State Parks OKs Bandon land transfer BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

BANDON — The Oregon Parks Commission this week approved a land transfer of 280 acres of the Bandon State Natural Area to Bandon Biota for Mike Keiser to build the Bandon Links golf complex. Keiser owns Bandon Dunes Golf Resort and also owns Bandon Biota LLC, a separate company. The transfer still faces one big hurdle, since the land that would go to Bandon Biota was sold to the

Oregon Parks Department by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management on the condition that it remain open to public outdoor recreation. That condition must be removed before the property can be transferred, a process that could take several months, according to Chris Havel of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. But Tuesday’s vote was a huge step toward the transfer becoming reality. “We’re pleased with the outcome,” Keiser said this morning, adding that there’s a long ways to

go in the process. “The Bureau of Land Management has to sign off on the ultimate use. And we need approval from Coos County when we come up with a specific plan.” Steve Corey, an attorney working on the proposal for Keiser, has had preliminary discussions with BLM, Keiser said, adding “they seem very reasonable.” The Parks Commission approved the concept late last year, but delayed a final vote twice before finally approving it by a 4-2 margin.

To approve the transfer, the commission had to find that it provided overwhelming public benefit. In exchange for the 280 acres, a gorse-choked inland portion of the 878-acre property south of town, Bandon Biota would give the Parks Department 111 acres of oceanfront property adjacent to Bandon State National Area and 97 acres of wetlands property on the Coquille spit adjacent to Bullards Beach State Park. Bandon Biota also would provide $300,000 in cash to control gorse on state park property,

Reconfiguration proposals for CB schools Facilities report

INSIDE

COOS BAY — The Coos Bay School District is next in line for possible grade and building reconfigurations. The Coos Bay Facilities Outreach committee will present two reconfiguration options to the Coos Bay school board at an April 21 meeting. Enrollment has declined over the last 20 years, from its peak of 4,424 students in 1994 to its lowest today: around 3,079. And the district’s six schools

are aging. The oldest are Marshfield High and Harding Learning Center, both built in 1923. Harding’s most recent addition or renovation was in 1963; Marshfield’s was in 2001. Besides the schools, the district has three open buildings (Milner Crest and the transportation and maintenance buildings), two unused properties (Bunker Hill and Eastside), and four sections of

undeveloped land (Millicoma Marsh, ESD softball field, a tract adjacent to Walmart and a tract adjacent to the MHS stadium). During a workshop in January, committee members and local educators looked at what’s best for Coos Bay students and the buildings. The consensus was that seventh- and eighth-graders are best served when they’re together. Many didn’t think putting eighthgraders at Marshfield was the best idea, since they don’t have access to all the 9-12 resources and they don’t have a grade to partner

with. Some said transitions need to be reduced in the lower grades by creating K-7 or K-8 schools. Other groups suggested a K-5, 6-8, 9-12 model, or a K-6, 7-12 model. Several building reconfigurations came out of the discussion, but the majority said repurposing or expanding Millicoma and Sunset would best serve students. That means Madison and Blossom Gulch would either be demolished or converted for district or community use. Participants also suggested moving administrative offices to Bunker Hill or Madison.

Demand rises in medical fields

Taking a long look

BY THOMAS MORIARTY COOS BAY — As a longtime firefighter becomes the chief, the Coos Bay Fire Department is training a replacement to help deal with potentially toxic tasks — and preparing current hazmat personnel for the worst. Chief Mark Anderson, who was officially made chief in February, previously served as a member of the Region 15 Hazardous Materials Team, based out of the department’s Station 1 on Elrod Avenue. The promotion left the 16-member team short one hazardous materials technician — an unacceptable vacancy for a unit covering several hundred miles of the Oregon coast. “We’re a relatively small team compared to Portland, Tualatin, Salem,” Battalion Chief Dan Crutchfield said. “I don’t think a lot of people realize we even have a hazmat team.” A new volunteer will be sent to Tualatin Fire and Rescue for four weeks of training to be certified and to take Anderson’s place on the team. The Coos Bay team is one of 15 regional hazardous materials teams organized and funded by the state Fire Marshal’s office. Its area of responsibility ranges from the California border to just north of Reedsport. Most of the calls the Region 15 team gets are petroleum-related, he said. Tanker truck crashes and gas station spills are regular fodder for hazmat teams across the country.

$450,000 to help match a federal grant to acquire 11 acres at Whale Cove in Lincoln County and $2.5 million to purchase an as-yet unidentified new state park property. Keiser also would grant an easement through the Sheep Ranch property just north of Bandon Dunes for the state to relocate and align the Oregon Coast Trail in accordance with the parks department’s trail standards. Commissioners Brad Chalfant of Bend and Robin Risley of Cannon

SOUTH COAST — The Affordable Care Act has allowed for hundreds more in Coos County to have health insurance. And, doctors are having trouble keeping up with the demand. The issue has been discussed at various meetings recently. “I’ve been seeing about four new patients a day,” said Megan Holland, who has a practice at North Bend Medical Center and works at Southern Coos Hospital and Health Center in Bandon. Holland mentioned the issue at an open house for the new Bandon Community Health Center, which was able to recruit two new nurse practitioners. They’d likely need more, according to Linda Maxon, executive director for the center. Holland said she had to schedule patients “weeks and weeks out” because of the influx. “All areas are recruiting constantly,” Holland said. But, it’s not enough. There are about 100 physicians in the county,not including physicians assistants and nurse practitioners, said Phil Greenhill, chief executive officer of Western Oregon Advanced Health, the coordinated care organization for Coos and Curry counties. CCOs provide care for those who have the Oregon Health Plan or Medicaid. Greenhill said membership in the health program increased from 12,420 on Dec. 31 to 19,200 on March 31. According to the County Health Rankings website, the ratio of primary care physicians was 1,142-to-1 in 2014. This ratio wasn’t too far off the state’s ratio of 1,115-to-1, but it was still noticeable, according to the Community Health Assessment, which was released last year from the Coos County Public Health Department. “Provider shortages are felt throughout the county despite some of the data indicating otherwise,” the document said. A meeting scheduled later this month will address the issue of recruiting more health care workers, Paul Janke, president of Bay SEE MEDICAL | A8

Reedsport City Council OKs pot dispensary moratorium BY STEVE LINDSLEY The World

REDDSPORT — The Reedsport City Council on Monday voted to approve a moratorium on allowing new medical marijuana dispensaries. The moratorium carried an emergency clause. “The emergency here is, in essence, the fact that the state Legislature has given cities the opportunity, in the most recent session, to set some standards, even to establish a moratorium on these medical marijuana facilities, but we have to do so by May 1,” Mayor Keith Tymchuk told the council. The legislation gives cities and counties a chance to study the issue. The Legislature will revisit the moratorium in its

2015 session. Meanwhile, businesses across the state are applying with the state for licenses to open medical marijuana facilities, but none have been announced for Reedsport. Other than a moratorium, the Legislature also gave local government two other options: ■ Cities and counties can do nothing and allow the facilities. ■ Local officials can set their own guidelines of where and when the businesses could operate City Manager Jonathan Wright said many communities are taking a wait-and-see approach of what other communities are doing before deciding how to proceed.

“This is a a temporary moratorium,” he told the City Council. “It’s good for one year, however it can be removed by the council at any point in the moratorium. “At this point, because of the unknowns involved with the Medical Marijuana Act, many communities, including the county ... are invoking these temporary moratoriums just so they can get a little more time to feel out what is happening.” Tymchuk said there are more questions than answers and the city should use the one-year moratorium to gather more information. “I’ve had a couple of conversations just this afternoon,” Councilor Diane Essig said, “with folks that heavily depend on it, just to

COOS BAY POLICE DEPARTMENT

be able to get around. They’re perfectly happy to go into Coos Bay. They’re treated extremely well, according to them.” Tymchuk noted the moratorium would not affect current Oregon law on medical marijuana card holders. “Damn,” Councilor Frank Barth exclaimed after hearing the intricacies of the law. “I just don’t think there’s enough information, myself. If we have to move on something like this, I guess we have to. There’s too many ‘what ifs’ there for me.” “I wish the state had given us a little more time to consider,” Tymchuk said. “If we’re going to do something, we have to do it by May 1. The council unanimously approved the moratorium.

