The most dangerous game Poachers vs. patrols — there are no winners BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World


n a dark October evening near Lakeside, Levi Harris eases his dark blue Chevy Silverado onto the shoulder of a narrow gravel logging road. Carefully stepping out of the truck, he sets his binoculars on the truck’s center console and pulls on a waterproof, camouflage jacket. It’s deer season, but the veteran Oregon state trooper isn’t hunting for a big buck — he’s looking for poachers. Harris, 36, is the senior fish and wildlife trooper at the Oregon State Police Coos Bay Area Command. As one of two full-time troopers at the office with both fish and wildlife enforcement responsibilities, he’s part of the last line of defense for the state’s game animals.

Taped-up propane stove creates a stir at North Bend boat ramp ■


NORTH BEND — An Oregon State Police bomb squad was called to the North Bend boat ramp Thursday night for what turned out to be a propane stove. Taking no chances, they blew it to smithereens with a robotmounted shotgun in a spectacular display. Detective Jon Bohanan said North Bend police received a call around 2:30 p.m. about a suspicious package at the California Street boat ramp. A woman had noticed it while walking her dogs. Officers found a plastic case, what Bohanan described as a briefcase, sealed with duct tape sitting on top of a trash can outside the women's restroom. Police quickly taped off the boat ramp parking lot and made a call to the Oregon State Police Explosives Unit in Central Point. The unit’s distinctive blue truck arrived at the boat ramp at approximately 6:30 p.m.

An elite group The agency maintains approximately 110 full-time troopers in its Fish & Wildlife Division, whose operations are primarily funded by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. Those troopers are overseen by regional supervisors in Salem, Central Point and Burns, and assigned to OSP area commands throughout the state. The Coos Bay command technically has four fish and wildlife troopers, but one of them is a supervisor, and another position is federally funded solely for marine fisheries enforcement. Harris said OSP commands along the coast tend to have better year-round staffing of fish and wildlife troopers than those east of the Cascades because of fishery enforcement needs. Division personnel go through the same academy

training as their patrol counterparts at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training in Salem. Harris is the second generation in his family to take up the mantle. “My dad is a retired game warden, so I’m sorta following in his footsteps,” he said, smiling. Fish and wildlife troopers regularly play double-duty, conducting traffic stops and serving search warrants alongside troopers in the patrol division. Because they spend so much time in the woods as part of their fish and wildlife duties, Harris said troopers in his division are also called on to enforce state and federal environmental laws. On a typical weekend, Harris said, there may be one patrol trooper and one wildlife trooper on duty for the whole Coos Bay Area Command.

Common crimes On the South Coast, rifle deer season runs the length of October, with two week-long rifle elk hunts held at the beginning of November. To hunt big game in Oregon, hunters need to purchase both a hunting license and a valid tag for the species season and area they’re hunting. Tags for certain species and areas can be purchased over the counter, while tags for other “controlled” hunts are awarded by lottery. Some of the violations troopers regularly issue citations for include unlawfully transferring a tag, shooting from a roadway and casting an artificial light — a practice known as spotlighting. “It’s such an SEE POACH | A4

North Bend sides with towing business in neighborhood spat ■


NORTH BEND — A contentious issue in a North Bend neighborhood goes back years, but does it all boil down to a misunderstanding of the choice of working in a decades-old ordinance? As has been the case throughout, it depends on who you talk to. Basically, the issue boils down to how the city of North Bend has handled a home occupation permit that it granted to North Bend Towing Company, at 1666 Meade Ave., in 1986. According to city documents from a recent appeal, the wording allows for the company to “receive phone calls and keep a tow truck at home, in the course of operating their towing business.” Some neighbors, most notably Photos by Alysha Beck, The World

Community support means community aid BY TIM NOVOTNY The World

COOS BAY — The United Way of Southwestern Oregon is looking to make a big push as they head into the final month of its biggest annual fundraiser. So far this year, the “Give Where You Live” campaign, which began in September, has raised $70,000 of its $200,000 goal. Every year since 1961, the agency has operated a fundraising campaign during the last quarter of the year to help them fund a number of community projects. The effort currently helps residents in Coos and Curry counties through 50 different services, operated through the charity’s 20 agencies. Executive Director Bill Harsh, who oversees a volunteer board of 24 members, says they are a truly local program. “Ninety-nine cents of every dollar stays in this

community. We think local people have a better idea of what the local needs are and how to address them.” Among the programs supported are the Women’s Safety and Resource Center, Salvation Army, and food and shelter programs for the homeless and hungry. It also includes community service projects, like the Day of Caring, and a Kids’ Coats and Shoes program that has helped more than 700 local elementary school children in need. “The money is used to help your friends and neighbors,” Harsh said. “(But,) it is fully dependent on local contributions and donations.” Thus, he says, there is a need for a big final push through December. Harsh says one mailing has gone out, but two more will be on the way soon. Volunteers are also spending time making brief presentations to local service clubs,

When God Says No King David, in II Samuel 7, is now living in his own house and it is a time of peace for the nation. David looks at his house and determines that he needs to build a house for God where the Ark of the Covenant would be located. He turns to the prophet Nathan and spells out his plan. The prophet tells him to go for it. That night God makes an appearance to the prophet and tells him to go back and tell David that he would not be the one who would build God’s house. It was then God established the Davidic covenant in which God promises the king that his descendants would rule in Jerusalem and that from his lineage would come the Messiah. Sometimes, God says no. But saying no does not mean He has deserted us, nor does it mean He is not pleased with us. Just as God blessed David with something better, He has something better for us. God is rich in grace and mercy. You can never out give God. Even when He says no, that too is a blessing from Him. We celebrate Thanksgiving next week. When you count your blessings, be sure to mention the “nos” that God sent to you, and thank Him for them. Come worship with us Sunday.

The most dangerous game POACH Decoy stings raise compliance rates Continued from Page A1 effective way to kill big deer,” Harris said. Because so much of the prime deer and elk habitat in the region is behind locked gates, criminal trespass is one of the most common hunting-related crimes dealt with by both law enforcement and landowners. Timber companies — the largest landowners in the region next to the federal government — regularly find themselves dealing with unwanted guests. Jim Carr, chief forester for The Campbell Group in North Bend, said his company, which purchased Menasha Forest Products in 2007, allows walk-in access on its 120,000 acres during deer and elk season but prohibits private motorized vehicles. “Partly because of the requirements we have in the Forest Practices Act to maintain roads and prevent siltation,” Carr said. In a part of the state where everyone and their brother seems to have copies of keys to timber company gates, the company has had to crack down on its contract employees. Carr said that many copies of gate keys originated with logging crews hired by Menasha, so the company now includes language in its logging contracts imposing stiff penalties for contractors who abuse access to its lands for personal purposes. “You’re there. It’s posted. You’re trespassing,” he said. Duane Dungannon, state coordinator for the Oregon Hunters Association, said that ATV and motorized vehicle damage to wildlife habitat has become such a problem that his organization is paying for information about unethical off-roaders. “We now offer a $200 reward for anyone who turns in someone who has been doing that kind of damage,” he said. Wildlife and environmental crimes aren’t limited to big game hunting seasons — troopers expend plenty of man hours on game birds, as well. In addition to state regulations, migratory birds like waterfowl are also federally regulated under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Hunters are prohibited from using rifles or shotguns larger than 10-gauge or that can hold more than three shells. They’re also required to use nontoxic shot. Harris said he’s cited people for all of the above.

Hunting hunters

The decoys, which cost anywhere from $500 to $1,500 to construct, are popularly referred to as “Scruffy.” The division also maintains elk decoys, called “Bullwinkle.” Troopers place the deer within sight of heavily-traveled roadways in popular hunting areas. “We always set up in areas where we’ve had complaints or problems,” Harris said. If troopers catch someone shooting at the decoy from the road or hitting it with a spotlight, they videotape the crime and surround the vehicle. Wildlife crimes are typically handled with a written citation, but Harris said troopers will arrest anyone who attempts to flee from the scene of a decoy operation. W h e n you look at state police examples like the Keno unit near Klamath Falls, the decoy stings seem to work. The unit, which is controlled-hunt-only for rifle deer, borders the Rogue unit, which can be hunted with an over-the-counter general tag. Prior to a 2009 decoy sting, OSP estimated the hunter compliance rates for the Keno unit to fall between 60 and 70 percent, because of people killing deer in the unit and tagging them with Rogue unit tags. In response, troopers set up decoys near the unit boundary, and cited numerous people who fired on “Scruffy” without a Keno unit tag. The year after the decoy sting, state police were estimating an 85.41 percent tag compliance rate.

On the prowl

Harris grew up hunting and fishing on the South Coast. Most of the troopers in the wildlife division hunt or fish, he said. That experience is reflected in the professional courtesy he tries to extend to hunters during license checks. “If they’re hunting, I try not slam doors or make too much noise,” he said. “If they’re in their duck blind, I try to get in and get out.” To catch poachers in the act, troopers often rely on a combination of aircraft surveillance and taxidermied deer referred to as wildlife enforcement decoys.

Troopers’ day-to-day activities during hunting season closely mirror those of their in-town counterparts. Some days, they need all the help they can get. Other days, things seem eerily quiet. Oct. 12 was one of the latter. Sitting in the darkness off North Lake Road, Harris was relying on “casual contact” to interact with hunters coming out of the woods, simply by parking on the shoulder to see if anyone stopped to Beck chat. a h s ly yA ions b t Few people seemed to be comra t s illu Photo ing out of the woods as the sun dropped below the horizon.

One young hunter slowed as he neared the trooper’s truck, and Harris walked up to the man’s vehicle for a quick chat. The man’s head bobbed pleasantly as he talked with the troopers. Like many blacktail deer hunters on the South Coast in recent years, he hadn’t had any luck. Seeing nothing amiss, Harris waved him on with a smile. A few minutes later,a mud-speckled white SUV came barreling past,its driver seemingly unphased by the trooper’s presence along the roadway. Harris jumped in his truck and sped after him. Eventually, the man seemed to notice the trooper tailing him. He stopped suddenly just before an intersection and hopped out of the driver side door. Harris did the same and sprinted up to the man, who was putting a rifle case away in the back seat. The man admitted he had been hunting, but Harris didn’t have cause to ask for anything besides his driver license. A search of the man’s criminal record on the trooper’s dashboard-mounted laptop revealed only a traffic citation years prior. Like any law enforcement officer, Harris needs probable cause to stop a person or vehicle. In his case, a dead animal in the back of a truck or people actively hunting with a rifle or bow in-hand qualify. Although it may seem a risky job to regularly confront people who are known to be armed — especially without backup — Harris said he thinks his assignment is probably a bit safer than patrol. “The wildlife division has always been pretty laid back,” he said. Harris said that while patrol troopers often get nervous at the sign of a gun, the presence of firearms is a routine element of his dayto-day interactions with the public.

Poaching penalties Wildlife crimes are class A misdemeanors but can be downgraded to a violation at the arresting trooper’s discretion. Penalties typically include stiff fines and suspension of hunting privileges. Judges often also order the defendants to forfeit firearms used in the crimes. Oregon is a member of the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, an agreement that shares hunting and fishing license suspension information between 35 states. But a court order often isn’t enough to stop many career poachers. “We’re seeing more and more angling while suspended and hunting while suspended,” he said. Harris isn’t quick to judge the people he cites. He said many violators are younger people who weren’t taught proper hunting ethics. But troopers often find themselves dealing with criminals of a more sinister variety. In 2001, Coos Bay troopers dealt with one of the worst elk poaching cases in recent history when Dennis Robertson shot and wasted six bull elk off Seven Devils Road. A year later, he was the subject of a manhunt by South Coast law enforcement after he killed a Grants Pass tourist and wounded a sheriff’s deputy on the North Spit. Robertson later hung himself in his cell at the Coos County Jail while awaiting trial. Antlers from one of the bulls now hang from the rafters of the Coos Bay Area Command’s boat garage.

Deep-woods dope Harris said it’s common for fish and wildlife investigations to overlap with other felony cases. Prior to pursuing a search warrant, troopers contact state dispatchers to check if the address is the focus of another agency’s investigation. “We didn’t start doing the deconfliction checks until about two years ago,” he said. “About 50 percent of the time I called about a house, someone else would be interested in them for drugs.”

