Keiser outlines next venture BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

BANDON — Now that the Oregon Parks Commission has approved the concept of a land swap that could clear the way for the Bandon Links golf complex, Mike Keiser’s vision for the gorse-choked area is closer to reality. Keiser owns the renowned Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, but has proposed the land swap through a separate company he started in Coos County, Bandon Biota LLC. The process took longer than Keiser hoped and will cost more than he initially expected, but, in an interview with The World this week, he said he’s delighted it appears headed toward final approval.

“Frankly, I give a lot of credit to Tim Wood, who was really tough,” Keiser said of the State Parks director. Under state rules, a transfer like this one requires overwhelming public benefit. “My initial offer, I thought, was extremely generous, and he made me double my offer, to go from beneficial to the public to overwhelming public benefit,” Keiser said. “I was gratified the board agreed with Tim Wood and supported the idea.” In the land exchange, Bandon Biota would transfer 208 acres in the Bandon area into the state parks system, provide $450,000 in matching funds to help the state purchase property at Whale Cove near Depoe Bay and $2.5 million to buy a portion of a ranch in

Grant County, and give the state $300,000 for gorse control in Coos and Curry counties. Bandon Biota would receive 280 acres in the Bandon State Natural Area south of town. While giving conditional approval for the swap last month, the Commission asked parks staff for additional documentation on the various aspects of the exchange. A public comment period ended Friday. If the Commission approves the swap at its February meeting, the project still needs to go through the local permitting process. But Keiser hopes to be able to start working on specifics of the project. First, he hopes the state will allow Gil SEE BANDON | A8

Assistant principal to guide NB schools BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

NORTH BEND — Bill Yester’s first decision as acting superintendent was to cancel school. In open session Thursday afternoon, the North Bend school board voted unanimously to appoint Yester as acting superintendent, effective immediately. Yester has served as North Bend High’s assistant principal for the last eight years. Just a few hours after his appointment, he made the call to cancel school on Friday due to inclement weather. BJ Hollensteiner announced her retirement Tuesday morning after seven and a half years as superintendent of the North Bend school district. Her retirement takes effect Dec. 31. School board chair Megan Jacquot said Hollensteiner will be on medical leave until that point. “I apologize for any inconvenience and anxiety this may have caused to staff,” Jacquot said. “Health and family issues sometimes change.” Yester said this week has been “a whirlwind.” “Dr. Hollensteiner was a great leader and taught us a lot of things,” he said. “She gave us a great I love this base to work off of. district and it’s We have a lot of still, but a great place to challenges we have people in work. We have this district who will be able to handle a great faculty, those challenges.” One of those great staff and challenges — and Yester’s top priority I’m very proud — is settling the to be part of it. teacher contract that is heading into Bill Yester mediation on Jan. 9. Acting NB superintendent The school board and North Bend E d u c a t i o n Association have been unable to reach an agreement after months of negotiations. Jacquot said Hollensteiner will help Yester as needed as he takes on the role of leading the school district. As of Jan. 1, Yester’s title will change to “interim superintendent.” Jacquot said the board was looking for someone local and familiar with the district’s issues, as well as someone with the “qualifications, integrity and solid relationships with stakeholders in the community and staff.” “Bill Yester is the one person who fits those criteria,” she said. She said Hollensteiner’s severance agreement is a confidential document that will not

COOS BAY — The captain’s back in town, and this time he’s sticking around. “Captain” Jonny Rush and his nautically decorated schoolbus are taking up residence at 1150 S. Front St. in Coos Bay, just west of the Coal Bank Slough bridge. The bus — which Rush calls “Red Dog” — turned heads when he rolled into town over the summer. “I left here in July and had such a great time,” he said. Now, he’s secured a long-term lease for the property to sell fish alongside U.S.

This mystery ship, parked in south Coos Bay, sells fish Highway 101. Rush, who constantly wears a white sea captain’s hat, said he’s been selling fish out of the bus for almost 20 years. Large chest freezers inside the bus store hundreds of pounds of seafood, which Rush sells up and down the West Coast. “I just came from Centralia (Wash.),” he said.

Rush regularly stocks sea bass, lingcod and halibut, which he purchases from processors in the form of large “chowder” chunks and sells at lower cost than filets. Like many fishmongers, he stresses that all his product is chemical-free. This year, he said, he’s branching out a bit with an offering not commonly found in Oregon fish markets: snow crab. One of his go-to processors recently procured 2,000 pounds of the deepwater crustacean, which is found in the northern Pacific. Rush said he plans to sell the snow crab SEE FISH | A8

‘Pearl’ survivor thrives meeting visitors BY AUDREY MCAVOY The Associated Press

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii — Herb Weatherwax cruises the open-air grounds of the visitors center at Pearl Harbor on a motorized scooter dubbed “Herb’s Hot Rod.” When a woman notices his blue and white cap embroidered with the words “Pearl Harbor Survivor,” he coaxes her over.

Alleged NB gunman now faces two trials


Snow threat closes Bay Area schools Coos Bay and North Bend students won’t have to make up their day off Friday at the end of the school year. Both Coos Bay and North Bend school districts canceled school Friday due to the forecast of snow and freezing temperatures. Coos Bay school superintendent Dawn Granger said the district already has one “weather-related make-up day” built in, so the school year won’t extend any further into the summer. North Bend school board chair Megan Jacquot said when the district builds its calendar every year, four to five extra days are always included in case of snow days. Myrtle Point, Bandon, Reedsport and Coquille schools decided not to call off school early, instead waiting to see what weather

COQUILLE — A Coos County judge has decided to severe two charges from an 11-count indictment against a North Bend businessman. David Wonnacott, 42, was already scheduled for trial for the attempted murder this past summer of a rival tattoo business owner. He will now face a separate trial on charges of tampering with a with a witness and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The outcome of a motion hearing on Friday means that Wonnacott, 42, now has trial dates set in February and March of 2014. The defendant is alleged to have pulled up in a vehicle outside a competing North Bend tattoo business one morning, pulled a handgun and tried to shoot the owner. The gun didn’t go off and the two men wrestled for the weapon until the butt of the gun was brought down on

Crab start date set BY TIM NOVOTNY The World

CHARLESTON — The start of the commercial Dungeness crab season on the Oregon coast is set to start on Dec. 16, after a twoweek delay. On Thursday, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife made the announcement, noting that the season was delayed because crab along some parts of the coast did not measure up during preseason testing. Hugh Link, executive director of the Oregon Crab Dungeness Commission, said there were three areas of concern, including Astoria and Newport, but that recent testing showed “nice, full crab for all of the Oregon coast.”

Ready for some butter and dinner, a Dungeness crab being off loaded from the fishing boat Loraine C in Charleston. Crabbers just got the word they can head out on the morning of Dec. 13 to drop their pots and the harvest begins three days later. Commercial crabbers are allowed to set their gear three days before the season opens, so ocean watchers will see the lights of crab boats off most of the coast as early as 8 a.m. Dec. 13.

the victim’s head. The suspect then reportedly fled. Wonnacott was later arrested at the Eugene Airport as he got off a plane returning from Nevada. The tampering and felon in possession of a firearm charges were added to a superseding indictment in October. They were brought after a Coos County Jail deputy found a total of 29 handwritten letters from Wonnacott to another inmate, Victoria Hill. The letters were discovered during a routine check of Hill’s cell and, prosecutors say, they showed evidence of a conspiracy to keep witnesses from testifying. The first trial is now set for Feb. 4-6, with an omnibus hearing scheduled for midJanuary. Wonnacott faces a total of nine counts in that trial, including attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, and menacing. The second trial is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. on March 20.

Link says the news is a great relief for fishermen. “I think they’re all glad to have a date for them to start. It’s good news, and we’ll now have Oregon Dungeness crab for Christmas.” There is one big step remaining in the process. According to Link, fishermen and processors will be meeting on Monday and Tuesday for negotiations to set an opening price. Those negotiations will be overseen by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The commercial Dungeness crab season on the Oregon coast is scheduled to open Dec. 1 each year. Recreational harvest of Dungeness crab in the ocean off Oregon opened as scheduled on Dec. 1. The recreational harvest of Dungeness crab in Oregon’s bays and estuaries is open year round.

Seeing ourselves with a visitor’s eye Our view When we see ourselves as others do, the good shows through.

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

When you look at your community, what do you see? Just as we look at our image in the mirror and notice every little wrinkle, sometimes we look at the place we call home and see only the flaws. That’s just human nature. When the American Institute of Architects came to this region two years ago and wrote their Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) report, one of the team’s recommendations was: “Look at the communities through a visitor’s eyes. This is not to say the community should create a

place for visitors – the focus should always be on local residents first. If the community works to create a place where people want to live and work, visitors will always find it.” What’s that mean: “ … through a visitor’s eyes?” The SDAT report isn’t talking here about making our region attractive to visitors necessarily. They aren’t talking about generating tourism. What they’re saying is more about attitude and how we see ourselves. Here’s an example: You greet a newcomer to town; someone who’s moved here. Do you welcome them and

say they picked a great place to raise a family? Or, do you say something more like: “Why’d you come here?” with a tone of amazement. If you’re a long-term resident and haven’t stopped to look around lately, you may have forgotten the dramatic, awe-inspiring coastline here, or the inviting forests. Maybe it’s slipped your mind, the rich history and traditions represented in the downtowns. And you really are open and friendly to visitors. They’ve noticed even though you may not. Thousands of tourists come here every year. They came, many on return visits, because they saw

something they liked here. They found enjoyment here. They found sights or activities they want to experience again and again. Mike Keiser, the man who looked at acres of gorse and envisioned the Bandon Dunes world-class golf course, calls the South Coast: “the crown jewel of the Pacific Coast.” Obviously, he sees something great here. What is it that they see that we sometimes don’t? Well, try looking at our communities through a visitor’s eyes. You may find something you like, too.

Cheers Jeers


Hail to the chief Welcome to Mark Meaker, North Bend’s new fire chief. Seems the guy just can’t stay out of a fire house. He retired in 2010 as chief in Logan, Utah, after a 40-year career.

The biggest failure I can see at the Jordan Cove site is what engineers term an N minus failure. This means multiple

systems failure, and events like fire, earthquakes and tsunami. If the plant lost refrigeration, which keeps the natural gas in a liquid state, it would expand. In a liquid state natural gas is compressed 200 times. If the LNG warms it will be vented into the air because it will expand 200 times. The plant will have an emergency containment system in the event LNG leaks. The ship in the bay will not be afforded this same containment protection system. If the engineers who did this modeling program were allowed to actually come here in person would they have drawn the same conclusions? There is only one way in and out for vehicles at the Jordan Cove site. Is the McCullough Bridge earthquake

proof? Is evacuation possible for North Bend and Coos Bay? What effect will tides have on an LNG spill into the bay? The control center will be located at the plant site. What if they have to evacuate? The ability to control the plant will be lost. It should be located far enough away so control can be maintained in a full blown emergency. The engineers who did the study did not build a model and actually test their computer model with wind tunnel tests. The problem with all computer models is garbage in and garbage out. If you read the first page of the engineers study, you will see their disclaimer. They never came here. I am sure they wanted to. I am sure they wanted to

Hatchery fish reductions unwise Your Views

BY BRUCE BERTRAND Brace yourself ! Oregon’s Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) plans to reduce the number of hatchery fish in the mid-South Coast region. This is in contrast to a slight increase in hatchery fish in the coastal regions north of us to Seaside. The question: Why? The targeting of our area by ODFW rests on their belief that we have to much interaction on the spawning grounds between hatchery and wild fish. Supposedly, this interaction produces an “at risk” condition for the wild fish. ODFW has relied on the Hood River area and founded that the reproductive capacities of the progeny were reduced. This study is on one end of the spectrum of numerous studies. Other studies have shown little if any negative effects. In fact, the 12-year Johnson Creek study in Idaho found no basic negative effect on the wild fish. In response to the concerns about the viability of wild fish, and the federal government’s mandate to protect the wild fish, ODFW developed the Coastal Multi-species Conservation and Management Plan (CMP). Stakeholder meetings over the last two years have been held in order to study, discuss, and revise the plan. The stakeholders were to arrive at a consensus for the anadromous salmonids that would balance the needs for

conservation, fish opportunities, and the social and economic needs of a region. The last stakeholder meeting for our area was held Oct. 14, at the South Slough Sanctuary. The final draft has not been sent to the stakeholders yet but some of the details are as follows: 1. Elk River: Reduce hatchery chinook by 50,000. 2. Coquille River Estuary: The Hall Creek salmon will be discontinued. It has not been decided if the total number of hatchery salmon will remain the same. 3. South fork of the Coquille: Increase Winter steelhead, 20,000. 4. East fork of the Coquille: No hatchery steelhead. 5. South fork of the Coos River: Winter steelhead will still be acclimated and released. This is a reversal of the original ODFW proposal. 6. West fork of the Millicoma: the Millicoma Hatchery will still produce approximately 100,000 chinook but the release site will be moved to a lower site on the river. 7. Tenmile Creek: Increase winter steelhead, 4,000. 8. Coos Bay Estuary: Possible

reduction of 93,000 hatchery chinook. This will only happen if a Spring chinook program is started and hatchery space is needed. If no Spring chinook program is started, there will not be a reduction of Fall chinook. Also, ODFW wants to limit the number of non-fin-clipped Fall chinook that we can keep in the Coos Bay Estuary in 2014. The proposal is to keep one nonfin-clipped chinook per day, and 10 for the season. This does not apply to fin-clipped salmon. South Coast anglers will oppose the plan to adopt the 1/10 tag limit for non-finclipped chinook. Most, but not all, of the chinook are finclipped. We will be catching hatchery non-fin-clipped chinook for another five years. This issue could be revisited in five years because, starting in 2013, all of the hatchery fish will be fin-clipped. This information corrects two misconceptions. First of all, no hatcheries will be closed. Secondly, our student involvement in spawning and fin clipping steelhead and chinook will continue. The proposals have not been adopted by the Ocean Wildlife

Commission. Public testimony on these proposals will be received at a local meeting in January or February. A final public hearing will be held in January or February before the commission in Salem. The five members of that commission can accept or reject the CMP, in whole or in part. South Coast anglers are planning to testify before the two public meetings. It is extremely important for the public to attend these meetings. History has shown that little will be accomplished by a particular interest group if they do not have many people attending and testifying on a certain issue. The CMP can be opposed on principle and on the particular of the proposals. The South Coast anglers plan to do both. We have been supported by many people in our area. The Coos County Commissioners signed our letter of opposition to the CMP. This letter has had a wide circulation around the state. Letters of support from elementary students to adults have been written and sent to ODFW and our state legislators. The time is approaching for a final effort to influence the Oregon Wildlife Commission. May we rise to the occasion. Bruce Bertrand is president, South Coast Anglers STEP Association.

