Sophomores Johnny Rowe, left, and Tyler Neuschwander use game controllers to drive and move a robot the Coquille High School DevilBots club created to enter in the FIRST Tech Challenge robotics competition. A computer program that a student wrote controls the robot, which is designed to perform tasks such as raising a flag and moving blocks.

Robot-in-training Coquille High DevilBots program builds robot for upcoming competition


COQUILLE — A robot is coming to life at Coquille High. Nine DevilBots chowed down on lunch Thursday afternoon while deliberating w h a t tweaks still need to be See the video for this made for story online at t h e i r robot to be competition-ready. Three years ago, Coquille schools superintendent Tim Sweeney approached teachers Don Swenson and Amy Holbrook with the idea of starting a robotics club at the school. Four students signed up. “The sophomores are driv-

ing this thing,” Swenson said. “In a couple of years they’ll have a lot of experience.” Every September, FIRST Tech Challenge announces the “game.” Teams have to program and build a robot that can complete the tasks during competition. This year’s theme is “Block Party,” which has three tasks. First, students enter autonomous mode, where they have to create a program on the computer which controls the robot hands-free. Next, they have two minutes for the robot to pick up as

many blocks as possible and drop them in nearby bins. Finally, it’s time for the “end game.” The robot essentially has to do a pullup by itself on the overhang — a task the students are still struggling with. “The issue is it’s so heavy ... it’s hard to lift,” club President Zach Amavisca said. Last year, the DevilBots made it to the semifinals, he said — a big feat considering their relative lack of experience. They’re up against around 130 schools — mostly from

metro areas like Portland, Hillsboro and Tualatin — but they’re not backing down. “They might be intimidated by the robots, but not by the teams,” Swenson said. Two qualifying tournaments are coming up, on Feb. 15 in Junction City and Feb. 22 in Glide. If they qualify, they go to the state competition on March 2 in Portland. From there, 11 teams go to the western regional championship on March 20 in Sacramento, Calif. The final showdown is the world championship on April 23 in St. Louis, Mo. If the DevilBots don’t qualify, it’s time to “lick their wounds” and go “back to the drawing board” for next year, Swenson said.

GRANTS PASS — Federal scientists have agreed to review the environmental evidence gathered by state agencies after rural residents in Curry County complained they got sick after being sprayed by herbicides meant for nearby timberlands. Scientists from the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry will work with Oregon state agencies to determine whether enough environmental data has been gathered to make a meaningful determination of the pesticide exposure in the community, spokeswoman Susan McBreairty said Thursday. If there is enough data, the scientists from the agency — a branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — will do the evaluation. The pesticides watchdog group Beyond Toxics of Eugene had petitioned the agency to get involved in the investigation into complaints last October from two dozen residents of the Cedar Valley area north of Gold Beach. They complained of vomiting, coughing, loss of balance, skin rashes, blurry vision and other ailments. Some also reported their animals were sickened. They say they want to know to what chemicals they were exposed. John Burns, assistant chief of the local volunteer fire department, said he hoped the federal review would speed up action on their complaints, particularly letting people know just what they were exposed to, so that doctors can treat them. Nearly three months later, he said, he still suffers nosebleeds and blurry vision, gets tired easily and is unsteady on his feet. “The biggest frustration for myself and most of the people out here is we haven’t been given the actual cocktail mix of what was sprayed on us,” he said. “Why is it such a secret that we can’t find out what this stuff was that was sprayed on us?” The Oregon Department of Agriculture has been investigating. In November, department pesticides program manager Dale Mitchell said the agency monitored the Oct. 16 spraying on nearby timberlands owned by Crook Timberlands LLC of Coos Bay. After people complained of being sick, vegetation samples from four properties were taken. “Our approach is to work in partnership on these issues with other state and federal agencies,” department spokesman Bruce Pokarney said. “That has been the case with the Triangle SEE HERBICIDES | A8


Faulty Chevron station tank leads to water in auto tanks


NORTH BEND — One local repair shop is finding water in several drivers’ gas tanks who fueled up at Chevron’s North Bend station in the last week. Bayshore Auto manager Russ Blean said so far two customers have come to the shop with the same problem. Marti Sharp, general counsel and compliance officer for Carson Oil Company, which manages and operates the Chevron station on Virginia Avenue in North Bend, said seven vehicles were impacted and all will be reimbursed by Carson Oil for repairs. “Think of it like a milk jug and the lid wasn’t on tight,” Sharp said of the malfunctioning equipment. “We discovered through our tank moni-

toring system that we might have an issue with one particular tank at that Chevron station.” As soon as the monitoring system detected an issue, the tank shut down, she said. Crews excavated concrete and soil surrounding the tank and found one of its fittings had malfunctioned following a recent water main break. “The problem was ... so much water flowed over the top of the tank and this faulty component had never been flooded before,” she said. The fitting was replaced and crews will inspect the tank next week before it’s put back in service. In the meantime, Sharp said customers can still fill up their cars since the remaining tanks were not impacted. “The first customer had at least 50 percent water (in her tank),” Blean said. “The one yesterday got

fuel and didn’t put the two together, because his car started running really rough. It was full of water, too.” Drivers will notice their cars running poorly if there’s water in the gas tank, he said. “Water (doesn’t) burn so it causes misfires and it can also damage the fuel injector because they aren’t made to pass water as fuel,” he said. “And it plugs up the fuel filter, so we have to replace that. As far as major damage, I don’t think they’d be able to drive it far enough to cause major damage because it just runs so rough.” Each customer had to shell out $160 to $200 to fix the problem, Blean said.

Coquille player wins Gresham Open

The three best Coquille chess players attended the Gresham Open on Jan. 4-5. Aaron Grabinsky won overall, beating many experts and National Master Nick Raptis, the highest rated player in Oregon, to get first place. Though he had hoped to earn the National Master title, his calculated rating still places him 15 points shy of the 2,200 WEDNESDAY rating needed for this title. He Coquille School District No. 8 — started the tournament rated 6 p.m., Lincoln Elementary, at 2,165 and is now 2,185. 1366 N. Gould, Coquille; reguDuring Aaron’s last game, lar meeting. he thought his opponent had a

perpetual check so he offered a draw. After the draw was accepted, all the high-ranking players on his table crowded over the game remains and pointed out an alternate way to escape the perpetual check. Aaron attributes missing the escape route to the fatigue after playing the National Master the previous round. Aaron still won four of five games, putting him in first place. Joshua Grabinsky, rated 1,405, won the Class C division (1,400 to 1,599) with his three and a half wins beating

players over 400 points above him. He earned nearly 150 rating points and is quickly moving up the rating scales. Josiah Perkins, rated 1,599, had a rockier course in the tournament but earned enough points to tip him over to become a Class B player that requires a rating of over 1,600. Aaron has another chance to earn the National Master title in February during the Oregon Closed that invites only the top 20 players in Oregon, a five-day event over two weekends in Portland.

Look Up While out riding my horse, I happened to come upon an area that had been burned. The smell of smoke still hung in the air and death seemed everywhere. There was no wildlife, not even an occasional chipmunk that is so often seen in the woods. Hunters were off in the distance hoping to find some game, but there was none to be seen. After reaching the top of the knoll, I looked off into the distance and across the tops of the green trees that graced another area of the country, I could see the ocean. It was a picturesque scene, inviting everyone who saw it to journey to its shores and enjoy the quietness and to drink in its beauty. The world we live in can be depressing. All we see from the news, entertainment industry and the political scene, can cause one to wonder if this is all worth it. If, however, we were to look up, we would see something entirely different. God is still in control and He invites us to lift up our eyes and focus on Him. He has so much to give, if we would only accept His invitation. Come and see us tomorrow.

Brookings cops seek man after pursuit Brookings police are looking for a man they say managed to ditch them after a backroad pursuit Wednesday night. According to the Brookings Police Department, John G. Wilber, 42, of Port Orford, who they say formerly lived in Brookings fled from police in his Toyota pickup shortly after providing identification. Officers lost track of the truck after it headed off down a logging road, which their patrol cars were unable to traverse. Brookings police, along with Curry County sheriff’s deputies and the Oregon State Police, found the truck the next morning about 2 miles up the road system. Anyone with information about Wilber’s whereabouts is asked to call the Brookings Police Department at 541469-3118.

An island with a solar future Our view Solar energy is an economic reality we can take advantage of right now.

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

In thinking about the South Coast from an island point of view, one issue that deserves consideration is – how do we stay warm? How do we run our electronic gadgets? How do we get from here to there? In other words, how much basic energy can we produce right here in our own backyard? As always, our biggest challenge is the Coast Range. In this case, our exquisitely panoramic geography becomes a hindrance for one popular alternative — wind. Certainly, our magnificent storms contain a lot of energy potential. But experts acknowledge that, for cur-

rent technology, the topography creates a turbulence that difficult to harness. There is definitely potential for wind generation far offshore, but that technology is still in the research phase. Same for wave energy. Again, spectacular storms suggest huge untapped energy potential. But the trick remains in finding the right generation system and the right locations — and being able to make the process economically feasible. But another alternative is currently “ready for prime time,” so to speak, and that's solar. If you’re raising your eyebrows (we did, at first), you'll

find that solar technology has progressed remarkably, and the cost of solar panels has come down significantly in the last decade, according to Shannon Souza, environmental engineer and energy systems designer for Sol Coast Consulting and Design. (That’s thanks to German engineering, Souza says.) And we’ve already got examples of solar right here in Coos Bay. They’re not obvious unless you look up, but the downtown visitors center is partially powered by solar panels. And last October the Oregon Coast Community Action Child and Family Resource Center flipped the switch on its solar

energy system. ORCCA also has solar on some of its low income housing complexes. The technology is solid enough now that it qualifies for tax incentives and financing. And it’s available for all kinds of structures, business and private. Solar is an alternative that we could be taking better advantage of right now, while research continues on offshore wind, biomass and wave technologies. We know this works for our island. And we’ve decided to get an estimate and find out if it will work right here, at the offices of The World. We'll let you know what we find out.

Learn to earn A new apprenticeship program for Reedsport High shop students is great news. A grant from the state Department of Education and Bureau of Labor and Industries will create a program focusing on marine welding, machining and fabrication and general welding. A road construction apprenticeship will be added later. We all know that high school should be more than just college prep and sports. It should be about “life” prep.

Just as you always imagined This, from a story last week about the state of Oregon evaluating what its managers do: “... managers in state government don’t renegotiate their contracts. Their jobs can go unexamined for years … the result … is that the state doesn’t have a clear idea which managers are really in charge of what, whether they’re actually getting results or whether they’ve being paid what they should be.” We can’t improve on this one. Feel free to make up your own comment.

Say cheese! Hats off to the folks who run Ready to Smile. They’re kind of like the Bookmobile of dental hygiene, taking their portable dentist office to the far corners of the South Coast to deliver free, basic health services to school kids. “It’s better than class,” said Jarrod Canaday, a Myrtle Point seventh-grader. High praise, indeed!

Three-alarm rip off Someone apparently stole a few hundred dollars from the Gardiner Volunteer Fire Department late last month. It was found missing from a filing cabinet in the fire hall.The cash is used to fund weekend pancake breakfasts and the annual Fourth of July fireworks and other things. Another bag with stickers that read “Support your Local Fire Department” also was pilfered. What’s wrong with some people?

Playing through Like golf? Not like Tim Scott, we bet. On Dec. 21 the executive director of Speedgolf International played all five courses at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in less than five hours. Not only did he score in the mid80s or better on the four regular courses and shoot 6-over on the 13hole Bandon Preserve, he raised nearly $25,000 for the Ocular Melanoma Foundation. He’s battling the disease he himself has by raising funds to find a cure.

Remembering the fallen U.S. military death toll in Afghanistan as of Friday:


Letters to the Editor A health care success story It’s official! The Affordable Care Act works for me. I’m enrolled and my first payment has been received. As a direct result of the ACA, my monthly premium is 41 percent less than what Blue Cross/Blue Shield wanted for the EXACT same coverage,same doctors, same everything. And, that is WITHOUT any tax credits. I’m one of the ones you’re hearing about who received a notice from BC/BS stating my personal policy was being canceled — because it did not meet the minimum coverage required by the ACA. I have no health issues and have not filed a claim of any kind during the entire time I’ve been insured under this policy. I’d been a BC/BS personal policy holder since 2009 when my COBRA expired after I lost my job

to downsizing. Over the last four years BC/BS increased my premium 38 percent and the only change in benefits, primarily, was the addition of an annual checkup beginning in 2011, as required by the ACA. BC/BS was more than happy to offer me a replacement policy at another 6 percent increase over what I have been paying them this past year with no change in benefits. If I had stayed with BC/BS my insurance premium would have been 45 percent of my fixed income. I went shopping at the Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace website. There were hundreds of options — many providers, many types of networks,and many levels of coverage.I started at the website the second week in November and my coverage was effective Jan. 1. I spoke with someone on the phone four times, and they answered questions and helped get my application processed.

