Propane prices continue climb on South Coast BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

Propane users on the South Coast are seeing price jumps, despite enjoying a much milder winter than the rest of the nation. Cold snaps and snowstorms hitting the Midwest and Northeast have pushed propane demand through the roof as chilly Americans rush to warm their homes. Residential propane prices doubled in one week to nearly $4.01 per gallon, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That’s also $1.72 per gallon higher than this time last year. While the 10-cent-per-gallon increase during the week ending Jan. 20 was “the largest single week increase since the start of the heating season in October,” the jump during the week ending Monday was “the largest single weekly increase since the survey began in 1990,” according to the EIA. Wholesale propane prices as of Monday — nearly $3.55 per gallon — also doubled prices from the week prior. AmeriGas and Chevron station representatives in North Bend and Port Orford said they were not authorized to speak on behalf of their company. Simon Bowman, AmeriGas and UGI Corporation’s manager of investor relations and treasury, did say AmeriGas is beginning to ration deliveries to customers “in a select few service territories.” “Unfortunately, I cannot be specific about (the North Bend and Coos Bay) service territory as the situation changes daily,” he said. “Nevertheless, we are working hard to alleviate

Ken Hollembaek with Ram Jack finishes work on the the Chandler Building in Coos Bay on Tuesday. After Ram Jack raised the building’s sagging northwest corner last October, Hollembaek says work on the building’s exterior should be done by the end of the week.

Farm bill passes House after years of disagreement

COOS BAY — The fence surrounding the historic Chandler Building is down, as workers put the finishing touches on some sidewalk and doorway work. Ram Jack of Oregon, the company charged with lifting the sagging structure last fall, is intent on leaving the structure without any visible sign that they were ever there. “When I first got here, and saw what it looked like out here, my whole goal was to get rid of that cyclone fence,” said job supervisor Ken Hollembaek. “And once I took that (fence) down, that was kind of the highlight of this whole job. People are walking through without having to try to shuffle around. I mean the foot traffic has kind of doubled now.” He added that the apartments upstairs are back open for business, and that the building’s owner, James Tarantino, is even offering a special rate for veterans. A business is expected to eventually occupy the northwest corner, first floor, when indoor renovations to that section are complete.


WASHINGTON — After years of setbacks, a nearly $100 billion-a-year compromise farm bill cleared the House on Wednesday despite strong opposition from conservatives who sought a bigger cut in food stamps. The five-year bill, which preserves generous crop subsidies, heads to the Senate, where approval seems certain. The White House said President Barack Obama would sign it. Inside The measure, which the House Possible affects for approved 251-166, had backing from the Oregon.

Former teacher found guilty


COQUILLE — A former Bandon middle school teacher and coach was found guilty Wednesday afternoon of sex abuse involving a relationship with a 16year-old female student. Charles Eugene McLauchlin, 55, showed little emotion as he sat silently with his attorney Nick Nylander in a Coos County Circuit courtroom where Judge Martin Stone found him guilty of 25 counts of second-degree sexual abuse

I can legally ask for,” he said. “I hope and expect the judge to impose a lengthy prison sentence. In my opinion, he deserves all the time he gets.” The state argued that McLauchlin groomed the victim starting when she was in sixth grade, gaining her trust so she would allow him to take advantage of her when she turned 16. The charges against McLauchlin were upgraded from third-degree sexual abuse, a misdemeanor, to seconddegree sexual abuse, a Class C felony, because the victim was under 18, and because McLauchlin was her coach and older than 21. Monson said there are 27 charges because every touch by a perpetrator on an intimate part of the victim’s



and two counts of online sexual corruption of a minor. Stone dismissed eight counts of online sexual corruption because they allegedly occurred after the victim turned 16. Each count could yield a maximum sentence of five years in prison. However, Coos County Assistant District Attorney Mark Monson said Wednesday after the trial that the judge takes into account whether the defendant has a prior criminal record and other mitigating factors such as psychological evaluations. Nylander said he planned to submit such an evaluation to the court. Monson said he would seek the maximum sentence for each count. “I’m going to ask for as much time as

Robeson and will also include classic jazz standards and songs from the “Great American Songbook.” The concert will be at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Florence Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, U.S. Highway 101 and Heceta Beach Road in Florence.

Museum patron, can you spare a dime? Our view It wouldn’t cost that much to establish steady funding for our museums.

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

An article in an issue of The Economist last month claims that museums are booming – worldwide. “Museums are enjoying a new golden age,” the piece says. “There are at least 55,000 museums across the world, more than double the number 20 years ago. And new ones are being built every day, ...” Interesting that we’re seeing some of that renaissance right here in Coos Bay with the Coos Historical and Maritime Center going up. But that same article goes on to discuss the financial challenges facing those facil-

ities, new and old. Museums are expensive operations, and it’s a fact that for the majority of them, admission fees don’t come close to covering expenses. Many of the larger museums in metropolitan areas were established by philanthropists who usually bestowed hefty endowments and maybe contributed private art collections to establish the museum. Others, like our own Coos Art Museum, started on a shoestring and remain on the bleeding edge of survival year after year. We bring this up because there are discussions — very

preliminarily right now — about whether the Coos museum will need to assume maintenance costs currently covered by the City of Coos Bay. That’s by no means been decided, but it got us to thinking about where museums get their funds and where they spend them. The last audited figures show Coos posted revenues of about $185,000 in 2012. That money came from about a dozen sources, including the City of Coos Bay ($15,000), memberships (nearly $30,000) and exhibitions ($23,500). But, as museum executive director Steven Broocks points out,

the only constant in that mix is the $15,000 from the city in annual management fees. Everything else, from contributions to in-kind donations to grants, can vary widely from year to year. What if all the museums in the county create a service district? Taking the current assessed property valuation of the county at $4.7 billion, if the museum district asked for a 10-cent levy, that would raise $470,000. We pay nearly that for 4-H now. Wouldn’t you be willing to pony up another dime per thousand dollars on your home to preserve a little culture in your community?

U.S. mayors forced to innovate Mayors from across the nation met in Washington, D.C., for three days earlier this month to discuss a host of issues and possible solutions against a backdrop of congressional inaction. This came as President Obama stated his plans to use “a pen and a phone” to “make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need.” And further, voters are recognizing that the problem in Congress starts at the state level — and many hope their legislatures will do something about it. Scott Smith, president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) and mayor of Mesa, Ariz., put it bluntly: “Rather than look to Washington for assistance, mayors have been forced to turn to local partnerships to continue to accomplish more with less. “We’ve been practicing innovation, creativity and the art of trying new things for years to keep our cities strong and thriving because the partnership between local and federal government is not as strong now as it once was,” Smith said. “Several things that should be happening in Congress are not happening,” he stated. “Instead of Congress pulling together to help working Americans, there is an allout assault on programs that would help them.” DONNA Smith is a Republican BRAZILE who plans to resign his Columnist mayoral post in April to seek his party’s nomination for the Arizona governorship. He sounds nothing like the federal office-holders and candidates who seem to specialize in partisan rhetoric. Smith told USA Today he would miss his fellow mayors, describing them as a “pragmatic bunch who care more about finding solutions than about focusing on ideological differences.” The USCM released a study that underscored the importance of our cities to our economy. Conducted by IHS Global Insight, a Massachusetts company that researches and analyzes economic trends, the study found that: ■ The national economy’s gross domestic product (GDP) will leap from last year’s 1.9 percent to 2.7 percent in 2014 — and continue climbing into 2015 with a GDP increase of 3.2 percent. ■At the city level,356 of the 363 U.S.metropolitan areas are expected to experience “real economic growth” (inflation adjusted) in 2014. ■ Almost one-fifth of U.S. metro areas are projected to experience real economic growth in 2014 of 3 percent; 62 percent (226 metro areas) will have a 2 percent growth rate. ■ 297 metro areas (82 percent) will see jobs growth in 2014, and 40 percent will see unemployment skink to 6 percent. ■ On the national level, the U.S. unemployment rate is expected to fall to 6.5 percent in 2014, and break the 6 percent barrier in 2015, dropping to 5.9 percent. “Mayors are making the most of what they have and what their residents can afford,” Smith emphasized. “It’s a tough job, and we are doing it with little help from Washington, D.C.” The USCM also commissioned an energy study and found, despite tight budgets, a remarkable 300 cities that plan to reduce their consumption of energy. Most expect to make energy-efficient lighting (LEDs) a priority over the next two years, as well as retrofitting public buildings with energysaving equipment. More than seven in 10 mayors believe their local utility companies are “their most important partners” in implementing plans to conserve energy, lower taxpayer costs, and bring city lighting into the 21st century. Other good news to come from the U.S. Mayor’s Conference is that only .06 percent of local governments filed for bankruptcy in the last five years. We should praise our mayors for their innovative approaches, their willingness to put solutions and citizens over ideology and party, and their commitment to programs that help people. Congress could learn a lot from them.

The paradox of secrecy Something happened to Barack Obama on the way to the White House. He became the president. Now that may seem like a tautology, or a wise guy’s aside. But the remark is meant seriously. Presidents look at the world differently than senators do. They look at the world differently from any other soul on Earth. All of which explains the president’s resolute belief in secrecy and the clandestine arts, despite his views as a senator, despite the disbelief and disapproval of many of his most ardent supporters. A lot of the things that once seemed clear to him, especially in the national-security sphere, aren’t quite so obvious on the side of the Oval Office desk where the drawers are. All of this underlines two very important characteristics of the modern presidency. The first is the struggle, dating to Woodrow Wilson, over the virtue or menace of secrecy. The second is the inclination — and here Obama and Richard Nixon are the reigning champions, though they are not alone — to feel this way: If you knew what I knew, you would do what I am doing. First, the struggle of values. Woodrow Wilson won the world’s hearts, and the revulsion of the world’s diplomats, when, in the shorthand of 1918, he called for “open covenants openly arrived at.” This notion was imbedded in the very first of Wilson’s Fourteen Points, the utopian view of the post-World War I world that was seized upon

equally by idea l i s t s worldwide — and by the defeated (Germany), the disillusioned (the Soviet rebels of the Russian DAVID Revo l u t i o n ) and the dis- SHRIBMAN p o s s e s s e d Columnist (among them Ho Chi Minh, then an unknown nationalist seeking freedom from France for colonial Indochina). It’s important to remember that Wilson’s Fourteen Points were in part a capitalist counterpoint to the Russian Revolution, which had occurred only two months earlier and was accompanied by the publication of secret treaties and this statement by Leon Trotsky: “Secret diplomacy is a necessary tool for a propertied minority which is compelled to deceive the majority in order to subject it to its interests. Imperialism, with its dark plans of conquest and its robber alliances and deals, developed the system of secret diplomacy to the highest level.” Among the documents the revolutionary Soviets released were the secret protocols of the 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement, which proposed to divide much of the Middle East into British and French spheres of influence, with Tsarist Russia to get much of present-day Turkey. This did not ennoble the cause of the Triple Entente, but it surprised no one

