Serving Oregon’s South Coast Since 1878

Cover Oregon clings to its dream

Bay Area says ‘goodbye’ to Natalie Hill

BY JONATHAN J. COOPER Associated Press

SALEM — With a reputation as a pacesetter in health care, Oregon laid out bold plans for complying with the federal overhaul. The state wouldn’t just create a health insurance exchange, a complicated undertaking in its own right. Oregon officials set out to build one of the biggest and best in the nation — a model that other states would want to copy. But more than a month after Cover Oregon’s online enrollment was supposed to launch, reality is lagging far behind Gov. John Kitzhaber’s grand ideas. The online system still doesn’t work, and the exchange has yet to enroll a single person in health insurance. Interviews with state officials and a review of public records by The Associated Press suggest Cover Oregon officials bit off more than they could chew and clung to their ambitious vision even when their risk management consultants raised alarms. While rushing to get the exchange done, programmers and project managers also were busy with separate complex computer projects for the Oregon Health Authority and the Department of Human Services. Cover Oregon officials say they’re working hard to finish the project and insist the features they’re creating will be worth the wait — even if it remains unclear when the site will go online. “We stuck to the vision, and we’re experiencing now the bumps that go along with having a grand vision that doesn’t work out exactly the way you hope it will,” said Amy Fauver, chief communications officer for Cover Oregon. Fauver said “we’re confident that we will get the system up and running here in the near future” and that it “will be something we can be really proud of.” More than $300 million has been spent on the exchange so far, but the online enrollment system is still having trouble accurately determining whether people in complex family arrangements are eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Cover Oregon officials say their launch has been delayed because they

CB teen touched the lives of many BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World

COOS BAY — She met Taylor Swift, pet a tiger and shot hoops with the Portland Trail Blazers. But Natalie Hill never did make it to Harry Potter’s Platform 9-3/4. Hill, 17, died Oct. 30 after a three-yearlong battle with osteosarcoma. Saturday afternoon, the Marshfield High School student’s “bucket list” hung from the rafters of the school’s main gym as more than 300 family, friends, classmates and community members filed in for a celebration of her life.

And a celebration it was, as the school band played the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” and volunteers doled out bags of popcorn from the concession stand. The service was keeping in spirit with the life of Hill, whose upbeat attitude and lifeaffirming outlook drew supporters and media coverage from across the state. As the clock struck 1 p.m., the gym’s game buzzer sounded and Marshfield athletic director Greg Mulkey walked to the podium at the center of the court. “You know what that meant to Natalie,” he said, teary-eyed. “It meant game time.” Speaker after speaker recounted stories of how she brightened the world of those

around her. Physical education teacher Linda George told how Natalie had charmed a taxi cab driver while going to check off number 29 on her bucket list — getting ice cream with George. Lesli Traylor, Hill’s teacher at Resource Link, recounted Natalie’s creative use of her prosthetic leg — a weapon against irritating boys. “I know Natalie would want me to be up here, because she enjoyed watching me squirm,” said her best friend Samantha Ring. Ring said Natalie excelled at forcing people out of their comfort zones. SEE NATALIE | A8

Affordable health care muddle What does the word “affordable” in the Affordable Care Act mean? Many people might assume it means Obamacare will make health coverage less expensive. That’s certainly the impression President Obama gave when he promised his national health care scheme would “cut the average family’s premium by about $2,500 per year.” But Obama and the Democrats who passed the law didn’t really mean that premiums will go down. What they meant was that premiums might well go up, but the government will give some Americans money with which they can pay the higher premiums and still come out ahead. For some people that will be true. For others, not so much. Unlike Social Security and Medicare, Obamacare is a means-tested entitlement program. It will give low-income Americans substantial taxpayer-paid subsidies with which to purchase insurance. People who make a bit more will receive smaller subsidies, and those above a certain income level will receive BYRON no subsidies at all. If they YORK have to purchase higherpriced coverage, that’s Columnist their problem. The pro-reform Kaiser Family Foundation has created, on its website, a subsidy calculator into which anyone can enter his location, income and family size to come up with an estimate of how big, or small, his Obamacare subsidy will be. Start, for example, with a low-income family of four living near St. Louis, Mo., with $35,325 in household income (that is 150 percent of the federal poverty rate for a family that size). A Silver Plan policy for the family would have an annual premium of $8,088, according to Kaiser. But the family would receive a taxpayer-paid subsidy of $6,675, which means the family would pay, with its own money, just $1,413 for the coverage. (Kaiser chose the Silver Plan for the calculator because that is the plan that determines the size of Obamacare subsidies.) Of course, most families of four in Missouri make more than $35,325 a year. The 2012 Census Bureau estimated that the median income for a Missouri family of four was $72,230 — meaning that half the state’s families of four are below that level and half are above. For a family that is right on the median income, $72,230, the annual premium would still be $8,088, but the taxpayerpaid subsidy would fall to $1,226, meaning the family would pay, with its own money, $6,862 for the coverage. Is that a better deal than they have now? Maybe yes, and maybe no. In any event, they won’t save as much as the president promised. Finally, choose a higher income level, but one at which there are still a lot of people. For a family of four with an income of $85,000, the premium remains $8,088 but the subsidy shrinks to just $13 a year, meaning the family will pay, with its own money, $8,075 for coverage. So that family will technically receive help with its health care costs — but not really. For families above that level, and there are a lot of them, the subsidy will be $0. The bottom line is, when — or if — large numbers of people actually begin purchasing coverage on the Obamacare exchanges, many will find the much-touted subsidies aren’t for them. And that will be the key question of Obamacare: Will it help more people than it hurts, or will it hurt more people than it helps? If the answer is the former, Obamacare might become a permanent feature of American life. If the answer is the latter, it will be politically unsustainable and will fail. The administration and its defenders might argue that the numbers will be a bit different, that some premiums could be lower or subsidies higher. But the basics are the same: Obamacare is all about subsidies, and “affordable” means the government is paying for all or part of it. That is why the administration and its defenders are urging Democrats nervous about the disastrous Obamacare rollout to just wait for the subsidies to arrive. When that happens, they say, the Obamacare controversy will subside. Whatever the case, the cost to taxpayers will be enormous. Obamacare limits the percentage of income that subsidy-receiving Americans have to spend on health coverage. Those at the top of the subsidy ladder are obligated to spend no more than 9.5 percent of their income on premiums. Those lower down pay a lower percentage — for that family of four with $35,325 in annual income, it would be 4 percent. The percentage of income that people pay doesn’t change if the price of coverage goes up. So if the $8,088 premium becomes a $10,000 premium, or a $12,000 premium, the subsidy recipient doesn’t have to pay more. It’s the subsidy — paid for by taxpayers — that goes up. So the “affordable” in Affordable Care Act doesn’t really mean affordable at all. Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

Letters to the Editor Wishing Obama would just stop I have been writing a lot about Obama on Facebook. Does he ever see it? He should get his rump thrown out of office. He’s not for America, he’s for himself. He doesn’t care what you think or feel; he does it for himself. Have they proven he is not a statesman but a foreigner. Why do they let him keep on with his bull pucky. Oprah helped him in so they could make history about the first black, so called, president. Which is all he is. But I guess he likes all the good attention. I am not alone in feeling this way. Marilyn M. Warvie Coos Bay

What’s ‘the best’ when all are best? We had to laugh at the Best of the South Coast businesses insert in The World Saturday morning. If you have to pick “the best” when you need one of the services, it would be hard, since in some categories all the places that do that service are listed. It is kind of like giving trophies to all the kids, not just the best, who really did an outstanding job. I always thought “the best” meant the one who is really above the rest, the very best! Claudia Craig Charleston

City leaders need to craft a vision A challenge to the Coos Bay City Council. My wife and I moved here almost four years ago and over this time I have really become concerned over the lack of direction that Coos Bay and its leaders have exhibited. The community we moved from in Southern California had a goal to be the La Jolla, or hub, of San Diego East County. It took years but they brought in several shopping areas and a business park, and now people come up from Mexico and the greater San Diego area to visit and shop there. They had a goal and they got the citizens behind it and it was achieved. I don’t see a long term goal to make Coos Bay a dynamic community with opportunities for its citizens. I have heard the mayor talk about the survey that suggests Coos Bay will be losing population in the coming years. I have read the local paper that describes the problem and believes that our old way of counting on lumber, shipping, fishing and drawing in manufacturing will not work in the future. I have seen readers write in outlining the problems. I agree. Personally, I believe that any future for us will involve either, or both, tourists or

retirees. What I don’t see is the city taking a leadership position in starting to solve the problem. I do see various agencies and organizations going in their own direction with no overall goal and process to achieve it for the greater community. My challenge to the city council is at your December goal setting meeting to set a master goal for five years, 10 years and longer. A realistic master goal to make Coos Bay flourish. Not just maintenance goals but an overall goal to be the place on the Oregon Coast that people want to visit and live at. Then once the goal is set, to begin taking active steps to achieve it. Not just platitudes but real incremental steps to make Coos Bay the most desirable place to visit and live on the Oregon Coast. Dennis Dater Coos Bay

Saying ‘no’ to LNG plant on our area Boost Southern Oregon says Jordan Cove will support jobs and schools, really? How many permanent jobs will J.C. support? And for how long? Temporary jobs and some money for schools. In return, we get a LNG terminal and liquefaction plant right in a tsunami inundation zone. Further, we get a 230-mile pipeline through our forests, streams and private property fraught with all the problems we have had with many fires in the area that this proposed pipeline will take. Be advised that your city leaders have released the Jordan Cove project from any claims. So who is going to clean up the mess if there is a huge earthquake, tsunami or pipeline leak? This is not what this area needs. We need an industry that is clean and

sustainable and something that will grow this community and jobs. Come on people, wake up! Paula Jones North Bend

