Baker School District students performed much like others throughout the state on a new more rigorous testing system administered last spring. Results were released Thursday by the Oregon Department of Education. Overall, 54.3percent of allBaker students received a 3 or a 4on the new test's 4-pointscale in the area of English/language arts. Statewide,54.1 percent ofallstudentsscored 3s

and 4s in that area of the testing. In math, Baker students were slightly below statewide scores, which, in general, were lower than those earned in English/language arts. Statewide, 40.8 percent ofallstudents scored 3s and 4s in math. In Baker, 36.3percent ofallstudents reached those goals. The new 4-point scale is designedtoindicate a student's readiness forcollege or a career upon graduating from high school. Those

who earned 3s and 4s are deemed to be on that track. Scores of 1s and 2s could be a reflection of the way the test was administered in addition to the child's readiness for the more rigorous testing system, said Betty Palmer, the Baker School District's assistant superintendent. The results, which are based on a new system and new standards, cannot be comparedtolastyear'stest results, Palmer said. And with just one baseline score, it's too early to put too much

emphasis on the results, she

Driver in fiery crash not cited By Jayson Jacoby ]]acoby©

Rather than a multiplechoice answering system, the new tests, known as Smarter Balanced assessments, require students to interact with the questions by constructing their own responses and composing essays. In math, Palmer said students who scored 3s and 4s typically were those who have traditionally done well in the subject.

The Baker County Sheriff's Office doesn't intend to cite the Washington man who was driving the pickup truck that crashed Saturday afternoon on a gravel road north of Richland and caught ire,sparking the 17,800-acre f Dry Gulchfi re. Dennis Nash, 40, of Vancouver, was driving his 2012 Ford F-350 on Eagle Creek Road, Sheriff Travis Ash said. Nash lost control of the truck on a corner at about 3:10 p.m.

Visiting Malheur County Circuit Court Judge J. Burdette Pratt made the ruling Wednesday evening in Grant County Circuit Court. Easley was 14 at the time of the shootings on Oct. 4, 2014. He turned 15 on June 1. Pratt said he denied the waiver to adult court because Easley lacks sufficient sophistication and maturity to appreciate the nature of the conduct.

Terry Ann DeBruyne July 11, 1953 — Sept. 1, 2015 From her husband Michael, Terry Ann was mybest friend, my soul mate, my everything. For over 30 years we were together. We traveled among many other places to Alaska, Europe, Aruba, Mexico, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Egypt, Turkey and many American national parks. Other things she loved doing included tennis, archery, gardening and sudoku puzzles. While Alex became a black belt, Terry was also becoming a brown belt in Tien Tae Jitsu. She was quite simply the kindest, most thoughtful and best person I have ever known. She found out she had stage 3 breast cancer in early 2010. We fought that all year with operations, IV chemo and radiation treatment. It became dormant for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Our lives were normal. Then in 2015, the breast cancer came back in the form of an incurable bone marrow cancer. We battled that all year until she passed on September 1. That's a pretty insidious disease. For the last 2 weeks of Terry's life her sister Cindy stayed with us, (from Arizona) and did the most selfless act of caretaking for her I have ever seen. Asante Hospice should also be credited largely in the last week. Born in Baker City, Oregon, she graduated high school there and moved to Portland. She graduated with a Bachelors Degree from Eastern Oregon University. She worked for Meyer Memorial Trust from 1982 until the start of 2014. Then we retired and moved to Medford a year ago. She is survived by her husband, Michael and son Alexander. My side includes, brother Barry and his wife Gayle and other brother Richard. Her side is brothers and sisters, Leo, Carol, Jack, Linda, Donna, Ivan, Cindy, Todd, Wade and their families. Her wishes were to be cremated and ashes put out to sea. Terry, I will always love you. From our son Alex, To those of you who knew my mom: please don't be offended if she didn't tell you about the cancer. She was a very private person and never wanted others to worry. To those who didn't know my mom: she was amazing. She was a feminist before her time- the primary income earner who made triple my Dad in the height ofher career, while never leaving the good work of the non-profit world. She was a sci-fi nerd-part of t hat one percentile that un-ironically watched Sharknado...both a Trekkie and a Whovian. She would often spend Saturdays doing latch-hook or crochet with some terrible made-for-TV movie in the background. She always prioritized travel and valued new experiences. She loved sushi and fruitcake and avoided most vegetables parents try and make their kids eat. Most importantly, my mom never approved of funerals and the societal obligation of sorrow around death. She felt death should be followed by a celebration of life in appreciation for who and what you still have. So thank you friends and remaining family for everything wonderful you contribute to my life.

program, most students were testedthree times a yearfora period ofthree hours each. Baker's participation ratesof95.3 percent In English/language arts and 95.1 percent in math, closely mirrored the statewide rate. A minimum rate of 95 percentisrequired in order to meet federal guidelines. In thearea ofscience, where students were tested on the old system of multiple-choice questions, Baker High School's 11thgradersoutshined the state average of 63.5 percent of students meeting the state benchmarks. At BHS, 81 percent of juniors met or exceeded the same standards they were measured on a year ago. Those results can be compared to last year's scores, Palmer said. Writing samples also were not part of the new Smarter Balanced testing, but will be scored as they have been in the past, by trained teachers. Deputy Superintendent Salam Noor of the Oregon Department of Education said in a press release issued Thursday that she was encouraged by the scores, which were 10 percent higher than expected. The data continued to pointto "persistent achievement gaps" that remain for "underserved students and their peers," however, she said. In the Baker School District, those students are represented by English language learners, students with disabilities and economically disadvantaged students. SeeScoreslPage 6A

