golfer, he said. “It kind of got me to be more aware of all the rules, especially 4-4,” he said. (Reprinted with permission from the Associated Press) Rules teaser: In match play, a player’s ball is in a bunker while his opponent is on the putting green, further away. The player plays his ball and the opponent recalls the shot. Before he replays, he rakes the bunker. Ruling? Answer to last column’s teaser: In stroke play, a player tees off and the ball strikes a tree and comes to rest in the teeing ground. Before playing, the player uses his foot to step on some high grass behind his ball. Ruling? No penalty.

Sequim slips in loss to Buccaneers
Wolves open with win Sequim Gazette staff
Sequim’s swimming crew started the season on a positive note, splashing the Klahowya Eagles 85-56 on Thursday, Sept. 16, in Silverdale. Three Sequim individuals earned district-qualifying times, as did both of the Wolves’ 200 medley and 200 free relay squads. Wolf Paige Pearsall swam to district-qualifying marks in the 100 butterfly (1:12) and 200 individual medley (2:32), as did Rachel Hardy in the 50 free (27.68) and Gianna Vennetti in the 100 breaststroke (1:24). Cassandra Calderon picked up a win in the 100 free and helped both 200 free and 400 free relay teams earn first-place swims. Sequim took first in nine of 11 events. “So many of our brand new swimmers had great swims in their first ever swim meet,” said Sequim coach Susan Craig. “It was exciting to see them jump right in and get it figured out to be assets to the team. I especially love to see their great team spirit and how they cheer and support their teammates.” Though neither team had any divers compete, Craig said she hopes to see Sequim have one or two divers in upcoming meets. The Wolves were slated to swim at Bremerton on Sept. 21 — results were unavailable at press time. Sequim hosts Kingston in the first home meet of the 2010 season at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, at the Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center. Sequim is at Port Townsend a week later (Sept. 30)
Wolves look to rebound with matches vs. PT, PA Sequim Gazette staff
Sequim may be a perennial league title contender, but this season they’ve got some competition. The Wolves fell to 1-2 after a 4-3 loss to Kingston on Sept. 13. Mallory Maloney and Evan Hill both won straight-set single matches while Byron Boots and Michael Lee topped Kingston’s top doubles duo of Richie Sander and T revor Shuey in three sets (4-6, 6-1, 6-1), but the BOOTS Buccaneers showed their depth by winning the three remaining doubles matches and the No. 3 singles match, a three-set Erik Reichert win against Sequim’s Andrew Gunstone. Rain shut Sequim out of a match with Port Townsend later in the week and M. LEE the Wolves were scheduled to play at Bremerton on Sept. 20, but poor weather may postpone both matches once again. Sequim was slated to host Port Angeles on Sept. 22 and play in Silverdale against Klahowya on Sept. 24.
Wolves get first win After a season-opening loss to North Kitsap, Sequim exacted some revenge.
The Wolves clobbered North Mason 7-0 on Sept. 10, losing just one of 15 sets in the process. Maloney led the squad with a win in No. 1 singles play, downing top ’Dog A.J. Barker 6-3 and 6-0. Boots and Hill added straight-set singles wins. Donovan and Michael Lee chipped in with a win in No. 1 doubles play, losing just two games in a 6-1, 6-1 sweep of Brandt Franzel and Martin Garland.
Vikings edge Wolves Before the season, Sequim coach Mark Textor figured his team would have a close, tough first match with the Poulsbo squad. The season-opening match lived up to the billing, with host North Kitsap taking the first meeting of the campaign 4-3 on Sept. 8, winning three doubles matches. Sequim’s Boots and Hill each scored straight-set wins. Boots topped Tyler Swanboro 6-1, 6-1 while Hill ousted Jacob Coover 6-1 and 6-0. Donovan and Michael Lee teamed up to give Sequim its lone doubles victory, topping Vikings Alex Olsen and Zack Turley 6-3 and 6-4. But North Kitsap got key wins in No. 1 singles (Zack Fohn tipped Sequim’s Maloney 6-3, 6-1) and in No. 2 doubles, as Sebastian Ford and Chris Gracey outlasted Sequim’s Gunstone and Duncan Skinner, 6-3, 3-6 and 6-2.

Cycling From page B-1 action this August when the 50-year-old American won the women’s Masters division at the world championship cycling time trials in Tirol, Austria. “I was a total emotional basket case,” Thompson recalls three weeks later, back in the United States. “My husband came over and said, ‘Congratulations, you won.’ I said, ‘Please don’t lie to me.’ Somehow I just thought this can’t be true. I thought I did a decent job, a respectable job. I started crying. “Now that I have a result, it feels like it worked.”
No drafting allowed For the casual cycling fan only familiar with the Tour de France, the time trial is a different kind of race altogether. In the Tour and similar competitions, using other riders — including teammates — to “draft” behind is all a part of the strategy. With the time trial, Thompson explains, it’s all about the power and persistence of the rider. “It’s known as ‘The Race of Truth.’ I think that means the strongest rider ... wins.” The time trial is so focused on individual performance that they don’t allow riders to get within 10 meters of another, or they’d be considered to be drafting. So excruciating is the pain and focus of riding for those 20 kilometers each cyclist raced that some riders find it hard to move afterward. “You should almost collapse (by the end of a time trial),” Thompson said. “It’s kind of hard to train yourself to do that.” Many times, Thompson recalls, she’d have doubts as she pedaled along those rural roads out in Dungeness. “When I think back on all