Remember vets on this special day Your View

BY CAMERON SMITH In the days leading up to and including Veterans’ Day, I will have the privilege to connect with Oregon’s veterans at parades, pancake breakfasts, and ceremonies across the state. It has been four years since I returned from my third and final deployment to Iraq. My journey began when I walked into a Marine Corps recruiting station on September 10, 2001 — less than 24 hours before this country would be unfathomably altered. By the time I was in basic training, our nation’s war drums were beating with the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. When I reported to my first duty station in San Diego, my unit had deployed the week prior. I threw my personal effects into storage and joined them in Al Anbar, Iraq. When I raised my right hand to serve, I wanted to be tested

and part of something larger than myself. Only now do I fully appreciate the depth of history and tradition I joined. Across all generations of veterans, there is a shared bond whether they served stateside or in places like Iwo Jima or Inchon, Khe Sanh or Kandahar, Normandy or Najaf. My decision to join the Marines also meant that I had enlisted my family to serve. My wife and parents endured the anxiety of three deployments and held down the home front. They taught me that our military families are the backbone of this nation’s forces. While they do not wear the uniform, there is no question they serve with quiet strength and unwavering support. Now safely at home with a

young family of my own, I am keenly aware that we still have thousands deployed in Afghanistan. As we close out the fight overseas, our veterans begin the fight at home to access health care, continue their education and find work with a mission. The wars will end, but the effort to serve our veterans is just beginning. Do not underestimate or overlook our returning veterans. They have hard-earned skills and are ready to lead here at home. And for those most impacted by their service, understand their tenacious spirit and resiliency. They deserve nothing less than the best in care, resources and opportunities — not as a charity, but as an investment.

A robust veterans’ benefits system is essential, but we know our veterans and their families will thrive in Oregon only if we develop, nurture and sustain a community wide effort. Good intentions are not enough. Together, we must take the sea of goodwill that exists for our veterans and turn it into measurable results. This Veterans’ Day, I’ll be raising a toast to the new greatest generation of veterans and all those who led the way for us. Please join me in giving thanks to all veterans and those who are still serving around the world. Let us honor them on this day and recommit to partnering together throughout the year to fulfill the sacred trust of caring for all those who have borne the battle. Cameron Smith served three tours in Iraq as a Marine officer and is the Director of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

State Dogs running loose are not the only ones at risk DEAR ABBY: My daughter “Jenny,” her husband, “Bob,” and their three dogs live with my husband and me in our home. We live on a fairly busy road.The dogs used to always be leashed when they were taken out. They have now made a habit of letting the dogs out without leashes. This frightens me. Not only am I concerned about one of the dogs getting hit by a car,but also any legal ramifications if they cause damage to others. I have spoken to my daughter about it, but DEAR nothing has changed. Abby, what can we do to make Jenny and Bob responsible for any damages incurred by t h e i r JEANNE PHILLIPS actions? One last note — one of their dogs WAS hit by a car and had a long, painful recovery with a very expensive vet bill. — OUT OF IDEAS IN CONNECTICUT DEAR OUT OF IDEAS: You have a right to be concerned. Contact your attorney and your insurance broker to find out what the fallout could be for you as homeowners because of your daughter and son-in-law’s laziness and carelessness. Responsible dog owners keep their pets leashed so they won’t be hurt by running into traffic or biting a child or an adult they don’t recognize as a friend. If your daughter and S.I.L.can’t abide by your wishes and behave responsibly, they shouldn’t be living under your roof. P.S. This isn’t just about the dogs and liability; it’s also about respect for you. DEAR ABBY: A couple of years ago, my extended family found a fun, all-inclusive solution to the grumbling (and expense) of preparing the holiday meal. Each family is assigned a portion of the meal they are going to prepare. For fun, it has to be a recipe that has never been tried before so no one can fret that it isn’t made like Grandma used to make it. The person holding the party coordinates kitchen time, but to be honest, everybody enjoys helping each other out, and the cooks spend most of their time chatting. We have tried wonderful variations to the traditional turkey, enjoyed an awesome pie straight from the Renaissance, and learned that we will never again try oyster stuffing. Because the recipes are untried, no one feels bad if the dish isn’t perfect,and we have tried things we were surprised we liked. Most important, we do it together and spend the day laughing, talking and catching up, and no one has to be a slave to the day. Hope this will give other people ideas. — SCOTT IN BALTIMORE DE AR S COTT : So do I, because your family has captured the true spirit of the holiday season, which is too often lost because of the pressure people put on themselves to achieve perfection. DEAR ABBY: My husband and his sister had a falling out after their parents died and haven’t spoken for a few years. My husband is very stubborn and holds grudges. He is very ill now. I have asked him if he wants to tell his sister about his illness, and he says no. I’m not sure how much longer he has left. I am thinking about going against his wishes and calling her in the hopes that they can make peace. Your thoughts? — NOT MUCH TIME LEFT DEAR NOT MUCH TIME LEFT: Depending upon how deep the rift between them is, I do think you should make a confidential phone call and tell her it might be a good idea to call her brother. If she does, the conversation could be healing for both of them. However, if she chooses to ignore the situation, the choice will have been hers, and no harm will have been done. DEAR READERS: Today, Veterans Day, I would like to thank not only all of you who have honorably served our country,but also those men and women who are on active duty for your service as well. I salute each and every one of you. — ABBY

Worker killed by wildcat at sanctuary named

The Associated Press

After traveling to a friend’s medical clinic in the Democratic Republic of the Congo this summer, Ellen and John Heinitz were overjoyed to discover Oakridge Fire Chief Tim Whittaker’s ambulance posting on Craigslist. Though they had initially planned to purchase the ambulance from the fire department and ship it to the Congolese clinic, where medical technology is sparse, but the city council ruled Thursday, Nov. 7, to donate the vehicle to the cause.

Oakridge sends ambulance to African clinic OAKRIDGE (AP) — Call it a miracle or a simple act of kindness; the city of Oakridge has decided it’s time to pay it forward. Two years ago, the city was in financial crisis when it became the subject of an episode of the ABC television show “Secret Millionaire,” which aired this past September. On the show, a Texas doctor and his wife gave a number of donations to the city, including a new ambulance for the Oakridge Fire Department. Now the town has reached out to another cashstrapped community — the Lubumbashi, in Democratic Republic of the Congo. That is where Dr. Yumba “Ysu” Sanga Umbalo runs a medical clinic in desperate need of supplies — namely, an ambulance. “The whole thing just feels like a miracle to me,” said Grants Pass naturopathic doctor Ellen Heinitz, who spent part of her summer at the Congolese clinic in Central Africa. Heinitz was inspired to look for an ambulance on craigslist after receiving an email from Umbalo saying he’d had a dream the night before about buying an ambulance at a used car lot. She knew that Umbalo, who received his medical training in the United States before returning to his home country to treat the ill regardless of their ability to pay, had long envisioned establishing a medical clinic in an old ambulance. The country has no 911 infrastructure, and the Jeep he had formerly used to attend to patients had broken down. On craigslist that day, Heinitz spotted an old sur-

plused ambulance for sale in Oakridge and contacted Interim Fire Chief T im Whittaker with a $1,500 bid. It was the lowest bid Whittaker received. But it was the most convincing. “Our department has received so many gifts throughout the years,” Whittaker said. “It was just really exciting to finally be able to help somebody else out.” But he didn’t stop there. Whittaker put part-time f i r e f i g h t e r - p a ra m e d i c Patrick Frare to work contacting other fire departments and clinics, and they filled the ambulance to its ceiling with a few thousand dollars’ worth of medical supplies, including a set of gurneys and other supplies such as syringes. Then Whittaker and the city formed a secret plan to reject Heinitz’s $1,500 personal check — in favor of donating the ambulance completely. The plan came together at Thursday’s city council meeting, when Heinitz and her husband, John, gave a about presentation Lubumbashi and the clinic, and the council followed with a unanimous vote to donate the ambulance. Mayor Jerry Shorey even making suggested Lubumbashi a sister city of Oakridge. “I’d like to see it become a community project,” he said. “We’ve been very fortunate, and somebody helped us out when we needed it, so it’s time to repay the favor.” John Heinitz teared up at the surprise and the sentiment. “I could just tell that they had received something fantastic, and they wanted to make something fantastic happen for

Lubumbashi,” he said. Ellen Heinitz was equally touched. In a country rife with random acts of violence, she said, “I don’t think they’re used to random acts of kindness.” When they contacted Umbalo by email Thursday night, he responded in surprise as well. “He just can’t believe everything that’s happening,” John Heinitz said. “It’s just beyond him at this point.” The Heinitzes delivered the ambulance to Grants Pass on Friday, where they plan to stock it with Christmas gifts for a Congolese children’s home, which usually doesn’t have gifts for the holiday. They will ship the ambulance in a few weeks and are still collecting medical supplies to send in a separate shipment by the end of the year. The extra $1,500 in their pocket will go to big-ticket medical supplies, such as fetal monitors or blood pressure monitors for the clinic. Mayor Shorey said that while the city of Oakridge is still in the midst of its financial struggles, the situation is significantly brighter than it was a two years ago, and reaching out to other communities is a key step. “It should be a good holiday season — in Africa, and here too,” he said. “There’s always a little joy in giving.” How To Help Dr. Ellen Heinitz is still accepting donations and medical supplies.

Calif. company recalls prepackaged salad, sandwich RICHMOND,Calif.(AP) — More than 90 tons of prepackaged salads and sandwiches by a California catering company are being recalled because a bacterial strain of E.coli has been linked to its products. The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says Sunday that Richmond-based

Glass Onion Catering recalled the salads and sandwich wraps containing cooked chicken and ham after 26 people in three states were sickened with a strand of E. coli. The products were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6, and were shipped to distribution centers in California, Nevada, Arizona,

New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Texas. The Contra Costa Times reports the company has supplied food to Trader Joe’s, Super Fresh Goods and Delish. The FSIS says the bacteria can cause dehydration,bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps.