As far as drugs go, Harris said South Coast wildlife troopers have been discovering fewer marijuana growing operations in recent years. With the advent of Oregon’s medical marijuana program, most local growers have gone legitimate and moved their operations indoors. A 2000 law that restricted sales of psuedoephedrine also curtailed the amount of methamphetamine lab debris troopers encountered in the woods. “The number of meth lab dumps just plummeted,” he said. Harris said troopers will sometimes encounter people they stop producing crude methamphetamine in 2-liter soda bottles, a process known as “shake and bake.”

Monitoring the impact

Vehicles that fired at a wildlife enforcement decoy

Bill Kinyoun is one of two wildlife biologists assigned to the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife’s Charleston office. “We’re one of only two states where our game wardens are state troopers,” he said. “It’s hard for us as biologists trying to put our finger on illegal take. “When we do our deer surveys, we look at how many bucks we have per 100 does. We have a minimum that we’d like to see.” Data compiled by the agency for a 2008 draft of its Blacktail Deer Management Plan showed troopers detected more than 200 illegal deer kills in 2005 alone. Between 1996 and 2005, troopers were dealing with an average of 741 violations a year related to blacktail deer. And those numbers could be low. Kinyoun said he thinks that blacktail deer poaching probably flies a little under the radar compared to the illegal take of elk. Based on his understanding of local deer numbers, he thinks it’s primarily does being taken illegally. “Any illegal harvest in Coos County is across the board, and is opportunistic in nature,” he said.

37 Citations issued on decoy operations

112 Wildlife enforcement decoy operations conducted statewide


Ongoing challenges Beyond catching violators in the act, fish and wildlife troopers heavily rely on the sporting community itself to generate leads. Anyone can report wildlife violators to a state police hotline for possible rewards through the Turn-In-Poachers program, a joint venture of the state police and Oregon Hunters Association. Duane Dungannon said the program was initially funded a quarter-century ago with money from OHA and Leupold & Stevens, a Beavertonbased maker of rifle scopes. “Now the program is pretty much entirely selfsufficient because of the amount of restitution ordered to be paid by convicted violators to the fund,” he said. OHA mails out TIP stickers to its members every time they renew, and members of many chapters have helped hang diamond-shaped metal signs in public forestlands. “We pay out rewards averaging about $13,000 total a year,” Dungannon said. Those rewards can be much-needed motivation for witnesses to come forward, and Harris said that can make all the difference in the world. “We don’t want anyone to get in any kind of danger or confront anyone, but call us promptly and get a license plate, if possible, of the vehicles involved,” he said. Ultimately, troopers often depend on eyewitness cooperation for the leverage they need to crack a case. Near the end of his shift, the relative quiet of the truck cab was broken by an electronic voice. There had been a wreck near Reedsport, and the patrol trooper on duty that Saturday night was coordinating with dispatch to find out whether another agency could respond instead. That sort of support is rarely available for law enforcement officers in Harris’ line of work. “If someone’s murdered, you have a team of investigators working on it,” he said. “If a deer’s killed, it’s one, maybe two officers, tops, working on it.” As the senior trooper drove silently toward the lights of North Bend, the radio crackled with the sound of law enforcement in town changing shifts.

A fundamental reinvention Our view What Coos County needs is a vision — and effective communication.

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

In our continuing pursuit of economic alternatives that capitalize on our existing assets, we stumbled upon something this week — a study commissioned by the South Coast Development Council Inc. back in 2010, called the Coos County SDAT. The council had asked the American Institute of Architects for a Sustainable Design Assessment Team to help the county address key challenges with its economy, its planning and its future. Such teams have helped dozens of communities across the country. This team of consultants

worked with local officials, technical experts, students and residents. Their efforts culminated in a three-day public meeting, after which the consultants wrote their report. The assessment team found lots of potential in the county by way of its natural resources and recreational opportunities. The report also found weaknesses, including a lack of trust surrounding environmental issues, unproductive fingerpointing and a lack of integrated planning. “In short, the region is in need of a fundamental reinvention to ensure its long-

term vitality,” the report says. Some would say that the study falls short because it doesn’t offer specific suggestions: build LNG, attract some specific manufacturing entity, get a factory built. But that would be missing the message from the assessment team. The message is — find your collective vision. “Today, Coos County represents an economically struggling region with an identity crisis,” the study says. With large-scale timber production of the past virtually out of the picture, and with heavy industry a failed dream, the report strongly

urges Coos County residents to find another path. But to do that, we have to begin a serious conversation — between cities and between each other. And we need to start listening to each other. “Some residents see a divide between sustainability and maintaining and expanding the traditional natural resource based economy of Coos County,” the report states. “This is a false choice, and the community leaders and media needs to show it for what it is.” Next week, we’ll tell you what’s happened with this report.

Cheers Jeers

& After our jobs I

Congrats to the Marshfield Times, student newspaper at Marshfield High School. After three years of being the bridesmaid and never the bride, the Times broke out of the finalists field to earn its first Pacemaker award from the National Scholastic Press Association. Think Pulitzer for the notyet-professional-adult set. Well done, folks. We see you in our rear view mirror.

After our jobs II The future media competition field could get even more crowded if Winter Lakes High School students get their radio license from the Federal Communications Commission. School Principal Tony Jones sees it as a great opportunity for students to learn new skills and serve the community. Oregon Public Broadcasting, here they come!

Location,location, location Good to hear that the Bandon area is breaking out of a four-year slump in the residential real estate market. Local real estate agents say buyers are coming back and interest rates are dropping. That’s a combination for success and welcome news after some pretty lean years. Welcome home, buyers.

Supermarket woes The owner of the Ray’s grocery stores in Bandon and Port Orford, C&K Market Inc., declared bankruptcy this week. Those stores will remain open for awhile,but the company will close 16 others, laying off 20 percent of its workers. But what’s more — the company’s mishandling of the employee pension plan by making bad loans brought the federal labor department down on them. With more than $3 million to pay back to the pension plan, bankruptcy comes as no surprise.

Burnt offerings Man apparently making peanut brittle in his Tioga building apartment. Man sets said peanut brittle on fire. Man throws flaming brittle out the window. Flaming flung brittle prompts bystanders to report an explosion. Police arrive, put two and two together and shake their heads. The story goes statewide,once again making Coos Bay famous. We are so awesome!

Pacific Power thanks the county It was very valuable for our Pacific Power executive team to visit last week. We all gained new insights into what is happening and how we can help. Special thanks to John Knutson, president of the South Coast Development Council; Timm Slater, of the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce and Commissioner John Sweet for helping us understand the challenges and opportunities on the horizon for the entire community. We strengthened our partnership with the SCDC and also ORCCA, in both financial and in-kind support, to ensure both organizations are successful. We also had a warm reception from the Port of Coos Bay and Jordan Cove Energy officials where we learned a lot about those projects. Thanks also to Coos Bay Mayor Crystal Shoji for your warm welcome, and to Jeff Precourt and Larry Campbell of The World for the lively exchange of ideas. I look forward to our next visit.

Chasing a health care dream The history of health care, and health insurance, is complicated. As the economy has changed, technology has advanced and national responsibilities have become more complex, we’ve moved through various models of how to pay for health care. We now have a hodgepodge of feefor-service, pre-paid, employer benefit and good-luck-you’reon-your-own. And God knows, I have been through all of the above. And for decades, the health insurance industry, intent on maximizing profits for shareholders, has often desecrated the mission of insurance: Instead of providing medical care at a time of need, insurance companies have denied claims and refused coverage. A hundred years ago, Theodore Roosevelt proposed the first national health care system. Health care reform and the expansion of existing coverage has been on the agenda of every American president since FDR. What Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Bill Clinton could not

achieve — a national system of health insurance — Barack Obama did. A n d O b a m a ’s expansion of Medicare and Medicaid builds DONNA on legislation BRAZILE supported by Columnist Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. Experts consider the Affordable Care Act to be moderate and rather American in approach. More importantly, as Alan S. Binder writes in The Wall Street Journal: “The three central elements of ObamaCare are insurance reform, getting (most of) the uninsured covered, and containing the upward spiral in medicalcare costs. Each remains in place.” This despite the botched rollout. We all have horror stories about friends or family members betrayed by their health insurers, or denied coverage, or charged escalating, bankruptcy-inducing premiums, resulting in diseases

undiagnosed, illnesses allowed to debilitate, treatable conditions left untreated. And worse — death. Obama made a rhetorical slip when he said, “if you like your policy, you can keep it.” Though true for about 97.5 percent of the insured population, Obama probably should have added a Jon Stewart-like qualification: You can keep your health plan, unless it no longer meets the minimum requirements, or your insurance company stops offering it — because it was bad to begin with. But Republican leaders are not looking to fix any flaws in the ACA — they want to dismantle it. Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., has introduced a “fix” to canceled insurance policies — with the newspeak name “Keep Your Plan.” It’s a gift to the insurance industry, exempting millions from the protections of Obamacare. One person compared it to offering to fix a leaky roof by stripping it off completely. The media, and Republicans, distorted (as usual) the import of former President Clinton’s comment that the government should

keep its pledge. First, he wasn’t urging a reluctant Obama to act. He was agreeing with Obama,who had already said he would do that. Second, the comment was just 31 words out of a 335 statement that emphasized, “The big lesson is we’re better off with this program than we are without it.” During October, the first month, 106,185 Americans enrolled in the health insurance marketplaces (not counting those added to Medicaid). While that’s lower than hoped for, it’s 863 times more than Romney’s plan enrolled in the same time period: a total of 123. Further, 26 million people have made individual shopping tours of the Obamacare website. As with “Romneycare,” the majority are expected to enroll later, rather than early. President Obama understands why people are frustrated. And now he must take the lead to fix it. And yes, keep his promise and work harder to ensure his policies work to help Americans grow, prosper and stay healthy in the process.

Decision on memorial cross will follow Supreme Court cues COOS BAY — The City of Coos Bay is waiting to make a decision on the fate of the Vietnam War Memorial in Mingus Park until a related federal case is resolved. The city announced Thursday afternoon that the Supreme Court’s decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway, the case involving the First Amendment's establishment clause, must happen before the Coos Bay city council resumes discussions regarding the memorial’s status. The city anticipates a decision from the Supreme Court by June 2014. The cross originally came into the spotlight in February when the city received a letter from the Freedom from Religion Foundation requesting that the memorial be removed. The foundation said the presence of a cross was unconstitutional due to its

endorsement of a specific religion. The American Civil Liberties Union also sent the city a letter requesting that the cross be removed. Then in August, an improvised explosive device was detonated at the memorial. Less than two weeks later, another improvised explosive device was placed in the Prayer Chapel in downtown Coos Bay. The two explosives sparked an FBI investigation of both as civil rights violations. Both incidents are still under investigation. Anyone with information is being asked to call the Coos Bay Police Department at 541269-8911 or the FBI’s Portland office at 503-2244181. The FBI’s Eugene office can be reached during normal business hours at 541-343-5222.

South Coast

By Lou Sennick, The World

A suspicious package is hit with a water shot and destroyed Thursday night at the Califorinia Street boat ramp. The robot is from the OSP bomb squad out of Central Point and was called by North Bend police to the ramp after a suspicious package was reported. The case with what appeared to be duct tape was on top of a trash can at the rest rooms.

PACKAGE Robot destroyed suspect package Continued from Page A1 OSP hazardous device technicians promptly unloaded its precious cargo: a Remotec ANDROS bombdisposal robot. A technician inside the truck’s trailer remotely piloted the robot up to the restroom. After examining the package, law enforcement officers decided to destroy it. Bay Cities Ambulance and North Bend Fire Department personnel stood by as the robot carried the case out into the middle of the parking lot and gently placed it on the ground.

