Throughout, Dalrymple pointed to the means to pay for the plans.

SWAT involved in night standoff Bismarck authorities and a SWAT team remained at the scene of standoff late Tuesday evening with a man at Skyway Trailer Park who claimed he was armed and holding people inside the home. Shortly before 8 p.m., the man called 911 and said he was holding people at gunpoint and wanted police to come, according to Bismarck Police Lt. Steve Cysewski. Cysewski said one person inside was allowed to leave the residence, but authorities did not know how many people remained inside as of 10:30 p.m. Cysewski said the man, who seemed heavily intoxicated, would not come to the door, but told those he was in contact with that he wanted to shoot officers. The suspect later indicated he did not want to harm anyone inside the mobile home. — LeAnn Eckroth

House GOP Offending captain fired three years after videos challenges Obama to By ANNE FLAHERTY and PAULINE JELINEK A bright future join them Associated Press NORFOLK, Va. (AP) —

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Navy brusquely fired the captain of the USS Enterprise on Tuesday, more than three years after he made lewd videos to boost morale for his crew, timing that put the military under pressure to explain why it acted only after the videos became public.

Navy Capt. Owen Honors was an officer with a bright future, a hotshot fighter jock who rose to become commander of one of the most storied Honors ships in the fleet, the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. His undoing was a sense of humor that seemed a throwback to the Navy’s raucous, macho Tailhook days nearly two decades ago. Once on track to be an admiral, Honors has been reassigned to administrative duties. Military experts said his career is probably over. “Unfortunately, when you’re an officer with that kind of responsibility and you make a big error in judgment, the price that you pay is often high, particularly if the mistake you made gets a lot of publicity,” said Stephen Continued on 9A

Mikulski becomes longest-serving female senator ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — When Maryland’s Barbara Mikulski was first sworn in as a U.S. senator in 1987, she entered what she described a s “a g u y s’ club,” a chamber where senators socialized in a gym off-limits to Mikulski her and the only other female senator then, Republican Nancy Kassebaum of Kansas. Mikulski, a Democrat who will become the longest-serving woman in the history of the U.S. Senate today, says in her characteristically blunt style that she was never much of a jock anyway. “For us, it’s not about whether we had a locker room,” Mikulski, 74, said in an interview with The Associated Press this week. “It’s whether we had a committee room, and we now have them.” She added, “We had to work very hard to get on the committees of power.”

Biden chief of staff is leaving WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says his chief of staff, Ron Klain, is leaving his post later this month. Klain has been a longtime Democratic political operative and the White House said he helped foster a strong relationship between the vice president’s and the president’s staffs. Klain also served as vice president Al Gore’s chief of staff and was a key figure during the 2000 presidential election recount in Florida. Klain will become president of Case Holdings, the parent company of an investment firm owned by Klain’s former boss and AOL co-founder Steve Case.

Arlen Specter to teach at Penn. law PHILADELPHIA (AP) — After three decades as a U.S. senator and taking part in numerous Supreme Court confirmations, Arlen Specter will teach a course at the University of Pennsylvania Law School about Congress’ relationship with the nation’s highest court. The school announced Tuesday that Specter, 80, will join as an adjunct faculty member in the fall. His course will focus on the separation of powers and the Supreme Court confirmation process, something he was involved with as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1981 to 2010, including as its chairman from 2005-07. Specter was perhaps bestknown for his role in Supreme Court confirmations. He took part in 14 hearings.




The next chapter Obama is shaking up his team By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent WASHINGTON— Retooling for a re-election run, President Barack Obama is shaking up his senior leadership team to deal with the new realities of his term: The era of big legislation is over, a massive campaign effort needs energy and people, and the White House is taking a toll on those who run it. Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, is likely to leave that job, and his interim chief of staff, Pete Rouse, may go, too. Those departures would significantly alter the management of the White House and the way it explains itself to the world. In the coming days and weeks, Obama is also expected to have a new chief economic adviser, a new senior political counselor, and two new deputy chiefs of staff. Collectively, the moves reflect that change is coming to the White House in ways that will alter the dynamic of the place — and, in turn, will influence the agenda affecting the nation. The vice president’s office is in for its own new leadership, with its chief of staff, Ron Klain, leaving to run an investment company. People outside of Washington politics may not recognize the names of the players. How Obama is rebooting his operation is the broader story, and the aides guiding him are a central part of it.

DETROIT — Auto sales rose in the United States last year for the first time since the recession. They’re still far from what they were just a few years ago — but that’s just fine with the downsized auto industry, which can post profits even if it sells millions fewer cars and trucks. For the year, new car and truck sales came in at 11.6 million, up 11 percent from last year, automakers re p o r t e d Tu e s d a y. Fo r December alone, sales were 1.14 million, also up 11 percent from a year earlier. While the figures have some in the industry talking about a return to the glory days, it’s a fragile idea. Rising gas prices or more economic trouble could still shake the confidence of American car buyers. But for now, executives are optimistic about this year. General Motors, Ford and Toyota all predict sales

President Barack Obama, with first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia, 12, left, and Sasha, 9, right, returns to the White House in Washington on Tuesday after a family vacation in Hawaii. The White House goal is to become more efficient and less insular, to realign itself for divided government, to find fresh voices and to get Obama re-elected. Among the expected changes: ■ William Daley is under serious consideration to replace Rouse as chief of staff, which is considered the most important gatekeeping job in American politics. Daley, a banking executive and former Cabinet secretary under President Bill Clinton, is said to want the job. Rouse, a camera-shy adviser to Obama who has served smoothly as interim chief of staff, had never wanted to do it for long. If Rouse decides to leave, Daley will likely come aboard. ■ Gibbs, the most visible

spokesman for the president, is likely to leave the briefing room podium. It is unclear whether he would stay at the White House or leave for private sector work, but either way, he will remain a presidential adviser. ■ Gene Sperling, a Treasury official and deficit hawk with ties to Wall Street and the Clinton administration, is considered most likely to become Obama’s chief econ o m i c a d v i s e r. T h a t announcement could come as soon as Friday. Sperling would replace Lawrence Summers as director of the National Economic Council. ■ Jim Messina, the deputy chief of staff who juggles operations, politics and legislative roles, is expected to leave to run Obama’s re-election bid out of Chicago. He

will likely be replaced by Alyssa Mastromonaco, whose portfolio would center on overseeing the operational aspects of the White House, including staffing and budgeting. Mona Sutphen, Obama’s deputy chief of staff for policy, is also expected to leave her post. ■ David Axelrod, one of Obama’s most trusted advisers and strategists, is leaving the White House after the State of the Union speech in January. He plans to recharge at home in Chicago and play a significant role in Obama’s re-election bid. David Plouffe, Obama’s presidential campaign manager and a counselor to Obama over the last two years from outside the building, is expected to join the White House as early as next week as a top adviser.

“We’re coming off what was arguably the most challenging time in our 53year history.” Don Esmond, senior vice president of Toyota’s U.S. operations will come in at 12.5 million to 13 million for 2011. It will take years, analysts expect, to get back to the peak sales of 17 million reached in the middle of the decade. “The economic downturn has lasted quite a while,” says Jessica Caldwell, director of pricing and analysis for consumer website “It’s going to be slow and gradual rather than a fast bounceback.” Toyota was the only company that sold fewer cars and trucks than in 2009. The company was stung by sudden-acceleration recalls in early 2010 and never fully recovered despite luring buyers with generous incentives. Production problems at its San Antonio plant cut

its supply of Tundra and Tacoma pickup trucks, and troubles importing the Prius hybrid also hurt sales. The company lost nearly two percentage points of market share, slipping behind Ford to rank third in the U.S. “We’re coming off what was arguably the most challenging time in our 53-year history,” says Don Esmond, senior vice president of Toyota’s U.S. operations. He says he is optimistic that sales will rebound in 2011. U.S. automakers are relieved to have the past two years behind them. When the financial crisis hit in the fall of 2008, car sales plummeted. GM and Chrysler were on the brink of death, saved by a $60 billion government bailout and speedy

bankruptcies that helped both companies close plants and eliminate debt. Ford didn’t declare bankruptcy or take a bailout, but it closed plants, laid off employees, and worked to lower its overall cost structure. As a result, those companies can now make money even if sales hover below pre-recession levels. Over the past two years, many Americans, even those who had enough money to buy a car during the recession, had been wary to commit to monthly car payments, so they put off making such a large purchase. Many opted to repair or make do with what they had. Those buyers are easing back into the market, replacing aging vehicles. The average vehicle on U.S. roads is now 10.2 years old — the oldest since 1997 and a full year older than in 2007, before the recession, according to the National Automobile Dealers Association.

Pakistani governor who opposed blasphemy law slain By ASIF SHAHZAD and NAHAL TOOSI Associated Press ISLAMABAD — The governor of Pakistan’s most dominant province was shot and killed Tuesday by a bodyguard who authorities said was angry about his opposition to blasphemy laws carrying the death sentence for insulting the Muslim faith. Punjab Gov. Salman Taseer, regarded as a moderate voice in a country increasingly beset by zealotry, was a close ally of U.S.backed President Asif Ali Zardari. He is the highest-profile Pakistani political figure to be assassinated since

former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto three years ago, and his death underscores the growing danger in this country to those who dare challenge the demands of Islamist extremists. Taseer was riddled Taseer by gunshots while walking to his car after an afternoon meal at Kohsar Market, a shopping center in Islamabad popular with Westerners and wealthy Pakistanis. He was shot in the back, said Shaukat Kayani, a doctor at Poly Clinic Hospital.

Initial reports indicated the suspected gunman, a police commando guarding Taseer, unloaded up to 26 rounds from a Kalashnikov automatic rifle. The gunman could have fired that number of rounds in a matter of seconds. Other guards then forced the police commando to the ground, according to police and hospital officials. “It was one shot first and then a burst,” said R.A. Khan, a witness who was drinking coffee at the time. “I rushed and saw policemen over another police commando, who was lying on the road with his face down.”

An intelligence official interrogating the suspect said the commando had been planning the assassination since learning three days ago that he would be deployed with the governor. Police were trying to determine how he was assigned to Taseer’s security detail Tuesday and whether he’d had any help. Taseer’s admirers called the governor a profile in courage in a fight for the soul of Pakistan, which in recent years has increasingly swung away from South Asia’s Sufi-influenced moderation to the more fundamentalist approaches to Islam found in some areas of the Middle East.

Calif. court: Cops can search texts without warrant SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The California Supreme Court ruled Monday that police do not need a warrant to search a cell phone carried by someone under arrest. The justices determined a Ventura County deputy had the right to conduct a warrantless search of the text messages of a man he had arrested on suspicion of participating in a drug deal. The state court ruled 5-2 that U.S. Supreme Court precedent affirms that police can search items found on defendants when they are arrested. However, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that in 2007, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston ruled that police could not search the cell phones of drug defendants without a warrant. The Ohio Supreme Court also found in 2009 that police did not have that right. California Deputy Attorney General Victoria Wilson, who represented the prosecution in the case decided Monday, told the newspaper the split opinions in California and Ohio could lead the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in on the cell phone issue. The California Supreme Court decided the loss of privacy upon arrest extends beyond the arrestee’s body to include personal property. Authorities can not only seize items but also can open and examine what they find, the ruling said.

Obama signs bill to improve food safety WASHINGTON (AP) — Foreshadowing the coming power struggles between the White House and a more Republican Congress, President Barack Obama on Tuesday signed a $1.4 billion overhaul of the nation’s food safety system as some lawmakers complained that it’s too expensive and threatened its funding. The first major overhaul of the food safety system since the 1930s, the law emphasizes prevention to help stop deadly outbreaks of foodborne illness before they occur, instead of reacting after consumers become ill. It calls for increasing government inspections at

food processing facilities and, for the first time, gives the Food and Drug Administration the power to order the recall of unsafe foods. Obama made improving food safety a priority shortly after taking office in 2009. There have been several deadly outbreaks of E. coli and salmonella poisoning in peanuts, eggs and produce in the past few years. But some Republicans lawmakers, sensitive to the public’s concerns about high levels of government spending and debt, say the $1.4 billion, five-year price tag is too much and needs more scrutiny. “I think we’ll look very

carefully at the funding before we support $1.4 billion,” Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., told The Associated Press in an inter view. Kingston hopes to become chairman of the agriculture subcommittee of the House panel that helps set government spending. Republicans who want to withhold funding would appear to have little chance of succeeding. The bill passed Congress with broad bipartisan support last year on a 73-25 vote in the Senate and by 215-144 in the House. Major food companies backed the bill, recognizing that safe food is good for business.

Judges rule cross at park unconstitutional SAN DIEGO (AP) — A war memorial cross in a San Diego public park is unconstitutional because it conveys a message of government endorsement of religion, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday in a twodecade old case. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued the unanimous decision in the dispute over the 29-foot cross, which was dedicated in 1954 in honor of Korean War veterans. The court said modifications could be made to make it constitutional, but it didn’t specify what those changes would be. “In no way is this decision meant to undermine the importance of honoring our veterans,” the three judges said in their rul-

ing. “Indeed, there are countless ways that we can and should honor them, but without the imprimatur of state-endorsed religion.” Federal courts are reviewing several cases of crosses on public lands being challenged as unconstitutional, including a cross erected on a remote Mojave Desert outcropping to honor American war dead. Tuesday’s ruling could influence future cases involving the separation of church and state. U.S. Justice Department spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle said the federal government, which is defending the San Diego cross, is studying the ruling and had no comment.

La. has mass bird kill just days after Ark. By JANET McCONNAUGHEY Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — It isn’t easy being a blackbird in the South. First, New Year’s Eve fireworks were blamed in central Arkansas for making thousands of blackbirds confused, crashing into homes, cars and each other. Then 300 miles to the south in Louisiana, power lines likely killed about 450 birds, littering a highway near Baton Rouge. It’s almost certainly a coincidence the events happened within days of each other, Louisiana’s state wildlife veterinarian Jim LaCour said Tuesday. “I haven’t found anything to link the two at this point.� Mass bird deaths aren’t uncommon. The U.S. Geological Service’s website listed about 90 mass deaths of birds and other wildlife from June through Dec. 12. There were five deaths of at least 1,000 birds, with the largest near Houston, Minn., where parasite infestations killed about 4,000 water birds between Sept. 6 and Nov. 26. In Louisiana, the birds died sometime late Sunday or early Monday in the rural Pointe Coupee Parish community of Labarre, about 30 miles northwest of Baton Rouge. The birds — a mixed flock of redwinged blackbirds, brownheaded cowbirds, grackles and starlings — may have hit a power line or vehicles in the dark, LaCour said. Two dozen of them had head, neck, beak or back injuries.

Twain’s ‘offensive’ words removed MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Mark Twain wrote t h a t “t h e d i f f e re n c e between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter.� A new edition of “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn� and “Tom Sawyer� will try to find out if that holds true by replacing the N-word with “slave� in an effort not to offend readers. Twain scholar Alan Gribben, who is working with NewSouth Books in Alabama to publish a combined volume of the books, said the N-word appears 219 times in “Huck Finn� and four times in “Tom Sawyer.� He said the word puts the books in danger of joining the list of literary classics that Twain once humorously defined as those “which people praise and don’t read.� The book isn’t scheduled to be published until February, at a mere 7,500 copies, but Gribben has already received a flood of hateful email accusing him of desecrating the novels. Another Twain scholar, professor Stephen Railton at the University of Virginia, said Gribben was well respected, but called the new version “a terrible idea.�

UK introduces new beer size LONDON (AP) — Britain is calling time on more than 300 years of history, by relaxing rules on pub glass sizes. Pubs will soon be able to serve a smaller beer, holding about 400 milliliters — a measure popular in some parts of Australia where it is known as a schooner. Science Minister David Willetts said Tuesday that centuries old rules governing the sale of alcohol are being relaxed in response to health concerns and following demands from businesses to sell sizes better suited to modern waistlines and wallets.

Hundreds of dead birds lie along the side of the Morganza Highway in Pointe Coupee Parish, La., on Monday, about 300 miles south of Beebe, Ark., where more than 3,000 blackbirds fell from the sky three days earlier. About 50 dead birds were near a power line 30 or 40 feet from Louisiana Highway 1. About a quarter-mile away, a second group of 400 or more stretched from the power line and across the highway, he said. Dan Cristol, a biology professor and co-founder of the Institute for Integrative Bird Behavior Studies at the College of William & Mary, said the Louisiana birds may have been ill or startled from their roost, then hit the power line. “They don’t hit a power line for no reason,� he said. In Beebe, New Year’s revelers spent the holiday weekend cleaning up dead red-winged blackbirds. Some speculated that bad weather was to blame.

Others said one confused bird could have led the group in a fatal plunge. A few spooked schoolkids guessed the birds committed mass suicide. Officials acknowledged, though, they may never know exactly what caused the large number of deaths. Cristol was skeptical of the fireworks theory, unless “somebody blew something into the roost, literally blowing the birds into the sky.� Wildlife officials in both Arkansas and Louisiana sent carcasses to researchers at the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wis. and the University of Georgia. LaCour said he didn’t expect results for at least two or three weeks.

Pa. police to end tickets for cursing PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Firing off a few four-letter words can’t be charged as a crime anymore in Pennsylvania — at least when state police are involved. State police have agreed to stop citing the public for cursing as part of a settlement Tuesday of a federal free-speech lawsuit. The American Civil Liberties Union represents Pennsylvanians who have been ticketed for cursing at an overflowing toilet, a swerving motorcyclist and a parking ticket issuer. The citations can lead to hundreds of dollars in fines and legal costs, not to mention the occasional jail stint. “Using profanity toward someone, whether an officer or not, is just not one of those things that you can put someone in jail for,� ACLU lawyer Mary Catherine Roper said Tuesday. “It may not be very smart, but you have a constitutional right to do that.� Yet state troopers issued more than 700 disorderly conduct citations for swearing in a recent one-year span, and local police hundreds more, the ACLU learned during the court case. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court years ago deemed such speech legal as long as it’s neither threatening nor obscene, Roper said. The case settled Tuesday involves Lona Scarpa, a 35-year-old Luzerne County woman who called police after a motorcyclist swerved toward her as she walked with a friend. When troopers investigated, they ended up charging Scarpa for the string of epithets she admits utter ing at the offender.

