Allison Bassett sorts through props with her drama class students at Marshfield High School on Thursday. Bassett is leading the effort to restore the school’s black box theater.

Oh, the drama BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

COOS BAY — Marshfield High drama students and their teacher are breathing life into the run-down Drama Lab, and into the drama department itself. Allison Bassett, Marshfield High’s new performing arts teacher, is spearheading efforts to restore the school’s black box theater — known as the Drama Lab — a simple, nofrills room that allows the audience to focus solely on the actors and their performance. Bassett graduated from Marshfield in 2005 and was active in the school’s choir and drama programs. “When I was here, it looked the same as it does now, just minus the accumulation of stuff,” she said. “It was overwhelming for each teacher to tackle the project of clearing it out — it was just too much.” Marshfield senior Quentin Kirk has spent his entire high school career in choirs and plays. He’s a member of

concert choir, New Horizons and the Beachcombers quartet and played the Cowardly Lion in last year’s production of “The Wizard of Oz.” This year, he’ll play Lord Capulet in “The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet.” “It ... had the sense that there was a lot of unkemptness with it,” Kirk said of the Drama Lab. “There would be classes of students going through there for years, that if you left something there it would never actually be moved by another class. It just kept adding and adding and adding. There were bigger piles and things written on the walls and more and more layers of paint. Nothing was ever renovated.” Now that Bassett, her students and fellow teachers have started clearing out the lab and shop and organizing the room crammed full of costumes, the district needs to look at replacing the electric system, seats and equip-

ment. Bassett, who also has an interior design degree, has planned out the space and developed preliminary renderings of what the lab could look like. The goal is to reserve the auditorium for large productions, while the Drama Lab could be used for “smaller, more intimate shows.” “We don’t want to lose the building because we keep neglecting it,” she said. “I’m hoping it becomes a space for soloists to hold recitals instead of in the choir room or auditorium. It could be used for jazz band concerts. You could open it up and have concessions outside. It could be used as an art gallery. I also want to team up with the community and rent it out for events. “It becomes a community space instead of this little auto shop at the bottom of the hill that no one wants to look at.” What’s amazing, said Marshfield Principal Doug Holland, is how the entire school has rallied around the project. Teachers and students have donated time and labor to gut the Drama Lab and begin fixing it up. Holland said the project’s pace is surpassing everyone’s expectations.

Nearly 300 people are being laid off at the park —employees of the park and the concessionaire —as a result of the federal government shutdown.Park Superintendent Craig Ackerman said guests at Crater Lake Lodge and campgrounds were given 48 hours to leave. “I told our staff this morning,” he said. “Someone asked, ‘When could we expect to be called back?’ I said it could be hours, days or weeks.” Other National Park Service properties — such as Oregon Caves, John Day Fossil Beds and the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park— were also shut down.

Government Shutdown

GRANTS PASS — Nearly 300 people are being laid off at Crater Lake National Park — employees of the park and the concessionaire — as a result of the federal government shutdown. Park Superintendent Craig Ackerman said Tuesday that 10 park employees were still working: two snowplow drivers, law enforcement and emergency medical personnel, operators of the water treatment and sewage treatment plants, and a human resources staffer to oversee the layoffs. Otherwise the entrances to the park were barricaded, and guests at Crater Lake Lodge and campgrounds were given until Thursday to leave, he said. Film crews for a commercial and the movie “The Wild,” based on a memoir of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, were also shut out of the park.

SALEM — After a day of repeated delays, an Oregon committee legislative advanced a series of bills late Tuesday tackling changes to pensions, taxes and agricultural regulations. The final bill cleared the committee just after 11 p.m., setting the stage for votes in the full House and Senate on Wednesday, although more postponements are possible in a special session that’s been marked by delays. Gov. John Kitzhaber and senior legislators spent much of Monday and Tuesday ironing out details and lining up votes for a deal they say would deliver badly needed money for education and other services. The plan is projected to save millions of dollars in employee retirement costs for state and local governments and generate about $200 million in new revenue over the next two years. Most of the money would go to primary and secondary schools, but some would go

COOS BAY — Flu season could start this month, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although the illness tends to peak in January or February, folks might want to get the shot now to protect themselves against getting sick. It takes two weeks for the body to build up antibodies to ward off sickness, said Lena Hawtin, clinical supervisor at the Coos County Public Health Department. She said people can’t get sick from the shot. “People get sick because they were already exposed to the flu virus,” said Hawtin. But, she said it might cause other issues. “It can cause achiness and soreness at the site.” Flu clinics The CDC said side effects were “mild and short-lastWalk-in clinics for the influenza ing, especially when comand whooping cough immunizapared to symptoms of tions: influenza infection.” ■ Coquille Juvenile/Health Possible side effects for Building (behind the courthouse), the flu shot are: soreness, Coquille, 8:30 a.m.-noon and 1 redness or swelling where the p.m.-4 p.m., Oct. 4. ■ Lakeside Lions Club, 890 shot was given, low grade Bowron Road, Lakeside, 1 p.m.-4 fever and aches.

to higher education, services for seniors and mental health care. K itzhaber reached an agreement with legislative leaders on Sept. 18 and called lawmakers into special session starting Monday. The governor had hoped to work out the kinks and line up votes ahead of time, but the quick time frame left several key sticking points needing to be bridged. In private meetings, Republicans and Democrats debated largely technical points, such as how to ensure that a tax break for small businesses doesn’t become too costly and how to define which businesses should qualify. Many lawmakers were reluctant to vote so quickly on some of the bills, particularly the complicated tax and pension measures. The proposed pension cuts would reduce the annual inflation increase in retirees’ checks, from 2 percent to 1.25 percent on the first $60,000 in income and to 0.15 percent on any additional income. Under the tax changes, higher income individuals and certain businesses would face a higher tax bill. SEE SESSION | A8

DeFazio: Nation will survive shutdown BY LES BOWEN The World

COOS BAY — Congressman Peter DeFazio, DSpringfield, called the federal government shutdown on Tuesday a “phony crisis,” and blamed the far-right wing of House Republicans for the failure of Congress to pass an appropriations bill. “They (House Republicans) are shutting the government down because they say the Affordable Care Act is so detrimental,” DeFazio said on a phone interview, referring to House GOP rhetoric denouncing President Barack Obama’s signa-

ture health care law. “If the Affordable Care Act is really that bad, it will be apparent to people. But I don’t think it’s going to be bad.” The Congressman said the budget gridlock is the result of 20-30 “ultra-radical, libertarian anarchists who are thrilled to shut the government down.” The rest of the opposition in the House, he said, is due to fear of primary challengers some House Republicans could face in primaries in 2014. “We hope this is short term,” DeFazio said. “This is something we will survive.” He added he has more concern at recent talk of

extending the shutdown to a pending vote to raise the federal debt ceiling in two weeks. If that happens, DeFazio said, the federal government could be looking at higher bond rates and impacts that could ripple through the economy. DeFazio’s congressional staff was still operating at its normal level Tuesday. “We’re getting more calls than we normally get on a daily basis,” DeFazio said. “The problem is we can intake the problems, but the agencies can’t address the problems at the moment.” If the shutdown persists more than a few days,

DeFazio said he will begin to furlough some staff. He went on to express concerns that the dredging of three ports along the Oregon Coast, led by the Army Corps of Engineers, could be held up during the shutdown. However, he was hopeful that the project would continue because a bulk of funding for the project comes from state and local sources.

Crash sends motorcycle rider to Bay Area Hospital Name, condition of injured driver not released ■

BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World

COOS BAY — A car-versus-motorcycle collision was one of two crashes that slowed U.S. Highway 101 traffic Tuesday afternoon. Oregon State Police and Coos County sheriff's deputies arrived at the Slaughterhouse Lane intersection at approximately 2:30 p.m., where a red motorcycle had collided with a silver mid-1980s sedan. Emergency personnel from Bay Cities Ambulance and the Millington volunteer fire department quickly tended to the motorcycle's injured rider, who lay motionless on the pavement.

The rider was transported by ambulance to Bay Area Hospital. It was not immediately clear whether the driver of the sedan was seriously injured. Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier arrived at the scene shortly after 3 p.m. Oregon State Police and officers from the North Bend Police Department remained on scene as late as 6 p.m. investigating the collision. Emergency personnel also responded to a second crash near Beaver Hill Road intersection shortly after, where a yellow SUV had rolled over on the shoulder of the northbound lane.

