NB hoping to celebrate Jubilee at Grant Circle BY TIM NOVOTNY The World

NORTH BEND — The citizens of North Bend may have a little more to celebrate at this year’s July Jubilee. Their Urban Renewal Agency gave the go-ahead to send the Grant Circle project out to bid. City Administrator Terence O’Connor says the City Council is very excited about the project moving forward.

than 50 years ago. Now, it is going to be reunited with its community roots. Last September, the council voted unanimously to award the architectural contract to HGE Inc., although they asked the agency to try to incorporate some of the other design suggestions into their final design. O’Connor says that, with one

“We’re really hoping we can have the project done by the July Jubilee, held during the third week of July,” O’Connor said. Part of the original layout of the city of North Bend, created by Louis J. Simpson at the turn of the last century, Grant Circle had been a place for residents to gather near the heart of the city. Located one block off of U.S. Highway 101, it was bisected by California and Union avenues more

Jordan Cove awaits Canada license Bay Area project is next in line for LNG export approval ■


COOS BAY — With four LNG export licenses approved by Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Jordan Cove Energy Project is next in line. On Wednesday, Canadian minister of Greg Rickford resources natural announced the government’s approval of four long-term liquefied natural gas export

licenses for Pacific Northwest LNG, Prince Rupert LNG, WCC LNG and Woodfibre LNG. That puts Jordan Cove in the No. 1 spot awaiting approval. On Feb. 20, Canada’s National Energy Board approved Veresen Inc. (Jordan Cove’s parent company) for a 25-year long-term gas export license to Jordan Cove. That license needs Rickford’s approval before it’s official. The NEB permit allows for an export volume of 1.55 billion cubic feet per day for the length of the license, which translates to potentially 9 million metric tons per year of LNG export capacity from the

Jordan Cove terminal. To reach Jordan Cove, western Canadian natural gas would travel via existing pipeline and gas gathering networks to the Malin trading hub in Southern Oregon. From Malin, the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline — a proposed 232-mile, 36-inch pipeline — would transport natural gas to the Jordan Cove liquefaction terminal. “World energy demand is on the rise, and Canada has the unprecedented energy supply to meet that demand,” Rickford said in a news release. “The approval of these

BANDON — Though summer is three months away, Bandon residents are already talking about and dreading the possibility of another mosquito-infested season. But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, along with county officials and partners, are hoping to prevent a repeat of last summer and have unveiled a plan that they believe will help. About 50 people attended an open house last week held by USFWS representatives and attended by council officials. The purpose was to inform the public of and solicit comments on the proposed mosquito control plan as well as the environmental assessment for tidal marsh restoration at the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. Comments are being accepted on both plans, which together constitute an integrated marsh management approach to mosquito management on the refuge, according to Roy Lowe, project leader for the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex. USFWS determined that the abnormally high salt water marsh mosquito population is largely the result of recent marsh restoration activities that inadvertently created abundant mosquito breeding habitat. Mosquito experts contend that the numbers experienced in 2013 and the associated human health threat will likely recur if no remedial actions are taken to prevent it, according to the assessment. The plan proposes using habitat modification of the tidal marsh to reduce mosquito breeding pools by improving tidal flow on the Ni-les’tun Unit of the refuge. Larvicides, when necessary, will be used to reduce larval mosquito populations. “Using habitat modification to greatly



Lawmakers rush to pass bill to assist Ukraine


WASHINGTON — Lawmakers are rushing to get a bill to the president’s desk that would provide $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine and sanction those who had a hand in Russia’s takeover of Crimea. The House and Senate were poised to pass versions of the legis-

lation Thursday. Both sides said they want to get one bill to President Barack Obama’s desk before the end of the week, but it was unclear whether the work would be finished by then. The Senate bill authorizes $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine and an additional $100 million in direct aid. It would codify sanctions the U.S. already has levied

The sanctions freeze any assets those being sanctioned currently hold within U.S. jurisdiction and prohibit Americans from doing business with those targeted.

The Senate bill also included a proposal from one of Obama’s fiercest critics, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., enabling the president to impose economic penalties on Russian government officials for corruption even within Russia’s own borders. The House bill also authorizes sanctions, loan guarantees and millions in direct aid. It includes

Bandon approves moratorium on marijuana dispensaries BY AMY MOSS STRONG The World

BANDON — The Bandon City Council unanimously approved an ordinance at a special hearing Monday night enacting a 120-day moratorium on siting medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits. The council said the move gives the city time to plan for siting and regulating such facilities. The ordinance also

declared an emergency so the moratorium would go into effect immediately. “The whole debate across the state is intensifying and keeps bringing up how these are going to fit into communities,” said City Attorney Fred Carleton. “Various cities’ approaches to this are all over the map.” Carleton said some cities have banned the dispensaries outright, while others have enacted tem-

porary bans. Further, he said, the Legislature has not been much help, though a bill was passed last week that allows cities to enact up to a one-year moratorium if passed by May 1. The council, however, decided since it has been advertising that it wanted to pass a 120-day ban that it wouldn’t enact a longer one.

The Bandon Planning Commission will discuss the issue Thursday and look into the city’s existing zoning ordinances to determine what might work regarding where to site medical marijuana dispensaries. That meeting will be held at The Barn at 7 p.m. rather than City Hall, to accommodate more people. Rob Taylor was the only member of the public who

spoke at the hearing and said the council needed to plan because medical marijuana dispensaries are coming “whether you like it or not.” Taylor added that if the city doesn’t allow for them, marijuana will continue to be sold illegally. He said he approved of the 120-day ban, however. “You might as well take the time and pass some restrictive regulations and move forward on it,” he said. City Councilor Brian Vick said the Legislature has left cities hanging and that he has been studying the issue extensively. “We just want to do it right,” he said.

THE WORLD COQUILLE — A Coquille man facing multiple charges relating back to a neighborhood dispute last summer, is now on the run. Brian Millar, 58, did not show up to accept a plea agreement on Wednesday; just one day before his trial was set to start. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. The scheduled appearance, prosecutors say, was actually a routine trial readiness hearing. Deputy District Attorney Stephen Pettey says trial readiness hearings are made for just such an occasion, where they make sure that the defendant intends to

honor his obligation. This particular hearing, however, was also expected to result in a change of plea, as the two sides appeared to reached an agreement. “Sad to say, but people do fail to appear,” Pettey said. “(But), I will say it is a little unusual when there is a deal theoretically accepted, and it is being allowed by the judge.” According to court documents, police were called to a disturbance at a residence on West Central Boulevard in Coquille on the evening of Sept. 9, 2013. They determined that there had been an incident between Millar and a group of people at a nearby residence. Further

investigation uncovered a firearm belonging to Millar, which he was not allowed to have as a convicted felon. Millar was already facing a number of charges, including three counts of unlawful use of a weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm, three counts of menacing, and recklessly endangering another. Failure to appear will now be added to that list. He had posted his own security and was released, pending his trial. That security was revoked on Wednesday. The trial dates that were scheduled to start on Thursday were also canceled, at least for the time being.

A better value than we think Our view Post-secondary education can come in many forms, and be more valuable than you may know.

