Teachers union asks board to settle contract BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

NORTH BEND — North Bend teachers are frustrated. Claudia Slack, president of the North Bend Education Association — the teachers union — spoke to the North Bend school board and superintendent BJ Hollensteiner last week, expressing her disappointment that the teachers union contract hasn’t been finalized. “Today I was hoping to sit here and say thank you. Thank you for supporting and believing in your teachers. I so wanted to thank you for taking this burden of settling our contract off our plate,” Slack said. “...But instead I’m here to ask why? Why do you not support and respect the teachers you have employed in your district? What we are

asking for in our contract is not extravagant or excessive. We truly do not understand what it is that is keeping the board and superintendent from supporting and affirming their appreciation for us.” Following the meeting, Slack said she wants a new working climate in the school district. “I want to make it not ‘us’ and ‘them,’” she said. “I want it to be all of us working together. We work for them, but they hire us to do a good job and it really should be all of us working together.” She referred to data about teachers union contracts statewide compiled by the Chalkboard Project. North Bend teachers receive two personal days a year, unlike the three all other South Coast teachers receive. She also said

Marshall speaks at domestic violence summit

North Bend teachers have the lowest benefits package. “We didn’t go into this career to see what we could ‘get out of it’ or climb some ‘education ladder,’” she said. “Yet too often it feels that we are perceived as the enemy by our board and superintendent.” North Bend teachers are the 13thlowest paid teachers in the state, Slack said. Hollensteiner argued that that average is skewed lower because North Bend has a larger number of new teachers who are on the first step of the salary scale, versus other districts with more veteran teachers (see chart for breakdowns of North Bend and Coos Bay teacher salary schedules).

CB, NB teacher salary schedules Both Coos Bay and North Bend schools superintendents, Dawn Granger and BJ Hollensteiner, noted that while teachers’ salary schedules start with no bachelor’s degree or only a bachelor’s degree, the majority of teachers are not coming to the district at that level. In fact, most start out with 30 to 45 credits in addition to their bachelor’s degree or a complete master’s degree. “Probably nobody just has a bachelor’s,” Granger said. “Bachelor’s plus 15 [credits] you wouldn’t even have your teaching credential yet.” Every year a teacher works they can generally expect to move a step up the ladder. 2012-2013: Step 1 of salary schedule for licensed employees (teachers) District B+30 B+45 M M+45 Coos Bay $32,675 $33,534 $34,965 $36,683 North Bend $32,263 $32,824 $34,475 $36,156 Step 5: Coos Bay $38,505 $39,365 $40,796 $42,514 North Bend $37,807 $38,367 $40,329 $41,979

COOS BAY — She never thought she’d be in the position she is now. “I wasn’t looking to be a U.S. Attorney,” she said. “If you’d told me that I would’ve laughed.” Amanda Marshall, U.S. Attorney General for Oregon, spoke to Zonta members and other concerned citizens Wednesday at the Red Lion Hotel in Coos Bay. It was part of the club’s “Say No Summit,” a campaign to help end domestic violence. The crowd, and some hotel workers, seemed pleased to see her. “Whenever I need an ego boost, I just come back to Coos Bay,” she said. Marshall has been an advocate for sex crime and domestic violence victims beginning early in her career in Coos County 20 years ago, when she was hired out of Willamette University College of Law. She said her edge in getting the deputy district attorney position for Coos County out of 30 applicants was an interest in helping domestic violence victims. “This was right after the O.J. Simpson trial,” she said. “So, I said I would love to protect domestic violence victims.” Although, she also said she took the job to lure her then boyfriend, Ladd Wiles, into moving with her. He had expressed interest in living in the county, she said. The two later married while still working for the district attorney’s office. “The real reason I took the job was to get the guy,” she said. Marshall served in Coos County for about five years. While here, she began an effort to get face-toface time with domestic violence victims. She found that cases were dismissed due to lack of personal interaction with the abused. Some of her ideas didn’t go over too smoothly in the beginning. “Law enforcement was at first amused by me,” she said. But, her tactics seemed to help

The Miss Emily was launched on Saturday into the water in Charleston. The Brookings-based vessel will be used primarily as a crabbing and shrimping vessel. It was one of two boats made this year by Giddings Boat Works in Charleston.

Miss Emily is second new fishing boat finished in 2013 BY EMILY THORNTON The World

CHARLESTON — There was hardly a splash as the new vessel lowered into the water. The Miss Emily — a massive 72-by-28 foot steel structure — was christened and gently launched on Saturday after about a year of construction. She is one of two crabbing and shrimping vessels Giddings Boat Works completed this year. The Patriot, owned by Mike Pettis, was the other one. The company hasn’t finished a boat since 1999, but has added employees and hopes to build at least one boat per year, according to owner Ray Cox. Giddings has grown slowly from nine employees, when Cox bought the business five and a half years ago, to 30 employees. Owners of the Miss Emily, Todd and Ann Whaley, named the vessel after their daughter, Emily Kathleen. All were present, along with a couple

hundred other revelers, at the launch party. “I’m way prouder than when I was painting it,” Ann Whaley said. The Miss Emily will be based in Brookings, but will move as needed. It may go to Washington in December to catch anchovies, she said. “Wherever the fish are is where the boat goes,” she said. The boat will be at sea up to eight days at a time, she said. The Whaleys also own the Miss Sarah, after their eldest daughter, and are co-owners of the Dynamic. “The crew worked really hard to get it done,” she said.

NORTH BEND — The Jordan Cove Energy Project dominated U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden’s town hall on Sunday. Wyden, one of Oregon’s two Democratic senators, was barraged with questions from both sides of the natural gas debate on the Southwestern Oregon Community College campus Sunday afternoon. The auditorium was packed and the majority were wearing bright green shirts supporting Jordan Cove. But a couple of rows of Jordan Cove critics also came, decked out in red, and were vocal about their disappointment that Wyden wanted to give the project a chance. “I want it understood in this community that I believe, with efforts I’ve made as chairman of the (Senate’s) Energy and Natural Resources Committee ... I believe I have now made it possible for Jordan Cove to get full consideration as a facility for export,” he said to a standing ovation from Jordan Cove supporters and boos from its critics. But there are a lot of issues that still need to be addressed, he said, including potential environmental problems and its effects on neighbors and communities. One issue Wyden especially wants to examine is the connection between natural gas and methane emissions. “The issue right now for the federal government is essentially whether we want to cut off consideration for Jordan Cove,” he said. “I do not. I want it understood.” Bay Clinic senior physician Dr. Joseph Morgan has concerns that there would be significant negative health effects from air pollution. But natural gas is 50 percent cleaner than air emissions from power plants, Wyden said, a statement backed up by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “No matter how much we do right now in terms of renewable energy, we’re going to need to bring in energy from other sources. That’s what brings front

Fix the website, fix Obamacare Bad news for CLNN, the Chicken Little News Network, that is, just about all of them lately: In states which have set up their own Affordable Care Act marketplaces, enrollment is proceeding apace. Indeed, media melodrama about “Obama’s Katrina” and similar formulations appears paradoxically to have reminded people that dependable health insurance is at last available to them and their families. Not only doesn’t the political sky seem to be falling, but, according to the Los Angeles Times, signups in California during the first two weeks of November doubled those for the month of October. Several other states are also showing strong enrollment growth. The governors of Washington, Connecticut and Kentucky co-signed a Washington Post column about how they’re making the law work. The indispensable Kevin Drum draws a preliminary conclusion: “It really is all about the website ... The bottom line is the Republican Party’s worst nightmare: Once Obamacare has been up and running for a while, it’s going to be pretty popular ... ” A commenter to Drum’s blog waxes enthusiastic: “California Obamacare is 20 kinds of awesome. It took 45 minutes to sign up and it will save me between 6,000 and 11,000 dollars PER YEAR depending on whether I have to go to the doctor. And now if I want to switch jobs or be selfGENE employed I don’t have to LYONS worry about pre-existing Columnist BS conditions that they’ve turned me down for in the past even though I’ve never had a serious disease or been hospitalized. Don’t drink, don’t smoke, not overweight ... my pre-existing crime against humanity? Over 50.If you were over 50 in the pre-ACA days, it was next to impossible to get a policy.” It’s definitely true that the Affordable Care Act makes it possible to buy health insurance without first proving that you probably won’t need it. Also vanishing is the concept of “rescission,” where, say, a breast cancer diagnosis can trigger an investigation aimed at voiding your policy. The portability of coverage under the ACA is also going to give people the enhanced economic liberty Republicans always say people should have — although what they usually mean in practice is absolute freedom for corporations while you keep quietly doing as you’re told. Maybe the most amusing thing about the Washington media hullabaloo over the president’s Big Lie was how it reprised George W. Bush’s greatest hits. Was the health care debacle “Obama’s Katrina,” Obama’s “Mission Accomplished,” or “Obama’s Iraq”? Possibly feeling sorry for the ex-rancherturned-dog-portrait-painter,Fox News even went so far as to dub this president’s mealymouthed apology “Obama’s Watergate.” Meanwhile, a bunch of ostensibly liberal Washington courtier/pundits proved their independence by joining the excited throng declaring Obama’s presidency finished. While much of their intended audience dozes, headline-hungry, ratings-driven, click-soliciting news orgs act increasingly like a litter of kittens in a room full of balloons — excitedly chasing the next big political scandal or a glimpse of Miley Cyrus’s nipple. Whichever comes first. Comparing a health insurance fib to a botched natural disaster or a catastrophic war is morally grotesque to begin with. Goodness, nobody died. If this the worst falsehood President Obama emits, he’ll go down as one of the least mendacious pols in living memory. Also, let’s not pretend that public ignorance and sloth weren’t a big part of the problem. Anybody who paid minimal attention understood that phasing out Brand X health insurance was the whole point of the ACA. As Sarah Kliff explained on her Washington Post “Health Care Watch” blog, “the whole point of the health-care law was to eliminate insurance plans that didn’t offer robust enough coverage. Giving these plans another year on the market would be a step backward ... The wave of insurance cancellations happening right now is a feature of the law; not a bug.” So anyway, what really set the kittens amongst the balloons was the flabbergasting failure of the healthcare.gov website — a Rube Goldberg contraption assembled by 55 private contractors with nobody in the Obama administration seemingly taking charge. Fix the website, and the political problem fixes itself.

