New system for terror alerts ahead By EILEEN SULLIVAN Associated Press

Police: 11 killed in attacks across Iraq

Still on high alert

BAGHDAD (AP) — Eleven people have been killed across Iraq in separate driveby shootings and bombings, including one that targeted members of an anti-al-Qaida militia, Iraqi officials said Wednesday. In the most deadly attack, a roadside bomb killed four p e o p l e i n t h e t ow n o f Shurqat, 155 miles northwest of Baghdad. Three of the dead were members of the Sons of Iraq, a Sunni militia that has been instrumental in lessening al-Qaida’s deadly role in the country. Members of the group are often targeted by al-Qaida out of revenge and to intimidate others from joining them.

Blast destroyed all hopes of rescue GREYMOUTH, New Zealand (AP) — Rescue teams were in full gear and ready to begin searching for 29 missing miners when toxic gas levels suddenly increased, touching off an explosion that dashed all hopes of a rescue, a lost miner’s brother and police said today. Prime Minister John Key declared the disaster a national tragedy, and across New Zealand today flags flew at half staff and many churches held services for people wanting to show respect for the miners. Wednesday’s massive explosion deep inside the mine on New Zealand’s South Island came five days after the men were caught underground by a similar blast and only hours after rescuers reported their first progress in the rescue attempt.

Murkowski seeks voice in lawsuit ANCHORAGE, Alaska ( A P ) — U . S . Se n . L i s a Murkowski on Wednesday called for a rapid resolution to a lawsuit brought by election rival Joe Miller, claiming Alaska will be harmed if she isn’t sworn in Jan. 3. Attorneys for Murkowski said her seat will be vacant and Alaska will have only one senator if she’s not seated on time. “There are numerous critical issues facing our nation and Alaskans deserve to have full representation in the United States Senate,” attorney Scott M. Kendall wrote in a motion to intervene in the lawsuit. He warned that Murkowski would have a gap in service if she’s not seated and she would lose her seniority. “She would go from her current rank of 43rd to 100th,” he said. Miller sued Monday in Fairbanks Superior Court, claiming that elections officials illegally accepted improperly marked write-in ballots that benefited Murkowski.

Tuesday’s shelling by N. Korea killed 4, gutted homes By HYUNG-JIN KIM and KWANG-TAE KIM Associated Press INCHEON, South Korea — As they left behind gutted homes, scorched trees and rubble-strewn streets, residents of the tiny South Korean island shelled by North Korea told harrowing tales of fiery destruction and narrow escapes. Ann Ahe-ja, one of hundreds of exhausted evacuees from Yeonpyeong island arriving in the port of Incheon on a rescue ship, said Tuesday’s artillery barrage that killed four people — two of them civilians — had caught her by surprise. “Over my head, a pine tree was broken and burning,” Ann told the AP Television News on Wednesday. “So I thought ‘Oh, this is not another exercise. It is a war.’ I decided to run. And I did.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the shelling of the island near the two nations’ disputed maritime border one of the “gravest incidents” since the Korean War. South Korean troops remained on high alert, and the country’s Cabinet held a special meeting today to assess security and economic impacts from the attack. In Washington, President Barack Obama pledged to “stand shoulder to shoulder” with Seoul and called upon China to restrain its ally, North Korea. The U.S. has more than 28,000 troops in South Korea to guard against North Korean aggression, a legacy of the bitter three-year conflict that ended in a truce, not a peace treaty, in 1953. Seoul and Washington reaffirmed plans to hold joint military exercises later this week in the Yellow Sea, just 70 miles south of Yeonpyeong. The White House said the aircraft carrier USS George Washington would take part. About 10 homes suffered direct hits and 30 were destroyed in the midafternoon barrage, according to a

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Wednesday it has alerted Congress and begun notifying foreign governments that the WikiLeaks website is preparing to release sensitive U.S. diplomatic files that could damage U.S. relations with friends and allies. Officials said the documents may contain everything from accounts of compromising conversations with political dissidents and friendly politicians to disclosures of activities that

AUSTIN, Texas — The heavyhanded style that made Tom DeLay one of the nation’s most powerful and feared members of Congress also proved to be his downfall Wednesday when a jury determined he went too far in trying to influence elections, convicting the former House majority leader on two felonies that could send him to prison for decades.

A South Korean resident walks by destroyed houses on Yeonpyeong island, South Korea, on Wednesday. local official who spoke by telephone from the island just seven miles from the North Korean shore. About 1,700 civilians live on Yeonpyeong alongside South Korean troops stationed there. “I heard the sound of artillery, and I felt that something was flying over my head,” said Lim Jung-eun, 36, who fled the island with three children, including a 9month-old strapped to her back. “Then the mountain caught on fire.” Many of those evacuated from Yeonpyeong had spent the night in underground shelters and embraced tearful family members on arrival in Incheon. The shower of artillery from North Korea was the first to strike a civilian population. In addition to the two marines killed, the bodies of two men, believed in their 60s, were pulled from a destroyed construction site, the coast guard said. At least 18 people — most of them troops — were injured. Officials in Seoul said

there could be considerable North Korean casualties. North Korea’s main Rodong Sinmun newspaper published a military statement accusing South Korea of triggering the exchange, but did not mention any casualties. The skirmish began after North Korea warned the South to stop carrying out military drills near their sea border, South Korean officials said. When Seoul refused and fired artillery into disputed waters — away from the North Korean shore — the North retaliated by shelling Yeonpyeong. Se o u l re s p o n d e d by unleashing its own barrage of howitzers and scrambling its fighter jets. North Korea, laying out its version of events, said the army warned the South several times that firing “a single shell” in its waters would draw a “prompt retaliatory strike.” A military official phoned a South Korean counterpart at 8 a.m. to urge Seoul to cancel the drills, the North’s news

agency KCNA reported. But the South Koreans — displaying their “crafty and vicious nature” — went ahead and fired dozens of shells some five hours later, prompting a defensive response, the report said. The Obama administration urged China to press North Korea to halt provocative action, saying Beijing has a duty to tell Pyongyang that deliberate acts “specifically intended to inflame tensions in the region” are not acceptable. China said late Wednesday that it was “highly concerned” about the artillery exchange and urged restraint. China “feels pain and regret about an incident causing deaths and property losses and is worried about the developments,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement. “We have always maintained that the relevant parties should, through dialogue and consultation, resolve disputes by peaceful means.”

could result in the expulsion of U.S. diplomats from foreign postings. U.S. diplomatic outposts around the world have begun notifying other governments that WikiLeaks may release these documents in the next few days. “These revelations are harmful to the United States and our interests,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said. “They are going to create tension in relationships between our diplomats and our friends around the world.” Crowley said the public airing of what were sup-

posed to be private communications will likely erode trust in the U.S. as a diplomatic partner. And he said they could cause embarrassment if the files include derogatory or critical comments about friendly foreign leaders. “When this confidence is betrayed and ends up on the front pages of newspapers or lead stories on television or radio, it has an impact,” Crowley said. The release is expected this weekend, although Wiki Leaks has not been specific about the timing. Officials speaking on

condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal matters said the administration believes that the diplomatic fallout could be substantial. Many of the cables are believed to date from the start of the Obama administration, meaning that the White House won’t be able to distance itself from any disclosures. U.S. officials are concerned that some of the leaked cables could include details of conversations in which senior foreign politicians offer candid appraisals of their governments.

He faces up to life in prison on the money laundering charge, although prosecutors haven’t yet recomDeLay mended a sentence. After the verdicts were read, DeLay hugged his daughter, Danielle, and his wife, Christine. DeLay whispered into his daughter’s ear that he couldn’t get a fair trial in Austin. DeLay had unsuccessfully

tried to get the trial moved out of Austin, the most liberal city in one of the most Republican states DeLay’s lead attorney, Dick DeGuerin, said the defense team planned to appeal the verdict. “This is an abuse of power. It’s a miscarriage of justice, and I still maintain that I am innocent. The criminalization of politics undermines our very system and I’m very disappointed in the outcome,” DeLay told reporters outside the courtroom. He remains free on bond, and several witnesses were expected to be called during the punishment

phase of his trial, tentatively scheduled to begin on Dec. 20. Prosecutors said DeLay, who once held the No. 2 job in the House of Representatives and whose tough tactics earned him the nickname “the Hammer,” used his political action committee to illegally channel $190,000 in corporate donations into 2002 Texas legislative races through a money swap. DeLay and his attorneys maintained the former Houston-area congressman did nothing wrong as no corporate funds went to Texas candidates and the money swap was legal.

Airport protest over scanners never takes off By MICHAEL TARM Associated Press CHICAGO — The big Opt-Out looked like a big bust Wednesday as most of the Thanksgiving travelers selected for full-body scans and pat-down searches chose to submit to them rather than create havoc on one of the busiest flying days of the year. In fact, in some parts of the U.S., bad weather was shaping up as a bigger threat to travelers’ hopes of getting to their destinations on time. For days, activists had waged a loosely organized campaign on the Internet to encourage airline passengers to refuse full-body scans and insist on a pat-down in what was dubbed National Opt-Out Day. But as of Wednesday afternoon, the cascading delays and monumental lines that many feared would result

He was

sent through a body scanner after a golf ball marker set off the metal detector. His wife, Marti Hancock, 58, said that ever since she was in the air on Sept. 11, 2001, and feared there was a bomb on her plane, she has been fully supportive of stringent security: “If that’s what you have to do to keep us safe, that’s what you have to do.” The Transportation Security Administration said few people seemed to be opting out. Some protesters did show up, including one man seen walking around the Salt Lake City airport in a skimpy, Speedo-style bathing suit, and others carrying signs denouncing the TSA’s screening methods as unnecessarily intrusive and embarrassing. By most accounts, though, the lines moved smoothly, and there was no more or less congestion at

major U.S. airports than in previous years on the day before Thanksgiving. “I would go so far as to say that National Opt-Out Day was a big bust,” said Genevieve Shaw Brown, a spokeswoman for the travel company Travelocity, which had staff at 12 of the nation’s largest airports watching for problems. Protest organizers — some of whom had no plans themselves to fly on Wednesday — were not prepared to declare the event a flop, saying the publicity alone cranked up pressure on the White House and the TSA to review their security measures. “The TSA now talks about re-evaluating everything,” said James Babb, an organizer for one of the protest groups, We Won’t Fly. “That is a tremendous victory for a grass-roots movement.”

First arrest made in new insider trading crackdown NEW YORK (AP) — The first strike in a new federal offensive to root out insider trading on Wall Street came Wednesday with the arrest of a consulting firm executive who prosecutors said tipped off a hedge fund manager about corporate earnings before they became public. The arrest of Don Ching Trang Chu of Somerset, N.J., came when investigators realized he was heading to Taiwan on Sunday. He made the trip frequently, but authorities were apparently concerned that he was traveling ahead of what are expected to be multiple arrests in the probe and after he had been interviewed by FBI agents on Sunday. Three hedge funds with offices in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts were raided Monday in the investigation, and on Tuesday, prominent mutual fund company Janus Capital Group said it had been subpoenaed. There was no indication Chu had dealt with those companies. According to prosecutors, Chu told the FBI agents that employees of public companies sometimes meet in Taiwan with hedge funds and disclose contracts and revenue figures, weeks before the companies announce their earnings. The complaint said some of the evidence against Chu resulted from conversations he had with Richard ChooBeng Lee, a former hedge fund co-manager who has pleaded guilty and is cooper-

ating with the government. It said Chu in June 2009 appeared to provide secrets about the second quarter earnings of California chipmaker Atheros Communica-

U.S. surrenders e-mails on Gulf oil leak estimates WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration on Wednesday defended the integrity of estimates that for months were inaccurate in showing how much oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico, disclosing thousands of pages of internal e-mails written by government scientists on the project. “It is a guess,” a senior U.S. scientist acknowledged to his colleagues. The behind-the-scenes e-mails hint at uncertainties in what the government knew during the summer, even as its scientists wrestled over how to measure oil leaking from a runaway well a mile beneath the water’s surface. The government said this week that its final estimate of 172 million gallons of oil pouring into the ocean between April 20 and July 15 was accurate. A senior scientist who led the federal effort, Bill Lehr, wrote in the e-mails that the administration went public with a summary of estimates before experts could finish their work.

Obama orders review of ‘human subjects’ safety WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday ordered a vast review to ensure that those who take part in U.S.-backed research are treated ethically, a response to the revelation that American scientists intentionally infected people at a Guatemalan mental hospital with syphilis in the 1940s. In a memo released by the White House, Obama announced a review of both federal and international standards to guard the health and well-being of research participants, known as human subjects. He also ordered a fresh investigation into what happened in the widely condemned Guatemalan experiment. In that case, as revealed earlier this year, American scientists deliberately infected prisoners and patients in a mental hospital in Guatemala with syphilis from 1946 to 1948. It was an apparent effort to test if penicillin, then relatively new, could prevent some sexually transmitted infections. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in October that it was “reprehensible research,” and both she and Obama called Guatemala’s president to apologize.

More Mexican troops head to border MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico will send more troops and federal police to try to control drug violence that has spiraled into warfare in parts of the northeast along the U.S. border, the government said Wednesday. The goal of “Coordinated Operation Northeast” is to reinforce government authority in the two states most heavily affected by a surge in violence following a split between the Gulf and Zetas drug gangs, federal police spokesman Alejandro Poire said. The new effort also aims to keep the two cartels from regrouping after the takedown of key leaders, he said. But in a media briefing with all federal security officials and governors of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, the affected states, Poire provided no details or numbers of reinforcements and answered no questions. Intense cartel violence has plagued the industrial city of Monterrey in Nuevo Leon and all of Tamaulipas, where cartel firefights and violence this month sent residents fleeing the once-picturesque tourist town of Ciudad Mier and where 72 migrants were found slaughtered earlier this year.

Charges dropped in cat killings MIAMI (AP) — A Florida teen no longer faces animal cruelty charges in a string of cat killings with prosecutors saying Wednesday that the defense showed some of them may have been killed by other animals. The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office dropped the charges against 19-year-old Tyler Weinman, who was arrested in June 2009 following a two-month string of cat deaths in Miami-Dade County. Police and prosecutors, however, defended their decision to charge Weinman. Veterinarians working with authorities concluded that 19 of 33 total cats found were killed by a human. But a forensic veterinarian hired by Weinman’s attorneys found puncture marks consistent with large animal bites on the eight cat carcasses that had been preserved. The veterinarians who made the original report admitted that the defense expert was correct. Authorities had no other carcasses to examine. Defense attorney David Macey said Weinman was innocent and unfortunately lived in the middle of where the deaths happened. “It was the wrong place at the wrong time,” Macey said of Weinman.

Facebook nears ‘face’ trademark NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook has moved a step closer toward trademarking the word “face” — at least in certain contexts. The company’s 2005 application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office received a “notice of allowance” Tuesday, which means Facebook now has six months to show that it uses the trademark and pay a $100 fee, said Cynthia Lynch, administrator for trademark policy and procedure at the agency. Or, it can file for an extension for up to 36 months. Once that’s done, the trademark can be approved or rejected. Even if it’s approved, Facebook wouldn’t have a trademark on “face” in every instance, only in online chat rooms and electronic bulletin boards for the “transmission of messages among computer users in the field of general interest and concerning social and entertainment subject matter,” according to the Patent and Trademark Office’s database entry on the application.

Retailers hope shoppers are ready By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer NEW YORK — After two Christmas seasons of pushing socks, pajamas and other basics as gifts, retailers are betting that Americans are ready to give a little more this year. The flashy sweater is replacing the basic winter coat, jewelry is starting to sparkle again, and the gift card for gasoline is being trumped by the gift card at the mall. Black Friday displays are being loaded with fancier laptops, bigger TVs and deluxe gym sets, though stores acknowledge shoppers will buy only if it’s a good deal. The cautious optimism comes as more Americans are feeling more secure financially and spending a bit more on nonessentials. Still, there are nearly

15 million unemployed, and concerns about job security still cloud consumer confidence. Spending is picking up but has not returned to pre-recession levels. Patti and Bob Marucci of Sewell, N.J., are preparing to spend more, though their finances haven’t changed that much. “I was able to not touch my

Christmas club money, I guess you could say,” Patti Marucci said. The couple, both in their 40s, were looking at $400 TVs at a Walmart store in Deptford, N.J., on Tuesday. Spending on discretionary items like clothing and home furnishings fell to 61 percent of total dollars spent last year. That should rise to 63 percent this year, about the same as

2008, according to estimates by Craig Johnson, president of retail consultancy Customer Growth Partners. It was 65 percent during the credit-fueled binge from 2000 to 2005. Given a $3.3 trillion retail market, excluding cars and gas, that extra two percentage point difference this year translates to an extra $60 billion up for grabs. The fierce retail battle for a piece of that pie means big discounts for those who have money to spend. Still, Americans are being purposeful and are expected to look for deals and stick to lists. In fact, shoppers are expected to keep paring down the number of gifts to 16.8 from 18.2 in 2009, according to Deloitte Research. But Deloitte also expects shoppers to spend more overall.

