Iran begins nuke deal shutdown TEHRAN, Iran — Iran started to shut down its most sensitive nuclear work on Monday, part of a landmark deal struck with world powers that ease international concerns over the country’s nuclear program and clearing the way for a partial lifting of sanctions, the state media said. The United Nations nuclear agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency, confirmed that higher-level uranium enrichment in the Natanz facility in central Iran had been stopped. Iran’s decision to halt higherlevel enrichment is seen as a key step toward easing Western fears over Tehran’s nuclear program. The West fears Iran seeks to build a nuclear bomb. The Islamic Republic insists the program is solely for peaceful purposes. The shutdown follows a historic deal reached Iran reached with world powers in Geneva on Nov. 24 that calls for an end to higher-level

WASHINGTON — Leaders of the congressional intelligence committees are pushing back against a key part of President Barack Obama’s attempt to overhaul U.S. surveillance, saying it is unworkable for the government to let someone else control how Americans’ phone records are stored. Obama, under pressure over
the controversy over government spying, said last week he wants bulk phone data stored outside the government to reduce the risk that the records will be abused. Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that Obama had intensified a sense of uncertainty about the country’s ability to root out terrorist threats. Obama didn’t say who should have control of Americans’ data; he directed the attorney

Wake for Eugene boy, 5, killed by the flu EUGENE (AP) — Ronan Burgess loved chocolate chip pancakes but he did not want to finish his vegetables and would try to sneak them to his pet dogs. The 5-year-old Eugene boy who died of the flu was remembered at a wake Sunday in Eugene as a happy, active boy who had clever ways to bend the rules. The Register-Guard reports the boy who died Dec. 30 at a Portland hospital is the only known child to have died of the flu this sea-
son in Oregon. At least eight adults in the state also have died of the flu.

Leave the states to lead the way In the beginning, Massachusetts opened the gates to same-sex marriage and universal health coverage. California started to liberalize drug laws by legalizing medical marijuana. The sky didn’t fall on any of these efforts, initially regarded as dangerous social experiments by many conservatives. Now red states such as Kentucky are launching state-run health insurance exchanges. Federal judges in conservative Utah and Oklahoma are calling bans on gay marriage unconstitutional. And purple Colorado has legalized recreational marijuana use. Most of us have a vision of the way things ought to be. It is human nature to want others to see the same light we do. Conservative foes of abortion hold deep convictions that ending a pregnancy is a moral travesty. Liberals make similar arguments against a health care system that lets thousands of Americans die for lack of medical attention, which happens when market forces run the show. Social activists who live and breathe their cause often seek to impose their views on a diverse nation. They don’t realize that they can more easily get what they want in states whose culture shares their views. Showing that a state has enacted their ideas with good effect is the most expedient way of spreading their ideas coast to coast. But putting such power in state hands doesn’t always sit well. Liberals, especially, point to slavery and Jim Crow laws as great evils that flew under the banner of states’ rights. These were moral outrages that the federal government had to stop, and did. True, but many less momentous struggles can be more peaceably and efficiently won through example. As the late U.S. Supreme Court FROMA Justice Louis Brandeis HARROP famously said, states can serve as the “laboratories Columnist of democracy.” Many liberals are enthusing over a bill introduced last month by Sen. Bernie Sanders, a liberal Vermont independent, and Rep. Jim McDermott, a Washington state Democrat, which would create a national single-payer health care system. I happen to think the SandersMcDermott proposal — actually a modified single-payer plan allowing private supplemental coverage — is splendid. But it also has zero chance of passage. Recall how even the modest “public option” — a government plan to compete with the private insurers — couldn’t get past Congress, including some Democratic members. The best hope for national single-payer is to let Vermont show that its homegrown version will work. If Vermont can cut its health care spending by over 30 percent under single-payer, as is projected, other states will copy it, with no pressure needed from Washington. Gay activists regard laws banning same-sex marriage as a great injustice, and with reason. But simply waiting for a Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage legal nationwide, no certainty, would have been a massive waste of time. Marriage is a state responsibility, so what better place to change the laws than in states open to it? New Mexico’s Supreme Court just ruled that the ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional. In Virginia, another purple state, the Democratic leaders are going full speed ahead. They are bolstered by polls showing that 56 percent of Virginians are in favor of same-sex marriage, a reversal from the 57 percent supporting a ban in 2006. This tide of change would not have rolled in had liberal states not demonstrated what happens to the broader society when gay couples marry — very little. Some states will do things noxious to liberals, for example, on gun control and public financing for education. Conservatives will dislike decisions made in liberal places. Fine. Let’s all make a pact to stop trying to make everyone else over in our own image. Nothing convinces like successful examples. Liberals, above all, should have more confidence in their own.

Letters to the Editor Dental program does a body good Thank you for your article “Another Good Reason to Smile” on Jan. 10, 2014. The Ready to Smile program is a wonderful example of The Oregon Community Foundation’s ability to convene partners and leverage resources to make communities stronger. The program is the result of efforts on the part of OCF’s volunteer South Coast Leadership Council. Members of the council researched the needs in our region and discovered that too many children in Coos and Curry counties were lacking proper dental education and care. With OCF seed money and staff support, we were able to bring public and private partners together to help increase access to children’s dental health. We have also enjoyed tremendous support from dental health professionals, many of whom have volunteered their time to provide dental care in schools and other community centers. Additionally, individual donors, local civic organizations and regional foundations have generously added their dollars and volunteer time to sustain the effort. We now look to the community to continue building on the good work of the Ready to Smile program. I’m proud to be part of such an effort and pleased to be part of OCF. The foundation is effectively working around the state to improve lives in Oregon. Penny Allen Bandon
GOP had nothing to do with Obama Writing this letter is something I would rather not do because I am not very good at it like some people who write in, but I have no choice. The wife and I do not watch television so we seek our entertainment where we can, and reading one of the Z-man’s letters qualifies. Sure, they are repetitive, always bashing anyone who doesn't agree with him,
but still, they are worth a laugh. But when he tried to give us Obama by writing Republican President Obama, that tore my shorts. The fact is that Z most assuredly voted for that disaster, probably twice. And the fact is that a lot of people who voted for him voted strictly on the basis of his race. And what did they get but the two worst racists this side of George Wallace. And a president that has said himself that he wants to completely change the United States. By that he means he wants to run it his way with no input from the judicial or Congress or anybody else, just like he has been trying his best to do. So you just go on writing your rants about the Republicans and anybody on the right, Zimmerman, and we will go on snickering about it. But don’t you dare try giving that mess to us Republicans, we had nothing to do with it. Don Riffle Port Orford
Outsourcing is popping up everywhere Did anyone notice the eight shiny new self-serve checkout stands at Walmart? After the debate about outsourcing transcriptionists at the hospital, I see these self-serve checkouts as another egregious way of outsourcing jobs in this area. How many “full-time equivalents” (we don’t dare refer to them as employees, that would put too much human face on the matter) no longer have their job and can no longer afford to shop at Walmart? Joyce Walter North Bend
Outsourcing jobs is a scary proposition Our public hospital used to be mindfully unique in how it cared about its employees who care for patients in a healing environment. Sure, hospitals are finding ways to save money by redefining how the ever-changing
world of patient documentation is managed. Stinkin’ thinkin’ was done on the board members’ part, and this administration, for allowing such a breach of honor in this small community. Sounds like the public, since it's your community hospital, needs to understand what is really up. No matter how smooth the talk or playing the good guy looks, payment still goes to California. The board needs to see the faces of the 10 people who have had their mortgages affected and the stability of their families. Employees with five to 30 years of service could have been phased out over the coming years by retiring gracefully and with dignity, since transcription services are still needed. These employees have lost growth in their pensions, their health care benefits, their PTO, and in the process will now have reduced Social Security benefits. Three months of offered health care benefits is not a severance package. When all quiets down, this will happen in other departments, and people take notice, this could happen to you. BAH employees are exposed somewhere within on a daily basis to intimidation, control and threats by management. HR backs up and allows unfair treatment of employees. There is retribution if employees speak out, contrary to the hospitals own policies. They won't do it openly but secretively and underhandedly. Managers are in fear for their own jobs and don't want attention brought to themselves or their departments. Any leadership that rules by fear and intimidation is not leadership with integrity. People need a job but how much should they take from this administration before employees blow and let the truth rain. "It's scary" what the powers may do next, and hopefully not continued doom. I'd love to see this hospital be brilliant and shine. However, right now it's dirty. Voyage to excellence is what the hospital claims to have. Does this sound like an excellent voyage you would want to take? Elaine Kelley Coos Bay
Parents resisting standardized tests Huge numbers of students must take high-stakes standardized tests that may shape the rest of their lives. These tests, however, take no account of the differences among the individual students. For particular examples, the tests don’t recognize the students’ home lives, or the visual or hearing problems that have impeded their learning. Those students often failing these tests are lower-income blacks and Hispanics, and students with special needs such as English language difficulties. But many other children fail them,too. Furthermore, many of these students who keep failing learn in school that they are dumb and drop out to begin dead-end lives. But now, parents are actually reading about these tests and increasingly organizing against them. For example, as Bob Peterson, the President of the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association, commented on his blog last fall, “This year both the state and the school district have increased testing for four-, five-, six- and seven-year-old students in the district.” He went on to write about Milwaukee parent Jasmine Alinder, whose daughter was just starting kindergarten. Alinder, the president of Parents for Public Schools of Milwaukee, explained her frustrations in an essay she posted to Facebook, which Peterson quoted extensively from. Alinder wrote: “MAP (Measure of Academic Progress)
testing for 5year-olds does not test math and reading competency. At best it tests patience and computer literacy, which is more likely an NAT indication of c o m p u t e r HENTOFF access at home. Columnist “At worst it creates a culture of stress and frustration around standardized testing that may scar some of these children for the rest of their school careers.” I’ve known older kids taking such tests in higher-income neighborhoods. They get sick to their stomachs taking practice tests in preparation for the actual tests that will be on their permanent records. What do they really learn from such tests? But parents are continuing to speak up nationally, as AlterNet reported last October on a school in my city, New York: “The Castle Bridge Elementary School is a progressive, dual-language K-2 school in the Washington Heights section ... When parents there learned of a plan to give multiple choice tests to children as young as kindergarten, they decided enough was enough. They refused to let their children be tested.” So the principal canceled the test.
A penetratingly clear, common sense reason for doing away with collective standardized tests is provided by Neal McCluskey, the associate director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Educational Freedom. (I am a senior fellow at Cato.) In the November/December 2013 Cato Policy Report, which was on the emergence of the Common Core State Standards, McCluskey wrote: “Why is the idea of common standards (and tests) wrong? Simply put, it’s because all children are different. They learn different things at different rates during different times. “They start from different places. They have different interests. The idea that they should all be fed into some sort of lock-step standardized system doesn’t fit with the reality of human beings” (”Common Core: The Great Debate,” Cato Policy Report, Nov./Dec. 2013). For many years, until arthritis limited my traveling, I saw these human differentiations — from elementary school through high school — in classrooms around the country. Getting to speak to students outside of their schools, I found some of their homes and neighborhoods were such that they distracted the kids from getting an education. Indeed, I saw individual differences in the children’s hearing and vision capabilities that deeply affected how and when they learned. In addition to McCluskey’s views on the various ways chil-
dren learn how to learn, another beneficial perspective comes from an article sent to me by Nancy Carlsson-Paige, professor emerita of early childhood education at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass. The article, on the shortcomings of standardized collective testing, was coauthored with Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. I am often at odds with the American Federation of Teachers, but as I have reported elsewhere, I do agree with Weingarten’s efforts to have public schools become part of an evolving interaction with the surrounding community. In the article, she and Carlsson-Paige explained: “Young kids learn actively, through hands-on experiences in the real world. They develop skills over time through a process of building ideas. But the process is not always linear and is not quantifiable; expecting young children to know specific facts or skills at specified ages is not compatible with how they learn.” Instead of “having fun” as a goal, I would emphasize enabling young kids to discover the joy of learning. This leads them to exploring the range of their capacities as knowledgeable individuals in our society on how it works. What too many teachers, principals and school boards have yet to learn is that education can be very exciting for students preparing to be active citizens.

