NB School District acquires church property BY CHELSEA DAVIS The World
NORTH BEND — The North Bend School District is expanding its footprint. The North Bend schools budget committee received something unexpected during its second hearing last month: a letter from North Bend’s First United Methodist Church offering to hand over the church property at 2289 Meade St. for just $1, plus any closing costs. The church was destroyed by an
accidental fire in August 2012. “They’re turning tragedy into something that can be really great,” said school board chair Megan Jacquot at Monday’s board meeting. Hillcrest Elementary sits across the street from the church property. The Rev. Laura Ann Beville, pastor at North Bend First UMC, credits the church’s long-standing relationship with the school as the reason for essentially donating the property. “From providing teachers with
school supplies at the beginning of the school year, to providing coffee for staff on the first day of school, the members of First United Methodist Church, North Bend, have appreciated the relationships that we have fostered over the years with teachers, staff, and students,” Beville wrote. Beville has led the North Bend congregation since July last year after the Rev. Jerry Steele was transferred to the Cottage Grove United Methodist Church and the Hope United Methodist Church in Drain.
“They (the congregation) just felt like that was the right thing to do, to offer that property to the school board and to have them utilize it however it can best benefit the children of North Bend,” Beville said. North Bend schools Superintendent Bill Yester isn’t sure what the school district will do with the extra space. Hillcrest teachers and staff have used the church parking lot for overflow parking for years. “It’s really up in the air right now what would happen to it,” Yester
said. “I think right now we’re going to mainly use it as parking lot facilities, then ... we’re going to try to do something with it, maybe expand Hillcrest.” The school district was turned upside down this year, with grade reconfiguration, Lighthouse School’s move, administrative changes and a new superintendent. While new, low-cost property is good news, school officials won’t know what to do with it for awhile. SEE CHURCH | A8
Lawmakers push unified veterans’ bill
Made in the shade
Only three Republican senators voted against the measures ■

shot down in World War II over the Pacific. Later, he decided to jump from a plane of his own accord and marked his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays by skydiving. He said on his 85th birthday that he’d like to do it again on his 90th. Thursday’s jump would be his eighth. Other birthday festivities included a private dinner with more than 200 relatives and friends, including some from his White House days: press secretary Marlin Fitzwater, White House counsel Boyden Gray
WASHINGTON — After two overwhelming votes in two days, members of Congress say they are confident they can agree on a bill to improve veterans’ health care and send it to the president’s desk by the end of the month. The Senate easily approved a bill Wednesday to help shorten wait times for thousands of military veterans seeking medical care, a day after the House unanimously adopted a similar measure. The Senate bill would authorize about $35 billion over three years to pay for outside care for veterans, as well as hire hundreds of doctors and nurses and lease 26 new health facilities in 17 states and Puerto Rico. The House would spend about $620 million over the same period. Just three lawmakers — all Republican senators — voted against the veterans measures, compared with 519 lawmakers who voted in favor. Opponents said the Senate bill was a “blank check” to spend billions of dollars with little or no way to rein it in. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, said the overwhelming Senate vote spoke for itself. The 93-3 tally came after the Senate voted 75-19 to waive normal budget rules and declare the bill an emergency. “I think we’ve shown that we can overcome partisanship and move quickly on a very important issue,” Sanders said, adding that he hopes to bring a unified House-Senate bill to a vote as soon as next week. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of House Committee Veterans’ Affairs Committee, also was optimistic. Many of the provisions included in the Senate bill “are based on ideas that have already cleared the House, so I’m hopeful that both chambers of Congress can soon agree on a final package to send to the president’s desk,” Miller said. The White House said Wednesday that President Barack Obama supports the Senate bill. “Our No. 1 priority is getting veterans the care they’ve earned,” the White House said in a statement. “To do that, we need to make sure that the problems identified at VA medical facilities get fixed.” The legislative effort comes as the FBI revealed it has opened a criminal investigation into the VA, which has been reeling from allegations of falsified records and treatment delays for veterans. FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that the investigation was being led by the FBI’s field office in Phoenix, which he described as the “primary locus of the original allegations” being investigated by the VA’s Office of Inspector General. “We’re working with the VA IG to follow it wherever the facts take us,” Comey said. The inspector general said in a report last month

Ex-president to make parachute jump
F o r m e r President George H.W. Bush will make a parachute jump today on his 90th birthday.
KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush can no longer use his legs, but he isn’t letting that stop him from keeping a vow he made five years ago: to jump from an aircraft on his 90th birthday, which is Thursday. “It’s a wonderful day in Maine — in fact, nice enough for a parachute jump,” the nation’s 41st president announced on Twitter. Bush intends to jump from a helicopter with a retired member of the Golden Knights, the Army’s parachute team, near his summer home on the Maine coast, spokesman Jim McGrath said.
The announcement was kept secret until the last minute, partly to give Bush himself the option of bagging it. The forecast Thursday called for clouds and scattered showers across southern Maine. McGrath said Bush likes both a surprise and an adrenaline rush. “It’s vintage George Bush,” he said. “It’s that passion for life. It’s wanting to set a goal, wanting to achieve it. I’m sure part of it is sending a message to others that even in your retirement years you can still find challenges.” The first time Bush jumped from an airplane was when his plane was

Dean Hall, of Gresham swims in the Willamette River near Corvallis on Monday during his attempt to swim from Eugene to Portland at a rate of about 10 miles a day.

and people need to get out and start having fun on it.” Promoting the Willamette is one reason Hall is swimming its length, but it’s not the main reason. His first goal is to show cancer patients they can still get out and live their dreams — and to raise money and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society while he’s at it. “I’m just an ordinary guy,” he said. “If I can swim 184 miles, just about
CORVALLIS (AP) — Dean Hall of Gresham has heard the warnings about how swimming in the Willamette might be hazardous to his health. As someone battling both leukemia and lymphoma, the 54-year-old took them seriously. But ever since the idea came to him, he has remained determined to swim the entirety of the 184-mile river.
He started last week and said he has been, both literally and figuratively, swimming in miracles ever since. “Swimming in Miracles” is the title Hall has chosen for his journey, which he figures he’ll wrap up around June 23 in Portland. He started at Alton Baker Park in Eugene and swims approximately 10 miles per day, taking Sundays off to rest. “It’s such a beautiful river. And we see no one on it,” he said. “It’s one of Oregon’s greatest natural resources,

Summertime blues for teen job seekers Our view Recent gains in employment have bypassed our youth.
What do you think? The World welcomes letters. Email us at email@example.com.
School’s out for the summer. And teens should be pounding the pavement (and their computer keyboards) looking for a job. Unfortunately, they’ll have a harder time of it. According to a new report from the state of Oregon Employment Department, “Endangered: Youth in the Labor Force,” published last month, youth ages 16 to 19 suffer an unemployment rate of 27.4 percent, nearly triple the overall unemployment average. Young adults fare almost as poorly with an unemployment rate of 12.5 percent. Additionally, young people spend more time unemployed than the average. And
what’s happening in Oregon is happening across the nation. Ironically, Oregon has added tens of thousands of new jobs since the Great Recession, but our youth are being left behind. There are a couple of reasons for that, according to state employment economist Nick Beleiciks. First, older workers are now more willing to take the kinds of jobs that teenagers used to do: service industry and restaurant jobs — and employers are more than happy to hire them. Second, young people have “gotten the message,” Beleiciks said, that more education leads to better job
pay and security in the future. So, more youth are intentionally spending more time in the classroom. The situation has its pros and cons, according to the report. On the upside, young unemployed can spend more time in study, in athletics or in volunteer service to the community. On the downside, young wannabe workers delay developing vital self-sufficiency skills and a work ethic, besides the fact that their wallets are empty. Most of us generally agree that a teenager who wants a job should have a good shot at finding one. That’s going to mean targeted effort to counteract the trends outlined above. Local Workforce
Investment Boards are offering some solutions through job fairs, partnering with school districts and community colleges and summer employment programs. And the report also calls for funding of the Oregon Youth Employment Program, created by the Legislature in 2011 but never funded. This program would leverage public sector investments to encourage private sector hiring. Having a job is part of becoming a contributing member of any community. And our youth desire and deserve that opportunity. The entire report is at http://www.qualityinfo.org/ pubs/youth.pdf.
The hero and the bad guys On a Saturday, Bowe Bergdahl was a hero, and the five members of the Taliban being freed in exchange for him were the worst of the worst. By the end of the week, it seemed that neither is actually true. The parade in Bergdahl’s Idaho hometown was canceled. Four of the five aren’t nice guys, but they aren’t war criminals, either. As for Bergdahl, I don’t pretend to know whether he deserted his unit. That is a question that can only be answered in a properly and fairly conducted court-martial. But the account that broke my heart was the interview with the widow who had only just learned that it was while he was out looking for Bergdahl that her husband was killed. She was pregnant with their second child at the time. I don’t know how you explain that to your kids, especially when they are old enough to understand. And of course, what made it so much worse is that we really wanted a happy ending to this story. I was watching the coverage on Saturday in the green room at Fox, Bruce and Tammy reminded me of all the questions that had been raised in the past about Bergdahl’s disappearSUSAN ance. Jake Tapper had ESTRICH already tweeted about it. It was there. And if you Columnist listened to the coverage clearly or read the whole story, it was there: the continued uncertainty as to how it was that Bergdahl was seized. But who listened so closely? The Army promoted him twice. They must know. Besides, I wanted to be happy for Jani and Bob. Saturday belonged to Bowe’s parents. They lived through every parent’s nightmare, and then after years of pain and grief, they got the call. Their son was coming home. I defy you to find a mother who did not relate to Jani Bergdahl, who did not want to share her joy. To a mother, it’s worth five of the worst of the worst or, as John McCain put it, “the hardest and toughest of all.” Well, maybe not so hard and tough. Three of the five, it is now being reported, were political officials during the period that the Taliban ruled and were thought to be among the moderates in the Taliban government; one of them was a student working for a relative, who offered to help the United States after we came in, and we arrested him instead. Another was a midlevel police official. One, the former army chief of staff, looks to be among the worst and is accused of war crimes. But in terms of his likely role in the Taliban today, even he is more than a decade out of date, and as some of the experts have not so charitably put it, all of these guys are old, at least in terrorist terms. So should the administration have done the swap? Probably. But like so much of our politics today, the answer isn’t very satisfying. It’s important to send the message to our soldiers that we leave no one behind. Bergdahl deserves his day in court, at least, and until proved guilty, he is an American soldier whom we are all bound to support. On the bad guys, the hardest question, as to four of the five, is not whether we are endangered by their release, but whether this is whom we have been keeping Guantanamo open to detain. Why? As to the fifth, the really bad guy, my assumption, which the reports seem to confirm, is that he was the price of the deal. You want to get your soldiers home? You give up bad guys. Ask Israel. War is an ugly business. Not much to be happy about. The left and right can scream at each other, but neither side has great answers. It is what it is.
Letters to the Editor LNG risk less than car accidents I've noticed a recent upsurge in letters complaining about the danger that Jordan Cove would subject area residents to. I think that it is time to remind everyone that any danger caused by Jordan Cove would be a small fraction of the danger we presently face from possible automobile accidents. If Jordan Cove is built, the total danger we all face would be increased by such a small amount that it truly would not be worth worrying about. I suggest to the worriers that they are causing themselves unnecessary pain by worrying about Jordan Cove.