Obituaries and State Slow to address excessive weight DEAR ABBY: I’m 12 and weigh 204 pounds. I feel really fat and I want to go on a diet, but my mom won’t let me. I’m getting bad grades in gym class and need your help. — SAD GIRL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR SAD GIRL: By recognizing that you have a problem that you can’t deal with on your own, you have already taken an important first step in resolving it. The next is to talk to your gym teacher about this and enlist her aid in convincing your mother to give you the help you need. Childhood obesity is rampant in this country, and all those extra pounds could negatively affect your health — not only now, but in the future. If you have a pediatrician, the doctor may be able to discuss the importance of a healthy diet and exercise program for you with your mom. You will need the help of other adults to make her understand if she can’t see that you need help now. DEAR ABBY: I am 18 and d a t i n g someone of DEAR a different race. We have been together for more than a year. The problem is my father is very racist. Every time I sneak out to JEANNE see my PHILLIPS go boyfriend, my father wants to know who I am with. I tell him it’s “my friends,” but he knows I’m lying. I want to tell him who I’m dating, but I know he’s going to be judgmental and rude if I introduce him to my boyfriend. Any advice on what to do? — NERVOUS IN THE NORTHEAST DEAR NERVOUS: At 18 you are too old to be sneaking around. Your father knows something is up, and he probably suspects the reason you’re not being truthful or open, so stop lying. If he wants to know why you haven’t brought the young man around, tell him it’s because you know how he would react. And IF you decide to make introductions, be sure your boyfriend knows in advance what the reaction will probably be — if he agrees to meet your dad, that is. But I wouldn’t blame him if he didn’t. DEAR ABBY: I ran into an old high school friend a while ago.“Jan” and I are both single moms. We want what’s best for our kids. She has no family living here, and she doesn’t have many friends. Jan has low self-esteem, high anxiety and, I believe, she mismanages her finances. Her house is extremely unkempt. She calls me in tears often, asking for advice and help. I have tried to help her, but it is becoming overwhelming. I asked my boss for two days off over the holidays.Jan called me shortly after and asked me if I can take care of her son on any days I have off over the holidays so he won’t have to go to his day care facility. I feel bad and want to help, but I took the time off to spend much-needed time with my family. I don’t want to have to bring her son to my family festivities. Is this wrong of me? Needless to say, this relationship has added a lot of stress to my life. I tried breaking off the relationship over the summer, and I’m not even sure why it still continues. I feel mean and rude, but I don’t want to be — and can’t be — this girl’s only means of support. — TRAPPED IN BUFFALO DEAR TRAPPED: It is neither mean nor rude to draw the line when someone’s neediness is more than you can cope with. It is OK to say no, and you needn’t feel guilty about it. It is also OK to advise someone that low-cost counseling is available in most communities if the person appears unstable or unable to cope with life. When you do, tell her that her needs are more than you are able to handle. If you do, you may not need to end the friendship — she may do it for you, but you’ll be doing her a favor.


Marvin H. Wright July 26, 1924 – Nov. 23, 2013

Marvin H. Wright, 89, of Reedsport was born July 26, 1924, in Superior, Ariz., to John Byrd Wright and Gladys (Toney) Wright. He left this world for his forever home in heaven Nov. 23, 2013. Marvin moved a lot growing up, living in Arizona, Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas and Oregon. Times were tough and jobs were hard to come by. He had told stories of sometimes catching a wild mule to ride the 5 miles to school. On July 15, 1942, with the world at war, Marvin joined the U.S. Navy. He was a few days short of being 18 so his mother had to give her permission. He served on the USS Philadelphia, the USS Lakehurst and the USS Anderson. He was honorably discharged Jan. 15, 1946. The highlight of his time on t h e Anderson was bringing back the very first boat load of POWs from Marvin Wright Japan to the U n i t e d States. After his discharge he worked for a short time on the railroad as a fireman. A steel strike back East caused him to be laid off so he came to Oregon to visit his older brothers and to look for work. It was then that he met Mildred Williams. They were married June 2, 1946. He spent the next 52 years in the Rogue Valley, living in Medford, Ashland and Central Point. Marvin and Mildred were married for 27 years and had three children — one daughter and two sons. Marvin spent most of his time working in the lumber industry as a millwright. Marvin and Mildred kept busy raising their children, square dancing, bowling and being very involved in their church, helping with the youth and singing in the choir. After his first wife passed in 1974 he married Cindy Hansen and they were married for 24 years. They were big sports fans and in particular the Portland Trailblazers. When Cindy passed in 1998 he decided to move to Reedsport with his youngest son and wife, where his daughter, son-inlaw and family lived. He and

his son bought a duplex where he resided until his passing. Marvin loved to bowl. He and his son, Robert, were on local teams and travelled to many tournaments. He also really enjoyed visiting the Eagles and singing karaoke. He was often seen with his camera at his great-grandchildren’s sporting events. He liked to visit local restaurants for a cup of coffee and a chat with friends. He was a member first of Hauser Community Church and later of the Reedsport Church of God. In the last few years before macular degeneration took his eyesight he read his Bible and numerous books to learn all he could about Jesus, the Lord of his life. Marvin made friends easily and became known to many simply as “Grandad.” He was a hardworking, kind man, with a wry sense of humor and a gentle spirit. He could build or fix just about anything with little to none of the “right” materials. His family meant the world to him and they loved him dearly. He left that legacy of love for all who knew him to pass on. He is survived by his sister, Betty Gilbert of Globe, Ariz.; daughter and son-inlaw, Elaine and Larry Zeller of Reedsport; son and daughter-in-law, Wayne and Susan Wright of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.; son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Tina Wright of Reedsport; grandchildren, Brian and Gloria Zeller, Doug Zeller, Darrin and Sherri Zeller, Jill and Josh Mast, Nikki Wright, Michael and Wendy Wright, and Christopher and Petra Wright; great-grandchildren, Jacob, Jaedyn, Jensen and Jeorgia Mast, Hanna and Marissa Zeller, Creo and Natalie Zeller, Aidan Wright and Claira Wright. The family is planning a celebration of Marvin’s life after the holidays. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the youth bowling program at Reedsport Lanes or to Reedsport Church of God. As hard as it is for his family and friends to have him gone, they all know that he is in a better place where he now can see and hear and walk and breathe and they know they will one day be with him again!

PORTLAND (AP) — Twenty-three years to the day after it was checked out, the book “Life before Man: The Fascinating Story of the Evolution of Living Things on our Earth” was returned to the Cedar Mill Community Library. The Oregonian newspaper reports the book was borrowed Dec. 3, 1990, and arrived in Portland Tuesday. The County of Los Angeles Public Library shipped the book along with a note saying someone had sent it to library headquarters in Downey. A staff member at the Cedar Mill library posted the news to Facebook, along with a picture of the book and the note. At 15 cents per day, the late fee for a book overdue by 23 years would be $1,260, but the library says it’s not trying to collect.

State overstepped by extending policies PORTLAND (AP) — A lawyer for the Oregon Legislature says the state insurance commissioner overstepped her authority when she allowed insurance companies to extend policies that had been canceled because they don’t meet standards under the federal health care law. The legislative counsel’s office issued the opinion Tuesday in response to a question from state Rep. Dennis Richardson of Central Point, a Republican running for governor. The lawyer said health plans can be in effect for only 12 months and the insurance commissioner can’t extend that time. A spokeswoman for the Oregon Insurance Division says the agency determined plans that don’t meet the standards can be renewed for a full year if that’s done before the standards are effective, Jan. 1. The opinion isn’t binding. The agency says it isn’t changing its policy.

In Oregon, 17 of the state’s 36 counties are expected to benefit from the expansion. Lane County has the most locations, followed by Josephine, Klamath, Douglas, Jackson and Malheur counties.

World A man who led by example “A giant among men has passed away. This is as much India’s loss as South Africa’s. He was a true Gandhian. His life and work will remain a source of eternal inspiration for generations to come.” Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh

“God was so good to us in South Africa by giving us Nelson Mandela to be our president at a crucial moment in our history ... He inspired us to walk the path of forgiveness and reconciliation, and so South Africa did not go up in flames.”

Nelson Mandela mourned as inspiration in many struggles BY SARAH DILORENZO The Associated Press

Nelson Mandela led black South Africans in their struggle to throw off the yoke of white rule and then helped the entire nation heal the wounds of racial division. But his message of perseverance, respect and forgiveness didn’t just heal South Africa. He also inspired people in countries far and wide in their fights against authoritarian rule. The measure of his influence was in the varied and immediate outpouring Friday from people around the globe in response to his death. In South Africa, people held his image in the streets, but they did so in the Palestinian territories as well. South Africans lowered their flags to half-staff, but so, too, did Europeans and Americans. Several African countries declared three days of mourning, and traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange stood quiet for a minute before the market opened. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that a Brooklyn high school will be renamed The Nelson

Nelson Mandela dances at a celebration concert in Pretoria, South Africa, in May 1994 following his inauguration as the country's first black president. South Africa's president said Thursday that Mandela has died. He was 95. Mandela School for Social Justice. As leaders and citizens, athletes and artists remembered Mandela, many

struggled to find words big enough to describe the man who changed the face of South Africa and inspired a continent and a world: a

colossus, a father figure, a giant baobab tree providing shade for an entire nation. Many noted that Mandela’s legacy would not go with him. It would live on, for example, in the freedom of the Eastern bloc countries and the example he set for other African ones. “He no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages,” said President Barack Obama. As a summit on peace and security in Africa opened in Paris, many leaders vowed to live up to the model he set, but his legacy is also an uncomfortable one for other leaders on a continent where many cling to power and amass riches while their populations suffer. In Gambia, for instance, intellectuals and public servants quietly wondered if the death of the South African icon would serve as a wakeup call to President Yahya Jammeh, who has ruled his West African nation with an iron fist, accused of imprisoning, torturing and killing his opponents, including journalists. Jammeh has yet to comment on Mandela’s death.

An uncomfortable legacy

“He transformed hate into love, putting his country and people back together.” Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara on French TV

“Africa should continue to produce more Mandelas who think more about the people than personal power; for whom the people’s welfare is more important than the selfish pursuit of personal power and glory.”

An inspiration for struggling people “Mandela is not only the father of democracy in South Africa, but is also a symbol of democracy ... And like any symbol, he is not dead. He is present in all of us and guides us by his lifestyle, his courage and faith in the true struggle for equality.” Haitian President Michel Martelly

“When he could leave prison after 27 years of suffering, that coincided with the fall of communism in our part of the world, thus Mandela became a moral compass, a source of inspiration not only in South Africa but in our region, too.” Hungarian President Janos Ader

Speaking The Truth A friend of mine gave me a book he had written entitled “Leadership and the Power of Trust.” Mike Armour, the author, has spent considerable amount of time in corporate headquarters helping CEOs and management to learn how they can better work together. One issue he identified which is essential to success in any organization is trust. If your people do not trust you, they will not follow you, and neither can you work together constructively. Recently, there have been those in the news that have said the president’s claims regarding Obamacare which have proven to be untrue, has so damaged his presidency that few will believe him. In fact some have gone so far as to say his presidency is over. Whether their claims are true or not, is something the public must decide. But this is a reminder to all of us to how important it is to tell the truth. Jesus once said, “Let your yes be yes and your no be no.” In other words say what you mean and mean what you say. Do not make promises you have no intention of keeping and even when it is painful, be honest and tell the truth. You cannot be a good leader, parent, or teacher if you are going to hedge on the truth. Follow Jesus’ directives and say what you know to be true. Come worship with us Sunday.

Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council, a group of 18 senior analysts and policy experts who provide U.S. spy agencies with judgments on important international issues. The case highlights the ongoing fractious relationship between the U.S. government and Huawei, China’s leading developer of telephone and Internet infrastructure, which has been condemned in the U.S. as a potential national security threat. Huawei has aggressively disputed this, and its chief executive, Ren Zhengfei, has said the company has decided to abandon the U.S. market.

Texans heed warnings and stay inside DALLAS (AP) — Freezing rain and stinging winds slammed the Southwest Friday and made a strangely blank landscape out of normally sun-drenched North Texas: mostly empty highways covered in a sometimes impassable frost, closed schools and businesses, and millions of residents hunkered down for icy conditions expected to last through the weekend. Earlier this week, many in Texas were basking in spring-like temperatures that hit the 80s. But by Thursday, Texas was facing the same wintry blast that has slammed much of the U.S., bringing frigid temperatures, ice and snow. The weather forced the cancellation of Sunday’s Dallas Marathon, which was

expected to draw 25,000 runners, some of whom had trained for months. A quarter of a million customers in North Texas were left without power, and many businesses told employees to stay home to avoid the slick roads.

Amish girl OK to refuse chemotherapy TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A court-appointed guardian is dropping her attempt to force an 11-year-old Amish girl with leukemia to resume chemotherapy after she and her parents fled their home to avoid treatment. The move filed in court Friday will likely bring an end to a months-long fight between Sarah Hershberger’s family and a hospital that began when her parents decided to halt the treatments because they were making the girl sick.

