About 35 residents showed up at Tuesday’s meeting. Several voiced concern over the adoption of the SCCF. Rob Taylor, member of the Coos County Watchdog Group, referred to the process as a “monopoly” and said that it forced entities to be reliant on outside funding. “The SCCF is just a pay-off to the teachers’ unions and the CEP is just a pay-off to big corporations,” Taylor said.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has finalized the draft of its Coastal Multi-Species Management Plan that will be presented to the state Fish and Wildlife Commission on April 25. The plan, which outlines the agencies preservation efforts under the state’s Native Fish Conservation Policy, has drawn fire from the angling community for hatchery release reductions proposed throughout the state — including on the South Coast. According to a summary released by ODFW, no new hatchery program reductions have been added to the draft since the agency took public comment on its initial draft. But to the dismay of local anglers, the commission draft still includes the elimination of hatchery releases for fall Chinook on the West Fork Millicoma River and winter steelhead on the East Fork Coquille River. Under the plan, fall Chinook releases in the Elk River would be cut from 325,000 a year to 275,000. The Fish and Wildlife Commission is scheduled to meet in North Bend on April 25 for a public meeting to discuss the draft. The location and time of the meeting have yet to be announced. The commission is expected to make a decision on the plan draft in early June.

COQUILLE — Coos County commissioners decided Tuesday to try to find an outside attorney to help them oversee the formation and check the finalization of the South Coast Community Foundation’s bylaws. “We’re the ones on the hook here,” said Commissioner Bob Main. Commissioners were slated to vote on the bylaws at Tuesday’s regular meeting, but set that decision aside because another committee, the Community Enhancement Plan work group, hadn’t acted on them. The work group hadn’t received updated versions of the foundation bylaws until minutes before they were supposed to adopt
them Monday. “We had no time whatsoever to review them,” said Commissioner John Sweet, who is part of the CEP work group. He said the group would consider them at their meeting next Monday. Josh Soper, county counsel, will investigate the cost and availability of possible attorneys the county could hire for the external review. The Community Enhancement Plan is the plan proposed by local leaders to keep in the region the windfall revenues expected from the proposed Jordan Cove Energy Project’s liquefied natural gas plant. Within the overall plan is the South Coast Community Foundation, which is proposed to distribute half those revenues to local

NORTH BEND — A local veteran was honored for her volunteer work with Project HOPE last year. Carma Erickson-Hurt was awarded the silver medal in Project HOPE’s 2013 Volunteer of the Year awards for her work donating her expertise as a nurse in an area of the Philippines hit by Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the country in November 2013. Erickson-Hurt also created and oversaw a disaster management training program in Japan with Project HOPE in 2013. She said she spent 1,400 hours volunteering last year.

COOS BAY — The window to submit comments about Jordan Cove’s air contaminant discharge permit application to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is closed.

STEM hub receives $644,000

Funds to serve Oregon coast, from Astoria to Coos Bay ■
COOS BAY — The Oregon Coast STEM Hub is under development, identifying science, technology, engineering and math education needs on the coast. The Oregon Department of Education announced the $664,000 award Feb. 25. The Oregon Coast STEM Hub will serve the coast from Coos Bay to Astoria. Lincoln County School District, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Oregon State University’s Sea Grant, and Tillamook School District are working together to develop the hub. This spring, hub officials will host four public meetings to collect insight from coastal communities. That input will help them design activities, materials and services to improve students’ STEM education by using local coastal resources. The STEM Hub will also have support from more than 40 partner organizations, including Oregon State University, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Oregon Health and Science University, Near Space Corporation, Central Georgia-Pacific, Oregon Coast National Organization for Women, and the Marine Technology Society–Oregon Chapter.

Kesur masters level Vishvanedha and Michael Brown. Aaron then lost to Jonathan Homidan in the sixth round after getting behind a single pawn before rebounding with a win in the final round. Aaron’s estimated rating after this event puts him well into the master level at 2,221. He is now the only scholastic Oregon master. He joins the nine current active Oregon chess masters, who are all adults. His wins also earned him 24th place in the nation. He has two more years to vie for the national high school champion title. As a National Master, Aaron plans to break the rating of 2,300 by the end of the year. His ultimate goal is to reach 2,500 before he graduates from high school. A rating of 2,500 would make him a grandmaster. There are only 1,444 grandmasters in the world, none in Oregon. Four other Coquille chess players also attended nationals. Josiah Perkins, eighth grade (1,602), and Joshua Grabinsky, fifth grade (1,615), both battled in the championship division.