Cycle Oregon's first visit to Baker County since n

2008 didn't go as intended. Like so much else this summer, the week-long event that brought 2,200 bicyclists and a couple hundred support workers to the county was affected by wildfire. The Dry Gulch fire, specifically, which was ignited Saturday afternoon when a driver lost control ofhis pickuptruck on Eagle Creek Road near New Bridge and crashed, sparking a vehicle fire that spread into the parched grass and brush beside the road. Over the next few days the blaze burned across 18,000acres and forced dozens ofresidents in the Eagle and Pine valleys to evacuate. Cycle Oregon rolled out of Baker City on Sunday morning, and aker overnight stays at Farewell Bend StatePark Sunday and Cambridge, Idaho,Monday, riders were scheduled to pedal into Halfway to spend Tuesday night. The Dry Gulch fire foiled that plan. Cycle Oregon oKcials canceled the Halfway stay as well as the overnight camps planned for Wednesday andThursday atWal lowa Lake. Some riders were disappointed, of course, about being deprived of the chance to ride through the grand scenery of the Wallowas. And Halfway and Joseph missed one of the summer's big events. But Cycle Oregon made the wise choice. No recreational event is so important as to justify potentially interfering with the task of putting out a wildfire that threatens homes and lives. No doubt the riders regret missing Halfway. And we're certain many in Halfway were chagrined to learn that bicyclists wouldn't temporarily boost their town's population by almost tenfold. But Cycle Oregon will return. And thanks to the work of firefighters — with a timely assist from a couple of rainstorms — the beautiful country that lured the riders to Baker County will stay unsullied.

Fire6g ting payment plan a 6asco Editorial from The (Bend) Bulletin: The federal government's wildfire funding is a time bomb that makes wildfire season worse. The U.S. Forest Service's firefighting budget continues to spiral up as a percentageyear afteryear.Itwas 16 percentofthe ForestServicebudget in 1995. This year, it is expected to hit more than 50 percent. The Forest Service doesn't get more money as fighting wildfires drains its budget. It takes money away from otherForestService programs. It'shad to doitalmost every year since 2000. It means the federal government

takes money to fight wildfire from the very things that can reduce wildfire. It can't do enough of the kind of research it should to learn more about how to prevent and manage fires. It can't do enough of the projects it wants to thin or treat theforestto reduce the probability ofcatastrophicfi res. Although less critical than protecting lives, property and wildlife from wildfire, projects planned to improve trails and other facilities in the forest also can't be done. In Oregon in 2013, m ore than $560,000 in trailsprojects were deferred because the money was needed to fight wildfires, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

It's irresponsible to pay for wildfires this way. But Oregon's delegation has not succeeded in convincing other members of Congress to do something about it. Of course, wildfire funding is not the only problem in federal forest management. It is an immediate one with some agreement in Congress on a solution. Bills in both the House and Senate would pay for the biggest wildfires like the natural disasters they are and not eat away at other programs. That solution makes sense. President Barack Obama has been supportive. Get it done, Oregon delegation.

Students loans shouldn't cut Social Security Editorial from the Pittsburgh PostGazette: Student loan debt dogs not just young people, but an increasing number of retirees. Some 700,000 Americans on Social Security are still paying on student loans, and last year the government garnished a portion of disability and retirement payments due nearly160,000 people with education debt. The statistics show that the studentloan problem transcends generational lines and that any solution must includesome measure offorgiveness for seniors oflimited means. With $1.2 trillion in such debt hanging over the country, the student loan totalhas surpassed credit-card debt,

which hovers at $703 billion. Twothirds of student-loan debt is owed by

peopleunderthe age of40,but$18.2 billion of it is owed by those 65 or older, according to the Government Accountability Office. Some seniors are in this position, not because they were fiscally irresponsible but because of medical calamity. Medical bills are blamed for more than 60 percentofpersonalbankruptcies. Unlike other forms of debt, however, student loans cannot be absolved by bankruptcy; balances chase borrowers to the grave. Federal loans are discharged upon death, but that's small consolation to those who watch balances rise and interest accrue even when they become


unable to work. In one particularly outrageous case, the government is garnishing a portion of the Social Security check of an 80-year-old with Alzheimer's disease. Proposals put forth by President Barack Obama and assorted presidential candidates vary in their calls for loanforgiveness.The federalgovernment has $18 trillion of debt all its own and can't afford to pay everyone's past-due tuition — nor should it. But to dun the elderly, particularly those with limited means or severe health impairments, is unduly harsh public policy. Old age has enough insults all its own; student-loan debt shouldn't be one of them.

A week after announcing that a ticket had been issued for last spring's Tumalo Falls vandalism case, the U.S. Attorney's Office has released how much the Washington man ticketed paid in penalty and repair costs. Scott G. Duke, 57, of Both-

The ticket was for aiding and abettingdamage toa naturalfeature orotherproperty of the United States. Documents released Tuesday show Duke's wife lives in Bend. Last Wednesday the U.S. Attorney's Offlce announced thatafederaltickethad been issued in the case, and that a fine and restitution had been paid. At the time it did not disclose the name of who was ticketed, or the amounts for the fine and restitution. After discussions between officials at the U.S. Attorney's Office and the Central Violations Bureau — a national center in Washington, D.C., holding documents for violationsthe U.S. Attorney's Office last Thursday released a redacted copy of the ticket.

WesCom News Service

Tumalo Falls is west of Bend.

