U.S. says use less fluoride May be causing splotchy teeth By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer ATLANTA — In a remarkable turnabout, federal health officials say many Americans are now getting too much fluoride because of its presence not just in drinking water but in toothpaste, mouthwash and other products, and it’s causing splotches on children’s teeth and perhaps more serious problems. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced plans Friday to Continued on 7A

On the anniversary of the tragedy, Larson remembers the losses that Haitians faced — and the loss of her husband. Ben Larson, 25, was killed when the building he, Renee Larson and his cousin, Jonathan Larson, were staying in collapsed. While Renee and Jonathan managed to escape, Ben was trapped. Still, he was heard singing, “O Lamb of God you bear the sin of all the world away; eternal peace with God you made, God’s peace to us we pray.” Ben’s immense outpouring of faith in time of such fear has helped Larson through her grief. She and Ben were planning on ministering together, and she was uncertain whether or Continued on 7A

Lodging expense increase sought

North Dakota’s House Republican majority leader is seeking a raise for lawmakers’ housing allowance during the Legislature, saying the current $1,040 monthly limit forces some legislators to pay a share of their lodging costs. Rep. Al Carlson, R-Fargo, said the oil boom in western North Dakota has prompted more demand for Bismarck hotel rooms. Many won’t agree to house lawmakers for $34.67 a day for a 30-day month, he said. “Right now their selection is pretty limited,” Carlson said of legislators seeking hotel rooms. “There’s a number of them paying more than they should have to pay out of their pocket. You don’t work here for the money, but I don’t believe you should go backwards because of that.” Carlson’s proposal would raise the monthly stipend to $1,228, an increase of 18 percent. The amount is determined by a formula that uses a percentage of the nightly

North Dakota lodging rate set by the U.S. General Services Administration for traveling federal employees. The House’s Government and Veterans Affairs Committee has scheduled a hearing on the measure at 3 p.m. Thursday. The monthly amount is a maximum that taxpayers will pay for each legislator’s housing. If a lawmaker is staying in cheaper digs, he or she will be reimbursed only for what he or she pays. Mike Motschenbacher, president of the North Dakota Hospitality Association and assistant general manager of two Bismarck hotels, the Expressway Inn and the Expressway Inn & Suites, said he believed as many as half of Bismarck’s hotels would still decline to house lawmakers even with the proffered increase in reimbursement. A more realistic payment is $1,500 to $1,800, he said. The two Expressway hotels are owned by Rep. Mark Dosch, R-Bismarck. Motschenbacher said they limit the number of legislators they will house because of the low reimbursement. Fourteen legislators are staying at the hotels, which have 224 rooms between them. Customers who stay for months at a time can cost Continued on 7A

More young people in nursing homes By MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press SARASOTA, Fla. — Adam Martin doesn’t fit in here. No one else in this nursing home wears Air Jordans. No one else has stacks of music videos by 2Pac and Jay-Z. No one else is just 26. It’s no longer unusual to find a nursing home resident who is decades younger than his neighbor: About one in seven people now living in such facilities in the U.S. is under 65. But the growing phenomenon presents a host of challenges for nursing homes, while patients like Martin face staggering isolation. “It’s just a depressing place to live,” Martin says. “I’m stuck here. You don’t have no privacy at all. People die around you all the time. It starts to really get depressing because all you’re seeing is negative, negative, negative.” The number of under-65 nursing home residents has risen about 22 percent in the past eight years to about 203,000, according to an

analysis of statistics from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. That number has climbed as mental health facilities close and medical advances keep people alive after they’ve suffered traumatic injuries. Still, the overall percentage of nursing home residents 30 and younger is less than 1 percent. Martin was left a quadriplegic when he was accidentally shot in the neck last year by his stepbrother. He spent weeks hospitalized before being released to a different nursing home and eventually ended up in his current residence, the Sarasota Health and Rehabilitation Center. There are other residents who are well short of retirement age, but he is the youngest. The yellow calendar on the wall of Martin’s small end-of-the-hall room advertises activities such as arts and crafts. In the small common room down the hall, a worker draws a bingo ball and intones, “I-16. I-one-six.” As Martin maneuvers his motorized wheelchair

Men identified in disabled abuse case

Third package ignites

MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified two of the suspects recorded in sexual assaults of profoundly disabled women, officials said Friday. Los Angeles police officers recognized the men after detectives went public with artist sketches and photos of four men on Thursday, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Scott said. As many as 10 suspects could have been involved in the assaults. One of the suspects, Bert Hicks, was a worker at a Los Angeles care facility and had already been prosecuted by police for two felony sex counts and two abuse counts. He is currently imprisoned at Tehachapi State Prison and scheduled for release in 2012, Scott said. The videos show the men sexually assaulting physically and mentally disabled women, some of them in diapers.

French nationals are kidnapped NIAMEY, Niger (AP) — Two Westerners believed to be French nationals were kidnapped late Friday by armed men who burst into an upscale bar in Niger’s capital where they were sitting and forced the Westerners to leave with them. In September, five French citizens were seized from a uranium mining town in the country’s far north by an African offshoot of al-Qaida, and Niger has become a kidnapping hub for the terror cell. It was not possible to confirm whether the incident shortly before midnight Friday is by the group, known as Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb. If it is, it will mark the first time foreigners were taken by the al-Qaida franchise from the capital of an African country instead of a remote town or stretch of road, indicating the group is becoming bolder.

Linguists vote ‘app’ Word of the Year PITTSBURGH (AP) — The votes are in. The American Dialect Society chose “app” as its 2010 “Word of the Year.” The shortened slang term for a computer or smart phone application was picked by linguists as the word that best sums up the country’s preoccupation last year. “Nom” — a chat-, tweetand text-friendly syllable that connotes “yummy food” — was the runner-up. It derives from the Cookie Mo n s t e r c h a r a c t e r o n “Sesame Street” or, more accurately, the sound he makes as he devours cookies: “Nom, nom, nom, nom.” Friday’s vote came at a Pittsburgh hotel ballroom during the national conference of the Linguistic Society of America, an umbrella group that includes the Dialect Society.

WASHINGTON — House Republicans cleared a hurdle Friday in their first attempt to scrap President Barack Obama’s landmark health care overhaul, yet it was little more than a symbolic swipe at the law. The real action is in states, where Republicans are using federal courts and governors’ offices to lead the assault against Obama’s signature domestic achievement, a law aimed at covering nearly all Americans. In a post-election bow to tea partiers by the new GOP House majority, Republican lawmakers are undertaking an effort to repeal the health care law in full knowledge that the Democratic Senate will stop them from doing so. Republicans prevailed Friday in a 236-181 procedural vote, largely along party lines, that sets the

Washington Mayor Vincent Gray, right, and Chief of Police Cathy Lanier talk with the media near a postal sorting facility in Washington on Friday. voice can be heard in Washington-area Metro stations, reminding commuters to report suspicious behavior. The Maryland packages had a message railing against highway signs urging motorists to report suspicious activity by calling a tollfree number. The message read: “Report suspicious activity! Total Bull——! You have created a self fulfilling prophecy.” The state’s terrorism tip line is widely shown on overhead highway signs along with information about missing children. To the ire of some drivers, the signs added real-time traffic estimates to major highways in March. Some commuters complained drivers slowed to read the signs and backed up traffic. At Gov. Martin O’Mal-

ley’s request, the state studied the issue and removed the real-time postings from one congested area on the Capital Beltway. There are 113 signs statewide. The earlier packages, addressed to O’Malley and to Transportation Secretary Beverley Swaim-Staley, have been taken to the FBI lab in Quantico, Va., for forensic analysis, and Lanier said the D.C. package would also be sent there. The packages did not contain explosive material. Officials have declined to speculate on whether the incendiar y devices worked as intended or were supposed to cause more harm. Leo W. West, a retired FBI explosives expert in Virginia, said he didn’t have much information on the design of

the packages, but generally, if there’s no explosive, the devices aren’t meant to cause much destruction. “With an incendiary, you have a slower process involved,” he said. “It can burst into flames, but unless it’s something that’s a liquid that’s expelled ... you wouldn’t have that sort of immediate danger to the person.” At least initially, West said it seems the packages are meant to get the attention of officials. The Maryland mailings we re o p e n e d w i t h i n a 15-minute period Thursday at buildings 20 miles apart. Mailroom employees around the state were back at work Friday, and they had pictures of the packages and were advised to be vigilant about anything suspicious.

stage for the House to vote next week on the repeal. Shortly before the House vote, Republican governors representing 30 states opened up a new line of attack, potentially more successful. In a letter to Obama and congressional leaders, the governors complained that provisions of the health care law are restricting their ability to control Medicaid spending, raising the threat of devastating cuts to other critical programs, from education to law enforcement in a weak economy. It’s ammunition for critics trying to dismantle the overhaul piece by piece. Moreover, a federal judge in Florida is expected to rule shortly in a lawsuit brought by 20 states that challenges the law’s central requirement that most Americans carry health insurance. A judge in Virginia ruled it unconstitutional last month, while courts in two other cases have upheld it.

It’s e x p e c t e d t h a t t h e Supreme Court will ultimately have to resolve the issue. Obama made history last year when Congress finally passed the law after months of contentious debate, closing in on a goal that Democrats had pursued for generations. Republicans say they changed history by taking back the House in the midterm elections, partly on the strength of their pledge to tea party supporters and other conservatives to undo the divisive law, whose final costs and consequences remain largely unknown. Some Republicans hope to get enough momentum going to force Obama and the Democrats into an early capitulation. “If you have to do an amputation, get it over with,” Rep. Steve King, RIowa, a repeal leader, said after the House vote. “We need to get this showdown over so we can go on to other issues.” But Senate Democrats

say what King and other House Republicans think matters little, since they will block any repeal legislation on the other side of the Capitol. During last year’s election campaign, many Democrats sought cover when the health care law would come up. On the House floor, they unleashed a full-throated defense, accusing Republicans of trying to take away benefits that many people are already receiving, such as lower prescription costs for Medicare recipients, extended coverage for young adults on their parents’ plan and newly available insurance for people with serious medical problems. “Repeal this bill, and you’re going to find more Americans dying,” said Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif. Obama’s grassroots political operation, Organizing for America, sent out an e-mail requesting donations for a campaign against repeal.

Hitler-mocking dog enraged Nazis By KIRSTEN GRIESHABER Associated Press BERLIN — Newly discovered documents have revealed a bizarre footnote to the history of the Second World War: a Finnish mutt whose imitation of the Hitler salute enraged the Nazis so deeply that they started an obsessive campaign against the dog’s owner. Absurdly, a totalitarian state that dominated most of Europe was unable to do much about Jackie and his paw-raising parody of Germany’s Fuehrer.

House takes swipe at health law By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press

By JESSICA GRESKO and BEN NUCKOLS Associated Press WASHINGTON — A package addressed to the U.S. Homeland Security secretary ignited Friday at a postal facility, and authorities said it was similar to fiery parcels sent to Maryland officials a day earlier by someone complaining about the state’s terrorism tip line. The suspicious package w a s d i s c ov e re d by a n employee at the D.C. facility when it began popping and smoking, and it emitted “a brief flash of fire” before extinguishing itself, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. The details were very much like what Maryland authorities described Thursday after workers at state government buildings opened the book-sized packages. There, the workers’ fingers were singed. It’s not clear what ignited the package at the D.C. processing facility because the worker didn’t open it, Lanier said. No one was injured. Authorities were bracing for more packages to surface. “Right now we don’t have any other packages, but we’re not taking anything for granted,” Lanier said. The D.C. package was addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, according to a department official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of an ongoing investigation. The parcel ignited in northeast Washington about 2:45 p.m. Authorities wouldn’t say whether it contained a note.

Historians had not been aware of the episode before some 30 files containing parts of the correspondence and diplomatic cables were recently found by a researcher at the political archives of the German Foreign Office. Klaus Hillenbrand, an expert who has written several books on the Nazi period, was contacted by the histori-

an and examined all of the documents for an article to be published today in daily newspaper Die Tageszeitung. “Just months before the Nazis launched their attack on the Soviet Union, they had nothing better to do than to obsess about this dog,” Hillenbrand said. The dog, Jackie, was a mutt owned by Tor Borg, a businessman from the Finnish city of Tampere. Borg’s wife Josefine, a German citizen known for her anti-Nazi sentiments, dubbed the dog Hitler because of the strange way it raised its paw high in the air like Associated Press Germans greeting the Fuehrer with a Tor Borg and his dog Jackie. cry of “Heil Hitler!”

Sisters who will share kidney released By HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

PEARL, Miss. — Sisters Jamie and Gladys Scott left prison on Friday for the first time in 16 years, yelling, “We’re free,” and “God bless y’all,” as they pulled away in a silver SUV. That freedom, though, comes with an unusual condition: Gladys has one year to donate a kidney to her ailing sister. Now, with their life sentences for armed robbery suspended, their future is uncertain. Their children have grown up. Their family moved to Florida. They are using technology like cell phones for the first time. And questions abound: Who will pay for their medical care? Would Gladys’ conditional release hold up in court? And perhaps the biggest mystery ahead: Are they a compatible match for the kidney transplant? An afternoon news conference for the sisters in Jackson was attended by dozens of supporters. Many cheered. Some sang. A few cried. The sisters — Jamie wearing pink, Gladys wear(Deaths and state deaths ing purple — sat smiling at a table, their hands clasped on 5A.) before them as their attorney, Chokwe Lumumba, thanked a list of advocacy groups who worked for their release. “We just totally blessed. * We totally blessed,” Gladys *Some categories excluded Scott said. “It’s been a long, hard road, but we made it.”

