Hagner found guilty BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World
COQUILLE — After less than a half-hour of deliberations, a Coos County jury returned with a unanimous verdict: Wayne Raymond Hagner is guilty of murder. Following a three-day trial, the North Bend man was convicted in the July 5 shooting death of his wife, Anna Lee Hagner. A police officer found her lying in a pool of blood while conducting a welfare check. Hagner’s defense team, Robert Manske and Allen Goldman, had fought to convince the jury that Hagner’s actions were, at worst, reckless, rather than an intentional attempt to take a life. Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier wasn’t having that line of thought. In his rebuttal to Goldman’s closing remarks, Frasier rolled his chair in front of the jury, raised his right hand and pointed it like a gun.

Decision on golf course is delayed
Vintage football, basketball footage uncovered in Marshfield High School storage room

GOLD BEACH — The Curry County Planning Commission has delayed its decision on a proposed golf course near Port Orford for a month. The commission held open the public comment period for the Pacific Gales Golf Course for an additional 14 days at the request of two environmental groups. That will be followed by a seven-day period for rebuttal testimony and seven days for developers to make their final arguments. The commission now plans to deliberate and vote on the conditional use permit application at a Feb. 27 meeting in Gold Beach. The proposal calls for an 18-hole golf course on a portion of the Knapp Ranch, located between Cape Blanco and the city limits. Because Pacific Gales would be built on land zoned exclusive farm use, a conditional use permit is required.
COOS BAY — Marshfield High’s athletes have been trapped in film canisters in the depths of the school for decades, waiting to be dusted off. Two days after the Heritage Hall committee met to discuss putting video in the room, Marshfield Principal Doug Holland was approached by volunteer Cricket Soules. There are a bunch of canisters at the end of the school’s “long, dark hallway,” a storage room next to the cafeteria, she said. “We’ve got to find something we can run in Heritage Hall that connects people, that gives them a snapshot into the past,” he said. He couldn’t believe the treasure he uncovered: more than 300 16mm reels of football and basketball footage starting in the 1950s. “When people talk about their high school, they always See the video and talk about what they did,” he said. “This is what they did.” online photo gallery at Student body president Ashley Barbian helped Holland theworldlink.com find a projector and drag it to his office. He loaded the oldest reel: a Marshfield vs. Eugene football game in 1950 (the Pirates won 20-14). He flipped through the 1950 yearbook while the game flashed across his white board. A name popped out: Scott. He went to one of his secretaries, Lynn Scott, to ask if she knew a Scott who went to Marshfield High in the 1950s. She did; it was her father-in-law, Ken. “It was run so fast you could hardly tell what was happening, but you could pick out some of the things,” Ken Scott said. “It’s kind of a shame they were just stuck away.” During his time at Marshfield, the 1951 graduate played left end. His teammates ran across the screen: Tommy Crabtree, Wayne Frostad (“a great tackle”) and Ron Robins (“a tremendous running back”). “They were dedicated to playing football and to the school,” he said.

County starts budget process BY EMILY THORNTON The World
County — Coos COQUILLE Commissioners met with county department leaders on Thursday to discuss what to expect during upcoming 2014-2015 budget talks. Expectations this year include heads of departments bringing itemized budgets and justifying each of their expenditures. They may be required to pay for their utilities based on the square footage of their departments, excluding the common areas, such as bathrooms, hallways and meeting rooms. The utilities of state court areas in the courthouse may be billed to maintenance. In the past, the maintenance department paid

Transient victim died of blunt-force trauma to head ■
Why I chose Southern Coos Hospital...
COQUILLE — A man charged with murder in the February 2013 death of a Coos Bay transient pleaded guilty to a significantly lesser charge of assault Thursday afternoon. Jesse Longhenry, clad in a white and black striped jail uniform, appeared calm as he entered a plea of guilty to a single count of second-degree assault before Coos County Judge Richard Barron. Longhenry’s plea was part of an agreement with the Coos County District Attorney’s Office, which had agreed to dismiss the murder charge. Longhenry was one of three men charged with murder in the death of Jesse Hayes, whose body was discovered near a warehouse on Hemlock Avenue on Feb. 24. His trial had been scheduled to begin in less than two weeks. An autopsy concluded the cause of Hayes’ death
was a subdural hematoma — a type of severe head injury — caused by bluntforce trauma. Police believe he had been killed four days earlier, and his body covered with trash. Longhenry’s co-defendants, Michael Gertson and George Ivanoff, have since pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter under agreements with the Coos County District Attorney’s Office. District Attorney Paul Frasier said the assault charge carries a minimum sentence five months less than that of the manslaughter charge his co-defendants agreed to. “Manslaughter 2 is a minimum of 75 months,” Frasier said. “Assault 2 is 70.” A murder conviction would carry a minimum of 25 years in prison under Measure 11 sentencing guidelines. Barron set Longhenry’s sentencing for Feb. 3, when his seven-day trial had originally been set to begin.

AGNESS (AP) — A magnitude-3.8 earthquake was reported early Friday in southwestern Oregon and was felt by residents in rural Curry County. No damage or injuries were reported. A U.S. Geological Survey report placed the epicenter of the 5:53 a.m. temblor 26 miles northeast of Gold Beach, near Agness, the end of the line for whitewater rafters floating the wilderness section of the Rogue River. “I thought a tree fell and hit my deck,” Steve Berlant, owner of the Old Agness Store, told The Grants Pass Daily Courier. Berlant said several people stopped by the store to ask if he had felt the temblor. Harry Smedes, a professor in the environmental studies department at Southern Oregon University, said the temblor was minuscule in the scheme of earthquakes. “A magnitude-3 quake is felt indoors by some people, and a magnitude-4 quake is felt by most people outdoors, with no structural damage,” he said. “This quake was between the two magnitudes, so no damage expected.”

South Coast kids rack up chess awards Thirteen Coquille Chess players and one player from Bandon attended the Winter Carnival Chess Tournament in South Eugene on Jan. 18. In the elite section, Aaron Grabinsky’s win continues to demonstrate he is the top scholastic player in Oregon. Erik Skalnes managed to draw with Aaron but Aaron was undefeated overall and won first place earning a trophy and $100 cash. Fifth-grader Joshua Grabinsky, following in his older brother’s footsteps, also drew Erik Skalnes. He earned third-place and $30 cash. In the advanced section, Hailey Riley won two and a half games out of five as she works towards being the top girl chess player in Oregon. Marino Santoro from Bandon was recently pro-
moted to the advanced section and won two games out of five. In the intermediate section, Tanner Flood won two and half games, Jordan Henderson and Vincent Thrash won two games, and Samantha Huffman won one game. It was a tough section and many lessons were learned. In the novice section, JJ Newman was undefeated until he was finally beaten in the final round by teammate Zach Lathrom. There was a four-way tie for first place and an intense blitz playoff. Unfortunately, neither was experience at blitz. JJ ended up in third-place while Zach earned fourth. Both players received trophies. Other players included Caleb Prince who won three games, Garrett Baird who won two and a half games,

Chess enthusiasm starts early in Coquille Students at Coquille Valley Middle School were skipping classes in massive numbers on Jan. 15, all to play chess. However, tournament director Nancy Keller had bigger plans. She wanted to help develop enthusiasm for competitive chess and start scouting for potential members of the elementary and middle school state teams. In the elementary section, fourth-grader Angelina Morones dominated the event, never losing a game in the five-round event. There were four players who took second place with only a single loss: Jade Collier, Dustin Keleman, Johnathan Huffman and Logan Hill. In the junior high section, there was a four-way tie for first place between Vincent Thrash, Samantha Huffman, Jordan Henderson

A ray of light in the forest Our view Chances now look good for an O&C timber bill from Congress before summer.
What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at email@example.com.
Rep. Peter DeFazio dropped by this week to hold a town hall at the Coos Bay library and visit with The World editorial board. His visits are always fun and informative, and this conversation contained a bit of possibly good news . . . We might, just might, have a timber bill out of Congress before lawmakers take their summer break. As you’ll recall, DeFazio (along with fellow Oregon representatives Greg Walden and Kurt Schrader) and Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden have bills in their respective legislative houses to open up more of the 2 million acres
of Oregon and California timber lands for harvest. Much has been made in news reports about the difference between the bills. Wyden’s bill produces an estimated 300 million to 350 million board feet of lumber a year; DeFazio’s produces more like 500 million. DeFazio said Thursday that negotiations have been going on to reach a middle ground on all those differences and felt confident there would be a final bill that both sides agree on. A bill for a single state wouldn’t stand a chance of final passage. But DeFazio
said other lawmakers have been hankering for land legislation in their states, too, for everything from offshore drilling to creation of scenic rivers and new forest management. “Well, it’s been some three years since (Congress) has passed any kind of a larger lands package, and there’s a lot of pent-up demand,” DeFazio said. Put all those bills together and you have the kind of legislative package that could garner wide support. Of course our next question was: “When?” “Oh, I’d expect everyone
would want this done before we go on summer break,” DeFazio said. To be sure, that doesn’t guarantee that trees start falling right away. But isn’t this the kind of progress that all of us in this region have been pleading for? And isn’t this the kind of give-andtake negotiations we remember from Congresses of years ago, where competing ideas come together and compromise was an honorable tool of governing, not a dirty word? We should be cautiously optimistic, and grateful that our elected representatives are talking to each other.
Paying it forward What a friendship. Elisa Watson, of Coquille, wins a raffle and gets five minutes alone in the McKay’s Market in Coos Bay last Saturday. She amasses $424.53 worth of groceries in three carts. Then she gives it all away – to her friend, Nina Renard and her family. The Renards were there to cheer Elisa on but didn’t know until it was all over what Elisa was going to do. “She’s been more like a sister than just a friend,” Elisa said. And they hugged each other tight.
‘Hawks vs. Broncos If you’re a Seattle Seahawks fan, you gotta be pumped. If you’re a Denver Broncos fan, ditto. Both come into next week’s Super Bowl with 15-3 records. Should be one of the great Super Bowls. If you don’t care about either team, look at it this way — at least they’re both western states.
Hail to the new chief Duane Wisehart, Reedsport’s new police chief, was sworn in on Friday, Wisehart hails from Hemet, Calif., where he was a lieutenant and oversaw the investigations bureau for the police department there. The new chief says he wants to get to know everyone. Coming from a city of 80,000 to a community of 4,100, that shouldn’t be too difficult. Welcome, Duane.
‘Downtown’ powerhouse The only thing that matches spectacular 3-pointers of Pacific High School’s Austin Brown is the warmth he generates among the basketball fans in Langlois. When the point spread’s right, this junior varsity player takes the floor and wows the crowd. Austin’s a reminder that Down syndrome is no impediment to being able to participate. And his fans thank him for that reminder every game.
No free launch OK, so the cost to tie up at the Coos Bay city dock is going up, but at least not by leaps and bounds. The city council last week approved smaller annual increases tied to various price indices. And since no one showed up at the council meeting to complain, we have to figure that most folks are willing to live with it.

Remembering the fallen U.S. military death tolls in Afghanistan as of Friday:
When we don’t have all the answers Have you ever noticed that the contestants on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” can ask others for help and that quite often the most helpful and reliable source is the audience? The wisdom of the group demonstrates that contestants consistently get more right recommendations from the audience because the wisdom of the whole is better than the talents and abilities of just one person working alone to solve a problem. Scott Page, Ph.D. author of the book “The Difference: How the Power of Diversity Creates Better Groups, Firms, Schools and Society,” has done a ton of work on the value of cognitive diversity, showing that random collections of intelligent problem-solvers can outperform collections of the best problem solvers of only one type. Cognitive diversity comes from our DNA, background, and life experiences, and according to Page we all have different toolboxes that, when combined, enable solution-finders to create novel breakthroughs. Of the key messages that can be taken from Page is that gaining input from diverse citizens, employees, team members and classmates when working on projects of common concern leads to greater than expected out-
comes. Individuals must strive to be their best but it is not done in a vacuum, it is done in relationship to those around us in our everyday D E B O R A H life. Life is a MAHER team sport and we see exam- What if ... ples of this all around us. We increasingly see the value of team accomplishments. Just look at how the Nobel Prize has evolved. Now instead of the prize going to one scientist, it goes to a team. Even when an actor is accepting an Academy award they acknowledge they did not do it alone. None of us can do it alone. We are living in a time a change where we can no longer rely on the “hero” who will save us. The difficulty is that it is often hard to ask for help, for a number of reasons. But one that really stands out is the fear of appearing vulnerable. Somehow, we have come to believe that we must have all of the answers and if we don’t, then we are not good enough, smart enough, strong enough or worthy. These are universal fears and now, with the ever-increasing
complexity we see around us, the world is calling for us to collaborate and find people with strengths that balance our strengths for the good of the whole. Being open to ideas different than our own can be difficult because it may cause us to change, shift a perspective or even relinquish some perceived power. However, if we are open to new ideas, inputs and viewpoints, we may find our greatest insights; our “a-ha” moments. And maybe if we are open, we might even say, “I never thought about it that way!” The shift begins with willingness; the simple act of being willing to see different viewpoints can lead to unexpected possibilities. Bell Hooks encourages us to go beyond our fears in her book “Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope,” as she tells us that our “Dominator culture has tried to keep us all afraid, to make us choose safety instead of risk, sameness instead of diversity. Moving through that fear, finding out what connects us, reveling in our differences; this is the process that brings us closer, that gives us a world of shared values, of meaningful community.”
Effective leaders are conveners who demonstrate a willingness to be open to a range of perspectives and are comfortable with not having all of the answers. They understand the importance of posing the right questions. They are inclusive, welcome new ideas and are willing to act on them. In times of change, we must turn to each other and chart a new path together because we are going to a place we have not been before. I wonder when you have had the opportunity to work with an inclusive leader and have experienced the power of diversity in creating a solution to a challenging problem. Drop me a line and tell me that story; what was the situation, what types of diverse people were involved, what happened? It would be great to hear local stories of success.