Letters to the Editor Democrats trying to destroy this country This is a reply to John Zimmerman’s “small ball” mentality of Nov. 16. For years the Democrats has used a tax and spend plan to destroy America. This plan was not working quickly enough so Democrat Bill Clinton signed the NAFTA treaty into law in December 1993, and millions of middle-class jobs were lost to overseas slave labor. In 1994, Democrat Clinton signed the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty. This treaty would have given control and taxing authority of the oceans to the Marxist/Communist United Nations. It would have been an attack on our selfreliance and sovereignty. Clinton failed to get the two-thirds majority in the Senate to make it a binding treaty. Since the creation of the U.N., in 1945, Democrats have been trying to sell us out to these third-world Marxist despots and the billionaires who control them. Alger Hiss (1904-1996), Democrat, was a member of the Roosevelt administration and was executive secretary of the Dumbarten Oaks Conference in 1944 that drew up the plans for the United Nations. Alger Hiss was accused of being a communist spy in 1948. The Army’s secret VENONA project (declassified in 1995) proved he was a spy for the Communist Soviet Union. On Sept. 25, Barrack Obama, using the hand of his Secretary of State John Kerry, signed the Small Arms Treaty. This treaty, despite what some say, is aimed at destroying our Second Amendment gun rights, proved that Democratic Party treason is alive and very active. At this time, Democrats do not appear to have the votes in the Senate to ratify this treaty. The letters to this forum by John Zimmerman and Ron Gallagher remind me of this quote by Ronald Reagan: “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” Perhaps, John, you have identified the wrong group as the “dolts” of the world.

Heed warnings on recent phone scams In the past week I have received two suspicious contacts that I wish to share with you to hopefully save you from having your identity information stolen. One was a call from a man from India at 7:45 a.m. saying he was from Microsoft, and because my computer had been on during the past three days, it had been infected with a really bad virus. He said he could fix that for me. Luckily, Mr. T. Haruna of Haruna Computers in Bandon had warned me that Microsoft would never call people like this and that it was a scam. I told the man that my computer had not been on for 10 days and he was lying. He apologized and hung up. The second attempt to gain access to my identity information came yesterday via email, saying it was from my credit card bank. The page looked very authentic. It warned me that there was a problem with my account and my credit card would be frozen if I did not respond to that email within three days to correct my identification information. I knew that this was not likely but to be safe I telephoned customer service at my bank and asked if this was accurate or a scam. I was informed that they have been receiving many of these calls recently as the criminals have stepped up

their activities. So, if you receive phone calls that are suspicious or “warning of suspicious activity” — be suspicious and call the company itself. Do not give our your personal information. Be safe, be prepared. Andrea Gatov Coquille

Lessons learned from near disaster Myself and my lady went on a short mushrooming trip to an area we had only be in once before. I didn’t start back early enough and it got very dark in that canyon. I called my lady on my cell phone and told her I was spending the night. I told her to blow the car horn so I would know what direction to travel as I had to keep moving to stay warm. She wanted to call the Sheriff’s Department but I told her it wasn’t necessary because as soon as it was light I could come right out. Another mistake, as it became daylight I couldn’t find a clear path in the right direction so I tried to blaze my own trail through a virtual jungle. She kept blowing the car horn for me to follow, another mistake as the horn was echoing and led me in circles. My body was wearing out. In the afternoon, the next day, she finally ignored my request not to call for help and dialed 911. After a short period of time, Deputy Tom Watson, Deputy Doug Strain and Justin Clairborne showed up and located me with our cell phones. Then Deputy Doug Strain and Justin Clairborne hiked in and found me in that jungle, and made a trail for us to walk out. My legs and ankles were just about shot and I was slowing them down. Then I twisted my ankle and was even slower. So they called in the volunteer fire departments of Green Valley and Millington. They were all wonderful. They gave me water and offered food then got me into a litter and carried me out. When we all got to the staging area they had the paramedics from Bay City Ambulance check me out. I was fine; just weak and dehydrated. The lessons I have learned: always carry an emergency pack, pay attention to where you are at all times and carry your cell phone fully charged. It helps to find you. Don’t be embarrassed to ask for help. These people really enjoy helping you and that’s what they train for. I want to thank Deputies Tom Watson, Doug Strain and Justin Clairborne for an exceptional up and beyond call of rescuing me. I would also like to thank the search and rescue team of Steve and Patty Sander, and their dog, Jaf. Thomas Morgan Bandon

Nation and State Jealous girlfriend must watch her step on the dance floor DEAR ABBY: I have been dating my boyfriend, “Jose,” for a year. Before that, we were friends for five years. Ever since I’ve known him,he and his halfsister, “Blanca,” have danced together at parties. We’re all in our mid-20s. They dance salsa, merengue and other styles of music together. I used to think it was cute, but now that DEAR Jose and I are a couple, I find it annoying and a little creepy. He says Blanca loves to dance and can’t always find good JEANNE partners. PHILLIPS She gets mad when he dances with me instead of her during her favorite songs. I told Jose he can dance only with me at the parties or only with her. Not both. I don’t want to share him, and honestly, people joke that it’s incestuous. How can I make him understand how much this bothers me? What can I say to his halfsister when she gives me the evil eye? My relationship with her is friendly, but it was better before I started dating her half-brother. — TAKES ONLY TWO TO TANGO DEAR TAKES ONLY TWO: If you want to hang onto Jose, simmer down and be less heavy-handed. Dictating who he can dance with only makes you appear to be jealous, insecure and controlling. Because he and Blanca have danced together for so long, it’s understandable that she expects to dance with him. My advice is to be gracious and hold onto your temper, because if you don’t, your relationship with Blanca will no longer be friendly, and it could cost you your boyfriend. DEAR ABBY: My motherin-law is a good person, but she never wants to be around us or our children. She lives only 30 minutes away, has only one child (my husband) and has been widowed for more than five years. She has never called our house, didn’t visit when the kids were born and usually mails gift cards at birthdays and Christmas. My own mother died a few months ago.Our kids are almost 13 and 10, so they’re not babies anymore. I try to reach out to her, but she is cold and not responsive. What else can I do? — NO GRANDMA IN AUSTIN, TEXAS DEAR NO GRANDMA: What does your husband think about this? Has his mother always been this way? Could the problem be that she dislikes you or is disappointed in her son? There is no way to force a connection on someone who is unwilling, and I’m not sure you would even want to. It appears your mother-in-law isn’t maternal and prefers her independence. I’m sorry that your feelings are hurt,but if you crave closeness with an older woman, you will have to look elsewhere to find it. DEAR ABBY: My family is having a Thanksgiving conundrum. My uncle and his wife have offered to host the holiday. My uncle hesitated about having it because he recently lost his job.My grandmother decided that each couple should chip in $50 to pay for the dinner.(The total amount will be $300.) We will all make and bring dishes with us as well. Their children are not being asked to pay anything. My grandmother thinks this is a good idea because it would cost us more than $50 to go out to dinner for Thanksgiving, but some of us think it’s odd that we’re being charged to attend our family’s dinner. No one else in the family is able or willing to host, so the only other option would be going to a restaurant. Any thoughts? — TURKEY TROUBLES IN PHILADELPHIA DEAR TURKEY TROU BLES: Just this — pay up! And while you’re offering thanks at the dinner table,be grateful that the person in need of financial help this holiday season isn’t you.

Americans not willing to spend without deals

The Associated Press

Warren County Undersheriff Shawn Lamouree poses in front the department’s mine resistant ambush protected vehicle, or MRAP, on Nov. 13, 2013, in Queensbury, N.Y. The hulking vehicles, built for about $500,000 each at the height of the war, are among the biggest pieces of equipment that the Defense Department is giving to law enforcement agencies under a national military surplus program.

Spoils of war: Police depts. getting leftover Iraq trucks QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) — Coming soon to your local sheriff: 18-ton, armor-protected military fighting vehicles with gun turrets and bulletproof glass that were once the U.S. answer to roadside bombs during the Iraq war. The hulking vehicles, built for about $500,000 each at the height of the war, are among the biggest pieces of equipment that the Defense Department is giving to law enforcement agencies under a national military surplus program. For police and sheriff’s departments, which have scooped up 165 of the mineresistant ambush-protected vehicles, or MRAPS, since they became available this summer, the price and the ability to deliver shock and awe while serving warrants

or dealing with hostage standoffs was just too good to pass up. “It’s armored. It’s heavy. It’s intimidating. And it’s free,” said Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, among five county sheriff’s departments and three other police agencies in New York that have taken delivery of an MRAP. But the trucks have limits. They are too big to travel on some bridges and roads and have a tendency to be tippy on uneven ground. And then there’s some cost of retrofitting them for civilian use and fueling the 36,000pound behemoths that get about 5 miles to the gallon. The American Civil Liberties Union is criticizing what it sees as the increasing militarization of the nation’s

police. ACLU affiliates have been collecting 2012 records to determine the extent of military hardware and tactics acquired by police, planning to issue a report early next year. “One of our concerns with this is it has a tendency to escalate violence,” said ACLU Center for Justice senior counsel Kara Dansky. An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department military surplus program this year found that a disproportionate share of the $4.2 billion worth of property distributed since 1990 — everything from blankets to bayonets and Humvees — has been obtained by police and sheriff’s departments in rural areas with few officers and little crime.