State Teenager’s taxi service has a disgruntled rider DEAR ABBY: I’m a high school senior.At the beginning of the school year, I agreed to drive my best friend to school in the mornings, and for a while it was nice. Last month she started to refuse to talk while I was DEAR driving. If I tried talking to her, she wouldn’t respond. She recently told her b oy f r i e n d (who she texts constantly JEANNE PHILLIPS while riding with me) that she didn’t like my driving. I found out because of a post he made on Facebook. When I asked her about it, she said that morning I had slammed on the brakes and it scared her. This has made me tense and stressed out in the mornings, and I want to stop driving her. My grandmother says I should stick it out instead of causing friction. My mom thinks I should stop driving her, but only if she can find another ride. I tried to explain this to her, but she won’t listen and I’m still stuck with her. This has ruined our relationship. I feel like she hates me, but I don’t know what to do about any of it. Help! — DRIVEN CRAZY IN FLORIDA DE AR D RI VEN CR AZ Y : Your former best friend may have stopped talking to you on the way to school because she was too busy texting her boyfriend. She is ignoring the fact that you have been doing her the favor of transporting her and is using you as a private taxi service. If she was frightened because you braked suddenly, the person she should have said it to was YOU. So stop “explaining” to her and TELL her that if she wants to continue getting a free ride, she had better adjust her attitude or make other arrangements for transportation. DEAR ABBY: My daughter, the mother of a toddler, just had twins. We live four hours away, so I stayed with them for a few weeks to help her and her husband adjust to their larger family. It taught me a lot about how to help new mothers who are feeling overwhelmed. It’s not about holding the babies; everyone wants to do that.Instead,if you really want to help tired parents, do one of the following: Take the older children to the park,the library,the zoo,to a diner for breakfast. Keep them happy and safe, and bring them home worn out. Bring dinner or takeout when visiting. Wash, dry and fold the laundry. Get the kids ready for bed, give them their baths, read books to them and wait until they are asleep to leave. Clean the house, run the vacuum, empty the garbage and change the beds. Buy groceries (the basics), including paper goods, and grab a box of gallon plastic bags, masking tape and Sharpies (to date frozen foods). The gift of your time is ever so much more helpful than cute baby outfits that are quickly outgrown. Thanks, Abby! — PROUD GRANDMA IN NEW YORK DEAR PROUD GRANDMA: My warm congratulations on the new additions to your family. Your daughter is a lucky woman. Your letter should be clipped and saved by anyone who is looking forward to grandparenthood because it is a classic. DEAR READERS: Today we celebrate the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the visionary civil rights leader who was assassinated in 1968. Many of his words ring as true today as when they were first spoken. The quote I have in mind as I write this is, “All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us faceto-face with another problem.” It applies to many aspects of life.

Authorities say the 2011 killing spree was part of a white supremacist scheme. Attorney General Eric Holder has until next month to decide whether to pursue the death penalty. Pedersen and Grigsby are scheduled to be tried together in July. Grigsby has two courtappointed attorneys. It’s unclear why Pedersen wants to represent himself. His motion requesting selfrepresentation was filed under seal. Haggerty said Pedersen’s attorneys, Renee Manes and Richard Wolf, are excellent and have worked hard on the case. If you represent yourself, Haggerty told Pedersen, you will have limited access to court filings, legal materials and the ability to control witnesses. Pedersen, who has no formal legal training, said he understood the ramifications. He agreed to keep Manes and Wolf as standby counsel, meaning they won’t work the case but will be in the courtroom if Pedersen has a question.

Lawmakers to weigh OHSU $200 million bond request SALEM (AP) — Executives at Oregon Health & Science University are asking state lawmakers to take on $200 million in debt to help secure a massive donation from Nike founder Phil Knight and his wife. The Knights have committed to giving OHSU $500 million for cancer research if the university can raise an equal amount from other sources within two years, bringing in a total investment of $1 billion. OHSU wants to use the money to lure highprofile scientists to conduct groundbreaking research into early detection of cancer. “Oregon will be known as the state where premier cancer research is done,” said Dr. Joe Robertson, president of OHSU. “We’re known for the best pinot, and we’ll be known for the best cancer research.” Robertson said the money would be sufficient to move 20 researchers and their labs
to OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute, which was named for the Nike founder and his wife following a $100 million gift in 2008. An influx of cash that large would free researchers from many of the
onerous grant applications they spend time writing. Most of the money would be spent over about a decade, he said, but about $250 million would go into an endowment.

Both drivers in crash impaired, police say BANKS (AP) — Oregon authorities say both drivers involved in a head-on crash were driving impaired. The Oregon State Police said the Sunday morning crash on Highway 26 near Banks sent three people to the hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries. Authorities said 18-yearold Zacharry Olson of Banks was traveling eastbound in the wrong lane when the accident occurred. Banks was cited for driving under the influence, assault in the third degree and assault in the fourth degree. Twenty-three-year-old Jamie France of Redmond was driving the other vehicle. Authorities said she was also cited for driving under the influence.
School wiped clean after students sickened BEAVERTON (AP) — Rock Creek Elementary has been wiped clean.

