Serving Oregon’s South Coast Since 1878


Flood warnings for the coast this weekend THE WORLD Meteorologists say heavy rainfall this weekend could leave parts of Coos County underwater. According to the National Weather Service, a series of storms is causing a rapid rise in river levels throughout the area. The Coos County Emergency Management Office is predicting minor flooding in the South Fork Coquille River at Myrtle Point, which could threaten some farm buildings and cover roadways. 1 As of Friday afternoon, the river was at a little less than 25 ⁄2 feet, and was expected to reach just under 35 feet by Sunday morning. Moderate flooding is expected on the river’s main stem, with a predicted level of 23 feet by Sunday afternoon. Emergency planners are warning against trying to drive through high water on roadways.

Minding their P’s and Q’s Sunset sixth-graders practice etiquette at OCCI Valentine’s lunch

Silver Surfer


COOS BAY — A bunch of Coos Bay kids are becoming proper gentlemen and young ladies. Busloads of chatty, giggly Sunset Middle School sixth-graders sat up straight, placed napkins in their laps and waited to take a bite until everyone at the table had their food at Oregon Coast Culinary Institute on Thursday morning. The sixth-graders practiced etiquette and table manners at the annual Valentine’s lunch served by OCCI students. The idea came to OCCI chef instructor Tom Roberts while he was swimming with Sunset’s sixth grade teachers in the Mingus Park swimming pool three years ago. The first year, only teacher Rebecca Peters’ class of 30 came. Last year, the entire sixth grade ventured out. See the photo gallery “Now it’s become a tradiand video for this he said. tion,” story online at The teachers organize the or lunch instead of a traditional Valentine’s party. “As sixth-graders, Valentine’s cards get a little iffy; it’s not so appropriate anymore,” Peters said. “This is something else they can look forward to instead of having a party.” In class, the kids have been learning about place settings, what to do if you come across food you don’t like (don’t make a scene) and refraining from asking for seconds. “It’s a really good experience for them,” she said.

Sixth-grader Kiana Holley delicately eats a bowl of wonton soup with bok choy, green onion, barbecue pork and pork wonton with shrimp. “They need to know the expectations of how to act in public.” Both the banquet hall and the kitchen were humming. As the kids waited patiently to be served, OCCI students were rushing around the kitchen, filling dishes with wonton soup, pork fried rice, cashew chicken, sweet and sour pork, and beef and broccoli. This lunch gives Roberts’ students the opportunity to feed a huge group of people as fast as possible. At most, they typically serve 60 to 70 at the Chef’s Table every Friday. Thursday’s lunch doubled that. Roberts’ 22 students managed to serve a threecourse meal in 40 minutes. “It helps them focus on feeding large groups of people really quickly and efficiently,” he said. “It’s become part of our curriculum; we look forward to it every year.” During lulls between courses, OCCI students were scattered throughout the kitchen sipping leftover wonton soup. “I’m totally OK with you eating, but don’t lose your momentum, OK?” Roberts called out.

SALEM — Gov. John Kitzhaber says he’ll sign a bill that would allow Oregon schools to retain Native American mascots under certain conditions after state lawmakers addressed concerns that led him to veto a similar measure a year ago. The measure, approved unanimously in the state Senate on Friday, would loosen the Board of Education’s 2012 ban on depicting Native American mascots in

His spokeswoman, Rachel Wray, said he’ll sign the bill if it clears the House without changes. Schools would be allowed to keep

Gov’t lets banks, legal pot sellers do business BY PETE YOST The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Friday gave banks a road map for conducting transactions with legal marijuana sellers so these new businesses can stash away savings, make payroll and pay taxes like any other enterprise. It’s not clear banks will get on board. Guidance issued by the Justice and Treasury departments is the latest step by the federal government toward enabling a

legalized marijuana industry to operate in states that approve it. The intent is to make banks feel more comfortable working with marijuana businesses that are licensed and regulated. Others have a keen interest, too, in a regulated financial pipeline for an industry that is just emerging from the underground. Marijuana businesses that can’t use banks may have too much cash they can’t safely put away, leaving them vulnerable to criminals. SEE BANKS | A10

Powers releases raw sewage into Coquille River POWERS — Powers’ waste water treatment plant was inundated by a surge of storm water that exceeded its capacity following 3.35 inches of rain during the 72 hours ending 7 a.m. Friday. As a result, raw sewage and storm water was bypassed to the South Fork of the Coquille River from the outfall located at river mile 27.8. The Oregon Emergency Response System and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality were notified of the bypass, which began around 4:30 a.m. Friday and is expected to continue until the rain subsides. For more information, call Paul Strader at Powers City Hall at 541-404-6117. Myrtle Point’s waste water plant also experienced a storm water surge and waste water bypass Wednesday.

CHARLESTON — The Charleston Fishermen’s Memorial Committee is asking for recommendations of names of those lost at sea or who have worked in the fishing industry. The names will be listed on the memorial at the Charleston Marina. Following review and

selection by the committee, names are engraved on one of three plaques. The most significant criteria for adding the name of a commercial fisherman or commercial fishing industry person is that the person must have fished out of Charleston or must have been active and made a sig-

nificant contribution to the Charleston–Coos Bay fishing industry. The application deadline is March 17. Application forms are available at the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay’s Charleston Marina office, 63534 Kingfisher Road, or at

New plaque additions will be dedicated at the annual Blessing of the Fleet memorial service on Memorial Day. The committee also is seeking new members. For application and membership information, contact committee member Margery Whitmer at 541-297-2095 or

Broadband means broad potential Our view The South Coast’s highspeed Internet is a piece of new infrastructure we need to promote.

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

Every community needs infrastructure — like roads, water and sewer, a power source, etc. Infrastructure is what makes a community livable and makes commerce possible. Our little island of the South Coast has a vital component of infrastructure that you may not have thought of before — high-speed broadband Internet. Think about it. What business operates now without some kind of online presence? And when it comes to banking or health care, the Internet is essential. Just as much as a road system, a rail line or a port, high-speed Internet access has become a must-have for business as well as personal use. This is an asset we have here in our virtual island on the South Coast, and we need to begin promoting it. Charter Communications recently completed installing a 720GB fiber optic circuit that loops through Coos

Bay/North Bend, east to Roseburg, south to Grants Pass, then southeast to Crescent City, Calif., before heading back up the coast. The new line is a backup to the existing network, giving our region a robust, redundant system. The project cost $1.6 million, 85 percent of it paid for through the Federal Communications Commission Rural Health Care Pilot Program. Another 15 percent came from the state Department of Education, High Desert Education Service District. Charter invested about $675,000. The driver for the project was health care and education, but we all get to

take advantage of it. (As an aside, last September PC Magazine ranked Charter first in Internet service in the Pacific Northwest, with its average 28MB download speeds.) The Internet is more than just a place to socialize on Facebook. You could ask Steve Nye, manager of Engles Furniture Store in North Bend. The company was recently named one of the top 20 independent furniture stores in the country by Home Furnishings Business magazine. Part of the reason the store ranked high was because of its Internet presence. Nye says the company ramped up its Internet presence about a year ago, beefing up its website with a virtual store tour and expanding its Facebook profile. “I think it's essential,” Nye said. “We need to keep a relationship with our customers. I can't imagine doing business without it now.”

Or you could ask Curry County commissioner David Itzen. He is envisioning the redundant high-speed now running through his county as a new asset to attract business. “I'm hoping we can leverage this,” Itzen said. “Businesses like goods transportation, or data centers. We already have inexpensive electricity. We have a labor force that needs work. High-speed Internet can be another selling point to attract business.” The attraction can even carry over to individuals who come for the lifestyle with telecommutable jobs. We already know we have assets that attract people to our island — beautiful country, cheap utilities, abundant recreation opportunities. Our high-speed Internet access is one more powerful asset that we should be promoting to attract the kind of people and businesses we want here.

& Get some crab

How can you miss this? The 29th annual Charleston Merchants Crab Feed takes place today, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the old Charleston Elementary School, 64065 Seven Devils Road. The Wild Women of Charleston (and a few wild men) will serve up whole ($17) or half ($13) crab meals. Funds go to the Charleston Visitors Center, Charleston Food Bank, Shore Acres Holiday Lights and other organizations. They’ll even provide crab bibs.

Or maybe a glass of wine You could venture north to Reedsport for the 2014 Wine, Beer, Seafood and Music: Confluence, today and Sunday. Wineries showing their wares this year include Noble Estates, Abiqua Wind, Depoe Bay, River’s Edge, Saginaw Vineyard, Henry Estates, Season Cellars and HB. Music and fun if your over 21 — noon–10 p.m. Saturday; noon-6 p.m. Sunday. Skoal!

Better yet, ‘Be mine!’ You could treat your sweetie to an evening of steppin’ at the Bandon Oregon Ballroom Dance Association’s Valentine’s Day Ball at the Odd Fellows Hall. Beginners lessons at 7 p.m., then dance until late. No partner? No problem. Hey, maybe you’ll meet someone.

When the rain comes What the hey? We finish out 2013 with record-setting low rainfall, prompting forest firefighters, farmers and ranchers to wring their hands. Then a snowstorm pounds the Willamette Valley and now it seems the rains are back to normal. Global climate change, or just plain crazy?

Blunt opinion II Last week we recounted how local communities are stiff-arming the idea of medical marijuana dispensaries. This week state lawmakers waded into the fray, discussing whether or not communities could or should ban dispensaries outright. Oregon passed its medical marijuana law 15 years ago. Seems odd that we’re still at odds over how to deal with the ramifications.

Remembering the fallen U.S. military death tolls in Afghanistan as of Friday:


Letters to the Editor Fix campaign finance laws A recent contribution to the Public Forum once again brought up the topic of corporate personhood, and the need to pass an amendment to strip corporations of their personhood. Is this a good idea? The Supreme Court ruled on this topic and the subject was not what corporations could do. The focus was on the rights of individuals who associate in groups to pool their resources to buy influence in the government. Yes, sadly, influence is for sale. So who is buying it? Corporations. Unions. Guilds

of professionals like the AMA and trial lawyers. The NAACP. The ACLU. If you look at the 20 most generous groups that are purchasing a place at the table, corporations barely make the list. Most of the top 20 are unions and left leaning PAC’s. If you absolutely must put a “spin” on the Supreme Court decision, it looks like union personhood to me. And it looks like the author is advocating putting a muzzle on the voices that best express his personal political views. Well, the Supreme Court rightfully ruled that a person does not give up their right to free speech when they express it in a group, whether it be a corporate voice or a union voice.

This is what happens when a person takes a narrow view and ignores everything else, and it is all governed by a law that is already in place, the Law of Unintended Consequence. Should this amendment pass, at what level of association does the muzzle apply? The association of five business owners? A husband and wife? What are the consequences for our descendants? Will the corporations and unions find ways to go around the new law? I do not think this is even close to being the answer to the problem, and I agree it is quite a problem. We need to find a much better way to keep our government from being obligated to

support the groups that pay the most to get them elected. A constitutional amendment to muzzle groups is a really, really bad idea. Ted Hunt North Bend

End of the line for the welfare state? The Congressional Budget Office did not exactly say Obamacare would cost the nation 2.5 million jobs. But what it did say is vindication of what conservatives have preached since Barry Goldwater stood in the pulpit 50 years ago: The more liberal the welfare state, the greater the disincentive to work and the more ruinous the impact upon a nation’s work ethic. The CBO has just given us a statistical measure of that truth. The Obamacare subsidies, it said, will cause some to quit work, others to cut back on the hours they work, and others to hold off going to work, so as not to lose the benefits. The cumulative impact of all these decisions will be equal to the loss of 2.5 million jobs by 2024. The CBO has put a number of what everyone knows to be true: If people don’t have to work to provide the needs of their daily lives, some will drop out and become permanent charges on the public purse, deadbeats. A related and larger question is raised by the CBO: If Obamacare alone will cost

the equivalent of 2.5 million lost jobs to the U.S. economy, what is the impact of our entire welfare state on the vitality and dynamism of PAT the U.S. labor BUCHANAN force? As Robert Columnist Rector of Heritage Foundation wrote in January, if we judge Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society only by the dollars spent to improve the lives of the poor and near-poor,an astronomical $20 trillion, it was a success. Rector describes its dimensions. “The federal government runs more than 80 means-tested programs that provide cash, food, housing, medical care and targeted social services to poor and low-income Americans. “Government spent $916 billion on these programs in 2012 alone, and roughly 100 million Americans received aid from at least one of them, at an average cost of $9,000 per recipient.(That

figure doesn’t include Social Security or Medicare.) “Federal and state welfare spending, adjusted for inflation, is 16 times greater than it was in 1964.” Yet, if we judge the Great Society by its goal, providing the poor with their basic family needs so they can go out into the marketplace and find jobs and join their fellow Americans, it has been, writes Rector, “a catastrophe.” Scores of millions of Americans are today less able to achieve selfsufficiency through work than were their grandparents. And by providing for all the needs that the father used to provide for his family, the Great Society has helped make fathers superfluous. We have created a system where a teenage girl who becomes pregnant can have all her basic needs met by government. This is a primary cause of the rise in illegitimacy in America from 6 percent of all births in 1963 to 41 percent today, and to 53 percent among Hispanics and 73 percent among AfricanAmericans. If the goal of the Great Society was to turn America’s tax con-

sumers into taxpayers, it has been a total failure. This is something new in America, something we did not know with the Irish boat people of the 1840s, the Okies in Dust Bowl days or during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Monday’s New York Times reveals a relevant and startling fact. Only 8 percent of the cab and rental car drivers in New York City are native-born Americans. Three times as many yellow cabdrivers in New York were born in Bangladesh than in the USA. What is happening in America is that the vast cohort of working men and women, immigrants, illegal and legal, who have come in recent decades, 30 to 40 million, have displaced, have dispossessed, the native-born. But we may be coming to the end of the line. Taxpayers are rebelling, budgets are falling dangerously out of balance, and the welfare state is beginning to buckle under the load. Perhaps T. S. Eliot was right: “This is how the world ends/Not with a bang but a whimper.”

Obituaries and State Kitzhaber declares drought in 4 counties

Journals are last link to sister D E A R A B B Y : My sister died suddenly. She hadn’t been ill, and it was a shock. Although she tried hard to have a relationship with me over the years, I had trouble relating to her and we weren’t close. I am sorry to say that I never took the time to get to know her. I’m left now with many questions about the sister I always had, but never really knew. As her next of kin, I’m responsible for packing up her things, and I came across several journals. I would like to read them because I feel they would help me to understand her better, but I also feel it might be DEAR disrespectful to go through something of hers that was so personal. What do you think? Would it be wrong to JEANNE them? PHILLIPS read I wish I had her here to talk to instead of journals to snoop through. — REGRETFUL IN OAKLAND DEAR REGRETFUL : I’m sorry for your loss, and your regrets. Because you would like to know your sibling, I think you should read her journals. While it’s sad that you have to make her acquaintance in this way, it would be better than never having known her at all. DEAR ABBY : I love my wife, but I find it difficult to take her to any function where there will be many people. She doesn’t comprehend most conversations. She acts like she’s listening, but if prompted for a reply, it’s obvious she wasn’t. While she doesn’t seem to care, I find it embarrassing. People tend to shy away from her, leaving her by herself. Because of this, we don’t often get invited back. At Christmas, when I received my invitation to the annual office party, I sent my regrets. If I try to talk to my wife about this issue, she gets defensive and accuses me of picking on her. Advice? — THE NORTH 40 IN VIRGINIA D E A R N O R T H 4 0 : It would be interesting to know if your wife’s problem is an inability to comprehend English well, a hearing problem or a social anxiety disorder. Of course, we’ll never know unless you’re able to have an honest conversation with her about it and explain how it affects you. If there is a solution, your wife will have to want to find it. As to functions having to do with business, if she’s uncomfortable in that environment, then you should attend without her. DEAR ABBY: I’m a secretary who happens to make really good coffee. An employee who works in the building likes my coffee and has made himself comfortable at my desk in the morning before he starts work and afterward, before his second job. I am not comfortable with this. He plants himself at my desk, and I find myself having to work around him. He has become a fixture in my office and I need it to stop. How can I go about this without hurting his feelings? — NOT HIS BARISTA DEAR NOT: From where I sit, it looks like the man may have a crush on you. Because you want less of his company, tell him you need to get to work — or get your work finished — and that his presence at your desk is distracting. Tell him you’re flattered that he likes your coffee and he’s welcome to a cup, but he needs to drink it elsewhere. If you say it pleasantly, his feelings shouldn’t be hurt.