No science behind wristbands Power Balance company makes admission By AMY TAXIN Associated Press SANTA ANA, Calif. — Shaquille O’Neal swears by them. The Power Balance bracelet, he says, gives him a competitive edge on the court. It’s no gimmick, he says. It’s for real. It may be for him, but Australian authorities say the California-based company behind the wildly popular wristbands and pendants has no business claiming that they improve balance, strength and flexibility. And they even got Power Balance to admit it. The company wrote: “We admit that there is no credible scientific evidence that supports our claims.” It also agreed to give refunds to customers who believe they were cheated. The company’s admission, however, hopped across the globe since its agreement with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission was announced on Dec. 22. It was an answer to what many who saw the ads wondered: Do the colorful silicone bands actually work? Critics railed against the company on Twitter and those who had believed in the bracelet’s power. The company unleashed a torrent of its own tweets, playing off the word “admit.” In one, it said: “Power Balance Admits products have been worn during the last world series, nba finals and super bowl champions!” Fans insist the bands have helped their game. “Our trainers swear by it,” Phoenix Suns forward Jared

Associated Press

Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant wears a Power Balance bracelet on his right wrist during an NBA basketball game in Philadelphia on Dec. 17. Dudley wrote in a message posted on his Twitter page. The company began selling bracelets in 2007 embedded with holograms that were purportedly designed to interact with the body’s natural energy flow. Since then, the colorful wristbands, which sell for $29.95, have become ubiquitous, donned by Los Angeles Lakers’ Lamar Odom and English celebrity soccer star David Beckham. They have also been worn by celebrities, including actors Robert De Niro and Gerard Butler. The company sold $8,000 of merchandise in its first year and expects more than

$35 million in sales in 2010. Power Balance, for its part, doesn’t claim to have science on its side, said Adam Selwyn, a spokesman for the Laguna Niguel, Calif.based company. Rather, it relies on testimonials from famous athletes and users to tout the products’ effects. The company says it pays some athletes for the right to use their images wearing the bracelets, including O’Neal and Odom. Josh Rodarmel, one of the company’s co-founders, said in a statement he knows there may be skeptics. “We’re not trying to win over every person in the world,” he said.

Ralph Reiff, program director at St. Vincent Sports Performance in Indianapolis, said maybe a third of the hundreds of professional and amateur athletes who train there wear the wristband or an imitation. The program even thought about putting its logo on the products and handing them out, he said. But officials decided against that because they couldn’t find enough reliable research to back up the company’s claims about giving a biological boost to performance, he said. “I couldn’t look in the mirror and 100 percent say (it’s) a product I can put my brand reputation behind,” said Reiff, a certified athletic trainer. Reiff said he believes there’s no reason to think the wristbands could produce a biological benefit, and that any benefit is purely psychological. “It’s just like a pair of lucky socks,” Reiff said. “It’s a lucky charm, and if you believe in it, then it’s excellent.” On its website, Power Balance features video footage of athletes holding their arms out and resisting downward pressure in trials with and without the bands. A Wisconsin professor ran similar tests comparing the performance of 42 athletes wearing Power Balance wristbands and silicon versions from Walmart and said he found no difference. Athletes were more likely to perform better wearing the second bracelet they put on, largely because they knew what to expect from the trial, said John Porcari, professor of exercise and sport science at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. “I think it is a scam,” he said. “It has absolutely nothing to do with the bracelets. It is all in people’s heads.”

Feds probe storm slowdown reports NEW YORK (AP) — Federal prosecutors in New York are looking into claims sanitation workers sabotaged the city’s snow cleanup after the post-Christmas blizzard, a law enforcement official said Tuesday. The official said the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn opened a preliminary inquiry after a Queens city councilman contacted them. A city watchdog agency also is investigating. Councilman Dan Halloran has said sanitation workers told him their supervisors made it clear workers who slacked off during the cleanup wouldn’t be punished. The official said public integrity prosecutors are looking into whether workers padded overtime and violated fraud statutes. The official wasn’t authorized to speak about the inquiry and spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity.

Past Thomas girlfriend has book deal NEW YORK (AP) — A former girlfriend of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas has a deal for a “sexually driven” memoir. Lillian McEwen, who dated Thomas in the 1980s, has signed with TitleTown Publishing, a Green Bay, Wis.-based publisher specializing in true crime and “inspirational” survivor stories. “D.C. Unmasked and Undressed” is scheduled to come out in early February, TitleTown announced Tuesday, adding that the book was “sexually driven.” McEwen, a retired administrative law judge, broke a long public silence last fall when she told The Washington Post that Thomas often made inappropriate comments and was “obsessed with porn,” allegations made by former Thomas colleague Anita Hill during his 1991 confirmation hearings. Thomas vehemently denied such behavior.

Man is charged for deaths of three COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An unemployed tree-cutter suspected in the deaths of three people whose dismembered bodies were found in a hollow tree has been charged with aggravated murder, burglary, kidnapping and rape, but a death sentence isn’t being pursued at the wishes of the victims’ families. Matthew Hoffman could face life without the possibility of parole if convicted of killing Tina Herrmann; her son, Kody Maynard; and neighbor Stephanie Sprang, according to an indictment announced Tuesday. The indictment alleges Hoffman committed the killings while he burglarized Herrmann’s house Nov. 10 near a lakeside community about 60 miles from Columbus. Hoffman was also charged with kidnapping a 13-year-old girl during the crime and later raping her at his home in Mount Vernon.

Vandals chop down Nev. ‘shoe tree’ FALLON, Nev. (AP) — A landmark tree filled with dangling shoes, boots and sneakers that served as a popular stopping point for travelers in northern Nevada was chopped down by vandals, leaving merchants concerned that business would suffer in the isolated area. The 70-foot cottonwood tree along U.S. 50 in Middlegate was cut down late last week. “There are a lot of angry people,” bartender Travis Anderton said. “That helps out business. People come out to see the shoe tree.”

Twins born in ’10, ’11

A northern Illinois couple welcomed their new daughter to the world in the last minute of 2010 — and a twin son in the first minute of 2011. Ashley Fansler gave birth to Madisen Carin Lewis at 11:59 p.m. on New Year’s Eve in Machesney Park, 85 miles northwest of Chicago. Aiden Everette Lewis was born a minute later, at 12 a.m. on New Year’s Day. The Rockford Register Star reports that Fansler wasn’t due until the end of January but doctors at Rockford Memorial Hospital scheduled a cesarean section for Friday evening to avoid complications. The father, Brandon Lewis, says one of the doctors was counting the minutes down before the births. Lewis says it was “definitely the best” New Year’s countdown he’s had. ■ Cleveland

Ozzy blamed for arrest

An Ohio drunken-driving suspect is blaming his arrest on Ozzy Osbourne. William Liston was arrested Christmas Eve in suburban Cleveland. WJWTV says he told police officers, “Ozzy Osbourne and his music made me do it.” Osbourne’s hits as lead singer of heavy metal band Black Sabbath and as a solo artist include “Paranoid” and “Road to Nowhere.” Liston is awaiting arraignment. He was to appear in court Tuesday on a charge of operating a vehicle while impaired. In an unrelated case, Liston pleaded not guilty Thursday in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court in a November break-in at a medical office. He was released on bond. Telephone calls to the 33-year-old Liston’s home in Aurora have gone unanswered. From wire reports

People and personalities Sheriff wants Lohan charged with battery LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheriff’s investigators want Lindsay Lohan charged with battery for last month’s skirmish with a Betty Ford Center rehabilitation technician. A two-week investigation shows Lohan violated her probation during the altercation and details will be sent to the Los Angeles County Probation Lohan: Department this Skirmish week, Riverside sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Borja said in a statement. A Beverly Hills judge has said Lohan will be jailed if she violates probation. Investigators expect to take their case to the Riverside County district attorney’s office this week for possible prosecution, Borja said. Lohan returned to the Rancho Mirage drug dependency center on Dec. 12 after curfew and refused rehab worker Dawn Holland’s request to take a Breathalyzer test. Lohan is accused of pushing Holland, who then dialed 911, and of ripping the phone away and injuring Holland’s wrist. Lohan has been receiving treatment at Betty Ford, about 120 miles east of Los Angeles, since late September. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox, who has overseen Lohan’s probation for her 31/2 year-old drunken driving case, required Lohan to remain at the rehab center until Monday. John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney’s office, said his office expected to receive investigators’ findings this week. If Lohan is prosecuted in Riverside County, the Los Angeles County probation department would be notified, he said. The actress is due back in court Feb. 25 in Beverly Hills for a hearing at which Fox is expected to address Lohan’s probation and the Betty Ford altercation. TMZ posted video of Lohan heading to a Los Angeles gym on Tuesday. When asked by a cameraman how it felt to be back in L.A., she said it “feels good.”

ONLINE DISCUSSION Wit, comments and rants from our online readers. “It is good that N.D. has a budget surplus.

“Bismarck passed a ‘noise ordinance’ a couple of years ago. It didn’t change anything. It was a joke! Drivers still drive with their stereos pumping out 120 decibels or more in their cars/pick-ups. Motorcycles are still driving around town with straight pipes and/or nonconforming mufflers on their motorcycles ... Citizens do not respect the ‘noise ordinance’ at all. Good luck Mandan on the ‘loud ordinance’ — you are going to need it.” — Energy Efficiency, on “Mandan commissioners to discuss noise issue,” posted Jan. 3

“I have seen it before where the school system chose not to do anything about the bullying because the bully was a star athlete ...

Define the state’s role in oil patch Oil exploration and production in western North Dakota continue to rack up startling numbers. The Tribune reported on Sunday that the eight oil-producing counties have 23,000 more people than they did a decade ago and there’s more on the way. And an Associated Press story speculated, based on a forecast of the state’s oil production, that North Dakota could move to No. 2 in production of crude oil behind Texas. Powerful numbers like these have been behind proposals to spend $1 billion of state money on infrastructure and roads in the oil patch. These numbers also are pushing local and state officials to come up with ways to house the waves of oil workers expected to come to western North Dakota. These numbers are pushing the need to do “something,” quickly, as

the price of a barrel of crude continues to increase, driving demand for more drilling and more wells. Numbers like these make a number of people very uncomfortable. Given that state lawmakers were gaveled into order Tuesday, it might be a good idea for the Legislature and the governor to take a mental step back when it comes to the state’s response to oil patch wants and needs. Let’s make sure we are agreed as to the state’s role and responsibilities, keeping in mind the source of the state’s existing revenue surplus. Certainly, the state has a primary obligation when it comes to state highways and bridges in the

region. And, the governor has made the case for the state giving financial assistance for township and county roads in the oil-producing counties. When it comes to housing, the state’s responsibility isn’t nearly as clear. On the practical side, because of the extent of the housing need, the state has resources and abilities that cities and counties do not have. It can be a source of capital in the form of loans and loan guarantees. But unlike with roads, at the end of the day, the state isn’t interested in having a housing inventory. Truthfully, housing is more a local issue. And really, it needs to

Governor, lawmakers should take a step back from oil boom

involve the oil industry and private enterprise. There are some really interesting things that could be done in terms of housing that involve public-private partnerships. Back to the numbers. Legislators have an obligation to the people in the oil patch. And, they have a lot of money on hand to fulfill that obligation. However, it needs to be done in a responsible fashion, and with the knowledge that despite projections and prognostication, we do not know the future. The Legislature has important work to do in the oil patch. Members of the body, however, should keep a cool head when it comes to dealing with the rapid expansion of the oil industry in western North Dakota. And they ought not let themselves be jerked around by the numbers.

VOICES OF THE PEOPLE Convention won’t be a runaway By SEN. CURTIS OLAFSON Edinburg I am writing in response to the letter by Judy Stahl in the Dec. 23 Tribune. (“There’s no need for a concon”). Her letter was obviously prompted by media coverage of the resolution I will be introducing in the 2011 Legislative session. The resolution is part of a nationwide effort by to convene an Amendments Convention under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. Article V gives state legislatures the power to convene a convention for the sole purpose of proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The resolution I have drafted specifies that the convention is limited to the consideration of one proposed change. The National Debt Relief Amendment would specify that “an increase in the federal debt requires approval from a majority of the legislatures of the separate states.” In any discussion of Article V, critics of efforts by the states to seek amendments immediately launch the

phrase “con-con,” which is short for “Constitutional Convention.” In using this phrase, these critics imply that you are being conned, not once, but twice, by reckless activists who are hell bent on rewriting the entire Constitution. Nowhere in Article V is there mention of a “Constitutional Convention.” Article V clearly specifies the process is intended for the purpose of “proposing amendments.” Extensive historical research by the Goldwater Institute, an

independent watchdog based in Arizona, documents the undeniable fact that Article V does not give states the power to rewrite the entire U.S. Constitution. Instead, the states have a right equal to that of Congress to propose amendments. It is important to remember that unless and until 38 states ratify the results of a convention, nothing changes. We must act now. A runaway Article V Amendments Convention is a myth. An

exploding national debt of $13.9 trillion is reality. (Sen. Curtis Olafson is a Republican representing District 10.)

If it’s not there, don’t spend it By MIKE MOTSCHENBACHER Bismarck I’ve seen so much on TV and in the newspapers about how extending the Bush tax cuts will cost us

nearly a trillion dollars. This is one of the biggest scams that the liberal left is trying to push onto the American people. In all truth, a tax cut costs us nothing — nada, zero, zilch. It simply decreases revenues to the government. Instead of lying about how much it is going to cost, maybe they should do the correct thing and simply quit spending at the same ridiculous levels they are spending at right now. If my salary was cut by $10,000 for the next year, I wouldn’t go find some rich guy to make up the difference. I would simply adjust my spending habits to reflect my lesser income. Maybe the government should learn that, ‘If the money is not there, don’t spend it.’ It’s that simple. When the Democrats figure this out, the whole country is in for a shock. I don’t see that happening anytime soon, though. Until then, we will be stuck listening to the lies and misconceptions about how the rich people aren’t paying their share. Come on, how much more do you think they should pay? If half of my paycheck disappeared every two weeks because someone said I was rich, I’d be pretty upset, too.

Is there good news in the Holy Land? JERUSALEM — “All of these correspondents,” IDF spokeswoman Avital Leibovich notes, referring to the hundreds of reporters, photographers and producers from world press organizations stationed in Jerusalem, “are not here to report on Tel Aviv’s beaches or the wineries of Judea and Samaria. They are here to report the conflict.” True. And because conflict equals news, lack of conflict usually equals neglect. Things are far from peachy in this region — and yet, the quiet itself ought to be news — a welcome respite from the usual tension, fear, and grief. The year 2010 recorded the smallest number of Israelis killed by terror attacks (nine) in a decade, with 28 wounded. By contrast, between 2000 and 2006, during the Second Intifada, 1,100 Israelis were killed by suicide bombers and thousands more were wounded. With buses,


pizzerias and department stores exploding on an almost weekly basis, the entire nation was weighted down with dread. Today, Jerusalem’s shops are bustling and its hotels and restaurants are full. Tourism is booming — a record 3.45 million visitors this past year, bringing $20 billion in revenue to Israel and the Palestinian Authority (some Christian holy sites, like Bethlehem and Nazareth, are in Palestinian territory). More surprising is the economic vitality of the West Bank. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had pledged during his election campaign to make Palestinian economic development a

The quiet is news, and a welcome respite on the West Bank

priority in hopes that an improved standard of living would conduce to peace. A permanent peace remains elusive, but living standards in the West Bank are dramatically improving. The PA reported a 9 percent growth rate for 2010. There is a functioning stock exchange in Nablus. Unemployment, which was 30 percent four years ago, has been reduced to 16 percent. Israel has removed more than 200 checkpoints to facilitate economic activity and installed expensive but fast scanners at other points to permit trucks carrying goods for export to pass quickly (about eight minutes per truck). Since July 2008, the 1 million Arab citizens of Israel can come and go freely from the West Bank. Jenin, the origin of so many suicide bombers during the Intifada, is now the site of a five-story shopping mall, a movie theater, and a number of cafes that operate well past sundown — something that would have been impossible a few years ago when armed teenage gangs ruled the streets. With training and equipment from the United States, the Palestinian

Authority’s 28,000 police now provide security for the West Bank’s 2.4 million residents as well as reigning in terror (coordinating with Israel). West Bank residents can patronize casinos, shopping malls and nightclubs. In contrast to the Hamascontrolled Gaza Strip, which imposes Islamist strictures (e.g., men are barred from cutting women’s hair, and girls were recently forbidden to participate in the United Nations summer camp program), women in the West Bank tend toward Western dress and behavior. Whether this economic boomlet will actually promote peace remains to be seen. Suicide bombers have been thwarted by a combination of the security fence Israel mostly completed in 2006 (for which it was widely reviled by international organizations and governments), and pinpoint targeting of would-be terrorists during nighttime raids into the West Bank. In this, Israel receives cooperation from the PA. “We tell them where they (the terrorists) are, and they arrest them,” explains Leibovich. “This never hap-

pened in the past.” And yet, as the Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman very undiplomatically blurted last week, the Palestinian Authority government is “illegitimate” since it does not conduct elections. In a direct contradiction of the Netanyahu government’s position, Lieberman declared, “Even if we offer the Palestinians Tel Aviv and a retreat to 1947 borders, they will find a reason not to sign a peace agreement with us ... We cannot make peace with them.” There is quiet on the streets on Israel and the West Bank. Business is pretty good. But the fundamentals remain: Even the “moderate” PA President Mahmoud Abbas refuses (he did so again in November) to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Hamas, dug in securely in Gaza, accumulates more accurate and longer-range missiles from Iran. And Hezbollah is part of the government in Lebanon. Those reporters waiting for conflict to report will probably not be disappointed much longer. (Mona Charen’s syndicated column appears in the Tribune on Wednesdays.) ■ Bismarck Tribune

Opportunity knocks Continued from 1A progress of our industries, on our main streets, in our schools and in our overall economic growth.” To continue job growth, Dalrymple recommended a focus on roads and water supplies in the oil and gas producing counties. Along with jobs, oil and gas development have “also brought extreme wear and tear on roads and pushed our water supply systems to the limit,” he said. He said he would address flood control at the Red River and Devils Lake. Dalrymple also pointed to research and development, workforce retention and training and expansion of global trade. To foster new start-up businesses, he proposed a new Entrepreneurship Center of Excellence. Dalrymple said the state should “begin a new approach to funding higher education” based on outcomes and overseen by a commission on higher education funding. “After decades of funding our 11 campuses on the basis of past appropriations and past expenditures, we have lost track of the rationale for each campus’ funding levels,” Dalrymple said. His suggested budget would increase state general fund support for North Dakota’s public colleges by $55 million over two years. Dalrymple outlined a plan for a new state commission to study linking each college’s state support to specific results, such as the number of degrees awarded and whether students graduate on time. Dalrymple says a centers of excellence program for colleges needs to be refocused to encourage job training, entrepreneurship and turn university research into products. His budget includes $20 million for “centers of excellence” grants. The speech also set quality of life as a priority and cited the $8 million in the governor’s proposed budget for mental health care and a 3 percent pay increase for care providers for elderly and