People ask me all the time why I call Oregon my home when all of my family is in the Midwest. I tell them about how beautiful it is and about the friendliness of the people. To all my friends, especially those in Michigan and Texas, this is another reason I’m happy and proud to be an Oregonian. Oregon didn’t waste time trying to repeal or defund the ACA. They sat down and came up with a plan to make a health insurance marketplace work for people — and it does. Dolly Brock Bandon

Successful Bus Jam for holiday Neighbors and businesses contributed food and toys to the Bus Jam again this year. Almost 650 children received new toys and stocking stuffers for

Christmas because of your generosity. I want to take the time to thank all those that spent long hours separating thousands of toys and stocking stuffers. Thanks to our staff that gave their time freely, on a Saturday, making sure each parent received enough nice toys in hopes that each child would have a memorable Christmas. It’s a lot of hard work setting the room up as if it was a big city toy store. They turned our conference room into a Santa’s Wonderland. The staff did this so the folks would feel the joy of the season and not worry about financial hardships, if only for a while. The magic of Christmas is alive and well at the Newmark Center. Thanks to all! Laurie Voshell Coos Bay

Is America going to pot — literally? Smoking Marlboros is now forbidden in Irish bars in New York City. But buying, selling, and smoking marijuana is legal in Colorado. It doesn’t take a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. One certain result of the legalization of marijuana is that there are going to be more potheads, more dropouts, and more deaths on highways from those high or stoned — and more rehab centers. Scores of thousands of Coloradans may relish the freedom they have voted for themselves. But the costs will be borne by society and the families of future victims of potheads behind the wheel. So it has been with alcohol. All of us can recall classmates injured and dead in auto accidents, jobs lost by friends, lives destroyed, and families smashed because of booze. Just as beer opens the door for the young to bourbon, scotch, gin and vodka, marijuana is the gateway drug, the escalator drug, to cocaine and heroin. And if marijuana sales bring in the revenue Colorado envisions, other states will follow suit, and some state will become the first to decriminalize cocaine. It was half a century ago that pot first began to replace alcohol as the drug of choice for baby

boomers arriving on campuses in 1964. Yet not until the boomers began moving onto Social Security rolls did the first state legalize marijuana for PAT personal enjoy- BUCHANAN ment. Yet, as with Columnist same-sex marriage, now legal in 16 or 17 states, the legalization of marijuana appears to be an idea whose time has come. What does this tell us about our country? America is not only diversifying racially, ethnically and religiously as a result of continuous mass immigration, legal and illegal. We are diversifying, and disuniting morally, culturally, and politically. Not so very long ago, the U.S. government enforced Prohibition, pronounced smoking a menace to the national health, punished gambling as organized crime, and declared a war on drugs. Now the government has shouldered aside organized crime to take over, tax, and regulate the rackets. At federal, state and local levels, the government rakes off vast revenues from taxes on booze, bars, cigarettes, casinos

and, coming soon, online poker. Contraceptives are now handed out to high schoolers and a right to contraception has been written into Obamacare. Abortion and homosexuality used to be scandalous. Now they are constitutional rights and popular social causes, and same-sex marriage is the civil rights cause of the 21st century. As Justice Antonin Scalia noted, if tradition, religious beliefs, or a community animus against conduct is insufficient to restrict private behavior, upon what legal ground do we stand upon to outlaw polygamy, adult incest, or prostitution? Yet traditional America is not rolling over and playing dead. “Abortion rights” face new restrictions in state after state,as a new generation appears more pro-life than its parents. And as the A&E network discovered when it sought to suspend “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson for his biblical reflections, the silent majority remains faithful to the traditional morality. And while a libertarianism of the left appears ascendant, there is also a rising and militant libertarianism of the right. We have seen it manifest in the explosion of “stand your ground” and concealed-carry laws, opposition to federal background

checks for gun owners, and ferocious resistance to the outlawing of assault rifles and 30-round magazines. In that Colorado where pot is now legal, state senators have been recalled for insufficient devotion to Second Amendment rights. And there are bubbling secessionist movements in states like Colorado, of folks who would like to separate themselves from places like Denver. The triumph of the sexual revolution has not been without its casualties, e.g., an endless supply of new HIV/AIDS and STD cases and a national illegitimacy rate of over 40 percent of all births. And the correlation between that illegitimacy rate and the dropout rate, drug use rate, delinquency rate, crime rate, and incarceration rate is absolute. Undeniably, the claims of the individual to maximum autonomy and freedom appear triumphant over the claims of community. The clamor of me is prevailing over the claims of us. But in yielding, America has not only tossed overboard the moral compass that guided us for two centuries. We no longer even agree on what is “True North” anymore.

Obituaries Wife says husband considers leaving DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are a young couple, married almost two years. He recently told me he isn’t happy with me anymore and that he may want to leave. He won’t tell me why. He says he doesn’t know why. It was a complete shock to me. He refuses to seek marriage counseling and has dealt with a lot of depression for which he won’t seek help, either. We have a child, and I am now pregnant again. It hasn’t changed his thoughts about leaving. What should I do for myself and our children? What can I do to help my husband change his mind? I’m still deeply in love with him. — CONFUSED IN SOUTH CAROLINA D E A R C O N DEAR FUSED : I can only imagine how painful this must be for you. Because your husband won’t see a counselor about JEANNE marPHILLIPS your riage or do anything about his depression, then YOU should. And when you do, start figuring out a “plan B” for how you will support your children if it becomes necessary. You should also consult an attorney who can help you ensure that your husband lives up to his responsibilities if he does decide to leave. The reason for your husband’s ambivalence will become apparent in time. You may love him deeply, but for your sake and that of your children, it’s important you stay calm and rational. D E A R A B B Y : I’m a 17year-old girl, turning 18 soon. Ever since I started high school, my family has pressured me to do my best in everything I do. Some examples: my grades, having the perfect boyfriend and being first in sports. I know they want the best for me. But I’m a human being. I sometimes make mistakes. At the same time, I don’t want to disappoint them. What should I do? Should I tell them to get off my back or continue to accept their pressure? — TEEN IN TURMOIL, TULSA, OKLA. DEAR TEEN: Your parents probably push you because they want you to get a college education. Good grades, various activities and a talent for sports can make you a more attractive candidate. There are ways to tell your parents to ease up without saying, “Get off my back.” Your message might be better received if you said to them what you wrote to me: “I know you want what’s best for me. I don’t want to disappoint you. But I’m a human being and I sometimes make mistakes. I love you, but the pressure is getting to me.” It’s not hostile, and they may hear what you’re saying without becoming defensive. DEAR ABBY: My brotherin-law is a registered sex offender. I am uncomfortable having him stay at our house with my husband and me and our children. My mother-inlaw insists we need to forgive him and let him stay. I hate putting my husband in the middle (it is his sister’s husband), but I do not want him under our roof overnight. Am I right to refuse, or do I let him stay and be on major guard? — MOMMY IN MEMPHIS D E A R M O M M Y : As a mother, it is your job to protect your children. Because you feel your brother-in-law might be a danger to them, he should sleep elsewhere — and “forgiveness” has nothing to do with it.

Judge Robert Eugene Jones Jan. 15, 1924 – Jan. 3, 2014

A private family service has already been held for Robert E. Jones, 89, of Coos Bay. Private cremation rites were held at Ocean View Memory Gardens in Coos Bay. Robert was born Jan. 15, 1924, in Oregon City, to Claude and Gladys Jones. He passed away peacefully Jan. 3, 2014, at his home in Coos Bay with family by his side. A f t e r graduation from Grant High School in Portland, Bob enlisted Judge Robert in the U.S. Jones Army Air Force and spent part of World War II in the South Pacific. While in the service he attended school at the University of California at Berkeley to become a weather observer, a skill he retained until very late in life, resulting in the fact that his four sons, Jeff, Steve, Gene, Greg and Bob’s wife, Sela, know a lot more about

cumulus clouds than any of them think is really necessary. Like many other veterans, when WWII ended he went to school on the GI Bill. He started at Oregon State with the intention of becoming an engineer but after two years, decided he was more interested in and better suited for the study of law. He transferred to the University of Oregon and after graduation entered and graduated from law school there as well. First jobs after law school consisted of working as an insurance adjuster and later as a defense attorney for the state Insurance Accident Commission. This involved a tremendous amount of trial work which proved invaluable when he decided to join his law school friends, Robert C. Belloni and Maurice V. Engelgau in private practice in Coos County. Their firm was unusual at that time because Bob Belloni practiced in Myrtle Point, Maurie Engelgau in Coquille and Jones in Coos Bay and later in North Bend in Pony Village. It was after he moved his office to North Bend that he became a parttime municipal judge of the city of North Bend. In 1975 it was decided that another

Missing plane found in Idaho STATE BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The wreckage of a small plane carrying five people, including a Silicon Valley executive, was found Friday after vanishing in the central Idaho mountains on Dec. 1, the Valley County sheriff’s office said. There were no survivors. Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Smith said Friday that an incoming storm may delay recovery efforts. The single-engine plane was occupied by 51-year-old pilot, Dale Smith, a software executive from San Jose, Calif.; his son, Daniel Smith and his wife, Sheree Smith; and daughter Amber Smith with her fiance, Jonathon Norton. The plane was flying from eastern Oregon, where the family had been spending the Thanksgiving holiday, to Montana, where Daniel and Sheree Smith live, on Dec. 1 when it disappeared in the mountains 150 miles northeast of Boise.

Doctor suspended for stem cell treatment

Proposal to shut down Cover Oregon SALEM (AP) — A Republican state lawmaker who’s running for governor says he’ll introduce legislation to shut down the state’s troubled health insurance exchange. Dennis Richardson of Central Point said Friday he’ll propose that Oregon hand over its exchange to the federal government, which runs the operation for 36 other states. The announcement came from Richardson’s campaign for governor. He’s running for the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic Gov. John K itzhaber in the November election.

PORTLAND (AP) — The Oregon Medical Board has issued a rare emergency suspension of a Eugene physician’s license after the doctor conducted experimental stem cell treatments on patients. The board considers Dr. Kenneth Welker’s medical practice an immediate danger to the public. Welker can appeal the suspension issued Thursday. He did not return calls from The Associated Press on Friday. According to his online biography, Welker is a trained surgeon who quit his practice to pursue alternative medicine in 2007. In May 2013, the board’s suspension order says Welker injected processed stem cells into the spine of a 62-year-old woman, and was confused when she began to sweat and feel tingling in her extremities.

Treasurer not sold on Columbia bridge plan

EUGENE (AP) — An Oregon state senator says he’s bringing back a provision to require background checks on all private gun sales and transfers, except between extended family members. Current Oregon law requires background checks for sales of guns by federally licensed dealers and at gun shows, but not for personto-person or online sales. The Eugene RegisterGuard reports that an almost identical provision that was part of a larger package of

PORTLAND (AP) — State Treasurer Ted Wheeler says he’s not convinced Oregon can collect the tolls needed to pay for an Interstate 5 bridge over the Columbia River — and he’ll need to be persuaded before he’ll OK construction debt. Wheeler says a consultant company’s analysis of the plan for Oregon to go it alone on the bridge shows that tolls could generate enough revenue. But the Washington state government dropped out of the project, and Wheeler says that raises questions about collecting tolls from Washington drivers. The Oregonian reports Wheeler wants assurances Oregon will have authority to collect from Washington residents.

Nation Records show worries about bad publicity in NJ traffic-jam scandal ND ATIONAL I G E S T TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Officials squabbled over media leaks and worried about bad publicity in the days after lane closings near the George Washington Bridge caused huge traffic jams that now appear to have been politically orchestrated by a member of Gov. Chris Christie’s administration and key allies, documents released Friday show. In the documents, officials appointed by Christie seemed more concerned about the political fallout than the effects of the gridlock in the town of Fort Lee during four mornings in September. The thousands of pages were released by a New Jersey legislative committee investigating the scandal. The documents mostly involve the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that runs the bridge.

67 Dems support GOP’s health law bill WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led House voted overwhelmingly

Friday to bolt new security requirements onto President Barack Obama’s health care law, with 67 Democrats breaking ranks to join with the GOP. It was the first skirmish of what is certain to be a long and contentious election-year fight. The vote was 291-122 with Republicans relentlessly focusing on “Obamacare,” convinced that Americans’ unease with the troubled law will translate into significant election gains in November. Dozens of Democrats, nervous about their re-election chances or their campaigns for other offices, voted for the GOP bill. Among the Democrats joining the Republicans was Rep. Steve Israel of New York, the chairman of his party’s campaign committee dedicated to electing Democrats.

