Five murders among heavy 2013 caseload BY THOMAS MORIARTY The World
COOS BAY — It was a busy, busy year for the Coos Bay Police Department. According to Chief Gary McCullough, in 2013 officers took just fewer than 28,000 calls, resulting in a little more than 4,000 case numbers being assigned. In his annual report to the Coos Bay City Council on Tuesday night, McCullough said that each officer
in his department investigated an average of 229 of those cases over the course of the year. Most of those cases, including serious crimes like burglaries and robberies, were investigated and closed by officers on patrol assignments. “The majority of identity thefts anymore are Internet-related,” said McCullough, who added that most of those prosecutions are handled by federal agencies. Only certain local crimes,
McCullough said, were severe enough to be added to the caseload of the department’s two detectives. The two officers assigned to the department’s investigations unit, Detective Sgt. Eric Schwenninger and Detective Randy Sparks, investigated five murders across the county as part of the Coos County Major Crimes Team. In addition to the major crimes team, the department currently has four officers serving on the Emergency Response Team — the
county’s version of SWAT — and two more on the county’s crash investigation team. Another officer is now assigned to the county’s new Forensic Evidence Collection Team. One of the department’s two captains, Cal Mitts, took command of the South Coast Interagency Narcotics Team in late 2012. McCullough said the department is currently receiving some grant funding from Mitts’ participation in the multi-agency drug task force.
It’s also getting some help from the Coos Bay School District in paying Senior Officer Mark Wheeling’s salary as the district’s school resource officer. But McCullough said that means he’s limited in what patrol functions he can employ Wheeling for. The chief said that of the positions the department has funding for, one officer post and a dispatcher job are currently un-filled. SEE CASELOAD | A8

DEQ meeting March 18 COOS BAY — An upcoming Oregon Department of Environmental Quality meeting will deal with Jordan Cove Energy Project’s air quality permit application. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. March 18, in the Red Lion Hotel conference room,1313 N.Bayshore Drive. Jordan Cove has applied for an air contaminant discharge permit from DEQ. The permit would regulate emis-
sions from the terminal and power plant, including greenhouse gases, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter. The permits would require the facility to monitor pollutants using approved monitoring practices and standards. After the meeting,DEQ will draft the permits, hold a hearing and ask for public comments on the draft permits.

COQUILLE — Some of the same questions remained unanswered. But, the Coos County commissioners voted Wednesday to allow Commissioner John Sweet and county counsel Josh Soper to represent the county as details are ironed out in a Community Enhancement Plan. The plan is a proposal to collect community service fees from the Jordan Cove Energy Project during the liquefied natural gas export facility’s first several
years, when Jordan Cove could qualify for a long-term property tax abatement. David Koch, chief executive officer for the International Port of Coos Bay; and Steve Jansen, county assessor; briefed commissioners on the plan Wednesday morning. Koch asked for the commissioners’ blessing in moving forward as the plan is further developed and refined. “I would like some affirmation so we’re not all wasting our time,” Koch said. The county is one of four

COQUILLE — Even with all of the rain, the county is in a drought. So much that it may adopt a declaration of emergency within the next month, said Mike Murphy, program manager for Coos County Emergency Management. Murphy asked Coos County commissioners at Tuesday’s meeting to consider the declaration. He said he made the decision following a recent webinar with other state emergency management personnel. Emergency management leaders statewide now are conducting monthly webinars, discussing the drought issue, he said. “This amount of rain isn’t going to carry us through summer,” he said. Even if this area sees 150 percent of its expected rainfall between now and May, it will still be behind, he said. The average rainfall for the Medford area usually is 10.14 inches from Oct. 1 to Feb. 3. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the area had only 2.48 inches, or 24 percent of its average. Rainfall at the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in North Bend was also lacking, said Frederic Bunnag, with the National Weather Service office in Medford. He said it received 21.7 inches from Sept. 1 to now. It should have received 42.45 inches, he said. This month has been a bit of a break for Coos County, Bunnag said. About 7.31 inches have fallen so far, compared to the normal 4.59 inches, he said. “We’ll be getting more rain, but it doesn’t look like it’ll help,” Bunnag said. “There will be some form of drought, but I’m not sure it’ll be severe or not.” Bunnag said many factors went into a county’s decision to declare an emergency drought condition, including concerns on agriculture. Coos County has agriculture, he said, but of more concern likely would be forest fires. Murphy said Coos County was vulnerable to drought because it’s dependent on surface water, much of the rain would flow downstream to the ocean. There aren’t any snow pack or reservoirs here as there are in other counties, he said.

Mosquito management plan expected soon Meetings TODAY
Public comment sought on plan ■
THE WORLD BANDON — An integrated approach involving improved tidal flow and utilizing larvicides, when necessary, is being developed to avoid a repeat of last summer’s mosquito infestation in and around the Bandon Marsh. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working closely with the Coos County Public Health Department, Coos County commissioners, members of Congress and experts in the field of mosquito control to develop an Integrated Marsh Management approach for Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, according to a press release from USFWS. The approach is expected to reduce mosquito breeding
pools on the Ni-les’tun Unit of the refuge. “Reducing the amount of mosquitoes at Bandon Marsh Refuge and at the same time improving fish and wildlife habitat is a priority,” said Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex project leader Roy Lowe. “The service is funding the cost of both the habitat work and mosquito control on refuge lands.” In addition to reducing the amount of mosquito breeding areas, the Integrated Marsh Management approach will improve the tidally driven hydrology of the Ni-les’tun Unit of the refuge, benefiting wildlife, including migratory ducks and shorebirds and anadromous fish such as juvenile coho salmon. The plan calls for increasing the amount of tidal channels in the marsh, which will allow for better tidal flushing, Lowe said. Tidal flushing happens with high
tide each day and refreshes the saltwater in the marsh. Mosquito larvae require stagnant pools to complete their development, so increased tidal flushing will prevent the mosquito larvae from becoming flying adults. Habitat modification is the primary long-term plan for managing mosquitoes at the refuge and the emphasis of the Integrated Marsh Management approach. However, the use of pesticides for mosquito control on refuge lands also will be proposed because the habitat work cannot be completed in time to prevent the expected fly-offs of mosquitoes later this spring. To manage mosquitoes in the short term, the service is proposing to use larvicides that they believe have minimal negative environmental effects to kill mosquitoes in their aquatic immature life stages before they can become flying adults.
“Coos County Public Health will be working with the service to plan for appropriate mosquito control at Bandon Marsh Refuge,” said Coos County Public Health Administrator Nikki Zogg. “The county will be conducting mosquito monitoring and control on refuge lands aimed at protecting human and wildlife health from threats associated with mosquitoes,” she added. The public will have the opportunity to review and comment on the Integrated Marsh Management approach, which includes a draft Mosquito Pesticide Environmental Assessment and the draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment for Phase 4 Tidal Marsh Restoration for Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, before they are final. The draft documents will be available in the coming weeks. The service invites
the public to review and comment on the draft documents and encourages active participation. To be added to the mailing list to receive the documents, call the refuge office at 541-867-4550 or email email@example.com. In 2011, Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge completed the restoration of 420 acres of historic tidal marsh. “This tidal marsh restoration is the largest ever in Oregon and is already substantially benefiting fish and wildlife,” Lowe said. “However, an unanticipated byproduct of the restoration was the large population increase of the salt marsh mosquito (Aedes dorsalis). No other salt marsh restoration effort in Oregon has experienced this issue before.” For more information on mosquitoes on the refuge,visit http://1.usa.gov/1fCnq33 or Coos County Public Health: http://bit.ly/1fCntvX.
Moving Reedsport parade back to US 101 will cost $1,500 BY STEVE LINDSLEY The World
REEDSPORT — It’s related to traffic control. A committee organizing the 2014 Memorial Day Parade and other events in Reedsport is planning on the parade returning, in part, to U.S. Highway 101. That’s going to cost organizers $1,500 ... a fee for services from the Oregon Department of
Transportation. Dan Latham, a public information officer for the ODOT regional office in Roseburg said the fee is traffic-related. “In the past, the parade was held on Winchester Avenue or Old Town, off of Highway 101,” Latham said in an email to The Umpqua Post. “This year the organizers want to hold the parade on Highway 101. Since the organizers don’t have the
Jim Wells of the Reedsport Lions Club is helping to facilitate the organizational meetings said the fee came as a surprise. “To my knowledge, we never paid any fees to ODOT for the parade plan, ever.” Wells also said in an email. “It has been for at least three years that the parade was centered downtown, but for many more years it started at the high school and went down 101 to 10th across to Winchester Avenue to East Railroad to the War Memorial. “The Lions Club has always coordinated and developed the program for the War Memorial at Hahn Stay busy on the Park ... Being a Lion, I have weekends. Find out been in on the planning for where all the latest that ceremony for many years.” art and music is. There was only an impromptu parade last year to go with the ceremony at See Inside Saturday Hahn Park. “Last year I was Chairman equipment, personnel or expertise to provide traffic control for the parade, ODOT would have to do that. The $1,500 estimate is the cost of setting up VMS (variable message signs), arrow boards, detour signs and trucks as well as the staff hours.” ODOT will take traffic down to just one or two lanes on Highway 101 as the parade is happening Monday, May 26.

of the Memorial Service,” Wells said. “When the chamber decided not to take part in the Memorial Day Celebration, volunteers stepped up to have an “unofficial” parade on our own. A veteran named Reno (Stone) took it upon himself and organized a rather impromptu parade. No one filed any work with ODOT but with of the cooperation (Reedsport City Manager) Jonathan Wright and Sgt. Tom Beck they brought it off. There was some flack from ODOT as a result.” The organzing committee is hoping to raise some extra funds for the ODOT fee, on top of raising money for a patriotic concert, a ceremony at Veterans Cemetery, the parade and the ceremony at Hahn Park. The organizing committee is slated to meet March 12 at noon at the Reedsport Community Center.

School mascot bill is right approach Our view Communiction and respect will resolve the issue of Native Americans as school mascots.
What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OK, show of hands. Who out there are Ducks? All right, how about Beavers? If you’re from around here, likely you’re a Bulldog, or maybe a Pirate. If you live in Reedsport, you’re likely an Brave. That could be a problem. But a bill working its way through the Oregon Legislature this month could address the controversial issue of school mascots and respect for ethnic heritage. Under this bill, schools could keep Native American mascots under certain conditions, including approval from an appropriate tribe and the Board of Education. We think that’s the com-
monsense approach to this issue because it calls for discussion and communication between schools and Native Americans who rightfully deserve some say in how they’re depicted. Additionally, this bill is not the sledge-hammer approach used when the state Board of Education ruled in 2012 that all Native American mascots and symbolism would be retired by July 2017. Think about what a mascot is. Schools choose an image to represent its pride. That pride may be based in heritage (University of Massachusetts
“Minutemen”), or a quality to aspire to (University of Hawaii “Rainbow Warriors”). Sometimes that pride is depicted by a feisty animal (University of Michigan “Wolverines”), or mythic characters (Drexel University “Dragons”). Admittedly, not all mascots make sense. University of California, Santa Cruz’ “Banana slug” defies logic, for example. In most cases, schools want mascots to be an inspirational image. Few schools would choose to align themselves with an image held in disdain. At the same time, Native Americans have a right to be
depicted fairly and accurately. Cartoonish characterizations misrepresent and disrespect the history and heritage of North America’s first inhabitants. So, this law says that if a school wants to call itself “Warriors” or “Braves” or “Indians,” fine. Sit down with some real Indians and get a lesson on who they are. Understand what the image really represents. The result could be a new appreciation, and a mascot recast into something truly inspirational. We hope the bill passes and Gov. John Kitzhaber signs it.
The pope gives hope to all “Have you learned nothing from Pope Francis?” An hour into a discussion about “renewal” in the Catholic Church — centered on a book by that name by Anne Hendershott and Christopher White — this was the last question asked from the audience. The female audience member then repeated a line from Pope Francis’ impromptu planeride press conference last summer: “Who am I to judge?” His Holiness was pointing to the fact that only God can know the innermost workings of the human heart. Another audience member wanted to bypass her question, saying, “That wasn’t a question, that was an insult.” But it might just have been the most important question of the night. The event was open-door and was decently advertised. And yet, somehow during the course of the discussion, which frequently dealt with joy and love, at least one person in the audience saw nothing but a door being closed. I immediately thought of my friend Austen Ivereigh, who was the first to remind me what we all KATHRYN know when we stop to LOPEZ think about it: As television viewers, as radio Columnist listeners, as readers, we tend to discount factual points or well-reasoned arguments in favor of gut feelings. When we hear the word “civil” in the context of communications, we do ourselves a disservice and get off easy if we think it simply means being “nice.” It’s got to be about seeing the people in your audience — most of whom you’ll never personally meet — as people, as children of our Creator, as brothers and sisters. That means there’s got to be love, even in the face of extreme disagreement. I travel a decent amount and am forever popping into Catholic churches. And I rarely find an empty one anymore. There are always people hiding in the back, right up in the front, on their knees, giving thanks, lighting a candle, praying for help, seeking peace. People are feeling welcome. Come on in, because there is love, support, forgiveness and hope inside. Earlier this month, Pope Francis met with the leaders of the University of Notre Dame. He talked about the history of the school, its mission and the “essential” need for the “uncompromising witness of Catholic universities to the Church’s moral teaching and the defense of her freedom.” Pope Francis is walking Catholics through an examination of conscience. Are we authentically living lives of Christian witness, knowing God, loving God and reaching out to him in his people, in the most forgotten and weakest among us? Pope Francis opens doors to a faith that offers attractive, compelling answers to questions deep in the hearts of men and women. There’s a common good here: Knowing we’re made for something more and that we have responsibilities toward one another and our freedoms; this makes us leaders in the renewal of our lives, families, communities, institutions, country and culture. The cover story is the first pope from the Americas who is capturing the attention of the world with his embrace of the sick, the wounded, the lost and forgotten. The inside story is that he offers a hardened world proposals about a kind of life that upholds human dignity and well-being. And people, even the cynical media, are listening. The pivotal moments in Christian history have everything to do with “yes.” Leading with this — in service, sacrifice, and communications — benefits everyone. Many are cheering on Pope Francis with a “Yes!” The story isn’t this one man, but the source of his joy and its meaning for our lives.