New budget method for higher ed Gov. Jack Dalrymple wants an overhaul of how state money is spent on North Dakota’s university system. Dalrymple said the state should “begin a new approach to funding higher education” based on outcomes and overseen by a commission on higher education funding. “After decades of funding our 11 campuses on the basis of past appropriations and past expenditures, we have lost track of the rationale for each campus’ funding levels,” Dalrymple said.

incongruity.” Schneider says Dalrymple should also emphasize state aid for pre-kindergarten classes. Democrats said they wanted more details about the governor’s proposals for higher education and were wary about what criteria a funding commission would use to evaluate schools. Assistant House Democratic leader Lee Kaldor of Mayville says he’s concerned about the benchmarks a commission would use to determine whether aid is being well spent. “We’re going to be very watchful on that,” said Rep. Lee Kaldor, D-Mayville, the assistant minority leader. “We’re concerned about the metrics and outcomes and how they’re defined.” Democratic leaders, in their response to the address, also found areas for agreement in Dalrymple’s speech concerning the areas of focus he laid out for infrastructure, human services and education. “The debate will come around the edges of that and where we set the priorities,” said Ryan Taylor, D-Taylor, the Senate minority leader. The Democratic leaders said infrastructure in the oil producing counties should be treated with more urgency, though that issue is already top of the agenda in the new session. “We’ve probably wasted two legislative bienniums in not getting ready for what we’re experiencing now,” Kaldor said. — Staff and wire reports disabled people. “It has been said that a society is best measured by the way it treats its most vulnerable,” Dalrymple said. Making the speech before

the combined chambers of the Legislature, Dalrymple, a Republican, was largely addressing members of his own party, which increased their strong majorities in the

House and Senate in November. Republican leaders mixed praise for the governor’s priorities with caution over the price tag they would carry. “There’s plenty of room for tweaking and readjustment,” said Senate Majority Leader Bob Stenehjem of Bismarck. “Certainly, there are things in there that we’re not crazy about.” Stenehjem said he was concerned about spending levels, creating ongoing obligations and watching the amount of general fund spending versus spending from funds supported by the oil boom. He said said much of the $1 billion surplus is either parked in state funds that are difficult to access, or counted upon to maintain existing state services. North Dakota’s bill for Medicaid, a state and federal medical assistance program for the poor, will jump more than $170 million over the next two years without adding services, Stenehjem said. Federal stimulus money that was used to bolster states’ Medicaid budgets is

Dalrymple renews pitch for office Gov. Jack Dalrymple is renewing his pitch for a North Dakota energy office within the state’s Department of Commerce. In his State of the State speech to the Legislature on Tuesday, Dalrymple said the move is needed because energy is “such a large part” of North Dakota’s economic future. He says the proposed office would support all energy development, along with opportunities for North Dakota businesses to supply the energy industry. Dalrymple’s proposed budget includes $600,000 over two years for the new division. Some lawmakers have been skeptical of the proposal because of its price tag and its request for two new employees for the Commerce Department. Dalrymple says the “payback to the citizens of North Dakota would be tremendous” if the office is established. — Associated Press drying up, and North Dakota must pay a greater share of the program’s costs because of its greater prosperity. “It’s going to be a struggle from our end. It doesn’t appear that there’s been a whole lot of money left on the table for discretionary money,” Stenehjem said. “Some (legislators) might just come to the Legislature with a good idea here and there that might require some funding, and it doesn’t seem like there is a whole lot left for that.” House Majority Leader Al Carlson of Fargo said he wanted to see more emphasis on using surplus revenue to cover tax reductions, but the party agreed with Dal-

rymple’s priorities. “Obviously, we’re all Republicans,” he said. “The fact that he’s looking forward 10 to 20 years is really good.” Dalrymple, who is a former chairman of the North Dakota Trade Office, also said the state’s businesses also have “incredible” prospects for doing business overseas. “This is not a time to slow down,” Dalrymple said. “We have the opportunity now to build North Dakota into the very best state that it can possibly be.” (The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Navy takes hits on timing Continued from 1A called a news conference Tu e s d a y i n No r f o l k t o announce that Honors was stepping down as ship commander and being reassigned to administrative duties ashore. “After personally reviewing the videos created while serving as executive officer, I have lost confidence in Capt. Honors’ ability to lead effectively,” said Adm. John Harvey, head of U.S. Fleet Forces Command, in Norfolk. Harvey declined to answer questions from reporters. The Pentagon said the disciplinary system isn’t foolproof but generally works. “There are always going to be people do things they shouldn’t,” said Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman. “They will be held accountable.” Yet Honors was set to deploy with the USS Enterprise this month as the ship’s commander when The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk obtained videos he made three and four years ago as the carrier’s executive officer. Honors, who took command of the ship in May, appears in the videos using gay slurs, simulating masturbation and

staging suggestive shower scenes. While many sailors aboard the ship at the time have defended Honors on Facebook postings — contending he was simply providing a much-needed morale boost during long deployments at sea — senior military officials interviewed by The Associated Press said the videos showed a disturbing lack of judgment. No leaders in senior posts at the Pentagon and in the Navy could explain why, if Honors’ conduct was so questionable, he was promoted after the videos aired. Last week, the Navy said the videos were intended merely as “humorous skits” and stopped airing immediately after other senior officers became aware of them. According to the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen weren’t aware of the videos until this week. They were said to have left any disciplinary action up to the Navy. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus first learned of the videos last

Glenn Close calls image ‘insulting’ RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Actress Glenn Close is speaking out about appearing briefly in one of the raunchy comedy videos made by a senior officer on a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier a few years ago. The award-winning actress said she appeared in a video clip after a “seemingly innocent request” made during a visit to the USS Enterprise more than four years ago. In a statement issued Tuesday, Close called the use of her image deeply offensive and insulting. In 1995, Close appeared in a TV movie, “Serving in Silence,” a true story about Army officer Margarethe Cammermeyer, who was discharged for admitting she was a lesbian. weekend, spokespeople said, and both supported the decision to fire Honors. They declined to say, however, whether either official pressed for the dismissal, saying only that it was Harvey’s decision. The lewd videos were far from the first time that U.S. troops have been disciplined for misbehaving. In 1991, the Navy became embroiled in the “Tailhook” scandal in which naval pilots were accused of sexually abusing female officers at a Las Vegas convention. During the Iraq war, shocking images surfaced of prisoners being abused by American soldiers at Abu Ghraib. And in 2008, a

Marine was kicked out of the service after being videotaped throwing a puppy off a cliff while on patrol in Iraq and joking about it. A conservative group that has previously clashed with Adm. Mullen on his support to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban seized on the latest incident on Tuesday. “Now we know that Adm. Mullen’s rose-colored crystal ball is unreliable,” said Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness. Asked to respond, Mullen spokesman Capt. John Kirby said, “The chairman’s long record of command and leadership, afloat and ashore,


Saltzburg, general counsel of the National Institute of Military Justice and a law professor at George Washington University. The son of a small-town police commissioner in upstate New York, Honors graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1983 and attended the U.S. Naval Fighter Weapons School, which produces the Navy’s Top Gun pilots. Honors flew 85 combat missions in three theaters, landing on 15 different carriers. “Everybody regarded him as a great fighter pilot — a guy that you would want to enter a dogfight with,” said Ward Carroll, a former aviator who flew with Honors. Carroll was “Goose” to Honors’ “Maverick,” Carroll said, comparing himself and his friend to the main characters in the movie “Top Gun.” With his boyish looks, his sandy blond hair and his first two initials, O.P., he was dubbed “Opie” by his comrades. He was funny and irreverent but always professional, Carroll said. He said he doesn’t remember Honors ever using the homophobic words or expressing the anger seen in the videos. “The guy on the video, I don’t recognize,” he said. Honors and Carroll served in the 1990s during the Tailhook scandal, in which scores of naval pilots were accused of groping female officers and engaging in other loutish, frat-boy behavior at a Las Vegas convention in 1991. The scandal rocked the Navy and wrecked the careers of some of its top leaders. Carroll said he does not know whether Honors was at the convention. “Anybody who stayed in the Navy after that, whether they obeyed the lines is one thing, but they certainly knew where the lines were,” Carroll said, which is why he said Honors’ conduct surprised him. “It is just vulgar. I’m at odds to figure out how Opie thought that was going to be all right.” speaks for itself.” The Pentagon said December’s congressional vote to end the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban did not con-

He has a quiet, peaceful demeanor.” Under Texas compensation laws for the wrongly imprisoned, Dupree is eligible for $80,000 for each year he was behind bars, plus a lifetime annuity. He could receive $2.4 million in a lump sum that is not subject to federal income tax. The compensation law, the nation’s most generous, was passed in 2009 by the Texas Legislature after dozens of wrongly convicted men were released from prison.

Dallas County’s record of DNA exonerations — Dupree is No. 21 — is unmatched nationally because the county crime lab maintains biological evidence even decades after a conviction, leaving samples available to test.

James Bain was wrongly imprisoned for 35 years in Florida, and Lawrence McKinney spent more than 31 years in a Ten-

He was released in July on mandatory supervision, and lived under house arrest until October. About a week after his release, DNA test results came back proving his innocence in the sexual assault. A day after his release, Dupree married his fiance, Selma. The couple met two decades ago while he was in prison. His exoneration hearing was delayed until Tuesday while authorities retested the

DNA and made sure it was a match to the victim. Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins supported Dupree’s innocence claim. Dupree stood through most of the short hearing, until state district Judge Don Adams told him, “You’re free to go.” One of Dupree’s lawyers, Innocence Project Co-Director Barry Scheck, called it “a glorious day.” “It’s a joy to be free again,” Dupree said. This latest wait was nothing for Dupree, who was up for parole as recently as 2004. He was set to be released and thought he was going home, until he learned he first would have to attend

a sex offender treatment program. Those in the program had to go through what is known as the “four R’s.” They are recognition, remorse, restitution and resolution, said Jim Shoemaker, who served two years with Dupree in the Boyd Unit south of Dallas. “He couldn’t get past the first part,” said Shoemaker, who drove up from Houston to attend Dupree’s hearing.

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON — Democrat Nancy Pelosi said she had no regrets on her last day as House speaker Tuesday, a reign that lasted four years and is ending after the November elections. Pelosi said Tuesday she looks forward to leading a loyal but tenacious opposition in the House. She started by calling Republicans hypocrites for trying to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, saying it would add to the federal budget deficit. Republicans won the Ho u s e m a j o r i t y i n t h e November elections and John Boehner of Ohio will be sworn in as the new speaker today. Pelosi — the first female speaker — will be demoted to minority leader. “I don’t really look back, I look forward, and we look forward to, as I said before, being a willing partner and solving the problems of the American people,” Pelosi said at a news conference with other House Democrats. “When our Republican colleagues have positive solutions, again, they will have a willing partner in solving the problems of the American people.” Pelosi said House Democrats will focus on creating jobs, improving the economy and shrinking the federal budget deficit. The deficit hit $1.3 trillion in the budget year that ended in September — a year in which Democrats controlled Congress and the White House. Republicans took exception.

Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington on Tuesday. “The House Democratic leadership’s utter failure to stop Washington’s runaway spending spree — which included failing to pass a budget for the first time in modern history — was one of the biggest examples of their utter refusal to listen to the American people,” said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. “We have pledged to do better, and we will.” With unemployment stuck above 9 percent, Pelosi was asked whether she regretted not doing more to improve the nation’s stillstruggling economy while she was speaker. Pelosi said the nation’s economy was in a “neardepression” two years ago, when Obama first took office. Since then, she said, the House passed numerous bills designed to create jobs that were ultimately blocked i n t h e Se n a t e, u s u a l l y because the two chambers couldn’t agree on how to pay

for them. “We have no regrets,” Pelosi said. “This administration and this Congress inherited a near-depression. And so the initiatives that we took were positive for the American people. It’s not enough to save people from a depression, though. Nineand-a-half percent unemployment is intolerable and as long as we have that we have to continue to fight for job creation.” Pelosi chided House Republicans for scheduling a vote next week on a bill to repeal the new health care law. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that the massive law will slightly reduce the federal deficit over the next 10 years. Repealing the law would t h e re f o re i n c re a s e t h e deficit, Pelosi said. Republicans say repealing the law is one of their top priorities, but they are sure to fail in the Senate, where Democrats still have a majority.

If he can’t beat them backed freshmen, take control of the House when the 112th Congress convenes at noon today. One of the first orders of business will be the election of Ohio Republican John Boehner as speaker, replacing Democrat Nancy Pelosi. In a celebratory mood, House Republicans met for nearly three hours during the day as they looked ahead to their two-year term of office. GOP freshmen have emphasized the need to reduce the deficit, but there are limits to how far the caucus is willing to go. Ten-year veteran Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said his colleagues defeated his proposal to use savings from spending cuts only for deficit reduction, as opposed to shifting some money to other government programs. Across the Capitol, Democrats retained their majority in the November elections. But the 60 Senate seats they controlled two years ago — enough to push through much of Obama’s agenda — will fall to 53. That will make it harder to enact legislation Obama still seeks. But it gives them more than enough clout to block passage of bills like the health care repeal that House Republicans desire. Obama, speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One as he flew home from a year-end vacation in Hawaii, predicted Republicans would “play to their (political) base” initially. He added, “But I’m pretty confident that they’re going to recognize that our job is to govern and make sure that we are delivering jobs for the American people.” He said the two sides can build on the lame duck session of Congress in December, when they agreed on a compromise to prevent income taxes from rising, to extend unemployment benefits and to enact a Social Security tax cut that took effect on Saturday. Cantor challenged and chided Obama by turn in a news conference in which he said the GOP envisions a “cut and grow majority” to reduce government spending and regulations and benefit the economy. The first spending cut vote

is set for Thursday, a 5 percent reduction in the amount ticketed for lawmakers’ and committees’ offices as well as leadership staff. Aides estimated the savings at $35 million over the next nine months. Republicans have pledged to vote on bills that cut spending at least once a week. Obama is expected to deliver his State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress on Jan. 25, and Cantor said he was “looking to see some significant spending cuts proposed by the president that we can work on together.” He also said he hopes Obama will prevail on Senate Democrats to ban earmarks, which are funds dedicated to specific pet projects of individual lawmakers. He added, “Tax reform could be a significant boost, and I’m hopeful and expecting the president” will speak on that subject as well. Cantor also said he was “hopeful the president will re-evaluate his position on regulations.” Republicans argue that the economy suffers from overregulation by the government, highlighting the health care bill as one example. C a n t o r ’s c o m m e n t s underscored the change that has occurred in the political landscape since the last election. Instead of merely opposing Obama’s every proposal, as they did in 2009 and 2010, Republicans must compromise with him if they are to show results in their drive to cut spending. Yet their eagerness to vote quickly on repealing the health care bill is in line with a no-compromise position articulated by the tea party forces that helped propel many GOP challengers to victory. Republicans have the votes to pass the health care repeal bill though the House. Yet the action is largely symbolic, since Democratic leaders have already pronounced it dead on arrival in the Senate. And Democrats made it clear they intend to make the House vote as uncomfortable as possible for Republicans, too. “Under the Republican repeal effort, insurance companies would once again be

Continued from 1A able to drop people when they get sick. Children with pre-existing conditions would be denied coverage,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. “Young people will not be able to stay on their parents’ insurance until they’re age 26. Pregnant women and breast cancer survivors could be denied coverage. Seniors will face an increase in their prescription drug costs, millions thrown back into the Medicare Part D doughnut hole.” One of the first votes today will be enactment of a series of rules changes that Republicans crafted to increase openness in Congress’ proceedings. Despite the commitment, Republicans intend to pass the health care bill next week without committee hearings or permitting Democrats a chance to seek changes. They also have decided to ignore estimates from the Congressional Budget Office that the bill as it originally passed would cut spending by $143 billion over the next decade. Cantor refused to acknowledge that repeal would increase deficits at a time Republicans have vowed to reduce red ink. “Everyone knows, this bill has the potential to bankrupt the federal government and the states,” he said, although he cited no estimates. He said there would be open hearings and Democrats would be allowed to seek changes when Republicans draft an alternative health care bill. No timetable has been set. By nature and tradition, the Senate moves more slowly than the House. A group of Democrats led by Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico is expected to propose changes on Wednesday that would make it harder for the minority to delay legislation by filibuster. Republicans are opposed. “The brazenness of this proposed action is that Democrats are proposing to use the very tactics that in the past almost every Democratic leader has denounced, including President Obama and Vice President Biden,’” Te n n e s s e e Se n . L a m a r Alexander said in a speech during the day.

“She’s back to her old self again!” Australian “racehorse remedy” gives DOGS WITH JOINT PROBLEMS a new lease on life! Shocking improvements reported in just 7 DAYS! By Alyssa Hanwex Health & Science Freelancer Melbourne: Heidi, a 8-year old Shepherd mix, was in bad shape. She was dragging her hind legs when she walked. And every day it seemed harder and harder for her to get around. It was tough to watch… Heidi was in such obvious discomfort; the vet was convinced the dog’s days were numbered. But then a miracle happened. Her owner read about DGP, an Australian joint discovery for dogs; and decided to give it a try. The package arrived in just a few short days, what happened next was astonishing… “She’s got her old spirit back! I’m extremely grateful. DGP turned my dog’s life around!”


In less than a week, Heidi began moving freely, happily going for walks and even chasing birds again!

Brandy: 7-year old St. Bernard Before DGP: Joint discomfort: limping, low energy.

After DGP: “In a very short time he stopped limping, was energetic and happy. Not only was he back to his old self, he seemed more like his puppy-self… DGP has been a miracle!”

If It Helps Million-Dollar Racehorses, Why Not Your Dog’s Aching Joints?

Tess: 12-year old Pembroke Corgi Before DGP: Severe discomfort; reduced mobility; stiff legs, withdrawn from family,

The discovery of DGP began in Melbourne, Australia; where a well known veterinarian, Dr. Kim McKellar, had an idea. Since he had overwhelming success with a formula for racehorses with joint problems; he thought, why not dogs?

After DGP: “Tess moves more easily…she smiles now! Her eyes are brighter…and spends more time close to family members. Her activity level has increased and she just seems up for more play.”

And since so many dogs experience dangerous side effects with conventional drugs, McKellar knew he was on to something big. He asked scientists and herbalists to tweak the racehorse joint formula and make it suitable for dogs. Dr. McKellar decided to test it on his own dog, Samson, a 13-year old black lab. The dog was in constant agony. He didn’t move very much… and would let out a loud yelp every time he tried to get up off the floor. It was heartbreaking. So McKellar began giving his first “patient”, Samson, the new formula. It worked!