those mornings when I started my simulated race training at the end of Three Crabs Road, went along Marine Drive and out past the spit, I feel that Sequim put me in position to win, so to speak.”
Full-time, part-time Thompson teaches full time at Northwestern and lives just north of Chicago, but she and her husband Robert Weeks keep a summer home in Sequim. It was during her schooling at the University of Washington that she and Robert discovered the Olympic Peninsula. “We made commitment to return to the Pacific Northwest,” Thompson said. “We just fell in love with Sequim, with the water, the mountains. I love the fact you can hear the cows mooing.” After school lets out, Thompson is back on her bike, mentally mapping out the course she’s to have in Austria weeks later. “My key training in Sequim was in June and July to try to gear up for that event,” she said. “I picked out this great stretch starting at end of Three Crabs (Road). I would just go as hard as I could. There isn’t a lot of cars and traffic, and people there are very friendly.” Her training included racing to the eastern end of Port Williams Road toward the
beach, racing up the hill, then back down and up again. “I must have gone up and down that hill 250 times (this summer),” she said. “It’s a great place where you have to go really hard. Some days I couldn’t do 100 percent.” As a treat, she said, she’d do a meal at downtown Sequim’s Oak Table Café.
The world stage Thompson said she needed a bit of a confidence boost before competing once again at the world competition, taking on other top masters division (ages 30-plus) riders. Thompson said that after analyzing her races she knew she had to get better at certain weaknesses, such as a midrace turnaround. “I tend to be more cautious,” she said. Odd, for a professor whose classes include such courses as negotiations
and decision making and creativity. That’s why encouragement from Thompson’s husband was key. Weeks, an engineer by trade and an established rider himself, Thompson said, pushed her just enough during training to pull out the win in Austria. “He’s so critical — if I’ve accomplished anything, it’s because of him,” she said. Following the win, Thompson strode atop a podium as she joined other winners in receiving medals and coveted “rainbow” jerseys. Though not displaying the array of typical rainbow colors, these jerseys are special in cycling circles. Unlike national championship jerseys, which are worn for a year and then put away, world champions are allowed to wear their rainbow garb anytime they please. The jersey was nice, Thompson said, but the best part of the ceremony was seeing the American flag raised. “I’m a very patriotic person — I know what those flags mean to a lot of people.” “That was the greatest moment of my life, actually.” After reaching the pinnacle of masters time trial cycling, Thompson plans to keep on riding. “I’m all pumped up now,” she said. “I love competing, I love racing but I haven’t thought about the calendar for 2011 at this point yet. I know something will be on it.”

Fifty-five high school students from West Sound Academy line up in the foggy weather on Sept. 16 before hiking to the New Dungeness Lighthouse. They stayed at the Dungeness Recreation Area campground for their all-school camp out.
West Sound Academy in Poulsbo brought 86 students in grades six-12 to the Dungeness Recreation Area for its all-school fall camp out Sept. 15-17. Staff said the trip was to promote unity and community service among the students. On Sept. 16, middle-schoolers played icebreaker games while 55 high-schoolers hiked to the New Dungeness Lighthouse and picked up trash along the way. Thirteen international students, from China, Egypt, Germany, India, the Philippines and Ukraine, attended. Some of them experienced a marine environment for the first time while on the trip. This was the school’s first fall retreat in the Sequim area. For more on West Sound Academy, go to www.west soundacademy.org.

• Sequim student ambassadors participated in a walk-athon fundraising event on Sunday, Sept. 12, at Railroad Bridge Park. They walked between Railroad Bridge Park and Robin Hill Farm and back to raise money for their air- and land-tour costs of $2,296 each. They need an additional $200 for food and incidentals during the tour portion of their trip to Sequim’s sister city of Shiso, Japan. After their tour of Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara and Himeji, students will spend four days in Shiso at the homes of the Japanese students that they host here early in October. The students will leave for Japan on Oct. 28. Before then, they will sponsor a spaghetti dinner as one last fundraising event. Details will follow on the spaghetti dinner. The Sequim student ambassadors host 14 students and three chaperones from Shiso from Oct. 1-5. This is an annual educational exchange that dates back to 1995. From Oct. 1-3, the mayor of Shiso, three city officials and four citizens also will be visiting Sequim. — Karen L.