The Associated Press

A large snowball crashed into a Grove Quad dormitory at Reed College in Portland. Officials say the ball was some 40 inches in diameter and weighed from 800 to 900 pounds.

Runaway snowball slams into dorm PORTLAND (AP) — Two math majors at Reed College lost control of a massive snowball that rolled into a dorm, knocking in part of a bedroom wall. There were no injuries, but college spokesman Kevin Myers said Friday it will cost $2,000 to $3,000 to repair the building. The incident happened last Saturday night following a rare trio of snowstorms in Portland. Students started building the giant snowball on a campus quad near the dorm. Urged by a crowd, the math majors tried to make the snowball as big as possible by rolling it down the sidewalk that goes past the dorm.

“And the ball just got away from them,” Myers said. After escaping their control, the boulder-sized snowball rolled about 15 yards before slamming into Unit7. Three students heard the smack and discovered the fractured bedroom wall. The student whose dorm was damaged has not had to move. The students responsible for the runaway snowball reported the incident and won’t be disciplined. Myers said they didn’t intend to cause damage and feel awful about what happened. He declined to release their names and said he didn’t know their class years. Reed Magazine was first to report about the snowball.

GRANTS PASS (AP) — Gov. John Kitzhaber on Friday declared a drought in four counties in the high desert of southeastern Oregon. More are likely to follow. The drought declaration applies to Klamath, Lake, Harney and Malheur counties. Kitzhaber said all applied for the state designation, which allows for greater flexibility in water management. “It’s sobering having this conversation about drought declarations in four counties in February, and we’ve already had a couple wildfires,” he said. “It looks to me like this is the tip of something long.” Kitzhaber said he expected Jackson County to be next. A federal drought disaster declaration is needed to authorize federal aid, Oregon Department of Agriculture spokesman Bruce Pokarney said.

Last month, agricultural producers in Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake counties became eligible for federal low-interest loans because they border drought disaster areas in California designated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The U.S. Drought Monitor showed severe drought across all but the northernmost tier of counties in Oregon. Kitzhaber said he is considering bringing together mayors and watermasters to talk about voluntary water conservation measures, but he does not expect mandatory steps to be needed yet. He noted that snowpack has been as low as 20 percent and precipitation half of normal along the border with California, where a drought was declared last month. Just what federal help will be available is not clear.

Nation Obama: US must rethink NATIONAL water as climate changes D I G E S T

Great Lakes nearly covered with ice

LOS BANOS, Calif. (AP) — Warning that weather-related disasters will only get worse, President Barack Obama said Friday the U.S. must rethink the way it uses water as he announced new federal aid to help droughtstricken California. Obama drew a clear connection between California’s troubles and climate change as he toured part of a farm that will go unsown this year as the state faces its worst drought in more than 100 years. Even if the U.S. takes action now to curb pollution, the planet will keep getting warmer “for a long time to come” thanks to greenhouse gases that have already built up, Obama said. “We’re going to have to stop looking at these disasters as something to wait for. We’re going to have to start looking at these disasters as something to prepare for,” Obama said. After arriving in California

President Barack Obama walks with Governor Jerry Brown, left and Joe and Maria Del Bosque, right of Empresas Del Bosque farm, addressing California’s drought situation Friday in Los Banos, Calif. Farmers in California’s drought-stricken Central Valley said federal financial assistance does not get to the heart of long-term water problems. on Friday afternoon, Obama met with community leaders at a rural water facility before announcing more than $160 million in federal financial aid, including $100 million in the farm bill he signed into law last week for programs that cover the loss of livestock.

Week’s action: Monday, Friday closings:

CHEBOYGAN, Mich. (AP) — From the bridge of the Coast Guard cutter Mackinaw, northern Lake Huron looks like a vast, snow-covered field dotted with ice slabs as big as boulders — a battleground for the icebreaker’s 58-member crew during one of the roughest winters in memory. It’s been so bitterly cold for so long in the Upper Midwest that the Great Lakes are almost completely covered with ice. The last time they came this close was in 1994, when 94 percent of the lakes’ surface was frozen. As of Friday, ice cover extended across 88 percent, according to the federal government’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory in Ann Arbor.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory denied Friday he had any talks with Duke Energy executives or lobbyists about his administration’s scuttled deal to settle environmental violations at two of the $50 billion company’s coal ash dumps for $99,000.

McCrory was asked about the agreement at a public event after his office had not responded to questions from The Associated Press. Federal prosecutors on Monday served the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Duke with grand jury subpoenas demanding records

AGs switching sides on gay marriage NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The day after a federal judge struck down Virginia’s gaymarriage ban, state Attorney General Mark Herring wasn’t vowing to appeal or insisting his state’s law was sound. Despite their duty to defend the laws on the books, state attorneys general are increasingly taking an unusually supportive role in the movement to legalize gay marriage across the U.S. Some, like Herring, are refusing to defend their states’ prohibitions against same-sex matrimony.

Accentuate The Positive Are you old enough to remember a song by Johnny Mercer that said, “you’ve got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and latch on to the affirmative. Don’t mess with Mister In-Between.”? Our nation at the time this song was written had just come out of the great depression and had been engaged in World War II. There was a real need to focus on the positive. There are many in our circle of relationships that find the negative easy to discuss. In our nation we find the country still in massive unemployment, economy is struggling and Washington is severely broken. Thus we are not in short supply of material for negativism. However, all that does is drive our spirits downward. We want to be lifted. Let me suggest you begin to look at the world around you. Even though it goes through a cold depressive Winter, it comes to life in the Spring. When you begin to look at life and recognize that God is the giver of life, there is always something to be thankful for. The sun will come up, flowers will bloom and someone loves you deeply. Therefore, “Accentuate the Positive.” Come worship with us Sunday.

Canceled! Airlines scrap record number of flights BY SCOTT MAYEROWITZ The Associated Press

The Associated Press

This undated photo released by the Maui Police Department shows the driver side view of a vehicle belonging to missing pregnant woman Carly Scott. Scott's mother reported her missing Monday. She told police a family member last saw the 27-year-old redhead Sunday night at her sister’s home in Haiku, in northeast Maui.

Search underway in Maui for missing pregnant woman WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) — A private search party was looking for a missing pregnant Hawaii woman whose SUV was found torched two days earlier in a rural area. Carly Scott’s mother reported her missing Monday. She told police a family member last saw the 27-year-old redhead Sunday night at her sister’s home in Haiku, in northeast Maui. The search continued Friday for Scott, who is five months pregnant. Maui police said someone in the search party found “possible evidence” Thursday. But police aren’t revealing what was found. They’re asking searchers who find possible clues not to touch or move them. The Makawao woman’s burned 1997 Toyota 4Runner was found Wednesday in Haiku’s Peahi area. Before the vehicle was located, police found Scott’s dog in the nearby community of Nahiku, the Maui News reported. Her ex-boyfriend, Steven Capobianco, tells Hawaii News Now she picked him up Sunday night and drove him to Keanae — several dozen miles away on the two-lane, winding Hana Highway — so he could fix his truck. Scott’s dog, Nala, was with her when she picked him up, he said. Capobianco said Scott later was driving behind him to Haiku, but he lost sight of

her SUV at some point. He said he figured she arrived safely at her destination. So far, the locations involved are all in what’s considered Upcountry Maui, the more rural part of the island. “I sent her a text that said, ‘thank you,’ but I figured she was working, that’s why she didn’t get back to me right away,” Capobianco told the news station. “It wasn’t until the cops showed up at my house at 5:30 in the morning the next day that I realized something was wrong.” Capobianco said police questioned him and administered a lie-detector test, which he was told he failed. But he told the station he “absolutely” did not hurt the green-eyed Scott, who police described as 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds. Police have not made any arrests or named any suspects. Police have not made any arrests or named any suspects. “I mean, it’s undeniable that I’m probably the prime suspect, so they’re not going to tell me details,” Capobianco said. Capobianco said he and Scott have been broken up for several years but remained friends and “occasionally hooked up.” He said he believes he’s the father of her baby but doesn’t know for sure.

Health insurance plans don’t cover weight loss surgery WASHINGTON (AP) — While the number of obese Americans persists at record levels, the number of patients undergoing weight loss surgery hasn’t budged in a decade. Last year, about 160,000 U.S. patients underwent weight loss surgery — roughly the same number as in 2004. That’s only about 1 percent of the estimated 18 million adults who qualify nationwide for the surgery, according to the American Society for Metabolic and

Bariatric Surgery. Surgeons blame a combination of factors for the stagnating numbers, including the economic downturn and a social stigma against resorting to surgery to treat weight problems. But insurance coverage is the largest hurdle, they say. Nearly two-thirds of health plans sponsored by employers don’t cover weight loss surgery, which can cost between $15,000 and $25,000.

NEW YORK — The relentless snow and ice storms this winter have led to the highest number of flight cancellations in more than 25 years, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. U.S. airlines have canceled more than 75,000 domestic flights since Dec. 1, including more than 14,000 this week. That’s 5.5 percent of the 1.37 million flights scheduled during that period, according calculations based on information provided by flight tracking site FlightAware. It’s the highest total number and highest percent of cancellations since at least the winter of 1987-1988, when the Department of Transportation first started collecting cancellation data. The nation’s air traffic system was still recovering Friday from the latest bout of bad weather. Flights were taking off again but thousands of passengers weren’t. “This year is off to a brutal start for airlines and travelers,” says FlightAware CEO Daniel Baker. “Not only is each storm causing tens of thousands of cancellations, but there’s been a lot of them.” And February still has two weeks left. Mother Nature isn’t entirely to blame. A mix of

Airline passenger Hossam Shalaby, from Egypt, waits for his rescheduled flight Tuesday to Orlando under the departure board showing hundreds of cancellations at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, in Atlanta. The relentless snow and ice storms this winter have led to the highest number of flight cancellations in more than 25 years, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. cost-cutting measures and new government regulations has made airlines more likely to cancel flights and leave fliers scrambling to get to their destination. There were days this week where more than 70 percent of flights were canceled in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Charlotte, N.C. Even typically warm — or at least warmer — weather cities were not immune. The world’s busiest airport,

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, was paralyzed Wednesday by ice and snow. Bradley Voight, 25, was one of those passengers trapped in Atlanta after his Spirit Airlines flight to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Wednesday was canceled. After a night sleeping in the airport, he eventually got home late Thursday. “It was fun because of the people I met, but it was terrible because of why I met

them,” he noted Friday. Making things worse for travelers this winter, airlines have been cutting unprofitable flights and packing more passengers into planes. That’s been great for their bottom line but has created a nightmare for passengers whose flights are canceled due to a storm. Other planes are too full to easily accommodate the stranded travelers. Many must wait days to secure a seat on another flight.

Small quake in SC felt hundreds of miles away COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A small earthquake shook South Carolina and Georgia late Friday, shaking homes and rattling residents hundreds of miles away. The quake happened at 10:23 p.m. EST and had a preliminary magnitude of 4.1, according to the U.S. Geological Survey’s website. It was centered 7 miles west of the town of Edgefield, S.C., and was felt as far west as Atlanta and as

far north as Hickory, N.C., each about 150 miles away. “It’s a large quake for that area,” said USGS geophysicist Dale Grant. “It was felt all over the place.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reported two nearby dams on the Savannah River appeared to be undamaged, but planned a thorough inspection Saturday morning, Edgefield County Emergency Preparedness

Director Mike Casey said. Casey said the quake was centered in a sparsely populated part of Edgefield County where there are a lot more rabbits and deer than people. He was driving around and hadn’t found any damage, but he expects some reports of minor damages to come in once the sun rises. Authorities across South Carolina said their 911 centers were inundated with

calls of people reporting what they thought were explosions or plane crashes as the quake’s low rumble spread across the state. Reports surfaced on Twitter of a leaking water tower in Augusta, Ga., following the quake, but the tower was damaged by ice from a winter storm earlier this week and not the quake, said Richmond County Sheriff ’s Lt. Tangela McCorkle.

US: Released Afghan prisoners could be targeted WASHINGTON (AP) — If any of the 65 Afghan militants who were released from a former U.S. prison in Afghanistan return to the battlefield, they risk being hunted down by U.S. forces, a Pentagon official suggested Friday. “Without getting into hypotheticals, every day we continue to go after those enemies in Afghanistan that are targeting our forces, the forces of our allies and the Afghan people, and nothing’s going to change about that. And should one of these

detainees rejoin the fight, they need to know that they do it at their own peril,” said the Pentagon’s press secretary, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby. The 65 were released Thursday by the Afghan government over strenuous objections by the U.S. government, which says the men are dangerous Taliban fighters and bomb-makers likely to return to killing foreign forces and Afghans. Kirby said the 65 are not considered targets at the moment.

“There’s not going to be an active targeting campaign, if that’s what you’re asking for, to go after them,” Kirby said. “That said, if they choose to return to the fight, they become legitimate enemies and legitimate targets.” The U.S. has asserted that some of them were directly linked to attacks that have killed or wounded 32 U.S. or coalition personnel and 23 Afghan security personnel or civilians. “All of these individuals are people who should not be

walking the streets,” Kirby said. “And we had strong evidence on all of them — evidence that has been ignored. And that’s unsatisfactory to us.” Kirby said Washington is concerned that the government of President Hamid Karzai might release additional prisoners deemed by the U.S. to be dangerous. The spokesman said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is frustrated by a number of recent moves by Karzai, including his decision to release the 65 prisoners.

Car bomb outside mosque in Syria kills dozens

Democratic Party secretary Matteo Renzi arrives to speak at a party leadership meeting to decide whether to yank support from Premier Enrico Letta’s fragile coalition government, accusing the premier of failing to make progress on key financial reforms, in Rome on Thursday.

Italy’s premier resigns after sacking by own party BY NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) — A car bomb blew up outside a mosque in a rebel-held village in southern Syria as worshippers were leaving after Friday prayers, killing dozens of people and filling clinics and hospitals with the wounded, anti-government activists said. The explosion in Yadouda charred vehicles parked nearby and damaged the mosque, which has a white dome, according to video images posted by activists who are fighting to oust President Bashar Assad. Yadouda is in the southern province of Daraa, the birthplace of the uprising against Assad that began with peaceful protests in March 2011 and morphed into a civil war that has killed more than 130,000 people. The motive for Friday’s blast could not immediately be determined and activists provided varying death tolls ranging from 29 to 43. Staterun TV confirmed the bombing but said only 3 people were killed. Car bombs have frequently been used by Islamic extremists both against the government and against moderate rivals in the Sunniled opposition movement. Government forces also have been known to use explosivepacked vehicles and the two

An activist in the nearby region of Quneitra, Jamal alGolani, said the car bomb killed at least 29 people of which 18 were identified. He gave The Associated Press a list of the names of the identified men who were killed.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which uses a wide network of local activists to track violence in the country, said 32 people were killed, including a child and 10 rebels. Another activist in Daraa, Ahmad al-Masalmeh, gave a

death toll of 43. He said the car bomb blew up next to a tanker truck filled with diesel causing a large fire and burning “some bodies beyond recognition.” The mosque is known as Ammar bin Yasser, although some people refer to it as al-Baraa bin Thabet, al-Masalmeh said.

