REDMOND — Redmond Police Officer Aaron Blackledge said he made one of the hardest decisions of his life two weeks ago when it became clear that retired K-9 officer Sam, a police dog, would need to be put down. “He couldn’t even lie down anymore,” Blackledge said. “It’s still hard to talk about that.” Sam passed away at 2:08 a.m. on Jan. 23. He was 11 years old and served as a patrol dog for eight years. “I had about a year and a half with him since he retired (in 2010),” Blackledge said. “At the end of his days, he was at the house playing around, jumping on the bed and hanging out with the wife and kids.” Retired police dogs spend their days about how you would imagine — long walks, playing a bit of ball and maybe getting a few more dog treats than when they’re on the job. Sam was a patrol dog, but the more honest title is probably combat dog. When a bad guy ran away, it was Sam’s job to give chase and take him down. And to watch Redmond’s K-9 officers do that in a demonstration, it’s easy to see that running from the cops is a losing proposition. So after nearly a decade of bringing suspects to the ground, it’s important to let the dog be a dog for a bit. Problem is, retired K-9 officers

don’t always forget the fun of all that chasing and biting. “He never quite let go of the idea of what he did for work,” Blackledge said. “I didn’t have to sneak out of the house ever, but when I started getting ready for work, he knew it and he let me know he wanted to come along.” Blackledge spent two years in Redmond patrolling with Sam, and in that time they were never far

apart. Handler and dog are typically within 15 feet of one another at all hours of every day. At home, at work or on vacation, the two do pretty much everything together. The German commands the handler barks out are so unique that they share a specific language not understood by most. So it shouldn’t be surprising when officers refer to losing a dog as similar to losing a child. See K-9 / A7

Accord possible in FEMA dispute • The agency was seeking repayment of wildfire prevention money it says wasn’t spent right

By Nick Grube

Bend police officers want to add more dogs to the force, and they’re hoping local citizens can help them do so. The police department recently started a fundraising campaign that aims to bolster the K-9 program with two drug dogs and a bloodhound for tracking. It’s estimated that it will cost $156,300 to meet this goal. That price includes three trained dogs, ranging from $6,500 to $8,000 each, as well as three fully equipped sportutility vehicles for the animals and their handlers. Police Chief Jeff Sale said the idea came from interviews he held with officers after he was hired this summer to replace retiring chief Sandi Baxter. Knowing the city doesn’t have any extra money — and in fact doesn’t plan to increase its number of officers over the next five years — he said he felt it was important to reach out to the community. “What we’re doing is we’re looking at our entire K-9 program, and we’re looking at how we can add to that program,” Sale said. “There is an absolute need for those animals.” Right now the department has two German shepherds that are primarily used for protection and criminal apprehension, which means they’re trained to chase and bite bad guys.

Last month, Deschutes County officials lobbied federal lawmakers to help them keep grant money used to prevent wildfires. It appears that effort has paid off. As recently as January, Federal Emergency Management Agency officials said the county might have to repay $300,000 to $800,000 in FEMA grant money because the county spent it on work outside project boundaries. The county and FEMA are now close to an agreement that would allow the county to keep nearly all of the money that was already spent, and begin work on a stalled grant this summer. The solution resulted from a series of meetings among FEMA officials, congressional staffers, Oregon Emergency Management staff and county officials. “I’m truly grateful that our congressional delegation folks stuck with us on this because I can tell you, if they hadn’t, we wouldn’t be getting the time of day,” county Forester Joe Stutler said on Thursday. FEMA is now evaluating the legal and political risk of making an exception to its rules, known as a “procedural foul,” for Deschutes County, according to county officials and a memorandum from the agencies to lawmakers. Meanwhile, Stutler will make some revisions to the paperwork for a FEMA grant on which work has not begun. FEMA, the county and Oregon Emergency Management will finish this work and submit it to FEMA’s regional office by Feb. 28. A spokesman for FEMA could not be reached for comment on Friday. The county’s work did not harm the environment, and other federal agencies have completed environmental impact studies in all of the areas where the county did work, Stutler has said. See FEMA / A6

An unlikely sleuth tried to tell Fannie Mae to shape up By Gretchen Morgenson New York Times News Service

Years before the housing bust — before all those home loans turned sour and millions of Americans faced foreclosure — a wealthy businessman in Florida set out to blow the whistle on the mortgage game. His name is Nye Lavalle, and he first came to attention not in finance but in sports and advertising. He turned heads in marketing circles by correctly predicting that NASCAR and figure skating would Lavalle draw huge followings in the 1990s. But after losing a family home to foreclosure under what he thought were fishy circumstances, Lavalle, founder of a consulting firm called the Sports Marketing Group, began a new life as a mortgage sleuth. In 2003, when home prices were flying high, he compiled a dossier of improprieties on one of the giants of the business, Fannie Mae. See Mortgages / A6

In Antarctica, drilling into the past By Marc Kaufman

A lake beneath the ice

Special to The Washington Post

Until the mid-1990s, nobody knew there was a lake 2 miles under Antarctica's icy Vostok station. Now Lake Vostok is understood to hold more water than almost any other lake in the world. A decadeslong Russian effort to drill through the ice and reach the water will soon be completed — if drilling equipment holds up and the bitter cold doesn't return early.

After drilling for two decades through more than two miles of antarctic ice, Russian scientists are on the verge of entering a vast, dark lake that hasn’t been touched by light for more than 20 million years. Scientists are enormously excited about what life-forms might be found there but are equally worried about contaminating the lake with drilling fluids and bacteria, and the potentially explosive “de-gassing” of a body of water that has especially high concentrations of oxygen and nitrogen. To prevent a sudden release of gas, the Russian team will not push the drill far into the lake but just deep enough for a limited amount of water — or the slushy ice on the lake’s surface — to flow up the borehole, where it will then freeze. Reaching Lake Vostok would represent the first direct contact with what scientists now know is a web of more than 200 subglacial lakes in Antarctica — some of which existed when the continent was connected to Australia and was much warmer. They stay liquid because of heat from the core of the planet. “This is a huge moment for science and exploration, breaking through to this enormous lake that we didn’t even know existed until the 1990s,” said John Priscu, a researcher at Montana State University who has long been involved in antarctic research, including a study of Vostok ice cores. “If it goes well, a breakthrough opens up a whole new chapter in our understanding of our planet and possibly moons in our solar system and planets far beyond,” he said. “If it doesn’t go well, it casts a pall over the whole effort to explore this wet underside of Antarctica.” Priscu said Russian scientists on the scene emailed him last week to say they had stopped drilling about 40 feet from the expected waterline to measure the pressure levels deep below. Priscu said he expected that they were also sending down a special “hot water” drill to make the final push, but a message from the Russian team Jan. 30 reported “no news.” If the Russians break through as planned within the next week, it will cap more than 50 years of research in what are considered the harshest conditions in the world — where the surface temperatures drop to 100 degrees below zero. That extreme cold is likely to return within a few weeks, at the end of the antarctic summer, putting pressure on the Russians to make the final push or pull out until the next antarctic drilling season, starting in December. The extreme cold, which limited drilling time, contributed to the long duration of the project. The Russian team also ran into delays caused by financial strains and by efforts to address international worries about their drilling operation.

The subglacial Lake Vostok Situated under 13,000 feet of ice below Russia’s Vostok station and 1,600 below sea level, this body of fresh water has remained untouched and unchanged for millennia.

Valery Lukin, who is leading the effort for the Russians, is on the ice. Last year, he told Reuters that their work is “like exploring an alien planet where no one has been before. We don’t know what we’ll find.” American and English teams are planning drilling campaigns next year into much smaller antarctic lakes as scientists work to understand the dynamics of the continent, which holds more than 70 percent of the world’s fresh water. But Vostok — where the former Soviet Union began work after the United States settled in at the South Pole more than 50 years ago — is now acknowledged to be the “crown jewel” of Antarctica from a scientific perspective. In recent years, researchers have discovered that microbes live in the ice wherever they explore in Antarctica, including deep in the Vostok borehole. This finding has revolutionized thinking about the snow- and ice-covered continent and has encouraged researchers, including Priscu, to conclude that life almost certainly will be found in Vostok and the other subglacial lakes. If microbes are found in Vostok, the discovery would have particular significance for astrobiology, the search for life beyond Earth. That’s because Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus have deep ice crusts that scientists think cover large amounts of liquid water warmed by sources other than the sun — just like Vostok. Because of the stakes involved, the Russian effort has drawn criticism for its extensive use of kerosene, Freon and other chemicals to enable the drilling and to keep the borehole open during the long winter. Priscu said the Russians have worked with an international group he helped form to come up with cleaner

Race turns to Colorado, Minnesota By Shannon McCaffrey and Kasie Hunt The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Now it’s on to Colorado, Minnesota and Maine. With back-to-back victories fueling him, Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney is looking toward the next states that hold GOP nominating contests as main rival Newt Gingrich brushes aside any talk of abandoning his White House bid — all but ensuring the battle will

stretch into the spring, if not beyond. Shortly after losing big to Romney here, the former House speaker emphatically renewed his vow to campaign into the party convention in Tampa this summer. His goal, he said, was to “find a series of victories which by the end of the Texas primary will leave us at parity” with Romney by early April. Gingrich continued to shrug off Nevada’s caucus results in an appearance on Sunday on

NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “This is the state he won last time, and he won it this time,” he said of Romney. “Our goal is to get to Super Tuesday, where we’re in much more favorable territory.” But first, Gingrich must make it through Colorado and Minnesota, which both hold caucuses Tuesday. Maine follows on Saturday during a month that promises to be as plodding as January was rapid-fire in the presidential race. Romney will look to maintain

his position of strength, if not build upon it, as his rivals continue working to derail him even as their options for doing so narrow with each victory he notches. The former Massachusetts governor held a double-digit lead Sunday morning over his nearest pursuer as the totals mounted in Nevada, where fellow Mormons accounted for roughly a quarter of all caucus-goers. Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul vied for a distant second.

Walls no barrier to fighting on Cairo streets CAIRO — Egypt’s military-led government built three new walls of heavy concrete blocks surrounding Egypt’s Interior Ministry on Sunday. But they failed to stop a fourth night of violent clashes between security forces and protesters demanding an end to military rule. Thousands of protesters alternately scurried and swarmed through the streets, hurling rocks and Molotov cocktails at rows of riot police officers. The police chased protesters through the streets in at least three armored personnel carriers. They filled several blocks with thick clouds of tear gas, and walked through the white smoke blasting fleeing protesters with rubber bullets and birdshot. The escalating violence raised new questions about the government’s ability to control the fighting, in part because it showed the failure of what has become the military’s favorite tactic in crowd control. Previous outbreaks of street fighting, in November and December, were ultimately halted after the military erected concrete barriers bisecting streets leading from the symbolic center of the protests, Tahrir Square, to their most despised target, the Interior Ministry. Before dawn Sunday morning, the military erected three more walls, bringing the total to eight, including one that was partly toppled in protests this week. “It is a beautiful illustration of the poverty of political imagination in Egypt,” said Heba Morayef, a researcher for Human Rights Watch. “This is policymaking? Building walls?” — New York Times News Service

Egypt defies U.S. by setting criminal trial for 19 Americans By Hamza Hendawi The Associated Press

CAIRO — Ignoring a U.S. threat to cut off aid, Egypt has referred 19 Americans and 24 other employees of nonprofit groups to trial before a criminal court on accusations they illegally used foreign funds to foment unrest in the country. Egypt’s military rulers had already deeply strained ties with Washington with their crackdown on U.S.-funded groups promoting democracy and human rights and accused of stirring up violence in the aftermath of the uprising a year ago that ousted President Hosni Mubarak. The Sunday decision to send 43 workers from the various groups to trials marks a sharp escalation in the dispute. Egypt and the United States have been close allies for more

than three decades, but the campaign against the organizations has angered Washington, and jeopardized the $1.5 billion in aid Egypt is set to receive from the U.S. this year. On Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Egypt that failure to resolve the dispute may lead to the loss of American aid. The Egyptian minister, Mohammed Amr, responded Sunday by saying the government cannot interfere in the work of the judiciary. “We are doing our best to contain this but ... we cannot actually exercise any influence on the investigating judges right now when it comes to the investigation,” Amr told reporters at a security conference in Munich, Germany. A few hours later, word of the referral to trials came.

The Egyptian investigation into the work of nonprofit groups in the country is closely linked to the political turmoil that has engulfed the nation since the ouster of Mubarak, a close U.S. ally who ruled Egypt for nearly 30 years. Egypt’s military rulers have been under fire by liberal and secular groups for bungling what was supposed to be a transition to democracy after Mubarak’s ouster. The ruling generals who took power after the uprising, led by a man who was Mubarak’s defense minister for 20 years, have tried to deflect the criticism by claiming “foreign hands” are behind protests against their rule and frequently depict the protesters as receiving funds from abroad in a plot to destabilize the country.

Tuaregs use Gadhafi’s Police: 11 arrested arms for rebellion in Mali at Occupy D.C. site By Adam Nossiter New York Times News Service

BAMAKO, Mali — In life, he delighted in fomenting insurgencies in the African nations to the south. And in death, Moammar Gadhafi is doing it all over again. Hundreds of Tuareg rebels, heavily armed courtesy of Gadhafi’s extensive arsenal, have stormed towns in Mali’s northern desert in recent weeks, in one of the most significant regional shock waves to emanate directly from Gadhafi’s fall. After fighting for Gadhafi as he struggled to stay in power, the Tuaregs helped themselves to a considerable quantity of sophisticated weaponry before returning to Mali. When they got here, they reinvigorated a longstanding rebellion and blossomed into a major challenge for this impoverished desert nation, an important U.S. ally against the regional al-Qaida franchise. The Tuaregs hoisted their rebel flag in the sandy north-

ern towns, shelled military installations, announced the “liberation” of the area and shouted “Allahu akbar,” or “God is great,” according to local officials. Their sudden strength has deeply surprised a Malian army accustomed to fighting wispy turbaned fighters wielding only Kalashnikov rifles. Months after the death of Gadhafi, his weapons have armed a rebel movement in Africa. In life, he backed African insurgencies in Chad, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe. And for this sparsely populated land, the recent fighting seems a step beyond the army’s desert skirmishes with the Tuaregs in the 1960s, the early 1990s and again in 2006. This time, the rebels are not being quickly stamped out or fleeing to the rocky mountains of this vast, inhospitable region. To the contrary, officials now say they are facing perhaps the most serious threat ever from the Tuaregs.

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Authorities say 11 people have been arrested in Washington, D.C.’s McPherson Square since Park Police began clearing away tents from one of the nation’s last remaining Occupy sites. David Schlosser, who is a spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said Sunday that one of those arrested was charged with felony assault on a police officer and assault with a deadly weapon. That person is accused of

hitting an officer in the face with a brick Saturday evening. The officer was treated at a hospital. Three others were charged with assault on a police officer. Schlosser says officials are continuing to clear the park of unsanitary conditions, though so far Sunday things had remained mostly peaceful. On Saturday night, the protesters vowed to continue their movement and urged followers to remain nonviolent.

Syria steps up crackdown after failed U.N. motion

By Mike Baker, Gene Johnson and Brian Skoloff

By Anthony Shadid

The Associated Press

BEIRUT — The collapse of diplomatic efforts to mediate Syria’s uprising reverberated across the country Sunday, emboldening a government that pressed on with a crackdown in the capital’s suburbs and the north and prompting rebel leaders to vow that only force would drive President Bashar Assad from power. There were few words of optimism in a conflict that may or may not yet be a civil war, but already bears the hallmarks of a prolonged struggle pitting a still relatively cohesive leadership against an opposition that has gained control of territory in some places, while crumbling before the government’s onslaught in others. The violence Sunday, centered in long-rebellious areas, including the city of Homs, killed 31 people, according to activists, adding to a death toll that the United Nations set at 5,400 before it stopped making estimates. Even before the predictions of intensified conflict, the government’s citadels of support — Damascus and Aleppo — had begun, after months of relative quiet, to feel the brunt of a conflict that emerged nearly 11 months ago from the countryside. In some of the capital’s suburbs, military forces have recently begun to act like an occupying army, with residents reporting instances of looting and pillaging. And sectarianism has become so pronounced that some military defectors have vowed to attack religious sites. The collapse of the U.N. Security Council’s effort to pressure Assad, after vetoes by Russia and China on Saturday, came just hours after the military shelled Homs in what opposition leaders called the deadliest assault since the uprising began in March. They said more than 200 were killed, a toll that Syrian officials flatly denied. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday called the quashing of the resolution a “travesty” and said the administration would renew efforts to stop the flow of arms to Assad’s government.