Yes, you can save How’s your health? Not your physical fitness, but your financial well-being. For most of us, how much we earn tells us how we’re “feeling” financially. But your income is only one part of the equation. How much of your income do you actually keep? Not very much, I’ll bet. Your income is low, you say; you’ve got bills to pay. Gas prices are sky-high, grocery costs are through the roof — who can possibly save? EVERYDAY M y CHEAPSKATE a n swe r : You can. Here are simple things yo u ca n do today to ge t going: SELL OUT. Go Mary through Hunt eve r y c u p board, closet and drawer. If you aren’t using it regularly, get rid of it on eBay or have the mother of all yard sales. A typical sale could raise $500 or more when you start to unload your white elephants. There! You’ve cleaned out the house and you’ve got a pile of cash to show for it. GI VE I T UP . I’ve said it a hundred times already, and here it is again: You’ve got to say goodbye to that little vice (fancy coffee drinks, c i ga re t te s, ca n dy ba rs, bottled water). It can really add up — saving $5 a day gives you $1,825 a year. BANK TH E RAIS E. The next time you get a raise (or a bonus), save at least half. L e t’s s ay t h a t ra i s e improves your monthly take-home by $200. If you save half at even 1 percent interest and do that for the next 10 years, that money you didn’t miss (because you never saw it) will grow into $12,725. SA VE THE PA YMENT. When you pay off something big such as a car loan, take the amount you were paying every month and add it to your savings instead. A $330 monthly payment to yourself over five years at 6 percent turns into $23,470 — enough to buy your next car in cash. DO SOMETHING M A J O R . Once you catch the savings bug, do something grand. Get rid of one car if you can. Or move to a cheaper area. A big change could send your savings to the moon. H er e ’ s t h e t h i n g ab o ut s aving: At first it’s going to feel like a hardship (like dieting, all you can think about is what you can’t have). During my worst years, when I was spending with reckless abandon and racking up debt, I would have told you with all sincerity that we didn’t have enough money to save. But once I jumped into saving (just a few dollars at first), something amazing happened: I began to feel a new sense of self-worth, d i g n i ty a n d c a l m . T h e more I saved, the better it felt. This will happen to you, too. And as you watch your balance grow, prepare for a s u r p r i s e — s av i n g w i l l become addictive. Try it.

WORLD D I G E S T LA-area fire wanes; dry conditions remain GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters said Sunday they continued their steady progress in surrounding a wildfire near Los Angeles that destroyed several homes. The Los Angeles County Fire Department said the fire was 78 percent contained, with full containment expected Wednesday. Meanwhile, hundreds of residents who fled the blaze in suburbs about 25 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles returned home Saturday evening as red-flag warnings of extremely dangerous fire conditions expired. Officials cautioned that bone-dry winter conditions remain a threat for the region. The dry conditions statewide led Gov. Jerry Brown to formally declare a drought Friday in order to seek a range of federal assistance.
Elderly man shoots wife at Nev. hospital RENO, Nev. (AP) — Jailers were keeping an 88-year-old man on a suicide watch after he was arrested for allegedly opening fire at a Carson City hospital and critically wounding his wife, authorities said. William Dresser was arrested Sunday after firing one shot with a small-caliber semi-automatic handgun that struck his wife in the chest at Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said. No other injuries were reported. The woman was a patient in a
third-floor room when she was shot around 11:30 a.m. The woman’s injuries are considered life-threatening, and she was transferred to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Furlong said. Her name and age were not immediately released. Dresser was booked into the Carson City Jail on suspicion of attempted murder and was on suicide watch, the sheriff said. His bail was set at $225,000, he said. Dresser, who recently bought the gun, came to his wife’s room in the rehabilita-
tion ward, where she was alone, and shot her in the chest, Furlong said. No details of why she was admitted to the hospital w e r e released, but officials don’t suspect foul play. Hospital security William p e rs o n n e l Dresser and state Department of Corrections officials at the scene quickly detained the
Bombings kill 28 in Iraq as offensive continues BAGHDAD (AP) — A series of bombings in central Iraq killed 28 people Monday, as a government official claimed that al-Qaida-linked fighters have dug in to a city they seized last month and possess enough heavy weapons to storm into the country’s capital. The bombings, mainly in Baghdad targeting marketplaces and court buildings, came as the army presses an all-out offensive announced Sunday to retake the area, but has come up against heavy resistance. Since late December, members of Iraq’s al-Qaida branch — known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant — have taken over parts of Ramadi, the capital of the largely Sunni western province of Anbar. They also control the center of the nearby city of Fallujah, along with other non-alQaida groups that also oppose the Shiite-led government.
Taliban bomb kills 13 near Pakistani army HQ RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) — A Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up near Pakistan’s main military headquarters Monday, killing 13 people just a day after the militants killed 26 troops inside an army compound in the northwest of the country, officials said. The two-day barrage against the Pakistani military underscores the challenges it faces in dealing with a stubborn insurgency in tribal that border regions Afghanistan, which has already resulted in thousands of troops dead and wounded. The twin assaults, both claimed by the Pakistani Taliban, will also put pressure on the right-leaning civilian government that has said repeatedly it would rather negotiate with militants than use military force to end the conflict. Monday’s attack took place early in the morning in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, next to the capital of Islamabad, just a few hundred yards from the outer wall surrounding the Pakistani military’s headquarters. Eight of the dead were members of the security forces, the Pakistani military said in a statement.
The shooting comes about a month after a gunman walked into a medical facility next to the Reno hospital and killed one doctor and shot another before committing suicide. Alan Oliver Frazier, 51, made it clear in a suicide note that he was targeting physicians at Urology Nevada in the Dec. 17 attack. Frazier complained of pain and fatigue for years in an Internet chat room and to neighbors— symptoms he blamed on a botched vasectomy that the center disputes.

Access to the records is governed by the Presidential Records Act, which says the records may be requested by the public five years after the presidential administration ends. The library says all requests must be in a written format — email, mail or fax — and must state that the request is being made under the Freedom of Information Act. The library, which opened last year on the Southern Methodist University campus, notes the process will take time and cited factors including the volume and complexity of presidential records.

A woman who answered a phone call at a listing for a William Dresser in nearby Minden said she was too busy to talk Sunday afternoon. Dresser has no known prior criminal history in the Carson City area, Furlong said.

Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, fourth from right, takes part in an annual wreath laying ceremony at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington on Monday.
Parades, marches, service projects to honor MLK ATLANTA (AP) — The nation paused to remember Martin Luther King Jr. Monday with parades, marches and service projects. King was born Jan. 15, 1929, and the federal holiday is the third Monday in January. In Atlanta, a service was planned at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King was pastor. In Memphis, Tenn., where King was assassinated, an audio recording of an interview with King would be played at the National Civil Rights Museum. The recording sheds new light on a phone call President John F. Kennedy
made to King’s wife more than 50 years ago. Historians generally agree Kennedy’s phone call to Coretta Scott King expressing concern over her husband’s arrest in October 1960 — and Robert Kennedy’s work behind the scenes to get King released — helped JFK win the White House. In Ann Arbor, Mich., activist and entertainer Harry Belafonte planned to deliver the keynote address for the 28th annual Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium on Monday morning at the University of Michigan’s Hill Auditorium.
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The Democratic mayor of a town severely flooded by Superstorm Sandy has ratcheted up her allegation that Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s administration tied recovery funds to her support for a prime real estate project and said that she turned over documents to a federal prosecutor investigating his staff. While a spokesman for Christie called Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s claims “categorically false,” Zimmer said she met with federal prosecutors in Newark for several hours Sunday at their request and turned over a journal and other documents. On Saturday, Zimmer said Christie’s lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno, and a top community development official separately told her that recovery funds would flow to her city if she expedited the commercial development project by the New Yorkbased Rockefeller Group. On Sunday, she went a step further and said on CNN’s “State of the Union with Candy Crowley” that Guadagno told her that the request “was a direct message from the governor.” “The lieutenant governor pulled me aside and said, essentially, ‘You’ve got to move forward with the Rockefeller project. This project is really important to
Scientists hope comet-chaser probe wakes up BERLIN (AP) — Europe’s Rosetta probe is due to wake up from years of hibernation Monday, but scientists face an agonizing wait of several hours until the first signal reaches Earth and they can celebrate a new milestone in their unprecedented mission to land a spacecraft on a comet. Dormant systems on the unmanned spacecraft were scheduled to switch back on at 8 a.m. PST in preparation for the final stage of its decade-long mission to rendezvous with comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko. They had been powered down in 2011 to conserve energy, leaving scientists in the dark about the probe’s fate until now. “We don’t know the status of the spacecraft,” said Paolo Ferri, head of mission operations at the European Space Agency. “There is a possibility that we’re not going to hear anything. Two-and-a-half years are a long time. We’re talking about sophisticated electronics and mechanics. We’ve taken all possible precautions for this not to

