WASHINGTON — Say goodbye to the "fiscal cliff" and hello to the debt ceiling. On Wednesday, as the implications of last minute votes in the Senate and House of Representatives to avoid sending the U.S. economy plunging over the so-called fiscal cliff sank in, members of Oregon's congressional delegation began to look ahead to the next possible showdown. "These next few months are not going to be for the faint-hearted," said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. Thanks to a convergence of three financial deadlines, congressionalleaders may find themselves back at the negotiating table in a matter of weeks, dealing with the same issues they were unable to solve during the latest round of maneuvering. First, the "fiscal cliff" deal postponed the automatic cutstodefense and discretionary spending known as sequestration for only two months, meaning they will go into effect March I

The last time the country hit the debt ceiling, party leaders were unable to strike a grand bargain on deficit reduction, and the resulting deal created sequestration's mandatory cuts. Third, the continuing resolution that funds government operationsexpires March 27. Without Congress authorizing additional funds,the federalgovernment could face a possible shutdown.

"These next few months are not going to be for the fainthearted." — Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

"It's going to be a very intense period trying to forge this path. If we're going to avoid another (crisis followed by a short-term

solution), we're going to have to have a coherent plan." — Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.

"It's time for the president to

work with Congress to get our nation's fiscal house in order

by addressing the underlying problem, which is spending." — Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River

without additional action by

Congress. Second, the government is on the verge of hitting the debt ceiling, the limit on how much money it is authorized to borrow. President Barack


Obama has said he will not negotiate over raising the debt ceiling, which is necessary for the government to honor its existing debts, but it does give Republicans some bargaining leverage.

Medicare and taxes For Wyden, the short-term deal provides a small window for Congress to address two main issues: Medicare and tax reform. Because of shifting demographics — over the next decade-plus, 10,000 Americans a day will turn 65 — and rising health care costs, Medicare threatens to dwarf other potential deficit reduction efforts, he said. "If you duck Medicare, you're basically ducking budget reform," Wyden said. "Absent reform, it will eventually engulf the federal

budget." See D.C. /A4

Incomedistribution inBend,Oregonandthe U.S. As part of the new legislation passed Tuesday to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff," the tax rate for households earning more than $450,000 ($400,000 for individuals) will increase from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. The legislation also kept in place most of the Bush-era tax cuts for

households making less than $450,000. What the legislation did not do, however, is prevent a Social Security payroll tax break from expiring. The payroll tax break was enacted in 2011 and renewed in 2012, and reduced the Social Security tax paid by workers by 2 percent, or about $1,000 in 2012 for a household making $50,000 a year. In addition, households making more than $250,000 a year will see a new tax of 3.8

The city of Bend plans to begin talking with business owners this month about a new program to encourage them to reduce the amount of pollution in the wastewater they send into city sewers. The program, which is still being designed, will also charge businesses closer to the actual cost for the city to treat higher levels of waste in water discharged by businesses such as hospitals, restaurants, grocery stores, breweries and auto repair shops. Currently, these businesses do not pay more, despite putting more waste into the system. Bend Business Advocate Carolyn Eagan said city workers will begin visiting businesses later this month to discussthe program the city is developing and answer questions. The city organized a group of business owners and other citizens to make recommendations to the city, and this committee would like the new wastewater program to apply to all businesses, Eagan said. "We really are doing what we can to talk to people ahead of time," Eagan said. SeeWastewater/A4

In prison, extorting from outside By Rhonda Cook Atlanta Journal-Constitution

ATLANTA — First there was a picture sent to Jimenna Whitner's cellphone of her brother, who was bloody and beaten. Next, she got a text message fromsomewhere inside Baldwin State Prison 950 miles from her home in Michigan, demanding $1,000. Otherwise her inmate brother, Thomas Maher, would be killed. "From the pictures and stuff we knew they weren't playing," said Whitner, who earns $800 to $900 a month cleaning rental mobile homes for new tenants. "We don't have money." But Whitner found a way to pay the inmates who had allegedly punched and kicked her brother, a convicted rapist, for about two hours in a cell block shower. SeePrison /A5

SONOMA, Calif. — Under rows of old chicken sheds, Jack Chambers has built an empire of huge metal boxes filled with cattle manure and millions of wriggling red worms. "My buddies all had planes and boats," said Chambers, 60, a former airline pilot. "I have a worm farm." Chambers' two decades of investment in what he calls an "underground movement"may be paying off. New research suggests that t h e p r o duct whose manufacture he helped pioneer, a worm-created soil additive called vermicompost, offers an array of benefits for plants — helping them grow with more vigor, and making them more resistant to disease and insects, than those grown with other types of composts and fertilizers. The earthworm's digestive process, it turns out, "is a really nice incubator for microorganisms," said Norman Arancon, an assistant professor of horticulture at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. And these microbes, which multiply rapidly when they are excreted, alter the ecosystem of the soiL Some make nitrogen more available to plant roots, accounting forthe increased growth. The h ig h d i versity and numbers of microbes outperform those in the soil that cause disease. By contrast, Arancon said, soil that has been heavily exposed to synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides lacks microbial richness and diversity, qualities that can be restored naturally by adding the microbes from worms. Some experts and entrepreneurs hope earthworms can also help with anotherproblem: the growing piles of animal waste from dairy farms and other agricultural operations. Worm Power, a company in Avon, N.Y., transforms 10 million pounds of manure from a single dairy herd each year — about 40 percent of the cattle's output — into 2.5 million pounds of vermicompost. Tom Herlihy, a former municipal waste engineer who founded the companyin2003, says ithas raised more than $6 million in venture capital and $2 million in grants for research, much of it at Cornell University. Here in Northern California, Chambers' Sonoma Valley Worm Farm produces about half a million pounds of similar compost, an amount he plans to increase in the spring. He loads a long metal bin with cow manure and 300,000 to 400,000 Eisenia fetida, or red wigglers — weighing 300 to 400 pounds. In their wake, the worms leave cattle waste that has been processed intorich and crumbly castings that look like fine peat moss.

Jack Chambers, a former airline pilot, helped pioneer the manufacture of vermicompost, a highly valued soil additive produced by earthworms. Chambers owns Sonoma Valley Worm Farm in California, where he produces an estimated half-million pounds of vermicompost annually.

Chambers holds a handful of red wiggler worms, which are used to manufacture vermicompost at Sonoma Valley Worm Farm. It takes six months for a vermicompost bed to become fully mature, by which time I million worms roam the manure. Chambers continues to add two yards of manure and harvest one yard of worm compost weekly. The finished product is shaved, an inch at a time, off the bottom of the bin. An established bed can go on this way for years. B oth ope r ations pr e compost theirmanure before they fork it over to the worms. That means piling it up and allowing it to get naturally hot enough to kill unwanted seeds and pathogens like E. coli. The properties of worm compost are different from fertilizer or manure. "It's interesting and complicated," said Rhonda Sherman, an extension specialist at North Carolina State University who has taught vermicomposting around theworld formore than 30 years and who holds an annual conference on the subject. "Certain plants might react well to v ermicompost from dairy manure," she said, "and other plants might react better to food-waste vermicompost." That has led to "boutique composting," with different blends for different kinds of plants.

A West C oast company, California Soils, uses worms to break down cardboard waste fibers that are too short to be recycled. The glue used to bind the paperserves isan important source of nitrogen for the worms. "It's a really good product for nut farmers and stone fruit farmers," Mitch Davis, a company spokesman, said of the compost, adding that it also helps control nutgall, a fungal disease that afflicts walnut trees. Worms were said to be Darwin's favorite organism, and for good reason: It seems they can break down most anything. Studies have shown they can detoxify soil with cadmium, lead and other heavy metals. Another product made from worm waste is a concentrate, sometimes called tea, t h at Chambers extracts using an aerator. Arancon said even a I percent solution of the extract had the same propertiesas vermicompost. At Cornell, Eric Nelson, a plant pathologist, is studying how compost suppresses disease. Worm Power's product, he says, does a better job than traditional compost, perhaps because theworm compost is

highly uniform. "The key is understanding why these microbes do what they do," Nelson said. The worm compost is considered valuable enough to fetch almost 10 times the price of other composts. Still, the i ndustry suffers from image problems. "It's hard to bring it out of the 'It's cute to have a worm box in my backyard' approach and put it on par with other strategies for waste management," said Allison Jack, who earned her doctorate by studying vermicompost at Cornell and is now teaching at Prescott College in Arizona. The quality of products varies widely,and because there are no i n dustry standards, anyone can call a p r o duct verm>compost. For a time, the worm business was a haven for swindlers. Companies would sell worms to growers, who were told they could raise more worms and produce vermicompost,which they could then sell back. Some of these offers turned out to be Ponzi schemes. Still, the properties of vermicompost have long been recognized by growers. Jeff Dawson, the curator of gardens at the Round Pond Estate winery in the Napa Valley, swears by Chambers' castings, w hich he has used for more than a decade. "A cup or half a cup in the hole as we plant each vine increases the vine's ability to establish itself at a much faster pace," Dawson said. "And it creates a healthier plant." This being California, some of Chambers' customers are medical marijuana growers, and he likes the way growers do business. "They hand you cash," he said.

