A new lease for old Cessna site? • Aircraft maker Triton America is hoping to start up production in the Bend airport building By Nick Grube The Bulletin

A Washington-based airplane manufacturer is considering opening up operations at the Cessna Aircraft Co. building located at the Bend Municipal Airport, but has yet to reach a deal. Last month, Triton America offered to lease the land the building sits on from the city for $4.2 million over 40 years, and has indicated it would employ up to 65 people designing, making and selling aerospace products. Triton America has also entered into negotiations with Cessna to purchase its nowvacant building at the airport, though those discussions seem to have slowed. Brian Fratzke, of Fratzke Commercial Real Estate in Bend, is the broker for Triton America. On Thursday, he said Triton America “killed” its offer to Cessna, but still appears to be interested in the property. “What I’m hoping is the deal is not dead, but that’s completely up to my client,” Fratzke said.

In the past few months, the city has secured accounts on both social media platforms and has been sending out short updates on what it’s up to. Richards said the sites are new and followers should expect them to become more active in the next months. By the end of January, the city plans

to request proposals from designers who can revamp the website to integrate the social media platforms. Officials hope for a launch this summer. “When the new site is out it should respond to the way people need to access information,” Richards said. “My goal is to improve the conduit to the community and do it in the best way that works for them.” See Redmond / A4

WASHINGTON — More than 40 years ago, it was priceless.

So when officials at Heritage Auctions obtained the three-ring binder from the

Snow geese are thriving, but it may be too much of a good thing •Preservation efforts have paid off, but now the birds are so numerous that they’re a threat to other species — and themselves

By Felicity Barringer New York Times News Service

WILLOWS, Calif. — These are good days to be a snow goose on the Pacific flyway. The water in the rice fields is at an ideal depth for snacking on marsh plants. A bit of grain is left over from the harvest around the Northern California city of Chico, which is gearing up for its annual Snow Goose Festival. Just past sunset, thousands of the geese rise as one from the marshes here, a primal force riding a soft thunder of black-tipped wings. There is just one problem with this picture, which results from nearly a century of efforts to sustain the birds along their migratory paths. From the Arctic tundra to the marshes of Chesapeake Bay, snow geese have become far too much of a good thing over the past two decades, crowding out smaller species and destroying their own summer nesting grounds with their nibbling.

Population boom In places where the birds sojourn in the winter, Missouri and Mississippi River farmers consider them pests that not only eat grains but also peck and claw at plant roots, leaving fields pockmarked. In Chincoteague Bay in Maryland, they have denuded marshes with their overeating. Whether the cause of this population explosion is a warming trend in Northern breeding grounds, an increase in the food supply in their winter homes or a combination of the two, few would dispute that there are too many birds in all five groups of snow geese that migrate along North America’s flyways. “Nationally, snow geese numbers are increasing exponentially,” said Dan Frisk, the manager of the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge here. “They are de-

IN HISTORY

Peter DaSilva / New York Times News Service

Thousands of snow geese take flight from a flooded rice field near Chico, Calif., on Dec. 16. In some parts of the country, the birds are so abundant that farmers consider them pests.

Bend’s goose problem The city of Bend has had its share of headaches caused by an overabundance of geese — though in this case Canada geese, not snow geese, have been the problem. The Bend Park & Recreation District began a goose harassment plan in January 2010, citing the mess created by the birds’ droppings and the cost of cleaning up after them. Hazing tactics included chasing the geese with dogs and in boats, and oiling eggs to prevent them from hatching.

stroying their own habitat.” Snow geese breed in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Canada, Alaska and Russia and fly south or southeast in the winter. Each group has its own fixed route, from the shores of Hudson Bay to states along the Mississippi, from Canadian islands near Greenland to mid-Atlantic marshes, or from Wrangel Island in the East Siberian Sea to this area of Northern California. The population that uses the Atlantic flyway to reach East Coast marshes rose from 50,000 around 1960 to nearly 1 million in 2000 and seems to have stabilized at that level,

In June 2010, when the local goose population hit an estimated high of 400 birds, parks officials decided the harassment campaign was not enough, and rounded up 109 geese and euthanized them. The remaining goose population — estimated at about 130 birds in late September — got a reprieve this past summer, when the park district decided the ongoing hazing program was working and that killing more geese was unnecessary. — Bulletin staff reports

according to estimates from the federal Fish and Wildlife Service. Those that spend the winter in the Rocky Mountain states numbered fewer than 800,000 in 1978 but reached 3.1 million only a decade later; the population has continued to grow since then.

Overprotected? Calls for protecting migratory birds began more than a century ago, when a movement sprang up to discourage women from wearing feathered hats, the chief cause of the decimation of water bird populations. In 1918, an accord was brokered to protect birds that

could have been hunted out of existence in the U.S. and Canada, and it was later broadened to include Japan, Mexico and the Soviet Union. Federal and state officials established geese sanctuaries, began preserving and re-creating wetlands, and imposed strict limits on hunting seasons. The birds bounced back. Even the group from Wrangel Island, which was once on the Soviet Union’s “red list” of declining species, has doubled in size in the past 20 years. Wildlife agencies around the country have experimented with a variety of control measures, chief among them liberalizing kill limits during goose hunting season. Ducks Unlimited, a wetlands conservation group, circulates recipes like snow goose bourguignon, and the Arctic Goose Joint Venture, a group of American and Canadian wildlife managers and scientists, has published an entire snow goose cookbook. But reducing the snow goose population would require a vast expansion of hunting, perhaps kills organized just to thin the flocks. That is a more aggressive approach than most wildlife managers are ready to undertake, partly because of likely collateral damage to other birds.

In 1540, England’s King Henry VIII married his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves (the marriage lasted about six months). Ten years ago: Argentina announced the devaluation of its peso, ending a decadelong policy pegging the currency one-to-one with the U.S. dollar. (In the year that followed, the peso lost 70 percent of its value against the dollar.)

T S School cuts Obama takes lead in outlining or taxes? Californians a leaner U.S. defense strategy may have to choose By Anthony York and Nicholas Riccardi Los Angeles Times

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2012 budget calls for $4.8 billion in cuts to public schools if voters reject the tax increases he is trying to place on the November ballot. The budget, which says the state faces a $9.2-billion deficit, was erroneously released online Thursday, several days before the governor was due to roll it out. His office was scrambling to arrange a news con ference to discuss it. The Los Angeles Times obtained a copy of the Brown document. It paints a better fiscal picture than just a year ago, when the state faced a $26-billion deficit. Brown’s budget anticipates closing the current gap through a combination of spending cuts and the tax increases, which would kick in at year’s end, providing $4.4 billion in revenue. Even if those tax increases pass, the governor proposes slashing welfare by nearly $1 billion and MediCal by $842 million, as well as making other reductions in education. Should the tax initiative be rejected, the additional education cuts would kick in. Those reductions are the equivalent of three weeks of the school year, the document says. Brown’s budget proposal also would cut state government by a few thousand jobs and consolidate nearly 50 state organizations — and avoid furloughs. A majority of the Legislature needs to approve the budget before it becomes a reality. Democrats who control the Capitol say they don’t want to make additional cuts until they get new revenue estimates in May, in case the economy continues to improve and erases more of the deficit. — This story includes reports from McClatchy-Tribune News Service.

Drivers admit to dangerous behavior By Ashley Halsey III The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — American drivers once again have identified their enemy as themselves. When quizzed in an annual survey, they have admitted that they often are guilty of the very same behaviors they view as a menace on the road. Almost everyone said that drunken driving was unacceptable, and threequarters described drunk drivers as a serious threat. Yet 14 percent of them said that within the year, they had driven with an alcohol level probably near or above the legal limit, AAA’s Foundation for Traffic Safety reported. Cellphone use and sending text messages were dangerous, 94 percent said, but more than a third of them said they had read texts or e-mails while driving. A quarter of them also said they had sent messages. Two-thirds said they had talked on their cellphones, and a third said they do so regularly.

• The goal is a smaller, more agile force free of ‘Cold War-era systems’ By Elisabeth Bumiller and Thom Shanker New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has for the first time put his own stamp on an all-encompassing U.S. military policy by turning from the grinding ground wars that he inherited from the Bush administration and refocusing on what he described as a smaller, more agile force across Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East. In an unusual appearance at the Pentagon briefing room on Thursday, Obama outlined a new national defense strategy driven by three realities: the winding down of a

decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, a fiscal crisis demanding hundreds of billions of dollars in Pentagon budget cuts and a rising threat from China and Iran. A fourth reality, not mentioned in the briefing room, was Obama’s re-election campaign and the chorus of Republican presidential candidates who have sought to portray him as decimating the Pentagon budget and being weak in his response to Iran. Obama, who spoke surrounded by a tableau of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in dress uniforms and with chests full of medals, underscored the

national security successes of his administration — the ending of the Iraq War, the killing of Osama bin Laden and the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi of Libya — before declaring that the United States would downsize to a smaller ground force, get rid of “outdated Cold War-era systems” and step up investments in intelligence-gathering and cyberwarfare. He also said, in what seemed to be aimed at the Republicans as well as Defense officials in the room, that “our military will be leaner, but the world must know the United States is going to maintain our military superiority.”

In New Hampshire, independents have a chance to show their clout New York Times News Service

MANCHESTER, N.H. — For Emily Renfer, a 21-year-old college student from Nashua, voting is like a triple bank shot. “I think Mitt Romney will win, but I can stomach Jon Huntsman because he is moderate and liberal-ish, so if he can get a little boost in New Hampshire, he can become a larger player, and then you wouldn’t have Newt as second to Mitt,” she said. “Which is what I don’t want.” Renfer is registered as undeclared — that is, not a member of either party, just like 41 percent of New Hampshire voters. They make up the largest voting bloc in the state, compared with 30 percent who are registered Republicans and 29 percent who are registered Democrats. Undeclared voters can vote in the primaries for either party, and between 35-40 percent of them are expected to turn out for the New Hampshire

Obama goes on the offensive The Obama campaign this week unleashed a carefully scripted and deliberately aggressive strategy that showed a White House in combative re-election mode. Obama inserted himself into the media blitz of what was supposed to be an allRepublican show, the Iowa caucuses, when his campaign took out a huge advertisement that occupied the homepage of the Des Moines Register on caucus day and he spoke by

primary on Tuesday, according to separate analyses by Andy Smith at the University of New Hampshire and David Paleologos at Suffolk University in Boston, both of them longtime students of New Hampshire voting patterns. For that reason alone, independents often get a lot of

video conference to Democrats gathered in the state. On Wednesday, Obama delivered another jab, announcing four recess appointments, including Richard Cordray as head of a new consumer protection agency, despite Republican opposition. And on Thursday, the president went to the Pentagon and outlined a new military strategy that embraces hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to what is a Republican sacred cow. — New York TImes News Service

Romney sets his sights on Obama By Susan Saulny and Jeff Zeleny New York Times News Service

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Enjoying a strong lead in New Hampshire polls, Mitt Romney flew here Thursday to get a jump-start with voters in the first Southern primary and begin what might be his biggest challenge yet: convincing Republicans in this socially conservative state that he is the candidate who best represents their values. Fresh from a victory lap through New Hampshire after

narrowly winning the Iowa caucuses Tuesday, Romney spoke at a rally with Gov. Nikki Haley, who was elected with the help of the tea party movement, and Sen. John McCain, who won this state in 2008. Romney did not once mention his main rival now for the nomination, Rick Santorum, who finished a close second in Iowa. Instead, he went straight for President Barack Obama, calling him a “job killer” who is “over his head” and accusing him of “crony capitalism” for

making three appointments to the National Labor Relations Board without congressional approval, suggesting the move was a reward to organized labor for its support. South Carolina is a critical piece in the strategy of the Romney campaign and perhaps its toughest challenge yet in an unpredictable nominating contest. The outcome of the primary could play a crucial role in determining how long the Republican contest remains a competitive fight.

voters, but he could not have won without the Republican base. This year, between 60-65 percent of registered Republicans are expected to turn out, giving them even more weight in the primary, according to Smith and Paleologos. And that is the trick again this year for Republican presidential candidates: Any appeal that does not go to the base could be the kiss of death. Even in New Hampshire, where the party is more moderate than Republicans nationally, candidates are trying to walk this fine line, appealing to independents without alienating the base. “You can’t come to New Hampshire and say, ‘I’m the independent,’” said Steve Duprey, a former state party chairman who backed McCain and now, as a Republican National Committeeman, must stay neutral. “You need to have your base within the party and then attract independents, not the other way around.”

541-322-CARE At The Center

KABUL, Afghanistan — President Hamid Karzai on Thursday called for the United States to hand over its biggest military prison in Afghanistan within one month, despite repeated warnings that Afghan institutions are woefully unprepared to detain or try suspected terrorists. Karzai claimed that Afghan government investigators found violations of the Afghan constitution and international human rights Karzai conventions at the prison, which houses about 2,600 inmates near Bagram Airfield. He did not provide details about the alleged violations, but said in a statement that they constituted a “breach of Afghan sovereignty.” The transfer of the prison, called the Parwan detention center, and its burgeoning population of detainees is regarded by both Afghans and Americans as a critical marker of the war’s endgame, a sign that Afghan officials are ready to inherit institutions essential to the nation’s future. U.S. officials said in a public memorandum two years ago that they expected the prison to be transferred in early 2012. Karzai interpreted that timeline as being firm, but U.S. officials point to a caveat in the document: that it was subject to “demonstrated capacity.”

Gunmen ambushed and killed a prominent tribal elder in Afghanistan’s Helmand province Wednesday as he was on his way to evening prayers, officials said.

Planes Continued from A1 “They’re an extremely large company and they are the decision maker. ... I’m doing everything I can to keep the momentum going.” The Cessna building, which includes both manufacturing and hanger space, is on the market for nearly $6 million. It was previously listed at $7 million. Fratzke said one of the complicating factors in negotiations is that Cessna owns the building, while the city owns the land. This means that anyone purchasing the Cessna building will also have to separately negotiate a lease agreement with the city. Today Cessna still pays a monthly fee to the city even though it no longer occupies the building. “All the financial didn’t pencil for Triton’s needs,” Fratzke said. “They’re still trying to knock on it, and I think there are other people knocking on the Cessna building.” As part of Triton America’s Dec. 14 offer to the city, the company would pay an escalating monthly rent over 40 years that would equal $4.2 million. The lease would also include three 20-year options for renewal. Bend Business Advocate Jon Skidmore said the city has responded to Triton America’s offer, but said he didn’t want to divulge too much information due to the sensitivity of the negotiations. “We’re still speaking,” Skidmore said. “I think they’re beyond the kicking-the-tire stage.” Cessna employed more than 400 employees in Bend before shuttering the doors to its 200,000-square-foot facility in 2009. The Wichita, Kan.-based company acquired the building after buying Columbia Aircraft Corp. out of bankruptcy court. Triton America is owned by aerospace engineer Thomas Hsueh, who was unavailable for comment Thursday. One of his companies, Triton Aerospace, in Burlington, Wash., develops and manufactures composite aircraft. According to April 2011 report from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, Hsueh intends to manufacture the Adam A500, a small passenger plane that ceased production when the company that originally made it went into bankruptcy. He is also known to have looked at opening a manufacturing facility in Bend before. In a 2009 Aviation International News report, Hsueh said he was looking at the Cessna building as a possible aircraft production site. — Reporter: 541-633-2160, ngrube@bendbulletin.com

Flu virus puts pork industry on high alert By Stephanie Armour Bloomberg News

WASHINGTON — A new flu virus thought to have originated in pigs has agricultural producers on alert two years after a swine flu pandemic caused sales to drop and disrupted U.S. pork exports. Twelve people in five states have been infected, with three hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. At least six reported no recent exposure to pigs, suggesting “limited human-to-human transmission,” according to the report. Eleven of those stricken were children. The virus may not become as prevalent as the 2009 variant, known as H1N1, which led to as many as 89 million cases and 18,300 deaths in the United States in the first flu pandemic in more than 40 years, according to the CDC. Still, livestock producers are concerned that consumers may fear they can get a potentially lethal disease from eating pork. Flu is transmitted through droplets of infected body fluids when people cough, sneeze or talk. “It’s always something that we need to keep an eye on, that it doesn’t get more severe or spread more quickly,” Liz Wagstrom, chief veterinarian with the National Pork Producers Council. “It’s very important the public understand you can’t get flu from eating pork.” Federal agencies are not referring to the new strain as swine flu, mindful of the popular description of H1N1 that upset markets and producers.

Utah mourns veteran police officer killed in drug raid By Michael Muskal Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — What police officials said began as a routine antidrug raid against a suspect with a relatively minor criminal record ended in gunfire that killed one officer and wounded five others in Ogden, Utah. State and national flags were lowered Thursday to honor the dead and wounded officers as top officials from a regional narcotics task force continued their investigation into the Wednesday night raid that took the

life of Ogden Officer Jared Francom, a seven-year veteran who is survived by his wife and two children. Four officers were hospitalized in serious to critical condition and a fifth was treated and released, police said. The suspect, Matthew David Stewart, 37, had “a limited criminal history” believed to include mostly misdemeanors, Ogden Police Chief Wayne Tarwater said. Stewart was injured and remains hospitalized under guard. His injuries are not con-

sidered life-threatening, but Tarwater did not say whether he was shot. “It’s a very, very sad day for Ogden,” Tarwater said. “The law enforcement community is mourning.” In thanking outside police departments for their support, he said at one point Wednesday night, there were “40 officers from probably seven different agencies” at the hospital after the raid. An internal investigation by police as well as prosecutors in Weber County is under way.

Officials said task force officers, including local and county police and federal agents, were serving what law enforcement calls a “knock and announce” search warrant at a house in Ogden, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City. (With such a warrant, police knock on the door and announce their intentions. If no one answers, police can enter the building if they believe there is probable cause of drug activity.) When officers entered the house, they came under fire, police said.

Students in a technology class use a computer-aided design program on desktop computers at Post Falls High School in Post Falls, Idaho, on Oct. 18, 2011. Teachers in Idaho and elsewhere have been in revolt over policymakers thrusting technology into classrooms and shifting money to unproven teaching methods.

Teachers Continued from A1 It would make them less a lecturer at the front of the room and more of a guide helping students through lessons delivered on computers. This change is part of a broader shift that is creating tension — a tension that is especially visible in Idaho but is playing out across the country. Some teachers, even though they may embrace classroom technology, feel policymakers are thrusting computers into classrooms without their input or proper training. And some say they are opposed to shifting money to online classes and other teaching methods whose benefits remain unproven. “Teachers don’t object to the use of technology,” said Sabrina Laine, vice president of the American Institutes for Research, which has studied the views of the nation’s teachers using grants from organizations like the Gates and Ford foundations. “They object to being given a resource with strings attached and without the needed support to use it effectively to improve student learning.”

Open revolt In Idaho, teachers have been in open revolt. They marched on the capital last spring, when the legislation was under consideration. They complain that lawmakers listened less to them than to heavy lobbying by technology companies, including Intel and Apple. Teacher and parent groups gathered 75,000 verified signatures, more than was needed, to put a referendum on the ballot next November that could overturn the law. “This technology is being thrown on us. It’s being thrown on parents and thrown on kids,” said Rosenbaum, 32, who has written letters to the governor and schools superintendent. In her letters she tells them she is a Republican and a Marine, because, she says, it has become fashionable around the country to dismiss complaining teachers as unionhappy liberals. “I fought for my country,” she said. “Now I’m fighting for my kids.” Gov. C.L. Otter, known as Butch, and Tom Luna, the schools superintendent, who have championed the plan, said teachers had been misled by their union into believing the changes were a step toward replacing them with computers. Luna said the teachers’ anger was intensi-

“Teachers don’t object to the use of technology. They object to being given a resource with strings attached and without the needed support to use it effectively to improve student learning.” — Sabrina Laine, vice president of the American Institutes for Research

fied by other legislation, also passed last spring, that eliminated protections for teachers with seniority and replaced them with a pay-for-performance system. Some teachers have also expressed concern that teaching positions could be eliminated and their raises reduced to help offset the cost of the technology. Luna acknowledged that many teachers in the state were conservative Republicans like him — making Idaho’s politics less black-andwhite than in states like Wisconsin and New Jersey, where union-backed teachers have been at odds with politicians. Luna said he understood that technological change could be scary, particularly because teachers would need to adapt to new ways of working. “The role of the teacher definitely does change in the 21st century. There’s no doubt,” Luna said. “The teacher does become the guide and the coach and the educator in the room helping students to move at their own pace.”

Idaho’s plan Many details about how students would use their laptop or tablet are still being debated. But under the state’s plan, that teacher will not always be in the room. The plan requires high school students to take online courses for two of their 47 graduation credits. Luna said this would allow students to take subjects that were not otherwise available at their schools and familiarize them with learning online, something he said was increasingly common in college. The computer, he added, “becomes the textbook for every class, the research device, the advanced math calculator, the word processor and the portal to a world of information.” Idaho is going beyond what other states have done in decreeing what hardware students and teachers should use and how they should use it. But such requirements are increasingly common at the district level, where most decisions about buying technology for schools are made.

Teachers are resisting, saying that they prefer to employ technology as it suits their own teaching methods and styles. Some feel they are judged on how much they make use of technology, regardless of whether it improves learning. Some teachers in the Los Angeles public schools, for example, complain that the form that supervisors use to evaluate teachers has a check box on whether they use technology, suggesting that they must use it for its own sake.

One teacher’s fight That is a concern shared by Rosenbaum, who teaches at Post Falls High School in this town in northern Idaho, near Coeur d’Alene. Rather than relying on technology, she seeks to engage students with questions — the Socratic method — as she did recently as she was taking her sophomore English class through “The Book Thief,” a novel about a family in Germany that hides a Jewish girl during World War II. Rosenbaum, tall with an easy smile but also a commanding presence, stood in the center of the room with rows of desks on each side, pacing, peppering the students with questions and using each answer to prompt the next. What is an example of foreshadowing in this chapter? Why did the character say that? How would you feel in that situation? Her room mostly lacks high-tech amenities. Homework assignments are handwritten on whiteboards. Students write journal entries in spiral notebooks. On the walls are two American flags and posters paying tribute to the Marines, and on the ceiling a panel painted by a student thanks Rosenbaum for her service. Rosenbaum did use a computer and projector to show a YouTube video of the devastation caused by bombing in World War II. She said that while technology had a role to play, her method of teaching was timeless. “I’m teaching them to think deeply, to think. A computer can’t do that.” She said she was mystified by the requirement that

students take online courses. She is taking some classes online as she works toward her master’s degree and said they left her uninspired and less informed than in-person classes. Rosenbaum said she could not fathom how students would have the discipline to sit in front of their computers and follow along when she had to work each minute to keep them engaged in person.

Other perspectives Some of her views are echoed by other teachers, like Doug StanWiens, 44, a popular teacher of advanced history and economics at Boise High School. He is a heavy technology user, relying on an interactive whiteboard and working with his students to build a website that documents local architecture, a project he says will create a resource for the community. “I firmly believe that technology is a tool for teachers to use,” he said. “It’s time for teachers to get moving on it.” But he also spoke last year on the capital steps in opposition to the state’s program, which he said he saw as a poorly thought-out, one-sizefits-all approach. Half of teachers, he suspects, will not use the new computers. And the online learning requirement seems to him to be a step toward cutting back on in-person teaching and, perhaps eventually, not having students congregate in schools at all. “We can just get rid of sports and band and just give everyone a laptop and call it good,” he said. Stefani Cook, who teaches accounting and business at Rigby High School in southeast Idaho and was the state’s 2011 Teacher of the Year, also teaches a modernized typing course to 32 online students after-hours. A contractor for the state pays her to teach the course and also to help other teachers shape and present their online lessons. Cook is a believer in classroom technology and generally supports the state’s plan. She is on a 38-person task force that is working out the logistics of deploying computers to teachers next fall and, eventually, to 80,000 high schoolers. The group will also organize training for teachers. Cook said she did worry about how teachers would be trained when some already work long hours and take second jobs to make ends meet. “I’m excited about it,” she said. But some teachers, she said, “think it’s just another thing that they’ve got to do.”

Continued from A1 Richards said that connection is critical as the city prepares for a year of job growth initiatives and economic development projects. Also, she said, there is a fear that a younger generation who accesses media through new technologies is being left out. Recent census results found that roughly 20 percent of Redmond’s population is between 20 and 34, meaning most of them fall into the tech-savvy generation between Gen X and the youth currently attending high school. So while newspaper notices, radio spots and a mayoral message included in the utility bill will still occur, Richards believes its just as important to send out information through the new media. “We need to focus on reaching out to everyone,” Richards said. The discussion on the new projects started almost one year ago. At that time, the website was much the same as it is today, but it was clear the city wasn’t moving forward with an online presence. For example, if you searched for “City of Redmond, Oregon” through Google around this time last year, you would have found entries referencing online pharmacies and Viagra from India. It’s a problem that has since been fixed, and while city officials haven’t said that was the main drive for changing direction, it appears it likely was a part of the eventual discussion. Richards laughed when asked if the timing of the two events was serendipitous, saying, “I think (the discussion) started around this time last year for a variety of reasons.” A plan is being developed to determine who will be responsible for updating the multiple platforms. Brandt said a long-term plan includes offering video recordings of all City Council and commission meetings online. Funding for the new initiatives has yet to be discussed. Social media platforms are relatively cheap on the upkeep but do require some staff time. Any price tag on the new website will need to be discussed at a council level through the proposal process. Still, it appears clear where the city is heading. “We’re evolving,” Richards said. “It’s a very rapidly evolving technological world and we want to keep up.” — Reporter: 541-410-9080, ehidle@bendbulletin.com

Continued from A1 “It wasn’t just a space item. It was a human interest story,” Riley said. Insiders estimate space collectibles — the real NASA stuff, not lightsabers from that universe far, far away — account for as much as $10 million in sales annually. That’s expected to grow as artifacts from the space shuttle program — which ended last summer — hit the market. “They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” said Robert Pearlman, founder of the industry website collectSPACE and widely considered a guru on space memorabilia. “And with the end of the shuttle program, people are starting to recognize the (collectible value) of the shuttle program, and it’s reminding them of the early programs, like Apollo. We’re seeing increased interest across the board,” he said. Among the newer trends: trying to collect an item from each of the 133 successful shuttle missions, such as one of the thousands of miniature American flags, coins and other trinkets carried on every launch. “It would be very hard, if not impossible,” said Riley, who estimated just one flag would cost $100, with the price increasing to $500 or more for noteworthy missions such as the first one. It’s just one example of the wide range of space artifacts on sale that include everything from patches and flight suits to pens and engine parts. Adding to their value — and the cachet — is the hazy legality of selling NASA artifacts. Just a few months before the Apollo 13 checklist went to auction, NASA pressed the Justice Department to sue former Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell for trying to sell a 16 mm camera he took to the moon. Mitchell ultimately gave up but told The Palm Beach Post he did so only because fighting the government was too time-consuming and expensive. “Frankly, none of us former Apollo astronauts understand it at all,” Mitchell said.

