REDMOND — Redmond officials have begun to discuss how best to manage the city’s 460acre park system, a job that’s now shared by two governing bodies. Katie Hammer, director of the Redmond Area Park and Recreation District, has fielded questions about her agency’s relationship with Redmond’s Parks Division for more than a decade. “The city develops and maintains parks inside city limits. The district develops and maintains parks outside city limits, and the district is 100 percent in charge of programming and scheduling,” Hammer said. “Not everyone knows who is who, so we field phone calls for city parks, and they answer calls for us

As wolves continue to reestablish themselves in Oregon, a debate simmers over whether they are similar to the animals wiped out following state-sponsored hunts that ended in the 1940s. Many ranchers and critics of wolf revival say they’re bigger and nastier than the ones that once roamed the state. Supporters of wolves and those behind their reintroduction say those claims are overblown and are used to vilify the predator. As a rancher near Dayville, about 120 miles east of Bend, Harry Stangel, 66, doesn’t want to see wolf packs return to Central Oregon. He says the wolves are an exotic species. “It’s a Canadian wolf,” he said. “It’s not the wolf that (was) indigenous to Oregon and Idaho.” Oregon paid a bounty on wolves to spur the eradication of the native animal, which was troublesome for livestock growers. That practice ended in the 1940s. Federal wildlife managers reintroduced wolves into Idaho and Yellowstone National Park in 1995 and 1996, using wolves from the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, said Ed Bangs, who oversaw the reintroduction effort for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service until retiring last summer. While the progenitors of the wolves that have spread into Oregon over the last four years are “Canadian” wolves, he said, they don’t have the diabolical characteristics claimed by their critics. “We’ve been hearing this for 20 years,” he said. “… It’s about people, it’s not really about wolves.” See Wolves / A4

BEIJING — China announced a double-digit increase in military spending Sunday, a rise that comes amid an intensifying strategic rivalry between the United States and China in Asia and concerns in Washington about the secrecy surrounding the Chinese defense budget. The increase, reported at 11.2 percent, is in step with the increased pace of military spending by China over the past decade, but the official statement did not give details of what weapons systems China is developing or offer a description of military strategy beyond protection of the country’s sovereignty.

New wolves: Bigger? Badder? • The animal’s critics and backers are at odds over these questions

By Erik Hidle

Seventh St.

NEW YORK — It took eight years, 450 product sketches, 6,000 consumer tests and hundreds of millions of dollars for Procter & Gamble to create something that it hopes will be destroyed in the wash. Tide Pods are palm-size, liquid detergent-filled tablets that are designed to be tossed in the washer to take the measuring cups — and messiness — out of laundry. P&G says the product, which hit store shelves last month, is its biggest innovation in laundry in about a quarter of a century. Tide Pods aren’t the sexiest of inventions, but they illustrate how mature companies that are looking for growth often have to tweak things as mundane as soap and detergent. The story behind Tide Pods provides a window into the time, money and brainpower that goes into doing that. P&G, the maker of everything from Pampers diapers to Pantene shampoo, has built its 175-year history on creating things people need and then improving them. (Think: Ivory soap in 1879; the Swiffer Sweeper in 1999.) Each year, the company spends $2 billion on research and development and rolls out about 27 products worldwide — more than two a month. That focus on innovation has paid off. See Innovation / A4

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin unnerved many Russians and foreigners alike when he announced in September that he wanted to switch places with his handpicked successor, President Dmitry Medvedev. Although Putin won back the presidency in the election on Sunday, his popularity is sagging, and Russians have taken to the streets in the largest anti-government demonstrations since the early 1990s. For more than a decade, Putin has portrayed himself as a plain-spoken tough guy who saved Russia from chaos — an image threatened by the current unrest. Let’s separate the man from the myths. 1. Putin’s election triumph will set him up to be president for life. It’s true that during his presidency and his tenure as prime minister, Putin has ruled Russia like a latter-day czar. He has ended direct elections for regional governors, subdued unruly oligarchs, marginalized political opposition, and neutered the Duma, the judiciary and the news media. But Putin’s neo-czarist system has been sputtering for some time. Slower economic growth, crime, corruption and a bloated bureaucracy have led many Russians to say “Dostali!” (“We are fed up!”) So after Putin announced his plans to return to the Kremlin, and activists with cellphone cameras documented ballotstuffing during Duma elections in December, something snapped. Subsequent street protests shattered Putin’s aura of invincibility and his image as a good czar. The ruling United Russia party, which took a drubbing at the polls, may be rebranded or dismantled. Medvedev, seeking to mollify the protesters, is reinstating elections for regional governorships; the incumbents will have every incentive to distance themselves from Moscow. This treacherous political environment will force Putin to govern with real give and take, something he’s hardly accustomed to. Some in Moscow’s chattering class even suggest that he could be forced from office in the next year or two and that he needs to start grooming a successor who can help him exit with dignity — and with immunity from prosecution. That may be wishful thinking, but Putin is now fighting for his political life. 2. Putin can use Russia’s vast energy resources as a political weapon. Russia’s oil and gas reserves have made the country fabulously wealthy and a crucial supplier for Europe and other energy markets. When a commercial dispute with Ukraine left hundreds of thousands shivering across Central and Eastern Europe in January 2006 after the Russian energy company Gazprom turned off the tap, many observers warned that energy had become Putin’s latest weapon. But the Russian economy is the real hostage. In 2011, revenue from oil and gas accounted for about half the federal budget, and raw materials made up more than 85 percent of ex-

Putin claims decisive victory MOSCOW — In an outcome long predicted, Russian voters overwhelmingly granted Vladimir Putin a six-year term as president on Sunday, setting the stage for a far more suspenseful post-election confrontation between Putin and opposition groups. “We have won,” Putin declared to a huge throng of supporters right outside the Kremlin walls, a tear running down his cheek. “We have gained a clean victory!” He added, “We won! Glory to Russia.” Putin has been Russia’s pre-eminent leader for 12 years, having served two terms as president from 2000 to 2008 before his current term as prime minister. But the prospect of more protests threatens to undercut his promise of stability. — New York Times News Service

ports. Thanks to a huge trade surplus, enormous currency reserves and an overvalued ruble, Russia’s domestic industries have become uncompetitive against imports — a textbook case of what economists call “Dutch disease.” Adding to these challenges are changes in the European natural gas market. With European gas demand depressed and stiff competition from cheaper liquefied natural gas from the Middle East and North Africa, Russia’s share of the E.U. gas market fell from 48 percent in 2001 to 34 percent in 2009. As government spending balloons because of a massive military buildup and Putin’s campaign promises of more robust social programs, Russia’s oil weapon will be increasingly pointed at itself. 3. Putin wants to re-create the Soviet Union. Putin’s 2005 statement that the collapse of the U.S.S.R. was “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century” — along with Russia’s war with Georgia in 2008 — provoked fears about his designs on Russia’s neighbors. So have his hazy plans for a Eurasian Union consisting of former Soviet republics and the recent launch of a customs union with Kazakhstan and Belarus. Putin’s more ambitious plans for outright political union appeal mostly to older Russians nostalgic for the Soviet past. He knows that the leaders of neighboring countries aren’t going to hand over their sovereignty anytime soon. He also realizes that the relatively affluent Russian public doesn’t like forking over subsidies to support poorer neighbors or dealing with a flood of migrant workers. As Putin himself put it: “Whoever does not miss the Soviet Union has no heart. Whoever wants it back has no brain.” 4. A decisive Putin victory is a crushing blow for pro-democracy forces. It scarcely matters. Reliable polling data from the Levada Center show that 35 percent of voters are inclined to reject the legitimacy of Putin’s victory. With anti-government demon-

strations already planned for this week and Putin warning that opposition leaders are plotting to kill one of their own to discredit him, the stage is set for new confrontations. 5. Putin’s anti-Americanism will doom U.S. efforts to improve ties with Russia. Building rapport with Putin, who has never been shy about his anti-Americanism, is not going to be easy. He’s almost 10 years older than President Barack Obama and professes to use neither a cellphone nor the Internet. Dealings between the two men are unlikely to match the friendly tone of Obama’s meetings with Medvedev. Throw in recent angry exchanges over Syria, Iran and alleged American interference in Russian politics, and you have the makings of a contentious relationship. Yet Putin has shown he’s able to act pragmatically when it serves Russia’s interest. Witness his strong support for Washington after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Russian votes in the United Nations Security Council in 2009 and 2010 to tighten sanctions on Iran, the 2010 New START nuclear arms reduction treaty and the creation of a supply corridor across Russian territory for U.S. forces in Afghanistan. There are plenty of important issues on the agenda — nuclear nonproliferation, terrorism, the dangerous situation in Pakistan and the wobbly global economy — on which U.S. and Russian interests more or less converge. An experienced leader such as Putin, who prides himself on being cold-hearted and calculating, surely figured that out long ago. – Andrew S. Weiss is the director of the RAND Center for Russia and Eurasia and served on the National Security Council staff during the Clinton administration.

T S GOP elders start to lean toward Romney Obama urges Iran sanctions over rhetoric

New York Times News Service COLUMBUS, Ohio — A reluctant Republican Party is showing signs of rallying around Mitt Romney in the presidential race, with leading members of Congress and influential conservatives signaling that a coastto-coast burst of voting on

Super Tuesday should mark a moment to start concentrating on defeating President Barack Obama. Two leading fiscal conservatives declared their loyalties for the first time on Sunday, with one, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, the majority leader, saying, “Mitt Romney

is the man for this year.” The other, Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, described Romney as “best equipped to solve the urgent problems before us.” John Ashcroft, the former Missouri governor and senator who served as attorney general under President

George W. Bush, is poised to join Romney’s team today. The endorsements come as the Romney campaign is pressing elected officials and activists in the 10 states that are voting Tuesday and those that do so in the following weeks to help nudge the contest toward a conclusion.

Saudi Arabia chastises Syrian regime The Associated Press BEIRUT — Saudi Arabia has said that Syrians have a right to take up arms to defend themselves against the regime and accuses the Damascus government of “imposing itself by force,” as concerns mount over a humanitarian crisis there. In a rare televised news conference on Sunday, Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal said the kingdom welcomed international efforts to broker a ceasefire in Syria but added that they have “failed to stop the massacres.” “Is there something greater than the right to defend oneself and to defend human rights?” he asked, adding that the Syrian people want to defend themselves. “The regime is not wanted by the people,” he said. “The regime is insisting on imposing itself by force on the Syrian people.” Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been discussing military aid to the Syrian opposition, but the U.S. and others have not advocated arming the rebels, in part out of fear it would create an even more bloody and prolonged conflict.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama urged Israel and its most ardent American supporters Sunday to refrain from bellicose rhetoric toward Iran and to allow time for stiff economic sanctions to work against the Islamic Republic’s nuclear ambitions. As threats of an Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear program increase, Obama argued that a military operation now would only strengthen Iran’s fragile diplomatic position and fail to end its uranium enrichment program permanently. Acknowledging that Iran’s clerical leadership may not respond to economic pressure, Obama assured the large audience of concerned Israeli supporters that he is willing to use “all elements of

American power” to prevent the Islamic Republic from developing a nuclear weapon. But, he said, diplomacy must first be allowed to run its course. “For the sake of Israel’s security, America’s security, and the peace and security of the world, now is not the time for bluster,” Obama told the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, a powerful lobbying group. “Now is the time to let our increased pressure sink in, and to sustain the broad international coalition that we have built.” Obama’s public argument for patience stands as a likely preview of the message he will deliver privately today when he meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House.

Fire boats respond to the blazing remnants of BP’s Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig in April 2010.

Deepwater oil drilling U.S.-Afghan talks falter returns to Gulf and spreads on the issue of detainees New York Times News Service Nearly two years after an explosion on an oil platform killed 11 workers and sent millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, deepwater drilling has regained momentum in the Gulf and around the world. After a yearlong drilling moratorium, BP and other oil companies are intensi-

fying their exploration and production in the Gulf, which will soon surpass the levels sustained before the accident. Drilling is about to be expanded into Mexican and Cuban waters, beyond American controls, even though any accident would almost inevitably affect the United States. Oil companies are also moving into areas off the

coast of East Africa and the eastern Mediterranean. We need the oil,” said Amy Myers Jaffe, associate director of the Rice University energy program. “The industry will have to improve and regulators will have to adjust, but the public will have to deal with the risk of drilling in deep waters or get out of their cars.”

New York Times News Service KABUL, Afghanistan — The prospects for a longterm American strategic partnership with Afghanistan appeared to be dimming over the weekend, as negotiations foundered despite a new American willingness to move up the transfer of detention centers to the Afghans to as soon as six

months from now, Afghan and American officials said. The proposed timeline would be a substantial concession from an American position that even just weeks ago put off such a transfer into the indefinite future. President Hamid Karzai has stated repeatedly that he wants an immediate transfer of all detainees to Afghan control.