Time to proudly wave the flag On June 14, there will be a flag retirement ceremony for everyone at Ferry Street Park in North Bend. Anyone having a damaged American flag that they wish to retire is welcome to attend. God (oops) forbid that anyone who belongs to one of those God-hating, bark-eating, treehugging, flag-stomping, Bible-burning, cross-hating, church-burning, anti-American organizations tries to rain on our parade. June 14, 1916, President
Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation declaring Flag Day, and again in 1949, after having been lobbied by the BPOE very heavily, President H.S. Truman (he himself being a member of the BPOE) signed an act of Congress making June 14 a national holiday, Flag Day. This is a much hollowed day for all who have given so much for this great country, either by having served in any of our armed services or by the simple act of just being able to vote in this beautiful and free land, and this, our American Flag, represents all that. God bless America. Robert A. Wilson Coos Bay

CASA volunteers vital for foster kids Your Views
BY DAN HORTSCH The setting: A mother and a father, not married, have three children, two boys and a girl. The mother is addicted to methamphetamine. The father is an alcoholic who gets into occasional small-time legal trouble. The children suffer the effects of their parents’ weaknesses. The three siblings live an unstructured life, and it shows in their hyperactive behavior. Or take this situation: A father sexually abuses his toddler son. Both the father and the mother are meth addicts. The child’s father is sentenced to prison, and his mother, knowing that she failed to protect her son, gives him up to the state for adoption. The adoptive parents, facing a challenging situation, turn the boy back to the state’s custody. He has been horribly abused and rejected, and now he is rejected again. As with those three children in the other broken family, the boy’s future is uncertain. In addiction, he has been damaged deeply and doesn’t know whom he can trust. All of these children end up in Oregon care. The foster Department of Human Services provides therapy and temporary care while seeking a permanent home for the children. Unfortunately, the stories of these children are not unusual.We read and hear about the worst cir-
cumstances, children starved or beaten badly, and sometimes killed. However, most cases of abused and neglected children do not end up in the news. In fact, the numbers of such children are startling. At any one time, according to figures from 2012, the latest complete numbers available, nearly 12,400 Oregon children are in DHS custody. Many might be living with their parents while still in custody, while others are in foster or residential treatment care. DHS caseworkers are not alone in seeking to find the best possible solutions in these cases. In fact, the children often have an entire team working for the best possible outcome, whether that means returning to the permanent care of their parents, living in foster care with relatives or with other foster parents, or finding a new home through adoption. Team members, in addition to the state caseworker, might include therapists working with the children and the parents; county mental health coordinators; the children’s lawyer, appointed by the state to guard
their legal rights and their general needs; foster parents; the parents themselves, if they are working on their issues; and a CASA volunteer. CASA? What is that? CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates.The CASA organization is a private, nonprofit agency with staff members supporting hundreds of volunteers in Oregon alone. The volunteers are trained to deal with the often delicate situations in the families and, their primary assignment, to look out for the best interests of the children. Once volunteers have completed training, they are sworn in by a circuit judge and appointed to a particular case. According to the Oregon CASA Network, an organization linking 32 local CASA groups that cover every corner of the state, more than 1,900 volunteers work with children through CASA. They serve more than 5,100 children. CASA volunteers come to know every aspect of a case. They become trusted figures in the children’s lives as they focus on seeing that the children are safe in their foster or biological homes
and on monitoring the case in court until it is resolved in timely fashion. Typically, a case might call for 10 to 20 hours’ time a month, including a monthly visit with the children. Volunteers also write a report for each court hearing, a topic covered in the training. Judges, it should be noted, welcome the additional, outside perspective. Volunteers do not fall into any one category. They are women and men who come from myriad backgrounds, but they share an interest in looking out for vulnerable children. The volunteers do not work alone as they have their CASA supervisors, professionals in child services, to guide them. Not surprisingly, more volunteers are always needed. Learning more about the role of the volunteer and how to become one is easy. Anyone interested in information on volunteering can visit locally www.orcca.us/index.php/programs/casa.html or call 541435-7080, ext. 350. As Garrison Keillor, the humorist and writer, said, “Nothing you do for a child is ever wasted.” Dan Hortsch has been a CASA in Oregon since 2006.

State Neighbor reaching out for relief should have his hands slapped DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend and I live next to a married couple our age we have befriended. Unfortunately, the husband has been making unwanted advances toward my girlfriend. Being friendly with them both, we have kept it to ourselves so as not to hurt the wife. She’s ill and has DEAR been in and out of the hospital. The husband is approaching my g i rl f r i e n d saying he n e e d s “stress JEANNE relief ” PHILLIPS because his wife is ill. We now feel something needs to be said to the wife, but we still have to live next door to them. We’re at a loss. What’s the best way to handle this? — HAD ENOUGH IN FLORIDA DEAR HAD ENOUGH: The next time this man hits on your girlfriend, she should tell him bluntly that it’s not her job to “relieve his stress.” That is his responsibility. She should also tell him if it happens again she’ll tell you AND his wife what he’s up to. As to being friendly with this couple in the future, FORGET IT. That bridge was burned the first time he stepped out of line. DEAR ABBY: I have a colleague who’s a drama queen. Perhaps I’m a little bit guilty, too, but “Sharon” talks excessively about her personal life. There’s the boyfriend who doesn’t support her and their 2-year-old child financially or emotionally, her mom who suffers from many medical conditions, and her neighbor whose daughter was murdered some months ago. Sharon’s life seems to be a magnet for drama. My colleagues and I have lent our ears and our shoulders to cry on. I have also tried to advise her (like you do) to no avail. I have now reached my limit. Is there a tactful way to deal with her? We work in proximity at least half the time, so total avoidance is not possible. — INUNDATED IN HAWAII DEAR INUNDATED: If Sharon asks you for advice, tell her you don’t have any more to offer. And if she starts dumping on you, handle it by saying kindly, but firmly, that you need to work and don’t have time to listen. If you say it often enough, Sharon will find someone else to listen. Trust me. DEAR ABBY: Do you have any advice for fathers who don’t listen to you? Or fathers who are too protective and don’t know how to let go? — STARGIRL IN MICHIGAN DEAR STARGIRL: My advice to fathers would be to form as close a relationship with their daughters as they can while the girls are little. Teenage girls whose fathers are involved in their lives tend to engage in sexual activity at later ages. However, whether a father is “too protective” may be a question of perspective — the father’s or the daughter’s. I have heard many adults say in retrospect how much they appreciate that their parents were strict. But I have rarely heard the contrary.

Bear comes to city, will get escort back to woods PORTLAND (AP) — Oregon wildlife biologists say a bear that appeared to wander into a Portland neighborhood will sleep off a dose of tranquilizers and then get an escort back to the woods. Bears are not unknown in the Portland area, but wildlife officials said they didn’t know of one being in so urban a neighborhood. The 125-pound, 2-yearold male bear caused a stir early Wednesday as police tracked it through several yards, and it climbed a tree. A wildlife officer shot it with a tranquilizer dart. Firefighters lowered it with ropes. A biologist decided it was likely disoriented and not a problem bear expecting food or habituated to humans. So, it’s been caged and will be released in an “undisclosed location” in the forest.

U of O plans own banking operation EUGENE (AP) — The first order of business for the new governing board of the University of Oregon will be to go into the banking business. The Eugene RegisterGuard reports the new board of trustees is planning a university Central Bank to invest operating cash and reserves amounting to more than $200 million. Those investments are now handled by a systemwide operation for the state’s seven public universities. But the schools are getting their own boards, and the University of Oregon’s cash management will no longer be handled by the state university system.
STATE D I G E S T The University trustees meet for the first time today and Friday. Oregon State University will operate the systemwide bank as a shared service for the rest of the universities.
Reward increased to $26,500 in wildfire BEND (AP) — A reward for information about who’s responsible for a 10-squaremile, human-caused wildfire near Bend has grown to $26,500 after a suspicious blaze broke out nearby Tuesday in an area closed to the public. That new fire was quickly extinguished by helicopter and engine crews after burning a quarter acre, Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton said. Sheriff’s Capt. Shane Nelson announced the new reward total late Wednesday afternoon. The Two Bulls Fire was 55 percent contained Wednesday after burning through brush
and forest on the western outskirts of Bend, a popular outdoor recreation destination in central Oregon. Fire investigators have said it was human-caused. Fighting the fire has cost about $4.3 million so far.
Appeals court says teens deserve hearing EUGENE (AP) — The Oregon Court of Appeals says two Eugene teenagers who contend the state is failing to take adequate steps to stave off climate change deserve their day in court. In an opinion announced Wednesday, the appeals court said a Lane County Circuit Court judge should consider the merits of the teens’ request for a public trust declaration. The Register-Guard reports that the appeals court says a state judge should not have dismissed the lawsuit filed by 18-yearold Kelsey Juliana and 14-year-old Olivia Chernaik. Circuit Judge Karsten Rasmussen ruled in 2012 that courts lack authority to order state officials to create and carry out a plan to
reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Rasmussen called that a question for the legislative and executive branches of state government. Oregon Justice Department officials have 35 days to ask the state Supreme Court to review the appellate ruling. Department spokeswoman Kristina Edmunson says no decision has been made yet.
Gunfire follows police chase; driver dies PORTLAND (AP) — Police officers shot and killed a driver who was described as “not cooperative” after they chased and stopped him in Portland. The officers were from the neighboring Milwaukie police department. Portland police are investigating the killing because the brief chase Wednesday morning led into the city. A statement from the Portland police said that once the two officers stopped the car, the driver was not cooperative and both officers fired, hitting him at least once. An autopsy is planned.

