Union School District budget

Up to three school days to be cut in Union By Dick Mason The Observer

UNION - The Union School District will not be reducing its Spanish teacher position in 2012-13 and will cut at least one less school day than originally anticipated. This was the good budget news annmmced at Wednesday

night's Union School Board meeting, news that brightened an otherwise somber budget picture. The board voted to adopt a 2012-13 budget of$4.513 million, which calls for about $240,000 in cuts. Up to three school days and three teaching and non-teaching positions will be cut to make these reductions.

Timber oavments extended

The cuts are less than what the district budget committee had recommended on June 5 in part because of additional funds that have become available. The budget picture is brighter for the following reasons: • The district's ending fund balance is about $12,000 higher than anticipated because of con-

servative budget estimates. • Afull-time high school teacher recently resigned. The district will hire a half-time teacher to replace the person in this position. The additional funding will allow the district to reduce the number of school days it See Union I Page lOA

• Temporary contract that has deputies providing police coverage to Elgin on interim basis becomes three-year pact

• If president signs bill, Union County will receive about $645,000 from Securing Rural Schools act, $900,000 from Payments-in-Lieu ofTaxes

By Bill Rautenstrauch The Observer

The Union County Board of Commissioners Wednesday approved a law enforcement contract between the county sheriff's department and the City of Elgin, making official an agreement months in the making. After hearing a briefreport from She1i:ff Boyd Rasmussen, the board voted unanimously in favor of the contract. Rasmussen told the commissioners he expects the arrangement to work well. "We had several conversations and I'm satisfied with what we have here," he said. Elgin's police department disintegrated in the wake oflast August's shooting of city resident Richard Shafer by Officer Erik Kilpatrick in a domestic disturbance call. Though a grand jury ruled the shooting justified, public outrage over the incident and a host ofother law enfOrcement-related issues continued. Kilpatrick and Chief Kevin Lynch resigned in October, leaving the city without any officers. The city council and a hiring committee mounted a months-long search for a new chie~ but was unable come up v.ith a suitable candidate. In the interim, Union County sheriff's reserves provided coverage under a temporary contract. See Elgin I Page 9A

Early Thursday morning, Congress announced payments frum the Secure Rural Schools act and Payment-in-Lieu ofTaxes would continue for another year after being added in a conference committee for the Surface Transportation Bill. The payments have "If it hadn't been made since 2000 been extended to counties to make up the loss oftimber we would have for receipts from diminished been making harvests on National cuts. We will be Forest lands. Many rural able to rnaintain Oregon counties, including Union and Wallowa, . " servzces. have been dependent on - Steve McClure, the payments in order to Union County fund roads, schools and comm1ss1oner other projects. The payments have continued to be renewed year after year as counties have been unable to find other revenue sources to make up for the loss of timber payments, and the federal government has been unable to come up v.ith a permanent solution to smaller payments from smaller timber harvests. The bill calls for about $346 million to be paid to rural counties throughout the nation, with about $100 million going to Oregon counties. Union County will receive around $645,000 from the Securing Rural Schools act and $900,000 from Payments-in-Lieu of Taxes. "Ifit hadn't been extended, we would have been making cuts," said Steve McClure, Union County commissioner. "We will be able to maintain services." McClure said that the funds are a very important source offunding for the county; being discretionary they can be spent where the county needs to. Mike Hayward, Wallowa County Board of (';Qmmissioners chairman, said he was told that there would be a slight reduction from 2011 appropriations and at best guess expects between $700,000 and $900,000 if the bill is approved. That roughly estimated sum will go to the county roads department; the school funding portion goes to the state before being distributed, Hayward said. Hayward said the county budgeted $990,851; without the federal money it would have about $65,000 to run its road department. See Payments I Page 2A

The landmark Supreme Court decision on the health care law will allow Oregon to continue pressing forward with reforms. The state has been aggressively implementing many of the provisions in the 2010 federal law, some of which were already written into state law before the passage of President Barack. Obama's signature legislation. With the decision, the court preserved the largest expansion of the nation's social safety net in more than 45 years, including the hotly debated core requirement that nearly everyone have health insurance or pay a penalty. State leaders primarily expressed pleasure at the result Thursday. "This is very good news for Oregon. See Ruling IPage 6A

No semement in Pon of Ponland dispute


PORTLAND (AP) - A federal judge has set a Tuesday deadline for a deal to end a dispute slowing the flow of cargo at the Port of Portland. At a hearing Friday,

TODAY Today is Friday, June 29, the 181 st day of 2012. There are 185 days left in the year. In history: In 1613 the Original Globe Theater in London, burned to the ground after a cannon used for special effects misfired during a performance of Shakespeare's "Henry VIII:' In 1956, the Federal-Aid Highway Act is signed into law, creating the U.S. Interstate Highway system. In 1972, the U.S. Supreme court ruled in Furman v. Georgia that the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment. This resulted in a de facto moratorium on the death penalty unti11976.

fonner Gov. Ted Kulongoski told Judge Michael Simon no agreement has been reached between the unions representing longshoremen and electrical workers. The unions disagree about

which workers should plugin and unplug refrigerated shipping containers. Simon appointed Kulongoski to broker a settlement. Unless there's a deal, the judge says, he may act on a

temporary restraining order requiring the longshoremen to stop the work slowdown that has led ships to bypass Portland. More than 1,000

regional businesses depend on the port to get their goods to or from international markets.

PAYMENTS Continued from Page lA

Oregon senators and representatives lobbied hard to get the money included in the bill. ''This is the fourth time since I ~TOte the original county payments law in 2000 that Congress has come down on the side of schools, roads and law enfurcement in rural, natural resource dependent counties," said Sen. Ron Wyden. "$100 million to help stem the tide oflayoffs, cutbacks and reductions in vital services in hard-hit rural communities could simply not have come at a better time." Counties in Southwest Oregon stand to gain the most from the payments. Cuny County leaders feared the county would go bankrupt without the payments. Josephine and Lane counties had to release prisoners from their jails to make up for the projected shortfall. ''This one year extension gives us the breathing room we need to continue our bipartisan and delegation-wide work toward a long-tenn solution that brings jobs back into the forests to create revenues that keep essential local services like schools and law enforcement afloat," said Rep. Greg Walden, R-O:re. Several solutions to solving the continued problem of making up timber payments to counties have been floated over the last year. One proposal by Rep. Peter Defazio, D-Ore., would have divided timber lands into two trusts, one for conservation and the other open to logging. A proposal by

Washington Rep. Doc Hastings would have required federal lands to generate at least 60 percent of the previous income they once produced. However, neither bill has made it through Congress and a long-teiiD solution to replacing timber payments has not been reached. "We think there needs to be more activity in our National Forest land," McClure said. ''They need to take more logs to the mills. The forests are overstocked and there is the potential for what is happening in Colorado (with the forest fires) to happen here. We need to go back to producing products in our National Forests." Historical1y, counties with National Forest lands received 25 percent of the revenue from timber sales. These payments began in the early 20th century when many counties in the Western United States complained they had smaller amounts of revenue to work with because much of the land was federally owned and therefore unable to be taxed by county govemments. Tlris system worked well until the 1990s when diminished timber sales on federal lands caused these payments to dry up, leaving many Oregon counties in a lurch. The federal govemment owns 53 percent ofland in Oregon, much of that under the Bureau of Land Management or the United State Forest Service. Oregon ranks fourth in the amount of land owned by the federal government. Only Nevada, Alaska and Utah have more of their territory owned by the federal govermnent.

Safe roads imperative onHwy.3 The best people can say about the pending closure of the Oregon Department ofTransportation's highway maintenance site near Flora in Wallowa County is that the two people staffing it get to keep their jobs. The worst is that the snow will fly as it always has, and driving State Highway 3 could get trickier in the winter than ever before. The highway; known informally in Wallowa County as theNorth Highway; isn't a major state route but is in fact a critical link between Enterprise and Clarkston, Wash., Lewiston, Idaho, and points beyond. It's traveled by truckers and tourists alike, and by ambulances and other emergency vehicles. Not only that, fanns and ranches and retirement homes are scattered along the route. The people living "out north" use the highway on a daily basis to get to jobs and school, do their shopping, and otherwise conduct their business. Highway 3 starts in Enterprise and runs through wild mountainous country, and as it nears the Washington State Line it plunges downward via Rattlesnake Grade, that high, lonesome section of road so aptly named for its seemingly eternal series of sharp twists and turns. In sum, the highway isn't easy to drive even in good weather. In winter, it's a real bear. ODOT plans to close the Flora maintenance site some 36 miles out of Enterprise and move the two employees who work there to the district office because of statewide budget cuts amounting to $1.8- $2.5 million. With Enterprisebased crews maintaining theNorth Highway, the department will save the cost of operating the station, especially the cost of fuel to run the generator that powers the station. The department may pick up some additional revenue by selling the 2.5 acre maintenance site.

Keeping the highway safe District Manager Mike Buchanan told a Wallowa County crowd at a recent meeting ODOT 'vvill bring crews on early and keep tl1em out late to clear the highway in \vinter. He also said the department v.rill rely on citizens to report bad conditions, and that there is a "possibility" of installing road weather stations that detect pavement temperatures and visibility. While we have faith in ODOT's commitment to keeping the state's highways open and safe to drive, we don't think a mere "possibility" of installing those stations is enough. Given the highway's local importance - and possible hazards ranging from black ice to rock slides - ODOT should use every technological tool available to give North Highway drivers an edge. ODOT should also clearly pledge the North Highway \vill get at least the same level of maintenance it has in the past, regardless of whether the effort starts at Enterprise or Flora. ODOT bean counters may have determined the highway is a low volmne road with "only'' 320 vehicles traveling on it each day, but that doesn't change the fact that there's a critical need for dependable, year-round access to Wallowa County's north country.

Your views Candy distribution at parades To the Editor: Parade season is on and with it prizes in the fonn of candy and mementos. More than once I have seen associates of entrants marching along the parade route directly distributing candy to spectators. This should always be the rule and never the exception during a parade. Too often I have seen children run into the street and could easily be struck by an oncoming float or frighten horses. My heart leaps into my throat when I see these pint sized pillagers coming borderline, if not entirely, in front of oncoming floats.And they are so small, they may not be seen in time. Our hats go off to the direct distributors of candy, people who are willing to go the distance. Ron Fischer Elgin

Keep Union Spanish teacher To the Editor: I am writing about tl1e budget cuts that the Union School District is facing and I really feel that they need to keep the Spanish class here. Yes, the kids need their sports but I think it benefits to pay a teacher rather than a coach. I'm not saying that coaches don't deserve to be paid, but when push comes to shove, let's keep our teachers. I have a son who was able to speak Spanish and he used to work at the gas station and Wal-Mart while going to college and then became a police officer in Baker City, then later in La Grande and finally in Salem. I don't know how many times he was called in to hospitals, restaurants and other places in order to talk to people or to comfort loved ones. We really need to keep the Spanish teaching position as well as sports. If necessaiJ~ we could use volunteers for at least awhile so that we can keep teaching positions as well as sports. If I was in better health, I sure would be over there to help.