Timber regions need long-term plan Against all odds, federal timber payments likely will flow to Oregon counties for at least another year. U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, pulling another legislative rabbit out of his hat, attached a oneyear extension of the Secure Rural Schools program payments to an unrelated bill dealing with a pending shortage of helium, which is essential to manufacturing. The bill passed the House unanimously last month and should have smooth sailing in the Senate. It’s getting harder and harder to get Congress to approve these timber payments, which are intended to reimburse rural Western counties for the revenue they’ve lost as logging operations in those counties, dominated by federal forest lands, have dipped dramatically. The payments aren’t welfare to the counties — but, increasingly, that’s the attitude Wyden’s colleagues have.That explains in part why legislative sleight of hand was required to get the payments extended for another year. Our guess is that the legislative trickery required to pull the payments out of the dustbin of history just about has run its course. This truly could be the last hurrah for the program. As Wyden reminded his Albany audience this summer, however, the timber payments always were meant as a stopgap, to buy time so that counties that used to depend on logging can rethink their economies. As Wyden knows as well as anyone, the

Taking a practical approach to public access Generating, accessing and protecting public/private records can accurately be described as some of the most potent issues of our age. But like agencies throughout the nation, some county offices have recently been bowing underneath the weight of records requests from citizens concerned about various aspects of governance. On a local level, making sure agency actions aren’t driven by anything other than valid laws and regulations is of paramount importance to citizens. But the ability to seek detailed behind-the-scenes information from government also is prone to accidental and deliberate overuse.

These concerns — about wasting agency time and some behaving as digital peeping toms — have led to moves in some states to impose additional limits on access. We can avoid such backward steps for democracy by: ■ Speaking up to legislators and local officials in support of government transparency; ■ Carefully tailoring requests for information to seek only what we genuinely need; ■ Being prepared to personally pay for excess staff time and copying charges; For their part, officials and agency employees can avoid at least some stressful information demands by cheerfully and speedily complying with all reasonable inquiries. Cooperation breeds trust. The Daily Astorian

Medical marijuana dispensaries need to avoid controversy Opponents of the expansion of Oregon’s medical marijuana program have raised numerous concerns about plans to open dispensaries to serve cardholders in the program.

We think those who support the program, and those who support outright legalization, should be just as concerned, but for different reasons. The state Legislature approved a measure this year that allows the creation of state-regulated medical marijuana dispensaries that can sell marijuana to cardholders. This was a half-step in dealing with the issues created by Oregon’s medical marijuana law, which has been regularly abused. The Legislature also established the Medical Marijuana Dispensary Law Rules Advisory Committee to oversee implementation of the new law. The committee is reviewing a variety of options, from limits on how many dispensaries will be allowed in a community to where in that community they will be allowed to operate. Buckley says local communities will have a say in the process, but it’s unlikely they would be able to ban them outright. Given the black eye the existing medical marijuana program has received because of the abuses by some of its participants, marijuana advocates should hope the legislative committee crafts some tough, enforceable rules. Those advocates should do everything in their power to ensure that the new dispensaries keep their operations legal and their employees out of the police blotters. The (Medford) Mail Tribune

‘Defund’ Obamacare? Impossible First they lie to you, and then they ask you for money. That’s the essence of the great Tea Party/Ted Cruz crusade to “defund” Obamacare, a political and constitutional impossibility. The question was settled, probably for good, when President Obama won re-election in 2012 and Democrats kept control of the Senate. Instead, it’s about TV face time and harvesting donations from gullible voters misled both about the Affordable Care Act itself and Sen. Cruz’s nonexistent chances of ending it. A narrow Republican majority in the House can’t void the Affordable Care Act any more than 54 Senate Democrats can force everybody in Oklahoma to eat broccoli. Anybody who tells you differently is a flim-flam artist. Such as Newt Gingrich. The presiding genius of the 1996 GOP government shutdown went on ABC’s “This GENE Week” to deliver pseudohistorical profundity: LYONS “Under our constitutionColumnist al system going all the way back to Magna Carta in 1215, the people’s house is allowed to say to the king we ain’t giving you money.” Actually, the U.S. Constitution of 1789 makes no provision for a king. Neither, as former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich has reminded Gingrich, does it “allow a majority of the House of Representatives to repeal the law of the land by defunding it. If that were the case, no law [would be] safe.” No federal court could rule otherwise. It’s a separation of powers issue. These principles are so fundamental to American governance that even the Wall Street Journal reminds GOP hotheads that for all the three-ring thrills provided by Sen. Cruz and his allies, “the only real way to repeal the law is to win elections.” The irony is that even if House Republicans ended up forcing a government shutdown, the rollout of the Affordable Care Act wouldn’t be much affected. Like Social Security and Medicare, Obamacare has its own dedicated funding stream which Congress can alter only by amending the law — again, requiring the cooperation of both the Senate and White House. An even greater irony, many have pointed out, is that if Republicans really believed the law will prove a terrible failure, these last-minute theatrics wouldn’t be necessary. Their actual fear is that once the notoriously uninformed American public gets first-hand experience with the Affordable Care Act, they’re going to like it just fine. Meanwhile, establishment Republicans are growing restive. Writing in The Hill, former Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) complains that “These are folks who have never governed and are not inclined to do so. Rather, their goals are improved fundraising and, in some cases, individual advancement.” Gregg sees the Cruz/Boehner backup plan of threatening to default on the national debt as even crazier, “the political equivalent of playing Russian roulette with all the chambers of the gun loaded. ... At some point, the debt ceiling will have to be increased not because it is a good idea but because it is the only idea.” Gregg retired from the Senate in 2010. Back then nobody had ever heard of Ted Cruz. Today, however, win or lose, the Tea Party has found its champion. Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner and coauthor of “The Hunting of the President” (St. Martin’s Press, 2000).

Public Forum We need Second Amendment Yes, even after the recent batch of gun shootings, we still need the Second Amendment, even more now. Obama and all the anti-gun nuts seem to forget about our Constitution, but that’s their downfall. They not only don’t like the Second Amendment, they act as if I were talking about the Satanic Bible. The only thing that keeps this great nation from completely going over to a dictatorship is the Constitution, period. Our forefathers wrote this sacred document for a reason, so that everyone would be protected from dictators and power hungry people who, if they had their way, would have all living under a Marxist government. Back to the Second Amendment. Read what it says. It does not say anything about only the powers that be have the right to keep arms. Read the definition of

the world “militia.” It says any group of armed men (Americans other than regular military groups,such as the Army,National Guard, or any such government group). For years the liberals tried to hide behind the excuse that the world militia meant the National Guard; that was their excuse. Maybe liberals should try reading and stop changing the meaning of our Constitution. Some schools around the nation have changed the wording of our most sacred document, all in a hope that people will buy their ploy. Every time some person goes on one of these shooting sprees, after the fact, almost every time, that person has had mental issues. But because of the stupid ruling, anything a patient tells his doctor is somehow sacred and private. Then there is the issue of the liberal media outright distorting the facts in the events. They almost always point to key words, such as, AR-15 type, or full-auto, or other such mumbojumbo. Many of these reports are completely wrong.

