NB school district boundary shifts K-5 grade reconfiguration leads to line changes, putting more kids in North Bay See the redistricting map online at


NORTH BEND — A new school district boundary will push more North Bend students into North Bay Elementary. The school board approved a new boundary line Monday night. It runs along Virginia Avenue, turns south onto Oak Street, west onto 11th Street, south onto Pine Street, cuts west across Airport Heights, and turns north just

west of Roosevelt Street. “I don’t know if there even was an original (boundary),” said interim Superintendent Bill Yester. “For the most part, most students north of the bridge were going to North Bay and south of the bridge were going to Hillcrest.” Now, families living north of the boundary will go to North Bay; those living south will go to Hillcrest. Families that live right on the boundary will go to North Bay.

“There are always going to be people who feel like it’ll be difficult for their families to make that change,” said board chair Megan Jacquot. “We’re not trying to hurt anybody. We’re trying to make things better for all of our students.” This change follows the school board’s quest to solve overcrowding and busing issues by putting grades K-5 in both elementary schools. Each grade at both schools will have

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Want to know whether there’s been a history of sexual assaults on your college campus? The Obama administration has created a new website that will post enforcement actions it’s taken against schools and provide information for victims on where to go for help. A White House task force on sexual assault recommended actions Tuesday that colleges and universities should take to protect victims and inform the public about the magnitude of the problem, such as identifying confidential victim’s advocates and conducting surveys to better gauge the frequency of sexual assault on their campuses. The recommendations stem from a 90-day review by the task force that President Barack Obama created after his administration heard complaints about the poor treatment of campus rape victims and the hidden nature of such

president what keeps them up at night, more than anything it’s the safety of our students.”

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy slowed drastically in the first three months of the year as a harsh winter exacted a toll on business activity. The slowdown, while worse than expected, is likely to be temporary as growth rebounds with warmer weather. Growth slowed to a barely discernible 0.1 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That was the weakest pace since the end of 2012 and was down from a 2.6 percent rate in the previous quarter. Many economists said the government’s first estimate of growth in the January-March quarter was skewed by weak figures early in the quarter. They noted that several sectors — from retail sales to manufacturing output — rebounded in March. That strength should provide momentum for the rest of the year. And on Friday, economists

crimes. The task force also promised greater transparency. A new website,, will post enforcement actions and offers information to victims about how to seek local help and information about filing a complaint. “Colleges and universities can no longer turn a blind eye or pretend that rape and sexual assault doesn’t occur on their campus,” SEE CAMPUS | A8

expect the government to report a solid 200,000-plus job gain for April. “While quarter one was weak, many measures of sentiment and output improved in March and April, suggesting that the quarter ended better than it began,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief investment strategist at global financial services firm BTIG. Still, the anemic growth last quarter is surely a topic for discussion at the Federal Reserve’s latest policy meeting, which ends Wednesday afternoon. No major changes are expected in a statement the Fed will release. But it will likely announce a fourth reduction in its monthly bond purchases because of the gains the economy has been making. The Fed’s bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term loan rates low. In its report Wednesday, the government said consumer spending grew at a 3 percent annual rate SEE ECONOMY | A8

PORTLAND — A Native American group is calling on Nike Inc. to stop producing and selling products that feature the Cleveland Indians’ mascot Chief Wahoo, which it calls a “grotesque caricature” of modern Indians. The logo, which appears on some team caps and jerseys, depicts a grinning, red-faced cartoon with a feather headband. The group, called Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry, is planning a protest at Nike’s Oregon headquarters in Beaverton this week and is running a social media campaign using the #Dechief hashtag. “The fact that Nike is selling items that feed into the hostility toward Native Americans is really troubling,” said the group’s cofounder, Jacqueline Keeler. “Major businesses profit off of caricatures of our people. It would not be acceptable for any other group to be portrayed like this.” Nike did not immediately return a call for comment regarding the mascot protest. Supporters of the logo say it’s not racist and should be respected because it is part of the team’s history. The group’s effort is part of a larger national debate over use of Native American names and logos in sports — imagery that many consider offensive. Hundreds of high school and college teams have done away with their Native American nicknames. But many others have steadfastly held to their mascots and logos, prompting continuing protests. Lawmakers in Oregon this year eased up on a ban on Native American mascots, opening the door for some schools to keep them. Native Americans have been protesting Chief Wahoo for years. In January, the Cleveland Indians made the Chief Wahoo logo less visible and gave more prominence to the block letter “C” for Cleveland, though the team denied it was demoting Wahoo. There were no changes to the uniforms, with Wahoo’s face remaining on the team’s home cap and on the sleeve of all the team’s jerseys — and opponents say they want the caricature completely gone. Keeler’s group is going around the team owners and targeting companies that produce teams’ gear, starting with Nike.

Woman displaced after apartment fire EMPIRE — An Empire-area apartment sustained approximately $25,000 in damages from a fire Monday night. According to the Coos Bay Fire Department, the occupant of unit 16 at the Empire Lakes Apartments wasn’t home when neighbors heard her smoke alarm go off and saw smoke coming from the apartment’s top story. Firefighters extinguished the fire — believed to have been caused by an unattended hot object in the bathroom — before it was able to spread to neighboring apartments. The American Red Cross is providing assistance to the displaced resident.

NB sophomore wins Mt. Hood teen pageant NORTH BEND — A North Bend High School sophomore landed a college scholarship in a recent pageant. Allie West, 16, was crowned Miss Mt. Hood Outstanding Teen 2014 at the Miss Cascade Scholarship Pageant on April 26 in Oregon City. The scholarship pageant is part of the Miss America Program, awarding college scholarships to young women ages 13 to 24. West received tuition funds for placing first in the talent portion of the compe-

tition. She performed an Italian opera, “O Mio Babbino Caro.” Her platform is “From Compassion to Action — Volunteerism.” Contestants competed in sportswear, evening gowns, talent and answered a question regarding a current event or their platform. All contestants were interviewed by a group of five judges prior to the program. Receiving this title allows West to compete in the Miss Oregon Outstanding Teen Competition in June in Seaside.

Early fires could foretell a hot, dry summer You might have noticed the news items this week about a pair of fires on Scott Mountain near Sweet Home. These weren’t big fires, not by any stretch. But if you were thinking that it seems a little early in the season for forest fires, you’re not alone. Near the start of the year, when we were in the grip of an unusually dry winter, a number of fires broke out in western Oregon. Since then, a stretch of rainy weather has aided matters considerably, but we’re still at risk. In general, March storms increased snowpack in the northern half of the western United States but didn’t provide much in the way of relief for the dry southern half. March marked the second straight month when many snow telemetry sites across the West received two to three times the normal amount of precipitation, and that has helped to make up in part for an abnormally dry early winter. Nevertheless, a handful of observations we’ve made before on this topic still very much apply: First, the federal government would be wise to enact a proposal that would treat the largest 1 percent of wildfires as natural disasters. This designation would allow these huge fires to be fought using money from the same disaster account that pays for hurricane and other natural disaster relief efforts. In turn, this would help preserve money earmarked for badly

GOP will provide a compelling primary race for Senate

Oregon Views Oregon Views offers edited excerpts of newspaper editorials from around the state. To see the full text, go to needed forest restoration efforts. Second, it’s time — it’s well past time — to get people back to work in the woods, helping to remove the smaller trees and other growth that have turned our forests into tinderboxes.