Recall author calls defeat ‘a great victory’ BY EMILY THORNTON The World

PORT ORFORD — An effort to recall Mayor Jim Auborn may have failed by a narrow margin, but its instigator still considered it a win. “It’s a great victory

regardless of the final tally,” said Brett Webb, a commercial fisherman and one of five port commissioners. He filed a petition to recall Auborn earlier this year. He said he would have liked to see the mayor recalled, but had no comment

on whether he would consider doing another petition. Auborn was hopeful of the preliminary results — a narrow 215-204 defeat. “They’re not really final yet,” Auborn said. “I guess you could say I really did survive the recall, but it still

could be challenged. “I’m glad enough people had the confidence in me to reject the recall.” Still, he said he was “upset it was so close” and that he would “remember to listen to the concern of those who voted against” him. “I think there’s a lot of anger in the community,” Auborn said. “I’m going to try to accommodate people where I can and not get in arguments with people. Unfortunately, I (public officials) can’t sue people for slander.” Webb managed to gather 86 signatures on a petition to recall Auborn, who he said was trying to force the creation of a marine sanctuary in the region. Auborn said he just wanted to set up an exploratory committee to see if it was feasible to have Cape Blanco National Marine Sanctuary in the area, but decided against it after the city council refused to support it. There are supporters of Auborn, who’s serving his third term. “He hasn’t done anything wrong,” said Dianne Schofield, city council member and another port commissioner.

No such thing as a free ride Our view The Oregon International Port of Coos Bay’s free train rides were a one-time experience last year — but wait for the railroad’s centennial in 2016.

What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at letters@theworldlink.com.

Remember the free train rides offered one Saturday last August? The Oregon International Port of Coos Bay was giving the rides to celebrate completion of a major phase of the $31 million Coos Bay Rail Line Rehabilitation project, marking restoration of freight rail service between Coquille and Eugene. The one-day event was hugely popular. The four short trips throughout the day between the Coos Bay and North Bend boardwalks were packed and riders had

to be turned away. Bet you’re waiting for your turn this year, aren’t you? Well, you can forget it. That was a one-time opportunity. According to the Port’s chief commercial officer Martin Callery, the event was specially budgeted for and cost the Port about $12,000, including securing a passenger car and operator. The Port had no intention of staging another series of runs in subsequent years. We’re disappointed. We wrote last year that we

thought the limited run would be a great thing for locals and tourists alike. The short rail run between the two boardwalks linked the neighboring cities in a special way and showed off our bay front from a perspective you can’t get by motoring along U.S. Highway 101. But we understand, too. The Coos Bay Rail was never intended to accommodate passenger travel. The whole point of resurrecting the line was to restore freight service. That in itself has been a monumental task, with still

more work to be done. And that labor was recognized recently by the trade journal Railway Age, naming Coos Bay Rail Link as its 2014 Short Line of the Year. Still, we’d hoped that those who missed last year’s opportunity might’ve gotten a chance to ride the rail this year. But Callery suggested we all be patient. There may very well be something special coming on the line’s 100th anniversary in 2016.

Gambling and government Did you fill out a March Madness bracket this year? In many states, if you put money in a pool, that’s illegal! The NCAA website warns, “Fans should enjoy ... filling out a bracket just for the fun of it, not ... the amount of money they could possibly win.” Give me a break. Americans bet more money on March Madness this year than on the Super Bowl. Politicians can’t quite make up their minds about gambling: They approve certain casinos and promote state lotteries but crack down on sports bets and some charity poker games. It seems that government dislikes gambling, unless government gets to be the house. Increasingly, government is the house. After locking up bookies for “dangerous and criminal” activities, like running “numbers rackets,” most states now offer much worse odds in state lotteries. Then they take money from taxpayers to advertise their scams. Some states even run commercials that mock hard work, pushing the benefits of a long-shot jackpot. Poor people become poorer, because they buy most of the lottery tickets. Then JOHN politicians brag how STOSSEL money from the lottery helps the poor. It’s disColumnist gusting hypocrisy. Politicians award casino permits to politically connected businessmen who make most of their money from slot machines that offer miserable odds. But when “unapproved” websites offered Internet poker, at far better odds, the federal government charged the operators with “money laundering” and shut the sites down. Recently, three states noticed that people like Internet gambling so much that millions of dollars leave America and go to overseas websites. So New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada begged federal officials for permission to legalize some Internet betting and got it. Now other states may do it, too. A group called the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling wants to prevent legalization. It warns: “gambling will be available in every home, every bedroom, every dorm room,on every phone,tablet and computer!” It’s revealing that its ads are funded by casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.He doesn’t mind you gambling, obviously. He just wants you to go to casinos, like those he happens to own. Government, just as hypocritical, invites people to buy lottery tickets while simultaneously stamping out rival forms of gambling and warning us of the damage gambling can do. And, yes, gambling hurts some people. Some wreck their lives and gamble away their life savings. How many gamblers? That’s not clear. Maybe 2 percent, say critics of gambling. But Patrick Basham of the Cato Institute argues that gambling is often a symptom rather than a cause. “It’s very hard to disentangle all the things that are going wrong in that person’s life,” perhaps depression and other psychological problems. “The people who get into these problems tend to have difficulties.” I love gambling.But on my TV show,I gave Basham a hard time for arguing that gambling is “healthy.” Fun, maybe, but I told him I don’t think it’s healthy. "You’re wrong,” he answered. “It’s good for our emotional health ... physical health ... It provides social interaction, which has all kinds of physiological benefits. Older people who gamble have less alcoholism, less depression than older people who do not gamble.” I can’t vouch for the statistics. You can read his book, “Gambling: A Healthy Bet,” and judge for yourself. What I do know, and hate, is that with gambling, as with so many other activities, government tells us it knows best, and then makes matters worse by banning things. The bans drive betting into the hands of criminals. Politicians turn small problems into big ones.

Letters to the Editor Supports Kudlac for the bench It is too easy to vote for the incumbent! How many times have you looked at your ballot, particularly when voting for judges,and just go down the ballot and vote for the incumbent? In the upcoming May election, as campaign manager for Shala McKenzie Kudlac, who is running for judge of the 15th Judicial District Position No. 6, serving both Coos and Curry counties, I urge you to take the time to learn what she is about and what she stands for.Read her brochures and hear what she has to say. Some may say that Shala is too young. Age really has nothing to do with this position. Young people of today, given good education, experience, a good grasp of technology, integrity and guts, will do great in any path they choose. Shala is from the Oregon’s South Coast, raised in Curry County. She is a graduate of the University of Oregon and Willamette University College of Law. She has been practicing law in Coos and Curry counties since 2005. She is one of our few young people who have returned to us. How many times do we hear others say, “Our young never come back here to live because there is nothing here for them.” Shala has come home. Shala will be a good fit for our judicial system because of her history and longevity in both Coos and Curry counties. She understands the people here in the area. Vote Shala McKenzie Kudlac! Janet M. Rubin North Bend

