As tire season grows closer in Oregon, the federal air tanker fleet is a quarter of what it was six years ago. The U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Lan d Management had more than 44large air tankers under contract in 2006, said Sen . Ron Wyden, D-Ore. It starts this year with 11. "This is going to put communities at risk this summer," he said. When the federal air tanker fleet was larger, there were more air tankers in the stale -including one in La Grande. During a Thursday visit to Butler Aircraft Co. in Madras, which operates air tankers for the state, Wyden said he'd like to see the federal fleet expanded to 20 air tankers as soon as possible. Tn February, the U.S. Forest Service put out a report saying the federal government would like to update its fleet with faster, larger and more reliable planes. Most of dte planes n ow in use are old P-2Vs, a Lockheed plane originally design ed to chase submarines, dtat face retirement by 2021. The other air tanker is a Rritish Aerospace 146. The federal government is finalizing contracts to bring in two other air tankers, said .Jim Hubbard, deputy Forest Service chief. 1\nd

BILL RAUTENSTRAUCH I The Observer LA GRANDE COMMUNITY and Economic and Development Director Charlie Mitchell addresses the small crowd that turned out for

Monday's informational meeting on the upcoming Big H streetscape project. Mitchell said the project, scheduled to be complete in the early fall, will cause some inconveniences for people in the downtown area.

On June 1, 2009, General Motors Corp. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection under a plan to make the world's second-larg est

La Grande Public Works Director Norm Paullus said during the meeting that many alleyway approaches will he rebuilt, as part of a separate project funded by a grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation. At times, alley crossings will be closed off.

The City of La Grande Urban Renewal Agency is fund· ing the Big H project witl1 a $1 million loan from Wedbush Securities, and Ll1e grant money from ODOT In addition to reconstruction of sidewalks, alleys and alley approaches, the project includes new lighting, planting of additional tress and installation of benches, planters and additional

waste cans. During his project overview, Mitchell said that downtown improvements have been on Ll1e city's radar screen since Ll1e Urban Renewal District was formed in 1999. "Part of the plan calls for streetscape work and amenities for downtown," he said. He said the Big H project, conceived by the La Grande

Main Street Program's design committee, is only a start. More streetscape work will be done in the future, as funding comes available. "We decided we'd start in the middle of downtown and hopefully build out," Mitchell said. "The end goal is to improve the physical environment, make it more pedestrian friendly so people will want to come and shop."

ODOT: Road repairs may cause traffic delays The Oregon Department of Transportation said traffic delays are expected n ext week as construction crews place the remaining beams at the Indian Creek Bridge on State Highway 82, 2 miles south of Elgin. Tom Strandberg, ODOT's public affairs specialist, said the beam placements will take place June 4-6. Travelers should

plan for delays up to 20 minutes throughout each day as five beams are lifted off a delivery truck and placed on to the new bridge supports. Work is expected to take place around noon and continue to the afternoon ofJune 4. On June 6, work is slated to begin mid-morning and continue to the afternoon.

All work each day is expected to be complete by 4:30p.m. Strandberg said depending on weather and conditions, the times could change. D.L. Edmondson is the contractor for the $4.3 million Oregon Transportation Investment Act project that is replacing the Indian Creek bridge with a structure that will

have two travel lanes, a passing lane and 10-foot shoulders. The project began in 2010 and should be tlnish ed by this fall. Five of 10 bridge beams were placed Wednesday. Assistant Project Manager Mike Remily said the Wednesday work went well, with work starting around 6 a.m. and all five beams placed by

9:15a.m. "ODOT and our contractors greatly appreciate everyone's patience during this construction project," Rcmily said. Elsewhere in Eastern Oregon next week, ODOT is mounting a freight improvement project that will widen a sharp curve on the John DayPendleton highway (Highway

395) near Dale in Grant County. Dice Construction of Bend will begin work on the project Monday. The route is currently restricted for vehicles towing trailers in excess of 48 feet in length between Pilot Rock and Mt. Vernon due to numerous sharp curves and a narrow roadway.

