This year, April took a chill pill

By Nick Budnick • The Bulletin SALEM — Last fall, on the campaign trail, Tiffany Telfer had to learn to call her mother by her first name. Then, upon becoming her chief of staff at the Capitol, Tiffany had to, for decorum’s sake, use her mother’s title: “Senator.” Sen. Chris Telfer, R-Bend, is still “Mom” in the Salem apartment they share during the legislative session, Tiffany Telfer says. But as for what she should call the senator in the car, between home and work, the 37-year-old says she’s never really sure. This amorphous situation is not unusual at the Capitol. Many lawmakers, including three others from Central Oregon, employ relatives. There’s nothing illegal about it — lawmakers are exempted from the anti-nepotism rules that apply to most public employees. But when family members become employer and employee, it does create strange labor-management dynamics. “We don’t always agree — we never have, ever since she learned the word, ‘no,’” Chris Telfer said. “Occasionally we’ll start to act like mom and daughter and it’s like ‘Whoa!’ … I say, ‘You know, you can be fired.’” See Capitol / A7

Despite a pleasant last day, April 2011 will go into the books as one of the coldest Aprils in Central Oregon and around the Northwest in years. National Weather Service stations around the region put the average temperature during April significantly below the historical average (between 1971 and 2000, the 30-year period on which that figure is based). In Redmond, April was actually colder than March, with average temperatures 6.3 degrees below normal. Steve Pierce, vice president of the Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorology Society, said April in Portland was the coldest in 36 years, and while he hasn’t gone through all the data for Central Oregon, he expects it will look much the same. “Six degrees below normal at Redmond — I would be shocked if there was another April that cold probably since the mid-’70s,” Pierce said. “1974, ’75 (there) was a very strong La Niña, and that was the last time a lot of cities in the Northwest set record lows.” See April / A6

IN THE LEGISLATURE

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Republican leaders, activists and donors, anxious that the party’s initial presidential field could squander a chance to capture grassroots energy and build a strong case against Barack Obama at the outset of the 2012 race, are stepping up appeals for additional candidates to jump in. And they’re starting with Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and, for the most part, against Donald Trump. See 2012 / A5

Science turns from chimp research; U.S. turns back By Chris Adams

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. — During Lennie’s life under the microscope, science changed. Starting in the 1960s, Lennie, a chimpanzee, was strapped in a spacesuit for U.S. government test flights, and subjected to spinal taps. He was fed a banana

laced with triparanol, a drug already removed from the market for humans. In the 1970s, he was a breeder, used to increase the supply of lab chimps. In the 1980s and 1990s, he was infected with HIV and hepatitis viruses and subjected time and again to blood draws and biopsies. In 2002, Lennie died at a fed-

eral primate facility in the New Mexico desert, where many of his former cage-mates still live. Today, those 180 or so chimps are at the center of a debate between the National Institutes of Health and animal rights activists. Even before Lennie’s death, science was moving from the kind of research that dominated much of his life. But that development might reverse itself, at least in this country. See Chimps / A4

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — It has been the deadliest natural disaster on American soil since Hurricane Katrina. But the government response to the tornadoes that devastated the South has, at least in the first few days, drawn little of the searing criticism aimed at federal agencies back in 2005. In numerous interviews here Friday before President Barack Obama and other officials toured what is now an unimaginable wasteland, residents said they had few complaints about the handling of the aftermath by state, local and federal agencies, particularly the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Axavier Wilson, 20, who survived the storm in a closet as the rest of his house blew away, said he had been impressed that both Gov. Robert Bentley and Obama had visited rapidly. “I don’t think there’s much to mumble and grumble about,” he said. “Everybody feels secure about getting help.” Top officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, were in touch with Bentley shortly after the tornadoes landed in his state Wednesday, according to a timeline provided by FEMA, whose officials contacted the White House about the need for a federal emergency declaration before Alabama had submitted a formal request. Many expressed mild frustration about limits on their access to damaged homes, the pace of road clearing and power restoration, and traffic jams caused by roadblocks and nonfunctioning signals. But most agreed that government and charitable agencies were coping as effectively as feasible with immediate demands for shelter, food, water and medical care, along with search and rescue operations.

Faithful amass in Rome on eve of beatification VATICAN CITY — Hundreds of thousands jammed St. Peter’s Square and the streets around it early this morning for the beatification of Pope John Paul II, a joyful celebration aimed at giving a morale boost to a church scarred by a sex abuse scandal. The scene at dawn around the Vatican was reminiscent of John Paul’s final days in 2005, when hundreds of thousands staged around-the-clock vigils underneath his studio window. Thousands of pilgrims, many of them from John Paul’s native Poland, spent the night in sleeping bags on bridges and in piazzas around town. The Mass, celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI, began at 8 a.m. GMT — the fastest beatification in modern times. Benedict put John Paul on the fast-track for possible sainthood when he dispensed with the traditional five-year waiting period and allowed the beatification process to begin weeks after his April 2, 2005, death. The beatification is taking place despite a steady drumbeat of criticism about the record-fast speed with which John Paul is being honored, and continued outrage about the clerical abuse scandal: Many of the crimes and cover-ups of priests who raped children occurred on John Paul’s 27-year watch. Above, faithful spent the night outside at the Vatican. At right, they hold a vigil at nightfall; John Paul appears on a screen behind them.

Taxes are sticking point in deficit debate Bloomberg News WASHINGTON — Congress will return from its spring recess this week to debate just how large a tax burden Americans can and should shoulder, an issue at the core of the discussion about reducing the federal budget deficit. Many Republicans, determined to prevent tax increases, say federal revenues shouldn’t exceed 18 or 19 percent of gross domestic product. Senate Republicans have offered a constitutional amendment that would cap the federal take below 17 percent of GDP. President Barack Obama, mean-

Armenians to rally in NYC to mark massacre anniversary Bulletin wire reports Members of New Jersey’s sizable Armenian community are expected to turn out in droves today for a ceremony in Times Square commemorating the 96th anniversary of the massacre of more than 1 million Armenians in what is now Turkey during World War I. The killings were carried out by the Ottoman Empire. The Republic of Turkey, the successor state of the empire, has steadfastly denied the word “genocide” is an accurate description of the events. Armenians say their ancestors were rounded up and brutally forced into exile in what today is Syria. Many died along the way. In the U.S., a powerful Armenian community centered in Los Angeles has been pressing for years for Congress to condemn the Armenian massacre. Turkey, which cut military ties to France over a similar action, has reacted with angry threats. A bill to that effect nearly passed in the fall of 2007, gaining a majority of cosponsors and passing a committee vote. But the Bush administration, noting that Turkey is a critical ally pressed for the bill to be withdrawn, and it was.

while, has proposed a budget that would push revenue to 20 percent of GDP by the end of the decade and announced a proposal April 13 that would raise that number even higher. In an economy projected to reach about $24 trillion by the end of the decade, each percentage point represents $240 billion. That means Obama and some Republicans in Congress are more than $700 billion a year apart. The gap represents divergent visions of the size, scope and role of government. The debate over the size of the federal tax burden comes as it stands at

a 60-year low of 14.8 percent of GDP, because of the recent recession and tax cuts. Since World War II, the federal tax take has averaged between 18 and 19 percent of GDP, and that has become the upper limit that Republicans such as Representative Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, do not want to breach. The reluctance of these Republicans to raise taxes separates them from Obama, two bipartisan panels and a bipartisan group of six senators, who maintain that tax increases should be part of a deficit reduction package.

There was a single cry of “Help us” on Friday from a man who watched the president’s motorcade roll through a treeless lunar landscape, but hardly the wails of stunned desperation shouted from New Orleans rooftops. That was a very different kind of storm, of course, with different demands for response. And clearly, disaster recoveries should be judged over months, not days. But the early moments of this operation suggest that certain logistical and political lessons have been learned. Stung by criticism that he waited 12 days to tour the Gulf Coast after last year’s BP oil spill, Obama took barely 40 hours to land in Tuscaloosa, the hardest-hit area in the seven Southern states struck by tornadoes. The storms killed at least 350 people; Alabama officials said that included 254 in their state, with 45 in Tuscaloosa County. By late Thursday, Obama had signed the disaster declaration for Alabama, and subsequently did the same for Georgia and Mississippi. The declarations mean the federal government will pay 75 percent of the uninsured costs of repairing public buildings; that residents can qualify for recovery grants; and that businesses can apply for low-interest loans. In the hardest-hit states, the White House was winning early praise from state, local and congressional leaders of both parties. “They seem to be taking this very seriously,” said Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala. Meanwhile Saturday, the U.S. Army Corps of engineers inched closer to blowing a hole in a Mississippi River levee to try to keep flood waters out of a small Illinois town after a federal appeals court declined to stop the move.

Taliban launches ‘spring offensive’

Syria using ‘any means necessary’ to crush rebellion

Bulletin wire reports

By Borzou Daragahi Los Angeles Times

BEIRUT — Syrian security forces besieging the flashpoint city of Dara have been ordered to use “any means necessary” to crush the rebellion that sparked the weekslong uprising against the regime of President Bashar Assad, a Syrian military source said Saturday. The claim by the military official, who has provided accurate information in the past, could explain the violent response of Syrian security forces in Dara over the last two days, which resembles the take-no-prisoners strategy used by Assad’s father, Hafez Assad, to put down a 1982 rebellion in the central city of Hama. “There have been commands to attend to the situation in Dara as soon as possible and with any means necessary,” the military source told the Los Angeles Times in a brief conversation conducted over the Internet. “Even if this means that the city is to be burned down.” As the regime shrugged off fresh sanctions imposed by the Obama administration and pressed ahead with its harsh crackdown against dissenters, security forces opened fire on the city with tank shells around dawn Saturday, witnesses and residents said, destroying a mosque and shooting civilians. At least four people were killed. There were renewed reports of anti-government demonstrations in a handful of towns around the country, even as human rights groups said they had confirmed 66 deaths in the suppression of nationwide protests Friday.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood builds a formidable party CAIRO — The once outlawed Muslim Brotherhood said Saturday its new political party will contest half of the seats in Egypt’s parliamentary elections in September. Egypt’s largest Islamic group sought to ease concerns that it is intent on bringing about an Islamistdominated parliament. “This is not a religious party, not a theocratic party,” its newly named leader, Mahmoud Mosri, told reporters Saturday. The new party will test to what extent the Brotherhood is willing to moderate its rigid religious discourse to try to win broader support. It is well-positioned to win big in September’s elections, being the best organized political force now that Hosni Mubarak’s ruling party has been disbanded. The activists behind the uprising have yet to catch up and fear they will not be ready by September to rally large numbers of voters.

Walesa in Tunisia to foster transition WARSAW — Lech Walesa has traveled to Tunisia to advise the country’s new leaders on building a democracy. Based on Walesa’s experience, the transition may be a long one. In 1980, Walesa led Lech a strike that Walesa, sparked a former wave of propresident tests, forcing of Poland Poland’s communist rulers to negotiate with workers and fueling a period of relative freedom. A year later, the Solidarity movement was outlawed. It wasn’t until 1989 that communism fell. “A revolution may only take one day, but that doesn’t mean all the problems have been solved,” Walesa, 67, said in an interview. — From wire reports

Libyan officials gave a tour of the house in Tripoli that they said was the one that had been hit by a NATO airstrike just hours after Moammar Gadhafi called for a cease-fire and negotiations. Gadhafi escaped the missile strike, but his youngest son and three grandchildren were reportedly killed.

Gadhafi survives strike that kills son State says Libya’s leader is unharmed in NATO airstrike on home, but 3 grandchildren die By Kareem Fahim and David D. Kirkpatrick New York Times News Service

BENGHAZI, Libya — The government of Moammar Gadhafi said he survived an airstrike in Tripoli late Saturday night that killed one of his civilian sons and three grandchildren in the sharpest intensification yet of the NATO air campaign intended to pressure the Libyan leader from power. The death of Seif al-Arab Moammar Gadhafi, 29, and the grandchildren, all said to be younger than 12, were potentially the first confirmed casualties in the airstrikes on the Libyan capital. The attack struck the house of Seif al-Arab, Gadhafi’s youngest son, when the Libyan leader and his wife were inside. White House spokesman Shin Inouye declined to comment on the developments in Libya, referring questions to NATO. The alliance acknowledged that it had struck a “command and control building in the Bab al-Azizya neighborhood” Saturday evening, but it would not confirm much else. Regardless, the campaign against Libya’s most densely populated areas showed just how broadly NATO is taking its U.N. mandate to protect

civilians. Armed rebels have been battling Gadhafi loyalists for more than two months in an attempt to oust Libya’s ruler of nearly 42 years, and NATO warplanes have been carrying out airstrikes in Libya for the past month as part of a U.N. mandate to protect Libyan civilians. Saturday’s strike marked the first time Gadhafi’s family was being targeted directly. In a news conference early today in Tripoli, a Gadhafi government spokesman called the strike an illegal attack. “This was a direct operation to assassinate the leader of this country,” said the spokesman, Musa Ibrahim. U.S. and NATO officials have said they are not seeking to kill Gadhafi. But frustrated by the evasion and resilience of Gadhafi’s military, NATO has pledged to step up its strikes on the broader instruments of his power, including state television facilities and command centers in the capital.

Rebels rejoice, tepidly Doubts lingered in Benghazi about whether the news was true: In interviews, residents said they were happy about the news, but suspected a ploy by Gadhafi to win sympathy. Ramadan El-Sheikhy, whose brother died in one of Gadhafi’s prisons, said any sympathy was misplaced. “I was truly happy at the news,” he said. “Hopefully, he felt the pain of having a relative killed.” Earlier Saturday, NATO officials had rejected an offer by Gadhafi to call a cease-fire and negotiate. The proposal was delivered amid a rambling and often defiant speech, televised by Libyan

state media. In the pre-dawn speech Saturday, Gadhafi said, “the door to peace is open.” “You are the aggressors. We will negotiate with you. Come, France, Italy, U.K., America, come to negotiate with us. Why are you attacking us?” he asked. An opposition spokesman in Benghazi, Jalal al-Gallal, dismissed Gadhafi’s offers as “public relations for the world.” “We know he’s not being genuine,” al-Gallal said. “He’s not once offered anything and followed through.” The younger Gadhafi had spent much of his time in Germany in recent years. Gadhafi’s children had been increasingly engaged in covering up scandals fit for a “Libyan soap opera,” including negative publicity from extravagant displays of wealth such as a million-dollar private concert by pop diva Beyonce, according to a batch of diplomatic cables released by the secret-spilling WikiLeaks website. But Seif al-Arab remained largely in the shadows, although he had a penchant for fast cars and partying when outside Libya. Ibrahim would not give the names of the three children killed, except to say they were nieces and nephews of Seif al-Arab. A rebel medic, Abdel-Monem Ibsheir, considered the strike a form of justice. “Gadhafi was not far away, meaning he’s not safe,” he said as occasional explosions could be heard throughout the city. “It’s just like our children getting hit here. Now his children are getting hit there.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban on Saturday declared the start of their “spring offensive” in Afghanistan, warning that insurgents plan to attack foreign troops, Afghan security forces and government officials in coming days. While the Taliban have opened the spring fighting season in the past with news releases, this year’s announcement had some new elements, including the assertion that they intended to protect civilians and would attack members of the government-appointed High Peace Council. In a statement, the Taliban warned civilians to avoid public gatherings, military bases and convoys, as well as government buildings. “All Afghan people should bear in mind to keep away from gatherings, convoys and centers of the enemy so that they will not become harmed during attacks,” the statement said. The statement said that in addition to troops, the targets of their operation would include members of the Afghan Cabinet and lawmakers, as well as businessmen working with NATO forces.

Sparing civilians? U.N. officials, who lost eight staff members in an attack last month in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, appealed to the Taliban not to target noncombatants. The inclusion of a promise to protect civilians was welcomed by human rights organizations, but viewed with skepticism by NATO. The most recent U.N. report found that 75 percent of the civilian casualties recorded in 2010 were caused by the Taliban and 16 percent by NATO forces; in the remaining cases the fault could not be determined. NATO commanders have trumpeted successes in Afghanistan since 30,000 additional U.S. troops arrived last year, although they also predicted an increase in violence with the arrival of the spring and summer fighting season. On Friday, senior military officials and Western diplomats warned of a surge in militant attacks during the coming week. Violence across Afghanistan hit record levels in 2010, with civilian and military casualties the worst since U.S.-backed Afghan forces dislodged the Taliban regime in 2001.

Chimps

C OV ER S T ORY

$IJNQTJOUIF6OJUFE4UBUFTA chronology of how chimpanzees were used in research programs and an accounting of how many chimps live in this country by the type of facility they reside in:

the liver; the four chimps in the study underwent weekly blood draws or liver biopsies for about six months. Researchers saw a decrease in the virus, and the institute’s chief scientific officer, John VandeBerg, said the study showed “great promise.�

the NIH said “the United States maintains the only chimpanzee resource worldwideâ€? for hepatitis C research. Most countries don’t have such a resource because they stopped — or never started — chimp testing. GlaxoSmithKline, a drugmaker that’s involved in hepatitis C research, said in 2008 that it would stop chimp research. While chimps had played an important role for three decades, Glaxo said, “the case for using great apes in the future is less clear than it may have been previously.â€? New scientific techniques had helped science move beyond the chimp, it added. Beyond that, the ethics of chimpanzee research have evolved. In its 1997 review, the National Research Council said using chimps was acceptable, but it noted that chimps were different and couldn’t be used like rats, canines or even lesser primates. “The similarity of chimpanzees to humans distinguishes them in substantial ways from other laboratory animals and implies a moral responsibility for the long-term care of chimpanzees that are used for our benefit in scientific research,â€? it said. Given its connection from decades of watching chimps on television or in zoos, the public “expects a high level of respect for the animals,â€? it added. VandeBerg said his Texas institution did treat chimps differently. “They are much closer to humans in every respect than monkeys are, in physiology, immunology, cognitive ability,â€? he said. “We accord chimpanzees a special place among all the animals.â€? They’re used in experiments only if no other animal will do, he said. To animal rights activists, the very act of the research — let alone infecting chimps with viruses — is wrong. The simplest blood draw requires them to be anesthetized by darts. Some animals — such as Lennie — react to that with fear. Asked about that, VandeBerg said: “I haven’t actually witnessed this.â€? “I’m not a veterinarian, and I’m not involved in handling the animals,â€? he added. “I certainly wouldn’t even use the term knockdown. ‌ The chimp is sedated or anesthetized. Certainly there’s some stress.â€? But, he added, human patients experience stress as well. The complaints about regular biopsies, he said, are overstated.

TARGET NO. 1 AT ANNUAL CORRESPONDENTS’ DINNER: TRUMP

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, May 1, 2011 A5

What Obama seeks in a new FBI director By Charlie Savage New York Times News Service

The Associated Press

President Barack Obama used the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday to exact his revenge after weeks of attacks from Donald Trump, joking that the billionaire businessman could bring change to the White House, transforming it from a stately mansion into a tacky casino. Obama used the annual dinner to mock Trump’s presidential ambitions — with Trump in the audience. After a week when Obama released his long-form Hawaii birth certificate, he said Trump could now focus on the serious issues, from whether the moon landing actually happened to “where are Biggie and Tupac?” Trump chuckled at some of the jokes but was clearly

less amused as comedian Seth Meyers picked up where Obama left off. “Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising,” said the “Saturday Night Live” actor, entrusted with providing some of the evening’s comedy. “I just assumed he was running as a joke.” The birth certificate was clearly the key punchline for the evening, which typically offers the president a chance to show off his humorous side. Obama briefly left the dinner as the news broke from Libya that Moammar Gadhafi’s son had been killed. Among the 2,500 in attendance were former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and stars such as Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson.

2012

that he expected others to join. The loudest and most persistent entreaties are directed toward Daniels, who for two terms has shown that fiscal conservatism and political popularity can go hand in hand. Daniels, who says Republicans should be more focused on addressing the country’s fiscal condition, is a veteran of the Reagan and George W. Bush White Houses. An alumni network of those administrations, ranging from top contributors to field operatives, has elevated a whisper campaign into a forceful effort to enlist him. The decision last week by another establishment favorite, Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi, not to pursue a presidential bid has increased pressure on Daniels, who drew national attention Friday for saying he would sign a bill that cuts off Medicaid financing for Planned Parenthood in Indiana. The call for new candidates, which was the topic of some conversation here Friday at a Republican dinner, is hardly universal. Some Republicans point to the 1992 Democratic field, initially derided as uninspiring, which produced President Bill Clinton. But there has been an undercurrent of concern in the party for months. The conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer called the field “split and weak” two weeks ago on Fox News. Peter Wehner, a former adviser to Bush, credited the “lack of fizz” in the field so far with letting Trump gain attention as a potential Republican candidate despite previous contributions to Democrats and even a suggestion for the nation to examine a singlepayer health care system. “At this point there appears to be a flatness to the field,” said Wehner, who has been highly critical of Trump. “There’s a void right now and even clowns can fill voids.” In interviews, Republican governors, state party leaders and key activists urged the candidates to engage more directly. “We’ve lost enough time — let’s start talking about the issues that matter to the people of this country,” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said. “I think they’re all waiting for ‘go-time,’ but the people of South Carolina are saying ‘go.’ Let’s start hearing about the issues.” Pawlenty, who was among the first in the race, said candidates had plenty of time to excite voters. He said a fierce opposition to Obama would unify Republicans and strengthen the field, adding, “The faster, the sooner, the more aggressive we can do that, the better.” Still, as of late last week, it was unclear how many potential candidates would show for Thursday’s debate, on the Fox News Channel. Pawlenty, who will attend, was urging more of his potential rivals to join him. While some Republicans have expressed impatience to get the race started in time to raise ample campaign financing, veterans of races past said the money would flow when the field finally settles. “Hardly anybody’s declared yet, so who are you going to rally around?” said Fred Malek, an investor and longtime Republican fund-raiser who added that he was not concerned about the slow start. “Contributors are waiting until the field is fully formed.”

Continued from A1 “I’m getting letters from all over the damn country, and some of them are pretty moving,” Daniels said in an interview last week at the Capitol in Indianapolis, where his friends believe he is inching closer to exploring a candidacy. He added, “It can’t help but affect you.” The first contests of the primary are at least eight months away, and most of the candidates have yet to fully open their campaigns, but some party leaders worry that Republicans are making a bad first impression by appearing tentative about their prospects against Obama and allowing Donald Trump to grab headlines in the news vacuum of the race’s early stages. The first debate of the nominating contest is Thursday, and party officials believe the presidential field will be all but set by June, giving urgency to the call for more candidates. “The race needs more responsible adults who can actually do the job,” said Fergus Cullen, a former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party. Former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, who leads many polls despite taking few steps to organize a campaign, is quietly asking supporters to be patient. And Jon Huntsman, a former governor of Utah and a relative moderate in a party that has moved to the right, has just returned from his post as ambassador to China to decide whether to join a campaign-inwaiting built by Republicans who see an opening for him. The wish list among Republicans is wide and varied. Sarah Palin, a former governor of Alaska, retains a devoted following. But activists also express a longing for others to step off the sidelines, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the Budget Committee. Parties facing an incumbent president often have trouble establishing the stature of their candidates in the early going. But the challenge for Republicans this time is especially striking given Obama’s vulnerabilities and the passion of the tea party movement that helped propel the party to big gains in Congress and statehouses in 2010. This time, the GOP lacks the establishment-anointed candidate that has led it into every presidential cycle for decades. Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, may come closest to that role, but he has kept a relatively low profile to avoid becoming a target. Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, is well-known but has political and personal liabilities. Newer faces like former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty are barely known to most voters.

What are Republicans hoping for? There is no guarantee that any Republicans on the sidelines would energize the party, but they seem to be getting almost as much attention as those clearly in the race. Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus declared recently that the race was still entirely unformed and

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, having settled on his choices for the next leaders of the Defense Department and the Central Intelligence Agency, is now turning toward filling a third major national security position: director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Robert Mueller, who became the FBI director just a week before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, will complete his 10-year term on Sept. 4, having led the in-progress effort to transform the bureau into a domestic intelligence agency. A small team led by Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder has been evaluating potential successors and, according to officials familiar with the internal deliberations, has reached certain views about the ideal candidate. In particular, officials said, the administration wants someone who shares the philosophy and has the management abilities to press forward with changing the

Officials said the administration wants someone with the management abilities to press forward with changing the bureau’s culture, so that agents focus less on solving crimes that have happened and more on uncovering potential threats. bureau’s culture, so that agents focus less on solving alreadycompleted crimes and more on uncovering potential threats — even at the expense of accumulating arrests and convictions.

Possible contenders They include James Comey, a former deputy attorney general; Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. attorney in Chicago; Raymond Kelly, the New York City police commissioner; Ronald Noble, a former enforcement head at the Treasury Department who now leads Interpol; and Kenneth Wainstein, a former assistant attorney general for national security. Officials say the administra-

tion is also looking for someone who will be easily confirmed and who will be respected both inside the bureau and elsewhere in the intelligence community. Finally, they say, they want someone with the character to be a strong leader during a crisis and to maintain an appropriate level of independence, but who would keep a low political profile and focus on operational matters while deferring to the White House and the Justice Department when it comes to making policy. In many ways the administration appears to be looking for a clone of Mueller, who worked relatively smoothly with four attorneys general of widely divergent personalities and political views,

under both a Republican and a Democratic president. “Bob is a hard person to replace,” Holder told reporters last week. “He has done a really excellent job in transforming the FBI. He is a person who has the confidence of the people in the FBI and people in the intelligence community. He’s a person I’ve worked with for a number of years — he’s a friend. He has the president’s confidence as well. So we want to make sure the person picked to be his successor will be able to fill those really large shoes that he leaves.” Holder said the administration wanted to have the next director in place by the time Mueller is required to step down. He hinted that a nomination could come as early as May, though other officials cautioned that later was more likely. The Senate has been slow to vote on Justice Department nominees lately; by contrast, in 2001, the Senate confirmed Mueller less than a month after his nomination. It is not clear whether there is a front-runner for the job.


A6 Sunday, May 1, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

April Continued from A1 The La Niña phenomenon, which alternates with El Niño every five years or so, is driven by water temperatures in the eastern Pacific Ocean. During La Niña years, cold waters in this region push the jet stream north, bringing lower temperatures and increased moisture to the Northwest. During El Niño years, warmer waters pull the jet stream south, bringing higher-than-normal precipitation to California. This year’s La Niña, the primary driver of weather conditions in the Pacific Northwest, was the strongest since the winter of 195556, Pierce said. At the Redmond Airport, which provides the most comprehensive records of any Central Oregon weather station, April saw just one record low — 15 degrees on April 22, tying the previous record set in 1972. But on 10 different days, the average temperature was at least 10 degrees below the historical normal.

What’s ahead? The good news, Pierce said, is the current La Niña cycle appears to be coming to a close, suggesting a warmer spring next year. “There have only been a few La Niñas or El Niños that have carried over more than two seasons,” he said. “We’re already at season two now, and it’s starting to decay now. It’s unlikely we would see the return of another La Niña returning next winter.” Rob Brooks, forecaster with the National Weather Service office in Pendleton, said the steady flow of small storm systems throughout April also contributed to the cool temperatures. Successive days of clear and sunny conditions were few, Brooks said, preventing the region from warming up faster than clear nights between storms could cool it off. Brooks said today’s forecast anticipates temperatures in the low to mid-60s in most of Central Oregon. Conditions should continue to improve through most of the week, with temperatures in the 70s in Bend for the first time this year Thursday, Brooks said — followed by a chance of showers Friday.

In China, they smoke a third of all Japanese drop cigarettes; will the new ban help? their politeness

over nuke crisis

By Benjamin Haas Los Angeles Times

BEIJING — On sunny days, Xu Dongguang, a manager of a trendy cafe in downtown Beijing, arranges tables outside for patrons to while away the afternoon, reading, drinking coffee and chain-smoking. But starting today, all bars, restaurants, hospitals and other public places in China are slated to become smoke-free, inside and out. A few days before the ban was set to go into effect, many places in Beijing had only heard of the restrictions from news reports, and no one had received an official notice. Xu didn’t have plans to comply. “Our whole restaurant is the smoking section,” he said. “Maybe we’ll try to ask people to go outside, but in the end, the customer is God.” Efforts to ban smoking in public places here have been plagued by false starts and failed campaigns. China, with the world’s largest population, also has the most smokers — more than 300 million — a deeply entrenched smoking culture and little awareness among the general public about the health risks. The current ban was mandated by the State Council, China’s top administrative body, in response to a World Health Organization treaty Beijing signed in 2006 pledging to enact nationwide tobacco-control legislation within five years. China already has missed the deadline by almost five months. The law mandates a penalty of 30,000 yuan, or about $4,600, for owners of establishments that do not comply, but it is still unclear who will enforce the ban and what actions will trigger such a steep fine. Many Chinese businessmen greet each other with rounds of cigarette giving, and it’s rare a business deal that concludes without one party giving the other expensive tobacco. “When I applied for permits (for the bar), I would always give officials cigarettes as a present,” said Lin Tao, a bar owner. One posh brand of smokes readily available in fashionable

TOKYO — Kenji Kadota long followed the dual credo drilled into him during childhood: Hide your anger and trust the powers that be. Yet in the wake of March’s triple whammy of earthquake, tsunami and radiation release, the 55-year-old construction chief has thrown all such cultural lessons out the window. Kadota faults the firm that runs the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant for its mishandling of the nuclear crisis that has followed the March 11 natural disasters. He believes dithering public officials have compounded the public’s anxiety by withholding information about the true dangers facing people who live near the plant. So for the first time in his life, Kadota is speaking up. He’s joined a growing chorus of college students, ruddy-faced fishermen, small-town mayors and even a combative prefecture governor voicing dissatisfaction in a manner highly uncommon in a nation known for taking politeness to the extreme. “Japanese are raised to keep their feelings to themselves, but now that’s impossible,” said Kadota, who complained that officials failed to deliver water and emergency supplies to his hometown of Iwaki, not far

A Chinese man smokes recently at a Beijing bus station. In a nation of 300 million smokers, where many don’t know of the health risks of tobacco, few expect much from a ban effective today. Beijing malls is Panda Cigarettes, which cost 700 yuan, or about $107, a pack. Most brands, however, cost about $2 a pack. In 2008, Zhou Jiugeng, the director of the Nanjing Property Bureau, was sacked after he was seen at a news conference with cigarettes that cost $20 a pack, much more than he could afford on his official salary. China accounts for a third of all cigarettes smoked worldwide, and about 3,000 people die every day here from smoking-related illness, according the World Health Organization. Cigarette smoke contributes to four of the five leading causes of death in China, WHO says. Public health experts doubt that the ban will be immediately effective, citing legal and education obstacles. “I would be very surprised

if it were enforced,” said Sarah England, a technical officer at WHO. “… The law will need to be interpreted by the local and municipal authorities before it has a real impact.” She also noted the lack of a nationwide public education campaign similar to those in the West, so “only 23 percent of adults believe smoking causes cancer or other health problems.” Since most Chinese haven’t been told about the harmful effects of smoking, they don’t see the need to stop. An added burden is the cost of quitting. The medication that helps with giving up tobacco typically costs more than 1,000 yuan, or about $150, about half a month’s salary for the average worker.

from the stricken plant. “We’ve been abandoned. And I am angry.” Criticism of the Japanese government’s handling of the crisis increased Saturday, with a new poll indicating three-quarters of the people disapprove. The embattled prime minister, Naoto Kan, defended his government’s handling of the crisis Saturday, a day after an adviser resigned during a tearful news conference in which he charged that the government was not adequately protecting the population from radiation. Waging protests or posting tirades on Twitter and YouTube, Japanese citizens blame both government officials and Tokyo Electric Power Co. for the release of dangerous radioactivity into the air, soil and sea. “There was already a small segment of people who distrusted nuclear power. But the rest of the public did not have a strong opinion about it, or if they were uneasy they didn’t express it,” said Yukio Maeda, at the University of Tokyo’s Institute of Social Science. “The nuclear accident has made people feel uneasy and in danger, and that has triggered people to express their fears and anger out loud.” The Associated Press and The New York Times contributed to this report.