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

We read with interest a story in last Saturday’s newspaper about high school girls getting some hands-on experience with welding at Southwestern Oregon Community College. We’re certain the girls had fun and learned a lot. But their experience got us thinking about this kind of education in general and why it matters — for girls and boys. For more than a generation we’ve known that a high school diploma doesn’t produce much earning potential. Post-secondary training is now regarded as a bottom-line necessity for anyone hoping to make a life for themselves. Two-year technical certificates or associates degrees are generally accepted

as the lowest-level education that affords living-wage employment. Another generally accepted wisdom is that four-year degrees are worth more, in terms of earning potential, than two-year degrees. Turns out, though, that those two-year degrees may be worth more than you think. Research by the organization two years ago made a surprising discovery — some two-year degrees afford as much or more than long-term degrees, at least in the short run. The organization looked at data from five states — Arkansas, Colorado, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. In short, the

research showed that two-year technical degrees in fields like engineering (particularly petroleum), communications, health care and airframe mechanics produced annual incomes upwards of $50,000. Additionally, incomes for twoyear grads compared favorably with those who earned fouryear degrees. Quoting the report: “In Texas, graduates with technical associate’s degrees earned on average over $11,000 more in their first year after graduation than did graduates with bachelor’s degrees. Graduates with career-oriented associate’s degrees in Applied Sciences out-earned their counterparts with bachelor’s degrees in Colorado by more than $7,000

and in Virginia by more than $2,000.” We should stress that the report tracks early incomes. Other research affirms that, over time, earnings of people with four-year degrees can and will outpace those who rely on two-year degrees alone. Nevertheless, the study adds a new wrinkle to our thinking about the value of education after high school, and the options available. Earning a two-year degree, in the right field of study, is not just a springboard to an eventual bachelors. It also can provide a pretty comfortable income in the meantime. Keep welding, girls.

Katrina victims in eco-agenda I visited Louisiana recently to do some reporting on Sen. Mary Landrieu’s bid to win a fourth term in a tough political year. While there, I stopped by New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward to see how rebuilding efforts are faring nearly nine years after Hurricane Katrina. I visited one particular spot — the area where in August 2005 a flood wall holding the waters of the Industrial Canal broke, setting off a calamity that continues to this day. The destruction was total; the rebuilding is at best partial. The first thing one notices today is that solar energy panels seem to outnumber people in this particular stretch of the Lower Ninth. The panels are perched in creative ways atop brand new,brightly colored,architecturally striking, ultra-modern houses. The scene looks completely out of place in New Orleans, although it might fit nicely on the California coast. One critic said the landscape resembles “a field of pastel-colored UFOs.” The houses are the work of an organization called the Make It Right Foundation, created in 2007 by the actor Brad Pitt. The group has pledged to build 150 new homes in the area, and so far it has finished about 100. And the first thing to BYRON say about the project is: YORK Good for them. Much Columnist praise should go to people who help others rebuild homes and lives after such a terrible disaster. Here’s hoping they will continue. At the same time, what becomes clear after looking at the houses along the Industrial Canal is that they are the product of the same spirit of moral uplift and edification that in an earlier era led missionaries to house and feed the unfortunate while requiring they listen to a sermon or a series of Bible verses. The only difference is that now the sermon is about the environment. Pitt enlisted a who’s who of world architecture to design the houses. One, a pinkish-lavender duplex with a roof deck shaded by twin canopies of solar panels, is by legendary architect Frank Gehry. The house, finished in 2012, is, according to Make It Right, “one of only 22 Gehry residences in the United States and the only Gehry home in Louisiana.” Nearby homes are the work of Shigeru Ban, David Adjaye, the German design studio Graft and other architectural luminaries. The homes are what is known as LEED Platinum, meaning they meet the highest standards of “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design”as determined by the U.S. Green Homebuilding Council. The problem is, the daringly designed, environmentally sophisticated houses don’t seem to appeal to the people they were intended to help. Last year, the New Republic published a critique saying “Brad Pitt’s beautiful houses are a drag on New Orleans.” Writer Lydia DePillis — she’s the one who called the buildings “pastel-colored UFOs” — reported that the redevelopment has failed to attract former Lower Ninth residents back to the area, which has in turn failed to attract businesses. In a defense of the project, New Orleansbased architectural writer Martin Pedersen argued that Make It Right has been “aspirational from the start. It was never about building the most houses, the most expediently; never about rebuilding an entire neighborhood ... It was also about creating a model for sustainable development.” That’s another way of saying the Make It Right enterprise is really about eco-evangelism. It’s not enough to house the homeless. The victims of Katrina — in this case, a very small number of them — must also be shown the benefits of photo-voltaic panels and special concrete and eco-decking (some of which, unfortunately, has already begun to rot). They may be trying to rebuild their lives, but they’re living in someone else’s agenda.

Letters to the Editor Obama is the real America Is America going to survive the empty headed, do nothing, hateful Congress? Obama is not the problem. The non-functioning Congress is. The GOP Congress is against kids school lunches, against raising the minimum wage, against immigration reform, against health insurance, against the working unions — teachers, police, firefighters, etc. — against fair voting laws. Also, diffidently against all environmental measures designed to help our planet on which we depend for a healthy life. Against funding for rebuilding our failing infrastructure, as it crumbles around our ears. Against Obama’s jobs progress. For Pete’s sake, stop attacking this wonderful, fair-minded liberal American. Dump the racism

crap, dump the un-American GOP Congress. As of now, we are now living in dangerous, political war-like times once again. Rally around our president. President Obama is all we have now for this current crisis. President Obama needs all Americans moral support. United we stand — divided we all. We all know who wants Obama to fail. The Koch brothers and Congress. If such an event should actually occur, we all go hungry and fall to tyrannical rule and bullying! We were divided prior to WWII and we are even more divided now. Will it actually take another world war to unite us once again? Pray to God this isn’t the case. One to many self-serving billionaires in this county to do anyone any good at all, and ignorance is rampant among the right. For our country’s sake, I highly recommend we all go behind our

politically ravaged president. What he faces, we all face. No support, we all lose! Backing our president is backing our America. Obama is real America. Ronald K. Gallagher Reedsport

Port’s vote closes public process The International Port of Coos Bay commissioners sure did miss an opportunity to do the right thing the other night. The unanimous vote to join the proposed South Coast Community Foundation completely disregarded something more important, more significant, more divisive than the LNG issue, the Williams’ pipeline, or the compositions of the SCCF’s directors. Something way, way more important. With its vote, the Port’s commission closed public access to

the foundations business and records. This foundation, if it comes to pass, will filter substantial amounts of the public’s money. Why would any (American) citizen vote to exclude its citizenry from the workings of the proposed foundation? I can think of no justifiable reason to do so. At best, closing the foundations business meetings and records to the public comes across as sneaky. This creates controversy we simply do not need. It’s an easy one to make go away. Send the SCCF foundation proposal back where it came. Direct its authors to change the bylaws to adhere and conform to Oregon Public Records Law. This action alone can create some trust and, it seems to me, goodwill and harmony. Oregon’s Public Records Law is a good one. And, It’s good for a reason. Eura M. Washburn Coos Bay

CEP ignores values in SDAT vision BY MARY GEDDRY It’s been four years since the American Institute of Architects Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) called for a collaborative, countywide dialog to envision the types of communities we want. “Developing new city and regional plans will take time and should not be rushed; nevertheless, visioning should begin right away …” wrote the team in its final report. Defining sustainability as an integrated system that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations …” the team urged civic leaders to facilitate these discussions immediately. Facing imminent decisions that will forever alter their neighborhoods, citizens across the country are engaging in a visioning process much like that recommended by the SDAT. More than 160 municipalities and counties have asserted their right to self-governance, enacting rights-based ordinances that enable them to develop their idealized community born out of these discussions and even to protect them from state and federal laws that might otherwise circumvent these choices. Do we want big box stores? Should we allow factory farms nearby or allow fields of geneticrops to modified cally contaminate our organic farms? Do we want mining, sewage sludge, fracking or privatized

