Broadband talks advance, not without dispute By Andrew Clevenger The Bulletin


WASHINGTON — A divided House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology approved a draft of the Jumpstarting Opportunity with

Broadband Spectrum Act Thursday, but was unable to reconcile partisan differences over how to best reorganize parts of the broadband spectrum. Rep. Greg Walden, RHood River, who chairs the

subcommittee and drafted the proposed bill, said he wants to get the broadband spectrum legislation done by the end of the year. “Primarily, this legislation is about getting America’s economy go-

ing again,” he said at the beginning of Thursday’s markup hearing, where committee members weighed in on the draft and discussed possible changes. See Broadband / A5



Caution, outdoor folk — fire prevention in progress

Governor pushes university freedom • UO president was fired this week for seeking independence By Lauren Dake The Bulletin

SALEM — Gov. John Kitzhaber moved Thursday to ease state control of Oregon’s universities by pushing for legislation that would allow them to be governed by independent boards. At a meeting of the newly formed Oregon Education Investment Board, he directed board members to craft legislation for the 2013 session that would create the framework for the independent governance structure. The governor’s push for legislation comes the same week the State Board of Higher Educa- Kitzhaber tion fired University of Oregon President Richard Lariviere. The board cited his unwillingness to stop pushing a plan that would have created an independent governance structure for the university. The board terminated Lariviere’s contract and said he was not a team player. Board members said they directed him to stop lobbying lawmakers for UO independence last legislative session, but he disregarded them. Kitzhaber called the board’s firing justified. The governor’s announcement came in the form of a written statement and did not explain how his plan differs from what Lariviere was trying to do. Recommendations for what the independent governing boards under Kitzhaber might look like are due Sept. 15. See Governor / A4

An excavator with a brush grapple picks up a load of tree debris Thursday in the forest just down from Tumalo Falls. Crews working to reduce the risk of wildfire are expected to be in the area for the next few weeks. By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

The area around Tumalo Falls will be busy with activity until the snow flies, part of a largescale fuels reduction project to reduce the risk of wildfire. Todd Reinwald, a soil scientist with the Deschutes National Forest and project liaison for the operation, said activity will be concentrated between the falls and the gate off Skyliners Road, from the creek north to the top of the ridge. While the road from the gate to the falls is not closed to nonmotorized traffic, recreational users are advised to avoid the area or use caution when visiting.

Crews will be treating an estimated 3,500 acres with a variety of methods, including burning underbrush and fallen debris,

and harvesting immature and larger trees. Much of the area targeted for fuels reduction was burned

in the 1979 Bridge Creek Fire, when an abandoned campfire escaped and consumed 4,300 acres of timber. Reinwald said past fires and past fire prevention practices have created a varying landscape around Tumalo Falls, where different fuel reduction approaches are warranted. Some stands of trees planted in areas destroyed by the Bridge Creek Fire have become tightly packed and need thinning after 30 years, while areas closer to the houses along Skyliners Road have become overgrown because of vigilant fire suppression efforts.

SAN ANTONIO — The call came into the behavior specialists here from a doctor in Afghanistan. His patient had just been through a firefight and now was cowering under a cot, refusing to come out. Apparently even the chew toys hadn’t worked. Post-traumatic stress disorder, thought Dr. Walter Burghardt Jr., chief of behavioral medicine at the Daniel Holland Military Working Dog Hospital at Lackland Air Force Base. Specifically, canine PTSD. If anyone needed evidence of the frontline role played by dogs in war these days, here is the latest: The four-legged, wet-nosed troops used to sniff out mines, track down enemy fighters and clear buildings are struggling with the mental strains of combat nearly as much as their human counterparts.

As Wiretappers’ Ball grows, so do the worries By Sari Horwitz, Shyamantha Asokan and Julie Tate The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Technology entrepreneur Jerry Lucas hosted his first trade show for makers of surveillance gear at the Hilton in suburban McLean, Va., in May

few restrictions. This burgeoning trade has alarmed human rights activists, who call for greater regulation because the technology has ended up in the hands of repressive governments such as those of Syria, Iran and China. See Surveillance / A5

Verdict on memory: doubt • The justice system is catching up to scientific evidence that our recollections aren’t very accurate By Laura Beil New York Times News Service

Eyewitness testimony has been the gold standard of the criminal justice system, revered in courtrooms and crime dramas as the evidence that clinches a case. Yet scientists have long cautioned that the brain is not a filing cabinet, storing memories in a way that they can be pulled out, consulted and returned intact. Memory is not so much a record of the past as a rough sketch that can be modified even by the simple act of telling the story. For scientists, memory has been on trial for decades, and courts and public opinion are only now catching up with the verdict. It has come as little surprise to researchers that about 75 percent of DNA-based exonerations have come in cases where witnesses got it wrong. This month, the Supreme Court heard its first oral arguments in more than three decades that question the validity of using eyewitness testimony, a case that involved a New Hampshire man convicted of theft, accused by a woman who saw him from a distance in the dead of night. And in August the New Jersey Supreme Court set new rules to cope with failings in eyewitness accounts. That appeal involved a man picked from a photo lineup, convicted of manslaughter and weapons possession in a 2003 fatal shooting.

habits; they were then asked to write either a letter of recommendation or letter making a case for a replacement. When later asked to repeat the original description, the volunteers’ recollections were skewed by the type of letter they had written. Their minds had shed qualities that didn’t match the first draft of their own recall and had embellished those that did.

The gorilla experiments Few experiments have demonstrated this more notably than one published in 1999 by researchers at Harvard University. Participants watched a video of people dressed in either black or white passing a basketball. The subjects were told to count the number of passes made by players in white. During the test, a woman in a gorilla suit strolled through the players. She was unnoticed by about half the people who took the test, the researchers found. Distraction is not unique to the eyes. During a meeting this month of the Psychonomic Society, Polly Dalton and colleagues at the University of London presented the audio version of the gorilla test, a 69second recording of two men and two women preparing for a party. Hardly any of the study participants instructed to listen to the women heard a third man repeating “I’m a gorilla” for 19 seconds midway through the conversation. The editing of the past occurs without a person realizing what they have forgotten. In court, eyewitnesses are asked

to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. They think they do. Whether telling a story in a courtroom or at a dinner table, the mind is sometimes prone to blur the distinction between reality and fantasy. Brain scans taken as people “recall” something they did not actually see have many similarities to the brain dwelling on an actual memory. “That’s one of the striking findings of the studies,” said Daniel Schacter, a psychology professor at Harvard University. Whether an event is real or imagined, “many structures involved in the coding and retrieving are the same.”

Confidence over accuracy When selective attention combines with fear, “you have a very strong memory for a few details,” said Elizabeth Phelps, a psychology professor at New York University. “Emotion gives us confidence more than it gives us accuracy.” The problem comes when witnesses bring that certainty to the entire memory. In crimes that involve a weapon, Loftus and other scientists have found that witnesses will fixate on the gun barrel or knife blade but will fail to notice other details as clearly. Yet because they so starkly remember particulars of the weapon and may have the accuracy of parts of their memory affirmed by police and prosecutors, witnesses carry an air of assurance into the courtroom. “Many people think if someone is confident, they must be right,” said Loftus.

Trace evidence Rather than the centerpiece of prosecution, eyewitness testimony should be viewed more like trace evidence, scientists say, with the same fragility and vulnerability to contamination. Why is an eyewitness account so often unreliable? Partly because the brain does not have a knack for retaining many specifics and is highly susceptible to suggestion. “Memory is weak in eyewitness situations because it’s overloaded,” said Barbara Tversky, a psychology professor at Columbia University’s Teachers College in New York. “An event happens so fast, and when the police question you, you probably weren’t concentrating on the details they’re asking about.” Hundreds of studies have catalogued a long list of circumstances that can affect how memories are recorded and replayed, including the emotion at the time of the event, the social pressures that taint its reconstruction, even flourishes unknowingly added after the fact. Even the process of police questioning and prepping for trial can crystallize a person’s own faulty reconstruction. In 2000, Tversky published a series of experiments conducted at Stanford University in the journal Cognitive Psychology. In one, volunteers read profiles of fictitious roommates with both charming and annoying

Democrats look to payroll issue, so far an impasse By Jackie Calmes New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — After struggling all year for an economic message that resonates broadly with Americans in hard times, President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats have settled on one they believe can carry through next year’s election as they use a fight over payroll taxes to portray Republicans as defenders of the wealthy at the expense of the middle class. With Obama leading the charge in Washington and political swing states, Senate Democrats have put proudly antitax Republicans in the position of opposing a tax cut for more than 160 million mostly

middle-class Americans because they object that it includes a tax on about 350,000 people, those with more than $1 million in annual taxable income. Votes late Thursday left the issue at an impasse. The Senate voted 51-49 for the Democrats’ measure to further reduce Social Security payroll taxes next year for both workers and employers and to impose the surtax, but the tally was short of the 60 votes needed. One moderate Republican, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, supported it. A GOP alternative, which would have extended the current more modest tax cut and slashed the federal payroll to pay for it, was rejected 78-20, with more than half of Republicans opposed.

The maneuvering suggests that the parties will agree to some continued relief before the payroll tax cut expires Dec. 31. But how much of a cut and how — or if — it will be paid for remain to be settled, with some in both parties asserting that the tax break would further weaken the Social Security system’s financing. But politically, Democrats believe that they have already won this latest skirmish in the message wars. And some Republicans acknowledge that they are losing the exchange; party leaders have worked this week to bring the rank-and-file in line behind the tax cut. Democrats have concluded from the payroll tax debate that

Republicans are vulnerable over their opposition to any new taxes on the wealthy in a way they were not when Democrats proposed such taxes for deficit reduction. So they have reprised an old message — that Democrats fight for the middle class, Republicans for the rich — and are likely to sound it through 2012, in hopes of blunting the headwinds they face as unemployment remains high. “Tonight, Senate Republicans chose to raise taxes on nearly 160 million hard-working Americans because they refused to ask a few hundred thousand millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share,” Obama said in a statement after the first Senate vote.

On World AIDS Day, activists condemn shortfalls By Robyn Dixon Los Angeles Times

JOHANNESBURG — Activists marked World AIDS Day on Thursday with warnings that severe shortfalls in global AIDS funding by donors would cost many lives, particularly in hard-hit southern Africa. After scientific research this year concluded that aggressive treatment of HIV from an early stage with anti-retroviral medications could save lives, the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria announced last week it was canceling funding for new programs until 2014 because it had not received adequate donations. The organization is the biggest fund offering grants to fight the diseases and provides anti-retroviral medication for about half the people in subSaharan Africa taking the drugs. Globally it is providing such medications for 3.2 million people. The global financial crisis and the uncertainty created by the eurozone meltdown are major causes of the shortfall in donations, according to analysts. Corruption in some agencies that received Global Fund grants was another issue, leading the fund to tighten its accountability procedures. Activists said southern Africa, the area with the highest concentration of people living with HIV, would be the hardest hit.

White House proposes help WASHINGTON — President Obama told activists, patients, scientists and business leaders gathered Thursday to mark World AIDS Day that his administration will do more to get life-extending anti-retroviral drugs for those infected with HIV, both in the United States and in low-income countries. The administration will provide an additional $35 million to states to help them buy AIDS drugs for people who can’t afford them and $15 million to clinics that care for those patients, the president said in a speech at George Washington University. About 6,600 low-income HIV-positive people are on drug waiting lists in 12 states. The new money would pay for medication for about 3,000 people. — The Washington Post

U.S. servicemen fold the American flag after it was lowered during the handover ceremony of a military base in Basra, Iraq’s second-largest city. Vice President Joe Biden thanked U.S. and Iraqi troops Thursday for sacrifices that he said made it possible to bring an end to the conflict.

In Iraq, Biden praises troops as attacks remind of reality The Associated Press CAMP VICTORY, Iraq — As Iraqi flags were raised in what was once a giant U.S. military base, Joe Biden joined Iraqi officials in honoring forces who the vice president said made it possible to “end this war.” The American military’s role here is nearing an end, but Iraqis still must contend with the violence that the nearly nine-year conflict unleashed: 20 people were killed in attacks around the country Thursday. Biden’s comments came

during a ceremony at Camp Victory, one of the last American bases that will be handed over to the Iraqi government before U.S. troops leave Iraq this month. The Iraqi government hosted the ceremony as a way to honor the sacrifices of Iraqi and U.S.-led coalition forces. “Because of you and the work that those of you in uniform have done, we are now able to end this war,” Biden told the hundreds of American and Iraqi service members. Speaking under a massive

chandelier in a Saddam-era palace that Biden referred to as a “grotesque monument to a dictator’s greed,” the vice president said the U.S. takes “immense pride” in what the American troops have been able to do in Iraq and that they are leaving with their heads held high. “We owe you. We owe you,” said Biden, whose son has served in Iraq. He praised the Iraqis for the military they have been able to raise from the “ashes of so much turmoil.”

$662B defense bill passes Senate By Donna Cassata The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Ignoring a presidential veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a massive, $662 billion defense bill that would require the military to hold suspected terrorists linked to al-Qaida or its affiliates, even those captured on U.S. soil, and detain some indefinitely. The vote was 93-7 for the bill authorizing money for military personnel, weapons systems, national security programs in the Energy Department, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1. Reflecting a period of austerity and a winding down of decade-old conflicts, the bill is $27 billion less than what President Barack Obama requested and $43 billion less than what Congress gave the Pentagon this year. Shortly before final passage, the Senate unanimously backed crippling sanctions on Iran as fears about Tehran developing a nuclear weapon outweighed concerns about driving up oil prices that would hit economically strapped Americans at the gas pump. The vote was 100-0. “Iran’s actions are unacceptable and pose a danger to the United States and the entire world,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. “Iran supports terrorist groups, arms the killers of American soldiers, lies about its nuclear program, violates its citizens’ basic rights and threatens Israel’s security.” In an escalating fight with the White House, the bill would ramp up the role of the military in handling terror suspects. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and FBI Director Robert Mueller both oppose the provisions as does the White House.

U.S. to relax on aid to Myanmar New York Times News Service YANGON, Myanmar — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday that the United States would loosen some restrictions on international financial assistance and development programs in Myanmar, in response to a nascent political and economic opening in the country. The U.S. and Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, also agreed to discuss upgrading diplomatic relations — which were suspended for two decades — and exchanging ambassadors, a step that could transform U.S. diplomacy in Southeast Asia. Clinton met the country’s new president, U Thein Sein, Thursday morning and its main opposition leader, the Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, later in the day, underscoring the Obama administration’s cautious efforts to nurture a thaw in one of the world’s most isolated and repressive nations. In each meeting, Clinton, the first secretary of state to visit Myanmar since 1955, delivered a letter from President Barack Obama expressing support for the democratization of Myanmar. Thein Sein, a former general and prime minister in the previous military government called Clinton’s visit “a historic milestone” that he hoped would “open a new chapter in relations.”

Continued from A1 The new structure would take effect in the 2012-14 fiscal year for any of the state’s seven universities that choose to have an independent board. “Earlier this year, with the creation of the Oregon Education Investment Board and a package of significant education legislation, the Legislature took the first steps toward a studentcentered education system designed to achieve our state’s education, social and economic objectives,” Kitzhaber said in a statement. “We must build on that progress to deliver results for students at all levels and in all parts of the state.” The governor also directed the board to push forward with developing legislation for the 2012 session that will create performance measures by which school districts are measured. The idea is to financially reward districts that can demonstrate improvement, such as increasing graduation rates. The governor chairs the Oregon Education Investment Board, which is charged with implementing his vision of an integrated, coordinated education system in the state from prekindergarten through postsecondary education.

Continued from A1 By some estimates, more than 5 percent of the approximately 650 military dogs deployed by U.S. combat forces are developing canine PTSD. Of those, about half are likely to be retired from service, Burghardt said. Although veterinarians have long diagnosed behavioral problems in animals, the concept of canine PTSD is only about 18 months old and still being debated. But it has gained vogue among military veterinarians, who have been seeing patterns of troubling behavior among dogs exposed to explosions, gunfire and other combat-related violence in Iraq and Afghanistan. Like humans with the analogous disorder, different dogs show different symptoms. Some become hypervigilant. Others avoid buildings or work areas that they had previously been comfortable in. Some undergo sharp changes in temperament, becoming unusually aggressive with their handlers, or clingy and timid. Most crucially, many stop doing the tasks they were trained to perform. “If the dog is trained to find improvised explosives and it looks like it’s working, but isn’t, it’s not just the dog that’s at risk,” Burghardt said. “This is a human health issue as well.”

“It’s a short-lived thing for right now; we understand it disrupts some of the recreation.” — Todd Reinwald, Deschutes National Forest

Wildfire Continued from A1 The multiyear project will cost the Deschutes National Forest approximately $600,000, with the funds coming as a grant from Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program. Crews are expected to be working along Tumalo Falls Road for the next few weeks, but should be gone by the time snowshoers and cross-country skiers begin flocking to the area. “It’s a short-lived thing for right now; we understand it disrupts some of the recreation, but once the snow gets two feet deep or so, we’ll be done for the season,” Reinwald said. Reinwald said crews hope to gather the fallen debris and thinned trees too small to be milled for timber into a single location before wrapping up their work for the season. In the spring, crews will return to grind the smaller materials into wood chips. Due to the area’s proximity to Bend and the neighborhood along Skyliners Road, the Forest Service intends to grind and remove most of the debris as burning it could create air quality problems. Most of the debris and the associated fire danger should be removed from the area by the beginning of the fire season, Reinwald said, though some limited work is anticipated in the area late next year. − Reporter: 541-383-0387,

Bigger part of the fight That the military is taking a serious interest in canine PTSD underscores the importance of working dogs in the current wars. Once used primarily as furry sentries, military dogs — most are German shepherds, followed by Belgian Malinois and Labrador retrievers — have branched out into an array of specialized tasks. They are widely considered the most effective tools for detecting the improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, frequently used in Afghanistan. Typically made from fertilizer and chemicals, and containing little or no metal, those buried bombs can be nearly impossible to find with standard mine-sweeping instruments. In the past three years, IEDs have become the major cause of casualties in Afghanistan. The Marine Corps also has begun using specially trained dogs to track Taliban fighters and bombmakers. And Special Operations commandos train their own dogs to accompany elite teams on secret

missions — like the Navy SEAL raid that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. Across all the forces, more than 50 military dogs have been killed since 2005. The number of working dogs on active duty has risen to 2,700, from 1,800 in 2001, and the training school headquartered at Lackland has gotten busy, preparing about 500 dogs a year. So has the Holland hospital, the Pentagon’s canine version of Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Burghardt, a lanky 59-year-old who retired last year from the Air Force as a colonel, rarely sees his PTSD patients in the flesh. Consultations with veterinarians in the field are generally done by phone, email or Skype, and often involve video documentation. In a series of videos that Burghardt uses to train veterinarians to spot canine PTSD, one shepherd barks wildly at the sound of gunfire that it had once tolerated in silence. Another can be seen confidently inspecting the interior of cars but then refusing to go inside a bus or a building. Another sits listlessly on a barrier wall, then after finally responding to its handler’s summons, runs away from a group of Afghan soldiers. In each case, Burghardt theorizes, the dogs were using an object, vehicle or person as a “cue” for some violence they had witnessed. “If you want to put doggy thoughts into their heads,” he said,

“the dog is thinking: When I see this kind of individual, things go boom, and I’m distressed.”

Tough to treat Treatment can be tricky. Since the patient cannot explain what is wrong, veterinarians and handlers must make educated guesses about the traumatizing events. Care can be as simple as taking a dog off patrol and giving it lots of exercise, playtime and gentle obedience training. More serious cases will receive what Burghardt calls “desensitization counterconditioning,” which entails exposing the dog at a safe distance to a sight or sound that might set off a reaction — a gunshot, a loud bang or a vehicle, for instance. If the dog does not react, it is rewarded, and the trigger — “the spider in a glass box,” Burghardt calls it — is moved progressively closer. Gina, a shepherd with PTSD who was the subject of news articles last year, was successfully treated with desensitization and has been cleared to deploy again, said Tech Sgt. Amanda Callahan, a spokeswoman at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado. Some dogs are also treated with the same medications used to fight panic attacks in humans. Burghardt asserts that medications seem particularly effective when administered soon after traumatizing events. The Labra-

dor retriever that cowered under a cot after a firefight, for instance, was given Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug, and within days was working well again. Dogs that do not recover quickly are returned to their home bases for longer-term treatment. But if they continue to show symptoms after three months, they are usually retired or transferred to different duties, Burghardt said. As with humans, there is much debate about treatment, with little research yet to guide veterinarians. Lee Charles Kelley, a dog trainer who writes a blog for Psychology Today called “My Puppy, My Self,” says medications should be used only as a stopgap. “We don’t even know how they work in people,” he said. In the civilian dog world, a growing number of animal behaviorists seem to be endorsing the concept of canine PTSD, saying it also affects household pets who experience car accidents and even less traumatic events. Dr. Nicholas Dodman, director of the animal behavior clinic at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tuft University, said he had written about and treated dogs with PTSD-like symptoms for years — but did not call it PTSD until recently. Asked if the disorder could be cured, Dodman said probably not. “It is more management,” he said. “Dogs never forget.”


Surveillance Continued from A1 “You need two things for a dictatorship to survive: propaganda and secret police,” said Rep. Christopher Smith, RN.J., who has proposed bills to restrict the sale of surveillance technology overseas. “Both of those are enabled in a huge way by the high-tech companies involved.” But the overwhelming U.S. government response has been to engage in the event — not as a potential regulator but as a customer. The list of attendees for this year’s U.S. Wiretappers’ Ball, held in October at the North Bethesda (Md.) Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, included more than 35 federal agencies, said Lucas. The list, he added, included the FBI, the Secret Service and every branch of the military, along with the IRS, the Agriculture Department and the Fish and Wildlife Service. None would comment on their participation. Representatives of 43 countries also were there, Lucas said, as were many people from state and local law enforcement agencies. Journalists and members of the public were excluded. On offer were products that allow users to track hundreds of cellphones at once, read emails by the tens of thousands, even get a computer to snap a picture of its owner and send the image to police or anyone else who buys the software. One product uses phony updates for iTunes and other popular programs to infiltrate personal computers. The Commerce Department regulates exports of surveillance technology, but its ability to restrict the trade is limited. Intermediaries sometimes redirect sales to foreign governments, even those subjected to economic sanctions, once products leave the United States. The State Department, which has spent $70 million in recent years to promote Internet freedom abroad, has expressed rising alarm over such transactions but has no enforcement authority. U.S. law generally requires law enforcement agencies to obtain court orders when intercepting domestic Internet or phone communications. But such restrictions do not follow products when they are sold overseas. Industry officials say their products are designed for legitimate purposes such as tracking terrorists, investigating crimes and allowing employers to block pornographic and other restricted websites at their offices. “This technology is abso-

Broadband Continued from A1 “It is a bill that frees up vast swaths of valuable spectrum, both licensed and unlicensed, that when put into service will unleash new technologies. It will spur innovation,” Walden said. The proposed legislation would reallocate part of the broadband spectrum known as the D Block for exclusive use by public safety on local, state and national levels. In the wake of emergency communication failures during the 9/11 attacks, the 9/11 Commission called for the creation of an interoperable public safety broadband network, but this has not yet happened. The draft also calls for moving television broadcasts to a different part of the electromagnetic spectrum, freeing up additional swaths of spectrum that could then be auctioned off to the rapidly expanding wireless broadband market. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that these spectrum auctions could bring in as much as $15 billion. Under Walden’s plan, some of this money would be used to compensate television broadcasters for the costs of relocating, and some would go toward funding the public safety network. Generally, these ideas have bipartisan support throughout the committee, although Republicans and Democrats differ slightly on funding amounts. Where the two sides really disagree is over the amount and allotment of unlicensed spectrum, space that has not been assigned to a specific user. This unlicensed spectrum, or white space, is typically used by a variety of different devices and commercial

lutely vital for civilization,” said Lucas, president of TeleStrategies, which hosts the events, officially called Intelligent Support Systems World Conferences. “You can’t have a situation where bad guys can communicate and you bar interception.”