Winter wildfires burn in southwest Oregon, Coast Range BY JEFF BARNARD The Associated Press GRANTS PASS — High winds and a lack of rain combined to whip up a dozen small fires around western Oregon, many in old logging slash that was burned in recent months and would have been doused by rain in a normal winter. Two fires burned Friday on private timberland southeast of Cannon Beach, the Oregon Department of Forestry said. The Falcon fire burned 50 acres and the Shingle Mill fire covered 30 acres. Both were in logging debris that had been burned recently to prepare the site for replanting. Homes in the Arch Cape area were not threatened. “I have never experienced this in January,” said Ashley Lertora from the Forestry Department’s Astoria office. “Usually we have enough rain that burning slash is a safe operation. This time, we just didn’t get as much as we expected based on the forecasts.” Five fires were burning in the Cascades southeast of Salem and three outside Coos Bay, the department said. The biggest was about 300 acres. In southwestern Oregon, Grayback Forestry President Mike Wheelock sent firefighting crews to two fires rekindled in piles of logging slash. The Alder Creek Fire has burned 125 acres on private timberland 16 miles north of Shady Cove, and another was contained at 8 acres in the
COURSE Interest groups ask for more time Continued from Page A1 In his report on the project, interim Planning Director David Pratt recommended the commission approve the application, with a number of conditions. Chris Hood, who presented the project to the planning commission on behalf of Elk River Property Development LLC, agreed with the report with the exception of a few of the 17 conditions Pratt had listed, all referring to wetlands. Because the developers plan to avoid impacting wetlands while building the golf course, Hood said a 50-foot setback for the golf course — one of the proposed conditions — is not necessary. “I don’t think we’re going to be harming the wetlands with what we’re doing,” he said, adding that instead the golf course would enhance the wetlands and wildlife habitat. Hood also said a condition on the specific area that might be used for the golf course is restrictive, since the proposed routing might be changed when a final analysis of wetlands on the property is completed by a Wilsonville firm that specializes in that area, a process that is waiting for winter rainfall to determine what wetlands are present. “I don’t think the area we need to develop will increase a lot, we just may need to shift some,” he said. An overflow crowd turned out for Thursday night’s meeting in Gold Beach, with several Port Orford area residents speaking out in support of the golf course and others speaking against it, or at least voicing concerns for the commission to consider before voting on the project. “I am generally in favor of the project for the economic opportunity it will provide Port Orford,” said Jim Auburn, the city’s mayor, adding that the course would employ a number of people and also boost businesses including restaurants, motels and tourist attractions. “I think those are things we need.” Michael Hewitt, a retired

Ashland watershed on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. “These were piles (of logging debris) lit in early December and late November,” Wheelock said. “It’s quite unusual this time of year to have a holdover that long. It’s a sign of the drought conditions we’ve had.” As winds died down, crews were getting fire line around the Alder Creek fires, said Brian Ballou of the Department of Forestry. In Coos County, two fires burned outside the community of Remote. The Camas Creek fire was at 40 acres and the Bone Mountain fire was at 300 acres, the Oregon Department of Forestry said. Bulldozers, helicopters, and hand crews fought the fires. After unusually early rains in the fall that helped quell wildfires from the summer, winter rains have failed to materialize. Storms that would normally soak the state and blanket the Cascades with snow have been shunted to the north by a stubborn ridge of high pressure off the coast. What rains have reached the area have been far less than normal, continuing drought that has persisted since last spring. The U.S. Drought Monitor showed most of the
state parks manager and neighbor to the south of the golf course, agreed. “I want to say thank you for your boldness making this project,” he said to the Pacific Gales representatives at the meeting. “This county needs economic development. We need to move forward.” But other residents raised concerns. Penelope Suess said that once the golf course is built, the land will never return to its natural state and that there is no guarantee the golf course will be able to compete with others in the region and draw the golfers it would need to be economically viable. And if it does work, and leads to additional businesses in town, the city’s infrastructure could become overstressed, especially a water system that already is in bad shape, she said. Bigger objections were raised by environmental groups, all in comments submitted to the planning department Thursday. The Kalmiopsis Audubon Society was represented at the meeting by President Ann Vileisis and Tim Palmer, both Port Orford residents. Vileisis said the golf course could have a severe impact on the fish populations in the Elk River north of the golf course, including native coho salmon, a threatened species, and fall Chinook salmon. Water taken from the river and an unnamed tributary on the Knapp property for irrigation on the golf course could lead to higher river and stream temperatures, she said. Meanwhile, both the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition and the Oregon Coast Alliance, which did not have representatives speak Thursday, requested that the comment period remain open for 14 days. In rebuttal to Vileisis, Hood said the golf course isn’t impacting any salmon streams since the land it will be built on drains to the south. He also cautioned the commission that its focus needs to be on the application and whether the developers have satisfied the rules for the conditional use. “Your job is not to come in to satisfy every whim and environmental concern,” he said.

Obituaries and State Text no cause to celebrate
Inmate escape bids fail 18 times PORTLAND (AP) — Investigative documents and an audit show 18 Oregon inmates were caught in the past five years with escape plans elaborate enough to warrant discipline — and state auditors blame staff complacency in two notable cases that happened within a day of each other at an eastern Oregon prison. Ten escape attempts date to 2010, the Oregonian reported. On a Sunday evening in June of that year, inmate Robert L. Emery left a dummy fashioned from clothing and towels on his bunk at the Snake River prison near Ontario, and sneaked into the laundry. He broke windows, drilled out a door lock, broke into metal tool cages, bashed a hole in the laundry wall, lugged bags of tools, dug under one fence and climbed over another, whose razor wire shredded his arms. No one noticed. Emery gave up the escape attempt, though, exhausted, bleeding and huddling under a blanket in the prison yard until he was found. A day earlier at the prison, Michael J. Norwood put headphones on a dummy fashioned of inmate clothing and placed it in a relaxed pose on his top bunk. Within 15 minutes, an inmate tipped a corrections officer to the plot, and officers imposing a lockdown caught Norwood in the yard. Among items in his pockets: 35 rolls of dental floss, two razor blades, a piece of plastic rope, photos of his wife, and candy bars. The State Police said searchers later found an improvised ladder in a garbage can in the yard. The ladder was manufactured from toilet paper tubes and dental floss. A special team assessed
the two escape attempts. Its report, heavily redacted for release to The Oregonian, found the prison “out of compliance with its own procedure and DOC security standards.” DOC is the Department of Corrections, which hadn’t revealed the escape attempts. The Oregonian reported it was tipped by a corrections worker and filed records requests. In Emery’s case, two different officers apparently were fooled, and Emery’s absence wasn’t noted for an entire shift, the review team said. It found problems in the prison laundry, where inmates didn’t line up or show identification. “The inmates just called off their name and cell number, and the officer checked off their information without looking up,” the team said. Saying other inmates could make use of the information, prison officials wouldn’t explain how Emery could go undetected for so long while being so destructive. Prison officials laced the seven-page report with recommendations, all redacted before release to the newspaper. Nooth said most of them have been adopted. Norwood, 41, got six months in segregation for the escape attempt. He was serving time for burglary from Eugene. An intake counselor didn’t properly document Norwood’s escape from a Colorado halfway house in 2000, according to prison records. Emery, 50, also got six months in segregation and later was transferred to the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem. He was convicted in Bend of robbery, kidnapping, assault and attempted rape. He will be 96 when his sentence ends in 2060.

Leaders of the Medford Education Association announced the vote results Thursday evening. About 95 percent of the union’s 600 members were present for the vote. The Medford Mail Tribune reports that the strike vote means teachers could walk off their jobs after giving 10 days’ notice. Negotiations are set to resume Friday.

DEAR ABBY: My daughter, who recently turned 21, sent me a two-word text message, “I’m pregnant.” She has been dating a marijuanasmoking young man for less than a year, and I’m disappointed by this outcome. Her sister, who is a year older, already has two children by two men. No, they weren’t raised by a harlot. I adopted them when they were early elementary-aged children. It’s not my fault. I’m disgusted by their choices. I haven’t talked with her yet. I won’t try to lecture her or tell her how she should live her life. The time for that is over. I feel it would be best to say nothing if I can’t be positive. Suggestions? — DISGUSTED IN THE SOUTH D E A R D I S G U S T E D : It would be better if you said nothing to your daughter while you are angry, or DEAR you may say something you will regret. It would not be out of line, however, to text her back and ask, “How do JEANNE you and PHILLIPS ‘John’ plan to support the baby?” If you don’t plan to help her in any way, you should let her know NOW that she’ll be on her own. DEAR ABBY: Our 13-yearold is addicted to her phone. She stays on it for hours, and it’s affecting the time she goes to bed. She’s now starting to oversleep the alarm in the morning before school. She’s spoiled, and I’m afraid that removing or limiting phone privileges will lead to major problems with her protesting it. I don’t want truant officers or social workers coming to my house because my wife and I can’t discipline our kid. How do you handle a spoiled brat without involving outside agencies? She’s nice to people in school, but is lazy at home and totally self-centered. — FRUSTRATED, EXHAUSTED DAD DEAR DAD: You and your wife created this “monster,” and now it’s your job to make things right. Of course your daughter won’t like it when you set rules, but you must establish some for her before your lack of parenting causes even more serious problems. Set the rules and stick with them. If she won’t follow them, there should be penalties for not doing so. Try this: Start with homework. When it’s done, she can have her phone for a period of time. Inform her that if she oversleeps because she was up too late on her phone, you will take it at bedtime. And then follow through. DEAR ABBY: I’m about to be 17 and just started living with my mom after being a runaway for three months. During that time, I made friends with people who were not good for me. However, I still feel I need to cling to these people and be there for them. As I write this, one of the girls I was closest to is in prison and will be there for a long time. I have to pretend to be fine and act as if I don’t care for her, but I do, desperately. My mom refuses to be understanding and talk about anything with me. I don’t know what to do. — TEEN IN LITTLE ROCK DEAR TEEN: Your mother appears to belong to the ostrich school of parenting. If she doesn’t hear something, it doesn’t exist. Clearly, you DO need to talk with someone about the feelings you’re experiencing and why you feel the need to “cling to these people.” Because your mother can’t/won’t do this, it’s important that you talk to a counselor at school and ask for the help you need.

A MINUTE MESSAGE From NORM RUSSELL
Peanuts? Ever since Lady Diana and Prince Charles had captured headlines (and now Prince William and Kate Middleton) I have sort of been fascinated by the royal family. Have you ever wondered what the Queen and her husband do each day? I wonder what hour they get up in the morning and are their hours planned out for them or do they write their own schedule? I have no idea how they occupy their time, but not long ago my wife mentioned an article in the paper stating that the Queen was getting upset because the security detail (or whoever) was eating too many peanuts. Now I do not know why this is so upsetting to her. I cannot picture her walking down the aisle at a super market to buy snack goodies for her and Prince Philip. Rest assured someone else was doing the buying, and probably paying for it from the nation’s treasury. (Now I know what the Queen does in her spare time) Isn’t it interesting how easy it is to confuse trivial things with that which is important?

He said it seems to be moving enough water through the mixing zone to disperse the effluent, even though there’s still a noticeable odor around the outfall pipe. “I think they implemented what everybody thinks will work — it appears they did a good job of creating that side channel and establishing some good woody debris in the bank and shoring it all up,” Williams said. “The test will be when the river is at average to low flows — is the mixing zone backing up in that immediate area, or is it mixing as it was designed to do?”

SALEM (AP) — A Marion County sheriff’s officer says two human skulls found in a cardboard box at a recycling center belonged to a nowdeceased Oregon man whose relatives say he obtained them while prospecting for gold in the Philippines decades ago. Sgt. Chris Baldridge said Thursday that Frank Shriver’s relatives knew about the skulls but say they were never on display and no one knew exactly how or why Shriver obtained them. Family members say Shriver was in the Philippines just prior to the Japanese invasion of World War II. The North Bend man died in 1991 and the skulls passed to a son who lived in Salem. After his death, Baldridge says they were accidentally
CORVALLIS — A dredging project in the Willamette River south of Corvallis appears to be doing exactly what it was designed to do: providing a steady flow of water to the intake pipe for a large Linn County pulp and tissue operation and diluting the treated wastewater from the plant where it enters the river. Cascade Pacific Pulp invested $1.3 million in the undertaking, which carved a new channel through a gravel bar that had built up near the company’s water handling facility on the Willamette at American Slough. The river was backing up behind the gravel bar during periods of low flows, allowing effluent from the outfall pipe to mix with the intake feeding Cascade Pacific’s Halsey pulp mill and the adjoining Georgia-Pacific tissue plant, which together employ about 600 workers. The reduced flow also created a coffee-colored, foul-smelling plume of concentrated effluent that was not being dispersed before leaving the designated mixing zone below the outfall pipe, which enters the Willamette about 15 miles upstream of Corvallis. The river supplies about 70 percent of the city’s drinking water. Cascade Pacific tried to address the problem by dredging a small temporary channel in 2011, but it needed permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers before it could attempt a larger-scale, longer-term solution. In August 2012, Willamette Riverkeeper threatened to sue the company under the Clean Water Act unless it acted quickly to resolve the problem. The nonprofit environmental watchdog also wanted Cascade Pacific Pulp to post signs marking the outfall site and identifying itself as the responsible party. The suit was dropped after Cascade Pacific paid $20,000 and agreed to complete the dredging project and modernize the fish screens on its intake pipe. After meeting with an arbitrator, the company agreed to post signs identifying the intake facility as Cascade Pacific property, but with no reference to the effluent mixing zone. The new side channel was opened last August, and the project was completed in late October. The channel

Nation Christie’s campaign, New Jersey GOP face federal subpoenas TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie’s reelection campaign and the New Jersey Republican Party have less than two weeks to comply with subpoenas from federal prosecutors investigating allegations of political payback. Subpoenas to the Christie for Governor organization and the Republican State Committee were disclosed Thursday, the same day the Republican governor’s campaign announced it had hired a Washington, D.C., law firm in the case. The subpoenas from the U.S. attorney’s office are evidence of an escalating criminal investigation into allegations that Christie’s aides created traffic jams in a town with a mayor who’s a Democratic adversary. Earlier in the month, Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney for New Jersey, said his office was reviewing the matter “to determine whether a federal law was implicated.” The federal subpoenas are due Feb. 5. A state legislative committee also is investigating. Its subpoenas for correspondence from 20 Christie associates and organizations are due Feb. 3. Christie, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, was New Jersey’s U.S. attor-
ney before stepping down in late 2008 to run for governor. Federal prosecutors refused to comment Thursday. Christie, in Camden to talk about a school dinner program, left without taking questions. The governor’s office and re-election staff did not return messages seeking comment. The governor’s top political adviser, Bill Palatucci, said it’s “wildly premature” to speculate on how the scandal will impact Christie’s political future. “Lots of folks in different states have seen similar situations, and their favorite politician gets through it,” Palatucci said Thursday at a gathering of the Republican National Committee in Washington. “They all expect (Christie) to do well also.” The Republican Governors Association announced Thursday that Christie, who is chairman of the group this year, would be fundraising in Massachusetts, Texas, Utah and elsewhere in coming months. The release of a vague travel schedule followed a call from recent Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli that Christie resign from the post.