Scientists an al y z ing Australian rocks have discovered tracesof bacteria that lived a record-breaking 3.49 billion years ago, a mere billion years after Earth formed. If the find withstands the scrutiny that inevitably faces claims of fossils this old, it could move scientists one step closer to understanding the first chapters of life on Earth. The discovery could also spur the search for ancient life on other planets. These tracesof bacteria "are the oldest fossils ever described. Those are our oldest ancestors," said Nora Noffke, a biogeochemist at Old Dominion University in Norfolk who was part of the group that made the find and presented it last month at a meeting of the Geological Society of America. Unlike dinosaur bones, the newly identified fossils are not petrified body parts. They're textures on the surfaces of sandstone thought to be sculpted by once-liv-

ing organisms. Today, similar patterns decorate parts of Tunisia's coast, created by thick mats of bacteria that trap and glue together sand particles. Sand that is stuck to the land beneath the mats and thus protected from erosion can over time turn into rock that can long outlast the living organisms above it. Finding the earliest remnants of thisprocess required a long, hard look at some of the planet's oldest rocks, located in Western Australia's Pilbara region. This a n cient l a n dscape was once shoreline. Rocks made from sediment piled up billions of years ago are now exposed and available for examination. Relatively pristine in condition, such outcrops, along with others in S o uth A f r i ca, have long been a popular place to look for traces of life from the Archean eon, which ended 2.5 b i llion

years ago. There are older rocks on Earth, said Maud Walsh, a biogeologist at L ouisiana State University in Baton Rouge. "But these are the best-preserved s e dimentary rocks we know of, the ones most likely to preserve the really tiny structures and chemicals that provide evidence for life." "It's not j ust f i n ding this stuff that's interesting," says Alan Decho, a geobiologist at the University of S outh Carolina's Arnold School of Public Health. "It's showing that the life had some organization to it."

7. Repair the railroads. Section 306 will extend a hefty tax credit to railroads for maintenance work.

The Internal Revenue Service has long worked with state and federal prisons to crack down on fraud among prisoners who are filing tax returns.But as more states have been contracting out their jails and prisons to for-profit companies, the IRS has had difficulty sharing data with private contractors. Section 209 allows the IRS to share its files with private prisons. 10. Provide incentives for commuters to take the bus or

The t w o b e nefits were set at equal levels for a brief period after the stimulus bill, and they've just been set at equal levels again for 2012 and 2013. There's some evidence that this change induces more people to take transit to work. This item will cost $220 million.

D.C. Continued from A1 Members of both parties understand the numbers, so it's less a question of substance than of finding the political will to make tough decisions, he said. On taxes, there is common ground on simplifying the tax code by "cleaning out a lot of the ridiculous tax preferences and special interest loopholes" in order to broaden the tax base and keep rates low and progressive, he said. "Tax reform is very hard because special interest groups pound our members hard to keep their preferences," he sard. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., said the new Congress needs to hit the ground running after it is sworn in. "It's going to be a very intense period trying to forge this path. If w e're going to avoid another (crisis followed by a short-term solution), we're going to have to have a coherent plan," he said. On the surface, it's clear the "fiscal cliff" deal will not have a major impact on the deficit, he said. The tax increase on individuals and households that earn more than $400,000 and $ 450,000, respectively, w i l l generate $600 billion in revenues over 10 years. But $60 billion ayear represents roughly 6 percent of the annual $1 trillion deficit, Merkley said.

framework to i n crease revenues and cut spending until those numbers gradually converge, he said. "We know if we close that gap too quickly, we send the country into r ecession," he said. Economists have suggested that the $1.2 trillion of mandatory spending cuts would do just that, so sequestration s hould be r eplaced with a combination of revenue and cuts, Merkley said. Because the "fiscal cliff" deal increased revenues by raising taxes on the wealthy, some members will say the next deal has to be all cuts, he predicted.

A hunter's trail camera captured an image of what is believed to be OR7 in November 2011. The 3'/s-year-old wolf has traveled more than 3,000 miles since leaving his pack in northeastern Oregon.

Wolf Continued from A1 Not only has he traveled more than 3,000 miles since leaving his pack in northeastern Oregon, he's demonstrated exceptional homing abilities. "He can find the same locations (after) weeks, sometimes a couple of months, coming back from a completely different direction," said Karen Kovacs, wildlife program manager for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. S ince summer, OR7 h a s s pent most of h i s t i m e i n western Plumas and eastern Tehama counties on a mix of public and private lands, with some jaunts into neighboring Butte County. He seems to dine mostly on mule deer, following their seasonal migrations from mountains to lower elevations. Fortunately for him, he has avoided people and livestock. The wolf was accused of killing a cow and her calf and some other livestock, but Kovacs said investigations found no evidence that OR7 was the culprit. The cow died giving birth to the calf, which was either born dead or died soon after birth and was then eaten

biologists expect more wolves to follow. The Fish and Wildlife Department intends to prepare a wolf management plan forthe state,and conservationists have formed an alliance topromote wolf recovery on the West Coast. "It's a different environment" in t h e P acific Coast states than i n t h e i n t erior West, said Weiss, Northern California representative of the California Wolf Center. Idaho, Montana and Wyoming authorized gray w olf hunts a f te r t h e no r t hern Rocky Mountain population was removed from the endangered specieslist. Hundreds of wolves have been shot and trapped in the last couple of years, including the popular alpha female from a Yellowstone National Park pack who wandered outside the park. OR7 "was smart enough to come here instead of Idaho," Weiss said. "The Pacific Coast may be the only area in the U.S. where wolves are allowed to survive and thrive."

Continued from A1 She raised the money from relatives and paid the inmates through "Green Dot" c ash cards that carry VISA or MasterCard logos. Seeing the pictures, "I threw up. I was in shock for a minute," she said. Georgia inmates have found a way to reach beyond metal doors and bars, concrete walls and razor wire to victimize those on the outside, family members and prisoners say. Corrections oNcials say they have found nothing to support individual claims of extortion. But they concede the ongoing problem with cellphones, which are not allowed in prison, makes it easy for inmates to continue to prey on others.

The DOC s ays m ultiple i nvestigations h av e f o u n d little evidence to support the claims. Ricky Myrick, director of the Office of Investigations and Compliance at the Department of C orrections, said there have been 25 to 30 reports of extortion. In some cases, inmates would not cooperate with i nvestigations, he said. In other instances "the only thing we've been able to verify is some of the inmates themselves are willing participants," Myrick said. "The true catalyst behind our problem still reverts back to the cellphones," Myrick sard. Myrick said th e a gency has tried unsuccessfully to persuade federal regulators and the cellphone providers

to support a "low-cost solution to a serious public safety issue. That would stop ... all types of fraud. Not just extortion,"No one — not even employees — are allowed to bring cellphones into a prison. Yet inmates can buy them, at inflated costs, from staff willing to smuggle them in for a price. Myrick said DOC employees who had been caught selling cellphones to inmates were paid via Green Dot cards, transactions that require only the number on the cards but not an ID to deposit or to withdraw funds. That is the same method inmates allegedly are using to extort money from people outside prison walls. "They move this m oney card to card and ... you can lose the money in a couple of days and never know where it came from," Myrick said. "This is the new way they do things. That's what's driving the contraband trade."

"His right eye socket looked to be punched in," Whitner said."He told me his teeth were loose. His nasal passage on his right side was punched in." Brenda Keck of Rossville said she got a similar demand last August in a call that came at 2:30 in the morning. Keck said inmates at Hays State Prison in northwest Georgia sent an image of her son tied up, blindfolded and at knifepoint. They wanted $500 but she persuaded them to drop their demand to $300 after explaining that she and her husband were disabled. She had an hour to go to a nearby Wal-Mart in Walker County to buy a Green Dot card. "Theytalkedtomethewhole time while they are threatening to kill my son," said Keck.

by coyotes. There have been a number of reported sightings of the 3/2 year-old wolf, but only a few havebeen confirmed. One was in a state wildlife area in November, when a man hunting with his daughter saw a group of deer emerge from a woodland. Behind it was a single deer running from what appeared to be a wolf. The animal broke off the chase, looked in the direction of the hunters and trotted away. The excited pair reported the sighting, and radio signals placed OR7 in the area. "The timing, the behavior, the location; we're pretty sure it was OR7," Kovacs said. Although he has journeyed much farther from his home pack than is typical, the wolf is doing what young males do, searching for a mate and other wolves with which to form a pack. He returns to areas wherehe has lefthis scent, hoping to find signs of other wolves. It is possible that other gray wolves without radio collars have crossed into the Northern California wilds from Oregon, where there are a number of packs. But biologists have found no evidence of them, and Kovacs said the chances are slim that OR7 will find a mate in California. But he has found food and remote country and appears to be healthy. "Being an apex predator in a landscape that hasn't had one for a pretty long time — he's got it pretty good right now," said Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild, an environmental advocacy group. Gray wolves in California are protectedunder the federal Endangered Species Act. After OR7's arrival, several conservation o r g a nizations petitioned the Fish and Wildlife Department to place the species on the state endangered list; and the department is now preparing a report on the matter. Boards of supervisors in severalnorthern counties oppose a state listing, and ranchers in the rural areas where OR7 is roaming have not exactly rolled out the welcome mat. "Clearly there are some who are wolf lovers and some who are wolf haters," said Kovacs, who has made wolf presentations at public meetings. Regardless of whether OR7 stays in California, wildlife

rivers in the Amazon system. Where the Amazon descends just 80 meters over its length of almost 4,000 miles, the Xingu drops 90 meters over a 60mile segment here. And it is special for another reason, da Silva says. "Getting close now," he says. He putters past another sign, this one bobbing in the water: Do not enter.