Letters to the Editor Obamacare not in our best interests As per the front page article in Saturday, Feb. 8, The World, we find out that Obamacare will soon be adversely affecting Bay Area Hospital through cuts to Medicare. This shouldn’t surprise anyone since it was known shortly after this law was passed that part of the scheme to finance Obamacare would be done by cutting Medicare to the tune of about $716 billion over the next 10 years. The Office of the Actuary estimated that
about 15 percent of existing hospitals that accept Medicare wouldn’t be able to operate profitably due to Obamacare rules and regulations and could be possibly forced to close their doors. This was just one of the many adverse effects of the Obamacare law that Americans should be concerned about. Similar to the old USSR that had only one party rule, the Democrats by themselves took Hillarycare off the shelf and dusted it off, didn’t bother to read it first (including our very own congressmen, Peter DeFazio, Ron Wyden and Jeff
Merkley), and then passed it and sent it on to our Democrat president, Barack Hussein Obama, for signing into law. Now it is clear that the two major promises made to sell it, “if you like your doctor, if you like your plan, you can keep your doctor and keep your plan, PERIOD!” and “the average family will see a savings of $2,500 a year in their health care costs,” were bald faced lies. And this past week the CBO estimated that about 2 1/2 million jobs will be destroyed by 2017 due to provisions of Obamacare, which will also affect Social Security
and Medicare as there will be that number fewer workers paying into those “entitlements.” Understand that Obama has now changed the law (illegally?) over 28 times so that more of the various damaging effects of this law won’t confront the American public until the 2014 elections are over. That’s just typical Obama, doing what’s best for him and his party politically but not what’s best for Americans. Keith Comstock Myrtle Point
If she runs, gender won’t be an issue There she is on the cover of Time magazine. And look, on that bizarre cover of The New York Times Magazine, there she is again. She’s everywhere, and the story line is pretty much the same: Hillary Clinton is a pretty good bet to be the Democratic presidential nominee. If she runs. That’s a big “if,” but it’s hard to imagine that a woman who has been one of the most prominent members of her generation since her fabled college commencement address — a woman who has been secretary of state, senator from an important political state and first lady — will decline a presidential campaign and a chance to grab the brass ring of history merely because she’s weary of travel, or that she will decline a chance to preside over the Rose Garden because she wants to cultivate her own garden in Chappaqua. A campaign almost certainly will be even more irresistible to her because women still haven’t won their share of power in American politics. It is not only that the country never has elected a female president; it’s also that even today only a fifth of the Senate is female, and that only 30 women in history have entered the chamber through election. But in the end — indeed, in the beginning — Clinton’s gender is very likely not going to be a principal, or even an incidental, factor in the 2016 presidential race,and not just because Golda Meir, Indira Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher and Angela Merkel have preceded her with strong performances as national leaders. The real reason has two parts and has nothing to do with Clinton’s being a woman and everything to do with her creden-
tials and background. First, political figures from New York such as Martin Van Buren, Millard Fillmore, G r o v e r Cleveland and DAVID Franklin Delano R o o s e v e l t SHRIBMAN almost always Columnist are natural candidates for president, even if, like Thomas E. Dewey and Nelson Rockefeller, they do not prevail or, like Mario M. Cuomo, they decline to run. Second, throughout our history the office of secretary of state has been a natural stepping-stone for the White House. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Martin Van Buren and James Buchanan all were secretaries of state before they became president, and a number of other secretaries of state, including Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, Lewis Cass and Alexander M. Haig Jr., have run for president. Of all those luminaries, only Van Buren and Clinton claim both of these launching pads before entering a presidential campaign. (Charles Evans Hughes was the GOP presidential nominee exactly a century before Clinton’s putative campaign, but the former governor of New York became secretary of state after his presidential campaign, not before.) Already some Democrats worry the Clinton rush threatens to short-circuit the nomination process in favor of dynastic sucseems which cession, incongruous in a political party that considers itself the represen-
tative of the common people. At the same time, the phrase “Clinton fatigue” is in the air again. Each presidential race is different — trying to graft precedents or even insights from earlier presidential campaigns is risky business, no matter how many times this typist has attempted it — but one rule does seem to apply: Presidential nominations aren’t inevitable. For proof, visit the Edmund S. Muskie Archives at Bates College in chilly Lewiston, Maine, where the papers of the 38th president of the United States do not reside. A codicil to that iron law: Sometimes presidential candidates who seem inevitable nominees still have a hard time winning the nomination. The best recent example comes from the 1984 campaign of former Vice President Walter F. Mondale, who assembled perhaps the most impressive array of endorsements in modern history only to lose the primary here in New Hampshire. “I thought I might be going through the Muskie thing again,” says James A.Johnson,a veteran of the Muskie campaign who ran the Mondale campaign. “We shifted from winning easily to grinding delegates on the last day.” Even so, the friends of Clinton are mighty busy — and mighty visible, so much so that Republicans in New Hampshire already have concluded that, as one operative put it pointedly last week, “subtlety is not in their playbook.” Nor in their tactical operations. This winter the “super PAC” Priorities USA, a vital part of the Obama political operation, began to mobilize on behalf of the woman whose candidacy it
crushed eight years ago. Meanwhile, groups around the country — and especially in Iowa, site of the first caucuses, and here in New Hampshire, site of the first primary, usually six days later — already are reaching out to activists and supporters. Last month the Iowa affiliate of the Ready for Hillary organization assembled in Des Moines, and in the crowd were state party chairman Scott Brennan and veteran organizers such as Teresa Vilmain. The New Hampshire affiliate of Ready for Hillary met shortly before the holidays with Craig Smith, a White House political director in the Clinton administration. “We’re not the campaign and we’re not going to be the campaign, but we’re building lists and making contacts,” says Terry Shumaker, co-chairman of Bill Clinton’s 1992 and 1996 campaigns here and a major figure in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 primary campaign. “There’s an amazing amount of pent-up demand — to do something,to help her decide to run,to provide an outlet for people who are looking ahead to 2016.” Clinton lost the 2008 Iowa caucuses to Obama, but staged a comeback here to win the New Hampshire primary — and she capped it off with perhaps her greatest political speech. “Over the last week,” she said,“I listened to you and, in the process, I found my own voice.” But now, about two years before the next New Hampshire primary, political professionals are waiting to hear her voice. In the meantime, here is my maxim for our time: It can’t be over if it hasn’t even begun. David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Post-Gazette.

State Veteran dad has no desire to start a second family DEAR ABBY: I’m a single mom in a serious relationship with a divorced man who has children of his own. Between us, we have seven, ranging in age from 7 to 17. I’m in my early 30s; he’s in his early 50s. My dilemma: I’m interested in having another child if we get married. He definitely isn’t. Is it unreasonable for me to want to add to this already large potential blended family? I love the idea of experiencing motherhood again with a little more experience and age under my belt, and I’d love to share that intimacy with him. While DEAR he likes the abstract possibility of “our” child, he says he feels too old now and he wouldn’t be able to be the kind of JEANNE father he PHILLIPS would want to be. If neither of us had kids of our own, this would be a dealbreaker for me, but how do I know if my maternal longings are just the last, painful tickings of my biological clock, or a real desire that I’ll end up resenting him for if I ignore it and we stay together? — IS SEVEN ENOUGH? DEAR IS SEVEN E N O U G H ? : Because your boyfriend is in his 50s and has made it clear that he isn’t interested in becoming a father again, I think you should count your many blessings and consider that seven is a lucky number. D E A R A B B Y : My godmother passed away in January 2011. My godfather, “Jim,” remarried last year. I am still mourning her loss and have not been able to get myself to call and speak to Jim, even though I did send him a congratulatory wedding card. I love him. Jim is a wonderful, kind, attractive man. I knew it wouldn’t be long before another woman would take an interest in him or he’d find love again. My siblings have tried to get me to make contact with him, but I’m still not ready to accept that he has moved on with another woman. Please advise me. — CAN’T FACE IT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CAN’T FACE IT: I am sorry for your loss, and I’m sure your godmother will always live in your heart. However, if you love your godfather, you should be glad that he has been able to move forward in his life. That he was open to finding love again speaks volumes about the quality of the marriage he shared with your godmother. Of course seeing Jim with someone else won’t be easy for you, but it is sad that you would sacrifice the special relationship you have with him because you are reluctant to face reality. For both of your sakes, I hope you’ll reconsider. If you do, you may find that you like the new lady in his life. D E A R A B B Y : Is it ever appropriate for a diner to lick his/her fingers in public, like when eating finger food or barbecue? It drives me nuts! I equate it to a cat cleaning itself. When I try to get the person in question to use a napkin, I’m looked at as if I’ve lost my mind! At the very least, our hands are covered with germs, and who wants to stick them in their mouth? Yecch. — GROSSED OUT IN OHIO DEAR GROSSED OUT: I think it depends upon the circumstances in which the food is being served. If someone is eating canapes at a cocktail party, licking the fingers is a no-no. And most barbecue joints provide moist towelettes to their patrons. On the other hand, Col. Sanders used to call his fried chicken “finger lickin’ good.” At a picnic or informal gathering, it’s purr-fectly acceptable to lick one’s fingers, and I confess this tabby has probably done it, so I’m not going to cast aspersions.