with even a passing familiarity with the big-power realpolitik that produced it. Thus secrecy has been a matter of white-hot controversy throughout modern times and has been employed for causes generally embraced today (the Sons of Liberty, cited by Obama in his surveillance speech this month) and for some that are still matters of contention (the Manhattan Project, for example, or American overtures to 1980s “moderates” in Iran). Into this polarizing vortex we now mix the “president knows best” impulse, favored by some presidents (George W. Bush) but not employed by others (Franklin Roosevelt, who also faced tremendous national-security threats). Obama clearly is troubled by this issue, torn by what he thinks is right and by what he thinks about when he confronts the threats the country faces by groups hostile to American interests and the American way of life. In some ways, his life is a struggle to reconcile the one with the other. In his secrecy speech, he deplored East Germany’s “vast, unchecked surveillance” and referred to U.S. government spying on civil-rights leaders and anti-war protesters as “abuse of surveillance.” He even cribbed a line from John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address, saying that “in the long, twilight struggle against communism, we had been reminded that the very liberties that we sought to preserve could

not be sacrificed at the altar of national security.” That is the crux of the tension, the peril that in the zeal to protect our rights we undermine them. During the Cold War, this tension flared, with the danger that in opposing Moscow in foreign affairs,the nation faced the hazard of behaving like Soviet Russia in domestic affairs. The problem is that, in a world where high-tech surveillance is so sophisticated that the instruments of everyday life, such as BlackBerrys and iPhones, are not even permitted in the White House Situation Room, presidents understandably want their intelligence services to know as much as possible.“We were shaken,” the president said of the 2001 terrorist strikes, “by the signs we had missed leading up to the attacks — how the hijackers had made phone calls to known extremists and traveled to suspicious places.” The beginning of understanding the president’s view is to consider how he begins his day: with a security briefing that many days is chilling. Obama’s problem is that his conviction that he has information others don’t — a fact that is incontestable — makes for a president who seems remote and unaccountable. That may be an inevitable characteristic of the modern presidency, but so, too, is distrust and skepticism of the modern presidency.

State Court finds officer’s search unconstitutional

Daughter acts like a winner, but still feels like a loser DEAR ABBY: I’m a 27-yearold woman who still lives at home. I do it so I can help my mom with my five nieces and nephews.Their mother passed away suddenly in 2009 at the age of 30. My mom and stepdad kept them rather than scatter them to fathers who don’t appear very interested in them. Since my sister’s death I have earned two degrees, entered the health care field and have lost almost 140 pounds. DEAR Despite what I have accomplished, I feel I have nothing to show for myself. When I point my JEANNE accomPHILLIPS plishments out to myself, they don’t seem like a heck of a lot. What can I do so I can stop feeling like a loser? — LOST IN THE NORTHEAST DEAR LOST: A loser? From where I sit, you appear to be not only a caring daughter, but also an intellectually accomplished young woman who is being very hard on herself. If you feel you haven’t accomplished a lot, I have to question the yardstick you’re using. It’s time you discussed your feelings with a licensed mental health professional who can help you understand what is causing your low self-esteem. If you do, it may help you be kinder to yourself, because what’s currently going on in your head is unfair to you and destructive. DEAR ABBY: I work in a buffet restaurant. I wish you would alert your readers to how waste increases the costs at restaurants like this one. And then people complain because the cost of the food goes up! I have seen customers stick their fingers or used utensils into pans of food to taste it before serving themselves. And instead of the tongs we provide, they use their hands to help themselves to chicken, bread, etc. The fact is that once anyone touches the food with his or her hands or eating utensil,the restaurant is required by the health code to dispose of the entire pan of food. This causes tremendous waste. Customers also overfill their plates only to throw half the food away. It makes me sad because so many people in this world are hungry. I have seen children run around, making a mess of the dessert bar, and especially the ice cream and drink stations. Their parents seem to think it’s “cute.” I wish you would remind your readers to use common sense when dining out and to PLEASE control their children. The parents should serve food to their little ones who don’t know better. — FRUSTRATED BUFFET WORKER, PUEBLO, COLO. DEAR FRUSTRATED: Children can’t practice behavior they haven’t been taught, and parents who don’t take the time to explain proper behavior to their little ones are shirking their responsibility. As to adults who have so little understanding of hygiene — or consideration for others — that they put their hands or used utensils into food that is meant for others, well — perhaps after being reminded that it raises the prices they have to pay, they’ll think twice about it. But don’t bet on it. DEAR ABBY: I was wondering what is the appropriate level of give and take in a friendship? I notice that in some relationships I am always giving and never receiving, where in others I am always receiving. How do you know when a balance is reached? — JAKE IN ALBANY, GA. DEAR JAKE: There is give and take in all healthy relationships. A “ balance is reached” when you can give without feeling used, and take without feeling guilty that you’re being given too much.

A pair of buckaroos trail a bunch of young bulls through the Catlow Valley on the Roaring Springs Ranch near Frenchglen. The Farm Bill moving through Congress would restore disaster assistance to ranches in southeastern Oregon that lost cattle and grazing to massive wildfires.

Farm Bill helps ranchers, restores county payments GRANTS PASS (AP) — The Farm Bill moving through Congress includes disaster assistance for ranchers who lost cattle and grazing to drought and wildfire, and millions of dollars in federal payments for counties with federal lands. Organic farmers would get improved crop insurance and wheat farmers help in selling their crops overseas. The bill passed the House on Wednesday and goes to the Senate. About 225 cattle died in Oregon in the 2012 wildfires, and hundreds of thousands of acres of rangeland burned. No disaster assistance was available at the time because the last Farm Bill had expired and Congress could not agree on a new one. The current bill

would restore programs that offer grants to partially cover the value of cattle and grazing lost to disaster. “That is good news,” Jeanette Yturriondobeita said. She and her husband, Rich, run the 12-Mile Ranch southwest of Jordan Valley in Malheur County.“It will help a lot of people.” They lost a third of their 300 cattle, and had to buy hay and lease pasture more than 100 miles away to feed the survivors. With drought building in Oregon, they don’t expect to put up much hay for next year and have not replenished their herd. They expect more grazing restrictions from federal protections for the sage grouse. In Klamath County last summer, drought and newly awarded water rights led to

irrigation shutoffs to cattle ranchers in the upper basin, forcing them to find new pasture or sell off their herds. Ranchers estimated they lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The bill extends for one year Payments in Lieu of Taxes, or PILT, which makes up for property taxes the government doesn’t pay. Oregon received $15.5 million last year. Nationwide, the program has distributed $6.3 billion since 1977. The upcoming payments will be a little larger than last year’s, about $410 million nationwide, compared to $400 million last year,according to a spokesman for U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore. “These payments are a critical lifeline for rural resource-dependent counties

that can barely afford to pay for critical government services like public safety, schools and roads,” U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., said in a statement. “This one-year reauthorization means Congress will once again have to break through partisan gridlock to continue PILT payments past FY2015.” Meanwhile, another federal payments program for timber counties known as Secure Rural Schools is expiring after a one-year extension. An amendment from Sen. Jeff Merkley,D-Ore.,and others would improve the crop insurance program for organic farmers. It gives $5 million to the U.S. Department of Agriculture to update the prices paid on crop loss claims.

PORTLAND (AP) — For drivers in a traffic stop, the question from police is inevitable: “Is there anything in the vehicle that we should be concerned about?” That was what a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy asked Utah driver William R. DeLong on May 22, 2009, after he stopped DeLong for not wearing a seatbelt. DeLong consented to the search, which uncovered a fanny pack full of methamphetamine and paraphernalia. But that question also constituted an interrogation under Oregon law, and sheriff’s deputy Vincent Robeson hadn’t yet read DeLong his rights. The Oregon Court of Appeals on Wednesday reversed a judge’s decision to allow the fanny pack into evidence and sent the case back to Douglas County Circuit Court. Robeson and two other officers stopped DeLong in Douglas County. He declined to provide a driver’s license, so Robeson detained him while another officer checked for outstanding warrants. Finding none, they asked DeLong about the contents of the car. Robeson didn’t ask for consent to search the vehicle. Other deputies conducted the search, found the fanny pack and conducted field tests to determine the presence of methamphetamine. Inspecting the fanny pack constituted a warrantless search, the court ruled. Even though DeLong volunteered an offer to search his car and then later admitted that the fanny pack and paraphernalia belonged to him, the entire episode happened without DeLong knowing his rights.

‘Whoville’ occupants get 30-day reprieve STATE EUGENE (AP) — The Eugene City Council has given a month-long reprieve to the residents of an unauthorized homeless camp known as “Whoville.” The Register-Guard reports Wednesday’s vote was 6-2 in favor of letting the 40-person camp remain until the city manager comes up with a place for the people to go.

Old schoolhouse sold for $1 REDMOND (AP) — The Redmond council has agreed

to sell one of the city’s oldest houses for $1. The Bend Bulletin reports that developer Roger Lee plans to move the house six blocks and refurbish it into a single-family residence. The building may have been Redmond’s first schoolhouse. It has been city owned since 2007, when Redmond bought a large section of formerly residential property in the center of the Dry Canyon park system. While the other homes were demolished, the city spared the historic house, hoping it could be relocated.

WESTFIRE (AP) — The Lane County sheriff’s office says a man has been found dead along the Willamette River just outside the Oregon town of Westfir. KVAL-TV reports that a hiker found the body Wednesday.

Big truck kills pedestrian crossing I-5 ROSEBURG (AP) — Oregon State Police say the driver of a tractor-trailer rig was unable to avoid hitting a pedestrian

who walked out into a southbound lane of Interstate 5 south of Roseburg. The 55year-old pedestrian died at the scene. Police identified the man who was fatally injured Wednesday as Ronald Page of Roseburg. Lt. Douglas Ladd says the 29-year-old truck driver from Elk Grove, Calif., is cooperating with the investigation. Witnesses say Page appeared to make several attempts to cross the freeway’s southbound lanes. A number of vehicles swerved to avoid him.