Reporting medical errors should be mandatory Medicine is science, training and art performed by humans. Mistakes happen. Oregon’s laws and rules don’t do enough to ensure there are fewer mistakes. Nobody really knows how many medical errors there are every year. Instead, there are national estimates. And those estimates keep going up. In 1999, the seminal report “To Err is Human” from the Institute of Medicine said that up to 98,000 people a year die because of mistakes in hospitals. In 2013, The Journal of Patient Safety reported that the number might be 210,000 patients to 440,000 patients each year die because of things that happened in

hospitals that could have been prevented. Concern about patient safety prompted the Oregon Legislature in 2003 to form the Oregon Patient Safety Commission. It was designed from the beginning, though, to be voluntary. Doctors, nursing homes, pharmacies, medical clinics and hospitals don’t have to report their mistakes. There are no penalties. If participation is only voluntary, the commission and Oregonians don’t know how bad Oregon’s problems are with mistakes. And they don’t know if the commission’s efforts are focused on the right things. The Oregon Patient Safety Commission announced this month it is working on rules for mediating disputes over medical errors. It’s a kind of limited malpractice reform produced by the Legislature. Patients and doctors can go into a confidential mediation process to settle disputes. But if Oregon is serious about reducing medical errors, they should make reporting errors mandatory. The (Bend) Bulletin

Beyond a doubt, the most compelling statewide race in the May primary election is the battle being waged among Republicans hoping for a shot at the U.S. Senate. The winner of the Republican primary, which has attracted five GOP candidates, will face off against the Democratic incumbent, Jeff Merkley, who is running for his second term. The GOP field of five candidates essentially boils down to two: Jason Conger, a state representative from Bend; and Portland pediatric neurosurgeon Monica Wehby. Conger and Wehby have similar positions on some key issues in the race: Both,for example, are opposed to the Affordable Care Act. But the truly interesting angle here is that Wehby appears to be to Conger’s left on certain social issues. For example, Wehby is pro-choice on abortion and is sympathetic to same-sex marriage. These positions have raised eyebrows nationally, and have led at least some pundits to proclaim that Wehby is more electable than Conger in a statewide race against a Democrat. Whichever way voters decide in the May 20 election, it’s a good sign for Oregon’s GOP that it’s staging an election that has captured the state’s attention. Corvallis Gazette-Times

Privacy from government A Pennsylvania high school issued laptop computers to students and then remotely activated the laptops’ cameras to watch the students when they were away from school. On my computer, a program called Disconnect reveals that my favorite websites spy on me and track what I like to read, what I browse, what I buy. Privacy is almost a thing of the past. As I explained on my show recently, I follow the advice of “experts.” I buy anti-virus software (today a virus is more likely to steal your credit card and bank info than harm your computer). I sometimes change passwords.But someone still might steal my data. I’m told I should be upset about this. But I’m not. Already, I voluntarily give up privacy. Amazon has my credit card info. Facebook, Google,, etc., know my preferences. I resent that websites demand I click “agree” to say that I’ve read their complex terms and conditions. (I click “agree,” but no one reads them.) By comparison, the National Security Agency’s data mining seems relatively benign. They just gather patterns JOHN of phone numbers. They STOSSEL say they don’t listen to my calls or know my name. Columnist Do we trust them? The important difference is whether what you do is voluntary. You can decide whether to use Facebook or let private sites install cookies to track your info. Johansson didn’t give that hacker permission to steal her photos. And I didn’t give the NSA — not to mention the IRS, FBI, etc. — permission to access my information. Sometimes people say that sharing information with Amazon or Facebook is just as involuntary, but the truth is that we’re just too lazy to check their privacy policies. And there’s a good, rational reason we don’t worry so much about companies: Even if they get hold of my embarrassing information, all they can do with it is try to sell us things. Because of the Internet, I changed my behavior years ago. I try not to email anything too embarrassing. I’m aware that when I surf the Web, someone might watch. And if you find out what I like to do on the weekend, what medications I take or that I have seen a psychotherapist, so what? I’m not ashamed. But here’s the thing: With all the private, voluntary transactions, I can at least decide whether the risk is worth it. I don’t get to make that calculation when government decides it wants to know more about me. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency wants black box recorders to be mandatory in all cars. The bureaucrats say they need to keep track of how we drive and where we go — but not to spy on us, they say. They promise they won’t tell anyone that you see a psychologist or go to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. They just want your travel pattern in order to know where to build the next highway, add mass transit and so on. And if you are in an accident, the black box may reveal important information about who is at fault. Maybe the other guy was speeding. Now the lawyers will have more information. And don’t we trust the government? No, not always. But we don’t place an infinite value on privacy. Sometimes we’re willing to give up some of it — to friends, doctors, companies with whom we want to do business. What we really value is the freedom to choose when we’ll do that and when we’ll tell people to butt out. We can never tell government to butt out.

Letters to the Editor SCCF means funds for schools

If not LNG, we’re doomed

As a lifelong Oregon Coast resident, business owner and father of a child being educated in our local school system, I urge your readers to support the South Coast Community Foundation (SCCF). Please understand that I am not advocating blind support. I encourage you to do the research, participate in the public process still underway and then make up your own mind. A work group comprised of the four Enterprise Zone sponsors (cities of Coos Bay, North Bend, Coos County and International Port of Coos Bay) are currently making remarkable progress in developing acceptable bylaws which will allow the SCCF to achieve its stated purpose while providing accountability and transparency to our local media and citizenry. As a community, we have many struggles to overcome. High rates of unemployment, poverty, domestic abuse and drug use which far exceed state and federal levels. We need to change our destiny and seize the opportunity the South Coast Community Foundation will provide our schools. County assessor Steve Jansen projects that, if enacted, and if Jordan Cove becomes a reality and starts construction in 2015, our local schools will see $298.75 per child (K-12) vs $33.96 starting in 2016. If the SCCF does not exist, there will be no other mechanism available to us which prevents these monies from being lost to the state equalization process. The April 15 World editorial adeptly pointed out that a pervasive state of distrust exists between certain factions of our citizenry and local government agencies. It is unfortunate that a vocal minority within our community finds it preferable to engage in divisive behavior and personally attack those they disagree with rather than to work together with others in a collaborative manner for the benefit of our children. Todd Goergen Coos Bay

During my eight years here in Coos Bay,I have observed two distinct camps in this community: those who want growth and those who don’t. Both are passionate about their position, as witnessed in recent town hall meetings and editorials, but it seems that the bigger picture is being largely ignored in these debates. To be blunt, our community is on a slow but unwavering downward trajectory, both socially and economically.This is not supposition. Consider the following: Over the past two years, Coos County lost nearly 1,300 workers — a significant 4.4 percent of our total workforce. A shrinking workforce means fewer customers for local businesses. It means lower property values, more empty commercial space and less tax revenue. Indeed, both Coos County and Coos Bay governments have dipped into savings the past few years to make ends meet, and neither anticipates a windfall in the near or distant future. Many of our schools are in substandard condition, and our streets and sewer system are in need of major repairs. Many city buildings are sinking and the cost of repairs could force some businesses to close or move elsewhere. Additionally, Coos County ranks as the 28th unhealthiest county in Oregon. It is one of the most obese counties in the state and we have one of the highest tobacco use rates in Oregon — especially among pregnant mothers — and we rank among the highest for cancer incidents. Meth and heroin use is prevalent. Our suicide rate is 70 percent higher than the state average and 40 percent of our residents are below the federal poverty line, including a stunning 76 percent of single mothers with children younger than 5 years old. Fourteen years ago, 16.5 percent of Coos Bay's population was below the poverty line. That number has grown to 18.1 percent. Worst of all, we have twice the state average of children in the foster care system and most have experienced child abuse. (We're the eighth highest county in Oregon for abuse cases). Ninety-eight percent of our families with child abuse incidents are

below the poverty level. I am respectful of those who oppose the Jordan Cove project, but in reality the absence of Jordan Cove will only serve to accelerate our demise. I have never heard anyone say that Jordan Cove would fix all our woes, but it would certainly be a big step in the right direction. Alan Pettit Coos Bay