A crowd gathers to watch space shuttle Atlantis make its final flight at the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Fla., on July 8. The space collectibles market is worth an estimated $10 million in annual sales — and that’s expected to grow as artifacts from the space shuttle program start hitting the market.

fice of Inspector General, who monitor illicit sales of NASA goods, noted in a report that the camera was worth $60,000 to $80,000. But agents there declined interview requests to explain the difference between that sale and the sale of the checklist. It wasn’t the first time NASA has pursued legal action against those trying to sell agency artifacts. Earlier this year, NASA helped Florida authorities arrest a former contractor accused of stealing shuttle tiles and selling them on eBay. It also stopped the sale of employee badges issued to the three Apollo 1 astronauts who died in a launchpad fire in 1967. A former Kennedy Space Center security official had hidden them for 44 years. “An auction house valued the set of badges at $20,000 to $30,000,” noted one NASA report. In all, NASA’s inspector general has investigated 127 cases of property theft, resulting in 36 convictions. The recent retirement of the space shuttle could mean more of these cases.

timated that NASA had about 1.2 million items of shuttle property worth more than $12 billion. But it’s up to the agency to decide what it wants to sell. NASA regulations on the sale of artifacts are much stricter than in the agency’s early years. During the initial Apollo missions, astronauts were given broad leeway to keep

souvenirs from their missions, which led to Lovell’s taking the checklist and Mitchell the camera. Nowadays, astronauts are allowed to keep only the clothes they wore, their personal-hygiene kits and any food they didn’t eat, Pearlman said. Items such as the miniature American flags or commemorative coins that flew aboard the missions were given out as gifts or awards, and many have found their way into the market. But Pearlman said that “NASA has held tight rein on shuttle artifacts.” Still, some NASA items are for sale by the government. NASA turns over aging or obsolete equipment it doesn’t want to the General Services Administration, a federal agency that runs an online auction. This month the GSA was selling communications equipment from Goddard Space Flight Center for $35, although a description did not indicate whether the gear flew in space. Another avenue is eBay. Among the top items: a titanium fuel tank from one of the canceled Apollo missions. The asking price: at least $104,000.

LOS ANGELES — Some might call it a case of swift Oklahoma justice for at least one of two intruders — both reportedly high on prescription drugs — who tried to break into a young widow’s home on New Year’s Eve. Sarah McKinley, 18, calmly used a shotgun to shoot and kill one of the men when he forced his way through the front door of her mobile home and past a sofa she had used to barricade it. Now, the second man is facing first-degree murder charges, and McKinley is being hailed as a hero for doing what she believed she had to do to protect herself and her 3-monthold son, Justin. The two men were reportedly looking for drugs — most likely painkillers — that they believed might have been left behind by McKinley’s husband, who died of lung cancer on Christmas Day. McKinley will not face charges in connection with the case, which is garnering headlines around the world, because there appears to be little confusion about the facts of the case. Much of her ordeal was captured in

Grady County dispatcher Diane Graham asks McKinley whether her doors are locked. Her steely answer: “Yes. I’ve got two guns in my hand.

Al-Maliki raises sectarian tension by condoning Shiite militia in Iraq By Jack Healy and Michael S. Schmidt New York Times News Service

BAGHDAD — It was one of the deadliest insurgent groups in Iraq in recent years, an Iranian-backed militia that bombed U.S. military convoys and bases, assassinated dozens of Iraqi officials and tried to kidnap Americans even as the last soldiers withdrew. But now the Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is welcoming the militant group into Iraq’s political system, a move that could tilt the nation’s center of gravity closer to Iran. The government’s support for the

militia, which only just swore off violence, has opened new sectarian fault lines in Iraq’s political crisis while potentially empowering Iran at a moment of rising military and economic tensions between Tehran and Washington. The militant group, Asaib Ahl al-Haq, broke away from the fierce Shiite militia commanded by the anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, who has strong ties to Tehran. The U.S. military has long maintained that the group, led by a former spokesman for al-Sadr, Qais al-Khazali, was trained and financed by Iran’s elite Quds Force — which Iran denies.

Since the U.S. military withdrawal last month, Iraq has been convulsed with waves of attacks that have raised concerns about its political stability. With that backdrop of violence, the Iraqi government can plausibly claim that its overtures to the group are an earnest attempt to make peace with a powerful armed foe while nudging the country closer to a much-needed national reconciliation. Yet, critics worry that al-Maliki, facing new challenges to his leadership from Sunnis and his fellow Shiites, may be making a cynical and shortsighted play for Asaib’s support.

Dozens killed in bombings An apparently coordinated wave of bombings targeting Shiite Muslims killed at least 78 people in Iraq on Thursday, the second large-scale assault by militants since U.S. forces pulled out last month. The bombings in Baghdad and outside the southern city of Nasiriyah appeared to be the deadliest in Iraq in more than a year. — The Associated Press

W  B Taliban executes 15 Pakistani troops ISLAMABAD — Taliban insurgents executed 15 security soldiers who had been recently kidnapped and dumped their bodies on a hilltop in northwestern Pakistan on Thursday, in retaliation for the killing of a militant commander by government forces, government and military officials said. The soldiers were kidnapped Dec. 23 after dozens of Taliban insurgents overran a fort in one of the restive tribal regions straddling the border with Afghanistan. Officials said they had tried but failed to secure the captives’ release. The executions followed the death of a high-ranking Taliban commander Sunday and came just days after local media reported that several factions of the Taliban had vowed not to attack the Pakistani military. The bullet-ridden bodies of the soldiers, members of the Frontier Constabulary, were spotted by local tribesmen Thursday morning after they were dumped in Mir Ali, a subdistrict in the North Waziristan tribal region.

Syria accused in detainees’ deaths BEIRUT, Lebanon — The Syrian government said Thursday that it released more than 500 prisoners who were not involved in “terrorist” acts. But a human rights group, Avaaz, said its researchers had gathered the names of at least 617 people who died under torture in government installations since the beginning of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad. The group’s estimate of the number of detainees — 37,000 — was more than double that provided by the Local Coordination Committees, another activist group, which said Thursday that it had documented the cases of more than 16,000 detainees. The numbers could not be independently verified.

Sudan feud said to claim 3,000 lives NAIROBI, Kenya — More than 3,000 villagers were massacred in the recent burst of communal violence in South Sudan, local officials said Thursday, with the fledging South Sudanese government seemingly unable to control the violence. The death toll has yet to be confirmed. In the past two weeks, United Nations aircraft tracked 6,000 to 8,000 armed fighters from the Lou Nuer ethnic group as it advanced toward the town of Pibor, home of Lou Nuer’s traditional rival, the Murle. The groups have been locked for generations in a cattle-rustling feud. Years ago, the warriors clashed with spears. Nowadays, they use AK-47s. — From wire reports

Protesters demonstrate outside a courtroom in Cairo on Thursday, calling for the death of ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. Prosecutors have demanded the death penalty for Mubarak on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year’s uprising against his rule.

Death penalty sought for Egypt’s Mubarak By Amro Hassan and Jeffrey Fleishman Los Angeles Times

CAIRO — Prosecutors demanded Thursday that deposed President Hosni Mubarak be sentenced to death by hanging for the violent crackdown nearly one year ago that left more than 800 protesters dead during the stunning popular revolt that inspired rebellions across the region. “The law calls for the death penalty for premeditated murder,” Mustafa Khater, one of a five-member prosecution team, told the federal court during closing arguments in Mubarak’s ongoing trial. “We feel the spirits of the martyrs flying over this hall of sacred justice.” The legal team linked Mubarak to the deaths through a chain of command. Khater said that orders from police officials resulted in the slaying of protesters between Jan. 25 and Feb. 11, the day Mubarak was forced from power. Khater also asked that former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly, who is

being tried with Mubarak, receive the death penalty. No police officer can make a decision “without getting back to their superiors,” Mustafa Suleiman, the chief prosecutor, told Judge Ahmed Refaat in a courtoom at the Police Academy on the outskirts of Cairo. “El-Adley could not have given the order to fire on demonstrators without being instructed to do so by Mubarak.” Mubarak, el-Adly and six Interior Ministry aides face murder related charges. Mubarak’s sons Alaa and Gamal, once his father’s apparent heir, are charged with corruption and abuse of power. The defendants’ closing arguments will be heard when court resumes Jan. 9. Despite the prosecutors’ rousing rhetoric, many Egyptians believe the toppled 83year-old president will escape the death penalty. Scenes of Mubarak, his sons and el-Adly entering court in training suits and sunglasses, and the defendants’ apparent confidence at trial, suggested to many that Mubarak is receiving special

treatment from a police state he controlled for nearly 30 years. The euphoria of Mubarak’s first court appearance in August has given way to cynicism. Hundreds of families of those killed during the revolution have expressed exasperation by long trial delays and embarrassing moments for the prosecution when several key witnesses recanted earlier statements and testified that they knew of no orders from Mubarak for police to shoot protesters. Witnesses came from the top echelons of the Mubarak government, including Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, a Mubarak confidant who now heads the ruling Supreme Council of Armed Forces; former intelligence chief and Vice President Omar Suleiman; and ex-Interior Ministers Mahmoud Wagdi and Mansour Essawi. Prosecutors argued Thursday that testimony by Suleiman and Wagdi proved that Mubarak gave el-Adly the order to use excessive force.

Default notices declined in 2011 Barnes By Tim Doran The Bulletin

Inside

In 2011, for the first time in four years, Deschutes County saw a decline in the total number of initial foreclosure notices filed. From January through December, the Clerk’s Office recorded 2,364 default notices, the legal document that initiates foreclosure proceedings. That’s 37 percent fewer than in 2010, when the county recorded the highest number since at least 2005, according to a tally by The Bulletin. Other Oregon counties also reported declines, at least through November, according to Gorilla Capital, a Eugene company that buys homes sold in foreclosure and tracks

SEEING A FUTURE

IN FLATWARE

• Wall Street private equity firm buys Oneida, enacts plans to boost the profits of the struggling 132-year-old company By Kevin Roose New York Times News Service

ONEIDA, N.Y. — Some local residents, when eating out, instinctively turn their utensils upside-down to look for a telltale sign: the word “Oneida,” stamped into the back of the handle. The “Oneida flip,” as it’s called, is a ritual carried over from an era when Oneida Ltd., the company headquartered here, dominated the global market in flatware, setting tables all over the world

with its stainless steel forks, spoons and knives. Now, the ritual is a painful reminder of the company’s troubles. Once an economic engine of upstate New York and one of the region’s largest employers, Oneida no longer makes flatware in the area. Like so many industrial players across the country, the company has struggled to compete with a flood of low-cost foreign manufacturers. As sales evaporated, factories were shut down. Retail stores were closed. And jobs were

Oregon Subways offer gluten-free After successful tests during the summer of gluten-free products at Subway restaurants in Bend and Portland, the sandwich maker launched gluten-free food options throughout the state Sunday. About 16 million Americans have a sensitivity to gluten, found in traditional grains such as wheat, oats and rye, according to a news release from the Subway regional office in Portland, and the market for gluten-free products is growing. Oregon will be the only state to offer the products at Subways throughout the state. “We go through gluten-free bread a lot,” said Noe Salgado, an employee at the south Bend Subway, “probably 30 rolls a day.”

Barnes & Noble, the nation’s largest book chain, said Thursday that it was considering spinning off its Nook e-reader division in an effort to help the nascent — and expensive — digital business grow. Separating the unit could potentially bring new investors into the Nook business to help shoulder its costs but would also raise questions about Barnes & Noble’s ultimate ability to compete for readers. While the company has made quick work of capturing almost 30 percent of the e-book market in two years, the rise of digital reading has increased the pressure on Barnes & Noble to devise a winning long-term strategy against Amazon, which still dominates in e-book sales.

shipped overseas. But a funny thing happened on the way to Oneida’s demise. Wall Street — an industry that has been accused of destroying jobs and stripping businesses for parts — decided the company had long-term potential. In November, Monomoy Capital Partners, a private equity firm, bought Oneida from a group of hedge funds. The new owner wants to expand, rather than decimate, its operations. It is a simple but lofty goal for a company that has been slowly recovering since its bankruptcy in 2006. See Oneida / B2

DETROIT — General Motors is advising Volt owners to return their electric cars to dealers for repairs that will lower the risk of battery fires. The company hopes that the repairs, which will add steel to the plates protecting the batteries, will ease worries about the car’s safety. Three Volt batteries caught fire after government crash tests last year, prompting a federal investigation and sending GM engineers scrambling to find a fix. The free repairs, announced Thursday, will fix 8,000 Volts on U.S. roads and another 4,400 still for sale. See Volt / B5

Top 1 percent of mobile users use half of world’s bandwidth By Kevin J. O’Brien

Subway riders on the Q train in New York use their smartphones.

New York Times News Service

The world’s congested mobile airwaves are being divided in a lopsided manner, with 1 percent of consumers generating half of all traffic, according to a British study. The top 10 percent of users, meanwhile, are consuming 90 percent of wireless bandwidth. Arieso, a company in England that advises mobile operators in Europe, the United States and Africa, documented the statistical gap when it tracked 1.1 million customers of a European mobile operator during a 24-hour period in November. The gap between extreme users and the rest of the population is widening, ac-

cording to Arieso. In 2009, the top 3 percent of heavy users generated 40 percent of network traffic. Now, Arieso said, these users pump out 70 percent of the traffic. Michael Flanagan, the chief technology officer at Arieso, said the study did not produce a more precise profile of extreme users.

But the group, he said, was probably diverse, with a mix of business users gaining access to the Internet over a 3G network while traveling, and individuals with generous or unlimited mobile data packages watching videos, the main cause of the excess traffic. See Bandwidth / B5

MF Global inquiry turns to its primary regulator By Ben Protess and Azam Ahmed New York Times News Service

Federal authorities investigating the collapse of MF Global have expanded their inquiry to include the actions of the CME Group, the operator of the main exchange where the commodities brokerage firm conducted business, according to people briefed on the matter. CME, which also served as MF Global’s primary regulator, has come under heavy criticism after $1.2 billion in customer money disappeared from MF Global. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the government agency leading the case, is now scrutinizing CME’s conduct in the days before MF Global filed for bankruptcy Oct. 31. In particular, the commission is reviewing whether CME’s efforts to verify the safety of customer funds were sufficient, the people said. CME, for its part, has said

Continued from B1 “This is a meaningful investment for us,� said Daniel Collin, the Monomoy partner who led the deal to acquire Oneida. “After years of being undercapitalized, Oneida finally has a partner willing to invest in its future.� How a 132-year-old flatware company ended up in the hands of a Manhattan private equity firm illustrates the woes of U.S. manufacturing — and possibly, a way to improve its fortunes. Last year, buyout shops bought 361 industrial companies, with many deals under $150 million, like the Oneida deal, according to Preqin, a research firm. Monomoy, which has just 20 employees and manages a relatively small $700 million in assets, has specialized in acquiring small- to medium-size businesses that might seem antiquated to other buyout firms. Among the companies in its portfolio are Steel Parts Manufacturing, which produces clutch plates used in automatic transmission cars, and Awrey Bakeries, a 102-year-old company that makes frozen brownies, cakes and other desserts. “A lot of times, these boring, stodgy businesses can generate consistent cash flow, and that’s important to a private equity buyer,� said Eric Hollowaty, an equity research analyst with Stephens Inc. “I don’t think many private equity firms are going to be motivated by saving an age-old brand if they don’t think they can make a handsome return.�

Starting in the 1990s, the company began to feel the heat of foreign competitors, which could produce utensils for a fraction of the price of U.S. manufacturers. The attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, further hurt business, after the metal forks and knives Oneida supplied to airlines were banned on flights. As its sales fell, Oneida hemorrhaged money — more than $157 million between January 2003 and October 2005 — and was forced to stop making flatware and close several facilities in Oneida and the surrounding cities, where the company had employed about 2,500 people at its peak. By 2006, the situation at the company, which in better times had been well-off enough to sponsor Little League teams, the golf course and other local activities, had become so dire that filing for Chapter 11

that MF Global may have intentionally produced inaccurate documents related to customer accounts. As the owner of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade and the New York Mercantile Exchange, the CME Group is a major force in commodities and futures. It is the dominant U.S. exchange operator for billions of dollars in trades, affecting food prices and Wall Street profits. A censure of any kind would be a powerful, if merely symbolic, critique of the behemoth. If the CFTC finds that CME did not meet the standards of so-called self-regulatory organizations, it could fine or sanction the exchange. The commission could also revoke CME’s status as a self-regulator, although that is unlikely. Experts say it is rare for the government to hand down any manner of sanction against a self-regulatory body. CME has not been accused of any wrongdoing, and the

was the only option. “Oneida tried to hang on to its manufacturing facilities as long as it could,� said James Joseph, Oneida’s outgoing chief executive, who is stepping down this year as part of the Monomoy transition. “From a pure business standpoint, you could argue we hung on too long.� A few months later, Oneida exited from bankruptcy, under the control of a group of hedge funds. Led by Monarch Alternative Capital, the firms moved swiftly — if painfully — to make the company profitable. They moved a distribution center to Savannah, Ga., to save on freight costs, closed stores and struck an agreement that allowed Robinson Home Products to distribute flatware and dinnerware under Oneida’s name. The hedge funds even debated moving Oneida’s headquarters closer to New York City to give it a better shot at attracting top talent, but eventually decided against it, according to several people involved in the discussions. Those decisions stabilized Oneida. In five years, the firms reduced the company’s debt load from approximately $150 million, to around $60 million. The company now turns a small annual profit of around $15 million before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, according to several people with knowledge of the company’s finances who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the numbers are private. Its North American flatware business gained 3 percentage points of market share last year, according to Joseph, and still has a valuable brand name.

New ownership With the finances on the upswing, Monomoy saw an opportunity in Oneida. The private equity firm owns Anchor Hocking, a glassware maker, and Monomoy figured it could use its foothold in the food service industry to bolster Oneida’s sales to restaurants and hotels. In November,

review of its actions may not produce any findings. “Given the issues involved, we welcome and expect the CFTC’s investigation as a natural part of this process,� a spokeswoman for the CME Group said in a statement. “We are confident the CFTC’s review will determine we did everything right within our regulatory power. The system did not fail; the firm broke the law by misusing customer funds.� Regulators, chastened that the debacle occurred on their watch, are searching for the money while also trying to prevent the next MF Global from happening. As part of that effort, the CFTC is close to finishing “limited reviews� of customer accounts at the 14 largest futures brokers. The results of these cursory reviews, which include divisions at Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase, are expected to be released in the next few weeks, according to one of the people briefed on the matter.

Monomoy paid around $100 million for Oneida, according to several people with knowledge of the deal terms, which were not disclosed. Several weeks after the deal with Monomoy was announced, Joseph took to the auditorium stage in Oneida’s headquarters to reassure his employees that they were in good hands. Flanked by Collin and his Monomoy team, Joseph announced that he was stepping down and taking a job at nearby Le Moyne College, although he would keep a seat on the company’s board and remain involved in certain company projects. According to Joseph, Monomoy is not a “strip and flip� firm that will shrink Oneida down to its smallest possible size for a quick, profitable sale. “They’re not Gordon Gekko,� he said of the firm. “It’s almost like they got together and said, ‘There’s a different way to do this.’ � Monomoy has already started its efforts to boost Oneida’s bottom line. It recently sent two Oneida executives to its management boot camp, a weeklong intensive course that was inspired by Toyota’s “lean manufacturing� approach. It plans to name a new chief executive shortly, and has plans to campaign for business in South Korea and Brazil. Collin, a fast-talking Wall Street deal-maker who uses “leverage� as a verb, is both optimistic and reasonable about Oneida’s expectations. While reopening the local plant in Sherrill is a long shot, he hopes to strengthen Oneida so that it can be sold or taken public again within five years. “Are they going to be creating 5,000 manufacturing jobs in the U.S.? Probably not,� he said. “But can they grow and generate profits? Sure.�

An electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV sits amid rubble in tsunami-ravaged Japan. Despite derailments caused by natural disasters, most automakers ended 2011 unscathed, if not stronger than before. Sales in the United States grew 10 percent compared with 2010.

2011’s solid gains expected to carry on in years ahead By Lawrence Ulrich New York Times News Service

Derailed by a crushing earthquake and tsunami in March, Japanese carmakers will no doubt be glad to put 2011 behind them. Yet most other auto companies managed to shrug off the year’s economic aftershocks, though the effects of supplier outages and the summer’s floods in Thailand were felt worldwide. Still, with about 12.8 million vehicles sold, U.S. automakers had their best year since 2008 — although still well short of the 16 million annual sales level enjoyed before the recession. Sales rose 8.7 percent in December, and increased 10 percent for all of 2011 compared with the previous year. As a market recovery takes hold, the industry should be feeling like a million for years to come: LMC, which acquired the auto forecasting division of J.D. Power & Associates in November, estimates a steady rise to 13.8 million sales in 2012, 15.4 million in 2013 and 16.2 million in 2014. That would finally restore U.S. sales to prerecession normalcy, if not to the 17.4 million peak of 2000. Significantly, the Detroit automakers — leaner and less reliant on boom-or-bust truck sales — are now reaping healthy profits, even with the industry’s volume roughly 4 million cars lower than it was in more prosperous times. Automakers finished 2011 on the upswing, with strong December sales in the United States. For Chrysler, December was the best month in nearly three years, as passenger-car deliveries more than doubled and total sales rose 37 percent. Chrysler’s sales for all of 2011 were up 26 percent. General Motors reported a 5 percent increase in December and a 13 percent gain for the year. At the Ford Motor Co., sales were up 10 percent in December and 11 percent for the year. Sales by Ford’s namesake brand totaled 2.06 million, the most by any automotive brand since 2007.

GM’s revival At its riverfront headquarters in Detroit, General Motors may be measuring itself for the heavyweight belt. With an estimated 8.4 million in global vehicle sales, including its Chinese partner, SAIC-GM-Wuling, the company is poised to retake the title of world’s largest-volume automaker from Toyota. That battered Japanese company, LMC Automotive projects, may slip as low as fourth place, behind Volkswagen and Renault-Nissan. Despite GM’s billions in

Booming sales for ultraluxury models If you want to stir things up at an Occupy Wall Street encampment, mention that Bentleys and Rolls-Royces are selling like truffle-infused hotcakes. But executives at those storied British brands say their success is not just a 1 percent solution; brisk sales of ultraluxury models, you see, bode well for the masses that drive Chevys. The recession may have sidelined some buyers in the fundmanager class, but Bentley’s sales around the world zoomed roughly 30 percent in 2011. And over at Rolls-Royce, the new Ghost — a mere $250,000, but hardly downscale — paced the brand to a global sales record, said David Archibald, president of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America. That total, some 3,500 cars, follows a record 2,711 sales in 2010. The first decade of the millennium brought roughly a tenfold explosion in popularity for Bentley and Rolls, which shared the British luxury throne before being conquered, separated and modernized by German automakers. It may have been a blow to national pride, but Bentley and Rolls, backed by the deep pockets of Volkswagen and BMW respectively, at last had the resources to develop new models that reached showrooms as the sales drought abated. Christophe Georges, Bentley’s North American president, said that rising luxury-car sales showed that consumers were regaining faith in the economy. That connection is stronger for cars than for other luxury goods because they are such visible symbols of wealth, he said. “If you collect art, no one sees it outside your home,” Georges said. “But when people are losing jobs, you don’t want to show off a new Bentley. So when luxury cars move up, it’s a real expression of confidence.” — New York Times News Service

profits and a 14 percent sales jump in the U.S., there were sore spots. With about 7,000 sales in its inaugural year, the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid fell short of GM’s confident projection of 10,000. Though the Volt represents the tiniest green drop of GM’s global sales — about one of every 1,200 cars — the press doggedly pursued a clumsy, all-or-nothing linkage, casting the innovative hybrid as a referendum on GM’s revival. It didn’t help that in June a Volt caught fire in Wisconsin, weeks after undergoing federal crash tests. GM moved quickly to limit the fallout, offering to buy back Volts from customers concerned about the safety of its lithium-ion battery pack. Because lithiumion chemistry pulses through all modern plug-in hybrids and electric cars, automakers will be carefully monitoring the federal investigation of the Volt’s travails. On that electric frontier, private companies, in partnership with automakers and public agencies, began a historic effort to build a national network of EV charging stations. The program, supported by more than $130 million in federal stimulus money and Energy Department grants, provides free home chargers for thousands of EV buyers, along with public and workplace charging sites.

Ford and Chrysler Among the big boys, Ford, after basking in bailout-free glory in 2010, trailed the reconstituted GM and Chrys-

ler. Ford’s MyTouch, a glitchprone, hard-to-decipher infotainment system, earned scorn from buyers and Consumer Reports. Customers also gave low marks to Ford’s obtrusive automated transmission, which marred a solid redesign of the Focus compact. Chrysler’s honeymoon with its new owner, Fiat, included a 26 percent sales jump from the gutter levels of 2010. And the company’s defiantly proDetroit, Eminem-scored Super Bowl commercial put a lump in the throat of anyone with a connection to Eight Mile Road, the defining boundary between the tough city and the softer suburbs. Fiat’s celebrity commercials fared less well. To promote its newly immigrated 500 minicar, the Italian brand hired Jennifer Lopez, who set off a minor controversy when it turned out her sentimental Bronx “homecoming” had placed a J. Lo body double behind the 500’s wheel. Tepid sales of the car also played a role in the removal of Laura Soave from her position as head of the brand in North America.

German brands Volkswagen offered its own coming-to-America tale, opening a $1 billion plant in Tennessee with the help of $570 million in tax breaks, which easily beat out competing come-ons from Alabama and Michigan. The Passat plant helped VW to post a 27 percent sales gain. While the VW Group aims for an ambitious 1 million combined sales for VW and Audi by 2018, more than double

current levels, a pair of relative upstarts is already there. Hyundai and its sister company, Kia, smashed the million mark for the first time, on pace for about 1.2 million combined sales. John Krafcik, Hyundai’s American chief, again wrote his name atop a historically short list: the executive who could do no wrong. German luxury brands continued their inexorable rise, with Mercedes-Benz likely to edge BMW for the luxury sales crown at roughly 254,000 units. Lexus decisively lost its luxury title, tumbling to barely 190,000 sales. A further clue that the wellto-do were spending in 2011 came in August, when a record price for a car sold at auction was set: $16.4 million for a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa prototype.

Failures and surprises As in 2010, when a sour economy culled GM’s Pontiac and Ford’s Mercury from the herd, weak brands foundered. Just before Christmas, Saab filed for liquidation, eliminating more than 3,000 jobs in Sweden and ending a quixotic rescue attempt by Victor Muller. As the leader and designer of Spyker, the tiny Dutch sports-car maker that swallowed Saab whole, Muller’s refreshing spirit had even cynical industry watchers rooting for a comeback. But it was not to be. Saab could no longer compete in a global industry that requires massive scale. Brand loyalists will miss its signature style and oddities like an ignition switch placed between the seats. On the technical front, downsized, fuel-sipping engines, often with a helpful boost from turbochargers or superchargers, continued to sweep the world. BMW and Mercedes began to offer their first 4-cylinder engines here in several years. Even Ford seemed surprised by buyer enthusiasm for its F-150 pickup equipped with a mere 6-cylinder. Yet in an apparent contradiction, the horsepower wars continued to rage. No sooner had Chevrolet rolled out its 580-horsepower 2012 Camaro ZL1 than Ford promised a 650-horsepower, 200-mph slap with the 2013 Shelby GT500 Mustang. Nissan suffered a black eye on the design front. Sure, the company’s plants avoided the worst of the tsunami’s wrath and its sales rose 13 percent, but it was bashed for its Murano CrossCabriolet. This eyegouging hodgepodge of crossover and convertible drew a critical pummeling unknown since Pontiac released the Aztek. Salivating auto critics enjoyed an early holiday feast.