USIS, the company that handled a background check on National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden allegedly defrauded the government by submitting at least 665,000 investigations that had not been properly completed, and then tried to cover it up when the government suspected what was going on.
Government goes after background checkers WASHINGTON (AP) — The company that handled a background check on National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden allegedly defrauded the government by submitting at least 665,000 investigations that had not been properly completed, and then tried to cover it up when the government suspected what was going on. The number of investigations, the Justice Department said Wednesday in a civil complaint, amounts to 40 percent of the cases that the company, U.S. Investigations Services Inc., sent to the government over a four-year span, continuing through at least September 2012. USIS was involved in a background investigation of Snowden in 2011, but his particular job doesn’t figure in the lawsuit. In a statement, USIS said “these allegations relate to a small group of individuals over a specific time period and are inconsis-
tent with the strong service record we have earned since our inception in 1996.” The statement said the company first learned of the allegations nearly two years ago and that USIS has appointed a new leadership team, enhanced oversight procedures and has fully cooperated with the government’s investigation. The company said that “integrity and excellence are core values” at USIS, which has 6,000 employees. The government said that USIS engaged in a practice known inside the company as “dumping” or “flushing.” It involved releasing uncompleted background cases to the government and representing them as complete in order to increase revenue and profit. The government paid the company $11.7 million in performance awards from 2008 to 2010, according to the Justice Department court filing.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife pleaded not guilty Friday to federal charges that they traded their influence for tens of thousands of dollars in gifts and loans, and both will be allowed to remain free until their trial. “It’s not guilty, your honor,” McDonnell said when asked his plea. U.S. District Court Judge James R. Spencer set a July 28 start for a jury trial. The proceedings are expected to last five to six weeks. An hour before pleading not guilty, the McDonnells were released on their own recognizance Friday but were ordered by U.S. Magistrate Judge David Novak not to leave the country. The former governor’s lawyer, John Brownlee, told Novak the defendants already have surrendered their passports. The McDonnells were indicted on 14 counts Tuesday after a lengthy federal investigation of his relationship with a former CEO of a dietary supplement maker Both judges issued strong warnings against leaking sensitive information to the media. Much of the details of the government’s case against McDonnell had long been made public through months of news stories based on anonymous sources “This case is going to be tried in the courtroom; it is not going to be tried in the media,” Novak said. “The gamesmanship with the media ends now.” Bob and Maureen McDonnell often held hands as they made their way through the courthouse. Both hearings were packed with family, supporters and the media. Supporters include prominent Republican lawmakers, like House Speaker William J. Howell and House Majority Leader Kirk Cox. At the arraignment, Maureen McDonnell said she was currently taking prescription medication for “concentration and anxiety.” Federal prosecutors allege the McDonnells accepted more than $165,000 worth of loans and gifts from Jonnie Williams, the former head of Star Scientific Inc. Prosecutors say that in return, the McDonnells improperly helped Williams promote his company’s products. The investigation crippled the chances of attaining higher office for McDonnell, once a rising star in the Republican Party who had even been considered a possible running mate for Mitt Romney in 2012. He has apologized for what he describes as bad judgment and has said he repaid about $120,000 in gifts and loans. But he has steadfastly denied breaking any laws. The indictment handed down Tuesday accuses the couple of accepting gifts such as shopping sprees for designer clothes and accessories, a Rolex watch, $15,000 in catering expenses for a daughter’s wedding, golf outings and a lake-house vacation stay that included use of Williams’ Ferrari. McDonnell also received $120,000 in loans for family real estate ventures, according to the indictment. Prosecutors said the couple in turn promoted Star Scientific’s products and gave special treatment to Williams, including arranging for him to meet a state health official. The couple also opened up the Executive Mansion for a launch party for one of the company’s signature products. If convicted, the McDonnells could face a long stretch in prison. Twelve of the charges are punishable by up to 20 years in prison, two by up to 30 years. Potential fines range from $250,000 to $1 million.

The National Transportation Safety Board on Thursday asked for stricter safety measures for transporting crude oil by rail. One proposal by the NTSB would call for railroads to have careful route plannng for trains with hazardous materials and to avoid populated areas.
Rail risks boost pipeline backers WASHINGTON (AP) — A government warning about the dangers of increased use of trains to transport crude oil is giving a boost to supporters of the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline. U.S. and Canadian accident investigators urged their governments Thursday to impose new safety rules on so-called oil trains, warning that a “major loss of life” could result from an accident involving the increasing use of trains to transport large amounts of crude oil. Pipeline supporters said the unusual joint warning by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada highlights the need for Keystone XL, which would carry oil derived from tar sands in western Canada to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Oil started flowing Wednesday through a southern leg of the pipeline from Oklahoma to the Houston region. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said the yearslong review of Keystone has forced oil companies to look for alternatives to transport oil from the booming Bakken region of North Dakota and Montana to refineries in the U.S. and Canada. A planned spur connecting Keystone to the Bakken region would carry as much as
year — have raised alarms. Spills from rail cars occur more frequently than from pipelines but tend to be smaller. Pipelines also can be built to avoid population centers and fragile ecosystems, while crude-carrying trains frequently travel through large cities such as Detroit and Philadelphia. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called for new steps to protect communities from accidents involving oil trains and other hazardous materials, including fees on companies that ship crude oil by rail and industries that use oil. The money would go into a fund to rebuild rail lines, Emanuel told a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington. Rail industry officials bristled at the notion of a tax on their customers. “Freight railroads each year invest roughly $25 billion of their own funds into the nationwide rail network so taxpayers don’t have to, and the result is rail infrastructure that is the envy of the world,” said Edward Hamberger, president of the Association of American Railroads.“As we’ve seen with other federal tax and fee proposals, the end result is unfortunately that consumers often end up footing the bill.”
100,000 barrels of oil a day. “Clearly because this project has been held up, that is creating more (oil) traffic by rail,” Hoeven said Thursday. “Those companies are being forced to deliver their product by rail because they don’t have the pipelines.” A pipeline opponent said Hoeven’s argument is based on a false choice between moving oil by rail or pipeline. “It’s disingenuous for supporters of Keystone XL to suggest that if we build Keystone, we won’t have safety risks posed by crude-by-rail, and if we don’t built the pipeline we will” have those risks, said Anthony Swift, an attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council who has studied the Canadian tar sands. Shipment of oil by train is likely to continue, whether or not Keystone XL is approved, Swift and others said, as companies seek to capitalize on an oil boom that has pushed North Dakota to become the second-largest oil producing state after Texas. Both rail and pipelines have good overall safety records, although several high-profile accidents involving crude oil shipments — including a fiery explosion in North Dakota last month and an explosion that killed 47 people in Canada last
Ex-NY/NJ port exec to pay own bills NEW YORK (AP) — The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says it won’t pay the legal bills of a former executive accused of restricting access to the George Washington Bridge as political payback. Traffic lane closures created days of gridlock in Fort Lee, N.J., whose Democratic mayor didn’t endorse Republican Gov. Chris Christie. Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman says the agency informed David Wildstein on Friday that covering his legal expenses wasn’t warranted under its bylaws.
Climbing the income ladder isn’t harder WASHINGTON (AP) — Young Americans from lowincome families are as likely to move into the ranks of the affluent today as those born in the 1970s, according to a report by several top academic experts on inequality. The study, published this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research, runs counter to the widespread belief that a widening gap between rich and poor has made it harder to climb the economic ladder. Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike have expressed alarm over what had been seen as diminishing opportunities for economic advancement through hard work and ingenuity. Instead, the study found that 9 percent of children born in 1986 to the poorest 20 percent of households were likely to climb into the top 20 percent — littlechanged from 8.4 percent for such children born in 1971. “Absolutely, we were surprised” by the results, says Harvard University economist Nathaniel Hendren. He is one of the report’s authors The top 1 percent of Americans accounted for 22.5 percent of income earned in the U.S. in 2012. But the fact the top 1 percent are pulling away has had little effect on the ability of those in the bottom fifth to rise to the top fifth, the study found.
Those bylaws generally call for current and former employees to get their legal bills covered for job-related activities, but not if there’s misconduct or fraud. The Port Authority’s law department is reviewing a request from ex-deputy director Bill Baroni. Both resigned amid an investigation into the lane closures. Wildstein’s lawyer hasn’t returned a phone call. Christie has called his staff’s behavior “stupid.”

The chain-reaction collision near Michigan City was triggered by a sudden burst of heavy lake-effect snow that took drivers by surprise, said Indiana State Police Lt. Jerry Williams. Within about 45 seconds, dozens of vehicles — including numerous other trucks — were crashing into one another. The accident killed Chicago resident Jerry Dalrymple, 65, and a Michigan couple: Thomas Wolma, 67, and his 65-yearold wife, Marilyn, of Grand Rapids. More than 20 people were injured, including one who remained in critical condition Friday. Pawlik said the scene was “something that you’ll never forget. It’ll live with us forever.” But he acknowledged that first responders were expecting worse. “We’re lucky that there wasn’t 20 people dead and three people injured,” he said. Among the survivors was Jeffrey Rennell, who was driving home to Michigan from a business meeting in Chicago when his SUV suddenly started bouncing off other vehicles like a ping pong ball. Firefighters found it on top of another vehicle and “encased in semis,” Pawlik said. Rennell was trapped for more than three hours in the twisted remains of his Ford Explorer, according to his brother, Steve Rennell. He said his 48-year-old brother told him he wasn’t able to move much while trapped in his SUV, but he didn’t think his injury was serious. Rennell was airlifted to a Chicago hospital, where he was treated for a broken leg and released. He was headed back to Michigan on Friday to be reunited with his wife and two children, ages 5 and 3.

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) — Cars were mangled, and some were burned despite the blowing snow. Other vehicles were crushed between jackknifed semitractors, so entwined that it was difficult to tell them apart. People were screaming, but emergency responders couldn’t see many of them as they quickly tended the victims amid frigid conditions. Within seconds, traffic along snow-covered Interstate 94 in northern Indiana had become a milelong pile of debris after whiteout conditions swept in during Thursday’s evening commute. Three people were killed and nearly two dozen were injured. “It was such a devastating scene, you don’t know where to start,” said Coolspring Township Fire Chief Mick Pawlik, whose volunteer crew was among the first on the scene about 60 miles south of Chicago. “There were people in cars that you couldn’t even see,” Pawlik said during a news conference Friday. “But when people are stuck in their cars, they look at you like we’re Moses. ‘Part the water. Save us.”’ Rescue crews quickly set about prioritizing the victims. Who needed help first? And who was beyond help? Firefighters worked quickly to keep the victims warm while they extricated them. Just as importantly, Pawlik tried to take their minds off what had happened — even though the dead weighed on his and other first responders’ minds. “Those are the worst,” Pawlik said. “You sit there — they’re the last ones to get out but you know they’re there.”

Wayne Hagner glares at members of the jury after being found guilty of murder Thursday evening in the July 5 shooting death of his wife, Anna Hagner. Hagner faces a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison under Measure 11 sentencing guidelines.
HAGNER Continued from Page A1 Witness Otto Epping had testified that Hagner had fired a shot from a seated position into the kitchen at a downward angle. “This,” said Frasier, seated before the jury, “was not a reckless act.” Earlier in the day, state Deputy Medical Examiner James Olson had testified the gunshot wound that killed Anna Hagner was almost immediately fatal. North Bend Police Sgt. Buddy Young had found Anna, who was disabled, lying in a pool of blood next to her walker in the couple’s kitchen. A .32-caliber bullet, fired from a Harrington & Richardson revolver, had struck her just above the left eye at a downward angle. Towels had been stacked around the woman’s head to contain the blood pouring from the wound. “A bullet wound causes far more injury than penetrating just the tissue it goes
through,” Olson said, pointing to bullet and bone fragments shown inside Anna Hagner’s skull in an autopsy X-ray. Goldman called Hagner’s father, Leonard, and two shopkeepers to testify to the man’s “loving” nature when seen with his wife. But under cross examination from Frasier, all admitted their brief observations gave only a small window into the Hagners’ marriage. During his closing presentation, the prosecutor replayed audio from video recorded by the Hagners’ neighbor,Sally Anderson during a dispute shortly before the shooting. As the sounds of swearing and yelling faded back into the speakers, Frasier gave the jury a knowing look. “We have this, supposedly from the man who treats his wife well,” he said. Following the verdict, Frasier asked the jury to answer four questions regarding Hagner’s past and likely future: Did Hagner lack empathy or sympathy for his crime?
Was he on post-prison parole or supervision at the time of the crime? Did his criminal record demonstrate a history of repetitive assaults? Was Hagner unwilling to reform his criminal conduct? After hearing from two post-trial witnesses called by Frasier, the jury decided the answer to all of the above was “yes.” North Bend Police Officer Mike Kuehn, who testified during the trial regarding the murder weapon found in the home, told the jury police found two additional handguns — a .22-caliber Jennings semi-automatic and a .380Colt Pocket caliber Hammerless semi-automatic — in the couple’s bedroom. “He wasn't supposed to have firearms in the first place,” said Frasier, who explained that Hagner had already pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm prior to the murder trial. Steve Reeves, a case officer County with Coos Community Corrections, tes-
tified that Hagner had been on supervision for a coercion charge, stemming from a 2009 assault case in which Anna Hagner was the victim. That charge, Frasier said, was one of the last in a laundry list of Hagner’s criminal convictions in the past decade ranging from assault to harassment. As far as attempts to reform Hagner’s criminal ways, Reeves said the man had already graduated from an anger management program and a drug treatment program prior to the 2013 shooting. As a result of the jury’s findings, Frasier said he’ll seek an enhancement to the minimum sentence for murder, which is 25 years in prison under Measure 11 guidelines. Judge Richard Barron scheduled Hagner’s sentencing for 1 p.m. on Feb. 3.

BUDGET Continued from Page A1 for utilities, which was about $130,000 of its $755,532 budget. “In my experience, if someone has to pay for something, they watch their expenses more closely,” Commissioner John Sweet said. Commissioners also determined departments would have to justify any extra help or overtime, as they will budget no money for it to begin. The county will receive its
last Secure Rural Schools payment in March, which will go toward the budget for 20152016, Commissioner Bob Main said. Under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act, the Bureau of Land Management makes payments to certain counties in western Oregon. The law provided a guaranteed level of payments that was no longer tied to the amount of timber produced on federal lands within the county. Mary Barton, county treasurer, said the county will receive a $2,408,951 SRS payment. Last year, the county
received about $2.1 million, she said. “It doesn’t make up for the lost timber sales,” Main said. “It’s very disappointing.” The budget likely will remain the same as last year, Barton said, but she wasn’t sure. Commissioners approved a $21.2 million general fund budget last year, with only $17.6 million in available funds, leaving a $3.6 million gap. Commissioners balanced that budget with forestry reserves, of which they estimate about two years are left. Barton said there is about $6.2 million left in
those funds. Officials also began making cuts six years ago to try to avoid budget shortfalls. It is too early to determine the budget shortfall or how many open positions remain, county officials decided. “There are too many unknowns at this point to know,” Barton said. Commissioners will begin having workshops with certain non-general fund departments on Feb. 6. They will continue with about 10 budget committee meetings twice weekly, beginning in March.