W.Va. capital at standstill after unknown-size chemical spill CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A chemical spill left the water for 300,000 people in and around West Virginia’s capital city stained blue-green and smelling like licorice, with officials saying Friday it was unclear when it might be safe again to even take showers and do laundry. Federal authorities began investigating how the foaming agent escaped a chemical plant and seeped into the Elk River. Just how much of the chemical leaked into the river was not yet known. Officials are working with the company that makes the chemical to determine how much can be in the water without it posing harm to residents, said West Virginia American Water president Jeff McIntyre. “We don’t know that the water’s not safe. But I can’t say that it is safe,” McIntyre said Friday. For now, there is no way to treat the tainted water aside from flushing the system until it’s in lowenough concentrations to be safe, a process that could take days. Officials and experts said the chemical, even in its most concentrated form, isn’t deadly. However, people across nine counties were

No more than six people have been brought into emergency rooms with symptoms that may stem

from the chemical, and none was in serious or critical condition, said State Department of Health & Human Resources Secretary Karen L. Bowling. The company where the leak occurred, Freedom Industries, discovered Thursday morning about 10:30 a.m. that the chemical

was leaking from the bottom of a storage tank, said its president, Gary Southern. Southern said the company worked all day and through the night to remove the chemical from the site and take it elsewhere. Vacuum trucks were used to remove the chemical from the ground at the site.

Federal recognition granted to same-sex marriages in Utah SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The U.S. attorney general said Friday that the federal government would recognize same-sex unions in Utah, marking the latest significant show of support for gay marriage from the Obama administration. The action means that more than 1,000 same-sex couples who were married in Utah in the last month can file federal taxes jointly, get Social Security benefits for spouses and request legal immigration status for part-

ners, among other benefits. The declaration by Attorney General Eric Holder marked the latest chapter in the legal battle over same-sex marriage in Utah that has sent couples and state officials on a helter-skelter wave of emotions over the last three weeks. A federal judge overturned Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage on Dec. 20, and hundreds of couples got married. The U.S. Supreme Court intervened this week and put a halt to the weddings until the courts sort out the matter.

The latest bout of violence broke out a week ago across northern Syria and is the most serious among opponents of Assad since the civil war began. The Britain-based Syrian The Associated Press Observatory for Human Syrian citizens pray Friday over the coffins wrapped by Syrian flags for the victims who were killed Thursday by a car bomb, during their funeral processions, at al-Kaffat village in the central Hama province, Syria.

The rebel-on-rebel clashes have overshadowed the battle against President Bashar Assad and underscore the perils for civilians caught in the crossfire of two parallel wars.

Haiti builds stronger after quake, gaps remain PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — On a steep hillside on the edge of Haiti’s capital, Pacha Jeudy slaps soupy cement onto jagged cinderblocks and stacks them into a wobbly wall. The home looks likely to collapse in a big earthquake, just as his neighbors’ houses did in the January 2010 temblor. Less than a mile down the hill, construction workers are adding two floors to a three-story office building. The owners couldn’t be located to explain their plans for the structure, but steel reinforcing bars extending toward the sky suggest that yet another floor beyond those five is in the works. “That building kind of gives you the willies,” said Dany Tremblay, a licensed structural engineer from Utah who has designed and inspected hundreds of buildings in Haiti since the quake. “I would be surprised that, by adding those levels, the building is still structurally sound.”

US pulls diplomat from India NEW DELHI (AP) — The United States said Friday it was withdrawing a diplomat from India in hopes it would end a bitter dispute that started with the arrest and strip search of an Indian diplomat in New York. Wa s h i n g to n ’s announcement that it was complying with a demand from New Delhi for the expulsion of the U.S. official came hours after Devyani Khobragade, India’s deputy consul general in New York, left the U.S. Khobragade, 39, is accused of exploiting her Indian-born housekeeper and nanny, allegedly having her work more than 100 hours a week for low pay and lying about it on a visa form.

South Coast Trying to avert civil war in S. Sudan

By Alysha Beck, The World

The Coquille High School DevilBots club robot is driven under the table where sophomores, from left, Hannah Elmer, Anna Sweeney and Nancy Ferrer sit during the club’s lunchtime meeting on Thursday.

ROBOT Leading to fields in college Continued from Page A1 Amavisca, the chief programmer, said the DevilBots have to construct a field as identical as possible to the field that will be provided during competition. The sophomores used what they could find in the shop to construct a ramp, overhang and blocks. The DevilBots are learn-

He said the helicopter they hired was loaded from a site on their property, and never flew over Cedar Valley. He added that a person from Oregon Department of

ing engineering, robotics, 3-D printing, CAD design and more, Swenson said. Their work falls in line with one of the many buzzwords in education today: “STEM,” or Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Swenson is confident most of the DevilBots will go on to STEM fields. “This is where their interests lie, in building, in programming,” Swenson said. “They’re the ones that will lead the way.” His son, Ryan, plans on

Forestry was on site monitoring. Barnes said he has identified another spray operation going on that day, and passed the information on to Department of Agriculture. He would not identify the company. Pokarney said they would have no more to say about the investigation until it was finished. Lisa Arkin of Beyond Toxics said samples should have been taken from more places, as well as from a creek that local people use for drinking water. She said they had also asked the federal agency to talk to the people complaining of illness. Arkin added that while the Department of Agriculture originally reported one helicopter

involved, local residents reported seeing two different helicopters. The Oregon Public Health Division has a longcooperative standing agreement with Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry to look into the effects of chemical exposures and human health, said division spokesman Jonathan Modie. Pokarney said the federal agency has not contacted the Department of Agriculture yet. Oregon Department of Forestry spokesman Dan Postrel said they have not been contacted, either. Herbicides are commonly used on privately owned industrial forests to control bush, allowing tree seedlings to grow more quickly.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Three years after midwifing South Sudan’s birth, the United States is desperately trying to prevent the world’s youngest nation from falling apart. Yet despite shared consternation by the Obama administration and Congress, no one is quite sure what the U.S. can do to bring peace to a country that in many ways owes its existence to the United States. The violence has killed more than 1,000 people and driven 180,000 from their homes in the last month, and spread to neighbors killing each other purely on tribal identification, threatening a place that until recently was viewed by Democrats and Republicans alike as an American success story in Africa. The crisis has sowed deep concern at the White House. President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, called Thursday for an immediate ceasefire, warning that South Sudan could otherwise witness the escalation of a crisis that its people cannot afford. The risk of all-out civil war is growing, said Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the top U.S. diplomat for Africa. “There is clear evidence that targeted killings have taken place, with Dinka killing Nuer, and Nuer killing Dinka. Countless civilians, particularly women and children, have become victims,” Thomas-Greenfield said. For the United States, South Sudan’s instability isn’t just another example of a weak African state struggling to deal with political infighting, endemic poverty and deadly battles between the military and rebel groups. Because of its history as a largely Christian nation that was able to win its freedom from Muslim-dominated Sudan, South Sudan has a powerful constituency in Washington. And the bloodshed is proving an embarrassment to the U.S., which has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the country. The crisis began with a political dispute on Dec. 15 as President Salva Kiir, an ethnic Dinka, accused his former vice president, Riek Machar, an ethnic Nuer, of trying to overthrow the government.

prescription benefit in 2006. That has meant that the private insurance plans that deliver prescription benefits to seniors and disabled beneficiaries must cover “all or substantially all” medications in the class, allowing broad access. The plans can charge more for costlier drugs, but they can’t just close their lists of approved drugs, or formularies, to protected medications. In a proposal published Friday in the Federal Register, the administration called for removing protected status from antidepressants, antipsychotics and immunosuppressant drugs. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said that status is no longer needed to guarantee access, and the change would save millions of dollars

for taxpayers and beneficiaries alike, while potentially helping with the problem of improperly prescribed antipsychotic drugs in nursing homes. But advocates for patients are opposed, saying it could potentially limit access to critically needed medications for millions of people. “We are disturbed by this,” said Andrew Sperling, legislative advocacy director for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. “This is a key protection. It’s a cornerstone of what has made the benefit work for people with mental illness.” Sperling said that patients with mental health issues often have to try a variety of drugs before they find the right one for their condition.

Air Force drug probe grows to 10 officers WASHINGTON (AP) — An Air Force investigation into alleged drug use in the ranks has expanded to include 10 officers at six bases in the U.S. and Britain. Nine lieutenants and one captain are being investigated for illegal possession of recreational drugs, Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Brett Ashworth said Friday. The

case began with the investigation of two officers at Edwards Air Force Base in California and quickly widened to several other bases because of the airmen’s contacts with others about drug possession, he said. The probe surfaced Thursday as Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel visited F.E. Warren Air Force Base

in Wyoming to give a pep talk to members of the nuclear missile force. Initially, officials revealed that two nuclear launch control officers at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana were being investigated for drug use. On Friday, Ashworth said the probe now includes officers at Edwards and Malmstrom as well as at

Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado, Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and Royal Air Force base Lakenheath in eastern England. No other details about the investigation, which is being conducted by the Air Force of Special Office Investigations, are being released.

Proposed Medicare drug change stirs worry WASHINGTON (AP) — In a move that some fear could compromise care for Medicare recipients, the Obama administration is proposing to remove special protections that guarantee seniors access to a wide selection of three types of prescription drugs. Advocates for patients are sharply criticizing the idea,but the Medicare prescription benefit’s first administrator says greater availability of generic drugs nowadays may allow for some protections to be safely eased. The three classes of drugs — widely used antidepressants, antipsychotics and drugs that suppress the immune system to prevent the rejection of a transplanted organ — have enjoyed special “protected” status since the launch of the Medicare

Pirates are last unbeaten in Far West League Marshfield boys get big night from Hunter Olson to beat visiting Siuslaw ■


COOS BAY — Hunter Olson was exhausted from being sick with the flu, prompting Marshfield coach Doug Miles to leave him out of the starting lineup against Siuslaw on Friday night. But when it was game time, Olson found the energy to give the Pirates a huge boost with a team-high 16 points, part of an outstanding team effort as Marshfield beat the Vikings 57-41 to stay alone in first place in the Far West League. “I just felt it was my obligation to go out

there and give my effort, for what it was worth,” Olson said. The Pirates are the league’s lone unbeaten team heading into Tuesday’s Civil War game at North Bend. It’s a big turnaround from the start of the season, when Marshfield struggled. “We played as a team,” Olson said. “It was nice to see. We’re finally getting it.” Olson repeatedly got free inside against the Vikings and took advantage of good entry passes from his teammates. He had three straight hoops as part of an 11-0 run to start the second half that gave Marshfield a comfortable cushion for the rest of the game. Austin Howerton also hit two 3-pointers in the quarter on the way to 10 points for the night. “I thought we did some really good

“We played hard, we just didn’t execute,” Dodson said. The Vikings fell to 0-3 heading into Tuesday’s home game against Douglas. “We just need to keep practicing and listening to the coaches,” Dodson said. Marshfield, meanwhile, hopes for more nights like Friday, ending with an on-court celebration after the game, when the players mingled with the big student section. “Our crowd is incredible right now,” Miles said, adding that it’s important for the players to thank the students. The players expect another big crowd in North Bend on Tuesday, when they will try to repeat the success of the first three league games. “It’s another game; it’s a rivalry,” Olson said. “Since we’re doing good, I feel we can hang in there with them.”

things,” said Marshfield coach Doug Miles. “We’re still sloppy and we’re still taking some bad shots, but we’re getting more and more quality shots.” Miles said he was thrilled to be 3-0 in league, but even more thrilled with how the team has come together. “What we’ve gone through to get to this point ... I just feel the best is yet to come, because we’re seeing glimpses of it,” he said. “And we’re seeing more each game.” A big part is the all-around teamwork. “Hunter had a high fever yesterday, and (tonight) he was a stud.” Jake Miles scored nine points and Justin Cooper and Rylee Trendell had six each for the Pirates. John Dodson had 22 points, including three fourth-quarter 3-pointers, to lead the Vikings and Joseph Dotson added 10.

Coquille gets big victory THE WORLD The Coquille boys basketball team took a big step toward another trip to the Class 3A playoffs Friday, beating host Glide 60-47 in the first big Sunset Conference game of the season. The Red Devils, Glide and Bandon — Coquille’s opponent Tuesday — are battling for two spots in the playoffs. Coquille overcame foul trouble to win Friday and improve to 2-0 in league play. “It was a real defensive battle for the whole game,” Coquille coach Dan Cumberland said. “There were a lot of fouls called. “We were in foul trouble virtually the whole game. You can’t get into a rhythm. You can’t get anything going. That’s how we played until the fourth quarter.” The Red Devils led by six points before pulling away in the final eight minutes. “I’m real happy with the boys’ effort,” Cumberland said. “They put pressure on the entire game. They just wore them down.”