Kerry worked as a cook at Bay Area Hospital for more than 20 years and in 2010 she retired. Part of her living the good life was doing the things she loved such as dancing, camping with family and friends, playing bingo and computer games and she often enjoyed the “recreational activities” that can be found down at The Mill Casino. Kerry was known for her amazing handmade, handcrafted hand-baked, gingerbread houses. She would decorate them with such detail they were literally works of art and won numerous awards. Being a lover of animals, Kerry had her favorite, the cats. Some would go as far to say that Kerry was the “Cat Lady.” She loved her cats and they loved getting spoiled by her. Another love of Kerry’s was traveling; whether it was driving up for family gatherings in Washington or road trips to eastern Oregon for a camping trip every August. One of her most memorable trips was the time she went to Cancun with her daughter, Laura. She said on many occasions how it was one of her favorite times ever. Kerry was an incredible lady, a loving mother, a “hot”
wife, a proud grandma, a kind-hearted and compassionate woman who had a great sense of humor and always had time for a friend. She often had a smile on her face and usually had a good joke to tell. She was loved by many and she will be missed by all. Kerry is survived by her husband, Tom Titus; children, Laura Nasvall of Coquille and Lucas Lodholz and Monica of Coos Bay; stepdaughter, Debi Ramer of Eugene; grandchildren, Zack, Larissa, Nicole, Tim, Brianna, Gary and Arica; great-grandchildren, Eden, Daniel and Bradlee; brothers, Terry Tveit and wife, Janet and Larry Tveit and wife, Marcella; sister, Phoebe “Kandy” Kval and husband, Jack; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Geraldine Tveit; sister, Marie; granddaughter, Alisha Nasvall; and stepson, Kenny Titus.

South Coast Killer whales spark false alarm of boat accident THE WORLD COOS BAY — A reported boating emergency in the Charleston shipping channel Tuesday morning turned out to be a rare visit from the wolves of the sea. According to the Coos Bay Police Department, dispatchers relayed a call from U.S. Coast Guard Air Station North Bend of a
reported boating accident in the Charleston shipping channel just before 10:30 a.m. Officers from Coos Bay and Coquille Tribal Police scoured the bay with binoculars from Cape Arago Highway for more than an hour, and a Coast Guard boat and helicopter also attempted to find the

reportedly distressed boaters in the water. Officers didn’t see any capsized boats, but they did spot something unusual: killer whales. A pod of orcas had somehow entered the shipping channel and been mistaken for a boat in distress. The giant cetaceans, which can reach more than 30 feet in length, typically migrate down the Pacific coast this time of year and have previously entered the bay as recently as 2007. Most whales sighted in the bay are believed to be transient animals, feeding on marine mammals.

NEWS D I G E S T Driver pleads not guilty in accident that injured Tracy Morgan NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Accident investigators are looking into what role a truck driver’s commute played in the fatal New Jersey Turnpike crash that also injured comedian Tracy Morgan. Wal-Mart driver Kevin Roper, who pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges on Wednesday, lived in Georgia, but his job was based in Delaware, said National Transportation Safety Board spokeswoman Kelly Nantel. A criminal complaint alleges that the 35-year-old Roper, of Jonesboro, Georgia, hadn’t slept for more than 24 hours before the accident when he allegedly swerved to avoid slowed traffic on the turnpike and plowed into Morgan’s limo early Saturday. Wal-Mart has not explained what Roper’s driving route was. The company has said it believes he was in compliance with federal safety regulations. Roper’s bail was kept at $50,000.

According to the Interfax news agency, Lamberto Zannier said Thursday that the conflict in the east “is craziness which must be stopped.” appearance Zannier’s before the refugees at a holiday complex in Dmitriadovka, about 25 miles from the Ukrainian border, underlined the prominent role being played by the OSCE in the Ukraine crisis. Russia, which Kiev and the West allege has fomented the separatist unrest in the east, has spoken strongly in support of an OSCE-proposed “road map” for ending the conflict. Russia says some 30,000 people have fled the fighting.
Subway strike in Sao Paulo averted SAO PAULO (AP) — A subway strike in Sao Paulo that threatened to disrupt the opening of the World Cup was averted Wednesday night even as airport workers in Rio de Janeiro declared a 24-hour work stoppage in the main destination for soccer fans traveling to Brazil. Some 1,500 subway workers in Sao Paulo voted against going back on strike in a pay dispute. They had suspended the walkout Monday amid a popular backlash and government pressure to end the transportation chaos in Brazil’s biggest city. “We thought that right now it’s better to wait,” union president Altino Prazeres said, but added that he wouldn’t rule out resuming the strike sometime during the monthlong soccer tournament. “We get the feeling that maybe we aren’t as prepared for a full confrontation with police on the day the World Cup starts.” The union said its members would hold a march Thursday morning demanding that 42 workers fired during the five-day work stoppage are rehired.

A baby toad is shown in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia. A humid and rainy summer night makes for quite a rush hour in Philadelphia as thousands of baby toads try to hop across a busy street.
Car detour lets toads cross the road without croaking PHILADELPHIA (AP) — It’s rush hour in Philadelphia for thousands of baby toads as they hop across a busy residential street on a rainy summer night. Why do toadlets cross the road? To get to the woods on the other side — where they will live, eat mosquitoes and grow up to be full-sized American toads (bufo Americanus). After a couple of years, they’ll make the reverse trek as adults — unless they get squashed by a car. That’s where the Toad Detour comes in. The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education sets up a roadblock each year in the Roxborough neighborhood, rerouting cars so the amphibians can cross the twolane street without fear of, um, croaking. The cycle starts in early spring when adult toads, which can fit in the palm of your hand, emerge from the woods to breed. They cross Port Royal Avenue, scale a 10-foot-high embankment and then travel down a densely vegetated hill to mate in the abandoned Upper Roxborough Reservoir. Their offspring — each about the size of a raisin — make the journey in reverse about six weeks later. So many baby toads were on the move Monday evening it looked like the road’s
muddy shoulder was alive. Volunteers scooped them up in plastic cups and deposited them on the habitat side of the street. “I didn’t expect at all that there were going to be so many of them in one area,” said 17-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt as she held a cup with more than a dozen toadlets. “And they’re so tiny. They look like bugs.” The detour program began in 2009 when a local resident noticed the toad-filled road. City officials later granted permission to close the street for a couple of hours every evening during both two-week migration periods. Organizers estimate they helped 2,400 adult toads cross the road this spring, said volunteer coordinator Claire Morgan. And because female toads can lay thousands of eggs, many more toads are migrating the other way and need protection. Though some will inevitably be squished when the roadblock is not up, the toad population is not endangered, Morgan said. But protecting wildlife is important, she said, and local residents seem to support the project — especially after they volunteer to help. “We get some people that question it,” said Morgan. “But after they do it, they’re hooked.”
The O.J. Simpson murder trial exposed many painful truths. None hit harder than the idea that white and black people often look at the same facts and see different realities. Today, 20 years after the case divided the nation, few opinions have changed. Despite two decades’ worth of increasing racial acceptance, the saga still reflects deeprooted obstacles to a truly united America. Most people still believe that the black football legend killed his white ex-wife and her friend, polls show. But for many African-Americans, his likely guilt remains overwhelmed by a potent mix: the racism of the lead detective and the history of black mistreatment by the justice system. For these people, Simpson’s acquittal is a powerful rebuke to what they see as America’s racial crimes. Others simply see a murderer who played the race card to get away with it. Across the board, emotions remain vivid. “We were consumed with it,” recalls Carlos Carter, who at the time was one of the few black people working in the trust department of a Pittsburgh bank. “It represented something bigger than the case, the battle between good and evil, the battle between the white man and the black man. It was at that level.” It was at a different level for Shannon Spicker, a white woman working her way through college in Ohio. “Most of us didn’t understand why it was racially
charged,” she says. “We didn’t understand how people could defend him ...We knew he was guilty, but they defended him because he was black. It was weird.” Defense lawyers suggested lead detective Mark Fuhrman planted the bloody glove out of a racist desire to frame a black man. They said that other blood evidence could have been planted, too, or at least was unreliable due to sloppy police work. “That was huge for me,” recalls Carter. “I thought (police) compromised it so much I can’t trust the evidence. The corruption overshadowed all the other things that may have been logical to me.” Cameron Vigil, who is white, saw it differently. “Clearly (Fuhrman) was difficult and lying and trying to obfuscate while he was up there,” recalls Vigil, a 45-yearold strategic retail analyst. But he separated that from the evidence. “Just because he is a not very smart, racist guy,” Vigil says, “I don’t know that means O.J.’s not guilty.” Duncan literally jumped for joy when he heard the verdict on television. “It wasn’t so much for O.J. I was jumping for joy. ... It was the victory over the United States justice system that has always had a different treatment for me and my brother.” “I never said O.J. wasn’t guilty,” Duncan continues. “I just said he got off. That’s what it is: O.J. got off. There’s a side of me that’s annoyed by my jubilation. But my jubilation is motivated by the ills and pains of the past. There have been too many tears.”

The Veterans Affairs Department released an audit this week showing that more than 57,000 veterans have had to wait at least three months for initial appointments. An additional 64,000 veterans who asked for appointments over the past decade never got them.

