Burglary cases highlight all-too common crime BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World

At first, the Rev. Jim Graham thought a window screen had blown loose in the storm. Early in the morning of Jan. 11, the priest had been sleeping in his residence at North Bend’s Holy Redeemer Catholic Church when he was woken by a loud banging sound. Graham was about to dismiss the noise until he heard another, different sound from inside the building: the squeak of a door. As he started to get up to investigate, his room was suddenly illuminated by a burst of light from his bedroom door. A man with a flashlight was looking right at him. Graham had become one of the most recent victims of a crime that’s far more common than many think: burglary. Over the past month, Coos County law enforcement agencies have dealt with a number of high-

profile burglaries — several of which were interrupted by the presence of homeowners or law enforcement. In Graham’s case, the intruder took off running. When the priest looked out the window, he could see two figures running north in the dark. The banging he had heard was the sound of the residence’s exterior door being kicked in. “The deadbolt was still engaged, sticking out of the door,” Graham said. After looking around, he found that the thieves had taken all the cash from his wallet and from late offering collections that hadn’t been deposited. “They took the cash and left the checks,” he said. North Bend police responded to the church and started to track the suspects with the department’s K-9 unit, but the rain and wind quickly dissipated the crooks’ scent. Later that week, Kristy Devlin and Travis Sapp weren’t so lucky. The pair were chased down by

North Bend, Coos Bay and Confederated Tribes police after officers say neighbors caught them breaking into an RV on Spruce Street on Tuesday afternoon. According to an affidavit filed in Coos County Circuit Court, officers found the screens on all the RVs’ back windows had been ripped off, and footprints on the door indicated the suspects had tried to kick it in. Coos County Sheriff’s Sgt. Pat Downing says daytime burglaries are for more common than people think. “They’re continual,” he said. “We take burglary reports all during the day.” Downing said that when he started 30 years ago, you knew that if you worked day shift, all you were going to do was take burglary reports. He said the agency’s burglary cases are a mix of both crimes committed during the day — when homeowners are at work — and those SEE CRIME | A8

SCDC among groups that split $140,000 from commissioners The World


COQUILLE — Coos County Commissioners voted to give $25,000 to the South Coast Development Council at a work session on Tuesday. It was less than what John Hitt, interim director for the council, expected. They had asked for $75,000. “We would have preferred $75,000,” he said. “The good news is they’re back here and involved. They understand the SCDC is undertaking some new initiatives. They see it as a positive thing for the county.” South Coast Development Council is a nonprofit, private organization designed to help create living-wage jobs for Coos and western Douglas

counties. It has come under fire in the past for not maintaining transparency or helping small businesses, Commissioner Melissa Cribbins said. The commissioners also awarded $41,000 to the planning department, $6,000 to small business development, $22,500 to the animal damage committee and $20,000 to the parks department. “We only had $140,000 to give to among the ones we chose to fund,” Cribbins said. “No one got the full amount of money they were asking for.” The money was from economic development grant funds from a state lottery to be used for specific things, Cribbins said. She said the council had made changes recently that pleased the commissioners.

“SCDC responded to a lot of changes they were asked to do,” Cribbins said. “There’s no way the county could provide its own economic council.” The county told the council last fall it had “lack of transparency and helping small businesses” so was asked to change, Cribbins said. She felt they’d responded to the requests. “I’ve been impressed with their changes,” Cribbins said. Hitt said some of the council’s goals hinged on people giving them money, which they’d pursue more of, but didn’t want to disclose its investors. He also said the SCDC would focus on helping entrepreneurs and those who sold goods to

SALEM — The Republican National Committee said it has filed a public records request seeking information about Oregon’s troubled health insurance exchange — a sign the GOP sees the Cover Oregon challenges as a chance to make gains. In a letter dated Tuesday, the RNC requested information about compensation and vacation time for two senior officials: Cover Oregon director Rocky King and former Oregon Health Authority Chief Information Officer Carolyn Lawson. King is on leave from the agency and does not plan to return. Lawson has stepped down. Republicans nationally are working hard to use problems with the health insurance exchange against Democrats in the 2014 campaign.

GOP requests records for Cover Oregon


By Alysha Beck, The World

The Rev. Jim Graham woke up around 3 a.m. Jan. 11 to burglars going through his quarters after they kicked in a door at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in North Bend. The thieves stole cash from Graham’s wallet and the church collections.

COOS BAY — Coos Bay schools’ alternative programs earned a seal of approval through reaccreditation. The Harding Learning Center was reaccredited by AdvancED on Wednesday, extending its accreditation for another five years. The center is made up of two schools: Destinations Academy allows students to work at their own pace, while Resource Link is a K-12 charter school. Within Destinations are six alternative programs: the actual Destinations Academy school, a GED program, Child Development Center and Teen Parent Program, Bob Belloni Ranch and CBD9 (a K-12 online school). Harding ’s principal, Shelly McKnight, said the reaccreditation “validates that we do have a rigorous curriculum here.” The AdvancED team’s report included five comfour mendations, recommendations and two areas of improvement. McKnight is a relative newcomer with two years under her belt at Harding — but she’s already implemented several changes, including offering more electives and aligning the center’s schedule with Marshfield High to allow for cross-enrollment. AdvancED simply wants to

see better documentation of the changes made. “Really it was ‘Keep doing what you’re doing, but document it better,’” she said. According to state report cards released last fall, Destinations Academy and Resource Link often fall on opposite ends of the academic spectrum. But that’s because the two schools serve very different kinds of students, McKnight said. Around 35 percent of Destinations students are special needs students on Individualized Education Plans. “Destinations doesn’t start like a regular high school with grade eight or freshman where you have them all four years,” she said. “We receive students who’ve been in trouble with the law and now they’re assigned to school because it’s part of their probation, or students who are behind in credits or are currently failing in their schooling situation. “We are not receiving students here who are excelling in any area. That’s one thing that contributes to — and it’s not an excuse — but it contributes to our performance. We get kids when they’re lower and we have to bring them up further.” On the other hand, Resource Link’s K-12 stuoutperform dents Destinations students in all four core subjects (reading, math, writing and science).

“Anyone who is associated with this epic debacle is potentially vulnerable,” said Michael Short, a spokesman for the RNC. “It’s even more acute in Oregon because the exchange, amazingly, was even worse than the federal one.” He said several Oregon officials were in political jeopardy over the exchange — Gov. John Kitzhaber, who aggressively pushed to create a state-based exchange in Oregon, along with U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley and U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader, who voted for the federal health care law. Republican state Reps. Dennis Richardson of Central Point, who is running against Kitzhaber, and Jason Conger of Bend, who is running against Merkley, have called for Cover Oregon to be shut down.

Novel plan; fatal flaw Our view Public revenues are meant to be managed transparently, not by self-appointed groups.

What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at If plans go as so many people in this region hope they will, construction on the Jordan Cove liquified natural gas plant could begin as early as 2015. If and when that happens, the impacts on our region would be immense, in good ways and bad. More people and more construction activity means more money flowing into the community. It also means higher demands for more public services, like public safety and education. Many of our community leaders are concerned about how they’ll manage those impacts, especially in the initial construction years, when the company will take advantage of property tax exemptions. Under current tax and revenue structures, Jordan Cove would receive an overall five-year tax exemption during the construction period. From there on, taxes the company pays would go primarily to the Coos County Urban Renewal Agency-North Bay District. Our leaders would like to see that money start coming to the communities earlier, and be spread out over

the entire county. And they’d like to see the maximum amount of money possible go to schools. However, based on the formulas the state uses to fund schools, any local tax revenues given to local schools will ultimately mean the state will cut its contributions here. Bottom line: if the money that Jordan Cove would have paid in taxes is somehow redirected to local schools through the urban renewal agency, the state will reduce the amount of money it provides to those schools. It would be a wash. But consider this: what if there was a way to keep most of that money right here in the county, insulated from state funding formulas in a way that wouldn’t raise eyebrows? And what if the money could be distributed proportionately to the cities, county and districts, instead of just to the urban renewal district? Well, such a plan exists now, crafted over the last few months by the cities of Coos Bay and North Bend, Coos County and spearheaded by the Port of Coos Bay. Your community leaders unveiled that plan at last week’s Bay Area Chamber of Commerce lunch. We won’t attempt to break down the detail of the plan here. You can see it yourself at: But here are the basics: First, Jordan Cove applies for a long-term Enterprise Zone tax exemption, in this case, for 15 years. Instead of paying property taxes, the company pays community service fees, in this case, beginning at $12

million annually. The majority of the money goes to two new nonprofit corporations, the South Coast Community Foundation and the Bayfront Investment Corp. South Coast Community Foundation divvies half the money to the region’s schools and creates an endowment with the other half. Bayfront supports Coos Bay waterfront development. Monies also go to the various taxing districts. All the plan needs is endorsement by the principle local government agencies: the cities, the county and the port. The paperwork has already been filed to create the South Coast foundation 501(c)(3) at the state level and the work is underway to effect the federal filing. It already has three board members. The concept of keeping local public revenues local is, in itself, not unusual; there are examples across the state and across the country. In our case it’s especially understandable. This region has been struggling to lift itself out of an economic wasteland for two generations at least. Few would reject the notion of keeping as much of this windfall as possible right here. But there is one aspect of the plan that we believe has a fatal flaw. As 501(c)(3)s, the nonprofit corporations lie outside the realm of public accountability. They won’t be subject to the state’s open meetings or records laws. They won’t be required to divulge their dealings or otherwise place themselves under public scrutiny of any kind. We would be

able to see tax records and some basic financial information, but that’s it. They aren’t required to take into consideration what the public may want. South Coast Community’s founding board of directors, all well-known community leaders, were handpicked by the plan’s crafters. The board decides how many additional members it will have, and the board — no one else — picks who those members will be. Indeed, the plan designed these nonprofits to be that way. Make no mistake. The current directors of this board are some of the county’s most respected and experienced citizens. They are veritable pillars of the community, and we have no doubt about their commitment and their integrity. But this isn’t about the commitment or integrity. This certainly isn’t about whether an LNG plant is built. This is about fiscal accountability concerning public funds. And what they are called — taxes, service fees, etc. — doesn’t matter. Parts of this plan make sense, and there are other parts that one could take issue with. But the fatal flaw lies in a deliberate effort to avoid the kind of public accountability we’re guaranteed from our elected leaders. That flaw makes the plan unacceptable in its current form. On Tuesday, in this space, we’ll elaborate, and suggest an alternative.