Capitol Continued from A1 “She says that,” responds Tiffany, “But it’s just an idle threat. I say, ‘You can replace me as chief of staff, but I still will be your daughter.’” For each of the four Central Oregon lawmakers — Rep. Gene Whisnant, R-Sunriver, employs his wife, Josie; Rep. Jason Conger, R-Bend, his son, Jordan; and Rep. John Huffman, R-The Dalles, his wife, Korina — it’s a slightly different story. But they all say it’s a huge help to have their families with them while they are away — both for companionship and for reasons of trust. “She’s bright. She’s intelligent,” Chris Telfer said of her daughter. “She’s as good as any lobbyist in the building, and there’s nobody who’s going to cover your back better than your family.”

How it works It also helps their income: Tiffany Telfer earns $3,178 in gross income per month while the Legislature is in session; Jordan Conger earns $2,900, Korina Huffman $3,975 and Josie Whisnant $1,600. All legislative staff are paid out of the office budget that each lawmaker has for state work — $27,615 for the session — the same budget that pays for office supplies and mailings to constituents. Oregon uses what’s known as a “citizens legislature” model, in which lawmakers meet only part of the year and have other incomes besides their legislative salary of $1,801 a month. As far as state pay, Tiffany Telfer “gets paid more than I do,” says her mother. Those figures don’t include the payments of $123 a day for food and lodging that lawmakers get while the Legislature is in session, amounting to more than $3,000 a month. However, many lawmakers say the ability to pay a family member while in office is key to being able to afford life in public service.

Working together For Gene and Josie Whisnant, working together is nothing new. They’ve done it through most of their 25-year marriage and calculate that they’ve spent more time together than some of their friends who have been couples for 40 years. When they met, Gene Whisnant was a colonel in the Air Force, working in the Pentagon on projects like the Strategic Defense Initiative, while Josie worked as a manager in the wholesale business, selling products to Safeway and Fred Meyer. Gene sometimes found himself helping Josie at work — “He was not a good assistant at all,” she quipped. And then, when he was assigned as a military attache overseas, she joined him on the trip. Normally, the military attache job entails cocktails and golf while being assigned to an embassy, Gene Whisnant said. But in 1991, nine months after they arrived in Belgrade, Yugoslovia, the country descended into civil war. One of the duties of an attache is to gather information, and the Whisnants had jointly undergone training in skills such as covertly taking notes inside one’s pocket using a pencil stub. The Whisnants worked together to gather information about military operations in the war-ridden country, reporting back to the Pentagon on tank movements, safety considerations and the like. These days, at the Capitol, the only warfare is of a partisan nature. But it’s handy to have each other for workdays that often stretch longer than 12 hours. During the session, said Josie Whisnant, “let’s face it — we don’t have lives outside of this.” Upon taking office in January, Jason Conger did as many lawmakers do and gave a job to his top campaign staffer. In this case, that job fell to his 19-year-old son, Jordan. Jordan Conger says he gets a lot of questions from people wondering what it’s like to work for his father. He says it’s great to work for the man he respects the most — and who respects him back — seeking his counsel, and often following it. On Wednesday, the two Congers sat on the House floor together when a bill came up that would establish an ombudsman to help businesses deal with the state. The lawmaker read his staff notes and saw a note there from his son, saying, “This has a fiscal impact, and I have reservations about it.” The two talked, and while Jason Conger agreed with his son’s concerns, he decided businesses needed the help. “I just decided that on balance it should pass,” he said. The two had planned to live together in an apartment in Salem, but then Jordan Conger and

his longtime sweetheart, Hollie, moved up their wedding date to February to avoid interfering with the session. Hollie now works as an assistant in Telfer’s office. “Hollie was like, ‘That’s where I draw the line — we’re not living with your dad,” Jordan Conger recalled. So instead, the father and son live a few hundred feet from each other in the same complex. They talk in the evenings as well, and “we always end up talking about work,” Jordan Conger said. Of all the relatives hired by the Central Oregon delegation, Korina Huffman makes the most money. John Huffman said they tried to pay her the same amount as she was earning in her previous job, as a judicial assistant to a circuit court judge. Huffman said the arrangement is a plus for the taxpayers, as the two can more efficiently handle the job of responding to constituents’ concerns. “She and I always get compliments about how responsive we are,” John said. “I’ve heard from a lot of people that that may not be the case with every legislator.” Nick Budnick can be reached at 503-566-2839 or at nbudnick@bendbulletin.com.

How happy are you? Officials want to know By John Tierney New York Times News Service

SOMERVILLE, Mass. — When they filled out the city’s census forms this spring, the people of Somerville got a new question. On a scale of one to 10, they were asked, “How happy do you feel right now?” Officials here want this Boston suburb to become the first city in the United States to systematically track people’s happiness. Like leaders in Great Britain, France and a few other places, they want to move beyond the traditional measures of success — economic growth — to promote policies that produce more than just material well-being. Monitoring the citizenry’s happiness has been advocated by prominent psychologists and economists, but not without debate over how to do it and whether happiness is even the right thing for politicians to be promoting. The pursuit of happiness may be an inalienable right, but that is not the same as reporting blissful feelings on a questionnaire.

In some ways, Somerville is a perfect test tube for such an experiment. Sandwiched between Harvard and Tufts universities, the city is a blue-collar bastion with a growing population of young professionals and academics. Somewhat less lovely than its upscale neighbor, Cambridge (but with lower rents), Somerville used to be renowned for crime and nicknamed “Slummerville,” but its reputation and priorities have been changing as it gentrifies. “We need to change our mindset in how we serve people,” said Mayor Joseph Curtatone, who has been hailed at the White House for the city’s pioneering program against obesity. He called the happiness survey “a no-brainer” that he approved as soon as it was suggested. “Cities keep careful track of their finances, but a bond rating doesn’t tell us how people feel or why they want to raise a family here or relocate a business here,” Curtatone said. To draw up its questions, Somerville turned to a neighbor,

Daniel Gilbert, a Harvard psychology professor who wrote the 2006 best-seller “Stumbling on Happiness.” Gilbert, who donated his time, is also helping the city do a more detailed telephone survey, using a randomized sample of Somerville’s 76,000 residents. “Social policies are always meant to promote things that promote happiness, so how could it be a bad idea to measure directly the very thing you are trying to maximize?” Gilbert said. “Should we build more parks or highways? Should workers get longer coffee breaks or more vacation days? We don’t have to guess about the answers to these questions.” Somerville officials hope to create a well-being index that they can track over time and perhaps eventually compare with results in neighboring towns (assuming the other towns follow their example). But they acknowledge that figuring out how their policies affect that index will be a challenge. “We want to see what the baseline data tell us and then ex-

pand,” said Tara Acker, director of SomerStat, the city’s program to analyze data. “Is there a correlation between happiness and open space or green space? If we see low levels of satisfaction correlated to low levels of income, perhaps we want more programs aimed at low-income people.” For example, city officials said, the arrival of a new and longsought extension of the Green Line light rail system to Somerville could be a natural experiment to let them track whether happiness goes up among people who live nearby. In Britain, a similar happiness survey is being undertaken this spring at the behest of the prime minister, David Cameron, whose administration proposed such drastic spending cuts that violent protests broke out in the street. France, which has had its own riots, has also been analyzing citizens’ happiness. Fortunately, there has been no such turbulence in Somerville — which prides itself as being the place where Marshmallow Fluff was invented.

Salem Week

Sisters schools to cut a principal, teachers

Examining each week of the 2011 Legislature from a Central Oregon perspective

By Patrick Cliff

Analysis

Public safety cuts are a tense topic By Lauren Dake The Bulletin

SALEM — One label no lawmaker wants is “soft on crime.” Two years ago, the state was figuring out how to carve $60 to $80 million from its public safety budget. It’s a familiar scenario. This year, lawmakers need to slash $100 to $120 million from the approximately $2.4 billion public safety budget. Then and now, lawmakers focused on the Oregon Department of Corrections, which holds the biggest portion of the state’s public safety budget.

To affect the DOC’s budget, the number of incarcerated people needs to decrease. Fewer inmates means fewer staff and relatively fast savings. The cuts made last legislative session set off a political firestorm; some credit them with helping to usher in more Republicans this session. One idea in particular garnered media attention. Lawmakers approved a bill that gave certain inmates the chance to earn more good time, which meant, if a judge allowed it, they could be released sooner. See Safety / B3

The Bulletin

As part of proposed cuts designed to save the Sisters School District more than $1 million, the district will eliminate its elementary school principal position for next year. Besides Jan Silberman, the Sisters Elementary principal, the district is cutting the equivalent of another 15.34 positions. Included in that number is one elementary teaching position and the full-time equivalent of 1.71 middle school teachers and 7.75 high school teachers. The proposal also calls for cutting two positions from its facilities staff. Those cuts are projected to save the district about $950,000 in a roughly $12 million budget. Under the proposal, the district will also defer next year’s scheduled cost-of-living raises and step

increases. Sisters schools may also save money by sharing some services with surrounding school districts. Board chairwoman Christine Jones said making the proposed cuts is difficult, but that Superintendent Jim Golden has done his best to preserve the quality of schools. Jones pointed out that the proposed cuts do not include any class day reductions. “It’s very depressing to have to make the cuts in staff that we have to make,” Jones said. “They’re not good (cuts), but I think they’re a very sound way to go forward in a very difficult time.” The elementary school will not be without leadership, according to Jones. Golden will handle broad issues, including questions around curriculum at the elementary school. The district will also ap-

point a teacher to serve as an on-site administrator. The school has an enrollment of 360. Both Jones and board member Glen Lasken said they supported Golden’s proposal to eliminate the principal position. Lasken just hopes the move is temporary. “This is a stop-gap measure that will get us through perhaps the next few years,” Lasken said. With a proposal in place, the district must still negotiate with the union representing district staff. Lasken hopes the cuts pass as proposed. “Our budget calls for a full school year, and we’re going to try our best to hold onto that,” he said. “We have the kids in classrooms.” Patrick Cliff can be reached at 541-633-2161 or at pcliff@bendbulletin.com.

IN BRIEF Cougar spotted up from Farewell Bend A cougar sighting in the Deschutes River canyon upstream from Farewell Bend Park has authorities cautioning residents and users of the trails in the area to be on the alert. Bend Police Department Community Service Officer Bob Gaede said police have received two reports of a cougar in the canyon in the last four days, the first near the River Rim subdivision and the second Saturday morning near the Central Oregon Canal. Gaede said that while the majority of reported cougar sightings are found to be domestic cats or dogs, police believe the recent sightings are believed to be legitimate. Police, U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services and the Bend Park and Recreation District are working together to determine if the cat is passing through or lingering. Signs were posted along trails in the area Saturday alerting people to use caution. “We haven’t seen any indications of aggression toward people at this point,” Gaede said. “But obviously, it’s a wild animal, and you can’t predict what it’s going to do.” Anyone who encounters a cougar is advised to make noise, act tall and large, and slowly back away. Bend Police ask that anyone who spots a cougar in the city call 911 to report the sighting. — Bulletin staff report

Upper McKenzie residents have access to dental hygiene at home By Randi Bjornstad The (Eugene) Register-Guard

SPRINGFIELD — There’s good news for people who live in the Upper McKenzie River Valley, which stretches up Highway 126 from Vida east to Belknap Springs: Because you are considered an “underserved area” in terms of distance to dental services, you have access to a dental hygienist — Lilli Kemp — who will come right to your door to clean, seal and otherwise help you protect your teeth and gums from disease. As Kemp said last September in her request to the Oregon Board of Dentistry to designate the Upper McKenzie River Valley as an underserved area, “The nearest dentist’s office is in Springfield, which is up to 55 miles away from the residents of the upper valley.” “Many of the residents are elderly persons for whom the dangerous road conditions during much of the year (are) a serious impediment to traveling to Springfield or Eugene for basic dental care,” she said. “And for working families, it’s often a hardship to take time off from work to make the journey to town for dental hygiene care. Too often, they simply do without.” Less than a month later, the

Dental hygienist Lilli Kemp readies her mobile equipment last month in the dining room of her Springfield home. Kemp provides dental services for those who live in rural areas. state dentistry board agreed. As a result, Kemp — or any other state-licensed dental hygienist who also has a “limited access permit” from the state — can provide mobile dental hygiene services to McKenzie River Valley residents, whether elderly, disabled, homebound or simply geographically too isolated to get to dental care easily. Just one other area in Oregon

has been designated an underserved area by the state dentistry board so far, and that’s the Oakridge-Westfir area. There, dental hygienist Christa Olsson maintains a storefront where she provides dental hygiene services to people along the Highway 58 corridor. Since 1997, the state board of dentistry has issued limited access permits that allow already

licensed dental hygienists to provide most dental hygiene services without supervision by a dentist. They take their expertise into facilities such as nursing homes, group care homes, residential treatment or detention programs, nursery schools and public or nonprofit community health clinics. Kemp said her interest in providing in-home dental hygiene stemmed from her own mother’s situation as a homebound elderly person. “I originally chose to work with homebound adults. I could have gone to facilities, but I love the one-on-one relationship with my clients. And I like helping them in the comfort of their homes.” To do that, she keeps a complete dental work station stowed in a closet in her home, just off the McKenzie Highway east of Springfield. It includes a portable chair and technician’s stool, compressor, ultrasonic machine, warm neck wrap, cloth towels and sterile tools. “I can pack up my car in minutes,” Kemp said. “When I get to the patient’s home, it takes me about 15 minutes to set up, about an hour to do the necessary procedures and another 30 minutes to tear down and clean up.”

Safety Continued from B1 The memory of the political attack ads is still lingering. This year, conversations around sentencing reform and cuts to public safety are tense and have taken place behind closed doors. “(It’s) had a bit of a chilling effect on things this session,” said Sen. Chip Shields, D-Portland, who was on the committee last session tasked with cutting the public safety budget. This session, as the state faces an approximate $3.5 billion revenue shortfall, the stakes could be higher. “I think we’re more deliberative,” said Sen. Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene, who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee and a work group looking at the public safety budget. “We’ve been through this two years ago, where we had to make grueling decisions. This time is a similar level of changes, and maybe more because of the amount of shortfall and without federal money to buffer it. It’s for real.”

The options Rep. Jeff Barker, D-Aloha, the co-vice chair of the Ways and Means subcommittee on public safety, agreed that talk surrounding the public safety budget has been quiet. One reason, he said, is because everything is still on the table. Lawmakers are talking about closing prisons. They are considering reduced charges for certain drug possessions. They are looking at shifting the prison population to community corrections and deliberating about what changes need to be made to sentencing measures. “There is tension in the room because people see different solutions and some people are saying, ‘I can’t go there,’” said Barker, a retired policeman. Rep. Andy Olson, R-Albany, also a retired policeman, said people will likely be making decisions they do not want to make. “Honestly, I don’t know how you carve out $100 to $120 million out of (the public safety budget). I’m struggling with that because I think they are bare bones right now,” he said. The governor’s proposed budget has lawmakers continuing to postpone Measure 57, which voters approved in 2008. The sentencing measure would put repeat drug and property crime offenders behind bars. If nothing is done to the measure this session, it’s expected to take effect January 2012. “That would of course increase the prison population, and if you have an increase to the prison population, you have additional beds and that costs money,” said Doug Harcleroad, a retired district attorney with Oregon AntiCrime Alliance. An idea that seems to have some early buy-in is to modify the measure. It would take some of the Measure 57 offenders and give judges more discretion over where to send them. The goal would be to keep more of them in the community under supervision and provide programming instead of locking them behind bars. “It would take a partnership

between the state, counties and local governments to make it effectively work,” Prozanski said. There is also talk of closing prisons, although no one is elaborating much. Finding consensus on which prison to close would be difficult. “The one in my district or the one in your district? Let’s close the one in your district because these are jobs,” Harcleroad said. And even with closing a prison, there are costs. “We’ve talked about closing a prison, and it’s expensive to close one. By the time you lay people off, pay them unemployment, you save $3 million, that’s peanuts,” Barker said. “I’ve said, let’s close three prisons in the (Willamette) Valley and put the (inmates) up in Deer Ridge. … My thought is, let’s get rid of these old facilities. … Sell the land and we would have a modern facility. But it’s expensive to fire up Deer Ridge.” Many lawmakers are also hoping to clarify Measure 73, passed by voters last November. The measure’s intent was to send people who had three driving under the influence convictions in 10 years to jail for a minimum of 90 days. But now that the measure has passed, it’s become clear it could result in longer prison sentences. More days in prison is costly to the state. Even the measure’s author, Kevin Mannix, a former lawmaker, said he’s open to clarifying the statute. But he said it needs to come as part of a package of sentencing reform. He’s open to diverting more people to community jails if the counties are given state resources for supervision and programming. Fixing Measure 73 would required a two-thirds majority vote in both the Senate and House. Another one of Mannix’s mandatory-minimum measures, Measure 11, for violent crimes, is also being talked about. One suggestion was to allow juveniles sentenced under the mea-

sure a chance for earlier release, but doing so would also take a two-thirds majority vote in both chambers. “I don’t think we’ll get there this time,” Barker said.

What’s next In 2009, when House Bill 3508 passed, Shields thought the most controversial part of the bill was the suspension of Measure 57. But the early release portion of the bill is what caught the media’s attention. Reporters were showing up at his office, he said, and cameras were thrust into his face. “Sen. Shields, why did you let sex offenders out of prison?” Shields said the reporters asked. Shields stands by the bill, saying it was a courageous vote. He pointed out that the public safety budget also includes state troopers and the Oregon Youth Authority. It funds forensic crime labs, the Department of Justice and domestic violence programs. He said he’s not optimistic that major changes will happen this session. “The question before the Legislature is, do we want to continue to let the public safety system fall apart so we can continue to spend $1.4 billion on criminals,” Shields said. The only way for reform to happen this session, Shields said, is if all sides can agree to stick together. “I think it could happen, and (the way) to do it and make people comfortable politically is for the four caucuses to step up and say, ‘We’re going to do the right thing for Oregon and not be afraid of political repercussions,’” Shields said.

EUGENE — A woman accused of killing a Eugene police officer said during a police interrogation that she knew she had shot an officer and she believed police had been following her before the shooting, according to court documents. Cheryl Kidd, 56, who is accused of killing Officer Chris Kilcullen on April 22, has a developmental disability and a history of mental illness, the Eugene Register-Guard reported. “I didn’t shoot a guy, I shot a cop,” Kidd told Springfield police Detective George Crolly, according to court documents made public Friday. Kidd has pleaded not guilty to a charge of aggravated murder, which carries the possibility of the death penalty. Her attorney,

Gordon Mallon, said he will file court documents related to questions about Kidd’s mental fitness. During the interview with Crolly, Kidd reportedly had trouble focusing and would only occasionally answer the questions put to her. In search warrants executed on Kidd’s Buick Skylark and her Springfield apartment, police found psychiatric and narcotic medications. In the car, police also found a sock with “numerous .38 Special ammunition,” the documents said. Crolly wrote that Kidd believed the police were “always after her.” After acknowledging to Crolly that she shot Kilcullen, according to Crolly’s report, Kidd then said the gun she used was in her purse in the Buick. “When asked about why she

shot the officer,” Crolly wrote, “Kidd told me, ‘They told me I’m a mongrel idiot. They’re always after me, you know. I’m an erratic driver and reckless.’” Police say Kilcullen was trying to stop Kidd after she ran a red light, but she fled. Kilcullen caught up to the driver in nearby Springfield, where he was fatally shot.

Bend-Portland flights anticipated 75 years ago 100 YEARS AGO For the week ending April 30, 1911 BIG WOOLEN MILL FOR BEND The location at Bend of the largest woolen mill in the Pacific Northwest is assured. A contract for the erection of a $250,000 mill immediately after the completion of the Oregon Trunk Railroad to this place, stipulating that it shall be in operation within six months after that date, and that it shall employ 300 workers, has been signed by Dr. J.P. Bailey, on behalf of his organization, the Union Woolen Mills Company of Washougal and Union. In return, Bend furnishes four acres of suitable land gratis, the city rebates taxes to the amount of $25,000, and 300 horse power is supplied for a term of years upon an arrangement, details of which as yet are not completed. Manager Sawhill of the Commercial Club, who arranged the contract with Dr. Bailey in Portland last week, is working out the details of the undertaking. A number of power propositions are under consideration, as are the sites for the mill. Definite data concerning this end of the enterprise and many of the details, as yet undecided, will be settled and announced in the course of the next few weeks. This will be a six set mill, having 50 complete looms and 5,000 spindles, the same as that operated at the Oregon City plant. However, the Bend establishment will be superior to the other, inasmuch all the machinery will be entirely modern. Between 300 and 400 workers will be employed. Three separate buildings probably will be erected to house the plant, all of brick, and the largest with dimensions of 60 feet by 400 feet, of three stories. Reckoning on the conservative basis of three dependents to each worker the coming of the mill will mean an increase in Bend’s population of at least 1,000 persons. All operatives are recruited from the ranks of skilled labor and will be imported. According to Dr. Bailey the payroll of the Bend plant will be about $2,000 a week. This figure is reckoned on a single 10 hour shift. However, it is the company’s announced intention to operate a double shift, thus increasing the payroll figures at least 60 percent.

Y E S T E R D AY In addition to the woolen mill, a scouring plant will be installed of sufficient capacity to scour all the wool in this section. As Oregon wool shrinks from 50 to 75 percent in weight in scouring, the advantages of scouring here before export shipping to the east, in the resulting enormous reduction in freight cost, will tend to centralize all Central Oregon wool at Bend, both for local and export use. The mill will have a manufacturing capacity of 1,200,000 pounds on a single ten hour shift. Its chief output will be blankets. The Washougal mill has been making these for the Chinese trade for several years, during all of which a double shift has been employed.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending April 30, 1936 PLANE SERVICE TO START ON MONDAY Inauguration of air travel service between Bend and Portland has been announced for Monday, with the flying time between the two cities set for 1 hour and 15 minutes, it was announced here today by Myrl Hoover and Lawrence J. Sohler. Twice a week service is planned, from the Bend airport, north of town. Swan Island will be the Portland terminus. The six-place Travelair plane recently brought here from Minneapolis, Minn., by Sohler is to be used in linking Portland and Bend. Mount Hood Stages, Inc., and airplane tickets are to be interchangeable, Hoover has announced. This will make it possible for Central Oregon people to go to Portland by airplane and return by bus, or vice versa. Sohler, pilot of the six-place Curtis-Wright plane, is to use the direct air route over the mountains and will fly just north of Mount Jefferson. This region is considered the most scenic of the entire Cascades, with Mount Hood looming up in the north. Sohler placed the new plane in operation here last Sunday, when he took passengers aloft from the local airport.

SNOWPLOW ON WAY TO SANTIAM PASS Brought into Central Oregon from Klamath Falls, the state highway department rotary plow to be used in clearing snow from Santiam and South Santiam highways between Suttle and Fish lakes was slowly moving into the Hogg Pass region from Redmond this afternoon. It is not expected that the rotary crew will be able to do much work this evening, but clearing work should be well under way tomorrow. The rotary will have to cut through about 13.2 miles of snow, four feet deep along a two mile section across the divide. Snow removal work will be carried on to a point near the end of South Santiam summit grade, near Fish lake. It is planned to keep all traffic off the route until the roadbed dries a bit. It is not expected that the detour, to be used until the McKenzie pass is open to traffic, will be open until about May 15. WOMAN IN RED HAS NO REGRETS Anna Sage, deported yesterday, admitted two things before she sailed for her native Romania — she does not feel that the government double crossed her by sending her back to Romania and she has no regrets for her part in betraying John Dillinger to federal agents who shot him down. “He was a nice man,” she said “but he had it coming to him.”

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending April 30, 1961 THE DIFFERENCE IN GASOLINE PRICES (EDITORIAL) A Bend resident passed through Marion Forks en route here the other day. He stopped to buy gas. The price was 25 cents per gallon for regular. A few hours later, he stopped again to gas up at La Pine. The same brand of gas was 40 cents a gallon. That’s a difference of 15 cents a gallon. His question to this was “Why?” We couldn’t answer the question, so we asked an oil company distributor. He said that it was relatively simple, that the oil company was selling gas cheaper to the Marion Forks dealer than to the La Pine dealer.

For young cancer patient, playhouse is a place of joy By Emily Gillespie The (Corvallis) Gazette-Times

CORVALLIS — Standing 3 feet tall, Lilli Trippe pranced through her playhouse wearing a purple Rapunzel dress. The playhouse is fit for a princess: The walls are painted pink, cupcake curtains hang from the window and three chairs small enough for a 3-year-old sit on the floor boasting Hello Kitty upholstery. “She loves her playhouse,” said Lilli’s mom, Kristin Trippe, of Kings Valley. For Kristin Trippe and her husband, Aaron, the playhouse is yet another sign of how their community has come together to offer support for their daughter, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 8 months. “You go through life and you don’t see the support network until something like this happens,” she said. “It just blossoms. It doesn’t make it go away, but it makes it so much better.” Since her diagnosis, Lilli has had two bone-marrow transplants, survived two cardiac arrests and endured countless hours of chemotherapy and blood transfusions. Her diagnosis is terminal. She is currently on an experimental treatment. Despite the looming worries of cancer cells, Lilli continues to dress up as a princess and enjoys each moment of every day. “She finds happiness everywhere she goes,” Kristin Trippe said. “She has no idea that this is not how life is supposed to be.” The playhouse was Lilli’s second gift from the Children’s Cancer Association. Her first was a trip to Disney World last July. That’s where she got the idea to have her own playhouse. To help complete the house, staff members from the Children’s Cancer Association contacted Home

Lilli Trippe, 3, pages through a book about dinosaurs last month in her playhouse. For parents Kristin and Aaron Trippe, the playhouse is yet another sign of how their community has come together to support their daughter, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 8 months. Depot, and that’s when Chris Evans, contractor desk supervisor at the company’s Corvallis store, first encountered Lilli. “She’s a glowing ray of sunshine, and I’m happy to have crossed paths with her,” Evans said. Evans spearheaded the building of Lilli’s playhouse, contacting Home Depot vendors and contractors to find donors for the materials. When Corvallis Home Depot employees asked Lilli what she wanted in her playhouse, she rattled off a long list of features, including a play kitchen, a loft with a bed, a fireplace and a small television. When the house was finished — a painting party earlier this month applied the final touches — everything on Lilli’s list was there. “They got her everything,” said a surprised Kristin Trippe. Lilli helped as well: “I used my hammer named Pat and I hammered some nails,” she said.

The building project took four days at the end of March, and last weekend’s painting party was held in conjunction with a barbecue put on by Kristin Trippe to thank the volunteers. And the project came with a bonus for Kristin and Aaron Trippe: The team of volunteers spruced up the Trippes’ yard, adding rows of flowers and trimming trees. The playhouse is “something just for Lilli,” Evans explained. “We wanted to do something for Aaron and Kristin, so we thought we’d give joy to the whole yard.” Kristin Trippe said she is extremely grateful for the support that she has received over the years from both close friends and people she just met, such as Evans and the Home Depot volunteers. “It makes you see how much good people have inside of them,” she said. “I’d give up the cancer in a minute, but it’s really shifted my perspective on the community. They’ve given me such a tremendous gift.”