‘Like selling guns’ But the surveillance products themselves make no distinction between bad guys and good guys, only users and targets. Several years of industry sales brochures provided to The Washington Post by the antisecrecy group WikiLeaks, and released publicly Thursday, reveal that many companies are selling sophisticated tools capable of going far beyond conventional investigative techniques. “People are morally outraged by the traditional arms trade, but they don’t realize that the sale of software and equipment that allows oppressive regimes to monitor the movements, communications and Internet activity of entire populations is just as dangerous,” said Eric King of Privacy International, a London-based group that seeks to limit government surveillance. Sophisticated surveillance technology “is facilitating detention, torture and execution,” he said, “and potentially smothering the flames of another Arab Spring.” Demand for surveillance tools surged after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks as rising security concerns coincided with the spread of cellphones, Skype, social media and other technologies that made it easier for people to communicate, and easier for governments and companies to eavesdrop on a mass scale. The surveillance industry conferences are in Prague, Czech Republic; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Brasilia, Brazil; the Washington area; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, whose event starts Tuesday. They are invitation-only affairs, and Lucas said he bars Syria, Iran and North Korea, which are under sanctions. The most popular conference, with about 1,300 attendees, was in Dubai this year. Middle Eastern governments, for whom the Arab Spring was “a wake-up call,” are the most avid buyers of surveillance software and equipment, Lucas said. Any customers attending are free to buy products there.

uses, such as Wi-Fi networks, cordless telephones, garage door openers and baby monitors. Under Walden’s plan, none of the space freed up by relocating television broadcasters would be set aside for unlicensed use. Walden maintained that would be using taxpayer money to pay broadcasters to move, only to give part of the newly vacated spectrum away for free. Anna Eshoo, the ranking member on the subcommittee, whose district in California includes Silicon Valley, said that unlicensed spectrum is crucial to innovation. “Closing spectrum bands to future innovation is foolhardy,” she said. Currently, devices operating in unlicensed parts of the broadband spectrum contribute between $16 billion and $37 billion to the U.S. economy, she said. An amendment co-sponsored by Eshoo and Henry Waxman, D-Calif., that would have allowed for more unlicensed space was voted down by a tally of 16-8 along party lines. After the hearing, Walden said he would continue to discuss possible improvements to the bill with Democrats, as he had over the past year with Eshoo and her staff. “We have a fundamental difference on should you clear spectrum, and then make it available for free,” he said. “That’s the part we have trouble swallowing, because the country’s deeply in debt, we need the revenue, both to do the public safety buildout and to pay down debt and create jobs.” Walden said he expects the full Energy and Commerce Committee to hold a hearing on the bill next week. — Reporter: 202-662-7456,

“When you’re selling to a government, you lose control of what the government is going to do with it,” Lucas said. “It’s like selling guns to people. Some are going to defend themselves. Some are going to commit crimes.” The suppliers are global as well. About 15 of the vendors for the conference in Bethesda were based in the United States, said Lucas. Others were from Germany, Italy, Israel, South Africa and Britain; many of these also have U.S. offices targeting the market for law enforcement agencies and other government buyers. Of the 51 companies whose sales brochures and other materials were obtained and released by WikiLeaks, 17 have secured U.S. government contracts in the past five years for agencies such as the FBI, the State Department and the National Security Agency, according to a Washington Post analysis of federal procurement documents. Federal agencies declined to comment on the use of surveillance technology. But Lucas said that the Fish and Wildlife Service uses monitoring gear to catch poachers, the Agriculture Department to investigate abuse of grants and the IRS to search for evidence that tax filers have understated their income. Privacy experts say the legal framework governing the industry has not kept up with its growth, and products sold for legitimate purposes, such as blocking access to certain websites or investigating sexual predators, can easily be adapted for broader surveillance purposes. The brochures collected by WikiLeaks make clear that few forms of electronic communication are beyond the reach of available surveillance tools. Although some simple products cost just a few hundred dollars and can be purchased on eBay, the technology sold at the trade

shows often costs hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. Customization and on-site training can provide years of revenue for companies. One German company, DigiTask, offers a suitcase-sized device capable of monitoring the Web traffic of users at public Wi-Fi hotspots such as cafes, airports and hotel lobbies. A lawyer representing the company, Winfried Seibert, declined to elaborate on its products. “They won’t answer questions about what is offered,” he said. “That’s a secret. That’s a secret between the company and the customer.” Another German company, Elaman, advertises in its government security brochure the capacity to “identify an individual’s location, their associates and members of a group, such as political opponents.” One British company, Cobham, creates bogus cell towers that lets users track phones up to three miles away and listen to some calls, according to its sales brochure. A company spokesman confirmed that it provided cellular tracking devices for “bona fide law enforcement agencies worldwide.” The FinFisher program, which creates fake updates for iTunes, Adobe Acrobat and other programs, was produced by a British company, Gamma International. The Wall Street Journal reported on this product, and several other surveillance tools described in sales brochures, in an article last month. Apple said it altered iTunes to block FinFisher intrusions Nov. 14. A Gamma spokesman, Peter Lloyd, said that FinFisher is a vital investigative tool for law enforcement agencies and that the company complies with British law. “Gamma does not approve or encourage any misuse of its products and is not aware of any such misuse,” he said. The WikiLeaks documents, which the group also provided to several European news organizations and one in India, do not reveal the names of buyers. But when “Arab Spring” revolutionaries took control of state security agencies in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, they found that Western surveillance technology had been used to monitor political activists.

Great Neck North High School is home to some of the students involved in the SAT scandal in Great Neck, N.Y.

On Long Island, exam cheating hardly a secret By Jenny Anderson and Peter Appleome New York Times News Service

GREAT NECK, N.Y. — The test takers came from prominent, respected families, some of them in financial distress — among the five facing felony charges were the sons of a well-known lawyer, the president of the local library board and a wealthy philanthropic family. The youths who are accused of paying them as much as $3,600 to take SAT and ACT tests, for the most part, were undistinguished students willing to cut corners to beef up their modest résumés. The combination yielded one of the most conspicuous cheating scandals in memory, a telling reflection on the college admissions rat race — and, perhaps, contemporary ethics more broadly. According to prosecutors, principals, parents and teenagers here on Long Island’s Gold Coast, it was common knowledge at some of the nation’s most prestigious high schools that if you had the cash and the inclination, you could find someone with a sharper vocabulary and a surer grasp of geometry to fill in the blanks for you.

One 2011 graduate of Great Neck North, the center of the scandal, matter-of-factly acknowledged having asked his parents whether they would pay to hire an SAT stand-in. “They said, ‘No way,’ ” he recalled one recent afternoon. People briefed on the investigation said that Samuel Eshaghoff, a 2010 Great Neck North graduate, scored in the 2100 range (out of 2400) on his own SATs; he is accused of taking tests for at least 15 people over three years, and the people briefed on the inquiry said he obtained scores for them between 2170 and 2220 on the SAT and as high as 33 out of 36 on the ACT. He was proficient at making fake identification cards, they said, and allowed clients to pay in installments and based on what they could afford. So far, 20 teenagers at five schools in Nassau County — Great Neck North, Great Neck South, Roslyn High School, the North Shore Hebrew Academy and St. Mary’s High School in Manhasset — have been arrested: The five suspected of taking the tests were charged with felonies, while the 15 accused of paying them $500 to $3,600 to do so face misdemeanor charges.

SEOUL, South Korea — The United States needs more time to decide on possible aid for North Korea because it is not sure humanitarian assistance would reach the people in need, the top U.S. aid official said Thursday. Rajiv Shah, the head of the

The Communists, the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party and Just Russia say their candidates and activists have been beaten and arrested, while authorities have seized campaign materials and distributed false literature.

United States Agency for International Development, made the comment amid growing appeals from U.S. and United Nations relief agencies, which have recently called for urgent aid for the most vulnerable of the North Korean population, especially its children.

Residents here now shrug them off. “If you have a lot of money, you can do anything,” Blanca Samaniego, 36, said as she walked by the warehouse where Mexican officials unveiled the tunnel Wednesday. “It will never change. It will never stop.” The ground beneath her neighborhood in the hills — near the airport and the upgraded, shimmering border fence patrolled 24/7 by U.S. agents — has been punched full of holes for years.



TIJUANA, Mexico — Squatting and sweating inside the latest drug tunnel found here in this Pacific border city, it was easy to understand the amazement expressed by Mexican and U.S. officials. This one was a stunner. The tunnel ran for almost half a mile, with wooden planks holding off the earth on all sides. Energy-saving light bulbs illuminated the route. A motorized sled on metal rails ensured quick passage, while a steel el-

evator hidden beneath the floor tiles in a warehouse made the 40-foot descent to the tunnel’s entrance feel like the slow drop into an unregulated mine shaft. And yet, here is the simple fact obscured by superlatives like “the most elaborate” and “the most sophisticated,” which officials seem to lather on each new find. Tunnels are Tijuana. They have become an inevitable, always-under-construction or always-operating part of city life, as entrenched as cheap pharmacies and strip clubs.

IN BRIEF Advanced Energy cuts workers Advanced Energy Industries Inc., formerly PV Powered, announced layoffs Thursday at its solar inverter plant in Bend. Danny Herron, chief financial officer of the Fort Collins, Colo.-based company, declined to say how many Bend jobs were eliminated. Cuts were made in engineering, management and production areas, he said. As of March, the company employed 120 people, according to Economic Development for Central Oregon’s 2011 Central Oregon Profile. Herron said the Bend job cuts are part of a companywide effort to reduce employees. Advanced Energy has facilities across the United States and in Canada, South Korea and China. The goal, Herron said, is to “try to structure our business to where it becomes profitable.” Advanced Energy bought PV Powered last year for $90.3 million.

Oregon ranchers convene in Bend By Rachael Rees The Bulletin

Ranchers from across the state gathered in Bend on Thursday for their annual convention to learn the latest about their industry and discuss some of the issues facing it. The three-day Oregon Cattlemen’s Association’s Annual Convention and Trade Show at The Riverhouse Convention Center is geared toward cattle production and helping producers be more economically sustainable, said Kay Teisl, the association’s executive director.

“It’s our annual main membership meeting,” she said. “It provides education for producers and allows us to get input on the direction of our organization and where (ranchers) want to see us go in the coming months.” Teisl said about 300 people signed up for the event, which offers presentations on topics ranging from educating the general public about beef, to cattle production management. “Management of cash flow, not just animals, is vital to ranching operations,” she said.

The impact of environmental policies on ranchers will be one of the key topics at the event. Teisl said ranchers are concerned that policy revisions, such as one made earlier this year on water quality standards, aren’t supported by enough scientific data to justify the changes they require ranchers to make. The state Department of Environmental Quality revised regulations covering water quality standards to reduce exposure to toxic pollutants from drinking water and eating fish. See Cattlemen / B5

Regulators mull new rules Federal regulators are considering a flurry of new rules for the brokerage industry after MF Global’s collapse and the revelation that customer money is missing from the firm, top officials told Congress on Thursday. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission will vote next week on a rule that would restrict the industry’s use of customer money, and the Securities and Exchange Commission could soon enforce new accounting disclosures for brokerage firms. MF Global’s bankruptcy has also renewed calls for federal regulators to more closely monitor brokerage firms rather than continue to outsource oversight duties to for-profit exchanges like the CME Group. Such self-regulatory organizations are “the front line” of oversight, Gary Gensler, chairman of the trading commission, told the Senate Agriculture Committee, which is examining MF Global’s downfall. — Staff and wire reports

Retailers post solid gains in November By Shan Li

Job losses for many; good new jobs for few • Most who lost jobs after the financial crisis have yet to regain their financial footing By Motoko Rich New York Times News Service

People across the working spectrum suffered job losses in recent years: bricklayers and bookkeepers as well as workers in manufacturing and marketing. But only a select few workers have fully regained their footing during the agonizingly slow recovery. Katie O’Brien Mowery is one of the lucky ones. After losing her job in the marketing department of a luxury resort in Santa Barbara, Calif., in early 2010, she eventually found another position with better benefits and the promise of a

brighter future. “I wished that it happened sooner than it did,” said Mowery, who is in her mid30s, referring to her nearly yearlong job search. “But looking back, my new position wouldn’t have been available when I was laid off, and now I’m very happy.” Even though the Labor Department is expected to report today that employers added more than 100,000 jobs in November, a new study shows just how rare people like Mowery are. According to the study, to be released today by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers, just 7 percent of those

who lost jobs after the financial crisis have returned to or exceeded their previous financial position and maintained their lifestyles. The vast majority say they have diminished lifestyles, and about 15 percent say the reduction in their incomes has been drastic and will probably be permanent. Bill Loftis is one of the unfortunate ones. He is without a college degree or specialized skills and also worked in an industry, manufacturing, that has added back only about 13 percent of the jobs that it lost during the recession.

LOS ANGELES — Deep discounts, promotions and early store openings during the Black Friday weekend got national retailers off to a solid start in their crucial holiday season. Sales at major chain stores posted a 3.1 percent gain in November compared with the same month last year, according to a Thomson Reuters’ tally of 21 large retailers released Thursday. The results met Wall Street expectations and were bolstered by record numbers of people out buying on the days after Thanksgiving. “Generally speaking, it was a pretty good month,” said Ken Perkins of research firm Retail Metrics Inc. “Black Friday was very good, and the rest of the month was more ho-hum.” See Retail / B5


IPad still king of the tablets, but competition is growing By Hayley Tsukayama The Washington Post

If 2010 was the year of iPad, then 2011 was the year of the tablet. When Apple introduced the iPad in April 2010, it convinced consumers that they wanted, even needed, tablets as competitors scrambled to come up with their own versions of the “magical” device. Running its own software, iOS, on its own hardware, Apple quickly solidified its place at the top of the market. Fast-forward a year and another generation of the iPad. Apple is still king of the tablet world with 68 percent of the market, according to research firm IDC, but it faces a growing number of increasingly credible competitors.

Android tablets have emerged in all sizes, niches and price points. Competitors are seizing opportunities to target customers who don’t fit the one size Apple is offering. In some ways, it’s parallel to what happened in the smartphone world. Apple’s iPhone popularized the idea of the smartphone from its

2007 introduction, but smartphones running Google’s Android system have taken off since then. Android phones make up more than half of the world’s smartphone market, thanks in part to niche targeting and manufacturers’ efforts to go after lower price points.

China’s manufacturing sector shrinks By Bettina Wassener New York Times News Service

HONG KONG — The Chinese manufacturing sector contracted in November, according to a closely watched barometer, indicating that a key engine of global growth is getting dragged down by the economic woes of Europe and the United States and by the Chinese authorities’ moves to cool inflation. An index measuring activity in the manufacturing sector, released by the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing on Thursday, slumped to 49 in

November, much more than economists had expected. The reading, below the 50 mark that separates expansion from contraction, marked a significant fall from the previous month’s reading of 50.4. A separate purchasing managers’ index released by HSBC on Thursday painted a similar picture. That index fell to 47.7, from 51 in October. A large part of the slowdown has been the result of Beijing’s efforts to combat the inflationary pressures that have accompanied the rapid pace of growth seen during 2010 and 2011.

On Wednesday, the authorities reversed some of that tightening, by loosening the reins on bank lending for the first time in nearly three years. The rise in the reserve requirement ratio for banks effectively allows financial institutions to extend more credit, helping prop up flagging growth. “The message is clear: The economy is slowing much faster than expected and the government has stepped into the ring,� Alistair Thornton, China economist at IHS Global Insight in Beijing, said in a note Thursday.

AT&T fires back at FCC on report it calls one-sided By Jim Puzzanghera Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON — AT&T Inc. blasted the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday for a report criticizing the company’s proposed $39 billion purchase of T-Mobile USA Inc., saying the agency’s findings were one-sided. In a lengthy, detailed rebuttal on the company’s public policy blog, a top AT&T executive accused the FCC staff — and by implication, agency Chairman Julius Genachowski — of being predisposed to reject the deal and of publicly releasing the report this week to advocate for such an outcome. The fiery post indicates AT&T is not going to give up on acquiring T-Mobile without a fight. If the deal fails to gain regulatory approval — a long shot at this point — AT&T would owe T-Mobile a breakup package worth $4 billion. “The report cherry-picks facts to support its views and ignores facts that don’t,� wrote Jim Cicconi, AT&T’s senior executive vice president of external and legislative affairs. “Where facts were lacking, the report speculates with no basis and then treats its own speculations as if they were fact.� “This is clearly not the fair and objective analysis to which any party is entitled and which we have every right to expect,� he said. AT&T is still running advertisements in Washington touting the benefits of


its purchase of T-Mobile even as the deal has slammed into major regulatory roadblocks. In August, the Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit to stop the deal. And last week, Genachowski signaled his opposition by moving to seek a hearing and review by an administrative law judge. AT&T and T-Mobile’s parent company, Deutsche Telekom AG of Germany, said last week they would request permission to withdraw their application for FCC approval so they could focus on the Justice Department suit, which is set to go to trial in February. The FCC granted the withdrawal request on Tuesday. But at the same time, the agency took the unusual step of releasing a 157-page staff report that says the deal would not be in the public interest. One opponent of the transaction called the report an “evisceration� of the companies’ arguments for regulatory approval.

A N Time to say Chilly November? Not for U.S. car sales goodbye to models getting axed By Sam Smith New York Times News Service

The turn of the automotive model year usually brings a host of discontinued cars, and this go-round is no exception. As 2011 winds down, some 17 models have gotten the ax, from market weaklings to long-running strong sellers. Here are some of the dearly departed: • BMW ActiveHybrid X6 — Two years after its debut, this slow-selling, expensive hybrid ($89,775) withdraws from the U.S. market, though overseas sales will continue. What we lose: Another iteration of the clever twomode hybrid system jointly developed by BMW, DaimlerChrysler and General Motors. • Buick Lucerne — As Buick chases younger buyers, this retiree-friendly sedan, first offered as a 2006 model, dies for the cause. What we lose: An old-GM relic only slightly more exciting than stale milk. • Cadillac DTS and STS — Like Buick, Cadillac yearns for younger customers. The similarly styled STS and DTS, though mechanically different — the DTS is driven by its front wheels, the STS from the rear — speak to the same aging demographic. What we lose: Two classic Caddies, in exchange for the appealing 2013 XTS sedan. • Chevrolet HHR — The compact retro wagon arrived as a 2006 model after Chrysler’s PT Cruiser became an overnight sensation. What we lose: A fine-driving car that never achieved the cult status of its rival. • Dodge Dakota and Ford Ranger — Ford’s ancient but successful compact pickup (despite its decades-old frame, it outsold the Taurus in September) perishes because it cannot meet coming government standards without expensive updates. The second generation of the slightly larger Dodge truck simply never caught on in the market. What we lose: Two smaller haulers with big hearts. • Ford Crown Victoria — The ubiquitous taxicab and cop car is the last of the old-school body-on-frame American sedans. Long a fleet favorite, the Ford’s solid construction and thirsty V-8 made it a remarkably durable — if outdated and inefficient — icon. What we lose: One of America’s most charming workhorses. • Honda Element — The distinctive Element was supposed to sway buyers from cookie-cutter SUVs. But with disappointing mileage and few updates, sales peaked early. What we lose: A style statement that said little. • Lotus Elise — This flyweight (2,000 pound) sports car was the best-selling Lotus yet, but no good thing lasts forever. The Elise’s Toyota-supplied engine is being discontinued. What we lose: A focused gem of a sports car. • Mazda RX-8 — The sharphandling RX-8 has been, of late, the only car on the market with a rotary engine. But its high fuel and oil consumption contributed to slow sales. What we lose: A balanced, distinctive sports car that defied labels. • Mazda Tribute — The aging crossover, essentially a 2008-11 Ford Escape in Mazda drag, is giving way to the 2013 Mazda CX-5. What we lose: An uninspiring rebadge of an uninspiring vehicle. • Mitsubishi Eclipse and Endeavor — Mitsubishi says it is shifting its focus to smaller, more efficient vehicles, making the Eclipse, whose sales have sagged of late, and the midsize Endeavor utility wagon irrelevant. What we lose: A dated street-racer favorite and an unprepossessing crossover.

By Tom Krisher and Dee-Ann Durbin The Associated Press

DETROIT — People are finally replacing the cars and trucks they held on to during the economic slump, giving a big boost to U.S. auto sales in November. Chrysler, Ford, Nissan and Hyundai were among the companies reporting double-digit gains from last November, which is normally a lackluster month because of colder weather and holiday distractions. This November, buyers were lured by good deals, improving confidence in the economy and the need to trade in older cars. “Consumers are just starting to say, ‘It’s time to start spending money again,’ ” says Larry Dominique, executive vice president of data for the automotive website. An early blitz of holiday advertising helped convince some people that it was a good time to buy. Ken Czubay, Ford’s vice president for U.S. sales, says dealers saw the same rise in sales that other merchants did on Black Friday and the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Industry sales rose 14 percent to 994,721, according to Autodata Corp. It was also the fastest sales pace since August 2009, when the government offered big rebates for drivers to trade in their gas-guzzling clunkers. U.S. sales would hit 13.6 million this year if they stayed at the same pace they did in November. That’s a far better rate than the 12.6 million in the first 10 months of this year.

Pent-up demand Car companies expected sales to improve as people who held on to cars during the economic downturn return to the market. The average age of a car on U.S. roads is a record 10.6 years, according to Polk, an auto industry research firm. And the rate of cars that are scrapped has surpassed sales for several

2011 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty pickups move through the assembly line at a plant in Flint, Mich. GM reported strong sales of small cars as well as pickups.

years. Paul Ballew, a former GM chief economist who now works for Nationwide Insurance, notes the level of pentup demand is unprecedented. “Unless this recovery is derailed, vehicle sales will continue to move upward,” he says. A better selection of cars at Toyota showrooms also brought more shoppers back into the market. Many buyers spent the summer waiting for those inventories to improve after the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan squeezed supplies, says economist Jenny Lin, who works for Ford Motor Co. Toyota Motor Corp.’s sales rose 7 percent for the month, the first time the company has seen a year-over-year increase since April. Sales of the subcompact Yaris more than doubled. Sales of the Prius hybrids — which now include the original car as well as the new Prius V wagon — were also strong. But Honda Motor Co. continued to struggle, partly because of flooding in Thailand that forced the company to slow down U.S. production. Honda sales fell 10 percent

for the month. Chrysler Group LLC’s sales rose 45 percent from a year earlier. They were led by the Jeep Compass small SUV, which had a nearly tenfold increase in sales. Jeep brand sales rose 50 percent, while Chrysler brand sales nearly doubled on strong demand for its 200 and 300 sedans. Chrysler raised its incentives to nearly $3,300 per vehicle, up 6 percent from October. At General Motors Co., buyers snapped up small cars and pickup trucks. Sales of the Chevrolet Cruze compact rose 64 percent, while the Silverado pickup, GM’s top-selling vehicle, saw sales jump 34 percent. “We are seeing a broad spectrum of customers return to the market,” says Don Johnson, GM’s U.S. sales chief. GM’s overall sales were up 7 percent. Ford’s sales rose 13 percent, fueled by the new Explorer SUV, whose sales more than tripled over last November.

Better deals and attitudes The increases reflect improving consumer confidence, which rose to its highest level since July last month, according to the Conference Board.

Attractive leases also spurred sales. Dealers offered good terms because low interest rates and high used-car values make leased vehicles worth more when they’re returned. GM, for instance, is offering a Cruze lease at $169 per month for 39 months. According to, an auto pricing site, the average industry spending on incentives such as leases and low-interest loans was $2,534 per vehicle in November, up

2.5 percent from October. Jeremy Anwyl, CEO of the auto information site, estimates that 200,000 to 300,000 buyers who held off purchases over the summer and are coming back to the market now. But he thinks sales could soften this spring once those buyers are exhausted. “I wouldn’t view this as suggestive of a fundamental economic rebound,” Anwyl says. Instead, he expects the recovery to continue the bumpy progress it has seen all year. Other carmakers reporting Thursday: • Nissan Motor Co. says sales were up 19 percent. The new Versa small car led sales with a 38 percent increase, but SUV and truck sales also rose 32 percent. • Hyundai Motor Co. says sales rose 22 percent thanks to sales of the new Elantra, which jumped 44 percent. • Volkswagen AG says sales were up 41 percent on the strength of the new Jetta and Passat sedans. Volkswagen sold 6,018 Passats in November, compared with 374 last November.

Cattlemen Continued from B1 The DEQ worked with state agriculture officials and representatives from the Cattlemen’s Association and other industry groups. DEQ documents say the revisions, which received federal approval in October, will not generally affect those farmers who currently meet environmental standards. Teisl said the new water standards are forcing ranchers to make changes in their management practices, without proving they will have an impact on water quality. Helen Moore, executive director of Water for Life, a Wilsonville-based nonprofit that seeks to protect agricultural water rights, said there are also efforts to restrict agricultural uses of water. “There’s the perception that agriculture wastes water because it uses a lot, but the water that (ranchers) use goes back into the stream through the process of return flow,” she said. Sharon Beck, 74, of La Grande, said she thinks environmental policies have made it more difficult for people in the natural resource industry. For the economy as a whole

Retail Continued from B1 Analysts are now focused on December, the second half of the make-or-break season when retailers often rake in 25 to 40 percent of their annual sales. A good holiday season could speed up the nation’s tepid recovery because consumer spending accounts for nearly 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. At stores festooned with lights, wreaths and workers in Santa hats, many consumers said they were planning to splurge a little on friends and families — as long as there were good bargains to be had. Jaime Garcia, 27, was browsing for toys for his two sons Wednesday at Santa Monica Place mall in Santa Monica, Calif., accompanied by his girlfriend, Rochelle Rodriguez, 23. After landing a stable cafeteria

the wolves ourselves,” she said. “We just have to sustain the damage.” John O’Keeffe, a cattle producer from Adel, east of Lakeview, said the beef industry has many positive attributes, but some people have misconceptions about it. O’Keeffe said the Cattlemen’s Association speaks for the cattle industry. The convention, he said, gives people in the industry an opportunity to discuss the issues and helps the association determine its positions going forward. O’Keeffe said ranchers need to ensure family ranching can continue. “(Environmental groups) want everything to be a natural playground for wildlife, like it is all a national park,” he said. Ranching isn’t ruining all of the natural resources in the West, he said. While the ranching industry could be more environmentally friendly, O’Keeffe said, overall it is a sustainable industry. “Family ranches are a good industry feeding a growing population,” he said. “We’re bringing high-quality protein off land that can’t be farmed.”