ROME — Premier Enrico Letta drove himself to the Italian president’s palace and resigned Friday after he was sacked by his own party in a back-room mutiny designed to catapult Florence’s young mayor into the helm of Italy’s government. President Giorgio Napolitano accepted the resignation and immediately scheduled talks with political party leaders Friday and Saturday. After that, he was expected to ask the head of Letta’s Democratic Party, Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi, to try to form a new government. Letta is the third premier to fall from grace in as many years amid Italy’s turbulent politics and economic crisis. The country has a crushing unemployment rate, with some 40 percent of young Italians jobless. Renzi, meanwhile, spent Friday doing what he does best, being the popular, down-to-earth mayor who has used his outsider status on the national scene to project himself as a breath of fresh air for Italians fed up with the self-absorbed political class. The 39-yearold presided over a Valentine’s Day ceremony in Florence’s city hall, feting Florentines celebrating

their 50th wedding anniversaries. A day earlier, he engineered a Machiavellian internal no-confidence vote in the party against Letta, accusing him of failing to lift Italy out of its economic and political doldrums. Without the party’s backing, Letta had no choice but to resign. The timing of the ouster was ironic, given that the national statistics bureau Istat reported Friday that fourth-quarter GDP edged up 0.1 percent, the first positive growth since mid-2011. In a tweet Friday as he arrived at Napolitano’s office, Letta said he was resigning and thanked “all those who have helped me.” Napolitano had tapped Letta in April, hoping he could lead long enough to enact sorely needed electoral reforms meant to make Italy more governable. Those reforms are still on the table, but Renzi recently met with the Democrats’ center-right rival, Silvio Berlusconi, to seek his support for a new electoral law that would try to end Italy’s parliamentary paralysis. Renzi’s maneuver against Letta was stunning even by Italian standards, since he had long insisted that he would only go for the premiership via an election. But analysts said he saw an opportunity and seized it.

Thousands of zoo Uganda’s leader to sign anti-gay bill animals killed in Europe annually STOCKHOLM (AP) — People around the world were stunned when Copenhagen Zoo killed a healthy 2-year-old giraffe named Marius, butchered its carcass in front of a crowd that included children and then fed it to lions. But Marius’ fate isn’t unique — thousands of animals are euthanized in European zoos each year for a variety of reasons by zoo managers who say their job is to preserve species, not individual animals. In the U.S., zoos try to avoid killing animals by using contraceptives to make sure they don’t have more offspring than they can house, but that method has also been criticized for disrupting animals’ natural behavior.

cies theoretically allow for killing animals for breeding purposes or lack of housing but it’s not something his zoo has done. Generally, he says, animals are only killed due to old age or ill health. In Asia, the parent company for the Singapore Zoo said in a statement that “euthanasia of animals is necessary to maintain the health and welfare of the herd, as overcrowding could lead to injuries, stress and disease outbreak. “ “All animals in zoos die at some point and maybe zoos forgot to tell people,” said Jens Sigsgaard, director at the Aalborg Zoo in Denmark, which, like the Copenhagen Zoo, performs open dissections of animals for educational purposes.

How often are large mammals killed in zoos?

What kinds of animals are killed?

U.S. and European zoological groups refuse to release figures for the total number of animals killed. But David Williams Mitchell, spokesman of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria, or EAZA, estimates an average zoo in its 347member organization annually kills about five large mammals, which adds up to 1,735. The number doesn’t include zoos and animal parks that don’t belong to the association. Animal rights groups suggest numbers are much higher. The Associated Press contacted 10 zoos in Europe — two refused to comment, four said they never kill any animals unless severely ill and four said they kill between one and 30 animals every year. Two zoos in the U.S. said they only ever kill animals for “quality of life reasons.”

Both endangered species and other animals are killed. EAZA says five giraffes have been killed in European zoos since 2005. In addition to Marius, Copenhagen Zoo says it kills 20-30 antelopes, llamas, goats and other animals yearly. The Jyllands Park Zoo in Denmark said it may have to kill another giraffe soon for similar reasons as in Marius’ case. But a spokesman for Jack Hanna, emeritus director of the Columbus Zoo,said Friday that Hanna has raised more than $100,000 in pledges to save that giraffe. Aalborg Zoo in Denmark kills up to 15 animals a year, including red river hogs, antelopes and capybaras, while Skansen Zoo in Stockholm says it euthanized one bear and one Eurasian lynx last year. Some zoos also raise pigs, goats and cattle to feed their carnivores.

Why are animals killed? Zoos euthanize animals because of poor health, old age, lack of space or conservation management reasons. EAZA policy for zoos in Europe suggests euthanasia may be used as a last resort to achieve a balanced population within breeding programs — Marius was killed to prevent inbreeding. But Williams Mitchell insists only “a fraction of 1 percent” of the killings are for such reasons. The idea is to maintain a group of genetically healthy animals in zoos that can be used to reintroduce the species into the wild. There’s a philosophical divide between U.S. and European zoos over best practices. The U.S. Association of Zoos and Aquariums said incidents such as the giraffe killing “do not happen at AZA-accredited zoos.” Mike McClure, general curator at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, says his zoo’s poli-

What do zoos do to avoid killing animals? When animals reproduce, most zoos first try to find another one in their network they can send the offspring to. A German zoo this week said it would send a monkey to the Czech Republic because he’s produced so many offspring that he would soon start having children with his own relatives. Zoos generally avoid selling the animals on the open market, fearing they will end up in poor conditions. Some European zoos and most zoos in the U.S. choose to use contraceptives or sterilization or separate males and females to avoid breeding more animals than they can house. Sharon Dewar, spokeswoman for the U.S. animal Population Management Center, says animals are recommended to “breed only when sustainable housing for any offspring can be assured.”

BANKS Smaller banks likely to go ahead Continued from Page A1 And governments that allow marijuana sales want a channel to receive taxes. But a leading financial services trade group immediately expressed misgivings and others, too, said the guidelines don’t go far enough in protecting banks. “After a series of red lights, we expected this guidance to be a yellow one,” said Don Childears, president and CEO of the Colorado Bankers Association. “This isn’t close to that. At best, this amounts to ‘serve these customers at your own risk’ and it emphasizes all of the risks. This light is red.” Washington and Colorado in 2012 became the first states to approve recreational use of marijuana. A group is hoping to make Alaska the third state in the nation to do so. Currently, processing money from marijuana sales puts federally insured banks at risk of drug racketeering charges, so they’ve refused to open accounts for marijuana-related businesses. Friday’s move was designed to let financial institutions serve such businesses while ensuring that they know their customers’ legitimacy and remain obligated to report possible criminal activity, said the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes

Enforcement Network, or FinCEN. But in response, the American Bankers Association said “guidance or regulation doesn’t alter the underlying challenge for banks. As it stands, possession or distribution of marijuana violates federal law, and banks that provide support for those activities face the risk of prosecution and assorted sanctions.” The group says banks will only be comfortable serving marijuana businesses if federal prohibitions on the drug are changed in law. Denny Eliason, a lobbyist for the Washington Bankers Association, said it will take some time before banks decide whether to take advantage of the guidance. He called it a good first step, but said it sets forth a complicated process for the banks to follow — for example, by filing suspicious activity reports designated “marijuana limited” in the case of business that seem to be complying with the rules, and “marijuana priority” for those acting questionably. “They’ll have to have a real awareness of the activities of their customers,” he said. State banking regulators in Colorado and Washington appear to believe that mainly small and medium-sized banks will be interested in handling financial transactions with legal marijuana stores, not the big ones, a FinCEN official said, speaking only on condition of anonymity to talk about internal deliberations.

“This is a decision that each financial institution needs to make on its own,” the official said. “We feel quite comfortable that we have acted within the scope of our authority” and therefore don’t expect legal challenges to the new procedures. FinCEN writes the rules that U.S. financial institutions must follow to help protect the system from money laundering and the financing of terrorism. The office said it expects financial institutions to perform thorough customer due diligence on marijuana businesses and file reports that will be valuable to law enforcement. Under the guidance, banks must review state license applications for marijuana customers, request information about the business, develop an understanding of the types of products to be sold and monitor publicly available sources for any negative information about the business. Asked about the conflict in federal and state laws on marijuana use, the official said the agency sought to balance competing interests. One of them is the concern about having so much cash on the street without an ability to get those funds into the safety of a bank. The guidance provided the banks with more than 20 “red flags” that may indicate a violation of federal law. Among them: if a business receives substantially more revenue than its local com-

petitors, deposits more cash than is in line with the amount of marijuana-related revenue it is reporting for federal and state tax purposes, or experiences a surge in activity by third parties offering goods or services such as equipment suppliers or shipping services. If a marijuana-related business is seen engaging in international or interstate activity, such as the receipt of cash deposits from locations outside the state, that’s a red flag, too. It has been difficult for legal marijuana sellers to operate without banks in the mix. “It’s not just banks that are wary about handling our money, it’s everybody — security businesses, lawyers, you name it, no one wants to take the risk of taking our money,” said Caitlin McGuire, owner of Breckenridge Cannabis Club in Breckenridge, Colo. McGuire’s shop had an account with a local credit union for years, but the credit union cut them off last year. “They basically told us they wanted to keep our accounts, but it was too big of a risk. They were questioned by their auditors, ‘Why do you have this marijuana account?’ It just ended up being too much for them.” The pot shop now pays its bills with money orders and cash. It’s not easy, McGuire said. “It’s made it very difficult to pay our bills, to pay our employees, to pay our taxes, to do anything.”

Eight Oregon high schools, such as the Roseburg Indians, would need to find new mascots under the current rule. Another seven schools identified as the Warriors would be allowed to keep their

nickname but must change mascots or graphics that depict Native Americans. The regulation would also apply to an unknown number of elementary and middle schools. The Roseburg School Board had begun a legal challenge to the state orders, but abandoned it after learning it was unlikely to win. But Sen. Jeff Kruse, RRoseburg, took up the issue with a 2013 bill and similar legislation this year. “From the perspective of the people in Roseburg — and I am one — being a Roseburg Indian is a source of pride for me,” Kruse said. Kruse was concerned that the mascot ban was enacted outside of the state’s government-to-government relationship with the tribes and could have “set a very good relationship in a back-

ward mode.” Bill SB 1509 seeks to respect that relationship, he said, by allowing the tribes to have a say in the Native American representations and the conditions under which schools may be allowed to continue their use. The bill would give the state Board of Education until Jan. 1, 2017, to work out general rules for mascot use agreements in consultation with the tribes. Kruse said he hoped it would also lead to more opportunities to educate Oregon children about the history and impact of Native Americans in the state. In Senate committee hearings earlier this week, opponents of the original bill said it would allow Indian mascots that are racist, harm the self-esteem of Native American students and

encourage bullying of those students. Se-ah-dom Edmo, vice president of the Oregon Indian Education Association, told the Senate Education and Workforce Development Committee Tuesday the issue is “in part” about government-to-government relations, but is also about individual human and civil rights. But Edmo said Friday that she is happy with the compromise reached and believes the consultation process it creates will allow all of the issues to be worked out while respecting tribal and individual rights. Since the 1970s, more than 600 high school and college teams across the country have done away with their Native American nicknames, including 20 in Oregon.

Oregon university settles lawsuit over service dog PORTLAND (AP) — Portland State University will pay $161,500 to settle a lawsuit claiming it discriminated against disabled students who have service animals. Deaf student Cindy Leland and the Fair Housing Council of Oregon filed the $1 million lawsuit in 2012, alleging the university wouldn’t allow Leland and her dog to live in an on-campus apartment that had carpeting. The suit

also said she couldn’t complete prerequisites for a master’s degree program because a teaching assistant told her the dog wasn’t allowed in a science lab. Portland State admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement signed Thursday by federal judge Michael Simon. Leland and the housing council will split $142,500 in an unspecified way, and the rest of money will go into an interest-bearing account to com-

pensate current and former students who file claims that they were treated differently because of their disabilities. As part of the settlement, the university agreed to revise its policies regarding assistance animals and provide more training for some employees. Leland’s attorney, Dennis Steinman, said the remedies approved by the judge are far-reaching and a model for all universities to follow.

The 200 medley relay teams in heat three, including North Bend’s A and B teams, start off the wall at the District 4 swim meet Friday. The final in the event should be one of the top races today, with several of the state’s best teams competing for the title.

Swimmers race for titles today BY JOHN GUNTHER The World

NORTH BEND — The two new teams made a splash at the Class 4A-3A-2A-1A District 4 swim meet Friday at North Bend pool. The girls from Marshfield, which has dropped down from Class 4A, and St. Mary’s, which is a new program, both had strong days in qualifying Friday during the preliminaries for the meet, which concludes today. They join Henley, Phoenix and host North Bend giving the district five of the top girls teams in the state. All scoring will take place today, when the swimmers are competing not just for individual and team honors, but also spots in next weekend’s state meet at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham. The winner of each race at the four district meets around Oregon this weekend advances to the state meet, along with the next eight fastest swimmers in each event. Marshfield’s girls hope to have a lot of those qualifiers, while also winning their fourth straight dis-

in every event. St. Mary’s, meanwhile, burst onto the scene this year, led by Alyse Darnall, who swam for Phoenix in the past. Darnall, who has attended St. Mary’s through high school, asked for a couple of years if the school could have a team of its own and it finally became a reality. “We got the AD on board, and he thought it was a great idea,” Darnall said.

The Crusaders debuted this year with a squad of 12 girls and four boys. “I was thrilled with the turnout,” she said. And the quality of the swimmers immediately made St. Mary’s a c o n t e n d e r See related photos at this weekend and next. “It’s amazing,” she said. “It’s such a blessing. I could not have seen this.” Darnall, who is the clear favorite in the 100-yard backstroke, expects to be in one of the best individual races today — the 100-yard freestyle. In that race, she goes head-tohead with North Bend’s Alyssa Bennett, who beat Darnall at district last year, only to have the order reversed at state. “We love racing together,” Darnall said, just after Bennett walked by to congratulate her after the 100 freestyle preliminaries. “We have a good friendship.

Pirates clinch share of FWL title THE WORLD

Bandon had in the final two quarters. The Red Devils shot 4-for-5 from downtown in the third quarter with a pair of 3-pointers each from Scolari and Kai Griggs. Scolari led the way with 21 points on the night, but no two bigger then the back-to-back treys he hit to set the tone early in the second half.

Marshfield’s boys basketball team clinched at least a share of the Far West League title by beating visiting South Umpqua 56-41 on Friday. The Pirates can clinch the title outright by winning at Sutherlin on Tuesday. Otherwise, Marshfield likely will end up in a tie with Sutherlin, which would require a onegame tiebreaker to determine the league’s top seed for the Class 4A postseason. Marshfield had just a 25-20 lead at halftime, but outscored the Lancers 17-1 in the third quarter. “In the first half, we were just shooting too quickly,” Marshfield coach Doug Miles said. “We talked about how to be a good teammate. It wasn’t important to be a good scorer, just make the extra pass. We were very impressive in the third quarter.” Hunter Olson had 16 points for the Pirates, while Rylee Trendell had 10 points and Kody Dean nine for Marshfield. Meanwhile, the Pirates were outstanding all night on defense, especially against South Umpqua star Erik Johnson. He still scored 14 points, but Miles was happy with his team’s effort against the sharpshooter. “He did not get many open looks,” Miles said. “And when he did, he scored.” The Pirates rotated four different types of defenders on Johnson, to try to keep him off guard — Austin Howerton, Justin Cooper, Andrew Sharp and Olson, Miles said.



Red Devils secure home playoff game BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

BANDON — Coming into the year, Coquille’s boys basketball team mapped out four goals. First, they wanted to make the Class 3A playoffs, something they clinched weeks ago. Check. Next they wanted to get a home playoff game, which they wrapped up Friday with a 59-49 win at Bandon. Check. Next is the Sunset Conference hybrid league title, which would come with a win at Gold Beach in the regular-season finale Tuesday. And Friday’s win means the Red Devils will get to play their playoff game at home for a chance to tick off their fourth goal — making it to Coos Bay for the state tournament. “I think we’re playing our best basketball right now,” Coquille coach Dan Cumberland said. “That’s when you want (to be playing your best), is at the end of the year and I feel we’re doing that. We’re peaking right now.” The first quarter belonged to Bandon and Logan Shea. Down 98, Bandon rifled off a 10-0 run behind Shea’s eight-point quarter to give the Tigers a comfortable lead going into the second quarter. “We didn’t come out early,”

Sports BOYS From Page B1 “Austin Howerton played him the majority of the time and did an outstanding job,” Miles said. Marshfield seniors Howerton, Ty Bunnell and Juan Caballero were honored before their final home game. “All the seniors scored, so that was really neat,” Miles said. Marshfield improved to 10-1 in league after a rough preseason. “I’m proud of these guys,” he said. “And I know they have some bigger goals, so we have a lot of work to do. “I always thought we had a chance to do this, but I wasn’t sure if they believed it. They showed me they do.” North Bend 45, Douglas 23: The Bulldogs bounced back from their loss to Marshfield with a strong defensive effort beating the Trojans. North Bend led just 13-10 after the first quarter, but then held Douglas to 13 points the rest of the way. “I thought the intensity level and the effort was really good. We could have pushed things a little more offensively. I thought we did a pretty decent job overall.” Matt Woods had 15 points to lead the Bulldogs. Levi Rider added eight. Cade Cloughton and Brandon Stewart had eight points each to lead Douglas. The win set up a big Tuesday night game with visiting Brookings-Harbor. North Bend can secure the league’s No. 3 seed into the postseason by beating the Bruins, but BrookingsHarbor can force a tie for third with a win over the Bulldogs. “They’re only a game behind,” Nicholls said. “We’d better be ready. On the other hand, we still have an opportunity that we’re playing for a home playoff berth.” The Bulldogs could still get a home game in the playin round if Sutherlin moves up into the top eight because of its power ranking and gets a home bye. Brookings-Harbor 60, Siuslaw 46: The Bruins beat visiting Siuslaw to set up their game with North Bend.