Jamie, foreground, and Gladys Scott wave from a vehicle as they leave the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl, Miss., on Friday. Gladys said she learned about her release on television. “I just started screaming and hollering. I’m still screaming and hollering,” she said. Jamie said she looked forward to moving on her with her life and doubted at times she’d ever be free, but she leaned on her faith. “My sister been saying all day, ‘You don’t look well,’” she said. “I haven’t woke up. It’s like a dream.” Jamie said the reality of the situation will probably sink in when she sees her grown children, who were young kids when they went to prison. She said she would have a dialysis treatment this morning

in Florida. The sisters are moving to Pensacola in the Florida Panhandle to live with their mother. They hope to qualify for government-funded Medicaid insurance to pay for the transplant and for 38-year-old Jamie Scott’s dialysis, which officials said had cost Mississippi about $200,000 a year. A few doctors have expressed interest in performing the transplant, but there are no firm plans yet. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour agreed to release Jamie Scott because of her medical condition, but 36-year-old Gladys Scott must donate the kidney within one year as a condition of her release. The

women weren’t eligible for parole until 2014. The supporters who fought for the sisters’ release insisted that Jamie Scott may not live that long without a new kidney. Barbour has not directly answered questions from The Associated Press about whether he would send Gladys Scott back to prison if she changes her mind or if she is not a suitable donor for her sister. “All of the ‘What if’ questions are, at this point, purely hypothetical. We’ll deal with those situations if they actually happen,” Barbour said in a statement last week. However, the sisters’ attorney, Chokwe Lumumba, and Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, have said the governor’s office assured them the transplant condition of release would not be enforced. And the American Society of Transplantation has called on Barbour to base his decision to release Gladys Scott on legal merits — not her willingness to donate an organ. “The decision to donate an organ should be a truly selfless act, free from coercion and not conditioned on financial or any other material gain,” American Society of Transplantation president Dr. Maryl R. Johnson said Friday in a statement. Barbour, a two-term Republican, leaves office next January.

Ve r o n i c a K n o l l , t h e daughter of Joe and Anna Marie (Schmidt) Knoll, was born in Morton County on Oct. 25, 1923. She grew up and was educated in the Crown Butte area. She stayed at home with her parents, until she married Jack Zander on Jan. 18, 1944, at St. Vincent Church in Crown Butte. After their marriage, they lived in Mandan, where she worked for JC Penney and Mandan Drug. Veronica and Jack moved to Glendive, Mont., in 1968 until 1988, where she continued to work for Brenner Drug Store. In 1989, they moved back to Mandan to be closer to their family and relatives. Veronica was an avid bridge player and had a circle of friends that she cherished and will always remember their kindness throughout the years, most recently during her illness. She was very devoted to her faith, which she expressed by daily prayer and making every attempt to attend Sunday Mass. During her younger years, she enjoyed gardening and canning and developed a special recipe for peanut brittle. She made it during the holidays and had many people requesting pounds of her peanut brittle. While working in Mandan and Glendive, she had a collection of collectibles that she still has to this day. She lived an active life, loved her family, was always gracious and concerned that her appearance was elegant. Her sense of independence was most important to her, wanting to stay in her home as long as possible. When her health failed due to illness in December 2009, she moved to the Baptist Home. Left with memories of Veronica are her daughter, Jodene (Leo) Zachmeier, Mandan; her sons, Rande (Peggy) Zander, Mandan, and Kenneth Zander and Craig (Barb) Zander, both of Bismarck; her sister, Kay (Norm) Flom, Appleton, Wis.; her twin brother, Mike J. (Mary) Knoll, Bismarck; nine grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Jack, who died in 1998; and her brothers, Tony (Caroline) Knoll, George ( Josephine) Knoll, Peter (Kay) Knoll and Edward Knoll.

“If you think they have it so easy, then run for office! Besides, they don’t see any of this money. It is a straight pass-through to local businesses for lodging. Just in case you didn’t do the math, what they get now is roughly $35/day for a motel. Have you tried to get a motel in Bismarck for $35 a day? Good luck with that ... Average hotel costs are anywhere from $75-$100+/day, so having a legislator in your hotel at $35 a day isn’t doing anyone favors, versus renting out that room at double the cost.” — BabyT, on “Lodging expense boost sought for N.D. lawmakers,” posted Jan. 7

One New Year’s resolution that should be kept By BONNIE STAIGER Bismarck The ball has dropped and it’s a new year, when new resolutions and promises abound. After the gavel drops to mark the start of the 112th Congress, the new leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to take swift action to deliver on a promise made to the American people: Repeal the health care law. There are many reasons for repeal. The political practicality of doing so should be obvious — if the recent election results weren’t enough, Staiger December Rasmussen polls show a majority of voters favor repeal. There are also powerful fiscal and economic reasons widely agreed upon by economists on all sides. The path to economic recovery is already questionable and fragile, and should not be put at further risk because of this law. But one reason for repeal should mean more than others: This health care law is harmful to small business and small business wants it undone. Small business owners and their employees have already started to feel the

negative impacts of this law. Some have had their insurance plans canceled. Others are looking at changing plans because they will no longer be able to afford to meet new requirements. Worse than the impact small businesses already feel is the anticipation and uncertainty about what is yet to come. The law is so big and so complicated, many lawmakers who supported it have confessed they don’t even know what’s in it. How can a small business plan? While the law leaves small business riddled with

uncertainty about how these new costs will impact their ability to reinvest and grow their business, there are things that are certain for small business. Without a doubt, the health care law will increase costs, leave consumers with fewer choices and will bury businesses in new requirements. For example, there is a special tax on the types of insurance plans that small businesses buy, amounting to billions of dollars annually. There is a new IRS paperwork provision that requires small businesses to file a 1099 form for almost

every business transaction that totals $600 or more per year. There are other funnysounding taxes — like the suntan tax and the Cadillac tax — that aren’t funny to small business, instead nailing their bottom line. Worse, each funnysounding tax and new provision forces small businesses to spend more money on their insurance plans, tax compliance and accountants, and less on creating jobs and growing the economy. This isn’t the reform small businesses asked for, and it isn’t the reform that

will help them overcome their biggest health care problem: ever-increasing costs. In fact, this law has made things worse than before. In an economy like this, that is a poison pill for businesses trying to get themselves back in the black. Democrats hold up preexisting conditions and stricter rules on insurers as reasons for preserving this monstrosity. It’s true this law contains some worthwhile provisions supported by Americans, and there is no reason those wouldn’t be included in future, more responsible reform efforts. Using those few to rationalize a trillion-dollar program that taxpayers and businesses can’t afford makes little sense, though. It’s like buying a mansion because you like the door knobs. Small businesses have been clear all along. They wanted reform that lowered costs. This law didn’t do that. Instead, it added new taxes, fees and mandates. Small businesses are ready to work with the president and Congress to reduce costs and expand access to health care. However, they must first respond to the country’s unmistakable demand to repeal the current law. This is one New Year’s resolution that should be kept. (Bonnie Staiger is the North Dakota state director for the National Federation of Independent Business.)

What it means to be a North Dakotan When North Dakota was all farmers and ranchers and we worked in the cold until our checks burned, it shaped us a certain way. It helped create a template for what it meant to be a North Dakotan. That template continues to evolve because we are not all farmers and ranchers any more. Many of us moved to the city. There are North Dakotans who have never fed cows, hauled bales or done summer fallow. And while it’s true that we’ve kept many of the characteristics of our forefathers and foremothers, we’ve changed. Just like car and truck batteries have changed. When we were all farming and ranching, vehicle batteries often needed a


boost when temperatures fell below zero. No more. There are actually North Dakotans driving around without a set of jumper cables in the back, and they wouldn’t know how to put a set of chains on a car if they had to. One change that we’ve made was calculated. By nurture, necessity and persuasion, and at the hands of political and business leadership, North Dakotans have become entrepreneurs. No longer content to experience economics in

Our state’s economy is no longer just at the grain elevator

the lineup to the local grain elevator, we are turning our farm and ranch experience and knowledge into new products and services and selling them. We’ve become global. We’re flying cows out of Hector International Airport in Fargo for Kazakhstan. While this shift from rural to urban is pervasive and real, it doesn’t mean that North Dakotans are divorcing themselves from rural life or the outdoors. The goal of many a North Dakota urban dweller is to have enough grass to require a tractor — or, even better, enough acres for a hobby farm justifying the purchase of a skid loader. The number and diversity of internal combustion powered machines needed to clear sidewalk and driveways after a snow storm in Bismarck-Mandan is truly impressive. It is, I think, a fallback to our cattle feeding-field planting roots. And how many North

Dakotans do you know that save a few vacation days so they can go back to the farm in August to help with harvest? The farm and ranch are still a part of who we are — or may be, who we want to be. Coal has changed us as well. It’s made miners and power plant operators of us. Now, we commute. There was no such thing as a commute time for North Dakotans 30 years ago. Not so, now. There’s a steady stream of cars and vans between Bismarck-Mandan and the power plants when shifts change. And, frankly, we’ve been blended. In North Dakota, Catholics have married Lutherans and begot evangelical Christians. Norwegians have married Germans and at Christmas their children share lebkuchan and lefse. In earlier days in North Dakota, these actions would have been cause for being cast out of the family and

shunned. It’s hard to find pure Norwegian or German stock around these days. This changes who we are and how we work together (or not). When I grew up in a small town in North Dakota, there was “zero” diversity. Native Americans mostly lived in reservation towns, and there were few if any international refugees in the state. We were, when I was growing up, segregated — not officially, of course. The non-white minority was very, very small. That’s no longer the case. Kids growing up in North Dakota today, especially in the larger communities where a majority of us live, find themselves in a more diverse mix of students. It is, I think, a very good thing. Like it or not, we’re changing. (Ken Rogers’ column appears each Saturday. Contact him at ■ Bismarck Tribune

U.S. says use less fluoride Continued from 1A lower the recommended level of fluoride in drinking water for the first time in nearly 50 years, based on a fresh review of the science. The announcement is likely to renew the battle over fluoridation, even though the addition of fluoride to drinking water is considered one of the greatest public health successes of the 20th century. The U.S. prevalence of decay in at least one tooth among teens has declined from about 90 percent to 60 percent. The government first began urging municipal water systems to add fluoride in the early 1950s. Since then, it has been put in toothpaste and mouthwash. It is also in a lot of bottled water and in soda. Some kids even take fluoride supplements. Now, young children may be getting too much. “Like anything else, you can have too much of a good thing,” said Dr. Howard Pollick, a professor at the University of California, San Francisco’s dental school and spokesman for the American Dental Association.

One reason behind the change: About 2 out of 5 adolescents have tooth streaking or spottiness because of too much fluoride, a government study found recently. In extreme cases, teeth can be pitted by the mineral — though many cases are so mild only dentists notice it. The problem is generally considered cosmetic and not a reason for serious concern. The splotchy tooth condition, fluorosis, is unexpectedly common in youngsters ages 12 through 15 and appears to have grown more common since the 1980s, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But there are also growing worries about more serious dangers from fluoride. The Environmental Protection Agency released two new reviews of research on fluoride Friday. One of the studies found that prolonged, high intake of fluoride can increase the risk of brittle bones, fractures and crippling bone abnormalities. Critics of fluoridated water

seized on the proposed change Friday to renew their attacks on it — a battle that dates back to at least the Cold War 1950s, when it was denounced by some as a step toward Communism. Many activists nowadays don’t think fluoride is essential,

and they praised the government’s new steps. “Anybody who was antifluoride was considered crazy,” said Deborah Catrow, who successfully fought a ballot proposal in 2005 that would have added fluoride to drinking water in Springfield,

Ohio. “It’s amazing that people have been so convinced that this is an OK thing to do.” Dental and medical groups applauded the announcement. “This change is necessary because Americans have access to more sources of fluoride than they did when water fluoridation was first introduced,” Dr. O. Marion Burton, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said in a statement. The fluoridated water standard since 1962 has been a range of 0.7 parts per million for warmer climates where people used to drink more water to 1.2 parts per million in cooler regions. The new proposal from HHS would set the recommended level at just 0.7. Meanwhile, the EPA said it is reviewing whether to lower the maximum allowable level of fluoride in drinking water from the current 4 parts per million. “EPA’s new analysis will help us make sure that people benefit from tooth decay prevention while at the same time avoiding the unwanted

health effects from too much fluoride,” said Peter Silva, an EPA assistant administrator. Fluoride is a mineral that exists in water and soil. About 70 years ago, scientists discovered that people whose supplies naturally had more fluoride also had fewer cavities. In 1945, Grand Rapids, Mich., became the world’s first city to add fluoride to its drinking water. Six years later a study found a dramatic decline in tooth decay among children there, and the surgeon general endorsed water fluoridation. And in 1955, Procter & Gamble Co. marketed the first fluoride toothpaste, Crest, with the slogan “Look, Mom, no cavities!” But that same year, The New York Times called fluoridation of public water one of the country’s “fiercest controversies.” The story said some opponents called the campaign for fluoridation “the work of Communists who want to soften the brains of the American people.” The battles continue for a variety of reasons today.