Your Views water in our county? Should we pay companies to move here by offering tax breaks, or do we value our resources and services enough to expect everyone to pay their fair share? Do short-term gains justify the cost of unsustainable energy and environmental policies? Does our community want to establish a renewable energy economy and promote green jobs? Once we have designed and envisioned the communities we want, how do we achieve those goals? Other communities have dealt with and found collaborative solutions to questions just like these. And as the SDAT cautioned, a “broader, more inclusive approach to sustainability will result in more effective outcomes and avoid conflicts between narrow agendas...” The team also noted “that some local groups have attempted to hijack the mantle of sustainability in order to pursue narrower agendas…” There is no greater embodiment of this observation than the Community so-called Enhancement Plan. The plan, by distributing future property taxes from the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal — if it is built — into to two private, nonprofit organizations would effectively privatize

local government. The public has been invited to comment only after-the-fact, and then only on technical details, like how many board members the organizations should have and how they are appointed. The distribution of funds, the plans for economic development and the exclusive focus of that development in the Bay Area and even the very existence of the plan were decided early on without the benefit of an inclusive public process.The conflicts and controversy surrounding the plan since it was first announced are a direct result of excluding the public from the early conceptual stages. “Community success will require everyone’s contribution in the future,” says the SDAT team. “Successful communities have the ability to convene the public for broad conversations about their future” and that ”engaging the broader community more proactively in comprehensive planning, local governments can leverage significant resident support for future policy development and implementation.” Anything less is a failure of leadership. As the SDAT also noted, none of the county’s communities have the individual resources to go it alone. That Coos Bay and North

Bend are attempting to appropriate revenue/service fees from other taxing districts attests to the truth of this statement. City council members justify the windfall to the two cities as good for the entire county, saying, “rising tides float all boats.” But this is just governance by platitude and assumes the best while failing to plan for the unintended consequences. Worse, those most likely to be effected by these consequences, the taxing districts deprived of revenue redirected by the plan, have no voice in the decisions at all. Now more than ever, Coos County needs to engage in an inclusive regional planning process recommended in the SDAT report in order to determine just what type of development our communities really want. Many were disappointed when the SDAT process was stalled after such enthusiastic support from the public. Our elected leaders should facilitate these discussions by inviting everyone to community meetings to “engage in a visioning process that will define a framework for success moving forward.” If they won’t help, we should start these discussions anyway or our fate will be decided by a very few with a decidedly narrow agenda. Mary Geddry blogs at and has written and advocated on issues of tax equity and social and economic justice since 2003.

Court seems likely to block Secret Service case

Boneyard Beer co-owner and brewer Tony Lawrence looks over the Yakima Brewing 40 barrel, 1240-gallon copper kettle brewing tank, which was built in 1990, and recently bought by Boneyard for it’s, Boneyard Beer’s brewing facility under construction in Bend.

Bend craft breweries trying to satisfy demand BEND (AP) — When it’s time to load up the truck each morning, Tony Lawrence of Boneyard Beer struggles with the same question: “Who’s getting the beer?� The challenge, Lawrence said, is allocating enough beer for all the customers in Boneyard’s distribution area, essentially Seattle to Eugene. Last year, the brewery had to pull out of Southern Oregon because it couldn’t keep up with demand, said Lawrence, partner and brewmaster for the nearly 4year-old brewery. “There’s so many growler

filling stations and new pubs opening, and they all think they should have access to this product, but unfortunately there’s not enough product to go around,� he said. It’s the continuing demand for craft beer, in part, that led Damon Runberg, regional economist for the Oregon Employment Department, to say Oregon, apparently, is not “overbeered.� Over the last four years, the number of beer makers in Central Oregon has grown nearly fourfold, and Runberg estimated that statewide,

Oregon had 188 brewing establishments as of summer 2013. “Many question the long-term viability of breweries and wonder whether or not there is a brewery bubble forming,� Runberg wrote in a March 11 report. “This does not seem to be the case.� have brewers Craft increased their market share by taking some away from the large domestic brewers, Runberg wrote, citing Beer Institute figures. The buy local movement has also helped boost craft brewing, he stated, along with beerrelated tourism.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court appeared likely Wednesday to block a group of protesters from bringing free-speech claims against two Secret Service agents who were guarding President George W. Bush during a 2004 visit to Oregon. The court’s liberal justices seemed just as reluctant as the conservatives to find that the agents violated the protesters’ First Amendment rights by moving them farther away from the president while allowing a separate group of pro-Bush demonstrators to stay a bit closer. The protesters claim they were moved for loudly expressing their opinions while Bush was having dinner at an outdoor patio and not for any genuine security reasons. Deputy Solicitor General Ian Gershengorn argued that agents who make on-thespot judgments about the president’s security should be shielded from liability. “There are times when we don’t want a reasonable official to hesitate before he acts and nowhere is that more important than when the specter of presidential assassination is in order,� Gershengorn told the justices. Justice Antonin Scalia said if there was any objective reason at all for the agents to move protesters to improve security, then “it doesn’t matter whether there was any intent to suppress antiBush demonstrators.� But Steven Wilker, attorney for the protesters, said his clients were moved solely for expressing their opinions and not for valid security reasons. He said the protesters should be allowed to move ahead with their lawsuit because they presented a valid claim of “viewpoint discrimination� under the First Amendment. At issue is whether the Secret Service agents should be granted qualified immunity from the lawsuit. Law enforcement agents are typi-

cally shielded from liability while performing their official duties. But lawsuits are allowed if the officials’ conduct violates clearly established constitutional law. The dispute began shortly after Bush made a campaign stop in Oregon in the final weeks of his 2004 re-election campaign. At the last minute, the president decided to have dinner in Jacksonville, at an outdoor patio at the Jacksonville Inn. Secret Service agents cleared the area immediately around the inn, but initially left the protesters in place. Fifteen minutes after Bush’s dinner began, however, the agents ordered police to move the anti-Bush protesters two blocks further away from the inn, placing them at a greater distance from the president than the pro-Bush demonstrators. The agents told police they did not want anyone “within handgun or explosive range of the President.� The protesters claim the difference in where the two groups were allowed to stand shows that they were moved for expressing their opinions in clear violation of their constitutional rights. They say the agents’ explanation doesn’t ring true because the pro-Bush demonstrators were not moved and other guests of the inn were not screened or removed for weapons. A federal district court found enough evidence for the case to proceed and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed, though eight judges on the appeals court issued a strong dissent. Justice Elena Kagan asked Wilker if he would concede that a reasonable officer could look at a map of where the protesters were moved and say that it appeared to be a reasonable security measure. Wilker agreed that was “a possible conclusion.� “It seems to me there either is or isn’t a valid security interest,� Kagan said.

Safety deposit box contents to be auctioned (AP) — MEDFORD Unclaimed property from abandoned safety deposit boxes across the state will be up for bid next week in southern Oregon. The property comes from hundreds of abandoned safety deposit boxes. A safety deposit box is considered abandoned if the owner fails to make rental payments or can’t be found for two years. Then banks and other financial institutions turn over unclaimed contents to the state. Among the items to be auctioned off in White City include silver bars, antique tools and a $20 bill from the Confederacy. The Mail Tribune and Statesman Journal newspapers report that auction proceeds will be kept by the state in case the box owners ever come forward. Interest from the proceeds will be distributed to schools. The auction starts at 9 a.m. Friday, April 4.