Sunset Conference Myrtle Point 88, Gold Beach 52: The Bobcats exploded for 32 points in the first quarter at home and

COQUILLE From Page B1 “It was in the rhythm of the offense. We came out and we needed them,” Scolari said moments after going 6for-6 from the line to salt away the win in the final two minutes. Defensively, Coquille had one job and did it well. The gameplan was to clamp down on Bandon post Evan Henson with double teams. “We doubled down a lot. We knew he’s the producer of points in the middle for them so we weren’t going to give him any,” Cumberland said. “Anything he got, he worked for. We worked really hard to keep the ball away from him.” Henson still finished with 10 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks but never got into the type of rhythm offensively the Tigers needed. The added pressure on Henson forced Bandon outside to hit jump shots — some thing they couldn’t do Friday — going 0-for-9 from 3-point range in the second half before two back-to-back garbage time treys from Tristian Davidson in the final minute. Davidson had a team-best 17 points and Shea added 15, but it wasn’t enough. “We struggled shooting the ball. We haven’t shot the ball that bad in awhile,” Nice

cruised to the win to snap a two-game losing streak. Myrtle Point hit six 3pointers in the opening quarter and feasted on transition baskets off steals, coach Dave Larsen said. “We didn’t play well against Bandon,” he said. “We didn’t play well against Coquille. We were in a slump. “We had our best practice of the season last night. I was thinking, if we play like we just practiced, it’s probably going to be ugly. And it was.” Cooper Stateler and Taylor Fischer each hit six 3pointers while scoring 28 and 22 points, respectively. Jake Miller added 14 points. Thomas Nathan had 10 points, 10 assists, seven steals and five rebounds. Myrtle Point shot 13-for23 from 3-point range and 35-for-57 overall. Dustin Carter had 23 points and Jalen Robison added 13 for the Panthers.

Braves to avoid moving into a tie for last place in the league with Reedsport.

Skyline League Powers 55, Yoncalla 45: The Cruisers beat the leagueleading team for the second straight time at home, having earlier knocked Camas Valley out of first place. “It was a great team win for us,” Powers coach Matt Shorb said. “We’re playing pretty good basketball right now.” Jackson Stallard had 16 points and Tye Jackson added 14 for the Cruisers. Devin MacKensen had nine points and 18 rebounds. Zasch Van Loon had six 3pointers and scored a gamehigh 24 points for the Eagles. Powers offset Van Loon’s outside shooting with four 3pointers by Jackson, two by Austin Stallard and one by Clayton Stallard. “It was senior night, too,” Shorb said, referring to Clayton Stallard, Jaron MacDonald and Ron Zemke. “That made it more special.” Camas Valley 64, Pacific 25: The Pirates weren’t able to stop Camas Valley’s Theran Hunt and Ryan Gallagher, who finished with 17 and 22 respectively. Pacific was led by 10 points from Cole Krueutzer. The loss keep Pacific winless in the Skyline League with a record of 0-11. They play their final game at home against New Hope Christian today.

said. “We had plenty of looks, we didn’t knock them down. They knocked theirs down. At the end of the day, they shot the ball and they played better. If we have a good shooting night, it changes. But for whatever reason our shots quit falling.” On defense, Bandon switched to man-to-man in the fourth quarter, which opened up the middle for Edwards to hit the first seven points of the quarter for Coquille. Edwards’ own mini-run stretched the lead to 50-42, essentially putting Bandon away and clinching the win for Coquille. Edwards was sick with a stomach illness Thursday and had to miss practice, but Friday night being his last chance at a Sunset Conference title, the senior was going to rise to the occasion. “That was our whole season,” Edwards said after finishing with 14 points. “This is the biggest win of the season by far. I had to be a leader. I had to help out the younger guys and once I got going, all the younger guys helped out too.” While Coquille will travel to Gold Beach to close out its season Tuesday before starting its postseason at home, Bandon will host Glide, looking ahead to its own playoff game, which now likely will come on the road.

Choi sets course record MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — South Korea’s Chella Choi set a new course record with a 10-under 62 and took a share of the lead after the third round of the Women’s Australian Open on Saturday. A day after Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist broke the women’s course record with a 64 at the par-72 Victoria Golf Club, Choi eclipsed that mark with two eagles and

seven birdies. Choi, who started the day eight shots behind overnight leader Caroline Hedwall of Sweden, was tied for first with 17-year-old Australian amateur Minjee Lee at 13 under 203. “It’s the first time I’ve ever had two eagles in a round,” Choi said. “I don’t know why I have 10 under today, it was just amazing.”

Coquille girls dominate Tigers THE WORLD

Coquille’s girls jumped out to a 42-17 halftime lead and beat Bandon 70-28 in a Sunset Conference game Friday, bouncing back from a loss to rival Myrtle Point three days earlier. Maddy Grant had 14 points to lead a balanced Coquille attack. Ashley Thompson scored 11, Tara Edwards 10, Nicole Romine nine and Katie Davidson and Marina Wilson eight each. “Every win’s a big win,” Coquille coach Tim GeDeros said. “We slowed our offense down and executed and were a little more patient.” Coquille is tuning up for the Class 3A playoffs and adjusting to life without injured post player Kaitlyn Hyatt. The Red Devils have one more tuneup, Tuesday at Gold Beach, before the playoffs, when they will have a road game. Ally Richert led the Tigers with nine points in the losing effort. Bandon finishes the season against league champion Glide on Tuesday. Myrtle Point 44, Gold Beach 28: The Bobcats kept their playoff hopes alive by overcoming a slow start with tough defense to beat the visiting Panthers. Myrtle Point now faces another door-die game Tuesday at Reedsport. Myrtle Point trailed 11-6 after the first quarter before clamping down on Gold Beach the rest of the way. “From the second quarter on, we played great defense,” Myrtle Point coach Marty Stallard said. Morgan Newton had 16 points to lead Myrtle Point’s offense. “We got better as the game went on,” Stallard said. “We kept being persistent and patient and we started attacking the basket.” Hailey Timeus had 10 points for Gold Beach, which would have locked up a playoff spot with a win and now also awaits the outcome of Tuesday’s game in Reedsport, where a Myrtle Point win would set up a tiebreaker procedure to break a three-way tie among the hybrid league’s three Class 2A schools.

Girls Recap

SWIMMING From Page B1 Bennett and teammate Cassie Dallas lead a North Bend team that also is in the mix. “I’ve been looking forward to finals all week,” Dallas said. “Everybody has good lanes,” Dallas said of the results of qualifying by the Bulldogs Friday. Bennett is among the favorites in the 100 and 200 freestyle and Dallas had the top qualifying times Friday in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke. In the latter, she battles Brownell and St. Mary’s teammates Olivia Dow and Grace Jovanovic in what likely will be a tight finish. “It will be a really good race,” Dallas said. “It’s really fun having somebody next to you.” “It will be exciting,” Brownell said. “That’s what makes swimming fun.” The top teams also will be in tight races in the relays, starting with the opening event today, the 200 medley relay, which likely will be a preview for the state final in the same race a week from now. Meanwhile, perhaps the best individual girl, Breanna Sapienza, is on one of the other teams, Cascade Christian.

Glide 50, Reedsport 36: The league-champion Wildcats pulled away from a tight game by outscoring the Braves 15-5 in the fourth quarter to stay perfect in league play. Kali Vickery had 10 points to lead the Wildcats, who can finish a perfect league season with a win at Bandon. Kayla Doane had 20 points for the Braves.

Far West League North Bend 40, Douglas 36: The Bulldogs made clutch plays down the stretch to beat Douglas for their second home win, helping crosstown rival Marshfield in the process. “I was very pleased with our effort tonight,” North Bend coach Eric Metcalf said. “The girls played really hard. They certainly deserved to win.” Douglas took a one-point lead on a 3pointer in the final minute, but Alex Wilkinson put North Bend back in front with a 3-pointer and the Bulldogs held on. Wilkinson and Codi Wallace had 11 points each for North Bend. But Metclaf was more thrilled with his defense. “We had 17 steals on the night,” he said. “The other great stat is we only had nine turnovers in the game. Our point guards, Hailey Finnigan and Kadie Forderer, did an outstanding job taking care of the basketball.” Metcalf also heralded Finnigan’s defense against Douglas guard Ally Schofield, who had four 3-pointers in the first quarter of the first game with the Trojans. Schofield didn’t get a shot attempt Friday. Hobson, meanwhile, played great defense against Alex Richey when North Bend used a triangle-and-two defense. Richey still had 10 points, but none in that defense, Metcalf said. Wilkinson and Hobson combined for 15 points and eight steals. Katherine Miller led Douglas with 16 points. North Bend’s win gives Marshfield third place in the final league standings unless Douglas can somehow upset top-ranked Sutherlin in the final game of the regular season. Marshfield 62, South Umpqua 16: The Pirates dominated from the start in their home finale, outscoring

the Lancers 28-6 in the first half. “We were ready to play,” Marshfield coach Bruce Bryant said. “We put a little bit of pressure on them. That helped. We got back on defense and limitSee related photos at ed their looks at the basket. And we rebounded well.” Marshfield also had balanced scoring. Baily Garrett finished with 14 points, Tracee Scott had 13, Katelyn Rossback added 11 and Jade Chavez scored nine. “We had a lot of sharing of the basketball,” Bryant said. “We’ve been looking for that all season. “It’s a good confidence builder. It’s a good game to finish at home with.” Brookings-Harbor 71, Siuslaw 38: The Bruins locked up sole possession of second place with the home win over the Vikings.

Skyline League Pacific 34, Camas Valley 31: The Pacific girls team was able to come away with a big win Friday, topping Skyline League foe Camas Valley. “I thought we played really good defense,” Pacific coach Ben Stallard said. “When you can shoot 11-for-58 and still win, you have to be proud of your defense.” Pacific was led by Riley Engdahl, who finished with a team-high 15 points despite being keyed in on by a box-andone defense. “I probably don’t say enough what a stud Riley Engdahl is,” Stallard said. Yoncalla 44, Powers 25: The Cruisers trailed by just one at halftime, but then failed to score in the third quarter as the league-leading Eagles pulled away for the win. “We couldn’t make a bucket in the second half,” Powers coach Ben Baldwin said. Rebecca Standley had 10 points to lead the Cruisers, who finish the regular season at Elkton tonight. Karen Wickman led Yoncalla with 15 points, while Abby Lions had 12 and Brianne Joslyn 10. Baldwin said Chelsie Fandel did a nice job limiting Joslyn’s scoring during the contest.

Once traded for Nolan Ryan, Jim Fregosi dies ATLANTA (AP) — Jim Fregosi’s big league career got off to a real quiet start. His first three at-bats, as a teenager for the expansion Los Angeles Angels, he hit grounders back to perennial Gold Glove pitcher Jim Kaat. Over the next half-century, Fregosi made a lot more noise in majors. Fregosi, a six-time All-Star shortstop who went to manage the Angels to their first playoff appearance and guide the rowdy 1993 Philadelphia Phillies into the World Series, died Friday after an apparent stroke. He was 71. Popular on and off the field, full of opinions and an outsized personality, Fregosi could argue with the best of ‘em. He could also laugh at himself, and would poke fun at his part in

one of baseball’s most-lopsided trades — the deal that sent him to the New York Mets for a young, wild pitcher named Nolan Ryan. The Atlanta Braves said they were notified by a family member that Fregosi died early Friday in Miami, where he was hospitalized after the apparent stroke while on a cruise with baseball alumni. Fregosi ended more than 50 years in baseball as a special assistant to Braves general manager Frank Wren. “Jim played a vital role in our club over the last 13 years,” Wren said Friday. “As a senior adviser he was someone you could always pick up the phone and get a feel for the players in the game. He covered all 30 teams for us and was such a positive, knowledgeable resource. He lit up a room and had just great

relationships throughout the game. “When I first became GM, one of the things that made the transition so easy was having Jim as close as a phone call for advice and help or encouragement.” Braves president John Schuerholz said the team would find a way to honor Fregosi this season. “He gave a lot to the game no matter what uniform he was in, no matter whether he was a player, a coach or a scout,” Schuerholz said. “Some people say he could have managed again right now. He was so smart and knew the game so well. I agree with that.” Schuerholz said Fregosi “didn’t grow into this personality. I think he was born with it. I think he had that personality when he was born.” Along with the Phillies and

Angels — where he was reunited with Ryan and made the playoffs in 1979 — Fregosi managed the Chicago White Sox and Toronto. He took over the White Sox in the middle of the 1986 season after Tony La Russa was fired, and was hired by the Blue Jays after manager Tim Johnson was dismissed during spring training in 1999 for lying about his military service record. Phillies president David Montgomery said the team and others in baseball “lost a dear friend.” “He’ll be remembered for his vibrant personality, wisdom and love of the game,” Montgomery said in a statement. “Our deepest sympathy is extended to his widow, Joni, daughters Nikki, Lexy and Jennifer and sons Robert and Jim.” Giants general manager Brian

Sabean said Fregosi’s death “leaves a hole in the unique fabric of our great game. He was a great friend and mentor to so many, no matter what hat he wore.” “He was a one-of-a-kind baseball lifer,” he said. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig spoke of Fregosi’s widespread relationships in the game. “The outpouring of support in recent days illustrates the vast respect that Jim earned in a great baseball life,” Selig said in a statement. Fregosi was an infielder in the majors from 1961 to 1978, hitting .265 with 151 homers and 706 RBIs. His best seasons came with the Angels. In 15 seasons as a manager, he posted a 1,028-1,094 record.

many other league employees who worked under Stern attended the press conference. “I wanted to be here for David because I knew he wasn’t in New Orleans this weekend. Just to be here to share the experience and then relay it back to him what the feel in the room was,” said Silver, who worked under Stern since 1992. “As I said earlier, while David is a modest guy, I know he was moved by the fact this was all happening so quickly, and he has always told me he doesn’t like to reflect back sort of

on his life or his career, but this will certainly force him to. And I know this is an emotional moment for him and it’s an emotional moment for everybody who has worked with him over these years.” Alonzo Mourning, T im Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, Kevin Johnson and Spencer Haywood are hoping to be part of the class. They were chosen as finalists, with the full class to be unveiled April 7 during the NCAA Final Four. Hardaway and Richmond were teammates in Golden State and made up the Warriors’ “Run TMC”

trio along with Chris Mullin, who was elected to the Hall in 2011. Stern retired on Feb. 1 after exactly 30 years as commissioner, during which he brought the league to its greatest success. Jerry Colangelo, chairman of the Hall of Fame board, said the Hall hopes to have a special spot to display a tribute to Stern. “He deserves to be recognized in a huge way,” Colangelo said. Stern was elected by the contributors committee. Also directly elected to the Hall of Fame were Lithuania star Sarunas Marciulionis

by the international committee, former Indiana Pacers coach Bob “Slick” Leonard by the ABA committee, former New York Knicks player Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton by the early African-American pioneers committee, and former Temple star Guy Rodgers by the veterans committee. College coaches Eddie Sutton, Nolan Richardson and Gary Williams were also finalists, as were former women’s coach Harley Redin and the women’s team from Immaculata College, which won three straight national championships.