Wolves Continued from A1

Question of size While old-timers say Oregon’s native wolves were just slightly larger than a coyote, with males weighing about 80 pounds, there are reports on the Internet of wolves in Idaho weighing over 170 pounds, said Rod Childers, a rancher near Enterprise and chairman of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association. “They are bigger, and they are going to demand more food,” he said. That food is deer, elk and, possibly, cattle. Bangs, who lives in Helena, Mont., said examinations of skulls from modern wolves and ancient wolves from Oregon show that today’s wolves in the West are bigger, but only by a matter of millimeters when it comes to the head size. That supports the scientific phenomenon of animals that live farther from the equator being larger than those close to it, because larger bodies hold heat better than smaller bodies. He said there are only a few samples of wolves from before they were wiped out in Oregon. “In the old days people were much more interested in killing than weighing them or studying them,” Bangs said. For the reintroduction, the Fish and Wildlife Service released 66 wolves into Idaho and Yellowstone in 1995 and 1996, he said. Those wolves were closely studied, as were the wolves in packs around Idaho, Montana and Oregon that have grown since. “All I know is we’ve weighed a couple of thousand of them and we’ve never had one that weighed over 145 pounds,” Bangs said, “Even with a belly full of meat.” Articles from January 1910 editions of The Bend Bulletin report from the Prineville Review about a large gray wolf killed for a $117.50 bounty after it continually attacked yearlings on the Crooked River near Prineville. The wolf was said to be “the largest ever seen in this part of the country, weighing about 120 pounds.” One of the articles referred to the “large brute” as a timber wolf. While there are still questions about whether wolves should be called timber wolves, tundra wolves or prairie wolves, Bangs said those names don’t divide subspecies. “They are all just gray wolves, but people call them names based on where they live,” Bangs said. “Wolves were here long before there was a Canada or United States or Alaska — so they are just wolves.” There are smaller wolves, with females weighing about 70 pounds and males about 80, found in Mexico, Bangs said. Federal wildlife managers reintroduced these wolves to Arizona and New Mexico in the late 1990s, but none have wandered into the Northwest.

Attitude check Along with being bigger, Stangel, the Dayville rancher, says the wolves moving back into Oregon are more bloodthirsty than the state’s longgone native wolves. For evidence he points to wolf attacks in Eastern Oregon, like the string of attacks that left nearly 30 sheep dead near Baker City in 2009. “They killed them for the hell of it,” he said. While such attacks may seem like instances where wolves are killing more animals than they’ll eat, the “surplus” killing doesn’t show the wolves are meaner, said John Stephenson, Fish and Wildlife Service wolf coordinator for Oregon. Domestic animals, particularly sheep, aren’t able to defend themselves. So attacks by wolves, cougars and domestic dogs can lead to high body counts, he said. While it can seem like wolves may be killing more meat than they’ll eat, people who find the dead domestic animals often run the wolves off before they finish eating or prevent them from returning to the kill. “I don’t think they are (killing) for fun,” Stephenson said.

Political animal Other rumors following wolves as they spread into Oregon are that they cluster in larger packs, carry deadly tapeworms and that there are

more of them than reported. Stephenson said all wolves look to form packs. Bangs said some do carry a tapeworm, but people are much more likely to acquire one from a domestic dog than a wolf. Stephenson said the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s estimate of a couple dozen wolves in the state is based on what it can verify. Stangel said he doesn’t trust state and federal information about wolves. “The government absolutely lies,” he said. As with many issues that become political, those on opposite sides of the wolf revival issue are searching for facts and figures to support their arguments, Bangs said. While many ranchers and wolf critics show photos of massive wolves, conservation and environmental groups favoring wolves bring up studies that show wolves bring a balance to ecosystems and other benefits. Those studies are backed by science, argues Sean Stevens, for Oregon Wild. He said wolf critics are looking for anything to make the animals now in Oregon seem different from those that were here before. “The more they can make it seem they are a different animal, the more it can seem that they don’t belong,” he said. The disagreements about wolves often lead back to their interaction with livestock and how people should respond if wolves, which are still protected by state and federal laws in most of Oregon, do kill cattle and sheep. “There is a reason pioneers got rid of wolves,” Bangs said. “They can be a real pain in the (butt) sometimes.” — Reporter: 541-617-7812, ddarling@bendbulletin.com

Innovation Continued from A1 P&G says 98 percent of American households have at least one of its products in their cupboards, broom closets or bathrooms. And while about 15 to 20 percent of all new products succeed, P&G has claimed a 50 percent success rate. Four of the top 10 new consumer products in 2010 were made by P&G, according to research firm SymphonyIRI. “What they’ve gotten very good at is being able to understand consumer expectations,” says Robert Passikoff, president of Brand Keys Inc., a New York customer research firm. But improving things like window cleaner and toilet paper can take years. It also can cost hundreds of millions of dollars — or up to 100 percent of first-year sales — to develop, make and market them. And even then, new products are a tough sell to consumers. “You have to develop a product that is meaningfully better than the ones out there, which is tough because generally speaking consumer products work pretty well,” says Ali Dibadj, an analyst at Bernstein Research who follows P&G. “You then have to convince the consumer to try the product ... and then get that consumer to break their old habit to make a new one.”

First load: A product is born The laundry detergent industry, with $6.5 billion in annual sales, is always looking for the next big thing. Over the years, fruity scents were introduced, along with suds that work in cold water.

Procter & Gamble Co.

Tide Pods are palm-size, detergent-filled tablets designed to be tossed in the washer.

There also were concentrated and super-concentrated detergents that need less packaging. Surveys and observations of 6,000 consumers found that more than a third dreaded doing laundry. A big reason: Many apartment dwellers hated lugging a seven-pound detergent bottle downstairs to the laundry room or a Laundromat. And many were confused about which detergent to use when they wash in different ways: in regular washers versus high-efficiency; in big loads or small; and in hot or cold water. “We knew people felt laundry was complicated,” says Alex Keith, vice president of P&G’s unit that makes laundry detergents and fabric softeners. So P&G set about creating a product that weighed less, cleaned better and could be used with any washing machine, any size load and in water at any temperature. Pod-like products had been on the market before. P&G introduced tablets filled with powder detergent in 2000, but yanked them from stores shelves two years later. The problem was that powder tablets didn’t al-

ways dissolve completely, leading to messiness. They also worked only in hot water. To make sure Tide Pods would dissolve in cold water too, P&G turned to MonoSol, a company that makes water soluble films. MonoSol developed a polyvinyl alcohol film that not only dissolves in any temperature water, but even in sweaty palms. The film also is strong — it won’t break even when stretched over the top of a can of marbles and shaken — but soft to the touch. The film created another problem, though. Detergents, which mostly consist of water, would cause the pod to melt before it even got into the wash. So P&G made a detergent that is 10 percent water — compared with Liquid Tide, which is 50 percent water. Next, scientists had to figure out how to combine cleansers, brighteners and fabric softeners into one product, while keeping them separate until the pod dissolves in the wash. Doing so would ensure each liquid would work better. After 450 sketches and iterations, P&G developed a proprietary technology that sections the pod into three chambers for all three liquids. The result? A soft ball with three separate bubbles filled with liquids in Tide’s trademark white, blue and orange colors.

Innovate, rinse, repeat Making the product was half the battle. Consumer testing is at the heart of product development for P&G, which has more than 25 facilities across the globe where people can use the

things it makes. The Beckett Ridge Innovation Center, about 30 minutes from P&G’s Cincinnati headquarters, is one. Inside, there’s a 3,000-square-foot grocery store packed with everything from Charmin diapers to Cascade dishwashing liquid. There’s also a 2,000-square-foot mock clapboard house where researchers analyze how people do laundry, wash dishes, take showers and change babies’ diapers. About 50 P&G researchers work at the center, watching and videotaping about 20,000 people each year in their “natural” environment. The testers are picked by third-party companies and paid based on the task they complete. “When we watch consumers in action, we can see things they can’t otherwise explain or articulate,” says Jessica Hall White, director of P&G’s unit that makes fabric care brands like Tide, Gain and Downy. Tide Pods entered a market that was already getting crowded. Henkel’s Purex UltraPacks and Sun Products’ All Mighty Pacs came out in February, too. And Church and Dwight plans to launch its Toss ‘N Done Power Packs— made of crystals — this month. John San Marco, an analyst with Janney Capital Markets, says P&G is at a slight disadvantage because it wasn’t first to market its product. But he believes Tide Pods are likely to hit their first-year sales goal. “It seems when Procter does anything in the laundry category, it makes a huge wave,” he says.

MONDAY, MARCH 5, 2012 • THE BULLETIN

Civil War Continued from A1 The rise of American industry in the first half of the century meant factories could mass-produce clothes, boots and weapons. Telegraph lines enabled commanders to direct armies over multiple theaters. The wires carried bulletins from the front lines to distant newspaper presses. The public followed every battle, and, thus, the grand strategy of war had to factor in the shifts in public opinion — the perception of the war in the North, the South and across the Atlantic, where the traditional Great Powers weighed their options. And yet as modern and fantastic as it was, there was still something medieval about the Civil War. Soldiers fought with bayonets and carried swords to battle. Their weapons included lances and pikes. They relied on horses, mules and wagons. Medicine remained borderline barbaric. Amputations were conducted on the battlefield without anesthesia. President Abraham Lincoln was keenly aware that he lived in a technological society. He was a modern man, knifing into the future. He experienced the acceleration of technological progress more than most Americans because of the primitive nature of his birth in a log cabin on the frontier. The telegraph came along in 1844, and information suddenly no longer moved at the speed of a horse. Since earlier in the century, the ancient sources of power — wind, water, human and animal muscle — had been to a great extent supplanted by the miracle of steam. Lincoln saw these changes and approved. He was a technophile, curious about contraptions, a student of machines. He became a promoter of railroads and an eager user of the telegraph. As president, he was technologist in chief. Inventors banged on his door, wrote him letters, begged him for investment capital for their new weapons. “People knew that Lincoln was a technology geek,” says curator David Miller, who works in the gun room at the American History museum in Washington.

Parks Continued from A1 Should a single entity take charge of all parkland and park services, the move probably wouldn’t happen for a few years due to sagging tax rolls and the complexity of the process. But the most likely move would be for the city to transfer its assets to the district, where a park board could focus on maintaining and developing the land. The city made a similar move two years ago when it transferred responsibility for its fire department to an independent fire district. In that case, however, the city gave up a portion of its tax base to the district, which isn’t likely to happen in a park merger. The city’s Parks Division is part of the public works department. According to city Finance Manager Jason Neff, separating parks services from the city budget would be much more difficult than removing the fire district. “The fire district was clean because they were in their own fund,” Neff said. “With parks, you have operations. … You have to look at taking out the cemetery maybe, the facilities and maintenance, look at what would happen to (service development charges) and project dollars.” Neff estimates that city parks receive around $750,000 worth of funding each year, but that includes several shared services, such as maintenance workers, whose work extends beyond parks. City Councilor Shirlee Evans doesn’t believe the city can sacrifice any of its tax base in a merger. “And that is why I’m not in any way saying we should go out to float a levy right now,” Evans said. “We need to find a way to make everyone comfortable with this and make sure the parks will have the funding.” And for the district, which can levy up to $1.06 million in taxes, adding $750,000 worth of work without a levy lift would be impossible. So they’re starting slowly. Both the city and the district are trying to add budget lines this year for a shared parks planner, who could help with the parks systems while planning for a merger.

Lincoln would test-fire rifles sent to the White House. The telegraph office was Lincoln’s second home, and he would linger late into the night, hectoring generals to pursue the enemy. A president who controlled multiple theaters of war through the clipped diction of the telegraph mastered the art of the compressed message, which may help explain why the Gettysburg Address is not only short but impossible to cut. Even with the rise of a wired society, information remained sketchy. Entire armies still managed to move undetected behind mountain ranges. Reliable information could be elusive in crucial moments. Consider the story, available online at The Atlantic Web site, written in 1862 by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr., an editor for the (yes, very venerable) magazine. In September of that year, he learned, via a telegram delivered to his Boston home, that his son Oliver Jr. had been wounded in the battle of Antietam. Holmes sets out to find his son. From there, the narrative is extraordinarily long and digressive, but it offers a great deal of texture of American life in 1862 across a variety of landscapes. Holmes, for example, opines about what a nuisance it is to have an overly talkative neighbor during a train ride. It’s a comment that easily could have been written in the 21st century rather than the 19th. After much travel, Holmes reaches the Monocacy River, but the rebels have blown up the railroad bridge. He must switch to a horse-drawn wagon. Such is life in a between age: The preindustrial past is never far away. He can’t find his wounded son. He hears all kinds of rumors. Eventually, many thousands of words later, when they finally reunite in Harrisburg, he learns that his son had been holed up in Hagerstown, Md., under the care of some angelic women, just 10 miles from the Antietam battlefield when his father visited. And, thus, one sees the frustrations of life in a partially technological world. Information isn’t reliable. Everyone is still a little lost. You can’t find your wounded son to save your life.