NEW YORK (AP) — This holiday season, Americans may not spend their green unless they see more red. Despite signs that the economy is improving, big store chains like WalMart and Kohl’s don’t expect Americans to have much holiday shopping cheer unless they see bold, red signs that offer huge discounts. As a result, shoppers are seeing big sales events earlier and more often than in previous holiday seasons. Since the recession began in late 2007, stores have had to offer financially-strapped Americans ever bigger price cuts just to get them into stores. But those discounts eat away at profits. So far, WalMart, Target and Kohl’s are among more than two dozen major chains that lowered their profit outlooks for either the quarter or the year. A big reason is the expectation that they’ll have to offer huge discounts in order to get shoppers to spend. There are already signs that retailers are aggressively dis-

counting. WalMart, for instance, on Friday started matching or beating the prices that certain competitors like Best Buy are advertising for some toys and electronics for the day after Thanksgiving — known as Black Friday. Best Buy also plans to match rivals’ prices, even after customers have purchased items. And Target, better known for its whimsical advertising, is touting its prices in holiday TV ads for the first time in at least a decade. The tempered expectations, earlier discounting and lowered profit outlooks from retailers come even though there are indications that the economy is recovering. The job market is making strides. The housing market is starting to come back. And the stock market keeps hitting new highs. All that would ordinarily lead Americans to spend more. But so far, those improvements haven’t been enough to shore up consumer confidence. In fact, Americans’ confidence in the economy is at its lowest level since April.

Pension system outlook improves modestly SALEM (AP) — The financial health of Oregon’s public-employee pension fund is improving a bit. Actuaries told the board of the Public Employees Retirement System on Friday that the unfunded liability has dropped from $14 billion a year ago to $11 billion. They say the pension fund has enough money to pay 82 percent of all liabilities, up from 79 percent. The Salem Statesman Journal reports that the improving picture is a result of strong investment earnings and benefit cuts approved by the Legislature, which will lower long-term costs if they’re upheld by the state Supreme Court. Investments have growth 12 percent during 2013, higher than the assumed annual growth rate of 7.75 percent.

A hospital argued the award should be reduced to a $3 million liability cap established by state law. The Oregonian reports that Multnomah County Circuit Judge Jerry Hodson ruled Friday that dropping the award so far would be “constitutionally inadequate.” Hodson noted the case is likely headed to the Oregon Supreme Court over the legality of the Oregon Tort Claims Act limits.

Report: Lottery relies on gambling addicts PORTLAND (AP) — The Oregon Lottery is beginning an aggressive campaign to upgrade video lottery machines and bring in more players, even as research suggests that a relatively small group of problem gamblers supply a huge portion of lottery revenue. The Oregonian reports that consultants found the biggest chunk of video lottery players park in front of a machine and gamble alone until all their money is gone. The lottery raises revenue for schools, parks, business development and other programs, and the lion’s share comes from video machines, which include both video poker and line games similar to a slot machine. Critics say the government is fostering gambling addiction in order to pay its bills. Lottery Director Larry Niswender defended the lottery’s practices and denied that the agency targets problem gamblers. He also disputed data showing that an outsize share of lottery rev-

Woman was killed in standoff; shot in head TURNER. (AP) — An autopsy conducted by the Oregon State medical examiner on Sunday found that a woman who was killed Friday night while her husband was shooting at police in Turner was shot in the head. Oregon State Police are investigating the death of 23-year-old Adrian Nicole Bird as a homicide. Her boyfriend, 24-yearold Dustin Michael Bryant, was arrested after an eighthour standoff, holding Bird’s 2-year-old daughter hostage. She was not hurt. The standoff began when two Turner officers responding to a domestic disturbance at an apartment encountered Bryant and his girlfriend coming down the stairs. Police say he drew a gun and fired several shots toward the officers as Bird tried to run away.

Texas to get hit with freezing rain, sleet BY RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI The Associated Press

A storm blamed for at least eight deaths in the West was expected to bring freezing rain and sleet to parts of Texas as it continued making its way through the Southwest before moving east ahead of Thanksgiving. The National Weather Service said late Sunday night that a winter storm warning for most of North Texas had been replaced with a winter weather advisory through noon Monday. A mix of rain, light freezing rain and light sleet was expected, but meteorologist Steve Fano with the weather service’s Dallas-Fort Worth office said the temperatures would not

be as cold as initially forecast. “They will still go below freezing in some places, just not as much below freezing as we initially thought,” Fano said. Meteorologists said they expected the Arctic mass to head south and east and threaten plans for Tuesday and Wednesday as people hit the roads and airports for some of the busiest travel days of the year. More than 300 flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, representing about one-third of the scheduled departures, and a spokeswoman said deicing equipment had been prepared as officials planned for the worst in a flurry of conference calls and meetings.

Police shoot, kill man in Bend BEND (AP) — Authorities say a Bend police officer shot and killed a 31-year-old man. The shooting occurred Friday night at a home where police seized guns, heroin and methamphetamine in a drug raid earlier that same day. Oregon State Police say officers were responding to a call about a possible burglary in progress when one of them encountered a man leaving the back of the home. Police did not say what prompted the officer to fire his weapon.

An ounce of prevention is cheaper than a pound of cure If the terms Snowden, NSA and “top secret information” ring a bell, it’s possible that you follow the national news and understand the issues of privacy — both national and personal. I can’t do much about the monitoring efforts. But if someone actually makes a move to steal my identity to do me harm? I can do something about that. And I would much rather choose prevention than face the daunting task of repair. EVERYDAY o w CHEAPSKATE canHI prev e n t someone grabbing my Social Security number, using it to open a creditc a r d Mary account Hunt and running that baby to the moon — before I know what’s happening? How can I prevent someone from financing a car in my name, using my identity — then crashing it and causing all kinds of damage and personal liability for me, before I can even figure out what on earth happened? I can’t. I wish I could, but don’t have the resources, network or ability to track and monitor my personal identifying information to stop someone from stealing it. No individual does. That would be logistically impossible. Let me tell you about Max, one of my staffers. Back when Max was 17, he got a tax refund from the IRS. What made that shocking is that Max didn’t have a job and hadn’t filed a tax return. He was an unemployed minor. An innocent teen. His dad and accountant were able to figure out that someone had stolen Max’s Social Security number, and used it to get a job. Of course, they reported this to the IRS and Social Security Administration and returned the check. But that wasn’t the end of it. Over the coming decade, hundreds of people have used Max’s identity to gain employment. Crazy, isn’t it? And the SS Admin cannot and will not do a thing about this. Not long ago, Max got a call from LifeLock, the company he uses to monitor his identity. Seems that one of the hundreds of people using his SS number attempted to open a credit-card account. Wham! LifeLock’s Identity Guard and Trusted ID flew into action. Max picked up the phone only to learn that LifeLock was on the other end and that the bank that was about to issue that credit card! The LifeLock customer rep explained the situation and then stayed on the line for nearly 20 minutes while Max spoke with the bank, detailing and giving the information they needed to stop the theft and also nail the perpetrator. I could go on and on about the horrors of identity theft — the way that thieves are now stealing and using children’s Social Security numbers; the way these thugs can so easily hack into bank accounts and clean them out before anyone is the wiser. I hope that your Social Security number and your kids’ too, have not been stolen. Sadly, I don’t even have that assurance for myself. But I can promise you that I don’t worry about it because I have had LifeLock Ultimate protection for nearly ten years. I love the service and find it to be one of my most reasonable forms of insurance. LifeLock Ultimate is not a free service. There is an annual premium for this protection. And I find it to be money well spent. Whether you opt for LifeLock or some other identity theft protection, make sure you’re getting preventive service, not simply a company that reports back to you once the deed is done. Use this link to get a nice discount that LifeLock is offering to our EC family. You can email Mary Hunt at mary@everydaycheapskate.com, or write to Everyday Cheapskate, P.O.

Easing of Iran sanctions could start in December PARIS (AP) — European Union sanctions against Iran could be eased as soon as December, officials said Monday, after a potentially history-shaping deal that gives Tehran six months to increase access to its nuclear sites in exchange for keeping the core components of its uranium program. The deal, announced Sunday, envisages lifting some of the sanctions that have been crippling the country’s economy. The sanctions were in response to fears that Tehran is using its nuclear program to build atomic arms. Iran denies it

wants such weapons. “A Europe-wide decision is necessary” to ease EU sanctions French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told Europe 1 radio. “That’s expected in several weeks, for a partial lifting that is targeted, reversible.” “It could be in December, it could be in January, it depends on how long the legislative process takes,” EU foreign affairs spokesman Michael Mann told reporters in Brussels. The United States and the European Union have separate sanctions on Iran. Easing the European restrictions

would affect numerous areas including trade in petrochemicals, gold and other precious metals, financial transfers to purchase food and medicine, and the ability of third countries to use EUbased firms to insure shipments of Iranian oil again. Mann said work on amending the EU regulations was already beginning, but cautioned that changes depend on the Iranian government living up to its end of the deal. “It’s important that both sides of the bargain are implementing this agreement, so we would coordinate timingwise also with the Iranian

side,” the EU spokesman said. The deal reached Sunday will allow Iran to keep the central elements of its uranium program while stopping its enrichment at a level lower than what is needed for nuclear arms. In addition to a six-month window for Iran to allow more U.N. access to nuclear sites, sanctions will be eased — notably in the oil, automotive and aviation industries — though not ended. The agreement is a first step — one that Israel has condemned as a “historic mistake” that effectively accepts Iran as a threshold nuclear

weapons state. Israel has found common cause with Saudi Arabia, which shares concerns about a nucleararmed Iran and Tehran’s growing regional influence. On his return to Tehran, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif told state television that the country was prepared for quick follow-up negotiations to keep the deal on track. “We are ready to begin the final stage of nuclear agreement from tomorrow,” said Zarif, who was greeted by hundreds of cheering students. Many Iranians appeared

upbeat about the deal and the possibility of an eventual end to sanctions, such as blocks on access to international banking networks that have crippled businesses and made once-routine transactions — such as paying tuition for a student abroad — a complicated process. But hard-line groups remained highly wary of any close cooperation with Washington. An editorial in the conservative daily Kayhan described the U.S. as a deceitful power that could renege on its pledges even if Iran sticks with its part of the deal.