He said this was probably an off-shoot of the continuing gas price war which has been going on in the Willamette Valley at various times during the past three years. Over there, as most of us who visit once in a while know, a person can buy regular gasoline at prices ranging from 21 to 30 cents a gallon, depending on how hot the “war” is. The distributor and the service station operator haven’t much to say really. Apparently, the major oil companies in effect subsidize their dealers during these price wars. In areas where there are no price wars, such as Bend, the major suppliers keep the price up so that distributors and service station operators are able to make only a small margin of profit. Which still doesn’t answer the question, “Why?” It is obvious however, that something is haywire and that the public, at least the Bend public, is paying through the nose. TOUR OF MILITARY FORTS DUE IN MID-OREGON ON WEEKEND By Phil F. Brogan Close to 100 persons will join this weekend in a military forts tour through Central Oregon led by the Oregon Historical society and the Oregon Civil War Commission. The group will visit historic Fort Dalles on the Columbia then head inland for a crossing of the Deschutes at the Sherar site, across which Peter Skene Ogden led his brigade late in 1826 on his beaver expedition into Crooked River region. From there they will drive to Shaniko, once the world’s largest wool shipping point, to Antelope, where Howard Maupin in the early 1860s provided meals for travelers moving over the trail from The Dalles to the John Day gold fields. They will head east to Fossil then back to Mitchell and Camp Watson, where in 1864 was buried young Lt. Stephen Watson and two of his volunteer soldiers, following a frontal attack on Indians in the Ochocos near old Camp Maury. The trip to the old Maury site will be early Sunday morning, making it possible for the tour-

ists to reach Camp Polk in the Sisters area around noon for the meeting under the pine near the edge of Squaw Creek.

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending April 30, 1986 REAGAN SAYS U.S. ‘STANDING TALL’ President Reagan, who 11 days-ago ordered the bombing of terrorist targets in Libya, declared Saturday that the United States is demonstrating that terrorists who attack Americans had better be prepared for the consequences. Reagan described America as “standing tall” and said, “we’re reminding the globe that America still stands for liberty.” The president, who has said that he would order the bombing of Syria and Iran, too, if he had “irrefutable evidence” that they had committed terrorist acts against Americans, told a welcoming ceremony here, “We’re showing the world’s dictators and terrorists that when they perpetrate their cowardly acts upon citizens of the United States, they had

best be prepared to meet the consequences. POLL SHOWS SUPPORT FOR LIBYA ATTACK By lopsided majorities, Americans say that they think President Reagan acted properly in bombing Libya, and they would support military attacks on Syria and Iran if those nations were found to be sponsoring terrorism, according to a Washington Post-ABC News public-opinion poll. Only one in five surveyed, however, said he thinks the April 14 strike against Tripoli and other Libyan sites would reduce international terrorism or make the world safer. And four of every five people said they think that a major terrorist act in the United States is at least somewhat likely during 1986, according to the poll. In thrust, the survey, taken from Thursday through Monday evening, shows the public to be strongly behind aggressive action against terrorism but wary of rocky times ahead.

David Hackett led Kennedy efforts vs. poverty, crime By Dennis Hevesi New York Times News Service

David Hackett, who led the Kennedy administration’s efforts to stem juvenile crime and helped create a domestic equivalent to the Peace Corps, died on April 23 in Rockville, Md. He was 84 and lived in Bethesda, Md. Hackett, a close friend of Robert F. Kennedy’s since their prep school days at Milton Academy in Massachusetts, was executive director of the President’s Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime from 1961 to 1964. The committee was created by President John F. Kennedy in May 1961 after Hackett accompanied Robert Kennedy, then the attorney general, on a shirt-sleeve tour of poor New York neighborhoods, interviewing members of street gangs. John F. Kennedy declared a five-year “total attack” on juvenile delinquency. With Hackett as director and an initial budget of $10 million, the committee provided grants to state, local and private agencies for programs offering counseling to juvenile offenders, connecting them to job opportunities and training youth counselors. In an interview on Tuesday, Joseph P. Kennedy II, Robert Kennedy’s eldest son and a former Massachusetts congress-

man, said Hackett’s work had far-reaching impact. “The outgrowth of that effort was the establishment of over a thousand agencies across the country,” Kennedy said. “Every major city and many rural communities now have community action agencies that began with the juvenile delinquency program and grew into the broader mission of fighting poverty.” In 1962, Hackett was also chairman of a study group calling for the creation of a National Service Corps, a domestic version of the Peace Corps. That concept contributed to the establishment two years later of Volunteers in Service to America as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty. After leaving government service, Hackett was director of the R.F.K. Memorial, a nonprofit organization established after the assassination of Robert Kennedy, which focused on poverty and human rights issues. In that capacity he created the Youth Policy Institute, which tracked federal spending and policy on youth issues, family planning and job training and also published an influential monthly newsletter. It now runs more than 100 programs around the country, with the goal of lifting families out of poverty.

David Wilkerson started Times Square Church New York Times News Service The Rev. David Wilkerson, an evangelical minister and author who founded the Times Square Church to minister to the downtrodden in one of Manhattan’s seedier precincts, but whose later writings included apocalyptic predictions for New York City and beyond, died Wednesday in an automobile accident in Texas. He was 79 and lived near Tyler, Texas. His wife, Gwendolyn, was seriously injured but is expected to recover, Wilkerson’s brother, the Rev. Donald Wilkerson, said Thursday. David Wilkerson was known to a broad readership through his many books. His most famous, “The Cross and the Switchblade” (1963), chronicled his ministry among gang members in Brooklyn, N.Y., where he had arrived as a young preacher in the late 1950s.

Celebrated Chilean poet Gonzalo Rojas dies at 94 By Adam Bernstein The Washington Post

Gonzalo Rojas, a Chileanborn writer whose lyrical explorations of eroticism and mortality made him one of the most celebrated Spanish-language poets of his generation, died Monday at a care facility in Santiago after a stroke. He was 94. The seventh son of a coalmine technician, Rojas taught himself to read when he was a child. He recalled being thrilled by the sounds and textures of language when he heard a brother cry out during a violent hail storm that nearly destroyed the family’s zinc roof. His brother shouted the word for lightning: “Re-lampa-go,” Rojas later said, elongating the syllables for dramatic effect. “Since then, I have lived in the zumbido, the buzzing of words,” he said. In a career spanning more than seven decades, Rojas was an author, university lecturer and diplomat. After a long exile during the Pinochet dictatorship, he received the Spanish-speaking world’s most prestigious literary honors, including the Cervantes Prize of Spain, the Octavio Paz Award of Mexico and Chile’s National Prize for Literature. Chilean playwright, novelist and essayist Ariel Dorfman called Rojas a “gentle volcano of poetry,” whose long, flowing stanzas illuminated the life forces of nature, the forbearance of miners and the “everyday lyricism” of women. One Rojas poem, “Las hermosas” (“The Beauties”), starts on a note of voyeuristic excitement: Electric and naked in burning marble out from the skin through dresses, swelling, defiant on a quick tide, they stomp the world, they stamp the lucky star with their spiked heels, and they sprout up like wild plants in the street and put out their hard aroma greenly. As a poet, Rojas absorbed various movements that proliferated in Chile and abroad, including a flirtation with surrealism in the late 1930s. Rebelling against modern trends toward the colloquial, he instead embraced the highly descriptive symbolist poetry that bloomed

in Europe in the 19th century. It was evocative, intimate and universal. One of his most anthologized poems, “Coal,” coursed with sympathy for the downtrodden. Mother, he is almost here: let us open the door, give me that light, I want to receive him before my brothers do. Let me take him a good glass of wine so he will feel better and hug me and kiss me, and stick me with his beard. There he is, he is coming home muddy, raging against his bad luck, furious from exploitation, dead of hunger, there he is under his Castilian poncho. Gonzalo Rojas Pizarro was born Dec. 20, 1916, in the port town of Lebu several hundred

miles south of Santiago. His father died of a respiratory illness a few years later, and his mother moved her eight children to the nearby city of Concepcion. Gonzalo became a scholarship student to a boarding school and received degrees in law and Spanish literature at the University of Chile in Santiago. He spent a period in the Atacama desert teaching literacy to miners and founded the literary journal Antarctica in Santiago before gaining broader recognition with the publication of his first volume, “La miseria del hombre” (“The Misery of Man”) in 1948. Rojas published nearly 40 poetry collections, including “Contra la muerte” (“Against Death,” 1964), “Oscuro” (“Darkness”) in 1977 and “Del relampago” (“Of Lightning”) in 1981.

Harriet Patricia Watson May 4, 1925 – April 9, 2011 Harriet Patricia “Pat” Watson passed into the hands of God on Saturday, April 9, 2011, lovingly surrounded by her family. Pat was born in Dubois, Idaho in 1925, to James and Nellie Russell. Her family moved to Los Angeles when she was young She attended Garfield High School (Class of ’43) where she met her sweetheart for life, Richard Watson. Dick and Pat were married at the Santa Barbara Mission in 1947, and settled in Montebello, California. After Dick retired they made many trips to visit lifelong friends in Bend, Oregon and eventually moved there. She attended business school in Los Angeles and worked for the Los Angeles County General Hospital before she and Dick started their family. She devoted her life to being a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, daughter-in-law and sister. In addition to being a homemaker, she helped Dick run his wholesale meat business and subsequent trucking company. Some of her favorite activities were dancing, sunbathing, singing, playing piano and reading books She enjoyed camping and trips to the beach with family and friends. Pat learned cross-country skiing after moving to Bend. Pat and Dick crossed the country in their RV. They also traveled to Australia and New Zealand, England, Ireland, and The Netherlands, and Pat often accompanied her husband to many of his US Navy reunions across the United States every year. Pat was predeceased by her parents, and her brothers; James and John (“Jack”). She is survived by her husband, Richard C. Watson; her daughters, Cathryn Watson of Bend, Jeri Mason of Sisters, Susan Friebe of Willamina, Chris Kennedy of Redmond; grandson, Colin Canale, granddaughters, Emily Friebe, Roxanne Bujanda, Dallas Arvizo, Jaedan Kennedy; greatgrandson, Evan Friebe, as well as her sisters-in-law, cousins, and many nieces and nephews. Pat will always be remembered for her loving spirit her cooking skills, her fondness of all animals and her kindness and gentleness that has touched the hearts of many. She will truly be missed by all that knew her.

Alis usually caused by a stroke, though he read about it in his neuthough it also has been associ- rological training, he had never ated with multiple sclerosis, head encountered it before in real life. The Oreg o nian

“I’m amazed by it, and intrigued by it,” he said. It’s unclear what caused her speech pattern to change. Dental surgeries do not pose a stroke risk and the drug that Butler says the dentist used to sedate her — Halcion — has not been linked to strokes. Her dentist, Gregory Herkert, did not want to comment. Lowenkopf said the syndrome has been linked to injuries in different areas of the brain — the left frontal lobe, the right side and the cerebellum, a “little brain” tucked back on the bottom. The damage is almost always very small, which is why the syndrome is so rare. Strokes usually involve a bigger injury with a bigger impact, depriving a patient of the ability to speak intelligibly, for example, or to understand others. “What happens with foreign accent syndrome to the best of our understanding is that a very, very small part of the speech area is affected so that the normal intonation of speech gets altered,” he said. He believes that patients adapt, making them sound to others as if they have an accent. She would like to have a brain scan — to compare with one she had years ago — but can’t afford it and her insurance won’t shell out the money. Tests show she has no physical problems. “Everything works,” she said, “It just works odd.” She and her family have taken the change in stride, even delighting in it. “This is not a tragedy,” said her

husband, Glen Butler, a retired Coast Guard official. “The only thing that changed was her voice. She’s still her.” She doesn’t even hear her new accent — unless she watches herself on a video. “I’m very lucky it was not something that was devastating,” she said. “On a scale of one to 100 this doesn’t even come up to a one.”

A world of accents, all a bit off Other native English language speakers with the syndrome

have sounded Russian, Chinese, German, Spanish, Jamaican and Italian. But none of the accents is pure, linguists say. Listen closely and you’ll hear a mix of sounds caused by the way people produce consonants and vowels or emphasize certain syllables, making them sound foreign. William Katz, professor of communication disorders at the University of Texas at Dallas, has studied a number of patients since 1987 in his speech lab. “We want to understand the circuits that underlie it and what we can do to fix it,” he said. “It’s kind

of puzzling. Sometimes patients get very frustrated.” Butler doubts she could be retrained to speak like an Oregonian again. “Others can pretend to talk in different ways,” she said. “I can’t. That’s gone.” Gone, too, is her shyness. Before the surgery, she was painfully shy. No longer. “Before I was just an ordinary person,” she said. “Now everybody is intrigued. They want to know where you’re from. So I’ve learned in the last year that it’s OK to be social. I like it actually.”

L I F E ON THE EDGE Tracing California’s spectacular Big Sur coastline By John Gottberg Anderson

heavy rains cause landslides that may isolate Big Sur visitors and residents from the rest of California for weeks at a time. Already in 2011, a pair of slides — the first in March, the second in April — cut off the main highway access from both the north and south, forcing travelers onto the little-used NacimientoFergusson Road from the east.

Fortunately for my recent visit, the northend slide, which took out a section of highway 12 miles south of Carmel at Rocky Point, was reopened for travel on the day of my arrival. (At its south end, near Lucia, Highway 1 isn’t expected to be open before mid-May.) That enabled me to retrace the route that nature lovers have been traveling since the highway first opened in 1937. According to a popular website, www.big sur-coastline.com, Big Sur was originally populated by Native American tribes. The Spanish rarely visited after establishing missions at Carmel and Jolon in 1770, but during the subsequent period of Mexican rule (18221847) available land was turned into cattle ranches.

Kindle e-books coming to libraries this year Kindle users should be able to check out e-books from libraries throughout Central Oregon sometime this year, but it’s uncertain how soon. Amazon announced last week that it would allow users of its Kindle devices and apps to check out e-books from some public libraries, a reversal of previous policy. But local library staff say they’ve been given no firm timeline on when it will happen other than this year. “We just need to be ready for increased demand when it does happen, since Kindle is about 50 percent of the e-reader market,” said Wylie Ackerman of the Deschutes Public Library system. Right now, libraries in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties offer e-books that function on other brands of e-readers.

SPOTLIGHT Pappy’s Pizzeria will donate to United Way On Monday in Redmond and Wednesday in Bend, Pappy’s Pizzeria will donate 50 percent of in-store food orders to United Way when presented with a fundraiser flier. The promotion is part of a United Way fundraiser for needy families. Fliers can be downloaded at www.deschutes unitedway.org or picked up at the organization’s office, 1130 N.W. Harriman St. in Bend. Pappy’s is located at 1655 N. Highway 97 in Redmond or 20265 Meyer Drive in Bend, next to Fred Meyer. Contact: www .deschutesunitedway.org or www .pappyspizzeria.com. — From staff reports

Ready for the Sunriver Music Festival? Event’s 34th year will be the final one for longtime artistic director and conductor Smith By David Jasper The Bulletin

Artistic director and conductor Lawrence Leighton Smith will step down after the 2011 Sunriver Music Festival. Smith has been with the festival for 23 seasons.

We begin this preview of Sunriver Music Festival’s 34th season with the following bit of sad news: “Our artistic director, Lawrence Leighton Smith, is retiring this year. This is his last season,” says Executive Director Pam Beezley. Smith did his first stint with the festival from 1978 to 1983. He returned in 1994 and has been with the festival since. At any rate, the show must go on. The festival begins Aug. 7 with the Festival Faire fundraiser dinner and auction in the Great Hall in Sunriver. On Aug. 9, George Hanson, artistic director and conductor of the Tucson Symphonic Orchestra, will con-

duct the Pops Concert at Bend High School. The concert features guest pianist Thomas Lauderdale of Portland band Pink Martini performing Gershwin’s Piano Concerto, F Major. For that tune, former Oregon Symphony conductor Frank Diliberto will conduct. “That whole concert is going to be Gershwin, Bernstein and Berlin,” says Beezley. “(Lauderdale) is such a showman. He is so fun. We had him here in 2008 doing ‘Rhapsody in Blue.’ Oh. People loved it.” Hanson will also conduct the first of the festival’s four Classical Concerts on Aug. 11 at Bend’s Tower Theater. The concert features Jay Ungar’s “Ashokan Farewell,” Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, Op.

56 in A minor. Guest mountain dulcimer player Stephen Seifert will perform on Conni Ellisor’s “Blackberry Winter” dulcimer concerto during the concert. “It’s a concerto that’s very contemporary. It’s really lovely. It’s very different,” Beezley says. She hints that when Smith passes the baton, so to speak, it could be to Hanson. “I hesitate to go that far, but (he’s) certainly a consideration,” she says. “It will be fun for our audience to get to know him.” Smith will be on hand for the rest of the festival’s Classical Concerts. The Aug. 12 Classical Concert II, “Night at the Opera,” will also be held at the Tower. See Sunriver / C8

Twin who bullied as a child becomes controlling adult

What’s behind the dearth of female ‘Idol’ finalists? C O M M E N TA RY

By Ann Powers

“American Idol” contestants Haley Reinhart, left, and Lauren Alaina arrive at the champagne launch of the fifth annual BritWeek in Los Angeles last week. BritWeek honors the influences the British have had on Southern California.

Los Angeles Times

Dear Abby: My fraternal twin, “Marla,” was always difficult. When we were kids she was physically and emotionally abusive. She stopped hitting me only after I outgrew her in high school, but she continues to try to control me. When I started dating my wife, “Gloria,” Marla would tell me Gloria wasn’t good enough for me. At first, it gave me serious doubts about the woman who is the love of my life. We’re now expecting our first child — a daughter — and Marla has been offering parenting advice that goes against what Gloria and I feel about child-rearing. When I politely decline her advice, Marla accuses me of being “selfish” for not appreciating it. A parenting book was delivered anonymously to our home. It took me a few days to remember that Marla had mentioned it. Five days later she sent me an angry e-mail because I hadn’t thanked her for it. Spats like this usually result in our not speaking for months. I harbor no ill will toward my sister and often don’t know why we’re fighting. She seems to thrive on the drama she creates with these artificial rifts. I want my daughter exposed to healthy adult relationships, not abusive ones. How do I tell my twin I love her, but she must stop trying to control me and create conflict where none exists? I don’t want to have to cut her out of my life. — Soon-To-Be Dad Dear Soon-To-Be Dad: The patterns of a lifetime won’t change without work on both your parts. Tell your twin that if she wants to be a part of your life — and your daughter’s — some radical changes will be necessary. Offer to join her in family therapy. If she agrees, recognize that change won’t be easy for her. If she refuses, do what you must to protect your

DEAR ABBY child from her controlling and manipulative behavior. Dear Abby: I am a 25-yearold man. I have been in a twoyear relationship with the most beautiful woman I have ever met. “Amanda” is 23, and she has just told me she plans on joining the Navy. I respect her decision and courage to better her life and future career. However, my feelings are deeply hurt. I don’t understand how, after all this time, she could change course and put our relationship on the back burner. Amanda says she wants us to stay together and promises that everything will be all right. I love her with all my heart. Do you think after four years in the Navy our love will be as strong? At our age, is it worth keeping ourselves exclusive to each other? — In Shock in California Dear In Shock: I wish you had mentioned why Amanda has decided to join the military. Could it be she’s doing it because, in return for her service, they will pay for her education? If that’s the case, then respect her decision and her determination to better her life. Whether your romance can weather the separation her service in the Navy will require depends, frankly, on how much each of you has invested in it. Other couples have managed. My advice is to take it day by day and you’ll have your answer. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Blame the teenyboppers! “American Idol,” everyone agrees, has gone to the dollies. Young women have long been held accountable for pop’s occasional loss of reason, from the bobby sox brigade that first embraced Frank Swoonatra to the hordes afflicted with Bieber Fever. Now this perennial crisis has overtaken “Idol.” With only two women remaining in the finalists’ pool, critics, fans and even Executive Producer Ken Warwick called for a halt to the reign of fast-voting misses and mums, which has thrown the game in favor of anything in three-day stubble. Female voters do play a major role in the “Idol” outcome. But guess what? A decade’s worth of Recording Industry Association of America statistics proves that women buy as much music as men. They’re largely responsible for the stardom of Taylor Swift, Susan Boyle and Nicki Minaj, so to say they only vote with their (heterosexual) libidos is to grossly misjudge what women want. And if you think girls only like fluffy mainstream hits, ask Arcade Fire, standard-bearers for equal-opportunity indie rock, or Jack White, who’s structured his entire career around partnerships with women like Meg White and Alison Mosshart. Women care as much about the new Lady Gaga video as they do about cuddly heartthrobs like Casey Abrams. The show regularly features the likes of Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani, who’ve contributed to the mash-up of empowerment

and allure that characterizes the “post-feminist” pop star. Just look to the judges’ table, in fact, and you’ll see the face of one such artist: Jennifer Lopez. Though sometimes derided for not being a powerhouse singer, Lopez has been a major player in redefining what a diva is now: not necessarily an octavescaling knockout like Pia Toscano, but a multifaceted dancer/actress/vocalist/style icon. “Idol” can’t turn out a top woman not because its voting constituency is boy crazy, but because its own musical framework is sadly irrelevant when it comes to what female pop stars do in the 21st century. The occasional undeniable diva breaks through — Adele is one example, and another is Carrie Underwood. For the most part, though, to make it in the pop world now a woman must do more than just stand there and show off a buxom instrument. First and foremost, she should know how to move. Dance skills matter as much as big lungs in today’s very visual pop marketplace. Lopez, let’s remember, started her career as a member of the Fly Girls, the troupe that helped bring hip-hop moves to television on the comedy show “In Living Color.” For many of today’s major talents — Beyonce, for example — singing and dancing are inseparable parts of a total package. Naima Adedapo offered a glimpse of what an “Idol” rocking moves might look like. Her rivals don’t do much more than teeter around on their high heels.

C4 Sunday, May 1, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

Copies of books by author Henry Miller dangle from the ceiling of the Henry Miller Memorial Library, creating an intriguing mobile. Always controversial, Miller lived in Big Sur from 1944 to 1962, and is credited with luring other Beat Generation writers to this coast.

Colorful ice plants stand beside California State Highway 1 as it meanders along the colorful Big Sur coastline near Point Sur. Landslides are a constant danger along the famous highway, occasionally severing main access routes from the north and south.

Big Sur Continued from C1 White settlers arrived after the California Gold Rush and homesteaded the land in the late 1850s. Still, Big Sur remained isolated for a very long time. After a 20-mile wagon road was pushed south from Carmel in about 1886, a half-century passed before Highway 1 was completed. Livestock, orchards, gold mining, timber and lime production played occasional roles in the economy, but it took the arrival of a controversial author during the World War I years to provide a spark for the visitor industry. Henry Miller (1891-1980) settled in Big Sur in 1944 and lived there for 18 years. Unabashedly hedonistic, Miller had first raised American censors’ hackles with the publication of “Tropic of Cancer” in Paris in 1934. Although many of his books were banned in the United States as pornographic until the 1960s, they found their way into the hands of avid readers and Beat generation writers. His work “Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch” (1957) cemented his reputation as a California Coast writer.

Today Miller’s memory is revered on Big Sur. The Henry Miller Memorial Library, a rambling bookshop set back among the redwoods off Highway 1, offers a wide selection of his books and paintings, as well as those of others he knew in California and in France. It’s a place worth a visit for any devoted reader. Among Henry Miller’s Beat followers was Jack Kerouac, who followed Miller to Big Sur and set big parts of two of his novels — “The Dharma Bums” (1958) and “Big Sur” (1962) — on this rugged coast. Kerouac modeled many of his characters after other Beat-era authors with whom he shared his time on Big Sur, including Gary Snyder, Allen Ginsburg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Alan Watts. The “beats” weren’t the only artists to visit. Poet Robinson Jeffers often wrote of Big Sur, including his epic “The Women at Point Sur” (1927). Nobel Prizewinner John Steinbeck visited Big Sur in “East of Eden” (1952). Richard Brautigan’s first novel was “A Confederate General from Big Sur” (1962). Photographers Ansel Adams and Edward Weston extensively documented the coast in black and white from the ’30s through the ’70s.

Luxury lodging at Big Sur Big Sur boasts some of the highest-profile accommodations on the West Coast. Two of them, in particular, deserve more than a passing mention. The Ventana Inn & Spa was built in 1975. Now well into its fourth decade, the resort sprawls along a ridge line with its 60 units in 15 buildings. Guests have a choice of two swimming-andsoaking facilities, one of them “clothing optional,” and can attend morning yoga classes in the resort library or join a guide on a midday hike. There is a variety of room designs. The room I inspected was a spacious two-story unit, with king bedroom and double bath on the upper level. The ground floor featured a kitchen, a full living room and a private patio extending toward a broad lawn that attracted wild turkeys. Nightly rates begin at $450 per night and run as high as $800. A half-mile away by footpath or golf-cart shuttle is the Restaurant at Ventana, a handsome beamed lodge offering such nightly dinner selections as rib eye steak with fois-gras butter, roasted duck breast and seared scallops with butternutsquash risotto. Most entrees are priced between $30 and $40.

And there have been actors aplenty. In 1944, Orson Wells bought a rustic log cabin for his wife, Rita Hayworth; today it has been incorporated into the Nepenthe restaurant. Kim Novak and Steve McQueen lived on Big Sur with their spouses in the ’60s and ’70s. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton filmed “The Sandpiper” on this coast in 1964; Clint Eastwood directed and starred in “Play Misty for Me” in 1971. Today, Big Sur is a curious blend of back-to-nature and ultra-wealthy. A hippie element is still highly visible at places like the Big Sur Bakery and the adjacent Spirit Garden, where a resident artist may be seen crafting human-size “spirit nests,” within an outdoor gallery that features imported sculptures and works of art from around the world. In other parts of Big Sur, the galleries are considerably more upscale. The Coast Gallery displays the work of more than 250 artists, some of them from California’s central coast, more of them from all over the United States and overseas. The works are housed in a unique, indooroutdoor, six-gallery complex. The spectacular Hawthorne Gallery features the work of just 12

The unconventional and eco-sensitive Post Ranch Inn was ahead of its time when it was constructed in 1992. Working on the 100-acre site of the 1867 William B. Post Ranch, architect Mickey Muennig combined stone and slate, concrete, native woods and lots of glass in the design. Some of the 40 guest rooms are tree houses; some are sod-roofed earth shelters with broad ocean views; others are circular or butterfly-shaped. But all have king beds, wood-burning fireplaces, indoor spa tubs, even massage tables on private terraces. The adults-only resort offers a luxury spa, private yoga and meditation sessions, infinity-edged soaking pools and a meadow swimming pool. Rates are beyond the reach of many visitors, however: The least expensive range from $550 to $725 seasonally, while ocean-view rooms begin at $1,060 and run as high as $2,185 per night. Under the direction of chef Craig von Foerster, the inn’s Sierra Mar Restaurant has achieved considerable acclaim. While lunches and afternoon snacks are served at moderate prices, the fourcourse prix-fixe dinner menu ($110 per person, not including wine pairings) is the big draw for Post Ranch Inn visitors. — John Gottberg Anderson

braces 4,800 acres of the former Rancho El Sur, once the 1840 claim of an English sea captain who settled in Monterey. The gentle 1.4-mile Headlands Trail passes Capt. Cooper’s 1861 redwood cabin to reach a dramatic vista from Molera Point. It’s another 4½ miles to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, whose trails wind through more than 800 acres of redwoods, pine and oak trees surrounding Pfeiffer Creek and the Big Sur River. I enjoyed a steep, one-mile hike to pretty Pfeiffer Falls, which ribbon 60 feet down a granite wall. A second trail ascends to a scenic viewpoint and provides access

to the 164,000-acre Ventana Wilderness, already recovering from the scars of the 2008 forest fire. Continued next page

State park adventures Several properties administered by the California Department of Parks and Recreation provide Big Sur visitors with the best access to the natural environment. Coming from the north, as I did, the first is Point Sur State Historic Park, 18 miles south of Carmel. Built in 1889, Point Sur Light Station overlooks the wave-raked Pacific from the brink of a 272-foot-high volcanic bluff, connected to the mainland by a sandbar. From Highway 1, it appears as a nearly impregnable bastion. Three-hour guided tours, by reservation, take in not only the original stone lighthouse (which is now automated), but also the keeper’s houses and workshops. Andrew Molina State Park is three miles farther south. Largely undeveloped, the park em-

Midday diners enjoy a spectacular view of the Big Sur coastline from Nepenthe, a fabled restaurant perched more than 800 feet over the Pacific. Under the same family ownership since 1947, the restaurant has a bohemian appeal that draws artists and actors alike. From previous page At the heart of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park is the Big Sur Lodge, one of the long-established hostelries along this shore. Its 62 cottages and three-meals-a-day dining room have catered to park visitors since 1933, on the site of a rustic resort built by John and Florence Pfeiffer in 1908. One of Big Sur’s most awe-in-

Despite its relative isolation, Big Sur has no lack of outstanding places to dine. Both the Post Ranch Inn and Ventana Inn & Spa (see sidebar, “Luxury Lodging”) have renowned restaurants. But there are other dining spots that I like equally well. Nepenthe has been in the Fassett family since 1947. I cannot believe there is a grander vista in all of Big Sur than from its outdoor dining terrace. Named for a mythical drug known to ancient Greeks as a potion against emotional pain and sorrow, the restaurant stands more than 800 feet above the sea. A variety of gourmet lunches and dinners are served here — Nepenthe has published its own history book, complete with family recipes — but many visitors (myself among them) are delighted with a simple Ambrosia burger, served with avocado on French bread. There is no lodging at Nepenthe, but Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn offers 20 rustic cabins as well as a homespun restaurant with outstanding breakfasts and dinners. Norwegian immigrant Helmuth Deetjen opened the inn in 1937, the year Highway 1 was complet-

ed; it is his legacy that the property, now a foundation-operated National Historic Site, continues to serve guests today. The restaurant prepares from-scratch dinners that feature the likes of shiitake-mushroom soup, fresh beet salad and roasted lamb chops. It also has an extensive wine list. Specialty pancakes highlight the breakfast menu.

thousands of years of constant erosion. Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is 11 miles south of Pfeiffer Big Sur. The best-known feature of the rugged 1,800-acre park is McWay Falls, which plunges 80 feet to another ocean beach. The short trail follows a creek beneath the highway and out along the bluffs. Since the early 1960s, the nearby Esalen Institute has been a leader in the “human potential” movement. Seminars and workshops on a variety of subjects, from psychology and Eastern religion to yoga and massage, are regularly offered. But Esalen may now be best-known for its cliff-top hot springs, especially popular (by reservation) for soaks in the hours of the very early morning. Under ordinary circumstances, the road proceeds on its meandering course for another 35 miles before leaving Big Sur’s cliffs and entering a region of rolling hills. Near the village of San Simeon is Hearst Castle, the spectacular estate of media mogul William Randolph Hearst (1883-1951). With the highway blocked by a landslide, however, this journey is not practical as a day trip for visitors to the Big Sur coast.