While the ticket gave Duke's name, his city of residencewas not listed and no information was given about the amount of the fine or restitution. After further discussions between the U.S. Attorney's Office and the Central Violations Bureau, the U.S. Attorney's Office Monday released a document listing Duke's city of residenceand a description of what led a U.S. Forest Service law enforcement offlcer to ticket Duke. The U.S. Attorney Office's release of the fine and restitution amounts today came after requests for the information by The Bulletin. The whole hubbub started

back on May 2, when Brett Nelson, 41, of Prineville went to Tumalo Falls west of Bend for a hike with friend Lyle Sweeney, 53, of San Francisco. At the overlook downstream of the falls, Nelson and Sweeney came acrossa boy and girletching their names into the railing with knives. Nelson said he received a rude reception from a man accompanying the kids, now identified as Duke, when he asked them to stop. Sweeney took a photo of the trio, which Nelson then posted on Facebook with a m essage venting hisfrustrations about vandalism. The photo went viral, garnering more than 64,500

shares and launching the story into major newspapers and television outlets. Nelson said he initially only shared it with six friends. "I'm still amazed at how far and wide this thing went," he said today. A Facebook message Nelsonreceived led Forest Service law enforcement officer Mark Ditzel to Duke, according to documents released by the U.S. Attorney's Offlce. The Deschutes National Forest has yet to repairthe damage, said Kassidy Kern, spokeswoman for the national forest. Tumalo Falls has been closed over the summer due to road and city of Bend water pipeline construction. cwe'll get there when we can," she said. Ditzel visited the overlook toinvestigatethevandalism and noted the railings had 130 inscriptions. While Sweeney said it is good the U.S. Forest Service was able to track down and ticket Duke, he was surprised to see how low the fine was. He wondered if $50 was enough to keep someone from vandalizing again. "I think probably the exposure on Facebook was more embarrassing and more of a deterrent than the cost of the fine," Sweeney said.

Trio whothwartedtrainattackhsnsred By Nancy Benac Associated Press

WASHINGTON — This time, they suited up. The three young Americans who thwarted a gunman on a Paris-bound passenger train last month got their moment in the Oval Offlce on Thursday — and they dressedfor it. President Barack Obama praised Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler for teamwork, courage and quick-thinking actionsthat averted "a real calamity." He celebratedthem as three friends who had been headed for a fun reunion in Paris when they"ended up engaging a potential catastrophicsituation and pinning down someone who clearly was intent on doing a lotofharm toa lotofpeople, inflicting terror on the French people." The three sat attentively on an Oval Office couch and chairas Obama praised them as "the very best of America." They previously had been awarded France's highest

honor by President Francois Hollande. They showed up for that hastily scheduled ceremony at the ornate Elysee Palace a little underdressed, in polo shirts and khakis. This time, Oregon National Guardsman Skarlatos and Airman 1st Class Stone were in military uniform, and Sadler, a senior at Sacramento State University, wore a sport coat and open-collared dress shirt. "It's these kinds of young people who make me extraordinarily optimistic aboutthe future,"Obama sald. The three last month subdued a man with ties to radical Islam who boarded the train with a Kalashnikov rifle, a pistol and a box cutter. A British businessman and a French-American also have beenpraised fortheir efforts to stop the gunman. As for what the future holds, Obama said Stone, whose hand was injured in the attack, is "making real progress" and intends to pursue work in medicine, Sadler is studying sports medicine

Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James presented Stone with the Purple Heart in recognition of the injuries he suffered, and he also received the Airman's Medal. Skarlatos was awarded the Soldier's Medal, and Sadler was given the Secretary of Defense's Medal of Valor.

PORTLAND iAPl — A Portland neighborhood is rallyingaround three big sequoiasthatadeveloper plans to cut down. Neighbors have gathered atthebase ofthe 150-foot trees since Monday, when a crew hired by the developer arrived with chainsaws. On Thursday, police removed several protesters from the property. But an environmental activist remained suspended on a platform from one of the trees. Police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson says the activist could be arrested ifhe does not come down and would facecriminal trespass charges. Robert McCullough is president of the Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association. He says the neighbors have been negotiating with the developer for months to buy the property, but were unable to raise the $900,000 sought by Everett Customs Homes. Developer Vic Remmers couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

PORTLAND iAPl — Evidence in hundreds of criminalcasesisbeingreviewed following accusations thata forensic analyst with the Oregon State Police tampered with drug evidence. The analyst, who worked at the agency's lab in Bend, was placed on leave earlier this month, reported The Oregonian Wednesday. The woman has not been identified, but agency spokesman Lt. Bill Fugate confirmed she is under investigation over the handling of drug evidence. The discovery of misconduct puts current cases and convictions in doubt and could cost counties thousands to retestand retry cases.Familiesofvictims and defendants will also be affected as prior cases are called into question. "My concern is for the victims who were injuredmaking them whole," said Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel."And for the suspects, that they had the proper result. This crime strikes at the heart of our justice system." Statepolicenotified districtattorneys acrossthe state on Friday and issued lists detailing the affected cases. Hummel said he must retest the evidence in 502 cases dating back to 2012. The majority of cases with evidence worked by the technician are from Eastern Oregon.

KLAMATH FALLS iAPl — The Klamath County SherifFs Offlce has been temporarily removed from homicide investigations due to ongoing criminal and civil proceedings involving Sheriff Frank Skrah. The Herald and News reports District Attorney Rob Patridge says the decision has been made to ensure homicide investigations would not be affected by issues surrounding the sherifFs office. The removal will ensure the allegations against Skrah don't hinder the county's ability to prosecute homicide suspects, he said. The sherifFs offlce normally contributes two detectives and a supervisor in an investigation. According to a memo sent Monday, the Oregon State Police will now take over the homicide investigations. Skrah was indicted Friday following allegations he used excessive force against inmates. He faces nine misdemeanor charges.