Due to restriction on number of words (letters to the editor are limited to 350 words), some parts of my letter were removed. Using logic indicates that at least one coastal stream in the Pacific Northwest in a \vilderness or park would have had good returns during the time of low coastal returns if the problem was caused by logging, etc. and bad water quality in the streams. Logging around coastal hatcheries before low returns had gone on for decades and had not reduce the programs. Records indicate that the reduction in adult returns came before the reduction in smolt releases. The hatchery smolt release programs nun1bers were not significantly reduced by the mud and slash that is attributed to logging so the adults should have returned to the hatcheries. Also one should recall that one of the first critters to return to Mount Saint Helens was migratory fish. And records indicate that pre-eruption local fish survived the ash, mud flows and hot water of the total devastation of the blast zone. The early years of The Oregon Forest Practices Act of 1971 must have been a failure in the non-logical way of thinking because the regulation of clear cut size, road building requirements, and stream side protection occmred long before the low return era and must have done little to improve the fish returns. Records do support improvements in water quality because of the Act. The spotted owl era also occurred before the poor salmon years and so that reduction in logging also did not help restore the salmon any more than the spotted owls. The commercial salmon farms with direct access to the ocean stopped production because adults did not return to their sites and surplus eggs were no longer available. John Isley Enterpri&

Stole from gravesite


home to La Grande in the summer is a treat. I leave behind crime and a lack of empatlw to find just the opposite in my hometown; something I treasure in La Grande. That thought was broken this last Memorial day. As she does every year, my 90-yearold mother placed a beautiful iron basket of flowers on my father's grave at Grand View Cemetery in La Grande. She has placed this same basket for several years and then returns to pick it up and replant for the next year. This year when she went to pick it up, a large container of petunias and the iron basket was gone. (She returned prior to the cemetery crew's clean up) After tears, she asked the question, 'What kind of person steals from a gravesite?'' Followed b)~ "I did not think tl1at would happen in La Grande." I didn't think that would happen either. To the person who stole the basket from my father's gravesite, I would also ask, 'What kind of person are you? Do you have any sense of decency?" The basket does not belong to you; please return it.

It will allow states that do not wish to expand Medicaid to opt out and not lose all funding for the program, a joint effmt ofeach state and the federal government.

aim to lower costs by focusing

on prevention and keeping people out of costly emergency room situations. "I am pleased that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, which will help all Oregonians, including the 600,000 Oregonians who are uninsured, have better access to health coverage," the governor said in a statement. "It's a vindication of the Obama administration's bold approach. Oregon's health transformation initiative is well under way.We're moving forward with Coordinated Care Organizations that will transforn1 Medicaid for better health and lower cost. And the Oregon Health Insurance Exchange will be a central marketplace where

individuals and small businesses can shop for health plans and receive help paying for coverage:' The state would have confumed with its health care overhaul even if the Supreme Court had struck down the federal law, but Rep. Peter Buckley, D-Ashland, who sits on the budget-writing committee, said this means the state can hope to stretch its dollars by lowering costs using the health insurance exchanges and CCOs. The idea is to deliver more efficient care and as a result have the money to fill the gap between the federal and state payment<;. "If we get better at controlling our costs, our dollars will go a lot longer," Buckley said.

Cunningham taken in first DALLAS (AP) Nowthatthe NBA draft is done, the Dallas Mavericks can concentrate on their expected pursuit of hometown All-Star guard Deron Williams. They certainly hope that free agency turns out as well as their draft did. The Mavericks traded the 17th overall pick, their highest since 2000, and moved down seven spots. They said they still got the player they wanted in the first round, Oregon State guard Jared Cunningham, while adding two early second-round picks also expected to be part oftheir roster next season. Cunningham led the Pac-12 in steals the past two seasons. As a junior for the Beavers last season, he averaged 17.9 points, which was second in the Pac-12. Cunningham also had 91 steals, matching Gary Payton's mark as a junior, and averaged 3.8 rebounds.

Wade will miss Olympics MIAMI(AP)Dwyane Wade needs surgery on his left knee and will miss the London Olympics. The Miami Heat guard called USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski on Thursday and let them know that he is not healthy enough to participate in the Olympics. Wade was playing through pain for much of the postseason, yet still averaged 22.6 points during Miami's five-game win over Oklahoma City in the NBA Finals. Wade tells The Associated Press that the situation is disappointing. Wade and his doctors are in the process of scheduling the surgery.

Balotelli sends Italy to finals WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Mario Balotelli scored twice Thursday to give Italy a 2-1 win over Germany and an unexpected spot in the European Championship final. Extending its winless streak against Italy in major tournaments to eight matches, Germany had no answer for Balotelli nor Antonio Cassano's creativity. In the 20th minute, Balotelli had no trouble getting past Holger Badstuber to head in a pinpoint cross from Cassano. Then in the 36th, the striker blasted a long shot into the top right corner.

Eastern Oregon University graduate assistant C.J. Green talks to players on Tuesday at an eight-man camp put on by the EOU football team in Cove. The camp ran from Saturday through Wednesday and had teams from all over Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

Asummer of camps for EOU's Camp By Casey Kellas The Observer

COVE- Just because it's the off-season, that doesn't mean Tim Camp and the Eastern Oregon University coaching staffis taking any time off. The Mountaineers held their annual eight-man camp in Cove this week, and the turnout was the best it's been in the four seasons since it started. Camp said that more than 100 players from around the region attended the five-day camp. Four years ago that number was less than 40 when it first started. "We're really building this thing," Camp said. "It's a great oppmtunity for the Cove community as well as our coaching staff "I think it can get bigger still." The stop in Cove was just one part of what has been a busy off-season for the EOU football program. The team held its big-man camp back on June 2. That camp also had more than 100 players in attendance, up from the 20 when it started. The coaching staff attended

a one-day camp in Yakima, Wash., earlier this year, then spent a week at a camp in Winnemucca, Nev. And they aren't done for the summer just yet. EOU's annualll-man team camp will run July 1619, and Coach Camp expects to see more than 500 players at that. In late July, Enterprise will have the pleasure ofhosting the coaching staff for a few days. Camp said a clinic in Bend may loom after that, but didn't make any guarantees. Putting on local clinics and traveling around the Northwest to other camps has been a great chance to get Eastern Oregon football's name out there, according to the coach. "It's a great chance to evaluate kids that we may not have the budget to go see. It's one more option that we have. "It's really invaluable in small college football." The Mountaineers kick off their 2012 season Sept. 1 when they travel to play Montana Tech. The home opener is Sept. 8 against Montana State-Northern.

Powder Valley's Colton Eubanks (left) strips the ball from another player during an exercise in Cove Tuesday morning. Eubanks was participating in a five-day high school football camp that drew more than 100 participants from Washington, Idaho and throughout Oregon. EOU head coach Tim Camp (above) has spent the summer promoting Eastern football through a variety of camps and clinics. The next one is July 16-19 on the EOU campus.

Blazers take Lillard, Leonard with first-round picks PORTLAND (AP) - The Portland Trail Blazers didn't pull any early surprises in the NBA draft, filling needs with guard Damian Lillard and center Meyers Leonard. The Blazers took Lillard out ofWeber State with the sixth pick before selecting the 7-foot-1 Leonardoutoflllinois with the 11th on Thursday night. It was the first time that Portland had two lottery picks in the draft. The Blazers got the sixth pick in a trade with the Nets at the March deadline for forward Gerald Wallace. The Blazers, known for draft-night drama in recent years, had earlier targeted a point guard and center at the top of their wish list for the offseason. Lillard, a two-time Big Sky Conference player of the year, averaged 24.5 points, five rebounds and four assists as ajuniorwith the Wildcats before declaring early for the draft. The 6-foot-3 guard had a solo workout with the Blazers earlier this month and reportedly dined with Portland

owner Paul Allen afterward. He was widely considered the top point guard in the draft. "I wanted to see what happened," Lillard said about waiting for his name to come up. "I tried not to have expectations because I didn't want to be disappointed." Lillard is the first player from Weber State to be drafted since Willard Sojourner was taken in the second round - 20th overall - by the Chicago Bulls in 1972. The most recent player from Weber State to play in the NBA was Eddie Gill, who played in six games for the Milwaukee Bucks in 2008-09. In a conference call with reporters, Lillard said he believes his game will complement Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge. New Blazers general manager Neil Olshey did not mince words when it came to Lillard. "Damian Lillard was brought here to be our starting point guard. He might not be that in camp, but we selected him to be the starting point guard," Olshey said. Leonard averaged 13.6

thing special," Olshey said. The Blazers selected guard Will Barton out of Memphis with the 40th overall pick. The Conference USA player of the year last season as a sophomore, the 6-foot-6 Barton averaged 18 points and 6.5 rebounds. Portland also dealt the 41st overall pick, Tyshawn Taylor out of Kansas, to the Nets for cash considerations. Taylor averaged 16.6 points and 4.8 assists per game as a senior last season for the Jayhawks, who went to the NCAA championship game butfell to Kentucky.

Local lighters bring home world titles LAS VEGAS, Nev.- A pair oflocal fighters combined to win four world titles at the International Martial Arts Councils World Championships in Las Vegas last weekend. Sigung Ken Johnson and student Arden Yundt both brought back two world chan1pionship trophies each. Johnson, who is the owner and instructor of Grande Ronde Karate School, was defending three world titles from last year and has now won a world title in six different decades. Yundt, 22, and a La Grande High School graduate, was competing at his first world championships and is the first student to win a world title under Johnson. "It's much more satisfYing than winning one myself;" Johnson said ofYundt. "Arden's great, I couldn't ask for

a better prodigy." "It was awesome, seeing all those fighters from all over the place," Yundt said of the expenence. "It was more than I expected. It blew me away." Johnson's first test was in the men's heavyweight black belt kick boxing division. He went 6-0 with three wins by TKO to retain the title. Next Johnson competed in the men's black belt heavyweight full contact continuous fighting division. There, he went 7-0 with six wins by TKO to defend the title. In the black belt pointfighting division he finished 5-1 to take third place. Yundt went undefeated in the under black belt men's MMA division, with no fight making it to the judges to claim his first world title. "It was insane," Yundt said

of the championship fight. "That was actually a good fight. Back and forth. He was on top for a bit, but I was able to reverse it and take him out \vith strikes from the top." Yundt then went undefeated in the men's under black belt point-fighting division to \vin his second championship of the da)' Yundt finished in second place in the men's under black belt continuous fullcontact division, losing a split decision in the finals. The tournament had more than 8,000 contestants from all over the world. Both Johnson and Ylmdt said that the atmosphere and camaraderie amongst opponents was a friendly one. "It's kind of a brotherhood feeling. I remember standing there in my continuous division waiting to fight, and we're all standing there,

mind set, and they're all good sportsman, so it was fun," Yundt said. Yundt said he plans on retUining next year to defend his titles.

Johnson currently has around 14 students participating at his school. He has nine under the age of 14. They train Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer, with kid's classes going from 5:30p.m. to 6:30p.m. Adults classes go from 6:45-8 p.m. There is also a boxing class available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The cost is $150 for three months, and that includes the Gi. Johnson said he's taken students to two tournaments this year, one in Nyssa and another in Caldwell. 'We're really not trying to teach kids how to fight. They have to learn to defend themselves, that's going to give them a strength in life. "But more importantly we teach tltem how to become leaders," Johnson said.

Jaso' s pinch-hit single lifts Mariners past Boston, 1-0 SEAITLE (AP)- Felix Hernandez walked off the mound in the ninth inning knowing the gem he just tossed was one of the best outings ofhis career. Yet he still stood on the top step of the Seattle Mariners' dugout in the ninth inning begging for a run to make sure this brilliant effort came in a \vin. "Just score one run. One run is all I need," Hmnandez thought as tlte bottom of the ninth started. Thanks to John Jaso and Casper Wells, Hernandez got his deserved victory. Hernandez matched his career

It was the third straight start where Hernandez looked more like the Cy Young winner he was in 2010. It was his 19th career 10-strikeout game and the first time he's ever struck out at least 10 in consecutive starts. The last Mariners pitcher to accomplish that was Freddy Garcia back in 1999. His fastball was moving late and his breaking balls had bite. It was the third time in his career Hemandez struck out 13, the most recent coming on May 22, 2011, at San Diego. "That's the best we've seen. He was unreal. His stuff was moving

high with 13 strikeouts in a brilliant five-hitter and Jaso's pinch-hit single in the bottom of the ninth scored Wells to give the Mariners a 1-0 win over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night. Hernandez (6-5) tossed his fifth career shutout and was one of the first out of the Mariners dugout after Wells belly-flopped onto home plate with the only run. "Tonight is as good as I've ever seen him;' Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. "Against a lot of veteran hitters, a lot ofgood hitters, and a 0-0 ballgame like that, you couldn't ask for anything more."

all over the place," Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. ''He kept the ball out of the middle of the plate. He was pretty special tonight." The only time Hernandez was tested came in the ninth. It was quite the challenge. Hernandez struck out Pedroia on a 3-2 pitch to open the ninth inning. David Ortiz responded with a line drive back up the middle on a hanging curveball that sent Hernandez sprawling to avoid the shot. He got ahead ofSaltalamacchia 1-2, but missed on the edges and walked him on a 3-2 pitch, allowing a run-

ner to second base for just the third time in the game. Newly acquired Brent Lillibridge pinch-ran for Ortiz, with Adrian Gonzalez coming to tl1e plate. Hm~ nandez almost instantly fell behind Gonzalez 3-0, but fought back to 3-2 before GDnzalez fouled off the next four pitches. On the ninth pitch, Gonzalez hit a shot to deep left-center that Michael Saunders chased down just before the wall. Will Middlebrooks then popped out and Hemandez was left waiting to see if the Mariners offense could get him a run.