Adam Chiappelone, left, director of college and singles ministries at NorthCreek Church, speaks to Steven Copper and Christine Lee during a singles meeting in Concord, Calif., on April 8.

Singles put church bells before wedding bells By Laura Casey Contra Costa Times

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — It’s Friday night and about 45 singles in their 20s and 30s are piled into a NorthCreek Church pastor’s Concord, Calif., home. The mood is light and friendly, the volume even a bit loud as friends welcome and catch up with one another. The Kaleo (“the called”) singles and career group at NorthCreek Church is a model that many religious singles gatherings follow. It brings singles together for shared experiences and for Bible study that often speaks about their lifestyle challenges. Although everyone is single, NorthCreek’s event is not a “meat market” for Christians. The evening is a social one, sure, but first it is a chance to learn about the word of God with people at similar places in their lives.

Sense of belonging Some singles meetings are for kinship and some prepare singles for eventual family life, should that be the path they choose to follow. While not all places of worship have singles events, the ones that do offer more than just a place to meet a potential date. “Often, singles think they don’t belong in a church,” says Nancy Ginn, director for the active singles ministry at South Valley Community Church in Gilroy, Calif. “Our singles groups become family, oftentimes spending holidays and special events together. They encourage and support one another.” A religious person who is not in a relationship, whether never married or divorced or widowed,

has different needs from married religious couples, says Pastor Mark Turner of South Valley. “I think, in general, singles deal with loneliness, a sense of not fitting in. They have that third-wheel feeling and typically won’t attend events that are designed for families,” he says. “That’s not to mention the other temptations that go along with being single, whether they are Christian or not.” Ginn, who oversees social barbecues, parties and singles conferences, is a widow who has also gone through a divorce. She says she doesn’t feel like she fits in to “family-friendly” religious events at South Valley. “Being with other singles, there’s a sense of belonging,” she says. Minister Shamar Lewis of Providence Baptist Church in Richmond, Calif., just launched a singles ministry this year. He says he saw a need in his congregation to get his singles together so they could meet like-minded people outside of a bar or a club. While a religious mother might push her son to church to meet a potential mate, religious organizations say their mission is not to hook people up for dating. It’s to serve the religion and perhaps introduce singles to other followers who can become mentors and friends. “I think church is absolutely the best place to meet other singles,” says Jim Meek, senior pastor at Trinity Baptist Church in Livermore, Calif. “The problem is, if you’re just going to meet people, it can be a frustrating experience. You’re supposed to come to learn to forget about self. When we go to church to get something

out of it, it’s really opposite of the purpose of church. The purpose of church is it’s an area for learning and service. You go for God and for other people.” He adds, “If you’re coming with this desperate feeling of ‘I gotta find a mate,’ that never works. When you’re able to have a good single life and be happy with the Lord and your hobbies, then you become good material for marriage.”

Continued from C1 “Night at the Opera” was first presented at the Great Hall in 2008 and features soprano Courtney Huffman and mezzosoprano Sarah Mattox, both of whom grew up in Central Oregon. That concert features Verdi’s Triumphal March from “Aida”; Mozart’s Overture to “The Magic Flute” K. 620; and Smetana’s “Dance of the Comedians” from “The Bartered Bride.” Mattox and Huffman will sing selections from “Carmen,” “Barber of Seville” and other operas. “They were both part of our Young Artist Scholarship program for years,” Beezley says. And now, “they both have really great careers.” When the two performed the light-opera program in 2008, “It was a sellout crowd. It was so popular,” says Beezley, and not just because Huffman and Mattox are locals made good: “It’s not heavy opera stuff. It’s all very familiar.” On Aug. 15, Haochen Zhang (pronounced “How-chen

Jhang”), a 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition gold medalist, will perform a piano recital in the Great Hall. Beezley says she has not yet received word what he plans to play. Concerts III and IV will be held at the Great Hall. Concert III on Aug. 16 features Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D, BWV 1050, Schumann’s Sinfonietta (Overture, Scherzo, Andante, Finale), Op. 52 and Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C Major. Concert IV, on Aug. 17, is “All Mozart Night!” The program opens with Ein Musikalischerer Spass (A Musical Joke) K. 522. Zhang will again perform, on Piano Concerto No. 23 in A; Mozart’s Symphony No. 38 in D Major (Prague) K. 504 will conclude the concert. The festival usually features seven concerts in all, three in Bend and four in Sunriver, but Beezley says, the family concert was not possible to put on this year. “We just love that concert, but the shifting around of securing the Great Hall this year, it just didn’t give us a ven-

ue (within) our time frame,” she says. Tickets range from $10 for youth tickets to $60 box seats, and are available now for Sunriver Music Festival members, and go on sale to the public June 1. However, Beezley urges everyone interested in tickets to go ahead and call about tickets or send in their ticket order forms, available online at www.sunriver music.org. “What we generally do is find out what section they’re interested in, and kind of prioritize by members first,” says Beezley. “We’re excited (for the) 34th season. We’re doing well. It’s kind of encouraging this year: We have new sponsors coming in, some returning advertisers that had dropped off for a few years, just due to their own business situations. That is so encouraging.” For more information, visit www.sunrivermusic.org, e-mail tickets@sunrivermusic.org or call 541-593-9310.

SUDOKU SOLUTION

A special someone? While dating should not be the focus, religious leaders say, that doesn’t mean singles attending events never meet, court and marry. The Kaleo group at NorthCreek witnessed the marriage of six couples last year who met during its social events and, although that was a bumper crop year, it’s not uncommon for people to trust and develop relationships with people they see every week at Bible study. “Our primary reason for holding these events is we want to provide a caring community for people,” says Adam Chiappelone, director of college and singles ministries at NorthCreek. “Sometimes, as people grow together and do things together, (bonded relationships) naturally happen.” Holding a Bible, Mary Lee, a 24-year-old Walnut Creek, Calif., teacher, says her nonreligious peers sometimes give her a strange look when she tells them she goes to her pastor’s home every Friday night for Bible study. “But this is what I love,” she says. “I love the Lord. My main purpose in coming here is not ‘Oh, I want to meet a man.’ I just love the Lord, and I want to be here.”

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS St-Pierre retains welterweight title at UFC 129 TORONTO — Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre used his striking superiority to win his ninth straight fight, unanimously outpointing Jake Shields in UFC 129 on Saturday night. St-Pierre, the 29-year-old mixed martial artist star from Montreal, improved to 22-2, receiving winning scores of 50-45, 48-47, 48-47 from the judges. He sustained an eye injury in the second round. “I can’t see with my left eye right now. I can see a blur,” he said. Shields, a 32-year-old California fighter, dropped to 26-5-1. He entered the fight with a 15-bout winning streak dating to 2005. Both men were bloodied in the fourth and fifth rounds. “His striking was much better than I thought,” St-Pierre said. “He closed my eyes.” In the co-main event before 55,000 fans — a record for a North American mixed martial arts card — at the Rogers Centre, featherweight champion Jose Aldo (19-1) unanimously outpointed Mark Hominick (20-9).

Riding waves at Bachelor? The Big Wave Challenge is a different type of snowboarding event By Amanda Miles The Bulletin

MOUNT BACHELOR — As unlikely as it may sound, the surf was up at Mt. Bachelor ski area this weekend. On Saturday, snowboarders participated in the resort’s Big Wave Challenge, which brought the feel of surfing to the slopes of the mountain. “It’s just more because of Mt. Bachelor’s known surfy-type features,” Andy Goggins said of the inspiration for the first-time event. “It’s a volcano,

and so there’s a lot of areas where wave shapes actually form naturally.” The wavy course did not form naturally though. Goggins, Mt. Bachelor’s director of marketing and communications, said it took about three days for the resort’s park crew to create the course — which he claimed is one of a kind. The crew used Sno-Cats to push and shape the snow, and a pipe cutter to mold the sides of the jumps. See Waves / D4

American League roundup

National League roundup

• Mariners 2, Red Sox 0: BOSTON — Doug Fister worked out of trouble three times in 5 2⁄3 scoreless innings and Seattle’s bullpen continued its solid stretch, lifting the Mariners to a win over Boston. It was the Mariners’ fifth straight win. Seattle’s Milton Bradley had an RBI double before being ejected a few minutes later and the Mariners’ bullpen pitched the final 3 1⁄3 innings. Seattle’s pen has held opponents scoreless for the last 13 1⁄3 innings. • Rays 2, Angels 1: ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Matt Joyce scored from third on a wild pitch with two outs in the 10th inning and Tampa Bay beat the Los Angeles Angels. Joyce opened the 10th with a double off Fernando Rodney (0-1). After Ben Zobrist lined out and Casey Kotchman moved Joyce to third with a grounder, Rodney threw a 1-2 pitch into the dirt that eluded catcher Hank Conger. • Rangers 11, Athletics 2: OAKLAND, Calif. — Colby Lewis pitched eight strong innings, Texas hit three home runs, including back-to-back shots by Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli in the fourth, and the Rangers beat the Athletics. Michael Young hit his first homer of the season as the Rangers tagged A’s starter Brett Anderson (2-2) for seven runs in five innings while snapping a two-game losing streak. • Yankees 5, Blue Jays 4: NEW YORK — Eric Chavez drove in a run and broke up a potential double play that helped lead to three more, making the most of a spot start and sending the Yankees to a victory over the Blue Jays. Derek Jeter hit a sacrifice fly, and Curtis Granderson, Russell Martin and Brett Gardner also drove in runs for the Yankees, who played small ball to perfection against Toronto. • Orioles 6, White Sox 2: CHICAGO — Robert Andino homered and reliever Mike Gonzalez doused a no-out bases-loaded situation as Baltimore sent the reeling Chicago White Sox to their 14th loss in 17 games. Leading 2-1, the Orioles tacked on four runs in the eighth, an inning featuring a passed ball and error on Chicago catcher A.J. Pierzynski and a two-run single by Vladimir Guerrero. • Royals 11, Twins 2: KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Gordon hit a three-run homer in an eight-run eighth inning and rookie right-hander Nate Adcock picked up his first big league victory as Kansas City beat Minnesota. The Royals sent 12 men to the plate in the eighth and scored all eight runs after two outs. Six of the runs were unearned after an error by Twins first baseman Justin Morneau. • Indians 3, Tigers 2: CLEVELAND — Orlando Cabrera lined an RBI single in the 13th inning that gave Cleveland its 12th straight home win. A day after Carlos Santana hit a game-winning grand slam in the ninth, the Indians went extra innings to extend their best home streak since a 13-game stretch in 1996.

• Phillies 2, Mets 1: PHILADELPHIA — Roy Halladay pitched a seven-hitter to help Philadelphia set a club record with its 18th victory in April as the Phillies beat the New York Mets. Halladay (4-1) allowed one run and walked one while striking out eight to lead the Phillies to their third straight victory. Philadelphia went 17-5 in April 1993. • Cardinals 3, Braves 2: ATLANTA — Gerald Laird’s ninth-inning triple capped a late rally to give the Cardinals a win over the Braves. Backed by rookie Brandon Beachy’s seven scoreless innings to start the game, the Braves led 2-0 before St. Louis began its comeback. David Freese tied the game with a two-run single in the eighth before Laird’s go-ahead triple drove in Matt Holliday. • Giants 2, Nationals 1: WASHINGTON — Taken out of the starting lineup, slumping Aubrey Huff drew a bases-loaded walk as a pinch hitter to force home the go-ahead run, and the Giants overcame Jonathan Sanchez’s wild start and Brian Wilson’s wild finish to edge the punchless Nationals. Sanchez walked or hit seven of Washington’s first 10 batters but allowed just two hits and one unearned run in his five innings. Guillermo Mota (2-0) pitched a perfect sixth for the win, and four other relievers followed with hitless work. • Astros 2, Brewers 1: HOUSTON — Jason Bourgeois singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning and Houston beat Milwaukee. Kameron Loe (2-2) walked pinch-hitter Brett Wallace and Michael Bourn with two outs.

PREP ROUNDUP

Culver wins two on road in softball

Continued from D1 Goggins pointed out that the crew had plenty of material with which to work, as a record-breaking amount of snow has fallen at Mt. Bachelor this season — 621 inches on Thursday afternoon and still counting. On Saturday, a field of about 100 riders tested their skills under partly sunny skies on the course’s curved, banked turns, which culminated in a “spine” — a flat ridge — and a sweeping bowl at the bottom. Meanwhile, skiers and snowboarders riding the Pine Marten chairlift overhead were treated to a bird’s-eye view of the tricks, thrills and spills. “It’s sweet,” Tim Fraley, of Bend, said of the course after his first run. “It’s got some big features ... It’s got frontside, backside, a lot of variety. A lot of good creativity options are possible. And then the whole bottom there, they call it the ‘toilet bowl.’ It’s definitely got the wavy feel.” The course gave David Dodge the chance to do exactly what he likes to when snowboarding. The 42-year-old learned how to surf in California during his teenage years. “When I snowboard, normally I look for things like this, and it makes me feel like I’m surfing,” said Dodge, who went surfing on the Oregon coast this past weekend. “So I do look for features like this and pretend I’m surfing, really.”

Bulletin staff report HALSEY — Culver softball had no problems at the plate Saturday, sweeping Central Linn on the road 7-5 and 9-8. The Bulldogs amassed 31 hits in the doubleheader, 13 in the first game, which was a Class 2A/1A Special District 3 contest. Culver (6-4 league, 14-5 overall) led 7-2 until the Cobras mounted a late-game surge. Kymber Wofford posted a double for the Bulldogs and finished four for four in the opener. In the second game, which was a nonleague matchup, Culver again took control early, holding a 5-1 lead after three innings. Central Linn went on a scoring spree in the sixth inning, though, recording six runs in the bottom half of the inning to tie the game 8-8. After a scoreless seventh inning, the Bulldogs scored the goahead run in the top of the eighth before shutting down Central Linn for the victory. Wofford and Sam Donnelly both tallied one double apiece for Culver in the late game. The Bulldogs are at Grant Union on Tuesday for a nonleague doubleheader.

Ryan Fritz recorded the Bulldogs’ only hit in the second game. Culver (3-6 Special District 3, 6-14 overall) is on the road at Scio on Thursday. BOYS TENNIS Storm places sixth in Medford tourney MEDFORD — Beau and Liam Hall placed second in the No. 2 doubles bracket and William Dalquist and Wes Franco finished second in the No. 4 doubles competition to lead Summit to a sixth-place finish at the Medford/Ashland Tournament at North Medford High School.

The Storm’s No. 1 doubles team of Sterling Dillingham and Scott Parr did not place but advanced to the semifinal round and finished the tournament with a 2-1 record. Summit is at Mountain View on Monday.

Gilchrist Continued from D1 Brittaney Searcy (100), Ashley Agenbroad (discus), Chloee Sazama (pole vault) and the Hawks’ 400-meter relay team all posted wins for La Pine. Lori Sandy paced Culver with a third-place finish in the triple jump. Crane scored 122.5 points Saturday to win the 12-team boys meet.

and Deion Mock (pole vault) all recorded victories for the Hawks, while Levi Penter (1,500), Josh Hayes (shot put), Gary Woodward (discus) and Desrosiers in the long jump earned runner-up finishes. Mock’s winning vault of 14 feet set a new personal best for the La Pine junior and is the fourth-best pole vault in Class 4A this season through Saturday. The Hawks also won the boys 400-meter relay and placed second in the 1,600 relay. For the Bulldogs of Culver, Preston Quinn won the boys 1,500 and Kyle Belanger (400) and Tyler Funk (300 hurdles) each ended the day with a second-place finish.

Nitschelm, who has committed to play at PSU next season, added a double and two RBIs, as did Cassidy Edwards. Justine Callen earned the win for Redmond in the circle. In the second game the Panthers again scored late to take

control of the league contest. Leading 2-1 after four innings, Redmond scored twice in the fifth and five times in the sixth to destroy any hopes of a Cardinal comeback. Nitschelm, Edwards and Cheyenne Friend all recorded two RBIs in the late

game to pace the Panthers at the plate. Edwards picked up the victory, allowing one run and six hits over five innings before Ashley Pesek came in to throw the final two innings. Redmond finishes its Special District 1 schedule next week

with three games against Portland’s Grant High. The Panthers host the Generals for one game on Tuesday before traveling back up to Portland next Saturday for a doubleheader against Grant in the Rose City’s Delta Park.

Regis, to fly out to center. The complete-game effort was the first of his career, and he improved to 6-1 this season. The Beavers managed just four hits of their own against Bauer, who went the full nine innings but dropped to 8-2 on the year. He struck out 15 and walked two, and was touched for just two runs in the sixth inning. That’s all Osich needed. Ryan Barnes drew a one-out walk in the sixth, then moved to third when Jared Norris singled to right with two outs. That brought up Kavin Keyes, who fouled off a couple 0-2

pitches before hitting a shot to the right-center gap that scored Barnes and Norris and gave Osich the lead. The no-hitter is the Beavers’ first since Mike Stutes, Josh Keller, Mark Grbavac and Jorge Reyes combined to no-hit Hawaii-Hilo in 2007. Cleve Benson, Eric Selberg and Jack Humphrey combined to no-hit Portland in 1967. The win put the Beavers at 328 on the year and 12-2 in Pac-10 play. UCLA fell to 22-16 overall and 10-7 in the Pac-10. Oregon State and UCLA finish up their three-game series today starting at 1 p.m.

“When I snowboard, normally I look for things like this, and it makes me feel like I’m surfing. So I do look for features like this and pretend I’m surfing, really.” —David Dodge, about competing in the Big Wave Challenge at Mount Bachelor Saturday

Riders were judged as they would be in a surfing competition, rather than a big air or rail jam snowboarding contest. The four Big Wave Challenge judges, assisted by surfing icon and surfboard maker Gerry Lopez, a Bend resident, gave riders marks on a 10-point scale based on speed, power and control. “It’s just style and flow and expression really, people just doing their own deal,” Fraley, 39, explained. A number of riders still performed plenty of tricks, including 360-degree turns, flips and hand-grabs. Placements were determined by the best combined score after two runs for each rider. Allister Schultz, of Eugene, and Marissa Krawczak, of Hood River, were the winners of the men’s and women’s divisions, respectively. For their efforts, Schultz and Krawczak earned custom surfboards from Gerry Lopez. As for the other competitors, they got a taste of surfing — in the snow and hundreds of miles away from the ocean. “If you could have a wave that was always like this, that would be awesome,” Dodge said. “In a sense, it’s better because it’s always this perfect slope, but in the other sense, it’s not better because it doesn’t move, and that’s what makes surfing so fun, too.” Amanda Miles can be reached at 541-383-0393 or at amiles@bendbulletin.com.

GOLF ROUNDUP

Kyle Busch stretches gas for victory at Richmond

Ducks even series with No. 20 Cal

By Jenna Fryer The Associated Press

From wire reports BERKELEY, Calif. — Behind another solid start from Madison Boer and Andrew Mendenhall’s first career home run, Oregon upended No. 20 California 4-3 on Saturday afternoon at Evans Diamond. The Ducks (22-19, 5-9) and Bears (25-14, 10-7) will now play the rubber match of this series today, with the first pitch at noon. Mendenhall, making just his 10th start of the season, surpassed Friday’s offensive production with one swing of the bat, taking a 3-1 offering from California starter Justin Jones and launching a two-out, tworun homer over the wall in left to give the Ducks a 2-0 lead in the top of the second. KC Serna’s two-out single kept the inning alive for Mendenhall’s round tripper. In the top of the third, Oregon doubled its lead, scoring two runs on two hits and a Cal error. Danny Pulfer led off the inning with a single to right, and Jack Marder drove a ball to right. Danny Oh was still moving back on Marder’s hit but was charged with the error after the ball fell out of his glove. Stefan Sabol’s sacrifice moved both runners into scoring position before Shawn Peterson drove a two-run, one-out double to right center as Pulfer and Marder scored. Oregon’s four runs on nine hits stood up for the remaining six innings with Boer, Christian Jones and Kellen Moen all appearing on the mound. Pulfer, Sabol and Peterson each led the Ducks with two hits apiece. Boer (3-3) went 7 1⁄3 innings on the hill, and allowed three runs — just two earned — on seven hits and two walks while fanning three. He was backed up by his defense, which turned a season-high-tying three double plays to end the first, second and third innings. In the bottom of the eighth, nursing a 4-3 lead, Boer gave up a one-out single to Tony Renda and his day ended. In relief of the right-hander, the Ducks brought Christian Jones to the mound, but Oh was able to knock a fullcount single to left as the Bears had runners on first and second with one out. Kellen Moen came out and retired Chadd Krist before Devon Rodriguez lined out to right to preserve Oregon’s one-run lead. Moen then mowed down the Cal side in order in the top of the ninth to clinch Oregon’s victory and his seventh save of the year. Justin Jones (5-4) gave up four runs — three earned — on nine hits and one walk. In seven innings, the southpaw recorded four strikeouts. After allowing four runs in the first three innings, Justin Jones settled down and shut out the Ducks for the next four innings, facing just two batters over the minimum before surrendering back-to-back singles in the top of the eighth. Matt Flemer then came on in relief and retired six consecutive Oregon batters to keep Cal within one run. Cal totaled eight hits on the day, as Renda and Oh each went three for four.

Webb Simpson chips his ball to the seventh green during the third round of the Zurich Classic golf tournament in Louisiana, Saturday. Simpson chipped in for a birdie to go 11-under par.

Watson, Simpson share Zurich lead The Associated Press AVONDALE, La. — Bubba Watson made a 4-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole for a 2-under 70 and a share of thirdround lead with Webb Simpson on Saturday in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Simpson had five straight birdies in a 67 to match Watson, who has had at least a share of the lead after all three rounds, at 12-under 204 at TPC Louisiana. Watson needed to birdie the 588-yard 18th to get into the final group today. After hitting his 250-yard approach into a greenside bunker, he blasted out to 4 feet to set up his birdie putt. “Knowing that if I stroke this well, I’m tied for the lead and not one back, knowing I’m in the final group,” said Watson, the Torrey Pines winner in January for his second tour title. “There was a lot of pressure on that for me. Somehow it went in dead center, and so I’m in the final group.” John Rollins (69) was third at 11 under, and 2002 winner K.J. Choi (67) was 10 under along with Steve Stricker (68), George McNeill (65), Charles Howell III (66), Tommy Gainey (68) and Matt Jones (69). Former LSU star David Toms, the 2001 Zurich winner, topped a group at 8 under after a 67.

Teen surges to share of LPGA Tour lead MOBILE, Ala. — Sixteenyear-old Alexis Thompson moved into position to become the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history, shooting a 5-under 67 in breezy conditions Saturday for a share of the third-round lead with Song-Hee Kim in the Avnet LPGA Classic. Kim had a 70 to match Thompson at 7-under 209 on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex. “I’m going into (today) just going all-in on every golf shot,” Thompson said. “Play consistent like I have the last few days and hopefully it’ll all go well.” Thompson will be 16 years, 2 months, 21 days Sunday. Marlene Hagge was 18 years, 14 days when she won the 1952 Sarasota Open, which was an 18-hole event. Hagge won two 18-hole events at 18.

Predators even series with Canucks The Associated Press VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Ryan Suter tied the game with 67 seconds left and Matt Halischuk won it 14:51 into double overtime as the Nashville Predators beat the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 on Saturday night and tied the Western Conference semifinal series 1-1. After Pekka Rinne made several acrobatic game-saving stops in extra time, Halischuk took a cross-ice pass from Nick Spaling and fired a quick shot over a diving defender and past the glove of goalie Roberto Luongo. Alex Burrows scored a shorthanded goal two minutes into the second period and it appeared Luongo would make it stand up for his second straight shutout in the series. But Suter tied it on Nashville’s 36th shot, a harmless looking centering pass from below the goal line that went between Luongo’s legs and

bounced in off his left skate. Luongo finished with 44 saves. Game 3 is Tuesday at Nashville. Rinne made the best of his 32 saves in overtime, including robbing Henrik Sedin alone atop the crease on a rebound, and a headfirst diving paddle stop to take an empty net from Kevin Bieksa with 2:14 left in the first overtime period. He stretched out to turn away Maxim Lapierre with his glove a minute later, as the Predators avoided losing consecutive games for the first time since early March. It was the longest game in Predators history, and the third longest for the top-seeded Canucks, who won the series opener 1-0 on Thursday but have now given up home-ice advantage to Nashville. The Predators will host the next two games before the series returns to Vancouver for Game 5. Unlike the opener, in which the

Canucks outplayed the Predators and Luongo’s toughest task was staying awake, Nashville carried the play in Game 2. The Predators outshot Vancouver 36-15 in regulation, forcing Luongo to make several good saves, including a stacked-pads stop on Jordin Tootoo’s breakaway with 8:46 left.

The Bruins chased goalie Brian Boucher by taking a 5-1 lead in the second period. New round, same problem for the Flyers. Philadelphia used two goalies in three of its seven first-round games against Buffalo.

RICHMOND, Va. — Kyle Busch denied teammate Denny Hamlin a weekend sweep at his home track Saturday night by stretching his final tank of gas 107 laps to win at Richmond International Raceway. Busch won the spring race at Richmond for the third consecutive year, needing only to make it to the checkered flag before his gas tank ran dry. Lurking behind him was Hamlin, ready to pounce for a victory that might have snapped his early season slump. Hamlin had already won his charity race, held Thursday night at RIR, and followed it with Friday night’s win in the Nationwide Series race. But Busch’s car was just a tick better in the Sprint Cup Series race, and Busch led the Joe Gibbs Racing sweep. “It was important for me to have a smooth race and not have anything go wrong,” Hamlin said. “Just got beat by my teammate. He drove a great race. I thought he would burn his stuff up. Our cars were dead equal. “It’s tough when you share notebooks,” Hamlin said. “Every trick in the book, you know they’ve got it, too.” Busch, though, credited Hamlin for the victory. The two have dominated at the track, combining to win the last five races here. The last non-Gibbs driver to win at Richmond was Jimmie Johnson in September, 2008. “I learned from Denny last fall, and I’m not going to say what I learned,” Busch said. “He might know, but we did a good job at doing what we needed to do.” Kasey Kahne, fresh off surgery to repair a torn ligament in his knee, finished a seasonbest third to give Toyota the top three spots. “We weren’t quite good enough as the Gibbs cars, they were really good tonight,” Kahne said. “But it’s still a good run. The guys did a good job and it’s nice to get a top-five.” The leaders seemed to have an easy go of it, with most of the fireworks coming far behind them in the field.

Kyle Busch celebrates winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Va., Saturday. Ryan Newman and Juan Pablo Montoya were involved in two different on-track incidents. The first caused Montoya, the polesitter, to brush the wall. His stop to repair the damage dropped him three laps off the pace. He later ran into the back of Newman when Newman was running eighth, and Newman vowed his payback would come after the race. There was no confrontation, though. Montoya hopped on a waiting golf cart and headed out of the track, while Newman walked to the NASCAR hauler to complain about Montoya’s driving. What kind of action did he want from NASCAR? “Just fair, I guess. I don’t know that you can have that,” he said. “To retaliate the way he did just didn’t show much class.” There’s been some history between the two, including contact that led to a fiery crash for Montoya in his 2006 Cup debut at Homestead. Newman got a dig in when asked if he thought Montoya’s still mad about that accident. “Yeah, I don’t know if he could even remember back that far,” he said.

Bob Schumacher 541.280.9147 www.schumacherconstructioninc.com

Meanwhile, Kurt Busch completely lost his composure on his team radio several times during the race. Frustrated by an ill-handling car, he was pushed over the edge when he ran into Newman seconds after contact between Newman and Montoya brought out the caution. And Martin Truex Jr., in position for a top-five finish, threatened over his team radio to fire his entire crew when he was penalized twice on his final pit stop. All that action made the actual finish fairly uneventful, and both Hamlin and Kahne shared a knowing smirk during the post-race news conference about all the in-race excitement. “I watch the screen ... every time Montoya has damage, you see who did it, they usually end up getting wrecked,” Hamlin said. “You usually know that’s coming.”

NFL draft concludes as labor dispute rolls on By Richard Rosenblatt

Oregon’s LaMichael James sprints for a 67-yard touchdown in the first half during a spring NCAA college football game at Autzen Stadium on Saturday in Eugene.