Nation GOP leaders to focus on immigration

Missouri executes BONNE TERRE, Mo. (AP) — In 1991, Herbert Smulls called jeweler Stephen Honickman and set up an appointment to meet at his store in suburban St. Louis. He said he wanted to buy a diamond for his fiancee. It was a set up. Smulls wanted to rob the store and took along a 15-year-old friend to help commit what became a far worse crime: Honickman was shot to death. Honickman’s wife, Florence, was also shot, but survived by faking death in a pool of her own blood until the assailants left. Late Wednesday night, Smulls was put to death with a lethal dose of pentobarbital, Missouri’s third execution since November and the third since switching to the new drug that’s made by a compounding pharmacy the state refuses to name. Smulls, 56, did not have any final words. The process was brief, Smulls mouthed a few words to his two witnesses, who were not identified, then breathed heavily twice and shut his eyes for good. He was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. Florence Honickman spoke to the media after the execution, flanked by her adult son and daughter. She questioned why it took 22 years of appeals before Smulls was put to death. “Make no mistake, the long, winding and painful road leading up to this day has been a travesty of justice,” she said. His attorneys spent the days leading up to the execution filing appeals that questioned the secretive nature of how Missouri obtains the lethal drug, saying that if the drug was inadequate, the inmate could suffer during the execution process. The U.S. Supreme Court granted a temporary stay late Tuesday.

After a winter snow storm slammed into the South, residents on four-wheelers attempt to help motorists who are stuck along I-20 amid abandoned vehicles near Birmingham, Ala., on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014. Many parts of the Deep South were paralyzed by the snow when it turned into ice that halted traffic and stranded motorists across the region.

Atlanta roads a mess ATLANTA (AP) — The snow and sleet had stopped falling and traffic was moving again around Atlanta following a crippling storm — but officials warned that ice-covered roads remained a threat for drivers Thursday morning. State officials were concerned with sub-freezing overnight lows potentially leading to layers of black ice coating roads that might appear to be safe. Temperatures dipped into the teens overnight in the Atlanta area. Although it was supposed to be in the high 30s Thursday, it was forecast to dip below freezing again before rising into the 50s on Friday. Heeding the warnings, school districts and state and local governments stretching from northwest to coastal Georgia announced that offices and classrooms would remain closed Thursday. A storm that dropped just inches of snow Tuesday wreaked havoc across much of the South, closing highways, grounding flights and contributing to at least a dozen deaths from traffic accidents and a mobile home fire. Yet it was Atlanta, home to major corporations and the world’s busiest airport, that was Exhibit A for how a southern city could be sent reeling by winter weather that, in the North, might be no more than an inconvenience. The Georgia State Patrol responded to more than 1,460 crashes between Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening, including two fatal crashes, and reported more than 175 injuries. At Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, more than 400 flights in and out were canceled by 6 a.m. Thursday, according to data from the flight tracking service FlightAware. Many of those flights were canceled before the day began. Thousands of schoolchildren either slept on the buses that tried and failed to get them home, or on cots in school gymnasiums. All were back home by Wednesday evening, officials said. State transportation crews spent much of Wednesday rescuing stranded drivers and moving disabled and abandoned vehicles that littered the interstates, medians and shoulders. Gov. Nathan Deal said emergency workers, police, and the National Guard would help drivers Thursday to recover their cars and would provide them with fuel if necessary. Crews planned to use four-wheel-drive vehicles to take motorists to vehicles they abandoned to reclaim them Thursday. State officials also said they were creating a database to help motorists locate vehicles that were towed to impound lots. Gov. Deal and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed found themselves on the defensive Wednesday, acknowledging that storm preparations could have been better. But Deal also blamed federal forecasters, saying he was led to believe it wouldn’t be so bad.

Decapitation stymies Wyo. CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The discovery of an unidentified murder victim’s headless body nearly three weeks ago on a remote, deadend dirt road in Wyoming has stymied investigators and led some residents to speculate that big-league drug violence has reached a rural county just east of Yellowstone National Park. However, authorities insist they’re still looking for a motive for the grisly crime, along with the victim’s identity. Duck hunters found the man’s body Jan. 9 near the town of Powell. A pathologist determined the man — no more than 35 years old, about 5-foot-8, and 180 to 200 pounds — was killed by multiple gunshot wounds before he was decapitated. One of his arms also was cut off.

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican leaders plan to outline broad immigration principles, including legalization for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally, to the GOP rank and file as they look to revive longstalled efforts to overhaul the nation’s immigration system. Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, and other House GOP leaders will measure the willingness of party members to tackle immigration in a midterm election year when they unveil the principles Thursday at the GOP caucus’ annual retreat in Cambridge, Md. “We’re going to outline our standards, principles of immigration reform and have a conversation with our members, and once that conversation’s over we’ll have a better feel for what members have in mind,” Boehner told reporters this week. Boehner faces strong opposition from several conservatives who fear that legislation will lead to citizenship for people who broke U.S. immigration laws. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, delivered a 30page package to all 232 House Republicans on Wednesday that offered a point-bypoint rebuttal to the expected principles.

Syria deliberately razed neighborhoods BEIRUT (AP) — The Syrian government used controlled explosives and bulldozers to raze thousands of residential buildings, in some cases entire neighborhoods, in a campaign that appeared designed to punish civilians sympathetic to the opposition or to cause disproportionate harm to them, an international human rights group said Thursday. The demolitions took place between July 2012 and July 2013 in seven pro-opposition districts in and around the capital, Damascus, and the central city of Hama, according to a 38-page report by Human Rights Watch. The New York-based group said the deliberate destruction violated international law, and called for an immediate end to the practice. “Wiping entire neighborhoods off the map is not a legitimate tactic of war,” said Ole Solvang, emergencies researcher for HRW. “These unlawful demolitions are the latest additions to a long list of crimes committed by the Syrian government.” Human Rights Watch said many of the demolished buildings were apartment blocks, and that thousands of families have lost their homes because of the destruction. It said government officials and media have described the demolitions as

But Human Rights Watch said its investigation determined that military forces supervised the demolitions, which in each instance targeted areas that had recently been hit by fighting and were widely understood to be proopposition.

Thai government begs for access to offices BANGKOK (AP) — The protest leader, a monk in flowing orange robes, sat sternly at the head of a long hardwood table, his newfound authority in this patch of Bangkok plain for all to see. Before him, three highlevel Thai officials were begging permission to get back to work — in offices across the street his antigovernment demonstrators had shut them out of two weeks earlier. Tens of thousands of passport applications were piling up, they said. Bankruptcy declarations needed tending to. One official was desperate to access environmental databases. Speaking on behalf of the group, Bangkok’s deputy police chief, Maj. Gen. Adul Narongsak, pressed his palms together in a traditional sign of respect, and smiled meekly. “We are begging for your mercy,” he said. The monk, Luang Pu Buddha Issara, pursed his lips and gave a blunt reply: “Lord Buddha once taught that effects only come from causes. And right now, the cause (of the problem) is this government.” It was an extraordinarily humbling moment for Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s embattled administration, which took power following a landslide election two and a half years ago. That vote was seen as a major rebuke to the elite establishment that applauded the overthrow of her brother Thaksin Shinawatra in a 2006 army coup.

Justin Bieber turns himself in — second arrest in a week TORONTO (AP) — Justin Bieber was charged with assault for allegedly hitting a Toronto limousine driver several times in the back of the head last month, just hours after his attorney entered a separate not guilty plea in Florida to drunkendriving and other charges. The baby-faced 19-yearold turned himself in to a Toronto police station Wednesday evening, arriving amid a crush of media and screaming fans.

Nation and World Amanda Knox deliberations taking place

The Associated Press

Oumou Balde, 4, left, plays with her teacher Jacqualine Sanchez, right, and some pretend food in a prekindergarten class. A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday, finds that much of a child’s “weight fate” is set by age 5, and that nearly half of kids who became obese by the eighth grade were already overweight when they started kindergarten.

Obesity risks set early BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE The Associated Press

Those efforts to fight obesity in schools? Think younger. A new study finds that much of a child’s “weight fate” is set by age 5, and that nearly half of kids who became obese by the eighth grade were already overweight when they started kindergarten. The prevalence of weight problems has long been known — about a third of U.S. kids are overweight or obese. But surprisingly little is known about which kids will develop obesity, and at what age. Researchers think there may be a window of opportunity to prevent it, and “we keep pushing our critical window earlier and earlier on,” said Solveig Cunningham, a scientist at Emory University. “A lot of the risk of obesity seems to be set, to some extent, really early in life.” She led the new study, which was published in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine and paid for by the federal government. It tracked a nationwide sample of more than 7,700 children through grade school. When they started kindergarten, 12 percent were obese and 15 percent were overweight. By eighth grade, 21 percent were obese and 17 percent were overweight. Besides how common obesity was at various ages, researchers focused on the 6,807 children who were not obese when the study started, at kindergarten entry. Here are some things they found:

WHO BECAME OBESE: Between ages 5 and 14, nearly 12 percent of children developed obesity — 10 percent of girls and nearly 14 percent of boys. Nearly half of kids who started kindergarten overweight became obese teens. Overweight 5-year-olds were four times as likely as normal-weight children to become obese (32 percent versus 8 percent). G R A D E L E V E L S : Most of the shift occurred in the younger grades. During the kindergarten year, about 5 percent of kids who had not been obese at the start became that way by the end. The greatest increase in the prevalence of obesity was between first and third grades; it changed little from ages 11 to 14. RACE: From kindergarten through eighth grade, the prevalence of obesity increased by 65 percent among whites, 50 percent among Hispanics, almost 120 percent among blacks and more than 40 percent among others — Asians, Pacific Islanders and Native Americans and mixed-race children. By eighth grade, 17 percent of black children had become obese, compared to 14 percent of Hispanics and 10 percent of whites and children of other races. INCOME: Obesity was least common among children from the wealthiest families and most prevalent among kids in the nextto-lowest income category. The highest rate of children developing obesity during the study years was among middle-income families.

Slithering mess found in home

FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — An appeals court in Florence began deliberations Thursday in the third murder trial of U.S. student Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend as the star defendant waited on another continent with, in her words, “my heart in my throat.” Knox’s defense team gave their last round of rebuttals, ending four months of arguments in Knox’s and Italian Raffaele Sollecito’s third trial for the 2007 murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, in the Italian university town of Perugia. Knox’s lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova told the court he was “serene” about the verdict because he believes the only conclusion from the files is “the innocence of Amanda Knox.” “It is not possible to convict a person because it is probable that she is guilty,” Dalla Vedova said. “The penal code does not foresee probability. It foresees certainty.” Dalla Vedova evoked Dante, noting that the Florentine writer reserved the lower circle of hell for those who betrayed trust, as

Raffaele Sollecito, left, and his father Francesco attended the final hearing before the third court verdict for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, in Florence, Italy. The first two trials produced flipflop verdicts of guilty then innocent for Kercher former roommate, American student Amanda Knox, who is not attending the hearing, and her former Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, and the case has produced harshly clashing versions of events. he asserted that police had done in Knox’s case when they held her overnight for questioning without representation and without advising her that she was a suspect. Presiding Judge Alessandro Nencini said the court would deliberate Thursday for at least seven hours. Knox, 26, awaited the verdict half a world away in Seattle, where she returned after spending four years in jail before being acquitted in 2011. In an email to this

court, Knox wrote that she feared a wrongful conviction. She told Italian state TV in an interview earlier this month that she would wait for the verdict at her mother’s house, “with my heart in my throat.” Knox’s absence does not formally hurt her case since she was freed by a court and defendants in Italy are not required to appear at their trials. However, Nencini reacted sternly to her emailed statement, noting that defendants have a right to be heard if they appear.

