Quick action by Reilly McLean, right, saved Marie Anderson from suffering more extensive injuries after she was recently attacked by a dog while riding her bicycle at First Street and Grandy Avenue near Pioneer Park. The dog inflicted seven puncture wounds, most of which were on Marie's right arm and leg.

Like many heroes, Reilly McLean, 9, speaks like he did not have time to be afraid. Reilly was riding his bike recently with his friend and neighbor Marie Anderson, 10, at First Street and Grandy Avenue near Pioneer Park when he heard her scream. The boy turned around and was horrified by what he saw. A boxer-mix type ofdog was attacking Marie after jump­ ing upand knocking her offher bicycle. The canine was biting her right arm and leg. "I was freaked out...," Reilly said. "All I could think was 'I have got to get the dog away from her."' Moments later he did, coura­ geouslygrabbing thedog'scollar and pulling it away. It was only as Reilly was pulling the dog away that he thought he was in a perilous situation. "I realized he could turn around and bite me." Fortunately the dog did not harm him and almost miraculously Marie escaped life threatening or permanent injuries, although she does have some minor scarring. See Attack / Page 3A

The 103-acre Mud Fire, north of Enterprise and west of Highway 3, is expectedto be 90 percent contained by tonight. Smoke was reported early Tuesday m orning by aWa llowa County road crew employee. Oregon Department of Forestry responded and spotted the smoke on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. By 9:20 a.m. the Forest's Sled Springs helicopter located the fire and droppedofffourcrew members. In less than an hour an engine crew joined the helicopter crew and hiked in to the fire in the Mud Creek drainage south of Kuhn Ridge. Type III Incident Commander Na­ than Goodrich said the fire was started by lightning, possibly from a storm a week or two before the smoke was detected. Storms 10 days totw oweeks ago producedseveralfi re starts,but came with considerable rain keeping the spread of the initially discovered fires small. See Wildfire / Page8A

It says a lot about attack, which occurred his character."

CLARK Continued from page1A Clark's photography work in his latest film and describes the work "Hauntingly lovely, simultaneously intimate and expansive." "Pool Room," Clark's first film, is a 57-minute character study of a reclu­ sive man in his 20s who begins to come out of his shell. It was shot in Texas in June 2008. "I was interested in tell­ ing a story about someone who is always there but rarely seen, someone who is practically invisible," Clark told The Observer in 2010 when discussing "Pool Room." Clark is also being recognized by the film publication for the work he has done as a founder of the annual Eastern Oregon Film Festival in La Grande. The festival features show­ ings of many of the latest films made by Northwest artists. Clark describes film­ making as a rewarding but

exhaustive process. "The most challenging part of filmmaking for me are the more managerial tasks,producing the project; it just consumes your creative energy. Feature­ length projects, even small ones like I'm doing, are about four years of work through to the end. You' re always nurturing it in some way, it never really stops." Clark is currently begin­ ning work on a film named MMXIII which will serve as his creative thesisfor the master of fine arts degree he is earning. Clark said part of the film will involve exploring the intersections of cinema and art, art and life "... be­ cause honestly I just don' t think that these things should always be thought of as separate. They' re intrinsically connected." Clark's latest com­ pleted film, "Searching for Yellow" can be viewed on his web site, www. incproductions through Aug. 13. "Country Story" will available for viewing on Clark's website starting Aug. 13.

Wallowa County Library is celebrating 5,000 deliveries with its 'Deliver me a book" program."Deliver me a book" is an outreach program of the Wallowa County Library pro­ viding free services to Wallowa County residents who cannot access their local libraries.

Cleanup and hike planned for Wednesday

WILDFIRE Continued from page1A Goodrich said an "inverted cap" or mini-inversion kept the smoke from being easy to see Tuesday morning. "The smoke wasn't even above the rim," said Goodrich. Once temperatures rose and the inversion lifted the fire picked up intensity and got into heavy fuels and brush, said Goodrich. Crews began "flanking" the fire or working its edge, but pulled back to let the helicopter hit the head of the fire. Incident attack commander Gabe Hale ordered a state he­ licopter from Pendleton for assistance. More engines and and the North Zone hand crew was dispatched. By 1p.m.thefi re had grown to 15 acresand the Mud Creek drainagewas very smoky, said Goodrich.Thefireburned another 20 acres relatively quickly and a single engine air tanker ordered from Grangeville, Ida. flew in and dropped 12 loadsofretardant along ridge lines. "The SEAT worked out great," said Goodrich. "It painted a nice line of retardant down the ridge and kept it from crossing the 250 road". A Type 1 helicopter from John Day was also ordered to help with bucket drops to knock down the head of the fire. Additional hand crews from the Umatilla National Forest and contract crews Grayback and ASP were ordered. The Wallowa-Whitman North Zone turned the fire over to the Northeast Oregon East Type III overhead team by Wednes­ day morning. The difficulty of fighting the fire, said Goodrich, wasn't the size, which was kept to a little more than 100 acres, but steep terrain and lack of road access made suppression challenging. Safety in steep country with difficult visibility was a con­ cern so lookouts were stationed on McAlister Ridge who were able to communicate with crews in the bottom of Mud Creek, said Goodrich. Crews remained on the fire until 10 p.m. Tuesday night and by Wednesdaythe fi re behaviorhad quieted down allowing crews to complete a fire line by Thursday afternoon. Goodrich predicts the fire will be 90 percent contained by Friday night. A newly sold timber sale, an active cattle grazing allot­ ment, and cultural resources including historic corrals and rail road beds were being protected.Goodrich said wa terfrom stock ponds used to put out the fire would be replenished for livestock. In light of large fires with intense behavior all over the West this summer, Goodrich said the national direction of the Forest Service is to put out fires while they are small. Even fires in the wilderness, which are sometimes left alone and monitored when not threatening private land, are being put out immediately. The national fire budget is being tapped, and the Western Governor's Association has asked Congress to appropriate more funds with more than two more months of fire season aheadfortheWestern states.