Charlotte makes Davis No. 1 pick NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Anthony Davis hugged his college tean1mate, hugged his coach, and climbed on stage as the No. 1 pick. Turns out, that was just the start of Kentucky's party at the NBA draft. The Wildcats became the first school to have the top two picks and tied a record with six players taken overall Thursday night. After theNew Orleans Hornets made the longexpected selection of Davis, Charlotte followed by taking fellow freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Saying he was nervous even though his selection was no surprise, Davis shared an embrace vo:ith Kidd-Gilchrist, seated at a nearby table. "My arm was shaking and my hands were sweaty. Got up and hugged Michael, my best friend, wanted to hug him for a minute," Davis said. 'When my name got called, wanted to make sure he stayed close." He did - following Davis as the next player to climb up and shake Commissioner David Stem's hand. "It's crazy," Davis said moments after Kidd-Gilchrist's selection. "Michael is a great player.We have two down and four more to go. Hopefully, all of them will go in the first round." They didn't, the only disappointment for the Wildcats. They settled fur four in the first round and a tie with North Carolina, which won the race to four picks - all in the top 17 selections. Han ison Barnes (No. 7, Golden State), Kendall Marshall (No.13, Phoenix), John Henson (No. 14, Milwaukee) and Tyler Zeller (No. 17, Dallas and later traded to Cleveland) all went between Kidd-

Gilchrist and the next Kentucky playe1; Terrence Jones at No. 18 to Houston. Otherwise, it was the Wildcats' night. Kentucky got its fourth first-round pick at No. 29 with Marquis Teague, another freshman, who is headed to Chicago as a possible replacement for the injured Derrick Rose. Doron Lamb went 42nd to Milwaukee, and Darius Miller was 46th to New Orleans. Only UNLV in 1977 had six players drafted - but none in the first round. The 6-foot-10 Davis averaged 14.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.7 blocks, becoming a dominant defender after growing 7 inches from the start of his junior year of high school. A season after the Hornets traded longtime star Chris Paul, Davis is ready to be tlteir centerpiece, since playing for the Wildcats means he is already accustomed to plenty of attention. "Like I said, at Kentucky we had it all the time, especially the six who played, we had the spotlight all the time," Davis said. "I think it really prepared me." Charlotte, coming off a 7-59 season and the worst winning percentage in NBA history; had been open to moving the No. 2 pick ifit found the right deal. Instead, Michael Jordan's team went with KiddGilchrist, whose selection by the Bobcats was loudly cheered, a sharp contrast from the boos Stem received when he came out to announce the picks. The new Charlotte swingman played in high school at nearby St. Patrick's in Elizabeth, N.J., and fans chanted "MKG! MKG!" as he walked off the stage.

FRIDAY, JUNE 29,2012

ELGIN Continued from Page lA Then in May, the Elgin council voted to enter into a three-year contract with the county department rather than continue the effort to rebuild the local department. The contract worked out in subsequent negotiations takes formal effect in July. Sheriff's Office law enforcement services will cost the city $298,693 in the first year of the contract, $269,023 in the second year, and $290,345 the third year: Rasmussen said the deputies will use the offices formerly occupied by the city police department, and the city's police vehicles will be retrofitted for use by the deputies. He said that two deputies will patrol the city initially, with plans to add a third as funds become available. "The city is paying unemployment costs for the two officers who left, and that's why we're not fielding three deputies in the beginning," Rasmussen said. During a training period from this July to March, 2013, the county will provide 40-60 hours coverage. After training is complete, the minimum number of service hours will rise to 70. When the contract is fully implemented, three deputies 'vvill provide 105 hours of service. "I think with three, you should be able to provide good service out there," County Commissioner Steve McClure said. According to the contract, the Sheriffs Office will send a representative to monthly city council meetings to provide a report oflaw

enforcement law enforcement activities and services. Members of the city's safety committee will receive the report by email at east a day prior to the council meeting. In another item ofbusiness during Wednesday's county board meeting, the board voted some financial support for Northeast Oregon Public Transit summer activities, which include providing free bus transportation for community events. Among the activities is bus service to the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall at the La Grande Gun Club July 19-23. Northeast Oregon Public Transit Manager Frank Thomas said his organization will try and serve as many people as possible who want to see the memorial, which makes an appearance in La Grande tl1anks to the efforts ofHigh Valley VFW Post 4060. Thomas said that vehicle parking will be limited at the gun club. ''We have a park and ride altemative to get people out there 'vvithoutjamming the venue, but we're also offering rides to people who wouldn't othenvise be able to get there," Thomas said. He said the service will be distributing flyers to tl1e Union County Senior Center and local elder living facilities. Thomas said the schedule is still being worked out, but

busses will run to the memorial site several times each day. Busses will likely remain on site for 30 minutes or until a group is ready to return, whichever comes first. "Passengers will be welcome to catch a later bus if they wish to spend more time," Thomas said. Thomas said the service will be staffed with a veteran who recently completed a tour in Iraq. Thomas also filled the board in on the transportation service's plans for bus service during the Union County Fair, Aug. 1-4 He said that during that project, there will be an effort to support merchants who are also vendors at the fair. Measures will include on-board advertising and promotions, outdoor advertising, local and social media promotions, and intentional stops and layovers in the downtown business district. Thomas said busses will run the fair route 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.Aug.1-3, and 12 noon to 10 p.m. Aug. 4. In a third summer activity, Thomas said his agency will again be running busses for players housed in La Grande while practicing for the EastWest Shrine game in Baker CityAug.4. After hearing Thomas' presentation, tl1e boaru approved funding of not more than $4,878 for the transportation projects. Also during Wednesday's meeting, the boar'd formally adopted the county budget and solid waste district budget for 2012-13, and considered and took action on a variety of administrative matters.

Emergency trip has happy outcome


t was Devin and Terrv on this run. It was lunchtime for the emergency medical technicians, but the phone rang anyway. They didn't know what they might find when they arrived downtown other than the 911 call had come in to say a woman had fainted in a local restaurant and needed medical help. Once on the scene, they found the patient groggy but able to respond to the questions. Her blood pressure taken. It was low. Anxious faces hovered over her. Shortly tl1e strong arms of the medics had the patient placed on the stretcher and moved into the ambulance where more medical supplies were at the ready. When all was in readiness, Terry drove the ambulance to the hospital while Devin continued administering to the patient. At the hospital, more gentle hands received the one for car·e. The initials RK




(or was it KR?) appeared on the male nurse's nameplate, a retired military serviceman and now in medical service as was his mother working upstairs at the hospital. In-between the necessary attachments to monitor the patient's recovery; the blood work, x-rays, EKG, oxygen, inquiring interviews and the comings and goings of needed personnel, there was a little more time for the patient to take in her surroundings. Her head cleared more fully, as the dedicated health providers saw to her care. The bed, that could bend in almost any direction, lowered the head and raised tl1e feet, bringing blood to the heart and head. Then it was lie flat, sit up, stand up. The results were good. Around four hours after the call and treatment, emergency room Doctor

brought the results. A newly-tried medication to bring down high blood pressure may have brought it down all right - too far, too fast. Was a hardly-used vial of pills again to be discarded?, the side-effect momentarily being worse than the cure. The patient was released togo home. This emergency trip made by Devin and Terry, EMTs, had a happy outcome. Not knowing whether or not the timing and beginning treatment was crucial, they were there when needed, even during the noon hour. Maybe then they could enjoy their lunch sandwich awaiting them on the front seat of their vehicle. A free fresh one at the Sub-Shop 21 on Fourth Street awaits them, with the recipient's appreciation, if they happen to read this. Veteran newspapeTWoman Dorothy Swart Fleshman is a La Grande native.

By Bill Rautenstrauch The Observer

ELGIN- The Union County Sheriff's Office said it has made arrests in connection with three recent burglaries in Elgin.

Charter Communications customers should be aware of scam Charter Communications customers, beware. Scammers are out and looking to cheat you. According to a report received this week, at least two

La Grande residents received calls recently from someone claiming to represent a company that bought Charter. In both cases, the caller said he needed infonnation in order

to facilitate the changeover. Infonnation requested included debit card account numbers. One person receiving a call did provide that information,


services despite this cut. • A special education aide position. Savings: $34,783 in salary and benefits. • The district's band coach position. Savings: $2,500, which had been paid as a stipend. The budget also calls for the high school wrestling program to be club status. This

will save the district $8,000. The wrestling program will have a volunteer head coach. The budget also calls for reductions in expenditmes for textbooks, computer leases, utilities, science comput" ers, maintenance equipment and computer software. This will save the district about $52,000.

Continued from Page lA

will cut in 2012-13 by at least one day to three. Union School District Superintendent Jon St. Germaine mged the board to do this because the district had promised its teachers that the number of school days cut would be reduced if the district's financial situation improved. Each school day cut costs teachers an average of$300 a year. The district will save about $10,000 for each school day cut. St. Germaine said there is a real chance that more than one day Vlrill be added back because of the district's improved financial situation. The budget committee had recommend that the district cut its part-time Spanish teacher position by one third but asked the board to look for ways to avoid doing this if possible. The board was able to restore the position by cutting the travel budgets for athletics and activities by $9,000. The savings Vlrill be used to maintain the pmi-time Spanish teaching position at its present status.

The teacher also instructs tln·ee Spanish classes in the Cove School District during the school year. Following are the personnel reductions that will be made as part of the budget adopted: • One half of a kindergarten teaching position. Savings: $24,418 in salary and benefits. The position was originally cut a year ago but was added back late because Union's kindergarten enrollment was higher than expected. • The district's media center-librarian position.

By Jane Glenn Haas The Orange County Register

By Meredith Cohn The Baltimore Sun

BALTIMORE - The many people who suffer from migraine headaches often seek quiet, dark places to 1ide them out. But there are effective means of preventing them, shortening their duration and even stopping them. There are established medications and lifestyle changes sufferers can employ, and even some new ones to try, says Dr. Michael Sellman, chiefof neurology at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. Q: How comnwn are migraines, and who usual~y suffers from them? A: Migraine headaches are the most frequent neurology problem that I see in my office. Migraine headaches typically begin in adolescence or young adult life. They can be genetic in nature and inherited from the mother or father. Women get migraine headaches three times more often than men. It is estimated that 15 percent of all women get migraine headaches and 5 percent of all men as well. Q: Do you need to see a doctor to diagnose them? A: You do not necessruily need to see a doctor to diagnose migraine headaches. It is reasonable to see a doctor to con:finn this diagnosis and make sure the headache disorder is not due to some other cause. I would, however, suggest someone see a doctor if the headaches do not respond to treatment or have any unusual features. Q: What causes them and can they beprevented? A: There are multiple causes of migraine headache. About 15 percent of migraines occur shortly before a woman's menstrual cycle. Certain foods have been implicated to trigger a migraine. These include chocolate, strong cheese, onions, oranges and tomatoes. Red wine and sometimes beer frequently precipitate a migraine attack. Rapid changes in barometric pressure (impending rainstonn) can trigger a migraine headache. Migraine headaches can be prevented in part by a healthy lifestyle. Patients should be encouraged to eat small, frequent meals to avoid hunger. Personal stress should be reduced as much as possible. Lack of sleep can cause a headache disorder to worsen.