NEIGHBORS Old zoning language blamed Continued from Page A1 Susanna Noordhoff, have felt that the company has been exceeding the boundaries of that permit. It has created angst and anger from both sides as the complaint process made its way through City Hall. Noordhoff, who lives one block away from the home on Meade, has argued that there are times during the day where two tow trucks are present. She has presented the city with pictures and documents that she believes backs her claim. That all led to the formal complaint which kicked off a long and winding appeals process. One day this past January, City Planner David Voss received a report of two trucks at the site and went to investigate. He determined, after talking with the owners, that this was a brief and temporary situation. He informed Noordhoff that he would not be issuing a violation notice. There had been other complaints, but they all seemed to come to a head in this decision. A decision that would be appealed first to the planning commission and then, earlier this month, to the city council. In both cases, Voss’ decision was upheld. “Now David Voss, who has the power and the duty to enforce, is being allowed not to do his job by the action of the city council,” Noordhoff said, after the most recent decision. “Is it, or is it not, OK to have two tow trucks? It is not supported by the zoning ordinance. They don’t care, they don’t want to hear it.” That’s not quite the case, says City Administrator Terence O’Connor. He says it is a situation that is similar to a police officers discretion, where two different drivers pulled over for the exact same infraction may get different results based on situa-

Shortly before 7 p.m., the robot fired a payload of water, propelled by a blank 12-gauge shotgun shell, at the case, destroying it without incident. According to Officer Ryan Doyle, further investigation revealed the case had contained a small camp stove. Police say the incident is not being investigated as a criminal matter, and the boat ramp is open for public use.

tions at the time. “Some of what happened with Ms. Noordhoff and Amatisto Towing, I think, is a product of old language in our zoning and municipal code that probably stretches back to the ’50s,” O’Connor said this week. “Not everything is black and white. You have to apply reason and logic and judgment to claims like that, and in this particular case he (Voss) made a judgment call, took it to the planning commission, planning commission said ‘seems reasonable to us.’” It still doesn’t seem reasonable to Noordhoff, who is weighing her options following this most recent setback. Although, she says, she isn’t about to just let things go. “I’m not going to put the camera away. When I bought the house on this street it was not with the expectation that the city would allow a tow truck company to operate six trucks through the neighborhood,” she added. “They need a commercial property and it can’t be on Meade Avenue.” For O’Connor, however, it all comes back to the unemotional facts of the case. And the wording. “The conditional use says they can keep a tow truck, well, by having trucks come and go is that the same as keeping? The whole issue is, was the right call made for the right reasons? The city council said, in their perspective, ‘yes, the right call was made for the right reasons.’”

Senate Democrats curb filibuster, risk future problems

D I G E S T Ex-hospital exec. to oversee Cover Oregon

Convicted California serial killer gets death SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — A judge sentenced a man to death Friday in the decadesold killings of four women with matching initials, saying the serial killer has “made this world a worse place.” Marin County Superior Court Judge Andrew Sweet called 79-year-old Joseph Naso an “evil and disturbed man” as he issued the sentence, the Marin Independent Journal reported. Jurors had recommended the death penalty. The former photographer was convicted of strangling four prostitutes in Northern California with matching initials: Roxene Roggasch, Carmen Colon, Pamela Parsons and Tracy Tafoya. Naso represented himself at trial, often coming off as confused and ornery. He called five witnesses, but did not testify himself.

$40M request for wildfire costs deferred GRANTS PASS (AP) — The full Legislature will take up the Oregon Department of Forestry’s request for an extra $40 million to cover record wildfire spending this year when it convenes in February. The legislative Emergency Board in Salem only has $30 million available to cover spending when the Legislature is not in session, so it had to refer the issue to the full Legislature, E-Board member Rep. Peter Buckley, D-Ashland, said Friday. The board did approve a $2 million appropriation out of a special fund to cover air tankers and helicopters. The department had to seek the extra money after going through a record $122 million fighting big wildfires this year, department spokesman Dan Postrel said.

Ore. restricts pesticides in bee die-offs SALEM (AP) — The Oregon Department of Agriculture is restricting two pesticides implicated in bee die-offs this summer in Wilsonville and Hillsboro. Products that contain the two ingredients will be required to carry Oregon-specific labels, and the department is asking the Environmental Protection Agency if national restrictions are needed. In June, about 50,000 bumblebees were found dead and dying in a Target parking lot in Wilsonville under linden trees that had been sprayed. Hundreds of bees were found dead days later in downtown Hillsboro. Because of that, department Director Katy Coba told state legislators Thursday, the pesticides will not be allowed to be applied to linden and basswood trees or other members of their genus, Tilia.

Biologist Mario Moscatelli takes photographs from trash floating on the polluted waters of the Canal do Fundao in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Oct. 23. Moscatelli, who oversees the reforestation of mangrove forests along the bay, said he fears that even if the bay is cleaned up, the state will let it deteriorate after all the athletes have gone home.

Olympic groups to monitor Brazil’s polluted waters RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Olympic sports federations will be monitoring efforts to clean up the polluted waters around Rio de Janeiro to prevent health risks to athletes at the 2016 Games. An Associated Press report this week showed nearly 70 percent of Rio’s sewage is untreated and dumped into iconic beach areas like Copacabana and Ipanema and picturesque Guanabara Bay. Those waters will host several of Rio’s events at the Olympics and Paralympics. FINA, the world governing body of swimming, said Friday its sports medicine committee would check water conditions before the games. “A test event will be conducted some months in advance, in the same waters and under the same conditions,” FINA said in a statement to the AP. “On this occasion, the Rio 2016 organizing committee must present a certificate of water quality in accordance to Brazilian law.” FINA’s marathon swimming event will be held off Copacabana.Those waters are also the venue for the swimming portion of the triathlon. In bid documents, Rio organizers pledged to Olympic officials that the pollution would be cleaned up after decades of neglect and poor planning. In data obtained by the AP, the measurement of fecal coliform bacteria in Copacabana went up 16 times above

the Brazilian government’s satisfactory level as recently as three weeks ago. The Rodrigo de Freitas, the venue for rowing and canoeing located in the heart of the city, experiences periodic fish die-offs that leave thousands floating in the briny lake. Matt Smith, executive director of rowing’s world governing body, said Rio officials blame heavy rains and the city’s sewer system for the dead fish. Smith called the health risk to rowers “low” but cautioned about possible problems. “We are working on contingency scenarios but if, for any reason, we have a massive rainfall just before or during the 2016 Games, we risk cancellation to ensure healthy conditions for the rowers,” he said in an email to AP. Smith said the last four Olympic regattas had been held on artificial courses where water quality was easy to control.The last natural lake was 1996 in Atlanta, he said. The most deeply rooted problem is Guanabara Bay, which will hold sailing events. The bay has become a polluted dump where few locals — except the poor from Rio’s neighboring slums — dare to swim. “We’re for sure concerned about it, and we’re in discussion with the organizing committee about it,” said Jerome Pels, chief executive officer of sailing’s world governing body. “We know

60 Senate votes needed to filibuster, or delay, legislation, it raised an obvious question: Might a future Senate majority, hitting obstacles advancing a president’s agenda, ram through changes weakening filibusters against bills too? In control of both the White House and Congress someday, Senate Republicans might be tempted to force a filibuster change to cover legislation and use it, for example, to repeal Obama’s health care law. “I don’t think this is a time to be talking about reprisals,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said after the vote. He said later, “The solution to this problem is at the ballot box. We look forward to having a great election in November 2014.” McConnell spoke after the Senate voted 52-48 to allow a simple majority vote to end filibusters, instead of the 60 votes required since 1975. The change affects nominees for top federal agency and judicial appointments, but not Supreme Court justices. Republicans had warned repeatedly that should they win Senate control, they will happily use the diluted filibuster to win Senate approval for future nominees by GOP presidents that under past standards Democrats might have blocked. “The silver lining is that there will come a day when the roles are reversed,” said Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He warned that when his party wins a Senate majority they likely will apply the 51-vote filibuster threshold to a Republican president’s Supreme Court nominees.

with reports we are getting from sailors who are training there — just from the visual view of the water — that already there are some concerns. ... It’s on our radar.” Rio organizers have been pressed by the International Olympic Committee to speed the pace of construction. Cleaning the water could add to delays in preparing for the games, which will cost about $15 billion in public and private money. “Rio 2016 can guarantee beyond any doubt that no athlete, official or member of the Olympic family will be put at risk,” Rio organizers said in a statement to AP. “The health and welfare of the athletes is always our top priority.” Rio organizers added that water quality was the responsibility of the state government.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats quickly enjoyed the first fruits of a milestone Senate vote making it harder for the Republican minority to block President Barack Obama’s nominations: They swiftly ended a GOP filibuster against one of his top judicial selections and prepared to do the same for two others. Over the longer term, they might regret what they did and how they did it, Republicans and others are warning. When Democrats muscled the changes through Thursday over the opposition of every GOP senator, it helped heighten Congress’ already high level of partisan animosity. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., used a process that let Democrats unilaterally weaken the filibuster by simple majority vote, rather than the two-thirds margin usually used for major changes in chamber rules, which would have required GOP support. “If the majority can change the rules, then there are no rules,” said veteran Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has resisted similar changes in the past. “It puts a chill on the entire U.S. Senate.” Such comments suggested a further erosion in the mutual trust the two parties would need to tackle sensitive, large-scale issues like still-massive budget deficits and a tax system overhaul. The tensions also won’t help Congress’ efforts early next year to avoid another government shutdown and prevent a federal default, twin disputes that the two parties struggled to resolve this fall. And even though Thursday’s change left intact the

PORTLAND (AP) — Gov. John Kitzhaber is bringing in executive help to get Oregon’s troubled health insurance exchange going. The governor said Friday that former Providence Health System Chief Executive Greg Van Pelt will “lend his expertise and provide an independent, outsider’s view of Cover Oregon.” The exchange’s online enrollment system was not ready to launch on schedule in October, and the organization still hasn’t enrolled a single person through a paper-based backup system. Kitzhaber also said that Dr. Bruce Goldberg, director of the Oregon Health Authority, will oversee the application and enrollment process. Oregon has received about 30,000 paper applications. Kitzhaber said the moves will free up Cover Oregon Executive Director Rocky King to focus on getting the website working.

Nation Senate panel advances Yellen’s bid to lead Fed WASHINGTON (AP) — A Senate panel on Thursday advanced Janet Yellen’s nomination to lead the Federal Reserve, setting up a final vote in the full Senate after lawmakers return from a twoweek Thanksgiving break. The Senate Banking Committee approved her nomination on a 14-8 vote. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-V.Wa., was the only Democrat to oppose Yellen’s nomination. Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Mark Kirk of Illinois supported her. Yellen’s path to confirmation also became easier Thursday when the full Senate voted to change its rules for approving all presidential nominees other than Supreme Court selections. Now a simple majority will be required, instead of 60 votes. Republicans could still try to delay the final vote to focus attention on other issues. For example, Sen. Lindsey Graham has threatened to hold up nominations for government positions until survivors of last year’s deadly attack on the diplomatic post in Libya appear before Congress. But Democrats control 55 votes in the chamber, so such tactics could easily be overcome. Yellen was nominated by President Barack Obama in October to succeed Ben Bernanke, whose second four-year term as chairman will end Jan. 31. She would be the first woman to lead the Fed and the first Democrat to do so since Paul Volcker stepped down in 1987. She made clear at the committee’s hearing last week that she’s prepared to support the Fed’s extraordinary efforts to bolster the economy until there are clear signs of a sustained rebound and further improvement in the job market. As a result, the Fed’s lowrate policies are expected to continue under her leadership. Yellen has been a close Bernanke ally, first as president of the San Francisco regional Fed bank, and then since 2010 as vice chair of the Fed’s board in Washington.

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market brushed past another milestone on Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed above 1,800 for the first time, capping seven straight weeks of gains. The broader index is on track for its best performance in 15 years as a combination of solid corporate earnings, a strengthening economy and easy-money policies from the Federal Reserve draw investors to stocks. Stocks have also gained because they offer an attractive alternative to bonds, where interest rates remain close to all-time lows.

“You can’t really get better returns other than in the stock market,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital. “It’s been a quality run-up in stocks.” The S&P 500 index rose 8.91 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,804.76. The index has advanced 26.5 percent in 2013. If it finishes at that level, it would be its strongest year since a 26.7 percent gain in 1998. The Dow Jones industrial average also continued its upward march after finishing above 16,000 for the first time Thursday. The index gained 54.78 points,or 0.3 percent,to 16,064.77.