Bombings rock Egyptian capital, killing 6 people CAIRO (AP) — A truck bomb struck the main security headquarters in Cairo on Friday, one of a string of bombings targeting police within a 10-hour period, killing six people. The most significant attack yet in the Egyptian capital fueled a furious backlash against the Muslim Brotherhood amid rising fears of a militant insurgency. The mayhem on the eve of the third anniversary of Egypt’s oncehopeful revolution pointed to the dangerous slide Egypt has taken since last summer’s military ouster
of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi: A mounting confrontation between the military-backed government and Islamist opponents amid the escalating violence. In the hours after the blast, angry residents — some chanting for the “execution” of Brotherhood members — joined police in clashes with the group’s supporters holding their daily street protests against the government. Smoke rose over Cairo from fires, and fighting left 14 more people dead. Saturday, the anniversary of the
start of the 18-day uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, raised the potential for new violence, as both military supporters and the Islamists vowed to take to the streets with rival rallies. After Friday’s blasts, interim President Adli Mansour vowed to “uproot terrorism,” just as the government crushed a militant insurgency in the 1990s. The state “will not show them pity or mercy,” he said. “We ... will not hesitate to take the necessary measures.” That could spell an escalation in
Both sides in Syrian talks to meet in ‘same room’ GENEVA (AP) — Bending to intense international pressure, Syria’s government and the Western-backed opposition agreed Friday to face each other for the first time since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad. After three days of hostile rhetoric and five hours spent assiduously avoiding contact within the United Nations, the two sides will meet “in the same room,” said the U.N. mediator trying to forge an end to the civil war that has left 130,000 people dead since 2011. Mediator Lakhdar Brahimi met separately with Assad’s delegation and representatives with the Syrian National Coalition, who arrived at the U.N. European headquarters five hours apart to ensure their paths would not cross. “We never expected it to be easy and I’m sure it’s not going to be,but I think the two parties understand what’s at stake,” Brahimi said. “Their country is in very, very bad shape.” Brahimi, a famously patient mediator, is credited with efforts to stabilize Iraq and
Afghanistan after the U.S. ousted their governments. But he faces a formidable task to build peace in Syria, which has been flooded with al-Qaida-inspired militants. The conflict has become a proxy war between regional powers Iran and Saudi Arabia. Syria’s government has made military gains and has capitalized on the influx of foreign militants, while the coalition nearly collapsed as it wavered on whether to attend the talks at all. After Brahimi spoke, a member of the group said it still wasn’t clear what would happen Saturday. “Everybody will be in the same room, but everybody will address Mr. Brahimi. He will be the one who is going to conduct the negotiations,” said Louay Safi, who is taking part in the talks. Omran al-Zoubi, Syria’s information minister, said Assad’s delegation was committed. “We will stay here until we do the job. We will not be provoked. We will not retreat and we will be wise and flexible,” he said.
Kerry defends U.S. policy in Mideast
the crackdown that the government has waged against Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood since his July 3 ouster. Thousands of Islamists have already been arrested and hundreds killed, with authorities accusing the group of being behind militant violence. The Brotherhood, which allied with some radical groups while in power, denies the claim, saying the government is using it to justify its drive to eliminate it as a rival. The crackdown has expanded to silence
other forms of dissent, with arrests of secular activists critical of the military, security forces and the new administration. For activists, that has raised deep concerns over a return of a police state despite the government’s promises of democracy. But among a broad swath of the public, those concerns are eclipsed by fear of the wave of militant bombings and shootings since the coup, which have largely targeted police but increasingly hit in public areas taking civilian casualties.

Unless otherwise noted classes are held at BAY AREA HOSPITAL or the “CHEC” (Community Health Education Center) DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hit Friday at criticism that the Obama administration’s Middle East policy is in disarray, maintaining that the U.S. is actively engaged in multiple ambitious diplomatic initiatives in the region and elsewhere. Kerry spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, as Syria peace talks were near collapse 265 miles away in Geneva. Kerry rejected what he branded the “myth” of U.S. disengagement. He pointed to active and simultaneous Obama administration efforts to end the crisis in Syria, deal with Iran’s nuclear program and broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. “I must say, I’m perplexed by claims I occasionally hear that somehow America is disengaging from the world — this myth that America is pulling back, or giving up or standing down,” Kerry said. “In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. This misperception appears to be based on the simplistic assumption that our only tool of influence is our military, and that if we don’t have a huge troop presence or aren’t brandishing an immediate threat of force, we are somehow absent from the arena.” “The most bewildering version of this disengagement myth is about a supposed U.S. retreat from the Middle East,” he said.“You can’t find another country — not one country — as proactively engaged, or that is partnering with so many Middle Eastern countries as constructively as we are, on so many high-stake fronts.” No one is “suggesting, least of all me, that the United States can solve every one of the region’s problems or that every one of them can be a priority,” he said. “But as President (Barack) Obama made clear last fall at the United Nations, the United States will continue to invest significant effort in the Middle East because we have enduring interests in the region, and we have enduring friendships with countries that rely on us for their security in a volatile neighborhood. We will defend our partners and allies as necessary, and we will continue to ensure the free flow of energy, dismantle terrorist networks, and we will not tolerate the proliferation of nuclear weapons.”

140,000 Iraqis flee Anbar violence BAGHDAD (AP) — More than 140,000 Iraqis have fled parts of Anbar province over clashes between security forces and al-Qaida militants, the worst displacement of civilians in years, a United Nations official said Friday. The spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, Peter Kessler, described it as “the largest”
displacement witnessed in the country since the sectarian violence of 2006-2008. He added that more than 65,000 people fled the conflict just in the past week alone. 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 province of Anbar. They also control the center of the nearby city of Fallujah. Kessler said that many civilians are trapped and suffer from a lack of supplies. “Many civilians are unable to leave conflictaffected areas where food
and fuel are now in short supply,” he said. Calls to Iraq’s Justice Ministry over the report rang unanswered Friday, the start of the weekend in the Muslim world. Some displaced families have ended up in abandoned buildings, schools and halfbuilt houses while others stay with relatives.

A firefighter checks for gas leak as rescue personnel search through icy rubble to try to locate more victims of a fire that destroyed a seniors' residence in Quebec.
8 confirmed dead in Quebec fire, about 30 missing L’ISLE-VERTE, Quebec (AP) — Using steam to melt the ice, investigators searched the frozen-over ruins of a retirement home Friday for victims of a fire that left at least eight people dead and about 30 missing. The tragedy cast such a pall over the village of 1,500 that psychologists were sent door to door. “It’s absolute desolation,” Mayor Ursule Theriault said. The cause of the blaze that swept through the threestory building early Thursday was under investigation, and police asked the public for any videos or photos that might yield clues. Witnesses told horrific tales of people trapped and killed by the flames. Many of the 50 or so residents were over 85 and used wheelchairs or walkers. Some had Alzheimer’s. Pascal Fillion, who lives nearby, said he saw someone use a ladder to try to rescue a man cornered on his thirdfloor balcony. The man was crying out for help before he fell to the ground, engulfed in flames, Fillion said. The spray from firefighters’ hoses left the senior
citizens home resembling a macabre snow palace, the ruins encased in thick white ice dripping with icicles. Search teams of police, firefighters and coroners slowly and methodically picked their way through, working in shifts in the extreme cold about 140 miles northeast of Quebec City. The afternoon temperature was around 3 degrees F. The confirmed number of dead climbed to eight with the discovery of three more bodies. Quebec Provincial Police Lt. Guy Lapointe said exhausted investigators would suspend the search overnight and resume Saturday morning. He said authorities decided to give the search crew a break from the brutal cold and the difficult work. The work is specialized, and there is a limited number of people who can be assigned to the task, he said. “The decision was taken that it was better for the safety, for the well-being of our crew, to let them rest,” Lapointe said. “Meanwhile, we’re looking at bringing in more equipment for the steam.”

North Bend dunks Siuslaw BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World
NORTH BEND — With just under two minutes left and North Bend’s 61-43 Friday win over Siuslaw already cemented, a rebound squirted through Levi Rider’s arms as he dove with two Vikings sandwiching him. Even up 58-40 in garbage time, as the ball trickled into a Siuslaw player’s hand, Rider slapped both his palms against the hardwood like he just fumbled in the Super Bowl. The play is just a microcosm of the “Doesn’t matter who, doesn’t
matter how” motto the Bulldogs have adopted from head coach Tom Nicholls. “It was a simple play. We do it every day in practice, and I thought I could do it then too,” Rider said. “I just came out and played how coach wanted me to. Played my role.” Rider finished with 17 points and seven rebounds on Friday and only missed two shots (including free throws) on the night. Rider — along with Ty Roane — were the catalysts behind North Bend’s big 19-2 run to start the third quarter and essentially ice the game. Both had seven in the quarter and Roane
went on to finish with 15 points and four 3-pointers. On defense, Nicholls said he moved from zone to man-to-man for the second half. With how his team responded to the adjustment, he didn’t want to fix something that wasn’t broken. “You want to keep it going,” Nicholls said. “I wasn’t going to go back to zone at that point. I think as a coach, if you have a combination that’s working for it, you ride it out.” Unfortunately for Siuslaw, big runs by the opposition to start the second half have become a yearlong trend.
“It’s happened all season,” Viking’s guard Sammy Johnson said. “We play great for the first half and the second half comes, something clicks, we fall asleep for a couple minutes and teams take over. If we can fix that we’re good.” Preston Mitchell had 16 points and Joseph Dotson added 15 for the Vikings in the losing effort. The win gives North Bend a 5-1 league record and positions them in a tie with Marshfield for the Far West League lead halfway through their conference slate. SEE BULLDOGS | B2
Marshfield grapplers claim two victories BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World
COOS BAY — It looks like the tide has turned for Marshfield’s wrestling program. The Pirates took out Brookings-Harbor 719 and Douglas 54-18 in a pair of dual meets at Pirate Palace on Thursday. The scores were lopsided because the Bruins and the Trojans were forced to forfeit a combined 15 matches for not having full teams, something Marshfield remembers all too well. “We expect to win these duals,” Marshfield head coach Travis Wittlake said. “I feel bad for the teams because that’s where we were a year ago, giving up a lot of forfeits,” Wittlake went on to explain. “We just need to match up well against other teams with full lineups and then we’ll feel good.” The Pirates had the chance to find out how they fared against a full lineup when they went to Redmond for the Oregon Classic last week. The Pirates were pitted against Crook County and Scappoose — two elite wrestling programs in the state — and Thaddeus Nelson was the only Pirate to get a win between the two matches. “We got beat up. Bad,” Wittlake said.

Tyler Tresch had 14 points for the Braves, who scored just two points in the first quarter. “We couldn’t score,” said Reedsport coach Dan Kenagy of his team, which remains winless in league play.

MYRTLE POINT — A terrible start and poor first half weren’t enough to get Myrtle Point’s boys basketball team down Friday night. When the Bobcats started playing good, they dominated visiting Coquille in the second half, pulling away from the Red Devils for a 60-43 win — the first over their rivals for any of the current players. “We just needed to play our game,” said speedy point guard Thomas Nathan, who sparked the second-half surge with his passing and drives to the hoop. “When we do that, we’re hard to beat.” The Bobcats didn’t panic when Coquille scored the first nine points and Myrtle Point missed its first eight shots. Taylor Fischer finally ended the drought with a 3-pointer with 1:35 to go in the opening quarter and the Bobcats chipped away at the Coquille lead. It didn’t hurt that the Red Devils also were struggling offensively, and unlike Myrtle Point, Coquille never got better. Myrtle Point was just 1-for-11 from the floor in the first quarter and 6-for-28 in the first half, but trailed just 21-20 at the break because Coquille was just 6-for24. But the Bobcats shot a blistering 13-for-20 in the second half, and went in front for good on a 3pointer by Fischer that started an 11-0 run late in the third quarter. That was just one of two treys by the Bobcats in the second half, when they got most of their hoops at the rim, the majority either scored or assisted by Nathan. “We needed energy and we brought it,” Nathan said. “That was a great team effort.” Nathan finished with 20 points and seven assists on the night and nine of the Bobcats’ 13 secondhalf hoops came off assists. Cooper Stateler added 12 points and four assists and Fischer had 14 points and four steals. Freshman Jake Miller added eight points, all in the second half.

Vikings pull away from Bulldogs BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World
NORTH BEND — For the first 16 minutes, North Bend’ girls were on there way to their first Far West League basketball win of the year, holding Siuslaw’s Ashlee Cole scoreless in the process. But after a 13-0 run to start to start the third quarter and 17 second-half points from Cole, Siuslaw was able to beat the host Bulldogs 46-41 on Friday. North Bend had the lead to end the first and second quarters. But after halftime, Cole erupted for seven of Siuslaw first nine points in the third quarter. After a Cole basket tied the score at 16 just 1:23 into the second half, the Bulldogs’ never tasted the lead again. Siuslaw went on to outscore North Bend 34-25 in the second half. After the game, Cole gave all the credit to her coaches. “My coach kind of kicked me in the
butt and told me to get out if my own head and get hot,” Cole said. “First half it was terrible. I couldn’t get into it. I was rushing my shot a lot. I just took my time a lot more in the second half.” When asked after the game. North Bend’s coach Eric Metcalf had to give credit where it was due. “She’s a good ball player,” he said of Cole. “It seems like in the second half we’d have four girls in the right position but one would be out of sync and (Cole) would be in the right place at the right time.” The biggest threat offensively for North Bend — forward Codi Wallace — wasn’t able to get herself going until the second half. After struggling from the field in the first half, Wallace came back to go 2-for-5 in the last two quarters and finish with a team-high 14 points with six rebounds. “The second half definitely boosted my confidence,” Wallace said. “I have a problem where if my shots don’t fall, I
stop shooting. I just have to remember to keep shooting and my shots will eventually fall.” Fellow freshman Hailey Finnigan was a bright spot for the Bulldogs. She was a ballhawk all night picking-pockets and disrupting passing lanes to finish with eight steals. She wasn’t only an asset on defense, Finnigan finished with 10 points, four rebounds and a couple assists. She was able to characterize what happened to her team in the second half pretty easily. “In the second half we got a little tired. We were really excited at first and just got down,” Finnigan said. “I was just trying to follow the ball and get as many points and steals as I could.” The loss leaves North Bend winless in the Far West League with an 0-6 record midway through the league schedule. North Bend will have plenty of time to regroup. They won’t play again Tuesday, Feb. 4, at home against South Umpqua.