LNG fees a thinly disguised bribe I recently read a letter to the editor in which the writer said that the environmental types keep coming up with any reason to support their opposition to LNG. I find this very interesting.I seem to remember that the proponents first said that they supported the importation of LNG for “energy independence.” Now that the proposal is to export LNG, the reasons for supporting it have all changed around 180 degrees. Let’s be real. The owners of the proposed facility are only in it for the money. They will do or saying anything in order to make it happen.They didn’t get as rich as they are by being stupid or not knowing how to play the game. The recent ploy is to (almost) promise money for our community. This is not a great deal of money for them; but it is a lot for our poor area. I agree that, if LNG comes, it would be nice to get some of the crumbs from their table to help local schools, etc. However, we should know that they are buying support (or at least a reduced opposition); so, it’s really just a thinly disguised bribe. The proponents say that increased money brought into the area outweighs points made by the opposition. I question this logic. What if those of us who are fairly new to the area — those of us who selfishly put in our 45 years of hard labor and now want to live in an area with clean air — decide that Bandon, Reedsport, etc. would work just fine for us. I recently talked with a neighbor who said that if LNG does come, he might just move out of the area. I had the same thought earlier, although I did not prompt his comment. Unfortunately, in this economic climate, some of us do collect (and spend) more than some

working families. What if LNG comes into this area and the number of dollars spent here actually goes down? Just asking. Glenn Thurkow North Bend

Use LNG money to fix sewers Coos County commissioners, Coos Bay city councilors, think outside the box. Your actions, voting away citizens rights to their share of the LNG Community Services Fees by joining South Coast Community Foundation (SCCF), will increase their cost of living. While Coos Bay holds public meetings on sewer upgrades, and other meetings,the council will be voting to join, or not, the SCCF. Why can’t LNG community service fees be used to upgrade not only Coos Bay but other county sewer plants currently not in the plan. Fees, $25 million a year, $500 million dollars in 20 years. Coos Bay only needs $81 million for it’s 20-year construction master plan. A drop in the bucket. If you can’t flush the toilet, you can’t educate the kids, right. Coos Bay city officials have raised the flag, blown the whistle, EMERGENCY, two new sewer plant upgrades and street paving paid for by the citizens in new taxes or sewer fees. They see their options only limited to the citizens taking out their wallets. No, wait, they want to hear from us, meetings to be held in May. But, really the plan is for us to do it to ourselves by voting for a city charter change, allowing the officials to borrow the money, raise taxes, because now we have to vote to raise taxes, increasing cost for everyone in the community. Believe me, if that does not work, fee increases will be used, as they are now. The city officials and supporters like the fee increases, they don’t have to ask anyone. The mayor estimates sewer fee options of $55 a month for a single household in 2014 to $85 in 2020, just six years going forward of the 20 years. There are only two options, or a combination of the two, on the table now. Carol Taylor Coos Bay

Clark’s disappearance is one of the oldest active missing-person cases in the nation, according to a federally funded database of missing persons.

Old barn burned to destroy explosives WINLOCK, Wash. (AP) — After the Washington State Patrol bomb squad decided the best way to deal with deteriorated, volatile explosives found in an old Lewis County barn was to burn the old building, the Winlock Fire Department did just that. Lewis County sheriff’s Chief Deputy Stacy Brown says the property owner called the Sheriff’s Office on Monday night after finding the explosives when he was clearing out the old building. They were there before he bought the property and apparently had been in the barn for several decades. Brown says the building burned within minutes Tuesday.

Should JordaN Cove pay for our kids’ SCHOOLS or PortlaNd’s?

It DoesN’t Take a GeNIus to figure It out

If approved, the South Coast Community Foundation will be funded by Jordan Cove Energy Project to put money into our local schools equaling over $300 per student each year! After construction is completed, it will gradually increase to $600 per student. Without the South Coast Community Foundation, the taxes paid by Jordan Cove will be sent to Salem and distributed to schools across the state under Oregon’s equalization requirements, resulting in only $30 per student for each year.

Iraqis brave threat of violence to cast ballots BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqis braved the threat of bombs and attacks to vote Wednesday in key elections for a new parliament amid a massive security operation as the country slides deeper into sectarian strife. Hundreds of thousands of troops and police fanned out to protect the first nationwide balloting since the 2011 American pullout. Scattered attacks still took place north of Baghdad, killing at least five people, including two women, and wounding 16. Baghdad looked like a deserted city, with police and soldiers manning checkpoints roughly 500 yards apart and pickup trucks mounted with machineguns roaming streets that were otherwise devoid of the usual traffic jams. Stores were closed, and many voters had to walk for miles to the polls after authorities banned civilian vehicles to prevent car bombs. Others demanded a lift from army or police checkpoints. Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki, who has held power for eight years, faces growing criticism over government corruption and persistent bloodshed as sectarian tensions threaten to push Iraq back toward the brink of civil war. The 63-year-old Shiite leader’s State of Law party was widely expected to win the most seats in the 328member parliament but to fall short of a majority, according to analyst predictions. That would allow al-Maliki to keep his post only if he can cobble together a coalition — a task that took nine months after the last election in 2010. “God willing, we will celebrate a successful election and defeat terrorism,” alMaliki told reporters after casting his ballot in Baghdad. He was upbeat about how his party will fare.

2006, when Iraq’s sectarian bloodletting began to spiral out of control, with Sunni militants and Shiite militias butchering each other. The violence ebbed by 2008 after Sunni tribes backed by the Americans rose up to fight al-Qaidalinked militants and Shiite militias declared a cease-fire. But attacks have surged again in recent years, stoked in part by al-Maliki’s moves last year to crush protests by Sunnis complaining of discrimination under his government. Militants took over the city of Fallujah in the Sunni-dominated province of Anbar and parts of the provincial capital of Ramadi. Iraqi army and police forces battling them for months have been unable to take most areas back and voting was not taking place in parts of the vast province The Associated Press bordering Jordan and Syria.

Latest weather wallop: Florida, Alabama flooding PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — In the latest blow from a dayslong chain of severe weather across the South and Midwest, the Florida Panhandle and Alabama Gulf Coast were hit with widespread flooding early Wednesday, with people stranded in cars and homes waiting for rescuers to find a way around impassable roads and others abandoning vehicles to walk to safety. Crews weren’t able to respond to some calls for help because of flooding in and around Pensacola, and one woman died when she drove her car into high water, officials said. Boats and jet skis were moved from the beaches to the streets, authorities planned aerial rescues, and the National Guard sent high-wheeled vehicles. Officials received about 300 calls for evacuation in the Pensacola area and had completed about 210, Gov. Rick Scott said at a news conference in Tallahassee. About 30,000 were without power. Some people left their flooded cars and walked to find help on their own. “We

Kiev: Forces “helpless” to restore order in east HORLIVKA, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine’s police and security forces are “helpless” to quell the unrest in two eastern regions bordering Russia and in some cases are cooperating with the pro-Russia gunmen who have seized scores of buildings and taken people hostage, Ukraine’s leader said Wednesday. Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov said his government’s goal now was to prevent the agitation from spreading to other territories in the sprawling nation of 46 million people. His interim government in Kiev and Western governments have accused Moscow of orchestrating the turmoil in eastern Ukraine, which borders Russia. The United States and the European Union rolled out new economic sanctions against

Russia this week but Moscow has remained unbowed, denying its role in the unrest. Turchynov spoke hours after pro-Russia gunmen seized more administrative buildings in eastern Ukraine.

Oklahoma halts execution of inmate writhing on gurney McALESTER, Okla.

Kerry demanding Sudan cease-fire WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry is bringing his two main tools of diplomacy — peace talks and threatened sanctions — to Africa this week to help find a way to end months of killing that is threatening to rip apart the world’s newest nation, South Sudan. It’s not yet clear whether the U.S. will impose the sanctions while Kerry is in South Sudan — which, he said recently, he planned to visit during a week of stops that also include Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola. U.S. officials are still trying to persuade three of South Sudan’s immediate neighbors to issue similar penalties against people on both sides of the brutal fighting.