Tired Blazers slide into the All-Star break PORTLAND (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers are learning the hard part of rising to the top of the league is staying there. Portland limps into the All-Star Break having lost four of its last six games. While LaMarcus Aldridge makes his third All-Star appearance and Damian Lillard makes his first, the rest of the Blazers will get a much-needed break. It’s been clear that they’re fatigued. After a 2-2 road trip, the Blazers fell 98-92 at home Tuesday night to Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder, before losing 122-117 to the Clippers in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. After spending time this season atop the Western Conference, Portland is 36-17 and currently knotted in a three-way tie with Houston and the Clippers for third place, behind the Thunder and San Antonio. “It’s definitely not the way we wanted to end it,” Aldridge said following the loss to the Clippers. “We definitely wanted to be on better terms going into the break. But one thing about it is that we took care of business early. I knew there were going to be ups and downs this season, so luckily we put that cushion early where we’re still number three or number four in the West.” The Blazers got off to a surprising 24-5 start this season, the best record in the NBA at the time. A revamped roster and the fierce play of Aldridge and Lillard helped fuel the ascent. Last summer, the Blazers added a true center in Robin Lopez and a capable backup for Lillard in Mo Williams. Additionally, Portland found much-needed bench help with the addition of Thomas Robinson and Dorell Wright, as well as draft pick CJ McCollum. Aldridge has been having the best season of his career, averaging 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds. He has 33 doubledoubles overall and set a new career high with 44 points in a victory over Denver last month. Even Blazers owner Paul Allen, who doesn’t often

publicly comment about the team, said he’s been impressed. “If you watch him out there, he’s so engaged in the games,” Allen said.“He’s taken on more of a leadership role. I think it’s evident in all aspects of his game.” Lillard, who isn’t being so taxed minutes-wise this season, is averaging 20.7 points and 5.7 assists. Even Lopez has emerged with career bests this season, averaging 10.7 points and 8.4 rebounds, with 19 double-doubles. In New Orleans for this year’s All-Star game, Aldridge credited the addition of Lopez for his own improvement. “It’s just growth, having the mindset to do it, and having Robin Lopez helps because he holds off his man, and he’s more about position in rebounds, so he’s always holding off his guy so I can go rebound better,” Aldridge said. Portland’s 36 wins are the fourth most at the All-Star break in team history, and the most since the Blazers won 38 before the 2000 All-Star game. “Nobody put us even in the playoff race. And then even myself, I projected number seven. So, you know, we’re not satisfied. But to be number four in the West right now, not shooting the ball well, and to come into the season with everybody not even thinking about us. We’re not in a bad spot right now,” Aldridge said. There are 29 games left for the Blazers to solidify their return to the playoffs for the first time since 2011, when they got eliminated in the first round by Dallas. Portland plays seven of its next eight at home,but then 10 of its games in March on the road. There is also a chance the Blazers could make a move before the trade deadline. While Allen and coach Terry Stotts have played down the idea, the loss of forward Joel Freeland to an MCL injury earlier this week raised speculation that Portland may look for a big man to help back up Lopez. Freeland is expected to be sidelined for a month.

Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, right, played in Friday’s Rising Star NBA All Star Challenge on Friday. Lillard will be busy this weekend as he will be participating in five separate contests.

Blazer sizes up his competition NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Damian Lillard didn’t enter all three NBA All-Star skills competitions just for the fun of it. “If I didn’t think I had a chance to win all of them, I wouldn’t put my name in them,” Lillard said. “But I really feel strong about the 3-point shootout.” The Portland guard is the reigning champion of the skills competition, which will take place Saturday night, along with the 3-point shooting contest and the dunk contest. This year, though, Lillard sees the tandem of the Phoenix’s Goran Dragic and Oklahoma City’sReggie Jackson as potential favorites. Four two-man teams will compete in the skills challenge, going through the course in a relay format with a single time. The competition consists of dribbling around obstacles, passing to targets as well as hitting close and mid-range shots. As well as Dragic has played this season, averaging 20.3 points,6.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game, Lillard said the Suns guard should have been on the Western Conference roster for Sunday night’s main event. If Lillard had to pick a favorite other than himself to win the 3-point shooting contest, he said it would be Golden State’s Stephen Curry, who has made 41.5 percent of his shots

from 3-point range and whose 3.4 3-pointers made per game leads the league. As for the dunk contest, which this season will be a competition between conferences, Lillard expects his Western Conference team that includes Golden State’s Harrison Barnes and Sacramento’s Ben McLemore to come out on top. The East’s dunk squad consists of Indiana’s Paul George, Toronto’s Terrence Ross and Washington’s John Wall. Lillard also agreed to participate in Friday night’s future stars game, meaning the AllStar game itself will have been his fifth event of the weekend. In other words, he won’t be giving his body much of a rest during the All-Star break. “I’ll be fine. I’m not concerned with it. I’m not going to spend a lot of time on the court, to be honest with you,” Lillard said. “I’ll shoot for two minutes (in the 3-point contest),skills for two minutes and we’ll dunk for maybe five minutes.”

In each of the last five All-Star games, at least one team has eclipsed 140 points, and there have been three such games in which both teams did it, including the 2012 game that saw the West beat the East, 152-149. But the late addition to the Western Conference roster of Davis, who was added by new NBA Commissioner Adam Silver in place of injured Kobe Bryant, brings the NBA’s leading shot-blocker to the game. “It’s not really a defenseoriented game. We just go out there and have fun, but I’ve played against all these guys already so they know I love to block shots,” Davis said. “It’s going to be tough. Maybe I can get a couple blocks on the perimeter when guys shoot jumper.” Davis indeed has blocked inside and outside shots all season, averaging 3.1 blocks per game.

During the 2008 All-Star game in New Orleans, the Hyatt was still a few years away from reopening after many of its floor-to-ceiling windows had been blown out by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. “Think about what kind of shape this hotel was in postKatrina,” Johnson said. “To see the great remodel of this hotel, this shows the strength of New Orleans, and me being a New Orleans native ... I just can’t sleep at night knowing the economic impact that this All-Star weekend is going to have on New Orleans could exceed $85 million.”

Kevin Hart cedes celeb MVP to U.S. education secretary NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Film star Kevin Hart’s reign as the best celebrity basketball player of NBA All-Star weekend has come to a humbling end, even if the fans in attendance thought otherwise. The 5-foot-2 Hart had seven points and four assists for the West team in a 60-56 loss to the East squad Friday night, but fans voted him the game MVP for a third straight year. Rather than accept the trophy, Hart insisted it go to U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who had 20 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for the East. The 6-5 Duncan played at Harvard. Hart says he had to be “a humble loser,” but the comedian adds that on the bright side, his new movie, “About Last Night,” is in theaters this weekend.

ning MVP honors. A 41 percent shooter during the regular season, the Detroit forward went 6 for 8, including a pair with 29 seconds left after chasing down Bradley Beal’s missed free throw to give his team a five-point lead. Cleveland’s Dion Waiters had 31 points, mostly coming during a 1-on-1 duel with New York’s Tim Hardaway Jr. in the second half. Beal finished with 21 for Team Hill, picked by former NBA star Grant Hill. Hardaway scored 36 points and made seven 3-pointers for fellow former Michigan star Chris Webber’s squad. Philadelphia rookie Michael CarterWilliams had 17 points, nine assists and six rebounds.

Anthony staying with Knicks Drummond’s 30-25 wins Rising Stars Challenge NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Andre Drummond had 30 points and a Rising Stars Challenge-record 25 rebounds, leading Team Hill to a 142-136 victory over Team Webber on Friday night. Besides an impressive tally of dunks and rebounds, Drummond even managed to make his free throws while win-

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Carmelo Anthony said Friday he knows “for a fact” the Knicks won’t trade him, and said he would be open to staying in New York for less than a maximum contract. Anthony has said he plans to become a free agent this summer. The NBA’s trade deadline is Thursday, but Anthony ruled out any chance the Knicks would move him to avoid the possibility they

could lose him for nothing in July. “I know for a fact I’m not being traded,” Anthony said at the NBA’s All-Star weekend. “There’s two things: I know for a fact I’m not being traded and I’m not going in there and saying I want to be traded.” New York can pay him around $30 million more than any team, but Anthony said he wouldn’t insist on making the Knicks do it. “As far as the money, it don’t really matter to me. If I go somewhere else I get paid, if I stay in New York I get paid,” Anthony said. “So as far as the money goes, that’s not my concern. My concern is being able to compete on a high level, at a championship level coming at this last stretch of my career.” The Knicks aren’t doing it now. They are 20-32, one of the league’s biggest disappointments after winning the Atlantic Division last season, and are wasting a strong season by Anthony that has him ranked second in the league with 27.3 points per game while also averaging 8.6 rebounds. The Knicks need plenty more, and it will be tough to get because they are already so far over the salary cap.

Truex travels a long, and oft delayed road

The Associated Press

Tony Stewart after practice for the Sprint Unlimited auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., on Friday.

Rebuilt Stewart is ready for Daytona DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. As far as he’s concerned, those are the only major changes since he broke two bones in his leg in an August sprint-car crash. So when the green flag drops Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway for his first race since the accident, Stewart believes it will be the same old “Smoke” behind the wheel. If he had any doubts — and he’s insisted he doesn’t — they were alleviated by 24 smooth laps in the first of two Friday night practice sessions for the exhibition Sprint Unlimited. All told, Stewart ran 50 laps — 125 miles — around Daytona. “There’s zero percentage of pain in the car. That was nice,” Stewart said. “I thought we would have some kind of ache or pain, but it was like putting on an old pair of shoes again.” Stewart, who does not have a backup driver at Daytona, has not raced in more than six months. It’s an unheard of amount of time off for a driver who makes his money racing in NASCAR yet crisscrossed the country cramming 50 or more weeknight events into his year-round schedule. So he found himself clockwatching Friday afternoon, anxious to put his firesuit back

on and head into the garage for the first time this season. A notorious late-arriver to his car, Stewart showed up to the garage stall for the No. 14 Chevrolet almost 20 minutes early. He was in his seat, buckled in and helmet on, with almost 10 minutes to just sit and think about his first few laps. “Every five minutes, I was looking at the clock. That’s a long time to be staring at the clock,” said Stewart,who joked he told new crew chief Chad Johnston not to expect to see him at the car so early moving forward. “That’s not going to be a habit.” Fans above his garage stall cheered Stewart’s arrival, and he was greeted by a sizeable media contingent at the car. Standing quietly in front of the car was his father,Nelson,who said the scene “almost reminds me of when he ran the (Indianapolis) 500 for the first time.” It was a mundane day of practice, but Stewart didn’t mind the attention. “Today in the big picture was just another practice day, but obviously it was a little bigger than normal,” he admitted. So relieved at how smooth it went, the old Stewart quickly returned as he felt the tug from nearby dirt track Volusia Speedway Park. “If I didn’t think that Greg

Zipadelli would absolutely kill me, I would probably want to go race at Volusia tonight. It felt that good,” he said.“I don’t think Zippy would be the only guy — I think the entire organization would probably duct tape me to the flag pole on the front stretch just so I couldn’t go.” Instead, walking with a slight limp, he headed inside his team hauler to “do what I always do — eat some animal crackers and have a Coke.” Stewart’s layoff was certainly difficult, enhanced by the pain from his broken leg. He had two surgeries for the breaks, then a third to treat an infection. He was flat on his back, confined to the firstfloor bedroom of his longtime business manager’s house, where he was forced to lay with his leg elevated above his heart. When there was Stewart-Haas Racing business to address, team personnel did it at his bedside. Stewart required an ambulance to get to his doctor appointments, and when he finally was able to get out of bed, he needed a wheelchair to get around. And when Stewart — a driver SHR vice president of competition Zipadelli referred to as “Superman” in the days after his accident — finally made an appearance at the race track, it was on a motorized scooter.

Nobody was comfortable seeing the three-time NASCAR champion so restricted. Many wondered if he’d ever be the same. Not Stewart. “Right off the bat, the surgeon, the therapists, they’ve all said, ‘You’re going to have 100-percent recovery,’” Stewart said. “With that, from Day 1, it took the doubt out.” Any questions about getting back into a race car were erased, and Stewart turned his attention to his recovery. He wondered when he’d be 100 percent — doctors have told him it will take a year, and he said this week his leg is only 65 percent healed — and when the pain would subside. He asked doctors if he’d always have some sort of lingering pain, and he threw himself into a tough rehabilitation program. As he progressed and moved closer to Friday’s practice sessions, his SHR team built a module that includes a seat, steering wheel, steering column and pedals so Stewart could sit and hold the pedal down for 20 minutes to simulate the pressure of having his foot on the throttle. New teammate Kevin Harvick ordered Stewart a special pad that hangs off the steering wheel that will prevent his knees from banging into the steering column.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. took a winding, unexpected path to find a new job. He didn’t realize it would seem to take almost as long and be just as cumbersome to join his Furniture Row Racing team at Daytona. Truex was one of the final stragglers to make it to the track after weather woes — and some poor planning — forced him to miss Thursday’s Daytona 500 media day. Truex’s plane that was scheduled to leave at 10:45 a.m. Thursday didn’t take off until close to 5 p.m. because a winter storm and icy conditions that affected travel in the South and East. Truex’s 15minute drive to the airport took about an 1 hour, 15 minutes. Truex, and his travel partner, Ryan Newman, both were no-shows at the kickoff for the Daytona 500. Truex was in an 0 for 2 slump in NASCAR media appearances: He checked in via Skype from Anguilla — with palm trees in the background and drink with umbrella in hand — during last month’s media tour. Upbeat and much, much warmer, Truex at last made it Friday. And he can’t wait to get going. Truex will make his debut for Furniture Row Racing at Daytona, a season after losing his ride in one of the biggest scandals in NASCAR history. He lost his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, his sponsor, and his job — a trifecta of bad news that left him scrambling for a ride late in 2013. He didn’t reach an agreement with Furniture Row until November in Texas. “There’s a lot of time between Texas and the Daytona 500 to think about it,” Truex said. “It’s kind of a tough time there. You really want to get in there with your new team and get to work.” Truex hopes he found a home at Furniture Row, a one-car operation based in Denver, Colo., far removed from NASCAR’s North Carolina hub. The seat opened when Kurt Busch bolted for a ride at the suddenly crowded Stewart-Haas Racing organization. More resources, more cash, more opportunities to win. Furniture Row, though, had amazing success with Busch. Busch turned the tra-

ditionally undewhelming organization into championship contenders, helping them become the first single-car team to earn a berth in the Chase. “It definitely makes you feel better knowing that they’ve been able to put up great results and they’ve had fast race cars,” Truex said. “That’s part of the reason I went there. I wasn’t going to go there if I didn’t think we couldn’t win races. That’s not what I’m here for.” The other part? Truex needed a job when Michael Waltrip Racing crew chief Ty Norris was caught on the radio during the September race at Richmond instructing MWR driver Brian Vickers to pit to help teammate Truex make the Chase. NASCAR investigated and bounced Truex from the 12driver Chase field following the Richmond scandal. MWR was fined $300,000 for manipulating the outcome of the race, and all three crew chiefs for the organization were placed on probation for the rest of the season. MWR also lost a major sponsorship deal with NAPA. Newman took Truex’s spot in the Chase and Jeff Gordon was added to the field as a 13th driver. “It was tough for me,” Truex said, “but I moved on pretty quick. I’m very fortunate I was able to land in a great position right now, with how things went and how late in the season it was.” Truex may be a one-driver entry, but he’s far from alone. Richard Childress Racing has a technical alliance with Furniture Row, that includes technology sharing, engineering, and research and development. Truex made a couple of offseason trips to Denver to bond with his new crew. He’d like to help Furniture Row go back-to-back with a Chase spot — something he can do with a victory. Truex, though, has only two career wins, including one last season at Sonoma. After the penalties, he was 16th in the standings. He’s not looking back — ready to push scandal aside and focus on a new era. “If you ever had to pick a time to switch teams, you’d want to do it when there’s some big rules changes,” Truex said. “You kind of start off on an even playing field.”