Samson’s Joint Problems Vanish! Within just a few days, Samson showed stunning improvement. And in less than two weeks McKellar said he was like “a young dog again!” Samson rejoined the family, started going on walks again, even bouncing and wagging his tail! Dr. McKellar was ecstatic. Not only was he able to save his own dog, but he could now help millions of other dogs live life without joint problems too. This miracle joint pain formula, called DGP, is a custom blend of native Australian herbs and other joint soothing ingredients. DGP helps keep dog’s joints more flexible so they can move freely again.

Ben: 6-year old Golden Retriever Before DGP: Difficulty getting up. Spent most time lying down. After DGP: “Ben gets up with ease… and puts weight on his back legs… he even runs; he swoops around the backyard and gallops up the steps. Ben is much more playful, is smiling and happy!”

Now starts The Great White Lull And now begins what I think of as The Great White Lull. This January lull has a twin that rolls around in late August. That one has a different flavor, a golden kind of coasting-to-astop feeling, when we arrive in the still eye of the hurricane that has whirled us through summer, before it powers up again with the school year.



Argument over sex leads to Standing Rock stabbing By JENNY MICHAEL Bismarck Tribune A woman accused of murder on the Standing Rock Reservation told law enforcement officials she acted in self defense in stabbing her boyfriend to death after an argument over sex. Ivanna Red Bow, 26, was charged on Monday with second-degree murder in U.S. District Court in the

death of Loren Jay Uses Arrow, 23. She is being held in the Burleigh C o u n t y Detention C e n t e r pending a F r i d a y detention hearing. She also is slated Red Bow to appear at a preliminary hearing on

Jan. 14. FBI Agent Jacob O’Connell said in an affidavit that Red Bow told officers she and Uses Arrow were arguing about whether to a man or a woman should join them in a threesome for sex, and the argument became physical. She said Uses Arrow pushed her around, pulled her hair and caused a bump on her head. “Red Bow stated she

defended herself by retrieving the knife from the kitchen and returning to the living room,” the affidavit said. Red Bow told officers that Uses Arrow told her she didn’t have the guts to stab him, and she then stabbed him in the left side of the chest, the affidavit said.

RINK WORKOUT The Great January Lull feels more like an opening-up — a wide-open space of 31 days at the top of winter. The hullabaloo of Christmas is past, and it’s still a long time until we have to accelerate into spring. The January Lull is the luxury of a wide swath of time to fill as we please. Retailers know this and promote things like fitness gear and storage tubs, piggybacking on our optimistic vows to organize our photos or our closets, clean out, clear out, shape up. January offers itself as a time for housecleaning — physical, mental, spiritual. Unless you are lucky enough to be going on a cruise or vacation, it’s a great way to make the most of the long cold, when we are confined between ever-growing barricades of snow. Except for those all-weather runners, and bless ‘em, most of us feel reluctant to venture outside other than to run necessary errands. So, in a delicate balance of confinement and freedom, we look around and think, “I’ve got a month. What shall I do with it?” We could write our memoirs or devote more time to our hobbies, get the recycling cleared out, sort out thrift store donations, rearrange the furniture. But whatever we pick, the long lull lets us putter-through, rather than power-through, our January. Puttering is one of the underappreciated joys of life. Puttering’s gift is to blockade the “hurry” from taking over. A break from the typical slap-dash, last-gasp, skip-the-corners frenzy. Instead, we can meander from task to task at our leisure. Changing the pictures on the walls. Taking a class. Leafing through plant catalogs and dreaming our spring gardens. Burrowing through drawers and computer files and organizing our paper and paperless lives. Shredding and mending. Ecclesiastes reminds us that to everything there is a season. There is a season of mowing and weeding and harvesting. And there is a season when it’s done. There is a season for baking and Christmas buying and holiday visitors and New Year’s toasts. And there is a season when it’s done. Sometimes, in our zeal to make every moment useful, we disrespect the lulls. We skip over them or rev them up to the speed of the rest of the year. Then we must firmly take ourselves by the scruff of the neck and sit ourselves down to think about the gift of slowness. There are seasons to be lulled. To plan a movie marathon, to try some new recipes, to dive into books for a good luxurious read. Time to go through photo albums and let a warm wash or poignant sting of memories pull us back back into the past for a long swim. We should remind ourselves to honor the lulls as an irreplaceable part of an ancient cycle of work and sabbath. A full life needs both. (Reach Karen Herzog at 2508267 or

Mandan City Commissioners on Tuesday directed their staff to draft a noise ordinance mirroring one that voters passed in November before it was thrown out in court. Commissioners asked attorney Malcolm Brown to draft an ordinance limiting sound to 50 decibels in residential areas after 11 p.m. The November noise cap was approved by 57 percent of the vote on Nov. 2. Yet, it was canceled with a court ruling that petitioners didn’t file the paperwork properly for the ballot. Commissioner Sandra Tibke questioned where the decibel levels should be measured for the noise. “I do not want to go against the will of the people. I am interested in amending it in the future,”she said. Commissioner Tom Jackson said it was time to move forward on the issue after working on it 16 months. “The city said to homeowners, we’re going to take care of it. ... In the end, the homeowners had to take care of it,”he said. The city had tried to solve complaints with a joint committee, localized ordinances, tying it to liquor licenses and a private agreement with a bar operator. None found consensus so petitioners put it on the ballot. Commissioner Dot Frank lauded the progress of efforts made by bar owners to limit noise from their property since the complaints first came before the city in 2009. “I am shocked to hear although we won’t go against the people, we will consider changing exactly what they voted for,”Frank said. Mandan has nuisance laws on its books but no noise laws. The ordinance on the ballot allowed Independence Day week activities, race track events, band shell activities and noise from Buggies-n-Blues to be exempt. Mayor Tim Helbling limited discussion Tuesday to commissioners only since it wasn’t a public hearing. He still questions if noise limits are enforceable, but Continued on 6B

Water storage meeting may be heated By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune Now that Lake Sakakawea has plenty of water, those drawing large amounts of water from the reservoir could end up paying dearly for it. Weeks after the Army Corps of Engineers said it would charge a storage fee to oil companies that use the water to fracture geologic formations to extract oil, other users like municipalities and irrigators could face the same fees.

Bob Shaver, who heads the state Water Commission’s Water Appropriation Division, said the corps is likely in for a fight. The corps is hold a public meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Doublewood Inn in Bismarck to take comments on the proposal. The corps’ draft surplus water report proposes temporarily making 100,000 acre-feet of water a year available for municipal and industrial use. Shaver said the proposal amounts to a “huge new tax” on

water users and infringes on the rights of North Dakota to manage water issues involving a resource that is the state’s. “We believe the state has the right to use and allocate water without storage fees,” Shaver said. The state has been trying in vain for years to quantify the amount of water that would be considered the natural flow coming out of the lake, he said. The corps’ proposal, now in draft form, would levy a torage fee of $20.91 per acre-foot. An acre-

foot is the amount of water needed to cover an acre, one foot deep. Shaver said water users, especially irrigators, would essentially be paying a fee for water they may or may not use. Ultimately, it will not change the way in which the corps manages the system, he said. Shaver said he suspects other river states like Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska will mount similar challenges to the plan. “The real issue is states’ rights,” Continued on 6B

Pomeroy joining DC law firm Longtime North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy says he’ll be joining a law firm in Washington, D.C., as an attorney and health policy adviser. The Alston & Bird firm announced Tuesday it has hired Pomeroy and his former chief of staff, Bob Siggins. Pomeroy is starting his new job Monday. He says he’s being hired because he knows the workings of the insurance industry, Congress and health policy. He says he doesn’t see himself advocating policies that he opposed as a member of Congress. Pomeroy says he looked into a North Dakota job and spoke to four law firms and two consulting firms. Pomeroy is barred from lobbying Congress for a year, but he says he may do some lobbying work down the road. —Associated Press

Halliday man killed in crash HALLIDAY (AP) — A resident of Halliday was killed when he crashed his car into the rear of a tractor near the west central North Dakota town. The Highway Patrol said 89-year-old Joseph Schweitzer died in the crash on state Highway 200 about 5 p.m. Monday. Authorities say Schweitzer’s car hit the tractor and went into the ditch. The driver of the tractor was not hurt.

Body found in Horace identified FARGO (AP) — A man found dead in Horace has been identified as 44-year-old Vincent Friedman of Fargo. The Cass County sheriff’s office said Tuesday that an autopsy is pending and the cause of death has not been determined. The body was found Monday morning behind the Dakota Ag Cooperative Elevator. Sheriff’s Capt. Rick Majerus said earlier there were no evident signs of foul play.

Pardoned Minn. man makes bail MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — A pardoned Minnesota sex offender facing new sexual assault charges has made bail. Jeremy Giefer, 37, of Vernon Center, posted a $350,000 bond for his release from jail Monday. Authorities say conditions of Giefer’s release include GPS monitoring and no contact with girls under 16. Giefer’s case has drawn attention because he received a pardon in 2008 on his 1994 conviction of having sex with a 14-year-old girl when he was 19. They later married. Then-Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Attorney General Lori Swanson and a former state Supreme Court chief justice voted to grant Giefer’s petition for a pardon. Now prosecutors have accused Giefer of assaulting a second girl hundreds of times — before and after he received the pardon. He says he’s innocent.

$355M jackpot draws crowds People lined up to buy Mega Millions tickets in N.D., other states By MARK CARLSON Associated Press PHOENIX — Thousands of people lined up in 41 states and in Washington, D.C., ahead of the Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday in hopes of buying the winning ticket for the lottery game’s $355 million jackpot. The prize is the fourth largest in U.S. history and the second largest in Mega Millions history, said Arizona Lottery spokeswoman Cindy Esquer. The lottery’s prize of $390 million in March 2007 remains the nation’s richest on record. North Dakota store workers also reported brisk sales. “We’ve had quite a few people buying tickets,” said Amber McCauley, a clerk at a Holiday Station Store in Bismarck. In other cities, workers said they were seeing customers who never before had bought lottery tickets. “We got a pretty good, steady flow of traffic as far as buying the tickets goes,” said Bill Evans, owner of Beaver Dam Service Station in northwest Arizona. “As the day progresses we’ll

A line forms at the Fuel On Convenience store to buy Mega Million lottery tickets in Pittsburgh, on Tuesday. have a line out the door, I’m sure.” Hundreds of people poured into the tiny Arizona towns of Littlefield and Beaver Dam, crossing into the state from Nevada and Utah, where Mega Millions tickets are not sold. At Rosie’s Cafe on U.S. 93 north of Kingman near the Nevada line, hundreds drove in over the weekend to buy tickets for the Mega Millions game and a repeat was likely Tuesday because of the new Hoover Dam bypass, which opened in October and eases travel

across the Nevada-Arizona stateline. “The line was going out the door,” with 500 or more in line at times on Saturday and Sunday, said waitress and cashier Christine Millim. The Mega Millions game is similar to Powerball — players try to win by matching five regular numbers plus the “Mega ball.” Tickets cost $1. Larry White, who bought a ticket in Atlanta, said he would use the money to help his family if he claimed the multimil-

lion dollar prize. “I’m going to take care of my family — buy them new houses, new cars and travel a little bit,” he said. Others said they would use the money to start foundations, retire or take vacations. Sheila Twine, in Atlanta, said she would pay off her and her daughter’s bills and help people in need. “With all this money, I could help a lot of people,” she said. The jackpot’s cash option works out to about $224 million. Besides the jackpot, prizes range from $2 to $250,000. Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday night. The game expanded last year under a cross-selling agreement with Powerball to become available in 41 states and Washington, D.C.

Man assaulted teacher 20 years ago FARGO (AP) — A North Dakota man sent to prison 20 years ago for assaulting a Minnesota teacher in her home with a tire iron is now accused of hitting his landlord’s 82-year-old wife in the head with a dumbbell. Joel Johansen, 41, of Fargo, is charged with aggravated assault in the alleged attack on Carol Wambheim that authorities say fractured her skull. Johansen did not immediately respond to a telephone message at the Cass County Jail seeking comment. His criminal history includes burglary and assault convictions for attacking a Moorhead, Minn., high school gymnastics teacher in January 1990. He was sentenced to more than five years in prison.

Report: Ice present in Colo. crash COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Some pilots h a d re p o r t e d l i g h t i c e buildup on their aircraft just before a small civilian plane crashed in Colorado, killing an Air Force bomber pilot from South Dakota and his wife, investigators said Tuesday. A freezing fog covered Colorado Springs Municipal Airport at the time of the Dec. 22 crash that killed Capt. Martin Anthony Riggan and Nicole Riggan, according to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board. No one else was aboard. The Air Force said Martin Riggan, 25, was a B-1B pilot stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D. He was a first lieutenant at the time but was promoted posthumously. The El Paso County coroner identified Nicole Riggan as the other victim. Her age and hometown weren’t available. The NTSB hasn’t released the cause. The single-engine Mooney M20E departed from Rapid City, S.D., near Ellsworth, that morning bound for Colorado Springs. Investigators say Martin Riggan had aborted one landing attempt in Colorado Springs and was circling for another at the time of the crash.

Bismarck still has metros’ lowest jobless rate By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON — Unemployment rates rose in more than twothirds of the nation’s largest metro areas in November, a sharp reversal from the previous month and the most since June. The Labor Department said Tuesday that unemployment rates rose in 258 of the 372 largest cities, fell in 88 and remained the same in 26. That’s worse than the previous month, when rates fell in 200 areas and rose in 108. Bismarck, N.D. recorded the lowest unemployment rate with 3.3 percent, followed by Fargo, N.D. and Lincoln, Neb. at 3.5 percent each. The economy is strengthening, but employers have been reluctant to create jobs. Hiring will pick up in

“The areas really affected by the housing bust have yet to come back.” Regional economist Jim Diffley 2011, but not enough to significantly lower the unemployment rate, economists forecast. Metro areas in states with the weakest housing markets, such as California, Nevada, Florida and Georgia, are seeing ongoing increases in unemployment. Las Vegas, Atlanta, San Francisco and Miami all saw their rates rise. Construction jobs haven’t returned. Real estate agents and mortgage broker positions have also disappeared. “The areas really affected by the

housing bust have yet to come back,” said Jim Diffley, a regional economist at IHS Global Insight. Nationwide, the unemployment rate rose in November to 9.8 percent from 9.6 percent the previous month, according to a report last month from the Labor Department. The metro data lags behind the national data by several weeks. Unlike the national report, the metro figures aren’t seasonally adjusted to account for trends such as the hiring of agricultural workers for fall harvests or the layoff of temporary retail employees after the winter holidays. That makes the data more volatile from month to month. In some hard-hit areas, many laid-off workers are giving up searches. Fourteen metro areas in Michigan reported lower unemployment rates — six of which were among the 10 sharpest drops in

November. That included Detroit, where the rate fell to 12 percent from 13.3 percent. But thirteen of them also said that fewer people are employed or looking for work. Once the unemployed stop hunting for jobs, the government no longer counts them as unemployed. Detroit’s work force dropped by 36,500 in November, or 1.7 percent. Anne Arbor, Battle Creek, Flint and Lansing all saw smaller drops. “That is not a good sign,” said Sophia Koropeckyj, managing director for Moody’s Analytics. “It means that people are giving up and could be leaving the state.” El Centro, Calif. had the highest unemployment rate in the nation, at 29.1 percent, followed by Yuma, Ariz., with 24.8 percent. The two areas are adjacent and have large numbers of migrant farm workers.

Park sets attendance record in centennial year Glacier National Park reports more than 2 million visitors in 2010 KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — Glacier National Park’s centennial year was also its busiest — the park saw more than 2.2 million visitors and held more than 130 centennial events. Gl a c i e r s e t a re c o rd w i t h 2,216,109 visitors in the first 11 months of the year, breaking the old mark of 2,203,847 in all of 1983. “We all feel it has been a success and the numbers certainly reflect it,” Glacier spokeswoman Amy Vanderbilt said. Glacier’s centennial coordinator, Kass Hardy, said the park’s relation-

ships with the Glacier National Park Fund, the Glacier Association, the Glacier Institute and Glacier National Park Associates were strengthened as the park partners helped celebrate Glacier’s 100th anniversary. Personal connections to the park were renewed with nine alumni reunions, Hardy said. “It was amazing to watch those people come back together to a place that was so meaningful to them,” she said. Among the groups that gathered in 2010 were former park employ-

ees, former drivers of the park’s red tour buses and former employees of Many Glacier Hotel and the Belton Chalet. “Some of these people hadn’t been back to the park for 20 or 30 years,” she said. “It was inspiring to see their personal connections and see them reconnecting with one another and the park.” As part of the centennial celebration, seven legacy projects were planned and funding secured for five. Some of the work is under way. “The legacy projects were set up with the Glacier National Park Fund,”

Hardy said. “The idea was to have some kind of bricks-and-mortar things done in the centennial year.” One project was to increase handicapped-accessible trails and one on the northeast side of Swiftcurrent Lake is nearly complete. Another project was raising money for new exhibits at the Logan Pass Visitor Center. The exhibits are being built and should be installed over the next couple of years, Hardy said. The Glacier National Park Fund is also working to develop a wildlife viewing area in the Many Glacier area.

GLASGOW, Mont. (AP) — Wildlife officials say a multiyear investigation into the illegal killing of elk in north central Montana’s Phillips County has led to the convictions of 11 hunters from several states. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks criminal investigator Lennie Buhmann says $37,300 in fines and restitution has been collected in the case, which involves defendants from Columbus and Shepherd, Mont., and South Dakota, Utah and Arizona. Buhmann says the case involved a group that hunted in south Phillips County from 2000 to 2009, killing elk without licenses and valid permits while loaning licenses to those in the hunting party who did not have them. In all, 11 illegally killed bull elk were recovered. A cow elk also was illegally killed but was not recovered. Eight of the defendants lost a total 22 years of hunting, fishing and trapping privileges in 36 states.

Man sentenced in Facebook sting FARGO (AP) — A Fargo man accused of trying to buy marijuana from an undercover police officer who posed as a pot seller on Facebook has been sentenced to 1 ½ years of probation. Benjamin Felch, 21, pleaded guilty to felony counts of attempting to possess marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia, along with a pair of drugrelated misdemeanor charges. Prosecutor Tracy Peters says Felch was given the probation on the first felony charge and that the conviction will be removed from his record if he successfully completes the probation. Felch was sentenced on the other three charges to the 39 days he had already spent in jail.