Dam will be built in stages

WI By Matthew Teague eLos Angeles Times SANTO ANTONIO, Brazil-

The wind blows in from the river, mingling with the scent of the day's last meal in the kitchen. The smells of work and home for Valcione da Silva. He sits on a worn bench and Matthew Teague / Les Angeles Times

watches children play on the floor, laughing. Somewhere outside, a siren begins, long and loud. Da Silva reaches beneath his bench to retrieve two knives, double-edged like daggers. They're not weapons, he says, clattering them together. They're special fishing tools. "Only wood," he says. He ignores the siren. He pulls out what appears to be a string of plastic Coke bottles dangling from a belt. "Look," he says, pressing into the side of a bottle. It flexes open along a slit in the plastic. When he lets go, it springs closed again. "Very simple. I can keep them alive in here." His fish are delicate, he says. A moment later a boom shakes the little home, and a concussion rolls the air like a wave on the river. Dirt dances onthe floor.The nearly bare shelves rattle. Another boom, and outside in the yard, the leaves of da Silva's mango tree flicker green and silver. Da Silva walks to his doorway with his wooden daggers, and looks like a man standing at the edge of the world. During the past year, the villagers around him have packed up and left. A few days ago the school closed, because all but da Silva's children had left. His wife was the teacher, so she continues their lessons at home. Santo Antonio would look like a ghost town, except that bulldozers have leveled all the empty homes. Da Silva watches the trucks as they rumble past, carrying countless tons of earth, blown with dynamite from the hillsides where he was born. "I want to stay and fish," the 36-year-old says. But it's early December, and he'll have to leave soon; clever men with clipboards have outmaneuvered him. In the morning, he says, he will do the only thing within his power. He'll break the law.

Resisting progress Progress and the past are colliding at da Silva's doorway. His small home sits at the foot of the Belo Monte dam site, where a con-

sortium is building the third-largest dam in the world, almost four miles across the Xingu River, a $16 billion construction project in the heart of the Amazon basin. Indigenous tribes and environmental groups have cried out against the dam for reasons local and global; the tribes depend on the mighty Xingu River — one of the Amazon's largest tributaries — for transportation, and their livelihoods. Environmental groups say the dam will destroy rain forest that the world needs to breathe. The builders counter that millions of Brazilians need the electricity, and construction continues. There had always been talk of a gigantic dam. During the dictatorships of the 1970s, important men had m ade speeches about the riches ofthe Amazon, waiting to be discovered. In 1972, President Emilio Medici had shown up with a construction crew just outside Santo Antonio. The president cut down a Brazil nut tree — a symbol of the rain forest — and stood on its fresh stump to make a speech about bringing industry, roads and population to the Amazon. Part of the plan, starting in 1975, was to build a massive hydroelectric dam. There's a pattern, in Brazilian history, of industries focusing on one natural resource, stripping it, and moving on to another. When Portuguese colonials arrived, the Brazil nut tree was so plentiful the explorers named the country after it. Now the trees are endangered. Later prospectors found so much gold they named an entire state Minas Generais, or General Mines. The gold is dwindling too. The same happened with the rubber trees, and the diamonds. The A m a zon's r i ve r s y s tem, though, seemed to resist progress for many years. The first bridge in the entire Amazon basin wasn't built until 2010. The area was too difficult to

Valcione da Silva holds a tiny fish he caught in the Xlngu River in Brazil. A planned dam of the river will force da Silva from his home. reach. Too wild a riverbed. Populated by too wild a people. The dictator's workers symbolically paved the top of the stump where Medici stood to make his speech, and today it stands shrunken and cracked. Now an enormous concrete power pole looms over the stump. It's one of an endless series of identical towers, marching electricity to the reawakened site of the dam called Belo Monte: the Beautiful Mountain.

Who gets the power? M en came to Da Silva's door a cou-

ple of years ago and knocked. We are subcontractorsto Norte Energia, the head man told him. We are building the dam. They entered his home with a clipboard, writing a list of all his meager possessions. He followed them from one small room to another, as questions tumbled through hi s m i n d: What on earth is Norte Energia? And why do these men have a clipboard? Life in Santo Antonio had stayed quiet for the past three decades, but elsewhere in Brazil a revolution had been under way: an industrial, financial and cultural revolution. The country hadrecently surpassed Britain to become the sixth-largest economy in the world. And the Brazilian machine needs electricity. "Electricity is development," said Joao Pimentel, director of institutional relations for Norte Energia, a consortium of private and state-held companies that plans to begin operating Belo Monte in 2015. "Without electricity we will go nowhere." "If all the electricity went to homes, the dam would provide power for 60 million people, Pimentel said. It won't do that, exactly. Seventy percent of the dam's power will flow to public utilities, sold on the national grid forbusiness and domestic consumption. The other 30 percent will

be divided between shareholders. So how many Brazilian citizens will receive electricity once it trickles down'? "It's difficult to say," Pimentel said. "That's a lie," said professor Rodolfo Salm, who researches ecology at the federal university in Altamira, the largest town near the dam site. "This energy is not for homes, it is for mining." As Brazil expands its economic reach in the world, Salm said, it exports more goods. Aluminum, for instance. "It takes a lot of energy to produce aluminum," he said. "In Japan, theyneed aluminum but have an energy shortage. So what we are really doing is exporting energy."

A furtive fishing trip Da Silva's brother-in-law, Alessandro da Silva, joins him, and they sling their equipment in packs over their shoulders. They climb onto da Silva's off-road motorcycle. He fires it up, and the two scoot intothe rumble of transfer trucks. Dust coats the men, and the tires of the other vehicles tower above them. Gigantic machines scrape and gouge and dynamite rock and dirt and load it into the trucks, which haul it to other sites, where they unload and repeat. Da Silva and Alessandro weave through a landscape that stopped resembling the rain forest long ago; now it looks lunar. Off a side road they pass the village's empty church, and the demolished houses of their former neighbors. As they get closer to the Xingu River the signs start appearing: Do not enter, they say. This land is now protected by the law. Do not enter. The two men drop on their motorbike over the riverbank, out of sight. Working quickly, they slide down the bank to their dugout canoe, crank its small motor and then navigate into the Xingu. The Xingu is special, among all

The Belo M o nte p r oject i tself was deemed illegal, briefly, by the Brazilian federal court. In mid-August, the court intervened to halt all construction. Two weeks later, the Supreme Court reversed the decision. Civil rights and environmental groups cried out against the decision, claiming the courts had bowed to pressure from Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, whose 2011 election was underwritten in part by the companies interested in building the dam. The dam is a complex, multi-stage affair, but it will work like this: The Xingu flows downhill from Altamira to Santo Antonio — Valcione da Silva's village — where the water will crank the dam's turbines. Between those two points, though, the river swings through what locals call the Big Bend. It's a wide loop where botanists, zoologists and anthropologists study life of all sorts; it's also flat, so the river loses much of its valuable energy. So a support dam will shunt most of the Xingu directly from Altamira to the dam, through a man-made canal.It will cut out the Big Bend — and slowly lower the river there.

Beneath the surface Valcione da Silva steers his dugout boat around a final bend. He will take the settlement, he says. He has no choice. Norte Energia alone cannot cast him from his home, butthe government can. He will have to take the money — about $20,000, he says — and move from his home. But he will hold out as long as possible. He stops the boat at the center of the river, and Alessandro throws out the anchor. At the center of the boat, da Silva takes the cover off a funny old engine, which looks like something salvaged from a steam ship. It's bright yellow, all gears and wheels and chains. It sputters to life. "Air compressor," Da Silva says. Two plastic tubes run from the engine, and the two men each place the free ends in their mouths. They pull on goggles, strap the Coke bottles around their waists, and tuck the wooden daggers into their belts. They leap. Slowly he finds them — the beautiful fish. Ornate, tiny fish. Rare fish. At the market in Altamira he can sell them for $2 or $3, although they will sell for a hundred times that much eventually. He doesn't know the scientific names, or the ones they'll have by the time they reach aquariums in Tokyo or New York. But here they're called the zebra, the old black man, the tiger. They resist, hiding under the river rocks. But his daggers eventually, inevitably, sweep them from their homes.

31.3M in loans By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

Bank of the Cascades has suedlocalrestaurateur Hao "Howie" Long, claiming he and his companies owe the bank more than $1.3 million. According to the lawsuit, Long, through his companies HDTL Inc. and Lonka LLC, borrowed the money from the bank beginning in 2008, and during 2012 stopped making payments on the loans. The bulk of the funds in question stems from a $1.265 milhon construction loan the bank gave Lonka in 2008 for a property at Southeast Bridgeford Boulevard. According to Deschutes County property records,

one of Long's companies bought the building in 2006 for $475,000. The property is now worth slightly more than $669,000. The building, surrounded largely by industrial and commercial properties and largely empty, has a sign out front advertising it as for sale or lease. Long, according to city business license applications, is owner or co-owner of downtown Bend spots La Magie Bakery, 5 Fusion & Sushi Bar, and Soba Asian Bistro; Level 2, a bar in the Old Mill; Szechuan Restaurant in northeast Bend and Tomo Japanese Restaurant on the south end of Bend.