Single-payer insurance idea lives on The prospects for single-payer health care — adored by many liberals, despised by private health insurers and looking better all the time to others — did not die in the Affordable Care Act. It was thrown a lifeline through a little-known provision tucked in the famously long legislation. Single-payer groups in several states are now lining up to make use of Section 1332. Vermont is way ahead of the pack, but Hawaii, Oregon, New York, Washington, California, Colorado and Maryland have strong single-payer movements. First, some definitions. Single-payer is a system where the government pays all medical bills. Canada has a single-payer system. By the way, Canada’s system is not socialized medicine but socialized insurance (like Medicare). In Canada, the doctors work for themselves. Under Section 1332, states may apply for “innovation waivers” starting in 2017. They would let states try paths to health care reform different from those mapped out by the Affordable Care Act — as long as they meet certain of its goals. States must cover as many people and offer coverage as com-

prehensive and affordable. And they can’t increase the federal deficit. Qualifying states would receive the same federal funding that would have been available under Obamacare. My conservative friends complain that the innovation waiver requirements FROMA would rule out everything HARROP but single-payer. No doubt they are diligently working Columnist on a more privatized alternative that would cover less, cost more and raise the federal deficit. “Vermont is the only state where they’re thinking very concretely about using (the waiver) as part of their plan,” Judy Solomon, health care expert at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, told me. Hawaii got close. Its Legislature passed a single-payer bill in 2009, which was vetoed by then-Gov. Linda Lingle, a Republican. Lawmakers overrode the veto, but Lingle refused to implement the law. The quest remains rocky, Dr. Stephen

Kemble, a single-payer advocate and past president of the Hawaii Medical Association, told me. “If Vermont can get things going, that would make things easier for others.” In Washington state, “our focus is to work on grass-roots support,” says Dr. David McLanahan, Washington coordinator for Physicians for a National Health Program. “We’re laying the groundwork” for legislation and a request for an innovation waiver. Problems in the Obamacare rollout have energized fans of single-payer. Computer glitches aside, the troubles stem chiefly from the law’s complexity. Single-payer is all about simplicity. Under the Vermont plan, employers and individuals would no longer have to buy private health coverage. They would instead pay a tax. The state-run system would also cover more things, like dental. And oh, yes, Vermonters could choose their hospitals and doctors. William Hsiao, an economist at the Harvard School of Public Health, has projected that Vermont’s annual health care spending could fall 25 percent. The savings

would more than pay for the new benefits. How? Fewer dollars would go to advertising, executive windfalls and payouts to investors. Doctors dealing with one insurer would save on office staff. Fraud and abuse would shrink as a comprehensive database makes crooks easier to spot. It’s too bad that some liberals have turned single-payer into a religion and are whacking the Vermont plan for not being pure enough. Vermont is permitting continued private coverage for very practical reasons. Bear in mind that the most acclaimed health care systems — in Germany, in France and our Medicare — combine single-payer for basics with private coverage for the extras. Vermont intends to use its state health insurance exchange as the structure on which to build its single-payer system. By 2017, the road to an innovation waiver should be clear. Go forth, Green Mountain State. Show us what you can do.

up to the beach cleanup task anyway last Wednesday. Way to go, guys!

So, while chunks of reinforced concrete dock and polystyrene foam from the Charleston area were floating amok in the waters and onto the beach near Cape Arago Lighthouse this week, the most vexing question had to be: Who’s responsible for cleaning up this mess? Well, it wasn’t theirs, but 35 members of the Southwestern Oregon Community College baseball team, along with two resident directors and the college’s graphic designer, stepped

Obituaries and State Incomplete pass causes friendship to suffer DEAR ABBY: Our neighbors of 14 years watch our dog while we are away, which is quite often. They have free access to our home with the key we have given them. Two months ago, the husband hit on me, really pushing the issue for me to have sex with him. Then he apologized like it was nothing. I was upset, scared, shocked and told my husband because I was concerned. My husband was not happy about it. We have not been able to look at him or his wife (my friend) since then. We are all middle-aged. Should I tell her why we have been absent, or can you help me figure out what to do? — BADLY IN NEED OF ADVICE DEAR BADLY IN NEED: Make other plans for your dog when you travel, change the locks on your doors, DEAR and if your friend asks why you have been “ a b s e n t ,” tell her why. She may not like to hear it, but she s h o u l d know that if JEANNE PHILLIPS your friendship with her is going to continue, it will have to be without her husband being included. (She should have herself checked for STDs in case her husband has managed to get lucky with a neighbor who WAS willing.) DEAR ABBY: I’m 31 and have been married to my husband for 21⁄2 years. He wants a baby in the worst way. I don’t, and I have been clear about it. Abby, my husband helps with nothing. I’m constantly cleaning, doing the laundry and cooking meals. That’s OK, but I’d like some help. It never happens. I have been nice about it,and I have been angry. We agreed to buy a bigger house and then have a baby, but at this rate, I already have one — MY HUSBAND! Is there any hope? — MAMA ALREADY DEAR MAMA ALREADY: No, I don’t think so. You married a man who is lazy, or passive aggressive and angry at your refusal to have a baby, or has been so spoiled by his mother that he thinks this is a normal way to live.Counseling might help you get through to him, but I wouldn’t bet on it. DEAR ABBY: I am 10 years old and I have a major boy problem. My ex (Bob) broke up with me, and I felt funny around him and a little mad. So I kind of moved on. I went to my crush who had previously asked me out, and I said yes. Now I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do. I asked my mom and didn’t like the answer,so now I’m asking you. — CONFUSED GIRL IN ARKANSAS DEAR CONFUSED GIRL: I don’t know what your mother told you, but here’s my advice: At 10, you’re too young to be in an exclusive relationship with anyone. Because you regret saying yes, tell him your mother disapproves and you cannot go against her wishes. D E A R A B B Y : Can you please tell me the proper way to eat a taco salad? Do you crunch up the taco bowl, eat everything out of it and then eat the taco bowl? I asked my husband, and he said to ask you. — TRACI IN AMSTERDAM, N.Y. DEAR TRACI: There are no rules of etiquette governing how to eat a taco salad. However, when I order one, I usually eat the contents of the bowl, then chip off pieces of the tortilla if I still have enough room. I have also seen diners order the salad and ask that it be served on a salad plate in order to save a few calories.

Nadine Hazel Wells Oct. 11, 1929 – Jan. 1, 2014

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Nadine Hazel Wells, 84, of Coos Bay, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at Coos Bay Chapel, 685 Anderson Ave., with pastor Don Berney of New Beginnings Christian Fellowship presiding. Private cremation rites were held at Nadine Wells Ocean View Memory Gardens in Coos Bay. Nadine was born Oct. 11, 1929, in Tillamook, to Harold H. Haugen and Vivian (Ostrander) Haugen. She passed away peacefully Jan. 1, 2014, at Life Care Center in Coos Bay. Nadine moved to the Coos

While stationed in American Samoa, he fell in love with his future wife, Fa’asei, who was the daughter of a high chief. The couple married in 1977, and soon had two daughters, Alatasi a n d Elizabeth. Along the way, the family made homes in Bainbridge James Clancy I s l a n d , Wa s h . ; We s t p o r t , Wa s h . ; Guam; New Jersey and finally North Bend. While his adventurous Coast Guard lifestyle took him away from family for months on end, it also provided him with stories he loved to share throughout his life. This vagabond existence was in-sync with his upbringing as the son of an

U.S. Air Force officer. Florida, Germany, Virginia, Okinawa and finally Arizona were all stops during his childhood. In 1968, he graduated from Palo Verde High School in Tucson, Ariz. Soon after, he moved to Astoria, to attend Clatsop Community College. In 1969, he joined the U.S. Air Force and was shipped to Vietnam for a year tour starting in December 1971. After arriving home, he purchased a brand-new Volkswagen Beetle. He promptly installed state-ofthe-art German car speakers and went on a series of crosscontinental solo backpacking trips between 1973-75 during school breaks from Portland Community College (PCC). Highlights included jaunts in Banff, Jasper, and Waterton Lakes national parks in Canada, as well as several trails throughout the Olympic National Forest in Washington state. He earned an associate

degree from PCC in machinery technology in 1975, but a poor job market led him to a career in the Coast Guard. After retiring from service in 1993, Jim carried on his incredible work ethic for 20 years at Walmart in Coos Bay. He also lovingly cared for his father during Richard’s final years. Jim enjoyed a variety of hobbies throughout his life, including listening to music, scuba diving, reading, car detailing, crabbing, visiting his family beach house in Seaview, Wash., playing with his grandkids and bowling with his wife. Always the proud father, he would regale any listening ear with updates on his daughters. Jim is survived by his wife, Fa’asei Clancy of North Bend; daughter, Alatasi Clancy and son-in-law, Daniel Hiestand of Springfield; daughter, Elizabeth Brophy and sonin-law, Eric Brophy of Springfield; grandsons,

daughters, Elizabeth and Darron Gibson of Gilbert, Ariz., and Jennifer and JR Neptune of Coos Bay; sons, Damon and Kristen Olsen of Albany and Jarred Olsen of North Bend; sisters, Susan and Kerry Jordan of Sally Olsen Vancouver, Wash., Rowena and Al Lollar of Portland, Janice and Tom Thurston of Camas, Wash., and Darlene and Jesse Lollar of Texas; 10 grandchildren; and one great-grandson.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Dwain Olsen. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Cremation rites were held at Ocean View Crematory in Coos Bay.

Aug. 28, 1936 - Jan. 5, 2014

A memorial and celebration of life for Cherrill Frances (Vanderploeg) Corliss, 77, of Coquille, will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Coquille Christian Community Church, 625 E. 10th St., in Coquille. Cherrill Frances (Vanderploeg) Corliss was born Aug. 28, 1936, in Hollywood, Calif., to Charles and Elizabeth Vanderploeg. She passed away Jan. 5, 2014, in Coquille. Cherrill, or Cherry as her parents often called her grew up on the Monterey coast, attending a one-room school house when Monterey had more horses and cows then people. In fact she could ride the family cow or horse right to school. Her grandmother was the school teacher and owned a large ranch overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The family operated a mill on the ranch which caught on fire and burned everything they owned. At one point the family moved into the Sierras and lived in a tent with snow 10 feet deep while her father logged in the adjacent forest. Cherrill attended high school in Oroville, Calif. and spent a term in Mexico living with a family and learning about local culture and sharing her Christian faith with members of local churches. She married Harvell Smith in 1957 and had many interesting years trying to keep up with him and their four children. His job took them around the country and their sense of adventure took them down roads, rivers and trails which Cherrill bravely, graciously and with Dutch determination made sure everyone, including herself, made it out alive. This included houseboat trips down the Ohio River in which waves engulfed the boat, washing away everything they owned and Cherrill couldn’t swim. She was terrified of water, but wouldn’t let her fear stop her from participating. She did

Cherrill Corliss make it her mission to ensure her children and grandchildren knew how to swim. Cherrill was loved by everyone and selflessly gave her time, talents and blood sweat and tears to her family and friends. She wasn’t one to stand around. She would help family and friends stack wood, clean house, babysit, bandage a wound, give advice, paint, build, garden, braid hair, massage and was a wonderful tickler. Cherrill’s faith was a big part of her life. She moved to Coquille in 1991 and attended the Coquille Christian Community Church. She married Al Corliss in 2001 and was beloved by him and his four children. She was a registered nurse and worked for South Coast Hospice for many years. In January 2013 she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease and faced this disease with the same spirit of determination as house boating on the mighty Ohio. She will be so missed by us all. She is survived by her sister, two daughters, two sons, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Donations may be made in her honor to the Coquille Christian Community Church, 625 E. 10th Street, Coquille, OR 97423 Arrangements are under the direction of Coos Bay Chapel, 541-267-3131.

Nation Ohio’s long execution spells unclear future COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The long and fitful execution of an Ohio inmate with an untested combination of chemicals brought cries of cruel and unusual punishment Friday and could further narrow the options for other states that are casting about for new lethal injection drugs. A gasping, snorting Dennis McGuire took 26 minutes to die after the chemicals began flowing Thursday — the longest execution of the 53 carried out in Ohio since capital punishment resumed 15 years ago, according to an Associated Press analysis. McGuire’s adult children complained it amounted to

torture, with the convicted killer’s son, also named Dennis, saying: “Nobody deserves to go through that.” Whether McGuire felt any pain was unclear. But Ohio’s experience could influence the decisions made in the 31 other lethal-injection states, many of which have been forced in the past few years to rethink the drugs they use. States are in a bind for two main reasons: European companies have cut off supplies of certain execution drugs because of opposition to capital punishment in Europe. And states can’t simply switch to other chemicals without triggering legal challenges from defense attorneys.