Arizona debacle spotlights child-welfare agencies PHOENIX (AP) — A scandal in which 6,000 child-abuse complaints in Arizona were filed away and never investigated illustrated what advocates say is a tragically common problem across the U.S.: Many childprotection agencies have crushing workloads and inadequate oversight. In some cases, those flaws have led to deaths and criminal charges against social workers. “This is a system that years ago was dubbed a poor system for poor people, and very often the resources are not there to do this very difficult and very important work,” said Dr. Howard

Dubowitz, a pediatrician who studies child protection policies at the University of Maryland Medical Center. “The notion that this is a system that is nicely equipped to fulfill its mandate is often a dream that some of us are hanging onto.” Arizona officials promised prompt action after it was disclosed Thursday that over the past four years, a team at the state Child Protective Services agency tried to cope with the heavy workload by overlooking thousands of complaints to the statewide child-abuse hotline. Under state law, all reports generat-

Evolution debate again engulfs Texas Board of Ed AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Long-simmering ideological objections to teaching evolution in Texas boiled over at a late-night meeting, as the Board of Education extended preliminary approval of new science textbooks but held up one biology tome because of alleged factual errors. With midnight looming, some board members on Thursday singled out a textbook by Pearson Education, one of America’s largest publishers. They voiced questions about the book’s assertions on natural selection, noting that the theory of evolution is only part of the explanation for how life developed on Earth. After a lengthy — sometimes testy — debate, the board voted to have three of its members pick a trio of outside experts to scrutinize the book.

If the issues can be resolved in four weeks, it will win approval. If not, the book will be rejected or returned to the board for consideration at its January meeting. The board took a second vote Friday afternoon confirming its previous decision without further discussion. What Texas decides is important nationally because the state is so large that many books prepared for publication there also are marketed elsewhere around the country. Textbook and classroom curriculum battles have long raged in Texas pitting creationists — those who see God’s hand in the creation of the universe — against academics who worry about religious and political ideology trumping scientific fact. At issue this time are pro-

posed high school textbooks that could be used statewide starting next school year and through 2022. A 2011 state law means school districts can choose their own books and don’t have to adhere to a list recommended by the Board of Education, but most have continued to use boardapproved books. Publishers submitted proposed textbooks this summer, but committees of Texas volunteer reviewers — some nominated by creationists who are current and former Board of Education members — raised objections. One argued that creationism based on biblical texts should be taught in science classes, while others objected that climate change wasn’t as settled a scientific matter as some of the proposed books said.

ed via the hotline must be investigated. So far, authorities re-examining the cases have identified at least 125 in which children were later alleged to have been abused. No deaths have been connected to the lapses. In Arizona, CPS has long suffered from what defenders say is understaffing and overwork. The number of abuse and neglect reports requiring investigation has risen 16 percent in the five years ending in March, according to the agency, while the number of children in foster care or other out-of-home oversight has surged from about

9,000 to nearly 15,000. Meanwhile, the number of CPS workers has remained essentially flat, with the agency struggling with 20 percent annual turnover. The 1,000 caseworkers assigned to child-welfare investigations have caseloads 77 percent above the standard, according to CPS. Carter is asking for an additional 350 workers in the coming budget. The debacle has led to a new round of criticism of CPS and demands for Carter’s resignation from some Democrats, but the governor, a fellow Republican, is standing by him.

51 dead in grocery roof collapse in Latvia

The Coast Guard Cutter Healy breaking ice in the Arctic Ocean near Barrow, Alaska, in 2006. The U.S. will assert its sovereignty in the Arctic, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Friday, even as Russia, China and other nations stake claims and expand their use of the icy waters for military exercises and transit.

Hagel says nations must avoid conflict in Arctic HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) — The U.S. will assert its sovereignty in the Arctic, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Friday, even as Russia, China and other nations stake claims and expand their use of the icy waters for military exercises and transit. Speaking at a security forum, Hagel said energy exploration in the largely untapped Arctic region could heighten international tensions, but that countries must work together to avoid conflict. “We will remain prepared to detect, deter, prevent and defeat threats to our homeland and we will continue to exercise U.S. sovereignty in and around Alaska,” Hagel said, as he unveiled the Pentagon’s new Arctic strategy. With a nod to the increased interest in the Arctic’s lucrative oil and gas deposits, he added: “Throughout human history, mankind has raced to discover the next frontier. And time after time, discovery was swiftly followed by conflict. We cannot erase this

history. But we can assure that history does not repeat itself in the Arctic.” Hagel’s comments came as the military finalized plans to expand operations in the vast waters of the Arctic, where melting ice caps are opening sea lanes and giving nations like Russia greater access to the oil and gas deposits. But it will take money and resources for the U.S. to fill the wide gaps in satellite and communications coverage, add deep-water ports and buy more ships that can withstand the frigid waters or break through the ice. Hagel acknowledged the budget pressures, but he said the U.S. must map out its long-range plans despite the ongoing “deep and abrupt” spending cuts. There are no cost or budget estimates yet. But by the end of this year, the Navy will complete plans that lay out what the U.S. needs to do to increase communications, harden ships and negotiate international agreements so that nations will be able to track traffic in the Arctic and

conduct search-and-rescue missions. In his speech, Hagel said the U.S. will remain prepared to defend itself from threats in the region, preserve freedom of transit across the seas, plan for gradual upgrades to the fleet, improve mapping and understanding of the environment, and expand military ties with other Arctic nations. He also said the U.S. will be ready to respond to any natural or man-made disasters in the Arctic, and will work with other nations and groups to protect the fragile environment. President Barack Obama in May unveiled a 13-page U.S. strategy for the Arctic, asserting that nations must protect the region’s fragile environment and keep it free from conflict. At the same time, however, the U.S. wants to make sure it is not left behind as countries like Russia, China, Canada and Norway map out plans ranging from gas and oil exploration to research and military exercises.

RIGA, Latvia (AP) — As Latvian rescue workers searched Friday for bodies in the rubble of a supermarket collapse that killed dozens, speculation about the cause focused on a garden and a playground being installed on the grass- and gravelcovered roof. The death toll from the Thursday evening rush-hour roof collapse at the Maxima supermarket in Latvia’s capital had risen to at least 51, The Associated Press including three firefighters, Rescue workers carry a stretcher with a victim outside the Maxima police said.

Philippine death toll rises above 5K MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The death toll from one of the strongest typhoons on record has risen above 5,000 and is likely to climb further, although recovery efforts are beginning to take hold, Philippine officials said Friday. Interior Secretary Mar Roxas said 4,919 people were killed on Leyte, Samar and nearby islands in the Eastern Visayas region. Civil defense chief Eduardo del Rosario said 290 others died in other parts of the central and southern Philippines. The regions were battered two weeks ago by fierce winds and tsunami-like storm surges from Typhoon Haiyan, locally called Yolanda. Del Rosario said there were 1,611 people still missing. “That is the sad record of Yolanda’s pas-

sage through our country,” Roxas said. But he added that “The worst is over.” He likened the region to a patient that has been moved out of the emergency room into an intensive care unit. “We have overcome the most difficult part,” he said. “In the first week we can say we were in the emergency room ... this second week we are now in the ICU, still critical but stabilized.” He said the hard-hit Leyte provincial capital of Tacloban reported 1,725 dead. “I believe this number in Tacloban city is not yet final,” he said. Most of the bodies have been buried in mass graves, many of them unidentified, he said. “It is possible that some of the missing are among the unidentified,” he said.

The Bulldogs will face Cottage Grove, a team they lost to 39-38 earlier this season, in the Class 4A semifinals at Autzen Stadium today.

Seniors lead Bulldogs into semifinals BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

NORTH BEND — Thirty-one wins, five losses. That’s the North Bend football team’s record over the past three season with its current group of seniors. As they head up to Eugene to face Cottage Grove in the Class 4A semifinals today, they can take solace knowing their continued success didn’t come easy. “It just shows you what you can do with hard work,” lineman Tim West said. These North Bend seniors started as freshmen with 11. Over the past four years, the numbers have whittled their way down to five players: Mason Laird, Zack Hawk, Zach Wallace, Ty Roane and West.

Blazers beat Chicago Bulls lose Rose to injury on right knee during game ■

PORTLAND (AP) — Derrick Rose injured his right knee Friday night and the Chicago Bulls star, who sat out last season following surgery on his other knee, did not return during a 98-95 loss to the streaking Portland Trail Blazers. Wesley Matthews had a seasonhigh 28 points and Damian Lillard added 20 to help the Trail Blazers run their winning streak to nine games. Rose led the Bulls with 20 points, five rebounds and three assists but was assisted to the locker room with 3:20 remaining in the third quarter. The 2011 NBA MVP tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed last season while recovering from surgery. The top pick in the 2008 draft and a three-time All-Star, Rose was averaging 15.4 points this season. He will have an MRI in Los Angeles today. “Hopefully, it’s nothing serious,” teammate Taj Gibson said. “He’s a strong guy. He worked extremely hard this summer trying to get his body right, working out every day.” Carlos Boozer had 16 points and Luol Deng added 15 points and 14 rebounds for Chicago. Nicolas Batum scored 17 points for Portland, on its longest winning streak since the 2007-08 season. Robin Lopez had 13 points and 16 rebounds.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 13 points on 4-of-20 shooting. The game was tied at 88 before Kirk Hinrich made two baskets to give the Bulls a 95-91 lead with three minutes left. But then Batum knocked down a 3-pointer, Matthews hit a jumper and Aldridge made two free throws to pull it out for the Blazers. The Bulls led by 20 in the second quarter but were outscored 34-9 in the third as Portland stormed back and took the lead. Portland was coming off a 4-0 road trip that included a 97-87 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday, but the Blazers looked as though they were going to get blown out in the first half. Chicago jumped out to an early lead and was up 51-31 late in the second quarter before taking a 59-44 advantage into the break. Aldridge was barely a factor, missing nine of his 10 field goal attempts in the first half. Portland came out strong in the third, erasing the deficit and taking the lead when Mo Williams hit a 3-pointer. The Blazers entered the final quarter with a 78-71 advantage. Portland shot 51 percent in the quarter while Chicago was 4 for 12. “We didn’t change any schemes,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “We just played harder, played better, played with more focus, more intensity, more attitude.” The Bulls had won five straight before losing to Denver 97-87 on Thursday night.

slasher. They’re used to it from back when they were sharing carries as freshmen. And since they each play both ways, they don’t mind getting a breather every once and awhile. “It’s good to get a break,” Hawk said. “I don’t think (sharing time) is a bad thing. Especially when we have different running styles. That’s hard for any defense to stop.” Hawk also has shown his leadership right before his team gets on the field. In the tunnel heading to the field, Hawk leads in a prayer as teammates hold each other’s hands. Hawk recites a verse. The entire team, seniors on down, repeats it back to him in unison. It’s that kind of unity that really makes year in school irrelevant in Bulldog football.

Monica Vaughn finished a standout fall golf season at Arizona State University by tying for third place overall in the Pac-12 preview tournament at Kailua Kona, Hawaii. Vaughn shot a career-low 4under 69 in the final round, the best score of the day, to finish the three-round event at 6-under par. In the process, she helped the No. 6 Sun Devils place fourth behind No. 2 USC, No. 1 UCLA and No. 5 Washington. Vaughn, who graduated from Reedsport Community Charter School last spring, played in all five fall tournaments for the Sun Devils. Vaughn also was Arizona State’s top player at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational in Austin, Texas, where the Sun Devils finished second as a team, one of two tournaments where they were runners-up. Vaughn was under-par in two of the three rounds and finished at 5-under ovrall in the event, leading Arizona State to a season-best team total of 16-under. She was second for Arizona State and 13th overall in the Mason Rudolph Women’s Championship tournament at Franklin, Tenn., where the Sun Devils placed second as a team. Vaughn finished the tournament at 2-over par. In the Schooner Fall Preview at Norman, Okla., Vaughn was third among the Sun Devils and tied for 36th overall at 14-over. Arizona State tied for third. She was fifth for the Sun Devils in the opening Dale McNamara Fall Preview in Tulsa, Okla., at 15over. Marshfield graduate Lauren McGowne was named freshman of the year in the Cascade Collegiate Conference after a fabulous freshman volleyballl season for Southern Oregon University. McGowne finished with 890 assists as a setter. She became the team’s exclusive setter early in the season and finished the year with an average of 32.9 assists per match. Ten of her final 16 matches she had over 40 assists. The Raiders finished with a 1710 record but were eliminated from NAIA tournament contention in the CCC tournament, losing to the College of Idaho. McGowne, who now turns her attention to track, where she will be a heptathlete, was one of six former Marshfield teammates competing on college teams this fall. Hannah Olson finished her first year at Clackamas Community College by earning second-team honors on the NWAACC South Region All-Star team. Olson and the Cougars are currently playing at the NWAACC tournament after a 7-3 finish in the South Region. Clackamas lost its opening match to Blue Mountain on Friday morning, but then stayed alive in the consolation bracket by beating South Region rival Chemeketa in the afternoon. The middle blocker had five kills in the two-set win. Along with Olson, fellow Marshfield graduate Kara (Young) Potts finished on the second team for the South Region. Potts finished off her sophomore season with Southwestern Community College as an outside hitter and led the team with 220 kills in 19 matches.