Keeping the faith not she wanted to continue on with her calling as a pastor after his death. “To think about my future when it was so altered was nearly impossible at that time,” Larson said. Larson is the daughter of Dan and Joleen Splichal of Garrison. Although it was difficult, Larson made the decision to continue on the path to become a pastor. She is now serving the faith community at Heart River Lutheran Church in Mandan. Located on the North Dakota Youth Correctional Center campus, Heart River is unique and has had a huge influence on Larson’s life. “It gives me life to be with the youth at the Youth Correctional Center, even though their lives are very, very difficult, and (to) be with a group of people who are extremely dedicated to mission and excited about God, and what God is doing in the world and here in Bismarck-Mandan,” Larson said. The Rev. Peder Stenslie says that Larson has had a significant influence on the parish. “She has brought so much to our congregation — a unique global prospective that we haven’t had for years, if ever I guess,” Stenslie said. Though she is completely invested in the parish she serves, Larson also focuses on the bigger picture. “She’s interested in the work of the global church. We (Heart River), on the other hand, have been a very local centered congregation. We all were very excited about having that brought to our con-



In remembrance of the one-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake, Haiti advocates are asking people across the country to toll their bells in unison at 3:53 p.m. CST Wednesday for 35 seconds — the duration of the Haitian earthquake.

gregation,” Stenslie said. “One of her strengths might be what we call one of our weaknesses.” The relationship between Heart River and the youth at YCC is intricate, and Larson says Heart River would not exist without them. They participate in services by ushering, serving communion, playing music and reading lessons each Sunday. “It’s really powerful,” Larson said. Not initially what she had planned, serving Heart River has turned out to be what is right for her now. “I think that as human beings, we’d really like to think that we have control over our lives or the power of choice, and in some things we do, but generally in terms of what we do vocationally, it’s like if we do something else it just would feel wrong,” Larson said. Eventually, Larson plans to return to Haiti, but in the meantime she will continue to advocate for all that can be done to help the Haitians still suffering. “I’m waiting for the right time to go,” Larson said. “And maybe there isn’t a right time.

Left to right, Benjamin Larson, Renee Splichal Larson and Jonathan Larson. But right now, I know I’m supposed to be here.” Helping those who are suffering is only part of her journey. She also must face what happened to her family a year ago. “I feel like (Haiti) is a very large piece of my grief journey and some day I will face it,” Larson said. “And it will be scary, but I also need to go there again.” While there, Larson said, it is necessary for her to thank those who returned Ben’s body to her. The U.S. Embassy was in ruins, with no promises that Ben’s body could be returned to his family. “They (U.S. Embassy) said that they wouldn’t be able to dig Ben out for months if ever, and so that was very devastating to us. The Haitian people said, ‘We will dig Ben out,’ ” Larson said. Armed with hammers and chisels, the Haitian people — along with the Larsons’ friends Louis and Mytch

Dorviler, who organized the effort — dug for three days, risking their lives to return Ben’s body to his family. “They dug Ben out even before they dug some of their family members out that were buried,” Larson said. The immense love between the Haitians and the Larsons resulted from the relationships fostered during the two trips the Larsons took to Haiti. “Relationship is everything,” Larson said. “If you can’t have trust in a relationship, you don’t have anything.” The Larsons were invited to Haiti last January to help teach Lutheran theology. Though they had to cut the trip short because of the earthquake, her invitation to Haiti still stands. “Mission work in Haiti is extremely complex. We as Westerners have always made the mistake of going into a culture that’s different than

The same mindset applies when speaking of the rebuilding of Haiti. “Haitians are perfectly capable of building themselves. They don’t need Americans to go there and build things for them,” Larson said. “We can go and build with them, or we can empower them to build, but they don’t need us to come and build for them.” Monetary donations are significant in the rebuilding effort, but boosting the morale of the Haitians is important as well. “It is exciting and life-giving to be a part of, and I hope that as time goes on that people in the U.S. and all over the

More young people Martin exchanges muted hellos with older residents as he travels down the hall to smoke outside. His entire daily routine, from showering to eating to enjoying a cigarette, is dictated by the schedules of those on whom he relies for help. He usually wakes up late, then waits for an aide to shower him, dress him and return him to his wheelchair. He watches TV, goes to therapy five days a week and waits most days for his friend to bring him meals. He mostly keeps to himself, engaging in infrequent and superficial conversations with his elders. Martin’s parents are unable to care for him at home. His father is a truck driver who is constantly on the road, and his stepmother is sick with lupus. Medicaid pays his bills; it could take a lawsuit for him to get care outside a nursing home. Advocates who help young patients find alternatives to nursing homes say people are often surprised to learn there are so many in the facilities. About 15 per-

cent of nursing home residents are under 65. “When I tell people I try to get kids out of nursing homes, they have no idea,” says Katie Chandler, a social worker for the nonprofit Georgia Advocacy Office. Federal law requires states to provide alternatives to institutional care when possible, though its implementation varies from place to place. Navigating the system can require a knowledgeable advocate and, sometimes, litigation. Not all younger nursing home residents are there for good. Some nursing homes are seeing an increase in patients who come to recover there instead of in a hospital, because it is cheaper for their insurance company. Like Martin, many younger residents have suffered a traumatic injury. Others have neuromuscular diseases such as multiple sclerosis, or have suffered a stroke. Brent Kaderli, 26, of Baytown, Texas, became a

quadriplegic after a car accident in 2006. He hopes rehabilitation will help him gain enough strength to move into an assisted living facility and eventually, to an apartment with his girlfriend. He shares his nursing home room with an older man who suffers from dementia. It is not ideal, but because his parents’ home is not modified to accommodate his wheelchair, he thinks it’s the only option right now. “Just knowing that one day I will be better, I’m still hoping and praying for that. In the meantime, I think about my family and my friends, what I used to be able to do, and I stay sad a lot,” he says. “This is probably the best that I could have at this point.” The same generational tensions that exist outside nursing homes are inside them as well, and are sometimes exacerbated by the often close confines. Older residents complain about loud music and visitors, younger residents complain about living with

someone with dementia or b e i n g s e r v e d c re a m e d spinach. Many nursing homes try to house younger residents together, though in many cases their small numbers make that difficult. For young people who find themselves newly disabled, the psychological and social needs are often even more challenging than their physical demands. That presents a challenge for nursing homes that are used to serving people near the ends of their lives. At Bayshore Health Center in Duluth, Minn., 34 of the 160 residents are younger people, all living in private rooms in their own wing. The staff has found that subtle changes can improve their lives. Instead of bingo night, there are poker games and outings to nightclubs. For someone who stays up late watching a movie, breakfast can be served at 10 a.m., rather than 7 a.m. Pizza is offered in place of lasagna; Mountain Dew and Coke are poured instead of coffee and tea.

Continued from 1A Still, many younger residents sink into depression because of their physical limitations, their loneliness and their nursing home surroundings. “For them it’s a life sentence. When you’re 40 years old you know you’re never getting out. This is the way your life will be forever and ever. Amen,” says Diane Persson, a gerontologist who has written about the boom in younger nursing home residents. Martin fears that may be true for him. He used to look forward to joining the Army and ear ning a college degree in science or engineering. Now he simply looks forward to visits from his friend Paul Tuttle, who on this day brings him nachos he feeds him along with sips of water. “If I’m not here, he’s got no one his age to talk to about football or anything,” Tuttle says, wiping Martin’s face. Propped in his wheelchair, Martin says: “It makes you feel old. If that’s all you’re around, that’s what you become.”

Continued from 1A world can be invited to participate in that,” Larson said. Though they are suffering greatly, Larson says that the Haitians have “incredible faith.” Their ability to move forward through pain and remain faithful to God is astonishing. Larson also is remaining strong in her faith, which she simply defines as “trust in God.” “I think God’s strength comes to us in the form of the community of faith that keeps proclaiming God’s promises to us — always,” Larson said. Larson looks to this strength in times of doubt, and knows that Ben remained faithful until the moment he died. “I don’t know of anyone else who’s sung in their death, at such a scary time. And how incredible that is,” Larson said. “It helps us all as his family and I think other people who hear about the story, to know Ben’s witness to God’s love and Jesus for us all and for the world.” Even though her faith has been tested and she has questioned God about why this had to happen to her family and Haiti, she, like the Haitians, remains hopeful. “I don’t feel that faith is a static thing, or even a linear thing, but more of a — sometimes a roller coaster ride; and to know that, that’s OK,” Larson said. “I mean, when we really question God, it shows that we care.” (Danielle Rebel is a senior at Bismarck High School.

Lodging expense Continued from 1A less to serve because they do not have their rooms cleaned daily, Motschenbacher said. However, with a monthly rate of $1,228, “you’ve got to have almost no services” to make a profit, he said. “You can’t get any lower than that and afford to have them in here,” Motschenbacher said. “That’s why we have to limit them.” At least 10 lawmakers who inquired about staying at one of the motels were refused, he said. Some lawmakers elect to stay in rented apartments, condos or homes, some of which have been left by residents who traveled south for the winter. For apartments, the proposed $1,228 monthly would cover the bills. A fairly new two-bedroom apartment in a large building in Bismarck rents for about $550 to $800 monthly, with three-bedroom apartments going for $750 to $950, said Judy Sauter, marketing and research director for the BismarckMandan Development Association.

BPD squad car to be in toy form?

Energy Division questions By REBECCA BEITSCH Bismarck Tribune Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s proposed addition of an Energy Division to the Department of Commerce is already being called a “tough sell” by people on both sides of the issue after a Friday morning presentation to legislators on the House Appropriations Committee. Dalrymple made his original pitch for the new division in his

budget address, asking for two new full-time employees and about $600,000 for the division. It wouldn’t take away any regulatory power from any existing agencies but would instead serve as a coordinating division for the booming energy sector. Now it’s up to Department of Commerce interim Director Paul Govig to sell the idea to legislators. “I think there’s a greater benefit

than what’s being spent here,” Govig told legislators. He later said the division would help to take a big picture look at the industry and all the effects it’s having. “I think we can improve our ability to deal with the industry’s infrastructure needs in a proactive way rather than a reactive way,” Govig said. The idea was met with a little skepticism from lawmakers who were trying to get a better idea of


what exactly the division would do. Taking another approach, Rep. Eliot Glassheim, D-Grand Forks, asked, “What won’t happen if we don’t approve this division?” Glassheim said in a later interview that if Dalrymple thinks it’s important, he’s inclined to lend his support, especially if the current system is a drain on the overall department director. “They still have to make the case Continued on 6B

This week in session


By REBECCA BEITSCH Bismarck Tribune Of course, as a relative newbie, it’s always a good idea to get some perspective from someone who’s been around a while. I’m talking about the longest consecutive serving Republican legislator in the United States. I’m talking about Dave Nething. The Republican senator from Jamestown has been serving since 1966. 1966! According to Nething, it’s important to keep “consecutive” in the title, lest he be edged out by a close competitor. Kind of reminds me of former Tribune sports writer Abe Winter, who called himself “the only Polish-born Canadian Jew covering sports in North Dakota,” though he probably could’ve lost one adjective and still been one of a kind. Anyway, if you do the math, Nething’s been here for 22 sessions. Here’s to No. 23!

Fiscalicious Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., along with two other members of Congress will receive the 2011 “Fiscy” award to “honor elected officials for their fiscal leadership and to discuss existing fiscal challenges and proposed solutions.” Plus, they’re called the Fiscys. Conrad got the reward for his work as chairman of the Budget Committee and as a member of the bipartisan fiscal commission started by President Barack Obama.

Freshmen This week also was a big week for the two newest members of North Dakota’s congressional delegation. No longer will they be referred to as senator- and representative-elect. Both Sen. John Hoeven and Rep. Rick Berg were sworn in on Wednesday. Both are working out of temporary office space, but some things are becoming permanent. Berg was recently assigned to three subcommittees on the powerful Ways and Means Committee. He’ll be on subcommittees for Select Revenue Measures, Human Resources and Social Security. Hoeven is set to be on the Appropriations Committee and Energy Committee, but he won’t be getting his third committee assignment until later.