Beaman deserves your vote I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Beaman while she was in private practice. Her practice emphasized criminal defense and family law, two areas that inspire strong emotions for those involved. I had the privilege of observing an attorney who treated her clients with compassion and respect; who listened with an unbiased ear and represented her clients with the knowledge and diligence they deserved. These are all admirable qualities for anyone to possess but even more so for a judge. After several years in private

practice, including substantial courtroom experience, Ms. Beaman was elected Circuit Court Judge in 2007. Over the years, she has presided over numerous trials and court proceedings in both Coos and Curry counties. As a judge, one is subject to public scrutiny and criticism, yet Ms. Beaman has demonstrated that she has the courage and integrity to continue to apply the law fairly and impartially, and not be swayed by popular opinion or outside influences. Ms. Beaman is an outspoken proponent of youth, particularly those who lack the support or resources necessary to stand up to the unique challenges that present themselves in today's world. She goes above and beyond by listening and providing guidance to these young people and their families. Ms. Beaman is a member of the Juvenile Engagement and Leadership Institute Reasonable Efforts Group. Ms. Beaman and her family are active in the community and the schools, and they provide tremendous support to numerous youth and family activities. Ms. Beaman is a member of several organizations, from the Curry County Local Public Safety Coordinating Council to parentteacher organizations and booster clubs, as well as several youth sports clubs. Ms. Beaman's combined experience and qualifications make her the best candidate for the 15th Judicial District, Position 6. Vote for Cynthia L. Beaman. Kip Freels Brookings

Elect Freeman commissioner I am fourth generation from Douglas County, having been raised in Days Creek and graduating from South Umpqua High School. Over the years I have watched Tim Freeman work hard operating his business, at the Roseburg City Council and as a state representative, and have been very impressed with his knowledge of the local issues. Tim not only has a wide range of experience, but also has built relationships over the years and has a wide range of contacts at all levels of government. As a commissioner in Jackson County, I understand how very local county government is. It is important for a commissioner to

have a good network of relationships. Beyond that however, it is important for a commissioner to have experience. Tim Freeman not only understands the problems facing Southern Oregon, but more importantly, he has experience in creating solutions for these problems. We don't need more people to point fingers and say what is wrong — we need leaders who are ready to work hard from day one to help Southern Oregon forward. Tim Freeman is this kind of leader. I wholeheartedly support him in his bid for Douglas County Commissioner. John Rachor Central Point

LNG plant on shaky ground According to the article in the paper about the Coos Bay library sinking because it is built on fill and “the fact that it is not set on firm ground makes it questionable whether or not it can hold up when the area experiences an earthquake/tsunami event.” And setting that concern against the LNG proponents proposal to build-up the ground with fill material and then set the LNG facility on top to protect it from geological events, would make me laugh if it weren’t such deadly, grimly, seriously flawed reasoning. I would bet my savings account that the builders of the nuclear plant in Japan guaranteed it safely structured to withstand earthquake/tsunami events. Please write your representatives, attend meetings, ask questions, do what you can. Remember that evil flourishes when good people remain silent. Nan Hammons North Bend

LNG promises are a gamble Gamblers? Federal and state laws often are designed like a game of chance. Not all the collateral consequences are included. Oregon senators say they want more jobs in Coos Bay-North Bend, and a LNG export facility would provide hundreds, if not thousands,of jobs for at least 20 to 30 years. The Oregon senators may be gambling that the subduction zone superquake will not happen

near Coos Bay for the next 30 years. Geologists tell us we are overdue for a 9.0 or higher. The regional airport at Coos Bay is a mile from the proposed facility, not to mention schools, homes and U.S. Highway 101. Maybe the senators missed the news about recently increasing swarms of quakes in north and south California and Washington, and yesterday’s 8.2 off the coast of Chile with tsunami warnings. Maybe they missed the news about the LNG storage facility of 2.4 BCF in a rural community on the Oregon/Washington border. Nearby residents reported a “mushroom cloud’’ explosion that evacuated hundreds. That huge plant was operated by 14 workers who, thankfully, have survived their injuries so far. The proposed Jordan Cove LNG export facility,busily gathering federal and state permits, is expected to export up to 1 BCF of LNG a day from a proposed 235mile pipeline crossing nearly 400 streams and rivers, tearing up publicly owned old growth forests, using federal eminent domain laws to confiscate private homes and property to provide corporate investors with expected profits. The Oregon senators say the hundreds of high-wage jobs will bring economic security to Coos Bay for 30 years. That’s if the LNG boom does not turn to bust. It has happened many times before. Since the 1850s, Oregon and other states have witnessed the gold rush, the salmon slaughter, the loss of old growth forests, the extraction of anything to make a buck. Most gold diggers went home bankrupt but some local timber barons gave back to the community. Maybe we can gamble that Jordan Cove investors will give back to the community and not just dupe us.

State Man is patient as independent woman struggles with intimacy DEAR ABBY: I’m a 27year-old woman who has never had a boyfriend or been kissed. I was never interested in romance or having a significant other. I felt strong being independent and taking care of myself. Now that I have a degree, a career and a house, I feel ready to try DEAR to let a man into my life. I met a really nice guy a month ago. “Brian� and I have gone out several times and have a lot in JEANNE ommon. PHILLIPS cHe’s a gentleman, and he says he’s willing to wait for me. I have been having a difficult time letting myself be physical with him. Even hugging is uncomfortable for me. I know it’s because I have been a shy loner my whole life and I’m unaccustomed to being close to people. Even though Brian says he’ll be patient, I can sense his frustration. Physical closeness should come easily if you like and are attracted to someone. I feel abnormal. I don’t know if I’ll be this way forever or get more comfortable the more I know him. I’m afraid Brian — and most men — won’t be willing to wait that long. I’m afraid if I don’t move faster I’ll lose a great guy and never get another chance. What do you think? — BLOCKED IN BOISE DEAR BLOCKED: Being intimate with someone because you’re afraid you’ll lose him or it will be your last chance is the wrong reason. I think that the sooner you talk with a licensed therapist about your lifelong shyness and discomfort, the quicker you can understand the reasons for it and overcome it. Your doctor should be able to refer you to someone. If Brian is the right man for you, he will stand by you. But if he doesn’t, you’ll be able to more easily relate to someone else. DEAR ABBY: I am planning my wedding in the fall. My fiance and I are paying for the wedding and reception. I have worked at my job for a year, and I haven’t always been treated well by a few coworkers. I am reluctant to invite these people because I’m worried about the repercussions if I do. I know they will judge every aspect because they did it to another co-worker. I like a few of the people I work with, but I don’t know if I can invite only them. What do I do? — WEDDING PLANNER IN OMAHA DEAR WEDDING PLANNER: What you do is invite only those people you truly want to attend your wedding. It’s not necessary to apologize for it or to explain why. If you are put on the spot and feel you must give a reason, say that your guest list is limited because of financial constraints. It’s far more tactful than saying they are being excluded because they are rude, awful people, and you don’t want them anywhere near you on such an important occasion. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Judge says flashing lights is free speech MEDFORD (AP) — A Jackson County judge says flashing your headlights to warn other drivers about nearby law enforcement is protected as free speech under the Oregon Constitution. Jackson County Justice Court judge Joe Charter ruled March 26 that a driver on Highway 140 didn’t break any law last September when he used his high-beams to warn other driver about a sheriff’s deputy in the car behind. The Mail Tribune reports Christopher Hill, of Klamath Falls, was driving a commercial truck near White City while a Jackson County sheriff’s deputy drove behind him. Another deputy spotted Hill flashing his high-beams and radioed the deputy behind Hill, who pulled him over. Hill was cited for unlawfully using his headlights but contested the ticket, saying free speech protected his actions.

Airline pullout disrupts Klamath Falls travel KLAMATH FALLS (AP) —

The decision by SkyWest Airlines to leave Crater LakeKlamath Regional Airport has travelers scrambling to reschedule flights. Flights to and from Klamath Falls will end June 5, about a month before Kellee Stabler and her boyfriend had a ticket to visit family in the Midwest. Instead of leaving from Klamath Falls, the couple now plans to drive 80 miles to Medford for a flight out of that airport to San Francisco. Stabler tells the Klamath Falls Herald and News she paid about $150 extra to reschedule the flights, so her ticket from Medford to San Francisco is now more expensive than the flight from San Francisco to Chicago.