Syrian opposition issues ultimatum on peace talks BEIRUT (AP) — Syria’s main Westernbacked opposition group said Monday that Iran must commit publicly by 7 p.m. GMT to withdraw its “troops and militias” from Syria and abide by a 2012 transitional roadmap, or else the U.N. should withdraw its invitation for Tehran to take part in a peace conference. The Syrian National Coalition said if those conditions are not met by the deadline, then it will not attend the socalled Geneva 2 conference that is
scheduled to begin Wednesday. The U.N. issued a last-minute invitation late Sunday to Iran, a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, prompting the Coalition to threaten to sit out the peace talks and throwing the entire Geneva conference into doubt. The negotiations are intended to bring together for the first time representatives of President Bashar Assad’s government and members of the Western-backed opposition that is try-
ing to overthrow him. The conference aims to broker a political resolution to a conflict that has killed more than 130,000 people and touched off the worst humanitarian crisis in decades. In its statement,the Coalition called on Iran to make a “clear public commitment” to withdraw all of its troops and militias from Syria, commit to all the terms of a 2012 roadmap for Syria agreed to by world powers that includes a transitional government with full executive powers.
the governor.’ And she said that she had been with him Friday night and that this was a direct message from the governor,” Zimmer recalled Guadagno saying. Christie spokesman Colin Reed issued a statement Sunday saying, “Mayor Zimmer’s categorization about her conversation in Hoboken is categorically false.” Zimmer said in a statement Sunday night that she will “provide any requested information and testify under oath about the facts of what happened when the Lieutenant Governor came to Hoboken and told me that Sandy aid would be contingent on moving forward with a private development project.” Hoboken was nearly swallowed by the Hudson River during Sandy, with three of its electrical substations and most of its firehouses flooded, businesses and homes submerged. Zimmer said she didn’t reveal the conversation with Guadagno until now because she feared no one would believe her. But, with Hoboken having received just $342,000 out of $1.8 billion in Sandy recovery aid from the state in the first funding round, she said, she is speaking out in hopes her city won’t be shut out in a second funding wave, when the state is due to disperse $1.4 billion. Hoboken has also received millions in federal aid.
Jailed American pleas for U.S. help PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — An American missionary who has been jailed in North Korea for more than a year appeared before reporters Monday and appealed to the U.S. government to do its best to secure his release. The missionary, Kenneth Bae, made the comments at what he called a press conference held at his own request. He was under guard during the appearance. It is not unusual for prisoners in North Korea to say after their release that they spoke in similar situations under duress. Wearing a gray cap and inmate’s uniform with the number 103 on his chest, Bae spoke in Korean during the brief appearance, which was attended by The Associated Press and a few other foreign media in Pyongyang. Bae, the longest-serving American detainee in North Korea in recent years, expressed hope that the U.S. government will do its best to win his release. He said he had not been treated badly in confinement. “I believe that my problem can be solved by close cooperation and agreement between the American government and the government of this country,” he said. Bae was arrested in November 2012 while leading a tour group and accused of crimes against the state before being sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. He was moved to a hospital last summer in poor health. He made an apology Monday and said he had committed anti-government acts.

is to provide instantaneous information to be able to disrupt any plot that may be taking place.” Under the surveillance program, the NSA gathers phone numbers called and the length of conversations, but not the content of calls. Obama said the NSA sometimes needs to tap those records to find people linked to suspected terrorists. But he said eventually the bulk data should be stored somewhere out of the government’s hands. That could mean finding a way for phone companies to store the records, though some companies have balked at the idea, or it could mean creating a third-party entity to hold the records. Feinstein, D-Calif., said many Americans don’t understand that threats persist a dozen years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. “New bombs are being devised. New terrorists are emerging, new groups. Actually, a new level of viciousness. And I think we need to be prepared,” Feinstein said. The lawmakers did praise the president for his defense of the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs. “First, I thought it was very important that the president laid out no abuses, this was not an illegal program, it wasn’t a rogue agency,” Rogers said. The surveillance programs have been under fire since former NSA analyst Edward Snowden absconded with an estimated 1.7 million documents related to surveillance and other NSA operations, giving the documents to journalists around the world. Revelations in the documents sparked a furor over whether Americans have been giving up privacy protections in exchange for intelligencegathering on terrorism. Congress will have a lot of say in how and whether Obama’s ideas are carried out. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has

national inspectors were on hand to witness the stoppage before leaving to monitor the suspension of enrichment at Fordo, another uranium enrichment site in central Iran. The official IRNA news agency said Iran also started Monday to convert part of its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium to oxide, which can be used to produce nuclear fuel but is difficult to reconvert for weapons use. Under the Geneva deal, Iran agreed to halt its 20 percent enrichment program but continue enrichment up to 5 percent. It also agreed to convert half of its stockpile
of 20 percent enriched uranium to oxide and dilute the remaining half to 5 percent over a period of six months. In addition to the enrichment measures, the six-month interim deal also commits Iran to opening its nuclear program to greater U.N. inspections and providing more details on its nuclear activities and facilities. Iran will also refrain from commissioning its under-construction 40 megawatt heavy water reactor in Arak, central Iran. The U.S., European Union and other world powers are studying the U.N. nuclear agency report, said U.S.
State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf. She said the U.S. would have further comment “after all parties have had the opportunity to review the report.” In exchange for the nuclear curbs, Iran receives a halt to new sanctions and easing of existing sanctions. Measures targeting petrochemical products, gold and other precious metals, the auto industry, passenger plane parts and services will be lifted immediately. The Geneva deal allows Iran to continue exporting crude oil in its current level, which is reported to be about 1 million barrels a day.

The idea didn’t go over too well with some, who thought dredging or clearing grass, cormorants or beavers from the lake was the answer. Some thought the state should help. “I don’t think septic tanks are the main issue,” said Jan Morin, a homeowner on the lake. “I think the main issue is the state not helping the Lakeside owners.” Morin said there were other causes for the bluegreen algae blooms, such as

He thought a district to enhance the lake’s water quality was a good idea, but would take some legwork. “There’s a lot of work that goes into it,” Ross said. “The conceptual phase is a daunting process that takes concentration and resolution to succeed. I think it’s a great idea.” One of the first steps to cleaning up the lake, possibly enforced by the special district, could be to require septic system inspections.

proposed to end the NSA’s bulk data collection program, putting him at odds with Feinstein. Leahy said senators would have many questions for Attorney General Eric Holder when he comes before the Judiciary Committee next week. Yet Leahy suggested Sunday he might not challenge the president on allowing the NSA’s surveillance programs to continue. “No, I think we have a way that we could do this, but it’s not a question of fighting the president,” Leahy said on Fox. “The question is, what is Congress going to do on this? ... I just think that there should be an oversight. “I mean, I was a prosecutor for eight years; I believe in going after the bad guys,” Leahy said. “And I realize this is an entirely different level of the bad guys that I went after, but you still have to have some checks and balances, or you have a government that can run amok.” The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Michael McCaul, said that Obama was moving in the right direction. “I think what gave most Americans heartburn was that this data was being stored under the NSA and warehoused under the government,” said McCaul, RTexas. But McCaul allowed, “I think it’s very difficult to decide who has the capability to store and use this data.” Sen. Mark Udall, another critic of the NSA surveillance program, praised the president’s ideas and said the limitations Obama proposed mean that “we won’t collect every Americans’ phone records almost every day.” Udall, D-Colo. and a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Congress has a real motivation to make meaningful changes to the program because authority to conduct the spying under post-9/11 laws expires next year. “So we have real motivation to get it right and to work together,” Udall said. Feinstein and Rogers appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Rogers also appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and CBS’ “Face the Nation.” McCaul appeared on ABC. Leahy appeared on “Fox News Sunday.” Udall appeared on CBS.