U.S. cracks down on synthetic pot By ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press WASHINGTON — Cracking down on fake pot, the government began emergency action Wednesday to outlaw five chemicals used in herbal blends to make synthetic marijuana. They’re sold in drug paraphernalia shops and on the Internet to a burgeoning market of teens and young adults. The Drug Enforcement Administration responded to the latest designer drug fad by launching a 30-day process

to put these chemicals in the same drug category as heroin and cocaine. The agency acted after receiving increasing numbers of bad reports — including seizures, hallucinations and dependency — from poison centers, hospitals and law enforcement. It was the fastest action the agency could take to get these products off the legal market. DEA spokeswoman Barbara Carreno said makers of fake pot blends like “Spice,” “K2,” “Blaze” and “Red X Dawn” label the mixtures as incense to try to hide their intend-

ed purpose. Meantime, there were indications the producers were already moving to reformulate their products using chemicals not covered by the impending ban. The fake pot — smokeable plant leaves coated with chemicals — has been the target of lawmakers and law enforcement around the country. At least 15 states have moved to regulate or ban one or more of the chemicals, as have some European and Scandinavian countries.

New probe for Afghan election By HEIDI VOGT Associated Press

Associated Press

Pope Benedict XVI acknowledges the faithful as he leaves after his weekly general audience at the Vatican on Wednesday.

Pope’s remarks on condoms sow confusion By TOM BREEN and RACHEL ZOLL Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. — Some Roman Catholics are confused. Some are angry. Others just don’t believe the pope meant what it seems he said. Days after the release of Pope Benedict XVI’s comments that condoms can be justified to prevent the spread of HIV, there is widespread confusion about exactly what he was trying to say. The remarks have put some of the strictest defenders of church teachings in the awkward position of potentially disagreeing with the pontiff. Many church officials worldwide have been conspicuously silent. Some bishops are even seeking clarification from the Vatican. “It’s a mess,” said John Haas, president of the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia, which advises church leaders, hospitals and Vatican offices. “I’m not ready to say that the pope said what (papal spokesman Rev. Frederico) Lombardi said.” On a practical level, most Catholic-affiliated charities that minister to people at high risk of contracting AIDS are unlikely to make changes anytime soon. Haas, also a moral theologian, said he fielded calls all day Tuesday from confused bishops. Benedict’s comments come at a time when American bishops are focused on upholding Catholic orthodoxy on marriage and sexuality. “It’s important to recognize this is not some blanket opening of the door for married people to use artificial birth control,” said Mark Silk, director of the Leonard Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn. In some heavily Catholic nations, church leaders have avoided discussing the matter. In Spain, Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela made no mention of

the pope’s statements during a meeting of the Spanish Bishops’ Conference. When pressed by reporters, only Cardinal Carlos Amigo responded. Church leaders, he said, would have to read the book carefully first. In the Andes region of So u t h A m e r i c a , t h e re appeared to be few mentions of the pope in news media, and his remarks were not mentioned in services at several Masses attended by Associated Press reporters. The National Conference of Brazilian Bishops said it would not comment. Brazil has one of the world’s most advanced anti-AIDS programs, and the government distributes more than 200 million free condoms each year, especially during Carnival. The Brazilian church has officially opposed the distribution of condoms, but historically has done little to stop it. The U.S. Conference on Catholic Bishops has not issued a statement and referred questions to the Vatican. The uproar is over comments Benedict made in a new book titled “Light of the World: The Pope, the Church and the Signs of the Times.” In an exchange with the author about AIDS in Africa, Benedict said that for some people, such as male prostitutes, using condoms could be a step in assuming moral responsibility because the intent is to “reduce the risk of infection.” At a news conference Tuesday in Rome, Lombardi said Benedict knew his comments would provoke intense debate, and that the pope meant for his remarks to apply not just to male prostitutes, but also “if you’re a man, a woman, or a transsexual.” The pope did not suggest using condoms as birth control, which is banned by the Roman Catholic Church, and he said condoms were not a “real or moral solution” to the AIDS crisis.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghanistan’s top prosecutor announced a new investigation Wednesday into allegations of ballot manipulation, potentially dealing another setback to a fraud-marred parliamentary election just as many had hoped a declaration of final results would allow the country to move on. The Afghan election commission, meanwhile, certified tallies from 33 of 34 provinces but failed to deliver on a promise to provide complete results more than two months after the Sept. 18 poll. The election panel said it had not decided what to do about the eastern province of Ghazni, where a host of problems clouded the ballot even after substantial investigations. Other than the delay in the Ghazni results, the winners were unchanged since fraud investigators announced a number of disqualified candidates earlier this week. The twin developments were the latest problems to overshadow the balloting that has been seen as a test of Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s commitment to reforming his corruptionridden government since he was re-elected last year in a vote that was itself heavily tainted by fraud. The allegations last year nearly under-

mined the legitimacy of Karzai’s government and pushed some NATO countries to threaten to pull troops and aid. Amid the political uncertainty, violence has been on the rise in Afghanistan. Insurgents killed five village elders in an ambush Wednesday in northern Afghanistan, NATO reported, underscoring fears that violence is spreading from more volatile areas. The men were traveling through Faryab province,

which borders Turkmenistan when their vehicle was struck by a r o c k e t - p r o p e l l e d grenade, the alliance said in a statement. Four other elders were wounded in the attack. While Taliban influence in the north and west is not as pervasive as in the movement’s southern heartland, the insurgency has been slowly expanding its presence in areas such as Kunduz, Faryab and Baghlan since 2007, mostly among Pashtuns who are a minority in northern parts of the country.

Skirmishes raise specter of violent Haiti election By BEN FOX and JONATHAN M. KATZ Associated Press PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The impromptu campaign rally ended not with cheers but panic as armed men on motorcycles, some wearing yellow-and-green T-shirts of a rival presidential contender, pulled up to the small crowd and fired into the air. Nearly everyone ripped off the red-white-and-blue Tshirts of their candidate and fled down the pitted side streets of the Cite Soleil slum, rally organizer Pierre Joseph Laimay said. He got people to campaign for Charles Henri Baker, a factory owner who is one of 19 candidates in Sunday’s presidential election, by handing out T-shirts and money for water and bus fare — and had hoped to make a little money himself from the campaign for his efforts. As the others fled, he stood his ground. “If they were going to kill me, they were going to have to do it with my T-shirt on,” said the 45-year-old father of three. He looked nervously down the street. The U.N. representative in Haiti, Edmond Mulet,

A bomb also killed a NATO service member Wednesday in the south, raising to 46 the number of NATO troop deaths so far this month. Attorney General Mohammad Ishaq Alako announced the investigation into ballot fraud in an address to parliament that was broadcast on Afghan television. He alleged that the election was bought and sold by powerful, well-connected Afghans through secret dealings in Dubai, without elaborating.

A person removes electoral posters with images of presidential candidate Jude Celestin during a protest against the upcoming elections in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Wednesday. called the “volatile political climate” a Haitian tradition. Multiple candidates have reported attempts on their lives — a credibility-building boast in a country where election days have long been synonymous with voter intimidation and massacres. Recent elections, including the 2006 vote that put President Rene Preval in power, have been notably calmer, though not free of

violence. But any disturbances could derail this year’s vote, which already must contend with a rapidly spreading cholera epidemic and the fallout from the devastation of last January’s earthquake. The next president will oversee billions of dollars in U.S. and other foreign reconstruction aid. The front-runners are divided on what should be done with it. Nearly all are criticizing the post-quake inaction of Preval, who was barred from running again. His new Unity party has put up Jude Celestin, the head of the country’s staterun construction company, who would be expected to carry on Preval’s policies, and possibly retain the current prime minister and much of the Cabinet. “This period coming up is going to be critical for the nation state to make some decisions about how this country rebuilds itself over the coming years,” U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Merten said. Washington, which is Haiti’s largest international donor, has backed the decision to go forward with the elections and provided $14 million in support.

Police raid gangcontrolled slums in Rio; 14 dead RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Police raided gang-ruled shantytowns Wednesday, setting off clashes that killed 14 people as authorities try to halt a wave of violent crime that has rattled rich and poor alike in a city that Brazil hopes to make a showplace for the 2016 Olympics. Police invaded the Vila Cruzeiro community and surrounding slums early in the day, engaging in intense gunbattles. Twenty-five people were detained. “We didn’t start this war,” police spokesman Henrique de Lima Castro Saraiva said. “We were provoked. But we will emerge victorious.” Over the past three days, 21 people had been killed and about 150 arrested during sweeps by 17,500 officers, Lima Castro said. Two officers suffered minor wounds in Wednesday’s fighting. A wave of recent gang viol e n c e h a s s h a k e n R i o. Authorities say gangs are lashing back in response to a law-enforcement drive to regain control of territory the past two years. The police force has been assigned an additional 1,200 officers to fend off attacks. “We are stepping up our efforts,” Lima Castro said. “We will be even more trenchant tomorrow.” ■ Bismarck Tribune

Richard Palmer

Richard was born June 23, 1929, in Minneapolis, the son of Charles and Josephine Palmer. He grew up in Robbinsdale, Minn., where he attended grade and high school. After serving in the Army during the Korean conflict, he worked as a reporter for the Fairmont (Minn.) Daily Sentinel. While there, he met Bernice Schumacher, a reporter for the Estherville (Iowa) Daily News. At the time, each was covering a triple murder in Sherburn, a small town in southern Minnesota. There followed a summer of long distance dating, leading to their wedding on Sept. 18, 1954, at Ottertail, Minn., the hometown of Bernice. The two moved to Minneapolis, where Dick registered for journalism classes at the University of Minnesota. When he graduated, the journalism fraternity Sigma Delta Chi named him the “Outstanding Male Journalism Graduate of 1957.” After graduation, he and his family returned to Fairmont, where he worked as a reporter-photographer until 1959. He then joined The Associated Press wire service in Fargo. Eight months later, he was transferred to the AP office in Bismarck, where he served as capitol reporter and correspondent for eight years. Dick joined the North Dakota Education Association staff as communications director in 1967. He coordinated the annual state association’s convention and the participation of state teachers in the national association convention. He also served as the liaison for its public relations association. Dick also was active in the National Education Association. He was a charter member of the National Public Re l a t i o n s Co u n c i l a n d served as a leader in the NEA’s State Education Editors group. His peers in these national organizations recognized his work with numerous awards for best magazine, newspaper, photography, news and feature stories. In 1968, his peers in the PR Council chose him to receive the Public Relations Council National Award of the year. After he retired from NDEA in 1993, he worked as a consultant and freelance writer for the NEA, NDEA, NDEA-Retired and other organizations. On the local level, Dick was a longtime member of Trinity Lutheran Church, serving on the church council, writing articles, fundraising and participating in small group activities. He was a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, Bismarck Woodcarvers, the North Dakota Wildlife Federation and the Bismarck Lions Club, which recognized his service with a Melvin Jones award. Dick and his wife received the 1971 Communicator of the Year award for their work in the wildlife federation. They received a second commendation for their work in the federation’s “Save the Deer” campaign during the severe winter of 1977-78. They headed a campaign that raised over $31,000 to buy food for deer and other wildlife that was distributed by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. Dick is survived by his wife of 56 years and five children. They and their spouses are Howard and Mary Beth Palmer, Minot, Penny Rae

and Scott Robinson, Houston, Pamela Jo and Earl Torgerson, Bismarck, Roger and Anita Palmer, Dallas, and Randy and Mary Palmer, Bismarck; and his 11 grandchildren, Stephen, Leah, David and Anne Palmer, Jennifer and Rebekah Robinson, AJ, Luke and Hannah Torgerson and Carly and Erin Palmer.

Discovery’s last flight may be at Christmas CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Baffled by fuel tank cracks, NASA announced another prolonged launch delay for space shuttle Discovery on Wednesday and raised the prospect of a Christmastime flight. Shuttle managers refused to set a new launch date for Discovery’s final flight, on hold since the beginning of November. The next launch opportunity would be Dec. 17. “We would have liked to have found a most probable cause by now” for the cracks that were found on Discovery’s fuel tank, said Bill Gerstenmaier, head of NASA’s space operations. “This is turning out to be a little more complicated from an analysis standpoint.” “We’ll let the data drive where we’re heading,” he told reporters. Hydrogen gas leaks halted the countdown for Discovery on Nov. 5. An unrelated crack later was found in the insulating foam on the external fuel tank; cracks in the actual exterior of the t a n k t h e n w e re f o u n d beneath the flawed foam. NASA wants to understand the cracking before launching Discovery to the International Space Station one last time. The space agency had been working toward a Dec. 3 liftoff for the 11-day mission. But that was no longer feasible given all the tests and analyses remaining. A new space station crew is due to lift off from Kazakhstan on Dec. 15 and arrive at the orbiting complex two days later; at this point, Discovery must wait until after that. Gerstenmaier said there are some launch possibilities in January and February, but the first official window of 2011 would not open until the end of February. A number of unmanned cargo ships are scheduled to fly to the space station early in the year, complicating matters.

The holiday helps keep perspective Thanksgiving Day represents an essentially American holiday — pilgrims, extended-family table, turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pie. It’s a national holiday that celebrates the largess of the land and its generosity to its people. It’s about faith and family. It’s a time when we inevitably look around, measure how good we have it, and then offer thanks. Most North Dakotans have had it very good this year, indeed. We are riding high on the benefits of the land. Many of our sister states, however, are struggling economically, beaten down by unemployment and debt. Yet Americans, in even the most depressed of states, remain rich by the standards of some parts of the world. For example, compare the recent American difficulties with the island country of Haiti, which was dismantled by an earthquake on Jan. 12, leaving more than 200,000 people dead. More recently, TRIBUNE thousands of cases of cholera were EDITORIAL diagnosed with nearly 1,400 more dead. North Dakotans are like the pilgrims of 1621 in that our bounty comes from the land — crude oil and lignite coal, wheat and sugar beets, domestic livestock and wild game. We, too, have a great deal to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. The nation’s public discourse has been rough of late. There are those who fear that America is in decline, that young people today will not have it as good as their parents. The idea of American exceptionalism has been tarnished by huggermuggering in high finance and gross material excess. Yet when we spin the globe, looking at the nations of the world and their citizens, we see envy for our freedoms and desire for our standard of living. Our institutions are copied and our culture imitated. Despite America’s present grapple with self doubt, we are a leader in nearly every human endeavor attempted. Are there struggles? Of course. However, we should be thankful for our democracy. It gives us the strength and means to correct course. Democracy allows for all Americans to share in benefits and responsibilities of our nation — as was illustrated plainly in the recent general election. Let’s be thankful for our democracy. We should be blessedly thankful for our Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and Constitution. We are thankful for the freedoms we enjoy. We are thankful for churches, schools and communities. Scan the horizon. Look across the oceans. Compare the world at large to America’s place, especially here on the high plains, and you will find Americans, and North Dakotans, have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR In 1834, a major party Splinter parties called the Whigs organized and opposed Andrew Jackcome and go son. By AUGUSTA ROOS Strasburg

As a former high school history teacher, I am always interested in the rise and fall of splinter political parties, or similar groups in the U.S. Currently, the tea party has shown influence in the recent election. Such parties always have a short lifespan, and are almost always in the opposition, “agin” whomever, whatever is in power. George Washington early warned of the “demon of the party spirits.” The first party, the Federalists — Washington, Hamilton, Adams — all favored a strong central government. The Anti-Federalists favored strong state’s rights in opposition to the Federalists. Thomas Jefferson, who favored limited powers for a central government, won the election of 1800.