Sutherlin hands Bulldogs first loss North Bend fails to convert chances in the closing moments ■


NORTH BEND — In close, tough losses, it’s never a surprise to have a losing player take personal responsibility for the defeat. But in North Bend’s startling

53-50 loss to Sutherlin on Friday, the hometown Bulldogs had a squad full of guilt after squandering a late lead to their Far West League foe. “I’m sure (everybody blamed themselves) in some form or fashion. If you need to blame someone, put it right here,” head coach Tom Nicholls said as he pointed right at his chest. “Everybody stepped on the floor and had responsibility. It’s not a point-a-finger thing.” Down the stretch, it didn’t

matter who it was. Nothing went North Bend’s way as it lost for the first time in league play. After North Bend crawled back to take a 51-50 lead with 48 seconds left, Sutherlin’s Noah Caillier slithered his way to the basket to give Sutherlin the lead. Caillier gave Drew Matthews and Luke Lucero fits with his crossover and behind it scored 10 points in the first half. Nicholls realized he was left-hand dominant and made the defensive adjustment but Caillier

still burned the Bulldogs for 17. On the next play, Matthews drove to the rim but was blocked so cleanly, it was called a jump ball and the possession arrow gave the ball to Sutherlin. Matthews was the main reason North Bend had a lead to begin with. He finished with a teamhigh 21 points and had two separate runs of five and seven straight points for the home Bulldogs.


Marshfield girls get first win



Top-ranked Sutherlin wears down North Bend BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

NORTH BEND — North Bend got a glimpse Friday of the team it wants to be. Sutherlin came to North Bend and dominated the hometown Bulldogs, beating the young North Bend team 62-29. The first quarter was good for North Bend. The hometown Bulldogs were able to push Sutherlin’s shooters outside and didn’t allow a field goal for nearly the whole first half of the opening quarter. “We went in and had absolutely nothing to lose and they had everything to lose so we just played our hearts out,” Alex Wilkinson said after finishing with a team-high eight points. The size and athleticism of Sutherlin eventually started to wear on North Bend. Damie

Zomerschoe’s five points and Wilkinson’s six were the only Bulldogs points mustered in the second quarter. Freshman Codi Wallace, who scored all of her five points in the third quarter, was able to explain the game as succinctly as possible in two sentences. “The first and second quarter we were working well and had a chance to beat them and then we just lost it and they finally picked up their game,” Wallace said. “It was a tough loss for all of us.“ The second half really began to drag on North Bend. Sutherlin’s Olivia Gulliford and Kayce Mock each scored 10 in the second half and the lead ballooned from manageable to insurmountable. Gulliford finished with a team-high 12 points.

COOS BAY — Marshfield’s girls basketball team got its season back on track with a 40-23 win over visiting Siuslaw at Pirate Palace on Friday night. After two close losses to open Far West League play, the win was vital, said Marshfield senior Katelyn Rossback. “On a scale of one to 10 it was an 11,” she said. “It’s good to get our confidence up and get us smiling again.” Rossback had a lot to do with that, scoring a team-best 12 points, including all eight of Marshfield’s points in the first quarter, when the Pirates led 8-5. Siuslaw briefly tied the score on a 3-pointer by Ashlee Cole to start the second, but Marshfield scored the next 10 points and Siuslaw never recovered. “We got off to a quick start,” said Marshfield coach Bruce Bryant. “It was good we didn’t have to come back.” SEE PIRATES | B2

Sports BOYS From Page B1 “When I’m on, my confidence goes up,“ Matthews said. “I feel like it’s just guys getting me open and the shot selections I choose.” The Bulldogs had the ball down one with 19 seconds to go when North Bend’s Matt Woods drew a double team and found a wide-open cutting Levi Rider on the block for an easy layup. Rider couldn’t convert. It didn’t matter. Sutherlin made one of two free throws and handed North Bend another opportunity, but the hometown Bulldogs still couldn’t take advantage. Rider tried to get the ball into a heavily guarded Woods and the pass was promptly pilfered by Sutherlin’s Wryland McKinght. After the game, Nicholls offered a broad perspective on the final couple of plays. “It’s not two plays at the end of it, it’s two plays at the beginning that would’ve made the difference,” Nicholls said. “We’re gonna stay on an even keel and not press the panic button.” The leader behind

Sutherlin was Treven Anspach and his team-high 20 points. Anspach made a key free throw down the stretch to ice the win. The value of this victory for the Sutherlin program isn’t lost on him. “I don’t think we’ve won here in 10 years. It’s the most amazing feeling ever other than a state title,” Anspach said. Woods finished with a typical big game for himself in the middle, scoring 14 points and grabbing 16 rebounds as well as a couple of steals and assists to go with a block. Despite the plump stat line, Woods was not impressed. “It’s probably not one of the best games I’ve played. I could’ve stepped up more,” Woods said, pointing at his free throws as negative even though he went 6-for-9. “Everybody’s down obviously — disappointed I should say. We just have to come together Sunday and get back to work and get ready for Marshfield.” The Bulldogs host the By Lou Sennick, The World league-leading Pirates on Tuesday in the first of two Matt Woods for North Bend and Treven Anspach of Sutherlin battled each other most of the night Friday during their Far West League game.

Marshfield wins three dual meets Pirates pin FWL foes at Brookings ■

THE WORLD Marshfield’s wrestling team won a trio of Far West League dual meets at Brookings-Harbor High School on Thursday. The Pirates topped North Bend, Siuslaw and the host Bruins during the day. North Bend also lost to BrookingsHarbor. Marshfield beat the rival Bulldogs 58-21, getting pins by Lucas Gieselman (120 pounds), Darik Dornbusch (126), Logan Entgelmeier (138), Taylor Dornbusch (145) and Chris Alonzo (220). North Bend got pins by Nathan Mersino (132 pounds), Aaron Wagner (170) and Kyle Overshoe (182) and a decision by Zach Schneider (195). The Pirates dominated Siuslaw 63-18, though seven of the 14 matches were forfeits by the Vikings. Tyler Campbell (113 pounds), Tyler Gregory (152)

and Kaleb Campbell (285) all won matches with pins for the Pirates and Taylor Dornbusch won a decision. Isaiah Burkhalter (126), Mark Bliss (195) and Kainan Lane (220) all had pins for the Vikings. Marshfield also beat Brookings-Harbor 63-18. Izaak Grubbs (106 pounds), Justin Gerhardt (132), Entgelmeier (138) and Gregory (152) all won their matches with pins, while Taylor Dornbusch took a decision. Brookings-Harbor got pins by Hunter Niedens (126), Tyler Marrington (160) and David Hull (182). North Bend also went against the Bruins, losing a tight match 36-33. Nathan Mersino (132 pounds) had a pin for North Bend, while Kyle Zomerschoe won a match by decision. The rest of North Bend’s points came courtesy of four forfeits by Brookings-Harbor. Niedens (126), Jess Fitzhugh (138), Matt Sanders (145) and Isaiah Ross (152) all won matches for BrookingsHarbor.

From Page B1 Josh Grotting — a Myrtle Point High graduate — explained that his team was in a similar spot a few years ago and sees the same kind of potential from North Bend’s squad. “They played really well, we thought,” Grotting said. “North Bend is really athletic and give them a couple years and they’re going to be tough.” The Sutherlin program is the perfect example of what North Bend head coach Eric Metcalf is modeling his team after. Literally. In advance of Friday’s game, Metcalf dragged his 12-year-old daughter Macy to see the future of the North Bend program, and he didn’t mean his Bulldogs. He wanted to show that if Macy chooses to play in high school, the team North Bend played Friday is what Metcalf’s team will look like when she’s on the squad. “Sutherlin is that team that I think all teams in Oregon and our classification shoot to be,” Metcalf said. “That’s the team we’re gonna be.” North Bend will host the Civil War this coming Tuesday against Marshfield.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Alabama hired former Southern California coach Lane Kiffin on Friday as its offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Kiffin replaces Doug Nussmeier, who left Alabama for Michigan. Kiffin spent a week in Tuscaloosa, Ala., last month exchanging ideas with coach Nick Saban and his staff and observing Alabama’s offense. The 38-year-old Kiffin was 28-15 in three-plus seasons with USC. He was fired five games into last season. He also was head coach at Tennessee and for the Oakland Raiders. Kiffin spent six seasons (2001-06) at USC under Pete Carroll as an assistant, including the final two as offensive coordinator. He also called plays during his time as a head coach. He spent one season at Tennessee (2009), and went 7-6 before leaving to replace Carroll.

Petrino returns to Louisville LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Looking back, Bobby Petrino said one of his many mistakes in recent years was leaving Louisville, which provided the first of several head coaching opportunities on the college and professional levels.

Hilltoppers promote Brohm BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Jeff Brohm’s belief in taking chances and having a creative offense helped Western Kentucky pile up yardage, points and victories last season. It also helped him become the Hilltoppers’ new head coach. WKU athletic director Todd Stewart announced Friday that it was promoting the offensive coordinator, naming Brohm as its coach. Brohm is replacing Bobby Petrino, who Thursday was named the Louisville head coach.

Rangers lose Holland to injury Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland will miss the start of the season after having surgery Friday on his left knee. The Rangers say Holland injured his knee in a fall on the stairs in his home earlier this week. General manager Jon Daniels says Holland has cartilage damage.

The Pirates kept the Vikings from getting anything going inside and Siuslaw was just 2-for-18 from beyond the 3-point arc. “I thought our defense was good,” said Siuslaw coach Carl Johnson. “But I told them we’ve got to find some way to score points. “I was pleased with everything but the scoring.” Marshfield shot a bit better — 13-for-38 — from the floor and also forced 24 Siuslaw turnovers. Jade Chavez and Tracee Scott scored seven points

Earnhardt loses crew chief to NBC DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. is admittedly scared by the daunting task of replacing crew chief Steve Letarte. He’ll leave it up to team owner Rick Hendrick and management at Hendrick Motorsports, and they’ve got the entire season to find a new crew chief. Letarte was formally introduced Friday as the third and final member of NBC Sports Group’s broadcast team for its NASCAR coverage beginning in 2015. Earnhardt and Letarte have been paired since 2011. Although the duo has just one win together, they’ve made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship the past three seasons. More important, Letarte rebuilt the confidence in NASCAR’s most popular driver and instilled a structure around Earnhardt that the driver admits raised his professionalism in the race car.

Bengals promote Jackson CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Bengals introduced Hue Jackson on Friday as the successor to Jay Gruden, who is now coach of the Washington Redskins after three years as Cincinnati’s offensive coordinator. Jackson was Oakland’s head coach in 2011 and the Bengals’ running backs coach this season. Coach Marvin Lewis said assistant offensive line coach Kyle Caskey will replace Jackson as running backs coach.

Bryant said a big key was how his team kept its energy level up. “I told the girls the hungrier team was going to win tonight, and we would have to do it for four quarters,” he said, adding that the players off the bench also did a good job keeping the energy up. Rossback had been sick the past two days, but found enough energy to make it through Friday night. She was quick to pass credit for the win on to team-

mates, saying fellow senior Tracee Scott has been providing great leadership and junior Jade Chavez got the defense going. As for her shooting, Rossback said, “I wouldn’t have gotten those shots without my teammates.” Baily Garrett had a teambest seven rebounds for Marshfield, while Rossback and Carli Clarkson added six each. Cole had eight rebounds and four steals for the Vikings. Marshfield is on the road Tuesday, facing North Bend. Siuslaw hosts Douglas.