An idea to help save private forests It’s a brave new idea — and it’s one that could offer a measure of help to the private owners of small tracts of forest land. Western Oregon is filled with these small tracts, timber lots that date back to the earliest days of Oregon homesteaders. These are family forests that have been inherited by people who use the land for all intents and purposes as their savings accounts or possibly their retirement plans. The problem is that, increasingly, these private owners have been forced to sell their land to timber companies or other developers, a one-time payout that these owners, not infrequently, use for medical bills. Now, landowners may be able to take advantage of another option: Instead of getting money so someone could chop down their trees, they might get paid to leave them up. It’s part of an initiative to preserve the land so that the trees can help absorb greenhouse gases. The initiative, called Forest Health-Human Health, is the brainchild of the mid-valley’s Catherine Mater, working with the Pinchot Institute. If the initiative takes off, landowners could get money for keeping their land — and allowing their trees to stand as so-called “carbon sinks,” which suck carbon dioxide out of the air and into their root systems. Landowners would collect money based on
Oregon Views Oregon Views offers edited excerpts of newspaper editorials from around the state. To see the full text, go to theworldlink.com/new/opinion. the 20-year carbon-absorbing capacity of their trees. For some landowners, it could amount to a $5,000 initial payment and up to $1,000 each year. That kind of money could offer a measure of protection against health care costs and allow landowners to hang onto their property, keeping family forests in the family. Albany Democrat-Herald
Unreasonable ruling on wine growlers It should not be too much to ask that the federal government’s rules be roughly reasonable and approximately right. But the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has shown a lack of sense. The bureau declared in a March 11 ruling that filling growlers with wine and taking the growler off the premises “may be conducted lawfully only by a qualified taxpaid wine bottling house.” What that bureaucratese means is that
Oregon’s new wine growler law is in trouble. Oregon’s congressional delegation didn’t just accept this nonsense in stupid good faith. All the members of the delegation — senators and representatives — joined together to fire off a letter to tell the bureau to reconsider. Is the additional regulatory burden really worth it? Does the federal government really want to stifle these sales? Are beer growlers causing some sort of vast untold problem jeopardizing the public safety or failing to pay proper taxes? We’d guess the answers are: no, no and no. The bureau presents no such evidence to the contrary in its ruling. The bureau should stop enforcing this ruling unless it can prove it is necessary.The rules should be reasonable or the rules must change. The (Bend) Bulletin
The rise of the robots A story in Thursday’s Register-Guard told
of an odd event in Oregon’s wine country: A French inventor demonstrated a machine that can prune grape vines. The camera-guided robot moved up and down the rows of a vineyard, extending a clipper claw to trim dead wood and encourage grape production. The machine looks like a novelty, a toy. But it’s a glimpse of things to come. Christophe Millot’s Wall-Ye-France pruning robot costs $30,000,but the cost will come down. Even at the current price, it wouldn’t take long for a vineyard owner to recover the investment if the machine can replace a laborer. An experienced worker probably does a better job of pruning than the robot, but the robot’s skills will become sharper with each upgrade in processing, imaging and locomotion. The demonstration in the vineyard is a signal that robots are beginning to spread beyond big, capital-intensive industries. Oregon vintners say that what they really need is a grape harvesting robot, because the harvest is a big job that has to be done during a short period when the fruit is at its peak. They’ll be able to buy harvester robots soon, machines that can treat grapes with care that at first approaches, then matches and finally exceeds human capabilities. And if grapes can be tended and harvested by robots, so can other crops. The (Eugene) Register-Guard
There’s not an app for everything Almost every day, I hear parents and grandparents and people on television complain about how cellphones, smartphones, texting, streaming, Facebooking, tweeting and computer games are turning our children into little unsocial robots who won’t be able to function in the real world. The real world of cellphones, smartphones, texting, streaming, Facebooking, tweeting and computer games. And do you think you could get a job in today’s world by bragging on your resume that you don’t know how to text and don’t use email? What’s odd is that people on television and the people who watch it never seem to blame television itself for turning us into antisocial robots. Do you watch TV during dinner? Do you watch TV in the bedroom? Is there a lot of talking going on while you and/or your spouse watch a four-hour football game? Have you ever tried having a conversation with someone who is watching “SportsCenter”? Do you blab all the way through “NCIS: Wherever” and “Dancing With the Stars You Never Heard Of”? Do you talk all the way through movies you are watching? If you do, most people would rather you texted. But that’s not always JIM true, either. Recently, MULLEN some guy shot another guy Humorist dead for texting during a movie. As if texting during a movie is rude, but shooting someone to death for texting during a movie isn’t. “Whatever happened to talking to each other?” I hear people ask, as if every word they say is some kind of rare pearl, which comes only from a one-of-a-kind oyster that lives in a remote ocean off a faraway land. In reality,their own last,very social words were, “Have you seen the remote control? It was right here a second ago.” Is that a quote from Plato? Marcus Aurelius? Dante? Shakespeare? Shaw? Such elevated conversation, the kind that people who text and talk on their smartphones will never be able to have because they won’t have learned any of the social skills that people who grew up without smartphones and “Candy Crush” did. My friend, Marv, is one of those who think that cellphones, texting and email are turning us into a nation of tech idiots. I was behind him at the checkout line of the supermarket last week. After first asking the clerk why two avocados cost $4.12, and then explaining that the price of the sauerkraut on the shelf was different than the price on the flier, he pulled out his wallet and found the exact bills he needed. Then he scrounged around in his pockets to find the exact change. After about 30 seconds, it turned out he didn’t have the exact change, so he put all his money back and pulled out a big bill and handed it to the cashier. In the other lane, while all this was going on, two 20-somethings waved their smartphones at something on the counter and walked out with their purchases in 2 seconds. No printed receipt, no conversation, no polite chitchat with the cashier,no social interaction at all. Just what you’d expect from antisocial tech heads — so unlike Marv, who was engaging the young clerk with real conversation. Behind me, some woman kept tapping her foot like she was in some kind of rush. Just as Marv gets his receipt, she says into her cellphone,“My water just broke,” and the cashier,a 16-year-old boy,said,“You want to go back and get another?” Marv snorted his indignation. “In my day,” he said, “a clerk would have gone and gotten that lady another water.Manners —- I guess there’s no app for that!”

LNG plant is an insane proposal It seems to me that, in the original information on the Jordan Cove LNG proposal, the reason the Canadian company wanted to come to Coos Bay was that California wouldn’t allow it to happen there. We also had information that if a tsunami, earthquake, terrorist act, or accident caused it to explode here, it would incinerate everything within one mile, and demolish everything within 3 miles. So, last Monday there was an explosion at the William’s NW LNG plant in Plymouth,Wash.Injuring five and evacuating 400. They were very lucky the tanks didn’t explode or I would have been giving hell. Since the initial plan was to be an import facility here, a 232-mile
3-foot diameter pipeline would have to be built to connect to California. Now it’s changed to an export facility. Why come to Coos Bay? Surely use the exciting line to California and export from there. Oh, wait a minute, California won’t approve it, and we will? Does anyone remember the damage, the problem with the 12-inch line from Roseburg to Coos Bay? And now you want to deal with a 36-inch pipe line (far larger) through the mountain and under the rivers, including the Rogue, with the threat of minimal domain used to siege private property? There is also the issue of deepening the bay. Remember where all the chlorine went when that was done before? And initially we heard the bay will be closed to all boating when tankers are being escorted in. Now we hear maybe that’s not so. Is it or isn’t it? We’re hearing about enterprise zones and urban renewal district, no taxes for a year. What? Nonprofit foundations with millions of dollars to hand out! This makes no sense here in our backyard. There must be more people here as concerned as I am about this insane proposal who, like me, haven’t said anything. Don Wisely Coos Bay

‘Selling our soul to the devil ...’ I would like to address this comment to the pro LNG people who know how to read. Did you see Wednesday’s article in The World, on the third page, not the front page, on the LNG explosion in Washington? “Jordan Cove Energy Project
officials are zipping their lips.” Did you read that? “Around 400 in a 2-mile radius were evacuated.” Did you read that? How about “Jordan Cove’s two storage tanks would each have capacity of more than 42 million gallons, nearly triple the size of the Northwest pipeline tanks.” Here’s a good one: “Officials are still trying to figure out what caused the explosion.” How’s that one? I sincerely hope you pro LNG people turn out to be sorry for “selling our soul to the devil for a dime.” Jerry Dean North Bend

Donations help in support program The Bree’s Upscale Resale Bandon store is happy to announce that we are moving to a new location by May 1. We are leaving our longtime home at the Bandon Shopping Center and moving to the other end of Bandon on U.S.Highway 101,next to Juul Insurance, very close to the 11th Street intersection. This move will allow us to downsize so that we can offer only the best, highest-end donations that we receive. With this move, we will continue our long tradition of not-for-profit support for our local community with many of its breast cancer needs. We will still be donating money to local area hospitals and clinics, and providing individuals with help toward mammograms, mastectomy bras, prostheses, wigs and head covers. We are grateful to our customers and community for already showing overwhelming support for us during this transition. And we also wish the new owners of the shopping center, Dickerhoof Properties, the best and hope that they can do their part to boost the local economy. If they can bring jobs to the area then we see this transition as ultimately a win for Bandon. Kathy Pennington Coquille