The Whigs stressed internal improvements and elected William Harrison in 1840 and Zachary Taylor in 1848. Eventually, northerners from that group joined the Republican Party and southerners the Democratic Party. By 1850, the Whig name was gone. Other splinter parties, the “Mugmumps” or “Know Nothings” sprang up, opposing all immigrants — and Catholics. In the 1860s, another party arose called the “Copper-heads,” meaning a venomous snake. They were a serious threat to the war effort and tried to sabotage it. They also soon disappeared, but they did harm while they lasted. And so it goes. There was the “Bull Moose Party,” which supported former President Theodore Roo-

Lottery ticket led to politics WASHINGTON — Winning California’s state lottery with the first ticket he bought put Kevin McCarthy, then 20, on a path to becoming, in January, the third-ranking Republican leader of a House majority pledged to make government less bountiful. With the $5,000 he won in 1985, McCarthy opened a sandwich shop in a nook in a small mall in Bakersfield and hung a sign calling attention to it. When a government vehicle arrived, he thought city hall might have come “to give me the key to the city” as thanks for generating some jobs and sales tax revenues. But Bakersfield’s bureaucracy wanted to complain about his sign, which somehow fell short of sign orthodoxy. Annoyance led, as it often does, to politics. McCarthy served on the staff of the local congressman, then was elected minority leader in his first term in the state Assembly. He came to Congress in 2007, and in the 2009-10 election cycle was chief recruiter of candidates, such as Congressman-elect Stephen Fincher from — really — Frog Jump, Tenn. And Sean Duffy, the fivetime world champion log climber (if you yawn you are not from northern Wisconsin) who forced Democratic Rep. David Obey, mighty chairman of the Appropriations Committee, not to seek a 22nd term. Duffy did

so using ads McCarthy suggested, noting that Obey came to Congress before Woodstock and the moon landing occurred. McCarthy is one of the three intelligent authors (with Virginia’s Eric Cantor, 47, soon to be majority leader, and Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan, 40, incoming chairman of the Budget Committee) of a book with the unintelligent title “Young Guns.” They should be auditioning for the role of Cicero, not Shane. McCarthy has never been in a majority, in Sacramento or Washington. His 13-member freshman class elected in the dreadful (for Republicans) year of 2006 was the smallest cohort of new Republicans since the House was expanded to 435 seats in 1913. But he favors running the House in a way that would dilute control by the majority’s leaders, of which he is to be one, and would make life sweeter for the minority: He thinks every member should be empowered to offer amendments to spending bills. That expresses his view — which also was the Founders’, although

sevelt, and bolted the Republican Party in 1912. As a result, the Democrats won the election and

Wilson became president, and despite being led by the charismatic “Teddy,” the Bull Moose Party also

they did not put it this way — that “the Senate is the country club, we are the IHOP.” The reason Republicans think winning the presidency in 2012 is essential to fulfilling the promise of 2010 is that Barack Obama, former paladin of change, will veto change. So McCarthy understands that, pending a Republican president, much of Republican governance must occur down in the weeds of government — in the Federal Register, the record of the regulations by which the executive branch exercises its will without much congressional supervision or circumscription. But looking up from the weeds at the clouds, McCarthy has a dismaying desire to bring a “futurist” to speak to the Republican caucus each week. This betrays an unconservative faith in prophets — pursuing prophecy is a recipe for forfeiting the present — and is a depressing reminder of Speaker Newt Gingrich’s swoon about Alvin Toffler’s books “Future Shock” and “The Third Wave.” Gingrich said of himself, oxymoronically, “I am a conservative futurist.” Fascination with clairvoyants is, however, symptomatic of an unconservative hankering to surf supposed “waves” of history, and to put government in the service of, and society in harness to, Big Ideas. McCarthy was born in January 1965, the month

when Democrats, their ranks swollen by 38 House members and two senators because of Lyndon Johnson’s 1964 landslide, began the overreaching, aka the Great Society, that in 1966 produced losses of 47 House and three Senate seats. The biggest threat to Republicans, who are currently flushed with victory, is, McCarthy thinks, the delusion that “they won the election. They didn’t win anything.” Rather, Democrats got themselves fired. McCarthy is too polite to say that the Democrats were terminated because they, like the president, misread the 2008 elections as much more than the electorate’s pink slip for Republicans who were spendthrifts at home and blunderers abroad. McCarthy says “this country likes to re-elect its presidents.” But it did not re-elect one of the last two Democratic presidents (Jimmy Carter). And the one it re-elected (Bill Clinton) had the advantage, as it turned out, of a bumptious new Republican House majority that made mistakes — e.g., the government shutdown — characteristic of people who, lacking the patience of politics, seek shortcuts to the future.

went away. In every case, these groups sprang up like surface-weeds after summer shower and disappeared. Now the tea party is taking advantage of living in a democratic society. Opposing groups are allowed, but in a strong nation, the “voice of the people” will be heard. We should press on with courage and give thanks.

first pheasant. The smiles and excitement are priceless. Whether it’s watching a good dog work a patch of grass, having a bird explode from under your feet or listening to friends and family reminisce of past adventures, hunting is a time-honored tradition. Another benefit of hunting is the huge impact it has on our state and local economies. As a businessman, I see the positive impact on businesses of all sizes. The primary businesses are obvious, but the indirect benefits of hunting are what amaze me. It is a very important economic engine and valuable to both large and small communities. We sportsmen have a responsibility to encourage hunting and fishing to continue the tradition. Take a kid hunting or fishing and “pay it forward.”

Ode to joy Continued from 1A spread to her neck and lungs. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. told them 99 out of 100 times that type of cancer does not spread, but in Ali’s case, she was the 1 out of 100. In February, she underwent surgery to remove her thyroid and today is in partial remission.

Losing a gift Singing. Music. Both were a huge part of Ali’s life before cancer. But music still is — that and her faith in God. Her music teacher at St. Mary’s Central High School, Vicky Boechler, said in an interview a year ago that Ali may well be the most talented vocalist she had worked with in her 15 years of teaching. Prior to the surgery, Ali and a few of her friends cut a CD at Macoche Recording Studio in Bismarck. Boechler said it was all she could think of doing for one of her prized pupils. “I was looking for a way to preserve her voice,” Boechler said, and create a baseline in case she was able to sing again.

Getting by Ali says her faith — and her family and friends — helped her cope with the unknown for the past year. Before starting an intense round of radiation treatments, Ali had 1,078 tumors. Following the treatment, the number dropped to 26. Kris Lengenfelder said when the family was first discussing a course of treatment with doctors a year ago, they were told this type of cancer doesn’t kill 15-year-old kids. It’s what he needed to hear as a parent, he said. The doctors at Mayo have been astounded at Ali’s recovery, given the high level of cancer in her young body,

and at her rate of recovery. “Every time we go down there, they are amazed,” Rebecca Lengenfelder said. “Every time” has meant six trips to Rochester in the past year, the last a nine-day stay Oct. 11. Because of the circumstances, Ali said doctors at the Mayo clinic are considering her for a case study. Three times a week, Ali gets blood work done at St. Alexius Medical Center, results of which are sent to Rochester. Ali says she has become so well known at St. A’s because of the blood tests, it has become almost comical. Each time, she said the technicians ask if she wants to lie down or what can be done to make her more comfortable. It has become an old hat. “It’s almost like breathing,” she said. Ali has become such a fixture at the hospital, they have given her a job there in the kitchen. As part of her recovery, Ali works out at a local gym nearly every day. “This summer, I exercised like a maniac,” she said.

Feeling helpless Both Rebecca and Kris Lengenfelder say as parents, there have been issues they didn’t expect they would have to deal with. With six children, Kris Lengenfelder says the kids are expected to help out around the home and work when they are old enough, to help pay for things like their own car or cell phones. “All of these things ... you want them for your kids because you want them to be good adults,” he said. But with Ali? “Where do you draw the line?” he said. “I feel absolutely and totally helpless at times.” Ali said how she feels

They have rented a space at Buckstop Junction to have their celebration. varies widely from day to day. Fatigue is a constant issue because of the surgery that removed her thyroid glad. Some days she feels great; other days, whipped. It’s hard to explain, she said. “It’s almost like being pregnant and going through menopause at the same time.”

RIGHT: Rebecca and Kris Lengenfelder talk about the difficulties and the positive results dealing with their daughter Ali’s successful thyroid cancer surgery last February in Minnesota.

As a stay-at-home mother, Rebecca Lengenfelder said it always has been a priority to make sure everything is in order and running smoothly. The cleaning, laundry and all that comes before relaxation time. Rebecca Lengenfelder has started to rethink being so rigid. “There are days it does take a toll on the family,” she said. “For me, it’s hard to stay positive sometimes.” So while trying to retain some semblance of normalcy has been a juggling act at times, Rebecca and Kris Lengenfelder say they have plenty of reasons to be thankful. “The outpouring of support from our church, the community ... it’s been just overwhelming,” Rebecca Lengenfelder said. “It has definitely deepened out faith.” In June, Ali and her sister, Kaitlin, a senior, will travel to Rome with classmates for a pilgrimage. It is at least something that will not involve

doctors and clinics. At school and at church, some treat her differently. At Mass, she says, people she doesn’t know will turn to her and ask if she is Ali Lengenfelder. She says she is, and they tell her they are praying for her. The prayers have helped, Ali said, and in April she will return to Mayo for six days of testing. If all goes well then, it will still be two years before she

can be considered cancerfree. Ali joked a year ago that every time one has a plan, God just laughs and comes up with a new plan for one’s life. Ali said she is OK with that, and in the meantime, she is hoping her faith will help her come up with the answers to that plan. “There are a lot of things I wonder about ... like maybe why God did this,” she said. And she has learned. She

has learned that many things she worried about as a teenager really are not important. And she has learned that with faith, all things are possible. “I have to admit it’s hard sometimes,” Ali said. “I can’t even remember what it was like before.” (Reach reporter Brian Gehring at 250-8254 or

“We will still have some very cold wind chills,” Wetzel said. By later today, Wetzel said, a high pressure system will move into the region.

Dakotas issued statements urging people to be cautious. “It’s the first winter storm of the season for South Dakota, so we want to remind people to start thinking travel safety,” said Kristi Turman, director of the state Office of Emergency Management. “We know many people want to travel to be with family and friends for Thanksgiving. Please pay

attention to the weather, travel early if you can and check road reports before you leave.” Gerald Miller kept busy Wednesday plowing roads on his farm about four miles east of Bismarck.

Ridge helped develop the system in 2002 when he was the president’s homeland security adviser, and he also helped with the 2009 review.

Color codes out threat without jeopardizing national security. And an imminent threat would not last longer than a week, meaning the public wouldn’t see a consistently high and ambiguous threat level. The 8-year-old alert system, with its rainbow of colors — from green, signifying a low threat, to red, meaning severe — has become a fixture in airports, government buildings and on newscasts. Over the past four years, millions of travelers have begun and ended their trips

to the sound of airport recordings warning that the threat level was orange, an alert that has become so routine that many now simply tune it out. This could be the last holiday season they hear the monotonous message. U.S. officials confirmed the recommendation for a change had been made to President Barack Obama, who has final say in the matter. The details of the proposal were described to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because

The color has stayed the same since 2006: yellow for the country as a whole, meaning an elevated or significant risk, and orange for the aviation sector, a high risk.

Road crews to work holiday

The Queen Elizabus at the Dickens Festival. (STU MERRY/ McLean County Independent)

The plows should be moving this Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a minimum 32- to 40-hour process to remove snow and apply sand in Bismarck. City crews will be moving throughout the storm, said director of service operations Jeff Heintz. “We start with the emergency routes — Bismarck Expressway, Ninth Street, Seventh Street — where they have the most traffic,” he said. Next, crews do arterial routes that cross the emergency routes. “If school is in session, then we get to the roads that go around the schools,” he said. “Then, we will go to the residential areas.”


For Black Friday, retail area roads will be cleaned and sanded in time for shoppers, Heintz said. Early Friday morning, crews will plow north-south streets and they will remove snow from downtown east–west routes early Saturday morning. Right behind the plows are vehicles spreading an 8 percent sand-salt mix. The city stores 15,000 tons; it used half last winter. Heintz said crews will continue to clear emergency routes throughout the storm. He pulls them only when operators find visibility so poor that they will be a hazard. Plows are then placed next to a north and a south fire hall so they can clear paths for crews en route to an emergency. The snow removal schedules can be found at Heintz said businesses along signed street cleaning areas must shovel sidewalks before midnight on their designated day. He reminds residents that it is illegal to push, shovel or blow snow into the street, alley or onto another person’s property. Violators can be fined up to $1,000.

Burleigh County Burleigh County Engineer Marcus Hall said plows will be out early today through noon, depending upon conditions. Plows will return to a full day’s work Friday. He said heavily traveled county and some township roads have first priority. Paved roads, major intersections and other critical roadways will be plowed and sanded, Hall said.

Great expectations Garrison bustles to prepare for Dickens Festival By LAUREN DONOVAN Bismarck Tribune


“Is it a lot of work? You betcha, but when everybody pulls together, it all gets done. Around here, we say it’s the Fourth of July, and then it’s Dickens.”

Visitors can take a ride around town on the double-decker Queen Elizabus, stroll the streets, duck into warming houses to thaw their toes and enjoy the end-of-theafternoon lighted parade. This year, like every year, the committee sorted through dozens of good ideas to come up with ways to keep the festival fresh, yet familiar. This year, they thought “fruitcake” and came up with the idea of a Fruitcake Toss.

Mandan Mandan Public Works Director Jeff Wright said crews will be out from midnight to at least 1 p.m. today keeping main arterial roads plowed and sanded. “We’ll get to residential areas when we can,” he said. They’ll go out again at midnight Friday. “Unfortunately, our guys will be out there working. We’ll try to give them the weekend off and then start working on the school routes early Monday morning,” Wright said. Plowing routes can be viewed at

Morton County “We’ll plow as needed and visibility allows,” said Morton County Engineer Mike Aubol. He said that the county has plows and sand supplies placed in New Salem, Glen Ullin, Mandan and Flasher. “We have firstday, second-day and third-day routes,” he said. Aubol said if conditions permit in a storm, plows can clear all the roads in 11/2 days; it can take longer with more serious storms. Travelers are urged to go to and view “snow plow routes” under the county highway department. A color key shows road priorities. (Reach reporter LeAnn Eckroth at 250-8264 or

Huff Hills opens Saturday BY BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune Barring a major weather event, Huff Hills Ski Area will open for its 18th season Saturday. Andy Beck of Huff Hills said it will open at 10 a.m. Saturday and be open weekends and during school holidays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Beck said there are a number of additions to the resort this year, including a new equipment rental building that will help speed along the process for skiers. He said the former rental area in the basement of the chalet has been converted into a locker room area for customers. “We’re just putting the final touches on the building and moving in skis and equipment today,” he said.

With 4 inches of new snow in the past week and more in the forecast, Beck said conditions should be good for the opening weekend. The resort has a number of new things planned for the upcoming season, including the availability of private group and individual lessons. “We have a good group of instructors hired so we’re going to phase that in within the next couple weeks,” Beck said. The group lessons will be available in the mornings and private instruction will be available in the afternoon. Beck said it is part of a new and more aggressive marketing plan for the ski area. “We have always said we don’t try to compete with other ski areas, but (by) adding lessons and other things we can add value for people when they do decide to go there,”

Beck said. Along with that, Beck said a number of new promotions are on the schedule this year, including Local Heroes Day on Jan. 8 and a Locals Racing Series beginning Jan. 9. Beck said local skiers can test their skills against others in a scored format; it’s something he hopes will take off and become a season-long series. You can find more information on the resort on the website,, on Facebook or by calling its snow line at 663-6421. Rates start at $25 for a full day/weekend and $20 for ages up to 12 and for seniors; half-day and season passes are available. (Reach reporter Brian Gehring at 250-8254 or

Fort Union Muzzle Loaders event


The Fort Union Muzzle Loaders representing “engages,” basic manual laborers at the trading post, will occupy Fort Union Trading Post on Dec. 4 and 5 to reenact the roles of American Fur Company employees during the winter. Visitors to the fort will be welcomed by a fire in the reception room of the trade house and treated to a cup of coffee or cider, biscuits and taste of pemmican. In the trade house, they can share stories with fur trade re-enactors of life on the frontier of the upper Missouri. Weapons, dress and equipment of the re-enactors will be on display. Engages performed the basic manual labor of the trading post, said park interpreter Loren Yellow Bird. They pressed furs and robes into bundles, hauled wood and water for the fort, cut ice and performed basic construction duties. Pemmican was the food of survival in this environment. Pemmican was meat and often dried berries pounded into a paste and covered with melted fat, then pressed into cakes. Fort Union is 24 miles north of Sidney, Mont., and 25 miles southwest of Williston via Highway 1804. For information, call the park at 701-572-9083.

