THERE’S NO BANDAID BIG ENOUGH

TO COVER THESE CUTS Billions in proposed Medicare cuts to Hospital Outpatient Clinics threaten access to care in low-income communities. Looming deficit reduction talks are putting critical Medicare payments for hospital outpatient clinic services at risk. For decades, hospital-based clinics have provided the primary — and sometimes the only — access to physicians for the nation’s underserved rural and urban communities. The potential for billions in cuts ignores the added costs hospitals incur for caring for the uninsured and underinsured, and will force these clinics to close.

Israel Sends Warning to Enemies

Oviedo was returning from a rally Saturday night when his pilot encountered bad weather. The two and a bodyguard were killed, officials said. (AP) LONDON

Munich Israel’s defense minister strongly signaled Sunday that his country was behind an airstrike in Syria last week, telling a high-profile security conference that Israeli threats to take preemptive action against its enemies are not empty. “We mean it,” Ehud Barak declared. Israel has not officially confirmed that its planes attacked a site near Damascus, targeting groundto-air missiles apparently headed for Lebanon, but its intentions have been beyond dispute. During the 22 months of civil war in Syria, Israeli leaders have repeatedly expressed concern that high-end weapons could fall into the hands of Hezbollah, the Lebanese militants. For years, Israel has been charging that Syrian President Bashar Assad and Iran have been arming

The Britain-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack killed at least 16 people, including 10 children. Troops loyal to President Bashar Assad and rebels have been locked in a deadly stalemate in Aleppo, Syria’s main commercial hub, since an opposition assault last summer. Elsewhere, Turkey on Sunday pledged its continued support for the Syrian opposition, saying its leaders should not be pressured into talks with the regime as civil war rages. (AP)

Volunteers ‘On the Edge’ in Russia Itomlya, Russia A country doctor, a tiny, dilapidated village hospital, an indifferent health bureaucracy — and now, coming to the rescue, volunteers from distant Moscow, bringing furniture, equipment, money and, maybe most important, good cheer. In the background, though, is the parliament — weighing a law to bring any volunteer activity under the purview of the state, on the theory that people who organize themselves to do good work are a threat to the state’s power. “They want volunteers to be walking in columns and support the

authorities,” said Yevgeny Grekov, who helps run a drivers group called Volunteers on Wheels. “But pro-

grams such as ours have no lists. If you want to help, well, help.” The past year or so has seen an upwelling of a trend unprecedented in Russia — people getting together on their own to help others. The rapid emergence of volunteer efforts, fueled in large part by social media, coincides with the eruption of public political protest — and that’s not by happenstance. There’s a tension, though, that won’t go away. “Why should we do the state’s job for it?” Oksana Prikhodko asked. “On the other hand, why should our children suffer? It’s a constant debate, and we’re always on the edge.” (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Hezbollah. U.S. officials say the target was a convoy of Russian SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles. In his comments Sunday in Munich, Barak came close to confirming that his country was behind the operation. “I cannot add anything to what you have read in the newspapers about what happened in Syria,” he said. In Syria, Assad said his country would confront any aggression, his first comment on the airstrike, the state news agency SANA reported. While Israel has remained officially silent on the airstrike, there seemed little doubt that the country carried it out, especially given the confirmation from the U.S. Israel has a powerful air force equipped with U.S.-made warplanes and has a history of carrying out air raids on hostile territory, and Israeli military officials routinely talk about a “policy of prevention” meant to disrupt the flow of arms to its enemies.

New Delhi She was her family’s biggest hope. In a country where women are often pushed into subservience, the 23-year-old who dreamed of becoming a doctor was going to lift them out of poverty. “Without her we are lost,” said her father in the family’s tiny apartment, talking of his daughter, who died after she was gang-raped in December. The case galvanized public anger in India over sexual attacks and the inability of authorities to stop them. The victim and her family cannot be identified until the end of the trial because of a legal gag order. Indian culture has a deeply rooted preference for sons, yet this family reflects a growing part of society that is changing. When she said she wanted to study physiotherapy, her father asked the older son to delay college. Money was scarce. “She was the hero of the film in our family,” the father said. She was awaiting her final exam results when everything changed. She went to a movie with a male friend Dec. 16 but never returned. The police called at 11:10 p.m. to say she had been in an accident. The truth was much worse: The two had gotten on a bus that turned out to be driven by six men out for a joy ride, according to police. He was beaten. She was gang-raped.