Wyden' s stance on energy may bring benefits The Bulletin (Bend): If Democrats keep control of the U.S. Senate, U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden is in line to chair the Senate's Energy and Natural Resources committee. That could mean good Lhings for Oregon and good Lhings for energy policy. Some other Democrats in Congress don't know how to say no to any energy with a green label. Wyden has been more thoughtful. Consider President Barack Obama's push for a clean-energy standard. His budget proposal for 2013 includes requiring that 80 percent of the country's power come from clean sources by 2035. There might be credit for new nuclear plants and for replacing coal with natural gas. Still, it would be a whopper of a federal mandate. Ther e's no question there would be green benelits, but Lhe counLry needs Lo know Lhe cosls lo consumers, Loo. WYDEN HAS BEEN SUPPORTIVE of the concept of the bill. He also wants to ensure that energy prices are kept low, and he wants to give states flexibility, possibly through a waiver process. Just last week, there was another example ofWyden 's approach . The three '~itncsscs in testimony before the energy committee all h ad variations on the same theme - the federal government should spend m or e on subsidizing energy innovation. Wyden has been more careful than that. He has called, for instance, for more variation in the evaluation process for the federal loan guarantee program that sent money Lo Lhe failed solar company Solyndra. He has also fought to protect biomass from being ruled out as a renewable resource. He pro tested when new rules for boilers might force schools to refit unnecessarily. He has shown a willingness to side with Republicans if he thinks Democrats arc missing important solutions. Remember when he joined with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., on Medicare reform? We haven 't always agreed with Wyden. If he gets the ch airmanship, we 're with him if h e shows h e wants smart energy- n ot just green energy.

Is Romney a unicorn? T

he time has come for Mitt Romney prove it on~e and for all: Is he or 1s he noL a umcorn? Let me stipulate that 1 have no proof that Romney is a unicorn, and indeed I want to believe that he is not. But I have not seen proof of this because he has not released the original copy of his long-form birth certificate. There are many others who feel as I do - 18,000 people to be precise. I first began to consider the possibility that Romney might be a unicorn when Theard that LeftAction, an online petition operation created by Dem ocratic PR guy John Hlinko, was campaigning to get the Arizona secretary of state to certifY that the presumptive Republican nominee is not a mythical beast before allowing his name to be on the presidential ballot. "There has never been a conclusive DNA test proving that Mitt Romney is not a unicorn," the group wrote last week. "And if Mitt Romney is or may be a unicorn, he is not Constitutionally qualified to be president." The campaign came about because Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, citing allegations that the birth certificate President Obama released is a fraud, threatened to take him off the ballot. Obviously, the likelihood that Romney is a fanciful equine is no more plausible than the claim that 0 bama was born in Africa. So why is the unicorn fair game?



Because Romney has made it so. Donald Trump, the nation's most prominent "birther," in interviews, revived his charge that Obarna was born in Kenya. ROMNEY ON MONDAY declined to repudiate Trump. It's not the first tim e Romney, who once distanced himself from the binhers, has failed to stand up to sinister elements on the right. But this is a particularly unsavory crowd. Some members have already turned against Romney. In a lawsuit filed in Mar ch, a group of birthers sued to require California to verifY the eligibility of all presidential candidates. Obama is "arguably ineligible," the plaintiffs wrote, and "a similar si LuaLion may exisL concerning the Republican Party candidacy of Min Romney. " A lawyer for the birthers said the claim is related to George Romney's time in Mexico as a child. Give these birthers some credit: Th ey may be crazy, but they're nonpartisan. There actually is a minor controversy surrounding Romney's birth certificate. Roston Gl obe columnist Joan Vennochi, pursuing a theory that the candidate 's middle name is "Milton" rather than "Mitt," asked Romney's campaign tive years ago for a copy of th e birth

LE,.,.ERS Dams not problem To the Editor: Lately the local newspapers seem to be honoring Judge Redden for his work on endangered salmon rulings. Judge Redden made lots of rulings on biological law based on poor information. He insisted that the government programs had to be rewritten to protect the fish. He and our state governor still believe darns need to be removed. The dams on th e Columbia and Snake rivers were supposedly endangering the runs of fish. During the sarne time, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife planned to close several coa5tal hatcheries because the runs in the Alsea, Siletz and Nehalem were returning at dismal rates. None of these coastal streams had or have a dam. If dams were the main problem, why were the coastal salmon and steelhead runs bad at the same time?

certificate. The campaign declined. I would prefer it if presidential candidaLes didn't need Lo produce vital records to prove eligibility. But if Romney is going to pal around with birthers - especially a newly reborn birther such as Trump- he shouldn't be surprised that people want him to play by the same rules. That was the thinking behind the unicorn campaign. When Arizona's Bennett said he was investigating Obarna's eligibility because he received 1,200 e-mailed requests, Hlinko's group wanted to see what Bennett would do if presented with even more requests to investigate an equally implausible claim against the Republican. LeftAction claims 18,000 have petitioned Bennett so far. TI1e request for a unicorn pro be, Bennett said, is "ridiculous." The "corners," as we unicorn movement followers call ourselves, agree that ours is "a cockamamie conspiracy the ory v\'ith no basis in reality," as Hlinko put it. And yet, he told me, "it's arguably more plausible" than the Obama-Kenya claim, because nobody has seen whether Romney has a unicorn's horn beneath that ample mane. "If he would just shave his head, the whole thing would be disproved," Hlinko otlered. I'd settle for a long-form birth certificate. Contact Dana Milbank at