GRAHAM, Wash. — Josh Powell’s note was simple and short, a farewell to the world after two years of being scrutinized in the media, hammered by police and questioned by judges, prosecutors and social workers, living his life under a microscope since the day his wife vanished. “I’m sorry, goodbye,” Powell wrote in an email to his attorney just minutes before authorities say he set fire to his home, killing himself and his two young sons days after he was denied custody and ordered to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation. The Sunday blaze at Powell’s home brought yet another twist in the very public scandal that began when Susan Powell vanished in 2009. The case had since spiraled into a salacious saga of fingerpointing and accusations of sex and lies — and now the unthinkable loss of two young lives caught in the crossfire. A social worker brought the two boys to Josh Powell’s home Sunday for what was to be a supervised visit. They rushed toward the home, leaving the social worker behind. By the time she got to the door, Powell had let his sons in but locked her out, Graham Fire and Rescue Chief Gary Franz told The Associated Press. The social worker called her supervisors to report that she could smell gas. Moments later, the home burst into flames, igniting an inferno that neighbors said rattled their houses. Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ed Troyer said it appeared some sort of accelerant was used to make the house burn faster. He said emails Powell sent just prior to the blaze seemed to confirm that Powell planned the deadly blast. Susan Powell, a pretty 28-year-old mother of two, was reported missing Dec. 7, 2009, after she failed to show up for her stockbroker job in Utah. Authorities in the couple’s hometown of West Valley City, about 10 miles outside Salt Lake City, quickly turned their attention to Josh Powell. He’s been the only “person of interest” in the case, but had repeatedly denied any involvement in her disappearance.

Genome Continued from A1 Nine years after scientists sequenced the first complete human genome — the instruction manual for making all the body’s cells — the industry is poised for a series of takeovers and technological breakthroughs that will bring the technology into doctor’s offices and patient hospital rooms. Equipment made by Life Technologies and Illumina Inc. is spewing out human genome sequences faster than ever and prices will soon drop to $1,000, below that of many widely used diagnostic procedures, such as colonoscopies. The explosion of genomic data is creating a revolution in the treatment of some genetically driven diseases, especially cancer, said Harold Varmus, director of the National Cancer Institute. With an exact understanding of the genetic alterations causing individual tumors to grow uncontrollably, doctors can target therapies for better effectiveness, he said. “It’s the biggest change I’ve ever seen in oncology,” he said in an interview. “People are taking genetic information they see in patients’ tumors and changing therapy in dramatic ways.” But huge obstacles loom. While the Beerys benefited from Joe’s job at Carlsbad, Calif.-based Life Technologies, whole genome sequencing isn’t routinely covered by insurers. The procedure currently remains inaccessible to most patients unless they have the persistence to be chosen for clinical research studies or can pay out of pocket.

Stumbling blocks Just as important, the volume of data that needs to be organized and analyzed is smothering efforts to make the genome applicable to day-to-day medicine. Each person’s DNA code contains 6 billion chemical letters, called bases, and differs from what’s considered “normal” at more than 3 million of those points. Doctors are still learning the medical significance of the millions of variations. Most of the gigabytes of genetic data churned out by sequencers around the world is, for now, incomprehensible to scientists, let alone people who see patients daily. “We are standing on the beach, and a tidal wave of information is coming toward us,” says David King, CEO of Laboratory Corp. of America Holdings in Burlington, N.C., which does medical testing. Health insurers are also reluctant to underwrite testing such as a full genome sequence that may encourage plan participants to use and demand services that might be needless in many cases, King said at a conference at Harvard Medical School in Boston last year. “If you want to see their hair stand on end, ask them about a test that’s going to be offered to everyone to see if they have some genetic predisposition to obesity or diabetes or something else,” King said. “They will run from the room screaming.” Even if it costs just $1,000 to sequence a genome, there are questions that must be answered before insurers will pay for it, said Susan Pisano, a spokeswoman for America’s Health Insurance Plans, a Washington-based industry group. “It’s whether there’s evidence that it makes a difference to the health of individuals,” Pisano said. “Are we confident that there’s an adequate level of accuracy? And what are we going to do with the results?” Most DNA sequencers are high-powered cameras costing from $50,000 to $700,000 that can read and arrange the four chemical bases of DNA — called A, C, G and T — quickly, accurately and in order. DNA from a person’s tissue is chopped into pieces, assembled on a slide, and the four bases are labeled fluorescently or with some other marker, so they can be detected by a camera. Finally, those millions of pieces are reassembled into one single DNA sequence. Machines with newer technology, such as Life Technologies’ Personal Genome Machine and Ion Proton sequencers, sense the different chemical bases by measuring the release of hydrogen ions from each “letter” of the DNA alphabet. QuantuMDx, a closely held British company, has designed a mini-sequencer the size of an iPod that could be used to test patients for infec-

Fraternal twins Noah and Alexis Beery get some air on the family trampoline in Olivenhain, Calif. Genome sequencing revealed that the twins had been misdiagnosed and incompletely treated.

tions and drug responses.

Family’s breakthrough The Beerys’ introduction to sequencing began at a 2008 job interview. Joe, 49, was chief information officer at US Airways Group, and Greg Lucier, chief executive of Invitrogen — which later became Life Technologies — was trying to recruit him. At a dinner overlooking the Pacific shore in Del Mar, Calif., the Beerys described to Lucier and his wife how their children had been misdiagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of 2. Alexis had muscle weakness and general fatigue that worsened each day from the morning on. “We went through so many invasive tests through the years,” Retta said. “Between the two of them, I’m sure it’s been more than a million dollars from insurance and what we’ve paid.” Retta described scouring the literature for conditions that fit the strange symptoms. When the twins were 51⁄2 years old, she read about a rare disorder called a “dystonia,” caused by a deficiency of a nervous system chemical. It sounded similar to what the children were suffering from and was caused by a shortage of dopamine, a nervous system messenger molecule. Doctors treated the condition with a dose of a drug called Sinemet. “Alexis took a quarter of a pill, and she slept through the night for the first time in her life,” Retta said. Lucier told the Beerys that Invitrogen was about to purchase a sequencing company called Applied Biosystems, a move that would later result in the company being renamed Life Technologies. Applied’s sequencers had the potential to find faulty genes in children in just weeks or months, rather than the years-long odyssey the Beery twins, then in their early teens, had endured, Lucier said. “When you help me merge these companies, there’s a possibility we’ll have the technology to sequence kids with problems like these at birth,” Joe Beery recalled Lucier saying. “On the way home, I already knew that this was a company that I wanted to be a part of,” said Joe, who signed with Life Technologies within about eight weeks. A few months after that, the Beery twins’ treatment started to lose effectiveness, and some of the children’s symptoms reappeared. Alexis’ were particularly frightening and severe. During a two-month period, she went to the emergency room seven times because she was turning blue from lack of oxygen, Retta recalled. In 2009, Joe and Retta were listening to a presentation by Eric Topol, a Scripps Research Institute scientist who has organized several large genetic studies. As Topol talked about the power of sequencing to solve medical mysteries, a thought began to take shape in Retta’s mind: why not sequence the children’s genomes? Through Life Technologies’ sequencing division, Joe and Retta got in touch with a team of doctors and scientists at Baylor College of Medicine’s Human Genome Sequencing Center in Houston. One of the Baylor researchers, James Lupski, had sequenced his own genome to identify the mutation behind his case of an inherited nerve disorder, called CharcotMarie-Tooth disease. The Beery children’s DNA was decoded in two months by Baylor’s Richard Gibbs on Life Technologies’ machines, the sequencers the Beerys learned about in the dinner at Del Mar. Life helped pay for the procedure, along with Baylor re-

search funds. Baylor’s doctors and scientists then performed the analysis. As the process went forward, Joe would take a few minutes during his regular work meetings with Lucier to update him on progress. “I wanted to stay close to it,” recalled Lucier, who later had his own genome sequenced. “It was one of the first full human genome sequencing efforts to study a disease, and I wanted to make sure it did not disappoint.” The procedure revealed that the twins had been incompletely diagnosed. In addition to the dopamine deficiency, the dystonia was being caused by a second genetic mutation that interfered with a separate nervous system chemical, called serotonin. The twins’ doctors found that the dystonia could be fully treated with a serotonin replacement that was readily available through pharmacies. The change was dramatic: soon Alexis was back to school, track and basketball. A small dose also helped Noah, who had been less severely affected by the deficiency.

New sequencer News spread quickly through Life Technologies’ offices that the sequencing had helped save the Beery twins. Last summer, Joe told the story to a crowd of hundreds of Life Technolo-

gies employees, with the twins present. He explained how he saw the work of the company’s employees playing a key role in keeping his children alive and healthy. “People were crying,” Lucier recalled. “People came up to the Beerys afterwards to hug them and thank them for their courage in doing this. It allowed all our employees to draw a line between their work and making life better for patients.” Earlier this month, the company introduced the Ion Proton sequencer, a $150,000 machine Lucier says will be able to sequence an entire human genome in one day for a cost of about $1,000. Until now, most sequencers have been sold to the research community. While that’s an important market, the potential for sales to hospitals, clinics and testing laboratories is far larger, Lucier said. The Beerys said they hope more parents and children will be helped as they have been. Joe Beery said that while he and his family always prayed for guidance, they never dreamed that the answer to their children’s health mystery would arrive because he landed at a company that took a gamble on genome sequencing. “The fact that I ended up where I ended up, you have to believe those prayers were answered,” he said.

Breakthroughs abound in sequencing Sequencing efficiency is racing ahead. Clifford Reid, CEO of Complete Genomics Inc. in Mountain View, Calif., said his capacity will increase 100 times in the coming years. The next challenge is developing software and gadgets to help put sequencing information to use in hospitals and physicians’ offices. Google’s Google Ventures fund, which invests as much as $200 million annually in startups, has put a “significant” chunk of its money into companies aiming to speed the use of the genome, said Krishna Yeshwant, one of its partners. Companies such as GenomeQuest, based in Westborough, Mass., Emeryville, Calif.-based Omicia Inc. and Softgenetics in State College, Pa., are making software to search through gene variations and find those that are “actionable,” for doctors trying to diagnose and treat disease. Martin Reese, CEO of Omicia, hired a software developer with experience both at Apple and Wal-Mart Stores to develop a system that would sort huge numbers of genetic variations, select those that were most likely to be associated with disease, and make it easy for users to process the results. “We’re taking a process, hand annotation of the genome, that can take up to six months to do, and automating it so that it takes just a half hour or an hour,” Reese said. Like the computer industry 20 years ago, gene-sequencing companies are also aiming to make smaller, friendlier products. During an interview in his office, Jay Flatley, the CEO of San Diego-based Illumina, waved an Apple iPad loaded with an application that displayed his genome. Patients could take this information with them to a doctor’s appointment, he said, and discuss treatments. “What people want to know is, what genetic variants do I have that are different for a disease or drug?” he says, quickly paging through screens of diagrams, text and color icons. He stopped on one describing a gene that would affect his response to the blood-thinner warfarin, should he ever take it. “I’m in the high-sensitivity category, so I should get a lower dose.” — Bloomberg News

Mortgages Continued from A1 In hindsight, what he found looks like a blueprint of today’s foreclosure crisis. Even then, Lavalle discovered, some loan-servicing companies that worked for Fannie Mae routinely filed false foreclosure documents, not unlike the fraudulent paperwork that has since made “robo-signing” a household term. Even then, he found, the nation’s electronic mortgage registry was playing fast and loose with the law — something that courts have belatedly recognized, too. You may wonder why Lavalle didn’t speak up. But he did. For two years, he corresponded with Fannie executives and lawyers. Fannie later hired a Washington law firm to investigate his claims. In May 2006, that firm, using some of Lavalle’s research, issued a confidential, 147-page report corroborating many of his findings.

End of the line? And there, apparently, is where it ended. There is little evidence that Fannie Mae’s management or board ever took serious action. Known internally as O.C.J. Case No. 5595, in reference to the company’s Office of Corporate Justice, this 2006 report suggests just how deep, and how far back, our mortgage and foreclosure problems really go. “It is axiomatic that the practice of submitting false pleadings and affidavits is unlawful,” said the report, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. “With his complaint, Mr. Lavalle has identified an issue that Fannie Mae needs to address promptly.” What Fannie Mae knew about abusive foreclosure practices, and when it knew it, are crucial questions as Congress and the Obama administration weigh the future of the company and its cousin, Freddie Mac. These giants eventually blew themselves apart and, so far, they have cost taxpayers $150 billion. But before that, their size and reach — not only through their own businesses but also through the vast amount of work they farm out to law firms and loan servicers — meant that Fannie and Freddie shaped the standards for the entire mortgage industry. Almost all of the abuses that Lavalle began identifying in 2003 have since come to widespread attention. The revelations have roiled the mortgage industry and left Fannie, Freddie and big banks with potentially enormous legal liabilities. More worrying is that the kinds of problems that Lavalle flagged so long ago, and that Fannie apparently ignored, have evicted people from their homes through improper or fraudulent foreclosures. Until a few weeks ago, Lavalle, 54, had never seen O.C.J. 5595. He had hoped to get a copy after helping Fannie’s lawyers, at Baker & Hostetler in Washington, complete it. He didn’t. But after learning about its findings from a reporter for The Times, Lavalle said, “Fannie Mae, its directors, servicers and lawyers appeared to have an institutional policy of turning a willful blind eye to evidence of mortgage origination and servicing fraud.” He went on: “When confronted directly with this evidence, Fannie not only failed to correct and remedy the abuses, it assisted in continuing the

frauds via institutional practices that concealed fraudulent foreclosures.” A spokesman for Fannie Mae said in a statement last week that the company quickly addressed several issues that were raised in the 2006 report and that it took action on other issues associated with foreclosures in 2010. “We want to prevent foreclosure whenever possible, but when foreclosures cannot be avoided they must move forward in a timely, appropriate fashion,” he said. Fannie Mae would not say whether it had shared O.J.C. 5595 with its board of directors or its regulator, then known as the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight. James Lockhart III, who headed that regulator in 2006, said he did not recall reading the report. “I probably did not see it, as back then foreclosures were not a very big deal,” he said. But another report published last fall by the inspector general of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the current regulator, briefly mentioned some of the problems that Lavalle had raised. (It didn’t mention him by name.) It also faulted Fannie Mae, saying it failed to address foreclosure improprieties that had surfaced years before. Like most people, Nye Lavalle had little interest in the mortgage industry until things got personal. Raised in comfortable surroundings in Grosse Pointe, Mich., just outside Detroit, he began his business career in the 1970s, managing professional tennis players. In the 1980s, he ran SMG, a thriving consulting and research firm. Then he tried to pay off a loan on a home his family had bought in Dallas in 1988. The balance was roughly $100,000, and the property was valued at about $175,000, Lavalle said. But when he combed through figures provided by his lender, Savings of America, he found substantial discrepancies in the accounting that had inflated his bill by $18,000. The loan servicer had repeatedly charged him late fees for payments he had made on time, as well as for unnecessary appraisals and force-placed hazard insurance, he said. Lavalle refused to pay. The bank refused to bend. The balance rose as the bank tacked on lawyers’ fees and the loan was deemed delinquent. The fight continued after his mortgage was allegedly sold to EMC, a Bear Stearns unit. Unlike most people, Lavalle had the time and money to fight. He persuaded his family to help him pay for a lawsuit against EMC and Bear Stearns. Seven years and a small fortune later, they lost the house in Dallas. Back then, judges weren’t as interested in mortgage practices as some are now, he said.