I think we’re prepared this time more than ever,” Wallace said. “We’re all dialed in and I think we’ll get them.” Regardless of the outcome, tonight after the final buzzer will get emotional. If they win, the Bulldogs are headed to the state championship for the second straight year, taking out their mortal enemy Lions to get there. If they lose, the dream of winning a state title is over, the finish line at Autzen stadium for the Class of 2014. Either way, the seniors will certainly be emotional. Hawk anticipates crying win or lose. The other seniors admit it will be tough to keep their composure. But for some reason, Laird says he hasn’t cried for five years and doesn’t expect to start now. When asked if they’d thought about doing anything to celebrate, win or lose, just as the class of 2014? “We’re really close but we haven’t thought about it honestly. I’ve never really though about it. I’m so focused on the season I don’t think about doing anything outside of it,” Laird said, adding, “This isn’t a last game. We still got one more.”

Sports Webber enters final race

The Associated Press

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg of Germany steers his car during practice at the Interlagos race track in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Thursday. Rosberg had the best times in practice Friday in preparation for Sunday’s season finale.

Rosberg is fastest in rain SAO PAULO (AP) — Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg was fastest in the second practice for Formula One’s seasonending Brazilian Grand Prix on Friday, edging Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull teammate Mark Webber on a wet Interlagos track. Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumacher’s 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. Rosberg timed 1 minute, 27.306 seconds in the afternoon session at the 2.6-mile track in Sao Paulo, 0.225 ahead of Vettel and 0.286 in front of Webber, who is competing in his last F1 race at the Brazilian GP. The Australian driver, who will join Porsche’s endurance program, has won two of the last four races at Interlagos. Rosberg had been fastest in the first practice session with a lap of 1:24.781, when track conditions were better. “I had a good start into the weekend, I was very quick in the rain,” said Rosberg, who won twice this year and is sixth in the drivers’ championship. “I have higher hopes now that perhaps we can give

Red Bull a hard time this weekend.” Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton was second and Vettel was third in the morning despite briefly running off the track near the end of the session. Hamilton spun and recovered in both sessions. It rained heavily in the afternoon and drivers couldn’t switch to intermediary tires until the final minutes. “We were working on understanding the tires in both conditions,” Webber said. “We had the full wet and intermediate tires on the car and we did quite a few laps. It was a productive day in preparation for tomorrow, as we expect some more wet conditions.” More rain is expected for Saturday’s qualifying run and maybe for Sunday’s race. “We all know that the weather plays always a big role here at Interlagos and can catch you out,” Rosberg said. “We were not able to run that much, but the track feels really great and it was great fun to be out there and find the limit in these difficult conditions.” Vettel was the only driver to test the prototype dry weather tires that will be used by teams in 2014. Vettel ran a lap with them in the first session despite the

damp track, but it was enough to give engineers at least some information that might be useful for next season. “It was good to get a bit of a base line in these conditions,” Vettel said. “We need to be sharp for the next two days and make the right calls. The main loss from the rain was that we didn’t run on the 2014 tires.” Teams and drivers know little about what to expect next year because the series will go through a major change in engine rules, switching from the current 2.4-litre V8 units to a 1.6litre V6 turbocharged engine. It’s a move that will demand significant alterations in the design of cars. The Brazilian GP marks the last race before several driver changes at some of F1’s top teams. World champion Kimi Raikkonen of Finland leaves Lotus for Ferrari, where Felipe Massa lost his ride before joining Williams. The Brazilian replaces Pastor Maldonado of Venezuela, who could be up for the Raikkonen seat at Lotus. McLaren will replace Mexican Sergio Perez with rookie Kevin Magnussen of Denmark, and Australian Daniel Ricciardo, from Red Bull’s sister team Toro Rosso, will replace Webber.

SAO PAULO (AP) — Mark Webber is at the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix already looking forward to new challenges after Formula One. Webber said on Thursday he’s “relaxed” heading into Sunday’s race at Interlagos, and was not having second thoughts about his decision to drive away from racing’s top series. The Australian admitted he will miss some aspects of F1, but was ready “personally and professionally” to end 12 seasons in F1. There were more “negatives than positives” for him at F1, he said, so he was looking forward to a “fresh change” and a “new chapter” in his life driving for Porsche’s endurance program next year. “I think on Sunday it will be a little bit different, but it still feels like a normal race at the moment,” he said. “So looking forward to Sunday in many ways, in terms of obviously pushing for a good result, but also I’m ready to stop and looking forward to the extended winter that I’ll have and the new challenges around the corner.” Webber said “the fire was not quite” there anymore for him in F1, and having a difficult relationship with Red Bull teammate and four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel also didn’t help. “I wouldn’t be leaving if there weren’t things that I’m happy to leave behind,” Webber said. “If there’s more positives than negatives, then obviously I would stay. There’s more negatives than positives.” Vettel said people don’t have an accurate impression of his relationship with Webber and tend to forget how suc-

Webber has had nine wins and 32 podium finishes in 216

race starts. He started from the pole position 13 times and had 18 fastest laps. He twice finished third in the drivers’ championship, in 2010 and 2011. “Getting out of the car Sunday there will be a few things that will be for the last obviously in terms of Formula One, but I’m pretty relaxed at the moment and looking forward to the race,” said Webber, who won in Brazil in 2009 and 2012. Webber said he will miss certain “rewarding” situations in F1. “Obviously, driving the car on the limit at certain venues is still very satisfying, no question about it. You’ve got Suzuka, Spa, Monte Carlo ... so I’ll miss some of that. “It’s inevitable that you are going to miss certain parts. But there comes a time when you’ve got to let go and I’ll still have good adrenaline next year obviously with Porsche and there will be a good balance.”

Russian driver will join IndyCar INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Schmidt Peterson Motorsports has signed Russian driver Mikhail Aleshin for its second IndyCar entry in 2014. The 26-year-old Aleshin got his first seat time in an Indy car this week when he

tested at Sebring International Raceway. He then put together a deal to be teammates next season with Simon Pagenaud. Aleshin won the Formula Renault 3.5 Championship in 2010. He tested the Lotus Renault F1 car and Red Bull F1 car, and then set his sights

on IndyCar. Monday’s test at Sebring was Aleshin’s first trip to the United States. He joins an SMP team that finished third in the IndyCar standings this season with Pagenaud. The Frenchman had two wins on the season.

Seahawks in a good position RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Earl Thomas heard the criticism. The Seattle Seahawks weren’t performing like an elite team. They were playing down to the level of their competition. As they kept winning the impression became they were unsatisfying victories. He understands. For those two games in late October and early November when the Seahawks were in survival mode against St. Louis and Tampa Bay, they weren’t playing to a level they expect. “I just think the attention to detail wasn’t there, the mind frame wasn’t there, the aggression wasn’t there,” Thomas said. “But you can tell now. It’s like piranhas out there. It’s very exciting to be a part of.” Seattle arrived at its bye as the best team not just in the NFC but the entire NFL, a distinction the franchise has never held this late in the season. The Seahawks are 10-1, have already clinched a second consecutive season with double-digit victories for the first time in team history. They’ve positioned themselves to make the path through the NFC playoffs go through the Pacific Northwest, as long as they don’t falter. There’s pride in what the Seahawks have accomplished thus far. But there’s no satisfaction yet. “We’ve been able to endure the adversity and the obstacles that we had to face earlier in the season with the injuries,” Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “Our defense stuck in and gave us opportunities to win games late in games. Now we’re getting healthy and it’s going to be a fun ride.” Even as they field one of the youngest rosters in the NFL, there is a maturity about this Seahawks team that was absent a year ago. Seattle used a lateseason charge to finish 11-5 and reach the second-round of the playoffs before falling to Atlanta in the divisional round. It’s a maturity built out of understanding that just being acceptable is no longer good enough for a team with such lofty expectations. That accountability was challenged for those two weeks when the Seahawks were pushed to the final yard and final play in an ugly 14-9 win in St. Louis. Then they fell behind 21-0 at home to Tampa Bay before rallying for a 27-24 victory in overtime. The meetings inside Seattle’s prac-

Saints hold off pesky Falcons ATLANTA (AP) — Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes, Jimmy Graham had 100 yards receiving and Pierre Thomas compiled 130 total yards. Still, the defense stole the show for another New Orleans Saints win. Defensive ends Cameron Jordan and Akiem Hicks combined for four sacks and New Orleans’ defense made a final fourth-quarter stand as the Saints held on to beat the Atlanta Falcons 17-13 on Thursday night. The Saints (9-2) protected their NFC South lead over Carolina by completing a sweep of the season series with the Falcons, their biggest rivals. The defense had five sacks and 10 hits on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. “We’ve got phenomenal rushers,” said Jordan, who 1 had 2 ⁄2 sacks to raise his season total to a career-high 91⁄2. “One was on the left tackle, one was on the right tackle,” Jordan said. “Wherever you say I can’t rush, I rush through all of them.” Brees threw a 1-yard scorThe Associated Press ing pass to Ben Watson in the Earl Thomas of the Seattle Seahawks, in action, in the second quarter of a game against the first quarter and added a 44Minnesota Vikings at Century Link Field in Seattle on Sunday. yard touchdown pass to Graham in the second quar“Finishing strong” is one of Carroll’s ter.

produced the only secondhalf points for either team. Atlanta staged a strong 10play touchdown drive on its first possession and didn’t reach the end zone again despite giving the Saints one final scare in the fourth quarter. The Falcons took possession at their 9 with 7:53 remaining and moved all the way to the Saints 29 as Ryan threw passes over the middle to Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and Harry Douglas. Jordan’s final sack pushed Atlanta back 5 yards and helped set up a missed 52yard field goal by Matt Bryant with a little more than 2 minutes remaining. The Saints ran off all but the last 5 seconds. “I thought the stop late in the game and then being able to control the clock there at the end, we made some big plays,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. Atlanta (2-9) has lost five straight games to ensure its first losing season since 2007. “On the one hand I think we did pretty good just surrendering 17 points to an explosive offense,” said Atlanta safety William Moore. “We just didn’t make enough plays as a whole to pull out the victory.”

Hits on receivers draw big fines Ravens receiver Torrey Smith. Also fined $15,750 was Patriots tackle Marcus Cannon for his leg whip on Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson, who sustained a knee injury on the play. Titans linebacker Akeem Ayers was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness for a hit on Colts QB Andrew Luck.