After receiving the construction loan in 2008, Long's company provided the bank with a promissory note for $1.25 million in August 2011, with a maturity date of August 2016. Over 59 months, payments were tobe almost $8,000. Long's company has stopped making those payments, the lawsuit alleges. The bank sent two letters,in September and November, calling the loan. But as of Dec. 10, 2012, Long's company still owed the bank nearly $1.3 million. That's not the only loan problem plaguing Long and his companies. Through his company HDTL, Long receiveda $150,000 loan from the bank in October 2008. That note is due in January 2015, but the lawsuit

Workers take down former

The Bulletin

REDMOND — Students returning to Redmond High School from winter break Monday will have a renovated wing of classrooms awaiting them. Redmond High's estimated $93 million renovation is giving students at the school a totally different look — with more windows, natural light and better acoustics. The east wing has been finished and students will learn in its nine classrooms as renovations continue in the west wing for the rest of the school year. To accommodatethe ongoing work, some classes are being shuffled around. Students who had classes in the west wing of the building during fall will move to the east wing. The school's office staff is printing new class schedules for returning students, said assistant principal Tony Pupo. Even though the project isn't finished, students will benefit from the completed portions of the renovation, he said. "They're going to come back and be able to live in this new space so even though we'll be under construction, they'll at least feel like they're in a new area," Pupo said. The finished portion contains a careercenter — a new feature forthe school. The center offers students resources for looking up information

needed for their post-high school plans, such as financial aid and college scholarship resources. Counseling offices are next to the center and the school's offices are nearby, providing a centralized spot for administrative staff. Before the renovation, administrative staff were scattered throughout the building, Pupo said. The interior classroom walls of the school, built in 1971, will be thicker. That will bring an end to past problems of students hearing noise from neighboring classrooms, Pupo said. Faith Irick, 17, a junior at the school, dropped by Wednesday and saw the new wing. She said the windows and spacious atmosphere are a welcome change. "Now it's very open," she said. "It's just

amazing." When the project is completed, the renovated west wing will have 11 classrooms and two computer labs. While construction proceeds, the school is using 10 modular classrooms to provide needed space. The renovation should be finished in the spring, possibly by April, Pupo said. The school won't need to use modular classrooms when classes resume in fall 2013, he said. The renovation is covered by funds from a $110 million bond that voters approved in 2008 to build Ridgeview High School and provide for school improvements throughout the district. — Reporter: 541-977-7185;

alleges Long has stopped paying on that loan as well, and still owes more than $71,000. Included as an exhibit in the lawsuit is a letter from Bend attorney Martin Hansen stating Long has no assets available to pay the bank. "My clients had previously provided the Bank with financial statements that show that none of the borrowers or guarantors has the ability to pay either the loan on this building or any deficiency that may be generated," Hansen wrote in October. "The Bank has previously proposed to take a deed in lieu of foreclosure on the building." Hansen did not return a call for comment, nor did Peter Hicks, attorney for Bank of the Cascades. But a November letter from an attorney for Bank of the Cascades said the bank is not willing to accept a deed in lieu of foreclosure. SeeSuit/B2

CLACKAMAS — Hundreds of people gathered spontaneously at the Clackamas High School baseball field after t hey l e arned about the death of the 7year-old son of the baseball coach. Jacob Arntson was riding with his father, John Arntson, on Interstate 84 Monday afternoon when their pickup slid on ice over the guardrail and into the Columbia River near Mosier, east of Hood River.

Assistant baseball coach Tom Bohlman told KATU that many high school students knew Jacob. They left balloons, flowers and toys on the baseball field Tuesday in an improvised memorial. "They loved him. Everybody was drawn to Jake," Bohlman said. "All the high school kids out here liked to play with Jake. Jake would get into, like I said, mischief. Get into the dirt and rocks and mud and go home, and Mom and Dad would have to clean him up."

'Cliff' may be averted, but critical problems remain


residentBarack Obama and the 112th Congress have failed us again. Yes, they averted many of the scariest immediate aspects of the "fiscal cliff." And we agree with U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, that a "yes" vote was the right move in the last few hours of the latest battle. The risks of stalemate, including the chance of fallinginto another recession, were too extreme. But it's another stop-gap measure. Our leaders addressed none of the underlying problems, and we now face battles in the next few months on the debt ceiling and the expiring government spending bill. In the short term, the resulting uncertainty hurts our efforts to climb out of our current slowgrowth economy. Businesses don't expand, jobs don't get created, and people don't spend more when they don't have confidence in the consistency and stability of economic decision-making. And the immediate expiration of the payroll tax cut means workers face

a 2 percent loss of income, which could further slow the economy and increase unemployment. Ironically, the vast majority of the Bush tax cuts were made permanent with this legislation, something Republicans might have cheered a few years ago. But now we face the reality of deficits that have grown dramatically in the last few years, with no end in sight. The most important failure, h owever, starts with a l ack of honesty. By framing the conflict around the supposed failure of the rich to pay enough, the president avoids the critical conversation. We need to face up to the fact that the nation has made promises about low taxes and high benefits that it can't keep. There simply aren't enough rich people to pay the bill, no matter how high their tax rate. Voters like the idea of high benefits with someone else paying the bill, but the numbers don't add up. Until the president is willing to deal honestly with this reality, the nation remains at risk.

Take a look at ourselves

Oppose evil with God and good

This is written in response to Ann Byers and her letter "Guns kill children" in the Dec. 20 Bulletin. Guns actually don't do anything themselves and they certainly don't have the ability to pull their own trigger. We, as a society, always like to blame someone or something whenever anything goes wrong. That's the easy way out and it's simple. But maybe we should take a look at ourselvesand see ifm aybe we are to blame. We have raised a generation of children who don't have the respectthey should for non-violence and the reverence for life. How have we done this — you, me, our neighbors? We have let them watch violent movies and TV, left them home unsupervised while we both worked to pay for all of the toys we have, turned a blind eye to their drug use, and let them play violent video games instead of playing and exercising outdoors.

How do we address the Newtown school shooting'? Is it a mental health issue? A gun rights issue? A violent-movie-and-games issue'? A schoolsecurityissue? I believe it is a moral issue on a national scale. Newtown, along with all the other senseless shootings, exposes a rising tide of evil in our culture. We used to oppose evil with God and with good. Evil is not something that can be medicated or legislated away. Evil is something from which we must turn away by turning to God, the source of all

good. But instead of turning to God, our nation is walling him off, using the fictitious constitutional wall of separation of church and state to remove God further and further from the public square. God is nowhere to be seen in

Have we honestly provided them with a good example? When was the last time you heard of some old person shooting up a school or any other situation or even young

people 50 years ago? These are hard questions and the answers are not as simple as banning guns or assault weapons. It's time to take a closer look at ourselves and not jump to simple but incorrect conclusions. Jim Persing Redmond

Precious preborns slaughtered As we all consider the horror of the massacreof the 27 at the grade school in C o nnecticut, we h ave corporate grief being shared all throughout this nation — indeed, the whole world. I am seriously concerned about a nation, however, that can so easily dismiss the taking of many thousands of little lives every month right here in our United States. How, you ask? Precious preborn little ones are being slaughtered in the name of convenience every single day. It isn't as if these little ones have done anything wrong or are unwanted by plenty of couples who are barren. Self-centeredness and fearare often the cause ofthis enormous loss of life. Let us grieve in a uniform pattern! Any female who can conceivecan deliver a child, even if not for her own parenting. To kill the little one living in the womb is no different than killing the precious little ones and their teachers in Connecticut. Charlotte Kolzow Bend

rampages. In no way did they go out and legally obtain these weapons. According to reports, the Newtown shooter appeared to have tried to purchase a weapon from Dick's Sporting Goods and was turned down. He then apparently murdered a responsible, legal gun owner to obtain his goal of procuring a weapon — his own mother, no less. No gun law in the world is going to stop this type of determination. How could this horrible tragedy have happened and how could it be mitigated? In regards to mental health, we are now r ealizing the long-term lack of resources and degradation of family values and morals. We are facing a generation of adults desensitized to graphic violence and respecting no one. These are people who cannot, will not, or are unable to articulate or differentiate the issues of morals, accountability, reality

and responsibility — or, as I call it, "MARR." It can be argued when we had God and the Bible in our schools, we had a positive moral compass and foundation from which to develop. Whether or not one believes in the Bible is not the issue. Common sense dictates that when you build upon a solid foundation of what's right and w r ong, you get positive results. t I m the first one to admit we need more security in the schools. The modern world we live in is dangerous. But regardless of what plan gets implemented, it's going to cost money. I propose, rather t han h aving armed guards (the first target of a shooter) at schools, we use what might be a win/win situation? Use an effective, kid-friendly, nonlethal force in the form of trained

dogs and volunteer handlers (who could be teachers, staff and volunteers, or someone else). The advantage would be that threat response time would be negligible. In addition, a shootout with the criminal could be avoided while the dog neutralizes the threat — or, at the very least, provides a barrier between the criminal and victims, slowing down the criminal and allowing extra time for escape. Trained dogs would also be able to locate and be alert to the presence of drugs, explosives, weapons and other potential threats to safety. With students exposed to these protective service animals rather than more guns, a result could be the development of a school servicea nimal t r a i ning p r o g ram f r o m which children would benefit while giving back to the community. n

In California, recklessdoctors prescribe narcoticsunchecked By Lisa Girion and Scott Glover Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Kamala Harris has a powerful tool for identifying reckless doctors, but she doesn't use it. As California's attorney general, Harris controls a database that t r acks p r escriptions f o r pa i n k i llers and other commonly abused drugs fromdoctors'offices to pharmacy counters and into patients' hands. T he system, known a s C URES, wa s c r eated s o physicians and pharmacists could check to see whether patients were obtaining drugs from multiple providers. Law enforcement officials and medical regulators could mine the data for a different purpose: To draw a bead on rogue doctors. But they don't, and that has allowed corrupt or negligent physiciansto prescribe narcoticsrecklessly foryears before authorities learned about their conduct through other means, a Los Angeles Times investigation found. P rescription d ru g o v e rdoses have increased sharply over the last decade, fueling a doubling of drug fatalities in the U.S. To help stem the loss of life, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that states use prescription data to spot signs of irresponsible prescribing, and at least six states do. California is not one of them. By monitoring the flow of prescriptions, authorities can get an early jump on illegal or dangerous conduct by a doctor. Among the telltale signs: writing an inordinate number of prescriptions for addictive medications or for combinations of drugs popular among addicts. Harris' office keeps CURES off-limits to the public and the news media. But information from a commercial database containing the same kind of data illustrates how valuable CURES could be as an investigative tool. Private f i rm s p u r chase prescription data from pharm acies and sell it t o d r u g companies for use in marketing their products. The Times obtained a list from such a database ranking the most prolific prescribers of narcotic painkillers in the Los Angeles area for June 2008. Of the top 10 doctors on the list, six were eventually convicted of drug dealing or similar crimes or were sanctioned by medical regulators. One of them was a cocaine addict. Some had been prescribing narcotics in high volume foryears before authorities caught up with them. At least 20 of their patients died ofoverdoses or related causes after taking drugs they prescribed,according to coroners' records. Had officials been tracking the doctors' prescriptions in CURES, some of those deaths might have been prevented. Harris, a career prosecutor who was elected attorney general in 2010, declined repeated requests to be interviewed for this article.