Obama tightens reins on surveillance programs WASHINGTON (AP) — Tightening the reins on the nation’s sweeping surveillance operations, President Barack Obama on Friday ordered new limits on the way intelligence officials access phone records from hundreds of millions of Americans — and moved toward eventually stripping the massive data collection from the government’s hands. But Obama’s highly anticipated intelligence recommendations left many key details unresolved, most notably who might take over

as keeper of the vast trove of records.Final decisions on that and other major questions were left to the Justice Department and to intelligence agencies that oppose changing surveillance operations, and to a Congress that is divided about the future of the programs. If fully implemented, Obama’s proposals would mark the most significant changes to the surveillance laws that were passed in reaction to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

NATIONAL D I G E S T Surgeon gen. renews battle aginst smoking

The Associated Press

California Gov. Jerry Brown reaches for a chart showing the volatility of capital gains revenue that the state depends on for budgeting, during a news conference last week in Sacramento, Calif., in which he unveiled his proposed 2014-2015 state budget.A slow but steady economic recovery is generating more tax revenue than many states had anticipated. California, once the epitome of busted budgets, is now forecasting a $3.2 billion budget surplus.

Surpluses spark debate on tax cuts, spending JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — As legislatures return to action and governors outline their budget plans, politicians in many states are facing a pleasant election-year challenge: What to do with all the extra money? A slow but steady economic recovery is generating more tax revenue than many states had anticipated, offering elected officials tantalizing choices about whether to ply voters with tax breaks, boost spending for favorite programs or sock away cash for another rainy day. It’s a tricky question because of the economic experiments begun almost nationwide since the recession. A couple of dozen states controlled by Republicans have been seeking prosperity with tax cuts and less government. Their Democratic counter-

parts have sought to fortify their economies by investing more in education and other social services. The clamor for new spending is already revealing fissures among some governors and lawmakers. And clashes have arisen even within the same party, suggesting that the debate in some places could widen beyond typical partisan disputes. The National Association of State Budget Officers projects that almost all states will see “fairly decent surpluses” in their 2014 budgets. For some, it may be the first extra cash since before the recession began in late 2007. In many states, the surpluses coincide with elections that mark the first opportunity for officials to be judged on the results of their economic policies.

WASHINGTON (AP) — One in 13 children could see their lives shortened by smoking unless the nation takes more aggressive action to end the tobacco epidemic, the U.S. Surgeon General said Friday — even as, astonishingly, scientists added still more diseases to the long list of cigarettes’ harms. “Enough is enough,” acting Surgeon General Borish Lushniak declared at a White House ceremony unveiling the 980-page report that urges new resolve to make the next generation a smoke-free generation. “The clock is ticking,” Lushniak said. “We can’t wait another 50 years.”

U.S. government will stay open until October WASHINGTON (AP) — After last fall’s tumultuous, bitterly partisan debt ceiling and government shutdown fights, a sense of fiscal fatigue seems to be setting in among many Washington policymakers as President Barack Obama prepares for his fifth State of the Union address later this month. A declining U.S. budget deficit, still-accommodative Federal Reserve and a smallbore budget deal negotiated last month — given final approval Thursday in Congress and signed by Obama on Friday — are helping to temper partisan rhetoric in the short term as attention in Washington shifts to the approaching midterm elections.

Pilots were confused by runway lights WASHINGTON (AP) — Southwest Airlines pilots who recently landed at the wrong airport in Missouri have told investigators they were confused by the small airport’s runway lights, believing it to be a larger airport in nearby Branson, the National Transportation Safety Board said Friday. During the landing approach, the pilots contacted the Branson control tower. They were told by controllers they were 15 miles from their target. But the pilots responded that they had the airfield in sight.

Dead Rat A rat had died in our duct work at the church building. It began to smell, and the smell was not simply distracting, it was crippling. The program we had planned for Saturday had to be moved to another location. After the source of the odor was removed, the smell continued to fill the air. We attempted to get rid of the odor by using sprays, deodorants, and you name it. Sunday you could still smell it, Monday the doors were opened and fans were plugged in. As I write this, the offensive aroma still lingers. I pray that by Sunday, which is 6 days away, we will have rid ourselves of all the evidence of a dead rat. There is a lesson in this, and that is when you have a problem you need to immediately confront it, get to the source of it and resolve whatever it is that is causing the conflict. In this case, evidence of the problem surfaced five days before anyone decided to get rid of it. Delaying did not solve the issue. Furthermore, attempting to cover things up will not solve it. You and your children have unresolved issues? Deal with them or they will only get worse. You and your spouse ignoring problems? Address them before greater issues arise. Come worship with us Sunday.

UN says 4 UN personnel killed in Kabul attack UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says four United Nations personnel have been killed in the “horrific attack” on a Kabul restaurant. Officials say a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Kabul restaurant filled with foreigners and affluent Afghans having dinner Friday night, while two gunmen sneaked in through the back door and opened fire.

WORLD D I G E S T Putin: Gay visitors welcome in Russia SOCHI, Russia (AP) — President Vladimir Putin sought Friday to reassure gay visitors that they are welcome in Russia despite a law banning gay “propaganda” to minors. Responding to a question from an Olympics volunteer during a visit in the Black Sea resort city, Putin vowed that gays face no discrimination in Russia and could feel “at ease.” But he emphasized they can’t express their views on gay rights issues to anyone under age.

WHO: Pakistan city is largest polio pool KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan’s city of Peshawar is the world’s largest pool of the polio virus, with the vast majority of cases in the country and neighboring Afghanistan tracing back to the restive northwestern city, the World Health Organization announced Friday. Some 90 percent of polio cases found around Pakistan can be genetically linked to the city, the U.N. organization said.

Cease-fire, prisoner swap proposed in Syria BEIRUT (AP) — Syria’s government Friday proposed a cease-fire in the embattled city of Aleppo and a prisoner exchange with the opposition, a move that appeared aimed at presenting President Bashar Assad as a responsible partner less than a week before an international peace conference.

World Benedict XVI defrocked 400 priests in 2 years VATICAN CITY (AP) — In his last two years as pope, Benedict XVI defrocked nearly 400 priests for raping and molesting children, more than twice as many as the two years that preceded a 2010 explosion of sex abuse cases in Europe and beyond, according to a document obtained Friday by The Associated Press and an analysis of Vatican statistics. The data — 260 priests defrocked in 2011 and 124 in 2012, a total of 384 — represented a dramatic increase over the 171 priests defrocked in 2008 and 2009. It was the first compilation of the number of priests forcibly removed for sex abuse by the Vatican’s inhouse procedures — and a canon lawyer said the real figure is likely far higher, since the numbers don’t include sentences meted out

The Associated Press

Pope Benedict XVI meets with his brother Monsignor Georg Ratzinger at the Vatican in April 2012. A document obtained by The Associated Press shows Pope Benedict XVI defrocked nearly 400 priests over just two years for molesting children. by diocesan courts. The spike started a year after the Vatican decided to double the statute of limitations on the crime, enabling victims who were in their late 30s to report abuse committed against them when they were children.

The Vatican has actually made some data public year by year in its annual reports. But an internal Vatican document prepared to help the Holy See defend itself before a U.N. committee this week in Geneva compiled the statistics over the course of several

years. Analysis of the raw data cited in that document, which was obtained by the AP, confirmed the figures. Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s U.N. ambassador in Geneva, referred to just one of the statistics in the course of eight hours of often pointed criticism and questioning Thursday from the U.N. human rights committee. He said 418 new child sex abuse cases were reported to the Vatican in 2012. The Vatican initially said the AP report seemed to be a misinterpretation of the 418 figure. However, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, later issued a correction based on confirmation of the AP calculations by the Vatican’s former sex crimes prosecutor, Monsignor Charles Scicluna.

Fish plan is little changed PORTLAND (AP) — The federal government’s management plan for protecting salmon and steelhead populations imperiled by federal dams in the Columbia River basin differs little from its earlier version and continues to rely heavily on habitat improvement. The court-ordered plan, known as a biological opinion, was released by NOAA Fisheries Service on Friday. Its various iterations have been litigated in court for more than two decades. The most recent plan was issued in 2008 to cover a 10year period through 2018, and a supplemental biological opinion was added in 2010. The plan was struck down in court in 2011 for the third time — this time for depending too much on habitat improvements whose benefits are unknown. Conservation and fishing groups, Oregon and the Nez Perce Tribe, which have challenged the previous plans in court, say the new version preserves the status quo and does little to help the fish. Thirteen species of salmon and steelhead are listed as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act in the Columbia River basin, and some have been listed for more than twenty years. Even as officials have spent millions on habitat restoration and are touting its benefits in this latest plan,

CRIME Burglaries can happen any time Continued from Page A1 committed at night and discovered in the morning. The seasoned deputy said it’s hard to pin down the causal factors behind changes in burglary trends. “If there’s a new type of drug that comes out that everybody wants, they’re trying to find money to get it,” Downing said. “The

Despite millions spent on habitat repair, fish populations have changed little they acknowledge that fish populations are barely hanging on and nowhere close to being recovered. “The actions are designed to move us in a direction toward recovery and avoid jeopardy. The plan is not designed to achieve recovery,” said Barry Thom, deputy regional administrator of NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region. Critics have long called for the government to examine the possibility of breaching four Snake River dams, increasing the water spilled over dams to allow more fish to escape a trip through turbines and increasing river flows. Ten years ago, after rejecting yet another management plan, U.S. District Judge James Redden ordered the government to do spill, which allows water to pass over the dams when juvenile salmon are migrating to the ocean. By spilling water over the dams to help fish, authorities are giving up millions of dollars in revenue from electricity generated by turbines. In 2011, Redden, who announced his retirement last year and stepped off the case, asked NOAA Fisheries to consider if more aggressive

actions such as dam removal are necessary. But the new plan does not consider the possibility of breaching dams or increasing spill, because officials say such actions aren’t needed. The government says habitat projects are starting to work, with the number of fish returning to spawn higher, and the plan will continue to protect the fish into the future. Yet officials acknowledge that productivity — the number of the next generation of adults produced by returning spawning fish — was lower. That’s because, with the spawning population higher, there is less habitat in tributaries and not enough juvenile fish survive, officials said. Hence the need to restore more habitat. Proponents of the plan praised the government’s habitat projects and pointed to last year’s large fall chinook salmon returns as evidence of improvement. “More than 1 million fall chinook salmon returned to spawn last year, the highest numbers since Bonneville Dam opened in 1938,” said Terry Flores, executive director of Northwest RiverPartners, which repre-

sents electric utility, agriculture, ports and other businesses. But critics say that while restoring habitat could benefit fish, habitat by itself won’t cause salmon and steelhead to return. They say main stem passage is the survival bottleneck for the species, not a crowded habitat. And while they agree some fish stocks are showing modest improvement, they are nowhere near recovery, said Todd True, an attorney with Earthjustice who represents environmental groups in the court case. Only a tiny percent of adult fish are returning to the rivers, True said, and a large percentage of those are hatchery fish. On some runs, he said, up to 80 percent of returnees are hatchery fish. “That doesn’t sound to me like habitat is beginning to work,” he said. Critics also decried the plan for reducing spill on several dams and for not including separate measures to address the effects of climate change. Officials said habitat projects already “help us buffer against future climate change impacts.” Whether or not the plan is again challenged in court, it will be in place just for another four years. In short order, the government says it will need to start discussing another biological opinion that would be put in place in 2018.

weather makes kind of a seasonal change when it’s rainy and wet.” Mark Monson, Coos County’s chief deputy district attorney, said that while he couldn’t speak to specific trends, two of the three burglary cases he’s handling were daytime incidents. One of them is the case of J.D. Burch, who was arrested on New Year’s Eve after deputies say he burglarized an East Bay home in the morning, and then returned with a female accomplice to finish the job. What police say Burch

didn’t account for was the return of the homeowner, who fired several shots at the fleeing suspects with a .44 Magnum revolver. Coos County Chief Deputy District Attorney Mark Monson says it’s likely that Burch will be facing more charges from earlier crimes based on additional evidence. “The investigation is ongoing,” Monson said. “I do expect that we will be able to connect Mr. Burch with other burglaries.” For his parish’s own woes, Graham said the neighbor-

hood isn’t unfamiliar with crime. The nearby woods, he says, are often home to transients engaged in all manner of sundry activities. This week, the church is holding its first meetings to discuss what security measures it may need to take in the future.