Daren Williams, executive director of communications for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, talks to ranchers Thursday at the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association convention in Bend about the need for members to educate the public on beef’s nutritional value. Rachael Rees The Bulletin

to improve, Beck said, she believes natural resources need to be opened up and restrictions and regulations need to be eliminated. “Every time a regulation is put on us it costs us more money to operate,” said Beck, a past president of the Cattlemen’s Association. “There are rules that prevent us from doing things the way we want to do them. It’s managing our

lives as if we weren’t able to manage our own.” One big issue Beck cited is the reintroduction of wolves, which have migrated into Oregon and killed livestock, she said. The association is raffling off a 9 mm carbine to pay for potential legal fees associated with wolf reintroduction. “We’re trying to raise money so we can be protected because we’re not allowed to kill

job at the University of California-Santa Barbara two months ago, Garcia said he planned to increase his holiday spending by a few hundred dollars over last year. “I’m just feeling better about where I am this year, and I’m feeling good about keeping this job,” Garcia said, giving Rodriguez a squeeze. “This is also our first Christmas together, so there are more people to buy for.” Top performers reflected a mix of expensive and discount stores. Costco Wholesale Corp. said sales rose 9 percent as penny-pinching consumers continued to shop for discounts. Some luxury retailers also posted healthy sales, with Saks Inc. reporting a 9.3 percent increase and Nordstrom seeing a 5.6 percent bump. Other chains did not fare as well. Despite opening at midnight on Thanksgiving

for the first time ever, Kohl’s reported a 6.2 percent decline. Struggling Gap Inc., which announced plans in October to close 20 percent of its U.S. stores, dropped 5 percent. J.C. Penney, which did not open on Thanksgiving, said its sales fell 2 percent compared with last November. November’s revenue performance was based on sales at stores open at least a year. Known as same-store sales, the figures are an important measure of retailers’ health because they exclude the effect of new shops and closings. The results underscore a yawning divide between wealthy shoppers and consumers hurt by high unemployment and other financial worries, industry analysts said. “You are seeing two different economies, two sets of consumers,” said James Rushing, a partner in the retail practice

Kearney. “Higher-end shoppers have the ability to shop, while a great portion of the economy is still struggling and retailers who typically appeal to them don’t do as well.” Shoppers shelled out $52.4 billion from Thanksgiving through Sunday, a 16.4 percent surge over $45 billion from the same period last year, the National Retail Federation said. But industry watchers worry that momentum will sputter as shoppers quickly burn through their holiday budgets and then stay home to avoid temptation. Perkins of Retail Metrics said he feared that Black Friday was an “anomaly” fueled by huge hype, blockbuster discounts and extensive media coverage. After that nationwide shopping binge, he predicts a “significant lull from now till the 17th of December, when things get ramped up again in terms of heavy promotions.”

Coakley Continued from B1 The complaint, filed in Suffolk Superior Court, names the same banks whose foreclosure practices caused a national uproar last fall and triggered state and federal investigations: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup and GMAC, now known as Ally Financial. The lawsuit also names Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems and its parent company, MERSCORP, whose vast computerized registry helped lubricate the housing boom by allowing banks to quickly and cheaply transfer the ownership of loans. The Massachusetts suit accuses the banks of foreclosing on homes without holding the mortgage note, undermining the state’s land recording system by using MERS, failing to live up to loan modification agreements with troubled homeowners and filing fraudulent documents. “There is no question that the deceptive and unlawful conduct by Wall Street and the large banks played a central role in causing this economic crisis,” Coakley said, adding that while some banks might be too big to fail, “we believe they are not too big to have to obey the law.” In statements on Thursday, the firms named in the lawsuit denied wrongdoing and vowed to “vigorously” defend themselves against the allegations. “We are disappointed

that Massachusetts would take this action now when negotiations are ongoing with the attorneys general and the federal government on a broader settlement that could bring immediate relief to Massachusetts borrowers rather than years of contested legal proceedings,” said a spokesman at J.P. Morgan Chase, reflecting a common sentiment among the banks. Coakley’s suit again calls into question the fate of settlement negotiations between the banks and a coalition of state attorneys general and federal officials. Those talks, which have gone on for more than a year, have been beset by disagreements over how much the banks should pay for their misdeeds and to what extent any settlement should release the firms from future claims. States such as California, New York and Delaware have backed away from the talks, complaining that the pending settlement would let the banks off too easily. Coakley said months ago she was losing confidence in the talks, particularly as it related to releasing banks from claims related to MERS. “Certainly we don’t rule out that some agreement can be reached. … (But) we have come to believe that it’s taken too long, and the signals to us are that we would not get the relief we sought in Massachusetts,” Coakley said Thursday. “We felt it was important to move forward.”

GM offers to buy back Volts over fire concerns By Bill Vlasic and Nick Bunkley New York Times News Service

DETROIT — In a rare move, General Motors said Thursday that it would buy back Chevrolet Volts if owners were concerned about fire risks. It also promised to comply with any changes to its battery pack recommended by federal regulators. In an interview with The Associated Press, GM’s chief executive, Daniel Akerson, defended the safety of the plug-in hybrid vehicle but said the automaker would purchase Volts from unsatisfied customers. A GM spokesman, Rob Peterson, confirmed the buyback offer. “If there’s a customer that wants to sell back their Volt, we’ll buy it back from them,” Peterson said. Such a buyback is unusual for car companies, which typically institute recalls when regulators or customers report problems with cars or parts. Ford, however, offered to buy back older-model Windstar vans last year after investigations into rear axle problems. The Volt has come under scrutiny after the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration said Nov. 25 that it had opened a defect investigation into the car’s 400pound battery pack. The company on Monday offered free loaner cars to all Volt owners while a federal investigation continued into the potential for post-crash fires in the car’s lithium-ion battery. Two Volt batteries caught on fire after crash simulations, the agency said. One fire occurred three weeks after the battery

Tablets Continued from B1 Tablet prices haven’t quite followed the same pattern, but analysts predict that Apple will lose ground to competitors that go after the lower end of the market. This year’s lineup of gadgets could redefine the tablet market because it shows a deeper understanding of how people use the devices. What do we use tablets for, really? According to a March survey from Google’s AdMob team, the top five pastimes are gaming, surfing, e-mailing, reading the news and accessing social networks. Most tablet use is at home on weeknights in place of traditional computer use. In other words, people use their tablets to veg out. So although Android-based Kindle Fire can’t compete with the quality and processing power of the iPad 2, the $199

After offering Volt owners free loaner cars earlier this week, GM has expanded its goodwill offer, saying it will buy back Volts from customers who are worried about fire risks.

was damaged, and a more recent test resulted in a fire one week later. Another pack emitted smoke and a spark in the aftermath of a crash test. In a separate interview with Reuters, Akerson said that GM would make changes to the Volt’s battery pack if they were recommended by federal officials. Peterson said the company would alter the packs “if there’s an engineering solution required.” Some Volt owners are not concerned about the inquiry. “It just has to be treated carefully in the event of a crash. I really am not worried,” Eric Rotbard, a Volt owner who is a lawyer in White Plains, said in an interview Monday. “We just have to get more comfortable with the technology. It doesn’t seem to be any less safe to me.” The latest developments

came the same day that GM reported that November was the best month for Volt sales since the car was introduced late last year. GM said it sold 1,139 Volts in November, bringing the year’s total to 6,142. However, the company acknowledged for the first time that it would not achieve its target of selling 10,000 Volts this year, even after allowing dealers to sell demonstration models last month to increase inventory. The head of GM’s Chevrolet division, Alan Batey, said that missing the sales target did not diminish the car’s positive effect on the brand. “This vehicle is more than just how many do we sell every month,” Batey said in a conference call with reporters. “It is a magnet around everything we’re trying to do to showcase the brand.”

device doesn’t need to. All it has to do is replace whatever is on the average nightstand or coffee table. Amazon is particularly well-positioned to fill that void because it also happens to be one of the world’s most popular bookstores. The company is betting that its low-cost device will be a hit with the tablet crowd who might just want to replace that stack of bedside books with a paperback-size gadget that lets them read, get in a couple of levels of Angry Birds during commercial breaks and finish their email before bed. Only 28 percent of the tablet owners Google surveyed said they are using tablets as their primary computer, which would require the top-notch processing power. There’s no doubt that the iPad 2 is still a dominant device. Bolstered by Apple’s smooth and fluid iOS, its exten-

sive app store and access to the company’s iCloud services, it’s not likely to come down from the top spot in the market anytime soon. Google’s Android is fantastic but suffers from having to accommodate the quirks of several manufacturers that want to put their own spin on the system. Unlike devices running iOS, Android devices don’t all have the same menu options or layout, which can be frustrating for customers trying to make comparisons. But Google is cooking up a more unified version of Android for its tablets and smartphones that might address complaints that the system is too fragmented. Once the tablet market’s trailblazer, Apple should be looking in its rearview mirror. The company is likely to stay at the top of the market for a while, but competition means it will have to avoid getting too comfortable.

Jobs Continued from B1 After 22 years on the job, Loftis, 44, was laid off from a company that produces air filters and valves in Sterling Heights, Mich., three years ago. Managers “looked me dead in the eye,” he recalled, “and said, ‘We’re laying you off, but don’t worry, we’re calling you back.’ ” He has heard nothing since. Despite applying for more than 100 jobs, he has been unable to find work. He has drained most of his 401(k) retirement fund, amassed credit card debt and is about to sell his car, a 2006 Dodge Charger. “It’s looking hopeless,” he said.

‘Wasted talent’ According to the Rutgers study, those with less education were the most ravaged by job loss during the recession. Even among those who found work, many made much less than before the downturn. “The news is strikingly bad,” said Cliff Zukin, a professor of public policy and political science at Rutgers who compiled the study, which was based on surveys of a random sample of Americans who were unemployed at some point from August 2008 to August 2009. The numbers represent “a tremendous impression of dislocation and pain and wasted talent,” he said. More than two years after the recovery officially began, U.S. employers have reinstated less than a quarter of the jobs lost during the downturn, according to Labor Department figures. Of the 13.1 million people still searching for work, more than 42 percent have been unemployed for six months or longer. About 8.9 million more are working part time because they cannot find full-time work. While health care, mining and other energy-related jobs have boomed throughout the recession and recovery, the other winners have mostly been in skilled professions like computer systems design, management consulting and accounting,

“This recovery is really not a fair and balanced recovery. There are certain sectors that have done well, and others that haven’t done well at all. If you’re in one of the losing sectors, it’s very tough.” — Scot Melland, chief executive, Dice Holdings

where employers have added back as many or more jobs than were cut during the downturn. The sectors that have been slowest to recover are those that endured the most acute job losses, like construction and state and local government. Construction workers are among the biggest sufferers, stung by a housing collapse that led to the loss of 2 million jobs. Since the recovery began, the industry has added just 47,000 jobs. Even manufacturing, which has shown a relatively healthy pace of job creation during the recovery, has added just more than a tenth of the 2.3 million jobs that disappeared in the downturn. “This recovery is really not a fair and balanced recovery,” said Scot Melland, chief executive of Dice Holdings, an online job search service. “There are certain sectors that have done well, and others that haven’t done well at all. If you’re in one of the losing sectors, it’s very tough.”

Breaking with the past Based on previous recessions, employers would have been expected to fill more jobs at this point in the recovery. But the kinds of jobs that typically return first have lagged this time around. “Construction is usually one of the earlier sectors to come back,” said Harry Holzer, an economist at Georgetown University and the Urban Institute. Because she had a college degree, it never occurred to Mowery that she would not eventually find a job. While

collecting unemployment benefits, she tapped her network of friends and sought out the services of a unit of Randstad Holdings, a job placement firm. To brush up on her skills, she took online tutorials in software programs like Photoshop and InDesign. When she landed a new marketing job in December 2010 at a company that resells networking equipment, she started at the same salary she had earned before, but with improved health and retirement benefits and more opportunities for promotion. “I didn’t want to just take a job but make a career move,” she said. “I was pretty confident. Things have a way of working out.”

A step backward Others are desperate. Some of them are sending out scattershot applications for jobs for which they are overqualified. Jaison Abel, senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, said there was “some evidence that people who, in a different time, would have been entering the workforce in midskilled jobs are now entering into the lower-skilled jobs.” Even many of those who have managed to find a job are struggling to restore financial stability. “They have had to take pay cuts or benefit cuts or maybe they don’t get any vacation,” said David Elliot, communications director for USAction, a coalition of grass-roots groups that will release a report today documenting the experiences of unemployed and underemployed workers. Loftis stays at his home in Michigan with his 4-year-old twins and looks for ways to shave costs. He and his wife, who has returned to work in a $10-an-hour factory job, canceled their cable service and no longer travel to see her family in the Philippines or relatives in Florida or Tennessee. As he continues to apply for work, Loftis said employers have told him he has been out of a job for too long. “It’s just hard,” he said. “What can you do to get back on track, you know?”

Ashes caused Bend house fire Fire officials determined that a fire that destroyed a Bend residence Saturday was caused by the improper disposal of ashes. The fire broke out at a residence on Jan Drive near Tumalo around 10:15 p.m. The fire started in a plastic garbage can in the garage, in which ashes had been improperly disposed. The fire department said a contributing factor to the rapid spread of the fire was the insulating foam used in the construction of the house. The two residents escaped before it went up in flames. A cat died in the fire.

REDMOND — A stretch of state-owned land near Redmond’s municipal airport may provide some of the shovel-ready property Central Oregon leaders are looking for. Officials in Crook, Jefferson and Deschutes counties would like to identify half a dozen sites ranging from 50 to 200 acres for industrial development. To that end, they are considering amending their comprehensive plans to make it easier for cities to fold suitable property into their urban growth boundaries. The willingness of Deschutes County’s commissioners to consider using land near Redmond’s airport as an initial project is no surprise. The airport is a critical economic engine, and a draft of Redmond’s 50-year development plan targets the area around it for economic activity. See Industrial / C2

If you’re thinking about moving to South Korea, your life just got a little easier. Oregon and South Korea are set to sign a reciprocity agreement on driver’s licenses today. Once signed, the agreement will allow anyone who holds an Oregon driver’s license to obtain a South Korean license without taking a driving test. South Koreans will receive the same consideration here. The relevant fees in both Oregon and South Korea will remain in place. “It kind of makes it the same as moving from another state,� said David House, spokesman for the Oregon DMV. This is Oregon’s first such agreement with a foreign country and will further the state’s relationship with South Korea. This summer, Oregon became the first U.S. state permitted to export blueberries to South Korea. See Korea / C2

REDMOND — Following a nearly yearlong search, Redmond’s municipal airport has a new director. The city of Redmond has hired Kim Dickie, the current assistant deputy director at San Francisco International Airport, to replace Carrie Novick. Novick is expected to retire in February after 22 years in that position. Dickie will start in late January and receive an annual salary of $103,824. “I feel like we got an early Christmas present by hiring her,� said City Manager David Brandt. “She’s a very capable individual and she commands respect and admiration from her co-workers while being humble and understated. I find that to be a rare trait.� Brandt visited San Francisco International Airport last month to interview Dickie and talk to her co-workers. He came away impressed. Dickie oversees security operations for the San Francisco

airport, a job she’s held since 2004. She worked as the airport’s duty manager from 1999 to 2003, a role in which she represented the airport director in operations-related matters. According to her rÊsumÊ, Dickie has held four different management positions with San Francisco International Airport since 1994. Prior to that, she worked at Travis Air Force Base near Fairfield, Calif. She is a colonel in the Air Force Reserve. Messages left for Dickie had not been returned as of Thursday night. Novick announced her retirement in January and had planned to work through the end of June. She stayed on when the hiring process hit a series of snags. In May, the city offered the job to John Reed of Green Bay, Wis., but he backed away from the offer over concerns his wife, a high school teacher, wouldn’t be able to find a job in the area.

Korea Continued from C1 In September, Gov. John Kitzhaber traveled to South Korea and other Asian nations. House said South Korean officials asked Oregon, Washington and several other states to sign reciprocity agreements. “There’s support for the idea,” House said. “There are a lot of Koreans living in Oregon and the Northwest, in particular. They’re here for business, to go to school.” According to the most recent data available, which date back to 2009, 38 states and Canadian provinces had reciprocal license agreements with foreign countries. Germany is the most popular partner, and Taiwan is the only Asian nation represented, according to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. Though Oregon’s agreement with South Korea is its first, the state does have an “informal” agreement with

Germany, House said. The ties between South Korea and Oregon extend beyond trade agreements. Last year, 22,000 South Korean residents entered Oregon, according to Travel Oregon. The reasons behind those visits were unavailable, but South Korean visits to Oregon increased by nearly 7 percent from 2010 to 2011. Most international travelers can rent a car and use their existing licenses to drive in the United States, so the new agreement has little direct effect on tourism. But there is a symbolic significance to the agreement, according to Teresa O’Neill, Travel Oregon’s vice president of global sales. Deals like this and trade agreements let a country’s residents know that Oregon is a welcoming destination, O’Neill said. “All of those factors are important when you’re competing with larger destinations.” — Reporter: 541-633-2161,

Industrial Continued from C1 On Wednesday, Deschutes County became the first Central Oregon county to move forward with the necessary plan amendment. And on Thursday morning, the three commissioners discussed the process with Redmond city councilors. Alan Unger, a commissioner and Redmond resident, said he views a 900-acre stretch of Oregon Department of State Lands south of Redmond’s airport as a prime location for one of the industrial sites. He encouraged council members to consider the area as well, arguing that “they have a chance to be the face of this project.” Ed Boero, Shirlee Evans and Jay Patrick, the only councilors in attendance at Thursday’s meeting, appeared supportive. “I think you’re right,” Evans said to Unger. “It needs to go to council, but that is what pops into my mind: the DSL land.” The state has supported the effort to expand the region’s supply of industrial land, making it clear that it would

Airport Continued from C1 Two candidates, Lloyd Arnold, of Montrose, Colo., and Mark Jucht, of Salem, were invited to interview earlier in August. But neither candidate remained in the process long enough for the city to tender an offer. “One of them dropped out before the interview,” Brandt said in August, “and the other one dropped out of the process when we informed him we would have to do a background check.” The city then hired a consultant to help with the search, but Dickie had submitted her application already. Brandt said Dickie has ties to Central

sell or lease state-owned property at the right price. Deschutes County’s plan amendment is not a done deal. A 21-day appeal period follows this week’s unanimous approval by county commissioners, and officials are bracing for a challenge. Peter Gutowsky, the county’s principal planner, expects at least one group, 1000 Friends of Oregon, to appeal. He believes Crook and Jefferson counties will wait for the appeals process to conclude before passing similar plan amendments. If the amendments do go through, cities in Central Oregon will be able to identify areas they’d like to bring into their growth boundaries and seek approval from a governing body representing all three counties. At that point, individual counties may fast-track the annexation process, allowing cities to develop the properties as shovel-ready sites. The three counties may have no more than six sites in total, and no single county may have more than four such sites. — Reporter: 541-617-7837,

Oregon and had stopped in to ask about the job during a visit to the area. “She originally didn’t fit the profile, as we were looking for someone from a similar-sized airport,” Brandt said. “I’m glad she came to us to ask.” The airport has a few projects planned in the coming years. Safety projects are expected to begin in 2012, and a runway extension is planned in the next five years. The airport is considered critical to the region’s economy. A draft of Redmond’s development plan targets the area around it for economic development over the next 50 years. — Reporter: 541-617-7837,

Contractor seeking to finish coastal road NEWPORT — A contractor is looking for new ways to finish a road-straightening job through the Oregon Coast Range that has been plagued by ancient landslides damaging bridges. The cost of the work on U.S. Highway 20 has escalated from $150 million to nearly $230 million, and is expected to rise. Work has been halted for more than a year after engineers found that moving earth had knocked two bridges off plumb. Altogether, three of the four bridges in the slide area are showing damage. Efforts to stop the landslide have failed. The contractor is now thinking of eliminating some of the bridges in the design, which could mean more earthwork to finish the job.

Unattended luggage briefly shuts terminal PORTLAND — Portland International Airport resumed normal operations after a piece of unattended luggage was found by a Port of Portland police canine unit Thursday. Part of the baggage area and the airport’s lower terminal road were closed for three hours while the bag was checked out. The bag was regarded as suspicious because it was unattended. Port spokesman Steve Johnson says the Metropolitan Explosives Disposal Unit opened the bag and determined the contents were harmless. Johnson says port police have located the bag’s owner and the incident is under investigation.

Natural gas leak forces evacuations BROOKS — Fire officials in the Willamette Valley say a natural gas leak prompted them to evacuate 10 homes and a business and close a road Wednesday night south of Brooks. Battalion Chief Patrick Wineman with Marion County Fire District No. 1 says firefighters found a large leak coming from a valve station owned by NW Natural Gas when they responded about 7:15 p.m. Due to the potential for explosion, Portland Road was closed in both directions and nearby residents were asked to leave. Wineman says gas company employees were able to stop the leak by 8:40 p.m. Residents have returned to their homes and the road has reopened.

Steam flash caused tofu explosion PORTLAND — Portland fire investigators have determined how a pan of tofu exploded, blowing out a window and causing $15,000 damage. The Fire Bureau said Wednesday that the woman cooking the tofu for dinner Sunday attempted to put out a grease fire by putting the pan in a sink of water. That caused a massive steam eruption that pushed out the window and activated a sprinkler. The 25-year-old woman initially told firefighters the hot pan flashed as she rinsed it. She suffered a slight hand burn. The blast knocked the 4-by6-foot window into the street.

Man charged in fake cancer diagnosis EUGENE — A Springfield man accused of faking cancer has been charged with theft by deception. Charles Embleton, 28, appeared in court Wednesday and had his trial set for Feb. 28. His lawyer advised him not to comment on the case. Police said members of Embleton’s church who raised money for medical costs became suspicious last May after he gained, rather than lost, weight. Police got a court order for his medical records, which failed to confirm a cancer diagnosis. — From wire reports

Aaron Whisenant works out in the gym at his apartment complex in Springfield. After losing 70 pounds, Whisenant was recognized by the Air Force for his effort to get in shape to join the branch of the military early next year.

To join the Air Force, man, 23, sheds 70 pounds in 6 months By Matt Cooper Eugene Register-Guard

SPRINGFIELD — Only one man stood between Aaron Whisenant and his goal of joining the U.S. Air Force: Whisenant himself. The 23-year-old who walked into a Eugene recruiting office six months ago had brains, athleticism, a good attitude and a sense of responsibility. There was just one problem: Whisenant was 70 pounds over the limit for a 6foot-3-inch guy to enlist. What happened next is a story about devotion to country, service, eating right and working out. It starts with a young man who wanted only to be at his brother’s side in the military and ends with the brass recognizing someone as an exceptional young recruit. After being laid off earlier this year from a job as an appliance technician, Whisenant was considering his options when he followed his brother, Jeffrey, into an Air Force recruiting office. Whisenant decided to enlist, too, inspired by the history of service in his family but also wanting to keep an eye on his little brother. “He hadn’t been out in the world,” said Whisenant, a tall, powerfully built man with an easygoing demeanor. “(To have) a family member in the same branch, he wouldn’t feel like he would be alone in the military.” But the reaction from Air Force staff was cool, to say the least. Four out of five applicants don’t make the cut for the Air Force, and somebody with Whisenant’s weight challenge would be “pretty much written off,” said Master Sgt. Anthony Pandina of the 361st Recruiting Squadron at Joint Base LewisMcChord, near Tacoma, Wash. But Whisenant was a multisport athlete at Mohawk High School — including first-team all-league as a center on the

football team — and he knew a thing or two about getting in shape. First, he overhauled his diet. Out went bread and sweets, and wolfing down half a dish of lasagna for dinner. In came broccoli, celery and skinless chicken breasts steamed in water. Whisenant also connected with his inner chef. He found he could satisfy his cravings by cooking elaborate dishes for family and friends — soft tacos, enchiladas, burritos and special dips, all prepared, he said, to “restaurant quality.” “I spent so much time making it, once I saw them eating it, I wasn’t really thinking about eating it,” Whisenant said. “(Cooking) calms you down.” He also went on a workout tear, putting in at least two hours a day of aerobic activity in his Springfield apartment and hitting the gym in the apartment complex. His drill sergeant came in the form of workout videos starring Billy Blanks, a fitness guru and tireless leader of grueling, “cardio-boxing” exercises called Tae Bo. Whisenant punched, kicked and bobbed so regularly that he committed Blanks’ running commentary to memory. Whisenant lost 25 pounds in the first two months and repeatedly shed 10 pounds in a week. Whisenant visited the recruiting office every so often to weigh in, where Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Jackson would record his progress. “I would laugh, because I couldn’t believe it was actually happening,” Jackson said. “It was coming off in chunks.”

But as Whisenant zeroed in on his goal — 220 pounds — the big gains started to disappear. His weight was leveling off, he said, so he had to crank things up, at times working out nearly five hours a day, four days a week. Success arrived in October, when he tipped the scales at 217 pounds. On Wednesday, Pandina and Chief Master Sgt. Andrew Sites traveled from Tacoma to recognize Whisenant at the local recruiting office, where they awarded him a silver Commander’s Coin for his commitment and welcomed him to the Air Force. “Job well done,” Pandina said, shaking Whisenant’s hand. “People should have your dedication to serve our country, and you just don’t see it in our country as often.” Whisenant, who is engaged to be married Dec. 10, leaves early next year for basic training at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio. He’ll work as a cryptologic linguist specialist, gathering information by decrypting foreign languages. Whisenant said he’s excited to see more of his country. In fact, he hopes at some point that his travels will intersect with a taping of a favorite TV show, “Man vs. Food Nation,” a competition that revolves around copious amounts of eating. Whisenant hopes he might even be a contestant. But just once, he hastens to add. “Just as a joke,” Whisenant said, smiling. “It’s not like I’m going to dedicate my life to eating.”