We are free in this country only because we have a Constitution which provides our right to speak out, assemble to protest, and yes, keep and bear arms, not to mention all of the other rights that the Constitution provides us. Once our leaders start trying to claim that the Constitution is nice but “outdated” we should start being very watchful. God bless this country and our sacred Constitution. Roger Wilson Coos Bay

Shut down politics Here’s a big news alert: House Republicans oppose Obamacare. That’s why they’ve shut the government down. No, doing so won’t actually stop Obamacare. To a great extent, the program is on autopilot. The Republicans shut down the government, but the exchanges are open for business. The last time the Republicans shut down the government, they at least had the fig leaf that they were doing so to protest the size of government. Not this time. This time, it’s not about the size of government. It’s not about the deficit.The Senate already has gone along with the House’s insistence that agencies cut their spending in the coming weeks. This is pure symbolism — on the Republican side — at the expense of people who depend on the government and work for the government. Maybe you work as an air traffic controller or a prison guard. The

“good news” is you’re still working. The “bad news” is you don’t get paid. It’s not right. Make no mistake. This SUSAN is not going to help Republi- ESTRICH cans in the Columnist long run.Playing games with people’s lives is not smart politics. The fact that many well-known Republican senators have made clear that this is not an appropriate way to protest Obamacare underscores the ideological extremism that holds sway in the House. Just the other day, a lifelong Republican sought me out to express his immense frustration. Why are they doing this, he kept asking me. Don’t they understand that however unpopular Obamacare is, closing down the gov-

ernment as a symbolic protest is going to be seen as irresponsible? It’s even more unpopular than Obamacare. I have no answer other than the obvious one: that the House is under the control of extremists who are throwing a political temper tantrum, and responsibility be damned. As a Democrat, I should be pleased. As an American, I am deeply troubled. We’re used to having extremists hold sway on cable television. But that’s entertainment. You can vote with your clicker. You don’t have to watch. At the end of the day, no one gets hurt. Congress should be different. It’s not a TV show. This is real life. This is about parents not getting paid, people who need loans for their businesses not getting help, people who are sick having to wait for the ideologues to stop playing games. “I’m always willing to work with anyone of either party to

make sure the Affordable Care Act works better,” the president said. “But one faction of one party in one house of Congress in one branch of government doesn’t get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election.” Except that they did. Obamacare was a central issue in the last election. By the time he won his party’s nomination, Mitt Romney had effectively turned his back on his own (similar) program in Massachusetts and was urging voters who opposed Obamacare to vote for him. If you wanted to get rid of Obamacare, the way to do it was to elect Romney and give Republicans a majority in the Senate. It didn’t happen. Romney lost. The Senate remains in Democratic hands. That’s how it works in a democracy. You win some, and you lose some. The tea party lost. Better luck next time. Susan Estrich is a lawyer and professor in California.

State Husband’s anxiety threatens to push wife over the edge DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my best friend, “Blake,” for two years. A year ago he started having panic attacks, so I made an appointment for him with his doctor. After checking him for everything, including heart failure, the doctor diagnosed him with anxiety. Since his diagnosis, Blake is scared to leave the house. I have been working two jobs to make ends meet because he says he “can’t work.” This has taken a toll on our marriage. We have three kids and a lot of bills. Blake is on medicaDEAR tion and has tried many different ones, but they aren’t working. All he talks about is his anxiety and every little ache or pain. JEANNE He thinks PHILLIPS he’s going to have a heart attack. I am fed up with it, while he says I just “don’t understand anxiety.” Sometimes I think he’s making his anxiety worse. I don’t know what to believe or what to do. Any suggestions? — STRESSED IN VIRGINIA DEAR STRESSED: Yes, I do have one.Your husband should be seen by a licensed mental health professional (psychologist) who works with a psychiatrist. He may need more than medication to help him conquer his anxiety disorder. He might do better with a combination of talk therapy in addition to his meds. Please urge your husband to do this because the aches, pains and anxiety he’s experiencing may seem like they’re all in his head to you, but they’re real to him. It could save your marriage. DEAR ABBY: My husband and daughters and I enjoy a beach trip every year. With our busy lives, it’s the one time in the year we are able to be together and relax. Although we have invited friends and family over the years to join us, I have never invited my sister. She keeps bringing it up and portrays me as the snobby sister. The truth is she has two undisciplined children whom I can’t stand to be around. I suspect she just wants to join us so she can pawn her kids off on me while she and her husband relax. My mother is now telling me I’m selfish and not being a good sister. Must I sacrifice my one week a year at the beach to make my sister feel better? Please advise. — IT’S MY VACATION DE AR MY VA CAT IO N: Considering that you have invited friends and family to join you, but not your sister, I can see how she might feel snubbed. Has no one told her your reason for not inviting her and her family to join you? If not, someone should, because it might motivate her to assert more control over her children. If she takes offense, however, you will be off the hook because SHE will no longer want to socialize with YOU. DEAR ABBY: We have a housecleaner once a month. Last month, I offered her some grapefruit from our tree and she took six. This month, she helped herself to all of the fruit that was left on the tree! She didn’t ask permission, and she didn’t tell me she had done it. I happened to see her put it into her car. I consider this to be stealing, but my husband does not. Because she took the fruit without permission and without telling me, do you consider it stealing? — “ANITA” IN FLORIDA D E A R “ A N I T A ” : The woman may have assumed you wouldn’t mind if she took the fruit because you had offered it to her the month before. (Did you say she could take only six?) Rather than call this stealing, I would call it a misunderstanding. Clear it up by telling your housecleaner that you want nothing removed from your premises unless you have SPECIFICALLY told her she may have it.

Oregon’s insurance marketplace opens with glitches PORTLAND(AP) — Oregon officials and insurance companies have been pushing hard to drum up interest in the health insurance exchange that launched Tuesday, using everything from folk singers to an upcoming party in Portland’s town square to tout the benefits of President Obama’s health care overhaul. Day one, however, arrived The Associated Press with a hitch. The insurance Rocky King, executive director of Cover Oregon, announces opening day marketplace called Cover of the health exchange in Portland,Tuesday. Cover Oregon begins offer- Oregon was up and running, ing services today. but technical problems pre-

vented people from enrolling in coverage through the website until later this month. More than 75,000 unique visitors went to coveroregon.com as of 4 p.m. They were able to scroll through insurance plans and prices, and find certified insurance agents and community organizations to help them start the process of buying coverage as mandated by the federal government. They couldn’t enroll, however, because the online system is not correctly deter-

mining eligibility for Medicaid, Healthy Kids and tax credits. More than 2,500 people called the Cover Oregon hotline Tuesday. Cover Oregon executive director Rocky King described the issue as a “state technology challenge” that has nothing to do with federal government or its shutdown. He decided the error rate was simply too high during a trial run Saturday, and accuracy is more important than having the online exchange fully operational on opening day.

Search on for 2 hikers in Wash. state; 2 safe SEATTLE (AP) — Search and rescue officials plan to renew their efforts to locate a man and a woman missing in separate, remote parts of southwest Washington after a helicopter rescued two other hikers from waist-deep snow. Hikers Matt Margiotta and Kyla Arnold were hoisted aboard a Coast Guard helicopter Tuesday evening from the snowy Pacific Crest Trail north of Trout Lake, Wash., Skamania County Undersheriff Dave Cox said. They were flown to Portland, and apparently required no medical aid, he said. They had walked all the way from Mexico on the trail only to run into

early season snowfall in their attempt to reach the Canadian border. They called for help Monday after snow obscured their route. Ground searchers who had the pair’s GPS location got within threequarters of a mile on Tuesday before the snow and fading daylight forced them to turn back. The helicopter from Astoria, took advantage of a weather window to reach them. Today, rescue officials hoped to locate Alejandrea Wilson, a third hiker on the Pacific Crest Trail, and Kristopher Zitzewitz, who was last seen in the Big Lava Beds area of Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Wilson was reported overdue on

Monday after she failed to check in with her father, Dane Wilson, of Portland, as expected. She was believed to be about a day’s hike ahead of Margiotta and Arnold’s location, or about 20 miles farther north. “We’ll keep trying to ping her phone, get a location on her,” Cox said, adding he hoped the weather would allow an air search. Her father reported that he last heard from her Friday as she was leaving Trout Lake, a tiny hamlet south of Mount Adams, for White Pass, Cox said. More than 40 ground searchers and four dog teams searched Tuesday

for Zitzewitz, 31, of Portland, who became separated from his partner in the Big Lava Beds on Saturday. Weather in that area was rainy, with temperatures dipping into the low 40s at night, he said. Snow has been falling in the Washington mountains since the weekend, which was likely the first snow to fall on Pacific Crest Trail hikers, Cox said. Searchers encountered two other hikers on the trail and persuaded them to turn around. “The problem with all the snow on the ground is you can’t even tell where the trail is,” Cox said. “Some folks try to push on and wind up getting lost.”

New prison estimate shows many fewer inmates PORTLAND (AP) — The latest projection of Oregon’s prison populations shows inmate numbers down by 500 over the next two years because of changes made in the 2013 legislative session. The Oregonian reports the forecast issued Tuesday is a dramatic shift from one six months ago. At that point, the state projected a rising prison population over the next decade and said the growth would cost taxpayers $600 million. Among the changes are reduced sentences for some crimes, such as marijuana possession, and a greater likelihood that some offenders will be on probation instead of going to prison.