Thai leader invokes internal security law amid protests

The Associated Press

Supporters of the Pakistani religious party Jammat-e-Islami and Tehreek-e-Insaf party, headed by cricketerturned politician Imran Khan, hold up their parties’ flags and chant slogans during a rally against U.S. drone strikes in Pakistani areas, in Karachi, Pakistan, on Sunday.

Pakistan deploys first domestic drones on drone strikes protest ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani military deployed its first fleet of domestically developed drones Monday, as police cracked down on a protest by demonstrators angry at the U.S. for using similar aircraft to attack Islamic militants in the country. The new Burraq and Shahpar drones will be used by the Pakistani army and air force, the military said in a statement. It was unclear whether the aircraft are armed or unarmed, and military officials did not immediately respond to request for comment. The announcement coincided with a move by Pakistani police to prevent activists protesting U.S. drone strikes from blocking trucks carrying NATO troop supplies to and from neighboring Afghanistan. The intervention was the latest chapter in a saga that began Saturday, when thousands of protesters led by Pakistani politician and cricket star Imran Khan blocked a road in northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, which is used to ship goods to and from Afghanistan. Khan’s party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, said it would block NATO shipments until the U.S. ended drone attacks. On Sunday, members of Khan’s party stopped trucks and roughed up drivers ferrying NATO supplies at a toll booth on the outskirts of

Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s provincial capital. Police were present at the scene Sunday but did not stop the protesters, some of whom were carrying wooden batons. Police officer Behram Khan said Monday that police would permit peaceful protests on the roadside, but activists would not be allowed to stop trucks as they did before. Police also opened an investigation into the activists’ actions that could lead to legal charges, he said. Covert CIA drone strikes targeting Islamic militants in Pakistan’s northwest have long been a sensitive subject, with officials regularly criticizing them in public as a violation of the country’s sovereignty. The issue is more complicated, however, since the government is known to have supported at least some of the attacks in the past. Pakistan has demanded the U.S. provide it with armed drones, claiming it could more effectively carry out attacks against militants. Washington has refused because of the sensitive nature of the technology and doubts that Pakistan would reliably target U.S. enemies. Pakistan has also been racing to develop its own armed drones but has struggled with a lack of precision munitions and advanced targeting technology, according to Pakistani military officials and civilians involved in the domestic drone

industry, all of whom spoke on condition of anonymity because of the classified nature of the work. Even if Pakistan had this technology, the small drones it has developed would have trouble carrying the kinds of missiles fired by U.S. Predator and Reaper unmanned aircraft. The Pakistani drones also have much more limited range than those developed by the U.S. Imran Khan, whose party runs the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government, has been an especially vocal critic of U.S. drone strikes. The route blocked by his activists leads to one of two crossings used by trucks to carry NATO troop supplies and equipment to and from Afghanistan. The other crossing is in southwest Baluchistan province and has not been affected by the protest. The federal government has also criticized drone strikes but has indicated it has no interest in blocking the NATO supply route, which could spark a crisis with the U.S. and other NATO countries. The police actions Monday indicated that the federal government had intervened to stop the NATO blockade. The provincial police chief in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,Nasir Durrani, ordered police to prevent protesters from stopping trucks and open an investigation into those activists who were halting vehicles on Sunday, said a statement from the police chief’s office.

BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand’s prime minister invoked an emergency law on Monday after demonstrators seeking to remove her from office occupied parts of the finance and foreign ministries. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra announced that the Internal Security Act would cover all of Bangkok and large parts of surrounding areas. Three especially sensitive districts of the capital have been under the law since August, when there were early signs of political unrest. The law authorizes officials to seal off roads, take action against security threats, impose curfews and ban the use of electronic devices in designated areas. Peaceful rallies are allowed under the law. Protesters swarmed into the two government ministries earlier Monday, overrunning several buildings and cutting electricity in an escalating campaign to topple Yingluck’s government. Protesters say they want Yingluck to step down amid claims that her government is controlled by her brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a military coup in 2006 for alleged corruption. On Sunday, more than 150,000 demonstrators took to Bangkok’s streets in

the largest rally Thailand has seen in years, uniting against what they call the “Thaksin regime.” The incursions into the finance and foreign ministries were the boldest acts yet in opposition-led protests that started last month. They highlighted the movement’s new strategy of paralyzing the government by forcing civil servants to stop working. The opposition Democrat Party, which is spearheading the protests and has lost to Thaksin-backed parties in every election since 2001, also plans to challenge the government Tuesday with a parliamentary noconfidence debate. “The protesters have escalated their rally, which previously was a peaceful one,” Yingluck said in a televised address. She said the government respected the people’s right to freely express opinions, but also had the responsibility to safeguard the country’s peace and stability and assets, along with the safety of citizens and their right to access government offices. The law will cover the city’s international airports. In 2008, anti-Thaksin demonstrators occupied Bangkok’s two airports for a week after taking over the prime minister’s office for three months.

Modest deal avoids potential deadlock at UN climate talks BY KARL RITTER The Associated Press WARSAW, Poland — Avoiding a last-minute breakdown, annual U.N. climate talks limped forward Saturday with a modest set of decisions meant to pave the way for a new pact to fight global warming. More than 190 countries agreed in Warsaw to start preparing “contributions” for the new deal, which is supposed to be adopted in 2015. That term was adopted after China and India objected to the word “commitments” in a standoff with the U.S. and other developed countries. The fast-growing economies say they are still developing countries and shouldn’t have to take on as strict commitments to cut carbon emissions as industrialized nations.

“In the nick of time, negotiators in Warsaw delivered just enough to keep things moving,” said Jennifer Morgan, of the World Resources Institute, an environmental think tank. The conference also advanced a program to reduce deforestation and established a “loss and damage” mechanism to help island states and other vulnerable countries under threat from rising seas, extreme weather and other climate impacts. The wording was vague enough to make rich countries feel comfortable that they weren’t going to be held liable for climate catastrophes in the developing world. U.S. and other rich countries also resisted demands to put down firm commitments on how they plan to fulfill a pledge to scale up climate

financing to developing countries to $100 billion by 2020. That money is meant to help developing countries transition to cleaner energy sources and adapt to shifts in climate that can affect agriculture, human health and economies in general. “I think we had a good outcome in the end. It was quite a tough negotiation,” U.S. climate envoy Todd Stern said.

Dungeness season start delayed NEWPORT (AP) — Oregon Fish and Wildlife officials say the commercial Dungeness crab season on the Oregon coast will be delayed through at least Dec. 15 to allow the crabs to fill with meat. The ocean season normally opens Dec. 1 but officials said Friday the opening can be delayed to provide a better product to consumers. Last year’s season didn’t open until Dec. 31.

Oregon Virtual Academy’s average student-to-teacher ratio is 65-1, Hollensteiner said, versus an average of 251 in North Bend’s and ORCO’s brick and mortar schools. On Oct. 22, the school district and the teachers’ union met for the seventh negotiation meeting. The parties have been engaged in negotiations since April 15. The parties were supposed to meet again Oct. 30, but the meeting was canceled. Now, the school district has offered binding arbitration “but with parameters,” Hollensteiner said in an email. “The union group and the board has to approve what the teams have agreed to in binding arbitration and if they don’t then (there’s) no agreement,” she said.

On the last day of the 2012-2013 school year, teachers showed up to a negotiations meeting after “an exhausting two weeks of testing and reporting, squeezing in those last-ofthe-year meetings and packing up materials as well as our classrooms,” Slack said. Teachers didn’t hear any appreciation from the board or superintendent for the work they had done, she said. “It was a sad awakening, but it spoke volumes,” she said. “...We hear platitudes at the big meeting on the first day of school and are told how much we are appreciated.

Lakers sweep alumni THE WORLD

Cottage Grove’s Johnny Conrad blocks a field goal attempt by Ian Bream on Saturday night to end North Bend’s football season in the last seconds of the game at Autzen Stadium. The kick would have tied the game and forced overtime.

Cottage Grove edges Bulldogs in football semifinals BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

EUGENE — One by one, North Bend’s seniors shared long hugs with head coach Gary Prince on the turf at Autzen Stadium late Saturday night. The hugs came a week too early and were emotional for the wrong reason: North Bend’s hopes of a state championship in football had been derailed by Cottage Grove in a heartbreaking 37-34 defeat. The Lions got a clutch touchdown in the final two minutes and blocked a field goal attempt on the last play of the game. They then celebrated earning a trip to the championship game against Ridgeview, which beat Philomath 49-17 in Saturday’s other semifinal. Most of North Bend’s players, meanwhile, left the field with tears in their eyes. It was an especially tough loss for the seniors. Their final three seasons they lost in the quarterfinals, the championship game and, Saturday, in the semifinals. “I have good memories with

The teams traded leads six times in the second half, but it was the Lions that got the last score in what became a roller coaster of a fourth quarter. North Bend went in front with 9:06 to go when quarterback Cam Lucero initially bobbled a high snap on a play from the 3-yard line

and then raced around the left end to score. The Lions moved to North Bend’s 33-yard line, but quarterback Scotty Hitner misfired on a fourth-down pass when receiver Brad Bonds slipped while running his pattern. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the Lions got another chance when North Bend wasn’t able to move the ball on its possession. Cottage Grove took the ball on its own 35 with 4:45 to go in the

Season ends for Timbers Real Salt Lake reaches MLS Cup ■

PORTLAND (AP) — Long after all the fans had gone and the turf was being vacuumed of confetti, Real Salt Lake was still celebrating its Western Conference championship. Aided by a boom box, RSL players sang and danced as they headed for their bus following Sunday night’s 1-0 victory over the Portland Timbers. The win gave Salt Lake a 5-2 aggregate advantage in the two-leg conference final. It also gave the team a spot in the MLS Cup against Sporting Kansas City on Dec. 7. “It’s a good win for the team,” said Robbie Findley, who scored the only goal in the second leg. “I think everybody put in the hard work, and when you have that, when you have all the guys committed to working hard and doing their jobs, you win games. We feel good right now, but we have one more to go.” Salt Lake, which won the league championship in 2009,

game, and twice appeared doomed. The first time came when Hitner was called for intentional grounding while trying to avoid a sack, leaving the Lions facing fourth-and-21. He hit Bonds with a pass over the middle, about 8 yards short of a first down, but North Bend wasn’t able to come up with a tackle until he had advanced past the marker. Cottage Grove again was in trouble when Mason Laird tackled Bonds for a 3-yard loss on a third down play, leaving the Lions facing fourth and 14. This time, Hitner hit Brandon Boxberger in stride for the first down, and again a few plays later for a go-ahead 15yard touchdown. “We practiced those plays this week,” Hitner said later, adding that Bonds has routinely made big plays during what has become a magical season for the Lions. “Me and him and Oscar Rauda haven’t stopped playing football since we lost to Baker (in the playoffs) last season,” Hitner said.