SEQUIM MIDDLE SCHOOL • Report by Riesa Sumida, ASB public relations officer: The first day of school at Sequim Middle School was indescribable. All of Town Center glowed with 780 yellow paper stars. The ASB officers and Ms. Karapostoles worked for hours making stars for each student and staff member and a huge poster that announced “SMS” Shining Stars! Everyone had fun trying to find their star. It was like a mixture of happiness and excitement! You could see kids running up to their friends, hugging them left and right like they hadn’t seen each other in years. All around, you could see WEB leaders in their purple WEB shirts helping the sixth-graders and some of the new kids to find their classes. At the end of the day, guys and girls crowded into the locker rooms to get ready for cross -country, volleyball and football tryouts to start. Mikey Cobb, ASB president, Miguel Moroles, ASB vice president, Brandon Fulmer, ASB secretary, Victoria Cummins, ASB treasurer, and I, the public relations officer, went each period to Mrs. Williams and Mrs. MacDonald’s sixthgrade language arts classes to hand out the welcome gifts that the ASB council and their advisors helped make. Each period, two of the ASB officers would go to each classroom and hand out the gifts to all of the students. The welcoming gifts were boxes of crayons with a label on them that said “Welcome to
the Timberwolf Pack. Use every color in the box while you are at SMS.” The ASB is so excited about the upcoming months and all the activities they have planned already. Soon the first-period classes will be electing representatives and alternates to help organize and run the fun events we have on the calendar, including spirit days and harvest festival. The annual magazine sales drive begins Sept. 28. This fundraiser supports athletic teams and extracurricular activities, including harvest festival, cocoa mornings, movie nights, school dances and skate parties. Community support is greatly appreciated. The first volleyball game is at Chimacum on Sept. 27. The kickoff football game is Sept. 29 at Chimacum, and the first cross country meet is Sept. 29 at Stevens Middle School. Please join us in cheering on our Sequim Middle School Timberwolf athletes. — Caity Karapostoles, ASB advisor/secretary

again, I really appreciate your work. â€” Taylor Gahr
I want to thank you for providing Mr. Bootsâ€™ class and me with the newspaper. I have learned about my community and information I was not going to until I read it. I have enjoyed knowing things about my community and whatâ€™s happening around me. â€” Jaimee Montelius
I would like to thank you for providing newspapers for Mr. Bootsâ€™ eighth grade classes. I learned many things about our community that I would have never known about if I didnâ€™t read/get the newspaper. One of my favorite articles was about a lady who had some very sad issues, family related and mentally related. I liked this article because it really made me think about life and the people around me. I enjoyed the little section with our classâ€™ 100-word essays. They made me smile. Thank you very very much. It was really appreciated. â€” Alexandria Souza
Thank you for providing my class with the newspaper almost every week. I have benefited greatly. I have learned more about Sequim, the school, and the people in Sequim from this newspaper than I ever knew before reading the Sequim Gazette. I enjoyed learning about what is going on in Sequim and also reading articles my classmates wrote. Thank you again for providing me with a newspaper. I believe you should continue this in the future as many kids my age could greatly use it. â€” Margaret Christio I wanted to thank you for supplying us with the newspaper. When I got the newspaper I was excited to read and learn about what is going on in my town. Thank you for also putting our writings in the newspaper because you never know when we will need something like that to show someone. I thank you very much for the things you guys have done. â€” Sean Lyckman I wanted to thank you for providing Mr. Bootsâ€™ class with the newspaper. When I was reading the newspaper I learned how the paper was organized. I enjoyed reading about the sports and things in that section. Thank you again for everything. â€” Vanessa Martinez Thank you for providing all the newspapers for Mr. Bootsâ€™ class. I know that 130 newspapers each week for an entire school year is a lot of money. There are some kids that donâ€™t care, but I know that I have learned so much from reading it. I have also seen many of my classmates soak up knowledge. I feel that I have become more well-rounded and informed about our community. Thank you so much for your time and effort. â€” Megan McAndie

I want to thank you for supplying all of Mr. Bootsâ€™ class with the newspaper. Reading the newspaper allows everyone to be informed about our society. So I thank you for giving me that learning opportunity. When reading the newspaper every week, I enjoyed seeing my fellow classmatesâ€™ writings within Chalk Talk. I know, at least for me, it makes us feel special. The newspaper is very diverse and not just about one thing or one person, so everyone has something they can read and enjoy as well. Thank you

PA’s Roughriders shut out Wolves Sequim Gazette staff
Olympic League standings
Sequim kept the game closer this time, but Port Angeles’ Roughriders managed to prevail in the end. Port Angeles got three scores and shut out the Sequim offense in a 3-0 win on Thursday, Sept. 16. Last season, Port Angeles beat Sequim 6-1 and 5-1. Sequim dropped a 4-0 decision to Port Townsend two days earlier, giving up a pair of scores to Audrey McHugh. Redskin Lydia Young had all three P.T. assists. Sequim was slated to host Olympic’s Trojans on Sept. 21 — results were unavailable at press time. Sequim is at Klahowya (Silverdale) on Sept. 23 and hosts the Bremerton Knights on Sept. 28.