As I recall. all the rivers in northern Oregon and Washington had the same problem whether there were dams on the rivers or not. Logic clearly shows that the darns did not cause the problem of low salmon adult returns. Yes, they probably were part of the problem on rivers with dams. Yes, overharvest of forests, big city pollution and runoff were all part of the problem. Why are the salm on and steelhead now returning in large numbers if government prognms need Lo be rewrillen? Why are we having spring chinook fishe ries in the Snake and John Day rivers? I would like someone to answer the simple question: if dams were Lhe primary cause of the low adult salmon returns, why were the returns also low on the rivers without dams and also the ones so close to the ocean ? Also, 1 would like to know how these

record returns of fish are still endangered? John Isley Enterprise LETTERS FROM READERS

Trainer pays attention to small details EOLS from 1A On warm days, Leithner will wash her. "And every day she gets skin conditioner," Leithner said, "so she's not all scaly." She requires lots of handling so she'll perform well in the ring on auction day, Leithner said. "Once in the ring, she needs to be right in front of the judges so she's in their line of sight." He even spends time training her to get on the scales. The scales become all important because while the judges are looking the pigs over, so are the buyers who pay by the pound. Lavender should weigh in at jusl over 200 pounds. Leithner is preparing Lavender and "two or three breeding ewes" to market at the EOLS auclion Lhis year~ which will be his fifth year of showing and selling at the livestock show.

Ar; with most participantr; in the auction, Leithner comes from an EOLS family. llis father, John Lei thner, is co-chair of the auction, and Trevor's sister, Brittany, has shown and sold at the auction for several years. Of his sister, Leithner said, "Brittany taught me everything I know. I had to listen to her about a lot of things." Brittany graduated from high school this year. Asked what's the hardest part of raising and selling livestock, Leithn er said, "Letting go of my market animals, that's the saddest part. Especially the lambs." But the money he makes selling at the livestock show and other fairs and shows doesn't gel spenl frivolously. "1 put it in a bank account to pay for other animals and feed," he said.

The Spirit calls all to the love of God


appy Binhday, Church! May 27 was Pentecost Sunday, which has been traditionally held as the inccption of the Christian Church by the giving of the Holy Spirit. Originally Pentecost was an agricultural celebration, being seven weeks after the presentation of the first sheaf of spring barley for the Passover. (Israel is further south than us, spring comes earlier). Later, Pentecost became associated with the giving of the Law to Moses on Mount Sinai, so bestowing the Holy Spirit on this day held great symbolic meaning. In a reversal of tlie Tower of Babel, the Spirit burst forth, driving tlie followers of .Jesus out into the streets to tell the Good News of God through Jesus Christ in all the languages of the world. At least the world



StPvPn A Wolff

as they knew it. The world of the Jews and those who had joined in the Jewish faith, but not the Celts, the Chinese or the Cayuse. Not yet. Later~ while Philip was walking down the road to Gaza, the Holy Spirit directed him toward a man in a chariot reading the scroll of Isaiah. This man in the chariot was a follower of God, coming from Jerusalem, but he would have been barred from temple worship. You see, this man was an Ethiopian and a eunuch, which made him ritually unacceptable. Still the

inspired event, missioners went out to the Mediterranean, Europe, Asia and all the world. This is the birth of the church that includes even me. Happy Birthday, Church! Recently, the General Conference of the United Methodist Church met in Florida. As the only group that can speak for the entirety of United Methodism, they function as the gatekeepers of this branch of God's Church. As WITH ALL denominations, really at all times, one of the issues was who can be included, and who is excluded, from tl1e ministry of tl1e church. I don't think anyone went into this General Conference with high hopes for a sweeping removal of the barriers to participation that have been erect-