At Odds Over Transit Hub County, contractors bicker over delayed Silver Spring facility More than two years behind schedule and $80 million over its original budget, the Silver Spring Transit Center remains plagued by fingerpointing and threats of legal action between Montgomery County officials and building contractors over concrete flooring and other structural issues. Montgomery officials maintain that the long-delayed masstransit hub at Wayne Avenue and Colesville Road, which would be a central depot for buses, Metrorail and MARC trains in the heart of Silver Spring’s revitalized downtown, will open in September. But they acknowledge that the timetable is contingent on the findings of a consultant’s study commissioned by the county to assess construction and engineering concerns over the three-tiered facility. The latest round of recriminations surfaced publicly Thursday when Bryant Foulger, managing principal of Foulger-Pratt, the prime contractor on the project, said in an interview that the county has needlessly delayed completion of the center for months. Foulger said the county has refused to meet with the firm’s engineers to discuss the government’s concerns, first cited in the fall of 2011, about concrete on the facility’s upper levels that was not poured to specified thickness and may have been inadequately reinforced with embedded steel. There are also cracks in the concrete. Foulger said the firm proposed

The transit center will be located at the corner of Colesville Road and Wayne Avenue in Silver Spring, but construction has been delayed for years.

Not a Good Start Problems surfaced almost from the beginning, according to county documents. Work was delayed for more than a year because of difficulties in moving utility lines. The cost of the project has grown from $35 million to an estimated $112 million. (T WP)

fixes to the problems last spring but that he has received no response from Montgomery officials. “We’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting,” said Foulger, whose firm has been a major player in the redevelopment of Silver Spring. “We’re kind of at our wit’s end.” Joined by his attorney during the 30-minute conference call, he also said construction had been hampered by flaws in the coun-

ty’s original design, which he said wasn’t “fully coordinated or completed.” Patrick Lacefield, spokesman for County Executive Isiah Leggett, said officials will have more to say after delivery of the consultant’s study, which is being compiled by KCE Structural Engineers and is due within a couple of weeks. Until then, he said, discussions with the company about construction flaws or how they might be addressed are not productive. “Once we get the report, then we’ll be able to respond to what it is they are saying,” Lacefield said. Lacefield added, however, that the opening of the center would not be held up by litigation. “Nobody wants to open this transit center quicker than we do,” Lacefield said.

Contractors Plan for More Cuts As defense spending drops, companies continue to downsize The D.C. region’s contracting companies have made dramatic cuts in recent years, from Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin’s 2010 buyout for hundreds of senior executives to Booz Allen Hamilton’s 2012 reductions in its management ranks. Many in the region thought the worst might be over, but contractors are making it clear they’re not done yet. Reporting declining profit and sales, companies from Northrop Grumman to General Dynamics are promising a continued focus on reducing costs. McLean-based Booz Allen Hamilton, a contracting giant that cut 2 percent from its ranks a year ago, said that it is trimming its staff again.

Booz Allen Hamilton, whose cyberfacility is shown above, is cutting staff again.

Ralph Shrader, Booz Allen’s chief executive, chairman and president, said in a call with investors last week that the company thought the head count reductions it made last year would “place us well ahead of the curve.”

“Unfortunately, the curve kept changing faster than we thought,” he said. “What we are coming to grips with as an organization … is that, when your growth rate slows, it’s time to take a good look at some of the practices … and decide wheth-

er they are sustainable over uncertain times.” At Falls Church-based Northrop Grumman, where earnings for the quarter were also down, Wes Bush, the company’s chief executive, said he is pushing for more efficiency. “I am not going to set any public targets on how much more we can get there, but … we are determined and ensuring that we can be very, very competitive from a cost-structure perspective,” Bush said in a recent call with investors. Loren Thompson, a defense industry consultant, said every contractor is under pressure to cut its spending. “Defense spending is falling by hundreds of billions of dollars over the next several years,” he said. “It’s going to impact companies relatively gradually, and so they have time to make adjustments and plan for how best to deal with the downturn.” MARJORIE CENSER (CAPITAL BUSINES S)