DALLAS — For some reason, gear ratios don’t interest most women. But as women continue to reshape the male-dominated auto industry, they do want to know about the space in a car’s interior, its exterior styling and its fuel economy and safety ratings, Tara Weingarten says. “Where men see eye candy in a hot car, women wonder, ‘How will my life be different if I choose that car?’ ” said Weingarten, 49, a founder of Vroomgirls.com, one of the newest of a small but expanding number of automobile websites aimed at women. “I want to leave out the jargon and humanize cars,” said Weingarten, a native Californian and longtime enthusiast who was Newsweek’s auto reviewer for 15 years. “I want it to be Motor Trend edited by Martha Stewart.” Her weeks-old site joins Carladynews.com on the Web, a Dallas-based site aimed at women that has been up for “six or seven years,” said publisher Madelyn Miller. Miller, 64, figures that about a dozen women-oriented car sites compete for readers in the U.S., compared with thousands of mainstream and enthusiast auto websites. “Men don’t even think about some of the things that matter to women — like trunk space and interior layout and space for your purse,” said Miller, whose site offers vehicle reviews and features.

Big market potential While few, these specialized car sites can pack some real punch. Women influence nearly 70 percent of new-car purchase decisions and make about 40 percent of the purchases, industry officials say. And automakers and autorelated companies scour the Web for new women-oriented sites, seeking effective alternative ways to advertise their products. “Potentially, a new site like (Vroomgirls) has 100 percent of the attention of the visitors she gets — as opposed to maybe 1 percent of the visitors to some general site,” said Scott Monty, head of social media at Ford Motor Co. “Consumers want to know about what matters to them, and they want to know it now.” Ford devotes about a quar-

ter of its marketing budget to digital and social media, Monty said. Although he declined to say how much the total budget typically is, some outside Ford estimate that it could be more than $1 billion a year. Neville Manohar, head of digital marketing at Chrysler Group LLC, said he was already aware of Vroomgirls. “It’s a dynamic environment that is growing and changing,” Manohar said of the Web in general. “One study found that consumers used 18 different sources of information before making a car purchase, which is more than most do with heart surgery.”

Quality and style Web neophyte Weingarten and her business partner, Marjory Hawkins of Austin, hope to draw a sizable share of those clicks with quality and style. In its first five weeks, the site attracted 35,000 page views, which Weingarten considers “pretty good.” She was recently on NBC’s “Today” show to discuss Vroomgirls, as well as shows in Phoenix, Dallas, Houston and Miami. Recent content included an essay by actress Jamie Lee Curtis on her love of driving in her native Los Angeles; reviews of the Audi A6, Ford Explorer and Hyundai Sonata turbo; and road stories on Texas’ historic dance halls and driving Route 66. “I’m not a girly-girl — I’m a journalist,” said Weingarten, who was also a news reporter at Time and worked at the Dallas Times Herald in the 1980s, where she met her husband. “But I recognize what women like, and I want to give them a product with honest information delivered in an entertaining, stylish way.” Weingarten, who dipped deeply into savings to initially fund Vroomgirls, said neither she nor Hawkins plans to take a salary from the business for the next year. That will allow them to pay their small staff and about a dozen freelancers who regularly contribute to the site. In addition, the site has secured as sponsors Toyota, Ferrari and Lamborghini, among others, and has a relationship with TrueCar.com, which drives its retail auto component for readers interested in a new vehicle.

Tata hopes to rid Nano of its stigma By Siddharth Philip and David Merritt Bloomberg News

Ratan Tata, the chairman of Tata Motors who conceived the Nano as the world’s cheapest car, said Thursday that the automaker is working on the vehicle’s upgrades to undo the “stigma” attached to the hatchback that pushed down sales. “We will see a resurrection of this product as we move forward,” Tata told journalists in New Delhi Thursday. “We will resolve the problems. The vehicle will be more robust.” Tata said the company wasn’t “adequately ready” with advertising campaigns and a dealer network when it started sales of the car in 2009. The Nano, developed as an upgrade option for millions of Indian motorcycle owners, has lagged behind pricier rivals because of safety concerns caused by some cars catching fire and as rising interest rates damped overall auto demand.

A challenge to Tata’s title LOS ANGELES — In the race to make the world’s cheapest car, the Indian company Tata Motors might soon lose its No. 1 status — from a manufacturer in its own country. Motorbike manufacturer Bajaj Auto Ltd. is coming out with a compact vehicle, the RE60 hatchback. Although the company didn’t specify a price when it unveiled the vehicle Tuesday, chances are that it’ll be cheap. Commercial production could start in the next few months, Bajaj said. The vehicle was dreamed up by the manufacturer in conjunction with Renault and Nissan Motor Co. as a potential competitor to Tata’s Nano, which often costs less than $3,000 in India. — Los Angeles Times

Continued from B1 Banks have been clearing out bad mortgage loans, he said. As an example of what remains, Gorilla picked up a 720-square-foot cabin on 40 acres southeast of Chiloquin on Thursday for $26,800, Helmick said. The loan on the foreclosed property: $165,948. This was “clearly not a person’s main residence,” he said. Nationwide, foreclosure proceedings dropped about 3 percent in November, the latest figures available, according to RealtyTrac, the real estate website. The company tracks scheduled auctions and bank repossessions, along with default notice filings, according to the site. Arizona, California and Massachusetts, however, recorded increases in November, according to the company’s Dec. 14 market report, and foreclosure auctions nationwide reached a nine-month high in November. Lenders generally file a notice of default after a borrower is 90 days late on his or her mortgage. Not all notices of default end up in foreclosure. In 2006, Deschutes County recorded a total of 221 default notices. But as the mortgage and real estate markets imploded, filings began to soar, more than doubling in 2007 over the previous year and increasing more than threefold in 2008 over 2007. Last year, default notice filings dropped in 11 out of 12 months, compared with 2010. The exception came in April, when 581 notices were filed, a nearly 83 percent increase over April 2010 and the single highest monthly total since at least January 2005, according to The Bulletin’s tally. Recontrust Co., a subsidiary of Bank of America, filed more than 80 percent of the April notices. A month earlier, however, filings of rescissions of notices of default increased 218 percent over the number filed in March 2010. A rescission, generally, withdraws the default notice and reinstates the obligations that existed before it was issued, according to some of the documents filed. Rescissions also contain language stating that the conditions that led to the default remain and the rescission does not take away the right to sell the property. Last year, Deschutes County recorded 1,790 rescissions, a 32 percent increase over the number filed in 2010.

Continued from B1 The Nook has been a crucial component of that strategy. And while it has sold well and drawn critical praise, Barnes & Noble has acknowledged that the Nook has not been profitable, leaving investors anxious about the future costs tied to it, with the need to develop new software and hardware and to advertise the products. By one analyst’s estimate, Barnes & Noble spends $200 million to $250 million annually on its Nook business. “The Nook business has been a growth business for Barnes & Noble,” said Sarah Rotman Epps, a senior analyst with Forrester Research. “But there’s no doubt that continued growth and international expansion will take sustained investment that Barnes & Noble shareholders will not have the patience for.” Investors were unnerved Thursday when Barnes & Noble revised its earnings forecast downward for 2012, saying it expected losses of $1.10 to $1.40 a share. The company’s shares tumbled 17 percent in trading, closing

Bandwidth Continued from B1 “Some people may draw the parallel to Occupy Wall Street, and I’ve already heard comments about ‘Occupy the Downlink,’ ” Flanagan said. “But the situations are very different, and the mobile situation doesn’t break down along socioeconomic lines.” The Arieso survey found that 64 percent of extreme users were using a laptop, a third were using a smartphone and 3 percent had an iPad. The imbalance in mobile phone consumption is another example of a relatively small group of individuals dominating the consumption of a particular resource. The United States, with less than 5 percent of the world’s population, consumes about 23 percent of the world’s daily oil production, according to U.S. government figures. Japan, Germany and Italy, whose populations together make up less than 4 percent of the world’s total, accounted for 31 percent of global natural gas imports in 2010, according to the International Energy Agency.

at $11.24. Barnes & Noble’s stock has fallen 30 percent in the past 12 months. The company attributed the revision primarily to lower-than-expected sales of its black-andwhite Nook devices, acknowledging that it had ordered too many of them. Still, the company forecasts a bright future for the Nook, and it has absorbed many quarterly losses while investing heavily in the Nook. Barnes & Noble said it was considering reporting Nookrelated sales as a separate business segment and added that it was in talks with potential partners to expand the Nook’s presence overseas, a vastly untapped opportunity for book publishers and retailers. “We see substantial value in what we’ve built with our Nook business in only two years, and we believe it’s the right time to investigate our options to unlock that value,” William Lynch Jr., Barnes & Noble’s chief executive, said in a statement. Sales of Nook devices for the nine-week holiday period ending Dec. 31 were up 70 percent over the same period a year earlier, Barnes & Noble

Smartphone adoption The more powerful phones are rapidly replacing the simpler, less voracious devices in many countries, raising traffic levels and pressure on operators to keep pace. In countries like Sweden and Finland, smartphones now account for more than half of all mobile phones, Zarandy said. About 35 percent of Finns also use mobile laptop modems and dongles, or modems in a USB stick; one operator, Elisa, offers unlimited data plans for as little as 5 euros, or $6.40, a month.

Volt Continued from B1 The cars are covered by a “customer service campaign” run by GM, which is similar to a safety recall but allows the carmaker to avoid the bad publicity and federal monitoring that come with a recall. GM and federal safety officials believe last year’s fires were caused by coolant leaking from damaged plastic casing around the batteries after side-impact collisions. That coolant caused an electrical short, which sparked battery fires seven days to three weeks after the crashes. GM has a huge incentive to fix the problem and protect the Volt’s image. Although the car isn’t a big seller — it’s fallen short of sales goals — it burnishes GM’s image as a greener, more innovative carmaker. The safety stumble could make it even harder for the Chevrolet Volt to compete with rival electric cars such as the Nissan Leaf. To contain the bad publicity after the fires, GM last year offered to buy back Volts from

work, imposing volume limits on customers or installing miniature base stations at congestion points. Ericsson expects the volume of global mobile data to rise tenfold by 2011 to 2016. The rate is likely to accelerate as more consumers integrate the mobile Web into their daily lives. Last year, for example, 40 percent of smartphone owners in an Ericsson survey used their devices to gain access to mobile broadband connections even before getting out of bed. The heaviest users of mobile data, according to Ericsson, watched videos 40 percent of the time, surfed the Web an additional 20 percent, and used up the rest of their online time in emails, social networking, file sharing and software downloads.

Technological advances Advances in smartphones and applications technology are also driving up use. Arieso researchers, in their latest survey, found that users of Apple’s iPhone 4S downloaded 276 percent more data from an operator’s network than did people with the Ap-

As a result, Finns consume on average 1 gigabyte of wireless data a month over an operator’s network, almost 10 times the European average. As more consumers buy smartphones, the level of mobile data consumption and congestion will rise in other countries. “This of course is bad news for operators because it means that more traffic is coming and they need to invest to stay ahead of the curve,” Zarandy said. Flanagan at Arieso said one European operator, which he declined to identify, last year installed 250 miniature base stations, called microcells, to handle the traffic of extreme users. The operator, he said, did not wish to publicize the work because it did not want to draw attention to the strains that its network was experiencing. Patrik Cerwall, the head of strategic marketing and intelligence at Ericsson, which is based in Stockholm, said most operators were beginning to look for ways to make their networks more efficient, whether by dumping data quickly into a fixed-line net-

Pal Zarandy, an analyst at Rewheel, a research firm in Helsinki that advises operators on data packages and pricing strategies, said the disparity in bandwidth use was not surprising because most mobile phone users globally used a 2G telephone for calls and texts only. Just 13.2 percent of the world’s 6.1 billion cellphones are smartphones, according to Ericsson, the leading maker of mobile network equipment, but the rate exceeds 30 percent in larger markets like the U.S., Germany and Britain.

said Thursday, while all Nookrelated sales, including devices, accessories and digital content, were up 43 percent. Brick-and-mortar sales rose just 2.5 percent. In an interview Thursday, Lynch said he believed that the Nook business was undervalued by the current investor base. “Increasingly there’s been a drumbeat from investors in the market to look at options relating to it,” Lynch said, adding that there was also “increased appetite” from the company’s board to explore ways to increase the Nook unit’s value. There is no timeline for the move, and Lynch said he did not want to speculate on its outcome. Barnes & Noble has chipped away at Amazon’s market share for e-books in the past two years at a pace that has surprised publishers, who have been pleased by the entry of another major player in the e-book market. Barnes & Noble introduced its first Nook, a simple blackand-white e-reader priced at $259, in October 2009. In November, the company announced its latest color device, the Nook Tablet, for $249.

worried owners. Still, no owners have reported fires after crashes. Starting in February, dealers will add steel to a plate that protects the Volt battery, spreading the force of a crash over a larger area, says Mary Barra, GM’s product development chief. Tests by the GM and the government have shown that the repairs prevent battery damage and coolant leaks. “We have made the Volt even safer,” says Mark Reuss, GM’s North American president. GM has done crash tests on four reinforced Volts and found that the fix worked. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration — the federal safety agency — has also crashed a Volt with the added steel. “The preliminary results of the crash test indicate the remedy proposed by General Motors today should address the issue,” the agency says. It will monitor the crashed car for another week as it continues its investigation. News of the fix helped GM stock. Shares rose $1.02, or nearly 5 percent, to close at $22.17.

ple 3G, which has been on the market since June 2008. Part of the reason for the increase in download volumes may be Apple’s Siri voice feature on the iPhone 4S, Flanagan said. Siri allows consumers to dictate to the phone and enter more text and data into the network in an easier way. The growth of cloud computing-based applications like iTunes and other cloud services, which use the mobile network to connect consumers with remote computers, may also be a factor, he said. In uploaded data volumes and the total number of calls to the network, two Google Android handsets made by HTC, the Taiwanese manufacturer, topped the list. People using the HTC Desire S uploaded 323 percent more data than those with the iPhone 3G, and those with an HTC Google Nexus One phone made 221 percent more calls to the network. Calls to the network include the voice and data calls initiated by the user, as well as the automatic communication between the device and the network to update its applications or transmit its location.

U.S. housing market expected to improve only slightly in 2012 By Kathleen Lynn The Record (Hackensack N.J.)

HACKENSACK, N.J. — The housing market — staggering under a slow economy and still paying for the excesses of the boom years — may start to stir to life in 2012. But experts warn that a real rebound is still several years away. “Our outlook is that things (in 2012) will be a little bit better than 2011,” said Patrick Newport, an economist with IHS Global Insight. “But that���s not saying much.” Blame the economy, with unemployment topping 8 percent. If economic and job growth pick up in 2012, housing is likely to get a boost. But that’s a big “if.” IHS expects the U.S. economy to grow at an anemic 1.6 percent — or possibly even tip into recession as a result of Europe’s debt problems. “Our view is that the economy isn’t going to grow fast enough to bring down the unemployment rate,” said Newport. “That’s one of the reasons that it will take the housing market another 1½ to two years to get back on track and start growing again.” “People are not going to come out and make the most expensive purchase of their lives if there’s any uncertainty about their jobs,” said Robert Denk, an economist with the National Association of Home Builders, who predicts that home construction won’t return to normal levels until 2015. And the housing market is still suffering a hangover from the wild times of 2004 and 2005, when questionable mortgage practices inflated prices to unsustainable levels, and allowed unqualified buyers to get into homes they couldn’t afford. Here’s a closer look at what to expect in 2012:

Prices Newport expects prices nationwide to slide another 5

or 10 percent in 2012, as the foreclosure pipeline gets moving again, dumping distressed properties on the market. Foreclosed properties tend to sell at a discount of 20 to 30 percent, according to several studies. Lower prices have left many homeowners (especially those who paid high prices at the market peak) owing more on their homes than the properties are worth. Of course, the lower prices have also made it easier for buyers to afford homes. And once the foreclosure bottleneck is cleared, many lowpriced properties will come onto the market, said Patrick O’Keefe, an economist with J.H. Cohn in Roseland, N.J. “There will be a lot of opportunities for purchasers to get steeply discounted properties,” he said. He predicted prices will stabilize by the end of 2012. Many buyers have held back because they think home prices will keep dropping. “Most people don’t want to

buy in a market where prices are falling, because you lose your equity right off the bat,” Newport said.

Interest rates Mortgage rates, which have been near record lows for several years, will remain below 5 percent, according to most forecasts. Along with lower home prices, the rock-bottom rates have made buying a home much more affordable. But many potential buyers find they can’t qualify for the lowest rates unless their credit is flawless.

Construction The multifamily market — especially for rentals — is the only area where construction has started to pick up again. AvalonBay Communities Inc., a northern Virginia-based rental company, is building new apartments in three New Jersey locations. “People are renting for a variety of reasons, including insecurity about their jobs,” said

Ron Ladell, a vice president with AvalonBay. As the homeownership rate has dropped from a record 69.2 percent in 2004 to 66.3 percent in the third quarter of 2011, millions of people have turned to renting, he pointed out. For the most part, new home construction has been bumping along at the lowest levels since World War II. “We’re expecting some recovery in 2012, and a little more momentum in 2013,” Denk said. Even so, in 2012, builders are expected to construct only about 40 percent of what’s needed just to keep up with population growth. David Stiff, an economist with Fiserv, said builders are reluctant to move forward with new projects because they would have to compete with low-priced foreclosures. And banks will remain reluctant to lend to builders “until they’re sure the housing market has started to stabilize,” he said.

Fed report offers housing insights WASHINGTON — A report from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke calls the weakness in the housing market a “significant barrier” to U.S. economic health and said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac might have to bear greater losses to stoke a broader recovery. The study, delivered Thursday to leaders of the Senate Banking and House Financial Services committees, noted “tension” between aiding the economy and minimizing losses of the failed governmentsponsored enterprises, which depend on taxpayer aid for survival. “Some actions that cause greater losses to be sustained by the GSEs in the near term might be in the interest of taxpayers to pursue if those actions result in a quicker and more vigorous economic recovery,” according to the study. That tension is a theme throughout the 26-page report. The study examined ways to clear the glut of foreclosed properties, protect homeowners from default, and help more borrowers take advantage of record-low mortgage rates. Doing nothing would chill an already-tepid expansion, according to the report. A policy of no action will lengthen the housing slump, generate higher costs to the economy, push home prices lower and prolong “downward pressure on the wealth of current homeowners and the resultant drag on the economy at large,” the paper found. The study was meant to provide a framework for “thinking about certain issues and trade-offs,” Bernanke said in a letter accompanying the report. “Restoring the health of the housing market is a necessary part of a broader strategy for economic recovery.” — Bloomberg News

PM urges Greeks to accept salary cuts McClatchy-Tribune News Service ATHENS, Greece — Prime Minister Lucas Papademos on Thursday urged Greeks to accept more salary cuts as the only way to secure international financing and avoid bankruptcy and a possible exit from the eurozone. “We have to accept a short-term reduction in our income. It is essential for our competitiveness,” Papademos told labor union and business leaders, according to a statement by his office. “You need to accept limited sacrifices to avert a catastrophic outcome. To give up a little in order not to lose a lot.” Greece will later this month discuss a “credible economic plan” for the next three years with the European Union, International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank, known as the troika. “Without the agreement with the troika and the consequent funding, Greece in March faces an immediate danger of disorderly default,” Papademos said. Papademos, who took office in November, faces the challenge of implementing tough austerity measures and economic reforms demanded by the troika in exchange for bailout funds. He met with his government on Thursday to discuss new austerity measures and plans to fight tax evasion.

LOCAL BRIEFING 3 arrested in drug investigation Three people contacted Thursday in the course of an ongoing methamphetamine investigation were arrested, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said. Thursday’s actions began with a traffic stop at the Izzy’s Restaurant in Redmond. Police contacted Adam Davenport, 29, and Christina Gerow, 27, both of Bend, and found them in possession of 23 grams of methamphetamine. Both were arrested on charges of possession, manufacture and delivery of controlled substances. Detectives obtained a warrant to search Davenport and Gerow’s home in Tumalo, where they located digital scales, packaging materials and glass pipes with suspected methamphetamine residue. Also located at the home was John McGolrick, 31, of Bend, who was arrested and jailed for a probation violation.

Bend employee sought OK for junket • Summary of inquiry says no evidence of favoritism was uncovered By Nick Grube The Bulletin

A city of Bend public works employee who was disciplined last summer for going on an all-expense-paid hunting trip in 2006 sat on panels that reviewed bids for municipal contracts at that time. He also asked his supervisor for permission to go on the hunting trip, which was

paid for by private companies, but never received a response from his boss telling him he shouldn’t. The city revealed these details in a three-page report it released Thursday that summarizes the findings of a $14,000 investigation into allegations surrounding Chris Brelje, a utilities construction supervisor. The report was

released in response to public records requests made by The Bulletin. Bend City Manager Eric King did not return a call seeking comment about the report. Brelje was implicated in an anonymous complaint sent to Bend city councilors last year. That complaint alleged Brelje went on a hunting trip paid for by a local parts supplier, Con-

solidated Supply Co. It also alleged, among other things, that Brelje funneled work to his friend Rob Jackson, who was a salesman for Consolidated Supply Co. in 2006. Jackson is

now the co-owner of Creative Utility Solutions LLC. The city hired a law firm, Harrang Long Rudnick Gary PC, to investigate these claims, which came in an email from someone using the pseudonym Tom Jefferson. After the investigation, city officials were tight-lipped about what was found, confirming only that Brelje had gone on the hunting trip and that he had been disciplined. See Junkets / C2

Bend looking for relief in Bridge Creek water plan By Nick Grube The Bulletin

Bend City councilors are hoping the state takes pity on them and gives them the chance to save local ratepayers money by knocking $29 million off a $68.2 million project. On Wednesday, the council approved sending a letter to the Oregon Health Authority to ask for a delay in building a new treatment plant as part of the city’s reconstruction of its Bridge Creek water system. That project has been heavily criticized for its costs as well as its potential environmental implications. But city officials have continued to forge ahead because it includes replacing two aging pipelines they say are in danger of collapse and a building

Permit would allow for incidental killing of birds By Dylan J. Darling The Bulletin

A proposed Central Oregon wind project is the first in the country to be considered for a permit allowing for the incidental killing of birds. To make up for golden eagles killed by the turbines or power lines of the planned West Butte wind project, the company behind it would retrofit old power poles that pose an electrocution

risk to the birds. West Butte Power LLC would retrofit 11 power poles a year or more depending how many eagles are killed, said Michael Green, acting chief of the division of migratory birds and habitat programs for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Portland. “It essentially offsets any mortality that could occur at the site,” Green said.

Deschutes County officials expect they will have to ride out at least two more years of slack tax revenues and state budget cuts. The Deschutes County budget committee met to discuss the upcoming budget Thursday. County staffers are just beginning to assemble budgets for the fiscal year that will begin in July. They gave a brief overview of economic expectations to the budget committee, which is composed of the three county commissioners and three citizen members. The committee will make final decisions on the budget in May. The county’s current budget is $267 million. “We’re approaching it with the starting point that it’s going to be another difficult year,” Interim County Administrator Erik Kropp told the committee on Thursday. Sheriff Larry Blanton also attended the meeting, and said he expects the second half of 2013 and 2014 to be even more challenging. “I don’t think it’s going to be this year when we have to worry,” Blanton said. “I think it’s going to be budget year 2014.” Kropp said he did not think the county would have to reduce services to balance its budget. It’s too early for the county to predict how difficult the next budget year will be. One factor the county will be watching is possible state budget cuts during the legislative session that begins in February. More cuts could reduce money for the county to monitor parolees and provide services to children and families, Kropp said. Another factor is property values because much of the county’s general fund comes from property taxes. County Assessor Scot Langton expects property values will continue to “bounce along the bottom” during the next year, Kropp said. The county is also about to begin negotiations to renew contracts with three employee unions, so labor costs could fluctuate. The unions represent employees at the Sheriff’s Office, the Adult Parole & Probation Department and the Department of Solid Waste and the Road Department. — Reporter: 541-617-7829, hborrud@bendbulletin.com

Continued from C1 But after Jackson told The Bulletin that junkets were commonplace while he worked at Consolidated Supply, Mayor Jeff Eager called for an additional investigation. Eager also wanted documents produced by the original investigation made public. The report the city released Thursday is a condensation of the facts found in the investigation into the claims against Brelje. It states that the investigators interviewed 34 city employees, but were unable to persuade Tom Jefferson to reveal his identity or come forward with more information.

Continued from C1 Already approved by Crook and Deschutes counties, the 104-megawatt project would consist of about 50 wind turbines about 30 miles east of Bend. Pieces of the wind project would sit on land in both counties and provide enough power for about 50,000 homes, said John Stahl, managing partner of West Butte Power, which is based in Southern California. The Fish and Wildlife Service is taking comments on the proposed permit until early next month. If the agency approves the permit and Congress extends green power tax credits this year, Stahl said the turbines could be built in 2013. “This will be the last major permit,” he said. It would be a landmark permit for the Fish and Wildlife Service, the first issued for “take,” or the incidental killing or harming, of birds un-

According to the city report, Brelje was asked to go on a hunting trip to Ruggs Ranch in Heppner by a salesman at Consolidated Supply — someone other than Jackson. The cost of the trip was estimated to be around $600. It was paid for by Consolidated Supply and other vendors that the city did not name in its report. Brelje asked his boss if he could go on the trip, and although his supervisor didn’t say no, the investigative reports didn’t state whether he “was aware that the trip would be paid for by a supplier.” Even though Brelje and Jackson “have a close personal friendship,” the city’s report clearly states that Brelje never received kickbacks from

Jackson or his companies. The report also states that “there was no evidence of favoritism or improper contracting methods” when Brelje was on city contract review committees judging bids from the private sector. According to the city, that’s true of a recent contract Jackson’s company, Creative Utility Solutions, was awarded to replace meter radio transponders. While Brelje sat on the panel that reviewed proposals from companies, “he did not hire Mr. Jackson, Mr. Jackson’s company or any other contractor for the City on this project.” In addition to the report summarizing the investigators’ findings, the city

released a memo from its purchasing manager, Gwen Chapman. In that memo, Chapman reviewed all the contracts and transactions the city had with Consolidated Supply and Creative Utility Solutions from July 1, 2009, to June 30, 2011. During that time the city spent $2.9 million with Consolidated Supply, and more than $700,000 with Creative Utility Solutions. Much of that money came from federal stimulus funds. After her review, Chapman wrote that she didn’t find anything that would indicate the city’s purchasing guidelines weren’t followed.

der a regulation it adopted in 2009. The rules allow for the incidental killing of birds by a wind project if its owners take measures to make up for it. The Fish and Wildlife Ser-

vice is considering a permit allowing for the West Butte wind project to incidentally kill up to three golden eagles over five years, Green said. Golden eagles patrol high country like West Butte, which has an average altitude of 5,000 feet, although surveys of the site indicated low numbers of eagles. While bald eagles nest about 10 miles from the proposed wind project site, Green said the birds typically focus on land near lakes or rivers. “So we don’t really expect bald eagles to be using that site,” he said. “There is nothing up there for them.” In planning for the project, West Butte Wind Power did have to account for another bird — the sage grouse. The project involves building an access road and power line across 41⁄2 miles of land overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. The BLM approved the road and power line last July with the condition that the

company pays for restoration and enhancement of 9,000 acres of sage grouse habitat elsewhere. Stahl said the sage grouse habitat work will cost $1.4 million. Retrofitting the old power poles will cost from $3,000 to $5,000 each, Stahl said. At 11 poles a year, that’s about $33,000 to $55,000 annually. Old power poles pose a threat to golden eagles because they hold power lines closer together than newer power poles. If birds perch on the pole and spread their wings they may touch two lines and be electrocuted. This is a particular danger for the golden eagle, which has a wingspan of about seven feet. The retrofit involves spreading the wires out on individual poles. Stahl said the plan is to retrofit poles within 10 miles of West Butte. “There are plenty of poles in the area to do that,” he said.

benefit of city ratepayers who are seeing their monthly water bills rise by as much as 40 percent over the next several years. The council’s letter highlights Bend explosive growth over the past two decades, as well as its deep dependence on real estate and tourism that was exploited during the recession, giving the area one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. Because Bend’s recovery likely will be slow, the letter states: “Substantial water rate increases during this period of slow economic recovery and high unemployment is

detrimental to Bend’s struggling families.” The city also states in the letter that because of the age of the pipes that currently send water from Bridge Creek to Bend — one built in the 1920s and one in the 1950s — delayed replacement is not an option. Replacing these pipes will cost $30 million, and compounds the burden on the local ratepayers. In exchange for a delay, the city promises in its letter that it will continue to design its water project for a treatment plant. It will also work on additional measures to protect the

Bridge Creek watershed. This could includes closing off certain areas, placing additional warning signs and putting up educational kiosks at the nearby Tumalo Falls parking area. “The City still proposes difficult (rate) increases to build reserves over the course of an agreed upon number of years as part of its compliance schedule,” the letter states. “The hope is by spreading them out, the impact will be less devastating to the ratepayers and citizens of Bend.”