Spirit was present, the man was baptized and a new church was born that day, one a little more inclusive. Happy Birthday, Church! Even later, Peter had a vision in which he was told not to call unclean anything· that God had created. Immediately thereaf~ ter, representatives showed up from a God follower named Cornelius. Cornelius was a Roman soldier, an officer, which put him and his people really on the outside of the church at that time. Yet, the Spirit was present, these Roman foreigners were baptized and Peter announced that "I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and docs what is right is acceptable to h'lm." Because of this Spirit-

ed around some groups of peapie. Perhaps the most crushing blow was the refusal to even consider a statement that as a body of Christians, we do not agree on the issues of inclusion and exclusion. People have asked me, in the wake of this, how can we continue to call ourselves the United Methodist Church? How can we keep saying that we have "open doors, open minds, open hearts?" Tongue in cheek I've suggcsted that we change the name to the Untied Methodist Church. Happy birthday church? Looking at our scriptural history, it is clear that the Holy Spirit's work has b een to open the circle of the church to larger and more unexpected groups with each "birthday." This hasn't happened in great

synods or conferences, but in small intimate settings where the people involved were surprised by the outcome. Surprised by the Spirit. What the Cnited Methodist church will do, I don't know. I only know that in this time and this place, the Spirit calls all to the love of God, regardless of race, economics and even sexuality. We are not called to do this through compromise, but with compassion. Happy Rirthday, Church! Steven A. Wolff is lead pastor ot the La Grande United Methodist Church.

The Observer 7 A

Remembering those who serve our country M uch has already been said and written about the Memorial Day services, but I must at least make mention of the 25th annual Avenue of Flags and the gran ted Fly-Over. They came as they promised. They came and they went in a matter of moments as we sat or stood at Grandview Cemetery, having completed the touching program arranged for us by the various veteran organizations and concerned citizens. The aircraft from the 1i3rd Fighter Wing of Oregon Air ~ational Guard base at Klamath Falls responded to the Daughters of the American Revolution Lone Pine Tree Chapter of Baker City/ La Grande and the American Legion Family Post 43 of La Grande, and flew their F-15 Eagle fighter jet over our city at exactly noon on ~1 emorial Day as promised. The outline of the aircraft was silhouetted against the darkening sky that threatened rain but managed only a few drops. We had hoped for sunshine, but how fortunate we were that it faded away or we would have been blinded against the view afforded us. Some say it was hardly worth the effort since the flight lasted such a short time and the aircraft so high in the sky, but they were the ones untouched by the true meaning of the flyover, the protection still granted us in guarding our freedoms and recognition of th e h eroic services of our ve terans. Yes, it was over in a moment of our time but lastin g in our hearts. As a member of the Dl\R requesting the flyove t~ I am deeply grateful for all of those

who made it possible. My husband, for whom one of the fl ags at the cemetery flies each year, representing 224 names, was a navigator in the Air Force dming W\¥II, and I could imagine his plotting the route from Klamath Falls over Union and Baker counties. In my mind, he flew with Monday's crew and I wished them Godspeed. A retired Army stranger from out of state, related to earlier Lyell and Broomfield folk , ifl remember the names correctly, took time to speak to me. I could see in his eyes his pride in having served to protect our country, and still h e took time to compliment Dory's Di ary, reading my column from another state. I felt humbled. Tears tried to surface during Pastor Roger Cochran' s m eaningful talk and to learn that a Knopp son was on an aircraft carrier at the moment his father Lowell spoke to us. H ow could we n ot feel emotion at the first raising of our flag and Josh Jenkins' playing of Taps to bring the remembrance of those who serve in our nation's military program to a close. I was grateful to the Boy Scouts who furnished chairs so that folks such as I could sit. If you missed the event, I'm sorry.


Dear Diary, It has come to my attention that folks have been calling The Observer and asking whether or not my diary is still going to be available to tl1em as the newspaper goes through numerous changes. Because of their interest, I ratl1er believe I should respond in some way even though r Ill not sure myself what I want to do about it. One fact remains that I haven't been invited to stay but neither have I decided that I must again hide my diary in another place where folks can't find it. That part remains for the future. Maybe it should be what the people want. Another fact is that I must have my say in that I am totally set against this three-day-a-week change. T, too, want my newspaper five or even six or seven days a week. I want to pick it up, h old it in my hands and read what it has to say in my own time, but 1 don't want to do it only three days a week. I have n o choice in the changes even as I try to look into the matter to see whether there is necessity or wisdom at work here. The local Observer wa.~ in the black, but it is part of a whole and so, as far as I can tell, the whole eats into our portion and we must share because of it. We can blame it on anything we like - the economy, poor management, the electronic age, or anything else we can think of- but the facts remain the same. Management has m ade its decision and our local paper must follow the directive. Who knows. Maybe you will