Liz 0 Baylen / LosAngeles Times

A federal agent removes a computer as evidence from a physician's office. Data the state already collects could help authorities move sooner to stop reckless prescribers. "We don't have the horses or the ability to do that kind of work," he said. T he Medical B o ard o f California, w hich l i censes and oversees physicians, has appealed to the public to report instances of excessive prescribing, a step it took in response torecent Times articles on overdose deaths. But the board does not use CURES to identify doctors whose prescribing poses a danger to patients. "We don't have the resources," said executive director Linda K. Whitney.

It has been called a volcanic wonderland and a climber's paradise. The House bill was sponsored by Reps. Sam Farr, D-Calif., and Jeff Denham, R-Calif.

The massive Sumpter dredge was one of three that took some nine tons of gold from the Sumpter ValIey before finally shutting down in 1954. The dredge is the centerpiece of a state park on the south end of Sumpter, a one-time boomtown that faded in the early 20th century. The area's past is part of a Syfy network show focusing on mining and ghost hunting.

The NFL's dandy dozen is set — and truth be told, a little scared. Nobody's perfect, and all the teams that made the playoffs face potential pitfalls that could derail their dreams of partying down Bourbon Street in February. The Denver Broncos are riding a league-best 11-game winning streak as Peyton Manning seeks to cap his incredible comeback with another championship. Manning insists the Broncos remain a work in progress, lacking enough time together to suit the perfectionist in him, "but I think we've done the best job of being the best we can possibly be in a short period of time." Like the rest of the field, the Broncos could end up being the NFL's best without being at their best. The Broncos, Patriots, Falcons and 49ers all get a little more time to fix their flaws after earning first-round byes, although they'll also have to make sure all that R&R they get this weekend doesn't turn into rust and ruin when they suit up again. Here's a look at the Achilles' heel of each of the 12 teams still hoping to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans on Feb. 3:

an injured Willis McGahee in November. And rookie Ronnie Hillman didn't see the field after his fumble Sunday led to the scary sight

of Manning chasing down a cornerback to save a TD. "Me, I'm telling him to get out of the way," Champ Bailey said. "But the competitive nature of him is telling him to make the tackle. He stuck his neck out there." His four-time surgically repaired neck, by the way. New England:The Pats are as close to perfect as there is, but they, too, have blemishes, including RB Stevan Ridley's fumbles. Despite rushing for

a career-high 1,263 yards and 12 TDs in his second season, Ridley fumbled four times, putting him in line for one of coach Bill Belichick's notorious rants.

"We're trying to play

perfect football. That's impossible, of course," Ridley said. "But when you make a mistake, you best believe that this is one place it's not

going to slide." Houston:The Texans lost three of their past four, and the main culprit is third down travails. They have converted just 15 of 49 thirddown attempts in their past fourgames and theirdefense has been unable to make stops. Andrew Luck threw a 70-yard touchdown pass on third-and-23 in the fourth quarter Sunday to put the game out of reach. "Hopefully, being at home, the noise, all those things, we can do a better job," said coach Gary Kubiak. See NFL/C4

• Former Redmond Highand University of Oregon star Maarty Leunen isright at home playing pro basketball in Italy By Mark Morical The Bulletin

Maarty Leunen has spent most of the past four years settling into a quiet family life in the Italian countryside. Now in his fifth year as a professional basketball player overseas, the 27-year-old from Redmond still considers the NBA a possibility — but he would be perfectly content to stay in Europe, wherehe plays for Mapooro Cantu of the Italian Serie A league, regarded as one of the better leagues in the world outside of the NBA. The 6-foot-9-inch Leunen, a former star at

Redmond High and the University of Oregon, said herealized after a couple of seasons overseas that he would not mind playing in Europe for a long time. "My ultimate goal is to play in the NBA as I dreamed as a kid, but I'm at the point in my career where I have built a strong reputation in Europe to play at a very high level," Leunen said via email from Italy this week. "So if I ever do have the option to play in the NBA, I would have to weigh my options and what would be best for

me and my family." SeeLeunen/C3

Browns have sights set on Oregon's Kelly

The CLEVELAND Browns may strike quickly to get Chip Kelly, Oregon's coach who does everything in


a hurry. Kelly, whose up-tempo, fastpaced offense has captured the imagination o f s e veral NFL teams and maintained the Ducks' status as a national power, appears to be near the top of Cleveland's list of candidates to replace Pat Shurmur, fired earlier this week after going 9-23 in two seasons. A ccording to s everal r e ports, Browns CEO Joe Banner is already in Arizona and intends to interview Kelly, who is preparing the fifth-ranked Ducks fo r t o n ight's Fiesta Bowl against Kansas State. An interview could take place as early as Friday. Kelly has been deflecting questions about hi s f u t u re all week. He did so again on W ednesday when h e w a s asked if he expects to be contacted by NFL teams in the days ahead. "I don't expect anything," said Kelly, 45-7 in four years at Oregon. "I said this a million times. I'm never surprised by anything. I do not know what the future holds. I do know we have a football game tomorrow night and I'm going to be there." After that, his next stop isn't certain. The Philadelphia Eagles are also believed to be interested in Kelly, who came close to taking Tampa Bay's job last year. Browns safety T.J. Ward knows the 49-year-old Kelly as well as anyone. Ward, who walked on with the Ducks, believes his former coach is ready to make the leap to the pros. "I think the players in the NFL would respect him and they will respect how he approaches you," Ward said. "He lets you do your job. In college, he treated us like pros. I think that's what players respect and appreciate about him."

The (Eugene) Register-Guard

S COTTSDALE, A r i z. — Pac-12 teams have lost more bowl games than they have won. The Big 12 is 2-0 in matchups this postseason with the Pac-12. And does any of it matter as Oregon prepares to meet Kansas State tonight in the Fiesta Bowl? "Too much is made of that," said Steve Greatwood, Oregon's offensive line coach and a veteran of 15 bowl appearances by the Ducks. "I used to get worked up about that, but it's all about matchups." Does a team with superior receivers find itself playing an opponent whose secondary has been decimated by injuries? Is a team susceptible to giving up large amounts of rushing yardage trying to defend a pass-oriented offense'? And there is always this: How important is the bowl to the team playing in it? "A lot of it is how bad do your kids want to be there'?" Greatwood said. "I'm feeling really good about our group right now. They're excited to

play and I like how they're handling themselves. "It's excitement, but it's a businessas-usual attitude." This is not only the eighth consecutive season in which Oregon has played in a bowl, but the fourth consecutiveyear the Ducks have been in a Bowl Championship Series game. There have been two Rose Bowls, and in between was the national title game,

played at the same site as tonight's game against Kansas State. "We know how to get ready for a big stage like this, we know what we have to do and what should be done," Oregon senior linebacker Michael Clay said. "You feel a lot more comfortable." The Ducks have watched seven other Pac-12 teams play their bowl games, and there is some disappointment in the overall results of their conference. "I think we have pride, not just with the conference, but most of the guys come from one part of the country and we'd like it to be successful," said injured senior Duck offensive lineman Carson York. "If it's Oregon State or anybody (from the Pac-12), I've been pulling for Pac-12 teams." "We all root for the Pac-12 to do well," Clay added. "It's disheartening

to see them lose games (because) everybody here is a Pac-12 fan. "I was rooting for Oregon State even though they're our rivals." The reality of the bowl pairings over the past three weeks is that with Oregon and Stanford both in BCS games, it meant the other Pac-12 teams all moved up a step in the pecking order of the selection process. That could have made adifference in outcomes. As it was, while UCLA and USC put on disappointing performances, it would not have taken much to alter outcomes in other games involving Pac-12 teams. It can, indeed, be a fine line between winning and losing a bowl game.

"You have so much time to prepare. If one team chooses to utilize that and the other team doesn't ... it may not reflect the kind of team they were during the year." Oregon State lost a close game to Texas, after UCLA had been thumped by Baylor, resulting in the conference's 0-2 record against the Big 12. "The Oregon State game was going back and forth, then Texas was able to make more plays at the end, but I can't really say that means anything," UO cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu said. "I don't know how a team prepared for every game, so you can't say how much that (result) matters. "It always matters how your momentum is ... (a team) could right now not be playing its best football." Neither of the Fiesta Bowl opponents hashad great success in bowl games. Kansas State is 6-9 in the postseason and has not won a bowl since 2002, dropping its past four. Oregon is 10-15 in bowls, a winning percentage of.400 that ranks as the lowest in the Pac-12. Even in the recent run of success, the Ducks have not fared well in the postseason, going 3-6 in bowls over the past decade and 1-2 in Chip Kelly's tenure as head coach. But what does it really mean? It's almost like the warning on buying stocks:past performance doesn't necessarily guarantee future results. As Greatwood reminded: "All we can control is our outcome (in the Fiesta Bowl). That's all I'm worried about."

get their first taste of the playoffs Sunday at Baltimore. They've also been much betterathome than on the road. "We'll play in the parking lot," linebacker Dwight Freeney said. "We just want to go out there and play football and be in this dance." Cincinnati: Andy Dalton. The young QB has made it in Cincinnati. Now, can he make it in his hometown? As a rookie last season, he took the Bengals to the playoffsand faced the Texans back in Houston — he grew up in suburban Katy. He had one of his worst games with three interceptions, including one that J.J. Watt returned 29 yards for a TD. "He's a guy that's grown," off ensive tackle A n drew W h i t worth said of Dalton. "He's matured. I think he's ready for his opportunity."