Jordan opens Syria refugee camp AZRAQ, Jordan (AP) — Jordan opened a new, sprawling tent city Wednesday to accommodate tens of thousands more Syrian refugees who are expected to flee their country’s fighting — another grim indicator for a deadly war now in its fourth year. The new Azraq refugee camp is built to host 130,000 people, said Brig. Gen. Waddah Lihmoud, director of Syrian refugee affairs in Jordan. It cost $63.5 million dollars to build, the U.N. said. Once full — a process expected to take months — the camp will outstrip Zaatari, currently Jordan’s largest camp. That camp is now the country’s fourth largest city and the second largest refugee camp in the world. The Dadaab camp in Kenya is the largest.

Pact reflects cozier US-Philippine alliance MANILA, Philippines (AP) — A new defense pact that will allow thousands of U.S. troops to be temporarily based in Philippines for the first time in more than 20 years signals closer cooperation in the allies’ hot-and-cold relationship that has been shaped over the decades by war, terrorism and now, jitters over China’s rise. The 10-year agreement, signed Monday as President Barack Obama arrived in Manila, was considered the centerpiece of his fournation Asian trip, which Obama used to reassure allies like Japan and the Philippines of American military backing as they wrangle with China in increasingly tense territorial disputes.

With a new boundary line comes updated transfer policies. Families can begin applying for both intra- and inter-district transfers today. A lottery system will be used for grade-level openings.

ECONOMY Construction fell 5.7 percent Continued from Page A1 last quarter. But that gain was dominated by a 4.4 percent rise in spending on services, reflecting higher utility bills. Spending on goods barely rose. Also dampening growth were a drop in business investment, a rise in the trade deficit and a fall in housing construction. The scant 0.1 percent growth rate in the gross domestic product, the country’s total output of goods and services, was well below the 1.1 percent rise economists had predicted.

consumer spending and a rebound in business investment. In fact, many analysts believe 2014 will be the year the recovery from the Great Recession finally achieves the robust growth that’s needed to accelerate hiring and reduce still-high unemployment. Many analysts think annual economic growth will remain around 3 percent for the rest of the year. If that proves accurate, the economy will have produced the fastest annual expansion in the gross domestic product, the broadest gauge of the economy’s health, in nine years. The last time growth was so strong was in 2005, when GDP grew 3.4 percent, two years before the nation fell into the worst recession since the 1930s.

Also holding back growth: A cutback in spending by state and local governments. That pullback offset a rebound in federal activity after the 16-day partial government shutdown last year. Economists say most of the factors that held back growth in the first quarter have already begun to reverse. Most expect a strong rebound in growth in the April-June quarter. Analysts say the stronger growth will endure through the rest of the year as the economy derives help from improved job growth, rising

slow was in the final three months of 2012, when it was also 0.1 percent. Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Marcroeconomics, said he expects the economy’s growth to rebound to a 3 percent annual rate in the current April-June quarter. Other economists have made similar forecasts. A variety of factors held back first-quarter growth. Business investment fell at a 2.1 percent rate, with spending on equipment plunging at a 5.5 percent annual rate. Residential construction fell at a 5.7 percent rate.

We don’t want them transitioning any more than necessary.” Each family will have one chance to have their name pulled from the lottery, meaning siblings have a chance at moving schools together. When there’s an opening in a grade, the first student on the lottery list in that grade level will be given the opportunity to move to the requested school. If that student chooses not to move, his or her name will be removed from the lottery for the rest of the school year.

CAMPUS Rare, highprofile attention Continued from Page A1 Vice President Joe Biden said in announcing the results of the task force’s work. Advocates praised the rare, high-profile attention being given to the issue, even as they acknowledged that much of the action required will still need to come from college administrators. Lisa Maatz, vice president for government affairs with the American Association of University Women, said the “smart schools” will take the recommendations and adopt them. Rory Gerberg, a graduate student and advocate at Harvard University, said that while the task force recommendations will play a central role in determining how universities deal with sexual assaults, they only go so far. “As students, it will be our responsibility to put pressure on our university administrations to ensure these recommendations are put into practice,” Gerberg said. Molly Corbett Broad, president of the American Council on Education, said her organization representing college and university presidents welcomed the chance to collaborate with the government on handling sexual assaults, “which the task force notes is a ‘complicated, multidimensional problem with no easy or quick solutions.” Eileen Wilson-Oyelaran, president at Kalamazoo College in Michigan and the immediate past chair of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, said there’s

room for improvement in how college campuses and communities handle sexual assault cases. She said college presidents will have to review the recommendations to determine what works best in their particular situation. “If you ask a president what keeps them up at night, more than anything it’s the safety of our students,” Wilson-Oyelaran said. On the same day, the Education Department issued “questions and answers” that spelled out to colleges and universities and K-12 schools how to handle circumstances under Title IX, which prohibits gender discrimination at schools that receive federal funds. The 1972 Title IX law is better known for guaranteeing girls equal access to sports, but it also regulates institutions’ handling of sexual violence and increasingly is being used by victims who say their school failed to protect them. Among the directives: ■ A victim’s sexual history cannot be brought up in a judicial hearing unless it involves the alleged perpetrator and that those working in on-campus sexual assault centers can generally talk to a survivor in confidence. ■ A school is required to process complaints of alleged sexual violence that happened off campus to it whether determine occurred in the context of an education-related activity. ■ In a K-12 setting, when a school learns that a teacher or other employee has sexually harassed a student, it is taking for responsible “prompt and effective” steps. ■ Straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students are all protected and a school must resolve “same sex” violence in the same way it does for all such complaints.

Silver banishes Sterling

Pirates upset Bruins

New commissioner gives owner of Clippers a lifetime ban ■

THE WORLD Marshfield’s baseball team picked up a big win Tuesday, edging host Brookings-Harbor 6-5 and knocking the Bruins down to fourth in the Far West League standings. Austin Soria had three hits and drove in two runs for Marshfield and Tyler Campbell pitched a complete-game five-hitter. “Tyler was the best I’ve seen all year as far as getting ahead of people,” Marshfield coach Scott Carpenter said. “They were really off-balance. It was fun to watch.” M a rs h f i e l d took the lead with a four-run third inning. Campbell hit a lead-off single and Andrew Sharp walked. Austin Ross sacrificed them over and Soria hit an RBI single. After Jake Miles and Doug Martin both walked, Johnny Philips had a two-out single to bring in two more runs. Marshfield also manufactured a huge run in the seventh, after the Bruins had pulled within 5-4. Miles was hit by a pitch, Phillips walked, Drew James singled and Campbell walked with the bases loaded. Campbell and James each had two hits for the Pirates, while Inside Izak Ehlers had a Marshfield wins single and double in softball, too for the Bruins. Page B2 M a rs h f i e l d improved to 3-9 heading into a home doubleheader with Siuslaw on Friday. “It’s nice,” Carpenter said of the win. “We’ve just got to hopefully ride it out and finish strong. “As far as jelling, we’re starting to come together a little bit. It’s better late than never. We’re just going to have to take it one game at a time and keep our heads up.” Siuslaw 14, Sutherlin 0: The Vikings kept their hold on second place by shutting out the host Bulldogs in a five-inning game. Because of last week’s rain, the Vikings are in a brutal week that also included a win over North Bend on Monday. Siuslaw hosts South Umpqua for a doubleheader today before visiting Marshfield on Friday.

Local Recap

Coquille’s Tommy Boyles ducks as the ball flies past his head while he rounds second base during their game Tuesday afternoon against Myrtle Point. The Red Devils are hitting the diamond this year after missing out on the entire baseball season last year.

