Serving Oregon’s South Coast Since 1878


Help wanted exploring our Community Vitality BY TIM NOVOTNY The World

COOS BAY — What kind of program do you think can revitalize Coos Bay and North Bend? Now is the time to share your ideas or get behind those of other community members. A process has been going on for several years that has laid the foundation for a potential South Coast resurgence. Now it is time, participants say, for everyone in the Bay Area to get involved.

For more than 10 years, the Ford Institute for Community Building has been offering assistance to aid rural Oregon communities in building community vitality. Their primary method has been through a series of training classes, first offered in 2003, called the Ford Institute Leadership Program. According to the organization’s website, “the program is based on the belief that vital rural communities develop from a broad base of knowledgeable, skilled and motivated leaders, a diversity of effective

organizations, and productive collaborations among organizations.” For the Coos Bay area, that effort has culminated with the arrival of Ford’s Pathways to Community Vitality program. After being accepted into the program, local leaders held a forum last year to get the ball rolling. “Instead of it being like the Leadership program, where it is heavy into the learning process — and process, process, process — this is action,” says local Ford Family Community Fellow Suzanne Adams.

Adams, along with Char Luther, is also a Community Ambassador/Trainer for the Ford Institute for Community Building. The two of them are now in full recruiting mode; looking for “action-oriented” community members to attend a May 1 forum and help decide on a plan of action for the community. The forum is the second step in this latest effort. The first step was a recently completed Community Vitality Inventory, which was basically a communitywide survey.

“They are asking us,” Luther said recently, “what we want to do. How do we want to focus as we move forward as a community?” It is hoped that the results of that survey, or inventory, will spark some lively conversation at the forum.But, for that to happen, they need some lively people to attend. “We are especially invested in hearing from youth,” added Luther. Adams says that their overall goal is to get as much cross-section SEE VITALITY | A8

stand. The measures will be up for a vote May 20. The county campaigns cut across some political fault lines, one farmer opposed to genetically modified crops told the Grants Pass Daily Courier. “People say it’s just a bunch of hippie organic farmers, but it’s not,” said Jared Watters, who describes himself as conservative and grows more than 1,000 acres of alfalfa and other crops in the Medford-White City area. “We’re conventional farmers.” He said he started growing Roundup-resistant alfalfa, but plowed it up when it didn’t meet expectations. He said he’s dismayed by the hundreds of thousands of dollars that agribusiness giants such as Monsanto and Syngenta are pouring into fighting the bans. Six major agribusiness contributors had given $380,000 to the

OSO, Wash. — Swooping over a landscape of unspeakable sadness and death, President Barack Obama took an aerial tour Tuesday of the place where more than three dozen people perished in a mudslide last month. He pledged a nation’s solidarity with those who are enduring “unimaginable pain and difficulty” in the aftermath of the destruction. “We’re going to be strong right alongside you,” Obama promised the people whose lives were upended when a wall of mud and water swept away the hillside March 22, and took with it at least 41 lives and dozens of homes. Obama first boarded a helicopter to survey the awful scene. Evidence of the mudslide’s power was everywhere: trees ripped from the ground, a highway paved with mud and debris, a river’s course altered. And in the midst of the awful tableau, an American flag flying at half-staff. Even as the president flew overhead, the search for bodies continued below. Two people were still listed as missing. Back on the ground, the president gathered at a community chapel in the small town of Oso, about an hour northeast of Seattle, to mourn with families of the victims. He met separately with emergency responders before speaking in a small brick firehouse about all he had seen and heard on a clear, sunny afternoon. “The families that I met with showed incredible strength and grace through unimaginable pain and difficulty,” Obama said. Then he offered them a promise. “The whole country’s thinking about you, and we’re going to make sure that we’re there every step of the way as we go through the grieving, the mourning, the recovery,” he said. Obama said few Americans had heard of the tightknit community of Oso before the tragedy but in the past month “we’ve all been inspired by the incredible way that the community has come together.” Firefighter coats hung on the firehouse walls as Obama spoke, with homemade signs above them reading: “We (Heart) Oso.” “Thank you Oso.” “Oso Proud.” Brande Taylor, whose boyfriend volunteered to work on the

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court appears to be highly skeptical of laws that try to police false statements during political campaigns, raising doubts about the viability of such laws in more than 15 states. Justices expressed those concerns early and often Tuesday during arguments in a case challenging an Ohio law that bars people from recklessly making false statements about candidates seeking elective office. The case has attracted widespread attention, with both liberal and conservative groups saying the law tramples on the timehonored, if dubious, tradition of political mudslinging. Critics say free speech demands wide-open debate during political campaigns, including protection for negative speech that may sometimes twist the facts. The high court is not expected

to rule directly on the constitutional issue because the current question before the justices is only a preliminary one: Can you challenge the law right away, or do you have to wait until the state finds you guilty of lying? But the justices couldn’t resist going after the law itself, pointing out that the mere prospect of being hauled in front of state officials to explain comments made in the heat of an election has a chilling effect on speech. “What’s the harm?” Justice Stephen Breyer asked Eric Murphy, attorney for the state of Ohio. “I can’t speak, that’s the harm.” Justice Anthony Kennedy said First “a serious there’s Amendment concern with a state law that requires you to come before a commission to justify what you are going to say.” The case began during the 2010 election when a national SEE COURT | A8

GRANTS PASS (AP) — Southern Oregon farmers are choosing sides in a pair of local campaigns to ban genetically modified crops. Ban supporters say pollen from fields of genetically modified organisms can contaminate organic farms, and they are worried about use of the herbicide Roundup, which GMO plants are designed to resist. But opponents say the modified crops aren’t much different from strains developed by cross-breeding over the centuries and that they shouldn’t be told what to grow. Last year, the Legislature prohibited county-level bans on genetically modified crops but made an exception in Jackson County, where a measure had already qualified for the ballot. Since then, a similar measure got on the ballot in neighboring Josephine County after a petition drive. Its backers say that if it passes, they will ask the courts to rule that the Legislature acted illegally and that the county ban should

NORTH BEND — Local author and restaurateur Wim de Vriend will give a reading and sign copies of his new book, “Everybody’s War,” at the Coos Historical and Maritime Museum in Simpson Park, North Bend, starting at 1 p.m. Saturday. “Everybody’s War: People Who Rebuilt Their Lives, and Enemies Who Became Friends, in the Long Shadow of World War II,” is a memoir and personal journal. Offering often-funny, always-unusual stories

about his customers, de Vriend ties them to his memories of occupied Holland during World War II. The book includes memories of citizens who lived through Nazi occupation, like Al Kampen, a 19-yearold farm boy in the Netherlands who helped a B-24 bomber crew escape capture by the Germans after crash-landing on his family’s farm. Also included are firstperson accounts of those who fought in the war, including the story of B-17 pilot Chester Kauffman,

Is law enforcement a volunteer option? Josephine County residents continue to learn what happens when they refuse to support basic levels of law enforcement — Oregon State Police troopers diverted from highway patrols to respond to crimes, vigilante squads patrolling outlying areas. The latest wrinkle: using volunteers to investigate crime scenes. Sheriff Gil Gilbertson says the program is still being developed, but he insisted volunteers would be trained to properly and legally process crime scenes. The idea is to start with burglaries, performing tasks including dusting for fingerprints, taking photographs and collecting other evidence. Two years ago, budget cuts forced the layoffs of 60 of the department’s 100 deputies and support personnel. It’s hard to blame Gilbertson for trying to stretch his dwindling resources by asking for volunteers. But at some point, you get what you pay for — or don’t pay for, as the case may be. District Attorney Stephen Campbell worries evidence handled by volunteers could be vulnerable to challenges in court from defense attorneys. That’s a valid concern. Beyond that, however, looms a larger question: If volunteers processing crime scenes lead to more arrests, but there is no room in the jail, what’s next? Volunteer jail guards? Somehow it’s hard to picture people lining up to do that job for free. Josephine County residents should consider that before voting on the jail levy in the May

Report on prison population offered good news A report last week from the state Office of Economic Analysis saying that state prison populations are expected to grow only 2 percent over the next decade was a shot of good news for taxpayers. Better yet, it offered additional evidence that the state is on the right track in its efforts to move inmates into community-based correctional programs, which typically are far more effective than state prisons, both in terms of the price tag and the rate of recidivism. The report concluded that Oregon’s prison population will grow by fewer than 300 inmates over the next 10 years. That 2 percent growth estimate is the smallest increase anyone in the state correctional system could recall. (It’s worth noting, however, that the projection still calls for the state to house more than 15,000 inmates by 2024.)