Numbers • City of Redmond Parks Division: 363 acres of parks; approximately annual $750,000 operating budget • Redmond Area Park and Recreation District: 77 acres of parks plus an activity center and the Cascade Swim Center; levy of 37 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation for a total imposed tax of $1,055,568

Evans, an avid supporter of parks, is the liaison to the city’s Parks Commission and works to raise money for both city and district parks through the Redmond Parks Foundation. She says she isn’t opposed to sending the city’s assets off to the district. “I’m not like that where I need to be in charge of it,” Evans said. “I just want to see the best possible park facilities for Redmond.” Evans has made it clear she’s concerned that the city hasn’t done enough to keep up with a growing demand for parks in the area. In the past few months, the council has listened to a debate over horses in the Dry Canyon and a push to create a robust play structure for kids in town. If the city hadn’t eliminated the parks director position six years ago, said Evans, the situation today might be different. “Are those issues symptoms? Oh, yeah,” Evans said. “If we had a director, they would have been down there looking at things long ago. They would have seen that horses were there and come up with a solution for everyone.” The solution, Evans hopes, will come through the addition of a planner and, eventually, the removal of the city from the parks business. “It’s in the City Council goals to look at the ramifications of having a parks district which is better funded and in control of a parks district,” Evans said. “It is a few years out, but we have the framework, the skeleton, of a great park system. Now we need to figure out how to dress it up.” — Reporter: 541-617-7837, ehidle@bendbulletin.com

China Continued from A1 And China analysts say the true figure is probably significantly higher, underreported because much of the military’s decision-making is kept opaque. Washington has pressed China to be more forthcoming about its military intentions, an openness that the Americans say is necessary in order to ease growing unease in a region where the U.S. maintains important alliances and treaty obligations. President Barack Obama declared in November that U.S. military interests in the Asia-Pacific region would be immune from cuts in the Pentagon budget, a commitment that was interpreted in Beijing as an inimical response to China’s growing power. For its part, China, heavily dependent on imported energy, has shown that it wants greater control of the sea lanes off its coast and wants to protect the heavily populated, increasingly wealthy cities on its eastern rim. This strategy along China’s periphery, known in Washington as “anti-access, area denial” has in turn prompted calls at the Pentagon for new weapons systems that can overcome China’s eventual ca-

pabilities in its coastal waters. The spokesman of the National People’s Congress, Li Zhaoxing, said at a news conference on Sunday, a day before its annual conclave, that the military spending increase was in line with Chinese economic development. He added that, as a percentage of gross domestic product compared with other countries, specifically the U.S. and Britain, the increase was relatively low. The total defense budget for 2012 would be increased to $106 billion from $95.6 billion last year, he said. The Obama administration’s proposed defense spending for 2013 calls for a budget of $525.4 billion,

a cut of about $5 billion from 2012. Although Li said the budget covered research and development and new weapons systems as well as personnel costs, Western and Chinese analysts say the announcement represents an undercounting of the real expenditure. The Chinese navy, air force and the 2nd Artillery Corps, which runs the strategic nuclear forces, benefit most from the increased defense spending, experts in both countries say. Among the navy’s acquisitions are a new class of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines and more sophisti-

cated radar systems that allow for improved over-the-horizon targeting capability, according to the Pentagon’s 2011 report to Congress on the Chinese military. Vital elements of the Chinese military buildup, including cyberwarfare, space capabilities and foreign procurements, were not included in the announced budget, the analysts said. Because of the opaqueness of the Chinese military system and secrecy about the workings of the uppermost military body, the Central Military Commission, the real expenditures were not known, they said. Last year, the Pentagon estimated China would spend $160 billion instead of the announced $95.6 billion. But given the dearth of information, the Pentagon’s estimates of Chinese military spending were probably not reliable, according to Dennis Blasko, a former U.S. Army attache at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. “Whatever the true numbers may be, the Chinese military has a much larger pot of cash to spend on fewer troops than it did 15 years ago,” said Blasko, the author of “The Chinese Army Today: Tradition and Transformation for the 21st Century.”

COCC works to overcome hillside accessibility issues By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin

As far as handicap accessibility is concerned, the great disadvantage of Central Oregon Community College’s campus is its location on the side of a hill. With few flat spots on campus, the college has had to deal with accessibility issues. A recent spate of construc-

tion, though, has helped COCC fix some of those issues. The Health Careers Building, set to open this fall, is the keystone of an accessible route from the lower end of campus to near its highest point. Elisa Jones, a COCC student with mild cerebral palsy, relies on a free, on-demand shuttle to make her way around campus. Jones said it

can be hard for her to negotiate the stairs and hilly sidewalks on campus. The shuttle is sometimes the only way for students with disabilities to get around campus. “It’s hard, especially for people in wheelchairs. They can get around, but imagine having to go up the hill,” Jones said. See COCC / B2

• Crook County crowns its pioneer queens – local women with links to the region’s early settlers By Ben Botkin The Bulletin

T

he Crook County women who lined the table on Sunday, with their crowns shining and smiles spread across faces that embraced their age, were part of an annual tradition that recognizes longevity while also serving as a tribute to the county’s historical pioneer roots. Those women are “pioneer queens,” an honor bestowed on them by the Crook County Historical Society. Each year, a different pioneer queen is picked in Crook County, with a crowning at an annual picnic in August. On Sunday, the historical society’s potluck dinner and meeting at the Bowman Museum in Prineville served as a way to honor all pioneer queens, past and present. Not just any woman can bear the title. Pioneer queens must live in Crook County, be in good health and be at least 70 years old, said Jerry Brummer, a member of the committee that recommends candidates to the society’s board.

Their family tree is crucial too. They need to have direct ancestral lineage to pioneers who lived in Crook County before the county’s borders were drawn in 1916. “It’s a good way to keep the history of the area alive,” said Dennis Hardman, whose mother-in-law, Wilma Flegel, was the pioneer queen in 1998. It’s become a long-standing tradi-

tion in Crook County. The first pioneer queen was Celestine “Tine” Miller, crowned in 1937, said Eloise Brummer, Jerry Brummer’s wife. On Sunday, nine of the county’s 11 pioneer queens attended. Seventyeight-year-old Fran Bristow, of Prineville, is the current queen, and was picked in 2011. See Queens / B2

Bend Fire responds to 3 reports in about 3 hours Bulletin staff report The Bend Fire Department had a busy Sunday morning, responding to two fires and a third fire alarm over a threehour period. At 7:43 a.m., the fire department responded to a house fire at 636 Pioneer Loop on Bend’s northeast side. The fire started in an attic space and spread into several rooms. The fire’s cause was a single-walled flue for a pellet

stove that was located too close to the wood used to construct the attic, the department said. Damage to the house and contents was estimated at $70,000. Then, at 8:30 a.m., firefighters responded to a blaze in a garage of a fourplex condominium building at 61325 Sally Lane. The fire started in a garbage can and damaged a nearby shelving unit before the building’s sprinkler system extinguished it. The dam-

age was estimated at $550. Finally, at 10:51 a.m., firefighters responded to a report of smoke haze and the smell of smoke in The Shepherd’s House, a men’s shelter located at 1854 N.E. Division St. Tenants called 911 after noticing smoke in the building. The building was evacuated. Firefighters searched the building and didn’t find any fire damage, but found cigarette butts in a bathroom trash can.

The department determined that the most likely source of the odor was an occupant smoking in the bathroom, which isn’t allowed by the shelter’s policy or state law. Occupants were allowed back into the building. Because of the volume of fire calls, the Sunriver Fire Department was called in to help with coverage of the district, along with off-duty Bend firefighters.

It’s not unusual for students to take college-level courses in high school, but many tend to hesitate before committing to rigorous standardized programs such as Advanced Placement, said Crook County High School Principal Rocky Miner. Why? Because earning college credit through A.P. and International Baccalaureate courses is often harder than doing so by taking classes at a local community college or university, said Miner, who’s rolling out an A.P. plan that will, he hopes, appeal to more students. To get college credit for an A.P. course, students generally must pass an exam prepared and graded by the College Board — a national nonprofit organization responsible for SAT, ACT and A.P. testing. Because most students don’t pass these exams, Miner said, others may steer clear of A.P. classes. Passing the exam isn’t always necessary to receive college credit. Some colleges, said Miner, will award credits to students who pass a high school A.P. class, regardless of how they perform on the follow-up test. For instance, students who pass an A.P. statistics course that began at Crook County High last year received credit with the Oregon Institute of Technology. Students may opt to take the traditional A.P. exam as well. Next year, the school plans to add A.P. courses in history, literature, language and the sciences. Some of these — such as A.P. calculus — will offer the combined-credit option through partnerships with OIT and Eastern Oregon University. “So far, it’s been successful,” Miner said of A.P. statistics. “One of the reasons behind this is to increase academic rigor. We expect a byproduct of this will be improved ACT and SAT scores.” Providing two ways to collect college credit gives students an incentive to take challenging A.P. courses and keeps classes full.

A.P. courses

Well shot! READER PHOTOS

Continued from B1 “With A.P. courses, sometimes enrollment isn’t high enough to justify the class,” Miner said. For those students who do choose to take A.P. exams, the benefits of passing can be significant. Many larger colleges won’t accept credit from local colleges, but will give credit to students who pass an A.P. exam, Miner said. Meanwhile, a high A.P. exam score often allows a student to bypass introductory coursework. To receive credit for an A.P. class, a student who takes the corresponding College Board exam must score at least a three or four on a five-point scale. In 2011, only 15 percent of Oregon students who took an A.P. exam received credit, according to College Board statistics. Miner said part of his goal is to keep such statistics from discouraging students. “We offer a number of college-level classes currently, but these will be college-level classes with an A.P. rigor,” he said. High schools in Redmond, Madras, Bend and La Pine offer A.P. or International Baccalaureate course options. Bend High School Principal H.D. Weddel says their addition has had a significant effect. “Whether our SAT scores have gone up because of A.P./ I.B., I can’t say if that directly correlates. I can say this: senior year has drastically changed for us, that we know. No longer are students trying to glide through. Whether it’s A.P. or I.B., these courses go a long way in preparing (students) for college.”

COCC Continued from B1 COCC has added several accessible features to campus recently, spending more than $1 million total in federal stimulus money and proceeds from a $41.58 million bond voters approved in 2009. That money has paid for new sidewalks, ramps and railings across campus. The money also paid for elevators in six buildings, including Mazama, Pioneer and Grandview. Many of COCC’s oldest buildings were constructed with no consideration for handicap accessibility, according to Gene Zinkgraf, the college’s director of construction. Three years ago, the campus had five elevators in a dozen multi-story buildings. When the Health Careers and the Science Center buildings open this fall, COCC will have 13 elevators in 16 multi-story buildings, according to spokesman Ron Paradis. “Now, everything we do on campus ... connected to

building has (Americans with Disabilities Act) and accessibility issues right at top of the list,” Zinkgraf said. The accessible route will allow students and faculty to make their way from the tennis courts to Grandview, near the top of campus, without using stairs. Above College Way, students will enter the Health Careers building’s ground floor, take an elevator to the second floor and follow ADA-compatible sidewalks. In Pioneer Hall, another elevator will lead to more sidewalks and campus’ upper reaches. The new route will help Jones walk to parts of campus without using the shuttle. With the new accessible route nearly complete, Zinkgraf and others are beginning to plan similar routes that will lead horizontally across COCC. That planning is still in the early stages, Zinkgraf said. “Being in the location we’re in, we are very aware of the need for accessible routes for disabled students, staff and the public,” Zinkgraf said. — Reporter: 541-633-2161, pcliff@bendbulletin.com

Queens Continued from B1 “It’s been fun,” she said. “I’ve had a heyday.” Each year’s queen rides in the county’s annual Crooked River Roundup Parade. The queens are picked somewhat informally, as historical society members already know the families and ladies who have been around a long time. As a result, unlike other pageants for younger women, these pioneer queens aren’t looking for — or necessarily wanting — any attention. Elsie Simmons, 84, of Prineville, said she initially was reluctant when told she had been picked as the 2009 pioneer queen. She accepted the crown after being reminded that the honor was also for the pioneers. —Reporter: 541-977-7185, bbotkin@bendbulletin.com

O N Romney wins Bone disorder does not hold woman back state straw poll CORVALLIS

By Emily Gillespie Corvallis Gazette-Times

CORVALLIS — Amid a group of toddlers playing with toy dinosaurs, Samantha Blythe smiles at 3-year-old Owen Wood as he makes a letter T out of two wooden blocks. “T is for teacher,” she says, and the little boy nods his head. Blythe is an assistant teacher at Corvallis Community Children’s Centers Growing Oaks Center. “It’s a lot of fun. I like being around kids a lot,” she said. “They get to see me as just another one of the teachers rather than someone who’s different.” When Blythe was born, the bones in her hands and feet were fused together, “like little horse hooves,” she said. The 31-year-old Philomath native has Apert syndrome, in which bones of the skull, face, hands and feet do not form properly in utero, resulting in deformities. Blythe has undergone 49 surgeries to help correct her bone malformation. And there will be more to come, she said. “As I get older, my bones are going to deteriorate,” she said. In April, Blythe will have her 50th surgery, a hip replacement. Growing up in Philomath, Blythe said, she always felt accepted. While her disability does not allow her to play any high-impact sports, she joined the swim team and competed all four years in high school. “I wasn’t the fastest swimmer on the team, but when I would race everyone would cheer for me. The cheering would just get louder and louder,” she said. “It felt good.”