Always quotable Sen. Curtis Olafson, R-Edinburg, to Jeff Nelson of the Legislative Council as he explains Senate Bill 2051, which gives harsher penalties for acts that victimize those protected under hate crimes statutes: “What if someone punched me in the nose because ‘That Sen. Olafson is a loud obnoxious jerk, and I don’t like him?’ Would that be considered a hate crime?” “No, because ‘loud, obnoxious jerks’ are not a protected class.” “Well, that gives me great comfort.” (Reach reporter Rebecca Beitsch at 250-8255 or 223-8482 or

Closed roads take a toll on truckers

The kickoff week of the 80-day legislative session is known for going a little slower than the following ones, heavy on speeches and reports from different branches of government and agencies. Still, hearings were held on a number of bills. ■ Senate bills 2051 and 2052 caught a snag in the Senate Judiciary Committee after a number of religious organizations objected to the inclusion of sexual orientation in the bills designed to protect certain classes of people from hate speech, e i t h e r against them or property. Various religious groups said certain interpretations of the law could affect their own freedom of speech. The bills attempt to address the vandalism on several pieces of Native American art along the Missouri River. ■ Senate bills 2048 and 2050 received strong opposition from city officials, developers and the League of Cities. They tighten regulations on tax beneficial development tools known as tax increment finance districts and Renaissance zones. ■ In a presentation to the House Appropriations Committee, the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute has pegged the cost of roadwork in the West in the range of $900 million to $1.3 billion over 20 years. The Department of Transportation is asking for about $600 million is state funding for the 2011-13 biennium. Continued on 6B


Increased expenses, lost revenue By KAY KEMMET Bismarck Tribune The last days of 2010 brought closings of North Dakota’s major roads: Interstate 94 from Bismarck to Fargo and Interstate 29 from Canada to South Dakota. While the weather doesn’t affect the overall commerce of Bismarck much, it does affect some individual business owners such as daily trucking companies. “For trucking companies, their expenses don’t stop when the roads closed,” said Tom Balzer, North Dakota Motor Carriers Association executive vice president. “The impact of that lost revenue is pretty significant.” Those expenses include lodging and food for truckers and lost revenue for delayed shipments. “The catch-up revenue never seems to fill the revenue that was lost,” said Marlin Kling, president of Midwest Motor Express. During last week’s snow storm,

the Department of Transportation began closing down the roads on Thursday with I-94 from Jamestown to Fargo and I-29 from Grand Forks to the South Dakota border. On Friday night, I-94 from Bismarck to Jamestown, I-29 from Grand Forks to the Canadian border and U.S. Highway 2 also were closed. All the roads didn’t reopen until Sunday morning. DOT spokesperson Jamie Olson said the roads couldn’t be opened until they were cleared of snow, ice and abandoned vehicles. Truck drivers can’t drive extra hours to make up the lost time, Kling said. “The revenue you lose can never be caught up in the following days,” he said. The Bismarck-based trucking company has more than 5,000 shipments on the road across the Midwest each day, Kling said. At least one part of their route usualContinued on 6B

Suspect held in researcher’s death COOPERSTOWN (AP) — Authorities said a felony murder charge has been filed against Daniel Evan Wacht in the death of North Dakota State University researcher Kurt Johnson. The 30-year-old Wacht had been arrested earlier in the week on a probation violation from California. Griggs County authorities said at a press conference Friday that Johnson’s head was found in the basement of Wacht’s home in Cooperstown. Authorities said he had been shot and his body had not yet been found. The 54-year-old Johnson worked out of his Cooperstown home. He was last seen leaving a Cooperstown bar on New Year’s Eve and was reported missing on Tuesday.

Sheriff: Emergency landing was OK JAMESTOWN (AP) — Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser says an Oregon pilot did the right thing when he landed his small plane on an Interstate 94 exit ramp in North Dakota. Patrick William of Salem, Ore., was forced out of the air by poor visibility Thursday while flying his newly purchased 1941 Taylorcraft two-seater from Minneapolis to Oregon. He said that “flying is like driving a car. Sometimes you have to stop and wait for the weather to improve.” Kaiser saids local authorities notified the Federal Aviation Administration and the agency said there was no problem with the emergency landing. William said he’s a little surprised by all the attention. He said that with the weather North Dakota is known for, he’s surprised there aren’t more such incidents.

Courtroom plays host to kangaroo GRAND FORKS (AP) — North Dakota District Judge Joel Medd doesn’t run a kangaroo court, but he runs one that briefly played host to one of the marsupials. A petting zoo operator attended her husband’s hearing in Grand Forks on Thursday and brought her baby kangaroo with. The animal weighs about 5 pounds and gets carried in a pouch. Medd says he’s an animal lover and the kangaroo wasn’t a distraction. He says in his 35 years on the bench, he’s dealt with a lot worse, from screaming babies to screaming people. Medd says years ago, a man upset with one of his rulings dressed up in a kangaroo outfit to protest. He says it’s ironic that an actual kangaroo showed up in his courtroom.

More Devils Lake observers wanted DEVILS LAKE (AP) — The National Weather Service is seeking volunteer weather observers in the Devils Lake region to help climatologists fine-tune summer flood forecasts. Early forecasts say there is an equal chance the lake will rise 2½ feet higher than the record level of 1,452.1 feet above sea level reached last June. The weather service says more precipitation reports from volunteers could help to make more precise predictions. Hydrologist Mike Lukes says that weather service and state officials plan to measure snow depth and moisture content in the basin next week to prepare for the next spring flood outlook that’s to be released in late January. Devils Lake has risen nearly 30 feet and quadrupled in size since 1993 because of a series of wet years.

Hess plans $5.6B in capital spending By DAVID KOENIG AP Business Writer

AG: Bowdon City Council violated law Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has ordered the City Council in the central North Dakota town of Bowdon to provide minutes of meetings he says violated the state’s open meetings law. Stenehjem says a special council meeting in June held before a regularly scheduled meeting was not advertised, and a special meeting in August was advertised with the wrong date. The attorney general says a third council meeting, in June, that also was in dispute did not violate the law because a quorum of the council was not present. — Associated Press

Canola plant planned for Minot MINOT (AP) — A Canadian company plans to begin building a canola processing plant in Minot, after a study found the project likely would succeed. Toronto-based BioExx Specialty Proteins will process about 88,000 tons of canola oilseeds each year into protein products used by the food industry. Chief Financial Officer Chris Schnarr says the company will begin preparing the site in the spring. Plans are to have the plant operating by the middle of next year. The project cost earlier was estimated at about $50 million.

Pedestrian hit by car in Dickinson DICKINSON (AP) — A 20-year-old Dickinson woman is facing drug-related charges after allegedly striking a pedestrian with her car on a city street. The Highway Patrol says the woman was arrested Thursday afternoon on suspicion of aggravated reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and possessing marijuana. The 62-year-old Belfield man who was struck was taken to a Bismarck hospital with unspecified injuries.

RAY (AP) — Authorities have identified a man who died in a crash north of Ray, in northwest North Dakota. The Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Perry Larson of Ray died when his car rolled into the ditch on a county road Wednesday night. Larson was pronounced dead at a Tioga hospital.

Energy company capitalspending plans are influenced heavily by whether they’re drilling for oil — the price of which rose by nearly 25 percent from Labor Day through the end of December — or natural gas, which has fallen in price from a year ago. “Companies with oil opportunities are exploiting it as fast as they can, but gas companies are stuck

on production, $1.6 billion on developing current projects, and $900 million on exploration. More than half of the 2011 spending will be in the U.S. and more than a third of the total will be spent on so-called unconventional oil projects. In July, Hess had said it expected 2010 capital spending to finish at $5.5 billion.

Hess Corp. says it will devote $5.6 billion to capital spending this year, including exploration off the coast of Africa and continuing heavy investment in North Dakota oil fields that it bought last year. The New York-based company said Friday it plans to spend $3.1 billion

Teacher gets probation for thefts MINOT (AP) — A former Turtle Mountain Community College teacher accused of stealing laptop computers has been sentenced to two years of probation. Martin Henry of Rolla pleaded guilty in federal court to larceny. Authorities say he took 17 laptops and computer repair kits while working as a part-time instructor in the Belcourt college’s technology department in 2009. The 47-year-old Henry says in court documents that he pawned the computers to support a prescription drug habit and has since completed a successful treatment program. He says the computers were returned to the school. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ordered Henry to pay more than $4,500 in restitution.

ACROSS 1. BEDDING not wedding. “Before getting married,” the wedding is something a woman generally thinks about a lot, rather than something to which “some thought” is “given.” This phrase links up better with BEDDING, which “should be thought” about, especially if the couple is setting up a new home together.

4. WISE not rise. If your “advice” is “always good,” you will already be ranked high in their estimation,” making rise superfluous. 6. MEAL not zeal. A “MEAL can help give a necessary boost.” Zeal is, in itself, a “boost.” 7. SWELL not smell. The SWELL of the waves links up directly with the clue word “fisherman.” Smell is too vague and could refer to many odors that ordinary people might experience that are not directly linked to “a fisherman,” such as pollution, for example. 12. RANT not cant. “Sanctimonious” is redundant in regards to cant (defined as: “pious platitudes”). RANT is apt. 13. CRASH not trash. “Reading” material that is considered trash is usually in reference to material such as celebrity gossip, which may be mindless to some but hardly stressful. However, “reading” about a violent CRASH may well be disturbing and therefore, wise to “avoid.” 15. DOVE not dive. You could “get a photograph of a DOVE,” although it might be “difficult,” under certain circumstances. One can hardly take a still “photo” of a complete dive;

instead, it would be one phase of the dive. 18. LITTER not letter. The clue is unfinished in regards to letter; for instance, why would one specific “letter be overlooked”? Wrapping paper (e.g., LITTER) is frequently strewn about in the often-chaotic time when presents are being opened, and it might well “be overlooked.” DOWN 1. DANCER not danger. “Danger, if great,” would likely “cause a strong” physical as well as “emotional reaction.” A DANCER “could cause” some audience members to “react emotionally.” 3. NAVE not name. “Upon first” seeing a familiar “childhood sight” (i.e., the “church’s NAVE”) may well bring on feelings of “nostalgia.” But simply seeing the “church’s name” might not necessarily be an “overwhelming” experience, especially if she has seen the name in print or on the Internet, previous to “her return” visit. 5. SILVER not salver. SILVER embraces a whole range of antique pieces that might possibly “interest a collector.” An “old salver”

(e.g., tray) could be made of brass or tin, rendering it fairly worthless to “a collector.” 7. SCALDS not scolds. A person can “accidentally SCALD” someone, but if one scolds another, it is usually intentional. 8. LEAR not lead. The clue word “actor” matches up well with the masculine “role” of King LEAR. A lead “role” could be “well performed” by a male or female. 9. BIT not fit. The “applicant” might “hide” the fact “she suffers from” a “minor BIT of depression” but since a fit is defined as an acute attack, “minor” is inappropriate. 14. RAGE not race. To fly into a RAGE certainly “can be bad for the heart.” As for race, this would depend on whether you’re taking part in it or just watching the event. 16. VEIL not veal. Usually it’s a “woman” who “orders” a “wedding VEIL.” But a man might “order” or at least have a lot of say (i.e., being “picky”) in what meat, such as veal, is appropriate to serve at the “wedding.” 17. BEST not test. Grammatically speaking, a “film test” would be submitted to the “production company,” not the reverse. BEST is a good fit.

Readers comment on student who rubs herself Dear Annie: This is for “Concerned Teacher,” whose 9-year-old pupil rubs herself against her seat all day long. I am a school psychologist. If sexual abuse has been ruled out, she should simply treat it like any other publicly unacceptable behavior, the same way you would treat a child picking his nose in class. However, kids often engage in self-pleasure when anxious. So the first step should be to track the behavior and see if it happens when certain subjects are taught. The teacher and parents should talk to the child about a signal to let her know when she is doing it because she may not be aware of it at the time. Another point is to make sure she doesn’t have a learning or cognitive disability. Students with mild cognitive disabilities sometimes do not understand the social inappropriateness of this behavior. — A School Psych


Dear School Psych: Thank you for your expertise. We are grateful for the many readers who weighed in on this, most mentioning that the problem may not be masturbation at all. Read on: From California: I spent much of second grade doing the same thing. The cause was a chronic lowgrade yeast infection that made me constantly itchy. The rubbing made it feel better but caused inflammation, and it was a long time until I was treated properly and the behavior went away. Yeast infections can be triggered by


Infections and/or exposure to allergens can come and go, even over several years. A child may say nothing to her parents because she may not realize her symptoms are not normal, and she may have become accustomed to them. Texas: We had the same situation with a pupil at our school. The girl’s third grade teacher came up with a solution. She met with the student and her mother, and found a simple gesture the teacher could use to signal the student when the behavior was happening. In this case, the teacher tapped her own chin with her finger. It was so subtle, no one else was even aware of it, but the student knew to stop the behavior. When the child entered my fourth grade class, this information was passed on to me, and I only had to signal her once. Poughkeepsie, N.Y.: My daughter had chronic urinary tract infec-

tions that itched terribly. At that age, she may not be cleaning herself properly after using the bathroom. Antibiotics should clear it up. Florida: In special education, some of our students do not fully understand how to be appropriate in public. We explain, privately, what we want and then, in the classroom, remind her to “sit up” when she reverts to her “comfortable” position. It is not humiliating to be reminded to sit up. With boys who use their hands under the desk, we ask them to put their hands up on the table. This is done matter-of-factly, without any classroom disruption.