Police investigate victim’s online gaming By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

Police trying to catch the killer who nearly decapitated a grocery store clerk on a bike path through Ashland are looking into the victim’s online gaming, including one video game that contains scenes of medieval swordplay. Police Chief Terry Holderness said Thursday that nearly two weeks into the investigation of the slaying of David Grubbs, police remain baffled, with no viable suspects, no murder weapon, and no witnesses to the crime, leading them to consider even unlikely scenarios. “I don’t feel good about the position we’re in,” he said. “We’re well into the second week. We haven’t identified a

viable suspect yet. That’s not a promising place to be. We have 15 detectives working this case. We had 40 people at one time. “It’s still possible that this is a total and complete random act that had nothing to do with the victim except time and place. That’s extremely rare, but it is possible.” That possibility prompted some 500 people to turn out Tuesday night for a community forum on the slaying, where Holderness said he could not assure people they were safe. Since indicating that the weapon might have been a very sharp sword or machete, Holderness said he has been surprised by the number of tips coming in from people saying they know someone

who owns a sword, or has a picture on their Facebook page posing with a sword. Holderness said police have interviewed people in surveillance videos from nearby businesses at the time of the slaying, and even tracked down a skateboard and helmet found in nearby bushes. They turned out to have been left by a boy from a nearby home for troubled boys, and were not related to the slaying. Grubbs was an avid online gamer, and had a new copy of a game called “Assassin’s Creed,” which includes a decapitation scene, Holderness said. Police have his two gaming consoles and dozens of games, but there is little chance of tracking down people he played with online.

State should end religious exemption for immunizations


regon is near the top of a list that it’s no honor to lead. A greater percentage of parents in Oregon refuse to have their children immunized against dis-

ease than in all but a small handful of states, and it’s time the Legislature did something about it. More than 5 percent of kids in this state are not immunized, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The city with the highest percentage of unimmunized children is Ashland, but in several schools in Bend, a third or more of students attend without proper immunization. Some few no doubt have health problems that make immunization more dangerous than the diseases immunizations prevent, but most parents cite religious reasons for keeping their children unimmunized. This in a state that ranks in the bottom 10 for church attendance, according to a Gallup poll taken last year. The problem extends beyond the children whose families forgo immunization, unfortunately. The “herd� immunity effect, which provides protection to the unimmunized so long as the vast majority of those nearby are immunized, is threatened at some schools in Oregon and clearly gone in others. So far we’ve been lucky in that no major outbreak of such highly contagious diseases as measles has occurred, but there’s no guarantee our luck will continue.

As we’ve noted before, it’s time the Legislature took action by ending the religious exemption this state grants parents who simply check a box on a form and sign their name. Were it to end the religious out, Oregon would join Mississippi and West Virginia in doing so. Interestingly, Mississippi, with the highest immunization rate in the nation, also leads in church attendance, at more than double that of Oregon. We’re all for religious freedom, at least up to a point. We believe that parents should not be able to withhold medical care from children on religious grounds, for one thing. Nor do we believe they should be allowed to keep their children unvaccinated because of their beliefs. Their failure not only threatens their own children, but children and adults who may come in contact with them. That’s not a religious issue, it’s one of public health, and public health is the state’s responsibility. Lawmakers should end the religious exemption from immunization requirements as quickly as possible.

Interests of girl taken overseas come first


ade Axmaker has spent most of her 3½ years in the care of her mother’s sister, but a court has turned the child over to her legal father’s family. According to Portland lawyer Steven Richkind, this is an outrage that requires legal and legislative action. We don’t agree. The saga began, according to Richkind’s account, with a sham marriage between Jade’s mother, Tara Axmaker, and Fannar Gunnlaugson, an Icelandic national, to improve his chances of gaining permanent residence in the United States. Tara Axmaker was paid $1,000, said Richkind, and the two lived together for a while in Nevada and consummated the marriage. But after a short time they separated, and Tara Axmaker says Gunnlaugson couldn’t be Jade’s father because she was separated from him for 11 months before the birth. However, she doesn’t know who is the father because of drug problems, and she is now serving a four-year sentence at the Coffee Creek Correctional Institution in Wilsonville for attempted seconddegree assault in a stabbing.

Her sister, Kayla Axmaker, has been caring for the child, and Gunnlaugson was deported after the marriage was revealed to be a sham. Nevertheless, he is still the child’s legal father because he was married to her mother when she was born. A Multnomah County court considered the case in May and ordered that Jade be turned over to Gunnlaugson’s parents, and she has since been taken to Iceland for a holiday. Richkind, who is representing Tara and Kayla Axmaker, calls the case “bizarre beyond belief,� and on that we can agree. But he goes further: “How could any rational person who cares for children not recognize that an American child who speaks English does not belong in Iceland?� And: “This is something I think needs to be changed by the Legislature.� We have no trouble imagining the loss that Kayla Axmaker feels. But we expect the court to be looking out primarily for the interests of the child. It’s not in any way clear that the child would be better off under the legal control of her troubled mother, nor that any laws need changing.

Close collaboration between government, private sector keeps jobs in Central Oregon By Rick Williams During this past summer, Central Oregon Truck Co. was faced with the question of establishing a new corporate headquarters in Central Oregon or relocating to another state. Our company hauls freight throughout the United States and Canada and currently employs 125 people in Oregon. The average employee salary and benefit package is $58,530, which is approximately 150 percent of the Central Oregon average. But in order for us to build a new headquarters in Redmond’s industrial area, an acceleration lane on U.S. Highway 97 along with a widened intersection on Southeast Ninth Street is needed to accommodate the increased truck movements and provide for the safe and efficient operation of our fleet. Shortly after these needs were identified, a series of governmental entities jumped into action. The governor has set up Regional Solutions Teams for each of the economic development districts in the state to focus agency work and investments on regional priorities, to integrate public and private resources to solve problems and seize opportunities to grow Oregon’s economy and create jobs. The governor’s Regional Solutions Team, the city of Redmond, Deschutes County and Economic Development of Central Oregon worked to identify funding opportunities and completed an Immediate Opportunity Fund application.

IN MY VIEW The Oregon Transportation Commission awards these funds to transportation projects that influence the location, relocation and retention of businesses in Oregon by building and improving streets and roads that require a quick response and commitment of dollars. Through this collaborative effort our application was approved in less than a month. The total project cost is $495,000; the city of Redmond will provide $123,750 in local match, which represents 25 percent of the total project cost. The design and construction of the transportation improvements will be coordinated with the construction of COTC’s new buildings and are scheduled to be completed in October 2012. Not only does this project support retaining jobs in Oregon, it also supports the creation of jobs. COTC plans to grow our fleet by 25 units, which would make us a 200-truck company fleet. As we continue to grow our company, we anticipate adding eight to 10 jobs for logistical services, clerical, administrative and operations support. COTC continues to grow during a challenging economy because our business is nationwide and not locally dependent. While we could have been anywhere, we chose to stay in Oregon, and in particular Central Oregon, for a multitude of reasons.

“While we could have been anywhere, we chose to stay in Oregon, and in particular Central Oregon, for a multitude of reasons.� We appreciate the efforts of all of the agencies involved, and we particularly appreciate those individuals who had the foresight to see the value of a transportation company remaining here. Our special thanks go to Jon Stark at EDCO for his hard work and help. Jon really took us by the hand and helped us make decisions by either finding out answers or directing us in the right direction or to the right people. Jon was great at keeping the ball rolling. We also value the wonderful quality of life, the beauty of the state, the excellent people here in Central Oregon, the central location of Central Oregon to the 11 Western states, schools, costs of living and our family roots and ties. We were truly impressed with how quickly everyone responded, and support from all partners continued to tip the scale in Central Oregon’s favor as we considered sites in other states. The bottom line? A true collaboration between government and the private sector worked to retain jobs in Central Oregon. — Rick Williams is the CEO of Central Oregon Truck Co.

Occupy movement’s negative mentality doesn’t reflect the 99%


iewed through the long lens any child of the 1960s now has, the Occupy Wall Street movement is nothing so much as a wonderful reminder that the older we get, the more we see life in shades of gray rather than in the black-andwhite certainty of our youth. It’s fine, for example, to decry the federal bailout of American banks several years ago, hard to feel sympathy for institutions that needed a government hand to stay afloat even as their practices were helping drive thousands of American families into financial ruin. At the same time, it’s easy to forget that most big banks involved in the bailout — Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Chase among them — have paid back what they borrowed, and in most cases the government actually

made a bit of money on the deal. It’s equally easy to forget that homeowners who took out mortgages they couldn’t possibly pay back were not forced into those transactions. They were voluntary, even eager, participants in their own ruin. Then there’s the Occupy movement’s protests against big-box stores on Black Friday. There’s no harm in suggesting that all our Christmas shopping be done at small local stores this year. The men and women who own those stores and the people they hire are, after all, our neighbors, their interests clearly tied to the interests of the community as a whole. At the same time, however, every person who works at the Bend Walmart and Target also lives in the region, is a neighbor, has children in the same schools our own children

JANET STEVENS attend. If their employers take their big-box stores elsewhere, those people, literally hundreds of them, will find themselves unemployed. Members of the Occupy movement claim they represent the 99 percent of Americans that most of us are, not the 1 percent who are truly wealthy. I beg to differ. I doubt I have any more in common with Occupyers than I do with Bill Gates, and I suspect I’m not alone in that. In reality, it’s almost impossible to tell. The Occupy message is so fragmented it’s difficult to discern. There are parts of it, however, that clearly do not represent my views.

For one thing, I’m not sure what part of free speech gives any group the right to take over city parks for weeks at a time. I suspect that if I and the two folks who share office space with me, all of us on the far side of 40, set up camp in Pioneer Park to protest some city policy, we’d be hustled along in pretty short order. To date the Occupy Portland group has cost that city well over $1 million, most of that in overtime costs for city police. Damage to the two parks they took over will cost at least $85,000 to repair, though that’s an early estimate that officials say will certainly go up. The irony, at least for me, comes in how most of the money spent on parks will be used. It isn’t going to replace sod or to protect damaged trees or to remove trash. No, it’s going to repair the work of vandals in public

restrooms, on park benches and statues. Sinks and toilets were destroyed, walls covered in graffiti, plumbing clogged beyond repair. That, certainly, isn’t the work of the 99 percent of us who don’t live in Bill Gates’ financial neighborhood. Yet, were we all living in Portland this morning, it’s we who would pay, right along with Gates, for the repairs. Perhaps that is what I find troublesome about the Occupy movement. It ignores the fact that in this world, we’re all in it together. Our actions and decisions influence the lives of people we know well and people we hardly know at all. When those actions are destructive, as much of what the Occupyers have done is, we all pay, like it or not. — Janet Stevens is deputy editor of The Bulletin.

Czech cartoonist created ever-cheerful Little Mole By Karel Janicek The Associated Press

PRAGUE — In the 1950s, Zdenek Miler stumbled over a molehill in woods west of Prague, giving him the idea for an animated cartoon character that has enchanted millions of children around the world and even made it into space on a NASA shuttle. Miler, creator of the Little Mole character, died Wednesday in Nova Ves pod Plesi, southwest of Prague. He was 90. Born Feb. 21, 1921, in the town of Kladno, he graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. He illustrated a number of children’s books and made several cartoons, but his most famous creation was the mole. He created the character, which is always cheerful and ready to help those in need, in 1956 after walking in woods near Kladno and tripping over a molehill. “So, I said to myself: That’s it — the mole,� Miler said in a 2006 interview with Czech public radio. The very first episode, titled “How the Mole got his Trousers,� was an immediate hit. Since then, 50 episodes have been made, attracting a wide audience among children in Eastern Europe and countries such as Germany, Austria, China and India. A stuffed toy of Little Mole, known as “Krtek� in Czech (pronounced KRRR-tech), returned to Earth in July after a voyage to outer space on NASA’s shuttle Endeavour. The toy accompanied American astronaut Andrew Feustel

on NASA’s last shuttle mission. Feustel’s wife, Indira, is of Czech origin. “Krtek spent a lot of time floating around the international space station,� Feustel commented during his visit to Prague. Miler said in a letter to Feustel he was honored. The mole doesn’t speak and uses just nonverbal exclamations to express his feelings, a strategy that resonates well with an international audience. More than 5 million copies of books with the mole adventures, translated into 20 languages, have been sold worldwide as well as numerous mole toys. Miler personally signed off on all designs based on the mole until he died. “He never disappointed me,� Miler said about the mole. “He made me happy all my life.�

Report: Nuclear workers’ safety culture is just fine By Shannon Dininny The Associated Press

YAKIMA, Wash. — Workers who are designing and building a waste treatment plant at the nation’s most contaminated nuclear site generally are not reluctant to raise safety concerns, even though there have been isolated cases where workers have said otherwise, a new report concluded Thursday. The report differed starkly from earlier findings of the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, which raised concerns about the safety culture at the Hanford nuclear reservation plant, and critics immediately disparaged the latest findings as being “bought and paid for� by the site contractor. The $12.3 billion plant in southeast Washington is being built to convert highly radioactive waste into a stable, glass form for permanent disposal underground. The oneof-a-kind project has long endured technical problems, resulting in delays and cost overruns, though it is widely considered the cornerstone of cleanup at the highly contaminated site. Some 53 million gallons of highly radioactive waste left from decades of plutonium production for the nation’s nuclear weapons arsenal are stored in 177 aging, underground tanks at Hanford. Many of those tanks have leaked, threatening the groundwater and the neighboring Columbia River, the largest waterway in the Pacific Northwest. Two Hanford workers have filed suit as whistle-blow-

ers — the latest one filed last month — claiming they were targeted for reprisals after raising safety concerns or offering differing technical opinions about the plant. The new report by a sevenmember team of nuclear consultants found no evidence that the U.S. Department of Energy, which oversees Hanford cleanup, and builder Bechtel National Inc. suppressed technical dissent by employees. The team also found no general reluctance to raising safety or technical issues that could impact the overall safety of the project, “even though there were isolated expressions to the contrary,� said Nils Diaz, vice chairman of the Independent Safety and Quality Culture Assessment team. Rather, the team concluded there is a lack of effective and timely resolution of technical issues on the project, which contributes to “real and perceived problems� about the project’s safety culture, he said, and communication needs to improve. “They need better communications with a common principle, and that common principle is safety,� he said.

Report quickly challenged Tom Carpenter of the worker advocacy group Hanford Challenge immediately criticized the report, calling it a “soft-pedaling� of the safety concerns. “Bechtel bought and paid for its own analysis,� he said. “This just sets up a big dispute, probably before

Congress, about who’s right, which is a shame, because I think we need to acknowledge that there is a safety culture problem and move forward to heal it, rather than continue to deny it.� The Energy Department remains committed to continuously improving the safety culture at the plant, including ensuring that technical and safety issues are addressed in a timely and effective manner, agency spokeswoman Lindsey Geisler said in a statement. She said the department will review the team’s recommendations, and once its own assessment is completed, will develop a plan to address any weaknesses and deficiencies in safety culture. Bechtel project director Frank Russo issued a lengthy statement to his employees about the report, encouraging them to read it and become familiar with it. He stressed the consultants’ points that the review was conducted independent of Bechtel but with the company’s full cooperation. The report offered many criticisms and opportunities for improvement, he said, while recognizing efforts in the past few years to improve safety. “As a management team, we accept the findings of the ISQCA team, and we will immediately initiate actions to implement the team’s recommendations,� Russo said. Regardless of who paid for the report, the team was put together with the assurance that it would be completely independent, Diaz said.

Feds propose caribou Small plane that crashed habitat safeguards held teacher, student pilot By John Miller

The Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho — Nearly 600 square miles of land in northern Idaho and northeastern Washington will be designated critical habitat for a woodland caribou herd that has seen its numbers dwindle to less than 50, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Tuesday. Environmental groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity and Defenders of Wildlife, sued in 2002, contending the 1984 listing of the woodland caribou under the Endangered Species Act must be accompanied by habitat protections. It took a subsequent 2009 lawsuit to force the agency into the action announced Tuesday. “It’s hard to recover species without protecting core habitat,� said Mike Leahy, of Defenders of Wildlife in Bozeman, Mont. “The potential gain here is that impacts to habitat, as opposed to just the animals themselves, will be more carefully evaluated.�

The proposal includes 295,000 acres of federal land in Idaho’s Boundary and Bonner County and Washington’s Pend Oreille County, near the Canadian border; 65,000 acres of state of Idaho land; and some 15,000 acres of private land in Idaho. The lower 48 states’ last remaining woodland caribou herd wanders the border area between Washington, Idaho and British Columbia. Caribou were listed under the ESA 27 years ago, but the Fish and Wildlife Service refrained from designating critical habitat. At the time, it argued that telegraphing to the public just where the caribou were could heighten poaching risks. Susan Burch, chief for listing and recovery in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in Boise, said the new designation won’t result in significant changes in management of the rugged, mountainous territory, which is more than half the size of Rhode Island.

The Associated Press SEATTLE — The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the Wednesday night crash of a small plane at Boeing Field in Seattle. The wreckage of the twin-engine Piper PA44 remained upside down Thursday morning, but the King County airport is open. Airport spokeswoman Rochelle Ogershok says the plane was taking off when it veered into a parked plane and caught fire. Airport firefighters quickly extinguished the flames. Officials say a student pilot in his 20s and a flight instructor in her 30s were treated for scratches. FAA records indicate the plane is registered to Hillsboro Aviation, based at the Hillsboro airport near Portland.

Jackson County commissioners smoothed ruffled feathers in White City on Wednesday when they agreed to lift a ban on backyard chickens. Under the new ordinance, the county will allow five chickens on a quarter-acre lot in the unincorporated community. The ordinance also will allow a limited number of rabbits, alpacas, sheep, goats and miniature horses. White City residents had been threatened with fines.

PREP WRESTLING Officials set to host tournament More than 300 wrestlers representing high schools across the High Desert are expected to take part Saturday in the inaugural Central Oregon Wrestling Officials Association Tournament. The tournament, hosted by the COWOA, gets under way at 10 a.m. at Summit High School in Bend. According to Steve Sabine, COWOA commissioner and director of Saturday’s tournament, the event is being staged as a fundraiser for area high school wrestling programs. Fifteen COWOA members will volunteer their services to officiate the tournament, which will include wrestlers from Summit, Bend, Mountain View, Redmond, Madras, Sisters, La Pine, Culver, Gilchrist, Burns and North Lake high schools. Brackets will be filled for varsity and junior varsity divisions. Each participant is expected to wrestle five matches. Champions will be determined in 14 weight classes for both the varsity and JV levels. Team scores will not be kept. The tournament is scheduled to conclude by about 5 p.m. Admission is set at $5 for adults, $3 for students.


Paving the way • Mountain View’s offensive and defensive lines have played a critical part in the Cougars’ success this season By Beau Eastes The Bulletin

After losing to Sherwood in last year’s state semifinal, Mountain View had every reason to be optimistic heading into this football season. The Cougars returned four all-state players — quarterback Jacob Hollister and his twin brother, receiver Cody Hollister, along with linebacker Joel Skotte and defensive back Dimitri Dillard — all of whom are part of a strong senior class. Mountain View was loaded at the skill positions on offense and set at linebacker and in the secondary on de-

fense. The biggest concern for the Cougars entering 2011 was how the front lines would hold up. As Mountain View prepares to play for its first football state title, that concern is pretty much moot. “If you would have asked me at the beginning of the year what our weakness was or what was I worried about, I’d have told you our offensive and defensive lines,” says Cougar coach Steve Turner, who had to replace four all-Intermountain Conference offensive linemen from last year and two all-league selections on his defensive line.

Mountain View’s defensive line, from left, Nick Thompson, Justin Warren, Hayden Czmowski, Dylan Johnson and Nick Gentry will have a key roll in keeping Sherwood from the end zone Saturday night during the Class 5A state championship final in Hillsboro.

Culver’s Bain in the money Bulletin staff report LAS VEGAS — Culver’s Brian Bain placed fourth in the bareback competition, highlighting the opening-night performance for Central Oregon contestants Thursday at the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Bain received a score of 86.0 to finish fourth behind current world earnings leader Kaycee Feild, whose 89.0 was good for first place. The top six placers in each round win money; Bain’s ride was worth $7,500. Three other Central Oregon cowboys in the 15-rider bareback field finished out of the money. Bobby Mote, also of Culver and a four-time

world champion in the event, tied for eighth place with a score of 81.0. Jason Havens, of Prineville, placed 11th with a score of 80.0. And Steven Peebles, of Redmond, scored a 74.5 for 14th place. Also from Central Oregon, Brenda Mays, a barrel racer from Terrebonne, placed 10th with a time of 14.58 seconds. And Powell Butte header Brandon Beers and his partner, heeler Jim Ross Cooper, of Monument, N.M., did not post a time in team roping. The 53rd annual NFR continues tonight with the second of 10 performances at the Thomas & Mack Center.

The Pac-12 Conference’s first championship game caps an eventful week in the league — so eventful that the game itself between Oregon (No. 9 BCS, No. 8 AP) and UCLA seems a bit anticlimactic. The Ducks are so heavily favored that the attention tonight may not be on Autzen Stadium’s field, but on the sidelines, where Rick Neuheisel will oversee his final game as the Bruins’ head coach. Neuheisel was fired following last weekend’s 50-0 loss to rival Southern California. It was part of a wave of coaching moves in the conference. About the time Neuheisel’s dismissal was announced, Arizona State let go of Dennis Erickson. Then Washington State parted ways with Paul Wulff, and the Cougars quickly hired former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach a day later. Neuheisel said he does not want the Bruins’ appearance in the title game to turn into a “Win One For Rick” crusade. “That sounds like a bad B movie. It need not be about me. It’s always been about us,” he said. “It’s always been about the mission and the passion that a team, if you’re really engaged with a team, can bring about. I’m just excited to be on the team for one more try.” For their last practice before departing Los Angeles for Eugene, the Bruins carried Neuheisel off Spaulding Field. Then the coach teared up while speaking to reporters. “It’s meaningful when you work to create relationships, and you want desperately for them to achieve what they’re capable of,” he said. “Despite the fact that we didn’t win enough games, I think they are achieving as people. I’m extremely proud to be a part of this team, and looking forward to — hopefully — a grand finish.” The reality is that UCLA (66, 5-4) faces a major challenge in the Ducks (10-2, 8-1).

Volleyball •Ducks ousted from NCAA tourney: No. 13 Oregon lost 3 games to 2 to Colorado State in the first round of the NCAA Division I volleyball tournament Thursday at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu. The Ducks, who were making their fifth NCAA tournament appearance in the last six years, finished the season with an overall record of 21-10.

Football • West Virginia rallies for share of Big East title: Tavon Austin returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown, Pat Miller scored on a 52-yard interception return and Tyler Bitancurt kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired, helping No. 22 West Virginia clinch a share of the Big East championship with a 30-27 victory over South Florida on Thursday night in Tampa, Fla. The Mountaineers (9-3, 5-2) pulled even with Louisville in the conference standings and likely will receive the league’s automatic berth in the Bowl Championship Series if Cincinnati beats Connecticut on Saturday to create a three-way tie for the title. • A&M fires Sherman after disappointing season: Mike Sherman was fired as Texas A&M’s coach after the Aggies finished the regular season a disappointing 6-6. Athletic Director Bill Byrne announced the move in a statement Thursday night. Sherman was 25-25 in four seasons. He was hired at the end of the 2007 season, three days after Dennis Franchione resigned. Sherman’s best and only winning season came last year when the Aggies won their last six regularseason games and lost in the Cotton Bowl to finish 9-4. • WADA states NFLPA stance on HGH test ‘not about science’: Criticizing the NFL Players Association for blocking tests for human growth hormone, the head of the World Anti-Doping Agency said Thursday the union’s objections are “not about science” and have “no substance.” Speaking to reporters at an anti-doping conference hosted at NFL headquarters, WADA director general David Howman added that the NFLPA’s stance could lead one to believe that HGH use is a problem in pro football.