Public comments The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is taking public comments on a permit that would allow for the incidental killing of three golden eagles every five years at the proposed West Butte wind project 30 miles east of Bend. Comments should be sent by email to pacific_birds@ fws.gov, by mail to Michael Green, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Pacific Region, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 911 N.E. 11th Ave., Portland, OR 97232 or by fax to 503-231-2019. Comments are due by Feb. 2.

Water Continued from C1 Bend must treat its water by 2014 to comply with the cryptosporidium mandate, known as the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, or LT2. City councilors, however, think they have a chance of proving to the state — which enforces LT2 — that there are extenuating circumstances that might allow them a delay in compliance with the rule. If successful, it could mean building a $39 million project right away, and adding a treatment plant later, all to the

EUGENE

City builds fence for councilor heckled by protesters The Associated Press EUGENE — The city is building a fence at the home of a City Council member who opposed the Occupy Eugene encampment after demonstrators on his lawn, including some topless women, unnerved a family with two young children who were out viewing Christmas lights. The nighttime demonstrations in front of George Poling’s home also appalled Poling neighbors, the Eugene Register-Guard newspaper reported. Poling was one of three council members who consistently voted against allowing the Occupy protesters to camp in city parks, but some participants singled him out for opposing fires at the camp. On Christmas night, a group of 15 to 20 people erected tents on Poling’s lawn. Four were arrested on trespassing charges. Four nights later, five masked women stood on the sidewalk in front of his house with a gong and had letters written on their chests spelling out the word “truth.” No arrests were made. Police are keeping a watch on Poling’s house, and both Poling and the city have paid for unspecified security measures. Last week, a 6-foot-tall chain link fence was placed in front of Poling’s home at city expense, and on Wednesday, workers began replacing the fence with a permanent wrought iron fence. “It’s not just about me,” Poling said. “It’s about my wife who has had to put up with this. It’s about this family whose children were traumatized by what they saw.” The council disbanded the Occupy camp after a fight broke out there, leading to the death of one man. That led to the protests outside Poling’s house, though they were not endorsed by Occupy leaders.

Regional airline’s exit irks Northwest towns The Associated Press NEWPORT — The decision by a Portland-based regional airline to stop service to several Northwest towns after receiving economic incentives has left some community leaders unhappy. But SeaPort Airlines says it can’t fly if it can’t make a profit, and it’s changing its business strategy. In the past year, SeaPort has added and abandoned service in five different places, The Oregonian newspaper reported. Last week it said it would drop its Portland-to-Seattle flights and cease operations at Seattle’s Boeing Field. SeaPort started service between Portland and Seattle in 2008. The following spring, subsidized by $4.5 million in state and federal grants, it began service to Newport and Astoria on the Oregon Coast. It left Astoria about the same time the subsidies ran out, in March. It left Newport in July. It added a stop in Salem in late April and left after three months, giving less than a week’s notice to the Oregon capital city, which spent $10,000 marketing the service. SeaPort began flying Idaho Falls to Boise in July and gave notice it was leaving less than six months later. “Their track record is not very good at this point,” said Newport Mayor Mark McConnell. “If I was a city of people trying to make a decision to help them out, absolutely I’d be leery about giving them a

whole lot of money upfront.” Tim Sieber, a SeaPort vice president, said there were not enough passengers in the coastal towns and Salem. “We tried to use more economical planes to lower costs,” he said. “We stayed in Newport after the subsidy, and tried the stop in Salem. That didn’t even pay to cover the cost of wear and tear on the brakes, to be quite blunt about it.” In Idaho Falls, airport aviation director Len Nelson said business was good and getting better. “We were just starting to fill the airplanes up,” he said. “Out of nine seats, we were filling it a lot of times, and averaging five-six passengers a flight.” Sieber said the distance of the 200-mile Idaho flight and the airline’s plan to switch to more economical but slower aircraft were factors, and the airline learned lessons. “There is a direct highway link,” he said. “Traffic-wise it was good, but there was a tipping point where people were

willing to fly in an airplane and then as you edge up the fare, people say, ‘No, I’m going to drive.’ ” The airline now wants to develop routes in rural towns not linked to bigger cities by interstate highways, Sieber said, with routes of less than 200 miles. The company plans new service in North Bend, Yakima and Wenatchee in central Washington and Jackson and Nashville in Tennessee, reflecting a dual focus on the Northwest and the mid-South. The company also flies in Alaska, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Texas. Rural routes give SeaPort a chance to expand without heavy competition, Sieber said. The federal government subsidizes many of SeaPort’s rural routes through its Essential Air Service program. Sieber said the payments, with $9.8 million expected this year, cover 20 percent to 60 percent of operating costs. In North Bend, the airport is waiving landing and counter space fees for the first six months, providing personnel on the tarmac and at the customer service counter for the first four months, and also marketing the airline. “We did the math,” executive director Therese Cook said. “Basically, the revenue exceeds the waivers. No matter the history of SeaPort, I have to look at a whole new scenario. I honestly believe SeaPort is going to be a really good fit.”

PORTLAND — A new report from a wolf management review panel says state and federal biologists are unreasonably far apart in determining the cause of cattle deaths, stating that national scientists have reached “difficult to understand” conclusions that would financially benefit cattlemen and could harm wolves. The report scheduled to be presented today to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission states that some findings reached by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services appeared “to be inconsistent with evidence presented and in a number of instances appeared to be the result of misidentification of evidence.” At stake are set-aside state funds that would reimburse cattlemen if the state determines wolves were behind a livestock kill. Also, ranchers with such claims could be allowed to take potentially lethal deterrent measures. State wildlife biologists have been far more cautious in their assessments of canine guilt than their federal counterparts. Furthermore, the report notes confusion about how state and federal agencies reached different conclusions based on the same data, calling into question federal determinations. “The panel found it difficult to understand how (Wildlife Services) investigators reached their conclusions from their written reports,” according to the report. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife identified 33 livestock kill investigations, 10 of which were confirmed wolf kills. But in at least three instances where state biologists said the source of a livestock death couldn’t be determined, federal biologists said they found conclusive evidence of wolf culpability. “There’s several instanc-

es and cases where you have differences of professional opinion,” Wildlife Services state director Dave Williams said Thursday. “We have a long history of working together on all types of wildlife management plans.” The $100,000 compensation fund, established by the Legislature in 2011, is controlled by the Oregon Department of Agriculture but will be administered on the local level by county committees. Ranchers who have lost livestock or who plan to install deterrents such as special fencing must file claims with county committees, which in turn must apply for money on Feb. 15 each year. Also, 33 ranchers have obtained state permits that would let them kill wolves seen biting or killing livestock, but ranchers have to visually witness the attack. Wolves typically hunt at night. Sean Stevens, spokesman for conservation group Oregon Wild, said the report calls the Wildlife Services investigations’ credibility into question. “What this panel report shows is Wildlife Services isn’t following evidence in reaching their conclusions,” Stevens said. The panel, assembled by ODFW, consisted of four ODFW employees, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services field supervisor, a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist, and Carter Niemeyer, a retired federal wildlife agent. The report comes days after Oregon’s most famous wolf, called OR-7, crossed into California. OR-7 left the Imnaha pack in northeastern Oregon last September, shortly before the state put a death warrant on his father — the pack’s alpha male — and a sibling for killing cattle.

Rescuers lift car off pinned cyclist PORTLAND — A crew of firefighters, short on time with a man pinned under a car, lifted the vehicle off the bicyclist by hand just before rush hour Thursday morning. The rescue, which took about two minutes, came after witnesses called 911 to report the pinned cyclist in east Portland. The man, Samuel Guthrie, 30, was struck by a car and then rolled over by another car, which pinned him facedown in a busy intersection, the Oregonian reported. Firefighters would usually use jacks or airbags to lift the vehicle, but Portland Fire and Rescue Lt. Damon Simmons said they didn’t have time to set up equipment.

Former state worker sentenced for theft PORTLAND — A former case manager for the Oregon Department of Human Services was sentenced Wednesday in Portland to 15 months in prison for embezzling $62,000 from the state. Diana Baxter was fired after it was discovered she was pocketing benefits under false names. The 43-year-old

pleaded guilty in September to 20 counts of theft and other crimes. DHS spokesman Gene Evans told The Oregonian newspaper the agency now requires two sets of eyes to approve each new application for benefits.

New civics toolkit given to students SALEM — Secretary of State Kate Brown visited four Salem-Keizer high schools Wednesday to promote a new state civics toolkit. Brown told an American government class at McNary High School that 60 percent of Oregonians can’t name the three branches of government. The students proved they were smarter than most Oregonians by responding with “executive, legislative and judicial.” The Statesman Journal newspaper reported the 10-lesson toolkit was developed by educators and election experts.

Mattress World cites tax bill in its collapse

HOLIDAY DOUBLE

PORTLAND — Mattress World owner Sherri Hiner says her business collapsed under the weight of a slow economy and a $2 million tax bill from the state of Washington. The 15-year-old Portland company is closing seven stores. Two others are independently operated. Hiner told The Oregonian newspaper she wasn’t aware she had to collect sales taxes on mattresses delivered to Washington residents if she didn’t have a store in that state. Washington tax officials conducted an audit of her records back to 2003 and demanded the $2 million.

Keep a lid on state borrowing

I

f you were going to make a list of what Oregon state government is good at, there would be a check mark by: Running up debt.

“We have a significant trend of not being disciplined about these things over the long term,� Michael Jordan, director of the state Department of Administrative Services, told the Statesman Journal in Salem. A new draft state report says legislators should not be going into the February legislative session looking to add bond projects paid for by the general fund or lottery proceeds. Revenues are down. Lottery proceeds are down. The report does say that projects, such as highway construction, that have their own dedicated sources of funding might be OK. The state’s Debt Policy Advisory Commission will make an official recommendation to the Legislature this week. Whether the Legislature follows the recommendation is another matter. For those of you keeping score, Oregon’s general fund debt was close to $3 billion as of last year. Lottery bond debt was about $1.2 billion. Oregon’s targeted roof for

debt service payments for the general fund, for instance, is 5 percent of the income from the general fund. Oregon is now slightly above that target. Already, the Statesman Journal reports, there are rumblings from legislators for new bond projects, including a home for veterans in Lebanon. State Rep. Phil Barnhart, D-Eugene, who is a member of the debt policy commission, said lawmakers should be free to consider worthy jobcreating projects, even if they involve debt. State Treasurer Ted Wheeler and Jordan, the head of DAS, said what the state really needs is not to look at individual bond projects but to create something it does not have: a plan for state bond projects over the next 10 years. We hope that with revenues being what they are, state government will put more emphasis on creating an environment for private businesses to thrive rather than adding debt.

Malheur plan will help avoid lawsuits T he Malheur Wildlife Refuge, south of Burns, is arguably one of Eastern Oregon’s gems. More than 320 species of birds and another 58 of mammals spend all or part of the year on the refuge, and the spring bird migration is worth the trip for even the most casual wildlife watcher. Management planning for the nearly 200,000 acres within the refuge could become one of those endlessly contentious processes that seem to surround any government land-use planning. With everyone from merchants in Burns to cattlemen with grazing leases to the Oregon Natural Desert Association interested in the area, the chance for real battles is great. Yet to date, the creation of a new 15year plan to guide refuge management has avoided those fights. That is because the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, which oversees the refuge, decided to take a new approach to creating the plan. It did not just draw up goals, then bring interested parties in to shape them. From the beginning of the process, the agency engaged the High Desert Partnership, which aims to protect both the people and the natural resources of the region and other stakeholders. They were assisted by Oregon Consensus, a Portland State University program which, according to its website, “provides a variety of services to help people collaborate on solu-

tions to public issues.� So far, the process has gone well. Everyone from the folks at ONDA to nearby landowners and refuge managers have agreed on what should get priority — getting a handle on a burgeoning and destructive carp population — and that management should change as information about the refuge and the natural resources there changes. The next step will be telling, however, and how it plays out surely will help decide if the refuge’s planning effort should be repeated elsewhere. That’s because the next step will be release of a written plan later this month or early in February that will actually guide management over the next 15 years. If they reflect what those who took part in the creation of the plan believe they agreed to, the usual lawsuits and threats of lawsuits may be avoided, or at least greatly reduced. And if that happens, the collaborative process or some version of it no doubt could be used by other government agencies faced with difficult decisions to make. No planning approach will make everyone happy, of course, but working toward consensus, as this group has done, surely could reduce the number of folks so upset they head straight for the lawyer’s office.

Support not linked to HDR By Mark Capell uring the Dec. 21 City Council meeting, Eileen Woodward spoke against the city’s Surface Water Project. Rather than state her reasons against the project, she chose to attack me regarding my involvement in the project with the City Council. I approached Eileen regarding the water project, hoping we could meet to discuss our different opinions, but she has thus far refused. In a letter to the editor in The Bulletin on Dec. 30, she reiterated her comments about me. Part of being on the City Council is taking some abuse from unhappy citizens. Eileen has chosen, rather than arguing the pros and cons of the water project, to question my ethics in two public forums. Therefore, I feel that it is necessary to defend myself. Quite some time after the City Council voted to move forward on the water project and after HDR was selected as the engineering firm, my brother Paul told me that he was considering a job with HDR. Paul is an electrical engineer. He spent almost 30 years with Pacific Power. HDR is a very large, international engineering firm. Paul is Western Regional VP of Energy. Paul has never been involved with the Bend water project. When he was hired by HDR, he signed a legal document with his employer that he will have no involvement with any project involving the city of Bend. As soon as Paul told me that he was considering this job, I called

D

IN MY VIEW My support for this project has nothing to do with the contractual arrangement between the city and HDR. Mary Winters, the city attorney, to find out what I needed to do, recognizing that there was a potential conflict. Mary spent considerable time consulting with the office of the Oregon Ethics Commission. She advised me that when the council is discussing the water project, I should declare a “potential conflict� but that I can still participate in discussions and vote on the issue. When the council is discussing the HDR contract, I should declare an “actual conflict� and not participate in the discussion or the vote. I have carried out that advice exactly. Why I support the water project: 1. The pipe is old and failing. Parts of the inside of the pipe are showing up in the holding tanks. It needs to be replaced soon. 2. Timing the pipe replacement with the rebuilding of Skyliner Road by the county and the federal government will save us somewhere between $3 million and $6 million. 3. Having two water sources, ground and surface, is smart longterm planning. If something happens to one of the sources, we have

a backup. 4. Water rights attorneys have told the council that it is risky to move our surface water rights to ground water. In the future, we will need to gain additional rights, so to put these rights at risk does not make sense. 5. Opponents to the project say that wells would be less expensive. They are right in the short term. However, in the long term, we will spend more to pump well water while the surface water project will generate revenue through hydroelectric power. 6. Another reason opponents oppose the project is that they want more water left in the creek. I agree with that goal. We take a small portion of the water compared to Tumalo Irrigation District. We can have a much bigger impact on returning water to the creek by working with the irrigation district. That’s why I am working on the Deschutes Water Alliance Board. The most difficult decision to make on council is when we raise a rate. No one on council likes to do that. We understand that rates are a big concern to the community and we are requesting an alternative compliance schedule with the state to defer approximately half of the project costs. My support for this project has nothing to do with the contractual arrangement between the city and HDR. This project is about making good infrastructure investments for the long-term vitality of Bend. — Mark Capell is a Bend city councilor.

Economic struggles nothing new in Central Oregon A n acquaintance stopped me the other day to talk about Bend and business. A relative newcomer to the area, the woman wanted to know if the current downturn is typical. After doing some checking, and with the caveat that I’m no expert on this sort of thing, I’d have to say, yes, sort of. Bend’s always has been a boomor-bust economy to one degree or another, and that’s true today. And, while the reasons for it have changed, housing demand continues to have a huge influence on just what side of that cycle we sit. When we were a mill town, even weather could cause temporary upset. Too hot and dry, and logging crews faced restrictions in the woods. Too cold and windy, and power outages resulted. Nor were the problems onetime events. Papers in The Bulletin’s archives from the 1940s talk about the

region’s power shortages “returning� on the heels of exceptionally cold weather. Those problems extended beyond the mills into neighborhoods around the city as the power company struggled to keep electricity flowing. In fact, through much of my childhood, Bend could be downright bleak in the dead of winter, at least from an economic point of view. Little or no logging went on in the winter, making life for the families of loggers

difficult. And their pain spread beyond their own homes to the grocery stores, clothing stores and others whose customers cut back to make ends meet. Recession is nothing new to Oregon, according to the state Employment Department, which published a paper on the subject a couple of years ago. During the 1960s and though most of the ’70s, downturns tended to be short “shock� recessions that were marked by a rapid drop in the employment rate and an equally rapid rise back out of the slump. (And remember, during that period, even in good times the state’s unemployment rate tended to be higher than the national average, with the rate in Central Oregon higher still.)

That changed with a bang in the recession of 1979-83, which has been described as the worst in 70 years. Kicked off by fuel shortages, it lasted and lasted and lasted. It wasn’t until 1986 that recovery was complete. About a third of the state’s woodproducts jobs were lost during the period, and the wood products industry provided about 40 percent of all jobs in Oregon. Construction jobs dropped by half, and the state’s unemployment rate stayed in double digits for two full years. It may be small comfort, but as high as the area’s unemployment rate has been in recent years, it’s far from a record. One thing that makes the state’s recessions more painful is this, the state says: While people leave some states when times get tough, that hasn’t been true in Oregon. People continue to move in, though in lower numbers. I know that was true in the early 1980s, and figures from local school

districts seem to indicate it’s true today. Newcomers make the competition for fewer jobs even tougher. But just as Oregon’s and Central Oregon’s recessions have been worse in some respects than those in the nation as a whole, this is also true. Each one has ended. It may have taken time, years even in some cases, but none has lasted forever. I suspect that for many of us, that light at the end of a bleak economic tunnel can be hard to see some days, but surely it is there. Just as the good times cannot last forever — though in 2005 and 2006 you might have had trouble persuading folks that is true — neither can the bad. Like the weather, apparently, the economy seeks neutrality, matching boom to recession again and again. And like the weather, it may achieve neutrality for a time, but it never lasts. — Janet Stevens is deputy editor of The Bulletin.

Biologist accused of illegal activity with killer whales By Howard Mintz San Jose Mercury News

SAN JOSE, Calif. — A prominent Monterey, Calif., marine biologist who specializes in the study of whales is the target of a federal grand jury indictment accusing her of violating various marine mammal protection laws, including two alleged instances in which she fed a killer whale in Monterey Bay’s waters. Nancy Black, whose expertise on killer whales and other species has been featured everywhere from National Geographic to Animal Planet, was charged in San Jose federal court Wednesday with committing the violations in 2004 and 2005 while operating her whale-watching business in Monterey Bay. The four-page indictment alleges that Black twice violated provisions of federal laws barring a host of activities involving protected marine mammals in national marine sanctuaries such as Monterey Bay. Among other things, the indictment alleges that Black violated provisions that bar the feeding, or attempted feeding, of whales, a rare prosecution under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

Scientist rebuts charges Black’s lawyers strongly defended her conduct, saying she has taken the position since confronted by the government in 2006 “that she broke no laws.� San Francisco attorney Lawrence Biegel said at the time Black is accused of illegally feeding whales, she had

FEATURED OBITUARY

Mike Colalillo, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for an extraordinary machine gun assault on German soldiers toward the end of World War II that inflicted 25 enemy casualties, died Dec. 30 at a nursing facility in Duluth, Minn. He was 86. He had congestive heart failure, said his son, Al Colalillo. On April 7, 1945, Colalillo was a 19-year-old Army private first class on a patrol outside Untergriesheim, Germany, when his unit came under a barrage of enemy fire. Pinned down by German machine guns and artillery, Colalillo turned to his fellow soldiers and told them to follow his lead. Inspired by his confidence, the soldiers “advanced

Colalillo surged toward the Germans,firinghissubmachine gun until it was knocked from his hands by shrapnel. He then ran toward an American tank to take control of a machine gun mounted above its cannon turret. Bullets clanged off the tank’s armor and zipped by his body as Colalillo delivered his own withering response to the German onslaught. “It was a rough time, and I was scared,� Colalillo told the St. Paul Pioneer Press in 2004, “but I had to do what I had to do.� Colalillo blasted at one en-

Accused of lying Scott Kathey, federal regulatory coordinator for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, said the charges are the result of an ongoing investigation by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Justice Department. He referred questions to the Justice Department, which declined to comment on the indictment. Black is also charged with lying to investigators about altering an October 2005 video of a whale-watching expedition involving possible illegal contact with a humpback whale in the bay. Monterey Bay was designated one of 13 federal marine sanctuaries in 1992.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A group of Sacramentoarea property owners and land managers on Wednesday threatened to sue the federal government if it does not proceed with removing a native beetle from the endangered species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service initially proposed removing the valley elderberry longhorn beetle from the endangered species list in 2006. But the process has dragged along and the beetle remains protected. On Wednesday, the Pacific Legal Foundation, a Sacramento-based nonprofit law firm, said the delay may have cost its clients millions of dollars over the past five years. Those clients include landowners, levee maintenance districts and farming organizations that have been required to protect beetle habitat. Though there is evidence the beetle’s population has

improved, its habitat has always been relatively abundant. The valley elderberry bush, the beetle’s specific host plant, is hardy and commonplace. But because the beetle remains protected, construction projects are often required to relocate or replant the bushes at great expense. The legal foundation on Wednesday delivered a 60day notice of intent to sue the Fish and Wildlife Service, a prerequisite under the Endangered Species Act. “We didn’t want to have to file this,� said Brandon Middleton, an attorney for the legal group. “This first step in potential litigation really is, unfortunately, the only way to force the agency’s hand.� Fish and Wildlife spokesman Robert Moler said his agency has had inadequate resources to complete the beetle’s delisting review in a timely fashion. “The review continues to be a high priority for us,� Moler said.

a research permit from the government and was within the law in her research work. Rather than feed whales, Black was using an underwater camera to film the eating habits of killer whales who were feeding off floating pieces of blubber from a dead gray whale, according to her account. Black, her lawyers maintain, used that work for a scientific conference in Norway, and conducted the research with the knowledge of other scientists, including some working for the government. She plans to use her case to show her whale research was about science, not a crime. “We view this indictment as an opportunity for Ms. Black to explain her techniques and methods to a fairminded jury of her peers,� Biegel said.

ing another three Germans and destroying another machine gun position. After his gun jammed, Colalillo dismounted from the tank and grabbed a submachine gun to continue his assault on foot. According to the Medal of Honor citation, he killed or

wounded 25 enemy soldiers. When ordered to withdraw, Colalillo stayed behind to carry a wounded soldier over his shoulder through open terrain while artillery and mortar rounds pulverized the ground around him. A few weeks later, he was approached by two military police officers who escorted him to a nearby headquarters. He recalled later that he thought he was under arrest. He was informed that the tank’s commander had nominated him for the Medal of Honor, which he received in December 1945 at a White House ceremony. Colalillo said his boyhood friends in Minnesota were surprised by the award and told him, “How could a little twerp like you get the Medal of Honor?�

SPORTS THE BULLETIN • FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2012

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Sacramento Kings fired coach Paul Westphal on Thursday, cutting ties after twoplus seasons amid a slow start and an escalating dispute with young center DeMarcus Cousins. Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie made the announcement ahead of the team’s home game against Milwaukee on Thursday night. Assistant coach Keith Smart, let go by the Golden State Warriors this summer after one season, served as head coach versus the Bucks in a 103-100 win. Looking to build momentum for a new arena project, Sacramento stumbled at the start again this year. A talented and athletic — albeit raw — roster is 3-5 after Thursday’s win. “I want to thank Paul for all of his effort on behalf of the Kings,” Petrie said. “Unfortunately, the overall performance level of the team has not approached what we felt was reasonable to expect. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.” In two-plus seasons leading the Kings, Westphal finished with a 51-120 record. The 61-year-old Westphal also previously coached the Phoenix Suns and Seattle SuperSonics.

NBA Sacramento fires coach

Bulletin staff report LA PINE — By the end of Bend High’s 54-18 dual meet wresting victory over host La Pine, the Lava Bears had thoroughly impressed their coach, Luke Larwin. “It’s a great day for Bend wrestling,” Larwin said. “The kids wrestled aggressively. Some of the young guys really stepped up.” In all, the Lava Bears notched 11 wins, seven of which came by pin, in defeating the Hawks. Some of the biggest matches in the meet, however, went to decision. Gavin Gerdes of Bend and Garrett Searcy of La Pine faced off at 182 pounds in a match between two wrestlers highly regarded in Class 5A and Class 4A, respectively. Gerdes took a 9-8 decision over Searcy in the eighth match of the night. “Gavin wrestled really well against (Searcy),” Larwin said. “It was a controlled match. It was good to see Gavin do the little things to win.” Larwin said he was particularly impressed with his heavyweight wrestler David O’Conner. See Wrestling / D4

Having won five consecutive high school state nordic skiing titles, the Summit boys see no reason to let up this winter. Senior Ryan St. Clair, the Oregon High School Nordic overall runner-up last February, returns for the Storm this season, as does junior Max Millslagle, who finished fifth at state. Nick St. Clair, Skyler Kenna and Niko Giannioses are all expected to help Summit compete for another OHSNO state championship this year. See Nordic / D4

SOCCER MLS will have longest season NEW YORK — Major League Soccer will have its longest season this year, with the final played Dec. 1. The league announced in November that its 17th season will start March 10, five days earlier than in 2011. Last year’s final was Nov. 20. The Portland Timbers open their season Monday, March 12, when they host the Philadelphia Union. With the expansion Montreal Impact giving the league 19 teams, MLS is switching to an unbalanced schedule while keeping the regular season at 34 games per team. Just seven games conflict with FIFA fixture dates, when many star players are away with national teams. About 83 percent of games are on weekends and holidays, and all 323 games will be televised live. A record nine games are scheduled for April 28. — The Associated Press

Jeff Nelson started running and biking in 1980. More than 30 years later, he has logged 100,000 miles.