NFC Atlanta:Ground(ed) game. The Falcons earned the top seed in the NFC despite ranking 29th running the ball. They made up for that lack of success and a 23rd-ranked defense thanks to QB Matt Ryan, who threw for 4,719 yards and 34 TDs even with spotty protection. Their loss to Tampa on Sun-

day, though, snapped an 11-game home winning streak. "We really thought we were going to pull it off," cornerback Asante Samuel said. "But we have bigger fish to fry."

San Francisco:The 49ers' kicking game is suddenly a big question mark for the two-time defending NFC West champions after David Akers' prolonged funk a year after his near-perfect season. A kers wasjust29 for 42 this season and found himself in a competition with Billy Cundiff this week to see who will be kicking in the


Fiesta Continued from C1 "This game could have been for the national championship," Oregon linebacker Boseko Lokombo said. "A couple weeks ago, that's where we were both headed." They are headed to the desert instead, setting up one of the most anticipated games this bowl season. A year ago, the Fiesta Bowl hit it big with Oklahoma State and Stanford, two high-profile programs that did not disappoint, putting on an offensive show won by the Cowboys 41-38 in overtime. This year's game, tonight at University of Phoenix Stadium, has the potential to be even better. Oregon (11-1) is in its fourth straight BCS bowl game under fourth-year head coach Chip Kelly, following a trip to the 2011 BCS championship game and two Rose Bowls, including the program's first win in the Granddaddy of Them All in 95 years last season. The Ducks fly fast, overwhelming opponents with where-did-they-allcome-from speed, their touchdown drives measured not in minutes, but seconds. Oregon has one of the nation's most explosive running b ack t a ndems in Kenjon Barner and De'Anthony Thomas, both threats to score on every touch,and redshirt freshman quarterback Marcus Mariota played well beyond his years while proving to be a dynamic force in his own right. The Ducks were second nationally with 50.83points and 323.25 yards rushing per game and fourth in total offense at 550.08 yards. "Basically, only one team stopped them the entire year and that was Stanford," Kansas State defensive coordinator Tom Hayes said. "It's a challenge. We need to meet the challenge if we have any wishes for a victory." It does not figure to be any easier

"Obviously, you can't help as a Snyder again lifted the Wildcats out of the doldrums, leading them to a coach (but) admire what Coach Sny-

der has done," Oregon's Kelly said. "He had an opportunity when he first got to K-State that he created a legacy that I don't think anybody could ever imagine when he first took over that program, what one man could do to a university. Retired for a couple years, then came back and is building upon that legacy. "It's really a special story in col-

lege football that will (have him) go down, like I said, as one of the top coaches in the history of the game." Snyder's quarterback has a pretty good story, too. Lightly recruited and switched to receiver early in his college career, Klein had a superb first season as Kansas State's starter, passing for 1,918 yards, rushing for 1,141 more and accounting for 40 touchdowns as a junior.

He became a bona fide star in his final season in Manhattan. A fifth-year senior, Klein earned the moniker Optimus Klein for his grittiness and ability to grind out victories any way he could, seem-

ingly topping himself every game. A sturdy 6 feet 5 and 226 pounds, Klein became the first quarterback in the BCS era to run for at least 20 touchdowns and throw for 10 in consecutive seasons, and he broke the FBS record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in tw o seasons with 49. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist, the Big 12 player of the year, and he won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Whatever happens tonight, Klein will leave Kansas State as one of the greatest and most popular players in school history. "He's very good, he runs that of-

fense efficiently, he's a poised guy, appears to be a very smart football player,"Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti said. "He knows what they want him to do in their game plan." Many of those attributes could be used to describe Mariota, too. The first freshman to start at Oregon since Danny O'Neil in 1991, he was consideredone of the few question marks for the Ducks heading into this season. Mariota answered any questions and then some, showing poise beyond his years while leading a veteran, talent-laden team. A bit more wiry than Klein at 6 feet 4 and 211 pounds, Mariota is an athletic dual-threat quarterback who is a better passer but can use his speed to break off long runs. Mariota passed for 2,511 yards a nd 30 touchdowns, ran for 6 9 0 yards and four more scores, and cemented his place as Oregon's quarterback of the future. "He does so many things from the skill standpoint, his quickness, his speed, ability to throw the ball accurately two out of three times," Snyder said. "He's gifted from a physical standpoint. I think as much as anything, the fact that for a very young person on the field playing in some very highly c ompetitive environments, he seems to be a very, very

poised young guy, doesn't seem to get ruffled." Between the tw o star q u arterbacks and all that talent on both sides of the ball, it should be a fun Fiesta Bowl.

Green Bay: The Packers also have problems putting the ball through the uprights, but coach Mike McCarthy has steadfastly stuck with Mason Crosby, who was a less-than-impressive 21 for 33 this season. During one stretch he missed 12 of 24, including all seven triesfrom 50 yards or longer. But he has made his last four, including two from 50-plus. "Theselasttwo weeks I've been putting them through the uprights and that's what I've got to keep do-

ing," Crosby said.

Washington: The Re d skins' bend-but-don't-break defense has been bowing so much it's bound to snap, right? Opponents converted third downs an NFL-high 44.2 percent of the time against the Redskins, who finished 28th in total defense and 30th in pass defense and had to rely on Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris to make up for all these defensive doldrums. "We're good enough, right?" defensive tackle Barry Cofield said. "Good enough to get to the playoffs.Good enough to win seven games in a row." Seattle:The Seahawks were the only team in the league to go 8-0 at home. The problem is they're hitting the road in the playoffs, where they were 3-5. They won't have their ear-piercing crowd nor will they have history on their side Sunday atWashington. The Seahawks haven't won a road playoff game since upsetting Dan Marino in Miami after the '83 season.

passing game is putrid. They were next-to-last in the league in total yards passing and in yards per pass attempt, and until Christian Pondercompleted a 65-yard pass on Sunday, they had just one completion longer than 45 yards all season, a 54-yarder on Nov. 11 against Detroit.

"He's definitely playing more

consistent," Peterson said of Ponder. "He's playing faster football, not thinking as much as much."

Auto sales

1 420 .

Americans rebuilding in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy are buying cars to replace those lost in the storm. That trend gave auto sales a boost in November and is expected to have done so again last month. J.D. Power and LMC Automotive are forecasting that L.S. auto sales grew 14 percent in December from a year earlier. Look for the final figures today when automakers

report December sales figures.

Fed meeting minutes The Federal Reserve is scheduled today to release minutes of a meeting held by its policymakers last month. After the two-day meeting in early December, the central bank announced plans to keep interest rates ultra-low at least until the national unemployment rate drops below 6.5 percent, a threshold the bank beli eves may notbe crossed until the end of 2015. Will the minutes of the Fed's meeting help Wall Street glean any new insights into the central bank's strategy?

The Standard& Poor's 500 index had its bestday Monday since December 2011 on relief that most workers will avoid steep tax hikes this year. Congress reached a compromise over the new year holiday that holds income-tax rates steady for singles that earn less than $400,000 and for married couples making less than $450,000. Without the compromise, rates would have jumped on all taxpayers in 2013, and economists worried that could help lead the economy into a recession. The compromise, though, came only after a protracted partisan battle and economists say more are approaching in the coming months that could again unnerve investors.

The developer of the Riverhouse Convention Center and River's Edge golf course wants to build 15 new homes along the golf course in northwest Bend, the first phase of what could amount to several hundred homes over the next six years. The development would mark the first home-building activity there since before the 2008 housing market crash, and could be the first of several new construction phases, according to Gary Cox, a partner with River's Edge Property Development, LLC. The plan follows a July settlement between River's Edge Investments, LLC and the

city of Bend, stemming from a 2007 lawsuit filed by River's Edge manager Wayne Purcell over development rights and city sewage capacity. City officials were concerned that existing sewage capacity couldn't meet the demand from the full, 349-home plan filed by River's Edge. The new plan calls for construction of 269 homes, with a 2019 development deadline. River's Edge filed a preliminary application for the 15-home development with the city last month, though Cox said he wasn't sure when construction would begin. The new lots would be platted on the west side of Northwest Clubhouse Drive, along its intersection with Mount

Washington Drive, near the Deschutes River Trail. Across the entire residential development, the new homes will be phased in over time, to ensure adequate water and sewer supply for the properties. "We're moving forward as quickly as we can," Cox said, referring to the first phase. "We think the (housing) market conditions are improving." Dozens of homes have already been built around the golf course, though much of that building activity took place in the 1990s, according to Deschutes County property records. Purcell's family has owned the land on the eastern flank of Awbrey Butte for decades. He oversaw the creation of the

Riverhouse Convention Center in the mid-2000s. The new homes would likely be aimed at the middle of the housing market, priced between $350,000 and $450,000, Cox said. The 15-lot phase "will be the first of many," Cox said. "Economic conditions will dictate when we go through with others." The area's development plan could be open to future home construction along other sections of the golf course, including Fairway Heights Drive. The development plan also calls for eventual construction of a new street, between the two sections of Fairway Heights Drive. — Reporter: 541-817-7820;