Investigation The experience lit a fire. Lavalle set out to learn everything he could about the mortgage industry. In a five-hour interview in Naples, Fla., last month, he described his travels nationwide. He dove into mortgage arcana, land records and court filings. By 1996, he had identified what appeared to be forged signatures on foreclosure documents, foreshadowing troubles to come. He took his findings to big players in the industry: Banc One, Bear Stearns, Countrywide Financial, Freddie Mac, JPMorgan, Washington Mutual and oth-

ers. A few responded but later said his claims were not valid, he said. Now he splits his time between Orlando and Boca Raton, advising lawyers as an expert witness. “From my own personal experience and 20 years of research and investigation, nothing — and I mean nothing — that a bank, lender, loan servicer or their lawyer says or puts on paper can be trusted and accepted as true,” Lavalle said. Fannie Mae, now in government hands, has acknowledged how abusive foreclosure practices can hurt its own business. “The failure of our servicers or a law firm to apply prudent and effective process controls and to comply with legal and other requirements in the foreclosure process poses operational, reputational and legal risks for us,” it said in a 2010 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Five years earlier, Fannie seemed to have taken a different view. That was when Lavalle pointed out legal lapses by some of its representatives. Among them was the law offices of David J. Stern, in Plantation, Fla., which was handling an astonishing 75,000 foreclosure cases a year — more than 200 a day. In 2005, Lavalle warned Fannie Mae that some judges had ruled that the Stern firm was submitting “sham pleadings.” Nonetheless, Fannie continued to do business with the firm until it closed its doors last year, after evidence emerged of rampant forgeries and fraudulent filings. O.C.J. Case No. 5595 found that Stern wasn’t the only firm working for Fannie that seemed to be cutting corners. It also found that lawyers operating in seven other states — Connecticut, Georgia, New York, Illinois, Louisiana, Kentucky and Ohio — had made false filings in connection with work for Fannie Mae or the Mortgage Electronic Registration System, or MERS, a private mortgage registry Fannie helped establish in 1995. “While Fannie Mae officials do not have a single opinion, some officials believe foreclosure counsel are sacrificing accuracy for speed,” the report said. The lawyers at Baker & Hostetler did not agree with everything Lavalle said. Mark Cymrot, a partner who led the investigation, discounted Lavalle’s fear that Fannie could lose billions if large numbers of foreclosures had to be unwound as a result of misconduct by its lawyers and servicers. Even so, the report didn’t conclude that Lavalle was wrong on the legal issues. It simply said that few people would have the financial resources to challenge foreclosures. In other words, few people would be like Lavalle. “Courts are unlikely to unwind foreclosures unless borrowers can demonstrate that the foreclosure would not have gone forward with the correct pleadings, which is a difficult burden for most borrowers to meet,” the report said. “Nevertheless, the issues Mr. Lavalle raises should be addressed promptly in order to mitigate the risk of exposure to lawsuits and some degree of liability.” Cymrot declined to comment for this article.

MERS warning Perhaps no development has done more to obscure the forces behind the foreclosure

epidemic than the rise of the MERS, the private registry that has all but replaced public land-ownership records. Created by Fannie, Freddie and big banks, MERS claims to hold title to roughly half the nation’s home mortgages. Judges and lawmakers have questioned MERS’s legal authority to initiate foreclosures, and some judges have thrown out foreclosures brought in its name. On Friday, New York’s attorney general sued MERS, contending that its system led to fraudulent foreclosure filings. MERS rebutted the claims and said it would fight. Lavalle warned Fannie years ago that MERS couldn’t legally foreclose because it didn’t actually own notes underlying properties. The report agreed. MERS’s approach of letting loan servicers foreclose in its own name, not in that of institutions owning the notes, “is not accepted legal practice in all states,” the report said. Moreover, “MERS’s counsel conceded false allegations are routinely made, and the practice should be ‘modified.’” It continued: “To our knowledge, MERS has not addressed the issue of its counsels’ repeated false statements to the courts.” Janis Smith, a spokeswoman for MERS, said it had not seen the Baker & Hostetler report and declined to comment on its references to the false statements made on its behalf to the courts. She said that MERS’s business model is legal in all states and that, as a nominee, it has the right to foreclose. MERS stopped allowing its members to foreclose in its name in all states in 2011. Robert Drain, a federal bankruptcy judge in the Southern District of New York, said in court last month that the failure of the mortgage industry to deal with pervasive problems involving inaccurate documentation and improper court filings amounted to “the greatest failure of lawyering in the last 50 years.” In an interview last week, Drain said several practices have contributed to the foreclosure mess. One is that Fannie and the rest of the industry failed to ensure that MERS was operating legally in all states. Another is that the industry failed to perform due diligence on documentation. MERS no longer participates in foreclosures. But a lot of damage has already been done, Lavalle said. “Hundreds of thousands of foreclosures in Florida and across America were knowingly conducted unlawfully, for which there are still severe liabilities and implications to come for many years,” he said. The 2006 report said Lavalle at times came across as over the top, that he was, in its words, “partial to extreme analogies that undermine his credibility.” Knowing what we know now, he looks more like one of the financial Cassandras of our time — a man whose prescient warnings went heeded. Now, he hopes dubious mortgage practices will be eradicated. “Any attorney general, lawyer, bank director, judge, regulator or member of Congress who does not open their eyes to the abuse, ask pertinent questions and allow proper investigation and discovery,” he said, “is only assisting in the concealment of what may be the fraud of our lifetime.”

The U.S. military is planning to elevate the role of Special Operations forces in Afghanistan as it shifts away from a combat focus to a mission that places greater emphasis on training Afghan forces and raids to kill senior insurgent leaders, senior U.S. officials said. The initial steps in that direction are likely to take place in the next few months, when the Pentagon is expected to create a new two-star command that would oversee the entire Special Operations effort in Afghanistan. The new command would be led by Maj. Gen. Tony Thomas, the deputy commander of the military’s Joint Special Operations Command, which oversees the military’s elite counterterrorism forces around the world. The new Special Operations command in Afghanistan could eventually take over responsibility for the

FEMA Continued from A1 Some of those areas are neighborhoods, where property owners received county assistance to clear brush and thin trees. However, FEMA does not normally accept other federal agencies’ environmental assessments. Stutler said he shared responsibility with state and FEMA staff for the problems that arose. “Our issue was, ‘OK, whatever mistakes we’ve made, we’ll own,’” Stutler said, “but you can’t let us work two years and then tell us we’ve screwed up; that ain’t acceptable.’” FEMA officials first told county staff they had spent federal money to clear areas that weren’t approved in September 2010, two years after the county began work on the first grant. The federal agency has awarded three grants totaling $6.7 million for wildfire prevention work to Deschutes, Crook and Klamath counties since 2007. Deschutes and Crook counties enlisted residents and contractors to remove brush and thin trees to protect homes from wildfire. Work on the grant that includes Klamath County never began. During meetings in January, county, state and federal officials decided that FEMA will keep the remaining $710,000 of the 2007 and 2008 grants, which Deschutes County has not spent. Since the county already cleared so much of the area covered

day-to-day war effort as U.S. troop levels drop in the country and as the United States moves away from its traditional combat role to an effort focused primarily on training and advising Afghan forces. The plan, which is still being considered, would mark a major change in the war effort, built around big American conventional units working alongside Afghan army and police forces to clear areas of insurgents and reestablish Afghan governance. In many aspects, it resembles a plan advocated by Vice President Joe Biden in 2009 to focus U.S. efforts on training Afghan forces and killing high-level insurgent leaders. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta referred in broad terms to some of the changes last week when he said that the United States hopes to end its combat mission in Afghanistan by the middle of next year, more than a year earlier than scheduled.

by those FEMA grants — and land outside the project areas — there is little land left where the county could do work, unless it undertakes another environmental study to expand the project area. “It made sense to say, ‘You know what, we’ve completed six times what we said we’d do anyway,’” and just close out these two grants, Stutler said. The county will repay roughly $6,500 to FEMA for work done in Jefferson County. The county worked with property owners to clear brush on land covered by a Sistersarea wildfire prevention plan, which extends into Jefferson County at Camp Sherman. “Unfortunately, it’s about 3 miles out of Deschutes County and the grant is for Deschutes and Crook counties, and so that is totally on me,” Stutler said. In early January, Stutler and Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney met with FEMA officials and congressional staff in Washington, D.C. During the meeting, FEMA officials said they were still reviewing the county’s work, and that the county might have to reimburse FEMA as much as $800,000. Staff for Sens. Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, both DOre., and Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, also attended the meeting in support of the county’s position. — Reporter: 541-617-7829,

Report: 3 more Tibetans set themselves on fire


Bend Continued from A1 Sale said he wants to add two drug dogs to the K-9 unit to help with narcotics enforcement efforts. This is important, he said, because U.S. Highway 97 is considered a major drug trafficking corridor. He added that if the department wants to use another agency’s drug dog, his officers are subject to the availability of that animal. A bloodhound, on the other hand, is a bit different. Unlike cadaver dogs, Sale said, bloodhounds are typically trained to track a living person’s scent. While the two German shepherds can do this, they’re not specifically trained for tracking and can’t follow a scent as well as a bloodhound. For instance, when the police department was recently investigating several arson fires in the area, Sale said officers might have been able to use a bloodhound to track the suspect using a piece of evidence collected from a crime scene. Considering that the Bend Police Department has investigated more than 750 missing person cases since 2010, he said, a bloodhound is all the more important. If a child or Alzheimer’s patient wanders away from home, Sale said, finding those individuals can be much easier and a less intensive use of department resources. “(Bloodhounds) have extreme value because they’re not aggressive, and you can track virtually anything,” Sale said. “A bloodhound is much more successful in tracking. (And) once it finds you, it will lick you. It will not bite you.” This is not the first time Sale has been involved in K-9 fundraising efforts. He was also involved in a successful campaign when he was the police chief in Cheney, Wash. Bend’s K-9 program was started in the early 1980s, and has consisted mainly of German shepherds. Over that time, the number of K-9 units has fluctuated between two and four. More information about the city’s K-9 program and how to donate can be found on the city’s website at aspx?page=780.

estimate that Tanja’s efforts took around $250,000 worth of drugs off the street. Comparing the two dogs is like quantifying the difference between a football player and a basketball player. Their skill sets are completely different. While a patrol dog takes down a suspect, a drug dog frantically searches rooms and cars for contraband and drugs. Watching a drug dog at work is a dizzying affair, with the animal sniffing about a room before catching the hint of an odor and beelining for a package of concealed drugs. The department currently has three dogs on patrol. Blackledge now has K-9 officer Ruch, a 4-year-old Belgian Mali-

Chinese officials regularly blame the protests and other discontent in Tibetan regions on plots by outside agitators led by the Dalai Lama. Since last March, the 19 fiery displays of discontent have resulted in at least 13 deaths. They centered on two prefectures in north Sichuan, tracts of mountain land that, like Tibet itself, are called autonomous areas but are in practice tightly controlled by Chinese government and security offices.

Blackledge tells a story about releasing Ike into an abandoned house where a suspect had fled. Barking and growling, the dog cornered the individual and Blackledge called Ike off before he bit. Other officers on scene called the incident incredible in both its display and effect. Blackledge calls it “the intimidation effect” when a dog is on scene. “It’s more intimidating than a gun, even,” Blackledge said. But when the dog gets home from the chasing and the barking and the biting, Blackledge said, “he still runs around like a puppy, knocking stuff off tables and wanting to play. It’s really fun.” – Reporter: 541-617-7837,

McClatchy Newspapers BEIJING — Three ethnic Tibetans set themselves on fire in the Chinese province of Sichuan on Friday, according to a rights group report over the weekend that if correct would bring the total number of self-immolations to 19 in less than a year. The self-immolations are said to be in protest of Beijing’s policies toward Tibetan culture and religion, which critics describe as ranging from repressive to brutal.

Fraker’s new K-9 partner is a 2year-old Belgian Malinois named Ike, who began in September. Both Blackledge and Fraker say their current K-9 partners have proven efficient and dependable in the field. But perhaps the most interesting part about the K9 officers? “At home, they still act like a puppy,” Fraker said. “They absolutely know the difference between work and home.

LOCAL BRIEFING Clear skies will remain this week Central Oregonians can expect this week’s weather to remain cool and calm. Ann Adams, an assistant forecaster with the National Weather Service office in Pendleton, said the unusually sunny skies and cool climate seen this winter will stick around for at least another week. “We don’t see any mention of precipitation until Friday night,” Adams said. “Even then, it is only a slight chance of rain or snow showers. Then by the weekend it should be clear again.” Some fog may move into the area this morning, but will likely clear by noon. Today’s high temperatures are expected to be in the high 40s and tonight’s lows are expected to drop below 20 degrees. Tuesday should see a bit of cloud cover with highs in the upper 40s and lows in the mid-20s. Wednesday through Friday should be mostly clear, with highs peaking around the high 40s and low 50s, and lows in the high 20s. A slight chance of showers on Friday night will likely quickly give way to clear skies for the weekend. Weekend highs should be in the high 40s, with lows remaining in the low 30s.

Funding for Highway 20 renovations falls through By Erik Hidle The Bulletin

Funding for a major roadwork project in Sisters has entered countdown mode after two eagerly hoped-for grants failed to materialize last month. A federal grant, worth $1.4 million, and $400,000 worth of state “flex funds” had been tentatively penciled in to pay for improvements along U.S. Highway 20 in downtown Sisters. Mike Darling, project lead at the Oregon Department of Transportation, said last week that Sisters has missed out on the monies and the funds were awarded to other projects. The city and state must know how much they can pay contractors by August, when a call for bids is expected to be released. That puts a time crunch on securing new funds. “We’re still a year away from the final design but the hard decisions will come this summer when we go into advanced plans,” Darling said. “If the funding is still not there at that time then we have to decide what we do and what we do not do. It’s not so much a deadline but more like a reality.” See Highway 20 / B2

Super Bowl run benefits Crook track and field

2nd suspect in burglary arrested Bend police arrested a second man this weekend on suspicion of burglary, theft, criminal mischief and possession of methamphetamine related to a burglary at the Third Street Pub. William Alan Madison, 51, was arrested at 9 a.m. Saturday and booked in the Deschutes County jail, where he remained on Sunday night. Madison, a transient, was picked up at a motel near the corner of Southeast Wilson Avenue and Centennial Street in Bend. The arrest stems from an investigation into a theft at the Third Street Pub in January. Walter Laurence Lindenmaier, 50 of Bend, was originally found to be in possession of stolen property from the theft on Jan. 29. — Bulletin staff reports

PRINEVILLE — More than 100 runners helped out Crook County High School sports Sunday morning by going on a big dam run. For the toughest runners, the Super Bowl Sunday Dam Run began 20 miles outside Prineville atop the Arthur R. Bowman Dam. Shorter runs of 10 and five miles also allowed runners to Inside wind their way down state High- • Complete results for way 27 through the early morning the Super fog. Bowl “We had 117 people in all,” said Sunday Norm Smith, owner of Norm’s Dam Run, Xtreme Fitness and organizer of D2 the event. “It was a great turnout and you honestly couldn’t have asked for a better day for it.” The run cost $20 per entrant and a majority of the funds will go to the Crook County track and field team. Smith said he will announce the total amount raised in a few days. In Crook County, where high school sports are largely subsidized by fundraisers and generous community members, the fundraiser was a boon for the track and field program. See Dam run / B5

Hospital can’t secure contractor for remodel By Duffie Taylor The Bulletin

For years, Madras’ only hospital has been planning to move forward with a $33 million renovation project that would bring its 50-year-old facilities into the 21st century. But when Mountain View Hospital facilitators put the project out to bid last month, they failed to secure a contract within their $22.5 million price range. “I don’t know if it was due to material costs or what exactly. But the total price was surprisingly higher than we anticipated,” said Jeanie Gentry, the hospital’s chief executive officer. See Hospital / B2

Facilitators had planned to pay for the project with bonds backed by a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development program that helps hospitals secure cost-effective interest rates. “HUD is still an option for us but we’re considering others as well,” said Gentry. Specifically, she said the hospital would consider a low-interest-rate loan with the United States Department of Agriculture or the cooperation of a private investor. Gentry said it was still early to determine a new cost estimate or timeline for the smaller-scale project.

O N Mushroom hunters recall ordeal in woods By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

GOLD BEACH — Three mushroom pickers lost for six nights in the rugged forest of southwest Oregon with no food considered eating their dog, and used the screen on their dead cellphone and the blade of a sheath knife to flash a signal at the helicopter pilot who found them. Dan Conne said Sunday from his hospital bed in Gold Beach that he and his wife and son spent the nights huddled in a hollow log with nothing to eat, and considered sacrificing their pit bull, Jesse, for food. “She’s that good a dog, she’d have done it, too,” Conne said. A volunteer helicopter pilot looking outside the search area Saturday spotted Dan and Belinda Conne, both 47, along with 25-year-old Michael, on the edge of a deep ravine in tall timber. They were about 10 miles northeast of the town of Gold Beach, roughly 330 miles south-southwest of Portland. “The wife had the BlackBerry and I had the knife,” Dan Conne told The Associated Press. “I kept flashing. The wife said, ‘You’re blinding them.’ But I wanted to make sure they seen us. I wasn’t taking no chance.” The three had given up hope and thought they were going to die when rescuers came. “None of us thought we were coming out of there,” he said. While lost, the cold and hungry family could see search helicopters and airplanes flying low and slow overhead, but they couldn’t get the pilots’ attention through the thick, coastal forest vegetation. Dan Conne said the three got lost Sunday after going back for a second load of hedgehog and black trumpet mushrooms, which they sell to a local buyer. It was Belinda’s day off from her motel maid job. They left their four Chihuahua dogs at the fifth-wheel trailer at the campground where they live, and drove to first one spot, then returned for peanut butter sandwiches and went to a new spot they were not familiar with.