Seahawks cruise past Eagles By Tim Booth The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Marshawn Lynch loves the prime-time stage, even if he’s rarely given such a spotlight. But he wasn’t about to accept any praise on a night when he certainly deserved it. “It was all about the offensive line. We managed the game, we came out victorious, everybody’s happy, and now we’re on to our break,” Lynch said during a very brief locker room appearance. “Thank you.” Seattle’s hard-charging running back bulled through Philadelphia for 148 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns, David Hawthorne returned the third of Vince Young’s four interceptions 77 yards for a score, and the Seahawks rolled to a 31-14 victory Thursday that only added to the Eagles’ miserable season. Lynch ran into and escaped from a massive pileup for a 15-yard TD run in the first quarter, then made a quick cut and went back against the flow for a 40yard scoring dash on the first play of the second quarter to give the Seahawks (57) a 14-0 lead. It was the second-best performance of Lynch’s career and a capper to what has been his finest stretch as a pro. Lynch never had consecutive 100-yard rushing games until a few weeks ago. Now he’s done it in four of Seattle’s past five, and the only time he didn’t, Lynch had 88 yards in a victory over St. Louis. His first-quarter, escape-act touchdown against Philadelphia (4-8) gave Lynch eight straight games with at least one score and added a highlight reminiscent of his famous tackle-breaking, 67yard TD run in last year’s NFC playoffs against New Orleans. It’s all adding up to more dollars likely coming Lynch’s way. He’s a free agent after the season. “He fights for every yard, every carry he gets,” Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson said. “It’s like every carry is his last carry.” Lynch had 90 yards by halftime, the most first-half yards rushing in his career. He averaged 6.7 yards per carry and almost immediately provided a spark the Seahawks needed on a short week. And he did it while battling an upset stomach that occasionally forced him to the sideline. “The guy blows my mind every time we step on the field,” Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said. Golden Tate’s 11-yard, toe-tapping touchdown grab along the back edge of the end zone in the third quarter pushed Seattle’s cushion to 17. Jackson finished

13 of 16 for 190 yards and the one TD pass. But the Seahawks’ third victory in their last four games wasn’t secured until Hawthorne stepped in front of a swing pass intended for LeSean McCoy and raced untouched in the other direction with 4:24 left. It was Hawthorne’s third interception of the season, but he was getting plenty of grief from his teammates for the length of time it took him to get to the end zone. And of course, the first guy to greet Hawthorne in the end zone was Lynch running off the sideline without his helmet. “There is no grief in touchdowns. The slowest touchdown, the fastest touchdown equals seven,” Hawthorne said while teammates yelled “slow” in the background. Making his third straight start in place of Michael Vick and his two broken ribs,

Young couldn’t find the same magic he did in the 2006 Rose Bowl when he led Texas to an upset of Pete Carroll and USC. Young’s first pass of the night was an awful interception thrown right to Seattle safety Kam Chancellor and nowhere near an Eagles receiver. Young was intercepted in the third quarter as well when a perfect pass deflected off the hands of Riley Cooper and into the hands of cornerback Brandon Browner. Both turnovers led to Seattle touchdowns. Then came a pass for McCoy when Young clearly didn’t see Hawthorne, ruining the Eagles’ last chance to rally. Seattle safety Earl Thomas jumped Young’s primary target and by the time he came back to McCoy, Hawthorne was ready for the pass. “He was expecting him to be open and he wasn’t,” Hawthorne said.


Motor sports • Newman-Haas race team leaving IndyCar in 2012: One of the biggest names in IndyCar racing is leaving the series next season. Newman-Haas Racing, the team started by late actor Paul Newman, has decided it will not compete in 2012. It’s the first time since 1982 Newman-Haas will not field an open-car team. Carl Haas, the team’s co-founder, made the announcement in a one-sentence statement indicating the team had trouble finding sponsorship. • Earnhardt again named NASCAR’s most popular driver: Dale Earnhardt Jr. was named NASCAR’s most popular driver for the ninth consecutive year. Earnhardt’s string of most-popular-driver awards is only one shy of Bill Elliott’s record 10 straight titles. Elliott won the award 16 times overall and won 10 straight from 1991 through 2000. He then asked to not be included any more in the voting. Earnhardt thanked fans in accepting the award, and said he was glad they voted before the season finale at Homestead.

Iditarod • 6 former champs in field for 2012 Iditarod: Musher John Baker blazed from Anchorage to Nome in record time in the 2011 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race and will be back to defend his crown in March. Iditarod officials said Thursday that Baker is one of 69 mushers, including six former champions, who plan to compete in the 2012 race. Seven of the top 10 finishers and 23 of the top 30 from a year ago will return. The deadline for signup was Wednesday. As of Thursday morning, 65 mushers had completed entries and four others had filed incomplete entries or had sent them in by mail. Additional entries could be added if they’re postmarked by Nov. 30.

Late goal leads Predators over Canucks The Associated Press VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Mike Fisher scored his second goal of the game with 1:16 left, and the Nashville Predators beat Vancouver 6-5 on Thursday night to snap Canucks backup goalie Cory Schneider’s five-game winning streak. Fisher went to the net and backhanded a centering pass from Martin Erat over a sprawling Roberto Luongo, who replaced Schneider in the high-scoring game. David Legwand, Shea Weber, Jordin Tootoo and Colin Wilson also scored for the Predators. Cody Hodgson, Daniel Sedin, Aaron Volpatti, Alex Burrows and Jannick Hansen had goals for the Canucks (14-10-1). Schneider, who gets sporadic starts behind Luongo, was pulled following the first period after giving up three goals on five shots. Nashville’s Pekka Rinne had it almost as rough, and was replaced by Anders Lindback after the Canucks took a 5-3 lead in the second period. Lindback made several key saves in the third period and stopped all 19 shots he faced. Schneider was in goal for a seventh straight game, a run that included back-to-back shutouts, as coach Alain Vigneault decided to ride the hot hand. Schneider had allowed only four goals during his winning streak. Luongo was cleared to play five games ago after recovering from an undisclosed upper body injury sustained on Nov. 13. The Predators (12-9-4), who had scored only five goals in four games, won for the second time in three games. Legwand and Fisher scored on Nashville’s first two shots,

and Weber made it 3-1 before the first period ended. Two of the goals came on the power play. Legwand scored his sixth of the season on the Predators’ first power play, snapping Colin Wilson’s pass behind Schneider. Fisher doubled the lead by lofting a backhander over Schneider’s arm.

Kentucky gets big win over St. John’s The Associated Press LEXINGTON, Ky. — Anthony Davis had no idea just how close he was to a tripledouble. It was just a dominating night for the Kentucky freshman. Davis scored 15 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and had eight of a school-record 18 blocks in the top-ranked Wildcats’ 81-59 victory over St. John’s on Thursday night. “He changed everything about the game,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “He blocked shots, he scored baskets, he rebounded tough rebounds, he came up with balls.” Terrence Jones added 26 points and nine rebounds for the Wildcats (7-0), who head into a highly anticipated showdown with No. 5 North Carolina on Saturday on a high note after a stalwart defensive performance. “We did our job on defense. They were kind of rattled,” Davis said. “When we lock down defensively, we’re a great defensive team. If we keep playing defense like we are right now, we’ll be fine.” Davis blocked four shots before the first timeout, and Kentucky set the team record with Eloy Vargas’ swat with 2:42 to go. Davis finished one block short of tying the individual mark of nine set by Sam Bowie in 1981 and matched by Andre Riddick in 1993. “It’s like shooting over a tower,” St. John’s guard Nurideen Lindsey said. “He was blocking shots all over the place.

Panthers win first game for new coach

Rob Kerr / The Bulletin

The Cougars’ offensive line has helped Mountain View average 6.1 yards per rush. From left to right are, Nick Gentry, Dylan Johnson, Nick Thompson, Brian Chapman (center), Matt Miller, Chad Bach and Justin Warren.

Paving Continued from D1 “We had a lot of inexperience there with the guys up front. But they took it as a challenge, the coaches and kids,” he added. Mountain View’s new-look offensive and defensive lines have more than stepped up to the challenge. Heading into Saturday’s Class 5A state final, the Cougars are averaging 228 yards per game rushing on offense and eight different Mountain View players have scored touchdowns on the ground this season. Cougar runners have totaled 2,242 yards rushing while averaging 6.1 yards per carry. Defensively, Mountain View has held its opponents to 13.9 points per game while forcing 16 turnovers and recording 20 sacks, in large part because of its defensive line play. “We had some really good linemen last year,” says senior guard and defensive lineman Nick Thompson. “There were some big shoes to fill, but I think we filled ’em all right.” Senior Dylan Johnson, a 6-foot-3-inch, 250pound three-year starter at tackle, was the Cougars’ lone full-time starter back on the offensive line this season, but several of his fellow linemen entered 2011 with some varsity experience. Thompson had started at tight end last year before a broken leg sidelined him for the second half of the season. “I just went from blocking on the outside to the inside,” Thompson says about the change of positions. “I was pretty much just a blocking tight end. They threw to me like once last year.” Matt Miller, an all-league first-team selection this season at guard, started on the offensive line in the 2010 playoffs and also saw lots of time at linebacker last year, receiving allleague honorable mention on defense. Junior tackle Chad Bach, another first-team selection this year, and senior center Brian Chapman, who received all-league honorable mention in 2011, played varsity football for the first time this year. Senior Nick Gentry, who was named to the all-IMC first team this year as a tight end and outside linebacker, also made his first varsity contributions this season. “You look at them, and they’re tall, but not big,” Turner says about his offensive linemen. “They’re quick, but not fast, but very athletic. Dylan Johnson is a three-sport athlete. Nick Gentry plays basketball, Nick Thompson plays basketball, Chapman wrestles. Matt Miller is another three-sport guy. These kids know how to compete.” On the defensive line, Johnson (39 tackles, including one quarterback sack) and senior

Bulletin staff report SPRINGFIELD — Jon Corbett’s first game coaching at Redmond High could hardly have gone better. Locked into a tight boys basketball contest with Class 6A Special District 1 opponent Thurston, the Panthers made four of five free throws in the final minute to pull away with a 51-48 road victory. “It feels good for me, but I’m really happy for the boys,” Corbett said. “It gives them a real shot of confidence.” A great thing for a squad that went 9-15 overall last season. The Colts, who finished 20-6 in 2010-11, were, according to Corbett, bigger and stronger than Redmond. “It was a physical battle,” he said. “Those kids held their own.” Thurston (0-1 SD1, 0-1 overall) led 29-25 at halftime and led by as many as 10 points in the third quarter. Undeterred, the Panthers kept up their defensive pressure and made timely baskets, outscoring the Colts 17-9 in the final period. Senior wing Tanner Manselle led Redmond with 22 points and 18 rebounds. Matt Dahlen was the only other Panther in double figures, scoring 10 points and making all six of his free throws. Redmond (1-0 SD1, 1-0)

Mountain View (1-0 overall) plays at Grants Pass today, SWIMMING Panthers start season strong SALEM — The Redmond girls placed sixth and the boys finished fifth out of eight teams at the Central Valley Conference Relay meet at the Salem Kroch Center. Redmond coach Chelsey Holmberg said the event gave her athletes a chance to swim in the pool where districts will be held. On the girls side, the Panthers placed second in the 200-yard medley relay, 200-backstroke relay, 400medley relay and 200-butterfly relay. Redmond will compete Thursday at the Madras Invitational.

PREP SCOREBOARD Hayden Czmowski (51 tackles, four sacks) both received all-league honors. Thompson and Justin Warren have combined for seven sacks this season from their defensive line positions. The Cougars’ defensive front played one of its best games of the season last Friday in Mountain View’s 31-14 semifinal victory over Marist. Thompson and Warren each posted a sack against the Spartans as Mountain View harassed Marist quarterback Kamerun Smith all night, helping force two interceptions while Smith completed just 10 of 30 passes. “We’ve got guys that are fast and extremely quick,” says Johnson about the Cougars’ defensive line. “None of us are over 250 pounds but no one is under 200. We’re right in the middle of that sweet spot.” Mountain View’s defense as a whole will have its work cut out Saturday in the Cougars’ rematch with Sherwood. The Bowmen, masters of the run-oriented wing-T offense, have rushed for almost 4,500 yards this season while averaging 8.9 yards per carry. “Different concerns this week,” Johnson says, comparing Marist with Sherwood. “Marist passed something like 83 percent of the time. It’s basically a night-and-day difference between the two teams.” The way the Cougars have been playing lately, though, on offense and defense, no one will be shocked if the results are the same.

Choi up three at World Challenge The Associated Press THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — K.J. Choi opened with five straight birdies. Tiger Woods looked as good as he did in Australia, making his fourth birdie with a 3-iron to an elevated green on the par-5 fifth that covered the flag. And then, without warning, the wind showed up Thursday in the foothills of Sherwood Country Club. Choi held his own in gusts up to 30 mph and finished with a 6-under 66, giving him a three-shot lead over Woods and Steve Stricker in the Chevron World Challenge. They were the only three players to break 70 in the 18man field in the final official event in America this year. “Anything under par is a good day today with the wind up,” said Woods, a four-time winner of this event and the tournament host. “If the wind stayed down, you’re going to have to shoot probably 68 or below for it to be a good score.” Five of the six players who broke par — Jim Furyk, Nick Watney and Rickie Fowler were at 71 — had most recently played at blustery Royal Melbourne in the Presidents Cup. Choi figures he had even a greater advantage. He lives in Dallas. “I was used to playing in the windy conditions, not only

playing in Melbourne, but also living in Dallas, where there’s 20- to 30-mile wind every other day,” Choi said. “I’m used to practicing in those conditions. I’ve become very comfortable in those windy conditions.” The notorious Santa Ana wind was in the forecast, with some projections of 60 mph gusts. But when the elite field arrived at Sherwood, there was not even a breeze. Woods and Stricker birdied the opening two holes with relative ease. Woods added another birdie

on No. 4 with a 25-foot putt, and then came his 3-iron from 229 yards to 18 feet for an eagle attempt that burned the edge. In other Thursday events: Two tied for lead in Sun City SUN CITY, South Africa — Defending champion Lee Westwood made a 20-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 4-under 68 and a share of the lead with Masters winner Charl Schwartzel in the Nedbank Golf Challenge. McIlroy in hunt in Hong Kong HONG KONG — U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy shot a 6-under 64 in blustery conditions for share of the lead with Alvaro Quiros and David Horsey in the Hong Kong Open. Claxton on top at qualifier LA QUINTA, Calif. — Will Claxton shot a 2-under 70 in windy conditions to take a one-stroke lead over Matt Jones and Harris English after the second round of the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. The top 25 in the six-round event at PGA West will earn 2012 PGA Tour cards. Song takes second-round lead DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Christine Song shot a 2under 70 in windy conditions on LPGA International’s Legends Course to take a twostroke lead over Stephanie Kono after the second round of the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament.

USC QB mulls decision By Greg Beacham

NBA players get win, and always will K

yle Singler’s NBA draft rights may belong to Detroit, but his body will be playing pro basketball this season in Spain, where the 10-day forecast calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s and his new team, Real Madrid, will pay him better than the Pistons would. Small wonder Singler isn’t rushing back to the Motor City, even if the lockout is over. Deron Williams, on the other hand, is already back in New Jersey after a brief stint playing in Turkey, where his team, Besiktas, retired his No. 8 jersey and no doubt would have erected a statue in his honor had Williams stuck around. But Nets fans should be careful about falling head over heels for the guy. His agent just told the club that because of a new rule in the still-to-beratified collective bargaining agreement, Williams is going to opt out of his contract at the end of the shortened season — if only to squeeze another year and $30 million more from the Nets after the new labor deal is in place. If anybody still harbored doubts about who won the lockout battle, those two examples are a good place to start. The NBA was, is and — despite the new agreement — will forevermore be a players’ league, simply because there’s too few of them to go around. According to the latest Forbes’ rankings, there’s nearly twice as many billionaires around the globe (937), and almost as many residing in the United States (403), as there are NBA-caliber players (roughly 450), let alone real superstars (a dozen). And since each of the league’s 30 franchises needs at least one of them — preferably two or three — to make money, there’s no question where the leverage lies. To be fair to Commissioner David Stern and his owners, they did slow the rate of spending. They got a much better cut of the basketball-related income, about 50 percent annually versus a high of 57 percent in some years under the old deal, and increased the luxury tax. They get to bury some mistakes under the amnesty clause. They even got a few concessions, making it easier for the have-nots to make a shrewd pickup occasionally and hang onto their own players at every stage of their careers — whether it’s a still-blossoming youngster like the Bulls’ Derrick Rose, a mid-level exception like Shane Battier or a proven veteran like Williams. To do that, the have-nots will need to spend more money. Smarts alone will not close the gap between clubs like the Kings, which spent $46 million last season, and the Lakers, who dropped $110 million. The owners knew that going in. Besides, short of getting rid of free agency, the NBA can only do so much to restrict players from landing where they want. Even the NFL, which is every team owner’s dream of how a pro sports league should be run — hard salary cap, franchise tag and revenue-sharing — hasn’t been able to do that. But because no single NFL player can shift a team’s fortunes the way Kevin Durant did almost single-handedly in Oklahoma City, there will always be more wheeling and dealing in the NBA. The owners knew that going in, too. That’s why the whirlwind free-agent signing flurry and the season — even in the compressed time frame — will look familiar. More superstars will try to hook up with their pals in the bright lights of the big-market cities, the way LeBron James and Chris Bosh did by moving to Miami and Carmelo Anthony did by relocating to New York. If reports are true, Chris Paul’s agent is already pricing flights for his client from New Orleans to the Big Apple. Next, ask yourself how much longer Dwight Howard wants to stay in Orlando to try to win a championship by himself, as opposed to moving to, say, Los Angeles, and kicking the ball out to Kobe Bryant on the perimeter. To make those moves, the players would have to take a haircut — let’s say Paul gets $60 million long-term from the Knicks, vs. $70 million to stay in New Orleans. And the clubs that sign them would have to pay additional luxury taxes. But if you think either of those factors will be a real drag on player movement — check out the soaring stock price on Madison Square Garden Co. since the tentative deal was reached — you haven’t been paying attention. Plus, Stern’s unceasing effort the past two decades to globalize the game has brought with it increased competition. But the players better be careful what they wish for. While Singler is only too happy to stay in Spain, NBA free agents Wilson Chandler, J.R. Smith, Patty Mills, Kenyon Martin and Aaron Brooks may wind up languishing in China. They all signed to play in the Chinese Basketball Association ahead of the lockout and chances are good they’re stuck there for the season, proving what goes around sometimes comes around, too.

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Matt Barkley can’t walk 50 yards on the Southern California campus without getting career advice. The quarterback is trying to take a week off to relax and reflect on his remarkable junior season, even rising a bit later than his usual 4:45 a.m. for his daily weightlifting session, but everybody has an opinion about the decision looming in his near future. “Usually it’s, ‘One more year,’ that’s what I hear,” Barkley said. And he hears it from everybody. Students in Robert Scheer’s Communications 310 class passed around a petition demanding Barkley’s return, a stunt that made Barkley laugh while he showed it to people on his iPhone. He gets input from the oldest alumni to the youngest fans, including a kid named Julian who sent him a photo and a sternly worded letter. “Dear: Matt Barkley. I want you to stay on the USC football team just one more season.” Barkley is genuinely conflicted about his decision. He is tantalized by the fame and fortune of an NFL career, but his heart and head are still in the college game. Although he rooted for Drew Bledsoe’s New England Patriots because of his grandparents’ Boston roots, Barkley is a college football guy right down to his childhood collection of USC jerseys. His specific childhood dreams didn’t really extend beyond leading the Trojans out of the Coliseum tunnel. “I was all about USC growing up,” Barkley told The Associated Press during an interview outside Heritage Hall. “I just think there’s more to the college game, with the students and the alumni. I love everything about it. ... I do feel loved here. This student body and this campus are really something special to me. The spirit here and everything about it, I love it. They really care.” Although Lane Kiffin has been teasing Barkley about returning for his senior season since the day he took the job nearly two years ago, the USC coach says Barkley is more than ready for the NFL, figuring he would be a top-10 draft pick after every team evaluates his strong arm, impressive poise and leadership skills. Barkley has demonstrated that leadership ever since the Trojans were leveled by hefty sanctions, emerging as the face of a program that has cycled through school presidents, athletic directors and coaching staffs since he arrived on campus. “I know it sounds weird, but I look up to Matt Barkley,” Kiffin said. “Matt Barkley has been through a lot of adversity now. For a kid, 19 I believe, to go in front of (the media) when basically all his dreams about football were taken away — no bowl games, transfers sanctions, new president, new head coach, new athletic director — how many 39-year-olds could handle that, let alone 19-year-olds? He’s just unbelievable.” Barkley embraced the leadership role, figuring he could learn skills that will help him in the NFL. But he also put together a spectacular junior season that left his mark throughout the Trojans’ record book. He set a conference record with 39 touchdown passes, broke the school’s single-season completion percentage mark (69.1), threw a school-record six TD passes in a game twice — and did it all while leading the ninthranked Trojans (10-2, 7-2 Pac-12) to seven wins in their final eight games, finishing on top of the Pac-12 South standings and rising to their highest ranking since before the sanctions. Barkley finished with 3,528 yards passing, 308 completions — one shy of the school record — and just seven interceptions. As a student of USC football history, Barkley believes his job wasn’t as tough as the work done by Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer, who led the Trojans back to elite status a decade ago under coach Pete Carroll. “USC was at one of the brightest points in this program’s history when we came in, and then it goes downhill quickly,” he said. “We were part of one of the dark-

Pac-12 Continued from D1 “I believe our plan is a good one. Now the devil will be in the details, making sure we do all the little things right, because that’s what it’s going to take to beat a team as accomplished as Oregon,” Neuheisel said. “I know there’s no such thing as a perfect game, but we’re going to have to get darn close, and that’s an exciting challenge, especially given the stakes.” The Ducks are playing for their third straight conference championship and a spot in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 2. Oregon appeared to be in the running for a shot at a spot in the BCS title game for the second straight season, but the Ducks also fell victim to USC with a 38-35 loss at Autzen on Nov. 19. The Ducks were trying hard this week not to overlook the Bruins on the road to Pasadena. “Not at all, because we’re not in the Rose Bowl yet,” Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas said. “We got a big game this week and if we go off looking to the Rose Bowl we might not make it there.” Thomas anchors an offense that is putting up big numbers again this season. The Ducks are averaging 510.58 yards per game in total offense, sixth in the nation. They are fifth in rushing offense with an average of 291 yards, and third in scoring with an average of 45.9 points per game. Thomas himself has 27 touchdown passes with just five interceptions this season. The junior is just two touchdowns short of Danny O’Neil’s career record of 62 with the Ducks from 1991 to 1994. Running back LaMichael James is the nation’s top rusher with an average of 142.7 yards a game. A Heisman Trophy finalist last season as a sophomore, James fell out of the running for the most part this season because he missed two games with a dislocated right elbow.

Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley is trying to decide if he wants to stay in school or take his talents to the NFL.

est periods of USC football. I think to be part of the team that brought it out, that helped resurrect USC football and turn it into a positive again, was definitely something I’ll cherish here.” The Trojans’ 50-0 obliteration of UCLA last weekend certainly seemed to be an apt farewell. He left the game to a standing ovation in the final seconds, and he climbed onto a stepladder afterward to direct the marching band. A spot among the Heisman Trophy finalists would be another fitting cap to the year, and Barkley is eager to find out Monday whether he’s headed to New York for the presentation ceremony. He isn’t interested in promoting himself for the trip, instead directing that spotlight to the USC offense’s phenomenal finish to the year — scoring at least 30 points apiece in its final 10 games, including 226 points in the final five. “My team has helped me get to where I am, and the way we’ve played definitely deserves recognition,” Barkley said. “The way we’re playing right now, I think we could play anyone in the country. We could line up wherever it is and go head-to-head with anyone.” Barkley filed for an evaluation from the NFL’s draft advisory board this week, a standard move for juniors considering the NFL jump. He’ll consult with everyone from agents to his former high school coaches, with maybe even a call to Carroll in Seattle, although “I don’t know if that’s legal or not.” Until then, he’s trying to enjoy school, where he’s still a few classes short of his degree. His younger brother and sister enrolled at USC this year, and he relishes the chance to play big brother at lunch or his apartment. And if he decides to leave in the next few weeks, Barkley won’t feel any regret about goals he couldn’t reach. “Those were things that were outside of our control,” he said. “I really believe we made the best of it. Maybe some goals were left unmet, national championships and all the stuff I grew up watching USC football as, but not something that I’ll latch onto and hold as a regret, or something I’ll feel bad about, because I think we made the most of our situation.”

Neutralizing Autzen The Pac-12 is taking steps to transform the University of Oregon’s Autzen Stadium — regarded as one of the country’s toughest venues for visiting teams — into a more neutral setting for its inaugural conference championship game. According to a UO sports information department release, those measures include: • Graphics both inside and outside of the stadium will feature both the Ducks and the Bruins, with a new wrap on the walls surrounding the playing field adding to the championship atmosphere. • Paul Olden, public address announcer for the New York Yankees and for 12 Super Bowls, will serve as lead PA. Don Essig, Oregon’s longtime PA announcer, is expected to have a complementary role. • The Duck Vision video board will include highlights featuring both Oregon and UCLA, including a 90-second presentation at 5:05 p.m., during which both teams will return to the field from their locker rooms.

UCLA, ranked 84th in the nation among FBS teams in total defense, is ranked 10th in the Pac-12 in rushing defense, allowing 178 yards per game. The Bruins have proven this season that they have been able to rebound after big losses, recording wins in each game after falling to Stanford, Arizona and Utah. But they are not taking any solace in that stat. “Obviously we know the pattern the season has gone by,” said UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince. “We know that when we’ve had losses, and bad losses, we’ve been able to bounce back strong. We’re also

aware that Oregon is a good opponent, and it’s not going to be easy. Just because we’ve done it in the past doesn’t mean we’re going to be able to do it again.” Oregon is favored by 31 points in the game, which appears to be affecting interest among fans. Tickets listed on StubHub! were being offered for below market value this week. The addition of Colorado and Utah to the Pac-12 paved the way for a league championship game this season. In previous years, the team with the best conference record claimed the title. While USC (10-2, 7-2) finished atop the Pac-12 South, the Trojans are ineligible to play in the postseason because of NCAA sanctions, which paved the way for UCLA to play in the inaugural title game. “It’s a little weird,” Prince said. “Obviously things didn’t go the way we wanted. We would have preferred to make the championship game by winning it outright, but the situation has presented itself where we can do what we set out to do, which is win a Pac-12 championship.” This week, the NCAA ruled that the Bruins can accept a bowl invitation even if they lose to Oregon. Because of Neuheisel’s dismissal, offensive coordinator Mike Johnson will take over if UCLA ends up in a bowl game. The Bruins have reached just one bowl game in the past three seasons. Athletic director Dan Guerrero said he wants to reward the Bruins’ 18 seniors by going to a bowl even while the program is in upheaval. What remains to be seen is how the Bruins themselves will respond against the Ducks at Autzen. “If they want to go a different route, that’s fine, but he’s my coach,” UCLA running back Derrick Coleman said of Neuheisel. “He’s been through a lot. He’s taught me a lot while I was here, and we want to make sure we go out there and play hard for him one more time.”