Football From page B-1 Soon after the opening kickoff, the Wolves stampeded down the field. When the Wolves got into the red zone, Rickerson ran it from 4 yards out for the first touchdown of the night. Then it was the Eagles’ ball and their turn to fly high but they were brought down quickly when Catelli had a massive 14-yard quarterback sack, forcing an Eagles punt. Tyler Forshaw was there to receive the punt and run for a 45-yard touchdown return, and Rickerson ran it in for the 2-point conversion. The Eagles mustered a little offense in the first quarter, with a few good runs from running back Latrell Simpson, but nothing the Wolf pack defense couldn’t handle. Sequim held nothing back against the Eagles as junior receiver Nick Ramirez snagged a Rickerson pass and ran it 16 yards for a touchdown. Later in the quarter, Catelli snuck by the Eagles and ran for another touchdown from 46 yards, putting Sequim up 27-0 after one quarter. In the second quarter, after slowly moving the ball downfield, Rickerson snuck it in for another touchdown from 15 yards. Forshaw returned a second punt for a touchdown only to see it called back because of a penalty. This

did not stop the Wolves, as running back Isaac Yamamoto rushed it down the field in two plays, picking up about 46 yards. Catelli ran up the middle for 9 yards and another touchdown, giving Sequim a 46-0 halftime lead. “Every play was executed very well,” Rickerson said. Though the Eagles were down at half, they came back with their talons out and ready to play, battling Sequim to a scoreless third quarter. Sequim reserve running back Jack Wiker surprised the Eagles with his speed in the fourth quarter and blew past them for a touchdown. “After focusing all week, it had a good end product,” Sequim head coach Eric Wiker said with a smile.
Friday night, it’s the Bremerton Knights On Friday, Sept. 24, the Wolves play the Bremerton Knights on the road. Bremerton is the Olympic League’s lone 3A school. “Bremerton is going to fight hard,” Wiker said. “We have been in the same position. When you have a chance at the league title, you are going to go for it.” Sports editor Michael Dashiell contributed to this report.
This is how to live up to the hype. Ranked No. 2 in the first NWAACC men’s soccer poll, the Peninsula Pirates last week showed exactly why other coaches think so highly of the gold and black. P.C. ripped Southwestern
Oregon 3-0 on Sept. 15 and edged No. 4-ranked Clark 1-0 the next day, to escape with a long 2-0 road trip and take hold of first place in the NWAACC west division. Peninsula (3-0-0 in conference, 5-0-2 overall) didn’t waste time pulling away from Southwestern Oregon in their match at Coos Bay. Patrick Wolverton netted a score just

Gonzalez scored his seventh score of the season — tops in the NWAACC — a few seconds into the second half for the game’s final score; Brent Ricigliano had the assist. Peninsula dominated play, outshooting the Lakers 17-5. Keeper Jared Wilson earned the shutout, nabbing three saves.

Pirates tops in West Sequim Gazette staff
That didn’t take long. Any thoughts the Pirate women’s soccer program would take some time to get used to play in the NWAACC were dispelled last week as Peninsula racked up a pair of impressive road wins. The Pirates are 3-0 in conference play, tops in the NWAACC West division. Peninsula built a two-score lead and held on in the waning moments to the victory — thanks to keeper Ashley Manker — as they toppled Southwestern Oregon 2-1 on Sept. 15. P.C.’s Jessica Farrell ripped a 40-yard free kick for a score at the 23-minute mark, the first half ’s only goal. Farrell made it 2-0 about 70 minutes in off a feed from Tabitha Bare for the 2-0 lead. Southwestern Oregon’s

Manker, who tallied four saves on the afternoon, needed a last-minute save on the goal line to deny the Lakers at least a tie. A day later at Clark College in Vancouver, Wash., the Pirates and Clark’s Penguins battled to a scoreless tie until Pirate Jackie Rodgers chipped in a corner to Shawna Thein, who beat the Clark keeper for the game’s only score.

Emily Drake had 26 assists and nine digs for the Roughriders. Sequim started the week well with a three-set sweep of an overmatched Port Townsend squad, winning 25-14, 25-16 and 25-11.

P.C. hoops signs top L.A. guard Sequim Gazette staff
Sameon Waller from Don Lugo High School in Chino, Calif., signed a letter of intent to attend Peninsula College and play basketball for the Pirates last week. Waller is a 5-foot 9-inch, 185-pound guard that Peninsula head coach Lance Von Vogt says is known for his cat-quick movements on the floor and for his strength. Waller ear ned first team all-conference honors at Don Lugo High, was Most Valuable player at the Rumble in the Bay tournament and earned two other all-tournament team honors. He led his team with averages of 22 points and six assists per game. “Sameon is a fierce competitor who brings credibility to our program,” Von Vogt said. “He was a top guard in Los Angeles who needs junior college to progress to the university level. I am thrilled to have him on board as a Pirate.” Waller set school records for points in a game and three-pointers made in a game by scoring 45 points while draining eight three-pointers in the same game. He scored more than 30 points in a game six times during his senior season. “Good guards make it much easier for everyone else on the team,” Von Vogt said. “Sameon is a good guard and he should make it much easier for our other players to play the game.”