The Associated Press SEASIDE — Mitt Romney notched another Northwest victory Sunday, winning the straw poll conducted by Oregon Republicans at their annual Dorchester Conference. Romney received 52 percent of the event’s vote, followed by Rick Santorum with 26 percent. Newt Gingrich received 14 percent, and Ron Paul 6 percent, The Oregonian reported. Romney also won Washington state’s presidential caucus straw poll Saturday. About 400 people participated in Sunday’s vote, with the results capping a threeday conference that saw Oregon’s most prominent Republicans mingling with longtime party supporters. Amanda Cowan / Corvallis Gazette-Times

Samantha Blythe, of Corvallis, works with Owen Wood, 3, at Corvallis Community Children’s Centers Growing Oaks Center. Blythe has Apert syndrome, a bone disorder.

Her most frustrating time, she said, was a five-month stint in Australia while her mother, a professor at Oregon State University’s veterinary school, was on sabbatical. There, she said, she was bullied for her differences. Other kids laughed at the sight of her and played mean tricks on her. “It was the first time I experienced prejudice,” she said. “It was the hardest five months of my life.” Blythe said that how people reacted to her as a child molded her personality. “I used to be really sensitive and shy,” she said.

Today, however, she is an outgoing woman who enjoys her work at the day care center, helping teach children life lessons such as manners and how to share. Having overcome many hurdles, Blythe said she still experiences some social challenges. “A lot of people who don’t know me very well think I’m not mentally aware of my surroundings, and I am,” she said. For example, when she’s out with a friend, people tend to ask her friend questions about Blythe. “I can easily answer,” she

said. “Sometimes I speak up and answer the question.” Blythe said that living with disabilities has made her a much stronger person. “(Growing up) I would try to go near other kids, and they’d back away. I knew they were scared of me.” She has learned, though, that when she opens up to the kids in her classroom, the barriers begin to break down. “When they talk to me, it makes them less afraid,” she said. “I’m teaching them about diversity ... and the best moments are when they come up to me and give me a hug.”

E Governor should veto bill to hide weapons permits

B

The Bulletin AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER

B  M C G B  J C  R  C

Chairwoman Publisher Editor-in-Chief Editor of Editorials

efore it turns public records into private records, the Legislature should demand overwhelming evidence that doing so will solve a significant problem.

When lawmakers voted last week to shield concealed weap-

ons permits from public view, no such evidence was offered. Sen. Ginny Burdick, D-Portland, made a compelling case against the measure, saying the records have long been public without any known instances in which anyone was harmed as a result. Open records, she pointed out, have allowed reporters to cross-check weapons permits with criminal records and find “alarming circumstances.� Nevertheless, vague worries about identity theft and public safety apparently convinced legislators to approve the bill. Meanwhile, another gun bill was wisely defeated. Senate Bill 1594 would have banned weapons on university or school grounds. Lawmakers acknowledged that violence in schools is an issue, but apparently agreed with those who said such a bill would be ineffective in addressing problems usually caused by teens who have obtained guns illegally. (Oregon’s Higher Education Board is considering a separate proposal that

would impose a gun ban on university campuses for faculty, students who live in dorms, some vendors and those who buy tickets to sporting events.) Gov. John Kitzhaber, nicknamed “Dr. No� for his many vetoes during his previous gubernatorial tenure, should live up to that reputation and kill the bill making concealed weapons permits private. The measure does include some limited disclosure options. It would allow the release of records to be ordered by courts or allowed by the permit holder. There are also provisions for limited information to be given to crime victims and to reporters checking on people convicted of a crime. Those are far better than nothing, but they put the onus in the wrong place. It is those who want to restrict access to public documents who should prove, case by case, that it’s necessary.

Ironies abound in latest on spotted owl

T

he Obama administration, charged with enforcing the Endangered Species Act, has come to a conclusion about the northern spotted owl that, once irony is overcome, makes sense. It will beef up logging in Western Oregon and “remove� barred owls from spotted owl habitat. Removing barred owls is necessary because the birds, larger and more aggressive than their spotted cousins, have moved into spotted owl territory, competing successfully for food and nesting sites. The barred owl’s intrusion is at least partly responsible for the continued decline of northern spotted owls, despite their protection under the Endangered Species Act. Today, scientists say, only about 7,000 to 10,000 of the birds remain. So how will the barred owls be removed? Some will be trapped and taken elsewhere. Others will be killed, and therein lies the irony. To save one species of owl, the government will kill another. That’s right up there with the annual spring sight of sea lions (protected under the Marine Mammal Act) eating salmon (protected by the Endangered Species Act) below Bonneville dam on the Columbia River. Work to save one and you

harm the other, and the lawyers have a field day. Still, the administration’s plans do hold the promise of improving the situation. Recognizing that the single-age, single-species forests in Western Oregon aren’t prime territory for the owl, the administration plans to manage timberlands far more aggressively than has been done since the owl was listed nearly 21 years ago. They’ll thin and do the other things necessary to return the forests to health. Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, has been working for years to bring sense to the management of Oregon’s forest lands. He’s seen the devastation wildfires cause, and he knows that badly overcrowded forests are fire disasters waiting to happen. That it would take a Democratic president to see the logic in that is ironic, indeed. The administration still has to begin executing its new plan, and to do so it no doubt will have to win in court several times over. With luck, it will be successful in persuading judges its science is sound. We hope so. It would be nice to see some sense return to the way Oregon’s forest lands are managed.

There’s more to fish passage issue By Dean Grover nce again a Bulletin editorial has distilled a complex natural resource conservation issue down to a simple grade-school mathematical equation in order to justify the paper’s ultra-conservative perspective on social and economic issues. “Let’s see, if you divide the $100 million investment in fish recovery in the upper Deschutes by the 30 adult fish that have returned to the fish trap thus far, you get over $3 million per fish.� The editor then takes it a step further by implying that this is a huge waste of money when you can go down to Safeway and buy farmed Atlantic salmon for $8 a pound. Perhaps if the editor had read one of the many articles The Bulletin’s reporters have written on the subject in the last decade, he or she would have been able to provide readers with a more objective view of the fish reintroduction effort. Failing that, I guess it is up to other interested parties to ensure that all sides of important issues such as this are vetted within The Bulletin’s pages. Some points The Bulletin may have overlooked in its research for the Feb. 17 editorial: 1. The $100 million noted was mostly spent on the Selective Water Withdrawal (SWW) system in Lake Billy Chinook. The SWW was built not only to help pass fish but also to restore water temperatures downstream that were changed when the hydro project went on line. Thus, this system not only benefits up-

O

IN MY VIEW stream fishery resources but downstream resources as well. You might want to figure those benefits into your cost-benefit analysis. 2. Everyone (agencies, conservation groups, PGE and the Warm Springs Tribes) involved in the reintroduction effort knew at the outset that it was a long-term effort. True population recovery will take many generations of fish returning to (and being passed over) the dam. The Pelton Round Butte FERC License is for 50 years, not the half-dozen or so years that have passed to date. It might be a bit premature to apply a “cost per fish� figure at this point in the process. 3. The failure of fish passage at the original facility was due to a lack of understanding of current movements through Lake Billy Chinook relative to the siting and size of fish collection facilities planned for the reservoir. That was almost 50 years ago. A lot of research into facility design and reservoir limnology has taken place in the interim and the “state-of-the-art� facilities at Round Butte Dam are the result of that research. Although there is still the possibility that passage may not succeed, parties involved in the licensing are encouraged by the results to date both in terms of downstream smolt numbers and upstream returns. 4. Loss of habitat was identified as one of the primary drivers in fish population declines in the Northwest and the eventual federal list-

This system not only benefits upstream fishery resources but downstream resources as well. ing of many of these populations. The Deschutes is only one of many hydroelectric projects in the Northwest where new licenses incorporate new fish passage facilities to address the habitat loss issue. Other river systems with operating or planned passage structures include the North Umpqua, the Mackenzie, the Lewis, the Cowlitz, the Sultan and the Pend Orielle, to name a few. The Deschutes River has more good-quality fish habitat upstream of the project than any of these other rivers. Would The Bulletin have preferred that the 250 or so accessible miles upstream of the project be ignored for the next 50 years of the project’s new license? Editorial page space limitations prevent me from addressing The Bulletin’s “cheap farmed salmon� argument or the potential economic benefits that might accrue to Central Oregon communities if fish passage is successful. In closing, I would just hope that other subscribers read The Bulletin’s editorials with a grain of salt as I do and realize that an editorial is basically an opinion and not necessarily fact. — Dean Grover lives in Bend.

It’s time to upgrade the U.S. voter registration system By Rebecca Rimel McClatchy-Tribune News Service

C

atalogues, credit card offers and college alumni newsletters always seem to find us when we move. Many Americans — one in four — assume their voter registrations also keep up. Not so. The “world’s greatest democracy� still largely depends on an outdated and inefficient voter registration system, using handwritten paper forms and manual data entry, that is curiously resistant to modern technology and cannot keep up with our mobile society. While many public transactions with government today can be done effectively through technology — paying taxes or parking tickets, renewing a driver’s license — many states lack a way for voters to conveniently register or update their voter registration online. By failing to adopt modern technology and techniques commonly used in the private sector today, our

voter registration systems are plagued with errors and inefficiencies, wasting taxpayer dollars, undermining voter confidence and fueling partisan fights over the integrity of our elections. A recent Pew report underscores the need for a fundamental upgrade of our system: More than 50 million eligible citizens — one in four — remain unregistered. Some 24 million voter registrations — one in eight — are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate. About 12 million voter records have incorrect addresses, indicating that either the voters have moved or errors in the file make it unlikely the U.S. Postal Service can reach them. Some 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state. And more than 1.8 million Americans currently listed as voters are deceased. Voter registration is the gateway to our democracy. But our current voter registration system was better suited

for the 19th century when Americans mostly stayed put for decades. Today, about one in eight Americans moved during each of the 2008 and 2010 election years. U.S. military personnel and young people are even more transient. Many voters do not realize they need to update their registrations, and only about half know they can do so at the motor vehicles office. What’s more, the voter registration process still relies on paper and mail. Applicants fill out paper forms and flood election offices with millions of paper registration applications, often from third-party voter registration drives. Election officials need to decipher and input the handwritten data manually, usually on tight deadlines in the weeks preceding a major election. While Oregon’s state and local taxpayers spent more than $4 per active voter to process registrations in 2008, Canada, using modern technology, spends 35 cents.

Fortunately, state leaders from across the country, from both parties, are beginning to seize on available technology and proven solutions to make their voter systems more accurate, efficient and cost-effective. Colorado, Delaware, Maryland, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Virginia and Washington are teaming to establish a data center that will compare registration lists with other data sources to broaden the base of information used to update and verify voter rolls. With this stronger voter data, they are adopting proven techniques and security protocols to better identify inaccurate and out-of-date records so that election officials can clean up the lists, while also identifying eligible citizens who are not registered and making it more convenient for them to do so. State officials also have found that enabling voters to submit their information online produces more accurate information at a lower cost.

Consider that Maricopa County, Ariz., saved more than $1 million in five years by providing online voter registration instead of paper and manual data entry. Each online registration costs three cents to process, on average, compared with 83 cents per paper form. The intense public debate today about the role of government demands an electoral system that allows the fullest level of public engagement while protecting the integrity of the electoral process. Across the globe, people are fighting and dying for the right to vote, inspired by our system. Our citizens deserve the opportunity to voice their views through the right to vote. Let’s guarantee that right by helping our state election officials bring the nation’s voter registration system — finally — into the 21st century. — Rebecca Rimel is president of Pew Charitable Trusts.

University of Oregon student Awab Alrawe talks about his experiences growing up in Baghdad, Iraq, on the UO campus in Eugene.