Oregon spring game draws record crowd By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

EUGENE — Just a few months removed from the BCS championship game, the Oregon Ducks played their spring game Saturday before a Pac-10 record crowd of more than 43,000. Heisman finalist LaMichael James showed he hadn’t lost a step by running for a 67-yard touchdown for Oregon’s green team early in the day. Rob Beard added three field goals for a 16-0 victory over the white team. According to Oregon’s count, a Pac-10 and school spring record 43,468 fans showed up for the game, which appeared to catch both the university and Eugene officials off guard. Traffic was snarled in the city and some parking gates at Autzen Stadium were shut, adding to the backup. For comparison, last year’s spring game drew 25,211, the previous school record. The attendance demonstrated the leap the program took last season, when Oregon went 120 before losing to Auburn in the national championship game

in January. The Ducks were ranked No. 3 behind the Tigers and TCU in the final Associated Press poll. Last season in the spring game, quarterback Darron Thomas was battling for the starting job with fifth-year senior Nate Costa. He didn’t win the job until the final scrimmage of fall camp. Thomas would go on to throw for 2,881 yards and 30 touchdowns, and run for five more scores. On Saturday, Thomas threw for 129 yards and was intercepted once. Coach Chip Kelly said this season Thomas needs to take on a greater leadership role. “He’s growing into it,” Kelly said. Thomas said he’s doing his best to help his inexperienced teammates get ready for the Ducks’ blisteringly fast spread-option. “Our practice tempo and our game tempo are two different things,” Thomas laughed. “They’re going to have to get into a game to see what it’s like.” James, who set a new singleseason record for the Ducks with

1,731 yards last season, ran for 78 yards on three carries. He and Thomas played for much of the first half on Saturday before sitting the second. “Went well today,” James said. “I think we did a lot of good things on both sides of the ball.” The Ducks got a look at promising recruit Colt Lyerla from Hillsboro High School west of Portland. Lyerla, a tight end who enrolled at Oregon early, caught nine passes for 37 yards. Kelly said he was impressed by the 18-year-old, but noted that “just four weeks ago, he was in high school.” “Sometimes when you go from high school to college it’s like learning a new language,” Kelly said. Oregon returns seven starters on offense and six on defense. Among the key players who have moved on are linebackers Casey Matthews and Spencer Paysinger, receiver Jeff Maehl and center Jordan Holmes. Oregon opens the season in Arlington, Texas, against LSU on Sept. 3.

Stingy defense dominates injured offense in OSU spring scrimmage

NEW YORK — One fourthround draft pick won’t be ready to run until August. Another wasn’t ready to talk to his new team because he was in the middle of his graduation ceremony. Those were the least of the complications Saturday at the NFL draft, which completed its three-day run at Radio City Music Hall against a backdrop of a restored lockout. Right now, no one is sure when clubs will be ready to let any players walk back in to team headquarters. “With the lockout, there’s so much uncertainty,” said tight end Kyle Rudolph, a second-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings. “I’m just focused on getting myself in the best shape as possible and being ready whenever we are allowed to” show up. A total of 254 players were selected over seven rounds. But only a few lucky first-rounders were able to pick up playbooks Friday during a brief time when the lockout was lifted. The Carolina Panthers opened the fourth round by selecting West Virginia cornerback Brandon Hogan. The 5-foot-10, 192pounder not only has off-field issues, but he’s recovering from ligament surgery on his left knee. Hogan won’t be able to begin running full speed until August. “My knee is ahead of schedule,” he insisted. “It’s getting stronger and getting used to doing things.” The Panthers, who chose quarterback Cam Newton with the No. 1 overall pick to open the draft Thursday night and added a pair of defensive tackles Friday, are hoping Hogan recovers and stays out of trouble to bolster a secondary in need of depth. The Seattle Seahawks went next and picked Mississippi State linebacker K.J. Wright. General manager John Schneider gave Wright a call in Starkville and was puzzled why the player had so little to say. Well, it turns out Wright was just about to receive

his diploma at his graduation ceremony. “As soon as I got off the phone, two minutes later I had to go up there and walk across the stage,” Wright said. Day 3 of the draft was the first full day that players were locked out again after a brief respite Friday. That night, however, an appeals court decision allowed the league to reinstate the lockout that had been lifted earlier in the week. But the draft carried on because it is protected under the old collective bargaining agreement, which expired March 11. Dan Lauria, who stars as Green Bay coach Vince Lombardi in the Broadway show “Lombardi,” ended the sixth round by making the Packers’ pick — Arizona linebacker Ricky Elmore. The draft concluded with the Houston Texans picking Rice linebacker Cheta Ozougwu. As the final pick, he will be honored

as “Mr. Irrelevant,” a weeklong celebration in Newport Beach, Calif., that began in 1976. The Arizona Cardinals, trying to improve their pass rush, selected Texas linebacker Sam Acho in the fourth round. The 6-1, 257-pounder in December won the Campbell Trophy and a $25,000 scholarship given by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame as the nation’s top scholar athlete. Acho’s parents emigrated from Nigeria, and each summer he returns to the country with his father and brother on a medical mission. Another Matthews joined the NFL when Oregon linebacker Casey Matthews was picked by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 19th pick in the fourth round. He’s the brother of Packers AllPro linebacker Clay Matthews. The Eagles are well aware of Clay Matthews — they had a hard time handling him last year. “Clay had some success against them,” Casey Matthews said. “At the conclusion of my visit when I was out there, Coach (Andy) Reid said, ‘Tell your brother we’re going to get him next year with you on the team.’ And I told Clay that. I don’t think they have the Packers on the schedule, but hopefully we get them in the playoffs.” Minutes later, the Eagles made Nebraska All-American Alex Henery the first kicker taken with the 23rd pick of the fourth round. Henery hit 18 of 19 field goal attempts (10 of 11 from 40 yards or longer) and all 54 extra points last season. He also punts. Eagles longtime kicker David Akers is a free agent, but the team has placed a transition tag on him and would have a chance to retain him. The Cleveland Browns, with a pick from Atlanta, chose Stanford fullback Owen Marecic, a two-way player who also played linebacker. He won the inaugural Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s most versatile player.

From wire reports CORVALLIS — On cue, the sun sliced through overcast skies and redshirt freshman tailback Malcolm Marable took the ball 65 yards down the sideline for a touchdown on the final play of the 2011 Oregon State Spring Game. It encapsulated most of what the offense could muster against a very stingy defensive group. “I thought the way it worked out was awesome — a lot of good situational plays,” head coach Mike Riley said of the final scrimmage of the spring. The 5,519 Beaver fans in attendance watched the OSU offense sans several injured starters — QB Ryan Katz, WR James Rodgers, WR Jordan Bishop, TE Colby Prince and H-back Joe Halahuni — try to make the most of the day. The scrimmage was run in more of a practice style than a game with the team running situational plays rather than playing a traditional game of 1st and 10 with four downs to gain another first. In place of injured tight ends redshirt freshmen Connor Hamlett and Tyler Perry took charge of the receiving game. Hamlett finished the day with 11 receptions for 153 yards. The 6-foot 7-inch, 258-pound Hamlett and Perry handled all tight end and H-back duties for the day. “He’s a nice, big target — easy to throw to,” quarterback Cody Vaz said. “He’s really coming along well; he’ll be a good asset for us.” Riley emphasized the need for Hamlett and Perry (four for 79 yards) to continue doing what they have all spring. They have made their presence known and have added depth to a critical part of the Beaver offense. “If we get this going with our tight ends again, and we get our receivers back, we’re going to have a really good receiving

Sophomore tailback Jovan Stevenson was second with seven receptions for 41 yards. Junior wide receiver Markus Wheaton was covered well and finished with two catches for 52 yards. Vaz, who led the first-team offense, had another strong day. He completed 19 of 32 passes for 234 yards. Minus one interception, made by senior safety Lance Mitchell, and some forced throws in the red zone, Vaz showed why he’ll make a solid backup to junior Ryan Katz come fall camp. “I thought Cody Vaz looked sharp, especially early,” Riley said. “He made a lot of good plays, and so did (Sean) Mannion.” Taking most of the second team snaps was redshirt freshman Sean Mannion. He completed 13 of 32 passes for 153 yards. His day was partly tarnished by

three interceptions. Freshman linebacker D.J. Welch was the first to intercept Mannion, on a tipped ball, and he took the ball back 40 yards for a touchdown. Junior linebacker Feti Unga and redshirt freshman safety Ryan Murphy each followed with an interception apiece. The defense dominated more as the day progressed. Towards the end of the scrimmage, sophomore linebacker Michael Doctor tagged Vaz for a would-be sack, and then junior defensive end Taylor Henry followed suit just a play later. The offensive line had been sturdy through most of the prior plays. Doctor led the defense with 10 total tackles, and senior defensive tackle Dominic Glover, who has moved from defensive end this spring, had three tackles-forloss, including a pair of sacks.

JOHN COSTA

U.S. military

Don’t miss this chance to build up OSU in Bend

T

here is an opportunity so unique for higher education that it would be pound foolish for the state to turn its back. There are questions about it, and good ones, raised by sincere people reflecting real concerns. But the questions are answerable about this once-in-a-lifetime chance. The chance at hand is for the Legislature and governor to find a little less than $2 million to secure a new center for graduate studies for the Bend branch of Oregon State University. That money would be matched by funds from OSU and from an anonymous donor. The one in mind is the Edge Wireless building on Columbia Street. Overlooking the Deschutes River and the Old Mill District, and visible from some of the most traveled roads in the city, the building would give the branch the high physical presence it now lacks and would add space for graduate programs. Two of our legislators are optimistic that this can be accomplished, though in different ways at a time when the state is already confronting crushing debt. “It is not a sure thing,” said Rep. Jason Conger. “But it is a reasonably good possibility.” Conger supports purchasing the building because he believes buying would cost less money than leasing. At the moment, the branch is constrained by a ballooning enrollment squeezed into the 13,000 square foot building it leases on the Central Oregon Community College campus. The Edge Wireless building is nearly 30,000 square feet. The branch would move graduate programs into a portion of that building, then lease the rest to Bend Research to expand, possibly to the regional solutions center that Gov. John Kitzhaber would like to start here. There is no question that this is an excellent time to buy in Bend. The opportunity is not likely to be around long. As Conger said, in any other economic time, it’s a no-brainer. But, therein is the problem. It’s not any other economic time. Says Sen. Chris Telfer, “It’s very realistic.” She said she has talked with state Treasurer Ted Wheeler, who is “very supportive.” And she is “pretty confident money is there.” Telfer believes OSU President Ed Ray likes the plan, as does George Pernsteiner, chancellor of the Oregon University System. Telfer, however, raises one caution flag and suggests a slightly different approach. There are many other construction and maintenance needs with the university system. The last thing Telfer thinks the branch should be appearing to do is jumping ahead of all others, even if the opportunity is there, which she says it certainly is. She fears that such an impression could again raise the question — which now seems to be settled — about the wisdom of spending money on the branch when there are so many other needs. “I don’t want to have OSU stuck out there like a sore thumb,” she said. Her suggested option would be to take out a short-term lease on the building with an option to buy. “This is going to happen,” she said. “Everyone is on board for the future.” That statement is a recognition of how far the branch has come in 10 years. Remember, the group that worked hard to bring about the branch was all but dismissed as hopeless dreamers or, in some corners, ridiculed. Ironically, those were good economic times, but it was said the timing was bad and that there were too many other needs. Infamously, the group was told, “starting something here would water down the stew.” But the group persevered and its members challenged Kitzhaber, who then put the startup in his budget. Great leadership at the branch has brought great growth to the institution. It is fulfilling its promise and has become an even surer bet for the future. Now it wants to grow again, and all it needs is what one state official called “budget dust” to do it. Certainly, someone can find that. John Costa is editor-in-chief of The Bulletin.

fell in love By Greg Jaffe The Washington Post pend some time with U.S. Army officers and this much is clear: They are obsessed with drinking tea. At times, tea can seem a bit like the military’s secret weapon. A young U.S. officer bonds with an Afghan elder over cups of the brew, and soon they are working side by side to win the locals’ trust and drive out the insurgents. Much of the military’s belief in tea culture can be traced back to Greg Mortenson and his memoir, “Three Cups of Tea,” a book touted by top commanders and devoured by younger officers. In recent days Mortenson has had to fend off allegations that big chunks of his memoir, which chronicles his work to build schools in some of the most remote and violent areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan, are lies. Both “60 Minutes” and writer Jon Krakauer have alleged that Mortenson has misused money donated to the charity he formed. Mortenson has defended his memoir as largely true and denied any financial impropriety.

No to natural gas favoritism

I

t’s not hard to be a fan of compressed natural gas as a vehicle fuel. It’s cheaper than gasoline or diesel, especially at today’s prices. Compressed natural gas also burns more cleanly.

A bill in the Legislature promoting the gas, though, tilts toward fanaticism. It anoints compressed natural gas as the winner among all the competing alternative fuels in Oregon.

The bill’s sponsor, State Rep. Cliff Bentz, R-Ontario, said in his legislative testimony on Monday that he wants “to start a conversation.” His bill doesn’t start a conversation. It ends the conversation. House Bill 3632 would require the state Department of Energy to give the highest priority for energy facility tax credits to distribution facilities for compressed natural gas. Fuel cells, propane, electric vehicles and all other forms of alternative energy lose. His bill would also require the state department to promote the use of compressed natural gas, advertise it, plan how to convert all the state’s school buses to compressed natural gas and more. We didn’t know the debate over the best alternative fuel was over. And it isn’t. There’s even a lesson here from Bend-La Pine Schools. It needed new buses. Cold temperatures had gelled the fuel in diesel buses in December 2008. The district had to cancel classes. The district shopped around

for alternatives. The school board approved the $2.9 million purchase in January 2009 of 31 buses. Of those, 21 run on propane. And the district is very happy with them. Compressed natural gas is not the one-size-fits-all solution for Oregon Bentz’s bill makes it. The bill would also make a worrisome change in the way the state’s energy department operates. The state energy department now works under the legal direction that it is to be a source of impartial and objective information about energy choices. This bill would make the department partial and not objective. There are some ways in which all alternative fuels are now weak and strong; silly and wise; and bad and good. This bill manages to be exclusively weak, silly and bad. Bentz said Monday he has seen the dollar weaken. He knows there’s uncertainty about the economy. Oregonians are worried about fuel prices. And he wanted to do something. His bill is worse than doing nothing. And at the end of the hearing on Monday, he said he was going to amend it to take all the favoritism out of it. Fuel favoritism is what his bill is all about, so here’s a shortcut: Kill the bill.

Special status for syrup

W

e know caramel syrup is yummy. And cough syrup can be just what is needed to relieve constant hacking. But the Oregon Legislature is on an astounding course to give containers that hold caramel syrup and cough syrup exalted legal status. That is ridiculous even by the Legislature’s standard. Those containers would be two very specific exceptions to a greatly expanded version of Oregon’s bottle law. House Bill 3145, which is awaiting a vote in the Oregon House, expands the containers covered to include basically almost any container with a product designed for human consumption. Ketchup bottles. Maple syrup. Pepto-Bismol. Even containers that people must have for their health needs — those for liquid prescription drugs. We have two questions. If the Legislature is going to expand the bottle bill, why exclude caramel syrup or cough syrup? And frankly we don’t understand why basically every other container needs to be added to Oregon’s bottle law. The original bottle bill was revolutionary, requiring people to pay a 5-cent container deposit when they bought beer and soft drinks. If they returned the container, they would get the 5-cent refund value. It encour-

aged recycling of containers that people are likely to use outside and litter. Oregon’s law set the standard for the rest of the nation to follow. Oregon’s law didn’t change much from when it was passed in 1971 until 2007 when the Legislature included water and flavored water beverage containers. Waste disposal, recycling and consumer habits have, though, changed. Recycling of household waste is still now generally voluntary for consumers in Oregon, but it has to be offered almost everywhere by garbage services. Even the most rural Oregon counties has recycling options, though they are not necessarily convenient or complete. So why tack on a deposit for almost every container? Yes, it would make it more likely that they will be taken to a redemption center by consumers. With new recycling laws that hardly seems necessary. And the bill would also put the state of Oregon in position to essentially tax people trying to get liquid prescription drugs and not tax people who buy caramel and cough syrup. OK, if the Legislature is determined to add more containers to the bottle bill, let’s at least not single out a couple of syrups.

My Nickel’s Worth Keep Tarbet I would like to commend Dave Tarbet on the excellent job he is doing as interim chief of police! Dave is a community leader and his force respects him as does the public. I hope the city of Redmond leadership group sees that the best candidate for the open position is Dave. His background from the state of Utah and the number of years serving the city of Redmond speaks for his success. Fire Chief Tim Moor and Dave Tarbet make a great team to lead the city in safety, law, community support and serving the residents and outer areas connected to Redmond. Keep this team together and give the strength of leadership a chance. The city of Redmond needs this positive force! Lisa DuPere Terrebonne

Taking issue I have to take issue with both your editorials in the March 18 paper. First, your position about helmet laws and the reasoning that it costs “taxpayer,” money is false. I am a successful 45year-old professional. I have health insurance. If I ride my bike in Arizona, without a helmet, and get injured, taxpayers don’t pay my bill; I, and my insurance company, do. It’s my life, my body, and ultimately my choice on how I want to live my life as long as it does not affect others. To make The Bulletin and all others comfortable with letting other adults live as they choose: Simply make car-

rying health insurance mandatory if you choose to ride without a helmet. Case closed. Secondly, the article on the new service dog requirements was very good — right up to the point where your position that a chihuahua in “the produce” aisle does not qualify as a service animal. You are wrong. My wife has a seizure disorder. We also have a chihuahua, that IS a service dog that alerts her before she has a seizure. Our service animal comes with a prescription from our neurologist, wears a vest, and DOES belong in the produce aisle. The Bulletin should get the facts straight before passing an uneducated verdict. Chris Maccari Bend

Patrick Flaherty won I voted for Patrick Flaherty, as did an overwhelming majority of Deschutes County voters, and I would do it again tomorrow! Mike Dugan was fired and he deserved it, and so did much of his miscreant staff. I morally object to the former practices of the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office under the leadership of Mike Dugan. I often wondered how he could have required the prosecution of so many people for the most absurd things ever to go to court; and what kind of groveling people he must have had on staff to try those cases. Now, some of Mike Dugan’s assistant district attorneys are no longer employed at the District Attorney’s office; yet, they have suddenly found enough fortitude to hire

an attorney. Big whoop! Patrick Flaherty is only in the fourth month of a six-year term and probably isn’t through firing people. Dugan had a mess and Flaherty is cleaning up and it’s not going to be fun for anyone. But, that’s how lawyers play. Just remember that Patrick Flaherty hasn’t risen to any of the bait; he just keeps on doing what he said he was going to do with absolutely no comment or nonsense. Obviously, he’s not the flappable hothead the media would have you think. So don’t believe all you hear or read. And Tony Debone, why don’t you cut your own pay? Greg Peed Redmond

Brown for aquatic board I urge Madras residents to vote for Toni Brown for the Madras Aquatics Center board of directors. It’s hard to imagine a more qualified person. A Jefferson County resident since 1969, Toni was business manager for the Jefferson, Culver and Black Butte school districts for a total of 32 years. She’s also a competitive swimmer and triathlete. She currently serves as treasurer for the Central Oregon Masters Aquatics swim group. Before the Madras pool closed, she was a volunteer masters coach. In short, she knows budgets and she knows swimming. She’s committed to her community and would add an experienced voice to the MAC board. Lee Husk Bend

Neighborhood in question appreciates Flaherty’s 911 calls By Joyce Waring Bulletin guest columnist

S

o little has been said in defense of or in praise for our new district attorney, I would like to take a few lines to do just that. The barrage of negative pieces from The Bulletin has made an unfair case against Flaherty. In the court of public opinion, with thanks largely going to The Bulletin, for their relentless attacks, Patrick Flaherty has been wrongIN MY ly judged. Flaherty campaigned on running a tight ship, bringing about justice, cleaning up the way the DA’s office is run, and depoliticizing the position. Well, it is quite evident by the events of late, and the idle chatter of recalling him, that the latter needs tending to immediately. Little did any of us who voted for him realize we would be putting a big red bull’s-eye on his chest, by voting him into the DA’s office. Flaherty has every right to hire supportive staff, and let go the ones who are not team players. In any other situation,

this would not be one bit unusual. Personally, I would not want people around me who didn’t support my vision to bring real justice to the people of Deschutes County. Regarding the 911 calls, as a resident of the neighborhood where Flaherty lives, I have been appreciative that he has called when he noticed suspicious activity. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has encouraged us to call in V I E W such situations, but most of us don’t have the direct line of sight of the problem spot that Flaherty does. Our neighborhood and Tetherow Crossing has met with the sheriff’s department over the last few years to try to find a solution. It was an unsafe area for a long time. Drugs and alcohol made the offenders unpredictable and the fear of being accosted or hit by a drunk driver, kept law abiding families from going near the bridge. With the help of Flaherty, our neighbors, and the Deschutes County council, the problem has been nearly eliminated by the posting of no trespass-

ing and no parking signs near the bridge. This gave the sheriff’s department some teeth to get the offenders off the property, making it possible for all of us to safely pass over the bridge to get our mail and walk our dogs. It is important now for us to be vigilant about informing the sheriff’s department if we see violators to prevent a return of the criminal element. They have asked us for our help. I found it interesting that one of the repeat offenders was sought out by The Bulletin for an interview and was shown in a favorable light. It is quite obvious that The Bulletin is trying to create a false impression by the front page photo of the 911 call records. They state that Flaherty has called the police 293 times in 5 years, which averages out to less than 60 calls per year. During the summer months, when the problem was at its worst, I had seen enough drunken parties at the bridge, that 60 calls seem quite reasonable to me. The Bulletin does not designate how many of those calls were to cancel services if the trouble dissipated before help could arrive.

It is quite obvious that The Bulletin is trying to create a false impression by the front page photo of the 911 call records. In the photo, The Bulletin shows 8 stacks of paper, each paper with 30 lines. It would take less than 10 pages, not 8 stacks of paper to list the number of calls made by Flaherty. The imagery that the Bulletin chose to use to reinforce your story clearly magnifies the apparent density of Patrick’s calls to the Sheriff’s Office (not 911, but the Sheriff non-emergency intake line). The stacks of paper subvert the mind from the stated number of calls to a far larger sum. The legible page on top in front is clearly a sorted report with one line per call from Flaherty — with the visible lines representing some 30 calls. Ten of these pages would contain the number of

call you enumerate. The question is why did you chose to use front page space to publish this photo? Given your tiresome treatment of Patrick, it appears to me to be a deliberate deception. If everyone agrees that his calls have been effective, why does The Bulletin publish such a negative article? I was called for an interview for the “Who is Flaherty?” article, but I declined because I couldn’t be sure my words wouldn’t be twisted to align with a viewpoint that wasn’t my own. I for one would like to see a little support of Patrick Flaherty. I’d like to see the attacks end and Flaherty be given some freedom to accomplish the fine work he promised and is capable of producing. We don’t have all the facts; we have only the skewed information the newspaper wants us to have. We can be sure that Patrick Flaherty has the facts and if given the time and the space, the good man we elected will make Deschutes County proud. Joyce Waring lives in Redmond.


THE BULLETIN • Sunday, May 1, 2011 F3

O Are sky-high gas prices really OK? T

hat is not as dumb a question as it sounds. Examine a few revealing past remarks from President Obama and the Cabinet officials who are now in charge of the nation’s energy use and oil leases on federal lands. Then decide whether the current soaring gas prices are supposed to be good or bad. In 2008, then-Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar — now the secretary of the Department of the Interior in charge of the leasing of federal oil lands — refused to vote for any new offshore drilling. In a Senate exchange with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Salazar objected to allowing any drilling on America’s outer continental shelf — even if gas prices reached $10 a gallon. We can now see why the president appointed Salazar, inasmuch as Obama recently promised the Brazilians that he would be eager to buy their newfound offshore oil — while prohibiting similar such exploration here at home. From 2007 to 2008, Steven Chu, now secretary of Energy, weighed in frequently on global warming and the desirable price of traditional energy. At one point, Chu asserted, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” Chu also lamented, “We have lots of fossil fuel; that’s really both good and bad news. We won’t run out of energy, but there’s enough carbon in the ground to

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON really cook us.” In other words, $10 a gallon for gas would be desirable, while an enormous amount of recoverable American oil, gas, coal, tar sands and oil shale should be left untapped. During the 2008 campaign, Obama himself had strange ideas about the prospect of expensive prices for fossilfuel-generated energy: “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Then-candidate Obama also elaborated on the envisioned role of his administration in ensuring such high prices: “So if somebody wants to build a coalpowered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.” As for consumers’ plight in paying skyrocketing gas prices, the president, now and in the past, has sounded ambivalent. He recently told a questioner, “If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting eight miles a gallon, you know, you might want to think about a trade-in.” Few large passenger vehicles today get only eight

miles a gallon, and many squeezed Americans in recessionary times cannot so breezily think of “a trade-in.” In 2008, Obama addressed consumer fears about climbing gas prices: “But we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling, if everybody was just inflating their tires and getting regular tune-ups. You could actually save just as much.” Note again the fantasy. Few of today’s cars have distributor points. New-generation spark plugs and computerized ignition usually ensure 75,000-100,000 miles without a so-called “tune-up.” There is no evidence that Americans’ tires are chronically under-inflated, or if they were, that such negligence would waste more gasoline than all that could be recovered from new offshore oil drilling. What explains the weird rhetoric from Obama and his administration? First, not long ago they considered high energy prices as not that bad. Government-sponsored mass transit and alternative energy projects — from wind and solar to the federally subsidized Chevy Volt — pencil out only when gas gets expensive. And if you believe in man-made global warming, then the less coal, gas or oil that Americans use, the better for the planet. Second, a president who believes that modern cars get eight miles per gallon or need frequent tune-ups, and

that proper tire inflation can substitute for drilling oil, has never run a business that hinged on having moderately priced gas to power a truck, tractor or car fleet. In fact, most in the Obama administration came to Washington from either academia or prior state and federal government employment, where policy is theoretical, without grounding in real experience. So much of this administration’s talk about energy sounds similar to a bull session in the faculty lounge, or what we would expect from lifelong bureaucrats and public functionaries who have never experienced long commutes or struggles in the harsher, profit-driven private workplace. Now the global economy is recovering and energy use is climbing, as the U.S. dollar sinks. The oil-rich Middle East is in chaos. And more than 2 billion people in India and China are desperate for imported oil. The result is that American gas prices are astronomical, and the public is furious and starting to demand relief from the administration. Its answer? Simple: Since re-election looms, the administration now insists that high energy prices are no longer good, but suddenly bad. And the evil oil companies are mostly to blame!

H

as the more strident forms of scientific materialism. Instead of making us prisoners of our glands and genes, it makes us prisoners of God himself. We can check out any time we want, but we can never really leave. The doctrine of hell, by contrast, assumes that our choices are real, and that we are the choices that we make. The miser can become his greed, the murderer can lose himself inside his violence, and their freedom to turn and be forgiven is inseparable from their freedom not to do so. As Anthony Esolen writes, in the introduction to his translation of Dante’s “Inferno,” the idea of hell is crucial to Western humanism. It’s a way of asserting that “things have meaning” — that earthly life is more than just a series of unimportant events, and that “the use of one man’s free will, at one moment, can mean life or death ... salvation or damnation.”

If there’s a modern-day analogue to the “Inferno,” a work of art that illustrates the humanist case for hell, it’s David Chase’s “The Sopranos.” The HBO hit is a portrait of damnation freely chosen: Chase made audiences love Tony Soprano, and then made us watch as the mob boss traveled so deep into iniquity — refusing every opportunity to turn back — that it was hard to imagine him ever coming out. “The Sopranos” never suggested that Tony was beyond forgiveness. But, by the end, it suggested that he was beyond ever genuinely asking for it. Is Gandhi in hell? It’s a question that should puncture religious chauvinism and unsettle fundamentalists of every stripe. But there’s a question that should be asked in turn: Is Tony Soprano really in heaven?

The big disconnect about American politics O DAVID

n one level, American politics looks amazingly stable. President Barack Obama’s approval rating is about 47 percent, and it hasn’t changed much in well over a year. Health care reform is mildly unpopular, and the public’s view hasn’t shifted much since before it was passed. According to Pew Research Center polls, the public is evenly divided over which party can do a better job of handling foreign policy, the job situation, Social Security reform, health care reform and many other issues. It looks like we’re back to the 50-50 stasis that has been the norm for the past few decades. Moreover, the two parties are about to run utterly familiar political campaigns. The Democrats are going to promise to raise taxes on the rich to preserve the welfare state, just as they have since 1980. The Republicans are going to vow to cut taxes and introduce market mechanisms to reform the welfare state, just as they have since 1980. The country is about to be offered the same two products: one from Soviet Production Facility A (the Republicans), and the other from Soviet Production Facility B (the Democrats). It will react just as it always has. From this you could easily get the impression that American politics are trundling along as usual. But this stability is misleading. The current ar-

BROOKS rangements are stagnant but also fragile. American politics is like a boxing match atop a platform. Once you’re on the platform, everything looks normal. But when you step back, you see that the beams and pillars supporting the platform are cracking and rotting. This cracking and rotting is originally caused by a series of structural problems that transcend any economic cycle: There are structural problems in the economy as growth slows and the middle class incomes stagnate. There are structural problems in the welfare state as baby boomers spend lavishly on themselves and impose horrendous costs on future generations. There are structural problems in energy markets as the rise of China and chronic instability in the Middle East leads to volatile gas prices. There are structural problems with immigration policy and tax policy and on and on. As these problems have gone unaddressed, Americans have lost faith in

the credibility of their political system, which is the one resource the entire regime is predicated upon. The share of Americans who say they trust government to do the right thing most of the time is scuttling along at historic lows. Approval of Congress and most other institutions has slid. Seventy percent of Americans think the country is on the wrong track, according to a New York Times/CBS poll. Nearly twothirds believe the nation is in decline, according to a variety of surveys. Over the past months, we’ve seen a fascinating phenomenon. The public mood has detached from the economic cycle. In normal times, economic recoveries produce psychological recoveries. At least at the moment, that seems not to be happening. The U.S. has experienced nine straight months of slow economic growth. The unemployment rate has fallen, and, in March, the U.S. economy added a robust 216,000 jobs. Yet the public mood is darkening, not brightening. The New York Times/ CBS poll showed a 13 percentage point increase in the number of Americans who believe things are getting worse. Public opinion is not behaving the way it did after other recent recessions. If you dive deeper into the polling, you see the country is not mobilized by this sense of crisis but immobilized by it.