Lawmakers to consider deal on 911 tax SALEM (AP) — The Oregon Legislature may be on the verge of resolving a longstanding conflict over how to tax prepaid cellphones to pay for emergency services. The House Revenue Committee is scheduled to vote today on legislation backed by phone providers and 911 centers. Much of the funding for Oregon’s 911 centers comes from a charge of 75 cents per month for every landline and standard cellphone line, but state lawyers have disagreed about whether the tax applies to the prepaid cellphones. Seeking to make it explicit, state lawmakers have struggled for years to agree on who
should pay it — cellphone companies or their customers — and how it should be collected. Under the compromise, phone companies would pay the tax for the first nine months of next year. Starting in October, consumers would pay 75 cents each time they purchase prepaid phone credits. “The 911 system is underfunded, and it’s exciting that we’re nearing the possibility of bringing those (phones) into the system,” said Rep. Tobias Read, a Beaverton Democrat who has been involved in brokering the compromise. Oregon has about 60 cen-
ters that take 911 calls and dispatch emergency crews. Their funding varies widely, but on average they get about 25 percent of their funding from the 911 tax, said Hasina Squires, a lobbyist for the Special Districts Association of Oregon, which represents the centers. The 911 centers worry that growing adoption of prepaid phones would erode their revenue if lawmakers didn’t assess the tax. The Legislative Revenue Office is still crunching numbers on how much money the changes will raise, but Squires said she expects it to be in the low millions of dollars per budget year, distributed statewide.
GRANTS PASS (AP) — The state of Oregon has banned local measures regulating genetically modified crops, but that hasn’t stopped a group in Josephine County. The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports the Josephine County Clerk’s Office verified Tuesday that backers turned in enough signatures for an initiative banning GMO crops in Josephine County. Co-petitioner Mary Middleton says backers don’t think the state should try to stifle the voice of the people, and will leave it to the courts to decide whether the state has the power to do that. The measure will appear on the May ballot.
Arrow wounds Central Oregon dog; boy cited SISTERS (AP) — A 2year-old dog named Stewie ran off from his owners’ home in Sisters and returned Sunday with an arrow in his thigh. Auto repairman Terry Rollins tells The Bulletin newspaper of Bend that Stewie had $2,000 worth of surgery and other treatment and is lucky the arrow didn’t hit his heart. It left scratches on his 1 belly. The surgery took 3 ⁄2 hours. Stewie is a Pekingesedachshund mix. He was well enough Tuesday to resume going to the shop with his owner. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said a juvenile boy had been cited for
STATE D I G E S T animal abuse, and the case has been sent to the prosecutor’s office.
Lawmaker planning initiated privacymeasure SALEM (AP) — An Oregon lawmaker plans an initiated measure to limit the powers of Oregon law enforcement officers to pry into personal cellphone, Internet and other data. Republican Sen. Larry George tells The Oregonian the measure will be based on one that failed in the current legislative session. It would have prohibited local and state officers from obtaining information on cellphone location, Internet browsing, email and social media accounts, TV-watching history or data from electronic devices without a warrant, consent or urgent circumstances.
Off-duty Portland officer arrested for DUI PORTLAND (AP) — Portland police say an offduty officer has been arrested for investigation of DUI and reckless driving. Sgt. Pete Simpson says Kent Scott was arrested Tuesday night after a traffic stop in southeast Portland. The 53-year-old Scott is a 22-year veteran of the Portland department who has been assigned to the transit police division.
Alvin Paul Stibitz Dec. 8, 1943 - Feb. 9, 2014
A celebration of life for Alvin Paul Stibitz, 70, will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the First Christian Church in Myrtle Point. A procession will follow giving Alvin “one last ride” in his beloved Willys Jeep pickup which will be driven by his two grandsons, Jake and Zach. The procession will include some of his favorite vehicles, a few vintage cars, log trucks and a dump truck or two. The route will travel by Myrtle Point High School, the Coos County Logging Museum, over to Main Street (Spruce Street) and then out to the Dora Cemetery with a short graveside service. Alvin was born Dec. 8, 1943, in Myrtle Point, to Paul Jacob Stibitz and Myrle Elda (Weekly) Stibitz. He passed away Feb. 9, 2014, in Coquille. “Dempsey,” as his dad Paul called him, was nicknamed after the famous boxer Jack Dempsey. He was a born tinkerer. He loved working on all sorts of vehicles and gadgets starting at a very young age. He lived his entire life in Myrtle Point and attended Spruce Street School, Myrtle Crest Junior High and Myrtle Point High School. He was a graduate of the Class of 1963. In junior high he excelled in sports especially football and basketball. On the basketball court he was the tallest, yet the youngest, player on the junior high team. In high school “Big Al,” as he was called by his teammates was a force to be reckoned with. He participated in football, basketball and track and
field. He was a member of the 1962 state co-champion football team. He also was a high school shot put record holder in track and field, a record he still holds to this day. After high school Alvin went to work in the woods for a gypo logger, followed by logging for Georgia-Pacific. He then took a mill job at Georgia-Pacific working at Norply in Norway doing millwright work. He also did work out on the log pond, bringing in logs to the mill. During the early ‘70s timber boom he started driving log truck for Haley and Haley out of Coquille. Lastly in 1978 he went to work for the County Road Coos Department first working on the paving crew and then later driving dump truck and trailer until his retirement from there Dec. 31, 2010. Alvin always loved to joke with everyone and was nicknamed by his county road department co-workers the “pun”isher. It was even written on the front bumper of his county dump truck. He was the master of one-liners and jokes that were sometimes good and sometimes not so good. He kept his four older sisters and nieces giggling constantly during family gatherings. He loved to talk about old time logging and the history of Coos County, especially the Myrtle Point area. He was well known for his turquoise green 1963 Willys Jeep pickup he drove around town for almost 50 years. It was his pride and joy from the time he bought it until the day he passed away. Alvin married Marsha Lee Butler Feb. 29, 1964, in Coos Bay. Their first daughter, Darcelle Dawn, was born in 1968 and their second daughter, Allison Lee, was born in 1979. His two
beloved grandsons, Jacob Paul (20) and Zachary Wade (18), are the two special boys who he loved to the moon and back. Alvin is survived by his daughters, Darcy Arden and husband, Kurt of Myrtle Point and Allison Williams and husband, Jason of Sutherlin; grandsons, Jacob Paul LaCasse of Myrtle Point and Zachary Wade LaCasse of Redmond; sisters, Beverly McGilvra and husband, Paul of West Linn, Rosemary Christensen and husband, Richard of Cape Fair, Mo., Linda Meyer and husband, Charles of Myrtle Point and June Shrum of Myrtle Point; as well as numerous nieces and nephews, great-and great-great-nieces and nephews with several cousins. He was a proud descendent of the pioneer Weekly family who settled in Coos County in the late 1800s. He was preceded in death by his father, Paul Jacob Stibitz; mother, Myrle Elda Weekly Stibitz; infant sister, Helen; maternal grandparents, Isaac Mattson Weekly and Susie Katherine Widby Weekly; uncles, Oliver, Harold, Ervin and Warren Weekly; aunt, Elsie Weekly Fasola; paternal grandparents, Jacob Paul Stibitz and Blanch Mae Brown Stibitz; uncle, Albert Stibitz; aunts, Lottie Stibitz Waterman and Majorie Stibitz Weekly; nephew, Dale Lee Shrum. In lieu of flowers the family suggests that donations be made Alvin’s name to the Coos County Logging Museum in Myrtle Point and/or the Myrtle Point High School Bobcat Booster Club, in care of Leon Brown. Arrangements are under the direction of Myrtle Grove Funeral Service, Myrtle Point, 541-396-3158. Sign the guestbook at

Students said the collapse came unexpectedly while the service was under way, starting with a rumble in the building. Tori Hodge, 18, told the newspaper there was an initial scene of panic before calm prevailed. “We heard a huge rumble and the floor collapsed and people collapsed with it,” she said. “Everbody heard it. The floor started crumbling and waving. People started falling through the ceiling, just like The Associated Press you’d see in a movie.” There was no immediate Emergency responders, members of Freedom Baptist Church, and report on what caused the Myrick community members in rural Jones County, Miss. gather near an floor collapse. ambulance outside the Freedom Baptist Church on Wednesday night Davis praised the leaders after a second floor youth room collapsed onto a first floor kitchen.

Did you know? Did you know that Charlie Chaplin starred in a movie about dentistry? It’s true! Although the first film with a dentist came out in 1902, Charlie Chaplin starred in the comedy Laughing Gas in 1914, where he played the Tramp as a dental assistant. Later, almost all of the stars of early comedy films played dentists including Laurel & Hardy, Harold Lloyd, and the Three Stooges. We’ve come a long way!

MILPITAS, Calif. (AP) — Family members say the owner of a San Francisco Bay Area gas station where the lone winning ticket for the $425 million Powerball jackpot was sold is en route to India and won’t learn he has won $1 million until after he lands. Parmeet Singh, store owner Kulwinder Singh’s son, said his father was set to land in New Delhi around 11 a.m. Thursday.
LAUREL, Miss. (AP) — The second floor of an activity center at a rural Mississippi church collapsed during an evening youth service, sending about 70 people crashing down and injuring 35 of them, survivors and authorities said Thursday. The injuries were not lifethreatening, an official said. Pastor Tommy Davis at Freedom Baptist Church in Myrick told The Chronicle in Laurel that the floor at the activity center collapsed as dozens of youths held a worship service Wednesday evening. Witnesses described an ominoussounding rumble before the floor crashed down. “In the middle of the student service, the floor — which is a second-story floor — gave way, causing about 70 students to fall,” Davis said. “But it’s got to be said that no one was seriously injured, no one was trapped. God’s hand was certainly taking care of the kids who were in that building.” Survivors reported brief moments of panic before calm was restored.

READING, Pa. (AP) — Orange cones and flashing police lights confronted Ricardo Nieves as he rounded a bend on the way to his mother’s house. Before he knew what was going on, Nieves said a man working for a government contractor stepped in front of his car and forced him to turn into a parking lot. There, a woman repeatedly tried to question him about his driving habits and asked for a mouth swab that would detect the presence of illegal or prescription drugs in his system. Nieves refused. Then he sued, contending his rights were violated. His Dec. 13 experience has been repeated thousands of times in cities around the country as the federal govern-
ment tries to figure out how many of the nation’s motorists are driving drunk or high. U.S. transportation officials call the National Roadside Survey of Alcohol and Drugged Driving, which has been conducted five times since 1973, a vital tool for monitoring the safety of America’s roadways.But some motorists and civil liberties advocates contend the government’s methods are intrusive and even unconstitutional. Some police departments have refused to partner on the survey or regretted their decision to do so in the wake of public outcry, while in Tennessee, legislation that would ban law enforcement from helping out on the survey unanimously cleared the state Senate last month.

Activists call for action against anti-gay laws DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — Last month, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni met in his office with a team of U.S.-based rights activists concerned about legislation that would impose life sentences for some homosexual acts. South African retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu joined them by phone, pointing out similarities between Uganda’s AntiHomosexuality Bill and racist laws enforced under South Africa’s former apartheid government. The anti-gay bills are overwhelmingly supported by the general public in both Uganda and Nigeria, providing opportunities to win political points for two presidents eyeing re-election. But international gay rights activists also blame donor countries, including the United States, which favor behind-the-scenes diplomacy intended to avoid a backlash that might come from more forceful engagement.
Pussy Riot video shows clashes with police SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Russian punk band Pussy Riot is ending its stay in the Olympic city of Sochi by posting a video criticizing the Winter Games and President Vladimir Putin. The band has been filming in Sochi since Sunday and has had violent run-ins with authorities. On Wednesday, Cossack militia attacked the group with horsewhips as they tried to perform under an Olympic sign. Pussy Riot on Thursday presented a video called “Putin will teach you how to love the motherland.” The video posted on YouTube features a song and footage of the band’s protests. Members told a news conference their treatment in Sochi is symptomatic of stifling dissent in Russia. Two band members spent nearly two years in prison on charges of hooliganism for their protest in Moscow’s main cathedral in 2012.
Pakistan strikes militant hideouts PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani air force jets bombed militant hideouts in the country’s volatile northwest, officials said Thursday, after government efforts to negotiate a peace deal with the Pakistani Taliban broke down earlier this week. A Pakistani military official and two intelligence officers said 15 suspected militants were believed to have been killed in the airstrikes. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has favored peace talks over military action to end the bloodshed in the northwest. Those efforts made limited progress this month when a governmentappointed committee met with representatives nominated by the militants.
UAE lets passengers go after smoke probe DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Emirati security authorities have allowed all passengers on an Etihad Airways flight that had suspicious lavatory fires to leave after several were temporarily detained for questioning by police, the airline said Thursday. Passengers on board the Boeing 777-300ER flight from Melbourne, Australia, to the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi said Tuesday’s fires sent smoke into the cabin and appeared to have been deliberately set.

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Fearing that a call for a truce was a ruse, protesters tossed firebombs and advanced upon police lines Thursday in Ukraine’s embattled capital. Government snipers shot back and the almostmedieval melee that ensued left at least 70 people dead and hundreds injured. Video footage on Ukrainian television showed shocking scenes Thursday of protesters being cut down by gunfire, lying on the pavement as comrades rushed to their aid. Trying to protect themselves with shields, teams of protesters carried bodies away on sheets of plastic or on planks of wood. Protesters were also seen leading policemen with their hands held high around the sprawling protest camp in central K iev. Ukraine’s Interior ministry says 67 police were captured in all. It was not clear how they were taken. An opposition lawmaker said they were being held in Kiev’s occupied city hall. President Viktor
The Associated Press
Anti-government protesters clash with riot police in Kiev's Independence Square, the epicenter of the country's current unrest in Ukraine on Thursday. Ukraine's protest leaders and the president they aim to oust called a truce Wednesday, just hours after the military raised fears of a widespread crackdown with a vow to defeat "terrorists" responsible for seizing weapons and burning down buildings. Yanukovych and the opposition protesters who demand his resignation are locked in an epic battle over the identity of Ukraine, a nation of 46 million that has divided loyalties between Russia and the West. Parts of the country — mostly in its western
cities — are in open revolt against Yanukovych’s central government, while many in eastern Ukraine favor strong ties with Russia, their former Soviet ruler. At least 99 people have died this week in the clashes in Kiev, a sharp reversal in
three months of mostly peaceful protests. Now neither side appears willing to compromise, with the opposition insisting on Yanukovych’s resignation and an early election and the president apparently prepared to fight until the end.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Their backs stooped,dozens of elderly North and South Koreans separated for six decades reunited Thursday, weeping and embracing in a rush of words and emotion. The reunions come during a rare period of detente between the rival Koreas and are all the more poignant because the participants will part again in a few days, likely forever. About 80 South Koreans traveled through falling snow with their families to North Korea’s Diamond Mountain resort to meet children, brothers, sisters, spouses and other relatives. Seoul had said about 180 North Koreans were expected. Meetings — the first in more than three years because of high tensions — are a vivid reminder that despite 60 years of animosity, misunderstanding, threats and occasional artillery exchanges, the world’s most heavily armed border divides a single people.

