• Eastern Oregon University sees a slight rise in the numbers of student applications By Cherise Kaechele The Observer

Eastern Oregon University is seeing a growing number of applications for this year's freshman class, an exciting prospect for Vice President of Student Services Xavier Romano, though he doesn't want to count his chickens before they hatch. Romano said he won't believe the number is accurate until he sees the "whites of their eyes," which won't require too much of a wait since students start coming back next week. Romano said EOU has received 1,648 applicat ions thisyear,compared to the 1,424itreceived in 2014. 'The residence halls are full," said

Escalating costs

SALEM — While state and federal firefighters are working to get to the end of what may be the costliest wildfire season on record, Congress is gearing up for a fight over how best to pay for the destructiveblazes. Huge stretches of the western United States are still on fire, with more major wildfires flaring up almost weekly during what is typically the tail end of wildfire season. Two fires in Northern California this month displacedthousands ofpeople and burned down entire neighborhoods. Oregon's Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden hopes to highlight the 2015 fire season See Funding / Page 5A

As of Sept. 8, the U.S. Forest Service, which faces a majority of wildfire suppression costs among federal agencies, has spent $1.23 billion so far this fiscal year, not far behind the all-time record of $1.65 billion spent in 2002, adjusted for inflation.

Romano, noting that the residence halls aren't usually that way."That's very exciting." EOU faces a unique problem, which larger universities like the University of Oregon and Oregon State University do not, because it does not require an enrollment deposit from the incoming class. eWe're an access university. We don't have the deposits," Romano said. Larger universit iesask for a depositofhundreds of dol lars,which givesthe schoolsa better idea ofhow many incoming freshmen to expect. "Generally speaking, the enrollment

deposits can be $250to$500, "Romano said."That's too much for EOU istu-


Although the university attracts students with high academic achievements, cWe're still a first-generation institution," Romano said. Romano credits theincrease ofapplications to the university's efforts in promoting EOU across Oregon. eWe'vebeen attacking the territories differently," he said. There are EOU recruiters working in Portland, along the Interstate 5 corridor and in Salem, trying to getstudents tocome to the eastern partofthe state. eWe're working with students and their parents with their financial aid packet," Romano added.

Firecostsrise on Qrv GulchFire Observer staff

HALFWAY — Due to better mapping, the Dry Gulch Fire that started Saturday stands at 17,800 acres and is now 60 percent contained, according to a release from Link Smith, incident commander for the Dry Gulch Fire. All evacuation level notifications for communities surroundingthefirehave been lifted, the release said, and total suppression costs to date are estimated at $1.5 million. Firefighters will continue mopping up hot spots near the fire perimeter to prevent any future flare ups or spreading. Rehabilitation efforts are also taking place torepairthe landscape and infrastructure damaged

by fire suppression efforts. Rehab work includes mending fences and constructing water bars along dozer and hand lines to prevent future erosion from heavy rains. Oregon Department of Forestry's Type 1 Incident Management Team is also preparingtotransition the fire back to a smaller fire management organization. The team is expected to hand the fire back to local jurisdictions at the end of shift todayand travelback totheir respective home units Saturday. There are currently 216 personnel assigned to the fire consistingof48 overhead, 6 20-person crews, 15 engines, two dozers, one water tender and one helicopter.

Fae Alice (Moudyl Hampton was born October 20, 1922 in Keating, Oregon to parents Mabel (Godseyl Moudy and Art Moudy. She died September 6, 2015 at her home in Garden City, ID. She is survived by her eldest son, Tim Hampton (Danal Bend, OR and her daughter, Catherine Hampton of Garden City, ID. Three grandsons: Greg Hampton (Tonyl; Steven Hampton (Deannal; and Scott Hampton (Karenl; one greatgrandson and one great- great-granddaughter. Fae was preceded in death by her husband, of 72 years, Lloyd Hampton in February of 2013 and by her daughter,


she started her nursing career at the Veterans Hospital in Portland, Oregon. She met and married George Follett in June 1953 whom she met while he was recuperating from wounds received while serving in the US Army in the Korean War. Norma and George had four sons, (Boyd, Lyle, Mark and Bretl. They bought the Follett family ranch on the breaks of the Minam River in the early 60's, this is where they raised their family until Norma and George divorced in 1974. Norma worked from 1954 to 1995 at the Grande Ronde Hospital with time off intermittently to raise 4 sons. She worked in many capacities but her final role was as the night shift supervisor. Family and friends from Elgin knew if they were at the hospital there was a friendly local Elgin face looking after them. Norma was one of those people who had an affinity for helping others, which was a primary reason of why Nursing was a draw for her as a profession. She was always interested in finding out if there was something that one of her family members needed assistance with. When there was she was always there to help. If there was a good cause then you could count on her to help as best she could. Norma was a very big sports fan and as an alum of University of OR, she was a long time Ducks fan. She enjoyed attend-