NFL finds ‘pattern of harassment’ in Dolphins case BY STEVE REED The Associated Press An investigation into the racially charged Miami Dolphins bullying scandal detailed widespread harassment in the team’s locker room that extended beyond the two players at the center of the probe. The NFL-ordered report stated there was a “pattern of harassment” committed by at least three players and extended to two lineman and an assistant trainer, all targets of vicious taunts and racist insults. Lawyer Ted Wells released the report Friday, saying guard John Jerry and center Mike Pouncey followed Richie Incognito’s lead in harassing Jonathan Martin, who left the team in October. They threatened to rape his sister, called him a long list of slurs and bullied him for not being “black enough.” In a statement emailed by a league spokesman,the NFL did not make any mention of possible punishment stemming from the case. The league only confirmed it had received the report and said it appreciated the Dolphins’ cooperation with the investigation. Wells said he does not intend to comment further. Martin is biracial, Incognito is white, and Jerry and Pouncey are black. Martin’s agent Kenneth Zuckerman said his client feels “vindicated” by the report. “He feels a great sense of relief,” Zuckerman told The Associated Press. “Jonathan Martin is a great man and he’s only shown me that he is very honest since the day I met him. He loves football and is eager to get back on the field, regardless of what team he plays for.” Incognito’s attorney Mark Schamel released a statement calling Wells’ report “replete with errors” and said that Martin “was never bullied by Richie Incognito or any member of the Dolphins’ offensive line.” Martin, who has two years left on his contract with the Dolphins, declined interview requests.

Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito (68) and tackle Jonathan Martin (71) look over plays during a preseason football game in August 2013. Incognito was suspended in November, but Pouncey and Jerry remained starters throughout the season. The report mentioned another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer who also routinely came under attack from the trio. Neither was identified in the report. The report chronicled Martin’s struggle to deal with a “pattern of harassment,” including emotional text exchanges with his parents and a description of him crying in the bathroom after one particularly painful attack. Martin also told investigators that he “believed that trying to engage in a physical confrontation with these three — whom he viewed as a united group — would only make

matters worse.” The inquiry said Martin was taunted and ridiculed almost daily. After Martin left the team, Incognito boasted about “breaking Jmart” in a notebook the linemen used to tally fines and bonuses among themselves. When the investigation began, Incognito asked another player to destroy the book, saying “They’re going to suspend me.” The other harassed player was “subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching,” while the assistant trainer, who was born in Japan, was subjected to racial slurs. “It was not difficult to conclude that the Assistant Trainer and Player A were harassed,

but the questions raised in Martin’s case were more complex, nuanced and difficult,” the report says. Although Wells concluded that Martin was abused by three teammates, the report said “they did not intend to drive Martin from the team or cause him lasting emotional injury.” Evaluating Martin’s claims was difficult, “given his mental health issues, his possible heightened sensitivity to insults and his unusual, ‘ bipolar’ friendship with Incognito,” the report said. “Nonetheless, we ultimately concluded that Martin was indeed harassed by Incognito, who can fairly be described as the main instigator.” The report comes about three months after the league hired Wells to investigate the case, which prompted a national debate about hazing and workplace bullying. Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner didn’t attempt to stop the behavior and even took part in some of the taunting of “Player A,” the report said. Several people interviewed told investigators that Turner gave Player A, a male sex doll as a gag gift around Christmas 2012. Turner told investigators he did not remember the incident, but investigators said they did not believe him. However, the report found no evidence that the Dolphins front office or head coach Joe Philbin was aware of the conduct Martin found abusive. Incognito expressed regrets about the racist and profane language he used with Martin, but said it stemmed from a culture of locker-room “brotherhood,” not bullying. Martin has said he tried to be friends with Incognito. The two players traded more than a thousand text messages in a year’s span, and the teasing and vulgar banter went both ways. Martin also participated in the teasing of Player A, although investigators say he was simply trying to fit in with the other linemen.

Winter Olympics Russian president visits USA House

The Associated Press

Alla Tsuper of Belarus jumps during the women's freestyle skiing aerials final at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park on Friday.

Belarus aerialist feeling Tsuper KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Lydia Lassila already has a gold medal sitting back home in Australia. At these Olympics, she was looking for something better. So, she raised her hand and took off down the biggest ramp on the aerials course Friday night for a jump that would cement her as the sport’s foremost trailblazer regardless of whether it earned another gold or not. She bounded off the ramp, flew six stories high and packed four twists inside of three flips. In a training run a day earlier, she had become the first woman to land that jump on snow. In the final, she bowed backward on the landing and her hands spiked against the landing hill. The 32-year-old mom from Melbourne settled for a bronze medal but did her sport a favor — make that two favors. She raised the bar for the next generation of jumpers, while clearing the way for another of the grand veterans of the game, Alla Tsuper of Belarus, to win the gold medal in her fifth and final try at the Games. “I’m really happy with the bronze,” Lassila said. “I came into these Olympics wanting to get the most out of

myself and wanting to push the sport. I wanted to lift barriers and inspire women to do harder tricks.” Xu Mengtao also bobbled backward during her landing and settled for silver, giving the Chinese women their worldleading fifth Olympic medal in this daredevil sport. None of them are gold, however. The 34-year-old Tsuper was the only skier of the four in the super final to land her jump cleanly. She scored a 98.01. At the last Olympics, she competed for Ukraine and finished eighth after winning the qualifying round — another disappointment for a woman who had been favored to medal in the three Olympics before that but had always come up empty. “In Vancouver, when I made it to the final but I didn’t medal, I thought that was it,” she said. “I took a break for two years, had a daughter and was offered to try again.” The victory gave her new country, Belarus, its third gold medal of the Olympics, leaving it one behind the United States, Norway and Canada, and one ahead of the host country, which has about 15 times the population. “I don’t think it will be our last medal of the Olympics,” Tsuper said. “Our

guys are still going to perform here.” It was an American, the late Jeret “Speedy” Peterson, who became the most notable boundary pusher on the men’s side of this sport, consistently throwing caution to the wind and throwing his Hurricane jump — five twists inside of three somersaults — before finally being rewarded with a silver medal in 2010. The women’s side has been looking for that sort of push for a while. Li Nina won silver four years ago with a fourtwisting double flip and attempted the same jump in the final Friday. Going first, she wiped out wildly and scored a 46.02. That gave Lassila a better chance of winning the gold even without trying her most difficult jump. But that decision had already been made. “It was all or nothing for us,” she said. The jump looked good in the air, the green stripes sewed onto the inside of her arms and the outside of her pant legs lining up in almost perfect symmetry — an easy way for the judges to see that she’s “penciling” the jump. But in aerials, the jump counts for 50 percent, while the take-off counts for 20 and the landing is the rest. Lasilla wiped out and scored 72.12.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — In a powerful symbol of international sports detente, Russian President Vladimir Putin dropped in on U.S. Olympic headquarters Friday to chat about the Winter Games and the upcoming Russia-U.S. hockey showdown. He even wore a red “Happy Valentine’s Day from Team USA” pin on his lapel. Putin spent about half an hour at USA House in Sochi’s Olympic Park, sitting on a couch talking with U.S. Olympic Committee chairman Larry Probst and CEO Scott Blackmun. From there, he made a stop at Canada House next door. “Putin was very gracious,” Blackmun told The Associated Press. “What I would remember is it sends a strong message about the importance of sport to Russia.” The Russian leader looked relaxed, wearing a dark jacket with an open-collar light blue shirt. He had a glass of red wine as he asked the Americans about their experience in Sochi so far. “We talked about mostly our impression of the games,” Blackmun said. “He was very interested in knowing what we thought about the level of infrastructure, the level of services. ... We complimented him on the great operations so far.” Putin also thanked the U.S. for supporting Sochi’s Olympic bid. Sochi was awarded the games in 2007 after Putin traveled to Guatemala to lead the bid presentation.

White is most chattedabout Olympic athlete Shaun Snowboarder White is the most buzzedabout Olympic athlete on Facebook but figure skating is by far the sport that

attracts the most interest. The social media site said Friday that more than 24 million people have commented on the Olympics during Sochi’s first week, with a total of 48 million posts, comments and “likes.” The most activity was in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. Television programmers have long looked at ratings to conclude that figure skating is the No. 1 Winter Olympic sport. Facebook chatter confirmed it, with skating attracting more online commentary by a margin of more than two to one, said Robert D’Onofrio, a Facebook data editor stationed at the games. Still, Facebook said that of the five most commentedupon athletes, only one was a figure skater. That was Michael Christian Martinez of the Philippines, who finished No. 20 in the men’s free skate on Friday. White, the American snowboarder whose bid for a third straight gold medal in the halfpipe fell short, had the early lead among attention-getting athletes. Besides Martinez, the other most popular athletes so far are Jenny Jones, the British snowboarder; Canadian skier Alex Bilodeau; and American snowboarder Jamie Anderson.

Stoch impressive on large hill; U.S. qualifies 3 KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Normal hill champion Kamil Stoch put himself in a strong position to add the large hill to his Sochi Olympic medal collection after posting the longest jump Friday at 136 meters. Three Americans qualified for the final — Nicholas Alexander of Brattleboro, Vt., Anders Johnson of Park City, Utah, and Nicholas Fairall of Andover, N.H. Peter Frenette of Saranac Lake, N.Y., failed to advance.

Maybe those space age suits weren’t the answer SOCHI, Russia (AP) — They were touted as the fastest speedskating suits in the world. Now the U.S. is dumping the high-tech attire after a dismal start to the Sochi Olympics. Kevin Haley, vice president of innovation for suit developer Under Armour, told The Associated Press on Friday the Americans had received permission to go back to the suits they used while posting impressive results on the fall World Cup circuit and at the U.S. Olympic trials in December. The change begins Saturday with the men’s 1,500 meters, when Shani Davis hopes to make up for a disappointing performance in his first race at Sochi. Under Armour was busy altering the logo on the old suits, so it conforms with International Olympic Committee regulations. “We want to put the athletes in the best possible position when they’re stepping on the ice to be 100 percent confident in their ability to capture a spot on the podium,” Haley said by phone from Baltimore. The change was a stunning reversal after the Americans arrived in Sochi proclaiming they had a suit that would give them a technological edge over rival countries such as the Netherlands. Instead, the Dutch have dominated through the first six races, winning 12 of a possible 18 medals, including four golds. The Americans have yet to finish higher than sev-

The Associated Press

After a strong season on the World Cup circuit, the U.S. speedskating team has had a miserable performance the first week of the Sochi Olympics — and much of the speculation has turned to its new high-tech Under Armour skinsuit developed with help from aerospace and defense giant Lockheed Martin. enth; Davis and female stars Heather Richardson and Brittany Bowe have all been major disappointments. While Haley expressed confidence in the

new suit, saying all the data proved it should produce faster times, he said the company agreed to the change because a few athletes felt it was actually a drag on their times.

“If they have one less thing to be distracted by,” Haley said, “that should give them a little bit of an advantage.” The new skinsuits, developed with help from aerospace and defense giant Lockheed Martin and unveiled just before the Sochi Olympics, had definitely become a major distraction. Even though several coaches and athletes defended the technology, it was clear that U.S. Speedskating needed to change things up to make sure this didn’t become a total bust of a Winter Games. “Morale is down right now,” said Joey Mantia, another of the U.S. skaters in the 1,500. The new suit, known as “Mach 39,” has become a convenient explanation for the American woes, since they were unveiled so late in the game, without giving the skaters a chance to wear them in competition. Even before the Olympics began, the designer of the Dutch suits expressed skepticism about the American claims. Bert van der Tuuk said he even tested some of the elements used in the U.S. suit — rivets, seams, bumps and a diagonal zipper to cut down on drag — and found they provided no significant edge. Others backed the new suits. Haley said the majority of the team wanted to stick with it, but the change was made to make sure everyone was comfortable.

Winter Olympics

British slider seizes skeleton KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Britain’s Lizzy Yarnold won the season’s first race on a technicality. The season’s last race, there was no argument. Yarnold won the Olympic women’s skeleton gold medal Friday night, a victory that puts the 25-year-old unquestionably atop her sport, probably for years to come. Her four-run time was 0.97 seconds faster than silver medalist Noelle PikusPace of Eagle Mountain, Utah, who entered retirement by exorcising the memory of letting a medal slip away in Vancouver four years ago. “It won’t sink in for a few more days, but I’m over the moon,” Yarnold said, as a full moon illuminated part of the Russian night sky. “I’m so proud. I put in all the work for five years and it all worked out.” Yarnold, who also won the World Cup overall title this season, claimed Britain’s first gold at the Sochi Games. Her time was 3 minutes, 52.89 seconds, and the final trip down the track was a mere formality, given that she already had a 0.78-second edge over Pikus-Pace and only needed to avoid a giant mistake. It didn’t happen. The fourth run was like all the others — flawless. She grabbed a British flag, hopped near the finish line, embraced teammate Shelley Rudman and seemed to just never stop smiling. “Lizzy’s been a beautiful bubble of confidence in every one of her races,” said Amy Williams, the 2010 skeleton gold medalist from Britain. “I’m so proud of her that we kept the medal in Great Britain and wrote ourselves into the history books.” Pikus-Pace insisted that this time, she’ll retire happy. Simply being in the Olympic

Yarnold won the gold medal. race was victory enough; Pikus-Pace revealed afterward that she was dealing with concussion-like symptoms for several days before the race and minimized her training time on the advice of doctors. “I felt fine and safe sliding but my vision has been going in and out of being able to focus, which slows my reaction time,” Pikus-Pace said. “It has been an extremely difficult week but my family, coaches, and prayers of many allowed me to come out and compete the best I can given the situation.” Elena Nikitina of Russia won the bronze, another 0.44 seconds off the pace and just 0.04 seconds ahead of Katie Uhlaender of Breckenridge, Colo., who took fourth for her top Olympic finish. And afterward, Uhlaender wasn’t lamenting coming so close. Instead, she picked up

Pikus-Pace’s daughter Lacee, gave her an embrace and sang her teammate’s praises. “I couldn’t be more proud of her,” Uhlaender said. “This is a great last race for us both. Noelle finished fourth last time and now she’s on the podium and I couldn’t be happier for her.” The Lizzy-vs.-Noelle rivalry was back and forth all season, starting with the World Cup opener in Calgary, where Pikus-Pace crossed the line first and was originally announced as the winner. But Yarnold was awarded the victory after race officials said the American used too much tape on the handle of her sled. That decision played a huge role in deciding the World Cup title. From there, Pikus-Pace set her sights on closing out her sliding career with an Olympic medal — which is really the only thing that lured her from retire-

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — It’s been said, cynically, that a runner-up is the first loser, and Alpine skier Ivica Kostelic is rather familiar with the expression. The Croatian has heard it plenty. Doesn’t like it one bit. Especially now that he is the only Olympian to earn a silver medal in the same individual event at three consecutive Winter Games, finishing second to surprise champion Sandro Viletta of Switzerland in the supercombined Friday. “I could be anywhere. I could be in the hospital right now,” Kostelic said, referring to people less fortunate than him around the world. “So anyone who complains about silver or bronze doesn’t have the right to do so.” Instead, it was Viletta who came through when it counted, something he’s not all that used to: In 100 career World Cup races, he has accumulated all of one victory. But after having only the 14th-best time in the morning’s downhill leg, he was second-best in the afternoon’s slalom as the sun slid behind the face of an adjacent mountain. His total time of 2 minutes, 45.20 seconds was 0.34 better than Kostelic. “I know that I can ski fast, and I like this snow,” Viletta said, referring to the mushy conditions brought about by

ment two years ago, especially since a trip to the podium in Vancouver was lost when she made a mistake in Curve 2 of her final run at the 2010 Olympics. “This is a dream come true for myself and my family,” Pikus-Pace said. “Absolutely unbelievable. I stood up there at the start knowing this was my race and I knew I was just going to go for it.” When she crossed the line Friday night, knowing hardware was hers, she flashed a megawatt smile. Retirement, she said, would be about spending time with her family. She couldn’t wait to get started, hopping over the track wall to join her husband and children for hugs and kisses — her first, ever, as an Olympic medalist. Then she waved to fans. Waving goodbye, essenThe Associated Press tially. Yarnold, she’s basically United States' Ted Ligety rests after finishing the slalom portion of the just saying hello. men's supercombined on Friday.