The VA, which serves almost 9 million veterans, has faced mounting evidence that workers falsified reports on wait times for medical appointments in an effort to mask frequent, long delays. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned May 30, but the situation remains a continuing embarrassment for Obama and a potential political liability for congressional Democrats seeking re-election in November. While the legislation will not solve all the VA’s problems, it should “spark long-overdue change — from the top down — in order to ensure our veterans are getting the care and support they expect and deserve,” said Sen. Patty Murray, DWash. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said the Senate bill created “an unlimited entitlement program” for veterans and
voted against it. Sen. Tom Coburn, ROkla., supported the bill but said “money is not the problem” at the VA. “It’s management and accountability and honesty in treating the veterans” that are needed to improve care for veterans, Coburn said. But Sen. John McCain, RAriz., one of the bill’s co-authors, said it was needed to respond to an ongoing national crisis. “Make no mistake: This is an emergency,” McCain said. In addition to Sessions, Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin voted no. Four senators did not vote: Republicans Thad Cochran of Mississippi and Jerry Moran of Kansas and Democrats Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Jeff Merkley of Oregon.
any cancer patient doesn’t need to give up their dreams.” Information about Hall’s journey and a link to his fundraising goal can be found on his Facebook page. Hall is a family therapist who grew up in Oregon and moved back after working in Kansas for many years. He was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006, and with lymphoma shortly after a different form of cancer claimed the life of his wife in 2010. “One of the things I’ve learned as a therapist and a patient myself, when you get that diagnosis, it’s so scary and overwhelming, it’s pretty easy to give up your dream and drive,” Hall said. “I did, too. I knew better, but I kind of dropped all my dreams and went into survival mode.” Hall had always loved to be active. He’d done triathlons in years past, and had once dreamed of swimming the English Channel. But after his wife’s death, with his own illness hitting hard, he felt as if everything had been stripped away. He remembers thinking: “I just don’t feel like the strong, active guy I’ve always been. I need to find Dean again. I’m going to start swimming.” He didn’t get sicker. In fact, he started to feel better, both emotionally and physically. about (last) “Along November it hit me, this is all fine and good, but it’s pretty

In February, the church moved in with the Coos Bay United Methodist Church, where Beville has been the pastor since July 2010. “We’re working toward a merge of the two congregations,” Beville said. The lot has sat empty since February 2013, when the church was torn down.

self-centered and absorbed. It doesn’t really match who I believe I am,” he said. “My mission and purpose in life is to help others. How can I reclaim myself while still fulfilling my purpose in life?” “Swimming in Miracles” was born, and at the same time, Hall said, the miracles themselves began. He spoke to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and found the organization would be in the middle of a fundraiser push right when he was thinking about starting his swim. He visited with the Willamette Riverkeeper and found support and excitement for his cause. Director Travis Williams told Hall he was the first to make such an attempt and provided him with valuable guide and river condition information. Eugene residents Lou English and Al Grapel, certified water rescue instructors, helped scout out the areas he planned to swim and worked with his father, Dick Hall of Portland, who is kayaking alongside him to provide support. (The elder Hall also is battling lymphoma.) Best of all, Hall said, he hasn’t been sore, a factor that greatly surprised him and one he calls yet another miracle. Hall is wearing a wetsuit for his journey and carries an iPhone in a watertight bag inside it, secured to the small of his back, just in case he and his father get separated. He also has a knife strapped to his leg to cut himself free of any test lines or tow ropes that might cross his path. He was banged up on rocks in the rapids the first day and had a close call with some floating logs, but otherwise hasn’t had many
complications. Pollution? He isn’t worried. Fifty years ago things were terrible, yes, he said, the days but these Riverkeeper group keeps a close eye on potential contamination. The problems at the Superfund site near Sauvie Island are all in the sediment some 40 feet below, not in the waters he’ll be swimming. He also made it without incident through the area where effluent from the Pacific and Cascade Georgia-Pacific pulp and paper plants at Halsey had been flowing into the Willamette, 15 miles upstream from Corvallis. Cascade The dredging Pacific has been doing to improve the water flow made a huge difference, he said. On his left wrist, flashing through the water as he swims, Hall wears two rubber bracelets. One carries his motto: “Swimming in Miracles.” The other carries the motto of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: “Relentless.” Family and friends say that second word fits Hall well, although he quipped he prefers the term, “Strongminded.” However, he said, he’s learning through his swimming that being relentless doesn’t mean just putting your head down and soldiering on. “That’s a horrible way to go through life. It may be successful, but it’s not very fun,” he said. That’s why he doesn’t think about the miles he’s swum or the miles he has left to go. “I just concentrate on being in the river, being healthy, watching the bubbles go by.”
World War II. The retreat was later dubbed his “summer White House.” During his presidential years, Bush was known for jogging, tennis and fastpaced golf but now uses a wheelchair or scooter because of a form of parkinsonism that has robbed him of use of his legs. “He’s lost his mobility, but he hasn’t lost his heart. He’s still the genuine person that we’ve come to cherish,” said Ken Raynor, a friend and pro
at the Cape Arundel Golf Club. While his activities are now limited, Bush still fulfills his need for speed on his boat, Fidelity. “He’s always loved going fast. He loves the speed. He loves the adrenaline,” McGrath said. Jon Meacham, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and history who is writing a book about Bush, said the former president is used to being in motion, so it isn’t easy for him to slow down.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Political polarization in America has broken out of the voting booth. A new survey from the Pew Research Center ﬁnds Americans are divided by ideology and partisanship not only when they cast ballots, but also in choosing where to live, where to get their news and with whom to associate. And peaceful coexistence is increasingly difﬁcult. According to the poll, the share of Americans who hold across-the-board conservative or liberal views has doubled in the last decade, from 10 percent in 2004 to 21 percent today. Only 39 percent of Americans have an even mix of liberal and conservative positions, down from 49 percent 10 years ago. The numbers of ideological purists are larger among the politically engaged than the general public, suggesting the ideological stalemates that have become more common in
Washington and statehouses around the country are likely to continue. A third of those who say they regularly vote in primaries have all-ornothing ideological views, as do 41 percent who say they have donated money to a campaign. And among partisans, ideological purity is now the standard. Majorities in both parties hold either uniformly liberal (on the Democratic side) or conservative (among the GOP) views. The shift toward ideological purity has been more visible among Republicans due to the popularity of the tea party, but the survey found it’s happening in nearly equal measure among Democrats. Those differences in visibility are partly due to the Democratic hold on the White House, according to Pew Research Center Vice President Michael Dimock. “Levels of alarm about the direction of the nation, and about the ‘threat’ the other
party poses to the country, are substantially higher on the right than on the left right now, and at least in part this reﬂects the fact that Barack Obama is in the White House,” Dimock said. But Democrats have expressed their share of distrust in the past, he noted in an email. “Democrats felt pretty passionately about George W. Bush and the GOP in his second term,” he said. The survey used a battery of 10 questions on issues such as regulation of business, use of the military, the environment and immigration to assess ideological leanings. Across nine of the 10 issues tested, the views of Democrats and Republicans have grown further apart since 1994. About 8 in 10 Democrats say they have an unfavorable opinion of the Republican Party, and for 82 percent of Republicans, the feeling is mutual. This cross-party dislike has increased by double digits on both sides.
For White House, there’s little joy in Cantor’s defeat WASHINGTON (AP) — For years, the White House saw House Majority Leader Eric Cantor as a chief driver of Republicans’ staunch opposition to nearly all of President Barack Obama’s agenda. Now, Cantor’s stunning primary loss seems likely to make politics even more difﬁcult for Obama. Rather than opening a pathway for the president, Cantor’s defeat could push Republicans more to the
right and harden the House GOP’s hostility toward the White House, virtually dooming Obama’s efforts to pass a legacy-building immigration bill or other major legislation. Robert Gibbs, a longtime Obama adviser, said any glee at the White House over Cantor’s defeat was “quickly replaced by the reality that this is the end of anything productive getting done legislatively in Congress either this year or maybe
for the next several years.” Cantor, the No. 2 Republican in the House, was soundly defeated by his tea party-backed opponent, a little-known economics professor named David Brat, in Virginia’s GOP primary Tuesday. Despite being massively outspen, Brat rode a wave of public anger over calls for more lenient immigration laws, reducing the prospects that House Republicans might take up a bill this year.
The day after his defeat, Cantor announced he would serve out his term but resign his leadership post this summer, sparking a ﬂurry of maneuvering among GOP lawmakers eager to take his spot. Cantor threw his support behind Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, the House GOP whip and thirdranking leader. Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas also made clear his interest in being considered when House
Republicans vote on a new majority leader on June 19. Cantor’s surprise defeat was accompanied by a steady stream of gloating commentary from congressional Democrats and party operatives who saw the downfall of a top Republican leader as a coveted prize in this midterm election year. Yet, Brat, the winner of the race, promises to be even more uncompromising than Cantor.

Sunni militant group vows to march on Baghdad BAGHDAD (AP) — The alQaida-inspired group that captured two key Sunni-dominated cities in Iraq this week vowed on Thursday to march on to Baghdad, raising fears about the Shiite-led government’s ability to slow the assault following the insurgents’ lightning gains. Fighters from the militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq
and the Levant took Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit on Wednesday as soldiers and security forces abandoned their posts and yielded ground once controlled by U.S. troops. That seizure followed the capture of much of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, the previous day. The group and its allies among local tribesmen also hold the city of
Fallujah and other pockets of the Sunni-dominated Anbar province to the west of Baghdad. Baghdad does not appear to be in imminent danger from a similar assault, although Sunni insurgents have stepped up car bombings and suicide attacks in recent months. The capital, with its large Shiite population, would be a far harder target for the militants. So far,
Islamic State ﬁghters have stuck to the Sunni heartland and former Sunni insurgent strongholds where people are already alienated by the Shiite-led government over allegations of discrimination and mistreatment. The militants also would likely meet far stronger resistance, not only from government forces but by Shiite militias if they tried to advance on the capital.
In contrast, online video posted Thursday showed some Tikrit residents celebrating the militant takeover. As Islamic State ﬁghters drove through largely empty streets in a captured military Humvee and a pickup truck mounted with an anti-aircraft gun, what appeared to be a few dozen people shouted “God is great,” and celebratory gunﬁre could be heard.
After lull, U.S. drone strikes kill 13 in Pakistan ISLAMABAD (AP) — Missiles from U.S. drones slammed into militant hideouts overnight in northwestern Pakistan, killing 13 suspected insurgents and marking the resumption of the CIA-led program after a nearly sixmonth break, ofﬁcials said Thursday. The two separate drone strikes sparked swift condemnation by the Pakistani government. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that the strikes, are a violation of Pakistani sovereignty and territorial integrity. In the ﬁrst strike, which came late Wednesday, a suspected American drone ﬁred two missiles at a militant hideout in the North Waziristan tribal area near the Afghan border, killing three militants. Then, early Thursday a suspected U.S. missile strike targeted another militant compound in North Waziristan, killing at least 10 people, Pakistani intelligence ofﬁcials said.
Pakistan’s northwest, particularly North Waziristan, is home to numerous militant groups — both local and al-Qaidalinked foreign groups — who often work together, sharing ﬁghters, money or expertise. There was no immediate information on the identities of those killed in the strikes but the two intelligence ofﬁcials who gave information about the strike said the area is dominated by the Haqqani network, and most of those killed are believed to have belonged to the organization. “We have also been hearing some names coming from our ﬁeld agents, but we don’t have any conﬁrmation so far,” said one of the ofﬁcials. The ofﬁcials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The Haqqani network is believed to carry out operations against U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan from bases in North Waziristan and is considered one of the more lethal groups operating in Afghanistan.