UO hosts Iraqi students on oil companies’ dime By Diane Dietz The Register-Guard (Eugene)

EUGENE — The first of the Iraqi students arrived in Eugene in 2009 in the form of Awab Alrawe, a young refugee from the mayhem and killing in Baghdad. He was the lone Iraqi among 24,000 students on the University of Oregon campus until last fall, when 15 juniors from the University of Basrah arrived for a yearlong study of English to prepare them to work in the reviving Iraqi oil industry. Earlier this month, Saleh Najim, the British-educated chancellor of the University of Basrah, paid a visit to acting UO President Bob Berdahl. In a separate initiative, the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education is sending even more students — at least 4,000 — to study abroad next year in a bid to rebuild the country’s educated and professional classes. A yetto-be determined number of those will travel the 7,000 miles to the UO campus, Najim said. “Some people thought it would be like a big beautiful city and a friendly place,” Alrawe said. “Others thought the opposite. I didn’t really think anything. I said, ‘I’ll go there.’” When Alrawe grew up in Baghdad in the early 1990s — after the first Gulf War — he was told by governmentcontrolled TV and his grade school curriculum that the United States was evil. “That’s what I was taught,” he said. “The United States, Israel and Iran are the triangle of evil.” Alrawe is the son of a geologist and a petroleum engineer. They were afraid to contradict the narrow view that their young son was taught at school because they were at the mercy of Saddam Hussein’s security apparatus. They were afraid of what he would repeat at school. “They were very careful. They just said: ‘Don’t believe all of what you hear,’” he recalled. Alrawe was 13 when the United States unleashed its “shock and awe” bombing campaign on Baghdad. The family was unhurt, having earlier fled to the home of a relative in the suburbs. When the bombs fell, something broke open in his family, Alrawe remembers. “I was bombarded by stories from my father and family. They felt that this was the end of the regime so they shouldn’t be afraid to tell anything.” Their consensus was: “Whatever comes in, it’s not going to be worse than Saddam.” Yet within a year, a hostile militia had taken over their Baghdad neighborhood and threatened Alrawe’s father. So the family fled to Syria, as did 2 million other Iraqis. When Alrawe finished high school, just before he was to go back to Baghdad, he was put in touch with two New Yorkers, Gabe Huck and Theresa Kubasak, founders of the Iraqi

“(My parents) didn’t know what the situation was for an Iraqi to be in the U.S. They were afraid mostly because of the war — if there would be (lingering) hostilities.” — Awab Alrawe, Iraqi exchange student, University of Oregon

Student Project, which sends war-displaced Iraqi students to U.S. universities. Since 2007, the organization has persuaded 35 U.S. universities, including the UO, to grant tuition waivers to 50 Iraqi students. “We want to make reparation for the damage we did to the country,” said Robert Rosser, stateside director of the Iraqi Student Project. Huck and Kubasak live in Damascus and spend a year with each candidate student, boosting their English, lining up visas and applying to the U.S. universities. The students sign a promise that they’ll stay at the U.S. universities — and not travel — until they’ve earned their degrees. And then they must return to Iraq to help rebuild. Alrawe’s mother and father were apprehensive about his going — and staying for four years — in the United States. “They didn’t know what the situation was for an Iraqi to be in the U.S.,” he said. “They were afraid mostly because of the war — if there would be (lingering) hostilities.” Alrawe would not allow himself to think about it. “I had an idea that it was a better place than Iraq,” he said. Iraqi students find the UO is a rigorous school, he said. Alrawe adapted rapidly to life in Eugene. His English is

impeccable. “He’s a really special guy,” said Jill Cargile of the UO’s American English Institute. “He had a very strong will and motivation ... He’s in both cultures.” Alrawe, now 21, has become a popular speaker on the high school global studies circuit in Eugene. He relates better to his American classmates, he said, than to UO students from Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates. “I’m as confident in the way I live here as someone who is born here,” he said. Last May, when Najim first visited the UO campus, he took Alrawe aside. “He wanted to talk to me about how students would be in this environment,” Alrawe said. A group of oil companies, including BP and PetroChina, have signed contracts to redevelop the Rumaila oilfields in Iraq. As part of the deal, they agreed to spend $5 million a year, starting in the current academic year, sending Iraqi students abroad to learn English. English is the language of the global oil industry, Najim noted. The UO is getting $3.3 million for 15 students in the oil company-sponsored program and for a related program that will bring 40 Iraqi English teachers over two years for an intensive program at the American English Institute. The 15 students arrived at the UO last fall for a year at the American English Institute. The program paid for them to stay at the new Courtside apartments next to Matt Knight Arena. The program offered Alrawe a free room there, too, if he would help the Iraqis. “Otherwise, they would have no one to talk to,” he said. “They’re here to learn English. Basically, they know no English.”

MORTON, Wash. — Pat Miller surveyed a table covered with oozing elk hearts, kidneys and other organs. He pointed out globs of white fat on some of the specimens. “Your cardiologist doesn’t want to see a lot of this, but with wild animals, we want to see a lot of fat on the heart,” said Miller a wildlife biologist for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The more fat, the better an elk is able to get through the winter, when food sources are harder to find. Cutting apart elk organs and measuring their fat content is one way biologists continue to measure the health of the Mount St. Helens elk herd, The Daily News in Longview reported. This is the third year of the elk organs project. The past couple of years, the average fat content of Mount St. Helens cow elk has been less than ideal, but not so low that it would reduce their chances of giving birth to calves. To obtain material for their research, the biologists turn to hunters. Last fall, hunters who drew cow tags for the Mount St. Helens herd were asked to leave body parts at WDFW hatcheries and other drop sites. The bags of organs spent the winter in deep freeze. “We send them a packet of illustrations of what we’re looking for,” Miller said. Most hunters do pretty well in their field dissections, though sometimes the biologists have to discard a stray bit of lung that comes along with a heart. The hunters send along notes, too. “The first one we looked at said he was doing it after dark in the pouring rain — but he did get all of it,” Miller said. Last week, a group of 16 WDFW employees and volunteers assembled in a warehouse of the agency’s Cowlitz Wildlife Area in Morton to examine the body parts. The team included students from Washington State University and Portland State University. The 148 returned bags of elk organs were laid out in neat rows in an unheated garage. Scott McCorquodale, the WDFW’s statewide deer and elk specialist, called the fat counts from past years “a bit on the lean side,” though not dangerously low.

CALIFORNIA SEA OTTERS

Researchers confounded by animal’s failure to thrive

New York Times News Service

With a Lytro camera, you take a picture as you would with any camera, but the digital file it creates can be refocused after the fact.

A camera for the future, but not quite yet By Sam Grobart New York Times News Service

When cameras went from analog to digital, it was one of those once-in-a-generation shifts, like going from blackand-white film to Kodachrome. But whether you’re using a 35-millimeter or a point-andshoot, the steps you take to shoot a picture have remained the same: you focus on something, then push a button to record the image. A new camera called a Lytro heralds a new era. TECH You take a picture and refocus it after you have taken it. Just by clicking around a photo on your computer screen, you choose which part of the image should be clear and which part should be blurry. It’s astonishing technology. In the last couple of weeks that I’ve used it, the Lytro has changed me as a photographer and how I think about photography itself. Imagine a wedding photo with the bride in the foreground and the wedding party in the background. Click on the bride, and she’s in focus while the bridesmaids are blurry. Click on the groomsmen and the focus shifts to them. Do this over and over all around the frame — the picture readjusts on the fly, smoothly moving from one focal point to another. The effect makes photography almost like cinematography, revealing things vividly in the foreground and background. Refocusing a Lytro image, I felt like one of those CIA agents in the movies who is looking at satellite images and asks some technician to “enhance” the picture until Carlos the Jackal comes into focus. The Lytro, which began shipping from lytro.com last week, can do this because its image sensor captures more data than your standard camera does. Lytro’s sensor registers the usual things — like how bright the incoming light is and what colors it contains — but it also knows which direction the light is coming from. Armed with that information — known among scientists as light-field data — the Lytro’s onboard software can create multiple focal points. This all happens in a camera the size and shape of a stick of butter. It’s an unconventional design, with a lens at one end and a small, iPod Nano-size touch screen at the other. On the top of the camera is a recessed button for the shutter release and a strip of bumps you slide your finger across to control the 8X optical zoom. On the bottom is a USB port and the power button. It’s a simple and elegant package, but the shape and feel take a little getting used to; you feel a little like a ship captain of yore with a spotting scope. See Camera / C6

MONTEREY, Calif. — On a fog-shrouded morning in Monterey Bay, wildlife researchers are out to capture a southern sea otter named Blanca — part of a three-year project to learn why her species, hunted to near extinction a century ago, is still in trouble here despite decades of efforts to bring it back. Blanca is not cooperating. Because wild sea otters bolt at the whiff of human presence, the only way to catch one SCIENCE is when it is asleep. Blanca is tagged with a radio transmitter, and scientists onshore are tracking her by telemetry and telescope. About 8:30 a.m., she begins diving for crabs in a kelp bed off Cannery Row. In a skiff on the bay, three otter biologists — Tim Tinker, Brian Hatfield and Joe Tomoleoni — wait for her to stop feeding and take a nap. And wait. And wait. When Blanca finally dozes, five hours after the tracking began, Hatfield and Tomoleoni slip into the water 270 yards away, with scuba gear and underwater scooters rigged with nets. Long minutes pass. Then Tinker, watching with binoculars from the boat, sees her awaken and plunge beneath the surface. “She just saw you,” he tells his companions by radio. “Target is gone. It’s over.” For the wildlife biologists, a clear explanation for the sea otters’ failure to thrive is proving just as elusive. See Sea otters / C6

An Idaho company should start generating electricity at its commercial geothermal energy plant in Eastern Oregon in June. Construction crews stand ready to bolt the plant together — as soon as the trucks deliver all of it. The plant will arrive in sections. They will be trucked northwest from Houston, with the second and third modules arriving right on the tail of the first, said Doug GREEN Glaspey, president of the company behind the project, U.S. Geothermal Inc. of Boise, Idaho. “There’s all kinds of finish lines,” Glaspey said. The company already operates similar facilities in Raft River, Idaho, and San Emidio, Nev. It wants to build another in Guatemala. Here in Oregon, across 10 square miles of private land near the Bully Creek Reservoir west of Vale, the company has

“When … Neal Hot Springs comes online, we will become a cashflow positive company.” — Doug Glaspey, president, U.S. Geothermal Inc.

been drilling wells, erecting accessory buildings and preparing the site for the plant modules. Idaho Power Co., which will buy the electricity the plant generates, has built a substation and transmission line running to the site. Just one or two more wells are left for engineers to drill on site, Glaspey said. And workers are

connecting pipelines, he added. The goal of all the work, and $130 million in expenditures: to generate 23 megawatts of electricity from the energy of a 300-degree reservoir 2,500 feet underground. The Oregon Department of Energy expects the geothermal project to be the first in the state to produce electricity on an industrial scale. A plant in the southeast Oregon town of Adel, which a Nevada company is building, should follow in 2013. Nationally and even locally, production of geothermal energy — using heat underground to create electricity with steam and turbines and heat buildings on the surface — is not new.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — California sea otters are increasingly falling victim to shark attacks, marine biologists have found. Two scientists, Tim Tinker and Brian Hatfield, both of the U.S. Geological Survey, reported Friday that 335 dead or ailing otters washed ashore in California in 2011, a record. About 30 percent of the carcasses had shark bites — almost four times the rate in the 1980s and early ‘90s. Shark attacks are now the single biggest cause of stranded-otter deaths. “It sort of dwarfs everything else,” Tinker said. The researchers suspect that great white sharks — a protected species — are to blame, based on identifiable tooth fragments, telltale half-moon tooth punctures or distinctive scratches in up to 25 percent of bitten otters, Hatfield said. In the past, shark run-ins were mainly a hazard for the male otters that dominate an area near elephant seal breeding grounds off the coast near Santa Cruz, at the north end of the species’ range. But the last few years have seen an exponential rise in shark attacks, in particular against female and male otters living about 100 miles north of Santa Barbara, along a 30-mile zone between Morro Bay and Pismo Beach. The loss of the females, and the pups they would otherwise birth, cuts directly into the sluggish growth of the overall threatened California otter population of 2,700. “It makes the picture more grim, at least as far as further population recovery,” Tinker said. Other major challenges to the species include infections related to coastal pollution and limited food supplies. In an unpublished new analysis, Tinker, Hatfield and colleagues estimated that had shark-attack rates held steady since the ’90s, the otter population would have grown 2.5 percent per year to reach a total of 3,250.

LOS ANGELES — It started as normal Hollywood friction — an actress who wanted better lines and a writer annoyed by her suggestions. But the squabble on the “Desperate Housewives� set four years ago took an unusually nasty turn that led last week to a downtown Los Angeles courtroom. Actress Nicollette Sheridan told a jury that series creator Marc Cherry slapped Nick Ut / The Associated Press her in the head during a rehearsal after she repeatedly Nicollette Sheridan apquestioned him about delet- peared in court to testify ing what she considered to about her firing from “Desbe a particularly funny line perate Housewives� after she says the series’ creator, for her character. “It stunned me,� Sheridan Marc Cherry, hit her on the said of what she described as set. a “nice wallop� to her temple.

