Global politics of LNG exports BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

COOS BAY — The Jordan Cove Energy Project has become one piece of the United States’ political strategy to punish Russia for annexing Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula, political analysts say. On Monday, the U.S. Department of Energy conditionally authorized Jordan Cove to export up to 800 million standard cubic feet of liquefied natural gas per day for 20 years to non-Free Trade Agreement countries. In the last week, President

Barack Obama has been pushed from both parties to fast-track approval of LNG export facilities — particularly those on DOE’s nonFTA list — to weaken Russia’s stronghold on eastern Europe and Ukraine’s natural gas market. But no matter how fast these facilities receive approval, most will still take years to build and become operational. Jordan Cove is slated to start construction the beginning of next year (should it get all of its permits), but it wouldn’t be up and running until 2019. And its parent, Canadian energy company Veresen Inc., still has to

make its final decision whether to build the $7.7 billion facility. House Speaker John Boehner asked Obama to “do everything possible to use American energy to reduce the dependency on Russia for our friends in Europe and around the globe,” according to AP reports. On Monday afternoon, Obama and Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan’s leaders kicked Russia out of the Group of 8, canceling the G8 annual summit in June in Sochi. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said Russia President Vladimir Putin has violated international law, though he

doesn’t expect the G8 will disband for good. “The door is open to Russia to deescalate the situation,” Rhodes said. Now that Jordan Cove got the DOE’s green light, 24 other LNG export facilities are on deck for approval. But this “hurry up and wait” scenario will have minimal impact on the Russian and European market today, political analysts say. “To leverage natural gas for geopolitical impact, Washington would need to compel energy firms to direct exports to or invest in specific countries,” according to a

Unknown no longer

March 7 analysis by geopolitical intelligence firm Stratfor. “LNG export terminals are expensive, so attracting investment in them requires a promise of high returns. Natural gas companies can thus be expected to resist diverting LNG away from the most profitable destinations. For example, the Asian market for LNG is more lucrative for exports than Eastern Europe, where Russia can undercut U.S. prices. Already much of the industry’s export capacity has been sold in long-term contracts to Asian SEE LNG | A8

Coquille man sentenced in sexual assault BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World

Photos by Lou Sennick, The World

On the front page of the Coos Bay Times, Sept. 27, 1912, a short story told of the accidental death of John M. Rylander being killed in a logging accident the day before. He was buried in the Marshfield Pioneer Cemetery in an unmarked grave. Now, with the help of two grandchildren, Rylander got his headstone Monday, 102 years later. Four family members, along with See related video Crickett Soules, gathered at the online at cemetery Monday morning as theworldlink.com the new headstone was installed by Chris Boynton and Sean Chase of Oregon Granite Monument and Memorials. His grandson Richard Blide said the family “knew he was someplace here” in Coos Bay. The grave site is near the front gate of the cemetery next to Marshfield High School’s gym.

COQUILLE — A Coquille man will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for sexually assaulting a 7-yearold girl this summer. In a hearing Monday morning, Judge Richard Barron sentenced Richard J. Sanderlin to 300 months in prison for first-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse. Under Measure 11 sentencing guidelines, he won’t be eligible for parole, sentence alternatives or reductions for good behavior. Sanderlin Sanderlin was convicted March 5 after a bench trial, having waived his right to a jury during a much-delayed pre-trial process. “The incident occurred at some date prior to the end of July,” said Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier. “The little girl told her dad what happened, and he confronted (Sanderlin) about it.” Sanderlin admitted the abuse to the girl’s father. Eventually, Frasier said, Sanderlin became depressed and contacted Coos County Mental Health. The mental health department, in turn, referred him to Bay Area Hospital. Both medical providers were alarmed by Sanderlin’s admissions that he had molested the girl, and, under state law, were required to report the abuse. Coos County sheriff’s deputies later arrested Sanderlin at the hospital. Sanderlin’s attorney, Ron Cox, had asked Barron to take Sanderlin’s health under consideration prior to sentencing, saying that a stroke prior to the assault had altered his judgment. Sanderlin’s son also said the stroke had worsened his father’s judgment. Barron told Cox that even if he was inclined to take Sanderlin’s mental capacity into account — a defense that hadn’t been enough to prevent his conviction — SEE SANDERLIN | A8

companies’ supporters chanted, “My faith, my business.” The justices have never before held that profit-making businesses have religious rights. But the companies in the Supreme Court case and their backers argue that a 1993 federal law on religious freedom extends to businesses as well as individuals. Under the new health care law, health plans must offer a range of preventive services at no extra charge, including all forms of birth control for women that have been

approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Some of the nearly 50 businesses that have sued over covering contraceptives object to paying for all forms of birth control. But the companies involved in the high court case are willing to cover most methods of contraception, as long as they can exclude drugs or devices that the government says may work after an egg has been fertilized. The largest company among them is Hobby Lobby Stores Inc.,

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court justices are weighing whether corporations have religious rights that exempt them from part of the new health care law that requires coverage of birth control for employees at no extra charge. The case being argued at the Supreme Court on Tuesday involves family-owned companies that provide health insurance to their employees, but object to cov-

ering certain methods of birth control that they say can work after conception, in violation of their religious beliefs. The Obama administration and its supporters say a Supreme Court ruling in favor of the businesses also could undermine laws governing immunizations, Social Security taxes and minimum wages. Protesters on both sides gathered outside the court Tuesday as light snow fell on Washington. “Back off, boss,” went one refrain from administration backers. The

Thefts & Mischief COOS BAY POLICE DEPARTMENT

By Thomas Moriarty, The World

Oregon state troopers survey the scene of a sedan-versus-log-truck crash on Coos River Highway near the Allegany Community Center on Monday morning.

Coos Bay woman hurt when car hits log truck THE WORLD A Coos Bay woman wound up in the hospital Monday morning after her car collided with a log truck near Allegany. According to Oregon State Police, 32-year-old Melissa J. LaRue suffered injuries that were not lifethreatening when her

Cadillac Deville collided with a Kenworth log truck near milepost 15 of Coos River Highway, across from the Allegany Community Center. The truck was forced almost halfway off the road, its cab dangling in brush over the West Fork Millicoma River. A rescue crew from the

Millington Rural Fire Protection District was dispatched to the scene just after 10 a.m., along with troopers and Coos County sheriff’s deputies. LaRue was taken to Bay Area Hospital by Bay Cities Ambulance. The driver of the log truck, 46-year-old James Cook, was not reported to be

injured. The Oregon Department of Transportation closed the northbound lane for hours while towing company employees worked to get the massive vehicle back on the road. Troopers cited LaRue for failure to maintain her lane of travel.

Community plan needs vision Our view Any plan needs a vision and a mission.

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

The Department of Energy approval of an export permit for the Jordan Cove Energy Project this week raises the bar one more notch on getting the Community Enhancement Plan right for our region. The plan is the blueprint currently being drafted to address the windfall coming to us should the liquefied natural gas plant get built. Supporters of the plan have been giving presentations for the last few weeks to school boards, city councils and the county commissioners. City councils and the commissioners (but not school boards) will have to approve the plan for it to go forward.