Here comes the weekend, and, if you are like most of us, you choose carefully how you’ll spend those 72 hours. Here are some suggestions:
Plays depict Adam and Eve, Noah’s ark and more
Friday-Saturday, Sept. 24-25 • Start with a fun pops concert, bring a picnic, top it off with two terrific musicians who clearly enjoy what they’re doing — and each other. Tickets for the P.A. Symphony pops concerts often sell out, so call soon so you don’t miss the Bottom Line Duo and all the fun. See Pages C-5,6. • Sure to make you laugh, and probably to think a bit, too, “The Diaries of Adam and Eve” & other tales by Mark Twain will be told at the Old Dungeness Schoolhouse. They will be acted without scenery or costumes so you can focus on the words. If you grew up listening to radio drama, you’ll feel right at home. See story at right and Page C-7.
Friday-Sunday Sept. 24-26 Several festivals are this weekend and it might be hard to decide whether to pick one and fully partake or to visit more than one. Check out the Dungeness River Festival and the Incredible Edible Festival, right here in Sequim, the Port Townsend Film Festival and a — slightly early — Oktoberfest in Port Angeles. See Page C-7.
Saturday, Sept. 25 • What’s an ethnobotanical tour? Find out today as you explore Webster’s Woods at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. Hint, it has to do with edible and medicinal plants. You can bring along friends or family who don’t share your botanical interest — the woods are full of delightful surprises for everyone. See Page C-10.

Mark Twain, aka Samuel Clemens, is getting the Readers Theatre Plus treatment. The local acting/writing troupe has adapted Twain’s “The Diaries of Adam and Eve” and other tales for presentation the weekend of Sept. 24 in Sequim and Oct. 1 in Port Angeles. Carol Swarbrick Dries, co-founder of Readers Theatre Plus, said she and her husband, Jim Dries, saw Twain’s play “Is He Dead?” on Broadway, which piqued their interest in his work. They thought Twain’s perspective on Adam and Eve would be a good fit for the North Olympic Peninsula. “It’s such a wonderful, thought-provoking perspective on these two characters in the
Judeo-Christian world,” Swarbrick Dries said. “It’s refreshing and terrific.” It plays first at the Old Dungeness Schoolhouse and then at First Presbyterian Church in Port Angeles. Convincing the Rev. Ted Mattie of First Presbyterian to host the event for a weekend wasn’t any trouble at all, Swarbrick Dries said. “His take on it was, ‘It’s a very interesting slant on the Scriptures,’” she said. “I find that there’s nothing offensive. It’s amusing, very human and borders on sentimental.” Sean Peck-Collier and Charisa Silliman will perform as Adam and Eve. The play lasts about an hour before an intermission segues into other tales such as a story about Noah’s ark, a scene from “Tom
Sawyer” called “Heartbreak,” a variety of notes from Twain and a page from the “California Almanac.” “He had such an imagination,” Swarbrick Dries said of Twain. “There’s a lot to draw on.” Actors in the other tales are Johnny and Cheryl Bell, Jim Dries and Swarbrick Dries. Pat Owens directs all the plays.
Radio without the radio Readers Theatre Plus is all live performances, Swarbrick Dries said. “It’s radio drama without the radio,” she said. “It’s fully acted. We just don’t have a lot of

The finale is bittersweet for Balducci, who directed the first two plays in 1994 and 1999 with the help of her husband, who died two years ago. “It’s personal for all of us
in a play like this,” Balducci said, choking back tears as she tells how the casts of the first two plays gathered at her husband’s funeral to sing songs from the production, and then again at her mother’s funeral two weeks later. “The ‘family’ truly becomes family.” “Smoke on the Mountain: Homecoming” is a very relevant play, according to Balducci, about war and tough economical times. In the first, “Smoke on the Mountains,” Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe, a young and enthusiastic minister, enlists the Sanders Family Singers
The cast of “Smoke on the Mountain: Homecoming” rehearses for the big night Friday, Sept. 24. in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into the “modern world.” The second play, “Sanders Family Christmas,” takes place on Christmas Eve in 1941, just before young Dennis Sanders ships off to join World War II. In both plays, the family members “witness” or tell personal stories that

