In a small business roundtable discussion, Walden (RHoad River) talked about the Healthy Forest Management Act, legislation he is co-sponsming that would increase state control over forest management in high fire risk areas to better protect and improve forest health. The bill would allow states, in consultation with counties, to designate areas ofhigh risk and develop emergency hazardous fuel reduction projects, including active timber management.

The U.S. Govemment has sued the owners of the Wallowa Mountains Office and Visitor Center, which bumed to the ground July 11, 2010, for more than $2.5 million. The sui~ filed July 9, claims Seaside Associates Limited Partnership failed to properly supervise workers hired to refinish the exterior ofthe log building. The suit claims the improper application, cleaning and storing of combustible sealant supplies resulted in the fire that destroyed not only the visitor center, but offices for the U.S. Forest Service, Farm Services Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Wallowa County Soil and Water Conservation District.

They then put other equipment in the cmt and covered the cmt with a third drop cloth. The cart was stored undercover on the porch of the visitor center. The storage created an environment conducive to spontaneous combustion of the Penofin oil finish. The draping of the third drop cloth to cover the supplies and equipment provided an environment that limited cooling breezes and enhanced heat retention. A spontaneous combustion occurred, a fire developed, and the building was destroyed.

Crews contain wildfires in Southeast Oregon By Don ller The Observer

Crews contained the Long Draw fire in Malheur County Sunday night, bringing an end to what has been described as the worst wild fire in Oregon in over 100 years. The fire, which consumed 900 square miles, shut down Highway 95 for a couple of days and spread rapidly to the Owyhee Canyon. Crews are now working on mopping up the area. The threat of the Miller Homestead fire, located south of Harney Lake, has decreased. The fire is more than 70 percent contained after burning more than 250 square miles. The threat to homes and structures in FTenchglen and the south Harney Lake area has decreased, although a level one evacuation order remained in effect. Highway 205 has reopened to traffic, although there ar·e still wamings of smoke. The Miller Homestead fire destroyed two structures, one long abandoned and another that was still in use. Some livestock has been reported as lost, but no accurate head counts have been made yet.

These losses are in excess of $700,000. DeAguero said the suit is the direct result of Seaside Associates insurance offering so little in damage compensation. Pursuant to the lease, Seaside was required to maintain the building and make building improvements as needed. On or about July 5, 2010, KC. Knight, acting on behalf ofSeaside, hired Alberto and Joel Barragan to power wash, cau1k and seal the exterior of the building. Knight supplied the Barragans with tools and equipment, including Penofin oil sealant finish. The suit claims on July 11, 2010, the Barragans applied sealant to the exterior of the building. After finishing their work, the Barragans

The Bonita Complex, located 15 miles northwest of Westfall, was helped by rain Sunday. The fire is reportedly 85 percent contained. Crews have begun mop up operations and demobilizations have begun for that fire. The Bonita fire destroyed key sage grouse habitat as well as some grazing land. The fires in Southeast Oregon have destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres of grazing land and the Bureau of Land Management is reporting that it may take up to two years for the land to recover. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency announced that it has streamlined the disaster designation process and has used the Conservation Reserve Program to make emergency grazing land available for ranchers. "FSA has authorized livestock producers for emergency use of CRP in those counties and in the contiguous counties. This allows livestock producers to move their livestock to CRP acres in neighboring counties," said a statement from the office of farm programs at the Farm Service Agency.

Walden: Trust closer to inheriting USFS Compound By Katy Nesbitt The Observer

The Maxville Heritage Trust is getting closer to inheriting the U.S. Forest Service Compound in Wallowa, according to U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R, Hood River. Walden said the prope1ty should be transferred before mid-August. Walden toured the 1.1-acre site in downtown Wallowa with Maxville Executive Director Gwen Tiice and Wallowa County Commission Board Chairman Mike Hayward Friday afternoon as part of an Eastern Oregon visit. In 2009, Trice and Sen. Ron Wyden, (D) Portland, began working toward having the Forest Service Compound given to Maxville to use as an interpretive center. Wyden introduced a bill that passed the Senate and has now passed out of committee. Walden said it should get a vote by the full House before the representatives go on their summer recess next month. Trice is building relationships with railroad and forestry interests, including the Western Forestry Center in Portland where the Trust has hosted fundraisers. When the compound is

The fonner range1)s house was damaged by water and needs extensive work. Trice envisions the house to serve as a multi-use facility. The old warehouse will be used as a museum, she said. To help the planning process of refurbishing the buildings, Trice said she is looking to theNational Trust for Historical Places for an assessment grant that will help train her board in decision-making to preserve the historic site. Walden's stop in Wallowa County was part of a whirlwind visit of Eastern Oregon counties. He said he's talked with ranchers and agency representatives about the fires raging in Harney and Malheur counties that have killed cattle and destroyed forage on Bureau of Land Management grazing al-

lotments as well as private land. "I talked to a couple ranchers who have seen walls of fire nine miles long," said Walden. He said he's trying to work out agreements in contiguous counties, including some in Idaho and Nevada, to be able to use Conservation Reserve Program lands, land set aside from grazing, now that so much of the available livestock grazing area is gone. "There's no CRP ground in Malheur or Ramey County;' said Walden.

Walden said he's been told by BLM officials the bumed land may take two or more years to recover before it can be grazed again. Much of the land will need re-seeding, perhaps needing 200,000 pounds of seed. He said he also learned that the sagebrush in Malheur and Harney counties is at 50 to 70 percent below its normal moisture level and has been affected by a moth, making it more volatile than normal. Besides losing cattle and much needed grass, wild horses are being rounded up,

Officials for the Bureau ofLand Management say it's possible drought conditions could force removal of livestock or temporary closure of grazing allotments in some areas. BLM District Manager Doug Furtado in Battle Mountain said he sent out a letter to permit holders in January asking for their help in identifying steps ahead of time that they could take if necessary.