Lawmakers bracing for bad news By Jonathan J. Cooper The Associated Press

Belinda Conne, right, shares a laugh with an unidentified friend Sunday in her hospital bed in Gold Beach. Conne, her husband, Dan, and son, Michael, were rescued Saturday after spending six nights lost in the woods with their dog. Dan Conne hugs his dog, Jesse, on Sunday at the pound in Gold Beach. After spending six nights lost without food in the forest 10 miles northeast of Gold Beach, the Connes considered eating Jesse.

pital, Dan Conne picked up Jesse and the Chihuahuas, which had been cared for at the animal shelter after the rescue. Jesse jumped and danced around at seeing him again.

‘Nasty’ mushrooms “I don’t think we could have done it,” Belinda Conne said of eating their pet. “I probably would have starved to death first.” Dan Conne said he tried to eat a hedgehog mushroom while in the forest but found it “nasty.” He gave away the mushrooms he collected. “I don’t ever want to see one of these again,” he said.

Last meal In the heat of the afternoon, they left their jackets at the end of a gravel road. Their last meal was a peanut butter sandwich each on Sunday. The Connes spent the first night in rain, sheltering under a pile of brush. The second day, they built a lean-to, but it fell down. Heeding the advice of another mushroom picker, Michael Conne hiked uphill to try to see where they were, but returned cold, wet, and with no better idea where they were. Trying to find their way out downhill, they discovered a hollow log they could all squeeze into, and they stayed there, covering the opening with bark and hiking downhill to a creek to fill plastic bags with water. When it rained, they tried to plug the leaks with bits of wood. “It was pretty tight in there,” Dan Conne said. “I’m sure a bear would have been real comfortable in there.”

No fire They were never able to start a fire, having no matches or lighters. “Every other time we been out there, every one of us had lighters, except this time,” Dan Conne said. “Rubbing sticks together? That don’t work. Slamming rocks together? Only on TV. “There was a lot of debating, back and forth, whether to stay or go. Mikey couldn’t walk. If we had to leave him, that wasn’t an option. Belinda was down. I could barely walk. We just didn’t know which way to go.” Searchers found a trail and a few hopeful clues along the way: a can of Pepsi, mushroom-picking buckets, a few pieces of clothing. But not the people they were searching for. At one point, the Connes spotted a search helicopter close enough for them to see Bishop riding inside, but their attempt to signal went unseen. After getting out of the hos-

SALEM — The severity of state budget cuts comes into sharper focus this week, when economists tell the Legislature how much tax money they think Oregon will collect. The last two quarterly revenue forecasts have delivered disappointing news, forcing legislative leaders to recommend layoffs of state workers, the closure of a prison and smaller paychecks for workers who provide in-home care to seniors and people with disabilities. Nobody’s expecting to see an influx of money when the projections are released Tuesday, and a sharp decline would force legislators back to the negotiating table in search of more service cuts to close a budget gap that’s already expected to be at least $200 million. Whatever the new forecast shows, the estimate is needed before the Legislature can press ahead with efforts to get the budget back in balance. Lawmakers have already been under pressure from

interest groups fighting proposed cuts, and that pressure is likely to intensify this week as budget votes draw nearer. “I expect there will be a lot of interests that come in and aren’t satisfied,” said Sen. Richard Devlin, D-Tualatin, a lead budget negotiator. Previous revenue forecasts have projected that Oregon will take in $300 million less than lawmakers assumed when they finalized the $14.6 billion two-year budget last summer. The co-chairs’ budget-balancing proposal assumes this week’s forecast will lop off another $50 million to $80 million, so a downward forecast in that range wouldn’t require lawmakers to start over, said Rep. Peter Buckley, D-Ashland. Buckley said he was optimistic that Oregon will see job growth on par with positive national figures released Friday. Companies added 243,000 jobs in January, far more than economists expected, and unemployment fell to its lowest rate in three years. The lack of a sales tax means Oregon’s revenue is highly dependent on personal income taxes, which benefit from people having work.

Revised forest payments plan is unrealistic


oes tripling a tax sound like “a modest increase�? That’s the amazing claim of environmental

groups proposing a “Shared Responsibility� plan to

address the budget woes of Oregon counties as federal forest payments are ending. The group has offered its plan as an alternative to one being prepared by Democratic Reps. Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader, and Republican Rep. Greg Walden. The congressmen’s plan, which is still in the works, is expected to allow some additional logging on government lands, with proceeds helping strapped counties. The groups listed on the proposal are the Coast Range Association, Cascadia Wildlands, Geos Institute, Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, Oregon Wild, Sierra Club and the Larch Company. They oppose the congressmen’s plan, saying it would allow “clearcutting and weakened environmental safeguards on our public lands,� according to an accompanying news release from Oregon Wild and the Geos Institute. They propose instead a threepart approach that would increase the tax on private forest owners from $3.21 per thousand board feet to $9.21 per thousand board feet, a nearly threefold increase. The groups also propose transferring land from the Bureau of Land Management to the U.S. Forest Service, which they say would save $113.3 million because the BLM spends more to manage land than the Forest Service.

There’s nothing “modest� about the proposed tax increase on private logging. That’s an impressive number, but has been challenged by the Forest Service itself, according to the Oregonian. Finally, they say counties should help themselves by raising their own taxes. That’s one point with some validity. At least some of the affected counties have much lower tax rates than most other counties in the state, although local officials say taxpayers would not approve an increase. But even if county taxes could and should be raised, that’s only one leg of this three-legged stool, and the other two are unrealistic or damaging. There’s nothing “modest� about the proposed tax increase on private logging. In fact, it sounds like an effort to discourage logging on private land as well as on public land. The county payments issue is a significant problem that deserves a serious response. This “Share Responsibility� plan doesn’t do the job.

Mockery of governance is uncovered in La Pine


a Pine’s sewer and water districts have looked more like a farce than government institutions. The districts handle more than $1.5 million a year in customer money, but what they have done with tens of thousands of dollars is anyone’s guess. When it comes to keeping track of expenses, the districts don’t have records for thousands of dollars of gas bought with public money. When it comes to checks and balances, two workers made unauthorized write-offs on penalties and service charges of more than $80,000. Auditors said financial controls were so weak that embezzlement would be “virtually undetectable.� When it comes to employees following policies, one worker said she knew employees were supposed to be compensated for mileage, but she used the district’s gas card, anyway. To be fair to her,

When it comes to keeping track of expenses, the districts don’t have records for thousands of dollars of gas bought with public money. though, the board also approved paying those bills. At this point, auditors, investigators, the city of La Pine, and board members — many of them new — are untangling the mess. The plan is for the districts to be absorbed into the city of La Pine. The boards voted to verbally reprimand two employees on Thursday. New policies for handling money have been developed with more rigorous checks and balances. The district’s financial controls were so hollow almost any change will be a source of comfort.

My Nickel’s Worth Take a look at PERS database I came close to beginning a teaching career in Oregon in 1974, but by chance took a different path after student teaching and graduating from Portland State University. What follows is at least partly jealousy, I acknowledge: I recently reviewed the database (published under duress) listing the monthly payments to all PERS retirees. Like many of you, I know several retired teachers and administrators from careers in Oregon. It was easy to find their retirement income in the database. I also recently had the opportunity to meet up with a good friend who still teaches in Wisconsin. This very talented teacher discussed in great detail how much she and most of her acquaintances support the recall efforts of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Walker’s success in producing a balanced budget aside, my friend’s right as a teacher to bargain collectively has been restricted by him and she is furious. I had to tell her about my findings of teacher retirement paychecks in Oregon. My teacher friends who have recently retired receive PERS benefits of between $5,000 and $8,000 per month. She couldn’t believe that amount and asked how that could happen. Welcome to collective bargaining where both sides of the bargain are reaping the rewards of very generous retirement benefits. You truly have to read the database yourself to believe it. Not bad for nine months of work with three weeks of vacation plus 12 weeks off to recharge your batteries during the summer months. If only I ‌ coulda, woulda, shoulda. Phil Burgess Prineville

A stacked deck The GOP likes to talk about the “envy of success� or “class warfare.� That’s total smoke and mirrors and the GOP knows it. Let’s suppose we are having a friendly game of five-card draw poker. Three of us play the game like it’s always been played. We look at our cards and we select those cards we wish to get rid of and we have one draw to replace them. But there’s one person at the table who gets two draws instead of one. Who do you think is going to have the most money at the end of the game? Are the three of us bitter about the money he/she has won? Nope. We are upset because the rules that applied to most of us don’t seem to apply to a select few. You don’t need an MBA, like the one I have, to figure this out. All the 99 percent wants is an even playing field when it comes to tax policy and opportunity access. And I truly hope all of you become filthy rich — as long as you play your card game using the same rules as the rest of us do. Mark Nielson Bend

Bankers are true culprit Recently, Bill Moyer had two gentlemen on his program — Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson, authors of “Winner Take All Politics� — a revelation of the true culprit behind America’s and indeed the world’s financial disaster: the banking industry — a worldwide conglomerate of unknown, hitherto unidentified moneycrats who use the world’s money as their own personal playtoy. The book reveals just how this is all engineered so while we roil at Congress, they are just a tool which this group uses to accomplish its ends — the most recent case, getting the American taxpayer to fi-

nance a trillion-dollar (or more) bailout of the mortgage mess. Think for a moment of the millions being spent on the Republican nomination debacle (to say nothing of the low level, character-wise, of the debates!). Do you not think for one moment that the lobbyists, financed by industry (spell that “banks�) will foot all of those bills? Thanks to the Supreme Court, it leaves Congress just one step lower in character than America has them currently. Just think how many mouths those billions would feed — how many small American businesses it would support! As another Moyer guest points out, this is not the end of the recession — just the basis for another bailout. Rather, let’s see some photos (preferably wanted posters) of those ghost bankers, whoever and wherever they may be, so we know who the real enemies of America are! Russell B. Williams Sisters

Drivers ignore rules Almost every time I go to the Forum Safeway, there are one or two vehicles parked in the red zone on either side of the main east/west street. These elitist drivers are sitting there observing the law-abiding “peasants� properly parking their cars and walking to the store. I was told by the store manager that it is against the law to park there and that the police come through four or five times a day. I would like to suggest that the Bend Police Department increase their daily trips — especially between 4 and 6 p.m. — or perhaps they could install vertical “no parking� posts in that area along the curb. How about painting the asphalt red in those areas? Ken Paul Bend

Obama administration’s energy policy is irrational P

By Keith Sime resident Barack Obama’s energy policy makes no sense. While he continues to push his green energy policy with its many problems (a separate story unto itself), he has a totally irrational policy with regard to the fossil fuels upon which our very economic existence currently depends. On April 20, 2010, there was an inexcusable explosion on the Deep Water Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. In May 2010, Obama’s administration halted offshore exploration in waters deeper than 500 feet. It was only after several court skirmishes that the administration finally approved a permit to drill a deepwater oil well in late February 2011. The result of the moratorium was lost jobs and other additional adverse economic consequences. Not a month later, during Obama’s

trip to Latin America, he stopped in Brazil. In a speech on March 19 while he was there, Obama stated, â€œâ€Ś we want to partner with Brazil on the issue of energy, which is why President Rousseff and I also agreed to launch a Strategic Energy Dialogue. By some estimates, the oil you recently discovered off the shores of Brazil could amount to twice the reserves we have in the United States. We want to work with you. We want to help with technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely, and when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers. At a time when we’ve been reminded how easily instability in other parts of the world can affect the price of oil, the United States could not be happier with the potential for a new, stable source of energy.â€? (Note: The Brazilian oil fields lie 280 miles offshore in 2,000


meters of water and 4,000 meters beneath the sea floor.) Unfortunately, less than a month after Obama visited Brazil in March and made his pitch for oil to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, she was off to Beijing to sign oil contracts with two huge state-owned Chinese companies. Then, on Jan. 18, Obama announced his decision to reject a permit for TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone pipeline. A shovel-ready project almost universally supported, it is a system to transport synthetic crude oil from northeastern Alberta, Canada to refineries in Illinois, and proposed connections to refineries along the Gulf Coast of Texas. The pipeline would create an estimated 20,000 direct well-paying blue col-

lar construction jobs immediately and thousands of businesses would reap indirect business. Additionally, the pipeline would reassure American energy security and is the best and safest way to transport the enormous amount of oil needed to power our economy. According to Bloomberg, after the Jan. 18 decision on the Keystone pipeline, the Canadian prime minister told Obama during a phone call that Canada would work to diversify its markets. The natural resources minister echoed this by telling Canadian media that targeting Asian markets is a “strategic objective� of his government. In February, the prime minister is scheduled to travel to China, where expanding oil exports will be one of his primary goals. So, let me get this straight — after the Deep Horizon blowout, Obama’s

administration issues a moratorium on drilling below 500 feet in the Gulf of Mexico, causing job losses and other additional adverse economic consequences, and he removes the ban on deepwater drilling only after a court order. He then goes to Brazil, says we’ll be their best customer for Brazilian oil to come from thousands of feet below the water’s surface, makes the point that instability in other parts of the world can affect oil prices and then sees the Brazilian president go to China for contracts less than a month later. He then rejects a permit for a pipeline from Canada which would bring many jobs and millions of dollars to our economy and drives the Canadian minister to look to China to sell Canadian oil. Correction: this isn’t just irrational; it’s insane. — Keith Sime lives in Sunriver.

KENNEWICK — After 36 years of celebrating anniversaries and Valentine’s Days, of arguments and make-ups, of raising children and growing old, Larry Gettmann and Jack Frisch, of Kennewick, can’t think of themselves as anything other than “married.” It doesn’t really matter to them how the state or any church describes them. The only validation they need for their relationship comes from each other. But soon, Washington likely will confirm in law what Gettmann, 69, and Frisch, 71, already know in their hearts. They are one of almost 10,000 couples registered as domestic partners whose relationships will be redefined as marriage under a bill pending in the state Legislature. “It’s huge. It’s great,” Gettmann said. “Coming from a place where the public didn’t know anything about gay people to where we’re talking about marriage for gay people is a big thing. I had no idea it would come around in 30 years or less.” The legislation is inspiring a spectrum of reactions across the state and in the Mid-Columbia — joy, excitement, fear, anxiety, hope, distaste, anger.

“It’s huge. It’s great. Coming from a place where the public didn’t know anything about gay people to where we’re talking about marriage for gay people is a big thing. I had no idea it would come around in 30 years or less.” — Larry Gettmann, gay resident, Washington

Supporters see it as an affirmation of equality and human rights, while opponents believe they are fighting to preserve the moral fabric of society. “Redefining marriage has serious other consequences,” said Father Richard Sedlacek of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Kennewick. “It opens the door to polygamy. It opens the door for all kinds of things, all different types of relationships. I just think it’s a bad sign. I think it’s a sign of a declining culture.” If the bill passes, Washington will become the seventh state in the nation, plus the District of Columbia, to allow gay couples to legally use the word “marriage” to define their relationships. The bill passed 28-21 in the state Senate on Wednesday,

and Olympia insiders say it has enough votes to pass in the House. It will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee today and could come to a House floor vote in a matter of days. And with an endorsement by Gov. Chris Gregoire, it seems all but certain that the way marriage is defined in Washington state law is about to undergo a significant change — unless voters decide otherwise in November. Opponents have promised to collect petition signatures toward putting a referendum on the November ballot to let people decide whether they want to legalize same-sex marriage in the state. “I hope the people will rise up and vote against this,” said Rep. Brad Klippert, R-Kennewick. “It goes back to my faith. God is promised in our Scripture to bless the nation for those who follow him. For those who do not, there are curses. I think we could really use God’s help right now.” As recently as 1998, Washington joined most of the nation in passing a Defense of Marriage Act defining marriage as between one man and one woman. The state Legislature in 2007 passed a law allowing gay couples to register as domestic partners, then expanded the legal rights of domestic partners in 2009 to include “everything but marriage.”