So, where’s the beef ? At Jeremiah’s BBQ. The iconic buckboard perched on the roof is symbolic of the pioneer spirit and these pioneers, proprietors Mike and Kris Hallis, certainly have proved their entrepreneurial grit. In fact, business has been so good their recently erected barn soon will be available for banquets. And what began as a serve-yourself has evolved to table service. When I walked in the place, for some reason the neatly ribboned curtains evoked “Calamity Jane.” I swear I could hear Doris Day singing “Once I Had a Secret Love” as she prettied the windows of her no-frills shack. But this isn’t a shack, it’s a welcoming respite. For sunny Sequim, there are outdoor picnic tables. Inside are tables set with red-and-white checked tablecloths — always a promise of comfort food to come. Jeremiah’s walls are covered with logging saws, antlers, awards and certificates. Two health-department-approved little birdies sit quietly in their cage. Too bad they can’t savor the carnivorous aroma wafting through the room. You will be greeted by Jeremiah’s namesake when you place your order — although his welcome might be a bit wooden. I’ve “dined in” before, but Greg and I recently were invited to a surprise party catered by Jeremiah’s. Not only did I go back for seconds, Greg and other party

The Crossing Church
Sequim Gazette staff
The Crossing Church’s purpose statement says members exist to love God, love others and serve the world. “I would add that all Christian churches are to glorify God and to make disciples that will go into the entire world to share Jesus Christ,” Pastor Glen Douglas said. “Our purpose statement is our way of stating the general mission of all Christian churches.” Church members emphasize that it is for anyone but not for everyone. “We have a bias for young families and children as they will be our future moms, dads and workers that will shape and define our society and culture,” Douglas said. “Our older members have that same vision for this church as well.”
Church history The Crossing started in fall 2005 with a Sunday evening Bible study in Douglas’ home. The first meeting had about 12 people. Sunday services have grown to a weekly attendance of about 140 with more than 30 from Sequim. “Our hope for The Crossing is that it will grow as large as Christ would like us to achieve here in our communities,” Douglas said. “We desire men, women and children that have changed lives and are ready to walk with God to be a posi-

tive influence and strength in our community.” Church members are hoping and praying on starting a church in Sequim and finding a permanent facility in Port Angeles. “We want to be ready when Christ says it is time to grow and expand this ministry,” Douglas said. The Crossing is affiliated with Converge Worldwide.
Church services Sunday services are held 9:30 a.m. at Deer Park Cinemas. Douglas describes services as a blend of music and programming appealing to a variety of people. “Bottom line is that our music and message are geared and biased to where our young families and their children are in their understanding of God,” Douglas said.

C-8 • Wednesday, September 22, 2010
HOROSCOPE Material opportunities of all kinds are likely to be offered to you in the year ahead, by more than one promoter. Many of them will be feasible and attractive, so it behooves you to examine all propositions and go with the ones that are the most sumptuous. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - A friend who has been beneficial for you previously is likely to be so again. This person may be the one who initiates things for you, but you’ll play the key role in the end. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Devote all your effort to your most important project, because whatever you do is likely to go more smoothly, and will come out better than expected. The bigger your endeavor, the luckier you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Friends you chill with are likely to be luckier for you than usual. At least one among them will do something for you that you’ll find to be extremely kind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Try to go the full distance, because your luck could turn out to be in proportion to your staying power. Even if you’re doing something you never did before, stick with it like nougat on the roof of your mouth. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Focus solely on the positive aspects of what faces you, and it will turn out to be extremely rewarding. Your success is predicated mostly on your attitude, so never stop believing to achieve. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - You could be quite fortunate where material things are concerned, so focus your

Sept. 22, 2010
efforts on what you want and/or on sizeable opportunities. There might be more than one prize. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Friends, associates and family will offer to assist you in situations in which they see you are trying hard to T.C.O.B. Ironically, your self-reliance is what will be attracting supporters. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - This could be payback time for you, with more than one person finding a way to repay you in some kind of equitable way. What you receive in return could be far grander than that which you gave. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Undercurrents are stirring that will help you transform some kind of major hope into a tasty reality. You’ll get the first inkling today that this is happening. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - It’s time to stop settling for second-best and elevate your sights a bit higher. Put forth that extra effort or contact that person who can help you achieve what your heart desires. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Instead of merely being concerned about what is going on in your life at the moment, begin putting forth whatever it takes to reach that brass ring. This is a good day to get new things rolling. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - If something you’re contemplating could be far easier to execute with the support of others, this is the day to gather the support you need. Talk to those who you feel would be an asset. Copyright 2010, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