really like the new set-up, with or without my column and only the given days of the week. We must wait and see. I wrote a recent column about sometimes less being more as more becomes less. I'm not sure just how we can relate this to a newspaper, but maybe it is tl1ere someplace. While we readers think of the n ewspaper as Our News, Our Crossword Puzzle, our Comics, the sales folks see it as Our Advertisements, Our Sales, Our Income. The n ewspaper itself may think of it as Our Livelihood, Our llome Away From Hom e, Our Social Realm, Our Community Service. Even the Carriers can think of it as their First Income, their First Responsibility, their First Business experience. We are all correct. In the early days, starting out as a carrier and progressing to a writer, my view of the n ewspaper was limited as I drew red outlines around my first stories, espe cially those with my name on them. It was a proud time. The r est of the newspaper existed only to see tln t my articles and pictures were put to print and distributed. Maybe age and experience has something to do with it, but I now see it all as a Community of Sharing. Without one of the elements going into producing the daily paper, the newspaper wouldn't exist at all. We must work and produce together. If the Advertisers de cided not to use th e newspaper to let the folks know what they h ad to sell, the n ewspaper couldn't afford to print the news, for

the subscribers couldn't pay all the bills. Likewise, if the subscribers all quit buying the newspaper, the businesses would have no place to draw in an unlimited number of customers to purchase their wares. They need each other. Take even the folks who put the pieces of the paper together page by page and the persons who run the big press in the back of the building, or the carriers who bring the paper to your door. Without each part of this big business, a newspaper wouldn't be a n ewspaper at all. I'm sure every business and every household, not just the newspaper business, faces the same dilemma of how to make the budget work. \Vhat hurts here is that we had no say in the changes that are being made at The Observer. We didn't have a vote. See what I have meant in other columns about preserving our freedoms. Of course, we aren't a truly local newspaper or a co-op paper, either. We belong to a conglomerate out of town, and we must abide by their decisions and then decide how we individually respond to them. Thank you for asking by phone, email and personal response concerning whether or not Dory's Diary will continue appearing in The Observer on a weekly basis. It remains to be seen where it goes from here.

PORTLAND (AP) -A federal judge has rejected a request to halt the killing of California sea lions that eat protected salmon at Oregon 's Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River. The Humane Society of th e United States wanted to stop the lethal injections while its lawsuit against the practice works its way tl1rough the courts. Judge Michael Simon has said the request faced difficult tests in such legal circumstances. The Oregonian reports he ruled Wednesday it didn't pass the tests. Eleven California sea lions were trapped and killed this spring. Another was sent to an aquarium. The rest have largely returned to th eir oceanic breeding grounds after the spring fish run. Simon has said he wants to rule on the lawsuit itself before the sea lions return next year.

BP's Wash. refinery back to work after Feb. fire BLAINE, Wash. (AP) - A BP refinery in Washington state that shut down after a February fire has resumed normal operations. BP spokesman Scott Dean in Chicago said Thursday that repairs and maintenance were completed in May at the Cherry Point refinery

near Blaine. The three-month outage has been cited as one reason that gasoline prices have been higher on tl1e West Coast than the rest of the nation. But other factors also go into the price of gasoline, including increased demand for summer driving.

BP Cherry Point is the thirdlargest refinery on the West Coast. It produces 20 percent of Washington's gasoline needs and supplies the m~ ority of jet fuel for Sea-Tac, Portland and Vancouver, British Columbia, airports. The refinery was hit by a fire Feb. 17.

N.M. fire spreading in all directions RESERVE, :K.M. (AP) -A massive wildfire in the 'Jew Mexico wilderness tlnt already is tl1e largest in state history spread in all directions Thursday, and experts say it's likely a preview of things to come as states across the West contend with a dangerous recipe of wind, low humidity and tind er-dry fuels. The erratic Gila National Forest blaze grew overnight to more than 190,000 acres, or nearly 300 square miles, as it raced across the area's steep,

ponderosa pine-covered hills and through its rugged canyons. The 2-week-old Gila forest fire is the largest wildfire burning in the country. Gov. Susana Martinez viewed the fire from a ~ew Mexico National Guard helicopter Thursday afternoon and saw the thick smoke amon g some of the steep canyons that are inaccessible to firefighters. Along tl1e fire's nortl1ern edge, Martinez spotted crews doing burnout operations

designed to slow the erratic bl aze, which has surpassed the Los Conchas fire as the state's largest ever. That fire charred 156,593 acres last year and threatened the Los Alamos Nati onal Laboratory, the n ation's premier nuclear facility. From the air, Martinez pointed to the terrain a.s being "impossible" in some areas. "It seems daunting to us because it's now 190,000 acr es," she told reporters. "It's going to keep going up."