Sutherlin 52, Douglas 19: The unbeaten Bulldogs wrapped up the first half of the league season with a dominant win. Sutherlin faces what might be its biggest test when the second half of the league season starts next Friday with a trip to Brookings-Harbor. Douglas, meanwhile, is in third place and visits fourthplace Marshfield to open the second round. Brookings-Harbor 70, South Umpqua 26: The Bruins stayed a game behind Sutherlin with the easy home win.

costly mistakes like the ones that cost them Thursday. “So many big guys are one mistake away from the end,” Wittlake said. “You get a great big guy on you, its hard to get up.” Cesar Castro had the most heartbreaking loss of the night, falling to the Bruins’ Tyler Marrington after a reversal in the final minutes gave Marrington three late points and the 4-2 decision at 160 pounds. Justin Gearhart lost to the Bruins’ Jess Fitzhugh by pin 1:37 seconds into the second round at 132 pounds. Gearhart went on to win his second match against Douglas’ Landon Garard by a 4-1 decision. A bright spot at 138 Logan pounds was Entglemeier, who also coasted to two wins. The Pirate beat Brookings-Harbor’s Vincent Jackson with a pin 1:13 into the second round after amassing a 10-0 lead. In
the second match against Douglas’ Justin Oviatt, Entglemeier dominated the whole way and was able to restrain a wiggling Oviatt to pin him with 10 seconds left in the first round. Nelson was his typical dominant self, winning both matches by pin at 126 pounds while still recovering from being out of action nearly a month with a back injury. In the first match against Brookings-Harbor’s Braden Chapman, Nelson jumped out to a 8-3 lead in the first minute and cradled Chapman with 40 seconds left in the first round for the pin. Against Douglas’ Carter Dahl, Nelson was up 17-4 in the second round before getting the pin. Nelson admitted he kept letting his opponent get up and said he typically backs off the pedal in these league matches and tries to elongate them for one reason.
“Mat time,” Nelson said, expounding. “Obviously more mat time always gets your technique better and I get in shape too, since I’ve been out for awhile.” Five Marshfield wrestlers; Ryder Mckee (106), Chase Dibala (113), Tyler Gregory (152), Brandon Morgan (183), Kaleb Campbell (285), all weren’t able to wrestle on Thursday because neither Douglas nor BrookingsHarbor had anyone in their respective weight classes. Two matches ended early due to injury. Marshfield’s John Black was forced to leave his 17-0 match 47 seconds in after injury his knee — Wittlake didn’t know how bad it was after the match. Marshfield 120-pounder Tyler Campbell didn’t get to finish his match either after his Douglas opponent Ryan Oviatt injured his neck 54 seconds into the first round.
sweet. “I feel like we’ve become a lot better,” Drew Matthews said. “I’d rather not have that loss to Sutherlin, but we’re still No. 1 in league and I know we can win out from here.“ The loss to Sutherlin still looms large for Rider who
had some costly missed layups and turnovers down the stretch against the league’s other Bulldogs. The superstitious Rider blamed wearing two pairs of socks instead of three. After his standout game Friday, his ritual might have some credence.
“I blame it on the socks,” Rider said. “I’ve gotten a lot more confidence since then.” North Bend will host Cascade Christian next Friday in a nonleague game before jumping back into league play the following Tuesday against South Umpqua.
From Page B1 Dornbusch was resilient and immediately escaped and returned the favor with a takedown of his own, putting him up 5-4 heading into the third round. Dornbusch kept Garard at bay the final round and settled his score with a 54 decision. “My goal was to come out, wrestle him hard and beat him,” said Dornbusch, who also had a second-round pin against Brooking-Harbor’s Isaiah Ross. “It was kind of a little bit of revenge.” Both of Marshfield’s upper-weight athletes who did wrestle on Thursday, Chris Alonzo (195) and Austin Adams (220), lost in first-round pins against Douglas. With his bigger wrestlers, Wittlake is focused on keeping the score tight and not making too many

MYRTLE POINT — After Coquille’s girls struggled on offense in a loss to Glide on Tuesday, coach Tim GeDeros gave the team a simple message: Slow down. The Red Devils took the concept to heart Friday, running away from Myrtle Point in the second half for a 58-28 win over the host Bobcats. “I think we ran our offense real well,” said Marina Wilson, one of five Coquille players with six or more points in the game. The Red Devils shot 27for-57 from the floor and all nine players who got into the game scored. “We had a lot of good looks,” said Coquille coach Tim GeDeros. “We’re seeing the court well.” Maddy Grant benefited most from the good passing, scoring a career-best 21 points on 10-for-15 shooting from the floor. She had lots of help. Kaitlyn Hyatt scored eight points, Marina Wilson had seven and Darian Wilson and Ashley Thompson scored six each. Thompson and Tori Renard each had four assists and Tara Edwards added three. The Red Devils jumped in front 14-3 in the first few minutes, setting the tone. “We have not had a (good) first quarter in so long,” said Grant, who also had a teambest eight rebounds. “It’s real nice to play an entire game as a team.” Myrtle Point stayed within striking distance through the first half, but never had a
big run. The Bobcats were within 29-21 after a 3-pointer by Lyndzi Robbins midway through the third quarter, but Coquille went on a 17-1 run that stretched into the fourth quarter and put the game out of reach. The Bobcats had several of their 26 turnovers during that big run. “For us to be competitive, we can’t have mistakes,” Myrtle Point coach Marty Stallard said. “We had it down to six late in the second quarter and I thought we would fight through it. Then the wheels came off.” The win was important for Coquille to get its confidence back after Tuesday’s loss to Glide, when the Red Devils were awful offensively for the first three quarters before a big rally came up short. “Tuesday was motivation,” Grant said. The Red Devils know if they beat Bandon on Tuesday to lock up a Class 3A playoff spot, they are essentially playing to improve their power ranking. “Our job now is getting our RPI up,” GeDeros said. The better Coquille’s final ranking, the less likely they will have to play one of the top three teams in their playoff game. Myrtle Point, meanwhile, can still earn a spot in the Class 2A district playoffs, with big games coming up against Gold Beach and Reedsport, who already beat the Bobcats once. They visit Gold Beach on Tuesday and host Reedsport on Friday. Robbins led the Bobcats with nine points Friday.
North Bend grapplers split dual matches THE WORLD North Bend’s wrestling team split a pair of duals at Sutherlin High School on Thursday, beating South Umpqua 54-21 but falling to Sutherlin 44-27. Against South Umpqua, the Bulldogs got consecutive pins by Phillip Kuckuck (152 pounds), Fred Barahona (160), Aaron Wagner (170) and Jake Buck (182). North Bend’s other five wins all came by forfeit. South Umpqua got pins by Derrick Hargraves (113 pounds), Cameron Cranshaw (126) and Josh Buehler (195). In North Bend’s other dual, Sutherlin was on the dominant end. Sutherlin got pins by Jeremiah Scroggins (113 pounds), Michael McKinney (120), Branden Carrillo (132), Lucas Erickson (152) and Casey Cobert (285). Sutherlin’s other wins were decisions by Stuart Hainey (138), William McKinney (145) and Matthew Armstrong (220), plus one forfeit. North Bend got pins by Nathan Mersino (126
BOBCATS From Page B1 “I was pleased with the second half,” Myrtle Point coach Dave Larsen said. “The first half, we didn’t play well, but we hung in there.” “We just kept our composure,” Stateler said, adding that the team was more efficient after halftime. “We were a lot smarter with the basketball,” he said. Coquille’s shooting never warmed up, and the Red Devils didn’t capitalize on numerous chances. Coquille finished with a 47-27 rebounding edge, including 21 offensive boards, but shot just 15-for-57 for the game (26 percent). Terrence Edwards had 15 points and 12 rebounds and Joe Scolari added 13 points. Coquille also was hurt by foul trouble, when its two most active defenders and rebounders early in the game — Drew Piburn and Brayden Schmitt — were sent to the bench midway through the second with their third fouls and early in the third with their fourth. They each finished with eight rebounds,
pounds), Wagner, Buck and Zach Schneider (195) as well as a decision by Barahona. The two matches also showed North Bend’s improved depth, since the Bulldogs only had to give up a forfeit at 106 pounds. North Bend coach Larry Workman said, “106-pounders are hard to come by,” but added that he was pleased with how his team did. “Aaron Wagner and firstyear wrestlers Jake Buck and Fred Barahona all won both their matches,” he said. “Our team is predominantly freshmen, so our younger guys didn’t fare too well, but they are growing every time they hit the mat. They want to be the best and are anxious to find film and find out what they need to improve upon, and that determination is what it takes to be successful in wrestling.” Workman expects good things in the future. “You have to want to be the best, and these young guys are going to dominate with their attitude,” he said. “Plus, they work their tails off.”
but had all but three of them in the first half. “We didn’t play our best, that’s for sure,” Edwards said. The good news for Coquille is that even though the first loss to their rival stings, their bigger game is Tuesday, when Bandon visits and Coquille has a chance to pull even with the Tigers in the race for the Sunset Conference’s top seed to the Class 3A playoffs. “Tuesday is definitely the one we want,” Edwards said. He added the Red Devils won’t have any trouble bouncing back from Friday’s loss, and will seek to get a big night from their full-court pressure, which wasn’t effective against Myrtle Point’s talented guards. “We definitely have to put a lot of pressure on them,” Edwards said. On Friday, Coquille was the team with more turnovers — 22 to 14 — as Myrtle Point won the race to many of the loose balls. “That was fun,” Stateler said. “They’re a great team, too.” On Friday, Myrtle Point was better.

Sports Italians defend doubles crown
Nadal rolls past Federer in semis MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The way Rafael Nadal managed to somehow retrieve a forehand midway through the second set shocked even Roger Federer, who has been on the receiving end of the Spaniard’s unbelievable shots more than anyone else in Grand Slams. It was a tipping point in their Australian Open semifinal. Federer had lost the first-set tiebreaker but was still throwing his whole arsenal at Nadal. At 15-30 in the sixth game of the second set, Federer thought he’d wrong-footed Nadal with a volley deep into the left corner. Nadal lunged for a desperate forehand, swinging just as the ball was about to bounce for the second time and angling it back over the net. Federer, in good position but not expecting he’d need to play another shot, framed a volley. It gave Nadal a breakpoint, and he quickly broke Federer for the first time in the match. He completed his 23rd
win in 33 head-to-heads, and ninth in 11 Grand Slam matches, 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-3 in 2 hours and 24 minutes against the 17-time major winner. A win over another Swiss, No. 8-seeded Stan Wawrinka, in Sunday’s final, would give Nadal a 14th Grand Slam title and make him the first man to win all four majors at least twice in the Open era. Nadal missed the 2013 Australian Open during a seven-month layoff for illness and a knee injury, but returned to win the French and U.S. Opens among his 10 titles for the season and finished the year at No. 1. He won the Australian Open in 2009, beating Federer in the final, and lost in a five-set, 5hour, 53-minute 2012 final to Novak Djokovic after ousting Federer in the semis. In other years, he’s struggled with injuries — it’s the only Grand Slam tournament he hasn’t won at least twice. “It’s really, really emo-

had more problems in my career.” Injuries kept him out of the 2006 Australian Open and hampered his progress in the 2010 and ’11 quarterfinals. “Lot of years I didn’t have a chance to play in this tournament that I really love so much with the perfect condi-
tions,” he said. “So is very special have the chance to be in the final here again.” By reaching his first major final with a win over Tomas Berdych on Thursday night, Wawrinka ensured he’d replace Federer as Switzerland’s highestranked player for the first time.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Top-ranked Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci rallied to win the last five games and successfully defended their Australian Open women’s doubles title with a 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 victory over Russian pair Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina on Friday. Italians Errani and Vinci are the first women’s doubles team to win back-to-back Australian titles since Serena and Venus Williams in 2010. “For sure I want to thank Roberta because she supports me,” Errani said after the match. “We have a lot of tense moments but with her everything is easier.” Four-time Grand Slamwinners Errani and Vinci dominated early, getting two service breaks to jump to a 51 in the first set.

Seahawks title could ease Seattle’s miserable past BY TIM BOOTH The Associated Press SEATTLE — Standing in the middle of the locker room, nodding his head to the beat of the music thumping with bone shaking bass, Ben Haggerty absorbed the scene. As he shook hands with players and coaches who for the most part lacked association to Seattle other than employment as members of the Seahawks, Haggerty watched the chaos around him with special appreciation as a hometown native. Better than most, Haggerty knew how special the moment was as the Seahawks celebrated winning an NFC title and getting to the Super Bowl, because they happen so infrequently in Seattle. “This is the team.At the beginning of the year, preseason, it was like this was the team to do it,” said Haggerty, a Seattle native better known to his millions of fans as Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Macklemore. “All these guys, the defense, Russ, Pete, everybody, it’s been an amazing year to watch. We deserve to be there.” The last sentence Macklemore uttered is the one that is so rare in Seattle. This is the region of jets and technology, of guitar riffs and coffee.
It’s not a place where expecting championships is the norm, because there’s been so much disappointment in the past. The last time one of Seattle’s major franchises had a parade to celebrate a title came in 1979 when the SuperSonics won the NBA title and no one on the Seahawks current roster was born. To call Seattle’s championship history thin is an understatement. The crushing losses along the way have become so plentiful that disappointment has become the default expectations for most fans in these parts. But this group is different. And maybe that’s why there is so much support behind these Super Bowlbound Seahawks. Seattle fans are not ones to puff out their chest with swagger and bravado because there’s so little substance beyond the front. It’s hard to brag on a national scale when the only professional titles won over the past 30-plus years came from your WNBA franchise. That’s not to belittle what the Seattle Storm accomplished, winning championships in 2004 and 2010.But it’s not something that registers. Even the success of the Seattle Sounders, winning two U.S. Open
Cup championships and becoming the model for expansion success doesn’t resonate beyond a select audience. Creating a world-respected soccer atmosphere is an achievement fans in Seattle take great pride about. Yet, it remains a blip on a broader scale. That’s why this group of Seahawks has taken hold of Seattle and the entire Pacific Northwest the same way music like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and others swallowed the region in the late 1980s and early 90s. They have fun. They dance. They brag. They ride the thin border between confident and cocky and their coach encourages all those traits. They are the antithesis of what Seattle has been. And because of that, their legions have grown exponentially. The “12th Man” is real — sometimes overly so — that has engulfed far more than just Seattle and the Puget Sound region. “We have the best sports fans in America and to be able to give them this opportunity to play in the Super Bowl, possibly win a Super Bowl, that would be huge for this whole state,” said Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, one of two Washington natives on the roster. “They’ve had our backs through the
losses, through the wins, through the ups and the downs. They deserve it just as much.” This version of the Seahawks also differs because they’ve managed so far to meet the expectations heaped upon them. They haven’t teased as teams in the past 20 years have. They are not the 1994 Seattle SuperSonics who had the best record in the NBA during the regular season then became the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 8 seed in the opening round of the playoffs. They aren’t the 1995 Seattle Mariners, a feel-good story that helped save baseball in the Northwest by rallying from 13 games behind in August to win the AL West title then stunned the New York Yankees in a five-game division series victory but could go no further. They’re not the 1996 Sonics who had the misfortune of running into the 72-win Bulls in the NBA finals. And they aren’t the 2001 Mariners who tied the major league record with 116 regular-season wins but were no answer for the Yankees in the postseason. It wasn’t that long ago sports in Seattle had sunk to a point where it was in consideration as the most miserable sports town in the coun-
try. The 2008 year was exceptionally bad, the uppercuts coming one after another. It all started with the SuperSonics leaving Seattle after 41 years and relocating to Oklahoma City in the summer of 2008, a blow with wounds that still sting more than five years later. The Mariners lost 101 games with a payroll of more than $100 million. The Washington football team went 012 during the 2008 season and the Seahawks were 4-12. There is optimism on the horizon — beyond just the Seahawks. There remain hopes of the NBA coming back and with it, an NHL franchise. The Mariners lured Robinson Cano away from New York as a free agent in the offseason. And the Sounders have one of the best American players in Clint Dempsey. Yet all that hope will have a crowning achievement if the Seahawks can beat Denver and claim their first Super Bowl title. “We all have those kinds of dreams. So we need to take note and recognize how special it is and be grateful for the guys that’s helped us get there which is the guys in our room,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “ ... I think we’re very fortunate to have come together at this time to make this happen.”