First tennis major starts this weekend BY DENNIS PASA The Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia — The Australian Open begins Monday (Sunday in Oregon) at Melbourne Park, the first Grand Slam of the year. Here are five things to know about the tournament at Melbourne Park, which is within minutes of the city center and situated along the banks of the Yarra River: REIGNING CHAMPIONS: Welcome back Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka. Djokovic, who has won the last three titles here, went on from Melbourne Park to win seven titles in nine finals in 2013 and finished the season with a 24-match winning streak. He lost the No. 1 ranking to Rafael Nadal on Oct. 7. Azarenka, the two-time defending women’s champion, won two additional titles in 2013 at Doha and Cincinnati. Azarenka was one of only three players to beat Serena Williams in 2013. THE WEATHER: Always a factor — it can be intensely hot one day, cool and wet the next. The tournament’s Extreme Heat Policy gets invoked most years, meaning matches can be moved indoors, or suspended or prolonged by

extra breaks given to players. To combat the weather, the Australian Open continues to lead the way with covered venues. Rod Laver and Hisense arenas both have retractable roofs. A roof over Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne Park’s third featured arena, is under construction and will be fully retractable by next year. SHOW THEM THE MONEY: In October, Tennis Australia said it would increase prize money by $2.8 million to bring overall player compensation to $31 million. In keeping with player demands for a larger slice of Grand Slam revenues, all four of the sport’s major tournaments have greatly increased their prize money in the past two years. Wimbledon now offers about $36.5 million, while the U.S. Open increased its purse to $34.3 million and the French Open went up to $29.7 million. This year, the singles champions in Australia will receive $2.35 million. WHO’S HOT, WHO’S NOT: Serena Williams beat Victoria Azarenka in the Brisbane International final a week ago to continue where she left off last year. She won 11 titles in 2013 — the most by a player on the WTA tour since Martina Hingis’ 12 in 1997. She compiled a 34-

match winning streak and earned more than $12 million in prize money. She comes to Melbourne on a 22-match winning streak. Martina Navratilova has predicted Williams can equal her total of 18 Grand Slam singles titles by winning the Australian Open this month, and then eclipse Steffi Graf’s 22 major titles in the Open era. “If she can stay healthy there is no doubt she can go into the 20s,” Navratilova said. “The sky is the limit.” Defending Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic won four consecutive men’s titles to finish last season, including the World Tour Finals in London. On the not-so-hot side is Roger Federer. The 17-time major winner failed to reach a Grand Slam final last year for the first year since 2002. WHO’S HERE, WHO’S NOT: Pete Sampras, a 14-time Grand Slam winner, will be at the tournament for ceremonies to mark the first of his two Australian Open titles 20 years ago. Six-time major winner Boris Becker, making his first visit to Australia in 15 years, arrives as Novak Djokovic’s new coach. Among those missing in Melbourne will be Nicolas Almagro, who finished No. 13 in the rankings last year, and No. 27 Jurgen Melzer.

Saints, Seahawks clash in divisional playoff BY TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE — When they walked off the field in Atlanta last January after blowing their chance to play for the NFC championship in the final seconds, there were varying emotions brewing in the Seattle Seahawks’ locker room. Anger, disappointment and reflection were wide spread. Some, like quarterback Russell Wilson, were already peeking ahead what appeared to be a bright future. Others never wanted to experience those emotions again. “We never want to feel that feeling again,” Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said this week. “I think as motivated as New Orleans is from what happened to them the last time they came here, we’re just as motivated from what happened in Atlanta. We don’t ever want to go there and feel that feeling of regret, of disappointment, of anger, of frustration, of all those things that you felt after that game that you felt like you should have won.” The Seahawks chance at making amends for what happened in last season’s playoffs arrives Saturday when they host New Orleans in the NFC divisional playoff. But now the Seahawks aren’t the upstarts with little pressure and limited expectations. They are the top seed in the NFC coming off a 13-3 regular season that matched the best in franchise history and well aware anything short of a trip to the Super Bowl would be a massive disappointment.

The Associated Press

Randy Kudijaroff and Amanda German Kudijaroff hug as the crowd cheers moments after they were married at Century Link Field as part of the Blue Friday tailgate on Friday in Seattle. After having last week off, the Seahawks say they’re ready for this playoff experience. “When we first got there last year a lot of the guys we didn’t know what to expect. We’re just young wanting to go out there, have fun and do our best,” Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “Now we kind of expect the atmosphere we know what we’re going into, and we know it’s going to be amped up so we’re going to be just as amped up to repeat it.”

In many ways, the feelings the Seahawks had leaving Atlanta last season are similar to what the Saints felt leaving Seattle in December. The performance New Orleans put forth in a national spotlight was surprisingly unimpressive. Drew Brees was confused, Jimmy Graham was invisible and the Saints’ aggressive defense was exploited by Wilson. The 34-7 loss to Seattle was significant in forcing the Saints into challenges they faced, having to win in Week 17 just to make the

playoffs and having to spend the entire postseason away from the comforts of New Orleans. They passed the first two tests, beating Tampa Bay in the season finale to wrap up the No. 6 seed in the NFC then picking up the first playoff road win in franchise history in a 26-24 win at Philadelphia last week. Now the Saints get a chance at a bit of redemption. The piercing noise of CenturyLink Field and the style that Seattle plays will no longer be surprises. And there’s a bit of history on the side of the Saints. Since 2005, No. 6 seeds are 5-2 against No. 1 seeds in the divisional round. “I was just hoping we have another opportunity and here we are with that opportunity,” Brees said. The Saints are subtly different — for better and worse — since that December blowout. They are more committed to running the football over the last three games and capped with 185 yards rushing last week against the Eagles. That commitment will be severely tested by Seattle’s No. 1 ranked defense that gave up 13 yards rushing to St. Louis the last time it was on the field. They are also better on the offensive line with the decision to replace Charles Brown at left tackle with Terron Armstead. But New Orleans is littered with injuries, the latest being linebacker Parys Haralson being lost for the season with a torn pectoral last week. Running back Pierre Thomas is also an unknown with a chest injury.

Getting their kicks

The Associated Press

Abby Krause, of the History Colorado Center, puts a Champ Bailey jersey on a sculpture outside the museum in Denver on Friday. The Denver Broncos will play San Diego Chargers on Sunday in Denver.

Broncos home a year after playoff pratfall DENVER (AP) — Philip Rivers likes to say the San Diego Chargers have been in playoff mode since last month, scrapping just to squeak into the postseason party. Wesley Woodyard would like him to know the Denver Broncos have been in the pressure cooker ever since their playoff pratfall a year ago when they lost at home in double-overtime to underdog Baltimore. “Absolutely. We have been waiting for this moment for a long time,” Woodyard said. Since the first-round bye was introduced in 1978, 16 other teams have opened the playoffs at home a year after losing a divisional home game to a wild-card winner. Only one of those teams, the 1987 Chicago Bears, lost again. Nine of those reached the Super Bowl and five of them won it: the ’83 Raiders, ’88 49ers, ’90 Giants, ’97 Broncos and the ’06 Colts — led by current Denver quarterback Peyton Manning. The ‘96 Broncos lost to Jacksonville 30-27, then whipped the Jaguars 42-17 the following year on their way to winning their first of two straight Super Bowls behind Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway, the front office boss who lured Manning to Denver last year. Manning’s 2005 Colts were upset by Pittsburgh, but he led them to the championship the following season. He’s out to repeat that feat beginning Sunday, when the top-seeded Broncos (13-3)

host the Chargers (10-7) at Sports Authority Field on the anniversary of Denver’s 38-35 loss to the Ravens. “This is why you have the offseason work, this is why you meet as often as you do in April, May and June. It’s for opportunities like this,” said Manning, who set a slew of records this season as the Broncos became the highestscoring team in the Super Bowl era. Manning is 14-3 at home since joining the Broncos two years ago, but Rivers is no slouch in Denver, where he’s 6-2. And he’d be 7-1 if not for Ed Hochuli’s blown call on a lastminute Denver fumble in 2008. He won here a month ago, when the Chargers handed the Broncos their only home loss, 27-20. “I don’t know that I’m necessarily comfortable there,” Rivers said. “It’s a great place to play and it’s a tough place to play. It’s an awesome place to play. It’s as first class as it comes from the atmosphere in the stadium and the fans and the whole deal. It’s NFL football at its best.” The weather could play a part on Sunday. While it’s expected to be 44 degrees at kickoff, swirling winds could wreak havoc on Manning and Rivers, who combined to throw for 9,925 yards this season. The National Weather Service predicted winds of 15-25 mph with gusts up to 35. Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase says wind worries him more than cold.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Stephen Gostkowski sings on the sideline when he prepares to kick. Then he tries a field goal that could win a big game for the New England Patriots. “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head,” might be appropriate Saturday night against the Indianapolis Colts with a spot in the AFC championship game at stake. Steady rain is expected during the divisional-round game, but Gostkowski says it’s his job to deal with all kinds of weather. Besides, the NFL scoring leader for the second straight season has a routine that helps him focus. During the week “I’ll watch a five-minute (video) cut-up of some big kicks that I’ve made to a song that I like,” he said. “Then, when I’m on the sideline, I’ll sing that song and then, in my head, I see the ball going through the uprights.” What’s that tune? Country, rock, hip-hop? “It’s a secret,” Gostkowski said, smiling. On game day he also listens to mellow music to relax before taking the field where 300-pound linemen charge each other and cornerbacks collide with receivers. “I always just try to visualize myself doing well and not getting overexcited or too hyped up in the moment,” Gostkowski said. “Most of those guys are banging heads. I’m trying to like listen to Enya before the game to calm myself down. “The worst thing you can do in situations where, for me personally,where the situation gets bigger, is get too excited.

Panthers are the underdogs again CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — It doesn’t surprise safety Mike Mitchell that the Carolina Panthers are only the third home underdog in the NFL divisional playoffs in the past 20 years. “We haven’t gotten much respect all year,” he said. “It looks like we still have people to prove wrong.” The Panthers (12-4) are playing the no-respect card after opening the week as a 1-point underdog against San Francisco (13-4), despite defeating the 49ers 10-9 at Candlestick Park on Nov. 10. Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith said the 49ers are likely favored because of their playoff experience. This is the third straight season San Francisco has been to the playoffs under coach Jim Harbaugh, and most of the players have returned from last year’s NFC championship team. The Panthers will make their first playoff appearance since 2008 under coach Ron Rivera. That doesn’t seem to bother Rivera. “No, because two years ago (the 49ers) didn’t have any playoff experience and

Harbaugh, who was teammates with Rivera with the Chicago Bears, also downplayed the experience factor. “I’ve always really felt that where you’re going is a heck of a lot more important than where you’ve come from,” Harbaugh said. Rivera said the Panthers got some playoff-type experience by winning a

number of big games during the season — they beat New England and New Orleans along with San Francisco — to battle back from a 1-3 start to win the NFC South and secure a first-round bye. The Panthers sacked Colin Kaepernick six times and limited him to 91 yards passing and 16 yards rushing in the first meeting in a win that defensive end Greg Hardy said “proved we were a contender.” But Rivera said Kaepernick’s play has vastly improved since. “He is playing with a lot of confidence right now,” Rivera said. “Maybe we’ll get lucky and catch him on a bad day.” Kaepernick said he’s eager to bounce back from perhaps the most disappointing game of his career against Carolina. Being the home underdogs might not be a bad thing for the Panthers. According to the Glantz-Culver Line, one of the two home divisional playoff underdogs since the 1994 season was the ’96 Panthers, who upended the Dallas Cowboys in the very same stadium they’ll face the 49ers in on Sunday.

New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski practices prior to the game against the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 29. fourth round out of Memphis in 2006, Gostkowski has made 85.6 percent of his regularseason field goal attempts, fifth best in NFL history. This season, his 92.7 percentage (38 of 41) was second best in Patriots history. The best? The 93.9 percent (31 of 33) in 2004 of Adam Vinatieri, the kicker Gostkowski replaced. The 18-year veteran returns to Gillette Stadium with the Colts after a regular-season in which he made 87.5 percent (35 of 40) of his attempts. And the kicker whose field goal on the last play gave the Patriots a 20-17 win over the St. Louis Rams in the 2002 Super Bowl expects the same greeting he heard in past visits with the Colts. “They’re fanatical fans, like we have,” Vinatieri said. “I’m sure they’ll be loud and probably in a negative way to me and the rest of the team, but that’s what it’s supposed to be.” In the only other playoff duel between the two kickers, the Colts trailed 21-3 in the final minute of the first half but won the AFC championship game 38-34 on their way to a 2007 Super Bowl vic-

tory. On consecutive fourthquarter series, Gostkowski, then then Vinatieri Gostkowski again made field goals that left the Patriots ahead 34-31. Then Joseph Addai ran 3 yards for the winning touchdown with 1:00 left. “There’s a lot of fun things about this sport,” said Vinatieri, who also won three Super Bowls with New England, “but trying to hoist that trophy at the end is what we all play for.” Both teams have been in plenty of close games this season. The Patriots (12-4) are 8-4 when the margin was seven points or fewer. The Colts (12-5) were 6-1 in games decided by six or fewer. The latest came last Saturday in a 45-44 wild-card win over the Kansas City Chiefs, who led by 28 early in the third quarter. And two of last weekend’s four playoff games were won with field goals on the last play. So the spotlight could be on Gostkowski or Vinatieri late in a game that will keep alive one team’s Super Bowl hopes.