W

Raising taxes on the rich is popular, but nearly every other measure that might be taken to address the fiscal crisis is deeply unpopular. Sixty-three percent of Americans oppose raising the debt ceiling; similar majorities oppose measures to make that sort of thing unnecessary. There is a negativity bias in the country, especially among political independents and people earning between $30,000 and $75,000 (who have become extremely gloomy). At some point something is going to happen to topple the political platform — maybe a debt crisis, maybe when China passes the United States as the world’s largest economy, perhaps as early as 2016. At that point, we could see changes that are unimaginable today. New political forces will emerge from the outside or the inside. A semi-crackpot outsider like Donald Trump could storm the gates and achieve astonishing political stature. Alternatively, insiders like the Simpson-Bowles commission or the Senate’s bipartisan “Gang of Six” could assert authority and re-create a strong centrist political establishment, such as the nation enjoyed in the 1950s. Neither seems likely now. But in these circumstances, rule out nothing.

ROSS DOUTHAT modernity. As our lives have grown longer and more comfortable, our sense of outrage at human suffering — its scope, and its apparent randomness — has grown sharper as well. The argument that a good deity couldn’t have made a world so rife with cruelty is a staple of atheist polemic, and every natural disaster inspires a round of soul-searching over how to reconcile God’s omnipotence with human anguish. These debates ensure that earthly infernos get all the press. Hell means the Holocaust, the suffering in Haiti, and all the ordinary “hellmouths” (in the novelist Norman Rush’s resonant phrase) that can open up beneath our feet. And if it’s hard for the modern mind to understand why a good God would allow such misery on a temporal scale, imagining one who allows eternal suffering seems not only offensive but absurd. Doing away with hell, then, is a natural way for pastors and theologians to make their God seem more humane. The problem is that this move also threatens to make human life less fully human. Atheists have license to scoff at damnation, but to believe in God and not in hell is ultimately to disbelieve in the reality of human choices. If there’s no possibility of saying no to paradise, then none of our nos have any real meaning either. In this sense, a doctrine of universal salvation turns out to be as deterministic

What about American girls sold on the streets? hen we hear about human trafficking in India or Cambodia, our hearts melt. The victim has sometimes been kidnapped and imprisoned, even caged, in a way that conjures our images of slavery. But in the United States we see girls all the time who have been trafficked — and our hearts harden. The problem is that these girls aren’t locked in cages. Rather, they’re often runaways out on the street wearing short skirts or busting out of low-cut tops, and many Americans perceive them not as trafficking victims but as miscreants who have chosen their way of life. So even when they’re 14 years old, we often arrest and prosecute them — even as the trafficker goes free. In fact, human trafficking is more similar in America and Cambodia than we would like to admit. Teenage girls on U.S. streets may appear to be selling sex voluntarily, but they’re often controlled by violent pimps who take every penny. From johns to judges, Americans often suffer form a profound misunderstanding of how teenage prostitution actually works — and fail to appreciate that it’s one of our country’s biggest human rights problems. Fortunately, a terrific new book called “Girls Like Us,” by Rachel Lloyd, herself a trafficking survivor, illuminates the complexities of the sex industry. Lloyd is British and the product of a troubled home. As a teenager, she dropped out of school and ended up working as a stripper and prostitute, controlled by a pimp whom she loved in a very complicated way — even though he beat her. One of the most vexing questions people have is why teenage girls don’t run away more often from pimps who assault them and extract all the money they earn. Lloyd struggles to answer that question about her own past and about the girls she works with today. The answers have to do with lack of self-esteem and lack of alternatives, as well as terror of the pimp and a misplaced love for him. Jocular references to pimps in popular songs or movies are baffling. They aren’t business partners of teenage girls; they are modern slave drivers. And pimping attracts criminals because it is lucrative and not particularly risky as criminal behavior goes: Police arrest the girls, but don’t often go after the pimps. Eventually, Lloyd did escape her pimp after he nearly killed her, but starting over was tough, and she had trouble fitting in. When she showed up at church in a skirt she liked, four women separately came over to her pew with clothing to cover her legs. “Apparently skirts need to be longer than your jacket,” she recalls. “Who knew?” Then Lloyd came to the United States to begin working with troubled teenage girls — and found her calling. In 1998, at the age of 23, she founded GEMS, short for Girls Educational and Mentoring Services, a program for trafficked girls that has won human rights awards and helped pass a landmark anti-trafficking law in New York State. On the side, Lloyd earned a college degree and then a master’s, graduating summa cum laude. Lloyd’s story is extraordinarily inspiring, as is the work she is doing. One of the girls she rescued from a pimp later graduated from high school as valedictorian. But Lloyd’s memoir is also important for the window it offers into trafficking in this country. Americans often think that “trafficking” is about Mexican or Korean or Russian women smuggled into brothels in the United States. That happens. But in my years and years of reporting, I’ve found that the biggest trafficking problem involves homegrown American runaways. Above all, Lloyd always underscores that these girls aren’t criminals but victims, and she alternately oozes compassion and outrage. One girl she worked with was Nicolette, a 12-year-old in New York City who had a broken rib and burns from a hot iron, presumably from her pimp. Yet Nicolette was convicted of prostitution and sent to a juvenile detention center for a year to learn “moral principles.” Our system has failed girls like her. The police and prosecutors should focus less on punishing 12-year-old girls and more on their pimps — and, yes, their johns. I hope that Lloyd’s important and compelling book will be a reminder that homegrown American girls are also trafficked, and they deserve sympathy and social services — not handcuffs and juvenile detention.

A case for hell in a land full of heaven ere’s a revealing snapshot of religion in America. On Easter Sunday, two of the top three books on Amazon.com’s Religion and Spirituality best-seller list mapped the geography of the afterlife. One was “Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back,” an account of a 4-year-old’s near-death experience, as dictated to his pastor father. The other was “Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived,” in which the evangelical preacher Rob Bell argues that hell might not exist. The publishing industry knows its audience. Even in our supposedly disenchanted age, large majorities of Americans believe in God and heaven, miracles and prayer. But belief in hell lags well behind, and the fear of damnation seems to have evaporated. Near-death stories are reliable sellers: There’s another book about a child’s return from paradise, “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven,” just a little further down the Amazon rankings. But you’ll search the best-seller list in vain for “The Investment Banker Who Came Back From Hell.” In part, hell’s weakening grip on the religious imagination is a consequence of growing pluralism. Bell’s book begins with a provocative question: Are Christians required to believe that Gandhi is in hell for being Hindu? The mahatma is a distinctive case, but swap in “my Hindu/Jewish/Buddhist neighbor” for Gandhi, and you can see why many religious Americans find the idea of eternal punishment for wrong belief increasingly incredible. But the more important factor in hell’s eclipse, perhaps, is a peculiar paradox of

Earth, at long last, gets a deserving biography Zoologist optimistic about human survival if we change “Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet” by Tim Flannery (Atlantic Monthly Press, 316 pgs., $25)

By Geoffrey Mohan Los Angeles Times

Earth could use a biography. Tim Flannery has delivered a provocative one right around Earth Day. Despite the rising level of greenhouse gases warming the Blue Planet and the failure to unite governments behind efforts to arrest the trend, Flannery is optimistic for Earth’s future and that of its most destructive inhabitants: you and me. That’s not to say there aren’t reasons to fall into a funk while reading “Here on Earth,” the latest work from one of the planet’s great field zoologists and thinkers. Flannery doesn’t bury the hard facts of climate change. But unlike those who believe the human race has evolved into a species incapable of the long-term thought and unity that can save it from overconsumption, Flannery falls in with those who still believe we can save ourselves, in part by retooling our thinking of evolution. “We have trod the face of the Moon, touched the nethermost pit of the sea, and can link minds instantaneously across vast distances. But for all that, it’s not so much our technology, but what we believe that will determine our fate,” Flannery proclaims in his “dual biography” of the planet and mankind. “Today, many think that our civilization is doomed to collapse,” he writes. “Such fatalism is misplaced. It derives in large part from a misreading of Darwin, and a misunderstanding of our evolved selves. Either such ideas will survive or we will.” “Survival of the fittest” is perhaps the most regrettable and misunderstood phrase in all of science. Absent from Darwin’s work until the fifth edition of “On the Origin of Species,” the phrase has plagued Darwinism for more than a century and has been misused to justify social and economic hierarchy, unequal distribution of resources, imperialist conquest and now the suicide of our species. The best adherent to fatalistic Darwinism is Peter Ward, whose “Medea” thesis (named for the Greek goddess who exacted revenge on her unfaithful husband by killing their children) holds that “species will, if left unchecked, destroy themselves by exploiting their resources to the point of ecosystem collapse,” Flannery writes. But the ultimate trajectory of human evolution, notwithstanding the central catalyst of competition and selection, tends toward a cooperative “super organism” capable of governing its actions to preserve its ecosystem (in this case, an entire planet) and thus its survival, Flannery argues. “If competition is evolution’s motive force, then the cooperative world is its legacy,” he writes. It’s a long intellectual distance to travel from fatalism to guarded optimism, but Flannery pulls it off, guiding readers away

from the social Darwinism of 19th-century philosopher Herbert Spencer toward the subtler insights of Alfred Russel Wallace, “the first modern scientist to comprehend how essential cooperation is to our survival.” To do so, Flannery rests on the theory of James Lovelock and the notion of “Gaia” — Earth as “a self-regulating system made up from the totality of organisms, the surface rocks, the ocean and the atmosphere tightly coupled as an evolving system” that regulates its surface conditions to be favorable to life. The trick, for humans, will lie in our ability to evolve through the climate change we’ve started, and to do so, Flannery argues, we will have to rely on ideas and beliefs transmitted as “memes” in a fashion similar to the replication of the “selfish gene” of Richard Dawkins. Flannery offers examples of cul-

tures whose “memes,” including their taboos and self-sacrificial behaviors, cooperation, sharing and co-evolution, appear to contradict ruthless competition, mitigating it toward the cooperation and moderation that better ensure survival of the whole. There is plenty of room to argue that the human “super organism” lacks a command-andcontrol system that will enable it to coordinate actions in time to save itself. But if ants have accomplished the same feat, as recent science suggests, why not humans? The spirited argument on behalf of man and planet contained in “Here on Earth” constitutes what should be called the Tim Flannery meme: informed optimism about our ability to save ourselves. All it needs for survival is the “Darwinian” resolve to replicate itself in our progeny.

Fort Lauderdale author Elaine Viets’ funny Helen Hawthorne “Dead-End Job” novels mirror our economy, in a way. Helen’s habit of working at low-level jobs that pay in cash allows this character to stay off the grid and dovetails the stories with the current state of the job market — but with far more humor than unemployment checks. While Viets’ 10th novel in this series begins a new story arc, the intent is still the same — a window on how low-paid employees often are taken for granted so much that they seem invisible. In “Pumped for Murder,” Helen, once a well-paid executive, no longer has to take those low-paying jobs because she refused a court order to give her cheating husband lifelong alimony. The ex-husband is out of the picture and Helen has found happiness in her new marriage to Phil, a private detective. To celebrate their new life, Phil and Helen start their own detective agency, Coronado Investigations. Immediately, they land two diverse clients: a woman convinced her husband is cheating on her and a classic car restorer who has always believed that his brother didn’t

commit suicide 25 years ago but was murdered. Helen takes a dead-end job as the receptionist at the Fort Lauderdale gym where the errant husband hangs out eight to 10 hours a day. After all, says Helen, “Low-paying jobs are good ways to observe people. The people who do the work see things the big-wigs never do.” Helen soon finds out that exercise isn’t the gym’s only activity; there are deadly drug deals and adulterous trysts in the locker rooms. “Sweat, sex, ambition and half-naked people are a dangerous combination,” Helen learns. But Phil has a more difficult job — he has to interview witnesses who survived the drug-addled 1980s to investigate the case for their other client. The breezy, well-plotted “Pumped for Murder” moves at a fast clip, fueled by Viets’ perfect comic timing. But Viets also knows when to keep the plot serious when “Pumped for Murder” explores extreme fitness fanatics, steroid use, alcoholism and corrupt businesspeople. South Florida readers will especially enjoy the references to local landmarks such as 15th Street Fisheries, while St. Louis readers will feel the same when Helen visits her hometown and has a slice of gooey butter cake.

‘THE PLASTICS AGE’

Book displays good and bad of life with plastics “Plastic: A Toxic Love Story” by Susan Freinkel (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 324 pgs., $27)

By Sandy Bauers The Philadelphia Inquirer

Not long ago, an irate reader emailed me, demanding to know whether I like plastic. He was convinced that I didn’t, that I just wouldn’t admit it, and that all of this made me a bad person. He further demonstrated his superiority in the matter by typing in the subject line, “wow u r really dumb.” I barely knew how to respond. He might as well have asked if I liked gravity. Or the Pacific Ocean. If ubiquity is a measure of affection, we all love plastic. It’s everywhere, from our cars to our kitchens. It’s a mainstay in the medical profession. It brings us unbreakable toys and the modern marvel — the credit card. The promise of plastic is “convenience and comfort, safety and security, fun and frivolity,” says author Susan Freinkel in her new book. But note the title: “Plastic: A Toxic Love Story.” Somehow, things have gone awry in Plasticville. “Sure, plastics have been a good provider, but that beneficence comes with many costs that we never even considered in our initial infatuation,” she writes. “Plastics draw on finite fossil fuels. They persist in the environment. They’re suffused with harmful chemicals. They’re accumulating in landfills.” Yet all the while, our dependence on plastic has continued to grow. In 1940, there was almost none. Today, the nation generates 600 billion pounds a year. This is an important book, a thorough dissection of the complexities that today’s plastic world presents. More than that, it’s flatout fascinating, each chapter more compelling than the last. Each page brings another eyebrow-raising fact or statistic, all of it eloquently told. Freinkel tells the story of plastics through the lens of eight common objects: comb, chair, Frisbee, IV bag, disposable lighter, grocery bag, soda bottle and credit card. “Each offers an object lesson on what it means to live in Plasticville, enmeshed in a web of materials that are rightly considered both the miracle and the menace of modern life,” she writes. As she points out, these simple objects “tell tangled stories.” Perhaps nowhere has plastic achieved more for modern civilization than in the medical profession. “With plastics, hospitals could shift from equipment that had to be laboriously sterilized to blister-packed disposables, which improved in-house safety, significantly lowered costs, and made it possible for more patients to be cared for at home.” In telling the story of medical plastics, Freinkel visits a neonatal intensive care unit in Washington, where baby Amy, born four months early, is fighting for her life. She depends on plastic devices of every sort. But as Freinkel watches the tiny girl struggle to breathe, she also thinks about how “research now suggests that the same bags and tubes that deliver medicines and nourishment to these most

vulnerable children also deliver chemicals that could damage their health years from now.” She’s speaking of phthalates and bisphenol A, which are hormone disrupters and are present in some plastics. Freinkel takes us to a huge vortex of plastic trash in the Pacific Ocean, formed by currents. She delves into the world of bioplastics and a Nebraska producer of plant-based plastics. She introduces us to Californian Mark Murray, who pushed for state legislation to ban plastic bags. And who knew that among the Chester County, Pa., Wyeths was the inventor of the PET soda bottle? Nathaniel Wyeth, painter Andrew’s brother and a plastics engineer at DuPont for nearly 40 years, filed his patent for it in 1973. Today, about a third of the 224 billion beverage containers sold in the United States are made of PET. But it’s also true that their growing presence as litter has helped rally and focus the nation’s recycling movement. “We take natural substances created over millions of years, fashion them into products designed for a few minutes’ use, and then return them to the planet as litter that we’ve engineered to never go away,” Freinkel says. “What will it take to turn that mindset around, to get people to value plastic for more than a onenight stand?” In the final analysis, it’s not whether anyone likes plastic or not, but whether things are out of whack. In the face of environmental ills, what are we to do once we’re finished with it? If additives are a problem, how can we get them out? And, in a future of decreasing supplies of oil, a base for many plastics, would we rather have transportation fuel or disposable cutlery? In the final chapter, Freinkel takes us to a bridge over the Mullica River in South Jersey — made of nearly 1 million used milk jugs, with a few old car bumpers tossed in. The builder noted that “all the negatives about plastic — that it lasts long and doesn’t degrade — are being turned into positives.” Today, Freinkel says, “for better and for worse, we are in the plastics age. ... Will archaeologists millennia from now scrape down to the stratum of our time and find it simply stuffed with immortal throwaways ... evidence of a civilization that choked itself to death on trash?” Sandy Bauers is The Philadelphia Inquirer’s environment reporter.

Packer characters are sharply focused “Swim Back to Me” by Ann Packer (Knopf, 240 pgs., $24.95)

By Gail Pennington St. Louis Post-Dispatch

In “Molten,” one of the six stories in Ann Packer’s new collection, a mother hides a guilty secret from her husband and daughter. Whenever they’re out — and she longs for the hours they’re out — she holes up in her son’s room, curled in his beanbag chair, and plays CD after CD of the rock music he loved.

Only listening to the scream of guitars and the thunder of drums brings back the boy who died in an accident. Packer, best known for the absorbing (and ultimately frustrating) “The Dive From Clausen’s Pier,” is a master at getting to the heart of characters struggling on in the face of loss. “Swim Back to Me” is best enjoyed for Packer’s sharply focused snapshots of people at pivotal points in their lives, a focus so intense that we can feel as if we’re spying on them.

Jenna Bush in her own words Former first daughter discusses her books, work with UNICEF By Nancy Chipman Powers Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — Jenna Bush Hager, a correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show, is the daughter of former President George W. Bush. She is the author of “Ana’s Story: Journey of Hope” (HarperCollins, $18.99) and “Read All About It!” (HarperCollins, $17.99), which she co-wrote with her mother, former first lady Laura Bush. Hager and her fraternal twin, Barbara Bush, were college students when their father was sworn into his first term as president in 2001. With a flurry of media coverage, Hager was cited for alcohol possession later that year. However, her public image has been on the mend in recent years. Hager graduated in 2004 with a degree in English from the University of Texas at Austin and later taught school in the Washington, D.C., area. She married Henry Hager in 2008 and was hired by “Today” in 2009.

Q:

Your first book, “Ana’s Story: Journey of Hope,” was inspired by your work with UNICEF in Latin America. Tell me about your experience. How did that influence the path your life has taken? My job for UNICEF was to travel around Latin America and document — write the stories — of kids who were living in exclusion, meaning they were living in poverty or had HIV-AIDS, faced abuse, or didn’t have access to food or clothing or school. During this time I met so many really inspirational kids, one of whom was Ana. She was 17. She’s been infected with HIV-AIDS since birth. Her parents and her younger sister died from it by the time she was in the sixth grade. She was a teen mother; I met her with her baby. She was forced to drop out of school in her country because she had her baby. She was living with so much hope that she was going to have a better life, and that she was going to have a better life for her baby. In fact, her baby is HIV-negative. She’s broken the cycle of HIV. It is a narrative nonfiction; I mean, it is her story. I spent nine months documenting her life, meeting with her almost every day that I lived in the region.

A:

in public office, but it’s just not something we’re interested in.

Q: A:

Q: A:

Where did she live in Latin America? Panama, but we didn’t say that in the book, because unfortunately many of the kids we met faced discrimination and we didn’t want her to get hurt.

Q: A:

And how has that experience influenced your life? It has influenced my life in so many ways. I already traveled to Africa and Latin America before I moved there, but really getting the chance to spend time with kids like Ana — and Ana, in particular — was so inspirational. Because even though these kids were dealing with really heavy loads, they were living with this amazingly bright attitude. I always tell people, especially my students or kids that I work with, when you have the opportunity and the privilege to work with kids and people that need you, you get so much more out of it than they get from you.

Q: A:

How did being the president’s daughter shape your life? Of course, it was such an incredible opportunity — you know, my parents introduced us to so much during those eight years, including trips to Africa and Latin America. We got to meet extraordinary people through their work, so it was a great, great opportunity.

Q: A:

Except that you grew up in the spotlight during your teen years. But that was OK. The good outweighed the bad, for sure.

Q: A:

How did you get past that and fix your party-girl image? I never was worried about my image, honestly. I mean, I think people who knew me knew who I was, so I wasn’t worried about that.

Q: A:

What do you see in your future? Public office? More books? No, not public office. You know I’m working for NBC right now for the “Today” show, and that’s so much fun. I love being able to tell the stories of normal people who are making extraordinary change. I do hope to write more. That is my goal for this summer, (to) take a little time from NBC and be able to spend some time writing. But who knows? We’ll see if that happens.

Don’t Replace ... Reface

Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, is a special contributor for the NBC “Today” show and an author. But no public office. You know, my sister and I, ironically — maybe not that ironically — aren’t that interested in traditional American politics. We’re more interested in policy. And there are plenty of ways to serve. We respect everybody who serves

How did you get your job with “Today”? I went on the “Today” show after I wrote “Ana’s Story” and then after I wrote “Read All About It!” Both times I was on the “Today” show, and the executive producer, who runs the show, approached me and just said, “You’re really good, you know, and we think you should be on television.” And I laughed at it — thought he was kind of kidding. And then, of course, over time he kept acting interested. My husband and I talked about it. He thought, ‘This is such a great opportunity. You love to write. Do it for a year and see what you think.’ And I’ve loved it. I’ve been able to go to Haiti, Ethiopia, Guatemala, and then all over our country telling amazing stories. So it has been a great opportunity. I’ve signed on for two more years in September, so I obviously liked it.

EDITH PIAF

Mysteries grip a small town

Singer was small in all but voice and heart

“The Coffins of Little Hope” by Timothy Schaffert (Unbridled Books, 272 pgs., $24.95)

By Scott Ditzler McClatchy-Tribune News Service

“No Regrets: The Life of Edith Piaf” by Carolyn Burke (Alfred A. Knopf, 284 pgs., $27.95)

By Steven Rea The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Just look at her. How can such a big voice belong to such a tiny woman?” That’s Marcel Cerdan, the ’40s French boxing champ, marveling at the mighty intonations emanating from the street urchin-turnedchanteuse Edith Piaf. That the two became lovers, carrying on a lengthy transcontinental affair while he clobbered opponents in the ring and she floored audiences in clubs and concert halls, came as no surprise to intimates of Piaf — she was drawn to men of strength and character. The relationship ended when a plane carrying Cerdan from Paris to New York — where she waited — crashed in the Azores. No survivors. Piaf, the child of a circus acrobat and a singer, raised in gritty poverty — and, for a time, in a brothel — never got over the loss. It was 1949. Piaf was 33. She died at 48 after a life full of doom and tragedy, and full of songs — street songs, defiant songs, songs of love and broken dreams — that tore at the soul, and inspired a nation. “No Regrets: The Life of Edith Piaf” is essential reading for Piaf fans, and they are legion, still — witness the success of “La Vie en Rose,” the 2007 Oscar-winning biopic with Marion Cotillard as “the little sparrow.” Carolyn Burke, a rigorous researcher and a Francophone (she’s Australian, and learned the language in part by singing along to Piaf discs in a Paris garret), has expanded on previous Piaf biographies, debunking myths and misconceptions and getting at the heart of the matter. And the heart of the matter when it comes to Piaf is just that: her heart. Passion, pluck, the pursuit of love — and lovers, including John Garfield and Yves Montand. The diminutive entertainer with the “assaultive vibrato” wore her heart on her sleeve, as a scrawny teen singing for change on Pigalle corners, and as a global star spreading her hands out in the sweep of a theater’s spotlight. Burke — whose books include “Lee Miller: A Life,” the riveting biography of another strongwilled woman, the American model-turned-photographer and artist’s muse — takes a straightforward chronological tack with Piaf. If the author’s writing can sometimes be dry, her observations are astute, and her skills as a biographer daunting. Burke is determined to honor her subject without resorting to stereotypes or recycling the apocryphal. “The cliche of Piaf as self-destructive waif is too rigid to allow for her complex humanity,” Burke writes in her introduction. Working from interviews with Piaf friends and colleagues, from letters and journals, films and recordings, and from previous Piaf books, Burke explores those complexities — taking the reader through five storm-tossed decades: the remarkable rise from guttersnipe warbler to the darling of Paris nightlife; her collaborations with songwriters and lyricists; her mentorship of artists such as Montand and Charles Aznavour, and her work, and friendship, with Jean Cocteau (he wrote a play for her to star in — which she did, atremble with stage fright). Often, in pursuit of obscure facts and intimate details, a biographer can overlook, or simply take for granted, the big stuff — the essence of the subject. Happily, with “No Regrets,” this is anything but the case. Throughout her book, Burke draws the connections between Piaf’s life and her songs (offering deft translations of key lyrics), linking the artist with her art, the lover with the thing she loved most — her music. Piaf was, as Burke notes toward the close of this eloquent and enlightening story, “a people’s diva whose courage matched her extraordinary gifts, a soul who gave of herself until there was nothing left but her voice and the echo of her laughter.”

Department of Defense via The Associated Press

In this 2009 photo, “Three Cups of Tea” co-author Greg Mortenson shows the locations of future village schools to U.S. Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the opening of Pushghar Village Girls School in Afghanistan. Mortensen’s book can be found at most U.S. military bases in Afghanistan and is considered required reading.

Tea Continued from F1 “Three Cups of Tea” and the follow-up, “Stones Into Schools,” were much more fun to read than the military’s counterinsurgency doctrine and carried with them a far more uplifting message. Never mind that the government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai sometimes seemed like a poorly managed kleptocracy, his books seemed to say. Pay no attention to the fact that Afghanistan often could be a brutish and inhospitable place. Mortenson’s narratives of wise, patient and kind Afghan and Pakistani elders made it seem as though progress in Afghanistan was achievable. All U.S. troops had to do was learn the Afghan culture, show some patience and deliver a little bit of progress, and the Afghans would see the U.S. military’s good intentions and turn against the Taliban. In this formulation, counterinsurgency — a complex, morally ambiguous and frequently bloody type of war — came to look a bit like social work with guns. By mid-2009 Mortenson was making the rounds at military bases across the country and meeting with top officers such as Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gens. David Petraeus and Stanley McChrystal heralded his work. The mountain-climber-turnedphilanthropist visits about two dozen posts each year to lecture to troops deploying to Afghanistan on “the nuances of tribal warfare,” according to a U.S. Army website. Dogeared and dirt-encrusted copies of his memoir can be found at the most remote Afghan outposts. In April he was the keynote speaker at a major U.S. Army strategy confer-

ence on the future of the Army officer corps and officer ethics. Pentagon officials have declined to comment on Mortenson’s predicament. Mortenson’s biggest impact, however, is evident in the writings of Army officers who embraced his call to tea. Last year, Lt. Col Patrick Gaydon and Capt. Jonathan Pan wrote of their alliance with Haji Abdul Jabar, a district governor in Afghanistan’s violent Arghandab district. “Like Greg Mortenson’s best seller, ‘Three Cups of Tea,’ our relationship with Jabar was forged over chai during the late summer and fall of 2009,” the two officers wrote in a piece for Small Wars Journal, a website where military officers debate battlefield strategy. Jabar was courteous but reserved when he first met the two earnest soldiers. Once he came to know Gaydon and Pan, his reserve melted away, according to the officers, and Jabar treated them as family. Jabar was killed as he drove home from work last June, a sign that “stabilization was working in Arghandab,” according to Gaydon and Pan. (The somewhat tortured thesis is that the Taliban killed him because his work with the Americans was winning the support of previously indifferent locals, thus threatening the Taliban’s power base.) The story could have been lifted right from the pages of Mortenson’s collected works. But the reality wasn’t quite as cheery. Other U.S. officials working in the area concluded that Jabar was skimming funds earmarked for U.S. reconstruction in his district but not sharing the spoils with others in the area. “It was a mob hit,” one U.S.

Self Referrals Welcome

official told The Washington Post. “We were getting played the whole time.” Not everything about the military’s embrace of Mortenson’s tea philosophy has been counterproductive. “I’d say the biggest value of Mortenson’s work was in creating the ‘don’t be a jerk’ school of counterinsurgency,” said Joshua Foust, who worked as an Afghan analyst for the Army. “I think it would be a shame to abandon the idea of trying to respect the people you’re trying to reform with guns and money just because one of the people promoting the concept is shown to be a fraud.” In the near term, Mortenson’s stumble will almost certainly lead to greater soul-searching among officers who have been questioning not only Mortenson but also the broader heartsand-minds approach of this war. And the controversy is likely to spur more discussion about the limits of American goodwill and influence in a place such as Afghanistan. “No amount of tea with Afghans will persuade them that we are like them, that our war is their war or that our interests are their interests,” said Michael Miklaucic, a longtime official with the U.S. Agency for International Development who is currently serving at the Pentagon’s National Defense University. “The war in Afghanistan isn’t about persuasion or tea. It is about power.” Greg Jaffe is a military correspondent for The Washington Post and the coauthor of “The Fourth Star: Four Generals and the Epic Struggle for the Future of the United States Army.”