A touch of Bandon at U.S. Open The U.S. Open started this morning on the other side of the country. But folks around Bandon Dunes will be watching as much as possible this weekend because of ties to the resort in the tournament. This year’s tournament is being played at Pinehurst No. 2, a revered layout in North Carolina widely regarded as one of the best courses in the country. The course was built in 1907 by Donald Ross, but was restored in the past few years by renowned architects Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. That duo SPORTS built both the Bandon Trails and Bandon Preserve courses at the resort here. “It’s exciting that these people that we’ve met and have built our courses JOHN here restored GUNTHER Pinehurst No. 2,” said Scott Millhouser, who looks out at the two Bandon Dunes courses every workday in his role as head pro at Bandon Trails. “They are amazing architects — just artists,” Millhouser said. Coore and Crenshaw didn’t change the design of Pinehurst, instead using historic photos to make the course like it originally was. But Millhouser said there are definite similarities to Bandon Trails, especially in the bunkers. “They’re not just clear-cut bunkers, but more natural,” he said. “They’re deep. They flash up (on the sides). You can tell it’s Coore-Crenshaw bunkering.” Pinehurst also is a links-style course like those at the resort here. “Just seeing the turf conditions not just being dark green,” Millhouser said. “You can see where the course is going to play firm and fast, just like Bandon Trails does.” Coore and Crenshaw are wellliked at Bandon Dunes. “They’re just great guys,” Millhouser said. “They’re the down-to-earth, nicest guys you’d ever meet. It’s nice to see them have this type of recognition.” “They’re extremely cool, gracious, nice people,” said Ken Nice, the director of agronomy at Bandon Dunes, who worked closely with the pair while the two courses here were being built. Both Millhouser and Nice are naturally prone to want to watch the four major tournaments — the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship, and plan to watch as they have time this weekend. Nice will be helping coach the Class 4A-3A-2A All-Star basketball series Friday and Saturday and Millhouser is playing in a tournament himself Saturday, but both hope to watch as much as possible. “I would be more or less glued to the TV if it wasn’t for the basketball,” Nice said. Next year will be the same. The 2015 U.S. Open is at Chambers Bay in Washington. Not only will the tournament be in the Northwest for the first time, but the course near Seattle is run by KemperSports, the same company that manages Bandon Dunes. “Next year, I’m very excited to have a U.S. Open in the Northwest, especially a sister course, and a links course,” Millhouser said. And Chambers Bay has more than a little connection to Bandon Dunes, through a succession of workers who have left the resort here to work there. They include General Manager Matt Allen, who was the assistant general manager in Bandon before taking the job in Washington as that course was being built. The superintendent at Chambers Bay, Josh Lewis, played golf for Marshfield High School and worked on the greens crew at Bandon Trails. The director of agronomy, Eric Johnson, is a North Bend graduate and was superintendent for the Bandon Dunes course at the resort. Two other key staffers at Chambers Bay also are from Bandon Dunes. Jamie Fay is the marketing and communications director and Nyk Pike, the director of golf operations, was the first assistant at Pacific Dunes. “There’s definitely a good tiein there,” Millhouser said.

Sandra Bullock will coach the new Southwestern Oregon Community College men’s and women’s swim program this fall.
SWOCC adds swimming program BY JOHN GUNTHER The World
COOS BAY — Southwestern Oregon Community College often has been on the cutting edge for two-year schools, over the years adding dorms and the Oregon Coast Cullinary Institute among other things. Now the Lakers are doing the same in sports adding a swimming program — the only one in the Northwest among community colleges. The Lakers hired Bay Area resident Sandra Bullock to head the new program and Bullock has started recruiting for her first team and trying to put together a schedule knowing that no other similar schools offer the sport. “It’s great for the community and for the region,” said Bullock, who expects to have swimmers from several states when the
school year starts in September. Bullock retired from a career in the U.S. Coast Guard and now works as an administrator at KLight Radio. She has helped coach youth swimming at Mingus Park pool the past three years. She coached softball both while she was at the Coast Guard Academy and stationed in Alabama and has volunteered as coach for a number of other sports over the years, including basketball and Little League baseball. “I coach for the love of the sport and an opportunity to have an impact on kids’ lives,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to have an impact on a different level — to help them from an academic and athletic standpoint.” SWOCC athletic director Mike Herbert said the athletic department added swimming as a way to boost enrollment in the college. SWOCC is reinstating or
adding forestry, computer science and criminal justice programs, he said. “We looked at what can we do to help with enrollment,” Herbert said. Swimming is a sport that is growing in participation at the youth and high school levels. But aside from California, which has several schools with the sport in its junior college ranks, no other two-year schools west of Iowa have swim teams, he said. SWOCC hopes to give local swimmers an opportunity to continue their careers in college and also to provide an opportunity for swimmers in the region who aren’t quite good enough to compete in Division I or Division II schools. Oregon State University, Boise State University and the University of Washington offer swimming at the Division I level, while a few smaller four-year schools in
Oregon and Washington also offer the sport. Those schools will provide the majority of the competition for the Lakers during the regular season. “They’re all supportive,” Bullock said. “They are going to host duals with just us.” The Lakers already have scheduled duals with Willamette, Pacific, Pacific Lutheran and Seattle-Pacific, she said. “The four-years have been very helpful and receptive,” Herbert said. “They can use it as a recruiting tool. We can use it as a way to help (the swimmers) get recruited.” The Lakers will compete in NJCAA, which has a national meet that swimmers qualify for by meeting standards during the season. Next year’s national meet will be in Buffalo. SEE SWIMMING | B5
Cheserek gives Ducks good start at NCAA meet Freshman wins 10,000 to give Oregon first-day lead ■
The Associated Press
Oregon’s Edward Cheserek races to the finish line while secondplace finisher Shadrack Kipchirchir of Oklahoma State follows during the men’s 10,000-meter race at the NCAA outdoor track and field championships Wednesday.
EUGENE (AP) — Oregon freshman Edward Cheserek surged on the final lap to win the 10,000 meters at the NCAA track and field championships Wednesday night. Cheserek won in a personal-best 28 minutes, 30.18 seconds, smoking the field with a 53.31-second final lap. He is the first freshman to win the event since UTEP’s Suleiman Nyambui in 1979. “I was just like ‘Run smart, relax until the last 400 to go, so I have more energy to kick the last lap,’ you know?” he said. Cheserek has not lost an NCAA title race, winning the cross country title in November and the 3,000 and 5,000 at the indoor championships. Oklahoma State senior Shadrack Kipchirchir was second and Wisconsin senior Mohammed Ahmed finished third in the event, the highlight of the opening day of the championships at Oregon’s Hayward Field. The Ducks picked up five more points in the 10,000 when Trevor Dunbar finished fifth and Parker Stinson was eighth. That gave Oregon the first-day lead with 15 points. Texas was second with 11 1/2. Cheserek also will run the 5,000 on Friday night. He will face Arizona senior Lawi Lalang, who was the defending champion in the 10K but is running the
Clark vaults on Friday THE WORLD North Bend graduate Sammie Clark competes in the women’s pole vault Friday for the University of Oregon at the NCAA championships. Clark, a senior, is completing her career for the Ducks. She was a twotime state champion and is the school record holder for North Bend. The pole vault starts at 3:15 p.m. Friday. 1,500 and 5,000 this year. Lalang has eight NCAA titles. The Ducks entered the meet ranked No. 1 in the nation by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Oregon has won eight straight Pac-12 titles and claimed the NCAA indoor title, but the team hasn’t won an outdoor championship since 1984. Second-ranked Florida and thirdranked Texas A&M were the co-champions last year, when the outdoor championships also were held at Hayward Field. SEE TRACK | B5
McDowell, Na are early leaders in U.S. Open PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — The U.S. Open began Thursday with a rustic look, cloud cover and more birdies than some might have expected. Brandt Snedeker rolled in a short putt for his fourth birdie in seven holes to put his name atop the leaderboard early in the day before he gave back three strokes along the way, eventually finishing at 1-under, one behind Graeme McDowell and Kevin Na. Several others also had good starts, including Phil Mickelson, who got to 2-under at one point before dropping back to even par for his round. Matt Kuchar finished at 1under while youngsters Jordan Spieth and Ricky Fowler also were in the mix. Mickelson reached 2 under with a wedge into 4 feet on the
14th hole, quickly raising his hopes of getting another shot at the major that has tormented him. After three days of sunshine and stifling heat, the U.S. Open began under thick cloud cover that allowed the putting surfaces to retain their moisture. Just under three hours into the championship, 14 players already were under par. The expectations have rarely been so high at a U.S. Open for Lefty, and it was critical for him to at least start well. He extended his U.S. Open record last year at Merion with his sixth runner-up finish. A month later he won the British Open, meaning the U.S. Open is all he needs to join that elite group of five players with the career Grand Slam. It all started at Pinehurst No. 2
in 1999, when Payne Stewart made a 15-foot par putt on the final to beat Mickelson by one shot. Mickelson became a father the next day. Stewart died in a freak plane crash four months later. But this is a different Pinehurst. The resort hired Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw to restore the natural look of more than a half-century ago to this Ross masterpiece. Some 40 acres of sod was removed, and now there are vast expanses of what appears to be sandy dunes. This U.S. Open effectively has no rough. The amount of sprinklers was reduced by nearly 60 percent, and they are in a single row in the middle of fairways. So the course has a very brown look to it, especially around the edges. Players have
been raving about it all week, even though they knew what was in store for them. So far, however, it has been a kind and gentle No. 2 course. Not everyone was having an easy time with it. Cameron Wilson, the NCAA champion from Stanford who got in as an alternate, made only one par in six holes and played the front nine in 40. Defending champion Justin Rose already was 2 over through five holes. Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson were 1 over. Stenson and Masters champion Bubba Watson are the only players who have a chance to reach No. 1 in the world this week. Watson and world No. 1 Adam Scott are playing in the same group. They were to play in the afternoon.