When Jeff Nelson took up running more than three decades ago, he started small. He went a block. Since then, he’s gone long: 100,000 miles worth. Not all of it was running. About the time he’d run nearly the equivalent of a trip around the world, his knees basically called it quits on him, so he switched to a bicycle and kept right on going. One hundred thousand miles. That’s nearly nine miles for every day since that day in December 1980 when a few buddies at the YMCA in Wenatchee, Wash., asked him to join them on their regular jogs through town. “I thought, ‘Gosh, I’m not in good enough shape to do this,’ ” recalls Nelson. Nelson wasn’t some out-of-shape slob. Not

even close. He weighed 225 pounds, but it was spread out over his imposing 6-foot-4inch frame, and he’d been active for most of his life. But he wasn’t sure how he’d take to running, so he started conservatively. One block. Then two. Then he got serious about goal-setting. On Jan. 1, 1981, he made an entry in his calendar on the distance he ran that day with a group of friends in what they called “the Hangover Run,” ostensibly to atone for the previous evening’s New Year’s Eve parties. Since then, Nelson has counted every mile he has run, biked, hiked or cross-country skied. See 100K / D6

Jeff Nelson has bicycled over nearly every Washington mountain pass reachable by road. He’s ridden the Oregon and Northern California coastlines, and biked across British Columbia. He had pedaled parks and roadways throughout Utah, Arizona and Idaho.

Beavs, Ducks win in Pac-12 play Oregon State beats Cal, Oregon tops Stanford, D4

NEW ORLEANS — A few months ago, when there were rumblings that Virginia Tech might be jumping to the Southeastern Conference, Eddie Whitley and his teammates got excited. “Everyone was like, ‘Man, I would love to play there!’” the Hokies senior safety said, his eyes lighting up. “I was like, ‘Man, I wish I was a freshman now!’” The switch never happened. Virginia Tech stayed put, at least for the time being, in the Atlantic Coast Conference. But Whitley’s account sums up what just about everyone else in the nation has been forced to concede: Love it or hate, no one plays college football like the SEC. Look no further than Monday night’s BCS title game between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama. For the first time under this format, two teams from the same league — heck, the same division — are facing off in a no-lose situation for the SEC. Before one strand of confetti falls to Superdome floor, the conference is assured of its sixth straight national title. No other conference has won more than three in a row. “You’ve got the best athletes in the nation going to one conference,” Whitley marveled. “Alabama’s got linebackers that are 260, 270 (pounds). Our defensive TACKLES are 270.” The SEC’s dominance has been decades in the making. Many point to the SEC’s revolutionary decision in the early 1990s to expand from 10 to 12 teams. See SEC / D6

From opening night until New Year’s Day, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady dared defenses to stop them. Nobody could. Yards and points were accumulated at record rates in the NFL this season, and because those three star quarterbacks — along with other slingers such as Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger — are still chasing a championship as the playoffs begin this

weekend, the question becomes: Will the postseason be as passheavy and filled with points as the regular season was? “It’s kind of the way it was this year, all year, and it’s really the way teams are built — to throw the football,” said quarterback Matt Ryan, whose Atlanta Falcons play at Manning’s New York Giants on Sunday. “I guess I can see that moving forward.” See Playoffs / D5

Eastern Conference

• Wisconsin RB Ball will stay for senior year: Wisconsin running back Montee Ball is coming back for his senior season. Ball told reporters that NFL evaluators informed him he would likely be a third-round draft pick and he thinks he can improve his stock. He scored 39 touchdowns this season, tying Barry Sanders’ NCAA record. He finished the year with 1,923 yards rushing and 2,229 all-purpose yards, second in Wisconsin history only to Ron Dayne’s 2,242 yards in 1996. He rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown in the Badgers’ 45-38 loss to Oregon in the Rose Bowl. • Oklahoma QB to return: Quarterback Landry Jones has decided to come back for his senior year at Oklahoma, saying “there is still a lot more to do.” Jones said Thursday that it would be a great honor to play in the NFL, but with most of the offensive line, several receivers and defensive players returning, the team hopes to get another shot at a national championship. Jones is the Sooners’ all-time leading passer with 12,389 yards. • BCS to consider plus-1?: Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive says he expects “meaningful discussions about possible changes to the BCS” in the coming months, including about making it a four-team playoff. Slive said Thursday he would “reserve judgment” about the nature of the change. The commissioner pushed for the so-called “plus-one model” in 2008, but there was not enough support for it among the other conference commissioners. He says this time around he’s interested to hear his colleagues’ ideas. • Report says Pats’ O’Brien to be named Penn State coach: Forty-six years after it hired Joe Paterno as its head football coach, Penn State reportedly has replaced the tarnished legend with another middleaged Brown graduate. According to an ESPN report late Thursday night, New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien has agreed to succeed Paterno, who was dismissed in November after a child sex-abuse scandal rocked the Nittany Lions’ program he had built into a national symbol. Quoting unnamed sources, the network’s Chris Mortensen said the move would be made official Saturday.

Motor sports • Holowczyc wins stage at Dakar Rally: Krzysztof Holowczyc of Poland won the fifth stage of the Dakar Rally in Fiambala, Argentina, on Thursday, taking second place in the overall standings in the car category behind Stephane Peterhansel of France. In motorcycling, Cyril Despres of France won the stage and maintained his overall lead ahead of defending champion Marc Coma of Spain.The fifth stage marked the last full day in Argentina. The race moves to Chile and then the finish in Lima, Peru, on Jan. 15.

Tennis • France into Hopman Cup final: France qualified for the Hopman Cup final when Richard Gasquet finished off a 6-2, 6-4 win over Fernando Verdasco on his fifth match point Thursday in Perth, Australia, to secure a 2-0 victory over Spain. Marion Bartoli gave the French a 1-0 advantage in the best-of-three match when she beat Anabel Medina Garrigues 6-2, 6-4 in the women’s singles. Gasquet then ensured France would finish atop Group B when he fended off Verdasco in 78 minutes. The Group A finalist will be determined today, with the top-seeded Czech Republic taking on Denmark. • Federer, Tsonga into semis: Defending champion Roger Federer was tested for the first time Thursday at the Qatar Open before defeating Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 to reach the semifinals. The third-ranked Federer set up a rematch of last year’s semifinal against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, after the Frenchman cruised past unseeded Albert Ramos of Spain 62, 6-1. Rafael Nadal also reached the semifinals, playing some of his best tennis this week in dispatching of Mikhail Youzhny 6-4, 6-4. He will face Gael Monfils, who won the last four games in each set to beat Viktor Troicki of Serbia 6-2, 6-3 and ensure that the top four seeds reached the semifinals for the second straight year.

Skiing • Austrian wins World Cup night slalom: Austria’s Marcel Hirscher overcame a rapidly deteriorating course in warm weather to win a World Cup night slalom Thursday in Zagreb, Croatia, and take first place in the overall standings. Hirscher led after the first run and finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 51.84 seconds, beating Felix Neureuther of Germany by 0.29 seconds. Defending overall champion Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was third, 0.48 behind. American Ted Ligety finished 14th.

Baseball • Pujols deal completed: Albert Pujols officially joined the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday when Major League Baseball and the players’ association confirmed the terms of the first baseman’s 10-year contract and agreed its guaranteed value is $240 million. The deal was reached four weeks earlier on the final day of the winter meetings and took nearly a month to complete. His 2012 salary will be $12 million, down from the $16 million he made last year in the option year of his contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. Pujols salary increases to $16 million in 2013 and $23 million in 2014, then rises $1 million annually until he makes $30 million in 2021, when he will be 41. • Cubs trade Zambrano to Marlins: The Miami Marlins are counting on excitable Ozzie Guillen to have a calming influence on quarrelsome Carlos Zambrano. The plan may sound crazy, but say this for the Marlins: They’ve become harder to ignore. Their latest offseason move was approved Thursday, when they acquired Zambrano from the Chicago Cubs for underachieving right-hander Chris Volstad. The Marlins believe Zambrano’s career can be resuscitated by pairing him with fellow Venezuelan and good friend Guillen, the team’s new manager. In Chicago, Zambrano was a three-time All-Star, but he also feuded with teammates, management and umpires.

Hockey • Host Senators have four elected All-Stars: The Ottawa Senators are assured of having at least four familiar faces on the ice when they host the NHL AllStar game this month. Defenseman Erik Karlsson led all vote-getters in fan balloting, and captain Daniel Alfredsson and fellow forwards Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza also were elected for the game on Jan. 29. The NHL said Thursday they will be joined by Toronto defenseman Dion Phaneuf and Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas in this year’s game. —From wire reports

• Gerald Wallace scores 31 points to lead Portland The Associated Press PORTLAND — Gerald Wallace had 31 points and sparked a key third-quarter run to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a fast-paced 107-96 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night. LaMarcus Aldridge added 28 points and 10 rebounds for Portland, which led by as many as 14 points. The Blazers had just four turnovers despite pushing the tempo for the entire game. The Blazers sit atop the Western Conference at 5-1 — their lone loss coming on New Year’s Day at the Clippers. Kobe Bryant scored 30 points despite a torn ligament in his right wrist, and Andrew Bynum had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Lakers, who have had trouble at the Rose Garden, with losses in 11 of their past 13 games in Portland. Los Angeles went zero for 11 from three-point range. The Lakers, who fell to 4-4, were coming off a 108-99 home victory over Houston on Tuesday. Bynum, who was suspended for the first four games of the season, had 21 points and 22 rebounds against the Rockets — the first 20-20 game of his career. The Blazers were coming off a 103-93 win at Oklahoma City. The Lakers were without Josh McRoberts, who sat out a second straight game with a strained big toe on his left foot. Blazers coach Nate McMillan promised that Portland would run against the Lakers, and the result was a frenetic pace from the start. Paul Gasol’s tip-in gave Los Angeles its biggest lead of the first half at 28-21. The Blazers closed the gap, and Jamal Crawford’s jumper and free throw put them up 36-35 with just over eight minutes to go in the half. The lead was short-lived, but Portland stayed close. Los Angeles shot 61 percent from the field, but led just 56-52 at the half. Portland shot 43 percent. Both teams were even at 46 percent in the end. The Blazers trailed 60-59 early in the third quarter, but Wallace made a layup and a free throw early to

Late power-play goal lifts Flyers past Blackhawks The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — James van Riemsdyk’s second goal on the power play with 32.8 seconds remaining lifted the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night. Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane scored 25 seconds apart late in the third period to tie it, but van Riemsdyk made sure the Flyers shook off the disappointment from their Winter Classic loss. Scott Hartnell, Harry Zolnierczyk and van Riemsdyk scored goals in a span of 4:20 in the second period, and Jakub Voracek also scored for the Flyers against Ray Emery in his first game back in Philadelphia. Ilya Bryzgalov made 30 saves to earn his first win since Dec. 13.

THE BULLETIN • FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2012

Nordic Continued from D1 The Summit girls, who placed fourth at state in 2011, also look to be strong, especially in light of reigning champion Redmond’s losses to graduation. Storm skiers Emily Hyde and Olivia Moehl expect to pace Summit this season. Redmond had a 2011 OHSNO state championship meet to remember, as the Panthers girls took the team title and the boys finished as runners-up. “That was pretty much a stellar year for us,” Redmond coach Ken Roadman says. “We worked pretty hard. This was one that was building for a few years.” Roadman is optimistic about his team’s prospects in 2012, but attrition hit the Panthers harder than most. Just 11 skiers will take to the trails for the Redmond boys and girls this season. “We lost about two-thirds of our team to graduation, or they were exchange students,” Roadman says. Juniors Sierra Foster and Sam Scholz and senior Elissa Brouillard will expect to lead the Redmond girls this year. Back for the boys is junior Joseph Donohue and senior Nick Evans, but Roadman is intrigued at the potential of seniors Philip Aulie and Luke Maxwell. Aulie swam for the Panthers and had an older sister go through the Redmond nordic program. Maxwell has an alpine skiing background. “They’re both showing great promise,” Roadman says. Bend expects to field a nordic racing team of 44 boys and girls after fielding a seven-member team five years ago. Coach Gene Fitzsimmons attributes the surge in popularity to “kids (talking) about it with their friends, and getting them to join.” Fitzsimmons says that approximately half of his team members are inexperienced in competitive settings, but he returns a solid base of leadership for this season. Juniors Peter Schwarz and Jack Widmer are expected to be top performers for the Lava Bears boys, and juniors Melissa Hubler (11th place at the OHSNO state championships last season) and Kira Smiley are expected to pace the girls. Among the newcomers, Fitzsimmons awarded praise to juniors Steven Dougherty, Jaired Rodmaker and Luna Fagan and senior Rita Deems. “(Steven and Jared) both picked up (nordic) really quickly,” Fitzsimmons says. “Luna and Rita are both skiing really well. I have high hopes for those girls.” Bend finished third in both the boys and girls races at the OHSNO championship meet last season. Fitzsimmons is confident in his teams’ ability to compete on the biggest stages. “It’s up for grabs to see who gets on the podium,” Fitzsimmons says about the 2012 nordic season. “No one is a lock.” Sisters has put together a six-person nordic squad this year, and while coach Tom Blust lauds his “good core” of returners, senior Amity Calvin, the Outlaws’ top returning female, suffered a knee injury during soccer season and continues to recover. Sisters’ top returning boy is senior Mason Calmettes, who finished 16th at the 2011 state meet. “I’m hoping he gets into the top 10 this (season),” Tom Blust says. Mountain View continued its dominance of the Oregon Interscholastic Ski Racing Association, taking home its fifth consecutive boys team title and third girls team title in four years. The Cougars are expected to contend for OISRA state titles again this season. Senior Hayati Wolfenden, who finished second in the OISRA’s overall standings last year, is expected to lead the Mountain View girls. — Reporter: rhusseman@bendbulletin.com.

Ducks get 30 from Joseph, top Stanford

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

OSU beats Cal for first Pac-12 win The Associated Press CORVALLIS — Oregon State let a big lead slip away but found enough in the closing minutes to get an important win. Jared Cunningham and Ahmad Starks had 24 points apiece Thursday as the Beavers held off a late California run for a 92-85 win. Oregon State (11-4, 1-2 Pac-12), which also got 14 points from Angus Brandt and 13 from Joe Burton, led by as many as 16 in the second half only to see Cal (12-4, 2-1) close within four points with five minutes left. “We didn’t get rattled, and that’s big because you stay under control and you just keep making good plays, smart decisions,” said Starks, who had five threepointers, including one that put the Beavers back ahead 10 with 1:49 left. Both teams shot well from the floor in the second half — Oregon State was 16 of 21, while Cal was 18 of 29. The Beavers finished 31 of 49 (63 percent), while the Golden Bears were 31 of 54 (57 percent). Cal’s Jorge Gutierrez had 17 of his game-high 26 points in the second half. Justin Cobbs added 18 points and five assists for the Golden Bears. “There’s a lot of things you can look at, but the fact is they played extremely well,” Cal coach Mike Montgomery said of the Beavers. Oregon State took the lead for good, 40-38, on Cunningham’s two free throws 11 seconds after halftime. A Starks three-pointer later put the Beavers ahead seven, and Oregon State got the lead to 10 for the first time, 60-50, on two more Cunningham foul shots with 12:23 remaining. Cal got as close as eight, but Oregon State answered with six straight points to go back ahead 68-54 with 9:56 left. The Beavers went ahead by 16 before Cal scored 12 straight, including two three-pointers by Allen Crabbe and a four-point play by Gutierrez, to close within 77-73 with five minutes left. But the Beavers scored the next four and the Golden Bears got no closer than six the rest of the way. “They know how to come from behind,” Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said of the Golden Bears. “It was nice to see them really take a run at us and for us to hold onto our guts and give them a run right back and widen it back out. It’s a great learning experience and a great accomplishment because they’re young guys and they haven’t been in a position like this before.” Oregon State was 11 of 18 on three-pointers, including Starks’ five, three by Brandt and two by Cunningham. Also on Thursday:

The Associated Press EUGENE — Oregon’s Devoe Joseph followed his worst game of the season with the best game of his career. Joseph tortured Stanford with three-pointers and clutch free throws en route to 30 points in a 78-67 victory in the Ducks’ Pac-12 home opener. It was quite a turnaround for Joseph, the top scorer for Oregon (11-4, 2-1). He was coming off a four-point, onefor-13 shooting performance Saturday against Washington. But against the Cardinal (12-3, 2-1), Joseph made nine of 15 from the floor, including five of nine from three-point range. “My teammates trusted me,” said Joseph, a senior guard whose previous best was 23 points in 2009 when he was a freshman at Minnesota. His previous best as a Duck was 19. E.J. Singler scored 13 points for the Ducks, who went 10 for 12 from the free throw line in the final three minutes. Oregon is off to its best start since opening 12-4 in 2006-07 and is 9-0 this season when scoring at least 70. “There was a little electricity tonight in the ballgame,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “We’ve been kind of lacking that at home. We haven’t given them much to cheer about, but we haven’t been energized at home.” Josh Owens led the Cardinal (12-3, 2-1) with 19 points. Aaron Bright also scored 14 points for the Cardinal, and John Gage added 13. Oregon led 34-32 at halftime and fell behind only once in the second half, following a three-pointer by Gage that made it 50-49 with 10:50 to play. But Joseph followed with a quick 3pointer in transition and then another on Oregon’s next possession from the corner to make it 55-50. “I just got a lot of good looks tonight,” said Joseph, who scored 18 points in the second half. “We were going fast, and I got them in mixed up situations and I just got open.” Forward Tyrone Nared, who missed six games with a small tear in his left MCL, returned to the lineup and had five points and five rebounds in 23 minutes. “We don’t have a lot of rah-rah guys that get us going in the locker room, so when Ty came back he brought energy off the bench,” Oregon center Tony Woods said. The Ducks’ 78 points were the most scored against Stanford all season and marked only the third time a team had gotten at least 70. Oregon also shot 48 percent from the floor against a defense that had been holding opponents to an average of 39.5 percent. Altman said Joseph was the one who sparked Oregon’s offense. “Devoe had a big ballgame that kind of saved us,” Altman said. “I’m really happy for Devoe. He felt really bad after that Washington game.”

FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2012 • THE BULLETIN

Breaking down the wild-card round A look at this weekend’s wild-card playoff games in the NFL, which take place Saturday and Sunday:

Cincinnati Bengals (9-7) at Houston Texans (10-6)

Atlanta Falcons (10-6) at New York Giants (9-7)

When: Saturday, 1:30 p.m. TV: NBC Last meeting: Texans beat Bengals 20-19, Dec. 11 The skinny: This is the first time since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 that a playoff game will feature two rookie starting quarterbacks. The Bengals did not beat a playoff team all season (0-7 overall), but they are a good road cover team (5-1-2) against the spread (ATS). The Texans, formed in 2002, are making their first trip to the postseason. Houston was fifth-best in the NFL with a 9-5-2 mark ATS. I’ve liked Cincy QB Andy Dalton all year, but I think the Texans’ T.J. Yates has better accessories than Dalton in this rookie matchup. Stats and notes: Houston has won past three over Cincinnati. Texans clinched first AFC South title and The Associated Press file playoff spot in franchise history Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates by beating Bengals 20-19 at Paul Brown Stadium on Dec. 11. ... Bengals haven’t won playoff game since the end of 1990 season, when they beat Houston Oilers 41-14. ... Bengals QB Andy Dalton started all 16 games. Texans QB T.J. Yates got in for last five after Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart got hurt. ... Dalton missed practice Wednesday because of bad case of flu, but returned a day later. ... Over last six games, Dalton threw five touchdowns and only one interception in 184 attempts. ... During loss to Houston last month, Dalton and Bengals offense had miserable second half, blowing 6-3 lead. They managed 81 yards in second half, including only 9 yards on 14 rushes. ... Houston RBs Arian Foster (1,224) and Ben Tate (942) were only teammates in NFL to run for at least 900 yards apiece this season. ... Bengals had season-high five sacks in last game against Houston. ... Houston WR Andre Johnson has 19 catches for 278 yards in past two games against Bengals. He sat out win in Cincinnati with pulled hamstring. ... Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green’s 1,057 yards receiving are most by rookie in franchise history. The pick: Texans, 23-17

When: Sunday, 10 a.m. TV: Fox Last meeting: Giants beat Falcons 34-31 OT, Nov. 22, 2009 The skinny: Some of the chatter this week has been about how the 2011 Giants are similar to the Giants’ 2008 Super Bowl team. Can we slow down a minute here? After a 6-2 start this season, the G-Men lost four straight, and the usual second-half “Coughlin Collapse” talk cropped up. To their credit, the Giants won three of their last four, including last week vs. Dallas for the NFC East. Big Blue is 5-1 ATS in their past six playoff games. That said, I’m just not sold on the Giants this season. If the Falcons’ “Dirt Bag” offensive line can control the Giants’ improved pass rush, I think Atlanta has too many weapons for the Giants’ shaky secondary. Also, Atlanta is 22-4 when RB Michael The Associated Press file Turner runs for 100 or more yards. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning The Falcons and QB Matt Ryan (0-2 in 2 career playoff games) learned a lot after losing last season as the NFC’s No. 1 seed to eventual Super Bowl champ Green Bay. Stats and notes: First playoff game between the teams. ... Giants have won past three games, but Falcons have won five of past six in New Jersey. ... First time Atlanta qualifies for playoffs in consecutive seasons. ... Falcons QB Matt Ryan had team-record 4,177 yards passing. ... RB Michael Turner rushed for 1,340 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has run for 50 TDs since 2008, second most in league. ... WR Roddy White led NFC with 100 catches, his second consecutive 100-catch season. ... Giants QB Eli Manning had franchise-record 4,933 yards passing and eight 300-yard games. ... Giants running game is last in league. ... WR Victor Cruz had team-record 1,536 yards receiving and nine touchdowns. ... WR Hakeem Nicks ranks second with 76 catches for 1,192 yards and seven touchdowns. ... DE Jason Pierre-Paul’s 16½ sacks were fourth in league. The pick: Falcons, 27-24

Detroit Lions (10-6) at New Orleans Saints (13-3)

Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4) at Denver Broncos (8-8)

When: Saturday, 5 p.m. TV: NBC Last meeting: Saints beat Lions 31-17, Dec. 4 The skinny: I still cannot believe the Lions couldn’t beat what amounted to the Packers’ JV squad last week! (Packers QB Matt Flynn: 480 yards, 6 TDs vs. Lions, who knew he had it in him?) If Detroit would have won, they would be coming to MetLife Stadium (and I believe they would have won vs. G-Men). Instead, the Lions have the unenviable task of facing the buzzsaw known as the Saints, who are 8-0 ATS at home this season. Hard to pick against Drew Brees and that juggernaut offense at home. Stats and notes: Detroit making first playoff appearance since 1999. ... Lions set NFL single-season mark by coming back to win three games after trailing by 17 or more The Associated Press file points. ... Lions QB Matthew StafDetroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford ford set team passing records with 5,038 yards and 41 TDs, becoming fourth NFL QB with 5,000 yards passing in season, joining Hall of Famer Dan Marino, Saints’ Drew Brees and New England’s Tom Brady. ... Lions WR Calvin Johnson led NFL with 1,681 yards receiving and led NFC with 16 TDs receiving. ... DE Cliff Avril led Lions with 11 sacks and led NFC with six forced fumbles. ... Lions’ Ndamukong Suh has 14 sacks over two seasons, second most by DT in NFL during that span. ... New Orleans has won eight in row and tied club record with 13 wins, equaling win total set by 2009 Super Bowl champion squad. ... New Orleans had 8-0 home record for first time in club’s 45-year history. ... New Orleans set NFL record with 7,474 offensive yards and 5,347 yards passing. ... Brees set single-season records for completions (468) and completion percentage (71.2). ... Brees completed 26 of 36 passes (72.2 percent) for 342 yards, three TDs in last meeting. The pick: Saints, 41-28

When: Sunday, 1:30 p.m. TV: CBS Last meeting: Steelers beat Broncos 28-10, Nov. 9, 2009 The skinny: I know the Steelers are without RB Rashard Mendenhall (knee) and DB Ryan Clark (blood disorder). And, yes, Big Ben is still limping around Pittsburgh’s practice facility after what he termed a “little setback” last week vs. the Browns. But the Black & Gold is 9-2 ATS in their past 11 playoff games. Plus, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is 10-3 in the playoffs overall, and has never lost a road playoff game (3-0). I believe the Tim Tebow experiment is over. Stats and notes: Teams split six playoff games, last one coming in AFC championship Jan. 22, 2006, when Steelers prevailed 34-17. ... QB Ben Roethlisberger 10-3 lifetime in playoffs. In only playoff The Associated Press file appearance against Broncos, he Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow completed 21 of 29 passes for 275 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 124.9 passer rating. ... Steelers without top tailback Rashard Mendenhall but backup Isaac Redman had career-best 92 yards last week against Browns. ... WR Mike Wallace (1,193) topped 1,000 yards receiving for second straight season, and WR Hines Ward became eighth NFL player to catch 1,000 passes. He also has 88 catches in playoffs for 1,181 yards and 10 TDs. ... Steelers defense allowed NFL lows in points per game (14.2), yards per game (271.8) and yards passing per game (171.9). ... LB Von Miller leads Broncos with 11½ sacks but has just one in past month while playing with cumbersome cast on right hand. ... QB Tim Tebow is 7-4 as starter but has lost three straight after six-game winning streak that included four straight fourth-quarter comebacks. The pick: Steelers, 26-10

NFL

and the general trend over the years of rules changes favoring players on offense. Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott raised another factor: increased emphasis on finding top players for the offense. “Take a look at (New England’s Rob) Gronkowski. You go, ‘Wow!’ All of a sudden, pretty much every team has an athlete like that at the tight end position. At fullback, too. And everybody has not one, but two or more good receivers. Look at Green Bay, and all the people that touch the ball for them,” said Lott, who played in the 1980s and 1990s. “When I came into the league, there was one team like that: the San Diego Chargers. They had Kellen Winslow, John Jefferson, Charlie Joiner, Chuck Muncie, with Dan Fouts at the helm. Now you look at teams like Detroit (and say), ‘That guy is great. That guy is great. That guy is productive. Look at what that guy has done.’ Now it’s all about the piling up of weapons that each team has, and the unique characteristics that each team brings.” Still, Lott wasn’t so sure there will be what he called “epic scoring” in these playoffs, figuring the defenses will find a way to catch up. As for the primacy of offense over defense, it’s worth noting where this season’s two No. 1-seeded teams ranked in yards allowed: The NFC’s Packers (15-1) were 32nd among the league’s 32 teams; the AFC’s Patriots (13-3) were 31st. “Personally, I think that we’re going to step up. Obviously, there’s going to be a lot of high-powered offenses in these playoffs,” Green Bay cornerback Tramon Williams said. “We know we haven’t played to our expectations, but we still have that belief that we can.” There are, of course, playoff teams

Continued from D1 It all began in Game 1, when Rodgers and Brees combined for 731 yards and six touchdowns through the air, helping the past two Super Bowl champions, the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints, put up 76 points. A few days later, Brady threw for 517 yards for the New England Patriots. On and on it went, all the way through Week 17, when even the resting Rodgers’ backup, Matt Flynn, got in on the act, breaking franchise marks by passing for 480 yards and six TDs in a 45-41 victory over the Detroit Lions, whose own quarterback, Matthew Stafford, also produced “Did I read that right?” numbers: 520 yards, five touchdowns. Add it up, and NFL teams gained more yards combined per game than ever (693.7, 21.7 higher than the old mark). They also scored more points combined per game (44.4) than any time since 1965, a season before the first Super Bowl. The entire history of the league had produced two 5,000yard passing seasons; there were three in 2011 (by Brady, Brees and Stafford). For the first time, three teams scored more than 500 points in the same season (Packers, Saints, Patriots). Quarterbacks threw for 300 or more yards in a game 121 times, 17 more than in any prior season. “I don’t necessarily expect things to change much in the playoffs. We’re definitely trending toward higher numbers,” said Joe Theismann, who quarterbacked the Washington Redskins to the 1983 NFL title. His team’s success was predicated in part on the running of John Riggins behind an offensive line known as the Hogs, but that old formula of relying on the ground game for success in

January might be exactly that: an old formula. “The way we’ve thought about traditional and conventional football in the past has changed, and it has changed significantly,” Theismann said. “Basically, now you run just to slow down the pass rush a little bit or you run to set up your play-action passing game for big plays.” Conventional wisdom used to dictate that it’s important to be able to run the ball in cold, blustery playoff weather. But Theismann and Rodgers both pointed to last weekend’s 86-point, passing free-for-all at Lambeau Field, where Flynn and Stafford ignored the 20 mph wind, freezing temperature and snow flurries. The teams that boast nine of the NFL’s 10 highest-rated passers this season made the playoffs (although No. 6, Houston’s Matt Schaub, is injured). And of the teams with the 13 lowest-rated quarterbacks, only one is still around: Denver, with Tim Tebow, which hosts Pittsburgh on Sunday. Similarly, seven of the league’s nine leaders in yards receiving made the playoffs. Anyone not convinced that running games aren’t central to a team’s success should consider this: Only six of the league’s top 18 rushers made it to the postseason. And in last year’s Super Bowl, for example, the Packers ran the ball 13 times and threw it 39. Among the reasons cited for all of the big plays this season: During the lockout, which cut down on formal offseason work, it was easier for players on offense than those on defense to get together for informal sessions; the new collective bargaining agreement reduced contact in practice, leading to poorer tackling; emphasis on enforcing rules against illegal hits made some defensive players more tentative;

that know they can play good defense. The Steelers (12-4), for example, gave up the fewest yards and points in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers (13-3) were fourth in yards allowed, second in points allowed, and didn’t allow a TD rushing until their 15th game. The Baltimore Ravens (12-4), Houston Texans (10-6), Cincinnati Bengals (106) and Denver Broncos (8-8) also rely on their ability to stop teams. That’s part of why the wild-card opener between the Bengals and Texans on Saturday isn’t expected to follow the tons-of-yards-and-points trend. Another key factor: It’s the first playoff game in NFL history pitting two starting rookie QBs (Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton and Houston’s T.J. Yates). Things are expected to get particularly wild Saturday night, though. The over-under line for combined points in the Lions-Saints NFC game in the controlled climate of New Orleans’ dome is 59, the highest for a postseason matchup. “I know how explosive Detroit is offensively. I also know that I think we feel like we’re playing (good) football as a team and as an offense. But you know, it seems like, typically, when you get weeks like this where everybody’s hyping up one side of the ball or the other and, you know, kind of predicting it to be a shootout or whatever, the defenses are off kind of quietly in the corner, making sure they come out with their best performance and they take that as motivation,” said Brees, whose set of records this season includes yards passing (5,476), completions (468), completion percentage (71.2) and 300-yard games (13). “It could be a back-and-forth shootout,” Brees summed up. “It could also be a defensive struggle.” Sure it could, Drew.