The Southwestern Oregon Community College men’s basketball team improved to 2-0 on the season by beating the SWOCC alumni team 94-74 on Saturday. In the past, the alumni contest had been a scrimmage. This year, it was considered an actual game, Laker coach Trevor Hoppe said. “It was a tight game,” he said. “We were up 49-42 at half and continued to get out and run and were able to get a nice lead and hold on for the win.” Two members of the Lakers had double-doubles. Sophomore Dexter Williams had 23 points and 11 rebounds and freshman Jordan Willis had 13 points and 13 rebounds. “We had six guys in double figures,” Hoppe said. “That’s always a good thing.” Anthony Heintzman had 14 points an Da’Lorian Sampson, Will Dolan and LaDarrell Mongkholtham had 10 each. “They played a zone the whole game, so we had to be patient at times and share the basketball, and that showed with 21 assists,” Hoppe said. Williams had a team-best six assists an also had four steals for SWOCC. Three members of the alumni team had more than 10 points. LaMont Swinson had a team-best 14, while Lee Van Pelt had 12 and Adam Decker 11. Hallis Hak and Cody Cozad both scored nine points. The Lakers will be in Longview, Wash., for the Lower Columbia Tournament right after Thanksgiving, facing the host Red Devils in the first round. “That’s always a good tournament,” Hoppe said. “We have a couple days to get ready for them.”

Real Salt Lake midfielder Luis Gil, right, chases the ball ahead of Portland Timbers midfielder Diego Chara during Sunday’s match. took a 4-2 lead two weeks ago at Rio Tinto Stadium in the first game of the conference final. Salt Lake has been to the playoffs for six straight seasons, the longest active streak in MLS. It lost to Seattle in the conference semifinals last season. RSL advanced to this year’s conference final by eliminating the two-time defending league champion Galaxy in the semis. Sunday’s victory extended RSL’s unbeaten streak against Portland to 10 straight matches. The Timbers remain winless against Real Salt Lake since their first meeting when Portland joined MLS in the 2011 season. Portland went into the match with just one home loss this season. The Timbers were looking to

become the first team in nine years to come back from a two-goal shortfall in the second match of an aggregate-goals series. Portland appeared to score off a corner in the 15th minute but the goal was waived off by the referee because of a foul in the box, frustrating the sellout crowd at JeldWen Field. Findley had a rebound goal in the 29th minute. The RSL reserves spilled off the bench to join the celebration on the sideline, while Timbers first-year coach Caleb Porter looked on with pursed lips. Portland had a second goal nullified in the 33rd minute when Futty Danso was called offside by the linesman. SEE TIMBERS | B2

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Oregon running back De’Anthony Thomas said earlier this week that it was no big deal to play in the Rose Bowl. The Ducks had already done that. The national championship was their goal. Now both are off the table, and their four-year run of playing in the BCS looks cooked, too. A lower-tier bowl could be all that’s left. No. 5 Oregon started slow and had trouble containing Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey all day, bumbling its way to a 42-16 loss to the Wildcats on Saturday that knocked the Ducks out of the national championship picture and possibly a BCS bowl. “It hurts,” Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota said. “I haven’t been blown out like this in my life. It was hard to see this one coming. Arizona was coming off consecutive home losses, the most disappointing last week’s toestubbing against Washington State. Oregon had a raced through most of its schedule, a loss to Stanford putting a dent in its national championship hopes, but a Rose Bowl bid still on the table. The Wildcats (7-4, 4-3 Pac-12) turned the tables on the fastpaced Ducks, eschewing the normal slow-it-down routine most teams play against them by keeping their foot on the throttle.

With Carey bursting through the line to punish defenders and B.J. Denker dinking and dashing with a variety of fakes, the Wildcats jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead and kept going for their first win over a top-five team since knocking off No. 2 Oregon in 2007. Oregon (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12) gave the Wildcats plenty of help with three turnovers and turning it over twice more on downs. Carey was the workhorse for Arizona as he has been all season, carrying a school-record 48 times for 206 yards and four touchdowns to break Art Luppino’s career record of 48 total touchdowns set from 1953-56. Carey also reached 3,913 career yards rushing, breaking the mark of 3,824 set by Trung Canidate from 1996-99. Denker threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns, ran for 102 more and Arizona had 304 yards rushing, a season-high against Oregon. “It’s a great feeling,” said Denker, who was 19 of 22 passing. “This is a crazy win for our program, for our coaching staff, for our players, for our seniors. Everything went great today.” Not for Oregon. The normally high-flying Ducks couldn’t keep up in the Wildcats’ final home game of the season. SEE DUCKS | B5

Sports Clippers feast on short-handed Bulls LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jared Dudley scored a season-high 21 points, Chris Paul added 16 points and 17 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers jumped all over the Chicago Bulls in Derrick Rose’s absence for a 121-82 victory Sunday. J.J. Redick scored 19 points and B l a k e Griffin had 15 points and 12 rebounds in the Pacific Division-leading Clippers’ seventh win in nine games. Los Angeles finished strong in a stretch of four games in five days, posting the biggest margin of victory over Chicago in franchise history. Luol Deng scored 22 points as the Bulls got off to a rough start to their latest stretch without Rose, who tore cartilage in his right knee Friday night in Portland. The 2011 NBA MVP headed home to Chicago to prepare for surgery today, when Chicago should find out how long he’ll be sidelined. Kirk Hinrich had nine points and seven assists while starting in place of Rose, who missed last season while recovering from surgery on his left knee. Lakers 100, Kings 86: Reserve forward Xavier Henry scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Pau Gasol had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead Los Angeles over Sacramento. Steve Blake finished with 12 assists, nine points and five rebounds. Blake, who has started all 14 games for the Lakers at point guard in place of the injured Steve Nash, has recorded double digits in assists in each of the past five. Greivis Vasquez led Sacramento with 20 points. Thunder 95, Jazz 73: Kevin Durant scored 19 points and Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 11 rebounds to

help Oklahoma City extend its best season-opening start at home with a win over struggling Utah. The Thunder (9-3) played without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, who sat out to rest his surgically repaired right knee. Even without Westbrook, Oklahoma City’s lead swelled to as many as 37 points in the third quarter. Durant, the NBA’s leading scorer at 29.5 points per game, didn’t play in the fourth quarter — finishing with nine rebounds and hitting 12 of 13 free throws. Enes Kanter and Rudy Gobert led the Jazz with 10 points apiece. Pistons 109, Nets 97: Reserve Rodney Stuckey scored a season-high 27 points and Detroit sent Brooklyn to a fifth straight loss and sole possession of last place in the Atlantic Division. The Nets, with their enormous payroll and enormous expectations, fell to 3-10, a half-game behind the New York Knicks, and were hearing boos at Barclays Center in the second half. Greg Monroe had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Pistons, who bounced back from consecutive losses to Atlanta. . Joe Johnson made eight 3pointers and scored a seasonhigh 34 points, but the shorthanded Nets couldn’t overcome another cold night from Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, who were a combined 7-for-22. Suns 104, Magic 96: Goran Dragic scored 23 points and Gerald Green added 20 to lead Phoenix over Orlando. Two days after stopping a four-game losing streak at Charlotte, the Suns took the lead early in the first quarter and never relinquished it. Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 20 points.

“There were some plays we made mistakes on,” he said. “In a game like this, you can’t have those mistakes.” One example was the Bulldogs not making the fourth-down tackle on Bonds. Earlier in the game, a holding penalty on a punt attempt cost North Bend 26 yards in field position because the Bulldogs were forced to rekick and Cottage Grove took advantage of the short field, getting a field goal by Bonds that left the Lions with a 17-14 halftime lead. The advantage only lasted two plays into the second half, with Lucero connecting with Matthews on a 67-yard touchdown pass. The Lions answered with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Hitner to Boxberger, and Lucero hit Laird for a 10yard score. Late in the third quarter, Hitner hit Rauda with a 5-yard touchdown pass, setting up the dramatic final 12 minutes. “It could have gone either way,” Lucero said. “They had more points at the end of the game.” Hitner had a lot to do with that. He completed 29 of 45 passes for 282 yards and had three touchdown passes. Hitner also rushed for 89 yards and two more touchdowns. Hitner’s only mistake was an interception by Zack Hawk on Cottage Grove’s second possession, though the Lions’ first drive ended when Jake Buck tackled

Boxberger a yard short of the goal line on a fourth-andgoal play. Hitner’s favorite target was Bonds, who finished with 16 catches for 128 yards. North Bend did most of its damage on the ground, with Lucero in too much pain to throw the ball in the first half. Laird finished with 141 yards rushing, including an explosive 51-yard touchdown run for North Bend’s second score. Lucero rushed for 126 yards and two touchdowns and Hawk added 43 more yards. Lucero and backup quarterback Levi Rider passed for 191 yards, with Matthews hauling in four balls for 144 yards. Lucero said he knew he would have to throw the ball for the Bulldogs to have a Prince was chance. impressed with his effort. “He gutted it out,” Prince said. “We tell the kids to push pain in the back of their minds, and he did that.” Prince credited Roberts, a Marshfield graduate, with coming up with a great game plan for Cottage Grove, but added that he was delighted with his own team’s effort in the loss. “I’m very proud of these kids,” he said. “They battled.” Laird said the same after the final game of his stellar career. “My only regret is this is my last time playing with these guys,” he said. “I’ve had a lot of fun. Coach Prince has been like a father to me.”

the match well from there.” Porter said the officiating wasn’t to blame, but he couldn’t understand why the Timbers’ first goal was called back. He called it a “phantom foul.” “I’m left scratching my head as to what he saw on that play,” Porter said. The Timbers outshot Real Salt Lake 18-7 for the match. “You could see their maturity, you could see their experience,” Porter said about Salt Lake. “And they did what they needed to do.” Salt Lake was without striker Alvaro Saborio, the team’s leading scorer with 12 goals this season, because of a right hip flexor injury that

also kept him out of the first leg. He did not travel to Portland. Salt Lake defender Chris Wingert was also out because of a broken rib and collapsed lung from the first leg. Meanwhile, Portland’s top scorer, Diego Valeri, had struggled with an adductor injury, but practiced at full speed this week and started. Sporting advanced to the final with a 2-1 victory over Houston in the second leg of the Eastern Conference final on Saturday. The teams played to a scoreless draw in the first match. It’s Sporting’s first trip to the MLS Cup since 2004.