Battles Continued from D1 He has not seen them in nearly three years, according to Jewell, and he fled to the Netherlands as the civilian and military courts argued over jurisdiction of his alleged crimes. Jewell — who served in the Air Force with her ex-husband — said she declined child support in order to ensure that he would be granted no visitation rights. With the two-year custody battle behind her, Jewell said her daughters are “doing really good now,” and that psychiatrists have told her that they likely will forget the abuse they suffered. Having made it through such a horrid personal struggle should help Jewell in the octagon cage Saturday night against Kelly Vilarino, a fighter from Medford. “It does bring it out in me because I became a victim … the things he did to me and the things he did to my girls,” Jewell said. “And I want to change that. And that’s a big point of me fighting now, is not being a victim and standing up for myself and my girls and what I believe in, and what’s right and wrong.” Mixed martial arts, or MMA, is an often violent combat sport that includes elements of boxing, kickboxing, judo, wrestling, karate, jiujitsu and other disciplines. Fights end by knockout, by submission (tap out), or by referee stoppage. Jewell’s father, Shawn Jewell, owned a martial arts studio in Bend while she was growing up, and Crystal took up taekwondo as a youngster. Shawn was a competitive kickboxer and mixed martial arts fighter for 16 years. Crystal is now following in his footsteps, training with her father at Acrovision Sports Center in Bend. “I’ve watched her go through an awful lot,” Shawn says of his daughter. “I think she’s more prepared (to fight) this time. She’s safe and the kids are safe. She can really focus on the training.” Jewell took up MMA two years ago, and she admits she was unprepared for her first two fights. “I didn’t know what I was getting myself into,” Jewell admitted. “My dad was a fighter, so I thought I could just get in there and do it too. Mentally, I wasn’t ready to fight. “When it came down to being able to push myself, I held back

because I wanted to put my girls first. That’s hard to do for a fight, when you have priorities like that. I needed to get all that done and out of the way, and then dedicate myself to this.” Wanting to take time to train and work through her personal battles, Jewell has not fought in nearly a year. “I wanted to train first … get my head together and know what I’m getting myself into this time,” she said. “The more I learn, the more I realize what I don’t know. I love the sport itself — not just fighting, but learning everything that’s involved with it.” Paul Heatherman, the promoter of Budo Fights and Budo Boxing (bag training at Bend Martial Arts), said he sees a future for Jewell in MMA. “The audience just froze when they saw her fight last year,” Heatherman recalled. “I think most of the audience was shocked that women can fight that hard. It was amazing — not just with intensity, but with skill. Not in a hair-pulling way or a scratching way, but a real technical MMA fight way.” Heatherman has put women’s fights on the card for most Budo Fights events staged in Bend. He knows they draw men who simply want to see women fight. But he also sees developing skill and technique in the female fighters. “I think many people have a perception that if it’s a girl, they don’t know what they’re doing,” Heatherman explained. “When

you see how they really fight, they’re as good as the guys in terms of technique. It’s kind of an image-shattering notion.” Jewell, who works in retail sales at Leather Works in Sisters, said women should not be treated any differently from the men who compete in mixed martial arts. “We equally love the sport,” she said. “I dedicate myself more than most men I’ve seen who do it.” Jewell met her current boyfriend, Josh Spencer, through MMA training. Spencer has faced off with Jewell’s brother, Josh Jewell, twice. Spencer, who also will fight this Saturday night, said he is amazed by what his girlfriend has overcome. “She’s a very strong person,” Spencer said. “I have a lot of respect and envy of her to be able to be a great mom and still train and work. She’s made leaps and bounds mentally. I think she’s definitely ready to fight now.” Jewell said she often brings a portable crib with her to Acrovision, so her daughters can watch her train and she can keep an eye on them in between punching the bag and sparring. She said the girls have not grasped the “full gravity” of MMA fighting, but they know the difference between winning and losing. “And I’m trying to teach them about … basically, just fighting for yourself,” Jewell said. “That’s the lesson I want to teach them.” — Reporter: 541-383-0318, mmorical@

IN BRIEF Kids with more toys play longer Researchers from the University of Buffalo found that when kids 8-12 had more toys to choose from, their play time and heart rates increased. The study involved children who were given either one, three or five toys to play with during 60 minutes. The overall play time increased by 95 percent when kids had either three or five toys. The intensity of play was particularly elevated in girls who had multiple toy options. The researchers concluded that providing choices could be key to helping increase activity levels among children, particularly girls.

Bullying affects students’ GPA A new study from Ohio State shows that students who are victims of bullying end up with a sliding academic record. The grade point average of students who were bullied in 10th grade slipped by 12th grade. The slide was more dramatic for black students, who lost one-third of a grade point after being bullied; Latino students lost half a grade point (the equivalent of going from a 3.5 GPA to 3.0). This study was based on more than 9,000 students in 580 schools and included controls for factors such as family background and school characteristics.

• Flying with kids has become an increasingly costly, grueling ordeal

Parents have misperceptions of teen’s drug use Parents have mismatched perceptions when it comes to teenagers and their use of drugs and alcohol, according to new information from the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health. While just 10 percent of parents believe their teens have used alcohol during the past year and 5 percent believe their kids used marijuana, more than 50 percent of 10th-graders report drinking and 28 percent report smoking pot in the past year. Furthermore, parents are much more likely to believe that other teenagers are using these substances. Parents believe 60 percent have drunk and 40 percent have smoked pot. The bottom line: Parents are more likely to believe other teens are using substances than truly are, but are less likely to believe their own children are using.

urely they could spare a little milk, right? But when John and Mary Rose Lin, of Jersey City, N.J., ran out of milk for their 18-month-old twins on a recent Continental flight from Newark to Maui, the flight attendant onboard refused to give them more. That particular beverage, the Lins recall being told, was for coffee, not children. “I was not asking for a full bottle, just a cup,” said Mary Rose Lin, noting that she even offered to pay for the milk. It was the low point of an altogether arduous trip. Her children are active, and efforts to allow them to move around the cabin were not welcomed by the plane’s staff. The misery of air travel is no surprise to anyone who has boarded a domestic flight in the last five years. As airlines have maximized capacity and slashed services, passengers have learned to brace themselves for packed planes, stuffed overhead bins, harried flight attendants and fees for everything from pretzels to pillows. On top of that, delays and cancellations are up. For families, however, the costs and the inconveniences are compounded. At a time when resorts, cruise lines and tour operators are courting junior guests as if they were celebrity VIPs, flying with

Is the airline child-friendly? Here’s a look at what to expect from a range of U.S. carriers on domestic flights.


children has become an increasingly costly, “Survivor”-like ordeal. Baggage fees? Start multiplying. Early boarding? Probably not. Hoping to sit together? Don’t count on it (unless you’ve paid extra). A few empty seats where a child can spread out and nap? Good luck with that.

The good ol’ days It wasn’t always like this, of course. In the golden age of flying in the 1960s and ’70s — the one now being so lovingly burnished by ABC’s “Pan Am” — families could expect to be the first ones on the plane. They would then be greeted by smiling flight attendants bearing miniature pilot wings for children who would be treated to a tour of the cockpit before settling into their seats. And even as recently as a few years ago, families could count on a handful of common courtesies like boarding before other passengers, landing a roomier seat in the first row of coach, bringing certain strollers on board, and even being able to get milk on board. “We used to carry five to six cartons of milk on each flight for coach,” said Elaine Sweeney, 58, a flight attendant with American for more than 30 years. But that was five or so years ago. To traveling families, the erosion of such niceties is just an indirect way of suggesting they take the bus. See Flying / E6

Preboarding: No. Families can ask the gate agent or pay $10 a person to guarantee a spot in the first boarding group. Seating: Bulkhead seats toward the front of coach are reserved for elite passengers or sold as “preferred seats” 24 hours before departure starting at $4. Kids’ meals: Sells “kid-friendly choices” like $10 turkey sandwiches with chips. Entertainment: Free child-friendly movies on overhead TVs on most flights longer than four hours. Stroller gate check: Yes, except noncollapsibles or those over 20 pounds.

DELTA Preboarding: Yes (no age limit), ahead of first and business class. Seating: Bulkhead seats may be available for families 24 hours before departure. Kids’ meals: $4.50 “Kids PB&J plate” served with fruit and vegetables. Entertainment: Last year, Delta brought back the kiddie pilot wings. On flights with seatback TVs, Delta offers 16 On Demand children’s TV programs ($1 per episode or $6 for a bundle). Some flights have Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network (free). Stroller gate check: Yes See Friendly / E6

Books help teens harness talent in time for holidays

Editor’s Note: The Bulletin’s Family section profiles local organizations designed to help families once a month. To suggest an organization, contact Alandra Johnson at ajohnson or 541-617-7860.

The Stylish Stork founder Karin Windlinx and fellow volunteer Danny Looney are passionate about helping families in need.

By Alandra Johnson The Bulletin

Walking into The Stylish Stork, one would assume it is a typical secondhand kids’ shop. The clean, bright store is filled with used — and some new — clothes, toys and equipment for infants and children. But this place is much more. It is a charity dedicated to helping Central Oregon families in need. Every week, the shop organizers give away hundreds of dollars in merchandise to area families. The amount fluctuates, depending on the amount of clothing and toy donations they receive and how much money comes in through retail sales. “I didn’t want to be a store, I wanted

to be an outreach to the community,” said founder Karin Windlinx. She shares numerous examples of families helped by The Stylish Stork. Recently, a truck driver with four kids ages 8 and younger came in. His wife had just left the family and he didn’t have much money. He left the store with more than six large bags of clothes for free.

Fellow volunteer Danny Looney remembers a dad who came into the store recently and was looking at some Strawberry Shortcake items to give to his daughter for her birthday. Looney could tell the man was hurting and he left empty-handed, but not before Looney got the man’s name and address. See Stork / E6

Kid Culture features fun and educational books and toys for kids. The most touching gifts are the ones that are handmade and given by someone close to you. With the holidays fast approaching and with money tight, many teens will welcome ideas to use their talents to create gifts with their hands. Here are two of the many books Deschutes Public Library system offers with ideas for teens to craft. “The Crafty Diva’s Lifestyle Makeover: Awesome Ideas to Spice up Your Life,” by Kathy Cano Murillo Though billed as a lifestyle makeover, this book contains more than 50 crafting projects that would make treasured Submitted photo gifts. Teens will love making home-sewn journal covers, oatmeal masks and bath salts, and locker decorations for friends. Crafty teens will have hours of fun making the perfect gifts. See Books / E6

Exploring ‘grown-folk’ relationships “ T y ler Perry’s For Better or Worse� 10 tonight, TBS

Sentinel film critic Roger Moore, should be used along with the Motion Picture Association of America rating system for selecting movies suitable for children.

CHICAGO — Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith didn’t have much time to rehearse for their roles as a married couple on TBS’ upcoming dramedy “Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse� — they taped one episode per day, whereas most shows tape an episode per week — but they likely didn’t need it. White and Smith are reprising their roles from the Tyler Perry movies “Why Did I Get Married?� and “Why Did I Get Married Too?� And besides, they used to date in real life. Not that this should be cause for concern among their real-life spouses: White and Smith said the four of them are friends and chat regularly. Smith has even been known to call White’s wife, who is a doctor, with personal health questions. “Our spouses are amazingly secure,� White said in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Chicago hotel earlier this month. “I think my wife was excited about it. ... If you saw my wife, Tasha and myself and you didn’t know us, you might think that Tasha was my wife. Tasha and I might be a little more affectionate. My wife is really cool. She loves watching the energy between Tasha and I.� On “For Better or Worse,� which debuted Friday, White and Smith play the cast’s lone married couple. The two other couples in the cast are

Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith star as spouses on the TBS dramedy “Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse.�

TV SPOTLIGHT either dating or engaged. The show is “Diary of a Mad Black Woman� director/star Perry’s third series along with TBS sitcoms “House of Payne� and “Meet the Browns.� “There’s no laugh track,� Smith said. “And it’s stylized in a different way. I think it’s a more mature part of Tyler Perry, as far as relationships are concerned. It’s not a family show. It’s an adult show about relationships. This is grownfolk business.� White believes the show can delve deeper into social commentary than “House of Payne� or “Meet the Browns� because it is a dramedy rather than a traditional sitcom. He describes the show as a halfhour version of a Perry movie. Though Perry, whom Forbes named the highest-paid man

in entertainment in 2011, opted not to brand the TV show with the “Why Did I Get Married?� title, but he did once again attach his name to the title. What can the Perry name do for a project? “There’s a pedigree there,� White said. “People know Tyler Perry, and there are standards they’ve come to expect from him. His brand is uplifting and it’s something a lot of inner-city African-Americans can relate to. It’s going to have his voice and faith, which is what he’s come to be recognized for.�

A   & A 

Mom fears her future plans have cast a pall on present Dear Abby: A while back I told my family I was considering downsizing my life and made the big mistake of telling them I want them to eventually have my house. I also revealed the contents of my will. Now I feel exposed, uncomfortable and vulnerable — possibly even a bit paranoid that they might want to have me “six feet under� sooner than I should be. I don’t think I am ready to move yet, but I have gotten my family’s hopes up. I did talk to one of them and felt reassured at the time, but I still sense that there’s a change in how they perceive me and all of our futures now. How can I undo the damage, knowing I have to make sure I have enough money to live on as well as provide for them when I’m gone? — Foot-in-mouth, Massachusetts Dear F-IN-M: Two of the most sensitive subjects to discuss are death and money, and you deserve praise for having started the conversation. I disagree that making your intentions known instead of having them transmitted during a reading of your will was a mistake. Because you feel there may have been a misunderstanding, call a family meeting and clarify your message. Tell them your health is great, you have no plans to move in the near future and plan to live a long and happy life. Dear Abby: My mother lives in an assisted living community in the memory care unit. During a recent visit, I became upset because the care staff addressed my mom as “Granny,� “Grandma,� “Mamma,� etc. Mother struggles with the time of day, the day of the week and sometimes forgets who we are — so I don’t see the benefit of using names other than her own. I think it is disrespectful, unacceptable

DEAR ABBY and unprofessional. When I asked the attendant to please address Mom as “Mrs. Smith� or “Ms. Ann,� she laughed and said, “Granny wouldn’t know who I was talking to if I called her by those names.� My siblings and I took this issue to the director, who told us we shouldn’t be hurt and that the staff was showing our mom she is loved. — She Has a Name in Georgia Dear She Has A Name: Not knowing the national origin of the attendants in your mother’s care unit I can’t be certain, but what you encountered may be a cultural difference. In other cultures, calling someone “Mama,� “Auntie� or “Grandma� is considered respectful. While it made YOU uncomfortable, if it didn’t have that effect on your mother, you should take your cue from the director of the facility. However, because you have formally requested that your mother be addressed by name, then that is what should be done in the future. Dear Abby: When my husband and I are out together, he strides out ahead of me and calls back, “Catch up!� or “Keep up!� I am not creeping along but walking at my own (reasonable) pace. I think he should either slow down or let me walk behind him and not expect me to run after him at his command. What do you think? — Likes To Smell the Roses In Tennessee Dear Likes To Smell The Roses: Unless your husband is a Marine drill sergeant, I think you’re right. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Friday, Dec. 2, 2011 By Jacqueline Bigar This year learning how to express your not-so-nice feelings effectively and not threaten others will become easy. You will put in a significant effort to reach this place. You often are irritated with bosses and authority figures. If you are single, you easily could tumble into a lovehate relationship. Take your time. If you are attached, your vision of your life might be much different from your sweetie’s. Don’t judge. Try different styles. PISCES can be challenging. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Understand that you might be feeling the undercurrents of other people’s unacknowledged feelings. Others could be acting out. Curb your temper, and establish strong and sturdy limits. You will gain if you can be nonreactive. Can you? Tonight: Maintain an unusually low profile. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Decide what is too much effort and what is reasonable. The problem lies in getting a group consensus. Don’t be surprised to see a couple of people flip their lid on the topic at hand. They feel passionately about the matter. Tonight: Only with pals. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Stay on top of work and demands. Pressure builds between you and others. You might wonder what is enough and when to let others know. Unless you like fireworks, the smart Twin won’t wait until the last minute before his or her fuse blows. Tonight: A must appearance. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH With as much anger being sprinkled left and right, you could be sarcastic or say something you might regret later. Clear the air as fast as possible. You don’t need a scene. Tonight: A very important talk over dinner. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Deal with people with whom you feel comfortable and from whom you can handle feedback. Anger seems to be the underlying tenet no matter who does what and no matter what others say. Ask yourself if someone is trying to cover something up. Let the cards fall naturally. No heroics. Tonight: Share over dinner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Others seem to be on

the warpath, but perhaps you are really the one sticking the pins in. Let someone know how you feel in a calm, quiet way. Creating uproar won’t result in a positive situation. Take a walk to clear your mind. Tonight: Listen to another version of the same story. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Walk right in. Once you’re energized, you’ll get a lot done. In a sense, by focusing on what you are doing, you are detaching from another situation. You need some distance here. Use your anger to motivate you, but not to cause a problem. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH You leap over hurdles. Your smile lures in whatever you want. A meeting could get a bit rough, as you share hostile words with another person. You know what you want — what is stopping you? If you are single or attached, romantic thoughts could occupy a good part of your day. Tonight: Frisky you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Understand that although you are feeling better than you have in a while, at times you could be caught between a rock and a hard place. Today exemplifies that issue. What determines the quality of the day is how you deal with this pressure. Tonight: Know that others are under the gun, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Of all signs, you can mobilize anger and use it to enhance a situation. Do just that, and let others see different ways of expressing rage. Communication flourishes, and what was difficult no longer is. Follow your instincts. Tonight: Meet a friend at a preferred place. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You need to move forward and not get hung up on someone’s disagreeable accusations or feelings. Indicate a willingness to discuss a problem, but not in the manner this person wants. Give this person space. He or she just might be discharging anger on you that belongs to another person. Tonight: Your treat. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You are feeling better than you have in a long time and may make a choice to proceed in a different direction. Others are disagreeable. You might want to settle someone’s issue, if possible; otherwise, give this person a wide berth. Tonight: Your night to howl! Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Flying Continued from E1 Not so, counter the airlines, it’s a matter of resources. U.S. carriers have lost about $55 billion over the course of the past decade, according to the Air Transport Association, as operational costs, like fuel and employee benefits, have outpaced revenues. Making up for those losses has meant cutting benefits and adding fees for everyone. And while we may miss the golden days of air travel, flights cost less now than they did then. Adjusting for inflation, the average round-trip domestic fare in 1979 was $559.31; last year it was $316.31. For families, in particular, that is a meaningful difference. More than anything else, said Michael Boyd, president of the Boyd Group International, an aviation consultancy, “families generally travel based on price.” Given the current economic climate and families’ desire for cheap flights, Boyd doesn’t expect things to improve soon. At best, he said, airlines “treat families like everybody else.” “If you get a good flight attendant they might help you warm the bottle,” he said. “Other than that, you’re on your own.” So for anyone planning to brave the indifferent skies with children this season, here are a few of the major sticking points and tips on how to navigate them.

No longer on board As little as four years ago, some airlines were still routinely calling families to board first. The idea was that getting children on early was not just a courtesy for families — who got extra time to settle in — but a benefit that improved boarding for everyone. The policy has been declining over several years. (Airline representatives all say that they allow families to board, if not first, then at least before coach passengers paying regular fare, but anecdotal reporting suggests otherwise.) What families can do: The only way to guarantee early boarding for your family is to buy it. Check with the airline to see what they offer. Short of that, explain to the gate agents why you would like to preboard and see if they can help.

My kids are 5 rows back! Planes are flying mostly full most of the time thanks to major capacity cuts over the past decade; during peak travel times empty seats are even harder to come by. For families, this means it is increasingly difficult to get seats together, a particular gripe for those who, like Sierra Black, have found themselves jockeying for seats onboard. Last February, US Airways placed Black and her two children, ages 5 and 2, in the center seats of three different rows in different parts of the plane for a five-hour flight to Tucson, Ariz. — an experience Black chronicled in a series on her blog, ChildWild. After a flight attendant insisted that the family take their assigned seats — which caused the children to cry since they were separated from their mother and sitting between strangers — Black ultimately managed to commandeer seats for the three of them together, but only after the entire plane had boarded. “Even if I wanted to leave my 2-year-old in Row 26 while I kicked back with a paperback up in Row 5, I kind of think I shouldn’t be allowed to,” Black wrote on her blog. “Doesn’t the airline have a responsibility, for the safety of all its passengers, to keep young kids with their caregivers?” Responding, Todd Lehmacher, a US Airways spokesman, wrote in an email, “We are sympathetic to families traveling together and make every effort to accommodate their request.” But, he added, “We also have to weigh the needs of our other customers.” When flights were less full, flight attendants say, reseating passengers so that a family can sit together wasn’t a problem. Attendants are not required to persuade passengers to swap seats. What families can do: First, book as early as possible so more seats are available. If you cannot find seats together, call the airline and ask an agent to make a note on your reservation indicating which family members are minors, recommends Henry Harteveldt, a travel industry analyst and

co-founder of Atmosphere Research Group. “If for some reason the airline changes planes or the seating configuration changes,” he said, “families usually get priority.” If nothing comes of that, check back with the airline one to three days before departure, when seats for customers with disabilities are often released. If those seats are not taken, they are released to other passengers. And, of course, you can throw money at the problem. Most airlines now put a price tag on the most desirable seats, which may remain available when the rest of coach is sold.

If you want it, bring it No one should be surprised at having to take food on board (or pay for it), in addition to basic supplies, but some families, like the Lins, who were refused milk for their twins, are startled to discover just what isn’t available. Mary Clark, a spokeswoman for Continental, said the family’s experience wasn’t typical, and that the airline offers a “variety of complimentary beverages on all of our flights, but occasionally a specific selection may not be available due to customer demand.” What should families expect and do: Even when airlines offer food onboard, often the thing you want is sold out. To ensure that your family has what it needs, take it yourself. Keep in mind that baby formula and food, breast milk and juice are allowed “in reasonable quantities” exceeding the usual 3.4 ounces required by security according to the Transportation Security Administration. Consider buying perishables like milk post-security and asking a flight attendant to put those items on ice. Or bring something like Parmalat or Horizon Organic’s 8-ounce low-fat milk boxes which can be stored at room temperature until opened.

Does it have to be this way? For Americans used to domestic flights, the first taste of a foreign airline can be a head-turner. Eric Lorge, a media studies professor who regularly visits Los Angeles from Europe, was flying American before he tried Air Tahiti Nui from Los Angeles to Paris with his wife and three children, all younger than 5. He liked that they would often get priority boarding as a family, but what won him over was the way the flight attendants handled his daughter when she was sick. “They kept bringing warm washcloths and water and asking if we needed anything.”

His experience with United States carriers? “I try to avoid them if at all possible.” A handful of family courtesies remain on domestic flights, including checking a stroller and car seat at no charge. Children younger than 2 can fly free on a parent’s lap within the U.S. And most airlines will allow children to sit in an approved car seat if there is the space for it onboard. On overseas flights, U.S. carriers tend to offer families more amenities — bassinets for infants, pillows, blankets and the occasional child’s meal — because they are competing with foreign airlines. But why can’t all flights within the U.S. strive for those foreign flourishes? “It comes down to one thing, and one thing only: cost,” said Harteveldt. “With travelers

so focused on saving money, airlines simply can’t afford to offer the amenities foreign flag airlines offer. In addition, U.S. airlines have higher labor costs than many foreign-flag airlines, leaving them with less margin to offer kid-friendly amenities.” Some travel experts believe that airlines are missing an opportunity by not catering to families. Joanne Gardner, owner of the Travel Specialist travel agency in Wheaton, Ill., where nearly half of her business is planning family vacations, estimates that 25 to 35 percent of her clients actively avoid flying. “People really dislike the whole experience,” she said, from the baggage fees to having to bring on their own food. “Clients are preferring to take trains, rent a car or drive on their own.”