State Cellphone snoop discovers her boyfriend is cheating DEAR ABBY: I have been in a long-distance relationship with â€œVictorâ€? for several years. Recently I began to suspect he was cheating. What raised my suspicion was that I suddenly DEAR couldnâ€™t reach him on the weekends. Usually we w o u l d Skype â€” Sunday night for m e , Monday JEANNE morning for PHILLIPS him. L a s t Fe b r u a r y when I visited him, I snooped in his phone â€” spare me the condemnation. I found an email he had written to an old girlfriend in which he suggested they plan their â€œnextâ€? rendezvous. I plan on dumping him, but I donâ€™t know how to go about it. I've always been bad at dumping people. Should I write him a letter and confess that I snooped? My first inclination is to disconnect completely and say nothing. Iâ€™m afraid to confront him because he is obviously a good liar. Iâ€™m afraid if I do, heâ€™ll make me doubt the evidence ... trust me, heâ€™s that good! â€” CHEATED ON IN L.A. DEAR CHEATED ON: Why any woman would stay with someone who is a practiced liar (â€œthat goodâ€?) is beyond me. My advice is to disconnect from him and say nothing. It should be interesting to see how long it takes him to notice your absence. When he does â€” which probably wonâ€™t be on a weekend â€” tell him the romance is over and reference the email he sent his former girlfriend. Expect him to go on the offensive and try to make you feel guilty for having checked his cellphone. Donâ€™t buy it, and donâ€™t relent. Just be glad you found out now. DEAR ABBY: I donâ€™t know if you have addressed the issue of women and breast augmentation from the standpoint of noticing the work done, but I am trying to find a way to say â€œI noticedâ€? without being crude or tacky. My wife works with a woman who recently had augmentation surgery, and we agree that the doctor did a very nice job. According to my wife, the woman is not shy about discussing her surgery. I have known her for years, and weâ€™re on friendly terms. We talk often and exchange hugs. How would I go about complimenting her on her new look? I donâ€™t want to say the wrong thing. Or should I just say nothing? â€” ENJOYS THE VIEW IN PHOENIX DEAR ENJOYS THE VIEW: All you need to say is, â€œYou look GREAT!â€? and sheâ€™ll get the message. Trust me. DEAR ABBY: Every time I talk to anyone, my husband says I give too many details. While I understand that men are different from women, he often bugs me when I talk to female friends or my mother-in-law. I donâ€™t know what to do, because we women love to talk and share details. Please reassure me that Iâ€™m not an oddity. â€” TALKINâ€™ UP A STORM DEAR TALKINâ€™ UP A STORM: Youâ€™re not an oddity, and your husband should not be eavesdropping on your conversations. He should be glad that you and his mother get along so well that you both enjoy sharing details, because itâ€™s a sign of a relationship. healthy However, because he canâ€™t resist â€œbuggingâ€? you, converse with your friends and his mother when youâ€™re out of earshot.

Charleen Brown and Alan Marion admire a postcard that had been mailed to Marionâ€™s great-grandmother in 1941 from Portland, and arrived at the Butte Falls Post Office in July 2013, at the Jackson County Genealogy Library in Medford.

Police ID 2 suspects in overpass assault EUGENE (AP) â€” Oregon State Police say they have identified two teenage boys who may have tossed a cinder block off an Interstate 5 overpass in Creswell, injuring a Washington state woman riding in a car below. The Register-Guard reports that police say the boys, ages 16 and 17, are cooperating in the investigation, as are their parents. No one has been arrested.
The block crashed through the windshield of a car in which 30-year-old Tiffany Becker of Roy, Wash., was riding early Sunday, hitting her in the face. She was treated at a nearby hospital and released. Once police finish their investigation, the case will be turned over to the Lane County district attorney for a decision on possible charges.
SEASIDE (AP) â€” Visitors to the north Oregon coast town of Seaside are being cautioned to stay well away from the carcass of a 40-foot gray whale thatâ€™s washing up on the beach. KATU-TV reports that Seaside Aquarium general manager Keith Chandler describes the carcass as â€œreally smellyâ€? and warns visitors they donâ€™t want their pets rolling on it. Chandler says once his team is done collecting data from the carcass, the city of Seaside will bury it.
Sex offender accused of abusing shopper MEDFORD (AP) â€” Medford police believe that a sex offender accused of bumping against a woman who was bent over to examine merchandise at a Target store has abused dozens of women a similar way. The Mail Tribune reports 53-year-old David Neal Reynolds surrendered last week on sexual abuse and other charges. The contact happened March 29. Police said the 41year-old victim is involved in law enforcement and reported the man had pressed his pelvis against her. An officer recognized Reynolds from surveillance video as a registered sex offender. Police said that based on statements from Reynolds, they think there have been many such incidents at grocery and department stores over the years.
Man sentenced to 10 years in mercykilling ROSEBURG (AP) â€” A 29year-old Southern Oregon man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for what he called the mercy killing of his roommate. The Roseburg NewsReview reports Charles Henry Teal of Myrtle Creek was sentenced Monday in Douglas County Circuit Court in Roseburg for manslaughter in the October 2011 slaying of 39-year-old Jeffrey Scott Bension. Teal told authorities that he and Bension drove into the woods outside Myrtle Creek, where Bension said he was dying of cancer. Teal said Bension begged him to end the pain, and he agreed, shooting Bension in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun. Although other people said Bension had told them he had cancer, an autopsy did not show he had the disease.

Portland man gets 15 years in murder plot PORTLAND (AP) â€” A 50year-old man convicted of attempted aggravated murder in a plot to kill his partner in a southeast Portland market has been sentenced to 15 years in prison. The Oregonian reports that Mohdsidek Habibullah was sentenced Tuesday. He and 45-year-old Mohammed Absar ran the Stop-N-Go Market. Evidence at trial showed that Habibullah would spend the bulk of the day operating the market, while Absar would often spend a few hours at the end of each day closing it down. The motive was unclear but each man believed the other owed him money. During his trial, Habibullah contended the plan was just a joke. Discussions were captured on audio recordings by a man enlisted as an accomplice. In the recordings, Habibullah talks about wanting to use a .357-caliber handgun to shoot Absar in the head.
Officer wounded in Portland shootout PORTLAND (AP) â€” A police officer has been wounded in a shootout in Portland. Sgt. Pete Simpson says the officer is expected to survive. A manhunt is underway in southwest Portland for a man armed with a rifle, possibly an AR-15, which is a semi-automatic with a military appearance. The Oregonian reports the exchange of gunfire happened shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday. Simpson says police are searching the area of Southwest Capitol Highway and Southwest Primrose Street. Residents within a four-block area are being asked to remain inside. Police also are looking for a police dog, which is on the loose.

Combat vehicles in east Ukraine fly Russian flag SLOVYANSK, Ukraine (AP) — A column of armored vehicles flying Russian flags drove into a Ukrainian city controlled by pro-Russian insurgents Wednesday, dampening the central government’s hopes of re-establishing control over restive eastern Ukraine. Still, it was far from clear just who these mostly masked men were and what their presence meant for eastern Ukraine, which has seen a surge of support for closer ties with Russia and against the new government in Kiev, which wants closer links to Europe. Troops in camouflage sat atop the six vehicles as they entered the city of Slovyansk, a hotbed of unrest against Ukraine’s interim government. Insurgents in Slovyansk last weekend seized the police headquarters and the administration building, demanding broader autonomy for eastern Ukraine and closer ties with Russia. Their actions have been repeated in at least eight other cities in eastern Ukraine. One of the men on the vehicles in Slovyansk said they were Ukrainian soldiers who had defected to the proRussian side — which raises the specter of an uprising led by disgruntled Ukrainian forces. But an AP journalist overheard another soldier suggesting that they were forced to hand over the vehicles. “How was I supposed to behave if I had guns pointed at me?” the soldier, who did not identify himself, asked a resident. Breaking hours of silence, Defense the Ukrainian
35-year-old sales clerk, was appalled by the unrest. “They are pushing us toward Russia,” she said. “They are tearing Ukraine into pieces.” Later Wednesday, several hundred residents surrounded 14 Ukrainian armored vehicles at the train station in Pchyolkino, south of Slovyansk, fearing that the troops were sent to quell them. A Ukrainian who introduced himself as a general addressed the crowd, asking them to let the vehicles leave, but residents blocked them in. Dmytro, a Ukrainian solder who gave only his first name, vowed that he would remain loyal to the Ukrainian state. “I took an oath to serve The Associated Press Ukraine,” Dmytro said. “I A combat vehicle with pro-Russian gunman on top runs through downtown Slovyansk on Wednesday.