Teen arrested after 100 mph chase SALEM (AP) — State police arrested an 18-yearold Portland man accused of eluding a trooper at speeds of more than 100 mph near Salem. A police spokesman says a

STATE D I G E S T trooper sought to stop Oliver Brassard late Tuesday after the young man was clocked driving 95 mph on Interstate 5 and was later following another vehicle too closely. Police say Brassard moved his Acura to the center lane and accelerated to more than 120 miles per hour in an attempt to avoid the trooper. Brassard was charged with felony attempt to elude, and also got a ticket for speeding in excess of 100 mph.

Task force on GMO agriculture to meet PORTLAND (AP) — Oregon’s task force on genetically engineered agriculture has been formed and will meet for the first time this week. The task force, convened by Gov. John Kitzhaber, will examine conflicts between growers of genetically-engineered products and other producers, including organic growers.

All the land is in Crook County, in and around Prineville, and is used for crops including hay, grains and carrot seeds, as well as pasture for cattle. Following a dry spell in Central Oregon from November through January, Gov. John Kitzhaber declared a drought emergency for the county.

“The drought (declaration) gives you quite a bit of flexibility,� he said. Although the declaration will soften the impact, the drought will hit growers and ranchers, particularly those upstream of Ochoco Reservoir, which is fed by Mill and Ochoco creeks, and upstream of Prineville Reservoir, which is along the Crooked River. “That is where we are really going to see the effects of the drought,� Giffin said. The growers and ranchers upstream of the reservoirs rely on snowmelt and rainfall for their water, and this year there simply isn’t much snow. Jim Wood, 55, owner of the Aspen Valley Ranch in Post, said the governor’s drought declaration will offer some relief, and he is thankful county leaders called for it, but it will still be a tough summer. “It is going to help,� he said, “but it is not going to make water appear.�

PERTH, Australia (AP) — An Australian aircraft hunting for the missing Malaysian jet picked up a new possible underwater signal on Thursday in the same area search crews detected sounds earlier in the week that were consistent with an aircraft’s black boxes. The Australian navy P-3 Orion, which has been dropping sound-locating buoys into the water near where the original sounds were heard, picked up a “possible signal” that may be from a manmade source, said Angus Houston, who is coordinating the search off Australia’s west coast.

Aide among few with access to kiss tape MONROE, La. (AP) — A top aide to a Louisiana congressman videotaped kissing a married woman who is not his wife was one of the few people with access to the leaked security footage that exposed the dalliance. Pressure has mounted on Republican Vance McAllister since the Monday disclosure of grainy video footage from his district headquarters. McAllister, a conservative who highlights his Christian faith and family devotion, has found few defenders among the Republican establishment he beat to win the job in a surprise special election result last year.

Investigation begins in photographer killing KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan central government authorities on Wednesday began questioning the police commander who killed an Associated Press photographer and wounded an AP reporter, a day after he was transferred by helicopter to the capital — a rare case in which an Afghan officer or soldier who shot a foreigner was captured alive. Local security officials who spoke with the suspect after he was first detained said he seemed a calm, pious man who may have come under the influence of Islamic extremists calling for vengeance against foreigners over drone strikes. Witness and official accounts so far have suggested the shooting was not planned.

Gunmen attack NATO truck in Pakistan PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani official says gunmen in the country’s northwest have opened fire on a truck carrying gasoline for NATO forces based in Afghanistan, killing a driver and wounding another. Manzoor Khan says Thursday’s attack took place in the tribal Jamrud region when the truck was heading to neighboring Afghanistan. No one has claimed responsibility for the shooting but authorities have blamed Pakistani militant groups for previous such attacks.

Gay marriage’s win streak tested in court DENVER (AP) — With its recent string of high-profile victories in federal court, the gay marriage movement is hoping to build momentum to help it attain its long-held goal: a Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. But first it must convince federal appellate courts of the merits of the case. That quest begins Thursday in Denver and continues next week when a three-judge panel will hear arguments on whether they should uphold separate rulings by two federal judges that threw out same-sex marriage bans in Utah and Oklahoma.

tigate, summoning Abu Sahmein and al-Tajouri for questioning. The prosecutor is aiming to determine if any crime took place, whether blackmail by the militiaman or a violation of morals laws by Abu Sahmein, an Islamist-leaning politician. Ultimately what the video highlighted, however, was how weak even Libya’s most prominent politicians are in the face of the militias that have become both the enforcers of the law and the fuel of lawlessness in the country since the 2011 ouster and death of Moammar Gadhafi. From the start,the fledgling government did little to follow through on a program to disarm and demobilize the militias. Instead, officials tried to buy them off, spending billions of dollars to enlist the fighters in various security tasks, without ever winning their loyalty — or building a state for them to be loyal to.

The highway patrol said it is looking for 26-year-old Robert Corchado, who has been arrested eight times since 2000, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement records. Troopers said he was the driver of the Durango, but wouldn’t say how they established that. Troopers said Corchado may be trying to leave the area, and troopers and deputies headed to Orlando International Airport to look for him.

Portland said. “Properties that are important enough to pursue right now can’t wait for the exchange to reach fruition.” An earlier version of the proposal had the $2.5 million from Bandon Biota going for the Parks Department to buy a portion of a ranch in eastern Oregon, but that purchase fell through this year. The transfer could provide a big boost for the state parks, Graves said. “We’re bringing more oceanfront property into the

system, and if the federal interests are satisfied successfully, we’ll also secure funding to acquire another significant property in the future,” he said. “Taken as a whole, the commission decided the package represents an overwhelming public benefit to the state park system.” Keiser’s goal for the property is for up to a 36-hole golf complex designed by Gil Hanse, the architect for the Olympic golf course in Brazil.

Local residents would pay a low rate, while golfers from outside the area would pay the same rate as guests at Bandon Dunes. Keiser envisions Bandon Links to also be a training ground for new caddies who don’t have the opportunity for training at the resort. Golfers who serve as mentors for new caddies would pay an even cheaper rate to play at Bandon Links. He also said the non-golfing public would benefit because the project would

open a new access to the New River, which is located between the proposed golf complex and the beach. Actual work on the project could be up to 18 months away, even with quick approval by BLM. “We would still need an appropriate time to remove all the gorse from the property and come up with a routing plan,” Keiser said. “Gil Hanse has walked the property, but we won’t know until the gorse is removed. It will be 18 or 27 or 36 holes,

depending on what Gil Hanse uncovers.” Bandon Biota first proposed a land transfer in 2010. According to the Parks Department’s report using 2014 property appraisals, Bandon Biota would receive property worth $1.05 million and the state would receive property and money totaling about $3.87 million. “I’m very gratified that after a long time, it came to a good end,” Keiser said. “It’s good for the recreationalist on the South Coast.”

an increase of patients who can’t see their primary care physician in a timely manner, said Lena Hawtin, clinic supervisor. Hawtin said more patients were using their services for things such as sexually transmitted diseases or other urgent conditions. She said she’d heard of patients having to wait up to three months to get an appointment. Such a delay in care was detrimental to treatment, she said. “The clinics in the county are having difficulty recruiting providers,” Hawtin said. Not enough providers for the influx of insured patients was the main reason behind the lag in treatment, Hawtin said. She said the problem was nationwide. “I don’t know that there’s enough providers out there

(anywhere),” Hawtin said. The health department conducted one survey during February and March to determine whether patients had health insurance or an assigned provider. Out of 147 who responded, about 38 percent were on the Oregon Health Plan, 40 percent weren’t insured and 22 percent had other insurance. About 44 percent of those with insurance said they had an assigned provider. Hawtin said they planned to conduct another survey in April and May that would include the question of whether patients were seeing providers in a timely manner.