ing sports events for her sons, grandchildren and even the greatgrandchildren. Norma enjoyed attending auctions and seeing what treasures she might find and bring home, she always enjoyed camping and fishing and being outdoors to delight in what nature had to offer. Norma gained an early appreciation for travel when at a young age she attended the World Fair in San Francisco with her Aunt Alice. She later was able to visit those areas that intrigued her, Hawaii, Alaska, Desert South West, New England Fall Color tour by train and any spot she could do some fishing were favorites for her. Norma is survived by: Sons and Spouses, Boyd and Sheree Follett — Elgin, OR, Lyle and Heidi Follett-Elgin, OR, Bret and Shannon Follett- Mead, WA, Brother Norman Tribett-Portland, OR; 9 Grandchildren and 11 Great Grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Preceding Norma in death were her son Mark Follett, great granddaughter Emma Shaffer, parents George and Marie Dolly Tribett, brother Larry Tribett and sister Georgia (Tribettl Corum. Norma Follett's family asks for those of you who knew Norma to send them a story or thought about her that they can share, "the good, the bad and the funny." Please email them to for the family to compile together. We want to make sure that we have stories and thoughts on Norma to be shared, we ask that you send them as soon as possible. /

Drivers, rev your engines. House Bill 3402 will soon allow travelers to legally drive higher speeds on Interstate 84 between The Dalles and the Idaho border starting March 1. Speed limits will also rise on numerous secondary highways in Central Oregon and Eastern Oregon. That's good news for Eastern Oregon motorists. The state is famous for having some of the slowest speed limits in the West, instituted for several reasons, from fuel economy to safety but perhaps not achieving either of those results. Anyone who has driven from Idaho, with an interstate speed limit of 80 mph, to Oregon, at 65 mph currently, will feel like he is crawling through the sagebrush steppes north of Ontario. Now the Oregon Department of Transportation is preparing for the big speed limit switch. ODOT is marking highways and freeways with more no-passing zones and solid yellow lines in the lane oftravelso drivers can safely negotiate the faster speeds. The faster speed lim itsare w elcome. Motorists have vast distances to cover between cities in Eastern Oregon, and most of the roads, long and straight with extensive sight lines, are conducivetofasterspeeds.Most driversw illdrive the speed limit or a little faster, which studies have shown is safer from accidents than dawdling along at 10 mph under the speed limit. Most drivers, regardless of posted speed limits, will go what feels comfortable and safe, and not all will test the new limits and risk a speeding ticket. We're glad Oregon did not attempt to match Idaho on Interstate speed limits. The 70 mph limit for cars and 65 mph limit for trucks is fast enough, a comfortable speed yet not so fast, like 80 in Idaho, where more vehicles will be going difFerentspeeds,contributing tomore accidents. Some people worry that the faster speed limits w ill lead to m oreaccidents orreduced fueleconomy. But according to a study from the Florida Department of Transportation, only 2.2 percent of acci dents are caused by speeding. A biggercause ofaccidents is driversdriving difFerent speeds. This causes more braking, which leads to lower fuel economy, and more conflicts between vehicles. We believe a faster, more realst iicspeed limitacrossOregon'sremote stretches will not lower fuel economy or lead to a big rise in accidents but will actually prove safer in the long run and get people where they need to go quicker.

ixteen candidates remain in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Fifteen of them were invited to Wednesday night's debates. And then there was Jim Gilmore. "I'm very disappointed," the former Virginia governor told me when I reached him on Wednesday. He paused, as if reflecting on his word choice."Uh, actually, I'm angry," he revised. In fact, "I'm really upset about this." Gilmore warmed quickly to this thesis. "It's wrong and against the public interest," he said of debate host CNN's decision to disallow his participation, even inthe pre-debatedebate ofm inor candidates, based on hissub-1-percent standing in the polls. "I just am rebelling against the unfairness of it all and the wrongness of it all," he continued."CNN is not being faithful to the stewardship they've taken on." Gilmore would like to take up his grievance directly with CNN's Washington bureau chief, Sam Feist, but"the guy won't even call me back, which I consider a personal insult," he said. And so the former governor, Republican National Committee chairman and chairman of a national homelandsecurity commission did the only thing he could do: While the other candidates reached tens of millions of Americans on the airwaves, Gilmore went to his campaign office in Alexandria, Va., and tweeted out his own answers to his 1,500 followers using the hashtag ¹GOPDebate: "Trump doesn't understand the Constitution." "Dr. Carson waflles." "If Santorum becomes president he will have to obey the law to." isicl "Fiorina ducked the question." "Huckabeecall sfordisobedience of the law." "Gov. Walker does not understand how wages go up." But as his tweets vanished into the ether with scarcely a retweet, Gilmore showed his frustration; not an hour into the rollicking, interminable debate, as the candidates on the stage finally ganged up on front-runner Donald