Destinations shows gains Continued from Page A1 “They’re getting students in the lower grades and continuing to keep them sometimes,” she said. “Typically students do not come to Resource Link because they’re behind in credits or failing. They do because they’re home-schooled and want enhancement or they’re students who have been very ill and are finding it difficult to attend school every day. Natalie Hill is a perfect example of that.” Destinations has shown improvement in other areas. Freshmen who were on track to graduate jumped from 38 percent in the 20112012 school year to 60 percent in the 2012-2013 school year.

GOP Request hasn’t been received Continued from Page A1 after it was supposed to launch, Cover Oregon’s website still can’t enroll anyone from start to finish. Using a backup process that requires workers to process applications by hand, the state has managed to enroll 65,000 people in health coverage, about 23,000 of them in private insurance and the rest in the Oregon Health Plan, the state’s version of Medicaid. Another 118,000 have enrolled in Medicaid through a separate process that bypasses the exchange.

Harding Learning Center’s two schools performed on opposite ends of the academic spectrum in state report cards issued last fall, though principal Shelly McKnight said that’s because the two schools serve very different types of students. Destinations Academy allows students to work at their own pace, while Resource Link serves as the district’s K-12 charter school. The four core standards were measured in the 20122013 school year. The most recent data available on four-year graduation, five-year completion and dropout rates is from the 2011-2012 school year.

Brad Martin, executive director of the Democratic Party of Oregon, called the Republican move a “press stunt.” He said the health care law is providing coverage to thousands of people who didn’t have it before and preventing insurance companies from spending too much money on administration. “I don’t think their strategy, rooting for failure, is going to work in Oregon,” Martin said. “It’s not the Oregon way.” Cover Oregon spokesman Michael Cox said the agency has not received the public records request. Short said it was sent through the U.S. Postal Service and may not have arrived yet.

Monica, a 65-year-old welder, was indicted Tuesday on two counts each of murder and first-degree abuse of a corpse and one count of identity theft. Robert Haney, a 56-yearold ranch handyman and tenant, has been identified as one of the victims. The other has not been named. “When she killed my dog, I asked where it was and she said, ‘In with the pigs,”’ Pana told the Mail Tribune. The indictment says one victim was killed on Aug. 1, 2012, and the other on Sept. 9, 2013.

Ex-renter says killings suspect fed pets to pigs MEDFORD (AP) — A former tenant says a woman accused of killing and dismembering two people on a Southern Oregon ranch shot three of his pets and fed them, as well as dead sheep, to her pigs. Patiphon Pana, a 49year-old Thai national, rented a room at the ranch for three years, The Medford Mail Tribune reported. He told the paper that before he bought a house and moved away, Susan Monica shot two of his dogs and one of his cats and used them for feed.

Pirates win on the road THE WORLD Marshfield’s boys basketball team overcame a sensational night by Erik Johnson to beat host South Umpqua 67-54 Friday night and regain sole possession of first place in the Far West League standings. The Pirates improved to 4-1, which leaves them a half game in front of North Bend, Sutherlin and Brookings-Harbor, who all are 3-1. Johnson had 31 points Friday, including 23 in the first half. The Pirates didn’t grab the lead for good until midway through the third quarter, when Austin Howerton hit back-to-back 3-pointers and Justin Cooper added a jumper to put Marshfield in front 44-37. “We kept rolling after that,” Marshfield coach Doug Miles said, who termed the win a good one, especially because of how the Lancers played. “They were really impressive,” Miles said. “Johnson was so hot. We were faceguarding him. We even put two kids on him at one point. We were trying everything we could.” Johnson hit seven 3-pointers in the game. None of his teammates scored more than six points. Jake Miles had 20 points for Marshfield, while Rylee Trendell had 13 and Howerton 12, all on 3pointers. The Pirates host Sutherlin on Tuesday to finish the first round of league play. “That will be fun,” Doug Miles said. North Bend 69, Douglas 27: The Bulldogs dominated from the start, building a 43-11 halftime lead before giving several younger players extended time on the court. “I was really happy with the way we moved the ball on offense,” North Bend coach Tom Nicholls said. “I thought defensively we did a nice job.” Nicholls said he also was proud of the way his team rebounded the ball, and added that both Ty Roane and Matt Woods had outstanding games. “Matt played his most complete game of the year,” Nicholls said. Woods finished with 25 points and Roane added 13. Nicholls gave Drew Matthews the night off. The Bulldogs played the bulk of the fourth quarter with two freshmen and three sophomores on the floor. “Those kids stepped up and played well,” Nicholls said. Brookings-Harbor 61, Siuslaw 35: The Bruins briefly moved into a share of first place by beating host Siuslaw 61-35 at Florence on Thursday. Dexter Vaughn hit five 3pointers — all in the third quarter — to lead the way for the Bruins with 15 points. Brookings-Harbor outscored the Vikings 25-6 in the third to blow open a close game. Justin Murray had 13 points for which Brookings-Harbor, improved to 3-1 in league, matching Marshfield and Sutherlin. Preston Mitchell had 10 points for the Vikings, who fell to 1-4.

REEDSPORT — Reedsport figured out a way to dominate an entire game and still only win by a single point. The Braves were able to hold off the visiting Bobcats and a big 17-5 fourth quarter run to take down their Sunset Conference rival Myrtle Point 45-44 on Friday. The Braves led 33-24 through three quarters, but got complacent in the fourth while Myrtle Point got hot from 3-point range.

“You can lose a nine-point lead as quick as anything,” Braves head coach Stu Richardson said. “It’s always hard to defend a lead; it’s easy to attack a basket when you’re coming from behind. We held them off, that’s what counted.” Richardson pointed to backto-back 3-pointers by Lyndzi Robbins and Grace Herman that cut the lead to 36-30 as the jumping off point before Myrtle Point tied the game at 41 with just under three minutes left. After scoring just two points in


After getting shut out in the first, Doane collected 16 points, eight rebounds, two blocks, two steals and an assist the final three quarters. On defense, Doane had watched tape on her assignment Friday, Myrtle Point’s primary scorer Morgan Newton. After Newton scored six points in the first quarter, Doane held her to 3for-11 shooting with three turnovers. She still had a teambest 14 points. SEE GIRLS | B2

Her earlier struggles fueled her big final frame. “I just wanted to win,” Hermann said. “I didn’t want to lose. I know I made mistakes really bad in the beginning and I just wanted to come back and take it to them.” The game was salted away with 1:30 left after Reedsport’s Kayla Doane sank two free throws, putting a cap on a brilliant night (or at least final three quarters).

Committee recommends keeping tourney here BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

The Class 3A state basketball tournament would stay in the Bay Area under the final proposal for the Oregon School Activities Association Championship Committee. The committee held its last meeting this week as it finalized its proposal for the four-year time block that starts this fall. The OSAA Executive Board will approve the proposal, or make changes to it, at its Feb. 3 meeting. While the proposal leaves things

RECAP From Page B1 Logan Shea had 18 points, Quentin Coomer added 12 and Evan Henson scored 10, despite being slowed by illness. “Everyone was working in unison,” Nice said, adding that the Tigers also did a good job on defense containing Glide’s big men. Cory Finlay had 12 points to lead Glide. Bandon also got good news off the court. The injury suffered by Derik Cox in Tuesday’s win over Coquille was just a displaced kneecap, and he should be able to go again in about a week. “That was a nice bright spot to start the day,” Nice said.

Skyline League Umpqua Valley Christian 58, Pacific 29: The Monarchs led 28-10 at halftime and kept the Pirates winless in league play. Ian Graham had 19 points and Jordan Mesa added 15 for UVC. Cole Kreutzer had 12 points and Ethan Cline added six in his return from an injury for Pacific.

looks,” Marshfield coach Bruce Bryant said. “We just couldn’t get the ball to drop.” The Pirates also struggled at the line until late, when Baily Garrett hit four straight free throws to help secure the win. Garrett had a team-best 14 points and Jade Chavez added 10 for the Pirates, who won their third straight league game to improve to 3-2 heading into Tuesday’s game against top-ranked Sutherlin. “It’s at home; that helps,” Bryant said. “Our style of play and our team makeup, we just don’t adjust very well to the kind of physical games they allow you to play up here.” Rory Pettersen had 16 points for South Umpqua. Douglas 56, North Bend 42: The Bulldogs had one of their best efforts of the season, but couldn’t keep up with the Trojans at Winston. Hailey Finnigan had 11 points, while Codi Wallace added 10 and Kadie Forderer nine for North Bend. Douglas got 14 points from Ally Schofield and 12 from Alex Richey as both players made four 3-pointers. The Trojans improved to 31, tied for second place with Brookings-Harbor. North Bend fell to 0-4. Brookings-Harbor 54, Siuslaw 40: The Bruins improved to 3-1 in Far West League play,pulling away from the Vikings in the second quarter Thursday.

While wrestling remains in a regional format, it will be joined by boys and girls golf. The Far West League, which includes Marshfield and North Bend, will join the Skyline League in Class 4A wrestling (as it is now) and boys golf. The Class 4A-3A-2A-1A girls golf district includes 21 teams — the two Class 4A leagues with the rest of the smaller schools in the

Sunset Conference Glide 44, Bandon 29: The Wildcats pulled away from the Tigers in the second quarter to pick up a big road win. Glide improved to 2-0 against Bandon and Coquille as the three teams battle for two spots in the Class 3A playoffs. The Wildcats visit Coquille on Tuesday. Amanda Hatley had 10 points for Glide on Friday, when the Wildcats did their biggest damage on the boards. “Our offense, we ran what we wanted to run,” Bandon coach Amanda Duey said. “Defensively, we ran what we wanted to run. It was just their offensive boards that killed us.” Glide had numerous second-chance opportunities in the game, and compounded some of them with Bandon fouls. The Tigers went just 3-for10 from the line, though Duey was only critical of the shooting percentage, not the number of attempts. “When you shoot from the outside, you don’t get to the line nearly as much,” she said. Raelyn Freitag had three 3pointers and 12 total points to lead the Tigers, who host Myrtle Point on Tuesday. Hailey Iverson added nine points in her second game back from a summer knee injury.

southern part of the state. Early proposals by the committee included going to a regional format for both cross country and track and field, but ultimately, the committee chose to leave those sports unchanged. The dance competition changes from a four-day event to a two-day event, with teams competing just one day, unlike the past. Cheerleading will not be split into two sessions, instead being a single long session encompassing all classifications. In football, Class 1A will be changed to four special districts,

Powers will be grouped with the same nine teams that have been in the Mountain Skyline League along with three dropping down from Class 2A — Glendale, Chiloquin and Days Creek — to form a 12team district. The entire proposal, which also includes allocations of playoff spots for the Class 3A and Class 2A leagues in team sports, can be viewed at

Tyler Tresh had a team-high 11 points. But it didn’t matter, they couldn’t stop the Myrtle Points trio. “At the end they were just a little too much for us,” Reedsport head coach Dan Kenagy said. “Those three seniors they got. They’ve all got a different skill set but they’re all good at what they do. I’m impressed watching them.” The loss has Reedsport sitting with a 1-11 overall record and 0-3 in conference. With the win, Myrtle Point sits in the driver seat of the Class 2A portion of the

hybrid Sunset Conference with a 3-0 record (10-2 overall). The Bobcats have wins over both Gold Beach and Reedsport, the two teams they are battling for the league’s two spots in the special district playoffs. A game like Friday’s gives their coach a reason to be optimistic. “The one thing about these kids, no matter how bad they play they’re still seem to pull out the win.” Larsen said. The Braves will host Oakridge today while Myrtle Point will visit Bandon on Tuesday in a battle for first place in the league standings.