Court: Blocking in car made traffic stop illegal PORTLAND (AP) — The Oregon Court of Appeals has overturned a Marion County judge’s decision to allow heroin seized from a traffic stop to be used at a man’s trial. Myles Peterson was convicted of delivery of heroin, but the appeals court ruled that a police officer who blocked Peterson’s vehicle with his squad car created an unlawful search. The officer found a Visine bottle filled with heroin. A jury used that evidence to convict Peterson of the drug charge. The court’s decision sends the case back to Marion County Circuit Court Judge Albin W. Norblad, with orders that the seized heroin evidence be suppressed.

The court ruled that the officer who blocked him in

PORTLAND (AP) — The employee killed this weekend by a wildcat at an Oregon animal sanctuary was described as an experienced worker who was comfortable with the animals she cared for. Renee Radziwon, 36, of Portland, died in the Saturday night attack, Deputy Mark Nikolai of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Sunday. No details of the attack or type of animal were released. The sanctuary is located in the suburb of Sherwood, outside Portland. “Her relationship with the cats was amazing,” Jim Caliva, a WildCat Haven Sanctuary board member, told The Oregonian. “She knew exactly what she was doing, but apparently there was a mistake. I don’t know what it could be.” Sheriff ’s Sgt. Robert Wurpes said Saturday that the animal was locked in a cage following the attack. WildCat Haven officials did not immediately respond to a telephone and email messages left by The Associated Press Sunday. Its website describes the facility as a “last hope” for more than 60 wildcats that have been abandoned or abused, including bobcats,

cougars, lynx and tigers. Caliva said Radziwon worked with all the cats at the sanctuary. “They knew her and walked up to the fence,” he told The Oregonian. “She was one of the best people I’ve ever met.” Cheryl and Michael Tuller opened the facility in 2001. Last summer, the sanctuary announced plans to move from its 8-acre facility in Sherwood to an 82-acre site near Silverton and launched a fundraising effort. The Tullers did not set a timetable for the move, The Oregonian reported. The facility is not open to the public, but does provide on-site tours to donors. In February, a 24-year-old woman interning at a California wildcat park was killed by a lion while she was cleaning the cage. The woman’s family called the incident at Cat Haven an accident. In that case, investigators believed the 5-yearold male lion lifted the door of a partially closed feeding cage with its paw and killed Dianna Hanson as she cleaned a bigger enclosure area. Family members said they didn’t believe it was a mauling, but rather a lion’s rough play that turned tragic.

Police in central Oregon warn about rental scams S TATE D I G E S T

BEND (AP) — Police and property managers in central Oregon are warning residents to beware of rental property scams. Bend Police Sgt. Nick Parker said scammers post Craigslist ads that mimic authentic property listings, but alter the rental costs and contact information. They then persuade would-be renters to wire them a deposit or first month’s rent. Area property management firms have been flooded by calls from people seeing ads on Craigslist with two different prices and two different contacts, the Bend Bulletin reports. In at least one case, a resident waited outside the house with a U-Haul, only to find out he had been scammed. Sgt. Parker said the department handled three rental scams through Craigslist in September and October. He said people should always meet in person to see the home, and should never send money without meeting the property owner or manager.

Woman accused of embezzling $20,000 MEDFORD (AP) — A southern Oregon woman faces theft and forgery charges for allegedly embezzling $20,000 from an irrigation district. The Medford Mail Tribune reports 61-year-old Rebecca Lynn Santana of Central Point near Medford was arrested on charges of first-degree aggravated theft and first-degree forgery.

detectives say Santana, a bookkeeper for the Eagle Point Irrigation District, embezzled the money over a two-year period. Irrigation district officials notified law enforcement after discovering discrepancies in account documents. Santana had worked at the district for about 15 years. She was fired from her job after the theft was discovered.

Baker City looks at regulating vicious dogs BAKER CITY (AP) — A Baker City committee formed after a pit bull attacked and killed a 5-yearold has drafted proposals for regulating dangerous and vicious dogs. The Baker City Herald reports the proposals come from a committee being guided by Police Chief Wyn Lohner. The committee was formed after the death of Jordan Ryan on Sept. 27. A grand jury has declined to indict the owner of the pit bull that killed him, finding there was not enough evidence to support criminal charges. The draft gives the City Council a choice about how to go about declare dogs dangerous: One approach would focus on declaring dangerous known pit bull breeds. Another would allow a hearing officer or court to hear and weigh evidence before declaring a dog dangerous, no matter its breed.

EVERYDAY CHEAPSKATE Tp uht teh ye guys in a soundp r o o f booth a n d we ladies h a d to predict how our h u s Mary bands Hunt would answer questions. Of course the hubs and I won. And a mighty fine prize it was: $50 and a blender! We a l r e a d y h a d a blender, so I remember thinking I’d rather have the money. We could have walked away with $85. Catching Bob on reruns of “The Price is Right” brings back fond memories. And whenever some l u c k y c o n te s ta n t w i n s that Showcase — a mishmash of all kinds of stuff to clutter their lives — I can almost hear what the winner is thinking: I’d rather have the money, Bo b !

Every day you should be telling yourself the same thing: I’d rather have the money! Let’s say you see a great new pair of shoes you simply cannot resist. They’re on sale ... this won’t last and it’s such a great deal. No matter how you pay for them (cash, credit, check), it’s a done d e a l . Yo u ’ v e g o t t h e shoes, they’ve got your money. H e r e ’s w h e r e y o u r thinking gets all messed u p . Yo u r c h o i c e s , yo u believe, are to either: 1) have the shoes or 2) not have the shoes. One is a happy outcome, the other n e ga t ive , o r so yo u believe. How would your decision change if the salesman had the shoes in one hand and the $50 cash in the other? Would you take the shoes, or the money? That is exactly the c h o i ce yo u h ave w i t h eve ry p u rc h a se . E i t h e r you get the — fill in the blank — or you get the money. Either you buy the shoes or leave $50 in your bank account. If you could see your lifetime earnings in one big pile of money and how each spending decision diminishes the amount you get to keep, I have a feeling you would take your decision much more seriously. You’d opt to take the money more often than the stuff to clutter your life. The next time you think of spending money —any amount — ask yourself: Do I really want this, or would I rather have the money?

WORLD D I G E S T Automatic spending cuts may bite in 2014 WASHINGTON (AP) — The first year of automatic, across-the-board budget cuts didn’t live up to the dire predictions from the Obama administration and others who warned of sweeping furloughs and big disruptions of government services. The second round just might. Several federal agencies found lots of loose change that helped them through the automatic cuts in the 2013 budget year that ended Sept. 30, allowing them to minimize furloughs and maintain many services. Most of that money, however, has been spent.

Mortar round kills five in Damascus suburb BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian activists say a mortar round hit a Damascus suburb, killing a man and his four children. The British-Based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday that the round landed on the man’s car in the residential area of Jaramana. The Observatory said many more were wounded,including the children’s mother. It was part of a series of salvos that slammed into the neighborhood on Sunday evening. It wasn’t clear who fired the shells. There are frequent clashes in a nearby town between Syrian forces loyal to the government of President Bashar Assad and rebels trying to overthrow him. The Observatory receives its information from a network of activists on the ground.

They’re coming for our trans fat; is soda next? WASHINGTON (AP) — They are among our most personal daily decisions: what to eat or drink. Maybe what to inhale. Now that the government’s banning trans fat, does that mean it’s revving up to take away our choice to consume all sorts of other unhealthy stuff? What about salt? Soda? Cigarettes? Nah. In the tug-of-war between public health and personal freedom, the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to ban trans fats barely rates a ripple.

Storm surges caught Philippines by surprise BY OLIVER TEVES AND CHRISTOPHER BODEEN The Associated Press

MANILA, Philippines — Hours before Typhoon Haiyan hit, Philippine authorities moved 800,000 people to sturdy evacuation centers — churches, schools and public buildings. But the brick-and-mortar structures were simply no match for the jet-force winds and massive walls of waves that swept ashore Friday, devastating cities, towns and villages and killing thousands, including many of those who had huddled in government shelters. The tragedy is another reminder that nature’s fury is sometimes so immense that it can overwhelm even the most diligent preparations. Combine that with a string of unfortunate circumstances — some man-made — and the result is the disaster of epic proportions that the country now faces. “Sometimes, no matter how much and how carefully you prepare, the disaster is just too big,” said Zhang Qiang, an expert on disaster mitigation at Beijing Normal University’s Institute for Social Development and Public Policy. Some officials estimate that 10,000 or more people were killed by Haiyan, washed away by the churning waters that poured in from the Pacific or buried under mountains of trash and rubble. But it may be days or even weeks before the full extent of the destruction is known. As dire forecasts predicted a storm that would be among the most powerful on record, authorities prepared by evacuating people from flimsy homes along the coast to concrete structures farther inland. Similar tactics had worked only weeks earlier when

The Associated Press

An aerial image taken from a Philippine Air Force helicopter shows the devastation caused by typhoon Haiyan in Guiuan, Eastern Samar province, central Philippines on Monday. Authorities said at least 2 million people in 41 provinces had been affected by Friday's disaster and at least 23,000 houses had been damaged or destroyed. powerful Cyclone Phailin struck India’s eastern shore, killing just 25 people as thousands more sheltered in government evacuation centers away from the sea. And Vietnam appeared to have successfully evacuated some 600,000 people before a weakened Haiyan arrived there early Monday. But Philippine officials had not anticipated the 20foot storm surges that swept through Tacloban, capital of the island province of Leyte, which saw the worst of Haiyan’s damage. And while many perished in shelters, others ignored the evacuation and stayed put in their homes, either out of fear their property would fall prey to looters or because they underestimated the risk. “I was talking to the people of Tacloban,” said senior presidential aide Rene Ale-

mendras. “They said ‘we were ready for the wind. We were not ready for the water.’ “We tried our very best to warn everybody,” he said. “But it was really just overwhelming, especially the storm surge.” While the storm surge proved deadly, much of the initial destruction was caused by winds blasting at 147 mph that occasionally blew with speeds of up to 170 mph, howling like jet engines. The Philippines, which sees about 20 typhoons per year, is cursed by its geography. On a string of some 7,000 islands, there are only so many places to evacuate people to, unless they can be flown or ferried to the mainland. The Philippines’ disaster preparation and relief capacities are also hampered by

political factors. It lacks a strong central government and provincial governors have virtual autonomy in dealing with local problems. Contrast this with Vietnam, which sees about a dozen typhoons per year and is similarly poor and densely populated. But a centralized, Communist Party-led government broadcasts clear messages that cannot be ignored by the provinces. Also, because of a clearly defined land mass, unlike the archipelago of the Philippines, it is easy to evacuate people deep inland and to higher ground. “This is not the time to judge,” said Alemendras, the presidential aide. “The national government and the local government all need to work together not to criticize anyone or not to show that one is better than the other.”