“Vainly I had sought to borrow / From my books surcease of sorrow — sorrow for the lost Lenore …” So laments the narrator of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.” His love is gone, and as the bird repeatedly reminds him, sure to return “Nevermore.” There aren’t any talking birds in Timothy Schaffert’s engrossing new novel, “The Coffins of Little Hope,” but there is a missing girl named Lenore. Or is there? At 83, Esther (Essie) Myles has buried two husbands and one son and has worked since the eighth grade writing obituaries for the County Paragraph, a small-town Nebraska newspaper. She’s a spry octogenarian, a great-grandmother who enjoys “three or four whiskeys of an evening” and serves as the novel’s keeneyed narrator. The alleged disappearance of Lenore is the story of a lifetime, and its telling, Essie explains, “began not as a book but as an obit of a kind for a little girl who up and went missing one simple summer day. On this girl we pinned all hopes of our dying town’s salvation.” Scandal sells papers, a fact that Essie’s grandson Doc, editor in chief of the County Paragraph, is well aware of. “In the newspaper business,” he says, “your only real commodity is bad bad bad news.” There’s just one small problem; nobody has ever seen Lenore. The only evidence of her existence is a single Polaroid, too blurry to make out, and her mother’s word, which is less than reliable. Lenore’s mother, Daisy, claims that her daughter was abducted by a man named Elvis, a pilot and photographer in the business of selling people aerial pictures of their own farms. The story goes that Elvis charmed Daisy, and then after a night of drunken seduction, flew away — literally — with her 11-year-old daughter. Essie is skeptical: “In the morning Elvis was gone, and Lenore was gone too. Or as many might say, she was not gone at all but suddenly there, newly sprung

from the mother’s imagination.” The bizarre nature of the story soon sparks national interest. Subscriptions to the County Paragraph are on the rise. Lenore, real or not, develops a cult following. A group known as the “Lenorians” begins to assemble at Daisy’s farm. Sympathetic parents of missing children send her presents and fan letters, and a television series, “Missing in America,” devotes an episode to Lenore. But a missing child isn’t the only game in town. A series of young adult books known as the “Miranda-and-Desiree series” has reached a Harry Potter level of international popularity, and because of the risk of leaked copies, the publisher “was seeking presses in obscure parts of the country where it could covertly print the novels.” The County Paragraph’s press is commissioned. Security is so tight that “employees were subjected to pat-downs and searches of their lunch boxes by private security.” The 11th and final book in the series is slated for release. As it happens, Daisy worked at the press before Lenore vanished, and after she begins making CB broadcasts that may or may not be excerpts from the final book, the reclusive author of the series, Wilton Muscatine, takes notice. For all the mystery and intrigue in the plot of “The Coffins of Little Hope,” the novel is at its heart an examination of hysteria and the blurry line between fact and belief. “For some of us,” Essie notes, “Lenore was nothing but a captivating hoax, while for others, she was a grim tragedy, a mystery cynically left unsolved.” In many ways Essie is more concerned with what Lenore represents than the details of her alleged disappearance. What she represents depends on whom you ask, which elicits the question: Does it matter if Lenore is real or not? In Essie Myles, Schaffert has created a unique and memorable narrator. She’s no stranger to tragedy, proudly declaring, “I’m as much a part of the traditions of death as a gilded lily.” And she certainly doesn’t need a black bird tapping at her chamber door to remind her that life, by its nature, promises loss.

ANALYSIS

Why we pay more and more for gas at the pump

Sam Gangwer / Orange County Register

Property owner Ben Garizi and Rebecca Smith, a real estate agent, have joined forces after they say they were bilked by Karen Hanover, a real estate sales woman recently arrested and indicted on charges of impersonating an FBI agent.

A realty scam, ‘spoofing’ and a fake FBI agent By Peggy Lowe The Orange County Register

SANTA ANA, Calif. — At first, Rebecca Smith was relieved when she got a phone call from an FBI agent. It was October, just a few months after Smith had spent $30,000 on a real estate investment. The woman who sold her the deal, Karen Hanover, hadn’t come through on any of her promises, and Smith was worried. Smith noticed the caller ID read “US Gov.” The male voice identified himself as an FBI agent and said he was working on an investigation into Hanover’s dealings. But the agent quickly became angry, scaring Smith. “I was trying to explain something and he said, ‘Just shut up and answer the questions,’” Smith recalled. “So now I’m shaking.” The agent demanded the names of other people who had invested with Hanover, people Smith had been talking to about how they, too, hadn’t received anything Hanover had promised. The conversation went from bad to worse. “He says, ‘You better watch your back.’ He says, ‘I’m going to throw your ass in prison. I’m going to testify against you.’ He says, ‘You’re a psycho. You’re this, you’re that,’ “ Smith said. “Then I got mad.” She didn’t know it yet, but Smith had been “spoofed” by the very woman the faux FBI agent said he was investigating, federal officials say in court papers. Hanover, 44, a Seal Beach, Calif., real estate saleswoman, was arrested in February and was indicted later that month. She faces an August trial on charges of impersonating an FBI agent by using spoofing software, an online service that allows a caller to disguise a number and create false outbound numbers on caller ID to fool people.

The Vault, the second data center to open in Central Oregon during the last month, is the latest project for BendBroadband, a family-owned company that began operations in 1955 and has become known in recent years for its adoption of cutting-edge technology.

to that legacy,” according to a recent review from CED Magazine, a publication for the cable and communications industry. Data centers, essentially buildings filled with computer servers, consume energy. But BendBroadband designed the Vault to be environmentally friendly, filling the roof with solar panels, cooling the building mostly with outside air and buying electricity through a renewable energy program, said Leonard Weitman, vice president of technical operations. While Facebook built its Prineville data center for its own use, BendBroadband created the $16 million Vault in northeast Bend, in part, as a business venture. The Vault also houses the company’s network operations center, where employees monitor BendBroadband’s Internet, cable TV and telephone operations around the clock. “This (network operations center) is not going to go down,” Weitman said. Data halls in the Vault offer individuals and companies, such as St. Charles Health System, a secure, reliable and environmentally friendly place to store sensitive data. “When BendBroadband announced its intent to construct the Vault, St. Charles saw it as an opportunity to revitalize its IT infrastructure core,” William Winnenberg, St. Charles’ chief information officer, said in a news release provided by BendBroadband.

With gasoline prices up by more than a dollar a gallon from a year ago, motorists are fuming and wondering who to blame: speculators, oil companies, refiners, local gas stations, government — maybe all of the above? Rising fuel costs, along with increasing food prices, are threatening to slow or even choke off the Inside already-weak • Which gasrecovery from saver to get? the recession. Page G3 A barrel of benchmark U.S. crude oil that cost around $86 on the New York Mercantile Exchange before Libya descended into civil war in February costs more than $110 now. Americans are conserving, using about 1.6 percent less gasoline than a year ago, but some experts don’t foresee a dramatic drop in demand until the national average tops $4. It was $3.886 on Thursday. While the oil industry blames the price of crude oil for the rising prices at the pumps, skeptics ask if the companies are capitalizing on it.

Lenovo aims a campaign at the Apple crowd By Tanzina Vega New York Times News Service

New York Times News Service ile photo

Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo is trying to introduce American consumers to products like its hybrid PC that detaches to become a tablet.

Quick. How many Chinese brands can you name? Probably not many. While China has been known for its manufacturing prowess, branding its own products has not been its strength. That’s why the Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo, largely un-

known to the average American consumer, is trying to get its products into the hands of the coveted 18- to 25-yearold Apple generation, which has been raised on all things iPod and iPad. “The most difficult thing in marketing and branding is trying to change the perception,” said David Roman, the company’s senior vice president, “but Lenovo had very little recogni-

tion in the consumer space.” It’s a tall order, but in January, Lenovo partnered with Saatchi & Saatchi, part of the Publicis Groupe and the company’s agency of record, to work on a new advertising effort. The resulting campaign, which will begin in May, is estimated to cost $100 million. The campaign’s focus is action, specifically the idea that Lenovo prod-

ucts are “for those who do.” One 30second television spot shows a blinking cursor on a computer screen, the flame from a gas stove being turned on and a pencil being sharpened. “The world won’t move forward by itself,” says a narrator. The world needs “the people who do. The ones who tinker, who build, who create.” See Lenovo / G3

For many graduates, the old college try falls short ‘Mal-employment,’ a term from the ’70s, has surfaced again to haunt grads By Alejandra Cancino Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Tiffany Groene is waiting tables. Erin Crites is making lattes and iced coffees. And Anna Holcombe is buying and selling gold. These three Chicago women share more than just scraping by with low-paying jobs: They all have master’s degrees and are unable to find work in their specialty areas. There’s even a name for their situation. They are referred to as mal-employed, a term coined in the ’70s for college graduates who could not find jobs that require a degree. Instead, they settle for low-skilled jobs. Even in rosier economic times, people with college degrees sometimes can’t find jobs in their fields. But their numbers and the trend show no sign of easing during the slow and bumpy recovery from the recession. Nationwide, about 1.94 million graduates under age 30 were mal-employed between September and January, according to data compiled by Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University. Sum said mal-employment has significantly increased in the past decade, making it the biggest challenge facing college graduates today. In 2000, Sum said, about 75 percent of college graduates held a job that required a college degree. Today that’s closer to 60 percent.

Uphill struggle Though the economy is growing and new jobs are being created, Sum said, those graduating in June are not likely to see major improvements. About 1.7 million students are projected to graduate this spring with a bachelor’s degree and 687,000 with a master’s, according to the U.S. Department of Education. “We are doing a great disservice by not admitting how bad it is for young people (to get a job),” Sum said. And the longer college graduates go without working in their field, the harder it is to land interviews for jobs where they would use their degrees. “It’s hard to convince people that what I am doing is relevant,” said Groene, 27, who has tended bar and waitressed during the two years she’s looked for a job related to her master’s degree in public administration. In that time, she’s had one offer in her field. It came in 2009 from Chicago Public Schools but disappeared before she could start, due to budget cuts. Desperate, she took a job as a bartender. She said she quit six months later, upset by the sexual advances of bar patrons. With no income, she moved back to her father’s house in Rockford, Ill. At times, she found it difficult to leave her bedroom because she felt depressed. She said she wasn’t used to not succeeding. An avid soccer player, Groene was drafted to go to college and drafted again to become an assistant coach at Columbus State University in Georgia, where she earned her master’s degree. “You feel so down,” Groene said. With the support of her family, she ventured out again last month and took a job as a waitress in Chicago. She said it’s the best job she’s had in two years. She also slowed down her job search and is back in school pursuing a master’s in education. “I can’t find anything anyway,” she said, adding that more schooling allows her to start from scratch. Experts say Groene’s situation is hardly unique. When everything else fails, graduates are more likely to go back for more education. Those with a bachelor’s sign up for a master’s, and so

Tiffany Groene, 27, center, talks to customers while she waits tables in Chicago. Groene works at the restaurant to make ends meet though she has a master’s degree and has been searching for a job in her field for two years. on. Some take a step back, either to look for new opportunities or retool their fields of interest. Bill White, for example, is pursuing a second bachelor’s degree. He looked for a job for about six months before graduating in December with a master’s in public relations and advertising. Unable to land one, the 28-year-old has shifted his focus to mechanical engineering. While college graduates are still more likely to land a job than those without degrees, the fact that so many are not finding jobs in their fields has raised questions about the payoff of a college education. Since he got his bachelor’s degree last May, Kirk Devezin II has worked full-time a little more than six months and has freelanced. He has never made more than the $10.36 an hour he earned as a barista at Starbucks when he was a student at Eastern Connecticut State University. “I apply to jobs constantly, constantly, constantly,” he said. He has interviewed for positions related to his communications degree, but lately, all the interviews have been for barista and cook jobs, and one at a carwash. Sensing that employers in low-wage industries might think he is overqualified, he has left his college degree off the applications. “It just seems like it was just a big waste of time,” said Devezin, 24, who still lives in Connecticut. “And I’m $20,000 in debt.” The numbers show that he’s wrong — experts say earning a college degree is still the best way to avoid unemployment.

Smaller value, but still value “The value of the degree is still there; it is just not returning as much in investment as it would a few years ago,” said Carl Van Horn, director of the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University. In fact, those who land a job in their field do well, but those who are mal-employed earn just slight-

ly more than high school graduates, according to Sum’s research. For example, the mean wage for those mal-employed is $476 a week, while those with a job that requires a degree earn $761. By comparison, a high school graduate earns $433. Erin Crites, 27, makes $10.55 an hour as a barista at a coffee shop in downtown Chicago. She is struggling to pay her bills and has considered cutting her health insurance — a situation she was hoping to avoid by earning a master’s degree. Crites graduated in June from Dell’Arte International, a theater school based in California. She sought a master’s degree in ensemble-based physical theater, figuring that such a specialized degree would make it easier for her to land a job. But Crites graduated as schools cut back art programs and arts-based nonprofits struggled to secure grants. “You can get as close as you can to work solely as an artist without a source of secondary income ... but it’s almost impossible,” she said. Still, Crites is determined to make it in her field. As long as she keeps her passion, she will find a way in, she said. Though barely getting by, Crites is lucky. Nationwide, there were about 2 million unemployed people older than 25 with at least a bachelor’s degree — nearly 1.3 million more than in March 2007, according to the U.S. Labor Department. On a small plaza near the DePaul University College of Law, a group of students about to graduate were socializing when a reporter approached. Most said they didn’t expect to land a lawrelated job. One student said he was told by a potential employer that there was no reason to hire him when the firm could hire an experienced lawyer for the same salary. That situation is becoming more commonplace. Anna Holcombe, who has a master’s degree in public relations and advertising, said she’s often

competing for jobs against people who only have bachelor’s degrees or are willing to work for free just to get their foot in the door. “It’s a struggle,” she said, adding that at age 31 she doesn’t have the luxury of being able to work for free. She has responsibilities, including bills due at the end of the month. Until she gets a position in her field, Holcombe is holding on to her job as a sales associate at a retail store. She got the job to pay bills while at school, never thinking it would be so difficult to let it go.

Gas

of their capacities, 7.3 percentage points less than a year earlier. They can go as high as 95 percent of rated capacity. In addition, gasoline sold in the spring and summer is more expensive to produce because federal environmental law requires gasoline to emit fewer vapors. That is accomplished by using less butane, a cheap ingredient that helps to “stretch” the supply of gasoline.

Continued from G1 Here’s a look at the forces at work from the oil well to the gas pump:

Finding and extracting oil Gasoline’s journey to the pump often begins in remote or dangerous parts of the world. Crude oil accounts for about 65 percent of the price of gasoline, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Nations that form the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries own about threequarters of the world’s proven oil reserves, allowing the cartel to manipulate supplies and prices. And its members include Libya, where a civil war has completely shut down its 1.8 million barrels a day of production. Though not a large amount, it raises fears that violence could spread to major producers. OPEC says there’s no shortage of crude. Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest exporter of oil, earlier this month confirmed earlier reports that it had cut output by more than 800,000 barrels per day in March because of weak demand for their oil. The country is producing 9 million barrels a day. OPEC ministers have repeatedly said there is little they can do to bring down prices, and they do not meet formally to reconsider output policy until June.

Buying, selling crude Before that black goopy stuff heads to a refinery, someone pays for it. Since the world buys and sells crude oil with dollars, when the dollar slides, as it has since January, it buys less. Because of the greenback’s falling value, it takes more dollars to buy the same amount of oil today than it did in January. But the correlation is not precise. About a third of the recent price increase is tied to the dollar, according to Chris Lafakis, an economist at Moody’s Analytics. “When the value of the dollar falls, a higher price is necessary to bring global supply in line with global demand,” Lafakis said. About another third of the recent price increase is from what Lafakis calls the “supply uncertainty premium,” an additional cost that insures against market disruptions and can show up in price speculation. Companies can buy crude oil for immediate use, or they can protect against potential market swings by locking in prices months or even years in advance on a futures exchange. Oil producers, refiners and end users held slightly more than half of the light sweet crude oil futures and options contracts reported on the New York Mercantile Exchange in March, according to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. But their 55 percent of the market has shrunk since January by 2.1 percentage points, while money managers who invest in the market to try to make a profit, have increased their share by a similar amount.

At the pump Elaine Thompson / The Associated Press

Ryan Riemath fills his tank with $4.199-a-gallon regular gas last week at a Shell gas station in Bellevue, Wash.

Relief in a new car? Choose with care A new car is arguably the most radical cure to gas price shock, and even that takes some careful homework. A gas-electric Prius or an all-electric Nissan Leaf will enable you to thumb your nose at gas pumps, but there are other things to consider. TrueCar.com last month released a study on the 10 most fuel-efficient cars sold in the United States. The Prius, with a combined city/ highway fuel mileage rating of 49.6 miles per gallon, topped the list. Yet the ninth most fuel-efficient car, a four-cylinder, gasfueled Hyundai Elantra, is the better deal economically, by TrueCar’s reckoning. The average purchase price of a base 2011 Elantra is only $15,052, yet it costs only $531 more to fill up annually with a combined city/ highway fuel mileage rating of 33.1 mpg over 15,000 miles. Beyond hybrids and all-electrics, an increasing number of domestic and foreign cars are high-mileage, traditional gas-fueled vehicles, a byproduct of 2008 gas prices and government mandates for higher-mileage automaker fleets. “The 40 mpg club is getting a whole lot bigger in the U.S. at just the right time, when gasoline is regularly topping $4 per gallon in many parts of the country,” noted Scott Doggett, an associate editor of Edmunds. com. “These cars are great choices for consumers who want better fuel economy but aren’t ready to make the switch to hybrid or electric vehicles.” — The Sacramento Bee With the Federal Reserve keeping interest rates low, investors have searched for more fertile ground to grow their cash. “If you’re a person that has money to invest — the dollar being destroyed as it is — you’re not left with very many options,” said Porter Bennett, president and chief executive officer of Bentek Energy, a Colorado firm that ana-

lyzes energy markets. Oil, he said, is “probably the best investment out there.” But speculators play an important role keeping cash flowing through the market and often cushion price swings, market experts say. “Those speculators are people that run retirement funds, pension funds, a lot of money markets funds,” said Bennett. Market fundamentals of supply and demand account for the remaining third of the increase in price, said Lafakis. The United States uses 18.8 million barrels of oil a day, accounting for 22 percent of world consumption, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, but developing nations increasingly clamor for more crude to fuel their growing economies. China, now the world’s second largest oil consumer after the U.S., uses about 9.6 million barrels a day, accounting for half of the global growth in oil consumption in the past decade, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Janet Yellen said in a speech in New York City earlier this month. “Although real activity in the emerging market economies slowed appreciably immediately following the financial crisis, those economies resumed expanding briskly by the middle of 2009 after global financial conditions began improving,” she said. The recession drove cars and trucks off the road as people cut back, depressing demand. The economic recovery means more people aren’t just getting paychecks; they’re filling up their tanks. “As economic activity is picking up and the economy starts to do better, the immediate demand for oil starts to rally,” said Gene McGillian, an analyst at Tradition Energy, an energy adviser and brokerage firm.

Refineries We can’t burn crude oil in our cars; it needs to be refined first. The cost of producing gasoline from crude comprises about 14 percent of the price of gasoline, statistics show. Planned and unplanned refinery outages here and abroad are blamed by experts as contributors to the recent price run-ups. The American Petroleum Institute estimated that U.S. refineries last week were using only 81.3 percent

Gasoline’s next-to-last stop is the local service station, where taxes, competition and the retailer’s need to make a profit decide what you pay. Sometimes refineries sell directly to distributors who sell to service stations. Also, a terminal can take temporary ownership of product. “There’s all sorts of different arrangements,” said Lipow, the petroleum expert from Houston. Again, the value of gasoline can change as it sits in the tanks. Prices at the “racks,” where gasoline trucks load up to deliver to gas stations, can vary as much as several times a day and are set by whoever owns the gasoline. Retailers often get some of the blame for rising prices, but the retailers say they are just as helpless as their customers to control prices. Kevin Beyer, president of the Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association, says markups per gallon for most stations range from 11 cents a gallon to 18 cents a gallon — out of which the station has to pay all its expenses. Stations change their prices based on competition — sometimes from stations that filled up on cheaper gas, Beyer said. Occasionally a gas station has to raise prices because it knows the replenishment cost will be higher and competition won’t allow it to raise pump prices by a like amount, Beyer said. Factors affecting prices include distances from distribution terminals or pipeline; differences in property taxes and real estate costs; variations in wages of the people who staff gasoline stations; the station’s competition, or lack thereof, at its particular location; and differences in prices among distributors — even to two stations selling the same brand in the same town. Said a spokeswoman for Gulf when asked recently about differences at two of its Long Island stations: “It really is the discretion of the service station owner to set their prices.” Prices also vary by whether the station is contracted to buy gasoline from one supplier or whether it is an “independent,” free to find the cheapest on a given day, Beyer said. Underlying it all is that there are no government price controls on gasoline; wholesalers and retailers are free legally to charge whatever the market will bear for their products — as long as they provide what they advertise: a full gallon of gasoline with the specified octane and are not taking advantage of a supply shortage and absence of competition by “gouging.”

$150 OFF package of 5 Lenovo Continued from G1 The campaign portrays these “doers” as people who are known for doing something extraordinary. Print ads feature a new Lenovo laptop in a variety of situations, including as part of the dashboard of a car outfitted with gadgets for a storm chaser, and harnessed to the space between the handlebars on a motorcycle as it is driven through a desert. The tagline on the ads reads, “We make the tools. You make them do.” A digital billboard installation shows a 360-degree moving image of the motorcycle laptop contraption and provides technical details highlighting the laptop’s computing power. To help develop the creative elements of the new campaign, Saatchi & Saatchi conducted research with 18- to 25-year-olds and learned that they were ambitious and optimistic, said Claudine Cheever, the agency’s chief strategy officer. The campaign was designed to embody the ideals of pragmatism, authenticity and the act of getting things done. But aren’t millennials more captivated by design and coolness than pragmatic electronics? Not according to Cheever, who said technology was “not just a badge, it’s a tool.” The advertising initiative includes digital banner ads and rich media ads on the Web, television spots, digital billboards and a smattering of print ads. The ads will run on cable outlets like ESPN, Bravo and MTV, and on technology websites like

CNet.com. Outdoor advertising has begun in nine cities, including New York, Atlanta and San Francisco. Lenovo’s last consumer campaign, called “Ideas Anywhere,” was tied to the company’s sponsorship of the Beijing Olympics and ran from August 2008 to November 2009. Before heading out into the real world, the company brought the message in-house and rallied employees with new business cards, T-shirts, building signs and new e-mail signatures. The internal campaign events took place in April in Lenovo’s offices in Madrid and Raleigh, N.C., and was an extension of a employee training program called “The Lenovo Way,” which began in 2009. Leaving no stone unturned, Lenovo also rebranded the packaging for its products and the kiosks it takes to trade shows. One thing Lenovo already had going for it in the consumer brand space was its IBM ThinkPad brand. But Lenovo had to take that brand recognition and make it “relevant to a broader consumer base,” Cheever said. “How do you take the ThinkPad equity and mine that for something a 25-year-old is going to relate to?” The company purchased the IBM PC division in 2005, and has since begun manufacturing smartphones in China. It announced a hybrid tablet notebook, the IdeaPad U1, at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. The ad campaign will feature new products, including the Lenovo ThinkPad X1, a slim laptop aimed to compete with the

MacBook Air laptop. The campaign also includes various media partnerships, including one with the youth-oriented nonprofit organization DoSomething.org. The co-branded campaign will begin this summer and will encourage teams of people under 25 to take on projects to improve their communities. The winning teams will be eligible to win Lenovo products. Lenovo’s Mexico office is also forging a media partnership with MTV Mexico to create a new reality show Web series and cobranding opportunities to aim at the youth market in that region.

“I don’t believe you can have a technology brand that doesn’t come from the youth market today,” Roman said.

Vault Continued from G1 “We signed on as an anchor tenant knowing that by relocating our operations to the Vault, our strategic needs would be served well into the future.” BendBroadband also envisions the Vault providing businesses a virtual IT department, part of what’s known as cloud computing. In the simplest terms, companies forced to fill climatecontrolled rooms with racks of computer servers to store evergrowing amounts of data would have another option. The Vault will rent businesses the computer equipment and the staff needed to keep it running. “If somebody wanted to create a new company and they didn’t want to build their own (computer system,)” Weitman said, “conceivably, they could build it here.” BendBroadband appears to have launched the Vault at the right time, at least according to some analysts. The amount of personal information — such as health records and financial data — being digitized continues to increase. So does the legal requirements for storing and protecting it, according to a report by Amy Larsen DeCarlo, principal analyst for security and data center services for Current Analysis Inc. All that data needs to be stored somewhere. IDC, a technology research firm, estimates revenue for providing cloud computing services to businesses will increase from $22.2 billion in 2010 to $55.5 billion by 2014, according to a story

Scam Continued from G1 Federal prosecutors say Hanover used the spoofing service to call Smith and others so she could threaten and intimidate them into staying quiet about her real estate dealings. The FBI is also investigating whether Hanover bilked dozens of investors of up to $30,000 each with promises that she could teach them how to obtain commercial property with little money and receive full return on the investment, court documents show. Hanover sold online lessons and held large seminars at hotels across the country, billing herself as an entrepreneur, author and commercial real estate expert. John Early, Hanover’s attorney, declined to comment for this article. Hanover did not respond to phone calls. Despite the charges, Hanover’s many online promotions — and propensity to videotape her messages for mass appeal — remain on the Internet and have become fodder for several sites where people describe her as a scam artist and share details of her arrest. After Smith made her investment with Hanover, two months passed without a word. “Two months after you wired the money into her account — nothing. People were in a frenzy,” Smith said. Hanover finally called Smith, told her that she was fighting legal problems and promised that they would soon get coffee together. But another month passed, and Hanover still hadn’t contacted her. Smith reached out to others who had bought into the same program and started commenting on a blog dedicated to exposing Hanover. That’s when she received the call from the faux FBI agent. After being relieved, then scared, Smith finally became angry at the fake FBI agent’s threats. She called the number back and talked to a true representative who assured her agents don’t act

The KyotoCooling system keeps the Vault cool using outside air about 75 percent of the time, according to BendBroadband.

Leonard Weitman, BendBroadband vice president of technical operations, explains how the KyotoCooling system draws in outside air to keep servers in the data hall cool at the Vault, BendBroadband’s new data center in northeast Bend. in The New York Times. The federal government, which released its own cloud computing strategy in February, would likely consider BendBroadband’s Vault part of the public cloud, which is infrastructure available for lease to the public and businesses. BendBroadband calls it a colocation data center, with multiple parties storing information in the same building, Weitman said. The mix of customers required BendBroadband to install a security system that can be custom-

ized to allow some customers access to certain areas to install and service their own servers. But other customers, such as anchor tenants St. Charles and an unnamed financial services company, have legal obligations to ensure their data remain secure. To demonstrate its commitment, BendBroadband has sought certification that its design and operations meet standards for reliability and has safeguards in place for hosting others’ data. Along with dual electrical systems providing electricity, the

Vault has two 2,900-horsepower diesel generators providing backup power. The company even advertises the region’s “very low threat of seismic activity.” BendBroadband also plans to seek Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification for the Vault’s environmentally friendly features. Along with the 624 solar panels, Bend-made PV Powered solar inverters and renewable energy purchases through Pacific Power’s Blue Sky Program, the Vault

uses outside air 75 percent of the time to stay cool. It’s funneled into the building by a two-story heat-exchanger, part of the largest KyotoCooling system in North America, Weitman said. It has a program in place to pur-

chase carbon credits, and even the landscaping has been designed to reduce water and energy use.

that way. Eventually, she filed a report with an FBI agent. In an FBI report filed with Hanover’s indictment, an agent reported that none of Hanover’s investors was ever placed in any properties, nor did Hanover honor the money-back guarantee. Hanover also bragged to a former employee about using the spoofing service to fool Smith, according to the agent’s affidavit, and she proved it by using the software to call the former employee with a number from the FBI’s Miami field office. Hanover’s dealings have been reported to the California Department of Real Estate, which regulates licenses, and it was confirmed in a letter to at least one victim that the agency is investigating her for the commercial property seminars. If any wrongdoing is found, she could face the loss of her license or other disciplinary actions. If convicted of the federal criminal counts, Hanover faces three years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Smith, who said she’s lost $37,000 to Hanover, is now the clearinghouse of contacts for people who say they have been victimized by Hanover. Several other investors and a former employee contacted by The Orange County Register said they wouldn’t comment on the record because they say Hanover is known for threatening litigation against anyone who crosses her. Hanover lists a Seal Beach post office box on her real estate license and has been living at a multimillion-dollar, 3,700-square-foot, waterfront property in Naples, the island neighborhood in Long Beach. The house — with four bedrooms, six bathrooms and a 2,000-square-foot flat roof built for parties — is owned by Ben Garizi, 65, of Irvine, Calif., who rented the house to a Hanover friend in November 2008. Hanover paid the first month’s $6,000 rent, Garizi said, but has refused to pay anything since then. Garizi has tried to evict her several times, but she has made several

legal counters, claiming deficiencies in the house, he said. The case is currently tied up in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Garizi’s financial loss on the home and on another nearby has forced him into foreclosure on both properties. Garizi says Ha-

nover has told him that she wants him to lose the house so she can ultimately buy it at auction. He says she has intimidated him with threats of legal action and has warned him not to come into the house because she owns a gun. Garizi, who owned a construc-

tion company, has filed for bankruptcy and faces foreclosure on his own home in Irvine. He blames it entirely on Hanover. “I lost my credit. I lost my business. I used my savings for my children’s college. Everything,” he said. “That house was like a baby

for me.” Smith is helping Garizi try to get a loan modification for the home where Hanover lives. They hope to become partners in a business dedicated to buying distressed properties, fixing them and flipping them.