ALBANY (AP) — A Linn County sheriff’s officer says a 51-year-old Nevada man accused in the 1987 slaying of a man he served time with at the Oregon State Penitentiary has been arrested on a murder warrant. Undersheriff Bruce Riley said in a statement Tuesday that Dennis Beach was arrested in the death of 35year-old Thomas Hyland. Beach was arrested Monday in Dayton, Nev., and was booked into the Lyon County jail pending extradition. Riley says a friend who reported Hyland missing in July 1987 he said was likely a homicide victim. The man’s remains were found by mushroom pickers near Sweet Home in April 1989. Hyland was fatally shot. The undersheriff says Beach was identified as a possible suspect but never arrested. Detectives uncovered new evidence and presented it to a grand jury, leading to the arrest warrant for Beach.

Nation and World

U.S. businesses worry about a prolonged shutdown NEW YORK (AP) — As the government’s partial shutdown enters a second day, most companies across the country are doing business as usual. Yet concern is rising that a prolonged shutdown would cause some work at private companies to dry up and consumers to lose faith in the U.S. economy. Many of the 800,000 government workers without paychecks would no longer shop at malls, buy cars or splurge on dinner out. “They’re not getting a paycheck, they’re probably going to be cutting corners immediately in all areas, and dining out will probably be one of those,” said Don Davey, who owns 20 Firehouse Subs franchises in Florida and Wisconsin. If sales drop, Davey said he’ll have to reduce the hours his 250 staffers work. “Some of our employees could be making less money as soon as next week,” he said.

For each week the government remains shut, the U.S. economy would lose 0.15 percent of annualized growth, David Stockton, a former research director at the Federal Reserve who is now at the Peterson Institute, estimates. Consultants on some government projects have stopped flying and staying at hotels. And vacationers looking to spend money at national parks are being forced to reroute their itineraries. For some executives, there is the frustrating sense that the federal government has become a sad joke. “Here we go again,” said JetBlue Airways CEO Dave Barger. “Business customers, leisure customers — people want predictability. It’s really frustrating.” With no one sure how long the standoff in Washington will last, companies large and small are gauging the effects of a shutdown that endures more than a week or two.

Steve Silberberg, who owns a company based in Hull, Mass., that runs hiking trips in national parks and forests,said a shutdown that lasts three weeks could force him to cancel a trip planned in November in the Ouachita National Forest in Arkansas. The forest is closed, and rangers can’t issue a permit for Silberberg’s company, Fatpacking, to run the trip for 12 hikers. Silberberg stands to lose about $12,000 in revenue if he has to cancel. And the guides he plans to hire for the trip wouldn’t be paid. “I’m guardedly optimistic that it won’t last long,” Silberberg said. The partial shutdown has put Mark Moore’s government contract bids in limbo. Moore’s company, Kavaliro Staffing Services, based in Orlando, Fla., is awaiting a decision on more than $500,000 in contract bids on defense-related projects. Under the contracts,

Kavaliro would place 20 to 25 information technology workers at government sites nationwide. Moore already knew it could take weeks or months to get a decision. The shutdown will extend the wait. “It’s pretty hard for the government to award contracts when they’re not working,” Moore said. Defense contractors like Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Raytheon Co. have no plans to shut down soon. But eventually, money would run out to build tanks, ships, planes and weapons. “The overarching issue is how prolonged it is,” said John Dern, a spokesman for Boeing Co. Boeing’s commercial side — and its airline customers — might endure more headaches from the shutdown if Federal Aviation Administration officials can’t certify its newest version of the 787 Dreamliner.

Stop being so stupid, voters tweet to Congress WASHINGTON (AP) — The roiling debate over the U.S. government shutdown is extending to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as fed-up Americans turn to social media to register their disgust with federal lawmakers for shutting down the government. Those posting pulled no punches, calling members of Congress “immature,” “stupid” and “idiots” who need to “grow up.” There were a few attaboys, too, by self-described red-state conservatives who cheered on the Republican leadership’s unwavering stance against President Barack Obama’s health care plan. But mostly, tweeters said they couldn’t under-

New sanctions likely despite thaw in U.S.-Iran ties WASHINGTON (AP) — A war-weary Congress generally backs President Barack Obama’s outreach to Iran, but with tougher U.S. economic measures against Tehran on the way, the president’s diplomatic task could get harder if he doesn’t make quick progress. Obama’s phone call last week to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was a groundbreaking conversation. It was the first contact in more than 30 years between the leaders of the two countries and an about-face from when Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, included Iran in his “axis of evil” with North Korea and Iraq. The sentiment in Washington’s political circles has changed, too. Five years ago, Obama the presidential candidate was hit with criticism for suggesting talks with the Iranians without preconditions. Then during his re-election campaign, Obama was called weak on Iran. Now, even leading Senate hawks, such as his 2008 opponent, John McCain of Arizona, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, have backed Obama’s careful

engagement effort. The debate essentially has shifted away from whether it’s worth talking to Iran to debating the details of engaging Iran, which claims it is not seeking nuclear weapons. While Obama’s gesture to Tehran hasn’t prompted major GOP criticism, it has fed into domestic arguments over health care and spending levels. Several Republicans in Congress have lambasted the president for appearing “more willing” to talk to Rouhani than with them. While the current government shutdown may have muted congressional reaction to Obama’s phone call with Rouhani, lawmakers are moving forward on legislation for new sanctions, with plans to tee them up so the president can use enhanced sanctions as part of his negotiating leverage. In July, the House approved tough new sanctions on Iran’s oil sector and other industries. The bill blacklists any business in Iran’s mining and construction sectors and commits the United States to the goal of ending all Iranian oil sales worldwide by 2015.

WORLD D I G E S T Outside U.S., effects of budget battle feared

The Associated Press

Mike Easterwood checks one of the solar panels installed on the roof of his 1947-era building in Decatur, Ga., on Sept. 26. Easterwood paid about $320,000 to install nearly 400 solar panels on top of his self-storage business near Atlanta.

Utilities fight over solar rates ATLANTA (AP) — Sunlight is free, but if you use it to make electricity your power company wants you to pay. Utilities in many states say solarfriendly rate plans, conceived to promote alternative energy sources, are too generous and allow solar customers to avoid paying for the grid even though they use it. Some power companies are proposing an extra fee for solar customers. Others are trying to roll back or block programs that allow those customers to trade the solar power they generate during sunny days for power they need from the grid during other times. As rooftop solar expands from a niche product to a mainstream way to save money on power bills, utilities are afraid they will lose so many customers — and revenue — that they won’t be able to afford to build and maintain the grid. “We want to make sure that as we change the way our system works that all of that is good for all customers,” said Greg Roberts, vice president of pricing and planning at Southern Co. subsidiary Georgia Power. The utility is proposing additional fees for renewable energy users, including one that would add up to

about $22 per month for typical home solar systems. Solar installers say the utility industry is trying to hold onto customers — and protect profits — as U.S. homes and businesses become more efficient and generate their own electricity. Rooftop solar systems would not be economical with some of the new fees or rate changes being pushed by utilities. “They are trying to punish people for buying less electricity,” says Bryan Miller, vice president for public policy at Sunrun, a solar financing company. “They are trying to kill solar.” Mike Easterwood, who installed solar panels on top of his business near Atlanta, says the new charges are designed to discourage people from installing new systems if they go into effect next year as proposed. The fight has come about because solar systems have plummeted in price and grown more popular at a time when U.S. electricity use is flat or even declining. Utilities, already facing the prospect of weak sales for years to come, are seeing more customers buy drastically less power when they generate their own with solar panels, fuel cells, or other socalled “distributed generation” technologies.

U.S. expels three Venezuelan envoys in retaliation The Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Three Syrian opposition fighters take cover during exchange of fire with government forces in Telata village, a frontline located at the top of a moun- Venezuelan diplomats were ordered out of the United States on Tuesday in response to tain in Syria on Sept. 29.