Stork Continued from E1 He and Windlinx decided, even though the man hadn’t officially asked for help, he needed it. They bagged up the Strawberry Shortcake items and dropped off the large bag at the doorstep of the man’s house. A few days later, he and his wife came in and said thank you while shedding a few tears. Windlinx said, “You don’t get closer to people’s hearts than when you’re helping their children.” She estimates The Stylish Stork has helped more than 300 local families. Windlinx and her husband, Rick, came up with the idea of the charity about two years ago when their church, Living Purpose Church, had a vacant building on Dekalb Avenue in Bend. They spent several hundred dollars buying used kids’ items to stock the place and then worked hard to get the word out. The store is now operated under the nonprofit OneLove and is not affiliated with the church. That was by design, says Looney, so that everyone would feel welcome. “We didn’t want people to feel obligated to come to church,” said Looney. “We want anybody in need to come to this store.” A little more than a month ago, the store moved to a new location on Northeast Greenwood Avenue near downtown Bend. The move gives them more visibility, but also rent to pay. So far, things have been going well. The store is operated by volunteers and relies on donations of clothing and other items from the community. Looney says they only accept items that are in good shape, no rips or stains. They also try to keep the prices as low as possible (brand-new infant shoes for $3.99, two onesies for $1.) What the group does: The Stylish Stork is a nonprofit kids’ clothing and equipment store that gives

away items to families in need and sells items at low cost. How it works: Families in need — or people who know families in need — can get assistance by filling out a voucher form at the store. A volunteer will discuss with the family and determine the family’s needs. The volunteers get together on a regularly to figure out how much can be given away while considering the list of families. The most needy get priority, but no one gets removed from the list. The families are then issued certificates to spend in the store. The nonprofit is also giving away Christmas dinner boxes to families in need this year. The store is always accepting donations of items. Shoppers can also buy goods. Who it helps: Any family in need can talk to the volunteers and see if they qualify; there are no specific requirements. Contact: www.thestylish, 541-550-7055, 165 N.E. Greenwood Ave., Bend.

epending how you look at it, singer-songwriter Timothy B. Schmit, 64, either has a gift for being in the right place at the right time or a knack for just missing out on wider acclaim and bigger fame and fortune.

Calling from California on Monday as he drove to a solo show promoting his 2009 — yes, 2009 — album, “Expando,” the humble and affable Schmit made it plenty clear he views his glass as half full. Your glass — make that flute — might be a little more full if you decide to go see this legend-

ary champagne-rock musician Thursday at the Tower Theatre in Bend (see “If you go”). Before we get to that, though, let’s climb in our time machine and travel back to the late 1960s, when the Sacramento, Calif., native was a young bass player who’d spent much of the decade cutting his

teeth playing everything from folk to surf to Beatles-inspired rock. In 1968, according to his bio at www.timothybschmitonline. com, Schmit auditioned for the country-rock band Poco, which was forming from the ashes of Buffalo Springfield. Contin u ed Page 5

The Ascetic Junkies return to town with a few new songs The Dimes bring some


olks who love The Ascetic Junkies — let’s call them Junkies junkies! — must be jonesing to see the band right about now. After all, it’s been eight whole months since the Portland quintet played in Bend. Before that, they’d been here seven times over the previous 16 months to showcase their winsome-with-a-wink sound. Fear not, junkies! Your beloved Junkies return to Silver Moon Brewing tonight, and co-founder Matt Harmon emailed to say they’ll be debuting some brand new songs and breaking out some interesting covers. Presumably, they’ll also play tunes from their lovely 2010 album “This Cage Has No Bottom,” which I reviewed in The Bulletin a year ago. That review sums this band up pretty well, so I’ll use it again: “‘Cage’ is filled to the brim with everything that’s great about the Junkies: lively arrangements, spirited, sparkling melodies and bright-eyed boy/girl vocals as far as the ear can hear. Lyrically, Harmon and (Kia) Giaritta walk a line between playful and provocative, delivering lines about life, death, whiskey and religion via hooks so cheerful, they sweep aside the

world-weary feel that runs through these songs. The result is a sound that combines the rootsy cool of neo-bluegrassers The Avett Brothers, the radiant charm of Mates of State’s fluttery indie-pop, and the carnivalesque racket of early Of Montreal.” But you don’t have to take my word for it. There are songs to be streamed at www One note: Tonight’s show is one of the last that banjo player Graham Houser will play with the band before he moves to Argentina, so get over there and say goodbye. His work is integral to the Junkies’ sound.

saw The Dimes once. It wasn’t at McMenamins or Silver Moon or any of the other usual spots. In fact, it was in the auditorium at Crook County High School in Prineville, on a Friday night in April of 2008. Not a venue I visit often for live music. But that show remains one of the most memorable of my time here at The Bulletin, not because the band was mind-blowing — though they were very good — but because of the kids in the crowd, many of them students there to soak up something cool and different for their little town. The smiles plastered on their faces that night stick with me to this day. Another Dimes-related thing that holds up years later: The band’s 2007 album “The Silent Generation,” a slice of elegant, easygoing indie-pop — think Death Cab for Cutie unplugged — with a healthy interest in history. (Many of the album’s songs were inspired by a bunch of 1930s newspapers discovered beneath the floorboards of an old Portland house.)

A second historically obsessed album followed in 2009 (subject: Ye Olde Boston) but more recently, The Dimes have been stretching and growing. Kelly Anne Masigat has joined the group, and the band has expanded its sonic aspirations, adding mandolin, pedal steel guitar and Dobro for more of a sunbaked twang-pop sound. Head over to, where the band has conveniently posted for streaming “A Field Guide to The Dimes,” with a couple of cuts from each of their releases.

From Page 3 However, a certain bass player by the name of Randy Meisner got the gig. In 1969, Schmit was invited to audition for Poco again, and the second time proved to be the charm. Meanwhile, Meisner departed for The Eagles, which went on to become the biggest American band of the 1970s. In fact, as “The New Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll” puts it, “During these years, the Eagles dominated the field that Poco was expected to mine.” Several years later, as luck would have it, Schmit would again replace Meisner in a band. In 1977, Meisner and The Eagles parted company. Schmit got the call up, via invitation from Glenn Frey, to join The Eagles at the height of its soaring popularity. Schmit would tour with the group, even getting to perform his Poco staple, “Keep on Tryin’,” at concerts. He also performed on The Eagles’ 1979 studio album, “The Long Run,” singing lead on the ballad “I Can’t Tell You Why.” By then, in spite of its peaceful, easy, yacht-rockin’ image, the band was also becoming known for infighting among its members. Hostilities mounting, The Eagles called it quits in 1982. Schmit says he was “pretty much” outside of the squabbles. “The seeds of the unrest were already planted by the time I got there, unbeknownst to me,” he said. “I actually didn’t even pay much attention to it. It didn’t seem any different than any other band I had been in, in those respects.” Post-Eagles, Schmit would need to keep on tryin’ for himself. He released a few solo albums — his song “Boys Night Out” was a hit in 1987

— and he also worked as a session man, his fine voice and bass skills put to use by the likes of Crosby, Stills and Nash, Steely Dan, Toto and a slew of others. Schmit also spent a few years touring with Jimmy Buffett as a member of the Coral Reefer Band. Legend has it he coined the term “Parrotheads” to describe Buffett’s ardent, colorfully attired fans. “Yep, that’s correct,” he confirmed. But being a Coral Reefer, even temporarily, “was a big change for me,” Schmit added. “(Buffett) is a friend of mine … and he just asked me to go out for a couple of weeks,” he said. “He wanted to know if I wanted to go out, play some music, have a little fun. I ended up doing it, I don’t know, on and off for a couple of years. “The main difference is that I was used to being one of the main people,” Schmit said. With Buffett, “I was definitely just a bass player in that band, and a background singer. It was humbling, but it was fun. And honestly, I like to work, and I’m no different than anybody. I need to work.” Then along came “Hell Freezes Over,” as The Eagles called their 1994 reunion, which Schmit said was a “godsend.” Coincidentally, it occurred just as Schmit was making his personal peace with his career. “Really, my whole lifestyle had really humbled me,” he said. “Just about the time I changed from being a little bit angry about my lifestyle change, and I started to accept it and look at all the great things in my life — because I have many great things in my life — about that same time is when we got back together.” Schmit sang lead on the gorgeous

ballad “Love Will Keep us Alive,” The Eagles embarked on a hugely successful tour, and in 2007, they even released a new studio album, “Long Road out of Eden,” which sold more than 7 million copies. Suddenly Schmit — who drops a solo album every several years — was as busy as ever with The Eagles. (Bandmate Don Henley has referred to The Eagles as “The Mothership,” meaning the band is the larger entity that calls its members back from their solo careers every now and then.) “I’ve been very busy with The Eagles in the last couple of years. We went to Australia, mainland China, Europe, did some more shows in the U.S.,” said Schmit. And that activity made promoting “Expando” difficult — for a while. Now, he said, there’s not much going on with The Mothership. “Expando” is two years old, “but not a lot of people heard it, so I’m talking about it again,” Schmit said. “I think it’s worth listening to.” For his Tower show, he’ll bring along a talented bunch of seasoned musicians “to make it something more special than if I was just sitting there with a guitar,” he said. “It’s more like a revue. It’s more like ‘An Evening with Timothy and his Friends,’” he said. “Everybody gets a little something to do.” Schmit said he’ll do several “Expando” songs but fans of The Eagles and Poco can also expect to hear familiar tunes. “There’s some history in there,” he said. “My job is to, I suppose, take them away from their day to day (lives) for a little while and lift their spirits, and hopefully do a good job at that.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349,

Give it up for bands that do creative things, whether they’re recordings, artwork, marketing, gigs. Whatever. The way Empty Space Orchestra is spending its December counts. Starting tonight, the local post/jazz/ space-rock band will begin a weekly residency at Silver Moon Brewing, playing four of the next five Saturday nights, each with a different (and interesting) opening act. And lest you think you can see one of these and call it good, ESO’s Shane Thomas says the band will play four different sets over the four shows. And then there’s the draw of the openers, which begin Saturday with Portland-based VTRN, a woozy, ’80s-inspired disco-funk-hop group that includes Bendite Kelsey Kuther as a member. Find ’em at (Other openers include Water & Bodies on Dec. 10, White Orange on Dec. 17 and Your Birthday and Oh Sugoi on Dec. 31.) Ticketing info for Saturday’s show is below, but be aware you can buy tickets to all four nights for $13 plus fees at

Cloverdayle — fronted by Chad and Rachel Hamar, the latter a native Bendite — got a big break when they scored a spot opening for Jason Aldean at Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend. Two years later, that experience is still paying off. You see, the Hamars struck up a friendship with Aldean’s camp on that September evening, and they’ve stayed in touch. Now, they plan to spend part of the upcoming winter in Nashville recording a five-song EP with Aldean’s band. That’s going to cost money, of course, and that’s why Saturday’s show at Maverick’s Country Bar and Grill is a fundraiser, with proceeds going directly to Cloverdayle’s upcoming project.

A couple options for those with a jazz jones: • If you like your jazz nestled up against blues, funk and R&B, then you’ll want to see the Renato Caranto Quartet on Saturday at The Old Stone (157 N.W. Franklin Ave., Bend). Caranto is a world-class talent on the tenor saxophone; vocals will be handled by Sweet Baby James. 7 p.m. $25, $12.50 for college students and free for schoolchildren, available at atjoes or 541-771-6446. • Jazz isn’t the first word that comes to mind when watching/hearing Todd Haaby & Sola Via play, but the local nuevo flamenco band’s music certainly has a heavy jazz influence mixed in with its intoxicating Latin flair. Their show Saturday at the Tower Theatre (835 N.W. Wall St., Bend) will feature plenty of Haaby’s six-string wizardry, plus his full band, including percussion. 7:30 p.m. $22 and $30, available through the venue at www.towertheatre .org or 541-317-0700.

Every spring, it seems, Greg Bryce goes off to fight fires in Alaska, then returns to his winter home, Bend, with new players in his ever-evolving project Blackflowers Blacksun. But one thing never changes: His love of old-school Delta blues, authentically delivered via scorching slide guitar and a gritty, guttural howl. Bryce’s heroes are guys like Son House and Fred McDowell, and you can hear it every time he takes off on a fiery solo or digs deep for a gnarly holler. On Saturday, he’ll play The Horned Hand with another rustic local act, Rural Demons. Details below.

ONE WAY STATION AT SILVER MOON BREWING Just when you think every psychedelic roots band on Earth has played Bend, here comes One Way Station, a Bay Area quintet that can take a funky, keys-happy groove, stretch it out, and turn it into dance-floor fuel.

music releases Florence and the Machine “CEREMONIALS” Universal Republic Records It’s no accident that “Ceremonials,” Florence Welch’s second album leading Florence and the Machine, starts with keyboards mimicking the peal of cathedral bells. “Ceremonials” is pitched as nothing less than an earthshaking battle for the singer’s soul: a matter of life and death, heaven and hell, immolation and transcendence. After selling more than 3 million copies worldwide of their 2009 debut album, “Lungs,” Florence and the Machine have decided that bigger is better. The conflicts Welch sang about on “Lungs” were internal or social; the ones on “Ceremonials” aim to be cosmic. Welch and her songwriting partners — primarily the producer Paul Epworth, who has collaborated with Adele, and Isabella Summers, the band’s keyboardist — imagine the singer drowned at the bottom of the ocean, beset by demons from within and without, or burdened by some unforgivable sin. “There’s no salvation for me now/ No space among the clouds,” she sings in the piano-pounding “Lover to Lover.” The sound is as vast as the stakes. “Ceremonials” is an album of anthems, as construed by both the church and the arena concert. Songs materialize out of canyonsize electronic reverberations. Arpeggios cascade from keyboards

amid swirling harp glissandos. Organ tones loom large. Phalanxes of backup choirs flank Welch’s own fervent voice. Drums pound and rumble. Orchestral strings build fortifications or quiver to make the whole soundscape tremble. Not to mention the sea gulls in at least one song, “Heartlines.” The music wholeheartedly embraces a deeply British pomp that’s rooted in hymns and marches, then escalated by rock drums and electronics. It raises the ante on Kate Bush, Coldplay and Annie Lennox. Florence and the Machine draw on American soul and gospel, too, though they stiffen up any swing. Throughout the album, Florence and the Machine knock themselves out to provide thrill upon thrill. But soon after the songs make their initial splash, grandeur turns to grandiosity. In making the songs so monumental, Florence and the Machine have also made them impersonal. — Jon Pareles, The New York Times

long ago ceased attempting to repeat the top-40 success she had back in 1993 dueting with John Mellencamp on a cover of Van Morrison’s “Wild Night.” “Weather,” her ninth album, is another twist: It’s understated and soulful, a quiet storm of moodiness and atmosphere. Credit in part goes to producer Joe Henry, who has a knack for dusky soul and creeping tension. Credit also to the focus on her gentle singing, often in her upper register, that gives “Weather” a brooding intimacy, whether on covers from Leonard Cohen or the ’70s Stax band the Soul Children or on songs she’s cowritten (including one, surprisingly, with industrial rocker Chris Connelly). — Steve Klinge, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN — PART 1 SOUNDTRACK” Atlantic Records Though the “Twilight” saga has had four different directors interpret how the stories should look, there has been only one music supervisor to determine how the movies should sound — Alexandra Patsavas. As influential as the soundtracks of John Hughes movies were over teenage musical tastes in the ’80s, the “Twilight” sound, as meticulously chosen by Patsavas, has practically created its own genre in the 21st century. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 Soundtrack” adds to that reputation, even

bending already established artists to its power. The first single, Bruno Mars’ stately “It Will Rain,” sounds less like Mr. “Grenade” and more like a soulinfused Death Cab for Cutie. The “Wedding Version” of Iron & Wine’s “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” adds a bit more heft to its considerable beauty. That’s the hallmark of a “Twilight” song, a strong inner core surrounded by ethereal production. It means the charming brother-sister duo the Belle Brigade get tougher than usual on the bluesy “I Didn’t Mean It,” and it means Noisettes turn their “Sister Rosetta” into something more lighthearted. If the “Breaking Dawn” soundtrack gets to use its hitmaking powers for good, it will turn Belle Brigade and the

Toby Keith “CLANCY’S TAVERN” Universal Records Toby Keith’s new album gets off to a less-than-promising start with the first single, “Made in America.” It’s a rousing crowdpleaser, to be sure, and it’s not quite the obnoxiously bellicose post-9/11 Keith of “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American).” But, as with so many uninspired country songs, its saltof-the-earth subjects are less real people than idealized archetypes. After that, however, Keith

career peak, “Bullets From a Gun.” He can do the straight-up barroom lament (“Just Another Sundown”), but he can also take a more lighthearted look at romance (“Tryin’ to Fall in Love”). He lays his heart on the line with more than a touch of soul, and soul music (“I Won’t Let You Down”), and also gets goofily loose-limbed (“Red Solo Cup”).

Ah a n d fu lo fp a tro n se n jo yth e c o zyin te rio rof Redmond’s 750 Wine Bar & Bistro on a recent Tuesday evening.

• Redmond’s 750 Wine Bar & Bistro is a mother-daughter success By John Gottberg Anderson For The Bulletin


he former Avery’s Wine Bar in Redmond is now the 750 Wine Bar & Bistro. If you liked it before, chances are you’ll like it even better now. I know that I do. The mother-daughter team of Rebecca Sullivan and Emma Farnsworth — Sullivan a restaurant pro from eastern Idaho, Farnsworth a recent graduate of the University of Idaho — bought the establishment from another moth-

er and daughter in mid-June. They have maintained the emphasis on quality wines by the glass and bottle, and on performances by leading local musicians, even as they have stepped up the quality of food. Named for the size of a standard 750-milliliter wine bottle, this is an elegant and intimate cafe with low lighting and rich wood decor reminiscent of a European country bistro. There are seats for no more than two dozen guests at six tables and a quaint bar. Solo art-

ists often perform in one corner of the room. Farnsworth handles the baking and the front of the house; she can usually be found hustling between patrons at the bar and at tables, with a style that is at once attentive and unobtrusive. Although she has had limited prior restaurant experience, she seems a natural for the role, handling service issues seamlessly with assistance only during the busiest hours. Continued next page

Scorecard OVERALL: AFood: B+. A menu of solid and filling comfort food doesn’t pretend to be fine dining. Service: A-. Despite a couple of minor glitches, service was at once attentive and unobtrusive. Atmosphere: A. Elegant and intimate, with rich wood decor reminiscent of Europe. Value: A-. Prices are more than fair for generous portions presented on small plates.





From previous page Sullivan, who holds forth in the kitchen, prepares a limited home-style menu that features appetizers, tapasstyle small plates and a few desserts. The list is augmented by a daily list of blackboard specials, prepared on a rotating schedule of Thai, Mexican, Greek-Italian and American dishes.

Dinner for two On an initial visit to 750, a companion and I shared three dishes. We started with a generous salad of spring greens topped with hazelnuts, bleu cheese crumbles and sliced pears, roasted with a honey glaze. An ample amount of thyme vinaigrette dressing, along with an herbed bruschetta, made this an excellent salad. A hearty Southwestern-style stew was perfect for a chilly night. Cooked as a posole with white hominy as its main ingredient, it was prepared with chunks of tender pork and ancho (poblano) chilies, along with onions and tomatoes. Green onions and sour cream topped the stew. My only complaint was that a piece of heated jalapeño cornbread was a little dry; honey helped the flavor. The only item among our three orders that was listed on the daily menu, and was not among the blackboard specials, was macaroni and cheese. Six separate cheeses and plentiful bacon crumbles were stirred into the noodle dish, which was served with garlic toast. Although there was really nothing here to surprise the palate, there didn’t need to be; it was a nice late-autumn dish to accompany with a glass of Argentine malbec.

A solo visit My meal on a second occasion, a few nights later, followed a similar pattern. The dishes I chose did not represent fine dining, but they were solid and filling comfort food — the sort of fare I look for when I’m out for casual bites with friends. I started with an appetizer of baked jalapeño peppers, sliced lengthwise into eight bites, stuffed with cheddar and jack cheeses and served with lime slices. Those with a few seeds left inside the capsicum had considerably more bite than the others! They were presented with two very different sauces, a spicy red one flavored with cayenne pepper, and a sweet white honey-flavored sauce. Broad, flat pappardelle noodles, made in the bistro’s own pasta maker, were a Mediterranean special prepared in vegetarian style with fresh spinach and ricotta cheese. Although I enjoyed this dish, I felt that it could have used more seasoning — if not salt and pepper, at least an herb like thyme. It was served with ground Parmesan cheese and a huge sprig of Italian parsley.

The crowning touch was a rich and silky chocolate mocha cake, made that same afternoon by Farnsworth. If all restaurant desserts were as tantalizing as this one, I am sure I would sample them more frequently. The 750 serves 17 wines by the glass, including seven reds and four whites, as well as choices in the rose, sparkling and dessert-wine categories. A wide range of select bottled vintages are also offered, and several local beers are featured on tap. In summer, a broad side patio and front deck double the capacity of the bistro. A lighter menu is also offered in warmer weather. But for me, the winterized comfort food works just fine. — Reporter: janderson@

GET IN THE SPIRIT! • Local theaters and dance companies crank up their Christmas productions By David Jasper • The Bulletin s much as we Americans wax cynical about Christmas — the mindless music, crass commercialization, combative shoppers, energy-depleting Christmas lights, the secular appropriation of a religious holiday — there still remains a gooey, feel-good center at its core. And we’re not just talking about eggnog. There may be no more satisfying way to access that gooey place than Christmas story performances which can both entertain on wintry days best spent indoors and make hardened, world-weary grown-ups all sentimental and weepy, which is also pretty entertaining to see (well, at least my kids seem to think it’s


funny when Dad starts crying). There’s no shortage of holiday fare at venues around Bend this holiday season. Throw a snowball in any given direction this weekend and you could well hit an actor on his or her way to a performance. “It feels really important. I’m not sure exactly why. For me it’s the next logical time to do a show,” said Brad Hills, executive artistic director of Innovation Theatre Works. “Since it is December, you somehow feel as though it’s got to have something to do with the holiday. I think that’s the mindset that everybody has.” Continued next page

From previous page Whatever the reason, if you’re searching for light in the darkness of insanity, ’tis the season for holiday performances. Here’s your guide to local theater and dance groups hoho-hosting productions:

‘The Santaland Diaries’ and ‘A Christmas Memory’ Opening tonight at Innovation: “A Christmas Memory.” Adapted from the Truman Capote short story and directed by Sandy Silver, the oneman show stars TV personality Bob Shaw. Innovation describes the play as “a largely autobiographical story, which takes place in the 1930s. In the story, Capote describes a period in the lives of the 7-year-old narrator and an elderly woman who is his distant cousin and best friend. The evocative narrative focuses on country life, friendship and the joy of giving during the Christmas season, and it also gently yet poignantly touches on loneliness and loss.” Tickets to the gala opening at 7 tonight cost $30, and all proceeds go to the Assistance League of Bend. All other performances are at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through Dec. 18. Tickets are $20 and $18 for seniors, students and groups. Up to 50 percent of proceeds from these performances will go to the Assistance League. Innovation’s other Christmas offering: “The Santaland Diaries,” Joe Mantello’s adaptation of author David Sedaris’ breakthrough essay, starring Clint Clark as Crumpet the elf. The one-man show is being staged in Innovation’s Balcony Cafe space, which will feature live jazz before and after the show. It will run at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays through Dec. 22. All performances are $10. Innovation is located at 1155 S.W. Division St., Bend. Contact: or 541-504-6721

Art, foods and more at First Friday Gallery Walk From 5 to 9 tonight, galleries and coffee shops in and around downtown Bend will open their doors for First Friday Gallery Walk, the monthly offering of some pretty great things: food, music and art. At Red Chair Gallery, 103 N.W. Oregon Ave., its members will offer their interpretations of the color red. Ten percent of the gallery’s December sales will be donated to Bethlehem Inn, a Bend shelter and resource for

‘Jingle Bell Jury’ While riding his bicycle in October, Bend Theatre for Young People artistic director Gary Bowne was hit by a car. With a lengthy recovery period ahead of him, Thiel Larson stepped in to take on directing duties for the company’s production of “Jingle Bell Jury.” Explains Larson: “There’s a trial going on because there’s this little boy who comes from a town called Candy Cane, and he decides Christmas is a lot of humbug, mostly because he’s trying to be as tough as the bullies he is around. There’s Snow and there’s Miss Eggnog and so on, and all come into this court system and put the Spirit of Christmas on trial.” Performances will take place at First Presbyterian Church, 230 N.E. Ninth St., Bend, at 7 tonight and 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $8 for adults and $3 for children. According to BTYP’s Facebook updates, proceeds from this year’s ticket and concession sales will be donated to Bowne. Contact: or 541-419-1395.

‘The Nutcracker’ Central Oregon School of Ballet will present two performances of the classic holiday ballet at 3 and 7 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at Bend High School, 230 N.E. Sixth St., Bend. Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 at the door for adults, $6 in advance, $7 at the door for ages 12 and younger.

‘The Story of the Nutcracker’ Bend Experimental Art Theatre presents “The Story of the Nutcracker” at 2nd Street Theater in Bend. Not to be confused with the ballet, the Patrick Kmiec-directed play was adapted by Michele Vacca from the original E.T.A. Hoffman story and other source material. In it, children Fritz and Marie are visited by Uncle Drosselmeyer, who brings them three dolls for Christmas. Actors ages 8-18 rehearsed for eight weeks in order to play more than 30 characters in the production, choreographed by Mary Kilpatrick. Performances are at 7 tonight and Saturday as well as Dec. 8-10, with a 3 p.m. matinee Dec. 11. 2nd Street Theater is located at 220 N.E. Lafayette Ave., Bend. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for students ages 18 and younger. Contact: or 541-419-5558.