Timbers rally for 2-2 draw with FC Dallas PORTLAND (AP) — Pa Modou Kah scored in stoppage time and the Portland Timbers rallied for a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas on Wednesday night in the last scheduled game before Major League Soccer takes a break for the World Cup. Fabian Castillo and Blaz Perez scored for injury-depleted FC Dallas in the first half, but Portland’s Will Johnson narrowed it on a penalty kick in the 79th minute in the chippy match that saw two Dallas players sent off with red cards. Both teams were playing on a short turnaround. Dallas FC (67-4) was coming off a 3-2 victory over Colorado on Saturday. The Timbers (4-4-8) are winless at home in their last four matches. Portland beat Real Salt Lake 3-1 on Saturday, the team’s first victory at Rio Tinto since joining MLS in 2011.
Defender Kah returned to the starting lineup after sitting out the RSL match with sore Achilles tendons. Defender Jack Jewsbury was a reserve after starting 12 matches this season. Dallas has been hit hard by injuries. It was without defenders Matt Hedges and Walker Zimmerman. Midfielders Michel, Mauro Diaz and Hendry Thomas did not play, either. Rauwshan McKenzie thought he had a goal for the Timbers in the 10th minute, but Johnson was offside. Castillo put FC Dallas in front with a header toward the box that he chased down himself and buried in the left corner past Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. It was his fifth goal of the season. FC Dallas made it 2-0 with Perez’s hard boot from out front in the 39th minute. He also has five goals.
Johnson caught Dallas goalkeeper Raul Fernandez out of his goal in the 62nd minute, but the shot sailed over the net. Johnson was able to beat Fernandez on the penalty kick to spoil the shutout. Dallas’ Moises Hernandez and Perez each were sent off with red cards in the final minutes as the match got heated. Castillo headed toward Ricketts and bumped a referee as time ran out, and had to be restrained by teammates. The Timbers held a moment of silence for Emilio Hoffman, the 14-year-old Reynolds High School freshman who was killed Tuesday in a shooting at the school east of Portland. Hoffman was a soccer player and fan who wore No. 29 for the high school team. The Timbers Army supporters group honored Hoffman by waving their scarves in the 29th minute.

Rangers win to stay alive in Stanley Cup finals NEW YORK (AP) — Henrik Lundqvist and some soft ice in front of his net kept the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup finals. Lundqvist made 40 saves in the Rangers’ 2-1 victory in Game 4 that kept the Los Angeles Kings from a sweep on Wednesday night. Twice Los Angeles put the puck on the goal line without getting it all the way across. The last came with 1:11 left in the game when Rangers forward Derek Stepan pushed the puck out of danger after it got behind Lundqvist. “It’s probably the product of moving a lot,” Lundqvist said. “I stay deep in the net, so there’s a lot of snow there.” “I thought I had it because I felt the puck, felt like I got a good piece of it on that deflection. I was yelling at the ref to blow the whistle. Then I realized it was behind me for a couple seconds.” Benoit Pouliot and Martin St. Louis each scored for the Rangers. Los Angeles leads the series 3-1 and will get its second shot to claim the Cup for the second time in three years Friday night at home. “We would have liked to
finish it tonight, but having the next game back at home, that is where we are comfortable,” Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said. “We are in front of our fans, we are at the Staples Center, we are on good ice. I’m looking forward to it.” According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Lundqvist is the first goaltender to record at least 40 saves in an elimination regulation win in the Cup finals since the NHL began recording saves as an official statistic in the 1950s. “Hank stood on his head,” Stepan said. “He made some big saves in some big times for us. Hank stood tall and he’s a big part of why we are going back to LA.” Pouliot scored 7:25 into the first period and St. Louis added a goal in the second. New York squandered multiple two-goal advantages in losing the first two games in overtime in Los Angeles. Not this time. Lundqvist and the Rangers continued their mastery of extending their season. New York is 11-2 in the past 13 games when facing elimination, and Lundqvist was in goal for all
of them. Madison Square Garden had a different feel than the festive atmosphere of Game 3 when the Rangers returned home from Los Angeles. There were no T-shirts draped over the seats, and some of the seats in primeviewing areas were empty. But as the Rangers started to score, the crowd slowly came alive, roaring in approval. The Rangers also have won an NHL-record eight consecutive home games when facing elimination, dating to 2008, behind Lundqvist. “This is do-or-die,” St. Louis said. “Before the game, we were in our game-day routine. We’re a confident bunch. We’ve done great things. “We got our first one, and I’m sure that’s going to help our mood.” The Kings pressed for the tying goal in the third period and outshot the Rangers 15-1 in the frame and 41-19 overall. “I think we sat back a little too much in the third period. But we didn’t blow the lead this time,” Stepan said. Two nights after Jonathan

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist blocks a shot by Tanner Pearson during New York’s 2-1 win in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday. Quick stopped 32 shots in a 3-0 victory that put the Kings on the brink of another championship, Pouliot got a puck past him. St. Louis then put in a rebound at the left post 6:27 into the second, giving the Rangers their fifth two-goal lead of the series. But just like in Games 1 and 2, a two-goal deficit sparked the Kings. At the tail end of a Rangers power play, New York defenseman Dan Girardi
broke his stick and lost the puck to Kings captain Dustin Brown for a breakaway the other way. Brown made several moves in front of Lundqvist before tucking a forehand inside the right post to make it 2-1 with 11:13 left in the second. “He made some good saves, but we didn’t test him,” Brown said of the Rangers goalie. “Enough or make it hard enough on him.”
The Kings had a chance to get even, but the Rangers killed Dominic Moore’s cross-checking penalty late in the period. Jeff Carter then got behind G i ra rd i b e fo re b e i n g stopped on a breakaway by Lundqvist. Pouliot broke Quick’s shutout streak at 123 minutes, 1 second. New York hadn’t scored since Derick Brassard’s second-period goal in Game 2.

Gwynn gets extension with San Diego State SAN DIEGO (AP) — Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has been given a one-year contract extension as baseball coach at San Diego State. Gwynn has been on a medical leave since late March while recovering from cancer treatment. He took over the program at his alma mater after the 2002 season. Along with Gwynn’s extension, the school announced Wednesday that Mark Martinez has been promoted from associate head coach to executive head coach and given a contract through 2017. Athletic director Jim Sterk says he’s not sure when Gwynn will return. “We’re hopeful,” Sterk said. “We want Coach as a part of our program as long as he wants to be, but I’m just not sure at this time. We’re just basically extending his current contract a year and then we’ll see where we are this time next year, and we can address it at that time.” Gwynn was last with the Aztecs on March 25. He has had two operations for cancer in his right cheek since August 2010. In a complicated surgery in February 2012, surgeons removed a facial nerve because it was intertwined with a tumor inside his right cheek. They grafted a nerve from Gwynn’s neck to help him eventually regain facial movement. Martinez took over the day-to-day duties for a majority of this season while Gwynn focused on his health. The Aztecs finished 42-21, including victories in nine of their final 11 games entering
the NCAA tournament. SDSU won the Mountain West Conference tournament before losing two straight games in the NCAA regionals. SDSU had a MWC-high six players selected in last week’s big league draft, the most for the program since 2007. “We’ve got a good group that is running the program and Tony’s been the leader of that,” Sterk said. “They’ve done a good job in his absence and we want to continue the momentum of the program.” In a statement, Martinez thanked Gwynn and Sterk. “Tony’s work here over the years has laid the foundation and given the program the opportunity to achieve success on and off the field. His main focus has been stability and this new contract will help ensure that stability and continuity in the coaching staff,” Martinez said. “I appreciate his faith in me as we continue working toward building the program into a national power.” San Diego State reached the NCAA regionals for the second straight year and third time in six seasons. In 20 seasons with the San Diego Padres, the leftyswinging Gwynn had 3,141 hits, a .338 average, won eight NL batting titles and played in the franchise’s only two World Series. He was a two-sport star at SDSU, playing point guard on the basketball team as well as playing baseball. He still holds SDSU’s game, season and career records for assists.