protested, and he had a point that his exclusion — even from the undercard debate— seemed gratuitous. George Pataki and Lindsey Graham made theJV event even though they averaged0.5 percentin recentpolls,and CNN bent its requirements to allow businesswoman Carly Fiorina to join the main event Wednesday night. "And yet they turn around and draw a strong line on me?" Gilmore said. But none of this changes the governor's strategy: to "finish as high as possible" in New Hampshire, then ride his momentum into South Carolina. How high?"I'm not going to make a prediction." In theory, there should be room for a "common-sense conservative" such as Gilmore on the debate stage and in the race. He thinks Trump and others are too harsh on immigration, Graham is too hawkish and Jeb Bush is wrong on education. He believes John Kasich is wrong on entitlements and Ben Carson is wrong on veterans. "I am a grown-up in the room," he told me. Maybe that's his problem. But the governor isn't bowed."I ain't gettin' out — period," Gilmore said. Not getting out — yet not being let in.

Trump, Gilmore tweeted that it was "all process and nothing to tweet about." Live-tweeting the debate from which he was excluded was but one of many indignities Gilmore had endured of late. For one, he seems to be doing his own staff work. He has been known to send reporters emails from his Gmail address, providing his cellphone number and asking them to call. I used the number to call him Wednesday, and he was grateful for the attention:"It's like water in adesert tom e." Iattempted to serve as an oasisfor the parched candidate. Could he say how much money he has raised? "Nope, can't do that," he answered. iHe has not yet had to file a report to the Federal Election Commission.) Would he run ads? ''We'll augment our strategy with ads if we raise enough money to run ads," he replied. How about campaign stafP. "OK, let me count," he replied."Dan. Dick.... Alex. Um, let's see here. Um, JefK ... I think seven at this point," although"some are part time." Gilmore is aggrieved by my Post colleagueDavid Fahrenthold,who wrote that Gilmore"has not held a single formal campaign event with actual voters present." The governor finds this to be "a little cute" because he actually does go to campaign events — just not his own."I don't need to" have campaign events, he said, because there are plenty ofcommittee meetings and candidate forums he can attend. In fact, he has visited New Hampshire nine times this year, he said. But with little to show for it. CNN said Gilmore was the only candidate who had been in either oflast month's Fox News debates who didn't meet its requirement of averaging 1 percent supportin any threepollsreleased over a two-month period. "They're being inflexible with me!" he

FUNDING Continued from Page1A to push a bill through the Senate this fall that would allow federal agencies to pay for fires without having to use money intended to prevent them. "I've made it clear to conservatives that as it relates to fire funding fixes I'm very open for ways to compromise and findcommon ground,"Wyden said in an interview this month. The House and Senate have long bickered over how to reform the way federalagencies pay tocombat large wildfires like those that devoured more than four dozen homes in Oregon this year. When the U.S. Forest Service spends its entire allotted amount, it dipsinto otherreserves thatare set asideto pay form easures that prevent wildfires, like forest thinning. The process is called"fire-borrowing," and the Forest Service has needed to dip into its other funds six times in the last decade, according to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. On Monday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture had to transfer another $250 million from other accounts to pay for fire suppression, bringing the totalfire-borrowing costsfor2015to

$700 million. The newest costs as of Sept. 8 showed the US. Forest Service, which faces a majority of wildfire suppressioncostsamong federal agencies,has spent $1.23 billion so far this fiscal year. That's not far behind the all-time recordof$1.65billion spent in 2002, adjusted for inflation, according to Jennifer Jones, a spokeswoman for the Forest Service in Boise, Idaho. "It sure wouldn't be surprising if we hit the record," Jones said, noting 40 uncontained large wildfires continue burning nationwide. In the heat of fire season, the Forest Service spent $243 million in a single week fighting fires. Suppression has eaten up more than

COUNTY which drew so many people that there wasn't time to hear everyone. Everyone who came Wednesday, however, had the opportunity to speak their mind. Jay Mackley, of the Union County Republicans, urged the commissioners to take their time and carefully analyze the evolving marijuana front in Oregon before making a decision. "I am urging caution ... slow down and evaluate," Mackley said. The Union County commissioners conducted the hearing because they wanted to get input from the publicbeforedeciding whether to opt out of a portion of Measure 91, the measure voters passed in Novemberthatlegalized the possession, sale and production of marijuana in Oregon. Some municipalities have the option ofbanning the saleand production of marijuana under House Bill 3400, which was passed earlier this year. Municipalities have this option if they are in counties, such as Union County, in which at least 55 percentofthose voting cast ballots against Measure 91. Most towns in Union County have already chosen to opt out. Union County is

hearing urged the county to opt out because this will give ittime to observe othercounties in operation and see how they manage recreational marijuana. Union County could learn what works and w hat does notbefore possibly voting to opt back in and allow the sale and production of marijuana, suggested a local resident. Others pointed out that Union Countymay nothave this luxury because it is not clearifcountiesthatoptout will later be able to opt back in and allow the sale and production of marijuana. ''We need to geta legal opinion," Commissioner Steve McClure said. McClure and fellow commissioners Mark Davidson and Jack Howard all said they want to get more information before deciding whether the county will opt out. Howard said he is very interested in having Union County voters decide the issue in an election. He knows that the campaign for such an election would be spirited. 'There is passion on both sides," he said. Contact Dick Mason at 541-786-5386 or dmason 0 Follow Dick on Twitter 0 IgoMason.