Lottery, strip club end deal amid investigation SALEM (AP) — A Beaverton strip club has

agreed to end its contract with the Oregon Lottery amid an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse and prostitution involving an underage girl. A Lottery spokesman says Stars Cabaret & Steak House has not admitted any wrongdoing and the company expects to be vindicated. Lottery Director Jack Roberts said in a statement that even though the criminal investigation is not over, the agency decided there is “sufficient basis� to end its contract. Contracts at three other Starts Cabaret locations are not affected, and Roberts did not rule out the Lottery someday returning to the Beaverton location.

Study: 23 percent of Oregon kids in poverty PORTLAND (AP) — An annual study of child wellbeing shows about 23 percent of Oregon children live in poverty. The Oregonian reports that’s a decline from last year’s 23.6 percent poverty rate, but a bit higher than the

STATE D I G E S T national average of 22.6 percent. The 2014 Progress Report from Children First for Oregon set the poverty level at $23,050 for a family of four. Among other findings, Oregon ranks 30th in the nation for the percentage of children with health insurance. It also has a higher-than-average rate of children entering foster care.

30 small earthquakes on Mount Hood PORTLAND (AP) — Oregon state geologists say they’ve been watching a recent swarm of small earthquakes on Mount Hood. KGW-TV reports the quakes started Sunday evening and have been occurring right beneath Government Camp.

Greg Hartman, confirmed the settlement to The Oregonian on Wednesday. He declined to offer the settlement amount. However, one of the unions — American Federation of TeachersOregon — reported receiving nearly $600,000. The unions claimed Sizemore and Parks conspired to set up a sham charitable organization to hide money used to gather signatures and promote four ballot measures in 2008, including measures on teacher merit pay and public employee unions. The racketeering complaint sought $18 million in damages, about three times what the unions spent to defeat the measures.

NEWS D I G E S T Cities see growth from energy production WASHINGTON (AP) — America’s energy boom is fueling population growth west of the Mississippi River. New 2013 census information released Thursday shows that 6 of the 10 fastest-growing metropolitan areas and 8 of the 10 fastest-growing counties in the country are located in or near the oil- and gas-rich fields of the Great Plains and Mountain West. More and more oil and gas drilling is being done in those regions, drawing people from around the nation looking for work, the Census Bureau said.

Rescuers deal with heartbreaking work DARRINGTON, Wash. (AP) — As firefighter Jeff McClelland uncovered a body on the moon-like surface that blankets what used to be the community of Oso, he soon realized that the search party had a close connection to the victim: The dead man’s son and brother were among the volunteers scouring the debris field. The relatives sat beside the body as it was zipped into a bag. McClelland found himself overcome with tears. The discovery served as a touching reminder of the deeply emotional work that is playing out in this tight-knit town as rescuers like McClelland search for bodies in the muck and devastation,hoping to at least bring some closure to the relatives and friends of those who have not been found.

Ukraine predicts ‘yes’ vote in UN on its unity UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Ukraine is predicting that the U.N. General Assembly will adopt a resolution Thursday reaffirming the country’s territorial integrity and calling the referendum that led to Russia’s annexation of its Crimean Peninsula illegal. Ukraine’s U.N. Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev said told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the resolution has “several dozen” co-sponsors and support from democratic countries around the world — but wouldn’t predict how many of them might vote “yes.”

Jet search cut short; satellites spot objects PERTH, Australia (AP) — Hints about the lost Malaysian jetliner piled up Thursday, but there was precious little chance to track them down. Bad weather cut short the hunt for possible debris fields from the aircraft as satellite data revealed hundreds more objects that might be wreckage. Not one piece of debris has been recovered from the plane that went down in the southern Indian Ocean on March 8. For relatives of the 239 people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, it was yet another agonizing day of waiting.

Obama, Francis find common ground, sharp divisions VATICAN CITY (AP) — Sharp differences over abortion and birth control surfaced as President Barack Obama held his first meeting Thursday with Pope Francis, even as the president sought to emphasize common ground issues like economic inequality during a muchanticipated Vatican visit. After Obama’s hourlong audience with the pope, the Vatican said discussions centered on questions of “particular relevance for the church in that country, such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection” — issues that have fueled divisions between Obama and Catholics in the U.S. But the Vatican statement also said the leaders discussed immigration reform, touching on an issue where Obama has largely enjoyed the support of America’s many Hispanic Catholics. Obama, for his part, emerged visibly energized from his audience with the pope, during which he expressed his great admiration and invited him to visit the White House. “It is a great honor. I’m a great admirer,” Obama said after greeting the pope with a slight bow as they shook hands. “Thank you so much

U.S. President Barack Obama meets with Pope Francis on Thursday at the Vatican. for receiving me.” Although Obama and the church remain deeply split over social issues, Obama considers the pontiff a kindred spirit on issues of inequality, and their private meeting in the Papal Library ran longer than scheduled. After they emerged to cameras, Francis presented Obama with a copy of his papal mission statement decrying a global economic system that excludes the poor. Obama said he will keep it in the Oval Office. “You know, I actually will

probably read this when I’m in the Oval Office, when I am deeply frustrated and I am sure it will give me strength and will calm me down,” Obama said. “I hope,” the pope responded. The president and pope both appeared tense at the start of the audience, when they initially greeted one another, but then were all smiles by the end of the meeting and seemed to have found a rapport, though they spoke through interpreters. Obama arrived at the Vatican amid all the pomp

and tradition of the Catholic Church, making his way in a long, slow procession through the hallways of the Apostolic Palace led by colorful Swiss Guards and accompanied by ceremonial attendants. The two greeted one another in the Small Throne Room, before sitting across from one another at the pope’s desk, as is custom for a papal audience. Obama presented the pope with a seed chest with fruit and vegetable seeds used in the White House garden, mentioning that he under-

$270M chocolate plant proof of US’s sweet tooth TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Americans aren’t losing their taste for chocolate. Need proof? Look to Kansas, where candy giant Mars Inc. is opening its first new plant in 35 years to churn out millions of chocolate bars and other sweets every day. Company officials are throwing a grand opening Thursday for the sprawling, $270 million chocolate plant — which they say exists mostly to meet U.S. demand for its M&M’s- and Snickers-brand candy. The plant, built south of Topeka, will be able to produce 14 million bite-sized Snickers each day, as well as 39 million M&M’s, enough to fill 1.5 million fun-sized packs. “It’s just unbelievable, the production,” said Topeka Mayor Larry Wolgast, who

keeps a dispenser of peanut M&M’s on his desk at City Hall. It’s a sweet deal for state and local officials, too. The 500,000-square-foot facility is bringing about 200 jobs to the Topeka area, and the company plans to open a store downtown for several weeks. Local officials, who will join the company at the grand opening, also are earning the right to brag that Topeka’s work force, central location and accessible site enabled the region to win the plant over several dozen other communities. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, who favors almond M&M’s, sees it as fitting that many Americans will get their favorite snacks from the Heartland. Matt Hudak, who follows

the U.S. market for “impulse” foods as an analyst for market researcher Euromonitor International,said candy makers can expect to see annual growth in chocolate sales stay above 3 percent, making chocolate “a continual bright spot.” He also said Mars has been good at introducing new products, such as pretzel M&Ms and bite-sized Snickers to keep consumers interested. Even in uncertain economic times, he said, an remains chocolate “affordable luxury.” “There is little reason to suggest that, all of a sudden in the U.S., people will start to dislike chocolate,” he said. The new chocolate factory is a sign that Mars officials are well aware of the trend and are bullish about future sales.