The district will continue to employ strategies developed over the past seven years in its RTI, or Response to Intervention, readingprogram totarget improvement. "RTI catches early problems that in the past we would wait months to address," Palmer said. Under the early intervention system, students are given quick assessments three times a year to evaluate their skills and to check their progress in specific areas, she said. The program, which was startedfor students in Grades K-3 at Brooklyn School has expanded to Grades K-6 at all elementary schools in the district. Math improvement will be addressed in the same way starting this year, Palmer said. The Baker School District had already hired a math specialist to work at Brooklyn Primary School before learning just last month that the district had been chosen as one of five to form a math cadre that will employ the RTI system. Molly Smith was hired as a math coach at Brooklyn and also serves as the school's assistant principal.

The program is sponsored by the Department of Education, which will provide technical assistance and grant money to support development, Sarah Drinkwater, ODE assistant superintendent in the Office of Learningand Student Services, wrote in a letter to Palmer announcing the award. Palmer said the district will work closely with the other districts in the cadre to help students succeed in math. She also will be visiting with administrators at the Bend-LaPine School District, which scored well on this first round of the new tests. Palmer pointed out that the new state standards and the more rigorous testing program is focused on college and career readiness. The test results reflect theincreasedexpectations focused on students in Grades 3-7, she said. 'There have been big steps up in what's expected," she said.'The tests are more rigorous and there is a higher expectation of the level of material students need to understand." As a result, fewer students in those intermediate grades received scores of 3s and 4s. At the high school level, on the other hand, the adjustment was not as largeand as a result,m ore students reached the higher scores. The district is working to align its curriculum across thegrade levelsto better preparestudents forthe next step, she added. After a second year of testingto compare to this irst-year data,thedistrict f will be betterprepared to move forward, Palmer said.

PeytonManning and the Denver Broncos have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs every way imaginable over the years, from playofF shootouts to defensivetug-of-wars. Well, not quite every way. Not until Thursday night. Denver cornerback Bradley Roby returned Jamaal Charles' second fumble 21 yards for a touchdown with 27 secondsleft,completing a stunning comeback in the closing minute for a 31-24 victory — the Broncos' seventh straight over their AFC West rivals. "I'm not quite sure I'd ever been in one quite like that," Manning said."That was a new one."

had given Kansas City the lead, and the seven-time AllPro marched them calmly down field .Manning found Demaryius Thomas for three longreceptions to getdeep into Chiefs territory, then hit Sanders with a strike over the middle on third-and-10 from the Chiefs 19 for the touchdown that kept Denver alive. "That last drive was really good," said Manning, who joined Brett Favre during the game as the only quarterbacks in NFL history with at least 70,000 yards passing. "I'm really proud of our young offensive line — no poise issues, no communication issues." The late-game dramatics transpiredafterthe Chiefs boltedto a 14-0 lead in their home-opener, energizinga boisterous,redclad crowd that had been tailgating all afternoon. But like he has so often against the Chiefs, Manning answered by leading Denver on an 80-yard TD march late in the first half. The capper was a pass over the middle to Sanders, who slipped between the safetiesand somersaulted into the end zone for the 16-yard touchdown reception.

Rizzo hits 30th to lead Cubs win wild-card leaders. Should the teams end up tied at the end of the regular season, Chicago would have home-field advantage,having won the season series with 10 wins in 16 games. Pittsburghbegan the day fourgames behind first-place St. Louis in the NL Central. 'The division title is still the goal," Maddon said."That's what we're after."

Haiti agreed to replace Australia for this game andSunday'sin Birmingham, Alabama. "It would have been very interesting if we didn't have an opponent.

A new program started this month that aims to get more kids — and their families — into America's public lands. EveryKidina Parkis for all fourth-graders (public school, private schooland home school). After receiving their pass, they can receive free admission at national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges and m ore fromSept.1,2015,to Aug. 31, 2016. The program leads up to the 100th birthday of the National Park Service in 2016. According to www., the Obama Administration created this program "to inspire the next generation to discover all that America's public lands and watershave to offer." To partic ipate,fourthgraders can go to the website everykidinapark. gov and obtain a pass, which grants entry to more than 2,000federally managed lands and waters.

TOWERS Continued from Page1A Smith said that even though Verizon customers in Baker City might have adequate reception, the company's engineers have determined that these new towers are needed to increase data capacity and allow more users access to Verizon's network. Smith cited several statistics that showed cellphone use is increasing. She said that 70 percent of 911callscome from cellphones and that more and more households are relying on wireless means to gettheir Internet. Later in the meeting Baker City resident Davey Peterson — who lives next to one of the proposed cell tower sites— asked ifthose statistics were local or national. Smith conceded they were not local. "As most of us know, Baker County is kind of an anomaly," Peterson said. He explained that Baker County and City residents already have access to the internet and some still use DSL. Smith said she understands not everybody wants a cell tower in their backyard. "But at the same time everybody wants their cellphones to work and are becoming more and more dependent on them," she said. "Not just to pick up the phone to call someone, but to use

them forso many purposes and that is growing exponentially." Several residents testified that the 100-foot towers would be visual pollutionand detract from the scenic views that they enjoy. Whit Deschner had another name for it. "It's not a necessity; it's digital pollution," he said. Deschner also pointed out the number of people in attendance who were opposed tothe celltowers. "I think that speaks for itself," he said. Smith could not answer specific questions from the planning commissionersregarding technical reasonsfor the installation of the towers. Before making a decisionabout the projects proposed by Verizon, commissioners want more information about the project from the consulting firm. The Commission continued the public hearings until its next meeting on Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. The proposed cell tower sites are: • 2960 East St. This property, zoned industrial, is just north of D Street, north of the Baker County Fairgrounds. Because the parcel is within100 feet ofa residential zone, the height limitfor structures, without a conditional-use permit, is38 feet. • 2431 11th St. This property, zoned industrial, is between Madison and Campbellstreets, near the railroad. The height limit for the general industrial district is 50 feet.