Senate to pass the Resilient Federal Forests Act, which had support from two Oregon Democrats but was largely opposed by other House Democrats and was opposed by Wyden when it passed the House. The bill also addressed the fire-borrowing issue. "People are pretty hot in Eastern Oregon about what happened this summer, and they want changes in federal forest policy, which legislation we passed in the House would give them," Walden said in a statement Tuesday. "It's long overdue for the Senate to take action." Wyden and Sen. Mike Crapo, a Republican from Idaho whose state was also charred by wildfires this year, both said this month they're willing to lookatdifferentways to address the budgeting problem. "My 10 colleagues, including Budget Chairman%yoming Republican Sen. M ike) Enzi and Sen. Wyden, arevery aware that we have opportunities as we move up to the resolution of all of the budget issues this year to move it forward," Crapo told The Bulletin.

Wyden is working with a bipartisan group of senatorsto addressitbefore2016. "I want to get it done this fall because the fire specialists say that the fire season is going to run into October, and they say they can hardly tell when one fire season ends and another begins,"Wyden said. Wildfires so far this year burned nearly 9 million acres, an area bigger than the state of Maryland. That's well abovethe10-year average of6m illion acres burned with about a month still left of the typical fire season.

one of the last entities in the county to decide. The county commissioners' decision will affect the unincorporated parts of the county, any land outside city limits. A concern expressed by many speaking at the hearing was the welfare of children. A number of people, including Art Rhodes of La Grande, said that increasing the availability of marijuana in Union County would ultimately be bad for children. ''Who is speaking for the children?" Rhodes asked. Ernest Humphrey of La Grande, who uses medicinal marijuana to deal with chronic pain, advised the county to be proactive and begin preparing to address the issue. "Marijuana is not going away," Humphrey said. Mike Voss, a local merchant who sells firearms, urged the county to opt out. He stressed thatthe possession of marijuana is not legal under federal law. The legalization of marijuana in Oregon thus puts merchants like him in an awkward situation. "I can't legally sell guns to anyone who is a user of marijuana," Voss said."If I smell marijuana on someone'sbreath,Ican'tsella gun to them." Marie Rampton of La Grande also urged the county to opt out, stressing that she believes legalizing

Faith, rights at center of debate over judge's marriage stance By Emily E. Smith

In a formal complaint, which will be the subject of a With little fanfare, Judge public hearing on Nov. 9, the commission accuses Day, a Vance Day stopped doing Marion County Grcuit Court weddings. Then came the questions judge, of violating several — from the Oregon Commisrules within the state Code of sion on Judicial Fitness and Judicial Conduct and the state Disability and reporters and constitution.

lage meant to honor veterans, he said. The felon was participatingin Veterans Treatment Court, which Day oversees. The judge said he went to the man's home to fix his broken heat source and never saw him handle an unloaded pistol that Day's son had brought. In his answer to the formal complaint, Day said the commission investigated him for expressing his religious and political views, protected by the FirstAmendment, and is now seeking to unseat him. Day said his opposition to gay marriage, borne out of deep Christian faith, seems to be the crux of the commission's problem with him. In his response to the commission, Day acknowledges

there was a time when he asked his staff to send samesex marriage applicants to another judge, after U.S. District Judge Michael McShane's 2014ruling effectively legalizinggay marriage in Oregon. He said he eventually stopped doing all weddings. Day said he doesn't dislike

gay people. "I work with many men who are gay or women who are lesbians," he said."I respect them, care for them. They're my colleagues, my friends, and I respect their relationships. At the same time, I request that those who are my friends and people of goodwill also respect my conscience." He just doesn't believe in

theirmarriages. "I believe our creator has defined marriage," he said. "It's not that I have anything against gay and lesbian couples. But I believe in the institutio n ofm arriage.It'sbeen defined, and I believe that to call it something else makes it not marriage." Day said he never considered weddings merely an official function. 'You're creating something that's unique, one-of-a-kind and supposed to be beautiful," he said.'This isn't a rubberstamp event. I put myself into that wedding. It's a joyous occasion." He can't do that for a gay marriage, he said. "Ifyou ask me to participate

in a ceremony that has been viewed as a sacrament by the church since the church's beginning, you're asking me to violate my conscience. Why would anyone of goodwill require me to do that?" Legalscholarshavea different take. They predict Oregon law could make it diKcult for Day to argue his case on First Amendment claims. Unlike federal law and some other states, Oregon doesnothave areligious exemption statute. "People here in Oregon who don't want to facilitate same-sex marriage, they don't have much of a claim on the religious liberty side," said Jim Oleske, a Lewis & Clark associat e law professor.