Portland’s Mo Williams, left, is restrained by a referee as he fights with Golden State’s Andrew Bogut during the second half Saturday.

Blazers stretch win streak to 10 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Wes Matthews had a pretty good seat for Portland’s 10th straight win. It just happened to be in the Trail Blazers’ locker room. One of three players ejected in the third quarter following a scuffle with Golden State, Matthews spent the final 15 minutes watching the game on TV with teammate Mo Williams after both players were tossed. The two players saw yet another dramatic comeback by one of the biggest surprise teams in the Western Conference. LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and 21 rebounds and the Trail Blazers beat the Warriors 113-101 on Saturday. “That inspired us,” said Matthews of the altercation that resulted in six technical fouls in addition to the ejections. “We got better from it, we got stronger from it. Mo and I were continuing to cheer. They couldn’t hear us, but we were continuing to cheer.” One night after rallying from 21 down to beat the Chicago Bulls 98-95, Portland again had to play from behind, but rode a big fourth quarter from

Aldridge to keep the winning streak going. Aldridge made 11 free throws in the fourth quarter to highlight his sixth double-double this season. Matthews had 23 points while Bay Area native Damian Lillard added 20 points and nine assists for the Blazers. “We rode LaMarcus in the second half,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “He took it inside, got to the free throw line, made his free throws, offensive rebounds. He did it all and we rode him.” The Blazers, playing the second half of a back to back, appeared to be tiring late in the third quarter when things got chippy between the teams not long after Matthews was whistled for a technical foul when Aldridge was knocked flat on his back. Moments later, Portland reserve center Joel Freeland and Golden State’s Andrew Bogut then got into a shoving match in front of the Warriors bench. Aldridge joined the fray, which quickly escalated. At one point, Matthews was stopped after charging toward a group of Golden State players, while Warriors reserve Draymond

4D

Green had to be restrained by several teammates and coaches. “Everybody was sticking up for everybody,” Stotts said. “The game was kind of going back-and-forth. I don’t know if we had a lot going, but I thought it really brought us together.” Referees conferred for several minutes following the dust-up and watched replays on a monitor before issuing six technical fouls and three ejections. Matthews and Williams, along with Green, were all tossed. Golden State, which led 77-63 at the time, couldn’t hold on. “We did not respond once the altercation took place,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. “We gave them life by not doing what we were doing the entire first half. You have to be able to sustain it. We did not and we paid the price because of it.” Portland pulled within 84-81 heading into the fourth then went on a 12-2 run to take the lead for good. Aldridge, who missed six of his first seven shots, scored 15 points over the final 12 minutes while going 11 of 14 from the free throw line.

Laird, Lucero lead North Bend From Page B1 Cottage Grove coach Gary Roberts said he wasn’t surprised. “We called the plays and the kids executed them,” he said. “I’ve learned to never doubt our kids and the things they do — especially against North Bend.” Even after Boxberger’s touchdown, the Bulldogs were able to get into position to try a field goal. Quarterback Cam Lucero, who was limited because of a shoulder injury suffered a week earlier against Scappoose, drove the Bulldogs to Cottage Grove’s 15-yard line, hitting passes to Laird and Drew Matthews along the way and scrambling for 16 yards to convert a fourth down. With two seconds left on the clock, North Bend’s Ian Bream lined up for 33-yard field goal to tie the score, but the Lions got a huge surge from the left side of their line and Johnny Conrad blocked the kick. It was the second time a big kick went against the Bulldogs. In the first meeting between the teams, Bonds hit a 50-yard field goal to force overtime and the Lions ended up winning 39-38. Laird said little plays made the difference.

“If Portland scores the first goal, they have all the momentum, they’re on their home field, they’ve got their fans behind them and I think we would have been in a really, really tough place,” RSL coach Jason Kreis said. “If we score the first goal, now it’s three goals, now they get a little desperate, some heads are hanging and there’s some frustration involved. So great that we got the goal. Probably wasn’t the prettiest one we’ve ever scored, but we’ll take it and I thought we handled

Sports Ducks stay perfect on season by beating San Francisco EUGENE (AP) — Oregon forward Elgin Cook didn’t start against San Francisco. He still ended up having the biggest impact on the outcome. Cook scored 18 points, grabbed six rebounds and had three steals to lead the No. 17 Ducks to a 100-82 win over Dons on Sunday. “Elgin really helped us,” coach Dana Altman said of the redshirt sophomore transfer from Northwest Florida State. “He made some tough shots, was active on the boards. He

was a real difference maker.” Senior Mike Moser also praised his teammates’ aggressive play against the Dons. “He’s our X-factor,” said Moser, who scored 13 points and had eight rebounds. “He just brings a whole ‘nother dimension to our team.” The Ducks (4-0) had six players score in double figures, getting 17 from Damyean Dotson and 16 from Jason Calliste. Kruize Pinkins had a game-high 20 points for San Francisco, but

Oregon held the usually high-percentage shooting Dons (3-3) to 36.8 percent and 8 of 28 from 3-point range. “At the end of the game, I wanted to attack the basket but we settled for 3s,” Dons coach Rex Walters said. “We didn’t seem to fully buy into that, and that’s what it takes to play in these types of environments against a tough team like this. We were right there on the verge. We let it get away from us a little bit at the end.”

Altman criticized his team’s defensive effort after a 69-54 win last Tuesday against Utah Valley, and he said Sunday’s play was better. Still, it’s a long way from where he would like to be with a tough stretch of games upcoming. “They’re playing hard,” Altman said, “and trying to get there, but we just have a tremendous amount of work to do.” Oregon’s first three baskets were 3-pointers, but the Dons — despite missing 10 straight shots —

took the lead on a layup from Cole Dickerson with 14 minutes left in the first half. The teams traded baskets before Oregon started to pull away. Moser sparked a 10-3 run after taking a charge with 5:56 to go in the half. Dotson hadn’t scored more than nine points in a game this season and had missed all nine of his 3point attempts. Sunday, he hit his first 3-pointer with 16:06 left in the first half and he finished the game 7-for-12 shooting from the field.

Sports Patriots rally for victory THE ASSOCIATED PRESS This latest version of Brady vs. Manning was a rout. And then it wasn’t, stretching deep into overtime before New England’s biggest winning rally in franchise history gave it a 34-31 victory over Denver. In a game of turnovers in frigid and windy conditions Sunday night, Tom Brady brought the Patriots back from a 24-0 halftime hole created mostly by three lost fumbles. But Peyton Manning and Denver got sloppy in the second half, then Tony Carter had a punt hit him late in OT. New England (8-3) recovered, leading to Stephen Gostkowski’s 31-yard field goal to win it with 1:56 remaining. “We had some of those plays in the first half that didn’t really go our way,” said Brady, who is 10-4 against Manning. “It was nice to get a good bounce when we needed it. “It was not our best night, glad we won.” The bitter defeat for the visiting Broncos (9-2) ruined a superb night for running back Knowshon Moreno. He rushed for 224 yards on 37 carries and a touchdown. “Hated the way that ended, not getting a chance to get our hands on the ball,” Manning said. Brady outdueled Manning, throwing for 344 yards and three TDs, completing 34 of 50 passes. Manning was 19 for 36 for 150 yards with two TD passes. Denver took its big lead as Von Miller returned a fumble 60 yards, and two more fumbles led to Moreno’s TD and Matt Prater’s 27-yard field goal. Manning connected with Jacob Tamme for a 10yard TD in the second quarter. Then the Patriots came back. Their TDs came on passes of 5 and 14 yards to Julian Edelman, 6 to Rob Gronkowski, and Brandon Boldin’s 1-yard run. “We calmed down and played each play one play at a time, we didn’t turn the ball over in the second half,” Edelman said. “We had a lot of turnovers (early), including putting the ball on the ground, myself included. “We have done this a few times, played the situations, had guys step up.” Chargers 41, Chiefs 38: At Kansas City, Philip Rivers threw for 392 yards and three touchdowns, the winner a 26-yarder to Seyi Ajirotutu with 24 seconds remaining to end a three-game slide. Kansas City (9-2) won its first nine games, but has lost two in a row. It remained tied with Denver atop the AFC West. The Chiefs had taken the lead when Alex Smith hit Dwayne Bowe for a go-ahead score with 1:22 left. But the Chargers (5-6) still had two timeouts, and they used both as they quickly moved downfield.