Invent new ways to succeed Residents ofUnion, Wallowa and Baker counties will tell you in a hemtbeat that living in bucolic small towns ainidst a sprawling and beautiful national forest is just great. If you asked them in a smvey, they'd tell you they wouldn't have it any other way. Ask them, though, what they think about the health of the surrounding forestland, loss ofjobs in the timber industry, and government interference in their way of life, and the views expressed might not be so sunny. They weren't, in fact, in the University of New Hampshire's recently completed Communities and Forests in Oregon survey of people in the tri-county area. Communities and Forests in Oregon is an ongoing project looking at the changes places like ours are going through as they struggle with forest issues. Those doing the survey say our area is a good example of rural America confronting declining timber production and changing economies. For people who live here the survey, conducted last fall, doesn't yield many surprises. Most of us want better forest health, more timber jobs, and less govemment regulation, and that's what the majority ofthe suiVey respondents said. Still, the researchers came to some interesting conclusions beyond the obvious. One says that "the pattem of survey responses reflects a region transitioning from historical resource dependency to a more diversified future based to a greater degree on natural amenities." That's a pretty way of saying our old way oflife, or at least one important part of that way, is dying out. Given the paltry number oflumber mills left standing in the wake of the resource use battles of the last century, and the proliferation of artists trying to make a living off the scenery, you can't really argue with it. The survey gets really interesting when local responses are compm·ed to those from people living in areas away from here, particularly the metropolitan areas. According to the results, people not from here disagree with us by and large on resource and land use. Generally, they favor less resource use and more regulation of what people can do with their property. That can't bode well for small town folk who live only to give their kids full bellies and a shot at a college education. The city slickers have the vote. We only wish they knew more about the current movement in Northeast Oregon, the intensive cooperative effort by community leaders, the wood products industry, forest agencies and conseJVationists to find ways to create jobs while conserving and improving the timber resource. There are many people here who passionately believe job creation and conseiVation can and should go together, hand in hand. Iftl1e New Hampshire srnvey teaches us anything, it's that we need to show the world it's true. It's not a matter of going back to the old ways, after all. It's a question of inventing a new one.

The problem with roads he U.S. Forest Service really has no one to blame, but themselves, for the recent outcry over the Wallowa-Whitman Travel Management Plan. Much like the federal and state wildlife agencies, and the Bmeau of Land Management, the USFS has a lot of very well qualified and hard-working people. But, they never seem to put a high priority on really engaging the public in their progr8llls. And, down the road, it ends up biting them in the burn - in the court room, at the polling booth or at local, fist-shaking rallies. People need to "feel the fur, the feathers and the pine needles" if they can truly be expected to support agency prograins or projects. Too many kids are graduating without a clue as to how ecosystems operate and how people fit in to those systems. And, it seems to be getting worse instead ofbette1: Many of these agencies continue to down-grade their public relation and public education prograins. For more than 50 years, I've hiked, horsed, fished and hunted on nearly every comer of the Wallowa-Whitman. I'm not sure if every proposed road closure is justified in the plan, but there's simply too many places where one can stand on one road and throw a rock to the next one. On too many ridges there's a road at the top, two in the middle and one along the creek bottom - and all


the spurs leading from them. I've come to realize that for many years we've had two types of road builders on om forest. The first group comes with graders, dozers, transits and, at least some expertise in the project at hand. These guys built roads to get the logs to our mills and provide adequate access for forest users. They put in suitable cattle guards, stremn culverts, water bars, and with input from many, they usually made an effort to consider environmental precautions. The other type of road builders caine only with a chain saw, winch and 4x4 without much thought to the resources or how it might affect other forest users. There were no blueprints or consideration to grade, streains and erosion concems. See the ruts It starts rather simply - a hunter drops an elk too far from his vehicle. Rather than quarter it and pack it out on his back, he weaves through the trees, drops a few in his way and c81Ves a road to the animal. The next guy comes along and sees the ruts. He ventures down the path and finds a patch offire wood, sees more wood down the ridge and caiVes the road even more. More drivers come by, and before long you have an established road system. They feel the need to see every overlook from their vehicle window. They poke a

road to every meadow for a camp and then 4x4 this once-beautiful meadow to death. All these seemingly benign reasons for using the forest have had the end result of producing a mind-boggling maze of roads in our forest -most of which were built for selfish reasons by folks with no expertise on proper road construction. And the real sobering reality is that it still goes on unchecked. What seems rather ironic to me is that many of the people that are screaining about the travel plan and how it might affect their access were the same ones that, not so long ago, were passing and signing petitions to sell our public lands to private (highest bidder) interests. I wonder how much access we'd have once these private landowners started putting up the "no-trespassing" signs. I really question their wit. As a youth, I was always the happiest while hiking and hunting areas away from the roads - enjoying the peace and solitude that enriched my soul. In the end, there's real good m·guments for building a road to every huckleberry patch, firewood snag or elk wallow. But, when that happens it will be a sad day forme. The author; James D. Ward, is a top knotch wildlife photographer and La Grande resident.

"There is a real tendency to hire consultants who advise politicians to be cautious, cautious. It is dangerous. I never believed in doing that and I never have."

ROBERTS Continued from Page lA

Sunday at Cook Memorial Library. Roberts, who now lives in Portland, was elected Oregon's first woman governor in 1990, serving one tern1 from 1991 to 1995. She earlier was secretaiy of state from 1985 to 1991 and a member ofthe state House of Representatives from 1981 to 1985. Roberts speaks today almost like she cannot believe the comse her life has taken. "Sometimes it even seems like a fairytale," Roberts said. She had long felt a need to tell her story in a memoir. Roberts found penning her book far more difficult than fielding tough questions on the campaign trail. "I thought it (writing an autobiography) would be a cinch. After all, I was there for every day of my life," Roberts said in one of many comments that sparked laughter from her audience. She found the process of putting her life story in book fmm stirring and transformative. Roberts explained that it forced her to reflect on her unlikely life story. "I was traveling an emotional road, unpacking the boxes of my life. I had become pmt storyteller and pmt self therapist... unleashing emotional luggage from passages of my life," Roberts said. The book, which tells how Roberts, the mother of a autistic child, began her life in public service as an advocate for the rights of children with

disabilities, took about six years to write. The process took longer than anticipated in part because of the extensive fact checking she did. "The project seemed

endless." "I slashed pearls ofwisdom," she said. The former governor's memoir was published by Oregon State University