It's time you got serious about screening.


Age 50 or older? Poor eating habits? Sedentary lifestyle? Do you smoke? Family history of colorectal cancer?

When was the last time you looked at that extra label pasted on your prescription bottles? You know the one I mean. Sometimes its vertical and sometimes its horizontal. It often says something like "May cause drowsiness. Alcohol may intensify the effects. Use care when operating a car or dangerous machinery." That's pretty routine, actually, but each yeru· at least 4 million Americans experience some sort of adverse reaction to prescription medications, some because they didn't read the label. The reactions - ranging from mild rashes to hospitalization to death- could be avoided if warning labels were more effective, according to a Michigan State University study. The study revealed only half the participants surveyed looked at the warning label and 22 percent didn't look at any labels, says Laura Bix, associate professor in :Michigan State's School of Packaging. She concludes some relatively simple changes could improve the labels' effectiveness. "Given our results, we are recommending a complete overhaul of the design and labeling of the ubiquitous amber bottles, which have seen little change since their introduction 50 years ago," she writes in her report. "Our initial recommendations would be to move all of the warnings from the colored stickers to the main white label." The change is especially important on prescriptions used by patients 50-plus, Bix said in an interview. "Students in our study tend to rotate the vial and actively search for infonnation. Older folks assume they are going to know what's on

Tally me banana: Fruit found to boost workouts • Study fmds popular fruit good source of carbohydrates By Anne Aurand WesCom Nevvs Service

Abanana could serve as an all-natural alternative to sugary sports drinks fur an athlete -especially a cyclist -who needs a workout boost. A small randomized, crossover study of 14 competitive male cyclists compared the effects of eating bananas and drinking water to drinking standard 6 percent carbohydrate sports drinks on cycling performance, post-workout inflammation, oxidative stress and immune functions. Researchers at the Appalachian State University Human Perfom1ance Laboratory found that the bananawater combo had similar results to the 6 percent carbohydrate sports drinks. This study, published in PLoS ONE, a peer-reviewed online joUinal, was funded by Dole Food Co., a banana producer. A medium banana has

Afrequently underappreciated cause can be too much sleep. Therefore, do not sleep 10 hours on a weekend if headaches are a problem. Medication to prevent migraines works very well for the majority of patients. These medications need to be prescribed by a physician. A physical examination is necessary before a prescription could be given and follow-up monitoring for complications is necessary. A newer treatment that is having some success in preventing migraine is botox injections. Q: Ifone begins, is there a

A: The key to abortive treatment is to fight the headache immediately in the ear·ly stages. By the time the headache becomes fullblmvn, it is too late. Practical ovm~the-counter treatments that work in some patients is to drink a strong cup of coffee and take a tablet or two of aspirin. There are numerous prescription medications that can effectively reduce a migraine headache as well. Q: Are there complications from the migraines or medications to look out for? The complications of migraines are infrequent but do happen. The most devastating is that of stroke. Young women with frequent

"It could be difficulties in vision or perception or it could just be lack of awareness," she says. She said we have to find a way to make sure these patients notice the warning labels and heed them. "I believe too many ofthese warnings ar·e pasted on the bottle vertically. I recommend a horizontal application at the bottom of the regular prescription information." Her students found that, on average, more than 30 percent of those 65 and older take 10

Fiber is undesirable to some athletes during exercise, since the body is more focused on fueling its muscles than its digestion. migraines ar·e sometimes advised not to take birth control pills because they are at increased risk for stroke. The side effects of medications to look out for should be discussed by the prescribing physician. I think it is a good idea for patients to ask this important question to their doctor when receiving a prescription. The most common side effect of over-the-counter medication comes from taking too much aspirin. Patients can bleed or get an ulcer. They also can get "rebound" headaches because the aspirin loses its effectiveness. The patient then gets a bad headache because he did not take an aspirin.

risk, indicated by circulating antibodies

Soap, toothpaste and mouthwash may fight germs, but it also could make your child prone to allergies, new research has found. Common antibacterial chemicals in these products may affect development of the immune system, making children more likely to develop food and environmental allergies, the research from Johns Hopkins Children's Center found. Researchers analyzed data from a national health survey of 860 children ages 6 to 18. They compared urinary levels of antibacterials in each child to preservatives found in personal hygiene products. Levels of lgE antibodies - immune chemicals high in people with allergies - were also examined in the blood of each child.

different medications daily. Taking multiple medications increases the odds of adverse reactions, she says. Also, this complication is "complicated further" since older participants were less likely to notice or remember the warnings. Not surprisingly, more people who saw the stickers could recall them better, she says, suggesting that enhancing the labels' noticeability is key. The study results highlight the importance of studying how people notice and pay attention to the labels, says Mark Beckel~ assistant lVIiclrigan State University professor of cognition and cognitive neuroscience. "By applying basic research on the control of attention to the design oflabels, we may greatly improve their effectiveness," he says in the report.

But he also kept his family's spirits up during the difficult time. Slendebroek said her husband made the family stronger. "The motivation to do this run is bigger than yourself," Slendebroek said. "I just had to do it. It's something way, way, way above us."

Jessica Savage said in a statement. The findings more than likely show that antibacterials and preservatives don't cause allergies, but may influence immune system development. The research may back up the belief that more kids have food and environmental allergies because they are not getting early childhood exposure to common pathogens, which help build healthy immune responses. Missing out on that exposure can lead to an overactive immune system that misfires against harmless substances such as food proteins, pollen or pet dande1; the researchers said. The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health published online and in the print version of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

You will voice your opinions and telegraph your feelings at every turn, whether or not it is actually appropriate in a given situation -· but you are conf1dent that this kind of honest behavior will be rewarded in some way, and indeed it is. You are sure to win the respect of many simply because you are true to yourself at all times. SATURDAY, JUNE 30 CANCER (June 21-)uly 22) -· You may have to make a small change in your plans that affects the outcome significantly. V.'hat you lose can be regained.

SATURDAY, RJNE 30, 20 l2 YOUR BIRTHDAY by Stella Wilder Born today, you are a proud and able individual, willing at aU times to put yourself on the line for something higger tha11 yourself -and as a result, you're likely to be known for backing some of the most important issues and causes raised in your lifetime. You arc destined to play a role in at least one, and perhaps lwo or more endeavors that will be long remembered, and you may even win a kind oflasting fame that has you talked about for generations. What you have goingfor you, of comse, is your strong convictions, your willingness to work long and hard to achieve your goals and your ability to separate fact from fiction. SUNDAY, JULY I CANCER (June 21-July 22) ·- Te.amwork is the key today -· but not in any ordinary sense. You and a partner must go to unusual lengths to achieve something extraordinary. I.EO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are waiting

for someone dse to make the key decisions today -- but he or she is waiting on you. Clearly, communication is an issue. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may haveheen unclear when givinginstructions to others recently -· but now you have something of a mess to clean up. LIBRA (Sept 23-0ct22) --You have been trying too hard to make things tum out the way you v.anl them; perhaps it is lime to adjust yom own set of expectations. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to work much later than usual today in order to seal a deal that promises to reward you in a very special way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) --You must be 11illing to step aside and let another forge ahead undeterred. You are not yet ready to charge iorward in a similar way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -· You should be able to silence your critics, but one in particular is saying things that somehow affect you more than others.

by Stella Wilder AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ·- You'll want to pace yourself, as you won't be calling it quits until someone else has given vou the word very late in the day. PISCES (Feh. 19-March 20) ·- Are you 1\illing to put yourself in harm's way for another? You may be faced with just such a situation before nightfall. ARIES (March 21-April 19) ·- Personal business will have to take second place to those professional issues that demand attention at home and at the workplace. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -· The image you are projecting at this time may not be 11hal you lhink it is -- and others are surprised by what you seem to be. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone is eager to have your support, and today you may give it -- provided, of course, you receive a few guarantees in return.

best intentions may not be able to save you from doing something ill advised. You're not consideringall possibilities. LIBRA (Sept 23-0ct. 22) -- You're likely to cross paths with someone who raises your blood pressure significantly ·- but not for the right reasons! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nuv. 21) ·- Someone may accuse you of wasting his or her time, but you must do what you are doing so as to influence his or her perspective. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) --You may find yourself with some extra time on your hands, but take care that you don't merely fill it with attempts to keep busy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-)an. I9) -- You can be quite persuasive today, md many are likely to jump on the bandwagon. One straggler may get you thinking. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It won't take you long to wrap up a project that has been ready for completion for quite some time. Today is the day to t1e up loose ends.

Parents orchestrating son's love life win scant praise DEAR ABBY: My sister has decided to let her 14-ycar-old son have a girlfriend. This is contrary to every value we grew up with as kids into adulthood. She has met the girl's parents ami says they "immediate!y clicked" and she knew right away that they share the same morals. '1he parents now set up situations where the two kids can get together. Not only have my nephew and the girl bonded, but the parents have become fast friends. 1see no problem with a little puppy love that happens in school, hut is it asking for trouble when parent~ start to create dating situations when kids are so young? What happens if they are eventually allowed to be alone? Or one of them wants to break up but is afraid to hurt not only the other, but also the parents? My sister says she's "guiding her son through his first romance." I say an eighthgrader is too young and she's inviting a myriad of problems. We have fought over this because she says I'm not being "flexible" and because this hasn't happened to my child yet. Toffered my opinion only after I was asked what I thought of my nephew's girlfriend after she posted pictures on the Internet. Am I right to think this is cTazy, Abby? - SANE AUNT 1N GEORGIA DEAR SANE AUNT: Let's just say it is illadvised rather than crazy. But I agree that your sister is headed for trouble because she isn't allowing her son's "first romance'' to develop naturally. First love often peaks and bums out quickly. When there are two sets of intermeshed parents involved, it can lead to lasting hurt feelings and sometimes enmity. However, if you think your sister is going to listen to either of us, you're dreaming. So quit offering unsolicited advice and stay tuned for what's coming because there are lessons to be learned for everyone involved. DEAR ABBY: I am getting married this year and I'd like to challenge the notion that it's rude to ask for gifts toward a honeymoon or other big-ticket items such as home improvements or a car. My fiance and I mvn our home and we

don't need a lot of the traditional items couples receive at their wedding. Our families have been very understanding, but I'm sick to death of hearing or reading that it's rude to ask for money. Shouldn't wedding guests be happy to celebrate the couple in a way that they need and not force them to register for a bunch of material things they won't use? -ALREADY HAS A DEAR BLENDER DEAR ALREADY HAS A ...: Your question is very common. I receive variations on this theme in every hatch of mail that arrives. It is considered rude to ask for money on a wedding INVITATION, just as it is considered rude for brides and grooms to raise the subject themselves. When a wedding invitation is accepted, the guests usually contact whoever issued the invitation to inquire where the couple is registered. Once asked, it is then appropriate to reply, "TI1ey're not registered for gifts because they already have everything they need, but monetary gifts would be appreciated:' Some couples set up financial registries for this purpose with their bank or other financial institution, and there are also honeymoon registries and charitable gift registries if guests would prefer to donate to a worthy cause chosen by the happy couple.

COOKEVILLE, Tellil. (AP) - Police in Cookeville, Tellil., say a driver tipped his hat to authorities at an intersection and then ran a stop sign. According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, 32-year-old Peny Bridges Haile of Cookeville was charged with drunken driving and evading arrest. Officers said they pursued his Lexus after the encounter at the intersection and found Haile out of his car and next to a briar bush, where he laughed at police trying to apprehend him.