Supporters have found much to like about the plan — 19 years of community service fees amounting to millions of dollars paid directly to the region by Jordan Cove in exchange for a long term property tax exemption. Local folks then decide how those millions get divvied. Critics of the plan don’t much care for how the divvying is proposed to be done. That’s why the plan is still in draft form. The people working on the draft say they are listening to community questions and concerns and are trying to rework the plan to address those. Certainly, the editorial board of The World has gen-

erously shared its viewpoints. And today, we present another at the bottom of this page. Stephen Kridelbaugh is President Emeritus of Southwestern Oregon Community College. His perspective is two-fold, as an education leader and a member of in this community for more than two decades. Dr. Kridelbaugh adds to the discussion something we now realize has been missing — specific purpose and vision. Please read his OPED piece, especially his seven points that he suggests craft a mission statement, and a mission statement singularly directed at our

regions needs and what our region can aspire to. As we struggle through this process, we think a vision is of the utmost importance. So much of the current debate is focused on just what’s directly in front of us — who gets funds, how much, who decides, how’s the money spent right now — more public safety, new school roofs, waterfront development. Dr. Kridelbaugh suggests what all those things should mean — to us as a community and to our descendants. His is the kind of articulate vision that should be heavily involved as the discussion goes forward, and beyond.

Yawning at the ‘Secret’ posts Beats me how new apps like “Secret” and “Whisper” are going to make big money. Presumably, that is the objective of their Silicon Valley creators. These apps combine social networking with anonymity. “Secret,” for example, lets people post anonymous messages to those on their contact list who’ve also signed on with “Secret.” The thrill supposedly comes from knowing that the “dish” comes from a probable acquaintance. For instance, you may hear someone declaring lust for your kid’s second-grade teacher without revealing his or her identity. Oooh, la la, but who is doing the lusting? Some say these apps offer the opportunity for you to be the real you without having your cover blown. If you believe that the sentiments being expressed are truthful and heartfelt — and you have no reason to so believe — then “Secret” may enchant or appall you. App founder David Byttow puts a gauzy glow on the whole operation, naturally. He said that “Secret” helps people “connect on a deep and emotional level and then perhaps learn new ideas and meet new people through the viral mechanism of secret spreading.” Perhaps. It also helps unidentified creeps play nasty games with the feelings of others. And it FROMA lets competitors spread HARROP false information and wrong advice under the Columnist guise of being supportive. While “Secret” offers one a place to bare all under the cloak of anonymity, its promoters want to know everything about you. Their fortune lies in your handing over your contacts — your list of names, addresses and phone numbers. Also your calendar. These things are pure marketing gold. Creators of anonymous social media apps are avidly working Silicon Valley for venture capital, and they’d better work fast. That’s because growing numbers are coming to the conclusion that information not tied to a source is unauthoritative, to put it mildly. And you don’t have to be a mind reader to suspect that some “friends” in your address book don’t like you very much. Furthermore, the 21st century is hardly starving for unfiltered information. Most every vile thought, devious lie or subset of pornography can be found online — and at no cost to the readership. Perhaps knowing that you might know the source adds a certain titillation value. But really, is the sanctity of your contacts list worth nothing? Meanwhile, the ability of anonymous scribblers to shock or even amuse is not what it was. That some unidentified knuckle dragger says nasty things online or in email barely rates a yawn. An inflammatory comment attached to a real person of note may draw some interest. But the public is getting jaded about that, too. The outpourings from Rush Limbaugh’s id may have created a stir years ago, but who gets excited anymore? Then there are advertisers. Even if an app amasses a large following, it’s hard to imagine that companies would want their wares associated with trashy observations. Facebook’s success with advertisers is tied to its policy of requiring participants to use their real identities. By contrast, Twitter could suffer economically from its letting users post tweets under a veil of anonymity or, worse, a false identity. It’s not good that a jealous rival can latch on to your Twitter name and spread unlovely sentiments to your followers. Lastly, beware of casually handing over your contacts and calendars. People in the business call these the “crown jewels” of private information. Respect yourself.

Letters to the Editor Is Veresen even commited yet? I would like to give The World an A-plus on their coverage for the Jordan Cove Project, but I must say they deserve an Incomplete. You have given the public little information on Veresen of Canada. As owners of the terminal and half the pipeline, they must provide $5.3 billion to complete it. In simple English, they do not have the money yet and have not decided to build it yet. On March 5, they released an online document titled “Veresen Announces 2013 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results and Affirms 2014 Guidance.” Under a section called “LNG Project Development” it states what is needed to make JCEP viable, and they said the following: “Based on

current FERC progress, Veresen expects to be in a position to make a final investment decision on this project in early 2015.” While everyone that stands to make a buck from this gas plant they want to build in our tsunami hazard zone is salivating and working on how to channel the proceeds, the parent company has not even decided if they will build it or keep it. In the information, they also spoke of “ownership options.” This document says their targeted customers are Asian non-free trade nations, and it is reasonable to think that is where they will also find ownership options. It is time for this part of the story to make the front page. Members of The World team, please do your homework. This is far from being a done deal. In fact, to build or not to build is the real

question for Veresen. The money is not in the bank. They do not know if they have the all the customers needed. Department of Energy permission is likely months away. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission permit that needs to state and resolve environmental impact won’t be finished till the end of the year. They will consider the gas market studies in 2015 and maybe even decide not to proceed. Tell this community before, not after the fact, who we are dealing with and their financial condition. Janice Williams North Bend

LNG can pay for sewage upgrades It appears that the LNG plant is going to be a reality. In past statements by the plant owners or

representatives of the LNG, they said the tax exempt deal didn’t mean that much to them. Maybe they would be willing to help fund the Bay Area’s sewage upgrades in exchange for the tax deal, or something could be worked out to achieve that end. Jim Rosson North Bend

CEP will restore economic health Your Views

BY STEPHEN KRIDELBAUGH I have been interested in the stories/editorials in The World on the Community Enhancement Plan (CEP). I believe that the CEP will make this area the best area to raise a family, to work and to live in the state. The size of the Community Enhancement Plan, which is estimated to be $1 billion over 20 years, will create the future where we are the best. Without the CEP I know what our future will be.It is not good.In the 24 years that we have lived in Coos County the measurements of our region’s economic and social well-being have been dismal. Our area has one of the highest annual rates in the state for unemployment; domestic violence, divorce, drug/alcohol abuse; single parent households, and K-12 graduation rates. The population has not grown in 34 years, but our population has grown much older and young couples with children have fled the area: there are no family wage jobs. Enrollments in our K-12 districts have fallen almost every year for the past 24 years. Our individual/family incomes on an annual basis are far below state averages for these groups. These statistics are frightening. There should be a mission statement for the governing bodies of the CEP. An example mission statement is that, “Within a period of 20 years the expenditure of these resources

will make Coos and Western Douglas counties the best and most successful place to live, raise a family and work in the State of Oregon.” This example mission statement will be measured by the following example goals: Coos County and Western Douglas County in 20 years shall have: 1. Average incomes will be 25 percent greater than state averages and the unemployment rate shall be 50 percent of the state unemployment rate. 2. The graduation rate from high school will be the highest in the state. 3. The rate of substance abuse shall be the lowest in the state. 4. The rate of divorce shall be the lowest in the state. 5. The rate of domestic violence shall be the lowest in the state. 6.Preschool attendance,vaccination, and child development rates shall be the highest in the state. 7. The rate of expenditure for the arts per capita shall be the highest in the state. These goals measure the economic and social health of our communities. There is no reason the CEP cannot be created for our citizens.