THE Write a letter news@lagrandeobserver.corn

Editorial from The (Bend) Bulletin:

Caught up in the delayed action on the federal farm bill are four programs of particular importance this year. The four provided assistance to farm­ ers and ranchers hit by natural disaster, and all expired at the end of 2011. Now Sen. JeA'Merkley, D-Ore., has introduced a measure to replace the four, prompted in part by wildfires that have burned more than 750,000 acres in southeast Oregon. Two of the four covered loss of forage on federal and private land; a third indemnified ranchers for livestock losses and the fourth sent money to or­ chardists who lost trees or nursery stock in a disas­ ter. Together, the programs cost$187 million in 2011, a relatively small amount by government standards. If you' re a farmer or rancher on the receiving end of the disaster aid, however, the amounts don't seem so small, we suspect. In this year of drought through much of the nation combined with fires in the West, the money will be sorely missed, and not just in Oregon. That's why Merkley is pushing to get the Senate to act quickly and approve the bill by unanimous consent, an action that would move the measure to the U.S. House of Representatives quickly. Merkley clearly believes that separating the four from the larger farm bill improves their chance of passage. While he hopes to move it quickly through the Senate, he is prepared to take a more traditional,

lengthy approach if need be. Even if it does gain Senate approval this week, the bill's fate in the House is uncertain. All four programs were in the farm bill approved by the Senate last month but were removed in the version approved recently by the House Agriculture Com­ mittee, for one thing, and that bill is further mired in a fight over the food stamp program. Yet considered as a separate measure, the bill would provide assistance to farmers and ranchers in so much of the country that it may stand a chance. It's one thing to deny Oregon ranchers relief when your constituents all live in Georgia and a far differ­ ent matter when those same constituents are facing weather losses of their own. We hope so.

B Vln O Ul" U Just over a year ago, patrons of Sunflower Books received the news that Lani Schroeder had decided to sell the bookstore in orderto accomplish a full retirement. Since the bookstore has been an ongoing tradition in our com­ munity for over 30 years, it has been Lani's desire to sell the business to an individual who will carry on the book­ store's mission of encouraging literacy and the love of books by employing sales personnel who offer friendly and efficient customer service. Visitors to the bookstorecan attestto thepresent success of Lani's mission as they expe­ rienceprompt and courteous service in a cozy environment filled with an assortmentofbooks for allages. As the owner of a small business, Lani has shown commitment to our community by establishing a cultural center within her bookstore intended to support local entities like the public library, local schools, and Eastern Oregon University. Many of us have benefited from Lani's dedication to our community as she has used Sunflower Books as a venue to host events such

MARY BROWN DONNA RAIN BOTH as author readings and book signings, to advertiseand sellticketsfor m usi­ cal and drama performances, and to givesupport to various writing groups, poetry groups, and service groups. During the past year, several local individuals have each expressed a sincere desire to become the new owner of Sunflower Books, but their potential purchase offers have been limited by insufficient funding. However, the fact remains that Lani still wishes to retire whether or not the bookstore is sold. As a result, our community may see the closureofthisbeloved bookstore atthe end of December, and we would lose the only independent bookstore in our local area dedicated solely to selling new books. Despite society's use of online and digital book sales, we believe that an independent bookseller fulfills a vital role within a community by providing

personaland customized service in responsetolocalinterests. At this point, we would like to offer community members the opportunity to give input about how it might be possible to insure the continuation of Sunflower Books beyond Lani's retire­ ment. An obvious solution would be to find a benefactor willing to put forward funding which could facilitate a pur­ chase of the bookstore. But, in the ab­ sence of such a benefactor, we feel that other viable yet unexplored solutions may exist. If anyone in the community has sincere ideas to share,please send an e-mail to sunflowerbooks@frontier. corn, and put "Community Input" in the subject line. As we gather suggestions for Lani's considerationregarding a potential transfer of ownership, we will ac­ knowledge genuine ideas submitted in good faith to sustain the operation of Sunflower Books within our local community. Mary Brown is from Summervitte and DonrrrI Rainboth lives in Cove.