Weapons experts begin Syria mission amid clashes BEIRUT (AP) — As deadly clashes raged on the edge of Damascus, international inspectors left their hotel on Wednesday to start work on the task of destroying Syria’s chemical arsenal under the tightest of deadlines in the midst of a civil war. The inspectors’ mission — endorsed by a U.N. Security Council resolution passed last week — is to scrap Syria’s capacity to manufacture chemical weapons by Nov. 1 and eliminate the country’s entire 1,000-ton stockpile by mid-2014. A convoy of SUVs with U.N. markings could be seen departing the central Damascus hotel where the team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was staying. It was not clear where the inspectors, who

arrived in Syria on Tuesday from neighboring Lebanon, were headed on their first full day in the country. Their work comes against a backdrop of relentless fighting. On the northern edge of the city, fierce clashes between Syrian troops and al-Qaidalinked fighters left at least 12 soldiers and pro-government militiamen dead Tuesday, anti-regime activists said, as the army pressed on with a campaign to dislodge opposition fighters from the capital. The fighting in the contested district of Barzeh had flared up on Monday, when the army stepped up attacks against opposition forces who have been trying to capture the area for months, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

stand why a compromise between the two sides seemed so elusive. “#DearCongress, You should not be getting paid. In fact, you all should be fired!” tweeted Bruce Swedal,a 46-year-old Denver real estate agent who says he is worried about what the shutdown might do to home sales if federally backed loans dry up. The public outcry playing out on social media sites this week is a new twist. During the last shutdown of government operations, in 1995, angry Americans would have had to look up their congressman’s address and sit down and write an oldfashioned letter or email.

their government’s decision to boot three U.S. officials from Venezuela, including the highest-ranking U.S. envoy in the country. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced the expulsion of U.S. charge d’affaires Kelly Keiderling and two other diplomats Monday, accusing them of conspiring with “the extreme right” to sabotage the South American country’s economy and power grid. U.S. officials vigorously denied the allegation and had hinted Tuesday afternoon there might be a retaliatory expulsion of Venezuelan envoys. Late Tuesday, the State Department said it was expelling Venezuelan charge d’affaires Calixto Ortega Rios and Second Secretary Monica Alejandra Sanchez Morales at the Washington embassy and Consul Marisol Gutierrez de Almeida at the Houston consulate. It gave them 48 hours to leave the U.S., the same time frame set by Venezuela for the U.S. envoys. “It is regrettable that the Venezuelan government has again decided to expel U.S. diplomatic officials based on groundless allegations, which require reciprocal action. It is counterproductive to the interests of both our countries,” the State Department said. Maduro said earlier Tuesday that socialist-led Venezuela will not have cordial relations with the United States as long as U.S. diplomats continue what he alleges are attempts to destabilize his country. Speaking from the government palace, Maduro said that “while the government of

PARIS (AP) — Top European officials are keeping a worried eye on the U.S. government shutdown, saying it could pose a risk for the continent’s fledgling recovery. The U.S. has the world’s largest economy and close business ties with Europe. So the shutdown, which has seen some 800,000 federal employees put on furlough, could hurt growth around the world if Congress does not agree on a new budget deal within days. The president of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, said Wednesday that the shutdown “is a risk if protracted,” though he added that the “the impression is that it won’t be.” The U.S. Congress also needs to find a deal on raising the country’s debt ceiling later this month. If it doesn’t, the U.S. would face a potential default, a development that could inflict massive damage on the global economy.

Italy PM survives after Berlusconi about-face ROME (AP) — Silvio Berlusconi made a stunning about-face Wednesday and threw his support behind the government of Premier Enrico Letta in a confidence vote, acknowledging defeat on the Senate floor after defections in his party robbed him of the backing he needed to bring down the government. Berlusconi’s support ensured the survival — for now — of Letta’s 5-month-old leftright coalition. But it signaled that the 77-year-old billionaire’s once unchallenged authority over Italy’s centerright has wobbled as his judicial woes catch up with him. It was a major setback for Berlusconi, who over the weekend had demanded his five Cabinet ministers quit the government and bring it down, incensed at a vote planned Friday that could strip him of his Senate seat following his tax fraud conviction and four-year prison sentence.

Bumpy first day for new insurance markets

The Associated Press

Kelly Keiderling, Charge d’Affairs of the U.S. embassy in Venezuela, gives a news conference after Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro expelled her and two other embassy officials from the country, in Caracas, Venezuela, on Tuesday. the United States does not understand that it has to respect our country’s sovereignty there will be simply be no cordial relations nor cordial communication.” “The day that the government of President (Barack) Obama rectifies the situation we will establish new points of contact to discuss common issues,” said Maduro, the hand-picked successor to late President Hugo Chavez. In a news conference in Caracas, Keiderling said she and the other diplomats would leave Venezuela on Wednesday before the 48-hour deadline expired. “The work of the embassy will continue. It doesn’t matter very much if it is one person or another” doing it, she said.

CHICAGO (AP) — For millions of Americans trying to log in, the online insurance marketplaces created by the new health care law began with a stalled website, an error message or a menu that didn’t work. But the debut of the new insurance marketplaces might have been a victim of the law’s own success. The initial signup day appeared to draw heavy interest that suggested pentup demand for just the kind of coverage now being offered. Tennessee State University student Sam Rutherford, 31, said he signed up for a policy on Tuesday, some 15 years after a sledding accident that resulted in him losing several organs. “I’ve been virtually uninsurable since that time,” he said. In 36 states where the federal government is running the marketplaces, a snag involving security questions on users’ accounts cropped up repeatedly, preventing many from completing their enrollment.

Safety tips

vaccine, said Nikki Zogg, public health administrator for Coos County. Hawtin said about 600 flu shots were given at the public health department last year. She said she expected the same number this year. There are two new vaccines available this season in the United States — Flucelvax and Flublok, which are made using new techniques. Flucelvax uses cultured animal cells instead of fertilized chicken eggs. It is the first of its kind using this method. Flublok is made using recombinant techniques. It does not use the virus or eggs. In clinical trials, both had similar safety profiles as other vaccines. Hawtin said the most common vaccine, with an inactivated virus, was being offered at the health department. There are two brands there. One is Fluzone, which has been on the market for six months. The other is Fluvirin, which has been out for at least four years, Hawtin said.

To protect yourself from getting the flu, the Coos County Public Health Department recommends: ■ Avoid contact with sick people. ■ If you are sick, stay home, except to get medical care or other necessities. Limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. ■ Cover nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing/sneezing. Throw the tissue away after use. ■ Wash hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand rub as alternative. ■ Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth as germs spread easily this way. ■ Clean and disinfect surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu.

The effectiveness of the flu vaccine varies, according to the CDC. The virus changes and people respond differently to the shot. The CDC studies samples of flu viruses circulating during each season and tries to make a good match. Peoples’ characteristics, such as age and health also impact the shot’s effectiveness.

Bomb threat closes airport in Florida JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities said a man arrested at Jacksonville International Airport told security screeners he had a bomb in his backpack but they only found a luggage scale with a microchip inside, along with a remote control device he called a “detonator.” Zeljko Causevic, 39, was booked into jail early Wednesday and was being held without bond on charges that included making a false report about planting a bomb or explosive and manufacturing, possessing, selling or delivering a hoax bomb, according to an arrest report. The arrest report indicates Causevic approached a TSA agent Tuesday and said he had a bomb in his bag. The TSA

agents notified authorities. Airport spokesman Michael Stewart said Causevic was detained between 5:30 and 6 p.m. The airport was evacuated and flights were stopped before reaching the gates.Passengers were displaced for nearly five hours. Causevic was scheduled to appear in bond court in Jacksonville at 1 p.m. An arrest report indicates he is originally from Bosnia. Another person was arrested after officials say he started acting suspiciously but authorities said he was not connected to Causevic. Passengers and people who arrived at the airport to pick them up Tuesday evening were stranded for hours as officials investigated.