Arts Center East, farmers' market partner for art tour show ByWilliam Bowman ForThe Observer

Zucchinis and tomatoes, cabbage and carrots. Apples, plums and peaches. Donuts, tamalesand Yes, art. Blacksmithing. Glass blowing and ceramics. Batik painting and more. All will be showcased from 9 noon Saturday at

the La Grande Farmers Market during the Art Center East Studio Tour. Linda Schreiner, president of the Art Center board, said that the goals of this show have always been to give the community a behind-thescenes look and to help the artists sell their wares. In past years, community

members have driven from La GrandetoElgin and Cove to visit local professional artists and studios such as Tom Diamond, The Waypoint Studio and The Potter's House. This year, though, the artists are coming to the market for easier access. Darcy Dolge, director of the Art Center, said that even

though past years made for an enjoyable day trip, collaboration with the farmers' market will simplify access for both artists and community members. She addedthatthefarmers' market and the Art Centermake for aptpartners. "Our community is very agriculturally based," she

said."Farmers market is such a huge deal for our community. So it's nice to have thatcollaboration tofocus on both our areas, arts and agricultural. It makes us who we are as a community." Dolge said she believes shows like this bring that art to the forefront of community members' consciousness. Sch-


reiner added that this show will also give visibility to local artists and the valley's vibrant art community. At the event, artists will bothcreateand selltheir wares. A blacksmith, a glass blower and a batik painter arejusta few ofthe artists who will showcase their creative process.

PENDLETON — Among the trash that accumulates along the banks of the Umatilla River in Pendleton was a type oflitter unique to the Round-Up — horse dung. Multiple reporters for the East Oregonian spotted Round-Up volunteers clearing horse dung from the Bedford Bridge and disposing of it by shoveling it over the railings and into the river. Along the banks of the river Wednesday, numerous pieces ofhorse dung could be seen in and around the river. Carl Culham, the Round-Up director of communications, first denied that rodeovolunteers were disposing of horse manure that way. Later, he said some were not holding themselves to the Round-Up's standards and future volunteers would be specifically advisedtocollectexcrement and dispose of it at the grounds.

thought ofhorse waste being shoveled into the river. "It's a sad thing and that should not happen," said John Staldine, the duector of the Umatilla Basin Watershed Council. Staldine saidthe presence ofhorse feces in the water could raise the risk of E. Coli and cause other sanitation issues, especially among people who use the Umatilla River for recreational purposes. He said he would look into the matter and advise the Round-Up against the practice. Pendleton Public Works Director Bob Patterson was similarly displeased. "That's not cool," he said. Although he was concerned that horse manure could add ammonia to the river's water during a period oflow flow, Patterson said the city's drinking waterwould not be affected becauseit was drawn further upstream. Patterson said the city would discuss the issue with the rodeo.

La Grande's Ari Rich, right, tries to tip the ball over the outstretched arms of Vale defenders Preslee Jensen, left, and Abby Hamilton during Thursday's nonleague volleyball match at La Grande High School. The Vikings knocked off the Tigers in four sets.

• Early onslaught from Vale too much to overcome as Tigers fall in four sets Thursday night By Ronald Bond The Observer

An early offensive barrage from the Vale volleyball team was ultimately too much forLa Grande to overcome Thursday as the Vikings won in four sets, 25-6, 25-14, 20-25, 25-18,to spoiltheTigers'home opener. "Ithink we were nervous,"La Grande head coach Melinda Becker-Bisenius said.'This was our first home game, so there was a lot of jitters and we let it get to us the first couple of games." Vale threatened to run away with the match quickly, burying the Tigers the first two sets and jumping out to a 15-11 lead in the third

am still trying to figure

t out what to make of the La Grande football team's hot startto the2015 season and deciding whether to drink the Kool-Aid that says the Tigers are for real this fall. There are many reasons I should. With their 41-7 whipping of Weiser, Idaho, last week,

the Tigers won their first two games that shocks me. It's the way they have.

Cantrell named CCCPlayer of Week The Eastern Oregon University volleyball team collected a trio of three-game sweeps last week. Senior Piper Cantrell was among the standouts, and the Mounties' libero was named Cascade Collegiate Conference Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts. The Ashland native recorded 28 digs in the three wins and leads the team with an average of 4.72 digs per set.

A cross-court passfrom Aviladropped in the back end of Vale's court to pull the Tigers within 17-11, and La Grande cut the deficit to just two at 19-17 after a Katie Stone ace and a kill by Ari Rich. But the Vikings thwarted La Grande's second rally attempt. A kill by Preslee Jensen stretched the lead back to three and keyed a match-ending 6-1 run, capped with a kill from Dallie Johnson. ''We refocused on our game plan," Vale head coach Shannon Steele said of the key for her team regrouping in the fourth set.'We revisited what our game plan was verbally and we went from there." Vale started the match with a flurry, scoring the first 10 points led by four Hamilton kills. See Opener/Page 10A

Nation & World News

Closure plan won't recommend US site WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will bypass the diKcult political decision of selecting a single alternative U.S. site for the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention facility when it sends Congress its much-anticipated plan for shuttering the controversialprison. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work, whose department has been evaluating severalprospective sites,told CQ he expects the administration to submit its plan within the next month. But rather than choosing one domestic facility to house the detainees still held at Guantanamo, Work said the report will include a menu of optionsand the costsassoci-

ated with each of those. That approach will fall flat with Senate Armed Services Chairman JohnMcCain, who has been pushing the administration for months to submit a detailed roadmap for Guantanamo's closure.