Students build house for wounded soldier LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — When Jerral Hancock came home from the Iraq war missing one arm, with another that barely worked and a paralyzed body that was burned all over, he was a hero to this Mojave Desert town that wears its military pride on its sleeve. Soon he was being called upon to use his one remaining hand to cut ribbons and wave to people during parades. Then, after everyone had gone home, Hancock would too. That’s where he would be forgotten by all but his two young children and his parents. That was until the students in Jamie Goodreau’s U.S. history classes learned how Hancock had once gotten stuck in his modest mobile home for half a year — “like being in prison,” he recalls — when his handicapped-accessible van broke down. Or how the hallways of his tiny house were so narrow he couldn’t get his wheelchair through most of them. They would fix that, Goodreau’s students decided, by building Hancock a new home from the ground up. One that would be handicapped accessible. It would be their end-ofthe-year project to honor veterans, something Goodreau’s classes have chosen to do every year for the past 15 years, usually raising $25,000 or $30,000 for veterans charities and a celebratory dinner. This time, however, the stakes would be much higher.

WWII vets reunite as numbers decline DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Paul Young rarely talked about his service during World War II — about the B25 bomber he piloted, about his 57 missions, about the dangers he faced or the fears he overcame. “Some things you just don’t talk about,” he said. But Susan Frymier had a hunch that if she could journey from Fort Wayne, Ind., with her 92-year-old dad for a reunion of his comrades in the 57th Bomb wing, he would open up. She was right: On a private tour at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton, amid fellow veterans of flights over southern Europe and Germany, Young rattled off vivid details of his plane, crewmates, training and some of his most harrowing missions.

Holding on for a one-stop shop Continued from Page A1 refuse to put out an imperfect product and fix the bugs later. And they say their whole system is more complex and has more features than most other states — but that also means more things can go wrong. Some of the complexity they face is inherent in Oregon’s health care environment, which is unusually competitive. Eleven insurers are selling plans through Cover Oregon; some states have just a handful. Oregon also has complicated eligibility rules for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program — known here as the Oregon Health Plan and Healthy Kids. Some of the complications, though, are self-imposed, by the aspirations of the Legislature, the governor and the exchange’s own leadership. When other states delayed or gave up on a concept called “no wrong door,” Oregon held on, and is still holding on. The goal is to give people one portal — the Cover Oregon website — to sign up for insurance, whether they qualify for commercial insurance or Medicaid. In most other states, people who appear to qualify for Medicaid are sent to a separate enrollment process through the state Medicaid office. From the very beginning, Oregon promised a “one-stop shop” for health insurance

and, for better or worse, has refused to waiver. That means the state is seeking an entirely automated process for determining Medicaid eligibility and enrolling. Once state lawmakers approved the exchange in 2011, the first stages of development were done by the Office of Information Services for the Oregon Health Authority and the Department of Human Services. At the same time, as it was overseeing construction of the exchange’s back-end information technology, the information office was also working on a massive project to modernize the internal computer systems for the health authority and human services agency. They were trying to use the same software to determine whether people are eligible for all public-assistance programs — not just Medicaid, but also programs like food stamps and welfare. Carolyn Lawson, chief information officer for the health and human service agencies, said she doesn’t think work on modernizing her department’s own systems slowed down the architecture for Cover Oregon. “There was always the fear that one project would overtake the other in importance, but it was two separate agencies and two separate projects,” Lawson said. “It was a risk, but it did not happen.” Eventually, it might allow someone to fill out a single form and find out automatically whether they’re eligible for a variety of public assistance programs. Over the past year, Cover

Oregon’s risk consultant, Maximus, warned that the project was in danger of missing the Oct. 1 deadline to go live. In March, Maximus suggested that Cover Oregon reorganize its business to make individuals, small businesses and Medicaid distinct so one piece could be delayed if it was holding up the others. Cover Oregon rejected the suggestion, saying it was required to launch everything together on Oct. 1. Oregon’s exchange struggles are far from isolated. The federal website running exchanges for 36 states has been mired with problems, and many states that are running their own exchanges have endured small glitches. But Oregon’s problems stand out, both because of their severity and because the state has held itself out as a leader. There’s still no estimate for when online enrollment will be available, and officials are now urging people who need or want insurance to fill out a paper application or an online PDF and send it in as soon as possible. Applications are being processed by hand — a process that’s likely to take weeks, rather than the minutes that the website promised. On Friday, the state announced plans to hire at least 400 people to process the paper applications. “It is a complex system,” Kitzhaber said at a recent news conference when asked whether the state took on too much complexity.“But I think once we get through this initial rollout phase it’s going to be a real asset for us.”

Whatever isn’t donated the group will purchase with proceeds from hats sold at the Holy Redeemer Holiday Bazaar, held the first Friday and Saturday in December. Postage for the boxes is not typically one of the things that they have to pay for, thanks to donations from retired Marines. “They send us money when they meet together every month. It comes to us to help defray the expenses,” she said. “The postage now is over $15 a box and that’s on the military rate.” Without the military rate, she says the boxes would be just too expensive to send.

volunteers who either work at home or gather Thursdays at the church. One of their newest members, Kathy Walsh, just joined about a month ago and is one of the only regulars who is also a veteran. A Navy nurse in the Vietnam era, Walsh has seen the positive benefits of gifts like these for both active servicemen and women, as well as veterans. “I think one of the most positive aspects of doing this is we reach all the different eras of service,” she said during a break from work on Thursday. “I’ve been in Germany. It’s an Americanization kind of situation at the hospital, but it’s still not home and these kinds of things speak of home.” Swenson says everyone is welcome who wants to come by and help — men, women or children. The sessions typically conclude with a potluck lunch. But the bottom line, Swenson says, is that this is one of the few things that we all can do to help veterans and the soldiers overseas. “I just think this is one way

to say thank you to the men and women who have served in the armed forces over the years,” Swenson said. “We want them to know that we support them wherever they are. And we hope this will make them feel that they are still being thought of at home, that they are not forgotten. “I mean our war goes to the back pages, but their lives don’t.”

Days Creek denies Braves volleyball title BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

REDMOND — Reedsport’s hopes for the first volleyball state title in school history were shot down by a powerful, senior-dominated Days Creek squad Saturday night at Ridgeview High School. The Wolves beat the Braves 25-20, 25-16, 25-18, coming from behind in both the first and third sets to cap an amazing run to end the season. Days Creek won its final 28 matches after two early losses to larger schools, and only lost three sets during that stretch.

Reedsport looked to be in position to take a set twice Saturday night, only to see the Wolves come storming back. The Braves led 15-11 in the first set before a 10-2 run put the momentum on Days Creek’s side of the net. The Wolves used another huge run in the second set, after Mariah McGill had a kill to pull the Braves within 12-11. Days Creek scored nine of the next 11 points. The biggest killer was the third set, though. Reedsport got momentum when Bailey Tymchuk scored eight straight points, giving the Braves a 14-7 advantage.

But just as quick, the tide turned again when Reedsport’s Kayla Doane missed long trying for a kill on a bad pass by the Wolves. Days Creek quickly cut the margin to 14-13 before Gabby White stopped the run with a kill for Reedsport. The Braves built the lead back up to 1714, but Days Creek finished the match on an 11-1 run to celebrate its second title in three years. Days Creek won with a dominant offense and tough defense. Stevielee Jansen had 12 kills, Isabel Golemon added 10 and Juniper McDonald and Jazmyn Herrington added nine and

eight, respectively. “They slammed it down,” said Reedsport coach James Hixenbaugh. “And their quick sets — we struggled with that.” In contrast, White and McGill had six kills each to lead the Braves. The was partly because of Days Creek’s tough front-line defense and partly because of the Wolves’ tough serving, which led to poor passing by the Braves. “They’re a very strong serving team,” Hixenbaugh said. “We just struggled with it.” SEE REEDSPORT | B5

Timbers face uphill challenge ■ Real Salt Lake beats Portland 4-2 in first leg of conference final SANDY, Utah (AP) — One year after making an early playoff exit while struggling to score as the season wound down, it’s a much different story for Real Salt Lake this time. Robbie Findley scored the goahead goal in the first half and had an assist in the second half, leading Real Salt Lake to a 4-2 victory over the Portland Timbers in the first leg of the Western Conference finals on Sunday night. Chris Schuler, Devon Sandoval and Javier Morales also scored for Salt Lake, which will take a two-goal advantage into the second leg of the series on Nov. 24. Salt Lake scored three goals in a 13-minute stretch starting with Schuler’s tally in the 35th that tied it 1-1. “There’s a lot of guys on the team willing to work,” Findley said. “They put the work in early and it showed tonight. We were able to put some goals in the back of the net.” SEE TIMBERS | B4