Press. Roberts said it was fitting that it was released 100 years after women in Oregon were first given the right to vote. Roberts read passages of

her book Sunday and then fielded questions. She was asked why so many politicians answer questions in evasive fashion. Roberts puts the blame at the feet of the consultants they hire. "There is a real tendency to hire consultants who advise politician to be cautious, cautious. It is dangerous. I never believed in doing that, and I never have," Roberts said. The Democrat said she has strived to speak her mind throughout her political career. She cited the first 1990 gubernatorial debate as an exmnple. The Republican nominee was Dave Frohnmayer, and there were two other candidates. The toughest que.stion of the night came from a radio newsman. He asked each candidate to nmne which candidate on stage they would vote for if they could cast a ballot for themselves. The three other candidates all were evasive, saying they would only vote for themselves. Roberts, who answered the question last, took it head on, saying Virithout hesitation that she would vote for Frohnmayer. "Why in the world would I say I would have voted for my (top) opponent? Because I

would have," Roberts said on Sunday. She said several newspapers declared her the winner of the debate in large part because of her straightforwm-d answer to the question. Roberts was elected governor the same year Measure 5, the property tax limitation measme, was approved by voters. Measure 5 resulted in funding for schools and public services in Oregon being slashed. Measure 5 frustrated Roberts greatly but it did not prevent her fium a nmnber of notewmthy achievements. The former governor said she was proudest of the work she did to provide more a:ffurdable housing for Oregonians. She made this an issue at a time when it was not. "If you do not have a place to live, your chances of success are pretty minuscule," Roberts said. She also spoke with pride about how she got outside firms to come to and invest in Oregon. 'We brought more money into Oregon than during any four-year period." Roberts emerged from her tenure as governor untainted by scandal or controversy and with her reputation for integrity, one she chmishes. ''Nobody ever questioned my ethics or honesty during my four years as governor."

Besides the Boise Cascade holdings, Forest Capital purchased North Idaho timberlands from Crown Pacific; 251,000 acres for $189,000 in 2002, and 35,000 acres from Louisiana-Pacific in 2003. Just seven weeks after Forest Capital purchased the Boise Cascades land in 2005, 180,000 acres were

sold to Tim Blixseth, former principal of Crown Pacific. Blixseth also purchased 195,000 acres of Forest Capital land in the state ofWashington with a deal to trade 175,000 acres to the department ofnatmal resomces, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review. Forest Capital's timber assets were managed like a mutual fund. They invested money from individuals and investors who want to diversify their portfolios by owning forest land. In addition to selling timber, Forest Capital had a real estate arm, Westslope Properties, which sold

high value timber parcels for amenity properties.

Russel Hunt, a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, from Summerville was presented vvith the Ann Schumacher Memorial Award at the annual conference for the National Association for Rural Mental Health (NARMH) held this year in Anchorage, AK from May 1618. The Schumacher Award was created in memory of Ann Schumacher, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker from Leoti, KS. Schumacher was the president-elect of NARMH in 2010 and was murdered by her ex-husband in the presence oftwo oftheir children three months prior to taking charge of that national organization. She was an extraordinary practitioner in a very rural community. Like Schumacher, Hunt has practiced his entire career in rural communities. He was selected for the award by a committee that recognized his commitment to provide services to nrral populations where historically few services have been offered. He has lived all of his life in rural Oregon and Washington and has been involved in public service since becoming an Eagle Scout in 1966. Presentl)~ he divides his time between a private practice with offices in La Grande and Baker City and half-time with the La Grande VA Clinic. Having retired from the military after over 23 years of service, Hunt is active in his local church and can occasionally be found playing music in the community. Hunt says "This award is especially significant because it recognizes individual

providers who live and work in the trenches. Ann was a spectacular provider who combined the qualities of professional excellence, importance of family and an understanding of spiritual needs. She was not afraid to do what needed to be done, even in the face of adversity. She was my friend and colleague and I am humbled to be compared to her." The award reads: Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise; risking more than others think is safe; dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible. The NARMH Board of Directors and the NARMH membership feel that Ann Schumacher and Russel Hunt exemplifY the above statement. Linda Werlein, President ofNARMH, says "Russel Hunt demonstrates all the characteristics that are required to receive this awaid. He not only has developed an outstanding practice for individuals with mental illness and veterans, but he has been a tireless advocate for those individuals. He is a past member ofthe NARMH board and he and his wife, Anita, continue to be huge supporters ofNARMH's effort." The National Association for Rural Mental Health (NARMH) is a professional organization that serves the field of rural mental health. NARMH's membership includes the entire spectrum of the rural mental health community: consumers, family members, practitioners, administrators, educators, researchers, and policy makers.

COVE - Cove city councilors last week agreed to support this year's Cove Cheny Fair slated for Saturday, Aug. 18. The council heard from Kathy Thew, chair of tl1e Cheny Fair parade, and agreed to sign a letter of support for the parade and to assist the Cheny Fair committee with traffic control. Both Thew and John Van Schoonhoven told the council the Cheny Fair comInittee would assume any insurance liability for the parade and fair. The council had previously discussed any effect the city's palticipation might have upon the liability insurance the city carries. The councilors requested the Cheny Fair committee put its request for a financial contribution from the city into writing so they could act upon it at an upcoming meeting. City Recorder Donna Lewis said Heidi Van Schoonhoven, chair for this year's fair, had verbally asked if the city might be able to donate $800 this year. John Van Schoonhoven told tl1e council tl1e Cheny Fair this year will commemorate the 150th settling of Cove in 1862. He said the fair organizers are working "to identify de-

Von Schoonhoven, a past chairman of the Cove Community Association, said the CCA is working witll the Cove school system to promote teaching the rich community history: He told councilors the fair was selected as the number one community concern at the annual goal meeting of the CCA this year. He said the fair annually ''brings business to Cove and builds a sense of unity in the community." The Cheny Fair kicks offAug. 18 with its pm·ade through town, ending at the Ascension School grounds where there will be booths, food, music, activities, and arts events.

Trip to Mount Vernon, Wash., continues with visit to theater I promised in tile ast article we will ontinue the trip to Mt, Vemon, Wash. Leaving Leavenworth, Wash., we traveled northwest on U.S. 2 along the mesmerizing tumultuous whitewater of the Wenatchee River. It was lightly raining and foggy giving the area a mystical aura. Once we were out of the canyon the highway climbed through densely forested areas opening occasionally to grassy meadows. As we entered into the Stevens Pass m·ea the air chilled and the rain turned into wanna be snmvflakes. This combined with the fog and the many waterfalls spilling offthe mountain over the rocks provided breathtaking beauty. One ofthe main purposes of om trip had been to visit the historic Lincoln Theatre in Mount Vernon on Thursday and we planned our arrival for Wednesday so we could explore the area a bit before our appointment. A friend had suggested since we were so close to the San Juan Islands we should stay on Orcas at one ofher favorite B&B's - Turtleback Fann Inn. It sounded like our kind of place so Dale made reservations for two nights - one before the theater appointment on Wednesday and the next night. As you will soon see there was something quite wrong with this plan. We arrived in Mount Vernon shortly before noon and Dale could hardly contain himself. He had to take a quick peek at the theatre.

And self-sacrifice is a direct manifestation of a humble person. We are all nonnal people 'vith jobs, families, children and goals.