Beavers top Stanford, 81-72 BY KYLE ODEGARD The Associated Press CORVALLIS — Eric Moreland had 17 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks as Oregon State beat Stanford 81-72 on Thursday night. Roberto Nelson added 21 points for the Beavers (9-6, 1-2 Pac-12), and freshman Hallice Cooke, making his first career start, had a career-high 16 points. Chasson Randle scored 30 points and Dwight Powell added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Stanford (9-5, 0-2). Moreland was back for his third game after a 12-game suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules. Already one of the best rebounders and shot blockers in school history, he was more active in driving to the hoop on Thursday. “The first two were tough ones and I couldn’t help the team win as much as I wanted to. I just wanted to bounce back this game,” Moreland said. “I wanted to be aggressive.” “It’s really nice to see his feel for the game coming back,” said Oregon State coach Craig Robinson.

The Beavers took a quick 12-6 lead behind seven points from Nelson, but Stanford clawed back to go ahead 13-12. Midway through the first half, Angus Brandt’s massive rebound-dunk started the Beavers on a 10-0 run, and they went up 27-18. Brandt finished with 12 points. The Beavers were ahead by as many as 10 before going into the break ahead 37-32. In the second half, the Beavers quickly pushed the lead again to 10 points, but Stanford came within two points on three occasions. The last was on a layup by Randle, who was fouled on the play, at the 2:59 mark. He made the free throw and made the score 68-66. Cooke responded with a 3-pointer on the next possession for Oregon State. “We closed the gap and it was just about getting a stop and we couldn’t get that tonight,” Randle said. “They scored 80-some points. That can’t be us.” Robinson said the Beavers pulled out a close game they might have given away in the past — such as a four-overtime epic loss to Stanford two years ago at Corvallis.

“There is a level of toughness about this team that we haven’t had here in my previous five years,” he said. Cooke, coming off a career-high 14 points against Utah, replaced Challe Barton in the lineup for Oregon State. “I just tried to do the same thing I did coming off the bench. Let the game come to me,” Cooke said. Robinson also opted to bring regular starter Devon Collier, averaging 16.4 points and 7.8 rebounds, off the bench against the Cardinal. He had four points and four rebounds. Both teams entered the contest shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor. Stanford shot 41 percent on Thursday, compared to 47 percent for the Beavers. “They defended well. We thought we had a couple of good looks that didn’t go, but you give them credit,” Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said. Both teams came into the contest looking for their first Pac-12 win. Oregon State dropped its first two games of conference play last week at Colorado and Utah. Stanford fell to California on Thursday in its conference opener.

Portland Pilots upset No. 22 Gonzaga, 82-73 PORTLAND (AP) — Thomas van der Mars lingered courtside long after his Pilots had upset Gonzaga, greeting fans, hugging friends and just generally smiling. Wins like this were the reason the 6-foot-11 junior center had come from the Netherlands to Portland. The Pilots hosted the No. 22 Bulldogs on Thursday night and led from the start en route to an 82-73 victory. The win snapped a 20game losing streak to the defending West Coast Conference champion Zags. The perennial NCAA tournament darlings had won 22 straight conference games dating back three seasons. Van der Mars was caught up in the postgame celebration when the purple-clad Pilots fans stormed the court. He had never seen anything like it. “Only on ESPN,” he joked. “And I’ve seen some footage of our win against St. Mary’s the year before I got here. But it was nothing like this.” Before bursting into happy laughter, he said: “Obviously, it’s a great feeling.” Van der Mars has had a breakout year this season for the Pilots (10-7, 2-3), averaging career highs with 12.8 points and 6.8 rebounds. When he had 19 points and 18 rebounds against Portland State on Dec. 7, he became the first Pilot since 2011 to

earn West Coast Conference player of the week honors. After going 20-10 overall in 2011, the Pilots have struggled and last season they finished 11-21. With the victory over Gonzaga, they’re a win away from last season’s total. The last time the Pilots beat the Bulldogs in Portland was in 1996 and the Pilots’ last victory in the series came in 2003 in Spokane. Portland had not defeated an APranked opponent since 2009 when the Pilots beat thenNo. 22 Minnesota. Portland led by as many as 17 points in the second half. The win was more about Portland’s eagerness than Gonzaga’s lack of it. “It feels pretty good. When I first came into the league, (San Diego coach) Bill Grier used to joke, ‘You’ll become a Zags hater.’ And I don’t hate the Zags at all. They’re so great for the league, they’re so great for us, and Coach (Mark) Few is a great coach and a fierce competitor,” Pilots coach Eric Reveno said. “I’ve always said, I don’t want them to get any worse, I want us to get better.” Sophomore guard Bryce Pressley had 16 points and a career-high nine assists to lead the Pilots. Freshman guard Alec Wintering added 14 points and four assists even though his legs cramped up in the second half and he had to head to the locker

Van der Mars finished with 11 points and five rebounds. The Zags cut the deficit to 39-35 early in the second half, but van der Mars and Wintering hit consecutive jumpers — and van der Mars added another for good measure — and Gonzaga couldn’t get closer than nine points the rest of the way. “They played with way more energy and way more passion,” Few said afterward. “Portland did a good job of bringing it tonight.” Van der Mars, who is from Gouda, Netherlands, played for the Dutch U-20 national team and trained at the Canarias Basketball Academy in Spain before

coming to Portland. He said it was by far the biggest win of his career. “We build the lead from the ground up, and we made great winning basketball plays consistently,” van der Mars said. “It wasn’t up and down basketball. It was a very consistent effort.” Teammate Ryan Nicholas agreed that it was a defining victory. “That’s what you work for, those kinds of moments,” he said. “We seniors, we’ve been grinding it out for four years every summer, and this last summer, all of us, together, worked very hard. Every morning, get up, work out, even when this game wasn’t in view, and it was all for this moment.”

A dirty dozen — No. 17 Oregon loses to California again, 96-83 EUGENE (AP) — Jordan Mathews’ shooting touch was a big surprise to Oregon, which was caught off guard again when facing California. The freshman guard scored a season-high 32 points and California beat No. 17 Oregon 96-83 on Thursday night, defeating the Ducks for the 12th straight time. “We have to do some soul searching,” said Oregon coach Dana Altman, who kept coming back to his team’s failure to make stops on defense. “We have a lot of work to do. Defensively we’re not very good.” Justin Cobbs had 20 points and 11 assists for the Golden Bears (11-4, 2-0 Pac-12), who shot 52.6 percent and had five players in double figures. Richard Solomon added 16 points and nine rebounds. Oregon players acknowledged Matthews wasn’t a big part of the scouting report. “His first couple of shots were wide open, and he got it going,” Altman said. “For a guy averaging seven points to score 32, he had a great night.” Joseph Young scored 29 points for the Ducks (13-2, 1-2), who went 5 of 19 from 3-point range and dropped their second consecutive game after opening 13-0. Oregon was held to 40.6 percent shooting overall. Young went 16 for 17 at the free throw line, but for all the good things he did on offense, Altman said there

were just as many mistakes on defense. “That was a total team breakdown defensively,” Altman said. “It just wasn’t one guy.” Matthews scored 20 points in the first half and kept up his strong shooting in the second, knocking down his third 3-pointer a minute in to give Cal a seven-point lead. The Ducks started chipping away, though, going on a 10-0 run to take a 52-49 lead with 16:12 to go, capped by a 3pointer from Mike Moser and a jumper from Young. “Thirty-two points on the road for a freshman, that’s pretty good stuff,” California coach Mike Montgomery said. “He kept us going in the first half.” Cal tied the game on a three-point play from Solomon, but Moser took the lead back with a 15-foot jumper. Cobbs hit a 3-pointer followed by a two-handed dunk from Solomon with 12:45 left, putting California up 59-56. Oregon took a one-point lead with 11:56 to go, but Cal went on an 8-0 spurt and led 67-60. Cal took its first 10-point lead on a dunk from Solomon with 2:52 remaining, and the Golden Bears held on down the stretch. Cal kept Oregon at bay in the first half. The Golden Bears led 14-11 just 5 minutes into the game, thanks to five early turnovers by Oregon that led to

eight points. The Ducks took the lead with 11:25 to go after a fast-break layup from Damyean Dotson and a putback by Moser, who finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds. The momentum was short-lived, though, with Cal going on a 9-2 run. Cobbs hit a pull-up jumper, then Tyrone Wallace followed with a quick 3-pointer with 10:30 left in the half. Richard Amardi briefly stopped the run with a basket, but two free throws by Solomon and a layup from Wallace pushed Cal’s lead to 32-26 with 8 minutes left. Oregon tied the score twice more, but its nine first-half turnovers helped the Golden Bears take a 46-42 lead into the break. Johnathan Loyd scored 14 points for Oregon. Wallace finished with 14 points and four steals for Cal, which last lost to the Ducks on Feb. 9, 2008. “It gives us some confidence to know we are capable of beating a good team, first and foremost,” he said. “I thought we did a good job, by and large.” Cal has won six straight games in Eugene. Montgomery tied Gary Williams for 26th on the Division I wins list with 668. He also has won his last 15 games against the Ducks, dating to when Montgomery coached at Stanford.

NEW YORK — Joe Johnson scored 32 points, Shaun Livingston helped Brooklyn dominate the second overtime after LeBron James fouled out, and the Nets beat the Miami Heat 104-95 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory. Livingston had two baskets and two blocked shots in the second OT, finishing with 19 points, 11 rebounds and five assists over 51 minutes in a sensational effort while starting for injured Deron Williams. Paul Pierce scored 23 points but missed jumpers that could have won it at the end of regulation and the first overtime. Still, the Nets remained unbeaten in 2014, adding a victory over the two-time defending NBA champions to their recent wins over Oklahoma City and Golden State. James had 36 points, seven rebounds and five assists for the Heat, but fouled out on an offensive foul with 36 seconds left in the first overtime and the Heat trailing by two. Miami pushed it to a second overtime without him, but it was all Nets from t h e r e against a Heat team that was already missing Dwyane Wade and two other starters. Warriors 99, Celtics 97: Stephen Curry hit a go-ahead jumper with 2.1 seconds left, lifting Golden State over the skidding Boston Celtics in its first game back home after a 6-1 road trip. Curry came off a pickand-roll with David Lee before hitting the high-arching shot over center Kris Humphries to electrify the sellout crowd of 19,596. Gerald Wallace missed a 3pointer at the buzzer, sending Boston to its seventh straight loss. Andre Iguodala had 22 points, seven assists and five rebounds, and Curry finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Jeff Green made the tying jumper with 11.6 seconds to play for Boston, getting a friendly bounce off the rim. Green finished with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Clippers 123, Lakers 87: Blake Griffin had 33 points and 12 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers shot 71 percent in the first quarter on the way to their largest victory ever over the downtrodden Lakers. The Clippers improved to 17-3 at home, second-best in the NBA. Kendall Marshall scored 16 points for the Lakers, who have lost four straight and 10 of 11. Hawks 83, Rockets 80: Kyle Korver scored 20 points, including four free throws in the final 16 seconds, and

Elks Hoop Shoot is Sunday at Marshfield THE WORLD

BOSTON (AP) — After one of the best programs of a career that already includes three national titles, Jeremy Abbott nearly did a pratfall. He would have been entitled following a spotless performance highlighted by three picture-perfect jumps, smooth spins and almost celebratory footwork in a short program victory Friday night at the U.S. Championships. Coming out of his final move, his excitement overtook him and Abbott lost his balance. And when he saw his U.S. record points total, 99.86, a look of amazement dominated the 28-year-old veteran’s face. “I went through all my history here,” Abbott said. “I tried to live all of it but stay in the moment and just enjoy what I was doing, each crossover, each step. I really did that. This is a night I’m never going to forget.” Abbott has built a reputation as a strong domestic skater, winning nationals in 2009, 2010 and 2012. Yes, he was the top dog from the U.S. heading into the Vancouver Games, where Evan Lysacek won gold while Abbott finished ninth. That was one of many disappointments on the international stage for Abbott, including an eighth and two 11th-place showings at worlds. He failed to make the U.S. team for worlds last year. Abbott held the previous U.S. mark for a short program, 90.23 at the 2012 nationals. He shattered that, building a lead of 7.82 points over Richard Dornbush. Jason Brown was third heading into Sunday’s free skate.