Ukranian president sick KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine’s embattled president is taking sick leave, his office said Thursday, a surprise development that left unclear how efforts to resolve the country’s political crisis would move forward. Protesters have been calling for his resignation for two months. The 63-year-old Viktor Yanukovych has an acute respiratory illness and a high fever, a statement on the presidential website said. There was no indication of how long he might be on leave or whether he would be able to do any work. He wasn’t known to have any previous health issues. Yanukovych is still in charge of the country, spokesman Andriy Lysenko told The Associated Press. Under Ukraine’s constitution, the president can’t transfer his powers to anyone, he added. The announcement that Yanukovych was taking sick leave prompted skeptical

reactions and even the suggestion that it was a ruse to take him out of power — as in the attempted coup against Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991. “I don’t remember official statements on Viktor Yanukovych’s colds. But I remember well, when on Aug. 19, 1991, the vice president of the USSR, Gennady Yanayev, announced the serious illness of Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev,” political commentator Vitaly Portnikov wrote on his Facebook page. Gorbachev’s purported illness was reported on Aug. 19, 1991, as hardline Communists opposed to his reforms attempted an unsuccessful coup against him and held him under house arrest. Although the coup failed, it accelerated the collapse of the Soviet Union, which officially was dissolved four months later. Yanukovych has faced two months of large protests that have often paralyzed

K iev, the capital. The protests started after he backed out of a long-awaited agreement to deepen ties with the European Union, but quickly came to encompass a wide array of discontent over corruption, heavy-handed police and dubious courts. Despite offering several concessions, authorities have so far failed to mollify the protesters. In a series of moves aiming at resolving the crisis, parliament voted Tuesday to repeal harsh anti-protest laws. Yanukovych must formally sign that repeal and it was unclear whether he could do so while on sick leave. He also has accepted the resignation of his prime minister. But protesters say the moves are insufficient — they want him out and new elections held. Yanukovych made a latenight visit to the parliament Wednesday before it passed a measure offering amnesty to some of those arrested.

FARM Food stamps get one percent cut Continued from Page A1 were hoping to bolster rural candidates in this year’s midterm elections. House Speaker John Boehner did not cast a vote on the bill, a commonplace practice for a speaker, but he had issued a statement Monday saying it was “worthy of the House’s support.” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., voted for the bill despite concerns from some in her caucus that the bill cut too much from the food stamp program. The bill ultimately would cut about $800 million a year from the $80 billion-a-year food stamp program, or around 1 percent. The House had sought a 5 percent cut. The legislation also would continue to heavily subsidize

veillance is unconstitutional,” Muhtorov said, citing constitutional provisions against unreasonable search and seizure. The ACLU called the filing the first of its kind. Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon declined to comment. The challenge had been expected after the Justice Department in October said it intended to use information gleaned from one of the NSA’s warrantless surveillance programs against Muhtorov. It was the first time the department had made such a disclosure. The U.S. Supreme Court has so far turned aside challenges to the law on the grounds that people who bring such lawsuits have no evidence they are being targeted. In another case involving the government’s surveillance methods, a federal

judge in a Chicago terrorism case ruled Wednesday that a defendant’s lawyers will be given access to an application prosecutors submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, established to monitor spying within in the United States. The Chicago judge called her pretrial ruling in the case of Adel Daoud a first. Daoud has denied seeking to detonate a bomb in Chicago in 2012. In the Denver case, Muhtorov was accused in 2012 of providing material support to an Uzbek terrorist organization active in Afghanistan. According to Wednesday’s motion, Muhtorov was targeted by the Uzbek government because of his work with human rights groups in his homeland. He fled and resettled in Aurora, Colo., in 2007, as a political refugee and became a legal permanent U.S. resident.

major crops for the nation’s farmers while eliminating some subsidies and shifting them toward more politically defensible insurance programs. House Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas, ROkla., called the compromise a “miracle” after trying to get the bill passed for almost three years. An early version of the legislation was defeated on the House floor last June after conservatives said the food stamp cuts were too modest and liberal Democrats said they were too deep. The House later passed a bill with a higher, $4 billion cut, arguing at the time that the program had spiraled out of control after costs doubled in the last five years. But cuts that high were ultimately not possible after the Senate balked and the White House threatened a veto. The Senate had sought a cut of $400 million annually.

Many House conservatives still voted against the bill — 63 Republicans opposed it, one more than in June. To pass the bill, Lucas and his Senate counterpart, Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, found ways to bring many potential naysayers on board. They spent more than two years crafting the bill to appeal to members from all regions of the country. They included a boost in money for crop insurance popular in the Midwest; higher rice and peanut subsidies for Southern farmers; and renewal of federal land payments for Western states. They also backed away from repealing a catfish program — a move that would have angered Mississippi lawmakers — and dropped House language that would have thwarted a California law requiring all eggs sold in the state to come from hens living in larger cages.

Striking out that provision was a priority for California lawmakers who did not want to see the state law changed. For those seeking reform of farm programs, the legislation would eliminate a $4.5 billion-a-year farm subsidy called direct payments, which are paid to farmers whether they farm or not. But the bill nonetheless would continue to heavily subsidize major crops — corn, soybeans, wheat, rice and cotton — while shifting many of those subsidies toward more politically defensible insurance programs. That means farmers would have to incur losses before they could get a payout. The almost $100 billiona-year bill would save around $1.65 billion annually overall, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The amount was less than the $2.3 billion annual savings the agriculture committees originally projected for the bill.

Bitter cold across the country has resulted in increased demand. “This becomes a simple law of economics: supply versus demand,” he said. Wholesale propane prices — “the price we pay to buy the fuel on behalf of our customers” — are more than 60 percent higher than during this period last year, he said. And transportation costs have also jumped since

increased demand has caused pipelines, rail and barge systems to become strained. “There is only so much capacity to move product ... and when demand is high, that capacity is constrained and costs increase,” he said. “We have to drive farther to get the product, and often wait in line with other trucks to do so.” At Al’s Chevron in Port Orford, a manager who

refused to be named said she was not allowed to quote propane prices over the phone but said prices are influenced by “propane shortages happening out East.” “I just do what my main office tells me,” she said.

Terror suspect challenges NSA program DENVER (AP) — A terror suspect is challenging the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program, saying in a court document filed Wednesday that spying by the federal government has gone too far. In the motion filed in federal court in Denver with help from the American Civil Liberties Union, Jamshid Muhtorov also requested that prosecutors disclose more about how surveillance law was used in his case.Muhtorov denies the terror charges he faces. Surveillance under current law “is exceptionally intrusive and it is conducted by executive officers who enjoy broad authority to decide whom to monitor, when and for how long,” Muhtorov argued in his motion. “The statue that authorized the sur-

GUILTY Sentencing will be on Feb. 10 Continued from Page A1 body is considered a count, and one encounter could add up to several such touches. The victim, who The World has chosen not to name in news reports, testified for about 21⁄2 hours. She appeared calm and collected as she recounted how the relationship with her teacher and cross country and track coach grew from friendship to romance over the course of a couple of years. Her parents were in the courtroom as she described the observations and comments others made. The school principal warned McLauchlin against such contact, but the accused perpetrator and the victim were still involved in sports. They saw each other during practices and events with other team members around. McLauchlin, who did not take the stand, was described as a “mama duck with his ducklings.” Sometimes, however, the victim and McLauchlin ran alone together. After one such instance, the victim’s mother became suspicious and reported him to the principal, leading to an investigation by Bandon police. School officials placed McLauchlin on administration leave from teaching and coaching. Though Bandon police were unable to build a case, he did not return to teach or coach. The victim began running with a new coach, she told the judge. But McLauchlin began attending the victim’s church. Her parents forbade her from speaking to him, but they would sometimes meet and hug in the hallway. The victim said her parents began softening toward McLauchlin after he was baptized in the church in December 2012, an event she said made her “extremely happy.” He secretly gave her an iPod and the two began communicating 1-4 hours almost nightly through instant messaging. The victim said they would “talk about everything,” including sex, of which she knew very little. He offered to instruct her,

and she accepted. The instruction was much like a teacher-student scenario and not romantic, she said. She was unhappy at home and wanted to run away, but McLauchlin advised her not to. They talked about a future together in which they would marry when she turned 18. When asked if the age difference bothered her, she replied, “At first it did, but we knew it was something that we couldn’t change, so I looked past it.” As the relationship grew, contact became more intimate, the victim said. She described five instances of sexual contact, four of which involved oral sex. One of the alleged accounts took place prior to her turning 16. There was no intercourse, she said, and she never felt pressured to perform sexual acts. Most of the contacts occurred in a place they named “the nest,” in a wooded area not far from her house. After returning from running camp in August 2013, the victim’s mother found her iPod and insisted to know what was going on. A confession ensued and, after a statement to police, Coos County sheriff’s Sgt. Toby Floyd found probable cause to arrest McLauchlin and to search his home in August 2013. Floyd testified that the search of McLauchlin’s house yielded 35 items, mostly computers and electronic devices. After analysis by an FBI electronic device task force, Floyd came up with 163 pages of text messages to and from the victim and 115 pages from an iPod. He also found a notebook with a sexually explicit story in it. Following the four-hour bench trial, McLauchlin was taken immediately into custody. He will be sentenced at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 2014 ■ Sports Editor John Gunther ■ 541-269-1222, ext. 241