Lilliputian Pasta


Peanut butter+ chocolate perfect snack


Share my berries? That's for the birds While the hot weather has people clambering for a cool spot in the shade, a trip to the river or a rest in an air-conditioned room, the recent near 100-degree temperatures have speeded garden growth. And there's nothing that delights gardeners like seeing the tiny plants that were stunted in early spring begin to grow like weeds in the hot summer sun. (Recent rain showers also have brought welcomed help to garden irrigators.) In my own gm:den, I've watched the sunshine and heat send the bean stalks climbing toward the sky. The zucchini plants have expanded to clearly dominate their spot in the garden.And little yellow blossoms have been transformed into little green tomatoes that I hope will reach their full size and matmity before cold nights return and their progress is stunted. I've also enjoyed watching the strawberry patch that John (my able assistant) and I planted in May bloom and begin to produce benies, although according to the Extension Service we won't get a full crop until next year. We've been watching and waiting to harvest our first berry, which is heading toward the perfect shade of red. We chose Seascape, a day-neutral cultivar, which according to the Extension Service will produce beiTies throughout late spring and summer. Seascape is "of moderate vigor and good durability" and produces the "best fruit quality combined with size for Oregon in day-neutral types," according to an Extension Bulletin rating strawberry cultivars for Oregon written by Chad E. Finn, a berry crops geneticist, and Bernadine C. Strik, Extension berry crops professor at Oregon State University. We just happened to pick the Seascape cultivar because it was the only one on my list of day-neutrals for sale at the Rock Garden Greenhouse on Cedar Street this spring. Through the Master Gardener progrm:n I lem:ned that in addition to the day-neutral varieties of strawberries there are also June-bearing, which produce one crop per year between June and July, and everbearing, which produce one crop in spring and another in the fall, with few benies in between. Professor Strik convinced me to choose a day-neutral over an everbearing variety with her advice that "they are the better choice for fresh fruit throughout the season, as they have a longer fruiting period and better fruit quality. She also advised growing a June-bearing crop as well, but my space is limited so I had to choose. I remember that day in May when we drove away from the greenhouse with our 12 plants in tow and greenhouse owner Mm:k Se1vid's wm:ning about the need to plant enough to share with the birds. Again, our limited backyard space made it impossible to plant more berries. A special spot just for them had been carved out last fall and all other available space was allocated to other crops. Next, my sister wm:ned me about the disappointment offinding berries pecked to pieces by the birds just when they were ready to harvest. So as weve watched the plants grow and produce leaves as big as my hand and gigantic white blossoms that have transformed into large green berries, the thought of the produce going to the birds has become unbearable. I placed little pinwheels around the berry patch in the hope that it would keep the birds away; but still I had my doubts. I know about covering the berries with netting. We've grown small quantities of strawberries in the past and it was easy to toss a net over the hanging basket that held them. See Benies/Page 9B

School often starts when kids still have summer on the brain. So these easy-to-make bars have summer in mind, too. We aimed for a simple snack with the flavor of s'mores, but with the texture, ease and portability of puffed 1ice treats. We ended up with a layer of marshmallow-rich crushed graham crackers topped with chocolate. To make things interesting, we turned them into peanut butter s'mores bars. But if your kids aren't peanut butter inclined, just leave it out.

For summer pasta salads think small, as in small pastas, like this orecchiette with grilled vegetables.

For summer salads, uo small on the pasta By Susan M. Selasky Detroit Free Press

What is orzo? How do you cook Israeli couscous? Can you say orecchiette? There's a dizzying aiTay of dry pastas on store shelves. Some have fancy names for something that's basically macaroni. We're giving big pasta like elbows and corkscrews the summer off and downsizing for potluck salads. Too often dainty pastas like orzo and ditalini wind up in soups, but they're great for salads and just as economical as their big sisters. And they cook more quickly because of

their size, so you can make pasta salad in a snap. Larger pasta shapes tend to overwhelm the other ingredients. Small ones make room for scooping it all up in every bite. Pasta salads are must-haves for feeding a crowd because they go a long way. When making, allow about 1 cup of salad per serving if you're having just one salad and a half cup if you have two or more salads. About 50 percent of your salad should be made up of pasta and the rest should be vegetables or other ingredients. See Pasta/ Page 2B

In a large saucepan over mediumlow, heat the butter, marshmallows and peanut butter. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove the pan from the heat and add the graham cereal and graham crackers. Stir to coat. Using buttered fingers, press the mixture into the prepared pan. Set aside. In a microwave-safe dish, melt the chocolate bits by heating in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Spread the melted chocolate over the bars and sprinkle with the peanuts.

Dining a1 fresco- without the annoyances By Alison Highberger

you'd be sad to lose or break. The point is to be relaxed and familyfriendly," Barker said. If you don't like plastic wine glasses, Barker suggested using sturdier or heavier ones, like hand-blown Mexican glassware, to avoid breakage.

We wait so long for summer, so why don't we eat dinner outside at home more often when the wm:m weather finally a11ives? I know, I know: The table and chairs need to be cleaned off It's annoying to haul the silverware, plates and glasses outside. It's even more annoying to drag it all back inside. Stuff might break. The ·wind and dust are going to kick up. It's hot; later it1l be too cool. You're tired after a long day. Bugs. It's simply not worth the hassle on a weeknight. But dining al fresco, or ''in the fresh," as it translates from the Italian, can become an easy and wonderful habit that helps you revel in summer while enjo)~ng family and friends at the same time. After dirmer outside, if you allmv yourself a few minutes to just sit, feeling the arrival of dusk, watching the first stars appem:· in the sky; you might find yourself relaxing and feeling contented. Peaceful. Full of summer.

A little planning ahead will help you get in the al fresco groove this summer and stay there. In Central Oregon, al fresco dining only makes sense from mid-June through midSeptembei; if we're lucky, so, fur goodness' sake, go outside and eat.

napkins won't blow away like paper napkins. "To keep your tablecloth from flying away; you can purchase pre-made tablecloth weights (that attach to each comer), or make your own from clips, wire and decorative items of your choice," said Barker. For a decorative touch, use two napkins, one a solid color, one pattemed, and pull them together through a napkin ring.