Panthers can’t take Miami lightly at this point BY BARRY WILNER The Associated Press Carolina made a big statement with its victory over New England before a national television audience. Should the Panthers stumble Sunday at Miami, so much of the legitimacy they gained from that win could disappear. The Dolphins come off a win over San Diego despite all the inner turmoil over the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin affair, and remain firmly in the AFC wild-card race. So if anyone in the Carolinas sees this game as a slam dunk, they’d better re-evaluate. “They are 5-5 and they are going to bring out their best football,” Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said. “But I don’t see us letting down. We are going to go out and play our best football. We’re trying to go up, we’re not trying to go down.” Carolina owns the top wild-card berth in the NFC with six weeks to go. It was won six straight with an overpowering defense and timely offense. Quarterback Cam Newton is playing as well as he did in taking top offensive rookie honors in 2011. Everything is coming together for the Panthers. Which always can breed cockiness. “That is one of things I’ve talked to the players about — everything we’ve done, hey, we can take a step back (with a loss),” coach Ron Rivera said. “And we don’t want to. So we have to stay focused and focus in on who we’re playing. “We want to be relevant. We want to remain relevant. We want to stay in the conversation.” So does Miami, of course, and a victory Sunday would position it for a stretch run with nothing but conference games remaining. “Obviously they’ve been on a roll as far as football is concerned, playing pretty well, and we’re coming off a game where we feel like we can take the momentum and kind of build with it,” Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake said. “Try and make sure we have our season go in a positive direction.” Also Sunday, it’s Denver at New England, San Diego at Kansas City, Indianapolis at Arizona, Dallas at the New York Giants, Chicago at St. Louis, Tampa Bay at Detroit, Minnesota at Green Bay, the New York Jets at Baltimore, Pittsburgh at Cleveland, Tennessee at Oakland, and Jacksonville at Houston. On Monday night, it’s San Francisco at Washington. Off this week are Seattle (10-1), Cincinnati (7-4) Philadelphia (6-5) and Buffalo (4-7). On Thursday night, New Orleans handed host Atlanta its fifth straight loss, 17-13. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Saints (9-2) overcame a lackluster offensive showing. Brees hooked up with Jimmy Graham on a 44-yard touch-

down and Benjamin Watson on a 1-yard scoring play in the first half and good enough to give the first-place Saints a sweep of disappointing Atlanta (2-9). The Falcons will have their first losing season since 2008. Denver (9-1) at New England (7-3) Ah, Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning. Always a high-profile matchup between two all-time greats. Brady owns a 9-4 record against his rival, and Patriots coach Bill Belichick usually comes up with a defensive scheme that slows or even confounds Manning. But New England, plagued by injuries throughout the defense, might not have the talent to slow Denver’s attack that is on a near-record pace. “It’s incredible to score points like that,” Brady said of Denver, which has 398, 92 more than Seattle, the next most prolific team. “They have a lot of guys that can make plays with the ball. Everybody contributes, that’s what good offenses do. The backs contribute, the tight end contributes, the receivers contribute. They’re all scoring touchdowns. “It’s not like you can just go in and stop one guy. Our defense has its work cut out for us.” WR Wes Welker, who became a star in New England, returns to Foxborough after joining the Broncos this year. San Diego (4-6) at Kansas City (9-1) Now that the Chiefs have a loss and they can forget about that perfection distraction, they need to find a way to handle the enigmatic Chargers. San Diego has won four of the last five against Chiefs and has been playing opponents close, losing three straight by a combined 18 points. Kansas City’s opportunistic defense (NFL best with five defensive TDs and a plus-15 turnover differential) has 36 sacks, but will find it difficult to get to Philip Rivers, who has been trapped only 19 times. Indianapolis (7-3) at Arizona (6-4) Bruce Arians stepped in for an ill Chuck Pagano last season and won Coach of the Year in Indianapolis as an interim. He has the Cardinals job full time now, and faces the AFC South-leading Colts with an Arizona team that has won three in a row. “It’s a fairy tale, it really is,” Arians said. “I hate that to get an opportunity to be a head coach we had to go through what we had to go through last year, but it was the only way. ... This would have never happened without last year.” Arizona is showing some offense lately, scoring 27 points in each of those three victories. And linebacker John Abraham has seven sacks in the last four games; his 129 career sacks are the most among active players. Indianapolis has won its last five games against Arizona dating to 1992, when Colts QB Andrew Luck was 3. San Francisco (6-4) at Washington (3-7), Monday night The defending NFC champion Niners

suddenly are in a dogfight to get a wild-card playoff berth. They trail idle Seattle by 3 1-2 games and aren’t likely to make up that deficit in the NFC West. After two straight defeats in which the offense has sputtered, San Francisco faces a weak defense that ranks 28th overall, 26th against the pass. Much of the attention in Washington has been on whether QB Robert Griffin III was criticizing the coaches and his teammates after last Sunday’s loss to Philadelphia. In the midst of a flop of a season after winning the NFC East, the last thing the Redskins need is another distraction. Dallas (5-5) at New York Giants (4-6) Now that the Giants have re-established themselves as a pretty solid team with four straight victories, they can become a challenger in the NFC East by handling up-anddown Dallas. Eli Manning has stopped throwing picks and New York’s defense has awakened after that early-season slumber. The Cowboys come off a bye but remain undermanned because of injuries. Their defense is especially vulnerable through the air — the Cowboys basically can’t cover — and might need a ton of points in this one. Jason Witten has been almost unstoppable by Giants with 26 receptions for 237 yards and two TDs in the last two meetings. Chicago (6-4) at St. Louis (4-6) The Bears aren’t losing any sleep about Jay Cutler being sidelined with a high left ankle sprain because backup quarterback Josh McCown has passed for five touchdowns with no interceptions in four games overall. The injury-plagued defense got two sacks last week from Julius Peppers, doubling his season total, and he had a season-best 11 tackles. An active Peppers is critical if Chicago is to stay in playoff contention; it’s tied with the Lions atop the NFC North. Rams rookie Tavon Austin became first player in NFL history with a punt return of 95-plus yards and two touchdown receptions of 55 yards or longer in last game. Bears rookie guard Kyle Long faces his older brother, Rams DE Chris Long, for the first time. Tampa Bay (2-8) at Detroit (6-4) Don’t look now, but the Buccaneers are a hot team. They’ve won two in a row, and received an offensive spark from undrafted rookie RB Bobby Rainey, who rushed for 163 yards and two TDs and caught a pass for a score last week against Atlanta. Veteran WR Vincent Jackson had 10 receptions against the Falcons with a season-high 165 yards. Tampa will need similar production against Detroit because the Matthew Stafford-Calvin Johnson combo is among the league’s best. Megatron has seven of his 11 TDs in the last four games while making 35 receptions for 746 yards. Minnesota (2-8) at Green Bay (5-5)

Adrian Peterson heads into his 100th career game approaching another milestone. He needs 67 yards rushing to pass Barry Sanders for third-most yards on the ground in the first 100 games of a career, and he’s 300 yards from 10,000. The Packers have dropped three straight and won’t have Aaron Rodgers back at quarterback this week. In fact, when Scott Tolzien starts for a second straight week, he will be only the third Packers QB to do so in 22 years. Brett Favre or Rodgers has been behind center during that span. Green Bay hopes to get Rodgers back for the Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit. New York Jets (5-5) at Baltimore (4-6) Ed Reed already has made one return visit to his old stomping grounds near the Inner Harbor, with Houston. The Texans cut him, he landed with the Jets, and now is back in Baltimore. He’d better hope the rest of his defensive mates come along — they barely showed up in last week’s loss at Buffalo. And he should hope the Ravens’ defense he left behind doesn’t toy with rookie QB Geno Smith the way the Bills did. Baltimore has sacks in 21 straight games. Ravens RB Ray Rice finally had a breakout last week, but New York generally is tough to run on. Pittsburgh (4-6) at Cleveland (4-6) Sunday’s winner in this bitter rivalry can keep alive playoff hopes, although catching Cincinnati in the AFC North is a long shot. An Ohio native, Ben Roethlisberger is 15-1 against the Browns and won his last five starts against Cleveland. He comes off a strong outing in a win over the Lions: 367 yards passing and four TDs. Cleveland has lost 10 of the last 12 meetings at home with Pittsburgh. Tennessee (4-6) at Oakland (4-6) The Titans are playing the first of three straight road games. They are 2-2 away from Nashville and desperately need this one because the next two trips are to Indy and Denver. Running back Chris Johnson has four TDs rushing in the last two weeks, but Oakland ranks sixth against the run. Raiders QB Matt McGloin became the first undrafted rookie since the start of the common draft in 1967 go have TD passes and no interception in a game filling in for injured Terrelle Pryor. Jacksonville (1-9) at Houston (2-8) For those who think Houston’s season can’t get any worse after eight straight defeats — yes, the Texans were the division favorite heading into 2013 — a loss to the lowly Jaguars would be rock bottom. Houston’s Andre Johnson needs 10 catches to become the 15th player to reach 900. He had career highs in receptions (14) and yards (273) in his last game against Jacksonville, so it’s quite possible he gets there Sunday.

Baylor, Oklahoma State likely playing for Big 12 title

Stanford looks to put California out of its misery Big Game looks to be pretty lopsided as Cal enters with 1-10 record ■

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Weird things have happened in the Stanford-California rivalry before. There’s no greater proof of that than The Play. For Cal to beat Stanford this year, though, it might take something as equally wild as that memorable five-lateral kickoff return that gave the Golden Bears a victory in the 1982 Big Game. Cal (1-10, 0-8 Pac-12) has lost nine straight entering Saturday’s game at No. 10 Stanford (8-2, 6-2)

and is facing what is believed to be the largest odds in the 116th meeting of the Bay Area schools. The Bears, who have dropped 13 straight conference games and are the only team winless in Pac-12 play this 1 season, are 31 ⁄2-point underdogs. “Way crazier things have happened,” Cal fifth-year senior receiver Jackson Bouza said. That’s the message the Bears are bringing across San Francisco Bay this week. That might be the only message left to bring at the end of a miserable debut for coach Sonny Dykes in Berkeley. The fight for The Stanford Axe seems to be as much of a mismatch as Las Vegas bookmakers believe.

The Bears’ only win this season came against Portland State of the lower-tier Football Championship Subdivision. The Cardinal have won 14 straight at home. The Bears are terrible at running the ball and even worse at stopping the run. The Cardinal pride themselves on stopping the run and are among the country’s best rushing teams. The Bears are last in the Pac-12 at protecting the quarterback. The Cardinal are one of the best at sacking the quarterback. The Bears have nothing to play for but pride. The Cardinal, who are coming off a loss at Southern California, need to beat Cal and hope

Oregon loses one of its final two games to Arizona or Oregon State to represent the Pac-12 North in the conference championship game. Talent, experience and coaching — and just about everything else — seems to favor a Stanford team that has made a BCS bowl each of the last three years. Cardinal coach David Shaw, whose program hasn’t lost consecutive games since 2009, is still cautioning his team not to take the Bears lightly. “You’re looking at a team with athletes. They have really good skill positions. Say what you want about their record, they’ve got good receivers, they’ve got good backs,

they’ve got speed and athleticism,” Shaw said. “They can put points up if you’re not ready for them.” While Stanford has won the last three Big Games, the rivalry has been as close as any in the country. The game has been decided by a touchdown or less 52 times, and only 70 points separate Stanford (1,899) and Cal (1,829) in a series that often goes off script. “It doesn’t matter whose record is what, or who’s done what, or who’s won to who, or who’s lost to who,” Cal fifth-year senior defensive end Dan Camporeale said. “It’s a hard-nosed football game that everybody gets very excited for, and I can’t wait.”

Community Sports Junior Olympics runners finish well at state THE WORLD

By Lou Sennick, The World

Lehi Fish, left, and Peyton Simonds spar Saturday afternoon during their match at the Coquille Martial Arts Fall Tournament held at the Coquille Community Center.