Joining Macklemore and Lewis in the best new artist category are fellow album of the year nominee Kendrick Lamar, country singer Kacey Musgraves and British musicians James Blake and Ed Sheeran. Nominees for best album, best pop duo/group performance and best country album also have been announced by host LL Cool J. Nominees Swift, Katy Perry, Lorde and Macklemore performed during the Los Angeles show.

Dylan’s electric guitar sells for nearly $1M NEW YORK (AP) — Like Elvis’ no-hips-allowed appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” or the Beatles’ arrival in America, or Woodstock, it is considered one of the milestone moments in rock history: Bob Dylan going electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. On Friday, the Fender Stratocaster that Dylan plugged in at the festival sold for nearly $1 million — the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000 at Christie’s, including the auction house’s fees, for the sunburst-finish electric guitar.

South Coast BANDON Designer wants look at grounds Continued from Page A1

Hanse, who is designing the golf holes, to start clearing gorse from the site. Hanse has come up with a preliminary routing for 27 holes — three separate ninehole courses — through the use of topography maps, since it’s impossible to walk through the entire site with the thick gorse. Keiser and Hanse think the property has similar contours to the Pacific Dunes course at the resort, but can’t tell yet if the preliminary routing works. “With State Parks’ blessing, we will be able to see the actual features on the ground to judge them, and see if they will be usable,” Keiser said. “He knows the site is good, even though he hasn’t seen the ground. What’s been impossible to see is the hole after hole connected.” Hanse is a highly regarded architect who designed the course that will be used for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. His best-ranked other designs are the Boston Golf Club and the Castle Stuart Golf Links in Scotland and his company, Hanse Golf Course Design, currently has projects in China, Dubai, South Korea, Mexico and Canada. He also has an impressive list of renovations and restorations, including several courses that have hosted major tournaments. “He is both inventive and traditional,” Keiser said. Keiser and Hanse have been talking about the project for five years, and Bandon Links is currently Hanse’s top priority, Keiser said. Hanse faces a big challenge, because in the economic model for Bandon Links, the courses need to stand up to those at the resort. Local golfers will pay a small amount, with out-of-state

He saw the sky fill with black smoke and heard anti-aircraft guns firing. When he turned on the radio, he learned Japan was bombing Oahu and all military personnel were to immediately report to their stations. He saw the USS Arizona enveloped in flames and the USS Oklahoma turned on its side as he headed to his post. Twenty-one ships were sunk or heavily damaged that day while 320 aircraft were damaged or destroyed. Some 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers were killed.

BANDON — Since the original Bandon Dunes course opened, Mike Keiser has insisted all his resort courses will be walking only. The resort owner has the same plan for the proposed Bandon Links. The philosophy fits both with his love of traditional golf and his desire to rebuild the caddie tradition in the United States.“It used to be quite prevalent in the America and then the golf cart took it away,” Keiser said. “That’s where future golfers come from.” Keiser himself was a caddie as a youth in New York. One of his fondest memories is being caddie for Buster Ramsey, the first coach of the Buffalo Bills. Ramsey was a large man and brought a lot of items to the golf course. “His golf bag must have weighed 40 pounds,” Keiser said. Bandon Dunes has a large caddie program, especially in the busy summer months, but it doesn’t necessarily cater to student caddies. “We don’t have a robust junior caddie guests bearing the burden of funding the facility, paying the same rates charged at the resort. “It has to be good enough to attract the Bandon Dunes retail golfers to drive down there and pay a lot,” Keiser said. “It has to be as good or it won’t pay for itself.” The second challenge, if the final facility is 27 holes, will be creating three equally attractive nines, because nine holes will be set aside each day for local golfers, while the other 18 will be for the “retail” golfers. Which nine holes is set aside will rotate each day. The property actually is large enough for 36 holes, Keiser said. But some of it also will be set aside after it is cleared as what Keiser describes as “restored dune area” perhaps including habitat for the endangered snowy plover. Meanwhile, Keiser also is excited about two other aspects of the land swap that has nothing to do with golf. First, it will provide a new public access to the New River. One parcel Bandon Biota will give the state is a 111-acre ocean-front property

program, it’s all adults,” Keiser said. “Everything at Bandon Links would be slanted toward employing youth.” Keiser envisions students learning to caddie at Bandon Links, with the help of adult mentors from the community. That would give them experience so they can become regular caddies at the resort and also give them a chance to get the experience they need to qualify for the Chick Evans Scholarship program. Evans Scholars receive a full ride to a state university. Bandon Dunes has sent 34 students from four area high schools to college through the program, but Keiser said it could grow much bigger. “There is room in the program for many more full scholarships,” Keiser said. Keiser isn’t sure yet specifically how the mentor program would work, but he sees the local adult golfers teaching the young caddies the ropes. “Only when they have been trained by the mentors will they be able to caddie for retail golfers,” Keiser said.

Mariners offer Cano $240 million contract

The Associated Press

Robinson Cano will leave the Yankees for Seattle and a big 10-year contract.

SEATTLE (AP) — Robinson Cano is trading pinstripes for the Pacific Northwest. The free agent second baseman and the Seattle Mariners have reached agreement on a deal, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Friday. ESPN reported earlier Friday that the contract was worth $240 million for 10 years. The person told the AP that the deal was pending a physical that had not yet been scheduled. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement. Cano had spent his entire career with the New York Yankees and was a five-time AllStar. He played in 160 games last season and hit .314 with 27

homers and 107 RBIs. The Yankees had offered $175 million over seven years. New York went 85-77 last season and missed the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years; Seattle went 7191 and hasn’t been in the playoffs since 2001. “He was a great Yankee. He was a great player. I think everybody tried hard to get the deal done. We just never got close enough obviously. We wish him the best. We hope he has a long, healthy career,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said Friday. “We’re going to keep going. We’re still looking at all the same guys that we were looking at a week ago or two ago. We’re going to continue to improve. We’re not done spending.”

The Mariners weren’t saying much of anything. “We are not able to confirm any news regarding Robinson Cano at this time. If and when an agreement is completed and finalized, we will announce,” the team said in a statement. The deal would be tied for the fourth-richest contract in baseball history and a striking blow from a franchise that’s done little to get noticed for the past decade. Only the two deals signed by Alex Rodriguez — first with Texas and then the Yankees — and Joey Votto’s contract with Cincinnati were worth more. Albert Pujols also signed a $240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels. SEE CANO | B2

Huskies choose Petersen SEATTLE (AP) — After all the other schools that called over the years and were sent away, it was Washington that finally hooked Chris Petersen. Petersen will be the Huskies’ football coach, making the decision to leave Boise State after eight seasons as the Broncos head coach. Petersen was offered the job on Thursday night during a meeting with Washington athletic director Scott Woodward in Boise. After a night of sleep, Petersen called Friday morning to accept the position before meeting with his Boise State team. He’s leaving after an unprecedented run of success at Boise State: five conference titles, 92 victories, two Fiesta Bowl wins and credit for putting the Broncos on a national stage for more than just its blue turf field and trick plays. “Coach Petersen’s success and record are extraordinary, but even more impressive is the man himself,” Woodward said in a statement released by the school. “His integrity, work ethic and character make him an outstanding fit and leader of our student-athletes at UW. We are thrilled and proud to call Coach Petersen a Husky.” Petersen replaces Steve Sarkisian, who went 34-29 in five seasons at Washington before leaving earlier this week to take the job at USC. Petersen was 92-12 in his eight seasons at Boise State. But he’s coming off the worst regular season in his tenure with the Broncos after going 8-4, including a 38-6 loss at Washington in the season opener. That Washington was able to pry Petersen away is surprising after so many other schools tried unsuccessfully before. SEE HUSKIES | B5

Blazers crush Jazz, improve to 17-3 PORTLAND (AP) — Wesley Matthews scored 24 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and 15 rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Utah Jazz 130-98 Friday night for their 15th victory in 16 games. Damian Lillard added 21 points and Nicolas Batum had 13 for the Blazers, who won their fourth straight and broke a franchise mark with 17 3-pointers. Portland set a season high for points and shot 73.9 percent from 3-point range (17 for 23), an NBA record for a team with at least 20 attempts, according to basketball-refer- Alec Burks had 16 points to lead the Jazz, who trailed by as many as 42. They have lost 10 of 11 games on the road this season. Gordon Hayward, Jeremy Evans and John Lucas III scored 10 apiece. With the best record in the Western Conference, the Blazers (17-3) have been one of the NBA’s most surprising teams. After winning just 33 games last season, Portland has more than half that total. And after beating Indiana and Oklahoma City in their last two

games, the Blazers have even gotten some national notoriety, including being the subject of a New York Times feature story Thursday. Aldridge has scored 20 points or more in all but four games this season. He was serenaded with chants of “MVP! MVP!” after putting up 38 points and 13 rebounds in Portland’s 111-104 win over the Thunder on Wednesday. While the Blazers are leading the West, Utah (4-17) is in the basement. The Jazz entered with the least potent offense in the conference at 91.2 points per game.

Utah point guard Trey Burke struggled to contain Lillard early and scored seven points in 16 minutes. Burke, a rookie from Michigan, has given the Jazz a lift since moving into the starting lineup over the past seven games, and Utah is 3-4 during that stretch. Lillard scored all his points in the first half and the Blazers led 67-56 at the break. They scored the first 10 points of the third and extended their lead to 89-59 by the middle of the quarter. Portland led 107-69 entering the final period.

Bowling Green crushes NIU hopes

Storm stops schedule

DETROIT (AP) — Matt Johnson was motivated by the hype surrounding Jordan Lynch and wanted to be the best quarterback in the Mid-American Conference title game. Johnson was without a doubt better than Lynch on Friday night. Johnson threw four of his career-high five touchdown passes in the first half to help Bowling Green rout No. 16 Northern Illinois 47-27 to win the MAC championship and knock the Huskies out of a spot in a marquee bowl. “There was a lot of talk about Jordan Lynch being up for the Hesiman,” Johnson said. “It’s welldeserved, but I did take it a little personal.” Johnson was 21 of 27 for a career-high 393 yards, connected with five teammates for scores and didn’t throw an interception. He broke a MAC championship record with the five TD passes. The Northern Illinois (12-1) loss improves the

Sports Sporting KC hosts MLS Cup today

The Associated Press

The lot of the United States is drawn during the draw ceremony for the 2014 soccer World Cup in Costa do Sauipe near Salvador, Brazil, on Friday.

U.S. gets tough World Cup draw BY RONALD BLUM The Associated Press The U.S. drew a daunting task for next year’s World Cup: difficult opponents, tropical venues and a wearying 9,000-mile zigzag journey across Brazil. The Americans wound up with the potentially punishing group they feared and will play Ghana, Portugal and Germany in June as they try to achieve a U.S. first: reaching the knockout phase twice in a row. While Ghana eliminated the Americans in 2006 and 2010, the Black Stars won’t do it again. The U.S. opens its seventh straight World Cup appearance against Ghana on June 16 at Natal. The U.S. meets Portugal and 2008 FIFA Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo six days later in the Amazon rain forest city Manaus. The Americans have just three off days to recover before closing Group G on June 26 in Recife against three-time champion Germany. “I think we have the quality, if we play our best ball, to get out of the group,” U.S. captain Clint Dempsey said after Friday’s draw set the eight four-nation groups. “You can’t think about, ‘Am I the favorite? Am I the underdog? What’s it going to be like playing in the heat? What’s it going to be like with the travel?’ Those are factors that come into it, but at the end of the day both teams have to deal with it.” After having the shortest group-play travel in South Africa, the U.S. will have the longest in Brazil. The Americans will be based in Sao Paulo and face trips of 1,436 miles to Natal, 1,832 miles to Manaus and 1,321 miles to Recife. They will play all three games in the tropics, with the second and third matches in the afternoon. “I think guys who have played in MLS are used to taking 3,000-mile trips a c ro s s t h e c o u n t r y to play,” midfielder Sacha

Kljestan said. The U.S. group has the best average FIFA world ranking. Odds on the Americans winning their first World Cup more than doubled after the draw, from 60-1 to 150-1. “It’s definitely one of the tougher groups, if not the toughest, but at the same time, this is what the World Cup’s all about. You go there to play against the best,” American forward Jozy Altidore said during a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “I think the boys will be excited, will be up for it.” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who replaced Bob Bradley 2 1/2 years ago, played for Germany’s 1990 World Cup championship team and coached his native country to third place at home in the 2006 tournament, commuting to Europe from his California house in Orange County. “It couldn’t get any more difficult or any bigger,” he said at the draw in Costa do Sauipe, Brazil. “It’s a real challenge. And we’ll take it. We’ll take it on, and hopefully we’re going to surprise some people there.” The U.S. and South Korea were the last remaining teams in draw pot three. While the Americans landed in a group with an average

FIFA ranking of 11.25, South Korea wound up in Group H, creating a group with the poorest average at 28.25. “I think the team’s mentality is that we can go and play with anybody,” American defender Matt Besler said. “Now we’re going to have to prove it.” Germany beat the U.S. 20 in its 1998 World Cup opener in Paris — with Klinsmann setting up the first goal and scoring the second — then edged the Americans 1-0 on a controversial goal in the 2002 quarterfinal in South Korea. Die Mannschaft is coached by Klinsmann’s former assistant, Joachim Loew. The Americans beat a second-tier German roster 4-3 in a June exhibition at Washington. “With Jurgen Klinsmann, they have another mentality,” Loew said. “I learned a lot from Jurgen, so this is special.” Ranked 14th in the world, the U.S. has alternated quick exits with advancement since returning to soccer’s showcase in 1990 after a 40-year absence. After the draw four years ago, one British paper used a headline “EASY” for England, Algeria, Slovenia and the Yanks, and The Sun called it the “best English group since the Beatles.” The

Americans wound up atop a group for the first time since the first World Cup in 1930, and England advanced as the second-place nation. This time, secondranked Germany and fifthranked Portugal are the favorites to reach the second round. If the U.S. qualifies for the round of 16, it would face Belgium, Russia, Algeria or South Korea from Group H. As for the rest of the field, Brazil, Cameroon, Croatia, Mexico were put in Group A; Australia, Chile, Netherlands and Spain in Group B; Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan in Group C; Costa Rica, England, Italy and Uruguay in Group D; Ecuador, France, Honduras and Switzerland in Group E; and Argentina, BosniaHerzegovina, Iran and Nigeria in Group F. The U.S. will feel pressure to open with a win against 24th-ranked Ghana. The Black Stars defeated the Americans 2-1 in the 2006 group stage and by the same score in overtime in the round of 16 at the last World Cup in South Africa. “They’re the team that beat us, kind of crushed our dreams of being in the World Cup, so I think we’re due a little bit of luck and we’re due a win against them,” Dempsey said.