CEP Koch: Still more work to be done Continued from Page A1 sponsors needed to approve the plan and Jordan Cove project would need to proceed with its request for the 15-year extended tax abatement. The other sponsors are the port and the cities of North Bend and Coos Bay. Among questions raised at the meeting: the nonprofit corporations that have been proposed to oversee fund distribution. Whether they would be subject to state open records and open meeting laws was unknown, Koch said. Another question that remained unanswered was how the plan would play out in the event that any of the entities would want to float revenue bonds. Koch said there was “still more work to be done within
a workgroup,” and hoped the four sponsors could work together. Sweet has been working with the group and sees potential in keeping funds local. “Why should the state decide what we do with our money?” Sweet asked. Commissioner Bob Main was opposed to the idea. “The county can be really short-changed by this plan,” Main said. The proposed 20-year plan could give the county 9.25 percent of the fees, or an additional $1.1 million during the first four years while the plant is under construction. It could go up to about $2 million at the start of the plant’s operations, year five. During the remaining years it could receive up to $2.4 million.

Son of notorious child killer charged in homicide clerk said they did not enter pleas and have yet to be assigned attorneys. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week. Weaver’s father, Ward Weaver III, was convicted of aggravated murder in 2004, two years after the bodies of Ashley Pond and Miranda Gaddis were found in his backyard. Before the discovery, the search for the 12-year-old Pond and 13year-old Gaddis riveted Oregon for months and put the missing girls on the cover of People magazine. It was Francis Weaver, then 19, who finally ended the mystery by calling emergency dispatchers to report that his girlfriend accused Ward Weaver of raping her, and his father had privately admitted to killing the girls.

CANBY (AP) — His grandfather sits on California’s death row, and his father avoided a death sentence by pleading guilty to killing two Oregon girls. Now Francis Weaver, 31, is one of three men charged with murder in what Canby police describe as a drug deal gone bad. Police allege Weaver and co-conspirators sought to steal drugs last weekend from a Grants Pass man whose car contained 15 pounds of marijuana. The victim, 43-year-old Edward Spangler, was shot in the face and shoulder. Weaver and the other men, 27-year-old Michael A. Orren and 32-year-old Shannon Bettencourt, were arraigned Tuesday in an Oregon City court. A court

SWOCC men get big win Lakers still have hope for region title after beating Lane ■
■ North Bend and Marshfield are among favorites in state meet
year in school, Hixenbaugh hopes to catch the eye of coaches at colleges with women’s programs. “I want to make a good impression,” she said. The host Braves only have five wrestlers in the tournament. But Marchione hopes Cameron Winfield (160 pounds) and Egan Glover (170) both can advance to state. For Gold Beach, Taylor Bright (106 pounds) and Derek Carl (170) are top seeds, while Matt McKay (132) and Thomas Keeler (195) are seeded second. For Myrtle Point, Eli Officer is the top seed at 126 pounds. Trevor Fullerton (118), Riley Train (145), Jared Chamley (182) and Isaac Godfrey (285) all are seeded second. Lowell is the favorite in the team race. The top two individuals in each weight class advance to state.
The Southwestern Oregon Community College men’s basketball team has a chance to tie for the NWAACC South Region title after beating Lane 93-75 in Eugene on Wednesday. The Lakers host league-leading Portland in the regular-season finale Saturday, when a win would mean a share of the league title and a spot in the NWAACC tournament. “It’s the last game of the year, playing for a co-championship,” SWOCC coach Trevor Hoppe said. “That’s pretty exciting.” SWOCC also is playing to avoid the possibility of a one-game, loser-out tiebreaker contest. The top four teams advance to the final and SWOCC is tied for second with Clackamas, a game in front of both Mount Hood and Chemeketa. Those three teams play the region’s bottom three teams Saturday and are likely to win, leaving the possibility of a tie for the final spot in the tournament. SWOCC improved its chances with the big road win over the Titans. The two teams were tied late in the first half. “We went on a 6-0 run right before halftime,” Hoppe said. “We took that momentum and it carried over to the second half. Our defense picked up, which helped our offense. That got us running.” Dexter Williams Jr. had 30 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks and five assists for the Lakers. “Dexter was focused and locked in and ready to go and getting to the basket,” Hoppe said. Anthony Heintzman shot 6for-8 from 3-point range and scored 20 points.

North Bend is the defending champion, Henley is the Bulldogs’ longtime rival, Marshfield is the new school to the classification, Sweet Home is the young upstart squad and St. Mary’s is the brand new program. Friday and Saturday those teams battle for the trophies in the Class 4A-3A-2A-1A state meet at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham. The meet might not be as close as last year, when North Bend edged Henley and Phoenix by a single point for the title, but it should be compelling with all the teams in contention — a group that also includes La Grande from eastern Oregon. The preliminaries will be held Friday, starting at 6:30 p.m. All scoring comes Saturday in the finals, which start at 6:45 p.m. and include the top six swimmers from each event Friday. Admission each day is $8 for adults and $5 for students, and the finals also can be watched online at www.osaa.tv for a daily fee of $9.95 or monthly fee of $14.95, which would extend through the state basketball tournaments. On paper, St. Mary’s is the favorite based on results from the four district meets last weekend. The Crusaders feature Alyse Darnall, who swam for Phoenix until she was able to get a team for her own school this year, as well as Grace Jovanovic and sisters Olivia and Andrea Dow. Between them, the group is favored to place well in two relays and most of the individual events. SEE SWIMMING | B6

Hixenbaugh gambles on herself Reedsport’s junior wrestler hopes to reach state tournament ■
BY JOHN GUNTHER The World
Last year, Reedsport’s Kaylynn Hixenbaugh was the girls state wrestling champion for her weight class. This year, she has her eyes on a bigger goal. Hixenbaugh, a junior, didn’t even try to qualify for the girls state meet because she wants to wrestle with the top boys in the state meet at Portland. “I’m pretty excited about it,” she said. Hixenbaugh is seeded second at 113 pounds in the Class 2A-1A District 2 meet, which the Braves host Friday and Saturday, a tournament that also includes Gold Beach and Myrtle Point.
It’s one of three regional meets involving South Coast schools this weekend. Marshfield and North Bend compete in a Class 4A regional at Phoenix High School that includes the Far West and Skyline leagues. Coquille is in a Class 3A regional at Lakeview High School on Saturday. Reedsport coach Guy Marchione has high hopes for Hixenbaugh. “Unless something bad happens, she should be going to state,” Marchione said. Last year, Hixenbaugh placed third in the district meet, nudged out of a trip to state by Glendale’s Ricky Esparza, who went on to place second in Portland. This year, Esparza is seeded first in the weight class. He and Hixenbaugh haven’t met on the mat this year, but she has beaten the two boys seeded behind her. “I really want a finals match with (Esparza),” she said. Though she still has another

Canada skip Jennifer Jones delivers the rock to sweepers Jill Officer, left, and Dawn McEwen during the gold medal game against Sweden today.
Canada claims curling gold SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Canada won the gold medal in women’s Olympic curling today, beating Sweden 6-3 and avenging a loss to the Swedes in the final at the Vancouver Games in 2010. The Canadians broke up a scrappy, error-strewn game with two steal points in the ninth end to go ahead 63 and then defended out the 10th. Canadian skip Jennifer Jones’ rink went through the tournament undefeated, winning 11 straight games. It’s the first gold for Canada’s women curlers in the country’s second most popular sport since 1998, when curling returned to the Olympic program. Sweden’s women had won gold at the last two Olympics. Britain beat Switzerland 6-5 earlier Thursday to win the bronze medal. The winning moment came when Jones released her first rock in the last end. Before it bumped a Swedish stone out of the house, and clinched the win, the skip was on her knees with her hands on her face at the other end of the ice. She then bounded down the ice
and, with a joyous whoop, huddled with her teammates and jumped up and down. The championship means Canada’s women curlers have finally come out of the shadow of their men’s teams, who have won gold at the last two Olympics. But this victory wasn’t pretty. Canada won the teams’ roundrobin game 9-3 in eight ends but the championship game was much closer, with tension high and the pressure clearly getting to a previously unruffled Canadian team. Save for a rare clanging cow bell, the atmosphere in a three-quarterfull Ice Cube Curling Center — where there was a large Canadian presence — was subdued with three scoreless ends out of the first seven hardly making for gripping viewing. Having won world and multiple Canadian titles, Jones was looking to fill her resume with Olympic gold. She had been the top female curler in the tournament, and she needed to be at her best in the final as teammates Jill
Officer and Kaitlyn Lawes produced poor displays early on. Sweden squandered a great chance for four points — and a 5-3 lead — in the fifth end when Maria Prytz failed to make a clean double takeout and was fortunate in the end to claim two points to tie the score at 3-3. “Terrible end,” Jones uttered to Lawes. After blanks in the sixth and seventh ends, the tension apparently got to Jones when she came up short with a draw to the button in her last shot. Canada got the point after a measurement but Sweden had an opportunity to counter. In the crucial ninth end, Canada had four rocks in the house surrounding a sole Swedish stone. Maria Prytz, shooting last for the Swedes, could have picked up two points but her shot bumped into one of her own rocks and handed Canada two steals. The last end was a formality — and Canada’s women ended a 16-year wait for gold.

Sports Syracuse suffers first hoops loss THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Olivier Hanlan and Patrick Heckmann hit 3-pointers in overtime, Lonnie Jackson made four straight free throws in the final 26.2 seconds, and lowly Boston College stunned top-ranked Syracuse 62-59, ending the Orange’s unbeaten season. The Eagles came to town with heavy hearts and a good dose of determination. Longtime basketball media c o n ta c t a n d sports information assistant Dick Kelley died last week after a two-year battle with ALS. His funeral was Tuesday and the Eagles, who often visited his apartment, were wearing “DK” patches on their uniforms. Boston College (7-19, 3-10 Atlantic Coast Conference), which had lost five straight, rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to pull off the improbable upset. Syracuse (25-1, 12-1) travels to No. 5 Duke on Saturday night for a rematch of their overtime instant classic on Feb. 1. The loss left No. 3 Wichita State (28-0), which beat Loyola of Chicago 8874, as the lone unbeaten in Division I.