Students stand out at tournament THE WORLD COQUILLE — South Coast students took three of the five grand champion awards when Coquille Martial Arts held its ninth annual fall tournament last weekend. The event drew karate students from Medford to Longview, Wash. Coquille Martial Arts students won two of the grand champion awards. Peyton Simonds of Coquille won the 7-and-under category for the second year in a row. Jes-C Tessman of Myrtle Point was the highest-ranked beginner in the 8-17 division. Christian Ater, an adult student at Henderson’s Shorin Ryu, took home the grand champion award for adults under black belt. The black belt grand champion was Jordan Frost, a 16-year-old student form Medford. The under belt champion in the 8-17 age group was Jadie May Watson of Longview. In both divisions, the runner-up was a Coos County student a fraction of a point behind. Tessman also placed best overall, finishing first in every category. “As a school that emphasizes all aspects of martial arts, and especially versatility in the arts, we feel best overall martial artist of the tournament is a very important award,” said tournament promoter Karen Saxton. It’s an honor Tessman has earned through hard work, said Dane Saxton, the instructor for Coquille Martial Arts

at its Coos Bay location. “Students who work hard and put in a lot of practice time at home get results,” he said. Tessman also had the highest grade point average at his school last quarter. The runner-up for best overall was 9-year-old Luke Donaldson of Coquille. Both Tessman and Donaldson have become seasoned competitors over the past year by attending classes in Coquille and at the Coos Bay location whenever possible. Another Coquille Martial Arts student, 15-year-old Devon Berg, ended up sparring with black belts since there were no advanced belts in his age group, and held his own even though he is at least a year away from testing for black belt, Karen Saxton said. Among students competing for the first time were 8-year-old Gunner Aten of Bandon, 7-year-old Lehi Fish of Coos Bay, and Myrtle Point students William Dean, 13; Nate Little, 10; and Connor Angulo, 8. Dean, a student for five months, ended up in a sparring division with more experienced students and placed third. Aten, who has been training just two months, presented himself and his form well for the judges, Karen Saxton said. Coquille Martial Arts placing: Conor Heckard, 10, Coos Bay: third traditional forms, second creative forms and sparring, first creative weapons. David Fish, adult, Coos Bay: second forms, first weapons and sparring.

Lehi Fish, Coos Bay: second flags, third sparring. Gunner Aten, 8, Bandon: second forms. Peyton Simonds, 6, Coquille: first traditional, flag starring and point sparring and second Kukkiwon. Grand champion for ages 7-and-under. Jes-C Tessman, 10, Myrtle Point: first traditional, weapons, creative forms and weapons, point sparring and Kukkiwon. Grand champion beginners 8-17 and best overall. Maliyah Lockwood, 10, Coquille: first traditional form, second creative weapons and weapons, third sparring. Devon Berg, 15, Coquille: first traditional and Kukkiwon, second in creative forms and weapons, third in sparring. Luke Donaldson, 9, Coquille: first traditional, Kukkiwon, weapons and creative weapons and sparring, second creative open. Nate Little, 10, Myrtle Point: first Kukkiwon and second traditional and sparring. Connor Angulo, 8, Myrtle Point: first forms and Kukkiwon, second sparring. Ean Smith, 11, Myrtle Point: second traditional, creative, weapons and creative weapons, and Kukkiwon. Christiaan Lockwood, 12, Coquille: third in forms and weapons, fourth in sparring. William Dean, 13, Myrtle Point: first in forms and Kukkiwon, third in sparring.

The South Coast will have a strong representation at the Junior Olympics regional cross country meet today after a good effort in qualifying at the state meet last weekend. The Southern Oregon Coast Runners, which includes athletes from Bandon, Coos Bay, Coquille, Gold Beach, Langlois, Myrtle Point, North Bend and Port Orford, sent a big group to the state meet at Western Oregon University in Monmouth. The regionals is at the same complex today. Regional qualifiers included runners who finished in the top 35 in their individual races or were part of teams that finished in the top five. All of the Southern Oregon Coast Runners teams met that standard, but some of the individuals won’t be competing today because of other commitments, which means some athletes won’t be able to compete. In all, 21 runners will compete today for the club. The top 30 finishers and top five teams in each division from the regional meet advance to the nationals in San Antonio. The local runners will try to build off their strong effort a week ago. “They did great,” said Brent Hutton, who is one of the coaches for the team. “They have an advantage (at regionals) because they’re running the same course this week.” The top finishers for the local runners were a pair of Bandon runners. Sailor Hutton placed third in the girls 13-14 age group with a time of 15 minutes and 14 seconds on a 4,000-meter course. Aida Santoro placed fourth in the 15-16 division with a time of 20:35 on a 5,000-meter route. Andrew King, an eighthgrade runner for Marshfield, was the top boy, placing sixth in the 13-14 division with a time of 14:01. Others in the top 15 for their age groups included Sawyer Heckard, another Marshfield runner, who was

In the 15-16 girls race, Zoe Mitchell of Pacific High School was 12th, Anna Sweeney of Coquille was 13th, Jane Suppes of Marshfield was 14th and Shelby Tobiska of Bandon was 15th. The South Coast squad took first in its division. Brent Hutton said having such a varied team with athletes from several schools is a good thing. “The thing about it is these kids are going to be running together for the next four or six years,” he said. “It’s nice that they are getting to know each other. It’s nice that they can build friendships that will last.” Results for the South Coast runners, including two others who ran for the Prefontaine Track Club, are listed in today’s Community Scoreboard.

Turkey Trot will be held on Thanksgiving THE WORLD Anyone looking for exercise before diving into their Thanksgiving feast is invited to the South Coast Running Club’s annual Turkey Trot, a non-competitive run or walk on the Empire Lakes trails in John Topits Park in Coos Bay. The event starts at 9 a.m. Thanksgiving day at the Head Start building.

Fred Meyer stores stocking firearms for sale COOS BAY — Fred Meyer is now selling firearms. Cindy Dieter, assistant manager for the store’s home department, said sales have been going better than expected since the section went live on Nov. 3. “There has been a lot of interest in it,” she said.“There have been a lot of people who have purchased guns and looking around at the new things. Everyone is glad we put it back in. Everyone is excited about it.” Dieter said the store used to sell firearms years ago but was unsure why they were at one point removed. Most Fred Meyer stores sell firearms. The section has a “little bit of everything,” she said: rifles, shotguns, handguns, two-way radios, binoculars, ammo, hunting cases, tar-

How to pick the right mulch Protecting your home BY DEAN FOSDICK The Associated Press Compost or mulch? People often confuse the two, although each fulfills a different function in gardening. Which one you want depends on your needs. “Compost is used to feed crops; mulch is used to suppress weeds,” said Daniel McGrath, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension. “Compost is decomposed organic matter that is generally higher in nutrients and relatively low in carbon compared to mulch. Mulch is raw, un-decomposed organic matter.” Unlike compost, mulch is generally not mixed into the soil, he noted, but is applied 2 to 4 inches deep on top of the soil around a tree or shrub. Mulch has fewer nutrients and is not meant to replace fertilizer, which should be added as a supplement. Mulching does, however, maintain soil moisture, prevent most weed seeds from germinating and keep soil temperatures constant around plants, said Martha Smith, an extension horticulturist with the University of Illinois. Which kind of mulch

you choose depends on what you’re growing and where. Some mulch, especially crushed rock and commercially made, colorenhanced mixtures, can beautify pathways, driveways and play areas. Good mulch is easy to apply and remove; is free of noxious weeds, insects and disease; and adds organic materials to the soil as it breaks down. “There are different byproducts used across the U.S. based on local supply,” Smith said. That includes pine needles in the South, hazelnut shells in the Northwest and buckwheat hulls in the Southeast. Some different mulch materials from which to choose: ■ S h r ed d e d b a r k , w o o d chips and shavings. Easy to spread and long-lasting, but can rob the soil of nitrogen and make landscape plants turn yellow. Look for “arborist chips” or ground-up tree branches that can make a good mulch and often are available for the asking from tree trimmers. ■ Gravel and stones. Stone doesn’t have to be replaced like organic mulches, but it is expensive and will work into the ground. Stone is great for problem areas, though, like

deep shade or in channels cut for stormwater runoff. ■ Black plastic and straw. Both are commonly used in vegetable gardens and orchards. Plastics, however, prevent water from entering the soil, while straw contains grain seeds that can germinate. ■ L e a v e s . Shredded leaves provide good insulation and weed control, although they won’t allow much water to penetrate. Work them into the soil after they decompose. ■ Others include. Newspapers (unattractive unless shredded), peat moss (inexpensive but acidic), shredded rubber (doesn’t decompose but may smell) and landscape cloth (allows water to infiltrate but must be tacked down). S o m e m a te r i a l s to a v o i d : ■ G ra s s c l i p p i n gs , e s p e cially any containing herbi cides. Clippings are better left on lawns where they break down quickly and return some nutrients to the soil. ■ Tr e a t e d w o o d c h i p s , charcoal and ash. Especially barbeque briquettes and coal ash — may include compounds and chemicals harmful to pets and plants. ■ Sawdust packs tightly and is unsightly.

Handy isn’t in the tools There was a time when I thought the secret to handiness was having exactly the right tools. If only I had the fancy magnesium trowels and jointers, I’d finally be able to lay straight and level courses of brick and block. If only I had the limitededition titanium hammer with the hatchet handle, I’d never again bend a nail or dimple a clapboard. If only I had the solid brass bob, every wall I built would be dead-on plumb. If only … Alas, after 40-odd years of professional handiness, I still cannot lay brick, I bend at least two nails per hour and although my walls are perfectly plumb nowadays, I’ve learned a fat fender washer on the end of a string works just as well as the spiffiest plumb bob. ‘Although it’s true that the right tool makes the job go easier, it’s equally true that the secret to handiness is not in the tools at all. Most of the time it’s in creative thinking. Consider the famous substitute tools. Need a screwdriver in an emergency? The answer’s likely right there in your pocket. Is the screw too tight to be budged by a dime or quarter? Check the silverware drawer for a butter knife. Too tiny a screw for that knife? Try a steak knife instead. Or a nail file.

I once knew three little girls (the oldest would have been about 11) who called upon such creativity to dismantle a locked bedroom door. Although they managed to rescue the bag of c a n d y s q u i r re l e d HOUSE inside, that butter knife was never the same. All manner of things can be substit u te d fo r h a m m e rs, of course. STEVE R o c k s . BATIE Chunks of concrete. A hefty pocket knife. A friend once confessed all the curtain rods in her living room hung from brackets nailed in place with a high heel. I assume the heel was somewhat shorter by the end of the job. There were a lot of curtains in that room. When it comes to cutting things apart or making them smaller, it’s back to the kitchen. Butcher knives are obvious, of course, but a truly creative handyperson will see the potential in the serrated bread knife. Not just for bagels, gang. Actually, it looks a little like that tree saw you left out in the rain last spring, doesn’t it? T h e h u m a n b o dy, o f


from electrical hazards Tips from Home Improvement Expert Tom Kraeutler ■

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Recognizing safety measures in your home What comes to mind when considering safety hazards around the home? Do you think of electrical safety, fire prevention and reducing the risk of electrical shock? Often times, our quest for new kitchen cabinets and hardwood floors takes priority, while the projects to increase home safety are put on the back burner. One project, however, that should not be put off is evaluating the electrical safety of your home. “There is no time like the present to take a good look around your home and make the simple, yet necessary changes to eliminate electrical hazards and create an added layer of protection for your home and family,” said Tom Kraeutler, home improvement expert and syndicated radio show host of The Money Pit. Kraeutler notes a good start is to take inventory of the outlets around your home. Take notice of any outlets that could benefit from being replaced by an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI), Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) or tamper-resistant outlet.