Police say 5 dead in Calgary stabbings CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — The son of a Calgary police officer was charged in the fatal stabbing of five people at a house party that the law enforcement officials called the worst mass slaying in the western Canadian city’s history. Matthew Douglas de Grood,a recent graduate of the University of Calgary, picked up a large knife shortly after arriving at the party and The Associated Press stabbed the victims one by one shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, Police remove a body from the scene of a multiple fatal stabbing in said police Chief Rick Hanson. northwest Calgary, Alberta, on Tuesday.

they were all “good kids.” Neither the victims nor the suspect had any prior involvement with police,Hanson said. The University of Calgary said de Grood graduated in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree majoring in psychology and a minor in law and society. Hanson said about 20 people were at the party celebrating the last days of classes at a home in the northwest residential neighborhood of Brentwood, near the campus. He said the suspect was invited to the party and showed up after working his shift at a grocery store and was welcomed inside. He said it appears that no one at the party had been sleeping when the attack took place shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, but that everyone was taken by surprise.
Man charged with hoax in Boston NEWS
BOSTON (AP) — A man taken into custody near the Boston Marathon finish line late Tuesday, the anniversary of the deadly pressure cooker bombings, had a rice cooker in his backpack and was being charged with possession of a hoax device, police said. The man was stopped by an officer who saw him acting suspiciously, including walking down the middle of a street barefoot in pouring rain, Police Superintendent Randall Halstead said. The man dropped the backpack and told the officer it contained a rice cooker, he said. The incident took place hours after ceremonies to mark last year’s Boston Marathon bombings, in which two pressure cooker bombs hidden in backpacks exploded, killing three people near the finish line and injuring more than 260 others.
China’s economic growth slows to 7.4 BEIJING (AP) — China’s economic growth slowed further in the latest quarter but appeared strong enough to satisfy Chinese leaders who are trying to put the country on a more sustainable path without politically dangerous job losses. The world’s second-largest economy grew 7.4 percent from a year earlier in the JanuaryMarch quarter, down from the previous quarter’s 7.7 percent, government data showed Wednesday. It matched a minislump in late 2012 for the weakest growth since the 2008-09 global crisis. Beijing is trying to guide China’s economy toward growth based on domestic consumption instead of trade and investment following the past decade’s explosive expansion. The top economic official, Premier Li Keqiang, last week ruled out new stimulus and said leaders will focus on “sustainable and healthy development.”
Airliner lawsuits face dismissal in courts BEIJING (AP) — Since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing, some lawyers have claimed they can get several millions of dollars in damages for each lost passenger by taking the cases to the United States.

Groups applaud end of surveillance program NEW YORK (AP) — Muslim groups and civil liberties advocates applauded the decision by New York Police Department officials to disband a controversial unit that tracked the daily lives of Muslims as part of efforts to detect terror threats, but said there were concerns about whether other problematic practices remained in place. The Demographics Unit, conceived with the help of a CIA agent working with the NYPD, assembled databases on where Muslims lived, shopped, worked and prayed. Plainclothes officers infiltrated Muslim student groups, put informants in mosques, monitored sermons and catalogued Muslims in New York who adopted new, Americanized surnames. NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis confirmed Tuesday that detectives assigned to the unit had been transferred to other duties within the department’s Intelligence Division.
Court to consider challenge to Ohio law WASHINGTON (AP) — Negative campaigning and mudslinging may be a fact of life in American politics, but can false accusations made in the heat of an election be punished as a crime? That debate makes its way to the Supreme Court next week as the justices consider a challenge to an Ohio law that bars false statements about political candidates during a campaign. The case has attracted national attention, with groups across the political spectrum criticizing the law as a restriction on the First Amendment right to free speech. Even Ohio’s attorney general, Republican Mike DeWine, says he has serious concerns about the law. His office filed two briefs in the case, one from staff lawyers obligated to defend the state and another expressing DeWine’s personal view that the law “may chill constitutionally protected political speech.”

College Board provides a glimpse of new SAT WASHINGTON (AP) — Anxious students — not to mention their parents — can get a heads-up for how the redesigned SAT might look in two years. Sample questions for the new version of the collegeentrance test were released Wednesday by the College Board, which announced last month that the new test will include real-world applications and require more analysis. Students will also be asked to cite evidence to show their understanding of texts. A reading passage provided as an example was adapted from a speech delivered in 1974 by Rep.

Bulldogs sweep league foes in meet BY JOHN GUNTHER The World
NORTH BEND — One school was missing, and not all the athletes were competing in their best events, but the Far West League got an early preview for the district meet in a track meet at North Bend on Tuesday. The host Bulldogs swept the team titles by more than 40 points, with the boys beating runner-up Marshfield and Sutherlin finishing second to North Bend’s girls. A couple of the people who will be heavy favorites in the district meet won their specialties. North Bend’s Wyatt Cunningham took the high jump, soaring over the bar at 6 feet, 6 inches before missing three tries at 6-8. See related photos at Cunningham cleared www.theworldlink.com. 6-10 — the top mark in the state this spring — the last time the Bulldogs hosted a meet, but wasn’t too concerned to not reach that height Tuesday. “The approach feels 10 times better and more consistent,” Cunningham said of his jumping this season. “That’s what I’m working on.” The big jump two weeks ago brought a sense of relief, he said. “I knew I had it in me,” he said. “It was frustrating I hadn’t gotten to it.” Another Class 4A leader, Olivia Gulliford of Sutherlin, easily won the discus with a throw of 123-10 and then also took the shot put with an effort of 36-2 that was just good enough to beat the big personal best of 36-01⁄2 put up by Marshfield’s Karissa Irvin. Gulliford said she is thrilled with the season to date. “It’s really fun when you’re able to throw at the start of the year how you did at the end of

Gulliford was one of just two double-winners among the girls. North Bend’s McKenzie Edwards won both the 200 meters and the 300-meter hurdles. North Bend’s McKezie Gauntz cleared a season best 10-4 to win the pole vault, outlasting teammate Mikena Shay. “I’m definitely happy with that,” Gauntz said, adding that she and Shay push each other, but also being the other’s biggest fans. “We get to just encourage each other,” she said.