Recall election set for sheriff GRAFTON (AP) — A North Dakota sheriff who fired the deputy who unsuccessfully challenged him in last November’s election will face a recall vote. Walsh County Auditor Sharon Kinsala said she has verified that a citizen group’s recall petitions have more valid signatures than the required 1,236. The election is set for April 12. The recall effort started when Sheriff Lauren Wild fired longtime deputy Ron Nord the day after the Nov. 2 election. Wild says Nord spread lies about him during the campaign. Nord says he ran a clean campaign.

Hog numbers down in North Dakota FARGO (AP) — The Agriculture Department says the number of hogs is in North Dakota is at the lowest level since 1899. The North Dakota Agricultural Statistics Service says the state had 143,000 hogs as of Dec. 1, down 12,000 from the previous year. The agency says the decrease is due to a decline in breeding and market inventory hogs. North Dakota had 120,000 hogs in 1899. The record number of hogs was set in 1943 at 1.1 million.

Hecker in jail until sentencing MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that former auto magnate Denny Hecker will stay in jail until his sentencing on fraud charges. Hecker had asked to be released, saying he’s not a flight risk or a danger to society. But prosecutors disagreed, saying he poses an “economic danger” to the community. During a hearing Tuesday, Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis said Hecker would remain in custody. He’s been in jail since October. Hecker has pleaded guilty to two counts of fraud and conspiracy. Prosecutors say he duped Chrysler Financial out of more than $13 million in loans. Prosecutors will ask for the maximum 10-year sentence. Hecker is expected to be sentenced at the end of this month.

Gold boosts S.D. mine By KEVIN WOSTER For The Associated Press LEAD, S.D. — Wharf Resources (USA) Inc. wants to expand its surface-mining operations near Terry Peak in Lawrence County, a proposal that worries some nearby landowners and could force the relocation of more than 200 graves in the Terry Cemetery. Inspired by gold prices that have risen to more than $1,300 per ounce, Wharf is proposing an expansion that would affect 430 acres. Some of those acres are not far from the family cabin that Tom Hilt of Rapid City uses for skiing each winter. And Hilt wonders how the Wharf proposal will affect his view and his property prices. “My concern, first of all, is that the public knows what’s going on. I think at the present it’s not widely known,” Hilt said. “My perspective would be just what it might do to property values and whether those who use the mountain for skiing will be disappointed in what happens to the area.” Mike Cepak, natural re s o u rc e s e n g i n e e r i n g d i re c t o r f o r t h e s t a t e Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Pierre, said the rise in gold prices prompted the Wharf expansion. “It’s price-driven,” he said. “When they were doing their mining at Wharf during the last 10 years, the price of gold was much lower than now.” Cepak said that if the expansion plan were approved — a probability that is still months away — it would mine an area just north of the Barefoot Condominiums, close to Terry Peak. It would affect Green Mountain and Bald Mountain to the east. The existing mine operation at Foley Ridge, north of Terry Peak, went “right up to the ridge line. “This expansion will go a little farther south, over

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A 37-year-old Billings man on probation for his seventh DUI conviction has pleaded not guilty to another drunken-driving charge. Dale Howard Dickinson appeared in District Court on Monday and denied a felony DUI charge. His bail was set at $50,000. Dickinson was arrested Dec. 26 after authorities were tipped off about a possible drunk driver in the Heights area of Billings. Police say an officer approached Dickinson, who was sitting in the driver’s seat of a parked car at a convenience store. Court records say the man was arrested after he performed poorly on a field sobriety test and refused to provide a breath sample. Prosecutors say Dickinson was convicted of DUI in 2003, 2002, 2000, twice in 1996, 1994 and 1991.

“That obviously brings a lot of people and questions into the permitting process. They’d have to move the cemetery, some 240 graves, relocate them.” Wharf is the last largescale gold mine continuing to operate in the Black Hills. Last year, it handled 10.4 million tons of waste rock, processed 2.9 million tons of ore and produced 67,700 ounces of gold. It also produced 242,000 ounces of silver. Cepak said the price of gold has to be at $600 to $700 per ounce for a mining company to “even consider” a mining expansion in the area with production costs these days. The proposed project could extend the life of the Wharf mining operations to about 2020. Operations were other wise expected to cease in 2012 or 2013, he said. If Wharf is permitted to expand, it will need to put up bonds for reclamation, post-closure needs and cyanide spills. Those new bonds could be in addition to Wharf’s existing bond on existing operations — $15.5 million for reclamation, $9.9 million post closure and spill bond of $537,000. The bonds are intended to provide resources to pay for cleanup, reclamation and other needs if something goes wrong and the company doesn’t handle it. Cepak said work on the expansion could start late next fall if the application is approved without serious complications. “They could get some work in before next winter,” he said.

BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — A 7-year-old Billings boy is recovering from surgery in Butte after a New Year’s Eve sledding accident northeast of Whitehall. A.J. Wagner was injured when he hit a small pine tree and a 1-inch diameter branch penetrated his left buttock. His mother, Victoria Wagner, says the branch penetrated 6 inches into his body, reaching his abdomen. She said A.J. underwent two hours of surgery on Friday as doctors removed the branch. No vital organs were punctured.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Max Baucus says he plans to marry his girlfriend and former state director. Baucus says he and Melodee Hanes were engaged over Christmas in Helena. The 69-year-old veteran Democrat says he and Hanes are looking forward to getting married at home in Montana this summer. Baucus separated from his second wife, Wanda, in 2008 and they divorced in early 2009 after 25 years of marriage. The senator recommended Hanes for Montana’s U.S. attorney post in 2009, a move that later came under scrutiny considering their relationship. By then, Hanes had withdrawn her name from consideration for that post and instead and taken a job at the Justice Department in Washington D.C. Hanes is a former state prosecutor.

the ridge line,” Cepak said. Mining in that new area near Terry Peak area would not be allowed during the ski season, Cepak said. Cepak said the expansion would include the new ground and also the reopening of an area of the former Golden Reward mine, where some of the old pits at the base of Terry Peak would be expanded. Wharf took the first step in the application process for the expansion in September, submitting its notice of intent to mine and a request for determination of special, exceptional, critical or unique lands. If lands are so designated, it wouldn’t necessarily prevent mining that area. But it would require special provisions to protect the resources there. People have until Jan. 11 to nominate lands for the special or unique list. Information is available online at the DENR website ( m/wharfsupage1.aspx). After the special lands process is complete, Wharf will move on to the application to mine. Cepak said he expects that next step to come in “the next couple of months.” That would lead to a hearing before the regulatory panel, the state Board of Minerals and the Environment, by late summer or early fall, Cepak said. Among other disturbances likely to be caused by the expansion, a portion of S.D. Highway 473 could be moved. So could graves in the Terry Cemetery if that area were mined. “It’s possible they could mine that, too,” Cepak said.

Mont. looks to Taking new year’s aim at better health relocate bison By E. KIRSTEN PETERS

By MATT VOLZ Associated Press HELENA, Mont. — Montana wildlife officials are seeking approval to create a bison management plan and scope out sites that would be suitable to relocate dozens of bison from the genetically pure Yellowstone National Park herd. The goal is to find areas that could support a population of at least 50 bison now involved in a quarantine program testing for the spread of the disease brucellosis, said Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials. The animals would be temporarily relocated to an interim site for the five years they must remain under quarantine, then be permanently settled at either that site or in another part of Montana after a management plan is created that would include a hunt for the animals. “This is one species in the state we have really, in a management effort, ignored,” said Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Ron Aasheim said Tuesday. The bison in the Yellowstone herd are genetically pure, as opposed to others where the genes of cattle have been introduced, making them highly valued targets for conservation. There are 50 Yellowstone bison that can be relocated from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s quarantine facility north of Yellowstone park. Media mogul Ted Turner is keeping another 86 bison in the program on his Montana in exchange for 75 percent of the animals’ offspring. FWP plans to study temporary relocation sites, such as the Spotted Dog, Marias River and Beartooth wildlife management areas. The relocated bison would be contained in an area with a “wildlife-friendly fence” that would allow elk, deer and other wildlife to pass through, but not the bison. That measure is a requirement of the quarantine program, but FWP officials suggested that the bison may have to be contained beyond the five years of quarantine. “I doubt that we’ll ever get to a truly ‘free-ranging’ bison herd, but we want to see if we can find the right place where bison can roam behind a wildlife-friendly fence,” FWP director Joe Maurier said in a statement. Conservationists applauded the agency’s efforts to relocate Yellowstone bison to parts of Montana where the animals had been wiped out, but said the number of relocated bison should be increased and they should be allowed to

roam free after the quarantine period is up. Fencing should be the last alternative to managing bison, said Glenn Hockett, president of the Gallatin Wildlife Association. “We don’t propose putting elk on a (wildlife management area) and fencing them in, so why should you do it for bison? We need to find a landscape where we have a lot of buy-in from various landowners,” Hockett said. Keith Aune, who started the quarantine project when he ran the FWP bison program and now works for the Wildlife Conservation Society, said this genetically important group of bison merits bigger thinking to make sure the population is secure. “What you’ve got with the commission, they’re thinking small right now: What can we do with this certain set of animals?” Aune said. “It really comes down to human tolerance capacity. Will we tolerate a large landscape with free-ranging bison?” No, says the state’s ranchers. “Bottom line, our ranchers don’t support bison relocation,” said Errol Rice, executive vice president of the Montana Stockgrowers’ Association. “Our ranchers are just very fearful that bison restoration will result in the elimination of cattle grazing.” Rice said the state should focus first on eradicating brucellosis, which can cause pregnant bison, cattle and elk to abort their fetuses. Ranchers fear bison could spread the disease to their livestock, even those that have tested negative for it. “The stakes are pretty high for our family ranchers here in Montana,” Rice said. The agency will seek the blessing of the FWP commission to identify relocation sites and draft a management plan when the commission meets Jan. 13. Aasheim said the agency plans to take into consideration all comments on the proposal and there is no set timeline to begin relocating animals. “If there is a better alternative, we are listening,” he said. Meanwhile, National Park Service officials herded 23 mixed bison from Yellowstone Tuesday with the aim of releasing them into the adjacent Gallatin National Forest until spring. Park officials say they plan to release 25 bison after testing the animals for brucellosis and fitting them with monitors. In later years, they plan to allow first as many as 100 of the animals to roam the Gardiner Basin area.

Poor roads hamper farmers FARGO (AP) — Recent storms have made it difficult for North Dakota farmers and ranchers to haul grain, livestock and livestock feed. The Agriculture Department says in its latest farm and weather report that more than two-thirds of the roads in the state have drifted snow or ice. The average snow depth statewide as of Sunday was 18.3 inches, 7 inches deeper than last year at the same time. Snow cover protection for alfalfa and winter wheat is rated 99 percent adequate to excellent. Cattle conditions are rated 89 percent good to excellent. Hay and forage supplies are 98 percent adequate to surplus.

Dakotas’ premiums among lowest North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm says auto insurance premiums paid by drivers in the Dakotas remain among the lowest in the nation. Hamm cites a new report issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. He says in 2008, the average auto insurance premium in North Dakota was $644, compared with the national average of $903. Iowa was the least-expensive state, at an average of $616, followed by Wisconsin at $641. North Dakota was next on the least-expensive list, followed by South Dakota at $651. —Associated Press

Minn. cleans up corn mash spill CLAREMONT, Minn. (AP) — Employees have finished cleaning up after a fermentation tank collapsed in southern Minnesota, spilling hundreds of thousands of gallons of corn mash. The tank collapsed early Saturday at Al-Corn Clean Fuels in Claremont. Al-Corn CEO Randy Doyle said about 420,000 gallons of mash spilled, but he said most of it stayed on AlCorn land..

There’s next to nothing special about the Earth’s orbit around the sun right now. January, in that sense, is just another month in the natural world. But because we think of this time as the start of the next page on our calendars, January can be a great time to start fresh with some new personal Peters goals. And medical science will support you in making some real changes in your life. Besides, there’s nothing like the dry residue of old fruitcake on the kitchen counter to make healthrelated resolutions this time of year seem more appealing. Certainly in my own case, I know I could use some changes. If you’re in the mood to address your fitness and likely improve your health in the process, there’s a lot of good news. Medical science shows that moderate exercise benefits adults in a whole slew of ways. And we don’t need to pretend we’ll ever be triathletes to benefit a lot from a bit of reform.

What might you gain from exercise? Research has shown the list is long. You could help yourself avoid a whole range of maladies including diabetes, heart disease, depression and, of course, obesity. Even if you already have developed issues in those areas, research shows you can improve your lot. The bottom line is that medical science shows that while exercise may not be an actual fountain of youth, it’s one of the most potent aspects of our daily lives that influences our health. Some doctors think it’s actually the very most important part of what we do that influences longevity. One modest set of goals for physical activity comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Recommendations for adults state that adults can improve their health substantially by two and a half hours per week of what’s called moderate aerobic activity or one and a quarter hours of vigorous aerobic workouts. The moderate level of aerobic workouts includes brisk walking and even ballroom dancing. Vigorous activity can include jogging, swimming or jumping rope. If you’re a couch potato or have health problems,

the government warns you should check with your doctor before you start a workout schedule. But, on the other hand, if you are in good shape and are already doing what was just mentioned, you can get more extensive health benefits by doing more. You could aim for five hours a week of moderate activity or two and a half hours of vigorous workouts. Besides just doing more aerobics, you should consider adding some form of weight training twice a week to what you do. That could mean going to a gym, but it doesn’t have to. Heavy gardening work and doing exercises like you used to do in school (situps and push ups) all count in this category. For me, walking and swimming are easy enough and a real pleasure. I regularly do both, far more often than the government’s basic standards. I think that’s because there’s something about the mesmerizing effect of aerobics that appeals to my peculiar mind. But weight training is quite another matter. After all, it hurts! So that’s where I could reform, increasing how often I suffer through the weight machines at the gym.There also are those pesky details like flexibility, where some of us earn a

clear “F.” Only real diligence in 2011 is going to help me reach my toes again. If you’ve got kids, you also could think about their physical activity levels. Playing outdoors and doing sports rather than succumbing to full days spent with electronics can help set up a lifetime of healthy habits. If you think that some structure to your New Year’s resolution might help you or your kids, you could check out the President’s Challenge program at In just six weeks, if you stay on the fitness wagon that’s described, you’ll qualify for the active lifestyle award. That might give you a great start on changing habits in the New Year. Oh, yes. We also can make some real changes in our health by eating right. Luckily, that will have to be a subject for another column. (E. Kirsten Peters, a native of the rural Northwest, was trained as a geologist at Princeton and Harvard.

Man who spent $100 a week on lottery wins $1M ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A St. Cloud man who spent $100 a week for the last 12 years playing the Minnesota Lottery has finally won.

Daniel Goke’s ticket was one of two tickets drawn on New Year’s Day for the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle. He’ll take home more than $677,500 after state

and federal taxes. Goke, 54, estimates he’s spent more than $62,400 playing the lottery. He plans to pay off his house and truck, buy a boat and make

investments. Goke, an assistant manager at Walmart, says he’s cashed a winning ticket three other times. He’s won $100 and $250 twice.

No oral or written protests. Askvig moved to approve the request. Grossman seconded. All members voted Aye. Motion carried. 4. Hearing: Request for vacation of part of non-access line described as: easterly 16 feet 4 inches of non-access line along north side of Broadway Ave at intersection with 26th Street, on south side of Lot 1, Blk 1, Arizona Commercial Addition. No oral or written protests. Grossman moved to approve the request. Smith seconded. All members voted Aye. Motion carried. Askvig said he wants to bring compromise before Board regarding vacation request of part of non-access line along N 19th Street adjacent to Lot 1, Blk 1, North Valley Estates

2nd Addition. He has discussed this with Mel Bullinger, City Engineer, Charlie Whitman, City Attorney, and Dave Patience, Swenson and Hagen and he thinks he has found a solution for northern most access. He is proposing that instead of vacating that northern most access, offer a temporary easement for it that will continue until city gives at least one year’s notice of that easement being vacated. Easement would be for access area that currently intersects with Chandler Lane. 5. Continuation of hearing on request for vacation of part of non-access line along N 19th Street adjacent to Lot 1, Blk 1, North Valley Estates 2nd Addition. Persons appearing were: Dave Patience, Swenson & Hagen - Askvig’s proposal will resolve problem by putting something on public record; it is known at current time it couldn’t have been constructed any further south; there was concern from title company but closing for the property took place last week. Seminary asked Charlie Whitman, City Attorney, for direction on how to handle easement that was approved at December 14 Commission meeting. Mr. Whitman said we need to check with Kim Lee, Community Development Planning Manager, to make sure there are no conflicts and also Board needs to address vacation of non-access line on southern point and then deny one on most northern point. It would probably be styled as access easement in its current location and notwithstanding fact that there is a non-access line there that needs to be stated in body of agreement and is essentially callable by city on a one year notice. Askvig asked if we need to have following agenda item clarified by Ms. Lee before acting on current agenda item. Ms. Lee said when they did resolution to release access and utility easement over entire area, they did except out east 120 feet of roadway called Chandler Lane (northern most access point) so everything else will be released. So given proposal made by Askvig, resolution passed at December 14th meeting is sufficient.There will be two access and utility easements in place for easternmost portion of Chandler Lane until point that road gets moved and then they could vacate southernmost one at that point. Seminary asked if easement would need to be reconsidered and Ms. Lee answered no. Askvig moved to deny request for vacation along west side of N 19th Street, adjacent to Lot 1, Blk 1, North Valley Estates 2nd Addition, described as beginning at south line of 43rd Ave NE, from 198-feet to 238feet south. He clarified his motion is to deny so that Board can approve an access easement with conditions stated earlier by Mr. Whitman. Grossman seconded. All members voted Aye. Motion carried. Askvig moved to approve remaining items on resolution to vacate non-access line as follows: Petition heretofore described praying for the vacation along the west side of North 19th Street, adjacent to Lot 1, Blk 1, North Valley Estates 2nd Addition, described as beginning at the south line of 43rd Avenue NE, from 1727-feet to 1767feet south. The proposed non-access line vacation would allow for an access point, 40-feet wide, to match the location of the existing roadway approach, is in all things allowed and granted; That the City Administrator be and is hereby authorized to publish this resolution in the manner prescribed by law and file a transcript thereof for record in the office of the County Recorder, Burleigh County, North Dakota. Grossman seconded. All members voted Aye. Motion carried. Askvig moved to grant property owner an access easement for northernmost access point in its current location notwithstanding non-access line callable by city on a one year notice.