State tree lighting is Dec. 6 The North Dakota Council on the Arts, along with the governor’s office and Facility Management, invites the general public to the lighting ceremony for the 2010 North Dakota State Christmas Tree. The ceremony will be conducted by Gov. John Hoeven and first lady Mikey Hoeven at 5 p.m. Dec. 6 in the Memorial Hall of the Capitol Building in Bismarck. Live entertainment will be provided by Joel Gilbertson, pianist; a brass ensemble of the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra, and Dakota Stage Ltd. will perform an excerpt from “A Christmas Carol” directed by Michele Renner and Tom Chase. The ceremony is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony. The tree will be decorated with ornaments handmade by children, students, artists and craftspeople from all over North Dakota, the tradition since 1981. This year, 240 ornaments were donated to the state tree. A descriptive listing of the ornaments will be available at the ceremony.

Bus stop at mall changed The Capital Area Transit bus system will start doing pick-ups and drop-offs Friday from the north side of Kirkwood Mall, under the canopy, said spokeswoman Misty Staiger. She said the change was made based upon a larger sidewalk area on the north side that prevents riders from having to stand close to traffic paths when waiting for a bus. Mall management and the CAT administrators also agreed to make the switch due to heavier traffic during the holiday shopping season. For more information about the CAT bus, visit or call 328-9228.

NDSCS grads’ salaries improving FARGO (AP) — New reports show that students who graduate from the State College of Science in Wahpeton earn average salaries about 16 percent below those who graduate from the much larger North Dakota State University in Fargo. Science President John Richman says the salary scale for associate degrees has been improving. A study released by the College of Science states the average starting salary for recent two-year graduates was $32,000 a year. A similar survey by North Dakota State reported $38,000 as the average starting salary for four-year graduates. Richman says that in the current economy, technicians with associate degrees are in high demand. He says the highest-paid Science graduate included in the report is a welder who attended a nine-month program and earns $68,000 a year.

Hoeven names some Senate staff North Dakota Sen.-elect John Hoeven has named some key members of his staff. The Republican governor who recently was elected to the U.S. Senate says Don Larson, who is currently leading the transition effort, will be his chief of staff. Don Canton will continue to be Hoeven’s spokesman. Hoeven says that to ensure a smooth transition for the governor’s office, current Chief of Staff Ron Rauschenberger will continue to serve in that role for Lt. Gov. Jack Dalrymple through next year’s Legislature before joining the Senate staff as Hoeven’s state director. State Commerce Commissioner Shane Goettle will serve as state director before moving to another position within Hoeven’s Senate staff. — Associated Press

Fargo man sentenced for child porn FARGO (AP) — A Fargo man accused of possessing more than 700 images and 150 videos of child pornography has been sentenced to serve 6½ years in federal prison.

Legislative priorities addressed By LEANN ECKROTH Bismarck Tribune

Associated Press

Jim Maher, shown here at his Jackson, Wyo., home on Nov. 12, is a brand inspector for the state of Wyoming.

Cattle inspector a unique brand By KELSEY DAYTON For The Associated Press JACKSON, Wyo. — Jim Maher grew up watching Roy Rogers and dreaming of being a cowboy. When he was old enough, he worked on his uncle’s ranch in Arizona. He first made his way to Jackson in 1971. Cowboys and livestock are in his blood. Today in his Polo Ranch home, black-and-white photos line the walls: his grandfather and other relatives in hats and chaps and with horses. “The way of life has changed,” he said. But one thing that hasn’t changed in Wyoming is branding to prove ownership of livestock. There are probably more than 30,000 brands in Wyoming. Luckily, Maher, 62, who is Teton County’s brand inspector, doesn’t have to memorize them all. A thick hardcover book holds all the registered brands in the state. For the 40 to 50 brands Maher sees regularly in Teton County, he doesn’t need the reference book. One day, the district supervisor of the area took Maher to lunch. Just do it until we find someone else, he told Maher, trying to get him to take the position. That was 23 years ago. When he started, brand inspectors were hired by the Wyoming Stock Growers Association. For the past 15 years, Maher has been a state employee. In addition to verifying the animal’s brand, Maher now how has to inspect to make sure health regulations are met. “It used to be I’d charge 80 cents and only care about who owned the cow,” he said. Today, Maher charges $1.50 a head, counting cattle as they come off the scale. During late summer and fall, when ranchers take their cattle to be sold, Maher works seven days a week, up to 10 hours a day, inspecting brands. In the slow times of the year, he supplements his income cowboying for area ranches and doing carpentry. Brands must be renewed every 10 years. Any time there is a change of ownership, of the brand or an animal, Maher is notified. He uses a book where he draws in animals’ markings and the brand and where it goes to create a record. In 2009 he inspected 8,225 head of cattle, 569 horses and 1,712 sheep. Leaving the county without an inspection can result in a $210 fine. Branding started back in the days when livestock roamed freely and the only way to tell the difference between a neighbor’s cow and your own was the brand. It also was the only way to get your animals back if they were stolen. There is still big money in livestock, both cattle and horses, and modern thieves still exist. In October, Maher got notice of a whole semi-truck of cattle stolen in Montana. The thief backed up to a cattle chute and loaded more than 70 steers, worth more than $80,000. Every day as a brand inspector is different, Maher said.

“It used to be I’d charge 80 cents and only care about who owned the cow.” Teton County (Wyo.) brand inspector Jim Maher He has been called to court several times in civil cases dealing with divorces and theft. About seven times, he has had to care for horses in his pasture by his home while waiting to sell an animal for an inmate in jail. He has been sued personally once by a man who couldn’t prove ownership of more than 2,000 head of cattle. Being a brand inspector is a profession unique to the West. At weddings, Maher dreads the question about what he does for a living. Few people in the area even know of his job, unless they are ranchers or outfitters who brand and transport horses and cattle. Ever y year, he gets reports of dozens of lost horses during hunting season. Wyoming requires county-to-county inspections because of the distances between towns. In t h e l a s t d e c a d e, Maher has seen more brands registered by people who have no intention of ever using them on cattle. Many of the brands in Teton County are “vanity brands” that are so ornate they would injure cows if they someone tried to used them as actual brands. Brands used on animals are often simple with closed characters, such as the number 8 or the letter “B.” The simpler the brand, the less likely it will blotch and make it hard to identify on the animal. A brand is distinguished not just by what it looks like, but where it is placed on the animal. Two people in the state could have the same brand but could use it in different spots on their animals. The Lazy JM, which goes on the left side of the buttock of Maher’s horses, would go on the shoulder of his cattle, a spot Maher doesn’t like for branding cattle. So he owns another brand, the Lazy J+, for marking the right hip of his cattle. Maher’s brand for his horses puts the mark on the left side of the butt, which is a relatively new location for branding. “We’re running out of places to put branding irons,” he said. Things have changed over the years in ranching and branding. But at least one thing has stayed the same: the passion in Maher and his family for animals — especially horses. His son, Richie Maher, has a degree in business administration but decided he’d rather be a cowboy. He also shoes horses. Hi s d a u g h t e r, L a c y Hicks, is a barrel racer, and her daughter, Maher’s 14-month-old granddaughter, already has her own horse.

The Bismarck City Commission approved a state legislative pre-session priority list this week, drafted by city administrator Bill Wocken. The priorities include: ■ Oppose the efforts to ban or significantly limit the use of tax increment financing by cities. ■ Maintain and fully fund the State Aid Distribution Fund’s existing formula level. ■ Oppose attempts to restrict home rule authority granted by local voters. ■ Rely on local elected officials to limit property taxes to responsible levels. ■ Grant no further property tax exemptions. ■ Provide increased state funding for road infrastructure projects. ■ Support state efforts to assist economic development projects.

■ Support efforts to provide property tax relief in a way that strengthens public education and maintains revenue sources for other local political subdivisions. ■ Oppose efforts to change extraterritorial zoning statutes enacted in 2009. ■ Oppose any efforts to restrict local government’s ability to deal with local labor relations issues. ■ Support efforts of the state to improve traffic safety.

■ Support a cooperative public safety training center to include police, fire and highway patrol facilities. Wocken said he made the list of priorities for commissioners to discuss further before the session starts and as legislation evolves. “I want to write these positions down ahead of time so that as we receive bills ... we know what position the board would like us to take,” he said.

Commissioner Josh Askvig asked how the priority list is used. Wocken said the city collects copies of bills introduced and he assigns them to different city departments to study. “This gives them an idea where the commission will be on a bill so they can testify as representing the city of Bismarck,” he said. Wocken said he will update commissioners as bills are introduced and evolve during the 2011 legislative session. Commissioner Parrell Grossman asked that the city add a sentence that supports the state’s Renaissance Zone program. “It has been a great program for downtown Bismarck,” Grossman said. Wocken agreed to amend the list. All five commissioners approved the priorities. (Reach reporter LeAnn Eckroth at 250-8264 or

New Town well plugged after ‘frac’ spill By LAUREN DONOVAN Bismarck Tribune Operators of an oil well that spilled more than 6,000 gallons of chemicallaced fracture water and oil say they got the well flow stopped Tuesday afternoon. Whiting Petroleum Corp. spokesman John Kelso said the well, eight miles northwest of New Town, was temporarily plugged by 3 p.m. The spill started Saturday during the eighth of 22

planned fracture treatments. It requires highly pressurized injections of chemicals and water into the deep well to fracture the oil-bearing formation. Whiting spokesman John Kelso said all the spilled water, mixed with oil, was contained in a lined dike around the well and trucked off-site for disposal. He said weather conditions and subzero temperatures affected efforts to stop the flow, even after the well was shut down.

State oil regulators are investigating the spill, which is the second since September to occur during fracture treatments. A blowout at a Denbury Resources well near Killdeer spilled 2,500 gallons of chemical-laced water and oil, which also was contained within a dike structure. Oil regulators are preparing a complaint of violation against Denbury for failure to use adequate pressure relief valves during the frac-

turing process, a requirement under state rules implemented in 2008. Lynn Helms, director of the Department of Mineral Resources, said it appears the Whiting well experienced a mechanical failure unrelated to pressure valves, though it is too soon to rule out a possible violation. Kelso said the New Town well has been repaired and fracture treatments could resume within two days if weather and regulators permit.

Search uncovers pre-signed pot forms No patient information was filled in MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A search of the offices of an outspoken medical marijuana provider turned up 729 medical marijuana recommendation forms apparently signed by physicians with no patient information filled in, a newspaper reported Wednesday. Several former employees of the Montana Caregivers Network have told police that pot provider Jason Chr ist kept pre-signed forms, and that information was used to obtain a warrant, the Missoulian said. “Christ stated he has physicians sign otherwise blank attending physician statement-new application forms and he keeps them in a locked cabinet in his office to be filled out by approved medical marijuana applicants,” the search warrant documents said, citing a Sept. 17 police interview of Christ. The records also said a documents examiner told investigators that four forms obtained by subpoenaing the Department of Public Health and Human Services contained the name of one doctor but appeared to have been signed by four different people. Christ did not answer a telephone call Wednesday seeking comment from The Associated Press. Police also seized a laptop, two external drives, bank records and other documents during the Nov. 18 search of the Montana Caregivers Network offices. The network has been at the forefront of the Montana medical marijuana issue, with its high-profile traveling screening clinics as well as for arranging video conferences between physicians and patients seeking medical marijuana cards. Christ’s former bookkeeper, Anita Corrigan, told police in March that the business had stacks of blank, pre-signed physician statements. In June, another former employee, Susan Boykin, said she saw at least 1,000 such forms. Both Boykin and Corrigan had been fired by Christ. Information from three other former Christ employees — Nicole Harrington, Tiffany Klang and John Phillips — also was cited in the application for the search warrant. A lawsuit filed against Christ in August by Harrington, Klang and Phillips alleged that in January, Christ started requiring outof-state physicians working with the network to sign blank certifications for medical marijuana cards that would later be filled in by network staff after the doctors met with patients via video conferences. Christ has declined comment on the lawsuit, other than to say the opposing attorney has an interest in other medical marijuana businesses. The lawsuit alleged that in Ma rc h , C h r i s t o rd e re d employees to take all pending and denied patient applications and submit them to the state by filling out the pre-signed applications and saying the patients qualified with a chronic pain diagnosis, even if the patients hadn’t consulted with a doctor. The plaintiffs said that in June, Christ ordered them to fill out and send to the state pre-signed certifications with the names of 84 people who had been rejected for a card after seeing physicians at Montana Caregiver Network events in Kalispell, Helena and Missoula. A copy of an e-mail directive detailing the order was attached to the lawsuit.

Guard returning from Iraq, Afghanistan By CHRISTOPHER BJORKE Bismarck Tribune N i n e No r t h D a k o t a National Guard members deployed overseas were scheduled to be back in the state Wednesday, in time for Thanksgiving, with their comrades to follow in the next few weeks. The Guard announced that about 75 soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan would return home in the coming weeks, including the nine Wednesday if the weather allowed it. Three Guard groups have been on surveillance assignments in the two countries since November 2009. Guard spokeswoman Amy Wieser Willson said the group included 13 guardsmen from Bismarck and 18 from Mandan. “We’ve got some folks sneaking back to North Dakota today,” said Alan Dohrmann, deputy adjutant general, who credited all of the troops for their performance as well as deployment commander Capt. Walyn Vannurden. “He took all of the soldiers over there and is bringing them all home,” he said. Two of the groups were in Afghanistan and one was in Iraq, all operating surveillance equipment protecting bases. Gov. John Hoeven, who was part of the announcement event at the


Gov. John Hoeven, right, and Brig. Gen. Alan Dohrmann announced the return of about 75 North Dakota National Guard soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan on Wednesday afternoon in Bismarck. The soldiers are with the 1st Battalion of the 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. Raymond J. Bohn Armory in Bismarck, said the work has been a long-standing mission for the North Dakota Guard. “They are the eyes and ears, if you will, to make sure our troops know what’s going on,” Dohrmann said.

“It’s a compliment to our guardsmen ... that we have been on this mission for that long.” Dohrmann said he could not be more specific on when all of the soldiers would be home. Cassie Stockwell was at

Wednesday’s announcement but was still waiting to hear when her brother, Sgt. Chris Duran, would be back from his second deployment overseas. “It’s never for certain,” she said. Stockwell attended with her mother, Brenda

Duran of Mandan, and her 21/2-year-old son, Carter, all anxious for Duran’s return. “He sees lots of pictures of Uncle,” Stockwell said. (Reach reporter Christopher Bjorke at 250-8261 or

Mont. native riding high training riding bulls By CHELSEA KROTZER For The Associated Press BILLINGS, Mont. — A brown-and-white bull slams its hooves against the metal chute. Just shy of 2 years old, the bull has no idea what is going on. Mesa Pate, 19, tries to calm it the best she can as she slips a rope around its stomach to secure a blue metal box on the bull’s back. The box, referred to as a dummy, is there to make the bull buck. The chute opens, and the bull’s legs go flying, as does the box. It’s on for about three seconds before Pate disengages it with a remote control. “It’s a training tool, basically,” Pate said. “We take that dummy off of them when they do something right, when they buck hard or you want a bull to turn back and spin, so when they start to do that we trip the dummies off of them.”

It’s definitely not going to be the last, either. Especially since Pate wants her bulls to be successful in her business. Pate started Mesa Bucking Bulls in 2009, but she’s been training bulls for the past two and half years. “I always liked bull riding,” Pate said. “I’ve been in rodeo, rode horses a lot and I just wanted to do it and started buying some bulls and buying cows and it just kind of took off from there.” Two of Pate’s bulls made it to the Professional Bull Riders finals in Las Vegas last month. One that went by the name of Highway 12 was a contender for bull of the year. She got the bull after purchasing some cows from a Associated Press Texas rancher. Injured six

Mesa Pate pats one of the bulls she is training to buck at the Horse Palace near Laurel, Mont., on Nov. 18. Pate raises and trains bulls for rodeos and bull riding competitions.

months before, Highway 12 figured to be good only for breeding. “He said do whatever you want to him; breed him, buck him, sell him, whatever,” Pate said. After giving the bull, nicknamed “Albert,” a year to heal, Pate decided to buck him. “He was outstanding,” Pate said. “He was one of those special bulls ... he was one of those once in every, at least once every once in a while kind of bulls.” Pate has since sold Highway 12 but continues to work hard and hopes to raise, train and enter a bull into the PBR that will take the title.

Pate lives in Texas most of the time but is from Ryegate, where five of her bulls are kept under the watchful eye of her brother. She comes up to Montana to work with the cows during the summer. She has another 20 cows with her in Texas. She’s getting ready to start entering her bulls in PBR events as early as January. “With a bull, I want them to have speed, I want them to kick and they have to turn back,” Pate said. “I like bulls that are hard to ride, but if you are going to ride them they are going to be hard. ... I want them to go out and spin and kick hard and be fast as possible. “I like honest bulls like that,” she said.