A haunting tale out of Africa “Onaedo: The Blacksmith’s Daughter” — Ngozi Achebe Mandac-Goldberg — 364 pages — $19.95 Olympia physician Ngozi Achebe has storytelling in her blood. Not only is the renowned novelist Chinua Achebe her uncle, but the acknowledgements section of her debut novel, “Onaedo: The Blacksmith’s Daughter,” credits many other family members as well for their rich tradition of storytelling and deep regard for books. Born in England and raised in Nigeria during the Biafran war, Achebe has a keen understanding of how dramatic events can affect ordinary lives. Her particular interest in the advent of the Portuguese slave trade in West Africa in the 16th century is the basis for this novel, which describes a woman’s coming of age in a harsh era. Onaedo, the principal character, is a headstrong young
woman from a prominent family in the Igbo ethnic group. Once she is of marrying age, her refusal to consider the suitors who come calling is enough to give her mother fits that any Jane Austen fan might recognize. Instead, Onaedo has her heart set on marrying an HE OOKMONGER indentured woodworker, but it is a match her family is unBarbara Lloyd McMichael likely to accept. The pairing is further doomed when Oguebie, one of Onaedo’s rebuffed suitors, arranges to have a group of men, including Onaedo’s beau, leave for a job near the coast. As the brother of the local ruler, Oguebie thinks he is above the rest of the community. He is restless and greedy and when given a chance to line his pockets by dealing with some Portuguese traders, he agrees to the opportunity. At first he is unaware that the white men are engaged in the slave trade but even when he discovers what they are up to, he swallows any compunction
and goes ahead with the transaction. Eventually Onaedo is swept up in one of the raids and she is shipped off to a sugar plantation off the coast of West Africa. This is a tale of dashed hopes and bitter heartbreak. Onaedo is a resilient character, but the circumstances she has to cope with are difficult to read about. Achebe’s choice of story is fine but her storytelling skills are a work in progress. Her book-ending of the central tale with a story about a 21stcentury woman seeking her roots is extraneous. And her decision to tell the main story from multiple points of view — slave traders and slave owners as well as various members of Onaedo’s family — dissipates the narrative punch. On the other hand, it does flesh out the justifications people use when acting in an unprincipled way. Again, this isn’t savory stuff, but it is certainly worth considering. “Onaedo” has some other strong selling points. It is fascinating in its detailed descriptions of the daily life, customs and relations in a 16th-century West African village. And while the various troubles that prevail in our own time cannot be equated with Onaedo’s era of upheaval and despair, the heroine’s tenacious and pragmatic spirit may serve as a beacon of courage even to readers today. The Bookmonger is Barbara Lloyd McMichael, who writes this column focusing on the books, authors and publishers of the Pacific Northwest. Contact her at bkmonger@ nwlink.com.

The context of place Discovering the bounty Victoria-based naturalist Joe Percival leads an ethnobotanical tour Saturday, Sept. 25, of Webster’s Woods to uncover some natural splendors on Beaver Hill, as this first Olympic foothill is known to locals. Webster’s Woods, the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center’s 5-acre art park, is special not only for the artworks that the PERCIVAL walker encounters at every turn but also for the site, a lush sylvan patch right in the city. Percival will search out edible and medicinal plants that were important to the original inhabitants of this Salish Sea ecosystem and
DISCOVERIES Richard Olmer Yes, I listen to trees, to breezes, to rocks and waves and all sorts of things. I was trained to listen to people and to try to unwind the workings of their minds. How else can one teach if one cannot listen? A teacher must know where someone is before he or she can move them onward into new places. And somewhere during my own education or through the magic of genes and dreams, an ancient grandmother and an uncle whose life was a series of alcoholic binges mixed with months of living alone in the woods, I learned about place. How place can define history, belief, well-being, sanity, reality and even wisdom. You and I are defined by a series of places where we have lived, visited, dreamed of or simply imagined. Places where we have learned lessons, felt anxiety or fear or happiness, places we remember and places we have forgotten. Why do we travel long distances to visit places at great costs if we do not hope to gain something? Why do we need to visit countries where our families have roots or the homes of famous people? We know that place is important to who we are and who we can become. Places can be wild or carefully tended and well-planned to the smallest detail. The formal garden at the residence of a European king
It’s ironic that the magic of place usually involves people. From left are Ted Bedford, Diane Bergsland, Dallas Drew, Roger Uhden and Bob Cloyes in 2002 on Blue Mountain. Sequim Gazette photo by Richard Olmer
or queen, Jefferson’s home Monticello, the city of Washington, D.C., all are carefully planned. A beach like Rialto, the top of most mountains and a mountain stream are wild and spontaneous without any conscious design. A planned place can be quite comfortable and comforting or un-natural and cause discomfort. A wild place can be frightening when unknown and unsuspected or wonderful when expected and anticipated. I find some gardens comforting; some too contrived and over-designed. Each one of us prefers some places over others. Most of us cringe at the thought of visiting a dental office unless we have a toothache. Most places are neither good or bad, pleasant or awful; we judge them based on expectations, experiences and our current state of mind. Yet some places can change our state of mind. P.D. James had her detective, Inspector Dalgliesh, say, “He could learn more about his witness from an unobtrusive scrutiny of his rooms
than from a dozen direct questions. Books, pictures, the arrangement of artifacts sometimes provided more revealing testimony than words.” The places we live in can tell a visitor a very lot about ourselves. What about my favorite places in and out of Sequim? There’s the burnt forest up on Blue Mountain where the trees are white and bare. There’s Rialto Beach. There’s the top of Mount Townsend or the trail diving down to Grand and Moose lakes from Lillian Ridge. There’s Klahhane Ridge looking down at Lake Dawn, the Graywolf River or Lake Angeles. In Sequim, there’s Paul’s warm smile at the Safeway phar macy counter, Art’s Barber Shop, the wonderful garden at Zbaraschuk’s Dental Center, the nice folks at the Co-op and those ladies who draw your blood in Sequim early in the morning.