The upside for taxpayers: The revised estimate suggests that the state likely will not need to build a new prison near Junction City, as had been planned. Give the credit to House Bill 3194, passed by the 2013 Legislature, which reduces sentences for certain drug and property crimes. The measure could save the state some $17 million over the two-year budget cycle; the idea is to reinvest some of the savings into those community-based programs. Now that it looks as if House Bill 3194 is starting to pay off, it remains important that state officials fulfill their part of the bargain,by being sure that local jurisdictions have the resources to run effective correctional programs.

FDA should revise grain handling rules for brewers It’s a wonderful example of real-life recycling: A beer brewer buys barley, cooks it,

extracts the wort, which contains the sugars that will become alcohol, and gives or sells the cooked barley to a local cattle rancher. The rancher feeds the used — spent — grain to his cattle, which in turn wind up in the hamburgers at a local restaurant. From Deschutes Brewery on down, local beer makers recycle their spent grain this way, as do brewers around the country. Unfortunately, the federal Food and Drug Administration,hip deep in rewriting the rules aimed at keeping the nation’s food supply safe, last fall proposed new regulations that would put an end to the cycle. It would do so by dramatically tightening the rules governing storage and delivery of the grain. The Beer Institute, an industry trade association, told the FDA in a letter that the cost of putting the equipment required by the new legislation into an individual brewery could cost as much as $13 million — a prohibitive amount for a small craft brewer and many large ones. The alternative, meanwhile, is simply to throw the grain away. The industry’s reaction to the proposed changes was so strong that the agency has said it will redraw the rules, taking the brewers’ worries into consideration. The FDA does have good reason to be concerned about food safety. In the case of spent grain, however, the caution seems misplaced. The (Bend) Bulletin

Radical ideology run amok Pope Francis, your honeymoon with the Western press is over. Of course, media accolades and praise were never his motivation. In fact, he’s directly warned against the cult of celebrity that is in danger of missing the point: the Gospel of Christ he teaches. But when Rolling Stone put him on their cover earlier this year, the piece inside was actually a secularist libertine warning: Don’t disappoint us. Don’t be another one of those guys reading from the Catechism. And now the pope, the Holy See, will be appearing before a United Nations committee on torture. The appearance is voluntary on the part of the Holy See and normal for anyone who has signed the Convention Against Torture. And yet there is a disturbing ideological push on the U.N.’s part where Francis and the Catholic Church are concerned. Earlier this year the U.N.’s Committee on the Rights of the Child made accusations against Pope Francis based on misunderstanding, ignorance and politics, which undermine the credibility of the U.N.and betray its agenda. In 2003, the Boston Globe KATHRYN did the world — and the LOPEZ Church — a service when it exposed the depths of a Columnist culture where priests were moved around instead of turned over to authorities when they committed crimes. The U.N. bases its accusations on that culture, one that no longer exists, as independent audits make clear. The time and money and screening and training that the Catholic Church puts into protecting children today have made it a different world than the one the U.N. insists exists. Further, the accusations from the U.N. made it clear that there is a reason evidence doesn’t matter, because there’s a campaign at work: Church teaching on the complementarity nature of women and men — that we are made by God with an inherent dignity and a difference that makes sense and is ordered for love and procreation — is its problem.And this is the danger of secularism today. Cloaked in rhetorical tolerance, a tyrannical streak is a temptation. It made headlines in recent days when Pope Francis asked forgiveness from victims of abuse.To think this is isolated is to miss his papacy entirely. He’s being advised by Cardinal O’Malley of Boston, among others, who has been a healing pastor for a deeply scarred and scandalized people. Pope Francis has brought in lay people, abuse victims and independent consultants for further reform work and guidance. And the big picture of most everything Pope Francis is doing and saying is integral to authentic renewal. Scandal happens when there is no relationship with God, he has said. Anyone -and dear heavens, a priest or anyone trusted with the care and teaching of children — who perverts that relationship or overlooks evil (and illness) is most obviously not living the Gospel, but has rejected it. Priests who committed gravely evil acts were not being Catholics, were most clearly not being the tender fathers so many of the holy men I know in the priesthood today are — shepherding their flock in true relationship with Christ, knowing their own need for God’s strength and protection, welcoming others to Him. Everything Pope Francis has been doing since he was elected pontiff points to real Christianity. And it’s not simply being nice and good. It’s a radical self-surrender to a self-giving, sacrificial love for others out of the love of God.

Letters to the Editor Two more voters for Kudlac As an employer for both Coos and Curry counties, parents and grandparents of a family trying to succeed in this area, we are concerned about the direction the counties are headed. We have some issues in these counties, most notably a drug problem. This issue is not improving and whatever is being done is not working. We are voting for Shala McKenzie Kudlac for judge in Coos and Curry counties.We have known Shala for five years and her extended family for much longer. She has proven her commitment to this county and deserves your vote. Curry County needs energy, leadership and confidence in order to combat the problems it faces. We believe that Shala has the background, knowledge and experience necessary to move the county forward and protect its citizens. Bret and Dalia O’Brien Port Orford

Three leaders you can trust in If Bill Lansing, John Whitty and Joanne Verger offered to take over my personal financing, I’d be thrilled because I’d be in such capable, experienced hands! I know all three of these leaders to be honest, intelligent and knowledgeable in how to make positive things happen in this community and this state. All three have been respectably and successfully involved in business and the political arena. All three of these pillars of our community know how to get things done. Joanne Verger is politically savvy, has contacts and the “where-with-all” to make things happen. Bill Lansing is the former CEO of Menasha, currently sits on numerous boards where he has earned the respect and confidence of other leaders nation wide, and he was a moving force behind the new historical museum. John Whitty is a successful and respected local attorney who sits on various boards, and was very

instrumental in getting Bay Area Hospital built. And yet, this community spurned their offer to help direct LNG funding for local education. Their knowledge and their expertise were dismissed. I firmly believe our community is the worse for the rejection of these extraordinary citizen leaders. Marcia Mann North Bend

How long does it take to belong? Mr. Rob Wilson: In reply to your letter to the editor in the April 14 newspaper, my family moved from Southern California in 1940 after two years in the valley. I graduated from Pleasant High School. I moved to Coos Bay with my business partner Cliff Fredrekson in 1947 when we opened up Pacific Optical Lab, and I sold the business in 1988 (41 years). I have lived in Coos Bay 67 years and am happy living here. I know I am an outsider because I did not go to either Marshfield High or North Bend High but both of our kids made it through Marshfield High. Are you telling me that I should move back to California? Don Irvin Coos Bay

LNG construction won’t help us Jordan Cove has tried to sell their scheme to every coastal community from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. Do all these local governments and state governments listen to their people? Coos Bay was determined to be a hard luck town with no future because of all the timber exports. Why not exploit it? Stop and think a minute: 3,500 laborers crammed on the area below and to the west of the North Bend bridge.Boaters could not use the boat ramp there because it was too dangerous. We are looking at a boomtown mentality. This will be a concentration camp. These laborers coming in are not your church three times a week folks, they go from job to job. Speaking of jobs, If you are not

a certified pipe welder, pipe fitter or an engineer capable of setting up a power plant or other high tech, high skilled jobs there will probably be a few shovel jobs in the trenches. They will be bringing their own operators. So don’t count on many unskilled labor jobs. Once the plant is completed, it will be run by computers and robots. The whole mess stinks to high heaven. Another thing, they don’t have any money yet. The Chinese and Koreans will make them jump through lots of hoops before they turn loose any money. Or maybe when they get all the permits they will sell to a foreign investor. Go back to the beginning and rethink the whole thing. They need us, not the other way around. Don’t sell the Elliot. A modest surcharge of $45 or so per 1,000 board feet of raw logs shipped out of state would go far towards keeping schools and law enforcement financed. I’m pretty sure the timber corporations and their buyers can afford it. Jim Tucker Coos Bay