NFL Playoffs Pacific wins with Super Bowl: Denver against Seattle foul shot THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
THE WORLD Pacific’s Brittany Figueroa hit a free throw with no time showing on the clock to lift the Pirates to a 29-28 win over visiting Camas Valley, Pacific’s first win of the Skyline League season. Figueroa was fouled driving to the hoop in a tie game and made the first free throw, coach Ben Stallard said. The Pirates managed to come from behind despite star Riley Engdahl fouling out late. Caitlin Happeny and Marina Byrne each hit a free throw to tie the game before Figueroa’s final foul shot. Pacific improved to 1-4 in league play and 2-9 overall. “We’ve been on the cusp all year,” Stallard said. The Pirates visit New Hope on Friday and Powers on Saturday. Yoncalla 51, Powers 25: The Eagles outscored the visiting Cruisers 27-12 in the first half on the way to the easy win. “They’re tough,” Powers coach Ben Baldwin said. “Overall, I’m pretty happy. We played them tough. We never quit.” Only three Cruisers scored, led by Rebecca Standley with 14 points. Brianne Joslyn had 24 points and Karen Wickman added 13 for the Eagles. Powers was playing without Chelsie Fandel, who sat out with a concussion. Baldwin hopes to get her back next weekend for a pair of important games, at home against Elkton and Pacific.
Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos and Richard Sherman’s Seattle Seahawks were the NFL’s best all season, so it’s fitting that they’ll meet in the Super Bowl. Nobody scored as many points or gained as many yards as the Broncos. Nobody allowed as few points or gave up as few yards as the Seahawks. And nobody won as many games as those clubs, either. What a way to finish the season. When the AFC champion Broncos (15-3) play the NFC champion Seahawks (15-3) on Feb. 2 at what could be a chilly MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., it will be the first Super Bowl since 1991 pitting the league’s highest-scoring team in the regular season against
the team that was scored on the least, according to STATS. It’s also only the second time in the last 20 Super Bowls that the No. 1 seed in each conference reached the NFL championship game. “It will be a great matchup,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “I think it’s an extraordinary opportunity to go against a guy that set all the records in the history of the game.” That, of course, would be Manning, the 37-year-old quarterback who is the only four-time NFL MVP — and no one would be surprised if No. 5 arrives the night before the Super Bowl. He established marks by throwing for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards, helping Denver lead the league with 37.9 points and 457.3 yards per game. Manning is an inescapable pitchman, too, seen
Sunday after Sunday during TV commercials. Hey, there he was selling cars during breaks in the broadcast of the NFC title game. Expect even more face time now. Manning’s oft-told tale, certain to be repeated a million times in the coming days, includes his comeback from a series of surgical procedures to his neck, attempts to cure problems that led him to sit out the entire 2011 season. That also led the Indianapolis Colts to send him packing despite two Super Bowl appearances with that club, including a title in 2007. “It’s certainly well-documented what my journey the past 1 2 ⁄2 years has been,” said Manning, who could become the first starting QB to lead two franchises to titles, “but this team’s overcome a lot of obstacles this year.” None more serious, perhaps,
than coach John Fox’s absence for about a month because of a heart operation. Other issues included the fax faux pas that precipitated the departure of pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, star linebacker Von Miller’s drug-testing suspension and season-ending knee injury, and the losses of a handful of other starters on defense. “Being in my 16th season, going to my third Super Bowl — I know how hard it is to get there,” Manning said. He threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-16 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game Sunday. Manning’s offense scored on six consecutive possessions, accounted for more than 500 yards, had zero turnovers and zero sacks. SEE SUPER BOWL | B4
Nonleague Reedsport 52, Oakridge 32: The Braves put away the visiting Warriors in the closing minutes, outscoring Oakridge 18-4 in the fourth quarter. But it wasn’t a pretty game, Reedsport coach Stu Richardson said. The teams combined to commit nearly 40 fouls and Reedsport suffered a letdown after its emotional win over Myrtle Point on Friday night, he said. Kayla Doane had 29 points and Gabby White added 12 for the Braves. Kyla Flack had 10 points to lead Oakridge. Stayton 64, North Bend 41: The visiting Eagles dominated the first half to win the nonleague clash over the short-handed Bulldogs. North Bend played without Shalah Collicott, Damie Zomerschoe and Alex Wilkinson. Freshman Codi Wallace had a great game with four 3-pointers and 17 points and sophomore Gabby Hobson added a dozen. Alyssa Lindmann had 13 points for the Eagles. North Bend returns to Far West League play Tuesday with a tough road trip to face BrookingsHarbor. Gold Beach 52, Illinois Valley 31: Eliza Lander scored 10 points and Hailey Timeus added eight to lead the Panthers to the nonleague win over the Cougars at Gold Beach.
BOYS BASKETBALL Skyline League Yoncalla 46, Powers 38: The Cruisers fell behind 14-4 after the first quarter and weren’t able to make up the entire difference. “We were playing catch-up the entire time,” Powers coach Matt Shorb said. “We cut it to four at one point in the fourth quarter, but we just never got it over the hump. “I was proud of the kids for how they battled back.” The Eagles, who got 16 points from Zach Van Loon, shot 8-for10 from the line in the fourth quarter to secure the win. Shorb said he was happy with his team’s balanced scoring, led by Jackson Stallard with 10 points, but added slow starts are becoming a concern. “That’s two games in a row we had four points in the first quarter,” he said. “We talked about that after the game. We can’t afford to be starting slow every night.” Camas Valley 51, Pacific 37: The Pirates had a solid effort in the second half, but couldn’t catch up against the Hornets, described by Pacific coach Ben Stallard as “the best team in the league right now.” “We started off slow offensively,” Stallard said. “Defensively, we played well.” SEE RECAP | B2

Seattle’s Doug Baldwin (89) and Golden Tate (81) celebrate after the Seahawks beat the 49ers 23-17 in the NFC championship game Sunday.
Defense carries Seahawks past 49ers SEATTLE (AP) — Pete Carroll knows all about successfully chasing championships. Yet this pursuit is particularly sweet. “It’s quite a magical moment,” Carroll said Sunday after his Seattle Seahawks won the NFC title. “You can’t really grasp the moment. Did we really do this?” Yep. The Seahawks and their 12th Man are headed for the Big Apple and the Super Bowl. “Every ounce of your energy, every moment spent watching film has been worth it, because we made it,” said All-Pro cor-
nerback Richard Sherman. His game-saving deflection in the end zone with 22 seconds left was caught by teammate Malcolm Smith to clinch the 2317 win over division rival San Francisco on Sunday night. “It’s fantastic.” A fantastic matchup, too. Seattle will meet Denver (15-3) for the NFL title in two weeks in the New Jersey Meadowlands. It’s the first trip to the big game for the Seahawks (15-3) since they lost to Pittsburgh after the 2005 season.
The conference champs had the best records in the league this year, the second time the top seeds have gotten to the Super Bowl in 20 seasons. It also is a classic confrontation of Denver’s record-setting offense led by Peyton Manning against the NFL’s stingiest defense. Denver opened as a 1-point favorite over Seattle on the Glantz-Culver Line. "We wouldn’t have it any other way,” said Sherman, who went on a rant about how 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree is a
‘sorry receiver.’ “They’re an unbelievable, record-setting offense with a Hall of Fame quarterback. That’s as tough a game as you can get in the Super Bowl. The No. 1 defense against the No. 1 offense. It doesn’t happen like this too often.” That top-ranked defense forced three fourth-quarter turnovers, and Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse on fourth down for the winning points.

Manning leads Broncos over New England DENVER (AP) — Only three years ago, Peyton Manning could barely grip a football, let alone throw one. A Super Bowl quarterback? Nobody had ever overcome those kind of odds. On Sunday, he wrote the next chapter in one of football’s most remarkable comeback stories, outplaying Tom Brady to lead the Broncos to the Super Bowl for the first time since John Elway took the snaps in Denver some 15 years ago. Manning crafted yet another impeccable masterpiece, throwing for 400 yards in a 26-16 victory over Brady and the New England Patriots. “Being in my 16th season, going to my third Super Bowl, I know how hard it is to get there,” Manning said. He’ll try to become the first starting quarterback to lead two different teams to titles. On his way out of Indy, Manning’s comeback attempt began a while after his fourth neck surgery, when he tried to play catch with an old college buddy, Todd Helton, who then played for the Colorado Rockies. The first pass left Manning’s hand and fluttered to the ground. Helton thought Manning was joking. He wasn’t. Fast forward three years and

Denver tight end Jacob Tamme (84) celebrates his touchdown with teammate Eric Decker during the first half Sunday. there he was, on a splendid, 63degree day in Denver, winging it to the receiving corps Elway put together when he returned to the Broncos as a front-office executive. One of those receivers, Demaryius Thomas, caught seven passes for 134 yards and a touchdown to cap off one of Manning’s two 7-minute-plus touchdown drives. “To keep Tom Brady on the sideline is a good thing,” Manning said. “That’s something you try to do when you’re playing the Patriots.”
After kneeling down to seal the victory, Manning stuffed the ball into his helmet, then ran to the 30-yard line to shake hands with Brady. A bit later in the locker room, he celebrated with his father, Archie, and brothers Cooper and Eli. Asked what pregame advice he gave his younger brother, Cooper said: “Go ahead and pretend you’re a 10-year-old playing in the front yard. That’s what it looked like” today. Indeed, Manning did whatever he wanted. And though he threw for 400 yards, it was more dink-
and-dunk than a fireworks show in this, the 15th installment between the NFL’s two best quarterbacks of a generation. (Manning is 5-10, but now 2-1 in AFC title games). Manning set up four field goals by Matt Prater and put his stamp on this one with the long, meticulous touchdown drives. He geared down the no-huddle, hurry-up offense that helped him set records for touchdown passes and yardage this season and made the Broncos the highest-scoring team in history. The result: 93- and 80-yard touchdown drives that were the two longest, time-wise, of the season for the Broncos (15-3). The Broncos held the ball for 35:44. They were 7-for-13 on third-down conversions. Manning capped the second long drive with a 3-yard pass to Thomas, who got inside the overmatched Alfonzo Dennard and left his feet to make the catch. It gave Denver a 20-3 lead midway through the third quarter. From there, it was catch-up time for Brady and the Pats (13-5), and they were not built for that — at least not this year. “We got in a hole there,” Brady said. “It was just too much to dig our way out.” SEE AFC | B4