This training was a mon- Palace outside Laurel recentumental moment for the five ly. It was the bulls’ first time bulls brought to the Horse being bucked.

Dickens Festival Chairman Paul Schlichting An impact study found that the Dickens Festival attracts about 2,000 visitors each day it is held and generates more than $1 million in revenue for the festival and community businesses. It’s a huge deal for Garrison, but Schlichting said it’s just one of many events, including the Governor’s Cup Walleye Tournament, the Beach Party and others, for which the community is known. “We do what we have to,

Continued from 1B to make this a great place to live,” he said. In past years, the festival has endured and thrived under whatever conditions Mother Nature deals out. It’s only been canceled one day and that was last year, Schlichting said. He expects he and the committee will do some last-minute tinkering — an extension cord here, a heater there — today and Friday. “And then, it’s away we go,” he said.

MINOT (AP) — A woman mauled by two dogs in a Des Lacs home about a week ago remains hospitalized in Minot. The hospital is not releasing information on 46-year-old Lori Amsden’s condition at the request of the family. Authorities say Amsden was attacked by the dogs last Thursday while she was baby-sitting in another couple’s home. The Ward County Sheriff’s Office says the dogs were pit bulls, but owner Anna Heppler says they were a mixed breed. The dogs were euthanized. No charges have been filed in the case but county prosecutors are reviewing it.

A dog’s life, in many ways I have two dogs in my life, both black Labs: one male and one female. Ike was a headstrong male and did what he wanted to, when he wanted to, most of the time. He hated skunks and tolerated me and all in all, was a good hunter and companion.


My latest model is Mercedes, a female Lab. For some inexplicable reasons, she seems to like me a lot. She is a decent bird dog at 3, but still has a few things to work on, like having someone to teach her what she needs to work on. Good dogs, both of them. I miss Ike; I cried like a baby when I saw his collar sitting on the seat beside me on the day he died. Good dogs, like I said, and I love them, but at a certain point, people can go overboard with the whole dog being a part of the family thing. I was reading the latest issue of Delta Waterfowl’s magazine when I came across a few headlines that made me do a doubletake; “Fake testicles for neutered dogs” was the first. Like you, I’m sure, I didn’t think I read it right. According to a story in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, a company is now marketing a product called Neuticles, fake testicles for neutered dogs. The price tags run between $110 and $1,049 for dog owners who may be worried about the self-esteem of their pooch. Whose self-esteem? Then there is the story about the condo group in Baltimore that is doing its very best CSI impersonation. The condo board is trying to get to the bottom of the mystery of whose dog is leaving behind doo-doo. The board is considering charging a $50 fee to build a DNA database of all the dogs in the condo. On top of that, there would a $10 a month fee for collecting the doo and sending it to a laboratory for analysis. A $500 fine could be in the future of those who don’t scoop the ... you know what ... of their doggy. That would solve the mystery, Scooby Doo. And if you do have too much doo to handle, a guy in Massachusetts can take it off your hands, or at least the bottoms of your shoes. A guy there got an idea after visiting India, where methane digesters are used to cook food. So he’s asking patrons of a doggy park to scoop the doo into a 500-gallon tank, then give the wheel a spin to mix the doo and water. The hope is that as the waste is converted into methane it can power a light on a post. Waste not, watt not, I guess. As you are sitting around the table this Thanksgiving telling stories about this year’s deer hunt, keep these tales in mind. A 15-year-old Maine boy bagged a three-beamed, 20point non-typical whitetail buck. The boy has already been offered five grand to sell the troContinued on 2C


Shot of a lifetime 16-year-old nabs dandy 6x6 non-typical whitetail By BRIAN GEHRING Bismarck Tribune KIEF — A wry smile comes across Jacy Hausauer’s face when she tells the story of taking her first whitetail back at age 14. That buck, taken two seasons ago, was not a monster by any stretch, but a decent 4x4 nonetheless. It was the story behind it that brings a grin to her face. Hunting with her sister, Kayla, and her brother-in-law, Travis Martin, she earned a rather dubious nickname after the hunt. Jacy’s shot at the buck went low, but she got the bounce to go in as the bullet ricocheted and hit the buck in the lung, dropping it a few yards from where it stood; hence the nickname, “Ricochet.” This year’s hunt went a little more according to plan. The sophomore at McClusky High School harvested a dandy nontypical 6x6 whitetail buck on her family farm in northern Sheridan County. The buck with a split G2 rough scored 130 on the Boone and Crockett Club and had an outside spread of 17½ inches. Hausauer wasn’t able to hunt last season because she was recovering from being thrown from her horse. Barrel racing and poles are just a few new activities she has added to her repertoire. She just wrapped up her sophomore year of volleyball and is looking forward to basketball season with the Turtle Lake-Mercer-McClusky Trojans, a 45-mile one-way road trip to a home game for her parents, Steve and DelRae. That’s on top of serving as president of her FFA chapter, being in band and choir, helping out with her church’s Christmas program, honor student — you get the picture — a typical teenager. Jacy’s family operates a grain and cattle farm, 120 head at present, and she is every much a farm hand as were her three older sisters. “Jacy started to run the combine when she was a seventhgrader and she almost takes over the fall herd,” her father said. In a class of eight at her high school, Jacy took hunter safety courses as a seventh-grader and had the top score of those she tested with, perhaps bruising the egos of some of the guys in the class. Jacy became interested in deer hunting through her sister, Kayla, who hunted with her husband. She started by riding along in the pickup, then worked her way

Sixteen-year-old Jacy Hausauer took this non-typical 6x6 whitetail on her family farm in Sheridan County the second weekend of the season.

“He was going to run right over the top of me. He was so close I couldn’t see anything in my scope.” Jacy Hausauer up to being a brush-beater. “They always needed walkers,” Jacy said with a grin, “so that was me.” Sitting around the breakfast bar in her kitchen last weekend, Jacy talked about growing up loving the farm life. A big part of that is the connection with the outdoors. On some hunts, she would ride horse across the expansive hills and through draws that otherwise would take a small army to work. Her father, Steve, is not a hunter, but with three older sisters — Callissa, 27, Kayla, 25, and

Ashley, 21, hunting and fishing were kind of the norm. Right about then, the kitchen door swung open and sister Kayla stepped into the kitchen. “Right there walking through the door is my inspiration,” Jacy said. That, and her uncle in Montana is a former outfitter who guided hunts in the Absarakee Mountains on mules. This past summer, she spend two weeks in the mountains, hauling her four horses out to Lake Favonius near Big Timber to get them in shape for barrels. Being on the combine, driving

truck and working cattle — Jacy takes the spring sports season off for calving — she gets to see how the deer move and is able to pattern them. On the second Saturday of the deer gun season, Jacy said her dad was combining sunflowers when he kicked out the 6x6. She said she figured the buck would want to go back into the same field that night. So she took the .243 Tikka she had bought this summer and went back to the sunflowers. Jacy said the gun is the same model her cousin Alicia shoots. “The only difference is I went with the stainless steel barrel; but we both have pink slings,” she said. Around 4 p.m. that Saturday, Jacy was at the edge of the sunflower field and waited. Off to one side was a singlerow one tree shelter belt. A doe came out, Jacy said, with the buck not far behind. Kneeling, Jacy said the doe turned but the buck, nose to the ground, was coming right at her. “He was going to run right over the top of me,” she said. “He was so close I couldn’t see anything in my scope.” The first shot missed its mark but Jacy said she stood up, steadied her Tikka, squeezed the trigger, hitting the buck in the neck as it was quartering away. “I had to call our hired man, Jeff Engel, to help me load it in the pickup,” she said. Jacy said both her parents teased her, saying she may have to go a long time before equaling and bettering this year’s buck. And when friends and classmates learned of the dandy buck, Jacy said the reaction was mostly the same. “They’d say, ‘Holy cow, you didn’t.’” Then the proof. “I told them I did ... and sent them the picture.” (Reach reporter Brian Gehring BRIAN GEHRING/Tribune at 250-8254 or brian.gehring At home, Jacy compares the antlers of this year’s buck, at right, to her first buck two season ago.

Man held for trial in Pa. game warden slaying G E T T Y S BU RG , Pa . (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been ordered to stand trial in the shooting death of a Pennsylvania game warden nearly two weeks ago. Gettysburg District Judge Mark Beauchat o rd e re d C h r i s t o p h e r Lynn Johnson returned to prison without bail after a preliminary hearing Wednesday. The 27-year-old Johnson is charged with criminal homicide and weapons and hunting violations in the death of Wildlife Conservation Officer David Grove on the night of Nov. 11. State troopers testified that they recovered at least 25 shell casings from the scene of a gun battle between the two. It began after Grove stopped Johnson’s pickup truck while investigating a report of spotlight deer poaching. Grove was the first Pennsylvania game warden killed in the line of duty in 95 years.

OUTDOORS DIGEST With temperatures Darkhouse expected to reach the upper this weekend, anglers spearfishing is set 20s will be enticed to venture out on an area lake. But Boldt to open soon says it is too early.

Additional opportunities highlight this winter’s darkhouse spearfishing season, since more lakes have been added to open waters. However, Patterson Reservoir (Dickinson Reservoir) in Stark County has been removed. Carlson Lakes ( Ward County), Gravel Lake (Rolette County), West Napoleon Lake (Logan County) and all waters open to public fishing in Ramsey County have been added to the list of lakes open for darkhouse spearfishing. North Dakota’s darkhouse spearfishing season opens on most state waters Dec. 1, with the exception of Spiritwood Lake, which opens Jan. 1. The season runs through March 15. Legal fish are northern pike and nongame species. Darkhouse spearing is allowed for all residents with a valid fishing license and for residents under the age of 16. Nonresidents may darkhouse spearfish in North Dakota if they are from states that offer the same privilege for North Dakota residents. All individuals who participate in darkhouse spearfishing must register with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department prior to participating. Registration is available at the department’s website,, or through any Game and Fish Department office. Winter access difficulties in 2009-10 were reflected in the number of darkhouse spearfishing participants. Although the number of registrants remained relatively stable, overall harvest last winter, when nearly 700 participants speared more than 2,300 pike, was the second lowest on record. Lake Laretta (Nelson County), Devils Lake (Ramsey/Benson County) and Buffalo Lodge Lake (McHenry County) were the top three lakes for harvest. A list of waters open to darkhouse spearfish can found on the Game and Fish Department website,

Ice conditions in North Dakota are still unsafe North Dakota Game and Fish Department water safety coordinator Nancy Boldt advises winter anglers to remain patient this Thanksgiving weekend because current ice conditions are not safe enough to support much weight.

“We’ve only had about a week of temperatures that are conducive to formulating ice, and that is not enough time,” Boldt said. “ We need a consistent stretch of several more days of freezing temperatures to form solid ice.” Boldt recommends anglers and trappers study ice conditions before accessing any of North Dakota’s frozen waters, and strongly suggests visiting with locals, including other anglers and people at local bait shops, before going on any lake, especially one that is unfamiliar. Some tips to be aware of are: Snow insulates ice, hampering solid ice formation, and makes it difficult to check thickness. Snow also hides the blemishes, such as cracked, weak and open water areas. Avoid cracks, pressure ridges, slushy or darker areas that signal thinner ice. The same goes for ice that forms around partially submerged trees, brush, embankments or other structures. Ice thickness is not consistent and can vary significantly even in a small area. Ice shouldn’t be judged by appearance alone. Anglers should drill test holes as they make their way out on the lake, and an ice chisel should be used to check ice thickness while moving around. Daily temperature changes cause ice to expand and contract, affecting its strength. T h e f o l l ow i n g m i n i mums are recommended for travel on clear-blue lake ice formed under ideal conditions. However, early in the winter it’s a good idea to double these figures to be safe: 4 inches for a group walking single file; 6 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle; 8-12 inches for an automobile; and 12-15 inches for a pickup/truck. If someone breaks through the ice, call 911 i m m e d i a t e l y. R e s c u e attempts should employ a long pole, board, rope, blanket or snowmobile suit. If that’s not possible, throw the victim a life jacket, empty water jug or other buoyant object. Go to the victim as a last resort, but do this by forming a human chain where rescuers lie on the ice with each person holding the feet of the person in front. To treat hypothermia, replace wet clothing with dry clothing and immediately transport victim to a hospital.

Time tested tasty tidbits from the trail November, for most hunters, never lasts long enough, but many look forward to the memories and taste of deer season until the following year. Each hunting season yields an abundance of sausage, jerky, pepper sticks and other wild game delicacies. Just as hunters are always searching for new gear and gadgets to aid in the hunt, similar time is invested in testing and tasting new recipes and sharing the harvest with friends and family. With ample game and hunting opportunities nowadays, imaginative chefs and connoisseurs have created new and often improved ways of preparing wild game. Some, such as a favorite coot recipe, will probably never convince me that, “you can hardly tell it’s coot.” Others, such as deep frying a big Christmas goose in a propane-fired turkey cooker, or charcoalgrilling a bacon-wrapped duck breast, are sure to find me searching for a fork. Maybe all this innovation in wild game cooking is inspired by boredom with the time-worn recipe of: Take whatever wild


game meat you have, mix it in with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup and dump it all into a crock pot set on low and let it cook all day. While this is a timetested method to produce a worthy meal, wild game has so much more potential. “Edible” is a fairly low standard when “Can we have this again next week?” is usually possible. Growing up at our house, sandhill crane in mushroom soup was and still is edible. Crane breasts

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is setting aside 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a “critical habitat” for polar bears, an action that could add restrictions to future offshore drilling for oil and gas. The total, which includes large areas of sea ice off the Alaska coast, is about 13,000 square miles, or 8.3 million acres, less than in a preliminary plan released last year. Tom Strickland, assistant Interior secretary for fish, wildlife and parks, said the designation would help polar bears stave off extinction, recognizing that the greatest threat is the melting of Arctic sea ice caused by climate change. “This critical habitat designation enables us to work with federal partners to ensure their actions within its boundaries do not harm polar bear populations,” Strickland said. “We will continue to work toward comprehensive strategies for the long-term survival of this iconic species.” Designation of critical habitat does not in itself block economic activity or other development, but requires federal officials to consider whether a pro-

posed action would adversely affect the polar bear’s habitat and interfere with its recovery. Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell and the state’s oil and gas industry had complained that the preliminary plan released last year was too large.

freezer, the more likely it is to develop freezer burn, which is irreparable. If you have more than you can eat, make plans now to offer it to others. And in the future, remember to keep wild game meat clean and cold. The sooner you accomplish these two tasks, the odds of tainted or spoiled meat decrease. Field dress birds as soon as possible, and if the weather is warm, put them on ice for the trip home. One last personal note as I recall a warm, almost hot deer season a few years back. I saw a truck with a stack of deer riding on one of those bumperbuddy hitch extension systems, and I couldn’t help but wonder how much dirt and dust, not to mention exhaust accumulated on those deer on that warm day. Exposing any meat to exhaust fumes and road rubbish kicked up by tires is probably not going to enhance the flavor.

Lakes getting hotter, more than the air By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer WASHINGTON — A firstof-its-kind NASA study is finding nice cool lakes are heating up — even faster than air. Two NASA scientists used satellite data to look at 104 large inland lakes around the world and found that on average they have warmed 2 degrees since 1985. That’s about 21/2 times the increase in global temperatures in the same time period. Russia’s Lake Ladoga and America’s Lake Tahoe are warming significantly and the most, said study coauthor Simon Hook, a scientist at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, Calif. Tahoe has heated up by 3 degrees since

1985, while Ladoga has been even hotter, going up by 4 degrees. The study was published Wednesday in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. Hook and his colleague used several satellites and looked at thermal infrared images of the lakes in winter and summer. They also confirmed the numbers by comparing them to buoy data. “It fits with what we see with air temperature measurements,” Hook said. “We were surprised that in some places the lakes appear to be warming more than the air temperature.” The next question to look at is why the lakes seem to be warming faster

than the air or land, Hook said. One reason could be the way lakes warm — in a more gradual manner than land but also slower to cool. NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt, who was not part of the study, said the research made sense and adds another independent measuring system to show that the world is warming up. Eleven different indicators — including air temperature, humidity, snow cover, ocean heat content — show statistically significant manmade global warming, while

no environmental measurements show otherwise, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Warming lakes is No. 12 and “another brick in the wall,” said University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver. Overall, 41 lakes increased temperatures in a statistically significant way, with another 59 individually warming but not enough to be considered significant. Only four showed temperature drops, but not significantly, Hook said.

cut thin and providing the main ingredient in stir fry is a much more pleasing dish. Wild game has its own flavor and taste. Some of the best recipes I’ve tried bring out this flavor or enhance it. On the other hand, many of us occasional cooks, myself included, are often guilty of trying to disguise wild game flavor with an array of sauces and spices. In books and on television and Internet sites, wild game gourmet chefs provide all sorts of recipes and advice for preparing whatever you bring home from a day’s hunt.