A  & A  

Will happy long-distance couple be happy together? Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Jackson,� and I have been in a long-distance relationship for two years. We recently learned that we both have been accepted to our “dream� college, which means we’ll live close to each other for the first time. I’m excited, but nervous about what the adjustment will be like. Jackson is my first boyfriend, so I don’t know what it’s like to be with someone who can physically be around all the time. Normally, we communicate by phone or video chat and lead our separate lives. But when we visit each other, our days just revolve around the two of us. I miss Jackson when we’re apart, but I enjoy having the freedom to study, hang out with friends and have “me time� while still being in a happy relationship. From what I have heard, college life is fun, but busy. I love Jackson and want to be with him, but I also want to make new friends and focus on schoolwork. (He wants that, too.) I’m afraid that once we get to college we’ll either be so wrapped up in each other that we miss out on other stuff, or get so busy with school and friends that we never see each other. Jackson shares my concerns, but neither of us knows how to make sure we strike a good balance. Can you help us? — Anxious In Florida Dear Anxious: You and your boyfriend need to be sure your priorities are in order when you get to school. First and foremost, you’re both there to get an education. And aside from academics, a part of that education is developing relationships and availing yourself of experiences beyond the field you will be studying. While spending time together is important, so is balance, so keep in mind that too much togetherness can distract from your studies or even become so claustrophobic that it kills the relationship.

DEAR ABBY Dear Abby: I was born in a small Midwestern town in the mid-1960s. An out-of-wedlock pregnancy then was a huge scandal, so my mother married someone who wasn’t my father and my biological father vanished. I found out about it at 17 (not from her) and was told the name she claimed belonged to him. It’s a very unique name. I believe I have located him. Part of me wants to contact him — not to get anything, just to let him know I exist. Allegedly, Mom told him she was pregnant and he refused to marry her, but her truthfulness leaves much to be desired. I haven’t been able to find his email address, but I have found a street address. I’m not sure if I should contact him or not. Would it be too much of a disruption to hear from a daughter he wanted nothing to do with 45 years ago? I don’t want to upset him or cause problems in his life, but I need some closure. — Somebody’s Child in Illinois Dear Somebody’s Child: It may not be a disruption, but it is certain to be a surprise. This would be easier if your mother’s word was reliable, but you must work with what you have. Write the man a letter explaining what you have told me, assuring him you want nothing from him, and giving him the details of your life, including your contact information. Send it by certified mail and request verification of delivery. Then cross your fingers that you have the right man, and that if he is, he has enough character to respond. — Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

$6.5 million, and a company it teamed up with, AltaRock Energy Inc. of Seattle, got more than $23 million. “That triggered basically a boon in permitting for geothermal,� said Bob Houston, an energy resource geologist at the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries. High gasoline prices and renewable energy mandates also fueled the increase, he said. Now U.S. Geothermal is leading the way to bring the first commercial supply of electricity from a geothermal project in the state. Houston thinks it’s possible for others to start up near Vale and other areas east of the Cascades. Glaspey said his company, U.S. Geothermal, could drive the future efforts. In a quarterly report filed in December with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company said it wants to build a second plant near Neal Hot Springs, with a 28-megawatt capacity, slightly larger than the first.

But that work is far off. First the company needs to see what the underground reservoir can handle, and how much water is available. Once the new U.S. Geothermal plant becomes operational, electricity will go to customers of Idaho Power Co., which in 2009 signed an agreement with the company to purchase the power for 25 years. Idaho Power serves customers in Eastern Oregon and southern Idaho. For now, even with the operation of its current plants, U.S. Geothermal has been losing money, not gaining it, according to the company’s quarterly report. In the fourth quarter of 2011,

Sea otters Continued from C1 Almost wiped out by fur traders, the species rebounded after an international ban on commercial otter hunting in 1911. But today, the otter population in California is just 2,700, in a mosaic of small, separate colonies off the coast, down from perhaps as many as 16,000 in the past. Multiple factors are stalling the recovery. One popular view, supported by veterinary pathologists who study dead otters, primarily blames coastal pollution — in the form of parasites, bacteria, toxins and chemicals. But Tinker and other biologists say that, at least in the areas where the sea otter population is highest, off Monterey and nearby Big Sur, the underlying problem is simply that the otters are running out of food. While they are not starving to death, they are depleting their favorite prey, sea urchins and abalone, and having to spend more time hunting. Poor nutrition is compromising their fitness to survive diseases or other threats, said Tinker, who runs the U.S. Geological Survey’s otter research program. “They’re not getting enough food to make it through.” Reports from Tinker’s team also suggest that otters are particularly vulnerable to sharks.

Hunting for answers Bridging the two scientific camps, Tinker is working closely with veterinary experts and biologists at the California Department of Fish and Game, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the University of California and elsewhere. The wildlife sleuths have been tracking diet, behavior, diseases, births and deaths among 90 radio-tagged sea otters that live off urban Monterey or pristine Big Sur. The sites differ mainly in that Monterey Bay receives more polluted runoff. Last fall, the team was recapturing the otters to take more blood samples, pluck whiskers and retrieve a small, implanted, pen-shaped instrument (all with anesthesia) from each. The instrument recorded a trove of data on body temperature and the time and depth of every dive an otter had made in the past year. By telescope, the scientists observed what the otters ate in more than 20,000 foraging dives. More information is coming from a novel test analyzing the chemical composition of the otter whiskers (based on the principle “you are what you eat,” said Seth Newsome, a research collaborator from the University of Wyoming). And a new genetic technique detects whether pollutants and pathogens are impairing the otters’ immunological health, even before they get sick. The new blood test screens activity in 14 key genes, said Lizabeth Bowen, a geneticist at the Geological Survey who developed the test with Jeffrey Stott of the University of California, Davis. The genetic signatures can reveal whether an animal is experiencing subtle physiological stress, inflammation or infection by bacteria or parasites, Bowen said — or reacting to exposure to pollutants like PCBs. The testing cannot yet tell precisely which contaminant may be stressing the otters. The Big Sur-Monterey study is part of a larger, multiagency effort called the Pacific Nearshore Project, which is comparing nine distinct sea otter populations and the health of their coastal habitats in the northern Pacific. The broader project is investigating why some colonies in southeastern Alaska, British Columbia and Washington that were growing rapidly two decades ago — by 20 percent a year — have seen that rate slowed by half, said its leader, James Bodkin of the Geological Survey’s Alaska Science Center. The California otters’ growth rate is even more lackluster: usually less than 5 percent a year and, lately, near zero. Sea otters are remarkably voracious: To survive frigid waters, they must fuel a high metabolism by consuming 25 to 30 percent of their body weight every day. Veterinary scientists, who tend to favor the coastalpollution explanation, note that the otters dine on many types of shellfish and invertebrates that are prone to accumulating contaminants. As a result, the animals “are getting hit with so many things,”

Sharks Continued from C1 Such an increase would pass the threshold of 3,090, allowing southern sea otters to be considered for removal from the federal endangered species list. The rise in the rate of attacks is a mystery. The researchers said that juvenile white sharks could be mistaking the otters for their favorite foods — sea lions or young elephant seals, whose populations have been expanding. After taking a “test bite,” sharks do not appear to eat the otters. The biters might be one or more individual “errant” white sharks, or other species like mako, sevengill or salmon sharks, said Barbara Block, a marine biologist at Stanford University. She and Tinker hope to collaborate to find answers. It was unclear whether the population of white sharks off the central California coast is changing. A 2011 estimate by Block’s team, the first ever, suggested that the numbers were “extremely low” — only a tenth as many as the otters. California’s coastal waters are like the Serengeti in Africa, Block said, and shark-otter interactions are a sign of a strong healthy ecosystem “with lots of toothy predators in the backyard.” — Ingfei Chen, New York Times News Service

said Melissa Miller, a veterinary pathologist at the California Fish and Game Department who autopsies stranded otters. “I picture it sometimes almost like otters are sitting there right at that land-sea interface with their mouths open.” In 2010, Miller and her associates reported evidence that microcystin, a toxin from bluegreen algae that live only in freshwater lakes and streams, had killed at least 21 sea otters. Another toxin, domoic acid, is also deadly to the animals. Such poisons are generated by harmful growths of algae that can be fed by fertilizers in agricultural runoff. Dr. David Jessup, a veterinarian retired from the state wildlife agency, says other leading killers include disease-causing parasites transmitted in feces from cats and opossums; infections by bacteria in human or animal feces; and industrial pollutants, which may subtly affect otter immune defenses. These factors all “have some connection to human activities,” he said.

‘Nutritional stress’ But to ecologists, emerging evidence instead strongly suggests that elevated rates of infectious diseases are mostly a symptom of a larger problem — insufficient food resources and malnutrition. “When animals reach a point of extreme nutritional stress,” Tinker said, “they will succumb to whatever particular stressor they encounter first” — whether a parasite or toxin, a boat strike or a shark attack that a well-fed otter might otherwise fend off or evade. Even without harmful pathogens from land, “I think they would be dying from something else,” said James Estes, a marine ecologist at the University of California, Santa Cruz. While these ecologists do not minimize the importance of cleaning up coastal pollution, they doubt it would lead to a major rebound in the sea otter population off Big Sur and Monterey. Tinker says these areas probably cannot sustain any more otters, given the available supplies of sea urchins, abalone and other shellfish. The results from the current comparison study, due this spring, may help resolve some of the debate by answering whether otters fare better in the cleaner waters at Big Sur. Preliminary genetic tests indicate higher stress, inflammation and exposure to pathogens and pollutants in the Monterey group, Tinker said. But survival data have not been analyzed. For now, the research partners agree to disagree. No single answer can explain the California sea otter mystery. For instance, food is abundant elsewhere in the otter range, so why aren’t animals rapidly multiplying there and moving into unoccupied territories? No one knows for sure.

Camera Continued from C1 The Lytro weighs 7.6 ounces, a bit more than some point-and-shoots, but not so much that you’d notice. There’s no removable storage or battery: the camera comes with either 8GB of memory (350 pictures, costing $399) or 16GB (750 pictures, costing $499). Since the Lytro captures light rays, not pixels, its sensor is rated at 11 megarays (11 million rays) instead of pixels. Both models come with a lithium-ion battery that is good for up to 600 shots between charges, the camera’s maker says. Turning on the Lytro is nearly instantaneous, as with a point-and-shoot; the touch screen comes to life in about a second. That touch screen is one of the Lytro’s weaker points; it’s a little like that Woody Allen joke about the restaurant (“The food at this place is really terrible. And such small portions!”). After years of viewing large, crisp displays on smartphones and even point-and-shoots, the Lytro’s 1.5-inch LCD screen seems too grainy and small to really get a sense of what you’re shooting. The touch screen’s interface is more successful. When shooting, swiping up reveals an on-screen panel with battery life and memory-capacity information. Swiping to the right takes you to previously shot images. You can also switch between “everyday mode,” where the refocus range is determined automatically, and “creative mode,” which gives the photographer control over the refocus range. You do have to pick something to be in focus — there’s no “all in focus” feature, though Lytro says a software update will include it later this year. After a picture has been taken, you can play around with focal points on the camera’s display, but the Lytro’s small LCD doesn’t make that a very pleasurable experience — it’s better to do it on a computer.

Jason Bradley via New York Times News Service

These photos taken with a Lytro camera feature different focal points, which were created after the photo was taken.

(Right now, that computer has to be a Mac; the company says it will have Windows software later this year.) Taking pictures with the Lytro reveals other benefits besides focusing after the fact. For starters, being able to refocus later means you don’t have to focus now. Since the camera is pulling in multiple focal points all at once, the Lytro doesn’t have the shutter lag point-and-shoots have. It’s not SLR fast, but you can fire away with little delay. You can upload photos to your computer via the included USB cable. Bear in mind that Lytro photos don’t leap onto your computer. They take more than one minute per shot to be uploaded and processed into clickable, refocusable images. If you’re uploading dozens of photos, go downstairs and make a sandwich, or maybe a cassoulet, while the camera does its thing. Given that a Lytro picture is meant to be played around with, the format is not really intended for printed photos. You can generate a print, but it will be at a fairly low resolution, 1080 by 1080 pixels. That’s good enough for a 3-by5-inch or maybe a 5-by-7-inch print, but anything larger will look grainy. So the Lytro is an astonishing new technology, presented in an attractive design, with easy-to-use software. But that doesn’t mean you should buy it. The Lytro has some drawbacks — and not inconsiderable ones. For starters, you can’t share photos while on the go. This is surprising, given that one of the big movements in photography has

been the rise of smartphone cameras, which let us share photos the moment we take them. If you were to tear a Lytro apart, you’d see a dormant Wi-Fi chip inside, so clearly there’s going to be an evolution with some wireless capability. But for now, what Change your mind. Change your life.

happens on a Lytro stays on a Lytro, until you plug it into your computer. And while refocusing is its own interesting tool, it’s the only tool you have at this point — adding a filter or importing the image into Photoshop remains impossible. Then there’s the price: $400 or $500 is not chump change, even for nonchumps. It’s too expensive for basic photo purposes (that’s what your phone’s camera is for). The potential of light-field photography is great — that whole “don’t have to focus” thing is maybe even more impressive than focusing after the fact — but there’s a difference between a great technology and a great product. For now, I tip my hat to the innovators at Lytro, but I’m not opening my wallet.