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (99) and Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, right, both of Team Sanders, sign autographs after Pro Bowl practice at Kapolei High School on Friday.
Pro Bowl is a fitting encore BY OSKAR GARCIA The Associated Press KAPOLEI, Hawaii — Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez thought he was done playing football a few weeks ago. Now, he says he’s getting an ideal finish to his career with his 14th Pro Bowl. Gonzalez said after practicing Friday that it’s now up to players to put on an entertaining game to create a higher quality Pro Bowl. “It hasn’t been where it could be and where I think it’s going to be this year,” Gonzalez said. “It’s up to us to go out there and put on a performance.” Players have to balance the game’s demands while limiting health risks for their own teams and fans in a sport with lots of injuries, Gonzalez said. “The thing people have to understand ... you just want to be healthy,” he said. “We can’t go out there and give 100 percent effort, because it’s not worth it.” Gonzalez has a Pro Bowl record 49 receptions. He finished his NFL career with 1,325 receptions, 15,127 yards and 111 touchdowns — all records for tight ends. He also had a tight end record of 31 games with at least 100 receiving yards.
Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten says he’s learned a lot from Gonzalez over his nine selections to the all-star game. He says Gonzalez has changed the way tight ends are used around the league. “We’ve had discussions and played together seven or eight times in this game, and he’s somebody I respect,” Witten said. Gonzalez and Witten are the two most veteran Pro Bowlers set to play Sunday in a game that’s become partly about age, depending on who’s asked. NFL great Deion Sanders said going into the two-day draft used to select the teams that he didn’t want any all-stars with more than four Pro Bowls on his resume. Sanders picked one team, Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice picked the other under the game’s new “unconferenced” format. The approach sparked spirited jabs from Rice and others, including Indianapolis linebacker Robert Mathis, on the value of picking veterans for the game. Rice wondered before the draft whether it was just a ploy by Sanders to motivate players or disguise a different strategy.
But Sanders followed through on his promise. The 44 players on his team boast an average 2.3 Pro Bowl selections, while Rice’s players average 2.8 Pro Bowl selections each. Additionally, Sanders has 30 players playing in their first or second Pro Bowl, compared with 26 for Rice. Rice says the ages don’t matter — that the game is in the hands of the players. “I have a great group of guys that’s going to go out there and bring that old tradition back to Hawaii and I think they’re ready to go,” Rice said after a practice in which he played catch with San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers and mingled with players and coaches. “I wouldn’t say I have a more veteran team. I think I have a mixture of everything and I think it’s the same thing with Deion,” he said. Sanders said he got exactly the players he wanted in the draft. “We both played in the Pro Bowl, we know there’s a certain point in your career where you get full and you’re not hungry,” Sanders said. “And some of these guys aren’t. Unfortunately, that’s a cold-hearted fact.”
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— Peyton Manning is the only player in this Super Bowl who has won the big game. He’s also lost one. So, he knows both the elation of putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy and the anguish of watching it slip through his grasp, and he admonished his Denver Broncos teammates not to cut corners as they prepare to face the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2. “I think the biggest thing he’s said is eliminate distractions, making sure you’re taking care of the little details, doing extra, watching film, working out, getting your body right,” receiver Eric Decker said. “And then I think the biggest thing is he says he’s won one, he’s lost one. And it’s a complete high; it’s a complete low. So, really understand to give everything you’ve got because this is the last game of the year.” Tight end Jacob Tamme was also Manning’s teammate in Indianapolis when the Colts lost to the Saints in the Super Bowl in 2010. “It’s an empty feeling,” Tamme said. “I mean, you’re certainly proud of what you did to get that far. But it’s an empty feeling to get to this game and not win it. So, we’re going to prepare hard and do everything we can to let it loose on Sunday and just play our best ball. That’s all we can do, just play our best ball. We know we’ve got a stiff challenge.” Wes Welker caught 11 passes for 103 yards for New England in the Super Bowl following the 2007 season, but the Patriots’ shot at per-
ended when fection Manning’s brother, Eli, threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds left to give the Giants a 17-14 win. Welker said Friday that’s the lowest point of his career and the driving force in his life. “I think it’s the reason I get up in the morning in the offseason and even now,” he said. “We’re close again and I’m just trying to make the most of it.” cornerback Broncos RodgersDominique Cromartie nearly won a ring with the 2008 Arizona Cardinals, when he had five solo tackles and broke up two passes against Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl only to watch Ben Roethlisberger’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with 35 seconds left give Pittsburgh a 27-23 victory. DRC said he’s “excited, anxious, nervous, ready to get there” for his second chance at the ultimate prize. None of the Seattle Seahawks have ever played in a Super Bowl, the first team with zero previous Super Bowl experience since the Bills lost to the Giants in 1991. Besides the four Broncos who have played in the Super Bowl, three of their coaches have won rings: defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio (linebackers coach for Baltimore in 2000), offensive consultant Alex Gibbs (Oline coach in Denver 199798) and secondary coach Cory Undlin (defensive assistant with Patriots in 2004). Of course, Executive Vice President John Elway has two rings from the back-to-back titles he won in the late 1990s following three trips to the Super Bowl that ended in losses.
Ex-Cowboy Brent gets 180 days in jail, probation DALLAS (AP) — Former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent avoided prison Friday and instead was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation for a drunken car crash that killed his friend and teammate, Jerry Brown. Brent was convicted Wednesday of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash on a suburban Dallas highway that killed Brown, who was a passenger in Brent’s car. Brent could have been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. He was also fined $10,000. Brent, 25, closed his eyes when the judge read the jury’s verdict. He was kept in custody after the hearing. One of his attorneys, Kevin Brooks, described the former defensive tackle as “somber.” “I’m really kind of overwhelmed with the results,” Brooks said. “It’s kind of
what we’ve been fighting for from Day 1. I’m happy for Josh. Josh is still sad and grieving and that’s something he’s going to carry with him the rest of his life.” Brent’s family members and supporters cried and hugged as the courtroom emptied after the hearing. His mother, LaTasha Brent, spoke briefly as she left the courthouse, saying she was there to support her son. Brown’s mother, Stacey Jackson, wasn’t in the courtroom when the verdict was read. She publicly forgave Brent, and said during Thursday’s sentencing proceedings: “He’s still responsible, but you can’t go on in life holding a grudge. We all make mistakes.” Jackson was the last wit-
ness the jury heard, and lead 23-17 victory.

In four seasons in Detroit, the 47-year-old Schwartz was 29-51. That included a 10-6 finish in 2011 when the Lions reached the playoffs for the first time in
Caserio interviews for Dolphins GM job MIAMI (AP) — New England Patriots executive Nick Caserio became the eighth candidate to interview for the job of general manager with the Miami Dolphins, who may finally be near a 1 decision after a 2 ⁄ 2-week search. After Caserio met Friday with the Dolphins, they had a second interview with Brian Gaine, the team’s assistant general manager. Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson is also believed to be a finalist. Caserio, the Patriots’ director of player personnel, has been in charge of their personnel department since 2008 and rebuilt a team that reached the AFC title game this season.

Carmelo drops 62 on Bobcats NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony scored a career-high and franchise-record 62 points, most at the current Madison Square Garden, and the New York Knicks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 125-96 on Friday night to stop a five-game losing streak. Anthony made 23 of 35 shots, one when he leapt from halfcourt to beat the halftime buzzer, and even added 13 rebounds in the NBA’s highest-scoring performance this season. Anthony had 56 after three quarters, bettering Kevin Durant’s previous season high of 54, and stayed in for the first few minutes of the fourth to break Bernard King’s Knicks record of 60 points and Kobe Bryant’s arena record of 61, set five years ago. It was easily the highlight of the season for Anthony, on pace to miss the playoffs for the first time in his career and facing frequent questions about his future with the team as he heads into free agency this summer. Thunder 101, Celtics 83: NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant missed his first game of the season and Serge Ibaka scored 21 points to lead the Thunder to a victory over the Celtics. It was the Western Conference-leading Thunder’s sixth straight victory. Jeremy Lamb came off the bench to score 19 points, and former Celtics center Kendrick Perkins had nine rebounds for Oklahoma City. The Thunder were playing with neither Durant nor Westbrook for the first time since the franchise moved from Seattle in 2008. Timberwolves 121, Warriors 120: Kevin Martin hit a step-back jumper with 8.4 seconds left, lifting the Timberwolves over the Warriors for their third straight victory. Martin finished with 26 points despite playing with a cut on his right pinkie. Kevin Love added 26 points and 14 rebounds in a back-and-forth game that featured just about everything — except defense. Harrison Barnes missed an open jumper before the final buzzer sounded, leaving Golden State with its second consecutive loss. Stephen Curry had 33 points and 15 assists for the Warriors. Pacers 116, Kings 111, OT: Paul George scored eight of his 36 points in overtime and the Pacers defeated the Kings. The Pacers overcame a 17-point deficit and rallied in the fourth quarter to tie the game. Marcus Thornton scored 42 points and hit seven 3-pointers for the Kings. Isaiah Thomas tied a career high with 38. Lance Stephenson had 24 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Indiana.

Charlotte Bobcats’Anthony Tolliver (43) and Bismack Biyombo guard New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony (7) during the fourth quarter Friday at Madison Square Garden. Anthony scored 62 points as the Knicks defeated the Bobcats 125-96. David West had 22 points and both Roy Hibbert and George Hill scored 10. Spurs 105, Hawks 79: Tim Duncan had 17 points and 16 rebounds in another dominant performance against Atlanta and the Spurs coasted to a win over the short-handed Hawks. Duncan, who blocked four shots, and point guard Tony Parker didn’t return after leaving the game with the Spurs leading 77-50 late in the third quarter. The Spurs used backup players in the fourth. Paul Millsap’s 15 points led the Hawks, who set a season scoring low. Raptors 104, 76ers 95: Kyle Lowry had 18 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, and DeMar DeRozan scored 34 points to help the Raptors beat the 76ers. DeRozan scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, including seven straight early in the period as the Raptors opened a double-digit lead. Magic 114, Lakers 105: Tobias Harris had 28 points and a career-high 20 rebounds to lift the Orlando Magic to a 114-105 victory over the Lakers. Arron Afflalo added 23 points and Jameer Nelson scored 22 as the Magic won for only the second time in their last 14 games. Pau Gasol led Los Angeles with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Pelican 103, Pistons 101: Eric Gordon’s driving layup with 1.9 seconds left gave the Pelicans a victory over the Pistons.
Pilots win in 3OTs PORTLAND (AP) — Thomas van der Mars scored 27 points, grabbed 18 rebounds and sparked the go-ahead run in triple overtime that lifted Portland to a 114-110 win over BYU on Thursday night, despite 48 points from Tyler Haws. After battling back from an eight-point deficit in the second OT, Portland (12-8, 4-4 West Coast Conference) forced a third overtime period with a 3-pointer from Bobby Sharp that tied it at 103. Van der Mars then sparked a 7-0 run with a tipin and a pair of free throws as the Pilots held BYU 1 (13-8, 5-3) scoreless over the first 3 ⁄2 minutes, then hung on for the win, snapping the Cougars’ five-game winning streak. Sharp contributed 27 points, Ryan Nicholas and Kevin Bailey added 15 apiece, and Bryce Pressley had 12 for Portland, which shot 47 percent from the field and hit 14 of 23 from 3-point range.
Detroit wasted a 28-point performance from Brandon Jennings and 21 points and 20 rebounds from Andre Drummond. Nets 107, Mavericks 106: Mirza Teletovic scored 24 of his 34 points in the second quarter and Deron Wiliams had 18 points and 11 assists as the Nets beat the Mavericks for their fourth straight win. The Nets improved to an NBA best 9-1 in January. Grizzlies 88, Rockets 87: Courtney Lee scored 19 points, Zach Randolph added 15 and the Grizzlies held off the Rockets. Houston’s Chandler Parsons had a career-high 34 points and made 10 3-pointers — all in the second half. It is an NBA record for 3s in a half and a franchise record for 3s in a game. Clippers 112, Bulls 95: Blake Griffin had 26 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Clippers to a victory over the Bulls. Carlos Boozer scored 22 points for the Bulls, who snapped a three-game winning streak. Cavaliers 93, Bucks 78: Anderson Varejao scored 16 points and Kyrie Irving had 10 points and 10 assists, leading the Cavaliers over the Bucks. Khris Middleton led Milwaukee (834) with 13 points. Wizards 101, Suns 95: Trevor Ariza scored 23 points, Bradley Beal sank a pair of crucial shots down the stretch and the Wizards opened a four-game road trip with a victory over the Suns.
PORTLAND — LaMarcus Aldridge’s 44-point outburst against the Denver Nuggets came the same day the AllStar starters were announced. Aldridge wasn’t on the list. So naturally there were questions whether his new career-high was perhaps an answer to a perceived snub. “It was nothing about that,” the Trail Blazers’ forward said. “We lost two games and we needed this win.” Aldridge also had 13 rebounds in Portland’s 110105 come-from-behind victory over the Nuggets on Thursday night. Wesley Matthews added 24 points for the Blazers, who snapped a two-game losing streak coming off a 2-2 road trip. The Blazers have not lost three straight this season. Aldridge scored the team’s final 15 points: After missing three of four free throws, he settled down to make eight straight to close out the game. It was his third career game with 40 or more points. “It goes without saying, LaMarcus just keeps impressing everybody with what he’s doing,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said, ticking off the contributions: “He was aggressive to the basket, he made his jump shots, he made his free throws, he rebounded, he came up big when we needed him, he made passes out of the double teams when they doubled, he got blocked shots. He was fantastic.” The Blazers trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter, but chipped away at Denver’s lead to pull to 91-90 on Matthews’ turnaround fadeaway before taking the lead on his 15-foot jumper. The teams wrestled for control, but Aldridge’s jumper put Portland up a 102-99 with 3:08 left. Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov made consecutive baskets to regain the lead for Denver, and it was until back-and-forth Aldridge made four consecutive free throws to shouts of
Ducks’ woes continue at Washington SEATTLE (AP) — C.J. Wilcox made sure Oregon’s slump would continue for at least another game. Washington’s senior guard scored 23 points, including a 3pointer with 43 seconds left that sealed Washington’s 8076 win Thursday night and sent the Ducks to a fifth straight loss. “Wilcox jumped up and made big shots,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “He was the difference in the game. He was the best player on the floor and he made us pay.” Wilcox was 7 of 11 from the floor, including 5 for 6 on 3pointers, and scored six points
1 in the final 2 ⁄ 2 minutes as Washington (12-8, 4-3 Pac-12) held off Oregon (13-5, 1-5) down the stretch, extending the Ducks’ losing streak to five games. Oregon trailed by seven points with 2:59 to play and cut the margin to 73-72 before Wilcox made the 3 that pushed Washington to victory and ended the Huskies’ own twogame skid. Oregon started the season with 13 straight wins, getting all the way to a No. 10 ranking before the losing streak knocked them out of the top 25. “It’s five in a row, there’s no sense in denying it, it’s tough,”