THE BULLETIN • FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2012

SEC Continued from D1 That allowed it to become the first conference to split into divisions and set up its own championship game. Other factors, everything from an exclusive national television deal with CBS to top coaches such as LSU’s Les Miles and Alabama’s Nick Saban to the abundance of high school talent in the Deep South, help keep the SEC on top year after year. But the real roots of the SEC’s breakaway can be traced to the turbulent ’60s, when the region was ripped apart by the struggle for civil rights and its universities were still clinging to the notion of only letting whites through the schoolhouse door. In 1966, Alabama posted a perfect 11-0 record with an all-white team but still finished third in The Associated Press poll behind Notre Dame and Michigan State, which had played to a 10-10 tie. The feeling at the time, and one that is even more apparent with the hindsight of history, was that both the Fighting Irish and the Spartans were superior programs because they had African-Americans players and faced teams that allowed them on the field, too. “There were athletes who were qualified and capable and had the ability to play in the SEC, but they were not recruited because they were black,” said Wilbur Hackett, a longtime conference referee who, in the late ’60s, became the first African-American captain when he played at Kentucky, persevering through intense racial prejudice. When it became clear that integration was inevitable, the SEC finally tapped into a whole new pool of talent, gaining the inside track to huge numbers of immensely qualified locals who had always been forced to sign with historically black schools or venture far from home, to the Big Ten or the Pacific Coast, if they wanted to play at the highest level. Today, every SEC roster is filled with black players. Their influence on the game is undeniable. “The league was strong, but it could have been stronger if they had integrated sooner,” Hackett said. “Look at the Tennessee States and the Jackson States and the Gramblings, all the players from those schools that went on to play in the NFL. Now, those schools don’t put players in the NFL because all those players are in the SEC.” Over the past 10 years, a staggering 72 players from SEC schools have been first-round draft picks. The Big 12 is next on the list, far behind at 51. With Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton leading the way, the SEC had five of the top six picks in 2011. The odd man out was Von Miller from Texas A&M — which is joining the league next fall. “There’s a lot of talent down there and they do a good job of coaching a lot of talent,” said Al Borges, the offensive coordinator at Michigan who formerly coached at Auburn. “That’s all there is to it.” Digging a little deeper, the emphasis on defense in the SEC has largely fueled its rise to power (34 of those 72 first-round picks came from the less-heralded side of the line). Not surprisingly, Alabama and LSU are the nation’s two best defensive teams, filled with impact players such as Crimson Tide linebacker Dont’a Hightower and Tigers cornerback Tyrann “Honey Badger” Mathieu. From the perspective of ESPN analyst Todd Blackledge, it all starts up front. “I really don’t think they have more speed at those skill positions on offense than the Big 12 or the Pac-12 or anyone else,” he said. “But those defensive linemen in the SEC, that’s where the difference is.” Blackledge points to last year’s BCS title game, when Auburn stifled high-powered Oregon 22-19 to claim the SEC’s fifth straight championship. Offense may excite the fans, but teams such as West Virginia (a 70-33 winner over Clemson in the Orange Bowl) and Oklahoma State (which beat Stanford 41-38 in the Fiesta Bowl) didn’t qualify for the biggest game of all. Rest assured, defense still wins championships. “Auburn was, at best, a middle-of-the-pack defense in the SEC — and Oregon could not block their front,” Blackledge said. “Until teams in other conferences make inroads on defense, it’s just going to be hard to catch the SEC.” Blackledge also believes that SEC schools are more willing to bring in junior college signees, especially on the defensive side, players who are often challenged academically and shunned by schools that don’t think they can keep up in the classroom. This, of course, fits in with another popularly held image of the SEC as nothing more

100K Continued from D1 Most of the first 24,000 miles or so — nearly the equivalent of a trip around the world — he did on foot, right up until his knees began to give him trouble. Since then most of the miles have come while riding a bicycle, always logged on those calendar pages. They’ve come in and around Wenatchee, then in St. Paul, Minn., where he lived while his wife, Carol, studied in seminary school to become a pastor, and, since 2004, in and around Yakima. He has bicycled over nearly every Washington mountain pass reachable by road. He’s ridden the Oregon and Northern California coastlines, and biked across British Columbia. He had pedaled parks and roadways throughout Utah, Arizona and Idaho. And he kept writing all that mileage down. “I just wanted a record of how many miles I moved my body,” he says. “I value regular physical activity, and I feel really good when I’m doing this. I’m 70 years old, and I can do things a 50-year-old does.” Last month, he mentioned to the friend he was riding with that he’d be reaching the 100,000-mile landmark on that day’s ride. His buddy, J.D. Sundseth, was flabbergasted.

Arkansas vs. K-State in BCS-worthy Cotton Bowl ARLINGTON, Texas — For coach Bill Snyder’s second Wildcat turnaround and 11th-ranked Kansas State’s surprising season, the Cotton Bowl is an appropriate ending. When the Wildcats first played in the Cotton Bowl 15 years ago, that New Year’s Day game was a watershed moment for a program that had evolved from consecutive winless seasons just before Snyder arrived. They went again at the end of the 2000 season, during a stretch of six 11-win seasons in seven years before the coach’s brief retirement. Seventh-ranked Arkansas, meanwhile, gets another game at Cowboys Stadium, where a stunning second-half comeback against Texas A&M three months ago was a catalyst in a season where the Razorbacks’ only losses are to No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, the two teams playing in the BCS national championship game next week. “I thought the game we played here this year really helped us throughout our season. We came into halftime and we were down 18 points, but our team rallied together. Our leadership really showed up,” Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino said. “To be able to really bring out the competitive spirit that our team showed from that point on, I think carried us throughout the season.” The Cotton Bowl matchup of 10-2 teams tonight is the only postseason game featuring the Big 12 vs. the SEC, which expands next season with the addition of outgoing Big 12 members Texas A&M and Missouri. No other non-BCS bowl had both teams ranked even in the top 15 of the Bowl Championship Series standings, much less the top eight. —The Associated Press

than a dozen football factories (well, 11, leaving out Vanderbilt). The largest building on most campuses is a palace such as Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium (capacity: 101,821), a convenient symbol of college athletics gone wild. When Texas A&M joins, the conference will have eight of the 20 biggest stadiums in college football, all with seating for at least 80,000. Of course, the SEC can quickly counter that it’s hardly the only conference to place a huge emphasis on football. Three of the four largest stadiums — at Michigan, Penn State and Ohio State — are in the Big Ten. And while plenty of SEC programs have run afoul of NCAA rules, perhaps the worst scandal in college football history erupted beyond its borders: the childsex abuse accusations against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky that led to the firing of coach Joe Paterno. But there’s little doubt the SEC is boosted by an accident of geography, too. Five of the nine states in the league’s current makeup have no major-league franchises of any type to steal away attention from the gridiron. “Maybe it’s the culture of the South,” said Michigan lineman David Molk, whose team was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. “They’re much more focused on football. The North has a lot of other things to do. ... Down here, it’s football. That’s it. It’s football from birth.” Of course, there are those who have grown weary of all the SEC hype, who see it as a league that is reluctant to travel too far from home, yet still receives preferential treatment in the rankings and a little too much praise from the media. Georgia, for instance, went 42 seasons without playing a regular-season game outside the confines of the old Confederacy (if Kentucky is included) before traveling to Oklahoma State in 2008. This season, Alabama lost to LSU at home, 9-6 in overtime, but still wound up No. 2 in the BCS rankings over other oneloss teams such as Oklahoma State. “I do feel like they get first dibs on everything,” said quarterback Tajh Boyd of ACC champion Clemson. Certainly, the folks at Big 12 champion Oklahoma State felt they deserved a chance to play for the title rather than having to watch an SEC rematch on TV. “People see the SEC different than they do any other conference,” Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said. “It’s deservingly so, because they have won in the big game. But, in my opinion, from top to bottom the Big 12 was the strongest league in the country this year.” Gundy, it seems, is in the minority. “You could say we’re getting tired of hearing about the SEC, but we all know it’s the best,” Molk said. “They have all the talent. They should win it every year.”

“I couldn’t believe it. A hundred thousand miles? That’s a lot of cycling,” says Sundseth, who credits Nelson for having been “kind of my mentor” in introducing him to bicycling. “He kind of showed me the ropes,” Sundseth says. Nelson doesn’t ride his bicycle every day; he says he rides probably five days a week, typically averaging more than 20 miles a ride. His annual mileage goal is 5,200 miles — 100 miles a week. He has bicycled as much as 110 miles in a day, hiked as far as 30 miles and has run three marathons (with a best of three hours and 22 minutes, a 7:42-per-mile pace). He has dayhiked through the Enchantments, going in over Aasgard Pass and coming out by way of the Snow Lakes trail. Sometimes Carol is riding alongside him, and sometimes she’s what Nelson calls “my support crew.” But whoever is riding alongside him enjoys it, because, as Sundseth says, Nelson isn’t a hard-core rider focused only on his mileage. He’s telling stories, cracking jokes and enjoying the views. “He’s an easy friend to be with,” Sundseth says. “He’s kind of like a comfortable old shoe. He doesn’t wear out.” Evidently not.

‘Switched’ seen as a good sign ‘S w itched at Birth’ 8 p.m. Tuesdays, ABC Family

This guide, compiled by Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel film critic Roger Moore, should be used along with the Motion Picture Association of America rating system for selecting movies suitable for children. Films rated G, PG or PG-13 are included in this weekly listing, along with occasional R-rated films that may have entertainment or educational value for older children with parental guidance.

‘THE DARKEST HOUR’

By Chuck Bamey Contra Costa Times

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Olivia Stein, a 17-year-old student at California School for the Deaf in Fremont, Calif., can probably count on one hand how many times she has seen someone like herself beaming from a TV screen. It’s no wonder, then, that she has become hooked on “Switched at Birth,� a feelgood family drama pegged, in part, to multiple deaf characters who have brought some prime-time exposure to an underrepresented segment of society. “It allows us to be more involved. We can relate. We’re finally seeing people like us,� she said through a sign-language interpreter. “And it’s showing the world that deaf people are cool. We rock.� “Switched at Birth� debuted on ABC Family last summer with a sensationalistic premise: A couple of teen girls — one of whom is deaf — discover that, due to a hospital error, they wound up with the wrong parents. Now their families, from two different worlds, are struggling to get to know each other. The show, which resumed its first season Tuesday, became an instant ratings hit for ABC Family. Moreover, it sparked wide interest among the deaf community for its frank and respectful depiction of people with hearing loss. The teen girl who is deaf, Daphne Vasquez, is played by Katie Leclerc, who in real life has Meniere’s disease, a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance. Also among the cast are deaf actors Sean Berdy and Marlee Matlin. The series was created by Lizzy Weiss, who took

courses in American Sign Language while attending Duke University. “Switched at Birth� doesn’t focus solely on deafness — the soapy twists and turns cover a wide terrain. But it does explore several pertinent deaf issues, including communication and societal barriers, speech therapy and the debate over cochlear implants. It also makes extensive use of sign language, subtitles and something very rare in this era of pop-cultural clatter: Moments of utter silence. Anna Schumacher, a Berkeley, Calif., native who served as an on-set interpreter for “Switched at Birth,� calls the show an important step forward because it doesn’t isolate its deaf characters “into a novelty category� or portray them as disabled. “While Daphne’s life is by no means easy, because of many variables, she is seen as just as bright, capable, insightful and full as any teenager,� she said. “Yet she experiences the world in a different way and has a wonderful language at her fingertips.� Leclerc, 25, says that the show is dispersing an impor-

tant message. “People tend to be afraid of what they’re unfamiliar with, so communicating (with the deaf) can be somewhat intimidating,� she said. “If we can come into people’s homes and show that it’s not that hard — and that we all have similar struggles — it’s a good thing.� The actress, who is enjoying her first breakout role in a 10-year career, says that the feedback she has received from viewers is especially gratifying. “I’ve heard from people who tell me they now have a better understanding of a deaf relative,� she said. “Others have said they’re changing their college major to sign language because they want to be an interpreter. That’s pretty cool.�

Rating: PG-13 for sci-fi action violence and some language What it’s about: Young American travelers are in a country where they don’t speak the language — Russia — when the aliens invade. The kid attractor factor: Aliens, special effects, and Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor, Emile Hirsch and Max Minghella. Good lessons/bad lessons: “Teamwork makes the dream work.� And never go out in shoes you can’t run for your life in. Violence: Abstract sci-fi disintegrations. Language: Pretty clean, considering the cast and the situation. Sex: Provocative attire is as far as it goes. Drugs: Bar hopping entails a bit of drinking. Parents’ advisory: Pretty mild stuff for this genre, OK for 9 and older.

‘YOUNG ADULT’ Rating: R for language and some sexual content. What it’s about: A former prom queen and high school beauty goes home, years later, to take a second shot at her high school beau. The kid attractor factor: Charlize Theron; seeing alleged adults act as if they’re still in high school. Good lessons/bad lessons: “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,� and once a mean girl, always a mean girl.

Violence: Discussed. Language: The main reason for the R-rating. Sex: Nothing that graphic; partial nudity. Drugs: Lots and lots of alcohol is consumed, comically, at first. Parents’ advisory: Adult in theme, this is still closer to a PG13 and has teachable moments for any would-be Kardashian-vapid, pretty mean girl in your household — OK for 14 and older.

‘WAR HORSE’ Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of war violence. What it’s about: A young thoroughbred and the teenage boy who loves him must prove themselves on the farm and then on the battlefields of World War I. The kid attractor factor: A boy and his horse, maybe the prettiest horse ever to grace the screen. Good lessons/bad lessons: In life, “There are big days, and there are small days.� You get to decide what kind of day to make it. Violence: Quite a bit of combat, some of it reasonably graphic. Language: Disney clean. Sex: None. Drugs: Alcohol is consumed and abused. Parents’ advisory: A violent

history lesson about “The Great War� seen through the eyes of a horse, this is too intense for the very young — suitable for 12 and older.

‘WE BOUGHT A ZOO’ Rating: PG for language and some thematic elements What it’s about: An adventureprone widower uproots the kids when they buy and take over a small rural zoo. The kid attractor factor: Cute kids, cuter critters, children living in and trying to save the family zoo. Good lessons/bad lessons: “Bad things happen, you just keep going.� “You do something for the right reasons, nothing can stop you.� Violence: A couple of off-camera deaths. Language: A scattering of profanity, with some of it coming from the kids. Sex: A little young teen romance, a little adult flirtation. Drugs: Alcohol is consumed, sometimes in excess. Parents’ advisory: Despite the presence of cute kids and critters, this is too slow and adult in theme for younger children. OK for 10 and older.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2012 • THE BULLETIN

A   & A 

Girl who thinks she’s abused gets scolded by fellow teens Dear Readers: Yesterday I printed letters from adults in response to a letter from “Emotionally Abused in California� (Nov. 2), the 15-year-old who felt her mother was treating her unfairly. Today we’ll hear from teenage readers: Dear Abby: I’m a 14-yearold girl. My mom showed me the letter from “Emotionally Abused� and I almost died! Her mom sounds just like mine. I am not allowed to wear clothing that shows too much skin or get into a car with a teenage boy. I don’t have cable TV. I have to do my own laundry, clean my room, cook dinner and hem my own jeans. Every night our entire family sits down for dinner. My parents always know my plans when I’m out with my friends, and I go to church every Sunday — with the occasional groan. I’m not the perfect daughter, but I’m glad I’m being raised with integrity, responsibility and a whole lot of chores. — Cooperating Teen in New Jersey Dear Abby: From one teen to another: I have heard your same story from friends a thousand times. You’re not being treated like a criminal. Your mom is doing you a huge favor. She’s preparing you for the real world by making you pay for your own things. She’s got high expectations if she thinks you can get through college. And about your friends, she just wants to know who they are. She’s not telling you no, right? She’s a single mom, and she’s trying to protect you. You need to be easier on her and try to see things through her eyes. Not everything she does is an attack on you — in fact, it’s the opposite. — Fellow California Teen Dear Abby: I’m an 18-yearold girl and I have never been in trouble. I attend a private school where modesty is the dress code policy. To pay for tuition to this school, I work every afternoon during the school year and full-time dur-

DEAR ABBY ing the summer. I’m expected to pay for my own clothes, cellphone bill and haircuts out of my allowance. If I can’t afford something, I don’t buy it. As long as I live with my parents, I will abide by their rules. “Emotionally Abused� should have respect for her mother and be thankful for the many things she has. — Montana Teen Dear Abby: I’m also a 15-yearold Catholic girl. “Emotionally Abused� should be grateful she can attend church because it means we have religious freedom in our country. She is going to private school, which means her mother loves her enough to put her daughter’s needs ahead of her own. She needs to rethink who is being unreasonable. — Teen in Florida Dear Abby: After we read the letter from “Emotionally Abused,� my brother and I were laughing to the point of tears! I would like to say the following to her: Our mom makes my brother (who’s also 15) and me go to church every Sunday AND Wednesday. Mom home-schools us, thus making her teacher, principal and mother all in one. I’ll be 17 soon and I still can’t date. Mom checks my computer regularly, and I’m not allowed to go to chat rooms. My brother and I have to set the table and eat with her every night. As for visiting Dad, I wish we could see ours every week. Unfortunately, he’s deployed overseas. In conclusion: DEAL WITH IT! Your mom isn’t being unreasonable; she’s looking out for you. Mothers like yours are few and far between. What hurts you, hurts her. If she didn’t love you, she wouldn’t act the way she does. — Laughing Sibs in North Carolina — Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Friday, Jan. 6, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar This year you grow and evolve in new ways. Others clearly are drawn to you. Open up to new possibilities. Be willing to change your life. You enjoy living much more when you renew various areas of your life. If you are single, you could be very attracted to someone, and he or she to you. On the same plane, there could be a lot of fighting. If you are attached, the two of you will tend to risk more but in different areas of your life. Respect your differences. CANCER can be challenging. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You have the possibility of a new beginning. Be willing to express your vulnerability. Make a point of getting together with more open people. The smart and self-disciplined Ram will cut his or her defensiveness, which could manifest itself as aggression. Tonight: Hang out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Note how much you need to do to make a difference with a key person. Avoid competition, like keeping up with the Joneses. Think carefully about what is happening and why you might be triggering. Tonight: Treat yourself well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Open up to new possibilities. You see what many people cannot. Be affectionate with a friend or loved one. Open up to a family member or roommate. You know what works for you. Investigate a new opportunity without feeling insecure. Tonight: Use care with a volatile friend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Feeling a little out of sorts isn’t that surprising. Instead of taking care of your immediate universe, try taking care of yourself. Remember, if you aren’t OK, neither is anyone else. Be secure and listen to what is being shared. Tonight: Take a deep breath. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Conversation is important, as is authenticity. Bring those skills into a meeting. Someone might be a little too direct in the way he or she tells you he or she is not interested in your ideas. At least you know where this person stands. Tonight: Enjoy the evening with friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HH You might want to attempt to deal

with a situation but could come off as hostile and difficult. Step back rather than step in. Explore other ways to handle what you deem to be difficult. Try to walk in another’s shoes. Tonight: Don’t push. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Rather than be driven by your emotions, consciously make an effort to detach. Use your mind as well. Pretend you are the other person. You might want to gain a fuller perspective. Only then can you act. Listen to feedback carefully. Tonight: Opt for a different activity for a Friday night. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Dealing with quirky people easily could become a specialty, if it isn’t already! You have humor and the ability to get past a problem. Emphasize in your mind how you might be different from the many people you know. Your reactions probably surprise them, too! Tonight: Be with a favorite person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Others come toward you. You are generally the one who is energized. How nice to see everyone else taking the first step. You might be touched by a friend’s or loved one’s effort to connect. Avoid a tension-laden situation. Tonight: Though you might not make the suggestions, you do get to choose! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Follow through on what you feel is important to handle. You could feel out of sync when dealing with others. Right now your mind resides on a more intellectual, imaginative plain. Tonight: Clear your desk, and return a last-minute call before going out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your playfulness still dominates your actions. A partner or associate isn’t too pleased with his or her perspective of your mischievousness. You might be having a ball right now, but there is a tomorrow. Be smart today, and handle this situation now before trouble hits. Tonight: Be sensitive to a close friend or loved one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Tension builds internally, but a lot of it comes from your idea of what you should do. Instead, drop some of your judgments, and tension will drop to a lower key. Often it is the stories that we tell ourselves that cause a problem. Tonight: Some time at home. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Kids can make New Year’s resolutions, too By Irene Maher St. Petersburg Times

TAMPA — You don’t have to be an adult to make New Year’s resolutions. Children can get a lot out of the annual ritual, too — with a little guidance. In fact, the new year provides a good opportunity for kids to take a personal assessment — how things are going for them at home, at school, with their friends, their physical fitness — and see if they’d like to make improvements. “I’m all for it,� said Dr. Rahul Mehra, a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist who is chief medical officer for Tampa’s Mental Health Care Inc. But Mehra quickly adds that the younger the child, the more adult involvement is needed. “It’s key. The parent must have buy-in, must take 100 percent ownership of the plan, or the child won’t be successful,� Mehra said. Here’s more from our recent conversation about helping school-aged children make New Year’s resolutions.

Prenatal classes update grandparents on blankies, binkies By Monica Hesse The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — What to Expect When You’re Expecting Your Children to Expect. On a rainy weekday afternoon, a dozen students settle around a horseshoe-shaped configuration of tables in a classroom at Inova Alexandria Hospital near Washington. They then discuss the impending joy-bundles that have caused them to enroll in the seminar. “Now, the babies are supposed to sleep on their backs,” says one student, who looks to be in her 60s. “No!” “And if their heads start to flatten, they have a special device.” “No!” “Yes! They do!” “My daughter isn’t even using a crib,” another student said. “No!” “She read it in a book. A Montessori book.” This is a prenatal class. For grandparents. The prospective grandparents in this class have enrolled in order to freshen up their child-rearing skills and to become helpful, productive members of the baby industrial complex. It is also a parenting class, focusing on the delicate matter of how to nurture one’s adult progeny at a momentous

Anger Continued from E1 Bellamy explains that when a child is being yelled at, this engages their brains’ limbic system, which controls fear, rage and primitive emotion. When this is engaged, you “don’t have access to higher-thinking functions.” Bellamy says the brain is “literally inhibited from thinking clearly.” The child’s brain has no chance to regulate emotions. Also, when parents have an angry response to a child’s behavior, the child will end up focusing on the anger, rather than on what got them in trouble. Pickhardt says people pass on how they handle anger and it’s learned primarily by examples from parents. He has encountered parents who get angry all the time and yet tell their children they cannot get angry back. Or parents who explode and dismiss it as “That’s just how I am.” These parents can seriously damage their relationships with their kids, according to Pickhardt.

Root of anger Pickhardt says anger is important. The emotion is a way of getting our own attention, of letting us know we have experienced a violation of some sort, according to Pickhardt. If a child hits you, lies to you, swears or breaks a promise, anger will help identify those violations, says Pickhardt. But, “you don’t want to think with your feelings.” He says the developmental stages of early childhood and early adolescence are times of high parental anger. When you get angry, it can be helpful to think about what happened. “You will not get angry at something that does not matter,” said Pickhardt. If a child spilled milk and you get angry — try to think about why you are angry. What has happened that is important to you? Bellamy has a thought about what drives parents’ anger that might take some people aback: “We’ve been falsely conditioned to believe we are responsible for our children’s behaviors,” he said. While parents are responsible for doing everything they can to teach kids appropriate behavior, Bellamy said “you do not ultimately have control.” But when a toddler throws a piece of cake or pushes another child down, a parent may feel embarrassed, shamed and “like a bad parent,” said Bellamy. Why? Because parents see kids’ behavior as a reflection on themselves, she said. This can lead to anger because parents are too “emotionally fused with their children.” She also thinks parents have the wrong expectations when it comes to kids’ behavior. “It’s a child. And children are childish and do childish things,” Bellamy said.

Expectant grandparents learn that the rules of infant care have changed since their parental days. The best advice, participants agreed, was to “butt out” and let their children take the lead.