HAZMAT

dozens of National Guard units formed across the country after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to provide aid to local and state emergency services in the wake of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons incidents. Because so much of the program’s funding and equipment are provided by the state, Crutchfield said, maintaining the hazmat capability costs the Coos Bay

department very little. Mostly, the space to store the equipment. That’s a price the department is happy to pay. “All of the people in the community benefit from having it here,” he said.

SWOCC leads region BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

The Southwestern Oregon Community College baseball team has gotten off to a stellar start to its league schedule, beginning the season with a 6-2 record in the NWAACC South Region. The Lakers are riding a fourgame winning streak heading into home doubleheaders Friday and Saturday against Mount Hood. “Things are going pretty well,” SWOCC head coach Jason Cooper said. “We’re pitching well, playing good defense, getting good hits when we need them. The guys are coming together and learning to play together well as a group.” SWOCC has three starting pitchers who are capable of going out and being the Lakers’ ace. Dalton Ridgway, Riley Phillips and Shane Doke all start and have been solid with Brandon Farley coming in to close. “They’re completely capable of throwing a shutout every time they hit the mound,” Cooper said. He added about Farley, “When he comes into the game, it’s game over. That helps a lot.” This is Cooper’s third year as SWOCC’s head coach. He now has a group that he hand-picked through recruiting and loves how they’ve been able to mesh this year. “We have good team chemistry,” he said. “When you come in as a head coach, its a process — getting your recruits in and getting all those things — but it’s finally coming together and we’re doing things we want to do as a coaching staff.” Cedric Zumwalt leads the team in almost every offensive category — doubles, triples, homers, runs, hits and stolen bases. Farley has been working double-duty. He is batting .319 and has become one of the Lakers’ most consistent guys in RBI situations. First baseman Hunter Combs has come on as of late. At Clark two weeks ago, he was 3-for-4 with a couple of doubles and hit a home run this past weekend — one of three by the team as it swept four games against Clackamas. Cooper doesn’t see this fourgame win streak as the Lakers’ peak. “We’re teaching the game the right way and it’s working out right now,” Cooper said. “We’re going to keep better every week, every series, and keep a consistent approach. If we do that, we have a chance to be really successful.” This weekend’s doubleheaders with Mount Hood start at 2 p.m. Friday and noon Saturday.

Wright’s 3-pointer lifts Blazers PORTLAND (AP) — Dorell Wright hadn’t hit a game-winner since high school, and certainly he’d never had a winner that was his only basket of the game. But on Wednesday night, Wright hit a 3-pointer with 7.9 seconds left and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the late-charging Sacramento Kings 100-99. The three points amounted to his final total. “That was pretty cool right there,” the nine-year NBA veteran said after the game. “Especially since I was mad at myself for not making my shots the whole game.” Ray McCallum missed a 21-foot jumper as time ran out for the Kings and Portland’s Robin Lopez grabbed the rebound and held it tight for the victory. LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points to lead the Blazers, who have won six of their past seven games. “It was an exciting way to win a game,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “Dorell picked a good time to make his shot.” Portland, which has missed the playoffs for the past two seasons, clinched a postseason berth with a 100-94 victory over New Orleans on Sunday. The Blazers were fifth in the Western Conference with three games left. SEE BLAZERS | B2

Clackamas sweeps Lakers in softball BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

COOS BAY — After getting swept by Clackamas in a doubleheader Wednesday, Southwestern Oregon Community College’s head coach Megan Corriea stood in front of a semicircle of Lakers in left field and preached one thing: Confidence. For six innings, confidence wasn’t a problem for SWOCC. Clackamas had won 13 games coming into Wednesday and six innings in, the Lakers made a 14th look doubtful. The Lakers went toe-to-toe with the Cougars before a nine-run seventh inning in the first game completely derailed the Lakers. In the first matchup, SWOCC lost 10-3 despite leading the first six innings. In the second game, Clackamas mercy-ruled the Lakers, winning 8-0 in five innings. “We weren’t ourselves today,” third baseman Jorden Gerlach said. “We weren’t hitting the ball like we usually do and we came out as a different team. We were really relaxed instead of being aggressive. When something bad happened, we kind of shut down instead of working to get out of it.”

Southwestern’s Jorden Gerlach rounds third base on the way to scoring a run Wednesday. The Lakers were cruising in the first game for six innings. On the mound, Jessica Myers started the game pitching a perfect 4 2-3 innings and only gave up one run through six.

Heading into the seventh, SWOCC had a 2-1 lead and needed just three outs to beat one of the elite teams in the Northwestern Athletic Association of Community Colleges. “We definitely thought we had the win. We felt good going into that seventh inning,” second baseman Hannah Leming said. “We just kind of let off a little bit like we shouldn’t (have) had. It happens, you lose games.” To start the last inning, Corriea put Samantha Burks on the mound to close. She pitched to just one batter, giving up a double to Rashuan Sells, and Corriea put Myers back in. Eleven Clackamas batters later, all the damage was done. Eight different Cougars scored (including Kiara Vasquez twice). “They did great until the last inning,” Corriea said. “It was all over after that.” Leming and Gerlach were the only two Lakers to really put out offensively in the first game. Lemming went 3-for-4 and had all three Laker RBIs. Gerlach went 3-for-4 with a double and a run. In the second game, no Laker swung the bat well. SEE LAKERS | B2

SWOCC hosts Prefontaine meet Saturday Kermit Walker aims for triple jump record in 75-79 age group. ■

THE WORLD Runners, throwers and jumpers will honor legendary Steve Prefontaine on Saturday when Southwestern Oregon Community College hosts its annual Prefontaine Masters Meet. The meet is open to all college and masters athletes, and will include SWOCC faculty member Kermit Walker aiming for a triple jump world record in his age group. The field events start at 11 a.m. Saturday, with the running events starting at noon. The meet has become a popular attraction for regional masters athletes trying to qualify for the Masters National Championships. The online entry deadline for people who want to participate in the meet is today. The fee is $30 for up to three events and $5 for each additional event. To sign up online, visit directathletics.com.

Kermit Walker teaches his fitness class at SWOCC. The assistant coach for the Lakers competes in the triple jump Saturday. Information also can be found at socc.edu/athletlics. People also can sign up Saturday morning. SWOCC coach Dan Neal expects about 30 masters athletes to participate in the meet. The triple jump, which features Walker, is scheduled for 1 p.m. Walker, 78, is an assistant coach for the track team and has

been competing in masters meets since 1970. He currently ranks third in the triple jump for the 7579 age group. Walker has built his life around coaching track and field and teaching the benefits of fitness and physical conditioning. “Having a fitness program increases your health and body

functions,” he said. “I take no medications and eat a lot of fish, fruits and vegetables every day.” At SWOCC he teaches a physical conditioning class for people ages 50 and older and is popular with students and staff at the college. “The fitness class has a waiting list because he can only handle so many people,” Neal said. “Not many classes have a waiting list. “He’s just one of those people that the kids, the staff, everybody looks up to because he’s still doing it.” Walker is also invaluable as an assistant coach. “The big thing is the kids see how dedicated he is to the sport,” Neal said. Friends say he always has a big smile and is ready to lend a helping hand. A volunteer support group of students, staff members and friends calling themselves Kermit’s Krew will help at the meet and cheer Walker on. There is no admission fee for people who want to come watch the meet.