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish celebrates with catcher Chris Gimenez after the final out against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
Darvish pitches first shutout THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ARLINGTON, Texas — Yu Darvish pitched his first complete game in the majors, Shin-Soo Choo broke a long hitless streak with a three-run double and the Texas Rangers denied Miami’s bid for a record interleague winning streak, beating the Marlins 6-0 on Wednesday night. Darvish (7-2) struck out the side in the eighth to end a streak of one baserunner in each of the first seven innings for the Marlins. The Japanese ace finished his 73rd career start with his 10th strikeout, getting Garrett Jones swinging to complete a six-hitter. The Marlins had to settle for tying the New York Yankees (2003-04) and Tampa Bay (2004) for the longest interleague winning streak at 13 games. It was Miami’s first interleague loss since Aug. 12 at Kansas City. Jacob Turner (2-4) was the loser. Rays 6, Cardinals 3: Desmond Jennings had a two-run single in a fourrun fourth inning and Tampa Bay snapped a club-record 31-inning scoring drought in a victory over St. Louis. Tampa Bay won for just the second time in 16 games after having been shut out in its previous three contests. The Rays had scored 35 runs over the previous 15 games. Astros 5, Diamondbacks 1: Chris Carter homered twice and Dallas Keuchel pitched eight strong innings for Houston. Keuchel (8-3) won for the sixth time in seven starts. He allowed four hits and a run, striking out five and lowering his ERA to 2.38.
NATIONAL LEAGUE Reds 5, Dodgers 0: Johnny Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in six innings, and Joey Votto and Jay Bruce — the missing core of Cincinnati’s batting order much of the season — each drove in runs, leading the Reds past Los Angeles. Cueto (6-5) followed his shortest start of the season with one of his most dominating. He gave up three singles and didn’t walk a batter, leaving after his 112th pitch. Cueto lasted only five innings during an 8-0 loss to Philadelphia on Friday night. Jonathan Broxton escaped a basesloaded, one-out threat in the seventh by getting Hanley Ramirez to ground into a double play. Phillies 3, Padres 0: Reid Brignac hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to lift Philadelphia past San Diego, giving the Phillies consecutive victories for the first time since a threegame streak May 17-20. Nick Vincent (0-2) walked Domonic
Brown with one out and hit Carlos Ruiz. Brignac then sent a 2-0 pitch into the right-field seats for his first homer with the Phillies and his second walk-off hit in two weeks. Rockies 8, Braves 2: Tyler Matzek pitched two-hit ball for the first seven innings of his major league debut before faltering in the eighth, and Colorado beat Atlanta. The left-hander retired the first 13 hitters and 21 of 23 before allowing three straight singles to start the eighth. He’s the third Colorado pitcher in the last six days to make his debut. Matzek (1-0) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out seven in sevenplus innings. He also had his first hit and first run. The Rockies had lost 11 of 12. Brewers 3, Mets 1: Jonathan Lucroy had three hits and Wily Peralta (6-5) pitched into the seventh inning to send Milwaukee past slumping New York. Lucroy doubled twice and drove in a run, raising his batting average to .341. Pirates 4, Cubs 2: Andrew McCutchen homered and reached base four times to help Pittsburgh beat Chicago. Pittsburgh pounded Jason Hammel (6-4) for 11 hits in five innings, snapping his streaks of 14 1-3 innings without allowing a run and 52 innings without allowing a homer when McCutchen hit his 10th in the first. Nationals 6, Giants 2: Jayson Werth hit his first homer in almost a month and drove in three runs, and Washington capitalized on Matt Cain’s erratic start to earn its fourth straight win. Cain (1-4) walked the first three batters he faced before Adam LaRoche’s two-run single highlighted a three-run first inning. Werth’s solo shot in the fifth and two-run single in the ninth provided the rest of the pop for the Nationals, who have won 10 of 12, including the last three at San Francisco.
AMERICAN LEAUGE Orioles 6, Red Sox 0: Wei-Yin Chen allowed four hits over seven innings, Chris Davis homered and Baltimore beat struggling Boston at soggy Camden Yards. Nick Hundley had two hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who yielded only one run in winning two of three from the defending World Series champions. Chen (7-2) did not return after rain delayed the game for 1 hour, 38 minutes in the middle of the seventh. The Taiwanese left-hander had a seasonhigh seven strikeouts, walked none and was aided by three double plays. Rubby De La Rosa (1-2) needed only 15 pitches to dig himself and the Red Sox
a 3-0 hole. Steve Pearce walked and scored on a double by Adam Jones before Davis went deep. White Sox 8, Tigers 2: Jose Abreu hit an early homer off Justin Verlander (6-6), then singled to start a seven-run burst in the sixth inning that sent John Danks and Chicago past Detroit. Abreu went 3-for-4 with a walk and scored twice. The Cuban rookie has 19 home runs and 50 RBIs this season. Twins 7, Blue Jays 2: Josh Willingham hit a two-run home run, and Minnesota’s Phil Hughes (7-2) struck out a season-high nine to win in Toronto for the first time in almost three years. Kendrys Morales had three of Minnesota’s season-high 16 hits to help the Twins improve to 5-2 against Toronto. Morales is 6-for-13 with three RBIs since making his Twins debut Monday. Royals 4, Indians 1: Yordano Ventura (4-5) dominated Cleveland for seven stingy innings, and Kansas City scored all of its runs on sacrifice flies. The four sacrifice flies tied a franchise record, and the Royals became only the second team to score four runs all on sacrifice flies since it became an official stat in 1954. The Montreal Expos did it in an 8-4, 14-inning loss to the Chicago Cubs on May 28, 1980, according to STATS. Yankees 4, Mariners 2: Masahiro Tanaka struck out 11 and became the second pitcher in the majors with 10 wins, throwing a complete game for New York. Tanaka (10-1) won his fourth straight start. He was two outs away from his second shutout before giving up a tworun homer to Robinson Cano in the ninth. Tanaka allowed six hits and walked one. He tied for the wins lead with Toronto’s Mark Buehrle, who is 10-2. New York’s Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI single in the third. Two innings later, with Seattle starter Chris Young (5-4) struggling, Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer that barely cleared the wall in rightcenter field. The game-breaking shot was Teixeira’s 11th homer of the season. Athletics 7, Angels 1: Stephen Vogt hit his first home run of the season, a two-run shot against Jered Weaver, and Oakland increased its AL West lead over Los Angeles to 3 1/2 games. Tommy Milone (4-3) allowed a run and six hits in 6 2-3 innings with four strikeouts and two walks. The left-hander is 4-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his last seven starts overall, and 4-0 with a 3.54 ERA in five career starts at Angel Stadium.
Miami reviews issues from Game 3 loss MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James has learned an important lesson during his journey from 19-year-old rookie to two-time NBA champion: Never talk back to the coach during a film session. “Let him make his point, whether he’s right or wrong, and you live with it and move on,” James said. Especially when the coach has as much to show his players as Erik Spoelstra did to James and the Miami Heat on Wednesday. Miami’s defense didn’t offer much resistance early in Game 3 of the NBA Finals; the San Antonio Spurs played like they were on the court by themselves. San Antonio made 19 of its first 21 shots and shot a finals-record 75.8 percent in the first half of a 111-92 victory. Just like last year, Game 3 The Associated Press was a blowout that left the Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra watches from the sideline during Heat facing a 2-1 deficit. Game 3 of the NBA finals against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. Miami came back to win the
series, so nobody was overreacting to what happened Tuesday, especially since the Spurs themselves don’t expect to shoot that way again. But the Heat have things to clean up before Game 4 on Thursday, or they risk going back to San Antonio facing the end of their title reign. “You’re always on edge in the postseason, but I don’t want to be concerned at this point,” James said. “For us, we have to make the adjustments.” The Spurs had the same lead last year after a 113-77 victory in Game 3, a start-tofinish beating that was even more thorough than Tuesday’s win. So they were taking no satisfaction in their position, and certainly not comparing it. “I don’t think about last year at all at this point,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “I don’t think about last
year Game 3, Game 4, at all. This is a different animal and I’m just concerned about the game tomorrow night.” The bigger concerns belong to the Heat, whose defense was also sliced up by the Spurs in the fourth quarter of Game 1. So Spoelstra gathered his team to look at the painful tape of Tuesday’s performance, which featured among its problems: —Chris Bosh getting only four shot attempts after scoring 18 points in Games 1 and 2. —James trying to do too much to rally the Heat and ending up with seven of their 20 turnovers. —Mario Chalmers missing all five shots and falling to 3 for 12 in the finals. “We did not play a good basketball game,” Spoelstra said. “All of us have owned that. It doesn’t matter ultimately how many you lose by or what the game is like. You
have to learn from it,move on.” Spoelstra said watching themselves get clobbered on tape was “painful” and “frustrating,” but necessary. He wouldn’t reveal what he told his players, but whatever it was, James wouldn’t have argued. That’s a lesson he said he learned “quite a few years ago, when you realize that it wouldn’t change anything.” “You know, the coach is always right,” James added. “It’s like a teacher. They’re always right, and that’s fine. That’s fair. They make the rules and we’ve got to live by them.” Spoelstra’s process suits the Heat, who have won 13 straight postseason games following a loss. They followed last year’s Game 3 noshow with a rout of their own to swing the series back in their favor, and are confident they can make corrections today.

Sports Felix wins 200 at Bislett Games
The Associated Press
Phil Mickelson hits out of the native area on the fifth hole during the first round of the U.S. Open today.
Rough has been replaced by weeds PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Some of the names at the U.S. Open sound a little different. Kiss Me Quick. Fleabane. Toad flax. They are among thousands of plants thriving at Pinehurst No. 2 after a 2011 restoration project to the course’s natural look from more than a half-century ago. Yet those areas of natural growth also have plenty of what most people would call weeds in an unkempt yard. This is not the typical pristine look of a course hosting a major championship. Pinehurst looks a lot rougher than the last time the U.S. Open came here in 2005. “It is what they want to call undergrowth,” said Curtis Strange, a twotime U.S. Open champion and ESPN analyst. “I call it weeds. It is everything that you have seen in the worst- kept lawn you’ve ever seen in your life. “It is dandelions growing up 12 to 15 inches, it’s low growing weeds, and in some cases it’s actually difficult to find the golf ball.” Well, that depends on where it lands. The natural areas have replaced the thick green swaths of high grass typically surrounding the fairways and greens. In some spots, the rough is little
more than sandy patches scattered between pine needles or leaves with a few ankle-deep weeds on level terrain. In others, the ball will vanish in lurking grassy clumps or among plants growing hip-high. “This golf course at Pinehurst, you have more chances for rub of the green, good and bad then maybe any other Open,” Joe Ogilvie said Wednesday on the driving range. “The element of chance is at the forefront here, and I think guys will embrace it.” The revamped rough is the most noticeable piece of Pinehurst’s renovation, restoring some of the past natural look while making the course easier to maintain going forward. “It’s different,” Billy Hurley III said coming off the putting green. “Never played a gold course like it. It’s cool.” Danesha Seth Carley, an assistant professor of crop science at North Carolina State University, assisted on the restoration. That work began in February 2010 with an ecological survey that studies what types of plants were growing here, figuring out which were ones that the course wanted to keep, which they wanted to remove and which they wanted to relocate. Carley said that most of the course’s 75 identified plant species are native to the region. That makes them easier to
grow, while having natural areas means Pinehurst Resort officials use less water than they would to make grass grow thick and high in the rough. Carley is hoping that that Pinehurst’s changes will stand out this weekend and during the U.S. Women’s Open next week. “We hope that everybody will see these practices can really enhance the look of a course — the sustainability element, the economics, but really start to educate people that these aren’t weeds,” Carley said. “Some of these really desirable species, it’s just we have to sort of modify the way we think about them.” Ogilvie liked the new look. He pointed to the green conditions down the driving range — minus those natural rough areas — and called them unsustainable long term for the sport. “They planted a lot of that stuff so they want it to be there,” he said. “... When you put me in that native area, it fools me into a false sense of, “OK, I can hit a certain shot out of this.’ I probably can’t, but when you start putting questions in the golfer’s mind, that’s when chaos happens. “I think that’s fun to watch for the viewers, it’s fun to watch for the spectators. It’s miserable for us because it adds a whole different element.”
Golfer disqualified himself from Open BY PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press
PINEHURST, N.C. — Jason Millard packed his bags, tossed his clubs in the car, and headed off to Pinehurst No. 2 to play in his first major championship. It should’ve been the thrill of a lifetime. Instead, he turned the car around. “I couldn’t be at peace about it,” Millard said Wednesday, one day before the start of a U.S. Open he could’ve been playing in but will have to watch on television — if he can bear to watch at all. What gnawed at him was maybe, just maybe, he had cheated. Not intentionally, for sure. Perhaps not at all. But the lingering doubt was enough for Millard to give up what could be the chance of a lifetime. “I want to be at Pinehurst right now with a free conscience,” he said when reached on his cellphone. “I wish it never happened. Unfortunately, it did.” What happened was a scenario unique to golf, the one sport that relies on its players to largely do their own officiating. Millard may have touched the sand ever so slightly with his club before hitting a plugged shot out of a bunker during sectional qualifying in Memphis, Tennessee, last week. It didn’t really affect his shot, but “grounding” a club is against the rules and requires a twoshot penalty. No one else saw it. There’s no video of the shot. And Millard just isn’t sure. “Right about the time I was taking my swing is when I saw what I think was an indentation in the sand,” he said. “That little image keeps popping up in my head right now. But it happened so fast. I really don’t know.”