Continued from Page1A The pickup hit an embankment and rolled onto its top, Ash said. A fire started in the truck's engine compartment, destroying the vehicle and spreadingintothegrass and brush on the east side of Eagle Creek Road. Fire crews slowed the blaze Saturday evening, but on Sunday morning strong westerly winds fanned the lames and pushed the fire f pasta line offi reretardant and beyond several miles to the east. Several dozen residents in Eagle and Pine valleys were put on evacuation notices, but cooler weather and rain showers that started Monday helped crews get a handle on the blaze. No homes were burned, and on Thursday the Sheriff's Office canceled the last evacuation notice. A resident who lives near where Nash's truck crashed reportedthe accident to police, and Deputy Craig Rilee arrived about 4 p.m. on Saturday, Ash said. Rilee noted that when he arrived, Nash, who was not hurt in the crash and got out of the truck before the fire spread,was sitting beside the road and drinking a beer. But Nash denied that he had drunk any alcohol before the crash. And Ash said Rilee concluded that Nash was not impaired at the time Rilee interviewed him. Nash told Rilee he was driving to meet fiiends who were on a hunting trip and camping in the area. Rilee wrote in his report that there was no evidence to prove Nash was driving recklessly, Ash said. "Craig has investigated a lot of wrecks, and I trust his judgment,"Ash said. The firefighting costs for the Dry Gulch fire had

reached $1.5 million by rar




Thursday, according to the Oregon Department of Forestry.

HONOLULU — A tsunami advisory was dropped for Hawaii Thursday, the morning after a powerful earthquake off Chile. But it remainedin effectforpartsof coastal California. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center first issued a more serious tsunami watch for Hawaii shortly after Wednesday's magnitude-8.3 earthquake. Officiais later downgraded that to an advisory, saying no major tsunami was expectedin the state. But they warned that sealevel changes and dangerous currentscould pose a threat to those in or near the water. A 3-foot wave was recorded at Hilo Harbor on Hawaii's Big Island shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday, National W eatherServiceforecaster Tom Birchard said from his Honolulu office. He said he hadn't heard of any significant impacts. Tsunami wave heights across Hawaii were below advisory levels and continued to diminish, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said in canceling the advisory. "Small sea level changes and strong or unusual currentsmay persistfor several additional hours in some coastal areas and appropriate caution should exercised by boaters and swimmers," the center said. In California, a slight ocean surge and powerful currents were reported atpointsalong the entire coast, scientists and local officials said. Ventura Harbor in Southern California experienced a 1.1-foot tsunami, while 0.4 foot heights were reported in San

Scouting imgroves hunting chances t

WesCom News Service file photo

With several wildfires scorching land in northeast Oregon, some hunters could have fewer opportunities to cash in their buck tag


think people who are successful year after year do two things that most other hunters don't do. They scout. They schedule 10 days to hunt. I'm not saying that you can't be successful if you don't do these two things, but you will be a lot more consistent on punching your tags if you do. I think the main reason most people don't scout like they should is because most poor suckers only have 10 days of vacation. Ifhe spends a few of those days scouting and then a week hunting he has no time for his family. So I understand the dilemma, but the more time you can spend on these two items, the more successful you'll be. So let' scoverthebasicson how to scout. If you're hunting in your old hunting area, it won't require as much scouting. You know the lay of the land, how the animals travel, etc., but if there's been a fire or wolves have moved in, things will be all scrambled up so it will be almost like starting anew. So it's necessary to at least scout a little bit even in your old hunting spot. If I'm going to a new area, here's a few things I do. Get maps. I use MyTopo iTrimblel maps a lot. They make almost anything that you can imagine. If you study a map, a lot of times you'll figure out where the game ought to be. Next, don't forget to call the local game warden and biologist. They can be very helpful and have helped educate me on the habits of the local animals, which can vary from place to place. For instance, this year I drew an antelope tag in southwest Idaho — right where the fires have been. Where I'll have to hunt now the antelope behave differently and are in totally different terrain than anywhere that I've ever antelope hunted before. The local game warden and biologist really helped educate me. One disclaimer on Fish and Game, though: don't expect to go in and have them tell you right where to be on opening day so you can blast a big bull. A guide does

The fires that swept across swathes of northeastern Oregon this summer made history. Never had flames blackened so many acres, or forced so many residentstoevacuate. The fires' effects on wildlife are more difficult to quantify, at least in the short term. But as thousands ofbuck deer hunters prepare for the annual rifle season that runs Oct. 3-14, a couple of generalities will come into play, according to wildlife biologists with the Oregon Department of Fish and

The fires could affect buck hunt"If you're glassing iwith binocuers in a more fundamental waylarsor a spotting scope)you'regoing access.

There are no area or road closures in effect for the Cornet/Windy Ridge Fire, but burned trees and rockscould temporarily block roads for hunters who don't happen to have a saw or axe. As of mid-September, the situation was different at the Eagle Complex, which burned about 13,000 acres in the Keating unit. Sectionsofseveralroadswere still closed there, although those closuresmight be canceled before the buck season starts Oct. 3. Besides potential road closures, Primus doesn't expect the Eagle Complex will have a significant effecton deerpopulations,oron deer hunters, in the Keating unit.

Cool, moist areas best locations to find deer Baker County:Archery hunters should find deer and elk around water and cool, moist northern aspects.The continuation of warm temperatures will limit animal activity to early morning and late evening. Remember to checkthe regulations for the area you will be hunting. Wallowa County:Bull elk archery hunting was good for the opening weekend in most units. Hunters are having to deal with very dly hunting conditions. Buck hunters can expect only fair success asdeer numbers are still below management objective and dly conditions will make stalking difficult. Union County:Black bears are plentiful.