Light up the night Ifyour table has an umbrella, or it sits under a pergola or deck roo£ consider adding strings of clear, white lights. These will add a festive ambience to al fresco dining. "I like to leave up white 'm~nkle lights' all summer, plus I hang mini-lanterns or wired votives from trees, pergolas or hangers. Those tiki torches also make any area instantly fun, although be mindful around small children," Barker said. Candle options Breezy c~mtral Oregon evenings aren't conducive to candlelit dinners unless the flan1es are protected. ''Use clem:; cylindiical vases of various heights and place candles in a base of sand or smallrock.c; ," Barker said. "The glass protects the candle flame, but doesn't obstruct your view of family across the table." See AI Fresco/Page 2B

PASTA Continued from Page lB Here are some smaller shapes to tcy: Orzo is rice-shaped and less than ~-inch long when cooked. Besides salads and soups, you can serve it as a side dish or stuff it in hollowed tomatoes. Couscous comes in two sizes. The smaller version is sometimes mistaken for a grain; the larger, also called Israeli couscous, is pearl-sized. The latter has been showing up in more and more recipes, including salads. Israeli couscous adds little starchy bursts to today's Israeli Couscous with Watermelon, Watercress and Feta. In Italian, orecchiette (ohrayk-kee-EHT-tay) means ''little ears," after the pasta's shape. Orecchiette is a good change-up for salad because it's not super small but still not huge. Whatever pasta you choose, putting it in a salad offers an easy way to use the other bits and pieces lurking in your refrigerator. Have half a bell pepper or cucumber? Chop it up and toss it in. You can use just about any raw or cooked vegetable in a pasta salad. Meats, too. Think chunks ofham or salami, prosciutto and even leftover rotisserie chicken. Shredded or cut up cheeses are also good additions. Smaller pastas do better with a vinaigrette-style dressing. That way, they don't get lost in heavy mayonnaise and other creamy dressings. Afruity extra-virgin olive oil works best, but you also can use regular olive oil. And if you can't bear to stray from the corkscrew or penne pastas, you can find mini versions. A few years ago, Barilla pasta introduced its piccolini (meaning "little ones") line of mini pastas. Look for farfelle (bowties), penne, fusilli and gemelli.

ALFRESCO Continued from Page lB Battery-powered candles are ubiquitous now. "Place a battery-powered votive inside a wine glass and put a mini-lampshade over it, if you're going to be outside when it's fairly dark," Barker said .

A place for everything The key to making al fresco dining easy all summer is to get a box, bucket or picnic basket to hold all of the items you11 use outside. Find a permanent place for it in a closet, or a comer of the kitchen or dining room. Your "al fresco kit'' will hold a tablecloth, cloth napkins, utensils or a utensil caddy, dishes, candles, vases, etc., so you're always ready to eat outside with ease. "You can even throw the box in the car and use the tablecloth as a picnic blanket, or over a picnic table in the park, and have an alfresco night at Shevlin Park or Drake Park. Recreate your special ambiance anywhere outdoors," Barker said. Fabrics add visual interest Embrace the wind that kicks up on many Central Oregon evenings, and use lightweight fabrics to create a magical effect. "I love to drape easy, breezy fabric around a pergola overhead, or hang it from a wire to define the dining space outside. Just make sure to have it short enough to not blow on you and your guests during dinner. Depending on where the sun is when you sit down to dinner, the fabric can break up the sunlight, too, so it's not in peoples' eyes," Barker said. Barker also suggested

Washington's Marvhill Museum

Marvhill benefits from $10 million exoansion the expansion kicked off a fundraising campaign that included a $1.5 million grant from the Washington state Building for the Arts program. The idea of attaching a modem pavilion to the 72-year-old house that many locals remember as being unchanged from their childhood days wasn't without controversy. "There were a few people locally who felt we were committing a crime by doing this," says curator Grafe. "I think they have to come visit it to make up tlte:ir minds."

BERRIES Continued from Page lB But the thought of placing a net over this new patcl1 was a bit more intimidating. It took some thinking to devise a way to cover fue kidney-shaped design of our raised bed berry patch encased behind a rock wall. A reference book titled "Wildlife Pest Control around Gardens and Homes" available from the Extension Office suggested several ways to keep birds out of tl1e benies: cove1ing the crop with netting, using twisted reflective tape stretched above the crop that is said to scare birds away as it blows in the 'vind, or even placing a row of tin can lids strung on a wire above the crop. We chose tl1e netting because of the book's warning that birds soon become accustomed

to shiny fuings blowing in fue wind and begin to ignore fuem after a while. The book showed an example ofhow PVC pipe can be used to form the framework for securing tl1e %-inch bird netting over a raised bed crop. We improvised with a design ofour own, bending PVC pipe to form a Conestoga wagon-style frame over our berry patch and then securing the netting with a rope around the stone frame and adding twist ties at intervals around the circumference of the raised bed. The fust ripening berry was still on the vine the morning after our protective covering was in place. We'll see whether we are worthy adversaries for the starlings, sparrows and robins we're defending against as the season continues.

Hunsaker is coming out of retirement for this one·time·only performance to benefit the Bandstand in the Park project.

Woman must stop dreaming

Alaska: Feline mayor is the eat's pajamas

DEAR ABBY: TI1ere is a guy at work I've been attracted to for as long as I have worked here- six years. Twork in the office and he is in the field. We see each other a couple of time; a week, if that. We attended a retirement party for one of the employees recently. He started pursuing me. We ended up getting to know each other and stayed together the rest of the night. We seen1ed to get along very well. We took a drive, and he was holding my hand and saying all the things a woman wants to hear. We kissed. When the night came to an end, we sat in his car and hugged and fell asleep together. (He did not push me to do anything more than the kissing, hugging and hand-holding, which I respecl.) It seemed like a beautiful dream. The following week at work he claimed not to rcmcm bcr much of that night, although he seemed to have a smirk on his face when he said it. Abby, anytime I hook up with someone, I tell myself, "Let's see what happens;' and I don't pursue it any further, hoping the guy will. (J'm shy when it comes to men.) Then nothing ever happens. I'll be 30 soon and I've been single ahnost 10 years. Should I pursue this further, or leave it alone and see what happens as I've always done? - SMITTEN IN 1\1ICHIGAN DEAR SMITIEN: \Vhether you pursue it further or leave it alone, NOTHING is going to happen with this fellow. When he told you be ''didn't remember" much about that night, he was conveying the message that you, too, should forget it. So take the hint and thank your lucky stars that the "beautiful dream" wasn't more X-rated than the one you described. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have a "friend" who is involved in a charitable organization that provides donated items to people in need via community giveaways. Over the years we have given various items to this person to use in these giveaways. However, we have noticed that some of the items we have given her are now showing up in her home, and clothing we donated is being worn


by her family members. Abby, we donated because we believed our things were going to rhosc in need. Arc we wrong to be upset that they have been kept for her family's use? We are considering no longer giving our donations to her. She is a wonderful person, and we're hesitant to confront her with our concerns, but we are left feeling our generosity was abused. How should we handle this.') DEAR - USEDAND ABUSED IN SOUTHERN ABBY CALIFORNIA DEAR USED: Unless this "wonderful person" has been paying the organization for your items, what she is doing could be considered theft or fraud and an abuse of your generosity. To prevent it from happening in d1e future, deliver the items directly to the organization and not to her. DEAR ABBY: \Vhen is it appropriate to ask a stepparent about a deceased parent's

will? I don't wantLO cause any hard feelings, but I think that at some point I have a right to know about my parent's will. - CATHYTNGEORGTA DEAR CATHY: Of course you have tlle right to know about tlle contents of your parent's will. I don't know how long your parent has been gone, but if it has been more than a month, contact his or her attorney and inquire.