Egypt army chief will run for president CAIRO (AP) — Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the Egyptian military chief who last summer removed the elected Islamist president, has announced that he will run for president in elections expected next month, putting him on an apparent track to lead a nation beleaguered by ongoing turmoil and violence, a broken political order, a dilapidated economy and concerns over the chances for building a democracy. Wearing his military fatigues in a nationally televised speech, el-Sissi announced late on Wednesday he was resigning from the armed forces — a required step since only civilians can run for president. He declared that it was the last time he would wear his uniform because he was stepping down to run president and continue to defend the country. He said he was “answering the demand of a wide range of Egyptians.”

stands the pope is opening the gardens at the papal summer residence to the public. The chest was inscribed with the date of their meeting and custom-made of leather and reclaimed wood from the Baltimore Basilica — one of the oldest Catholic cathedrals in the U.S. “If you have a chance to come to the White House, we can show you our garden as well,” Obama said. “Why not?” the pope responded in his native Spanish. Although the Vatican has not yet confirmed the trip, it is likely that Francis will travel to the U.S. in September 2015 for the church’s World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. Popes have attended these family celebrations five of the past seven times they have been held, and Francis has put family issues at the forefront of his agenda. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has extended a formal and open invitation to the pope to address Congress when he visits the United States. As Obama departed, he asked the pope, “Please pray for me and my family.” It was an echo of how Francis usually ends his meetings, asking for people to pray for him.

the mosquito issue. In contrast, last week, while a few people stood outside with signs disparaging the USFWS, most people calmly drifted though and spoke with representatives, and looked at diagrams and descriptions taped to the wall. “We appreciated the opportunity to hear from folks and appreciated people coming out,” said Megan Nagel, public affairs officer for the Pacific Region of USFWS, who was at the open house. Rick Hallmark, Coos Environmental County Health program manager, said he will take on the mosquito abatement role Health former that Department director Nikki

Zogg vacated last month. Hallmark said the county was planning to hire someone to monitor the marsh and the mosquito maturation process and keep the county informed. Tuesday, the Coos County commissioners voted to award a contract for mosquito control service to Vector Disease Control International. Melissa Commissioner Cribbins said they approved $96,000. USFWS will reimburse up to $100,000, she said. Hallmark said the USFWS is allowing public comment on two options. The first would be to have no mosquito abatement, he said. “The second is to essen-

tially allow the county to monitor and provide treatment if it looks like it’s going to be a nuisance in the community,” Hallmark said.

exception, they were able to do that. The final plan does include the use of historical plaques, a statue of Simpson, and some flag poles. It does not include any of the water features that were suggested. It does take the city’s historic ties to the bay into account, however, by including the front of a ship that will utilize the elevation of that area to be able to get a good view of the waterfront. The estimated cost of a little over $535,000 includes

about $45,000 in contingency funds, about $50,000 for architecture/engineering, and an estimated $25,000 for a full sized statue of Louis Simpson. The actual statue is not part of the project, but was included for budgetary purposes. “There are also design features that are in place to help pedestrians safely navigate the area,” O’Connor said. “That helps set this apart. It will be a good addition to the downtown area.” The project will open to public bidding next week, with bids to be opened during the week of April 22. A bid is expected to be awarded during the last week of April. Joe Slack, with HGE, is the architect and, O’Connor says, he will handle the process for the city.

broad range of senior Russian officials. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Wednesday that both sides were discussing ways to get a bill out of Congress as soon as possible. Asked whether he expected problems reconciling the two bills, Boehner said: “You never know. But there’s an awful lot of coop-

eration and discussion underway to try to avoid that.” Rep. Ed Royce, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said he hoped the Senate would embrace the House bill without requiring negotiations to work out differences. “Our goal is not to go to conference because of the urgency

of the situation,” Royce, RCalif., said. The Ukraine aid bill gained momentum this week after Democrats backed down and stripped International Monetary Fund reform language from the bill. The move signaled a retreat for the Democrats and the Obama administration.

Butler leads the nation The first time I saw Mitchell Butler race, he was a seventhgrader. Butler was competing in the middle school cross country state championships at Bullards Beach State Park and a bunch of people were talking about this fast kid from Florence. He lived up to the billing, winning that 3,000-meter race in 10 minutes and 49 seconds. It was clear then that he had a chance to be special. And he has been. SPORTS During high school, Butler has been part of two state champion cross country teams and another in track and field for Siuslaw. If he hadn’t collapsed near JOHN the finish line as G UNTHER a freshman, he also would have been a top-five state finisher all four years in cross country, to go with several state track and field medals. The one thing missing from his resume was an individual state championship, something he accomplished last fall, when he out-kicked teammate and training partner Mack Marbas at Lane Community College. Siuslaw always has had a strong team concept, and Butler has celebrated the successes of his teammates all through high school, including when Matthew Campbell beat him for the state cross country title his junior year. He had a sheer look of joy when he finally had a chance to stand on the top of the podium last fall. Butler followed his cross country breakthrough with a schedule change. He had been a basketball player every year — his dad, Jack, is Siuslaw’s head coach — but this school year, he skipped out on the sport. I saw his dad a few weeks ago after the South Coast All-Star game. Jack said Mitchell would have made the Vikings’ basketball team a lot better, but he understood Mitchell’s choice to focus on track through the winter. That decision paid unexpected dividends this week. Butler and Marbas competed as unattached athletes in the University of Oregon Preview Meet at Hayward Field, running the 3,000 meters in a field of mostly current and former college runners. Butler crossed the finish line in 21st place. But his time of 8:37.39 was the fastest for a high-schooler in the nation this year, according to the track website Siuslaw has had a lot of great athletes in a lot of events, but never before had a national leader at any time, coach Chris Johnson said. Looking back to that 2008 race, I found a bunch of familiar names. Several became great athletes, not all in cross country. For the boys, ninth place that day was Justin Angove, who became a state champion hurdler for Bandon High School. Crossing the line 40th was Matt Miranda, who missed running altogether in high school as a football, basketball and baseball player for Coquille. The same goes for Gold Beach stars Garrett Litterell (football, basketball and baseball) and Derek Carl (all-state in football and state champion in wrestling). The girls race also included a bunch of people who later went on to success in high school. Claire Ledig won a state track title for Bandon, while Zenora Burris had a good career in cross country and tennis for North Bend in addition to earning valedictorian honors and being one of the most cerebral athletes I have interviewed, which I consider a good thing. Two Sunset runners finished nearly side by side that day. In 20th place was Natalie Hill, who touched people worldwide as she fought a courageous battle with cancer. A couple of steps behind her was Shaylen Crook, who won the state title a few days after Natalie died last fall. The list of runners from that day goes on and on — far too many for this space. Congratulations, Mitchell, and thanks for giving me a good excuse to look back.


The Associated Press

Indiana forward Paul George hangs on the rim after dunking in front of Miami Heat forward LeBron James during the second half Wednesday. The Pacers won 84-83.