Don't rush to emulate Washin on on liquor sales Editorial from the Albany Democrat-Herald: Last week's Associated Press report on liquor prices near the Washington line confirms the idea that Oregon should not rush into following Washington's lead in that department. Washington state abandoned its liquor monopoly after the voters approveda ballotm easure to that effect lastfall.Privatestoresnow sell hard liquor, but the state col­

lects a hefty tax. In Oregon, the same change has been proposedfrom time to tim e, and interest in making the change rose again after the Washington election. But now, Oregon liquor stores near the state line find that their sales and profits are way up. Their only explanation is that Washington residents are coming to Oregon to load up on liquor because the prices in their home state have risen too

high because of the state taxes. Oregon is among the few remain­ ing stateswhere the state retainsa monopoly on the sale and distribu­ tion of hard liquor, which it sells to the public through state-contracted agents. The profits from this business go to the state, which shares them to some extent with counties and cities. Agentshave rebelled atsome of the regulations of the Oregon

Short Arctic night a challenge for Muslims during Ramadan ROVANIEMI, Finland iAPl — How do you observe dawn-to-dusk fasting when there is neither dawn nor

dusk? It's a question facing a small but growing number of Muslims celebrating the holy monthofRamadan on the northern tip of Europe, where the the sun barely dips below the horizon at this time of year. In Rovaniemi, a northern Finland town that straddles theArcticCircle at66 degrees north, the sun rises

around 3:20 a.m. and sets about 11:20pm. That means Muslims who observe Rama­ dan could be required to go without food or drink for 20 hours. In a few years, Ramadan will begin even closer to the summer solstice in late June, when the sun doesn' t set at all. "We have to use common sense," said Mahmoud Said, 27, who came to Finnish Laplandfrom Kenya three years ago. To Said, that means fol­

lowing the fasting hours of the nearest Muslim country: Turkey. "Itinvolves 14 or 15 hours of fasting which is okay, it' s not bad," said Said, who works for a non-governmen­ tal organization helping im­ migrants settle in the area. He estimates there are a little over 100 Muslims in Rovaniemi, mainly from Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan. There is no unanimity on how to deal with the issue, which is becoming more pressing as more Muslim

immigrants find their way to sparsel y inhabited areas near the Arctic. In Alaska, the Islamic Community Center of Anchorage, "after consulta­ tion with scholars," advises Muslims to follow the fast­ ing hours of Mecca, Islam's holiest city. The Dublin-based Euro­ pean Council for Fatwa and Research, however, said Mus­ lims need to follow the local sunrise and sunset, even up north. "The debate on how to do

this in the north has been on going on for a few years," said Omar Mustafa, the chairman of the Islamic Association of Sweden. 'We fast accord­ ing to the sun. As long as it is possible to tell dusk from dawn. This applies to 90 per­ cent of Sweden's Muslims." The few Muslims who live so far north that they are awash in 24-hour daylight should follow the daylight hours the closest city in Swe­ den where you can tell dawn from dusk, he said, noting thatit'spermitted to break

the fast for health reasons. Kaltouma Abakar and her extended family of nine relatives came to Finland from Sudan's Darfur region four years ago. She opts to observethe localLapland sunrise and sunset times before breaking the fast in her downtown Rovaniemi apartment. Kaltouma explains that she gets up early and works until the afternoon, then starts cooking the family' s iftarmeal around 5 p.m.

The temple closed in July 2011 for an extensive renovation of the grounds and the interior. The variegated marble that characterizedthe temple's exterior has been replaced with a white granite. A new gold-leafedstatue ofthe angel Moroni sits atop the temple's tallest spire. Inside, the temple interior is fully renovated with new finishes and furnishings. While the Church's 18,000-plus meet­ inghouses are open to all people who wish to attendreligious services there,temples are open only to faithful Latter-day Saints afterthey are formally dedicated. Latter-day Saint temples differ from the meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. Tem­ plesare considered "houses of the Lord" where Christ's teachings are reaffirmed through marriage, baptism, and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. Inside, members learn more about the pur­ pose of life and make covenants to serve Jesus Christ and their fellowman.

Now, for the first time, a man has come forward to claim he was that boy, and is threat­ ening to sue the university.

Allen Craig and Tony Cruz each had an RBI for the Cardinals, who are six back in the NL Central.

Jake Westbrook i9-8l pitched seven innings, lasting at least that longforthe third straight start.He allowed four runs — three earned — and seven hits with six strike­ outs. Jason Motte pitched the ninth for his 22nd save in 26 chances. Chris Capuano i10-6l gave up six runs and 11 hits in 4 1-3 innings.

NATIONALS 8, BREWERS 2 MILWAUKEE iAPl — Edwin Jackson pitched seven scoreless innings, Steve Lombardozzi hit a three-run triple and Washington sent Milwaukee to its seventh con­ secutive loss. The Nationals have won six consecutive games, matching a season high, and improved to 59-39. The last time a Washington-based team was 20 games over .500 was 1933, when the American League Senators finished 99-53 and lost the World Series in five games to the New York Giants.

Portland's Zagunis to lead U.S. at ceremony LONDON iAPl — The mother of fencing star Mariel Zagunis pushed up her flight by two days and franticall y packed her bags to make sure she gets to London in time. After all, it's not every day her daughter leads the U.S. team in the opening ceremony of the Olympics. So Cathy Zagunis threw her things together Thurs­ day at her home near Portland still overwhelmed with emotion a day after her daughter called with the news. The proud mom is intent on getting to Olympic Stadium to see the two­ time gold medalist serve as flag-bearer Friday night — and the U.S. Olympic Committee swiftly secured her ahard-to-getticketfor an event that could draw an upward of 1 billion viewers worldwide. "I'm speechless is the problem," Cathy Zagunis said by phone, fighting tears "I'm still in quite a bit of shock. It's an incredible hon­ or to represent your country, but to be the single person at the opening ceremony holding the American flag is an amazing thing — to be the flag-bearer is incredibly special. When she told me, I cried for an hour." For one night, Mariel Zagunis will turn her laser­ like fencing focus to another important task with the world watching. "I'm just going to focus on not tripping, not letting the flagtouch the ground and doing everything right," she said at a news conference Thursday. The start of the Olympics will be farm ore somber for the Israeli delegation. This is a time of remembrance — the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Olympics, when 11 Israeli athletesand coaches were killed in Munich by Palestinian gunmen. The IOC would not allow a moment of silence at the ceremony. NBC Sports broad­ caster Bob Costas, however, planned an on-air minute of silence of his own. All the while, Israeli swim coach Chanan Sterling tried to keephisathletesfocused, giventhe constantcoverage in London and beyond of thatterrible day 40 years