Several boys won multiple events, including Marshfield’s Hunter Drops, who took the pole vault, javelin and triple jump.
NBA set to begin its marathon playoff run
NB stays perfect in league THE WORLD North Bend’s baseball team improved to 6-0 in Far West League play by shutting out host Douglas 12-0 on Tuesday. Jonathan Bennison pitched a four-hitter in the five-inning game, striking out eight batters while hitting one and walking one. “Jon pitched really well,” Bend North coach Brad Horning said. “We did a really good job of getting runners on base early in the innings and we were able to bat them around.” Tylan Corder and Zach Inskeep each had three hits, including a double, and scored two runs. Inskeep drove in three runs and Corder had two RBIs. Hunter Jackson had three hits, a run and two RBIs and Tyler Laskey had two hits and a run. Triston Garnett had two hits, including a double, for the Trojans. The Bulldogs host BrookingsHarbor in a big doubleheader Friday. The Bruins edged Siuslaw 3-2 on Tuesday. Both North Bend and Brookings-Harbor are unbeaten and a sweep by either would put that squad in first place about midway through the league season.

COOS BAY — Marshfield’s baseball team claimed its firstever Far West League victory, beating South Umpqua 5-3 on Tuesday. Marshfield jumped up 1-0 in the first after Andrew Sharp knocked in lead-off hitter Drew James and the Pirates never trailed from that point on. Sharp also had a triple in the third inning before scoring on a wild pitch. “It was good baseball today,” Marshfield head coach Scott Carpenter said. ”We played seven innings, and that’s what we preached and preached, and we’re finally starting to see it happen.” South Umpqua was able to knot the score at two in the third, but James led a late-inning attack by Marshfield. James led off the fifth inning with a triple before getting knocked in on a sacrifice by Tyler Campbell to put Marshfield up 3-2. In the sixth, he hit a two-run double to give pitcher Alek Millican some breathing room. He said that after his second at bat, he scooted closer to the pitcher in the batter’s box and was pleased with the results. “I came out flat and not really ready,” James said after finishing 2-for-3 with two runs, two RBIs and a stolen base. “I made a change at the plate and I was driving balls.” Marshfield allowed South Umpqua to get the winning run to the plate in the seventh after two costly errors, but Millican was able to get out of the jam. He popped up Shawn Rigsby to first baseman Austin Soria to close out his complete game. After giving up two runs in the first three innings, Millican tweaked his delivery a bit. After the adjustment, he only allowed two more hits the rest of the way and didn’t give up another earned run. “I changed my delivery and moved my hands a little which helped me get the ball around faster and release where I needed to,” Millican said. “I got dialed in and started getting the ball over the plate, getting ground balls and making them put the ball in play.” The Pirates now stand at 1-6 in Far West League play and 2-9 overall. They’re scheduled to play at Glide today and have a league doubleheader at Sutherlin on Friday. Their next home game will not be until they host Siuslaw for a doubleheader May 2.

Rick Adelman’s long coaching career in the NBA could end tonight when the Timberwolves wrap up their season.
Adelman’s coaching career winds down MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — As the clock ticks down on the Minnesota Timberwolves’ regular season finale on Wednesday night, one of the most quietly successful coaching careers the NBA has ever seen could be coming to a close right with it. Over the past quarter century, Rick Adelman has won more than 1,000 games, developed an innovative offense that influences everyone from Gregg Popovich to Erik Spoelstra and developed a reputation as a master of exploiting opponents’ weaknesses while maximizing the talents on his own roster. But as his 23rd season draws to a close, it does so with everyone involved — a coach who wanted to make one last playoff push, a franchise hoping to convince its star player not to abandon it, a fan base worn down by mediocrity — left wanting more.
The “coaching lifer,” as Popovich describes Adelman, who has always been able to come up with right answers to basketball problems has been frustrated like never before by an inability to squeeze more out of a talented but flawed team. “This year it just seems like we have a good game, and then it could be from one half to the next half,” Adelman said recently. “That’s been the hard part, trusting what’s going to come. It’s just been a very difficult year. I don’t think I’ve ever really experienced (this).” Adelman’s contract has a mutual option included for the final season, meaning either side can opt out of the deal. Adelman will turn 68 in June and the contract calls for a decision to be made no later than two weeks after the season ends. SEE ADELMAN | B2

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin dunks during the first half against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday.
Clippers set team record for wins THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin scored 24 points while picking up his 16th technical, and the Los Angeles Clippers led all the way in beating the Denver Nuggets 117-105 on Tuesday night for their franchise-record 57th victory of the season. Chris Paul had 21 points and 10 assists, and J.J. Redick added 18 points in the Clippers’ finale at home, where they went 34-7 for another franchise mark. DeAndre Jordan had 13 points and 16 rebounds. The win kept the Clippers in the hunt for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. They would need to win at Portland and Oklahoma City would need to lose to Detroit tonight for
the Clippers to claim the second spot. Otherwise, they will remain the third seed. Los Angeles will have to get by without Griffin on the road since his 16th tech triggered a league-mandated onegame suspension. Kenneth Faried led the Nuggets with 21 points and Aaron Brooks added 19. Timofey Mozgov had 18 points and 11 rebounds as Denver’s three-game winning streak ended. Knicks 109, Nets 98: T im Hardaway Jr. scored 16 points and the New York Knicks, playing without the injured Carmelo Anthony, beat the Brooklyn Nets to win the season series between city rivals. The Knicks prevented the Nets from clinching the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and won their third straight in their too-little, too-late
strong finish. Amare Stoudemire and J.R. Smith each added 14 points. Anthony had an MRI exam Tuesday that revealed a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He won’t play Wednesday against Toronto, the final game of the first season in his 11-year career that won’t end with a playoff berth — and potentially his last as a member of the Knicks. He has said he will become a free agent in July. Marcus Thornton scored 24 points for the Nets, who weren’t sharp despite playing starters Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. The other starter, Shaun Livingston, remained sidelined with a sprained right big toe. The Nets still have a magic number of one for finishing fifth. But they could fall to No. 6 if they lose today in Cleveland and Washington beats Boston.
Cal hires Martin away from Tennessee BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — A more relaxed fan base, milder weather and a chance to coach at the top-rated public university in the country added up to Cuonzo Martin making the decision to leave Tennessee for California. Cal hired Martin as the 16th men’s basketball coach in school history Tuesday, a decision that stunned Volunteers administrators and players after he had reaffirmed his commitment to Tennessee just two weeks ago. Martin said it was a difficult move but the opportunity at Cal was too much to pass up. “It’s a beautiful place. I got off the plane and I just said, ‘Ahhh,’” Martin said during his introductory news conference in Berkeley. “I think it has a chance to be special here. I think that’s the most intriguing thing to me. It’s a place I could spend the rest of my life.” Cal athletic director Sandy Barbour said Martin’s contract, which is still being finalized, is for five years. Financial details will be released at a later date. Martin also said he will bring “quite a few” of his
ADELMAN From Page B1 Adelman and Wolves president Flip Saunders have said they will sit down to discuss things after the season is over. Adelman did help bring a team that had won just 17 games the season before he took over back to respectability. A win in the finale on Wednesday night against Utah would mean the Wolves (40-41) would finish with a non-losing record for the first time since 2004-05. But this season also began with playoff expectations, and Adelman has shouldered some of the blame. Among the biggest criticisms: ■ He played All-Star forward Kevin Love the entire third quarter all season long, which caused him to rest for long stretches of the fourth quarter and never changed that even as the Wolves routinely let leads slip away in the final period. “He’s had to throw differ-