NM mom jailed for overdue book, DVDs ALBUQUERQUE, N..M. (AP) -A New Mexico woman was arrested and spent a night in jail for not returning the book ''Twilight'' and two-DVD set "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" back to the library on time. The Albuquerque Journal reports Lori Teel was arrested and handcuffed at her Portales home in front of her five small children earlier this month for the $36 worth of library materials not returned since 2010. Her attorney says arrest warrants were mailed last year to an address at which Teel hadn't lived since childhood, but Teal was arrested by officers investigating a disturbance. Her charges were dismissed.

Game on communist hardships goes global WARSAW, Poland (AP) - A popular Polish board game based on the hardships ofcommunism is now available in international editions. Poland's National Remembrance Institute released the Polish version of the game called "Kolejka"-last year. The goal was to teach youth about

frustrations and shortages during the decades of communism, which Poland shed in 1989. Although referred to as "Communist Monopoly" the game doesn't let players collect rent or buy land. Instead, they often get frustrated because they can't buy anything even after waiting in long lines. "Kolejka" means line, or queue. Game developer Karol Madaj said Thursday that he chose that theme because standing in lines was a common experience under communism. He also knew he could "transfonn a queue into a board game, arrange the pawns in lines and make players elbow their way to the shop door." The game has been a hit. "I love it. I know it's in memory of sad times but it's wonderful that we can look back on these times with a certain amount of humor," said Barbara Stachowiak-Kowalski, a British-born Warsaw resident whose mother is hish and father is Polish. Madaj said word of the game quickly spread abroad, so the institute is launching versions in English, Gennan, Spanish, Japanese and Russian. The international editions will be sold via various websites for 30 zlotys ($10).

The operator saw a minivan pass and saw the driver with a slingshot fire another projectile at the speed camera van. Police say that May had received two speed camera violations recently.

Talking urinal cakes assist in DUI fight DETROIT (AP) -Michigan is hoping to keep drunks off the road with the help from a special bathroom message. The state says talking urinaldeodorizer cakes have been distributed to Michigan Licensed Beverage Association members in Wayne, Bay; Ottawa and Delta counties. A recorded message will play reminding men who step up to the urinals to call a cab or a friend, if needed, to get home safely. The messages are part of a statewide Fourth of July education and enforcement effort. A kickoff is planned Monday at Detruit pub The Old Shillelagh. The federally funded dnmken driving crackdown runs through July 8. It also includes stepped up patrols in 26 counties involving local police, county deputies and state troopers. Talking minal cakes have been used in other states for similar efforts.

Stocks rally as Europe unveils crisis plans (AP) U.S. markets on Friday cut loose from the anchor of European debt that has weighed them down for months. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped more than 200 points in early trading after European leaders agreed to easier

bank bailouts and regional oversight for their troubled financial sector. Leaders in Brussels unveiled a plan to funnel money to banks directly from a regional bailout fund. They also agreed to ease austerity measures that have


been causing political unrest and agonizing recessions in Greece and other nations that have received bailouts. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 210 points to 12,812 as of 10:15 a.m. EDT. Its biggest gainer was industrial and aerospace giant

United Technologies, which rose $2.12, or 3 percent, to $74.72. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 25 points to 1,353. Only 10 of the 500 companies in the S&P 500 were lower. The Nasdaq composite average gained 60 points to






2,909. The news out of Brussels also lifted energy prices, on the theory that a cure to Europe's debt woes will remove one of the major drags on global growth. Benchmark oil jumped 5.5 percent, or $4.30, to $81.98 a barrel on the New

York Mercantile Exchange, a day after hitting an eightmonth low. Industrial and energy stocks rose the most of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500. Those companies would benefit from higher oil prices and faster global growth.

COUGAR: Cougars can be found throughout Baker County, but hunters should target areas with high concentrations of deer and elk. Setting up on a fresh kill or using distress calls can all be productive techniques. Hunters are required to check in the hide of any cougar taken, with skull and proof of sex attached. COYOTE: Coyote numbers are good throughout the district. Try calling in early morning and late afternoon. Remember to ask for permission before hunting on private properties. SQUIRRELS: Ground squirrels are out and active throughout the valley. Hunters should find good numbers of squirrels when the weather cooperates; remember to ask permission before hunting on private property. UNION COUNTY EVENT

July 8: Hunter education field day, La Grande Trap Club, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. GROUND SQUIRRELS: Squirrels are up and active. Remember, always ask first to hunt on private land.

VIEWING Report BAKER COUNTY Bald and golden eagles can be seen along open water areas of the Snake River and Brownlee Reservoir. For best viewing, drive the Snake River Road between Richland and Huntington. Turkeys can be seen and heard throughout the county in the transitional zone between the forest and the valley. A good area to look is on the Elkhorn Wildlife Area. Bighorn sheep can be seen in the Burnt River Canyon west of Durkee or along the Snake River Road south of Richland.

cracker to Crest Old mining road up Little Cracker Creek provides access to southern portion of Elkhorn Crest Trail By Jayson Jacoby Baker City Herald

There's only one easy way to get to the Elkhorn Crest National Recreation Trail. As for all the other ways, plotting those on a scale of difficulty is a ticklish task. It's a subjective question, is the thing. Your answer will depend on such personal matters as your tolerance for scaling hills nearly as steep as a church steeple. Your ground clearance is relevan~ too. (Well, not exactly your ground clearance - r ather the distance between your rig's oil pan and whatever it passes over.) The easy way is the trail's northern terminus near Anthony Lake. It's easy because the access road is the Anthony Lakes Highway- a two-lane thoroughfare that's paved clear to the parking lot. Pull in, lock up, and your boots are on the path 30 seconds later. (Or two minutes i£ like me, you're prone to forgetting vital stuffin the car. Water, for instance.) At the Crest Trail's opposite end, 24 miles to the south, the situation is as different as a Hummer is from a Nissan Leaf To belabor the analogy, the only way a Leafis getting to the southern trailhead at Marble Creek Pass is if you hire a helicopter to haul it there. (Which, given the amount of fuel a helicopter goes tln'Ough, sort of betrays the purpose of buying the Leaf)

A Hummer could make it under its own power, but its shock absorbers would know they've been in a battle. No other actual road touches the Crest Trail. But of the routes that get to within a reasonable distance of the trail, one of the least arduous routes is, curiously, not listed as a trailhead on the official recreation map for the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. This is the old mining road that switchbacks up the canyon of Little Cracker Creek, near Bourne on the west side of the Elkhoms about 35 miles from Baker City. This is no Anthony Lakes Highway, to be sure. But unless you're working an insurance scam, you don't want to try it in a low-slung family sedan. The road poses no great challenge for a fourwheel drive pickup truck or SUV equipped with lowrange transfer case. And compared with either of the roads to Marble Creek Pass, Little Cracker Creek is actually sort of smooth. To get there from Baker City drive 28 miles, via Highway 7, to Sumpter.

Fishing for small mouth bass and channel catfish is good right now on the John Day River. The water is clearing and the stoneflies are hatching on the Grande Ronde River. Water levels are still high, but look for trout along the bank or in slower pockets. Kokanee fishing on Wallowa Lake has been fair to good and is improving. CATHERINE CREEK: chinook salmon, trout Catherine Creek is open to angling for spring chinook salmon until further notice.The open area is from the Miller Lane Bridge to the Hwy 203 Bridge upstream of Catherine Creek State Park. The bag limit is two (2) adipose fin-clipped adult chinook and five (5) adipose fin-clipped jacks per day; two daily limits in possession. It is illegal to continue fishing for jack chinook once the adult bag limit is met. All other general, statewide and Northeast zone regulations remain in effect. There are plenty of salmon now in the creek, but fishing pressure has been light and the catch has been relatinvely small. Water conditions are good. MORGAN LAKE: trout, bullheads, bass Fishing for trout is fair to good. See Fishing I Page C6

The bleached white skeleton of an ancient white bark pine tree leans across the Elkhorn Crest National Recreation Trail. Whiteba rks are the predominant species in this alpine setting at an elevation of 8,000 feet. Mountain pine beetles have killed or weakened many of the white barks in the Elkhorns over the past quarter century. Spared from insects, disease and fire, whitebarks can live for many centuries. Continue through the town and, just after crossing Cracker Creek, tum right onto Cracker Creek Road at a sign for Bourne. Follow this well-graded gravel road, which is suitable for regular cars, six miles north to Bourne. After passing the last of this ghost town's summer cabins, you'll come to a Y-shaped intersection. Take the right, uphill, fork. After about 100 yards there's another intersection. Continue straight (east); the other road bends sharply to the left. Your road follows Little Cracker Creek, which, despite its diminutive name, is pretty much the measure, volume-wise, of''big'' Cracker Creek. The road climbs consistently for a little over a mile before dipping briefly and then crossing Little Cracker Creek. There's a nice big culvert, so you needn't wony about testing your vehicle's fording capabilities (or soaking your socks, should you choose to hike.) Beyond the creek the grade steepens considerably, though it's mitigated by the

occasional switchback. The biggest drawback with this route to the Crest Trail is that the road lacks places to park. (Although it's a county road, and tlms open the public, the route crosses several parcels of private land, so make sure you know where the boundaries are if you intend to deviate from l'Oad.) The path to the trail itsel( marked by a brown sign as Forest Road 030, branches off the main road about 2.3 miles from Bourne. To avoid blocking the main road, which continues uphill to the privately owned Buckeye Mine, you'd do well to start looking for a wide spot - possibly at one of the switchbacks - at about the 2-mile mark. That also eliminates the need for backing up - a generally unnerving experience on narrow mountain roads. The Road 030 junction is at an elevation of about 7,100 fuet. From here the Crest Trail is only about half a mile away. Which sounds like something you could handle in flip-flops. TI'Ouble is, tl1e route climbs about 900 feet in that

half-mile - a grade more akin to clan1bering up the side of the Empire State Building than to walking up a staircase. The exertion is wellrewarded, though. This path meets the Crest TI·ail at one of the more scenic of the dozen or so saddles along the 24-mile route. To the east is the Rock Creek drainage. The roundtopped peak to the southeast is Rock Creek Butte, at 9,106 feet the highest point in the Elkhorns. The view to the west extends all the way to the Strawbeny Mountains south of Prairie City, more than 50 miles distant. Much nearer to the northwest is Mount Ireland - bring binoculars and you can pick out the fire lookout tower on its narrow summit. The saddle is rich in history as well as in vistas.

BEND (AP)- A Deschutes County sheriff's officer says a Portland man who became separated from his hiking companions in the mountains west of Bend made a cell phone call that led to his rescue. Sheriff's Deputy Jim Whitcomb says 57-year-old William Richard Aue called 911 Wednesday afternoon to say he thought he was two to three miles north of Mount Bachelor and needed help finding his way down. He had ended up in an area west of Broken Top Mountain. Search and rescue personnel were able to get enough details from phone calls to determine the man's approximate location, and guide him by phone to the Moraine Lake area. A search and rescue team met him south of Moraine Lake and escorted him back to his hiking companions.

Chilly sea turtle found on beach NEWPORT (AP) - A hypothermic green sea turtle found last week in the surf at an Oregon beach is improving at the Oregon Coast Aquarium at Newport. KVAI:TV reports that the aquarium's Stuart Clausen says it's too soon to tell whether the turtle will soon be ready to return to his native habitat or will need a longer rehabilitation at a warm-water facility. The turtle had an internal body temperature of 58 when he arrived at the aquarium. Clausen says the natural body temperature in warmer waters is in the mid 70s.