Coquille softball team blanks North Bend THE WORLD After getting its first win of the Far West League schedule against Sutherlin on Tuesday, North Bend’s softball team got smoked by Coquille 14-0 in five innings Wednesday. The game was pushed up a few days because of a memorial service for a former Coquille student Saturday. North Bend fell behind 8-0 by the end of the second and allowed a run in all five innings. North Bend head coach Meghan Thomsen thought it was her team’s mental mistakes — they had more

errors (eight) than hits (five) — that inevitably sunk her team’s chances. “We were are own worst enemy today,” Thomsen said. After pitching light outs in a relief appearance on Tuesday, Patience Cook had three strikeouts in two innings before Lindsay Henson came in for seven strikeouts in the final three innings. Last year Cook pitched in every game and started to develop bad mechanics from never getting a break to work on technique, Thomsen said. She didn’t see the issue on Wednesday being Cook’s pitching. “It wasn’t her, it was our

defense,” Thomsen said. “We’re working something out and we had to pull her today because of how her defense was playing behind her.” Coquille’s Makala Edgar had a double and a triple in the game. Tori Howard had a pair of doubles. McKaily Landmark had a triple and Alaney Gallino and Katie Gurney had doubles. “It was a good game for us,” said Coquille coach Darren Thompson. “We jumped on them early and never let up. “We have been hitting the ball well, but still need to clean some things up.” Thompson also was pleased

with the effort of Howard in the pitcher’s circle. “Tori pitched a gem,” he said. “She was really hitting her spots and keeping them off-balance. “She just keeps getting better, which is scary since she is only a sophomore.” Ashley Cassel hit a double for North Bend’s only extra base hit. The Red Devils host Riddle today. North Bend will be home for a doubleheader against Marshfield on Friday. “Hopefully we can turn it around for Marshfield,” Thomsen said. “I hope we can play up to our capabilities on Friday.”

Indiana gamble pays off

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MILWAUKEE — Chris Copeland’s driving layup with 1.2 seconds remaining gave the Indiana Pacers a 104-102 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night that moved them back into first place in the Eastern Conference. Copeland finished with a seasonhigh 18 points. Luis Scola also recorded a season high with 24 points and Evan Turner added 23 for Indiana, which benched all of its usual starters for the entire game. Coach Frank Vogel made the move after saying his team appeared tired following a 107-88 home loss to Atlanta on Sunday, when the Pacers were held to a franchise-low 23 points in the first half. Even without the starters, Indiana moved a half-game ahead of the Heat heading into Friday’s matchup in Miami. Grizzlies 107, Heat 102: Zach Randolph had 25 points and 11 rebounds, Marc Gasol added 20 points and 14 rebounds and Memphis kept its playoff hopes alive with a victory over Miami. LeBron James led the Heat with 37 points, connecting on 14 of 23 shots, including 3 of 5 from beyond the arc. Rashard Lewis scored 17, and Chris Bosh finished with 13 points. Mario Chalmers scored 12 points for the Heat. Mike Conley finished with a team-high 26 points and handed out six assists as Memphis remained one game behind the Phoenix Suns for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Suns defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 94-88 also on Wednesday night. Bobcats 94, Wizards 88, OT: Kemba Walker made the only field goal for either team in overtime, and Charlotte won its fifth straight and moved into position for the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference with a win over Washington.

HONOLULU — The next Pro Bowl will be played in Arizona at the site of the Super Bowl, skipping Hawaii for the first time since 2010. The game will return to Hawaii in 2016, the NFL announced Wednesday. The 2015 game will be the third time the Pro Bowl is held in the same city as the Super Bowl. The NFL’s allstar game took place in Los A n ge l e s after the f i r s t Super Bowl in 1967, then the two games weren’t in the same city again until South Florida in 2010. Since 1980, all but one Pro Bowl has been held at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, the college football home of the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. The Pro Bowl will remain a week before the Super Bowl, as it has the last five years. The new format introduced after last season, which scrapped the AFC vs. NFC matchup, will be retained. The new format splits the all-stars through a schoolyard-style draft, a setup loosely based on fantasy sports meant to play toward player egos and the changing ways fans are interacting with the game. The Pro Bowl after this coming season will take place Jan. 25, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium. A year later, the game will be held Jan. 31, 2016, at Aloha Stadium.

Charlotte went 1 for 7 from the field, while Washington was 0 for 8 and got its only point from a free throw by John Wall with 34 seconds remaining. Jefferson finished with 20 points and 18 rebounds, and Walker had 17 points and 12 assists, for the Bobcats, who have their longest winning streak since March 2010 — the only other season the franchise has made the playoffs. Cavaliers 122, Pistons 100: Dion Waiters scored 22 points and Cleveland played one of its best games this season, routing Detroit before being eliminated from the playoff chase. Tyler Zeller scored 18 and rookie Matthew Dellavedova had 14 points and 12 assists for Cleveland, which had its playoff hopes ended when Atlanta defeated Boston 105-97. As the Hawks were rallying to take down the Celtics, the Cavs played with passion and purpose — two things missing too often earlier this season. Hawks 105, Celtics 97: Jeff Teague scored 19 points, Kyle Korver added 17 and Atlanta helped its playoff chances with a victory over Boston. With four games remaining in the regular season, Atlanta increased its lead to two games over the New York Knicks for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Avery Bradley finished with 24 points and Rajon

Rondo had 19 points with 12 assists for Boston, which has lost nine straight. The Celtics dropped their 13th in a row on the road, breaking the franchise mark set during the final 13 games of 1978-79. Thunder 107, Clippers 101: Russell Westbrook scored 30 points in his return to the lineup, Kevin Durant added 27, and Oklahoma City held off Los Angeles in a possible playoff preview. Serge Ibaka added 15 points for the Thunder, who had their starting five together for just the second time since Christmas Day. Westbrook had sat out two of the previous three games and has missed 34 games this season with a variety of injuries. Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, and Chris Paul added 25 points and eight assists for the Clippers, who could have owned the tiebreaker over the Thunder if they had won. Instead, the teams split their season series 2-2. Bulls 102, Minnesota 87: D.J. Augustin scored 21 points and Joakim Noah posted his league-leading fourth triple-double of the season, leading Chicago over Minnesota. Noah had 15 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists to move into a tie with Indiana’s Lance Stephenson for the most triple-doubles in the NBA this season. Kevin Love had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves. Suns 94, Pelicans 88: Gerald Green scored 21 points, and Phoenix won its

third straight game. Goran Dragic had 20 points and nine assists for the Suns, who are clinging to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Rookie center Jeff Withey had a career-high 17 points for the Pelicans. Nuggets 123, Rockets 116: Randy Foye scored 24 of his 30 points in the second half, and Denver hung on to beat Houston. Kenneth Faried had 23 points and Timofey Mozgov added 22 for the Nuggets, who beat the Rockets for the first time in three tries this season. Jeremy Lin led eight Houston players in double figures with 18 points.

Kyle Lowry led Toronto with 29 points in his first game back after missing three with a bruised kneecap. Patrick Patterson finished with 17 for the Raptors in their fourth straight victory and seventh in eight games. Magic 115, Nets 111: Arron Afflalo scored 25 points, E’Twaun Moore added 17 and Orlando held off a late rally to beat Brooklyn. Joe Johnson scored 31 points and Mirza Teletovic had 17 as the Nets had a three-game winning streak stopped. Mason Plumlee had 16 points and Marcus Thornton 13 off the bench for the Nets, who played without injured starters Paul Pierce and Shaun Livingston.

Damian Lillard’s 3-pointer put Portland up 91-86, but Cousins’ layup tied it again at 93 with 3:12 left. Aldridge dunked, but Travis Outlaw’s jumper tied it again before Cousins scored to make it 97-95 for the Kings with 1:31 left. It was Sacramento’s first lead of the game. Lopez made two free

throws for the Blazers to tie it at 97 with 42.3 seconds to go. Cousins made a pair of free throws to give the Kings back a 99-97 lead with 14.8 seconds left before Wright made the 3 for the win. After the game, Wright’s Blazers teammates nicknamed him “Little Robert Horry.” “We didn’t get a great shot, didn’t get great execution on that last play, but a great opportunity for Ray to make a play,” Kings coach Michael Malone said. “But he

came up a little bit short.” Lillard had 19 points and 10 rebounds. “We made it a lot tougher than it should have been,” Lillard said. Gay also missed Tuesday night’s 107-92 loss at Oklahoma City because of a lower back strain. Guard Isaiah Thomas missed his ninth straight game because of a right quad injury. Former Blazer Travis Outlaw got his fourth start of the season for the Kings.