Let’s hype that other in-state quarterback Coming back from Saturday’s Ducks game, a saddening revelation slapped me in the face. Stuck at a gas station and looking at my phone for stats, I realized it’s time for me to have a chat about the other quarterback in Oregon. Let’s be honest, it’s time for even me to recognize that there might be another great quarterback in the state all together. His name is Sean Mannion of your Oregon State Beavers and he’s pretty good at playing football. For the better part of the past year, I’ve been championing Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and how he will be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and winning the SPORTS Heisman Trophy on his way out just as a cherry on top. Wasting away in Mariota-ville will certainly get plenty of publicity nationally as Oregon conGEORGE tinues through ARTSITAS the Pac-12 slate, especially with the litany of nationally televised games the Ducks will be getting along the way. But it’s the other guy just a little further north in Corvallis that I think deserves his time in the sun right now. As a person who doesn’t follow Oregon State as closely as OSU alumni, I thought the quarterback competition coming into this year was legit. I thought Cody Vaz — who played in a massive chunk of games while Mannion sat with an injury last fall — could’ve been the guy coming into the season. After talking to some of the beat writers in Corvallis and my go-to, diehard Beavers fan John Gunther, who doubles as my sports editor, I realized it wasn’t a competition. Mannion wasn’t just the guy by default, he deserved to be the guy. And he’s proving that in spades this season. Mannion is leading the entire NCAA in passing yards and passing touchdowns this season. The guy’s averaging 403 yards a game and has tossed 21 touchdowns to just two interceptions on the year — the second one deflected right off the intended receiver’s hands in Saturday’s game against Colorado. He’s also leading the nation in passing attempts, but has been able to complete 67 percent of his throws. He averages 8.5 yards an attempt and anything over 7 per toss shows that he’s consistent. It also shows that coach Mike Riley trusts to let his guy throw the ball down the field. You remember when I mentioned there might’ve been quarterback controversy? It’s silly to think that now. And no matter how Oregon’s ranking or overall relevancy can dwarf what the team in orange and black to the north does, Mannion’s success has catapulted his team back to a reasonable point at 4-1. Other than the collective struggles the Beavers had in their opening loss against Eastern Washington — remember, they were a ranked team back then (just barely ranked at No. 25, but SIRI liked them as an underdog!) — they could be standing here as a top 20 team heading into the bye week. Now a Heisman candidate he is not. (Although, using the terminology “candidate” seems kind of silly. Isn’t everyone a candidate? There’s no nomination process. They’re just all student athletes, then finalists and then a winner. Tangent over). Although nationally he won’t get lauded like the Winstons, Bridgewaters, Boyds, Manziels, Murrays, McCarrons and Mariotas, he does deserve recognition for his past month. The kid is helping Oregon State to over 41 points a game so far on the year. Next, the Beavers have two very winnable games at Washington State and Cal on the schedule. But first the Beavers have a bye. If I was him, I’d kick my feet up and enjoy it. He’s earned it.

Marshfield sweeps Civil War match BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

By Lou Sennick, The World

Ashley LaBarre, dressed in pink for the Bulldogs, leaps to try to block a ball hit by Marshfield’s Abby Clough during their Far West League match Tuesday. The Bulldogs wore pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

NORTH BEND — There was a point early in Tuesday’s Civil War volleyball match at North Bend that it appeared the Bulldogs could beat the Pirates. Rachel Sheldon had a kill and then a stuff block on an attack attempt by the Pirates and North Bend led the opening game 15-9. Then Marshfield coach Tammie Montiel called a time out and the Pirates got refocused. A net error put Marshfield’s Tracee Scott on the service line and she rattled off six straight points. Hailee Woolsey took over from there, with six kills before finishing the game with an ace on the right sideline, giving the Pirates a 25-21 win. Marshfield wasn’t threatened late in either of the other two sets, finishing off the match with wins by 25-15 and 25-11 margins as the Pirates kept their

share of the league lead with Siuslaw at 7-1, a big match with the Vikings looming on Monday in Florence. Woolsey said the Pirates just needed to find their focus after the slow start. “We weren’t talking at first,” she said. “Once she called time out, we knew what we needed to do. We kind of got on fire.” Woolsey said the communication on the court keeps the Pirates focused and guarantees they are moving their feet on defense. “We worked as a team and kept our energy level up,” she said. The Pirates took control of the second game when Woolsey went on a six-point service run after the score had been tied 6-all. Abby Clough had two late kills and Woolsey finished the game by pounding the ball off two North Bend blockers and out of bounds for a powerful kill. SEE VOLLEYBALL | B2

Coquille squads top Marshfield THE WORLD Coquille’s soccer teams improved their postseason hopes by sweeping host Marshfield in a Far West League doubleheader Tuesday at Pete Susick Stadium. The Red Devils won the boys match 4-0 and the girls match 2-1. The Coquille boys improved to 6-3. When fourth-place Sutherlin tied Douglas 2-2 in another match Tuesday, Coquille’s grip on third place in the standings was improved. Coquille has 18 points (three for each win) and Sutherlin has 13 (four wins and a tie). The Red Devils also stayed within striking distance of North Bend for second place. The Bulldogs, who are 7-2, edged Coquille 1-0 in the first meeting between the teams, at North Bend. Brayden Schmitt, Pedro X imenes, Caleb Owens and Oswaldo Indalecio scored goals for the Red Devils in their win over Marshfield. “The boys are really coming together and clicking as a team,” said Coquille coach Heather Arzie. “I’m very proud of my boys as players and individuals.” Pacific 3, South Umpqua 0: The Pirates snapped a six-match winless streak by shutting out the visiting Lancers. Mason Berry got Pacific on the scoreboard in the third minute with a low shot off a long throw-in by Andrew Porter. Early in the second half, the Lancers had an own-goal under intense defensive pressure by Porter. About 15 minutes into the second half, Pio Figueroa took a pass, outran the South Umpqua fullbacks and sent a shot under the diving keeper into the corner of the net for the final goal. Pacific coach Rob Porter said the Pirates improved their passing and were aggressive on offense, putting up 40 shots. Kyle Dahms and Jesus Aguirre helped in that effort, Porter said. Ethan Wickstrom had the shutout in goal for the Pirates. At 3-5-1, Pacific is fifth in the league standings.

Bruins take control of FWL boys title chase BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

NORTH BEND — As inspiring as the North Bend girls game may have ended against visiting Brookings-Harbor on Tuesday, the boys suffered through the complete opposite fate. After fighting hard for almost 70 minutes of play on Tuesday, the Bulldogs let back-to-back goals in to fall to Brookings-Harbor 3-1. The loss puts North Bend two games back of the Bruins with less than half the schedule remaining and a slim chance of being able to take home a Far West League title. “I was really happy with the effort. We’re still really small and match up difficult with this team,”

Tom Zomerschoe said. “This game could’ve gone either way.” After a first half goal for the Bruins left them up 1-0 at halftime, the Bulldogs clawed to tie the game up early in the second half. With the ball near the goal box, Bruin Jacob Vaughn missed a kick and Luca Rossi came up on the other side. He punched the ball in, only to see the lineman’s flag up. He was offside. Five minutes later, Coy Woods headed the ball to Rossi off a throw in and he trapped it with his chest, twisted around and punted the ball in to tie the game at 1-1. That goal was just a microcosm of how Zomerschoe felt his team played in the half.

Sports BOYS

Miami will be patient with Greg Oden’s rehab

North Bend focuses on strong finish for league From Page B1 “We owned the second half,” Zomerschoe said. “ I’m happy how they handled themselves on the field.” Effort-wise Zomerschoe may have thought the second half belonged to North Bend, but the scoreboard read otherwise. In the 69th minute Alex Anaya took a 25-yard set piece from the right side and floated it over goalie Chris Seldon for a 2-1 lead. “Not a lot of things go over me with how tall I am. It caught everybody off guard a little bit, “ Seldon said. “It’s a lot of pressure to deal with. The person who puts the most blame on me is myself. I can’t speak for my teammates, but always feel a big sense of responsibility when the ball goes in the net." If the Chavez’s goal put a leak in the Bulldogs’ balloon, a few minutes later another goal popped it all together. In the 72nd minute, Jason Sharp of the Bruins got free on a breakaway and poked a ball past Seldon to give the Bruins a twogoal lead that proved to be insurmountable. Ian Bream showed the most energy out of any Bulldogs on the field on Tuesday. He may only be a sophomore, but the way he played Tuesday showed an urgency that this game was do-or-die. Turns out, in his mind, it was. “That’s what our goal was, to at least get a win from them (this year), but things happen,” Bream said. “Brookings is a little bit bigger and faster then us. We’ve learned to compete with them since the first time we played.” Expecting Brooking-Harbor to drop two league games is pointless. Now, the only thing the Bulldogs can do is try to secure second place in the league. “The way those guys played in the second half showed they are a playoff team,” Zomerschoe said.