Saskatchewan beats Hamilton in Grey Cup REGINA, Saskatchewan (AP) — Kory Sheets ran for a record 197 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Saskatchewan Roughriders over the Hamilton TigerCats 45-23 on Sunday night in the 101st Grey Cup game. Sheets, who briefly played for the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers, broke the Canadian Football League championship game rushing mark of 169 yards set in 1956 by Edmonton’s Johnny Bright. Sheets was especially impressive in the first half. The former Purdue star ran for 128 yards and a TD in leading Saskatchewan to a 31-6 advantage in front of a raucous hometown crowd of 44,710. He was picked as the game’s Most Valuable Player. “The one thing that led us to a dominant performance was that the fans were unreal,” Roughriders coach Corey Chamblin said. “It was unreal. From pregame warmup I knew it was going to be tough for those guys. I looked at them and said ‘I wouldn’t

Team percentages are derived by dividing a team’s actual voting points by a maximum 2625 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1550 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage. The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin, and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule strength in its formula.

Northern Illinois takes BCS Buster lead BY RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press

Northern Illinois moved ahead of Fresno State in the BCS standings and up to No. 14 as the Huskies and Bulldogs jockey to be the last BCS buster. NIU jumped two spots Sunday and Fresno State slipped one to 16th. The top three teams in the BCS standings were Alabama, unchanged: Florida State and Ohio State — the remaining undefeated teams in BCS automatic qualifying conferences. The other major college unbeatens, Northern Illinois and Fresno State, are fighting for one automatic bid. They have to finish in the top 12 of the last BCS standings, which comes out Dec. 8, or finish in the top 16 while ranking ahead of an AQ-conference champion. Central Florida is in position to win the American Athletic Conference autobid, but is 19th in the latest standings. Northern Illinois reached the BCS last season by being ranked ahead of the champion of the Big East. The Huskies then lost to Florida State in the Orange Bowl. Jordan Lynch and Northern Illinois overtook Derek Carr and Fresno State this week on the strength of better computer ratings. NIU

DUCKS From Page B1 Clinging to national-title hopes, Oregon sputtered most of the day, showing only flashes of the offensive brilliance that had them No. 2 in total offense and third in scoring entering the game. Mariota threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns, but also had two interceptions, his first since Nov. 17, 2012, against Stanford. The Ducks outgained Arizona 506-482 in total yards, but couldn’t overcome all the uncharacteristic miscues to lose consecutive road games for the first time since 2007. “We just have to think about what we did wrong and how we can come out with more motivation,” Oregon receiver Josh Huff said. “I’m not saying we weren’t motivated enough, but we just came out flat. Mariota’s first interception came on a spectacular play, kick-starting Arizona for the monumental upset. It came on Oregon’s first play from scrimmage, when Bralon Addison dropped a pass near the sideline. cornerback Arizona Shaquille Richardson snared the carom and flipped it back to teammate Scooby Wright as he was falling out of bounds. It ended Mariota’s Pac-12 record streak of pass-

is seventh in the computer ratings, while coming in 17th in the Harris poll and 20th in the USA Today coaches’ poll. Fresno State is 13th in each poll, but 17th in the computers. Jerry Palm, who analyzes the BCS for CBS.com, said he was surprised Northern Illinois made such a big move after winning at MidAmerican Conference rival Toledo last week. Fresno State stayed unbeaten with a win against Mountain West Conference foe New Mexico. Neither team has played a strong schedule, Palm said. “What baffles me is we have such a disparity in the computers between two teams that we’re splitting hairs over,” he said. “That’s a head scratcher.” Palm said NIU’s lead could be temporary as Fresno State plays tougher opponents the rest of the way. NIU plays at home against Western Michigan (1-10) on Tuesday and then faces either Buffalo or Bowling Green in the MAC championship game. Fresno State plays at San Jose State (5-5) on Friday and then either Utah State or Boise State in the Mountain West championship. The Bowl Championship Series is done after this season. The four-team College Football Playoff replaces it next year.

es without an interception at 353 and Carey followed with a 6-yard touchdown run. Oregon’s next drive ended with another drop, this one by Thomas on what would have been a big third-down gain. Arizona followed with another touchdown, a 9-yard pass from Denker to Nate Phillips along the left sideline to make it 14-0. Denker hit Terrence Miller on a 5-yard touchdown pass and Arizona’s offense ripped off 59 yards in 42 seconds for a 1-yard touchdown run by Carey that made it 28-9 at halftime. On offense, the Ducks needed over eight minutes to get their first first down and when they finally got a drive going, had to settle for Matt Wogan’s 33-yard field goal after a holding call against tight end Pharaoh Brown negated Mariota’s 6-yard TD run. Oregon raced down for a 1-yard touchdown pass from Mariota to Brown in the second quarter, but the final two drives of the half ended in failure: Thomas Tyner lost a fumble and Mariota came up short on fourth-and-2 when he was stripped of the ball. “Obviously, how we started, in every phase, that is 100 percent my fault,” Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said. “I have to figure out exactly which levers to pull and which buttons to push on.”

Washington running back Bishop Sankey dives into the end zone for a touchdown past Oregon State defender Tyrequek Zimmerman during the first half Saturday. Sankey had three of Washington’s nine touchdowns on the night.

Huskies demolish Oregon State CORVALLIS (AP) — Oregon State coach Mike Riley took this one for the team. Following a 69-27 loss at home to Washington, none of the Beavers came out of the locker room to talk to the media. “I actually told them to just let me talk and leave them out of this,” Riley said. Bishop Sankey ran for 179 yards and three touchdowns, Deontae Cooper ran for 166 yards and Dwayne Washington ran for 141 yards and two more scores, and the Huskies finished with 530 yards on the ground, secondmost for a single game in school history. Redshirt freshman Cyler Miles made his first college start and threw for 162 yards and a touchdown for Washington (7-4, 4-4 Pac12) which clinched a winning record with the victory. It was Washington’s biggest winning margin over the Beavers since a 58-6 win in

the 1991 national championship season. “There’s no getting around it,” Riley said. “We just totally failed in all parts. We’re all responsible.” Sean Mannion threw for 229 yards and a score but also threw three interceptions for the Beavers (6-5, 4-4), who lost their fourth straight. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak over the Huskies at Reser Stadium. And it was Oregon State’s worst loss since falling 35-0 at Wisconsin in 2011. Brandin Cooks had 117 receiving yards, which gave him 1,560 for the season and put him over Oregon State’s single-season record of 1,532 set by Mike Hass in 2005. He already has the school record with 110 receptions. Washington was without starting quarterback Keith Price, who injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the second quarter of the Huskies’ 41-31 loss to UCLA last weekend. Miles had

appeared in six previous games for the Huskies this season, throwing for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Sankey scored on a 3-yard run to put Washington in front 7-0 early in the game. It was his 32nd career touchdown run, tying him for second on the Huskies’ career list with Joe Steele. Sankey added a 5-yard scoring run less than three minutes later that extended Washington’s lead. Travis Coons added a 44yard field goal to make it 17-0 before the end of the first quarter. Mannion was intercepted under pressure, giving Washington the ball in the red zone and the Huskies went on to score on Coons’ 24-yard field goal. Miles found Kevin Smith in the end zone with a 28yard pass and Washington went up 27-0 before halftime. Sankey got his third touchdown on an 8-yard run in the third, before Cooper scored on a 2-yard dash to

give the Huskies a 41-0 lead. The Beavers avoided the shutout early in the fourth quarter when Mannion found Cooks with a 29-yard touchdown pass with 14:40 left in the game. Mannion went into the game leading the nation with an average of 386 yards passing per game and 33 total touchdowns. Washington pushed their lead to 62-6 with two quick scores, on Cooper’s 1-yard run and Dwayne Washington’s 32-yard dash. Oregon State answered with Victor Bolden’s 98-yard kickoff return and scored again on Chris Brown’s 3yard run to make it 62-20. Washington added a 71yard touchdown run for the Huskies before Mannion’s backup, Cody Vaz, threw a 33-yard scoring pass to Micah Hatfield for the final margin. Washington finished with 692 yards in total offense, compared to 414 for Oregon State.

ASU, Stanford will play for Pac-12 title BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PASADENA, Calif. — Taylor Kelly passed for 225 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 99 yards and another score, and No. 19 Arizona State hung on in the fourth quarter to clinch its first Pac-12 South title with a 38-33 victory over No. 14 UCLA on Saturday night. Marion Grice had 95 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving for the surging Sun Devils (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12), who will face Stanford in the league title game in two weeks. If Arizona State beats Arizona in the Territorial Cup game next week, the Sun Devils will host the Cardinal. Jaelen Strong had six catches for 91 yards and a score, but Arizona State blew most of a 22-point halftime lead over the Bruins (8-3, 5-3) and scored just three points in the second half. The Sun Devils’ defense held UCLA scoreless on its final two drives to wrap up their sixth consecutive victory. Brett Hundley passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns for UCLA, which hadn’t lost at home this season. Myles Jack rushed for 86 yards and a touchdown while the freshman linebacker played almost exclusively on offense. UCLA trailed 38-27 entering the fourth quarter, but Shaq Evans caught a 27-yard TD pass with 11:25 to play. The Bruins drove to the Arizona State 6 in the waning minutes, but Chris Young sacked Hundley for a 13-yard loss before Ka’imi Fairbairn missed a 37-yard field goal attempt. UCLA got the ball back at its 35 with 3:21 to play. Evans crossed midfield with a catch on fourth-and-5, but the penalty-prone Bruins committed three fouls on the next two snaps, and Hundley’s fourth-down pass to Jordan Payton fell well short of a first down. In the schools’ first meeting as two ranked teams since 1986, Arizona State earned the right to play for its first New