Addendum: Discussion of Morton Burleigh Bismarck Mandan (MBBM) Opportunity Development Committee involvement in regional texting ordinance. Seminary said at most recent MBBM meeting, he encouraged that Board it is not intent of MBBM because it’s meant to discuss economic development opportunities, improve efficiencies, save money, collaborate, etc. Some members thought group should evolve and expand their discussions to other areas. Grossman said he feels MBBM is meant to address economic development and infrastructure issues; it’s not super governing body. Mandan can pass their own texting ordinance if they wish to do so. Warford said MBBM wasn’t set up for that purpose; it was intended to look at economic development and efficiencies in government. Grossman moved to deny the request. Smith seconded.

Group: Wyo. law needs changing development,” she said. “But we now know from the practice and implementation that it needs improvement.” Wyoming should improve the law with a number of changes, the resource council said in a report released Tuesday. One suggested change is increasing the $2,000-perwell bond a company must post before drilling. That sum is “unrealistically low” to compensate landowners for damage, the group said in its “State of the Split Estate” report. “It’s ridiculously low. It’s not an impediment to bonding on and it’s not an incentive to negotiate,” Morrison said. The group also said the law could be improved by: ■ Allowing landowners to recover litigation costs if they went to court and prevailed; ■ Placing the burden of proof of good-faith negotiations with the petroleum company, not the landowner; ■ Not allowing companies onto private land until the landowner has received notification by certified mail that the company has posted bond; ■ Removing oversight of disputes from the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. Tom Doll, supervisor of the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, said, “This is a review of people who were disgruntled by the fact that they didn’t what they wanted out of it, apparently.” he said.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming ought to toughen up its law aimed at preventing conflicts when petroleum companies seek to drill for oil or gas on private property with or without the landowner’s permission, a landowner group says. The Petroleum Association of Wyoming says the law went into effect six years ago following input from both landowners and industry, and now the Powder River Basin Resource Council wants to undo those efforts. Surface land and any underlying minerals are legally separate in Wyoming under the concept of split estate. One result is landowners must allow an oil company to drill on their land if the company has obtained access to the mineral rights. The split-estate law, enacted in 2005, requires oil and gas companies to at least attempt good-faith negotiations with landowners. Also, the law allows landowners to sue in court to obtain compensation for damages. The law was a good first step when it was passed, Jill Morrison, an organizer for the Sheridan-based resource council, said Tuesday. “It’s definitely seriously needed and a very important issue because of the vast amount of split estate in this state with oil and gas

INDIAN BURRITO: Put the taste of India into a classic Mexican dish with this recipe for Curried Chicken and Rice Burritos.

India and Mexico meet in a burrito What’s a few cultures clashed in the name of good food? As in this chicken and rice burrito. It may sound and look Mexican, but the flavor is all Indian. For simplicity, we let the grocery store do most of the cooking for you. We start with a rotisserie chicken, the meat from which is tossed with coconut milk, curry powder and finely diced paneer (a type of Indian cheese). Then the mixture gets stuffed inside a flour tortilla with rice and briefly heated in the oven. It also could be done in the microwave. For condiments, you could go with mango chutney or mango salsa. Either way, a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek-style yogurt would be a fine finish. If you have trouble finding paneer, substitute feta or Gouda. Neither is similar to paneer in taste, but either would be delicious in this recipe.

Curried Chicken and Rice Burritos Start to finish: 30 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 8 21/4-pound rotisserie chicken 1 cup coconut milk 1 tablespoon curry powder 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 /2 teaspoon salt 1 /4 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 ounces paneer (a firm Indianstyle cheese), diced 1 medium red onion, diced 2 cups cooked basmati rice 8 large (burrito size) flour tortillas Mango salsa or mango chutney, to serve Heat the oven to 400 F. Spritz a large baking dish with cooking spray. Remove the meat from the chicken, discarding the bones and skin. Chop any large pieces of meat into bite-size pieces. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the chicken, paneer and onion, tossing to coat. Mix in the rice. Microwave the tortillas for about 10 seconds to make them more pliable. One at a time, place each tortilla flat on the counter. Spoon about 3/4 cup of the chicken mixture down the center of the tortilla. Fold both ends in, then roll up. Place each burrito, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. When all of the burritos are assembled, spritz the tops with cooking spray. Bake the burritos for 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated through. Serve with either mango salsa or mango chutney. — Associated Press

Art Ginsburg, known as Mr. Food, is shown during TV rehearsal in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Oct. 14. Ginsburg has spent the past 30 years showing people how to make quick easy meals.

He’s ooh, so good ... even after 30 years By SUZETTE LABOY Associated Press FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — It’s hard to imagine, but Art Ginsburg has spent 30 years quietly turning himself into an unlikely food celebrity, an icon with a multimillion dollar brand, all under the radar of the culinary elite. And he wouldn’t have it any other way. Ginsburg is Mr. Food. In classic white chef’s hat, he’s the guy who goes: “Ooh, it’s so good!” as he shows off quick and easy meals in 90-second segments on local TV shows around the country. He has 51 cookbooks, kitchen gadgets, electronics. He’s looking into a nutrition bar and an iPhone app. He’s friendly and fun — even off camera. “I could have been called Mr. Cucumber the rest of my life,” Ginsburg joked. “Or Mr. Pot and Pan. Mr. Food is better.” His company won’t disclose his worth but said the brand brings in millions every year, including revenue from a recipe-based website,, that gets 10,000 to 14,000 new subscribers each week. Not bad for a butcher-turned-caterer-turned-television chef who isn’t considered a big name among food enthusiasts. So why don’t foodies know Mr. Food? For one thing, Ginsburg regularly uses packaged products while top chefs bust a gut cooking from scratch with the best ingredients grown locally, said Tanya Steel, editor-inchief of “There is a huge roster of food celebrities out at this point in the marketplace. There’s just so many of them, and generally they are top chefs from the best restaurants,” she said. Secondly, Mr. Food’s syndicated segments are featured on local news shows, just like the local weather and sports. “That audience

Ginsburg reads fan mail at his office in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Oct. 13. (local news) has gotten smaller and older. Maybe that’s why he’s not as well known in regular food circles as perhaps he would like,” Steel said. In 2007, Ginsburg’s popularity peaked at 168 stations, but advertising dollars for local programming faltered. After a brief dip to just over 100, these days he’s back up to 125-plus stations around the nation. “They’re seeing that Mr. Food can be a profit center to the station because of Internet sponsorships, associations and sponsorships with Mr. Food,” said Howard Rosenthal, Ginsburg’s right hand man as vice president of Ginsburg Enterprises Inc., based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Most of Ginsburg’s shows are taped there, in his own studio. On a recent day, he taped 13 segments, not actually cooking on air but instead walking viewers through the steps

and revealing a finished dish at the end. He sticks to the basics and uses products anyone can get from the supermarket or find in their own cupboard. That and his folksy way makes it easy for fans to think he lives in their neighborhoods. “It seems like he’s been around for a really long time in my market,” said Lynn Hetzler, 48, of Ashton, Ill. “We also see chefs from the Chicago area and you wonder where in the heck these people live that they get food like this. But he (Mr. Food) cooks food that locals can cook and eat.” That hometown effect may be Art Ginsburg’s golden ticket. “He’s nationally recognized but locally embraced,” Rosenthal said. “Everybody thinks he’s local. So that trust and feeling of connecting with him, he’s like everyone’s favorite uncle.” Ginsburg grew up in the meat business, ran a catering company and started appearing on television in the early ‘70s on the show of a friend. His Mr. Food vignettes were syndicated in nine television markets by 1980. Now, he has close to 4 million daily viewers. He credits the mainstream food culture for continued success. “The Food Network certainly has helped instill interest in cooking. That’s for darn sure. I think that’s helped me, too,” said Ginsburg, who’s in his 70s. The main difference between him and the big names on television like Rachael Ray, with whom Ginsburg is friends, is that he considers himself a friend or neighbor of his fans. “They’re on the Food Network. They’re getting a lot of national publicity. And they’re getting big money,” he said. “And I’m quite comfortable, but let me tell you something. I was always the hometown guy. I don’t want to be the super celebrity. When you need bodyguards, that’s not my deal.”

Farfalle with Prosciutto, Cream Start to finish: 15 minutes Servings: 4 1 /2 pound farfalle pasta 5 tablespoons heavy cream 13/4 ounces prosciutto, sliced into 1 /2-inch strips Generous 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus extra to serve 2 egg yolks Salt and ground black pepper, to taste Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta to al dente (still barely firm at the center) according to package directions. While the pasta cooks, in a large bowl, combine the cream, prosciutto, Parmesan and egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper. Drain the farfalle and toss into the sauce. Serve with extra cheese. (Recipe from Jacob Kenedy and Caz Hildebrand’s “The Geometry of Pasta,” Quirk Books, 2010.) — Associated Press

Ginsburg and crew prepare for taping of his program in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Oct. 14.

Don’t give up turkey yet It’s both easy and healthy By JIM ROMANOFF For The Associated Press If by now you haven’t hit turkey fatigue, consider going back to this all-American bird for easy, speedy and healthy weeknight meals. And you don’t need to fuss with a whole bird to make it work. Turkey breast cutlets are thin slices of skinless meat that cook quickly and require almost no prep. Plus, they have only half a gram of fat per 4-ounce serving. Turkey breast cutlets can be purchased fresh or frozen, and range in size from large slices (from the main lobe of the breast) to narrow “tenders” cut from the breast tenderloin. These cutlets can be used in almost any recipe that calls for boneless, skinless chicken breasts, though you’ll need to reduce the cooking time and stick with moderate heat. They cook in as little as 2 to 3 minutes per side and can toughen and dry out quickly. You also can substitute turkey cutlets for veal in some recipes. For instance, make a quick turkey marsala by sauteing flour-dredged cutlets in a small amount of olive oil, then set them aside on a plate tented with foil. Next, brown some sliced mushrooms and chopped rosemary in the same pan and make a sauce by deglazing the pan with marsala wine and some chicken stock. Return the turkey cut-

Restaurants put menus on iPads By CARYN ROUSSEAU Associated Press CHICAGO — The bar is buzzing on a busy night at Chicago Cut steakhouse as regulars Keith and Peg Bragg sit at a high table scanning the wine list. Within seconds, they have all bottles under $40 at their fingertips using an iPad supplied by their server. “You can very quickly look through to see the price per bottle,” said Keith, a finance executive, as he scrolled through rows of selections. “You can read the wine tasting note, how long it has been aged.” The upscale eatery on the northern bank of the Chicago River has invested in 40 iPads at about $700 each for wine selection. Since April, when Apple debuted the tablet, the device is now in use as a full menu at upscale restaurants, hamburger eateries and quick-service chains like Au Bon Pain. Restaurateurs said that’s just the beginning. Chicago Cut partnered with a technology firm to create a custom app that looks like a virtual wine cellar. It lists the restaurant’s more than 750 wines, includes photos of bottles on wooden shelves and allows for searches based on variety, price or region of origin. Diners can also access information about a wine’s taste, composition and a Google map of the vineyard. “Eventually the bottle is going to spin around and you can read the back label,” said Chicago Cut managing partner Matt Moore. In the future, programmers could add video or let customers e-mail themselves the name of a new favorite wine. Moore’s partner, David Flom, said the iPads were a large investment, but they’re already showing returns. “I’ve already seen an increase of wine per customer of 20 percent,” Flom said. “I can’t say that the iPad commanded 100 percent, but I can say it commanded a significant portion of that.” Technology is becoming increasingly important to restaurants and tabletop ordering devices only stand to multiply, said Darren Tristano, executive vice president at the Chicago-based restaurant consulting firm Technomic. “It’s cool and trendy and kids love it,” he said. “It paves the way for other opportuni-

diners usually fill out pieces of paper with their orders at the cafes, but iPads have simplified the process. “One of our employees has an iPad with a menu loaded in it and they’ll take your order,” Frechette said. “You still see a menu board with all the information on it. We have handheld laminated menus for a reference, but all the paper pads are gone.” At 4Food in New York, where diners can build and name their own burgers, iPads are at eight kiosks with plans for as many as 30 devices, including Android and Blackberry platforms. Customers order and enter credit card information into the iPad to pay. Managing partner Adam Kidron said ordering food electronically will eventually be the norm. “You’ve just got to imagine that this is something that won’t just be considered to be a discretionary behavior,” Kidron said. “It will be a necessary behavior.” OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK

Chief executive Patrick Eldon, whose orderTALK Inc. helps set up online ordering for restaurants, said the real value of using iPads is to develop customer relationships. Digital surveys, collecting customer e-mails and offering frequent diner programs are all possible with the tablets, he said. “It’s about getting to know your customer in a way that you can’t get to know them from the waiter or waitress,” Eldon said. “You now have incredibly valuable data about customers, how often they eat, what a particular customer likes to order.” The tablets are arriving on the travel circuit, too. OTG Management has installed more than 200 iPads loaded with menus at gates in New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, allowing travelers to order salads and sandwiches while they wait for flights. A waiter brings the food and diners can pay via the iPad or in cash.

Husband’s ex seems to rule their marriage Dear Annie: I am a 24-year-old mother of a 9-month-old boy and a stepmother to three older children. My husband’s ex treats me like the third wheel. She walks into my house without knocking and goes through my stepchildren’s drawers and takes things. She won’t even look at me, let alone talk to me. To top it off, my husband refuses to stand up for me. He kisses the ground this woman walks on, even though she was the one who initiated the divorce. Whenever she calls, he drops everything and goes to her aid. When her car broke down, he gave her one of ours, and I ended up stranded at work. She constantly interrupts the few moments I have with my husband and son by calling and texting and asking him to do stuff. She rarely has her children with her, even though she gets paid a substantial amount of child support. And whatever she buys for them,


By PHILLIP ALDER This deal, which won for Debbie Rosenberg (North) and JoAnna Stansby (South) the best-bid award from the International Bridge Press Association last year, probably would not have been considered if it had occurred in a team event. Rosenberg and Stansby got to seven notrump, which scored 2,220. If they had played in seven spades, they would have received 2,210. In teams, those extra 10 points would have been worth nothing. But in a pair game they gave Rosenberg and Stansby a complete top. They received one matchpoint for every other pair sitting North-South in the event, the von Zedtwitz Life Master Pairs at the Summer North American Championships in New Orleans. Two no-trump was a game-forcing spade raise. Over West’s three-diamond ov e r c a l l , m o s t No r t h s would have jumped to four spades to announce a minimum opening. But North, liking her two aces, passed. Three hearts, four clubs and four diamonds were control-bids (cue-bids). Four no-trump was Roman Key Card Blackwood, the reply telling South that her partner had two aces and the spade king. Then came the master bid. Six clubs asked North to bid seven spades with third-round control (a doubleton or the queen) in clubs. When North denied that holding, South expected to have 13 tricks via five spades, two hearts, one diamond and five clubs. So she jumped to seven notrump. Cool!

Addiction hard to kick D E A R D R . G OT T: I took Tramadol for years for osteoarthritis pain and found if I were late for a dose, I would start getting flu-like symptoms. I was taking three 50-milligram doses a day. Finally, with my doctor’s help, I tapered off totally but began having awful nasal allergies and constant water running out of my head. One night, because I was sick and hurting, I took two of the leftover Tramadols and, lo and behold, by morning I felt terrific. I’m 66 years old and started taking one Tramadol a day to try to keep the allergies away, but I feel better if I take two of them. My doctor doesn’t seem concerned one way or the other, but I want to know why I cannot stop taking the drug. I cannot find anything on the subject anywhere. It doesn’t seem to help the pain much, but I cannot stop taking it. Help! DEAR READER: Tramadol is an opiate agonist, a narcotic-like pain reliever used to treat moderate-to-severe pain. In the United States, it is marketed as Ultram, Rybix, Ultracet containing acetaminophen or Ryzolt; in Canada, Ralivia; i n Me x i c o, Du ro d o r Retard and Trexol. The regular tablet is generally taken every four to six hours. The extendedrelease tablet should be taken once daily. Side effects can include blurred vision, lightheadedness, dizziness, uncontrollable s h a k i n g , d r ow s i n e s s , headache, nausea, vomit-


ing and constipation. Overdose may include chest tightness, wheezing, fever, itching, cough, s w e l l i n g o f t h e f a c e, tongue, lips or throat and cough. It can be habitforming. Dosing should be under the strict guidance of the prescribing physician. When discontinu e d , t h e Tr a m a d o l s h o u l d b e d e c re a s e d gradually. Sudden withdrawal can lead to insomnia, runny nose, paresthesias of the hands or feet, chills, nausea, hallucinations and more. Before beginning this medication, a physician should be advised if the user consumes alcohol or takes any medications containing alcohol, or has a drug addiction. Should this be the case, he or she will likely recommend another drug for pain control. The flu-like symptoms you experienced were not flu — they were from withdrawal. The water running out of your head is likely because you didn’t t a p e r t h e d o s a g e downward but attempted sudden withdrawal.

what it is. You might consider rubbing castor oil onto your affected joints, using over-the-counter Castiva, liquid pectin and purple grape juice, or glucosamine/chondroitin. Therapeutic exercise is important, too. Consider yoga, tai chi or water aerobics, which will keep your joints flexible while reducing your pain. Perhaps a visit to the physical-therapy department of your local hospital will be beneficial. Then, despite the fact that your doctor isn’t concerned, I recommend you make appointments with a rheumatologist to discuss treatment of your arthritis and a drug counselor for help with your addiction to Tramadol.

HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY ARIES (March 21-April 19). Tabulate your debts. Whether financial, psychic, emotional or karmic, this is a good day to review, assess and bring it down to the bottom line. Determine a total, and close the books. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It may take a bit of mental coaxing to get your mind flowing in the direction of good fortune. But when you really think about it, there will be much in this day to make you feel like the luckiest person on earth. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may feel that you lack the control you once had over a certain part of your life. Your professional life seems par ticularly w h i m s i c a l t h e s e d a y s. Assess what you do have control over, and go from there. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will soon make a difference in a scenario that is not so easily managed. The skills you need to be successful in this matter cannot be acquired overnight, so make a commitment to keep working at it for the long term. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll test yourself to see where you stand. The problem is that you are also the one scoring the results — and you would be hardpressed to find a harsher judge. Soften up! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t have to look at your watch to know you are hungry. Mentally scan your body and feel its messages. Tune yourself in to the silent language and natural rhythms at work within you.

make the future you more comfortable, healthy and happy, you will do the same for the present you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It would be dangerously unwise to drive while reading and eating a sandwich. In some way, you are trying to do this in your life — trying to simultaneously take on incompatible tasks. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Part of the appeal of travel is that you don’t know what to expect. You can choose your destination, but you can’t choose your adventure because much of it is out of your control. Plan your next trip. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You have been given a plan to work from, but think of it as a guide instead of a hard-and-fast set of laws. Trusting your judgment will be more fun than adhering to a strict schedule, blue plan or list of rules. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you really want is doable, but something has to give in order to make it all work. Assess the situation, and determine what you can drop. It won’t be hard to decide. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your body wants something different from that which your schedule currently allows. Perhaps it’s more sleep or more exercise. Pay attention to what your body wants, and reconfigure your schedule.