The proposals are lawful and appropriate. I see no reason that we should apologize that the CEP represents an estimated $1 billion over 20 years for our citizens — good for us. We should take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to improve the wellbeing of our citizens. Enhanced funding over 20 years for education and the economy will provide the best opportunity to improve our communities that I have seen in 24 years. I am very familiar with the K-12 and Community College equity funding formulas, and let me assure you that there are all kinds of inequalities in our funding. Locally, if we want to beat equalization to death, worry about what the state will do if we create the CEP,get into arguments about who will be the leadership and transparency and accountability as reasons to “deep six” the CEP then I am sure that we will be successful, and we will lose this wonderful opportunity. If we lose this opportunity, shame on all of us. We should be thankful that Bill Lansing, John Whitty and former Sen. Joanne Verger have agreed to serve on the South Coast Community Foundation,

one of two nonprofit entities within the plan, the other being the Bay Front Development Foundation. I have no doubt that both will be accountable and transparent. Instead of using accountability and transparency as reasons to stop this project, I purpose that the governing bodies of the CEP follow Oregon state law for public bodies regarding open and executive sessions. Also, that a reputable accounting firm is hired to conduct an annual audit on both the funds and programs of the CEP and that this annual audit report is shared with all of our citizens. We should be thankful that Veresen Inc. (the Jordan Cove Project) wants to insure that we share in the abundant property taxes it will pay. Veresen wants to have its cash in lieu of property taxes stay local and not run off with the tax abatement and invest it elsewhere. The Veresen Corporation has to be commended for this decision. We should support the Jordan Cove Project. Much work remains as to how the CEP is developed and implemented. Let us not defeat ourselves. Let us not be our own worst enemies. Let us work together to do this for our people, our children. is Kridelbaugh Stephen President Emeritus of Oregon Southwestern Community College.

News of the West Let bride be the guide for wedding guest list DEAR ABBY: My daughter is being married soon, and I need some guidance about inviting my aunt and uncle to the wedding. They live about 30 miles from us. We moved to this area four years ago, and we’ve had them over for dinner once and invited them another time. They declined because they were going to be out of town. Abby, they didn’t reciprocate, and in fact, didn’t DEAR even invite us to their daughter’s wedding, which hurt us very much. I had always considered myself close to these relJEANNE t i v e s PHILLIPS abefore we moved here, so their treatment of my family and me has been painful. My mother is telling me to turn the other cheek despite everything and invite them to my daughter’s wedding. My daughter doesn’t want them to attend and neither does my husband, but Mom is emphatic about inviting them “because they’re family.� I would appreciate your opinion on this, Abby, because I’m between a rock and a hard place, and my emotions are pulling me apart. — BETWIXT AND BETWEEN DEAR BETWIXT: The bride’s wishes should prevail. Her happiness on her wedding day is more important than the feelings of relatives who don’t bother with you, her and your family. I have always said that one should never invite guests to a wedding hoping they won’t show up, because they usually do. DEAR ABBY: I have an older friend who is 70. She doesn’t have much money. She was having blood pressure problems, so I ordered a deluxe blood pressure machine for her that cost $160. It wasn’t a birthday gift; I was seriously concerned for her. I learned this week that she “loaned� it to a friend. I wrote her a note and asked her nicely to please get it back because I didn’t buy it for her friend (who has plenty of money), but because I was worried about her health. She is now not speaking to me, and MY blood pressure is going up by the minute because I’m so angry. Was I out of line or is she? —HYPER-FURIOUS IN ARIZONA DEAR HYPER-FURIOUS: Relax. Breathe. What you did was a beautiful and generous gesture, but the blood pressure machine was a GIFT. Once a gift is given, it belongs to the recipient to do with as she (or he) wishes. For you to tell her to ask for it back may have been well-intentioned, but it was the wrong thing to do. DEAR ABBY: I’m an average 17-year-old guy. I love basketball, football and girls. The problem is I’m a player, and girls say I “use� them. I’m not ready to settle down, and I end up hurting girls and breaking many hearts. How can I cure my player habits and heal some of the hearts I’ve broken? — TIRED OF PLAYING DEAR TIRED OF PLAYING: Apologize to any young woman you have misled. Then ask yourself, “How would I feel if I had been treated this way?� If you practice the Golden Rule — “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you� — it will serve you well in most situations. If everyone did this, we could change the name of our planet from Earth to Paradise, and wouldn’t that be heavenly? CONFIDENTIAL TO “STUCK IN DULLSVILLE�: Because you’re convinced your job is a dead end, start sending out resumes. Jack London had this to say about stagnating lives: “I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong time. I shall use my time. ... The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.�

OSHA fines WildCat Haven in mauling case STATE D I G E S T

PORTLAND (AP) — State safety officials have fined an Oregon wild cat sanctuary $5,600 for two serious violations, one of which likely contributed to an employee being mauled to death by a cougar. The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division found the sanctuary violated its two-person safety procedure by allowing employees to work alone with the wild cats on a frequent basis. Head keeper Renee The Associated Press was Rescue workers remove one of a number of bodies from the wreckage of homes destroyed by a mudslide near Radziwon-Chapman Oso, Wash., Monday. The search for survivors of Saturday’s deadly mudslide grew Monday to include scores killed at the sanctuary while of people who were still unaccounted for as the death toll from the wall of trees, rocks and debris that swept working alone, cleaning a cougar enclosure. through the rural community rose to at least 14. Oregon OSHA also found the latches on the cougar cages and the cat enclosure were inadequately designed at the Sherwood-area facility. Sanctuary lawyer Dale Johnson said in a statement that both of the violations have already been addressed.

Search for Washington mudslide survivors grows BY P. SOLOMON BANDA AND PHUONG LE The Associated Press

OSO, Wash. — The search for survivors of a deadly Washington state mudslide grew Monday to include scores of people who are still unaccounted for, raising fears that the deep muck could have claimed many more lives than the eight bodies found so far. In a race to find loved ones, family members and neighbors used chain saws and their bare hands to dig through wreckage that was tangled by the mud into piles of filthy debris. Authorities said they were looking for more than 100 people who had not been heard from since the disaster about 55 miles northeast of Seattle. They predicted that the number of missing would decline as more people are found safe. But the startling initial length of the list added to the anxieties two days after a mile-wide layer of soft earth crashed onto a cluster of homes at the bottom of a river valley. “The situation is very grim,� Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots said, stressing that authorities are still in rescue mode and are holding out hope. But he noted: “We have not found anyone alive on this pile since Saturday.� About 30 houses were destroyed, and the debris blocked a mile-long stretch of state highway near Arlington. Cory Kuntz and several volunteers worked Monday with chain saws to cut through the roof of his uncle’s house, which was swept about 150 yards from its previous location. Kuntz said his aunt, Linda McPherson, was killed. He and the others pulled out files, his aunt’s wallet and a box filled with pictures and slides. “When you look at it, you just kind of go in shock, and you kind of go numb,� he said, adding that there were more people out helping Sunday. On Monday, they

couldn’t get through roadblocks. “They are all eager to get down here, but unfortunately they can’t. It just shows how tight this community is,� he said. Doug Reuwsaat, who grew up in the area and was also helping in the search, said authorities had told people to stay away. “We’re related to a lot of these people from around here. So that’s why we’re here,� he said. The mudslide struck Saturday morning, a time when most people are at home. Of the 49 structures in the neighborhood, authorities believe at least 25 were full-time residences. An overnight search of the debris field turned up no other bodies, Hots said. Monday’s search was to include aircraft, dogs and heavy equipment. Frustrations were growing as family members and neighbors waited for official word on the missing and the dead. Elaine Young and her neighbors uncovered several bodies Sunday and had to contact authorities to get them removed. They also found a chocolate Labrador named Buddy alive, and helped pull the dog from the rubble, leading her to wonder if other survivors could be out there, desperate for help. “If we found a dog alive yesterday afternoon that we cut out of a part of a house, doesn’t that seem that maybe somebody could be stuck up under part of a house and be alive too?� asked Young, whose home survived the slide but was on the edge of the devastation. believe Authorities Saturday’s slide was caused by recent heavy rains that made the terrain unstable. From the beginning, rescue crews on the ground have faced dangerous and unpredictable conditions as they navigated quicksandlike mud that was 15 feet deep in some places. Some who went in got caught up to their armpits in the thick, sticky sludge.