From the ground up Coquille rebuilds its baseball program BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

Nonleague Myrtle Point 8, Coquille 6: The Bobcats edged the rival Red Devils in Coquille. After Coquille took a one-run lead in the first inning, Myrtle Point responded with four runs in the third. The Red Devils went in front again, but the Bobcats scored two in the sixth and seventh to pull out the win. “It was definitely an evenly matched game and a fun game,” Coquille head coach Wayne Gallagher said. Myrtle Point starting pitcher Taylor Fischer was lights out with 14 strikeouts in just five innings. “He had a very solid performance against us,” Gallagher said. “He really shut us down.” For Gallagher, Zach Breitkreutz was the “standout,” offensively for Coquille, going 3-for-3 with four runs and five steals Red Devil freshman Ben Hallmark got his first base hit of the season with a single. SEE RECAP | B3

COQUILLE — It’s 4:30 p.m. on a Monday and Wayne Gallagher is in the middle of starting from scratch. Cramped up in Coquille’s cafeteria, the Red Devils’ firstyear baseball coach saunters up and down a line of kids — 10 of whom never played baseball before this year — and takes baby steps, teaching each kid which way to turn in a relay in an less than ideal atmosphere. Rain forces Gallagher and the Red Devils inside the narrow cafeteria about once a week. Dozen of windows have cracks, so now the players have to use soft, squishy balls to limit damage. The batting cage looks deflated with its net sagging snug with the stage. Weather forces plenty of high school teams inside during early Spring, but Coquille can treasure the opportunity more than most. It’s better than nothing, and after a season without a baseball program, nobody knows that bet-

ter than Coquille. “I really did not expect that we would have enough kids to have a team (this year), just because of the experience they’ve had in the past,” Gallagher said. “We honestly didn’t.” Lack of numbers literally kept Coquille from fielding a team in 2013 with fewer than nine kids eligible at the start of the season. This year, the program is back with 15 players and Gallagher is just tying to lay the groundwork for an endurable program moving forward. “Our biggest goal was to try and create something we can sustain,” Gallagher said. Why the team dissolved is up to a bit of debate. Dave Waddington was the previous coach, but between working as Coquille’s fire chief and running a baseball team, time ran thin. Ken Smith, another community member stepped up to volunteer, but grades also were a big problem and a few of the students weren’t eligible once the season started. Whatever it was, when push came to shove, the Red Devils

only had eight kids and baseball requires nine. “For one reason or another it fell through the cracks,” head football coach turned assistant baseball coach Dave Thomason said. “For a lot of players, especially the seniors, it left an awful taste in their mouth.” Last year five seniors graduated without a final chapter to their high school baseball careers. Drew Piburn — one of the two 2014 Red Devils who have played in high school before — remembers well the day the news came down. “I was on the field talking with a group of last year’s seniors and Coach brought us together and told us the news,” Piburn said. “First thought in my head was, ‘This completely sucks.’ Second thought was, ‘Wow. The seniors won’t ever play another baseball game in the high school career.’ I felt terrible for them. And we all just kind of moped around, got in our cars, said our goodbyes and left.” SEE COQUILLE | B2

LOS ANGELES — Several hours after owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life, the Los Angeles Clippers sprinted and soared through a playoff game as if a weight had been lifted from their collective shoulders. The Clippers finished a tumultuous day with a 113-103 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night, leaving their home court to high-fives and standing ovations from fans enthralled by the prospect of watching an NBA title chase without Sterling in his front-row seat. “We have a tough locker room, all of us are tough, but it almost brought out tears to your eyes just to feel the support from the fans,” said Chris Paul, the Clippers’ star point guard. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver delivered the extraordinary punishment to Sterling after a recording of racist statements by the real-estate mogul was made public several days ago. The ban is one of the harshest penalties in the history of U.S. sports, but was met with nearuniversal acclaim from fellow owners, civil rights observers and NBA players who strongly contemplated a playoff boycott if Sterling wasn’t punished harshly. “The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful,” Silver said while announcing his first major action as the league’s commissioner. “That they came from an NBA owner only heightens the damage and my personal outrage. Sentiments of this kind are contrary to the principles of inclusion and respect that form the foundation of our diverse, multicultural and multiethnic league.” Sterling was fined $2.5 million, the maximum allowable under the NBA constitution. Silver also will urge the NBA’s board of governors to compel Sterling to sell the Clippers, and if three-fourths of the other 29 owners agree, the league’s longest-tenured owner almost certainly will be forced to give up the team he has owned since 1981. Sterling made no public comment about the ban, but the owner is among the most litigious people in sports. Team spokesman Seth Burton said in an email that the Clippers had no plans to issue a statement from Sterling on Tuesday, but the franchise released a statement “wholeheartedly” supporting Silver’s decision. While the league waited to see whether Sterling will fight to keep his team, the Clippers got back to basketball with a flourish. Two days earlier, with news of Sterling’s comments still fresh, the Clippers dumped their team warmup jerseys in a pile at center court in Oakland in a gesture of defiance against their owner before losing Game 4 of the series. After Silver’s announcement and an emotional team meeting, the Pacific Division champions methodically beat the Warriors to take a 3-2 series lead. SEE STERLING | B4

Bulldogs bounce back quickly BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

NORTH BEND — The North Bend baseball team wasted no time bouncing back from its first Far West League loss, pounding visiting South Umpqua 10-2 on Tuesday. The Bulldogs scored in every inning and got a strong pitching performance from Tylan Corder to improve to 9-1 in league play and keep their 1 1 ⁄2-game lead on Siuslaw. “It was really important,” North Bend’s Marshall Rice said of the win, and getting momentum back. “We needed this bad.” Rice played a big role in the win, finishing 4for-4 with two doubles, two runs and four RBIs. He said the entire team was extra focused at the plate after the Bulldogs struggled during their loss Monday at Siuslaw. “Yesterday, we were just popping up every at-bat,” he said. “Today, we just tried to keep the ball low.” Rice led off the game for North Bend with a single. Cory Chatelle then acted like he was going to bunt, but pulled the bat back and slapped the ball over the infield for a single. After a walk to Zach Inskeep loaded the

bases, Jonathan Bennison hit a grounder that brought in Rice and North Bend had the lead the rest of the way. Rice had an RBI double in the second and Hunter Jackson had an RBI single in the third. The Lancers got both their runs in the fourth, aided by a throwing error from Corder after he fielded a bunt and hurried the throw to first. But North Bend wasted no time taking control of the game again. Jared Hample reached on an error, Tyler Laskey beat out the throw on a bunt for a single, Rice had an RBI single, Chatelle put down a sacrifice bunt, Corder hit an RBI groundout and Inskeep had an RBI single. Rice added a two-run double in the fifth inning. Corder helped his own cause by crushing a ball over the right field fence in the sixth and Jackson added an RBI double. “We created some opportunities in every inning,” North Bend coach Brad Horning said. “We bunted well. We ran the bases well, too.” North Bend’s offensive efficiency was matched on the mound by Corder, who allowed just three hits and struck out 12. SEE BULLDOGS | B2

Marshfield softball team shuts out Bruins BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