So many puppies & kittens, so few homes!
THREE SPECIAL NEEDS CATS: Cartman is declawed, and like many declawed cats, uses his teeth to bite when something happens that upsets him. It will take a special person to adopt this dear boy, one who can â€˜readâ€™ him correctly, and know when to stop petting him. Primrose is a special needs kitty on a mission to heal herself of the several things that have caused her grief â€“ currently occasional steroid shots seem to keep her ailments under control. She has been a calming influence on some of the rowdy boys in her room. Aspen also has special needs and is on the road to mending. This beautiful tabby/ Siamese blend was found abandoned in an empty house and then tossed outdoors before being rescued. Like the others stress aggravates her ailments. A loving home will do wonders to help these three kitties. Beverly is now going on two-years-old, and is a bundle of energy. This uniquely marked calico/tabby blend is maturing gracefully and is a volunteerâ€™s delight. Andy is a very happy fellow, a lovely two-year-old, mellow, orange cat with a magnificent plume of a tail. Mallory is about three-months-old now, another one of this seasonâ€™s tabby/Siamese kittens. She has made the adjustment to the kitten room. There is nothing quite like being placed in a room with nine other small ones, all asking you â€œWho are you? and letâ€™s play.â€? Whoa!
We ask an $80 adoption fee, to help defray expenses. See all the PFOA pets at http://safehavenpfoa.org
Peninsula Friends of Animals is not associated with any other animal rescue group. Our mission: To prevent the birth of unwanted pets through aggressive educational and spay/neuter programs; and to place as many unwanted pets as possible into good, safe permanent homes.
and leave a message to find out more about our ongoing Spay/ Neuter program and clinics. A volunteer will return your call.
SPAY & NEUTER YOUR PETS.
I NEED A HOME PLEASE ADOPT ME Call Olympic Peninsula Humane Society (360) 457-8206 to adopt these pets SARGE
Sarge has smile and a sense of humor. Heâ€™s a 3-yearold Pointer mix who came to us as a stray. Sarge walks well on his leash and is people-oriented. He knows the commands â€œsitâ€? and â€œdownâ€?. Heâ€™s such a good dog that we selected him for an off-site party. Sarge met many people, including children and other dogs and did great with everyone. Sarge is smart, curious, and has a good mix of energy (he enjoys going on walks) and calm (heâ€™s also content to sit and hang out). Sarge is a highly intelligent and curious dog who also loves (and needs) exercise. Sarge would do wonderfully with a person who goes on long hikes, walks or runs, or with a person or family who has acreage on which Sarge could safely and happily roam.
King is a handsome 2-year-old Pit Bull mix. Kingâ€™s owner could no longer care for him due to unfortunate circumstances. King knows the commands â€œSitâ€?, â€œShake Handsâ€? and â€œNite Niteâ€? (he will snuggle under your arms at that command). Kingâ€™s previous owner notes that King needs attention and a strong, firm yet positive owner. King gets along with some dogs but not all: if you already have a dog, itâ€™s best to let them meet at the Humane Society before adoption. King loves to go on walks, and his favorite toys are balls bouncy balls, tennis balls, any kind of balls! King only chews on stuff heâ€™s supposed to, like his own toys. King would like a home with people who can spend a lot of time with him and cuddle with him.

1 unspayed cat could be responsible for 370,092 kittens in 7 years.
Cinnamon is a beautiful 1-yearold Shepherd mix. She arrived at the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society with her puppies, who are almost ready for adoption. Cinnamon is ready to be adopted too! Sheâ€™s ready to relax and enjoy the good life. A little on the thin side, Cinnamon needs some TLC â€“ and a good quality food. She has a wonderfully gentle, loving personality and walks beautifully on her leash.
Ellie is a very affectionate 6-year-old Chihuahua/ Yorkie mix. Sheâ€™s been successfully treated for a skin condition; her coat is growing back beautifully. Ellie loves people and other animals, including other dogs and cats. Ellie needs someone who can spend time with her and give her the love and care she needs. Ellie will cry when left alone but eventually settles down. Ellie loves to snuggle up â€œunderâ€? the covers of a bed at night. She is house-broken and uses the doggy door; she wonâ€™t have an accident in the house as long as she has outdoor access. She doesnâ€™t need a leash when she goes on a walk as she only wants to stay close to her person. Ellie loves to play tug-of-war or chase. Ellie is currently in a foster home. To arrange to meet Ellie, please call us at (360) 457-8206.

Bear is a 3-year-old Dalmatian/Border Collie mix. He gets along well with everyone: children, cats, and other dogs. Bearâ€™s previous family, who cannot keep him any longer because they are moving to a place that doesnâ€™t allow dogs, describe him as a loving guy who will do anything for a tennis ball.