The threat of potential flash floods or another landslide also loomed over rescuers. On Monday, some crews had to pull back because of concern that a hillside could shift. Retired firefighter Gail Moffett, who lives in Oso, said she knows about 25 people who are missing, including entire families with young children. “It’s safe to say I’ll know everyone affected or who they are,� Moffett said. “There’s so much pain going on in the community right now.� Snohomish County Management Emergency Director John Pennington said the list of 108 names included construction workers who were working in the area and people just driving by. But, he cautioned, that does not necessarily mean there are dozens of additional fatalities. “It’s a soft 108,� Pennington said, explaining that the number would almost certainly fall as people are slowly located. The spirits of searchand-rescue teams were raised late Saturday when they heard cries for help from the flotsam of trees, dirt and shattered wood. But no one else has been found alive. Three people were confirmed dead on Saturday. By late Sunday, the number of fatalities had risen to eight. The slide blocked the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, which is continuing to back up, officials said. Authorities said Monday at least seven homes are now flooded, and more flooding is expected. Frequent, heavy rain and steep geography make the area prone to landslides. Less than a decade ago, another slide hit in the same general area. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee described the scene as “a square mile of total devastation� after flying over the disaster area Sunday. He assured families that everything was being done to find their missing loved ones.

Judge wants oversight of Portland police reforms PORTLAND (AP) — A judge says he won’t approve the city of Portland’s agreement with the federal Justice Department to reform police training and use-of-force policies unless he can hold at least annual hearings on the progress of police compliance. The Oregonian newspaper reports that U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon told attorneys Monday he does not think it would be 1 right for 3 ⠄2 years to go by without the court learning how substantial compliance is progressing. The settlement stems from a Justice Department investigation that found Portland police engaged in a pattern or practice of excessive force against people with mental illness. The investigation also listed several examples in which officers used stun guns without justification against people in a mental health crisis.

Death of Portland inmate ruled a suicide PORTLAND (AP) — Authorities have identified a Multnomah County jail inmate who died in his cell as Sandro Perezbejar. He was booked into the jail almost a year ago and was awaiting trial on charges of sex abuse and sodomy. A jail deputy discovered the body late Saturday — just 10 minutes before the inmate was to turn 39 years old. The county medical examiner ruled the death a suicide.

PORTLAND (AP) — Oregon Zoo officials in Portland say a 15-year-old female Amur tiger named Nicole has died after suffering apparent seizures. The Oregonian reports that Zoo Director Kim Smith says a visitor reported the tiger was in trouble about noon Monday. Zoo staff cleared the Tiger Plaza area of visitors and brought in a veterinary van. Vet staffers climbed to the roof of the tiger exhibit while keepers enticed Nichole’s brother, Mikhail, to an indoor enclosure. Smith says vet staff saw Nicole’s seizures stop — and then she died. The director says a necropsy found hemorrhaging and other irregularities in the tiger’s brain. Otherwise, she looked healthy. A cause of death has not been determined. The zoo says the median life expectancy for Amur tigers is 16 years for males and 14.3 years for females.

Army Corps not to cut Caspian terns’ habitat PORTLAND (AP) — Federal regulators have decided not to shrink Caspian tern habitat on East Sand Island near the mouth of the Columbia River in efforts to reduce the number of juvenile salmon and steelhead they feed on. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed the reduction in January. But the Corps recommended no action in the environmental review it released Monday. The proposal was to cut nesting habitat from 1.58 acres to 1.08 acres to decrease the number of birds and protect endangered fish. But the Corps said drought conditions could result in terns just relocating farther upstream. By keeping the habitat intact, regulators hope to keep more terns in the lower estuary where juvenile salmons represent less of a percentage of their diet than farther upriver.

Skateboarder tried to break into station TROUTDALE (AP) — Police in Troutdale, arrested a man who they say tried to break into the department to retrieve a skateboard. Sgt. Steve Bevens says the door handle to the main entrance at the police station was gone late Saturday. The building’s surveillance system showed the attempted break-in, with the suspect leaving the scene with the handle still in his hand. Officers identified the suspect as 20-year-old Nathaniel Mirelez of Wood Village. He was arrested for shoplifting earlier Saturday. Bevens says Mirelez told investigators he wanted to get inside to get his skateboard back. It had been taken as safekeeping property during the shoplifting arrest. The police department only has office hours from Monday through Friday.

15 minutes is worth more than you think Want to stop spending so much of your hard earned money on utility bills? Check out these clever gadgets that will keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket — not your utility providers’ — year after year. Each of these projects can be completed in 15 minutes or less and requires no advanced skills or special equipment. HOT WA TER-S AVI NG S H O W E R H E A D . If you multit a s k EVERYDAY hile CHEAPSKATE w wa i t i n g for your shower to warm up — making the bed or pot of coffee — the hot water Mary could Hunt h a v e b e e n running for minutes, wasting water and adding unnecessary dollars to your utility bills. The Ladybug Showerhead adapter saves the hot water. At about $20, Ladybug is so smart, it senses the moment the water is warm and stops the flow to a tiny trickle. When you’re ready, just flip a switch to restart the normal flow. This adapter saves $75 in hot water cost plus 2,700 gallons of water each year, based on a family of three showering daily and saving one minute of hot water per shower. SOCKET SEALERS. You can cut 10 percent from your energy costs by properly sealing and insulating areas around the home to make it as airtight as possible. Start with all of the light switches and electrical outlets. Install foam inserts (about 10 cents each) to stop warmed or cooled air from being sucked out of the house through the air gaps around every switch and outlet. Simply remove the cover plate, pop in a gasket and replace the plate. WATER HEATER BLAN K E T . Just like insulating your walls or roof, insulating your hot water tank is an easy and inexpensive way to improve energy efficiency and save you money each month. Check to see if your tank has insulation with an R-value of at least 24. If not, consider insulating your water tank up to 9 percent in water heating costs. You can find pre-cut water heater blankets for around $20. If you don’t know your water heater tank’s R-value, touch it. A tank that is warm to the touch is heating the water but also the area in which it is located and needs additional insulation. S M A RT P O W E R S T R I P S . Turn off all the lights and then walk through your home, and you’ll probably see eyes peering through the darkness. All of those glowing LEDs, clocks and power switches are sneaky electronic vampires. This phantom power drain costs you money and wastes electricity. Smart power strips, starting at about $25, work to reduce your power usage by automatically shutting down power to products that go into standby mode (no more crawling under desks and furniture to manually switch a power strip to “off.” Smart power strips will save you some serious cash. Statistics vary, but experts say standby power consumption in an average home ranges from 5 to 10 percent of your household energy consumption.

Defense chief resigns; troops leave Crimea KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Lawmakers in Ukraine accepted the resignation of the defense minister Tuesday as thousands of troops began withdrawing from the Crimean Peninsula, now controlled by Russia. In an address to parliament, Igor Tenyukh said he rejected criticism that he had failed to issue clear instructions to troops, but that he reserved the right to step down. Lawmakers initially refused his resignation, but later accepted it. A majority then voted to appoint Col. Gen. Mikhail Kovalyov as his replacement.