Chronic cough usually benign

By PHILLIP ALDER This deal occurred during a semifinal of last year’s Canadian National Team C h a m p i o n s h i p. It w a s defended perfectly by Piotr Klimowicz (West) and Gordon Campbell (East). Both Souths were in five clubs, the contract not being doubled at the other table. (In this auction, three diamonds was a help-suit game-try, which West was happy to accept with his maximum single raise and good diamond holding.) In the other room, West led a spade, East winning and shifting to a diamond. South won with dummy’s ace and had the communications to ruff two spades in the dummy and twice to lead hearts through West. Declarer lost only one spade and one heart. Klimowicz did better, leading a trump. (When your opponents sacrifice at a high level, a trump lead is almost always best.) South won in his hand and played a heart. West did well again, ducking. (Notice that if West had grabbed his ace, declarer could have got home by establishing a long diamond in the dummy using those heart winners as entries. Also, he would have to unblock his heart 10 under dummy’s king, then, later,

undetected food sensitivities and often go undiagnosed in both boys and girls. The resultant itching (and other people’s reactions) can cause lasting emotional anxiety. New York: Years ago, my little sister used to do the same thing. Our family doctor discovered that she had pinworms. Our entire family had to be treated, and our mother boiled all our sheets and undergarments to kill the pinworm eggs. Danbury, Conn.: That child should be examined by a dermatologist for a possible skin condition such as lichen simplex chronicus or lichen sclerosus. These are not uncommon in the genital region and can be treated with topical medications such as cortisone creams. Ohio: The girl may have an infection or allergic reaction (from soap, bubble baths, laundry detergents, certain foods, etc.) that is causing itching or discomfort.

play a heart to dummy’s eight. The curious may work out the exact sequence.) After winning with dummy’s heart king, South called for the spade three. Now it was Campbell’s turn to shine — he played low. This permitted his partner to win the trick and lead a second trump, killing the contract. Declarer had to lose two aces and either a second heart or a second spade.

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 19-year-old female and have had a nonproductive cough for 16 months without any other symptoms other than some slight drainage down the back of my throat. I have kept food and cough diaries and cannot find anything that triggers it. I cough when I sit, stand, laugh, after strenuous exercise and around smoke; it seems that I cough all the time. I have seen my family physician, a nurse practitioner, an ENT, his PA, a pulmonologist and his PA. I have been diagnosed with bronchitis, hiatal hernia, asthma and heartburn. None of the medication given for these diagnoses has worked. I’ve been on Symbicort, Spiriva, codeine, Prilosec, Zantac and one other that I can’t remember the name of. I had to take it for five days for what they thought was bronchitis. I had a chest X-ray done in July 2009 without abnormalities. There is nothing wrong with my vocal chords, either. At my last visit to the pulmonologist, I was told that I have irritated bronchitis and that I would have it for the rest of my life unless it miraculously went away. There is no treatment for it.


I cannot accept this diagnosis. This cough is truly annoying. I work at an elementary school and am currently attending nursing school. Coughing all the time makes people believe that I am sick, and nobody wants a nurse who is coughing constantly in a hospital. I am sure that you can understand my predicament. I am out of options. I don’t know what else to do or who else to see. Within the past two weeks, I have noticed that I have all of a sudden been getting heartburn. No acid comes up in my throat, and it usually never lasts for more than a few seconds, but it is a new symptom. Doctors have asked me in the past if I have had heartburn, but I never have up until now. Please help me, Dr. Gott. DEAR READER: Chronic cough can have many causes; most are benign. Up to 90 percent of all cases are caused by postnasal drip,

acid reflux or asthma. Postnasal drip is a common condition in which the sinuses drain down the back of the throat rather than from the nostrils. This can be associated with colds, the flu and various allergies. I suggest that you take a look at your environment to determine if there is something that may be causing this. Did you get a new pet or move? Did you start wearing a new perfume or using a new scented soap or shampoo? Did you begin using a new laundry detergent or fabric softener? You may want to talk to your physician about a trial course of an allergy medication. Over-the-counter options include Claritin, Zyrtec, Benadryl and various store brands with the same active ingredients. Prescription options include Nasonex, Flonase, Clarinex and more. These should dry up the drip and, if it is the cause, the cough as well. I am hesitant to believe that you have acid reflux or asthma because treatment failed to improve your cough; however, they may still be the culprits. Acid reflux can be helped through changes in diet as well as physical activity. Limit your intake of fatty, greasy foods, high-acid

foods and spicy foods. You may not have typical symptoms. Asthma may require daily preventive therapy such as a steroid inhaler in addition to a rescue inhaler for emergencies. Your new symptom of heartburn may be related to acid reflux, but it may also simply be the result of your constant coughing. Other possible, yet unlikely, causes include infection, lung disorders or cancers, and various medications. I urge you to undergo another chest X-ray, since it has been more than a year since your last. Your pulmonologist can then compare the two films to determine whether there are changes that might indicate a more insidious cause. If you are uncomfortable with your current physicians and their assistants, start fresh with another lung specialist or primary-care physician.Express your concerns about the cough, and be sure to bring all your medical records with you. The new physician can offer a new perspective and insight into your situation and may find something that the others missed.

Bismarck police arrest naked man

Prosecutors wait for homicide info Prosecutors are waiting on DNA analysis from the state crime laboratory in a Mandan homicide. Xavier Thompson, 22, was killed and Steve Voegele, 25, was injured outside a party at 200 Fifth Ave. N.E. at 2:05 a.m. Oct. 2. Both men had gunshot wounds. Police believe the shooting was preceded by a dispute over the whereabouts of an iPod that belonged to one of the owners of the home where the party was held. Mandan police have turned over much of the investigation to the Morton County State’s Attorney’s office, but the matter remains under investigation, Morton County State’s Attorney Allen Koppy said. He said he assumes the state crime laboratory is doing a thorough job in analyzing materials from the crime scene. He does not have a timetable for resolution in the case. “It could be a little bit yet,” he said. — Jenny Michael

Dorgan: Teaching, more in future Former North Dakota U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan says his future includes college teaching, lecturing, working with think tanks and helping to write two novels. Dorgan has written two nonfiction books on trade and finance. He says he’s writing a novel with another person and hopes to publish it at year’s end. He calls it an “eco-thriller” but he’s mum on details and the name of his co-author. Dorgan says he’ll lecture at Georgetown and the University of North Dakota. He’ll Dorgan work at a think tank on energy issues and serve as chairman of a new foundation to address the problems of American Indian youth. Dorgan represented North Dakota in the U.S. Senate and House for 30 years. He didn’t seek re-election last year and left the Senate this week. — Associated Press

Dispute going to Fargo commission FARGO (AP) — The Fargo City Commission will hear a challenge to a site for a residential youth treatment and education center during its Jan. 24 meeting. Fargo planners earlier rejected the challenge by landowner Fred Hector and Stanley Township, who say city staff made errors in determining whether the center was allowed in the area. Hector and the township have appealed to the City Commission. The Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch wants to build the center on Fargo’s south side. The organization gave up on another building site more than a year ago after considerable neighborhood protest.

Hwy. 83 crash victim identified MINOT (AP) — Authorities have identified a Belcourt woman killed in a pickup rollover on U.S. Highway 83. The Highway Patrol says 71-year-old Lorraine Crissler was driving the pickup when it went out of control on the icy highway and crashed about 10 miles south of Minot late Thursday morning. The patrol says Crissler’s husband, John, was riding in the pickup but was not hurt.

decades, but never in the quantities needed for 20 million or more automotive catalytic converters per year. Lithium may pose similar challenges for electric car batteries. The element has had industrial uses for years in everything from pharmaceuticals to lubricating greases to torpedo motors. But none of these applications use more than a fraction of what would be needed if electric cars using lithium-ion batteries reached a significant share of total output. There are alternatives. Most early hybrids used nickel-metal-hydride batteries. But lithium-based batteries have many advantages, including less weight. The Chevy Volt has this type of battery and other manufacturers are following. If electric or hybrid cars remain a novelty, there won’t be a problem. But if their popularity grows, where the lithium will come from becomes a question. The element is plentiful in several forms, but not easy to separate. Brine from alkali salt lakes in the Andes of Chile, Argentina and Bolivia is the best source, but building the plants to extract and purify lithium takes time. Companies are hesitant to make huge investments before knowing just what the demand will be. So if sales of these cars take off, lithium prices may rise rapidly and stay up for some years as production of the crucial raw material catches up with demand for the final product. This is a classic example of an increasing cost industry. (Economist Edward Lotterman teaches and writes in St. Paul, Minn.

Bismarck police arrested a naked man at a south Bismarck hotel after he allegedly spit on an officer trying to help him. Leonard Murphy, 40, was charged Friday with Class A misdemeanor contact by bodily fluids. Bismarck Police Sgt. Mark Buschena said officers were called to a south Bismarck hotel at 9:07 p.m. Thursday for a report of a domestic between a husband and wife. The couple from Bowman said they had been drinking and would go to bed. Officers were called back to the hotel at 10:21 p.m. for a report of a man outside in the area of the south Perkins wearing only a towel, Buschena said. He said officers, ambulance personnel and firefighters found the same man from the earlier domestic, identified as Murphy, naked in a stairway at the hotel. The emergency workers attempted to assist the man, who resisted efforts and had to be handcuffed, Buschena said. He said the man used vulgarities and spit on an officer while they were trying to tend to him, so he was arrested. — Jenny Michael

Today’s weather history 1953 - A severe icestorm in the northeastern U.S. produced up to four inches of ice in Pennsylvania, and two to three inches in southeastern New York State. In southern New England the ice coated a layer of snow up to 20 inches deep. The storm resulted in 31 deaths and 2.5 million dollars damage. (David Ludlum)

Energy Division Continued from 1B about how it will be an advantage to developing the energy industry. I’m not sure some of us are convinced yet,” Glassheim said. “If all it is is a cheerleading division, then I don’t think we need it because everybody knows development is happening and that brings significant economic gains.” Rep. Bob Martinson, R-Bismarck, said he and others are concerned with the price tag and adding two more employees to the state’s payroll. “I get the impression the feeling around here is that it’s going to be a tough sell. I’m not sure most people see the need for it,” Martinson said. “I just don’t think we need someone to say, ‘Hey, you should come drill for oil in North Dakota,’” Martinson added later. Govig said he thinks it’s proper for legislators to take a skeptical look at new agencies or divisions, but he sees the coordination aspect of the division as a selling point. “We’re not proposing to take anything away from anybody. It’s beneficial to commerce in that we’re a promotional agency, not regulatory. We’re here to promote and enhance,” Govig said.

He said he’s not sure where the car would be sold locally, since everything is in preliminary stages right now. He said the company distributes such toys nationally but does tend to focus such specialties in local markets. “They were pretty cool the last time somebody did

it,” he said, noting that they “seemed to go fast” in local stores. According to the GreenLight Collectibles’ website, the company included a North Dakota Highway Patrol 2008 Dodge Charger in a previous edition of its “Hot Pursuit” series of law enforcement vehicles. “I believe it provides a

Lincoln works liquor penalties By LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune “We’re not going to be North Dakota’s underage drinking capital,” said Lincoln City Council member Reed Unterseher. Frustrated by repeated failure of alcohol compliance checks in town, this week the council passed the first reading of a draft ordinance that penalizes businesses that sell alcohol to minors with scaled fines and liquor license suspensions. Council members decided a third underage sale in a year can shutter the business up to 30 days and mean a $1,500 fine, or pull the liquor license permanently. Cody Harrington, manager of the Tumbleweed Bar and Grill, found an earlier draft that called for an automatic seven-day suspension of a liquor license too extreme for a second offense.

Harrington said Lincoln’s record of failing alcohol compliance checks is a problem and is embarrassing to the city and its businesses. During alcohol compliance checks, minors attempt to buy alcohol from a business under the supervision of the Burleigh County Sheriff’s Office. “I don’t agree with the revocation of our liquor license over something that is in the hands of our waitress. I understand there has to be some penalties, but taking our liquor license away for a week — that would kill us,” Harrington said. An automatic 30-day revocation for a third offense, as outlined in the draft law, would close them, he said. Police Chief Jon Hale suggested he run his own own compliance checks to weed out workers who serve minors as some businesses in town do. He said staff

BPD squad car ... in toy form? While Bismarck police officers may not have their own action figures, their cars soon may be available as diecast toys for collectors and kids. Chief Keith Witt has asked the Bismarck City Commission to consider allowing GreenLight Collectibles to make a 1:64 model of a Bismarck Police Department Crown Victoria squad car. The item is on the consent agenda for Tuesday’s commission meeting. According to a letter from Witt to Assistant City Administrator Keith Hunke, letting the company replicate the squad car would be of no cost to the city. GreenLight Collectibles, an Indianapolis toy company, would create the necessary graphics for the replica using a digital photograph of one of the cars. A 1:64 replica is the size of a Hot Wheels or Matchbox car and is about 3 inches long. Witt wrote in the letter that a similar toy replica of a Bismarck police car was created approximately eight ye a r s a g o, b u t h e w a s

could be added on busier days to card all customers. Harrington said penalties should be geared toward the worker committing the crime. Council members reminded him his business holds the license, not the workers. City Attorney Ariston Johnson said Lincoln needs more definite penalties so it is consistent when future offenses occur. Council members agreed the ordinance should apply for both an officer’s patrol or compliance check. Council members said penalties should be acted on if the police chief finds probable cause that an illegal sale occurred. A hearing can held to ask a fine be reimbursed. Council member Steve Urlacher said fines will be automatic, but the council decides how long a license is revoked depending upon circumstances of the offense

and what actions a business took to train workers before a violation. The offenses are counted during the year a liquor license is issued. If the police chief determines there is probable cause, the draft liquor law now allows: ■ Automatic $500 fine and required training for a first offense. ■ $1,000 fine for a second offense. It requires public hearing with the city council; it can suspend a liquor license for up to seven days. ■ $1,500 fine for a third offense. The council can decide to suspend the license for up to 30 days. Council members may decide to revoke the license completely at this phase. Final approval of the liquor ordinance will be considered in February. (Reach reporter LeAnn Eckroth at 250-8264 or

U.S. rig count up by 6 this week HOUSTON (AP) — The number of rigs actively exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. increased by six this week to 1,700. Houston-based Baker Hughes Inc. on Friday reported that 914 rigs were exploring for gas and 777 for oil. Nine were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago, the count was 1,220. Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Colorado and Oklahoma each gained four rigs, Texas and Wy o m i n g a d d e d t w o apiece and North Dakota gained one. Louisiana lost eight rigs; Alaska and West Virginia each lost one. Rig counts in Arkansas, California, New Mexico and Pennsylvania were unchanged. The rig count peaked at 4,530 in 1981, the height of the oil boom. The record low of 488 was in 1999.