Manufacturing expands after reaching 3-year low

esi • New technology offers businesses a low-cost option

By Shobhana Chandra By Ronald D. White

Bloomberg News

Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON — Manufacturing in the United States expanded in December at a pace that shows the industry is stabilizing after reaching a three-yearlow a month earlier. The Institute for Supply Management's manufacturing index climbed to 50.7 last month from November's 49.5, which was the weakest since July 2009, the Tempe, Ariz.based group's report showed Wednesday. Fifty is the dividing line between expansion and contraction. The median forecastof economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a rise to 50.5. Sustained growth in the U.S., in part due to a housing rebound, and steadying overseasmarkets are helping underpin factory orders and

What does a business do if the vintage aircraft part a customer needs hasn't been made in decades? For a solution, Airflow Systems of Capistrano Beach, Calif., turned to Rapid Tech at University of California, Irvine. Through the use of Rapid Tech's cutting-edge 3-D manufacturing technology, the aircraft parts manufacturer got what it needed in exchange for the cost of the materials required to do the work. "I believe that small entrepreneurial businesses like ours will be the backbone of manufacturing innovation in the U.S.," said Bill Genevro, president of Airflow Systems. "But we can only do this with the help of entities like Rapid Tech." Rapid Tech is in the UCIrvine Engineering building and has been funded by Saddleback College and grants from the National Science Foundation. The nonprofit's primary function is teaching students advanced manufacturing techniques, but it also provides low-cost help for businesses. "We do hundreds of projects each year, dozens of outreach and training events," said Ben Dolan, director of design and engineering research projects at Rapid Tech. Rapid Tech's specialty is a form of modeling in which a printer uses digital input from a computer to create three-dimensional solid objects, thin layer by thin layer. The printer head extrudes a small amount of plastic or other material, making several passes before the form begins to take

The process enables users to quickly design and refine prototypes without resorting to the more costly and time-consuming process of having a metal part forged and repeating that procedure to correct imperfections. Each of the projects uses one of the more than 20 3-D digital printers and other

equipment at Rapid Tech. Because they have become increasingly refined and sophisticated, these so-called desktop factories are being referred to as the third manufacturing revolution. "After the digital revolution, this type of engineering work was considered lowbrow," said UC-Irvine mechanical engineering professor Marc Madou.

"Now we're helping to create the supply chain of the future." But the process demands considerable computing power, so much so that when Dolan needed new desktops, the only kind that came ready to use, without extensive upgrades, were some of the world's fastest boutiquegame computers, such as those made by Alienware. The best 3-D printers cost $50,000 to $1 million. This is what puts the technology out of reach of many small- to medium-sized businesses and even some of the largerand more established ones. Genevro's Airflow Systems is a small firm that has

been designing, building and selling FAA-certified aircraft equipment, such as engine intercoolers, since 1987. Genevro says he has used Rapid Tech's help to save weeks and sometimes months of production time.

keeping manufacturing from faltering. While lawmakers moved to extend tax cuts for about 99 percent of households, corporate confidence in the expansion will take time to build as Congress prepares to debate spending cuts and the debt ceiling. "We finishedthe year on an uptick, but there isn't a firm rebirth of confidence on the part of businesses," said Tim Quinlan, an economist at Wells Fargo Securities in Charlotte, N.C., who projected 51 for the December factory index. "We could face a little bit of a bumpy period before turning to slow growth in manufacturing." The median forecast was based on projections from 71 economists in the Bloomberg survey. Estimates ranged from 48 to 52. For all of last year, the factory gauge averaged 51.7, down from 55.2 in 2011 and 573 in 2010.

'Responsive'websites fit screens big andsmall By Walter Pacheco Orlando Sentine(

Matt Sanders, pastor of family ministries at Journey Christian Church in Apopka, Fla., said navigating the church's old website on his iPhone and iPad was an ordeal. "The website was built for a desktop-computerscreen,but everyone is on their cellphones or tablets these days," said

28-year-old Sanders. "When you read it on an iPhone, the text was too small. You had to scroll all over the place to see the content because it didn't fit on the small screen. It didn't represent who we were as a

growing church." Church leaders looking to grow their 1,800-member congregation in innovative ways turned to a Web-devel-

opment agency for a solution. The company built the church what's known as a responsive website, which shapes itself to the screens of all personal computersand mobile devices "The new website is more enjoyable," Sanders said. "There's less clutter, and it's easier to see on a phone without having to fight to get to it." As the shift toward mobile

continues to fuel the development of hundreds of smartphones and tablets of varying screen sizes, Web designers are working to craft websites that fit perfectly on any device "I strongly believe it's the future of the Internet," said 35-year-old Web developer Jody Resnick, founder of Ocoee, Fla.-based Trighton Interactive, which created Jour-

ney Christian Church's site. "I think apps have a shelf life of a couple more years because they are so fragmented. It's also easier formost companies to address all devices at once with a responsive website instead of

an app for every platform." Resnick said that more than 25 percent of the Web traffic the church receives comes from tablet users.

Mirroring trends in the state and nation, Central Oregon is experiencing a drop in birth rates. Through November 2012, just 1,410 babies were born during the year at the Bend hospital. Mountain View Hospital in Madras went from 226 in 2007 to 134 through October 2012.

The birth rate, which is the annual number of births per 1,000 women in the prime childbearing ages of 15 to 44, is at its lowest nationally since tracking began in the 1920s, according to a Pew Research Center report released in November. For 2011, it was at 63.2 births per 1,000 childbearing women. The well-known baby boom from 1946 to 1964 includes the nation's highest birth rate since tracking began, which, according to the Pew report, was 122.7 births per 1,000 women of childbearing age in 1957. The report says the rate slipped down from that high but stabilized from the 1970s through 2007. From 2007 to2010, the number of U.S. births shrank by more than300,000,the report says. SeeBirths/D3

Survey: State

employees are getting healthier The Associated Press SALEM — Oregon's state workers are getting healthier, and universityemployees are the healthiest among them, according to a survey conducted by the Public Employees' Benefits Board. The survey found a decline in the number of workers who reported smoking or b e ing overweight over the last three years, the Statesman Journal reported. Oregon has made a strong push over the past year to improve the health of public employeesand tamp down on rising health care costs. A new wellness program known as the Health Engagement Model requiressmokers to pay a higher deductible while offer-

ingfreecoverage forsmoking cessation and weight-loss programs. Gov. John Kitzhaber also banned smoking on all property surrounding state offices, and college campuses have banned it as well. The report doesn't explicitly link the improved health to the wellness efforts. T he proportion o f s t a t e workers who reported smok-

ing dropped from 9 percent in 2009 to 4 percent this year. F ifty-seven percent of a l l state workers were overweight or obese this year, down six points from three years ago. But there was a wide variance between university workers and employees ofother state

agencies. Among

a gency

workers, 64 percent were overweight, while fewer than half of university employees were. Those differences appeared in other areas as well. Seventy-seven percent of university e m ployees s a id their jobs i nvolved "mostly sitting," while 84 percent of state agency workers did. And women were much more likely than men to have chair-bound

jobs. State agency workers were more likely than u niversity workers to have arthritis, to have missed work for health reasons in the past month, and less likely to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. University w o rkers w e re far more likely to report having access to a gym, to stairs at work, to bike racks and to having discounted public transit.

Study: Depression can fade in teens This might be tough

By Jane E. Brody New York Times News Service

Is it any wonder so many children are anxious? As the recent horror in Connecticut d emonstrates, children t o day may be confronted with unthinkable realities, events that their parents and grandp arents could n ever h a v e conceived. But much of what children fear is not rooted in reality: strange noises, dark rooms, monsters under the bed. Parents often are called upon to help ease these anxieties, and the job is not easier just because they spring from the imagination. One of the most common childhood fears involves separation from parents. Separation anxiety is a normal developmental stage that typically starts around 9 months and ends at about age 3. However, for Daniel Smith, author of "Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety," the trauma of parental separation exploded at age 4 and continued through

Root of the problem

Daniel Smith wrote that "a

Births Continued from 01 A St. Charles analysis of birth r a tes, Shepard s aid, shows that Central Oregon in the past five years has experienced a steeper drop than the state as a whole. While Oregon went from a birth rate of 66 per 1,000 to 60, Central Oregon slidfrom 76 per 1,000 to 61. "We actually have had a bigger drop," she said, "but we've had higher unemployment in Central Oregon." Central Oregon c ounties have experienced high unemployment during the recession. Crook County had the highest unemployment rate in the state from October 2008 through this past November, according to the Oregon Employment Department. "If you talk to the economists, it's going to be a very slow recovery," Shepard said. It wasn't that long ago that St. Charles Bend expanded its birthing center, adding 12 rooms for a total of 26. The expansion was completed in 2007. While the birthing suites at area hospitals are quieter these days, the slumping birth rate isn't at present triggering significant changes. St. Charles Health System will keep its birthing centers open in Bend and Redmond, as well as in Madras, which came under the St.Charles umbrella as of Tuesday. The hospital system closed Pioneer Memorial Hospital's birthing center in Prineville a t the end of 2009. At t h e

time, it cited a shortage of family practice physicians in the area and difficulty in recruiting new physicians. Last summer, administrators at St. Charles brought up the possibility of closing the Redmond hospital's birthing center as part of an overall, systemwide review of services provided at the organization's hospitals. D r. M i chel B o ileau, t h e system's chief clinical officer, said the idea was discussed in the context of a l a r g er overview of the future of the St. Charles system. He said system leaders recognize that such discussions are sensitive for area c ommunities and their hospitals. "We had never made a decision to do that," he said of closing the Redmondbirthing center. "It was only part of a

discussion in a much bigger context of St. Charles in a coordinated health care system,

as opposed to simply a collection of regional hospitals." He said it might become a point of discussion in the future, but it's not being talked about presently. "It's not our i n tention to move all deliveries to Bend right now," he said. St. Charles in 2005 comm issioned a r eport o n t h e birthing centers in Bend and Redmond that looked at both closing Redmond's center and expanding its services. The hospital system at the time decided against any closure and subsequently renovated the center. The number ofbabies delivered at St. Charles Redmond

She has created a "master plan" fo r h e lping children gain control over their anxiety: • E mpathize w i t h you r child.