COOS BAY — After the two hardest losses of the year, Marshfield bounced back with its best win. The Pirates took out BrookingsHarbor 8-0 on Tuesday in one of — if not the best — all-around performance by the team this year. “That’s one of the best games we’ve played as a team,” Marshfield first baseman Carli Clarkson said. “We all came together, we hit offensively well and we played great defense.” The win comes off two punishing losses against Douglas last 1 Friday that put the Pirates 3 ⁄ 2

games back of third place in the Far West League, which comes with a guaranteed postseason spot. Tuesday’s triumph gets the Pirates back to .500 with a 6-6 record in league play. “It’s better than Friday,” Marshfield head coach Brooke Toy said, adding that BrookingsHarbor was the best team her team has beaten this year. “We put together a solid hitting and defensive game.” Everything was clicking for Marshfield on both sides of the ball. The Pirates jumped on top in the first. With two outs, Katelyn Rossback, Abby Osborne and Khalani Hoyer all reached base in succession, with Rossback coming

home on Hoyer’s single. Clarkson then struck out, but BrookingsHarbor catcher Alaura Marrington dropped the third strike and couldn’t hit Courtney Kay cleanly at first base. Clarkson was called safe on the error and Osborne scored Marshfield’s second run. A 2-0 lead proved to be more than enough for Marshfield pitcher Mackenzie Johnson. “Mackenzie pitched a great game,” Toy said. “Only two girls got solid hits off her. That’s a great day in the circle.” Johnson was nearly flawless against the Bruins. She gave up just the two hits and struck out four in the complete-game shutout. Freshman Johnson went

the first 3 2-3 innings hitless and, typical to her humility, handed all the credit to her teammates and the zero errors they committed behind her. “I feel like all of us as a team did really well and I couldn’t have done it without them,” Johnson said. “They’re all supportive and helping me up through the whole game. If I got down on myself and was about to walk a girl, they’d shout, ‘Hey girl, you got it.’” On offense, Marshfield got contributions from up and down the lineup. Rossback went 3-for-3 with three runs and an RBI. Clarkson finished 1-for-3 with a pair of runs driven in. Osborne went 2-for-4

with two runs. Hoyer was 3-for-3 with a two-run triple in the fifth that opened up the lead to 6-0. “I think we did pretty good. We’re really keeping our heads in it, hitting the ball through it and solid,” Hoyer said 1 Marshfield is now 2 ⁄2 games back of Brookings-Harbor for third place, but already lost the head-tohead tiebreaker with the Bruins 2-1. Marshfield will host Siuslaw (4-7) this Friday for a doubleheader. With how her team fared Tuesday, Toy likes the Pirates’ chances for Friday. “We got a solid group of girls and we’re finally coming together as a team,” she said. “It might be a little late, but better late than never.”

Brookings-Harbor sweeps track titles THE WORLD Brookings-Harbor swept the team titles in the eightschool Brookings-Harbor Twilight Meet on Tuesday. The Bruins had a few standout marks in the meet. Ronnie Manley, who also plays baseball for BrookingsHarbor, took over the Class 4A lead in the javelin with his throw of 189 feet, 3 inches. Teammates David Joyce (100 and 200), Chris Burton (1,500 and 3,000) and Shaine Graham (both hurdles races) all won two events for the Brookings-Harbor boys, who scored 207 points to finish far of runner-up ahead Marshfield (119.5) and Coquille (116). On the girls side, Sophie Landau dipped under a minute in the 400 meters for the first time, winning i n 59.9 9 se co n d s fo r By Lou Sennick, The World Brookings-Harbor.

800 in 2:28.65. Brookings-Harbor’s only other girls wins came in the two relays, but the Bruins scored 175 points. Coquille was a distant second with 102. Coquille’s Darian Wilson was a triple winner, including a new best of 121-3 in the javelin. Wilson also won the long jump and triple jump for the Red Devils. Coquille also got a win by Anna Sweeney in the 3,000, while Pacific’s Amanda Finley won the high jump and Gold Beach’s Kaitlin Armstrong took the 1,500. Among the boys, Coquille’s Bradley Romine tied for first in the high jump and also won the long jump and the triple jump. Teammate Brandon Bowen won the shot put and discus and Tristan Dixon won the pole vault. Pacific’s Cole Kreutzer won the 400.

Coquille. The Bobcats won 8-6, Coquille’s closest game of the season.

COQUILLE Team scrambled to find equipment From Page B1 When this year started, Coquille only had three kids coming back who wanted to play last year; Piburn, Austin Ross and Zach Breitkreutz, so the rest of the team needed to get filled out. Athletic director Dan Hampton and Superintendent Tim Sweeney sent out a couple of feelers to kids they thought might want to play and enlisted some help in Gallagher. Before coming to Coquille, Sweeney had the same role at the Butte Fall Schools District and had gotten to know Gallagher, the longtime baseball coach at Butte Falls rival Prospect. Gallagher, in his first year as a special programs administrator shared by the Coquille and Myrtle Point school districts, volunteered his time to help get a team together, and if all went well, coach for a year to get the program off the ground. As a final way to gauge interest in February, they hung up fliers advertising a meeting one lunchtime in Hampton’s government/geography classroom to see how many kids would show. Leading up to it, Gallagher admitted he was nervous, but all worries alleviated when he saw 14 kids show up wanting to play ball. “We really didn’t think we were gonna have enough,” Gallagher said. “The boys showed up and said they wanted to play baseball so we said ‘Let’s do this.’” Things got rolling fast. At the February Coquille School Board meeting, Sweeney announced Gallagher as head coach and the Red Devil’s new manager began frantically putting things together with the limited resources he had. Gallagher said he started a fundraising campaign since there was no money for baseball in the budget. He set up little things like raffles at basketball games, but most came from Gallagher’s hustle. When he saw the condition of the field, Gallagher talked ChemultPumice into donating 20 yards of pumice, a special rock used on the basepaths, and then talked a trucking company in Camas Valley into transporting it.

Then, Gallagher was able to convince Oregon First Community Bank to donate money to buy catchers gear. On the weekends, Gallagher and his son built an indoor pitching mound and a storage unit to keep the equipment at Lincoln School, site of Fortier Field where the team plays. “It’s been a real effort,” Gallagher said. “Nobody knew where the equipment was. We literally looked everywhere.” Gallagher and Hampton embarked 1 on a scavenger hunt and spent 2 ⁄2 hours scouring the school for any kind of leftover equipment. Eventually, they started to collect an eclectic hodgepodge of stuff the program accumulated through the years. A stack of four boxes of brand new baseballs meant for last year’s team was found under the concession stands. Under the stage in the cafeteria they found helmets and tees. Gallagher said they found bats “everywhere.” In the basement of Lincoln, they found their pitching machine without legs. Gallagher asked the shop teacher to fashion something the machine could stand on. Last week, in a scene right out of the movie Sandlot, a neighbor brought over two WalMart bags full of errant balls hit into his yard over the years with the message, “I’m happy you guys have a baseball program again.” Collecting equipment was one thing, but honing talent has been a whole different challenge for Gallagher. “We have to show the kids what baseball looks like,” Gallagher said. Gallagher recollects one of the early practices, one kid raised his hand and said he wanted to be the “home baseman.” On the second day of practice, five kids showed up without a glove, so Sweeney had to run to Fred Meyer to grab a few gloves just so the players could warm up. (It would’ve been six, but Gallagher had loaned foreign exchange student Pedro Ximenez his glove.) Thomason affectionately refers to this time as the “learning years.” Senior Chris Elmer is playing for the first time since middle school after getting talked into it by fellow track buddy Breitkreutz. He’s picking the game back up and is excited to see where it goes. “I wish we were a little bit better, but we’re getting there,” he said. “We’re a young team. It’s rough some-

times, but we push through. Everyone has a good attitude.” Elmer went on to talk about the lesser experienced players on the team. “They’re not pessimistic. There’s some rough points and it can get frustrating, but it’s good seeing people improve.” The trio of experienced players in Breitkreutz, Piburn and Ross, all participate in a second spring sport. Piburn is on the golf team, while Ross and Breitkreutz do track. Because they’re the only ones with substantial baseball experience, Gallagher has it situated where in games the three are always playing either shortstop, catcher or pitcher. After that, he just tries to fill in the lineup. “It’s definitely not where I’d like to be. Haven’t won a game yet but it happens, can’t always win,” Piburn said. “The kids that will come up to the high school will still have it. So I’m glad to see that. It’s getting the kids the experience they will need next year. Hopefully they will use this experience as teaching.” Gallagher’s goal at the beginning of the season was five wins. Sitting at 0-8 with 11 games left, Gallagher thinks that’s not “ realistic,” but it’s all part of a bigger picture. On defense, outfield flyballs used to be demoralize Coquille. Now Gallagher says they catch about 80 percent. Gallagher struggled to pinpoint a single player who he thought had made the biggest strides. He says they all have. “We’re really getting better,” Gallagher said. “It’s not a competitive thing, they’re just having fun and that’s what we want.” It’s clear that success for Coquille doesn’t come from wins and losses this year. Gallagher’s overarching goal is to have kids stay the whole season, have fun and stay eligible. With how 2014 has gone so far, he feels like he’s getting pretty close. “My hope is that at the end of the year they have enough equipment, everything’s usable and everything’s in place,” Gallagher said. “We want to make sure we had our kids sticking with it.” Either way, the Red Devils are happy this spring can be baseball season again. “It’s really good to have it back,” Piburn said.