Closed roads Continued from 1B ly has some weather problem. “If you are going to truck in the northern part of the United States, it’s going to happen,” Balzer said. While the closed-down roads affect trucking companies, it doesn’t have a significant affect on overall Bismarck commerce, said Brian Ritter, the BismarckMandan Development Association’s director of business development. “I don’t know that the interstate being closed for a few days is really going to hurt us that bad,” Ritter said. But it does limit the traffic going through Bismarck-Mandan. The closed roads most likely affect taxable sales and retail the most, Ritter said. But in North Dakota, Kling said closed roads have larger implications because many of their shipments are time-sensitive. A closed road could mean that a remote factory doesn’t get a part they need and are forced to shut down, Kling said.

Good Shepherd pastors, the Revs. Craig Schweitzer, left, and Sara Akre, right, and church member Ilene Larson, center, hold an anniversary quilt made by six of the church quilters that will be raffled in the near future. The quilt is called “Harvest of Blessing” and was made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

50 years of faith Good Shepherd celebrates its 50th anniversary By KAREN HERZOG Bismarck Tribune Fifty years ago, when Good Shepherd was planted by the American Lutheran Church (now part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), its location was chosen because it was on the north edge of Bismarck and there was no Lutheran church in that area of town. Today, as Good Shepherd celebrates its 50th anniversary, Bismarck has galloped north, quadrupled in population, and the spot at Washington Street and Divide Avenue, just across the street from the YMCA, is firmly in the heart of town. Ilene Larson, who leads the coordinating committee for the church’s 50th anniversary celebration, remembers when Divide Avenue divided the town from the empty prairie north of it. There were 96 people at that first service, which took place in a small chapel on the same property in November 1960. But 1960 was still in the thick of the post-war baby boom and it took no more than two months for the congregation to be chartered in January 1961, fed by the young families living in starter homes in the surrounding neighborhoods. The present sanctuary was dedicated in 1967, with the newest addition coming in 1995. Good Shepherd still has a young demographic, said the Rev. Craig Schweitzer, a member of the church’s pastoral staff. Its median age is 38, nearly 20 years younger than the 57 that is the median age for the ELCA nationally, he said. Congregation-


A large stained glass window in the Lynne Center of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Bismarck depicts a scene reminiscent of the church’s name. al membership is around 4,000, about 1,700 households. The Rev. Robert Lynne was Good Shepherd’s longtime pastor — 27 years — and is now a retired bishop of the Western North Dakota ELCA Synod. Lynne, for whom the church’s Lynne Center

is named, will preach Sunday when Good Shepherd holds its allservices worship at the Bismarck Civic Center, starting at 10:30 a.m. This will be the church’s third anniversary event. In November, Lynne preached at the first event and actually found his first sermon from 50 years ago, Schweitzer said. The focus of the first celebration was on the past, and the liturgy was taken from the hymnal in use at the time, he said. The theme of that sermon was “mission and ministry,”

which was always an emphasis of Lynne’s, Larson said. In December, a ministry fair focused on the present time and its needs, Schweitzer said. The theme on Sunday will be “Blessed to Be a Blessing,” and will include elements from each of the six different worship services in use at Good Shepherd. Justin Binek will premiere an anthem on Sunday that he composed specifically for Good Shepherd’s anniversary, Schweitzer said. Holding one inclusive service on Sunday will allow all the different groups who attend Good Shepherd’s services to see each other, Larson said. Former pastors will return for the celebration and participate in it, including the Revs. Jeff Tengesdal, Marv Kormann and Laurie Natwick. A dinner will be served after the service, which will be the only weekend service scheduled for the church. Six master quilters have put together a quilt called “Harvest of Blessings,” for which raffle tickets have been sold since September, Schweitzer said. Quilters were Evelyn Buchfink, chairwoman; Jane Frank, Arlene Olson, Hilda Mae Lindvig, Diane Stange and Cori Quist. (Reach reporter Karen Herzog at 250-8267 or

A man walks into a bar ... to preach By PATRICK CONDON Associated Press TWO HARBORS, Minn. — It was a Sunday during Advent, and inside a small pub a few blocks up from the north shore of Lake Superior, 17 people gathered around four bar-top tables shoved into a ring. Betsy Nelson, the bar’s cook, lit two candles with a cigarette lighter as Addison Ho u l e s t ra p p e d o n a n acoustic guitar and sang a slightly off-key rendition of “We Three Kings.” Curt “Fish” Anderson sipped a beer as TVs overhead flickered with NFL pregame shows. “Father, thank you for this time we can share on Sunday morning with new f r i e n d s,” p ra ye d C h r i s Fletcher, an emergency medical technician, parttime bartender and seminary student who has led this service every Sunday morning at Dunnigan’s Pub & Grub since last summer. “We’re getting to know you, and getting to know each other better.” Spending Sunday mornings in a bar sounds like an activity for those running from God. For this small group in a watering hole in Tw i n H a r b o r s , a b o u t 160 miles northeast of Minneapolis, it’s about chasing God. It’s one unconventional place of worship around the country fostered by an e v a n g e l i c a l m ov e m e n t known as “the emerging church.” “I feel closer to God here than I do at a conventional church,” said Nelson, 56, a lifelong churchgoer who until recently could be found every Sunday morning in the pews at First Baptist Church nearby. “Jesus said we’re supposed to be a light to the world. What better place to do that than at a bar?” After the opening prayer, Fletcher read a brief passage from the Bible before opening the floor to a group discussion. Gene Shank, a 68-yearold retired police officer making his first visit after reading a notice Fletcher put in the local newspaper, confessed to a bit of discomfort. “I’m a reality person, and I’m finding a little too much established religion here to be honest,” Shank said. “I believe, I pray — but I don’t like structured religion.” Fletcher responded that, while he wants to be as informal as possible, the main goal is still “creating an open space for Jesus to come into our lives, then he does the transforming work.” He quickly adds that anyone who questions the way he’s running the service has come to the right place. “We’re all messed up,” he said. “We’re all screwed up some way.” Fletcher, a stocky, balding 43-year-old with a bristly goatee, is his own first example. The native of Sudbury, Ontario, grew up in the Worldwide Church of God, a small evangelical sect he described as “almost cultlike.” He left religion behind as a young man, but was drawn back as he was hitting 40 and experiencing a series of personal crises: the death of a close friend in an auto accident and the dissolution of his marriage. Last spring, Fletcher was accepted to Bethel Seminary in St. Paul; he now commutes 150 miles south one to two times a week for classes. Initially he intended to incorporate work as a chaplain into his job working with an ambulance crew, but as he began his seminary studies he found common ground with a recent wave of evangelical thinkers including Brian McLaren and

Associated Press

Chris Fletcher, right, leads a Sunday morning gathering known as “Bar Church” at Dunnigan’s North Shore Pub & Grub in Two Harbors, Minn., on Dec. 5. Shane Claiborne. McLaren and Claiborne have criticized some of Christianity’s more conservative traditions as they try to attract people disinterested in traditional Sunday attendance — in particular, younger people. “I don’t feel welcome in a regular church,” said Kayla Edwards, 25, who has been to most of Fletcher’s Sunday gatherings. “A lot of churches, I feel judged. Here, I feel welcome — it’s laid back, you can say what you want and no one will be disgusted.” One Saturday night a few months ago, Fletcher was having a drink at Dunnigan’s

when a stranger approached and asked to talk. She shared some personal problems and as Fletcher lent a sympathetic ear, and an idea was born. Six months later, Sunday attendance at what Fletcher calls “Bar Church” (“For those who are thirsty” reads a poster on the wall in Dunnigan’s) has grown to as many as 25 people. Lately, Fletcher said, strangers have regularly been approaching him around town in search of guidance, or just someone who will listen. “They’ll say, ‘you’re that bar pastor,’” Fletcher said. Fletcher wasn’t the first student of the emerging

church to hold a weekly service in a tavern, nightclub or other such establishment. Such gatherings have popped up around the country in recent years, as well as “home churches” that serve much the same purpose. While it might seem perverse, Fletcher said he likes the message it sends to worship Jesus in a place where alcohol is served. “I often find the people in the bar are a lot more authentic than people in the church,” Fletcher said. “If Jesus was in Two Harbors, he’d want to be with the people in the bar. He’d probably get kicked out of the church.”

Andy Kotelnicki is the new offensive coordinator for the Marauders.


It’s a two-horse race

Tetons to add 2 sports

Ready for a big challenge

Williston State will add hockey and softball

Kotelnicki is the Marauders’ new offensive coordinator

By CINDY PETERSON Bismarck Tribune

By CINDY PETERSON Bismarck Tribune Andy Kotelnicki is ready to roll up his sleeves and dig in to the University of Mary football program. After all, there is a lot of work to be done. Kotelnicki has been named the Marauders’ new offensive coordinator. He succeeds Chris Fisk, who resigned after the season to join his wife and children in Oregon. Fisk served as the Marauders’ offensive coordinator from 2007-10. Kotelnicki has already begun his duties on campus. “From an exter nal v i e w, y o u see Division II and NSIC, t h o s e things are very attractive,” said Kotelnicki, a Litchfield, Minn., native. “But it was the people and the commitment those people have here toward the student-athletes in their development.” Kotelnicki has ties to North Dakota, U-Mary athletic director Roger Thomas and U-Mar y head coach Myron Schulz. Kotelnicki’s brother, Josh, is the special teams coordinator and inside linebackers coach for the University of North Dakota. Continued on 4D

Willison State is adding two sports, men’s hockey and softball.


Century’s Meyer Bohn, left, and Mandan’s Taylor Hellman eye each other down in a 215-pound match Friday.

Bismarck holding slim lead on Sturgis By STEVE THOMAS Bismarck Tribune A funny thing happened on Bismarck’s romp to a blowout triumph in the Rotary Wrestling Tournament. It faded away. Bismarck led by 39.5 points going into the final round of Friday’s action at the Civic Center. But the Demons ended the day with the hot breath of Sturgis, S.D., on their neck. Sturgis, spurred by a perfect 5-0 showing in the semifinals, closed the gap to 168152.5 with a long way to go. Rapid City, S.D., Stevens with 123.5 points, Turtle Mountain with 109.5 and Rapid City Central with 98.5 complete the top five.

Action resumes today at 1 p.m. with two rounds of wrestlebacks and the trophy matches on the schedule. The finals are slated for 3 p.m. Only 215-pounder Clint Wilson among Sturgis’ five semifinal winners was seeded No. 1. Yet Scoopers coach Steve Keszler seemed only moderately surprised at the turn of events. “You’re never sure of anything,” Keszler said. “... I thought we performed well that last round. We went 8for-9, and the ninth one was a heartbreaker. Hopefully we’ll carry some of that momentum into Saturday.” In addition to the 5-0 effort in the semis, Sturgis won three of four matches in

UP NEXT Rotary wrestling tournament — Day 2: 1 p.m. at Civic Center the fourth round of wrestlebacks, which were running concurrently. Along with its five finalists, Sturgis has three men alive in the wrestlebacks — two No. 7 seeds and a No. 6 seed. Bismarck will send 130pounder Ryan Blees, 145pounder Drew Spaulding and 285-pounder Nick Nelson into today’s finals. The Demons have seven wrestlers going in the wrestlebacks, including a No. 2 seed, a No. 4, a No. 5, a No. 7 and two No. 8s.