COLLEGE SPORTS Women’s title game draws big TV audience BRISTOL, Conn. — The championship game between two undefeated teams drew the highest television rating

SWOCC From Page B1 SWOCC only had two hits — a Kelsey Jeffries single in the first and a Jordin Sanchez double in the third. Those were the only two Laker base runners in the game. Burks pitched all five innings of the second game after making her brief appearance in the first game. She fell into a 5-0 hole by the end of the second inning but just kept plowing through, even with the complete lack of run support from her offense. “I just keep trying to do what I can do,” Burks said. “I have faith in my team but sometimes it just doesn’t work out too well.” Burks’ biggest blow came in the fourth when Vasquez blasted a three-run homer over Hannah Lowe in center to put Clackamas up 8-0. After the game, Corriea said her team wasn’t making adjustments and suspects

for women’s basketball in a decade. UConn’s 79-58 win over Notre Dame on ESPN on Tuesday earned a 2.8 rating. That’s the best since a 3.5 for the UConn-Tennessee final in 2004. The Huskies’ big lead prevented a higher rating, but it was still up 40 percent from last year’s UConn-Louisville final.

Wide-open Masters starts in sunny conditions AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The Masters began today with three shots right down the middle of the fairway. Just not terribly far. Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus hit the ceremonial tee shots with fans already lining both sides of the first fairway on a brisk, sunny morning. Still competitive even after all these years, Nicklaus went last and hit a drive that went about a yard past Player’s shot. “But it’s not bad when you think he used to outdrive me by 50,” Player quipped. The “Big Three” combined to win 13 green jackets, including seven in a row at the start of the 1960s. This Masters is far less predictable. Without Tiger Woods or a dominant figure, it’s seen as the most wideopen Masters in years. A bunch of brash Augusta rookies are eager to fill Woods’ shoes, and the last two dozen majors have been divvied up among 21 winners. Jonas Blixt and Miguel Angel Jimenez were the early leaders today at 3-under, with the group a shot back featuring legends Fred Couples and Sandy Lyle, as well as defending champion Adam Scott, Steve Stricker, Rory McIlroy, Bill Haas and Kevin Stadler. Ryan Moore, who won the Par 3 contest Wednesday, thinks it might be time to break the curse of that winner never winning the tournament. “You never know,” he said. “Someone has got to break that (Par 3) curse at some point in time, so hopefully it’s me. Who knows? I might

Fuzzy Zoeller was the last Augusta rookie to claim the green jacket in 1979, and the only other ones to do it were the first two: Horton Smith and Gene Sarazen. Then again, there are 24 first-timers in the 98-player field, a record (except for the first tournament), and none of them will concede an insurmountable learning curve. Besides, no one is dominating golf at the moment. Walker has the most PGA Tour wins (three) this season, but this is his first Masters. Scott had a chance to go to No. 1 three weeks ago at Bay Hill, but he lost a three-shot lead in the final round to Matt Every, who had never won in his career. “Doesn’t matter if you’ve played here once or if you’ve played here 50 times,” said Patrick Reed, who has won three times in the past eight months. “When it comes down to it, it’s just going to be The Associated Press that whoever is playing the Arnold Palmer, center, watches as Jack Nicklaus, left, and Gary Player touch fists after Palmer hit his ceremonial drive on the first tee before the best is going to walk away with the trophy.” first round of the Masters today. go shoot 8 under or something, make a couple of holein-ones.” As unlikely as that sounds, pretty much everything else is up for grabs at this Masters. Recovering from back surgery, Woods is sitting out the opening major of the year for the first time since turning pro. Even as his dominance waned in recent years, he was always the clear-cut favorite coming into Augusta, where he has won four times. Now, as Moore said, who knows? Jason Day, Sergio Garcia and former Masters champi-

on Zach Johnson are the only players from the top 10 who have won anywhere in the world this year. Only one of the past seven winners on the PGA Tour was ranked in the top 75. “I think if you’re outside the top 50 in the world this week, you’ve got a great chance,” U.S. Open champion Justin Rose said with a laugh. Woods is out of golf until the summer, but the show goes on at a tournament that rarely fails to deliver plenty of drama. “It’s a huge loss,” Scott said. “But, as every year here,

this event produces something special no matter what. It just has a way of doing it. It’s not going to involve Tiger this year, but it will involve someone else and it will be a memorable event anyway.” It could be Scott, trying to take over as the world’s No. 1 player and join Woods, Nicklaus and Nick Faldo as the only back-to-back winners. Or it could be Phil Mickelson, who last year won the British Open at age 42 and now has a chance to join Woods and Palmer with a fourth green jacket. While Woods last won the

Masters in 2005, he had finished out of the top six only once since then. That’s what made him such a compelling figure at Augusta. He always seemed to be there. Rose falls on the side of experience — knowing where to miss, knowing where you can’t afford to miss, where the hole locations tend to be on the contoured greens and using the slope to get the ball close. “Always you can have the unknowns,” Rose said. “But I would say 15 guys are pretty strong favorites.”

Par-3 Contest While Moore won the annual Wednesday event with a 6-under 21, many eyes were drawn to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. McIlroy’s fiancee showed up with her blonde hair dyed bright pink and wore matching shoes. Wozniacki caddied for McIlroy. Wozniacki also caddied for McIlroy last year, and drew laughs when she a swing at a ball and sent it dribbling into a pond. She didn’t take any hacks this time, just making a putt on the ninth green.

Angels’ Hamilton will get a second opinion on thumb

The Associated Press

Cincinnati Reds' Billy Hamilton, right, scores ahead of the tag from St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina on a sacrifice fly by Jay Bruce during the fifth inning Wednesday in St. Louis.

Reds shut out Cardinals THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. LOUIS — Billy Hamilton had three hits and his first two steals, and scored easily after tagging up on a shallow outfield pop fly to support a strong outing from Mike Leake in the Cincinnati Reds’ 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday. Leake (1-1) allowed four hits and a walk in eight scoreless innings and Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run home run for the Reds, who avoided a three-game sweep after dropping their ninth series in their last 10 in St. Louis. Shelby Miller (0-2) allowed his fourth homer in two starts but held the Reds hitless in nine at-bats with runners in scoring position. Rockies 10, White Sox 4: D.J. LeMahieu’s two-run single broke a tie in a six-run eighth inning. LeMahieu finished with three hits, including an RBI double in the sixth that tied the NL game at 4. Brothers (1-0) Recap gotRex two outs in the eighth as the Rockies took two of three in the series, and reliever Scott Downs (02) was the loser. Chicago lost right fielder Avisail Garcia after he jammed his left shoulder diving for LeMahieu’s low liner in the sixth. The teams said X-rays were negative for a fracture or a separation. Nationals 10, Marlins 7: Jayson Werth hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning off Carlos Marmol after Bryce Harper’s upper-deck, three-run homer started a comeback from an early deficit, leaidng the Washington Nationals over the Miami Marlins. Werth and Harper each delivered his first homer of the season as Washington overcame deficits of 5-0 and 7-6 in a topsy-turvy game. Werth’s shot off Marmol (0-1) came with one out, after the reliever allowed a single, hit a batter, then intentionally walked Anthony Rendon to load the bases. It made a winner of Tyler Clippard

(1-1), who yielded Garrett Jones’ tiebreaking RBI double in the top of the eighth after walking a pair of batters. Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for his second save. Cubs 7, Pirates 5: Jason Hammel threw seven strong innings, Anthony Rizzo had four hits, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates despite allowing five solo home runs. Hammel (2-0) retired the first 12 batters until Pedro Alvarez’s first homer of the game tied it to start the fifth. Hammel allowed three runs and three hits — all solo homers — while striking out six. Mike Olt and Junior Lake hit back-to-back home runs in the fifth against Wandy Rodriguez (0-2). Alvarez and Russell Martin homered twice for the Pirates, and Travis Snider also went deep. Braves 4, Mets 3: Ervin Santana allowed only three hits over eight scoreless innings in his Atlanta debut, Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs and the Braves held off the New York Mets. The Braves led 4-0, but the Mets rallied in the ninth after Santana was removed. Juan Lagares drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single, and Travis d’Arnaud added a run-scoring single before Craig Kimbrel fanned Ruben Tejada for his fourth save. Santana (1-0) finished with six strikeouts and no walks. Georgia native Zack Wheeler (0-2) allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings for the Mets. Brewers 9, Phillies 4: Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple during a four-run eighth inning rally to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to their fifth straight win. Carlos Gomez and Mark Reynolds homered and Jean Segura doubled and drove in a run for Milwaukee, which has won all five games during the streak on the road. The Brewers snapped a 4-all tie in the eighth when they scored three runs on one hit off Antonio Bastardo (01). Reynolds scored the go-ahead run on an error by first baseman Ryan Howard.