Rhee Defends School Firings On ‘This Week’ Washington Former D.C. schools chancellor Michelle Rhee says she thinks she did the right thing when she fired teachers and principals. However, Rhee says, she should have done it differently. R hee made t he c om me nt s Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” She Rhee was asked if she had any second thoughts about her style, which included allowing a camera crew to follow her as a principal was fired. Rhee said she probably shouldn’t have fired a principal on national television. She also said removing ineffective people and cutting bureaucracy were commonsense solutions. (AP)

What owner Aaron Gordon says he saw as an unofficial tribute to D.C. graffiti icon Cool “Disco” Dan, others saw as a crass appropriation of a living artist’s name and work. “It was such a playful, fun name. … It reminded me of my childhood,” said Gordon, who grew up near Eastern Market and remembered seeing the artist’s eponymous tags on buildings and near Metro tracks as a kid. “The [store] name was never so much supposed to be about Cool Disco Dan. … It was about the culture and not necessarily about him.” After a day of overwhelmingly negative feedback, Gordon changed the name to Zeke’s D.C.

Donutz, after his middle name. The “Cool Disco Donut” mural by the door will go; the graffiti interior will stay. And so will some of the hurt feelings, at least for a little while, among a community that is extremely protective of Cool “Disco” Dan (real name: Dan Hogg), their onetime rebel hero. Asad Walker, also known as the graffiti artist Ultra, started a Facebook page called “The Society for the Preservation of Cool ‘Disco’ Dan” and threatened to picket the store opening. “To a guy on the street, his name is everything, particularly for a graffiti artist,” Walker said. “And to have it diminished and changed into the name of a doughnut shop is not really very respectful to me.” Filmmaker Joseph Pattisall, who produced the soon-to-bereleased “The Legend of Cool ‘Disco’ Dan” with Roger Gastman, has another idea: “If [Gordon] really wants to make things right, he could offer Dan a job. Dan would love a kitchen job,” he said. MAUR A JUDKIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Super Bowl XLVII No Average Joe

The Ravens got out to a 22-point lead and held on to win Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers on Sunday.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had one of the best postseasons in NFL history, throwing 11 touchdowns and no interceptions. Here’s what he did in each game:

A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation’s biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Flacco, voted the MVP, threw three first-half touchdown passes to cap an 11-TD, zero-interception postseason. Jacoby Jones returned the second-half kickoff 108 yards, a Super Bowl record, to give Baltimore a 28-6 lead. Moments later, lights lining the indoor arena faded, making it difficult to see. When action resumed, Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers scored 17 consecutive points, getting as close as 31-29. But Baltimore stopped San Francisco on fourth-and-goal from the 5 with under 2 minutes left when Kaepernick’s pass sailed beyond Michael Crabtree in the end zone. The biggest deficit a team has ever overcome to win a Super Bowl is 10 points, and there were moments

were it appeared San Francisco had a chance to better that mark. Instead, the 49ers lost for the first time in six trips to the Super Bowl. The AFC champion Ravens (146), a franchise that moved from Cleveland to Baltimore 17 years ago, improved to 2-0 in the big game. They also won the championship in 2001, when linebacker Ray Lewis was voted the game’s MVP. Lewis was not a major factor this time, but he was a center of attention, playing in the final game of his 17-year career before retiring. The 49ers struggled early in the first Super Bowl coaching matchup between brothers: Baltimore’s John Harbaugh is 15 months older than San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh. Baltimore led 28-6 after Jones opened the second half with the longest kickoff return in a Super Bowl, his eyes glancing up at the videoboard, presumably to watch himself sprint to the end zone. Shortly following Jones’ return, the sudden, odd power outage arrived. Escalators weren’t working. Officials stopped play about 1½ minutes into the third quarter, and the bizarre delay lasted 34 minutes in real time before action resumed. Some players sat. Others stretched. Some fans chanted, “Let’s go, Ravens!” Others passed time by doing the wave. HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)

Louisville guard Russ Smith scored a game-high 18 points in Sunday’s win.

Phil Mickelson won the Phoenix Open by four strokes over Brandt Snedeker after shooting a 4-under 67 on Sunday. He finished the tournament 28 under.