Calculate return on investment Q: How do I calculate return on investment in my business? A: Return on investment, or ROI, is a financial concept that measures the profitability of an investment. There are several methods to deterDOWN TO mine ROI but the most common is to divide net profit by total assets. For instance, ARLENE if your net SOTO profit is $50,000 and your total assets are $200,000 your ROI would be 25 percent. A common definition of ROI is “a profitability measure that evaluates the performance of a business by dividing net profit by net worth.” In a small business, uses of ROI could be to measure the performance of pricing policies or an investment in capital equipment or an inventory investment. When purchasing assets in a business such as inventory or equipment, you expect to get a financial benefit from the purchase. Return on investment is a tool to help decide between purchase alternatives that will either generate revenue or result in cost savings that benefit the net income of the business. Investors look at return on investment when choosing whether to fund a business venture. Return on investment may also be measured unconventionally such as in terms of social responsibility, environmental benefits or societal benefits. This is more difficult to measure. In determining the social return on investment, the payback would need to be quantified to calculate the cost versus the benefit. A network of practitioners was formed in 2006 to facilitate the evolution of calculating social return on investment. While return on investment is a useful tool to look at profitability, calculations are complicated by other factors such as time, maintenance costs, financing costs, other investment considerations and the overall goals of the company. For instance, with the purchase of capital equipment it is expected that equipment will provide a benefit to the company for several years so the net income will need to be estimated for future time periods to determine the overall ROI. Maintenance costs over the life of the equipment will reduce the overall ROI. An accountant can assist with the formulas to determine more complex ROI calculations. Arlene M.

‘Out with the old, in with the new’ Shoppers save spending for post-holiday sales BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

As the holidays wind down, retailers are pushing inventory leftover from the biggest shopping season of the year. ShopperTrak, a retail analytics firm, expects retail sales to jump 2.8 percent this quarter. Engles Furniture store manager Steve Nye said the week of Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 is the store’s busiest week of the year. “It’s generally the biggest retail week in our industry,” he said. “We spend a little more in advertising and we push a little bit harder.” Shoppers flooded Coos Bay’s Fred Meyer store on Black Friday to take advantage of storewide sales — especially bin after bin of socks. Now, they’re returning to snag storage items

following gift exchanges and decoration dumps. Fred Meyer store director Laura Tuttle said one of the biggest trends in the new year is TV sales as people prepare for the Super Bowl on Feb. 2. Both Tuttle and Nye described this time of year as a period of “out with the old, in with the new.” “People’s habits change,” Tuttle said. “We’re cycling through old inventory and looking forward to spring inventory. We’ll have fresh stuff. Then you’ll blink and we’ll be into garden season ... right after Valentine’s Day.” Traffic increases before Christmas at Fred Meyer, not after, she said. “It’s individualized,” she said of post-holiday shopping. “After Christmas some are cleaning out closets, others are putting away

Christmas stuff and getting ready for the next thing.” January marks the end of the fiscal year for most retailers. Most ended 2013 on a good note, as national retail sales increased 2.7 percent in November and December, even though foot traffic decreased 14.6 percent, according to ShopperTrak. Shoppers held out for bigger bargains closer to Christmas, leading to more discounts during the countdown before Dec. 25. Bay Appliance & TV owner Ken Griffith said a lot of his store’s merchandise — appliances, mattresses, home entertainment — is “really advantageous for consumers right now.” In fact, he just sold a $13,000 TV. Products are changing with the new year and the store is starting closeouts on 2013 models in all depart-

Deal reached on tobacco statements RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The nation’s tobacco companies and the Justice Department have reached an agreement on publishing corrective statements that say the companies lied about the dangers of smoking and requires them to disclose smoking’s health effects. A federal judge in 2012

Fill-up prices expected to stay flat Gasoline prices are expected to hold steady this year. The national average for regular unleaded fell half a cent this week to $3.31 a gallon while the Oregon average gained a penny to $3.35. Last year, drivers paid on average $3.49 a gallon, making 2013 the least expensive year to fill up since 2010. Oregonians paid an average of $3.63 per gallon last year. AAA expects gas prices will average slightly lower this year. Pump prices across the nation are higher than two weeks ago. Recent refinery issues, particularly in the Midwest, had put upward pressure on prices, but declines are starting in some areas as refineries resolve issues and produce more gasoline. Extremely cold temperatures in the eastern half of the country have been seen as potentially decreasing demand for gasoline but increasing demand for heating oil, with a net impact on prices still difficult to determine.

ordered the industry to pay for corrective statements in various advertisements. But the parties were to meet to discuss how to implement the statements, including whether they would be put in inserts with cigarette packs and on websites, TV and newspaper ads. The agreement

announced Friday outlines those details, including fullpage ads in the Sunday editions of 35 newspapers plus prime-time TV spots on CBS, ABC and NBC for a year. It also details what statements will be published on tobacco company websites and affixed to cigarette packs.

ments while 2014 models are rolling in. But Griffith wouldn’t exactly call it “getting rid of inventory.” “We try to buy right,” he said. “There’s really no such thing as a sale; it’s all perceived value. Occasionally there are good deals ... but we have a good reputation, good prices and we’re competitive with the Internet.” Nye did say shoppers tend to take a closer look at their living rooms and mattresses during the aftermath of family gatherings. “The two to three weeks leading up to Christmas is quieter,” he said. “That’s when people make smaller ticket purchases for their family. After Christmas, they turn a corner where they’re thinking about their home. With family coming home, it registers that it’s time to make their house more enjoyable.”

The week ending Dec. 28 accounted for 15.5 percent of sales during the holiday season, according to ShopperTrak. On the flipside lies big box retailers like Walmart and Target, who specialize in huge sales on small-ticket items in the weeks leading up to Christmas. But they also see a shopping surge after the holiday with people returning gifts and putting gift cards to use. “We will continue to see the trend of steady sales increases as consumer confidence rises and the economy progresses,” ShopperTrak founder Bill Martin said in a news release.

US economy adds 74K jobs; rate falls to 6.7 pct. WASHINGTON (AP) — The weakest month of hiring in three years ended 2013 on a sluggish note and raised questions about whether the U.S. job market can sustain its recent strong gains. Employers added a scant 74,000 jobs in December after

averaging 214,000 in the previous four months. Economists cautioned that cold weather likely played a role in the sharp slowdown. Many analysts said they would need to see more data before they could tell whether the job market had lost momentum.

Target: Data breach caught up to 70 million customers NEW YORK (AP) — Target’s pre-Christmas security breach was significantly more extensive and affected millions more shoppers than the company reported last month. The nation’s second largest discounter said Friday that hackers stole personal information — including

names, phone numbers as well as email and mailing addresses — from as many as 70 million customers as part of a data breach it discovered in December. Target Corp. disclosed last month that about 40 million credit and debit cards may have been affected by a data breach that happened

between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 — just as the holiday shopping season was getting into gear. According to the company’s investigation, criminals also took non-credit card related data for some 70 million shoppers who could have made purchases at Target stores outside the late November to mid-December

timeframe. Some overlap exists between the two data sets, the company said Friday. “I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was taken and we are truly sorry they are having to endure this,” said Gregg Steinhafel, Target chairman, president and CEO, in a statement.

Workshop will teach how to sell to government NORTH BEND — The Small Business Development Center will offer a workshop on how to sell to the government. Federal, state and local government agencies spend millions of dollars every year purchasing goods and services from the private sector. Small business owners often are afraid to tap into this lucrative market because it seems so complex. The SBDC workshop will introduce participants to the basic tools to grow their business through selling to the government. The workshop will be 6-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, at The Business Center, 2455 Maple Leaf, in North Bend. Cost is $20 per person. Price has been reduced from $45 through a generous sponsorship from the Oregon Government Contract Assistance Program. Preregistration is required online at or by calling, 541-756-6866.

Payment will be accepted at the Small Business Development Center or just prior to the class. Objectives if the workshop include: ■ Learn how to assess potential government markets for your business. ■ Find out how the government procures goods and services. ■ Know what certifications and registrations are necessary to sell to the Federal, State, or local governments. ■ Identify how a business finds out about government procurement opportunities related to them. ■ Recognize what resources are available to help business throughout the process, from market assessment to pursuing opportunities, to contract award, performance, and getting paid. Workshop instruction will be by J. Rick Evans, executive director of the Organization for

Economic Initiatives Inc., an Oregon private nonprofit corporation that administers GCAP and other defense-related grants and contracts. In 1986, he was hired as the first director of Oregon’s Procurement Technical Assistance Program and has helped grow GCAP into a multi-office, statewide program. Evans is a certified contracting assistance specialist, a recipient of the APTAC’s Fellow Award and Member Achievement Award, and a national trainer and speaker on procurement related issues. He has taught courses on RFP analysis and proposal preparation, PTAC development, and marketing to the government. Prior to his experience with GCAP and OEI, Evans worked for a major aerospace firm in marketing as a proposal development specialist, selling goods and services to both the U.S. and foreign governments.

Ask a Designer: 2014 decor trends BY MELISSA RAYWORTH The Associated Press

With a new year come new trends in home design and decorating. Among them: paler walls contrasted with colorful furniture, and plenty of personal expression, design experts say.

Coolest colors Whisper-soft, ultra-pale shades of pink —described by designers as “blush tones” — are back. But the ‘80s haven’t returned, says designer Brian Patrick Flynn says, at least not entirely. “What’s different about blush this time around is what it’s paired with. In 1985, you’d find it paired with mauve and black with tons of shiny brass accents. Flash forward to today and blush is likely to be paired with preppy, masculine tones,” says Flynn, founder of Flynnside Out Productions. His favorite blush paint is Barely Blush from Glidden, which he contrasts with navy blue: “The deep, rich personality of the navy actually washes out the blush, almost causing it to look white, and the overall effect is fresh and gorgeous.” Speaking of white walls, Los Angeles-based designer Betsy Burnham sees those coming back in a big way. “I used to think white walls looked unfinished,” she says. “But I’ve completely come around on this one, because white is the ultimate palette cleanser. It gives every space — even the most traditional — a modern edge, and sets the stage wonder-

fully for layers of color in upholstery, accessories, area rugs and art.” But while wall colors are getting softer and paler, the opposite seems to be happening with furniture. “Strong colors on upholstery are becoming more of the norm,” says Kyle Schuneman, founder of Live Well Designs, who spent a chunk of 2013 designing his first line of furniture, in collaboration with retailer Apt2B. He opted to create sofas in bright blues and shades of orange because “a bright sofa is no longer just for a creative office waiting room,” he says. “People are bringing them into their homes.” One bold color to approach carefully this year: red-violet. “Red-violet is the Pantone color of the year for 2014,” Flynn says. “As a designer whose specialty is using color, let me tell you something: Red-violet is about as complex as it gets.” “My trick for using it right is pairing it with black, white and brass,” he says. “It’s not all that overwhelming, since it’s balanced by the neutrality of the black and white, and made a bit more chic and regal with the brass.”

Top textures “For accessories, the trend seems to be getting away from color and going more into rich textures like horn, aged metallics and linens,” Schuneman says. “The absence of color is becoming chic for smaller items.”

One texture Flynn says will have a big moment in 2014: felt. “Have you looked at Pinterest lately? It’s like every fifth photo you see involves felt! Ever since the handmade movement kicked in back in 2010, felt has been used in unexpected ways and in a modern fashion,” Flynn says. “What makes it such a favorite for designers is how easy it is to work with. It’s amazing for door upholstery due to its stiffness. It makes for awesome craft material, since it’s easy to cut and stitch, and it’s awesome for kids.” An easy project for even the DIY-challenged: “I modernized the classic kindergarten felt wall in a boy’s room by covering a wall with batting, then literally upholstering it with white and blue felt, then cutting tons of felt into random objects and characters to give the kids something interactive and stylish.”

Fresh inspirations “The idea of personalization is becoming stronger and stronger,” Schuneman says. “People are wanting their homes to reflect a more unique perspective.” So rather than assuming that everyone will be buying the same popular items, “stores are doing limited runs on items more often, like art in series or a special brand collaboration for just a season,” he says. Burnham agrees. Homeowners are increasingly looking to “large-scale wall hangings” and other

pieces of art to express themselves, she says, rather than doing it with bold wall color. “Boy, am I sick of accent walls. I really believe that trend is out! I vote for art every time,” Burnham says. “If you’re looking for something to cover big, blank areas, shop on Etsy for macrame pieces. They add such wonderful texture to your walls, and artists like Sally England have brought them back into vogue.” She also recommends hunting for vintage posters that speak to you. Find them through online dealers and auction houses, and then frame them in a group. “While the vintage ones are a bit of an investment,” Burnham says, “they can be a lot more reasonably priced than large-scale paintings and photographs.” Another way Americans are increasingly customizing their space, according to The Associated Press Photos Flynn: Western-inspired dicor.

Real Estate-Finance Plants wait out the darkest days

Finding the right renters insurance coverage (Family Features) There are many reasons people choose to rent over home ownership. Whether saving up for a dream home, you’re having difficulty affording one or you simply enjoy commitment-free, hasslefree living, renting certainly has its perks. For those who choose to rent, having adequate protection is a must and with advances in the industry, finding the right coverage is easier than ever.