Daffodils inspire long runs in winter Tuesday was an unofficial annual holiday for me. Driving home, I passed by one of the houses in our neighborhood that always has great landscaping and spotted my first daffodil of the new year. People who know me well know daffodils are my favorite flowers. We have a bunch of them — both big and small — in our yard that will soon brighten the landscape. And in the early months of the year, they also help out my running. One of my favorite workouts after the yellow flowers start to bloom is to pick an area of town and run up and down the streets counting all the homes that have SPORTS daffodils in their yards. It’s something I’ve done in a number of different towns over the years, and Wednesday I went on my first daffodil run of the year, covJOHN ering 6.4 miles GUNTHER of streets in Coquille that normally are filled with daffodils by the middle of February. The count for my first daffodil run: Two homes with daffodils, one rainbow on the horizon. In a month, the number of homes on the same route with daffodils will be well over 100. Meanwhile, the gorgeous weather we had last week led me to do one run that was long overdue. When we have time, my normal midweek training partner is one of my colleagues at The World, photographer Alysha Beck. Together, we’ve been over many of the streets and trails in the Bay Area, including a number of gnarly hills that Alysha wanted to try and a lot of impromptu routes. The latter was the case Friday, when Alysha said it was my turn to pick a destination. So in the bright sunshine of the afternoon, we ran from the office to Sunset Memorial Park south of town, where my goal was to find the grave of Steve Prefontaine. I’ve participated in the Prefontaine Memorial Run, the annual race that honors Pre, nearly 30 times. And I’ve made a trek up to Pre’s Rock, where he died in a car crash, a nearly annual part of my trip to Eugene to cover the state track meet. So it was about time that I visited his gravesite for the first time. And since, unlike me, Alysha didn’t grow up in the area, I’ve been trying to share with her as much about Pre as possible. Given the 70-plus-degree temperatures, the run was longer than we might have liked, but worth every step. It’s about a 3-mile run from the office to the cemetery, but Alysha and I added to the length of the run because we toured much of the facility looking for the right spot since we didn’t know where his gravestone was. When we got there, we paid tribute. We also learned it was a fitting time for a visit, since his birthday was Saturday — he would have been 63 years old this year. Pre has been an inspiration to runners around the country for a few generations now. His work ethic was legendary, and more than once one of my Saturday training partners, Michelle Philley, has thrown out the challenge “What would Pre do?” when I have been waffling on the difficulty of a particular workout. If I was a more competitive runner, I might try to emulate Pre more, pushing myself to the limits to improve my speed and endurance. As it is, I’m just thrilled to be healthy and have the renewed commitment in 2014 that, to date, I haven’t had two straight days without a run. Besides, I don’t need Pre for motivation this time of the year. I just need daffodils.

Matthew Perry takes a breath in the boys 200-yard freestyle swim Wednesday afternoon during the Bulldogs’ dual meet against Philomath.

Bulldogs tune up for big meets BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

NORTH BEND — A week away from the Civil War and another week from the district meet, North Bend’s swimming team used Wednesday’s dual meet with Philomath as a barometer. The Bulldogs split overall, with the girls winning 95-74 and the boys falling 101-63, but it’s not the final scores that matter to North Bend. “They swam good and got some good times,” Bulldogs head coach Chris Richmond said of his team. “We’re right on track for where we want to be right now.” The North Bend girls only lost one individual race — the 100-yard freestyle — and dominated throughout. Liliana Bennett won two races, the 500 freestyle and 200 individual medley and was part of the winning 400 freestyle relay team. Cassie Dallas won the 200 freestyle and 100 breaststroke and was part of the 200 medley relay win. Two-time returning state champion Alyssa Bennett was her typical brilliant self, winning the 100 butterfly and 50 freestyle, two events she usually doesn’t race. With how consistent Bennett is and how versatile she can be in the pool, Richmond can plug her into spots that will accentuate the success of the other players on the team. Because of Bennett’s dominance over the past couple of years, she admits that these dual meets serve as more of a competitive practice. Even still, she’s just fine-tuning her technique and following coach’s orders. “It’s mostly my coach. He’ll put me in whatever he thinks is best just to see what to practice and where we’re at,” Bennett said. “He’ll put

She also finished second to Liliana Bennett in the 200 IM. These last few weeks will be Hannah’s final time competing for North Bend. The Bulldog senior has made the most of the opportunity, picking up extra laps at practice and doing whatever she can to prepare. “Every meet is a challenge for me,” Hannah said. “Everything counts so I definitely have to push myself. I really have to strap down and go get it.” On the boys side, Karl Stuntnzer-Gibson won the 100 butterfly by almost three seconds and also took the 100 backstroke. Matthew Perry claimed the 200 freestyle and come in second for the 100 freestyle. Danny Woodruff

won the 500 freestyle. Those three swimmers combined with Amedee Kirkpatrick to win the 400 freestyle relay to close out the evening on a positive note for the Bulldogs. Going out on top is one of Kirkpatrick’s key concerns as he finishes out his senior season. Along with the relay win, Kirkpatrick won the 50 freestyle. He is using pool time to get ready for the postseason. “I’m just figuring out my technique and getting everything down correctly,” explained Kirkpatrick, who also came in second in the 100 breaststroke with a personal record 1:12.99. “My technique was pretty solid today.” North Bend will race again Friday against Cottage Grove before meeting up for the Civil War against Marshfield at Mingus Park next Friday.

Driver Dale Jarrett makes his acceptance speech during the NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C.

Famous names join NASCAR Hall CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Dale Jarrett had no idea what crazy things Blake Shelton might say as the country music star inducted him into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “It could have gone in a lot of different directions,” Jarrett said of Shelton’s induction speech. Shelton read a handwritten and heartfelt speech about his love of racing, inherited through his late father, who as his health declined was so thrilled that his son got to hang with some of NASCAR’s biggest stars. Jarrett on occasion spoke to Shelton’s father on the phone. “I believe it was little things like that that kept my dad happy those last few years,” Shelton said. “And even though I know he was beyond proud of my accomplishments in music, he just couldn’t get over the fact that I got to spend time with guys like Clint Bowyer and Elliott Sadler, and most of all, Dale Jarrett.” It set the tone for Jarrett’s emotional induction. He joined his father, Ned, as just the second father-son combination with

NASCAR championships inducted into the Hall. The Jarretts join Lee and Richard Petty. A three-time Daytona 500 winner, two-time Brickyard winner and the 1999 Cup champion, Jarrett was emotional the entire time. But he had to choke back tears when it came time to address his father. “My dad has been everything a son would want his father to be — successful, a leader by example, a teacher you can believe in, and always there to support me,” Jarrett said. “My dad was and still is today my hero. That’s what really makes this night so very special: I’m joining my father in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.” Ned Jarrett is the first of the 25 Hall of Fame members still alive to see his son inducted. “As a child and a 57-year-old one right now, there’s not a lot we can do that our parents will take for payment back for everything they did for us in our lives,” Jarrett said.

Apolo Anton Ohno took his soul patch, bandanas and eight Olympic medals into retirement, leaving a gaping hole in short track speedskating. J.R. Celski is poised to step into the void as America’s best hope for a medal in the wild and woolly sport known as roller derby on ice. The 23-year-old from Federal Way, Wash., will compete at his second Olympics looking to add to the pair of bronze medals he won at the 2010 Vancouver Games, when Ohno was ending his career as America’s most decorated Winter Olympian. Celski qualified in all three distances for Sochi, in addition to the 5,000-meter relay. He’s ranked among the world’s top 10 in the 1,000 and 1,500, and just outside the top 10 in the 500. This time, Celski is healthy heading to the Olympics. At the U.S. trials four years ago, his right skate sliced his left leg in a crash, spewing blood on the ice. He bruised his femoral artery and came within inches of severing it, which could have been fatal. The accident required six hours of daily physical therapy, which robbed him of practice time. But he bounced back five months later to make the podium in Vancouver. “My goal was just to get to Vancouver. I did that and the medals were just a bonus,” he said. “This time, I’m going to Sochi healthy and I’m looking forward to doing some damage.” Celski took a year off after Vancouver to re-establish his goals and mindset. Once he returned and started winning races, he rekindled the love he had for the sport. He welcomes assuming leadership of the U.S. men’s team from Ohno, who mentored Celski and remains one of his

I looked up to that guy for a long time,” said Celski, who like Ohno is from the Seattle area. “This time is completely different for me mentally, physically, I’m healthy. I’m going to ride that momentum.” In Vancouver, a team led by Ohno and now-retired Katherine Reutter earned a total of six medals — two silvers and four bronzes — to trail only powerhouse South Korea in the standings. The Americans will be hardpressed to equal that showing in Russia, but the men have the stronger team. Unlike the U.S. women, who didn’t qualify a relay team for Sochi, the U.S. men will be a goldmedal favorite in the 5,000 relay. Celski will be joined by Eddy Alvarez, Kyle Carr, Chris Creveling and Jordan Malone in making up the team. The Americans were top-ranked during the World Cup season. SEE OLYMPICS | B4

Jeremy Lamb and Derek Fisher came off the bench to score a combined 33 more for the Thunder, who have now won nine straight. Durant scored at least 30 points for the 12th straight game, matching the league’s longest such streak since Tracy McGrady did it in 14 consecutive outings in the 2002-03 season.

Defense helps Arizona keep record perfect THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STANFORD, Calif. — For nearly 9 minutes, Arizona made defensive stop after stop. In that critical sequence, the top-ranked Wildcats held Stanford scoreless and helped preserve their perfect start to the season. Nick Johnson kept Arizona’s unblemished record going for another game, hitting a go-ahead 3pointer with 51 seconds remaining and two free throws with 5.8 seconds left as Arizona survived for a 6057 victory Wednesday night for its school-record 21st straight win. “We’re an outstanding defensive team. It isn’t as if we changed any scheme, we just buckled down and had a lot of players playing very hard, and our ability to hold them to what we did is a big reason we won. Our defense won the game tonight,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said. “No question we have to execute better on offense and we have to be more confident at the line.”

NASCAR From Page B1 “In a small way, I feel like this is something I can give to them that they can be proud of,” Jarrett said. Maurice Petty was inducted to complete the Petty dynasty in the Hall, which now includes his father, brother and cousin as members of the exclusive group. “The Chief” was inducted by brother Richard Petty, the seven-time NASCAR champion and member of the inaugural Hall of Fame class. “The big deal is that it’s really the end of Petty Enterprises because we started in 1949, and now that my brother is in the Hall of Fame, then that pretty well closes the book on it,” Richard Petty said.

Arizona is one of three unbeaten teams left in Division I, joining No. 2 Syracuse, which also won Wednesday night. Fourthranked Wichita State hasn’t lost either. Dwight Powell and Josh Huestis each scored 13 points for Stanford (13-7, 4-4), which outshot Arizona 38 percent to 36 percent. “For 38 minutes, I thought we were right there,” Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said. “Credit Arizona for making the plays they had to make at the end. Nick Johnson stepping up, whether at the foul line or whether it was a 3-point bucket late. I’ve watched a lot of tape of them, he’s done it all year.” Chasson Randle missed a long 3-pointer just before the final buzzer for Stanford.