ago. "It's keeping them in our hearts, that's the main thing," Sterling said. "Every­ body knows about it, thinks aboutit. a We have a memorial also in Israel, there's a place in Tel Aviv that we gather

before the Olympics with all the people who are coming to the Olympics — coaches, athletes." Efrain Zinger, chief of the Israeli Olympic delega­ tion, said the team has no special plans fortheopening ceremony. The national Olympic committee will hold its own tribute Aug. 6 as it has during recent Summer

Olympics. "The Israeli delegation will march in the opening ceremony according to IOC rules," Zinger said.a We don' t have any intention to break any of their procedures or regulations. It'snottheplace to make a statement." But it will be a place for heavy hearts. "It's very hard for us," Sterling said as his team trained in the Olympic pool. "But those days there were so many things. One year later there was the war in Israel. Those days we were used to this kind of life, unfortunately. Today it's not like that." Through it all, he remains optimistic that any step toward bringing the world together — like an Olympics — will servea bettercause. a We are hoping for it every

day," he said. It was no easy thing for Zagunis to earn her spot at the front of the 530-member US. team — 269 women and 261 men. First, she made it as a finalist and then prevailed in five rounds of voting by team captains. Af­ ter four rounds, Zagunis and another unidentified athlete were tied. "To get that final vote, someone had to change their mind, and they changed their mind in my favor," she said. "Forthe decision to befor me, in my favor, it means a lot to me. I can't believe it' s going to be me." Few will question the spiritand resolve ofthe 27-year-old Zagunis, not to mention moxie. For the occasion, she has wrapped strands of her wavy blond hair with glitter. At the 2004 Athens Olym­ pics, Zagunis was a late replacement but went on to capture a stunning victory in sabre — the Americans' first fencing gold in 100 years. Then came more gold in Beijing four years later. Now in her third Olym­ pics, she welcomes her mo­ ment on the world stage and the attention it will bring to her sport. "This is going to be one of my best Olympic memories, definitely," she said.

ELGIN — With a little over two months to go, the committee for the Elgin Opera House Cenntennial gala is hustling to tie up the partydetailsforthelargest historic celebration Elgin has ever hosted. To help with public promo­ tion, committee member Rich Zinzer has designed and produced a beautiful, travel­ ing banner announcing "100 Years of Tradition." The 16-foot-long banner was first hung by commit­ tee members Kem Brainerd and Cindy Chandler at the entrance to the 66th annual Elgin Stampede PRCA rodeo. The banner will thereafter travel around town advertising the gala which is set for Saturday, Sept. 22. 'The committee wants to encourage people to buy their tickets for the event now because there are only a limited number of seats," said Brainerd.

The gala ticketscost$25 each and include admission to the entire day's events, including the centennial presentationinsidetheopera house, a tour of the opera house, a viewing of the historic DVD production by Rick Weatherspoon and Ty Bowen, and the cake recep­ tion outdoors. The tickets also include a seattothe7:30 p.m. per­ formance of"Fiddler on the Roof' directed by Denise Wheeler and produced by the Friends of the Opera House. The combination gala and Fiddler tickets may be purchased through the opera house ticket sales office at 541-663-6324.

t's t is time for high school reunions and many classes have set the datesfortheirgatherings. Early on, 1952 contacted me, so I turn to that year in their honor. Later I learned that the 1952 Class inWal­ lowa was celebrating their 60th year, also. Now I am invited to attend the Class of 1946 itwo years after my ownl. Of special im portance is the Class of 1942 imy husband George's class) as it meets for a wonderful 70 year reunion. There surely must be others that should be mentioned. Since I am committed to the one, I am hoping that there will be those who will pick up the others, especially theone of 70 years. Of course, even this column is dedicated to all high school students who remember, inserting their own special memories. •

The year was 1951 and it was September. A new batch of freshmen and re­ turning sophomores, juniors, and seniors were entering theoldLa Grande High School building for the last year. A new high school was to be built at K Ave. and Second Street, in La Grande, so the 195V1952 year was to be a nostalgic one for the stu­ dents, especially thegraduat­ ing class. On Aug. 18, 2012, this same group of graduates will meet from 1-9 p.m. at the Maridell Center at 1124 Washington Ave., the old Elks Lodge location in La Grande, for their 60th reunion. The plans are well underway, for the group meets every Wednesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. for lunch at the Flying J. Thel­ ma iAllenl Rhoton has been leading the planning com­ mittee, and has announced the reunion dates of Aug. 17 and 18 with an informal early evening gathering at the home of Rick and Wanda Davies, 1206 7th Street on Friday. Other members of the class will be assisting with registrat ion,music,decora­ tions, dinner and activities for a memorable reunion. Beforeallofthistakes place, though, it would be nice to look back on what was occurring in La Grande that very year and before the 130 high school seniors were graduatedand received their diplomas on Wednesday, May 28, 1952. Babies, they were, born in 1933 or '34. They were welcomed with Franklin D. Roosevelt's becoming the na­ tion's 32nd president. These were the Depression years and the President closed all U.S. banks. Congress passed New Deal social and economic measures in special session. In 1934, Dunham Wright began plans for the semi-cen­ tennial Union Pacific Rail­ road celebration. A newspa­ per adverti sement offered "... rugs washed, disinfected, and moths eliminated" at 1208 First St. A year later, boys' leather oxfords were available in brown or black with a broad toeorwing-tip for $2.49.