Kentucky Derby will have full field of 20 horses

Bandon’s golf team has strong finish THE WORLD Bandon’s golf team had its best all-around match in a tuneup for the upcoming district tournament at Bandon Crossings while finishing second to Oakridge on Monday. The same teams will be back at Bandon Crossings in less than two weeks for the two-day district tournament. Oakridge will be the favorite after again topping the rest of the teams, this time with a total of 337.

North Bend’s Tylan Corder fires a pitch to a South Umpqua batter Tuesday. Corder pitched a three-hitter with 12 strikeouts for the Bulldogs in their 10-2 victory.


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Twenty-one horses have been entered for Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, one more than the maximum field of 20. The entry box closed this morning, with the draw to determine post positions set for later in the afternoon. The field is limited to the top 20 horses based on points

earned in designated prep races. Leading the way is California Chrome, winner of the Santa Anita Derby. The colt is trained by 77year-old Art Sherman, who could become the oldest trainer to win the Kentucky Derby. Todd Pletcher will saddle four horses: Danza, Intense

Holiday, Vinceremos and We Miss Artie. Trainer Mike Maker has three horses: General a Rod, Harry’s Holiday and Vicar’s In Trouble. Trainer Bob Baffert, a three-time Derby winner, has two: Hoppertunity and Chitu. The 21st horse on the points list is Pablo Del Monte, who would need a

defection by early Friday 1 morning to get into the 1 ⁄4mile race. One of the favorites will be Wicked Strong, a horse owned by a Boston-based partnership group and named in honor of the victims of last year’s Boston Marathon bombing. He is trained by Jimmy Jerkens.

Bandon was second at 364, with Gold Beach third at 373. The Tigers and Panthers likely will be battling for the second state berth behind Oakridge. Dayne Miller of Creswell took medalist honors Monday with a 76, followed by Gold Beach’s Shane Roberts (78) and Brennan Eilek (79) and Oakridge brothers Gerry and Joel Snyder, who shot 79 and 80, respectively. Braden Fugate led Bandon with an 81 and all five Tigers shot below 100 for the first time.

“My goal was to keep the ball low,” he said. “I didn’t give up a lot of doubles or triples.” “Tylan is pretty versatile,” Horning said. “He’s come in in relief a bunch of times. It was nice to see him get a good, solid start.” Corder’s effort was important since North Bend

also has a doubleheader Friday and Inskeep, the regular catcher, is nursing an arm injury and unable to play behind the plate. That means Jackson, one of North Bend’s other starters, has taken on catching duties. “Great job by Hunter Jackson behind the plate,” Horning said. “He did well yesterday, too.” North Bend visits Sutherlin for a doubleheader Friday.

South Umpqua 10, North Bend 0, six innings: The Bulldogs weren’t ale to take out the best team in the Far West League, losing to South Umpqua in six innings. South Umpqua was able to put up two runs in each of the first three innings before North Bend pitcher Lindsay Henson stifled the Lancers bats for a couple of innings. “We actually held them for quite awhile,” North Bend head coach Meghan Thomsen said. “They were hitting pretty good. “To be honest, I think our defense was the best I’ve seen it. We really stood behind our pitchers. They were just hitting it in the gaps.” Alexis Westbrooks had four hits and two RBIs for the Lancers and Heylea Lowell had three doubles. Kadie Forderer hit a double for North Bend’s only extra-base hit. Next up for the Bulldogs is a home doubleheader against Far West League cellardweller Sutherlin on Friday.

Oakland loses another pitcher AUTO RACING ARLINGTON, Texas — NASCAR places Mears, Athletics right-hander A.J. Ambrose on probation THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Griffin is scheduled to have elbow surgery Wednesday, and will miss the entire season with fellow starter Jarrod Parker. Oakland manager Bob Melvin announced the plan for Griffin’s surgery on Tuesday, after the pitcher got a second opinion from Dr. Thomas Mehlhoff in Houston. Parker had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow during spring training. Parker, who had been expected to be Oakland’s The Associated Press opening day starter, and Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, right, congratulates members of his team during the second half in Game 5 against the Golden State Griffin combined for 26 victories last season. Warriors on Tuesday in Los Angeles. The Clippers won 113-103.

Clippers overcome distractions THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — Hours after owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life, the Los Angeles Clippers returned to an energized Staples Center and beat Golden State 113-103 on Tuesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series. DeAndre Jordan had 25 points, a playoff career high, and 18 rebounds while Chris Paul scored 20 points for the Clippers. Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers highfived each of his players near the bench in an uncommon display of excitement as the final seconds ticked away. Jamal Crawford of the Clippers hugged and slapped hands with fans at courtside on the way to the locker room. Commissioner Adam Silver also fined Sterling $2.5 million and called on NBA owners to force him to sell the team for making racist comments. The Clippers are on the brink of just their third playoff series victory since Sterling bought the team in 1981. Game 6 is Thursday night in Oakland. Crawford scored 19 points for the Clippers while Blake Griffin had 18 and Darren Collison 15.

Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 21 points. David Lee and Andre Iguodala scored 18 apiece while Stephen Curry had a so-so game with 17 points, including four 3-pointers. Wizards 75, Bulls 69: John Wall finished with 24 points and Nene scored 20 as Washington clinched the firstround series in five games. Bradley Beal scored 17 points, and the fifth-seeded Wizards advanced in the postseason for just the third time since the 1970s. They will meet Indiana or Atlanta in the Eastern Conference semifinals. It’s a huge step for a franchise that hadn’t been to the postseason since 2008, but with Wall and Beal leading the way, they won 44 games during the regular season. The Wizards turned a halftime tie into a nine-point lead heading into the fourth quarter and hung on down the stretch. Chicago’s comeback chances took a big hit early in the final quarter when Taj Gibson crumbled to the court clutching his left ankle after he tried to block a layup by Wall with the Wizards up by six points. He had to be helped off the court and did not return. Wall and Nene, back from a one-game

suspension for grabbing Butler’s head, both had seven rebounds. Marcin Gortat had two points and 13 rebounds. Grizzlies 100, Thunder 99, OT: Mike Miller scored 21 points and Memphis held off Oklahoma City in a record fourth straight overtime game to take a 3-2 lead in the first-round series. Oklahoma City rebounded a missed 3point attempt by Miller and called a timeout, trailing 100-99 with 2.9 seconds remaining. Kevin Durant of the Thunder missed a long 3-point attempt and teammate Serge Ibaka tipped the ball in on the rebound. The shot was reviewed and it was determined that it was released after the buzzer, ending the game. Zach Randolph added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who will host Game 6 on Thursday. Russell Westbrook had 30 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for the Thunder. Oklahoma City trailed by 20 points in the third quarter but trimmed its deficit to six by the start of the fourth quarter and finally took a 79-78 lead on a 3pointer by Durant. Consecutive baskets by Mike Conley put the Grizzlies up 87-82 with just under 4 minutes to play.