Judge overturns town's fortunetelling ban ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - A federaljudge has struck down a central Louisiana ordinance banning fortunetelling, palm reading, astrology and similar activities in the city of Alexandria. U.S. District Judge Dee Drell's ruling Wednesday concurs with a magistrate's conclusion that the ordinance is W1constitutional. Rachel Adams is a fortuneteller who says she accepts donations but doesn't charge for her services. She sued the city after a police officer issued her a court sUlllmons in 2011 for violating the ordinance. A violation can result in daily penalties of up to $500. The city argued the business of fortunetelling is a fraud and inherently deceptive, but U.S.

EASLEY, S.C. (AP) - A funeral home in northwestern South Carolina will be offering what it calls the Starbucks experience to those needing comfort, or just a cup of coffee.

MEDFORD (AP)- A rural Eagle Point man said he will continue his decade-long legal battle with Oregon water managers over what they call illegal reservOirs. Gary Harrington said the water containers are merely ponds holding rain and snow nmoff from his property, and that he stores the water mainly for fire protection. The Mail Tribune reported Harrington plans to appeal his recent conviction on nine misdemeanor charges for filling his reservoirs with rain and snow nmoff that the state maintains is owned by the Medford Water Commission. Harrington disagrees with the state's interpretation of a 1925 state law granting the commission broad water rights to the Big Butte Creek Basin. He believes he's been singled out 8Illid other pond owners. ''When it comes to the point where a rural landowner can't catch rainwater that falls on his land to protect his property, it's gone too fai;" he said. "This should serve as a dire warning to all pond owners." Officials hope Harrington's July 25 sentencing ends what they consider a constant battle. The dispute has dragged through the state court system. - From wire reports

GLENDORA, Calif (AP)Investigators say a Southern California doctor saw enough from an X-ray to prescribe pain killers to an undercover cop but missed the tail showing it was an :image of a dog. Police and Los Angeles County deputies on Thursday raided the Glendora urgent care clinic of69-year-old Dr. Rolando Lodevico Atiga after a two-month investigation that included three undercover deputies posing as patients. One of the undercover deputies showed Atiga an X-ray to prove she needed pain killers. The scan ofher German shepherd clearly shows the dog's tail. The Los Angeles Times reports Atiga examined the X-ray and asked if she wanted Vicodin, oxycodone, Valium or Xanax. Glendora police Capt Timothy Staab says Atiga is well known among drug addicts and was considered the doctor to go to.

TALKEETNA, Alaska (AP) -The mayor of a sleepy Alaska town is feline fine. The part-Manx cat clawed his way onto the political scene ofTalkeetna,Alaska, through a write-in campaign shortly after he was born 15 years ago. KTUU-TV reported Friday that residents didn't like the mayoral candidates years ago, so they encouraged enough people to elect Stubbs as a write-in candidate. The town has nearly 900 residents. Although his position is honorary, Stubbs' popularity is real. His election earned him enough press to catapult the town at the base of MoW1t McKinley into a tourist destination. Residents say they're happy that the:ir stubby-tailed mayor is promoting tourism. The general store where Stubbs hangs out says it gets dozens of tourists a day asking for him.

Magistrate James Kirk concluded that fortW1etelling is free speech protected by the First Amendment. Adams told The Town Talk newspaper last year that she is a fifth-generation psychic.

Even though rainclouds threatened on Saturday afternoon, the 66th annual Elgin Stampede went off without a hitch this weekend. But it still lived up to its reputation of "only at the Elgin Stampede," when several bulls escaped Friday night, and on Sunday when an ornery bronco jumped the fence. The four-day event, which began with a kids night on Thursday, included the Mark Nichols Memorial Bull Ride Friday night as well as two days of PRCA rodeo action on Saturday and Sunday.

Union Countv takes 3rd at state By Casey Kellas

The Observer

After playing six games in the span ofthree days, the Union County Babe Ruth 13-yearold Babe Ruth all-star team finished in third place at the North Oregon state tournament. Union defeated The Dalles 11-10 in eight innings in the third-place game Sunday, wrapping up a 4-2 weekend. ''They played great," coach Mike Wisdom said. "They showed a lot of resiliency. They've improved tremendously from eal'lier in the year." Sunday's victory was the second win over The Dalles in the toumament, but it was also the closest for UC. After a scoreless first inning, Union put up two runs in the bottom of the second inning on an RBI by Garrett Vaughn and a pop up by Isaac Chamberlain that the first baseman couldn't get to. The Dalles answered with two runs of its own in the top of the third inning. Denzel Arellano brought home a run on a thro"ving error by UC, followed by an RBI single by Preston Klindt to tie it. But Union County regained the lead with a bases-loaded walk by Jake Workinger. A hit-by-pitch by Aaron Goss stretched the lead to 4-2. From there the lead changed hands three times, with The Dalles striking for three runs in the fourth and four more in the fifth to lead 9-4. ''They were pretty tired. Three double headers on three consecutive days is pretty tough on 13 year olds. Especially on the pitching," Wisdom said. Despite the fatigue factor, Union County hung around. An RBI double by Matthew Wisdom in the sixth inning, followed by a bases-loaded walk by Jon Gonzalez, cut the lead to 9-6. After a walk by Workinger scored a run, Goss' two-run single tied the game at nine and gave Union County new life. But right when things were looking up, The Dalles was able to scratch across the goahead run in the seventh on an RBI single by Cash Mathewson. "I was surprised," Coach Wisdom said of how close the game was."Especially because I know we can play better than that." With a loss looming in the bottom of the seventh, Union County came through on a game-tying, RBI single by the younger Wisdom to tie the game at 10 and send it to extra innings. After The Dalles failed to do anything in the top of the eighth, UC loaded the bases up in the bottom half before Elias Siltanen drew a walk to bring home Gonzalez as the winning run. "I like their patience a lot. You don't want to get over anxious.You want to make them throw strikes," Coach Wisdom said. Goss earned the win on the mound, striking out two in three innings of work in relief He also was two for four with two RBis. Wisdom was two for four with a run batted in. Aaron Maney drove in a pair of runs for The Dalles. The victory closed a wild weekend of action for UC. The only team the hosts lost to was Tualatin Hills' Mound Time, the eventual state champions. Union lost 13-1 on Friday and 13-0 Sunday in the play-in game for the title game. See Union I Page 3C