VOLLEYBALL Marshfield has consistent effort From Page B1 The third game was tied 9-all before Marshfield’s Sam Stephens broke it open with a 13-point service run that included two aces. Sophomore McKenzie Allen, who is not part of the regular rotation, had two kills in the game and finished the match with an ace. “We worked as a team and we kept our energy level up,” said Woolsey, who finished the night with a team-best 15 kills, to go with two aces. Her power in the first game was a key to Marshfield getting going. “We’ve been working with her being able to be more consistent,” Montiel said. “She’s getting better at that.” The big thing for the Pirates is that was the way things went for the entire team. “We’ve been so up and down,” Montiel said. “I thought tonight was a consistent effort throughout the whole match. It looked like they were having fun out there.”

Abby Clough serves the ball for the Pirates in the second set during their match with the Bulldogs in North Bend on Tuesday. North Bend setter Lindsey Pettit said the same was true for the Bulldogs, even in the loss. “We love playing them,” she said. “They’re our rival.” Having Marshfield and

North Bend in the same league again is a good thing, Pettit said. “It helps us play better,” she said. On Tuesday, the Pirates were just a little stronger.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Greg Oden was watching from the sideline when the first Miami Heat practice of the season was wrapping up, big icepacks strapped to each of his knees. No cause for alarm. It’s all part of the plan. Oden wants to be able to play on Oct. 29, when the two-time defending champion Heat open their season against the Chicago Bulls. It doesn’t seem like having the oft-injured former No. 1 overall pick available for that game is exactly that big a priority for Miami, which is taking a very cautious approach with the center who hasn’t appeared in the NBA since 2009. “It’s step-by-step, practiceby-practice, minute-byminute,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He was able to do about a half-hour of the work (Tuesday), the majority of it non-contact.” Miami resumes training camp with two more scheduled practices in the Bahamas on Wednesday. The news that Oden practiced for only about one-quarter of the first session, combined with the size of the icebags on those knees afterward, would suggest that there’s a major problem. Quite the contrary, Spoelstra said. “That was a big bonus,” Spoelstra said of the fact that Oden was able to be on the floor at all. “We’ll move on from here ... and see what the next step will be.” Oden’s contract is a low-risk,

“We didn’t pass the way we needed to,” North Bend coach Les Willett said. “They wore us down a little bit. “I don’t think we gave up. We got beat.” North Bend got a boost with the return of Cherise Kirkpatrick. The Bulldogs had success blocking Marshfield’s initial attacks early in the first game with Kirkpatrick, Sheldon and Ashley LaBarre. But it didn’t last. McKenna Reasor led North Bend’s offense with eight kills. LaBarre and Sheldon combined for seven more. Pettit had 16 assists. Shay Jensen, who shares setting duties for the Pirates with Paige Tavernier, also provided offense with five kills. She and Tavernier combined for 29 assists. Clough and Scott had four kills and two aces each. North Bend is home Thursday against Douglas and Marshfield visits South Umpqua. Siuslaw is at Sutherlin, which has been on a tear the second half of the season, before the Vikings and Pirates meet Monday. “We’re excited for next week,” Woolsey said, before adding the Pirates know they can’t overlook South Umpqua.

GIRLS From Page B1 “When I’m kicking I don’t really think how far it is, that tends to mess me up. I just focus on where the ball has to go,” Johnson said. After the goal, she was overflowing with excitement as all her teammates clobbered her in celebration. And 43 seconds and a horn later, the home crowd joined in. Johnson is an enforcer and stopper on defense. She has been practicing really long back set pieces for awhile but since she plays so far back, she hasn’t scored since the first game of the year against Hidden Valley. Still, Johnson’s head coach, Dustin Hood, had some fortuitous premonitions the past week that finally came true Tuesday. “I said earlier this week, she’s gonna pull one out, she’s gonna win a game for us from that distance and sure enough she did,” Hood said. “I’m just so excited for her.” The other goal for the Bulldogs came from Mikena Shay in the 15th minute, about 20 minutes before the Bruins tied the game with a Molly Boyce header heading into half. With just over five minute left in the game, Emma Powley crossed a ball to a streaking Shay who had gotten past the last defender. She stuck her leg out, but barely missed a potentially game winning goal that rolled out for a goal kick. Powley got down on her knees and dug her face into the turf in disappointment. While Powley’s body language might’ve seemed like the game was over, Shay said after the game she was confident in her team’s chance.

potentially high-reward deal for the Heat. Obviously, they’ve been good enough to win it all in each of the last two seasons without him, and really without any true center for that matter. If Oden’s body betrays him again, it wouldn’t figure to seriously impair Miami’s chances at a third straight title. “I’m excited to see what Big G.O. has to offer,” said Heat star LeBron James, the league’s fourtime MVP. If Oden can add anything to the Heat mix, the team that’s already favored by many to win the title would look even more imposing. “I’m getting my step back,” Oden said after the initial practice. “But I’m happy to be out there and be around this atmosphere with the guys.” He looks slim, having dropped about 40 pounds for this comeback bid, and Oden plans to lose even more weight before the season starts. His career path is legendary for all the wrong reasons, with injuries wiping out what would have been his first NBA season with Portland— and that was an omen of what was to come, since constant knee problems have limited him to 82 regular-season games, total, since he was drafted in 2007. The only No. 1 pick to have appeared in fewer games than Oden in the last 40 years was Anthony Davis, and he has a good reason: He’s entering his second season with the New Orleans Pelicans.

GIRLS SOCCER Coquille 2, Marshfield 1: Coquille overcame a shorthanded defense to beat the Pirates as they kept their hold on third place. The Red Devils had three starting defenders out of the lineup due to injuries. “We had to make some changes in our lineup,” Coquille coach Mark Usselman said. Usselman moved Emma Owens, one of his top offensive players, to sweeper. The teams played to a scoreless first half before the Red Devils got two goals three minutes apart early in the second half. On the first goal, Kirsten Canaday scored on an assist by Bethany Meyer — two of the team’s seniors from Myrtle Point teaming up — to give Coquille the lead. Then Canaday scored the other goal in a quick-hitting play in the goal box — Makala Edgar passed to Eduarda Fabres, who chipped the ball to Canaday for a header. “Then we hung on,” Usselman said. Marshfield scored midway through the half and then the teams battled through the final 20 minutes. “Marshfield played very well,” Usselman said. “They have improved a lot.” The Red Devils host South Umpqua on Thursday and then have more than a week off before a big match against Douglas. “We’ve just got to take care of business now,” Usselman said. “We’re in the driver’s seat to be in the playoffs.”

VOLLEYBALL Sunset Conference

By Alysha Beck, The World

North Bend forward Emma Powley dribbles down the sideline during Tuesday’s match. “I know our team would fight until the very end,” Shay said. The game was emotional, not just because of the ending. North Bend can feel confident in the long term, they can compete with everybody. But in the meantime, they can celebrate one of the most exciting

soccer games the Bay Area has produced this season. “That’s the way you want your games to go,” Hood said. “I think we’re two of the top teams in the state. Our girls played with a heck of a lot of heart today. They played like champions.”

Braves tip Bandon: Reedsport kept its share of first place in the Sunset Conference by edging Bandon 25-12, 25-16, 23-25, 21-25, 15-12 on Tuesday. The Braves host Glide in a matchup of teams unbeaten in league play Thursday. Bandon almost pushed Reedsport out of its tie for first place. “They woke up,” Reedsport coach James Hixenbaugh said. “We let up in the third set. We led 16-12. They went on a run and scored a bunch of points. “They’re good. They started hitting the ball well. They were digging stuff up and playing tough.” But Reedsport was able to build a quick lead in the fifth game and held on. Gabby White had 18 kills, five blocks and four digs to lead the Reedsport attack. Mariah McGill had eight kills, Alicia Osorio added six kills

and Bailey Tymchuk had 16 digs. Kaylynn Hixenbaugh had 39 assists. Cheyenne Young had 15 kills and 14 digs and Raelyn Freitag had 14 kills and 27 digs for the Tigers. Hope Richert had 38 assists and Emily Ramos had 25 digs. The Tigers also have a key match Thursday, at Coquille. Bobcats top Devils: Myrtle Point beat visiting Coquille 23-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-22 in a Sunset Conference match Tuesday. The Bobcats were playing short-handed, but were fortunate to have Morgan Newton available after she was injured during a tournament at Cottage Grove on Saturday, coach Tami Brown said. Newton finished with 32 assists and four kills for the Bobcats. Grace Hermann had 17 kills, eight digs and two aces. Nicole Seals added 10 kills and MacKenzie Findley added eight kills. The Bobcats also were without Kayley Leslie, who has been out sick. “I’m hoping we can get everyone healthy and back for Thursday,” Brown said, referring to a key road match against Gold Beach. Wildcats sweep Panthers: Glide dominated visiting Gold Beach 25-9, 258, 25-11 to improve to 5-0 in league play.