Orlando Magic's Arron Afflalo (4) gets off a shot between Boston Celtics' Jeff Green, left, and Brandon Bass, right, during the first half in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday.
Magic top Celtics to end 10-game losing streak ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Arron Afflalo had 20 points and 13 rebounds, Tobias Harris added 18 points and the Orlando Magic snapped a season-high 10-game losing streak with a 93-91 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night. After several ties in the fourth quarter, Harris hit a pair of free throws with 10.1 seconds remaining to give Orlando the victory. The win also ends 10game regular-season losing streak to the Celtics. Glen Davis added 17 points and Jameer Nelson 16 for Orlando. Boston has lost nine straight on the road and 11 of 12 overall. Jeff Green led the Celtics with 22 points, and Avery Bradley and Kris Humphries added 18 apiece. Rajon Rondo had six points and four assists in his second game back from a torn ACL. Suns 117, Nuggets 103: Channing Frye scored a season-high 30 points before sitting out the final 91⁄2 minutes to watch Phoenix wrap
up its romp over Denver. Frye, who missed all of last season for treatment of an enlarged heart, made 12 of 16 shots, 5 of 7 3-pointers, to fall three points shy of his career high. Markieff Morris scored 16 and Goran Dragic 15 for the Suns, who never trailed and improved to 3-0 against Denver this season with one game to play. Anthony Randolph scored a season-best 19 for the Nuggets, who have lost four of five and were without guard Randy Foye because of a stomach virus. Evan Fournier, Ty Lawson and Wilson Chandler added 17 points apiece for Denver. Thunder 108, Kings 93: Kevin Durant scored 30 points to lead Oklahoma City past Sacramento. Durant, coming off a career-high 54 points Friday against Golden State, shot 10 for 15 from the field and had nine assists. He scored
at least 30 points for the seventh straight game. Serge Ibaka added 20 points and Reggie Jackson had 16 for the Thunder, who won their third straight. Isaiah Thomas scored a career-high 38 points for the Kings, but he slowed in the second half as the Thunder pulled away. DeMarcus Cousins added 16 points and 14 rebounds for Sacramento. Rudy Gay scored just six points for the Kings and was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the fourth quarter. Lakers 112, Raptors 106: Nick Young returned from suspension to score 29 points, Pau Gasol had 22 and Los Angeles beat Toronto for just its third win in 15 games. Young scored 14 points in the fourth quarter as the Lakers overcame a 19-point first-half deficit. They won back-to-back games for the first time since beating Memphis on Dec. 17 and Minnesota on Dec. 20. Ryan Kelly scored 17 in his first career start and
Kendall Marshall had 10 points and 11 assists. The Lakers are 16-25 at the season’s midpoint. DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points, Kyle Lowry had 21 and Patrick Patterson 17 for Toronto, which had won six straight at home. Spurs 110, Bucks 82: Patty Mills had 20 points, Tim Duncan had 11 points and 13 rebounds in limited action, and San Antonio kept Milwaukee winless in the new year. Marco Belinelli scored 14 points, Jeff Ayres and Nando De Colo had 13 points apiece, and Kawhi Leonard added 11 points in 21 minutes for San Antonio. Brandon Knight scored 21 Giannis points, Antetokounmpo added 11 points and John Henson had 10 points and 11 rebounds for Milwaukee, which has lost nine straight. San Antonio was without starters Tony Parker and Tiago Splitter, former starter Danny Green and 3-point specialist Matt Bonner.
“I felt like in the first half, if we could have thrown it into the ocean, it would have been close,” Stallard said. Cameron Brock had 17 points and Cole Kreutzer added 11 for the Pirates. Ryan Gallagher led the Hornets with 14 points.
Nonleague Oakridge 51, Reedsport 42: A late rally came up short for the Braves in their home loss. “It’s the same story, we can’t score points,” Reedsport coach Dan Kenagy said. “All night long, we were getting shots. We just could not make shots.” The Braves did rally late, with 14 points in the last four minutes, when they hit five of their seven 3-pointers of the game. But The Warriors’ lead was too big to overcome. Gerry Snyder had 18 points to lead Oakridge. Reedsport got 12 points by Mike Mitchell. Reedsport did have nine different players with points.

Portland blazing through Texas DALLAS (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers no longer are chasing the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA’s Western Conference. LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and 12 rebounds, and the Trail Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks 127-111 on Saturday night to pull even with the Spurs at 31-9. The Trail Blazers have won five consecutive games, including a 109-100 victory at San Antonio on Friday. “I was really proud of the way our team played, especially on the heels of an emotional win in San Antonio,” coach Terry Stotts said. “Our resolve, defensively, I thought was very good and got us into a position to have a large lead.” The lead reached 38 points at 111-73 with 9:43 to play. A 25-2 surge against Portland’s bench brought Dallas within 15 points with 4:38 remaining before the starters returned to restore order. The Trail Blazers,the NBA’s highest-scoring team, reached 30 points in the first quarter for the 14th time in 2013-14, and 100 points in three quarters for the fourth time. “We are just playing great basketball right now,” Aldridge said. “Whenever guys guard the way they can, this team is good.” Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 18 points in 21 minutes.

Dallas Mavericks' Samuel Dalembert (1) of Haiti defends against Portland Trail Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge (12) during a game Saturday in Dallas. The Trail Blazers won 127-111. Damian Lillard (14 points, 10 assists) each recorded a double-double. “The first three quarters were beyond embarrassing,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “We were poor on offense,too. We weren’t playing together. We weren’t helping each other. “You do that against a high-level quality team like Portland, they’re going to make you pay a heavy price.” Portland outrebounded Dallas 55-30, scored 60 points in the paint and had 22 second-chance points. Nicolas Batum shot 6 for 7 and scored 15 of his 21 points in the first quarter as the Trail Blazers opened a 35-23 lead. “They were double-teaming LaMarcus,” Batum said, “so the other four guys around him moved around to get open. We’re a shooting team.” Portland shot 51 percent (46 for 90) for the game, including 59 percent (26 for 44) for a 71-52 halftime lead.
The Trail Blazers’ defense also was superb, holding the Mavericks to 39 percent shooting (26 for 66) while running up a 104-70 lead after three quarters. Portland had 30 fast-break points to Dallas’ five. “They’re obviously a tough team to defend,” Nowitzki said. “They have LaMarcus on the block and they have shooters out there. They really got whatever they wanted for three quarters and they were very good.” Carlisle found a silver lining in the fourth quarter, when the Mavericks outscored the Trail Blazers 41-23. “The guys that were in there in the fourth quarter really fought,” he said. “I’m going to find guys that will fight and get them in the game, simple as that.” Jae Crowder scored all 13 of his points in the fourth quarter, and DeJuan Blair had 11 of his 13. The Mavericks’ Devin
Harris played 17 minutes and scored six points in his first game this season following toe surgery. 1 Harris played the first 3 ⁄2 of his 10 NBA seasons with Dallas, and re-signed with the team last summer, but missed the first 41 games. He received a standing ovation when he entered the game with 3:22 remaining in the first quarter. Harris missed his first two free throws, but hit a long 2-point field goal at the buzzer later in the quarter. “I actually like what I saw,” Nowitzki said. “We’re looking forward to getting him out there more and more and playing at a high level.” Portland’s lead grew to 18 in the second quarter, but the Mavericks battled back within 54-46 with an 18-8 run. With the Trail Blazers’ starting lineup back in the game, they scored 17 of the final 23 points in the second quarter. Aldridge and Batum each had 17 first-half points.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — If Bob and Mike Bryan could put any positive spin on their earliest exit from the Australian Open in 11 years, it’s that their loss shows how competitive the doubles game has become — and perhaps how wrong John McEnroe was in his assessment of it. The Bryans, the tops seeds and defending champions, lost in the third round Monday to American Eric Butorac and South African Raven Klaasen 7-6 (9), 6-4. “We like coming down here and starting the year hot and I don’t think we played terribly,” Mike Bryan said. “It’s just the margins are really small.” The brothers have been practically invincible at the Australian Open — six of their 15 Grand Slam titles have come here, and they’ve reached the final nine of the last 10 years. They haven’t lost before the quarterfinals since 2003. But they said the loss illustrates the depth of the doubles game and how much tougher the top teams have become thanks to better conditioning, equipment, strategies and coaching. “I feel like the game’s being played at a pretty high level by a lot of good teams,” Bob Bryan said. “The old days of just enjoying the pro tennis lifestyle without fully committing yourself is completely in the past.” His comments stand in stark contrast to the opinions
voiced by McEnroe last month in an interview with The Times of London, in which he questioned why doubles is still being played at the majors and said today’s doubles players are “the slow guys who aren’t quick enough to play singles.” “Obviously,we didn’t agree with what he said,” Bob Bryan said. His brother added: “I’m pretty sure it was a rogue interview where he just went on a rant.” The Bryans said they spoke with McEnroe for about 45 minutes about the interview and characterized it as a “good conversation,” though they don’t think they changed his mind. The Bryans were the second marquee team taken out by Butorac and Klaasen, who have only been partners for four months. They defeated crowd favorites Lleyton Hewitt and Pat Rafter, who came out of retirement at the age of 41 to play doubles at the Australian Open, in the first round. Butorac joked that he and Klaasen almost never became a team after a potential setup — sort of like a blind date — went badly. “Someone actually suggested, ‘I think Raaven would be a good partner for you,’” Butorac said. “I went to go watch his match, thinking this could be my guy, and he was awful. And I was like forget that.” Now they’re into the quarters of a Grand Slam.