Growing uprapidly,our students were now six years old in 1940 and entering the first grade of elementary school, only tobe greeted the following year as second­ graders and told about the bombing of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7th in 1941 and World War II. Third-graders heard talk around the dinner tableabout relatives and friends in the upper grades who were volunteering for service in the Armed Forces. Younger high school students were inducted into the school's Victory Corps program. Bob Goss and I iDoryl may be the only ones in the Class of 1944, then juniors, who still survive in that group of 20. The Dutch Mill Bakery Shop closed permanently. Now it was 1944 and the group of 10-year-olds in the ifthgrade may have been f learning about the election of FDR for a fourth term as U.S. President. With the invasion of France, D-Day was being celebrated. It was my gradu­ ating class, shrunk by those having answered the call to the military, who still walked the graduation march to "Pomp and Circumstance." We wondered what our future would hold. Vice-President Henry S. Tru­ man became President of the U.S. upon the death of FDR. During that year, World War II came to an end with the surrenderingofGermany on May 7, 1945, and Japan on Aug. 14. While the graduating Class of 1952 were still seventh-graders and on the brink of becoming teenagers, I was already 20 years old. Norma Smith, also a 1944 graduate, introduced her friend George to her friend Dorothy "Dory" in Septem­ ber. They were married in December. Becoming teenagers in 1947, the eighth-graders may have learned that transis­ tors had been discovered, a minute electronic device, but could they have guessed the affect they would have on the size of hearing aids and radios as well as all of the electronic wonders oftoday.

''With his policy experience and deep knowledge of ranching, Colby is the right persontodrivethisprocess and to help us channel our resources to their highest and best use." The task force will work with the federal, state, and local governments, and the Oregon congressional del­ egation to channel resources and assistance to Oregon's livestock communities af­ fected by current wildfires and toimprove federal response to future fires. It will also enhance pub­ lic understanding of these crises by commissioning an economic study to exam­ ine the direct and indirect economicand societalcosts of wildfires in Oregon.

A bottle of Pepsi Next rests

amid cans often calorie sodas from PepsiCo Inc. Coke and Pepsi are chas­ ing after the sweet spot: a soda with no calories, no artificial sweeteners and no funny aftertaste.

Soda giants race for new sweet spot NEW YORK iAPl — Coke and Pepsi are chasing after the sweet spot: a soda with no calories, no artificial sweeteners and no funny aftertaste. The world's top soft drink companies hope that's the elusive trifecta that will silence health concerns about soda and reverse the decline in consumption of carbonated drinks. But such a formula could be years away. That's because the ingredi­ ent that makes soda taste good is also what packs on the pounds: high-fructose corn syrup. Artificial sweet­ eners like aspartame that are used in diet drinks don' t have any calories but are seen as processed and fake. Natural sweeteners that come from plants present the most promising alterna­ tive, but companies haven' t yet figured out how to mask their metallic aftertaste. Despite the complexities, soft drink makers push on in their search. "I can't say when it will be here, but it's in the reason­ able future," said Al Carey, who heads the beverage unit for the Americas at PepsiCo Inc., the world's No. 2 soda maker. There's good reason that soft drink makers are so eager to tweak their formu­ las. Once a beloved American treat, sodas are now being blamed for the nation's bulg­ ing waistlines — two-thirds of the country's adults are overweight or obese, accord­ ing to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That, coupled with the grow­ ing variety of flavored waters and sports drinks, has sent percapitasoda consumption down 17 percent to about 1.3 cans a day since its peak in 1998, according to Beverage Digest, an industry tracker.

Crownover, 39, is a chaplain at Texas Health Presbyterian, working primarily on the oncology floor or with psychiatric patients. One evening, justbeforehe was getting ready to go home, he received a callfrom labor and delivery. A woman was to be induced within an hour or so. What necessitatedthe callto Crownover was that her baby was dead. So Crownover called upon his ex­ perience— as achaplain,asafather of four, as a trail runner. Knowing he needed sustenance before such an un­ dertaking, he went to his office. He ate a can of ravioli, listened to NPR and rested. Then he went to the bedside of the woman dealing with the first stage of unspeakable sorrow. Later, telling me about that night, he says, "I know not to try to be tough and brave and macho. You can' t bull — your way through climb­ ing a mountain in the middle of the night, and you can't bull — your way through someone in a terrible situa­ tion." Crownover, who has been a hospital chaplainfor 13 years,started outas a die-hard road ii.e. nontraill runner. He kept an eye on his watch and his fingers crossed that nothing would go wrong during races. Then he started trail running — what he calls his spiritual awakening — and all that changed. ''When you run these ultras, some­ thing different is happening," he says. 'You' re stepping into this vulnerabil­ ity. You know something is going to go wrong. There's an element of faith that's very different. You' re playing with the 'let go and let God' aspect. You' re trusting you' ll get through it, just trusting ill be OK.