GIRLS From Page B1 The first quarter was a struggle, but Doane said she just needed to get comfortable. “I started getting into my game. I was really nervous,” Doane said. “I’m not scared to foul or get hurt or anything. It’s my last year so I put it all out there.” While Doane put her slow start on her nerves, her coach had a simple explanation. Beginning in the second quarter, Richardson changed up his offense from a spread zone to more of a high-low. The result was a lot more touches for Doane in the post, which helped the Braves mount a 12-point lead early in the fourth quarter.

another benefactor. Since Myrtle Point didn’t have the personnel to defend Doane, they keyed in on the guards on the perimeter. White scored seven points in the fourth on the way to 15 total. She knew she needed her team to settle down to pull away with the win. “We kind of got a little but frazzled there for a little bit,” White said. “We calmed down. Composure is a always a big thing for us.” The win puts Reedsport at 4-7 overall and 1-2 in league play. Myrtle Point is now 6-6 overall and 0-3 in league. The big-picture value of the win is that it gives the Braves a leg up on the Bobcats in the race for a spot in the Class 2A special district play-

tling Gold Beach for two spots in the playoffs and both earlier lost home games to the Panthers. The potential is there for Reedsport to have a solid season, but Richardson has an analogy for what his team’s potential is. “I compare this team to a young thoroughbred that’s in the gates — doesn’t really know what’s going on all the time yet, but there’s moments when they bust out and are completely devastating,” he said. Reedsport hosts Oakridge in a nonleague game today before returning to league play with another big game at Gold Beach on Tuesday. Myrtle Point will travel to Bandon on Tuesday.

NBA Durant scores 54 for Thunder From Page B1 Manu Ginobili had a season-high 29 points, and Boris Diaw and Marco Belinelli added 14 points each for the Spurs. Tim Duncan had 13 points and Tony Parker added 12, but the two combined for just eight points in the second half. “It was really intense,” Lillard said. “We both played physical. There were a lot of fouls called, but that was how we knew we were going to win the game. Just keep playing the same way and sticking with it.” San Antonio (31-9) still holds the West’s best record, but came in with something to prove. The Spurs are aware of the criticism that they can’t beat an elite team, having now gone 1-8 against the West’s remaining top-five teams and the East’s best, Indiana. “No, we don’t ignore anything,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “It’s like when we started the season the first thing we did was watch Game 6 in Miami (of the NBA Finals, which the Spurs lost in overtime). We look everything square in the eye and talk about what we need to do” The Spurs needed to control Aldridge and Lillard, but struggled to contain either. Portland was controlling the contest when Popovich was ejected with 7:18 left in the third quarter after drawing two technical fouls during a San Antonio timeout and the Trail Blazers leading 65-55. “We knew eventually they would find their way back into the game, especially after Pop got tossed,” Lillard said. “He looked like he wanted to get tossed because he just kept going off. I knew that that would spark something in their team. They got

some calls they made some shots.” Popovich began his rant a minute earlier when Diaw fell to the court defensively after taking a bump from Aldridge that Popovich thought was a foul. Official Mark Ayotte issued the first technical after Popovich was screaming and following him around. The technical only further incensed Popovich, who was attempting to push aside his assistants to reach Ayotte when official Bill Kennedy issued a second technical. The tirade sparked the fiery Ginobili, who scored 18 straight points to close the quarter and help San Antonio outscore Portland 33-12 following Popovich’s ejection. “I got in the game and I had two wide-open shots, both went in,” Ginobili said. “Things started to happen. They found me on a 3-point shot. I started to feel more confident and the whole situation was exciting. Things went our way in that third quarter.” Portland regained the lead at 88-87 on Aldridge’s 16foot jumper with 6:21 remaining. After the teams exchanged leads for a few minutes, Aldridge and Matthews proved unstoppable. Thunder 127, Warriors 121: Kevin Durant scored a career-high 54 points to help Oklahoma City beat the Golden State Warriors. Durant made 19 of 28 field goals and 11 of 13 free throws in his third straight game with at least 36 points. Stephen Curry had 37 points and 11 assists and Klay Thompson added 26 points for the Warriors, who shot 52 percent but simply couldn’t match up with Durant. Heat 101, 76ers 86: LeBron James had 21 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds, and the Heat snapped a three-game losing streak. Lakers 107, Celtics 104: Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo returned from a knee

injury and missed a 3-pointer that could have sent the game into overtime, sending the Lakers to the win. Pau Gasol had 24 points for Los Angeles. Kelly Olynyk scored a career-high 25 points for Boston. Rondo, who was limited to 20 minutes in his first game since tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament on Jan. 25, 2013, had eight points, four assists and two rebounds. Clippers 109, Knicks 95: Blake Griffin scored 32 points and the Clippers opened a seven-game road trip with their fifth straight victory. Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and 20 rebounds for the Knicks in a disappointing start to an eight-game homestand that matches the longest in franchise history. Jazz 110, Pistons 89: Trey Burke had 20 points and a career-high 12 assists in his return to Michigan, leading Utah to the victory. Burke, who was the national player of the year at Michigan last season and led the Wolverines to the Final Four, had plenty of supporters in the crowd at the Palace. Grizzlies 91, Kings 90: Mike Conley had 25 points and six assists for Memphis, and then grabbed possession of a jump ball in the final 2 seconds to help the Grizzlies secure their season-high fifth straight win. Mavericks 110, Suns 107: Rookie Shane Larkin scored a career-high 18 points for Dallas. Raptors 94, Minnesota 89: Kyle Lowry scored 24 points and the Raptors beat Minnesota. Cavaliers 117, Nuggets 109: Kyrie Irving scored 23 points for Cleveland. Wizards 96, Bulls 93: John Wall had 23 points and 11 assists, helping the Wizards reach .500 for the third time this season. Bobcats 111, Magic 101: Al Jefferson had 30 points and 16 rebounds for Charlotte.

Sports Players rush to avoid arbitration Bulldogs win swim meet THE WORLD NEW YORK (AP) — AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and major league home run champion Chris Davis reached rich deals as players and teams swapped proposed figures in salary arbitration. Ninety-one players reached agreements Friday, leaving 39 headed toward hearings next month in St. Petersburg, Fla., from among the 146 who filed for arbitration earlier in the week. Every case settled last year, the first time that happened since arbitration began in 1974. Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers reached a one-season deal for $15,525,000 that leaves him less than a year from free agency. Davis and the Baltimore Orioles agreed at $10.35 million. Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski said Friday the shortterm agreement doesn’t necessarily preclude a lengthier deal before

opening day. “We still have that desire,” he said. Also, NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed their $215 million, seven-year contract, a record for a pitcher and at $30.7 million the highest average salary in baseball history. Kershaw gets an $18 million signing bonus, payable in $6 million installments this April 15, July 15 and Sept. 15. He receives salaries of $4 million this year, $30 million next year, $32 million in 2016, $33 million in each of the next two seasons, $32 million in 2019 and $33 million in 2020. Tampa Bay left-hander David Price got a big deal Thursday, a $14 million, one-year contract. New Oakland closer Jim Johnson, acquired from Baltimore last month, agreed to a $10 million, one-year deal with the Athletics,

who also struck a $2.3 million deal with catcher John Jaso. Johnson’s 50 saves tied for the big league lead last year, when he was 3-8 with a 2.94 ERA. Others who agreed Thursday included Philadelphia right-hander Kyle Kendrick ($7,675,000), Mets first baseman Ike Davis ($3.5 million), Colorado right-hander Wilton Lopez ($2.2 million), Cincinnati outfielder Chris Heisey ($1.76 million) and Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli ($700,000). Among the players still in arbitration, Cleveland pitcher Justin Masterson asked for the most at $11.8 million, with the Indians offering $8.05 million. The $3.75 million gap is the largest among the pending cases. Cincinnati pitcher Homer Bailey had the second-highest request at $11.6 million, with the Reds offering $8.7 million.

North Bend’s girls dominated the four-school Taft Invitational swim meet on Thursday. The Bulldogs won all but two of the events while scoring 161 points, more than double the total of runner-up Newport. The Bulldogs swept the three relays, and had the top two teams in the 200-meter freestyle relay. In the individual events, Alyssa Bennett won the 200 individual medley and 100 butterfly. Cassie Dallas won the 200 freestyle and finished second to Bennett in the butterfly. Liliana Bennett won the 400 freestyle and was second to Dallas in the 200 freestyle. Caitlin Hyde won the 100 breaststroke and Madysen Hannah won the 100 freestyle. Jordyn Johnson was second in two events. North Bend’s boys finished third

behind Newport and Gladstone. Karl Stuntzner-Gibson won the 200 individual medley and 400 freestyle for the Bulldogs. Amedee Kirkpatrick won the 100 butterfly. Rumbaugh Invitational: Marshfield’s Shaylynn Brownell won the 100-yard breaststroke in the huge meet at Corvallis last weekend, the best result for the Pirates. Brownell also placed third in the 200 freestyle. Teammates Bridget McCarthy, Kayla Sparkman, Elyse Trendell and Alyssa Hedgpeth also had top-10 finishes in individual events. Spencer Fromm had the best individual finish for Marshfield’s boys, placing 11th in the 500 freestyle. Marshfield’s girls finished fifth in the 15-team meet, which includes many of the state’s better teams.

Sports Caldwell adds Austin, Sheridan to Lions staff ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell is turning to a familiar face to become his defensive coordinator. The Lions have hired Teryl Austin, who spent the past three seasons as the defensive backs coach in Baltimore where Caldwell was an assistant before he left this week to take over in Detroit. The Lions also said Friday that they have hired Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan as linebackers coach. Before working with the Ravens,Austin was a defensive backs coach with the Arizona Cardinals (2007-09) and Seattle Seahawks (200305).

Jets’ Smith leaves plane after argument NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith left his flight at Los Angeles International Airport after getting into an argument with an attendant. Smith was on a Virgin America flight from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Friday when an attendant asked Smith to remove his headphones and an argument ensued, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no official report was filed to or by the airport. The person said Smith, who just finished his rookie season with the Jets, got up and asked to speak to a supervisor before leaving the plane on his own and speaking with police at the gate before leaving.