Coos Bay needs emergency vets No emergency veterinary service in Coos Bay? After my mother's dog was severely bitten by a large dog, we attempted to contact her longtime local vet for emergency help, after hours. No answer or emergency number offered on voice mail. So, just started calling all local veterinarians for service from somebody. Only one answered but they said they would not see mom's dog if it wasn't currently a client! The others did not have an emergency contact number either. Absolutely NO service offered in Coos Bay! So, I called Bandon Veterinary, my longtime vet, of which Dr. Baum answered personally. I explained my dilemma with not being able to reach my mom's longtime vet or any others in Coos Bay and asked for his advice which he readily and sincerely gave. He also mentioned that he is often inundated with emergency calls from Coos Bay residence, nights

and weekends, because folks cannot get their veterinarians to answer these calls! He's become quite disillusioned and concerned that people cannot get emergency service here, but due to his sincere dedication and oath to pet health, happily treats these emergency calls. We also received a return call from Dr. O'Donald in Coquille within minutes of leaving a message on his emergency voice mail. Most communities set up emergency services with all veterinarians in the area, rotating turns or offering a direct emergency number to leave a message. Why isn't this done in Coos Bay? The lack of emergency veterinary service is despicable and unacceptable, and can obviously be life threatening for your pet. Thanks to Dr. Baum's kind heart and dedication to serving the community, my mom's dog was saved. She will no longer be going to her longtime vet locally. Connie Martin Coos Bay

Trivia contest boosted library The Friends of the Coquille Library Foundation would like to thank the entire community for coming out and supporting our efforts to raise money for the new Coquille library at our Spring Trivia Contest on Saturday, April 12. A great time was had by all. Special thanks to Paul Jackson of Figaro’s for the generous donation of delicious pizzas, and the Eagles for tending bar. Without the support of our community and all the friends of the library we would never be able to move forward with our plans for a fabulous new public library for the citizens of Coquille. I would especially like to thank Friends of the Coquille Library Foundation board members Caroline Barr, Vicki Brunoli, Patti Choquette, Anne Conner, Stella Downs, Rich Fish, Jackie Green, John Gunther, Karen Murphy and Hugh Pinkston for their hard work and dedication to the board and our goals and mission.

State Married couple’s sex life has become all about the numbers DEAR ABBY: I have been married to a wonderful man for 30 years. Our marriage may not be perfect, but it’s quite good. My dilemma is this: My husband keeps track DEAR of every time we have sex and has a personal goal of 100 times a year. In 2013, he informed me that JEANNE we’d had PHILLIPS sex only 76 times, and that was not adequate for him. He was quite upset about it. Do you think tracking your sex life is normal, and what do you think about a couple married for 30-plus years having sex 76 times in a year? Is that normal? Also, keep in mind that he travels for business and is gone about 60 days a year. — PRESSURED DEAR PRESSURED: Your husband sounds like a college student who is striving to get 100 notches on his belt. Rather than obsess about the number of times you have had sex, the quality of the experience should be more important. Fifty GREAT times a year would be better than 100 so-so times, one would think. And no, I do not think your husband’s preoccupation is “normal� — whatever normal is these days. DEAR ABBY: After six years of unsuccessful fertility work, my husband and I were forced to give up. Last summer his sister offered to be a surrogate for us, and we’ll use a donor egg since I have none. We have told only a few people. We’re having an embryo transfer next week and thought we’d wait until after the first trimester to “announce.� But what is the proper way to do it when it’s not actually I who is expecting? And is there etiquette for having a baby shower in this situation? We’re excited and proud of this opportunity, but it takes a lot of explaining for people to understand and not be judgmental. This is the closest we’ll ever get to experiencing pregnancy, and I want to enjoy it to the fullest. — MODERN MOMTO-BE IN WASHINGTON DEAR MOM-TO-BE: Congratulations on your pregnancy. Because it takes explaining, I recommend you share the happy news with your family and close friends by telling them in person. That way, you can answer any questions they may have directly. When you want “the world� to know, you may decide to send a mass email or post photos on the Internet. As to having a baby shower — because this is a happy event you are celebrating and you will need things for the baby, I’m sure a friend will want to host one for you. Be sure to include your sisterin-law if she would like to attend. DEAR ABBY: My 18-yearold granddaughter is seeing a 30-year-old man. What can I say to let her know he is way too old for her? I don’t want her to hate me. — LOVING GRANDMA IN FLORIDA DEAR LOVING GRANDMA: I don’t think that telling your granddaughter the man is too old for her would be a good idea because it would imply that she is too young, and no 18-year-old wants to hear that. Tell her instead that you think she would have a lot more in common with someone closer to her age. This is particularly true if she is still in high school.

MEDFORD (AP) — Gold miners are not happy with proposed water quality rules related to elevated mercury levels in the Rogue River. The Mail Tribune reports miners, at a hearing Monday in Medford, said they are being blamed for a problem that is not their fault. Miners added that the suction dredges they use to filter gold from gravel on river bottoms also pick up mercury and remove it. A toxin, mercury is found in nearly all fish, but tests on resident northern pike minnow in the Rogue found levels 10 times higher than state standards. The source is not certain, but could be the soils or old mines. The state is on track to list 216 miles of the Rogue as mercury-impaired, leading to more stringent and expensive permitting for miners.

Man sentenced in California attack REDDING, Calif. (AP) — An Oregon man convicted of killing his aunt and wounding his uncle in a knife attack in Northern California has been sentenced to life in prison without parole. Shasta County Superior Court Judge William Gallagher said during Monday’s sentencing hearing that 32-year-old Cody Nash had shown no remorse. Authorities say Nash slit Candace Watson’s throat twice with a butcher knife and then cut her husband, Bob’s, throat while visiting

D I G E S T their Redding home in 2012. He was convicted of firstdegree murder and attempted murder last month. Nash’s attorney has said his client was diagnosed with schizophrenia and couldn’t control his actions. The Record Searchlight of Redding reports that Bob Watson had someone read a statement for him at the sentencing in which he called Nash despicable.

Mass honey bee dieoff in Sherwood SALEM (AP) — The Oregon Department of Agriculture says the thousands of honey bees found dead along Highway 99 in Sherwood may have been hit by cars. Department spokesman Bruce Pokarney says an investigator went to the site Monday and found about 30 commercial hives on a nearby lot with a vacant house. Pokarney says the only dead bees found were along the highway, not around the hives, leading the investigator to think a swarm may have been hit by passing cars. The investigator also sent some of the dead bees to Oregon State University, where an expert will check them for pesticides, disease and parasites.

A celebration of life was held for Mark Andrew Hixson, 39, of North Bend at 7 p.m. Monday, April 21, at Tiny’s Tavern in North Bend. Private cremations rites were held at Ocean View Memory Gardens. Mark was born Dec. 12, 1974, in Coos Bay to Steve and Judy Hixson. He died peacefully in his sleep in North Bend on April 18, 2014. Mark has left us to find a more peaceful place than what he could find in this world. Since his birth and until his death, Mark followed the beat to his own music. He had many adventures and experiences throughout his life. Mark did things his own way. Ultimately however, this aspect of Mark was part of his charm and one of the many reasons people wanted to know him. Mark loved music and surrounded himself with

His music collection was varied and he enjoyed playing and listening to music for hours, content with song and thought. The last six months of his life were a painful struggle for him and those who loved him. Cancer is a hideous disease. Mark’s tenacity allowed him to live long enough for all of us to say goodbye.