Heppner knocks off Reedsport THE WORLD Reedsport’s football season ended Saturday in a 48-8 loss to Heppner in the Class 2A playoffs. “That was a good football team,” said Reedsport coach Shane Nelson. “They’re just tough farm kids. I’d love to see them play Gold Beach. They were tough at every position.” The Mustangs, who are unbeaten, jumped out to a 48-0 lead through three quarters. The loss capped Reedsport’s best season in a decade. The Braves went 7-2 in the regular season and finished second in the hybrid Sunset Conference. “It was a great season,” Nelson said. “We had a tremendous amount of success. It’s a great building block.” Cameron Winfield scored Reedsport’s touchdown on a 6-yard pass from Haden Sams. Joey Herr added the two-point conversion. The Braves had a few drives earlier in the game that stalled, which was because of the Mustangs, Nelson said. “We couldn’t get anybody open,” he said. “Their coverage was incredible. “Running the ball, we’d get the edge and they’d tackle so well. They didn’t miss any tackles.” Meanwhile, in another Class 2A game, Grant Union topped Nestucca 49-20. That means Gold Beach travels to John Day to face Grant Union in the quarterfinals. The only other South Coast team still alive in the playoffs, North Bend, visits Scappoose on Friday in the Class 4A quarterfinals.

North Bend’s girls soccer team celebrates a win over Klamath Union after going into overtime and a penalty kick shootout on Saturday.

North Bend girls win soccer shootout Bulldogs will travel to La Grande for state semifinals Tuesday ■

BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

NORTH BEND — Knowing a penalty kick shootout was a possibility in the playoffs, North Bend girls soccer coach Dustin Hood began having his team practice the scenario the past few weeks. It turned out the practice was great for goalkeeper Kadie Forderer, who had to face the tries of her teammates every day. After the Bulldogs and Klamath Union were knotted at 1-all through regulation and two 10-

minute overtime periods in their Class 4A quarterfinal match Saturday, Forderer lined up to face the Pelicans in the shootout. She didn’t allow a single goal, and North Bend won the match when senior Jordyn Johnson was true on her attempt, the only goal in the shootout. “I’m so excited,” said Johnson, who was fourth in North Bend’s lineup for the shootout — each team got five tries. “We’ve worked so hard for this.” The victory put North Bend into the semifinals for the first time in school history. The Bulldogs visit La Grande on Tuesday for a 1 p.m. match with a berth in the state title game on the line. They can thank Forderer, who

saved a penalty kick in the first half and two more in the shootout. As it turned out, North Bend needed the saves, because the Bulldogs weren’t having any luck against Klamath Union goalkeeper Emma Niskanen. Madison Rice of the Pelicans started the shootout by clanking her attempt off the right post, but North Bend’s Gabby Hobson shot high of the goal on her try. Forderer deflected Bailey Pimentel’s attempt away and North Bend’s Damie Zomerschoe missed to the left. Forderer then blocked the attempt of Beckie Wyse, but Niskanen did the same for the try by Emma Powley. In the fourth round, Klamath

Union’s Jessica Bocchi missed to the right side of the net. That set up Johnson, later described by North Bend coach Dustin Hood as “money.” She blasted her shot past Niskanen into the lower left portion of the net. “That’s the spot I practice,” Johnson said. Forderer admitted she was relieved when Johnson scored. “I’m so glad Jordyn nailed hers,” she said. “That was intense.” When Klamath Union’s Tori Dykstra pulled her shot to the left of the net, the North Bend players and their huge crowd celebrated the big win.

North Bend boys reach Class 4A semifinals BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

NORTH BEND — Saturday, the North Bend boys soccer team made history. With a 4-1 throttling of Cottage Grove, the Bulldogs are headed to the state semifinals for only the second time in school history. They’ll travel to Henley on Tuesday for their chance at the finals, facing the Hornets at 3 p.m. The last time North Bend made it to the semifinals was in 1996, well before current head coach Tom Zomerschoe took over the program. With the way his team dominated every aspect against the Lions, he couldn’t find anything to complain about. “I was happily surprised,” Zomerschoe said. “We have been getting better every game here lately. The boys are tremendously focused and everybody did their job.” North Bend did all of its scoring in the first half before putting it in cruise control and putting in some of its reserves in the second half.

North Bend’s River Morse dribbles past Cottage Grove’s Sergio Gomez during the playoff game Saturday. The Bulldogs won 4-1 and advance to the Class 4A semifinals.

the playoffs after he broke his collarbone at practice earlier in the season. Saturday was his first goal coming back and while he usually plays center-midfield,

Jackson played up because of a lingering ankle issue. Considering the circumstances, his first goal couldn’t have come at a better time. “I knew it was gonna give us a good start and set the tone for the game,” Jackson said. “Especially since we’re a young team and we’re going so far. We play so good as a team. It’s exciting.” Just 195 seconds after Jackson’s goal, Ian Bream took a free kick from just over 25 yards out that want directly through the Cottage Grove keeper’s arms and slipped into the back of the net. And the scoring just kept coming. The crowd at Vic Adams field got some little theatrics on the next goal when Stewart Lyons — faced away from the goal toward the sidelines — did a standing bicycle kick, floating a ball over his head to forward Luca Rossi standing behind him, waiting to guide the pass into the back of the net with his forehead.

Sports Blazers complete back-to-back wins SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Even with standout point guard Damian Lillard experiencing a rare off game, the Portland Trail Blazers still had enough offense to beat the Sacramento Kings. LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and 14 rebounds, Wesley Matthews scored 21 points, and the Blazers beat the Kings 96-85 on Saturday night for their fourth win in five games. Lillard, last year’s rookie of the year, had four points on 1-of-15 shooting. He did contribute six rebounds and six assists. “It will happen occasionally, it was one of those nights when the shots didn’t go in,” said Lillard, who scored 22 points in Friday’s win at home against the Kings. “We have a deeper team this year and guys can pick up the slack. That’s what makes us a better team.” Portland’s offense flowed well enough that it seemed at times that Lillard’s scoring wasn’t even missed. The Blazers continued their early-season trend of shooting well from long distance, making 9 of 20 attempts from 3-point range and only had 12 turnovers. One of those players making shots was Matthews, who led the Blazers in the third quarter. Matthews made three 3s and had 19 of his 21 points in the second half. “Wes is playing at a high energy, particularly on offense,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “He’s shooting the ball well and picking up where he left off last year before he got hurt.” Robin Lopez had 12 points and 14 rebounds and Nicolas Batum also scored 12 points to help the Blazers sweep the home-and-home series with the Kings. Portland beat the Kings at home, 104-91 on Friday night. It’s been a troubling start

to the season for the Kings, who have lost five straight since beating Denver in the season-opener. The statistic that stood out in the latest loss was getting outrebounded by the Blazers 52-33. “It’s not about back-tobacks. In this league you can’t be too inconsistent; you need to be a pro for 48 minutes,” King guard Greivis Vasquez said. “You’ve got to hate losing, You can’t accept losing.” DeMarcus Cousins had 15 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter and also grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Kings. Cousins had 35 points in Friday night’s game in Portland. Ben McLemore scored 13 points and Isaiah Thomas had 12 points for the Kings, who had only 54 points through three quarters before outscoring Portland 31-27 in the fourth. Kings rookie head coach Michael Malone has bemoaned the team’s lack of defensive effort this season and pointed to rebounding as a key element in yet another loss. Malone said after the game that lineup changes could take place for Wednesday’s game against Brooklyn. “I’m embarrassed. Every night it’s the same thing,” Malone said. “We finally get a night where we defend at a decent level, but we can’t rebound. We got outworked on the glass. I think we’ve got a lot of guys who just care about themselves on this team. Changes will be made before we play on Wednesday. Portland had a 22-point lead early in the fourth quarter. However, Sacramento rallied as a three-point play by Cousins and a fast-break layup by Jimmer Fredette cut the deficit to 85-77 with 4:29 remaining.

CORVALLIS (AP) — Sterling Smith says Coppin State’s first victory against a Pac-12 team was only a start. Smith had a career-high 21 points and Coppin State defeated Oregon State 78-73 on Sunday to snap a streak of 16 losses to Pac-12 foes. “Give us a couple more weeks to reach our potential,” the sophomore guard said. The Eagles, who led by as many as 13 points, were playing without leading scorer Michael Murray because of a broken bone in his right hand. He led Coppin State with 12.4 points and 8.9 rebounds last season. “Mike was definitely one of our top scorers and rebounders, and we’re missing him now,” Smith said. “It’s tough, but somebody has to step up and fill his shoes.” Roberto Nelson had a career-high 36 points for the Beavers, who were playing their season opener. The junior guard has scored in double figures in 18 straight games dating back to last season. Nelson hit a layup with 5:02 left to pull the Beavers within 62-61, but the Eagles wouldn’t let them closer. Nelson again made a layup that narrowed the lead to 7068 with 1:10 left. Smith answered with a 3-pointer for Coppin State to stifle the rally. Nelson was disappointed with his play, saying he should have distributed the ball more. But coach Craig Robinson said Oregon State was never able to follow its game plan to go inside early. “We got off to a mediocre start, and I don’t think it was effort at all,” Robinson said. The Beavers were without Devon Collier and Eric Moreland, who are serving suspensions for violating team rules. Moreland’s suspension

Oregon State’s Roberto Nelson flies to the basket during Sunday’s loss to Coppin State. Nelson scored a career-best 36 points. was for 14 regular season games while Collier’s suspension was only for one, so he’ll return Wednesday against Portland. Robinson has never given the reason for the discipline. Moreland averaged 9.4 points and 10.6 rebounds last season while Collier averaged 12.6 points and six rebounds. Coppin State was coming off an 83-64 loss at California in their season opener on Friday. Both teams struggled offensively to start, and the score was knotted at 10 midway through the first half. Coppin State went ahead 2213 following three straight 3pointers from Andre Armstrong, Christian Kessee and Arnold Fripp.