Hummingbirds don’t show their ‘true colors’ Among a number of opportunities I count as blessings is the privilege of going to Honduras once or twice a year to work at the teaching hospital in the national capital of Tegucigalpa to teach their young surgeons in training. As is my habit, I managed to slip in a little bird watching while I was down there. While my passion is owl photography, I do pay attention to other birds as well. As do many other people, I find the hummingbird especially fascinating. In North Dakota, we only have one hummingbird species that we see regularly: the ruby-throated hummingbird. Honduras, however, has more than 50 species, including one species all its own, found nowhere else on Earth: the Honduran emerald. I have not yet seen that one as it requires a bit of a focused expedition to find it. On one of my trips, I managed to snap some photos of the garnetthroated variety.

dark or even black as all light is reflected in directions away from your vantage point. However, if the blue light is reflected in your direction, such as when the hummingbird turns to face you, you will see a brilliant shimmering metallic looking blue. Most hummingbirds possess at least patches of iridescent feathers, usually on their throat or forehead. Some hummingbirds are covered with iridescence. They use these feathers in a variety of ways. They may use them to startle or frighten or intimidate enemies. They will fly right up to some predators and “flash” them like little neon sparklers to confuse and bewilder them. They also will flash each other either to impress or Submitted photo intimidate each other A garnet-throated hummingbird shows its iridescent colors. depending on whether their intent is to woo a Hummingbirds appear spectrum of light not all in blue light from all direcfemale or scare off another to be among the most col- the same direction. tions into one straight for- male from their favorite orful birds on Earth, but Not only that, but the ward beam. patch of flowers. actually they possess only feathers are built in such a If you look at them from The garnet-throated shades of white, gray, way that they can collect most directions, this patch hummingbird is a bit of a green and brown.

I don’t know if other species of hummingbirds are intimidated by the dazzling kaleidoscope of colors or by the garnetthroated hummingbirds very aggressive behavior. Our ruby-throated hummingbird is not as “colorful” as the garnetthroated hummingbird, but it is a real beauty nevertheless. If you have ever had the opportunity to see a real ruby sparkle in the sunlight, it simply doesn’t hold a candle to the brilliance of a male rubythroated hummingbird’s throat caught just right in the same light. They are gone for the winter now but our hummingbirds will be back next summer. If you have trumpet flowers or canna lilies, spend a little time sitting by them next summer and see if you don’t get flashed or bedazzled by one of these little gems.

Obama spares turkeys a ‘shellacking’ By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press WASHINGTON — Barack Obama performed an annual rite of presidents on Wednesday, pardoning a pair of turkeys on Thanksgiving eve and cracking jokes about the competition that brought them to his famous doorstep. “For the record, let me say that it feels pretty good to stop at least one shellacking this November,� Obama said in the White House Rose Garden, where he was flanked by daughters Malia and Sasha. A “shellacking� is how Obama described the beating Democrats suffered in elections earlier this month; the party lost con-

side Modesto, Calif., were plucked from a group of 25 birds during a competition “that involved strutting their stuff before a panel of judges, with an eclectic mix of music playing in the background,� Obama said. He called it a “turkey version� of “Dancing with the Stars,� the program that crowned its newest winner Tuesday night. “Except the stakes for the contestants was much higher,� Obama said, laughing. “Only one pair would survive and win the big prize: Life.� The president wished America’s families, including many buffeted by the economic slump, a safe and happy holiday. He also

thanked the men and women of the U.S. military for serving “bravely and selflessly� in places far away from home. Afterward, Apple and Cider were to be driven to the home of George Washington, the nation’s first president, in nearby Mount Vernon, Va. For the past five years, the presidentially pardoned turkeys had been sent to Disneyland in California, upsetting animal rights activists. Later Wednesday, Obama and his family were to deliver two turkeys less fortunate than Apple and Cider to Martha’s Table, a local charity that feeds the hungry and provides other community services.

Odds and ends ■ Belle Vernon, Pa.

Lottery seller is a winner

A shop owner in western Pennsylvania has sold himself a winning $1.8 million lottery ticket — and as the seller of the ticket, he’ll get an extra $10,000. Ron Rea owns Tobacco World stores in Uniontown and Belle Vernon. He bought the winning ticket for the Nov. 18 Match 6 Lotto drawing at the Belle Vernon store. Rea says he doesn’t play the lottery’s Daily Number, but he spends about $20 a day on tickets for games with higher odds. “If you hit, your life’s changed,” he said. Rea’s ticket was worth $1,782,432. A lottery spokeswoman confirmed Rea’s claim to the winning ticket. The 68-year-old Rea says the winnings will help him and his wife of 38 years, Rita, build their retirement funds. ■ Rudd, Iowa


Northern Iowa authorities cleaned up a slippery mess after a tipped semitrailer spilled Jell-O and pudding cups across a county road. The Floyd County sheriff’s office says 52 pallets of gelatin and pudding fell from the trailer when its top ripped open near Rudd early Tuesday. It took crews three hours to clean up the debris. The sheriff’s office says 39-year-old semitrailer driver Eric Young of Charleston, S.C., wasn’t able to make a turn and went into the ditch where the rig rolled onto its side. Young and 32year-old passenger Martin Brandon, of Bridgeport, Conn., suffered minor injuries. Damage to the semitrailer is estimated at $50,000. ■ San Jose, Calif.

The new script comes from Whit Anderson, a 29-yearold actress-turned-writer. The original 1992 movie starred Kristy Swanson as a teenager who learns it’s her destiny to battle vampires.

NYU artist gets camera implanted in his head By ULA ILNYTZKY Associated Press NEW YORK — A New York University arts professor might not have eyes on the back of his head, but he’s coming pretty close. Wafaa Bilal, a visual artist widely recognized for his interactive and performance pieces, had a small digital camera implanted in the back of his head — all in the name of art. Bilal said Tuesday that he underwent the procedure for an art project that was commissioned by a new museum in Doha, Qatar. Titled “The 3rd I,” it is one of 23 contemporary works commissioned for the opening of the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art on

Associated Press

Wafaa Bilal holds the prototype of a digital camera that he had implanted in the back of his head, in New York on Aug. 24. Dec. 30. The exhibition is titled “Told/Untold/Retold.” “I am going about my


daily life as I did before the procedure,” the Iraqi-born artist said in a statement. Bilal, who is teaching three courses this semester at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, will wear the camera for one year. It is 2 inches in diameter and less than an inch thick. The project will raise “important social, aesthetic, political, technological and artistic questions,” he said. He declined to say when the camera was implanted or other details of the art installation, saying it “will be revealed to the public as part of the museum preview on Dec. 15” and on a website to be launched on the same day, He said he chose to have it put in the back of the head as an allegorical statement

about the things we don’t see and leave behind. How it all fits together is still a bit of a mystery. The camera will capture his everyday activities at one-minute intervals 24 hours a day and then be transmitted to monitors at the museum, said curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, who commissioned Bilal on behalf of the museum. “He doesn’t have to alter his lifestyle or what he does. In principal, he’s moving on with his life,” Bardaouil told The Associated Press from Doha. “It will be a three-dimensional, real space-and-time experience. Once the piece is revealed, you’ll realize that the camera is only one aspect of the work and there are

aspects as important that will be experienced.” The project has raised challenging questions for NYU, the nation’s largest private school with about 44,000 students. “As a school of the arts, a school whose mission is to educate artists, we place a high value on his right to free expression in his creative work as an artist ...,” NYU said in a statement. “We also take seriously the privacy issues his project raises, its impact on our students, and the importance of preserving trust in the pedagogical relationship between a faculty member and students.” NYU said it has had numerous “constructive and productive” conversations

with the artist and was continuing “to discuss with him the right mechanism to ensure that his camera will not take pictures in NYU buildings.” But a number of students said they were not overly concerned about their privacy being violated. “I don’t really know what you would be protecting them (students) from, what would be happening in the classroom that couldn’t be shared,” said Erin Wahed, 22, who graduated in May with a BFA in photography but did not take any of Bilal’s classes. Bilal said “The 3rd I” builds on his other body of work that combines performance art, digital and body art and photography “into a unique conceptual piece.”

What are some of the changes for the 2011 Medicare Part D drug coverage? There are some changes this year to the Part D benefits, but fewer than previous years. The maximum deductibles for plans remains the same as last year at $310.00 The start of the donut hole has Pat Brunelle only increased from $2830 this year to $2840 for next year. This is total drug cost amounts. The big change is that there will finally be some coverage in the donut hole. This coverage will continue to expand each subsequent year until the donut hole is phased out by 2020. The donut hole coverage this year for most part D participants will be 7% of generics and 50% brand discounts provided by drug manufacturers for brand drugs. The amount of drug plans to choose from decreased to 33 plans for our region. The open enrollment period is from Nov 15 thru Dec 31. Part D participants should have their plans reviewed every year by a qualified individual. The cheaper the premium doesn’t necessarily mean those plans are the best for an individual.

Q: A:

At what age should my baby receive his first eye exam? Though a baby’s eyes are checked at birth for infections or structural problems, you should schedule your baby for an exam by an optometrist at six months of age. Although a baby Douglas Litchfield, M.D. can’t provide any subjective input at this age, the doctor can perform tests that will provide information about the child’s sight. Here is what to expect at your infant’s first eye exam: • The doctor assesses the baby’s vision. Does the infant react to light shone in the eyes or follow a moving toy? • The doctor temporarily dilates the pupils with dilating drops. The eye doctor will test the baby’s eye for a refractive error such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. • The doctor looks inside the baby’s eyes. With an ophthalmoscope, a lighted instrument with a magnifying glass, the doctor will assess the overall health of the baby’s eyes and detect any early signs of trouble.

Q: A:

What is the buyer really buying? What the buyer is really buying is the future income of the business. However, too many buyers seem to have lost sight of this. They commission extensive “due diligence” on the business they are considering buying with an emphasis on the historic performance, particularly the financial performance. Yes, this is important to verify the quoted sales and Steven Ilse security of tenure. But historic results are no guarantee of future performance and the truly entrepreneurial buyer will be focused on how to increase sales and profitability, how to attract more customers, how to improve marketing strategies, and how to maximize the value of the business. As Albert Einstein famously said: “ Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” In assessing a business opportunity many of the key factors will not be found in the financial statements.

What are some SOBER TIPS for the holidays? The Holiday Season can be a difficult time for those in recovery. And yet, recovery is about renewing relationships and returning to a full and active life. Here are some SOBER TIPS to help Kurt Snyder, insure a safe and sober Holiday Season: MMGT, LAC, LSW Keep a realistic attitude by staying in the present and not dwelling on the past. Plan extra AA or NA activities. Skip any drinking occasion that you are uneasy about, or take someone from AA/NA with you. Keep your AA/NA or sponsor’s telephone numbers with you at all times, and call someone if you have thoughts of using.

Q: A:

Of The Smile Center Are electric toothbrushes better for my teeth than manual ones? Electric toothbrushes were first created for patients with limited motor skills and are generally more effective than manual ones. The two types of power toothbrushes on the market are rechargeable electric and battery-powered.

Aaron D. Johnson, DMD, PLLC

Rechargeable electric toothbrushes plug into the wall to recharge and feature advanced technology. They ensure proper brushing technique by providing the cleaning action while the user needs only to guide it along the surfaces of the teeth. Battery-powered toothbrushes require users to provide all or most of the brushing action. It is similar to a manual toothbrush, but vibrates to provide a bit of extra cleaning action. Whichever type of toothbrush you use, remember to check the effectiveness of your technique with your dentist or hygienist.

Even in tough times, reasons to give thanks Dear Readers: Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you are fortunate enough to be spending the holiday with family and friends, and that you remembered those who are alone today and would love to be part of your family on this occasion. For those readers who are spending the day volunteering at shelters and soup kitchens, bless you for your kind hearts and generosity of spirit. Many families have had a difficult year, and it may be hard to think of things to be grateful for, so we have provided some reminders: “Ev e r y d a y T h a n k s g i v i n g” (Author Unknown) Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings each morning, thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf. Even though I keep my eyes tightly closed against the morning light as long as possible, thank you, Lord, that I can see. There are many


By PHILLIP ALDER Some 20 years ago, Peter Winkler wrote several articles pointing out ways in which players could bid and signal cryptically. Winkler has now padded out these articles in “Bridge at the Enigma Club” (Master Point Press). Suppose a hypothetical declarer ruffs a spade-ace opening lead. The defenders know who holds the lowest unplayed spade. That defender makes, say, upside-down signals while his partner uses normal signals. These signals are now illegal worldwide, but the jury is still out about cryptic bidding. This deal from the book offers one example. If North’s two-no-trump response were the Jacoby Forcing Raise, South would rebid four diamonds, showing an excellent 5-5. Now North would probably control-bid (cue-bid) five clubs. South would continue with five diamonds, and North would sign off in five spades. Then it would be simplicity itself for West to lead the heart king. East would encourage, take the second round with his ace, and give his partner a heart ruff for down one. Suppose, instead, that two no-trump guarantees exactly one of the top three spade honors. Then South, with two top spade honors and slam interest, can make a four-level asking bid. If North has the spade ace, South jumps in the suit where he needs a control — as in the given auction. If North has the spade king, South bids the suit over the one he needs controlled. And if North has the spade queen, South bids the suit under the one he needs held. North and South know which suit is being asked about, but West does not. Even if this does not appeal to you, the deals, mostly advanced, are still interesting.


who are blind. Even though I huddle in my bed and put off the effort of rising, thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden. Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned and tempers are short, thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely. Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced, thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine of my job is often monotonous, thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job. Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest, thank you, Lord, for the gift of life. “Thanksgiving Prayer” (Author Unknown) We come to this table today, O Lord, humble and thankful and glad. We thank Thee first for the great miracle of life, for the exaltation of being human, for the capacity to love. We thank Thee for joys both great and simple — For wonder, dreams and hope; For the newness of each day; For laughter and song and a merry heart; For compassion waiting within to be kindled; For the forbearance of friends and the smile of a stranger;

For the arching of the earth and trees and heavens and the fruit of all three; For the wisdom of the old; For the courage of the young; For the promise of the child; For the strength that comes when needed; For this family united here today. Of those to whom much is given, much is required. May we and our children remember this. Amen. “Things to Be Thankful For” (Author Unknown) Be thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means you have enough to eat. Be thankful for the mess you clean up after a party, because it means you have been surrounded by friends. Be thankful for the taxes you pay, because it means that you’re employed. Be thankful that your lawn

needs mowing and your windows need fixing, because it means you have a home. Be thankful for your heating bill, because it means you are warm. Be thankful for the laundry, because it means you have clothes to wear. Be thankful for the space you find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means you can walk. Be thankful for the lady who sings off-key behind you in church, because it means you can hear. Be thankful people complain about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech. Be thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means you’re alive.

Heart patient has endured years of worry DEAR DR. GOTT: I have never seen a column about someone who has a 100 percent blocked artery. I was diagnosed in 2000, after an angiogram, as having a right artery that was 100 percent blocked. I was told by the surgeon not to eat more than three eggs a week. I’ve had to find all information on my condition all by myself. I watch my saturated fat and cholesterol intakes and walk two miles every other day. I’ve been to the VA doctors. They say whatever I’m doing, I should keep it up. I have no symptoms, none. When you quit smoking, they have classes and support. When you get cancer, they have classes and sup-


port. When you have diabetes, they have classes and support. When you have heart disease, there is silence. I don’t know what or how much to eat. Can I run or lift weights? I’m taking a baby aspirin and 40 milligrams of Zocor. I’ve gone 10 years with worrying and waiting for the big one. What’s your advice? DEAR READER:My initial guess is that your doctor

either misspoke or you heard him incorrectly. I don’t doubt you one bit, but I think you were misled. I’ve not known anyone with even potential cardiac problems who was not referred to a cardiologist for regular follow-up. The decision of whether to perform bypass surgery or angioplasty would have depended on your general overall condition and the extent of the heart disease. That leads me to believe you were not a candidate for surgery at that time. Part of heart health is exercise and a healthful diet. Therefore, include fresh fruits and steamed vegetables, broiled fish and chicken. If you are a beef eater, cut away the fat prior to cooking

HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY ARIES (March 21-April 19). You just don’t want the same things you used to want. You’ll be letting go of old hang-ups about money. When you no longer care about worldly trappings, they come more easily to you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your love of beauty, art and aesthetics will be pronounced. Presentation matters to you. How something is presented almost matters more to you than what the thing actually is — almost but not quite. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a passion stirring in your soul. This might have to do with a project at work that fully engages you. Or, perhaps it’s that you love a certain person too much to be just a friend. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Remember how a certain relationship seemed to come together magically? Remember all the fireworks that went off? Maybe things have cooled down since then, but you can bring back the fire. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When other people get scared, they back off. You, however, have a different approach. You ask questions and get a dialogue started. You investigate and pinpoint the problem.