Mets reach four-year deal with Granderson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Curtis Granderson is heading across town, where the New York Mets hope his home run swing won’t suffer at Citi Field. The free-agent outfielder agreed to a $60 million, fouryear contract with the Mets, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical and no announcement had been made. Granderson, who turns 33 in March, comes over from the crosstown Yankees and gives the Mets much-needed power in their punchless outfield. He batted .229 with seven homers and 15 RBIs this year, when wrist and hand injuries limited him to 61 games. But he surpassed 40 homers in each of his previous two seasons in pinstripes. The move marks general manager Sandy Alderson’s most expensive free-agent signing — by far — after three years of bargain shopping as

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — One of the participants in the MLS championship game went through a long-term rebuilding project under new ownership, complete with a rebranding of the organization, construction of a $200 million stadium and the revitalization of soccer in the surrounding community. The other participant went through a rebuilding project that took about a month. Sporting Kansas City, which languished as the Wizards for years, will be playing for its second MLS Cup at glitzy Sporting Park on Saturday when it faces Real Salt Lake, a club that jettisoned a bunch of proven veterans in the offseason in a push to go younger. It’s the first time that Kansas City, once a soccer wasteland and now a hotbed for the sport, has hosted the league’s title game. When the Wizards won their only championship in 2000, the finale was played at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. “We’ve made such a turnaround in all aspects of the club,” said Sporting KC manager Peter Vermes, who played on that 2000 team. “So much of it has to do with the ownership group and the vision and commitment, and not just their commitment from the financial aspect but also from their participation within the community. That’s been a major impact on our team.” Tickets for the MLS Cup were snapped up in a matter of minutes, which is hardly surprising. The club sold out every game this season, turning Sporting Park into a must-visit destination. It helps that the club has only experienced success since 2006, when it was purchased by a six-man ownership group headed by Cerner Corp. co-founders Neal Patterson and Cliff Illig. After a few moribund seasons playing in cavernous Arrowhead Stadium, and then a minor league baseball park, the club finally caught fire with its 2011 rebranding. New logo, new colors, brand new name, one that fit the mold of European soccer clubs. Sporting KC finished first in the Eastern Conference in 2011 and 2012, and last year won the U.S. Open Cup for the second time. The one thing it hasn’t

UCLA reaches final CARY, N.C. (AP) — Rosie White pushed UCLA into the NCAA Women’s College Cup final, scoring the decisive penalty kick against Virginia after the teams tied 1-1 on Friday night. The Bruins (21-1-3) won the tiebreaker 4-2 to advance to face Florida State (23-1-3) on Sunday in the championship game. The Seminoles beat Virginia Tech 3-2 in the first semifinal. Katelyn Rowland stopped two of Virginia’s four

attempts in the shootout. The Bruins rallied to force overtime with Ally Courtnall’s goal in the 85th minute. Each team converted its first two penalty kicks before Lauren Kaskie gave the Bruins a 3-2 advantage. Rowland then stopped a shot by Alexis Shaffer. After Virginia’s Jessie Ferrari saved a shot by Kodi Lavrusky, Rowland stopped a shot by Morgan Brian to set the stage for White’s winning kick.


offseason Seattle will have made a massive financial commitment after giving a $175 million, seven-year deal to ace Felix Hernandez last winter. Seattle has plenty of financial room to make significant cash commitments because the only major contracts on the books for 2014 are for Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma, and only Michael Saunders and Justin Smoak are entering arbitration. Helping provide room to increase the payroll is the Mariners’ investment in a new regional sports network that is expected to net Seattle significant revenue in the coming years and it’s not a surprise the club was able to make such a staggering offer. But finalizing a deal with Cano won’t solve all of Seattle’s problems. It’s a start, immediately adding a legitimate slugger to the middle of a lineup that finally showed some pop last season after years of floundering with one of the worst offenses in baseball. The Mariners have plenty of other problems to solve, including adding another established starter to their rotation and finding solutions for an outfield filled with questions.

done is win the MLS Cup. Frustrated the past couple years by Houston, Sporting KC finally broke through against its nemesis this season. A dramatic victory in the second leg of the semifinal at raucous Sporting Park sent the club on to Saturday’s championship game. “This is huge for the city,” said forward Dom Dwyer, who scored the deciding goal against the Dynamo. “I’ve only been here two years, but I’ve seen this grow. There’s more and more hype, and there’s more and more attention. You start to get noticed when you’re out and around the city, and a lot of people are talking about it. “It’s not just Chiefs or Royals,” Dwyer said of the two other professional sports franchises that call Kansas City home. “It’s Sporting, too, so that’s really cool.” Real Salt Lake has been a big deal in Utah for a while. The club, which played its inaugural season in 2005, has qualified for the playoffs six straight years, the best active streak in the league. Four of those seasons, Real Salt Lake advanced to the conference finals, and in 2009 it beat the Los Angeles Galaxy to win the MLS Cup. But a tight salary cap means clubs tend to walk a financial tightrope. Last December, Real Salt Lake parted with eight regulars — among them, Will Johnson was sent to Portland, and Jamison Olave and Fabian Espindola to New York — and replaced them with less expensive alternatives. Even with the roster rebuild, the club kept winning. “Obviously not something we hope to do every day, trading away three All-Stars at the end of the season,” Real Salt Lake general manager Garth Lagerwey said. “It’s a credit to the veteran guys who remain. When they see Will Johnson leave, they could throw up their hands and say, ‘Hey, what are these crazy guys doing?’ And they didn’t. They stuck with us.” Real Salt Lake made the finals of this year’s U.S. Open Cup, losing a nail-biter to D.C. United. It then finished second in the Western Conference to Portland, only to beat the Timbers 5-2 in their two-leg, aggregategoal conference final.

Cano posted a .899 onbase plus slugging percentage last season and finished fifth in American League most valuable player voting. He’s been one of the most durable players in baseball for the past seven seasons, missing only 14 out of 1,120 games since the start of the 2007 season. He’s a career .309 hitter who has averaged 24 homers and 97 RBIs per season. Cano has hit at least 25 homers and had a slugging percentage above .500 in every season since 2009. Cano could be the anchor for a lineup that’s lacked consistency at the plate most of the past decade. Between 2009 and 2012, Seattle’s offense ranked last in baseball in batting average, and was near the bottom in runs scored and homers. The Mariners showed some pop this past season with 188 home runs — second-most in baseball — but 52 of those came from the combo of Kendrys Morales and 41year-old Raul Ibanez, both free agents. It’s the second straight

Hawks’ Korver sets new NBA 3-point record THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ATLANTA — Kyle Korver set the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3pointer, Al Horford scored 22 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-89 Friday night. Korver’s 3 with 5:29 remaining in the first quarter gave him at least one in a record-90th straight game, breaking a tie with Dana Barros (1994-96). Korver was 2 for 3 from beyond the arc and finished with 10 points. Dion Waiters scored a season-high 30 points for the Cavaliers. Andrew Bynum tied his season high with 20 points and grabbed a seasonbest 13 rebounds, and Jarrett Jack added 13 points. The rest of the Cavs, however, combined to shoot 12 for 50 and starters Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Gee went scoreless. Irving shot 0 for 9. Bobcats 105, 76ers 88: Jeffery Taylor matched a career high with 20 points, leading six Charlotte scorers in double figures. Subbing for injured starter Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at small forward, Taylor scored nine of Charlotte’s first 22 points. Gerald Henderson and Kemba Walker added 18 apiece, and Walker also had a season-high 10 assists. Al Jefferson had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Bobcats. Ramon Sessions added 13 points and rookie Cody Zeller chipped in with 10. Philadelphia was led by Tony Wroten’s 21 points. Evan Turner added 16, Hollis Thompson scored 12 and Spencer Hawes had 10 points and 13 rebounds. The Sixers played without starting point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who came in averaging 17.7 points. The rookie sat out because of a sore right knee. Knicks 121, Magic 83: Carmelo Anthony had 20

points and 11 rebounds, and New York snapped a sevengame home losing streak. Andrea Bargnani and J.R. Smith each added 17 points for the Knicks, who followed their 113-83 rout of Brooklyn on Thursday with an even more powerful performance, giving them consecutive victories for the first time this season after a nine-game losing streak. The Knicks hadn’t won at home since beating Milwaukee in their season opener on Oct. 30. The seven-game skid had matched the longest in franchise history, set during the 2007-08 season. Arron Afflalo scored 20 points for the Magic. Celtics 106, Nuggets 98: Kris Humphries came off the bench and had a season-high 18 points and seven rebounds for Boston, which scored the first 14 points of the game and held on for the win. Jordan Crawford had 22 points and eight assists, and Avery Bradley scored 18 as the Celtics won their second straight game to remain in first place in the Atlantic Division despite a 9-12 record. Ty Lawson scored 20 points and J.J. Hickson had 17 for Denver. Bucks 109, Wizards 105, OT: Khris Middleton scored a career-high 29 points and Brandon Knight added 20 as Milwaukee outlasted Washington in overtime. John Henson had 19 points and 17 rebounds for the Bucks (4-15), who had lost 13 of their previous 14. John Wall scored 30 points and Trevor Ariza added 22 points and 12 rebounds for Washington.

Atlanta Hawks’ Kyle Korver sinks a three-point basket in the first half against the Cleveland Cavaliers to break the NBA record for most consecutive games with a three pointer Friday. 95: Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook added 25 and Oklahoma City beat New Orleans for the ninth straight time. Serge Ibaka added 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder, who have won 14 of their last 15 against the Pelicans, with most of those games occurring when the team was called the Hornets. Ryan Anderson scored 18 for the Pelicans. Rockets 105, Warriors 83: James Harden scored 34 points and Dwight Howard had 22 points and 18 rebounds to lead Houston. Terrence Jones added 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Rockets, who had lost two straight. Harden shot 13 for 22 from the field and 7 for 9 on free throws two nights after shooting 3 for 17 — including 0 for 10 on 3pointers — against Phoenix. Howard was 12 for 20 on free throws as the Rockets finished 25 for 39 from the line. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 22 points and five assists, but was just 5 of 14 from the field while making all 11 free-throw attempts. Harrison Barnes

had 14 points and seven rebounds, and Kent Bazemore added 12 and David Lee 11 points as the Warriors saw their two-game win streak end. Suns 106, Raptors 97: Markieff Morris made his first 11 shots en route to a 25point performance and Phoenix handed Toronto its fifth straight loss. Morris, who also grabbed 11 rebounds, finished 11 of 14 from the field, tying his career high in field goals made. His scoring total was three shy of his career best. Amir Johnson scored a season-best 22 for the Raptors. Kyle Lowry added 19 and Rudy Gay 17. Lakers 106, Kings 100: Jodie Meeks made two huge 3-pointers in the final minutes to finish with 19 points, lifting the Los Angeles Lakers past Sacramento in what was expected to their last game before Kobe Bryant returns. Pau Gasol had 19 points and seven rebounds, and Steve Blake added 13 points and 10 assists. The Lakers held the Kings scoreless for nearly 31⁄2 minutes until Ben McLemore’s 3 in the final seconds.

The women’s and men’s basketball teams from Southwestern Oregon Community College each topped the Simpson University junior varsity teams during a tournament at Eureka, Calif., on Friday. The women beat Simpson 62-47 and the men won 10058. Aminata Cole had 19 points and 15 rebounds and Kyla Siri added 18 points and six rebounds. “We shot it pretty well,” SWOCC coach Mike Herbert said. “We played really good defensively for both 20 minutes, so that was really encouraging.” The Lakers got bad news during the week. Point guard Jazmin Bembry learned she has a torn anterior cruciate ligament that ends her season. The Lakers also loast Ashley Desantos to a broken hand — she will miss 4-6 weeks. “We’re kind of shortstaffed at point guard,” Herbert said. “A couple of freshmen — Kaylee Torres

and Yvonne Daniels — took over today and shared the responsibilities and did a pretty good job.” The Lakers play Merritt Junior College of Oakland today and host College of the Redwoods on Sunday. SWOCC’s men, meanwhile, rolled up 58 points in the first half on the way to their win Friday. “All 12 guys scored, so that was a good thing,” said SWOCC coach Trevor Hoppe. “We got to play a lot of guys. We got to play fast.” DJ Anderson led all scorers with 21 points for the Lakers and also had six assists. Anthony Heintzman had 13 points. Dexter Williams added 12 points and five assists. D’vante Howard scored 12 points. “I thought we did a good job of pushing the ball and sharing the ball and got a lot of good shots,” Hoppe said. “The games will get tougher from here.” The Lakers face the JV team from William Jessup University today and College of the Redwoods on Sunday.

Kobe Bryant will make debut Sunday SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Kobe Bryant will make his long-awaited return from a torn left Achilles tendon when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night. In a dramatic video posted on his Facebook page before the Lakers played at Sacramento on Friday night, Bryant set his much-anticipated comeback date. The video, which was also uploaded to the team’s Facebook page, was titled: “Seasons of Legend. Lakers announce Kobe’s return.” The video shows Bryant’s No. 24 jersey flapping in the wind.There is rain,sleet,snow and lightning for nearly 2 minutes. At one point, his jersey tears. Sunshine breaks through the clouds, and the video fades

to black. Finally, words flash across the screen that read, “The Legend Continues ... December 8.” “That’s something special right there,” Lakers teammate Nick Young quipped when a reporter showed him the video on his smartphone in the locker room. How effective Bryant will be against top-tier competition is the last lingering question in his return. Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said Bryant will likely be eased back into the lineup,though he declined to discuss how many minutes he will play in his first game. Asked what his expectations are for Bryant this season, D’Antoni said, “That he’ll be a dominant player.” The 15-time All-Star hasn’t played since he was injured April 12.