Browns’ Bess charged with officer assault MIAMI (AP) — Cleveland Browns and former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Davone Bess was arrested Friday on charges of assaulting a law enforcement officer at an airport, the latest in a series of personal problems for the NFL player. Sheriff’s office records show that Bess is charged with simple assault on an officer, resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct. It was not immediately clear whether Bess had a lawyer. Browns spokesman Zak Gilbert said the team was aware of the arrest and was gathering information. Bess was released Friday morning on $100 bail. The three charges are all misdemeanors.

Patriots, Broncos overcame plenty of obstacles ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Embarrassing headlines. Sidelined superstars. Retooled offenses. Shredded defenses. It’s a wonder the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos made it this far. Bill Belichick’s smarts and Tom Brady’s tenacity always seems to trump tribulation. This season, they brushed aside the Tim Tebow distraction and overcame Aaron Hernandez’s arrest and the losses of Rob Gronkowski,Wes Welker, Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo to put the Patriots (13-4) into the AFC championship for the third straight year. “I’m sure every team is probably at this point overcome a lot,” Brady said. “I know Denver has done a lot of those things, too. They’ve overcome a lot of things and injuries and so forth. It’s just part of the NFL football season. “To get out there and play 16 weeks and really see where you stand at the end of those 16 weeks, getting to the playoffs, play the best teams and see if you can advance.It’s certainly not easy to do. It’s very challenging.”

Nobody does it better than Brady and Belichick, the best quarterback/coach combo in history with a record 18 playoff wins. After last year’s stumble against Baltimore in the playoffs, John Fox and Peyton Manning also steered the Broncos (14-3) through a minefield to send Denver to its first conference championship in eight years. “That shock of what happened against the Ravens contributed to this team being able to be as flexible as it has been and survive the adversity that it’s gone through,” said Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway, who led the Broncos to back-to-back Super Bowls in the late 1990s and now leads them from the front office instead of the huddle. After losing Elvis Dumervil in the infamous fax fiasco when his renegotiated contract didn’t reach team headquarters in time, Elway hit the jackpot in free agency by signing Welker and Louis Vasquez on offense and Shaun Phillips, Terrance Knighton and Dominique RodgersCromartie on defense. They helped the Broncos

Fox overcame his own heart operation that sidelined him for a month and even a player quitting on him at midseason, and Manning set a slew of records, including throwing for 55 TDs and 5,447 yards, to help the Broncos become the first 600-point team in league

history. The Broncos did it despite losing exceptional blindside protector Ryan Clady in Week 2 and being anchored by a converted guard who hadn’t played a full season at center in 14 years. So, Manning sits just one win shy of returning to the Super Bowl just two years after he was jettisoned by the Indianapolis Colts following four neck surgeries that strengthened his resolve but weakened his throwing arm. “You don’t take it for grant-

ed,” Manning said, “especially when you’ve been through an injury, been through a major change and you’re in the home stretch of your career.” Both the Patriots and Broncos have quarterbacks known as grinders, who elevate the play of those around them because of their meticulous preparation. The head coaches have very different reputations. Belichick is known as a mostly dour mad genius — even Manning called him “the best coach that I’ve ever competed against,” and Brady has high praise for the tone he sets. “We’re challenged here on a daily basis by Coach Belichick to show up, do the right thing, always put the team first and I think that’s what this team has always been about,” Brady said. Fox is the ultimate player’s coach whose bounce-off-thewalls energy and enthusiasm were very much needed after Josh McDaniels’ troubled tenure — and Elway suggested those qualities only increased after he had his aortic valve repaired in November. “He’s got more energy than anybody I’ve ever seen,”

Elway said. “That, to me, is the definition of John Fox: the energy level that he brings. He brings it to the practice field, and it’s contagious. I think that’s why he was a perfect fit for us.” Rod Smith, who helped the Broncos win back-to-back titles in the late 1990s and will serve as their honorary captain Sunday, said he’s not surprised these are the two AFC teams left standing, battered though they may be, rendering this game in many ways a skirmish among subs. “Honestly, you have two of the best organizations in football,” Smith said. “You have to give it up to Mr. (Robert) Kraft and you have to give it up to Mr. (Pat) Bowlen.” The Patriots lose players left and right, but with Belichick they’re always playing for trophies. Elway has the Broncos doing the same thing again. “Everybody thought it was a huge, horrible, financial disaster gamble with Peyton Manning,” Smith said. “And he’s got those 92 touchdowns in two years. ... So, the organization has done a masterful job.”

Australian Open

Sharapova, Federer advance; Wozniaki out MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Maria Sharapova recovered from the longest, hottest match of her career to beat Alize Cornet 6-1, 7-6 (6) Saturday and reach the fourth round of the Australian Open. Sharapova’s boyfriend, Grigor Dimitrov, progressed to the second week at a major for the first time when he converted his fifth match point to beat No. 11-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 76 (10). The 22-year-old Bulgarian, considered one of the up-andcoming players on the men’s tour,is starting to live up to expectations. Federer, a 17-time Grand Slam

winner, told a news conference after his 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 win over Teymuraz Gabashvili that everyone in the locker room was watching the Dimitrov-Raonic match. Dimitrov will next play Roberto Bautista Agut, who followed his upset second-round win over No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 third-round win over No. 27 Benoit Paire. Three-time finalist Andy Murray reached the fourth round for the sixth straight year with a 76 (2), 6-4, 6-2 win over No. 26seeded Feliciano Lopez. The Wimbledon champion next faces Stefane Robert, a lucky loser

from qualifying, who is into the fourth round for the first time after beating Martin Klizan. Sharapova’s third-round match was played in high humidity but in temperatures of about 72 degrees, considerably cooler than the scorching 108 degrees conditions she endured for 3 hours, 28 minutes in her second-round win over Karin Knapp two days previously. Sharapova will next play Dominika Cibulkova, who beat No. 16 Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-0 in 59 minutes. Suarez Navarro was clearly still fatigued from her second-round match in the extreme heat.

Former No. 1-ranked Jelena Jankovic had a 6-4,7-5 win over Kurumi Nara, to set up a fourthround match against No. 11 Simona Halep. Fifth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska had a 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 over No. 29 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and will next play Garbine Muguruza of Spain, who beat former No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki 4-6, 7-5, 6-3. No. 13 Sloane Stephens, who upset Serena Williams in the quarterfinals here last year, reached the fourth round at a fifth consecutive major with a 7-5, 6-4 win over Elina Svitolina.

Coach with ‘sole’ helps millions worldwide BY PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Ron Hunter knows he’ll be hurting after Georgia State’s next game. That’s just the way it is when you stomp around on a hard, wooden floor in your bare feet for the better part of two hours. “I’m very animated on the sideline, and I’m not about to change how I coach,” says Hunter, in his third year running the men’s basketball program at Georgia State.“But it’s tough. It really is. ... Those 48 hours afterward are very, very taxing.” Yet he relishes the pain. You see, in the ever-discouraging world of college athletics, where doing the right thing is generally overruled by whatever it takes to make money and win games, there’s a glimmer of hope coming from this campus in downtown Atlanta. The 49-year-old Hunter will work the sidelines Saturday sans shoes to draw attention to his real passion — providing footwear to millions of poor children around the world. He’s already collected some 6 million pairs through the group Samaritan’s Feet, and

personally delivered many of them on eye-opening trips to Third World countries, journeys that left him drained emotionally but inspired him to keep doing more. “I love coaching. I really do,” Hunter says. “But the fulfillment I get from a child not only receiving hope from a pair of shoes,but knowing that pair of shoes may be passed down to a sibling someday, that’s so much bigger.” How sad there aren’t more Ron Hunters among the coaching ranks, actually fulfilling their supposed duty to turn boys into men. While Hunter sends a very visible message when he dumps his stylish footwear for one game each season, an event he calls “Barefoot for Bare Feet,” the more important work is done during the offseason. Since adopting the cause seven years ago, he has taken his players to villages in Africa and South America, places where poverty’s stranglehold on society is beyond comprehension to most Americans, even those who grew up in neighborhoods that are considered poor by this country’s standards. Rest assured, that has worn off on his players,one of whom happens to be his son R.J., the

Back when the elder Hunter was still coaching at IUPUI in Indianapolis and his son was just entering high school, the two went on their first humanitarian trip to Peru. There was a moment that still stands out to the father, which

made him prouder than anything his son will ever do on a basketball court — even the game-winning shot R.J. hit Thursday night to beat Arkansas State, giving the Panthers’ their eighth straight victory and extending their perfect start in the Sun Belt

Conference. “We ran out of shoes,” Hunter recalls. “Right then, a mother with a child ran up to the bus as we were pulling away. My son felt so bad for them, he took the shoes off his feet and the socks off his feet and gave them to the mother.” Now a college sophomore, R.J. still carries the lessons of that day. In a sport where the large shoe companies have huge influence and kids line up to pay hundreds of dollars for the latest sneaker hawked by their favorite player, that perspective is especially important. “As players, we get a new pair of shoes almost every week. It’s easy to feel like you’re owed that,” R.J. says. “But I know what a blessing it is to have shoes.” The coach can’t stop thinking about all those children he hasn’t been able to help. At every stop, the shoes eventually run out, but the line of barefooted kids never does. “There’s too many children we can’t help,” he says, the enthusiasm in his voice turning to sadness.“I don’t know if we’re even making a dent in it. But at least we’re doing something.” While Hunter is more than halfway to his initial goal, to

collect 10 million shoes in 10 years, he now knows this project can’t be measured with a calendar. It’s become his life’s work. Sure, there are important games to play this season,with Georgia State looking like a contender to reach the NCAA tournament for just the third time in school history. But Hunter’s mind keeps drifting to plans to take his team to Costa Rica this summer on another mission of podiatric mercy. “Just talking about it,” he says, “I can’t wait to go back.” If you’re inclined to help with the cause, check out Samaritan’s Feet at If you’re going to be in Atlanta on Saturday, stop by the GSU Sports Arena — and bring along a pair of shoes or a monetary donation.For a mere $10, the organization can get shoes to a child in need. As for that guy on the sideline, he’ll be coaching like he always does. Then he’ll head home to soak his feet. “It hurts, but I’m glad it hurts,” Hunter says.“If a child can go without shoes for five, six, seven years, I can surely go without shoes for two hours.”