Phil Finishes Off Phoenix Open Mickelson completes dominating victory with a 67 on Sunday PGA Tour Phil Mickelson completed a wireto-wire victory in the Phoenix Open, again flirting with history in a dominating four-day run at TPC Scottsdale. Mickelson shot a 4-under 67 on Sunday to finish at 28-under 256, two strokes off the PGA Tour record of 254 set by Tommy Armour III in the 2003 Texas Open. Mickelson missed a chance for a 59 in the first round when his 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole

Nearly Perfect Phil Mickelson finished the Phoenix Open at 28-under 256, two strokes off the PGA Tour record. Here’s how he did it:

Round 1: Shot a 60 (-11) and had a 25-foot putt lip out on his final hole with a 59 on the line. Round 2: Shot a 65 (-6) and had his lone eagle of the tournament on the par-5 15th hole. Round 3: Shot a 64 (-7) and didn’t record a bogie on Saturday to enter the final round with a six-stroke lead. Round 4: Shot a 67 (-4) with three birdies in his last six holes to hold off Brandt Snedeker. (E XPRESS)

caught the right edge of the cup, curled 180 degrees and stayed out. He settled for a 60 and followed with rounds of 65 and 64 to take a six-stroke lead into the final round. Brandt Snedeker finished second, four strokes back after a 65. Mickelson took a three-stroke lead to the 17th tee, and nearly drove into the left-side water on the drivable par 4, his ball stopping a yard short of the hazard. He hit his 25-yard second shot 15 feet past the hole and made the birdie putt. Snedeker matched him with a little shorter putt to remain three shots behind. Mickelson parred the par-4 18th after another drive to the left, one that easily cleared the water he hit

into Friday en route to a double bogey. Snedeker closed with a bogey. Mickelson had his third wire-towire victory and first since the 2006 BellSouth Classic — a 13-stroke blowout the week before the second of his three Masters victories. He pushed his victory total to 41, winning for the first time since his victory at Pebble Beach 51 weeks ago. Making his 24th appearance in the event that he also won in 1996 and 2005, Mickelson tied the tournament scoring record set by Mark Calcavecchia in 2001, and joined Calcavecchia, Arnold Palmer and Gene Littler as the only three-time winners. With six victories in Arizona, Mickelson also matched Johnny Miller’s tour record. JOHN NICHOLSON (AP)

Rocker Dave Grohl set out to make a recording studio the subject of his firstever film. He was intrigued not only by the studio but by a specific piece of recording equipment — a 1970s-era sound board — that captured every note of music made there. “Sound City” offers a colorful piece of music history, a candid examination of changes wrought by technology and a defiant statement about not surrendering the human element in creativity. Grohl’s rookie film made it to the Sundance movie festival, can be purchased as a digital download for $12.99 and is accompanied by an album featuring artists he interviewed. “It honestly was more like a keg party with a camera than making a Hollywood film,” Grohl says. Grohl knew nothing about the Sound City studio in Van Nuys, Calif., when he and fellow Nirvana members Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic booked a session to make “Nevermind” in 1991. Their California record company wanted Nirvana nearby to keep an eye on them and Sound City was cheap. It was in a nondescript neighborhood and looked like a dump, with tired shag carpeting. Then Nirvana

noticed all the gold records on the wall from artists who had recorded there: Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Van Halen, REO Speedwagon, Guns N’ Roses, Neil Young, Cheap Trick, Slayer, Rick Springfield and more. After plugging in their instruments and running through “In Bloom,” Grohl and his mates discovered why. The sound was amazing. “You might have never heard of Nirvana if we had recorded in Hollywood with a fancy producer who made us sound like Def Leppard,” he says. “The fact that that [sound] board made us sound like us is what people appreciated.” When Grohl inquired about buying the recording console a few years ago, the studio operator suggested she’d rather sell her grandmother. But then Sound City closed — a result of cheap technology making it possible to record in bedrooms — and Grohl’s wish

Hoo-ah Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha! Al Pacino began his career as a comedian and now finds himself drawn to funny roles

a movie with Robin Williams (“Insomnia”), “he didn’t know that I really wanted to be him.”

“If I suddenly didn’t want to [act] anymore, that’d be fine. I’d probably be an usher again in a playhouse.”