Sailor, civilian suspect killed at Va. base NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A sailor was fatally shot aboard a guided-missile destroyer docked at the world’s largest naval base late Monday, and security forces killed the lone suspect, according to the Navy. The suspect was a civilian who had access to be at Naval Station Norfolk, spokeswoman Terri Davis said early Tuesday. She said she couldn’t say whether he had permission to be on the USS Mahan, where the male sailor was shot about 11:20 p.m. Monday. No other injuries were The Associated Press reported, and the base was The USS Mahan, a guided-missile destroyer, moves up the Hudson River briefly on lockdown, accord- in New York during Fleet Week on May 26, 2004. ing to the Navy.

The shooting on the Mahan comes about a month after the Navy held anti-terrorism and force protection exercises on bases around the U.S., including an active-shooter drill at the Norfolk station. To get on the base, civilians must be escorted or have identification that allows them to be there. Authorized civilians can include Department of Defense employees, contractors and military family members. Davis would not elaborate on how the suspect was authorized to get on base. Each base entrance is guarded, and motorists present IDs. Inspections are rare. All 13 piers have additional security forces. As part of ongoing security efforts, handheld ID scanners were implemented this year at Navy bases in the region, including the Norfolk station.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — China demanded that Malaysia turn over the satellite data used to conclude that a Malaysia Airlines jetliner had crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, killing everyone on board, as gale-force winds and heavy rain on Tuesday halted the search for remains of the plane. The weather is expected to improve so that the multinational search being conducted out of Perth, Australia, could possibly resume Wednesday. But the searchers will face a daunting task of combing a vast expanse of choppy seas for suspected remnants of the aircraft sighted earlier.

Obama to end NSA’s sweep of records WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House wants the National Security Agency to get out of the business of sweeping up and storing vast amounts of data on Americans’ phone calls. The Obama administration this week is expected to propose that Congress overhaul the electronic surveillance program by having phone companies hold onto the call records as they do now, according to a government official briefed on the proposal. The New York Times first reported the details of the proposal Monday night. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the plan.

Crews clean up Texas oil spill GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — Cannon booms reverberate across the Houston Ship Channel, a scare-tactic to keep birds away from oilslicked beaches. On a mainland shore near a line of refineries, crews scour the sand for quarter-sized tar balls that have washed ashore. Far on the horizon a few ships floated outside the channel, among the dozens of vessels waiting for the U.S. Coast Guard to reopen one of the nation’s busiest seaports after a barge collision dumped as many as 170,000 gallons of heavy oil into the water.

D I G E S T Efforts to conceal the extent of dangerous car defects at Toyota Motor Corp. were so pervasive, prosecutors say, that an exasperated employee at one point warned that “someone will go to jail if lies are repeatedly told.” Yet no one has gone to jail, nor is likely to.

Pistorius says it’s a ’tough time’ PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius, who is expected to testify in his murder trial at the end of the week,said Tuesday he’s going through “a tough time” in a rare comment after the prosecution closed its case against the double-amputee runner. It is “likely” Pistorius will take the stand to open the defense’s case, said defense lawyer Brian Webber, adding there’s no specific requirement for him to testify first but it is normal practice.

Egypt court to rule swiftly in mass trial MINYA, Egypt (AP) — After a single session with no defense lawyers present, an Egyptian judge said Tuesday he will issue verdicts next month in a new mass trial of 683 suspected Islamists on charges of murder and attempted murder, a day after he sentenced hundreds to death in a similar trial that raised a storm of international criticism. The mass trials have deep concerns raised among human rights activists over the lack of due process as Egyptian authorities push swift and heavy prosecutions in their crackdown against Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood. Some 16,000 have been in arrested in the crackdown since the the military’s ouster of President Mohammed Morsi last summer.

’Miracle’ no deaths in Chicago airport train crash CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago train driven by an apparently sleepy operator, which jumped its tracks and screeched up an escalator at one of the world’s busiest airports, could have caused untold death and destruction had the crash occurred during the day when the station is usually packed with travelers, a transportation expert said. More than 30 people were hurt when the Chicago Transit Authority train mounted a platform and crashed at O’Hare International Airport around 3 a.m. Monday. Federal investigators, who have released little information on what may have caused the accident, were expected back on the scene Tuesday. “It is a miracle that nobody died,” said Joseph Schwieterman, a transportation expert at DePaul University.

while helping the ones already there to thrive. “It is clear that the downtown is an integral part of our city, and therefore it is time to adjust our patrol strategies to have more of a presence,” he said. The early-morning sweeps are conducted as time allows, but the aim is to look for such things as people sleeping in doorways and drinking in public. “We’re coming across people who are either camping or caught with open containers,” said Jim Hamilton, the department’s interim deputy chief. One recent pre-dawn sweep resulted in four citations handed out: three for sleeping in public areas and one for having an open container of liquor. One intoxicated woman was found sleeping on a sidewalk about 5 a.m.; another woman was found about 15 min-

About 8 a.m., one of the women who earlier had been cited for public consumption and sleeping on a sidewalk was warned by police to stay away from the downtown Safeway, after she tried to buy beer but was denied due to intoxication. About an hour later, after police again came across her during a check near Sixth and G streets, an ambulance finally was summoned and she was taken to the hospital. “She couldn’t take care of herself,” said Officer Brian Coney, who had been on foot patrol.

GRANTS PASS (AP) — Grants Pass police are conducting early morning downtown “vagrant sweeps” and have begun daytime foot patrols in the central business district. Ongoing now for several weeks, the increased pressure is designed to combat a noticeable increase in problems with street people downtown that corresponded with severe Josephine County budget cuts in 2012. Those cuts, following the first of two failed public safety levies, reduced capacity at the 262-bed county jail to fewer than 100 beds. In response, the City Council has since temporarily rented up to 30 beds at a cost of $1 million. Interim Public Safety Director Bill Landis said the sweeps are in keeping with the City Council’s goals of attracting more business to the downtown

Bulldogs drop two games THE WORLD North Bend’s baseball team lost both its games at the Newport tournament on Monday, but showed signs of improvement through the day, coach Brad Horning said. The Bulldogs fell to the host Cubs 7-5 after a fast start in the first game. Later in the day, Molalla beat North Bend 5-4. “We are emerging,” Horning said. “The bats looked a lot better. “Newport being a perennial state power, we swung the bats real well early. We didn’t sustain it.” North Bend had six of its eight hits in the first inning, including doubles by Zach Inskeep, Jonathan Bennison and Garrett McCoy. The Bulldogs also scored four of their runs in the einning and led until Newport got four runs in the fourth. Eight of North Bend’s nine batters had hits in each game. Against Molalla, Marshall Rice was 2-for-3 with a run and Bennison and Inskeep each had another double. “We had a lot of opportunities we created, but didn’t finalize,” Horning said. Hunter Jackson pitched well the second game, teaming with Garrett McCoy on a four-hitter, Horning said. The Bulldogs face Gladstone today in their other game in the tournament. Panthers take two: Gold Beach swept Glendale in a nonleague doubleheader at Glendale on Saturday, winning 16-6 and 16-4. The Panthers next start a string of four straight days with South Coast teams playing games at the University of Oregon’s PK Park in Eugene when they face Knappa and Sheridan at the stadium Wednesday. North Bend plays a doubleheader with Hidden Valley at PK Park on Thursday and BrookingsHarbor has a twin bill with Tillamook there Friday. Reedsport faces Pilot Rock for two games at the stadium Saturday.