Tough man to beat Magicians’ Medler shuts out Demons By LOU BABIARZ Tribune Sports Editor

Minot 3, Bismarck 0

“It’s gotta be the shoes.” That’s the catch phrase Spike Lee popularized in the famous Nike commercial, grasping for the secret to Michael Jordan’s greatness. For Minot goalie Darren Medler, apparently it’s gotta be the pads. Medler got some new equipment this season, but after getting off to a rough start, he dug out his old gear Tuesday night — and looked like his old self. The two-time all-stater turned aside all 26 shots he faced as the Magicians shut out Bismarck 3-0. “The new pads weren’t doing it for me,” Medler said. “Since I was a twotime all-stater in those pads, I figured I may as well bring them back out. Everybody was bugging me about it, so I decided to bring them back out for the start of the new year.” Medler entered the game with a 3.45 goals against average — not horrible, but not what the Magicians have come to expect. “He hasn’t been playing well, not by his standards,” Minot coach Chad Burckhard said. “When he put

those old pads on tonight, the old Medler was back. He was solid all night long, and you can’t imagine the confidence that brings our bench. “... I don’t know how much of it’s mental and how much of it’s equipment,” Burckhard said. “But whatever it is, it’s working, so we won’t mess with it.” Medler looked — and felt — sharp as the Magicians knocked off the Demons for their third straight win. Medler said the benefit from the switch in pads was more than psychological. “It feels better,” he said. “I feel like I can move better. I just felt great. I felt good during practice the whole week, so I felt confident coming in.” The Demons came into the game one point ahead of the Magicians in second place in the West Region and riding a three-game winning streak. But Bismarck’s momentum came to a screeching halt against Medler. “I can’t wait until that kid graduates,” Bismarck coach Mike Peluso said Continued on 4D


Mandan’s Erron Collins looks for a teammate while being pressured by Minot’s Trevor Magnuson on Tuesday.

Minot magical in win Magicians hold Braves all game By STEVE THOMAS Bismarck Tribune


Bismarck’s Mike Hausauer puts a shot on goal against Minot’s Darren Medler in West Region play.

Abracadabra. The Minot Magicians visited the Mandan High gym, sprinkled around a little magic dust and — presto — stole a 53-51 boys basketball game on Tuesday. In truth, Minot coach Dean Winczewski thought the magic dust looked suspiciously like 36 minutes of hard-nosed half-court manto-man defense. “Those were two pretty good defensive teams bat-

tling each other,” Winczewski said. “We were fortunate at the end to make a play, and they had one rim out.” Trevor Magnuson, a 6foot-1 senior guard, made the play, tossing in a layup with :23 remaining in the game to snap a 51-all deadlock. The basket was set up by Jesse Crosby’s pass from the left wing. Mandan coach Jason Horner called a timeout and a turnover immediately ensued, Minot’s Kyle Gerding stealing the ball in the frontcourt. The Braves got a second chance when Isaiah Steinwand missed a pair of free throws with :06 to play. Seth Westby grabbed the second miss on the rebound and Erron Collins got off a 3pointer at the buzzer — in

Minot 53, Mandan 51 and out. Magnuson said his gamewinner was almost like taking candy from a baby. “We just wanted to get one shot. ... I got a screen, got open for a layup and was able to finish,” he said. Defense was the theme of Magnuson’s post-game commentary, however. “We had a few lapses where we didn’t hustle back on defense, but we held them to 51 points, which is pretty good,” Magnuson said. “And at the end we were

able to get the stops we needed to secure the win.” Eight players scored for Minot, but only one of them, 6-4 junior post Dustin Adams, reached double figures. Adams scored 12 points, 10 of them on five first-half field goals. Junior guard Devin Coyle and junior forward Aaron Janz popped in 14 and 12, respectively, to lead Mandan, now 1-2 in West Region play and 4-2 overall. Minot, which snapped a three-game Braves winning streak, improved to 2-2 and 4-3. Minot looked as though it might take command of the proceedings in the first half, opening a 19-12 lead on Magnuson’s 3-pointer. Continued on 4D

Buckeyes give Big Ten big bowl win over Razorbacks Ohio State holds off Arkansas The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Terrelle Pryor passed for 277 yards and two touchdowns and Solomon Thomas made

a huge interception with about 58 seconds left, preserving No. 6 Ohio State’s 3126 victory eighth-ranked Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night.

The Buckeyes (12-1) might want to send a thankyou note to the NCAA, which allowed Pryor, Thomas and three others to play even though they will have to serve five-game suspensions next season for selling memorabilia and getting dis-

counted tattoos. Four of those Buckeyes made huge plays. DeVier Posey caught a touchdown pass and Dan Herron ran for a score as Ohio State built a 31-13 lead. Arkansas (10-3) raced back and had a chance for

the win after a blocked punt turned over the ball at the Buckeyes 18 with 1:09 remaining. Ohio State 31, But Thomas surprised Arkansas 26 Ryan Mallett by dropping into coverage from his and Thomas picked off the defensive end position. Mallett never saw him pass to seal the win.

Unheralded LB Walden helping Green Bay’s ‘D’

Frazier says Minnesota will be ‘dramatically different’ in ’11 By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. — Erik Walden remained confident about his future in the NFL after he got cut, figuring his next chance would come as a special teams contributor. Even he didn’t imagine making big plays on defense to help send the Green Bay Packers to the playoffs. After being released by Miami on Sept. 28, Walden was at home working out when he got a call from

MINNEAPOLIS — The oldest player on the Minnesota Vikings this season not named Brett Favre was sitting in the locker room recently when he started assessing the team’s future. “They’ll need to rebuild around here,” defensive tackle Pat Williams said. “It’s going to be kind of rough.” Williams is one of several high-profile players

with expiring contracts on the team as the Vikings move forward with new head coach Leslie Frazier and try to rebound from a 6-10 debacle that was a far cry from a SuperBowl-or-bust campaign. “It will be dramatically different. We have a number of free agents,” Frazier said. “But that’s not any different than Continued on 4D

FARGO (AP) — Former North Dakota State head football coach Rocky Hager says he’s been contacted by MSU-Moorhead about that school’s head coaching vacancy, but he won’t apply because of timing and geography. Hager says that his wife is nearing retirement as a high school teacher in New Jersey. Dragons Athletic Director Doug Peters declined comment on whether he’s talked to Hager. The 59-year-old Hager has been away from the sidelines for more than a year. The North Dakota native was the head coach at Northeastern for six seasons until the Boston school dropped its football program after the 2009 season. Before that, Hager coached 10 seasons at NDSU, becoming the school’s winningest coach with a 91-25-1 record.

By JOSH DUBOW AP Sports Writer ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders informed coach Tom Cable on Tuesday that they will not bring him back as coach next season even though he led them to their best record in eight years this season. The Raiders announced their decision not to exercise a two-year, $5 million option on Cable’s contract for 2011 and ’12, two days after wrapping up an 8-8 season that gave Oakland its first non-losing record since winning the 2002 AFC championship. “Coach Cable was informed the club would not be exercising its option for the 2011 season, and that he’s free to seek employment elsewhere,” his agent, Don Yee, said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. “Teams already have shown interest in Tom.” The Raiders now begin their search for their sixth coach since Jon Gruden left for Tampa Bay following the 2001 season. Cable lasted longer than any of the previous five, with a 1727 record since being promoted from offensive line

coach to interim head coach early in 2008 season after Lane Kiffin was fired. Cable had wide support from his players, who credited him with helping make the team a contender in the AFC West this season after a run of seven straight years of at least 11 losses. But that was not enough to persuade owner Al Davis to bring him back for a third full season. The Raiders could have waited two weeks to make this decision but acted quickly. The move comes the same day the Raiders granted the San Francisco 49ers permission to interview offensive coordinator Hue Jackson for their vacant head coaching job. Davis brought Jackson in after last season to take over the play-calling duties from Cable. Led by a breakout season from running back Darren McFadden and big plays from rookie receiver Jacoby Ford, the Raiders finished sixth in the league in scoring with 410 points. That was the sixth-most points scored in a season in franchise history and more than doubled last year’s scoring output. Jackson will likely be a

leading contender for the job. Raiders senior executive John Herrera says the team has not talked to any candidates yet. The Raiders also could have interest in Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, who was a quarterbacks coach in Oakland from 2002-03 and is close with Davis. Harbaugh is being sought by the San Francisco 49ers, among other NFL teams. Cable has had a tenuous hold on the job ever since getting it when Kiffin was fired four games into the 2008 season. The Raiders took a month after that season before deciding to give Cable a two-year contract and then left the coach in limbo for weeks after last season. The 2009 season was marred by an investigation into whether he assaulted assistant Randy Hanson and allegations of a history of violence toward women. The Raiders made big strides to improve under Cable but fell short of making the postseason for an eighth straight season. Oakland became the first team since the 1970 merger to win all of its division games and not make the playoffs.

Bismarck Tribune ■

Blyleven hopes he gets next Hall call By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer NEW YORK — Unless the voters throw a real curve, Bert Blyleven should be a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame. Same for Roberto Alomar. When the results are released this afternoon, it might be even more interesting to see the numbers posted by Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire. Jeff Bagwell, too. Blyleven and Alomar both came within a few ballots in last year’s election by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America — no one who’s come so close has ever been shut out for good. Pat Gillick already is in the lineup for the induction ceremonies July 24 in Cooperstown, N.Y. The longtime executive was chosen last month by the Veterans Committee, and he enhanced his place with a trade for Alomar that helped bring World Series trophies to Toronto in 1992-93.

Gillick would gladly share the Hall podium with Alomar. “I think it would be tremendous. I think he’s well deserving. Probably he’s Blyleven the best second baseman that I’ve seen all-around, defensively and offensively, probably in the last 20 years,” Gillick said a few minutes after his election was announced. “I think that he certainly should be given strong consideration. I know he was very close last year, and so certainly, I hope that he would make it. It would be a thrill if he did make it and that we could both go in at the same time,” he said. Alomar drew 397 votes (73.7 percent) in his first try and fell eight short of the required 75 percent. Alomar won a record 10 Gold Gloves at second base,

was a 12-time All-Star and a career .300 hitter. Full of baseball smarts and grace, he’s also linked with one of the game’s most tawdry moments — he spit on umpire John Hirschbeck during an argument in 1996. The two later made up, and Hirschbeck has rooted for Alomar to make the Hall. This will be Blyleven’s 14th time on the ballot, leaving him one more try with the BBWAA electorate if he misses. The curveballer was just five votes shy of selection last year and drew 74.2 percent. Blyleven finished with 287 wins, 3,701 strikeouts, 60 shutouts and a pair of World Series rings. His numbers have gotten a boost in recent years by sabermetricians, who have found more modern ways to evaluate baseball statistics. Blyleven’s path toward the Hall has been a slow, steep one, having once drawn the backing of only 14.1 percent. He is trying to become the

first pure starting pitching to get chosen by the BBWAA since Nolan Ryan in 1999. Palmeiro is on the ballot for the first time. His numbers are impressive: He is joined by Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Eddie Murray as the lone players in history with more than 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. But blunting Palmeiro’s bid is a failed drug test that led to a Major League Baseball suspension in 2005. That penalty came several months after he wagged his finger at members of Congress and told them: “I have never used steroids. Period.” Palmeiro has mostly kept his distance from the baseball world since then. Recently, he reiterated the anabolic steroid that caused his positive test came in a vitamin vial given to him by teammate Miguel Tejada. “I hope the voters judge my career fairly and don’t l o o k a t o n e m i s t a k e ,” Palmeiro told

Tickets for Twins spring training on sale soon MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Tickets to the Minnesota Twins spring training games go on sale this Saturday and the best seat in the house is only $39, but the plane tickets to Florida are extra. Twins pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report on Feb. 17 to Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Fla., with the rest of the team scheduled to arrive on Feb. 22. The home opener is scheduled for Feb. 27 against the Boston Red Sox. The Grapefruit League schedule also includes games against the New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies. Tickets are available through the team’s web site, , the Target Field box office in Minneapolis and the ticket window at Hammond Stadium in Florida. McGwire has never gotten even 25 percent support in his four times on the ballot. This election will mark the first since the former home run champion admitted he took steroids and human growth hormone. “This has nothing to do with the Hall of Fame,” he told The Associated Press last January after another miss. “This has to do with me coming clean, getting it off my chest, and five years that I’ve held this in.” Bagwell’s situation is more tricky. Hi s c a re e r s t a t s a re

among the best for first basemen since World War II — .297 batting average, .408 onbase percentage and .540 slugging percentage. He hit 449 home runs, topped 1,500 RBIs and runs, ran the bases well and played hard. He was Rookie of the Year, NL MVP and a Gold Glove winner. To some, Bagwell’s candidacy is a referendum on the Steroids Era. Unlike Palmeiro, McGwire and other boppers in the 1990s and 2000s, Bagwell’s accomplishments were never tarnished by failed drug tests or public admissions.


Minot beats Mandan

Continued from 1D with a laugh. “It seems like every time he’s in this barn he does that.” Medler has had plenty of big games against Bismarck including a 55-save performance in a 2-1 overtime loss last season. But despite his stellar play, the Magicians hadn’t beaten the Demons at the VFW Sports Center since Feb. 17, 2006, going 0-5-1 in that span. The Demons had the edge in play at even strength, but the Magicians scored all three of their goals on the power play. Alex Schoenborn got the scoring started, taking Sam Ebert’s feed from behind the net and beating Bismarck goalie Brett Malkmus at 12:51. It was the ninth goal of the season for the freshman standout. “Alex is a big, strong, physical kid,” Burckhard said. “A lot of people don’t realize he’s a freshman when they take a look at him, with his size. He’s a smart kid, he’s a good hockey player, and the sky’s the limit for him. He’s going to be an outstanding player once he matures a little bit on the ice.” Less than two minutes later Weston Abrahamson doubled Minot’s lead with a nifty finish. Abrahamson walked in from the right corner and from close range managed to lift a backhand over Malkmus.

Then Mandan shut the Magicians down completely for 4:47 and cut the deficit to 19-18. The game was tied at 26 at halftime. Mandan got out of the chute quickly in the second half, opening a 38-30 gap as Coyle scored five quick points. Minot answered with a seven-point run — the last four by Kelvin Mackey — to cut the deficit to 38-37. Five lead changes and five ties ensued, leading up to Magnuson’s game-winner. Both Magnuson and Winczewski were pleased to leave Mandan High School with a league victory. “Our last two games in Grand Forks we were starting to play really well and we were able to continue our momentum on the road tonight,” Magnuson said. “Mandan is a really tough place to play. Winczewski agreed. “In our league if you beat an upper-level team on the road you’ve accomplished something,” the Minot coach said. “We were able to sneak one out.” Horner said he was more dismayed by the quality of Mandan’s play than the loss itself. Among the shortcomings were 10 missed free throws and 22 turnovers, many of them unforced. “That’s a lack of fundamentals, which is on me,”

Bismarck’s Ian Adams (26) leads the rush against Minot on Tuesday in a West Region contest. “Abe’s worked really hard for us the last two weeks and earned himself a little more playing time with the first unit power play,” Burckhard said. “I was happy to see him finish that, because he’s got some skill and he’s able to score.” M i n o t ’s p ow e r p l a y struck again with four minutes left in the second. Morgan Martelle stepped around a Bismarck defender and let fly from the high slot, picking the top right corner to make it 3-0. Medler made some tough stops, including a nice glove save on Brandon Shuler in the second. But his best came 34 seconds into the third. With a delayed penalty coming, Brandon Oliver appeared to score on a breakaway. But somehow

Medler made the save while flat on his back. “I can’t believe I got that one,” Medler said with a laugh. “He had me burnt so bad, and I just had to do something.” Peluso said his young team took a step back after the holiday layoff. “It’s frustrating from a coaching standpoint, because they’ve shown signs of being very, very good,” Peluso said. “Then they show signs like tonight where they’re very bad.” Minot 2 1 0 — 3 Bismarck 0 0 0 — 0 First period: 1.

Turning over Vikings most teams in the NFL. You go through an evolution almost every season it seems, with roster change.” Frazier insisted the Vikings are closing to returning to the NFL’s elite, and owner Zygi Wilf echoed the sentiment after Frazier was introduced Monday. Frazier and vice president for player personnel Rick Spielman will have to make a series of savvy moves for that to happen. Williams isn’t likely to be resigned, and three other starters in the front seven — defensive end Ray Edwards and linebackers Chad Greenway and Ben Leber — have deals that are coming due. So does wide receiver Sidney Rice. Underperforming, expensive players like wide receiver Bernard Berrian and starting safety Madieu Williams will be critically analyzed. Running back Adrian Peterson could be in line for a hefty contract extension, and tight end Visanthe Shiancoe will also enter the final year of his deal. Then there’s the unsettled quarterback situation. “The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, but it wasn’t pretty green on this side either,” said quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, whose contract is up, too. He added: “A fresh start might be good. Who knows? I’m just looking forward.” Berrian said he had a “great” conversation with Frazier on Monday and expressed optimism about bouncing back

Continued from 1D from the least productive season of his career. Edwards said Frazier’s hiring wouldn’t have a bearing on where he decides to play, and it’s possible the Vikings won’t pursue him whenever free agency begins in an offseason dominated by NFL labor negotiations and the possibility of a lost season. Greenway said his hope is to stay in Minnesota, but he acknowledged some anxiety from the uncertainty. “I have kids and a wife that wants to know where she’s going to live next year, and that’s all part of it too,” Greenway said. “Can’t do too much about it. Just going to stay patient.” Frazier will stress stronger participation in the team’s offseason programs. Several stars skipped some or all of them last year, with Peterson missing minicamp and Favre refusing to commit until mid-August. “We really want to be allinclusive. We want to be teamfirst,” Frazier said. “That means some guys are going to have to sacrifice things this offseason and be a part of the team.” Wide receiver Percy Harvin, one of the players who worked out on his own, said he’s on board with Frazier. Harvin said he’ll spend some time training with Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson this year but will participate in the offseason practices . That’s if they’re held and the owners don’t declare a lockout. Left tackle Bryant McKinnie

Jets: suit by massage therapists ‘without merit’ FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets say a lawsuit filed against them and Brett Favre by two massage therapists is “completely without merit,” and the team had not been aware of the accusations. Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole contend they were subjected to sexual harassment and job discrimination. They are seeking unspecified damages from Favre, the Jets and a team massage coordinator in a lawsuit filed Monday. In a statement Tuesday, the Jets say they are looking forward to defending themselves in court. sounded ready, too. He’s hired a personal trainer to follow him around the country — “even if I’m on vacation,” he said — and vowed to drop 20 pounds to get back to his college weight. That means he was pushing 360 pounds this season. Frazier didn’t offer any specifics about what, if any, schematic changes he’ll make, but he said he’ll evaluate all of the systems including the defense. Linebackers coach Fred Pagac made the game-day calls when Frazier took over, ordering more blitzes. The strategy was particularly effective in the win at Philadelphia. Some of the coaching staff could change, too. Frazier said he wants a run-first offense to feature Peterson more prominently.