NFL Bounty probe not over yet NEW YORK — The NFL’s investigation that found the New Orleans Saints paid bounties to players for knocking opponents out of games is far from over. League spokesman Greg Aiello said in an email to The Associated Press on Sunday the NFL will be “addressing the issues raised as part of our responsibility to protect player safety and the integrity of the game.” Those issues could include previous seasons, too. Several players around the league have said the Saints and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams weren’t the only ones with such a system. Former Redskins safety Matt Bowen said Williams had a similar bounty scheme when he was in Washington. Aiello said the league would not comment on other reports. He added that the NFL will look at “any relevant info regarding rules being broken,” saying that is “standard procedure.” Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh insisted Sunday his team had no bounty program. “I don’t take part in those things and nor do my teammates and nor my coaches. We don’t allow that,” said Suh, who was suspended for two games this season for stomping on an opponent and has been fined frequently by the NFL for “rough play.” “For me, personally, and I know my teammates, we don’t want to put anybody out,” he added. “Especially me, I would never want anybody to target me to take me out, so why would I do it against somebody else.” The Saints maintained a bounty pool of up to $50,000 the past three seasons, the NFL said. Payoffs came for inflicting game-ending injuries, among other events. — The Associated Press

and Runco knew he was going to coach basketball at Sisters High, even when Sisters High did not exist. Sisters’ first high school closed its doors in 1968. The town’s students — including the young Runco — were bused to Redmond until Sisters opened a new high school in 1992. “In sixth grade, a friend asked me what I was going to do when I grew up,” says Runco, who was raised in Sisters. “There was no high school in Sisters at the time.

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL COMMENTARY

A primer for upcoming madness of March By Jon Wilner San Jose Mercury News

We’re less than a week away from what, for some, is the most anticipated day of the college basketball season: Office Pool Monday (which is quickly followed by NCAA Tournament Tuesday, with the first day of the First Four). If you haven’t paid close attention for the past four months, if you don’t know which Zeller brother plays for Indiana and which plays for North Carolina — and especially if you didn’t even know there were Zeller brothers — here’s a primer: The best team in the

land is Kentucky, with its stable of future NBA lottery picks. Unless the best team is North Carolina, with its, er, stable of future NBA lottery picks. Or it could be Syracuse, the best team in the best conference, the Big East. Then again, it could be Michigan State or Kansas or Ohio State or Missouri or Duke. If you’re looking for the elite, those eight are it — unless Baylor gets its act together or Marquette keeps sizzling. See March / D4

the high school varsity coach at Sisters High. I had the faith.” Sisters’ boys basketball head coach since the 1997-98 season, Runco, 45, this year has guided the Outlaws to the state tournament’s final site for the first time since 1999. His 2011-12 team is 23-3 and plays North Valley this Thursday in a Class 4A quarterfinal at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis. Now in his 14th season leading the Sisters boys program — Runco took a sabbatical from coaching during the 2008-09 campaign to build schools in Nepal with his nonprofit organization Ten Friends — the longtime Outlaw coach has his team right in the thick of what could be one of the most competitive state tourna-

No. 1 Kentucky, with forward Anthony Davis, is the favorite to win the national title.

Wade Payne The Associated Press file

Longtime Sisters boys basketball head coach Rand Runco has led the Outlaws to a 23-3 record and a berth in the 4A state quarterfinals ments for mid-sized schools in recent memory. Sisters ended the regular season as one of eight 4A teams with a winning percentage of .800 or better. “There’s 14 really good teams in the playoffs,” Runco says. “And eight of those are the full package.” The Outlaws certainly fall into the “full package” category, having won 17 consecutive games entering Thursday’s quarterfinal contest. Senior John Erickson, a 6-foot-3-inch shooting guard, has already signed to play at NCAA Division II University of Alaska Anchorage next season, and 6-5 junior forward Eli Harrison is a likely all-state selection this season.

Pro race in Boise is all about women By Laura Winberry For The Bulletin

It won’t be taking place in Central Oregon, but this Memorial Day weekend, North America’s only International Cycling Union (UCI) 2.1 designated race for 2012 — the Exergy Tour — will be happening a little more than 300 miles away in Boise, Idaho.

This one isn’t about the men, though, it’s all about the CENTRAL women. Sponsored by Exergy Development Group (a renewable energy company headquartered in Boise) and overseen by the same event managers of the acclaimed Amgen Tour of California (Medalist Sports), the Exergy Tour is on a par with the most prestigious and competitive women’s cycling stage races in the world. (According to exergytour.com, a 2.1 designation is the same ranking as the classic Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile — the ladies Tour of Italy — and places the Exergy Tour among the same classification as many of the long-established European races.

• Beavers overpower Northern Illinois: Dylan Davis was four for four with a home run and four RBIs Sunday, leading a 16-hit Oregon State attack in the Beavers’ 11-3 win over Northern Illinois at the Coca-Cola Classic in Surprise, Ariz. The victory was the third in a row for OSU and its third in four games at the 2012 Classic. Davis, a freshman from Redmond, Wash., got the Beavers rolling in the first inning with the first home run of his college career, a three-run blast. Oregon State led just 4-3 after five innings but broke the game open with a five-run sixth. Northern Illinois fell to 0-11. The Beavers (74) return to action this weekend for their home opener in the Nike College Showcase. OSU opens the three-day, four-game event Friday against West Virginia. Game time at Goss Stadium is set for 5:35 p.m. • Ducks make it 10 straight: Aaron Jones singled in the winning run from third base with two outs on the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, as Oregon extended its victory streak to 10 games with an 8-7 comefrom-behind decision over Long Beach State at PK Park in Eugene. The win completed a sweep of the three-game series for the Ducks, who trailed 5-1 before rallying for four runs in the seventh inning. Both teams scored twice in the eighth for a 7-7 tie, setting the stage for Jones’ ninth-inning heroics. Jones, whose decisive single was on a 3-0 pitch and plated pinch runner Vernell Warren, was one of five Oregon players to collect two hits. Brett Thomas stroked two triples, the first in the seventh, which drove in two runs. Thomas’ second triple, in the ninth, led to the winning run. The Ducks finished with 12 hits, as did Long Beach State (4-7). Oregon plays next in the Nike College Showcase and is scheduled to open against Illinois on Friday at 6 p.m. at PK Park.

The Seahawks’ bulldozing, candy-loving running back signed a fouryear contract Sunday night that will keep him in a Seattle uniform for the prime of his NFL career and coming off his finest season. Seattle announced the move less than 24 hours before the deadline for teams to use the franchise tag and Lynch would have been owed more than $7 million for one season if Seattle used the tag on him. A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that Lynch’s contract is worth $31 million, including $18

The Norwegian skier finished in 1 minute, 34.02 seconds. His compatriot Aksel Lund Svindal was second, 0.21 behind, with Beat Feuz of Switzerland in third, 0.26 behind the winner. It was the first World Cup win for Jansrud, who was beaten by the smallest of margins two days in a row. • 40th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race begins in Alaska: Sixty-six mushers began their quest to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race with the competition’s official start Sunday in Willow, Alaska.

NBA ROUNDUP

Lakers beat Heat behind Bryant’s 33 The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Although Kobe Bryant hates to disappoint everybody who thinks his 33-point performance in a win over the Miami Heat was payback to Dwyane Wade for breaking his nose in the All-Star game a week ago, that particular Hollywood fable just isn’t true. “He knew I was going to be ready regardless,” Bryant said. Yet the legend of the Masked Mamba will only grow after the Los Angeles Lakers finally struck a few blows of their own in this previously onesided matchup with mighty Miami. Bryant produced his third straight dynamic 30-point game while wearing a clear protective mask over his stilltender nose, while Wade managed just 16 points before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 93-83 victory Sunday. Metta World Peace scored 17 points while leading a solid defensive effort for the Lakers, who have won 17 of their past 18 home games and eight of 10 overall. Andrew Bynum had 16 points and 13 rebounds as Los Angeles never trailed in the final 44 minutes against Miami, snapping a four-game skid in Bryant’s head-to-head matchups with Wade’s Heat. “We did extremely well,” said Bryant, who had just 24 points in the Lakers’ loss in Miami six weeks ago. “I felt like we matched their energy and their physicality, which was a problem for us in Miami.” Just one week after Wade also gave Bryant a concussion with that hard foul in Orlando, Bryant scored 18 points in a dynamic first quarter. He added enough big baskets in the second half to keep the Lakers ahead with help from his starting frontcourt of Pau Gasol, Bynum and World Peace, which combined for 44 points and 30 rebounds while Chris Bosh remained out of Miami’s lineup. Although the Staples Center crowd roundly booed Wade during pregame introductions and the first few times he touched the ball, Wade apologized profusely after the All-Star game to Bryant, his fellow U.S. Olympian.

insisted he bore no grudge, saying Wade would never injure him on purpose. Bryant has spent much of the last week in dark rooms to ease his injuries, and he plans to keep the mask when the Lakers make a three-game road trip next week. “I got hit in the face a couple of times tonight, and it hurt even with the mask,” Bryant said. LeBron James had 25 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who lost on the final two stops of their three-game trip after nine consecutive victories. Only Mike Miller’s jumper with 21.4 seconds left saved Miami from its lowest-scoring performance of the season. Mario Chalmers scored 15 for the Heat, who played their third straight game without Bosh after the All-Star forward attended his grandmother’s funeral on Saturday. “We all know that Chris is a big part of our team, but guys have to step up in his absence,” James said. “We could have definitely used him the last couple of games, but we gave ourselves a chance to win in

Utah. Today was a little bit different. They played exceptionally well. That’s a really good team. They’re 17-2 at home for a reason. We gave it everything we had, and when you do that, you can be satisfied.” Wade didn’t seem satisfied after going seven for 17 and committed five turnovers before fouling out with 5:14 to play, committing three fouls in rapid succession for an early end to a rough day.

Hamlin holds off Harvick in Phoenix The Associated Press AVONDALE, Ariz. — Denny Hamlin spent nearly two months of the offseason in the Scottsdale area, hoping to get away from racing for a while, reinvigorate himself for the 2012 season. It seemed to do wonders, leading to a win at a place where he had one of the biggest disappointments of his career. Hamlin pulled away when NASCAR’s best closer ran out of gas and then had to sweat out his own fuel mileage before completing a confidence-boosting win at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday. “It’s a little bit of satisfaction there, for sure,” Hamlin said. “It’s a bittersweet track.” It was, in fact, the site of one of his worst memories as a driver. Hamlin seemed to have a comfortable lead over Jimmie Johnson in the penultimate race of the 2010 Chase when his title hopes were derailed by a fuel strategy that backfired. Forced to pit for fuel late in the race, he scrambled just to finish 19th while Johnson was fifth. Hamlin left the desert dejected after his lead was trimmed to 15 points and ended up losing the title the next week to Johnson, who earned his record fifth straight Sprint Cup championship. Hamlin then had a bit of a hangover to start the 2011 season and never really clicked, ending up ninth in the Sprint Cup standings. That’s where his return to the desert comes in.

MOTOR SPORTS: NASCAR Trying to get away from the constant race chatter around the Charlotte, N.C., area, Hamlin rented a house in Paradise Valley for seven weeks during the offseason. He came back strong to start this season, finishing fourth at the Daytona 500 with new crew chief Darian Grubb after qualifying 31st. Hamlin started 13th at PIR and briefly led a couple of times before beating Kevin Harvick off the line after a caution with 59 laps left. Harvick, NASCAR’s best finisher, put a scare into him toward the end, but ran out of gas on the final lap. Hamlin was concerned about gas as well, but had just enough for a celebratory burnout after his 18th career win and his first lead in the points since dejectedly leaving Phoenix in 2010. “When I come back here (and win), it puts 2011 to rest,” Hamlin said. “It’s a year I’d soon like to forget and now we can focus on winning a championship.” Hamlin had to hold off NASCAR’s version of a closer to get it. Harvick, who won three races at the finish last season, had Hamlin lined up for another last-second victory. But as he closed in on the No. 11’s bumper, Harvick’s car turned off. His team had been concerned about having enough fuel to get to the end and just missed it, the No. 29 coasting over the line just ahead of Greg Biffle for second.