‘A Christmas Story’ As you’ve read previously in these pages, the folks at Cascades Theatrical Company (CTC) are serving up a heaping portion of Christmas fun with a stage adaptation of the 1983 classic film “A Christmas Story.” Will Ralphie get his Red Ryder BB gun and shoot his eye out? Will his dad win a major prize? Will Flick ever disengage his frozen tongue from the metal pole? Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays with matinees at 2 p.m. Sundays through Dec. 11 at Greenwood Playhouse, 148 N.W.

‘Tis the season • Christmas productions take over stages all across Oregon By Jenny Wasson The Bulletin


o you hear what I hear? Whether you like it or not, the sounds of the holidays are starting to hit the airwaves. It’s beginning to look and sound a lot like Christmas. Organizations around Oregon are planning plenty of events this month — both popular classics and new favorites — to get you in the holiday spirit. From light shows and concerts to plays and ballets, there is something for everyone this season. Nothing says the holidays like Christmas carols and the Oregon Symphony is offering many opportunities to listen to your favorite tunes. The lineup includes popular groups like Mannheim Steamroller on Dec. 17 and “The Canadian Tenors Christmas” on Dec. 16. For a full schedule and tickets, visit www or contact 503-228-1353. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” is a time-honored holiday tradition. The Eugene Ballet Company’s version features choreography by Toni Pimble. It runs Dec. 16-18 at the Hult Center in Eugene and Dec. 19 at the Ross Ragland Theater in Klamath Falls. For more information, visit or call 541-485-3992. The Oregon Ballet Theatre’s take on “Nut-

cracker” features choreography by George Balanchine and runs Dec. 10-24 in Portland. The group will perform with a live orchestra for seven of the performances. OBT is also presenting “A Holiday Revue,” Dec. 10-22, featuring Susannah Mars and Marv and Rindy Ross. Tickets for both shows can be purchased on Ticketmaster at or 800-745-3000. For lovers of theater, several contemporary shows are becoming Oregon traditions. Portland Center Stage presents “A Christmas Story” through Dec. 24 in Portland. And “The Santaland Diaries” run through Dec. 31 in Portland and through Dec. 18 in Eugene. Another favorite holiday pastime is looking at Christmas lights. The popular ZooLights are back at the Oregon Zoo through Jan. 1. Featuring millions of LED lights, the show includes moving sculptures, forests of lighted trees and animal silhouettes, according to a news release. Oregonians can also see light shows Saturday at the Newport Lighted Boat Parade and Dec. 16-18 at the “Wild Lights” show at Wildlife Safari in Winston.

Weekly download ‘JURASSIC PARK: THE GAME’ Reviewed for: PlayStation 3 Network and Xbox Live Also available for: Windows, Mac From: Telltale Games ESRB Rating: T for Teen Price: $30 “Jurassic Park: The Game” might be the year’s most insulting game — but only if you even consider it a game at all. In truth, most of its most would-be exciting moments — pitting you on the run from dinosaurs — are nothing more than interactive cut scenes. Press the button prompts when they appear, and you live to experience to the next cut scene; miss too many prompts, and you just do it over until you get it right. Not exactly immersive. Telltale cited “Heavy Rain” as its inspiration for the methods of locomotion and interaction in “Park,” but even that game gave you direct control over your characters in a 3-D space. This one doesn’t, often reducing mundane motions like climbing stairs and cutting shrubs to repetitive button prompt exercises. Between this and dialogue trees that all seem to lead to the same place, the whole thing feels more like a VCR board game from 1988 than a video game from 2011. — Bil l y O’Keefe, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Zachary Quinto, left, and Penn Badgley star as employees at an investment firm in “Margin Call.”

‘Margin Call’ is a powerful film • Corporate greed takes the spotlight in this fictional tale about the 2008 financial collapse


t may have happened something like this. “Margin Call” depicts the last night of good times on Wall Street, as a deadly certainty travels up the executive ladder at an investment firm: Disastrous speculation in the mortgage markets is leading to the firm’s collapse. We can still recall those days in the summer of 2008, during the Obama-McCain campaign, when America seemed awash in prosperity and the stock market was setting new records. Then one firm after another was forced to declare bankruptcy, the

nation’s economic structure was threatened, and Congress ponied up its huge bailout. “Margin Call” begins on a day at an unnamed investment firm that must certainly have an inkling of what’s coming, since 80 percent of the workforce is laid off. One of the victims is Eric (Stanley Tucci), a senior risk analyst who, like many of his colleagues, was incapable of seeing that the real estate market was built as a house of cards. Although writer-director J.C. Chandor’s film has sympathy for most of its characters,


“Margin Call” 109 minutes R, for language

it is important to remember that they all felt they had to play along with the deals that were bringing their firms such huge profits and bonuses. On his way out the door, Eric slips a USB drive to Peter (Zach-

ary Quinto), a younger analyst who wasn’t fired. There’s information on it that disturbs Peter. So it should. While the office is empty and the survivors are out partying to celebrate not being fired, Peter realizes the firm and the market are clearly trembling on the brink. He contacts his supervisor Will (Paul Bettany), who takes one look and calls his boss Sam (Kevin Spacey). Others are called in for an all-night emergency meeting until at dawn a helicopter brings in the CEO, John (Jeremy Irons). You don’t need to understand a lot about the markets to follow the film. John is a cool, polished Brit who likes to say things like, “Speak to me in plain terms,” because his

job requires him to manage the corporation, but not necessarily understand its business. Indeed, as we now know, a fresh young college graduate could have looked at the balance sheets and clearly seen Wall Street was doomed. It is up to John to make the margin call. In other words, to order his company to start dumping worthless holdings before the word spreads that they are worthless — essentially, betraying their customers. It has now been established that some firms created hedge funds INTENDED to fail, so they could make money betting against them. These they sold to their customers knowing they were worthless.

How Elmo came to be • Documentary tells of Clash’s road to voicing an iconic muppet

ON LOCAL SCREENS Here’s what’s showing on Central Oregon movie screens. For showtimes, see listings on Page 30.

Reviews by Roger Ebert unless otherwise noted.



ll Kevin Clash ever wanted to do was make puppets. That came even before he fixated on Muppets. One day he had an inspiration so urgent that it required cutting up his father’s coat. The result was a nice enough puppet, but when Kevin emerged from his creative frenzy he realized his father might have stern words for him. Called in trembling to the old man, all he heard was: “Next time, ask.” Kevin Clash was born into a large middle-class family in an African-American suburb of Baltimore, and perhaps found puppets and Muppets a way to express his otherwise quiet, shy personality. Using sheets on his mother’s clothesline as a backdrop, he put on shows for the neighborhood kids, he was picked on as a boy who “played with dolls,” but that changed after he won a job on a local TV show in Baltimore. “Being Elmo” is a documentary that follows him through a series of good breaks that lead him into the universe of Jim Henson and “Sesame Street,” and we even hear an eyewitness to the day he “discovered” the Elmo character. After another puppeteer grew frustrated and threw Elmo at Kevin saying, “Here, you try it,” Kevin fooled around with a series of voices until Elmo, one of the most beloved of all Muppets, emerged. He also defined Elmo’s central characteristic: All he wanted was to love and be loved, and hug you. What kid couldn’t identify? The original Elmo craze led to buyer

panics for the Tickle Me Elmo dolls, and Clash’s life has been a happy one. Was there more? We hear about the shocking and sudden death of Jim Henson. That seems to have been the only tragedy in Clash’s life. We hear of an ex-wife and meet a beloved daughter. The director, Constance Marks, either filmed or found film from a remarkable span of Kevin’s life; we see him at all ages and during such early events as his first Macy’s parade. What I hadn’t realized fully is

how versatile the Muppeteers are, doing a variety of voices. There’s an interesting scene where he teaches Muppeteers for a French version of the Muppet show how you don’t want to let a Muppet spend much time with his mouth closed; backstage at the Muppet works, we see countless drawers filled with eyeballs, eyebrows, whiskers and wigs. It’s the only world Kevin wanted to live in, and he made it.

From previous page I think the movie is about how its characters are concerned only with the welfare of their corporations. There is no larger sense of the public good. Corporations are amoral and exist to survive and succeed, at whatever human cost. It is this the Wall Street protesters are angry about: They are not against capitalism, but against Wall Street dishonesty and greed. “Margin Call” employs an excellent cast who can turn finan-

cial talk into compelling dialogue. They can also reflect the enormity of what is happening: Their company and their lives are being rendered meaningless. This scenario was enacted at many Wall Street institutions in the autumn of 2008, and fundamental financial reform is still being opposed. No particular firm is named, but doesn’t it seem to you that the name of the Jeremy Irons character, “John Tuld,” has an echo of Richard Fuld, CEO of Lehman

Brothers, who collected enormous bonuses for leading his company into bankruptcy? Irons is sly in the role, a man who knows his own financial stability is unassailable, who considers his job as an amoral exercise, who has made it to the top by not particularly caring about people. A great corporate executive must have a strain of ruthlessness. I also admired Kevin Spacey, who projects incisive intelligence in his very manner, and Demi Moore, as

“Christmas Every Day” — First aired in 1987, this animated comedy is based on the short story by William Dean Howells. A powerful castle ornament is home to a magic fairy who grants special wishes.

a senior executive who has risen to just below the glass ceiling and knows she will stay there. The physical world of the film itself is effective. It’s all glass, steel and protocol, long black cars and executive perks, luxurious lifestyles paid for with what was inescapably fraud. One of the characters has a sick dog. The dog is the only creature in the entire film that anyone likes. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

“The Metropolitan Opera: Rodelinda” — Sensational in the 2004 Met premiere of Stephen Wadsworth’s much-heralded production, Renée Fleming reprises the title role. She’s joined by Stephanie Blythe and countertenor Andreas Scholl, and Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts. “The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD” series features 11 opera performances transmitted live in high definition to movie theaters around the world.

WHAT’S NEW “Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey” — All Kevin Clash ever wanted to do was make puppets. That led the boy from an African-American Baltimore suburb to local TV, Captain Kangaroo and finally a job with his hero Jim Henson and “Sesame Street.” Along the way he created the voice and personality of Elmo, who liked to be tickled. A short, pleasant documentary. Rating: Three stars. 80 minutes. (no MPAA rating) “Margin Call” — A Wall Street investment firm makes a long night’s journey into collapse, as it becomes clear during one fraught night in 2008 that its enormous investments in unstable and fraudulent real estate deals will destroy it. An excellent cast (Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Demi Moore, Zachary Quinto, Stanley Tucci) play characters forced to realize their world is built from smoke and mirrors. Written and directed by J.C. Chandor. Rating: Three and a half stars. 109 minutes. (R)

STILL SHOWING “Anonymous” — A richly detailed historical film that argues Shakespeare was not the author of his own plays. The candidate here is Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford (Rhys Ifans), who is seen deeply involved in the intrigues of Elizabeth’s reign. In my opinion, his theory is nonsense, but don’t allow that to prevent you from enjoying this wonderfully written and produced re-creation of a great epoch in English history. With Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, David Thewlis and Rafe Spall as the hapless Bard. Rating: Three and a half stars. 130 minutes. (PG-13) “Arthur Christmas” — “Arthur Christmas” is a spirited, comically chaotic and adorably anarchic addition to the world’s oversupply of holiday cartoons. It’s very British, in other words — from its producers (Aardman, the folks who gave us “Wallace & Gromit”) to its voice casting to the slang slung by the assorted Santas in this 3-D computer-animated farce. The movie’s energy flags at about the one-hour mark, but we kind of need that break to catch our breath. In a genre — the animated holiday film — already overflowing with the sentimental, the silly “Arthur Christmas” is a most welcome treat to find stuffed into the cinema’s stockings this holiday season.

Bryony (voiced by Ashley Jensen) and Arthur (voiced by James McAvoy) star in “Arthur Christmas.” This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Three stars. 97 minutes. (PG) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“Dolphin Tale” — A sweet, feel-good film about a boy who helps save a dolphin, and how the dolphin helps save him. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) discovers a beached dolphin with its tail entangled in the ropes of a lobster trap. A shy, closed-off boy, he is drawn out of his shell through attempts to save the dolphin and provide it with a prosthetic tail after its own tail must be amputated. Incredibly, this is inspired by real events, and the dolphin involved, named Winter, plays herself. A good cast: Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., Kris Kristofferson, Morgan Freeman, and young Cozi Zuehlsdorff as Sawyer’s new friend at a marine animal hospital. Uplifting family entertainment. Rating: Three stars. 112 minutes. (PG) “Drive” — Ryan Gosling in an extraordinary performance as a man who drives for a living — as a stunt driver in movies, and as a getaway driver for hire. He seems to have no personal life, betrays no emotions, lives simply to function. When he begins to feel fondness for the little boy of his neighbor (Carey Mulligan), he grows involved in a $1 million heist that’s a test of his conscience and loyalties. It looks like a routine action picture, but believe me, it isn’t. Even the car chases look like the real thing. We care about them. We’re not just looking at technology. Rating: Three and a half stars. 100 minutes. (R) “Happy Feet Two” — Sequel to the Oscarwinning 2006 film, with the Penguin Nation now trapped at the bottom of a giant ice bowl. It has much choreography, many musical numbers ranging from Queen to Puccini, a subplot involving krill, and two many penguins standing around looking too interchangeable for characters in a 3-D animated movie. This film is available locally in IMAX. Rating: Two and a half stars. 99 minutes. (PG) “Hugo” — Unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget 3-D family epic, and in some ways a mirror of his own life. The young hero (Asa Butterfield) lives secretly in a cavernous

Parisian train station, where his late father maintained the clockworks. Now he maintains the clocks and dreams of completing his father’s project, a mechanical man. With Chloe Grace Moretz as a young girl also living in the station; Ben Kingsley as her guardian, a toy shop owner; Sacha Baron Cohen as the Station Inspector and Jude Law as Hugo’s father. A great artist has been given command of all the tools and resources he needs to make a family movie about — movies. The use of 3-D is controlled and effective. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Four stars. 130 minutes. (PG) “The Ides of March” — Ryan Gosling stars as a press secretary required to more or less lie as an occupation. He works for a Democratic presidential candidate (George Clooney) and his campaign manager (Philip Seymour Hoffman), but his real cause is his own career. With Paul Giamatti as a rival campaign manager, Evan Rachel Wood as a young intern, and Marisa Tomei as a political reporter. The cynicism of its view of politics is not as surprising as director Clooney perhaps believes, but the character portrayals are compelling. Rating: Three stars. 100 minutes. (R) “Immortals” — Without doubt the bestlooking awful movie you will ever see. Involves the attempt by King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) to conquer Greece and the battle to stop him, led by a plucky peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill). Spectacular visuals, beautiful compositions, and an incomprehensible plot involving characters who often feel like strangers to us. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: One and a half stars. 110 minutes. (R) “In Time” — A science fiction movie in which time is a commodity. Are you willing to pay for 10 minutes of sex with an hour of your life? Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, maker of such original sci-fi movies as “Gattaca,” it involves people whose lives depend on an overarching technology: They can buy, sell and gamble with the remaining years they have to live. Justin Timberlake stars as a hero on the run from the Timekeepers. Rating: Three stars. 109 minutes. (PG-13)

y a d i l o H SHOW











NEW DVD & B L U - R AY RELEASES The following movies were released the week of Nov. 29.

“30 Minutes or Less” — Jesse Eisenberg plays a pizza delivery man who is forced to rob a bank while strapped to a bomb to raise money so a couple of boozy layabouts (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson) can pay a hit man to kill one of their fathers for his lottery winnings. With Aziz Ansari as Eisenberg’s best buddy. Slapdash. It’s oddly distracting to see Eisenberg, who played so smart in “The Social Network,” play so dumb here. DVD Extras: Four featurettes and deleted scenes; Blu-ray Extras: Additional featurette and video commentary. Rating: Two stars. 83 minutes. (R) “Another Earth” — A new planet four times the size of the moon, appears in the sky of Earth. Searching for it out her car window, a young woman (Brit Marling) causes a car crash, killing a mother and child and sending the father (William Mapother) into a coma. After he emerges from the coma, she contrives to work as his housecleaner, and they develop a fragile relationship without him realizing who she is. The presence of Earth 2 in the sky suggests alternative lifelines we could have lived. Marling makes an impressive debut, and the film is thought-provoking. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Three featurettes, a music video and deleted scenes. Rating: Three and a half stars. 92 minutes. (PG-13) “Cave Of Forgotten Dreams” — Werner Herzog’s spellbinding 3-D documentary about the Chauvet Cave in France, where 32,000 years ago, above the Ardeche River, humans created the oldest cave paintings known to exist. His narration evokes mystery and wonder as we regard these masterful early signs of man’s artistry. Filmed in 3-D, not as a gimmick but to better show how the paintings follow the contours of the rock walls. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: One featurette. Rating: Three and a half stars. 90 minutes. (no MPAA rating) “Friends With Benefits” — Follows romcom formulas as if directed by an autopilot, but that’s not to say it isn’t fun. Mila Kunis plays Jamie, an executive headhunter in New York City. Justin Timberlake plays Dylan, the hotshot behind a popular website. They agree to have sex without emotional attachment, and you know how well that works. But they’re both the real thing when it comes to light comedy. Not a great movie, but I enjoyed them in it. DVD Extras: Audio commentary, deleted scenes and outtakes; Blu-ray Extras: Additional featurettes and a pop-up trivia track. Rating: Three stars. 109 minutes. (R) “The Future” — Sophie (Miranda July) and Jason (Hamish Linklater) have been together about four years. They live in a sort of indefinitely attenuated present tense. They decide to adopt a sick cat. Caring for this cat will be a full-time task. Seeking something to commit to, they prefer a sick cat to a well one. An enchanting whimsy about two people playing with the timelines of their lives. DVD Extras: Featurette, deleted scenes and audio commentary. Rating: Three and a half stars. 91 minutes. (no MPAA rating)

The Associated Press

Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess star in “One Day.” “One Day” — Based on the David Nicholls best-seller about a boy and girl who graduate from the University of Edinburgh on July 15, 1988, and spend the night together. The story follows them by dropping in on July 15 of their lives for year after year. Dexter (Jim Sturgess) is an upper-class twit. Emma (Anne Hathaway) is an earnest, hard-working girl. Somehow they have a bond that endures. A decent enough rom-com, if a letdown after “An Education,” the previous film by Lone Scherfig. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Three featurettes, deleted scenes and audio commentary. Rating: Three stars. 108 minutes. (PG-13) “Our Idiot Brother” — Paul Rudd stars in an engaging role as a really nice guy, sweet and gentle, who always tells the truth and often therefore wreaks havoc in the lives of his sisters (Emily Mortimer, Elizabeth Banks and Zooey Deschanel). A good-hearted comedy with generous wit, and a first-rate cast also including Steve Coogan, Shirley Knight and Rashida Jones. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Featurette, deleted and extended scenes and audio commentary. Rating: Three stars. 96 minutes. (R) “Seven Days In Utopia” — The dreadful parable of a pro golfer (Lucas Black) who was abused by his dad, melts down in the Texas Open, and stumbles into the clutches of an insufferable geezer in the town of Utopia (pop. 375) who promises him that after seven days in Utopia he will be playing great golf. The geezer is played by Robert Duvall. Only a great actor could give such a bad performance. I was looking for a twinkle in his eye as he inflicts young Luke with his hogwash, but unfortunately the character is intended to be real. Only exposing him as a boring fraud could possibly redeem him. The three great secrets of golf, we learn, are to “See it. Feel it. Trust it.” DVD Extras: Three featurettes. Rating: One star. 105 minutes. (G) ALSO OUT THIS WEEK: “The Smurfs” COMING UP: Movies scheduled for national release Dec. 6 include “Cowboys & Aliens,” “The Debt,” “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” “The Help” and “The Hangover Part II.” Check with local video stores for availability. — Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times (“DVD and Blu-ray Extras” from wire and online sources)





From Pag e 27 “J. Edgar” — Clint Eastwood’s biopic of “America’s top cop,” possibly a repressed homosexual, who maintained a buttoned-down facade and focused his passion on the burnishing of his public image. By maintaining secret FBI files on those in power, he kept his job from 1924 until 1972, under eight presidential administrations, during most of those years living with the handsome bachelor agent Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer). Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance is fully realized, subtle and persuasive, hinting at more than Hoover ever revealed, perhaps even to himself. Rating: Three and a half stars. 136 minutes. (R) “Jack and Jill” — Among the famous people who make cameo appearances in the new Adam Sandler comedy “Jack and Jill”: Johnny Depp, John McEnroe, David Spade, Shaquille O’Neal, Drew Carrey, Christie Brinkley, Michael Irvin, Regis Philbin, Dana Carvey and even Jared Fogle, the guy from the Subway sandwich commercials. Total number of laughs all this amassed star power generates: One. “Jack and Jill” contains long stretches of squirm-inducing tedium in which Adam Sandler riffs and ad-libs far longer than he should, as if he thought that wearing a dress would immediately turn anything he did into comedy gold. Playing Jack Sadelstein, an L.A. ad exec dreading the annual holiday visit of his twin sister Jill (also Sandler), the actor is obviously having fun. But the party doesn’t include the audience. Rating: One star. 90 minutes. (PG) — Rene Rodriguez, The Miami Herald

“Midnight in Paris” — Woody Allen’s enchanting new comedy stars Owen Wilson as an American who visits Paris with his fiancee (Rachel McAdams), and finds himself seduced by dreams of living there in the 1920s when Hemingway and Fitzgerald hung out at Gertrude Stein’s fabled salon. With charm and whimsy, Allen tickles the fantasies of everyone who ever loved an American lit class. With Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, French first lady Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard and Michael Sheen. Rating: Three and a half stars. 94 minutes. (PG-13) “Moneyball” — An uncommonly intelligent movie about a showdown in Major League Baseball between human instinct and abstract statistics. Based on the true story of the 2002 Oakland Athletics, it stars Brad Pitt as the team’s general manager, Jonah Hill as a nerdy Yale statistician, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as the hostile manager. Not a traditional sports movie, but one about big business and courage in management. The dialogue is smart and witty. Spellbinding. Rating: Four stars. (PG-13) “The Muppets” — The Muppets have retired and almost been forgotten, when Walter, his human pal, Gary (Jason Segel), and Gary’s girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), take a trip to visit the old Muppet Studios. They find them derelict, threatened by a millionaire who wants to level the ground and drill for oil. So, yes, hey, kids! Let’s put on a show! The Muppets and some human friends stage a telethon to save the Bend Redmond 541.388.2333 541.548.9159

Owen Wilson stars as Gil and Marion Cotillard stars as Adriana in “Midnight in Paris.” studios. This is a funny and wickedly selfaware musical that explains by its very premise why some younger viewers may not be up-to-date on Muppet lore. Rating: Three stars. 98 minutes. (PG) “Puss in Boots” — DreamWorks’ cunning casting of the silky Spaniard Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling Puss in Boots pays off, brilliantly, in “Puss in Boots,” a star vehicle for the nursery rhyme kitty cat from the “Shrek” movies. Thanks to Banderas and his Corinthianleather purr and writers who know how to use it, “Puss” is the best animated film of 2011. This is no mere “Shrek” sequel. There is sex appeal in every syllable, swagger in every line. And even kids get the joke of a voice that sensual and grand coming out of a kitty so small. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Three and a half stars. 89 minutes. (PG) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“The Skin I Live In” — Antonio Banderas plays a mad scientist who holds a beautiful woman (Elena Anaya) as his prisoner, and conducts bizarre surgeries to create for her a superior, fireproof skin. The story coils through a labyrinthine plot of past and present, mistaken identities, misunderstood guilt and twisted psychology. As voluptuously beautiful as Pedro Almodovar’s films always are, his hero is disquieting in the way he assumes godlike powers over others. Rating: Three stars. 117 minutes. (R) “Take Shelter” — A thriller of terrifying and ominous force, as an Ohio construction worker (Michael Shannon) is tortured by fears for his family, and seeks help for his terrors but also takes practical steps. One of the year’s best performances, in a film based not on horror film techniques but on widely shared human dreads. With Jessica Chastain as his loving and concerned wife. Rating: Four stars. 124 minutes. (R)

“The Three Musketeers” — The director, Paul W.S. Anderson, brings to this costume party the same batteringram sensibility he brought to “Alien Versus Predator,” “Death Race” and the ongoing “Resident Evil” franchise. The 1844 Dumas adventure classic is now a steampunk’d migraine. Clashing swords — 3-D swords in your face! — purloined jewels and court intrigues no longer suffice. This movie couldn’t give a rip about that stuff. It exists for its digital airborne sailing vessels and deadly retrofuturistic flamethrowers. Rating: One star. 102 minutes. (PG-13) — Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“Tower Heist” — Not a great heist movie for a lot of reasons, beginning with the stupidity of its plan and the impossibility of the characters being successful at anything more complex than standing in line. But it’s funny in a screwball way. Alan Alda is a Ponzi scheme shark whose solid gold Ferrari must be stolen from a penthouse condo directly above the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. With Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Gabourey Sidibe and Casey Affleck. Directed by Brett Ratner. Rating: Two and a half stars. 104 minutes. (PG-13) “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” — After defending her virginity for the previous three movies in the series, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) allows the vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) to take her to the altar, after which they have an idyllic Brazilian honeymoon and she quickly gets preggers, leading to distressing problems. Absorbing, if somewhat slow-paced, and Stewart is affecting in her performance. But why is this film, with the most blood-curdling scene of live childbirth in memory, rated PG-13? Rating: Two and a half stars. 117 minutes. (PG-13)