Despite falls, Hanyu captures Olympic gold SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Sometimes an Olympic gold medalist is more survivor than anything else. Yuzuru Hanyu knows the feeling. Not only did Hanyu make it difficult on himself, he thought he lost all chance at the title Friday night with a mediocre free skate at the Sochi Olympics. Instead, thanks to the mistakes of Patrick Chan and others, Hanyu became Japan’s first gold medalist in Olympic men’s figure skating. “Negative feelings were brewing inside of me,” Hanyu said. “It was difficult to keep with the performance with all that in my head. “I thought the gold medal was not in my hands.” It wound up there mainly because his nearly 4-point lead after the short program was enough to overcome his shortcomings in the long. Also the first Asian man to win Olympic gold, Hanyu fell on his opening jump, a quad salchow, and crashed on his third, a triple flip. That left plenty of room for Canada’s Chan to skate through to the top of the podium, but he made three errors in a watereddown program to finish second. “I had that chance and it slipped out of my hands,” Chan said.

Canada has never won the event, either. Kazakhstan’s Denis Ten, the world silver medalist, won bronze in Sochi in a final that was a two-man showdown between Hanyu, 19, and three-time world champion Chan, 23. Few skaters performed close to their peak on a second consecutive night of competition. Most of them appeared fatigued, partic1 ularly at the end of their 4 ⁄2-minute routines. It was one of the sloppiest men’s Olympic programs in memory. Chan skated directly after Hanyu with a chance to do what such renowned Canadian men as Donald Jackson, Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko and Orser could not. But he wasn’t sharp either. “We all had rough skates,” Chan said. “These competitions are about who makes the least mistakes. I had one too many mistakes.” American Jason Brown, 19, of Highland Park, Ill., fell from sixth to ninth, earning no points for a triple loop at the end of his program because of a previous false takeoff on an axel that was counted as a jump. “I went out there and just performed and where I ended up is where I ended up,” Brown The Associated Press said, “but I’m so proud to be in that top 10.” Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan competes in the men’s free skate figure skating Four-time U.S. champion Jeremy Abbott, of Aspen, Colo., rallied from 15th to 12th place. final at the Iceberg Skating Palace on Friday.

Belarus captures two medals in women’s 15K KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Darya Domracheva’s unmatched pace at skiing Friday earned her a second gold medal of the Sochi Olympics, and this time she wasn’t the only Belarusian on the podium. With Nadezhda Skardino taking the bronze in the women’s 15-kilometer individual race, it was the first time two athletes from the EasternEuropean country medaled in the same Winter Games event. “It’s always been my dream to be on one podium with Darya. Now that dream has come true,” Skardino said. Domracheva missed one target — the fourth in her opening round of the standing shooting — but she easily made up the penalty minute for a comfortable victory. Domracheva, who also won the

12.5K pursuit three days ago, finished in 43 minutes, 19.6 seconds — and would still have won even if she had missed another target. It was Domracheva’s third career Olympic medal. She also won bronze in the individual race in Vancouver four years ago. Selina Gasparin of Switzerland shot cleanly and finished 1:15.7 behind to take silver for her country’s first ever medal at a major biathlon championship. Skardino also avoided mistakes and finished 1:38.2 behind. “It’s amazing. I got the info during the race that Nadezhda was second,” Domracheva said. “I wasn’t surprised because she is such a good shooter.” Domracheva wanted to wait for her teammate in the finish area, but she was so far ahead of the field, she got freezing and went to the dressing

temperatures topping 50 degrees, “but I didn’t expect to win.” Christof Innerhofer of Italy was 0.47 behind for the bronze, which he added to his silver from last weekend’s downhill. So at the moment, he alone owns twice as many medals from the 2014 Sochi Games as the entire U.S. Alpine contingent. Seems likely the U.S. ski team would like to have a medal or two of any color right about now. Through four of the 10 races on the schedule, the Americans have only one medal, Julia Mancuso’s super-combined bronze; they had six medals this far into the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, part of their Alpine-leading total of eight. On Friday, Bode Miller was the defending champion in super-combined, having beaten Kostelic four years ago, but he was sixth this time. Ted Ligety won the event in 2006, again ahead of Kostelic, but he was 12th Friday, acknowledging, “To put it simply, I choked.” The super-combined is intended as a measure of overall skill, by forcing skiers to be adept at two types of racing. At the 1936 Olympics, the first with Alpine skiing, the men’s and women’s combined were the only medal events.

room to warm up. “We have a really good team,” Domracheva said. “And the Olympic races are not over yet. I am relaxed now and want to enjoy the next races.” As a junior cross-country skier, Skardino competed for Russia until she was lured by Belarusian biathlon coaches. “I was not getting results in crosscountry and was thinking about giving it up,” Skardino said. “They asked me and I really enjoyed shooting. So competing for Belarus was not a decision against Russia but a decision for biathlon.” Gasparin surprised herself by hitting all 20 targets, a feat she had never before achieved in her career. “That was the first time in my life,” said Gasparin, who is the oldest of three sisters competing in the race.

“Our parents came to Sochi for this race. That gave me extra strength. All five Gasparins were together tonight.” For Gasparin, the silver medal was the crown on her 10-year mission to promote biathlon in Switzerland. She started when the country had only one shooting range with 10 targets. “Now there are four shooting ranges. It took me nearly 10 years to build it up,” said Gasparin, who last December also became her country’s first winner on the biathlon World Cup. Pre-race favorite Tora Berger, the 2010 Olympic champion, was already out of contention after missing three targets in her first two shootings — one in the prone, and two in the standing. The Norwegian finished almost four minutes off the lead.

Swiss star has double golds KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — After a season blighted by an ankle injury, Dario Cologna is finally having his day in the sun. Wearing short sleeves and sunglasses in the spring-like weather, the Swiss crosscountry skier won his second gold medal of the Olympics on Friday with a dominant performance in the 15-kilometer classical-style race. Cologna is a three-time overall World Cup winner, but had ankle surgery in November and only returned to competition in January. “It’s amazing. I couldn’t believe the first gold medal, after being injured, and now the second,” Cologna said. “The first gold was emotional after coming back from injury, the second is unbelievable.” Cologna also won the opening 30-kilometer skiathlon race on Sunday, but had a disappointing freestyle sprint where he fell twice in his quarterfinal and was knocked out. On Friday, no one could match his speed over the last half of the race and he beat silver-medalist Johan Olsson of Sweden by 28.5 seconds. Another Swede, Daniel Richardsson, took bronze after his strong finish put him 0.2 seconds ahead of Iivo Niskanen of Finland — to the delight of Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who were in attendance. Overall World Cup leader Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway had a disappointing race, finishing 1:37.7 behind the winner.

Oregon schools tops in baseball

College/Community Sports Acker rewarded for prediction THE WORLD

Oregon State will start the season ranked No. 2, and Oregon is No. 6 ■

CORVALLIS (AP) — Oregon State coach Pat Casey is unimpressed with the Beavers’ preseason ranking. In what has become something of a mantra for Casey, he opened the season by saying the polls don’t matter. One has the perennially ranked Beavers at No. 2, the team’s highest ranking ever. “I’ll say the same thing I said last year,” Casey said. “I’m not impressed at all.” About 40 miles down the road, Oregon is ranked as high as No. 6 in the national polls, and coach George Horton is saying essentially the same thing: The Ducks haven’t proven anything yet. “We’ll just have to let our baseball speak for itself,” Horton said. Yep, it’s college baseball season in the state of Oregon, which again has two teams grabbing a share of the national spotlight. The Beavers and the Ducks were picked to finish first and second, respectively, in the Pac-12 Conference, which has always been strong in the sport. League teams have won 28 NCAA baseball titles, more than any other conference. UCLA, last season’s College World Series champion, was picked by the league’s coaches to finish third this year. “I like our team,” Casey said. “We have to stay healthy, and we obviously have to play at a very high level in order to compete in our conference — and with the people we play out of

In what has become something of a mantra for Casey, he opened the season by saying the polls don't matter. One has the perennially ranked Beavers at No. 2, the team's highest ranking ever. conference. So I do like our team, but I think they would tell you we’ve got a long way to go.” The popularity of college baseball has seen a dramatic upswing in Oregon — despite the rain — for the past decade, building since the then-underdog Beavers became just the fifth college program to win back-toback College World Series titles in 2006 and 2007. Casey, who is embarking on his 20th season in Corvallis, has taken the team to the postseason for the past five years, a school record. The Beavers went 52-13 last season, advancing to the College World Series for the fifth time in school history and fourth under Casey. Oregon State went 24-6 in the Pac-12 for the team’s third conference title since Casey took over. While the Beavers have lost key contributors in Matt Boyd, shortstop Tyler Smith and catcher Jake Rodriguez this season, they return pitchers Ben Wetzler and Andrew Moore, as well as outfielder Michael Conforto. The Ducks jumped into the fray in 2009 when Oregon reinstated its baseball program after a 28-year hiatus. Oregon made a splash by hiring Horton, a two-time national coach of the year who led Cal State Fullerton to Omaha six times and the NCAA title in 2004.

After holding open tryouts for the team in his first season, the Ducks surprisingly went all the way to the postseason the very next year. But so far the College World Series has eluded them. Last season Oregon won 48 games, the most in school history, and finished second in the Pac-12. But the nationally seeded Ducks fell to Rice in their regional series. “We haven’t finished yet,” Horton told reporters at the team’s preseason media gathering. “We’ve had expectation years where we fumbled. The last two years we thought we had a competitive ballclub, won our share of one- and two-run games and put ourselves in position to host regionals and super regionals and had national seeds. But we’ve squandered opportunities, so to speak we’ve left the bases loaded.” The Ducks have lost a few of the stars from last season’s team: First baseman Ryon Healy and pitcher Jimmie Sherfy graduated, while pitcher Cole Irvin underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery. But they return strong position players Scott Heineman and Tyler Baumgartner. Both teams open their seasons this weekend. The Beavers play in the Husker Classic in Tempe, Ariz., while the Ducks visit Hawaii

for a four-game series. The two teams will play each other five times after splitting last season’s series 2-2. Ultimately, it will be a whole combination of things that will determine either team’s success. Which is why Casey doesn’t have a whole lot of faith in preseason polls. “Team chemistry’s always one of the most important things. We have enough people there. We have the people if they choose to be strong leaders and they choose to have chemistry and hang with each other, that we’ll have the same type of bond (as last season),” Casey said. “Winning fixes a lot of problems. When you come out and you have a lot of success early you feel good. It’s when you’re struggling that real leadership and chemistry comes to the top.”

Carolyn Acker of Coos Bay splashed her way through a rainy morning last Saturday to claim the overall championship of the South Coast Running Club’s 19th annual Prediction Run and Walk. This event rewards pace management rather than speed. Participants are ranked according to how close they come to their predicted time for a 5-mile run or 3-mile walk. Watches or other time pieces are not allowed on the course. Acker missed her predicted time by just 5 seconds. Second place went to last year’s champion, Tom Hull of Coos Bay (16 seconds). Third was Paul Potter of Florence (19 seconds). The brides-

maids for the awards were Todd Landsberg of Coos Bay and Doug Veysey of Myrtle Point, who tied for fourth (31 seconds). The top three predictors won gift certificates valued at $40, $25 and $15. The day’s fastest time was turned in by Aaron Bennion of Coos Bay, who blazed through the rain in a time of 33:05. Veysey finished second in 35:51, followed by Tiffany Crutchfield of Coos Bay in 38:20. Bennion and Crutchfield were 1:15 and 1:37 off their predicted times, finishing 12th and 16th, respectively. A total of 35 runners and walkers braved the rain to compete in the event. Complete results are listed in today’s Community Scoreboard.

The business of love Florists, chocolatiers crank out gifts to keep up with Cupid’s demand BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World

Reds and pinks may consume Valentine’s Day, but local businesses are only seeing green. The weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day are florist Julie Reed’s busiest of the year. On Saturday, she’ll finally be able to crash after a whirlwind Friday of delivering bouquets across the South Coast from her shop, Ocean Breeze Flowers and Gifts, in North Bend. This week, pink and red ribbons, vases, packing boxes and heart details packed Reed’s store. Her fridges were stuffed with roses and other flowers, as well as greens to fill out bouquets. “Valentine’s Day is a florist’s busiest holiday,” she said. “There’s a lot of prep work in the weeks in advance getting everything ready, because you just have a couple of days — Thursday and Friday — to do everything.” Reed ordered at least 1,000 roses and hundreds of other stems to get ready for the influx of orders. She also had to stock up on extra vases, boxes and greens. In a typical week, she would only order around 50 roses. According to the National Retail Federation’s 2014 Valentine’s Day spending survey, the average person will spend more than $130 on candy, cards, gifts, dinner and more, up slightly from last year. In total, Americans are expected to dole out $17.3 billion during this season of love. More than half will send greeting cards, while nearly 49 percent will get sweets for their sweetie. Cranberry Sweets general manager Jackie Schaiff said the chocolatier’s Valentine’s season begins with making novelty items like molded candies, roses and chocolate


Set goals to further profitability Q: Why is it important to set business goals? A: Goals focus attention on achieving desirable outcomes. They are powerful. In business, one desirable outcome would be profitability. Profitability does not happen without making sales plus managing expenses. Employees prefer to know what management DOWN TO expects them to accomplish and goals provide that direction. The human brain has amazing ARLENE abilities SOTO to solve problems and goals channel brain power toward finding solutions. Whether business goals are to set company direction or provide motivation, they should be specific, measurable, achievable and timely. Let’s go back to the profitability goal mentioned previously. A company goal: “XYZ Company will be profitable” is not very specific. How profitable? Are there enough customers to achieve that? By when will profitability be reached? How will you know the company is profitable? A better way to state that goal is: XYZ Company will attain a 10 percent net profit margin by the end of 2014 based on sales of 100,000 units. Now it’s possible to plan action steps to reach that goal and adjust the progress toward attaining the goal if necessary. Once in a while, management will want to change the course of an organization by motivating employees to reach higher. Jim Collins and Jerry Porras, in their book “Built To Last” talk about big, hairy, audacious goals, or BHAGs. One of my favorite examples of a BHAG occurred May 25, 1961, when then President John F. Kennedy announced the ambitious goal of sending an American safely to the moon before the end of the decade. That goal was achieved July 20, 1969. In 1961 no one knew exactly how to make that happen but the goal inspired many to work toward a desirable outcome. The brain power of many was channeled toward finding a solution. Goals that have been achieved are an opportunity for celebration. Successful companies set goals that support the business mission and recognize employees for a job well done. Even a sole proprietor can benefit from goal setting and celebrating accomplishments. What desirable outcomes would you like to achieve? Now is the time to create goals to make those outcomes happen.

A worker places freshly dipped chocolate covered cherries on paper to dry Tuesday afternoon at the Cranberry Sweets & More factory in Coos Bay.

Penny Brandon greets customers at Cranberry Sweets & More’s factory and store in Coos Bay on Tuesday afternoon. The store offers many specials on chocolates and candy for holidays such as Valentine’s Day. cards. The company starts ordering non-perishable supplies in December. The store’s physical transition from Christmas to Valentine’s starts at the turn of the new year.

“It’s not our busiest holiday but it’s growing,” she said. “Every year it builds and builds.” Cranberry Sweets averages around 100 to 150 orders for Valentine’s Day

and orders 3,000 pounds of chocolate to keep up. While Valentine’s Day is big — Easter is bigger. The spring holiday quadruples the amount of candy the company produces for

Valentine’s Day. Red roses have always been the big seller on Cupid’s holiday; that continues to hold true. “But I think when men call in they order red roses, whereas if they come in the store, they see all the different things they can get and they change their mind,” Reed said. “I think sometimes women prefer to get something different, like mixed bouquets.” The NRF survey found, though, that only one-third of Americans will send flowers this year. More and more couples enjoy a night on the town. Nationwide, Valentine’s dinner dates represent 20 percent of total spending for this year’s holiday. “It’s really crazy,” Reed said. “It’s fun, but it’s crazy.” Reporter Chelsea Davis can be reached at 541-2691222, ext. 239, or by email at Follow her on Twitter: @ChelseaLeeDavis.

Farr’s celebrates reopening in Coquille COQUILLE — Farr’s True Value Hardware celebrated the grand reopening of its Coquille store last Saturday. Lisa Farr, Jay Farr and Chris Liga, backed by the rest of the Coquille store staff, were on hand for the “chain cutting.” A free pizza lunch and thousands of dollars worth of prizes were given away. Farr’s began 98 years ago in Coquille not far from the current store at 220 N. Central Blvd.