Lakers start strong on track THE WORLD The Southwestern Oregon Community College track and field team has had a strong start to the season with several school records and NWAACC qualifiers during the team’s first three meets. Marshfield graduate Jasmine Meline now owns two school records for the Lakers, including a mark of 2 minutes, 20.95 seconds for the 800 meters during the Lewis & Clark Spring Break Open on Saturday. She finished third in the event. Meline earlier set the record for the 1,500 meters with her time of 4:59.08 at the Lane Preview Meet in Eugene. Paul Harlow, another Marshfield graduate, won the pole vault in the meet at Lane by clearing 14 feet, 6 inches, a height he achieved again while placing second at Lewis & Clark. The mark also qualifies him for the NWAACC meet. SWOCC coach Dan Neal said both Harlow and Chase Messerle, another former Pirate, are thriving under pole vault coach Steve Pucket. Also Saturday, Marshfield graduate Zach Hammond improved his NWAACC qualifying time in the 3,000-meter steeplechase to 9:58, placing second. Eric Jordan qualified for the NWAACC meet with his effort of 43-7 in the shot put. T im Crawford (41-11) and Brandon Gannon of Reedsport (40-6) placed third and sixth, respectively, in the triple jump. For the women, McKenzie De Vault was seventh in the discus, qualifying for the NWAACC meet with her mark of 119 feet. SEE SWOCC | B2

Oregon State head coach Scott Rueck, center, huddles with his team after OSU beat Middle Tennessee State 55-36 in their first-round game in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament Sunday. The Beavers face top seed South Carolina in the second round tonight.

Rapid reversal Rueck has OSU headed in right direction SEATTLE (AP) — Five years to rebuild was probably a reasonable expectation for Scott Rueck when he arrived at Oregon State considering the disarray he was inheriting. He arrived in Corvallis to take over a program that was devastated amid allegations of emotional abuse under former coach LaVonda Wagner. The roster was so barren, Rueck held open tryouts. His first game, the squad included two returners, three freshmen, three walkons, a soccer player and a volleyball player. That was the fall of 2010. Tonight, Oregon State (24-10) will play for a spot in the Sweet 16 when the ninth-seeded Beavers face No. 1 seed South Carolina. “I don’t think there’s any way you could have predicted that we would be here right now. I wouldn’t have,” Rueck said Monday. “I thought best-case scenario would be year five or six.” Both South Carolina (28-4) and Oregon State have undergone massive makeovers under their current coaches. Dawn Staley has elevated the Gamecocks to the elite of the Southeastern Conference, with the school earning its first No. 1 seed this season. But what Rueck has done with Oregon State is worthy of more attention than it has received. After 14 seasons at Division III George Fox, Rueck was tasked with rebuilding a crumbling program. The school seriously considered shelving the program for one season in an attempt to rebuild the foundation. Rueck forged ahead during a challenging first season in 2011, leading the Beavers to a 921 record. The first breakthrough came a season later, when Oregon State was 20-13 and was

selected for the Women’s NIT. Even with a major step back in 2013, when the Beavers finished 10-21, Rueck knew winning was coming soon. Oregon State was landing players he assumed it would take many seasons to get. Sydney Wiese was one of those. She believed in what Rueck was selling, that the NCAA tournament was obtainable. Her careerhigh 26 points in the 55-36 win over Middle Tennessee in the first round gave the Beavers their first NCAA win since 1995 and third in school history. Their NCAA tournament history is so limited that the box scores take up only two pages in the team’s game notes and include the hand written boxes from Oregon State’s first two trips in 1983 and 1984. “I believed in it. I believed that (Rueck) would recruit the right people that could get the job done and here we are,” Wiese said. Here are five things to watch as the Gamecocks and Beavers each try to reach the round of 16: FORGET BOULDER: South Carolina seemed to have a clear path to the Sweet 16 last season. After knocking off South Dakota State in the first round, the Gamecocks faced 12thseeded Kansas in the second round, the result of the Jayhawks upsetting Colorado. But Kansas pulled off a 75-69 win, holding the Gamecocks scoreless for the final 2:52 of the game. Staley said what happened a year ago in the second round hasn’t been discussed. “I think we have a totally different team, one that has proven that they can play with anybody,” Staley said.

DEFENDING THE 3: South Carolina is well aware it cannot play off Oregon State’s perimeter shooters. The Beavers made 10 3s against Middle Tennessee and are averaging 8.2 made 3-pointers for the season. The Gamecocks are giving up only 3.5 made 3s per game. “We’re just going to have to hone in on their 3-pointer shooters,” South Carolina’s Tiffany Mitchell said. “That’s where most of their production comes from. If we can eliminate that, we should be fine.” NINE LIVES: No. 9 seeds have not found much success in the second round of the tournament, going 3-45 all-time. One of those — Arkansas in 1998 — reached the national semifinals but had the benefit of facing No. 16 seed Harvard in the second round. The other 9 seeds to reach the Sweet 16: Notre Dame, which beat Texas Tech, in 1998 and Michigan State, which beat Duke, in 2009. MORE THAN ONE: Wiese’s scoring was enough against Middle Tennessee. The Beavers didn’t need much from others. Second-leading scorer Jamie Weisner — who missed nine games with a hand injury — finished with three points. Ruth Hamblin, Oregon State’s 6-foot-6 presence in the middle, was in foul trouble and also had just three points. Oregon State will need scoring from others against South Carolina. HOME COURT: There was a noticeable lack of local connections when the NCAA unveiled its bracket for the Seattle site. Oregon State was the closest thing to a local team. Beavers fans showed up for the first-round game, with orange the dominant color inside Washington’s home arena among the crowd of 2,214.

LeBron spoils Blazers’ comeback bid James hits gamewinner after Portland erases 17-point deficit in final nine minutes ■

MIAMI (AP) — Chris Bosh had another postgame scream. For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11.4 seconds left, Bosh capped his 30th birthday by blocking Damian Lillard’s layup on the final play, and the Heat blew a 17-point fourth-quarter lead before beating the Portland Trail Blazers 93-91 on Monday night. “If you talk it, you back it up,” James said. “That’s what it’s about. We have guys in here that will deliver the words and then go back it up. That was big-time on his part.” Bosh ripped into Miami after a loss at New Orleans on Saturday, saying the Heat aren’t playing with passion, among other colorful sentiments. He screamed again Monday, this time in celebration as time expired. “This game’s about passion,” Bosh said. “As hard as it is during the dog days to muster it up, the spark has to come from somewhere.” Wednesday won’t be one of those dog days. Miami visits Indiana with a chance to close within one game in the Eastern Conference race. The Pacers lost

The Associated Press

Miami Heat forward LeBron James looks for an open teammate past Portland Trail Blazers defender Wesley Matthews during the second half Monday. in Chicago on Monday night. “I miss the Pacers,” Bosh said. Bosh finished with 15 points and Chris Andersen had 13 points and 11 rebounds for Miami, which won for just the fifth time in 12 games. Mario Chalmers added 11 points for the Heat. Lillard led the Blazers with 19 points on 3-for-15 shooting. Mo Williams scored 17, Wesley Matthews had 15, Nicolas Batum 11 and Robin Lopez 10 for Portland, which was down 17 with just more than 9 minutes remaining. “I thought I had a pretty good look at it but Chris Bosh made a great play,” Lillard said of his final shot. “He met it at the top. He went up and got it. I saw him — that’s why I floated it. I didn’t think he would be able to get to it. But he met it at the very top.”