After a 3-pointer by Huestis with 10:03 remaining, Stanford didn’t score again until Powell’s layin at 1:21. Arizona State 89, Californian 78, OT: Jahii Carson scored 11 points in overtime and Arizona State got another big game out of transfer Jermaine Marshall to help the Sun Devils beat California. Carson finished with 29 points and seven assists for Arizona State (16-5, 5-3 Pac12), which won its third straight despite blowing a 16-point lead in the second half. The Sun Devils, who needed a tying 3-pointer from Marshall to force overtime, recovered and outscored the Golden Bears 17-6 in the extra period. Arizona State made 12 of 16 free throws down the stretch. Marshall, a graduate transfer who spent the past three seasons at Penn State, had 22 points and six rebounds, while Shaquielle McKissic scored 12. Justin Cobbs had 21 points for Cal (14-7, 5-3).

San Francisco 84, Portland 71: Kruize Pinkins scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds as San Francisco posted its thirdstraight conference win with a victory over Portland on Wednesday night. Cole Dickerson had 21 points and five rebounds for the Dons (14-8, 7-3 West Coast Conference). Alec Wintering led the Pilots (12-10, 4-6) with 15 points and five assists. Gonzaga 54, Santa Clara 52: Sam Dower Jr. made a game-winning 3pointer with 1.9 seconds left and finished with 12 points as Gonzaga avoided its first loss at Santa Clara since 2001. Jared Brownridge’s halfcourt shot went off the side of the rim at the buzzer and Santa Clara lost its fifth straight. Gary Bell Jr. scored 15 points, highlighted by making three 3-pointers in a little over 5 minutes late in the second half, for Gonzaga (19-3, 9-1 West Coast Conference). Evan Roquemore scored 15 points for Santa Clara (10-13, 3-7).

seven titles and more than 200 races, including seven Daytona 500s. Also in the Hall from the Petty Enterprise dynasty is patriarch Lee Petty, and the Petty boys’ cousin and crew chief, Dale Inman. “Who would have thought growing up that there would be four of us, out of a small, rural country community that would be in a North Carolina Hall of Fame?” said Maurice Petty of the family’s roots in Level Cross. Fireball Roberts, considered the first superstar of NASCAR, was the second member inducted. He won Daytona seven times, including the 1962 Daytona 500, and had two Southern 500 victories. He ran just 10 races in 1958, winning six. He died from critical burns suffered in a crash at Charlotte in 1964 when his car overturned and caught fire.

Roberts, who suffered from asthma, had always refused to soak his firesuit in flame retardant chemicals because of the fumes. His grandson, Matt McDaniel, accepted Roberts’ induction and noted his death led to safety improvements in NASCAR. “After his death, NASCAR started developing flame retardant coveralls, five point safety harnesses, special contoured seats and a fire zone fuel cell,” McDaniel said. Jack Ingram, considered one of NASCAR’s greatest drivers, was inducted by his close friend and rival Harry Gant. Ingram won three consecutive Late Model Sportsman championships, then the inaugural Busch Series title in 1982 and again in 1985. Ingram’s mark of 31 Busch wins stood until Mark Martin beat it in 1997. All but two of Ingram’s victories came on

short tracks. Ingram told a story of winning the track championship at Harris Speedway in Ruffin County by winning the final race of the season, only to have the check for his winnings bounce. He called NASCAR from the bank and was told where to go to cash the check. “I took it down there and walked in that door. They handed me five 100 dollar bills — that kept my family going for several months,” Ingram said. “I was a total supporter of NASCAR from then on because (founder) Bill France, he meant what he said when he said he guaranteed that purse. I appreciated that the whole rest of my life.” Two-time series champion T im Flock, one of NASCAR’s first dominant drivers, was remembered during his induction for the Rhesus monkey named Jocko that was his co-pilot for many races.

leads to postponement ATLANTA — The winter storm that swept through the Southeast left plans for many games in a deep freeze. Even the NBA couldn’t overcome the ice and snow which covered Atlanta and the Deep South. The Detroit Pistons’ game against the Atlanta Hawks set for Wednesday night was postponed. The Pistons were unable to make their scheduled flight into Atlanta on Tuesday night from Detroit. Georgia and Georgia Tech stuck with plans for home games against Vanderbilt and North Carolina, respectively. Alabama’s game at Auburn was moved to today. The winter storm trapped thousands of motorists on Atlanta’s frozen interstates, including Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, Tennessee coach Butch

BASEBALL Berkman retires after 15-year baseball career HOUSTON — Six-time All-Star Lance Berkman is retiring after 15 seasons in the major leagues. Berkman almost left the game last offseason before signing with the Texas Rangers. He then had another injury-plagued season and was limited to 73 games. The 37-year-old Berkman was Houston’s first-round draft pick in 1997 out of Rice, and played 12 seasons for the Astros. He played 1,879 career games, all but 287 for Houston, finishing a .293 career hitter with 366 home runs and 1,234 RBIs. “Lance was one of the greatest players in Astros history,” his original team said in a release Wednesday night.

Broncos test out cold in practice FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The Broncos braved the cold for their first full practice of Super Bowl week, working in pads for nearly two hours after a 30-minute walkthrough session Wednesday. Denver practiced on the synthetic turf outdoor field at the New York Jets training facility. By the end of practice, the temperature dipped to 21 degrees. “It was great,” Broncos coach John Fox said after practice. “We’re pretty much weather-proof. We practice in this stuff all the time. Being in Denver, we’ve played in a few different elements. We practiced numerous times in single digit, played in single digit, played in The Associated Press wind. We’ve practiced in San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick tries to get away from Seattle’s Bruce Irvin during the NFC Championship game. The Seahawks will snow many times. We’re pretty much ready for anytry to get similar pressure on Denver’s Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl on Sunday. thing.” Fox has chosen not to use the indoor field at the Jets plush headquarters for prac-

Bet on the better defense Sunday BY BARRY WILNER The Associated Press That old maxim about defenses winning championships was being spread on pretty heavily during Super Bowl week. By the Broncos, of all teams. Yes, the very same AFC champions who tore up the league with a record 606 points, 55 touchdowns coming off Peyton Manning ’s arm, have been touting how strong their defense has become. Measure it against Seattle’s unit, which allowed a very miserly 231 points and ranked first against the pass and in overall D, and the Broncos would seem to be whistling a hollow tune. But linebacker Danny Trevathan, a breakout player in his second NFL season, sees plenty of greatness in his defense, too. “Oh yeah. You are supposed to have that attitude,” Trevathan said. “On defense you’re not supposed to let guys push you over. You are supposed to be the aggressor on defense and you are supposed to have that attitude. I think that is what makes playing defense so passionate to me. “I think this game was meant for tough guys. You can’t be soft out here.”

Pro Picks

No one is soft on either of these teams, of course. On the contrary, it’s only the second time in 20 years that the top seed in each conference got this far. It’s also that classic matchup that so excites fans, media and, yes, players. The Seahawks can’t wait for the chance to test themselves against Manning, seeking his second ring in an almostcertain Hall of Fame career. “It’s going to be a great challenge,” middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “They’re talented all across the board. They protect Peyton well and they run the ball well. He’s definitely passed the ball well. It’s up to us to do our jobs and make sure that we come ready to play.” Expect both sides to be very ready. Denver is a 21⁄ 2-point favorite over Seattle. The main reason for that spread: In the points-crazed NFL, fans who bet early dive headfirst into the offense. With their wallets open. Plus, the biggest star in this game, and pretty much any time he is in uniform, is Manning. That draws more support for the Broncos. But not here. Pro Picks sees the Seahawks’ quick, relentless and heady defense putting more pressure on Manning than he has seen all season. Yes, he’s been sacked

only 20 times, and he might not go down a whole bunch in the Jersey Meadowlands on Sunday. But he will be forced to throw before he wants to or before his four outstanding receivers — Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker and tight end Julius Thomas — shake free from the tight coverage of the NFL’s best secondary led by AllPros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas. Seattle also brings the heat with the deepest rotation of linemen in the league, and some savvy, versatile linebackers. The Seahawks don’t take their foot off the gas, either. For the Broncos to prosper, they’ll need a huge contribution from Knowshon Moreno and the running game. It could happen, particularly if the Seahawks are overly protective of not letting Manning get on track. But hardly anyone dominates on the ground against Seattle. For those who believe the Seahawks will need to light up the scoreboard to beat the Broncos, we think a couple of touchdowns and a few field goals will do the job. Silent man Marshawn Lynch running the ball in Beast Mode, and some improvisation from quarterback Russell Wilson — along with the best defense since the 2000 Ravens — will be enough. SEAHAWKS, 23-21.

tices this week, opting for the type of natural elements that will greet his team at Met Life Stadium on Super Sunday. Fox was pleased with the flow after the travel and various commitments connected to playing in a Super Bowl. Wednesday is typically when the focus toward the game increases, given the fullscale practices. “I wanted to see how well they would re-boot, get recharged and practice what we’ve put in,” Fox said. “They recalled it and it went very well. We had a very good practice.” The Broncos had a sense of normalcy on a few levels. Peyton Manning, as usual, was in command and precise with his throws. He seemed unaffected by the elements. “Very sharp,” Fox said. “What I’ve noticed, he had to get used to weather over the past two years. I think he’s done an unbelievable job, which I think people forget.”

Prognosticating ape will make his choice today SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — If you’re still waiting to make a prediction on Sunday’s Super Bowl, you may want to hold off until today, when a Utah ape who has correctly picked the winner six straight years makes his selection. The ape, named Eli, will choose between papiermache helmets with logos of the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks this morning at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. Zookeepers let the full-grown orangutan loose in the room with the helmets and the one he touches first is his pick. Eli sometimes waits and thinks over his pick, said Erica Hansen of Hogle Zoo. But last year, he charged right

out and knocked over a papier mache goal post decorated with the Ravens logo. He ignored the 49ers post. Hansen said interest and excitement about Eli’s Super Bowl pick has increased as his streak grows. This year, people have been asking daily when he’s making his pick. Each year, zoo officials worry that Eli’s remarkable streak will end, but it just keeps going year after year. “He’s better than the Vegas odds-makers,” Hansen said. After he makes his muchawaited prognostication, 13year-old Eli is joined by his mate, Eve, and daughter, Acara, and allowed to smash, play and eat the papiermache helmets.