Top-ranked Arizona yet to suffer letdown TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona ran through its 201213 non-conference season undefeated, only to stumble once Pac-12 play started. The Wildcats won all 13 of their non-conference games this season, but have yet to suffer a letdown. If anything, they may be getting better as the season goes along, which could be bad news for the rest of the teams in the Pac-12. “I feel we have a confident team, but in a good way,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said. “A lot of players who were part of a big winning streak last year saw how quickly it can leave you if you don’t continue to work hard and get better. I believe the mission of this year’s team is to try to be a team that really practices and shows up. Leave one game behind and quickly move to the next. So far, so good.” So far, Arizona (18-0, 5-0 Pac-12) has been superb. Long, athletic and versatile, the Wildcats are one of the nation’s best defensive teams, ranking among the top 15 in scoring, field goal percentage and 3-point shooting. Arizona has a plethora of scoring options, with a tough-to-stop combination of players who can score at the rim, off the dribble and from the perimeter. The Wildcats also like being the team everyone wants to beat. Since moving atop The Associated Press poll six weeks ago, Arizona has embraced being No. 1, using the perch as dare-you-toknock-us-off motivation. “This is our dream; we’re living our dream right now,” junior guard Nick Johnson said. “Being the No. 1 team in the country and having a target on our backs, it’s a challenge we love, and we have to keep working to get better.” Arizona has done a pretty good job of that already. Since finishing off a 27game non-conference winning streak with a rout of Northern Arizona on Dec. 23, the Wildcats have been unstoppable in the Pac-12. Arizona opened with a record-setting win over Washington State, setting McKale Center records for fewest points allowed (25), fewest field goals (nine) and shooting percentage (20). The Wildcats earned a hard-fought win over Washington, then pulled out a tough road win over UCLA and blew past Southern California. Arizona’s latest victory may have been its best. Facing their biggest rivals,

the Wildcats jumped on Arizona State almost from the opening tip, racing out to a 21-point lead in the first half and cruising to a 91-68 victory. Arizona showed off its offensive versatility by placing seven players in double figures for the first time since 2004 and held the Sun Devils to a season-low 34 percent shooting. “They’re a great team,” said Arizona State center Jordan Bachynski, who missed all three of his shots and scored three points against Arizona’s athletic front line. “It’s a tough loss and I hate to lose to them. They’re just a really good team with great size. There’s a reason Arizona is No. 1.” Arizona has the makeup to stay there for a while, too. On the physical side, the Wildcats are big, athletic and versatile. Kaleb Tarczewski, Arizona’s 7-foot center, has made huge strides on both ends of the court and 6-8 forward Brandon Ashley has become a nightmare matchup by becoming a better perimeter shooter. Johnson has developed into one of the nation’s most explosive shooting guards and Gabe York has become Arizona’s go-to outside shooter. T.J. McConnell, who sat out last season after transferring from Duquesne, has been the perfect orchestrator with his pass-first mentality and ability to jump into passing lanes for steals. Freshmen Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson also have been big contributors, particularly on the defensive end, where they play with an intelligence and ability beyond their years. Tying it all together is a lunch-pail mentality. The Wildcats are the nation’s No. 1 team, but work like a team that’s still trying to get there. Johnson and McConnell have been the unquestioned leaders, but Arizona also has benefited from the maturity of Gordon and Hollis-Jefferson, who have taken nothing for granted despite coming in as heralded recruits. “One of the many things this team has done well is at times like this we’ve tried to stay focused on the process,” Miller said. “Everything behind us is behind us, whether we won or lost. It’s a matter of how much better can we get in this week off leading to Colorado. It’s something we talked a lot about and our team has been responsible doing it.” As Miller said, it’s been working so far.

Julia Mancuso is not afraid to say it: her entire season will be defined by the Sochi Olympics. And for a skier who has always thrived at the games, that suits her just fine.

Mancuso focused on Sochi CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) — Julia Mancuso is not afraid to say it: her entire season will be defined by the Sochi Olympics. And for a skier who has always thrived at the games, that suits her just fine. “I have three weeks now until the Olympics and I still have my goals set on Sochi,” Mancuso said in snowy Cortina, where an ongoing blizzard forced Friday’s World Cup downhill training to be canceled. “So every race week now is just a building block to that and obviously the World Cup is not much of a focus for me anymore,” the Californian added. “It’s more training for the Olympics, because of how it started. But every race is a really great opportunity.” Mancuso’s World Cup season has not been one to remember so far. Her best result was 12th in a giant slalom in St. Moritz, Switzerland, last month. Her only other top-15 finish was 13th in a downhill in Altenmarkt, Austria, last weekend. But Mancuso has been in this situation before. She was also in a slump entering the 2010 Vancouver Games

— and came away with two silver medals. And at the 2006 Turin Games, she won gold in giant slalom before ever winning a World Cup race. Thus her Olympic record tops that of longtime teammate Lindsey Vonn, who is injured and will miss Sochi. “The Olympics are just so special for me, because I just never knew about the World Cup when I was growing up,” said Mancuso, who is from Squaw Valley, Calif. — site of the 1960 Winter Games. “I only knew about the Olympics and I passed the Olympic rings every day on my way to school and I just grew up in a place where the Olympics really are a legacy and I always had that dream,” Mancuso added. “So I’ve just been thinking about that ever since I was a little kid. And now going into my fourth Olympics I’m just really grateful for all the good experiences I had.” As a 17-year-old, Mancuso finished 13th in the combined at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games to open her Olympic career. In March, Mancuso will turn 30. “It’s always a big deal when you’re

a kid and you didn’t really know that the World Cup was actually a tour and that you would be traveling around the world going from stop to stop,” Mancuso said, as she took in the view of the resort known as the “queen of the Italian Dolomites.” “I guess I always dreamt of winning and skiing for my job but I never knew it would take me this far,” Mancuso added. “And here I am turning 30 this year. So it’s been a really long journey and it’s been a lot of fun and I’m just so thankful to go to all these amazing places. ... It’s really just been an awesome ride.” Still, Mancuso has not won a race since a parallel slalom in Moscow two years ago and she’s been constantly tinkering with her equipment to find a better feel. Over a recent break back home, she decided to stop experimenting. “I had to make a decision of what I was going to ski on and really just go from there and not be questioning anything anymore, because there’s no time for that,” Mancuso said. “What I have is the best thing that I’m going to be on right now and I’m just going to go for it.”

Shaun White earns snowboarding bid MAMMOTH LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Shaun White skipped the Friday morning Olympic snowboarding qualifier to get some needed rest, a calculated risk considering the twotime Olympic gold medalist still wasn’t assured of a spot in Sochi for his signature event. Two thrilling trips down Mammoth Mountain later in the afternoon all but solved that problem. Oh, and they sent a message too. The sport’s greatest ever is still on top of his game. Soaring through the California air looking very much like someone intent on making history, White dominated the afternoon session, posting a score of 98.6 to move closer to one of the four spots on the U.S. Olympic halfpipe team. Even better, he did it while landing the latest wrinkle in his ever-

expanding repertoire. White nailed a frontside doublecork 1440 in competition for the first time during his second run, a trick he spent the run-up to Sochi obsessing over. The payoff came in the middle of his run as he packed four full twists and two flips inside in one physics-defying leap. Scotty Lago, who won bronze behind White in Vancouver in 2010, thrust himself back into the mix for Sochi by finishing second. Taylor Gold wrapped up his seat in Sochi by finishing third. The U.S. is so stacked in the halfpipe making the Olympic team could be even more difficult than reaching the podium in Russia. Kelly Clark, who took gold in Salt Lake City in 2002, remained perfect by sweeping both women’s events on Friday. 2006 Olympic champion and

2010 silver medalist Hannah Teter bolstered her bid by finishing third and now has two straight top-four finishes.

Logan leads skiiers PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Only a handful of athletes can master both slopestyle and halfpipe skiing at a world-class level. Devin Logan headlines that select group. Logan isn’t satisfied with simply competing at an elite level in two different events. She wants a shot at a gold medal in both events at the Sochi Olympics. Logan took a step closer to realizing that dream with a victory in the slopestyle final at the U.S. Grand Prix on Friday. The 2011 U.S. halfpipe champion clinched one of three automatic berths after scoring 87.40 points on her first run.

Oregon Seafoods expands product line COOS BAY — Oregon Seafoods is expanding its lineup of soups, curries and locally caught fish by subtracting one element: dairy. The seafood processor, which manufactures the Sea Fare Pacific brand, has plans to add dairy-free alternatives to its line of GMO-free, locally caught soups, curries and all-fish fillets after hearing from grocers and consumers. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to raise money via pledges to fund two new heat-and-serve, gluten-free and lactosefree soups; a tasty clam chowder; and a creamy pink shrimp bisque, currently not offered anywhere. The campaign has 30 days left to reach its goal of $50,750 for product development and testing, packaging, production and promotion. Oregon Seafoods is located at 732 S. Second St. in Coos Bay.

Davis Nixon and Jose Ponce walk on the dry shores of Minnequa Lake in Pueblo, Colo., in April 2013. Federal officials have designated portions of 11 drought-ridden western and central states as primary natural disaster areas, highlighting the financial strain the lack of rain is likely to bring to farmers in those regions.

Drought prompts disaster declarations in 11 states LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal officials have designated portions of 11 drought-ridden western and central states as primary natural disaster areas, highlighting the financial strain the lack of rain is likely to bring to farmers in those regions. The announcement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday included counties in Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Kansas, Texas, Utah, Arkansas, Hawaii, Idaho, Oklahoma and California. The designation means eligible farmers can qualify for low-interest emergency loans from the department. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said he and President Obama want to ensure that agriculture remains a bright spot in the nation’s economy. “USDA stands with you and your communities when severe weather and natural disasters threaten to disrupt your livelihood.” he said in statement. Counties adjacent to those affected also are eligible for assistance. While storms have dumped rain and snow in the East, droughts are persisting or intensifying in the West, according to officials connected with the U.S. Drought Monitor, an index on which the USDA’s declarations are based. A ridge of high pres-

sure is to blame for keeping storms off the Pacific coast and guiding them to the East. “What we’re seeing meteorologically is a blocking pattern that is deflecting all the storms,” said Brian Fuchs, a climatologist with the Lincoln, Neb.-based National Drought Mitigation Center. “There really hasn’t been a lot of indication that this pattern is breaking down.” Poor snowpack is threatening regions dependent on major western rivers, and no amount of wet winter weather in the East can ease the pain, officials said. “Once you cross the Rockies, nothing on the East is going to help you,” Fuchs said. The dry weather could mean an active fire season. Southern California had an early taste of that with a blaze that started Thursday morning in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and forced nearly 2,000 people to evacuate. At least two homes were burned. Three men were arrested on suspicious of recklessly starting a fire. They’re accused of tossing paper into a campfire in the dangerously windy and dry conditions. “We don’t say the drought causes the fires,” Fuchs said. “But when you have fire season and drought, you’ll see more fire.”

Q: Is my small business required to hold regular safety meetings? A: All employers are required to comply with the Occupational Safety and DOWN TO Health Act of 1970 and provide “a workplace free from recognized hazards that are causing, or are ARLENE likely to SOTO cause, death or serious physical harm to your employees regardless of the size of your business. You must comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards and regulations under the OSH Act. You must also be familiar with those OSHA standards and regulations that apply to your workplace and make copies of them available to employees upon request.” Information about compliance is available online at The requirement to provide regular safety meetings is defined in the Oregon OSHA’s Quick Guide to Safety Committees and Safety Meetings which states, “If you’re an employer in Oregon, your business must have a safety committee or hold safety meetings unless you’re a sole owner and only employee of a corporation.” The size of a safety committee and documentation of safety meetings are outlined in the Oregon OSHA guide. A safe work environment is good for business. Employers who invest in employee safety find they save significant dollars by lowering costs for worker’s compensation, lowering costs of compliance issues, increasing productivity and even creating higher employee morale. Begin this process by learning which health and safety issues are part of your work environment. OSHA can help with a variety of resources including educational tools, consultation on compliance issues and informative publications. According to OSHA there are five elements every safety program should have: “management leadership and employee participation, workplace analysis, hazard prevention and control, safety and health training and education, and program evaluation.” Safety programs need to be designed specifically for your work environment. An office setting has much different safety training needs than a construction site or manufacturing floor. Workplace safety starts with a partnership between management and employees. A worksite safety analysis will help identify any current issues or future safety concerns. Workplace safety policies and procedures will define how management and employees are to behave to maintain a safe work environment. Safety meetings are a part of the communications process between employers and employees. Arlene M. Soto is the director of the SWOCC Small Business Development Center, She can be reached at 541-7566445,, or at 2455 Maple Leaf, North Bend, OR 97459.