Rules to follow in the hunting game By Mike North McClatchy Newspapers

In the world of hunting, there are a lot of written rules that have much to say about what you can't do out in the field. There are also a lot of unwritten rules tlmt dictate what you shouldn't do. Though you might not find them in any hunting handbooks, experienced hunters can pass along a lot of suggestions that'll keep you safe and ethical on your excmsions. Here's a list of 10 "don'ts" outdoorsmen should keep in mind. 10.) Don't always take the first shot Whether you're hunting waterfowl or upland birds, it's common courtesy to set up a shooting system when hunting with buddies. Hunters can rotate or pick a region to shoot Geft, right, middle). Just don't let your trigger finger get too itchy. 9.) Don't let someone else do all the dirty work

This goes for gutting and cleaning fish, birds and big game. But it also applies to other duties, such as cooking, cleaning and packing. Everyone doing their share makes those chores a whole lot easier. 8.) Don't cross across another hunters patlt when pheasant hunting When you're on a hunt, it's inevitable that you're going to encounter others. It's important to know how to handle yourself when that happens. Not only is it rude to interfere with someone's hunt by doing that, it can also be dangerous to get in someone's shooting lane. 7.) Don't intrude on another hunter's spot Cozying up next to another hunter while duck or goose hunting won't win you many friends, and neither will encroaching on a big-game hunter who's found a spot to sit and watch. It's a big countryside - make sme you leave some elbowroom. 6.) Don't wear red while tmkey hunting

The red resembles the wattle of a tom trn·key, and unknowing hunters take shots ·without thoroughly realizing what they're pulling down on.Wearing bright colors usually seems like a safe idea when hunting, but only camouflage should be wom when turkey hunting. 5.) Don't oversleep After weeks of planning and preparation, don't disappoint yam hunting partner by oversleeping. Set as many alarms as you need to wake up. (I have three alarms on my cell phone, two alann clocks and a wristwatch alarm to get me up on those early mornings seems to get the job done.) 4.) Don't trespass on other's property Most hunters know not to venture onto other's property, but it can happen by accident sometimes. The point is, if you don't fully understand the lay of the land where you're hunting, hunt somewhere else. It's not worth getting a ticket or getting into trouble with a disgruntled landowner.

The same applies for hikers and sightseers, who, from my experiences, are more often guilty of trespassing onto private property. 3.) Don't text while hunting This one may surprise a lot of people. It's definitely a new-age issue, but one that's becoming more prevalent among younger hunters who get cell phone reception out in the field. I've seen people do it (they know who they are), and I can say \vith confidence that it's my biggest pet-peeve. 2.) Don't shoot at sounds This is the other side of the "don't wear red while turkey hunting" bit. It's one of the basics of hunting- don't take a shot unless you know what you're shooting at, but people still get overzealous and accidents ensue. 1.) Don't leave a wounded animal If you have enough tin1e to go on a hunt, you have enough time to fullow yom shot. Leaving a wounded animal is never an option.

Fishing platforms help anglers reel in big ones By Gary lewis WesCom Nevvs Service

Afew years ago, headed downriver from Maupin, I stopped to check out a platform that had been built out over the Deschutes River. While I stood there looking down at the water, a fellow pulled up in an old pickup and began to assemble his tackle. Mere months before, an uninsmed, unlicensed drunk driver crossed the line and changed this fishennan's life forever. As soon as he could, he started fishing again. He was grateful someone decided to build a wheelchair-accessible platfonn on his favorite river. He said he didn't need much help unless he hooked a big one. For a lot of us, fishing is as easy as walking down to the lake. But for 56 million Americans with disabilities, it isn't that simple. Ithoughtaboutthat when we were at Walton Lake last week. There is a wheelchair accessible dock on the pretty little reservoir east of Prineville. A nice walkway leads out of the parking lot and down along the lake to the platform, which is positioned adjacent to one of the better fishing spots. We paddled our canoe along the shoreline and both of the trout the girls landed bit within a long cast of the platform rail. Accessible fishing plat-


forms have been constructed on waters around the state, but until now there has been no comprehensive list. One of the troubles is that fishing spots come with varying degrees of accessibility. Some developed sites offer little more than parking close to the wate1; while others provide paved walkways, ramps and rails to stable platforms. Amy Baker at the Oregon Department ofFish and Wildlife office in Bend compiled a Jist of fisheries for disabled anglers.A quick scan shows 32 access points in the Central, Southeast and Eastern zones where anglers with mobility issues can fish for crappie, catfish, bluegill, bass, trout, steelhead and salmon. Similar lists are being compiled for the rest of the state and will be posted soon on the ODFW website. Cross-reference the waters listed on ODFWs Easy Angling web pages with the Fisheries for Disabled Anglers and you get the picture. A lot of times, the platforms are built within casting range of some of the best fishing holes. Access Oregon, on the ODFW web site (wv<,rw. lists many wheelchair accessible sites . Accessible fishing platforms attract anglers of all ages and abilities. Unlike disabled parking spots in

front of the grocery store, most platforms are open to any fisherman. I have spent my fair share of time hanging around on docks, accessible

and not so accessible. A common denominator amongst fishermen on docks is a quality called optimism. Guys shal'e their bait and more than a little of what

passes for wisdom. There is almost always someone ai'Ound who can lend advice on how to catch a fish and a helping hand to land the big one.

Teen sets record with 59-pound monster carp MILWAUKEE, Wise. (MCT) The teenagers were up to their usual late night activity. Zack Seitz, 18, of Campbellsport, Wis., and Nic Gerhartz, 19, of Kewaskum, Wis., stood in the bow. Matt Nelson, 18, ofCampbellspmt took his tum at the om·s. Pick a place for three young men to be at 11 p.m. on a Friday night, and most would never guess: bowfishing. 'We love it," said Seitz. As the 14-fuot jon boat moved slowly furough a back channel of Long Lake in Fond du Lac County, a generator hrnnmed and bright lights illuminated the shallows. Two carp appeared in the water ahead of the boat. Seitz and Gerhartz readied their bows. But then something diverted Seitz's attention."I saw a huge, glowing shape out of the comer of my eye," Seitz said. It too was a carp. And even though it was fmther away, Seitz opted to shoot for it. He tumed, aimed and released an arrow. The water erupted and the fish began swimming away from the boat. The aiTow struck the hefty fish near the dorsal fin. It took 5 minutes to reel it to hand. Although he'd taken hundreds of carp over the last few years, including some 30 pounders, Seitz wasn't prepared for the size of the fish on the end of his line. They pulled the fish over the transom and laid it on the deck. The fish's proper name is the common carp. But there was nothing ordinary about this one. It was 46 inches long and lmd a 32 %inch girth. Minutes later, a thunderstorm rolled in. The anglers rowed back to the boat landing and did something unusual in Wisconsin - they put the carp on ice. "I was thinking it might have a chance at the record," Seitz said. The recent Kewaskum High School graduate was right. The next morning, a certified scale at Loehr's Meat Market in Campbellsport determined the fish weighed 59 pounds. The altemate methods (spear or bow and arrow) Wisconsin carp record was 51 pounds. That fish was taken in Lake Geneva on May 31, 2006, by William Hoyt of Delavan.

U.S. Forest Service Biologist Brian Dick, the Starkey Project's area manager, scratches the neck of one of 37 tame elk, all cows and either 19 or 21 years old.

• Tour gives natural resource professionals look at the Starkey Project's unique elk

The comfort level the Starkey Project's tame elk have around people has allowed researchers to conduct studies that would be impossible with wild elk.


By Dick Mason The Observer

U.S. Forest Service Biologist Brian Dick did not need a bugle to call in a dozen cow elk a week ago at the Starkey Project . All Dick needed to do was issue a lighthearted command - "Come here, gals!" The words created a sight almost fit for the Animal Planet channel or "Ripley's Believe It Or Not." Howeve1; the scene may be impossible to witness a decade from now at the Starkey Project. The elk trotted over to a fence about 25 adult visitors were standing behind. The visitors excitedly put their hands through the fence, patting the heads of the elk, which nudged up against them. It was hard to tell who enjoyed greeting the other the most - the elk or the people. Few other places in the world offer such scenes, for elk are shy around people. The elk who greeted the visitors at Starke)~ however, are the exception to this rule of nature. They are not genetic anomalies but were tamed about two decades ago as calves so they could be easily handled by people conducting research. The elk were all captured within 48 hours ofbeing bam and then bottle fed by people regularly as part of an intense process designed to make them comfortable around people. Today 37 of these elk, all cows and either 19 or 21 years old, are still alive at the Starkey Project. No bulls are in the mix because many have sour dispositions. "They get too aggressive as they get older," said Dick, the area manager for the Starkey Project. No other elk have been hand-raised at the Starkey Project since the early 1990s, which means once these cows, which have already lived far longer than they would in the wild, have died, no other tame elk likely will be available. "Ten years from now none of these elk will be alive," said Dick. He was among the many people who gave presentations about work at the Starkey Project to about 150 natural resource professionals on a tour sponsored

However, their personalities are anything but alike. Some are almost as comfortable around people as social butterflies. Others are distant. The ones that greeted visitors at the fence might be Welcome Wagon hosts if they were humans. "They just want to know who the new people are," Dick said. The comfort level these animals have around people has allowed researchers to conduct studies that would be virtually impossible with wild elk. Biologists have been able to take blood samples on a daily basis, do ultrasound test" to make fat measurements, conduct diet studies and much more. In one diet study, people walk beside the

elk and record how many bites of specific types of vegetation they take. Some of the tame elk take time to get aqjusted to new people coming into the handling facilities. Dick pointed out that the elk can quickly sense if an individual is unsure of him or herself Some elk may get pushy with such a person. "They need to know you are in charge. If you send the wrong message, they will be more aggressive," Dick said. "It is important to be firm but not overbearing." Nobody is better at working with elk than the husband and wife team of John and Rachel Cook, research biologists with the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement. "They are magical with them," Dick said. The Cooks helped raise all the tame elk Stmkey now

has, devoting countless hours to the process. Dick speaks as ifit would be almost possible to find anyone else capable of doing what the Cooks have done to the make the elktaming project successful. "Their dedication is beyond belie(" Dick said. The 37 tame elk kept at the handling facility area are among almost 600 elk in the Starkey Project's 25,000-acre fenced facility. The Starkey Project is a joint wildlife research project conducted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service at the Starkey Experimental Forest and Range, 28 miles southwest of La Grande. The project is designed to measure the population response of deer and elk to the intensively managed forests and rangelands of the future. Research at the Starkey Project stmied in 1989.

Foxes, not deer, mav hold kev to rise in tvme disease By Amanda Alvarez Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

MILWAUKEE- Increases in the deer population have been blamed for the explosion of Lyme disease cases in recent years, but changes in the nwnbers offoxes and coyotes - and what they eat -may actually be responsible, according to a study published Monday. This could have implications for how wildlife is managed, and shed light on the complex ecosystems underlying the rise of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Wisconsin saw a 280 percent jump in Lyme disease cases in the decade from 1997 to 2007, with a total of 2,376 cases statewide just last year. Other states in the Midwest and the East Coast have seen even greater increases. The bacterial infection that starts with a distinctive bulfs-eye rash can require extensive antibiotic treatment and may lead to arthritic and nervous system complications. But what do small predators such as foxes and coyotes have to do with a disease spread by the deer tick? The answer lies not only in the lifu cycle of the Lyme bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, but also in the ecological changes of all the animals with which it comes in contact. Normally, small mammals get infected by the bacteria, ticks get infected by feeding on the mammals, and then ticks feed and lay their eggs on deer. Foxes disrupt the chain by feeding on the small mammals. "It was thought that deer were the only game in town for ticks," said Taal Levi, lead author of the new study and a research fellow at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies inNew York.