Sports Jaguars continue recent hot streak

Losing streak costs Kubiak coaching job HOUSTON (AP) — Gary Kubiak pulled the Texans out of the NFL basement and remains the only coach to take them to the playoffs. That wasn’t enough to save his job, not with the Texans mired in an 11-game skid that has dropped them back to the bottom of the league. Houston fired Kubiak on Friday, one day after the Texans lost 27-20 at Jacksonville and continued their stunning fall for a team that expected to make a Super Bowl run. Houston (211) was flagged 14 times for a franchise-record 177 yards. The 52-year-old Kubiak was hired in 2006 and led the team to AFC South titles in 2011-2012, the highlights of his eight-year tenure as coach of his hometown NFL team. The Texans said they couldn’t wait any longer to start turning things around, not with the losses and undisciplined play piling up. “What’s taken place with this organization is unacceptable,” general manager Rick Smith said. “We’ve got three weeks of an evaluation process left and we’ve got to right the ship.” Kubiak thanked the team for giving him his first head coaching job in the NFL. “Though we came up short this season, the work, effort and sacrifice they gave me and this organization over the last eight seasons is not to be taken for granted,” he said in a statement provided by the Texans. “We had a great run here and we will never forget

our back-to-back AFC South championships. Coming back home was a dream come true for all of us. This will always be our home.” Kubiak’s overall record is 61-64, with a 2-2 mark in the playoffs. Owner Bob McNair said the decision to let him go was a hard one. “It was difficult for me because I think so much of Gary,” McNair said. “We’ve been evaluating it every game and asking the question, ‘What’s in the best interest of the organization?’ We’re at the point now where we need to go ahead and make some changes because losing like this is unacceptable.” He added: “We’re here to have a winning culture and this year has not contributed to that.” The Texans said defensive coordinator Wade Phillips would serve as interim coach for the rest of what has been a miserable season. McNair said NFL and head coaching experience were important factors in filling the job, and that the 66-year-old Phillips will be considered. Kubiak suffered a ministroke Nov. 3 in a frightening scene, collapsing at halftime during a game against the Colts and being rushed to a Houston hospital. He suffered a transient ischemic attack, which occurs when blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted, typically by a blood clot or narrowed blood vessels. Experts say they are often a warning sign for a future stroke, particularly within three months of a TIA.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak paces the sidelines during Thursday’s loss to Jacksonville. The Texans fired Kubiak on Friday. Kubiak returned to coach, but the Texans have been unable to rebound from injuries to top players including quarterback Matt Schaub, running back Arian Foster and linebacker Brian Cushing, who was lost for the second straight season. McNair pointed to messy play and the handling of second-year quarterback Case Keenum as reasons for the move before the end of the season. “I think the last straw was losing,” McNair said. “We’ve got a lot better talent than Jacksonville and to lose to them twice, to their credit they played harder, played smarter and to have them beat us on that is not acceptable. If a team’s going to beat us because they’re better than we are, or have better ability that’s fine, but we

expect to go out and play hard and play smart, and we didn’t play smart.” Kubiak, a former NFL quarterback who calls the team’s plays, has long been known as a top offensive coach, mentoring quarterbacks in Denver under Mike Shanahan and then Schaub and Keenum in Houston. He was hired in 2006, along with Smith, after the Texans finished a franchiseworst 2-14. Smith spent 10 years with Kubiak while the coach was offensive coordinator of the Broncos. Smith was Denver’s defensive assistant for four seasons before moving into the front office for his last six years with the Broncos. The pair helped transform the Texans, which began play in 2002, from league laughingstock to contender.

NFL dishes out fines to three linebackers NEW YORK (AP) — Three linebackers — Detroit’s DeAndre Levy, Atlanta’s Sean Weatherspoon and Green Bay’s Clay Matthews — each have been fined $15,750 by

the NFL for on-field incidents. Levy was fined for a helmet-first hit on Packers tight end Ryan Taylor on Thanksgiving Day. He was

penalized for unnecessary roughness, and the league fined him Friday. From the same game, Matthews was punished for a helmet hit.

Weatherspooon was docked for leading with his helmet and driving into the chest of Bills quarterback EJ Manuel during the Falcons’ win Sunday.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars played 299 games without having a non-quarterback throw a touchdown pass. Then they did it twice — in four days. Receiver Ace Sanders heaved a 21-yard TD pass to running back Jordan Todman in the third quarter, helping the Jaguars beat the Houston Texans 24-20 on Thursday night. “We’re going to find ways to be bold,” coach Gus Bradley said. The trick play came just days after Maurice JonesDrew’s 8-yard TD pass to college teammate Marcedes Lewis, which turned out to be a huge play in Jacksonville’s 32-28 victory at Cleveland. Clearly, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is finding different ways to get it done. Not only did the Jaguars score an opening-drive touchdown for the fourth time in five games — most of them scripted plays by Fisch — they also were aggressive at every turn. Following Case Keenum’s interception with less than a minute to play in the first half, Fisch dialed up a deep pass from Chad Henne to Cecil Shorts III. And late in the fourth quarter, the Jaguars went deep again and drew a pass-interference penalty that was instrumental in helping close out the victory. But Sanders’ toss was the main highlight. Henne threw behind the line of scrimmage to Sanders, who took a few steps in the other direction and threw across the field to Todman. It resulted in a touchdown and a 24-10 lead. “We are just starting to get more comfortable and take more shots,” JonesDrew said. “Coach says to always be bold with your statement, and throwing a double pass is very bold. This is what we want to continue to do and just keep defenses on their heels. Sometimes when a defense gets too aggressive they can control what you do on offense. So if you throw a little wrinkle in there every now and then, you keep them on their heels and you’ll be able to make plays.” The Jaguars (4-9) won their third straight — their fourth victory in five games since a bye — and continued to show signs of progress under Bradley. They have the longest winning streak in the AFC. Not bad for a team that started 0-8. “Four out of five, yeah, you’re feeling good,” Henne said. Jacksonville also won at home for the first time since

Nov. 25, 2012, against Tennessee. “Our guys just really believe,” Bradley said. “The biggest challenge is to keep doing what we’re doing. We’re a young team that’s learning how to do this.” Aside from Jacksonville’s winning ways, here are five things to know about Thursday night’s game: QB QUANDARY: Houston has another decision to make at quarterback. Now former coach Gary Kubiak benched starter Case Keenum, replacing him with Schaub late in the third quarter. Schaub came off the bench and carved up Jacksonville’s secondary, throwing for 198 yards and a touchdown. But he also misfired in the red zone late and threw an interception that essentially sealed the loss, which extended Houston’s franchise-record losing streak to 11 games. “I have a lot of confidence in him ... and always have,” Kubiak said. “He went in there and showed he has bought into what is going on.” MJD’S NIGHT: Maurice Jones-Drew topped the century mark for the first time since Sept. 23, 2012. He ran 14 times for a season-high 103 yards. He also caught two passes 20 yards. His 48-yard run in the third quarter set up the trick-play score. He left the game in the closing minutes with a right hamstring injury, but said after the game that he will be fine. “I’ll be all right,” he said. “It just tightened up at the end.” PENALTIES PLUS: The Texans added a new wrinkle to their season-long woes. Plagued by turnovers and red-zone struggles all year, Houston was flagged 14 times for a franchise-record 177 yards at Jacksonville. “They were huge penalties,” Kubiak said. “That’s on me. It’s ridiculous. It’s inexcusable. It can’t happen.” It did. And all those flags surely helped the Texans blow another winnable game. JOHNSON SHINES: Andre Johnson caught just two passes for 36 yards in the teams’ first meeting 11 days ago. He made up for it this time around. Johnson had 13 receptions (21 targets) for 154 yards — his latest gem against the Jags. EVERYONE EATS: After a fourth win in five weeks, Bradley rewarded his players with three days off. He also reminded them about his “eat crumbs” motto, which is designed to keep players humble and hungry. Guard Uche Nwaneri, though, had a suggestion for anyone who doubted the Jaguars: “Everybody who was talking noise can just eat some crow real quick,” Nwaneri said.

Kaepernick seeks win against Seattle SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick has accomplished a lot so far as the San Francisco 49ers’ starting quarterback. But he still hasn’t beaten the Seattle Seahawks. He can change that Sunday against the team that has handed Kaepernick the two most lopsided losses of his starting career. Russell Wilson has outplayed Kaepernick both times in the budding competition between two of the NFL’s most dynamic young quarterbacks who lead the way in the rivalry between the NFC West’s top two teams. But Kaepernick has something more pressing on his mind this week than any individual comparisons or matchups with Wilson. “I don’t worry about things like that,” he said. “I’m worried about the next game that’s on our schedule.” That’s Sunday when Seattle comes to town for a game the 49ers (8-4) have to win to prevent the Seahawks (11-1) from ending San Francisco’s two-year run as NFC West champions. Seattle can clinch its first division title since 2010 with a victory. The 49ers got good news

Friday when Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Staley (sprained knee) practiced for the second consecutive day and said he “fully expects to play” against Seattle. Staley said Friday it would take more than a sprained knee to keep him out against the Seahawks. “It’s just intense,” Staley said. “We don’t like them. They don’t like us. I don’t have a magic answer for why it’s so intense, but it’s a physical game every time we play. There’s some bad blood there, and it’s gotten worse for a variety of things.” The similarities between Kaepernick and Wilson have become a sideshow to the rivalry between two of the NFL’s top teams. Both players have strong throwing arms and present a dual threat with their ability to run and escape from the pocket. Wilson ranks third among quarterbacks with 456 yards rushing and Kaepernick is fifth with 376 yards. Both rank among the league’s top 10 in average yards per pass play. “They’re two great young quarterbacks, both very talented,” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. “They stand in there and deliver.”

Sports Winston will play in ACC title game

The Associated Press

Stanford players celebrate a win over Notre Dame last week. The Cardinal seek their second straight Pac-12 title today.

Stanford, Sun Devils meet again TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Not long after Arizona State’s late rally fell short in an early-season loss at Stanford, receiver Jaelen Strong said he hoped the Sun Devils would get another chance at the Cardinal in the Pac-12 Championship. He and the Sun Devils get their wish tonight. In a rematch of a September game filled with huge momentum swings, No. 7 Stanford will face No. 11 Arizona State in the Pac-12 Championship with a spot in the Rose Bowl on the line. “It’s a chance to redeem ourselves,” Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton said. Stanford won the initial game 42-28 by racing out to a 29-0 halftime lead and holding on as the hard-charging Sun Devils scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. The teams took divergent paths to the conference title game from there. Arizona State (10-2, 8-1) lost to Notre Dame two weeks later, but has been on a roll the past two months, winning seven straight games, their longest streak since opening the 2007 season with eight straight wins. The Sun Devils have pulled out some big wins along the way, including a victory at UCLA to clinch the Pac-12 South and a home victory over rival Arizona that gave them home-field advantage for Saturday’s game. Stanford (10-2, 7-2) had a disappointing road loss to unranked Utah to lose control of the Pac-12 North, regained with a victory over Oregon, then lost it again with a loss to Southern California. The Cardinal clinched the division for good when they beat rival

California and the Ducks lost to Arizona on the same weekend. The roller coaster over, Stanford has a chance to get back to the Rose Bowl, where it won for the first time in 41 years last season. “We have to treat it as a new team, a new guy,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “We’re a little different than we were earlier in the season. We’ve been through a lot more, positive and negative, so this is just a new game and we’re excited to be in it.” Here are five things to look for when the Cardinal meet the Sun Devils in the Pac-12 Championship game: HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE: The Pac-12 spent the days leading up to the game trying to make Sun Devil Stadium look like a neutral site, changing out the signs around the stadium and painting the field with the conference logo. No matter what the conference does, there will be little doubt where the teams are playing Saturday night. Arizona State fans have sometimes been blase about supporting the Sun Devils, but came out in force for last weekend’s rivalry game against Arizona and another big crowd is expected. Arizona State was undefeated at home (7-0) this season for the first time since 2004. PACE IS THE WORD: Arizona State likes to play fast, often snapping the ball as soon as the officials play it on the turf. Stanford is more of a grinding team, relying on its power running game for ball control. The Cardinal were able to win the tempo game early in the first meeting while building the big lead, but the Sun Devils were able to get game more to their liking while they were

racking up points in the fourth quarter. Whichever team gets the pace it wants will likely be headed to the Rose Bowl. NO GRICE: Arizona State is expected to be without leading rusher and scorer Marion Grice for the second straight game with a leg injury suffered in the victory over UCLA two weeks ago. The Sun Devils managed just fine without him last week against Arizona, running for 204 yards and four touchdowns. D.J. Foster carried the biggest load with Grice on crutches, running for 124 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 23 carries. BIG-GAME CARDINAL: Before this season, Arizona State often had trouble with the big games, falling short when the spotlight was on. That’s been no problem for Stanford. The Cardinal have won their past nine games against Top-25 teams, including the Pac-12 title game and Rose Bowl last season. Stanford is one of three FBS teams — with Alabama and Oregon — to win at least 10 games each of the past four seasons. The Sun Devils have been much better in the big games this season, but the spotlight is nothing new to the Cardinal. FORCING TURNOVERS: Arizona State has had an opportunistic defense this season, converting 23 of its Pac-12high 30 turnovers into points, including 17 touchdowns — five on interception returns. The Sun Devils are ninth nationally with a turnover margin of plus-1.1 per game and have outscored opponents 136-52 in points off turnovers. Stanford has 17 turnovers on the season — eight fumbles and nine interceptions.