As with adults who suffer from anxiety disorders, the most successful, scientifically validated treatment for overly anxious children is cognitive behavioral therapy (commonly called CBT), sometimes in combination with an antidepressant drug like Zoloft (sertraline).

has increased in the last few years, although that jump is attributable in part to the closure of the Prineville birthing center. The number of babies born at the Redmond center went from 261 in 2007 to 255 in 2009,and to 335 as of the end of November for 2012. In Madras, stopping deliveries isn't even something that is on the table, Boileau said. Mountain View Hospital serves mothers traveling from the far reaches of Jefferson County and the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. The distances to Redmond or Bend would be too far. I n t h e me a n t ime, S t . Charles is investing in services for expectant mothers. It recently added two more physicians to the Redmond obstetrics an d g y n ecology staff. It's also considering expanding its anesthesia services in Redmond, Boileau said. That would aid the birthing center as well as other parts of the hospital. The birthing center in Bend recently added a second operating room. Boileau said that prevents rolling an expectant mother to the hospital's main operating rooms when the birthing center room is occup>ed. At some point, albeit perhaps a way down the line, birth numbers are expected to rise again in the region. The St .

their children's every problem, but a study found that half of the

teenagers who screened positive for depression got better in six weeks without treatment.

Two aspects of the teenagers' conditions seemed to predict whether the depression would ease without treatment: the severity

of the symptomsand whether the symptoms persisted for six weeks, the researchers, led by

Dr. Laura Richardson of Seattle Children's Research Institute, said

in an article published this week in the journal Pediatrics.

The researchers looked at other factors,

including substance abuse, family history and abuse, but"they did not predict which

adolescents would stay depressed," Richardson, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Washington, said

in a statement. The issue is important because theU.S.Preventive Services Task Force

recommended in2009 screening adolescents for depression in primary care settings. Thegoal is to avoid unnecessary treatment for those with

transient symptoms. The researchers noted there's a need to figure

out which youngpeople need treatment and which just need "watchful waiting" after their

primary care provider identifies depression. — Los Angeles Times

nutritional f a l sehoods that circulate w idely in cyberspace, locker rooms, supermarkets and health food stores. As a r e sult, m i l lions of people are squandering hard-earned dollars on questionable, even hazardous foods and supplements. F or starters, w hen d i d "chemical" become a d i rty word? That's a qu e stion raised by one of C anada's brightest scientific m i n ds: Joe Schwarcz, director of the Office for Science and Society at McGill University in Montreal. Schwarcz, who has received high h o nors from Canadian and American scientific societies, is the author of several best-selling books that attempt to set the record straight on a host of issues that commonly concern health-conscious people. I've read two of his books, "Science, Sense and N on-

sense" (published in 2009) and "The Right Chemistry" (2012), and recently attended a symposium on the science of food that Schwarcz organized at McGill. What follows are tips from his books and the symposium that can help you make wiser choices about what does, and does not, pass your lips in 2013.



Many sandwich lovers buy organic versions of their favorite processed meats to avoid potentially harmful nitrites. But many of those organic meats contain an ingredient that can produce nitrites. tives, these foods may not be protected from bacterial contamination. And despite their labels, they may contain nitrites. According to Schwarcz, organic processed meats labeled "uncured" may be preserved with highly concentrated, nitrate-rich celery juice treated with a bacterial culture that produces nitrites. If you'rereally concerned about your health, you'd be wise to steer clear of processed meats — organic,nitrite-free or otherwise. High saturated fat and salt content place them low on the nutritional totem pole.

FITNESS Stress Continued from D1

The stress response If stress is short lived — say, the adrenaline rush from a near-miss of a potential car accident — it usually serves a purpose and is not harmful. When s t r es s be c omes chronic and the body's stressresponse system is engaged for durations of time, it becomes unhealthy. C h ronic stress can stem from work, unemployment, finances, relationship problems, taking care of an elder, a loved one's death, moving or any number of other things. I n r e sponse t o str e s s — whether there's a real or perceived threat — the body secretes the hormones adrenaline and cortisol to prepare a body for the "fight or flight" response.This is often narrated in thepredator-prey scenario: Picture a zebra on the Serengeti when a hungry, predatory lion is stalking. In zebras as well as humans, stressincreases the heart rate and blood pressure, so more oxygenated blood can reach the major muscles required to fight or flee. Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, can increase blood sugar, or glucose, which can be used for energy. Cortisol also dampens some biological functions that could interfere with a body's urgent "fight or flight" needs. While escaping the proverbial lion, for example, a body doesn't need to be nourishing its immune, digestiveor reproductive systems, so those systems are shut down. Zebras return to a normal physiological state once the threat of the lion is gone. "What makes humans different than zebras in Africa is that humans have imaginations," said Pam Cobbs, a chiropractorand owner of the Freedom Wellness Center in Bend. "We have the ability to keep ourselves in that stressed state when i t ' s c o mpletely unnecessary." Humans are not as frequently faced with physical threats as we are with psychological threats, said Gene Kranz, a psychologist at St. Charles Behavioral Health, "but the brain doesn't distinguish between

psychological and physical threats, so the cascade ofreaction happens regardless." Human bodies can cope with this stressed state if it takes place about 10 percent of the time, Cobbs said, but most of us exist in a state of stresscloser to 90 percent of the time.

A source of disease "Anxiety and depression are usually the first signs of chronic stress," Cobbs said. "That shows up before disease." Chronic suppression of the immune system can lead to autoimmune disorders or allergies, Kranz and others said. And c h ronically i n c reased blood pressure, or hypertension, can lead to heart disease. A recent analysis of six studies involving nearly 120,000 people found that those who perceivedthemselves as having a high level of stress had a 27 percent higher risk of deaths or of "incidents" (described as a diagnosis or hospitalization) fro m c o ronary heart disease,compared with participants who said they had a low level of stress. The study, led by Columbia University Medical Center researchers, was recently published in the American Journal of Cardiology. The researchers also found that the stressed older people in the study were more likely to have heart problems than the younger ones. The authors suggested that might be from the physiological effects of stress compounding over time. A different study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, points t o st r e ss-generated inflammation as a culprit in causing disease. The research team, ledby Sheldon Cohen, a psychology professor at Carnegie Mellon University, found chronic psychological stress was associated with the body losing its ability to regulate i nflammation. C h ronic i n flammation is believed to promote theprogression of some diseases. " Inflammation i s pa r t l y regulatedby the hormone cor-

The Kanawha County prosecutor'soffice ha s a more serious concern. It is investigating whether producers gave alcohol to underage cast members, a misdemeanor punishable by up to 10 days in jail. An MTV spokesman, Jake Urbanski, said the network had a strict policy against providing alcohol to cast members of its shows. Stevens, the producer, said that no alcohol was offered during the making of "Buckwild." One cast member, Ashley Witt, 20, said she and the others had been told not to speak with the news media. "I'm not allowed to make comments on

Meadows said people she did not know had attacked her on Facebook as a poor parent. Her daughter, she said, "is a wonderful young person," and "Buckwild" accurately depicts how she and her friends blow off steam. "The kids inthis area, they're from the country, they go mudding, they build bonfires, they hunt, they swim in the river," she said.

He told me plainly that he could not support my decision because he could not "understand" it. He has never met our children, and does not acknowledge them as his grandchildren. This year on Father's Day, I sent him a card and he replied by email that he was glad to hear from me and he hoped for a reconciliation, but was not sure how to go about it. I responded by email that I was cautiously optimistic that we could reignite a respectful relationship. I haven't heardbackfrom him and I suspect it's because he saw that I had changed my last name from his to my husband's, a decision I made after our marriage.

In the quarterfinals at the 2012 World Bridge Games, the U.S. Open team (Nickell-Katz, Hamman-Zia, Meckstroth-Rodwell) f el l b e hind S weden early b u t r e c overed i n today's deal. At one table, South for Sweden opened three diamonds, passed out. At the other, where Bob Hamman also opened three diamonds, Zia responded three spades. The Daily Bulletin called that a try to improve t he contract; i t w a s r e a ll y a n undertaking to reach game. When South rebid four diamonds, North raised.

he rebids two diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: Partner has a six-card or seven-card diamond suit. His o pening h i g h-card v a l ues a r e minimum, but if he holds K 4, A 3, AQ 1 0 8 6 5 4 , 6 5 , y o u m aymake 7 NT. To b l ast d irectly i nt o s i x diamonds might work. If you prefer to investigate, bid tw o h earts or perhaps three clubs — a forcing bid in a new suit. East dealer Neither side vulnerable

NORTH 4A J 1062 Q 975 4 OK 4AKQ

SPADE RUFFS Hamman ruffed the second heart and took the king of trumps, then cashedthe ace of spades and ruffed a spade. (Maybe starting the spades at Trick Three would be better.) He next took the ace of trumps. No queen appeared,but Hamman led a club to dummy, ruffed a spade, led a club to dummy and ruffeda spade. Had he needed a club discard, dummy's good spade might have provided it. Plus 400, six IMPs to the U.S. But they eventually lost by four IMPs: l ike losing by an extra point i n football.