Portland forward Thomas Robinson, left, and San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobli grapple for the ball during the second half Wednesday.
Spurs sit stars, still beat Blazers PORTLAND (AP) — San Antonio stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker took the night off Wednesday. No matter. As is usual when the Spurs are without their stars, the rest of the team got the job done. Patty Mills came off the bench to score 29 points, Marco Belinelli hit a goahead 3-pointer with 1:34 remaining and San Antonio rallied in the second half to pull out a 111-109 victory over the Trail Blazers. San Antonio has won two of three games this season when Duncan and Parker were both absent from the lineup. Mills helped fill the void with a 24-point second half. The fourth-year guard from Australia came off the bench to hit 13 of 26 shots against the Blazers. Belinelli had 20 points and
Manu Ginobili 16 for San Antonio. Mills has been on a hot streak since the All-Star break concluded, scoring 25 and 29 points in the Spurs’ first two games back. “If it wasn’t for him the last couple nights, we would have really struggled,” San Antonio forward Danny Green said. “He’s doing what Tony usually does, in taking over in that fourth quarter.” Mills explained his recent stretch in humble tones, saying “for me, it’s just been learning from great guys. We’ve got three future Hall of Famers and a great coach, so I’ve just sat back and learned.” It wasn’t just Mills, though. Belinelli hit four 3pointers, and Tiago Splitter had 15 points and six rebounds in returning to the lineup for the first time since Feb. 6. “I thought the effort was
fantastic,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Portland was without leading scorer and rebounder LaMarcus Aldridge, who missed the game with a groin injury and is expected to be out at least a week. Also sidelined were forward Joel Freeland (knee) and center Meyers Leonard (ankle). Aside from Duncan and Parker, the Spurs also were without guard Kawhi Leonard (right hand). Damian Lillard scored 31 points, including 15 during the fourth quarter, for Portland. Coming off his first All-Star game appearance, Lillard hit 13 of 21 shots and handed out six assists. Mo Williams had 19 points and Wesley Matthews 18 for the Blazers. Aldridge, Without Freeland and Leonard, the Blazers had to resort to play-
ing a small lineup. It resulted in erratic play, with stretches when the Blazers’ offense went missing. “We tried to beat San Antonio at their game and they did it better than us,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “San Antonio is used to playing these games without their guys and they plug guys in and they play well.” Trailing 81-79 after three quarters, San Antonio took command when Green hit back-to-back 3-pointers to fuel a 10-0 run at the fourth quarter’s outset. The Spurs led by as many as 10 points, but the Blazers eventually pulled even at 101-101 on Matthews’ steal and dunk with 1:52 remaining. On San Antonio’s next possession, Belinelli hit a 3pointer from the top of the key with 1:34 left to put the Spurs back on top.
Love, Timberwolves topple Pacers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Love had 42 points and 16 rebounds, Ricky Rubio added a career-high 17 assists, and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat Paul George and the Indiana Pacers 104-91 on Wednesday night. J.J. Barea scored 12 points off the bench as the Wolves took control early against the Eastern Conference leaders. George led Indiana with 35 points, but managed just two in the fourth quarter as the Pacers lost for the third time in five games, never once taking a lead. It was Love’s eighth straight game with at least 25 points and 10 rebounds, the longest streak since Shaquille O’Neal accomplished the same feat Jan. 3-19, 2005. Love has an NBA-best 14 games with 30 points and 10 rebounds this season. Rockets 134, Lakers 108: Dwight Howard thoroughly enjoyed his visit to the team he left as a free agent after one tumultuous and contentious season, getting 20 points and 13 rebounds in a rout of Los Angeles that extended Houston’s winning streak to eight. The streak is Houston’s longest since a franchise-record, 22-game run in
2007-08 under Rick Adelman. James Harden scored 11 of his 29 points in the final 1:25 of the third quarter and added 11 assists. Wesley Johnson scored 24 points for Los Angeles. Bulls 94, Raptors 92: Carlos Boozer scored 20 points, D.J. Augustin had 19 against his former team and Chicago edged Toronto to win its fourth straight game. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 32 points but had a couple key misses at the end. Warriors 101, Kings 92: David Lee had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Klay Thompson scored 18 points and Golden State held off Sacramento in a game both teams played short-handed. With both centers out with injuries and a shorter roster from trades each team made earlier in the day, the depth of the Warriors was just too much for the Kings to overcome. Isaiah Thomas had 26 points and seven assists,and Travis Outlaw scored 18 points for a Sacramento team that’s headed for an eighth straight losing season. Cavaliers 101, Magic 93: Kyrie Irving scored 22 points and Cleveland won its sixth straight by beating Orlando. Irving, chosen MVP of the NBA AllStar game Sunday, paced a balanced offense that extended the Cavaliers’
longest winning streak since they won eight in a row in March 2010. That was LeBron James’ final season in Cleveland. Arron Afflalo led Orlando with 23 points. Bobcats 116, Pistons 98: Al Jefferson scored 29 points, Kemba Walker had 24 points and a career-high 16 assists, and Charlotte defeated Detroit for the second straight night. The win gave the Bobcats (25-30) a sweep of the three-game season series 1 and a 2 ⁄2-game lead over the Pistons in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Nets 105, Jazz 99: Joe Johnson scored 27 pointsand Brooklyn beat the Jazz for the Nets’ first win in Utah since 2008. Reserve guard Alec Burks led the Jazz with 23 points. Wizards 114, Hawks 97: John Wall scored 21 points and Washington recovered to beat reeling Atlanta after almost blowing a 20-point lead. Knicks 98, Pelicans 91: Carmelo Anthony capped a 42-point performance with three clutch baskets in the last two minutes, and New York snapped a three-game skid with a victory over New Orleans. Suns 100, Celtics 94: Markieff Morris scored 18 points to lead six Phoenix players in double figures against Boston.
Drivers will take cautious approach at Daytona DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Don’t look for defending Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson to take many chances in Today’s qualifying race. Johnson, the six-time and defending Sprint Cup champion, already wrecked one car in the exhibition Sprint Unlimited last week and really likes the Chevrolet his team has prepped and ready for “The Great American Race” on Sunday. So Johnson was one of a handful of drivers who turned few laps — some drivers didn’t turn any — in the two practice sessions on Wednesday. “We need to watch ourselves because we’re down to one car,” Johnson said. “We have other stuff at home, but we really don’t want to bring it down here. We like the car that’s sitting over there,
ready for the 500.” Austin Dillon and Martin Truex Jr. are the only drivers who have locked up starting positions in the Daytona 500. Dillon, a rookie, won the pole Sunday, and Truex earned the other front-row spot. The rest of the field will be set today in the 150-mile qualifying races, which are moving to prime time for the first time since their inception in 1959. For Johnson, who is guaranteed a starting spot in NASCAR’s season opener and its premier event, the only thing that matters is getting his car to Sunday in one piece. “It will be weighing on my mind the whole race that we could lose that car and put ourselves in a big hole for the 500,” Johnson said. “The safest place, really, is leading ... and typically the guys rac-
ing for the lead are the ones you trust the most, especially with this package. “We just need to make smart decisions and hope we get through the race with a good, straight race car.” The top 15 drivers, excluding Dillon and Truex, from each the qualifying races earn spots in the Daytona 500 and will land starting positions 332. That leaves 19 drivers for the final 13 spots. Spots 3336 are awarded to the four remaining drivers based on qualifying time from Sunday. The next six spots are based on 2013 owner points. Like Johnson, Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards, Ryan Newman, Brad Keselowski, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer are locked into the opener. The
most recent Cup champion also gets a spot, meaning Tony Stewart (2011), Kurt Busch (2004), Bobby Labonte (2000) and Terry Labonte (1996) can rely on that if needed. Neither Busch nor Bobby Labonte, both driving for new teams, has owner points from last year. Terry Labonte finished 37th. Four drivers — Michael McDowell, Cole Whitt, Dave Blaney and Morgan Shepherd — must race their way into one of the 15 automatic spots from the qualifying race because they are so low in qualifying speed and owner points. Nine others — AJ Parker Allmendinger, Kligerman, Alex Bowman, Reed Sorenson, Joe Nemechek, Josh Wise, Ryan Truex, Terry Labonte and
BASEBALL Reds, Bailey agree to new six-year contract GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Starter Homer Bailey agreed to a $105 million, six-year contract that avoids arbitration and will help the Cincinnati Reds with their cash flow by deferring some of the salary for short periods. The deal includes a $25 million mutual option for 2020 with a $5 million buyout. Bailey was the final major league player left in arbitration this year and reached the agreement a day before his scheduled hearing in Florida. He made $5.35 million last season and had asked for $11.6 million in arbitration. The Reds had offered $8.7 million, their biggest gap among their players in arbitration. The 27-year-old Texan was coming off a season that included his second no-hitter.
Orioles complete deal to add Ubaldo Jimenez
took part in some of the taunting of offensive lineman Andrew McDonald, the NFL report said. O’Neill expressed hostility toward the investigation and cut short an interview with those conducting it, according to the report. O’Neill was fired shortly after he and other team officials arrived in Indianapolis for the league’s annual scouting combine. Turner didn’t make the trip.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL Brother of Philip Rivers will leave LSU team BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU says it has granted reserve quarterback Stephen Rivers’ request to transfer after he graduates this spring, allowing him to play wherever he wants next fall. Rivers, the younger brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, has used only two seasons of eligibility after taking a redshirt year at LSU in 2011. He spent 2012 as Zach Mettenberger’s backup, seeing only limited action in four games. He entered 2013 expecting to be Mettenberger’s backup again, but fell behind Anthony Jennings in the depth chart. Jennings wound up filling in for Mettenberger and leading LSU to a comeback victory in the Tigers’ regular-season finale against Arkansas. Jennings then started LSU’s Outback Bowl victory over Iowa.
PRO BASKETBALL Warriors add Blake as backup point guard SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors made another move in hopes of finding a reliable backup to point guard Stephen Curry. The Warriors acquired Steve Blake from the Los Angeles Lakers for reserve guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks, adding a veteran ball-handler to their beleaguered bench.
Nets pick up Thornton in trade with Sacramento NEW YORK — The Brooklyn Nets acquired guard Marcus Thornton from the Sacramento Kings for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans, removing two littleused veterans from their aging roster and hoping a younger one can rediscover his scoring touch. Terry came from Boston along with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce but has appeared in just 35 games after a knee injury, averaging 4.5 points on 36 percent shooting. Evans was a favorite of fans but not coach Jason Kidd, who used him in just 30 of their 51 games. Evans made 56 starts last season and led the Nets with 11.1 rebounds per game, but lost his starting spot when the Nets acquired Garnett, and then fell behind rookie Mason Plumlee in Kidd’s rotation. Thornton, 26, is averaging just 8.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes per game this season. He has started 26 of 46 games and is shooting 38 percent from the floor, including 31 percent from 3-point range.
SARASOTA, Fla. — The Baltimore Orioles and righthander Ubaldo Jimenez have finalized a four-year, freeagent contract. The Orioles on Wednesday announced the deal with Jimenez, who has an 82-75 record with a 3.92 ERA in eight seasons with Colorado and Cleveland. Last season, Jimenez went 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA for the Indians. His best year came in 2010 when he was 19-8 with a 2.88 ERA for Colorado and was the NL starter in the All-Star Game. In order to sign the 30year-old right-hander, Baltimore must give up its first-round draft choice, the 17th pick overall, in June’s draft. Jimenez is expected to join Developmental league the Orioles’ starting staff.

NEW YORK — The NBA PRO FOOTBALL Development League will Dolphins fire two coaches begin assessing technical in wake of scandal fouls for flops, a new rule that MIAMI — The Miami Dolphins fired offensive line coach Jim Turner and longtime head athletic trainer Kevin O’Neill for their roles in the team’s bullying scandal. The moves were the first punitive steps taken by the Dolphins since a report on the NFL’s investigation of the case was released last week. Investigators found that guard Richie Incognito and two teammates engaged in persistent harassment directed at tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. Martin left the team at midseason, and Incognito was suspended for the final eight games. Turner didn’t attempt to stop the harassment and even
goes further than the NBA one by punishing the act during a game. The NBA began to issue punishments last season for flopping, the art of exaggerating contact to deceive referees into calling a foul, but only retroactively. If a player is determined to have flopped after a postgame review, he is given a warning for the first offense and a $5,000 fine for the second. Under the NBA D-League system that begins Thursday and runs through the end of the season, referees will note when they believe a flop occurred, then confirm it via instant replay at the next timeout or quarter break. If confirmed, the free throw will be shot at that time.

Sports Arizona holds on for OT victory
College game ends in draw CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Talk about shooting the lights out. The Division II game Wednesday night between Johnson C. Smith and Winston Salem State ended a in a draw after a player heaved a full-court shot with less than a second left and knocked out lights, forcing the game to be halted for safety concerns. For Johnson C. Smith’s longtime assistant coach Mark Sherill, that was a first. He has seen a lot as in 21 years as an assistant at Johnson C. Smith — where he also played — but nothing like this. A tip-in by Javan Wells of the Rams tied the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association game at 76-76 with 0.3 seconds left when Joshua Linson tried a fullcourt shot. The ball hit two lights and knocked them out — with one light left hanging — according to the WinstonSalem Journal. Coach Stephen Joyner Sr., also the Johnson C. Smith athletic director, spoke with the game officials to assess the situation and it was deemed a safety concern. “We didn’t know how long the chains would last,” Sherill said. “The WinstonSalem coach (Bobby Collins) agreed it didn’t look safe. I’ve been in basketball a long time; this is the first time I’ve ever had a draw.” The CIAA released a statement Thursday morning saying, “We were made aware of the damaged light fixture, which made continuation of play in an overtime period impossible in the judgment of administrators and officials on site. In such circumstances, safety is our top priority.” The release also stated that the situation is covered in their rules under, Section 4. Interrupted Game: “When a game is interrupted because of events beyond the control of the responsible administrative authorities, it shall be continued from the point of interruption unless the teams agree otherwise or there are applicable conference, league or association rules.” Joyner said the schools and CIAA officials would determine if the game would be finished at a later date. The schools are 78 miles apart.