Gray wolf confirmed in Michigan DETROIT — It took a year and a half, but there's now no doubt: The animal spotted on a trail camera in Emmet County in the northwestern Lower Peninsula was indeed a gray wolf — only the second one confirmed in the Lower Peninsula since 1910. The wolf was confirmed on the reservation land of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. After spotting wolf-like

e e


tracks and seeing what appeared to be a wolf on a trail camera in March 2014, tribal biologists were able to collect scat and send it to Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, for analysis. The results came back last week and confirmed a gray wolf. They also show it is not likely an escaped captive wolf, as its genetic information closely matches that of wolves in northeast Ontario.

national elections. In the announcement aired early Thursday on national television and radio, the statement said that the transitional government had been dissolved.

Death toll in California Fires jumps as 2 more bodies found The Associated Press

Robert Gauthier/LosAngelesTimes

Republican presidential candidates Ben Carson, left, and DonaldTrump during the GOP debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, on Wednesday.

GOPcandiliatesconfrom t fronl-runnerIrumglllieiIIte By Michael A. Memoli and Seema Mehta Tnbune Washington Bureau

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. Republicans eager to dislodge Donald Trump from his perch at the top of primary polls and reset the turbulent2016 presidentialrace showed new willingness to directly confront thereal-estate magnate in a marathon debate Wednesday, questioning his temperament, authenticity and conservative bona fides during a critical showdown at the Reagan Presidential Library. For one-time front-runner Jeb Bush, that meant going toe-to-toe with Trump over his business record while portraying himself as a "steady hand." For Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who spiked in early polling but fell to earth as Trump took off, it meant highlighting his successful battles with labor unions while rebutting the Democratic talking points he said Trump had borrowed. aWe don't need an apprentice in the White House," he -

said to Trump, in a jab at Trump's old TV show.aWe need someone who can actually get the job done." And for Carly Fiorina, the former business executive who graduated to the main debate after a shining performance in last month's undercard forum, it meant dismissing Trump as "an entertainer" while positioning herself as someone who could withstand the grind of a national campaign. Trump seemed to nod toward humility in his opening statement, eschewing a "braggadocious" style, but he quickly reverted to form. He zinged Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul over his low poll numbers after Paul called him "sophomoric," and he noted that Walker went"down the tubes" in Iowa. At one early point, as he and Bush sparred, Trump tweaked his rival by acknowledging Bush's newly aggressive approach:"More energy tonight. I like that." For the sprawling cast of Republican presidential contenders running in Trump's

Shirley Burns said her 65-year-old brother-in-law might have been sleeping in his trailer and didn't realize the fire was speeding towardhim on Saturday. "Itcame in veryfast,it was a monster," she said from her home in Lodi. She recalled Burns as a laid-back guy who sold items at a Clear Lake flea market and lived in a trailer at the family's metal recycling yard. "He remindedme ofa big Teddy bear," Shirley Burns said."He was a real kind and gentle person. He had a beard and looked like a

MIDDLETOWN, Calif. — Two more bodies were found in the burned ruins ofhomes in California, bringing the death toll to five from two of the most destructive wildfires in the state in recent memory. Both fires continued burning Thursday, but cooler weather and rain helped firefighters gain ground on the blazes that have destroyed more than 800 homes. 0$cial identifications have not yetbeen made, but the sheriff's office said the two bodies found in Lake County were presumed to be those of Bruce Beven Burns and former San Jose Mercury News police

shadow, the debates in Simi Valley offered a chance to m ake their casesbeforea television audience likely in the tens of millions. But it also emerged as a test of viability for oncetouted contenders who've been upstaged by political outsiders, and others suddenly struggling to demonstrate they still belong in the conversation at all. Italso proved to be something of an endurance test for the leading contenders, as they answered questions for more than three hours on topics including immigration and abortion, terrorism and the Iran nuclear deal, and even vaccinations and which woman should appear on the

He last spoke with his familyon Saturday before authorities found his burned-out car on a route he would have used to escape. His daughter Joselyn Neft previously said Adela Neft repeatedly called her husband Saturday to tell him to leave the house, but he told her he didn't think the fire was coming toward him. Neft's house was in the same area where Barbara McWilliams, 72, was found dead. She told her caretaker she didn't want to leave her home near Middletown and would be fine.

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, 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.

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."

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.