PRO BASKETBALL Mavericks will be without Blair tonight DALLAS — Dallas Mavericks center DeJuan Blair was suspended for Game 5 of the first-round series against San Antonio for kicking the Spurs’ Tiago Splitter in the head. Blair and Splitter got tangled up and fell to the court in the fourth quarter of San Antonio’s 93-89 victory in Dallas on Monday night. After the whistle blew, signaling a foul on Blair, he kicked his former teammate with his left foot.

Assistant reportedly recorded players, coaches LOS ANGELES — A former assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors reportedly recorded conversations of coaches and players without their knowledge before being fired by the team earlier this month. ESPN, citing anonymous sources, reported that Darren Erman secretly recorded coaches’ meetings, conversations between coaches and players, and informal discussions. It’s unclear what Erman did with the alleged recordings. Golden State fired Erman on April 5 for what the team called a “violation of company policy.”

Montoya will return to NASCAR for two races MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Juan Pablo Montoya will make a two-race return to NASCAR this season, driving for Team Penske in the Brickyard 400 and at Michigan International Speedway. Montoya spent the last eight years in NASCAR before making his return this season to open-wheel racing. Montoya will drive the No. 12 Ford Fusion on June 15 at Michigan and the July 27 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Montoya is set to race in both the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400.

Busch had a solid showing in testing at the Brickyard’s historic 2.5-mile oval on Tuesday. He’s the fourth driver to try to compete in the Indianapolis 500 and CocaCola 600 on the same day. Both races are scheduled for May 25.

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets remain confident they can rebound from a 3-1 deficit in their first-round playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers. But just in case they needed a reminder that such a comeback was possible, coach Kevin McHale had Mario Elie and Hakeem Olajuwon talk to his team as it prepares for Game 5 tonight. They helped the Rockets bounce back from the same deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns in seven games in the Western Conference semifinals in 1995 en route to an NBA title. “You focus just on the one game (Wednesday) and shift the game back to Portland (and) there will be tremendous pressure on the Portland team,” Olajuwon said. “You have no choice right now. You’ve got to focus.” Despite their pep talk, the Rockets aren’t sugar-coating their situation. “It’s desperation time,” Chandler Parsons said. “We don’t want our season to end and if we lose that’s going to happen. All of our backs are against the wall and we’ve just got to be a resilient

team.” Dwight Howard isn’t ready for his first season in Houston to be over, either, and is working to ensure that he and his teammates don’t let another one get away. Three of the four games in this series have been decided in overtime and two of Houston’s three losses were by a total of five points. “We’ve got to really believe and that’s the only way we’re going to win it,” Howard said. “It starts with myself and James (Harden).” Harden scored 37 points in Houston’s lone victory, but has struggled against the Blazers, making just 36 of 103 shots combined in the four games. Portland’s Damian Lillard knows the Blazers will get Houston’s best shot on Wednesday night and this will be their biggest test yet. “Houston will show a lot of fight,” he said. “I believe 100 percent that they feel like they can still win the series. It will be hard to put them away. We’ve got to take it up a level because they will try to keep their season alive.” The Trail Blazers have lost in the first round in their last six trips to the playoffs. A win Wednesday would put them

in the second round for the first time since losing in the Western Conference finals in 2000. “We want to finish the series right now and it’s going to take a lot of focus from our team and a lot of mental toughness and togetherness,” Lillard said. “That’s the only way we’re going to get it done on the

road.” If Houston wants to keep its season alive, it will have to stay focused on trying to slow down LaMarcus Aldridge. He combined for 89 points in the first two games of the series but cooled down a bit in Portland, and had 23 and 29 points in the two games there.

last four days. They had great mental toughness tonight.” Even while Sterling contemplates his next move, the Clippers organization rushed to distance itself from Sterling. Shortly after Silver’s announcement, the Clippers’ website featured only a black screen with a simple message: “We are one.” The mantra was repeated by the team’s public-address announcers and chanted by their fans several times during their playoff game. Sterling is banned from Staples Center and the Clippers’ training complex in Playa Vista, a beautiful $60

million facility constructed by Sterling. He is prevented from participating in any decisions by the Clippers, or from any league activity, including board of governors meetings. Most of the advertising signage at Staples Center was either covered in black cloth or removed for the game. Many sponsors dropped the Clippers or re-evaluated their relationships with the NBA over the past several days, and Silver is hopeful they will return with Sterling’s departure. Sterling’s long-estranged wife, Rochelle, watched the

game from a seat in the lower bowl, not in the courtside chairs usually occupied by the couple — or by Donald Sterling and a string of young female friends. One of those friends, V. Stiviano, was the other voice on the recordings made public last week. Silver said Sterling had confirmed his voice was on the recordings. He criticized Stiviano for posting pictures of herself online with black athletes Magic Johnson and Matt Kemp. “Don’t bring him to my games,” Sterling said of Johnson, the former Lakers star and current Los Angeles

Dodgers owner. “Yeah, it bothers me a lot that you want to promo, broadcast, that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” Despite the urgency of the potential move, Sterling seems almost certain to get the highest sale price in history for an NBA franchise if he is indeed forced to sell. After decades of incompetence under Sterling’s watch, the Clippers are now a successful team located in glamorous Los Angeles — and they’re about to get much more valuable when they sign a new broadcast deal in 2016.

The A’s went ahead to stay on Norris’ two-run double in the first off Perez (4-1), who had pitched 26 consecutive scoreless innings over his previous three starts.

Cano got a mock cheer when he struck out to end the inning, then was met with chants of “You sold out!” from the Bleacher Creatures when he took his spot at second base. When Cano grounded out to first base in the fourth,

DIY cleaning products tips and tricks Have you checked the list of ingredients on those bottles of cleaning products under the sink? Can you eve n p ro n o u n ce t h e m ? Yikes! I can tell you that a product name containing “petro” belongs at the gas s ta t i o n , not used EVERYDAY to clean CHEAPSKATE y o u r home. To d ay I want to s h a r e with you a list of squeakyclean, toxinf r e e Mary cleaning Hunt t i p s u s i n g the three items very likely found in your kitchen at t h i s m o m e n t — ba k i n g soda, white vinegar and lemons. Clean up the coffee m a k e r . Get your coffee maker back into new condition by running a cycle using white vinegar in place of water. The vinegar will break up mineral build-up and deodorize the machine at the same time. Be sure to rinse out every trace of vinegar before brewing up your next pot, by running plain water through it a few times. Va c uu m u p p et d an d e r and odor. If you have pets, you have no idea what is lurking in your carpeting. We’re talking dander and hairballs, and other things not so lovely. So do this: Sprinkle a little baking soda across your carpet and wait 15 minutes while it works its magic. Next, vacuum (you remember my favorite vacu u m , r i g h t ? eve ryd ay u m ) t h e a rea s wh e re you’ve sprinkled the baking soda. You’ll be shocked and amazed at how much more pet dander is pulled out of the carpet and how fresh your home smells afterward. Unless you’re getting rid of the pets anytime soon, you’ll want to do this vacuuming trick often. Wash out the washing m a c h i n e . Get rid of the musty smell in your washing machine by using white vinegar to a load of wash. It will pull that stinky smell right out. Added bonus: Vinegar also acts as a wonderful and completely natural fabric softener. D e od o r iz e t h e d is p o sa l . If your stinky disposal is setting off odor alarms in your kitchen, toss a handful or two of ice down the disposal, throw in a couple of lemon wedges and turn it on. The ice chunks will clear out any gunk hanging around and the lemon will deodorize and clean. Nuke the microwave. Deodorize and clean your microwave with nothing more than two tablespoons of baking soda and a cup of water. Combine the two in a bowl, microwave for 3 minutes on full power. Remove the bowl (it will be hot, so be careful!) and wipe out the interior. Done. Clean! Clean the toilet. This is so easy. Toss a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl. Let it soak for an hour. Next add one cup of white vinegar. Wait 10 more minutes. Flush. Toilet clean without scrubbing! Hint: Use a toilet brush for an occasional scrub of the spots under the rim.