Cuonzo Martin watches his Tennessee team practice for the NCAA tournament last month. Martin was hired by California on Tuesday. assistant coaches from Tennessee to Cal once his contract is complete. Martin replaces Mike Montgomery, who retired last month after six seasons in Berkeley. Martin went 6341 in three seasons at Tennessee, including a 24-13 mark and an appearance in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament this season. He also was previously the coach at Missouri State. Martin succeeds one of the most successful college coaches in the history of the San Francisco Bay Area. Montgomery finished his
career with a 677-317 record, having also spent 18 years at Stanford and eight at Montana. Replacing a revered coach is nothing new for Martin. Martin, a 42-year-old native of East Saint Louis, Illinois, took over a Tennessee program under NCAA investigation in 2011 and has averaged 21 wins per year. But, at times, he struggled to escape the shadow of former coach Bruce Pearl, who led the Volunteers to NCAA tournament appearances in each of his six years on the job. “For me, as a coach, your
ent lineups out there and give us different looks in order to get over the hump,” said Love, who has one more year on his contract before he can opt out as well. “We’ve been able to get better through the season. ... With coach, he’s not out there playing. It’s definitely on us that last quarter.” ■ The competitive fire that helped him lead Portland to two NBA Finals, turn woebegone Sacramento into a hoops hotbed and take an undermanned Houston team to Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals against the mighty Lakers wasn’t as present. ■ He didn’t play young players enough. Rookie Gorgui Dieng has had a terrific final month of the season, but hardly played until Nikola Pekovic’s injury forced Adelman’s hand in March. Shabazz Muhammad also showed some promise as a scorer of the bench but rarely got consistent minutes behind struggling veteran Chase Budinger.
The last one is particularly difficult for Adelman to swallow. At 67 years old and having never won a championship, Adelman says he has no time to play favorites. “I’ve just been searching,” Adelman said. “I’ve been in this business a long time. I understand if the coach doesn’t win, they’re not going to be there very long. Whoever I feel can win the game for us, that’s who I tried to play.” The last two weeks of the season offer a perfect window into the season as a whole. Victories at Miami and home against Memphis, San Antonio and Houston. Losses at Orlando and Sacramento, a maddeningly inconsistent team. “If you play like you really want it, you take the losses,” Adelman said a few days after a particularly ugly loss to the Kings in January. “You’re going to have some. But when you don’t see that, like you saw in the Sacramento game, then it becomes really difficult because you’re just try-
style is your style,” Martin said. “I don’t mind following guys. I like learning from guys.” The decision left players, administrators and fans back in Knoxville stunned. Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said he didn’t know Martin was involved in the Cal job until they spoke Tuesday morning. “We did have a conversation. He was very emotional,” Hart said. “The bottom line is he said in his heart he believed this was best for (him) and his family.” Hart said he wishes Martin “nothing but success” at Cal and understands why he left after a “tough year.” When Tennessee was struggling earlier this season, disgruntled fans started an online petition to bring back Pearl, who has since been hired by Auburn. Martin began to silence his critics when Tennessee revived its season by winning eight of nine games before falling 7371 to Michigan in the Midwest Regional semifinals. Martin also spoke with Marquette about its coaching vacancy a few weeks ago, but he pulled his name from consideration.
“We gave this one away tonight,” said Reedsport coach Todd Harrington. Marquece Williams had an outstanding outing on the mound, allowing five hits and striking out eight with one walk. “Marquece pitched probably his best game of the year and we didn’t support him at all on offense,” Harrington said. Reedsport had two runners caught off base on line drives that became double plays for Oakland and had other miscues as well. “We had four really stupid base-running mistakes,” he said. Williams and Joe Hixenbaugh scored the runs for Reedsport in the third inning after both singled. Reedsport got four of its six hits in that inning, but had at least two people on base several other innings without scoring. Austin Nix went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI for the Oakers. Ian Patt also had a double and scored one of the runs.
Nonleague Gold Beach 7, Bandon 6: Bandon gave up a threerun lead in the sixth behind a barrage of Gold Beach base hits to fall to the visiting Panthers on Tuesday. The Panthers mustered up four runs in the sixth after big hits from CJ Maxwell and George Ochoa. With a slim 76 lead, Gold Beach’s Garrett Litterell shut down the Tiger bats in the final two innings. Despite the loss, Bandon head coach Jay Ferrell finally got to play the nine starters he envisioned at the beginning of the year and wasn’t disappointed in the results. “Overall, I know it’s a loss, but it was the best game we’ve been a part of all year,” Ferrell said. “We really came to play today. By far the best game we played all year.” Gold Beach starting catcher and lead off hitter Maxwell went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a home run on the first at bat of the game. “We got out-batted,” Ferrell said. “We got beat by a run and that’s how it works in baseball.” Ferrell did highlight a couple of good performances from the Tigers. Quinn Hamblin went 2for-4 with two RBIs for the T igers. Starting pitcher Coleton Jackson was able to settle down after the opening Maxwell home run. Jackson pitched a solid four innings and only gave up one walk before Ferrell’s “ horse” Robert Martino came in to relieve him in the fifth. Bandon plays Illinois Valley next at home in a doubleheader Saturday.

Far West League South Umpqua 10, Marshfield 0, six innings: Marshfield was no-hit and shut out by a dominant pitching performance from South Umpqua’s Krystan Cook. The Pirates only got three base runners — Khalani Hoyer, Mackenzie Johnson and Abby Osborne — all game. “If we can’t get on base, we can’t win,” Marshfield coach Brooke Toy said. “We couldn’t produce any runs.” Sophomore Cook got 12 of the 18 Pirate outs through strikeouts. She only walked Johnson, the other two base runners came from being hit by pitch. “She was pretty dominant,” Toy said. “She’s the best we’ve seen hands down.” Marshfield will hope to forget about this loss when they take on Sutherlin in a doubleheader at home Friday. The Pirates are now 3-4 in Far West League play and 5-7 overall. Douglas 19, North Bend 0, five innings: North Bend struggled Tuesday, losing in six innings to Douglas to fall to 1-5 in Far West League play. The Trojans jumped out to a 14-0 lead on Bulldog pitcher Lindsay Henson by the end of the second inning. Douglas finished with 19 hits. North Bend coach Meghan Thomsen saw improvements with her team despite the lopsided score. “It definitely didn’t come easy,” Thomsen said. “They gave a lot more effort today than I had seen them in a majority of the games we played. They kept their heads high and fought.” Thomsen also highlighted that the Bulldogs only had four strikeouts on Tuesday and started making better contact at the plate. Ashley Cassel had a triple for North Bend’s only extrabase hit of the day. Thomsen knows that her team needs to “just completely dump it and learn from our mistakes.” North Bend will travel to Far West League leader Brookings-Harbor for a doubleheader on Friday. The Bruins stayed perfect in league by beating Siuslaw on Tuesday.
Nonleague Gold Beach 21, Bandon 3: The Panthers dominated the host Tigers behind three home runs. Hailey Timeus went deep twice for Gold Beach and Heidi Hancock also hit a home run. In all, the Panthers had 11 hits and benefited from 10 walks and seven Bandon errors.
monolithic superstar in the NBA like Tiger whose absence would completely deter my interest. If LeBron got hurt (heaven forbid) I’d have a stable of superstars like Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Stephen Curry, etc. Nothing against Bubba Watson, but a tepid battle on Sunday between him and Jordan Speith isn’t making up for a Tiger-less Masters. So this weekend, even if the Warriors lose Game 1 against the Clippers, I’ll wear a smile and still be optimistic. The season is just getting started anyways.