Nurse Linda Paroskie teaches expectant grandparents how to swaddle a child during a grandparenting class at Inova Alexandria Hospital.

time in their lives. Babies today work remarkably similarly to how babies worked 100 years ago (10 fingers, 10 toes, two eyeballs). The baby industry, however, is becoming ever more enlightened. Blankies, binkies, babas, Snuglis, Huggies, sleep sacks, activity mats, BabyLegs, goo-goo ga-ga cootchiecoo. An expectant mother is well armed with books and blog markers and prenatal preparations. Here, the grandparents will learn advanced crib purchasing, including the evils of the

drop-side crib and about remedial bathing — how the latest literature suggests saving the hair for last, to prevent chills. “I have a question about swaddlers,” asks one grandpato-be, who is attending the class along with his wife and their co-grandparenting in-laws. “We have read that babies under 7 months could work their arms out of a swaddler.” “And prams — “asks someone who is stopped by instructor Linda Paroskie’s use of the term, which clearly does not equate “pram” with “baby car-

riage.” “Are you saying that a pram is not a transportation device?” No, Paroskie says, in this new baby world “a pram is what they are calling this sleeping sack.” Paroskie, 61, is a cheerful button of a woman, a registered nurse and educator, who last year was asked to add a grandparenting class to her curriculum. She rotates among three hospitals, one class a month, often enrolled to maximum capacity. Similar classes have emerged around the country in recent years, as

grandparents want to be more hands-on, and as parents want those hands to be trained. “The young people of today can be challenging,” Paroskie said, pointing out that grandparenting classes can be excellent for dissolving friction. “They’re all very educated, and they’ve read it all online. The best way to be a good grandparent is to be supportive of your children’s decisions as parents.” What, she asks her apt pupils, is the most important rule of negotiating this transition into grandparenthood? A voice near the back: “Butt out!” Correct! “My first thought was, I raised kids and did a pretty good job,” said Peter Chapin,

“It’s a child. And children are childish and do childish things.”

Bellamy suggests parents adopt this technique: Empathize, don’t oppose. If a child says he or she doesn’t want to go to bed, Dad can say he understands he or she doesn’t want to go to sleep but has to go anyway. Parents have to keep in mind they don’t have control over what the child thinks or feels. When parents try to calm their children, they should try to empathize. That way “you’re not telling them they are wrong,” Bellamy said. When a toddler hits, Pickhardt recommends parents grasp his or her hands, look the child in the face and say, “I love you. You can’t do that. That’s a no. I don’t do that to you, you don’t do that to me.” He also suggests giving them instructions: Next time you feel that way, if you are so angry, do this — and give an alternative action or teach them to say “I’m angry.”

When a child does something that causes a parent to feel frustrated or angry, Bellamy suggests parents ask themselves to step back and consider: What are you telling yourself about the child’s behavior? Are you thinking they are being deliberate or disrespectful or that the behavior will lead to juvenile delinquency? How is the parent interpreting the meaning? “Anger is a response not so much to what they did, but to what I think it to mean,” said Bellamy. • Time out. If parents are feeling upset, they should walk away. During this time, Bellamy suggests parents

breathe slowly and ask themselves some basic questions, like, “What is my name?” and “Where am I?” These questions can help ground parents and calm them down. This will help prevent parenting from an emotional place of frustration and anger. • Self-care. When parents get tired or are feeling stretched, they are more likely to feel frustrated and angry. Because of this, Bellamy says, “It’s your responsibility to do whatever you can to keep your bucket full.” This means making sure parents feel rested and healthy. • Talk about it. If you do overreact, Pickhardt says par-

What is too angry? How does a parent know whether he or she has a problem with anger? Bellamy says it is a question of too long, too intense and too frequent. Parents should think about how long they stay angry. It should not be a matter of days or weeks. They can also consider how often they are getting angry and, on a scale of 1-10, how angry they get. There is no exact point that differentiates acceptable from problem. This range is a tool to help parents evaluate their behavior. Pickhardt says there are safe ways as well as scary ways for parents to express anger. Parents need to learn to express anger calmly and then afterwards explain that their anger has passed. Pickhardt says parents may have a problem with anger if, after an interaction, they have regret about how they acted. Or if someone tells them they have issues or some damage was done.

Local take Bend mom Kathleen Phillips attended Bellamy’s class on anger this past fall. She found it helpful in dealing with some of the struggles she encountered with her two daughters, Ivy, 6, and Ruby, 3. Mostly the girls are great, but Phillips says she can get frustrated when they don’t listen and start to pick on each other. “I didn’t seem to be effective at stepping in,” said Phillips. The class taught her to watch her own reaction to her girls. Rather than expecting to control their behavior, she now tries to think about her own reaction. “There’s no reason to amp up everything,” Phillips said. She takes a second for herself and tries to decide calmly what to do, rather than yelling “Go to your room!” Phillips says she would recommend the classes to anyone and plans to take another one along with her husband later this year.

Toddler issues Between the ages of 18 months and 3 years, Bellamy says, children are learning “individuation,” which means they are gaining a sense of themselves as a separate person. Part of this means learning to say “no” and running away from their parents. “Most parents take it very personally,” said Bellamy. If a child says “no,” parents feel the child is not respecting them. It can set the parents up for a power struggle. “A 2-year-old has to say ‘no,’ a 2-year-old has to oppose,” said Bellamy.

Teen issues Just like with toddlers, many of the reasons parents become angry with teenagers are based on typical developmental stages. “Teenagers lie to their parents some of the time — all of them do,” said Bellamy. Yet when parents learn their teen has lied to them, they immediately think, “Something’s wrong!” Pickhardt says when parents become too angry, teenagers are able to brush off what they did wrong. When asked, “Why are you being punished?” teens will respond, “Because my parent is mad at me.” This is why Pickhardt makes the point of telling parents: “When you get angry, you do not have to respond right away.” Parents can also become angry when conflict arises with teens. “Parents are a major source of frustration to adolescent life,” said Pickhardt. That’s because teens want freedom and parents set restrictions and boundaries. Rather than escalate, he suggests parents honor teens’ feelings and say things like: It must be really frustrating to have someone you love get in the way of what you really want.

when asked how he felt when he first learned about the course. But Chapin and his wife wanted to be as supportive as possible once their grandchildren — twins! — arrive. “If the daughter-in-law says the baby sleeps upside down on his head, then the baby sleeps upside down on his head,” Jenny Squire said. Rule of thumb: “With weddings and with grandchildren, you wear beige and you keep your mouth shut.” Completing this class earns grandparents a brownie point. It is a preemptive salve for the tension that can arise between a new parent and her parents. Set a good example, Paroskie encourages. Be the bigger person. Do not be the irritating mee-maw.

ents should go back and talk about what happened and how it could have been handled differently. • Use a formula to express it. When angry consider following this basic script, according to Pickhardt: Identify what happened. Then express what you felt, what you thought and what you need. — Reporter: 541-617-7860, ajohnson@bendbulletin.com

Tools to use • Don’t react. When we are angry, we often overreact. Anger creates a sense of urgency. Pickhardt says this is like pouring gasoline on fire. He suggests parents take time to think about what happened and how they want to respond. There is no reason to respond right away. “Parents need to avoid the tyranny of now.” Parents can say something like, “I feel something serious has happened and I want to think about it.” Or, “Before we talk about it, I need to calm myself down.” • Consider your thoughts.

Seattle’s Pickwick will bring their soul- and gospel-influenced sound to McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Bend on Thursday.

• Seattle’s Pickwick brings indie-soul sound to McMenamins in Bend By David Jasper The Bulletin

I

t need hardly be said, but a lot of bands have launched from Seattle — or tried to. Some flame out, others sputter before their engines really begin to fire. In the case of Pickwick, the latter applies. Guitarist Michael Parker said that, in the beginning, “We didn’t really know what we were doing, and that’s kind of part

of our story, I guess.” Their story began in 2008, after lead singer Galen Disston moved from Los Angeles to Seattle, where he met and began playing with drummer Matt Emmett, from Colorado. They enlisted keyboardist Cassady Lilstrom, whom Emmett had known in Colorado. They in turn met Seattle natives Michael Parker (guitar) and his brother,

Garrett Parker (bass). Vibraphone player Kory Kruckenberg joined later to round out the group, which will play a free show next week in Bend (see “If you go”). From the start, Pickwick sounded fairly derivative of Wilco. “We all loved ‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,’” Michael Parker said, referring to Wilco’s acclaimed 2002 album. Taking a cue from Wilco, Pickwick infused their sound with

elements of country and psychedelia, with a touch of “some electronic stuff,” said Parker. They would stick to their sonic guns for two years before facing facts. Namely, that they were stuck in the middle of the alt-country pack. The Wilco influence “didn’t really work for us. We have some friends who do music like that and are amazing at it, but for us, it just wasn’t really a good fit,” said Parker. Co n tinued Page 5

BEAT DOWN

Volcanic Funk series, Slipmat Science crew turn up the heat as winter sets in By Ben Salmon • The Bulletin

Comma next in surge of Slipmat shows

Submitted photo

Funk show series kicks off with Seattle’s Polyrhythmics T B end’s foremost funk fiend, Gabe Johnson, already dropped a ton of funk last summer with his first Volcanic Funk Festival, and now he’s carrying the funky good times through our chilliest months. (Yes! New record for use of the word “funk” in once sentence!) Over the next month, Johnson has booked four shows he’s calling Volcanic Funk Parties, featuring four bands that should keep a couple of local venues nice and sweaty even as the temperature plummets outside. Assuming, that is, the temperature eventually decides to plummet. First up Thursday, Seattle octet Polyrhythmics will fill Silver

Moon Brewing & Taproom with its ultra-modern mix of funk and global sounds. The band is a rocksolid groove factory, churning out thick chunks of Afrobeat-meetsLatin funk with a rich, vibrant horn section. Polyrhythmics’ Facebook cites influences like James Brown, Fela Kuti, The Budos Band and Talking Heads, and that all makes sense. For you local dance-floor hounds that recently watched Orgone tear it up inside The Annex in Bend, you should already have a pretty good idea of what Polyrhythmics is all about. The two are kind of kindred spirits. Polyrhythmics is touring behind its first full-length album, “Labrador,” a terrific listen that

you can hear in full at www.polyrhythmics.bandcamp.com. The funk doesn’t stop Thursday, however. The other three upcoming Volcanic Funk Parties include New York City funkateers The Pimps of Joytime on Jan. 19 at Players Bar & Grill, Portland jazz/funk explorers Pocket on Jan. 26 at Silver Moon and Colorado worldbeat septet Euforquestra on Feb. 3 at Silver Moon. You can find much more info on the series at www.p44p.biz. Polyrhythmics; 9 p.m. Thursday; $7 plus fees in advance at www.bendticket.com, $10 at the door; Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom, 24 N.W. Greenwood Ave., Bend; www .silvermoonbrewing.com.

iësto. Skrillex. Pretty Lights. Deadmau5. Rusko. If you don’t pay attention to what’s hot in the big, wide music world beyond Central Oregon, the above probably sounds like a roster of hardcore gamers’ handles or a new line of products at Ikea or something. In fact, it’s a list of the current biggest names in electronic music, a quintet of mega-DJs who are leading an explosion in popularity of house, trance, dubstep, and other danceable combos of bass and beats. In September, SPIN Magazine put Skrillex on its cover under the headline “The New Rave Generation.” That effect of that explosion is being felt right now in Central Oregon. Over the past few months, the local Slipmat Science crew — longtime organizers of regular all-night dance

parties — has been increasing the frequency of its offerings. And as the new year begins, Slipmat has its busiest stretch in recent memory on the books, with a party called Flavor Full (headliner: JPOD the Beat Chef) on Jan. 27, Beats Antique in town for a show on Feb. 4, the To The Moon party on March 2 and a 10-year anniversary event planned for April. First, though, comes Comma, a member of San Francisco’s Frite Nite collective who specializes in bass music plus hip-hop, New Wave, futuristic pop and plenty of melody. Find him at www.commasounds.com and keep up with Slipmat’s plans at www.slipmatscience.com. Comma, with Weird Science, Cymatics, Encounter and more; 8 p.m. Thursday; $5; Domino Room, 51 N.W. Greenwood Ave., Bend; www.slipmatscience.com.

From Page 3 In 2010, he and Disston met and discussed breaking up the band, “just because the stuff we were doing, we weren’t very proud of,” Parker said. “One of the things we do well as a group is we’re just brutally honest. That’s part of our relationship that had already been established by that point. We can talk to each other about things that might be a little uncomfortable, but we’re still friends at the end of the day.” Instead of disbanding, they scrapped the alt-country songs and started over. “We threw it all away. We went from having close to 20 songs to having nothing,” Parker said. Inspired by Sam Cooke’s croon, Pickwick moved to Motown, so to speak, creating a soulful sound that showcased Disston’s singing ability. The first new song they wrote based on this approach was “Hacienda Motel,” which has received consistent airplay on influential Seattle station KEXP, and gets an equally favorable reaction from audiences at live shows, Parker said. But Parker is quick to note that Pickwick is not just Mayer Hawthorne in six-piece form. Since discovering their affinity for the Motown and Staxx records of the 1960s, they’ve dug deeper into old vinyl bins, and are becoming more and more interested in soul’s antecedents, rare gospel and blues groups dating as far back as the 1920s and ’30s. Parker said they also find inspiration in some contemporary influences such as Spoon, The Walkmen

“Music really is supposed to be something that brings people together regardless of age or race or economic status.” — Michael Parker of Pickwick

and Fleet Foxes. And don’t forget the energy of New York punk circa the ’70s. “A couple of songs in particular I would say are a combination of underground gospel from the ’40s and ’50s with punk, in some ways. It’s pretty energetic. By the end of the show, we’re all pretty dehydrated,” he said. Even with all these influences named, the labels neatly affixed, all of this is still just naming basic ingredients for Pickwick’s sound. Even for those in the band, “It’s been really hard for us to define what our music is,” Parker said. “In all honesty, it’s the sound of the six of us in a room playing what comes naturally.” All the band members love combing through crates of old vinyl, and that in turn led Pickwick to make what turned out to be another smart move: Instead of issuing one longplaying CD, they began releasing their songs piecemeal, as vinyl 45s and digital downloads. Over the course of the last year, they released one single every three months, enabling them to have multiple record-release shows, instead of a one-shot CD release gig, the way the rest of the pack usually does it.

“Every time we would play, we would also be releasing new material too,” Parker said. Pickwick did three 45s of original material, followed by a fourth in which they and another band covered each other’s songs. Then, in October, they packaged all those individual singles as one EP on CD, titled “Myths.” “For some weird reason, they just started selling,” Parker said. Out three scant months, it sold so well in Seattle that it came in at No. 10 on the Sonic Boom record store’s yearend sales chart. And among releases by Seattle bands go, the EP came in third, behind Fleet Foxes and The Head and the Heart. In December, National Public Radio named Pickwick among “5 Artists You Should Know in 2011” as part of a review of the year in music. One thing Parker has noticed as a result of all this newfound attention is the age diversity of Pickwick’s audiences. “It was a little weird to see people the same age as my mom and dad,” said Parker, who’s in his 20s. “But at the same time, it’s an honor … if they can connect with what we’re doing, I’m all about it. I think it’s great. “Music really is supposed to be something that brings people together regardless of age or race or economic status. It should be something that unites people. For me, it’s really exciting to see something like age not be a factor in who appreciates our music.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349, djasper@bendbulletin.com

Matt Hopper returns to Bend

BEND

967 NW BROOKS STREET, BEND OREGON • WWW.PINETAVERN.COM

n the “Press” section of Matt Hopper’s website, there’s a quote from a music writer who calls the Alaska/Idaho-based singer-songwriter “one of the Northwest’s best-kept secrets.” OK, OK … it’s me. I said that. And I stand by it fully. The first time I saw Hopper at Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom in April 2009, I felt he had the goods to break out beyond the regional touring circuit he’d been traveling for years. His songs are muscular slabs of hooky soul-pop and earthy folkrock, and live, his swagger and charisma is like a tractor beam. Even in a small club, Hopper looks like a rock star.

There are signs Hopper’s perseverance is paying off; he spent much of November on his first tour of Europe, and his most recent album, “Jersey Fingers,” drew some rave reviews. On Saturday, he’ll return to Silver Moon in Bend, where local crooner Eric Tollefson — who is looking at a spring release of his own excellent new album — will open the show.

Feeding Frenzy hits The Horned Hand The Horned Hand is becoming quite the hotspot for leftof-center folk and Americana music, isn’t it? For the past month or so, off-kilter acoustic-ish bands have been stopping in a few times a week, it seems. Tonight, the band is Feeding Frenzy, a folk group from way up north in Fairbanks, Alaska. They formed in early 2010 and by last spring, were already making a splash at the giant and influential SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, thanks to their woozy string-band jams and cozy harmonies. Feeding Frenzy’s primary sound is a swaying, mellow mix of ramshackle American folk, swooping orchestral pop and Eastern European sounds that’s quite easy on the ears. Check ’em out at www.feeding frenzy.bandcamp.com. Feeding Frenzy, with Blackflowers Blacksun; 8 tonight; $5; The Horned Hand, 507 N.W. Colorado Ave., Bend; www.reverbnation .com/venue/thehornedhand.

A new album from The Selfless Riot We’re not even a week into the new year, and already local bands are dropping new recordings left and right. On Jan. 1, Bend-based dance-rock trio All You All released its “Fluorescence” EP online, and it’s a solid listen. Find it at allyouall.bandcamp .com. And tonight, local alt-acoustic trio The Selfless Riot will celebrate its new eight-song album, “These Times Of Our Lives,” with a free show at Green Plow Coffee Roasters in

Redmond. The band’s lineup includes Jordan Meeks (vocals/guitar), Trevor Blake (keys/vocals), and Sawyer Lowe (guitar/mandolin).

Anthony Hamilton “BACK TO LOVE” RCA Records Anthony Hamilton has a voice equally fit for soothing or supplication, and he finds time for both on his steadily engaging, rarely surprising new album, “Back to Love,” which is just what you want from him and just what he wants to give you. As an R&B singer upholding a distinctly grown-up masculine ideal — chivalry and constancy, strength and humility — he’s in the business of meeting expectations. So you’ll find him

singing here in an imploringly mellow style, his tone conveying the deep-amber viscosity of something you’d pour over your pancakes. He sounds marvelous. And it would be disingenuous to ignore the role that stability, in both the musical and personal sense, plays in his work. Hamilton is 40, married with a family; he’s also unfettered by any track record of lecherous club hits. “Back to Love” might seem to suggest a prodigal’s return to form, but it really refers to its title track, in which Hamilton, working an earthy falsetto, lays out a rich premise from the start: “Here we are, in the storm of our lives/ Both posing as strangers who never fell in love.” Behind the album’s thematic consistency is a sort of stealth eclecticism. Its 12 tracks, all partly written by Hamilton, range in tone and texture from earthy Southern soul to lissome 1990sstyle R&B, with beats that nod toward hip-hop. — Nate Chinen, The New York Times

Jonsi “WE BOUGHT A ZOO” SOUNDTRACK Columbia Records Iceland’s Sigur Ros has been obsessed with swirling atmospheric noises for almost 17 years, peaking with 1999’s soothing 10-minute falsetto-fest “Svefn-G-Englar.” Led by front man Jonsi, who started putting out his own albums last year, the band didn’t make songs so much as create soundtrack music for spacey films that had yet to exist. Filmmaker Cameron Crowe picked up on this quality a decade ago, using three Sigur Ros songs in the background of his 2001 film “Vanilla Sky.” For Crowe’s upcoming flick, “We Bought a Zoo,” the “Almost Famous” and “Singles” director expands Jonsi’s presence, employing Sigur Ros’ strong “Hoppipolla,” four retreads from the singer’s not-bad 2010 album “Go,” two new tracks and a bunch of new-agey background music for the score. We haven’t seen the film, so we’ll give mood-shifting instru-

Young Jeezy “THUG MOTIVATION 103: HUSTLERZ AMBITION” Def Jam Recordings Hopelessly out of step with woozy swag rap and Auto-Tune, the usually monotonous and overpraised Jeezy sounds surprisingly sturdy on his fourth album. “Thug Motivation 103” delivers the reliable bawdiness and mildly exciting beats of a good, boilerplate rap album. But

Charlotte Gainsbourg “STAGE WHISPER” Elektra Records Charlotte Gainsbourg has wielded two double-edged swords throughout her musical career. The first is her success as a film actress, which stretches back to her childhood and more recently involves professional antagonist Lars von Trier. The second is her birthright as the daughter of Serge Gainsbourg, the shrewdly mischievous French musical polymath, and Jane Birkin, the smoldering British actress and singer. As a result of these legacies, Gainsbourg has enjoyed unfair advantages and elicited unfair judgment, which complicates

Nero

mentals a pass, despite their Enya-like tendencies — sometimes, that sort of thing works really well on-screen. One of Jonsi’s new songs, “Aevin Endar,” is a vocal-and-piano throwaway, not much use for home listening. But the most successful marriage of Sigur Ros’ melodramatic tendencies with natural movie-style drama is the other new track, “Gathering Stories,” co-written by Crowe and Jonsi (who rarely collaborates). It has an endearing “woo-woo” chorus, and builds from muted hymns to timpani trills and symphonic climaxes.

Jeezy is nowhere near arresting enough as a rapper to justify the 80-minute running time. Don’t need most of the second half (what’s Jill Scott doing here?) or the disappointing singles (why did Plies get on a better beat than Jay-Z, Andre 3000 or T.I.?). Freddie Gibbs and Lil Wayne almost save this hustler’s overambition, but what he really needs is an editor.

“WELCOME REALITY” Interscope Records The British DJ-producers who concocted dubstep over the past decade have watched from afar as America suddenly discovered what irregular jolts of deep, wobbly bass can do to a dance floor. American dubstep, which trades the ominous hollows and slithering undercurrents of the British version for a kind of exuberant rope-a-dope assault, is having its bandwagon moment here; Skrillex, its most visible figure, was just nominated for a Grammy award as best new artist. In the meantime, Britons are already talking about post-dubstep. For Nero — the London production duo Dan Stephens and Joe Ray, regularly joined by singer Alana Watson — that means

perceptions of her work. “Stage Whisper” isn’t likely to fix any of that. But it’s a checkmark in the right column, strengthening her foothold and identity as an artist. A little more than half the album consists of material recorded during a 2010

transplanting dubstep from club set to album sequence and from the onetime thrills of the dance floor to the melodies and repeatability of pop. “Welcome Reality” does exactly that without losing dubstep’s implacable core. At least most of the time. “Welcome Reality” is nearly as nostalgic as it is futuristic. The music flaunts vintage synthesizers and echoes of dancemusic past: the raw swoops of early-1990s rave, the arpeggios of synth-pop, the string-section jabs of disco, even some 1980s rock-anthem guitar. Late in the album “Reaching Out” suddenly features a familiar voice: none other than Daryl Hall. But the old sounds are no refuge from dubstep, with its sudden switches into a viscous half-speed and its falling-through-a-trapdoor bass lines.

European tour, with songs drawn from Gainsbourg’s recent albums “IRM” and “5:55.” Then there are eight new tracks, mostly an overspill from the “IRM” sessions, which were produced by Beck. Beck’s fingerprints are all over the first four studio tracks on “Stage Whisper,” as they were throughout “IRM.” A couple of those songs, “Paradisco” and “All the Rain,” feel like reheated leftovers; the others work marvelously. “White Telephone” suggests a chamber-pop gloss on existentialism, while “Terrible Angels” has Gainsbourg singing imperturbably over distorted electronics. Either song would be a good next step. — Nate Chinen, The New York Times

Even the album’s tackiest track — “Crush on You,” emulating the staccato synthesizers and chirpy vocals of early Madonna — has to contend with a proudly intrusive distorted bass line. “Welcome Reality” pulls dubstep toward the arena-pop spotlight without leaving its shadows behind. — Jon Pareles, The New York Times

CULT FILM QUIZ! By Ben Salmon • The Bulletin

A year ago, when Bend’s Tower Theatre screened the 1998 cult classic film “The Big Lebowski,” it was a “huge hit,” according to Tower Theatre Foundation Executive Director Ray Solley. The screening was a sort of celluloid mecca for local disciples of The Dude. It was also part of a growing number of “event films” to show at the Tower, including singalongs to “The Wizard of Oz” and “The Sound of Music,” and annual Halloween showings of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” that

date back to 2008. “The refurbished 1940 movie theater is a great place to see memorable movies in informal elegance,” Solley said. “Like a really big living room with a huge screen, good beer and great sound.” Also: Other, like-minded people. After all, watching a favorite movie is fun, but watching a favorite movie with a few hundred other people who love it too, who get dressed up like the characters, who’ve memorized every line … well, that’s a celebration of art and how it brings us together.

The Tower has three such cinematic celebrations planned over the next four Saturdays, beginning with “Pink Floyd: The Wall” this weekend, and followed by “This Is Spinal Tap” on Jan. 14 and “The Big Lebowski” on Jan. 28. To prep you for what we’re calling Cult Classic Movie Month, we’ve put together a little quiz about the three flicks to make sure you can keep ’em straight. What’s that?

Streaming now represents 14 percent of Xbox 360 time, 15 percent of PS3 time and 33 percent of time spent on the Wii, according to an October survey. The growth is due to the availability of services like Netflix, Hulu, MLB Network and ESPN3, Nielsen said, also noting that the total time spent using game consoles in general is up 7 percent compared with last year. Nielsen also found that although all three game systems are seeing more streaming, each enjoys a unique niche majorities, with the Xbox 360 most notable for online gaming (34 percent of use), the PlayStation 3 most notable for DVD and Blu-Ray viewing (22 percent) and the Wii king of offline gaming at 55 percent of use. Still, the growing impact and future potential of streaming online video can’t be underestimated.