Get prepared one tip at a time The idea of emergency preparedness is a good one. Every family needs some kind of plan in the event of a kind of disaster that could disrupt the normal course of life. But where to start? Hopefully, these quick tips will do the trick to get you unstuck and on your way to being prepared. Water storage. You don’t have to live in EVERYDAY “hurriCHEAPSKATE c a n e ” country to get hurricane prepared. Disasters can hit a n y where, which means Mary water Hunt could be in short s u p p l y. For flushing toilets and showers, line 30-45 gallon garbage cans with those large contractor plastic bags available at home improvement stores. Then, fill the garbage cans with water. Most people forget that three weeks without electricity means three weeks of no water if your provider has not attached a generator to pump water to houses. Point person. Every family needs to identify a friend or relative who lives in another state to be their disaster point person, and then keep that person’s phone number and contact information with them at all times. Instruct all of your family members to call this person to check in with their location and conditions. Long-distance phone service is often restored sooner than local service. Imp orta nt pa pers . Scan your family’s important documents — birth certificates, passports, Social Security cards, insurance policies, property deeds, car titles, immunization records, pet medical records, school transcripts, business licenses, education degrees and tax returns. Now burn the files onto two CD’s. Keep one in a safe place and have a trusted friend or relative in a different state (your point person) keep the other disk. E m e r g e n c y c a s h . You need to have some of your Contingency Fund in small denominations of cash — $1,000 is reasonable, but any amount is good — in a safe place outside of your bank, such as a fire-proof home safe or other similarly protected receptacle, known only to you and one other person. In the event of a natural disaster that cripples utilities and services, you’ll want to have cash on hand. Get a go bag. Every household needs a “go bag”. This is a collection of items you may need in the event of a disaster that requires you and your family to be self-sufficient when all services are cut off. And because you may need to evacuate, your Go Bag needs to be packed in an easy-tocarry container such as a suitcase on wheels. Additionally, each family member needs to have a backpack that contains enough basic supplies to last for 72 hours — all packed and ready to go. Trunk it. Store a sweat suit, sneakers and a pair of old socks in the trunk of the car next to the spare tire. If there’s a flat tire, throw the sweats on over your good clothes, kick off your shoes and change to sneakers. Now you can change that tire without having to worry about getting dirty. Bonus: If the car simply breaks down, the sneakers will feel better on the way to the nearest service station. Would you like to send a tip to Mary?

Nation and World Material that washed ashore is being examined in jet search PERTH, Australia (AP) — Authorities say unidentified material that washed ashore in southwestern Australia is being examined for any link to the lost Malaysian plane. The search coordination center said Wednesday evening that police secured the material that washed ashore 6 miles east of Augusta in Western Australia. Its statement did not describe the material found. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is examining photographs to assess whether further investigation is needed and if the material is relevant to Flight MH370. Augusta is near Australia’s southwestern tip about 190 The Associated Press miles from Perth, where the President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe shake hands before having dinner at Sukiyabashi Jiro sushi restaurant in Tokyo search has been headquaron Wednesday.

itary and political partner, but the West's dispute with Russia over Ukraine threatens to cast a shadow over the president's sales mission.

Obama opens Japan trip at famous sushi restaurant TOKYO (AP) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday opened a fourcountry Asia tour aimed at reassuring allies in the region that the U.S. remains a committed economic, military and political partner that can serve as a counterweight to China’s growing influence. The president kicked off his trip on an informal note, joining Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a famous Tokyo sushi restaurant with hard-to-come-by reservations and a hefty price tag. Obama and Abe greeted each other warmly outside Sukiyabashi Jiro, the underground sushi restaurant run by 88-year-old Jiro Ono. The outing was unusually casual by Japanese standards and underscored the effort by both countries to strengthen the personal relationship between Obama and Abe. The two leaders will hold more formal talks Thursday, with Obama aiming to promote the U.S. as a committed economic, military and political partner. But the West’s dispute with Russia over Ukraine threatens to cast a shadow over the president’s sales mission. Relations between neighbors Russia and Ukraine remain tense nearly a week after both countries, the U.S. and the European Union

inked an agreement in Geneva calling on Moscow to use its influence over proRussian forces to have them lay down their arms and end their occupation of government buildings in eastern Ukraine. Each side accuses the other of failing to uphold its end of the deal. The White House, which lays the blame squarely on Russia and praises Ukraine for behaving responsibly, has said it is monitoring the situation closely and is prepared, without being specific about a timeline, to slap additional sanctions on Russia “in the coming days” if it fails to abide by the terms of the tenuous deal. The U.S. response in Ukraine has unsettled some Asian countries, leaving them to wonder how reliable a partner the U.S. would be if they ever faced a similar situation given their own sea and air disputes with China. Ahead of his arrival in Tokyo, Obama sought to reassure Japan that its security pact with the U.S. does apply to the islands at the center of a territorial dispute with Beijing. “The policy of the United States is clear,” he said in a written response to questions published in Japan’s Yomiuri newspaper before his arrival in Tokyo at the start of a four-country Asia tour. Obama said he opposes

“unilateral attempts to undermine Japan’s administration of these islands” and said the disputes need to be resolved “through dialogue and diplomacy, not intimidation and coercion.” Leaders in China will be closely watching Obama’s eight-day Asia trip, particularly his efforts to show a united front with Abe. Obama and the Japanese prime minister greeted each other warmly outside the sushi restaurant Wednesday night. They were accompanied by only a handful of close advisers, including U.S. Japan to Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice. The party was expected to be treated to Jiro’s multiplecourse, $300-per-person set sushi menu. The chef’s meticulous preparation was detailed in the 2011 documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” Obama’s trip is a do-over of the Asia tour Obama had scheduled last October but canceled in the midst of the partial shutdown of the U.S. government. As with last fall’s trip, the White House wants to keep the focus on Obama’s promised “rebalance” of U.S. policy toward Asia, after years of attention on the Middle East and the fight against terrorism. In Japan, Obama and Abe

are expected to discuss trade and security concerns, including China and North Korea, among other issues. Ukraine may be on the agenda, too; Japan backs existing Western sanctions against Russia for taking the Crimean Peninsula away from Ukraine. Japan also has provided financial support to Ukraine’s interim government. The U.S. and its close regional ally Japan are the largest economies among 12 countries negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free-trade deal with several Asian countries that could have served as a centerpiece for Obama’s visit. The U.S. had wanted to wrap up the deal by the end of last year, but the talks have stalled, with the U.S. and Japan remaining “at a considerable distance” over trade in farm products and vehicles, Japan’s economy minister Akira Amari told reporters Tuesday. No significant breakthroughs or announcements were expected this week. U.S. officials have said the talks will continue well after Obama leaves. “The betting is against it,” said Michael Green, senior vice president for Asia and Japan chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

Sherpas leave Everest following avalanche KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Dozens of Sherpa guides packed up their tents and left Mount Everest’s base camp Wednesday, after the avalanche deaths of 16 of their colleagues exposed an undercurrent of resentment by Sherpas over their pay, treatment and benefits. With the entire climbing season increasingly thrown into doubt, the government quickly announced that top tourism officials would fly to base camp Thursday to negotiate with the Sherpas and encourage them to return to work. But while Nepal’s government has been heavily criticized for not doing enough for the Sherpas in the wake of last week’s disaster, the deadliest ever on the mountain, one top official blamed the walkout on “hooligans.”

Gaza official: Israeli airstrike wounds 3 GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Hamas officials say an Israeli airstrike has hit the northern Gaza Strip.

US weighs clemency for inmates WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is encouraging nonviolent federal inmates who have behaved in prison, have no significant criminal history and have already served more than 10 years behind bars to apply for clemency, officials announced Wednesday. The initiative is part of a broader Obama administration effort to trim the nation’s prison population, ease sentencing disparities arising from drug possession crimes and scale back the use of strict punishments for drug offenders without a violent past. The goal is to create a larger pool of eligible prisoners the Justice Department can recommend to the president to consider for shorter sentences.