Big second half lifts Ducks Oregon improves to 5-8 in Pac-12 with 78-71 victory ■
EUGENE (AP) — Oregon is feeling the urgency of needing a late-season run to make the NCAA Tournament, and the Ducks showed that in the second half Wednesday. Damyean Dotson and Joseph Young combined for 23 points after halftime, sparking Oregon to a 78-71 win over Washington on Wednesday. Oregon’s Mike Moser had 20 points, Young 18 and Dotson 17 in coach Dana Altman’s 500th Division I win. Oregon shot 57 percent from the floor. The Ducks (17-8, 5-8 Pac 12) won back-to-back games for the first time since their 13-0 start ended Jan. 5. “We need all these games and it’s good momentum going into the (Pac-12) tournament,” said Oregon senior guard Johnathan Loyd, who got his school-record 90th win in the program. “If we can stay hot and get hot during the tournament, that benefits us.” Perris Blackwell led Washington (14-13, 6-8) with 17 points, Andrew Andrews added 15 and Nigel WilliamsGoss and Desmond Simmons had 12 apiece. Oregon quickly erased a three-point halftime deficit
as Young capped a 10-0 run with a 3-pointer to make it 46-39 Ducks. Washington closed within one before Oregon stretched it out to a 58-52 lead on Dotson’s tip-in with 13:01 remaining. The Huskies later scored five straight, with two C.J. Wilcox free throws tying the game at 60 with 9:11 left. Oregon scored the game’s next five points and never trailed again. The Ducks took a 71-63 lead on Ben Carter’s two foul shots with 6:29 left. Washington got no closer than three from there, scoring just one point after Williams-Goss got the Huskies within 73-70 on a lay-in with 2:34 left. Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar said his team wasn’t able to gather any momentum despite tying the score in the latter part of the second half. “I think they were on a roll and just continued to make shots,” Romar said. Moser’s 20 points - on 8 of 12 from the field -- are his most in the last nine games. Dotson, a quiet sophomore guard, showed rare emotions as he helped rally the Ducks in the second half. His 17 points (on 7 of 8 shooting) tied a season high, which he first set back in late November. “I guess just from me not playing so well at the begin-
ning of the year,” Dotson said of his outbursts. “Just trying to get back to my rhythm and just playing hard.” Washington has now lost five of its last six games since starting 5-3 in Pac-12 play. Wilcox, a senior guard who came in averaging 18.8 points per game, was held to nine, his third singledigit total in the last four games. Romar said there are opportunities for Wilcox to be more aggressive. He just needs to take them. The Ducks weathered a 15 start in conference and have four Pac-12 losses by four points or less. They’re 6-3 since. “The guys have stayed resilient,” Altman said. They’ve stayed together. I like the way they’ve handled it.” Oregon took its biggest lead of a tight first half at 2419 on a Moser 3-pointer with 9:14 left. Washington answered with a 9-0 run, with Simmons scoring the last four points. Oregon tied the game three times and took a 36-32 with a 6-0 run. Washington scored the last seven points of the half to lead 39-36. Wilcox, averaging 18.8 points per game, was held to just two in the first half on 1 of 4 shooting. Blackwell and Simmons picked up the slack with 10 apiece before the break.
SALT LAKE CITY — Gabe York and Nick Johnson each scored 15 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 13 and No. 4 Arizona escaped with a 67-63 overtime victory against Utah on Wednesday night. The Wildcats (24-2, 11-2 Pac-12) beat Utah for the ninth straight time since a loss in the 1998 NCAA tournament. Arizona also held onto sole possession of first place in the Pac-12, one game ahead of UCLA. Brandon Taylor had 13 points and Dallin Bachynski and Delon Wright each scored 12 for the Utes (17-9, 6-8), who lost at home for the second time this season. The score was tied at 58 before Hollis-Jefferson made two baskets to give the Wildcats a four-point lead with 1:52 left in overtime. His second bucket came after Taylor, an 86 percent free throw shooter, missed three straight from the line to prevent Utah from taking the lead. Wright made a pair of free throws to cut it to 62-60, but threw the ball away with 33.9 seconds left. Johnson and T.J. McConnell each made free throws to help secure the victory in the final seconds. Utah lost despite outrebounding Arizona 37-31 and finishing with a 34-23 edge in points in the paint. Arizona started strong, making its first four field goal attempts and taking a 9-8 lead. Utah kept pace by hitting seven of its first 10 shots from the field. Princeton Onwas stole the ball from HollisJefferson and dunked it on the other end to cap a 6-0 spurt. Arizona went on a 14-0 run later in the half. York capped the surge by hitting a 3-pointer and then taking his own steal from Taylor in for a layup, giving the Wildcats a 25-16 lead. The Utes cut it to single digits again when Onwas took another steal in for a dunk to make it 35-26. Arizona had a chance to take a 12-point lead into the locker room when Jordin Mayes nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, but the officials waved it off during halftime. The Utes ripped off a 10-2 run to get back into the game. A pair of big baskets from freshman Ahmad Fields cut the deficit to 48-44. Arizona endured a short cold spell after a layup from McConnell made it 52-44 with 6:41 left,
going 3:13 without a field goal. Utah took advantage with an 11-2 run and went ahead 55-54 on a runner from Jordan Loveridge with 3:09 remaining. Arizona regained a onepoint lead on Johnson’s jumper with 2:21 left. Utah tied it when Loveridge made one of two free throws with 28 seconds to go. McConnell had a chance to win it for the Wildcats in regulation, but missed a runner in the lane as time expired. No. 23 UCLA 86, California 66: Jordan Adams scored 28 points and No. 23 UCLA returned to the national rankings with an impressive victory against California on Wednesday night to keep pace in the Pac12 title chase. Kyle Anderson had 11 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Bruins (21-5, 10-3), who won their fourth straight game and seventh in eight. UCLA remained a game behind Pac-12 leader Arizona, which won in overtime at Utah. Jordan Mathews scored 16 off the bench for cold-shooting Cal (17-9, 8-5), which couldn’t pull off the same spectacular finish at raucous Haas Pavilion as it did in stunning then-No. 1 and unbeaten Arizona 60-58 on Feb. 1. Adams shot 12 for 19 and scored five straight points midway through the second half that put the Bruins ahead 71-50 with 9:24 remaining. He also had six rebounds and five assists. Travis Wear added 13 points. Colorado 61, Arizona State 52: Askia Booker scored all but two of his 18 points during a second-half charge that carried Colorado past Arizona State in a game dominated by defense. Josh Scott added 13 points and 13 rebounds for Colorado (20-7, 9-5 Pac-12), which reached the 20-win mark for the fourth straight season under coach Tad Boyle. Arizona State (19-7, 8-5) was coming off its biggest home win in school history, a 69-66 double-overtime thriller against then-No. 2 Arizona on Friday night, but the Sun Devils never got into a good rhythm against the Buffaloes. Colorado improved to 6-5 since losing star point guard and leading scorer Spencer Dinwiddie to a torn ACL on Jan. 12, and the Buffs’ second straight 20-win season improved their NCAA tournament profile. Jahii Carson led Arizona State with 18 points.

French sweep skicross medals KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Just shy of an elegant and historic finish in a sport where both are in short supply, France’s Jonathan Midol provided a comic reminder Thursday that in skicross, order comes from chaos, not the other way around. Seconds after countrymen Jean Frederic Chapuis and Arnaud Bovolenta grabbed gold and silver in the Olympic final, Midol was headed across the finish to join them when he washed out landing the final jump. Gravity did the rest. Instead of a picturesque moment with arms aloft in triumph after France’s first-ever medals sweep in the Winter Olympics, Midol slid to bronze on his behind. Skis splayed. Poles flopped. Midol laughed. Skicross won. So did France.
“I can’t explain how it feels,” Midol said. “We had a dream to make the podium with friends. The Olympic Games, three French on the podium is incredible.” And unprecedented. France’s last podium sweep in any Olympics came on men’s vault during the 1924 Summer Games in Paris. Nine decades later in a sport barely out of its infancy, the bleu, blanc and rouge will drape across the medal stand once again. “We party together,” Bovolenta said. “We share the glory of our victories together and we generally have lots of fun in training, all the time. They were wonderful minutes when we’re on the podium together.” Minutes that arrived only after two hours of typical skicross bedlam at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. On softening
snow that rode like an indecisive escalator — fast in places, slow in others — the second run of skicross in the Olympics produced incidents and accidents that didn’t play favorites. Gold medal contender Victor Oehling Norberg of Sweden was leading his quarterfinal heat when his skis crossed a few feet from the finish. In an instant he was joined by Jouni Pellinen of Norway and Russia’s Egor Korotkov. Rather than advance to the semifinals, Oehling Norberg ended up third when his lastsecond lunge with his arms was edged out by Korotkov’s flop across the line. “I just lost my balance,” Oehling Norberg said. “It’s my fault.” That wasn’t always the case in an event where hard luck doesn’t necessarily lead
to hard feelings. Chris Del Bosco of Canada narrowly missed out on bronze in Vancouver in 2010 when he smashed into a gate in the finals. In Sochi, he was second fastest in qualifying, then went out in the first round of elimination races after failing to find any sort of rhythm over the series of rolling mounds, banked turns and a massive leap at the end that is the equivalent of jumping out of a six-story building at 50 mph. John Teller of the U.S. spent most of a first-round elimination race battling with Midol for position. Three times they touched, with Teller losing his momentum after the final clash, his unlikely pursuit of an Olympic medal gone. “That’s skicross,” the part-time auto mechanic said.
Tight battle develops for women’s medals SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Anxiety and energy. Conviction and courage. They all combined Wednesday — along with one stunning fall — to set up an unpredictable race for the Olympic gold medal in women’s figure skating. Nerves almost got the best of Yuna Kim in the short program Wednesday night. Then she showed she is still the favorite to win another title. Her lead is almost as slim as it could get, .28 points over a woman from the host country — no, not Julia Lipnitskaia. Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova, with a snappy routine that had the crowd on its feet before she finished her final spin, was second, while Lipnitskaia plummeted to fifth after her fall on a triple flip. Italy’s Carolina Kostner, whose “Ave Maria” program is almost a religious experience for her, was .80 back. Chicago’s Gracie Gold was fourth, within striking distance after overcoming a sense of stage fright. Kim, 23, would become the third woman to win consecutive Olympics, following Sonja Henie and Katarina Witt. But she’ll probably need to calm down to step up to the top of the podium. “I am a human being,” she said. “I get nervous all the time. It just doesn’t show on my face.” Plenty showed on
The Associated Press
Carolina Kostner of Italy competes in the women’s short program figure skating competition Wednesday. Lipnitskaia’s face: sadness, disappointment, even disbelief — as if the 15-year-old’s dog had just run away. On a day Lipnitskaia’s hockey countrymen flopped out of the games, she couldn’t revive Russian hearts. After winning both programs in the team event to help the hosts take the gold, Lipnitskaia fell on a triple flip and then broke down in tears. “This does not define her
career or who she is as an athlete,” coach Eteri Tutberidze said through a translator. “She simply made a mistake. That’s all. It happens.” When it happened, the crowd was stunned. And Kim had the lead, but barely over Sotnikova. “Most important is to see your goals, to try and try,” said Sotnikova, 17. “If you want it, you achieve it.”
Kostner has been trying to achieve something special in the Olympics since the Turin Games, when she was ninth. She was far worse at Vancouver, a dismal 16th, and she began questioning her career goals. But she kept going. “I wanted to skate because I love it,” she said. “Hard times make you understand what you really want.” In “Ave Maria,” she found just the tonic, an elegant program she seems to float through. “It’s just a prayer to everything I’ve lived and learned through skating,” Kostner said. U.S. champion Gracie Gold, second to Lipnitskaia in the team free skate, had a clean short program to sneak in ahead of Lipnitskaia by 3.4 points. “To be able to come up here and feel stiff and white as a ghost but stare fear in the face is what I’m all about now,” the 18-year-old Gold said. Ashley Wagner of Alexandria, Va., and Polina Edmunds of San Jose, Calif., were sixth and seventh — a very strong showing for the United States. Vancouver silver medalist Mao Asada of Japan had several major mistakes, two on the triple axel that has been her trademark — and also her curse. She plummeted to 16th.
SOCHI, Russia (AP) — The losing didn’t bother the Swiss women’s hockey team, even as it was slogging through the round-robin without a victory and finishing last in its group. Sure, the 9-0 loss to the United States hurt. But a 5-0 victory by Canada was the closest Switzerland had ever come to the three-time defending Olympic champions, and a playoff victory over Russia put the Swiss in the semifinals. When they lost just 3-1 to Canada in the semifinals, they felt like they were ready to claim their first women’s hockey medal in the country’s Olympic history. They were. “We didn’t care about the color of a medal,” said Florence Schelling, who stopped 28 shots to help Switzerland beat Sweden 4-3 in the bronze medal game today. “A medal is a medal.” Jessica Lutz broke a thirdperiod tie with 6:17 to play as Switzerland rallied from a two-goal deficit with four straight third-period goals to earn just its second victory of the Sochi Games. Sara Benz and Phoebe Stanz scored to help Switzerland tie the game, and Aline Muller scored a 175-foot emptynetter with 67 seconds left that turned out to be the difference. “Everybody believed in those two goals, and then we even scored four,” Stanz said. “When the first goal went in, that’s like when the knot unties. That’s how it was for our team. The second goal going in, that just showed us that it only takes one more goal to win this game.” Because of the tournament format, Switzerland was lumped in a round-robin group with the three topranked teams in the world — including the United States and Canada, who were scheduled to play for the gold medal later Thursday. But it also meant the Swiss were guaranteed a spot in the playoffs without winning a game, and they needed just one victory to reach the medal round.
So, when they lost as expected to the U.S., Canada and Finland, they never lost their confidence. “We knew it would be like that, and we were really prepared for that,” forward Katrin Nabholz said. And the experience helped when they fell behind 2-0 on Thursday. “When it was 2-0, we knew we had nothing to lose,” Nabholz said. “Then, we are at our best.” Valentina Wallner stopped 22 shots for Sweden. Michelle Lowenheilm scored in the first period, and Erica Uden Johansson made it 2-0 with 62 seconds left in the second period on a long, fluttering goal that Schelling, who played at Northeastern University in Boston, allowed to tip off the webbing of her glove. The Swiss cut the deficit to 2-1 early in the third when a deflected puck skittered over to Benz in the slot, and she slapped it past Wallner. With 13:47 left in regulation, Stanz scored on a rebound. The game was still tied 22 when Lara Stalder kept the puck in the zone and skated in before shuffling it over to the middle for Lutz, who flipped it past Wallner for the go-ahead goal. Muller’s empty-netter seemed to clinch it but, with the goalie still pulled, Pernilla Winberg cut it to 4-3 with 44 seconds left. Sweden spent the last 30 seconds trying to clear the puck out of its own zone, though, and when the last seconds ticked off the clock the Swiss poured over the boards and threw their equipment into the air in celebration. Because of the dominance of the North Americans, who have won every gold medal and all but one silver in Olympic history, the rest of the world is essentially playing for third place. And Switzerland won. “The bronze medal is our goal. The medal games were our goal,” Benz said. “Of course we wanted to win every game, but maybe next Olympics.”
Norway team takes Nordic combined gold KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — After failing to win a medal at the Vancouver Olympics, the country that spawned Nordic combined more than 125 years ago made quite a comeback in Sochi. Norway won its second gold medal in three days after taking Thursday’s large hill team event. That gave the Scandinavian country its fourth medal of the games in three events. Norwegians Joergen Graabak and Magnus Moan finished one-two in the large hill Tuesday while teammate Magnus Krog took the bronze in the normal hill. “Tuesday was a great day for me, but this is better — standing on top with these friends and teammates,” Graabak said inside the stadium at the RusSki Gorki Jumping Center after the venue’s final event of these games. “We had a bit of a rough patch in Vancouver ... to be able to take the gold and also three individual medals at these championships is unreal.” On Thursday, cross-
country ski specialist Moan made up a 25-second deficit on the first leg and Norway outdueled Germany and defending champion Austria in the relay in which each team member skied 5 kilometers. Final-leg skier Graabak outsprinted German rival Fabian Riessle in the last 100 meters to give Norway the victory by three-tenths of a second. Two-time defending champion Austria took the bronze, 3.4 seconds behind. Norway, where soldiers first competed informally in ski jumping and cross-country skiing in the late 1800s, finished the relay in 47 minutes, 13.5 seconds. “I’ve had a lot of good sprints this year, and I knew that if I was the first one into the stadium, I was pretty confident that I would be the first one over the finish line,” Graabak said. Germany took an early lead when all four of its competitors, including normal hill gold medalist Eric Frenzel, jumped 125 meters or better — the only team to do so.