Al Pacino, energized by a conversation that has inevitably turned to the intricacies of acting, is snapping his fingers. “When you get me on the acting trail, I get on that train,” he says, punctuating what he calls an improvised “thesis on time” with staccato snaps. The 72-year-old may be grayhaired and a little worn, but he remains, like a dancer, always on his toes, and still enamored of the “crazy, crazy, crazy thing” that is acting: “You’re always looking for what’s going to feed you, what’s going to feed the spirit and get you going.” And Pacino is still getting going. Yet the subject of time — how much is needed to find a character and how it dictates the parts he chooses now — weighs on his mind. “Sometimes I’m tempted to say, ‘Why am I doing this? Why am I still doing this?’” he says. “Then, after I don’t do it for a while, I say: ‘Oh, now I know why I still do it.’ If I suddenly didn’t want to do it

anymore, that’d be fine. I’d probably be an usher again in a playhouse.” If Pacino is feeling reminiscent of his early days as a Bronxborn aspiring thespian knocking

around in 1960s downtown New York theaters and cafes, it’s partly because his recent work reflects on his beginnings. Not many know that Pacino started out as a comedian. He jokes that though he did

Pacino, funny guy, has certainly been glimpsed before. But after a career better known for gangsters, crooks and Shakespearean villains, Pacino has lately been exercising his comedy chops. After finishing a revival run on Broadway of “Glengarry Glen Ross” in which he played up the laughs as the desperate, over-the-hill salesman Shelley, Pacino stars in the crime comedy film “Stand Up Guys.” His fondness for broad comedy helps explain the most inscrutable credit in Pacino’s filmography: the 2011 Adam Sandler film “Jack and Jill,” in which he rapped a Dunkin’ Donuts ad as “Dunkaccino.” “The reason I stayed in the profession [is] because I fell in love with drama, whether it’s comedy or tragedy,” Pacino says. “I became more or less sort of serious about things.” JAKE COYLE (AP)

Ving Rhames stars as the trauma chief of a hospital in “Monday Mornings.”

Much of “Mornings” unfolds like your standard medical procedural. Better-than-average-looking surgeons fight to save their patients and

to keep their hands off each other. Things get interesting when Harding Hooten (Alfred Molina) convenes all of the surgeons in a medical amphitheater to publicly review their recent successes and failures. Ving Rhames stars as Jorge Villanueva, the trauma chief who cares deeply. Hotshot neurosurgeon Tyler Wilson (Jamie Bamber) is similarly tortured by the need to be a surgeon-savior to every patient. A medical show with lawyerly leanings, “Mornings” avoids the obvious cuteness that has dogged Kelley’s work since “Ally McBeal.” For that reason alone, it has the potential to become appointment TV.

“This portrait President George W. Bush painted of his dog Barney makes me want to see more of his work.” — @B_G_H is a fan of the 43rd president’s handiwork with a paintbrush. Barney, Bush’s Scottish terrier, died last week.

“The ad isn’t racist. It is flattering, with a splash of ignorance. But that’s all. It is proof that Jamaican culture is and will always be relevant, despite the tiny size of the island. It also further proves my life-long theory that it’s the most copied culture.” — THEKEVINBURKEPROJECT.COM, who is of

Jamaican descent, holds no objections to the Volkswagen “Get Happy” Super Bowl commercial that features a character from Minnesota speaking with a Jamaican accent.

“If you are not the type of person to sing and dance along to infectious live music performed by an energetic and engaging cast, then FELA! may not be the show for you.” — PAMELASPUNCH.COM offers a quick review of the show — based on the life of Nigerian musician Fela Kuti — playing at Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Harman Hall through Feb. 10.

“Well, it certainly had all the ingredients to lure in the ‘Twilight’ audience.

the zombie inspired “Warm Bodies” had an opening weekend of $19.5 million in ticket sales.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You must let someone close to you know when you are out of sorts or you’re not likely to get the comfort you need when you need it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You mustn’t try to explain everything that happens today, or you’ll simply get tangled up in seemingly conflicting details. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You are waiting for someone to apologize who is, in fact, waiting for you to do the same. Perhaps it’s time to let bygones be bygones! TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You can have a great deal of fun today while still getting things done that others are expecting. You admire someone new on the scene. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It may seem to you as though the various aspects of your day don’t quite fit together — and indeed there are some random elements to acknowledge!

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You will want to get all the facts before deciding on a course of action, for whatever you do will not be able to be undone. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) There are those who believe in what you are trying to do, and those who do not — but right now it might be difficult to tell who is who.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may want to be alone some of the time today, but you may not know how to arrange it. Don’t let yourself get frustrated or defensive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You will be in a position of authority about a topic that others are just starting to learn. Dispense information judiciously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’re wondering how you can recapture some of the “good old days,” when in fact you should be looking forward.