Phil Mickelson watches his tee shot on the second hole of the South Course during the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Friday in San Diego. After the round he withdrew from the tournament because of back pain.
Spieth leads at Torrey Pines SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jordan Spieth turned out to be the star attraction Friday playing with Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines. Spieth again showed game well beyond his 20 years with a 9-under 63 on the North Course, giving him a one-shot lead over Stewart Cink going into the weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open. Cink drilled a 3wood from 280 yards onto the green at the par-5 ninth on the tougher South Course for a two-putt birdie and a 71. Woods rarely gets upstaged at Torrey Pines, where his eight professional wins include the 2008 U.S. Open. But in his first competition in six weeks, Woods hardly looked the part as the defending champion. He did not make birdie on any of the par 5s for the second straight day, and a three-putt bogey on the par-5 ninth hole on the North gave him a 71. He was nine shots behind. Phil Mickelson shot a 1-over 73 on the South Course in the second round, leaving him eight strokes behind Spieth. Spieth was at 10-under 134 and will be in the last group Saturday with Cink and Nicolas Colsaerts, who shot 67 on the South and was two shots behind. The final two rounds will be on the South, which is about 600 yards longer and
“M-V-P,” from the Portland crowd, giving the Blazers a 108-105 lead. Chandler missed a jumper with eight seconds left and Aldridge made more free throws for the final margin. Chandler finished with 18 points for Denver, which has lost three straight and four of their last five games after a five-game winning streak. “LaMarcus Aldridge, the buckets that he made, I can live with that,” Denver coach Brian Shaw said. “But some of the fouls that we committed to send him to the line without him having to really work for it, I thought is what hurt us, especially in the fourth quarter.” Kenneth Faried got two quick fouls early in the game and had to sit, but the Nuggets still led 30-28 at the end of the first quarter, paced by Anthony Randolph off the bench. Nate Robinson’s 3-pointer stretched Denver’s lead to 44-37, and the Nuggets went on to lead by as many as 12 points in the second quarter. Earlier in the day, Aldridge and teammate Damian Lillard were named to the 2014-16 U.S. men’s national team pool, the first step toward making the Olympic team. Faried was also invited. The All-Star team starters were also announced before Thursday night’s game. Aldridge finished fifth in fan voting among Western Conference frontcourt players, while Lillard finished seventh among guards. Both players will have a chance to make the team if they are selected by the league’s coaches. Aldridge, a two-time AllStar, has never been voted a starter by the fans. Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love will make up the Western Conference’s starting frontcourt this season in New Orleans. thought Matthews Aldridge should have made it. “What can you say? He’s an MVP candidate. Best power forward in the game,” Matthews said. “I’ve been saying that for two years now. He put it on display again tonight.”

Bahamas LPGA Classic PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Jessica Korda took the second-round lead in the season-opening Bahamas LPGA Classic, birdieing four of her last seven holes in high wind for a 7-under 66. The 20-year-old Korda had an 11-under 135 total on Atlantis Resort’s Ocean Club course. She won the 2012 Women’s Australian Open for her lone LPGA Tour title. Paula Creamer, playing alongside Korda, was a stroke back after a 65. Michelle Wie and Monday qualifier Jenny Suh were tied for third at 9 under. Wie had a 65, and Suh shot 66. Lydia Ko, the 16-year-old New Zealander who shared the first-round lead, was three strokes back at 8 under after a 70.

Back forces Mickelson to withdraw SAN DIEGO (AP) — Phil Mickelson withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open on Friday night because of muscle pain in his back. Mickelson shot a 1-over 73 on the South Course at Torrey Pines in the second round, leaving him eight

released a statement late Friday evening that Mickelson had decided to withdraw. Mickelson said he would talk to doctors to figure out the best course of action. Mickelson is to defend his title next week in the Phoenix Open.

Unemployment rate slides lower Oregon’s unemployment rate continued its slow decline last month, dropping to 7 percent from 7.3 percent in November. December marked the state’s lowest unemployment rate since 6.7 percent in August 2008, according to the state’s employment department. 132,000 Nearly Oregonians were unemployed as of December,
compared to 160,000 the year prior. But that’s up nearly 2,500 from the number of unemployed in November. While the unemployment rate dropped last month compared to November data, the number of employed Oregonians also dropped more than 16,000. Job growth was strong last year, according to the employment department,
nearly doubling the jobs added in 2012 and 2011 combined. Job gains last month were concentrated in professional and business services, government and “other services,” which includes repair, maintenance, personal and laundry services and membership associations. County unemployment data will be published on Monday.
Q: How do I know what customers want? A: The best way to know what customers want is to ask them. Some of the things you hear might sur- DOWN TO prise you. The main question will be, are you willing to implement the ideas your best cust o m e r s provide? ARLENE Let’s explore SOTO some of the feedback you may hear. Provide better product selection. You’ll need to ask if this means more variety, higher quality merchandise or lower priced products. Maybe the customers are partial to a particular brand they can’t get anywhere else in town. Before making an investment in additional inventory make sure there’s profit potential in implementing this suggestion. Adding new inventory to your selection will only benefit your business if there are enough customers willing to purchase at prices that are

profitable to you. Provide longer hours of operation. Customers want to be able to shop when they have the time. That might mean being open later in the evening or earlier in the morning or on weekends. It might also mean scheduling appointments for customers outside regular operating hours. Maybe they want to be able to shop online. It may be time to analyze when customers actually shop in your establishment; then adjust your hours of operation accordingly or add online shopping capabilities to your website. Good customer service. Do you know how your employees treat customers when you aren’t there? Customer service is the key to the word-of-mouth advertising you hope to generate in the community. You might consider hiring a secret shopper to provide feedback on ways to improve customer service. Training can often help employees provide better customer service. The Oregon Small Business Development Center Network provides regular training opportunities. To find out more, visit www.BizCenter.org.
Accept credit cards or checks, not just cash. There are costs involved with credit cards or checks so make sure you have established profitable pricing that will cover any cost increases. Train employees in verifying that the check or credit card is good. Customers buy because they have wants, needs, concerns or problems. Your business needs to satisfy the customer while still maintaining profitable operations. Often business owners forget to ask customers what can be done to improve their shopping experience next time they visit or even if there is anything else they need at the time of purchase. Customers often just want to know someone is listening to them. Ask your customers for feedback and use that feedback to improve your business. Arlene M. Soto is the director of the SWOCC Small Business Development Center, www.BizCenter.org. She can be reached at 541756-6445, email@example.com, or at 2455 Maple Leaf, North Bend, OR 97459.

Hot stuff: Grow your own tea from your garden BY SARAH WOLFE The Associated Press
Liversidge, author of the forthcoming book “Homegrown Tea: An Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting and Blending Teas and Tisanes” (St. Martin’s Griffin, March 2014). She and other tea gardeners offer the following tips to get your feet wet:
When temperatures fall, there’s nothing better than a piping hot cup of tea. And as craft and organic tea seeps into the mainstream, tea gardens are becoming a popular way for brew lovers to bypass the store and enjoy the benefits of herbal tea without additives or preservatives. “It just tastes and smells better,” says chef Kimmy Tang, who snips mint, lavender and lemongrass from her garden for herbal teas at her 9021PHO restaurants in Los Angeles. “I also know that it’s 100 percent organic. I don’t use any chemicals to help them grow, and I can taste the difference.” It may sound daunting, but British gardener and author Cassie Liversidge says many tea garden staples may already be at your fingertips. “Honeysuckle, mint, rosemary. They’re all quite common plants, but can be turned into tea,” says
Growing First and foremost, no sprawling English estate is required here. Tea gardens come in many forms, and don’t even need to be in the ground. Tang grows her herbs in a vertical garden hanging on a wall behind her restaurants, while other city dwellers cramped for space use pots and other containers. All you need is dirt, water and some seeds. “A great way to get started is to buy a plastic indoor sun garden at Lowe’s or Home Depot, along with the seeds and pieces of dirt that expand with water,” says McCollonough Ceili, a 26year-old author who grows lavender, sage, mint and

other herbs outside her kitchen window in Tennessee. Liversidge recommends easy-to-grow plants like mint, lavender or chamomile for beginners. If you’ve already got those growing, take a stab at other popular tea ingredients like coriander, lemon balm, rose hips, hibiscus and jasmine. Keep the plants in an area that gets at least six hours of sunlight each day, rotate them often and monitor moisture per directions on the seed packet.
Harvesting/drying Each plant is unique when it comes to harvesting. The flower tops are the most medicinal part of the rosemary plant, for example, so be sure to clip those off along with the leaves for tea, Liversidge says. Fennel is valued for its seeds, and those must be shaken out from the flowers once they turn brown. Snip flowers like chamomile at the base of their stems, not the top, so you can use the stems, leaves and petals in your brew, according to Liversidge. Many herbs can be used fresh, but drying them is a good way to keep your tea cupboard stocked through the winter. Tie them up and hang them in bundles to dry, or spread them out on a flat surface in the sun. A dehydrator or an oven at a temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit or lower can also
be used. “With my lemongrass, I cut it and freeze it to keep the nutrients locked in,” says Tang. No matter the method, be sure to store your tea ingredients in airtight containers.
Brewing There are a few ways to brew your homemade tea, depending on the ingredients and personal preference. Hershey, Pa.-based writer and photographer Amy Renea prefers to “chop off big hunks” of fresh mint, lemon balm, chamomile and sometimes stevia from her tea garden and put them right in the tea kettle. Once it’s reached boiling, pull the kettle off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes before pouring into your favorite tea cup. “I strain the tea through a small tea mesh strainer, but any strainer will do,” Renea says. Liversidge prefers filling empty tea bags with homemade ingredients — “then you’re not tempted to put too much water with it” — and letting them steep about three minutes before enjoying. For the freshest tea possible, she advises pouring fresh water into your tea kettle every time. It has more oxygen, which will bring out the tea’s flavor. Here is a recipe for a Vitamin C “power blend” tea from the forthcoming “Medicinal Gardening Handbook” (Skyhorse

Sap aside, pencil cactus is nice indoors and out BY LEE REICH The Associated Press Pencil cactus is a fitting common name for Euphorbia tirucalli, even though the plant would be useless for writing and is not really a cactus. A single plant looks like many slender, green pencils, each stuck on the end or growing off the side of the one before it. A couple of small, elongated leaves perch inconspicuously and briefly at the end of the “pencils,” relegating photosynthesis to the succulent, green stems. Lack of thorns is one indication that this plant is no cactus. Even more telling is the milky sap that oozes from broken or cut stems. That sap and the plant’s flowers — not very showy and rarely appearing indoors — put pencil cactus in the spurge family, along with more familiar houseplants such as poinsettia and crown-ofthorns.
On the positive side, the sap has been used in its native Africa as folk medicine, and to repel mosquitoes and kill rats. It’s also a potential source of latex rubber and oil — 10 to 50 barrels of oil per acre by one reckoning. On the negative side, the sap has been implicated as a potential carcinogen and, if it gets in the eyes, is said to cause temporary blindness. At the very least, it is somewhat toxic and irritates skin, as does the sap of many spurge family plants.
Making new plants All that is necessary to get a pencil cactus started is to snap a few stems, each 2 or 3 inches long, from an existing plant (again, avoiding touching the sap). My pencil cactus cuttings came from a living fence I happened upon during a recent visit to Florida. There was no need to keep those cuttings moist until I returned home because this plant, like all succulents,
roots best if its cut ends are allowed to callous over in dry air before being put in soil. So it wasn’t until I brought my cuttings home that I stuck them into pots of soil, watered them, and then waited each time until the soil was thoroughly dry before watering again.
Growing this pencil Where winter temperatures don’t drop below freezing, pencil cactus can grow outdoors as high as 30 feet. There, the dense tangle of stems and a sap that virtually every animal avoids make the plant an ideal living fence. Where winters are too cold to grow pencil cactus outdoors, it makes a nice houseplant (keeping in mind the cautions about the sap). As a succulent, the plant loves light but otherwise tolerates the threats facing most houseplants: dry air and forgetful watering. If in doubt about whether or not to water this plant, don’t. It
won’t die from under-watering. Taper off or completely avoid watering in winter. Extra perlite added to any potting mix further ensures that the mix drains well and stays on the dry side. One variety that’s particularly attractive indoors or out is “Sticks on Fire.” Its “pencils” are reddish yellow, the red becoming more prominent in cooler weather. Once my pencil cactus plants take root and begin to grow, I may leave them to grow freely like a jumble of branching “pencils” in their pots. Or perhaps I’ll coax them with pruning and bending into a living sculpture. Perhaps I’ll pot them up with a candelabra cactus, another sculptural spurge (Euphorbia lactea, also erroneously called a cactus), which has fat, three-sided, dark green stems with thorns along the ridges. No matter how I grow my new pencil cactus, I’ll be careful to avoid the sap.