Sports NFC Seahawks hold on for victory From Page B1 Moments after Sherman tipped Colin Kaepernick’s pass to Smith for the interception, the NFL leader in picks did a CenturyLink Leap into the stands behind the end zone, saluting the Seahawks’ raucous fans. With 12th Man flags waving everywhere — receiver Golden Tate paraded around the field with one — and “New York, New York” blaring over the loudspeakers, CenturyLink Field rocked like never before. “This is really special,” said Carroll, who won two national championships at Southern California and has turned around the Seahawks in four seasons in charge. “It would really be a mistake to not remember the connection and the relationship between this football team and the 12th Man and these fans. It’s unbelievable.” San Francisco (14-5) led 17-13 when Wilson, given a free play as Aldon Smith jumped offside, hurled the ball to Kearse, who made a leaping catch in the end zone. “He’s tremendous catching the football,” Wilson said. “He’s got great hands, and he’s got that desire, you know? So that showed up tonight.” Steven Hauschka then kicked his third field goal following Kam Chancellor’s pick, and Smith intercepted in the end zone on the 49ers’ final possession. “This feels even sweeter, with the amazing support we have had from the 12th Man,” team owner Paul Allen said, comparing this Super Bowl trip to the previous one. Until Seattle’s top-ranked defense forced a fumble and had two interceptions in the final period, the game was marked by big offensive plays in the second half. That was somewhat shocking considering the strength of both teams’ defenses. And those plays came rapidly. Marshawn Lynch, in full “Beast Mode,” ran over a teammate and then outsped the 49ers to the corner of the end zone for a 40-yard TD, making it 10-10. Kaepernick then was responsible for consecutive 22-yard gains, hitting Crabtree, then rushing to the Seattle 28. His fumble on the next play was recovered by center Jonathan Goodwin, who even lumbered for 2 yards. Anquan Boldin outleapt All-Pro safety Earl Thomas on the next play for a 26-yard touchdown. Then, Doug Baldwin, who played for 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, stepped up — and through San Francisco’s coverage — on a scintillating 69-yard kickoff return that made the stadium shake for the first
AFC Patriots score twice in fourth From Page B1 A team that averaged more than 200 yards on the ground the last three games didn’t have much quickstrike capability. Brady, who threw for most of his 277 yards in comeback mode, actually led the Patriots to a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. But they were a pair of time-consuming, 80-yard drives. The second cut the deficit to 26-16 with 3:07 left, but the Broncos stopped Shane Vereen on the 2-point conversion and the celebration was on in Denver. “Losing is never easy,” Patriots defensive lineman Rob Ninkovich said. “But when you have somebody as talented as (Manning), who puts in as much work and effort, and has done it for so long, it’s a little bit easier to swallow.” The trip to New York will come 15 years after Elway rode off into the sunset with his second straight Super Bowl victory. It’s been tough since then in Denver. Coaching changes. Bad defenses. A
time all day. That set up Hauschka’s 40-yard field goal. And a frantic finish. Seattle took its first lead on Wilson’s throw to Kearse with 13:44 left, and CenturyLink rocked again. The place went silent soon after when Niners AllPro linebacker NaVorro Bowman sustained an ugly left knee injury midway and was carted off. Bowman, who was having a huge game, had forced a fumble at the San Francisco 1, but Lynch recovered. “I never heard him yell like that, or even stay down for a moment,” teammate Patrick Willis said of Bowman. The Seahawks had gotten their first turnover moments earlier when Cliff Avril stripped Kaepernick and Michael Bennett recovered. But Lynch and Wilson botched a handoff on fourth down on the play after Bowman’s injury. It took only two plays for Chancellor to haul in Kaepernick’s underthrow to Boldin, and Hauschka’s 47yarder ended the scoring. But not the excitement. Kaepernick, who rushed for 130 yards, got San Francisco to the Seattle 18 with his arm. But his pass for Crabtree was brilliantly tipped by Sherman to Smith. “We knew it would come down to us in the back end to win this thing,” Sherman said. The final play was similar to last year’s Super Bowl ending, when Kaepernick missed Crabtree in the end zone from the 5 and Baltimore survived. “I had a 1-on-1 matchup with Crab,” Kaepernick said. “I’ll take that every time, against anyone.” Kaepernick rushed for 98 yards in the first half and 130 overall. His 58-yard run set up Anthony Dixon’s 1-yard leap for a TD. San Francisco also got an early 25-yard field goal by Phil Dawson after Wilson fumbled on Seattle’s first snap. Wilson came up with a huge improvisation of his after moments own Kaepernick’s long jaunt. Wilson avoided the rush with some nifty scrambling before spotting Baldwin behind the defense for a 51yard pickup. It resulted in Hauschka’s 32-yard field goal, making it 10-3. Baldwin finished with six receptions for 106 yards. The fourth quarter was all Seattle against the moreexperienced 49ers, who were in their third straight conference championship. But Seattle heads to the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city. Brrr? Not quite: “We are ready,” Bennett said. “Whatever happens, we just want to be there and we don’t care about the weather. We just want to go out there and win.”
quarterback carousel. Finally, Elway came back and, upon his return, slammed the door on the Tim Tebow experiment and signed Manning to a contract, knowing there were risks involved in bringing to town a 30-something quarterback coming off multiple operations to resurrect his career. Even without Von Miller on the field, Elway put enough pieces in place around Manning to move within a game of the championship. Thomas. Wes Welker (four catches, 38 yards). Eric Decker (5-73). Tight end Julius Thomas (8-85). “It’s been a terrific group,” Elway said as he hoisted the AFC championship trophy. “They worked their tail off all year.” Now, Manning gets two weeks to prepare for the Seahawks — an old AFC West rival, who will now be faced with slowing down a quarterback who led his tea m to a re c o rd 6 0 6 points in the regular season, then another 50 in the playoffs. “He’s been remarkable,” said Broncos coach John Fox, off to his second Super Bowl as a head coach. “It’s unprecedented what he did.”

Agnieszka Radwanska makes a backhand return to Garbine Muguruza during their fourth-round match at the Australian Open today.
Sharapova, Serena lose at Open MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka saw another of her main adversaries crash out of the Australian Open today, while topranked Rafael Nadal and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray faced tougherthan-expected matches to advance to the quarterfinals at Melbourne Park. Maria Sharapova joined Serena Williams as fourth-round casualties, leaving Azarenka a potentially easier run to the women’s final. Sharapova was beaten by No. 20 Dominika Cibulkova in the match on Rod Laver Arena immediately before Azarenka defeated Sloane Stephens, the last remaining American in the singles draw. Nadal won three tough sets against Kei Nishikori, while Murray wasted four match points in the third set — including two in the tiebreaker — before dominating the fourth set against lucky loser Stephane Robert of France. Four-time Australian Open champion Roger Federer was never threatened in beating 2008 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 in a late match. He will play Murray in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Third-seeded Sharapova, complaining of a hip ailment, lost 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 after struggling with her serve and making 45 unforced errors. She joins Williams on the sidelines after the topranked American lost in three sets Sunday to Ana Ivanovic, ending 25match winning streak. Sharapova had spent the latter
months of last year on the sidelines with a right shoulder injury, so she wasn’t expecting much of herself. “I have to look at the positives and see where I have come from in four or five months,” Sharapova said. “I haven’t played a lot of tennis. “ Azarenka had a 6-3, 6-2 win over No. 13-seeded Stephens, the player who beat Williams in the quarterfinals here last year and then lost to Azarenka in the semifinals under controversial circumstances. Azarenka took a medical time out when Stephens started to gain momentum in that match, then came back to advance to the final and subsequently win her second Australian Open trophy. She wasn’t getting carried away Monday with the apparent ease of the draw with Williams and Sharapova gone. “The players who beat those players deserve all the credit because they’ve been better, so they are dangerous and they are competitive,” Azarenka said. Azarenka, who is on an 18-match winning streak at Melbourne Park, will next play No. 5 Agnieszka Radwanska, who beat Spain’s Garbine Muguruza 61, 6-3 in the final fourth-round match Monday night. Nadal beat Nishikori 7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (3), though he was broken twice in the third set — getting a time violation from chair umpire Evanthia Asderaki in one of the games. “Normally I have a good self-control on court, and it’s true that the moment was a very critical one,” Nadal said of
the time violation. The 13-time major winner also tripped in the first set and tumbled to the court, then had to go to the locker room to change shoes. Nadal next plays Grigor Dimitrov, who reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam for the first time with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 win over Roberto Bautista Agut. Three-time Australian Open finalist Murray ended the run of Robert, wasting match points in the third set and smashing his racket after the tiebreaker before advancing 6-1, 6-2, 7-6 (6), 6-2. “He’s a fun player to watch, but not a fun player to play,” Murray said of Robert’s assortment of drop shots and deft groundstrokes. The racket smashing was pure frustration. “Losing that set was frustrating because it obviously means you’re out there another 30, 40 minutes at least, when I would preferably had been in the locker room,” Murray said. “My racket bit the dust. Unfortunate for it.” Murray said he’s expecting a tough match against Federer, regardless of the Swiss player’s recent drop in the rankings that has seen him seeded sixth here. “I think last year you could see at periods he was struggling with his back,” Murray said. “And if he’s fully fit, I’ve said all along, he’s always going to be there or thereabouts in the majors, and he’ll give himself opportunities to win more because he’s that good.”
Early odds favor Broncos in Super Bowl LAS VEGAS (AP) — Oddsmakers had trouble picking the favorite in what figures to be one of the most evenly matched — and heavily bet — Super Bowls ever. Bettors knew who they wanted, though, putting early money on Denver and making the Broncos a slight favorite to beat the Seattle Seahawks in most of this city’s legal betting parlors. Denver was favored by 1 point at several books in the early betting, while others had the Broncos as high as a 3-point pick. The move to the Broncos came after some books had initially made the Seahawks as much as a 2point pick in the game. “We’re just trying to figure out what the market will be and get a feel of where money will go,” said Jay Kornegay, who runs the LVH sports book and initially had the Seahawks favored. “At this point it doesn’t take a lot to move the line.” At the South Point sports book, Jimmy Vaccaro was on the phone talking about where he thought the line was going to go when a bettor came to the window and put $25,000 on the Broncos. That moved the game from pick ’em to the Broncos being favored by 1 point, as the
SUPER BOWL From Page B1 Ol’ No. 18’s opposite number in two weeks, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, provides a real contrast as he seeks his — and the Seahawks’ — first Super Bowl trophy. Wilson is 6 inches shorter, 12 years younger, a skilled scrambler in only his second pro season after slipping to the third round of the draft; he’s a guy who had to transfer colleges to get playing time and thought about pursuing a baseball career instead. “Any time you get to the Super Bowl,” Wilson said
odds were adjusted to take in the bet. “Take your best shot,” Vaccaro said. “It’s an intriguing matchup with no clear cut favorite.” Time was just running out
in Seattle’s win over the San Francisco 49ers when the first odds for the Super Bowl were posted at most books. Bettors quickly reacted by putting most of the early money on the Broncos in an initial burst
of enthusiasm for a game so even that some think it will break the record of $98.9 million bet in Nevada’s legal sports books last year. “It’s incredible already, they’re lined up betting this game like it started a half hour from now,” Vaccaro said. “If we don’t do $100 million on this game I’d be really puzzled.” Kornegay said he made the Seahawks a 2-point favorite in his opening line because the Seahawks have a slightly higher power rating than the Broncos and a defense that might be the key in a game played outdoors in what could be cold temperatures. “With the game being in New York and the early forecast for below normal temperatures that favors a defensive team,” he said. “It also favors a running team and that’s certainly an advantage to the Seahawks.” Bettors, though, liked Peyton Manning and his chances of winning another Super Bowl, and they didn’t wait long to bet the Broncos. Sports books adjust the line to try to balance money on each team, and the LVH went from posting Seattle as a 2point favorite to Denver being favored by 1 point in less than an hour.
after Seattle beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 on Sunday, “it’s a special time.” Other members of the Seahawks getting the chance to introduce themselves to a wide audience include rugged running back Marshawn Lynch — fans tossed packs of his favorite candy, Skittles, onto the field after a 40-yard TD run in the third quarter — and Carroll, a rah-rah sort who was a titlewinning college coach at Southern California. And maybe, just maybe, some of Manning’s less-heralded defensive teammates — the ones who clamped down on New England’s running game Sunday and limited
Brady much of the afternoon — will get their chance to shine, too. Seattle’s defense, led by Sherman, allowed an average of 14.4 points and 273.6 yards, and topped the NFL in takeaways. On Sunday, the Seahawks forced three turnovers in the fourth quarter alone, including a victory-sealing interception by Malcolm Smith after Sherman stretched his left hand to tip Colin Kaepernick’s pass away from receiver Michael Crabtree in the end zone. “I’m the best corner in the game,” said Sherman, an AllPro. “When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree,
that’s the result you’re going to get.” Seattle’s only other trip to the big game ended with a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006. Denver will be playing in its seventh Super Bowl and eyeing a third title, to go with those from 1998 and 1999, when current executive John Elway was the QB. In addition to Elway, Manning can match his younger brother Eli with a second Super Bowl crown. Eli, a spectator on Sunday in Denver, won two trophies with the New York Giants, whose stadium hosts this year’s Super Bowl, the first to be played outdoors at a coldweather site.