SEATTLE (AP) — Josh Hamilton’s attempt to beat out an infield grounder with a headfirst slide into first base landed him on the bench for up to two months. The 2010 AL MVP was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday by the Los Angeles Angels with a torn ligament in his left thumb. He was hurt trying to hustle down the line and beat out a grounder in the seventh inning of Tuesday night’s loss to Seattle. Hamilton was thrown out, but the consequences of his decision ended up being far greater. “The news sucks. Anytime you play and you’re playing hard and having fun, the last thing you want to do is do something that is going to cause you to miss time and maybe hurt your team in the long run,” Hamilton said. “If I could see the future, obviously, I wouldn’t do it.” Los Angeles said an MRI Wednesday revealed a complete tear of the thumb’s ulnar collateral ligament. After initially saying hand and wrist specialist Dr. Steven Shin would operate at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedics in Los Angeles, the Angels said Hamilton will be examined by Shin on Friday to deter-

Tyler Thornburg (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory. Diamondbacks 7, Giants 3: Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer and sacrifice fly to pound Tim Lincecum again, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants. Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer and Eric Chavez added an RBI triple for his first hit in his first start of the year for Arizona. Goldschmidt is batting .542 (13-for24) with seven homers and 17 RBIs alltime against Lincecum, including a two-run homer last week at Chase Field.

mine whether surgery is needed. Hamilton was placed on the 15-day disabled list, and outfielder J.B. Shuck was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. Hamilton said he believed it was just a jammed thumb, but when he tried throwing in the outfield between innings he knew something might be wrong. Hamilton told manager Mike Scioscia to have someone pinch hit for him in the ninth. Ian Stewart batted for Hamilton and struck out with the potential tying run on base in a 5-3 loss. A five-time All-Star, Hamilton has struggled since signing a $125 million, fiveyear contract with the Angels before the 2013 season. He hit a career-low .250 last year with 21 homers and 79 RBIs, his poorest power numbers since 2009. He was batting .207 with 25 RBIs through June 23, then hit .289 with 54 RBIs during the rest of the season. Hamilton strained a calf muscle during a baserunning drill on Feb. 25 and didn’t play in his first spring training game until March 17. He is hitting .444 with two homers and six RBIs in 27 at-bats this season.

Jamaican sprinter banned 18 months Once the top sprinter on the track, Powell lowered the world record in the 100 to 9.74 in 2008 before being eclipsed by countryman Usain Bolt. Like former teammate Sherone Simpson, a threetime Olympic medalist who tested positive for the same stimulant at the national trials in June, Powell had placed the blame on a newly-hired trainer who provided the two athletes with supplements. When Powell’s positive doping test came to light in July, he said he was “reeling from this genuinely surprising result.” He denied ever being a “cheat.” During hearings earlier this year, Powell testified that he received nine supplements from Canadian physiotherapist Christopher Xuereb, including one called “Epiphany D1,” which lab tests later found to contain oxilofrone. Powell said he started taking the capsules in early June after he and a friend researched the supplement for up to six hours online and found no prohibited substances.

Ortiz’s three-run blast lifts Red Sox past Rangers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON — David Ortiz hit a three-run homer high over the Pesky Pole in the eighth inning, helping the Boston Red Sox rally for a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday. Ortiz’s second homer was heading down the right-field line before it curled around the pole just 302 feet from home plate. Ortiz remained in the batter’s box until first-base umpire Jerry Meals signaled a home run. Rangers manager Ron Washington came out after Ortiz crossed the plate to ask for a review. After 44.1 seconds, the AL play was upheld. Recap “From our angle, it’s extremely difficult to tell,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “We felt like it would be inconclusive at best with any type of replay that was available.” Andrew Miller (1-0) won despite allowing the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth, and Koji Uehara pitched the ninth for his second save. Alexi Ogando (0-1) was the loser. Angels 2, Mariners 0: Albert Pujols homered for the second straight game while Garrett Richards and two relievers combined on one-hitter as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners. On the day the Angels lost Josh Hamilton for potentially up to two months to injury, Pujols provided the biggest blow. He hit a two-run homer in the third off Seattle starter Roenis Elias (0-1). Richards (2-0) threw seven shutout innings. Abraham Almonte was the only Seattle batter to reach via hit when he singled in the third inning. Richards walked three batters and the Angels committed two errors.

The Associated Press

Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz watches his three-run homer in front of Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos during the eighth inning at Fenway Park in Boston on Wednesday. But Richards overcame those mistakes by striking out six. Orioles 5, Yankees 4: Nick Markakis had an RBI single in the ninth inning against fillin closer Shawn Kelley, and Baltimore rallied for a victory in Masahiro Tanaka’s first Yankee Stadium start. Jonathan Schoop hit a three-run homer off Tanaka in the second inning of his first start at Yankee Stadium but Carlos Beltran and Kelly Johnson connected against Miguel Gonzalez in the bottom of the inning.

The Orioles, who managed seven hits while striking out 10 times against Tananka in seven innings, lined four straight singles to center field off Kelley (0-1). Tommy Hunter gave up a run before getting Yangervis Solarte to ground into a double play for his third save. Brian Matusz got two outs (1-0) for the win. Blue Jays 7, Astros 3: Brett Lawrie hit a two-run homer and Brandon Morrow won for the first time in almost 11 months. Alex Presley hit a two-run homer for the

Astros, who have lost six of seven following a 2-0 start. Morrow (1-1), limited to 10 starts last season with a nerve injury in his forearm, won for the first time since May 23, 2013, when he beat Baltimore. He allowed three runs and five hits in six innings and struck out nine. Steve Delabar got one out in the ninth but had to leave after he was hit on the lower right leg by Jose Altuve’s liner. Esmil Rogers finished. Jose Bautista hit an RBI double in the first and Adam Lind added an RBI single as the Blue Jays jumped out to a quick lead against Lucas Harrell (0-2). Athletics 7, Twins 4: Derek Norris hit a three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jared Burton (0-1), and Oakland Athletics bounced back from another blown save by new closer Jim Johnson. Dan Otero (1-0) got the last eight outs for the victory in relief of Johnson, who has given up seven runs, nine hits and six walks in five appearances with the A’s. Oakland has eight straight wins over the Twins, all with at least seven runs. Minnesota trailed 4-0 after a rocky first inning by Phil Hughes, who needed 40 pitches to get for his first out and wound up allowing four runs, five hits and three walks in five innings. Royals 7, Rays 3: Alex Gordon hit a threerun homer and matched a career high with four RBIs. Jeremy Guthrie (2-0) recovered from a sloppy start to hold the Rays to four hits over seven innings. Kansas City broke open the game with a five-run fifth off Jake Odorizzi (1-1), part of 2012 trade that brought James Shields from Tampa Bay to Kansas City.