Gazzara starred in ‘Run For Your Life’ By Matt Schudel The Washington Post

Ben Gazzara, an actor with a quiet, brooding intensity who was featured in films and on Broadway and who starred in the 1960s television series “Run For Your Life,” died Feb. 3 in New York City. He was 81. A friend, Suzanne Mados, told the Associated Press that Gazzara was in hospice care for pancreatic cancer. As a young actor, Gazzara possessed a dark, controlled energy that made him an emerging stage star in the 1950s. He originated the role of Brick in Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and was nominated for a Tony Award for “A Hatful of Rain,” a 1955 drama in which he portrayed a war veteran addicted to drugs. He had a major role in the 1959 film “Anatomy of a Murder,” playing an Army officer charged with a revenge killing after his wife was allegedly raped. He seemed to be an emerging star, yet he never achieved the same level of fame as two of his classmates at New York’s Actors Studio, Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. Newman took the role of Brick when “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” was made into a film in 1958, and McQueen became a star of Hollywood action films. In what he considered an act of professional desperation, Gazzara turned to television.

‘Run For Your Life’ From 1965 to 1968, in “Run For Your Life,” he played Paul Bryan, a lawyer with a terminal illness who was determined to pack as much adventure into his remaining days as possible. Gazzara considered the show formulaic, saying, “I could almost do the next show without reading the script,” but “Run For Your Life” has retained a cult following for decades. On the final day of shooting “Run For Your Life,” Gazzara ran into actor and director John Cassavetes, who offered him a role in his new movie. The 1970 film, “Husbands,” showcased Gazzara, Cassavetes and Peter Falk as three perplexed men trying to get over the death of a friend. In two other films with Cassavetes, Gazzara played a strip-club owner in “The Killing of a Chinese Bookie” (1976) and a theater director in “Opening Night” (1977). All three films became favorites with a younger generation of

moviemakers, who admired the aura of cool toughness that Gazzara brought to all his roles. “There’s something so energized and unapologetically male about Ben — he’s a throwback to an American archetype associated with Hemingway,” Sean Penn told the Los Angeles Times in 1998. Gazzara continued to appear on Broadway through the 1970s. He earned Tony Award nominations for his roles in 1975 in Eugene O’Neill’s “Hughie” and David Scott Milton’s “Duet,” and he was nominated again in 1976 for a revival of Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

In demand in the 1990s He spent much of the 1980s in Italy, where he lived in a villa with his third wife and acted in Italian films. But by the 1990s, Gazzara found himself in demand by the young directors who admired his earlier work. From 1996 to 1999, Gazzara appeared in 14 movies, plus several TV movies and miniseries. Playwright and director David Mamet cast him as a whitecollar criminal in “The Spanish Prisoner” (1997). He played a pornography mogul in the cult classic “The Big Lebowski,” directed by Joel and Ethan Coen in 1998. He had the role of the angry father of an ex-convict in Vincent Gallo’s “Buffalo ’66” in 1998 and played a Brooklyn mob boss in Spike Lee’s 1999 film, “Summer of Sam.” “He never makes anything obvious,” Mamet said in 1998, “and that’s the best thing you can say about an actor.” Biagio Anthony Gazzara was born Aug. 28, 1930, in New York City. His parents were Sicilian immigrants, and he grew up speaking Italian. “Immigrant Italians weren’t geared toward literature,” he said in 1998, “so movies were our novels, and I grew up on the best: Cagney, Bogart, Cary Grant, Gable, Wallace Beery — wonderful actors. Then when I was 12, I was in a play at the Boys Club, and once I heard the applause I was sold.” He studied acting at the New School in New York and later at the Actors Studio under Lee Strasberg. Besides Newman and McQueen, his classmates included James Dean, Julie Harris and Geraldine Page. Gazzara’s first two marriages, to actresses Louise Erickson and Janice Rule, ended in divorce.

Participants in the Super Bowl Sunday Dam Run run the course in Prineville on Sunday.

Dam run Continued from B1 “We fundraise all year round,” said Ernie Brooks, Crook County High School’s head track and field coach. “To have someone like Norm organize this for us is terrific. It’s so nice to show up, be a worker and to just have a bit of a break.” The Crook County School District slashed funding for its sports programs four years ago as its state funding decreased. Currently, $150,000 is al-

47 workers laid off from Tillamook cheese factory The Associated Press TILLAMOOK — Changes at the Tillamook Cheese Factory have left 47 workers jobless as the cooperative streamlines its operations in Oregon, Idaho and Utah. The workers were assigned to the factory’s packaging operation. The Oregonian reports that they punched out for the last time on Saturday. The Tillamook County Creamery Association announced last month it was cutting the packaging operation because it was inefficient and required cheese to be shipped from the creamery’s Boardman factory to Tillamook for aging, then out to Idaho to be shredded and sliced, then back to Tillamook for sorting and distribution.

located for all programs. That money goes for transportation, some coaching salaries, equipment and entry fees. The funds are not enough to support sports in the area, so all coaches fundraise to keep their programs going. In the coming months, Brooks plans to host a “jogathon” fundraiser as well as a run, dinner and auction night. With budget season approaching, Crook County will again have to allocate funds for sports. Last year, the school district board voted 3-2 to boost sports programs by

doubling its contribution from $75,000 to $150,000. The county also switched its league to the hybrid Intermountain Conference. That may translate into lower expenditures on travel. Even if the district’s financial picture brightens dramatically, it’s likely Smith will still be tossing some money toward track and field. “It’s absolutely important to have this sport,” Smith said. “It’s about being healthy, and if you got your health, you got everything.” — Reporter: 541-617-7837,

marine reserves The Associated Press PORTLAND — Oregon’s state Legislature is on track to add three no-fishing marine reserves off the coast. That would amount to 38 square miles of ocean wilderness, despite continued concerns from fishing groups, The Oregonian reported. Coastal legislators from both parties have signed off on Senate Bill 1510, partly out of concerns that ocean conservation groups might otherwise push a statewide ballot measure to cover more of Oregon’s biologically rich territorial sea. “I believe this bill protects the coast from an economic Armageddon that could result from a ballot measure,” Sen. Betsy Johnson, a Scappoose Democrat, told the Senate environment committee last week. The committee unanimously voted in favor of sending the bill to the Senate floor for a vote. The bill calls for authorizing reserves and less-restrictive marine protected areas at Cape Falcon south of Cannon Beach, Cascade Head near Lincoln City and at Cape Perpetua near Yachats. Reserves allow research and boating, but prohibit fishing, crabbing, pipelines and industrial activity. If approved, the areas would join two smaller reserves at Redfish Rocks near Port Orford and Otter Rocks near Depoe Bay. The reserves authorization is a top priority for conservation groups. Marine reserves aim to increase fish numbers, provide a refuge for fish, boost ocean research and allow scientists to gauge the impact of fishing on fish populations. Reserves allow boating and research, but bar fishing, crabbing, pipelines and industrial activity such as wave and wind energy. Less-restrictive protected areas generally allow some fishing and crabbing but not bottom trawling, seen as most destructive of habitat. Oregon’s territorial sea covers a roughly three-mile strip off its coast. It is home to kelp forests, pinnacles and rocky reefs hosting hundreds of species. Marine scientists warn that the proposed reserves may be too small to be effective. The reserves would be too much, however, for many fishermen and charter boat operators, already facing federal restrictions.

Helping others, one bar of soap at a time

of the times

By Kate Santich The Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. — Shawn Seipler was a highly paid global sales executive for an e-commerce business with a wife and four children he adored, two expensive homes and a quick rise up the corporate ladder. He was also spending three or four nights a week on the road, the cities a blur of one hotel room after another. One day in 2008, on a business trip to Minnesota, he happened to look at the little soaps and shampoo bottles that greeted him at each new destination. And he wondered: What happens to all those things? Do they just get tossed in the garGREEN bage when I check out? It turned out to be a query that would change his life — and quite possibly the lives of thousands of people around the world. Seipler is the executive director and co-founder of an Orlando-based nonprofit called Clean the World. In less than three years, his vision has grown from a seat-of-thepants soap-recycling project based in a friend’s garage to an international charity that has distributed 9.5 million bars of recycled soap in 45 countries, including the U.S. “It’s nuts,” Seipler admits as he leads a tour of his charity’s headquarters in downtown Orlando. “This year, we had a 450 percent increase all around: the number of hotel rooms we serve, the amount of revenue, the number of jobs created.” Seipler, 35, is a perpetualidea machine — a man who wakes up at 2 a.m. because his mind is churning over what to do next. He has joined forces with his longtime friend and business partner Paul Till, 48, who moved here from Houston to pursue the then-untested theory that those 1 million bars of hotel soap being dumped in landfills every day in the U.S. could be put to better use.

ORLANDO, Fla. _ With a salary and some stability at long last, you might expect Shawn Seipler and Paul Till at least to catch their breath, if not rest on their laurels. Although Clean the World went from losing $487,000 in 2010 to clearing $185,000 in 2011, there is still borrowed money to pay back. But other nonprofits have since started recycling soap — most notably the Global Soap Project — just as many hotels are moving to refillable-liquid containers to eliminate the waste of bar soap and tiny bottles. Success cannot stand still. In 2010, when they were still losing money, Clean the World’s founders formed Clean the World Global, a for-profit venture that could attract investors and get bank loans that a nonprofit couldn’t. That eventually led to an encounter with Oviedo-based Eco Convergence Group, a futuristic technology-engineering company targeting the sustainability market. Eco Convergence CEO Robert Ramsey, asked to check out Clean the World by an outside investor, liked what he found enough to launch a joint venture. See Next / C8

To free up space, some go all digital By Omar L. Gallaga Cox Newspapers

AUSTIN, Texas — Sometimes certain realities of physics make you take drastic steps. For Christina Gomez, it took 900 square feet, the size of the home she shares with her husband, to make her get rid of hundreds of books, DVDs and CDs — part of three storage units of stuff she was holding on to — and go almost completely digital with the music, TV shows, movies and books she consumes. A year and a half ago, the couple, both political consultants who do work in both Austin and San Antonio, combined husTECH band Evan’s apartment goods with the items from Christina’s big house. “It really did look like an episode of ‘Hoarders,’” Gomez said. “Something has to give. I Half-Priced everything,” she said, referring to the chain of Dallas-based stores that buys used books and other media. Though her husband still insists on keeping a shelf of books he loves (“He’s one of those ‘out of my cold, dead hands’ types,” Gomez jokes), she only has 15 books left and two DVDs — “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “The Eagles: Hell Freezes Over.” She listens to digital music she ripped from CDs she owned and on the digital music service Spotify. The couple watches movies and TV shows on Hulu, Netflix and Amazon with an iMac computer hooked up to their TV. See Digital / C8

What’s black and white, with a skunkish look to its cover, And from bark wrests such bite it makes lions fall over? Meet the African crested rat, or Lophiomys imhausi, a creature so large, flamboyantly furred and thickly helmeted it hardly seems a member of the international rat consortium. Yet it is indeed a rat, a deadly dirty rat, its superspecialized pelt permeated with potent toxins harvested from trees. As a recent report in the SCIENCE journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B makes clear, the crested rat offers one of the most extreme cases of a survival strategy rare among mammals: deterring predators with chemical weapons. Venoms and repellents are hardly rare in nature: Many insects, frogs, snakes, jellyfish and other phyletic characters use them with abandon. But mammals generally rely, for defense or offense, on teeth, claws, muscles, keen senses or quick wits. Every so often, however, a mammalian lineage discovers the wonders of chemistry, of nature’s burbling beakers and tubes. And somewhere in the distance a mad cackle sounds. Skunks and zorilles mimic the sulfurous, anoxic stink of a swamp. The male duck-billed platypus infuses its heel spurs with a cobralike poison. The hedgehog declares: Don’t quite get the point of my spines? Allow me to sharpen their sting with a daub of venom I just chewed off the back of a Bufo toad. See Toxic / C6

An African crested rat smears its pelt with a tree toxin. Mammals are not known to use chemical warfare in deterring predators, but sometimes chemistry becomes a tool for survival.

Savings bond gift matures into a family disagreement Dear Abby: I’m 30 years old and have a close relationship with my mother, but something is bothering me. When I was a little girl, my grandmother gave me a U.S. savings bond for my birthday. It has matured to its full value. My mother refuses to give it to me. She said that my grandmother intended it as a wedding gift. The last time I brought it up, she got teary and emotional. When my grandmother died 18 years ago, it was tremendously painful for my mother. I think the reason Mom won’t give me the money is it makes her feel like her mom is still around. By letting go of the bond, she would be letting go of one more piece of my grandmother. I also think it makes her sad to picture her mom not being there at my wedding. Despite all this, I can’t help but feel she’s using this to have some control over me. I’m studying for my master’s degree in special education, and some extra money would be helpful at the moment. I don’t plan on marrying anyone anytime soon. Does my mother have the right to withhold the bond and decide how and when I can use the money? Should I drop the issue and let her choose when to give it to me? Please help, I need your advice. — 30-year-old Child Dear “Child�: Your grandmother gave you the savings bond as a BIRTHDAY gift. When you became an adult, it should have been given to you then. You’re a big girl now, and whether you decide to marry or not it should be yours to do with as you wish. It’s time to hand your mother a large box of tissues and have a heart-to-heart talk with her about that savings bond. Don’t let her off the hook, and don’t be surprised if she finally admits she spent the money. Dear Abby: How does one let a gum chewer know, tactfully,

that the smell is revolting? Besides the irritation and rudeness of chewing/popping with one’s mouth open, certain smells often affect me physically. From a young age, I have suffered from migraine headaches, which can bring on temporary loss of vision and vomiting. The scent of certain mints — like spearmint — triggers migraines. My doctor has warned me to avoid these triggers. However, in a confined area like an airplane, or sandwiched between two chewers at a concert, it’s impossible. I become violently ill from the smell. I have tried politely explaining my situation, but the chewer is often indifferent, indignant or unsympathetic. Abby, I’m at a loss. My husband and I often leave concerts we were looking forward to because of this problem. What can one do or say in a situation when sitting for hours in an assigned seat next to a gum chewer? — Hurting in Virginia Beach, Va. Dear Hurting: In a theater, the first thing you should do is explain the problem to the gum chewer just as you did to me. Say that the smell of certain mints triggers migraines that sometimes result in spontaneous vomiting, and ask if the person can dispose of the gum before you become ill. If the person refuses, ask an usher to seat you elsewhere. When you’re on an airplane and trapped in similar circumstances, get up and ask a flight attendant to locate a seat for you that’s far enough away so you won’t be affected. In most instances, you will be accommodated. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Monday, Feb. 6, 2012 By JACQUELINE BIGAR This year you open up to different perspectives. At the same time, you open up to different voices within you. You often wonder which voice to listen to — the cool, logical one, or the emotional, passionate humming in your mind. Through experiencing the end results and possibilities of both approaches, you will know what works best for you. If you are single, your desirability is unquestionable. Forming a long-term, stable relationship could test your ability to relate. If you are attached, do remember that it takes two to make a relationship work. Be less ego-driven. LEO often cares about what you do but approaches these comparable concerns differently. 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) HHHHH You have a lot of bottledup creativity. You might be somewhat reticent to let it come out. Don’t be. Your ingenuity can forge interesting ideas, make a project work and/or solve a personal matter. Lose the word “no� from your vocabulary. Tonight: Let this same energy flow into the night. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Could you be restricting your thinking? Consider the possibility. Instead of slamming doors shut or thinking in either/or terms, make a situation possible. Often, choices are self-imposed. You can do what you want and please someone else. Tonight: Cocoon a little. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Keep doors open, and continue to encourage a conversation. You might not agree with a loved one, nor do you need to. Respect where this person is coming from and understand your long-term goals for the two of you. Tonight: Hanging out is fun to do. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Issues surrounding funds or a financial matter come up, forcing some thought and decisionmaking. You alone know your limits, but perhaps you don’t see the possibilities. Find a money guru or friend you respect and get some feedback. Tonight: Treat yourself well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might want to think through an idea that works well for you. Don’t let your morning mood float into your day. You can accomplish

what you want, even if that looks like a relaxing day. It is in you; it can happen. Tonight: Where the fun is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HH Assuming a low profile might feel good and gives you time to think and evaluate. You might not like everything that you hear, but it will be OK. When there is no response, others will spill the beans. Detach and observe. Tonight: Take some muchneeded time for yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Once you get past a problem, you will be off dealing with a new possibility. You beam, and others respond. Your understanding opens up a new set of possibilities. Zero in on what you want. Another person’s unpredictability marks a decision. Tonight: Where people are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH You are on top of your game. Listen to what is happening within your immediate circle. You also might want to note others’ motivation. They might not be coming from where you are coming from. Listen to a suggestion. Tonight: Late, late, late. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Impulsiveness often draws mixed results, yet this afternoon it could draw exactly what you desire. Do nothing halfway, and remain realistic about your limitations. Your energy and optimism determine the results. Tonight: The only answer is yes. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You think in terms of success through employing another approach. You might wonder why you often get a certain result. Remain sensitive to a family member who could be acting in an erratic manner right now. Tonight: Go along with a loved one’s desires. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH When everyone starts acting on his or her desires, you start smiling. You like unpredictability, which you seem to be drawing into your life right now. Establishing limits might be important, too. Tonight: You, too, can be spontaneous. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Pace yourself, knowing the limits of a situation and your energy. A partner could be having a case of the blues. Be supportive without being overly indulgent. You will get excellent results. The unexpected occurs financially. Choose to take risks carefully. Tonight: Whatever works for you. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Toxic Continued from C1 Other mammals chemically gird themselves against smaller foes: Capuchin monkeys ward off mosquitoes and ticks with extracts gathered from millipedes and ants, while black-tailed deer rub themselves liberally with potent antimicrobial secretions produced by glands in their hooves. According to William Wood, a chemistry professor at Humboldt State University in California, these secretions have been shown to be effective against a broad array of micro-organisms, including acne bacteria and athlete’s-foot fungus, which could explain why teenage deer are especially diligent with the hoof-rubbing routine right before the annual deer prom. For each newly identified instance of a chemical fix, researchers seek to identify its benefits, drawbacks and evolutionary back story, and to compare it with other known cases of chemical arms. Distinctive themes have emerged.