Pac-12 Recap

Linfield wins playoff opener THE WORLD Linfield opened the NCAA Division III playoffs with a convincing 42-21 win over Pacific Lutheran on Saturday. The Wildcats will host Hampden-Sydney of Virginia in the second round this week. In the win over the Lutes, Josh Yoder had three touchdown passes and two touchdown runs. Linfield scored on four of its first five possessions and never trailed. Linfield, which improved to 100, also forced three turnovers and sacked Dalton Ritchey three times. Year’s Day trip to the Rose Bowl in 17 years by dominating the Bruins for a half on that same Pasadena turf. The Sun Devils lost 42-28 to Stanford on Sept. 21, but they’ve met every challenge down the stretch in coach Todd Graham’s second season in Tempe, culminating in this resilient win over the Pac-12 South’s champion in each of the last two seasons. Stanford 63, California 13: Ty Montgomery matched a Stanford school record with five touchdowns, scoring his first four on as many touches to start the game, and the 10thranked Cardinal beat Bay Area rival California 63-13 on Saturday while also clinching a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with Oregon’s loss. Kevin Hogan threw four of his five scoring passes to Montgomery, including a 9-yard completion just before halftime that put Stanford ahead 4213. The Cardinal (9-2, 7-2 Pac-12) bounced back from last week’s loss at USC but needed No. 5 Oregon to lose one of its final two games to earn a spot in the conference championship. The Ducks lost 42-16 in Tucson, and

Stanford’s fans led chants of “Arizona! Arizona!” Hogan set career highs with 329 yards passing and the five TD passes. Cal (1-11, 0-9) lost its 10th straight to finish new coach Sonny Dykes’ disappointing debut year. Washington State 49, Utah 37: Connor Halliday threw for 488 yards and four touchdowns as Washington State beat Utah 49-37 on Saturday to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2006. Dom Williams caught a pair of touchdown passes for Washington State (6-5, 4-4 Pac-12), which also returned two interceptions for touchdowns. The Cougars have not played in a bowl game since 2003, which was also their last winning season. Utah (4-7, 1-7) has lost five in a row since upsetting No. 10 Stanford. Sophomore quarterback Adam Schulz, a former walk-on, made his second start for Utah and completed 21 of 46 passes for 347 yards. He threw three touchdown passes and was intercepted twice. Halliday completed 36 of 62 passes, and was not intercepted. Williams caught five passes for 154 yards. USC 47, Colorado 29: Sophomore Javorius Allen ran for a career-best 145 yards and three touchdowns and No. 23 Southern California beat Colorado 4729 in 29-degree weather, tied for the second-coldest kickoff in the Trojans’ storied history. The Trojans (9-3, 6-2 Pac-12) improved to 8-0 all-time against the Buffaloes (4-7, 1-7) while improving to 6-1 under interim coach Ed Orgeron. The only downer for the Trojans was getting left out in the cold in the Pac-12 race as No. 19 Arizona State held off UCLA 38-33 earlier Saturday to clinch the South division. The Buffaloes saw their slim bowl hopes come to an end in what might have been star receiver Paul Richardson’s final home game. He didn’t catch a pass until midway through the third quarter, and by that time, the Buffs trailed by 30.

Eagles rally past Portland State in finale CHENEY, Wash. (AP) — Vernon Adams’ fifth touchdown pass with 31 seconds to play lifted Eastern Washington to a wild 42-41 win over Portland State on Saturday. The Vikings (6-6, 3-5 Big Sky) had taken the lead on a

Collin Ramierz pass to Victor Dean with a minute left but Marcus Kinsella missed the extra point. Adams and the Eagles (10-2, 8-0) set a host of records in becoming the first team other than Montana to

win an outright Big Sky title since EWU’s 1997 title. Adams set the conference record for TD passes (46) and the school record for passing yards (4,059) and total offense (4,550). Cooper Kupp, who had the game-

winning TD on a 15-yard pass, earlier set a FCS record with a TD in his 12th straight game, erasing, among others, Randy Moss. EWU scored the first TD but never led again until the final point.

Sports Vettel finishes dominant run with one more victory

The Associated Press

University of Oregon runner Edward Cheserek wins the men’s NCAA Division 1 Cross Country championship in Terre Haute, Ind., on Saturday.

Oregon freshman takes title TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Oregon’s Edward Cheserek and Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino overcame wind chills in the teens and a muddy course to win NCAA cross-country titles on Saturday. The No. 3 Colorado men and top-ranked Providence women won the team titles. Oregon’s first freshman NCAA cross-country champion, Cheserek surged past defending champion Kennedy Kithuka of Texas Tech to win the 10,000meter race by 18 seconds in 29 minutes, 41.1 seconds. “I knew he was the defending champ, didn’t want to give him a chance to kick,” said Cheserek, a native of Kenya who called the conditions “no big deal.” D’Agostino won the fifth NCAA title of her distance running career but first in cross country, catching Kate Avery of Iona and Emma Bates of Boise State with less than 1.2 miles left. “This is my last crosscountry race running for Dartmouth, and I had to give it all I had,” said senior D’Agostino, the 2012 runnerup. “It’s incredible. I know I couldn’t have done it without my team here.” This was Colorado’s

fourth men’s title, all since 2001 under coach Mark Wetmore. The Buffaloes had 149 points at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course to hold off No. 1 Northern Arizona (169). No. 2 Oklahoma State, winners of three of the past four NCAA titles, finished a distant third with 230 points. “I’ll admit, I thought it was a three-team race,” said Wetmore, whose team also won in soggy conditions in 2006 in Terre Haute. The Providence women took the title in the 6,000meter race. The Friars had 141 points, No. 2 Arizona had 197 and No. 13 Butler tallied 200 in third. Big East champion Emily Sisson led the Friars with a seventh-place finish, while senior Laura Nagel was 27th and sophomore Sarah Mary Collins was 39th. Providence was runner-up in 2012. “The women were brilliant,” Providence coach Ray Treacy said. “It was a difficult course with tough conditions.” The previous best freshman finisher for the Ducks was three-time NCAA champion and Marshfield great Steve Prefontaine, who was third in 1969. Cheserek is the fourth Oregon individual

champion overall and first since Galen Rupp won in Terre Haute in 2008. The last freshman to win the title was Bob Kennedy in 1988. “He was phenomenal,” Oregon head coach Robert Johnson said. “You never want to put that kind of expectations on a freshman but everyone in the nation knew what kind of runner Edward was coming into this race. To be able to run so composed the way he did was just phenomenal.” Cheserek joins Prefontaine, Rupp and Alberto Salazar as NCAA champions for the Ducks. “He definitely put himself in the book at Oregon but it’s just a matter of how much he is going to rewrite,” said Johnson. As a team, Oregon’s men finished fifth overall with 274 points, missing a trophy by one spot. “It’s a bittersweet feeling,” Johnson said. “It’s sweet that the men improved 15 spots from the previous year but the bitter end was that we came out without a trophy.” Oregon’s women, the defending NCAA champions, finished 14th. Annie Leblanc led the Ducks, finishing 66th.

SAO PAULO (AP) — Sebastian Vettel won Formula One’s season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, matching Michael Schumacher’s record of 13 victories in a year and equaling the nine consecutive wins of Alberto Ascari. Vettel’s Red Bull teammate Mark Webber was second in his final F1 race. Fernando Alonso of Ferrari was third. Vettel, who had already wrapped up a fourth straight F1 title, was overtaken by Nico Rosberg of Mercedes at the start but regained the lead on the second lap and cruised to his second victory in Brazil, and 39th of his career. He crossed the line 10.4 seconds in front of Webber. “I think it is very difficult for me to realize, probably now and in the next couple of weeks, what we have achieved again, and in particular this year at the end of the season,” Vettel said. “At the end of the day, as I see it now, it’s just a number. But hopefully one day, when I’ve got less hair and (I’m) chubby, then it’s probably something nice to look back.” Jenson Button was fourth for McLaren’s best finish of the season. Rosberg was fifth and Mexico’s Sergio Perez finished sixth after starting 19th in his final race with McLaren. “Yes, we did it,” Vettel said on his radio before his nowtraditional donut celebration. The win capped an impressive season by Vettel, who had already broken Schumacher’s 2004 mark of seven straight wins in the same season last week at the United States GP. Vettel matched the 13 wins by Schumacher that same year, and equaled Ascari’s record of straight victories from 1952-53. The 26-year-old Vettel clinched the title at the Indian GP, becoming the youngest driver to win four world championships. Webber, who had won two

The Associated Press

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany holds up the trophy after winning the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday. of the last four races in Brazil, took his helmet off as he returned to the pits and waved to the crowd. The team wrote “Awesome. Thank you Mark,” on the pit sign as the Australian crossed the line. “It was a good finish to my career,” he said. “It was a great journey. I’ll enjoy watching F1 next year.” Webber will be joining Porsche in a sports car series in 2014. The 37-year-old Australian spent 12 seasons in F1, winning nine times and reaching the podium 42 times in 215 starts. His second place on Sunday allowed him to finish third in the drivers’ standings, repeating his feat in 2010 and ‘11. Vettel had a poor start and was overtaken by Rosberg at the first turn but was back in front with a move to the inside of his fellow German driver on Turn 1 on the following lap. Vettel had a slow pit stop near the end but remained in front thanks to a big lead over Webber before coming in. It was the first time this weekend that drivers raced on a dry track at Interlagos after the three practice sessions and qualifying were run in wet conditions. Light rain fell near the end of the race but it wasn’t enough to significantly affect the track conditions. Lewis Hamilton, who had

a flat right rear tire on his Mercedes after contact with Valtteri Bottas of Williams, finished ninth. Hamilton received a drive through penalty for causing the collision. Mercedes held on to second place in the constructors’ championship, finishing ahead of Ferrari and Lotus. Red Bull was the champion. It was the last race before significant engine changes debut in F1 next year. Teams will have to switch from 2.4litre V8 engines to a 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged unit, a move that will demand significant alterations in the design of cars and make predictions nearly impossible. Home-crowd favorite Felipe Massa, in his final race with Ferrari before joining Williams, finished a disappointing seventh after a drive-through penalty halfway through the race for crossing a pit line. Massa, who was fourth when he was penalized, will be replaced by world champion K imi Raikkonen next year. Perez, being replaced by rookie Kevin Magnussen of Denmark next season, had a remarkable race in his farewell from McLaren. He had started 19th after a fivespot grid penalty for having to change a gear box following a crash in qualifying on Saturday.