FM vows response if Russians are attacked DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — Russia’s foreign minister on Wednesday promised a firm response if its citizens or interests come under attack in Ukraine — a vow that came after Ukraine announced a renewal of its “anti-terror” campaign against those occupying buildings in its troubled east. Although Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov did not specifically say Russia would launch a military attack, his comments bolstered wide concern that Russia could use any violence in eastern Ukraine as a pretext for sending in troops. Large contingents of Russian troops — tens of thousands, NATO says — are in place near the Ukrainian border.

S. Korea ferry toll hits 156 as search gets tougher JINDO, South Korea (AP) — As the 156th body was pulled from waters where the ferry Sewol sank a week ago, relatives of the nearly 150 still missing pressed the government Wednesday to finish the grim task of recovery soon. But the work was reaching a new, more complicated phase, with an official saying divers must now rip through cabin walls to retrieve more victims. Looming in the background is a sensitive issue: When to The Associated Press bring in the cranes and begin Divers look for people believed to have been trapped in the sunken ferry the salvage effort by cutting up Sewol in the water off the southern coast near Jindo, south of Seoul, and raising the submerged vessel.

The number of corpses “Now we think we have to recovered bodies are taken recovered has risen sharply deal with this realistically,” for families to identify.

One of rents and low visibility were among the missing. “We don’t want the bodies them, Jang Jong-ryul, was finally able to enter the sub-

merged vessel. But Koh Myung-seok, spokesman for the government-wide emergency task force, said the work is becoming more difficult, and divers must now break through cabin walls. “The lounge is one big open space, so once in it we got our search done straight away. But in the case of the cabins, we will have to break down the walls in between because they are all compartments,” Koh said. The government has not said when it intends to begin the salvage effort, though it has said it will be considerate of families of the missing. “Even if there is only one survivor,” Koh said, “our government will do its best to rescue that person, and then we will salvage the ferry.” For some relatives of the missing, speed in recovering the dead is becoming more important than shrinking hopes that their loved ones might still be alive.

First lady announcing one-stop job site for vets WASHINGTON (AP) — Aiming to streamline employment resources for people leaving the military, the government is creating an integrated website that can help job-seekers create resumes, connect with employers and become part of a database of veterans and their spouses for companies to mine for skills and talents. First lady Michelle Obama was announcing the launch of the new Veterans Employment Center on

Wednesday at Fort Campbell, Ky., during a special veterans’ jobs summit organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Pentagon and the departments of Veterans Affairs and Labor. “Our service members haven’t always had the time or information they needed to prepare their resumes, to plot their career goals, to meet with employers and get the jobs they deserve,” the first lady said in her prepared

remarks. Mrs. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, have long been focused on the needs of veterans. The one-stop job-shopping tool comes amid an increase in Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans as U.S. participation in those conflicts has ended or winds down. Unemployment among veterans who have served since September 2001 stood at 9 percent in 2013, about 1.6 percentage points

higher than the overall civilian population. The website,, is the first online resource that combines information provided by a variety of agencies and employers. It will help veterans and military spouses build resumes, translate military skills into private-sector aptitudes and provide career and training data with the click of a mouse.

Security personnel search for clues at the site where senior Egyptian police officer Brig. Gen. Ahmed Zaki was killed after an explosive device placed under his car went off, in a western suburb of Cairo, Egypt, on Wednesday.

Bomb, shooting in Egypt kills 2 police officers CAIRO (AP) — A senior Egyptian police officer was killed after an explosive device placed under his car went off in a western Cairo suburb Wednesday while another officer died in a raid on a militant hideout in the country’s second-largest city, officials said. The deaths came amid stepped-up attacks against Egyptian police and military as militant groups wage an increasingly violent campaign following the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. In the Cairo attack, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Zaki was heading to work from his home in the 6th of October suburb when the bomb detonated under his car, wounding him critically. He later died in the hospital, security officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. Two conscripts were wounded in the attack. And in Egypt’s secondlargest city, Alexandria, Lt. Ahmed Saad was shot and killed during a raid on a mili-

tant hideout, officials said. Alexandria’s police chief Police Maj. Gen. Amin Ezzedin told Egypt’s state news agency MENA that suspected militants fired at the police force raiding their hideout. Ezzedine said one suspect was also killed in the shootout, and another was arrested. Two explosive belts, machine guns and homemade bombs were seized in the raid in the Borg district of al-Arab Alexandria. There has been a surge in political violence since Morsi’s overthrow in July. Al-Qaida-inspired and other militant groups have claimed most of the larger attacks on troops — attacks they say are meant to avenge a government crackdown on pro-Morsi and other Islamist protesters. Security forces have killed more than 1,300 Morsi supporters and detained another 16,000 — including the ousted leader himself — in a sweeping crackdown on Islamists.

Farmer Bruce Schulz told the Medford Mail Tribune that he grows both conventional and genetically modified alfalfa because some of his customers don’t want GMO hay. He said Roundup is safer than other chemicals, and he figures the yield of the herbicide-resistant crop will likely be double that of the conventional. “It doesn’t take a scientist to figure out which one works better,” Schulz says. If the ban is approved, he said, he’ll have to pull out a hay crop that can grow for six to 10 years if managed correctly.

COURT Continued from Page A1 anti-abortion group, the Susan B. Anthony List, planned to put up billboards accusing then-Rep. Steve Driehaus of supporting taxpayer-funded abortion because he voted for President Barack Obama’s new health care law. Driehaus, a Democrat who opposes abortion, claimed the group’s billboard ads distorted the truth and therefore violated the false speech law. Driehaus filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission, an action which prompted the billboard owner to decline posting the ads. The commission found probable cause that the ads violated

Because the 41-mile-long Rogue Valley is so narrow in many places, it’s difficult to avoid pollen that can travel for miles and poses a threat to organic farmers and seeders. As for the herbicide, berry farmer Sam Pennington said he worries about crops that don’t die when sprayed. “Eating that is utterly detrimental to humans,” he said. “I live on this Earth, too.” Dalton Straus said he wanted to grow Roundupresistant alfalfa this year, but he’s holding off until he sees the outcome of the ballot measures.

The Susan B. Anthony List then challenged the state law as unconstitutional, but a federal judge said the group didn’t have the right to sue because it hadn’t yet suffered actual harm. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati agreed. Murphy argued that the Susan B. Anthony List has not shown a credible threat of harm because the Driehaus case was ultimately dismissed before it was referred to a prosecutor. But Justice Elena Kagan wondered why a probable cause determination didn’t count as harm. For the average voter, “they think probable cause means you probably lied,” she said.

Pirates, Devils split in twin bill THE WORLD Marshfield and Coquille split a nonleague softball doubleheader Tuesday. The host Pirates won the opener 13-3 in five innings, but Coquille bounced back to win the nightcap 11-6, when the Pirates committed seven errors. “That’s been the story all year,“ Marshfield coach Brooke Toy said. “The games that we’ve lost, we’ve made more than three errors.” Mackenzie Johnson pitched a two-hitter with four strikeouts and no walks for the Pirates in the first game, while Marshfield pounded out 15 hits. K a te l y n Rossback had two doubles in the first game, while also driving in three runs and scoring three times. Abby Osborne and Carli Clarkson also drove in three runs each and Khalani Hoyer had two hits and three runs. In the nightcap, the Red Devils erased a 3-2 deficit with five runs in the fifth and four in the seventh. Makala Edgar had three runs and Britney Forbes and Ashley Thompson scored two runs each. Alaney Gallino had three hits and two RBIs. Jessica Kohl went 3-for-4 and drove in three runs for the Pirates, while Hoyer and Osborne had two hits each. Both teams have huge doubleheaders Friday, weather-permitting. Marshfield (5-4) hosts Douglas, which beat the Pirates in the Far West League opener and is tied for second with BrookingsHarbor at 6-2 following the first round of league play (South Umpqua is a perfect 9-0 after edging the Bruins 2-1 on Tuesday). “We’ve been looking forward to getting these two at home,” Toy said. Coquille, meanwhile, visits Glide in its first Sunset Conference games. With only one playoff spot available for the league, the Red Devils (7-3 overall) probably need at least a split against the Wildcats (5-1) on Friday to have a good shot at making the playoffs. Coquille will host the third game between the two teams later in the season. Siuslaw 7, North Bend 4: The Vikings were able to topple North Bend on Tuesday in a Far West League game called in the top of the sixth inning due to rain. North Bend was able to jump out to a 4-3 lead going into the fifth inning when Siuslaw rallied for three runs. After another run in the top of the sixth for the Vikings, North Bend never had its chance to mount a big comeback after the game was called due to rain.