The Blazers shot 11 for 39 from 3-point range, taking only 35 shots from inside the arc. “We’re tired of losing close games, but you can’t help it to be proud of the way we competed,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “It would have been easy to fold things up, but that’s not in our DNA.” Miami was without Dwyane Wade for the 19th time this season, though this absence wasn’t part of the season-long maintenance program designed to help his knees. Wade tweaked an ankle last week in Boston. James was on the court getting shots up for about 15 minutes with less than an hour remaining until tip-off. With his earbuds on, sweat rolling off and surrounded by three ballboys, James worked on step-back jumpers, post moves

and free throws, yelling twice at himself during one stretch in which he missed three straight from the line. It was obvious: He’s had it with this Heat slide. And Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wanted the fourtime MVP aggressive, so much so that he met him on the way to the bench during a first-half timeout and gave him a two-handed shove. “Just wanted him to continue to attack,” Spoelstra said. James took 12 shots in the first quarter, tying his career high for an opening period. He made only four of them, three of those being dunks, and wasn’t shy about expressing his frustration after a couple of plays. But he got on his customary roll in time. James made seven of his next eight from the floor, and the Heat turned a six-point deficit in the first half into an 11-point lead in the third. An 11-2 Miami run to end the half — James had six of those points — sent the Heat into the locker room up 46-42, and another run opened the third. Miami scored 13 of the first 19 points in the third, with Bosh getting nine and James scoring two before setting up Greg Oden for a dunk that capped the burst and gave the Heat a 59-48 lead. And for Oden, Monday carried extra significance, since he was facing the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2007. The lead was still 11 entering the fourth, and Miami opened the final quarter with a 6-0 run that pushed the lead to 78-61 with 9:15 remaining. It was hardly over, but Bosh and James wound up saving

76ers slide at 25 after defeat

Former player mistakenly was listed as dead THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN ANTONIO — Austin Daye had 22 points and Tim Duncan added 19 as the San Antonio Spurs earned their 14th straight win with a 11391 victory Monday night that sent the Philadelphia 76ers to their 25th consecutive loss. Philadelphia will face Houston on Thursday with the dubious distinction of being a loss shy of tying the NBA record for consecutive losses set by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010-11. Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills scored 15 points each and Cory Joseph added 12 for San Antonio, which maintained the league’s best record at 54-16. The Spurs did not play starters Tony Parker, Tiago Splitter and Danny Green, but did not need them against the lowly 76ers. Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams each scored 19 points, Byron Mullens added 15 and Elliot Williams had 14 for Philadelphia (15-56). Rockets 100, Bobcats 89: James Harden scored 31 points, Dwight Howard had a double-double in his return to the court and the Houston Rockets defeated the Charlotte Bobcats for their fourth straight win. Howard had missed the previous three games with an ankle injury, but Houston won all three without him by an average of 23 points. He finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Kemba Walker had 22 points and Al Jefferson had 20 points and 11 rebounds for Charlotte, which lost for only the second time in 11 games at home. Suns 102, Hawks 95: Eric Bledsoe scored 20 points to lead five Phoenix players in double figures and the Suns won their fourth in a row, beating the Atlanta Hawks to pull even with Dallas for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Henry Sims of the 76ers shoots over San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard during the second half Monday. Hawks from 3-point range, knocking down 12 of 24 beyond the arc. Atlanta, trying to hold the eighth spot in the East, lost its third in a row after a season-high five-game winning streak. Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll led the Hawks with 19 points apiece. Bulls 89, Pacers 77: Taj Gibson led five players in double figures with 23 points and Chicago brushed off a poor offensive first half to rally past Indiana. Kirk Hinrich had 18 points on 7-for-13 shooting, Mike Dunleavy scored 13, Jimmy Butler 12 and Joakim Noah added 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. The Bulls (40-31) pulled within two percentage points of Toronto (39-30) for third place in the Eastern Conference. The win also prevented Indiana from clinching the Central Division title on Chicago’s home court. The Pacers are looking to win consecutive division crowns for the second time since joining the NBA (1998-99 and 1999-2000). Thunder 117, Nuggets 96: Kevin Durant had 27

points and eight assists to help the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat the Denver Nuggets. Caron Butler scored 23 points, his highest total since the Thunder added him right after the trade deadline. Ty Lawson scored 25 points for the Nuggets, who had won three of four. Grizzlies 109, Timberwolves 92: Mike Conley had 23 points and six assists, Marc Gasol added 14 and 12 rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies built an early lead and easily dispatched the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love led the T imberwolves with 16 points. Pelicans 109, Nets 104, OT: Tyreke Evans scored a season-high 33 points and the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans rallied from 22 down in the third quarter, beating the Brooklyn Nets. Evans scored 14 as New Orleans closed the third period on a 29-10 run to get back in the game. Anthony Morrow, who did not score until the final 2 minutes of regulation, had 11 points the rest of the way as the Pelicans

completed their comeback. Paul Pierce had 24 points and Deron Williams 23 for the Nets. Pistons 114, Jazz 94: Andre Drummond had 19 points and 14 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons shot a season-best 55 percent to blow by the Utah Jazz. Gordon Hayward scored 32 points to lead the Jazz, who have lost seven of eight. Clippers 106, Bucks 98: Blake Griffin had 27 points and 14 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers made it consecutive 50-win seasons with a lackluster victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Clippers became the ninth NBA team to have different head coaches guide a club to 50 victories in backto-back seasons. They reached the mark five games earlier under Doc Rivers than they did last season under Vinny Del Negro, when they set a franchise record with 56 wins and captured their first division title. This is Rivers’ fifth 50-win season as a head coach, including four with Boston. Newly acquired Ramon Sessions had a season-high 28 points for the Bucks.

Beckham envisions stadium near Miami port MIAMI (AP) — David Beckham’s architects and advisers have recommended the Port of Miami as the stadium site for the Major League Soccer expansion team that will be owned by the former English national team captain. The plan announced Monday would have an open-air stadium with views of the bay and the downtown skyline. The capacity could be as low as 21,000 or as high as 35,000. The operating premise is about 25,000. “Miami is all about the water, all about the culture,” said Beckham, speaking from a rooftop terrace on the Wolfson Campus of Miami Dade College, located just a few blocks from the Port of Miami. “I don’t think people see that enough. “Our site is all about the skyline. It opens up to that. And that’s what we want people to see that all around the world.” More than 30 sites were evaluated for the stadium. In addition to the rec-

Alschuler said a stadium at the Port of Miami would be built without the use of taxpayer money and that fans could drive there by using the Port of Miami tunnel and seeking limited parking spaces. However, Beckham said he was headed to Tallahassee on Tuesday to lobby the state legislature for money. “We will be funding the money ourselves, but as an organization, we want to be treated like every other (sports franchise),” Beckham said. “We’re not asking for anything more or anything less.” Beckham was asked if he could make it work without state funding. “I don’t think it would be fair to say we could or couldn’t,” he said. “We just want to be treated like every other franchise. It’s not an ideal world, but this is what we would like to have happen.”

Flying the family to Hawaii The family of Doc and Joy Robbins had not spent Christmas tegether for 15 years. As a Chrsitmas gift to his family this year, Doc flew his whole family to Hawaii. Belinda and James Gildert and gradndaughters Alexandra and Emma; Becky and Jon Jacobson and grandsons Zane and Jackson. As a thank you to their father, his daughters and their husbands took the family to a Hawaiian luau at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort. “We experienced many Hawaiian dishes: pulled pork, mahi mahi and many others. One restaurant we found on Kihei, Maui, gave our grandchildren, ages 13, 16, 20 and 23 a glimpse of what it was like when their grandparents were teenagers back in the 1950s. It was called Peggy Sue’s. Going in was like going back in time — the Everly Brothers singing songs of the ’50s, bar stools at the counter, jukeboxes at the tables and they served a great Big Bopper bacon cheeseburger. Most Christmas gifts wear out and are thrown away. But memories of this Christmas gift will last forever.”