Right at Home: Personal libraries are retreats BY KIM COOK The Associated Press With the advent of tablets, cellphones and ereaders, could the book-lined home library go the way of the formal dining room? Not a chance, designers and retailers say. Digital and print books can co-exist, says House Beautiful’s editor in chief Newell Turner. “When there’s an endless river of (digital) content, the words, text and images we choose to print and bind into a physical book will make (it) even more special,” he said. And books, in their variety of shapes and sizes, can be art in their own right, he says. Certainly, many people display richly illustrated coffee table books. And at Hearst’s October 2013 Designer Visions show house in New York, Jamie Drake took the books-as-art notion literally: For his House Beautiful apartment, he turned large books spine sides in and stacked them geometrically in wall recesses to flank a fireplace as sculptural art. “Books are precious and beautiful, both their contents and materials. I was inspired to provoke thoughts, placing the bulk of the spines away from the viewer, thus highlighting the thousands of paper pages and creating a sense of desire to discover what lies within,” he says. For Elle Decor at the show house, Alessandra Branca

wonderful feel of sitting curled up with a book, or the happenstance of discovering a book on the shelf that you haven’t seen for a while, particularly books on art, architecture or design,” she say. “I think we’ll always love the physical aspect of a book in hand, but I’ve found I buy more and more of my new fiction online.” New York interior designer Elaine Griffin sees the role of home libraries changing. “We’ve come a long way from the English country home-inspired libraries of the ‘80s — those spaces that looked like Carson (the butler on “Downton Abbey”) might come in at any moment to do a little dusting,” Griffin says. “Today’s home libraries are retreats, actually — places to retreat as an individual from the more chaotic, groupthemed spaces of the rest of the house.”

Gardening small? Many fruits grow in containers BY DEAN FOSDICK The Associated Press Many fruit growers are going to pots, and small wonder. Containers are great for tight spaces, easy to manage, convenient for harvesting, and provide better soil than is found in most gardens. “They also allow growing more experimental fruits, such as warm climate or tropical ones, if pots can be moved inside in winter,”’ said Leonard Perry, an extension professor with the University of Vermont. Everything from blueberries to persimmons, citrus to currents can be grown in containers. And don’t forget that old standby, the clay strawberry pot. Some potted fruits, though, may surprise. “Pineapples are one of the easiest warm-climates fruits to grow in pots,” Perry said. “There are even some grapes suited for containers.” Potting fruit does pose challenges different from those encountered when growing fruit in the ground. Some things to consider:

■ Pot size: You can get by with smaller containers and less re-potting if you choose wisely. It all depends on the plant. “You may need to re-pot every three to five years, trimming off some of the older roots, to keep plants vigorous,” Perry said. “Blueberries are one of the best choices for containers. Look for one of the newer cultivars bred for containers — a half-high or low bush. These can be grown in pots a foot or so wide. For dwarf fruit trees, use plastic containers or a whiskey barrel half, 18 to 24 inches wide,” he said. “Casters on the bottom make containers easier to move about a patio, or inside in winter in colder climates.” ■ W a t e ri n g : Plants in containers dry out more quickly than those in the ground, and need more frequent watering. ■ Fertilizing: It’s safe to wait a few weeks before fertilizing since most container soils include fertilizers. Water-soluble, slow-release fertilizers generally work best. Their small capsules

gradually dissolve when watered, adding nutrients to the plant mix. ■ Soil types: “Pots create different drainage and air properties than soils, so don’t use straight garden soil for fruit in pots,” Perry said. “Use half-bagged topsoil or potting soil, with half organic matter such as peat moss or compost. Leave a couple of inches free on the top for adding fresh compost each spring.” ■ Longevity and yields: You naturally sacrifice yields by growing in small pots, said Elmer Kidd, chief production officer for Stark Bro’s Nurseries & Orchards Co. in Louisiana, Mo. Nutrition and watering are far more important with containerized plants. “For those who want to participate in the gardening realm by growing in pots, their The Associated Press efforts can be respectable if Biueberries are easy to grow and convenient to harvest when placed in containers. The pots can be moved to their level of care is good,” follow the sun or taken indoors to help the fruit survive extreme cold. Kidd said.

Readers add their two cents Tips on saving money With an HVAC system Another six months have passed, gang, and it’s time for a new edition of the HouseWorks Follow-up Files:

Right or wrong When I answered a reader question about the “right” way to position an electrical outlet (there is no building codes rule about it), I heard from several readers who took issue with my personal choice. I said I preferred the grounding hole to go down, perhaps, as one reader suggested, because it makes the outlet look something like a face, which would be familiar. I confess I’d never considered that. I also had never considered the reason cited by all the complainers: If the ground is down, it would allow something metallic to fall behind the cover plate and short the outlet. Apparently, that’s exactly what happened to each and every one of the writers. But for the life of me, I can’t figure out how they managed it.

More on mowers After offering a step-bystep on sharpening lawnmower blades last summer, I heard from readers who felt I’d glossed over a couple of pertinent steps. One said my recommendation to disconnect the spark plug wire didn’t go far enough in ensuring safety. Remove the plug entirely, he said. Another pointed out it would be a good idea to drain the gas tank before turning the mower on its side to get at the blade. Sigh. It’s a wonder mower owners ever work on their own machines. In fact, it goes a long way toward explaining why a lot of mower guides begin with: Take the blade to a sharpening shop. Me? Perhaps it’s why I’ve been using electric mowers since 1974.

The “in” color for 2014, according to Debbie Zimmer, paint and color expert for the Paint Quality Institute, is grey.

Apparently it’s only the British version. I’m not sure whether that’s true of plain old American gray.


Electrical mapping I explained a while back how I “mapped” the electrical circuits in my house. I first plugged a long drop cord into each outlet or adapter in a light fixture, then snaked it down to the basement and plugged in a utility light. By simply flipping breakers on and off, I quickly found which circuit served which device. Several readers suggested instead using a radio turned up loud. I’m sure that would work fine — but I can’t recall the last time I saw a corded radio, and it seems awfully noisy. Frankly, I don’t see its advantage over a simple light bulb. Others thought actually drawing a labeled floor plan seemed like a lot of trouble and suggested it made more sense to note which circuit served which outlet by marking their numbers on the backs of the cover plates.

One even suggested using a label maker. Really? That’s easier than a couple of sheets of typing (NAPSI)-There’s good paper?

Myriad of uses for prescription bottles Dear Mary, Do you know where I can donate empty plastic prescription bottles? It seems such a waste to throw them away. — Susan H., Tenn. Dear Susan, Call your local veterinarian. Most vets are more than happy to receive cleaned prescription bottles with labels removed for dispensing medicines for anim a l s . Humane EVERYDAY societies CHEAPSKATE n e e d bottles to s e n d medicat i o n s h o m e w i t h newly a d o p te d pets, too. Me d i ca l Mary missionHunt a r i e s doing outreach work in poor countries can always use prescription bottles to dispense the medications that come in large quantities. Check with your pharmacist or church to locate a collection program in your area. These little plastic bottles are great for storing sewing machine needles, pins and buttons, or small makeup brushes and change for the laundromat and tollbooths. They are the perfect size to hold salad dressing in a packed lunch. They are great for keeping hooks and other items in a tackle box. Prescription bottles are ideal for storing small beads, garden seeds and pushpins, or for carrying aspirin and storing mixed paints for craft and ceramic projects, too. Dear Mary, I learn so much from your column. What can you tell me about the safety of cooking bags? I love them and find them effective. So, is there any danger of toxicity? — Janet V., Calif. Dear Janet, There’s been a lot of inaccurate information floating around the Internet that microwave cooking in plastic wrap and cooking bags poses a health concern. But food scientist Dr. Jean Weese (Alabama Cooperative Extension) says that information has been proven to be completely untrue. She advises that cooking food in microwaves with plastic wrap, in microwavable plastic containers and in cooking bags that have been manufactured for that purpose is extremely safe. Dr. Weese says we should avoid using plastic storage containers like margarine tubs, takeout containers and other one-time use containers because they can melt or warp, possibly causing chemicals to migrate into the food. Dear Mary, We have a 17year-old set of Encyclopedia Britannica that I am desperate to get rid of. But my husband hates to just throw these books out. We are hoping you can advise us. Thanks. — Rosie H., Idaho Dear Rosie, The Salvation Army will pick up your encyclopedias. Either call the number you find in your local directory or go to Some Goodwill outlets,, will also be happy to have your encyclopedias, but you must bring them to a collection center, as Goodwill only picks up furniture and large items. When you itemize your tax return, the IRS allows you to deduct the fair market value of your donations, so be sure to get an IRS-approved tax receipt. The folks who publish Money for Your Used Clothing (available for purchase at tell me your set has a current market value of $2 to $10 depending on the condition. Mary invites questions at mary@everydaycheapskate.c om, or c/o Everyday Cheapskate, P.O. Box 2099, Cypress, CA 90630. This column will answer questions of general interest, but letters cannot be answered individually. Mary Hunt is the founder of, a personal finance member website and the author of “The Smart Woman’s Guide to Planning for Retirement,” released in 2013.

The Houses of Parliament in London are encouraging the development of bridge. In July, 12 pupils from Spaxton Primary School in Somerset, U.K., played a game of MiniBridge in the River Room, made available by the Lord Speaker of the House of Lords, The Rt. Hon. the Baroness D’Souza, CMG. The Lords and the Commons also hold an annual bridge match. Last year’s was won by the lower house, the Commons, and that leaves the series score at 21-18 in favor of the upper house. Today’s deal was chosen as the best-played of the day. It was declared by the Earl of Caithness,

who was in four spades. West led the diamond king. When East started a high-low with his 10, West cashed his diamond ace and persevered with the diamond queen. How did Caithness continue? North, Lady Blackstone, made a game-invitational limit raise of three spades. These days, in the tournament world, jump raises in competitive auctions are pre-emptive. North would have cue-bid three diamonds to show spade support and at least game-invitational values. If South ruffed the third diamond low in the dummy, East would overruff, and later declarer would lose a club to go down one. Alternatively, if he ruffed with dummy’s spade queen, that would promote a trump trick for the opponents if spades were breaking 3-1, also resulting in down one. Caithness saw the solution. At trick three, he discarded a club from the board — a textbook loser-on-loser play. Then, after drawing trumps, South ruffed his club loser in the dummy to take five spades, two hearts, two clubs and that ruff.

What is the cause of hot floorboards? Dear Tom and Ray: My 2002 Honda Odyssey (96,000 miles) has been a great car, other than having to replace the transmission at 60,000. When we take a road trip, we notice that after about two hours on the highway, the floor of the car just behind the front passenger seat gets hot — really hot! So hot that it is uncomfortable to keep shod feet on the carpet for more than a few minutes! The underside of the right, middle-row seat gets uncomfortably hot to the touch, too. We took the car in to our regular mechanic, who generally does a good job. He said that everything is fine as long as nothing is glowing under the car when it gets that hot. It’s hard to believe that this is not a fire risk! I’m not confident I would be able to see something glow in broad daylight. Do I listen to my mechanic, or do I cave to my safety-freak maternal instincts and take this in to the dealer for what is likely to be an overpriced repair bill, whether or not they fix the problem? What do you think is causing this? Many thanks. — Beth TOM: It sounds like the heat is coming from a catalytic converter, Beth.