Matthew Crownover, 39, is an ultra-trail runner who runs several 50 and 100-mile races every year. His next race will be a 100-mile race in the mountains of New Mexico. ultramarathoning, and that's what I love about it." Running for hours on end, some­ times in darkness and often alone, opened up a world of learning, of com­ ing alive, he says. Instead of worrying what would happen to his 5K or 10K time, he started thinking about the basics: How would he navigate rush­ ing water? How could he run down a slopewithout thejostled dirtand stones knocking him to his knees? "All of that became like being a kid again, which is a deeply spiritual impulse," he says. "It's keeping that sense of curiosity and wonder. I have to pace myself, stay joyful, talk with friends, enjoy being out there. It' s kind of like how you get through life, right?" A "fairly traditional sense of calling"

led Crownover into the ministry, he tells me iafler first saying, "Like any good Presbyterian, I have a compli­ cated answer.") As he got older, he be­ came interested in people of all faiths, as well as those with no faith at all. A Dallas native, Crownover at­ tended Austin College and Perkins School of Theology, then ecumeni­ cal seminary in Cuba for a year. He served as a chaplain at Parkland and Baylor, Texas, hospitals before coming to Presbyterian five years ago. Dr. Kenneth Adams, medical direc­ tor of inpatient rehabilitation at Pres­ byterian, appreciatesCrownover's affmity for listening. The two only met a few months ago, but for several years Adams had read Crownover's pastoral notesin patients'folders. SeeRunning / Ebge 4B

Leading up to the Olym­ pic trials earlier this year, Oregon runner Max King slept in an altitude training tent almost every night. The tent fits over a mattress in a spare room of his house, next to his treadmill and his stock of running shoes. Altitude training — living, or atleastsleeping,forw eeks or months at high altitude, say8,000feet— trains the body to adapt to a relative lack of oxygen. True altitude training, such as moving to the mountains of Colorado for several weeks, can be simulated to some extent by using an altitude tent in which an athlete breathes airthat's been deprived of some oxygen. When people inhale fewer molecules of oxygen per breath, the body releases extra erythropoietin, or EPO, a hormone that stimulates the production of more red blood cells. Oxygen binds toredblood cellsto getto the muscles. Having more red blood cells allows more oxygen to reach the muscles, thus improving athletic performance. The effects can linger a few weeks after altitude training ends. For some time in the 1990s, using the tents was controversialbecause of the boost in EPO. EPO is the same hormone that some athletes have used as a performance-enhancing drug.

Many asked whether it even mattered. That controversy has generally passedand altitude tents are widely accepted in the United States.

A revolutionary concept In 1997, Drs. Ben Levine and JimStray-Gunderson of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine in Dallas published a landmark study that revolutionized how endurance athletes trained. Their study said living at high altitudes and travel­ ing daily to lower eleva­ tions for intense training could boost SeeTent / Page 2B

"Some of the very exciting isweetenersl we' re play­ ing with are really small in terms of production and planting, and they need to be nurtured," says Katie Bayne, president of Coca­ Cola's North American soda business.

The drinks have about half the calories ofregularSprite and Fanta i70 per can, instead of 140 or160,respectively).But the "Select" drinks fall short of the ideal because they have sugar. PepsiCo, based in Pur­ chase, N.Y., is also on the hunt for new drinks that use natural, no-calorie sweeten­ ers. In 2010, the company entered a $62 million, four­ year deal withfood flavor company Senomyx Inc. to developnatural sweeteners and "taste enhancers" that can intensify sweetness.

produced any products for commercial use. Dr Pepper Snapple Group, the nation's third-largest soda maker, alsois searching for the right combination. The company's line of fla­ vored sodas, such as Sunkist and A&W Root Beer, may make it easier to mask the tasteofnaturalsweeteners like stevia than with colas. At a beverage industry conferenceearlier thisyear, Dr Pepper's Chief Financial Oifice Marty Ellen said he thinks a "sweetener break­ through" is achievable in the next few years. Recreating the exact taste of extremely valuable brands such as Coke and Pepsi is a high-stakes game and companies don't want to rush any drinks to the market. But making a natural cola that doesn't have any calories isn't impossible. Smaller com­ panies such as Zevia, based in Culver City, Calif., already make such colas using stevia. Zevia is now sold in 10,500 locations — including Kroger and Whole Foods — up Rom just850 locations fouryears

sleep as well, is more likely to become dehydrated, and may have an inhibited appetite, she said, all of which can hurt performance. Another thing about tents is that they can't replicate the otheraspectsofactual high-altitude living, such as air pressure. "At true altitude you have a change in pressure. In tents, it's a change of oxygen," said Howe. The percent of oxygen in the air is similar — 20.9 percent— atevery altitude. What changes with altitude isthe airpressure.At8,000 or 10,000feetforexample, the airpressure islower, sometimesreferred to as thinner air. Bodies can't get and use oxygen as well in those conditions, Howe said. Manipulating the percent of oxygen in the air of a tent chamber simulates what a body can process at higher elevations, she said. "If you go to real altitude you get more physiological changes," said Bart Bowen, a coach and owner of Powered by Bowen, a sports perfor­ mance training facility.'You have factors like barometric pressure that you can't do

with this isimulated altitude) therapy. Barometric pressure changes the structure of your cells."