Sports Eugene makes bid to host 2019 world championships LONDON (AP) — Eugene is bidding to bring track and field’s world championships to the United States for the first time. The IAAF said Tuesday the Oregon city is one of three candidates in contention for the 2019 championships, along with Doha, Qatar, and Barcelona, Spain. The contenders were announced
at the International Association of Athletics Federations council meeting in Dakar, Senegal. The host city will be selected at the next IAAF council meeting in Monaco in November. In the meantime, the bid cities must present detailed bid files and consult with an IAAF evaluation panel. The worlds were first staged in
1983 in Helsinki, Finland. The 2015 championships will be held in Beijing and the 2017 worlds in London. It’s the second straight bid from Doha, which lost out to London in 2011 for the 2017 hosting rights. Barcelona, which hosted the 1992 Olympics, had submitted a bid for the 2017 worlds but withdrew
due to lack of government support. Eugene is due to host this year’s IAAF world junior championships. Another Oregon city, Portland, is set to host the 2016 IAAF world indoor championships. Even though the U.S. is the most successful country in the history of the world outdoors, the championships have yet to be held in the
country, mainly due to the lack of a suitable stadium. Eugene is the home of Hayward Field, which has hosted the NCAA outdoor championships 11 times and has regularly staged the U.S. Olympic Trials. The facility underwent $8 million in renovations in 2008 but would presumably need to be expanded for the worlds.

Sports Jackson praises MLB for support of minorities THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Marking the 67th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier, the Rev. Jesse Jackson praised Commissioner Bud Selig for the strides the sport has taken in minority opportunities over the past two decades. Jackson traveled to baseball’s 1992 winter meetings to criticize its lack of minorities in management, and he pushed for change. Selig retired Robinson’s No. 42 in 1997 on the 50th anniversary of the big league debut of the Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman. Selig established a Diverse Business Partners program the following year and in 1999 started requiring clubs to consider at least one minority for each manager and major executive opening. MLB also sponsors 35 Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars. Jackson said Jackie Robinson Day had become “a national holiday for all practical purposes.”

Cincinnati pitcher Mike Leake, left, gets his jacket from first base coach Billy Hatcher after Leake hit a double off Pittsburgh starting pitcher Gerrit Cole in the third inning Tuesday. All players and coaches wore No. 42 jerseys in honor of Jackie Robinson on Tuesday.
Pitcher’s power helps Reds win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CINCINNATI — Mike Leake doubled and hit a two-run homer Tuesday night, ending Gerrit Cole’s winning streak and leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates that completed two days full of homers and delays. First, the NL Central rivals comNL pleted a game that was suspended in the Recap sixth inning because of rain the previous Andrew night. McCutchen doubled and came around on Russell Martin’s single in the seventh inning, giving the Pirates an 8-7 win. Leake (2-1) gave up three runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings for a split. The right-hander has won his last four starts against the Pirates. Jonathan Broxton pitched out of a two-on threat in the ninth, converting his first save chance. Leake, who has the most hits by a major league pitcher since 2010, doubled and scored in the third. He hit his third career homer in the sixth off Cole (2-1), who had won his last six starts. Todd Frazier hit his second homer in
two games and Joey Votto had four hits. Neil Walker hit three of Pittsburgh’s seven homers in the two games. The teams wore their customary uniforms for the completion of the suspended game, then switched to commemorative No. 42 Jackie Robinson jerseys for the later game, which started 5 minutes later than originally scheduled. The teams put on a record-setting show Monday night before the game was suspended after six innings tied 7all. They combined for 10 homers in those six innings, the most for a game in Great American Ball Park’s 12 seasons. When play resumed, McCutchen doubled off Sam LeCure (0-1). Bryan Morris (2-0) gave up Mesoraco’s tying solo homer in the sixth inning Monday night, but was still the pitcher of record. Marlins 11, Nationals 2: Giancarlo Stanton tied a career high with five RBIs, including a three-run homer off Stephen Strasburg, and Miami broke an eight-game losing streak by beating Washington. Strasburg (1-2) allowed six runs and eight hits in four innings. He fell to 2-3 at Marlins Park with an ERA of 8.61. Tom Koehler (2-1) yielded one hit and five walks in seven scoreless innings

Cardinals 6, Brewers 1: Shelby Miller struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings, and Mark Ellis had two RBIs in his return from the disabled list to lead St. Louis over Milwaukee. Mets 9, Diamondbacks 0: Kirk Nieuwenhuis had three hits and three RBIs in his season debut, Jenrry Mejia pitched five effective innings in a combined three-hitter and New York routed the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks. Rockies 3, Padres 2: Juan Nicasio pitched six solid innings and Colorado edged San Diego for a rare road victory.
NEW YORK — Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks. While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York. Calls by umpires on the field have been confirmed in 33 of 89 challenges through Monday and overturned in 30. For 25 others, calls stood because of a lack of “clear and convincing” evidence. In one instance, umpires asked Omar Infante homered for a video review to check and drove in two runs for the the balls-strike count. Royals. Ventura (1-0), an elite Tampa Bay loses pitcher prospect with a 100 mph to Tommy John surgery fastball, allowed four hits and BALTIMORE — Tampa one earned run with seven strikeouts in his fifth major Bay left-hander Matt Moore will miss the remainder of league start. Infante hit a solo shot in the season after opting to elbow-ligament the first off Lucas Harrell (0- have 3) as the Royals found some replacement surgery.

Fielder hits first home run for Rangers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ARLINGTON, Texas — Prince Fielder and Kevin Kouzmanoff hit back-toback homers, Robbie Ross limited Seattle to five singles in seven-plus innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Mariners 5-0 Tuesday night. Fielder ended a 13-game homerless streak to start the season with his new team, hitting a line drive to rightcenter off former Texas firstround pick Blake Beavan (0-1) leading off the second inning. Two pitches later, Kouzmanoff went deep to left. Kouzmanoff also had two doubles, the second one driving in two runs to put the Rangers up 4-0 in the eighth. Ross (1-0), a former reliever, got his first win as a starter in his third try as the Rangers recorded their third straight win by shutout and fourth in seven victories overall. Fielder’s homer drought was the second-longest of his career to start the season. He twice went 14 games before his first long ball — in 2008 and 2010.