Strange hair In their fetchingly titled paper, “A Poisonous Surprise Under the Coat of the African Crested Rat,” Jonathan Kingdon and Fritz Vollrath of Oxford University and their colleagues described the complex of traits that give rise to the rodent’s rottenness. The researchers determined that the rat spends many hours gnawing on the bark and roots of the Acokanthera tree, from which it extracts the same curaretype heart toxin that African hunters have traditionally used to kill elephants. The rat then slavers the toxic masticant onto tracts of specialized hairs running along its flank. Those hairs, when observed under a scanning electron microscope, look very different from ordinary fur, Vollrath said. Each outer shaft is stiff and full of holes — like a dead cactus, he said — and inside are a series of long, fluffy microfibers. The researchers showed that the applied toxin seeps through the outer holes of the hairs and is wicked up and stored by the fibers,

lending the rat twinned flank strips of doom. One little nip is all it would take to sicken or even kill a predator, and the crested rat is well equipped to endure exploratory bites, Vollrath said: Its hide is unusually thick, and its head is helmeted like a turtle’s. Whether through trial and error or by following an enlightened elder’s example, Africa’s many carnivores give the rat a wide berth.

Skunks vs. rats In contrast to the crested rat, skunks synthesize their toxins from scratch, yet they, too, have taken chemical defense to a highly derived, almost mannered extreme. Skunks stand alone in mammaldom, and though they once were considered a kind of weasel, the world’s 10 or so species have recently been assigned a family plaque of their own, the Mephitidae, from the Latin for “bad odor.” Through anal scent glands just inside the rectum at the base of the tail, skunks generate an extreme version of the familiar spray with which carnivores mark their territory, wildly accentuating the chemical components that we and most other mammals judge to be very bad news. At the heart of skunk spray is a thiol, the signature of nasty environments high in lethal hydrogen sulfide and low in oxygen — places like mines, swamps, and oil and gas wells. “Our nose is able to detect thiols at extremely low levels, parts per billion,” Wood said. “We needed to stay away from areas with low oxygen, where we could die.” Skunks, he added, “have come along and capitalized on this.” Capitalized and canonized — or maybe cannonized. The skunk’s scent glands have evolved into structures that look like swollen nipples, each able to swivel independently of the other to take perfect aim, and to perfectly calibrated effect (as can be seen in spectacular video on the PBS program “Nature”).

Magic potion A good defense means never taking offense. Research-

ers have been impressed by the ardor with which monkeys in the field prospect for novel forms of insect repellent, and their willingness to withstand extremely irritating chemicals for the sake of rebuffing the bloodsuckers that plague them. “Capuchin monkeys are notoriously generalist and destructive in their sampling,” said Jessica Lynch Alfaro, the associate director of the Institute for Society and Genetics at the University of California, Los Angeles. “They break everything open, and you have to watch out or they’ll drop branches on your head.” Every so often, they come upon a product that looks or smells promising, at which point they crack it open and start anointing themselves. They tear up chili peppers to release the capsaicin, rip apart millipedes to procure a few droplets of searing benzoquinones. If they find a nest of carpenter ants, pay dirt! The monkeys plop down on top and roll every which way, to soak up the ants’ formidable formic acid supply. Such treatments are clearly painful. “Capuchin monkeys get very agitated when they’re anointing themselves,” said Lynch Alfaro, who with colleagues recently reviewed capuchin anointing behavior for The American Journal of Primatology. “But they’re keeping off parasites, and they seem to have a high threshold for pain.” Besides, it’s not all pain and suffering. Anointing is a supremely social affair, and one rubbing monkey soon attracts others. “They get into such a frenzy that the social order breaks down; everyone is anointing with everyone else,” Lynch Alfaro said. “It’s like a big, wild party.” They may be black and blue, but the magic potion is spread all over.

Signs Continued from C1 It’s hard to determine the size of the sign recycling industry. It includes a shop at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla, Wash., as well as around 12 companies in the United States, said Ryan Middaugh, the Prineville company’s general manager. And yet, the nature of the business — in essence, stripping off the old laminated information on a sign and leaving bare aluminum — is delightfully simple, environmentally friendly and cost-effective, said Wendie Every, an owner. The Prineville company, which started in 2004, employs four workers full time and one part time, Middaugh said. Strip with water, rinse with water, dry. Repeat as necessary. That’s it. “It’s pretty much a nobrainer,” she said, “because it saves them money. It saves the environment. It saves man hours. It’s a winwin for everyone.” At Northwest Sign Recycling’s office off U.S. Highway 26 in northwest Prineville, signs such as “SLIPPERY WHEN WET OR FROSTY” adorn the walls. But the main attraction is a table a bit longer and wider than a Ping-Pong table. When powered on, a device resembling a buffing wheel glides over signs lying on the table and pelts the signs with water pressurized at 36,000 psi. The water blasts the decals to bits. A hose connected to the device, known as a hydrostripper, sucks the bits away for disposal later. After the hydrostripper finishes its work, an employee brings the signs to an easel, sprays them with water, shooting off any re-

maining flecks of decals, and goes over the signs with a sponge. Finally, the employee sets the signs on a rack to drip dry. Signs that once warned “SPEED LIMIT 25” give way to blank sheets of aluminum. The work goes on 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. And if everything goes according to plan, a swing shift will start sometime in the next year and a half to accommodate increasing demand, Every and Middaugh said. At a table not far from the hydrostripping machine, Middaugh took a dried piece of aluminum in the shape of an octagon, sanded the sharp areas, pulled back the adhesive on a highly reflective “STOP” decal, rolled it through a

press and snipped off extra white portions around the edges. Northwest Sign Recycling sells signs such as this one to smaller municipalities that can’t run their own sign shops, Every said. Later this year the company will add a separate room to the factory expressly for this process, which they call refacing. Middaugh held up his newly labeled “STOP” sign. “Looks the same as a new one,” he said. — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

They’re both aggressive, and they’ve got a nice (business) model they’ve developed that is making a difference, not only in the U.S. but in the world.” The two companies have launched a head-spinning project that begins with picking up organic waste from hotels and converting it to fuel. They also plan to manufacture a geopolymer-based concrete that is lighter, stronger, fastercuring, less expensive and vastly cleaner to produce than traditional Portland cement. Finally, there are elaborate designs to capture carbon-dioxide emissions and use them

to feed algae farms, which will then be used to feed tilapia — the second-most-popular fish in America. And the fish waste can then be used in hydroponic gardening to grow organic vegetables. “Quite a jump from soap recycling, huh?” Seipler said. He and Till are busily working to recruit investors and meeting with local politicians in advance of building a proposed 10-story, $44 million headquarters on their current property — a few blocks north of the new Amway Center.

The project would create at least 300 direct green jobs, Seipler said, and up to 1,000 indirect ones. — Kate Santich, The Orlando Sentinel

Continued from C1 And with an iPad and two Amazon Kindles in the home, Christina always has e-books to read. Her home is near downtown San Antonio, but she keeps an apartment in Austin for the legislative season. Because of her cramped living quarters and constant mobility, she’s glad she did the Great Purge on her discs and books. “When you’re a political consultant, you move all the time, for races. Clients need you. You can’t really be bogged down with a humongous collection of books.”

The early purgers Gomez might be an extreme case, but she’s not alone. Sales of electronic books last year surpassed sales of printed books, and sales of digital music on services such as iTunes and Amazon MP3 topped CDs and vinyl for the first time, taking 50.3 percent of the market in 2011, according to a Nielsen and Billboard report. But as shoppers shift to digital content, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re clearing their shelves of jewel-boxed CDs and heavy hardbacks in one big purge. For one thing, the market might be getting saturated if you’re trying to sell your collections. Jason Spears, owner of Cheapo Records, Austin’s go-to place for selling used CDs, says his store isn’t buying as much as it used to and not offering as much money for CDs and DVDs as it once did. The store already has about 70,000

CDs, 100,000 vinyl records and more than 20,000 DVDs available. “I tell people a lot of the time that they have great stuff, but if you had brought it to me a year ago, I could have offered you $300. Now it’s maybe $100,” he said. “I can’t pay $5 a disc like I used to because I might not be able to sell it.” Spears said that he does still see sellers come in with 300 discs to get rid of because they’re going digital, but most of the early adopters who were filling up their iPods four or five years ago are no longer buying or selling in the physical world. “People have purged their collections already and now they’re done,” Spears said. He joked, “Now would be a great time for the Great Digital Wipeout so everyone has to come in and rebuy them all over again.” Keith Gaddis, one of the founders and chief technology officer at Austin startup PublikDemand, has been clearing out boxes of CDs since the early 2000s. He says he values the convenience of

online music, quick-download ebooks and movie streaming over what he sees as cumbersome physical formats. “I can carry hundreds of thousands of books in my backpack. I’ve always hated physical media because it gets scratched up,” Gaddis said. His family keeps a few DVDs in the house, like Disney movies for his young son, but even some of those movies have been converted to digital formats that Gaddis can easily access on a videostreaming device connected to the TV. He might buy a vinyl album or a collector’s item once in a while to help out struggling musicians, but overall, “I haven’t bought CDs in years.” Even his vast collection of MP3s has been forgotten in favor of searchable music services that deliver whatever he wants instantly. “I found I was never listening to it (his music collection). I used to be a real pack rat about my life. But the clutter has been gone for so long that I don’t really think about it anymore.”

A more gradual shift

The Amazon Kindle e-reader is just one way that consumers are going digital.

Lorie Marrero, a professional organizer who runs the website ClutterDiet. com, said that most of us don’t digitize and ditch our media collections in one fell swoop the way Gomez did. “Most people make these transitions gradually rather than all at once,” she said. “They start using the new medium, convert (or) repurchase some old things they want to have for sure, and eventually they purge the things they weren’t using anyway.” Marrero says that one thing many don’t consider when they give away or sell their old CDs or DVDs is that they no longer legally own the digital copies they have ripped and kept on their computers and mobile devices. Though

we’ve yet to see a wave of lawsuits or criminal charges for that kind of copyright violation (record companies tend to go after online file sharing instead), penalties can run from $250 to $750,000 and even involve prison time. There are other drawbacks to going digital: Digital music often lacks the artwork and liner notes you’d find in a CD or vinyl album, and in the case of TV shows and movies, online services like Netflix and Hulu can have a spotty selection that’s subject to change at any time. A digitally downloaded season of a TV show is also more difficult to lend out to a friend than, say, a DVD set of “Breaking Bad.” But for those us of who find our homes filled up with books that are never reread, DVDs packed with extras that will never be watched and CDs that haven’t been listened to in years, the march to digital seems all but inevitable. Even booksellers, part of a publishing industry that has been the last to get overtaken by digital upstarts, say they’re not myopic about the future. Kathy Doyle Thomas, executive vice president with Half Price Books, says she expects the company’s market share to shrink in the future, but that even with the success of the Amazon Kindle and Apple’s iBooks, her company’s stores are still busy, especially in a reading town like Austin. People, she says, still want to be around books, even if it’s not their books in their own home. Thomas said she recently spotted a customer using an ereader in the middle of a store. “I thought, ‘Really?’” she recounted with a hearty laugh.

Giants top Pats in Super Bowl thriller • Eli Manning takes MVP as New York beats New England 21-17

Julia Mancuso celebrates on the podium after winning a women’s World Cup super-G on Sunday.

Americans win back-to-back GARMISCHPARTENKIRCHEN, Germany — Julia Mancuso’s wait for her first win of the season is over. Lindsey Vonn will have to wait a little longer to break another record. Mancuso won a super-G on Sunday for her first World Cup victory of the season, while Vonn skied off the course and did not finish. It was the first time two different American women have won World Cup races on consecutive days since December 2006, when it was also Vonn and Mancuso. Vonn captured her milestone 50th World Cup win in a downhill on the same slope a day earlier. But she was forced to wait for her start for about three minutes while officials fixed a gate and Vonn could not hold her line Sunday after hitting a bump midway down the icy piste. She was looking for a record 18th super-G career win. Mancuso produced a clean run in freezing conditions, with bright sunlight and deep shadows alternating on the Kandahar course and making for poor visibility. She won on the same slope where she clinched the superG silver medal at last year’s World Championship. “I thought when I crossed the finish line, ‘If that wasn’t good enough, then I don’t know what is,’ ” Mancuso said. “I didn’t feel like I had the best run, but I kept my skis stable the whole way. “The course was set really fast, besides a couple of turns, and I knew I had to push myself to the limit and make those technical sectors clean, then it was just a case of trying to go as fast as possible. You couldn’t see, I just had to try to stay on it.” For more skiing coverage, see D4.

INDIANAPOLIS — Take that, Brady. You too, Peyton. Eli Manning is the big man in the NFL after one-upping Tom Brady and leading the New York Giants to a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Sunday’s Super Bowl — in older brother Peyton’s house, at that. Just as Manning did four years ago when the Giants ruined New England’s perfect season, he guided them 88 yards to the decisive touchdown, which the Patriots didn’t contest as Ahmad Bradshaw ran 6 yards with 57 seconds left. Patriots coach Bill Belichick reasoned the Giants would run the clock down and kick a short field goal, so he gambled by allowing the six points. The gamble failed. And now Manning not only has stamped himself as the elite quarterback he claimed to be when the season began — in the same class

as Brady — he’s beaten the Patriots in two thrilling Super Bowls. The Giants (13-7), who stood 7-7 in mid-December, now own the football world, and Manning owns two Super Bowl MVP awards, the same number as Brady. It was a classic I-can-top-that showdown with the outcome in doubt until the last pass fell to the turf as the last second ticked off the clock. Manning finished 30 for 40 for 296 yards and one touchdown, while Brady was 27 for 41 for 276 yards with two TDs and one interception. “It’s been a wild game, a wild season,” Manning said. “This isn’t about one person. It’s about one team, a team coming together.” See Giants / D5

Redmond’s Chance Lindquist is among several Panthers with state title aspirations.

BASKETBALL Most teams have two weeks of regular-season play remaining before the state play-in rounds; state tournaments begin in late February and early March, depending on classification

Bulletin file

Madras, with Abby Scott, is a state title contender in Class 4A.

he quest for titles is about to begin. The state postseason is just around the corner for many of Central Oregon’s high school winter athletic teams. This weekend, area teams will compete in wrestling and swimming district competitions, while local basketball teams are less than three weeks away from the state play-in round. Here in Central Oregon, Bend’s Juniper Swim & Fitness Center plays host to the Class 5A Special District 1 swim meet. Swimmers from Bend High, Mountain View, Summit and Ashland will compete this Friday and Saturday for spots in the 5A state meet Feb. 17-18 at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham. The Storm boys and girls, winners of the City of Bend meet late last month, look to advance enough swimmers to state — only district winners automatically qualify — to challenge for boys and girls state titles. Bend High’s Doug Steinhauff and Mountain View’s Brandon Deckard both could win multiple individual state championships if they can advance through this weekend’s district meet unscathed. Also this Friday and Saturday, Madras High hosts the Class 4A/3A/ 2A/1A Special District 2 meet at the Madras Aquatic Center. The White Buffaloes are the reigning SD2 boys champions. Having advanced swimmers to state last season as a second-year program, the Madras boys hope to be trophy contenders this year. The 4A/3A/2A/1A state meet will also be held Feb. 17-18 at Mt. Hood CC.

Powering up on your bike • You can change your training experience by upgrading from a heart-rate monitor to a power meter By Laura Winberry For The Bulletin


or competition or for more casual purposes, perhaps you use a heart-rate monitor when riding your bicycle. Maybe you even follow a weekly plan based on your calculated heart-rate zones.