Winter Olympics

Randall reaches new heights for Americans BY MATTIAS KAREN The Associated Press

Every time K ikkan Randall reaches a career milestone, she’s also breaking new ground for American cross-country skiing. In a sport with little in the way of tradition in the U.S., no American woman had ever even been on the podium in a World Cup event before Randall earned a third-place finish in January 2007. Seven years later, she has 10 career victories, is the defending World Cup sprint champion, and a world champion in the team sprint with Jessica Diggins — and every achievement has been a first for an American woman. Now there’s just the big one left: an Olympic medal. And in Sochi, at her fourth Winter Games, Randall has a real chance to finally get one: she is entering the individual freestyle sprint as one of the big gold-medal favorites, another status previously unheard of for an American. “The Olympics are really kind of the gold standard in

the sport,” Randall said in a phone interview. “It’s been wonderful to achieve the success I have had in the sport, but success at the Olympics is really the final one to go for. I feel my career has been building up to this point. I know it’s just one race on one day, but I would love to add an Olympic medal to that collection.” In the wake of Randall’s successes, a number of other American skiers have also emerged on the World Cup. On the men’s side, Simi Hamilton won a sprint stage on the Tour de Ski this season, while veteran Andrew Newell is also an outside contender in the men’s sprint. But Randall is the team’s only real star. “We have a unique opportunity to make history in Sochi,” U.S. cross-country head coach Chris Grover said when the American team was announced. Only one American has ever won an Olympic medal in cross-country skiing, with Bill Koch taking silver in the men’s 30-kilometer race at

The Associated Press

Kikkan Randall competes during the qualification of a Women’s World Cup Cross Country Ski event in Poland on Jan. 18. the 1976 Innsbruck Games. On the women’s side, Randall is the only one to even make the top 10, with an eighthplace finish in the classicalstyle sprint in Vancouver four years ago as her best result. This time, though, the individual sprint is a freestyle event — by far Randall’s best discipline. At the age of 31, she is also a much stronger skier than four years ago. Nine of her 10 individual World Cup victories have

come since 2011, and all of them in freestyle sprints — the event she specializes in. She won the last two World Cup events before Sochi, in Poland and the Czech Republic, although those victories came against slightly weakened fields as some top skiers focused on training for Sochi. Still, those were confidence-boosting wins that showed she is peaking at the right time.

The problem for Randall is that the sprint race doesn’t come down to just form. Luck sometimes plays its part as well. In the individual sprint, skiers have to go through a qualifying run, then a quarterfinal and semifinal heat before the top six reach the final. With six skiers fighting it out in each heat on a narrow course, poles and skis often get tangled up and there are a lot of spills and crashes. It is one of the most spectator-friendly events of all the cross-country disciplines — full of tactics and close finishes — but also the one where most accidents occur. Randall knows that all too well. In 2011, the American was entering the world championships as the gold-medal favorite in the freestyle sprint — again having won the last two World Cup events before the championships. But in the quarterfinals, another competitor ran over one of her skis, causing Randall to fall, and she finished last in

her heat — ending her chances of an individual world title. “It was definitely pretty tough after that, because everything had been focused on the preparations and I knew I was in the best shape of my life and I could contend for a medal,” the Anchorage, Alaska, native said. “That really taught me a lot that will help me going into the Olympics. I know that my career and my self-worth doesn’t depend on whether I get that medal. There’s always a chance that something could happen, and I just have to be focused on doing my best. That’s what counts at the end of the day.” And she insists that entering the games as one of the favorites doesn’t add any extra pressure — only more motivation. “I really enjoyed my previous three Olympics . but I really wanted to be there and contend for a medal,” Randall said. “And to finally be at that point, I’m just excited about the opportunity that lies ahead.”

Taylor Gold competes during the men’s snowboarding superpipe final at a Dew Tour event in Breckenridge, Colo., on Dec. 14.

High-flying siblings eye medals BY WILL GRAVES The Associated Press If Ken Gold can be honest for a minute, he never saw this coming. He just didn’t think it was possible for his son Taylor and his daughter Arielle to share the same room with each other, let alone the same sport. “Every possible opportunity for them to get into a fight, it happened,” he said. Toys. Who sat where at dinner. The remote. Normal brother and sister stuff. Give the Golds a chance to disagree and they not only took it, they usually took it up a notch, to the point where Ken once broke his hand after punching a wall in frustration trying to get them to cut it out. So no, the patriarch of snowboarding’s resident first family didn’t see this coming, the day his kids would stand as the semi-stoic bookends of a giddy photo of the U.S. Olympic snowboarding team. There they were on the sun-splashed Mammoth Mountain two weeks ago, arms aloft in triumph after taking two very different routes to the same destination. Sochi. “There wasn’t any cheesy hugging or anything,” Arielle said with a laugh. “We’re not like that.” They’re also not at each other’s throats anymore either. That stage has long since passed, replaced by a close friendship that has helped both join the elite halfpipe riders on the planet. There’s every chance 17year-old Arielle and 20year-old Taylor — born 899 days apart — come home from Russia with a medal draped around their neck. Ask them how that’s even possible and they’re eager to give the other credit. For Arielle, her older brother is equal parts coach, motivational speaker and sounding board. For Taylor,

Arielle Gold competes during the snowboarding superpipe final at a Dew Tour event in Breckenridge, Colo., on Dec. 14. his little sister’s rapid rise from part-timer to budding star provided the jolt necessary for him to close the gap on the Shaun Whites and Danny Davises of the world. When Arielle spent most of 2013 coming home from World Cup events with a medal stuffed in her luggage, he couldn’t help but notice no matter how much she tried to downplay it. She hadn’t even gotten serious about her riding until 2011 and yet here she was throwing down world-class runs on a weekly basis while Taylor — bitten by the snowboarding bug while watching the 2002 Olympics on TV — spent the year struggling just to get out of qualifying. “I was definitely jealous,” Taylor said. “I think that was important for my progression. I just liked having her there to support me and help me push through a kind of the rough season. It was awesome.” And, it turns out, necessary. “He had to find ways to be competitive with the best guys in the world,” Ken said. Now Taylor is there, only he’s done it in an entirely different way than his sister. He’s an old soul in a sport is

obsessed with reinvention and pushing the limits. While he lacks White’s explosiveness, he makes up for it by trying to tweak each wellestablished trick into something new. An extra board grab here. A remix on an old favorite there. It led to a series of podium finishes in the run-up to Sochi. In fact, the first U.S. halfpipe snowboarder to earn an automatic bid for Russia wasn’t the two-time gold medalist with the red locks and the corporate-America approved smile but the kid who listens to Led Zeppelin and spends his downtime with a guitar in his hand far from the spotlight. Press Taylor on when the flip switched for him, and his response is a time-tested tale. Guided by Arielle and his coaches, Taylor stopped worrying about the results and more about the process. The joy in his riding returned. So did the kind of scores that make him a legitimate shot to add to what should be a heavy medal haul for the U.S. in the Caucasus Mountains. Not that it matters to Taylor, who admits to intentionally pushing aside thoughts of what it would be

like to see his name near the top of the leaderboard after the halfpipe finals on Feb. 11. “What matters is putting down those runs when it counts,” he said. “I’m not thinking ‘Oh, I have to do this to get to the Olympics or I have to do this at the Olympics.”’ Maybe it’s because the field is so stacked. Maybe it’s because he knows he’s got at least one and probably two more Olympic cycles to go if he can stay healthy. His sister might have three or more. And while there’s more depth than ever in women’s snowboarding, the way Arielle has sprinted up the rankings is a testament to her own unique talents, ones that she finally realized she might want to pursue. For a decade, snowboarding was just a hobby. Her first love is horses and she’s an accomplished rider who idly talks about becoming an Olympic horseman later in life. It would frustrate her brother, honestly, to see her randomly show up at snowboarding events and cruise to a medal without breaking much of a sweat. “Winter would come around and she would be like, ‘I guess I’ll go ride,”’ he said. It wasn’t until she began entering bigger competitions in 2011 that she realized she might want to start taking this whole thing seriously. “She would go to contests and not win and she was like, ‘Man, I need to get my stuff together,’” Taylor said. It didn’t take long. By 2013 she was a regular on the podium, overpowering halfpipes with her own blend of athleticism and ambition. Now she’s an Olympian, turning a journey her brother assumed would be a solo one into a unique family affair. And you know what? He’s fine with it. “It’s such a rare thing to happen,” he said. “It’s one of those things you’ve thought about in theory ... to have it happen is pretty unreal.”

Sarah Burke’s friends will bring their snowflakes to Sochi, wearing necklaces shaped like the snowflake tattoo the late Canadian star had etched on her foot. “When they accepted halfpipe skiing, my first thought was, ‘This is Sarah’s Olympics,’” said one of Burke’s many protigis, American halfpipe skier Angeli VanLaanen. Each time an athlete in the new Olympic sports of ski halfpipe and slopestyle steps into the starting gate, they’ll have Burke to thank. A beloved mentor among her competition, Burke lobbied hard for a number of causes: Equal pay for women in action sports, inclusion of all the freeskiing disciplines for women in the X Games and, ultimately, acceptance of those events into the Olympic Games. Burke died Jan. 19, 2012, nine days after a training accident on a halfpipe in Park City, Utah, and about nine months after the International Olympic Committee said “yes” to her longtime dream. The four-time Winter X Games champion was 29, in the prime of her career. It was a loss that stole away the soul of the sport and its best skier. Burke was the first woman to land a 720-degree jump, a 900 and a 1080 in a halfpipe in competition. She would’ve been the favorite to win halfpipe skiing’s first Olympic gold medal. Instead, it hits the biggest stage in sports looking for a star — trying to replace the irreplaceable. “A lot of people say she’s still the most influential girl in freeskiing today,” said Mike Hanley, a longtime freestyle skier and coach. “She pushed the technical level of the sport so far. But she had such an amazing sense of balance in life, between the image she put out and the level of technical

OLYMPICS From Page B1 “We all practice together every day and that’s going to make a huge difference,” Celski said. Their togetherness is in stark contrast to the turmoil that roiled the U.S. short track program beginning in 2012. Coach Jae Su Chun was accused by a dozen national team members of physical, emotional and verbal abuse. He also was alleged to have ordered speedskater Simon Cho to sabotage the skates of a Canadian rival. Chun denied all allegations, and other members of the team came to his defense. He’s serving a two-year suspension through October, and Jessica Smith is the only skater he coaches to have

She was the full package that I’d hope all the girls out there are aspiring for.” Instead of everyone chasing Burke in Sochi, there will be three or four top contenders. They include Maddie Bowman, the 20year-old from South Lake Tahoe, Calif., who is coming off a win at the Winter X Games. VanLaanen, who overcame a scary and hardto-detect bout with Lyme disease, could be in the mix. There’s also Canada’s Roz Groenewoud, a one-time teammate of Burke’s, who is rounding into form after knee injuries. Before every contest, “Roz G” and Burke used to stand at the top and shout, “Let’s stay on top, one-two, one-two.” It’s a lonelier starting tent these days. “She was extremely driven, extremely competitive, wanted to win, wanted to do her best, but it never colored who she was,” Groenewoud said. “It never made her less compassionate or less generous with complements or anything like that. It’s a good lesson for people outside of sports, as well. A good universal message.” Slopestyle makes its Olympic debut in both skiing and snowboarding. The sport is a wild ride down the mountain, featuring turns off rails and jumps with steeply angled takeoffs.

made the Olympic team. He plans to be in the stands in Sochi, although he won’t be allowed inside the racing area. Celski was among Chun’s accusers. “Everybody had their choice,” Celski said. Canadian Stephen Gough was brought in to oversee the fractured national program, and tread lightly in trying to bring cohesion in the months leading up to Sochi. “He made sure that the right people were in place,” Celski said of Gough’s staffing choices. “They’re a lot of the reason why we are the team we are today. Everybody is meshing really well together. That’s what the biggest change has been in 1 the past 1 ⁄2 years is really figuring out who are the key people that are going to raise this team’s spirits.”

FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 2014 It will be essential that you take better care of yourself this year. Devoting some time to creative endeavors will turn out to be in your best interest because they will stimulate your mind and help to relieve any stress you are feeling as a result of personal matters. You will feel a strong urge for change. Diversifying your activities will be imperative. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Dealing with an emotional partner will be a challenge for you today. Try to take an impartial view of the situation. Do not allow other people to deflate you or cause you problems. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Experiences in or around hospitals may leave you feeling a bit dejected. Try not to take anything too personally at this time. Your instincts are good, so follow your gut feelings. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Today is a good day to initiate professional changes. Interviews or a good discussion with your boss could lead to advancement if handled correctly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — A spontaneous outing will turn into a social event. You will gain a lot of insight from talking to peers or relatives today. Be attentive because a secret adversary may attempt to undermine you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Making a financial deal with someone will require caution, as deception is likely. You may also have personal difficulties with someone close to you.

Now is not the time to make a force play. You will be frustrated by the obstacles you face. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — A work situation is likely to make you

emotional. Females may cause professional difficulties for you. An opportunity to make a career change will be beneficial, if taken.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Deception is present in your home environment. It would be best to deal with it head-on. Be clear and direct, and you will find a solution to your problem. A residential move is likely at this time. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Evasiveness in communications is likely to occur. In-laws may be meddlesome or may try to throw you off course. Avoid making any life-changing decisions today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Get out and socialize with friends. Do something physical in nature, and you may meet some interesting new people. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You will have a hard time handling an emotional partner today. Try to face the truth of the matter. Don’t let other people crush your spirit or cause you grief. SATURDAY, FEB. 1, 2014 You won’t need to take any idle time this year. You will be focused and prepared to meet every demand that you face. You will have no trouble achieving whatever it is that you set out to do. You will be highly organized, and your ideas will be well-defined and ready to be put into action. A financial upgrade is also very likely. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Do not allow anyone to play with your heart or call your emotional stability into question. Give yourself some time to think. Uncertainty around your love life is evident. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Secret encounters may lead to a thrilling adventure. Be cautious about sharing details about private affairs. Now is a great time to take a pleasure trip if you can.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You may have an unrealistic idea about your environment and your current position. Be sure that you’re clear about your range of obligations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Emotional deception may lead you down the wrong path. You must face whatever is at the heart of the matter if you want to put it right. Be precise and completely honest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It’s best not to promise anything that you can’t actually deliver. You are prone to spending too much right now. Resist the temptation to agree to any joint financial ventures. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your lover may feel the need to resort to emotional blackmail if you have been neglecting his or her needs. Burn your energy through physical activities. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be careful what you say to your colleagues today, or they may misinterpret you. Think carefully about your reactions. Taking a drastic approach will not make up for past mistakes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Children may choose to fib about their whereabouts today. Traveling will work out well, whether for business or pleasure. Avoid getrich-quick investment schemes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Problems with gas, oil or water in your home may mess up your day.

Oregon Coast Home Finder

Business Profile by Geneva Miller | For The World A well timed real estate transaction makes for satisfied buyers and sellers. Amy and Joe Aguirre are brokers with Windermere/North Port Realty who work together to provide clients with the information they need to keep pace with the local market. “In real estate, it’s all about timing and planning so (our clients) can make the best of it,” said Amy. To help clients land the timely purchase or sale, Amy and Joe rely on teamwork. They started work in real estate three years ago under Principal Brokers Jim Berg and Ed Meyer. Berg and Meyer have

developed an inviting office atmosphere, where brokers, lenders and title officers network and share what they know. Folks are welcome to just stop in and say hello and enjoy the view of the waterfront near the Coos Bay office. “We have a constant flow of people in our office that deal with every piece of the real estate puzzle,” said Joe. As a couple, Joe says he and Amy bring a young, aggressive approach to marketing. Amy believes buyers and sellers shouldn’t have to work hard to learn what’s happening in the real estate market. “We go the extra mile and think outside the box,” she said. Joe’s professional background includes sales and marketing for companies such as Sprint and Xerox. Amy specialized in small business management, with experience in architectural administration.

The couple moved to Coos Bay 10 years ago from Ithaca, New York, drawn to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. They love Oregon’s Bay Area community and spend their free time outdoors–hiking, beachcombing and 4-wheeling. The Aguirres have represented many newcomers in their three years at Windermere, helping home buyers discover unique qualities in each area neighborhood. In recent months, a more stable market has enticed more sellers to list residential and commercial real estate. Adding commercial properties to their listing portfolio is an exciting opportunity for the Aguirres to contribute to local enterprise. “We want to help our little town shine and boost economic development in the area, especially our highly visible downtown 101 area,” said Amy. Curious about the local economy? Visit the Aguirre web site for a range of information, from snapshot reviews of real estate sales, to regional economic reports,

The 7 Day Organization Plan An hour a day keeps the mess away. Stay on schedule and your home will stay organized. No stress required.



ou’ve got a workout plan and a diet plan for your physical health. But what about your house? An organization plan may be just the answer. The key to getting started is to keep the tasks reasonable, professional organizers say. Save the big projects for an intensive spring cleaning. Meanwhile, reduce your everyday messes and stresses with a sevenday series of manageable tasks that target problem areas and can be completed in less than an hour. “Cleaning out an office seems overwhelming, but cleaning out a drawer isn’t so intimidating,” says certified professional organizer Seana Turner, whose company is based in Darien, Conn. “Go for quick successes when you’re first getting started to gain momentum and a sense of accomplishment,” To begin, make sure you have the right tools. You’ll need six or seven storage boxes or laundry baskets with labels: trash, recycle, donate, relocate (for items that belong in another part of the house), storage and sell (optional). Each day, use this sorting system to divide and conquer clutter. You also will need clear plastic bins for storage; a two-drawer file cabinet and folders; slim velvet clothing hangers; and hooks. Then you’re ready to take the one-week challenge, and repeat as necessary. >>

Day 1: Accounts Manageable “Use technology to simplify your life,” suggests Monica Ricci, a recurring expert organizer on the HGTV show “Mission: Organization.” She recommends several web-based and mobile applications, including for household accounts like bills, subscriptions and point-based reward programs; ZipList, a virtual shopping list and recipe box; and Remember the Milk, an online todo list and task-management program that syncs to mobile devices. Most importantly, sign up for cloudbased computer data backup like “It runs in the background, scanning your computer for new material, and automatically backs it up. You don’t need to remember to do it,” Ricci says, “so it’s one less thing to worry about.” Tech-based organizers eliminate paperwork and make it easier to find and sort

information, which saves a lot of time. A computer is searchable, while a file cabinet is not.

Day 2: News You Can Use By definition, a bulletin is a summary of news or current events. Yet kitchen and home office bulletin boards tend to become burial sites for paperwork and repositories of ancient history. Take down all the notifications, schedules, schoolwork, lists and clippings and toss everything that’s out-of-date or expired. Relocate papers to their proper places if you wish to file them for future reference or save them as keepsakes, Turner says. Only items pertaining to current or upcoming events belong on a bulletin board.

Day 3: Stack Attack Do a 60-minute paper purge, starting on surfaces and in drawers where printed materials accumulate. Many printed materials are readily available online, including user manuals, takeout menus, recipes, catalogs, magazines and reference books. In a 15-minute blitz, dispose of papers and books that are accessible online. Spend the remaining 45 minutes dismantling as many stacks as you can. “Paper is hot, warm or cold. Hot papers require prompt action, like bills and RSVPs,” says productivity consultant Sara Caputo, founder of Radiant Organizing in Santa Barbara, Calif. Use an inbox, wall pocket or bulletin board for hot papers, and file or dispose of them as they are dealt with. Warm papers are documents used periodically, such as bank statements and health records. They belong in a two-drawer file cabinet. Cold papers are files that are rarely needed but can’t be thrown away, such as tax returns, Caputo says. They can be boxed, labeled and stored in the attic, basement or on a high shelf.

Day 4: Bathroom Blitz Expired medicines and cosmetics not only cause unnecessary clutter, they pose safety risks. “Cleaning out the medicine cabinet is a quick, easy, high-reward project,” Turner says, because you can tell at a glance which medicines are expired. Empty everything out, sort the discards from the keepers and wipe down the cabinet inside

and out before putting things back. Time permitting, consider replacing the towel rack with a row of hooks. “Children in particular don’t do well with towel racks. They’ll use hooks so much sooner,” Turner says. Hooks decrease the likelihood of a heap of damp towels on the floor and make it easier to remember whose towel belongs to whom.

Day 5: Wardrobe Reality Check “Your closet is neither a hope chest nor a museum. If you haven’t fit into a size 6 for years, donate those clothes to someone who will actually use them,” Caputo says, adding that if you slim down, you’ll probably want fresher fashions anyway. Without overthinking, do a quick wardrobe purge, parting ways with clothing that is worn out, dated or unflattering. Transfer the clothes to the slim anti-slip velvet hangers, which hog less closet space than thicker plastic hangers. Caputo has a trick to deal with the “maybes” that are just too hard to get rid of: Hold on to them for now. The point of this exercise is to make quick and easy decisions, not tough ones. Hang all the hangers backward, with the hook facing outward. Switch the hanger to its proper position (hook facing inward) after an item of clothing is worn.

In six months to a year, evaluate the items you haven’t worn and start paring down more decisively.

Day 6: Cups Runneth Over “Cups and mugs somehow just automatically multiply,” says Ricci, founder of Catalyst Organizing Solutions in Atlanta. Pull out all the drinkware and organize it by type: juice glasses, plastic tumblers, water bottles, travel mugs. Downsize the collection to avoid precarious stacking.

Day 7: Reverse Santa Start rotating toys to minimize clutter and keep children’s interest piqued. When children are away, gather the toys they haven’t played with in a while and put them in the basement or attic. Unless they ask about specific toys, in which case you can give them back, wait a few weeks or months to reintroduce the purloined playthings and take away others. Younger kids will think they’ve gotten new toys with each rotation, Caputo says. If your kids are older, give them a bin and a monetary incentive to get rid of clothing, books, toys and games they no longer use. A payout of a quarter per item should be sufficient, Caputo says.