Lincoln

• One-man show at Greenwood Playhouse takes a look at life of Abraham Lincoln By David Jasper The Bulletin

T

welve years ago, Steve Holgate was doing diplomatic work with the U.S. Department of State. He was looking for something meaningful to do in retirement. “Frankly, I was homesick for Oregon,” Holgate, originally from Tigard, said by phone last week from his home in Beaverton. “They let us retire at 50 with 20 years in, and it’s about as late as you want to start your life over again and have any hopes of doing something (new).” Several signs pointed toward writing and acting in a one-man show about the life of our 16th president. “I thought, ‘I used to enjoy theater, but it’s sometimes hard to break in with a local company.’ Well, if I wrote my own one-man play, they couldn’t very well tell me I couldn’t do it. And so I thought, ‘Well, who would I do it on?’ and a lot of people told me, for better or worse, that I looked like Abraham Lincoln.” Continued next p ag e

That Gallery Walk time of month Let there be no doubt: There is a First Friday Gallery Walk in January. Even though the Bend Gallery Association holds the event 12 months a year, there appears to be some confusion among the public as to whether or not the event is held in January. “The only time we didn’t have First Friday in January was when it fell on New Year’s Day,” Susan Higdon of Tumalo Art Co. told GO! Magazine in a recent email. “January can be a bit slower but is still a great time to see art at all the Bend galleries.” So tonight from 5 to 9 p.m., gallery visitors can take in art, wine and finger foods at galleries around Bend, including Tumalo Art Co., 450 S.W. Powerhouse Drive, No. 407, which is holding the “Tiny Treasure” show, featuring small works by more than 20 artists. Red Chair Gallery, 103 Oregon Ave., will open the show “Cool Art,” featuring Blue Spruce Pottery’s Patrick and Melissa Woodman, fiber arts by Denise Mahoney, and acrylics from Dee McBrienLee’s “Americana” series.

coln looked pretty bad the last year or so. I don’t look that old yet; I color my hair, though.” That striving for a realistic touch isn’t limited to his look. “He’s so important to us that I can’t play it false. I’ve gotta find the truth here,” Holgate said. “It sounds trite, but it’s a real honor, it’s a real responsibility to play Lincoln.” Holgate believes there’s a hunger for Lincoln in the U.S., a particularly strong one in trying times. “He is perhaps the greatest of all Americans. Even if in your judgment he isn’t quite there, he’s among the greatest. And he speaks to us about who we are in difficult times — at least who we are at our best. And so when we are in challenging times, such as this, Lincoln becomes kind of more important to us.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349, djasper@bendbulletin.com

tion about it, but these were overwhelming times.” The running time of the play is about an hour and a half, not counting intermission, with the first act taking up the first hour, and the second act clocking in at 30 minutes. After Holgate’s successful performance of the play at the Coast Theatre in Cannon Beach last spring, he returned for a second engagement in October. But Holgate admits he comes up a bit short in his re-creation of Lincoln. “I’m just a touch shorter.” Lincoln stood almost 6-foot-4, whereas Holgate’s a hair under 6-foot-3. “Just like him, I’m kind of skinny as a rail, and not over-handsome,” he said with a laugh. “Nobody’s ever accused me of that.” At 59, he’s outlived Lincoln. “Luckily for me, with the strains of office, Lin-

From previous page Though self-described as “a huge Civil War buff,” Holgate said he didn’t know a great deal about the life of Lincoln, at least not then. He began researching Lincoln’s life and gained a far better understanding “of the context in which he was president. You really have to remember that there was a civil war going on,” he said. “Tremendous, tremendous burdens on him. He put it himself very really well: ‘I have not controlled events. I confess to you freely, events have controlled me.’” Holgate found himself so engrossed by the stuff of Lincoln’s life that the research went quickly. He completed his one-man play “A. Lincoln” a full three years before retirement, and Holgate was able to hone and refine his portrayal, performing it during postings in Mexico, Sri Lanka and Bahrain. “Lincoln, I discovered, is really a universal character. People overseas know who Abraham Lincoln is. They may be a little short on details, but they really know who he is,” the 59-year-old said. “It’s heartwarming.” Local audiences will get the opportunity to become better acquainted with Lincoln beginning Saturday, when Holgate brings “A. Lincoln” to the Greenwood Playhouse in Bend for two performances (see “If you go”). “There are two themes to the play, as I see it, and one is Lincoln’s evolution as a leader and on questions of race,” Holgate said. People often expect perfection from Lincoln, but “he (said) some things about race that we’re not very comfortable with.” As time went on, “he evolved, too, and his understanding was greater.” The other theme is Lincoln’s “redemption through suffering,” Holgate said. “He suffered terribly during the war,” he said. “I have to bring some of that out. I use some of his jokes and there are some light moments, but these were not easy times.” “We see him as a great leader, which he was. We see a man of great heart and great intellect. (But) he also was simply one who had to cope with things as he found them. And did that better than those around him. He helped shape those events, no ques-

Something to crow about

P ete Erick son / The Bulletin

T h e R e d R ooster Restaurant and Omelet H ouse offers spacious dining on Redmond’s north end.

• Redmond’s Red Rooster Restaurant serves 38 kinds of omelets By John Gottberg Anderson For The Bulletin

R

edmond’s new Red Rooster Restaurant and Omelet House advertises itself as the “best value in Central Oregon.” I’m not going to declare that to be true or false. But in three recent visits to this family-style restaurant, there’s no doubt I got plenty of food for prices I considered more than fair. Now, the food wasn’t always great. In fact, I’d rate the quality of cuisine about 50-50; although half the time it was pretty darn

good, the other half was far from palatable. I even sent a dinner entree back because it was so badly overcooked. Still, the ambience is pleasant and the service I’ve received has been consistently excellent. For a three-meals-a-day motel restaurant — it sits next to the Sleep Inn, across Sixth Street from Walmart at the north end of Redmond — the Red Rooster is better than most of its ilk, despite its shortcomings. The Red Rooster opened in August, replacing Chloe at North Redmond Station, a casual finedining establishment that never

really hit its stride as it moved between three Central Oregon locations, beginning in 2007. Brad Johnson is the owner of the Red Rooster restaurant group that, so far, is a group of one. (Restaurants of the same name in La Pine and Klamath Falls are unrelated.) According to general manager Jim Kuava, a second Red Rooster is planned in Bend for the early spring, with expectations that others will follow. “We’re looking at two or three locations,” Kuava said. Continued next p age

Scorecard OVERALL: B Food: C+. Breakfast is better than lunch and dinner, some of which may seriously disappoint. Service: A. Friendly, cheerful and efficient; servers go the extra mile for patrons. Atmosphere: B. Dining room is handsome but understated, with murals and red-rooster motif. Value: A. Portions are generous, prices extremely reasonable.


Cock-a-doodle-doo Certainly, the red rooster is prominent inside and out at the Redmond store. Most prominent is the one that stands above an indoor rock fountain, beside a colorful farm-scape pastel mural that also depicts the cock-a-doodling barnyard fowl. Other sculpted chickens sit atop a dividing wall that splits the spacious dining room in two. The main room, handsome if understated, seats about 120 guests at 15 booths and 10 tables beneath hanging lamps. There are more seats in a rear coffee bar (no alcohol is served). Large windows look out at the motel and highway. Easy-listening music — Christmas tunes on my first visit, classic country (Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn) on my second — plays in the background. I appreciate the level of service at the Red Rooster. Each time I stepped through the double doors of the restaurant, I felt well attended. Without exception, the staff of men and women servers, all dressed in bright red shirts and black pants, were friendly, cheerful and efficient. On each visit, I was greeted promptly, seated and presented the menu on oversized, laminated pages, along with water served in a mason jar. My order was quickly taken and delivered. And even when I returned my entree, it was removed without question. When I ordered a lessexpensive entree as a replacement, I was charged only for the second dish.

Breakfast fare The Red Rooster calls itself an omelet house, with 38 omelets and numerous other egg and pancake dishes on a breakfast menu that is served all day. It would have been irresponsible for me not to order an omelet. “Our big thing is our omelets,” Kuava assured me. “We do everything from scratch.” I chose the Cowboy Special. According to the menu, “folks come from far and near for this one!” Indeed, I haven’t

seen an omelet this large in years. I suggested to my server that there must have been a half-dozen eggs in it, but he corrected me. “Typically, our omelets have eight or nine eggs,” he said. Bits of mushrooms and onions were cooked into the omelet with the eggs. They were folded around a generous scoop of homemade chili with ground beef, beans, stewed tomatoes and melted cheddar cheese. At $7.99, the portion was more than I could eat. I also enjoyed the accompanying breakfast potatoes, just called “spuds.” They were sliced and pan-fried to be crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. A choice of buttered toast with packaged jam came on the side.

Lunch and dinner My lunch and dinner experiences were not so satisfying. The corned beef in a Reuben sandwich, served on lightly toasted (not grilled) marbled rye, was lean but far from tender. A layer of sauerkraut was tossed with a modest amount of Russian dressing. Slices of processed Swiss cheese were only slightly melted on each piece of toast. Dinner service begins at 4 p.m. My starting salad was made of fresh iceberg lettuce with slivers of red cabbage and carrots, three pear tomatoes and a half-dozen house-made croutons. Honey-mustard dressing came on the side. At my server’s suggestion, I ordered rosemary chicken, a full half bird “slow-roasted to perfection,” the menu said. I’m sure it was slow-roasted, but it was far from perfect. The skin, in fact, was charred well past golden-brown. A drumstick was still moist inside, but when I couldn’t even cut into the breast with my knife, I asked that the dish be replaced. The nightly special was meat-

loaf, and while hardly gourmet, it wasn’t bad. Two thick slices of meat were blended with onions, celery and red peppers, and served with a rich, brown mushroom gravy. I kept the sides served with my chicken. A medley of vegetables — carrots, cauliflower and broccoli — were fresh and perfectly cooked, retaining just a touch of crunch. They were presented unseasoned, allowing me to determine my quotient of salt and pepper. A “loaded” baked potato came with sour cream, real bacon bits and shredded cheddar.

Debunking duo • ‘MythBusters’ live show arrives at Portland’s Keller Auditorium By Jenny Wasson The Bulletin

R

emember kids: Don’t try this at home. Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are what they call experts. For the past nine seasons, the co-hosts of the Discovery Channel’s popular “MythBusters” series have been using their “unique style of explosive experimentation” to debunk hundreds of urban legends, according to a news release. Now, Hyneman and Savage are taking their myths on the road with an all-new live show called “MythBusters: Behind the Myths.” The duo will perform two shows Jan. 21 at Keller Auditorium in Portland. With a background in special effects and stage props, Hyneman and Savage launched “MythBusters” in 2003. In each episode, the “MythBusters” team examines several myths, from viral Internet videos and movie scenes to common idioms and phrases. The myths are rated “confirmed,” “plausible” or “busted.” Presented for the first time on stage, the live show “promises to be an unexpected evening of on-stage experiments, audience participation, rocking video and behind-the-scenes stories,” according to promoters. The Portland show is part of a 28-city national tour. The tour kicks off tonight in Modesto, Calif. “MythBusters: Behind the Myths” runs at 4 and 8 p.m. Jan. 21. It is family friendly and appropriate for all ages. Ticket prices range from $35 to $60, depending on seat location. To purchase tickets, visit www.ticketmaster .com or call 800-745-3000. — Reporter: 541-383-0350, jwasson@bendbulletin.com

G ar y O l d m a n s tars as George Smiley in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.”

‘Tinker Tailor’ is a realistic thriller Y

es, we imagine, international espionage is probably pretty much like this. No thrilling car chases and no big action sections, but rather a series of weary men, smoking and drinking tea or whisky, in a series of conversations that circle an enigma. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” is about the search for a high-level Soviet spy within MI6, the British intelligence service. This mole is not to be found in an exotic location, but seems more than likely to be one of the men in the room. The movie is based on John le Carre’s 1974 novel, which redefined modern spy fiction and inspired an ambitious 1979 BBC

adaptation. There was reason to believe le Carre knew his subject. In the real world, where his real name is David Cornwell, he was one of the British spies who were

betrayed by Kim Philby, the notorious MI6 operative who was a double agent for the Soviets. In the fictional version, MI6 is headed by Control (John Hurt), who studies a series of intelligence leaks and becomes convinced there’s a mole in the agency; the nature of the intelligence suggests it must come from high up, and Control narrows his list of suspects to five men close to him. The movie introduces them one by one, each played by a familiar face in a film cast with iconic British actors. “Tinker” is Percy Alleline (Toby Jones), “Tailor” is Bill Haydon (Colin Firth), “Soldier” is Roy Bland (Ciaran Hinds), “Poor Man” is Toby Esterhase (David

Dencik), and “Beggarman” is George Smiley (Gary Oldman), Control’s trusted lieutenant. If you’re wondering what happened to “Spy,” that would be whoever turns out to be the mole. The film, set mostly in London in the early 1970s, is bathed in browns, shadows and pale lighting. All of the men show a lot of wear, none more than Control; John Hurt’s face is weary and deeply lined; his eyes set deep out of the way of cigarette smoke. But lest you think that is entirely because of aging, I interviewed him in 1984 while he was filming “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” and he looked much the same then. As the film opens, he has

learned that a Hungarian general who would know the mole’s identity may be a possible defector. In a muted, serious conversation that will set the tone for the film, he assigns Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) to go to Budapest and talk to this man. That mission goes wrong, and serves to alert the Soviets — although the mole would already know Control was engaged in sniffing him out. In the kerfuffle that follows, both Control and Smiley are dismissed from the service. Some time later, Control is dead from a heart attack and Smiley is recalled from “retirement” to continue the search for the mole. Continued next page

‘Into the Abyss’ is a sad tale • Werner Herzog’s documentary about the death penalty in Texas is heartfelt and detailed

“I

nto the Abyss: A Tale of Death, a Tale of Life” may be the saddest film Werner Herzog has ever made. It regards a group of miserable lives, and in finding a few faint glimmers of hope only underlines the sadness. The documentary centers on two young men in prison. Michael Perry is on death row in Huntsville, Texas, America’s most productive assembly line for executions, and on the day Herzog spoke with him, Perry had eight days to live. Jason Burkett, his accomplice in the stupid murders of three people, is serving a 40-year sentence. They killed because they wanted to drive a friend’s red Camaro. Herzog opposes the death penalty, which America is the only developed nation still imposing. But the film isn’t a polemic. Herzog became curious about the case, took a small crew to Huntsville and Conroe, Texas, where the murders took place, and spoke to the killers, members of their families and those of their victims. He obtains interviews of startling honesty and impact. I’ve learned that he met his subjects only once, on the day of the interviews, and the film presents their first conversations. I’ve long felt something about Herzog’s personality is compelling and penetrating, and in evidence I could offer this film about Texans who are so different from the West German director. Herzog keeps a much lower profile than in many of his documentaries. He is not seen, and his off-camera voice quietly asks questions that are factual, understated and simply curious. His subjects talk willingly. He asks

difficult follow-up questions. He is not very interested in the facts (there is no doubt about guilt here), but in looking into the eyes and souls of people who were directly involved. Why did Perry die and not Burkett, when both were convicted for the same crimes? We meet Burkett’s father, Delbert, who is also in prison serving a life sentence. In his testimony at his son’s trial, he blamed himself for the boy’s worthless upbringing. This apparently influenced two women jurors to pity the boy — or perhaps identify with the father. Delbert seems today a decent and reflective man. He bitterly regrets that he failed to take advantage of a college scholarship, dropped out of high school not long before graduation, and went wrong. He sees his mistake clearly now — too late for himself, too late for his son. Perry and Burkett are uneducated, rootless, callow, lacking in personal resources. Delbert perhaps has benefited from life in prison, as his son may. We

From previous page Now follows a series of paranoid meetings in sealed rooms, snatched conversations in obscure corners of London, and flashbacks that may cast light on Smiley’s investigation, although we cannot yet know for sure. All of this is superbly atmospheric in the hands of director Tomas Alfredson, who made the sober

and effective vampire movie “Let the Right One In.” His camera is implacable, its moves sinister; the rooms are filled with smoke and fear, and the characters warily circle around — well, each other, really. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” looks, sounds and feels exactly right. Alfredson’s film is faithful to the tone set by the novel.

Michael Perry was executed shortly after filming the documentary “Into the Abyss.”

meet Melyssa Burkett, who married Jason Burkett in prison and is now pregnant with his child — although, as Herzog observes, conjugal visits were not allowed. How did she become pregnant? She did, that’s all. Herzog never sensationalizes, never underlines, expresses no opinions. He listens. We also meet Capt. Fred Allen, who was for many years in charge of the guard detail on

Huntsville’s death row, including the years in which George Bush turned down one appeal after another. He starts talking with Herzog and is swept up by memory and emotion, explaining why one day he simply walked away from his job and decided, after overseeing more than 100 executions, that he was opposed to the death penalty. What he has to say about one crucial event in his life is one of the most profound statements I can imagine about the death penalty. The people in this film, without exception, cite God as a force in their lives. The killers, their relatives, the relatives of their victims, the police, everyone. God has a plan. It is all God’s will.

God will forgive. Their lives are in His hands. They must accept the will of the Lord. Condemned or bereft, guilty or heartbroken, they all apparently find comfort in God’s plan. What Herzog concludes about their faith he does not say. Opposition to the death penalty, in part, comes down to this: No one deserves to be assigned the task of executing another person. I think that’s what Capt. Allen is saying. Herzog may agree, although he doesn’t say so. In some of his films he freely shares his philosophy and insights. In this film, he simply looks. He always seems to know where to look.

But the screenplay, by Bridget O’Connor and Peter Straughan, is not a model of clarity. I confess I was confused some of the time and lost at other times; the viewer needs to hold in mind a large number of characters, a larger number of events, and an infinite number of possibilities. More ordinary spy movies provide helpful scenes in which

characters brief each other as a device to keep the audience oriented. I have every confidence that in this film every piece of information is there and flawlessly meshes, but I can’t say so for sure, perhaps because I don’t have a mind suitable for espionage. I enjoyed the look and feel of the film, the perfectly modulated performances, and

the whole tawdry world of spy and counterspy, which must be among the world’s most dispiriting occupations. But I became increasingly aware that I didn’t always follow all the allusions and connections. On that level, it didn’t work for me.

(Werner) Herzog keeps a much lower profile than in many of his documentaries.

WHAT’S NEW “The Devil Inside” — Twenty years after her mother confessed to three brutal murders, a woman travels to Italy and recruits two young exorcists to find out what really happened and set things right. With Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth. Written by William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman. Directed by Bell. This film was not screened in advance for critics. 87 minutes. (R) — Los Angeles Times

“Into the Abyss: A Tale of Death, a Tale of Life” — The saddest film Werner Herzog has ever made. It regards a group of miserable lives, and in finding a few faint glimmers of hope only underlines the sadness. He interviews two young men convicted of killing three people. One has now been executed. The other is serving a life sentence. There’s no doubt they are guilty. Why was one life spared? The answer to that and many other questions lead Herzog into a profound and troubling exploration of the wasted lives of these unformed people. A great film. Rating: Four stars. 107 minutes. (PG-13) “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” — Based on the influential 1974 novel by John le Carre, the labyrinthine story of a search for a highly placed Soviet mole in the upper reaches of MI6, the British intelligence service. Control (John Hurt) and his trusted aide, George Smiley (Gary Oldham), are “retired” after a mission in Hungary goes bad, but Smiley is later recalled to continue the investigation from outside the agency.

First-rate cast including Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Ciaran Hinds. Directed by Tomas Alfredson (“Let the Right One In”). Rating: Three stars. 127 minutes. (R)

STILL SHOWING “The Adventures of Tintin” — Steven Spielberg’s lively 3-D adventure was inspired by the popularity of the comic book hero Tintin. He’s successful in bringing the artistry of Herge, Tintin’s creator, into a third dimension and evoking the charm of the original, although there’s more violence than you might expect. The tale involves a search for a lost treasure. Providing voice and motion-capture performances are Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Toby Jones. This film is available locally in 3-D and IMAX. Rating: Three and a half stars. 107 minutes. (PG) “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” — A Sarah Palin joke? A Charlie Sheen wisecrack? Is this a Chipmunks movie or a Letterman monologue? As current as a Lady Gaga cover, if not quite as relevant, Alvin and the Chipmunks “Munk Up” for their third digitally animated turn on the big screen — “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” a “Cast Away” take-off that parks the three chipmunks, their three Chipette counterparts and their human family on a deserted island. Most adults would sooner gouge their ears out than sit through these kids’ films. But for captive parents in need of a reference point, “Chipwrecked” is twice as funny at their

last film, 2009’s “The Squeakquel.” And the return of Jason Lee as Dave Seville, the rodent wrangler who keeps our popsinging ground squirrels in line, gives the picture a hint of the heart that made 2007’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks” work, at least for its intended audience. Rating: One and a half stars. 87 minutes. (G) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“The Darkest Hour” — Working from a story that has been knocking around for years, screenwriter Jon Spaihts and his director, Chris Gorak, send two Internet entrepreneurs (Emile Hirsch and Max Minghella) to Moscow to finish a business deal. When they learn that a Swedish opportunist (Joel Kinnaman) has stolen their idea, our lads head to a nightclub to lick their wounds and distract themselves with perky female tourists (namely Olivia Thirlby and Rachael Taylor). There the four — and the scheming Swede — will remain for the next few days as fireballs from outer space transform most of humanity into untidy piles of cremains. Despite a title grandiosely borrowed from Winston Churchill, “The Darkest Hour” is yet another depressing failure of imagination. “The Darkest Hour” is available locally in 3-D. This film was not given a star rating. 89 minutes. (PG-13) — Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“The Descendants” — One of George Clooney’s best performances, as a member of one of the old landowning families of Hawaii, whose wife is in a coma after a boating accident, and who must deal with family pressure to sell off a vast tract of virgin forest for commercial development. At the same time, having essentially left the raising of his family

to his wife, he now finds himself as a single dad, raising Alexandra (Shailene Woodley) and Scottie (Amara Miller). With strong support from Nick Krause, Beau Bridges, Robert Forster, Judy Greer and Matthew Lillard. Another great film by Alexander Payne (“Sideways”). Rating: Four stars. 115 minutes. (R) “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” — David Fincher’s American remake of the popular 2009 thriller, based on the first of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy of best sellers. Rooney Mara stars effectively as the troubled Lisbeth Salander, a Goth girl who teams with an investigative journalist (Daniel Craig) to solve a 40-year-old murder case. They find themselves deep in the secrets of a corrupt family. Rating: Three and a half stars. 158 minutes. (R) “Hugo” — Unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget 3-D family epic, and in some ways a mirror of his own life. The young hero (Asa Butterfield) lives secretly in a cavernous Parisian train station, where his late father maintained the clockworks. Now he maintains the clocks and dreams of completing his father’s project, a mechanical man. With Chloe Grace Moretz as a young girl also living in the station; Ben Kingsley as her guardian, a toy shop owner; Sacha Baron Cohen as the Station Inspector and Jude Law as Hugo’s father. A great artist has been given command of all the tools and resources he needs to make a family movie about — movies. The use of 3-D is controlled and effective. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Four stars. 130 minutes. (PG)

The child explores the blockedoff lower areas of the house, where there is a grate covering a fireplace flue from which emerge whispers and rustlings. Things live in there. They like to eat the

Blu-ray Extras: Additional featurette. Rating: Three stars. 99 minutes. (R) “The Guard” — Brendan Gleeson is wonderful as an Irish cop with shaky standards; he steals drugs from accident victims, parties with hookers and deals in graft. But he loves his mother. Partnered against his will on a big drug case with an FBI agent (Don Cheadle), he rises to the occasion, but not before much dialogue of sly wit. A rich human comedy with a gripping ending and much humor along the way. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Four featurettes, deleted/extended scenes, outtakes and audio commentary. Rating: Three and a half stars. 95 minutes. (R) ALSO OUT THIS WEEK: “I Don’t Know How She Does It” COMING UP: Movies scheduled for national release on Jan. 10 include “Killer Elite,” “Higher Ground” and “Moneyball” Check with local video stores for availability.

The Who’s

From previous page “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” —Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt in a terrific entry in the long-running franchise, which centers on the MI team’s attempt to stop a snaky genius from starting a nuclear war. Astonishing action sequences, including one with Ethan climbing the side of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building. With Jeremy Renner as Brandt, an “analyst” with a gift for action, Simon Pegg as the goofy and petulant computer genius Benji, and Paula Patton as beautiful and competent team member Jane. Very capably directed by Brad Bird, who usually does animation (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”). This film is available locally in IMAX. Rating: Three and a half stars. 132 minutes. (PG-13) “The Muppets” — The Muppets have retired and almost been forgotten, when Walter, his human pal, Gary (Jason Segel), and Gary’s girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), take a trip to visit the old Muppet Studios. They find them derelict, threatened by a millionaire who wants to level the ground and drill for oil. So, yes, hey, kids! Let’s put on a show! The Muppets and some human friends stage a telethon to save the studios. This is a funny and wickedly self-aware musical that explains by its very premise why some younger viewers may not be up-to-date on Muppet lore. Rating: Three stars. 98 minutes. (PG) “My Week With Marilyn” — Based on the diaries of a young man named Colin Clark, who talked his way into a lowly job on a Marilyn Monroe movie. For one troubled week, while her husband, the playwright Arthur Miller, was absent in Paris, she asked the worshipful 23year-old kid to join her at a hideaway cottage. She was 30. They were alone. One night they went skinny-dipping in the moonlight. That’s about it. It wasn’t

about sex. It was about her gift of her wonderfulness to a kid who stirred her sympathy. Michelle Williams evokes all the Marilyns, public and private, real and make-believe. Rating: Three and a half stars. 101 minutes. (R) “New Year’s Eve” — How is it possible to assemble more than two dozen stars in a movie and find nothing interesting for any of them to do? What sins did poor Hilary Swank commit that after winning two Oscars she has to play the role of the woman in charge of the New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square? And if you don’t think there’s dialogue about getting her ball to drop, you’re barking up the wrong movie. Rating: One star. 118 minutes. (PG-13) “Puss in Boots” — DreamWorks’ cunning casting of the silky Spaniard Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling Puss in Boots pays off, brilliantly, in “Puss in Boots,” a star vehicle for the nursery rhyme kitty cat from the “Shrek” movies. Thanks to Banderas and his Corinthian-leather purr and writers who know how to use it, “Puss” is the best animated film of 2011. This is no mere “Shrek” sequel. There is sex appeal in every syllable, swagger in every line. And even kids get the joke of a voice that sensual and grand coming out of a kitty so small. Rating: Three and a half stars. 89 minutes. (PG) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“Real Steel” — The film imagines a near future when human boxers have been replaced by robots. Hugh Jackman stars as a former boxer who is hanging onto the fringes of the fight game by touring with ramshackle robots. Forced to spend the summer with his son (Dakota Goyo), he allows himself to be convinced to work on a junkyard robot named Atom, who becomes a popular underdog. The fight

scenes are superbly choreographed, and the film is surprisingly entertaining — especially, probably, for younger viewers. Rating: Three stars. 126 minutes. (PG-13) “The Rum Diary” — Inspired by a little-known early novel by Hunter S. Thompson, the film’s hero (Johnny Depp) is young, alcoholic and working as a newspaper reporter in San Juan, Puerto Rico. A rich cast of supporting characters includes Richard Jenkins as his long-suffering editor, Michael Rispoli as a raffish photographer, Giovanni Ribisi as a rum-soaked former reporter, Aaron Eckhart as a corrupt land speculator and Amber Heard as his mistress, who is offered to Depp as a bribe. The materials for rich comedy, but the lead character’s alcoholic haze slows things down and fogs them in. Rating: Two and a half stars. 119 minutes. (R) “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” — Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are Holmes and Watson, teaming again with director Guy Ritchie in a sequel to their 2009 hit. Holmes’ archenemy, professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), figures heavily in an anarchist plot to bring war to Europe. It’s much more of an action picture than work in the Sherlockian tradition, but it’s great fun. With Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Rating: Three and a half stars. 129 minutes. (PG-13) “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” — After defending her virginity for the previous three movies in the series, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) allows the vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) to take her to the altar, after which they have an idyllic Brazilian honeymoon and she quickly gets preggers, leading to distressing problems. Absorbing, if somewhat slow-paced, and Stewart is affecting in her performance. But why is this film, with the most blood-curdling

scene of live childbirth in memory, rated PG-13? Rating: Two and a half stars. 117 minutes. (PG-13) “War Horse” — Steven Spielberg’s epic follows the fortunes of a handsome horse named Joey as it begins life on a farm in Devon and then finds itself embroiled on both sides of World War I. Young Jeremy Irvine stars as the farm boy who is Joey’s first and last master, and there are strong performances by Peter Mullan and Emily Watson as his parents. Battle sequences of extraordinary effect, consequences that are deeply moving, but perhaps too sentimental, especially in an ending that depends on surely impossible coincidence. Rating: Three and a half stars. 146 minutes. (PG) “We Bought a Zoo” — Matt Damon plays a newspaperman whose wife dies. He’s having trouble raising two kids and decides to move the family to a farm that includes a private zoo. Here the staff, led by Scarlett Johansson, teach him about animals and also something about life. But the animals aren’t used in a very exciting way, and the plot is mechanical. A disappointment from director Cameron Crowe (“Almost Famous”). Rating: Two and a half stars. 124 minutes. (PG) “Young Adult” — In high school, Mavis (Charlize Theron) was the ruling queen bitch. Now she’s pushing 40, still single, drinking too much, and devastated that her high school BF (Patrick Wilson) is married and just had a baby. Planning to turn back the clock, she returns to inform him he must leave his family and marry her. The only old smalltown acquaintance who’s nice to her is the misfit Matt (Patton Oswalt, in a wonderful performance). Director Jason Reitman teams with writer Diablo Cody for the first time since “Juno.” Rating: Three and a half stars. 93 minutes. (R)