Thunder pounds Spurs, snapping 20-game winning streak OKlAHOMA CITY (AP) -The streak is over. The series may only be beginning. Kevin DuranL scored 22 poinLs, Thabo Sefolosha set playoff career-bests with 19 points and six steals, and the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped San Antonio's 20-game winning streak by beating the Spurs 102-82 in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday night. Oklahoma City closed its series deficit to 2-1 and will host Game 4 on Saturday night. "We never thought these guys had an advan-

tagc over us even though we had lost a few," Durant said. "It was just good that we took it to 2-1. We didn'L wanL Logo down 0-3." Sefolosha threw a wrench in the Spurs' welloiled offense at the start, getting four steals in the first 3 minutes. The Spurs ended up committing a postseason-worst 21 turnovers and scoring their least points all season. San Antonio had been averaging 109.4 points during its month-and-a-half winning streak and had been held to double digits only twice.

The Dodgers also played without their No. 3 hitter, Matt Kemp, and will be without the slugger for at least a month. The All-Star center fielder, who was runner-up to Braun in last year's MVP voting, was placed on the 15-day disabled list after re-injuring his left hamstring Wednesday night.

EOU ranks 27th in Learfield standings

A GLANCE Triple Crown hopeful avoids track collision NEW YORK (AP)Trainer Doug O'Neill says a loose horse nearly slammed into Triple Crown hopeful I'll Have Another during training Thursday at Belmont Park. He says his Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner was walking a few feet from the outside rail when another horse threw his rider and came "screaming up the outside rail" the same way I'll Have Another was walking O'Neill says the horse went between the rail and I'll Have Another, and that exercise rider Jonny Garcia told him the horse grazed his boot The trainer feared a collision was imminent. O'Neill says he's seen accidents like that, and "they are ugly." He says his stomach is "still a little twisted" and he doesn't want to think about what nearly happened.

Kings make Devi Is desperate in battle for NHLs Stanley Cup NEWARK, 1\j. (AP) -The New Jersey Devils are in danger of becoming the latest team to be stearnrolled by th e Los Angeles Kings. The Devils played one of their worst games of the postseason in dropping the series opener 2-1 in overtime Wednesday night here, and they can 't alford another sub-par effort. Lose two games at home to a team that has posted a 9-0 re cord on the road this post~ea­ son, and the guys who lug around h ockey's biggest prize might start shining it in earnest after Saturday night's contest at tl1e Prudential Center. Th e situation is desperate for coach Peter DeBoer's team. While they missed chances to win the opener, th ey also mad e

We have to be better. We got over the early-game jitters. We started to play a little bit better. But, you know, as a group, we 've got to bring more to win this time of year." Th e Devils carried the play in the third period and had two great chances to take the lead. Captain Zach Parise failed to put a bouncing puck in the net four minutes into the period and defenseman ~1ark Fayne missed a wide open net with roughly 10 minutes left in regulation. "We didn't play at our best, I think," Devils center Travis Zajac said. "We were a little n ervous in the first period, a little tentative. You could see th at. We weren't making plays. We were throwing Lhe puck away a little too much. We weren' t

We ask that each participant collect as many pledges as possible," she added. Th e event has a goal ofraising $18,000 this year.

from bad dump-ins of pucks, being tentative on the ice, failing to shoot when the shot was there, and leaving the Kings open. The most glaring error came in the overtime when Anze Kopitar scored on a breakaway. The problems can be fixed. Th e bad news is that the Kings wer en 't exactly at their best either ... and still won. And if you're a Devil, here's a scary fact. The Kings have played some of their best hockey in Game 2s of their three previous series, beating Vancouver, St. Louis and Phoenix by a combined 13-4 margin to take commanding 2-0 seri es lead back to Los An geles each time. "The comforting thing for me is when Tlisten to th e comments of our players last night, tl1ey were dead-on," DeBoer said. "We weren 't good enough .

Still having a chance to win, that makes us feel pretty good that we can play better, be a little bit more successful." Kings captain Dustin Brown said that the Darryl Suttercoached team has done a good job of not being satisfied after winning Game 1. "In Game 2. it's been our starts," Brown said. "\Ve've jumped on teams early, most noticeably against St. Louis. we had a 4-0 lead after tl1e first and th at goes a long way. Some teams get a win and they are satisfied. "This group h asn't been and it goes a long way wh en you come out in Game 2 and really put it to them."

Stephens r eached the fourth ro und by beating Mathilde .Johar1sson of France 6-3, 6-2.