NHL ROUNDUP

Stars need shootout to take out Flames The Associated Press CALGARY, Alberta — Loui Eriksson and Jamie Benn gave the Dallas Stars another full two points in their push to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Eriksson had a short-handed goal and added an assist in regulation, then scored in a shootout in Dallas’ 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night. “We haven’t been in the playoffs for a couple years,” Eriksson said. “Definitely, we need to step up here. We’ve been playing really well lately. It’s so tight in the conference. Every game is huge for us. We need to win every one here, so we have to keep going.” Benn scored on Dallas’ first attempt in the shootout, and Eriksson connected on the second. The Stars have climbed to seventh in the Western Conference. “We’re just playing simple hockey and coming together as a group to win these games and that’s what we need right now,” Benn said. “Definitely, coming down the stretch, we need as many points as we can get and we’re getting them.” Michael Ryder added a power-play goal, and Kari Lehtonen made 36 saves and assisted on Eriksson’s goal. Curtis Glencross and Jarome Iginla scored for Calgary. Also on Sunday: Flyers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 Capitals . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0 WASHINGTON — Eric

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Continued from D1 Maybe most important for Sisters has been the emergence of senior center Bryan Boswell, who at 6-8 gives the Outlaws a true post presence. “We’re athletic for sure and we’ve got some good length,” Runco says about this season’s squad. “And we’ve got a couple of very good basketball players. But what makes this team special is they really like each other. … It’s not perfect, of course, but it’s a group that really does care for one another, and it shows on the court.” Runco has seen every Sisters varsity team since the school reopened 20 years ago, so when he says a certain Outlaw bunch is special, it’s best to take notice. Having basically grown up in the gym at Redmond High, where his dad, Roy Runco, taught and coached, Rand Runco played varisty basketball at RHS and graduated in 1984. He developed during his Panther days two passions that he would carry over into his coaching career: an intense work ethic, and an extreme desire to defeat teams from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. “Pretty much my life goal is to beat any Valley team any time I can,” Runco says, only half joking. “It used to be we’d have good teams (at Redmond) in the IMC (Intermountain Conference) and then we’d go to the Valley and get smashed. I was so excited when we (Sisters High) moved into the (Sky-Em League) because it meant every week we got to go over there and beat one of their teams.” After attending college at Western Oregon and Oregon State, Runco came back to Sisters in 1990 and helped start up the town’s youth basketball leagues. He was named the junior varsity coach when the new high school opened in 1992, and he was elevated to head coach in 1997. Runco wasted no time once he was handed the reins to Sisters’ varsity program, as he guided the Outlaws to a 44-15 record in his first two seasons and back-to-back state tournament berths in what was then Class 3A. His 1998-99 squad advanced to the 3A semifinals at Gill Coliseum before eventually finishing sixth. Thirteen years since the Outlaws’ last state tournament appearance and almost three decades after his early career prediction, Runco has his hometown high school back in Corvallis with a shot at a

FINAL Saturday, 3 p.m.

12 USC (6-25, 1-17) 4

The Associated Press GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Kentucky coach John Calipari never mentioned perfection to his team before Sunday’s game at Florida. He talked about pride. The Wildcats ended up with both. Freshman Anthony Davis had 22 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks, Terrence Jones added 19 points and the top-ranked Wildcats capped a perfect season in Southeastern Conference play with a 74-59 victory over No. 16 Florida. Kentucky (30-1, 16-0) set a school record for regularseason wins, extended its winning streak to 22 games and secured its hold on a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats are the No. 1 seed in next week’s SEC tournament. “I told them prior to the game, ‘Look, bottom line is if we lose we’re still a one seed. It doesn’t change our seeding. It doesn’t do anything. But it’s about pride,’ ” Calipari said. “... That was the message prior to the game: just go have pride and play.” The Wildcats became just the third team since Alabama in 1956 to go unbeaten in SEC play. The other two? Kentucky. The powerhouse program accomplished the feat in 1996 and 2003. “To be a part of one of them, it’s a great honor,” Davis said. Big Blue faced little resistance in the regular-season finale.

Madness Continued from D1 We know the best team does not reside in the woeful Pac-12, and we know it’s not Butler. The Bulldogs, who reached the championship game the past two years, won’t even make the NCAAs this year unless they win the Horizon League tournament (as the No. 5 seed). But there are a handful of Butler wannabes — teams from outside the traditional power conferences with the potential to bust your brackets and reach the Final Four. The list starts with Wichita State and includes Murray State, Southern Mississippi

USC (18-11, 12-6)

and Long Beach State. And New Mexico and Gonzaga and Davidson, which beat Kansas. And Saint Louis and Saint Mary’s and UNLV, which beat North Carolina. While the odds are stacked against any of them reaching New Orleans — the Final Four is traditionally stocked with teams from the power conferences — there’s a good chance a handful will survive the opening week. They’re all well coached, many of them played demanding schedules, and a few possess playmakers capable of hitting big shots in the crucible of March. The best of the group is prob-

ably Creighton forward Doug McDermott, who averaged 25.3 points in three games against Big Ten opponents. Then again, UNLV forward Mike Moser had 16 points and 18 rebounds against North Carolina. And New Mexico’s Drew Gordon will be one of the tournament’s most talented big men. One of them might make the play that topples North Carolina, which possesses the nation’s best front line (center Tyler Zeller and forwards Harrison Barnes and John Henson) but isn’t always locked in defensively. Or maybe Kentucky is the upset victim. The Wildcats

have the projected No. 1 pick in the NBA draft in forward Anthony Davis, but their starting five includes three freshmen. No player is more equipped to carry his team to the title than Kansas forward Thomas Robinson, except the Jayhawks are always a threat to flame out in the early rounds. (Pick them if you dare.) And no coaches are more capable of pulling the right strings in March than Michigan State’s Tom Izzo, North Carolina’s Roy Williams and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski. You don’t need to have watched a single game the past four months to know that.

Victory makes McIlroy golf’s new No. 1 By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

Rainier Ehrhardt / The Associated Press

Rory McIlroy reacts after winning the Honda Classic golf tournament in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., Sunday. McIlroy became the top-ranked golfer in the world with the win.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Rory McIlroy was six holes away from winning the Honda Classic and going to No. 1 in the world, an outcome that looked inevitable as he stood on the 13th green Sunday at PGA National. That’s when he heard the roar. Even from the farthest corner of the course, McIlroy knew it was for Tiger Woods. And McIlroy could tell by the sheer volume that it was an eagle. “I could hear the huge roar,” McIlroy said. “And it definitely wasn’t a birdie roar.” For Woods, it was a moment that finally put some color into that red shirt, a birdie-eagle finish for a 62, the lowest final round of his career to get within one shot of the lead and force the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland to play the final hour with little room for error. But this is no ordinary kid. McIlroy answered with clutch shots of his own, a performance that showed why he’s the new No. 1 in golf. He poured in the 8-foot birdie putt on the 13th for a two-shot lead. He gouged out a wedge from grass so deep he could barely see the ball to save par on the 14th, and he twice saved par from the bunker on the scary par 3s for a 1-under 69 and a two-shot win. “It was tough today, especially seeing Tiger make a charge,” McIlroy said. “I knew par golf would probably be good enough. To shoot 1 under in these conditions, when you go into the round with the lead, is very nice. And I was just able to get the job done.” McIlroy became the 16th player to be No. 1 since the world ranking began in 1986, and the fourth player in the past 16 months since Woods abdicated the top spot after a five-year reign. McIlroy replaced Luke Donald and became the second-youngest player to be No. 1 behind Woods, who was 21 when he first got to the top after the 1997 U.S. Open. “It was always a dream of mine to be-

“It was always a dream of mine to become the world No. 1 and the best player in the world or whatever you want to call it. But I didn’t know that I would be able to get here this quickly. ... Hopefully, I can hold onto it for a little longer.” — Rory McIlroy

come the world No. 1 and the best player in the world or whatever you want to call it,” McIlroy said. “But I didn’t know that I would be able to get here this quickly. ... Hopefully, I can hold onto it for a little longer.” He celebrated by flying to New York to spend time with his girlfriend, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, before returning to south Florida next week for a World Golf Championship. Donald responded quickly to the victory, tweeting “Congrats@McIlroyRory enjoy the view!” Woods made two eagles in the final round and wound up two shots behind, his best finish on the PGA Tour since he was runner-up in the 2009 Tour Championship. Tom Gillis birdied the last hole for a 69 to join Woods as a runner-up. McIlroy, who finished 12-under 268, won for the fifth time in his career. Three of those are on the PGA Tour, including his record-setting victory in the U.S. Open last summer at Congressional. He has finished out of the top five only once since the PGA Championship last August, winning three times, including the Shanghai Masters in an unofficial event against a world-class field. “There’s very few players as good as him at his age out there winning tournaments,” three-time major champion Padraig Harrington said. “There are guys with potential, but he’s already delivered. And he has a good balance in his life. He

doesn’t look like a guy who is going to burn out. He looks like he’s going to be here for a while.” McIlroy shared a big hug with his father, Gerry, as he walked off the 18th green. His parents have come over from Holywood to stay with him in south Florida through the Masters, where McIlroy figures to be a favorite. After a Sunday like this, no one will be quick to rule out Woods. He was nine shots behind going into the final round, and even a 31 on the front nine in blustery conditions left him five shots behind McIlroy. But the finish — especially that 5-iron into the 18th green — was vintage Woods, and it at least gave him a chance. “To me, it was the old Tiger back, the guy that I remember,” said Ernie Els, who played alongside him. “He never missed a shot or made a bad swing.” Lee Westwood, playing two groups ahead of Woods, closed with a 63 to finish alone in fourth. “It was a lot of fun out there,” Graeme McDowell said. “It was just roars going up all over the golf course. “For Rory to go out today with a two-shot lead and have Tiger shoot 62 on him and Westwood shoot 63, it just shows how hard it is to win golf tournaments on any tour in the world, but especially this tour. “This golf season just got a lot more spicy.” McIlroy wasn’t at his best on the front nine, though he did what the best players tend to do by turning a suspect round into a decent score. Despite having only two reasonable birdie chances on the front nine — he made one of them — McIlroy saved himself with a pair of par putts from 12 feet and another one from 8 feet. No one looked capable of catching him. Woods was still five shots behind until a finish that served as a reminder why this guy can’t be counted out — not at PGA National, certainly not with the Masters around the corner. “I figured I had to go birdie-birdie to have a chance,” Woods said.

Race Continued from D1 The “2” designates a multiple-day event; the “.1” designates the true ranking or quality of the event, and events of this ranking are eligible to host the top teams in the world.) As former host of the Women’s Challenge — one of the most renowned women’s cycling races in North America from 1984 to 2002, and one of the most competitive such races in the world after obtaining its UCI sanction in 1995 (with a prize purse of $125,000 at its peak) — the city of Boise and title sponsors aim to continue along a similar line with the Exergy Tour by bridging the gap between men’s and women’s payouts. In professional cycling, women more often than not get the short end of the race purse. The Exergy Tour, however, is looking to change such disparity among male and female compensation. “From a bigger-picture standpoint,” said director of marketing for the Exergy Tour, Heather Hill, in a phone interview last week, “the vision of the title sponsor is to promote self-confidence, self-esteem and the overall health of girls and women through physical activity … as well as close the gender parity gap and offer women the same experience that men have in the sport.” From May 24 to May 28, a group of handpicked domestic and international women’s professional cycling teams, which will be announced within the next few days, will compete for a final chance to earn international ranking points essential to qualifying for the London Olympic Games in July. “I’ll just say it’s going to be awesome,” said Hill. “Idaho will definitely be welcoming the world, and we’ve designed the overall routes so spectators, fans and volunteers can take part in every day of the tour. Each of the host cities is within an hour of each other (stages will take place in Boise and in the nearby communities of Nampa, Kuna, Garden Valley/Crouch, and Idaho City), which makes for easy travel between each.” With the Exergy Tour in its first year and taking place right here in the Pacific Northwest, this world-class event presents an inaugural opportunity to expose the young, developing cyclists in your life to a high-caliber women’s cycling tour. Despite living here in “cycling central,” it is not often we get to witness one of the largest fields of former, current and future national, world and Olympic female champions competing before our very eyes. The impact on up-and-coming cyclists, especially young girls, holds considerable potential. “From a more communitydriven level it’s about educating younger girls on participating in team and individual sports,” said Hill. “It’s about showing them how cycling can be an advantage for them in terms of self-confidence and health. We look at the women

“Women’s cycling is very difficult to promote. (And) we have a long way to go before women’s cycling is on par with men’s cycling — not just in this country, but worldwide. Certainly a wellpromoted, marquee event like the Exergy Tour is a huge step in the right direction.” — Michelle Bazemore, a Bend resident and former cycling director for the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation

who will be coming here and racing and the incredible role models they are. It’s more than a race … it’s really a platform for bringing more women into the sport.” And Hill is right. A large majority of professional women cyclists balance everyday lives beyond their bikes. Many are lawyers, bankers, mothers and more, and all in addition to a full-on commitment to being top-level athletes — which includes long hours of focused training, racing, and a lot of weekends away from home. It isn’t easy. It is important, however, for young female cyclists — and young girls as a whole — to experience and witness firsthand the combined power and grace, as well as the achievements, of these older female role models. Michelle Bazemore, a Bend resident and former cycling director for the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation, also commented on the influence of an event like the Exergy Tour, as well as on the importance of bringing the support of women’s professional cycling up to the level of the men. Growing up with a six-time national champion for a father (masters road cyclist Dave Mercer), segueing into position as a youth track cycling coach in Indianapolis, and now president of the Bend Velodrome Project, Bazemore is no greenhorn to the cycling scene. “A high-level women’s race takes it one step further, providing credibility and validation. Women’s cycling is very difficult to promote,” said Bazemore. “(And) we have a long way to go before women’s cycling is on par with men’s cycling — not just in this country, but worldwide. Certainly a well-promoted, marquee event like the Exergy Tour is a huge step in the right direction.” For more information on the upcoming Exergy Tour, including announcements about attending teams, visit the race website at www.exergytour. com. —Laura Winberry is a freelance journalist who lives in Bend.