The recent rain indeed helps, but with the season still two weeks away, Matthews said it's hard to judge what the conditions will be like when the hunt begins. "Especially since we don't know what the next couple of weeks are going to bring," he said. There is potential for a good buck season in Wallowa County, as the buck-per-doe ratio isatorabove management objective in five of the county's six units, and actual numbers are likely even higher than the ratios, which were taken last year. 'This fall during the buck season we have a higher ratio ofbucks because that figure doesn't account for the yearling bucks that will be available this October," Matthews explained.

WallowaCounty While the rain that has descended on northeast Oregon in recent weeks is definitely a welcome sight, hunters preparing for the deer rifle season, which begins Oct. 3, couldn't necessarily be considered greedy if they wanted more. "If during the buck season we have cooler, moist weather, it always helps the hunters in that regard," said Pat Matthews, ODFW biologist in Enterprise."It just makes hunters' success go up a little bit." That's partially because any additional moisture helps stalking abilities so that hunters aren't crunching through the Wallowa County wilderness when searching for prey. 'The rain at this point mainly just helps hunters be quieter in the woods, but if we have another two

LOCAL MAN HAS A PASSION HE /n /mng's/gng By Gary Lewis


ForWesCom News Service

They called it Imna's land. The word"ha" indicated land controlled by a chief. Thus, Imnaha meant, and means, Imna's land, and a person that stands on one ofthosehigh ridgesgetsa sense of what the chief must have felt when he stood on a high place and looked out over his domain. We stood on a high place and talked to a fellow who mans the fire lookout tower there. He told us that, in all his years at the lookout, this has been his secondquietest fire year since 1993 — "which was a wet year, with a lot of rain through the summer, not like this year — so dry and hot. It's been quiet here, in my little corner of Oregon." My friend James Flaherty and his son Isaac and I were there to scout formule deer,to snifFfor tracks around water holes and look into the canyons with the long glass. But deer were hard to find and there were grouse in large numbers, more grouse than I'd ever seen before. They must have been blue grouse. Ruffeds, in my experience, are usually found a bit lower, down in the canyons. By the time we'd talked to the lookout, both Isaac and I had three grouse apiece for the day. This was the 13-year-old's first grouse hunt, and it was shaping up to be one to remember. It must have been this way in Imna's time. The kids in the tribe would have hunted grouse with slings and stones and bows and arrows. Once they had success and had brought some tasty birds back to the wickiup,

For Island City resident Chad Carlson, waterfowl hunting is an experience worth sharing. So much so that he has taken to guiding hunts during the past decade or so when the opportunity arises. "I've got so much out of waterfowling that I'd like to getotherpeople involved and have them experience the same thing," Carlson said. But the experience, or what even classifies as a successful hunt, he explained, can be more than just getting a goose or a duck. The people can make all thedifference. 'The majority of the time, even if we don't kill a limit ofbirds, we have enough actionand camaraderie that we have a good time," he said."There's not too many ihuntsl that are just absolute failures."

Gettinginto the hunt A big part of why Carlsonled hunts typically result in hunters bringing birds home is that he has close to 25years ofexperience to draw trom — even though he didn't start out as a waterfowl hunter. "It was something I saw on TV in the hunting shows," he said."I didn't grow up doing it. I just kind of picked it up in college." But he became enthralled by it, and soaked up all the information he could gather from hunting shows, videos and magazines.

From calling into guiding "Eventually I got into, I guess you'd call it, the sport of competitive duck and goose calling," he said. Through the world ofbird calls, he became connected with Bill Saunders, a call designer trom Kennewick, Washington, who at the time was working for Pacific Wings Waterfowl Adventures out of West Richland, Washington. Eventually, Carlson, who

Carlson said he has guided 30 to 40 official hunts, mostly in the Tri-Cities area, with a few othersscattered around the state of Oregon.

they'd graduate to bigger game — deer and elk. Isaac's first bird came easy. We arrived in late afternoon and had time for a quick hunt through a standofalderatthehead of a spring. Liesl, my young pudelpointer, locked up as soon as she approached the tree line. Isaac spotted the bird and walked it up and pointed his Remington 870. When the gun spoke, the dog dashed in and Isaac had his first grouse. It was the first grouse for the pudelpointer as well. I had my chance to shoot a rufed grouse over her in the morning. There were at least three in the covey and the biggest one blew out of apatch ofberries. The bird crashed to a load of No. 7-V2s at 35 yards. Liesl and I waded in to the head-high bushes and this time I found the bird before

she did. There were two other birds with this one. We heard them beat their way up into trees. When I was ready to walk away, Isaac

said he'd hang back. He figured two in the bush might be worth one in the hand. When James and I were 30 yards down the trail we heardthe birdfl y and heard the sound of the shotgun as Isaac made a diKcult shot through the trees.

• A hunting trip in the Blue Mountains helps veteran find sense of normalcy By Gary Lewis For WesCom News Service

aAfler I got back from Iraq, I didn't want to hunt for a long time." A lot of things change for a soldier back from war.aAfler I got back, even most music, I didn't want to listen to." Kyle James, who makes his home in Oregon City, is a soft-spoken 30-year-old who used to sit in the turret on an armored Humvee with his finger light on the 240 Bravo trigger. We hunted with him in northeast Oregon's Blue Mountains in late August. There were six of us: James, Phillippe Freeman, Jake Carse, landowner Brad Andrews, Sam Pyke and me. We met in Unity at the Water Hole Tavern and planned the hunt over dinner.W efound out James had grown up in Baker County, and Andrews knew his family. Andrews and Freeman had arranged a damage control tag for elk on Andrews' property in this corner of the Blue Mountains. James would use Freeman's rifle, a long-barreled 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum, topped with a Leupold scope and equipped with a bipod. "I knew I was ready to go hunting again when I wanted to go shooting again." That happened last spring, James said. The IED that blew his Humvee into the air was hidden ina manhole and detonated with a walkie-talkie when the rear axle was over

If the vehicle had rolled one more half-turn it would have crushed him. The doctors told him later he had a concussion, two brokenribs,collapsed lungs, a broken hip and internal injuries. He came out ofhis coma back in the States and redeployed the following summer. Freeman, 49, is a veteran of Operation Desert Storm.