Skyline League Hornets beat Powers: Camas Valley topped the Cruisers 25-17, 25-11, 25-22 on Tuesday. Riley Middlebrook had two aces for the Cruisers. Emilie Fandel had five kills. “Camas is playing very well,” said Powers coach Heather Shorb. “We worked very hard and didn’t give up. We had some good moments. Hopefully we will play well against New Hope on Friday.” Camas Valley improved to 7-1 and shares the league lead with Yoncalla. Monarchs top Pacific: Umpqua Valley Christian swept Pacific 25-13, 25-19, 25-16 to move into a tie with Powers for third place at 4-4. Pacific fell to 1-7.

Far West League Vikings top Lancers: Siuslaw won at South Umpqua in four games to keep its share of first place, beating the Lancers 25-14, 17-25, 25-17, 25-20. Courtney Taylor had eight kills for the Vikings, who have another critical road match Thursday at Sutherlin, a squad on a hot streak that handed Marshfield its only league loss. Siuslaw hosts the Pirates on Monday. Douglas beats Bruins: Douglas edged visiting Brookings-Harbor in five games.

Sports Beavers have high hopes for new hoops season OSU will start season without two top post players ■

BY JESSE SOWA Corvallis Gazette-Times

The Associated Press

The Chicago Blackhawks players carry out the Stanley Cup Championship banner past the Stanley Cup during a ceremony before their season-opening hockey game against Washington on Tuesday.

Blackhawks win opener THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO — Brandon Saad, Johnny Oduya and Marian Hossa scored in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks kicked off their Stanley Cup title defense with a 6-4 victory over Mikhail Grabovski and the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night in the NHL regular-season opener. Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook and Brandon Bollig also scored as Chicago won its first game for the second straight season. Corey Crawford made 28 saves, including a couple of huge stops when the Blackhawks killed off a late 5-on-3 power play. Grabovski had three goals and an assist in his first game since he signed with Washington in August. Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, but the Capitals were unable to protect a thirdperiod lead. Grabovski had consecutive power-play goals in the third, lifting Washington to a 3-2 advantage with 14:44

left. But Saad finished a beautiful give-and-go with Michal Handzus, and Oduya converted a long slap shot at 13:53 to put the Blackhawks ahead to stay. Maple Leafs 4, Canadiens 3: Tyler Bozak scored a short-handed goal and Mason Raymond netted the winner in his first game with the Maple Leafs as Toronto spoiled Montreal’s home opener. James van Riemsdyk and Dion Phaneuf also scored in a fight-filled game in which Montreal’s new enforcer George Parros was carried off on a stretcher following a bout. Toronto’s Colton Orr pulled Parros down during the fight, and the Canadiens forward’s face crashed into the ice. Lars Eller’s second goal of the game with 2:22 left brought the Canadiens within 4-3 but they couldn’t get even. Eller also set up a goal by Brendan Gallagher on the first night of the NHL regular season. The mood turned somber 2:34 into the third period when

Parros was prone on the ice. Orr had fallen and pulled down Parros, who was bleeding and looked woozy. A team of trainers from both teams spent several minutes treating him. The Canadiens said Parros sustained a concussion, but was alert and conscious and undergoing more tests. Jets 5, Oilers 4: Michael Frolik scored a pair of goals, and the Winnipeg Jets rallied to spoil Edmonton’s home opener with a 5-4 regular season-starting victory over the Oilers on Tuesday night. With 5:02 left, Eric Tangradi sent a beautiful backhand pass in front to Frolik, who snapped a 4-4 tie by directing his second goal of the night into the net before goalie Devan Dubnyk could get back across the crease. Jacob Trouba also scored and added an assist in his first NHL game for the Jets, who made their first appearance as a Winnipeg team in Edmonton since 1996. Mark Scheifele and Bryan Little also scored for the Jets, and Ondrej Pavelec made 34 saves for the win.

CORVALLIS — A multitude of factors has Craig Robinson hopeful that this season will be different than the past, when disappointment got in the way of success. Oregon State has improved team chemistry, newly found depth thanks to an influx of promising freshmen and the return of senior center Angus Brandt as the Beavers begin a new men’s basketball season with their first practice today. Robinson, in his sixth year as head coach, has a long list of players he credits with vast improvement during the offseason. The team will try to take a giant leap forward from a 2012-13 season that saw Oregon State go 14-18 and tie for 11th in the Pac-12 standings. “You’re only as good as your bottom guy, and our bottom guys are pretty good now,” Robinson said Tuesday morning as he met with the media. Brandt’s return after missing nearly all of last season with a torn knee ligament gives a big boost to team depth. Brandt, an Australian who played in just four games, was averaging 11.3 points and 8.5 rebounds before his injury. His 6-foot-10 frame looms large on both ends of the floor. Without him there last year, fellow posts found it hard to post up. His presence allows the Beavers to better spread the floor. Brandt is back to about 100 percent but Robinson will hold him out of 5-on-5

drills for a few more weeks. “I’m definitely champing at the bit to get going, but I understand where he’s coming from,” Brandt said of his coach. Junior point guard Challe Barton and sophomore wing Victor Robbins are singled out for having strong offseasons. Barton, from Sweden, becomes the starting point guard after spending most of the season playing behind Ahmad Starks, who transferred to be closer to family in Illinois. Barton has been asked to be a stronger force on offense after averaging 2.9 points while playing 17 minutes per game last season. “He’s gotten a lot more confidence. His shot looks really good. He’s accepting more of a leadership role this year,” Robinson said. “We don’t really need more scoring. We need more shots taken. He’s got to be a threat.” “The pressure’s on and I’ve just got to take it,” Barton added. The freshmen trio of guards Hallice Cooke and Malcolm Duvivier and center Chiekh N’diaye all will have the chance to make an impact. Duvivier, a guard from Canada, has Division I skills and athleticism and brings high intensity, Robinson said. N’diaye, at 7 feet, and 610 sophomore forward Daniel Gomis, could see playing time early with the suspensions of starting forwards Devon Collier and Eric Moreland that were announced Tuesday. Collier is out one game and Moreland 14 to start the season after a violation of team rules during the offseason. Adding to those absences is the graduation of post Joe Burton, who provided some offensive help but at times struggled to defend athletic

big men. Robinson says N’diaye is a natural shot blocker. “I’m not opposed to starting him early in the season and see what he can do,” the coach said. Gomis, who has yet to play a game with the Beavers, has missed the last two seasons after breaking his leg in his native Senegal in the summer of 2011. “Daniel Gomis has a knack for this game, especially defensively. He’s always around the ball and he’s fearless,” Robinson said. Sophomore forward Olaf Schaftenaar will also help fill the holes down low. The Beavers return eight players who played at least 10 minutes a game last season, led by senior guard Roberto Nelson. Nelson, an all-conference honorable mention pick, will again be asked to carry a heavy offensive load as he did last year in averaging 17.8 points, good for fifth in the Pac-12. “I just want to try to maximize my potential and just try to do the best I can do,” Nelson said. Although they might choose to, Nelson and the Beavers haven’t forgotten about the nine games they lost by six points or less last season. Robinson says dropping so many close games “is the biggest catalyst for these guys doing everything at a higher level.” Nelson hopes another year of experience and players knowing their roles better will make for stronger execution. “It’s not what should I do but more what am I gonna do,” he said. “Having the seniors that we have now and the depth we have now, I think it will be a lot more easy come crunch time.”