Researcher shares his Antarctica experience, where he studied penguins eight hours a day, with Ladd Marsh Birdathon audience DICK MASON The Observer

A striking and uncommon image is painted when Noah Strycker speaks of standing out in a crowd. Strycker traveled to Antarctica four years ago for the ch ance of a lifetime - to be among 250,000 Adelie penguins for four months .--~=---;~~..........., with two other people. Strycker, the keynote speaker for the recent Ladd Marsh Birdathon, compares the experience Lo being aL the largest rock concert of your life. The only difference is Noah Strycker "everyone is two

ADULT ADELlE PENGUIN: Adelie penguins tend to always be good-natured with people and usually get along with each other, Noah Strycker said .

a tuxedo and smells like fish." Strycker found that the flightless birds are not afraid of people. In fact, they are drawn to people and infinitely curious. This was apparent when Strycker discussed his daily routine. "My job was to study penguins eight hours a day, seven days a week. It was endless hours of staring at birds starring back at you," Strycker said. Penguins are so attracted to people that it is hard to take photos of them since they are always almost on top of you. "Tt (taking photos of penguins) is frustrating because they too approachable," Strycker said. "They are chasing you." He found that Adelie penguins tend to always be good-natured with people and usually get along with each other. Occasionally penguins will fight am ong themselves - but this tends to be rare. Strycker worked with two other r esear chers in Southeast Antarctica. They were flown into the site from McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Strycker and his fellow researchers sLayed in Lents and a small building at the site. The world they lived in was one of subzero temperatures and roaring winds. "It is one of the windiest places on earth," Strycker said. Winds often blow continuously at 70 miles per hour and sometimes reach 100 miles per hour, which are

It rarely snows in Antarctica. In fact, the continent receives so little precipitation that it is considered a desert. This means texture of the snow has an almost unnatural feel. "The snow is amazing. It is cold, dry and light weight. It is like Styrofoam," said Strycker, who graduated from Oregon State University in 2008 with a a degree in fishery and wildlife. Antarctica is on e of many places Strycker has studied birds. He has also observed them extensively in Australia, the Falkland Islands, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama, Fiji, New Zealand, Hawaii, Alaska, California and Oregon . Strycker wrote a book about his experience in i\ntarctica, "i\mong Penguins: A Bird Man In A.marclica," which was published by Oregon State University Press in

2011. Strycker noted during his keyn ote address that decomposition is slow in Antarctica's dry, freezing environment. Many penguin carcasses, as a result, have harden ed into a dry, mummified state. "Penguin mummies covered a lot of the ground surface," Strycker wrote in his book. He said in La Grande that research has indicated

that many of the mummies are hundreds and possibly thousands of years old. Despite Antarcti ca's remote location, Adelie penguins are among the most studied birds in the world, Su)'cker said. He attributes tl1is, in his book, to their charisma, fearlessness and abundance. H e describes Adelie penguins as among the few species "witl1 so-called star appeal, which are easy to observe." The Adelie penguins of Antarctica live in a world where there is virtually no plant life. Strycker and his researchers thus had no fresh fruit or vegetables during their stay. Strycker developed a strong craving for fresh produce. So great was this longing that upon returning lo the United SLates tl1e first thing h e ate was a bowl of lettuce. "It was the best meal I ever had." Strycker spoke to an audience at the Blue Mountain Conference Center. At least 250 people participated in the Ladd Marsh Birdathon. Almost all of its events were conducted at Ladd Marsh. The birdathon was organized by the Oregon Department ofFish and Wildlife. The birdatlwn's m~or sponsors in cluded Friends of Ladd Marsh, Union County Tourism, the Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Servi ce .

MARSH DENIZENS: The sora and Virginia ralls are quite common at Ladd Marsh, but seldom seen. The birds are very shy about coming out in the open and prefer to lurk in the dense cattails and sedges. Their calls are quite distinctive. If viewers can be still and pati ent, the birds do sneak out along the edges at times - especially when they are looking to feed their young.


R E P 0 RT Oregon Deparbnent of Fish and Wildlife


Waterfowl congregate at marsh Tule Lake Public Access Area and the Auto Route are open for the season. The Glass Hill Unit is also open to public access. Visitors are advised to carefully read posted signs and consult game bird regulations before entering the wildlife area. There are numerous qualityviewi ng opportunities from county roads that pass through the area. Binoculars or a spotting scope will help as many animals are best viewed from a distance Waterfowl using the area include Canada goose, snow goose. g realer white-fronted goose, north ern pintail, American wigeon, ring-necked duck, mallard, gadwall, cinnamon teal, green-winged teal, northern shoveler and at least a few Eurasian wigeon. Shorebirds have included killdeer, black-