It also makes sense financially, according to Eric Belsky, Managing Director of the Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University who is also on the editorial board of the Journal of Housing Research and Housing Policy Debate, in ‘The Dream Lives On: The Future of Homeownership in America.” Looking to answer the question whether recent house price declines and the contraction of mortgage credit will produce a profound and lasting change in Americans’ desire or ability to own homes, Belsky finds that “homeownership, because of its unique properties relative to other possible investments (especially for lowincome families and individuals), will likely remain an important vehicle for building assets as well as a favored option for nonfinancial reasons as well.” Here are five factors he found that “make the choice to own or rent financially consequential – and make ownership relatively attractive:” 1. Housing is typically the one
leveraged investment available. “Few households are interested in borrowing money to buy stocks and bonds and few lenders are willing to lend them the money. As a result, homeownership allows households to amplify any appreciation on the value of their homes by a leverage factor. Even a hefty 20 percent down payment results in a leverage factor of 5 so that every percentage point rise in the value of the home is a 5 percent return on their equity. With many buyers putting 10 percent or less down, their leverage factor is 10 or more.” 2 . Y o u ’ r e p a y in g f o r h o u s i n g whether you own or rent. “Homeowners pay debt service to pay down their own principal while households that rent pay down the principal of a landlord.” 3. Owning is usually a form of “forced savings.” “Since many people have trouble saving and have to make a housing payment one way or the other, owning a home can overcome people’s tendency to defer Homeownership makes sense for countless social and family reasons. savings to another day.” 4.

tended over most time periods to go up at or higher than the rate of inflation, making owning an attractive proposition.”
I’ll be ready for war When parents comport myself during an air raid, how to recognize the silhouettes of both Allied and Axis aircraft, and how to make and i n s t a l l HOUSE blackout curtains. Should the need arise, just give me a call. Not all the information is so STEVE dated, but BATIE … I learned how to transfer a picture to cloth. Of course, I’ll need to secure some tincture of green soap to make it work. I can mix up a batch of modeling clay as soon as I find whiting and lard. I think I still can get the latter at the grocery store. I don’t know about the former. There seem to have been a lot more chemicals commonly available to our foreparents. I can’t remember the last time I saw fluorspar or cobaltic oxide or cryolite or even soda ash on the shelf at the drug store. Frankly, I’m lucky to locate the obscure toothpaste I prefer. I do, however, now have a recipe for mixing up my own. As soon as I find orris root and cuttlefish bone. Sigh. I don’t think it’s likely I’ll
Two or three times a year — as the opportunities present themselves — the staff here at HouseWorks steps back from its position as arbiter of all things homeownerish to become arbiter of all things literary. That is, sometimes I review books. The last time, as a matter of fact, was of a very splashy and very expensive coffee table book filled with photos of log cabins. Whether that review resulted in increased sales (exactly what the publisher hoped and the reason for giving me the book) I don’t know. But I doubt that will be the case of this review. Because “War-T ime Guide Book for the Home,” by the editors of Popular Science, was published in 1942. Yes, THAT war. The “War-Time Guide” came to me from a buddy in New Mexico who ran across it and knew right away that it was something that just had to be part of the HouseWorks library. He was right. I spent a pleasant weekend thumbing through its pages and studying formulas and recipes for methods and processes that I’m pretty sure every handyguy needed to know to keep the home fires burning 70 years ago. For example, in the very first pages I learned how to
ever need to install or service a coal-fired furnace, but if the opportunity presents itself, I’ll be ready. And although the chances are remote I’ll need to install a preserves cabinet in my basement pantry, I now have the directions (not the directions for making the preserves, mind you, just for the cabinet). I don’t mean to suggest the “War-Time Guide” contains nothing but obscure information on bygone products and processes. The chapter headed “First Aid to Damaged Trees” offers exactly the same directions for pruning that I have in any of a dozen modern horticulture books. Some things never change. Also, I now have better directions for making reusable forms should I ever again be weak-minded enough to want to pour my own concrete stepping stones. By the way, I did an Internet search for the “War-Time Guide Book for the Home,” and you can buy used copies. Prices range from about $30 to more than $55. I’m sure the publisher would be gratified.
become lenders THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Family-financed down payment loans are increasingly common. Follow these guidelines to make the process smoother With tightening credit markets, low savings rates and stagnant wages, many first-time homebuyers find themselves struggling to amass a down payment. The solution? Parents. Twenty-seven percent of first-time homebuyers received a down payment as a gift from “the good ol’ bank of mom and dad,” says Walter Molony, economics spokesperson for the National Association of Realtors. Adam McLain, a Chicagobased loan officer with Wintrust Financial cites the Millennial generation for the increase.
“They’re the most conservative generation,” McLain says. But they also recognize a good time to buy. McLain says every third or fourth deal he does has parental cash attached. “The parents are saying, ‘Here’s $50,000, get out of my basement!’” Parents can legally give each child $14,000 per year without worrying about tax implications, according to the IRS. To be more specific, each parent can give a child $14,000, for a total of $28,000 from mom and dad. Moreover, those same parents can give their child’s spouse an additional $28,000 without triggering a tax penalty. Always consult a certified tax professional when dealing with tax liabilities. Here are some guidelines: 1. Season the Funds:
Parents should transfer the cash into the buyer’s account immediately. Lenders look at two months of bank statements. While searching for a house, the cash could be “seasoning” in your account. 2. Cashier’s Check: Another option is to bring a cashier’s check to the closing with all the funds needed t o c lo s e. Lenders are not required to report to the IRS, however, every dollar must be accounted for and documented. 3. The Paper Trail: Ensure there is adequate documentation for how the money ends up in the buyer’s account. For instance, parents could liquidate some stock, deposit the money into their account, write a personal check to their child to physically take that paper check to a teller and deposit at the bank, creating a paper trail.

The most dreaded words: “What’s for dinner?” DEAR MARY: I have been reading your column and implementing your ideas for years, with varying degrees of success (my fault, not yours). The one thing I bless you for every day is eMeals. I just subscribed to eMeals (everydaycheapskate.com/eme als15) at the start of the school year. I am a teacher and have two kids in high school.After 22 years of marriage, grocery shopping had become a dreaded chore. I like cookEVERYDAY but I CHEAPSKATE ing, hated the planning. My son is a picky eater, which made it e v e n harder. M y Mary m o m always Hunt used to write up a menu and make her grocery list from that, so I have always tried to do the same. I even used my local grocery store’s weekly ad to plan my list.It was still something I dreaded. Using eMeals has completely liberated me. It sounds very dramatic,but I really feel like my chains are gone and I’ve been set free.I just go to the grocery store and buy what is on the list. I prepare the (easy) recipes. If my son doesn’t like it, I say “Too bad! It isn’t my fault - blame eMeals.” I never realized how much of my energy was spent DREADING meal planning and grocery shopping. It was a negative mental and emotional vibe that was clouding my weekends. I used to go to the grocery store nearly every day to pick up something,which increased our spending dramatically. Now,I go to the store ONCE a week. I always have what I need on hand. We have tried lots of new foods. My son is actually eating more and more of what I prepare. I have recommended eMeals to a lot of people I know because it’s like a ticket out of jail.If we don’t need 7 meals in a particular week, I just cross one or two off the shopping list. My husband and daughter want to compile a “best of”list,because some of these recipes have been fantastic! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.I love,love,love this service. It is 100 percent worth it! — Coleen C., email DEAR COLLEEN: Thanks for the great feedback. Sometimes readers mistake my personal excitement for a product or service as an audition to become a late-night infomercial pitchman. I only recommend and endorse products and services that I truly believe in and use myself. I am so happy that you have found eMeals to be all that I believe it is, and perhaps even more. I don’t have the feedback from picky teens! My husband and I have never gotten to the point of wanting to rate and review eMeals recipes, but now that I think about it, that’s not such a bad idea! In fact, I love it. I am so proud of you for the progress you’ve made with simplifying meal time in your home and freeing yourself from the tyranny of “What’s for dinner?!” DEAR MARY: Your new book “The Smart Woman’s Guide to Saving for Retirement,” (everydaycheapskate.com/books) sounds so interesting. My question is: For someone my age (70) who didn’t plan well and lives on Social Security alone, is there something in it that would be of a help to me? Thanks. — Georgette, email DEAR GEORGETTE: I cannot promise a magic wand in my new book.However,I do believe that it will give you help and understanding for how you can maximize your resources and perhaps even boost your income. I have to say that 70 is looking a lot younger to me every day.I just read somewhere that 80 is the new 60, which I think would suggest that 70 is the new 50! See how young you are? I want to encourage you in every way I can to not only improve your own situation, but to influence your daughters and granddaughters to begin their own planning now, no matter how young or old they are. I wrote this book for you and them as well. I pray that all of you will read it and take it to heart. Watch your mailbox because I’m sending you a copy, with my compliments.

What caused brandnew timing belt to fail? Dear Tom and Ray: I recently had to have a new water pump put in my 2005 VW Bug. At the same time, they replaced the timing belt. Twenty-three days later, I was stranded because the timing belt broke. After they examined it, they found that the crankshaft pulley was in many pieces, some of which were missing. Of course, they take no blame for this and say it was unrelated. What do you think? Did they break the pulley when they replaced the timing belt? — Kaylyn RAY: They might have. I’d have to say it’s extremely unlikely that a broken crankshaft pulley would break the timing belt, though. It’s possible ... if it broke in a jagged way and tore through the plastic timing belt housing that sits behind it. Possible, but not very likely. TO M : So let me put a more-likely scenario on the table. Perhaps what really broke was the timing belt sprocket, Kaylyn. It sits behind the crankshaft pulley. RAY: To investigate, the first thing you need to do is check your receipt to see if they replaced something called the “front engine seal.” TOM: Normally, that seal gets replaced when you do a timing belt. Not always, but if you want to do a thorough job, you replace the front engine seal and the water pump whenever you do a timing belt job. RAY: Why? Because both of those parts are relatively inexpensive, and they’re easy to access once the timing belt is off. And if either one fails, say, three weeks later,
TOM AND RAY MAGLIOZZI you have to do the timing belt all over again. TOM: Which, as we’ve found out, makes our customers extremely grouchy. So we never change a timing belt without also changing the water pump and the front engine seal. RAY: But in order to get to the front engine seal, both the timing belt sprocket and the crankshaft pulley have to be removed. And that’s not always easy, especially on VWs. TOM: So if they had to use force to pull off the sprocket, they could have put a small crack in it. Or if they used heat to loosen the bolts that run through the pulley and the sprocket, and accidentally overheated them, they could have weakened the sprocket’s metal and caused it to fail a few weeks later. R A Y : So look at your receipt, Kaylyn. If it’s illegible or indecipherable, ask some other mechanic to help you read it (if you want to find an honest mechanic, try the customer-generated listings at www.mechanicsfiles.com). T O M : If your shop
charged you to replace the front engine seal, then I think you have a right to be suspicious. And since what you need now is major surgery, I think you need a second opinion. R A Y : I’d search the Mechanics Files for a trustworthy mechanic in your area, and have the car towed there. Tell him what the other shop told you, and ask him to look at the car and see if their story checks out. T O M : The second guy may tell you there’s no way to know exactly what happened. Or he may confirm our theory. Or he may have a theory of his own that either exonerates or convicts these other guys. Ask him to write up his professional opinion for you. You’ll have to pay him for his time, but I think it’s worth it, in this case. RA Y : Armed with that information — and expert witness testimony, should you need it — you can go back to the original guys, if warranted, and suggest, a little more persuasively, that they do the right thing for you and fix the car. TOM: All reputable shops carry Garage Keeper’s Liability insurance (what we call “Bonehead Insurance”) to cover serious mistakes they make on customers’ cars. So they probably have the means to repair this if they need to. RAY: And if they continue to tell you to go sit in your hat, you’ll have to decide whether it’s worth taking them to small-claims court over this. But at least you’ll be better prepared to win. I hope it doesn’t come to that. Good luck, Kaylyn.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 26, 2014 This is a year to listen carefully, not to preach. Don’t take on too much, and avoid overindulgence in any aspect of your life. Simplicity will be the key to progress. Go after only what’s actually important to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be careful not to allow others to spend your money. Use your intellect to dazzle anyone of interest. A romantic opportunity will develop. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Now is not the time to have a personal confrontation. If you have flaked on your responsibilities, you will meet with opposition. Focus on your own problems — not someone else’s. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Travel will result in a better understanding of yourself and others. Your ability to see the optics of a situation will give you leverage when discussing your plans. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — This is a perfect day to open your home to friends and family. You may be asked to help a family member. Talking to all parties involved in this person’s issues will lead to a solution. Dealing with a medical facility could be required. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You can make or break a relationship based on how you handle yourself today. Think about the larger picture, and be honest and direct at all times. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Overly indulgent choices will be a problem for you today. Discipline is required to put a stop to the formation of unhealthy habits. Adjust your diet and exercise regimens to improve your future. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Now is not the time to allow yourself to lie idle. Accept an invitation to get out and do something unusual, and you will discover some new possibilities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t make changes that make
you feel uneasy. Confusion will lead to making regrettable choices today. Get your personal space organized to better meet your needs. Not everything you hear is likely to be accurate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You have a special ability to strike a balance, and today that trait will help you mediate for someone who is not clear-headed. Your selfless contribution will be rewarded in an unexpected fashion. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Involvement in a risky venture will not be to your benefit. Consider how to adjust your plans in order to meet your goals. Don’t allow others to mislead you in any way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) —You are likely to overreact if you don’t make plans to keep yourself on the move. Pushiness will lead to problems with your partner or other family members. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you maintain openness in your approach, you will get a much better response. Now is not the time to keep secrets. Interactions with authority figures will cause stress. MONDAY, JAN,27, 2014 You’ll be able to draw others into your world, and this will add to your popularity. You will feel audacious and ready to vocalize your thoughts; however, some of those around you may take advantage of your honesty and hospitality. Don’t spread yourself too thin, or you may miss the mark with your personal goals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Discuss all the possibilities with someone trustworthy before you sign any binding contracts or agreements. You must consider the motives of others carefully. Read between the lines. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Plan to deal with bureaucracy today. Settle issues efficiently and be cognizant of the need to maintain your reputation. Spending time with children will prove to be enjoyable. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You need to reboot by going on an adventure. Traveling to an inspiring destination may give
HWY 101 - 2001 N. BAYSHORE DR. • 1-877-251-3017 • WWW.COOSBAYTOYOTA.COM
you mental clarity. Attend to your budget, and you will find a way to make your plans work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You can make worthwhile financial advancements, but be sure not to use your personal funds. A spontaneous trip is likely to happen. Try to include your partner so that you may mix business with pleasure. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Your mate may be inclined to hassle you today. Extreme sensitivity will lead to a wounded ego. Don’t allow things to spin out of control. Finish housework and then take time to enjoy each other. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Combine work with pleasure. Socialize with colleagues and clients. Changes in a relationship will be welcome. Take a leap when it comes to commitment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Take time for self-improvement. Make the physical and mental adjustments necessary to raise your self-esteem. If you feel confident, success will follow. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t overreact with loved ones. Family members may be needy and take advantage. This will leave you feeling depressed and used. Don’t offer help or ask for any. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You can forge meaningful friendships today. Attend social functions, and romantic opportunities will arise. Travel and social gatherings will increase your popularity. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You will be duped if you invest in joint financial ventures. Be discerning as to the people you do business with. Difficulties with female colleagues are evident. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Avoiding emotional conflict will not improve matters. Tell the truth and learn just where you stand. Don’t take financial risks that may lead to losses. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You may have a secret nemesis. Be careful what you reveal to others. Be precise in your communication, or you will be misunderstood. Issues with superiors or authority figures are likely.