The Eagles stretched the lead to 31-20 on Smith’s layup with 2:05 to go in the half and went into the break ahead 36-26. The Beavers fought to make up ground in the second half. Nelson hit a layup and a long 3-pointer to close the gap to 39-36 for the Beavers with 15:31 left in the game. Olaf Schaftenaar’s 3pointer for the Beavers got them as close as 45-42, but Fripp answered with a jumper and his own 3 to extend Coppin State’s lead to 50-42. The Beavers pulled within 57-55 on Nelson’s 3-pointer with 8:13 to go, but this time it was Smith who scored on a layup and a 3 to keep the Eagles in front.

Sports U.S. women wrap up unbeaten year THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GOLF ORLANDO, Fla. — Kirk earns second win of Sydney Leroux scored twice his PGA Tour career in the first half and the U.S. women’s soccer team completed its sixth undefeated year with a 4-1 exhibition victory over Brazil on Sunday at the Citrus Bowl. Abby Wambach also scored in the first half, Erika Tymrak added a goal, and goalkeeper Hope Solo made a series of diving saves in the second half. The U.S. finished the year 13-0-3. Leroux opened the scoring in the 15th minute, and Wambach scored on a penalty kick in the 17th. Rosana cut it to 2-1 in the 25th, and Leroux added her second in the 36th. Tymrak scored in the 76th.

Jacksonville running back Jordan Todman scores a touchdown on a 5-yard run against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Jaguars beat Titans for first win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS At some point, even if they won’t admit it, Gus Bradley and his Jacksonville Jaguars must have wondered if a victory would come this season. They can stop wondering. Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman each ran for a touchdown, and the Jaguars held off the Tennessee Titans 29-27 Sunday. The Jaguars (1-8) scored the most points in a game this season for first-year coach Bradley. They never trailed and forced four turnovers they turned into 17 points. “What I’m excited about is that we improved in many areas,” Bradley said. “On my call sheet I was writing down things that were really good that were happening during the game. They just kept piling up. I thought, ‘this is how it feels.”’ Feels pretty good, doesn’t it? “It’s definitely a great feeling,” Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said. “Hopefully we can build on this.” Baltimore looks to build on its thrilling 20-17 overtime win against Cincinnati, which came only after the defending Super Bowl champions blew a 17-0 lead and allowed a 51-yard desperation TD pass on the final play of regulation. Justin Tucker made a 46yard field goal to win it. The Ravens (45) broke a three-game slide and are back in the AFC North race. Jaguars 29, Titans 27: At Nashville, the Titans scored twice in the final 4:15, the last on a 14-yard TD pass by Ryan Fitzpatrick to Delanie Walker with 40 seconds left. But Johnathan Cyprien recovered the onside kick to seal the victory. On a day the Titans (4-5) held a moment of silence for late owner Bud Adams, they lost quarterback Jake Locker to an injured right foot that had him on crutches and in a walking boot in the second half. Ravens 20, Bengals 17, OT: At Baltimore, the Ravens moved into a second-place tie in the division, one game behind Cincinnati (6-4) in the loss column. It was the defending Super Bowl champions’ first victory since Oct. 6. The Bengals have lost two straight in overtime. Cincinnati pulled even when A.J. Green caught the desperation pass from

NFL Recap

BOYS Top four seeds all are out From Page B1 Rossi came back and scored again on a penalty kick with 15:13 left in the first half. Rossi has been the Bulldogs most vital scoring threat lately. He scored against every team in the Far West League and had a hat trick in North Bend’s 7-2 play-in win over Scappoose. While he might be a foreign exchange student from Brazil here just this year at North Bend, the importance of getting to the state semifinals is not lost on him. “We made history today. It’s pretty awesome,” Rossi said. “It’s good to help my teammates in important games like this. I’m a forward so that’s my job to score. It’s good to know I did my job.” Master Phumpihat Thithong scored the Lions’ goal in the second half. North Bend’s defense was typically stout — the Bulldogs gave up two goals in their final five league games.

Andy Dalton. Green positioned himself behind the pack and caught the ball after it flicked off the hand of Ravens safety James Ihedigbo, who earlier had the first two interceptions of his career. Panthers 10, 49ers 9: Drayton Florence’s interception in the final minute sealed the fifth successive win for visiting Carolina and snapped San Francisco’s five-game winning streak. Graham Gano kicked a 53-yard field goal with 10:05 remaining that held up for the Panthers (6-3), who had six sacks and allowed only 151 yards to the Niners (6-3). Phil Dawson kicked a season-best 52-yard field goal among his three for the 49ers, who lost tight end Vernon Davis and rookie safety Eric Reid to concussions. Broncos 28, Chargers 20: At San Diego, Peyton Manning threw for 330 yards and four touchdowns, three to Demaryius Thomas, as he efficiently led the Broncos in their first game since coach John Fox had heart surgery. With interim coach Jack Del Rio in charge, Manning kept the Broncos (8-1) rolling. He threw touchdown passes of 11, 7 and 34 yards to Thomas on consecutive drives spanning the second and third quarters. Manning said he also would have an MRI on his leg today. Manning has thrown for 3,249 yards and 33 touchdowns in nine games. Seahawks 33, Falcons 10: At Atlanta, Russell Wilson threw a pair of touchdowns passes and Marshawn Lynch ran for 145 yards. The NFC Westleading Seahawks (9-1) blew out a team that not so long ago was talking Super Bowl, but now is two defeats away from its first losing season since 2007. Seattle outgained Atlanta (2-7) 490 yards to 226. Lions 21, Bears 19: Calvin Johnson had two second-half touchdown receptions, Reggie Bush rushed for 105 yards and the visiting Lions (6-3) took over first place in the NFC North by completing a season sweep of the Bears (5-4). Johnson broke Herman Moore’s franchise record with his 63rd career touchdown reception with 2:22 to go, giving the Lions a 21-13 lead with a 14yard grab. He also had a tiebreaking 4yard TD reception in the third quarter. Rams 38, Colts 8: At Indianapolis, Tavon Austin returned one punt 98 yards for a touchdown, caught TD passes of 57 and 81 yards and almost singlehandedly ended the Rams’ three-game

Sweeper James Jordan did a great job “keeping everything tight down” through the defense and attributes his communication skills as to why his unit was so successful Saturday. “Compliments. We just boosts everyone confidence and they keep doing well,” Jordan said. “We know what each other are gonna do and our weaknesses and strengths.” Bream, the Far West League’s Most Valuable Player and the primary setpiece kicker for the Bulldogs, got hit in the head in the waning moments of the game and had to be helped off the field. Zomerschoe said he thinks Bream may have suffered a concussion, which would be awful for North Bend considering he wouldn’t be able to play in the semis. With Bream potentially out, more players will need to fall in line and step up, something Zomerschoe has been seeing lately from his team. “The great thing about this team is it feels like everybody is stepping up,” Zomerschoe said. “I’m extremely happy with the effort and the focus of these kids.” If North Bend wins at

losing streak. The touchdown catches were the only receptions Austin had, and St. Louis (4-6) won for the first time since former Oregon star Kellen Clemens replaced the injured Sam Bradford. Eagles 27, Packers 13: With Aaron Rodgers sidelined by a left collarbone injury, host Green Bay had no one to match Philadelphia’s Nick Foles. Foles connected with DeSean Jackson for a 55-yard score in the first half. Touchdown passes to Riley Cooper from 45 and 32 yards highlighted a 17point second half for the up-tempo Eagles. Foles had a record-tying seven TD passes in a win at Oakland last week. Saints 49, Cowboys 17: At New Orleans, Drew Brees completed 34 of 41 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns. The Saints (7-2) set an NFL record with 40 first downs and a franchise-record with 625 total yards. Brees connected with Kenny Stills on a 52-yard touchdown pass, with Marques Colston on a 22-yarder, with Pierre Thomas for a 1-yard score and with Darren Sproles for a 28-yarder. Cardinals 27, Texans 24: Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes and the host Cardinals sent the Texans to their franchise-record seventh consecutive loss. Arizona (5-4) scored on the game’s first play when John Abraham knocked the ball out of Case Keenum’s arm and Matt Shaughnessy returned it 6 yards for a touchdown. Giants 24, Raiders 20: Terrell Thomas returned an interception 65 yards to set up a go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run by fellow comebacker Andre Brown, and the host Giants won their third straight. The error-prone Giants (3-6) handed the Raiders (3-6) their first 17 points on first-half turnovers. But they got 115 yards rushing by Brown in his first game this season — he’s had two broken left legs the last two years — and another big defensive game to keep their season alive. Steelers 23, Bills 10: At Pittsburgh, a week after giving up 610 yards and 55 points in a loss to New England, the Steelers (3-6) held the Bills (3-7) to 227 total yards, more than one-third coming on a meaningless drive in the final minutes. Ben Roethlisberger passed for 204 yards and a touchdown, Le’Veon Bell added 52 yards rushing and the Steelers snapped a two-game losing streak.

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. — Chris Kirk survived a wild back nine to win the McGladrey Classic, thanks to one big mistake by Briny Baird that kept him winless in 365 starts on the PGA Tour. Kirk closed with a 4under 66 for his second career win, though he received plenty of help from Baird. They were tied for the lead playing the 18th hole at Sea Island when Baird drove into a fairway bunker, the ball below his feet. He topped a 4-iron that went about 90 yards and into a hazard. Kirk, who finished at 14under 266, only had to make par for a one-shot win over Baird (67) and Tim Clark (62). The victory sends Kirk to the Masters for the first time.