NEWYORK (AP) - NewYork Knicks point guard Jason Kidd was arrested on a drunken-driving charge after police said he crashed his SUV into a telephone pole in the Hamptons on Sunday, days after signing with the Knicks. Treated at a hospital for minor injuries after the crash, Kidd was arraigned on a misdemeanor driving-whileintoxicated charge and released without bail, Southampton Town police said. Kidd's agent didn't immediately respond to phone or email messages. The Knicks, who signed the 10-timeAII-Star in free agency this week, had no immediate comment.

UNION Continued from 1C But despite those two losses, Wisdom was pleased v.ith how the team played during the weekend "They did excellent. They finished No. 3 in the tournament. "The other two teams that placed here were special travel teams;' Wisdom said of champion Mound Time and runner-up Central Oregon. "They're not your regular Babe Ruth teams. They play year-round. "But we did great. Beat everybody else and played great." Mound Time and Central Oregon don't play in a district and automatically qualify for the state tournament, according to Wisdom.

Mound Time 13, Union 1 Union County's road to third place had a little bit of everything, starting with Friday's opener against Mound Time. The team from Tualatin Hills jumped right the board with three runs in the first and three more in the second.

After a one-out single by Siltanen, Wisdom hit an RBI single to cut the lead to 10-8. That led to a two-run triple by GDnzalez, who then came home to score on a wild pitch to put UC on top, 11-10. Baker got the tying run in scoring position in the bottom of the eighth but failed to bring it home to end the game. Ryan Adams, Wisdom and GDnzalez all had two hits for UC. Vaughn picked up the win in relie~ striking out one. Brad Bell started the game and pitched six innings, striking out

Sabotage mars Tour de France, not Wiggins FOIX, France (AP)- Crashes, falls, fractures - Bradley Wiggins has seen it all. Now add tacks and nails to list. Still, nothing can break his stranglehold on the Tour de France. On a day of sabotage in the Pyrenees, Wiggins had luck on Iris side. He avoided the chaos and spent another trouble-free stage as his Sky team controlled his main rivals to protect his yellow jersey. At least 30 riders were disrupted by tire punctures at the top of the final climb after tacks and small nails were tossed on the road. Tour officials asked police to investigate.

Defending champion Cadel Evans was caught in the havoc. He had to wait three times for assistance. He lost nearly two minutes at one point before teammates arrived and gave the former world champion a rear wheel. But Wiggins honored cycling etiquette by not attempting to capitalize on Evans' misfortune. He urged the peloton to slow down to allow Evans to return to the pack. Wiggins and Evans finished in the same time - 18 minutes, 15 seconds behind Luis Leon Sanchez of Spain, who won the 119-mile, 14th stage between Limoux and Foix.

This was the first day of racing in the Pyrenees, and Wiggins kept his overall lead of2:05 over Sky teammate Christopher Froome. Vincenzo Nibali ofltaly is third, 2:23 off the pace while Evans remains fourth, 3:19 behind. After crashing out of the race with a broken collarbone last year, Wiggins has been enjoying the perl'ect Tour so far with the help of a team dedicated to his quest for cycling's most revered prize. With only two big mountain stages remaining before the race ends in Paris next Sunday, and a long time trial where Wiggins is

expected to blow his rivals apart, the fonner Olympic track champion looks all but guaranteed to become the first Brit to win the Tour.Yet, he is well aware of the dangers that can arise anywhere. ''What can you do? It's something we can't control," Wiggins said, referring to the sabotage that could have led to a reshuffle of the standings. "There's nothing stopping more of that sort of stuff happening. It's sad. Those are the type of things we have to put up with as cyclists. I think people take that for granted sometimes, just how close they can

get to us. If that happened in a football stadiwn, or whereve1; you'd be arrested." From time to time, stray dogs or photograph-snapping fans get hit by speeding riders. On Friday, Wiggins was hit on the arm and received minor burns from a flare waved by a spectator. Three years ago, Oscar Freire and Julien Dean were hit by pellets from an air rifle. ''We're out there, quite vulnerable at times, ve1y close to the public on climbs;' Wiggins said. ''We're just the riders at the end of the day and we're there to be shot at, literally."

Beckham scores twice in 5-3 win over nmbers PORTLAND (AP)- David Beckham and Robbie Keane each scored two goals to lead the Los Angeles Galaxy over the Portland Timbers 5-3 Saturday night. Landon Donovan had a goal and an assist for the Galaxy (8-10-2), who handled the Timbers defense. Portland (5-9-4) struggled in its first game since coach John Spencer was fired and Gavin Wilkinson took over the team. Kris Boyd scored two goals for the Timbers, who lost for only the third time in 10 games atJeld-Wen Field this season. Wilkinson understood the firing of Spencer was likely going to have an effect on the team's play for a while.

After the game he told the players, "tiris one's on me!' "It's been a really crazy last week," said Kosuke Kimura, who joined the Timbers July 5 from Colorado. "Eve:rything happened so quick. But at the same time it's a professional business." The Timbers took a 1-0 lead in the third minute when Boyd scored off a cross from Kalif Alhassan. The Galaxy got their offense going in the 20th minute, when Beckham sent the ball into the back of the net. Beckhan1 gave the Galaxy a 2-1 lead when he sent a free kick past Portland keeper Troy Perkins in the 24th minute.

Donovan scored his seventh goal of the season on a penalty kick in the 26th minute and then passed to Keane for an easy goal in the 28th. "That's what happens when you give players ofthat ability that much time on the ball," Boyd said. Kimura cut the deficit to 4-2 when Galaxy keeper Josh Saunders bobbled a shot in the 35th minute. Keane scored again in the 64th minute to make it 5-2. Boyd added a goal in the 70th minute for Portland. The Galaxy are back in the playoff hunt and are in fifth place in the Western Conference.