Pacers win battle of East’s beasts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Pacers and Heat were in no mood to talk about the playoffs Wednesday night. It was about the only thing they agreed on. Indiana charged back from a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit, handing the two-time defending champs an 84-83 loss that could force them to return to Indianapolis for a possible seventh game in the playoffs. “We’re going to be one or two (seed), no matter what happened this game,” Miami’s LeBron James said after a 38-point night. “So you know, it means nothing.” The Pacers (52-20), who clinched a second straight Central Division title, now have a clear path to home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference. With 10 games to go, the NBA’s best home team has four at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and only five against teams with a winning record. Miami (48-22) plays five winning teams in its last 12 and seven at home — including Round 4 with the Pacers on April 11. But the Heat are 7-8 in March, were unable to protect two leads in the fourth quarter and finished the game with Dwayne Wade icing his right hamstring. Indiana, meanwhile, is still trying to get back in rhythm. “This is a game that will hopefully get us back on track. It’s one game,” said Paul George,

who had 23 points to help the Pacers end a twogame losing streak. “We have to go back there and play one more, we have to look at it like that. But this is one step closer to playing good basketball to end this year.” Physical basketball, too. It was the rare grudge match that actually lived up to its billing. Before the game, the teams chided one another with dueling comments. Afterward, nobody was ready to make up. And in between, the action got downright nasty. James needed a cotton swab in his nose to keep playing in the fourth quarter after getting whacked in the face. Pacers center Roy Hibbert scored 21 points and finished the game despite taking an elbow to the face that left him so groggy he didn’t even remember getting hit. James and George both wound up taking spills into basket supports, and Lance Stephenson was ejected midway through the fourth quarter after picking up his second technical foul for celebrating a basket. The angry Stephenson waved his hand at the ref and after leaving the court, threw a towel and kicked a door. Coach Frank Vogel was not amused with his guard, saying he had a stern talk with the budding star before he went home. Nobody had it rougher than James, who

missed a late 3-pointer that could have given Miami the lead and was treated like anything but royalty. Chris Bosh also missed a potential winning 3 as the buzzer sounded. Despite the loss, the Heat clinched first in the Southeast Division when Washington lost to Phoenix. “It is what it is, they ref the game, we play it,” James said. The four-time MVP also had eight rebounds, five assists, was 9 of 15 from the field and 14 of 15 from the free throw line. The problem: James also had six turnovers, Wade had six more turnovers and Miami managed only one basket over the final 3:23. James and Bosh both missed late jumpers that would have given Miami the lead, the last an airball by Bosh from just right of the top of the key as time expired. “Unfortunately, that was what I diagrammed,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “It probably wasn’t the best call. It might have been a little too gunslinger on my part. I just wanted an open shot.” They were so hard to come by Wednesday night that James was even called for a flagrant foul when he drove to the basket and sent the 7foot-2, 290-pound Hibbert crashing to the ground. When Hibbert got up, he stumbled. Eventually he had to leave the court to change his blood-spattered jersey, but he refused to sit against the Heat.

Board: Northwestern players can unionize CHICAGO (AP) — In a stunning ruling that could revolutionize a college sports industry worth billions of dollars and have dramatic repercussions at schools coast to coast, a federal agency said Wednesday that football players at Northwestern University can create the nation’s first union of college athletes. The decision by a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board answered the question at the heart of the debate over the unionization bid: Are football players who receive full scholarships to the Big Ten school considered employees under federal law, thereby allowing them to unionize? Peter Sung Ohr, the NLRB regional director, said in a 24-page decision that the players “fall squarely” within the broad definition of employee. Pro-union activists cheered as they learned of the ruling. “It’s like preparing so long for a

designated president of Northwestern’s would-be football players’ union.

The ruling addresses a unique situation in American college sports, where the tradition of college competition has created a system that generates billions but relies on players who are not paid. In other countries, elite youth athletes turn pro as teens, but college sports are small-time club affairs. Under U.S. law, an employee is regarded as someone who, among other things, receives compensation for a service and is under the strict, direct control of managers. In the case of the Northwestern players, coaches are the managers and scholarships are a form of compensation, Ohr concluded. The Evanston, Ill., university argued that college athletes, as students, do not fit in the same category as factory workers, truck drivers and other unionized workers. The school announced plans to appeal to labor authorities in Washington, D.C.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN ANTONIO — Tim Duncan had 29 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, and San Antonio overcame a fourth-quarter collapse to beat Denver 108-103 for its 15th straight victory Wednesday. Danny Green scored 16 points before leaving with a foot injury early in the second half. Tiago Splitter, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili had 10 points apiece for San Antonio (5516), which maintained the league’s best record. Aaron Brooks scored 25 points and Kenneth Faried had 24 points, including 15 points in a frenzied final quarter for Denver. Timofey Mozgov added 14 points and 11 rebounds and Quincy Miller had 11 points. After leading by as many as 24 points and by 20 midway through the third quarter, San Antonio needed Duncan’s late heroics to preserve its win streak. Denver went on a 34-20 run in the final 11 minutes. Knicks 107, Kings 99: Carmelo Anthony scored 36 points, J.R. Smith added 29 points and New York held off a furious rally to beat Sacramento and move a game closer to a playoff berth. A night after a lackluster 127-96 loss at the Los Angeles Lakers, the Knicks avoided a monumental collapse to another one of the Western Conference’s worst teams. New York led by 24 in the third quarter before Sacramento surged back, and the Knicks needed a scintillating shooting performance from Anthony and Smith to snap a two-game skid. New York (30-42) is two games behind Atlanta for the

Minnesota scored 32 points off 26 Hawks turnovers and blew the game open in the second half. Paul Millsap had 12 points and 10 rebounds for Atlanta, which has lost four straight and has the New York Knicks right in their rearview mirror for the eighth and final playoff spot.

Cavaliers 97, Pistons 96: Dion Waiters hit a contested baseline jumper at the buzzer to complete a rally that lifted Cleveland over the Detroit. The Pistons led 82-66 going into the fourth quarter, but once again collapsed down the stretch. Matt Dellavedova led Cleveland with a career-high 21 points, Waiters had 18 and Jack 17. Bobcats 116, Nets 111, OT: Al Jefferson scored 35 points, Kemba Walker had a double-double and the Charlotte Bobcats defeated the Brooklyn Nets 116-111 in overtime Wednesday night for their 10th victory at home in the last 12 games. Walker had 20 points and 12 assists and Chris DouglasRoberts had 16 points, including two big jump shots in overtime.