A drop in fox numbers contributed to an explosion in Lyme disease. Foxes have hunting habits that are different from those ofcoyotes: They will kill many small mammals at once, stashing the kill for later. Coyotes, on the other hand, especially those that have crossbred with wolves, will eat deer; rabbits, or even foxes, and are not efficient predators of small mammals the way foxes are. As coyotes have expanded in numbers and range, the new study suggests, they interfere with the important role served by foxes: to suppress Lyme disease rodent hosts, especially around human habitation. The chain of events that leads to Lyme disease starts small, with a larval tick biting, say, a white-footed mouse that carries Borrelia bacteria. The tick matures into a nymph that can infect other animals each time it feeds. The life cycle of the tick typically ends with deer, on which they prefer to feed and lay their eggs. The unlucky outdoorsman or hunter may intrude at any stage and be bitten. Hunting, it turns out,

was key to understanding the spread of Lyme. Using harvest records from 1982 to the present, the researchers tracked the number of deer, coyotes and foxes in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Virginia. In all four states, coyote hunter harvests were up over the 30-year period, while fox harvests decreased.

Debunking myths Incidence of Lyme disease over the same time period mirrored the rise ofcoyotes and the decline offoxes. Deer abundance and Lyme cases were not related in Wisconsin, debunking the common belief that more deer equals more Lyme, according to the study, which was published in the Proceedings of the Nationa! Academy of Sciences. There also was no consistent increase in Lyme with deer numbers in the other states. In fac~ an area with a high fox population in western New York was notably devoid of Lyme. A new picture was emerg-

However, calling with fawn bleat, or locating a cougar kill and waiting for a cat to return are often successful techniques.

ing, where Lyme appeared to be more closely associated with changes in predators rather than deer. Local survey data from the Wisconsin Department ofNatural Resources helped to corroborate the hunter data. Deer observations were stable, even somewhat declining, from 1999 to 2009. The initial emergence of Lyme in the state may be linked to a deer boom in the 1980s and '90s. In the past 15 years, howevm; deer have waned while Lyme has continued its relentless spread. This more recent burst in Lyme prevalence appears to be linked to the statewide rise of coyotes and fall in foxes. Foxes don't build dens where coyotes are present, and they may even be killed by coyotes. As a result, the small animals that host infected ticks are left to multiply freely. Infectious disease emerging from altered predatorprey dynamics is nothing new; Levi points to bubonic plague and hantavirus as diseases whose spread also

depends heavily on rodents and other common prey species. For Lyme research, shifting the focus from deer alone to the ecosystem underlying the disease has been challenging, says Levi, and perhaps overdue. Jennifer Coburn, Borrelia researcher at the Medical College ofWisconsin, agrees: "These ideas fill an important hole in our knowledge of why Lyme disease is continuing to emerge. It's not all accounted for by deer, who are dead-end hosts (for the bacteria)." As the prevalence of other tick-borne pathogens increases, tracking vvildlife numbers and transmission patterns may become even more important. Bacteria such as Anaplasma, and parasites like Babesia, are also spread by deer ticks. Last August, a new species ofEhrlichia bacteria was found in ticks in Wisconsin and Minnesota. While Borrelia, the bacteria that cause Lyme,caninfectsomeone 36 hours after being bitten, Anaplasma can be transmitted from tick to human much more quickly. To stay on the safe side, Coburn advises meticulous tick checks every evening when returning fium the outdoors. Based on their research, Levi and colleagues suggest a deer reduction strategy be combined with efforts to rehabilitate the red fox, to reduce tick abundance and ultimately to stall the spread of Lyme disease. In fact, this may be already happening organically, as wolves recover and cougars move eastward. These top predators may control the coyote population, thus helping foxes recover. Adrian Wydeven, an ecologist with the DNR, said wolf predation can also contain

the spread of chronic wasting disease in deer; but he believes implementing the new study's strategy of predator manipulation on a large scale would be very difficult. Wisconsin already has proactive management of these animals in place, according to David Drake, wildlife specialist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The No. 1 goal ofthe harvest strategies is to ensure healthy populations ofthese species, with the aim of minimizing crop damage and threats to property from deer and predators. Human diseases don't :figure high on the prioritylist '1 would not structure a deer season with the sole idea ofreducing Lyme disease:' said Drake. Rather, he views Lyme and other tick-borne maladies as a controllable public health concern, just not through wildlife management. The onus is on the individual, not the DNR, to manage ticks.

TICK PREVENTION TIPS Use bug repellents containing DEET. Wear long pants tucked into socks and long-sleeved shirts when walking in the woods or grassy areas. Check skin and clothes for ticks after being in the woods. Remove tick by grasping it as close to skin as possible with tweezers and gently pulling until it releases grip. Clean bite with antiseptic. If you live near woods, remove brush and litter and put wood chips or gravel path between your yard and the woods as a buffer zone to minimize tick exposure. - CDC, Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Sheep bill Controlled hunt draw

wilhdrawn results now online (MCT) Saying it's time to talk instead of fight, U.S. Rep Mike Simpson withdrew legislation Wednesday that would have blocked bighorn sheep protections from taking effect on the Payette National Forest. The Republican representing Idalw's 2nd Congressional District had previously attached a pair of riders to federal spending bills that were designed to stop or stall the Payette forest's plan to slash domestic sheep grazing over a three-year period. The grazing cuts are designed to keep domestic sheep and the pneumonia they carry away from vulnerable wild sheep. But the cuts also threatened to put a handful of ranchers out of business, and Simpson stepped in on their behalf

SALEM- Hunters that applied for a 2012 fall controlled hunt can find out if they drew the tag online at ODFW's My Hunter Information page. Hunters will need to enter their hunter/angler ID number, last name, date of birth, and then click "My Hunter Information'' and "Draw Results." A postcard with results will also be mailed this week to all hunters that applied for a controlled hunt. ODFW and license sales agents processed 373,227 controlled hunt applications this year - including 2012 spring bear hunts - rompared to just over 380,000 applications last year: A total of 139,710

controlled hunt tags were available - including 8,395 2013 spring bear tags that will be drawn next year. Hunters need to purchase their tags no later than the day before the earliest hunt period begins. Sports Pac license holders also must pick up tl1e:iJ: correct tag no later than the day before the earliest hunt period begins. Some of Oregon's big game hunts are limited entry, including almost all rifle hunting of deer and elk east ofthe Cascades and pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, and Rocky Mountain goat hunts. These hunts require a controlled hunt application.

Decline in king salmon is rooted in the sea By Richard Mauer McClatchy Newspapers

ANCHORAGE, AlaskaSomething in the ocean has been death to Alaska's king salmon. The state's iconic fish, treasmed for food, spmt and cash, should now be swimming in droves up rivers from the Southeast rain forests to the populated Railbelt and the Western Alaska tundm. But they're not. Th preserve futme runs, state officials are clamping down throughout Alaska, banning even catch-andrelease fishing of retUI'ning kings in Southcentral and halting subsistence king fishing on the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers. They're still reviewing whether to restrict the commercial setnetters in Cook Inlet who target sockeyes but can't help taking kings as well. "We're in a period oflow abundance and low returns, statewide, and whether it's from Southeast, Copper River, Cook Inlet, Kodiak, Nushagak, Yukon, we're just in this period oflow productivity in the ocean," said Ricky Gease, a biologist and director of the Kenai River Sportfishing Association. After leaving their home rivers as half-ounce smolt, most kings spend three to four years in the ocean, though the range is wide: as little as one year for kings that return as shrimpy jacks, or seven years for monsters. That's a lot oftime for something to go wrong. Biologist Tom Vania, the Cook Inlet regional com·dinator for the Alaska Department ofFish and Game, said the widespread failures of king salmon returns indicate the problem isn't freshwaterbased, such as not enough

People in Alaska worries about a decline in king salmon.

adult spawners in the prior generation, or a loss of eggs from some kind of river catastrophe. "Freshwater issues tend to be more isolated in a particular drainage," Vania said. Hatchery fish are also missing and biologists know those smolt made it to sea in normal nUillbers. Whatever the problem, it's been building for the last five years or so, Vania said. "Salmon populations are cyclic in nature," he said. "Right now, I have no reason to believe this is not just the bottom end of a cycle and that we won't come out of this cycle - you see that in all game populations. But there are a lot of changes going on in the ocean environmentrightnowsurrounding global warming. Our understanding of what that's going to do to anadromous species we probably won't know for a nUillber of years." Consultant Ray Beamesderfer of Cramer Fish Sciences in Oregon, an expeit in Pacific salmon, said shifts in ocean currents that began in the 1970s generally favored Alaska kings, or chinooks, to the detrin1ent of stocks from California, Oregon and Washington, some of which

have been declared endangered. ''We used to all think the ocean was a big homogenous pasture and they all went out there and can1e back," Beamesderfer said in a phone interview. "But now we know that there's a patchy distribution of resources in the ocean and we know it's an extremely dynamic enviromnent."

Columbia run robust If Alaska-based kings are going hungry, the opposite is true of the runs from California and the Columbia River system, which are at their best in years, he said. Sockeyes are also doing well. "Ocean conditions are the primary driver in the variability in what we're seeing," he said, urging fishermen to remain calm. ''The fundamentals of the Alaska salmon system are sound. The habitat is good, the fishing is controlled, there's no problem that's exacerbating these up or down cycles." When fishennen are not catching fish, they'll often think it has something to do with the fishennan in front of them, whether it's the guy with the bigger

dipnet 5 feet to the right or the huge trawler out in the ocean scraping up fish by the boatload. There's something to be said of the trawler. Kevin Delaney, a consultant who headed the state division of sportfishing until 2000, said the historical peak abundance of upper Cook Inlet kings came in the early 1950s before dropping off. That drop coincided v..citl1 the rise of unregulated foreign fishing outside what was then the nation's three-mile territorial limit. The Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act of1976 ended the pirate fishery by extending the U.S. economic zone to 200 miles. As a young Fish and Game employee, Delaney would count returning salmon in the Deshka and other upper Cook Inlet rivers. "In the early years, we would see lower nUillbers, numbers like we're seeing today - maybe tlnBe to five thousand fish in the Deshka;' Delaney said. "But by 1977, it was just amazing on the Deshka. I counted out of a helicopter and, counting 1-2-3-4, saw 25,000, 30,000 fish. It was extremely clear to us that the 200-mile limit on foreign trawl fishing had a tremendous effect on the marine survival of our king salmon. There was no other way to explain it." The runs remained strong tln·ough the early 1990s, he said. "Times were good - it couldn't have been any better;" he said. ''Then it started to drop off; stream by stream." By 2008, the crash was no longer a matter of a creek here or a drainage there _it was statewide. It took some years after passage of the Magnuson

Act, but eventually the foreign trawlers were replaced by U.S. vessels. While the pollock and cod they caught led to economic benefit-; in Alaska and Washington state instead ofJapan, China and Russia, the ships also netted thousands of kings each year in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. As "prohibited species," the kings were thrown back to sea, dead. According to a report by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, the king salmon bycatch gradually increased in the Bering Sea at the same time the numbers were declining in Alaska streams. "From 1990 through 2001, the Bering Sea chinook salmon bycatch average was 37,819 salmon ammally," the December 2009 report said. "Since 2002, chinook salmon bycatch nUillbers have increased substantially. The average from 2002 to 2007 was 82,311 chinook salmon, with a bycatch peak of 122,000 chinook salmon in 2007."Additional kings were being caught and wasted in the Gulf ofAlaska.