Protecting your assets For many looking to rent a home or apartment, the thought of renters insurance may seem less important with so many other things to think about. Though not all landlords require it, many do, and for good reason. “Though you never hope you have to use it, insurance is so valuable to the protection of your family, your belongings, and, overall, your peace of mind,” said Kathy McDonald, senior vice president at Assurant Specialty Property. “Many returning to the rental market will be pleased with how the insurance industry has evolved, which makes acquiring the best coverage easier than ever.”

Advancements in the industry The conveniences brought on by computers, tablets and smartphones have greatly improved the services insurance providers now offer. With easy-to-follow websites, apps and customer service chats, one can check the status of a claim 24 hours a day.

Things I want to know You start dying, it’s said, when you stop learning. I’m not worried. There are all sorts of things I want to know about. I want to know, for example, why a 110 amp circuit has a neutral wire, but a 220 doesn’t. The very word circuit suggests a sort of circular arrangement with electricity going out on one wire and coming back on the other. (I remember learning about that in second grade.) But if a 220 amp circuit lacks that return route, where does the electricity go? Mind you, I don’t want to do anything with this knowledge — like run 220 circuits. I just want to know. I want to know about cars. Again, not to work on them, just to know. I never learned when I was younger because I was too caught up in playing with wood to be interested in anything made of steel or iron. Consequently, although I’m fairly certain I could whittle all the parts of a car, I doubt very much it would work. I want to know what Rena puts in her red sauce. It ticks me off no end that she won’t tell me — even though I’m willing to reveal the secret to my macaroni and cheese. I want to know about all sorts of old-timey things: candle- and soap-making, weaving, canning, tanning leather, baking bread … well, you get the idea. I doubt whether I’d ever do any of those things either, but I was reading a while back that pursuit of such old-fashioned skills was all the rage. I think it would be nice to be part of a rage again. It’s been a long time. I want to know how to get rid of the miserable bunnies that eat my vegetables and flowers and bedevil the dog. This would be knowledge I’d actually put to use. I’m thinking feral cats would be worth looking into. Or falcons. I guess want to know about falconry, too. I want to know how to lay bricks. I’ve tried it several

ever was happening over my head. But now, since I moved to the dimly lit environs of the Rancho del Fifties, I can see those little lights poking through the firmament, and I just feel stupid not knowing which is which. There’s so much I still want to know that I figure if I keep learning about stuff, I’ll live forever. Maybe long enough to get back all that money I’ve been putting into Social Security since I was a grade-schooler. Send your questions to: HouseWorks, P.O. Box 81609, Lincoln, NE 68501, or email:

I want to know how to sew. I mean, I can reattach a button and even close up a little rip, but making clothing or upholstering furniture is a mystery to me. (I know a couple of people who already can do this sort of stuff, so if I bug them about it, I may be able to con them into teaching me.) I want to know about astronomy. At the time (grade school) when I should have been interested and had teachers around to ask, I was more into rocks and fossils and … well … building stuff. Also, until 10 years ago, I’d always lived where street lights pretty much obscured what-

times and failed miserably over and over again. No matter how careful I am about using a level and running string lines, by the time HOUSE I’m done, every brick has developed a life of its own — a life unrelated to the b r i c k s abutting it. B r i c k STEVE laying is BATIE something I actually might make use of. Or not. Anyway, I’d like to know how it’s done.



claim - keeping a well-documented list of your possessions is important. A recent survey conducted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) stated 59 percent of consumers do not have a proper listing of their possessions in the event of a fire, robbery or other loss incident. “All renters and homeowners should develop a home inventory,” said McDonald. “Whether it is electronics, furnishings, collectibles, jewelry or clothing, families need to know what they own and how much it’s worth.” Use tracking tools Put down the pen and paper and get out your smartphone. Many new apps are available to properly keep track of every item in your home. Some even allow you to track every belonging room-toroom with bar codes, pictures, photos or scans of receipts and descriptions. This helpful tool also can create a back-up file - just in case. Update your list According to the survey, 59 percent of those who do have a list of their belongings admit they haven’t updated the list within the past year. That can fail to account for many gifts and purchases throughout the year. Make a mental note to add to your list after each birthday, the holidays or other similar occasions. Note valuable items Make sure you get sufficient coverage for expensive belongings such as artwork or collectibles, which may be subject to policy limits. As many policies only cover $1,000 for jewelry, you may need additional coverage, considering many jewelry items exceed that amount. Consider everything has value Many items have more value than you think. To better understand this, consider how much it would cost to replace every item in one load of laundry. Sometimes, it’s the little items that add up. Jot down everything clothing, shoes, kitchen gadgets and power tools. In-depth information on renters insurance is available from providers.

revealed that many longtime renters didn’t know they could transfer policies from one rental unit to another. Instead of beginning a new policy each time they move, the company advises these renters to simply update their address and they can keep the same policy. 5 things to look for in a rental property Along with choosing the best renters insurance coverage to fit your needs, there are other things to consider. Before you sign your name on the line, make sure you take into account these five important items to look for when searching for that perfect apartment or rental home. Affordability Add up monthly rent, utilities and all other costs to ensure you can afford it with your current budget. Safety It’s important to find out about crime occurring in the neighborhood in which you are interested. Contact the local police department for information and police reports on robberies and other crimes in the area. An evaluation of the property’s safety is also essential, such as the lock features on doors and windows and working smoke detectors. Environment Make sure your fellow residents match your own lifestyle. For example, an older community is typically quieter, while an apartment complex with college students may involve some loud, late nights. Choose an area that fits your personality and your needs. Amenities Check out the features of the property and determine what is important for your family and lifestyle. Does the facility have a gym, an area for walking your dog or that porch you’ve always wanted? Keep these ideas in mind as you will likely be living here at least one year. Appliances One major deciding factor of rentals should be the appliances that are included with the unit. Ensure the stove, oven and refrigerator are all in working order. Other essential devices, such as air conditioning, heating, hot water heaters and, if applicable, washer and dryer units, should be tested beforehand.

Miraculou s solutions for two of life’s little problems


D e a r M a r y : A red rag somehow managed its way into a load of what used to be white clothes. How can I get the pink tint out of the clothes and return them to bright white? — Anne P., email Dear Anne: Three words: Rit. Color. Remover. Find it where R i t D ye EVERYDAY CHEAPSKATE iI s ts o’l ds. miraculous. Dear Mary: I j u s t bought m y granddaughter an old Mary (1927) Hunt edition of my favorite children’s book, “Heidi.” It stinks! Is there any way to get rid of that smell? Thanks. —Patricia, email Dear Patricia: The minute I read your message I connected with you on two counts: Heidi was my favorite book as a child, and I can’t stand that smell of old, musty, mildewy books. Somewhere along the line, this book got left out in the rain or was stored under damp conditions. What you smell is mold. Mold is the problem and Nok-Out is the solution — a non-toxic product that contains no bleach or anything else that could be considered harmful to you, your granddaughter or to this precious book. The challenge is that Nok-Out must come in contact with each and every page. Are you up to it? Here’s the process to fix your book: Get a plastic bag that is larger than the opened book. A zipper-type bag would be ideal if you can f i n d o n e t h a t i s l a rge enough. Spray the inside of the bag with Nok-Out, completely saturating the bag’s interior. Quickly place the open book inside and tightly seal. Allow to rest for up to three minutes. Remove the book and dry the surface of the opened pages as quickly as possible with a fan or blow dryer set on cool.” When completely dry, repeat the process with the b o o k o p e n to t h e n ex t pages. Again, dry quickly. Nok-Out must come in contact with every part of the book in order to comp l e te ly e l i m i n a te t h a t smell. This is going to take time to get through the entire book. But understand that the level of stinkiness indicates how severe the odor p o l l u t i o n . T h e m u s ty mildewy condition didn’t happen overnight. What you’re doing is destroying fungus spores. Mold stains may not be removed, but that musty smell will be eliminated. Keep in mind that the glue in this old book will be e s p e c i a l ly s e n s i t ive to moisture. That’s the reason you want to dry the project very quickly and carefully. You can learn more at And be sure to use the coupon code DPL to get 10 percent off single items.

Expand your circle of friends and protect the relationships you have. Your loved ones could use a little extra attention. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Emphasize what you do and how you do it. Offer your suggestions carefully by being aware of others’ cherished beliefs and preconceptions. Focus on selfimprovement instead of trying to change others.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t expect talks to occur without a hitch. Controversy can be expected, along with uncertainty, disagreements and a debate that will require a well-rounded point of view. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You need to listen instead of talking. Protect your health and your wealth. If you make a snap decision, you can expect opposition. Focus on self-improvement, romance and keeping the peace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) — You should make abrupt changes in order to take everyone by surprise and buy time to maneuver your way into a key position. Use your intelligence and make things happen.

In this deal, how can EastWest defeat two clubs? And which game can be made? South was a tad cautious when he rebid two clubs, not three clubs. It is true that three would have been a slight overbid, but with such good clubs, it would have been acceptable. It was normal for North to pass over two clubs. Over three clubs, though, he would have continued

Ryan A. Farmer, OSB #113795 (858) 750-7600 621 SW Morrison Street, Suite 425 Portland, OR 97205 Of Attorneys for Plaintiff NOTICE TO DEFENDANT/DEFENDANTS READ THESE PAPERS CAREFULLY You must “appear” in this case or the other side will win automatically. To “appear” you must file with the court a legal paper called a “motion” or “answer”. The “motion” or “answer” must be given to the court clerk or administrator within 30 days (or 60 days for Defendant United States or State of Oregon Department of Revenue) along with the required filing fee. It must be in proper form and have proof of service on the plaintiff’s attorney or, if the plaintiff does not have an attorney, proof of service on the plaintiff. If you have questions, you should see an attorney immediately. If you need help in finding an attorney, you may contact the Oregon State Bar’s Law-

with three hearts, and South would have signed off in three notrump with his spade stopper. Note that as the cards lie, three no-trump is unbeatable. Even if West is psychic and leads a diamond, declarer can win on the board and play on hearts. (And, yes, on another subject, some Wests would risk a takeout double over one club, hoping that if partner advances in diamonds, he has good length there.) The defense against two clubs is instructive. When West leads his heart ace, East drops the seven, starting a high-low (echo) with his doubleton. West cashes the heart king, then leads the heart eight, his higher remaining heart being a suit-preference signal for spades. East ruffs and shifts to the spade queen. Let’s assume South covers with his king. West wins with his ace and carefully cashes the spade 10. Now, with every side-suit trick taken, West leads his last heart. When East ruffs with his club jack, it effects an uppercut. South overruffs, but now West collects the sixth defensive trick with his club 10.

The Place Beyond the Pines: In an ambitious drama that combines three stories — using Schenectady, N.Y,. as the backdrop — director and co-writer Derek Cianfrance reteams with his “Blue Valentine” star Ryan Gosling, who plays a motorcycle stunt rider who turns to robbery to support the son he’s just learned he has. That crosses his path with that of a troubled police officer (Bradley Cooper). The concluding portion involves the sons of the two men. Eva Mendes and Ray Liotta also star.

The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were a hit hosting team at last year’s Golden Globes, so the “Saturday Night Live” alumnae are back again to preside over the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s traditionally loose-spirited salute to the best of the previous year’s movies and television. Monday 9:30 p.m. on KCBY Mom: Christy (Anna Faris) suffers an injury but rebuffs Bon-

and Ryan Seacrest continues as host. As always, the season begins with highlights and lowlights from the audition rounds.

Tuesday 9 p.m. on KCBY NCIS: Los Angeles: While in Afghanistan, Kensi and Granger (Daniela Ruah, Miguel Ferrer) work with their colleagues back in Los Angeles when a slain federal agent turns out to have ties to Hawala, an ancient system of money transfer. Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt and Eric Christian Olsen also star in the new episode “Allegiance.”

The Crazy Ones: Singer Josh Groban guest stars in this episode as a former co-worker of Sydney’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar) who’s infatuated — make that obsessed — with her. He writes her a song, which ratchets up the stalker vibe considerably. Simon (Robin Williams) tries to woo the tourism board in Australia, the site of his last bender, as a client. James Wolk also stars in “Sydney, Australia.”

Wednesday 8 p.m. on KLSR

Friday 8 p.m. on KLSR

American Idol: Wild about Harry? You’re in luck this season. Singer Harry Connick Jr., who has appeared as a guest mentor in past seasons of this singing competition, has signed on as a judge, joining Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez — who’s back after a season off. Randy Jackson moves into the position of in-house mentor,

Bones: Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and the team investigate the murder of a struggling country singer (Charlie Worsham) and discover his record label was being dishonest with him. Brennan makes a shocking discovery when she examines a colleague’s hockey injury in the new episode “Big in the Philippines.”