You have all sorts of ideas popping into your head, and a lot of them don’t make a great deal of sense to you right now. Maybe this is prescient information. Make a prediction. Later, you can test your accuracy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are in charge of your own emotions. Do not let anyone lead you away from feeling as good as you

You make your requests with a good dose of sweetness, and you get exactly what you want and need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You’ll take turns being a worker, serving your loved ones and being the royalty who gets served. Both modes will be enjoyable for you, though serving others is probably your favorite. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Why do the hard jobs fall to you? Because your speed and efficiency are unparalleled. In fact, in your hands, these jobs can’t really be called “hard.” You’ll work with a smile on your face. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

and X-ray testing. After all this time, I am sure you are convinced there is an underlying cardiac issue. Request a referral to a cardiologist. Present your problems and ask for answers. If additional testing is called for, have it scheduled. If something comes to light, pursue it. If not, get on with your life and put this 10-year nightmare behind you.

Court upholds $58M award against Wyeth CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Supreme C o u r t o n We d n e s d a y upheld a $58 million award to three women who claimed their breast cancer was caused by hormone replacement drugs made by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. In a unanimous ruling, justices rejected arguments by the company that the damages awarded in 2007 to Arlene Rowatt of Incline Village, Pamela Forrester of Yerington and Jeraldine Scofield of Fallon were excessive. “The evidence supported the jury’s findings that Wyeth was negligent in failing to conduct appropriate studies on breast cancer and that it concealed material facts about its products’ safety,” Justice Michael Cherry wrote

in the 47-page opinion. Forrester and Rowatt have since died, making the ruling “bittersweet,” said Peter Wetherall, one of their attorneys. “We hope they’re smiling down on this,” he said. The case is one of thousands pending against Wyeth involving Premarin, an estrogen replacement, and Prempro, a combination of estrogen and progestin. The drugs are prescribed to women to ease menopause symptoms. New York-based Pfizer Inc. bought Wyeth for $68 billion in 2009. “We believe that we had valid grounds for appeal ... We are now considering all of our legal options,” Pfizer spokesman Chris Loder told The Associated Press.

A great sporting weekend

Woods tries to move on One year after Tiger’s scandal

Minnesota sports fan gets two great days of the action I was looking forward to last weekend for a long time. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to my wife, Summer. It all started in the summer when her favorite Minnesota Wild player, Derek Boogaard, was traded from Minnesota to the New York Rangers. New York only visits the Wild one time each season, so Summer had the great idea of going to that game. As soon as she could, she got tickets, which turned out to be on Saturday, Nov. 20. Then Summer’s brain started churning. She had never been to a Minnesota Vikings game, so she checked the schedule. Sure enough, Minnesota was at home the next day against the Green Bay Packers. As soon as she could, she bought tickets for her first NFL game. After I told my brother about our weekend plans, he had a great idea: See if the University of Minnesota football and hockey teams were at home that weekend. The plan was to watch a Gophers hockey game Friday night, a Minnesota football game Saturday afternoon, the Wild game Saturday night and the Vikings game on Sunday. Luckily for our wallets, the Gophers hockey team was on the road and the football team had an off week. I don’t think my wife would have liked to watch all four events anyway. She’s a good sports fan, but not that good. We got to the Wild game early enough to get a free Marian Gaborik bobblehead doll. Then Summer bought a State of Hockey flag, Wild claw and a Boogaard bobblehead, all before we found our seats. We sat in the second to the last row at the Xcel Energy Center, but there is no bad seat in that house. Trust me, I’ve sat in a lot of them. The Wild got crushed by the Rangers 5-2, but at least we got to hear the goal song. On Sunday we woke up to a coat of ice on the Twin Cities, and that had me worried about whether or not we were going to make it back to Bismarck on Sunday night. We drove to downtown Minneapolis and proceeded to the Metrodome for only the second NFL game of my life. We saw plenty of tailgaters and Summer thought it would be fun to do that just once. We found our seats in the upper deck, 25 rows up. There weren’t that many behind us, but they were still good seats. The game wasn’t very good. The Packers dominated, which stunk because we were surrounded by Green Bay fans. I think I might be bad luck for the Wild and Vikings, but it was still a great weekend for a Minnesota sports fan.

Tiger Woods did not win a tourney for the first time in his career.


WILL KINCAID/Tribune file photo

St. Mary’s Jon Preszler made the Class AA all-state first-team defense for the second consecutive season.

Senior CB leads six Saints on all-state team By MICHAEL WEBER Bismarck Tribune Jon Preszler’s first season as a starting cornerback in 2009 ended with a Class AA all-state firstteam selection. Hi s s e c o n d s e a s o n ended the same way. The 6-foot-3, 195pound senior defensive back from St. Mary’s is one of three Saints who were named to the 2010 Class AA all-state first team. The others are offensive lineman Michael Berger and defensive lineman Alex Herold, both juniors. Preszler had a teamhigh seven interceptions in 2010, giving him 12 in two seasons. “Jon had a knack for

finding the ball and making a play on it,” said St. Mary’s coach Dan Smrekar, whose team compiled an 8-2 record and finished in a first-place tie with Devils Lake in the West Region. “He was an excellent cover man on the strong side for us for two seasons, and he was also very good against the run. Just a solid defensive player.” Preszler also became a big threat on offense his senior year. He caught 32 passes for 542 yards and seven touchdowns. He led the Saints in all three categories. “We were a very good passing team this year and Jon was a big reason why,” Smrekar said. “He’s a big kid, bigger than most

defensive backs and that along with good speed made him difficult to cover. He got open and made the big catches.” Berger, a 200-pound tackle, was an anchor on the Saints’ offensive line. “Michael is only 200 pounds, but he played tackle on the strong side and we liked to run behind him,” Smrekar said. “He works extremely hard, and it paid off.” Herold, a 6-4, 225pound tackle, was a force on the defensive line. He averaged an astounding two quarterback sacks and two tackles for loss per game. Herold also returned an interception for a touchdown and recorded a safety.

“Opposing teams had to worry most about Alex,” Smrekar said. “He’s a big, strong kid with great quickness. We slanted him a lot. He made so many plays in the other team’s backfield.” Junior quarterbacksafety Preston Tescher was a first-team at-large selection. In his first season as a starting quarterback, Tescher completed 64 of 117 passes for 814 yards and 12 touchdowns, and carried 77 times for 450 markers and eight scores. He put up impressive numbers despite missing nearly three regular-season games because of a broken wrist. Tescher was also a standout defender. Continued on 3D

Favre-free Packers

Favre’s freedom Frazier welcomes input of veteran quarterback By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Brett Favre figures to have at least a little more freedom in the Minnesota Vikings offense, now that the head coach he sometimes clashed with over strategy and play calls has been fired. Interim replacement Leslie Frazier, who took over this week for Brad Childress, said Wednesday he welcomes Favre’s input “wholeheartedly” and pointed to Peyton Manning’s success in Indianapolis as support for

a veteran quarterbackfueled game plan. Well, here’s one item high on Favre’s list: Keep it simple, stupid! To be clear: Favre wasn’t questioning the intelligence of Frazier or Childress or offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell or anyone else who wears a headset or clutches a clipboard around the NFL. But Favre argued passionately and humorously Wednesday for a lessis-more approach to offensive success. “Every playbook across this league is way too thick,” Favre said. “You never practice it all. How can you become consistent if you’re running a different play every week out of a different

MELBOURNE, Australia — The dark sedan backed into a spot next to the clubhouse at the Australian Masters, trunk open, waiting to whisk Tiger Woods to the airport. Lingering behind the car was a friend who was still wrestling with divided loyalties — to Woods and his former wife. They approached each other, awkwardly at first, t h e n s h a re d a q u i c k embrace and quiet words. Woods believes he finally is ready to move on after a self-destructive year that cost him his marriage, his mystique, millions in endorsements and, lastly, his No. 1 ranking. What remains are relationships to repair, along with his golf game. Still to come is Thanksgiving. “I think it’s going to be great,” Woods said. “I’m going to be with my family. My mom is going to be there. We’re going to have a great Thanksgiving. We’ve turned the corner, turned the page, and it’s time to move forward.” He was not playing dumb. Woods realizes the public might forever connect him and Thanksgiving with perhaps one of the most shocking downfalls in sports. It started with the National Enquirer story of an affair with a nightclub hostess. Then came the still mysterious, middleof-the-night accident Nov. 27 when he drove his SUV over a fire hydrant and crashed into a tree beyond his driveway. His wife tended to him in the street, the back windows of the Cadillac Escalade bashed out with a golf club. Continued on 5D

UP NEXT WHO: Minnesota vs. Washington WHAT: Week 12—2010 season WHEN: Noon, Sunday WHERE: FedEx Field, Landover, Md. ON: FOX TV, KXMR radio formation with a different motion with different guys?” The Vikings have had to shuffle constantly at wide receiver, which has clearly hindered their progress.

Drama-weary Packers could face nice future By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. — If things keep heading the way they are right now, Sunday’s 31-3 dismissal of the division rival Minnesota Vikings could be a milestone for the Green Bay Packers. It might be the last time they ever have to face former quarterback Brett Favre — or deal with the attention those matchups bring. When asked about the possibility of being permanently rid of Favre-

AP TOP 25 MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP No. 15 Minnesota 84, North Dakota State 65 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Blake Hoffarber scored 24 points, including four 3-pointers, and Trevor Mbakwe had 12 points and seven rebounds as Minnesota cruised to a win over North Dakota State on Wednesday night. “I give them a lot of credit for

coming back from San Juan with everybody probably telling them how good they are and then still playing well,” NDSU coach Saul Phillips said. “That takes a pretty mature team. Make no mistake about it, I was eyeing this up and saying it couldn't have worked any better coming in. We just weren't able to do our job tonight.” Michael Tveidt led the Bison

with 14 points. Drew Lundberg had 11 points. “We were getting good insideout looks,” Phillips said. “We were patient offensively. Then all of a sudden we just had a couple of turnovers. They got out in transition. That turned the table for us.”

I thought he was the best quarterback and the best safety in the conference. The thing that stands out most is his play at quarterback. It was his first year as a starter and he had a tremendous year throwing the ball, running the ball, and running the offense.” The Saints also had two second-team selections — senior offensive lineman Peter Bopp and senior wide receiver Nick Jangula. Jangula had 19 receptions for 542 yards and six touchdowns. “Peter and Nick are a couple of seniors who really stepped up this year,” Smrekar said. “They were second-team picks on offense, but they also did a nice job defensively.”

Beulah and Dickinson Trinity each put two players on the first team. Tight end Leighton Guthmiller and free safety Dustin Rueb are the honorees from Beulah. Both Guthmiller and Rueb posted big numbers on offense and defense. Guthmiller caught 42 passes for 486 yards and two touchdowns. An inside linebacker, the 5-10, 210-pound senior recorded 63 solo tackles, 45 assisted stops and three interceptions. “Leighton ranks up there with the best tight ends I’ve coached here,” Beulah coach Loy Ham said. “He has fantastic hands and was a reliable target for our quarterback. He was a very good allaround player for us.” Rueb, a 160-pound senior and a second-team selection last season, had a team-high six interceptions, returning

Continued from 1D them for 185 yards and a touchdown. He also had 25 solo tackles and 13 assists. As a wide receiver, Rueb caught 36 passes for 488 yards and six scores. “Like Leighton, Dustin is a very good athlete who excelled on both sides of the ball,” Ham said. “He’s very quick ... great closing speed. In addition to the six interceptions, he knocked down quite a few deep passes. And for a 160-pound kid, he was a solid hitter.” Trinity’s first-team picks are offensive lineman Dustin Hibl, and defensive lineman Tim Brooke. Both were team captains this season. Hibl, a 5-10, 185-pound senior, was a three-year starter on both sides of the ball for the Titans. “Dustin was a solid offensive and defensive lineman in the years he started for us,” Trinity coach Randy

Gordon said. “We’re really going to miss his leadership. He definitely led by example.” Brooke, a 6-foot, 200pound senior, started both ways for two seasons. “Tim did a nice job making himself a good football player. He put in a lot of time in the weight room,” Gordon said. “He’s a hard-working, hard-nosed kid who was awfully tough on opposing linemen. You could say the same thing about Dustin.

Broncos’ Moreno finally hitting his stride By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos rank dead last in the NFL in rushing with a paltry 75.4 yards per game. So why are these guys smiling? Because second-year tailback Knowshon Moreno finally seems to be hitting his stride after a series of setbacks from injuries. Moreno’s right hamstring popped on the first day of training camp and he didn’t play in the preseason, then he tore his left hamstring at practice in September and missed three games. Finally healthy after a bye, Moreno recorded his first career 100-yard rushing game in a rout of Kansas City two weeks ago and he caught a careerhigh seven passes out of the backfield in a loss at San Diego on Monday night. Moreno is playing with a confidence that was only rarely on display in his first 1½ injury-filled NFL years. “Being healthy has a lot to do with it,” Moreno said. “At the same time, I don’t think anybody in the league is ever healthy, especially when they are playing a whole season like this. My body feels pretty good right now.” The first running back selected in the 2009 draft, Moreno banged up a knee in his first preseason game and although he finished his rookie season with 947 yards rushing and seven scores, he never hit the holes like he is now. He’s averaged 4.7 yards a carry in his last two games and caught 10 pass-

es for 112 yards. Liberal use of two-tight end sets and a better offensive line have helped. Star left tackle Ryan Clady is playing better now that he’s more than six months removed from blowing out his left knee in a pickup basketball game and right tackle Ryan Harris’ return from a high ankle sprain has allowed rookie Zane Beadles to return to left guard. But it’s mostly Moreno’s heath that’s turned things around for him. “He’s been able to maintain a consistent workload in practice and get those full-speed reps,” coach Josh McDaniels s a i d . “ H e’s r u n n i n g extremely hard during the week, which has allowed him to play the way that he has played the last few weeks. “He is starting to really take on the role that we envisioned for him to take on in the spring.” Fullback Spencer L a r s e n , w h o’s b e e n banged up himself this year, said it’s no wonder Moreno has a spring in his step, a swagger in his gait and a smile on his face. “Health can do a lot of things for a guy, and when you’re not healthy, your confidence isn’t there,” Larsen said. “It’s just you

NFL CAPSULES — WEEK 12 Patriots (8-2) at Lions (2-8) When: 11:30 a.m., today. Line: Patriots by 7. Synopsis: They should be using mirrors instead of carving boards to slice up the Thanksgiving birds on Thursday, as this group of games looks like real turkeys — each of the three offerings has teams with a mirror-image record of their foe. The feast of tomfoolery begins with the Patriots, fresh off their victory over Indy, facing the Lions. The Pats average nearly 29 points a game, tops in the NFL, and face the No. 19 defense. However, Pats QB Tom Brady is nursing a foot injury. Meanwhile, New England’s defense has been lackluster (an average of 29.3 points/game allowed in last 3 outings), and the unit ranks 30th overall. But Detroit appears too banged up to take full advantage. Bottom line/pick: Forget the conventional wisdom that Detroit is tough in its annual home Turkey Day national TV appearance. That theory is about as soft as day-old dressing. The Lions have lost 8 of their last 9 on the holiday, including the last 6 by an average score of 35-12. Patriots 33, Lions 20.