Agreeing on quotas Finally, in 2009, the council voted to limit the bycatch, effective 2011 in the Bering Sea. If the quota of60,000 kings is reached, pollock fishing must cease, said Diana Stram, a planner on the council staff. A similar quota of25,000 kings took effect this year in the Gulf of Alaska, said council staffer Diana Evans. State government officials from the governm· down have expressed their dislike of the U.S. Endangered Species Act but that law played a significant part in developing the quotas, Evans

said. Kings from everywhere mingle with pollock and cod, including those listed as endangered in Washington state and California. The quotas were derived using statistics that estimated the number of kings from endangered runs among the bycatch, and holding that number below the level that would trigger special action under the Endangered Species Act, Evans said. The council has ordered an aggressive sampling effort ofbycatch salmon to use genetics to attempt to determine their streams of origin, she said. Delaney said the bycatch is playing a role in the current king decline but its full significance is still unknown. ''Whether it's changes in the ocean environment, competitor species, climate change, bycatch in marine fisheries or a combination of all of them, the marine waters is where the hole in this bucket is," Delaney said. "It's not in Alaskans not putting enough fish on the spawning grounds routinely across all of the streams that produce king salmon." Two othe1· groups catch Cook Inlet king salmon while going after other species _ the drift boat fleet and setnet fisherman that primarily target sockeyes. Gease, the director of the Kenai River Sportfishing Association, said he believes the driftnet fleet could position itself in such a way as to nearly eliminate its bycatch of shore-hugging kings as it targets sockeyes.

Grande Ronde becoming fishable, improving by the day FISHING ContinU£d from Page lC GRANDE RONDE RIVER: trout, whitefish, bass Higher flows from spring runoff still persist, but the water is fishable and improving by the day. Under current conditions, trout and whitefish can be caught where flows are slower in pools, behind large rocks and boulders, and near shore. Warmer weather has brought out the bugs, as stoneflies are currently hatching along the river corridor. Flows are still too high and cold for bass, but anglers should take advantage ofthis great bass fishery later this summer. IMNAHA RIVER: salmon, trout The Imnaha River chinook fishery will close after sundown this Wednesday, June 27 as managers estimate prescribed impacts to wild Imnaha chinook have been met. River flows were more favorable last week, but catch rates remained at 20 hours per fish caught and 30 hours per fish harvested (both include jacks). Currently, conditions are great and anglers are encouraged to enjoy the last few days of the salmon fishery this week. JOHN DAY RIVER: smallmouth bass and channel catfish Below Kimberly smallmouth bass and channel catfish angling is good. River flows are perfect right now but will be dropping too low for drift boats within a couple of weeks. Trout fishing is open on the John Day Rivers and tributaries. LOOKINGGLASS CREEK:

chinook salmon, trout The chinook season is closed. McKAY RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, yellow perch, crappie, bass McKay has been producing good catches of crappie and largemouth bass. Angling for rainbow trout has been fair. The reservoir is currently 97 percent of capacity. OLIVE LAKE: rainbow and kokanee Was stocked with 2,000 legal-sized rainbow trout and 500 trophies. Kokanee salmon are also available in the deeper parts ofthe lake. PEACH POND (Ladd Marsh): rainbow trout The pond has been stocked multiple times theis season with legal and trophy-sized rainbow trout. Fishing is fair to good. As of Jan. 1, a parking permit is required to be on the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area. ROULET POND: rainbow trout The pond has been stocked with legal-sized trout and fishing is good. UMATILLA FOREST PONDS: trout Most ponds have been stocked; higher elevations ponds may still have limited access due to snow. Fishing is good. UMATILLA RIVER: trout The upper river should provide fair catch and release angling for rainbow trout, the river is dropping to near summer flow levels. WALLOWA LAKE: rainbow trout, kokanee, lake trout Kokanee fishing remains fair to good, but improving. Small kokanee are abundant this year, but some fish in the 14 to 18-inch range have been

reported. Kokanee are being caught throughout the lake, mostly by jigging and trolling. Anglers are also catching plenty of rainbow trout, especially at the south end ofthe lake. WALLOWA RIVER: salmon, trout Flows remain high, but greatly improving for trout fishing. Summer weather is bringing on some hatches of stoneflies and mayflies. Salmon fishing remains slow, with no hatchery fish reported yet. Only a few wild fish have been handled in the fishery to date. SOUTHEAST ZONE HWY 203 POND: trout, bass, bluegill Has been stocked with legalsized rainbows. PHILLIPS RESERVOIR: trout, perch The water level is at 90 percent full. Sampling on Phillips Reservoir shows nice sized trout (12-14 inches). Legalsized trout were stocked early to mid-April. Yellow perch have spawned and moved back into deeper water. PILCHER RESERVOIR: trout, crappie Water level is at 100 percent full. Gillnet samples indicate rainbows up to 16-inches are available.

POWDER RIVER: trout, spring chinook The section below Mason Dam has been stocked with legal rainbows. The river belowThiefValley Reservoir is a good location to catch large rainbow trout up to 20-inches this time of year. The 1000 feet of river immediately downstream of the dam is open to public access. Do not trespass on private property without permission. Chinook salmon are planned to be stocked in this section, as well, on June 14. The release will occur immediately downstream of Mason Dam. A chinook salmon season has been established, effective June 13. The open area is from the Hughes lane Bridge in Baker City upstream to Mason Dam. The daily bag limit is two chinook salmon. THIEF VALLEY RESERVOIR: trout Fishing is good for trout 12 to 20-i nches. Some recent sampling showed some 11 to 13-inch yellow perch in the reservoir as well. UNITY RESERVOIR: trout, bass, crappie Water level is at 77 percent full. Fishing should be good for trout 12 to 1- inches. WOLF CREEK RESERVOIR:

trout, steelhead Chinook fishing has slowed below Hells Canyon dam, but anglers are finding salmon to catch. Approximately 25 salmon were harvested this past week, and creel surveys are reporting catch rates of 50 hours per fish kept. Anglers are also reminded that new for 2012, only adipose-clipped trout may be kept in the Snake River. SNAKE RIVER (Above Brownlee Reservoir): channel catfish, flathead catfish, smallmouth bass Angling for catfish and smallmouth bass is improving. Flows at the Nyssa gauge averaged a little over 10,000 cfs and flows at the Weiser gauge averaged 14,139 cfs (June 24). Water temperature of the Snake River nearWeiser was 70'F (June 24). Boaters should continue to use caution the Snake River is high and turbid. Old debris remains in the river channel and new debris maybe enter the river from tributaries.

Great gray owls give a hoot in Spring Creek area Young have alreadV fledged VIEWING Continued from Page 1C wildlife area. Dogs are not permitted within the wildlife area, on or off leash except during authorized hunting seasons. There are numerous qualityviewing 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, greater white-fronted goose, northern pintail, American wigeon, ring-necked duck, mallard, gadwall, cinnamon teal, green-winged teal and northern shoveler. Broods of ducklings and goslings can be seen in nearly any wetland. Some Canada goslings are nearly as big as the adults and are beginning to "color up" to look like them, too. Shorebirds have included killdeer, black-necked stilt, American avocet, greater yellowlegs, spotted sandpiper, Wilson's snipe and others. Most local sandhill cranes have hatched and the young may be visible as they feed in meadows with their parents. A spotting scope or quality binoculars are important as the meadows are closed to entry and viewing is best from the viewpoint or county roads. There are also small groups of non-breeding sandhill cranes using the wildlife area. Cranes can be seen from county roads in several locations. Please report any sandhill cranes

Songbirds are nesting and many are feeding young. The songs ofterritorial males are mixed with the cries ofhungryyoung in the overall soundscape of LaddMarsh. wearing leg bands to the Ladd Marsh staff {541-963-4954). If possible, note the color and order of bands on each ofthe bird's legs (e.g ., pink above white on left leg; silver above black on right leg). The specific combination and order can identify individual birds. Songbirds are nesting and many are feed ing young . The songs ofterritorial males are mixed with the cries of hungry young in the overall soundscape of the marsh . With spring foliage at its peak, many birds can be heard but seeing them can be a challenge. Red-tailed hawks are feeding young and the Swainson's hawks are also nesting. Osprey have re-claimed nest sites and are incubating.They can be seen hunting over ponds on and near Ladd Marsh. For more information on access rules for Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area, please consu It the Oregon Game Bird Regulations or call the wildlife a rea at 541-963-4954.

WALLOWA COUNTY Herons are common and can be observed throughout the Wallowa Valley feeding along

creeks and rivers. Waterfowl species such as Canada geese and mallards can be observed on Wallowa Lake and throughout the Wallowa Valley feeding in agricultural fields. Prairie falcon, red-tailed hawk, northern harrier and Swainson's and Ferruginous hawks, as well as a variety of owls can be observed throughout Wallowa Valley and Zumwalt Prairie. Most raptors can be easily observed from county roads. A good pair of binoculars will improve viewing opportunities. A wide variety of songbirds can be observed from now through the summer in forested areas north of Enterprise, and along rivers and streams throughout Wa IIowa County. Mule and white-tailed deer are common in agricultural areas adjacent to Highway 82. Animals can be observed during early morning and late evening hours. Persons willing to drive down the rough Imnaha River Road will often observe bighorn sheep north of Cow Creek near Cactus Mountain. Elk can often be observed along the Zumwalt Road near Findley Buttes. Another good location to observe elk during winter months is on the Wenaha Wildlife Area nearTroy. A good place to look is along the Eden Bench Road during early morning or late afternoon hours.

The Spring Creek area, about 15 miles west of LaGrande, is world-renowned for its population of great gray owls. The birds nest early, so the young have already fledged -often leaving the nest before they can fly.They'll climb up leaning logs and branches to escape predation from ground predators. The adults are usually close-by, bringing food and acting as body guards.

Citv gets proactive With reservoirs full, dams open up their gates about invasive species By Heidi Desch Whitefish Pilot, Mont.

The Whitefish City Council is considering a boat inspection program with the goal of keeping aquatic invasive species out ofWhitefish Lake. The council discussed a possible inspection program at a work session June 18. No fonnal vote was taken on the matter. Several councilors seemed to favor beginning immediately, but noted that ¥:ithout money in the budget the earliest a program could start is next summer. "This is one situation where the consequences are everything," councilor Bill Kahle said. "This is the crown jewel of our town and we don't want to lose that." The council did ask the paiks depaitment to begin giving out expanded educational brochures on invasive species at City Beach. Councilor Richard Hildner said a delay in starting the full program shouldn't stop some immediate measures. "We need to start the education and outreach now," he said. "We need to begin planning now to implement a strategy so we can have something finn by next summer." The city started taking a closer look at boat i11<Jpections after vessels from the BNSF oil cleanup project were found to have fragments of zebra mussels during a state inspection process before they were launched into the lake. Aquatic invasive species have become an increasing concern for the state .


"The threat is real," Mike Koopal vvith Whitefish Lake Institute said. "Zebra mussels and watennilfoil ai'e the most likely threats. There is an economic impact and lifestyle impact if they get in the lake. The key here is to have some vision for prevention rather than trying to treat them." The institute presented infonnation to the council about what a city prevention and inspection program might look like. Concerns were also raised that Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks inspection stations might not catch all boaters headed from out-of-state and in particular those traveling from Canada to Whitefish Lake. An inspection station in Eureka is located on Highway 37 and is for westbound traffic only. There is no check station between the border crossing at Sweet Grass and Whitefish. The number of stations is largely determined by available funding. The original suggestion to have a boat inspection site at City Beach also raised concerns that boaters tumed away from City Beach might put in at another launch on the lake. Councilor Frank Sweeney suggested that an inspection station on U.S. Highway 93 might be a better location in an attempt to stop more boaters. "Then it doesn't matter which boat launch they go to," he said. "I'm just staggered that the state isn't taking a more proactive approach to tlris."

KALISPELL (MCT) - The Kootenai River 1·ose more than two feet above flood stage Wednesday at Bonners Ferry, Idaho, prompting a variety of emergency response efforts, and Lake Koocanusa con-

tinues to fill even with Libby Dam spilling water at full capacity. Hungry Horse Dam, too, was releasing high flows since Hungry Horse Reservoir is full. High flows at Bonners Ferry are expected

to continue through the weekend, said Doug Weber, chief of emergency management for the U.S. AI·my Corps of Engineers in Seattle. The Corps has a response team providing assistance to Boundary

County and the city of Bonners Ferry. About 300 "super sack" sandbags have been deployed on about 500 feet of riverbank to protect the Kootenai River Inn Casino and Spa, Weber said.