Altitude training Altitude training is not just for Olympic hopefuls and profess ional athletes; it's practiced by all kinds of endurance athletes. Brett Yost, a Central Oregon Community Col­ lege math teacher, has been sleeping in an altitude tent to acclimate his body for moun­ taineering challenges. Before he settled in Bend, Yost had lived and worked in the mountains of Colorado, spending weeks at a time above12,000 feetin eleva­ tion, essentially constantly altitude training. But then he lived for some time at sea level in Washing­ ton, during which time he climbed Mount Rainier with­ out any acclimation training. He experienced some uncom­ fortable effects of altitude. So this year, in preparation for another Rainier climb, he slept for six weeks in an altitudetent. He recently summited Rainier quickly and felt good doing it, he said.

Flying Fitness: Cathy Rigby's gives tips for soaring while nearing 60

waste." Again and again, the word spirituality comes up in conversa­ tion. The more he embraces it, and the more he finds joy and grati­ tude in what he does, the faster he gets as a runner. "I am saying that the scope of these races is such that you play with these themes that are so much like life," he says. "It' s not about avoiding suffering but redeeming it. That's what I like about ultras. They demand so much. You have to confront that." He speaks about using each ofthethree prongs ofhislife­ faith, family, running — to help make sense of the others. "IfIcan'tgettherestofm y life lined up first, this isn't going to work," he says about running. "My family schedule comes first. That' s important to me." To avoid running for hours on weekends and taking up family time, Crownover gets his runs in when he can. At least once a week, he leaves his car, phone, wallet and keys at work and runs the 15 miles home to Sunnyvale, Texas. The next morning, he runs back. His wife, Juliana, usually accompanies him on his ultras, meeting him at various spots along the trail with sustenance and moral support. His two sons and two daughters, ages 2 to 10, are usually at the events, too, playing with families of other runners. At 39, Crownover could conceiv­ ably keep running for decades. Still, he knows there will come a day when he can no longer run. "That's why I'm grateful for today," he says. "It's not about ignoring our limits or denying mortality. We embrace it. We cel­ ebrate that today we can run, and thatisa greatway tolive."

Continued from 1B "Sometimes he brings up issues we were unaware of," Adams says. One might be what a patient' s church family is doing, perhaps. Or maybe the patient is depressed or suicidal. 'You have to sit with a patient to getthatout." When Crownover is working, he stri ves for an 80-to-20ratioof listening to talking. So when he' s not on chaplain duty, it seems as if all he has held inside comes out, in an effortless eloquence that begs not to be interrupted. His thoughts — joy, trust, gratitude, "the whole becoming human thing" — drop into conver­ sation as easily as ice cubes into a refreshing glass of water. Maybe that's honed by solitary hours of running with only his heartbeat and footfall and rushing water for rhythm; who can say? "It keeps coming back to gratitude. It keeps coming back to paying attention to what I am called to be. I guess you could call it discernment. It's a great chance to be present." This thought is not his own, he says. 'This is the blessing my pa­ tients teach me. I'm plagiarizing them. My cancer patients have taught me they' re not grateful for having cancer, but for what it taught them. For me, this is a lab version of that. I'm really glad to get outhere.Lifegetssim ple. I want some water. I want to sit down fora minute." His job as a chaplain is not to cure, but to heal, he says. It's all about redemption: "That's what happens when we have a baby or run races. It's not that there's no suffering. It's that it doesn't go to

BAKER COUNTY COUGAR: Cougars can be found throughout Baker County, but hunters should target areas with high con­ centrations 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 num­ bers are good throughout the district. Try calling in early morning and late af­ ternoon. Remember to ask for permission before hunt­ ing on private property. SQUIRRELS: Ground squirrels are out and active throughout the valley. Hunters should find good numbers of squirrels when the weather cooperates; re­ member to ask permission before hunting on private property.

UNION COUNTY GROUND SQUIRRELS: Squirrels are up and active. Remember, always ask first to hunt on private land. COUGARS: Cougars are common inUnion County. Due to the mild winter, deer and elk can be found at higher elevations. Focus on game rich areas with long ridgelines or saddles that cats typically travel. Setting up downwind of a deer or elk killed by a cou­ gar can be productive. SeeHunting / Pbge 5C

VIEWING Report BAKER COUNTY Bald and golden eagles can be seen along open water areas of the Snake River and Brownlee Res­ ervoir. 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.


Waterfowl using the area include Canada goose, northern pintail, American wigeon, ring-necked duck, mallard, gadwall, cinna­ mon teal, green-winged teal and northern shoveler. Broods of ducklings and goslings can be seen in nearly any wetland. Most Canada goslings are nearly as big as the adults and have "colored up" to look like them, too. Shorebirds have included killdeer, black-necked stilt, SeeViewing / Pbge 5C

LaGrande hay farmer Stewart Sholund ships several tons of hay to dairies in Washington every summer. When he discovered a brood of barn owls in his stack he was able to move them to the other end — giving the birds time to fledge. The farmer is very pleased to have the birds around working his fields and it costs nothing.

Nest boxes are very attractive to barn owls. Numerous studies have shown that barn owls consume an incredible number of rodents — especially when raising young. Since rodents can be very harmful to crops, considering these birds in any farm plan can be of great benefit to the farmer.