necked stilt, greater yellowlegs and others. Local sandhill cranes are nesting and a few have hatched. Soon the young may be visible as they feed in meadows with th eir parents. A spotting scope or quality binoculars are important as the meadows are closed to entry and viewi ng 1s from the viewpoint or county roads. There are also small groups of non-breeding sandhill cranes using the wildlife area. Cranes ca n be seen from county roads in several locations. Please report any sandhill cranes we aring leg bands to the Ladd Marsh staff (541-9634954). If poss1ble, note the color and order of bands on each of the bird's legs (e.g. , pink above white on left leg; silver above black on right leg). The specific

combination and order can identify individu al birds. Bewick's wren, black-capped chickadee , western meadowlark, savannah sparrow and son g sparrow are singing. Red-winged and ye llow-headed blackbirds are claiming territories and swallows can be seen over nearly every body of water on the marsh. Common yellowthroats have returned and are singing th eir witchy-witchy-witchy song all over the area. Red-tailed hawks are sitting in

their nests in several locations And the Swainson's hawks are claiming nests sites and beg inning to build . Osprey have returned and can be seen hunt1ng over ponds on and near Ladd Marsh Wildlife viewers and anglers nee d a parking permit to park on the wildlife area. The $7 da1ly or $22 annual perm1t can be purchased online or at an ODFW office that sells lice nses or at a lice nse sales agent

High flows hamper fishing GRANDE RONDE RIVER: steelhead , trout, whitefish, bass The Grande Ronde River opened for fishing this past weekend. High flows from spring runoff are currently making fishing difficult, but some trout and whitefish can be caught where flows are slower in

pools and near shore. Cooler weather has been holding spring hatches back, but we expect more hatches to come off with warmer weather. Flows are still too high and cold for bass, but anglers should take advantage of this great bass fishery later this summer.

HOROSCOPES FRIDAY, JUNE I, 2012 by Stella Wilder Born today, you seem able to endure any kind of personal hardship in order lo rl'ach your goals and win the prizes upon wh1ch you have set your sights and hung your hopes. This is not to say that you pre!er to have things the hard way- -quile the contrary -- but it docs suggest that you have a kind of dedication, tenacity and fortitude that others do not necessarily share, that give you a distinct advantage when you arc facing d!fficu]t situations. SATURDAY, JUNE 2 GEM!!\! (May 21-/une 20) -You're likely to come around today and accept what another has been tdlmg you for quite some lime. Don'l consider this a surrender! CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be feeling as powerful as possible today, but ~ou can tome up with one or two important ideas that others can make work ior you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Yourabil-

ity to understand those around you will put you far ahead ofthe competition at this time. One choice you make today really counts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sepl. 22) -You're doing what you feel is necessary to further your own agenda -but today you may want to consider whal another is ddvising you lo Jo. LIBRA (Sept. 23-0ct. 22) -Instmctions you receive today can be misinterpreted -- but once you begin a trial-and-error process you'll see what must be done. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It may be that your closest competitor is ready to suggest another way of proving him or hersel f. Listen to what is otfered. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What lies just beneath the surface today 1s likely to he gwte important to you -- in both the short and the long run. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Things may begm to look rosrer to you and those closest to you -- and

by Stella Wilder

the reasons, if discovered, are likely to surprise and please you. AQUARIUS (/an . 20-Feh. 18) -You may be separated for a time ioJay irom lhose whom you like lo have closest to you. Don't let yourself overreact; this is only temporary. PJSCES (reb. 19-March 20j -- A J iffiwll silualion is likcly lo be resolved today after you step in and do what you ca n to clarify what involved parties are really after. ARIES ('vlarch 21-April 19) More than one key issue is at play here, and you'll certainly want to pay attention to what others need and want. Nothing is out of the question. TACRUS (April 20-May 20) -Principles and practicality will combine loday as you lry lo communicate your values to those around you. Later, it's a matter of strategy. (EDITORS; Fa d l cml

After being the subject of much conversation d uring your " Bachelor" run, were you prepared for that again going into " The Bachelorette" ?


Obviously, that was a huge thing in the back of my head, "Am I going to be able to go through all of this again?" I think that maybe I wasn't in the right place last time to be able to deal with everything. It's like you're put in a whirlwind , and your whole life changes in a second. I wasn't prepared for that, and this time, I am. It didn't c hange me as a person; it actually made me stronger, so I'm not that worried about it.


The percentage of couples who have stayed together over t he history of the " Bachelor" and " Bachelorette" franchises hasn't been huge. What do you think about that?

A: There have been 16 seasons of "The

Bac helor;' and I've been on more than 16 dates in my lifetime, so that doesn't mean I'm going to stop dating. I just have to keep trying. I'm not ever going to give up on love until I find the right guy.