What if, however, you want to take cycling to the next level? What other training tools are available? Among them is the power meter — a device that tells a rider just how much power he or she is putting out, measured in watts. For any developing cyclist, especially a competitive one, using a power meter is almost essential. According to Joe Friel, a world-renowned endurance sports coach and the author of several of the cycling world’s goto training bibles, working with a power meter is not even a question. It’s the answer. See Power / D6

Joe Kline/The Bulletin

A freehub power meter is visible as Jerry Lear, of Bend, trains during an indoor cycling class at Powered by Bowen in Bend on Friday. The freehub power meter is located on the bike’s rear hub and measures the power output of the rider.

S   B Tennis • U.S. beats Belarus 5-0 to advance to Fed Cup playoff: Serena Williams and Christina McHale won singles matches and Venus Williams returned from a five-month layoff Sunday, sending the United States past Belarus 5-0 in the first round of the Fed Cup in Worcester, Mass. By blanking Belarus in World Group II, the Americans head to a playoff in April in hopes of playing their way back into the top tier of Fed Cup after getting bounced last year. Venus Williams and Liezel Huber completed the shutout with a doubles victory, defeating Darya Kustova and Anastasiya Yakimova 6-1, 62. This was Williams’ first sanctioned match since the opening round of the U.S. Open. • Monaco defeats Berlocq in Vina del Mar final: Juan Monaco beat Carlos Berlocq 6-3, 67 (1), 6-1 in an all-Argentina final at the Vina del Mar VTR Open on Sunday in Chile to win his fourth ATP title.

It was the first title for the 29-year-old Russian since St. Petersburg in 2010. • Berdych wins Open Sud de France: Tomas Berdych won his seventh career title Sunday, beating defending champion Gael Monfils 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 in the Open Sud de France final in Montpellier. The top-seeded Czech broke for a 5-3 lead in the final set on a double fault from Monfils. He wrapped it up with his 12th ace.

Basketball • Seattle working to bring NBA back: The city of Seattle has been working behind the scenes the past eight months with a hedge-fund manager to bring an NBA team back to town — possibly as early as next fall if the Sacramento Kings fail to get a satisfactory deal for a new arena, newly released documents show. The city turned over the documents to The Seattle Times on Friday under a public records request. The documents included the agenda for a meeting between the parties on Dec. 13, with topics including “Review of Basic Deal Structure,” “City Debt Capacity” and “Financing Issues.” A Seattle native who now lives in San Francisco, 44-year-old hedge-fund manager Christopher Hansen, approached the city about his desire to buy an NBA team and build an arena south of Safeco Field, the documents show. Hansen told city officials an arena could be built with minimal impact on taxpayers.

Winter sports • Vylegzhanin, Johaug win WCup cross-country races: Maxim Vylegzhanin led a Russian 1-2 sweep in a cross-country World Cup skiathlon race in Demino, Russia, Sunday for

his first victory of the season, and Therese Johaug earned her first individual win of the year in the women’s race. Vylegzhanin finished the 15-kilometer classic and 15-kilometer freestyle race in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 37.6 seconds. His teammate Illia Chernousov was six seconds behind in second place. Johaug, who was part of Norway’s winning team in a 4x5-kilometer relay in November, ran away from the pack with four kilometers left in the 7.5-kilometer classic and 7.5-kilometer freestyle race. She was timed in 42 minutes, 41.4 seconds. • Svendsen wins Oslo biathlon World Cup race: Norway’s Emil Hegle Svendsen raced past Andreas Birnbacher of Germany in the finishing stretch to win the men’s 15-kilometer mass start in front of a cheering home crowd at a biathlon World Cup event on Sunday in Oslo, Norway. Svendsen missed two targets but caught up with leader Birnbacher after the fourth shooting round. He completed the race in 40 minutes, 44.1 seconds. Birnbacher shot clean to finish second, 6.3 seconds behind, while Russia’s Evgeniy Garanichev finished third, 17.8 seconds behind.

Cycling • Boonen wins opening stage of Tour of Qatar: Tom Boonen of Belgium won the opening stage of the Tour of Qatar on Sunday in Doha, finishing four seconds ahead of Adam Blythe of Britain. The former world road racing champion, riding for the Omega Pharma Quick-Step team, completed the 88.5-mile first stage in 3 hours, 11 minutes, 22 seconds. BMC Racing Team’s Blythe was followed by Peter Sagan of Liquigas-Cannondale, six seconds back in third. Tyler Farrar of Garmin-Barracuda was fourth.

Bruins get 4-1 win over Capitals

No. 7 Duke suffers OT loss to Miami The Associated Press DURHAM, N.C. — Leave it to the biggest player on Miami’s roster to put the Hurricanes on his back and carry them to their most impressive victory in quite a while. Reggie Johnson — all 6-foot-10 and 284 pounds of him — scored five of his careerhigh 27 points in overtime of Miami’s 78-74 upset of No. 7 Duke on Sunday. Johnson added a season-high 12 rebounds and was a handful all game for the Blue Devils to deal with. Miami outrebounded them 48-43 and outscored them 38-26 in the paint. “I feel I had the hot hand the whole game,” Johnson said, adding that first-year coach Jim Larranaga “was trying to ride me a whole lot. My teammates found me in good positions — catch and score.” Kenny Kadji added 15 points for the Hurricanes (14-7, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who blew a 16-point lead in the second half, then regrouped to claim their first big victory for their new coach. “To come in here and play with the kind of poise we did, play the kind of defense we did — especially in the first half and in the overtime — was something that we can be very, very proud of,” Larranaga said. That poise gave Miami its first victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium and just its second win over Duke since joining the ACC. The Hurricanes are on their first four-game winning streak since 2008 and have won three consecutive ACC road games for the first time. Seth Curry scored 22 points and freshman Austin Rivers added 20 for the Blue Devils (19-4, 6-2), who appeared listless while falling into that deep deficit before waking up with about 16 minutes left. Then, they missed all six of their free throws in overtime and wound up being beaten at home by a Florida-based conference rival for the second time this season.

Kyle Stanley chips out of the desert and onto the 17th green during the final round of the Phoenix Open Sunday in Scottsdale, Ariz. Stanley came from behind to win the tournament, scoring a final round 65, for a tournament total of 15-under par.

Stanley rallies for Phoenix title The Associated Press SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Kyle Stanley rebounded from a devastating loss to win the Phoenix Open, overcoming an eight-stroke deficit Sunday in a comeback as unlikely as his collapse last week at Torrey Pines. In tears seven days ago in San Diego after blowing a big lead — dropping the final strokes with a triple-bogey 8 on the final hole — and losing a playoff, Stanley took advantage of Spencer Levin’s meltdown Sunday to win his first PGA Tour title. “I’m not sure what I’m thinking right now,” Stanley said. “I just needed to focus on playing golf. I needed to put last week behind me.” He cried again, this time tears of joy. “I just want to thank my mom and dad. They’ve done a lot for me. I’m speechless,” Stanley said in the scoring area moments after the victory. Ben Crane had a 66 to finish a stroke back. Levin, six strokes ahead entering the round and seven in front after one hole, shot a 75 to finish two strokes behind Stanley. “I just didn’t have it,” Levin said. “Maybe I was looking ahead too


the par-5 18th. But his third shot had too much spin and didn’t get high enough on the green, spinning quickly down the slope and into the water. He three-putted from 45 feet for the triple bogey, then lost to Brandt Snedeker on the second playoff hole when his 5-foot par putt caught the right edge of the cup. In other events on Sunday: Paul Lawrie takes Qatar Masters DOHA, Qatar — Former British Open champion Paul Lawrie chipped in for an eagle and a birdie on his way to winning the Qatar Open, shooting a 7-under 65 to hold off Jason Day and Peter Hanson. Lawrie finished with a 15-under total of 201 to win his seventh European Tour event and his second in Qatar. The 43-year-old Scot becomes the second oldest winner on the tour behind Miguel Angel Jimenez. Boeljon wins Australian Ladies title GOLD COAST, Australia — Christel Boeljon of the Netherlands birdied the final hole to win the Australian Ladies Masters by one stroke. Boeljon closed with a 4-under 68 in the final round to finish at 21 under at Royal Pines, one shot ahead of overnight leader So Yeon Ryu and Kim Ha-neul of South Korea and Italy’s Diana Luna.

much and trying too hard. What are you going to do? I tried my best.” The 24-year-old Stanley, the long-hitting former Clemson star from Gig Harbor, Wash., birdied the par-5 13th and par-4 14th to take a one-stroke lead at 15 under. Levin, winless on the PGA Tour, birdied the 14th to regain a share of the lead, but dropped back with a double-bogey 7 on the par-5 15th. “I really feel for him,” Stanley said. “You don’t want to wish that on anyone. He’s a very good player. ... I feel bad for him.” Stanley parred the final three holes, playing a great recovery shot from under cactus to the right of the short par-4 17th. He birdied Nos. 2, 3, 8, 9 and 11 to get to 13 under, and within three strokes of the faltering Levin. Levin birdied No. 4 to reach 18 under, but bogeyed Nos. 4 and 6 and dropped two more strokes on Nos. 11 and 12 to let Stanley into the mix. “I don’t really know,” Levin said. “I felt all right early.” Last week at Torrey Pines, Stanley led by seven shots early in the final round, and still had a fourshot lead as he stood on the tee at



Heat hold back Raptors The Associated Press MIAMI — LeBron James took a hard foul and clearly was not happy. So the next time he saw the ball, he made sure no Toronto player could reach him. James’ steal and dunk with just more than two minutes left gave Miami some breathing room, and the Heat held on to defeat the Toronto Raptors 95-89 on Sunday. James finished with 30 points and Dwyane Wade added 25 for the Heat (18-6), who won for the 10th time in its past 12 games and moved within one game of Chicago (20-6) for the best record in the Eastern Conference. “We stuck with our principles,” James said. “And that’s to defend.” Chris Bosh scored 12 points against his former team, which saw a 15-point edge trimmed to three in the final minutes but never surrendered the lead. Mario Chalmers added 11 for Miami. DeMar DeRozan scored 25 for the Raptors, who got 17 apiece from Jerryd Bayless and Linas Kleiza. “I liked our disposition,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “I liked the way we approached it. I liked the way we competed.” Kleiza’s three-pointer with just under five minutes left got Toronto within eight, and another three from Bayless as the shot clock expired on the next Raptors’ possession cut the Miami lead to 85-80 — the closest the game had been since early in the third quarter. Bayless scored again to get the Raptors within three and cap a 12-0 Toronto run. And after Bosh missed a fadeaway from the right baseline, Bayless tried a three-pointer to tie. It bounced off, and with the game in the balance, James went to work. He was fouled by James Johnson and made two free throws with 2:20 left, not before letting anyone around him know he wasn’t pleased with the physicality of the play. The next time James touched the ball, he didn’t give the Raptors a chance to foul him — his steal and two-handed slam with 2:07 left gave Miami an 89-82 edge and all but ensured the win. “Good back-to-back plays for our team and I was happy I was able to make them,” James said. James — who leads the NBA in first-quarter scoring this season (9.1 points a game) — got off to another big start, making his first five shots and scoring 12 points in the opening quarter. He’s now shooting just under 60 percent in first quarters this season. While scoring wasn’t an issue, the Heat were far from in the clear. Casey told the Raptors that establish-

ing pace and limiting turnovers — especially early — would be big keys. Seemed like his team got the message: The Raptors matched a season-high with 27 points in the first quarter, and turned the ball over only five times in the first half. That, combined with DeRozan tying his season best with 16 points in the opening two quarters, kept the Raptors close. “It just shows that we can compete with anybody,” DeRozan said. Miami’s lead was only 53-48 at the break, and that was even after James and Wade combined to score 22 points in the opening quarter on eight for nine shooting. “We knew it was going to be one of those grind-out kind of games,” Wade said. “We understand that a lot of teams do that when they play the Heat — come out on fire.” Also on Sunday: Celtics. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 98 Grizzlies . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 80 BOSTON — Kevin Garnett matched his season-high with 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead Boston to its fourth straight win.

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Tim Thomas’ return to the nation’s capital was less political and more successful. Playing about 10 blocks from the White House — a place he famously avoided two weeks ago — Thomas carried a shutout deep into the third period Sunday as the Boston Bruins snapped a two-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Thomas’ no-show, accompanied by a Facebook post about a federal government that he said was “out of control,” overshadowed his teammates’ day of celebration when the reigning Stanley Cup champions were honored by President Barack Obama on Jan. 23. He didn’t play the next day, when the Bruins lost 5-3 to the Capitals. But last year’s Vezina Trophy winner and playoff MVP was in fine form for a Super Bowl Sunday matinee, the first time all season he’s played on back-to-back days. Among his 35 saves was a quick reflex stop against Alex Ovechkin when the Capitals forward had an open look after a rebound. “Tim’s capable of doing that for us, and he’s done that a lot in the past,” Boston coach Claude Julien said. “And I thought he was on top of his game today.” Thomas was booed pregame, but there’s no telling how much of it was the standard disdain shown by Washington fans for any opposing star player. “I think I’m pretty much booed at every arena, wouldn’t you say?” Thomas said. “Even before anything happened?” Still, he acknowledged it was good to have a trip back to Washington that was all about hockey. “Yeah, yeah, it was. This is more normal,” he said. “This is what I’m used to, that’s for sure.” Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand scored first-period goals, and Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley tallied in the third for the Bruins, who built a 3-0 lead and rediscovered some offensive pop after scoring only once during their two-game skid. Marcus Johansson scored the lone goal for the Capitals, who have lost three of four and haven’t scored a powerplay goal in seven games. Washington also missed a chance to overtake the Florida Panthers once again for first place in the Southeast Division.

World Cup super-combined event in danger of fading By Kelley McMillan New York Times News Service

Men’s World Cup ski racing came this weekend in the snow-covered village of Chamonix, France, where fans will see the sport’s endangered species: the super-combined event. Known as the super combi, it is composed of one downhill run, usually held in the morning, followed by an afternoon slalom run. The event was introduced to the World Cup in 2006, but it might not exist beyond next season. The notion to scrap the super combined was initially raised last season but resurfaced at meetings last month at which World Cup ski racing’s governing body discussed eliminating the event over the next few years. The competition schedule for 201213 was released last spring, and it features only one supercombined race. The proposed calendar for next season will be confirmed this spring. Some skiers and coaches say the event offers an unfair advantage to slalom skiers, is boring to watch and diminishes the battle for the World Cup overall title, which measures a skier’s performance over the season and is the sport’s top prize. Super-combined supporters, like Ivica Kostelic, a Croatian skier who leads the men’s World Cup super-combined and overall standings, argue otherwise. They also worry that if the World Cup eliminated the event, the Olympics might follow, taking away a medal event. “Nowadays, the Olympics are getting bigger and bigger and we have more and more sports,” Kostelic said. “Soon there will be medals for snowman making and snowball fights. We must fight that we don’t lose this medal at the Olympics, and that’s why we need to have combined on the World Cup.” While the event has its roots in the traditional combined, ski racing’s oldest discipline that features one downhill and two slalom runs, the current version — one run of slalom — was designed to level the playing field among competitors. The traditional combined, with its two-run slalom leg, was said to favor slalom specialists. The newer format has done little to quell critics. The Swiss skier Didier Cuche, who leads the World Cup downhill standings and has won World Cup titles in both speed and technical disciplines but never the supercombined or overall titles, says the event should be scratched. “The super combi favors certain racers, especially the slalom guys,” he said. “If the slalom guy has the courage to go downhill and is technically good, he can win the combined.” Cuche and others contend that successful super-combined skiers need only possess the bare minimum downhill skills to win the event and, therefore, the super combined

Austria’s Romed Baumann takes a jump on his way to set the fastest time during the downhill portion of a men’s World Cup super-combined, in Chamonix, France, Sunday.