Ton of antlers to be auctioned Saturday The Union/Wallowa County chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association is hold­ ing another antler auction Saturday at the Eagles Hot Lake RVParkeastof La Grande. The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a silent auction and should be concluded by 11 a.m. Nearly one ton of elk and deer ant­ lerswere picked up atseverallocations throughout the state and donated by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Proceeds from the sale will go towards wild­ life and hunting-related efforts in the area. Lastyear,over $11,000 was raised atthis event. Funded projects included a bighorn sheep trap and transplant effort on the Snake River, roosterpheasants for a special youthhunt on Ladd Marsh and hunter a) safety equipment for area youths. Over 300registered antlerbuyers have been contacted about this event and the Jim Ward photo general public is invited to participate as Scores of elk and deer antlers were picked up at several locations through­ well.

GRANDE RONDERIVER: trout, whitefish, bass Grande Ronde River flows are dropping steadily and clarity is recovering from recent rain events. With stable flows, trout and whitefish can be caught on a variety of gear including flies, spinners, and other light tackle. Water temperatures are also increasing and small­ mouth bass are turning on, especially in the lower nver. Bass can be caught on light spinners and jigs tipped with rubber grub tails. Fly fisherman can have banner days targeting bass on woolly buggers, other small streamers and surface poppers. IMNAHA RIVER: trout, whitefish Imnaha River flows con­ tinue to drop towards sum­ mer base flows. Should the pattern continue, fishing should remain good for trout and mountain white­ fish. Look for whitefish in deeper runs and holes, and target them using beaded nymphs. Bull trout are also present this time of year, and anglers are reminded to handle these fish care­ fully and immediately release them. JOHN DAY RIVER: bass and channel catfish A flash flood occurred on the upper John Day River on Sunday, July 15. This has muddied the river down to Clarno making fishing poor. The river should clear after a week and fishing will return to normal. Trout fishing is available on the North and Middle Forks of the John Day River which were not affected by the flash flood. JUBILEE LAKE: Fishing is good for rainbow trout. The lake has been stocked with legal and trophy-sized fish. MORGAN LAKE: trout, bullheads, bass Fishing for trout is fair to good. OLIVE LAKE: rainbow and kokanee W as stocked with 2,000 legal-sized rainbow trout and 500 trophies. Kokanee salmon are also available in the deeper parts of the lake.

OWLS Continued from1C One thing for sure, Shol­ und isn't a rocket scientist. But, that's not necessary to calculate the benefits raptors ihawks and owlsl can provide by reducing the damage to his alfalfa by rodents. He can see this first hand. Barn owls live in his silo and haystacks. He finds evidence of their kills below their nests. Simple studies r ­ d have shown that barn owls /~r will consume over 6,000 II rodentsjustto raise one brood of owls. Barn owls usu­ allyraisetwo broods ayear, so when you do the math, it's easy to figure how these birds can benefit the farm. Did I mention that Sholund isgood atmath? Craig Ely, a rancher near r LaGrande, fi gureshishay r a r crop is much larger since he r attractedapairofbarn owls to nest in his barn. "My field was riddled with gopher mounds," he says. Pocket gophers not only eat the roots of the plant, their mounds make the ground a very rough for the hay equip­ ment. 'The owls work the Jim Ward photo fields all summer and now With no other suitable nesting opportunities, barn owls will often nest in haystacks. This can be bad for the owls when the farmer needs to feed out I have very few gophers­ his hay or ship it. With a bit of care, the young can be moved to either a nearby nest box or a part of the stack that won't be used for awhile. These resulting in a larger, annual five owlets were the result of that. '


crop of hay," Ely adds. As their name implies, barn owlsare associated with barns. They roost in them and they hunt in and around them. However, many barns don't have proper structure for nesting — they have nar­ row beams and no platforms large enough for a nest. So, many landowners in the Grande Ronde Valley have put in barn owl boxes with incredible success. Still, some owls are forced to find other nesting oppor­ tunities. Many will nest in haystacks. All it takes is a crack large enough between the bales and a pair will set

up housekeeping. And that' s where they often get into trouble. Lynn Tompkins knows very well the situation with barn owls and haystacks. Tompkins operates the Blue Mountain Wildlife Rehabili­ tation Center in Pendleton. Along with many other wild critters, from skunks to bald eagles, 421 young barn owls were brought into the center last year. Most of the owlets were orphaned when hay farmers dug into their stacks while loading the hay onto trucks. Birdscame from asfar

away as the Yakima Valley and from farms around the Tri-cities and Hermiston areas. Ittakes agood dealof rodentstofeed 421owlets­ about 1600 a day. Rodents were purchased, at great expense, from commercial rodent farms and fed to the young owls by the center's assistants. The birds were hacked out at sites in South­ ern Washington when they w ere old enough tofly. Tompkins has persuaded many farmers to install owl boxesnear the stacks to lure the owls away. Some have

even put boxes on poles near the stacks. Oftentimes, small stacks of old hay will accu­ mulatearound the hay yard. When birds are discovered in the fresh hay, they can be moved to the old stuff if it isn't too far from the original nest. The young will beg for food during the night and the parents will find them at the new site. Stewart Sholund has tried this and it works well. He was forced to move a brood of five owlets out of his new stack. He put them in a part of the stack that he won' t need for awhile — giving the


many others, finding ways to encourage wildlife to their benefit. The barn owls can continue to prosper, and for the farmers, it can be down­ right good business.