Buckeyes aim to complete perfect season INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Big Ten championship game already looks like a classic contest. No. 2 Ohio State comes to Indianapolis with its trendy, up-tempo offense and a powerful old-style ground game that has been virtually unstoppable. No. 10 Michigan State counters with its typically stout defense, which doesn’t allow many opposing offenses to get in sync. Yes, it’s time to settle in for tonight. “It’s miserable,” Buckeyes offensive coordinator Tom Herman said jokingly this week. “But this is why you coach. These are the games your competitive nature can come out a little bit and say, I’m going to have my offense, my checkers, my pieces are

PETERSEN From Page B1 He’s been linked to jobs all over the country but primarily West Coast jobs at USC, UCLA and Stanford. Every time he said “No thanks,” until now. “It’s time for him to take it to the next level,” said Seattle Seahawks safety Jeron Johnson, who played for Petersen at Boise State. Petersen took over for Dan Hawkins in 2006 and turned Boise State into the darling of the BCS. Whether it was the audacious trick plays that led to Boise State’s BCS upset of Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, or the staggering run of victories with Kellen Moore at quarterback, Petersen was the one directing the Broncos’ rise. The Broncos won five conference championships under Petersen and won 12 games in every season between 2008 and 2011. The Broncos got as high as No. 2

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell is not offended the No. 20 Blue Devils are a 29point underdog to Jameis Winston and top-ranked Florida State in tonight’s ACC championship game. “Florida State has been blowing everybody out,” he said. The Seminoles (12-0, 8-0) have beaten opponents on average 54-11 this season behind Winston, who set ACC freshman records by throwing for 3,490 yards and 35 touchdowns. They have defeated all but one of their opponents by at least 27 points. Now all that stands in the way of the Seminoles reaching the BCS national championship game is an inexperienced Duke (10-2, 6-2) team appearing in its first ACC title game. “I’ve had the good fortune through the years to play some No. 1 teams in this profession, some of them looked like No. 1 teams, some of them didn’t,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “Florida State certainly is.” On Thursday, prosecutors said they would not bring sexual assault charges against Winston, the leading Heisman Trophy candidate. A woman had alleged Winston had sexually assaulted her at an off-campus apartment last December. He will play tonight.

Despite the commotion surrounding the team the last several weeks, Fisher said Winston has never wavered on the field. “When it’s time to play football, when it’s time to go to school, he compartmentalizes and handles his responsibilities. ... It’s a true trademark to him because he did not let his individual situation affect his team, and to me that’s what a man does,” Fisher said. Winston expressed relief in a statement released Thursday: “It’s been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am.” Winston was not made available Friday for interviews. The Blue Devils (10-2, 62) are in many respects the ultimate underdog. They emerged from the weaker side of the ACC conference. They’re 0-12 all-time facing No. 1-ranked teams and 0-18 against the Seminoles. And they’re facing a Florida State team that annihilated three then-ranked opponents by a combined score of 155-28.

Malzahn gets raise on eve of SEC title game AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn didn’t bother waiting until after the Southeastern Conference championship game to give football coach Gus Malzahn a new six-year contract worth $3.85 million annually. Athletic director Jay Jacobs announced the firstyear coach’s new deal Friday night, the eve of the thirdranked Tigers’ game against No. 5 Missouri in Atlanta. Malzahn has led Auburn to an 11-1 season after taking over a team that won three games and lost all eight SEC contests in 2012. “As I’ve said before, we want coach Malzahn to be at Auburn for a long time,” Jacobs said. “The new contract includes a raise and extension and is our statement that Auburn is committed to coach Malzahn for the long haul. While this season has been remarkable, I’m equally excited about the future of our program under his leadership. The future of Auburn football is very bright.” The present is pretty bright, too. Auburn hired Malzahn last December and gave him a

five-year contract worth $2.3 million annually. The new deal represents a $1.5 million pay hike and includes a $250,000 raise each year. Malzahn will make $5.1 million in the final year of the contract. Auburn is in line to play in the Sugar Bowl and possibly for a national championship with a win over Missouri. Malzahn’s Tigers upset No. 1 Alabama last weekend. University President Dr. Jay Gogue said he and Jimmy Rane, president pro tem of Auburn’s board of trustees, supported Jacobs’ recommendation to give Malzahn the big raise and six-year deal. “A lot of programs would love to have coach Malzahn, so this is a good move that allows him to continue taking Auburn football where our fans want it,” Gogue said. Malzahn has a chance to win a league title in each of his first two seasons as head coach. The former Auburn offensive coordinator led Arkansas State to a Sun Belt Conference championship last season before returning to replace his ex-boss, Gene Chizik


The Falcons (10-3) won the MAC title for the first time since 1992 — months after Johnson was born — and just three years after a 210 record put coach Dave Clawson’s job in jeopardy. The turnaround and impressive win against the Lynch-led Huskies will likely lead to bigger schools trying to lure Clawson away, a topic he refused to address when asked if he would coach Bowling Green again to close out his fifth season. “There’s no comment on that,” he said. Bowling Green’s Travis Greene had 133 yards rushing to give him 1,555 this year, surpassing the school’s single-season record set by Fred Durig in 1951, and his a 16yard TD made it 47-20. Alex Bayer had seven receptions for 124 yards and a TD that gave the Falcons a 3113 lead at halftime. Ronnie Moore caught four passes for 145 yards and a TD — all in the first quarter. “We came into this game truly believing we were the better team and that we were going to win,” Clawson said. Lynch was held to just 35 yards rushing in the first half and when forced to pass, he was often off the mark as he completed just half of his attempts by halftime.

going to be more prepared and play harder and longer and with better technique and effort than yours.” The stakes couldn’t be higher: To the winner goes an all-expenses paid bowl trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. And if the Buckeyes (12-0) extend their school record winning streak, the nation’s longest, to 25, the reward may be even greater — what is likely to be their fourth appearance in the BCS title game, their first with twotime national champion coach Urban Meyer. But few teams pose a bigger obstacle than the Spartans (11-1). A year ago, they fell just short of upsetting the Buckeyes, falling 1716 in the conference opener. This year, the Spartans have been even stingier. They

lead the nation in total yards allowed (237.7 per game) and fewest yards rushing (64.8), and Michigan State also has the No. 1 passing efficiency defense (91.8). A win over the Buckeyes would give the Spartans their longest winning streak (nine straight) since 1966 and their first Rose Bowl bid since 1988, though coach Mark Dantonio has argued this week his team should also be considered for the BCS championship game. The question, of course, is whether Michigan State can hold up against Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde? “When you think about Ohio State, you think — first thing that comes to my mind is physical,” Spartans linebacker Max Bullough said. “No matter who coaches, no matter what offense they’re

in the AP Top 25 in 2010 and might have found themselves playing in another BCS game if not for an overtime loss at Nevada in the next-to-last game of the regular season. But the Broncos seemed to plateau this season. The year started with the blowout loss at Washington, the worst defeat of Petersen’s career.Boise State lost three more times on the road at Fresno State, at BYU and at San Diego State, and a loss in a bowl game would leave the Broncos with five defeats for the first time since 1998, when they were in their third season at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. “I know Bronco Nation joins me in thanking Chris Petersen for all he did to advance Boise State’s football program over the past thirteen years,” Boise State President Bob Kustra said. “He is not only a great coach but a great person and an asset to the community. We were lucky to have him at Boise State and Washington is lucky to get him.”

If Oklahoma State loses, Oregon’s chances improve greatly. Northern Illinois won’t get a shot at a second straight BCS bid. “It’s a tough one to swallow,” Lynch said. Lynch ran for 126 yards and two TDs to break his own single-season record for yards rushing by a quarterback in major college football, but didn’t take advantage of an opportunity to impress Heisman Trophy voters. He was 21 of 40 for 219 yards with a TD and two interceptions, including one in the fourth quarter that set up Johnson’s fifth TD that put Bowling Green up 40-20. After Lynch threw an incomplete pass to turn the ball over on downs on the ensuing drive, he was taunted by Falcons fans: “No more Heisman! No more Heisman!” The senior said it was “unacceptable,” to throw two The Associated Press interceptions. Boise State coach Chris Petersen and cornerback Jamar Taylor cele“I expect a lot of myself brate their win over Washington in the 2012 MAACO Bowl. Petersen is and I didn’t live up to my leaving Boise State to coach the Huskies. expectations,” Lynch said.

running, no matter what they’re doing, they’re going to be a physical football team. They have big guys on the offensive line. They take pride in being able to be a physical football team.” All of which raises the bar — for both teams — in what may be one of the weekend’s best games. “I think they are like fine wine, they get better with age,” Herman said of Michigan State. “They know the strengths of their defense, they know the weaknesses of their defense. I think they understand what you’re trying to do offensively and where the pressure points on their defense are in terms of the plays that you’re running and the ways that you’re trying to attack From Page B1 them.”

National/Community Sports Gymnastics Plus athletes reach state THE WORLD

Photos by The Associated Press

Germany’s Maria Hoefl-Riesch celebrates her victory at the World Cup downhill ski race in Lake Louise, Alberta, on Friday.

Gymnastics Plus qualified 14 athletes for the state meet in Grants Pass with strong finishes in the sectional meet at Coos Bay. State qualifiers included Trujillo Guadalope, Melody Wood, Anna Olander, Katie Tellei, Calysta Burns and Heather Eckley from Level 3; Ella Thomas, Claire Patin, K ianna Thomas, Jamie Foster, Aliyah White and Roxy Day from Level 4; and Caitlyn Anderson and Kenna Jones from Level 5. The state meet is this weekend, and was still scheduled as of Friday night. Gymnasts had to qualify to get into the sectional meet, and then qualify there to advance to the state meet.

Several other athletes from Gymnastics Plus advanced to the sectional competition, but didn’t reach the regional. Ella Thomas finished first in her age group, the top finish from any Gymnastics Plus athlete. She also won the vault and bars in her division. Kianna Thomas and Patin both were third in their divisions. Among the girls who didn’t advance to state, Anna Olander had the best finish, placing fifth in her division in Level 3. Others who didn’t qualify for the state meet included Amyaika Funk, Sierra Bell, Charlie DeaMakenna Moody and Sierra Grint in Level 3. Results for all the gymnasts are included in today’s Community Scoreboard.

Vonn makes return to slopes Players can sign up

LAKE LOUISE, Alberta (AP) — To understand the true significance of Lindsey Vonn’s return to racing Friday, ignore the World Cup downhill results sheet, with a slow-for-her time and 40thplace finish, and instead examine a calendar. It had been 10 months since Vonn last competed, ripping two ligaments in her right knee and breaking a bone in that leg in a highspeed crash at the world championships. It had been less than three weeks since she partially re-tore her surgically repaired ACL in a fall during practice. And there remain two months for the American to get ready for the Sochi Olympics. Still, Vonn began Friday hoping for a victory, regardless of the likelihood. As it turned out, she felt some jitters and skied conservatively by her standards, winding up more than three seconds behind winner Maria HoeflRiesch of Germany on an afternoon when the temperature dropped below minus-15 degrees. “I try to look on the bright side of everything, and I was really optimistic that I could come down and just — first race, right out of the blocks — win, and it was wishful thinking,” said Vonn, a fourtime overall World Cup champion and 2010 Olympic downhill gold medalist.

Lindsey Vonn competes during the women’s downhill race Friday. “I was just too nervous. I was really tight, and I skied that way,” she said. “I wasn’t in a really deep tuck. I wasn’t pushing the line where I could have. And I just kind of skied it, and that’s not my style. That’s not how I attack a race.” Vonn missed the previous 14 World Cup events, including the first five this season. She had been aiming to return last week at Beaver Creek, Colo., not far from her hometown of Vail, but scrapped those plans after a training crash Nov. 19. Vonn entered Friday with a seven-race winning streak at Lake Louise, and 14 of her 59 career World Cup victories came at the resort in the Canadian Rockies, a big reason she set the bar high. “It does take a little time to build the confidence back up,” said Vonn, who said she plans to take part in Saturday’s

Mac’s Run is Dec. 8 THE WORLD Runners and walkers will honor the memory of their oldest fellow runner at Mac’s Run on Saturday, Dec. 8. The event honors E.P. “Mac” McKean-Smith, who died in 1998 at the age of 89 after running into his mid80s. The two races begin at 10 a.m. at Sunset Bay State Park near Charleston.

downhill and Sunday’s superG. “It’s been a long time.” She said her right knee, which she protects with a brace when skiing, was “fine.” Hoefl-Riesch, though, said Vonn told her the “knee was kind of bothering her.” “It’s, of course, not an easy situation for her. She wants to keep the season going and take a chance for Olympics,” said double Vancouver Games gold medalist Hoefl-Riesch, whose first victory of the season came in 1 minute, 56.03 seconds, well ahead of runner-up Marianne Kaufmann-Abderhalden of Switzerland (1:56.73) and third-place Elena Fanchini of Italy (1:57.23). “So she, of course, needs to do races. I hope that she can get more confident for her knee.” Vonn finished in 1:59.22,

and spent plenty of time walking around afterward signing autographs — hats, helmets, gloves, even a red sneaker — and posing for pictures with fans. “Obviously, she’s still favoring her leg,” U.S. teammate Laurenne Ross said. “She’s just trying to be careful and I think she’s just trying to get out here to get herself back into it.” A year after Vonn and Stacey Cook gave the U.S. Ski Team a 1-2 finish in both Lake Louise downhills, and Vonn and Julia Mancuso gave the Americans another 1-2 showing in the super-G, the country’s top showing was Julia Ford’s 21st place. 26th, was Mancuso Jacqueline Wiles was 32nd, Cook was 39th, Leanne Smith was 49th, and Ross was 56th out of 60 starters. “I’ll be brutally honest with you: I’m very disappointed with our result today,” U.S. women’s speed coach Chip White said. “It’s probably one of our worst performances in recent history as a group.” When it came to Vonn, he recognized the result did not matter. “People think she can win this thing in her sleep,” White said. “To have her win this today would have been a miracle, to tell you the truth. We’re just really pleased to see her back and see her get back in the game.”