Tlillberwolves submit offer sheet for Blazers' Batum MINNEAPOLIS (AP)- The Minnesota Timberwolves are about to find out just how serious the Portland Trail Blazers were when they said they would match any offer for restricted free agent forward Nicolas Batum. The Timberwolves submitted a four-year, $46 million offer sheet signed by Batum on Sunday, giving the Blazers three days to match the offer or let him leave without compensation. The deal has incentives that could push the total value over $50 nrillion, a hefty price for the 23-year-old swingman who has averaged 10.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in his first three seasons in the league. The Trail Blazers acknowledged that they did receive the offer sheet Sunday night and said they would have no further comment until a decision has been made. If Portland general manager Neil Olshey is to be believed, that decision was made a long time ago. As soon as the free agent market opened July 1, the Timberwolves set their sights on Batum, a versatile, 6-foot-8 shooter with an established reputation as a fine perimeter defender. Team president David Ka1m and coach Rick Adelman think Batum is a perfect fit for their more open offensive system and can grow

TheTimberwolves offered restricted free agent Nicolas Batum a four-year, $46 million offer sheet Sunday. alongside rising young stars Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.

'We're not in control of the situation," Ka1m said on Friday, allud-

ing to the Blazers' leverage with restricted free agency. "I'm more of a glass-half-full person. You hope for the best and prepare for fue worst. We're prepared for every option." One would be hard pressed to find an option that hasn't been considered while these two tearns have gone back and forth over the last week. The Wolves hosted Batum in the Twin Cities for a visit last week and he was impressed with what he heard. Agent Bouna Ndiaye said that his client was unhappy with how he was being used in Portland and would much prefer to play under Adelman and alongside Love and Rubio in Minnesota. They agreed to terms on an offer July 6, and spent tl1e last 10 days trying to negotiate a sign-and-trade deal ¥.-ith the Blazers to make it happen. But Olshey has been adamant that the Blazers would match any offer and were not interested in the assets the Wolves had to peddle in trade. The process had several stops and starts, with Wolves owner Glen Taylor saying on Thursday the team planned "to call their bluff" and submit the offer sheet after being unwilling to part with Derrick Williams or Nikola Pekovic to get the deal done. But league

rules forced the Wolves to wait until swingman Martell Webster, who was bought out on Friday, cleared waivers to create enough cap room for the deal to fit on the Wolves' books. Webster cleared and became an umestricted free agent on Sunday evening, clearing the way for the Wolves to submit the offer. Because the deal has been signed and submitted, the option of a sign-andtrade is no longer possible. It could be viewed as a win-win situation for the Timberwolves. Either they get a player they've long coveted and Kalm called "a missing piece," or Portland matches the offer and fue Wolves have foisted a considerably larger contract than the Blazers initially hoped to comnrit to Batum onto a division rival's salary sheet for the next four years. The only risk the Wolves incur is losing out on other free agents while the process plays out. The contr·act puts tl1e Wolves right at the cap, meaning they will have to wait until Portland announces a decision before they pursue other players like Boston big man Greg Stiemsma, Lakers power forward Jordan Hill and Rockets swingman Courtney Lee, who is considered Minnesota's Plan B if Portland matches the offer to Batum.

Johnson wins John Deere Classic, holds off Matteson in a playoff SILVIS, Ill. (AP)- Zach Johnson already was a member of the board of directors of the John Deere Classic. Now he has another title at the tournament: champion. Johnson won the Deere on Sunday with a birdie on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff. His 193-yard 6-iron approach from the bunker left of the 18th fairway ran up to less than a foot from the cup for an easy birdie, enabling him to knock off Troy Matteson, whose approach landed 43 feet from the pin. "I saw it bounce on the green and hoped it would kick left," Johnson said. "I couldn't see the golfball." Johnson couldn't miss hearing the gallery, many of them friends, as the ball crept within a foot of the hole. "I liked that crescendo from the crowd," said Jolmson, who is from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, about an hour from the Quad Cities. The kick-in birdie had seemed unlikely minutes earlier after Johnson followed Matteson into the water from the san1e bunker on the first playoffhole. Each settled for double-bogey 6, then went back to the 18th tee for another try. Johnson's bunkered his tee shot again, but this time, he played one of the better shots of a career that includes a 2007 Masters victory and eight other PGA Tour titles. "It's one of the best results," Johnson said. When Matteson was unable to sink his long birdie putt, Johnson tapped in to secure his second victory of the year, adding to the title he won at Colonial Country Club. While Johnson tried to downplay what winning would mean to him during the tournament's first three days, with the trophy in his grasp he admitted that it meant a great deal. "It just feels awesome,"Johnson said. "This tournament has meant so much to me and my family, from when they gave me exemptions to being a part of its board. "I don't really like making things a bigger deal than what they should be. It means a great deal now that I've done it." The duo had tied at 20-under 264 after Johnson closed with a 6-under 65 and Matteson had a 69. Matteson had Iris best finish since winning


the Open in 2009, and needed a topfive placing to qualifY for the British Open. So rather than drive to nearby Rockford for a Monday pro-am and then fly to Mississippi for the PGA Tour tournament, he hopped on fue charter that Deere has to ferry players across the Atlantic to the British Open. It will be his first appearance in the year's third major. "It's a heck of a way to play a qualifier, for four days," Matteson said. 'When I started this week I really didn't think about the British Open. "It's fun to play (Rockford) and tl1en go to lVIississippi." Matteson, playing with three-time defending champion Steve Stricker, led from the first round until a double-bogey on the 15th hole dropped him to 18-under, a stroke behind Johnson, who played a bogey-free, with birdies on tln·ee oflris last six holes keying Iris surge. But Matteson made up for his miscue wifu an eagle on the par-5 17th, sinking a 60-footer fuat drew a roar Johnson heard on the 18th green. "I didn't know who the roar· was for;" Johnson said. So Johnson two-putted for par and waited for Matteson, who matched him to force the playoff. Johnson climbed into second in the FedEx Cup standings, trailing only Tiger Woods, and is fifth in the Ryder Cup standings. "If it happens, great," Johnson said. "In golf, arguably in spo~ they're some of fue most fun and gut-wrenching tournaments you can play in. I love that." Stricker began the day with a chance for a fourth straight title, but played himself out of contention by driving into high grass on the 14th hole. He settled for bogey after a penalty drop, fuen bogeyed the next hole and finished four strokes back, tied for fifth ¥.rith Luke Guthrie. "It was fun trying to do i~" Stricker said of a potential four-peat. "It was fun, but I think it's the putter. This week it was hot and cold." Stricker was attempting to become the fifth player to win the sarne tournament four straight times.