SWOCC suffers first setback THE WORLD The Southwestern Oregon Community College men’s basketball team suffered its first NWAACC South Region loss Friday, falling 120-105 to Chemeketa in Salem. The Storm is the final unbeaten team in the league standings after winning behind blistering shooting. Chemeketa shot 61 percent overall and 44 percent from 3point range and also got to the foul line 36 times, making 27. “It was a frustrating night all the way around,” SWOCC coach Trevor Hoppe said. “These road games are always tough.” SWOCC still is alone in second place after Portland lost to Lane, the Lakers’ opponent Wednesday. The Lakers shot 49 percent from the floor, but just 26 percent from 3-point range. Amazingly, given their point total, the Lakers had just two players finish in double figures. Dexter Williams Jr. scored 34 points and DJ Anderson had 32. The Lakers also had trouble containing Chemeketa stars Bryce White, who had 35 points and Jalen Schlegel, who had 29. White did a good job getting to the basket, and shot 12 free throws in the game. Schlegel was a solid post player, shooting 12-for-17 from the floor and 5-for-6 from the line. The Lakers scored at least
100 points for the fifth time this year, but also lost for the third time when scoring at least 99 points. The Lakers will try to get back on track at home against Lane on Wedensday. “We get a chance to regroup,” Hoppe said.
WOMEN The Lakers struggled against a tough Chemeketa defense. Aminata Cole was SWOCC’s only player in double figures, with 12 points. “They just played great defense against us and outrebounded us,” SWOCC coach Mike Herbert said. “We just couldn’t get anything going offensively. Chemeketa scored 34 points off 29 SWOCC turnovers. The Storm also shot 8-for-16 from 3-point range while the Lakers made just two treys. McKenzie Benedict had 23 points for the Storm. The Lakers missed a chance to move into fourth place behind the South Region’s three power teams —Lane, Clackamas and Umpqua — heading into a difficult week. SWOCC hosts Lane on Wednesday and then visits vastly improved Portland, which has a win over Clackamas and a sixpoint loss to Lane. They just played great defense against us and outrebounded us. We just couldn’t get anything going offensively.
USC women beat Ducks LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cassie Harberts scored 30 points, leading Southern Cal to a 109-85 win over Oregon on Sunday. USC (13-6, 6-1 Pac-12) used a 12-1 run to break a tie at 13 and the Ducks (9-8, 06) never recovered as the Trojans opened a 50-32 halftime lead. USC shot 64.3 percent from the field and reached the century mark for the first
time since 2007. The scoring total was the most in a game for the Trojans since 1982. Oregon made just 4 of 25 3-point attempts, and suffered a drought of more than seven minutes without a field goal in the second half. Jillian Alleyne had 21 points and 17 rebounds to lead Oregon. Chrishae Rowe added 19 points. Lexi Petersen had 14 points and Drea Toler contributed 12.

Oregon State wins Civil War CORVALLIS (AP) — This time, Oregon State stuck to its game plan the second half. Roberto Nelson scored 13 of his 22 points in the second half and anchored a stellar defensive effort that carried the Beavers to an 80-72 Pac-12 victory over Oregon on Sunday night. Eric Moreland added 15 points, 11 coming from the free throw line and had 13 rebounds for Oregon State (10-7, 2-3 Pac-12). The Beavers beat their in-state rivals at Gill Coliseum for the first time since 2010 and sent the slumping Ducks to their fourth consecutive loss. Jason Calliste finished with 17 points and Richard Amardi had 13 points and six rebounds for the Ducks (13-4, 1-4), who trailed 37-30 at halftime and never got closer than five in the second half. “We’re still in the process of getting to be a good team,” Beavers coach Craig Robinson said. “To watch us put it all together, albeit with some quirks here and there, it was really a fun game to watch from a coaching standpoint.” Robinson said his team drew inspiration from last week’s 88-83 loss at home to California in a game the Beavers led 45-35 at halftime.
“I was able to point to that at halftime of this game,” Robinson said. “You can’t blow these opportunities. We’d been talking about that all way, that you don’t get these opportunities very often. “But you know what the centerpiece of the halftime talk was? Sticking to the game plan. I mean, if I’ve said that once this week, I’ve said it 40 times.” Defense was a key throughout for the Beavers, who did a particularly nice job of keeping Oregon’s Mike Moser and Joseph Young from taking over the game. Young, who came into the game averaging a team-high 18.8 points, matched his season low with five points on 2 of 9 shooting from the field. Moser, who entered averaging 14.6, finished with eight points on 3 of 15 shooting. For the game, the Ducks made 25 of 66 shots, including 4 of 19 from 3-point range. “Offensively, the first half we had a bunch of guys just trying to do it on their own,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “Ball movement was not very good and we took a lot of bad shots and got ourselves down.”
Oregon State twice led by as many as 16 points in the first half, the second time at 30-14 when Nelson made two free throws. The Ducks rallied behind Amardi, Calliste, and Ben Carter as they outscored the Beavers 16-7 over the closing 7:49 of the half to pull within 37-30 at the break. After Devon Collier converted a three-point play to push the Beavers lead to 63-50 midway through the second half, Oregon went on a 16-8 run capped by a pair of Elgin Cook free throws that made it 71-66 with 2:09 to play, but that was as close as the Ducks could get. Oregon State made 7 of 10 free throws in the final 52 seconds — three each for Nelson and Moreland — to seal the victory Angus Brandt finished with 14 points and Hallice Cooke added 10 points and five assists for the Beavers, who made 23 of 51 shots, including 7 of 13 from beyond the arc. OSU also had a 42-34 edge in rebounds and had eight blocked shots to Oregon’s two. “It shows that we’re making progress,” Brandt said.