Baumann wins super-combined CHAMONIX, France — Romed Baumann held off a strong challenge from promising Frenchman Alexis Pinturault to win Sunday’s World Cup supercombined race for his second career victory. Baumann led Pinturault by a comfortable 3.27 seconds after posting the fastest time in the morning’s downhill run on the La Verte des Houches course, and the Austrian held firm in the afternoon slalom session to win by 1.10 seconds. Switzerland’s Beat Feuz was 1:19 behind Baumann in third place. — The Associated Press

is not an accurate test of the best overall skier. The bigger consequence is that winners of super-combined events accrue points toward the World Cup overall title. Opponents say supercombined skiers unfairly earn points toward ski racing’s crowning achievement largely because of the one event most racers do not participate in. Essentially, the super combined shrinks the pool of candidates battling for the overall title by eliminating some of the world’s best skiers from the running. “I think it should go away because it would be more interesting for the overall fight,” Cuche said. Increasingly, ski racers are moving toward specialization, either racing the speed events (downhill and super-G) or the technical disciplines (giant slalom and slalom). Rare is the racer who is a master of both. “There’s only one super combined left on the proposed calendar for next year

Summit wrestlers will also be in Southern Oregon, competing in the 5A Special District 4 regional in Eagle Point. Mountain View’s J.T. Ayers (106 pounds) and Kyler Ayers (132) and Bend’s Willy Abt (160), Gavin Gerdes (170), Kenny Dailey (182) and Dre Golden (195) all are ranked among the top five at their weights in 5A by the OWF. The top four wrestlers from each weight class at the regional tournaments move on to their respective state competitions. Redmond’s nineteam regional includes Roseburg, which has won four of the past five 6A state titles. Bend’s three high schools are part of an 11-team regional that includes Eagle Point, Churchill and Marshfield, all of which finished in the top 10 at last year’s 5A state tourney. Meanwhile, Central Oregon’s prep basketball teams are putting the finishing touches on the regular season. Most teams have just two weeks of

— Wengen,” Gunther Hujara, the men’s race director for the sport’s world governing body, known as FIS, said about next season’s competition in Switzerland. “But this will be difficult to keep alive. If you have no combined racers, then we have no start list.” Because of the limited fields for the event, some say that super combined is dull to watch. “In terms of excitement, a lot of coaches, athletes and I tend to be on this side — think it’s not that exciting because you have a lot of athletes who aren’t really in the game,” said Sasha Rearick, the coach of the U.S. men’s ski team. In 13 years on the World Cup circuit, Kostelic has never won a downhill race. But he has nine super-combined victories and one overall title. On the other hand, in 18 years of World Cup racing, Cuche, largely considered one of ski racing’s greatest competitors, has 12 downhill wins, no super-combined victories and no overall title. Bode Miller is the rare skier who has thrived in all events. He has earned Olympic medals, World Cup titles and victories across all disciplines — including gold in the super combined at the 2010 Vancouver Games. Rearick said, “What FIS and the IOC need to work out is, in order to keep it an Olympic medal, does it have to stay in the World Cup as a full globe?” Kostelic leads the World Cup overall standings and the super combined rankings. So should he be considered the king of the ski universe? “It’s a good test,” Rearick said. “Is it the perfect test? I wouldn’t say so. I think the perfect test for the best overall skier is the overall World Cup title. It’s accumulation of points throughout a whole season, in different snow, different course sets, different hills. That’s the best test for the best skier in the world.”

regular-season games before play-in contests for berths in the state postseason begin. Heading into this week, boys teams from Mountain View (Intermountain Conference), Madras (Tri-Valley Conference) and Sisters (Sky-Em League) all lead their respective league standings. In girls basketball, Bend High (IMC), Madras (Tri-Valley) and Crook County (4A Special District 1) are all in first place in their conference races. Catch our local standouts while you can. State swimming is scheduled for Gresham, and state wrestling will take place in Portland. In basketball, the 5A boys and girls state tournaments are set for Eugene, while 4A girls and boys state tourneys will be staged in Corvallis. There’s sure to be a few Central Oregon state champions in the bunch, and there’s still time to watch many of them close to home. — Reporter: 541-383-0305,

Brady will get another chance B y Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — om Brady was one of the last ones out of the shower, perhaps hoping some extra hot water would help take the sting out of a crushing Super Bowl loss. In a nearly deserted New England Patriots locker room, he sat, wearily pulling on his boots, the pained look on his face never changing. A few moments earlier, Joe Montana had walked down the hallway just outside, but there would be no meeting of Super Bowl greats. Nor would Brady join Montana in another way, as a four-time NFL champion — something he seemed destined to be at one point in the fourth quarter. This was not a night when legacies would be debated. That will have to wait for another time, another place, another Super Bowl. For the second time in the past five Super Bowls, Brady had come up oh-so-short, beaten late once again by the New York Giants and another quarterback starting to make a pretty good name for himself, too. Brady wasn’t going to come out and say it, but he was blaming himself. Had to, because he had the ball in his hand to win the game with 57 seconds left and couldn’t deliver the long touchdown drive that Patriots fans and even his teammates thought would be forthcoming. “It’s Tom Brady,” said Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington. “A lot of people were thinking whoever had the ball last was going to win.” Not on this night. The two-point safety on Brady’s first play of the night turned out to be costly. Without it, the Patriots would have needed just a field goal to win, not a touchdown. Then there was the catch Wes Welker always makes that he failed to make. It came on a Brady pass with 4 minutes left when it appeared the Patriots were ready to drive for a score that might have put the game away. It’s a team game, Brady kept repeating afterward. It was the team, he kept saying, that came up short. “We all wish we could have done a bit more,” he said. “That’s what it comes to in football. It always comes down to one or two plays. If you make them you’re celebrating. If you don’t, you don’t sleep for a week.” Brady looked like he surely would be having some sleepless nights. The celebrity quarterback with the celebrity wife sat at a podium afterwards, a few days growth of beard on his face and his hair nowhere near perfect. He tried to be philosophical, tried to say all the right things, but there was a certain hollowness to the words and he looked like he would like to be somewhere, anywhere, else.


Jeff Roberson / The Associated Press

New York Giants Deon Grant (34), Jacquian Williams (57) and Kenny Phillips (21) block the final pass to New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (81) during Sunday night’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis. The Giants won 21-17.

Giants Continued from D1 Wild doesn’t begin to describe this game — an uncharacteristic safety on Brady on the Patriots’ first play; a spectacular sideline catch by the Giants’ Mario Manningham on the winning drive; and the Patriots’ desperation heave into the end zone on the final play. “He always keeps the thrill in it,” Archie Manning said of his youngest son. “It’s good they were close so many times, but it wouldn’t bother me if they’d won a few of those by 31-7.” Manning led six comeback victories during the season and set an NFL record with 15 fourth-quarter touchdown passes. He showed that brilliance in the clutch when he completed five passes, including the improbable 38-yarder to Manningham, on the winning drive. On second down at the Patriots 6 and with only one timeout remaining, Belichick had his defense stand up as Bradshaw took the handoff. Bradshaw thought about stopping short of the end zone, then tumbled in untouched. “I was yelling to him, ‘Don’t score, don’t score,’ ” Manning said. “He tried to stop, but he fell into the end zone.” Brady couldn’t answer in the final 57 seconds, although his desperation pass into the end zone on the final play fell just behind Aaron Hernandez and beyond the grasp of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski. New England (15-4), winner of 10 straight since a loss to the Giants in November, was done. “I thought we played very competitive. ... We were in the lead for a good part of the game. We just came up a couple of plays short,” Belichick said. “You don’t feel good after you lose this game.” Brady headed off with his head bowed, holding his helmet, while around him was the wild celebration by the Giants, NFL champions for the eighth — and perhaps most unlikely — time. It was their fourth Super Bowl title, and the first for a team that finished the regular season 9-7. “Great toughness, great faith, and great plays by a number of guys today,” Manning said, deflecting some of the attention. Still, he beat Brady. And he went one up on Peyton, who has one Super Bowl victory of his own but didn’t play this season as he recovered from neck surgery.

Mark Humphrey / The Associated Press

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick walks down the field after talking to quarterback Tom Brady in the final seconds of the Super Bowl Sunday night in Indianapolis.

“It just feels good to win a Super Bowl, it doesn’t matter where you are,” Manning said. It was the fifth trip to a Super Bowl for Brady and Belichick, tying the record. And it looked like a successful one when they stormed back from a 9-0 deficit and led 17-9 in the third quarter. But the Giants, who reached New England territory on every possession except a kneeldown at the end of the first half, got field goals of 38 and 33 yards from Lawrence Tynes. And it looked like Tynes, who kicked them into the Super Bowl four years ago at Green Bay and again this year at San Francisco, both in overtime, would get called on again. Then Belichick, known to try just about anything in a game, took a risk that didn’t pay off. The Giants are the first Super Bowl winner that was outscored during the regular season. They were 6-2 after that 24-20 victory at New England, then lost four straight and five of six. Coach Tom Coughlin insisted “the prize” was still within reach. Now the Giants are holding tight to that Vince Lombardi Trophy. “What I was concerned with was these guys making their own history,” Coughlin said. “This is such a wonderful thing, these guys carving their own history.” New England had the ball for all of one play in the first 11 1⁄2 minutes, and that play was an utter failure, a rare poor decision by Brady. After Steve Weatherford’s punt was downed at the New England 6, Brady dropped to pass in the end zone and had time. With everyone covered and Giants defensive end Justin Tuck finally coming free

to provide pressure, Brady heaved the ball downfield while still in the pocket. Only problem: No Patriots receivers were anywhere near the pass. The Giants were awarded a safety for Brady’s grounding in the end zone. Manning, meanwhile, couldn’t have been more on target early, hitting six receivers in the first period, completing his first nine throws, a Super Bowl record. He also was aided by Ahmad Bradshaw, who hardly looked like a running back with a bad foot. Bradshaw broke a 24-yard run, and New England made another critical mistake by having 12 men on the field on a thirdand-3 on which the Giants fumbled. Instead, New York got a first down at the 6, and two plays later Victor Cruz beat James Ihedigbo on a slant to make it 9-0, prompting Cruz to break into his signature salsa move. Manning’s first incompletion didn’t come until 1:19 into the second quarter. At that point, it was 9-3 after Stephen Gostkowski’s 29-yard field goal. The Patriots got to the Giants’ 11, but All-Pro DE Jason Pierre-Paul blocked a third-down pass. Soon after, when the Patriots had a three-and-out and Pierre-Paul blocked another throw, Belichick and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien had a quick discussion. Then O’Brien, soon to take over as Penn State coach, went over to the struggling Brady. The talk must have helped. On the final series of the opening half, Brady was masterful. Starting at his 4, and ignoring the last time the Patriots began a series in the shadow of the end zone, he was vintage Brady. With New York’s vaunted pass rush disappearing, Brady went 10-for-10 for 98 yards, capping the drive that included two Patriots penalties with Woodhead’s 4-yard TD reception with 8 seconds to go in the half. Hernandez and Woodhead each had four catches on the drive that, stunningly, put New England ahead despite being outplayed for so much of the first 30 minutes. Brady kept firing — and hitting — in the third quarter, with five more completions. The Giants didn’t come within shouting distance of the record-setting quarterback. He capped a 79-yard drive to open the second half with a 12-yard TD to Hernandez, but then the game turned. Again.

Pat Semansky / The Associated Press

New York Giants defensive back Derrick Martin (22) celebrates as New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady leaves the field after Sunday night’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis.

“We fought to the end and I’m proud of that,” he said. “Then we got to the 50 or so and we just ran out of time.” Not before trying one final desperation pass that was batted down in the end zone, just barely out of the reach of Rob Gronkowski. So close — again. No one even brought up the 16 straight passes Brady completed, breaking the record of 13 straight set by Montana in the 1990 Super Bowl. It was a nice run in the second and third quarters, but nice runs don’t always win games and on this night it was a record Brady would probably just as soon forget. The one he wanted was four Super Bowl wins by a quarterback, something that would have put him in the elite company of Montana and Terry Bradshaw. Not just for himself, but for a team he has now led to a remarkable five Super Bowl appearances in 11 years. The safety call for intentional grounding on a pass from the end zone on the first play of the game got the Patriots off on the wrong foot, though Brady wasn’t going to secondguess the official on a ball thrown long over the middle. The Welker play late stung the most, though Brady wasn’t going to second-guess a receiver who usually makes it look so easy the pair often seem to just be playing catch on the field. Still, it’s got to be the one running through his head as he tosses in bed through the sleepless nights ahead. Had Welker caught the ball, thrown just a bit high and behind him, the Patriots would have been around the Giants 20 with a two-point lead and the game in hand. Had he caught it in stride, the game would have likely been over right there. “It came down to one play at the end of the game,” Brady said. “If we make it we’re world

champions.” A few minutes earlier, Welker had been in the same room, staring straight ahead with reddened eyes. If Brady wasn’t blaming him he was blaming himself, saying that it “comes to the biggest moment of my life and (I) don’t come up with it.” But his quarterback still had his back. “Wes was running down the field and it looked like they messed the coverage up a little bit and I threw it to him,” Brady said. “(He) went up to try and make it, as he always does, and we just couldn’t connect. He’s a hell of a player. I’ll keep throwing the ball to him for as long as I possibly can.” Four years ago in Phoenix, Brady lost his first Super Bowl in four tries in a game that was agonizingly similar to this one. Now he’s lost his past two and, instead of wondering how many he’ll win in his career, people will be wondering if he can win another one — and finally reach that Montana-Bradshaw plateau. “I’d rather come to this game and lose than not get here,” Brady said. “I won’t stop trying to get here.” And a few minutes later he walked out of the stadium with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, the dour look still on his face. Not to worry, though. Even after a loss as heartbreaking as this, the odds still are pretty good that Brady and the Patriots will be back.

Pow er Continued from D1 “Don’t get me wrong, heart-rate monitors are great intensity-measuring devices,” Friel wrote in a recent blog post. “But heart rate by itself actually doesn’t tell you much.” Friel explained how heart rate is affected by many factors. Power numbers — watts — do not lie. Instead, they provide a read on one’s current fitness level and indicate weaknesses, as well as providing direction on how and where to proceed. I spoke about power meters with several different cyclists and coaches — including Bend resident and local mountaineer Christopher Wright, who recently started using a power meter on his bicycle — and the conversations across the board were similar: power meters are where it’s at. “As a mountain athlete who’s always trained but never been particularly disciplined or focused, I’ve never found another (gauge) that so clearly lets me know how hard I am or am not trying,” said Wright. “I’ve used a heart-rate monitor for years, even in conjunction with the same cycling workouts I’m doing now with power, and I’ve noticed a huge difference in some of my efforts that I would never have noticed without it.” Far from being a new tool, power meters entered the cycling scene in the early 1990s and have since grown in popularity. Today, power meters are available in three main designs: crank-based, hub-based and pedal-based. Crank-based power meters have been around the longest, have seen the most innovations and are generally the most reliable. They operate by measuring a rider’s wattage output via strain gauges positioned in the bicycle’s “spider” (the part between the right crank arm and the chainrings) and displaying the output on a computerized head unit. Bits of data are collected from the force of both of the rider’s legs at the crank arm, making crankbased meters reliable and fairly accurate. A major drawback to crankbased power meters, however, is the cost. Top brands like SRM (Schoberer Rad Messtechnik) and Quarq CinQo run between $1,800 and $5,000. Among the hub-based designs, PowerTap is the most popular. It consists of a power meter housed in the rear hub of a bicycle’s wheel. As the rider applies force to the bi-

That torque is then converted into watts and displayed on a head unit. “For the budget-minded cyclists I would really recommend a PowerTap,” said local cyclist and coach Brig Brandt. “The iBike (another, less popular power meter) is cheaper, but it doesn’t actually measure power … it measures all the other forces … and then calculates power.” He added that “should one of these variables change, the power data is no longer accurate.” The PowerTap is comparatively less expensive than any of the crank-based meters. Nevertheless, initial investment can run anywhere from $500 to $1,800 for hubs alone, and from $600 to $3,200 for complete wheel sets with integrated hubs. Yet another power meter is being introduced in 2012: the pedal-based meter. Expected to be available this March, the first-ever pedal-based meters will be offered by two leading companies: Garmin and Look. Garmin’s Vector pedals and Look’s KeO Power Pedals will operate by housing in each pedal spindle several strain gauges that measure the power output of each of a rider’s legs separately.

“As far as Garmin and Polar (Look-Polar) pedal-based systems, these could be pretty big game changers in the power-meter market,” Brandt claimed. “If the price comes down a little, then they could be a legitimate threat to Quarq and SRM.” Lightweight, easily interchangeable among bikes and potentially more accurate and comprehensive than any other power-meter design, pedal-based power meters have a lot going for them. So far, the major drawback, again, will be cost. Garmin’s pedals will run $1,500 and up, while Look’s will range from $1,900 to $2,300, second in price only to the SRM. As Wright offered, “I wish I had a PowerTap for climbing, skiing, running, and just about every other type of training I do. It’s like training by numbers.” No matter what type of power meter you choose, the meter is sure to help make you a stronger, more knowledgeable and more wellrounded rider. — Laura Winberry is a freelance journalist who lives in Bend.