Masters champion wins OLYMPICS in return to Australia German voters choose GOLD COAST, Australia against 2022 Olympic bid — Masters champion Adam FRANKFURT, Germany — Voters rejected plans for Munich to bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics, an embarrassing setback for newly elected International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach of Germany. Early results from the ballot gave Olympic opponents a majority. Olympic planners needed to have a majority “yes” vote in all four Bavarian communities that went to the polls and were planned as the hubs of the games, including Munich itself and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the planned site for the glamorous Alpine events.

Scott won the storm-delayed Australian PGA in his first home event since winning at Augusta National, beating American Rickie Fowler by four strokes. Scott finished with a 4under 67 at Royal Pines for a 14-under 270 total. Fowler shot 68. Scott and Fowler marked their balls on the 12th fairway after a severe storm warning suspended play with Scott holding a one-shot lead. When Scott returned, his iron shot from the fairway nearly holed out for an albatross and he made the 1-foot eagle putt.

Woods finishes third in tournament at Turkey

PRO BASKETBALL ANTALAYA, Turkey — Charlotte coach has two France’s Victor Dubuisson stents placed in heart won the inaugural Turkish CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Bobcats say head coach Steve Clifford will coach tonight against the Atlanta Hawks after having two stents placed in his heart Friday. The Bobcats’ first-year head coach checked himself into a Charlotte hospital with chest pains Thursday night. He was hospitalized overnight and doctors performed the procedure the following day. Associate head coach Patrick Ewing filled in as head coach against the New York Knicks on Friday night, a game the Bobcats lost 10191 to fall to 3-3. The 52-year-old Clifford joined the Bobcats during this offseason, replacing Mike Dunlap, who was fired after one season.

TIMBERS

sent a free kick over the defensive wall and threaded the ball inside the far post, denying Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando any chance to get to it in time. Schuler tied it 21 minutes later as Morales lobbed a corner kick high into the air toward the defender. Schuler outjumped everyone around him to snag the ball and headed it past Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. A defensive mistake helped Salt Lake take the lead in the 41st. Mamadou Danso made an errant back pass under pressure from Findley and the ball squirted loose. Findley sprinted past Danso to collect the ball and easily flicked it around Ricketts as he came off the line. In the second half, Findley latched onto a through ball and sent a cross into Sandoval, who quickly put it home for his first career playoff goal in the 48th. Morales made it 4-1 in the 82nd. Ricketts made an impressive save moments earlier, leaping in the air and denying a header from Luis Gil at the far post. It led to a corner kick and Joao Plata fed the ball to Morales on a run to the far post. He lunged forward and headed the ball past Ricketts in the middle of the net. We got punished in certain circumstances,” Portland defender Jack Jewsbury said. “They’re a very good team. If you’re not on your game, they’re going to punish you.”

Second leg will be Sunday From Page B1 The most impressive part of the scoring flurry for Salt Lake is that it happened without leading scorer Alvaro Saborio, who sat out after sustaining a right hip flexor injury. “It says we’re a deep team,” RSL coach Jason Kreis said. “It says we have a ton of guys who have contributed this year in really meaningful matches and in really meaningful ways. That puts us in a place now where we haven’t been typically. We can plug and play.” Will Johnson put the Timbers on the scoreboard in the 14th minute and Frederic Piquionne closed the scoring in stoppage time. Salt Lake extended its unbeaten streak over Portland to nine games. The Timbers have not beaten RSL since the first meeting in the series on April 30, 2011. The T imbers’ loss snapped a 10 game unbeaten streak, stretching back to a 42 loss to Salt Lake on Aug. 30. “It’s not the end of the world,” Johnson said. “We’ll be OK. We got to fix some things. It is what it is. We’re two goals down, but we’re not out of it yet. We���ll fight for 90 minutes.” On Johnson’s opening goal, the Timbers’ midfielder

UCLA freshman pulls double duty THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TUCSON, Ariz. — UCLA’s coaches had planned all along to use Myles Jack on offense sometime. They got around to it Saturday night with spectacular results. The freshman linebacker rushed for 120 yards on his first six carries of the season, including a 66-yard touchdown that helped the 16thranked Bruins beat Arizona 31-26 Saturday night. “I thought they were jokin’ about it the whole year,” Jack said, “but they finally just threw me back there and I just followed my blockers and everything worked out.” On defense, Jack had eight tackles and recovered Ka’Deem Carey’s fumble in the UCLA end zone as the Bruins won in Tucson for the first time since 2003. And make no mistake about it, Jack considers himself a defensive player. “I like to hit people,” he said, “rather than be hit. That’s more my mentality, but whatever the team wants me to do, I’m with it.” Brett Hundley passed for two touchdowns and ran for another as UCLA (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) stayed a game behind first-place Arizona State in the Pac-12 South. Carey rushed for 149 yards on 28 carries for the Wildcats (6-3, 3-3), running his school-

Hundley threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Shaq Evans on UCLA’s first offensive play. Evans also had a 4yard scoring catch. Arizona’s B.J. Denker had a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Nate Phillips. USC 62, Cal 28: Nelson Agholor had two of Southern California’s NCAA-record tying three punt returns for touchdowns and Javorius Allen scored three times to

help the Trojans (7-3, 4-2) beat California (1-9, 0-7) for the 10th straight time. Agholor started the scoring for USC (7-3, 4-2 Pac-12) with a 75-yard return and added a 93-yarder late in the second quarter to help USC win for the fourth time in five games under interim coach Ed Orgeron. Josh Shaw also returned a blocked punt 14 yards for a score earlier in the second quarter for the Trojans. Arizona State 20, Utah 19: Taylor Kelly ran for a touchdown and threw for

another in the fourth quarter and No. 23 Arizona State (72, 5-1) came from behind to beat Utah (4-5, 1-5). Sun Devils All-America defensive tackle Will Sutton sealed the victory with an interception at the 25. Kelly finished 19-for-31 passing for 144 yards and Marion Grice rushed 20 times for 136 yards. Grice busted through the Utah line and rumbled 38 yards to set up Kelly’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Richard Smith with 2:37 to play to make it 20-19. 59, Washington Colorado 7: Keith Price threw for two touchdowns and ran for one as part of a huge first half where Washington (6-3, 3-3) racked up nearly 500 yards on offense, and the Huskies routed Colorado (3-6, 0-6) to become bowl eligible for the fourth straight season. Portland St 38, Idaho St 31: DJ Adams rushed for 201 yards and two touchdowns as Portland State defeated Idaho State. Collin Ramirez added 117 yards and two touchdowns for the Vikings (6-4, 3-3 Big Sky). Portland State finished with 395 yards rushing and 539 yards total offense. Portland State led 28-7 after Adams’ first touchdown, on an 11-yard run, with 13:17 remaining in the first half.

Ducks fall to sixth after Thursday loss BY RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press

Florida State took firm hold of second place in the BCS standings behind topranked Alabama and grabbed the inside track to the national championship game. The Seminoles were second last week, but seemed likely to get passed by Oregon if the Ducks could have remained unbeaten. Stanford, however, handed Oregon its first loss of the season Thursday night and Florida State benefited. The Seminoles (.9619) are a solid second in the USA Today coaches’ poll and Harris poll, and second in the computer rankings that make up the final third of a BCS average. Ohio State (.8926) is third in the polls but fourth in the computers. The Buckeyes are closer to fourth-place Stanford (.8689) than Florida State. Unbeaten Baylor (.8618) is fifth, not far behind the Cardinal (.8689). But Florida State and Alabama appear headed for a BCS championship game matchup if they can avoid being upset. “Just win,” BCS analyst Jerry Palm of CBS.com said about Florida State. “They control their own destiny now. Just win.” Florida State’s 51-14 victory against Clemson in the

middle of October sent the Seminoles surging past Ohio State in the polls. The Buckeyes haven’t had a chance to change the momentum because they haven’t played ranked opponents since beating Wisconsin and Northwestern in back-to-back weeks in late September and early October. “Ohio State never had a game where they could get some juice with the voters, get the voters’ attention.” Palm said. Palm said that it’s likely if Alabama or Florida State — or both — stumble it would be Ohio State or Baylor moving into the top two spots and not one-loss Stanford. “The problem is Baylor and Ohio State are ahead of Stanford in the polls and eventually the BCS standings will reflect that,” he said. Unbeaten Fresno State of the Mountain West moved up to No. 14. The Bulldogs need a top-12 finish to secure the so-called BCS buster bid as an automatic qualifier from a non-AQ conference. They also need to be the highest rated non-AQ champion. Undefeated Northern Illinois of the Mid-American Conference is 15th and trying to be a BCS Buster for the second straight season. Neither team can afford a loss, but Palm said attrition along should get Fresno State and NIU into the final top-12 if they can win out.