AFCI versus GFCI AFCIs and GFCIs sound similar, but what do they mean? While AFCIs provide protection from arc-faults that may lead to electrical fires, GFCIs help protect homeowners from electrical shock due to ground faults. Arc-fault protection is extremely important as arc-faults are often unseen and can occur anywhere in the home’s electrical system, including within walls as well as appliance cords. AFCI receptacles are relatively new to the market and detect arcing electrical faults to help reduce the likelihood of the electrical system being an ignition source of a fire. They are perfect for a remodeling project or new home construction as the latest National Electrical Code(r) requires AFCI protection in a growing number of locations throughout the home. GFCIs on the other hand are designed to reduce the occurrences of shock or electrocution due to ground faults. Many homeowners are familiar with GFCI devices as they are proven safety products that have saved many lives since their introduction to the market.

trical fires account for an estimated 51,000 fires each year, resulting in nearly 500 deaths, more than 1,400 injuries and $1.3 billion in property damage? Just as alarming, the Foundation reports that nearly seven children are treated daily in hospital emergency rooms for electrical shock or burn injuries caused by tampering with a wall outlet. Recent technological advances in the AFCI, GFCI and tamper-resistant outlet market have made achieving whole home electrical protection simpler than ever. This is due to the creation of devices capable of providing necessary protection, as well as cost-effective and easier to install options. “AFCI protection was once only available through the home’s circuit breaker,” Kraeutler explained. “Now, AFCI receptacles are available for a safe alternative for added home protection.” In addition, GFCI options are available in slim design for added space in an electrical box to make installation simpler. They also offer a tamper resistant design for increased safety by blocking access to the contacts by most foreign objects, thereby reducing shock and electrocution incidents. Take proactive steps to update your home’s electrical devices using the following tips: Tips to protect your home from electrical hazards Keep an eye out for electrical wiring damaged during installation or afterwards through over-stapling; crushing; bending; penetration by screws and nails; and through rodent or insect damage. Over time, cabling may also degrade further due to exposure to elevated temperatures or humidity, eventually leading to arcing faults and potentially a fire. Install AFCI receptacles in family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, parlors, libraries, dens, bedrooms, sunrooms, recreation rooms, closets, hallways or similar rooms or areas. Use GFCI receptacles anywhere water may be present, such as kitchens, bathrooms, garages, basements, porches, pool areas and laundry rooms. For added convenience, try a self-test GFCI that automatically tests itself to confirm that protected power is available. Consider replacing standard outlets with tamper-resistant outlets which employ an automatic shutter mechanism designed to protect children attempting to insert foreign objects. One company, Leviton, offers the industry’s first AFCI receptacle, slim GFCI receptacles for easier installation and a wide variety of combination tamper-resistant outlet devices. Visit your local or online retailer for more product details.

course, is a pretty good tool all on its own. You would have tried using a fingernail on that screw before you ever went to the trouble of rifling t h ro u g h t h e f l a twa re , right? And a fist or foot makes a decent hammer as long as you’re simply bashing. Think of them as small sledges. They’re not much good for pounding nails.

Tipping for salon services should not be guilt-driven


Dear Mary: Do you tip a hairdresser if that person also owns the salon? I go to a shop where the owners provide services. I have always debated whether to give them a tip. What do you think?— Mary V. D e a r M a r y V. : My etiquette sources still give the conventional response to tip a hairdresser unless that person is the owner of the busin e s s . However, EVERYDAY CHEAPSKATE itunclear isif t h i s applies if t h a t owner also prov i d e s services a s opposed to superMary vising Hunt and running the business. I must admit this is a ticklish situation, especially if you have been tipping these folks in the past. If you were to stop suddenly, you might get less than satisfactory service in the future. My suggestion is that you decide for yourself why you tip any service person. If it’s to reward a job well done, and that’s what you’re receiving from these folks, a tip is likely in order. As a general rule, don’t ever feel compelled to tip out of guilt. Set your own standards based on what you think is right, and then stick by them. Dear Mary: I sure hope you can help me. I’m at the end of my rope with the floor of our fiberglass shower. It’s stained and gross. I’ve wasted a lot of money on fiberglass cleaners, but nothing works. I cannot afford to replace the shower, which is in excellent functional condition. Any suggestions? — Roy M. Dear Roy: Sounds like it’s time to bring out the big artillery. Make a trip to the grocery store for Twenty Mule Team Borax (you’ll find it in the laundry aisle) and on the way home, stop at the home improvement store for FINE drywall sandpaper (it’s not really sandpaper, it looks more like window screening and is sometimes called a drywall sponge). Mix 1 cup borax and 3 cups baking soda into a scouring powder. Dampen the floor of the shower, sprinkle on the powder generously and then scrub the floor with the drywall sandpaper as you would a sponge. Rinse and repeat as necessary. Caution: This is for otherwise hopeless situations and textured fiberglass tub and shower floors, not smooth fiberglass surfaces. D e a r M a r y : For many years, I’ve been darning socks and hose. I know it must sound old fashioned to you, but the hose I wear are expensive and I like to make them last a long time. I have a problem. The store where I have purchased darning thread for many years has stopped carrying it. Now I cannot find it anywhere. I sure hope you can help me.— Bertha Dear Bertha: What I know about darning could fit into a thimble with room to spare, but I do know where to find that thread. The Knit Shop in Eugene, Oregon carries 23 colors of your darning thread for $3 per card. You can order from their very nice website at (search “darning thread”) or call (541) 434-0430 to order by phone. Sure hope that keeps you darning for many more years. 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.

MARK DEAN REEVES, Personal Representative

BRIDGE Most of my columns are clear-cut. This one is much less so. However, many years ago, my then partner, David Greenwood, and I discussed grand slams. These are major point winners ... and losers. We knew that most authorities recommend leading a trump against a grand. It is assumed that a pair will not bid seven unless its trump suit is solid. So, to avoid giving away a trick, a trump lead has to be safe. We decided that we could cash in on this. We agreed to bid seven if we

knew the only missing key-card was the trump queen. Then, if the lead was a trump, it would pick up the queen for us; if the lead was from a side suit, we would play the opening leader for the trump queen. We went three for three, and this was playing against internationals, not beginners. (We were using an early form of Roman Key-Card Blackwood called Byzantine Blackwood, when we could find out about the trump king and queen.) The declarer in today’s deal would have benefited from joining our discussion. South opened with a weak two-bid. North used Blackwood, then jumped to seven diamonds. (Yes, he might have bid seven no-trump.) West led the heart jack. South knew that with nine trumps, the odds favored playing out the ace and king. So, he won with his heart queen, played a trump to dummy’s king, and returned the diamond 10 toward his ace — unlucky. You, though, will know to finesse through West. And if you believe in this theory, you will finesse on the first round, in case West has all four trumps!

Modern brakes are largely unaffected by water CAR



SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2013 Home and living conditions should be your focus this year. Add to your comfort and share your space with people who contribute to your happiness. Open-mindedness will lead to knowledge and skills that will encourage you to strive to acquire a better position. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Money matters may limit what you can and cannot do. You are best to take care of your debts before you take on more responsibility. Don’t let emotions influence negotiations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Send out your resume or set up a plan that will help you earn more money. An investment must not be allowed to limit your cash flow. Protect your interests and your possessions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Keep a close watch over what transpires around you. Someone will try to limit your chance to follow your dream. Let your heart lead the way and impulses take over. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Get together with old friends or colleagues. The discussions that unfold will help you make choices that will improve your financial and personal situation. Romance is favored. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Restlessness will take over if you aren’t busy. Get out of the house and

Dear Tom and Ray: I recently finished driver’s ed, and in it, they told us that when we drive through puddles, our brakes get wet, which is true. Their solution to this was to lightly press the brake pedal while still holding down the accelerator. But when I told my dad this, he said they were wrong, and that doing so would just wear out the brakes. Which is true? — Katie TOM: Your dad is right in

this case, Katie. So give him a hug and let him revel in his correctness. I can tell you from personal experience that dads need to bask in this sort of occasional success. RAY: Back in the old days — like, 1970s and earlier — almost all cars used drum brakes. If you went through a deep puddle with drum brakes, water could get between the brake shoes and the drums, and “lubricate” the brakes.

TOM: And like the soles of your own shoes, brakes are NOT something you ever want lubricated. RAY: So, as a result, very wet drum brakes often would fail. Back then, the advice was to use the brakes immediately after driving through a puddle — repeatedly, if necessary, to create friction and heat them up so the water would vaporize and your brakes would work again. TOM: But that was 40

years ago. Now, all cars use disc brakes, which are pretty much unaffected by water. R A Y : Some lower-end models still use drum brakes on the rear wheels to save money. But since the majority of the braking is done by a car’s front brakes, even those cars don’t seem to have issues with puddles anymore. TOM: So if you have a car with drum brakes in the rear — or don’t know if you do — it’s not a bad idea to check

do whatever makes you feel good or adds to your skills or confidence. Mingle and have fun. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Participate, take action and do the things that enhance your relationships with key people in your life. Refuse to let an emotional situation ruin your day. Live, love and laugh. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — A change in the way you do things or the people you hang out with will give you an idea of what can be accomplished. Home improvements will be a good place to start. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — With a little extra effort and physical force, you will receive recognition and good fortune. There are profits to be made, and unique contributions will boost your reputation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Walk away from trouble. You will benefit far more from doing what works for you and letting others fend for themselves. An opportunity will develop through a secret connection. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Attend an event that is geared toward a personal interest. Discuss plans that include travel or positive lifestyle changes. Unique offers will capture your attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Nurture and improve personal relationships. Offer help or compromise in a situation that requires keeping the peace to avoid a costly casualty. Put love first. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Travel plans or taking part in a challenge or physical activity will add to your pleasure. Endorse an unusual,

but clever, plan that will improve your current living arrangements.

Don’t sit still waiting for someone else to make a move. Take control of a situation you face, and you will make interesting discoveries that result in personal benefits. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Nurture an important relationship with diplomacy and patience. Listen to what’s said and respond honestly. Emotional misrepresentation and arguments will not solve a personal dilemma. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t feel pressured because someone wants to make an unexpected change. Continue along a safe and comfortable route that shows personal promise and financial safety. Romance will improve your evening. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Expect demands, but don’t let anything stop you from taking part in or attending something you’ve been planning. Make a couple of adjustments, and you should be good to go. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — A serious look at someone or something from your past will bring you up to speed, helping you move forward without regret. A romantic evening should be planned. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Helping others will make you feel good as long as you don’t overdo it or let anyone take you for granted. Complete the jobs that pay before you get involved in freebies. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Expand your interests and your friendships. The people you interact with now will give you plenty in return. Focus on making your surroundings more conducive to reaching your cre-

ative desires.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2013 Make personal changes that will bring you greater comfort, confidence and peace of mind. Not everyone will be happy with the choices you make, but if you don’t follow your heart, you will be living a lie. Speak up and prepare to do what’s best for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Avoid conflicts. Put more effort into family matters and taking care of responsibilities. A change of heart will be based on secret information. Don’t share personal opinions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — There is plenty to accomplish. Set your goals high and be persistent in your pursuits. Don’t let anyone guilt you into lending or making a donation. Charity begins at home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Play by the rules and stick to a budget or plan if you don’t want to be subjected to discord or end up in a compromising position. Listen carefully and do what’s necessary. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — False information will surface and must be sorted out quickly before someone gets the wrong impression. Offer what you can, but make sure you take care of your personal situation first. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Double-check what you are getting for your money before making an impulsive purchase or financial decision. Minor ailments will be due to stress and poor choices. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) —

TUESDAY, NOV. 26, 2013 Learning, exploring and working hard to get ahead will help to alleviate some of the personal trials and tribulations you face this year. Don’t lose sight of your professional and financial goals. Success is your savior. Strive for perfection. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Take part in competitive activities or get into a fitness regime or healthier lifestyle. Using up excess energy can help defuse an unnecessarily disruptive no-win situation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — An interesting means to make more cash will be made available. Take on responsibilities and show off your talent. Your services will be in demand, and a unique opening will be offered. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Emotional encounters will escalate. Gather your thoughts and take a back seat until you feel you have a better idea how to handle what’s happening. Don’t make a promise you cannot keep. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Reach deep within and revisit past encounters, and it will bring back a mishap that still stands between you and success.Turn a wrong into a right and keep moving forward. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Self-improvement will be the name of the game. Pick up skills or research something that will help you advance. Keep life simple and stay within a set budget. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) —

your brakes after you drive through a particularly deep puddle, just to reassure yourself. But you do that by softly tapping on the brake pedal for half a second, with your foot off the accelerator. You should be able to confirm instantly that they’re working fine from the reaction of the car. RAY: So you got a piece of outdated advice from that driver’s ed instructor, Katie. The victory goes to Daddio.

Do for others, and you will be given the green light to move forward. Romance and communication will bring you to an agreement that has a positive influence on your life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Tend to unfinished personal paperwork. It’s important to be up to date if you don’t want to run into a conflict with someone in an authoritative position. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Only agree to what’s reasonable. Not everyone will have your best interest at heart. Say what’s on your mind and make fair suggestions. Negotiate, and you will win. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ll face opposition if you stick around home. Get together with someone who doesn’t judge you or put demands on your time. A suggestion made will help you regain your confidence. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Use an emotional situation to your advantage. Your ability to manipulate a situation using your expertise, knowledge and keen perception will help you get your way. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Keep up to date on personal issues. Healthy financial habits and sticking to set plans will ensure that you are able to make do and come through with what you have signed up for. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Express your concerns and show interest in people you feel are onto something lucrative. Turn your residence into a workplace and develop what you feel can bring in extra cash.