Men’s hockey rolls past Czech Republic U.S. will play Canada in the semifinals ■
SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Dustin Brown banged in a go-ahead goal late in the first period and the United States went on to dominate the Czech Republic 5-2 Wednesday, earning a spot in the Olympic hockey semifinals for the second straight time. The U.S. will play Canada on Friday for a spot in the gold-medal game. The Canadians beat Latvia 2-1. James van Riemsdyk gave the Americans a lead 1:39 into the game. They lost it a few minutes later when one of their defenseman, Ryan McDonagh, tried to clear the puck away from the front of the
crease and it went off the left skate of Ryan Suter and got past Jonathan Quick. The Czechs were not as successful scoring on their own against Quick, who started ahead of 2010 silver-medal winning goaltender Ryan Miller. Ales Hemsky was credited with a goal that two Americans touched after he did. Hemsky legitimately scored his second one, skating to the slot and snapping off a wrist shot that got past Quick’s blocker with 7 minutes left in the game. Brown put the U.S. up 2-1 at the 14:38 mark of the first, and David Backes made it 3-1 with 1.8 seconds in the period. Zach Parise piled on, pushing the Americans’ lead to 4-1 midway through the second period to chase goalie Ondrej Pavelec after
he made just eight saves. He was replaced by Alexander Salak. The Americans shaped their roster with players who skate fast, hit hard, share the puck and score. The U.S. has been tested only once in a 3-2, eight-round shootout against the host Russians in the preliminary round. The Americans have crushed the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia by a combined score of 17-4. While the Czechs had to play for a second straight day because they had to beat Slovakia in the qualification round just to reach the quarterfinals, the rested Americans were ready to roll after having two days off. The U.S. seemed to take advantage of having fresh legs, beating the Czech Republic to loose pucks all night long.

Speedskating may add new events for the next Olympics

The team from Canada CAN-1, piloted by Kaillie Humphries with brakeman Heather Moyse, speed down the track in their final run during the women's bobsled competition on Wednesday. The team won the gold medal.
Canada edges U.S. sleds for gold KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — They called it the Battle Royale. Kaillie Humphries and Elana Meyers spent part of the summer training alongside one another, getting ready to spend this winter battling each other. They shared a coach. They shared philosophies. They shared knowledge. They could not share the Olympic gold medal. It belongs to Humphries. Canada’s team of Humphries and Heather Moyse are again queens of Olympic women’s bobsledding, rallying past the U.S. duo of Meyers and Lauryn Williams on Wednesday night to win gold at the Sochi Games. It’s the second straight Olympic title for Humphries and Moyse, and it wasn’t decided until the final moment of the competition — then only by a tenth of a second. “We knew it was going to be this way,” Humphries said after becoming the first women’s bobsledder to drive to back-to-back Olympic golds. So close, all season. The World Cup title went to Humphries, by a single point. So did the Sochi title, by a sliver of the time it takes to blink. “Anytime you come that close and you can taste it, if you don’t get the
result, it hurts a little bit,” Meyers said. “But Kaillie just beat me.” Meyers, of Douglasville, Ga., became the first U.S. women’s bobsledder to win multiple Olympic medals, this one added to the bronze she captured as a brakeman in Vancouver. Williams, of Rochester, Pa., became the first U.S. woman and fifth athlete overall to win medals in different sports at both the Summer and Winter Games, her silver here added to a sprint relay gold from London in 2012 and a silver from the 100 meters in Athens in 2004. “I didn’t come here to make history,” Williams said after what could very well be her final bobsled race, just six months after she gave the sport a try. “I came here to help Team USA and I feel like I did.” Jamie Greubel of Newtown, Pa., paired with brakeman Aja Evans of Chicago to grab the bronze in USA-2, giving the U.S. two Olympic women’s bobsled medal winners for the first time. “We have so much depth in our program and so much talent on our team,” Greubel said. “And to be able to show the world that we are a force to be reckoned with is really awesome.” All true. But this night belonged to
Humphries and Moyse. They were second behind Meyers and Williams in USA-1 after the first two runs on Tuesday and left the track not knowing or caring how far behind they were. The way they saw it, showing up on Wednesday and going as fast as they could was all that mattered. Moyse did acknowledge that she knew a comeback was possible. And after the third heat, that was obvious to everyone. They cut by more than half the 0.23-second deficit they faced entering Wednesday’s final two heats. Humphries went next-to-last in the final run, throwing down a sizzling 57.92 to put the pressure on USA-1. Moments later, when Meyers had an early skid in her final trip down the track, the gold was essentially decided. Still, USA-1 hardly seemed dissatisfied with Sochi silver. After all, just a few days ago, they needed their sled rebuilt after a crash. “It’s been an incredible journey,” Meyers said. Not long afterward, all three U.S. teams — including Lolo Jones of Des Moines, Iowa, and Jazmine Fenlator of Wayne, N.J., who were 11th in USA-3 — were arm in arm, celebrating that two medals are America-bound.
SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Mass start and mixed team pursuit races are under consideration for the Olympic speedskating program as the International Skating Union looks for ways of making the sport more exciting for fans. Sometimes faced with empty stands during the season, hesitant sponsors and monotonous races during Olympic prime time, ISU President Ottavio Cinquanta said he wants to broaden the appeal with some changes. In an interview with The Associated Press, Cinquanta says he seeks “to maintain the tradition of speedskating with two skaters in dedicated lanes, and to have a mass start in addition.” Mass start races would add intrigue, team tactics and a direct confrontation of skating styles in long-distance races. It could also bring some elements of the crash and tumble of short track to the Olympic big oval — something unlikely to please the purists. Having some of the biggest names in the sport in the thick of a new event, going shoulder to shoulder, could only help raise the profile, Cinquanta said. “My interest is to have the big names — Sven Kramer, Jan Blokhuijzen,” he said of the two Dutch stars. The Netherlands has dominated the 2014 speedskating program with four medal sweeps among its haul — in one event, Dutch women finished first to fourth. Dutch team manager Arie Koops endorses the addition of a mass start, saying “It would be great. Spectacular.” Koops already envisages having semifinals where no
nation can have more than one racer before the final, and where team tactics could play a part. “And it would also draw the inline skating nations in,” he said. “It has something of short track too.” It has been done in the past. At the 1932 Lake Placid Games, eight racers set off in the 10,000 final, with the pace steadily picking up before resulting in a mad sprint for the line, with the winner stumbling and crashing across the line. Such a race could involve a mix of long distance stars, marathon racers and skaters with an explosive finish to keep the audience captivated for some 15 minutes. Cinquanta is also considering a mixed team pursuit race, which would be a first for speedskating at the Olympics. “Two men, two women together, giving the team leader the opportunity to set how racing goes,” he said. It would become an extremely tactical race because of the differences in top speeds between the men and women. “The composition of the team is very important and would be very spicy,” said Cinquanta. This is where Koops didn’t really agree with the ISU president’s line of thinking. Having athletes perform at anything less than their best, “you lose the essence of sports.” “I understand you want to have mixed events, but you should not do this in a pursuit because the speed differences are such that the men cannot go full out,” he said. Other options would be to have relay baton exchanges between men and women so everyone can go at top speed.
American teen favored to capture women’s slalom KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin came to the Sochi Games hoping for two medals. Didn’t matter one bit that she’s only 18 or that she’s at her first Olympics. After a fifth-place finish in the giant slalom, the American gets to race Friday in her specialty, the slalom, which she has ruled for the past two years, including a world championship and World Cup title. She’s won eight of the past 18 slaloms; no one else has won more than two in that span. It’s the last women’s event on the Alpine hill at Rosa Khutor, and the second leg will be under the lights at night. “I’ve been preparing for this for my entire life, really. Whether I knew it or not at the time, every single instance, every event that’s happened to me — it’s been preparation for this and preparation for whatever happens in The Associated Press my future,” Shiffrin said. “I’ve always been United States' Mikaela Shiffrin passes a gate in the first run of the women's giant slalom at the Olympics on really aware of that.” That’s why Shiffrin was able to smile and Tuesday.
even laugh and, at least publicly, brush aside whatever disappointment she might have felt when she wound up out of the medals in the giant slalom on Tuesday. Asked that day which of her two GS runs she would like to redo, she replied: “I wouldn’t redo any of them. I think this was supposed to happen.” In what way? “I believed that I wasn’t going to win my first World Cup slalom race until I was ready, because if I won it a minute sooner, then I wouldn’t be able to continue to win,” explained Shiffrin, who lives in Eagle-Vail, Colo. “And I think it’s the same for my first GS. I was really thinking that my first GS win would be at the Olympics, and that would be such a cool thing to accomplish. But it’s just something that I accept: I got fifth today,” she said. “There are four girls who skied better than I did, and I’m really excited to analyze their skiing and analyze mine.”

Sports WRESTLING Pirates, NB will be at Phoenix From Page B1 The action starts at 4 p.m. Friday and picks back up at 10 a.m. Saturday. Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for students each day. Two-day passes are $6 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens. Class 4A Region 3: Marshfield and North Bend go against powerhouse Henley and the other schools from the Far West and Skyline Leagues on Friday and Saturday, when the top four wrestlers advance to state. The action starts at noon Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday. Marshfield should be able to improve on the two wrestlers who advanced to state last year, coach Travis Wittlake said. Thaddeus Nelson is the top seed at 126 pounds and Tyler Campbell is seeded second at 113. They were the team’s two qualifiers last year, while Cole Smith is seeded second and Izaak Grubbs fourth at 106 pounds and Cade Hite is seeded fifth at 113 pounds. Other Pirates with a good chance to qualify for state, Wittlake said, include heavyweight Kaleb Campbell, Tyler Gregory at 145 pounds and Taylor Dornbusch and Cesar Castro at 152 pounds. “I’m confident with five, but we could get 10 through,” Wittlake said. Marshfield has one of the biggest squads, with 20 wrestlers competing among the 14 weight classes. In five weight classes, Marshfield has to leave athletes home because it has a third wrestler, Wittlake said. “That helps a lot, especially in the team room because they have to earn their spot.” With a big group of talented eighth-graders coming in, the future is strong, Wittlake said. North Bend doesn’t have any seeded wrestlers, but coach Larry Workman is excited for his team. “What I’m most happy

Among the other Lakers, DJ Anderson had 12 points and seven assists, LaDarrell Mongkholtham had 10 points, D’Vante Howard scored nine and Jordan Willis had eight points and 13 rebounds. Williams and Anderson helped the Lakers stay in front by each shooting 8-for10 from the foul line. Zack K irschbaum led Lane with 17 points. SWOCC lost the first game against Portland. “They’re good,” Hoppe said. “They’re playing for (the title), too. They’re big, they’re strong and they’re physical. “We just need to be ready to go.”