Jake Carse from Home with Heroes. Carse told me about James and soon a plan was coming together. We cut the tracks of a big herd late in the afternoon and found a perch in a hay barn that commanded a view of the bottoms of three canyons.

A shot crashed in the stillness, and a few elk broke downhill for the open alfalfa fields, while the rest of the herd bunched on top of the ridge. We started up the hill to claim James' prize.

Cameron Scott photo

Cameron Scott, right, shown in a photo with a client, hooked his first steelhead at dusk after bugging a fishing friend to stay out a little longer. didn't actually become a steelhead fisherman until I finally arrived in Wallowa County one winter in early January to teach creative writing to Wallowa County's youth as a writerin-residence for Fishtrap, a nonprofit located in Enterprise. I was, at the time, in searchofa differentlife path. Holding down meaningless w inter jobs and breaking ice out of the guides of my fly rod as I slowly contemplated the evening's meal of Top Ramen and froze to death while immersed in the solitude of Rocky Mountain rivers had its charms. But too often, too few. And so, as Ben Hayes and I descended one of the many golden-hued basaltstepped canyons of Wallowa County, it felt like I was coming home. The farther we descended, the more buoyant I felt. I was going fishing, only this time for steelhead. What turned out to be a rather mild late January day with the occasional smolt or whitefish on the line quickly turned late. I sensed, as the hours passed, that I couldn't fly fish for steelhead as I always had for trout. Sure, I dredgedevery possibletrout lie I could find under a slow movingindicator, but it wasn't producing any steelhead. Mulling over multiple steelhead sayings I'd heard over the years like walking-paced water, just this side of swift moving currents and might not even be in the river, I tried to focus and kept pushing myself to getgood drifts. 'You ready to go yet?a Ben asked. "In a second," I replied. The most difficult part about fishing with someone susceptibl e to chance isour Zen-like-Las-Vegas-going-towin-the-next-hand-intensity that turns us into absolute liars. I'd learned all I could

And asIcast,and cast, and cast, and it grew darker everything I knew.

Then I decided it didn't opportunity, not that a good make a difference and put guy like him would have them back on. taken advantage, to take the


low road as often goes with fishing tensions, saying how sorry he was that I lost it, when really he was inwardly happy I had met my indulgence with such disheartening and devastating failure. "Better luck next time." "Bummer, man." ''When a cookie crumbles, it really crumbles. I'll go get you a beer from the cooler." But, for as much as I should have lost that fish among the jumbled tailout ofbouldersasitripped in and out, attempting to tie my line up and under one, I kept the rod tip high, splashed about in the river like amad man as Benran back to the truck for the net, and with Ben's help, landed the steelhead. It turned out to be a small hatchery female, 22 inches, flamed-out scarlet red on the gill plate and bright red toward the tail with a bit of orange toward the belly. It was breathtakingly gorgeous. Ben kept mumbling something about how lucky I was. And I was. All grins. As I lifted both the steelhead andmyselffiom the water, punched Ben on the shoulder and walked back through the descending winter gloom to the truck, I had finally caught the fish in life that contained a handful of shared paradoxes: always moving, river-centric and driven hard by the cycles of life. Sure, there were other fish to catch. Bigger fish. Smaller fish. Fish with teeth and fish without. But this fish, this fish called a steelhead, this was the one, here down in the basalt-stepped canyon, that felt closest to home.

Steelhead fishing in northeast Oregon could bring in some positive results this fall, even if Oregon Department ofFish and Wildlife Fish Biologist Kyle Bratcher is somewhat skeptical of the initial numbers. cWe're looking at a really strong run," Bratcher said. "Right now the guess is somewhere around 20,000 fishon the Grande Ronde and the Imhana iriversl.a That number is the estimate based on the counts received on fish that have cleared Bonneville Dam. But other numbers along the Columbia River have Bratcher waiting to see what becomes of the initial guesses. "Overall for the whole Columbia River Basin, the numbers are down," he said, explaining his skepticism. But evenifthenumber that actually reaches the area is lower than 20,000, its seems likely that steelhead anglers areprimed to have a good season ahead of them. Bratcher noted that "14,000 is a solid number crossing Bonneville," and that anything higher improves the experience. cWe got 19,000 over Bonneville iin 2014l and last year was a phenomenal steelhead year," he said.'You start getting up into 1920,000 range, you're getting into really good fishing." Those high return rates should result in some bettercatching ratesaswell. Bratcher said he likes to see rates below an average of one fish every 10 hours, and said fishermen should see numbers well below that mark. ''When we get these really good runs, we see our catch rates dip down to three to four hours a fish, which is

really good fishing," he said. Steelhead anglers will also benefit fiom an extended season, as a Sept. 4decision by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission added two weeks to the end of the season. Anglers will now be able to fish untilApril 30. The season started Sept. 1. The decision is one that Bratcher pushed for, saying that steelhead fishing is oftentimesgood even late in the season and that the Enterprise office hasn't met its harvest objectives in recent years. cWe've had reports of peoplegoing out the last days of the season and having really good days," Bratcher said. Few steelhead anglers have been out thus far in 2015, which Bratcher said is normal. "October is generally when the fish start showing up," he said."October is one of the better months. The fly fishermen really pick it up." The bag limit for steelhead fishermen is three per day. Bratcher noted that fishing in general has been goodthisyear,in spite ofthe warmer river and pond temperatures and the wildfires that kept anglers away. "A lot of the fishing has actually been pretty decent," Bratcher said."The Wallowa River has been producing some pretty good trout. Bass fishing was good down on the Grande Ronde before the fire came in. Over at Brownlee, bass fishing was really good. Catch rates at Wallowa Lake were really good." The only fishing that was really affected by the high water temperatures was salmon. 'That's a spot where the warm water did hurt us," Bratcher said."It just didn't set up for a very good season. Overall it was pretty mediocre salmon season."