“Five out of Seven.” When those words came out of Coquille football coach Dave Thomasen’s mouth my eyes popped open like a cartoon that just smelled a pie. Standing in Coquille High’s claustrophobic cafeteria watching a band of baseball newcomers scooping grounders off the hardwood, five out of seven wasn’t a good enough reason why this didn’t exist last year. See, Coquille had to cancel its baseball season because (among other reasons), not enough kids were academically eligible to play baseball. So I asked how hard is it to get a 2.0 grade point average, what I assumed was the bare minimum to play. He answered SPORTS back that the number wasn’t 2.0, more like “five out of seven.” Kids only have to pass five out of seven classes to be eligible for sports in Oregon. GEORGE Hypothetically a A RTSITAS student could get five D’s with two F’s, but as long as you meet a credit requirement that has you on pace to graduate at the start of the year, you’re allowed to play. It’s ridiculous, I haven’t heard a good reason for it and I feel it automatically lowers respectability in Oregon’s high school athletics. Fortunately, most South Coast schools have tougher standards than the one set by OSAA, including Coquille, which puts studentathletes on probation with weekly grade checks if they aren’t passing all their classes. So instead of criticizing the Oregon School Activities Association for what seems like a verily weak academic standard, I want to highlight the kids who get it right. The kids who read on the bus. The kids who worry about extra innings because it cuts into study time. The kids who really care. And we are not short on those kids’ stories up and down the South Coast. One of the three Coquille baseball players who had to sit out his junior year because of grades was honor student Drew Piburn. Piburn is a rare five-sport athlete and still manages a 3.74 GPA. He plays soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter and splits time between golf, baseball and AAU basketball in the spring. As upset as he was when he found out the season was canceled last year, if some of his teammates couldn’t apply a fraction of Piburn’s time management, how could he be that disappointed?

Tennis teams tie in Civil War BY GEORGE ARTSITAS The World

COOS BAY — The Civil War ended in a tie Tuesday. North Bend’s and Marshfield’s girls tennis teams finished in a 4-4 stalemate with the teams splitting the doubles and singles matches at the Boys & Girls Club of Southwestern Oregon. In year’s past, midseason Civil Wars were just exhibitions meant to sneak in a couple sets in preparation for the teams’ respective district tournaments. This year Marshfield is in the same tennis district with North Bend, meaning Tuesday’s match was a barometer for where the teams are as they move into the homestretch of the regular season, knowing they will be battling in the upcoming district tournament. “The girls have improved a lot and that’s the goal,” Marshfield head coach Aron Boesl said. “Our singles have been very strong all year.” One of the better matches on the day came from the headliners. The No. 1 singles matchup of Pirate Katie Boesl and Bulldog Allie West ended up going the full three sets, with Boesl winning 6-1, 4-6, 6-3. Boesl was trailing 2-3 in

North Bend’s Taylor Cuzzort returns a shot during a doubles match against Marshfield’s Abby Clough and Emily Sigloh on Tuesday. Cuzzort and her partner, Hannah Schandelmeier-Lynch, won in straight sets. the third set, but was able to win the final four games by working a powerful groundstroke. Boesl is coming off a season where she was upended in the Midwestern League district tournament. After qualifying for the state tournament her freshman year as part of a doubles team with her older sister, Boesl isn’t putting too much pressure on herself this

year as a junior. “I definitely want to go back to state, it’s just not the focus of my season the whole time because, otherwise, I wouldn’t play very good,” she said. “I would focus too much on that and be scared. But I definitely want to go back, it’s a big goal for me.” SEE TENNIS | B3


Pujols goes deep twice to reach home run milestone WASHINGTON (AP) — Albert Pujols smiled as he explained why he felt the need to apologize to his wife for hitting homer No. 500 so quickly after No. 499. She had planned to be there in person once he got within one of the milestone. He didn’t give her the chance. Pujols became the first major leaguer to get his 499th and 500th homers in the same game, connecting twice Tuesday night and driving in five runs in the Los Angeles Angels’ 7-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. He’s the 26th player in big league history to reach 500. “I went and made a phone call and I called her, and she was doing her nails. And everybody in the salon, I guess, was telling her, ‘Congratulations!’ And she was like, ‘Did you just hit your 500th?’

I was like, ‘I’m sorry,”’ Pujols said with a laugh. “She would have loved to be here with my kids and my family. She drives me every day to try to be a better person, a better player,” he added. “I would have loved to share this moment with her here.” Hitting like the Pujols of old, the three-time NL MVP delivered a three-run homer in the first inning and two-run drive in the fifth, both off Taylor Jordan (0-3). “I knew this year, it was going to happen, whether it was tonight, tomorrow, two months from now,” Pujols said. He also hit his 400th homer at Nationals Park. “I admire his ability and the way he goes about playing the game, and I have for some time,” said Washington manager Matt

Williams, who played against Pujols. “I just wish he’d do it against somebody else.” About three months past his 34th birthday, Pujols is the thirdyoungest to get to 500; Alex Rodriguez and Jimmie Foxx were 32. Pujols has eight homers in the past 13 games and leads the Angels with 19 RBIs. “That’s the Albert I’m used to seeing,” Angels outfielder Mike Trout said. The 500th homer went to leftcenter field on an 89 mph pitch with the count at 1-2. The ball was grabbed — and later given to Pujols — by a man who identified himself as Thomas Sherrill, a 29-year-old Air Force staff sergeant from Pomona, Calif.

Pirates, Devils tie at Sandpines THE WORLD

The Associated Press

New York’s Jacoby Ellsbury smiles after crossing home plate during the first inning against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Tuesday.

Ellsbury has big return to Fenway THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON — Jacoby Ellsbury doubled, tripled, drove in two runs and made a sliding catch in his return to Fenway Park, helping the New York Yankees and Masahiro Tanaka beat the Boston Red Sox 9-3 Tuesday night. Ellsbury received a mixed reception in his first game at Fenway since leaving the Red Sox to sign a $153 million, sevenMLB year contract with the Yankees. Recap Tanaka (3-0) allowed two runs on seven hits in 7 1-3 innings with seven strikeouts and no walks. His 35 strikeouts in his first four major league starts set a team record and he’s walked just two batters in 29 13 innings. Jon Lester (2-3) struggled after four outstanding outings, allowing seven runs in 4 2-3 innings. There were more boos than cheers from the crowd that contained a sizeable amount of Yankees fans when Ellsbury stepped in as the first batter of the game. With an 0-2 count, he drove the ball about 5 feet from the top of the center field wall. It was ruled a triple after a spectator reached out and interfered with it. Tigers 8, White Sox 6: Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer, Justin Verlander pitched seven solid innings and Detroit held on for a victory over Chicago. Cabrera was 4 -for-23 on this homestand before going 3-for-5 against the White Sox — including a homer and a double off Charlie Leesman (0-1), who was called up from the minors to start in place of the injured Chris Sale. Verlander (3-1) had little to worry about after allowing a first-inning homer to Jose Abreu. He allowed two runs and eight hits, striking out seven and walking two. Rays 7, Twins 3: David Price (3-1) allowed six hits in his first complete game of the season, David DeJesus drove in three runs, and Tampa beat Minnesota. Rangers 5, Athletics 4: Michael Choice singled in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning and Texas rallied to defeat Oakland. Josh Wilson doubled to drive in the tying run just ahead of Choice, who

began his career with the A’s. Luke Gregerson (0-1) took the loss after blowing his third save opportunity, giving up two runs on three hits. Gregerson appeared to have pitched out of trouble when he threw out pinch hitter Mitch Moreland at the plate on a safety squeeze by Leonys Martin for the second out. Martin stole second and scored when Wilson, who cost the Rangers two runs with a fielding error in the fourth, doubled. Astros 5, Mariners 2: Collin McHugh struck out a career-high 12 in his season debut, and Jason Castro, Chris Carter and Matt Dominguez homered to propel Houston past Seattle. McHugh (1-0) was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City for the start and struck out the first three batters to set the tone for his first win in 10 career starts. The right-hander didn’t walk a batter, giving up three hits in 6 2-3 shutout innings. Josh Fields pitched the ninth for his second save. The Astros have won six straight against the Mariners. Justin Smoak provided Seattle’s only offense with a two-run homer in the seventh inning as the Mariners extended their losing streak to eight games. Royals 8, Indians 2: James Shields (2-2) allowed two runs in six innings and Mike Moustakas hit a three-run homer to lead Kansas City over Cleveland. The Royals are 10-0 when scoring at least four runs. Blue Jays 9, Orioles 3: Brett Lawrie and Melky Cabrera each hit three-run homers in the eighth inning to power Toronto past Baltimore.

NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins 1, Braves 0: Jose Fernandez (3-1) matched his career high with 14 strikeouts in eight innings and combined with Steve Cishek on a threehitter as the Marlins shut out the Braves 1-0 on Tuesday. The Marlins gave Fernandez the only run he would need in the fourth. Giancarlo Stanton hit a one-out double to left field and scored on Casey McGehee’s single up the middle. Cardinals 3, Mets 0: Adam Wainwright threw seven neat innings before leaving with a knee injury, and Jon Jay hit a two-run single that sent the Cardinals to a victory over the Mets.


Left fielder Matt Holliday robbed Chris Young of a tying homer, one night after the Mets played some dazzling defense of their own to post a shutout in the series opener. Wainwright (4-1) faced the minimum through four innings and outpitched Dillon Gee. It was the second consecutive scoreless start for Wainwright, who tossed a two-hit shutout last Thursday at Washington. Phillies 3, Dodgers 2, 10 innings: Domonic Brown doubled home the goahead run in the 10th inning after a costly error by left fielder Carl Crawford, and the Phillies beat the Dodgers. Carlos Ruiz reached second base when his flyball to short left field glanced off Crawford’s glove as shortstop Hanley Ramirez nearly collided with the left fielder. Brown followed with a drive to the fence in left-center on a 1-1 pitch from J.P. Howell (1-2). Reds 4, Pirates 1: Johnny Cueto (22) tossed his second three-hitter against the Pittsburgh in a week and the Cincinnati Reds eased past the struggling Pirates. Cubs 9, Diamondbacks 2: Jason Hammel (3-1) pitched seven strong innings, Mike Olt hit a three-run homer and Nate Schierholtz drove in a pair of early runs to lead the Cubs to a victory over the Diamondbacks. Padres 2, Brewers 1, 12 innings: Chase Headley homered in the top of the 12th inning and San Diego relievers tossed six shutout innings in the Padres’ win over the Brewers. Huston Street retired the side in order in the bottom of the 12th for his seventh save after Donn Roach (1-0) allowed just one hit over two scoreless innings. Rockies 2, Giants 1: Nolan Arenado hit a go-ahead homer leading off the fifth and Franklin Morales outdueled Madison Bumgarner, lifting the Rockies to a win over the Giants. Troy Tulowitzki also added a solo shot for the Rockies, who have hit seven homers in two nights against the Giants. Morales (2-1) was masterful on the mound as he allowed five hits over seven innings, which matches the longest outing of his career. The left-hander’s only mistake was a hanging slider to Hunter Pence in the fifth. It was Pence’s second homer of the season. LaTroy Hawkins got the final two outs in a rocky ninth for his sixth save.

The Tigers’ third baseman carries the stigma of being a kid who skipped a grade. From Page B1 Halfway through eighth grade, Hamblin went up to “The more I thought his principal to say he “no about it, I realized that if longer felt academically kids can’t get their grades up, maybe there shouldn’t be challenged.” The next semester he was enrolled in the a team.

dent seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Pujols appears ready to reclaim his spot among the game’s elite hitters. He homered Friday and Saturday at Detroit to lift his total to 498, and now he’s reached the round number of 500 — a total that remains hallowed despite losing luster lately because so many players surpassed it. Of the 26 members of the 500-homer club, 11 reached the mark in the last 15 years, according to STATS. Gary Sheffield was the previous player to do it, hitting No. 500 in April 2009. “You don’t see 500, obvi-

From Page B1 “That pitch was supposed to be low and away,” Jordan said, “and I guess I tried too hard to get it there.” Pujols clapped his white batting gloves together a few strides before reaching home, then pointed both index fingers to the sky. Fans gave Pujols a partial standing ovation, and he tipped his red batting helmet as he approached the dugout. After heading down the steps, he came back out for a curtain call.

“That’s something you tell your kids when you get older. I don’t know the next guy who’s going to hit 500,” said Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs (2-0). “Nobody knows how to react. You don’t see it too much.” Teammates said Pujols told shortstop Erick Aybar before the game he was going to hit two homers. “Albert’s Albert. If he tells you something, he’s going to do it,” Trout said. “I’m not surprised he said that, because I’ve seen it before.” After a couple of downfor-him years with the Angels following 11 transcen-

Hamblin’s teammates, John Wilhite and Shawn Peters, have full-ride scholarships to a state college through the Evans Scholar program, which serves outstanding students who also are caddies. As low as the bar may be set by OSAA, around the South Coast the ratio of success stories to devastating ones like Coquille’s last year has got to be leaning towards success. At least better than five out of seven.

FLORENCE — The combined Coquille-Myrtle Point boys golf team matched Marshfield for the first time in a Far West League match this spring when the league held its weekly tournament at Sandpines on Tuesday. The Red Devils and Pirates both shot 347. Marshfield maintained a 59stroke lead in the overall standings with two matches to go. The regular-season champion earns one of the two berths for the state tournament, with the other determined at the district tournament at the end of the season. Sutherlin’s Tyler Franke again earned medalist honors with a 77. Marshfield’s Preston Luckman and Coquille’s

Terrence Edwards both shot 80, while Taylor Fischer, Coquille’s player from Myrtle Point, shot an 83. North Bend was third in the team standings with a 391, the Bulldogs’ best score of the season. Jared Davisson led the way with a 94. Sutherlin finished at 393 and Brookings-Harbor scored 434, led by Blake Butler’s 92. North Bend’s Brooklyn Dunham was medalist for the girls with a 107. Bandon again had the only complete team, and was led by Grace McMahon with a 111. Marshfield’s Jane Suppes was third overall with a 114. The league’s teams are at Umpqua Resort in Sutherlin next week before finishing the regular season at Bandon Crossings, the same site as the district tournament.

Jesse Golder cleared 11 feet to win the pole vault for Marshfield’s boys, while Isaac Smith won both the high jump and high hurdles. Taylor McKee took the pole vault for Marshfield’s girls. South Umpqua’s Trevor Duffy, one of the veterans who competed, had strong marks of 48 feet, 10 inches in the shot put and 135-11 in the discus. He also won the javelin. Unlike most of the Far West League teams, Camas Valley didn’t treat the meet as a junior varsity event. Caleb Lindsey soared 20 feet for Camas Valley in the long jump and Weston Tilton sped to a winning time of 52.01 in the 400. The Hornets also showed their impressive depth for a Class 1A school by fielding three solid teams in the 4x400 relay.