Asado sets record for short program SAITAMA, Japan (AP) — Mao Asada of Japan set a world record on Thursday to finish first in the short program at the World Figure Skating Championships. Skating to Chopin’s Nocturne, Asada hit her trademark triple axel at the start of her routine and completed all her remaining jumps to finish with 78.66 points, surpassing the previous record of 78.50 set by Yuna Kim at the Vancouver Olympics. “As the last competition of this season, I am happy to skate the best short program,” said Asada, a two-time world champion. “My mission here is to perform both programs perfect so already half is done and tomorrow I want to focus on showing everything I have practiced.” Carolina Kostner of Italy was second with 77.24 points followed by Julia

RECAP Taft tops Pirates in softball game From Page B1 At bat after at bat, Carpenter said his team watched too many strikes and swung at too many balls. He also said they got down in the count quickly and forced themselves to be impatient because of it. Marshfield scored single runs in the first two innings and led 2-0 until Taft got four runs in the third. Starting pitcher Tyler Campbell went the entire seven innings for the Pirates, allowing only one walk and six hits, and pitched “well enough to win” by his coach’s estimation. But pitching isn’t the problem for Carpenter and the Pirates heading into league play. “We got to get back in the cage,” Carpenter said. “We just got to keep practicing and get to work to learn from it. Hopefully we’ll get it out of our system by Douglas.” Marshfield begins the Far West League schedule at home next Tuesday against Douglas. Panthers split at PK Park: Gold Beach split a doubleheader at PK Park on

Lipnitskaia of Russia, who had 74.54 points. Kim, the defending champion, has retired and Olympic gold medalist Adelina Sotnikova of Russia isn’t competing at the worlds. “I was very nervous,” Kostner said. “But this is my 13th world championship so I just kept telling myself not to be nervous.” Akiko Suzuki, who is retiring after this event, was fourth with 71.02 points. Gracie Gold of the United States was fifth followed by compatriot Ashley Wagner. Earlier, Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany won the pairs event, claiming their fifth title in the event they have dominated since 2008. Skating to music from “The Nutcracker,” the defending champions were solid on all their elements and

Wednesday. The Panthers started wth a 12-1 loss to Knappa but beat Sheridan 54 in the second half of the twin bill. Gold Beach didn’t get back home until 2 a.m. so details on the games were not available. Tigers lose two: Bandon dropped both its games in the Umpqua Valley Christian tournament Tuesday, with the short-handed Tigers struggling without four senior starters who took a trip to Hawaii for spring break. Monroe beat Bandon 30-7 and UVC topped the Tigers 14-4. The Tigers did get good experience for a few firstyear players thrust into unusual spots in the lineup, but along the way committed 18 errors in the first game. Against Monroe, Bandon scored all its runs in the second inning. Shawn Hammonds had a single his first at-bat of the season and Tristan Green walked his first time up and then hit a single. “It was good to see the young kids doing that,” Bandon coach Jay Ferrell said. In the second game, the entire team played better and Coleton Jackson pitched a great game, Ferrell said. Bandon extended the contest to six innings, with Jackson striking out six and walking

earned 224.88 points to beat Russia’s Olympic silver medalists Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov, who had 215.92 points. “A fifth title is quite amazing,” Szolkowy said. “We did a very good performance yesterday and were very good today.” Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford were third with 210.84 points, edging fellow Canadians Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch into fourth. Savchenko and Szolkowy, who won the Olympic bronze in 2010 and 2014, have been together since August of 2003 and will split up after the world championships. “I can hardly believe it is over now. It feels very strange,” Savchenko said. “To be honest, it felt like I was skating in an exhibition gala.”

two. At the plate, Quinn Hamblin had a double and two walks and scored two runs. Kohl Watson, who just joined the team this week after the state dance championships, had a single and stolen base and played a bigger role in the field. “He stepped in and did a great job,” Ferrell said. “He played shorstop the first game and caught the second game. He only had two passed balls.” The sophomore moved to Bandon this school year from California. “He is going to be an asset for the rest of the season,” Ferrell said. While the Tigers lost, Ferrell said he saw a lot of value in the trip. “We learned a lot about our team yesterday,” he said Wednesday. “Our new guys learned a lot about the game yesterday.”

SOFTBALL Taft 13, Marshfield 3: Marshfield’s softball team also fell to Taft in Lincoln City on Wednesday and finished off their spring break road trip with a 1-3 record. The Pirates beat Sisters Tuesday but lost to both Ridgeview and Roosevelt on Monday. On Wednesday, a five-run fourth inning fueled by back-

to-back-to-back doubles gave Taft a 10-2 lead that effectively sank the Pirates. Marshfield left six batters on base but got some production at the plate from Jessica Kohl, who had a pair of singles. Khalani Hoyer had the Pirates’ only extra base hit with a triple. “I thought we played offensively really well,” Marshfield head coach Brooke Toy said. “I think we can come out and play better then we did today.” Marshfield had some issues on defense, giving up five errors on the day. Another challenge was getting the players ready after a long trip Wednesday morning. Marshfield traveled four hours from Bend to Lincoln City before the game, and Toy said it’s something Marshfield has to be able to handle. “It’s not something to make as an excuse,” Toy said. “I think it’s kind of an eye opener for the girls. We’re gonna have to travel. We have long drives — like two and a half hours to Brookings — we have to do and they need to mentally prepare on the bus. (Traveling) is something we’ll have to go through all season.” Marshfield begins the Far West League with one of those trips, traveling to Douglas on Tuesday.

Instead, the longtime Buffalo Bills star will likely first be treated with chemotherapy and radiation, according to a statement from Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Manhattan coach didn’t earn college degree TAMPA, Fla. — Steve Masiello’s promising coaching career is in limbo after his deal with South Florida fell apart because he doesn’t have a college diploma. Manhattan College said that it had placed him on leave while Masiello is “reviewing his degree status.” South Florida confirmed that the school had an agreement in principle to lure Masiello away from Manhattan, but that the contract was contingent on “a verification of credentials.” USF requires its basketball coach to have at least a bachelor’s degree. The 39year-old Masiello did not graduate after attending Kentucky, where he played for Rick Pitino and Tubby Smith from 1996-2000.

BASEBALL Kershaw won’t start for Dodgers on Sunday LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw will miss his scheduled start for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the San Diego Padres this weekend because of an inflamed muscle in his back.

NEW YORK — Forbes ranks the New York Yankees as baseball’s most valuable team for the 17th straight year and lists the Tampa Bay Rays with the lowest valuation. Forbes estimates the Yankees are worth $2.5 billion, up 9 percent from last year. The Dodgers are next at $2 billion, a 24 percent hike and matching their actual sale price in 2012. Boston was third at $1.5 billion, followed by the Chicago Cubs ($1.2 billion), San Francisco ($1 billion) and Philadelphia ($975 million). At the bottom were the Rays ($485 million), Kansas City ($490 million), Oakland ($495 million) and Miami ($500 million). Major League Baseball’s average team value rose 9 percent to $811 million. Forbes says values rose primarily because of increased media rights fees.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL MAC will boot UMass after 2015 season The Mid-American and Conference Massachusetts football will part ways after the 2015 season. The MAC has invoked a clause in its contract with UMass, triggered when Temple left the league in 2012, giving the school a choice between full membership and exiting the conference in two years. UMass chose to end the relationship with the MAC and continue to be a member of the Atlantic 10 in most sports. UMass made the move up from FCS to FBS in 2012 and joined the MAC. UMass has gone 2-22 in its two seasons as an FBS program, 2-14 in the MAC. UMass athletic director John McCutcheon says the school remains “committed

Hamlin had metal in his eye CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A small piece of metal in his eye, and not a sinus infection, caused Denny Hamlin to miss last week’s race at California. Hamlin was not medically cleared to race last Sunday by doctors in the infield care center at Auto Club Speedway. He had visited the care center on Saturday and Sunday complaining of an irritation to his eye, and it was determined at the track that it was related to a recent sinus infection Hamlin had suffered. Hamlin was referred to a local hospital for further evaluation, and once there, “a small piece of metal was found to be in Hamlin’s eye,” Joe Gibbs Racing said in a statement Wednesday. The metal was removed and JGR said “Hamlin felt immediate improvement.” By then, the race at Fontana had already started and replacement driver Sam Hornish Jr. was behind the wheel of Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota. Hamlin underwent further testing in California before he was cleared to fly home to North Carolina. He was evaluated in Charlotte on Monday and again on Wednesday, when it was determined he had no lingering issues with his vision and is cleared to race this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. Hamlin has four career victories at Martinsville and an average finish of eighth. The timeline of Hamlin’s diagnosis and revelation it was a piece of metal in