About the game

Coming off three straight losses to open the season, Eastern Oregon University doesn't get any breaks with its home opener. Such is life in the Frontier League. The Mountaineers welcome a hot No. 15 Montana Tech to Community Stadium Saturday. The Orediggers moved into the NAIA Top 25 after upsetting No. 7 Carroll College 19-10 last weekend in Butte, Montana. That allowed Tech to become the fourth Frontierteam in the top 25. 'The Frontier is a crazy league," Eastern cornerback Byron Benson said."Anybody can lose each week." The Mounties, conversely, have been onthe opposit e spectrum of that to this point. The Mounties had a shot to turn the season back around, but No. 4 Southern Oregon University scored the final 24 points last weekend to salvagea 38-35 comeback victory in Ashland. "A lot of our guys haven't been in situations like it was at Southern, and we've got to be able to learn from that," Eastern head coach Tim Camp said. "Nobody wants to start out 0-3. At the same time, I'm so happy with some of the kids' progress and the way that the team has bounced back this week." In order to make the present a joyous one, Eastern must contend with a balanced offensive team. The Orediggers have scored 77 points through the first two games and lead the Frontier in rushing yardage per game (261.5), and sit second in passing yardage per game

SERIES HISTORY Eastern Oregon and Montana Tech have met a total of 25 times, with the Orediggers holding a slim 13-12 overall advantage. Recently, however, it's been the Mountaineers that have controlled the series, winning seven of the last nine meetings, including both games in 2014. OREDIGGERTO WATCH It's not common for a kicker to be a standout, but Montana Tech's Matt Berg has proved to be a weapon for his team. He made all four of his attempts in the upset win over Carroll College, icing the game late with two field goals in the fourth quarter.

Tim Mustoe/The Observer

Eastern Oregon University quarterback Zach Bartlow, in red, runs a play during practice Tuesday. The Mountaineer offense must contend with a Montana Tech defense that is giving up just nine points and 237 total yards per game, both of which rank at the top of the Frontier Conference.

(253). Quarterback Quinn McQueary leads the conference in total offense with 268 combined yards per game, and running back Nolan Saraceni averages 101.5 yards per game, second in the Frontier. '%e're looking forward to it," Eastern safety Adam Bese said. '%e've always had some pretty competitive games with Tech. They've got a new quarterback who's a pretty good athlete,so we'll be looking to contain him, and we'll have to look out for the

running back, who's pretty big." Defensively, Tech has held opposing ground games to 86.5 yards per game, tops in the conference. Teams haven't found the aerial attack any easier with Tech, limiting opponents to 150.5 passing yards per game, second in the Frontier. "They're extremely aggressive and physical up front," Eastern quarterback Zach Bartlow said. "If we don't match their physicality, it should be a long day for us. Butifwe do, we should have

1. Carroll College: Quarterback Mac Roche struggled mightily in a 19-10 loss to Montana Tech last weekend. Roche had just167 yards and threw two interceptions. If it continues in the coming weeks, the Fighting Saints will drop in the polls. 2. MontanaTech:The Orediggers are sky high after upsetting No. 4 Carroll last weekend. It will be interesting to see if the upset was an aberration or a trend this season. 3. Southern Oregon: The Raiders escaped with a 38-35 win over Eastern Oregon Saturday. Running back Melvin Mason is third in the Frontier with 84 rushing yards per game. 4. Montana Western: The Bulldogs outgained the vaunted rushing attack of College of Idaho, 284-170, in a 2420 win Saturday. 5. College of Idaho: After defeating Eastern Oregon, theYotes suffered a letdown in the loss to the Bulldogs. 6. Eastern Oregon: The Mounties must rebound after Southern came back from a 21-point deficit Saturday. 7. Rocky Mountain: The Battlin' Bears blasted MSU-Nolthern 46-0 last weekend, but now have four of their next five games on the road. 8. MSU-Northern: The Lights have just 21 points through three games, but running back Zach McKinley leads the conference with 350 rushing yards.

5. USINGTHE HOME MOMENTUM It sounds like a simple answer, but it feels very important. Eastern is reeling and needs a win. If the home crowd can get behind the team and give them a boost, it may make the ultimate difference.

KEY STATISTIC:The bell cow for the Orediggers had the lone touchdown in the win over Carroll

KEY STATISTIC:Eastern's linebacker leads the team with 40 tackles, and also has one interception

Montana Tech used a powerful ground attack to pull the 19-10 upset over then-No. 4 Carroll College last Saturday, churning out 226 yards on the ground. At the forefront of that attack is running back Nolan Saraceni, who rushed for 102 yards on just 10 carries and scoredTech's only touchdown. That gave the 5-foot-10, 195-pound junior his second-straight100-yard game after blistering Montana State-Northern for 101 yards and four touchdowns in the Orediggers' 58-14 victory in the season opener.