S D  Smooth on rough terrain, and vice versa Land Rover LR4 not well-suited to urban traffic jams By Warren Brown Special to The Washington Post

NEW YORK — Workmen were demolishing a gas station on the southbound side of the Palisades Interstate Parkway. I wish I had known that before leaving my daughter’s home in Cornwall, N.Y., some 70 miles north. I was driving to Manhattan’s SoHo neighborR E V I E W hood on the bottom of the West Side at the top of the rush hour in a 2011 Land Rover LR4 sport utility vehicle. The fuel gauge showed less than a quarter of a tank of gasoline. That was bad news made worse by the LR4’s real-world mileage — barely 12 miles per gallon in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. I had visions of running out of fuel in the middle of frantic West Side traffic, snarling the commuter rush, enduring vicious ridicule and honking, and possibly making David Letterman’s show as the suburban boob in the expensive, gas-guzzling, four-wheel-drive SUV with a 5liter V-8 engine (375 horsepower, 375 foot-pounds of torque) who didn’t know it needed gasoline to guzzle. I turned off every energy-con-

Land Rover via The Washington Post

The Land Rover LR4 is a smooth performer on rough terrain, and vice versa. suming device — sound system, heating and ventilation — not needed to help the LR4 run safely. I cursed Land Rover for thinking that onboard navigation was an option, which the model in my possession did not have. Navigation systems can pinpoint the location of the nearest fuel stations. I desperately needed that guidance. But luck intervened. I spotted a BP station near Houston Street. Ever since its ignoble role in last year’s Gulf Coast oil spill, I had shunned BP. But with my fuel gauge moving precipitously close to empty, I was ecstatic to buy BP gasoline, even at $4.85 a

gallon for the required premium unleaded. I filled up and considered the virtues, and lack thereof, of the LR4. Luxurious and impeccably put together, it belongs in a family of vehicles that includes the super-luxury Range Rover HSE and Autobiography. But there is something about the LR4 that speaks to 1948 — Land Rover’s first year in business — when the British-born company began rolling out a flatpanel four-wheel-drive work machine nicknamed “the farmer’s friend.” The LR4 is a work of elegant, highly capable muscle. It is the Land Rover you want on a con-

struction site or in an off-road run. It is so wonderfully competent in the rough — blessed with a five-way adjustable suspension that adapts to surface conditions — that you are tempted to keep it there. But in the city, the LR4 is a motorized albatross. In urban traffic jams, its mileage falls to a miserable nine miles per gallon. Its overall height (74.1 inches) helps the driver see over and look ahead of most city traffic. But that height is maddening to motorists behind the LR4, who frequently, perilously, try to whip around it to regain sight advantage. None of the bad stuff mattered

much to me after I found fuel. I was just happy to keep moving. The LR4 is a remarkable vehicle — gasthirsty, improbable in its allocation of standard and optional equipment, far from the besthandling vehicle on the road, but superior to all others in the rough. There’s an allure about it. I can understand why people buy and drive it. Just get it with the navigation system. Ride, acceleration and handling: Ride is good on-road and in the rough. On-road handling may be too trucklike and imprecise for some drivers. Highway acceleration is very good. Capacities: Seats for five people. A third-row seat for two more passengers is optional and not recommended by this column (too close to rear liftgate). Cargo capacity ranges from 42.1 cubic feet to 90.3 cubic feet depending on the number of seats installed and whether the second-row and third-row seats are folded. The weight of what can be carried onboard is 1,325 pounds. The LR4 can be equipped to tow a trailer weighing 7,716 pounds. The fuel tank holds 22.8 gallons of gasoline. Premium is required.

Q:

My fuse for the brake lights keeps popping. I was made aware of the problem after almost being rear-ended, then figured out the stop lights weren’t working. I’ve had to replace the fuse several times over the past month or so and am getting frustrated having to constantly check the lights or worry when they’ll stop again. Any ideas of what I could check before bringing it in? This is a creepy situation that needs to be resolved right away. I’d start by looking for details regarding this fuse in either the vehicle owner’s manual or a professional-grade automotive service database such as On-Demand-5 or Alldata, which may be available at your public library. Your first objective is to determine if other circuits such as the horn are protected by the same fuse. This is commonly done, I believe, in a safety-related circuit, to make a blown fuse more noticeable. Knowing what

A:

is protected helps you create a shopping list for components and wiring to be checked, and what isn’t of concern. Next, purchase a box or two of five fuses of the correct amperage — you’ll pop a few during our test procedures. Never install a larger fuse. Let’s assume your horn and brake lights share the same fuse, which places both circuits on our list. Have you used the horn during the period of time when the fuse has popped? Try renewing the fuse, then honk the horn for perhaps five or 10 seconds and see what happens. If the fuse blows, locate the horn and unplug it; there might be more than one. Renew the fuse and repeat the test. If the fault goes away, plug the horn back in, and see if the fuse again fails when the horn sounds. This would pin the fault to the horn unit. If the fuse pops with the horn unplugged, the fault is likely in the wire between the horn relay and horn. If there are two horns, try plugging them in one at a time. A visual inspection of the wiring would

be your best chance at finding a wire injury; it’s likely to be chafing against a grounded, sharp metal object. If the horn works well with no fuse issues, try the same test with the brake lights, this time pressing the pedal for perhaps one minute continually. If the fuse pops after pressing on the brake pedal, the fault is between the brake pedal switch and the brake lights. Following this circuit will likely require detailed circuit information found in a pro database. The objective will be to locate all connectors between the two places, unplug them and renew the fuse. Then with the brake pedal continually pressed (use a stick or similar) plug them back in, one at a time from back of car to front. When the fuse pops, you’ve located the fault area. Short circuits often happen in or near lamp sockets or near moving or hot machinery; they may surface via vibration. Other causes of a fuse blowing can be too many or too large accessories

or faulty components. Intermittent shorts can be tough to find. Purchase an inexpensive buzzer, such as Radio Shack’s model 273-055 for about $4, and press its two slender wires into the two sides of the fuse cavity prior to gently installing a new fuse. When the fuse pops, the buzzer will sound. This way you’ll know what the fault conditions were — did I honk or brake? — and you’ll also have immediate warning the brake lights are no longer functional. If none of this helps, seek professional help immediately. Brad Bergholdt is an automotive technology instructor at Evergreen Valley College in San Jose.

COMMENTARY

Progress is tough, so try to keep track ZACK HALL

• Count ALL your strokes in the early season, when snowmen — the dreaded “8” — make your scorecard look like an animated Christmas special. Counting all those bad shots is a tough pill for amateurs, including me, when you know you are just weeks from playing better golf. But regardless of the temporary pain it may cause, count every chunk, whiff, skull and shank. Why? Well, it’s not about cheating. It’s about tracking your progress. The idea is simple. You are going to better appreciate that 85 you are bound to shoot this summer if you suffer through a couple of triple-digit eye-openers early in the season. • Stop worrying so much about your handicap. Kelly Neely, the Oregon Golf Association’s senior director of handicapping, estimates that 1 to 2 percent of

e are all searching for that ONE thing that will take our golf games from bogey player to tour pro. Maybe you think a tiny swing adjustment will do the trick, or that shiny new driver will resolve your issues. I often think a tweak to my putting stroke will suddenly turn me into Ben Crenshaw, and so I constantly tinker. The bottom line is that we all the ask the question: “How do I play great golf?” And inevitably, we come up short of finding the answer. In a lot of ways that’s what makes golf unique: It allows us to dream big, even if we are long past the age at which we can pin our hopes on becoming a fireman or a big league center fielder. Well, if you are hoping for answers from your local golf writer, forget about it. Like most amateur golfers, I have been searching for that ONE thing far too long, and I have never come close to finding it. I offer no silver bullet that would assure great golf. But I do have some ideas on how to better track even modest improvements in your game this season.

Count ALL your strokes in the early season, when snowmen — the dreaded “8” — make your scorecard look like an animated Christmas special. Counting all those bad shots is a tough pill for amateurs, including me, when you know you are just weeks from playing better golf.

Save the date all golfers with handicaps are “sandbaggers,” the lowest form of golfer. Sandbaggers tend to “forget” to post their good scores and never neglect to post that 110 in order to boost their handicap and give themselves an advantage during net tournaments. Interestingly, Neely estimates that about 10 percent of golfers are actually “vanity” handicappers, who ditch their unmentionable rounds to make their handicap look better. These folks are less annoying, as they are harming only themselves. But the question is: Why? Golfers should focus less on what their handicap index is and more on what that handicap is telling them. For instance, if your handicap has crept higher, maybe it’s time for a lesson with your favorite golf pro rather than a cue to toss that 105 into the garbage bin. • Try something new. Don’t get so wrapped up in the score that you are afraid of taking a risk. Conservative golf is generally a good way to play the game, to be sure. But with great risk, sometimes, comes great reward. This is not about foolish plays requiring a once-in-a-lifetime ball strike to pull off a shot. Amateurs should never play that way.

But going for a green in two shots when water might be in play near the green? Well, that might be worth the gamble. Honestly assess your ability, and if you deem the risk worth it, go for it. After all, this game is supposed to be fun. And how else will you know what your limits are as a golfer unless you try something outside your comfort zone?

• Maybe most important, seek professional mental help. Well, not seriously. But golf is a game in which “perfection is unobtainable,” as character Roy McAvoy said in the 1996 movie “Tin Cup.” That pursuit of unreachable perfection is what makes the game so addictive and yet so maddening. But remember, the PGA Tour likely won’t be beckoning, so lighten up. And more important, be honest with yourself. You might actually find that joy can be found from more than a score. In fact, the greatest joy in this great game can come from knowing that you truly improved, however incrementally.

THE COURSES

Change in store at area tracks Central Oregon golf facilities are set to get face-lifts By Zack Hall The Bulletin

The boom of new Central Oregon golf courses over the past quarter of a century has ended. But that does not mean change is not afoot. At least four Central Oregon golf courses — Awbrey Glen Golf Club in Bend, Black Butte Ranch’s Glaze Meadow, Eagle Crest Resort’s Ridge Course in Redmond, and Sunriver Resort’s Crosswater Club — are either currently undergoing or have plans on the drawing board for some significant makeovers this season. Millions of dollars in new investment could be a good sign as the region’s golf industry still struggles to recover from a slowly healing economy. “It is very encouraging, absolutely,” says Scott Ellender, director of resort operations at Sunriver Resort, which plans to begin replacing all 18 greens at Crosswater late this summer. Here are some of the major changes golfers can expect to see at area courses in the weeks and months ahead:

Glaze Meadow

Scheduled dates for when Central Oregon golf courses are expected to aerify greens in 2011. Dates are subject to change.

Don’t bother booking a tee time this summer at Black Butte Ranch’s Glaze Meadow course. It won’t be taking any. No Central Oregon golf facility is pouring more money into its product this year than Black Butte Ranch is with Glaze Meadow, which is closed for 2011 as it undergoes a $3.5 million renovation. Black Butte Ranch hired John Fought — a highly regarded architect whose design credits include worldclass Crosswater (with former partner Bob Cupp) — to oversee the renovation, which figures to be complete in early 2012. Fought says Glaze Meadow will take on a classic feel inspired by the designs of legendary golf architect Donald Ross, whose most famous work includes Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina. “It’s really going to be special,” says Jeff Fought, Black Butte Ranch’s director of golf and brother of John. “It’s going to have a design that will take us back to the golden age of the 1920s. It’s really going to be neat.” Work on Glaze Meadow, which was originally designed by longtime Central Oregon golf pro Gene “Bunny” Mason and opened in 1980, began last

Crosswater Club Crosswater Club is no stranger to attention. But in its last two years as host

of The Tradition (2009-10), Sunriver Resort’s flagship course and the bestknown golf facility in the region got a little bit of unwanted focus as a handful of its greens struggled to recover from winter in the months before the Champions Tour players arrived for the August golf tournament. Crosswater’s issues are familiar to Central Oregon. Poa annua — an an-

nual bluegrass that runs rampant in the Pacific Northwest — had taken root and dominated Crosswater’s previously perfect bentgrass greens. The problem with poa annua is that it is often slower than bentgrass to recover from freezing temperatures, often leaving unsightly brown patches and uneven putting surfaces. Continued, next page


That won’t be a problem for Crosswater much longer. On Aug. 15, Crosswater plans to close down the course for the season to replace all 18 of its greens with a premium-grade bentgrass. The entire investment is expected to cost about $500,000, says Ellender. But the cost is worth it, he adds. “We’re really excited to get those greens back to 100 percent bent(grass),” Ellender says. “This is the newest, greatest bentgrass out there, and we’re excited. “They’re going to be unbelievable.” And for those worried about Crosswater’s greens for this golf season, Ellender says to fear not. “The course has come out of winter the best it has in years,” Ellender says. “We’re going to have no issues with our greens.”

Eagle Crest Resort Eagle Crest was sold last year by Klamath Falls-based Jeld-Wen to Northview Hotel Group and privateequity firm Oaktree Capital Management LP in a deal that also included the Club at Brasada Ranch in Powell Butte and Running Y Ranch in Klamath Falls. And already the winds of change are blowing at Eagle Crest, which has decided to switch the nines (holes No. 1-9 will become Nos. 1018; Nos. 10-18 will become Nos. 1-9) at the Ridge Course this season in an

Buerger says the change should improve golfers’ access to restrooms and access to food at the turn. The new hole alignment also should make for a stronger finish to an 18hole round and provide a more logical location for the course’s pavilion, a gathering place during tourna-

ments that will be located just off of what is now the 18th green. But perhaps most important, the change should improve pace of play by moving easier holes to earlier in the round, Buerger says. “The toughest three-hole stretch on the course used to be the first three holes on the course,” says Buerger, noting how golfers would tend to get bogged down on the early holes and

The management and membership of Awbrey Glen Golf Club have hired the Bend-based design firm of famed architect David McLay Kidd, DMK Golf Design, to give a face-lift to the 18-year-old golf course. Kidd’s assignment will be to create a long-term master plan aimed at making incremental improvements to the golf facility that could take perhaps as long as 20 years to complete. The idea is to make the parklandstyle course, a member-owned private golf club that opened in 1993, more playable using the path that Bunny Mason mapped out nearly two decades ago. “We’re not going to start over,” says Mark Amberson, Awbrey Glen’s general manager, who has been with the club since its inception. “We are going to make some tweaks.” Kidd says he expects to present the plan to members in late May, and some simpler tasks — such as the removal of some little-used turf to make way for some native landscaping — could begin almost immediately.

CENTRAL OREGON GOLF SURVEY

Golfers look at more than price when choosing where to play Central Oregonians reveal they want a quality course, too, as they give feedback on the state of the local golf industry By Zack Hall The Bulletin

Value is not the only quality that attracts golfers to a particular facility. In our annual online survey, The Bulletin recently asked readers a range of questions about the Central Oregon golf industry, and 174 responded. Of those respondents — 84 percent of whom describe themselves as avid golfers — 69 percent say perceived value is still an important factor in deciding where to play golf. But even more, 71 percent, say overall course quality is a major factor in the selection process. “Affordability definitely makes a difference, particularly in these difficult

times,” writes a 60-year-old Bend golfer who makes River’s Edge Golf Course in Bend his golfing home. “However, we all love the quality of our local courses and the fact that owners and superintendents are always working to improve them.” Most of Central Oregon’s 30 golf courses received at least one vote from survey respondents as a favorite course. Widgi Creek Golf Club in Bend garnered the most support with 23 votes, followed by Aspen Lakes Golf Course in Sisters and the Club at Brasada Ranch in Powell Butte, which each received 17 votes. Like the aforementioned Bend golfer, Central Oregonians want a quality

place to play golf and at an affordable price. But how well are Central Oregon’s courses doing in providing that combination? The Bulletin asked that question, and many others, too.

Affordability Whether or not facilities are meeting golfers’ demands is a question sure to spark debate among players. And the survey respondents offered a split opinion, too. A narrow majority of golfers, 51 percent, say that Central Oregon courses have not done enough to make golf affordable here. But that leaves 49 percent who do think golf courses ARE doing enough. “Some golf courses are trying to make golf more affordable; I think Tetherow (Golf Club in Bend) is a good example; Widgi another,” writes a 70year-old Bend resident. But he adds that most facilities could do more to help golfers. “Many courses are hoping things

will ‘turn around,’ but as a person who studies the economy, this is not going to happen soon,” he says. “Continued creative marketing on the part of golf courses will be a must for survival. I personally think a focus on seniors should be more strongly considered, with nine-hole fees, twilight rates, etc.” Indeed, 60 percent of respondents list affordability of golf in the region as their top complaint, and many golfers believe more courses should cater to locals. “You cannot continue to have such expensive green fees, especially in the peak season,” writes a Bend golfer in his 60s. “I guess if all you want to do is cater to out-of-area golfers, you will not survive in these tough economic times.” Not all objections have to do with cost: 36 percent of respondents complain of Central Oregon’s short golf season and unpredictable weather.

Like 11 percent of his fellow respondents, a 58-year-old Camas, Wash., retiree who owns a second home at Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond believes the pace of play at many of Central Oregon’s public golf courses is troublesome. “My personal beef is generally the pace of play has degraded at public courses and this seems to be regionwide,” he wrote, adding that in his opinion Aspen Lakes Golf Course in Sisters and Lost Tracks Golf Club in Bend are two of the faster courses to play. “For me, (slow play) is a killer and I find that I am limiting the courses I play to those who are committed to maintaining a reasonable pace of play.”

More golf The good news for the Central Oregon golf industry is that 61 percent of respondents to our survey say they are planning to spend more money on golf this season. But the reasons offered for spending more vary. After two years of holding off on large purchases because of the shaky economy, a 59-year-old Sisters resident says this year will be different. “Earlier this month I picked up a new set of Callaway Razr irons, reflecting my growing opinion that the worst is over for the country’s economy,” wrote the golfer, a 14 handicap. “Our situation has not changed, we’re just feeling more confident in the economy.” Others are spending more golf dollars on their children. “Since my kids are getting older and taking more of an interest in the sport that means my family is paying for them to play (plus gear for them),” wrote a 36-year-old mother and golfer from Bend.

Major tournament After a four-year run at Sunriver Resort’s Crosswater Club that ended in 2010, The Tradition has left a hole in this season’s golf schedule. But losing the Champions Tour major championship to Birmingham, Ala., does not seem to bother some folks who think Central Oregon does not need a high-profile golf tournament to make it a viable golf destination. “Watching professional golfers doesn’t make me want to play more Central Oregon golf,” writes a 62year-old Portland resident who owns a second home at Eagle Crest. “Although there may be a recession of sorts, Central Oregon’s landscape, climate and other recreational activities, those things that caused the influx of people in the past are still there. People will still come, they just might be a little more prudent in the future.” But many in the region would like to see a return of major competitive golf, whether that means a charity

• Eagle Crest Resort starting Redmond Youth Golf Experience: Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond is launching a six-week program that will emphasize an unconventional approach to helping junior golfers learn the game. Golfers ages 6 to 12 will be introduced to the game through on-course experience rather than customary teaching, says Eagle Crest director of instruction Tam Bronkey. The idea is to introduce golf to kids who have little or no experience by playing the game first. The program begins Monday, July 11, and is scheduled to run every Monday from 4 to 6 p.m. through Aug. 15. Cost is $65; golfers do not need their own golf clubs.

• COJGA set for 17th season: The Central Oregon Junior Golf Association will once again spend the summer fostering the talent of budding golfers. Beginning in June, COJGA will host eight Monday tournaments at golf courses around the region, wrapping up with the Tournament of Champions on Sunday, Aug. 14, at Sunriver Resort’s Woodlands course. Membership fee for junior golfers ages 9 through 18 is $60; cost for each additional golfer in the same family is $30. Each tournament carries an entry fee of $20 per golfer. COJGA offers an introductory program for players ages 6 to 8, for whom the membership fee is $15 and the per-event fee is $8. Golfers who have never played in COJGA must attend a new-member qualifier; the qualifiers will be held May 23-27 at Awbrey Glen Golf Club in Bend. For more information, visit www. cojga.com, or call Woodie Thomas at 541-598-4653. • Play free golf: Tetherow Golf Club in Bend will again be offering free golf all summer to players between 12 and 17 years old. Interested golfers must attend an orientation class and game evaluation with a Tetherow director of instruction on Saturday, May 7, starting at noon. Cost for the orientation is $40. Once approved, junior golfers can play at Tetherow for free after 3 p.m. throughout the summer. Those golfers not approved will be invited to attend a series of free junior clinics in May and June. For more information or to reserve a spot in the orientation class, call Bob Duncan at 541-749-8253. • More free golf: Again this season, Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond will offer free rounds of golf after 3 p.m. any day to any junior golfer accompanied by an adult. Juniors not accompanied

by an adult can play Eagle Crest’s Resort and Ridge courses for $10; Challenge Course for $5.

One of the more visually stunning courses a golfer can find in Central Oregon, and that is saying something. The ponderosa pine-lined Sisters course, which uses red cinder in all its bunkers, is a challenge for golfers of every skill level.

Eagle Crest Resort: Ridge, Resort, Challenge courses

Resort Course: The oldest of the three courses at Eagle Crest is for the most part a position golf course, with tight fairways and small greens. The difficult 481-yard, par-5 second hole features an extremely narrow fairway that rests at the bottom of a small, juniper-lined canyon, and it takes a sharp right turn toward the green about 350 yards from the tee box. Ridge Course: A wide-open bomber’s paradise that rewards aggressive golf. Ridge, which is not a particularly long track, is loosely lined with juniper trees and has plenty of rough to work with. The downhill 190-yard 12th hole is a true beauty. On a clear day, players are greeted at the tee box by unobstructed views of Mount Jefferson and Mount Hood. Challenge Course: Similar in appearance to the Ridge Course, the Challenge is not necessarily for beginners despite its short length. The 18-hole, 4,160-yard par-63 track has an equal number of par 3s and par 4s. The 398-yard, par-4 fourth hole can be a challenge even for seasoned golfers.

The juniper-lined course is usually in excellent condition, and it is a good challenge for players with three hours or less to spend on golf. The toughest hole is No. 18, a 225-yard par 3 with a forced carry over water. Number of holes: 18 Status: Open year-round, weather permitting Location: 2575 S.W.

Juniper Golf Course

A true desert-links course, Juniper snakes its way through juniper trees and lava rock across high-desert terrain. The bentgrass greens are hard and fast, and the course can play as long as 7,200 yards. It is a test for golfers of every skill level. The 449-yard, par-4 fifth hole is a gem that features two lava rock outcroppings that jut into the fairway. Number of holes: 18 Status: Open year-round, weather permitting Location: 1938 S.W.

Kah-Nee-Ta Resort

The golf course sits at the bottom of a steeply walled highdesert canyon, and it can give a golfer the feeling of playing in the middle of nowhere. Though not a spectacular design, the course utilizes a straightforward layout and is a fair test for most golfers. No. 17, a 515-yard par 5, brings the Warm Springs River into play and is the course’s most picturesque hole.

Lost Tracks Golf Club

The course is lined with ponderosa pines, and its design is characterized by doglegs, which are present to some degree on every hole except for the four par 3s.

Meadow Lakes Golf Course

The course, which doubles as Prineville’s water treatment facility, is everything a municipal golf course should be: relatively inexpensive, easily accessible, and well-maintained. Water comes into play on nearly every hole in the form of either the Crooked River or the course’s 10 man-made lakes.

Heavily wooded with ponderosa pines, Quail Run does not get the fanfare of the more famous destination golf courses in Central Oregon. But the course is every bit as fun to play as its more-heralded counterparts.

Meadows: The more open of Sunriver Resort’s two daily-fee courses, Meadows meanders through wetlands and some forest, but the trees barely come into play. As a result, the golf course is playable for golfers of most skill levels, even with a multitude of mounded fairway bunkers. The 205-yard, par-3 16th hole frames a stunning view of nearby Mount Bachelor in the background. Woodlands: Lined with ponderosa pines, Woodlands is the tougher of Sunriver Resort’s daily-fee courses. The trees frame and shape the golf course, giving the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed track subtle doglegs rather than hard turns left or right. The 18th hole, a 437yard par 4, brings water on the right of the fairway into play from the tee, and a large tree prevents golfers from taking a shortcut on the dogleg right.

THE COURSES

How much will a round of golf cost you these days? Area golf courses are offering a wide variety of rates based on the time of day and year By Zack Hall The Bulletin

The rate sheets at some Central Oregon golf courses are beginning to read like a stock ticker. It used to be a that golfer could count on one greens fee during most of the day, and a less-expensive twilight rate. Now a quick glance at the cost to golf at several area golf courses reveals prices that seem to change every few hours of the golf day. It’s called “stadium pricing,” whereby courses will charge higher rates for more-desirable tee times and reduced rates during times of less demand. It is not unlike charging more for a ticket on the 50-yard line than for an end-zone seat. And an increasing number of area golf facilities are using the less-expensive afternoon rates as a way to fill their tee sheets. Among the local courses that are promoting afternoon golf with discounted greens fees is Widgi Creek Golf Club in Bend. “The biggest reason we went to it is just to try to find a way to fill some slower times,” says Dan Ostrin, head golf pro at Widgi Creek. “We have such a short season over here, and it is imperative that we don’t have any times left unfilled.” Aspen Lakes Golf Course in Sisters, Black Butte Ranch, Juniper Golf Course in Redmond, Sunriver Resort and Widgi Creek are all planning to offer at least three different rates each day this summer. Widgi Creek, which has used stadium pricing since the start of the economic decline, has been the most aggressive with it of local courses. This season, Widgi plans to offer six different rates daily — prices ranging from $75 for a round played between 8 and 11 a.m. to $25 for a round played after 5:30 p.m. “I’ll be the first to admit, we’ve kind of experimented over the last few years to really kind of figure out what is going to work the best,” Ostrin says. “I think we’re all just kind of trying different things to see what works — not just locally, but nationally as well.” Ostrin is right. Juniper has adopted stadium pricing, ranging from a peak weekend

rate of $65 to a weekday twilight rate that includes a cart for $39. Juniper also is planning to offer a special bargain rate most days during the golf season, either through golfnow.com or its own website, says Bruce Wattenburger, the course’s longtime head pro. Such pricing not only helps fill out the tee sheet each day, it gives local golfers an opportunity to pick their own prices, Wattenburger says.

“I would say the golf industry tends to relate to the economy, and we are not recovered yet,” Wattenburger observes. “And people can’t afford today what they might have been able to afford a year or two or three ago. So they’re in the flux of finding a rate that they can afford and deem to be a good value. “The courses that have been the busiest are the ones that have offered a good value at a good price.” And the lower afternoon or earlybird rates are a way to attract more Central Oregon golfers without alienating out-of-towners by offering a locals-only rate, says Matt Phillips, head professional at Aspen Lakes. “We are trying to keep from upsetting customers,” Phillips says. “Most of our locals are working anyway (during peak times), so let’s create

some aggressive fees before work and after work where we can get our locals out here at a little bit better rate yet not really displace the out-oftown customers. “It’s a way to kind of take care of everybody.” One downside for golfers is that sorting out all those rates can get confusing. Jeff Fought, director of golf at Black Butte Ranch, says it’s important for golf courses to make sure golfers know when the rates change. “You see a little bit of that (confusion),” Fought admits. “But I’ve tried not to make it too complicated for the customer.” Says Phillips: “I think the main thing is just educating (golfers) and making them aware that they do have options.”

TOURNAMENTS

Amateur events are taking center stage in Central Oregon this year By Zack Hall The Bulletin

A tournament that Tiger Woods once won and another that boasts Phil Mickelson as a three-time champion highlight Central Oregon’s 2011 golf schedule. No, major professional golf is not returning to Central Oregon this season. But top-flight amateur golf will be here this year. Crosswater Club will play host in late June to the American Junior Golf Association’s Rolex Tournament of Champions, a tournament that Sunriver Resort’s flagship course hosted in 2004 and includes a list of past champions that features Mickelson. And the Pacific Northwest Golf Association’s Men’s Amateur, a prestigious regional tournament that Woods won in 1994 at Royal Oaks Country Club in Vancouver, Wash., will be played at Bend’s Tetherow Golf Club in July. They might not be The Tradition — a major championship on the 50-andolder Champions Tour whose four-year run at Crosswater ended in 2010 — but both tournaments return championship-level golf to Central Oregon. “It will be the best junior golfers in the world,” says Scott Ellender, director of resort operations at Sunriver Resort, of the Rolex event. “This is the cream of the crop.”

Tournament highlights in 2011 June 7-9 — Pacific Northwest Golf Association’s Senior and Super Senior Men’s Amateurs at Black Butte Ranch’s Big Meadow course June 14-16 — Oregon Open Invitational at Awbrey Glen Golf Club in Bend June 27-July 1 — American Junior Golf Association’s Rolex Tournament of Champions at Crosswater Club, Sunriver July 11-16 — PNGA Men’s Amateur at Tetherow Golf Club in Bend Aug. 15-19 — PNGA Junior Boys’ Amateur at Sunriver Resort’s Meadows course Aug. 29-Sept. 2 — Golf World Pacific Amateur Golf Classic at multiple Central Oregon courses Oct. 1-2 — Oregon Golf Association’s Men’s Team Championship at the Club at Brasada Ranch in Powell Butte Indeed, when the Tournament of Champions was staged at Crosswater in 2004, the winner was Jamie Lovemark. After that victory, Lovemark went on to become a two-time AllAmerican at the University of Southern California. Currently, he is playing

on the PGA Tour. The 2011 tournament, which organizers say is still in need of volunteers to help run the event, is scheduled for 72 holes of stroke play. It is expected to feature golfers from around the world, according to Ellender. “These are the best of the AJGA, so it is a pretty big deal,” Ellender says. The PNGA’s Men’s Amateur is no stranger to future PGA Tour talent itself. Not only did Woods win the event, which each year features the top amateur players from around the Northwest and beyond, but Oregonians and current PGA Tour players Ben Crane (1997) and Jeff Quinney (1998, 2000) are also among the tournament’s recent champions. This year’s field, which is limited to 168 golfers all with a handicap of 4.4 or better, will have to tackle Tetherow. It will mark the first time the tournament has ever been played in Central Oregon. Similar to the U.S. Amateur Championship, the tournament will begin with two rounds of stroke play to cut the field to 64 players. Then six rounds of match play will ensue, finishing with a 36-hole championship match. The PNGA Men’s Amateur will be the first major match-play tournament hosted by Tetherow, which opened in 2008. But Tetherow’s links style is a

perfect fit for such a format, says Caleb Anderson, the course’s head pro. “There is a lot of risk/reward and a lot of different ways to get your ball around this course,” Anderson says. “It just sets up so well for match play. I just can’t wait to see a championship with this level of golfer.” The Men’s Amateur is the second of three PNGA events scheduled for Central Oregon in 2011. In June, Black Butte Ranch’s Big Meadow course will play host to the PNGA Senior and Super Senior Men’s Amateur tournaments. And Sunriver Resort’s Meadows course will play host in August to the PNGA Junior Boys’ Amateur, a tournament that Seattle native and eventual Masters champion Fred Couples won in 1976. Jeff Fought, director of golf at Black Butte Ranch, says hosting PNGA events helps bring prestige to the area’s golf courses. “Being a part of the PNGA is important to us,” Fought says. “It is an association that has all of our (Northwest golf) history with past champions such as Fred Couples.” Adds Fought: “Every club should participate in the history of the PNGA, if they can.” Zack Hall can be reached at 541-6177868 or at zhall@bendbulletin.com.