The Bulldogs’ best hopes to qualify for state include Mark Deane (113 pounds), Nathan Mersino (126 pounds) and Aaron Wagner (170), Workman said. “They have some tough kids in their brackets,” he said. “If they finish strong, they definitely have a chance.” Workman views this season as part of the process of building the program, and said he was thrilled when the team got compliments on its sportsmanship during an event at Florence last week. “They’re a great group of kids,” he said. “I would not trade them for a state champion team.” Class 3A Region 3: Coquille is among six teams in the region competing at Lakeview, but two are powerhouse teams Glide and Illinois Valley. Several of the Red Devils also have a good shot at qualifying for state, with three wrestlers from each weight class advancing. Seniors Chris Elmer (160 pounds) and Austin Ross (220) are both trying to advance to state for the second straight year, along with sophomore Kody Courtright (120). Junior Seth Lambson (113) and sophomore Wyatt Yates (138) hope to qualify for the first time. Coquille’s other wrestler with a chance to qualify is senior Tristan Dixon, who has been to state twice, but missed nearly the entire season recovering from an ankle injury he suffered near the end of the football season. “He’s working hard,” said Coquille coach John Owens. The state meet starts next Friday at Memorial Coliseum in Portland and includes all five classifications. The meet is broken into three different sessions. Passes for the entire tournament are $35 for adults and $25 for students.
first place in the region with Umpqua by crushing the Lakers 118-58. The Titans shot 22-for46 from 3-point range and also forced 34 turnovers by the Lakers while giving up the ball just 13 times. “Lane looks really good right now,” SWOCC coach Mike Herbert said. Aminata Cole led the Lakers with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Meg Berry scored 15 points and grabbed seven boards and Yvonne Daniels had nine points and eight rebounds. Niki Duncan led six Titans with 25 points. Two others scored at least eight. The Lakers fell to 2-9 in South Region play and need a win at home over Portland to finish the season with a 14-14 record after a promising preseason was undone by injuries. “They’re still competing,” Herbert said. “They’re still excited. The sophomoes are excited to finish strong. “If we compete like we did against Umpqua and Chemeketa, we’ll be fine.”

North Bend’s Alyssa Bennett gets a look at St. Mary’s swimmer Alyse Darnall in a close 100-yard freestyle final at the District 4 swim meet Saturday. Bennett won with a time of 53.42. The two are expected to battle again at the state meet this week.
SWIMMING From Page B1 North Bend, meanwhile, has Alyssa Bennett seeded first in both the 100 and 200 freestyle, Cassie Dallas expected to score well in both the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke, Liliana Bennett a likely finalist in the 500 freestyle and two relays seeded either first or second. Alyssa Bennett said the team is in good shape, especially in the relays. “We cut time in both of them,” she said of North Bend’s effort in the district meet. “I think we can go faster at the state meet.” Dallas goes head-to-head with Marshfield’s Shaylyn Brownell in both of her individual events. Brownell is seeded first in each after breaking her own school record in the breaststroke and Shannon Hosack’s school record in the individual medley. The key for the Pirates in the trophy race likely will be getting all three relays into
the finals and sneaking a couple of individuals seeded outside the top six into Saturday’s finals — Kayla Sparkman in the 500 freestyle and Elyse Trendell in the 50 freestyle. Marshfield won its fourth straight district title — the first three coming in the Midwestern League — but hasn’t finished better than eighth at state with the current swimmers. The top four teams earn trophies. “I hope we get one,” said Bridget McCarthy, who swims on all three relays. “Any trophy would be an excellent way to end the season together.” “I think all the girls have worked so hard for it,” said Alyssa Hedgpeth, part of the school record medley relay team along with Brownell, Trendell and McCarthy. “I think it’s exciting.” Henley is in the trophy mix behind a large group of swimmers, while Sweet Homes hopes ride on a group made up entirely of freshmen and sophomores. La Grande has highly ranked swimmers
Stuntzner-Gibson eyes state titles THE WORLD While the focus for the Bay Area’s two schools will be the girls team races, North Bend and Marshfield also have a few boys to watch. North Bend’s Karl Stuntzner-Gibson is seeded first in the 200 freestyle and the 500 freestyle. Meanwhile, Marshfield’s only entrant in the boys meet, Spencer Fromm, is seeded seventh in the 500 freestyle and has a good chance to reach the final if he can drop his time some. North Bend also will try to get its 200 freestyle relay into the final, though the Bulldogs likely will need to drop a little time to get into the top six. in both the sprints and distance events. Marshfield coach Kathe McNutt can’t wait to see how her kids perform. “The good this is, a lot of our kids, I think we have some faster swims in them.” North Bend coach Chris Richmond feels the same about his group, and said it all
depends on how close races come out. He’s been on both sides of team races that came down to one or two points. “You never know what’s going to happen,” he said. “Like I told those guys, we’re state champions until somebody dethrones us. We’re going to give it our best shot and see what happens.”
Men plead guilty in 2011 stadium attack LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two men pleaded guilty Thursday to a 2011 beating at Dodger Stadium that left San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow brain damaged and disabled. Defendant Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty to one count of assault likely to produce great bodily injury. Co-defendant Louie Sanchez, saying he kicked
and punched Stow, pleaded guilty to one count of mayhem that disabled and disfigured the victim. Both were to be sentenced after a judge heard victim impact statements. Stow, a 45-year-old paramedic from Santa Cruz who attended the 2011 opening day game in Los Angeles between the Dodgers and the Giants, was beaten nearly to
death in a parking lot after the game. He suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled, requiring 24-houra-day care. The beating prompted public outrage and led to increased security at Dodgers’ games. A civil suit by Stow is pending against the Dodgers organization and former owner Frank McCourt. Sanchez and Norwood
were arrested after a lengthy manhunt that briefly involved the arrest of an innocent man. The two acknowledged their involvement during a series of secretly recorded jailhouse conversations. Norwood was recorded telling his own mother by phone that he was involved and saying, “I will certainly go down for it.”
Golfers endure fickle nature of Match Play Championship MARANA, Ariz. (AP) — Henrik Stenson would be the first to say how lucky he was to Play win the Match Championship in 2007. He was on the ropes in the opening round against Zach Johnson, headed for certain defeat, when he somehow saved par on the 15th hole and Johnson missed a good birdie chance. Stenson birdied the next two holes, won the match and never lost the rest of the week. If that scenario were to repeat itself this week, consider the plight of the following players from Wednesday’s opening round: ■ Graeme McDowell was 3 down with three holes remaining against Gary Woodland. He saw the Cadillac SUVs in position to drive him back to the clubhouse. He saw his agent on the phone, perhaps booking a flight. He saw Woodland’s ball headed for the flag on the par-3 16th. “I thought it was over,”
McDowell said. He thought wrong. Woodland’s tee shot took a big hop over the green and between two corporate suites. He took two shots to get to the green. Bogey. Woodland had wedge in hand when he pulled his approach to the 17th and had 8 feet left for par, which he didn’t have to putt because McDowell made a 12-foot birdie putt. And then Woodland went from one bunker to the other on the 18th and still wasn’t on the green after four shots. Just like that, the match went to extra holes. McDowell made a 6-foot birdie on the 19th hole and lived to see another day at Dove Mountain. “I’m sure he’s extremely disappointed right now — and I’m extremely elated,” McDowell said. “I’m surprised to be sitting here, having won. Yeah, I hit a couple of quality shots down the last couple of holes, but he had mistakes, as well. It’s a brutal format.”
■ Jason Dufner went 3 down with a bogey on the 10th hole, and Scott Stallings matched his birdies on the next two holes. The PGA champion was headed for defeat when Stallings made one too many mistakes. A sloppy bogey on the 14th hole and the 17th hole, along with Dufner’s clutch birdie on the par-3 16th squared the match. Stalling made one last error, coming up short of the first green in overtime. Dufner made a par and advanced. It was Dufner’s first time in three years making it out of the first round, and it required plenty of help. ■ Brandt Snedeker never led in his match against David Lynn of England, though he was never too far out of the match. Even so, the match was level when Snedeker faced a tough chip from the collar of the 18th green with hardly any of the putting surface between his ball and the cup. It was a marvelous chip to save par. Then, he had
another delicate chip to the right of the first green, against shortsided. He chipped beautifully to about 4 feet for par. He won with an 8-foot birdie on the next hole. “I played a great stretch of golf in there and a bad stretch, and I’ve just got to eliminate the bad stretch,” Snedeker. At least he gets to keep trying. ■ Factoring in conceded putts, Pablo Larrazabal shot a 68 and was on his way back to Spain. Ernie Els shot 75 and has a tee time at Dove Mountain today after beating Stephen Gallacher in 19 holes. Today, they all start over with 32 players — call them survivors — trying to make it to Friday. For all the comebacks (eight of the winners were trailing in their matches after 12 holes) and the 11 matches that went to the 18th hole or beyond (Sergio Garcia defeated Marc Leishman in 22 holes), the opening round went large according to form.

FRIDAY, FEB. 21, 2014 Your popularity and reputation continue to grow. Others are drawn to your sincerity and enthusiasm. As a result, you will be involved in many diverse and interesting events. Your experience, participation and accomplishments will combine to make this an exciting and fulfilling year. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You need a challenge. Explore new and complex subjects in order to quench your thirst for knowledge. Take advantage of any free time to read and expand your outlook. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Be careful what you wish for. Trying to emulate a phony lifestyle will not bring good results and can be costly. Be proud that you are a responsible individual who works hard. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Someone close to you may be feeling neglected. Spend time nurturing important relationships. Plan a trip or attend an event that helps bring you closer to the people you love most. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Maintain your position in the workplace by emphasizing your talents and ideas to your superiors. Doing so will help to dispel criticism from an opposing quarter. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Dedicate time to your family. Sharing hobbies, playing games or enjoying other entertainments will bring you closer together. Happy memories are what build strong bonds and encourage togetherness. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Remain calm and patient in your dealings with moody individuals. Take steps to ensure that slight differences of opinion don’t get blown out of proportion. A positive attitude will bring stellar results. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’ll be upset if things don’t go your way. Seeking advice from trusted relatives may help you to gain a new perspective. Don’t be afraid to admit you have a problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
— Financial matters take precedence. Ignore the pleas of those who want to borrow from you. Keeping accurate records of investments and expenditures is essential to good money management. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Unreasonable accusations or unfounded jealousy will cause tension between you and someone you love. You can avoid unpleasant situations by keeping your thoughts and emotions in check. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) — Stay clear of those who try to involve you in their private affairs. You have much to lose and little to gain if you take sides. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) — Don’t go over your budget. Spend time acquainting yourself with community events and local activities. You may be hesitant at first, but your social life will benefit if you participate. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Someone is withholding information. You will be able to learn all the details if you maintain your focus and ask pertinent questions. Increased career commitments will keep you busy. SATURDAY, FEB. 22, 2014 Your life will improve this year if you follow your intuition. Your ideas may seem outlandish to some, but your commitment and insights will win them over. Influential people will take note of your attributes, and you will meet someone who can help advance your career. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Consider your current position. Keep up to date with job opportunities through social media or newspapers. Carefully review your qualifications and update your resume to suit the job market. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Fix things you’ve been putting off. By freeing your time, you’ll be able to take on a project that interests you and could increase your earning potential. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t get involved in any new ventures. Stay close to home and nurture personal relationships. Elderly relatives would enjoy hearing from you. Your concern will be appreciat-
ed and could bring rewards. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You need a change of scenery. Don’t feel that it’s necessary to embark on a major excursion. Instead, make positive changes to your surroundings to add to your entertainment or sense of security. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You will be given extra assignments. Rather than get upset, make the commitment to do the best job possible, and keep your complaints to yourself. Your professionalism will pay off. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Your generous nature is upsetting your budget. You cannot buy love, so stop paying for everything and everyone. Chances are someone has ulterior motives and is taking advantage of you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Someone you deal with is not living up to a promise. An angry confrontation will only make matters worse. Do your best to find a diplomatic way of resolving the situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your mind is brimming with innovative ideas. Share your plans with close friends. You will accomplish a lot if everyone directs his or her energies to the same goal. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Keep your cash in your pocket.

An open mind will also help you gain freedom. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) — Consider and reflect upon a personal situation. Someone with whom you have dealings may feel you have been too demanding.You need to decide whether to back away or repair the damage. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Your intuitive and thoughtful nature will result in an interesting and rewarding friendship. While this is a positive development, don’t divulge too much private information too quickly.