Mini cakes fit for Easter dessert

The Associated Press

Spring matzo ball soup is a rich soup that also fills you up.

A matzo ball soup fit for a weeknight BY ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press

BY ALISON LADMAN A classic matzo ball soup often has few ingredients beyond a delicious broth and a deliciously large and tender matzo ball. But we wanted to turn this staple of Passover into a full and satisfying meal. To do this, we added a careful selection of vegetables — enough to flavor the broth and provide substance, yet not compete with the matzo balls — and a small amount of chicken. The result was a rich soup that keeps its identity, but also fills you up.

The Associated Press

Chocolate seems to reign supreme when it comes to Easter. And while it’s hard to deny the appeal of cocoa, this spring holiday also begs for something fresh and citrusy. So we created these dairyfree mini cakes that are rich with olive oil and lemon juice — in fact, 1 cup of each. The tender cakes — which deliver a delicious punch of lemon — also are covered with strawberry jam, then with a layer of toasted and chopped pecans. Delicious, fresh and simple. If pecans aren’t your thing, coat the cakes in flaked coconut or chopped pistachios.

CAKES WITH PECANS AND STRAWBERRIES

Start to finish: 1 hour 15 minutes (45 minutes active) Servings: 10 2 cup sugar 4 eggs 1 cup olive oil 1 cup lemon juice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 2 ⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 1 2 ⁄2 cups all-purpose flour 91⁄2-ounce jar strawberry jam 1 cup finely chopped toasted pecans Fresh strawberries, to garnish

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray, then line it with kitchen parchment. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the sugar and eggs on high for 2 minutes. While the eggs and sugar beat, in a measuring cup combine the olive oil and lemon juice. Into a small bowl, sift together the salt, baking powder and flour. Add half of the oil-juice mixture to the eggs, then half the flour mixture, beating just to combine. Repeat with the remaining oil-juice and

flour mixtures. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula and mix one more time. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool in the pan. Using a food processor, puree the strawberry jam until smooth. When ready to assemble, 1 use a 2 ⁄2-inch round cutter to cut 20 discs from the cake. Use care to hold the cutter straight so that your cake rounds have straight sides. To assemble each mini cake,

spread a small amount of the strawberry jam on 1 round of cake. Sandwich a second cake on top. Spread a thin layer of strawberry jam over the sides and top of the cake, then carefully roll the entire thing in the pecans. Garnish the top with a fresh strawberry. Repeat with remaining cake rounds to assemble a total of 10 mini cakes.

Add the oil, club soda, matzo meal, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, parsley and scallion. Mix well, then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. When the matzo is chilled, in a large pot over mediumhigh, heat the oil for the soup. Add the onion, leek and garlic. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until tender. Add the oregano and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Using wet hands, or a cookie scoop, drop quartersized balls of the chilled matzo mixture into the soup. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes.

Cuisine Ingberlach: Simple, delicious candy BY ALISON LADMAN

and roll it into balls.

The Associated Press

Candy making can confound even the most careful home cook. Luckily, Passover gives us an excuse to make a simple candy that is delicious and requires little fuss. And you don’t need to celebrate Passover to appreciate it. Ingberlach is a traditional Jewish candy flavored with ginger and honey. It also can contain nuts and other ingredients and is reminiscent of a sticky, chewy caramel popcorn cluster. For our version, we added crumbled matzo and chopped hazelnuts, as well as a few extra spices. All you do is boil everything for 20 minutes, then pour it onto a baking sheet. Once it is cool enough to handle, break it up

In a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine

the honey, sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and salt.Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the matzo and hazelnuts.

Saving carrots from their usual sugary Easter fate BY SARA MOULTON The Associated Press

Though carrots often make it into the Easter feast lineup, I’ve never understood why. Maybe it’s a nod to the Easter bunny. Typically, we prepare them much as we prepare sweet potatoes (their distant orange cousins) at Thanksgiving — by glazing them and otherwise shoveling on extra sugar. I’m guessing that this is a reaction to the carrot’s bright color, which reminds us of a kid’s toy.It’s orange.It’s fun.On the plate, carrots are more like a candy than a vegetable. Still, I like carrots and I think I’ve figured out a way here to redeem them. The

trick is not to be waylaid by their color, but to take advantage of their length and texture. Long, sturdy carrot peels are reminiscent of individual strands of fettuccine. Fine. Let’s prepare them as we would, say, a dish of fettuccine Alfredo — by dressing them with a creamy sauce. Not coincidentally, it’s a strategy that also allows the carrot’s natural sugars — which are plenty sweet all by themselves — to shine. You’ll want to start with big, long, fat carrots (affectionately referred to by some grocers as “horse carrots"). Just peel off and discard the outermost layer, then continue peeling on all sides until you’ve reached the woody

core. I find it easiest to start at the middle of the carrot and peel down the bottom half, then flip it over and peel the top half. This technique allows you to do the job faster than if you peeled the entire length of the carrot from top to bottom. The cores are too thin and hard to peel. You can munch on them yourself or reserve them for a future stock. The sauce for this “fettuccine” is quite simple. It’s based on Neufchatel, the French cream cheese, which miraculously provides us with the creaminess we crave even though it possesses one-third less fat than most other types of cream cheese — and much less fat than heavy cream, the ingredient that usually puts the cream in creamy pasta. We counter-balance the carrot’s natural sweetness with lemon, both the zest and juice, though lime would work just as well. The walnuts add crunch, nutty taste and some nutrition, but any nut will do: pistachios, almonds, cashews. Just pick your fave. The carrot fettuccine strands cook up very quickly — inside of 5 minutes — so you’ll want to prep them ahead of time, and measure out all the rest of the ingredients as well. Once the fettuccine is cooked, you need to move it out of the pan and onto everyone’s plate before The Associated Press the strands go soft.

BRIDGE Ambrose Bierce defined a dentist as a prestidigitator who, while putting metal in one’s mouth, pulls coins out of one’s pockets. A bridge player also wants it both ways: Heads I make my contract, tails you fail in yours. In this deal, South is in four spades. West cashes his two top diamonds, then shifts to the club 10. How should declarer continue? This is one auction that always

of Coos County, foreclosing the interests of all defendants in the real property with the proceeds applied to satisfy Plaintiff’s lien. The real property is described as follows:

mystifies less experienced players. By an unpassed hand, after partner’s takeout double and responder’s pass, if advancer (the doubler’s partner) makes a simple suit-bid, it shows some 0-8 points; a jump in a suit is approximately 9-11; and a cue-bid of the opener’s suit indicates 12 points or more. After South’s cue-bid, the auction turns to natural. Declarer’s only problem is in the trump suit. He must avoid two losers. In this case, the bidding should help him, but the right play is the same, even if during the auction the opponents gave excellent impersonations of Trappist monks. If South starts with a finesse of his queen, West wins with his king, and declarer has a nasty guess on the second round. Should he finesse East for the jack or play for West to have started with king-jack-doubleton? Instead, South should first cash his spade ace. When the king drops, he can bring home an overtrick. But even if the ace collects only the five and six, declarer can cross to dummy and lead a spade toward his queen. He has no guess to make.