TENNIS From Page B1 West is in her first year at No. 1 singles after playing behind veteran Kylee Woodman as a freshman last year. Earlier the year she lost to Boesl in straight sets. Just taking the step of nabbing a set Tuesday let West see improvement in herself. “Playing No. 2 was fun, but when you play No. 1 that means you’re gonna play really good people — the best players on the team, you’re going against them — and they can build you up,” West said. “I’m learning more as I go. It’s just a new experience.“ Outside of West and Katie Boesl, No. 2 singles went to Collen Rayburn of Marshfield, who throttled Mackenzee Scott 6-1, 6-0. The other two matches both went to North Bend, with McKenna Reasor — a senior whom Bulldog head coach Dustin Hood calls “the real surprise this season” — beating Lindsey Brown 6-3, 6-2; and freshman Olivia Peck eeking out

a win against Jodi Zousel 6-2, 57, 10-7. Taylor Cuzzort and Hannah Schandelmeier-Lynch dominated Abby Clough and Emily Sigloh in No. 1 doubles 6-0, 6-2. Cuzzort and SchandelmeierLynch have been on a torrid streak this season since finishing as runner-up in state last year. Besides a humbling two-set loss to Marist, the two haven’t dropped a set and have yet to give up more than five games in a match all season. With how high their goals are this year, they admittedly are taking the regular season as time to fine tune for when the games matter. “I think of it like that,” Cuzzort said. “Districts is when it’s gametime. We’re really focused on this year making it to the final again when last year it wasn’t really like that.” Sc h a n d e l m e i e r- Ly n c h picked up on Cuzzort’s sentiment and repackaged her thought. “Last year was more about getting to state. This year it’s about winning,” she said. Marshfield was able to take out two of the other three

matchups in doubles. Braeden Kennedy and Sierra Banks beat Karen LaGesse and Bailey Lyon 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 at No. 2 doubles, while the No. 4 pair of Madison Brugnoli and Elizabeth Rayburn downed Abbey Knight and Renee Thompson in straight sets 6-2. 6-4. No. 3 doubles went to North Bend with Payton Smith and Raegen Spence getting a 6-4, 76 (8-6) victory against Shasta Banks and Katrina Garcia. With the district tournament coming up in early May, Hood feels good where the Bulldogs stand developmental-wise moving forward. “Girls are progressing,” he said. “I feel like we’re moving in the right direction. Hopefully with our trajectory, we’ll hit our peak at the district tournament and continue to rise through the state tournament.” Coach Boesl’s goal is a little different. “I just want the kids to be prepared,” Aron Boesl said “This year I want them to go in prepared, be ready to play and just let the chips fall where they may.”

Sports RECAP

Heading home, Wizards have Bulls reeling THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO— Bradley Beal came on strong late in regulation to finish with 26 points, Nene scored six of his 17 points in overtime and the Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 101-99 Tuesday to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series. Game 3 is Friday at Washington. “We’ve got to come out like we’re down 0-1 or 0-2,” said Beal, who scored 11 in the fourth quarter. “We’ve got to have that sense of urgency and just that drive and that m o t iva tion like we did ea rly. We’ve got to be able to maintain that lead. We’ve got to continue to stay poised.” The Wizards couldn’t maintain a 17-point firstquarter lead and had to rally from 10 down in the fourth. Nene scored the first six points in overtime after being held in check by Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah in regulation, and the Wizards hung on after Kirk Hinrich failed to convert at the foul line in the closing seconds of overtime. Noah had just hit two free throws when Beal missed a jumper with 18 seconds left. Jimmy Butler got the rebound and Chicago called time. Hinrich, a 76 percent free throw shooter this season, had a chance to tie it after getting fouled by Nene on a drive with 2.4 seconds left. But his first attempt hit the rim. He deliberately missed the second, and Trevor Ariza grabbed the rebound to seal the win for Washington.

NBA Recap

“I went up there thinking I was going to knock them down,” Hinrich said. “Tonight, I just couldn’t do it. However, I really felt that I should’ve made the layup.” D.J. Augustin led Chicago with 25 points but cooled off late in the game with Ariza guarding him. Taj Gibson had 22 points and 10 rebounds. Noah added 20 points and 12 boards, but the Bulls find themselves in a huge hole after dropping two at home. They blew a 13-point lead in Game 1 and couldn’t hang on after rallying in this one. Both times, they struggled in the fourth quarter, and coach Tom Thibodeau bristled when asked if he might switch up his lategame rotation. “We look at everything,” he said. “Unreal.” John Wall had 16 points and seven assists for Washington. The Bulls appeared to be in good shape when they were leading 87-77 five minutes into the fourth. They were still leading, 91-85, when Beal shot the Wizards back into the game. He nailed a 3-pointer that made it 91-88 and added a floater to make it a one-point game. Then, with a chance to put Washington ahead, he hit 1 of 2 free throws with 52.9 seconds left to tie it at 91. Both teams had opportunities to win it in the closing seconds but couldn’t convert. “I think we did a great job staying calm and composed,” Wall said. “Early in the season, we would get rattled and guys would try to make plays one on one on their own. Tonight, we trusted in our offense like we’ve been doing.” Raptors 100, Nets 95:

Washington Wizards guard John Wall, left, and Bradley Beal celebrate the Wizards’ 101-99 win as Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich walks off the court after missing two free throws during the overtime period of Game 2 in an Eastern Conference opening-round playoff series on Tuesday in Chicago. DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 15 points and 14 rebounds and Toronto evened its first-round playoff series with Brooklyn at one game apiece. Amir Johnson scored 16 points and Kyle Lowry had 14 as the Raptors rebounded from a 94-87 loss in Game 1. It was Valanciunas’ second straight playoff doubledouble. Joe Johnson scored 18 points, Deron Williams had 15 and Mirza Teletovic 14 for the Nets, who will host Game 3 on Friday night. Hampered by foul trouble throughout the game, Brooklyn’s Paul Pierce went 2 for 11 from the field, including 0 for 6 from 3point range. He finished with seven points. Kevin Garnett scored 13 points and Shaun Livingston had 12 for the Nets, who led 66-64 heading into the fourth and couldn’t take advantage of 21 Toronto

turnovers. Pacers 101, Hawks 85: Paul George had 27 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, leading Indiana to the victory. The Pacers and Hawks are tied at a game apiece heading into Game 3 in Atlanta on Thursday. Reserve Luis Scola added 20 points and seven rebounds for the Pacers. George Hill had all 15 of his points in the second half. Indiana appeared to be in trouble when it trailed 38-27 in the second quarter and was down 52-48 at halftime. But the Pacers stormed into the lead with a 31-13 third quarter. Indiana grabbed control with a 25-2 run that carried over into the fourth quarter. George was especially effective even though he spent much of the night defending Hawks point guard Jeff Teague, who had 14 points. Paul Millsap finished with 19 for Atlanta.

THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 2014 Your keen interest in helping others will come to the forefront this year. You will have to decide which among many options will be the most valuable. By developing a friendship with an older person, you will gain knowledge, expertise and profound perception. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t get drawn into any arguments. Even though things may not work out as planned, you should accept the changes happening around you. Compromise will eventually lead to victory. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You are on an upward trend right now, so enjoy the ride. If you take advantage of your wealth of experience, nothing will hold you back. Embrace the future.

BRIDGE Jean Nidetch, a co-founder of Weight Watchers, said, “It’s choice — not chance — that determines your destiny.” At the bridge table, sometimes chance does determine your destiny. For example, when you are in a contract that depends solely on a finesse. But much more often, your choices are the determining factor. In today’s deal, West had two choices on the first round of the auction: to make a takeout double or to overcall one no-trump. Here, the double would have worked much better,

because it would not have placed all of the missing honors in his hand. But West preferred one no-trump because it defined his hand strength much more accurately than double. Against four hearts, West led the diamond queen. How did South plan the play? North’s decision to jump to three hearts worked well. Anything less and his side probably would not have reached game. Declarer was faced with four potential losers: one heart and three clubs. And since only 16 points were missing, West was marked with the heart king and club ace. South saw that his only chance was an endplay. After taking the first trick, he cashed his heart ace, relieved to see East follow suit. Then declarer cashed his other top diamond and dummy’s top spades, ruffed the spade five in his hand, and exited a trump. West won with his king, but had no riposte. If he had shifted to clubs, South would have scored his king. But when West led the diamond jack, declarer discarded a club from the board and ruffed in his hand. He then claimed, conceding two club tricks.