Higher gasoline prices are on the way N EW YO R K ( A P) — Drivers, here’s the bad news: You’ll be paying more for gasoline in the coming weeks. The good news: You’ll likely pay less than last year. Or the year before, or the year before that.

The price of gasoline held steady into early February, but an increase is almost inevitable this time of year. Pump prices have gone up an average 31 cents per gallon in February over the pa s t t h re e yea rs. A n d although this year’s rise

might not reach the heights of years past, there are reasons for drivers in some re g i o n s — l i ke t h e Northeast — to worry about a painful spike. The price of crude oil has risen 8 percent over the past month, to $100 per barrel.

Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison demonstrates expanded options for gender identification at her company’s headquarters Wednesday. Harrison, who helped engineer the project, plans to switch her identifier to “Trans Woman.”

New gender options for Facebook users MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) — With a click of a cursor, Jay Brown in Cheverly, Md., went from Male to Trans Male. A few states away, Debon Garrigues of Asheville, N.C., switched from Male to Neutral. In San Francisco, Marilyn Roxie, formerly Female, chose three: Androgynous, Transgender and Genderqueer. Across the country Thursday, news swept through the transgender community that social media giant Facebook had added a customizable option with about 50 different terms people can use to identify their gender as well as three preferred pronoun choices: him, her or them. And one after another, they made their

changes in a quiet revolution of sorts. “For me, this is about much more than a button on a monitor,” Garrigues said. “This encourages people to think outside the binary spectrum. It means I don’t have to try to fit in the wrong boxes.” For many others, the change went unnoticed — or too far. Facebook said the changes, shared with The Associated Press before the launch, initially cover the company’s 159 million monthly users in the U.S. and are aimed at giving people more choices in how they describe themselves, such as androgynous, bigender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.

Right at Home: Spring’s rosy glow BY KIM COOK The Associated Press This spring, pinks are popping up all over home decor — the softer versions soothing and nurturing, the bright ones bouncy and vivacious. Warm pink light can be flattering, so designers have long employed tricks like painting lampshade interiors in those hues or switching regular bulbs for soft pink ones. “Pink’s such a fun color to play around with. I see it two ways — dusty, light and classic, or vibrant, ‘statement’ and sharp,” says Boston-based designer Taniya Nayak. “The former adds subtle whispers of elegance, while the latter turns up the volume in a space.” Eddie Ross, East Coast editor for Better Homes & Gardens, is another fan. “Pink is back, and it’s all grown up. Paired with stronger hues like navy, chocolate or gray, pink looks sophisticated and surprising,” he says. Ross suggests several ways to incorporate the color for different effects: “When you cover a sofa or chair in a light pink, it acts like a neutral. Swap out throw pillows for a completely different look. Light pink bedding looks great with just about any skin tone. Light pink linen mats in simple white frames with black and white photos look crisp.” His favorite pink paint shades include Devine Color’s Devine Poodle — “great on dining room chairs in a lustrous high gloss”; Benjamin Moore’s subtle

This spring, pink is popping up all over home decor - the softer versions soothing and nurturing, the brighter hues bouncy and vivacious.

Adding in a few pink accessories freshens a great room or living room for spring. A pink pouf is a practical piece with flair. Affinity Proposal for walls; Farrow & Ball’s Blushes — “a strong pink that would be stunning on a ceiling paired with cream and gray.” Valspar’s Rosario Ridge and Universe Quartz Pink are two others to consider. Sherwin-Williams’ Spun Sugar and Malted Milk are as tasty-looking as their names, as are Peach Parfait and Fruit Shake from Benjamin-Moore. CB2’s Vapor chair is Lucite-tinged pink; acrylic’s a strong trend in furniture this season, so this piece

gives extra style bang for the buck. And the retailer’s City Slicker table resembles a big chunk of neon pink bubblegum; a fun piece like this is a great way to play with the color. San Francisco designer Tineke Triggs adds a deep pink desk to a home office, or a crushed berry ceiling to a bedroom. She pairs them with other bold colors like crisp white and egg yolk, or soft tans and grays. Combine pink accessories with contemporary pieces, or add a hit of sur-

prise in a roomful of rustic, traditional or industrial elements. Pink looks great next to reflective and textured materials such as mirrors, metallics and velvets, but also alongside linen, burlap, weathered pine, rattan. And don’t be afraid to shop the kids’ furniture stores: Pottery Barn Kids has a pretty pink Moroccan floor pouf and a smart pink metal side table that would add punch to a den or master bedroom. Land of Nod’s got a playful rag rug, a preppy blush-and-cream striped

flatweave, and a sophisticated, hand-tufted floral rug in pastel pink. West Elm’s spring collection includes some interesting geometricprinted, crewel-stitched or hand-blocked throw pillows

in guava and bergamot. Lamps Plus stocks some pink lighting that includes Robert Abbey’s rectangular Schiaparelli Pink ceramic table lamp with a Lucite base, and OVO’s glass lamp in elegant fuchsia. Crate & Barrel’s Clara chair is covered in a gentle watercolor floral that brings springy gardens to mind.

Rule changes tighten reverse mortgage eligibility THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Reverse mortgages have become increasingly popular in recent years, as cashstrapped seniors seek ways to keep pace with rising expenses - not to mention cope with the pummeling their retirement savings took during the Great Recession. But the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) noticed that borrowers increasingly have been opting to withdraw most or all of their home equity at closing, leaving little or nothing for future needs. Consequently, by mid-2012 nearly 10 percent of reverse mortgage holders were in default and at risk of foreclosure because they couldn’t pay their taxes

and insurance. That’s why Congress authorized HUD to tighten FHA reverse mortgage requirements in order to: encourage homeowners to tap their equity more slowly; better ensure that borrowers can afford their loan’s fees and other financial obligations; and strengthen the mortgage insurance fund from which loans are drawn. Here are the key changes: Most reverse mortgage borrowers can now withdraw no more than 60 percent of their total loan during the first year. Previously, borrowers could tap the entire amount on day one - a recipe for future financial disaster for those with limited means.

The first-year limit may be waived for certain homeowners whose “mandatory obligations” (e.g., upfront insurance premiums, loan origination fees, delinquent federal debt, etc.) exceed the 60 percent amount; but they’ll have to pay a higher upfront mortgage insurance premium - 2.5 percent of the home’s appraised value instead of the normal 0.5 percent. (Note: Credit card debt isn’t considered a mandatory obligation, so those with significant credit card debt may not be able to withdraw enough to pay off their debt.) Generally, borrowers can take the money either as a lump sum at closing (with a fixed-rate loan), or as an

ongoing line of credit or payments monthly (adjustable rate loan). However, lump-sum payments are now subject to the 60 percent mandatory obligations test, so to withdraw more than that you’ll have to go the line-of-credit route, at least for the first year; after that, you can tap the remaining balance if you wish. Under previous rules, almost anyone with sizeable home equity could take out a reverse mortgage. Now, potential borrowers must undergo a detailed financial assessment to ensure they’ll be able to meet future tax and insurance obligations. Lenders are required to review the borrower’s credit

history. They also must analyze all income from earnings, pensions, IRAs, 401(k) plans or Social Security, and weigh it against the borrower’s likely living expenses, including other outstanding debts. Those who come up short (i.e., are more likely to default) may be required to set aside money from their reverse mortgage to cover future obligations - thereby lowering the amount of equity they’d be able to tap. The new regulations also reduce the maximum amount of home equity that can be borrowed against - 10 to 15 percent less than before, on average. Generally, the older you are, the more equity you have

and the lower the interest rate, the more you’ll be able to borrow. Note: The age component of this calculation is based on the youngest party listed on the loan. Because reverse mortgages are so complicated, potential borrowers are required to consult an HUDapproved counselor before being allowed to apply. Do preliminary research at helpful sites sponsored by HUD (, the Financial Consumer Protection Bureau ( and AARP ( Also check with an accountant, financial planner or lawyer specializing in elder law to make sure a reverse mortgage is right for you.

New home? Tips for getting to know the garden BY DEAN FOSDICK The Associated Press Americans are a restless bunch. They change locations with a frequency that would tire a migrating songbird. But there is more to moving day than unpacking boxes; there’s also learning to care for that garden inherited with the new home. If you were thinking ahead, you asked for an inventory of the plants and accessories that came with the house. “There’s no problem with asking owners for a list of landscape items and for an explanation about the plantings,” said Shirley French, an agent with the Woodstock, Va., office of Funkhouser Real Estate Group. “Usually, the owners are more than happy to give you a list. In fact, if they know the purchasers are interested, that will make for good feelings on both sides.” Gardening priorities are determined mostly by the seasons. You won’t be mowing the lawn in February, although you might be

combing the seed catalogs. But where to start with a newly purchased property? Michael Becker, president of Estate Gardeners Inc. in Omaha, Neb., suggests that putting safety first. “Check out the dangers,” said Becker, a spokesman for Planet, the Professional Landcare Network that certifies green industry professionals. “Are the retaining walls stable? Are any trees leaning or diseased with dead branches? “Assess the hardscape,” Becker said. “Is anything heaving, creating tripping hazards? Examine the drainage around the house. More often than not, it isn’t correct and may be damaging the structure. Bring in some professionals to help sort things out.” As for plantings, be patient with the perennials. “Go through the seasonal changes,” Becker said. “Learn what things look like in your yard. Determine if it’s aesthetically what you want, or if it’s so high-maintenance you won’t have the time to care for it. Most perennials need pruning and

deadheading.” Other things to consider when dealing with an unfamiliar landscape: ■ Make note of the average frost dates. Do soil tests. Map the yard for sun and shade. “If you live in the city and all you have is a porch or a patio to work with, where is all that water going to go that you’ll be putting on plants?” asked Josh Kane, president and head designer at Kane Landscapes Inc. in Sterling, Va. “Also, where do you get the water? You’ll have to figure out how to care for everything.” ■ Water fixtures. “Look for care instructions when dealing with special features,” Kane said. “A lot of people get put off or are scared of things like koi ponds, pools and fountains that require startups, mainThe Associated Press tenance and attention during A new home owner’s pre-built Sunshine GardenHouse made from a kit that he added to the seasons.” his yard, to greatly extend the growing season in the cool coastal climate of Whidbey Island, ■ Don’t try to do every- in Langley, Wash.

The dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning BY SUSAN HANSEN UNL Extension

In the winter months, the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning sharply rises. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and tasteless. It is produced by the incomplete combustion of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels. Household appliances fueled

Remember the drafty old houses that have natural air conditioning year-round and the curtains blow even when the windows are shut? The bad news is that they are not very energy efficient. The good news is that the risk of carbon monoxide decreases because there is more ventilation. Symptoms of carbon

with natural gas, oil, kerosene or wood may produce carbon monoxide. Because you cannot see, taste or smell carbon monoxide, it can poison or kill its victims without the victim suspecting a thing. The dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning increases when there is less ventilation.

Season for the optimist In a sure sign of spring, I got my first seed catalog just before Christmas. And a dozen more in the week after. It’s tough to think seriously about gardening when the wind howls, the snow blows and you spend your days slipper-sliding on the walks and the streets. (On one memorable morning, I slipper-slided right into another car — smudged her quarter-panel but ripped the bumper right off my car. If I’d been in the pickup, it would have been a completely different story. Its bumper is chromed steel, not painted vinyl.) But gardening is exactly what the eternal optimists among us are thinking about right now. Count me among them. Last season’s crop was only so-so. A cool spring that seemed to drag on forever set back everything by a good month, then that was followed by blazing heat. No transition for my little green-growies, and they never recovered. The tomatoes and cukes were pretty punk last year; the potatoes were really the only good crop. I don’t know what happened to the onions, a bulb usually so prolific I’m often eating the last of the previous year’s crop as the next one is coming on. They looked beautiful through the summer, but by the time I stuck my fork into the bed for the harvest last fall, nearly all had vanished. It’s a mystery. Some weekend afternoon during the next couple of blustery weeks I’ll sit down with my trusty cup of cocoa and a snuggly blanket and pour through all those seed catalogs. I’ll order my usual potatoes (thinking Yukon Gold this time; I’ve been on Kennebec for the past two seasons, but I miss my goldies) and cucumbers. I’ll have to check my seed supply, but I think I need green beans, too. The strawberries I’ve been trying to get restarted since their bed died out three years ago finally seem to have taken hold again, but I may order a couple of dozen more sets just in case. I gave up on raspberries and spaded up the bed last season, so I’m thinking of moving my canna lilies to their semi-shady spot. Now that I consider it, that shade may have had something to

Joy sedums and aren’t a bit interested in the ribbon grass or the English ivy, but bunnies attack just-sprouted annuals as though they’re starved for salad. Maybe after a winter's hibernation under the deck, they are. I’ve had some success with cosmos and marigolds if I can keep them alive long enough to develop adult leaves. Perhaps they’re less tasty then … or maybe it’s simply because by June there are more succulent veggies to nibble. Anyway, I’m thinking of ordering flower seeds, planting them, then covering them for a few weeks with the chicken-wire row covers I made over the winter. Maybe that will work. Because I really miss summer flowers. Send your questions to: HouseWorks, P.O. Box 81609, Lincoln, NE 68501, or email:

Have the furnace checked periodically - ideally each year - by a professional. Look at the color of the gas burner flames and pilot lights. A yellow-colored flame indicates the fuel is not burning efficiently and could be releasing a higher-thanusual amount of carbon monoxide. Common sense will help tremendously.

feeling symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, there could be dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your home. Leave the house immediately. Develop an evacuation plan - this plan is also helpful to have in case of fire. Call the fire department, local utility company or local emergency medical services. Call from outside your home or at a neighbor’s home. If the carbon monoxide detector sounds but you or a family member do not have symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, caution still needs to be taken. Ventilate the home by turning on fans and opening doors and windows. Turn off any combustion appliances immediately. Call the local utility company to find the source of carbon monoxide.

Thank you for helping Mary m e before Hunt time runs out. — Dorothy H., Oregon Dear Dorothy: The way I see this you have two choices: 1) You can leave the ring to your first-born, which is a kind of traditional way that heirlooms are passed down to the next generation or 2) Sell the ring now and divide the proceeds equally among your heirs. If I were you I would go with option No. 2. I predict that once they hear your decision, there will be a sudden change of attitude to preclude you carrying through with a sale. Dear Mary: You suggest that I save at least three months worth of my expenses in a savings account for an emergency. The problem is that I will have to pay income taxes on the interest I earn on that money. Do you have any other suggestions that may serve the same purpose without my having to pay taxes to cover an emergency? Debbie K., Colorado Dear Debbie: Not wanting to earn interest because you will be taxed on the interest is like saying you don’t want to earn a paycheck because you’ll have to pay taxes on it. The only difference is that you have to work for the paycheck, but you can earn interest in your sleep. Let’s say your emergency fund holds $10,000. These days, you’d be lucky to earn 2 percent interest in a savings account. But let’s say you can. In one year, you will earn about $200 interest. If you are in the 28 percent tax bracket, you will pay $56 of the $200 in taxes. But so what? The reason for the account in the first place is to keep you afloat during a time of financial stress. Besides, you get to keep $144 of the interest. I don’t know about you, but I’ll pay $56 to earn $144 any day. So should you. Dear Mary: Recently, I was trying to look up an address online, and I stumbled across a website that offers background checks. I looked up myself and found an incorrect address that I’ve never lived at, but curiously, it’s the same incorrect address that shows on my credit report. How is it legal for this site to sell background checks? It is a total invasion of our privacy. Do you know how these websites get our information, and is there anything we can do to get it removed from the web? Thank you. — Jen K., Pennsylvania Dear Jen: Don’t assume everything on the Internet is legal. I don’t know about the site you found, but a lot of data gathering does not break any laws. Some states sell information from drivers’ licenses to marketing firms. Credit bureaus sell your information to banks and credit card companies. Lots of information about you is in the public record. Your name, address and phone number are in countless phone books. Your insurance providers submit your information to data gathering companies. The best you can do is to opt out whenever given the choice and then keep a close eye on your credit report. Dispute incorrect information immediately, then follow up to make sure it is corrected or removed. Your credit report is where any irregularities will show up.