How can start-ups avoid costly mistakes? It’s the Sunday before Thanksgiving and the family just called to DOWN TO tell us when they would be arriving for the holiday. I need to take the turkey out of the freezer ARLENE now so it SOTO will be totally defrosted by Thanksgiving morning. This triggers a sense of panic as I flash back many years. I panic because it takes me back to my first Thanksgiving when Mom or Grandma was not in charge of the meal. I had never been involved in the preparation of the holiday meal before. Now I shouldered the responsibility. And in this instance, I failed miserably. I completely forgot about defrosting the turkey until the night before Thanksgiving. Going into your own business for the first time is much like cooking that first Thanksgiving dinner. You think you know what to do, but since you’ve never done this before, you really don’t understand the planning it takes. It all looked so easy when someone else was responsible. Starting a business, you will make mistakes. Your mistakes will cost you personally, both time and money. It’s okay to make mistakes! It’s part of your learning curve. Just don’t make the same mistake twice! Think of this as the “tuition” you pay for eventual business success. Many of your mistakes will center on a lack of organization and ineffective planning. If “Sally” was a no-show, no-call for her shift on Monday, it’s pretty safe to assume that she’s not going to be there on Tuesday. If you dawdle and don’t get someone lined up to fill in you’ll probably be covering that shift yourself. Are you going to plan your advertising in advance, or will you miss the cut off for advertising in the yellow pages? The cost is being out of the phone book for a year, perhaps missing the opportunity to reach new customers. Are you going to follow up on those past due accounts receivable? The price you pay may be a write-off of a bad debt. Don’t think you’ll make any business mistakes? Get real, you will. If you don’t have a Plan B, create one. It’s time to get organized, plan and learn from your mistakes so they become tools that lead to future success. Arlene M. Soto is the director of the SWOCC Small Business Development Center, She can be reached at 541-7566445,, or at 2455 Maple Leaf, North Bend, OR 97459.

Oregon liquor reform in limbo Community liquor stores wary of proposed sales shift to grocery stores BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

SOUTH COAST — Community liquor stores are wondering how they would survive if customers could check grocery and liquor off their list in one stop. This summer, the Northwest Grocery Association launched a campaign for a ballot measure to allow grocery stores to sell liquor. The move would negatively impact the small, state-regulated stores where shoppers have purchased their liquor for decades, liquor agents say. Agents are contracted by the state to sell liquor from the state’s distribution center in Portland. Agents don’t set the prices or sales on the liquor and their sales commission is capped at 8.8 percent. The proposal gives grocery stores with a footprint of more than 10,000 square feet the ability to sell hard liquor alongside their beer and wine. Joe Gilliam, president of the Northwest Grocery Association, said Oregon’s “archaic” liquor control system needs to change. “We want to bring convenience to our customers and the current system makes it very inconvenient for folks to have to make that extra stop,” he said. “It stifles competition in the marketplace. Anything that we would do would give them the opportunity to become a regular private business with some sort of buy-out provision.” That would mean liquor stores would either be bought out and shut down or continue as a private business, he said. “We would like to see something where they get the chance to stay in business and compete,” he said. But many aren’t sure if these small liquor stores would be able to compete against large chains like Fred Meyer and Safeway.

Learn a lesson from Washington “It would be extremely negative, there’s no doubt,” said Scott Farlow, Coos Bay Mixer’s agent. “It would dramatically hurt our business.” He hopes the OLCC learns from the aftermath of

privatizing liquor in Washington last year. “The big stores (in Washington) were not charging the 17 percent tax that the small ma and pa stores have to,” he said. “It drives out the small businesses. Then they’re out of business and the big stores can do whatever they want. We don’t know whether it will happen or not. I hope in our small community that we’re safe. Most likely it will happen in the metro areas. “Something’s going to happen. Something will change, we just don’t know what it will be yet or how it will affect individual owners.” Last month, OLCC commissioners decided to ask the legislature to make a decision one way or the other: either invest more money in the current liquor system or change it.

8.8 percent commission not enough The 8.8 percent commission liquor store agents receive from sales isn’t enough anymore, Farlow said. “It absolutely has to increase,” he said. “They’re always asking us to improve our stores. In most businesses, when sales increase you make more money. In this business, we’re limited to 8.8 percent.” Farlow’s store manager, Mike Huffman, agreed. “I think every agent in the state would say yes, they could use more compensation,” Huffman said. “They want to upgrade and to do that, you have to have income.” Liquor stores don’t own their inventory. Agents are responsible for the store, lease, labor and expenses but the liquor itself is controlled by the state.

Pinched between rising costs, ceiling on prices Gilliam sympathizes with liquor store agents. “If there’s one common point in the room, it’s that the current retail outlet model they have, the agent model, will eventually implode on itself,” he said. “The stress it puts on agents is pretty immense in that the agent does not control the price at which they get the inventory, and they don’t control the price at which they can sell the inventory.”

Scott Farlow, owner of the Coos Bay liquor store, sells around 500 brands of liquor in his store. He said if legislation is passed allowing grocery stores to sell liquor, it will hurt his small business.

Area funding from liquor sales ■ Coos County: $571,303 ■ Curry County: $202,617 ■ Douglas County: $979,260 The Oregon Liquor Control Commission’s gross sales for distilled spirits for the 2011-2013 biennium totaled $974.8 million. That resulted in $119.2 million that was distributed to cities, $35.1 million to counties and $225.6 million to the state’s general fund in the same timeframe. Distributions are based on population. According to OLCC, 96 percent of its net profits come from hard liquor sales. There are currently eight liquor stores registered in Coos County: Powers, Myrtle Point, Lakeside, Coquille, Bandon, North Bend, Coos Bay and Charleston.

2011-2013 liquor sales profits

Agents cannot raise prices to reflect changes in rent or expenses. “So they get pinched between rising costs and a ceiling on prices,” he said. “And everyone recognizes that they can’t continue to do that because these guys won’t be able to stay in business. We’ve seen that for years coming but the legislature has refused for over a decade to give them any kind of increase.” Right now, the Northwest Grocery Association continues to do its homework researching decades of liquor laws so it can pursue an initiative in the upcoming legislative session. “One thing we discovered about Oregonians is they believe the main function of the OLCC should be licensing and enforcement and that it shouldn’t be in the

promotion and marketing of liquor,” he said. “It’s a conflict of interest. They’re trying to increase sales on one side but enforce and be the police on the other. They need to be one or the other.”

They can’t do what we can Large grocery stores can’t do what small liquor stores can, Huffman said. They wouldn’t be able to carry specialty items and the variety of hard liquor that these small liquor stores offer, he said. He pointed out a regular bottle of Kahlua and bottles of several different Kahlua flavors right next to it. A grocery store wouldn’t be able to have that kind of variety, he said, since “99 percent of people are going to buy the original Kahlua.”

CPA opens new office in Coos Bay

“Our variety is so much better,” he said. “Grocery stores are only going to carry what they can sell.” And liquor stores have been a boon for Oregon distilleries, who can always find shelf space for their signature product. Coos Bay’s liquor store alone sells around 500 brands of hard liquor, Huffman said, with several flavors of each brand. Another problem with putting liquor in grocery stores is it’s so much easier to steal. In fiscal year 2013, only $7,680 worth of liquor was stolen across the entire state, according to the OLCC. “In a grocery store, it’s so much easier to stick a bottle of alcohol down your pants,” Huffman said. Coos Bay Fred Meyer food assistant Nate Bice agreed. “I don’t think it’s a good idea, just because my personal belief is it’s a theft issue,” he said. Fred Meyer and Safeway managers declined to comment on the issue. At Coos Bay Liquor, there are eight high-definition cameras keeping an eye on the entire store.

Audiologist launches holiday program COOS BAY — A local audiologist is launching a new “Hear for

the Holidays” program to make it easier for individuals to have their hearing checked and get hearing aids. Dr. Todd Landsberg said the calls to his office begin to pick up right after Thanksgiving after families have gotten together. Some are faced with the reality that they missed out on many conversations. Sometimes they realize that what they consider a “normal” volume for the TV was way too loud for the rest of the family. Those interested can call the

South Coast Hearing Center for a free hearing test until Jan. 31. If hearing aids are necessary he can fit them with high-quality aids with a three-year warranty for less than $1,500 for a set. Sometimes the cost is covered by insurance.

Ask a Designer: Change it up for the holidays BY MELISSA RAYWORTH The Associated Press

The holiday season is synonymous with tradition. But that doesn’t mean you have to fill your home with the same holiday decorations in the same color scheme every year. “Until four years ago, I was Scrooge-y when it came to holiday decorating — a result of seeing the same old thing over and over again,” says Brian Patrick Flynn, a Los Angeles-based interior designer and executive producer of’s “Holiday House.” But after finding ways to “reinvent the look and feel of Christmas for my own home,” Flynn says he “rediscovered how much fun seasonal styling can be when you make it your own.” Here he and two other design experts — Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs and Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design — offer suggestions on shaking up holiday decorating.

Super stockings Call’s family takes a creative approach to Christmas stockings: On the night before Christmas Eve, they make new stockings by sewing together large pieces of felt (inexpensive at any craft store) using a simple blanket stitch. “We let our imaginations fly when it comes to decorating the outsides, and top off each one with our name and the year,” he says. “Making these stockings gives us all something to do the night before Christmas (Eve), and we share memories and laughter along the way.”

Terrific trees A Christmas tree doesn’t have to stay parked in one place. Flynn recommends putting a small tree on wheels (maybe in a vintage metal wagon or an old metal washtub with casters on the bottom) so you can change its location when you’re entertaining to create space or to bring extra holiday style to a different room. Another option is ditching red and green tree decorations for an understated color palette. “This year I created a tone-on-tone tree using all shades of light gray,” Flynn says. “To do this right, it’s all about having a balance of texture, finish, shape, scale and proportion.” Try a white tree if you’ll be using light colors and neutrals, or a green tree with decorations in earth tones.

To shake up your tree’s decorations, Call suggests going with a theme. “Last year for a client, I indulged in masses of vintage mercury-glass ornaments of all sizes and shapes. Silver was literally dripping off the tree. It was spectacular,” he says. “This year we are changing it up a bit and creating a completely edible tree, including childhood favorites such as homemade popcorn balls, small sacks of chocolates tied with a ribbon and hung from the branches, and pungent gingerbread.”

No tree at all If you have minimal space, Call says you can skip the tree altogether without losing any holiday cheer. Instead, cluster together a bunch of white poinsettias. They set a holiday tone in a fresh way, he says, and in a large group look “almost like snowfall.” Or create your own “tree” out of branches: “In my kitchen, I love to fill a large galvanized pot with armfuls of branches full of red berries,” Call says. “As the season progresses, I simply clip incoming cards to the arrangement so that everyone can enjoy. It’s become a tradition over the years, and everyone loves to come and check out my ‘family tree.”’

Focus on unexpected places Christmas doesn’t just happen in your living room. Flynn suggests adding a tiny tree to any space, even a breakfast nook. To spice up a staircase, he created a garland out of “old men’s flannel and denim shirts cut and stitched” into pennant squares with tiny pockets. Strung together, they create a colorful advent calendar (mark all 25 days with sew-on varsity letters). Each one can hold a tiny gift and “add life and activity to an otherwise humdrum space.” And for a new twist on outdoor decorating, Burnham suggests investing in a professional decorating service to string your outdoor trees with white lights. “I don’t mean drape lights over branches. I mean really wrap the trunk and every branch,” she says. She had this done at her Los Angeles home several years ago and is still impressed The Associated Press Photos with the look. “It is the most spectacular thing when I light the trees up at night, and For a creative twist on a traditional Christmas tree, the designer Flynn for uses a muted color it’s something I would have never been able palette of white, cream, gray and tan for a fresh look that’s understated and elegant. to do myself,” she says. “The lights haven’t and brightly colored ornaments on the manneeded changing or redoing, and it’s been a Make it all about the mantel “to make it all pop.” tel couple of years now.” “One of the most searched-for terms on Call agrees there’s no need to hold back is ‘mantel decorating,”’ Flynn says. For homes with a flat-panel TV mount- with color: “The holidays are a time for indulgence, and that always means color to ed above the mantel, he has a high-tech idea: me,” he says. “Commit to a color scheme and Burn images to DVD that coordinate with the go for broke!” accessories you lay out on your mantel, then Tradition definitely has its place.

Real Estate-Finance

Right at Home: luxe leisure BY KIM COOK The Associated Press “To the art of working well, a civilized race would add the art of playing well,” philosopher George Santayana said. For those with means, pursuing leisure can involve the finest components. Beautiful materials and craftwork can take these items into the realm of art. “The market for these high-end sporting items is extremely fractured. No one is authentically showcasing these exceptional artisans in a way that celebrates their superior craftsmanship,” says Pippa McArdle, co-founder of Bespoke Global, which sells custom-made home furnishings and accessories. So what does play look like, at the luxury end of the spectrum?

Water sports As journalist Tom Brokaw said, “If fishing is a religion, fly fishing is high Aficionados church.” appreciate the craftsmanship of Willow Reels, started in Clarkston, Mich., by Chris Reister. He makes classic fly fishing reels out of aircraft-grade aluminum, brass, and ebony, redwood, or maple burl. You can buy the reels lasercut with scroll, tribal or flower motifs, or have your own design inlaid. ( ) In Blue Ridge, Ga., Bill Oyster’s eponymous company makes supple bamboo fly rods that he sells worldwide.Former President Jimmy Carter has one. The reel seats are handengraved, the cane is flamed to add spring and resilience, the finish guides are bronze and the hardware is blued, an electrochemical process that protects against rust. ( ) And then there are boats. N ick Schade, a designer and boat builder in Groton, Conn., draws inspiration from early Inuit and Aleut designs, crafting kayaks and canoes from a variety of cedars, fiberglass and carbon-Kevlar cloth. His Night Heron kayak is in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. ( ) Plying the waters in a human-powered vessel

less steel, with a top that slides on when play is over. A soundproofed ball return and tournament-grade cloth are part of the package, but you can add an LED light set as an option. ( ) The makers of the chess set used by 1972 champions Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer also make a range of other board games, including Scrabble, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Risk.

requires a fine paddle; Sanborn Canoe, a Minnesota-based outfitter, offers some elegant ones, with names like M innetonka and Gitchi Gummi. Made of woods like cedar, aspen and black walnut, they’re painted with striking graphics that might leave you wondering whether to dip them in the water or mount them on the wall.