“We have three who lost in the semifinals, so they’re guaranteed sixth place,” BHS co-coach Scott Knowlen said. The task before the Demons is to score enough consolation points to blunt the edge Sturgis has in the finals. “I like our potential. ... We’ve got seven guys alive in the bottom, but we also know four of them weren’t seeded or were seeded seventh or eighth,” Knowlen said. Knowlen is hoping his wrestleback power turns on the juice today. “Some of them could knock off people they may have lost to a month ago,” he said. Continued on 4D

Williston State is hoping to expand its on-campus enrollment. One of the best ways to bring students on campus is to add a couple of sports. Williston State has made the decision to expand by adding women’s softball and men’s ice hockey. If WSC can raise the funds, the two sports will be added for the 2011-12 school year. If they need longer to raise money, the sports will start in 201213. The costs of operating the two new programs is estimated at $180,000. “Our on-campus enrollment has been dropping,” WSC athletic director Hunter Berg said. “Athletics is one way we can get students into coming to o u r c a m - Berg pus.” The two sports could bring in as many as 60 students to the Williston State campus. The decision to add softball was an easy one since most schools in the Mon-Dak are offering the sport. Plans are in the works to build a softball field next to Phil Rabon Field. Continued on 4D

Patriots stop Golus

Ready for big time

Century slows down Bravette when it matters

Rosenthal’s ‘NHL goal’ turns out to be gamewinner for ’Cats

By MICHAEL WEBER Bismarck Tribune Century had a difficult time trying to contain Turtle Mountain standout Sasha Golus through the first 28 minutes of Friday night’s West Region girls basketball game. But shutting down the 5-foot-10 senior in the final eight minutes helped keep the top-ranked Patriots unbeaten. Golus had 31 points at the 8:02 mark of the second half, but only three the rest of the way as Century rallied for a 66-62 victory over the fifthranked Bravettes at Linette Olson Gymnasium. Later, the top-ranked Century boys completed the sweep with a 81-61 victory. After Golus scored her 30th and 31st points of the game, Turtle Mountain led 54-50. However, Golus didn’t score again until she made the first of two free-throw attempts with 1:05 remaining. That made it 63-60 Century. Golus’ next field goal

T h a t p u l l e d t h e Bravettes within 65-62. “We made some defensive adjustments that worked,” said Century coach Ron Metz, whose team improved to 7-0 overall and 5-0 in region play. “The biggest thing was being more aggressive on the help side. We made sure we had two girls on (Golus) at all times. She’s a proven talent … someone you really have to game plan for. She was outstanding for most of the game, but we finished well defensively.” Golus, a first-team allstate selection last year, finished with 34 points, 18 rebounds, five blocks and five steals. For a time it appeared that the Patriots would win what was expected to be a

Century’s Tyler Loraas puts up a shot over Turtle Mountain’s Shaiyan Davis in West Region play Friday. close game between two unbeaten teams in a rout. After a slow start, Century rolled to a 14-point lead. Hannah Jeske’s 3-pointer with 3:37 remaining in the first half made it 35-21. But, the Bravettes closed out the half on a 14-4 run, with Golus scoring seven of her 21 first-half points. “That’s what good teams will do. They’ll find a way to get themselves back in it,” Metz said. “We put together a nice run to build that big lead. The girls did such a nice job executing in that stretch. But give Turtle Mountain

credit. They stepped it up defensively, and started executing on the offensive end.” Turtle Mountain coach D.J. McGillis said slow starts are nothing new to his team. “We’ve started slow in all of our games. We were able to overcome them the first four games, but not tonight,” he said. “We got ourselves in a big hole, and it’s tough to come back against a good team. We managed to fight back like we always do, but it took a lot out of us. We didn’t play very well late in the game.” Continued on 4D

Nikolaj Rosenthal demurred when he heard that coach Layne Sedevie called his second goal Friday night “an NHL goal.” Maybe a World Junior Championship-caliber goal? Regardless, Rosenthal’s one-timer was a beauty, and it was the game-winner as the Bobcats came from behind to beat the Aberdeen Wings 3-1 for their sixth straight victory. Rosenthal, who played for Denmark in the World Junior Champoinship Division I tournament last month, made his return to the Bobcat lineup a memorable one. “It’s great to be back,” Rosenthal said. “I don’t think I could have had a better game today. ... I’m just glad we won.” Rosenthal’s play was a big reason why the Bobcats kept on rolling, maintain-

Bobcats 3, Aberdeen 1 ing a share of first place in the Central Division. After spotting Aberdeen the first goal, the Bobcats scored three times in a span of 2:44, with Rosenthal netting his 10th and 11th of the season. “I think he’s a really special player,” Sedevie said. T i m Tu s c h e r g a v e Aberdeen the lead with the only goal of the first period. Aberdeen goalie Frederick Leisner turned aside several strong chances for Bismarck to protect that lead, but once the Bobcats got a bit of momentum, they seized control. Dan Zawacki, who kept up his hot streak with two assists, was the playmaker on a Bismarck rush. Rosenthal finished the play, tying the game at 12:13 of the second. “Zawacki made a very good assist on that goal,” Rosenthal said. “He made a Continued on 4D

Fighting Sioux pummel Robert Morris in hockey GRAND FORKS (AP) — North Dakota Aaron goalie Dell made 32 saves and Corban Knight and Brock Nelson had two goals each as the Fighting Sioux beat Robert Morris 8-0 on Friday. Knight added an assist to

finish with three points for the second-ranked Sioux (15-5-2). Both Knight’s goals came in the first period for North Dakota, which scored three times in each of the first two periods. Jake Marto had a goal and

Fighting Sioux men’s basketball team riddled with injuries GRAND FORKS (AP) — After the University of North Dakota men’s basketball team learned it had lost starting forward Spencer Goodman and reserve center Mitch Wilmer for the rest of the season, coach Brian Jones was asked if his front line could get any thinner. “Can we knock on wood?” Jones responded. That might be the only solution remaining to keep the Fighting Sioux healthy as they prepare for the second half of their season, which begins Sunday with a home game against Longwood University of Virginia. Goodman, a 6-foot-5

sophomore, will need surgery and nine months of rehabilitation on his injured shoulder. Wilmer, a 6-11 sophomore who had a breakout game against North Dakota State last month, broke his wrist during the game and his return isn’t expected until the last week of the season. “Starting the year, we had a lot of bodies,” Jones said. “Now, we’re very thin. It’s crucial to keep the bodies that are with us able to play. And once January really hits, it’s about keeping our bodies fresh and our minds fresh. It’s not so much the pounding of long, long practices

UP NEXT Longwood at University of North Dakota, 6 p.m. Sunday anymore. Our schemes are in on both ends of the floor; now it’s about tightening it up and working on individual development.” UND’s injur ie s have resulted in the Sioux going with five true freshmen or redshirt freshmen in their eight-man rotation. There is some good news. The Sioux will play six straight home games the rest of the month, a first for the

program making its way through an NCAA Division I transition. After Longwood, an independent that already has played 18 games, the Sioux host Minot State Thursday. UND then begins Great West Conference play by hosting South Dakota on Jan. 15. In addition to the six January home games, UND’s schedule also softens. There are no more Wisconsins or Nebraskas awaiting the Sioux, who are 5-9. “Hopefully, we’ll get some confidence and get a roll going,” Jones said. “This is a great opportunity for us to get some wins under our



belts, as long as we continue to work hard and take care of business as we have throughout the season.” True freshman Troy Huff, a 6-4 guard from Milwaukee, leads the Sioux in scoring, averaging 10.3 points. He’s become a regular, thanks to the rash of injuries that have



plagued the program. “It comes with the territory,” Huff said of UND’s sudden injury-induced youth movement. “Division I basketball is aggressive. But we’re definitely ready for the conference. We want to get on a roll with these next two games coming up.”

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — With rumors swirling about LSU coach Les Miles’ future, Jordan Jefferson threw three touchdown passes to Terrence Toliver and ran for a score to help the Tigers rally for a victory over Texas A&M on Friday. In the days leading up to the Bowl, Miles said his focus was on his Tigers and that he enjoyed where he was. But LSU has now completed its fourth season with at least 11 wins under Miles.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Bo Levi Mitchell led three straight late touchdown drives, the finale coming with 2:47 left, leading Eastern Washington a victory. The Eagles trailed 19-0 and had gained only 92 yards midway through the third quarter. Facing the defense that gave up the fewest points per game in the FCS, their title hopes looked shot. Eastern Washington beat North Dakota State in overtime in the quarterfinals.

Bobcats win

Continued from 1D In the second half, the Bravettes twice got within one before pulling even at 50 on a Whitney Wallette 3-pointer with 9:24 remaining. Over the next 1:22, Turtle Mountain got a pair of free throws and a basket from Golus to go ahead 5450. But Century never relinquished the lead after a 7-0 run that included five points by Alexis Jacobs. Jacobs ended the night with 15 points and 10 rebounds. The Patriots held on despite missing seven of 12 free throws in the final 5:02. They were 14for-29 for the game. “That’s something we definitely have to improve on,” Metz said. “You have to make your free throws. It’s that simple.” Jeske led the Patriots with 17 points.

Century 81, TM 61 Eleven Patriots scored as Century cruised to its seventh victory without a loss. “The best thing about tonight was we did a nice job of sharing the basketball,” Century coach Darin Mattern said. “That’s a big emphasis for us this year. If you have seven, eight, nine kids who can score, it makes you really difficult to guard. A lot of kids contributed to the scoring in this game.” Seniors Justin Ledger and Carson Wentz combined for 40

them.” Kotelnicki comes to UMary from Wisconsin-River Falls, where he was the assistant head coach in 2010 and the offensive coordinator from 2007-10. Under Kotelnicki’s direction, the NCAA Division III Falcons set 21 team offensive records and 12 players earned individual honors. “We are excited to have Andy on board,” Schulz said. “He brings a ton of energy to our team. I look forward to a marriage of his ideas to our existing system.” In Kotelnicki’s first year as offensive coordinator at Wisconsin-River Falls, the Falcons offense increased scoring from 13.1 points per game to 30.5 points per game. They improved passing yards per game from 89.4 to 234.3, enhanced the team’s total offense from 262.2 yards per game to 403.3 yards per game, and increased the team’s pass efficiency from 82.5 to 116.6.

Rotary Wrestling Tournament Continued from 1D Today’s finalists include two wrestlers seeking their four th Rotar y championships and six unbeatens. Kris Klapprodt (171) and Jarrett Jensen (152) of Stevens are both three-time winners. There are only five men ahead of them. The Rotary has produced four four-time champions and one five-time winner in its 43-year history. Bismarck’s Travis Lang is the only fivetime winner. The four-time champs are Century’s Kasey Gilliss and Troy Sabot, Dickinson’s Marc Mellmer and Wahpeton’s Justin Solberg. The unbeatens are Klapprodt, Wilson, Dawson County’s Dillon Tennant (103), Turtle Mountain’s T.J. Lavallie (112), Napoleon’s Jared Reis (145) and Sturgis’ Terrance Maier (189). All but two of the 14 top seeds have reached the finals. Cole Mehring, No. 1 at 125, and Kirby Kain, the top seed at 130, fell within minutes in Friday’s semifinals.

Marauders offensive coordinator Thomas is a former UND coach and athletic director. “There’s a relationship between coach Schulz and my brother,” Kotelnicki said. “I came on campus and met with Roger Thomas. By surrounding yourself with quality people, you make yourself successful.” Kotelnicki begins his new job with four years experience as an offensive coordinator plus two years coaching at the NCAA Division I FCS level. “I thought he knew his X’s and O’s very well,” Schulz said. “I thought he was articulate. He has coached at the Division III and the FCS level, and that really prepares you for Division II. We have 26 scholarships, so nobody gets a full ride. He’s used to recruiting at the scholarship and non-scholarship levels. “I thought we were on the same page. You will see a lot of the same because that’s what we have recruited for. You will see a lot of tweaks, but the average fan probably won’t notice

cross-ice pass, and I (one-timed) it.” But it was the second one-timer that had Sedevie raving, after Rosenthal finished a feed from Danny Ray. “Anybody who saw him one-time the puck from the corner — that to me, that’s an NHL goal right there,” Sedevie said. “You see a goal like that — it’s like, ‘Wow!’ ” Rosenthal smiled at that assessment. “I don’t know about that, but it was a good goal,” he said. “... I was just standing on my side over there, and then I saw Ray had the puck. I started screaming, ‘Danny Ray! Danny Ray! Pass the puck!’ And then I just shot, (one-time).” Just 16 seconds later the Bobcats doubled their lead. Leisner made the initial stop on Charlie Mosey, but was down and out as Sam Dougherty pounced on the rebound and slid it past the helpless goalie to make it 3-1. Sedevie liked the Bobcats approach after falling behind. “We kept to what was working, we kept trying to get pucks to the net, and good things happened,” he said. “We don’t want to change anything. We don’t want to play desperate. We want to stick to our systems and do what works.” The Bobcats had won five straight before a long Christmas break

in 2006 as the special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach. Kotelnicki said he does share some of t h e s a m e Schulz philosophies as Fisk in the spread offense. “The word spread is used so much nowadays,” Kotelnicki said. “There are a lot of similarities to what they’ve done and what I’ve done. My decision will be personnel-based — find your best players, get them on the field and get them the ball.” Kotelnicki has already met with the U-Mary players. “They’re excited to get going,” he said. “There was a lot of momentum and excitement for how the season ended for them. I watched film and saw how they developed throughout the year. They’re excited, and I’m excited to build on that.” U-Mary finished the sea-

At one time, the Marauders were just 1-7, but closed the season with three straight wins including an upset over Winona State on the road. Prior to joining the Wisconsin-River Falls staff, Kotelnicki served as an assistant coach at Western Illinois for two years. He was the tight ends and assistant special teams coach in 2005 and an assistant line coach in 2004. During his years with the L e a t h e r n e c k s, h e a l s o worked as an assistant strength and conditioning coach. He received a master’s degree in kinesiology from Western Illinois in 2006. Kotelnicki is a 2004 graduate of Wisconsin-River Falls with a bachelor’s degree in health and human performance. He was the starting center for the Falcons from 2001-03 and a team captain as a senior. He began his collegiate coaching career at his alma mater as a student assistant offensive line coach in 2003.