Packers’ Erik Walden “He said, ‘Look, this is the situation, it’s an incredible opportunity,’ s o m y e ye s l i t u p,” Walden said. “I’m just trying to cash in and contribute, kind of make a name for myself. But at the same time, the bigger picture is helping us get to where we want to be, get these wins and get this train rolling.” Walden signed Oct. 27 and was pressed into action only four days later, making his Packers debut. The linebacker saved his best performance for Sunday, with two sacks and 11 total tackles as the Packers clinched a playoff berth with a 10-3 victory over the Chicago Bears. Going into a playoff game at Philadelphia on Sunday, Walden might be called on again for a team that is playing strong defense despite dealing with injuries. “He did it all,” cornerback Charles Woodson said. “I think he impressed a lot of people around here (Sunday). When you play at that high of a level, now we expect you to do it all the time. So we look for big things from him coming into these playoffs.” The Packers have 15 players on injured

reserve, including three defensive starters, and have had to make up for prolonged absences by several other significant players throughout the season. Walden is one of four players to start at right outside linebacker for the Packers this season. “It’s just nice to have someone in there to make some plays and take a little heat off me,” linebacker Clay Matthews said. “I told him he’s doing a fantastic job. He’s been working his butt off since he got here. It’s not easy to come in here halfway through the year. Now he’s starting for a playoff team and making sacks, making plays. More power to him.” Safety Charlie Peprah said the Packers won’t get anywhere without their role players. “It’s not going to be every game that Clay Matthews is going to do his thing,” Peprah said. “It’s not going to be every game Charles Woodson is going to do his thing or whatever. But if you’re out there, we’re going to need you to step up. And thank goodness he stepped up and came up big for us. He’s playing good ball.”

Continued from 1D Walden was taken out of Middle Tennessee State by Dallas in the sixth round of the 2008 draft and had played for Kansas City and Miami. He remembered something Bill Parcells told him with the Dolphins. “I was working out, trying to stay in shape and spending time with my son,” Walden said. “I was just waiting. The advice I got from Parcells (was), if you can play special teams, you’ll always have a job in this league. So I never doubted I’d get back on. It was just a matter of when and it being the right fit.” It’s too soon to say what Walden’s future might be in Green Bay, but coaches like what they see so far. “I can’t say enough about the young man and the way he’s performed, the way he’s worked,” head coach Mike McCarthy said. “The extra hours that you see him and (outside linebackers coach) Kevin Greene put in throughout the evenings upon his arrival here. We’ve done a very good job getting players ready to play in a short period of time. Our team is formed, this is who we are and we head into the playoffs.” ■ Bismarck Tribune

Tebow’s trial provided film for quarterback, next coach By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Tim Tebow’s three-week audition as Denver’s starting quarterback provided plenty of fodder for the debate over his worthiness as an NFL passer. More importantly, it delivered much-needed experience for the spirited but raw rookie, plenty of film for the next coaching staff to study and lots of energy and optimism for the team and i t s f a n s , w h o s u f f e re d through the Broncos’ worst season ever. “I think it was good for everybody,” chief operating officer Joe Ellis said. Well, maybe except for Kyle Orton, the prolific passer who lost his starting job last month when he suffered bruised ribs and two poor performances in a row, leaving his future up in the air. What Tebow lacked in polish he made up for in energy and emotion, rallying the Broncos to one fourthquarter comeback and coming within one tipped pass of another. His teammates, some of whom were skeptical at first, loved the passion he brought to the huddle. Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Lloyd, who initially supported Orton finishing out the season as the starter, said Tebow and the Broncos benefited from his promotion.

“It’s always good to get him in there and get experience, so that in the offseason he can visualize the speed of the game. He can visualize what teams are doing to him and to us, and how fast we run our routes, so he can visualize the correct timing in the offseason,” Lloyd said. “It’s always tough when you have a rookie quarterback who doesn’t play in his first season — he’s still a rookie in his second year. A guy who didn’t get any snaps is still a rookie and is still starting fresh.” Tebow finished his first season in the NFL with five TD tosses and six TD runs. He completed half of his 82 passes for 654 yards with three interceptions and ran 43 times for 227 yards. “It was invaluable experience for him,” Ellis said. “He went through three different types of games, had some ups, had some struggles. It’s just great experience for him. I think it’s exciting for the fans and for the organization to see what’s the potential there. He’s going to be successful in this league. He will be. He’ll will himself to be successful.” Every rookie goes through growing pains, but the microscope was especially tuned on Tebow, the former Florida star with two national titles and a Heisman Tro-

Associated Press

Denver’s Tim Tebow didn’t say whether he considers himself the incumbent starter. phy whom former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels stunningly selected in the first round of the draft. Tebow was the most intriguing pro prospect since Michael Vick, but he couldn’t beat out Orton last summer and his transformation from a combination college QB who ran as much as he threw into a prototypical pro passer remains a work in progress. Before McDaniels’ firing, Tebow’s snaps were limited to specialty packages like goal-line and short-yardage situations — and one pass. Now, he has 12 full quarters of action from which to draw upon when he resumes his NFL education under a

Standing by a pledge By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer RENTON, Wash. — From the time he first walked into the Seahawks’ headquarters, Pete Carroll pledged competition. It’s the crux of nearly everything he’s done since arriving in Seattle. It’s why the Seahawks have made 275 roster transactions since Carroll and general manager John Schneider took over a year ago, trading players like commodities, rarely hesitating when the opportunity came to make a change. Of the Seahawks’ 53-man roster for Saturday’s playoff game against New Orleans, only 21 players were there a year ago. His philosophy of change is why Carroll didn’t blink at the idea of starting a 10th different offensive line combination in a must-win season finale — even if there were still leaks everywhere — or the idea of going with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst in last Sunday’s 16-6 division-clinching win over St. Louis. So in his first season back in the NFL, Carroll’s competition mandate has produced a division winner, albeit one with the dubious distinction of being the first

sub.-500 division champs in league history and in a division where Seattle essentially won by default. Perhaps his toughest sell job of all since he took over could come this week, convincing his seven-win team it’s capable of upsetting the d e f e n d i n g Su p e r B ow l champion Saints in the first round of the NFC playoffs. “This is just a step in the process of getting a club to the mindset that it takes to prepare to perform like a champion and find the consistency that it takes to become that,” Carroll said. A year ago, the Seahawks were an old team trying to win a weak division and they collapsed into a five-win mess that cost Jim Mora his job. They relied on too many Carroll veterans who couldn’t produce what Seattle needed to take advantage of its spot in the NFC West. This season, the Seahawks were a team in transition, again trying to win the worst division in football but more focused on laying the groundwork for what’s ahead. That’s why veterans

new regime that will be led by Hall of Famer John Elway, the two-time Super Bowl champion who rejoins the team this week as its chief football executive. “It was good for him to get that playing time,” wide receiver Eddie Royal said, “to go out there and know what it feels like to compete at this level, to see the speed of the game, the speed of the line, the speed of the secondary because in practice you just don’t get that.” Tebow’s throws may be wobbly or off-target at times, he may have trouble taking the snap under center after working from the shotgun with the Gators and his footwork and mechanics may

need lots of work still but his enthusiasm and effervescence were infectious. “He never stopped playing hard, he never stopped being positive and that’s going to be really helpful to him,” Ellis said. “And all the other stuff, the mechanics and the throwing and the timing and the seeing the field, that’s just going to come with experience.” Tebow refused to say whether he considers himself the incumbent starter now that he finished out the season atop the depth chart, but he agreed the last three weeks were priceless. “I think it gives me confidence, it gives me different things to visualize and work

on,” he said. E r i c Studesville, who coached the team over the final month, said Tebow’s work ethic is unmatched, so any flaws Tebow in his game will get ironed out. “ He’ l l c o n t i n u e t o improve each and every day t h e m o re h e p l a y s,” Studesville said. One player who wasn’t sold on Tebow was Orton, who threw for 3,653 yards with 20 TDs and nine interceptions after signing a oneyear extension in training camp that could be worth $8.8 million next season. Orton said this was his best season and that he’s just now hitting his prime. Although he couldn’t throw passes for a while after injuring his ribs Dec. 12, Orton said he doesn’t believe he warranted a benching for the final three games and said that if he returns to Denver it should be as the starter. “They’re going to make a decision based as an organization on what they want to do,” Orton said. “But certainly with my play, I don’t feel like I opened the door for anybody.” The next coaching staff will determine if Tebow has displayed enough for the Broncos to get rid of Orton.

Manning looking to be magical By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

UP NEXT WHO: New Orleans vs. Seattle WHAT: NFC wild card playoffs WHEN: 3:30 p.m., Saturday WHERE: Qwest Field, Seattle ON: NBC television, KFYR radio like T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Deion Branch and Deon Grant were sent away and Carroll was OK relying on young and unproven players who showed the effort worthy of being given a chance in game settings. Ben Obomanu was thought to be a nice special teams player who could be a fourth or fifth option at wide receiver. He’ll be the starter at one wideout spot opposite one-time first-round bust Mike Williams come Saturday — the same Williams who signed a new three-year contract extension after developing into the Seahawks’ top receiver. “To get in and get a chance at the starting role in midseason is kind of unheard of. A lot of guys earn positions in training camp and no matter what happens that’s their spot for the whole season and you have to wait until the next season to prove yourself,” Obomanu said.

INDIANAPOLIS — Peyton Manning has heard it all this season. It’s a “down” year. Age is catching up to him. Something must have caused the worst slump of his pro career. Turns out, it was all image. While Manning’s quarterback rating did slip this season, he still completed more than 66 percent of his passes, still threw for 4,700 yards and still threw 33 touchdown passes. “The numbers speak for themselves, and I think anytime you have a guy throw for 4,700 yards and 33 touchdowns, any team would take that,” left tackle Charlie Johnson said. “It just shows how productive he’s been.” In some ways, Manning has been so good over the years that he’s a victim of his own success. Most want to compare Manning’s usually impeccable seasons against one another, and using that standard, Manning may never top his record-setting 2004 — 49 TD passes and 4,557 yards, numbers that would have gone even higher had Manning not left games early several times that year. This year, Manning’s

UP NEXT WHO: N.Y. Jets vs. Indianapolis WHAT: AFC wild card playoffs WHEN: 7 p.m., Saturday WHERE: Lucal Oil Field, Indianapolis ON: NBC, KFYR mediocre 91.9 passer rating could be evidence of a slide. But Manning has posted some of the best numbers of his career. He had careerhighs in attempts (679) and yards. His 33 TDs match his second-highest total, and it’s the second time he’s ever topped 30 TDs in back-toback seasons. Manning’s completion percentage (66.3) ranks above his career average of 64.9. And despite throwing 11 interceptions in three games this season, Manning threw 17 picks — one more than he did last season when he won his fourth MVP Award. “Somebody was asking ‘Did you all have a team meeting or did you try to help other guys?’” Manning said. “I was trying to help myself. I thought before I started trying to help other guys do their jobs, I needed

to be sure I’m doing my job. I didn’t think I was doing my job well enough. I was determined to play better.” S i n c e t h e n , h e ’s Manning thrown nine touchdowns, two interceptions and gone 4-0. What’s most impressive is how Manning has done it. He had virtually no running game for the first 12 weeks and lost All-Pro tight end Dallas Clark, his favorite outlet receiver, with a season-ending injury Oct. 17. Slot receiver Austin Collie has missed most of the last nine games, meaning Manning has had to rely on unheralded guys like Jacob Tamme and Blair White to do most of the damage. So Manning adapted. He threw shorter, quicker passes, which resulted in a noticeable drop in his average per attempt. But the overall results were the same. Manning led the Colts to their seventh AFC South title in eight years, tied the NFL record with a ninth straight playoff berth and set up a wild-card showdown with the Jets.

Ravens’ postseason lament: On the road yet again By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens won three more games than last year, went 7-1 at home and finished in a tie for the second-best record in the AFC. Those accomplishments netted them nothing more than another wild-card berth, which means the Ravens again face the daunting task of winning three straight away games to qualify for the Super Bowl. If there was a theme song for Baltimore in the playoffs,

it would be that familiar tune by Willie Nelson that includes the phrase: “Our way is on the road again.” This marks the third consecutive season under coach John Harbaugh that the Ravens have qualified as a wild-card team. Baltimore made it to the AFC title game two years ago before falling to Pittsburgh, and last year they upset New England in the first round before losing at Indianapolis. Baltimore won its lone Super Bowl title after the 2000 season as a wild-card entrant, but that postseason

began with a home game against Denver. The only way the Ravens could play at home this season would be in the AFC title game against the No. 6 seed New York Jets. Knowing that scenario is a long shot, the Ravens intend to make the most of the wild card they were dealt. “Our track record says we’ll play anybody at any time, anywhere,” linebacker Ray Lewis said. “Anytime you can pack up a great defense like that and take it on the road, you have a chance.” It’s not as if the Ravens haven’t been in this position.

“I think it’s a benefit, the fact that we’ve been through it two years in a row,” Harbaugh said. “We wanted like crazy to not go through it. We wanted that home field, but we didn’t get it done.” Although Baltimore finished tied with the Steelers atop the AFC North, Pittsburgh won the tiebreaker by virtue of a better record in the division. Thus, Pittsburgh gets a bye before a home game. The Ravens, meanwhile, must play Sunday in Kansas City against the AFC West champions, who won two

fewer games than Baltimore. “It’s kind of a peculiar thing that doesn’t happen very often,” Ravens cornerback Chris Carr said. “but everyone here should be proud to finish 12-4.” The Ravens have never faced the Chiefs in the playoffs, so at least this journey through the playoffs will feature a different first step. “We saw them the first game last year and haven’t seen them since,” Harbaugh said, referring to Baltimore’s win in September 2009. “We just have to study them over the next few days and really

said signs of economic growth weren’t enough to cut back its $600 billion bondbuying program, which is aimed at encouraging spending by keeping interest rates low. Fed officials said more time was needed before they would consider changing their plans. Automakers reported strong December and yearend sales figures. The Dow rose 20.43 points, or 0.2 percent, to


end the day at 11,691.18. The broader S&P 500 index dipped 1.69 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 1,270.20. The Nasdaq lost 10.27 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,681.25. Treasury prices were mixed after the Fed minutes were released. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves opposite its price, edged down to 3.33 percent from 3.34 percent late Monday.

Stock market rally slows NEW YORK (AP) — A rally that pushed stocks up nearly 7 percent in December took a pause Tuesday as traders shrugged off a pickup in factory orders and a sharp rise in monthly sales from General Motors and Ford. Stock indexes started out with gains but mostly fell throughout the day, even after a better-than-expected report on factory orders for November. The Dow Jones Industrial average of 30 large company shares wound up slightly higher. Ryan Detrick, a senior analyst at Schaeffer’s Investment Research, said investors were holding off after a sharp jump in stocks on Monday, the first trading day of 2011. “We had a big start to the year yesterday,” Detrick said. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 0.1 percent after rising 1.1 percent the day before. Investors also received minutes from the Federal Reserve’s last policy meeting in December. Fed officials

Bankruptcies down from last year RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The growth in bankruptcies around the country slowed significantly in 2010 from its breakneck pace in recent years, with about a dozen states recording a decline in filings from consumers and businesses, according to an Associated Press tally Tuesday. Filings collected from the nation’s 90 bankruptcy districts showed 113,000 bankruptcies in December, down 3 percent nationwide from the same month a year ago. That followed a similar yearover-year decline for the the month of October. It had been four years since an individual month showed such an improvement. In t o t a l , t h e n a t i o n recorded 1.55 million filings in 2010, an increase of 8 percent from 2009 and a far slower growth rate than the 32 percent jump recorded in the year before and the 33 percent jump the year before that. At the law firm Mayer & Newton in Knoxville, Tenn., staff members continue to work six days a week to handle the massive bankruptcy caseload. But filings there have leveled off, and partner John Newton said the firm

decided it did not need to replace an attorney that left about a year ago. He said the economy in Tennessee, while still challenging, appears to be more stable than other parts of the country. And he said many of the people who need relief from their debts have already gone through the bankruptcy process. “I think we’ve sort of turned the corner,” he said. Numbers indicated stark regional differences. Thirteen states recorded an annual decline, mainly in the South, with West Virginia leading the way with a 10 percent drop in cases. The West, however, indicated ongoing growth in filings, with numbers rising in places like Hawaii (22 percent), Utah (19 percent), California (19 percent) and Arizona (18 percent). North

D.C. helps push tax filing deadline to April 18 WASHINGTON (AP) — Taxpayers will get an extra three days to file their federal tax returns this year, and they can thank the nation’s capital for the extra time. The filing deadline is delayed because the District of Columbia will observe Emancipation Day on Friday, April 15. By law, local holidays in the nation’s capital impact tax deadlines the same way federal holidays would, the Internal Revenue Service said. Taxpayers will have until midnight Monday, April 18, to file their 2010 returns. Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Oct. 17 to file their returns. Emancipation Day marks the occasion when President Abraham Lincoln signed into law a bill ending slavery in the District of Columbia.

Dakota was up 4 percent. Tracy Compo of Tucson, Ariz., said her family’s financial troubles began about three years ago when her husband could no longer get overtime at work and mortgage payments became too costly. They tried unsuccessfully to get a mortgage modification before leaving the house to foreclosure. Since then, they’ve tried to regain financial strength by selling their possessions — jewelry, clothes and anything else that could help pay the bills — but credit card debt has continued piling up. In December, they filed for bankruptcy in hopes of getting a fresh start. “It’s very depressing,” said Compo, a 32-year-old mother of three. “It’s degrading — like you’ve just lost all sense of control. I hate it. I’m embarrassed by it.”