NASCAR Driver Denny Hamlin, center, signs autographs before practice for the Sprint Cup series race at Bristol Motor Speedway on March 14. Hamlin will be racing again this weekend at Martinsville Speedway after missing last week’s race in California. his eye and not a sinus infection comes a day after Dale Earnhardt Jr. called on NASCAR to release information regarding Hamlin not being cleared to race at California. Earnhardt, during an appearance Tuesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, questioned why there had been no official NASCAR statement or further explanation from Hamlin on what happened. He was particularly interested because it is so unusual for a driver to be parked shortly before a race is about to begin. “I’m worried the perception is bad for NASCAR and the perception is bad for Denny,” Earnhardt said. “If Denny didn’t race because his vision is blurred and he had a sinus infection, NASCAR should put out a release and say, ‘This is the timeline of the events and this is why we made this choice and this is the protocol for going forward.’ “That answers everybody’s ques-

tions. Don’t you have questions? I have questions. We shouldn’t have questions. We should all feel pretty comfortable with what happened.” Earnhardt missed two races in 2012 after he suffered his second concussion in six weeks. He drove for weeks following the first concussion, which occurred while testing at Kansas Speedway. He was cleared to drive following that crash, and the concussion was discovered after he wrecked again at Talladega. “If Denny did everything right, that’s good to know,” he said. “Why NASCAR did the things they did and the timeline, it would be good to know those things because the drivers are all curious and the fans are curious. Information is moving around. It just doesn’t need to be going on. We should all know what happened and know why it happened and be done with it and not have to worry about it.”

Supporters of the union bid argued that the university ultimately treats football as more important than academics for scholarship players. Ohr sided with the players. “The record makes clear that the employer’s scholarship players are identified and recruited in the first instance because of their football prowess and not because of their academic achievement in high school,” Ohr wrote. He also noted that among the evidence presented by Northwestern, “no examples were provided of scholarship players being permitted to miss entire practices and/or games to attend their studies.” The ruling described how the life of a Northwestern football player is far more regimented than that of a typical student, down to requirements about what they can eat and whether they can live off campus or purchase a car. At times, players put 50 or 60 hours a week into football, Ohr added. Alan Cubbage, Northwestern’s vice president for university relations, said in a statement that while the school respects “the NLRB process and the regional director’s opinion, we disagree with it.” Huma said scholarship players would vote within 30 days on whether to formally authorize the College

Athletes Players Association, or CAPA, to represent them. The specific goals of CAPA include guaranteeing coverage of sports-related medical expenses for current and former players, reducing head injuries and potentially letting players pursue commercial sponsorships. Critics have argued that giving college athletes employee status and allowing them to unionize could hurt college sports in numerous ways, including raising the prospect of strikes by disgruntled players or lockouts by athletic departments. For now, the push is to uniox nize athletes at private schools, such as Northwestern, because the federal labor agency does not have jurisdiction over public universities. But Huma said Wednesday’s decision is the “first domino to fall” and that teams at schools — both public and private — could eventually follow the Wildcats’ lead. Outgoing Wildcats quarterback Kain Colter took a leading role in establishing CAPA. The United Steelworkers union has been footing the legal bills. Colter, who has entered the NFL draft, said nearly all of the 85 scholarship players on the Wildcats roster backed the union bid, though only he expressed his support publicly. He said the No. 1 reason to unionize was to ensure injured players have their medical needs met.

Car won’t start in damp weather Dear Tom and Ray: In January, the water pump went out on my 2001 Dakota (V-6 engine). Everything under the hood got soaked with coolant. I had the water pump and all the hoses replaced, as well as the drive belt. Now when there is very foggy or damp weather and the truck has been sitting for a day or more, it won’t start. After a few hours, when the temperature rises a bit and the air moisture is reduced, it will start and run fine. On one occasion, I hit a small puddle in the road, and the engine quit. After about 10 minutes, it started again. Is there a sensor that will cut the engine off if it gets damp? Does the “catalyst system efficiency” have anything to do with this problem? What do I need to replace to fix the problem? — Bob RAY: You need to move to where there’s a drought, Bob. Have you considered Death Valley? TOM: I don’t think your problem has anything to do with your water pump failure or the eruption of Old Faithful under the hood that came with it. I think it is a faulty sensor problem. RAY: My guess would be the crank angle sensor. On your truck, that’s located on or around the transmission belt housing, which makes it vulnerable to moisture and splashing water. T O M : As the name implies, the crank angle sensor measures the position and speed of the crankshaft, and sends that information to the car’s computer so that all the elements of combustion in each piston can be timed to happen at the right moment. RAY: Knowing where the crankshaft is in its revolution allows the fuel to be injected and the spark to be delivered at just the right millisecond. It allows the valves to open and close precisely when they should. And without that information (when the crank angle sensor does not send a signal) the car defi-

TOM AND RAY MAGLIOZZI nitely won’t start. Or run. TOM: You also ask about the catalyst system efficiency, Bob. That tells me that your check-engine light came on, you looked up the trouble code, found out it meant “catalyst system efficiency” and you had no idea what that meant, but the truck was still running so you ignored it. That about right? RAY: It means your catalytic converter is failing, Bob. That won’t produce the symptoms you describe, but when the converter eventually plugs up completely, it will prevent the car from running at all. TOM: And it’ll certainly prevent you from passing your state emissions inspection soon, if it hasn’t already. R A Y : So you probably need a crank angle sensor and a catalytic converter, Bob. I’d do the sensor first. That way, you know you’ll be able to start the truck on the day you have an appointment to get the converter replaced.

Seat covers are now being made to accommodate side air bags Dear Tom and Ray: I have an ’09 Hyundai Sonata. I finally got around to actually reading through the car manual.

ence — at my, ahem, age. It also keeps the upholstery cleaner. I called the local Hyundai dealer, and he agreed that seat covers will interfere with the air bags. Is that true? What gives, here? — Maurine TOM: Yes, it's true. RAY: Like most cars these days, your Hyundai has side air bags. Those are built right into the seats. TOM: So, in an accident with a side impact, the side air bag on the driver’s side would deploy out of the left side of the driver’s seat back — unless you blocked it, for instance, by covering it with a seat cover. R A Y : Luckily for you, Maurine, the American seatcover industry is not sitting still for this. Using good old Yankee ingenuity, the top seat-cover engineers in the world have developed — get this — seat covers that work with side airbags! TOM: I think they just cut around it or something. RAY: And if you go online and search “seat covers for side air bags,” you’ll find a number of places that will either sell you or make for you any type of seat cover you want that’s modified to work with side air bags. TOM: It’s good to be living in 21st-century America, isn’t it? RAY: And since you obviously love your seat covers (you even took the trouble of writing to a couple of morons like us in hopes of saving them), I think you should treat yourself to a set of the finest, tailor-made sheepskin, side-air-bag-safe seat covers you can find. TOM: Or, if you have a cat, let it sleep in the driver’s seat. If it’s anything like our cat, within a week you’ll have two inches of plush fur to sit on. RAY: By the way, we’re impressed that you managed to wait until now to read your ’09 Hyundai's owner’s manual.