Williston State “Softball is such a new sport in Williston,” Berg said. “It will be an introductory sport to our campus and community. It’s not full bore here like it is in some communities. Once we explain the conference could have six or seven teams that offer softball, it will be easy for people to see that’s why we are adding it. I don’t envision any problems with it.” The hockey team would potentially play at the AgriSports Complex or the Raymond Family Center. Berg said adding hockey wouldn’t be as big of an expense as what some people would think. Berg said the Tetons’ hockey schedule would be similar to what Dakota-Bottineau plays, matching up with Minot State, North Dakota State JV and senior teams from Canada. “Our schedule would look almost identical to Bottineau’s,” Berg said. “We are looking forward to modeling a program after something similar to what Dakota College has on their campus.” Berg believes that college

Continued from 1D hockey will be received well in the community of Williston. “We think hockey is a popular sport in Williston,” Berg said. “Hockey is well supported and draws great interest from fans. The town wants to see more kids coming to school on our campus.” Berg said adding hockey was a better fit than football for the school. “For us, football seemed like such a large commitment in terms of number of players and dollars for equipment it takes to equip a football team,” Berg said. “With football, we knew we would have to construct a practice facility of some type on our campus.” Berg said the next step is to raise the funds for both sports. “The Williston community has been supportive of our athletic programs and all programs in town,” Berg said. “We will talk to people who would like to see a college hockey team in Williston and ask them for help in funding a program.” ■ Bismarck Tribune

Packers ready to chase Vick By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer G R E E N B AY, Wi s. — Green Bay Packers coaches didn’t take any unorthodox measures to simulate the speed and elusiveness of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick this week. Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said backup quarterback Matt Flynn played Vick’s role in practice as the team prepared for Sunday’s playoff game. While Flynn doesn’t have Vick’s athleticism — who does? — Capers thought it was more important for his defense to face somebody who can throw. “It’s hard to simulate (Vick),” Capers said. “In the past, there’s times when you might take a receiver or something and put him back there, but they aren’t going to throw the ball the way you want it thrown.” If the Packers were to have a special guest star running the scout team in an attempt to mimic what they’ll see from Vick, linebacker Desmond Bishop said he would nominate wide receiver Greg Jennings. Jennings laughed off the suggestion. “There’s no simulating Michael Vick,” Jennings said. The way the Packers’ defense is playing — they were No. 2 in scoring defense this season — the Packers

UP NEXT WHO: Green Bay vs. Philadelphia WHAT: NFC wild card playoffs WHEN: 3:30 p.m., Sunday WHERE: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia ON: FOX, KFYR think they can stop just about anybody. But they have a healthy respect for Vick’s ability and know they’re in for a long day Sunday, win or lose. Packers defensive lineman Ryan Pickett isn’t exactly relishing the challenge of chasing Vick around. “No. I absolutely hate it,” Pickett said. “It is not fun chasing that guy around. But you’ve just got to keep heat on him.” This will be the second time the Packers have faced Vick this season. This time, they insist they’ll be ready. When the Packers went to Philadelphia in Week 1, Kevin Kolb was the Eagles’ starter and the Packers prepared for a more traditional dropback passer. But a big hit from Clay Matthews took a toll on Kolb, Vick replaced him — and nearly led the Eagles to a comeback victory with 175 yards passing and 103 yards rushing. “It’s a big difference,”

Pickett said. “We didn’t expect him to play much at all, so our gameplan wasn’t suited for Vick. He came in, and we just basically played the plan that we had for Kolb, but you can’t play him like you play Kolb. It’ll be a big difference.” Vick expects the Packers to be ready. “Obviously, when I came in the game we was already down 13 points or whatever the deficit was,” Vick said. “They just sat back and played their scheme. Obviously now I know they’ll have some things cooked up and they’ll do some differently things. But it’s football. We all have to adjust and make plays and be pros.” And with the Packers now planning for Vick, cornerback Charles Woodson said he hopes Capers will stay aggressive with the Packers’ pass rush. “We know what we’re going up against,” Woodson s a i d . “ We k n ow ( h ow ) dynamic that Vick is. He’s a very big part of what they do, of what they’re doing right now. He makes a lot of plays with his feet, but we’ve got to make sure we stay aggressive and make him run if he has to and make sure that we do our job in the back end. But aggressive, that’s the way we like to play.” Blitzing Vick seemed to work well for the Minnesota Vikings in a surprising win

Colts take business approach

over the Eagles in the second-to-last game of the regular season, although Vick said a leg injury limited his ability to scramble then. “I hurt my leg on the first play of the game and it hurt me,” Vick said. “I couldn’t do the things I wanted to do. I couldn’t push up in the pocket. But I won’t use that as an excuse.”

Vick got a week off to rest in the Eagles’ regular season finale, and Bishop knows the Packers will have to be ready. “We’ve got to do a good job of not going to sleep on him, because a lot of the things he does, he’ll kind of lull you to sleep and he’ll take off,” Bishop said. “If you’re not at full speed, he’s arguably one of the fastest

guys in the NFL. You’ve got to know where he’s at on the field and that’s pretty much it.” But with the way the Packers’ defense is playing, Pickett is confident. “We like our matchup with anybody on defense, because we’re playing good ball,” Pickett said. “It’s tough to score on us.”

Saints open defense of crown By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer

By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS — Peyton Manning has kept it all business this week. He studied tapes, looked for flaws and worked overtime to figure out how he beat the Jets defense. No change there, so don’t take it personally, Rex. “It takes you absolutely forever to watch one game with their defense because they have so many different players and formations. It’s a full-time cram session,” Manning said. “It just takes you time if you are going to truly study.” Few prepare more thoroughly than Manning, and even fewer can match the feats of the only four-time MVP league in history. This week’s possible milestones include passing Joe Montana for No. 2 on the postseason completions list and moving into the top five in playoff TD passes. So if Ryan thought he could make Manning fret by calling this week’s matchup “personal,” well, think again. As Ryan continued chirping, Manning kept working. “I really don’t have any reaction to it,” Manning said. “I know how hard it is to prepare for this style of defense.” Playing mind games with Manning is dangerous, something nobody understands better than Ryan.

Indianapolis’ Peyton Manning and the Colts have had little trouble with teams coached by Rex Ryan.

He’s 1-5 against Manning as the Jets coach and Ravens defensive coordinator, with the win coming in a game Manning didn’t even finish. The Colts yanked their starters early in Week 16 last season, throwing away their chance at a perfect season and helping the Jets position themselves to charge into the playoffs. Four weeks later, the teams met again in the AFC championship game and Manning led the Colts to a come-from-behind victory. So given what Ryan has endured in the past, anything is worth a shot. “I remember in Baltimore, we had to get a stop to get the ball back and make it a game, and it was third down and it was just impossible to make the pass he makes to Dallas Clark,” Ryan UP NEXT recalled of another playoff WHO: N.Y. Jets vs. Indianapolis loss to Manning’s Colts. “He WHAT: AFC wild card playoffs still made the throw and WHEN: 7 p.m., today they went down and kicked WHERE: Lucal Oil Field, a field goal, and the game Indianapolis ON: NBC, KFYR was essentially over.”

Over the years, Ryan has seen that scenario play out time and again. From implausible throws to perfect game management to timely calls, Manning seems to have written the book on beating Ryan. Changing that will likely take a ball-control offense, a l o c k d ow n d e f e n s e, n o turnovers and a little good luck. New York certainly has the pieces to do it. Shonn Greene and L a D a i n i a n To m l i n s o n helped the Jets rank fourth in the NFL in rushing, and the Jets are coming off last week’s season-high 276yard showing at Buffalo. Defensively, the Jets are No. 3 overall and No. 6 against the pass and they’re hoping to get a payoff after bringing in cornerback Antonio Cromartie to team with All-Pro Darrelle Revis. Ryan acknowledged that the move for Cromartie was designed specifically to stop two teams — the Colts and the Patriots.

SEATTLE — A year ago, the New Orleans Saints rode the raucous enthusiasm of the Superdome through the NFC playoffs to the first Super Bowl title in franchise history. Hope they waved goodbye to the Superdome on their way out of town earlier this week. There’s a good chance if these Saints are going to get all the way back to the league’s title game, they’ll be asked to do it on the road. The first stop on their postseason road trip begins today against the Seahawks in the first round of the NFC playoffs. It doesn’t quite seem right the defending champs and an 11-win team this season would be asked to travel 2,000 miles on a short week to face the first division champs in league history with a losing record — and a team the Saints beat 34-19 in Week 11. “We all have a formula for getting in. We all know ahead of time. No one was upset about it or complaining about it before the start of the season,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “I think that value of winning your division means something. Just as a season ago when the postseason began, the teams that are in now really are 0-0. That’s just the truth. I think our players understand that more than anything.” But the task in front of the Saints as the No. 5 seed in the NFC became seemingly more difficult as the week

progressed. There’s the second consecutive short week having played at Atlanta on Dec. 27, losing at home to Tampa Bay last Sunday and taking off Thursday after practice to make the five-hour flight to Seattle. There’s the Pacific Northwest weather, where rain and even a chance of some light snow are being forecast for today. There’s the Saints history, which tells the story of a franchise that has never won, let alone played well, away from the Superdome in the playoffs. New Orleans lost 16-6 at Chicago in 1991; 34-16 at Minnesota in 2001; and 39-14 at Chicago in the NFC championship game four years ago. Then there’s the injuries. Already this week, the Saints placed their top two running backs — Chris Ivory and Pierre Thomas — on injured reserve. Only Reggie Bush

Marques Colston, who had eight catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting against Seattle, is listed as probable, but underwent knee surgery less than two weeks ago. Safety Malcolm Jenkins is out, thinning a secondary that allowed 366 yards passing to Seattle earlier this year. Starting outside linebacker Danny Clark, tight end Jimmy Graham and defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove are also out. What first looked like a glorified scrimmage for the Saints to get ready for the next round of the playoffs has turned, leaving just the slightest bit of possibility to the thought: “Can Seattle actually pull the upset?”

JPMorgan leads stocks lower NEW YORK (AP) — A disappointing jobs report dragged stocks lower Friday. Banks took a hit after a Massachusetts court upheld a ruling in a foreclosure case against U.S. Bancorp and Wells Fargo & Co. that could lead to more trouble for lenders. The Labor Department said employers added 103,000 jobs in December, less than analysts expected. Job growth has remained sluggish in the U.S. since the recession ended in June 2009. A separate survey found that the unemployment rate fell to 9.4 percent last month. That’s a decrease from 9.8 percent in November and the lowest rate in 19 months. But the drop came partly because many people gave up looking for work. “On balance, this was a pretty disappointing report,” said Hugh Johnson, chairman and chief investment officer of Johnson Advisors. It “suggests we have a long way to go to recover the

Slow growth in jobs underscores challenges By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy is steadily adding jobs, but still just barely enough to keep up with the growth of the work force. The weakness underscores the nation’s struggle to get back to something resembling normal employment. The economy added 103,000 jobs in December, a figure that fell short of what most economists were hoping for. The unemployment rate did come down, to 9.4 percent from 9.8, but that was partly because people gave up looking for work. “The labor market ended last year with a bit of a thud,” Ryan Sweet, an economist at Moody’s Analytics, said after t h e L a b o r De p a r t m e n t released its monthly jobs report Friday. He said the drop in unemployment wasn’t likely to be sustained. O v e r t h e p a s t t h re e months, the economy has added an average of 128,000 jobs a month. That’s just enough to keep up with population growth. Nearly twice as many are generally needed to significantly reduce the unemployment rate. All told, employers added 1.1 million jobs in 2010, or about 94,000 a month. The nation still has 7.2 million fewer jobs today than it did in December 2007, when the recession began. Some economists predict that the nation will create twice as many jobs this year as it did last year. They note that people who still have jobs are not as worried about losing them as they might have been a year ago, and that people are spending more. A rebound in retail sales probably means businesses will hire more people. Economists also expect that a tax cut that takes effect this month — a reduction in the amount taken out of workers’ paychecks to pay for Social Security — will also lead Americans to spend more this year. “The conditions are in

place to get pretty good job growth this year,” said John Canally, an economist at LPL Financial. “The payroll tax cut is in place, exports are booming, and banks are lending again.” But even if hiring picks up, the damage from the recession, which has been over for a year and a half, will take years to undo. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told a Senate panel Friday it could take five more years for the unemployment rate to return to a more normal level of 6 percent. Most economists think unemployment will still be near 9 percent at the end of 2011. “This was a brutal recession we went through,” said President Barack Obama, who introduced Washington insider and veteran adviser Gene Sperling as director of the National Economic Council.

The president said the jobs report showed that the economy is trending in the right direction, but acknowledged that hiring must accelerate. “We’ve got a big hole that we’re digging ourselves out of,” he said. That’s why the economy needs stronger job growth than after milder recessions. Hiring has picked up faster this time than after the 2001 recession. In the year and a half since this recession ended, the economy has added a total of 72,000 jobs. In the same period after the 2001 recession, the nation lost jobs — more than a million. And job growth would be even stronger if not for the depressed housing industry and financially ailing state and local governments. Construction firms and local governments shed a total of 36,000 jobs in December.