From Page B1 “What a great game,” said Hood. “And how amazing was Kadie?” That was a common thought among both teams. “She’s phenomenal,” said Johnson. “Words can’t express how much we love her.” Dykstra also was impressed. “She was good,” the Klamath Union sophomore said. Forderer was in a penalty kick shootout for the first time in her high school career. Klamath Union was in its fifth such match this year, since the Pelicans are in a league that doesn’t allow ties. But all that experience wasn’t enough for Klamath Union. Dykstra gave Klamath Union a chance in the match with a dramatic goal in the second half. North Bend’s Brianna Cole scored midway through the first half on an assist by

Katie Farlow, trapping the ball with her legs and then putting it past Niskanen. The score stayed 1-0 until Dykstra made a run down the right sideline. She was heavily guarded most of the way down the sideline, but then got free and blasted a higharching shot from the wing that barely got over Forderer

and into the net with 12:59 to go in regulation. “I normally never take those shots,” said Dykstra. “I wanted to do it for my team.” Neither team got a particular good chance in the overtime periods, setting up the dramatic shootout. In the end, North Bend was looking ahead to the long

trip to La Grande, which eliminated BrookingsHarbor 2-0 on Saturday. The Tigers are unbeaten and have given up just three goals in 15 matches. “We’re going to play our hearts out,” said Johnson. “Our focus is we’ve worked to hard to stop. We’re just going to give it everything we can.”

team. Both had strong matches Saturday. Hixenbaugh finished with 16 assists and shared the lead in digs for the Braves with Ruby Cardoso with 11 each. Tymchuk had nine digs, including several fabulous efforts to keep Days Creek hits off the floor. Doane had four stuff blocks. James Hixenbaugh said he wasn’t disappointed with his team’s effort. “I thought we played hard,” he said. “I told them to keep playing hard. “I’m very pleased with

what we did.” Reedsport earned a trophy at state for the fourth straight year. When the current seniors were freshmen, the Braves beat the Wolves in the tournament. “I was thinking four years from now, when they’re all seniors, they’re going to be a very strong team,” James Hixenbaugh recalled. Turns out, he was right. “Days Creek is a very good team and Ron Dunn does a good job with them,” he said. The Wolves have nine

seniors. Reedsport also had a strong group with six seniors, which made the aftermath of the match emotional, he said. “They’re more sad (than disappointed),” he said. “My seniors are done. The younger kids are kind of sad for losing the seniors.” But at some point, the Braves will look back on a year that included the best finish in school history and a fourth straight Sunset Conference title. “It was a great season,” James Hixenbaugh said.

Eastern Oregon stunned Southern Oregon 38-37 in Ashland on Saturday, scoring on a 26-yard halfback pass from Jace Billingsly to Justin Hernandez with 1:53 to go. The Raiders, who learned earlier in the day that they couldn’t earn the Frontier Conference’s automatic bid to the NAIA playoffs, saw their hopes for an at-large bid damaged when Eastern Oregon rallied from a 13point deficit to start the fourth quarter. Eastern Oregon improved to 5-5 overall and 5-4 in conference play, while Southern Oregon fell to 6-4, 6-3 in league. SOU quarterback Austin Dodge threw for 355 yards, but also was intercepted three times. Eastern Oregon’s Dominique Blackman had a season-best 336 passing yards and also rushed for 78 yards. Coquille graduate Heston Altenbach had five tackles, including one for a loss, and also had an incomplete pass on an extra point attempt for Southern Oregon. Western Oregon 32, Central Washington 28: Coquille graduate Joe Harris rushed for 141 yards as the Wolves improved to 6-4

overall and 6-3 in the Great Athletic Northwest Conference with the home win on Senior Day. Ryan Bergman had four touchdown passes for Western Oregon, which moved into a tie for second place with Central Washington by beating the Wildcats for just the second time in the last 20 meetings. Linfield 79, Puget Sound 3: The Wildcats scored touchdowns on their first seven possessions and improved to 8-0 and 5-0 in the Northwest Conference, wrapping up at least a share of the league title. Josh Yoder had two passing touchdowns and rushed for two more for the secondranked Wildcats, who trail only defending champion Mount Union in the NCAA Division III standings. Willamette 21, Pacific 17: The Bearcats rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter as quarterback Josh Dean threw a pair of touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score to Taylor Wyman with 5:58 to go. Willamette improved to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the Northwest Conference. Pacific fell to 7-2, 3-2 in league. The Boxers entered the week ranked No. 25.

Johnson takes big lead into NASCAR finale AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Matt Kenseth had one of those rare seasons in which everything seemed to go right every time he got behind the wheel of his car. Until the one day he couldn’t afford for anything to go wrong. Kenseth had one of his poorest performances of the season Sunday, finishing 23rd at Phoenix International Raceway to allow Jimmie Johnson to seize control of the championship race. Johnson, who started the day up seven points in the standings, finished third behind Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne to pad his lead to 28 points. The five-time champion goes to next Sunday’s season finale at Homestead needing to finish 23rd or better to win the title. Kenseth, who won his only championship 10 years ago, gave what sounded like a concession speech following his disappointing day. “Of course I’m disappointed — we go there basically without a shot to win,” Kenseth said. “On the other hand, I couldn’t be happier and more proud of my team and, man, this has been the best year of my racing career. We hoped to go down to Homestead and race for it on performance. On the other hand, I’m extremely happy and really, really proud of my team. “There’s not a car out here I’d rather be driving. We’ve had just an amazing, incredible season and we’ve still got one week left. So I’m really

thankful for them putting me in a car and everybody who has given me this opportunity.” Johnson, who had a mechanical failure in last year’s season finale and finished 36th, wasn’t ready to claim the title following his workmanlike performance at Phoenix. “We’re heading into Homestead in the position we want to be in,” Johnson said. “I’ll have to go down there and run 400 miles. It’s far from over. You’ve got to finish that race. Although we have a nice cushion, we still have to go down there and take care of business.” Harvick won at Phoenix for the second consecutive year, capitalizing when Carl Edwards ran out of gas coming to the white flag. But all eyes were on Kenseth, who struggled mightily for the first time in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and for one of the few times this season. Kenseth had only finished lower than 23rd four times this entire season, and three were related to either engine failure or a crash. But his car was off from the very start, and he struggled to even tell crew chief Jason Ratcliff what adjustments to make on a Toyota he described at one point as “just not drivable.” “I don’t even know what to tell you to fix, to be honest,” Kenseth radioed. “I am so aero tight. So aero tight.” Figuring track position and clean air was the only fix, Ratcliff opted for a strategy

It was his fourth win of the year. of having Kenseth do the opposite of other drivers: If they pitted, Kenseth did not, and vice versa. It worked as Kenseth cracked the top 10, but then backfired badly on a pit stop at the worst possible time. Moments after contact

between Johnson and Carl Edwards knocked Johnson out of the groove and forced him to save his Chevrolet from wrecking, a caution was called for Josh Wise’s spin. The Joe Gibbs Racing crew botched the pit stop, changing strategy mid-stop,

and Kenseth compounded the problem by running over his air hose. His car had to be backed up before it could be serviced. It dropped him to 30th, two laps down, and he restarted behind Johnson at the one opportunity he’d had to make up some ground. “I called left sides trying to get some track position, and I looked up and there weren’t many cars coming down pit road, so I thought we might as well put four on it,” Ratcliff said. “But when I called four, those guys had left-side tires in their hands and half of them went over the wall and had to come back to get the right-side tires. It’s just a mess. “I let the guys down. They do a great job on pit road and I made them look bad with the mix-up.” Johnson, stressed over the incident with Edwards, knew when he saw Kenseth behind him after the caution that he was in great shape. “I was starting to get worried at that point in time, but seemed shortly thereafter we left pit road and (Kenseth) was behind me again ... I felt like I knew I could manage things and it was about trying to get points again,” Johnson said. So off in the waning laps, Kenseth’s frustration could be heard over the radio when he couldn’t pass Bobby Labonte and David Gilliland. “Man, this is bad,” Kenseth said. “I can’t believe I can’t even pass these two cars.” Although he wasn’t great all weekend, Kenseth said he

never saw Sunday’s performance coming. “Honestly, it was the first day like that, that we’ve had all season long,” Kenseth said. “That just, gosh, that speaks volumes about my team, we haven’t had a day like that all year where we’ve been far enough where we couldn’t stay on the lead lap. It was an unfortunate, disappointing day, but man, we did the best we could do. We just were off.” After seven wins this season, Kenseth’s first driving for Joe Gibbs Racing, Ratcliff did not believe the team choked. “Everybody’s going to say, ‘Oh, the pressure got to them,’ “he said. “Just poor execution on a track that’s so hard to pass. You’re trying to make up for something that happened earlier and it just snowballs on you. The car wasn’t responding to changes. We’d make another change and it wouldn’t help it, so we’d put that back and make another change and I don’t know if that was better or worse, so I was like ‘Just quit working on the thing, it’s not responding.’ “We were just trying to make something out of nothing.” Harvick, meanwhile, picked up his fourth win of the season when Edwards ran out of gas headed to the white flag. Harvick sailed by right before the last lap to grab another memorable moment in a career with Richard Childress Racing that will end next week after 13 seasons.

Coughlin wraps up his fifth Pro Stock NHRA crown POMONA, Calif. (AP) — Jeg Coughlin won his fifth Pro Stock title Sunday in the Auto Club NHRA Finals, joining John Force, Shawn Langdon and Matt Smith as season champions. Coughlin, a four-time event winner this season in his Dodge Avenger, took the title at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona when his only remaining challenger, Jason Line, lost in the second round of eliminations.

“In this day and age, it is so tough to win out here,” said Coughlin, from Columbus, Ohio. “We’ve seen a lot of races won and lost by just a few thousandths of a second. I think this is one of the tightest, and one of the most intense championships I’ve ever won. This ranks right up there with 2007 when we had the two cuts to the Countdown to One in the first year of our playoffs.” Coughlin is the eighth driver in

NHRA history to win five pro series championships. He also won a Super Gas title in the NHRA Lucas Oil Series in 1992. After wrapping up the season title Saturday in qualifying, Langdon finished off his season by racing to his seventh victory of the year, holding off Doug Kalitta at the finish line. In Funny Car, Matt Hagan rallied to beat 16-time champion Force in the final round and finished second

in the series standings. Force wrapped up the title in the previous event in Las Vegas. Rickie Jones raced to his first career Pro Stock victory, beating Allen Johnson in the final round. In Pro Stock Motorcycle, Eddie Krawiec topped Scotty Pollacheck in the final.

Nationwide Series victory of the year and Austin Dillon maintained his hold on the championship lead with a third-place finish at Phoenix International Raceway.