In this photo provided by Middle Tennessee State University, MTSU golfer Jason Millard tees off during the NCAA Divison 1 men's golf championship at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla. Millard signed for a 68-68 score, without a penalty, and wound up earning a spot in the U.S. Open. He wanted to celebrate but couldn’t. Not with that shot playing over and over in his mind. Did he ground the club? Was that tiny crevice in the sand really there? Was he just imagining the whole thing? Last Saturday, Millard and his caddie (who wasn’t at the sectional qualifier) headed out from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the nearly eight-hour drive to Pinehurst. They made it about 90 minutes before Millard pulled into a convenience store and began searching for a number to the U.S. Golf Association. He wouldn’t be going any farther. He had decided to turn himself in. “There was something in my heart,” he said, “telling me this didn’t feel right.” Millard disqualified himself for signing an erroneous scorecard. If he had taken a
two-shot penalty on the day of the qualifier, he still would’ve missed the Open by a single shot. “I feel like the way I played that day, I deserved to make it,” Millard said. “I’ve never called a penalty on myself for grounding a club in the bunker. Unfortunately, it happened at the absolutely worst time.” The timing couldn’t have been better for Sam Love, who just finished his college career at AlabamaBirmingham. He was the second alternate in Memphis; when Millard dropped out, Love got in. “I really respect him for that,” Love said in the bowels of the Pinehurst clubhouse after a practice round. “He could’ve easily just played this tournament and nobody would’ve ever known.” When Love tees off Thursday afternoon in the opening round, Millard will be at home in Tennessee. He plans to watch at least some of the tournament on TV, but
knows it won’t go down easily. “I haven’t really watched any of the coverage yet,” said Millard, a two-time AllAmerican during his college career at Middle Tennessee State. “I’m sure I will at some point, especially the last round. I’ve played Pinehurst before. I like watching tournaments, especially on courses I’ve played before.” Of course, he’d much rather be playing. “Unfortunately, this is what happens in life,” Millard said. “Hopefully, I’ll be back there one day.” He’s already dealt with issues far more serious than missing a golf tournament. His father Eddie, who steered him to the game and drove him to all his tournaments as a kid, died in April 2013 from leukemia. Millard’s mother, Debbie, can barely get around after being stricken with multiple sclerosis. Jason, in fact, still lives with his mom when he’s not on the road trying to qualify for PGA Tour and Web.com events. He pays her bills, does the grocery shipping, takes care of odds and ends around the house. Millard was thinking about his dad when trying to decide whether to disqualify himself from the Open. “He was pretty much my best friend,” Millard said. “When stuff would happen, I always called him first. In this instance, I definitely would’ve called him first, talked to him about it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t.” Millard is only 24, with plenty of golf still ahead of him. He surely will have more chances to qualify for the Open. That said, there are no guarantees in life. This might be as close as he gets. If that’s the case, at least he can go through the rest of his years with a clear conscience. “I’m at peace,” Millard said, “with my decision.”
OSLO, Norway (AP) — Allyson Felix showed she was getting back to her best by winning the 200 meters at the Bislett Games on Wednesday, while there was further American success in the long jump, triple jump and shot put. Felix, the Olympic and three-time world champion, won in 22.73 seconds, ahead of Jodie Williams of Britain in 22.97, and Myriam Soumare of France in 22.98. Soumare earlier won the 100. “I just wanted to work on some of the things I’d been doing in practice. The speed isn’t quite there, but it’s coming and hopefully the rest of the season will just keep progressing,” said Felix, who endured an injuryplagued 2013. “It’s going to take me a little bit to get back to that top form but I’m just blessed to be running on track. This is what I love so I’m having fun out there.” Murielle Ahoure of Ivory Coast, expected to be Felix’s main challenger, could manage only fifth. Tianna Bartoletta of the U.S. jumped a year-leading 7.02 meters to win the women’s long jump, Will Claye led an American 1-2 in the men’s triple jump, and Joe Kovacs won the shot put. “I can tell you I would not have thought before the competition that 21.14 (meters) would be enough to win,” Kovacs said. Soumare produced a season-best 11.18 to win the 100 ahead of Americans Lekeisha Lawson and Muna Lee. “Very good evening for me,” Soumare said. “But I’m
tired, believe me.” With Usain Bolt still working his way back from a foot injury, Trinidad and Tobago’s Richard Thompson won the men’s 100 in a slow 10.02 seconds, ahead of Frenchman Jimmy Vicaut, and Britain’s Adam Gemili. Former world champion Kim Collins was fourth. Frenchman Pascal Martinot-Lagarde ran a year-leading 13.12 to win the 110 hurdles ahead of Jamaican Andrew Riley and Russia’s Sergey Shubenkov. Another Frenchman, Renaud Lavillenie, won the men’s pole vault for his third win from three starts in Oslo. European 1,500 champion Henrik Ingebrigtsen set a Norwegian record in the Dream Mile but could finish only fourth, behind last year’s winner Ayanleh Souleiman of Djibouti, who won in 3 minutes, 49.49 seconds. “A perfect race for me,” Souleiman said. Blanka Vlasic finished second in the high jump on her season debut with 1.98 meters. The Croatian performed a celebratory dance on clearing it but the win went to Mariya Kuchina, who cleared it in fewer attempts — a personal best for the Russian. Yenew Alamirew of Ethiopia won the 5,000, Jairus Kipchoge Birech of Kenya the 3,000 steeplechase, Jamaica’s Kaliese Spencer made it three in a row in the women’s 400 hurdles, Kenya’s Eunice Jepkoech Sum won the 800, and Jamaica’s Novlene Williams-Mills the 400.
Laura Roeseler won her heat in the 800. Mike Berry won his qualifying heat in the 400 for Oregon’s men to advance to the final. Oregon also missed some chances Wednesday. Annie Leblanc was third in her heat of the 800 meters, just missing the final. In the javelin, multi-sport standout Liz Brenner placed 17th, failing to score for the Ducks. Like Leblanc, Oregon’s Boru Guyota was third in his heat of the 800 meters and did not advance to the final. Texas junior Ryan Crouser won the shot put at 69-31⁄2 for his third straight title in the event, Florida junior Fawn Miller took the javelin at 190-8, and Mississippi junior Sam Kendricks won 1 the pole vault at 18-8 ⁄4. Crouser, who is an Oregon native, hurt his left foot on his final throw and was going for X-rays following his victory. “I always make it a goal of mine to end on my best throw, and I’ve done it every meet but one this season,” he said. “I did it again but it kind of cost me a little bit.” After five events in the decathlon, Texas sophomore Johannes Hock was leading with 4,243 points, followed by Wisconsin junior Zach Ziemek with 4,223. Oregon’s Dakotah Keys and Mitch Modin were in seventh and eighth place, respectively in the event, which concludes today.
Oregon women lead team race after first day From Page B1 On the women’s side, Texas is ranked No. 1 by the USTFCCCA, followed by Texas A&M. The thirdranked Ducks, coming off their sixth straight Pac-12 title, have not won an outdoor team title since 1985. Kansas is the defending women’s champion. Most of the events Wednesday were semifinals. Oregon’s women failed to advance in the 400 relay because of a dropped baton, which could hurt the Ducks’ chances for a team title. Princeton sophomore Julia Ratcliffe won the hammer with a throw of 219 feet, 5 inches, becoming the school’s first woman to win an NCAA title. Oregon’s Jenna Prandini won the long jump with a leap of 21-6, becoming the first Duck to win a title in the event. The Ducks also got three points in the hammer throw, where Jillian Weir finished sixth. Oregon led the team race with 13 points after the opening day. Prandini also qualified for the final in the 100 meters, while Phyllis Francis advanced in the 400 and
SWIMMING Lakers will use Mingus pool From Page B1 The team will primarily work out at the Mingus Park pool. “We got bids from both pools,” Herbert said, also referring to the North Bend Municipal Pool. “We may still use North Bend if Mingus is unavailable at times. (Mingus) didn’t have as many things going on throughout the day. They were comparable in price. It’s just availability. North Bend has a lot more going on in their pool.” Bullock said the recruits she has talked to aren’t concerned about working out in an outdoor pool. Their only concern is the water temperature, which is the same as at competition pools. She can’t wait to get
started in the fall, when she will work with older swimmers, a big change from the kids she currently teaches. “I’m really looking forward to that,” she said of helping experienced swimmers make minor tweaks to perfect their strokes. “My love is the technical side of the sport. “Some of them are really good. Some of them have all kinds of potential.” Kathe McNutt, who runs the Mingus Park pool, expects Bullock will thrive in the new role. “I think she’ll do great,” McNutt said. “She’s very organized and works real well with other people.” McNutt, who also coaches Marshfield’s team, is looking forward to having the new team in town. “I’m way excited for her, the area, the community and Mingus Park Pool,” she said.

Steven Wright, a comedian who specializes in deadpan delivery, said, “Right now I’m having amnesia and deja vu at the same time.” Cast your mind back to yesterday’s column. Then look at this one. Maybe you will have a Steven Wright moment. West is defending against four hearts. He leads off with the club ace: six, queen, nine. How should he hope to defeat the contract? The bidding is instructive. North is
right to make a takeout double over one club. True, if South does not have a five-card major, the ensuing 4-3 major-suit fit might be worse than a 53 or 5-4 diamond fit. But a good South will have a five-card major. East made a pre-emptive jump raise to three clubs, promising five or more clubs and a weak hand. With game-invitational or greater strength, he would have responded with an artificial two no-trump. (When responder has a big balanced hand, he starts with redouble over an opponent’s takeout double.) South cue-bid four clubs to show a strong two-suiter. (With a good one-suiter, he would have jumped in that suit.) Note East’s play of the club queen. When a defender cannot win a trick, he plays top of touching honors (assuming he can afford to do so, of course). Now West should see four defensive tricks: two clubs, the heart king and a diamond ruff. At trick two, not later, West must shift to his singleton diamond. He then gets in with the heart king, underleads his club king to give East the lead, and receives a diamond ruff.