The defense for the Mountaineers has had significant issues early on in the season, with stopping the run one of the biggest. But the defensive unit has had a few standout players through the first three games, and Gary Posten may be that side's MVP so far. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound redshirt senior provides an intimidating presence in the middle of the field for Eastern. Posten has been consistent for the Mounties as well, with nine being his lowest amount of tackles in a game. He had18 tackles in the season opener against College of Idaho.

The timeisnowforEasternstarsto glaylikeit Football can be a very complex game. Each player must know a ton of assignments and plays all while functioning as one piece of an 11-person unit. But there's a reason sayings like "beat the man in front of you" still exist. Because at its very root, footballcan be avery sim ple game, as well. And one of the basic principles is that a team's stars have to act like stars when the game is on the line. That's exactly what Eastern Oregon University needs for the rest of the season. Head coach Tim Camp told me as much during a practice earlier in the week. 'They've got to take the reigns a little bit," he said ofhis leaders.

Quarterback Zach Bartlow is off to a solid start with of more than 18 minutes. That's 731 yards and seven touchdowns, when Billingsley, Bartlow or running back A.J. Prom had to come and backfield mate Jace Billing-


through with a clutch play that galvanized the team. In the Southern Oregon loss, the offensive playmakers couldn't make the big play down the stretch. But it also obviously is on the defensive standouts. The Raiders scored the final 24 points. Where was the big stop on third down by defensive lineman Kyle Lanoue or Posten? Or a momentum-swinging interception from Benson or safety Adam Bese? Those stars have that ability, and they've played solid ball for the most part. But they have to impose their will and be the reason the Mounties win. There's no more tomorrow — that time is now.

Captains called upon to lift Eastern

out ofhole By Josh Benham The Observer

Eastern Oregon University was on the brink of a season-changing win. Up 35-14 over then-No. 1 Southern Oregon University with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter last weekend, the Mountaineers appeared on their way to reversing momentum, knocking off the defending NAIA champs and taking a 1-1 Frontier Conference mark into back-to-back home games. Instead, the Raiders snuffed out all of that with 24 unanswered points to close out a 38-35 comeback and crush the hopes of an Eastern upset. With No. 15 Montana Tech coming to town and Easternholding an 0-3 overallrecord, there's no rest for the weary, and the team knows there's no time to hang their heads and dwell on the past. It's a typical cliche in sports, but it's fitting here. The players are at a point where they simply must focus on each play, each quarter, each game, and not get sucked into thinking about the "what ifs." ''We're just looking to move to the next game," senior safety Adam Bese said. "Yeah, we had a missed opportunity against Southern, and that's unfortunate for us. We kind of dug ourselves a little bit of a hole. But we'll be looking to take it one game ata time and go B es e 1-0 this week." That's exactly what the captains and leaders have been preaching all week at practice. Those elder Mounties, including captains Zach Bartlow, Jace Billingsley, Gary Posten and Bese, have head coach Tim Camp confident in their ability to bring the team out of the weeds by leading by example. "I couldn't be more proud of the way that they carry themselves and how they've responded," Camp said of his core veterans. "They won't allow anybody to feel sorry Bart l ow for themselves. Jace is, 'I'm going to show you how I can do it,' but he'sgot somuch better atbeing vocal. Zach is the same way. Gary is,'I'm going to go and get an 18-tackle game.' But at the same time, no battle's ever been won without a vocal leader. Those guys have to have the ability to make other people around them better, and that's where we're at right now." So Camp is hoping to see more of the upperclassmen become more outspoken in urging on teammates, much like junior running back A.J. Po rm Prom does. "Really it's just about having a lot of energy and keeping imy teammates') heads up," Prom said ofhow he approached this week. Bartlow said he's more of a lead-byexample type, but knows his emotion is needed as well. "I just try to be consistently positive and bring a little bit of energy on offense," the quarterback said."If I do my work and am excited to be out here every day, I think that'sgoing to bea good message tothe guys." Seniors like cornerback Byron Benson have been well aware that their attitudes will have a trickle down effect on the younger players. "I know that the younger guys look up to us, being seniors and juniors," he said. "It's very important to get everybody on board and follow our vision." But it's also been important to make sure the team knows that there's still a chance to get to where the Mounties want to finish. ''We could very easily be 2-1 now instead of 0-3," senior Jace Billingsley said. ''We've just got to put four quarters together. We've played great teams, but the losses had more to do with our mistakes than anything else. All the seniors want to finish have a great year, and I think we're hungrier than ever now. Because we realizethat we can be a greatteam."

dnt story dnt I t h ink continues to be some&ing dnt's fascinating, of people dealing w!4 almost primal questions: What's happening to me? How am I connected? What does it all mean?" "Heroes Reborn" has a firm end point it moves toward, since Ae show was ordered for a definite 13 episodes. Coleman is glad to be a part of it, noting Aat when "Heroes" had no follow-up "after a couple of years, I never really Aought about it again. So when Tim called me and safd, 'I want you to come on board, and HRG will basically httfill Ae same kind of role' — he was always connective tissue between different stories, different characters, difFerent worlds — I was

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