Lowrie led off the 11th with a single AL against Recap YH oe rsrlear na (0-1), the Angels’ seventh pitcher. Donaldson hit a sharp grounder inside third base for the AL-leading A’s, who have won four straight and eight of nine. Jim Johnson (2-2) pitched two innings for Oakland, getting Howie Kendrick on a groundout with Trout and Albert Pujols in scoring position to end it. Trout hit a two-run shot in the ninth for the Angels, who have lost three of four. Both teams erased late three-run deficits during two dismal bullpen performances. The Angels trailed 9-6 in the eighth after leading 6-3 heading to the seventh. White Sox 2, Red Sox 1: Alexei Ramirez scored the winning run in the ninth inning on a two-out throwing error by Xander Bogaerts,
and Chicago edged Boston on a frigid night. With the score tied at 1, Red Sox reliever Burke Badenhop (0-2) allowed a one-out single to Ramirez. After Tyler Flowers struck out, Chris Capuano walked Adam Eaton. On a 3-2 count, Marcus Semien hit a grounder to Bogaerts, who one-hopped his throw to first baseman Mike Carp. Carp wasn’t able to scoop the ball and Ramirez, already running on the pitch, never stopped while rounding third and scored without a throw. Daniel Webb (1-0) got one out for the victory. The temperature at first pitch was 40 degrees. The upper deck was closed because of ice on the ramps. Adam Dunn homered for the White Sox, who have won four of five. Daniel Nava homered for Boston, which has lost three straight. Red Sox slugger Mike Napoli left in the ninth after injuring his left ring finger sliding into second base.

petition. But a race like that, running against Cameron, was very good.” Lucero was part of a surprise win for North Bend, combining with Woods, Cunningham and Drew Matthews to take the 4x400meter relay. Woods and Matthews both are new to track this spring and the 400 is a distance that is new to them and longer than Lucero’s usual efforts. Matthews won the long jump Tuesday. Meanwhile, Marshfield distance runner Colby Gillett was second in the 400 and then took a win in the 800 by chasing down Siuslaw’s Mitchell Butler, the state leader for the 3,000, in the home stretch. Both likely will run the two longest races in the district meet.
“Coach didn’t want us to run the 15-3 today, so we ran the 4-8,” Gillett said, adding that his time of 2:07.08 was “great.” South Umpqua was the only league school not present Tuesday. Most of the same schools will be competing Saturday at the Bay Area’s other school when Marshfield hosts the annual Prefontaine Rotary Invitational. Pacific Invitational: The host Pirates swept the team titles in their own invitational on Tuesday, with the girls edging Myrtle Point and the boys dominating the other six schools, nearly doubling up runner-up Bandon.

who once went by the last name of Ochocinco is in a minicamp this week with the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes. The three-day session began Tuesday and there’s a real chance Johnson will be with the club when its season begins in June. Johnson last played an NFL game in the 2011 season. He was with the Miami Dolphins for training camp the following season, and his contract was terminated one day after he was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.
BASKETBALL Luol Deng is honored for community service INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Cavaliers forward Luol Deng has won the J. Walter Kennedy Award, given annually to an NBA player for community service. Deng has had a long commitment to philanthropic work in his native South Sudan. His recent public service announcement for EnoughProject.org urges peace in his homeland. Deng also established a charitable foundation in Britain, which granted his family political asylum. Cavs coach Mike Brown says Deng’s award is “welldeserved. He has an amazing story.” Deng says he’s honored to receive the award, which is named after the league’s second commissioner and has been handed out since 1975.
Two Arizona stars will make jump to the NBA TUCSON, Ariz. — Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson are leaving Arizona for the NBA. One of the top freshmen during the 2013-14 season, Gordon was widely expected to leave after one season in Tucson. Johnson built up his draft stock with a superb junior season, earning numerous All-America honors and the Pac-12 player of year award. Johnson led Arizona with 16.3 points per game last season while proving to be one of the nation’s best perimeter defenders. Gordon was named the Pac-12 freshman of the year after averaging 12.4 points and 8 rebounds per game. Coach Sean Miller said freshman Rondae HollisJefferson and sophomore Kaleb Tarczewski will remain at Arizona for another season. Arizona (33-5) came within a point of reaching the Final Four, losing to Wisconsin in the Elite Eight.
GOLF Players Championship changes playoff format PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — The Players Championship is changing this year to a three-hole aggregate playoff involving the closing stretch at the TPC Sawgrass. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem announced the new format Wednesday. The Players Championship previously was a sudden-death playoff that began on the par-3 17th hole, famous for having an island green. Starting this year, a playoff would take place on the par-5 16th hole, the 17th, and the par-4 18th. If players are still tied, it would go to sudden death starting on the 17th. The Players Championship is May 8-11. It becomes the only regular PGA Tour event to use a playoff format that is not sudden death.
Day will take break to heal injured thumb HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — Jason Day has a cast on his left hand to immobilize his injured thumb and isn’t expected to return to competition until The Players Championship in three weeks. Day injured his thumb while winning the Match Play Championship in late February. He took six weeks off before playing at the Masters, where he barely made the cut.

Tips to make cooking fun and rewarding I remember my grandmother saying, “If we didn’t need food, we’d all be rich!” This may be true. But then, a life withEVERYDAY out food CHEAPSKATE would be a little l e s s pleasurable. Still, there are so many ways to m a k e g r e a t f o o d Mary cheap, Hunt m a k e perishable food last and the grocery budget stretch like nobody’s business. Enjoy today’s tips, filled with practiced wisdom for practical solutions to make cooking fun and rewarding for you and your family. Bon appetit! PUT A LID ON IT. When I first started cooking, making a perfect grilled cheese sandwich seemed to elude me. Either my sandwich was toasted on the outside with unmelted cheese inside, or the cheese was gooey but the outside burnt. Then I figured out the old fry cook trick: put a lid on it! Once one side is perfectly grilled, turn it over and then cover the pan with a lid or baking sheet. You will never settle for a sub-par grilled cheese again. SLIPPERY CHICKEN. Pulling the skin off chicken can be tough when it’s slippery because it’s difficult to get a good grip. Solution: Dip your fingers in flour first and the skin will pull right off. ONE LOVELY CUPPA. If you love coffee as much as I do and have never tried a gadget called Aerobie (everydaycheapskate.com/aerobie) by AeroPress, you are in for a delicious surprise. Aerobie is manual and the cheapest, easiest, fastest way to make a really great cup of coffee. And, yes, I do mean just one cup of perfectly brewed coffee at a time. Aerobie is small enough to keep one in your desk drawer at the office and another at home. Can’t break the $4-a-day Starbucks habit? This could do it. For me, Aerobie makes such a superior cup of coffee, breaking that habit’s a cinch. HEAT THE MUG. Tired of that first morning cup of steaming hot coffee cooling off too quickly? Do this: As your coffee is brewing, fill your coffee mug with water and heat it to boiling in the microwave. Pour out the water into a dirty dish or pan that needs to be soaked, and replace with hot coffee. You’ll be amazed by how much longer the coffee stays hot. O N E G O O D E G G . To determine whether an egg is still fresh enough to eat, immerse it in a pan of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it’s fresh — if it rises to the surface, toss it. FREEZING EGGS. When eggs are on sale, stock up. Break the eggs into a freezersafe container and whisk well to blend. Freeze. When you need an egg in a recipe, use an ice cream scoop to portion out what you need, as you would scoop ice cream. Once scoop is equal to one egg. GR EAS E T H E GR AT ER . To get more cheese in the recipe and less stuck on the grater, spray both sides of the grater lightly with cooking spray before grating the cheese. Would you like to send a tip to Mary? You can email her at email@example.com, or write to Everyday Cheapskate, P.O. Box 2099, Cypress, CA 90630. Include your first and last name and state.