Land sports Are teams chasing balls more your thing? Weekend gridironers might like one of the footballs or baseballs made by Leather Head Sports, started by Cooperstown, N.Y., homeboy Paul Cunningham. Rawhide-laced, in colors ranging from classic tawny caramel to royal blue and red, the balls are made of leather from the Horween company in Chicago. Leather Head also makes the Lemon Ball Baseball, inspired by the original 19th century lemon-peelstyle ball. Hit a home run with one of Jamey Rouch’s bats made of pieced cherry and walnut that comes from near his studio in Three Rivers, Mich. (Leather Head and Rouch: Kara Ginther’s handtooled bike seats and saddle bags elevate cycling to another level. Leaves, fronds, Scottish knitting patterns and even zodiac patterns have inspired her designs. ( ) The look and feel of California 1950s surf culture can be found in purple heart, mahogany and walnut beach racquet paddles, outfitted with leather grips and loops. ( ) Remote-control vehicles at the luxury end are more like mini versions of real cars, with quality elements like titanium shocks, steel gears and leather seats. Retailers offer off-road vehicles, slick sports cars and speedboats, including several from high-end maker Traxxas which zoom at speeds up to 100 mph. ( )

Inspecting the home inspection BY ERIK J. MARTIN A detail of a carnival backgammon set from Llewellyn's sets feature unusual visuals like pheasant feathers, antlers and vintage carnival imagery. She creates custom sets that can be highly personalized. Bespoke game pieces made of semi precious stones like lapis lazuli, malachite and jasper are encased in polished brass, and may be engraved.

Air sports Once the sport of kings, falconry has developed a modern following in groups

like The North American Falconers Association. Ken Hooke of Winnipeg, Manitoba, may be falconpre-eminent ry’s craftsman, making hoods for the sporting birds. The hoods are placed over the birds’ heads to calm them. Hooke makes them out of calf, goat, and exotic skins such as ostrich, iguana and red monitor lizard. (; )

Table sports Alexandra Llewellyn was introduced to backgammon by her Egyptian stepgrandfather. It became a lifelong passion, and she now designs eye-catching sets with photographic images of pheasant feathers, antlers and vintage female portraits. “Growing up in the country, I’ve collected pheasant feathers for years. The peacock feather design was inspired by the game’s Persian roots, and the carnival and nude women evoke gambling and nightclubs in the 1920s,” Llewellyn says. She recently made a custom backgammon set that documented a couple’s life together. “Their first date, where they lived and their nationalities inspired

the artwork,” she says. “The leather compartments were embossed with hand-written quotes from their love letters, and the playing pieces were engraved with the places they’ve traveled over the years.” She also offers custom game pieces made of malachite, rock crystal, lapis lazuli, turquoise or jasper, encased in brass. ( ) Hattrick backgammon sets, popular with professional players, are offered with white, blue, red or green leather playing fields, marbleized acrylic playing pieces and gold-plated case at www.zonlocks . Chess fans know how dismaying it can be when an ongoing game gets jostled. Hammacher Schlemmer offers a wall-mounted board complete with acrylic shelves and rosewood and boxwood pieces that will keep the action safe for days or weeks. ( ) Foosball is for more than college pubs. High-end Italian game-table maker Teckell offers crystal, walnut and even 24-karat gold in their collection. ( ) Billiard Toulet has designed the Lambert pool table, crafted of sleek stain-

because the technology already exists in the form of radiant-heat floors. Just snake some HOUSE plastic tubing under that concrete and toss the shovels and snowblowers in the trash. W e wouldn’t STEVE even have to BATIE warm up the walks all that much. Just 33 degrees would do it. And even that only every couple of weeks or so. (In warmer climes I suppose sidewalks could be cooled instead, but that’s not really my concern. Florida, Arizona,


California and Hawaii can fend for themselves.) It’s also time we stopped breeding dogs for sharper teeth, silkier hair and bulging shoulder muscles and started breeding them for their ability to groom themselves —like cats. That way I wouldn’t find tufts of fur on the hallway carpet every single day all through the spring. Apparently, that’s the best place in the house for a thorough scratching session. And don’t talk to me about brushing. He hates that even more than baths — if that’s possible. As it is, I have to capture him in the garage and haul him bodily to the basement laundry sink. Come to think of it, cats don’t need to be bathed either, do they?

I’ve mentioned this a time or three before, but exterior paint and roof shingles ought to change color with the temperature.

After the price haggling and before closing, home inspections are an essential part of the homebuying process. Here are the top 5 misconceptions Considering that a home purchase is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, it’s smart to enlist the help of a professional home inspector prior to buying a property. However, many buyers aren’t aware of what to expect from the inspection and what to do with the results. To separate fact from fiction, here are 5 major misconceptions about home inspections: 1 All home inspectors and i ns p e c t i o n s a r e t h e s a m e : The truth is that only 35 states currently regulate the home inspection industry and require licenses, and even those that do may not require much training. “Even in states that have licensing requirements, there is a huge variation in the type of inspection you will get from each company. And just by having a license, you are not assured of getting a thorough inspection,” says Kenneth Peter, certified home inspector and franchise owner with Pillar to Post Home Inspectors in Boulder, Colo. “Comparing home inspectors and companies can be difficult, but you must perform your own due diligence for your protection.” 2 Inspectors will find e ver yth i ng w ro ng wi t h a property: Actually, a home inspection find major issues with major home components including the roof, structure, heating/cooling systems, attic, electrical and plumbing. Inspectors aren’t going to scrutinize small details, like broken blinds, minor carpet stains or other cosmetic items. “Inspectors give a quick overview of glaring faults

that can easily be found. For example, if they can’t gain access to an attic at the time of inspection, they can’t find items there,” says Kurt Wannebo, CEO and broker, San Diego Real Estate and Investments, San Diego. 3 Inspectors will issue a “pass” or “fail” grade on the home: “Not true,” says Bruce McClure, home inspector and author of “Buy or Run” (Inspectors International Press, 2013). “Inspectors report on 1/8the home’s 3/8 condition, and it’s up to the buyer to decide if they want to proceed with the sale. The inspector also shouldn’t comment on the price or recommend that the client buy or run.” 4 Inspectors will provide repair s or repair quotes: Wrong again, the experts say. “Inspectors do not do repairs and they’re not there to assess the value or cost of anything not working,” Wannebo says. Once the inspection is done, you’ll have an opportunity to renegotiate whether you want the seller to fix the problem or you want credits to repair or replace items, but the inspector does not take part in this. 5 The more you pay, the better the inspection will be: In reality, many companies and inspectors charge more than others but don’t deliver a more thorough inspection for your dollars. “The reputation and experience level of a home inspector always determines the outcome of an inspection, not the price tag,” says Ralph LaTorraca, broker/owner of LaTorraca Realtors in Bloomfield, N.J. Peter says these and other misconceptions persist “because people buy homes so infrequently that they don’t know or understand the process. Hiring an inspector is much more difficult than many other purchases, so you need to do your homework.”

Some things that ought to exist Just a little while ago I barely escaped bruising a part of my anatomy that I’d just as soon not be bruised. (Actually, that’s true of all of my anatomy, but I’m especially fond of the part that allows me to sit here typing this.) And it occurred to me that it would be very cool if water were colored. I’m thinking red or dark blue. Even green. Anything but clear. That way we’d be able to more easily spot a freshly mopped floor than searching for shiny spots. Mop water would dry clear, of course, like some caulking and water-based finishes. Otherwise there would be little point in laying pretty kitchen floor tiles. That’s just one of the things that ought to be. But there are others: Lumber ought to be straight. Again. I say that because there are 20-year-old scrap 2-by4s tucked among the rafters of my garage that still are dead straight. Not a curve or twist to be seen. How many would you have to rummage through at the home center to find those today? Dandelions ought to be considered flowers, or at least herbs. And spurge should be applauded as an amazingly drought-resistant groundcover. Really, gang, isn’t it time we abandoned this battle? Creeping charlie has pretty purple blooms. Something else to keep in mind. Just sayin’. Sidewalks ought to be heated. At least the sidewalks here in snow country. It wouldn’t take much,

In investing, no risk means no reward

Saturday, December 7,2013 • The World • C5


FRANK AND ERNEST Dear Mary: This may be the ultimate in stupid questions but it’s been plaguing me for a while. Is there any value in converting my existing 401(k) into cash without removing the funds from my 401(k)? Do they even allow that? I hate losing all that lovely EVERYDAY money as CHEAPSKATE t h i n g s dip and swirl. I would continue to contribute at my existing rate, 12 perc e n t , Mary including the comHunt p a n y match of 3 percent for the 401(k). Symantha Dear Symantha: Employer-sponsored retirement plans, such as 401(k), typically have a cash option within the list of investments available to plan members. Look for a money market fund. If you move your account assets into that fund (which is perfectly allowable), the money is going to just sit there, not earning. It will be shielded from the wild swings in the market but will begin to lose value because you will not earn enough on your account to even keep up with inflation (currently thought to be about 3.3 percent). The very nature of investing is that you expose money to reasonable levels of risk with the expectation of achieving a profit or gain. Not all of the choices in your 401(k) plan carry the same level of risk. Just remember that in order to achieve a reward, you must be willing to take a reasonable level of risk. No risk, no reward. The biggest problem with moving your account into a “cash position” is figuring how you will know when to move it back into investment funds that will give you a chance of achieving a gain. A better idea would be to contact your plan’s administrator and make an appointment to meet with an investment counselor to assess all of the options you have in your 401k plan. This person can help you match your tolerance for risk against the options you have in order to find the most comfortable place for the money you are contributing to your retirement account. Dear Mary: In a recent column, you said that full retirement age is determined by the year you were born. Where can I find this information? My husband was born in 1954 and I in 1955. Also, can a person continue to work full or part time (mostly for health insurance benefits), and draw Social Security at the same time? Thanks. — Bonnie Dear Bonnie: Full retirement age for a person born in 1954 is 66. For those born in 1955, the age at which you reach full retirement is 66 and 2 months. If you wait until you reach full retirement age to begin drawing benefits, you can continue to work without restriction or penalty. If you opt for early retirement at age 62, your monthly benefit is reduced if your earnings exceed certain limits for the months before you reach your full retirement age. If you are under full retirement age for the entire year, you can earn $15,120 gross wages or net self-employment income a year and not lose any benefits in 2013. If you go over that amount, the SSA will deduct $1 in benefits for every $2 earned above $15,120. The Social Security Administration’s website,, is quite userfriendly and has the answers to these questions, plus so much more. Mary invites questions at mary@everydaycheapskate.c om, or c/o Everyday Cheapskate, P.O. Box 2099, Cypress, CA 90630. This column will answer questions of general interest, but letters cannot be answered individually.

BRIDGE In yesterday’s deal, declarer had to take three club finesses with Q-9-3 opposite A-J-10-2. This required running the nine, the lower “high” card, first, so that he could repeat the finesse two more times without needing an extra entry. I thought that was standard technique — until I saw this deal. South gets to five clubs. West leads the spade king. How should South approach the play? North might have bid one notrump, but two clubs was preferable. If

South had interest in three no-trump, he could have cue-bid in spades. Also, if South had something like queendoubleton of spades, he ought to have been the no-trump declarer, not North. South has two losers in the black suits. So he must find East with both red-suit kings, unlikely as that might seem. And being in the dummy for the last time, declarer has to take three finesses, two in diamonds and one in hearts. How? If South runs the diamond nine, what does he do next? If he leads dummy’s diamond 10, he will be stuck in his hand with the jack. And if he plays the queen, East can cover with the king to put South into his hand. Instead, declarer must start with dummy’s diamond queen. If East covers, South wins, plays a diamond to dummy’s nine, and takes the heart finesse. Or, if East plays low, South unblocks his jack, then continues with the diamond nine. He can take all three finesses and make his contract. Bridge retains its appeal primarily because you can rarely use the words “always” and “never.”

Mike & Molly: A pair of backto-back Christmas-themed encore episodes opens with “First Christmas.” As the title says, it’s Mike and Molly’s (Billy Gardell, Melissa McCarthy) first holiday season together, and he has no idea what to get her for a gift. Reno Wilson, Katy Mixon and Nyambi Nyambi also star. Sunday 8 p.m. on KCBY The Amazing Race: In the season finale, the four remaining teams are in Tokyo, where they must take part in some bizarre stunts, including rolling through a human bowling competition. The three teams that survive that round then head for the finish line in Alaska, where one will claim the $1 million prize. Phil Keoghan hosts “Amazing ‘Crazy’ Race.”

Tuesday 10 p.m. on KCBY The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: A Great Big World, Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and Neon Jungle are scheduled to perform as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson and other beauties appear as “Victoria’s Secret Angels” at the annual event in New York. Highlights include interviews, model profiles and a peek behind the scenes. Wednesday 10 p.m. on KOBI KMCB



The Millers: Carol’s (Margo Martindale) overbearing parents (June Squibb, Jerry Van Dyke) are coming to visit, and she doesn’t want them to know the truth about her failed marriage — or her son’s. She asks Tom and Nate (Beau Bridges, Will Arnett) to pretend everything’s OK and everyone’s happy. Nate gets so into the charade that he starts thinking about reconciling with his ex (Eliza Coupe) for real in the new episode “Carol’s Parents Are Coming to Town.”

Raising Hope: Burt (Garret Dillahunt) faces an unpleasant duty as the interim mayor of Natesville: canceling the Christmas festival. Of course, this brings down the wrath of the townspeople, who blame him for ruining their holiday, in the new episode “The Chance Who Stole Christmas; Bee Story.” Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton and Cloris Leachman star.