Saints (7-3) at Cowboys (3-7)

Associated Press

Denver’s Knowshon Moreno is trying to help the Broncos find some balance.

don’t know what to expect out of your body. You see him running with a lot more confidence because he’s feeling better.” Running backs coach Eric Studesville said the Moreno everyone’s seeing is the one the Broncos (37) envisioned all along: “We’ve always felt good about him and excited about his ability. It was just a matter of getting him going a little bit.” Moreno, who never had hamstring issues in high UP NEXT school or while starring at WHO: St. Louis vs. Denver the University of Georgia, WHAT: Week 12—2010 season said he learned after tearWHEN: 3:15 p.m., Sunday ing his right hamstring in WHERE: Invesco Field, Denver camp that he had to be ON: KFYR radio (550 AM) extra careful because he

kept pushing himself to get back only to tweak the muscle, tear the scar tissue and set himself back. So when he pulled his left hamstring, he knew better how to handle the rehab. “Once that healed up, I felt pretty good,” said Moreno. “I mean, I talk to people who have (torn) hammies back in high school where it still nags them, so it’s just staying on top of it and making sure it doesn’t come back.” N o b o d y ’s h a p p i e r about Moreno’s improved play than quarterback Kyle Orton. “These last few weeks he’s really practiced hard.

He’s played hard. I think he’s playing faster, I think he’s playing with a better speed and he’s really going through the holes expecting to get through there and he’s getting to the second level expecting to make a move,” Orton said. Harris said that Moreno is picking up the nuances of the NFL: “He’s made great str ides to read blocks. You are seeing a second-year player who is understanding the game.” “A lot of things have slowed down this year,” Moreno concurred. “Last year, a lot of things were moving a lot faster.” Now, it’s not his mind that’s racing but his legs.

When: 3:15 p.m., today. Line: Saints by 4. Synopsis: Dallas finally has come alive under coach Jason Garrett, going 2-0 and producing 33 then 35 points, and 38-year-old Jon Kitna has been a force filling in for injured QB Tony Romo. Kitna has 6 TD passes in his last two outings, and 10 in his five games. But New Orleans’ underrated defense is stout, ranking No. 2 vs. the pass and 4th overall. Add to that the fact that the usually high-octane New Orleans attack, which struggled early in the season, has shaken off the post-Super Bowl hangover. The Drew Brees-led attack has produced 34 points in each of its last two contests as the Saints now rank 5th in total offense. They face a suspect defense, ranked just 22nd overall. Bottom line/pick: Saints RB Reggie Bush was on the verge of returning last Sunday from a broken leg but was held out a little longer but might play here, which would further fueling the Saints’ arsenal. Saints 30, Cowboys 23.

Bengals (2-8) at Jets (8-2) When: 7:15 p.m., today. Line: Jets by 9½. Synopsis: The bungling Bengals couldn’t even hold a 21-point lead at home last week vs. lowly Buffalo, losing their 7th in a row, and now must go on the road — on short rest — to face one of the NFL’s hottest teams. The Jets blew a late lead but roared back Sunday to beat the Texans and are 8-1 since a narrow loss to the Ravens on opening day. However NY’s pass defense, which was supposed to be a strength, ranks just 16th. It’s the run defense that is the power, rated No. 5. Bottom line/pick: NY could be caught looking ahead to a showdown at New England in its next outing, and Cincy has the NFL’s No. 8 passing attack which could keep this one close. However, Bengals QB Carson Palmer has a foot injury and might not be able to go, meaning that Jordan Palmer (Carson’s brother who has thrown 10 NFL passes), could be pressed into action. The Jets will be without WR Jerricho Cotchery (groin injury). Jets 24, Bengals 20. — Dan Caesar, Lee Newspapers

Coaching carousel: two coaches already out, who is on the hot seat? The fallout for NFL coaches only began with the recent firings of Wade Phillips in Dallas and Brad Childress in Minnesota. Next in line? There are plenty of candidates, although surprisingly strong performances this season by Jacksonville (Jack Del Rio), Chicago (Lovie Smith) and Oakland (Tom Cable) seem to have secured their coaches’ positions. Not so in Carolina, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Houston, Denver and possibly Cleveland or Tennessee. ■ CAROLINA — John Fox has been a lame duck since the end of last season,

49ers, preseason favorites in the NFC West, have been dragged down as much by unclear instructions and BARRY muddled messages from the WILNER coaching staff as they have by poor play.

Expectations were for much more this year, including the first playoff berth in franchise history. But the Texans are awful on defense since linebacker and leader DeMeco Ryans was injured, and can’t hold leads. Even if Kubiak survives, he’ll have to make changes to his staff. ■ DENVER — Another team plagued by a pitiful defense — the Broncos are tied with Houston for most

Green Bay Packers going forward and I’m proud of the way it played out and was true to my character.” Despite getting booed by some Packers fans who had made their minds up about him even before he even made his first start, Rodgers never got sucked into any sort of feud with Favre. Rodgers said he is proud of the way he handled the situation. “I think that was often a lot more difficult than the actual playing, was to practice proper leadership daily,” Ro d g e r s s a i d . “ That’s something you have on some level. Yo u c a n a l s o work on that as a Rodgers skill. That’s something I knew was going to be very important to how I was viewed as a person, leader and player.” But when asked whether he felt as though his play has justified the decision by McCarthy and Packers general manager Ted Thompson to move on, Rodgers punted. “That’s not my decision to make,” Rodgers said. “I don’t really have an opinion about that. I’m just thankful that they stood behind me on that and believed in me and gave me an opportunity. The other stuff that’s not something I worry too much about.” The public sentiment pendulum certainly has swung in the Packers’ favor this season.

Continued from 1D So have the NFC North standings. The Vikings are 3-7 and just fired coach Brad Childress after the blowout loss to Green Bay. Meanwhile, the Packers are 7-3 despite a rash of injuries. Given his track record, Favre’s insistence that this will be his last season usually would induce eye rolls. But it’s somewhat more believable this time around because Favre doesn’t seem to be having much fun. He’s losing, he’s hurt and he keeps getting asked about an NFL investigation into allegations that he sent inappropriate text messages and photos to a female former employee of the New York Jets two years ago. And after beating the Packers twice last year, he now has lost to them twice in the span of a month. “That always feels good, but that’s more us beating the Vikings, it’s not about Brett,” left guard Daryn Colledge said. “Brett’s become a Viking. That’s more of a rivalry game than it us worrying about, ‘Do we need to beat up Brett so Aaron feels good?’ No, we need to beat the Vikings because they’re in the division and that’s important for us.” But to get a sense of just how magnified anything related to Favre and the Packers has become, here’s an example: a photo of Rodgers and Favre after Sunday’s game, in which Rodgers seems to be smirking at Favre, has been making its way around social media websites as evidence that Rodgers was

points allowed in the AFC, 287; Denver has scored 217. The running game is abysmal, ranked at the bottom despite a decent offensive line. Since starting out 6-0 in his debut season as a head coach, Josh McDaniels has gone 5-15. Some of Denver's losses are downright embarrassing, and McDaniels tends to overcoach his team. ■ CLEVELAND — The Browns have made progress in Mike Holmgren’s short time as team president. Holmgren even has gotten coach Eric Mangini to lighten up a bit, something more

difficult than competing in the tough AFC North with Baltimore and Pittsburgh. ■ TENNESSEE — The wild card on the coaching carousel, Jeff Fisher’s time in Music City could end if owner Bud Adams sides with Vince Young rather than the man who has coached his franchise since 1994, the longest current tenure in the NFL. Fisher doesn’t need the ongoing soap opera surrounding Young, and if Adams continues to back the quarterback he insisted the Titans draft in 2004, Fisher might walk. (Barry Wilner writes for The Associated Press)

Minnesota Vikings UP NEXT WHO: Green Bay vs. Atlanta WHAT: Week 12—2010 season WHEN: Noon, Sunday WHERE: Georgia Dome, Atlanta ON: KFYR radio (550 AM) gloating. Rodgers said it’s a misunderstanding, that he was reacting to a joke Favre made about Packers assistant coach James Campen. “Brett and I embraced and then he made a funny comment about James Campen as we were separating,” Rodgers said. “And I looked back and smirked about his comment about James Campen and they froze it. You can put any tag you want underneath that picture. I can tell you exactly what happened. People are still going to read into that.” How can we be sure Rodgers is telling the truth? “Because that’s never been my personality,” Rodgers said. “Agreed?” Indeed, Rodgers does have a track record of staying above the fray. “I think he’s handled the whole Brett Favre thing with the utmost class and respect,” Colledge said. “I think he’s found a way to set himself apart. Now he’s got to go out and win some more games. That’s what he plans on doing, that’s what we plan on doing. So we’re the Green Bay Packers, he’s Brett Favre and until those entities collide again, we’re not worried about it.”

“You think those guys crack that book, go through all 500 pages? Come on,” Favre said. “You could hide a couple hundred dollar bills in there.” Asked if there was a point in his NFL career when he felt like he was suffering from information overload, the 41year-old Favre praised his first head coach in Green Bay, Mike Holmgren. “A great play caller, a great coach, very demanding, a perfectionist, but I thought he was a forgiving and patient coach because it took a while for us to kind of get on the same page,” Favre said. “More me getting on the page with h i m . Bu t I c a n j u s t remember him saying over and over again, ’I don’t care if they know what we run. They’ve still got to stop it.’ “And if you’ve run the same plays over and over, then you can disguise it a little bit maybe with a formation or a motion or putting a different guy in there to do that. But it’s still the same play. The concept’s still the same, and that has always stuck with me.” Favre said he sent Childress a text message after the firing, but he said he hadn’t yet heard back.

Frazier, who was an assistant with the Colts when Manning led them to a Super Bowl title four years ago, stopped short of handing Favre a blank check to draw up plays in the dirt. “He’s a Hall of Fame quarterback. He’s seen just about every defensive front and coverage that you can see, so his input will be invaluable,” Frazier said. “But at the same time, there are going to be some ideas and some thoughts that may not necessarily be a part of what we do, and he’ll understand that.” On Frazier’s first day in charge of practice, he predicted some tweaks to the offense for this week’s game at Washington, without being specific. “Hopefully we’ll see that on Sunday,” Frazier said. “We’ll all get to see the direction I’d like to see us go.” The Redskins’ Donovan McNabb, on a conference call with Minnesota reporters, offered his own argument for quarterback input. “That’s how you grow together in any system,” McNabb said. The Vikings aren’t about to change the West Coast system that Child re s s b r o u g h t f r o m Philadelphia. Bevell is a disciple of that scheme, too, so any of the adjust-

Continued from 1D ments made over the final six games are likely to be subtle. “I can’t envision that much changing,” wide receiver Greg Camarillo said. “Both coordinators are the same and all the personnel is the same.” Frazier said linebackers coach Fred Pagac will call the defense, with input from defensive line coach Karl Dunbar and defensive backs coach Joe Woods, while he focuses on the supervisory duties that come with being the head coach. “I do feel comfortable with doing it, and I’ll do some things in the days to come to prepare and be a little bit sharper than I’ll need to be,” Frazier said. “But there’s nothing like game experience, so I’ll get some of that on Sunday.” As for Favre’s commitment to finishing the season, well, he scoffed at any speculation that he might quit early. “How could you in my position not want to go out and play well? I have just a ton of pride,” Favre said. Without mentioning the foot, ankle and shoulder injuries listed on this week’s injury report, Favre said he was fighting an illness. “That’s what happens when you get older,” Favre said. ■ Bismarck Tribune

Rick Hendrick, left, is trying to figure out a way to make Dale Earnhardt Jr., right, more competitive in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Changes were not Earnhardt driven By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The ongoing struggles of Dale Earnhardt Jr. were not the sole reason for the sweeping changes made at Hendrick Motorsports. A day after Rick Hendrick shuffled the driver and crew chief lineup for three of his race teams, the team owner said the entire organization had grown complacent because of all its success. Even Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus, fresh off their fifth consecutive championship, were “off this year,” Hendrick said. “This was not a Dale Earnhardt — not a move that we made, this major of a move, because of Dale or his situation,” Hendrick said Wednesday. “I am excited about making all four teams better. We need to be better across the board. We are not going to leave any stone unturned.” Hendrick proved that by moving the drivers for three of the teams, leaving only Johnson and Knaus intact. The duo won their fifth title Sunday after fighting off the most serious challenge yet to their championship reign. But Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin and Earnhardt were all winless, and Gordon was the only other Hendrick driver in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. He finished ninth. The mediocre results came a year after Johnson, Martin and Gordon gave Hendrick an unprecedented sweep of the top three spots in the final season standings. Hendrick said he called a companywide meeting after the Nov. 7 race at Texas, where Johnson’s crew was benched in the middle of the event and Denny Hamlin outran the No. 48 team to take the lead in the championship standings. No personnel decisions were made during the meeting. “No one suggested in that meeting that we shift people

around,” Hendrick said. “It was about how each individual could make this organization better.” In the two weeks after Johnson the meeting, there were discussions between Hendrick and his management team, and the shakeup was revealed Tuesday afternoon. “A tremendous amount of thought went into it, and it was not a (decision) from the hip,” Hendrick said. “It’s not one of those things that you can vote on; it’s one of those things you have to pull the trigger and go do it.” The owner said he has now matched driver and crew chief based on personality fits. “I think everybody was excited last night, and it sparked a new amount of energy in our company,” he said. The new lineup teams Earnhardt with Steve Letarte, who was Jeff Gordon’s crew chief. Earnhardt will move into the same race shop with Johnson and Knaus, and Hendr ick believes Letarte’s personality will help rebuild the waning confidence of NASCAR’s most popular driver. Earnhardt has won just one race in the three seasons he’s been with Hendrick Motorsports. Gordon, meanwhile, gets Alan Gustafson as crew chief. Gu s t a f s o n h a d b e e n paired with Mark Martin and led Martin to five wins and a runner-up finish to Johnson in last year’s Chase. Martin moves to Lance McGrew, who spent the last 60 races with Earnhardt. Hendrick made improving Earnhardt’s team the priority last year but marrying the No. 88 team with Martin’s No. 5 team did not work the way he had planned. It also hurt Martin’s production.

Stocks jump on positive data NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks ended Wednesday on a positive note after a batch of economic reports offered hope that the U.S. economy was improving. Incomes rose last month and consumer spending climbed for a fifth month. That raised hopes that shoppers will hit the malls in droves the day after Thanksgiving, the start of the holiday shopping season. At the same time, fewer people claimed unemployment benefits last week, a sign that the labor market is recovering. “There are fundamental signs that the economy is turning a corner,” said John O’Donoghue, co-head of equities at Cowen & Co. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 150.91, or 1.4 percent, to 11,187.28. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index gained 17.62, or 1.5 percent, to 1,198.35. The Nasdaq composite index rose 48.17, or 1.9 percent, to 2,543.12.

The upturn marked an abrupt reversal from Tuesday, when an exchange of artillery fire between North and South Korea led nervous investors to sell stocks and dash into gold, Treasurys and other assets often used as hiding spots. Investors also shrugged off a steep fall in new home sales and manufacturing orders. Tim Speiss, chairman of the wealth advisory group at EisnerAmper, said

investors were right to focus on the improved signs in employment and consumer spending, which are far more important to an economic resurgence than home sales or manufacturing orders. “If we don’t have strong consumer spending in this economy, we’re in trouble,” said Speiss. “When there’s spending, manufacturing will increase to meet that demand.”

Hopes rise for the economy By JEANNINE AVERSA AP Economics Writer



AbdAsPac AlldNevG AlmadnM g AmApparel AmO&G ArcadiaRs Augusta g Aurizon g BarcUBS36 BarcGSOil Brigus grs CAMAC En Cardero g CelSci CFCda g

WASHINGTON — Americans are earning and spending more, companies are shedding fewer workers and hopes are rising for the economy as the holiday shopping season starts. Still, with businesses spending less on manufactured goods and new-home sales near their lowest level in 47 years, consumers alone might not be able to invigorate the economy and drive down unemployment. All told, government data released the day before Thanksgiving suggest an improving economic picture. But it is increasingly dependent on the consumer, even with U.S. companies having reported record profits in the

July-September quarter. “Households are spending more, and that may signal they are starting to feel better about economic conditions,” said economist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advisors. “It is the consumer that holds the key to the recovery and it looks like households are starting to turn the lock.” Many retailers depend on the holiday shopping season to make their year. The November-December shopping season can account for up to 40 percent of retailers’ revenue and profits. Consumers boosted spending 0.4 percent in October, up from a 0.3 percent increase in September, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. Many are benefiting from thicker paychecks. Ameri-

cans’ incomes rose 0.5 percent in October, pulled up by a 0.6 percent rise in wages and salaries. That was after incomes didn’t grow at all in September. At the same time, the pace of layoffs is slowing. Initial jobless claims dropped by 34,000 to a seasonally adjusted 407,000 in the week ending Nov. 20, the Labor Department said. Applications have fallen in four of the past six weeks. Last week’s figure was the lowest since July 2008 and the first time that claims have fallen below 425,000 since then. Economists generally believe that weekly first-time applications for jobless aid would need to drop consistently below 425,000 to signal sustained job gains.