Dixon didn't return a message left by The Associated Press on Monday, and the phone at his home in Mississippi rang unanswered Tuesday. Nine other people, who are from Alaska, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana and Nevada, and two productioncompanies facerelated misdemeanors or tickets. "The Syndicate" is independently produced and purchases air time on the Sportsman Channel, Liberatore said. One of the production companies cited for using footage shot in the preservewithout a permit called the network's decision to suspend the show "unfortunate." However, the statement from Syndicate Hunting of Reno, Nevada, adds: ''While disheartened, we respect their decision to do so." Italsosaysonceitbecame aware of the allegations, it severed ties with Dixon and another person charged. It was unclear when the company found out about the investigation and when ties were cut.

ANCHORAGE,Alaska — Acable television network suspended a hunting show after the program's host and nine others involved in the production were charged in a federal poachinginvestigation at a national preserve in remote northwestAlaska. The Sportsman Channel on Tuesday immediately suspended"The Syndicate" from airing on the network and launched its own internal investigation, said Jim Liberatore, CEO and president of Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks. aWe take this situation very seriously and have acted swiftly to suspend the show, its producers and talent, "Liberatore said in a statement."If true, what has been alleged is clearly unacceptable, unethical and against everything our networks stand for." Prosecutors on Monday said more than two dozen grizzly bears, moose, caribou and Dall sheep were illegally killed in the Noatak National Preserve, which is north of the Arctic Circle and near Alaska's northwestern coast. The illegal kills ended up on the show, authorities alleged. There were at least four hunts

Several grizzly bears are among the more than two dozen animals that have been allegedly poached in Alaska. The television show "The Syndicate" has been suspended in the wake of the killings. conducted in Alaska for the show over the last five years. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Skrocki, the leadprosecutor,said ata news conference Monday that all the Alaska

hunts for the show were conducted illegally but were edited to appear that they were legal. The show's host, Clark W. Dixon, 41, of Hazlehurst, Mississippi, was

ssioners go sightseeing for elk

By Katherine Lacaze The Daily Astoaan

More than a dozen Oregon Fish and Wildlife commissionersand staffpeered through telescopes on the banks of the Neacoxie River Sept. 3. They were seeking elk —and they found them during their daylong tour of fish and wildlife facilities along the North Coast. The Reserve at Gearhart was their first stop, a precursor to the commission's monthly meeting the following day at the Best Western Ocean View Resort in Seaside. The tour provided commissioners a groundlevel look at Clatsop County wildlife and habitat. At The Reserve in Gearhart, commissioners witnessed elk that had separated from the main herd of about 70. Here, the elk are "in their natural element, which is kind of low-density development and golf courses," said Herman Biederbeck, a wildlife biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The reserve is surrounded by two golf courses, Gearhart Golf Links and Highlands Golf Club. Thirty acres of North Coast Land Conservancy land to the east of the reserve are part of the conservancy's Neacoxie Wildlife Corridor project,designed in the 1990stocreate a habitat for wildlife along the Neacoxie River. As the Clatsop Plains get increasingly developed, elk and humans inevitably collide,creating risksfor both.

Wildlife photographer Neal Maine shared photos of what happens when elk and people share the landscape. In one, a young woman scurries away from an elk she angered by approaching the animal and its calf for an"elk selfie." Elaborate landscaping can draw elk into yards where they are unwanted, Maine said, and the animals are known to create traffic hazards crossing U.S. Highway 101 and other roads. Residents have differing opinions about the elk and how to deal with them, Biederbecksaid.Some prefer elk roam unhindered; others, particularly farmers and commercial interests, prefer a more managed approach. Because of strong contrasting opinions, the department tends "to deal with elk issues on an individual, case-bycase basis," Biederbeck said. 'The elk have their pros and cons out here, for sure." Inland, at the Jewell

Meadows Wildlife Area in the Oregon Coast Range mountains, the department manages a different elk population. The 1,114-acre area serves to protect and enhance wildlife habitat, reduce wildlife damage to surrounding properties and provide the public with an opportunity to observe wildlife in a natural setting. Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area Manager Bryan Swearingen helps the department manage the herd's winter habitat and provide supplemental feedingforRooseveltelk and black-tailed deer. The department's management plan at the wildlife areaisdesigned to keep the elk population artificially low, about 225 out of a land capacityofabout 400,Swearingen said. A portion of the wildlife area, near Fishhawk Creek, isdesignated forelk refuge, although some tracts are open

to the public for hunting. The department provides supplemental feed in winter to mitigate the animals'negative impact on the land uses ofadjacentproperties,owned by Weyerhaeuser Co., Stimson Lumber Co. and the Oregon Department of Forestry. To determine population models, the department currently uses helicopters, a costly and potentially risky method. The state plans to partner with Oregon State University to conduct an elk census using unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, which could register data in the sky over the Youngs River basin, Biederbeck said. The wildlife area will provide an outdoor laboratory to cal ibrateand testaerial equipmentbefore expanding the program to nearby controlsites,headded.Success depends on capturing imagery with a resolution high enough to detect and classify the individual elk.

"Heroes Reborn" has a firm end point it moves toward, since Ae show was ordered for a definite 13 episodes.

pretty Arilled to say 'Yes' as quickly and coolly as I possibly could."
